Despite a persistent rain, more than 100,000 people gathered at The Shrine of Our Lady Of Fatima to pray and witness the reburial of Carmelite Sister Lucia dos Santos, the last of three Fatima visionaries. Sister Lucia died Feb13, 2005, in her cloistered
convent in Coimbra, Portugal, at the age of 97. She had been buried temporarily at the Carmelite convent while preparations were made for final burial alongside her two cousins, Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto , at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima.
In 2000 Pope John Paul II beatified Sister Lucia's cousins, who died as children.
