May 13 marks the anniversary of the first of six apparitions of the Virgin Mary to three shepherd children of Fátima, Portugal.
Lucia dos Santos (aged 9) and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto (aged 8 and 6, respectively) were tending sheep in central Portugal in 1917 when they had a vision of a woman surrounded by light who identified herself as the Lady of the Rosary. She exhorted them to pray the rosary for world peace and, over the course of her six apparitions, gave the children three "secrets." She promised a miracle in October, and on the 13th of that month a crowd of perhaps 70,000 people witnessed a "miraculous solar phenomenon,"
in which the Sun appeared to fall toward Earth. After initially questioning the authenticity of the children's visions, the Vatican accepted them as appearances of the Virgin Mary (Our Lady of the Holy Rosary of Fátima), and Fátima became the location of one of the greatest Marian shrines in the world, visited by thousands of pilgrims each year.

The Miraculous Medal, also known as the Medal of Our Lady of Graces, is a devotional medal, the design of which was originated by Saint Catherine Labouré following her apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
According to the teaching of the Catholic Church, the use of sacramentals such as this medal prepares people to receive grace and disposes them to cooperate with it.
The medal depicting the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Mediatrix of All Grace, crushing the serpent and standing on top of the world, Rays of light, symbolizing grace, stream down on the globe from Mary's hands. A ring surrounding the Virgin's head is inscribed with the words: "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee".
The elements of the design encapsulate major Marian dogmas and tenets.
Mother – Her open arms, the "recourse" believers have in her.
Immaculate – The words, "conceived without sin."
Assumed into Heaven – She stands on the globe.
Mediatrix – Rays from her hands symbolizing "graces."
Protectrix – Crushes the serpent (Genesis 3:15).
The large letter "M" – Mary as Mother, Mediatrix.
Cross and bar – Jesus' Cross of Redemption. The interlacing of the M and the Cross shows Mary’s close involvement with Jesus, and points to her role as Mediatrix.
12 stars – the Twelve Apostles and the vision of Saint John the Apostle in Revelation 12:1: "And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars."
Left Heart – The Sacred Heart of Jesus, Who died for the sins of mankind.
Right Heart – The Immaculate Heart of Mary, who intercedes for sinners.
Flames around both hearts – The burning love both Jesus and Mary have for all people.
