Divine Intervention in Human Events

'The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima' is a likable and earnest reinactment of the events of 1917 when Mary, the Mother of Jesus, appeared to three peasant children in Fatima, Portugal. Facing persecution by family, friends, and the newly established atheist socialist government, the drama shows how timely events unravel their significance in human and spiritual history.

As a film it is above average for selection, acting, and development. The children's key performances are mostly heartfelt. Susan Whitney is particularly convincing as Lucia, but Sherry Jackson as Jacinta is nearly as believable. Gilbert Rolland plays Hugo, a hearty but well-meaning skeptic-sinner who offers some needed tenderness for the children. As a movie, 'The Miracle...of Fatima' is a decent and memorable viewing experience.
