It had been raining all night, and as the sun rose—hidden in dense racks of cloud—the mud and wetness and chill penetrated the clothes of 70,000 people.
These people had heard that a miracle was to take place that day, and wanted to be there in case something actually happened—scoffers and believers alike.
They did see something: the Miracle of the Sun, which terrified them and shattered all their doubts.
What about Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco? Did they see the sun dance and plunge through the sky?
The three children saw the Holy Family.
In their eyes, the sun remained stationary. The Holy Family stood beside it. Our Lady was clothed in white and blue. St. Joseph held the Child Jesus in his arms; together they blessed the world.
Today we celebrate the Feast of this Holy Family, the model of virtue for our own families. Keep the Holy Family at the heart of your family’s life with this stunning Adoring Holy Family Statue.
