April 2022: Fatima And the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
With the recent actions in Rome by George Bergoglio aka Antipope Francis, We have decided to weigh in on this matter. Twice we have said that Fatima is a distraction, because much effort has been wasted on Fatima. Much more is being wasted right now debating whether or not Bergoglio's consecration was done properly. This can be set aside with one simple statement, an Antipope cannot perform a consecration properly.
A decade ago We were sent a book, False Friends of Fatima. After reading it We realized that the author is also a false friend of Fatima, although he provided one very useful piece of information.
"In the end my immaculate heart will triumph." Has anyone ever stopped to consider what Mary will triumph over? Before the seventh Psalm on some Marian feasts, including the Annunciation (March 25) we pray: "Joy to thee, * O Virgin Mary, thou hast trampled down all the heresies in the whole world." The real enemy of souls is heresy, and heresy is one of the errors of Russia no one talks about. In fact, Communism has been condemned by Pope Pius XI as apostasy. Does anyone ever talk about that?
First of all We will most likely never see the Third Secret of Fatima, so let's stop looking for it. There are only a few things we actually can know about it. We should also set aside the Secret of La Sallette, because it is easy to prove every one of them false, and it has been placed on the Index of Prohibited Books. So let us stop looking for secrets.
Let us consider what Mary actually said: "You have seen hell where the souls of sinners go. To save them, the Lord wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If you do what I shall tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is about to end, but if men do not cease to offend God there will begin a worse one in the Pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign that God gives you that the punishment of the world is at hand for its so great sins by means of war, famine and persecution directed against the Church and the Holy Father. To prevent this I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of reparation on the first Saturdays of the month. If my demands are listened to Russia will be converted and there will be peace. Otherwise Russia will spread her errors throughout the world arousing wars and persecutions of the Church. Many good men will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me; Russia will be converted and there will be some peace.
"But, finally, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. Consecration to my Immaculate Heart will take place, Russia will be converted and a time of peace will be given to the world. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me; Russia will be converted and there will be some peace."
Let us take this point at a time. "If my demands are listened to Russia will be converted and there will be peace" Mary's demands were not met, so we get option B: "Otherwise Russia will spread her errors throughout the world arousing wars and persecutions of the Church. Many good men will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph." Russia has spread her errors and all of this is being fulfilled.
"The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me; Russia will be converted and there will be some peace." On June 13, 1929 Lucia received the following, which is paraphrased: "Now is the time for the Pope in union with all the bishops of the world." As requested on the afternoon of July 16, 1990, We consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart. We repeated this again on August 22, 1992 and again on the day after Our coronation in 2011.
What people are hoping for is that the consecration will be made and by some miracle the world will convert. Saint John Eudes, commenting on the Magnificat, says: "All the holy Fathers 1 agree that after the death of antichrist the whole world will be converted, and although some of them assert that the world will last but a few days after his death, while others say a few months, some authorities insist that it will continue to exist many years after. St. Catherine of Sienna, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Francis of Paula and a number of other saints have predicted this ultimate universal conversion." And so after Antichrist there will be a conversion of the world, and therefore also Russia.
Reading what Mary said, we had two options, stop sinning or we get another World War. We already know we did not stop sinning and the air is literally filled with sin today. We got World War II. The period of peace appears to come instead of World War II between 1930 and 1960, when the Third Secret will become clearer. Lucia told Cardinal Ottaviani in 1955 this is why the Secret should be revealed.
Let us return to the book, False Friends of Fatima. It reports that in early 1959 Lucia asked her superiors for permission to talk to the world about Fatima. Allow Us some speculation. Had the Third Secret become clearer at this time? Did it warn about Vatican II? The Papacy was usurped by Antipope John XXIII on October 28, 1958 after something happened two days before, which caused confusion in the world. White smoke rose, but no one appeared to give a papal blessing. United Press International reported that Cardinal Ottaviani had been elected as Pope.
What we have is a timeline. Fatima May to October 1917. The October Revolution in November of that year, because Russia was still on the Julian calendar. So Communism was planted in Russia after Fatima. We have the request for the consecration in 1929. We did not stop sinning, so we got World War II. The consecration was not made as requested, so we never got the period of peace. By 1960 things were getting far worse, Vatican II had been summoned. By 1963, the Bishops in attendance at Vatican II signed the heretical decree on the liturgy. (This will be discussed in next month's Pope Speaks) As a result under the principles of the Ordinary Magisterium as presented in Canon 188, paragraph 4, all of the Bishops who signed and tenderd their resignation from Office, including Archbishop Lefebvre, Bishop de Castro Meyer, Bishop Ngo-Dihn Thuc and Father (consecrated in 1960) Mendez.
"Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that cleaveth to me, saith the Lord of hosts: strike the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn my hand to the little ones." (Zacharias (Zechariah) 13:7) The Pope is the shepherd of the Church and the Bishops are the sheep. The faithful are lambs.
The prophet Isaias warns us: "And they that remain of the trees of his forest shall be so few, that they shall easily be numbered, and a child shall write them down." (Isaias 10:19) This is where we are, the Bishops scattered almost six decades ago and the Spirit of Vatican II created a new church under Paul VI and his successors.
And so what should we do now? "No, I say to you: but unless you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:3) A footnote in the Douay-Rheims defines penance: "Which word, according to the use of the scriptures and the holy fathers, does not only signify repentance and amendment of life, but also punishing past sins by fasting, and such like penitential exercises." In the Vulgate the word for penance is also translated in some places as repent. What do we need to know about Fatima? "Go, and now sin no more." (John 8:11) And We do not have to read the Secret of Fatima to know this. This is from Jesus Himself, and the message remains the same today almost two thousand years later.
