Here’s the first-hand account of the Dominican priest and sculptor who worked under the direction of Sr. Lucia — the last surviving witness to the 1917 Marian apparitions in Fatima — as she guided him in perfecting the famed statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Sr. Lucia insisted Our Lady’s hands be positioned just so, the tunic fall exactly the way she remembered, the star placed on the proper spot on the tunic, and the ball of light around her neck reaching almost to her waist. She would make corrections as Fr. Tom worked, and at times would even take one of the tools and make changes to his model. Fr. Tom emerged with far more than an exact replica of how Our Lady appeared; he came to understand — and recounts here in these pages — Sr. Lucia’s intimate explanations of what happened in Fatima, the spiritual meanings of the apparitions, whether the Consecration to Russia occurred, why the secrets had to remain secrets for so long, and why Mary chose to appear to three young shepherd children in rural Portugal. Fr. Tom reminds us that Fatima is a place of miracles, and he points us toward the penitential character of Our Lady’s message, especially the importance of praying the Rosary. Few books can provide such a penetrating, close encounter with a major Catholic event as Fr. McGlynn’s Vision of Fatima. And only this book leads us into the heart and mind of a Portuguese nun who met face to face with the Mother of God.

Vision of Fatima pursues the truth given at Cannes, France, the miracle described in Jeanne D'Arch In Banner of Nationhood, first of Short Lives of Saints. Lucia's Secret is uncovered through her actual visions as a contemplative, the Third Secret being "only what is written in Gospel & Revelation" (Lucia). The event of God's mercy now happening through the many martyrdoms of age of antichrist; Holy Spirit fulfilled upon all mankind, evidence of the statement of Immaculate Conception as Christ the redemption of all mankind (premise of BVD's first publication. Bernadette) being the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary predicted at Fatima. We walk in the footsteps of love, that direction given us in pathway to heaven. "Santa Lucia" is of today & always. Larisa paints irises & irises because she came to America by great sacrifice seeking for her own country, Russia, fulfillment for Fatima the promise given. Sharp cobblestones of fate cut our feet as we plod the shores of hell immortality of sin guided by the light of Immaculate Conception & Second Redemption in the "pentience" asked of Bernadette. There comes a time for the revelation of every secret & pope John Paul keeps Lucia a long time on earth by not yet disclosing hers but by unveiling a light given the children on his attempted assassination, for which their prayers & lives were his survival for Holy Church.

"For us, Fatima is a sign of the presence of faith, of the fact that it is precisely from the little ones that faith gains new strength, one which is not limited to the little ones but has a message for the entire world and touches history here and now, and sheds light on this history."--- Pope Benedict XVI "As was so dramatically obvious during the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Fatima in May 2010. Our Lady's apparitions in 1917 remain powerfully compelling for us today. There she was an evangelist, calling us to prayer, conversion of heart, and penance, pointing to Jesus and repeating her words at Cana, `Do whatever He tells you.' This book brings it all home."--- Most Reverend Timothy Dolan Archbishop of New York "Learn, live, and spread the message of Fatima! This is the express desire of Pope Benedict XVI. And Pope John Paul II once stated that the message of Fatima was more important now than in 1917! That is why this wonderful book on Fatima is so important. Fr. Apostoli has recaptured this heavenly message of urgency and hope for a new generation. Our world needs the message of Fatima more than ever, and I pray that many people are brought back to Jesus, Mary, and the Church through these pages."--- Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC Author, No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy "Fr. Apostoli's book tells us all we need to know about Our Lady's apparitions to the three children in Portugal in 1917. His brief and objective presentation of the facts surrounding the divine revelation not only informs the mind, but also moves the will to embrace and carry out the message of Fatima---prayer and penance---for the salvation of souls and world peace. The message is clear---pray the Rosary every day and offer up some sacrifices for the salvation of sinners and in reparation for sins against God and the Immaculate Heart of Mary."--- Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J. Author, Inside the Bible "In a manner which is most accessible and, at the same time, complete and accurate. Father Apostoli helps us to know the maternal instruction of Our Lady of Fatima and, following it, to know and `savor', in the words of Pope Benedict XVI, the mystery of divine love in our lives."--- Raymond Cardinal Burke Though the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima took place almost a hundred years ago, Our Lady's call to prayer and penance for the salvation of souls and peace in the world is as relevant now as when first delivered to three Portuguese peasant children in 1917. At the peak of World War I, Our Lady warned us of another possible worldwide conflict, the rise and spread of Communism, and a terrible persecution of the Church, unless people repented of their sins and returned to God. She also requested devotion to her Immaculate Heart and a special consecration of Russia. Much of what Our Lady of Fatima said was revealed soon after her appearances, but the third and final "secret", which was not a message but a prophetic vision seen by the children, was not unveiled by the Vatican until 2000. Pope John Paul II, who read the third secret while recovering from the attempt upon his life in 1981, believed the vision signified the sufferings the Church had endured in the twentieth century. Because of the prophetic nature of her messages, the story of Our Lady of Fatima has been the subject of much controversy and speculation. In this book, Fr. Andrew Apostoli, acclaimed expert on Fatima, carefully analyzes the events and messages at Fatima and clears up lingering questions and doubts about their meaning. He also challenges the reader to hear anew the call of Our Lady to prayer and sacrifice, for the world is ever in need of generous hearts willing to make reparation for those in danger of losing their way to God.

With an introduction by Pope Benedict XVI and including information previously suppressed, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Bertone, definitively reveals and explains one of the most controversial events in twentieth-century Catholicism—the 1917 apparition of the Virgin Mary at Fatima. During World War I, three Portuguese children received a vision in which Mary, the Mother of Jesus, foretold great global turmoil. The first part of their vision—warnings about World War II, communism, and the spread of atheism—were widely publicized, but Vatican officials were hesitant to reveal the vision’s concluding images, thus creating the "secret" of Fatima. Speculation about this secret gripped many Catholics, and the aura of intrigue surrounding Fatima grew when the Church hierarchy barred the last surviving visionary from speaking publicly. In THE LAST SECRET OF FATIMA, Cardinal Bertone, the Vatican equivalent of prime minister and a top advisor to Pope Benedict, breaks the Vatican’s official silence on the last secret. Rather than Armageddon, he claims, the final prophecy envisaged the 1981 assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II. Bertone argues the apparition at Fatima was a call to renewal for the Church, and he was assigned the task of promulgating this message by the Pope.

In 1917 Jesus' Mother appeared to three children on a Portuguese hillside and gave them a message for the Church and the world. She confirmed the message was from Heaven by producing the Miracle of the Sun, a miraculous and terrifying event witnessed by tens of thousands of people, and reported in the secular press of the day. Then everyone moved on with the events of their lives.... Many believe that the Third Secret of Fatima, never fully revealed by the Church, is writing the history of our new millennium. -Back cover.

"We would be mistaken to think that Fatima's prophetic mission is complete." With these words, spoken by Pope Benedict XVI at Fatima on 13th May 2010, this great Marian prophecy came back to the centre of the Church. The third part of the Secret was to be read not only in reference to the martyrs of the twentieth century, but as a vision of the world and of the Church at Her very core. Can that "Portugal" - where the dogma of faith would be preserved - be also every nation and every person who, welcoming Our Lady's requests to consecrate oneself to Her Immaculate Heart and practise the devotion of the Five First Saturdays, would escape material and spiritual ruin? The city situated on the hill, in fact, was half in ruin. The true Faith is beset and fading. But a great hope shines: the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that pure place where God abides.
