This special portrait of the Holy Family depicts a vision that the three children of Fatima, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, saw during the “Miracle of the Sun” on October 13, 1917 .
Though this vision is explained in all of the major documentation of Fatima , not very many people are aware of it.
During the “Miracle of the Sun,” the sun swirled in the sky and great shafts of color flooded the entire plateau of Fatima, Portugal .
The sun then plummeted towards the Earth, and the over 70,000 people present thought it was the end of the world. At this same time, the children of Fatima saw the following vision, as described by Sr. Lucia:
When our Lady disappeared in the immense distance of the sky, next to the sun, we saw St. Joseph holding the child Jesus and Our Lady dressed in white with a blue mantle. St. Joseph and the child seemed to be blessing the world, making the sign of the cross
(Letter from Sr. Lucia to her Bishop, December 8, 1941, Tuy, Spain).
