Heart most pure

O come to the throne of grace,
O come to the heart most pure!
To Mary, our hope of life,
In whom salvation is sure.

O Lady of Fatima, hail!
Immaculate Mother of grace;
O, pray for us, help us today,
Thou hope of the human race!

- Our Lady of Fatima hymn

The miracle of the doves:
The statue of Our Lady of Fatima left the Cova da Iria for Lisbon in 1946. On this occasion, white doves let loose by someone in the crowd, fluttered down to rest by the feet of the statue and remained there for days without food and drink, oblivious to the jostling crowds, blaring bands and the long road and river journey back to Fatima.
