" I want you to return here on the thirteenth of next month, the lady said.
Continue to say the Rosary every day in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war; for she alone can save it."
Lucia thinking of her mother and the words of the Pastor, wishing to clear up the doubts of people, spoke again in her own childish manner, " Will you please tell us who you are and perform a miracle so that everyone will believe that you really appear to us ?
" Continue to come here every month. In October, I will say who I am and what I desire and I will perform a miracle all shall see so that they believe."
Then Lucia spoke of the petition of the people. Our Lady answered, "Some I will cure and others not. As to the crippled boy, I will not cure him or take him out of his poverty, but he must say the Rosary every day with his family. Lucia told her of the case of a sick person who wished to be taken soon to Heaven. " He should not try to hurry things. I know well when I shall come for him." Lucia asked for the conversion of some people. The answer of the Lady was, as with the crippled boy, the recitation of the Rosary. Then to remind the children of their special vocation and to inspire them to greater fervor and courage for the future the Lady said:
" Sacrifice yourselves for sinners; and say often, especially when you make sacrifice: ' My Jesus, it is for love of you, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary' " As our Lady said these words,Lucia later described the scenes, " She opened her hands again as she had done the two previous months. The Light reflecting from them seemed to penetrate into the earth, and we saw as if into a sea of fire, and immersed in that fire were devils and souls with human form, as if they were transparent black or bronze embers floating in the fire and swayed by the flames that issued from them along with clouds of smoke, falling upon every side just like the falling of sparks in great fires, without weight or equilibrium, amidst wailing and cries of pain and despair that horrified and shook us with terror. We could tell the devils by their horrible and nauseous figures of baleful and unknown animals, but transparent as the black coals in a fire. Frightened, deathly pale, the little ones raised their eyes to Our Lady for help as Lucia cried out. Oh,... Our Lady!
Our Lady explained:
"You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go". To save them God wants to establish throughout the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people will do what I will tell you, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.
The war is going to end.In 1916 World War I, ended suddenly not knowing why.
But if they do not stop offending God,another and worse war will break out 21 years before World War II
in the reign of Pius XI. 5 years before Pope Pius XI was elected
