August 19th 1917:  Although government officials interrogated the children for a couple of days around the 13th of August, the moment Jacinta arrived on the 19th the Lady appeared.”What do you want of me?” Come again to the Cova da Iria on the thirteenth of next month, my child, and continue to say the Rosary every day. In the last month I will perform a miracle so that all may believe. Lucia then asked for the cure of some sick people. Some I will cure during the year.  (looking sadly at them) Pray, pray very much. Make sacrifices for sinners. Many souls go to hell, because no one is willing to help them with sacrifice.  Having said that she departed as she had on the other occasions.

September 13th 1917:  Despite the ridicule and jokes of the secular, atheistic press, more than 30,000 people gathered in the Cova for the September apparition. Whether drawn by devotion or curiosity, they prayed the rosary while awaiting the arrival of the visionaries and their vision. When at least the time came they could hear Lucia say, “What do you want of me?” Continue the Rosary, my children. Say it every day that the war may end. In October Our Lord will come, as well as Our Lady of Sorrows and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world.  God is pleased with your sacrifices, but He does not want you to wear the cords to bed. Keep them on during the day.  “And the conversions that some have asked to have brought about? The cures of the sick ones?”  Some I will cure, and some I will not. In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe.  With these last words still ringing in their ears, the Lady rose and disappeared in the heavens, as Lucia called to the crowd, “If you wish to see her — Look! Look!”
