In the Spring of 1916, the Angel of Peace
appeared to Portuguese shepherd children
a few times. He began in the usual way, by
saying, "Fear not." The same angel then
said, "Pray with me." Catholic Church tra-
dition had long since identified St Michael
the Archangel as the Angel of Peace.
The Fatima children were most affected by
the angel's crystalline beauty and majestic
countenance. In fact, he looked no older
than a teenager, even though he was time-
less. The following year, the three children
would be visited by a lady made of light.
