Fátima through the eyes of… Kasia Szybka

Kasia Szybka had never been to Portugal and she had been looking forward to travelling to Portugal, imagining a country of flower-filled meadows, sunshine and long days, of quiet and lots of nature. They said that the Portuguese were very friendly and welcoming, like the Poles and that she should go to Nazaré.
But first of all she went to Fátima, where she would find herself in the midst of a throng of people, to draw but also to pray and celebrate in communion the anniversary of the apparitions of Fátima, equally venerated in Poland which is a catholic country, like Portugal. 
Initial worry turned into hope and freedom and into enormous admiration for the faith of thousands of people who came together to pray, in silence, in an extremely moving moment.
