Pope Pius XII and the Miracle of the Sun

Did you know that Our Lady of Fatima favored Pope Pius XII with his own personal “Miracle of the Sun”? Why do you think that she did this?

Despite betrayal, despite indifference, in the end, her Immaculate Heart will triumph
Despite betrayal, despite indifference, “in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!”

The following is from Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité’s “The Whole Truth About Fatima, Volume III, The Third Secret”.

On October 29, (1950) the statue of the Pilgrim Virgin of Fatima, which had just visited several nations of Asia, arrived at Rome. On the following morning, October 30, 35 Cardinals and over 450 bishops had met in consistory around the Sovereign Pontiff, who for the first time officially informed them of his intention of defining the dogma of the Assumption very soon. At the end of his allocution, Pope Pius XII consulted the successors of the apostles one last time, “is it therefore pleasing to you, Venerable brethren, that we proclaim and solemnly define as a dogma revealed by God, the bodily Assumption of the Blessed virgin Mary into heaven?” After receiving their unanimous assent, the Pope gave thanks.

On the very same day, Monday, October 30, after this solemn decision, while the Madonna of Fatima had stopped for three days in the church of Casaletto, right behind the Vatican gardens on land belonging to the Holy See, on the anniversary of the consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary eight years earlier, it was given to the Holy Father to contemplate the same extraordinary spectacle that 70,000 pilgrims had seen at the Cova da Iria on October 13, 1917. Here is the account written shortly afterwards by Pius XII himself.

“It was October 30, 1950, two days before the day of the solemn definition of the Most Holy Virgin Mary’s Assumption into Heaven, the day which the entire Catholic world was awaiting impatiently. (On this 30th of October), around four o’clock in the afternoon, I took my usual walk in the Vatican gardens, reading and studying various official papers as usual. I went up the esplanade of Our Lady of Lourdes to the top of the hill, in the passage on the right near the walls.

A sign appeared in heaven ...
A sign appeared in heaven …

“At a certain moment, having lifted my eyes above the papers I had in my hand, I was struck by a phenomenon I had never seen before. The sun, which was fairly high, looked like a pale yellow opaque globe completely surrounded by a luminous halo, which nevertheless did not prevent me at all from staring attentively at the sun without the slightest discomfort. A very light cloud was before it.

“The opaque globe began moving outwards, slowly turning over upon itself, and going from left to right and vice versa. But within the globe very strong movements could be seen in all clarity and without interruption. The same phenomenon repeated itself on the following day, October 31. ..”

Then,  Frère Michel tells us, Pope Pius XII recounts that,

“The same phenomenon … took place on November 1, the day of the definition (of the Dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary) and then on November 8, the Octave Day of the Solemnity. Since then, nothing more.” (pages 282-286)

Since these apparitions were only seen by Pope Pius XII, they were strictly personal in nature and for his benefit primarily. Logically, one assumes they were given by Heaven as an encouragement to comply with the Queen of Heaven’s requests for promotion of the First Saturdays of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the Consecration of Russia to be done fully in compliance with Our Lady’s clear instructions. This was never done correctly, many believe this was because of the secret concordat which the Secretary of State, Cardinal Montini, the future Paul VI made with the communist leaders of the former USSR. 

All the errors that have entered into the Church, from Vatican II onwards are due to the blindness of disobedient prelates. Please pray and offer penance for these stubborn, blinded men who are leading so many poor souls into destruction. It is a fact that most Catholics prefer blind obedience to their pontiff, no matter how absurd and unchristian his teachings to the painful work of learning the full truth about Fatima and following the commands of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Immaculate Mother.

The Consecration of Russia will never be accomplished until enough Catholics repent their indifference and worldliness, be re-converted to the Faith and make reparation. We must  pray for the Pope and make reparation for him, and offer many rosaries for him, so that we may all repent, be converted and saved. The poor pope, blinded by the Lord of the World, cannot help us or even help himself. He needs our prayers; all the hierarchy needs our prayers and sacrifices. And we all must pray every day for Our Lady to grant the Pope and Bishops the grace to repent and obey her commands to Consecrate Russia.

Now, as never before, the Church needs generous souls with a penitential spirit to make of all their actions, indeed their very lives, an oblation of penance in reparation for our own sins, the sins of our families, and especially the sins of the Church. Nothing at all can be accomplished without our sacrifices united to, and offered through, the Immaculata.

Now, in this last year before the 100th anniversary of the Fatima apparitions of 1917, is the time to pray the Rosary and beseech Heaven for mercy on this poor world.

May we suggest:

  1. He actually saw it on four different occasions in 1950.
    He became bishop on the 13th of May 1917 and he was the first pope reading the third secret of Fatima.

    • Thank you, Basto!
      Yes, my post does say 4 visions, on October 30 (the day Pius XII announced the Definition of the Assumption) and 31 (the Vigil of the Proclamation), and on November 1 (the Day of the Proclamation) and November 8 (the Octave of the Proclamation). Thus, Our Lady was very pleased!
      And Sister Pasqualina (Holy Father’s housekeeper) tells us that on the day of the Proclamation of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin,
      “A deep blue sky extended above the cupola of Saint Peter’s. Beside the sun one could also see the crescent of the moon, just above the cross of the cupola! How was this possible? The others saw it and were astonished: ‘Who is this… fair as the moon, beautiful as the sun…!’ we recite on Prime of that day. Already it was most extraordinary that the day was so warm and so clear, and this crescent of the moon over the cupola of Michelangelo at this hour of the feast created the effect of a wonderful symbol.”
      Basto, I agree that he read the secret, although Frère Michel says he did not read it. I believe he read it, but due to his indecisiveness, refused to act on it. Our Lady gave him so much encouragement, and he obviously loved her and wished to honor her, but could not bring himself to go against the already entrenched forces in the Vatican who had become enthralled with the Lord of the World.
      That is a very sad thing.
      Some say that the vision of the Sun changing course was a warning against the Church changing course, and Pius XII’s words about “a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul”.
      Under Bergoglio, we certainly see that the day has come when “the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God.”
      How long will the Lord hold back His strong arm of justice, do you think?

  2. God’s time moves differently than ours Evensong, but it feels like we’ve arrived to the breaking point, this present situation can’t go much further on, I believe.

    Last week there was an important event that almost nobody noticed around the world. The head of Ukrainian Catholics has consecrated Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and offered to the Patriarch of Lisbon an eastern icon of Our Lady of Fatima made in the occupied region of Donetsk.

    • Dear Basto, thank you so much for your comments and for the link to his Beatitude’s Consecration of Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I did post the article from the UGCC. It was interesting that I had attempted to schedule the post for today, but by some strange glitch, it posted immediately yesterday! I do not like to post two times in one day, because it irritates the kind people who link to my newest posts.

      But this time, I was delighted to see the news of the good Catholics of Ukraine consecrating their country to Our Lady.
      Basto, you know that Our Lady has a special place in her Immaculate Heart for the faithful Catholics of Ukraine, who have suffered so much for their faith and still suffer greatly.

      I hope that readers will support the Catholics of Ukraine with their prayers and sacrifices!

  3. You’re welcome Evensong, this blog is very pleasant.

    I would advise anyone who believes in Fatima to keep an eye in the Ukraine, meaning the Catholics of Ukraine, which most of them belong to the fast growing Greek Catholic Church. At the present moment, they are the biggest stone in the shoes of those who are promoting the “culture of encounter” between the Roman Catholic Church and the schismatic Russian Orthodox Church, instead of the foretold “conversion of Russia”. These Eastern Rite Catholics are, in my opinion, the best sample of what the “conversion of Russia” should look like. A different rite, a different liturgical tradition, but the same Pontiff, the same faith, the same dogmas.

    The Uniate Church of Ukraine (as they are called around there in a negative way) is the second-largest particular church in the Catholic Church after the Latin Church, even so, in matters of status, their primate is only an Archbishop-Major and not a Patriarch as he should be, in comparison with other primates of particular catholic churches incomparable smaller. The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church didn’t become yet an officially recognized Patriarchal Church, as they wish and deserve, exactly for the same reason that the word “Russia” has been avoided in the papal attempts to consecrate that nation. To not upset Russia! But maybe, and this is just my opinion, God could have an important role for them in the final “triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary”, who knows?

    That possibility is a possible interpretation for the mysterious words of Malachi Martin about the “involvement” of Kiev “in the final solution”. But how can we know that without going a little bit further “afield into papal secrets”?

    • Thank you.
      We are preparing to post more on the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church soon, also on the Balamand Agreement with which the conciliar Vatican essentially betrayed these good Catholics.

      I do not have time to screen the you tube video you sent, so recommend readers check out your blog, Odogmadafe.wordpress.com. The video of His Beatitude Sviastoslav is likely posted there. Since it is in Portuguese, a translation app is necessary. Also, the video is on You Tube, search under his name.

      May Our Lady keep you close to her Immaculate Heart,
