All Catholic Church rejoices in adding two Saints to its numbers: Saint Francisco and Saint Jacinta Marto, the brother and sister, canonized on 13th May 2017 by Pope Francis during His Papal pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal. Saint Francisco (10) and Saint Jacinta (9) are the youngest non-martyr saints in the History of the Church!
Thanks to the intercession of Francisco and Jacinta, miracle happened,that helped to canonize the Saints:five year old Brazilian boy fell out of a window and damaged his head, which lead to the loss of brain tissue and very quickly coma. Boy’s condition was deteriorating rapidly. Parents began to pray to Jesus and Our Lady of Fatima. After begging for more urgent prayers in Carmelite Convent, one of the Sisters ran to the relics of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta, which were next to the Tabernacle, and felt the impulse to pray the following prayer: ‘Shepherds, save this child, who is a child like you’…she also persuaded the other sisters to pray to the little shepherds to intercede for him.”
All community prayed, and the boy awoke from deep coma few days later. “The doctors, some of them non-believers, said that his recovery had no explanation.” It was a miracle needed to promote cause of Sainthood of two children of Fatima!Little boy was completely cured!Praise God!
Saint Francisco, Saint Jacinta, pray for us!
