On October 13, 1917, Mary appeared again to the three children at Fatima and said,
“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.”
By then there were thousands of witnesses. Mary also said, “Do not offend the Lord our God any more, because He is already so much offended.”
At that, the Miracle of the Sun was witnessed by 70,000 people as it danced in the sky, changed colours, and was hurled towards earth as if to destroy it.
