Here’s the first-hand account of the Dominican priest and sculptor who worked under the direction of Sr. Lucia — the last surviving witness to the 1917 Marian apparitions in Fatima — as she guided him in perfecting the famed statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Sr. Lucia insisted Our Lady’s hands be positioned just so, the tunic fall exactly the way she remembered, the star placed on the proper spot on the tunic, and the ball of light around her neck reaching almost to her waist. She would make corrections as Fr. Tom worked, and at times would even take one of the tools and make changes to his model. Fr. Tom emerged with far more than an exact replica of how Our Lady appeared; he came to understand — and recounts here in these pages — Sr. Lucia’s intimate explanations of what happened in Fatima, the spiritual meanings of the apparitions, whether the Consecration to Russia occurred, why the secrets had to remain secrets for so long, and why Mary chose to appear to three young shepherd children in rural Portugal. Fr. Tom reminds us that Fatima is a place of miracles, and he points us toward the penitential character of Our Lady’s message, especially the importance of praying the Rosary. Few books can provide such a penetrating, close encounter with a major Catholic event as Fr. McGlynn’s Vision of Fatima. And only this book leads us into the heart and mind of a Portuguese nun who met face to face with the Mother of God.

Though the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima took place almost a hundred years ago, Our Lady's call to prayer and penance for the salvation of souls and peace in the world is as relevant now as when first delivered to three Portuguese peasant children in 1917. At the peak of the First World War, our Lady warned of another worldwide conflict, the rise and spread of Communism, and a terrible persecution of the Church unless people repented of their sins and returned to God. She also requested devotion to her Immaculate Heart and a special consecration of Russia. Much of what Our Lady of Fatima said was revealed soon after her appearances, but the third and final "secret," which was not a message but a prophetic vision seen by the children, was not unveiled by the Vatican until 2000. Pope John Paul II, who read the third secret while recovering from the attempt upon his life in 1981, believed the vision signified the sufferings the Church had endured in the twentieth century. Because of the prophetic nature of her messages, Our Lady of Fatima has been the subject of much controversy and speculation. In this book, Father Andrew Apostoli carefully analyzes the events that took place in Fatima and clears up lingering questions and doubts about their meaning. He also challenges the reader to hear anew the call of Our Lady to prayer and sacrifice, for the world is ever in need of generous hearts willing to make reparation for those in danger of losing their way to God.

The authors had three unique influences to help them write the Call to Fatima: The Missed Message: – They had access to the writings of the servant of God Sr. Lucia before and after she died. – They had access to those who knew the servant of God Sr. Lucia personally and who wanted to share their knowledge to what Sr. Lucia wanted the world to know about Fatima. – People from around the world approached the film directors to give their support to make Sr. Lucia’s writings into a double award winning film titled the Call to Fatima: The Story and the Message and to translate it to twelve languages. Their privileged position and unique insight shaped and influenced them to write down their accumulated knowledge in the hope that the Call to Fatima: The Missed Message will save souls from eternal death. It was Cardinal Ratzinger (now retired Pope Benedict XVI) who signed off Sr. Lucia’s book Calls from the Message of Fatima for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican. He turned to the late Fr. Luis Kondor, the vice postulator for Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto and stated, “Calls from the Message of Fatima is the most important book for Catholics for twenty-first century.” When Fr. Luis Kondor gave Thomas McCormack permission to start the Call to Fatima film, it dawned on him and others that the majority of Catholics missed the central message of Fatima. The chapter to Pope Francis is pleading with some urgency to revive the Five First Saturday Devotion and restore the daily family rosary around the world, in order that the Fatima promise of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary can be accelerated as requested by Pope Benedict XVI in Fatima on the 13 May 2010. Without knowing it at the time, this work first started on the 13 May 1999, and the authors have no doubt the hand of God through Mary made it possible. It is yet another example of how much God loves us and how much he wants to save our souls.

The so-called ¿Fátima prayer," O my Jesus, surely ranks among the Church's most popular prayers. In the space of just twenty-nine words, it broaches some of the great themes of Christianity: sin, forgiveness, mercy, heaven, hell. The author offers here reflections on this prayer, resulting in a work of popular theology and spiritual writing.
