Fatima in Lucia’s own words

Sr. Lucia, who died on February 13, 2005, was the last of the three shepherds who had witnessed the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917. This book contains the testimony given in writing by Sister Lucia in her letters addressed to the Bishop of Leiria, on the events of Fatima since 1915. Lucia is not a colourful writer, but this adds to the charm of the memoir. Under obedience to her bishop, she records the lives of the shepherd children and the details of the apparitions with humility and candour. She relates what she remembers regarding what she and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta saw and experienced at that time. In this presentation of her memoirs, Lucia bequeaths to us information of highly historical value and shares also with us a spiritual experience that moved countless Christians throughout decades.

Here she offers an account of the facts and a description of the characters of the soon to become saints Jacinta and Francisco Marto. Their lives is a great example of sanctification, love for Our Lord and reparation with the generosity of their sacrifices for the conversion of sinners. They will become the first children to be canonized without having been martyrs. Ordinary children, shepherds in an unknown little village of Portugal, became the instruments that God needed to change the course of the 20th century and that of history itself.

The text presented here, whose manuscript is kept in the Archives of the Diocese of Leiria-Fatima, was written between 1935 and 1941. More than a million copies of this volume, published in several different languages, have already been sold.
