                    [description] => <p>
	Today you will celebrate Mass and then visit the Basilica where the three children (Lucia lived to adulthood) are interred. You will then journey to the countryside, where Mary appeared to Francisco and Jacinta Marto, and their cousin Lucia dos Santos from May 13, 1917 every month until on the 13th until August 19th, when she appeared at Valinhos. You will see their homes nearby, where Francisco died (Jacinta died in a Lisbon hospital) in 1919 and 1920. Return to Fatima for time to pray and contemplate the meaning of the Holy Site.
