|Third apparition of the Angel of Peace
according to Lucia memoirs...
The angel "was holding a
chalice in his left hand, with the host suspended above
it, from which some drops of blood fell into the chalice. Leaving the chalice
suspended in the air, the angel knelt down beside us and made us repeat three times: 'Most holy
Trinity, Father Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious
Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in
reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended...'"
"Then, rising he took the chalice and Host in his
hands. He gave the Sacred Host to me, and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta
and Francisco (who not yet received their First Holy Communion) saying as he did so:
'Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by
ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.'"
Angel of Peace
prepared them to receive the visit of the Blessed Mother that would occur in the following

During this same apparition on May 13, 1917 when the three children asked about a girl who recently
died. Our Blessed Virgin Mother said
"She will be in Purgatory."
This apparition alone proves that both Heaven and

in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary, in order to obtain peace for the world
and the end of the war, because only she can help you."
On July 13, 1917 apparition Our Lady said

and say many times to Jesus, especially whenever you make some:
O Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation
for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary."

|The sixth, last apparition October 13, 1917
called... Miracle of the Sun
On October 13, 1917, it rained all day. The ground was
soaked, drenched and flooded bad. Many came, the people and all the reporters.
The Blessed Mother came and appeared to the three shepherd children.
The sun first came out slow...

The sun was dancing.
The sun started to move down towards all the people on land.
All the people were sacred and started yelling.
Then the sun receded back in the sky.
St. Joseph now appeared in this apparition.
|Lucia's description of the last appearance after
the sun during the
October 13, 1917 last Apparition of Our Lady of the Rosary from her memoirs:
After Our Lady had disappeared into the
immense distance of the firmament, we beheld St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady robed in white
with a blue mantle, beside the sun. St. Joseph and the Child Jesus appeared to bless the world, for
they traced the sign of the cross with their hands. When, a little later, this apparition
disappeared, I saw Our Lord and Our Lady; it seemed to me that it was Our Lady of Dolours. Our
Lord appeared to bless the world in the same manner as St. Joseph had done. This apparition also
vanished, and I saw Our Lady once more, this time resembling Our Lady of Carmel.
When this entire October 13, 1917 apparition was over
the land that was soaked, drenched and flooded was completely dry.
This is all true, very true and again documented by
the people and reporters.
This October 13, 1917 apparition was in the New York Times Paper.
after the appartions in 1917...
