It's very strange how the described "enlightenment" visitation occurred
on the same day that SL wrote the third secret.
Spirit Daily writes that the biography by the nuns says that OLF appeared to Lucia on January 3, 1944. http://www.spiritdaily.com/Pathway2.htm
Switch over to the Vatican website and see her letter about the Third Secret,
both in her writing and the translation, and the date is the very same day. http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_20000626_message-fatima_en.html
The Vatican claims plainly that the first two parts are from 1941, but that
the Third is from Jan 3, 1944, (is it me or do the handwritings seem different ?)
which is the very same day.
from Vatican website: "The third part of the “secret” was written “by order of His Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and the Most Holy Mother ...” on 3 January 1944. "
from Spirit Daily's account of the biography:
"The biography, just released in English by the World Apostolate of Fatima and entitled A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary, replete with many new photographs, details how on January 3, 1944, thirty-seven years after the iconic 1917 apparitions -- while waiting for the Lord to answer an urgent prayer precisely to do with the writing of the secret for a bishop -- Our Lady of Fatima made another appearance to the nun/visionary"
