Proposed alternative explanations include witnesses being deceived by their senses due to prolonged staring at the Sun and then seeing something unusual as expected. Beginning in the spring of , three Catholic shepherd children living near Fatima reported apparitions of an Angel, and starting in May , apparitions of the Virgin Mary , whom the children described as the Lady of the Rosary.
The children reported a prophecy that prayer would lead to an end to the Great War , and that on 13 October of that year the Lady would reveal her identity and perform a miracle "so that all may believe. The children's accounts were deeply controversial, drawing intense criticism from both local secular and religious authorities.
A provisional administrator briefly took the children into custody, believing the prophecies were politically motivated in opposition to the officially secular First Portuguese Republic established in Various claims have been made as to what actually happened during the event.
According to many witnesses, after a period of rain, the dark clouds broke and the sun appeared as an opaque, spinning disc in the sky. It was said to be significantly duller than normal, and to cast multicolored lights across the landscape, the people, and the surrounding clouds. The Sun was then reported to have careened towards the earth before zig-zagging back to its normal position. Some people only saw the radiant colors, and others, including some believers, saw nothing at all.
Carmel , and of Saint Joseph blessing the people. The Lady told her that they should continue to come to the Cova each month until October, when the requested miracle would occur. Hundreds, from these mixed categories, have given formal testimony. Reports do vary; impressions are in minor details confused, but none to our knowledge has directly denied the visible prodigy of the sun. They include a number of witness descriptions. The event was declared of "supernatural character" by the Catholic Church in Four times during the week that he declared the dogma of the Assumption of Mary 33 years after the actual event said to have occurred in Fatima , Pope Pius XII claimed to have witnessed the same "Miracle of the Sun".
He described himself in his handwritten notes as "awestruck. He wrote that on other days at about the same time he tried to see if he could observe the Miracle of the Sun, but was unable to. He confided this information to a number of Vatican cardinals, to Sr. Pascalina Lehnert the nun in charge of the papal apartments and finally to handwritten notes discovered in that were later placed on display at the Vatican. In , Pope Francis approved the recognition of a miracle involving two of the children, Francisco and Jacinta Marto, who were involved in the Fatima event of , which paved the way for their canonization.
Within Catholicism, the event is seen as the fulfillment of a promise by Mary, mother of Jesus to the shepherd children she appeared to several times before 13 October Fr Andrew Pinsent, research director of the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion at Oxford University , states that "a scientific perspective does not rule out miracles, and the event at Fatima is, in the view of many, particularly credible. Concluding that the event is "a public miracle of the most extraordinary kind and credibility", he sees the year of the event, as connected to significant historical milestones that call for Fatima's message of repentance: Protestantism in , Freemasonry in and Atheistic Communism in Theologian, professor, and priest Stanley L.
Jaki , concurs, concluding that by divine intervention, a coordinated interplay of natural meteorological events, an enhancement of air lens with ice crystals , was made to occur at the exact time predicted, and this is the essence of the miracle. According to Jaki, the faithful should believe that a miracle occurred at Fatima, and "those who stake their purpose in life on Christ as the greatest and incomparably miraculous fact of history", need to pay attention to facts that support miracles. Father De Marchi believed related miraculous phenomena, such as the Sun's effect on standing water from heavy rains that immediately preceded the event, to be genuine.
According to De Marchi, " Madigan wrote that what people saw was "the reflection of the Lady's own light projected on the Sun itself". Theologians, scientists, and skeptics have responded to claims that conflict with established scientific knowledge regarding the behavior of the Sun. Science writer Benjamin Radford maintains that "the sun did not really dance in the sky. This leads to a reprise of the sequence with Mickey performing even greater feats of magic bestowed upon him.
