About this Book:
A moving account of the three shepherd children of Fátima—Lúcia, Francisco, and Jacinta. Their ordinary lives were transformed when Mary appeared to them with a message of peace for the world. Generously responding to Our Lady’s requests for prayer and penance, the children lived the message of Fátima with innocence and heroism.
Unlike other works on this subject, The Shepherds of Fátima tells the story of the children themselves: that faith of their parents, their livelihood as shepherds, and the immediate aftermath of the revelations. Based on Lúcia’s own recollections of the events, this biography does not stop with the story of the apparitions but tell us what happened to the children afterward. It also includes a discussion of the secret of Fátima based on the information from Sister Lúcia before her death.
Features & Benefits:
- Includes an 8-page photo insert.
- Drawn from Lucia's memoirs and the actual accounts of the children.
