The Intimate Life
 of Sister Lucia

by Fr. Robert J. Fox

"What I recommend to you above all else is that you get close to the tabernacle and pray. In this you will find the light, the strength, and the grace that you can pass on to others. . . . For this reason they need more and more to pray . . . . Let time be lacking for everything else but never for prayer and you will experience the fact that after prayer you will accomplish a lot in a short period of time"
( p. 317-318)

Lúcia de Jesus Rosa Santos – Sister Lúcia of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart, better known as Sister Lúcia of Jesus and was a Portuguese visionary and Roman Catholic Discalced Carmelite nun. She was one of the three children who experienced a series of apparitions of the Virgin Mary in Fátima, Portugal in 1917.

Lucia de Jesus dos Santos was born in Aljustrel, a village in the parish of Fátima, Portugal.  Her parents were Antonio and Maria Rosa dos Santos. She was the youngest of seven children, six girls and a boy.   By 8 she was occupied with the tending of the family's sheep, accompanied by other boys and girls of the village.

It was while in the company of her cousins, Jacinta and Francisco Marto, that the first heavenly apparition occurred, that of the Angel of Portugal, come to prepare the young trio for their mission and for an even greater visitor.

On May 13, 1917, when Lucia was 10 years old and while tending the sheep in the Cova de Iria, a woman, who later identified herself as the Blessed Virgin Mary, appeared to the children. The apparition would continue monthly on the 13th of the month until October 1917, excepts in August, when imprisonment by the anti-clerical authorities prevented it.  During each month's apparition, the Virgin encouraged prayer, especially the rosary, and sacrifice. She also communicated certain prophecies of the future (the end of World War I, the rise of error in Russia (communism) and its propagation throughout the world, the annihilation of nations, another war preceded by a heavenly sign if men did not convert, and the suffering and persecution of the good, especially the Holy Father). On Oct. 13, 1930, the bishop of Leiria-Fátima, José Alves Correia da Silva, declared the apparitions of Fátima worthy of credibility and allowed public devotion to the Virgin under the title of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fátima.

This book of The Intimate Life of Sister Lucia  will stir the hearts of many with new documents on Sister Lucia. Never, ever before, in the 2000 year history of the Church has God required a humble Sister, with little formal education, to call the Pope and the Bishops of the World to an action which would change the direction of the world. Such was the misson given Lucia, one of the little shepherds of Fatima. What has the intimate life of Lucia of Fatima been like these long decades since? Fr. Martins, who in 1973 first gave us the Memoirs and Letters of Sr. Lucia in Portuguese, French and English, now gives us, through the Fatima Family Apostolate, documents which have waited until the Third Millenium before they could be published.

This unique book off the presses, in January 2001, in the 94th year of Sister Lucia’s life, will be for many as dramatic a revelation as the Memoirs of Sister Lucia which sent the message of Fatima around the world. Sister Lucia, who was told by the Mother of God in 1917 that her cousins, Blessed Jacinta and Blessed Francisco, would soon be taken to heaven while she must remain in the world many years to be used by God, has suffered much for over 80 years. Discover how she has remained spiritually young, vivacious, joyful, humble, obedient, full of faith, working to save souls and fulfill her mission. Perhaps no one has lived the Fatima message more profoundly than has Sister Lucia, unless it be Pope John Paul II. Pope Paul VI met with her in 1967. Pope John Paul II met with her in 1982, 1991, and 2000 AD. Was her life all glorious as some think? The Intimate Life of Sister Lucia from 1917 to 2001 will reveal Lucia carrying the Cross in union with Jesus Christ in the refuge of Mary’s Immaculate Heart. It will take us to involvements for the May 13, 2000 AD, unveiling of the “Secret” of Fatima.

How did Sister Lucia work to save souls in a practical way, plus prayer? Why did Sister Lucia switch from the Dorothean to the Carmelite Order? How did she relate to others? Fr. Martins uncovers and shows documents never before seen to answer many questions.

Previously, Fr. Martins teamed up with Fr. Robert J. Fox to print the Documents on Fatima. But not until now could Fr. Fox publish this approximately 400 page book, The Intimate Life of Sister Lucia, the manuscript given him by Fr. Martins years ago.    ( more)
