TradCatKnight: The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima and the three white doves
WHY OUR LADY OF FATIMA STATUES ARE SOMETIMES DEPICTED WITH THREE DOVES
In 1946, Portugal celebrated its 300th anniversary of her consecration to the Immaculate Conception. In order to manifest their great love for Our lady of Fatima, the people wished to celebrate it with great pomp and grandeur. A great procession with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima was organized which began in Fatima at the Cova de Iria where She appeared to the three children and ended at the Church of Our Lady of Fatima in Lisbon, 70 miles away.
