No Sr. Lucia Impostor


Was there really an impostor of Sr. Lucia and a coverup of Fatima by the Church?


No. Sr. Lucia dos Santos (1907-2005) was the visionary and Discalced Carmelite nun who as a child saw Our Lady at Fatima, Portugal, in 1917. There is no evidence that she was ever “replaced” by an impostor or that the Church covered up anything about the appearances of Our Lady of Fatima. For more information, I recommend an article I wrote for the May-June 2017 issue of Catholic Answers Magazine, titled “Oh, Those Fatima Conspiracists.” The issue can be purchased from the Catholic Answers shop site at this link.
