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.

If … If Not …

“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 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.”

That is to say, that one way or another, God’s justice will prevail, despite our willful disobedience. Nowhere is this more apparent that in the United States of America during this tragic pre-election melodrama.

The following post is my final attempt to address repeated requests of some readers to clarify the spiritual implications of the current political turmoil in the United States.

“And the second angel sounded the trumpet: and as it were a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood: [9] And the third part of those creatures died, which had life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed.” (Apoc. 8, 8)

Although the above has been applied appropriately to Islam, in our times it is more accurately applied to Russia. Indeed, Our Lady’s last appearance at Fatima on October 13, 1917, was just 25 days prior to the Bolshevik Revolution of November 7, 1917 (which was October 25 in the Julian or Old Style calendar by which it is referred to as the “October Revolution”).

As Father Sylvester Berry points out in his book, The Apocalypse of St. John, the burning mountain is most certainly a country and with the hindsight we have now, 99 years after Our Lady of Fatima warned that if Russia was was not consecrated,  she (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.”

Fr. Berry:  “The vision shows that, despite the preaching of the Gospel, some great nation will bring war and bloodshed upon a large portion of mankind. It also predicts great persecutions against the Church. Nations will seek to destroy the Church at all hazards.”

In another earlier post, Islam and the Errors of Russia, we explained the connection between the two evils, Islam and Russia. This will all be clear soon, as the chastisement reveals its contours more clearly. But for now, just note: Blessed Elena Aiello prophesied in the year 1960 (note well the date) that “Russia will battle America and will overcome Europe. … will raise her flag over the Dome of St. Peter’s.”  Indeed, some have noted that with Pope Francis, we already have a marxist pope, since he currently owns a symbol of the errors of Russia, that is, a hammer and sickle on which Christ Our Saviour hangs crucified.

The Message of Fatima, 2016

“From now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.”

 

The Message of Fatima is both a warning and a promise. In 1917, between May 13 and October 13, the Queen of Heaven appeared 6 times to three shepherd children in a small village near Fatima, Portugal in order to warn of impending chastisement and offer mankind a sure way of safety and peace. Most Catholics today believe that the Message of Fatima has been relegated to the past and no longer pertains to this modern church, which is so focused on social justice and ecology issues. They are wrong.

The oldest of the shepherd children of Fatima, Lucia explained the message of Fatima to Father Fuentes years later:

“From now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.”

The oldest of the shepherd children of Fatima, Lucia explained the message of Fatima to Father Fuentes years later:

“Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world, but She made me understand this for three reasons.”

“The first reason is because She told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Also, from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.“

“The second reason is because She said to my cousins as well as to myself, that God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the last two remedies which signify that there will be no others.”

“The third reason is because in the plans of Divine Providence, God always, before He is about to chastise the world, exhausts all other remedies. Now, when He sees that the world pays no attention whatsoever, then as we say in our imperfect manner of speaking, He offers us with certain fear the last means of salvation, His Most Holy Mother. It is with certain fear because if you despise and repulse this ultimate means, we will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven, because we will have committed a sin which the Gospel calls the sin against the Holy Ghost. This sin consists of openly rejecting, with full knowledge and consent, the salvation which He offers. Let us remember that Jesus Christ is a very good Son and that He does not permit that we offend and despise His Most Holy Mother. … Our Lord Jesus Christ has always defended the honor of His Mother.”

“Look, Father, the Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary, to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, or of the religious communities, or even of the life of peoples and nations, that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary. With the Holy Rosary we will save ourselves, we will sanctify ourselves, we will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls.

“Finally, devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Most Holy Mother, consists in considering Her as the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon, and as the certain door by which we are to enter Heaven.”

The message of Fatima is then that we are now in a life or death struggle, even though most people are oblivious. As Sister Lucia warns us, “we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.” Where do you stand?

The purpose of this blog is to call Catholics to return to Fatima. Re-examine the message given to us by the Blessed Virgin Mary. Remove the blinders that are making you think that Fatima was “a long time ago, and is no longer relevant”.

What did Our Lady of Fatima ask for?

At Fatima, the Blessed Virgin did not ask extraordinary things. Essentially, her requests were for prayer (Rosary) and reparation, much as the Old Testament prophets and Jesus’ own demands that the Israelites repent. What she asks is:

Several strong signs were given to the popes to point them towards Fatima’s message: Pope Pius XII was consecrated a Bishop on the same date that Our Blessed Mother first appeared at Fatima, May 13, 1917, and he was given his very own apparition related to Fatima when between October 30 and November 8, 1950, he witnessed the sun appear to dance. (See here) Pope John Paul II, who was the only pope to experience first hand the errors of Russia, barely survived an assassination attempt on May 13, 1981. Although these popes appeared to understand the connection with Fatima, they did not go so far as to actually obey Our Lady’s commands by consecrating Russia to her Immaculate Heart in the way she commanded it.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA

The Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, if it were properly done by the Pope in unison with the Bishops of the Church would serve several purposes.

  • It is an act that must be initiated and commanded by the Pope personally, therefore it would correct the Vatican II error of collegiality.
  • It would assert the Pope’s authority over Russia, thus correcting the Orthodox schism.
  • Such an act would indicate the mediation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, thus correcting Vatican II’s error of false ecumenism with protestant heretics.
  • The Consecration of Russia as requested by the Blessed Virgin indicates the goal of conversion of Russia to the true faith, thus correcting the Vatican II error of religious liberty.
  • If the Pope were to promote the devotion of the First Saturdays it would provide a strong instruction to the world that sin offends God and that we must pray and make reparation to prevent souls from falling into hell. What an excellent teaching against the pernicious heresy of the neo-modernist theology that is devastating the Church!
  • The Consecration of Russia can only be done by a chastened, penitent Pope, one who has learned the hard way of the futility of following a religion of man. This is in stark contrast to the shallow arrogance exemplified by the current Pope of the Twitterverse and his encyclical on climate change.

Fatima’s message is more relevant today than it ever was. When Pope John XXIII refused to release the message that Our Lady commanded be released in the year 1960, the world experienced a spiritual shock: the Vicar of Christ on earth refusing to obey the Mother of Christ. Never before in history has such a thing happened.

And thus began the Chastisement.

The initial chastisement was the result of the spiritual blindness which descended upon the pope and hierarchy following their willful disobedience. When one separates himself from God by mortal sins, the darkened reason is unable to discern the correct path and stumbles into error and folly. Vatican II and its poisonous fruits, which caused unprecedented abandonment of religious vocations and the loss of faith and Catholic identity of entire nations was the fruit of this spiritual ignorance which descended upon the Church.

When God chastens us, He is merciful; indeed, His mercy and His justice are inseparable. The initial chastisement of the catastrophic Second Vatican Council could have been mitigated. If only the Pope had seen the noxious results for what they were and repented, his repentance would have brought down God’s mercy.

But the hearts of the popes were hardened in their sin and they have persisted in disobedience of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Mother. The result has been an unmitigated disaster for the Catholic Faith. Now, with Pope Francis, we have descended into subterranean depths of disobedience against God’s laws. This darkness and spiritual desolation cannot be dispelled by human means.

God’s own Most Holy Mother is the last means of salvation we are offered. Until Catholics return to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, with humility, repentance and obedience, the Chastisement will continue to unfold, bringing with it ever more severe spiritual desolation, a desolation which will soon reach proportions never before seen, with nations destroyed and such physical calamities that those who survive them will envy the dead.

In his last Fatima update, Father Gruner of the Fatima Center related that when he had recently spoken with Father Gabriel Amorth, the world’s foremost exorcist, Father Amorth told him that unless the Pope and Bishops consecrate Russia as requested by the end of October, the Chastisement will occur soon after. This indicates a relationship with the Pope’s plans for the final Synod of October, 2015.

We are now seeing the toxic results of that Synod’s agenda throughout the Church. At the current rate of acceleration, it seems likely that we may soon see what was foretold by Sister Lucia:

‘In time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. In eternity, Heaven!’

“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.” (Antonio Socci).

ISIS has threatened to raise their hateful flag over the Vatican, and they appear intent in carrying through on all their despicable agenda, so it is not beyond the bounds of reason that the Chastisement may include God’s unleashing the terrible forces of nature (as in the above scenario) and an islamist attack on the Vatican, which could end with the familiar “Bishop in White” at the foot of the cross, as foretold in the released portion of the Third Secret.

We know that in the end, Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart will triumph; the only question that remains is will we choose to be with her, will we take the steps necessary to be on the winning side?

What steps are required of us at this late hour? How can we return to the message of Fatima?

  • By our personal acts of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of His Dear Mother, Our Lady.
  • By our daily rosary for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and through her, of Christ the King.
  • By our daily sacrifices in loving reparation for sins against the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart of Mary.
  • By wearing of Our Lady’s own Scapular of Mount Carmel.
  • By practicing the devotion of the First Saturdays of Reparation.
  • By promoting the entire Message of Fatima by example and by sharing the information regarding these devotions and the Message of Fatima with others.
  • And lastly by always seeking to be informed and knowledgeable regarding the doctrines and practices of the Faith and the ways they are being threatened and undermined today by enemies within and without the Church.

Take every opportunity to read more about Fatima and its true message. Pray and sacrifice daily for the Consecration of Russia as required by Our Lady of Fatima.   

If at all possible, get to know other true Catholics. and above all, spread the word!

All that is left is for us to draw close to the Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God and trust in her merciful love, which will never fail us. Let us strive to save our souls and all those souls who have been entrusted to us.

Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff. 

~ posted by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Holy Rosary, Queen of our hearts!

Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!

Thank you all for your  prayers and your support. God bless you all and Mary keep you close.

Fatima: “Private Revelation”?

“The wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity.

“These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.“ (Pope Leo XIII)

Even the densest neo-Catholic has begun to see the prescience of Pope Leo XIII’s words in the events occurring since that fateful evening March 13, 2013. And yet, tragically, few Catholics even consider the one remedy God has given us to cleanse the Church – and the world! – from this evil. This remedy is the true message of Fatima, revealed to the Church and the world nearly a century ago, and all but ignored to this day.  Satan has succeeded in obscuring the true message of Fatima with misinterpretations and pious distractions, but now, with his latest book, “A Catechism on Fatima”,  John Salza has given us valuable help to clear away the obfuscation and errors about Fatima.

Salza’s latest book is even more than a manual for the truth about the message of Fatima; it is an excellent refutation of the pervasive errors which obscure the true message and cause so many otherwise faithful Catholics to spurn this vital truth.

Two of the most diabolically deceptive errors about the Message of Fatima are that it is a mere “private revelation” and that the Consecration of Russia is a moot point. These two deceits alone have prevented so many Catholics from obeying the Blessed Virgin’s commands.

Regarding the erroneous statement that Fatima is just “private revelation”. Salza explains that a private revelation is intended for the person to whom the revelation is given, whereas Fatima’s message is intended for the entire world and most especially, for the Pope.

Why Not First Saturdays?

Satan is engaged in a decisive battle with the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Church. In this battle, which Sister Lúcia describes emphatically as final, “either we are for God, or we are for the devil, there is no other possibility.”

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!

To arm us for this battle, God gives us two remedies,, the Rosary and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Sr. Lucia warns, “if you despise and repulse this ultimate means, we will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven, because we will have committed a sin which the Gospel calls the sin against the Holy Ghost.”

To be very clear, when Lucia said “We will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven”, that means there will be no mitigation, no easing, of the terrible Chastisement about to befall mankind. There are many, many prophesies about this, from the Apocalypse on down through the ages, But for now, our focus is Fatima. And in this, Our Lady of the Rosary could not be more clear:

“I will 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 [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.”

Our Lady of Fatima and Islam

As soon as I am able, will have new posts, but for now, a repost because this topic is even more appropriate than when it was written a year ago.

Have you ever wondered why the Queen of Heaven chose the rural backwater of Fatima, Portugal to make her appearance in 1917? Does the name Fatima remind you of anything? Now that Islam is daily slaughtering Christians in the name of their false god, it may profit us to look into these things a bit further.

Our Lady of Victory, crush satan's head & lead us to victory! Our Lady of the Rosary, save our families, save the Church!
Our Lady of Victory, crush satan’s head & lead us to victory!
Our Lady of the Rosary, save our families, save the Church!

In 1952, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen published a book, “The World’s First Love, Mary, the Mother of God”. The book was a tour de force of devotion to Our Lady, especially Our Lady of Fatima. The Servant of God devoted the entire 17th Chapter of his book to, “Mary and the Moslems”, for so they were called then. This book is in the public domain as all Catholic spiritual writing should be, and is available for free from www.archive.org. That site offers the book in a variety of formats, including pdf, Kindle and iBook. I offer these excerpts from the 17th Chapter with my comments for your review to facilitate the discussion and awareness of Our Lady of Fatima’s importance in this ongoing chastisement.

“At the present time, the hatred of the Moslem countries against the West is becoming a hatred against Christianity itself. Although the statesmen have not yet taken it into account, there is still grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return and, with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power. Moslem writers say, “When the locust swarms darken vast countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words: *We are God’s host, each of us has ninety-nine eggs, and if we had a hundred, we should lay waste the world with all that is in it.”

Regarding locusts, see Apocalypse Chapter 9, verse 3 and verses 7-11:

“And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. …And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle: and on their heads were, as it were, crowns like gold: and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women; and their teeth were as lions: And they had breastplates as breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was as the noise of chariots and many horses running to battle. And they had tails like to scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had over them a king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans.”

True or False Pope?

Often, traditional Catholics focus so strongly on the errors besetting the progressive and conservative Catholics that we may overlook or underestimate the dangers of the sedevacantist threat. Although most of us would rather not discuss it, sedevacantism is an ever-increasing danger to Catholics, not only to traditionals, but also to the awakening mass of conservatives. Up until now, I have dodged discussions over sedevacantism and simply urged others to avoid it like the plague it is. I’m aware of my limitations and when pushed for more information, usually refer inquirers to Dr. Robert Siscoe, John Vennari or John Salza, i.e., someone who can assist them.

That is why I was happy to see that John Salza and Robert Siscoe have written a solid, thoroughly documented refutation of sedevacantism. At 700 pages, it is not exactly a quick read. And for me, will require a lot of work and a great deal of time to get through it. I will not be able to purchase it until after the first of the year, but for now, will share with you some excerpts from a recent interview by Catholic Family News which demonstrates the value of the book, and shows us the scope of the threat posed by sedevacantism. For a full interview and more information on the book, please see:  “TRUE OR FALSE POPE? Refuting Sedevacantism and other Modern Errors”.

A few quotes:

“Siscoe/Salza: The book was originally intended to be a refutation of Sedevacantism alone, but it developed into much more. It addresses and answers virtually all of the difficult questions that are on the minds of Traditional Catholics, and even the conservative Catholics, today. Something else worth noting is that as the book developed systematically, it logically led to the refutation of other errors that depart from Tradition to the Right. In the post-Vatican II era, Traditional Catholics have been fighting against the errors of Modernism and Liberalism that have infected the Church. But, as usually happens, the reaction to these errors of the Left has caused some to overreact in the opposite direction. With the human condition as it is, such a pendulum swing is entirely to be expected. We address a number of these overreactions to the Right, which can be just as dangerous as the errors to the Left – especially for Traditional Catholics, since the errors on the Right appear to be nothing but a refutation of a Liberal error on the Left. The result is that the Traditional Catholics’ sensus fidelium, which is flashing with lights and sirens in response to the errors on the Left, is less likely to alert them to the errors of excess on the Right. The solution to the errors in either direction is a firm adherence to Tradition, which, as St. Vincent of Lerins said, “can never be led astray by any lying novelty” – that is, by a lying novelty on the Right or on the Left.”

The Message of Fatima for the post-synodal church

To understand what is expected of us in the post-synodal church, we must return to the true message of Fatima. Now, when the Church is being assaulted by those within its highest ranks. we look to Our Lady of Fatima, Star of the stormy sea.

On June 13, 1929, during her accustomed Holy Hour, Sister Lucia of Fatima received what was perhaps the most significant vision of the Most Holy Trinity and Blessed Virgin ever recorded in the history of the faith.

Last Vision of Fatima

Sister Lucia described the vision:

Suddenly the whole chapel became bright with a supernatural light and above the altar appeared a luminous cross that extended to the ceiling. In an even brighter light appeared above the cross the face of a Man with His body down to the waist. In front of His chest was a Dove, also made entirely of light, and nailed to the cross was the Body of another Man. A little below His hips appeared a chalice floating in the air and a large host, upon which fell the drops of blood that streamed from the face of the Crucified, and from His wounded side. They flowed down upon the host, and from there they fell into the chalice.

Beneath the cross and to the right was Our Lady with her Immaculate Heart in her hand (it was Our Lady of Fatima with her Immaculate Heart, which she held in her left hand, without a sword or roses, but rather, surrounded with a crown of thorns and all aflame).

Beneath the cross on the left appeared large letters, as though made of crystal-clear water, that flowed from the hand of the Crucified down upon the altar and formed the following words, Grace and Mercy.

I understood that the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity was being shown to me, …”

The Auto-demolition of the Church

Miserabilism demands that the Church and her hierarchy divest of all properties and splendor and become truly indigent. It was evident particularly in the Protestant revolution which hated the beauty of Catholic art, architecture, music and all that caused the Church to have dignity. Miserabilism would strip the Church of her beauty, both spiritual and temporal in the name of a false humility.This heretical tendency is among the many that were part of the revolution of Vatican II and now reaches its full flowering in miserabilist Pope Francis, the First Humble Pope in History®.

Tho all else fail, The Immaculate will prevail!

Though all else fail, the Immaculate will prevail!

Msgr. Eugene Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, made this astonishing prophecy on the future upheaval in the Church:

“I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucy of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul. … I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject Her ornaments and make Her feel remorse for Her historical past.

“A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, ‘Where have they taken Him?'” (Roche, Pie XII Devant L’Historie, p. 52-53, quoted by Father Kramer in “The Devil’s Final Battle”, 2002, Good Counsel Publications. Thorough documentation on this quote, including the date, 1933, can be found at the website of Atila Sinke Guimaraes, Tradition in Action.)

The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception was defined and proclaimed in the 19th century, and early in the 20th century, our Lord Jesus Christ sent His Mother to request devotion to her Immaculate Heart as a remedy for the increasing heresies of scientism and modernism, the increasing apostasy from the faith. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is absolutely inimical to the Lord of the World, Satan, who is at war always and everywhere with the Church, the Bride of Christ, and with her Mother. Exorcists have amply demonstrated this intense hatred which Satan bears for the Blessed Virgin Mary, and his impotence where she is concerned. This is documented in the writings of Fathers Gabriele Amorth, Malachi Martin and Leon Cristiani.

Father Nicholas Gruner – Requiescat in Pace

Father Nicholas Gruner fought against the lies and iniquity of our times, tirelessly proclaiming the necessity to obey Our Lady of Fatima’s command to Consecrate Russia. For this he was slandered and maligned as perhaps no other person except Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.

From Father Gruner’s Fatima Center, early this morning, comes the sad notice of his passing.

Rest in Peace: Father Nicholas Gruner, May 4, 1942 — April 29, 2015

The resistance to the Fatima Message is due to the lack of love for the truth among so many Catholics today. As Father pointed out,  Second Thessalonians expresses clearly how those who spurn the truth are allowed to fall into error, to believe lies and eventually to consent to iniquity. By rejecting the message of the Mother of God, they are given over to error and iniquity.

Thus, our arrogant Pope and Bishops like Kasper and Danneels et al, have fallen headlong into depravity and apostasy. The Synod scheduled for October will only drive the Church deeper into the darkness of apostasy unless the Pope and hierarchy repent and obey Our Lord Jesus Christ and His immaculate Mother.

Although he was always attacked unmercifully, Father Gruner never stopped calling for the Consecration of Russia because he knew that the darkness can only be dispelled by obediently turning towards the light and truth that is Christ. Without total, absolute devotion to all of the faith, all of the commands of God, there is no hope of salvation.

The Meaning of the Command to Consecrate Russia

On several occasions, Our Lady of Fatima stated that she would come to ask for the Consecration of Russia. Then, in 1929, she did so. Why then? Pope Pius XI was unfailingly faithful to Catholic dogma as evidenced by his many brilliant Encyclicals such as Quas Primas, Quadragesimo Anno and Divini Redemptoris. However, under the influence of his Secretary of State, Cardinal Gasparri, he entered into a number of concordats with secular powers. Among them were the Lateran Treaties of 1929, in which Pope Pius XI signed away the Vatican States for a large sum of money to be invested and managed in the international banking system, thus embroiling the Vatican in  Masonic corruption and intrigue.

It was this that caused Our Lady of Fatima to appear once again to Sister Lucia and request the Pope and the Bishops humble themselves and obey her. By their obedience, our Prelates would correct their error, defy the international bankers who had become the masters behind the scenes of the Vatican, and prove their allegiance to God’s law above all else.

Father Gruner, even in death, is still being maligned. A friend just sent me a snide swipe at Father from a conservative Catholic blog. But I smiled when I read it, because of course, Father Gruner is still being rejected, just as our dear Lady of Fatima is, just as Our Lord Jesus Christ still is! We should expect no more for ourselves.

For me, I can hope for no better than to set Father as my model and speak the truth, serve the truth, live the truth. May Our Lady bring her good and faithful servant into the love and truth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, there to rest with Him forever.

As always, pray the Rosary and confound the devil!
