Faithful still hear Fatima call, says papal spokesman
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.
