Children's Pilgrimage to Fatima
Last week in Fatima there was a Children's Pilgrimage that led thousands of young people to this famous apparition site and place of prayer. You may remember that on May 13,1917, Our Lady appeared to three children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, while they were caring for their sheep in a place called the Cova da Iria. She told them that she was from heaven and she also asked them to come to this same place for six months on the 13th of the month. Lucia, the oldest, asked if she would go to heaven and Our Lady told her that they all would go to heaven but Francisco must say many rosaries first.
