Today is the 98th anniversary of the amazing Miracle of the Sun at Fatima.
While the children saw various apparitions of Jesus, Mary and St Joseph, the crowd of at least 70,000, saw sun gyrate in the sky for about ten minutes, sending out shafts of multi-coloured light, before seeming to plunge towards the earth.
Many in the crowd thought it was the end of the world, but the sun then resumed its normal appearance and place in the heavens.
Other people witnessed the solar miracle from a distance thus ruling out the possibility of any type of collective hallucination.
When the sun resumed its normal place in the sky, “everyone noticed that their clothes and the entire Cova da Iria were completely dry.” (Francis Johnston, Fatima the Great Sign, p. 52).
