What witness would not believe in the Miracle?
Skeptical reporters were there, in force, to expose what they were sure was a fraud. Their unbiased reports amply demonstrate that they also believed: this was not mass hypnotism or religious hysteria. The Miracle was not reserved solely for the faithful—it was "...so that ALL might believe."
What did the Church say about it?
What effect did it have on those who saw it?
What effect did it have on the nation where it happened?
What effect did it have on our future?
The answers are all in this vitally important book—a book important not just because of the authority with which it was written, but because it deals with an event of untold significance in the lives of all of us living at this time in history.
Originally published in Europe and America simultaneously, MEET THE WITNESSES is more than an exciting book. It brings to life what Paul Claudel described as "an explosion of the supernatural," and what the Jesuit scientist, Pio Sciatizzi, called "the most obvious and colossal miracle in history."
As a direct result of the Miracle, the character and government of an entire nation changed. Several key communists renounced Communism. Another direct result of the Miracle was a movement of prayer for the conversion of the atheistic leaders of Communism. Known as the Blue Army, it has grown to embrace over 22,000,000 people in 110 countries around the world. The great Shrine of Fatima, which has risen on the site of the Miracle, memorializes the astounding events of 1917, and has become the focal point for this movement of prayer and penance that is literally "the hope of the world."
