Lucia Dos Santos, also known as Lúcia of Fátima and by her religious name Sister Maria Lúcia of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart, was a Portuguese Catholic O.C.D. nun and one of the three children, including her cousins, Francisco and Jacinta Marto, who have witnessed Marian apparitions in Fátima in 1917. Born on March 22, 1907, in Aljustrel near Fatima, Lucia and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta were caring for their family’s sheep on May 13, 1917 when, after praying the Rosary at midday, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to them.
His feast day is February 13.
