The Miracle of Fatima at the Vatican 1950


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, he 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.

A sign appeared in heaven …

“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.

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, Frere 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 Cardinal Montini, the future Paul VI made with the communist leaders of the former USSR. Perhaps we shall cover this in a future post, if there is interest….

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. To those who hear this message, you must make reparation for them, and offer many rosaries for them, 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.

Now, in these last two years 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.


Our Lady of the Rosary pray for us!

Viva Cristo Rey!

First Saturdays of Reparation

Amidst all the clamor and confusion of these latter days, We here repeat our constant plea for First Saturdays of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Awaiting the Church's Obedience to the Mother of God
Awaiting the Church’s Obedience to the Mother of God

There are many, many wonderful, dedicated Catholics expending their resources and efforts alerting Catholics to the errors of the Pope and Bishops and  many are calling for the Consecration of Russia, which can only be accomplished by a humble and obedient Pope and Bishops. In other words, by people who do not presently exist in this poor Church. How few, in contrast expend their efforts promoting something much simpler and within the grasp of all, or most Catholics. The First Saturdays of Reparation are something we can do and should do.

First Saturdays of Reparation are Essential in Order to Obtain the Consecration of Russia

That statement, that the First Saturdays are essential to fulfill the requests of Our Lady of Fatima in order to end the chastisement is obvious and incontrovertible.  The message of Fatima demands worldwide repentance, reparation through the First Saturdays and through one’s daily duties of state.

If you have a forum, be it online or in print, and you point out the errors of the Church today, and try to inform your readers about the message of Fatima, and yet you fail to stress the First Saturdays of Reparation and the need for total reparation, day by day, minute by minute reparation through the sacrifice of our daily duties, through Total Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, you are misleading your readers. You are giving them a partial truth that is more dangerous than an outright lie. A partial truth that informs Catholics about the problems, yet does not teach them the weapons Our Lady has given us to fight this evil, only serves to dishearten them and drive them towards the heresy of sedevacantism.

To all of you who affirm the truth that the Consecration of Russia has not been done, I urge you to give your utmost attention to reminding people, as vigorously as possible, of the need for the First Saturdays of Reparation. Please tell others how necessary the First Saturdays are and how they must be performed.

People must know:

Our Lady of Fatima requests that the devotion of First Saturdays of Reparation consist of:

  • Confession (may be within 8 days either before or after).
  • Holy Communion
  • 5 Decade Rosary (““o terzo”, Portuguese for one third of the Rosary.)
  • 15 minutes of visiting with Our Lady in reparation, while meditating on mysteries of her Rosary

Each of the above steps, that is, Confession, Communion, Rosary and meditation must be offered in a spirit of reparation, of course.

To repeat: The message of Fatima demands worldwide repentance, reparation through the First Saturdays and through one’s daily duties of state.

In her more than 2,000 years existence, the Church has never before faced such a diabolical onslaught from the depths of hell. Many “experts” attempt to minimize the danger by pointing out that the Church has had apostate popes many times before. But never has the Church had such a preponderance of those who actively seek to destroy her from within, who actively proselytize for sodomy, who attack faithful Catholics and drive them from the Church.

The filth and stench of corruption in the Vatican cannot be extirpated by mere human effort. It is a most grievous offense before God, and there is no remedy but that which He Himself has given us in His Immaculate Mother, to whom alone it is given to crush the head of satan and drive him from the Church. If you want the Church cleansed from these impurities and renewed again, there is no remedy but Mary!

If everyone who posted on the problems in the Church would give at least some of their effort to promoting the First Saturdays of Reparation, we could be certain of a generous response from the Immaculata, who never fails her children. Please help promote this essential devotion.

Pray the Rosary and confound the devil!

The Third Apparition of Fatima

On July 13, 1917, 97 years ago today, Our Lady of the Rosary made her Third Apparition to the little shepherds at Fatima. From Father Gruner’s site,

At this visit, she told the children: ‘

Sacrifice yourselves for sinners, and say often to Jesus, especially whenever you make a sacrifice: O Jesus, it is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Continue reading “The Third Apparition of Fatima”

Pope Francis and Fatima

The following is an updated repost regarding Pope Francis disdain for Fatima.

At Fatima, Our Lord Jesus Christ sent us His Beloved Mother to offer us His mercy yet again, if we heed the call to penance and reparation to her Immaculate Heart, which is the means He gives to us to save ourselves and other sinners from the wrath of His justice.

In her apparitions at Fatima and the ones following, when Sister Lucia was at her convent, Our Lady showed her Immaculate Heart and requested specific reparations be made; among them were the First Saturdays of Reparation and the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, by the Pope and the Bishops. Our Lord Jesus Christ also appeared to Lucia to request compliance with Our Lady’s wishes. The apparition of 13 June, 1929 was the most significant of the apparitions and in it, Our Blessed Mother formally requested the Consecration of Russia.

That apparition  deserves a post of its own and I am working on it, but for right now, suffice to say that the Virgin Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ requested acts of reparation and obedience, both private, – as in our rosaries and offerings of sacrifice and penance in our daily duties – and public, – as in the First Saturdays of reparation and the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the Pope and Bishops.

Never at any time has any Pope since Fatima propagated the acts of reparation needed. An encyclical or Moto Proprio enjoining the First Saturdays of Reparation would have helped so much. As would the simple compliance of Consecrating Russia properly. The Popes instead made “entrustments” and consecrated the world and so on; apparently dancing around the edges of the issue while dodging the actual obedience required.

And all the while, God’s wrath is building. And His signs increase as well. In the midst of the horrible apocalyptic blast at Hiroshima, devout Catholics were spared, totally untouched by the radiation. In Pope Francis’ own domain, in Buenos Aires a beautiful Eucharistic miracle was given, but went unheeded by this Pope who evidently has a tin ear for the Eucharistic sacrifice.

Vatican II was a severe chastisement for the Church and its work of destroying the Church is coming to a climax shortly. The Vatican II wrecking crew have so thoroughly done their jobs that few Catholics today have any inkling of the true faith. Therefore, they are not that distressed in the unfortunate utterances of Pope Francis and his gaffe of the day routine. Even traditional Catholics did not object at Pope Begoglio’s awful consecration of his reign to Our Lady of Fatima. If sincere, he should have gone to Fatima and humbled himself and personally consecrated his pontificate to Our Lady of Fatima, humbly vowing to be obedient to her demands, all of them!

Since this post was originally written, we have had yet another “entrustment” of the world, which is becoming insulting. To understand how insulting these continued false consecrations, or entrustments of the world are, I offer an example.  Continue reading “Pope Francis and Fatima”
