Our Lady of Fátima is a Roman Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary based on apparitions reported to be experienced by three shepherd children at Fátima. The three children were Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto. The vision is also referred to as Our Lady of the Rosary because the children said the vision called herself the "Lady of the Rosary" and she appeared holding a rosary. The Queen of Heaven and Earth and patroness of purity of mind, heart, body, and soul.

First-Class Relics: items directly associated with the events of Christ's life (manger, cross, etc.) or the physical remains of a saint (a bone, a hair, skull, a limb, etc.). Traditionally, a martyr's relics are often more prized than the relics of other saints. Parts of the saint that were significant to that saint's life are more prized relics. Catholic teaching prohibits relics to be divided up into small, unrecognizable parts if they are to be used in the liturgy (i.e., as in an altar; see the rubrics listed in Rite of Dedication of a Church and an Altar).
Second-Class Relics: items that the saint owned or frequently used, for example, a crucifix, rosary, book, etc. Again, an item more important in the saint's life is thus a more important relic. Sometimes a second-class relic is a part of an item that the saint wore (a shirt, a glove, etc.) and is known as ex indumentis ("from the clothing").
Third-Class Relics: any object that has been in contact with a first or second-class relic. Most third-class relics are small pieces of cloth.
The sale of "sacred relics" (meaning first and second class) without the permission of the Apostolic See is nowadays strictly forbidden by canon 1190 of the Code of Canon Law. However, the Catholic Church permits the sale of third-class relics.
