By Fr. Thomas McGlynn, OP
Vision of Fatima is 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.
Through his work with Sr. Lucia, he came to understand 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.
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.
