Storyline

In 1917, three shepherd children living just outside Fatima, Portugal have visions of a lovely lady in a cloud. The anticlerical government wishes to squelch the Church; reports of religious experiences are cause for serious concern. Yet the children stand by their story, and the message of peace and hope the Lady brings. In the last vision, attended by thousands of people, the Lady proves her reality with a spectacular miracle that is seen by everyone present. Based on actual events at Fatima in the summer of 1917. Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@bluemarble.net>

Faith Encouraging
28 June 2003 | by (Philadelphia, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is conducive to one's faith. It serves as a reminder of why one chooses to practice Christianity. It also helps to encourage people to make good decisions in the face of adversity. I give this film a 10.
