New Book “The Message of Fatima in Russia”

A new book, published only in Portuguese for the time being, will be presented at the Byzantine Chapel of Domus Pacis, on September 8, 2016, Feast of the Nativity of Our Lady. 

The book, written by the Portuguese author Jose Milhazes, an historian and journalist who has lived many years in Russia, is an important source of information about the history of Russia in the XX century and the link with the Fatima event.
