FOURTH APPARITION OF THE LADY
The fourth apparition comes in two parts because the children were taken away by the administrator of the province of Ourem. Because of this “kidnapping”, the children missed the appointment with the lady. The apparition on August 13 along with the intrigue that took place at Ourem and the apparition on August 19 must be examined carefully. It is futile to hope the story of the “kidnapping” is a fabrication to cover up the children’s parents finally using their God given parental authority to stop the children from going to the Cova da Iria. The likelihood of this is almost zero.
