We are pleased to share this great news from our international secretariat on this blessed day, commemorating the October 13, 1917, apparition at Fatima:

The process of beatification and canonization of Sister Lucia has had today a new development, with the delivery in the Vatican’s Congregation for the Cause of Saints of the document on her “heroic virtues” called, ‘Positio Super Vita, Virtutibus et Fama Sanctitatis’. The delivery of the ‘Positio’ is an important moment in the process of beatification and canonization. This volume contains the biography of Sister Lucia, from the documents collected in the diocesan phase of the process (which took place in the Diocese of Coimbra between 2008-2017); the ‘Informatio’ (information), which describes the virtues lived by the religious, as well as the list of witness statements, her Diary, and other unpublished documents “considered relevant in the process.”This document will now be analyzed by a set of nine theologians who will issue their opinion to determine whether Sister Lucia “practiced virtues heroically.”The positive opinion of the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints is presented then to the Pope, who approves the publication of the respective decree so that the person is designated Venerable. For the beatification and canonization, it is necessary that a miracle is approved, attributed to the intercession of the Venerable or Blessed, respectively.  This information is being shared with the pilgrims at the end of Mass today in Fatima, October 13, by the Rector of the Shrine of Fatima. Sister Angela, the Vice-postulator for the Cause, will be coming to the General Assembly of the World Apostolate of Fatima (October 24-28) and will give a talk on the Sanctity of Sister Lucia.  

In the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 

Nuno Perez and Ana Reis

  1. If anyone deserves the great holy honor of sainthood -it certainly must b Lucia who saw ad spoke with the Mother of God

    1. Consecrate him in the fullness of truth dear Jesus! You knocked St Paul off his horse, please do this again for many who persecute You

    2. The whole Fatima thing didn’t teach anything about Mary being sent by God instead of Jesus Christ, so your anti-Catholic comment doesn’t make sense. If you’re gonna feel sorry for anybody, make sure that you know what’s really going on. Because if you’re blinded by your own misconceptions about Catholicism, then aren’t you the one who’s really deceived?

    3. Thank you for informing us, Jude. By the way, did you know that you were named after Saint Jude? Might want to look him up and thank your parents. 🙂
      God bless you.

    4. Lk1:48. I’m very happy to be among the generations whom The Holy Spirit predicted would call Mary’s name “blessed”. Jesus needed Mary to be among us: I could not dare to disrupt that relationship. May we pray to her for guidance?

    5. Jesus came through Mary, her flesh and her body.
      God chose his most perfect creation to carry His Son,don’t speak ill of Jesus’ Mother.

    6. No one loves Mary more than Jesus. Jesus gave us his mother from the cross while he was dying. Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit. She participated in the work of salvation.

  2. No human person in the history of this created world could ever love the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, more than her Divine Son. There is no deception in the Truth, Who gave His Blessed Mother to us while freely laying down His human life, for our sake, on the Holy Cross. Lucia, Franciso and Jacinta, pray for us sinners.

  3. Thank you Sister Lucia Dos Santos of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart, for interceding for me to be healed of Covid,-19 last April 16, 2022

  4. so excited that sister Lucia’s cause is moving forward, a sure sign that devotion to the triumph of the Immaculate heart of Our Blessed Mother is being confirmed and defended in the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of her Son Jesus, let the miracles roll!!!!!!!!

  5. Good news! May she be canonized soon.

    I also hope and pray that the false assertion, that is all over the internet, that Sister Lucia was replaced by someone else will be forever squashed. Too many gullible Catholics are falling for this lie and turning against the Church because of it.

  6. What is tobe made of the controversy surrounding the photographs of lucia? The early ones prior to 1960 appear toshow a different person from the latter. There is an awareness of this publicized. The process of canonization cannot pass over this. Because “ you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” Applicable in all circumstances. This present century says “ transparency.” A higher authority says that.

  7. Praying for her canonization. Praying for a women with stage four colon cancer with small children. Praying to her for a miracle.
