Candlelight procession at Fatima

by alte60

We will be in Lisbon from October 11 thru the 15th. We would like to visit Fatima for the day on October 12 or 13. Is there a candlelight procession every day? If so, what time. The last bus leaves Fatima at 20:30. If we that does not work, then we would like to go on October 13 for the closing procession. Any help would be appreciated.

The candlelight procession is at 2200 of October 12.
On October 13, the celebrations start at 0700, but the final mass, with the ill blessing and goodbye procession begins at 1000.
Many people stay overnight in the grounds, praying, as there is a vigil.
As for transportation, there is a train (www.cp.pt) at 2152 and Tamega (a bus company: www.avtamega.pt) has one at 03:30, but it is better confirm this, as the timetables can change.

Greetings,
Helio

Travel Tips for Fátima

Sinners

by Imaniac

People come to Fatima from all over the world, but especially from Portugal to pay for their sins. They do this by walking across the square on their knees. The distance between one end of the square and the other end is enormous, twice as big as the Vatican Square. I wouldn't want to be in their shoes (or knees). Ultimately this is what Fatima is so famous for.

Candles and wax figures (limbs, legs, heads and so on) were burned in the past as offerings for miracles performed by the Virgin. Today only candles are burned since the wax figures are recyled to make new candles.

Late night arrival and too late to see the masses!

"Great annual pilgrimage"

Twive a year ie 12-13 May and October there are catholic pilgrimages with crowds of up to 100,000 arriving for the anniversaries of the apparitions of Mary to 3 young girls from the village of Fatima back in 1917.

I had intentions to arrive on the 12th to see the crowds and atmosphere but had got tantalised with seeing the windmills and greats that are Toledo, Avila and Salamanca in Spain. The morning of the 13th i watched some of the pilgrimage televised on tv while having breakfast in my hotel in Penhas de Saude before commencing my tour around the Serra de Estrela!! Which i did, got to the Torr, Sabagueiro, Linhares before driving madly off to Fatima arriving at about 9pm!

Fatima - Portugal

"The story of three peasant children"

Fatima is a village in the center of Portugal about 70 miles north of Lisbon. It was there in 1915 that three peasant children began having a series of apparitions of angels and, later, the "Virgin Mary."
The children were: Lucia Santos and her two cousins, Francisco and Jacinta Marto.

At the time, the Portuguese government was secular and antagonistic towards religion, which led them to treat the children very harshly -- even placing them in prison with the threat of boiling them in oil unless they confessed to having made up their story. In spite of this, the children never wavered.
