A GIFT of MIRACULOUS VISIONS~Fatima:Celebrating Her Centennial by Joan Tarca Alix, began after Joan read Fatima for Today: The Urgent Marian Message of Hope by Father Andrew Apostoli, world-renowned Fatima authority. Joan says, “I became consumed with its content and realized the 1917 Fatima events were applicable to my present life.”
Fatima continued to be a fascination for Joan and her husband, Patrick. They began volunteer work for the Rhode Island Division of the World Apostolate of Fatima, and Joan researched both past and present Fatima occurrences. Through a series of coincidental meetings, this book idea emerged. As the writing unfolded, Joan worked closely with a local teacher and her students, to capture meditative responses when shown the scholarly text outline from the Sanctuary of Fatima 2017 Centennial Committee. These reflections included in the book, afford the reader a connection to the three Fatima shepherds of 1917.
A GIFT of MIRACULOUS VISIONS~ Fatima: Celebrating Her Centennial brings artistic imagery and inspirational text together. It offers a gift and celebration to the reader with a continued renewal in devotion to Mary Our Lady of Fatima.
