Portugal: remains of Sister Lucia return to Fatima - correction
Comment Email Print
 (correct version - last night's report said this was taking place in January.) The body of Sister Lucia, who witnessed apparitions of Our Lady in 1917, is being moved from the Carmelite convent of Coimbra, where she died, to the Shrine of Fatima on 19 February. Thousands of pilgrims are expected to take part in a procession to the Chapel of the Apparitions, a special Mass, and the ceremonial transfer of the coffin to the basilica. The remains of Sister Lucia, who died at age 97 on February 13 last year, will rest next to those of her two cousins, Blessed Francisco and Blessed Jacinta, who also experienced the visions of Our Lady. Their liturgical feasts are on 20 February. For more information visit the Fatima website: Source: VIS
