World Wars


The Angel’s apparitions (1916) and Our Lady (1917) in Fatima happened during the First World War which, started in 1914 and ended in 1918.  

In the second apparition, Our Lady express herself like this:

« That you come the 13th of the next month that you continue to recite the Rosary every day to our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace in the world and the end of the war, because only She will be able to aid you. »

(Memories of Sister Lucia I; page 176)

 In the third apparition of Our Lady:

« The war shall end if people truly stop blaspheming God. If they don’t during the pontificate of Pius XI a worse war shall start. If you suddenly see a bright unknown light one night, know that is a sign from God, which He is giving you to let you know that He is going to punish the world for her sins, this with war, famine, persecution of the church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I ask that Russia be consecrated to my Immaculate Heart and that you receive Holy Communion every first Saturday if the month as reparation. If the people do as I ask and really take heel of my words, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If this does not occur, Russia will spread her false teaching throughout the world, war and persecution of the church are inevitable. The good shall suffer martyrdom, the Holy Father shall suffer much, and different nations will be annihilated. But in the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph. »  

(Memories of Sister Lucia I; page 176 e 177)



On 13rd October, Our Lady finally declares who she was and prophesies about the First World War:

« I want to tell you to build a chapel in my honour, I am the Lady of Rosary, and I want you to continue to pray the rosary every day. The war will end and the soldiers will return to their houses very soon. »

(Memories of Sister Lucia I; page 180/181)

Soldiers in the trenches in the first world war 


The Second World War begin in 1939 until 1945. Alexandrina, already lived in her little room since 1925 and from 1938 to 1942, every Friday she lived The Passion of Jesus also to repair the committed atrocities. 

Alexandrina, already in 1936, in a letter to the director, in September 10, predicts:

«These atrocities are in great danger of spreading! » (The Spanish Civil War was also occurring.)

 (Letters to Father Mariano Pinho; 10/09/1936)


"Guernica", of Pablo Picasso


 One of Alexandrina’s vision:

« I don’t know for sure, but it seemed to me that it was two or three o’clock in the morning: My God! Such horror! I did not know what it was but, it was the destruction of the world. Everything was going down: houses, trees, roofs, everything was I ruins. A scary scenario! Crammed with all of this, I saw many that I could not even count, it seemed people moving around under that roof and above the hideous serpents: they were so big, so ugly! But I did not see not even one person getting out of those ruins.

A while later, I began to see from far way my dear Mother of Heaven. She was suspended from high above, I do not know to say how she did it, and she was dressed in white, with her head low and with a sad face. She was coming forward and all the ruins vanished, everything went plain. What was until then ruins was now lighted… Some time later, the destruction, the ruins repeated again, but not in the eyes of our dear Mommy. »

 (Letters to Father Mariano Pinho; 23/06/39)


«(Alexandrina) (looking at Our Lady exclaimed)

Oh Mother, save Portugal! Oh Mother, with your pain!

Oh Mother, save Portugal! Oh Mother, with your pain!

Convert the sinners!

Oh Mother, save Portugal and convert the sinners!

Mommy, pray for you to Jesus!

Oh Mother, Oh Mother, answer you little daughter!

I do not want war in Portugal; I want peace in the whole world!

Do not forget my requests, Oh Mother!! »

(Ecstasies; 09/05/1941)


«(Alexandrina) (and then she spoke like this, but she was on her knees :)

I am going to see Jesus. I adore you, Oh Sacred Heart of Jesus! Come, do not separate more from me! I believe you will save Portugal! I believe that he is going to be saved! But I want more; give peace to the world!

Oh Jesus of Eucharistic, Oh Divine King, save the world that he is Yours! I am going to see Jesus, I am going to see Jesus! »

 (Ecstasies; 05/07/1940)
