OUR LADY OF FATIMA AND THE WOMAN CLOTHED WITH THE SUN OF REVELATION 12

THE WOMAN OF REVELATION 12
A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman* clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.-Revelation 12
A WOMAN BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN - FATIMA PORTUGAL 1917
Lúcia Dos Santos described seeing a woman "brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal ball filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the burning rays of the sun".
THE MIRACLE OF THE SUN
Thousands of people flocked to Fátima in the ensuing months, drawn by reports of visions and miracles.
On August 13, the provincial administrator who was an anticlerical Freemason, on the pretext that the crowds were politically disruptive, intercepted the children while on their way to Cova de Iria and jailed them. Fellow-prisoners later testified that the children, at first upset, were consoled by them but later led them in praying the rosary. The administrator interrogated the children, trying to get them to divulge the content of the secrets with threats of boiling them in oil – in vain. That month, instead of the usual apparition in the Cova da Iria on the 13th, the children reported that they saw the Lady at nearby Valinhos on August 19.
On October 13, the "Miracle of the Sun" occurred, as promised by Our Lady three months earlier. A crowd, estimated to be about 70,000 in number, gathered at the Cova da Iria. The incessant rain having ceased, a thin layer of clouds cloaked the sun, which could thus be looked at without hurting the eyes. Lúcia called to the crowd to look at the sun – which appeared to change colors and rotate like a wheel. But witnesses reported widely varying descriptions of the "sun's dance" – some seeing only radiant colors, others nothing at all.
While the crowd was staring at the sun, the three children later reported seeing images of the Holy Family, Our Lady of Sorrows with Jesus Christ, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and Jesus and Saint Joseph blessing the people.
IM THE VIRGIN OF REVELATION
"I am she who is related to the Divine Trinity. I am the Virgin of Revelation.- Our Lady at the Grotto of Tre Fontane Rome to an atheist anti Catholic Bruno Cornacchiola, who was born on 9 May 1913, he was 33 at the time of the apparition on 12 April 1947.
An Apparition
"A sign was seen in heaven; a Woman stood;
beneath her feet the moon." That waning moon
'Neath yonder pictured apparition curved,
Is time there dying with his dying months;
The Spirit showed that Vision to Saint John
Exiled in Patmos Isle. The best beloved
Deserved such solace best.
