  The 3 children
by TinKan

The Blessed Virgin Mary it is said appeared six times to three shepherd children near the town of Fatima in Portugal between May 13th and October 13th 1917. Appearing to the children, she told them that she had been sent by God with a message for every man, woman and child living in our century. Coming at a time when civilization was torn apart by war and violence, she promised that Heaven would grant peace to the entire world if her requests for prayer, reparation and consecration were heard and obeyed.
