Bl. Jacinta Marto (1910–1920) was one of 3 children, who, while tending sheep near Fatima, Portugal, witnessed 3 apparitions of an angel in 1916 and several of the Virgin Mary in 1917. They were to pray for the conversion of sinners and of Russia, which was soon to fall under communism. At only 7 years old, she offered many sacrifices for sinners just as Our Lady requested. She is the patron of sick people, captives, and people ridiculed for their piety. Her feast day is February 20th.
