Fifth Apparition at Fatima of the Virgin Mary

Interest arose throughout Portugal and the crowd grew to tens of thousands of people. The children finally arrived at the Cova de Iria, and began to pray the Rosary with the people. We then saw the flash of light and Our Lady appeared on the holm oak.

"Continue to pray the Rosary in order to obtain the end of the war. In October Our Lord will come as well as Our Lady of Dolours and Our Lady of Carmel. Saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world. God is pleased with your sacrifices. He does not want you to sleep with the rope on, only wear it during the daytime."

"I was told to ask you many things. The cure of some sick people, of a deaf-mute..."

"Yes, I will cure some, but not others. In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe."

Then Our Lady began to rise as usual and disappeared.
