Mary Mother of God appeared to three shepherd children in Fátima, Portugal six times in 1917, every 13th of the month, from May to October. In Fátima, Our Lady insistently asked the little shepherds to pray the rosary every day, offering their prayer for the peace in the world. This request created the need for rosary beads between the faithful and gave birth to a new wave of Portuguese artisans, mostly women, that started crafting by hand rosaries inspired by the apparitions. Today, We Are Portugal proudly offers online in the United States, the biggest selection of handmade in Portugal, Our Lady of Fátima rosaries.
