Modernism beliefs, the synthesis of all heresies as defined by the great Pope Saint Pius X, are completely opposite to the message of Fatima.
To quote St. Thomas Aquinas, “The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those in time of moral crisis maintain their neutrality.”
With Fatima, there is a restatement of the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church with an urgent appeal for reparation of sins committed against the Heart of Our Lady. In the past 50 years, modernists have changed the Mass, the Sacraments, the language, the Rosary, titles held by Our Lady, the Calendar of Saints, interpretations of Scripture and Dogma, the Code of Canon Law, The Catechism, The Divine Liturgy of the Hours, the Blessing of Holy Water and more. This revolution is designed to destroy faith in the Church instituted by Jesus Christ. Have they been successful? How many Catholics no longer have the faith? One thing they did not change is the name. They are still called Roman Catholics.
On July 13, 1917 Our Lady told the children that to save souls from going to hell “God wants to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.”
It is very rare to find a Novus Ordo preacher recommending the First Five Saturday's for the reparation of sins against Our Lady. How often do they encourage the daily Rosary? Do they promote the Brown Scapular Our Lady showed Lucy on the day of the 'Miracle of the Sun'? Do they have a statue of the Blessed Mother in their churches? Or do their churches often resemble a Masonic temples confirming a 1930 prophecy? Indeed, Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pius XII, foresaw: “In our churches Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them.”
Sister Lucy further warned us and shocked the Catholic world with some very distressing remarks regarding the hypocrisy in the Church in her conversation with Father Fuentes published in 1957.
“Father, we should not wait for an appeal to the world to come from Rome on the part of the Holy Father, to do penance. Nor should we wait for the call to penance to come from Bishops in our Dioceses, nor from the religious congregations. No! . . . Now it is necessary for each one of us to begin to reform himself spiritually. Each person must not only save his own soul, but also all the souls that God has placed on our path...”
The late Cardinal Silvio Oddi was one of the last conservatives in the Roman Curia.
He worked closely with Archbishop Roncalli (the future John XXIII) when the latter was Nuncio in Paris. Msgr. Oddi was made a Cardinal by Paul VI in 1969, Between 1979 and 1985 he served as Prefect for the Congregation of the Clergy. After his retirement he wrote a book of memoires.
Among many interesting things, he affirms that Vatican II was the fulfillment of the Third Secret of Fatima: a Revolution in the Church.
The prophecy of Fatima was completely defied! It is a lack of sense, I would say, because according to the interpretation that seems to me most worthy of consideration, the Third Secret - which John XXIII and his successors thought inopportune to reveal - is not about a supposed conversion of Russia, still far from becoming a reality, but regards the 'revolution' in the Catholic Church.
From a Council convened to throw light on the beauty and profundity of the Christian mystery by presenting the Church as the spouse of Christ, according to the beautiful words of the same Pope John XXIII, so many innovations were born that they appear to constitute a true internal revolution.
(Silvio Oddi, Il Tenero Mastino di Dio, Rome: Progetto Museali Editore, 1995, p. 217-218).
Fatima, once loved by millions of Catholics around the world, is not known by today’s Novus Ordo Catholics and is defied, despised and hated by the Hierarchy. Oh, what a job the progressivists did for the Devil! Even though Pope Francis canonized the two children May 2017 - he did nothing to promote the message of Fatima at that ceremony or ever.
Lucy was the person chosen by God to foretell the greatest public miracle in History three months in advance. As she had promised, the miracle occurred. Rain drenched 70,000 believers and non-believers alike who, then, observed “the miracle of the sun” at Cova de Iria; afterward they all travelled home bone dry on October 13, 1917.
These miracles were performed not to entertain or scare those who came, but for a reason. The message of Fatima was carried by Lucy, and, if people deny her, they are saying that God selected a liar to foretell the great miracles of October 13, 1917, a dreamer and a story teller as His messenger to spread the devotion of the Blessed Mother and warn us about losing our souls.
Our Lady came to Fatima first to remind us that sinners go to Hell and, then, on June 13, 1917, she told Lucy: “I will take Jacinta and Francisco shortly; but you will stay here for some time to come. Jesus wants to use you to make Me known and loved. He wishes to establish the devotion to My Immaculate Heart throughout the world.”
She concluded with a very firm and definite statement: “I promise salvation to whoever embraces it; these souls will be dear to God, like flowers put by Me to adorn His throne”.
