Item description for Our Lady of Fatima by William T. Walsh...
Overview Recounts the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three Portuguese children in 1917, and relates how the lives of the three children were affected
"The future of our civilization, our liberties, our very existence may depend upon the acceptance of her commands." --William Thomas Walsh This was the conclusion reached by William Thomas Walsh, distinguished author, historian, and teacher, after he had thorougly investigated the miracle of Fatima. Here is the whole remarkable story of the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three simple children at an obscure Portuguese village in 1917. Her prophecies of World War II and the rise of communism, her plea to humanity to do penance, her promise that world peace and the conversion of Russia would take place if her messages were heeded -- these are some of the dramatic events in this fascinating account of a modern miracle. "Our Lady of Fatima" is a magnificent re-creation of an event whose effects are still reverberating throughout the world -- the appearance in person of the Mother of God with a "peace plan from heaven."

FATIMA - Nov 6, 2007
Here's another great book to read "SISTER LUCIA APOSTLE OF MARY'S IMMACULATE HEART". You can order it at the website "Fatima.org". Remember the frist two messages that were told to the three seers .....From the words and mouth of Jesus and Mary, Russia is going to spread it's errors throughout the entire world and many nations will be annihilated. This is the reason why the Pope must listen to the Virgin Mary's messages, The Holy See must Consecrate Russia to Our Mother 's (Mary) Immaculate heart. If this is not done, there is gong to be a great chastisement from God. For some unknown reason the Pope and his staff feel as though mentioning the word RUSSIA in the Consecretion will offend Russia. We may not be here on earth when the chastisment comes, but this is one of the messages that was given to the three seers to give to the Holy See (Pope). That's why we must Pray the Rosary everyday to change the hearts of those in the Vatican so that the consecration of Russia is completed by the Bishops along with the Pope and lay Persons of the world.
Fascinating book about Fatima Jun 16, 2007
I bought this book because I love reading about Marian apparitions, and I have always believed in what took place at Fatima in 1917. This book goes into full detail about the children and their lives. It describes their daily life, their family, and the events that led up to the apparitions. It really gives you a clear understanding of what all took place during the apparitions, and give you the true story of what the children experienced and suffered during this time. This book also continues to tell us what happened to the children and fanilies after the apparitions, which was very interesting. The descrition of the Oct. 13th apparition is extraordinary! It will WOW you! This is a terrific book about Fatima. If you want the full story of what happened, then get this book!
The absolut rumor Aug 11, 2006
Or as we could say, "Everything you dont need to know about the true Fatima events". Yes, the old rumor is a conquerer of our crowds, without chances to know the real and original reports about Fatima events. Do they really know, ie. that the Portuguese daily press pubished in February 1917 a few reports made by Spiritist groups in Lisbon and Porto ( the major national cities )announced that "in May 13 a great anounce would happen". Well, the catholics believers can not see here a proof for their devotion; by the contrary, the Spiritists don't agree with the official Marian apparitions interpretation and they would not be the promotors of the present Fatima status. So, it's nonsense to think in a conspiracy catholic-spiritist in this preannounce in the portuguese press with 3 months in advance. So, the traditional interpretation has to be revised. The believers will have to know the original reports on the phenomena and not pious third-hand slogans that repeat the well known rumor processs in Psychology. Who said that the Marian apparitions never could be understand by Science is mistaken. Try to read "Heavenly lights" and "Celestial Secrets" by Portuguese historians Dr. Joaquim Fernandes and Fina d'Armada to learn what happened at Fatima 1917.
Beautiful! Apr 13, 2006
Wonderful Catholic historian William Thomas Walsh here relates the amazing and true story of the three peasant children who were witnesses to the apparation of Our Lady of Fatima. They were first visited by the Angel of Peace, Archangel Michael. Later, on the 13th of each month, they were visited by the Blessed Mother of God. On the final visitation, October 13,1917, she performed a miracle, witnessed by thousands. It was "the day the Sun danced".
Reading Walsh's beautiful and appealing manuscript, one is taken right back to Portugal in the days of the Great War. We come to indentify with the peasant children, with their awesome spirituality, and their amazing courage. Careful reading of this wonderful book would seem to compel us all to pick up a rosary, to pray, to console, and to work for peace with all our might. In this, the work is timeless; and we hope it will always be read by seekers after the truth.
Walsh ends this magnificent little book by recording his personal interview with the only surviving witness, Lucia, then a nun. The picture is awesome and riveting, this most Catholic of modern historians, this most gentle and humble of sisters. It is quite beautiful enough to change our fallen world. Read this. And be richly blessed by the experience.
"My Time Will Come" Oct 28, 2005
The facts surrounding Our Lady of Fatimas appearance in Portugal is well documented with further light being shed by quick synopsis's by various reviewers here. If you are interested in what happened at Fatima than this dated book will work temporarily because it is complete but lacks up to the moment developments. However, the account serves it's pupose and is a springboard for further investigtion into the various issues tthat are yet to be resolved. The Third Secret remains to this day a major source of controversy especially since Sister Lucia, the last surviving member has passed away. The conclusions you draw will be based on fact and faith but whether the truth has ever been rightfully or fully revealed is something that will require further reading. The Fatima Crusader is a good source of ongoing information on current develpments as is the work of Father Gruner. If you want a basic account of the circumstances surrounding Our Lady of Fatima this is a book for you. This book is a good place to begin if you are interested but I would recommend others as well like "The Devil's Final Battle." This book is like a quite meditation; it is even more important now than when it was written nearly sixty years ago.
