A very large crowd converged to Fatima in the morning of September 13, 1917, and the children arrived there at noon for the monthly apparition of the Virgin Mary. “Continue to pray the rosary to obtain the end of the war,” she asked Lucy.
The apparition focused on a preview of miracles that would occur on October 13, 1917, the last apparition of Fatima.
Then Lucia petitioned for cures. The Blessed Mother mentioned that some cures would happen and stressed that a great miracle would occur in the apparition of October. It would be the Miracle of the Sun.
