On Sunday May 13th, 1917, the children were pasturing their flock as usual at the Cova da Iria, which was about a mile from their homes. They were playing when suddenly a bright shaft of light pierced the air. The lady spoke to them and said: “Fear not! I will not harm you.” “Where are you from?” the children asked. “I am from heaven” the beautiful lady replied, gently raising her hand towards the distant horizon. “What do you want of me?”, Lucia asked. ” I came to ask you to come here for six consecutive months, on the thirteenth day, at this same hour. I will tell you later who I am and what I want.”


It was Mary’s final appearance, on Oct. 13, 1917

(exactly 33 years, to the day, after Pope Leo XIII’s

vision), that became the most famous. An estimated

70,000 people were in attendance at the site,

anticipating the Virgin’s final visit and with many

fully expecting that she would work a great miracle.
