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.

Frère Michel on the Age of Apostasy, updated

Before we return to the Apocalypse, let’s put a few pieces together. Father Malachi Martin and Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité could have had an interesting discussion, couldn’t they? You all know very well Father Martin’s writings about the enthronement which occurred in the reign of Paul VI. Let’s keep it in mind as we review what Frère Michel tells us here:

From The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III

It is Jesus Himself Who first predicted this terrible crisis of the Faith which will open the “last times”. Along with famines and earthquakes, wars and persecutions, Our Lord clearly predicts that there will also be grave deficiencies even within the Church:

«Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and will put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will fall away, and will betray one another, and will hate one another. And many false prophets will arise, and will lead many astray. And because iniquity will abound, the charity of the many will grow cold. But whoever perseveres to the end, he shall be saved.» (Mt. 24: 9-13)

«… For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have foretold it to you.» (Mt. 24: 24)

Finally, we are familiar with these stupefying words of Jesus:

«Yet when the Son of man comes, will He find, do you think, faith on the earth?» (Lk. 18: 8)

This question of Our Lord, explained by His other prophecies on the last times – which are utterly definite and unconditional – takes on an even more dramatic resonance. The apostasy will come, Jesus evokes its most extreme extension, and He leaves us in uncertainty.

THE APOSTOLIC PREACHING

The Apostles understood this tragic teaching very well. There are countless texts where they evoke this menacing apostasy. They multiply warnings against its artisans, the false prophets and false doctors of all sorts, who come from the Church’s very bosom and are already at work against Her, striving furiously to destroy the Faith of the faithful. But “in the last days”, they make it clear, the false prophets will multiply most dangerously. We must reread chapters II and III of Saint Peter’s Second Epistle:

«But there were false prophets also among the people, just as among you there will be lying teachers who will bring in destructive sects. They even disown the Lord Who bought them, thus bringing upon themselves swift destruction.» (2 Pet. 2: 1)

«This first you must know, that in the last days there will come deceitful scoffers, men walking according to their own lusts, saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”… But beloved, do not be ignorant of this one thing, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord does not delay in His promises, but for your sake is long-suffering, not wishing that any should perish but that all should turn to repentance. (2 Pet. 3: 3-9)

We must reread Saint Jude, taking up the same theme:

St. Michael, the Angel of Peace

For St. Michael, on his feast day:

Our Lady of the Rosary appeared six times at Fatima from May through October, 1917; however, these important apparitions were preceded by the apparitions of The Angel of Peace, St. Michael the Archangel in 1916. And so, this is the 100th anniversary of those Angelic visits, which served then to prepare the children for the work of the Blessed Virgin and may help prepare us for our work as her children in the time to come.

The following is compiled from a variety of Fatima resources, especially from Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité’s ‘The Whole Truth About Fatima, Volume I’ (Link).

"Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men. Make reparation for their crimes and console Our Lord."
“Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men.
Make reparation for their crimes and console Our Lord.”

The Angelic apparitions took place in spring, summer and fall, 1916, when Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta were nine, eight and six, respectively. On a spring day, they shepherded their flocks on the east side of the Cabeço. After lunch and the Rosary, they began to play when,

” … a strong wind began to shake the trees. We looked up, startled, to see what was happening, for the day was unusually calm. Then we saw coming towards us, above the olive trees, the figure I have already spoken about. Jacinta and Francisco had never seen it before, nor had I ever mentioned it to them. As it drew closer, we were able to distinguish its features. It was a young man, about fourteen or fifteen years old, whiter than snow, transparent as crystal when the sun shines through it, and of great beauty.”

“We were surprised, absorbed, and struck dumb with amazement. On reaching us, he said:

“Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.”

Kneeling on the ground, he bowed down until his forehead reached the ground. Led by a supernatural impulse, we did the same, and repeated the words which we heard him say:

“My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You!”

Having repeated these words three times, he rose and said:

“Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications.”

Then he disappeared.

Frère Michel remarks on the apparition, as at Horeb, when it was given to Elijah to enter into the presence of God, as at the Cenacle at the moment when the divine Spirit descended on the Apostles, or finally at Massabielle, when the Immaculate Conception came to visit Bernadette, it is by a sudden and mysterious wind that the Angel of Fatima announced his approach. ‘Who makest the clouds thy chariot: who walkest upon the wings of the winds.’ (Ps. 103:3)

And the words of the Angel echo the words of the Angels in other Biblical apparitions, ‘Fear not! I am the angel of peace.’ The presence of the Angel always fills the witnesses with astonishment, and he must first reassure them. ‘Fear not!’ he says to Zachary and to the Blessed Virgin, to the shepherds on the night of the Nativity, and to the holy women on the morning of the Resurrection.

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!
