Lucia dos Santos, RIP
It is disappointing, but not surprising, to see so little notice given to Sr. Lucia's passing (cap tip: Michelle Malkin) last week, notably on the 13th. She an eye witness, with thousands of others, of miraculous events at Fatima, living into the 21st century, has been gently ignored by the masses, including many Catholics. Her participation in the the miracles of the First Saturdays Devotion by its propagation is another confirmation that God's pattern for bestowing blessings and working through the world is reflected in the Angelus. God asks, we answer, God delivers. And God calls anyone to holiness, including children. Her lifetime of humble devotion gives us another light on the path. May she rest in peace.
