The three great angelic manifestations of the Guardian Angel of Fatima took place in the Spring, Summer and Fall of 1916. The exact date is not known because, as Sister Lucy wrote: “… at the time I did not know how to reckon the years, the months, or even the days of the week.” However, by remembering the weather outside, she was able to indicate the season when each of the three apparitions took place. Lucy had just turned nine, Francisco was barely eight, and Jacinta was only six years old.
