Fourth apparition of Our Lady
Location: Valinhos
Date: August 19, 1917
People present (on the 13th): 15000 to 18000, though some writings mention only 5000

– What do you want of me
– I want you to continue going to the Cova da Iria on the 13th, and to continue praying the Rosary every day. In the last month, I will perform a miracle so that all may believe. [If you did not come back with them to the Village, it would be the best-known Miracle; St Joseph was to come with the Child Jesus to give peace to the world, and also our Lord would come to bless the people; our Lady of the Rosary would come with an angel on each side, and Our Lady surrounded with an arch of flowers.]
– What do you want done with the money that the people leave in the Cova da Iria?
– Have two litters made. One is to be carried by you and Jacinta and two other girls dressed in white; the other one is to be carried by Francisco and three other boys. The money from the litters is for the “festa” of Our Lady of the Rosary, and what is left over will help towards the construction of a chapel that is to be built here.
– I would like to ask you to cure some sick persons.
– Yes, I will cure some of them during the year.
Then, looking very sad, Our Lady said:
– Pray, pray very much, and make sacrifices for sinners; for many souls go to hell, because there are none to sacrifice themselves and to pray for them.

Fifth apparition of Our Lady
Location: Cova da Iria
Date: September 13, 1917
People present: 20000 to 30000

“- Continue to pray the Rosary in order to obtain the end of the war. In October Our Lord will come, as well as Our Lady of Dolours and Our Lady of Carmel. Saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world. God is pleased with your sacrifices. He does not want you to sleep with the rope on, but only to wear it during the daytime.
– I was told to ask you many things, the cure of some sick people, of a deaf-mute.
– Yes,I will cure some, but not others. [Because Our Lord does not want to believe them] . In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe.
[- People would like to have here a little chapel.
– [From] half the money collected till today make two litters for our Lady of the Rosary; the other half is to help building the little chapel. I offered her two letters and a glass with scented water.
– They gave me this, if you want of them.
– This is not appropriate to heaven.]»

Sixth apparition of Our Lady
Location: Cova da Iria
Date: October 13, 1917
People present: 50000 to 70000

“- What do you want of me?”
– I want to tell you that a chapel is to be built here in my honour. I am the Lady of the Rosary. Continue always to pray the Rosary every day. The war is going to end, and the soldiers will soon return to their homes.
– I have many things to ask you: the cure of some sick persons, the conversion of sinners, and other things…
– Some yes, but not others. They must amend their lives and ask forgiveness for their sins.
Looking very sad, Our Lady said:
– Do not offend the Lord our God any more, because He is already so much offended! {If the people amend, the war will be over, and if they do not amend their ways, the world will come to an end.}
[- Is there anything more you want of me?
– No, I do not want anything more of you.]
Then, opening her hands, she made them reflect on the sun, and as she ascended, the reflection of her own light continued to be projected on the sun itself.
After Our Lady had disappeared into the immense distance of the firmament, we beheld St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady robed in white with a blue mantle, beside the sun. St. Joseph and the Child Jesus appeared to bless the world, for they traced the Sign of the Cross with their hands. When, a little later, this apparition disappeared, I saw Our Lord and Our Lady; it seemed to me that it was Our Lady of Dolours. Our Lord appeared to bless the world in the same manner as St. Joseph had done. This apparition also vanished, and I saw Our Lady once more, this time resembling Our Lady of Carmel.
