Thousands of people flocked Fatima on August 13, 1917, driven by presumed visions and miracles, but the provincial administrator Artur Santos (no relation to Lucia) intercepted and jailed the children before they could reach Cova da Iria, because Fatima events were politically disruptive. He interrogated and threatened the children to divulge the secrets of the Blessed Mother.  Lucia told him everything except the secrets but volunteered to ask Our Lady permission to reveal them. She appeared to the little shepherds on 15 August, the Feast of the Assumption, at nearby Valinhos.

The video shows Fortitude because the children would rather die than reveal the secrets.
