Ito ang mga Larawan (Image ) o rebulto daw ni Maria na nabuhay at lumuha pa ng Dugo katuparan ng Pangitain ni San Juan na gagawa ang hayop ng Larawan hayop at ang larawan ay mabubuhay .
"At siya'y pinagkaloobang makapagbigay ng hininga sa larawan ng Hayop ,upang ang larawan ng hayop ay makapangusap ,at mapapatay naman ang lahat ng hindi sumasamba sa larawan ng hayop.(Rev.13:15)
Ang Larawan ng hayop na sinugatan ng TABAK pansinin ninyo na ang puso ng hayop na ito ay sinaksak ng Tabak.(Rev.13:12)
"At nadaya niya ang mga nanahan sa lupa dahil sa mga tanda na sa kaniya'y ipinagkaloon na magawa sa paningin ng hayop na sinasabi sa mga nanahan sa lupa na dapat silang gumawa ng larawan ng hayop na mayroon ng sugat ng tabak at nabuhay.(Rev.13:14)
"At silay nangsisamba sa Dragon sapagkat ibinigay niya ang kaniyang kapamahalaan sa hayop at nangagsisamba sa hayop ,na nangagsasabi ,sino ang kagaya ?at sinong makababaka sa kaniya .(Rev.13:4)
Dito sa isang aklat katoliko na ang pamagat ay "Ang aking birheng Mariang Tagapamagitan" ay ipinakilala ng Iglesia Katolica na dapat sambahin si Maria sapagkat ayon sa kanila siya daw ang Dios na makapangyarihan sa Lahat.(page.63)
At ipinag-utos ng Iglesia Katolika na Sambahin ang larawan ng hayop sa anyo ng nagpapanggap na Maria at ang pagsambang iniukol nila dito ay ang pagsambang "Hyperdulia" at ang nasa ilalim ay "Miracle of the Sun " na kung saan nagpakita ng milagro ang hayop na naganap nuong Oct.29,1917 na kung saan pinasayaw nya ang araw (Dancing of the Sun) sa paningin ng mga taong nakasaksi ng milagro ng hayop sa Fatima.(Rev.13:13)
As early as July 1917 it was claimed that the Virgin Mary had promised a miracle for the last of her apparitions on 13 October, so that all would believe. What happened then became known as "Miracle of the Sun". A crowd believed to number approximately 70,000, including newspaper reporters and photographers, gathered at the Cova da Iria. The incessant rain had finally ceased and a thin layer of clouds cloaked the silver disc of the sun. Witnesses said later it could be looked upon without hurting the eyes. Lúcia, moved by what she said was an interior impulse, called out to the crowd to look at the sun. Witnesses later spoke of the sun appearing to change colors and rotate like a wheel. Not everyone saw the same things, and witnesses gave widely varying descriptions of the "sun's dance". The phenomenon is claimed to have been witnessed by most people in the crowd as well as people many miles away. While the crowd was staring at the sun, Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta said later they were seeing lovely images of the Holy Family, Our Lady of Sorrows with Jesus Christ, and then Our Lady of Mount Carmel. They said they saw Saint Joseph and Jesus bless the people. The children were aged 10, 9, and 7 at the time.
Columnist Avelino de Almeida of O Século (Portugal's most influential newspaper, which was pro-government in policy and avowedly anti-clerical), reported the following: "Before the astonished eyes of the crowd, whose aspect was biblical as they stood bare-headed, eagerly searching the sky, the sun trembled, made sudden incredible movements outside all cosmic laws - the sun 'danced' according to the typical expression of the people." Eye specialist Dr. Domingos Pinto Coelho, writing for the newspaper Ordem reported "The sun, at one moment surrounded with scarlet flame, at another aureoled in yellow and deep purple, seemed to be in an exceeding fast and whirling movement, at times appearing to be loosened from the sky and to be approaching the earth, strongly radiating heat". The special reporter for the 17 October 1917 edition of the Lisbon daily, O Dia, reported the following, "...the silver sun, enveloped in the same gauzy purple light was seen to whirl and turn in the circle of broken clouds...The light turned a beautiful blue, as if it had come through the stained-glass windows of a cathedral, and spread itself over the people who knelt with outstretched hands...people wept and prayed with uncovered heads, in the presence of a miracle they had awaited. The seconds seemed like hours, so vivid were they."
Chapel of Apparitions, built at the place where the Fatima apparitions were reported
No movement or other phenomenon of the sun was registered by scientists at the time. According to contemporary reports from poet Afonso Lopes Vieira and schoolteacher Delfina Lopes with her students and other witnesses in the town of Alburita, the solar phenomenon was visible from up to forty kilometers away. Not all witnesses reported seeing the sun "dance". Some people only saw the radiant colors, and others, including some believers, saw nothing at all.
Since no scientifically verifiable physical cause can be adduced to support the phenomenon of the sun, various explanations have been advanced to explain the descriptions given by numerous witnesses. A leading conjecture is a mass hallucination possibly stimulated by the religious fervor of the crowds expectantly waiting for a predicted sign. Another conjecture is a possible visual artifact caused by looking at the sun for a prolonged period. As noted by Professor Auguste Meessen of the Institute of Physics, Catholic University of Leuven, looking directly at the Sun can cause phosphene visual artifacts and temporary partial blindness. He has proposed that the reported observations were optical effects caused by prolonged staring at the sun. Meessen contends that retinal after-images produced after brief periods of sun gazing are a likely cause of the observed dancing effects. Similarly Meessen states that the colour changes witnessed were most likely caused by the bleaching of photosensitive retinal cells. Meessen observes that solar miracles have been witnessed in many places where religiously charged pilgrims have been encouraged to stare at the sun. He cites the apparitions at Heroldsbach, Germany (1949) as an example, where exactly the same optical effects as at Fatima were witnessed by more than 10,000 people.
There is no evidence that people who came to Fatima, even those expecting a miracle, were staring at the sun before Lucia spoke. Most would have been focused on the tree where the children said the lady appeared. Some onlookers reported other phenomena, including luminous mist and the showers of flower petals seen around and above the tree during previous visitations.
In addition to the Miracle of the Sun, the seers at Fatima indicated that the lady prophesied a great sign in the night sky which would precede a second great war. On January 25, 1938, bright lights, an aurora borealis appeared all over the northern hemisphere, including in places as far south as North Africa, Bermuda and California. It was the widest occurrence of the aurora since 1709 and people in Paris and elsewhere believed a great fire was burning and fire departments were called. Lucia, the sole surviving seer at the time, indicated that it was the sign foretold and so apprised her superior and the bishop in letters the following day. Just over a month later, Hitler seized Austria and eight months later invaded Czechoslovakia.
