July 13, 2021 — 104th anniversary of the 3rd apparition of Our Lady of Fatima to the three shepherd children in 1917. The apparitions were six in all: on May 13, June 13, July 13, August 19 (because the children were in prison on the 13th in order to prevent them from going to the place of the apparitions), September 13, and October 13, when the “miracle of the sun” occurred before 70,000 people). These are the words written later by Sister Lucy, who died in 2005:
“Terrified and as if to plead for succor [after seeing a vision of hell], we looked up at Our Lady, who said to us kindly but so sadly:
“‘You have seen Hell, where poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.
