In 2017 the Church was particularly blessed with the celebration of the Centenary of the Fatima apparitions. The “White Lady” came to speak — from May to October 1917 on the thirteenth of each month — to three little shepherds, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta. The last two were canonised last 13th May by Pope Francis, while the process for the canonisation of Lucia is still in progress. Of all the private revelations approved by the Church, Fatima is one of particular significance given its theological vision of history. Our Lady not only delivered a supernatural message — a call to penance and prayer for rescuing sinners from eternal perdition in hell — but also foretold what would happen if her call was unheeded. As a celestial appeal, Fatima is not something belonging to the past, but a prophecy for the Church today.
