In her apparition of June 13, 1917, Our Lady of the Rosary confided her intentions to Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia.
When Lucia told her, ‘I would like to ask You to take us to Heaven.’, Our Lady responded gently,
‘Yes, I will take Jacinta and Francisco soon, but you, Lucia, are to stay here some time longer. Jesus wishes to make use of you in order to make Me known and loved. He wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. To whoever embraces this devotion, I promise salvation; those souls will be cherished by God, as flowers placed by Me to adorn His throne.’
‘Am I to stay here alone?’ I asked painfully.
‘No, My daughter. Are you suffering a great deal? Do not lose heart, I will never forsake you! My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.’
‘It was at the moment when She pronounced those last words that She opened Her hands and communicated to us, for the second time, the reflection of that immense light. In it we saw ourselves as submerged in God. Jacinta and Francisco appeared to be in the part of that light which elevated itself to Heaven, and I in the part which spread itself on the earth.
In the palm of the right hand of Our Lady there was a Heart, surrounded by thorns which seemed to pierce it. We understood that it was the Immaculate Heart of Mary, outraged by the sins of humanity, which demanded reparation.’
Of this apparition, Lucia wrote in her memoirs,
‘It seems to me that on that day, that reflection of light had as a principal goal to instill in us a knowledge and a special love towards the Immaculate Heart of Mary; in the same way as the other two times, it had that same goal, but with respect to God and to the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity. Since that day, we felt in our hearts a more ardent love for the Immaculate Heart of Mary’.
The period of time after 1917 was a series of setbacks; although the Popes and Bishops recognized Fatima and appeared to honor Our Lady of Fatima, the corruption in the Church continued and devotion to the true message of Fatima was never promoted. Pope Benedict XV, who had succeeded St. Pius X, dismantled his Anti-Modernist structures including the offices of the Sodalitium Pianum that were finally closed down altogether in 1921. Thus, modernism began its resurgence in the seminaries and universities, preparing the way for those “Periti” who would engineer the the takeover of the Second Vatican Council, which they themselves called the Revolution of 1789 in the Church.
Benedict was followed by Pius XI, a brilliant intellectual and considered thoroughly orthodox in matters of the faith. However, his secular policies, resulting from the influence of his Masonic Secretary of State Gasparri, brought much harm to the Church. He effectively destroyed Catholic political parties, entered into various concordats, and in 1929 he ceded the Papal States to Italy in exchange for a large sum of money, with which the Vatican then entered the ranks of international bankers. Pius XI’s Secretary of State, Gasparri also engineered a treaty in Mexico which effectively disarmed the Cristeros although the persecution of Mexican Catholics continued for years afterwards. It is most likely that it is these events, the Vatican’s entrance into Masonic controlled international banking (with all the corruption and intrigue that entails)and its betrayal of Catholic faithful, that prompted Our Lady’s return to Sister Lucia again.
On June 13, 1929, the Blessed Virgin appeared to Sister Lucia, as she had promised 12 years before. The Vision itself speaks volumes but we shall not attempt to cover it here. Instead, here are Our Lady’s words, to Sister Lucia and to us all:
“The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father to make, and to order that in union with Him and at the same time, all the Bishops of the world make the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, promising to convert it because of this day of prayer and worldwide reparation.”
Our Lady did not make this request in her name, but stated clearly, “God asks the Holy Father to…” So, in this appearance twelve years after the series of visions in 1917, and after the Church had approved of the visions and devotion, Our Lady returned, this time accompanied by this stunning tableau of the Most Holy Trinity. And yet 86 years later, this simple request of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Most Holy Trinity has not been complied with. Instead, we have today a Pope who is closely allied with the most detestable anti-Christian powers in the world.
It appears that we are farther than ever from the Pope’s obedience to Our Lady of Fatima, but we already know how this will end. After His Mother and Apostles laid Him in the tomb, we had the Resurrection, the Ascension and Pentecost. When Bergoglio and Kasper have had their brief triumph, we will have the final cleansing and the glorious triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Queen and our Mother which will usher in the reign of Jesus Christ the King. There will be a period of peace.
The Chastisement has been ongoing since at least the time of World War II, when America became the first country in the world to use a nuclear bomb. It accelerated with Vatican II and has been picking up speed ever since, with scientism and technology, and public secular (Godless) education undermining and destroying the faith in all countries and contraception, abortion, euthanasia, divorce, sodomy, in vitro fertilization, genetic manipulation, nuclear and biological warfare and innumerable other atrocities gaining ground.
In a previous post, I described a vision given to Sister Lucia in 1944:
“I felt my spirit inundated by a mystery of light that is God and in Him I saw and heard: the point of a lance like a flame that is detached, touches the axis of the earth, and it trembles: mountains, cities, towns and villages with their inhabitants are buried. The sea, the rivers, the clouds, exceed their boundaries, inundating and dragging with them, in a vortex, houses and people in a number that cannot be counted. It is the purification of the world from the sin in which it is immersed. Hatred, ambition, provoke the destructive war. After I felt my racing heart, in my spirit a soft voice said: ‘In time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. In eternity, Heaven!’ This word ‘Heaven’ filled my heart with peace and happiness in such a way that, almost without being aware of it, I kept repeating to myself for a long time: Heaven, Heaven.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima)
Catholic prophecy supports this vision and we will explore some of it soon. Actions have consequences and sins especially have a way of catching up with us. Although sometimes it can seem as though our Heavenly Father withholds His justice with an infinite patience, it is becoming evident each day that the Lord of this World is exceedingly impatient to push his agenda. Indeed, the devil is making headway in every area of the world and even throughout the Holy Catholic Church. The Synod this October may prove to be a tipping point.
God’s justice, which seems so long in coming, will be sudden and severe. But His mercy never fails. The mercy of God our Father is not the perverse false mercy of Bergoglio and Kasper, but if we, His children seek His will and not our own, we may be certain of His generous mercy and of life everlasting with Him. Our Lord has given us His Sacred Heart and entrusted us to His Immaculate Mother, what more can we ask? Our Mother has assured us through Sister Lucia that there is nothing that she will not grant us through means of the Rosary. With Our Lady’s Rosary we will save our souls and those souls entrusted to us. In the end, her Immaculate Heart will triumph.
† Sweet Heart of Mary, be our salvation!
† Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come!
~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin; Give me strength against thine enemies!
