Fatima is a sacred place in the heart of Portugal, but also a symbol for the entire Christian world.
Here a miracle occurred.
During World War I, on May 5, 1917, Pope Benedict XV invited Catholics around the world to unite in prayer for peace through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
After eight days, Maria gave people an answer to their prayers, appearing on May 13, 1917 at 3 Portuguese children: Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, who graze their sheep on Iria di Conca.
Maria asked them to return to that place on the 13th of each month.
In his apparitions, the last one, on October 13, 1917, Maria asked us to recite the rosary every day, to pray for sinners, to remove the sin from our lives etc.
Pope John Paul has lodged the bullet that could be fatal in the day of May 13, 1981, in the crown of the statue of our Lady of Fatima.
Today, Fatima attracts millions of pilgrims who ask through Mary, wonderful graces from God.
