Uma Setima vez…

……………………………… Nossa Senhora prometeu a Lúcia que ainda apareceria uma sétima vez. Mas estaria a Virgem Santíssima a falar de uma aparição privada à Lúcia? Ou de uma aparição futura em Fátima e sem Lúcia? …a irmã Lúcia não deixou relatada essa sétima aparição nos seus manuscritos. Ela esqueceu? E se não houve, cabe perguntar, Nossa Senhora aparecerá pela sétima vez a quem?

Quando Nossa Senhora apareceu pela primeira vez à Lúcia, Francisco e Jacinta em 13 de Maio de 1917, eis o que disse a Nossa Mãe do Céu a Lúcia:

Nossa Senhora: “Não tenhais medo. Eu não vos faço mal.”
Lúcia: “De donde é Vossemecê?”
Nossa Senhora: “Sou do céu.”
Lúcia:”E que é que Vossemecê me quer?”
Nossa Senhora: “Vim para vos pedir que venhais aqui seis meses seguidos, no dia 13, a esta mesma hora. Depois vos direi quem sou e o que quero. Depois, voltarei ainda aqui uma sétima vez”.
Ora, as aparições em público de Nossa Senhora aos três pastorinhos de Fátima, se encerraram no dia 13 de outubro de 1917, quando uma multidão que os acompanhava viram o sol bailar. De 13 de maio de 1917 – início das aparições — a 13 de outubro, conta-se seis vezes, exatamente como pediu Nossa Senhora. Mas o que será que Nossa Senhora quis dizer com “voltar aqui uma sétima vez? É certo que Lúcia ainda continuou a ter visões de Nossa Senhora após Jacinta e Francisco terem sido levados por Ela ao céu.

Em particular e antes disso, a Virgem Santíssima ainda apareceu a Lúcia no dia 19 de Agosto*, seis dias depois da 4ª visão na Cova da Iria, para confortá-la e convidá-la a não desistir. … No entanto, foram todos os dias 13, durante seis meses, no mesmo horário e subtende-se, no mesmo local – na Cova da Iria – que Nossa Senhora tinha pedido. Com isso, a aparição de 19 de Agosto, ao meu ver, poderia ser descartada …

Certamente, a frase “ainda voltarei aqui uma sétima vez” expressa um futuro enigmático. As outras aparições que se seguiam seria já com a irmã Lúcia no Convento de Tuy. Nestas aparições, Nossa Senhora vinha muitas vezes acompanhada de Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo como criança no seu colo. Ainda no Convento das irmãs Dorotéias, na década de 40, os seus famosos manuscritos revelam a aparição apenas de Nosso Senhor.

E as aparições continuavam, agora no Carmelo de Coimbra, Nossa Senhora avisara à Lúcia a necessidade de revelar o terceiro Segredo em 1960, pois aí seria mais claro, dizia o relato do Padre Augustín Fuentes em 1957.

Será que o número sete pode ser atribuído a essas tantas aparições privadas à Irmã Lúcia em Espanha e Portugal?

O número sete é identificado pela Igreja como perfeição. Nossa Senhora nunca atribuiria essa perfeição a Ela própria. Mas poderia significar, em razão de suas aparições para se cumprir o que Deus — que é Ser Perfeito – quer realizar no mundo por meio do Triunfo do Coração de Maria. Para mim, parece absurdo aplicar o significado teológico do número sete a quantidade de vezes que Ela apareceu a Lúcia privadamente ou até mesmo publicamente na presença de Francisco, Jacinta, os crentes, descrentes e os curiosos ao redor deles no dia 13 de outubro, mesmo porque Nossa Senhora pedia retorno à Cova da Iria aos três videntes, e não tão somente Lúcia, embora fosse Lúcia que desempenharia um papel fundamental. Logo eles também faziam parte dessas condições ditadas pela Virgem e assim foi, foram seis vezes com os três videntes reunidos no mesmo local, hora e dia. **

Por isso, não creio que Nossa Senhora se referia a outra localidade que não fosse Fátima ou a Cova da Iria quando diz: “voltarei aqui uma sétima vez”. O “aqui” só poderia ser Fátima, só poderia ser a Cova da Iria, e não Garabandal, por exemplo. Ou será que não? Instigante!

*Lúcia revela, no seu manuscrito, não lembrar ao certo a data, e menciona a data de 15 de agosto, porém, segundo a nota de rodapé do livro O segredo de Fátima, lúcia se enganou e a data da aparição teria sido realmente no dia 19.

** O Prof. Orlando Fedeli analisa como cada vidente exerce diferentes méritos e dons hierarquicamente constituidos. Tendo Lúcia como vidente principal na história, pode-se concluir que ela possuia os dons completos: ver, ouvir e conversar com a Virgem Santissíma, enquanto Francisco só via, não ouvia e não conversava e Jacinta via e ouvia, mas também não conversava.

In 1917 in Cova da Iria , Fatima , Portugal, three shepherd children, ten years old Lúcia Santos and her cousins, Jacinta 7 and brother Francisco Marto near 9.

They claimed that they saw a lady in the Cova da Iria, (a depression on a rural-mountain field just over 1 km from their home) .

A lady; beautiful… – later described as “brighter than the sun.”

(Why Fatima? A town that recalls the daughter of Mohammed?...)

…………………………………….

<< with writing from …Miguel B. Duarte and Pinharanda Gomes.>>

«and “The Moors Fatimidas and the Apparitions of Fatima”: – Moisés Espírito Santo, – presents a cautious version of events

not only very interesting but,  much more likely.

Unlike what is commonly believed, were not Arabs who invaded the Iberian Peninsula in 711,

but the Berbers of Morocco;… Through  -Gibraltar “ Jebel el Tarik “the Mountain of Tarik,”

– tribes Macemuda and Zenaga, led by a berber, Tariq.

The Macemudas said to be descended of Fatima, daughter of Muhammad, and his doctrine was a primitive chiismo, considered heretical by orthodox or Sunni Islam, and had many points in common with Gnosticism, Zoroastrianism and Christian mysticism. ..

Aliibn Talibwas the first Imam, eleven imams descended from him. This descent who could be…implied;

the transmission of a secret  about the key to the interpretation of the  secret  and  allegorical meaning  of the Koran.

The last Imam, Muhammad al-Muntazar (Mohamed, the expected) was born miraculously and disappeared five years later;

but lives still today, in a supra-sensible world, awaiting the arriva l  of the “Messianictime”,

where, as messiah, “will fight injustice and moral decay, after which will come the Lord Jesus, son of Mary, for the Final Judgment.”

As- Moçomodia, a village near Fatima, which derives from Macemuda; and many more…

The Macemuda Zenaga occupied the Serra de Aire, where, left many toponymic traces of their presence .

Fatima parish, who “took the name from Fatima,  of the vali of Alcacer do Sal”; protagonist

of a beautiful legend of the days of the foundation of Portugal;

–  Fazarga a hill by the Cova da Iria, which comes from az-Zagra, “the Resplendent”,

the appellation of the daughter of the prophet; –(and a title of the Lady of Fatima); – Aljustrel, which will come from the Hebrew, or the Punic,

ahl ses tr’eli, people claiming the return of Ali, or Elias; Magdalene, from Arabic i’lana mahdi, messiah announcer…

… – Iria (of Hyriii or ryu, (reads eriía), a degree of Sufism, which means to : – Appear, “show up, show up”

because the “Sufi initiated ; – begins to see things”…

… Thus, it is very likely that in the area that is now the Cova da Iria, – Sufis of tribes or Macemuda Zenaga…

there are various views that have been taken by the Hidden “Imam” or Fatima.

“Centuries later, visions… to three children who had finished praying the Rosary”. > “subha” (According to the 17th-century Shia cleric ʻAllāmah Muhammad Baqir Majlisi, after the 625CE Battle of Uḥud, Fāṭimah (the daughter of Muhammad) would visit the Martyrs’ graveyard, and then made a misbaḥah of Ḥamzah ibn ʻAbd al-Muṭṭalib’s grave-soil. After that, people started making and using misbaḥahs.)…

… similar to the practice that the Sufis use to achieve ecstasy, whose reports contain the same gnosis of macemudas Fatimids

“appearance Occult, figure of male-female 15 light years, signs in the sun, “says Moisés Espírito Santo .

Hence, today , some Moroccans are convinced that the Portuguese worship, Leila Fatemah (Lady Fatima). ”

And according to history:”Oxalá!…”<< Moor …Mauritania…maerian…morass…- > Mere = sea -> unmixed > pure>>mari = >> …Moors were Muslim people inhabiting NW Africa that invaded Spain in the 8th century C.E. : “In 711 CE, a Moorish Umayyad army from North Africa invaded Visigothic Christian Hispania. Under their leader Tariq ibn-Ziyad, and brought most of the Iberian Peninsula under Islamic rule in an eight-year campaign. Al-ʾAndalūs (Arabic الإندلس: Land of the Vandals) is the Arabic name given by its conquerors. From the 8th to the 15th centuries, parts of the Iberian Peninsula were ruled by the Moors . “The Idrisids (Arabic : الأدارسة) were a Zaydi -Shia Arab dynasty of Morocco, ruling from 788 to 985 AD … The founder of the dynasty was Idris ibn Abdallah … back to Ali ibn Abi Talib and his wife Fatimah, daughter of the Prophet Muhammad. As a sharif Shiite he was persecuted by the Abbasids and fled to the Maghreb in 786 … The new kingdom of Idris I represented the second autonomous Islamic state in Morocco, and the first in Iberia.”

The Fatimite or Fatimid or the al-Fātimiyyūn Dynasty states: “Political and religious dynasty that dominated an empire in North Africa … from ad 909 to 1171 … It took its name from Fāṭimah, the daughter of the Prophet Muḥammad, from whom the Fāṭimids claimed descent.”

Thus from the proven Islamic influence in the region, specially Shi’ah who love and honor Hadrat Fatima (PBUH) so very much, it is quite logical to conclude that the name of Hadrat Fatima (PBUH) had big influence in the people of Portugal. But in regard to the Moorish princess story, there are important points to consider, as it is only based on a “legend”: – A  unverifiable story handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted as historical.

A second point which deserves attention the American Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church, Fulton John Sheen, have said that the Moorish princess who was named Fatima after the daughter of the Prophet of Islam, married a Catholic young man, and her name was changed to a Catholic name, but her husband loving her so much changed the name of his town to her Muslim name! … and; legends have not been safe from human distortions!!!… Some say that her baptismal name was Oureana. (“lourinha” because she had blond hair; from Ouro= Gold ) Legend also the reason of the name of the upper town Ourém derives from Oureana >- Ourém .

Now let us see the title by which Christians claim that the lady of the so-called visions, had introduced herself: “Lady of Rosary”, i.e. “Lady of Prayer Beads”.

“There are differing views on the history of the rosary. According to tradition, the rosary was given to Saint Dominic in an apparition by the Blessed Virgin Mary in the year 1214 in the church of Prouille [in France]. This Marian apparition received the title of Our Lady of the Rosary.” Started with the so called Monastery of Notre-Dame-de-Prouille apparition “1208”.

Firstly, the prayer beads, or as the Catholics have called it: the rosary, which is being used , is a fairly new concept, and the prayers recited and counted by the rosary have also been developing by various  figures ever since  was it given  in a vision. It is also noteworthy to mention that many such new concepts originated in or around the 13th century C.E.  in the period in which the Christians were being exposed to the Islamic teachings and culture. It is also noteworthy to see that exposure to Islamic sciences and culture was the main factor which paved the way for the Renaissance in Europe…

– Secondly, the title “Lady of Rosary”   it is also based on another so-called apparition in a small French village. Lourdes. …A: -Lady in white, with a golden rosary …

To a simple, 14-year old peasant girl, reported; a woman in white spoke to her, Que soy L’Immaculada Concepciou, I am the Immaculate Conception  Rosary Basilica.

Lourdes

<<… Rivers of wretched pilgrims flock to the Cave in demand of salvation, and are almost nothing more but a representation of easy money to all those who feel no guilt for exploiting their pain.

… Booklets directly related to Lourdes, published in Portugal between 1894 and 1932. Intend to show an evolution in Catholic thinking similar to that of right-wing politics, as well of the liberal bourgeoisie and anticlerical intellectuals : … crowds were seen mainly as an excuse to discuss its ‘healing power’ in a science-versus-religion debate ; after Fátima, right-wing Catholics now showing a new confidence in the power of Catholic crowds, political significance …>>

– Tasbih. – The word Tasbih itself in Arabic means, praising, glorifying and worshiping God. ( Pure from anything).

The Tasbih of Fatima …is a special set of prayers to Praise to the One and Only Almighty.

This Tasbih has been named after Fatima, because her father, The Prophet Mohammad  told her that the Divine Formula of the Tasbih is worth more than almost everything in the world, he told her to recite at the end of every prayer the Great Exaltation, Allah-o-Akbar 34 times, the Statement of Absolute Gratitude, Al-Hamd-o-lellah 33 times and the Invocation of Divine Glory, SobhaanAllah 33 times, totaling 100.

This collective prayer is called the Tasbih of Fatima. – The word Tasbih has been used for prayer beads ever since. OVER 1400 YEARS AGO

-THE TASBIH OF FATIMA ZAHRA IS THE VERY FIRST SET OF PRAYER BEADS IN HISTORY,  (Hadrah is “Presence”)-THE LADY OF TASBIH  FOR OVER FOURTEEN CENTURIES.

In Fatima Portugal The Lady “introduced herself as the (Senhora do Rosario) Lady of the Rosary; ( in Portuguese) Clearly;- The lady of the Prayer Beads…

– FATIMA ZAHRA- زهراء ‎, pronounced Zahra’, meaning bright, shining, brilliant…

. Lúcia described seeing a woman (in her own words – mais brilhante que o sol …)   “brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal ball filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the burning rays of the sun.”

Fāṭimah  Az-Zahra (the brilliant)
Many say: -Without Fatima Zahra  is no Islam, because Fatima is the model.. She is the most important lady on this universe and shall always be. Helping others and doing charity is to do as Fatima would have done. We should learn from her honesty, modesty and loyalty.

…“ Lúcia Santos… became a nun and as “Sister María das Dores” ( (1934)Mary of the Sorrows:

– and later (1948 ) changes to “Sister María Lúcia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart”,

Was told, that she recounted visits from “ angel Gabriel”  in 1916… Jacinta died in 1919 and Francisco in 1920 from the flu,

and were later beatified by Pope . – Lucia “lived in the convent” until 2005.

Será que o número sete pode ser atribuído a essas tantas aparições privadas à Irmã Lúcia em Espanha e Portugal?

O número sete é identificado pela Igreja como perfeição. Nossa Senhora nunca atribuiria essa perfeição a Ela própria. Mas poderia significar, em razão de suas aparições para se cumprir o que Deus — que é Ser Perfeito – quer realizar no mundo por meio do Triunfo do Coração de Maria. Para mim, parece absurdo aplicar o significado teológico do número sete a quantidade de vezes que Ela apareceu a Lúcia privadamente ou até mesmo publicamente na presença de Francisco, Jacinta, os crentes, descrentes e os curiosos ao redor deles no dia 13 de outubro, mesmo porque Nossa Senhora pedia retorno à Cova da Iria aos três videntes, e não tão somente Lúcia, embora fosse Lúcia que desempenharia um papel fundamental. Logo eles também faziam parte dessas condições ditadas pela Virgem e assim foi, foram seis vezes com os três videntes reunidos no mesmo local, hora e dia. **

Por isso, não creio que Nossa Senhora se referia a outra localidade que não fosse Fátima ou a Cova da Iria quando diz: “voltarei aqui uma sétima vez”. O “aqui” só poderia ser Fátima, só poderia ser a Cova da Iria, e não Garabandal, por exemplo. Ou será que não? Instigante!

*Lúcia revela, no seu manuscrito, não lembrar ao certo a data, e menciona a data de 15 de agosto, porém, segundo a nota de rodapé do livro O segredo de Fátima, lúcia se enganou e a data da aparição teria sido realmente no dia 19.

** O Prof. Orlando Fedeli analisa como cada vidente exerce diferentes méritos e dons hierarquicamente constituidos. Tendo Lúcia como vidente principal na história, pode-se concluir que ela possuia os dons completos: ver, ouvir e conversar com a Virgem Santissíma, enquanto Francisco só via, não ouvia e não conversava e Jacinta via e ouvia, mas também não conversava.

Why Fatima? A town that recalls the daughter of Mohammed?...

…………………………………….

<< with writing from …Miguel B. Duarte and Pinharanda Gomes.>>

«In “The Moors Fatimidas and the Apparitions of Fatima”: – Moisés Espírito Santo, – presents a cautious version of events

not only very interesting but,  much more likely.

Unlike what is commonly believed, were not Arabs who invaded the Iberian Peninsula in 711,

but the Berbers of Morocco;… Through  -Gibraltar “ Jebel el Tarik “the Mountain of Tarik,”

– tribes Macemuda and Zenaga, led by a berber, Tariq.

The Macemudas said to be descended of Fatima, daughter of Muhammad, and his doctrine was a primitive chiismo,

considered heretical by orthodox or Sunni Islam, and had many points in common with Gnosticism, Zoroastrianism and Christian mysticism. ..

Aliibn Talibwas the first Imam, eleven imams descended from him. This descent who could be…implied;

the transmission of a secret  about the key to the interpretation of the  secret  and  allegorical meaning  of the Koran.

The last Imam, Muhammad al-Muntazar (Mohamed, the expected) was born miraculously and disappeared five years later;

but lives still today, in a supra-sensible world, awaiting the arriva l  of the “Messianictime”,

where, as messiah, will fight injustice and moral decay, after which will come the Lord Jesus, son of Mary, for the Final Judgment.

The Macemuda Zenaga occupied the Serra de Aire, where, left many toponymic traces of their presence .

As- Moçomodia, a village near Fatima, which derives from Macemuda; and many more…

Fatima parish, who “took the name from Fatima,  of the vali of Alcacer do Sal”; – protagonist

of a beautiful legend of the days of the foundation of Portugal; –  Fazarga a hill by the Cova da Iria, which comes from az-Zagra, “the Resplendent”,

the daughter of the prophet; –(a title of the Lady of Fatima); – Aljustrel, which will come from the Hebrew, or the Punic,

ahl ses tr’eli, people claiming the return of Ali, or Elias; Magdalene, from Arabic i’lana mahdi, messiah announcer;

… – Iria (of Hyriii or ryu, (reads eriía), a degree of Sufism, which means appear, “show up, show up,

because the Sufi initiated “begins to see things”…

… Thus, it is very likely that in the area that is now the Cova da Iria, – Sufis of tribes or Macemuda Zenaga…

there are various views that have been taken by the Hidden “Imam” or Fatima.

“Centuries later, visions… to three children who had finished praying the Rosary”.

similar to the practice that the Sufis use to achieve ecstasy, whose reports contain the same gnosis of macemudas Fatimids

“appearance Occult, figure of male-female 15 light years, signs in the sun, “says Moisés Espírito Santo .

Hence, today , some Moroccans are convinced that the Portuguese worship, Leila Fatemah (Lady Fatima). ”

And according to history:”Oxalá!…”<< Moor …Mauritania…maerian…morass…- > Mere = sea -> unmixed > pure>>mari = >> …Moors were Muslim people inhabiting NW Africa that invaded Spain in the 8th century C.E. : “In 711 CE, a Moorish Umayyad army from North Africa invaded Visigothic Christian Hispania. Under their leader Tariq ibn-Ziyad, and brought most of the Iberian Peninsula under Islamic rule in an eight-year campaign. Al-ʾAndalūs (Arabic الإندلس: Land of the Vandals) is the Arabic name given by its conquerors. From the 8th to the 15th centuries, parts of the Iberian Peninsula were ruled by the Moors . “The Idrisids (Arabic : الأدارسة) were a Zaydi -Shia Arab dynasty of Morocco, ruling from 788 to 985 AD … The founder of the dynasty was Idris ibn Abdallah … back to Ali ibn Abi Talib and his wife Fatimah, daughter of the Prophet Muhammad. As a sharif Shiite he was persecuted by the Abbasids and fled to the Maghreb in 786 … The new kingdom of Idris I represented the second autonomous Islamic state in Morocco, and the first in Iberia.”

The Fatimite or Fatimid or the al-Fātimiyyūn Dynasty states: “Political and religious dynasty that dominated an empire in North Africa … from ad 909 to 1171 … It took its name from Fāṭimah, the daughter of the Prophet Muḥammad, from whom the Fāṭimids claimed descent.”

Thus from the proven Islamic influence in the region, specially Shi’ah who love and honor Hadrat Fatima (PBUH) so very much, it is quite logical to conclude that the name of Hadrat Fatima (PBUH) had big influence in the people of Portugal. But in regard to the Moorish princess story, there are important points to consider, as it is only based on a “legend”: – A  unverifiable story handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted as historical.

A second point which deserves attention the American Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church, Fulton John Sheen, have said that the Moorish princess who was named Fatima after the daughter of the Prophet of Islam, married a Catholic young man, and her name was changed to a Catholic name, but her husband loving her so much changed the name of his town to her Muslim name! … and; legends have not been safe from human distortions!!!… Some say that her baptismal name was Oureana. (“lourinha” because she had blond hair; from Ouro= Gold ) Legend also the reason of the name of the upper town Ourém derives from Oureana >- Ourém .

Now let us see the title by which Christians claim that the lady of the so-called visions, had introduced herself: “Lady of Rosary”, i.e. “Lady of Prayer Beads”.

“There are differing views on the history of the rosary. According to tradition, the rosary was given to Saint Dominic in an apparition by the Blessed Virgin Mary in the year 1214 in the church of Prouille [in France]. This Marian apparition received the title of Our Lady of the Rosary.” Started with the so called Monastery of Notre-Dame-de-Prouille apparition “1208”.

Firstly, the prayer beads, or as the Catholics have called it: the rosary, which is being used , is a fairly new concept, and the prayers recited and counted by the rosary have also been developing by various  figures ever since  was it given  in a vision. It is also noteworthy to mention that many such new concepts originated in or around the 13th century C.E.  in the period in which the Christians were being exposed to the Islamic teachings and culture. It is also noteworthy to see that exposure to Islamic sciences and culture was the main factor which paved the way for the Renaissance in Europe…

– Secondly, the title “Lady of Rosary”   it is also based on another so-called apparition in a small French village. Lourdes. …A: -Lady in white, with a golden rosary …

To a simple, 14-year old peasant girl, reported; a woman in white spoke to her, Que soy L’Immaculada Concepciou, I am the Immaculate Conception  Rosary Basilica. Booklets directly related to Lourdes, published in Portugal between 1894 and 1932. Intend to show an evolution in Catholic thinking similar to that of right-wing politics, as well of the liberal bourgeoisie and anticlerical intellectuals : … crowds were seen mainly as an excuse to discuss its ‘healing power’ in a science-versus-religion debate ; after Fátima, right-wing Catholics now showing a new confidence in the power of Catholic crowds, political significance …>>

– Tasbih. – The word Tasbih itself in Arabic means, praising, glorifying and worshiping God. ( Pure from anything).

The Tasbih of Fatima …is a special set of prayers to Praise to the One and Only Almighty.

This Tasbih has been named after Fatima, because her father, The Prophet Mohammad  told her that the Divine Formula of the Tasbih is worth more than almost everything in the world, he told her to recite at the end of every prayer the Great Exaltation, Allah-o-Akbar 34 times, the Statement of Absolute Gratitude, Al-Hamd-o-lellah 33 times and the Invocation of Divine Glory, SobhaanAllah 33 times, totaling 100.

This collective prayer is called the Tasbih of Fatima. – The word Tasbih has been used for prayer beads ever since. OVER 1400 YEARS AGO

-THE TASBIH OF FATIMA ZAHRA IS THE VERY FIRST SET OF PRAYER BEADS IN HISTORY,  (Hadrah is “Presence”)-THE LADY OF TASBIH  FOR OVER FOURTEEN CENTURIES.

In Fatima Portugal The Lady “introduced herself as the (Senhora do Rosario) Lady of the Rosary; ( in Portuguese) Clearly;- The lady of the Prayer Beads…

– FATIMA ZAHRA- زهراء ‎, pronounced Zahra’, meaning bright, shining, brilliant…

. Lúcia described seeing a woman (in her own words – mais brilhante que o sol …)   “brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal ball filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the burning rays of the sun.”

Fāṭimah  Az-Zahra (the brilliant)
Many say: -Without Fatima Zahra  is no Islam, because Fatima is the model.. She is the most important lady on this universe and shall always be. Helping others and doing charity is to do as Fatima would have done. We should learn from her honesty, modesty and loyalty.

…“ Lúcia Santos… became a nun and as “Sister María das Dores” ( (1934)Mary of the Sorrows:

– and later (1948 ) changes to “Sister María Lúcia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart”,

Was told, that she recounted visits from “ angel Gabriel”  in 1916… Jacinta died in 1919 and Francisco in 1920 from the flu,

and were later beatified by Pope . – Lucia “lived in the convent” until 2005.

With the “secret”…And the construction of the sanctuary,

local development elevated Fatima to the status of city on 12 July 1997.>>

…- my mother recalled; from when, (she) about 5/6 years old:

– Lúcia; (seven years older ) ;sometimes visited her home,

. mostly; to “gather” with her elder Sisters; – Maria and Alzira.

– As my grandfather Joaquim used to try to persuade Lucia to tell “The secret”:

(In Lucia’s words: – Sorry Mr. Joaquim I can only tell it to your mother!

– (My great-grandmother, could not read or wright, – was “ mute “. )

GREAT-GRANDMOTHER.

And yes I do believe what mother told me :

– Of before Lucia was “brainwashed”

and by the “Vatican tutors abducted”
a bit sad summarizing
as simply commenting :

– Yes ; what the priests don’t tell you : – As amatory as untimely innocent …

Lucia was a (super hipper 10 years old) “nice little  Hot rod” in the town, and surrounds .

“Everyone – boys and girls- wanted to be with Lucia”

– Yes I heard!…

…( Lúcia said, that her father used to say to his mother

“You and I are one. And  my mother used to say that matrimony was the tree of life”…

Robert J. Fox )

– Lúcia remembered her father telling fairy tales and singing folk songs: -“ He did not like “Father Ferreira”(the priest-“P.e Boicinha”.) , and went to church in a nearby town.” …

Lúcia was a fabulous storyteller with a “gift for narration.” She had a talent for composing original songs, with catchy folk-style tunes on sacred, and secular lyrics.

– Lúcia’s mother : – Maria Rosa had a taste for religious literature and storytelling.. During the winter ; catechism lessons took place after supper and around the fire. According to her , Lúcia repeated everything that she heard “like a parrot.”
