On the Miracle of the Sun

Updated: Oct 14, 2023

October 13, 2023 is the 106th commemoration of the miracle of the sun.

On May 13, 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three children: Fernando, Jacinta, and Lucia. She promised the children that on the 13th of every month, she will visit them, and on Oct. 13, there will be a miracle in the sky for all to see. This is to end any speculation that the visions are fiction.

On the designated day, 'the huge ball began to "dance”. The huge fireball whirled rapidly... flinging out all sorts of brilliant colors ... then seemed to ... plunge in a mighty zigzag course toward the earth. The crowd was terrified, fearing this was the end of the world.'*

After about ten minutes of this terrifying event, the sun went back to its place, and everything was calm.

The Guardian wrote that 'similar events have since been filmed, in Brazil in 2011, in Colombia in 2009, and in Bosnia Herzegovina in 2010. Artur Wirowski of the Lodz University of Technology has been investigating this phenomenon since 2012 and believes there could be a meteorological explanation. Clouds of ice crystals at high altitude can create “sun dogs” or false suns and bands of rainbow colour, and sun dances may be a more complex variation of such effects.'

TRUE. But did anyone announce the exact dates those events would happen?

People forget that all miracles happen in God's time.
