July 13th is the anniversary of the third apparition that occurred in 1917 in Fatima, Portugal. If you are not familiar with the miraculous accounts of Fatima then you should get caught up. http://www.ewtn.com/fatima/index.htm Every time the Blessed Mother appears and the Catholic Church approves it as worthy of faith, it is an amazing and powerful gift from God. But the apparitions of Our Lady that took place in Fatima are exceptional.
Her messages at Fatima came at a time when the world was nearing the end of World War One. Her warnings to the world if we did not repent were serious. The three children who she appeared to weighed in at the young ages of 7,9 & 10 and their lives were changed beyond understanding. Ours will be too if we listen to Our lady. Her words are as important for us today as they were in 1917.
Probably the two most intense moments of the July apparition were 1. The children were shown a vision of hell. And 2. They were told that a second and much more terrible war was going to take place if the world did not repent.
The lessons for our times that we can learn from the apparitions of Fatima are enormous. I encourage you to look into them.
