Daniel and St. Michael

In several recent posts, such as yesterday’s Apocalypse 12, Part II,  I have attempted to prepare such readers as still follow me for the events to come.  Soon, my poor efforts will become irrelevant. This site, Return to Fatima, is totally consecrated to  the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King, and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Church, whether or not anyone ever reads any words written here.  My job is almost complete, thanks be to God, who ordains all for His glory and the salvation of souls.

Tomorrow is September 23, and has been spoken of by others as significant for several reasons. First, we quote from Marianna Bartold, in  “Fatima, the Apocalypse and the Lights of Heaven, Parts 1 &2”  :

The Immaculate Conception, because God hates sin!
O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

“On September 23, 2017, the sun will rise behind the constellation Virgo—an annual event. What is rare and striking about this year is the interaction of the planets Jupiter, Venus, Mars, and Mercury. Last year, on November 20, 2016, Jupiter (the “king” planet) entered the constellation Virgo. In retrograde motion, Jupiter is currently in Virgo’s womb, but exits Virgo on September 23 (after 43 weeks, 6 days or 9.5 months, an over-due gestational length of an unborn baby). On that day, almost directly above the head of Virgo will be Leo (the 12th largest constellation), which includes—but is not limited to—12 brighter lights of heaven, three of them being the planets Venus, Mars, and Mercury. Additionally, the moon will be near (but not directly under) the feet of Virgo.”

Bartold’s skillful narrative weaves together the writings of the Prophet Daniel, the Message of Fatima and the revelation of Akita. The gist of it is that centuries before the coming of Christ, God gave us, in the prophecies of Daniel, important intimations for these latter times.  We know that our Creator, Lord of Heaven and Earth, prepares us for momentous times by prophecies and signs in the heavens.  Many of our brightest writers today believe that the heavenly sign on September 23 is an indication of an event soon to take place.  In Daniel Chapter 12, v.1, which concludes a lengthy prophecy we read:

“But at that time shall Michael rise up, the great prince, who standeth for the children of thy people: and a time shall come such as never was from the time that nations began even until that time. And at that time shall thy people be saved, every one that shall be found written in the book.”

As we read that ancient quote, we recall the more recent words of the Blessed Virgin at Akita. Just as Our Lady gave us a silent prophecy  at Knock to reiterate and emphasize her silenced prophecy at La Salette, Our Lady responded to the  Vatican’s censoring of the prophetic Message of Fatima with the emphatic  doomsday scenario foretold at Akita. Thus she answered Pope John XXIII’s accusation against doomsayers with the very clear warning at Akita. as we discussed in “Fatima, Akita and the Chastisement“:

“If men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will

The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.

wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. 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.”

“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.”

“The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.”

“. . . Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.“

Please consider the importance of penance and Rosaries daily in reparation these 21 days from September 23 until October 13.  In her article, Bartold explains the scriptural precedence for this, related to St. Michael.  This may be the last opportunity some of us have to mitigate the severity of the coming trials, not for the world, because that time has past, but for many souls entrusted to us. Right now, our primary objective must be to save souls, and I hope that those of you who read this will heed it for if you ask, it shall be given to you, as Our Lord promised. “Ask and you shall receive that your joy may be full.” (John 16, 23)

In anticipation of the usual detractors,  regardless of what happens or does not happen on October 13, the point here is that deadlines are passing, each of them leaving in their wake yet more wreckage of God’s Covenant with His Chosen People. The devil himself is afoot in  the Vatican with the present occupants/usurpers. With the passing of each opportunity to repent and obey the Mother of God, fresh insults are heaped upon the Crucified.  I trust that most of our readers understand the significance of this.  Please do not be indifferent to our plea! Here is Sister Lucia’s revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ to her regarding the sacrifice and reparation He demands:

After informing her Bishop of Our Lord’s bitter complaints about the limited number of souls in the state of grace who are disposed to deny themselves, she said:

Here is the true penance which the Good Lord requests today.

“The sacrifice which everybody must impose on himself to lead a life of justice in the observance of His law.”

And He desires that this way be clearly made known to souls, for many give to the word “penance” the sense of great austerities, and as they feel neither the strength nor the generosity for that, they get discouraged and let themselves go into a life of lukewarmness and sin.

Lucia reiterated: Our Lord told me:

“The penance that I request and require now is the sacrifice demanded of everybody by the accomplishment of his own duty and the observance of My law.”

Surely all will appreciate the importance of obeying Our Lord in His very small request. So many souls depend on us now. Do not, like Lot’s wife, look back, but stay focused on our goal – to obey . Our Lord and our Blessed Mother without question or hesitation in this time of trial.

My posts along this line have been too numerous to recount. Readers are free to request more information and I will try to help  as I am able. Thank you for reading.

Please, it is never necessary to thank me personally, but preferable to put your time and energy into promoting the message of Fatima, (perhaps, if you think it worthwhile, this blog and others which seek to serve Our Lady) and working with all your heart, mind and soul to live your Consecrations to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pray the Rosary and confound satan and those who serve him!

  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.
  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
  St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!

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.
