VISION OF FATIMA

The Catholic world will provide the main audience for this faithfully written account of Father McGlynn's visit to Portugal to obtain a first-hand interview with Lucy, now Sister Dores, witness of the miracle of the vision of the Virgin near the town of Fatima, in 1917. Father McGlynn had been commissioned to make a statue of the Virgin and had his model with him, but under Lucy's direction he began a new one. Lucy was one of the three children to whom the vision appeared, and even after 30 years was able to describe the appearance of the Virgin in detail. There were, in fact, a series of visions and definite statements, the gist of which were the need for penance and sacrifice, the Rosary, devotion to the Immaculate Heart, the punitive character of war, hopes for peace, and the conversion of Russia. This is the third book dealing with the subject and published within approximately a year.
