Marian Collection available from CCC of America. I will be reviewing The Day the Sun Danced: The True Story of Fatima. As you might or might not have been aware, the Church celebrated Our Lady of Fatima on May 13th. This movie begins with three shepherd children - Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto. One day an angel appears to them in 1916. He taught them how to pray and make sacrifices all to prepare them for what was going to happen to them very shortly. and asks the children to pray with him. On May 13th of the following year, the Virgin Mary appeared to the children. Word got out when Jacinta told her unbelieving mother and soon more and more people began to go up to the place where the young shepherds saw Mary. Mary instructed the children to continue to come and on October 13th, she would reveal who she was and perform a miracle. She also encouraged the children to continue to pray the Rosary. On October 13th there were tens of thousands of people there, including many government skeptics. However, even they could not deny what occurred. Mary appeared and it seemed as if the sun was dancing, changing colors, and rotating like a wheel.
The Day the Sun Danced is the flagship of CCC of America, and if you can only buy one religious movie for your children this year, then make it this one. It has a simple message for children and the childlike. Pray the Rosary. Go to Mass. Make sacrifices in reparations for not only your sins, but everyone's sins. And consecrate yourself to the heart of Jesus and His mother Mary. CCC of America recently re-mastered and re-released this movie. The first 1,000 people to order the DVD here will get it for a low price of $9.99, and the first 100 people will also receive a children's prayer poster. There is also a companion book to the film located here.
This movie was provided to me for free by CCC of America in exchange for an honest review.
