At the Cove da Iria in the poor shepherd town of Fatima in Portugual towards the end of World War I Our Lady appeared to three little children: Lucia Dos Santos, 10 years old; Francisco and Jacinta Marto, ages nine and seven respectively. For a period of six months, from May 13 to October 13, 1917, Our Lady appeared "all dressed in white...more brillant than the sun" because "Jesus wished to make [Her] known and loved...[and] to establish in the world devotion to [Her] Immaculate Heart." When first heard, the story of Our Lady's apparitions to three little innocent shepherd children conjures up idyllic images of a sleepy mountain village tucked away in the picturesque setting of rolling hills where sheep grazed peacefully and life seemed unperturbed by the current events of the world at hand. On the surface, the heavenly apparitions to the little shepherds appear charming and downright enchanting. After all, doesn't it stir your heart to hear such a tender picture of the "gentle and beautiful Lady" visiting simple and unaffected peasant children? But this depiction is one more aptly suited for a prayer card or a Hollywood movie, for the real story of Fatima is one of the most important in the history of the Church. Until recently with the apparitions of the Lady of All Nations at Amsterdam, no other apparition has spoken more clearly of our times. No other apparition has had such universal appeal because of the import of the messages and warnings to all of God's children. Since 1917 the prophecies of Fatima have evoked our attention because of their veracity and their serious content! The very mention of Fatima still to this day arouses concern among those of us who know the alarming predictions of punishment made then for this unrepentant and sinful world! And yet, despite this and despite the distance of time since Our Lady first appeared to those three little seers, the story of Fatima lives on in our hearts because of the hope it offers not just for ourselves but for the whole of God's world - the hope of love and peace in this world through a most caring and loving Mother's heart!
The apparitions at Fatima were preceded for two years by the visitations of the Angel of Portugal, also referred to sometimes as the Angel of Peace. During this time, this Angel instructed the children to say the Rosary properly and guided them towards a deeper understanding of God's love through prayer and sacrifice. In some ways these visitations seem to be a preparatory foundation for their true vocations in life which was to spread the messages of Fatima and to do the will of God in imitation of Our Mother through prayer, penance and sacrifice. These children set an unforgettable example for the rest of the world in the heroic sacrifices that they made for the love of God and neighbor. Yet they were so very young! It was because of their outstanding virtues and their heroic response to God's call that the messages of Fatima became so well known! By their very endurance of physical, emotional and spiritual sufferings and trials, they were living testimonies of the beauty and power of God's love within them. These little shepherds, uneducated and poor as they were, seem to rise above all others simply because they united their hearts to the most loving heart of Mary, Our Mother! As remarkable as it may seem the children were the cause of salvation for so many souls because they embraced the cross through prayer, sacrifice and penance as coredemptors, mediators and advocates, even though they were only seven, eight and ten years old!!!
The Way of The Cross
-Coredemption, Mediation, Advocacy-
When the Angel of Portugal appeared to the children, he seemed to have a commanding presence about him. He so impressed the children by his words and actions that they were forever indelibly engraved on their minds! The Angel was firm yet gentle and loving; he had a singlemindedness of purpose which was to encourage the children to make use of every opportunity "to offer prayers and sacrifices...as acts of reparation for the sins by which God is offended and in supplication for the conversion of sinners." He informed the children that by such acts they would "thus draw down peace upon [their] country!" As a matter of fact, on July 13, 1917 Our Lady said that "in Portugal the doctrine of Faith would always be preserved". Could this not be as a result of the continual and extraordinary sacrifices and prayers of these three little children? Indeed, it very well might be just because of this! But imagine what could happen to the world if we were all to follow their example! In an interview of December 26, 1957 Sr. Lucia, the one remaining seer of the original three children, commented "With prayer and penance, we will not only save ourselves, but likewise all those whom God has placed in our path."
Sacrifice and offering up "all that the Good Lord sends you" for sinners is emphasized throughout the messages of Fatima. The idea of coredemption is a distinctive characteristic of Fatima and is stressed repeatedly because of its salvific importance. The Angel of Fatima said, "Above all, accept submissively the sacrifices that the Lord will send you." Our Lady of Fatima reminded the children to "Sacrifice [them]selves for sinners, and [to] say many times, especially whenever [they] make some sacrifice: 'O Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.'" Certainly today this concept is not a familiar one nor is the value of sacrifice recognizable as a positive and enriching experience. Yet to millions of Christians it should be, for that is the meaning of being "Christ-like." We no longer recognize who we are as Christians, just as we no longer recognize the Cross as our "standard." Without the Cross, without sacrifice, we will have no love, no peace and no salvation.
It is not just prayer that is stressed at Fatima but the Cross of sacrifice. Sacrifice has a true redemptive value. As little Lucia said in distinguishing between prayer and sacrifice: "For sinners, Our Lady told us to make sacrifices!" At La Salette, Our Lady complained that we don't make sacrifices for poor sinners and that during Lent we go to the "butchers like hungry dogs." Furthermore, Melanie Calvat, the seer of La Salette, spoke of the "treasure of precious suffering...for the love of Mary, Virgin, collaborator in the redemption of the human race" on behalf of sinners and the poor souls in purgatory. At Akita, the Blessed Mother said that it was Her wish "for souls who will repair by their suffering and their poverty for the sinners and ingrates." At Amsterdam, the Lady of All Nations said: "Make a sacrifice of your life...Return to the Cross...The first and great commandment is Love. Brotherly Love...The doctrine of Christ is correct, then why is it not being lived correctly and in all its refinement?...Christians know your duty!"
On May 13, 1917 the Blessed Mother visited the children for the first time. Among all the important instructions Our Lady of Fatima gave that day, there was one in the form of a question directed toward the little seers which was to elicit a "free will" response from them. For if they answered in the affirmative it would signify that they, like Mary, would cooperate in the work of redemption for love of God and neighbor as "co-workers" (1Cor 3:9) "in the sufferings of Christ for the sake of His body, the Church" (Col 1:24). This question applies to all of us, not just to the seers. Our Lady asked the children: "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He will to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and of supplication for the conversion of sinners?" The point is that Our Lady asked, She did not demand. Love can not be taken or drawn from a person; love can only be given as a free will act. This is what makes love so meritorious. Hence, the importance of the question. And hence, no matter how small the act done in love, the effective value, although incomprehensible to our finite hearts, is filled with infinite Mercy and shed like a waterfall of Graces upon sinners. Thus, each and every act offered to God in love also provides immeasurable consolation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
If only the infinite merit of even the smallest act of love was understood, we would understand how precious is every moment of our lives, how significant our lives are to God and to one another. If only we understood this life is but the crossroads whereupon we must choose the road to an eternal life either in heaven or hell. Both roads contain suffering; this is a fact. One road is meritorious and fruitful; the other, wasteful and destructive. But if we choose to offer our sufferings as sacrifices, as the little children of Fatima did, we would be taking the right road, the road of the Cross by which we receive the grace of salvation for our own souls and through which a waterfall of graces is shed upon sinners for their salvation. The more we embrace the Cross, the more our hearts become formed in the image and likeness of Our Lord's Most Sacred Heart. Is this not what Our Mother's Immaculate Heart is, a perfect image of Her Son's Most Sacred Heart? Was She not the first to travel this road of Her Son, Her Lord, following His path of the Cross?
In imitation of Christ and Our Mother, true love is a selfless act of assenting to the Father's Will to share His love by sharing one's self or the benefits of one's acts with others. This is the loving act of mediation. Through consenting to Our Lady's request "to bear all suffering" and "to make sacrifices" as coredemptors, the little seers were actively and willingly participating in God's redemptive plan of salvation in true charity, in true love of God and neighbor. So the children, like their Mother, benevolently and salvifically intervened on behalf of humanity through the merits of their good acts. In effect, the children united their hearts lovingly to the will and love of their Mother's heart which is united to the will and love of Her Son's Most Sacred Heart! This is essentially what was illustrated in a vision to the children on June 13, 1917. At that time, the children saw Our Mother's heart suffering and encircled with thorns while simultaneously rays of grace streamed from both hands. As described by Lucia, one set of the "rays of light" seem to descend over herself and through her until they were disbursed over the earth. Of course, this represents the collaborative work of sacrifice and prayer of both the Blessed Mother and Lucia and the resultant shower of graces from God which are mediated through Mary to Lucia and the rest of the world for the conversion of sinners! The other rays of graces, of which Jacinta and Francisco were a part of, ascended towards heaven. This depiction portrayed the fact that while Jacinta and Francisco collaborated with their Mother as "co-workers" of Christ (1Cor 3:9), in God's redemptive plan, they not only benefitted others salvifically but also themselves! Not only that, these rays of light extending upwards symbolize the glory which is given to God and the reparation that is extended to Him through our meritorious cooperation!
The Infinite Merits of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
It is at Fatima that we hear for the first time about "the infinite merits of the Immaculate Heart of Mary" united with the "infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus" as illustrated on the back of the Miraculous Medal. As has been said, love is only meritorious through immolation that is denying one's self or offering of one's self for the sake of another (true charity). When the Angel of Portugal spoke of the "infinite merits of the Immaculate Heart of Mary," he was not only asserting that "Mary suffered [here on earth] and as it were nearly died with Her suffering Son" (Pope Benedict XV's 1918 Pastoral Letter: Inter Sodalicia) but that She continues Her Maternal role as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate since he spoke of Mary's suffering in the present tense. As Pope John Paul II put it: "She does not cease to be the 'Star of the Sea' for all those who are still on their journey of faith" (Redemptoris Mater)! At Amsterdam, the Lady of All Nations said, "Now I stand an oblation before the Cross...This Woman stands in front of you...as the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate...The Woman or Lady of All Nations can and will bestow on all peoples of the world, who have recourse to Her - grace, redemption and peace." And in reference to the union of their hearts, She said: "I have become united to My Son as I had always been united with Him" (August 15, 1951). This is what is meant by the "infinite merits of the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
At La Salette, Our Lady said: "I have suffered all the time for the rest of you!" At Fatima, the little shepherd children were greatly distressed over the suffering of Our Mother as was the seer, Ida Peerdeman, of Amsterdam. Yet these seers possessed an inner peace and joy because they knew the love of their Mother's Immaculate Heart and that through Her Heart God grants the graces of salvation and the peace of the world. They understood "the unique way Mary is united to Christ and eternally loved in this beloved Son, Who is One in Being with the Father. [And that] at the same time, She is and remains open to this 'gift from above' (Jas 1:17), standing out among those who await and receive salvation from the Lord" (Pope John Paul II's Redemptoris Mater), and that through "the infinite merits" of These Two Hearts "She shall crush the serpent's head" (Gen 3:15). What the little seers understood so clearly in the depths of their hearts was elucidated for us by Our Lord in Amsterdam when He said: "Bring the glorified Lady - the Lady of All Nations into your churches. She will lead the nations to Her Lord" and to victory (August 15, 1979). Thus the nations, all the people of God, shall unite their hearts to their Lord with His Cross at the center of the world from which we will have the peace of the Holy Spirit!
What we see at Fatima is the Woman, the Mother of All Nations, suffering for us, sharing God's graces with us, and praying for us! At Fatima, we learn of the sorrowful and suffering heart of Our Mother, pierced and encircled with thorns; we learn that "God grants graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary"; we learn that the Immaculate Heart of Mary "is our refuge and that God has entrusted the peace of the world to Her." Is this not the same message of the Lady of All Nations that She truly is Our Mother and that Her Motherhood consists of being The Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate?
At Fatima, Our Lady asks us to "to carry the Cross" by making sacrifices for others and in reparation for our sins. She also asks us to pray for others as advocates. She leads us to be virtuous, kindhearted and good towards our fellow neighbor. Is this not the very model of a Christian? Do we not see here the same message as that of Amsterdam: that we should follow our Mother's example as coredemptors, mediators and advocates? Is this not the key to salvation and peace among men? To be sure it is! The message of Our Lady of Fatima is, if you entrust your heart to Me, I will grant you the grace to make your heart like that of My Son's. Would this not console Our Lord's Most Sacred Heart and give the greatest glory to God? Isn't this why Our Lord asked us to establish devotion to His Mother's Immaculate Heart? Is not the last great Marian dogma of the Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate a tribute of recognition to the Most Loving Mother and the ultimate declaration of our devotion to Our Mother and Her Immaculate Heart?
Reparation to Our Mother's
Most Immaculate Heart
From Our Mother's loving Immaculate Heart we shall always hear the words: "Not Me, but the Cross" (cf. The Lady of All Nations, December 16, 1949)! For She, who is humblest of all, has the greatest love and respect for Her Son. But there is one thing that has been overlooked, and that is that God demands respect for His Mother, for He has infinite love and respect for Her. It was for this reason that, on June 13, 1929 in a special apparition to Sr. Lucia, Our Lady asked for reparation because "there are so many souls whom the Justice of God condemns for sins committed against me." So although one may not be a devoted and loving child to Mary, Our Mother, it is unacceptable and certainly perilous to one's soul to denigrate or deliberately insult His Mother for it is deemed by God as an offense of the highest degree. We must keep in mind that these sins deeply wound Our Mother and therefore they deeply wound and offend God. Imagine today how much Our Mother is offended and hurt because Her children, especially those who do know Her such as Catholics, either ignore Her or mock Her. Yet this Our Most Loving Mother "continually suffers" and "pleads with Our Lord without ceasing," (cf. Our Lady of La Salette), for "Grace and Mercy" upon these very same children, for the deepest wound to Our Mother's Immaculate Heart is the loss of Her children forever! What would it take for those of us who do respect and love Our Mother to make the First Saturday devotions or say a rosary for the consolation of Her Immaculate Heart and the conversion of sinners? We must ask ourselves, how much do we do for Our Mother who has done so much for us and our loved ones? And would not the greatest gift of all be to hold Her up to all the world, proclaiming Her the Best and Most Loving Mother of the people of God in every nation, under Her title as The Mother of All Nations: Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate? Surely, this is not so difficult to do.
The Consequences of Sin
The Importance of Penance
In the summer of 1916 the Angel again appeared to the children only this time "he was holding a chalice in his left hand, with the Host suspended above it, from which some drops of blood fell into the chalice". With great reverence towards the True Presence he proceeded to pray on his knees "in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which Our Lord Himself is offended". He then offered Lucia the Sacred Host and to her cousins, Jacinta and Francisco, he offered the Blood of the chalice, asking them to make reparation for the horrible offenses committed by ungrateful men against God! Do we really understand what the words "outrages, sacrileges and indifference" mean? Consider all those who receive Our Lord in the Most Holy Eucharist with a mortal sin on their soul. This is an outrage, a sacrilege. It is done without care, with indifference towards the Body and Blood of Christ! The consequence to this, if one dies immediately thereafter without confessing it, is damnation for all eternity and deservedly so (1Cor 11:27-29). Now it is easy to conclude that there are many who are doing exactly that. Just look at the fact that hardly anyone receives the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Penance); compare this with the fact that practically everyone receives the Eucharist during Mass. There is definitely an incongruency.
The fact is that most people do not believe in the consequences of sin nor do they really believe in the existence of hell. Not only does hell exists but it is for all eternity! Most people unfortunately have confused the concepts of God's Mercy and God's Justice. Mercy applies to the present moment of our lives and means He is forgiving if we confess and are truly contrite with intentions to amend our ways. Justice means He punishes! Did not Our Lady of Fatima know that in these times the reality of hell would be doubted and the idea of performing acts of penance would be considered inconsequential? Isn't this the reason why so many souls are lost to hell because its very existence is disputed or denied! Even from the pulpit sermons on the "fear of God" and "fear of punishment or retribution" are omitted. Yet in the words of Sr. Lucia of Fatima "God did not hesitate to show hell to three children, one of whom was only seven years old". Instead of telling the truth like God, many priests now assuage the Christian communities by deliberately conveying to them that sin is basically just a human foible wherein they are truly not responsible for such weaknesses! Are we to believe that Christ died for foibles? If that be the case than we should not have had to be redeemed at all!!! Obviously, this is the pop psychology of humanists, the wrong spirit, appealing to the feelings of man and in direct opposition to the Holy Spirit!
The practice of humanism, the concern for the physical and emotional welfare of man based on a secular, worldly view upholds man's ability to resolve and remedy the ills of society through his own intellect and resourcefulness while de-emphasizing and downplaying the Creator. This is in direct contradiction to the doctrine of the true Church whose concern is the welfare of the soul. Briefly humanism could be described as a world controlled by man. In essence, humanism is a most destructive contrivance employed against the spiritual well being of man because it is a devolution that takes God's authority and places it with man. As the Lady of All Nations reminded us on February 14, 1950, first the attack was against nations creating secular governments and now the attack is "against the mind of man". Thus, She said on February 11, 1950: "The worst is that mankind itself is revolutionized"!
"There will be others to cater to the body. The Church must influence the mind" (2/14/50). When humanism is espoused from the pulpit through watered down homilies or distorted interpretations of the gospel which erronously focus on man's sensibilities and on man's need for man and not man's need for God, parishioners naturally feel accomodated and attracted to this non-threatening and appealing philosophy and ever so surely they succumb to it without even realizing it. Unfortunately and predictably, like their false shepherds of which sadly today there are many, the flock quickly develops the same irreligious attitudes relying purely on man's reasoning power and human attributes instead of humbly seeking wisdom and knowledge from God. Eventually, they fall prey to atheism, totally esteeming man not God! Almost thirty years ago Our Lord mercifully warned us of this when He said: "Understand well that knowledge does not proceed from man but from the Holy Spirit, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son. He alone gives knowledge and wisdom, for nothing takes its rise from man himself. Stand firm and let no one mislead you. I have shown you the image of the vipers. Keep it in mind" (5/31/73).
Because this deliberate indoctrination towards humanism is aided and abetted by those within the parishes for whom flattery is the next best thing to "holiness" (cf. Mt 23;5,6) and who are strategically placed in leadership positions to facilitate this agenda (i.e. parish councils, catechesis instructions, music ministries, societies, youth groups, etc.), the demoralization and spiritual decline of Catholics the world over has been devastatingly successful. To make matters worse the advancement of humanism has also been complimented by and promoted from within the parishes by those prayer groups which are entrenched in false doctrine and disseminate falsehoods causing spiritual confusion (i.e. the twice Church disapproved Medjugorje apparition groups, the non-Catholic "Refuge of Holy Love" groups, and the Fr. Gobbi "Marian" prayer cenacles about which the Vatican wrote critically alerting Catholics in late 1999 or early 2000 etc.). Whether we realize it or not, the "Abolition of Man" (cf. C.S. Lewis) is occurring right before our very eyes. "We are here in the darkness; it is the degeneration of mankind (5/7/49)...The spirit of untruth is making such appalling progress (3/4/51)...Rome...is not conscious of how it is being undermind (3/28/51)...A perverse spirit governs the world (5/10/53)...Resist the influence of the wrong spirit (4/6/52)...Listen only to those shepherds who lead you the right way (5/31/55)...Oh, you do not know what tremendous forces are threatening this world. I am now not only speaking of modern humanism, atheism, socialism, and communism; there are yet forces of quite a different nature that threaten the world...do search for the truth...(5/10/53)" (The Lady of All Nations). As St. Paul said: "For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens" [the unseen world] (Eph 6:12).
As a result of all this, most Catholics today not only do not believe in hell but they no longer really believe in God, they no longer truly trust in God and they no longer confidently pray to God; and sadly, the very image of the Supreme Being has been conceptualized and defined within their limited, finite minds according to their own image and likeness. At Akita in March of 1974, the angel reminds all of us through Sr. Agnes to "believe, trust and pray"! At Fatima, we were taught the prayer: "My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love thee"! At Amsterdam, we are reminded innumberable times: "...turn to your Creator" (11/15/51), "It is the Creator we are concerned with...Bring all nations back to their Creator" (12/31/51). The Lady, Our Mother, also warned us over and over that "their is a spirit out to undermine" us! Certainly, God Who is Mercy and Wisdom would not be sending the angels or Our Lady to remind us to "believe and trust and pray" if it weren't necessary. The increase in sin, heinous crimes and destruction today is in direct proportion to this culture's humanistic philosophy which generates into a pagan and immoral mentality, and a falling away from God. As the prayer of Amsterdam reminds us: this "degeneration breeds disaster"; this "degeneration breeds war"!
Because "mankind is not bad but weak" (cf. The Lady of All Nations: 2/14/50), they are easily misled. Ironically, and in juxtaposition to humanism, the truth of the matter is that from the health of the soul comes the health of man and society. Humanism caters to the "self"; it encourages selfishness, the very antithesis of being Christ-like. It engenders self idolatry and a society in which man wants to be "superior to those of the same identity...thinking of nothing else but self amusement" (La Salette). Consequently, true love of neighbor and real charity have disappeared and the Cross is nowhere to be found in the world! Because of this practice of humanism by apostates in the Church, the false ideas of relativism and pluralism have also taken hold which have ushered in a form of Protestantism, such as the Pentecostal or Charismatic movement and the promotion and prioritizing of "ecumenical prayer services" over the Sacrifice of the Mass. Forthwith, the sacramental character and value of the One, True Church is undermined and made to appear unnecessary while the pleasure principle of feeling good has been emphasized. Think about it. Isn't this the very reason that in most of the churches, penance as a form of punishment is also omitted or limited to a meager one or two prayers? No wonder most Catholics now consider the sacrament of Reconciliation defunct and meaningless! Because of this and the deliberate diminution of the infinite and real value of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, most Catholics are now making sacrileges Communions. Thus, Our Lady warned us at Fatima and Amsterdam. Perhaps now we will have more clarity of mind to understand in the very depths of our beings why Our Mother spoke so somberly of today when She said: "You have no idea how serious these times are" (12/8/52)! The point is that so many souls are being lost and She has "come to save souls" (2/11/51)! And again on May 31, 1955, She begged us: "Remember your sacraments. They still exist"! Basically, we are being led "down the garden path" to either a long time in Purgatory or to an eternity in Hell! "Woe to you who made this havoc" (Our Lord, December 8, 1972: Eucharistic Experience of Ida Peerdeman).
"If my people...humble themselves and pray,
and seek My presence and turn from their evil ways,
I will hear them from heaven and pardon their sins
and revive their land"
II Chronicles 7:14
On July 13, 1917 the Lady of Fatima told us that "if people do not cease offending God, a worse war will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI". She was referring to World War II and this prophetic announcement certainly did come to pass because we did not heed Our Mother's warnings. Our Lady went on to say that "God would punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father". On November 19, 1949 the Lady of All Nations said the world "must pray still more. Pray to ward off this degeneration. The whole world will destroy itself, if this is neglected". On December 7, 1947 at Amsterdam, Our Lady spoke of the possible desolation and destruction that would come to the world as a result of our sinful degeneration! Thus we will not only be punished in next life, whether it be purgatory or in the eternal fires of hell, we will also suffer and be punished here as well for "our crimes" (Dt 7:9-11; Dt 8:5,19-20)! On February 2, 1977 Our Lord cries out to the visionary Ida Peerdeman: "My sons, My sons! Why did you forsake Me? My people, My people! Why did you forsake Me? Come back to your true doctrine, within the true Church!" On May 31, 1981 Our Lady made a special appearance to Ida again saying "The Lord has sent Me to you for the last time...The time has come...Repent...Keep on praying...[for] the Spirit of Truth will save the world if you keep on imploring...I shall not leave you orphans...Please don't forsake us." Does this not sound like the last desperate plea of Our loving Lord and Mother? Do we yet realize the gravity of these times and the consequences we will have to bear for our sins? Did Our Lady of Fatima warn us, did we listen? Are we listening now?
On December 26, 1947 the Lady of All Nations alarmingly declared: "Disaster will overtake the world - from North to South, from South to West and from West to East." Then on October 1, 1949 Ida in a vision "suddenly sees the Balkans." She exclaims: "There is a war; they are fighting again." On August 15, 1950 Ida again sees the Balkans, Greece, and East Germany, at which point she hears a voice say to her: "These are the people that plan and bring about destruction to the world!" On May 7, 1949 Our Lady shows another more ominous global scene from which might arise a horrendous situation for all of us, that is if we do not change. In this vision presented to Ida Peerdeman by Our Lady, there is a view of the continents of Europe and the middle of North America. Then suddenly the focus shifts to a scene of a "multitude of Eastern peoples" to which Our Lady explains, "these he (the devil) will rouse." Then, before Ida a skull appears and Our Lady says to her: "A great disaster will occur that will startle them! The Baltic is full. You do not see that?" Are we not experiencing this critical period in the Balkans now, at this very moment, 50 years later?! Are there more serious repercussions to this crisis in the Balkans from an Eastern country? Or does this mean that someone like Sadam Hussein or Yasser Arafat will choose this moment to incur violence upon the world when we are presently distracted in the Balkans? Why is all this happening just as Our Lady predicted? Because we never listened to Her at Fatima! We must heed Our Mother's warnings now and repent; we must stop offending God now! Those of us who understand the warnings must pray with confidence and compassion, making sacrifices like never before! We must say the rosary, our great spiritual weapon; we must say the Prayer of Amsterdam, invoking the Holy Spirit of Peace to come now!
The Consecration of Russia
The "Politico-Christian" War
In addition, Our Lady of Fatima asked us to pray for the conversion of Russia. At Amsterdam Our Lady told us "Russia will try to deceive everyone in everything she does. There will be a complete revolution" (May 7, 1949). At Fatima, She asked for the Collegial Consecration of Bishops to Her Immaculate Heart which She said would result in the eventual conversion of Russia. If this was not done, the three young seers at Fatima were told, Russia would continue to spread her errors (Communism) throughout the world. On March 25, 1984 Pope John Paul II performed this consecration in union with all the bishops of the world. However, by the time this consecration was finally done properly it was late and Russia had spread her errors all over the world just as Our Lady had said she would!
Although the Lady of All Nations does say that Russia will change, for it is never too late, it will be "only after much conflict." And She emphasized "only after much conflict." At another point Our Lady stresses, in reference to Russia, : "It is not human lives alone that are involved here, but a higher power" (October 1, 1949; cf.Ephesians 6:12). What Our Lady is talking about here is the fact that we nations are not involved in a politico - economic struggle but a politico - Christian war! Remember in the former paragraph the words: "Russia will try to deceive everyone in everything she does." That is precisely what is going on now.
On January 3, 1946 "a new kind of movement" was prophesied - "a combination of Nazism and Communism." On May 31, 1976 Ida describes a symbolic depiction of the formation of just such a movement. This revelation was given to her by Our Lord. As this vision unfolds Ida sees people sleeping, a reference to their indifference, and then she hears Our Lord command: "Awake, rise and watch what has happened over your heads." Then Ida sees the cross fall into pieces before their feet. Next she relates that "these pieces were shaped into various figures before my eyes...The first figure I saw was a [masonic] triangle. Then a kind of swastika, but somewhat different. Next a hook...I saw how it [the cross] was bent to the shape of sickle...to the left something like a hammer was placed...[then] a sheaf of arrows...Then two triangles with their tops touching...like a sort of diabolo...then gallows and...figures." To this depiction, Our Lord declares: "And that is what they have made of it. But...they have dug their own graves!" Early in the year of 1999, one issue of U.S. News and World Report reported on political circumstances in Russia which might lead to a unique but frightening form of governing. In an article entitled "Is This Weimar Russia?" by Christian Caryl, the possibility of a harsher, more totalitarian form of governing in Russia similar to that of the Hitler regime was presented as a more than likely future scenario! Add to this the fact that recently the nations of Europe have united economically and militarily as a European Market just as the Lady, Our Mother, said on December 16, 1949 warning that the "aim is to corrupt the spirit". Although unpopular with the individual citizens of those nations, this move is intended to bring about a United States of Europe in which it is foreseen that Germany will be the eminent power. The military, which is expected to expand its ranks from a rather insignificant number to a proportionately greater number, falls directly under the auspices of Germany. At the same time, plans are being made to incorporate Russia via NATO into this overall scheme. Ultimately, by year 2003, the union of these powers might conceivably culminate in a new form of governing "a combination of Nazism and Communism"!
Unfortunately, today most people have lost their focus and the "hearts of many have grown cold" ( Mt 24:12) and indifferent while under their very noses a scenario of diabolical origins is being organized on a grand scale! The problem is that most people are under the delusion that since Russia threw off her dead weight, the satellite countries of the Eastern bloc, that Communism has been somehow thwarted and that Russia no longer poses a threat. But the fact is that Russia has always maintained her military and her arsenal along with her agenda. Discarding the satellite countries allowed Russia to restructure herself financially. There was no need for Russia to maintain control over the other Eastern bloc countries anyway since they will always align themselves with Russia, except maybe for Poland. Their ideologies are the same now and they are well rooted. To make matters worse, the freedom to travel in and out of the Eastern block nations allows for further dissemination of a paganistic mentality to be inculcated into societies of the Western nations. Not that Western cultures are doing so well but this influx of atheistic people from these nations is the catalyst to advance the cause of degeneration more quickly from within our societies. It is also the means by which nationalism within a country is destroyed and patriotism within the individual nations which God created becomes nullified and meaningless. Could this have been phase two of the Communist agenda? Was not peristroika all a ruse?
Did anyone ever stop and wonder why at the end of World War II was Russia, in the Yalta Conference, allowed to 'divvy up' Europe like some war time booty? Was not this sacking of Europe a deliberate step towards a grander evil scheme? Was the Yalta Conference really a double game? As a result of that era, are we now feeling the effects of a very methodical and well planned agenda? Look at the Balkans, look at Iraq, look at Afghanistan, Asia, Korea, China, Africa. Everywhere you look on the globe, Russia has spread her errors! Now look at the governments of the West. Are these leaders beginning to look and act like their counter-parts of the Eastern bloc nations?
And ponder this. At the very time Our Lady of Fatima was appearing in Portugal to three little children in 1917, there was a revolution going on to depose the imperial Czarist of Russia, and the ruling family of the Romanovs. This was done under the guise that it was a peoples' revolution when in reality it was a subversive Masonic movement, called Communism, implemented by men such as Trotsky, Lenin, and Kerensky and had been in the makings long, long before. The whole ideology of Communism emanates from Masonry whose one goal is to attain world domination by amassing the wealth of the world. Paraphrasing Cecil Rhodes, founder of the International Rhodes Scholar program, this goal is being done in collaboration with the United States and "a secret society."
Paul A. Fisher, author of the book Behind The Lodge Door, states that: "The idea that a relative handful of men have conspired for years to rule nations and the world according to their philosophy is difficult for many people to grasp." This is indeed true! But if we had listened to Our Mother's warnings at Fatima, this idea would not seem so foreign!Should we have listened to our Mother's requests back in 1917 when She asked us to consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart and to pray for the conversion of Russia? Certainly! In addition, Mr. Fisher reminds Catholics from an editorial written in L'Osservatore Romano in 1985 that the Church has long "held Masonry to be 'responsible for subversive activity' against the Church." Popes Clement XII, Benedict XIV, and Leo XIII were among some of the popes who condemned and censured it. (Incidentally, Masonry continues to be condemned by the Catholic Church; membership in such an evil organization, no matter how charitable or innocent its activities may appear, i.e. like those of the world famous Shriners, is a mortal sin according to a 1985 Declaration by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect for the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith. Interesting and rather revealing is the National Council of Catholic Bishops' new 1983 code of Canon Law, published and copyrighted in 1985, which skirts the issue in Canon 1374, although the 1917 Canon Law code explicitly condemns any affiliation with such Masonic organizations! Certainly this posture of the NCCB, in their apparent ambiguous statement of the 1983 code, is alarming since it does not conform with the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith. Does this not cause one to ponder what could be the Bishops' motivation for such a contrary position? )
On December 16, 1949 the Lady of All Nations bemoaned the plight of Her German children referring to the future Berlin Wall and the de-Christianizing of that country. But there was another serious aspect to the prophecies of the Lady of All Nations at that time. Listen to these words of Our Mother: "Take heed Germany!" Then Ida relates: "I see a triangle (the Masonic symbol) drawn over Germany and the Lady says: "The spirit of the triangle tries to enter under a different form...Poor Germany! They will be and are the dupe of that other big one (a reference to Russia)...and then somebody comes from the other jurisdiction (referring to the opposing camp of the Church). But that is for later on...Germany will attempt to extricate herself. Italy also." And on May 27, 1950: "Once again, I warn you: Catholics must work hard; a great danger is threatening. Italy will be torn in two...The opposite camp, too, is working to form as great a center as this. ("This" refers to St. Peter's in Rome.) Hard work must be done in Germany. Germany, above all, must be very alert. There is a double game being played with Germany."
Just two years prior to the Lady of All Nations' prophetic warnings for Germany, on July 23, 1947 the approval was granted for the "reactivation of the German Grand Lodge of Freemasonry" (Behind The Lodge Door). Apparently it was a priority of the Masonic movement to re-establish their secret society in Germany at the end of the Second World War in order to create a political and influential force of Freemason leaders who were politically and internationally well connected. The aim of the German branch of this "secret society" was to quietly subvert democratic societies of the West through politics, arts, sciences, education and other institutions while Russia continued to overtly perpetuate Communism in poorer, less developed nations. Thus, from East to West and West to East, the Masonic agenda would encircle the globe until full control was gained.
According to author Paul A. Fisher, "Masonic spokesmen had viewed World War II as the turning point for the Fraternity, and spoke of the 'world government' expected to be established at the conclusion of the War to help usher in a 'newer phase of evolutionary progress.'" (It is interesting to note that simultaneous to this Freemason activity in Germany, there was a parallel movement to implement the Masonic agenda in Japan through the re-introduction of Masonic lodges while under the occupation of the United States of America. Keep this in mind when reading the section entitled: The Lady of All Nations and Akita.)
What does this all point to? Obviously, it points to a collaboration of the highest degree among the world governments, united against God and the Church, with the aim of "building a center as great as" St. Peter's in Rome: a false church, a false monarch, a world government. Are not our world leaders now openly referring to this "new world order"? Is this not the very reason why we see the so called "peace keeping troops" of various nations assembled solely under the command and insignia of the United Nations? Is there really any sovereignty among nations now? Might not the current trouble in the Balkans, under the "puppet" organization of NATO, and/or some additional calamity, whether a natural or economic phenomenon, be the springboards to formerly introduce the One World Government?
Furthermore, one should consider the fact that one of the ultimate goals of the "new world order" of the Masonic agenda under the auspices of the United Nations is to reduce the world population to one billion. Does this not account for the promulgation of the contraceptive-abortion mentality throughout the world or the blatant and deliberate disregard of populations such as those of the continent of Africa which have been allowed dwindle and die through starvation and war and introduced diseases, such as AIDS? (In reference to Africa, this is particularly notable as it is a fact that the Masonic temperament is one which is also vehemently directed against the black race. Thus, on the largest scale ever in the history of humanity, one can clearly see a premeditated agenda of eugenics to wipe out, not a nation, but an entire continent of peoples because of the color of their skin! Sound familiar? Think back about 60 years ago to Nazi Germany's effort to annihilate the Jews! By the way, it should be pointed out that AIDS was not transmitted by another species such as a green vervet monkey or chimpanzee, etc. but was introduced to that continent via England from their successful germ experimentation where AIDS was created by scientists in British laboratories circa 1950. AIDS is not a zoonose, although it is a virus! A zoonose is a virus or bacterium that can be transmitted from animals to humans and vice versa. Zoonoses include such viruses as rabies and the common cold. In 1947 did not the Lady of All Nations warn us of the terrible germ experimentations and research as part of germ warfare strategy! "Nations be warned.") Is not the devil's work about destroying life and souls and the glory that belongs to God? Can we not see clearly what is going on at this very moment before our very eyes?!
The "double game" Our Lady refers to is no longer just being played out in Germany; it is now being orchestrated by other world leaders to deceive the peoples of all nations! Obviously the enemy has been working long and hard towards the success of their goal. If only we had listened to the Lady of Fatima; if only we would listen to the Lady of All Nations! As Our Lady said at Amsterdam, the enemy has been at work for a long time and making many sacrifices for their cause; we must must work harder and realize the "gravity of these times!" We must pray; pray hard and make many sacrifices! For "this is the spiritual battle that is being carried on all over the world. It is much worse than the actual wars now being waged, because it is undermining mankind" (January 3, 1946).
Simultaneouly, while all this preparatory work is going on within the governments of the world, there is within the Catholic Church the ongoing work of the apostasy as has been previously referred to. It is important to reiterate at this point that the apostasy does not consists only of the faithful who have fallen away but it also refers to those who have infiltrated the Church under the guise of fellow Catholic faithful whether they be priests, theologians or lay instructors of the faith. How does this apostasy affect the Church? It creates false concepts which obscure the divine origins of the Church; it encourages apathy among the lay faithful by diminishing the importance and the reality of the sacraments; it builds up a parallel church insidiously and methodically undermining the True Church with an eye towards eventually destroying the true Church - the Catholic Church.
Back in 1820 Blessed Catherine Emmerick said: "I saw a strange church being built against every rule...In that Church nothing came from on high. There was only division and chaos. It was probably a church of human creation...I saw again the strange big church that was being built there in Rome. There was nothing holy in it... Everything was being done according to human reason...There was something presumptuous, proud and violent about it; and they seemed to be very successful. I did not see a single angel nor a single saint helping in the work. But far away in the background, I saw the seat of a cruel people armed with spears, and I saw a laughing figure which said: 'Do build it as solid as you can; we will pull it to the ground'." On May 27,1950 the Lady of All Nations, pointing to St. Peter's in Rome, tells Ida: "Italy will be torn in two. The opposite camp, too, is working to form as great a center as this." And on August 15, 1950 the Lady of All Nations warns us: "This is the age of politico-Christian warfare...A monarch will reign, very briefly and powerfully." (cf. Rev.:17:12) Throughout the messages the Lady of All Nations forewarns Rome to be on the alert. Thus, we can understand what is meant by Our Lady of La Salette in 1846 when She referred to a "frightful crisis" in the Church. However, we must not forget that it is "Pagan Rome", the apostate or false church, that "will disappear" as Our Lady of La Salette said, not the One, True Church!
Now you might be wondering how does the apostasy and the Masonic agenda of the Communist government of Russia and other nations have anything to do with each other. The fact is they are of the same false spirit and they have the same agenda and that is to form the "one world government," the " monarch [which] will reign, very briefly and very powerfully." "Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God" (2Thess 2:3-4). "And the ten horns that you saw are the ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast. These are united in yielding their power and authority to the beast" (Rev 17:12-13).
This same thought was expressed by Our Lady at La Salette, France in 1846: "All civil governments will have one and the same plan, which will be to abolish and do away with every religious principal, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and vice of all kinds...There will be a series of wars until the last war, which will then be fought by the ten kings of the anti-Christ, all of whom will have one and the same plan and will be the only rulers of the world. Before this comes to pass, there will be a kind of false peace in the world. People will think of nothing but amusement. The wicked will give themselves over to all kinds of sin..." On March 25, 1977, Ida was given a vision by God in which she counted stones, representing the Ten Commandments, which were "trampled and crushed." As in Moses' time the nations "have spurned the God Who made them and scorned their saving Rock" (Deut. 32:15, cf. Wis. 1to 6). The nations have forgotten just as in olden times from Whom they have received their heritage, the Most High, the "Lord of All Nations" (May 31, 1958, cf. Ps. 47). (This title of Our Lord is not to be confused or associated with another current heretical organization using a title similar to this.)
The Key to the Victory of Her Immaculate Heart:
The Last Marian Dogma
At Fatima Our Lady told us that Her Immaculate Heart will triumph. She also said that "God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to your is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace" (cf. The Lady of All Nations, May 31, 1957). At Amsterdam, Mary gives us the key to the triumph of Her Heart which is the quintessence of devotion to and recognition of Her Immaculate Heart, namely that of the dogma of The Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate under Her biblical title as Mother of All Nations (Gn. 17:15-16; Ps.87) which upholds with great esteem and honor Her Most Loving and Motherly Heart. By proclaiming the dogma of the Lady of All Nations which defines The Most Perfect Mother, we Her children will effectively be aligning our hearts in Spiritual Oneness with the heart of Our Mother which is and always has been united in Spiritual Oneness with Her Son's Most Sacred Heart (cf. Theotokos, Lk 1:28).
On December 26, 1947 amidst visions of "misery and distress" "a large key" suddenly appears in the seer's hand which she lets fall over the war torn area of the globe. On March 20, 1953 the Lady of All Nations says, "Great powers will be overthrown...And now 'the Lady of All Nations' promises to grant true peace to all nations. But the nations together with the Church...will have to say My Prayer in that year." On May 31, 1955 the Lady of All Nations asks: "Has the world lost its bearings? Well then, nations, put your trust in your Mother, Who has never yet forsaken Her children. She, 'the Lady of All Nations,' is allowed to come to you under this new title: Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate. Why do you not ask your Holy Father to pronounce the dogma the Lady demands?...Once the dogma has been pronounced, 'the Lady of All Nations' will give Her blessing...Then 'the Lady of All Nations' will bestow peace. She will help you when this dogma has been proclaimed." At Fatima, Our Lady promised salvation to those who embrace Her Immaculate Heart. She said "these souls will be loved by God, like flowers placed by me to adorn His throne." She also promised as a result there would be an era of peace!
On May 31, 1978 Our Lord in His Eucharistic Presence instructs the Pope: "My servant Peter, take the golden thread once more and open the door with that key," referring to the dogma of the Lady of All Nations. On August 15, 1979 Our Lord again directs the Pope: "My Peter, bring the glorified Lady - 'the Lady of All Nations' into your churches. She will lead the nations to 'Her Lord.'" And on October 7, 1978 Our Lord declares: "This is the Victory of Her Whom I have sent!"
Let us not wait "for the moment when something dreadful happens" before proclaiming Our Mother as the Lady of All Nations: Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. " Let us proclaim to the world with deepest love and affection just how much we love Mary, Our Mother. Let us, like Our Lord and Brother Jesus, announce to the world: "Behold Thy Mother!" "The time is Now!"
A Time For Change
The important point to remember about Fatima is that Our Lady said: "In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph." "The outcome is already assured" (April 29, 1951)! But how long will we delay in becoming devoted children of Our Mother and at what cost to our own souls and the souls of those whom we love? Did not Our Lady of Fatima say "Pray, pray very much and make sacrifices for sinners; for many souls go to hell and their are none who sacrifice themselves and pray for sinners?" Would Our Mother ask for our prayers if they did not make a difference? It is a fact that if we had heeded Our Mother's words at Fatima many souls could have been saved and World War II could have been averted! We are responsible for all our brothers and sisters in Christ! There will be consequences to our inactions! However, if we respond by doing as Our Mother asked at Fatima and Amsterdam then we shall see sooner, a better world for ourselves and our children; we shall see many souls saved and the conversion of the world and the era of peace!
Unlike any other time in the Judeo-Christian history has man scorned God and neighbor in such an unprecedented sinful manner, that if it weren't for Our Mother, the Lady of All Nations, standing with Her feet firmly planted on this world "an oblation before the cross" surely man's hope of salvation would be dashed! Isn't this what She meant at Fatima when She said "She holds back the hand of Her Son" (cf. The Third Secret; messages at La Salette, Akita and Amsterdam)? God has made a covenant with us and we have broken it. "He is mindful of His covenant forever, of the word that He commanded, for a thousand generations" (Ps 105:8; Deut 7:9). But, we are not mindful of that covenant! We must humbly recognize Our Creator, the very reason for our existence. God is a merciful God, but He is, also, the Just Judge Who will pour out His justice from which "all the wicked of the earth shall drink" (Ps 75:9; Deut 7:10-11). We have made this world as wicked and sinful as it is; we can not afford to ignore the warnings of Our Lady. "For the world is tottering...a few more years and it would perish...He [the Holy Spirit] is coming. He will put the world in order, but THEY MUST LISTEN" (October 7, 1945, The Lady of All Nations).
We are a society which no longer honors God nor keeps His Commandments. We either shop or work on the sabbath and habitually look to amuse ourselves and as Our Lady said at La Salette we "give [ourselves] over to all kinds of sin." We are so perverse that we even murder our unborn children! There is such an arrogance and coldness within the minds and hearts of men that they are indifferent to the consequences of their actions. Man is consumed with "self-love, insatiable greed and a lust for power" (The Youngest Prophet). He has displaced God! There is no true happiness or contentment in this type of existence just a "constant state of disharmony, disorder and dissatisfaction" (The Youngest Prophet) leading to "degeneration, disasters and war!" Without the Ten Commandments, without The Cross, without Love man can not live!
"The world is caught up in degeneration and superficiality. It is at a loss" (April 29, 1951). "It is a time such as the world has not experienced in centuries..."(March28, 1951). Yet it is never too late. (Read Psalms 51 and 130 and Pope John Paul II's Encyclical: "Dives in Misericordia.") "No matter what sins you have committed, how negligent or ungrateful you may have been, how long it is since you sincerely repented, the mercy of God still calls you...It is His will in these days to personify His mercy through the Immaculate Heart" (The Youngest Prophet by Fr. Christopher Rengers).
Our Mother's Immaculate Heart will be victorious. Go to Mary, Our Mother, and ask for Her help and you will be a part of that victory! It is not an easy thing to change but Mary, Our Mother, will aid us, continually and without ceasing, to carry the cross. "For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant; later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it" (Heb 12:11). We must say Her Prayer and hold on to Her hand and never let go! It is She who brings us to The Cross, The Cross of Redemption! She is The Hope of Our Salvation! She will guide us back to the "steadfast love of the Lord." She will help us to "keep His covenant and [to] remember to do His commandments" (Ps 103:17,18).
Our Mother has given us great hope. At Fatima, She reminds us of Her Eternal and Loving Motherhood over us; She has said that Her Immaculate Heart will always be our refuge. But we must first recognize Our Mother and become Her devoted children as Our Lord asked us to do in 1917. In other words, we must unite our hearts to Hers and live the First and Great Commandment of Love. In so doing, we will become like Our Mother, good Christians who in Spiritual Oneness will love and honor Her Son's Most Sacred Heart. As always Our Mother asks us to pray the Rosary, to make sacrifices for one another, to pray for priests and vocations and as always She beckons us to Her Son in the Most Holy Eucharist.
At Fatima, She requests that we pray for the Victory of Her Immaculate Heart. At Amsterdam, She gives us the key to that Victory: the Dogma of the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate as The Lady of All Nations. As a result,"She will vanquish Satan, as has been foretold...She will grant peace, true peace to the world...and She will lead the nations back to Her Lord." She has given us all that we shall ever need. What are we waiting for? Let us work quickly and waste no time. Let us obey and love Our Mother and proclaim Her, The Mother of All Nations: Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate! We have everything to gain. Really, it is all up to us now!
