About Return to Fatima and the author, evensong


This is a traditional Catholic blog, for the purpose of promoting the truth about the message of Our Lady of Fatima and its urgent relevance for our time. The term “Traditional Catholic” used at this site means simply Roman Catholic, adhering to the doctrine and practices of the Roman Catholic faith as it was believed and observed before the Second Vatican Council. This site supports the priests of the Society of St. Pius X founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. We firmly believe that Msgr. Lefebvre  will, in a saner time, be recognised as the saint who kept the Catholic faith alive in the darkest of times through his unfailing humility and obedience to the true Head of the Church, our Lord Jesus Christ.

I have reservations about the ongoing “dialogue” between the Society and the Bergoglian Vatican.  I do not believe that Pope Francis is  a servant of our Lord Jesus Christ.  He should be avoided until such time as he repents and converts to the faith. I fear that any agreement with the Bergoglian Vatican will place the Society of St. Pius X in jeopardy, and thus, endanger the survival of the Mass itself. 

It is however, quite possible that this is what must happen for Catholics to realize at last that they are “no longer in Rome”,  as the prophesy of St. John Bosco foretold. Sister Lucia told Father Fuentes that  “God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. ”  Note that she does not mention the Mass.

If you are new to our blog, and would like to understand what we are about, I’ve a short lists of posts which readers have suggested as most helpful to them.

The Message of Fatima“.
The Centenary of Fatima and the Passion of the Church“,
Grace Has Fled

Cold Comfort in the Time of Dry Wood.”

If anyone would like to add to the list, please let me know.

Our Policy

Return to Fatima does not seek or accept donations from readers. We solely rely on word of mouth, that is,  reader’s recommendations in order to spread our message.  Return to Fatima is rather singlemindedly focused on the message of Fatima; therefore we don’t normally post comments promoting  apparitions, devotions and prophecies that are unrelated.

Why am I doing this?

I believe that the Message Our Lady of the Rosary brought to us at Fatima, if understood properly holds the key to understanding the current crisis and the Apocalypse as Sister Lucia of Fatima attempted to explain to the faithful. She was silenced and her message was suppressed, misinterpreted and co-opted to serve the ancient enemy. This enemy has flooded the world with false apparitions, many of which are pious frauds, that is, they contain nothing counter to the faith, but simply serve to smother the Fatima Message with platitudes to distract from and dilute the true message.

It is Fatima alone that holds the key to your salvation in this crisis. Without it, you may survive spiritually, since God’s mercy is unfathomable and He saves whomever He wills, but why would you risk it, when He offers you the simple and secure way of the Immaculata? Do you really think it wise to spurn this merciful path He offers you?

 Another goal is to counter some of the errors about Fatima, such as that “the chastisement is easing… and bound to fall apart eventually”, and that “just when all seems lost… will be the happy beginning of the complete restoration”. Those assertions which have achieved widespread support among the faithful are deceptive because they use partial truths in order to obscure the full truth, which is that Our Lady repeatedly warned that if her requests were not heeded a severe chastisement was in store for all mankind.

It is a shame that this is being done by those in whom so many have trusted. The full truth is that Our Lady’s requests have not been obeyed and the situation is extremely dire. If you were standing on the shore and saw the tide withdraw for a full mile out, you would not placidly remark, “Well, the tide goes and the tide comes, and in the end, her Immaculate Heart will triumph”.

Yes, “her Immaculate Heart will triumph in the end”, but before then, there is much that we must do. We are here for a reason. Each of us must work for our own soul and for the souls entrusted to us. False optimism misleads many and this is such a shame.

To counteract this prevailing error, I have attempted in this blog to explain:
1. What Our Lady requested.
2. That her requests have not been heeded.
3. What we, the faithful must do to comply.
4. What is in store for us at this late date.

Who am I?

I am an old woman with her rosary, thanks be to God.

Why am I anonymous, and what am I hiding?
I do not post my real name out of respect for friends and family members who regret that I have begun this risky endeavor. I regret it too, but at this point, must continue until I finish this task or become unable to complete it.

As far as hiding something, I wish it were possible, but regrettably my faults are here on display for all to see. I cannot hide them.

For comments, suggestions and criticism, we have a comment box beneath most posts.

    I have been reading past posts on your site and came across the links to the books at archive.org – The Whole Truth about Fatima. I finished the first part and am on the second one. I am so very thankful for coming across these links. Thank you for letting readers know about them. I find myself like Jacinta, so worried that no one is thinking about hell and the reality of it, and that so many go there. I feel like I can’t even bring up my fear of hell to our parish priest – NO one talks about it. I am struck by the visionaries words and the reality of hell and then feel so crazy when the world around me doesn’t seem to care? Any thoughts? Thank you and God bless you.

    • Dana, priests who were ordained after Vatican II are often, but not always, deficient in their theology and shockingly, and even deficient in their faith. Although I attend SSPX, my diocesan Bishop’s magazine did an article on “teaching children about the Mass” that advised parents to explain the Mass thusly: Mass is like visiting friends, we greet them, share stories, share a meal, then say our goodbyes. Honestly!
      Dana, the world around us truly does not care. Grace has fled.

      The most urgent need is for each of us to follow the program offered us by the Immaculata, which I’ve posted about extensively.
      If each of us devoted as much time as possible to simply drawing nearer to Our Lady,
      * 15 minutes with her quietly each day
      * daily Rosary
      * strive to advance our Total Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through her Immaculate Heart,
      * living our brown scapular (not simply wearing it)
      * offer up our daily duties in a spirit of loving reparation for sins against the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts,
      * fast
      * alms according to our ability

      With this simple program, we find the people we meet becoming more open to our message. Opportunities will present themselves. We need not force it, but only allow space for Our Lady to work.

      In time, we learn to become the broom in her hands, to do with as she wills.
      God bless and Mary keep you, dear,

        I very much appreciate your response and will take it to heart. Thank you again. I so look forward to your posts and learn so much from them. Peace to you.. Dana

    Thank you for all you are doing to promote, clarify and encourage the Fatima message! What else can we do to restore the Seat of Peter to the rightful pontiff?

    • Cynthia, regarding your question, “What else can we do to restore the Seat of Peter to the rightful pontiff?”:
      Have you read my page The Message of Fatima” ?
      If I have expressed it correctly, after reading it the answer should be clear to you.
      Additionally, you must read the post, The Angel of Fatima, which explains the penance (sacrifice) which God demands of us at this time.
      If it still is not clear, I promise to respond with more precision. In fact, it may be time for me to post on this again.
      In any event, please read those two pages and let me know what you think.
      I appreciate that you have taken the time to ask me. Very few do so.
      May Our Lord bless you and may Our Lady keep you close,

    God bless you, Evensong. I see you are concentrating on Fatima, and I understand your desire not to be commenting on this and that, but do you have anything you would like to share regarding Garabandal? Didn’t Padre Pio say our Blessed Mother appeared there? Many thanks.

    • Mr. Jacobs, I have revised this page and so I should also revise my reply to you. The quote I originally replied with now reads,

      “Of these, Fatima is the Queen and culmination of them all; and the others prepared us for the message of Fatima and help us understand the importance of complying with Our Lady of Fatima’s requests. It is a grievous mistake to seek beyond what Our Lady herself has given us at Fatima and Akita. Akita was given only because the Vatican refused to obey the Blessed Virgin’s requests. It is a stern warning against disobeying Our Lady.

      I must warn you strongly to avoid any prophecy after Fatima except Akita. In order to diminish and obscure the essential truth of Fatima, Lucifer has many times distracted people, and even fooled Popes and some holy persons with false apparitions.

      Our Lady gave us the complete truth that we need at Fatima. Akita simply reinforces the same message. There is no other. Readers write me to contest this and I refuse to “dialogue” about it. Fatima is complete. It is a great insult to Our Lady to keep looking for other “messages”, and it endangers many souls.”

      Mr. Jacobs, I am not wise enough or strong enough to combat all the errors which satan is using to draw souls away from the Immaculate Heart of Mary by means of this deluge of false prophecies. All I can do is warn you and all others who ask, Please do not be fooled, Let yourself be led by the Immaculata.”

      Very soon, those who have not turned to her, and consecrated themselves to our Lord Jesus Christ through her Immaculate Heart, may find themselves unable to do so.

      I beg you all, turn aside from any other distraction, no matter how pious you now believe it to be, and seek her guidance, ask her help to serve Our Lord through her Immaculate Heart. She will not fail you!

      We must stop offending her!

    My dear, I am also an old woman with her rosary, clinging to it and Our Sorrowful and Immaculate Mother for dear life! Prayers for your recovery ascending on high…

  5. Linda says:

    God bless you for speaking the truth about the full message of Fatima!
    I have been studying Fatima for over 25 years and have seen how so many Fatima advocates have twisted the truth. I look to the prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success for the restoration of our Church and Our Lady’s Triumph once Russia is consecrated in the proper formula!
    Hope your health improves. God bless.

    • Thank you so much for your kindness.
      You are right about so many false Fatima “advocates” – they have the temerity to use Our Lady to promote themselves and delude themselves that because it appears they get away with it, that God approves of them. We shall see …
      God bless you dear, and may Our Lady keep you close.
