Watch The First Appearance Of The Angel At Fatima

Watch The First Appearance Of The Angel At Fatima

In 1916, the year before Mary appeared to them, the poor children Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco were leading their families’ flocks out to pasture when an angel appeared to them.

“We began to see,” Lucia later wrote in her memoirs, “in the distance, above the trees that stretched to the east, a light whiter than snow in the form of a young man, quite transparent, and as brilliant as crystal in the rays of the sun.”

As he came near we were able to see his features. We were astonished and absorbed and we said nothing to one another. And then he said:

Do not be afraid. I am the angel of peace. Pray with me.

He knelt, bending his forehead to the ground. With a supernatural impulse we did the same, repeating the words we heard him say:

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love You.

And he disappeared. He left us in an atmosphere of the supernatural that was so intense we were for a long time unaware of our own existence. The presence of God was so powerful and intimate that even among ourselves we could not speak.

On the next day, too, this same atmosphere held us bound, and it lessened and disappeared only gradually. None of us thought of talking about this apparition or any pledge of secrecy. We were locked in silence without having willed it.

Little did the children know, but this angel was just the prelude to the famous Marian apparitions they would receive the following year.

​One of the Sisters ran to the relics, next to the tabernacle, and prayed, ‘Shepherds, save this child, who is a child like you!’”
The Brazilian parents of the boy whose miraculous healing led to Saturday’s canonization of two of the Fatima children spoke recently of what happened.

“On March 3, 2013, before 8:00 p.m., our son Lucas, who was playing with his little sister Eduarda, fell out of a window from a height of 20 feet. He was five years old,” related the boy’s father, Joao Batista.

During a press conference held in advance of the pope’s arrival, João and his wife Lucila Yurie spoke amidst tears at the Fatima Shrine . The two Fatima visionaries, Jacinta and Francisco, were canonized by Pope Francis on Saturday 13th May, the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima.
