Here’s the first-hand account of the Dominican priest and sculptor who worked under the direction of Sr. Lucia as she guided him in perfecting the famed statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Sr. Lucia made corrections as Fr. McGlynn worked, and at times would even take one of the tools and make changes to his model. Fr. McGlynn emerged with far more than an exact replica of how our Lady appeared; he came to understand–and recounts here in these pages–Sr. Lucia’s intimate explanations of what happened at Fatima, the spiritual meanings of the apparitions, whether the Consecration to Russia occurred, why the secrets had to remain secrets for so long, and why Mary chose to appear to three young shepherd children in rural Portugal.
