The Mystical Apparitions Of Our Lady Of Fatima

From 1916 to 1917, a series of mysterious events occurred at a small mountain village called Fatima, located in Portugal.  There are many different theories as to what actually took place there, but the general consensus is that it was nothing short of miraculous.  Even more amazing though is that the individuals in the center of these occurrences were three, humble, illiterate shepherd children, named  Lucia Abóbora, aged ten, and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto, aged nine and seven respectively.  They were chosen by a celestial entity to be major players in an otherworldly adventure.  It was a very unlikely trio, but historically, angelic, and other heavenly emissaries, have often chosen children to be the recipients of visions, and prophecies.  Was this actually an encounter with an extraterrestrial entity?  In this edition of Angel Watchers, I am presenting a brief introduction to the Fatima enigma.  In 1952, the film "The Miracle Of Our Lady Of Fatima" was released.  Even though the movie itself was flawed, it managed to popularize the Fatima apparitions in ways that the media of the time were not able to do.  The movie contains, among other things, many factual errors.  There is a major mistake right at the very beginning of the film, when the narrator says "Here is Fatima on Sunday, May 15, 1917".  Well, in reality, the correct date was actually May 13, 1917.  Also, this was not the first apparition as the movie seemed to imply.  The apparitions actually began during the month of  April, 1915.   Errors aside, and viewed as a devotional tool, the movie served its purpose though.  Please click on the video widget below to watch a scene from"The Miracle Of Our Lady Of Fatima".  It stars Susan Whitney as Lucia, Sammy Ogg as Francisco, and Sherry Jackson as Jacinta.  Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.
