The 13th of July, 1917
A few moments after arriving at the Cova da Iria, near the holmoak, where a large number of people were praying the Rosary, we saw the flash of light once more, and a moment later Our lady appeared on the holmoak.
“What do you want of me?” I asked.
“I want you to come here on the 13th of next month, to continue to pray the Rosary every day in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary, in order to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war, because only she can help you.”
“I would like to ask you to tell us who you are, and to work a miracle so that everybody will believe that you are appearing to us.”
“Continue to come here every month. In October, I will tell you who I am and what I want, and I will perform a miracle for all to see and believe.”

Mehmet Ali Ağca, who shot Pope John Paul II, wants to attend annual ceremonies at Portugal’s Fatima shrine and meet with Pope Benedict XVI, who is also scheduled to attend, his lawyer said on Thursday.
Lawyer Hacı Ali Özhan told the Associated Press he has written to Portugal’s president and prime minister seeking permission for Ağca to travel there for the May 13 event. A letter was also sent to the Vatican, requesting a meeting between Benedict and Ağca at Fatima, Özhan said. Neither Lisbon or the Vatican have replied to the March 16 letters, which were made available to the AP. Ağca was released from prison in January after completing a sentence for the 1979 killing of Turkish newspaper editor Abdi İpekçi. Ağca shot John Paul II on May 13, 1981, as the pope rode in an open car in St. Peter’s Square, during a period in which he had escaped from prison. The pontiff was hit in the abdomen, left hand and right arm. The motive for the attack remains a mystery.
