A Miracle In 1917

This week in 1917, the Miracle of the Sun was witnessed by an estimated 70,000 people in fields near Fatima, Portugal. The sun was said to appear as a spinning disc, and moved in a zigzag pattern. Three shepherd children had predicted the miracle would take place at this date and location after their reported encounters with an apparition of the Virgin Mary known as Our Lady of Fatima.

Although the first and second were revealed,There is debate about the third.Some say it has to do with the Pope being killed.The details however are still being kept secret by the Vatican

The illustration is a print by an Etsy artist."Lady of Fatima." She says"The traveling statue of Our Lady of Fatima has been around the world more than 30 times. She came to San Diego this year and I visited and photographed her many times."
