The Fatima Seers

Lucia dos Santos, Francisco & Jacinta Marto

Three children whose fiat as God's messengers would forever change the face of this earth

    Today we bring you the 30th selections out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose the three Fatima visionaries Francisco Marto, Jacinta Marto and Lucia dos Santos whom the Mother of God chose to appear to in 1917 between May 13th and October 13th. The apparitions proved worthy of belief and have been approved by Holy Mother Church and therefore make the three eligible for this list. The two Marto children died a few years after Our Lady appeared but Lucia is still alive today as a Carmelite cloistered nun in Coimbra, Portugal.

30.    The Fatima Seers: Jacinta and Francisco Marto, and Lucia dos Santos

"Knock and it shall be opened to you."

    In this weekend's editorial, we reveal the astounding numbers generated thus far by interest in the DAILY CATHOLIC going over four million visits for this year already. But it takes funds to continue this pace and cover the enormous costs of storing and maintaining all the files. For the commentary, "...the laborer deserves his wages." , click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT

The evil trend of Halloween needs to be squashed like an old pumpkin!

   In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto takes a break from the story she was going to bring us on Kathy's Story by delaying that a week to exhort the reader to be careful how you treat the day of trick or treat activities. Candy is dandy, but the face of evil can be masked behind the hidden agenda of satan preying on unsuspecting victims who don't see the path that leads to hell strewn with sweets and bone-tingling chills.
