Lucia Dos Santos 10, and cousins Francisco & Jacinta Marto 9, and 7.
Our Lady appeared to them on the 13th day of each month from May 13 - October 13, 1917, at Fatima, Portugal

They asked Our Lady for a sign so that the people would believe that She really came.
October 13, 1917, the last public apparition
over 70,000 gathered.

Our Lady gave them three secrets. The Government authorities threatened to boil them in oil, but they still wouldn't tell the secrets.

Our Lady told them She will come to get Jacinta and Francisco soon, but Lucia will have to remain a little longer. Jacinta & Francisco died alone in the hospital from the Spanish Flu in 1919. Sr. Lucia of Jesus became a nun and lived until Feb 13, 2005
What did Our Lady say at Fatima?
Pray the rosary daily with the family.
Confess your sins.
Pray for the conversion of Russia: the children thought Russia was a bad woman. They were uneducated at that time.

"If man does not turn back to God, another war will come, an instrument of destruction hitherto unknown to man will be created,(atomic bomb), and Russia will spread its errors throughout the world(communism)."
The Bolshevik revolution began in Russia on October 17, 1917, four days after the last public apparition when over 70,000 witnessed the Spinning of the Sun. The crowd had been drenched from a downpouring rain, then the sun appeared as a spinning disk in the sky. After, they were all dry and the mud was gone.

After, Our Lady appeared to the three children, and they also saw St. Joseph holding the Baby Jesus. Our Lady, holding the rosary in one hand, and the scapular in the other, said, "Pray the rosary daily and wear my scapular. Consecrate yourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through my Immaculate Heart. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will Triumph." She asked that the Holy Father consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. "I am the Queen of Peace."

"The family that prays together stays together." - Fr. Patrick Peyton
