Suddenly, they saw a bright light, they judge that it was a lightning, they decided to go away, but just down in their path, another flash lit up the place, and on the top of a small holm oak (where now stands the Chapel of Apparitions), they saw "a Lady more brilliant than the sun" from whose hands hung a white rosary.

History of Apparitions

 

On May 13, 1917, three children were pasturing their little flock in the Cova da Iria, nearby Fatima, on Vila Nova de Ourem municipality, today is the Diocese of Leiria-Fatima. They called Lúcia de Jesus, with age 10 , Francisco and Jacinta Marto, her cousins, with 9 and 7 years.

Our Lady told the three little shepherds that it was necessary to pray a lot and invited them to return to the Cova da Iria during five consecutive months, on day 13 of each month on that same hour. So, the children did that and on the 13th day of June, July, September and October, the Lady appeared again and spoke to them in the Cova da Iria. On 19th August, the apparition took place at Valinhos, about 500 meters from Aljustrel, because on the 13th, the children had been taken by the local Administrator to Vila Nova de Ourém.

The last apparition, on October 13, where attended about 70,000 people, Our Lady told them that it was the "Lady of the Rosary" and they had to build a chapel in her honor. After the apparition, everyone that was there, witnessed the miracle promised to the three children in July and September: the sun, resembling a silver disc, it could be gazed without difficulty and whirling on itself like a wheel of fire. After that, Lucy was a religious of St. Dorothy, Our Lady appeared to her again in Spain (December 10, 1925 and February 15, 1926, in the Convent of Pontevedra, and on the night of 13th or 14th of June 1929 at the Convent of Tuy), requested the devotion of the five first Saturdays (to pray the rosary, meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary, confess and receive Holy Communion, to repare the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary) and the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculated same heart. Our Lady announced this on July 13, 1917.

Years later, Sister Lucia also says that between April and October 1916, an Angel had appeared to the three seers, for three times, twice in the Cabeço and once at the yard of the well of Lucia's house, inviting to pray and penance.

Since 1917, didn't ceased to come to the Cova da Iria, from around the world, firstly, in the 13th of each month, on summer and winter vacations, and now more visitors came on weekends
