Pilgrims See Sun Halo at Fatima on May 13

On Friday, May 13, as is customary, a multitude of pilgrims were praying in Fatima, Portugal, to honor the first apparition of Our Lady at that great shrine.

At noon, which is the time that Our Lady appeared at Fatima on May 13, 1917, a beautiful solar halo appeared in the sky and was evident to all. The phenomenon was also noted by many Portuguese newspapers together with pictures of the event.

This is significant. Friday’s solar halo reminds us of the miracle of the sun that took place in Fatima on October 13, 1917, the date of the sixth and last apparition of Our Lady at Fatima.

This connection raises the question that even one of the area newspaper noted: Was Friday’s solar halo a sign from Our Lady?

The phenomenon of solar halos is explained by science. However, what science cannot explain (and this is not science’s role) is why this solar phenomenon took place at Fatima on May 13, at the very time and on the same day that Our Lady appeared at Fatima.

  2. It may not have been a miracle like the Sun seen dancing across the sky, as witnessed by a 70,00 strong crown on May 13th 1917 at Fatima (including an atheist journalist sent by the Masons to discredit the story but who after witnessing it converted to the Catholic faith). It is nevertheless a sign to those with faith. It is no coincidence that Pope PiousXII was appointed Archbishop in the Sistine Chapel on 13th Mat 1917 and later, that Pope John Paul 2nd was shot on 13th May 1981 (and who consecrated the world, including Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary). Sure, science can explain the phenomena of a solar Halo but not the significance of why it appeared on this exact date two years in a row.
