Our Lady of Fatima Window — St. Elizabeth of Portugal Church, Sacramento

A large window on the right side of the nave, in a four-leaf clover shaped portal, depicts a pastoral scene of one of the appearances of Our Lady in Fatima, Portugal

of Our Lady of Fatima to the three shepherd children, Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta. Our Lady appears to be standing on a tree stump above the kneeling children with prayerfully folded hands. She is haloed, and backed by a large mantle reminiscent of the Lady of Guadalupe image. Her hands are held in front of her chest in an instructive fashion as she delivers her message to the children. The image, along with Lady of Fatima scene on the left side-altar provide excellent opportunities to meditate and pray about Our Lady’s messages in these 1917 apparitions still relevant today.
