The feast day of Our Lady of Fatima is on May 13th. This day commemorates the apparitions of the Virgin Mary to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917.
The Virgin Mary appeared to Lucia dos Santos and her two cousins, Francisco and Jacinta Marto, on six different occasions between May 13th and October 13th, 1917. Mary revealed to them a message of repentance, prayer, and devotion to her Immaculate Heart. She also showed them a vision of hell and a way to avoid it through prayer and sacrifice.
The message of Our Lady of Fatima has become one of the most important and popular apparitions in the Catholic Church. The shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal is visited by millions of pilgrims every year. On her feast day, the Church honors the Virgin Mary under this title and encourages the faithful to follow her message of prayer, penance, and devotion.
