"The future of our civilization, our liberties, our very existence may depend upon the acceptance of her commands." – William Thomas Walsh
This was the conclusion reached by William Thomas Walsh, distinguished author, historian, and teacher, after he had thoroughly investigated the miracle of Fatima. Here is the whole remarkable story of the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three simple children at an obscure Portuguese village in 1917. Her prophecies of World War II and the rise of communism, her plea to humanity to do penance, her promise that world peace and the conversion of Russia would take place if her messages were heeded – these are some of the dramatic events in this fascinating account of a modern miracle.
Our Lady of Fatima is a magnificent re-creation of an event whose effects are still reverberating throughout the world – the appearance in person of the Mother of God with a "peace plan from heaven."
