Our Lady of Fatima by Katie Sahm
Over one hundred years ago, our Blessed Mother came to Fatima, Portugal and appeared to three children, Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco. In this painting, I wanted to capture just a moment of this incredible miracle. I read up on the visionaries’ descriptions of what they saw the first time Mary came to them. Sr. Lucia, then only ten years old, said…
“A shaft of light split the air and standing over a small holm oak was the most beautiful lady dressed all in white more brilliant than the sun, shedding rays of light, clear and stronger than crystal glass filled with sparkling water.”
The last part of this description really spoke to me, Lucia was very specific. I thought about the way light would look shining through a crystal glass. When this happens, the light gets split up into the different colors of the rainbow and each edge of a crystal is another reflection of this prism. I imagine this heavenly light, which contains all the colors that our eyes cannot yet see, passing through Mary, sparkling and reflecting a multitude of color.
Lucia went on in her description of this light, “… it was like a reflection, it penetrated us to the heart, it allowed us to see ourselves in God.”
