The Fatima Children Were Shown Hell By Our Lady
In 1917, during World War I, the Virgin Mary appeared to three children at Fatima, Portugal on the 13th of each month from May through October. During here appearance on July 13th, 1917, she showed these three young children, ages 7 to 10, a vision of Hell.
“The Blessed Virgin Mary opened her hands, and “rays of light seemed to penetrate the earth, and we saw as it were a sea of fire.
Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that issued from within themselves together with great clouds of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in huge fires, without weight or equilibrium, amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fear. (It must have been this sight which caused me to cry out, as people say they heard me.)
The demons could be distinguished by their terrifying and repellent likeness to frightful and unknown animals, black and transparent like burning coals. Terrified and as if to plead for help, we looked up at Our Lady, who said to us so sadly: “You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go.”
Thus, when you say the rosary, say after each mystery:
“O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy Mercy.”
After this vision, the children lived lives of prayer (especially before the Blessed Sacrament and the Holy Rosary), sacrifice and penance for sinners so that sinners might be converted and saved from the fires of Hell that God allowed Mary to show them.
