Miracle of The Sun

Emmitsburg, Maryland

February 10, 2001

A group of about 20 people from the Thursday night prayer group at Saint Joseph’s got togther this past February 10 at the Grotto in Emmitsburg to start the 33 day Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary by Saint Louis de Montfort. This effort was led by Sister Clair Mahoney. We started at the Lourdes shrine by reciting the necessary prayers for consecration. This lasted for about 15 minutes. We then started a Rosary, saying the first 2 decades at the Lourdes shrine. We then moved to the Medjujorje shrine and did the 3rd decade. When that was complete we all moved to the Fatima shrine and started the 4 decade. We had just completed the 6th Hail Mary when Sister Clair stopped and said “ My goodness the sun is pulsating”. Everyone stopped and was astounded to be able to LOOK DIRECTLY at the sun without even having to squint. For about the next 5-7 minutes the sun would change colors from red to blue and then to gold. Brilliant rays would extend from the sun with a multitude of colors, mostly red and blue. THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO DISCOMFORT TO THE EYES WHATSOEVER WHILE LOOKING DIRECTLY AT THE SUN DURING THIS TIME. The sun would then spin and change color every few revolutions. There were about 20 people in our group and EVERYONE THERE SAW THE SAME THING. WHEN ONE PERSON SAW THE SUN TURN RED EVERYONE SAW THE SUN TURN RED. When it turned blue EVERYONE SAW IT TURN BLUE. When it started to spin EVERYONE saw it spin. When it was over you could no longer look at the sun because of its brightness. It stopped just as suddenly as it came. When we witnessed this we were all standing in the spot that I took the picture back in 1998. For about the next 5 minutes the statue of Our Lady of Fatima and the Fatima children turned gold.
