As a result of the canonization of Francisco and Jacinta, the little saints of Fatima, we are seeing a beautiful torrent of graces from heaven. Years ago, when he was asked why no pope has Consecrated Russia, Father Malachi Martin said that it was because grace was not given to them, essentially because not enough faithful have obeyed Our Lady’s request for rosaries and reparation, especially the First Saturdays. But we have been working, all of us who heed the true message of Fatima, and consequently, we have had the Church’s Canonization of the youngest Fatima saints. Our Lady had already “canonized” them, in her promise that she would take them to heaven soon; but when the pope gave the Church’s approval, I believe that heaven smiled on us all and has shown us mercy in Cardinal Burke’s effort towards fulfilling Our Lady’s request.
Please, more than ever, offer your fasting, penances and rosaries – and Eucharistic adoration if possible! For the success of the very brave initiative of Cardinal Burke and the wonderful Catholics of Voice of the Family. I will not reprint it all here when it is so well done at Lifesite News, but please follow these links if you have not already:
Dear readers, you have endured so many of my posts, bemoaning the tragic state of the hierarchy today, and now, at last, we have begun to see some really hopeful actions! But if we do not support them with our renewed prayers and sacrifices, how will they sustain this brave effort?
Just a few days ago, this pope canonized Saint Francisco Marto and Saint Jacinta Marto of Fatima. He was unable to do it however, without perverting the message of Fatima and even taking a slap at Our Lady afterwards. But in response to this canonization, Heaven has showered graces and we are now blessed with a true miracle, which I believe has come from Jacinta and Francisco themselves. These humble little saints never missed an opportunity to make reparation for sinners, to beg for their conversion and to pray for the Pope.
And now, Cardinal Burke and those who support him, at last are calling for the Pope to obey Our Lady of Fatima – to Consecrate Russia, to promote the First Saturdays of Reparation, to promote the Brown Scapular. This is the miracle of grace we have been praying and offering penance for. Please support this brave initiative with all your hearts and do not fail to thank God and our newest saints of Fatima – Jacinta and Francisco! – for this generous blessing.
What will be the Society’s Response?
We must also pray that Bishop Fellay and the SSPX stand with Cardinal Burke and these others who are calling for the Consecration of Russia and the First Saturdays. For many months, Bishop Fellay and the Society of St. Pius X have been waging a Crusade of Rosaries and Reparation, begging for just this moment. Now, here it is, what will be the Society’s response?
The question of what the Society of St. Pius X will do is not an idle one. Many traditionals have been watching the Argentine pope’s tango with the Society leaders and wondering … This is a crucial moment to see if Bishop Fellay is truly a leader in the spirit of Archbishop Lefebvre! We must pray for them.
What about the other Bishops?
Will they stand idly by? Who is brave enough to stand with Cardinal Burke? After years of failing to defend the faith and failing Our Lady of Fatima as well, will they now heed the call from Our Lady of Fatima? We must pray for these Bishops and pray for our priests!
If you have not already, please read Father Clovis’s remarks at the Rome Life Forum, he is saying quite unmistakably the truth about the anti-church. Readers, this is a crucial turning point, we must not fail now, because if we do, there will be only darkness hereafter as Bergoglio and his wrecking crew finish their seeming demolition. Any Bishop who does not stand with Cardinal Burke is not just failing the faithful, he is failing the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Wouldn’t it be a splendid thing if this pope repented! We must pray! And we must back up our prayers with obedient and generous sacrifices! Pray to Sts. Jacinta and Francisco for help with this, believe me, it really does work!
Now is the time for us to renew our prayers, our acts of reparation with a gratitude we may not have felt earlier!
We close with a couple of Psalms from Prime ifrom the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Save me, O God, by Thy name, and judge me in Thy strength. O God, hear my prayer: harken to the words of my mouth. For strangers have risen up against me; and the mighty have sought after my soul: and they have not set God before their eyes.
For behold God is my helper: and the Lord is the protector of my soul. Turn back the evil upon my enemies; and destroy them in Thy truth. Freely will I sacrifice to thee, and will give praise, O God, to Thy name: because it is good: For Thou hast delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath looked down upon my enemies.
Thou hast blessed Thy land, O Lord, Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people. Thou hast covered all their sins. Thou hast softened all Thine anger; Thou hast turned Thyself from Thy wrathful indignation. Convert Thou us, O God our Savior and turn away Thine anger from us. Wilt Thou be angry with us forever, or wilt Thou stretch out Thy wrath from generation to generation?
Thou wilt turn again, O God and quicken us and Thy people shall rejoice in Thee. Show us O Lord, Thy mercy and grant us Thy salvation. I will harken what the Lord God shall say within me for He will speak peace unto His people; unto His saints and unto them that are converted in heart.
Surely His salvation is nigh unto them that fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. mercy and truth have met; justice and peace have kissed. Truth is sprung from the earth and justice hath looked down from heaven. For the Lord shall put forth His goodness and our land shall yield her fruit. Justice shall walk before him and shall set his footsteps in the way.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
