We have had two filming sessions in Fatima with Casa do Povo the local folk group who are providing authentic actors and sites etc. We also filmed in a London studio with a young Catholic actress Rachel Clifford playing Our Lady of Fatima and a young Catholic actor Liam Driver playing the Angel of Peace.

EWTN's The Message of Fatima


Bl. Francisco and Jacinta
The Message of Fatima

A new 5 part docudrama from EWTN.


We are now working on a new docudrama for EWTN which will be broadcast to coincide with the one-hundredth anniversary of the apparitions during 1917. It's a very ambitious task with 5 episodes + a one off special.

Also we are very happy to be working with a local Fatima Folk group called Casa do Povo who will provide the actors. Below is a shot of the actors who will play the seers.

The young actors from Casa do Povo Folk Group
Apparitions of Our Lady and Angels are very rare and when they do appear its usually at a time of great danger. The twentieth century as a whole was a time of great calamity and destruction. It is clear that apparitions of Our Lady were warnings for humanity, she said that the war (World War I) would soon end but that an even greater one would break out in the reign of Pope Pius XI if man did not stop offending God. The prophecies of Fatima seem to cover all the calamitous events for the following 100 years, wars, Communism, impurity etc. I wonder whether there is yet something even more terrible to happen, perhaps to coincide with the centenary?  


These apparitions are known as private revelations but the Church has ruled that they are authentic. It's up to us to live our faith and believe. Public revelation of course comes to us through the Old and New Testament, and the deposit of faith in Tradition via Catholic Church.


I hope this docudrama will help a little in task of bringing Our Lady's message to as many people as possible. Especially the First Five Saturdays devotion which is being ignored by so many Catholics. The message of Fatima is very relevant today, with so many blasphemies being committed against Our Lord and against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Our Lady said to Jacinta that more people go to Hell for sins of impurity than for any other reason. The modern media, TV, film and the Internet is jam-packed with impurity. I need your prayers for this project; so please if you find a spare second or two remember me, here is angel's prayer from the apparitions at Fatima in 1916.



"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love you!
I beg pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You."
