Pope Pius XII PDF Print E-mail


Pope Pius XII once witnessed the solar phenomenon of Fatima while he was walking in the gardens of the Vatican. Two days later he formally declared Assumption to be as Catholic Dogma: Mary was assumed body and soul into Heaven. He described his solar experience in a letter to one of his cardinals:

"Having lifted the papers I had in my hand, I was struck by a phenomenon I had never seen before. The sun, which was fairly high, looked like a pale yellow opaque globe completely surrounded by a luminous halo, which nevertheless did not prevent me at all from staring attentively at the sun without the slightest discomfort. A very light cloud was before it. The opaque globe began moving outward, slowly turning over upon itself, and going from left to right and vice-versa. But within the globe very strong movements could be seen in all clarity and without interruption."
