This, i.e., the Centennial, was why Pope Francis was in Fatima to canonize the two younger cousins who died in 1918. Click image to access “The New York Times” original.


100-years ago today!

Our Lady of Fatima‘ has figured prominently in World history and culture since then — especially in the last 30-years, with all three of the popes during that period being avid fans.

Today’s canonization was timed to coincide with the anniversary. Neat.

The reason that only two, of the three, were canonized was because Lúcia Santos, the oldest, did not die until 2005 — aged 97. The canonization process can’t start until you die! Hence the delay. Her canonization has been fast-tracked — as was the case for Pope John Paul II, a huge Fatima fan. She will be canonized in a ‘few’ years.
