Sixth apparition of Our Lady


Location: Cova da Iria


Date: October 13, 1917


People present: 50000 to 70000


«- What do you want of me?”


– I want to tell you that a chapel is to be built here in my honour. I am the Lady of the Rosary. Continue always to pray the Rosary every day. The war is going to end, and the soldiers will soon return to their homes.


– I have many things to ask you: the cure of some sick persons, the conversion of sinners, and other things…


– Some yes, but not others. They must amend their lives and ask forgiveness for their sins.

Looking very sad, Our Lady said:

– Do not offend the Lord our God any more, because He is already so much offended! {If the people amend, the war will be over, and if they do not amend their ways, the world will come to an end.}

[- Is there anything more you want of me?

– No, I do not want anything more of you.]

Then, opening her hands, she made them reflect on the sun, and as she ascended, the reflection of her own light continued to be projected on the sun itself.

After Our Lady had disappeared into the immense distance of the firmament, we beheld St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady robed in white with a blue mantle, beside the sun. St. Joseph and the Child Jesus appeared to bless the world, for they traced the Sign of the Cross with their hands.


 When, a little later, this apparition disappeared, I saw Our Lord and Our Lady; it seemed to me that it was Our Lady of Dolours. Our Lord appeared to bless the world in the same manner as St. Joseph had done. This apparition, and I saw Our Lady once more, this also vanished time resembling Our Lady of Carmel
