Postcard of Sts. Francisco and Jacinta

By Carrie Gress

A dear friend of mine gave me this post card of the newly minted saints, Francisco and Jacinta, along with the not-yet-sainted-Lucia.


These postcards were made in Fatima, Portugal, for the 100 year anniversary of the apparitions. I've pinned it up on this rustic clipboard my 2-year-old son made in his art class that sits next to my desk. I like the contrast of their authentic peasant appearance and the additions of gold on their rosaries and halos.

These little saints have been a great reminder to me that a real encounter with Mary is life changing.
