Vision of Fatima

About this item

Here’s the first-hand account of the Dominican priest and sculptor who worked under the direction of Sr. Lucia — the last surviving witness to the 1917 Marian apparitions in Fatima — as she guided him in perfecting the famed statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

Sr. Lucia insisted Our Lady’s hands be positioned just so, the tunic fall exactly the way she remembered, the star placed on the proper spot on the tunic, and the ball of light around her neck reaching almost to her waist. She would make corrections as Fr. Tom worked, and at times would even take one of the tools and make changes to his model.

Fr. Tom emerged with far more than an exact replica of how Our Lady appeared; he came to understand — and recounts here in these pages — Sr. Lucia’s intimate explanations of what happened in Fatima, the spiritual meanings of the apparitions, whether the Consecration to Russia occurred, why the secrets had to remain secrets for so long, and why Mary chose to appear to three young shepherd children in rural Portugal.

Fr. Tom reminds us that Fatima is a place of miracles, and he points us toward the penitential character of Our Lady’s message, especially the importance of praying the Rosary.

Few books can provide such a penetrating, close encounter with a major Catholic event as Fr. McGlynn’s Vision of Fatima. And only this book leads us into the heart and mind of a Portuguese nun who met face to face with the Mother of God.

One of my fave books on Fatima!
What a great book! I have always wanted to know about the statues made in the image of Our Lady of Fatima, and this book goes into great detail on the artists involved. This is the story of one of the sculptors and his time spent with Lucia going over the details of Our Lady's appearance (so he can execute his artwork). Fascinating little book, chock full of info for anyone truly interested in the Fatima phenomenon. I highly recommend. Couldn't put it down!

A great history to help you truly understand Fatima.
This book gives detailed accounts, both from Lucy and from others who saw the events and the miracles that surrounded Fatima. Detailed history of the events and the country that they occurred in that I didn't think I would find in any other book. Well worth the read.

The details make “Vision of Fatima” feel like you are travelling with the author—I suggest you read it as a sight-seeing trip or pilgrimage, take your time and reflect. Happy travels (in the book)!!

Vision of Fatima
I thoroughly enjoyed this book because not only did I learn more about the secrets, I also learned about miracles I never knew occurred at Fatima. And to hear words from Lucy's mouth were inspirational.
