Pope Francis remembers centenary of Fatima

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday recalled this year marks the centenary of the apparitions at Fatima.

Speaking to German pilgrims during his General Audience, the Holy Father said “let us entrust ourselves to Mary, Mother of hope, who invites us to turn our gaze towards salvation, towards a new world and a new humanity. God bless you all.”

On May 13, 1917, Lúcia Santos and her cousins Bl. Jacinta and Bl. Francisco Marto began seeing apparitions of Our Lady, which continued  for months.

Last December, the Vatican confirmed Pope Francis will go on pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima from 12-13 May of this year.
