Between May 13 and Oct. 13, 1917, three Portuguese children received apparitions of Our Lady near Fatima, a city 110 miles north of Lisbon. Mary asked the children to pray the rosary for world peace, for the end of World War I, for sinners and for the conversion of Russia.
The third visionary, Lucia dos Santos, became a Carmelite nun and died in 2005 at the age of 97. For 100 years, the miraculous apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima have been inspiring the faith of millions.
