Rosaries, a litany and Marian songs will be part of the program to honor Mary, the Mother of God on Saturday, Oct. 14, at St. Mary’s Church in Cottonwood at noon. It was on Oct. 13, 1917, that the three children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, as on the other five occasions, first saw a bright light, and then they saw Our Lady appear over the holm oak. Our Lady’s message to the children was, “Let them offend Our Lord no more for He is already much offended.” At the end of her visit, 70,000 people saw the sun dance. Let’s spread the word and get lots of people there to get the good news message out there to combat all the bad news these days. Prairie Community
