PORTUGAL PILGRIMAGES

Fatima, the capital of peace, offers a roadmap of temples and shrines. It gives pilgrims the chance to join the celebrations marking the apparitions with an international rosary, candlelight processions and midnight mass. Between May and October 1917, the Madonna appeared to three young visionaries. News of the visions spread quickly and on the last occasion the Madonna appeared to the children and around 50,000 people gathered to watch. The vision of Mary also bestowed three secrets to a nun, which remained closely guarded for many years. Then in 1944, close to death, Sister Lucia wrote down the secrets and they were sent to Rome where they were locked in the Vatican archives.
