The Movie – FATIMA
The movie, Fatima, is a moving and timely reminder of the need for faith in a world facing so many manifestations of evil as it has in past ages. It is a reminder of the special role that Mary plays in our lives in listening to the Gospel of her Son which transforms the world in need of God. As Pope Francis stated, “In Fatima, the Virgin chose the innocent heart and simplicity of little Francisco. Jancinta and Lucia, as guardians of her message. These children received it worthily, so to be recognized as reliable witnesses to the apparitions, and to become models of Christian life.” The movie helps us to appreciate this.
