Tomorrow is the 93rd anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima to the children Lucia, Jacinto and Francisco. I have always thought that it takes an extremely hardened heart to learn of the events of Fatima and still refuse to follow Jesus Christ. Whether it was the Virgin of Fatima or her Divine Son who chose the three visionaries, I am not sure. Regardless, what would compel three uneducated peasant children to concoct such a tale knowing full it well it could cost them and their families their lives? The simplicity and ignorance of the children illuminates how far God's ways are above ours. There is nothing secretive about the true message of Fatima: Repent and Pray, especially for the sake of those who do not yet believe.
