At Pontevedra, 1925

Today, we follow up on our earlier post about the words of Our Lady of  Fatima. In that post, “Words, just words“, we noted that,

On her second visit (June 13, 1917), Our Lady told the little shepherds,

“Jesus wishes to make use of you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.” …  I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the path that leads you to God.” …  Our Lady extended her right hand and in front of her palm was a heart encircled by thorns which pierced it. In Lúcia’s words, “We understood that this was the Immaculate Heart of Mary outraged by the sins of humanity and seeking reparation.”

And then, the following month, after showing them the  the vision of Hell, Our Lady said:

You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish throughout the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I request, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.  The war is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse war will break out in the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that God gives you, that He is going to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, famine, and persecutions against the Church and of the Holy Father.

To prevent this I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.

If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecution of the Church; the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, she will be converted, and some time of peace will be given to the world.”

Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité , in Volume II of the Whole Truth About Fatima quotes Sister Lúcia of Fatima’s recollection (given in the third person):

“On December 10, 1925, the Most Holy Virgin appeared to her, and by Her side, elevated on a luminous cloud, was the Child Jesus. The Most Holy Virgin rested Her hand on her shoulder, and as She did so, She showed her a heart encircled by thorns, which She was holding in Her other hand.

At the same time, the Child said: “Have compassion on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother, covered with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce It at every moment, and there is no one to make an act of reparation to remove them.”

Then the Most Holy Virgin said: “Look My daughter, at My Heart, surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce Me at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console Me and announce in My name that I promise to assist at the moment of death, with all the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep Me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to Me.”

In this revelation, Our Lady of the Rosary as Mediatrix of Graces,  promises the supremely valuable gift of God’s grace, that is, the gift of final perseverance, without which other gifts are worthless, “For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul?” (Matt 16, 26).

Frère Michel continues, “the first fruit of the Communion of Reparation is the salvation of the one practicing it. Let us place no limits on the divine mercy, but keep to the letter of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s promise: whoever fulfills all the conditions set down can be sure of obtaining at the moment of death at least – and this even after miserable lapses back into a state of grave sin – the graces necessary to obtain the pardon of God, and to be preserved from eternal chastisement.”

The devotion of First Saturdays was not at all new, but was given a new emphasis by the Blessed Virgin. Previously, there had existed the practice of devoting Saturdays to Mary. For instance, “The Fifteen Saturdays in honor of the Most Holy Rosary”, a popular devotion of the Rosary Confraternities to receive the Sacraments and perform pious works on each of fifteen consecutive Saturdays in honor of the Fifteen  Mysteries of Our Lady’s Rosary. Pope Leo XIII enriched this devotion with generous plenary indulgences.

My God, my God, why?

“Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15,13

With His first Word from the Cross, Our Lord Jesus Christ prayed “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”. Thus, He begins His crucifixion emphasizing the merciful aspect of God, our Heavenly Father. In the second Word, He rewarded Dismas, the repentant thief. Then, with the third Word, He entrusted His Mother to John, and thus to us, and entrusts us to her. We take note that this Word alone binds every follower of Christ to defend the honor of the most Blessed Virgin Mary. Think for yourselves the dismal situation today, in this bitter passion of the Church.

After these first three Words, comes the fourth, which breaks upon us like a storm at dawn, when the sun’s light is withdrawn and the lightning illumines the torrents of rain and the wind-whipped trees.

“My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?”

At this very hour, at this very Word, the darkness of the eclipse began to ease. In Father Groenings’ words, it “marked a turning point in which error’s shadow was to recede before truth, and the day of salvation was to begin.

My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?

How are we to understand such a complaint? Is Christ doubting His Father? Modernists have implied such. What is the truth?

In the first place, we note that while His first Word from the Cross was from the Son of God to His  Father, this fourth Word is from Christ the Son of Man to God. Again, we turn to Father Groenings:

The abandonment by God of Christ’s human nature was not a separation of the latter from the second Person of God. For the union of the second Person of the Godhead with Christ’s human nature was and is inseparable. If this union had been dissolved at the death of Christ, then not God, but a mere man would have died for us, and our redemption would not be accomplished.

Neither was the abandonment by God of the human nature in Christ a withdrawal of grace. On the contrary, the plenitude of grace at all times existing in Christ effected that fortitude which bore Him up on the cross as it had done in the Garden of Olives. The abandonment, finally, did not consist in depriving the soul of Christ for a time of the direct vision of God. Christ rather complained, not only that God refused to preserve His human nature from impending death, but also that He abandoned it to suffering without the least solace whatever.

For His human nature might have been relieved in a twofold way;

First, through a direct action on all that contributed to make it suffer: sparing Him the sensible pain of  the thorns, the nails and the scourges, and the interior pain of the mockery and humiliations of the crucifixion.

Secondly, God could have filled the soul of Christ with such consolation that He would not have felt external pain. This was done for many of the martyrs, who rejoiced even as they endured torture for Christ.

However, nothing of the kind happened, On the contrary, God abandoned the soul of Christ to repugnance, to fear, to sadness and to the excruciating knowledge that His Passion would be useless to so many human beings. God even allowed Satan whose hour was at hand, to use this time of sufferings to cruelly torture the Soul of Christ. Indeed, the only assistance God gave was to allow Christ’s human nature  the strength  to sustain it in order to prolong His suffering.

This was the object and the cause of Christ’s plaintive reproach. And we know that  Christ gave the full consent of His Will to this abandonment.

Fatima, Akita and the Chastisement, II

Please, if you haven’t already, be sure to read Dr. Roberto de Mattei’s article on Rorate Caeli here..
It is an excellent synopsis of  the Message of Fatima placed within its historical context. Hopefully, many will read it, and I also will post more soon.

As requested, a repost::

In our previous post, we briefly outlined the Blessed Virgin Mary’s appearances at Fatima on October 13, 1917 and at Akita on October 13, 1973. Today we consider the meanings behind the rich symbols of these two visits from the Queen of Heaven.

Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?
. Grant that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin, give me strength against thy enemies!

The Rosary, Foremost Message of Fatima and Akita

In both, our Blessed Mother called us to the Rosary. In fact, at Fatima, she identified herself as Our Lady of the Rosary, the name by which she calls her children to pray to her. And at each visit to Fatima, she requested the daily Rosary. In her last appearance at Akita, Oct. 13, 1973, Our Lady stressed the importance of the Rosary, saying,

“The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests.”

Dear Readers, this is urgent! Never before have we needed the Rosary as we do now – and yet never before has the Church been so resistant. False devotions, distractions, have been allowed to detract from the Rosary. For your salvation and the salvation of those entrusted to you:

Please commit to Our Lady right now, to pray the traditional Rosary, that is the Rosary as it existed when she requested it at Fatima and Akita, and as she confirmed to us with the beautiful visions of the little shepherds of Fatima on October 13, 1917. That is,  the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries plus the Fatima Decade Prayer.

Each day, live and pray all these mysteries of Our Lady’s Rosary. Do not get sidetracked by other devotions, no matter how much appeal they may have for you. Her children must serve her by obedience!

I love the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but if obligations cause me to cut back some devotions, I omit a bit of this beautiful Office, rather than cut back on my quiet time with Our Lady or her Rosary. For that is truly our lifeline to Mary, by which she channels grace and healing to this poor suffering world. Despite what Pope Francis tells us, the greatest evil is not inequality, it is sin. Yes, there is no greater evil than sin.

Poverty, pain, horrid death, no, none of these is the true evil, for sin is the origin of all suffering. Sin alone is the greatest evil. The Immaculata’s active purity – for it is not some passive quality – some lack, no,  the Purity of the Immaculata is the most powerful force against sin and suffering.  God has decreed that it is through her Immaculate Heart that we receive the graces essential for our salvation, for she is mediatrix of all graces. The modernist Church rejects this truth to its own damnation.

By our Rosaries, we combat the filth invading the Church. This filth is not only the human, physical filth of the unnatural lusts consuming these poor sick priests and prelates, it is the spiritual filth of their perverted faith, for they have replaced the clear, beautiful faith given us by our Savior Jesus Christ, with the false faith of Judas, Luther and the other servants of Satan, the implacable enemies of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church.

Obedience, the Rosary and the Passion of the Church

Rediscovering Obedience

“He was wounded for our iniquities … bruised for our sins: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His bruises we are healed.”

Among the many things to love about the rosary, is the way the various mysteries interconnect and thereby reinforce and enrich each other. In general, the Joyful Mysteries emphasize the virtue of obedience. This obedience is reinforced by the Sorrowful Mysteries. Mary’s “Be it done unto me according to thy word”, in the Annunciation is echoed by Christ’s, “Yet not My will, but Thine be done.” in the Agony in the Garden. And then the Glorious Mysteries reveal the joyful glory of our heavenly reward, which follows this obedience and is eternal!

St. Augustine tells us, “And thus also it was that the knot of Eve’s disobedience was loosed by the obedience of Mary. For what the virgin Eve had bound fast through unbelief, this did the virgin Mary set free through faith” (Apology, Book II, Chapter XII).

Regarding obedience, St. John Bosco was given a horrible vision of Hell in which his guide told him that the most serious sin causing people to be damned in Hell is the sin of disobedience. He explained that while pride is the root of sin, its practical application is disobedience, in other words, prideful disobedience causes the most people to fall from grace and be doomed to Hell. And so  between St. Augustine and St. John Bosco, we see that a key to disobedience is the refusal of faith. Had Eve accepted the virtue of faith offered to her, she would not have disobeyed. There is a lesson here for disobedient prelates, but I digress…

St. John tells us in his First Epistle, Chapter Two, “For all that is in the world, is the concupiscence of the flesh, and the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life, which is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the concupiscence thereof: but he that doth the will of God, abideth for ever.” Now, it has always been the teaching of the Church, from the earliest times that the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience counteract these sins.

Although these counsels are vowed by those in the consecrated life, we of the lay faithful are urged to practice them according to our state. The lust of the flesh can thereby be counteracted by modesty and faithfulness to one’s spouse, the lust of the eyes, that is greed and consumerism can be counteracted by moderation, humility and self-denial such as fasting and abstaining. But it is with our obedience, which defeats pride, that we progress the best, no matter our state in life. The very best teacher of obedience is Mary, Our Mother.

Words, just words

PART I

The Words of the Virgin

Let’s return for a moment to the words of the Blessed Virgin at Fatima. We’ll let this post be the start and reference for a discussion about what Our Lady actually said and meant at Fatima one hundred years ago. Today, not much comment, just the words Our Lady of the Rosary used in imparting her message one hundred years ago.

May 13, 1917

Our Lady to the three shepherd children, “Do not fear! I will do you no harm.”   Then, in reply to Lucia’s question: I am of Heaven.” Thus she recalls to us her prerogative as The Immaculate Conception, by which she is uniquely privileged to claim, “I am of Heaven“.

To Lucia’s question, Shall I go to Heaven too? “Yes, you will.” And Jacinta? “She will go also.” And Francisco? “He will go too, but he must say many rosaries.”

Lucia then asked if  two young girls she knew who had died recently had gone to heaven. The beautiful Lady answered of the first girl, Maria das Neves, Yes, she is.” But of the second, known to us only as Amelia, the Lady said, “She shall be in purgatory until the end of the world.”  [We will address this issue later.]

To Lucia’s inquiry, “What does Your Grace want of me?” The Lady replied,

“I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at this same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want. Afterwards, I will return here yet a seventh time.”

“Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?”

Francisco, Jacinta and Lucia answered, “Yes, we are willing!” Our Lady then told them, “Then you are going to have much to suffer, but the grace of God will be your comfort.”

Lucia tells us that as Our Lady said those last words, she spread her hands communicating to us … a light so intense … its rays penetrated our hearts and the innermost depths of our souls making us see ourselves in God, Who was that Light.” The children then, moved by an inner impulse, knelt down and prayed, “O Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee!. My God, my God, I love Thee in the most Blessed Sacrament!”

The Lady then said, “Pray the Rosary every day, in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war.”

 June 13, 1917

Lucia asked as she did the first time, “What does Your Grace want of me?”  The Lady replied,

“I wish you to come here on the 13th of next month, to pray the Rosary each day, and to learn how to read. Later, I will tell you what I want.”

When Lucia asked her about curing a sick person, Our Lady answered, “If he is converted, he will be cured during the year.”

Lucia then bravely said, “I would like to ask you to take us to Heaven.”

“Yes, I will take Jacinta and Francisco soon. But you are to stay here some time longer. Jesus wishes to make use of you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne.”

“Am I to stay here alone?”

“No, my daughter. Are you suffering a great deal? Don’t lose heart. I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the path that leads you to God.”

Lucia explains that as Our Lady said this, she once again communicated that immense Light to them. Jacinta and Francisco were in the portion which went up to Heaven and Lucia remained in the portion spread out on earth. But this time, Our Lady extended her right hand and in front of her palm was a heart encircled by thorns which pierced it. In Lucia’s words, “We understood that this was the Immaculate Heart of Mary outraged by the sins of humanity and seeking reparation.”

Kafka’s Dilemma

There is a passage in Kafka’s diary where he relates a time of indecision, wherein he spent a couple of hours (if I recall correctly) at a street corner. He would take a hesitant step or two, then retreat after considering the various outcomes; then head in another direction, only to retreat from that too, after considering what may happen. He never did do as he had originally intended.

I thought of Kafka’s quintessential example of modern neurosis when someone commented, “You seem to be trying to scare people into doing penance with the prospect of earthquakes. What if no further catastrophes happen? Won’t they then just turn away from the message of Fatima entirely?”

If I were to heed that reader’s logic, there would be no more posts. In fact, that nearly happened over the recent episode of someone posting my articles on their site in order to drum up contributions for themselves. I felt it was disrespectful to Our Lady, but then was reminded to stick to our original goal:  to remind readers of the message of Our Lady of Fatima. What others do should not concern me.

But now, we see earthquakes and we must ask ourselves what is the meaning of this seismic activity. Is God threatening us? Or is He calling us to repentance? I do not believe God threatens us. Warns us, yes, most certainly. But that is done with infinite love for us. The earthquakes are a merciful way to recall us to the correct path, to serve Him so that we might be happy with Him in heaven. When mankind turns from Him, He must get our attention, to recall us to Him. What is really most fearful is God’s silence – that means He is leaving us to proceed to our damnation. But He is showing us with these lesser chastisements, that He still offers us His mercy, if we but hear His voice and return…

At the close of yesterday’s post I wrote,

“I am not claiming that the world is about to end. But simply stating that the Church can only be cleansed of this current aberration by God’s help. No amount of secular activity will achieve the necessary cleansing. And Sacred Scripture is chock filled with evidence of God’s solution to cleansing the Temple. If we have learned anything from the past, it should be to make ready our souls, for it is never too late to turn to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Our Mother.”

The Mystery of La Salette

“Alas, the bishops who take this message as addressed to themselves, have become the enemies of this merciful message. They are acting like the High Priests who condemned Our Divine Saviour to death.”

“Well, my children, you will pass this on to all my people.”

It has been 170 years since that sunny day on La Salette when the two shepherd children saw the beautiful Lady weeping. The Lady’s sad and gentle manner contrasted sharply with the severity of her warning. This contrast was also reflected in the Church’s response: Although Blessed Pope Pius IX ordered the Bishop of Grenoble to construct a beautiful church on the spot of the apparitions and Pope Leo XIII crowned a statue of the Virgin of La Salette and gave the Sanctuary the title of Basilica, still many Bishops and clerics furiously opposed the message of La Salette and persecuted the seers unjustly.

Bishops refused absolution to pilgrims to the shrine, attacked Melanie as “unbalanced”, even insane and eventually succeeded in repressing the message. To this day, Catholics are forbidden to discuss the message. There are still many faithful Catholics who believe the disparaging remarks about the message of La Salette, claiming that Melanie distorted her later writings, contaminating the message of La Salette with false apocalyptic visions. Their motto is the same as the unfaithful Bishops who fought Melanie in her lifetime, “La Salette, yes! Melanie, no!”

Thus, they imply that Our Lady made an error in judgment when she chose to appear to Melanie; that Our Lady entrusted Melanie with a secret, not realizing that Melanie was “deranged”. We see this same arrogance in the modernist prelates who implied similarly that Sister Lucia was somehow mistaken in her understanding of the revelation Our Lady entrusted to her. By denigrating the messenger, whether Melanie or Lucia, they impugn Our Lady indirectly, and cast the message into doubt.

Restating the obvious, again

Due to the controversy which took too much of my time, I decided to take a day or two to think things over. The following is my carefully and prayerfully reconsidered position. I will state the basics and follow with a brief discussion.

You’re Catholic and you think that? Really?

 

July 13, 1917, Our Lady of Fatima after showing the children a terrifying view of hell, warned that if mankind did not heed her warnings much suffering would ensue:

“To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, and she will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world..”

Again, on June 13, 1929, Our Lady said,

“The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father to make, in union with all the Bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, promising to save it [Russia] by this means.”

And yet again, in a May, 1952 appearance to Sister Lucia, Our Lady said,

“Make it known to the Holy Father that I am always awaiting the consecration of Russia to my immaculate Heart. Without the consecration, Russia will not be able to convert, nor will the world have peace.”

In 1946, Sister Lucia confirmed yet again, this time to Father Jongen, “The exact petition of Our Lady was for the Holy to make the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.”

And again, In the famous 1957 interview with Father Fuentes, Sister Lucia said,

“Father, many times the Blessed Virgin told me and my cousins Jacinta and and Francisco that Russia is the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation [Russia].“

I have at least five other similar citations, all of them restating the obvious, that Our Lady asked for Russia to be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart and also, warned that unless this was done, Russia would spread her errors to such an extent that no nation at all would be spared. In his book on Fatima, William Thomas Walsh confirmed, that in his 1956 interview with her, Sister Lucia stated most emphatically,

“What Our Lady wants is that the Pope and all the Bishops in the world shall consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart on one special day. If this is done, she will convert Russia and there will be peace. If it is not done, the errors of Russia will spread through every country in the world.”

Walsh then asked, “Does this mean that every country, without exception, will be overcome by communism?”

“Yes”, was Sister Lucia’s precise answer.

Mary’s Promise

“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.” (Our Lady of Fatima, June 13, 1917)

Immaculate Heart of Mary
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Mother, Pray for Us Now and at the Hour of Our Death. Amen.

I awoke this morning to see the sky that achingly beautiful blue that fills my soul with longing for heaven. Rosary in hand I thought of St. Teresa’s Hail Mary. She appeared to one of her devoted sistser of Carmel to tell her that if she could, she would return to earth  to say just one Hail Mary, so effective is that prayer. And so throughout the day, I pray “St. Teresa’s Hail Mary” for her.

Just think a moment — St. Teresa of Avila, that great doctor of the Church, came back to say, … what? To explain her mystical insight in the Mansions? No. She returned to urge her sisters to pray the simple, loving Hail Mary. Dear readers, Our Lady’s promise to us is simply this: Her Immaculate Heart, that is, her most pure and perfect will, to strengthen us and lead us through this maelstrom of the Chastisement of the Church today.

Today, we have a pope who appears to be an apostate, and who misleads the faithful that contraception is allowed in some instances, that some couples who co-habit without marriage have the grace of marriage while many who have been sacramentally married do not,  who never misses the opportunity to attack the faith of those who still listen to him. Then the devil rejoices! This is the Passion of the Bride of Christ; do not fail Our Lord now!

Although the hour is late, we must struggle in this cesspool of a world with all its dreary temptations. The grace – and with it the graciousness – of the Christian era has receded, leaving a most barren landscape, where lost souls wander. Look around you – how few believe in Christ or His Church; even fewer know of Our Lady of Fatima and even less actually obey her.

It is 99 years after her appearances, and how few Catholics are aware of the simple, effective means God has provided for our salvation and that of those entrusted to us.

False ecumenism and jihad

After the brutal islamic ritual murder of Father Jacques Hamel in France recently, the Catholic world waited in vain for any sign of protest from Pope Francis. This coldly calculated silence from the Bergoglian Vatican will only serve to welcome more such attacks on our priests and faithful. In order to understand what has brought us to this point, where islamists can murder our priests with impunity while our Most Humble and Merciful Pontiff® castigates Catholics, we offer a post from June, 2014 wherein John Vennari of Catholic Family News explains this phenomenon.

Francis and four points of Apostate Action
Islamic prayers to be held at the Vatican
by John Vennari

False Ecumenism and Jihad

This Sunday, June 8, Pope Francis will allow for the first time in history Islamic prayers from the Quoran to be recited at the Vatican. The service is said to be in the cause of Peace in the Middle East (see report below). Members of Judaism will be part of the interfaith gathering as well. This radical initiative is scandalous on at least four counts:

1) The Prayers of Islam worship a false god; not the true God who is the Blessed Trinity; not the true God Jesus Christ, who said “No man comes to the Father but through Me.” Speaking on the modernist notion that various religions worship the same God, the eminent theologian Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange explained that such a tenet denies the principle of non-contradiction, which is the most fundamental principle of reason. Father Garrigou-Lagrange explains, “It is injurious to say that God would consider with equanimity all religions while one teaches truth and one teachers error, when one promises the good and one promises the evil. To say this would be to affirm that God would be indifferent to good and evil, to what is honest and shameful.”[1]
