All Day in Fatima

by Steve Ray on September 17, 2013

What a great day and perfect beginning for this pilgrimage. We spent the whole day in Fatima and our local guides were not only extremely knowledgeable but also deeply spiritual.

The morning was an intro to the Shrine of Fatima, then walks thru the village and homes of the children, visiting the locations of the apparitions and their parish church, followed by a great lunch and shopping.

The afternoon started with Mass at the place Our Lady visited the three children and where the sun danced with 70,000 observers. Then the energetic Sister Angela, Rome’s representative for the cause of Blessed Francisco and Blessed Jacinta’s canonization gave us a great summary of Fatima and its message.

After dinner at local cafes we gathered at the Shrine for the Rosary in many languages and the Marian procession under the stars.

It was a great day!
