Faithful still hear Fatima call, says papal spokesman

Catholic World News - May 14, 2010

The call of Our Lady of Fatima is still heard clearly by the Catholic faithful today, said the director of the Vatican press office in a commentary on the Pope's trip to the Fatima shrine.

Describing the hundreds of thousands of people who joined the Pope at Fatima, Father Federico Lombardi asked rhetorically:

Who called them? Who convoked them? Certainly not the media, neither the expert organisers, nor the bishops, not even the Pope. We know that these people were called here by a "small lady of light" who appeared to three shepherd children in this remote and insignificant place. Nearly a hundred years have passed and the call has not lost its strength.
