Our Lady of Fatima Medals

Our Lady of Fatima is sometimes referred to as Our Lady of the Rosary.  She is none other than the Virgin Mary herself who was said to have appeared six times over a period of six months in 1917, during the First World War, to three shepherd children in the village of Fatima, Portugal.  It is said that she had a message from God for every man, woman and child and that was to pray to the rosary and it will bring peace and everlasting life. The visions at Fatima were officially declared "worthy of belief" in October 1930 by the Bishop of Leiria-Fátima and many people have since worn an Our Lady of Fatima medal.

On an Our Lady of Fatima medal, the Blessed virgin is usually depicted in a robe, which can be of many different colors, and appears to be floating above the clouds at her feet.  Sometimes the three shepherd children are shown around her, either standing or sitting at her feet and sometimes there are also sheep.  The medal usually has the name, Our Lady of Fatima, inscribed in a bevel around the image, which can be plain or scalloped, as well as the words, pray for us.  The Blessed Virgin is often shown wearing a crown or with rays arrayed around her head.
