A Life of Devotion to Mary’s Immaculate Heart
"I will take Jacinta and Francisco soon, but you are to stay here some time longer," said the beautiful Lady from Heaven to Lucia. "Jesus wishes to make use of you to make Me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart."
This book recounts the life of Lucia dos Santos, the eldest of the three children of Fatima to whom Our Lady appeared. It covers the major events of her life; her birth in 1907 to Our Lady's visitations in 1917; her entrance in the Dorothean convent to Our Lady's request for the Five First Saturdays in 1925; the spectacular 1929 vision at Tuy to the writing down of the Third Secret in 1944; her entrance into the Carmelites in 1948 to the famous Father Fuentes interview of 1957; her silencing in 1960, when the Third Secret was supposed to have been revealed, to her warnings of a "diabolic disorientation", particularly among members of the upper hierarchy; her continual life of prayer, penance, silence and sacrifice, to her death in 2005; and finally her burial in the Fatima basilica in 2006.
Sister Lucia accomplished her mission to make Our Lady's message known. More important, she lived the life of Devotion to Immaculate Heart of Mary. The life of Sister Lucia, exquisitely written by Mr. Fellows, will not only edify and inspire us, but also encourage us to more faithfully fulfill Our Lady's urgent requests at Fatima.
