Item description for Fatima: The Great Sign by Francis Johnston...
Overview The story, the message, and the meaning. Penetrates deeply into the theology of Fatima: the Rosary, daily duty, Eucharistic reparation, consecration and reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Hell and the prophecies, etc. Spells out the repeated papal pronouncements on the crucial relevance of Fatima to the entire world. As Pope Pius XII said, "The time for doubting Fatima is past; it is now time for action." One of our most popular titles.
Publishers Description This book graphically demonstrates that Our Lady of Fatima's message is not just for pious Christians: it is addressed with compelling earnestness to every man, woman and child in the world. To all, she holds out the power, through the practice of her message, to bring down similar miracles of God's grace into their homes, their towns, their countries, and disperse once and for all the threatened nightmare of worldwide Communism and nuclear war - the specter of the entire caravan of mankind sliding into the abyss. "Fatima: The Great Sign" is, however more than a reiteration of the appealing message given by God through His Mother to our sin-laden twenty-first century. In addition to presenting a thoroughly up-to-date account of the Fatima apparitions of 1916-1929 and the subsequent development of the devotions based on Our Lady's message, the book penetrates deeply into the theology of Fatima, especially that concerning devotion and reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (which Fatima inculcates), and draws upon a wealth of supporting material from the most eminent authorities in the Church which hitherto remained largely unknown. In these critical times, no one can afford to ignore the Fatima message. After reading this book, certainly no informed Catholic should have any reason for doing so.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fatima: The Great Sign?
Just the facts.... May 18, 2000
I found this book to be one of the best I have read about the events at Fatima, Portugal from 1916 to 1917. It primarily a presentation of the facts of the events with interpretations of their meanings by the author. What makes this book better than most is that Mr. Johnston does not engage in sensationalism or force parallels with other apparitions and messages that don't necessarily fit. I believe he does a fair job of presenting facts to help the reader see the true message of our Blessed Mother at Fatima, which is a call for repentance and reparation.
