Filmed in Spain in 1951, this classic program is the dramatic reenactment of the three shepherd children of Fatima, Portugal, who received apparitions of Our Lady on the 13th of each month between May 13, 1917, and October 13, 1917. Jacinta and Francisco Marto, and Lucia dos Santos remained faithful even though their families, the village priest and the townspeople all initially rejected their report. On that final day in October, an estimated 70,000 people witnessed miracles and Mary’s message to the world.
This drama features the beautiful Spanish actress Inez Orsini as Lucia, as well as other well-cast actors and actresses.
The program concludes with a short reflection by Father Peyton who briefly describes his life-threatening illness and the miraculous cure that inspired his priesthood and our ministry.
Presented by Family Theater Productions and dedicated to the Catholic Daughters of America and their patroness, Mary, the Mother of God.
