Our Lady of Fatima (Portuguese: Nossa Senhora de Fatima is a title for the Blessed Virgin Mary due to her reputed apparitions to three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal on the thirteenth day of six consecutive months in 1917, beginning on May 13. The three children were Lucia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto.
The title of Our Lady of the Rosary is also sometimes used to refer to the same apparition (although it was first used in 1208 for the reputed apparition in the church of Prouille), because the children related that the apparition called herself the "Lady of the Rosary". It is also common to see a combination of these titles, i.e. Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima (Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima).
The events at Fatima gained particular fame due to their elements of kept secrets, prophecy and eschatology, particularly with regards to World War II and possible world wars in the future. Chief among these is also the alleged urgent need for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.The reported apparitions at Fatima were officially declared "worthy of belief" by the Catholic Church.
