 Our Description


Translated by M. Colm McCool, OP, and Mary Emmanuel Alves, FSP

Drawing from historical sources and eye-witness accounts, Shepherds of Fátima is a captivating retelling of Mary’s apparitions at Fátima, Portugal, in 1917. Fr. Silva leads readers through the lives of the three little shepherds—Lucia dos Santos and her cousins, Blessed Jacinta Marto and Blessed Francisco Marto—and the events at Fátima with skillful storytelling and expertise. This well-researched account reads like a novel. Also includes photographs.

What Are People Saying about this Title?
From the Preface:
“There is no truth of the Catholic faith that the message [of Fátima] does not contain, implicitly or explicitly. It is truly a synthesis of the Gospel. Silva’s book is indeed a proof of this. This work shows that the author is not only a skillful writer, but also a careful historian…. There are thousands of books about Fátima, but this one will rightly be counted one of the best. I congratulate the author with joy and gratitude.”
— Alberto Cosme Do Amaral, Bishop emeritus of Leiria-Fátima.
