A friend of mine recently ask me what my thoughts on Our Lady Of Fatima were, and it got me to
thinking a lot on the subject. I remember when I was first learning about the Catholic Church
and hearing all of the wonderful things that people had witnessed in the Church I heard about
Our Lady of Fatima. When I first heard about Fatima I remember I was instantly amazed at what
the children had witnessed there, and I remember that I believed it right off, I had no doubts
in my mind that it truly did happen and I found the account amazing.
As I read about the three children I was almost jealous in a way that it had happened to them,
and not to me. Could you imagine seeing Our Lady, listening to Her speak? Oh how wonderfully
blessed those kids were, I don't really think they understood at the time what a profound
impact that this would have in so many millions of peoples lives. It never fails to amaze me
the many different ways that God makes His presence known, and the fact that He uses Our Lady
shows how much love He has for His Mother, and it is that love that He has for His Mother, that
makes me love Her so very much.
She is my Spiritual Mother and I have often talked to Her just like I did when my mother was alive. She can understand me in a way that no one else can, and to talk with Her gives me such a peace in my heart. At the beginning of April I am going to be reading yet another book on Our Lady of Fatima, and I am going to be sharing my thoughts on it chapter by chapter on a separate page on my blog. If you would like feel free to get the book and read it along with me. The title is Our Lady Of Fatima by William Thomas Walsh.
