Children Experienced Marian Apparition in Fátima, Portugal

These statues of three shepherd children are Lúcia dos Santos with her cousins Francisco Marto and Jacinta Marto who experienced a Marian Apparition in 1917 at Fátima, Portugal. This vision of the Virgin Mary has been heralded by the Catholic Church since 1930. In fact, Pope John Paul II credits his failed assassination attempt on this feast day in 1981 to the original miracle and gave the bullet to Santuário de Fátima.
