Did you know . . .
On the day of the great MIRACLE OF THE SUN at Fatima, October 13, 1917, some 70,000 people gathered: men and women from all walks and stations in life; believers and nonbelievers stood side by side. At this time, the Queen of Heaven displayed her awesome power. She directed her hands streaming with light towards the sun, and the sun was darkened.
Then the sun began to rotate at a furious speed wrenching itself from its axis. Colors spun off the surface – red, blue, green, lighting the earth beneath. It began to zigzag, to dance; it stopped, and then plunged madly toward the crowd like a giant fireball, obliterating all else from view! People screamed for God’s mercy, convinced that they were witnessing the last days.
Later the sun returned to its place, and there was great rejoicing in this great sign, confirming the message that had been given. But even after this miracle, the world as a whole did not believe.
EMMET CAHILL, a young Irish tenor with Celtic Thunder (currently on tour in the U.S.), will sing at our 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, October 2. Emmet’s experience includes serving as cantor, soloist, and member of the choir at Christ the King Cathedral parish in Mullingar, Ireland.
Pray to St. Padre Pio
for his intercession
