Wow - How to begin! Here we are in the second week of Lent and many are prepping for a very different kind of Lent and a different kind of life actually. America as we knew it is over. The dominoes are falling - quarantines, suspended concerts, gatherings and yes MASSES (Italy has already declared it!), police state, postponed or cancelled elections, job loss, income loss, lives lost, monetary system colapse - ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT by the globalists in a year or so when all has calmed down - - But there is hope - an eternal one!
The pandemic is here and it looks like either Americans are so complacent that they think nothing bad can ever happen to them or there is a blatant deep state attack on the US of A. There are many reports that we do not have enough people tested. I have heard first hand reports from hospital workers that flu like symptoms are not being tested for this virus - ALL OVER THE COUNTRY! Looks like the test kits are coming in this week to many areas FINALLY!! But I am afraid a bit too late. Someone dropped the ball and poor President Trump was told by officials that everything is under control - he needs to come clean with America and help them the best he can at this point. So very sad for him and this country. We need to pray and fast like we have never done before. It is here folks - no stopping it now and this is no prediction - it is now a reality.
I will leave you to search the internet for info - I use Brighteon for info as the others sensor or ban real news. I do believe we will soon have a police state like China when the quarantines come into effect and we will have blatant chaos and civil unrest. They have always blamed Trump for everything so this is a given. Who knows if we will even have an election. It is real and it has got to be given to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Now for the spiritual side of this mess - Many souls are sick and many are dying. Let us turn back the clock to the 1918 flu pandemic. The so called Spanish flu was not man made like this one but it was just as deadly. I truly believe God allowed both to happen - obviously - He is God! He never wills this but He did allow it.
If you remember the story of Fatima, the three children saw Our Lady six times and once she showed them Hell and asked that they pray for the souls falling into Hell each day because there is no one to pray for them. She asked that they pray for these souls. Sweet little Jacinta was very moved, as they all were. Her tender heart was so moved that she prayed constantly for these souls and offered up many sacrifices.
Our Lady told them that they were to go to Heaven and this sustained them when they saw the horrors of Hell. Little Jacinta and Francisco were told that they would die very soon. In fact, they both died during this 1918 flu pandemic. They both offered up their sufferings and pain for the souls that were in danger of being lost. Little Jacinta was told by the doctors that she would need an operation in Lisbon. Our Lady came to her and asked her for a heroic death of dying alone in this hospital and that it would be painful. She of course agreed but cried to Lucia that she wanted her mother to be with her. Lucia reminded her that Our Lady would be with her and that she would not be alone in a spiritual sense. This comforted her. Little Jacinta offered much and she is now an incorrupt saint!!
This story should be told to our family and we should imitate this love and dedication for suffering and dying souls that are in danger right now of being lost for all of eternity. We are seeing the numbers climb and we do not know what the end figure will be but like I said in my last article - THIS IS AN ACT OF GOD'S MERCY! We could have died in a nuclear holocaust (which still may happen - who knows).
May we cling to Our Lady like little Jacinta. May we asked for the Fatima saints intercession. May we pray the prayer -- JESUS MARY I LOVE YOU- SAVE SOULS! May we say this throughout our days - until we are called home. May we pray all the Fatima reparation prayers. May we trust that God is in charge and know that our time to go home is already determined. May we live as little St. Jacinta - offering and giving our love to God and for the salvation of souls.
God bless all of you and May our Good Mother and Queen pray for us!
