Sight ii

The first sighting by the children was that of a woman ‘Brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal goblet filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the most burning rays of the sun.’ who asked that they pray to the rosary every day to bring peace and an end to the war.

They tell their parents who tell others as a joke and soon the whole town knows. The children say they have been bidden to a location the following month. On this sighting the two are told they will reach heaven soon but Lucia will stay longer to spread the message (this was perhaps added following the death of the two children in the great flu pandemic as a type of retrospective prophecy). This occasion is when the first secret is given.
