A marvellous apparition
Thursday September 13:
It was Lucy who recited the Rosary in a loud voice, while the people answered. Only the murmur of Prayers could be heard. Suddenly shouts of joy rang outâ€¦some arms were raised, and showed something in the sky. â€œLook!… You donâ€™t see it?â€™â€™ – â€œYes, I see it!â€â€¦ A luminous globe, traveling from the east to the west, gliding slowly and majestically in spaceâ€¦
â€¦It floated in fact towards the holm-oak of the apparition. Then, the light of the sun dimmed, the atmosphere became a yellow-gold, like the previous times. The day so darkened that some reported having seen the stars from the sky. It was then that Lucy questioned the Immaculate Virgin:
What does your grace want of me?
-Continue to pray Rosary in order to obtain the end of the war. In October, Our Lord will come as well as Our Lady of Sorrows and Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus in order to bless the world.
God is satisfied with your sacrifices, but he does not want you to sleep with the rope. Wear it only during the day.
-There is a little girl here who is deaf-mute. Would not your Grace wish to cure her?
Our Lady replied that a year from now, she would be better.
– I have many other requests, some for conversion, other cure.
– I shall cure some, but others no, because Our Lord does not trust them.
– The people would indeed like to have a chapel here.
– With half of the money received so far, they should make litters and carry them on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary: the order half can be used to build the chapel.
Lucy then said that she offered Her two letters and a small flask of water with fragrance which has been given her by a man of the Parish of Olival. In offering them to Our Lady, She said to Her:
– They gave me that, Does Your Grace want it?
– That is not suitable for heaven, Our Lady replied.
Tha fourth Memoir adds:
– In October I will perform the miracle, so that all may believe.
And She began to ascend, disappearing as usual.0
