Sister Lucia, Rest in Peace

Catholic World News and Vatican news; Eternal Word Television Network: "Fatima, Feb. 14 (CWNews.com) - Sister Lucia, the last survivor among the three Portuguese children to whom the Virgin Mary appeared at Fatima, has died at the age of 97.

Sister Lucia died on February 13 at her Carmelite convent in Coimbra, Portugal, after a long illness. Living in isolation in the cloistered convent, Sister Lucia had reportedly lost her eyesight and hearing in the months preceding her death."

May her soul be at this moment rejoicing before the face of our Lord Jesus Christ.
