I am happy to announce that the Carmel of Coimbra has unveiled a new image of Sr. Lúcia.
In their famous biography A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary, the Carmelites of Coimbra revealed details of later apparitions of Our Lady to Sr. Lúcia in her cell of the Carmel. In fact, I’ll be talking about one of them in my later webinars!
When the Holy See published the text of the third part of the Secret of Fátima in 2000, she offered two things: an historical explanation of the facts as well as an interpretation of the third part. For twenty-one years, the explanation and interpretation have stood as the “official” stance of the Church. As time passes, and more knowledge and information about Fátima becomes available, occasion has arisen for us to reconsider some aspects of the Church’s official stance. This essay shall examine some of the reasons for a fresh look.
