Our Lady Came To Fatima
Ruth Fox Hume
Who would have thought that the Blessed Mother would choose to come to Fatima, that remote farming village on a rocky slope in Portugal?
No one was more surprised than Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco, the little shepherds to whom she appeared in 1917. That she should entrust the children with messages for the world was beyond their imagination.
In this twenty-seventh volume of the acclaimed Vision Books series for youth, readers will be enthralled by the story of the village and its people, of the scornful neighbors and the puzzled parents. Above all, it is the warmly human story of the three little ones who insisted that Our Lady had indeed come to Fatima. One of the great spiritual movements of our time grew out of the faith of these children.
The Fatima story is one of the momentous events in a war-ridden world, of the serious warnings and predictions of the heavenly Queen. At the same time, it is the joyous story of a loving Mother's visits to her delighted children - and perhaps this, after all, is the real wonder of Fatima.
Ruth Fox Hume was a graduate of Catholic schools, a teacher and a mother. She is also the author of Great Men of Medicine and Milestones of Medicine.
A great book to add to your child's book shelf
Our Lady Came to Fatima written by Ruth Fox Hume, illustrated by Christpher J. Pelicano, published by Ignatius Press, part of the Vision Book Series, 165 pages. I would like to start off by saying that we love the Vision Book Series. I think that every Catholic child should have at least a few of this series on their book shelf. "Our Lady Came to Fatima" was a wonderful book, we read this book for the first time during our out loud reading time and was able to read a chapter in anywhere from 20 minutes to a half of an hour. I would say that this book has a reading level of fourth grade and up. My teenager has re-read this book and enjoyed it just as much now as she did the first time w Full Review...
