Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
I should be addressing the message of Our Lady of Lourdes as we approach her feast day soon, February 11th; but with all this talk of Russia…I have to address the messages of Fatima and what Our Lady came to warn us of ---ONE MORE TIME…..
Is the message of Fatima over? Did we see everything Our Lady came to warn us of? Can we still profit from the message of Fatima?
Lucia, the eldest of the seers, was left here on earth to establish devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and as trustee of the third secret. The other two visionaries were taken to Heaven one year after the apparitions.
The first part of the message given to us by Our Lady was the vision of Hell, where, Our Lady told the children, many souls were falling and that there was no one praying for them or making sacrifices for them to avoid such a fate.
The second was Our Lady’s warning that when WW1 ends, there would be another and WORSE World War. If man did not convert, Russia would spread its errors of Communism throughout the world and the world would suffer a great chastisement.
The third part, generally referred to as the third secret, was to be revealed to the world in 1960, Sister Lucy said, when its meaning would be more clear. John XXIII opened the sealed message, read it, and refused to reveal it. Acting in direct contradiction to the command of the Mother of God, he said, “This matter is not for our times.” Naturally, faithful Catholics perturbed over the drastic changes in doctrine and tradition set in motion by Vatican Council II thought the message would be about this crisis. Their suspicions were confirmed by high-ranking Prelates who did read the third secret and affirmed that it revealed both a crisis in the Church of great proportions and other catastrophic events.
Then, in 2000, the secret was supposedly released in full, along with an “official interpretation” by Cardinal Ratzinger and Archbishop Tarcisio Bertone. What was the secret? It was a confused text about a man in white walking up a hill among crosses who was shot and killed, being “officially” interpreted by Ratzinger and Bertone to symbolize the failed attempt on the life of John Paul II in 1981. With this, Ratzinger and Bertone tried to declare Fatima and its third secret a “past event.” They imagined they could close the door on the topic….. We can be told a thousand times that Fatima is over, that the consecration was made, that Russia converted, that there is no crisis in the Church, that there will be no chastisement….but we can see this with our own eyes that this is not so.
If the consecration of Russia is made, she said, then Russia will convert and we will see a time of peace granted to the world. Russia has not converted, and even the most simple-minded person can see that we are not in a time of peace. The world is filled with hate and acts of terrorism, and threatened by nuclear and biological weapons.
If man does not convert and stop offending Our Lord with sins of blasphemy and impurity, then there will be a chastisement of such proportions that nations will disappear from the face of the earth. It is clear mankind has not converted, and the open affronts to Our Lord are more blatant and cruel. In daily news reports, we can read about the escalating moral crisis, with civil and ecclesiastical authorities showing astonishing tolerance for the sins of homosexuality, abortion, sexual education, and so on.
Is the prophecy of Fatima fulfilled or is this just one more lie of the Conciliar Church?
While we still have a little time and I mean little time….promote the wearing of the Brown Scapular amongst friends and family members…promote the praying of the Rosary and give them as gifts with instructions. Encourage people to return to the sacraments…especially the sacrament of Confession. Put aside human respect and think of their souls. We must take the messages of Our Lady seriously because many will die without the sacraments and without warning. SOULS ARE AT STAKE! No time to be shy!
Our Lady of Fatima --- pray for us!
