We Catholics think of May as Mary’s month, the month we decorate our May altars and rededicate ourselves to saying the daily Rosary. For many of us, May is the month we recall the wonderful apparitions of the Blessed Mother to the three children, Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco, in the year 1917 in Fatima, a village north of Lisbon, Portugal. The most fantastic miracle was the “dancing” of the sun, seen by thousands of people. There were three other visions in the sky at the sixth apparition which many saw, and there were many cures and healings.
Father Robert Fox, now deceased, was dedicated to promoting the prayers of the Rosary and to teaching about the apparitions of Fatima. For years, Father traveled with Catholics, especially teens, on pilgrimages to Fatima. In addition, he promoted Catholic homeschooling, and wrote the preface to my book, Catholic Home Schooling.
When Father Fox visited us some years ago in Front Royal on May 13, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, Father Fox spoke about the Blessed Mother’s promise for the conversion of Russia if people would pray and sacrifice, but especially to pray the Rosary. Father believed that the changes we have seen in Russia and Eastern Europe are the miraculous consequences of the mercy of Our Lord and Our Lady, especially in response to the many Rosaries being prayed by people all over the world.
