The Miracle of the Sun at Fatima on October 13, 1917 is the only miracle witnessed by more than 70,000 people, reported in the secular press and accurately predicted as to time and date so far as I know. Pope John Paul II attributed his survival of the May 13, 1981 attempt on his life to the intercession of Our Lady. May 13, 1917 was the first of Our Lady's apparitions to the children ages 10, 9 and 7. Yet many people have never heard of the Miracle of the Sun, the warnings, predictions and requests made by Our Lady to make ourselves more pleasing to God and avoid His loving discipline. What does God have to do to get our attention? We should share this book and the Fatima events with as any people as we can.

I have just finished Fr. Apostoli's wonderful book on Fatima and I would recommend it to every Catholic. Our Lady's requests at Fatima are simple and can be carried out by anyone. As I read the book I couldn't help but wonder what our world would be like today if more people had heeded her message and warnings from the beginning.

Before I became Catholic three years ago, I had never heard a single thing about Fatima. But now I hear it mentioned all the time. Here's the basic background:

In 1917, three young children were visited six times by Mary in Fatima, Portugal. Through her appearances and messages, Our Mother asked the children for increased prayer, devotion, and repentance on behalf of the world. She also reinforced the primacy of the Rosary and provided three 'secrets'--three prophetic visions that unfolded over time.

Now I know that may seem unbelievable at first glance, as it did to me when I first discovered it. But there's one more twist that may cause you to reconsider.

At the climax of the visions, in order to prove their authenticity to skeptics, Mary induced "The Miracle of the Sun", an unexplained phenomenon witnessed by 80,000 people--including many atheists--some more than ten miles away. The sun appeared as an "opaque, spinning disc in the sky" and "careened to earth in a zig-zag pattern", striking terror in most witnesses.

That's the basic outline, but a new book by Fr. Andrew Apostoli titled Fatima for Today: The Urgent Marian Message of Hope (Ignatius Press, hardcover, 288 pages) goes much deeper and has positioned itself to be the best introduction to all things Fatima.

In the book, Apostoli breaks down each of Mary's messages and explores their significance for our own time. He also covers many different interpretations of the messages from popes, saints, and theologians over the past century.

I've done a lot of reading and writing about Mary over the last few years, and of course I've learned about Our Lady of Fatima.

When I was researching Our Lady of Fatima a couple of years ago, I discovered the EWTN mini-site on her and was enchanted. I read many articles, wrote some of my own, and pretty much left it at that.

In other words, the message of Fatima was lost on me.

I realize that now. I thought she was beautiful, found the tale enchanting and riveting, and had a dearth of material to write and write and write. But did she inspire real change in me?

Maybe she did. I've been praying a daily rosary for some time (though not always because I want to, mind you, but because I have to), and maybe it's the influence of all my reading and studying about Mary.

I can now say, though, thanks to the help of Fr. Andrew Apostoli's new book Fatima for Today: The Urgent Marian Message of Hope that I have taken the Fatima message to heart.

It's hard not to. Not only does Fr. Apostoli share the facts, but he delves into background that makes the facts relevant to me today, now, here. He transforms the three visionaries--Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco--from saintly figures in a holy card into real people who struggled and yet courageously gave as Mary asked them to.

Though I consider myself overdue for a good novel (I try to pepper my nonfiction reading with fiction in at least a 2-to-1 ratio), I found reading Fatima for Today to be invigorating and a page-turner.

Good storytelling will do that to me, I guess, whether in the pages of a novel or in a well-written account of a Marian apparition.

Fr. Apostoli's new book shows us that the message of Our Lady in 1917 is as needed and is as relevant today as it was then. His explanation of the reasons for decisions made regarding the message answer many questions that recent generations have had about the position of the Church on this matter. The role of Our Lady of Fatima in the life of Pope John Paul II was particularly enlightening. This book renews the clarion call made by Our Lady for prayer and renewal along with a message of hope.
