Since Sister Lucia met the Lady brighter than the sun and saw the Light which is God, she never took her eyes off her face, which was etched forever in her heart. Her eyes brightened by that unmistakable light, never strayed from this Star, which led sometimes into the midst of thick darkness, lit only by the certainty of the Mother’s promise:
I will never leave you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.
Mary is always the way, the guide, and light that leads to God, Trinity of Love.
