Our Lady of Fatima Shrine at St. John’s Catholic Church

Abstract/Description: This postcard depicts the beautiful Shrine of Lady Fatima at St. John’s Catholic Church located in St. Pete Beach, Florida. Lady Fatima is reference to a Marian apparition in Fatima, Portugal around 1917. Marian apparitions are sightings of the Virgin Mary that are named by the city they occurred in. This courtyard shrine shows three children, who were shepherds, being visited by the angel of Mary. The children claimed to have seen the angel on several occasions and were taught prayer and received prophecy. This apparition is particularly famous due to the alleged prediction of the end of World War I, as well as the request for the Consecration of Russia.
