Christmas came early this year as the world watched 33 miners in Chile being rescued from more than 2,000 feet below the surface of the earth. Was it a miracle that all survived?It was first acknowledged that the men were still alive on Aug. 22, the Feast of the Queenship of Mary. Another significant date was the final recovery of all the men, Oct. 13, the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. These men were coming from the darkness of inner earth to daylight for the first time in over two months. Was all this a mere coincidence? Or was it a case of the Virgin Mary showing her love for her children and her respect for life?
