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.
