Vision of Fatima:

The perfect book to prepare for the 100th anniversary of the Virgin Mary's apparition in Fatima, Portugal.

Few books can provide such a penetrating, close encounter with a major Catholic event as Fr. McGlynn's Visions of Fatima. In these fascinating pages, Fr. McGlynn tells the remarkable story of his time with Sr. Lucia one of three witnesses of Our Lady's apparition near Fatima as she directed him in his sculpting the famed statue we know as Our Lady of Fatima.

Fr. Tom remained at the Convent of Coimbra in Portugal to sculpt a new statue under Sr. Lucia's direction. She insisted Our Lady's hands be positioned just so, the tunic fall exactly the way she remembered, the star placed on the proper spot on the tunic, and the ball of light around her neck reaching almost to her waist. She would make corrections as he worked, and at times would even take one of the tools and make changes to his model.

This book is Fr. Tom's account of his time with Sr. Lucia, her explanation of the messages of Fatima, and the spiritual meaning of the apparitions. There is no more fascinating and insightful book than this first-hand account of the Dominican priest who worked under the direction of a poor Portuguese nun who saw and spoke to Our Lady.

 

The Shepherds of Fatima:

Their ordinary lives were transformed when Mary appeared to them with a message of peace for the world. Generously responding to Our Lady's requests for prayer and penance, the children lived the message of Fatima with innocence and heroism.

Unlike other works on this subject, The Shepherds of Fatima tells the story of the children themselves: the faith of their parents, their livelihood as shepherds, and the immediate aftermath of the revelations. Based on Lucia's own recollections of the events, this biography does not stop with the story of the apparitions but tells us what happened to the children afterward. It also includes a discussion of the secret of Fatima based on the information from Sister Lucia before her death.
