Approaching the 100th Anniversary of Fatima: Peril and Promise

 

100 yearsIn 1776 our nation declared its independence from Great Britain. As it happens, in that same year an historian in Europe named Alexander Fraser Tyler offered a warning that has become highly relevant to America’s future. In researching his book The Decline and Fall of the Athenian Empire, Tyler discovered a pattern or cycle in the rise and fall of societies and nations. The cycle is as follows: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from great courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; and from dependency back again to bondage.

 

Tyler discovered from his study of history that the average length of time for this cycle to unfold was approximately 200 years. America has so far exceeded this time frame by almost four decades—but, as should be obvious to any knowledgeable observer, the United States is nearing the end of this cycle. Examples of the steadily growing numbers of Americans dependent on government subsidies and handouts, and of the increasing threats to our political and religious freedoms, are too numerous to mention here; suffice it to say that the Founding Fathers would be appalled at many of the conditions in today’s society that we’ve come to take for granted. For most of her history, America was indeed a “shining light on a hill,” inspiring millions of poor and oppressed persons throughout the world to leave their homelands and come here to hope and work for a better life for themselves and their families. God’s blessing was indeed upon our country, resulting in unprecedented freedom, security, and prosperity. For the last half-century or so, however, we’ve been squandering our patrimony, rejecting our national heritage, and racing toward moral bankruptcy—and the day of reckoning is fast approaching.

 

Historical Dates and Coincidences 

There are many interesting “coincidences” in history; these involve significant dates and patterns which become apparent only in retrospect. For instance, in 1689 Jesus instructed St. Margaret Mary Alacoque to ask King Louis XIV of France to dedicate his kingdom His Sacred Heart. Our Lord promised that this act would ensure peace and prosperity for the kingdom, but warned that a failure to obey would lead to calamity. The king ignored this message, and exactly one century later the violent and disastrous French Revolution broke out, resulting in the overthrow of the monarchy, the persecution of the Church in France, and great hardships for most of the French people. (Continuing this 100 year cycle, 1889 saw the birth of Adolf Hitler, one of history’s most murderous and destructive tyrants; 1989, however, marked the peaceful disintegration of Soviet rule in Eastern Europe and the liberation of millions of persons—a demonstration of God’s power to intervene decisively in human history on behalf of His people.)

 

Further examples of historical coincidences can be found in the many important dates in World War II that occurred on Marian feast days: for instance, the British defeated the German aerial assault known as the Battle of Britain on September 15, 1940—the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows; the United States declared on Japan on December 8, 1941 (one day after the Pearl Harbor attack)—the Feast of the Immaculate Conception; the atomic bomb was tested in the New Mexico desert on July 16, 1945—the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel; and after their cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed by atomic bombs, the Japanese agreed to surrender on August 15, 1945—the feast of Our Lady’s Assumption.

 

More ominously, an “unholy” or diabolical historical pattern can be found in these three years: 1517, 1717, and 1917—each of which represents a major assault on the unity and authority of the Catholic Church. 1517 marked the beginning of the so-called Protestant “Reformation,” which tragically divided Western Christianity even to this day. In 1717 the secret society commonly known as Freemasonry was officially established—an organization that, in conjunction with the Illuminati, has consistently denigrated, opposed, and worked to infiltrate and undermine Catholicism. (Most members of Masonry see only the fraternal and charitable activities it uses to disguise its true nature, and are unaware of its diabolical origin and purpose. The Church, however, has never been deceived in this regard; the popes have officially condemned Freemasonry over 200 times, and Catholics are still forbidden to join the Masons.)

 

1917, of course, was the year of horrific Russian Revolution, which overthrew the tsarist government and imposed the world’s first communist regime upon the long-suffering Russian people. Shortly before this event, Our Lady warned at Fatima that Russia would “spread her errors” throughout the world—a prophecy that was tragically fulfilled. The rise of communism, and the spread of abortion (first legalized on a widespread scale in the former Soviet Union) helped make the 20th century the bloodiest in world history; religious believers in particular were imprisoned, tortured, and murdered by the millions—and even after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, communism continues to enslave and oppress untold numbers throughout the world.

 

A Tragic 40th Anniversary

As even a cursory examination shows, there are important numerical patterns to be discovered in history—and that raises an obvious question: are there any historical patterns or cycles with the potential to affect us here in the United States in the immediate future? One obvious example immediately comes to mind: the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. On January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court in effect invalidated all federal and state laws protecting unborn children from abortion—resulting in the slaughter of (so far) over 57 million innocent and defenseless human beings in their mothers’ wombs.

 

As it happens, forty is a highly-significant biblical number. At the time of the Great Flood, for example, it rained for forty days and forty nights. The patriarch Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah. For forty years the Israelites ate manna in the desert. Moses spent forty days and forty nights in the presence of God on Mount Sinai. King David reigned for forty years; the prophet Elijah walked for forty days and nights when summoned by God to Mount Horeb. Jonah warned the Ninevites that their city would be destroyed in forty days unless they repented. Finally, Jesus fasted in the desert for forty days and nights before His public ministry, and after His Resurrection, appeared to the apostles and taught them over the course of forty days before ascending to Heaven.

 

Thus, we see that the number forty can represent not only a time of grace and divine favor, but also a period of testing and preparation; this biblical number can also stand for both an opportunity for repentance, and—if necessary—a time of punishment, chastisement, and cleansing. Can any faithful Catholic seriously doubt that our country is about to experience divine judgment for its many sins against human life and dignity? Will the cries of over 55 million martyrs in the womb be unheard by God, or go unavenged? In regard to abortion, our nation has been rebelliously wandering in the wilderness of sin and abomination for more than four decades now. The Lord said of the Israelites in the desert, “Forty years I loathed that generation. . . . Therefore I swore in My anger: They shall not enter into My rest” (Ps. 95:10-11). Our sins of murder in the womb, along with other forms of violence, sexual immorality, arrogance, greed, and idolatry, are far greater than the transgressions of ancient Israel. Can we honestly expect that America will somehow be exempt from divine judgment and justice?

 

In several contemporary alleged private revelations, Jesus and Mary warn that unless our nation soon repents and ceases its war on the unborn, Our Lord Himself will directly intervene to bring an end to abortion in our country. (Some revelations suggest this will occur through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe.) Can we reasonably hope, in light of our national willingness to flout divine law, that such an intervention will involve a minimum of pain and disruption? Will the horrible and corrosive effects of over forty years of legalized murder in the womb be overcome quickly and easily? Rather than celebrating the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade (as many Americans did), this ominous and malignant milestone should have prompted all Americans to reflect on the words of Thomas Jefferson, who warned, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just [and] that His justice cannot sleep forever. . . .”

 

Coming Chastisements

Scripture tells us that “The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, but the dwelling of the just He blesses; when He is dealing with the arrogant, He is stern, but to the humble He shows kindness” (Prv. 3:34). On this basis, America is certainly at risk of imminent divine judgment. Many alleged messages and private revelations warn of various coming chastisements, and one of these possible punishments, if and when it occurs, is rooted in an event that occurred over 100 years ago.

 

Legislation establishing the Federal Reserve was signed into law on December 23, 1913. Several years before this, a select group of important government officials, wealthy industrialists, and influential financiers met in the greatest secrecy at Jekyll Island in Georgia to lay the groundwork for a central bank—an act clearly contrary to the wishes and advice of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and other Founding Fathers. Indeed, the Constitution, in Article I, Section 8, reserves to Congress the power to coin money and regulate its value—but a stated purpose of the Federal Reserve System is to regulate economic cycles by expanding or contracting the quantity of money and credit. Moreover, contrary to popular belief, the Federal Reserve is not a branch of the U.S. government, but an independent (i.e., privately owned) bank operating without accountability to the American people and their representatives. All recent legislative efforts to provide for an audit of the Fed, as it’s called, have been quashed; as one commentator noted, we know more about the structure and operation of the CIA (the highly secretive Central Intelligence Agency) than we do about the Federal Reserve.

 

This unconstitutional state of affairs might be more tolerable if the Fed were indeed successfully protecting the value of our currency and aiding the growth and expansion of the national economy—but the opposite is the case, as witnessed by the fact that since the Federal Reserve was established in 1913, the U.S. dollar has lost roughly 95% of its purchasing power. In light of the huge government “bailouts” of the banking industry and other private companies, the wasteful “stimulus” spending and pork-barrel projects, an unimaginably gigantic and ever-growing national debt (one far too large ever to be repaid), the financial “time-bomb” of growing unfunded future liabilities in the Social Security and Medicare programs, out-of-control government spending resulting in annual deficits of more than $1 trillion, increasing difficulty in finding purchasers for government debt instruments (needed for the 40 cents of every dollar of government spending provided by borrowing), and the likely imminent loss of the dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency (causing a major rise in prices for all foreign-made products purchased by American consumers), this trend of an ever-weakening dollar can only continue—and will likely accelerate. Furthermore, in 1971—a bit over 40 years ago—the United States went off the gold standard, making the dollar a fiat (paper) currency with no intrinsic value. This fact is highly ominous and significant because there is no case in history of an unbacked, or paper, currency retaining its value over the long run.

 

Today an increasing number of financial commentators and experts are warning of the very real danger of hyperinflation—a sudden and unstoppable downward spiral in the value of the dollar, in which the savings of a lifetime can be rendered worthless literally overnight. This phenomenon occurred in post-World War I Germany (where a wheelbarrow-full of money was eventually needed just to purchase a loaf of bread), and led to vast social disruption and widespread economic impoverishment (while helping set the stage for the rise of Hitler’s Nazi party). If and when hyperinflation comes to the United States, all dollar-denominated financial instruments (including bank accounts, pensions, annuities, IRAs, insurance policies, stock market portfolios and similar investments, and other paper assets) will rapidly lose their value, leaving the majority of Americans who lack hard assets (gold, silver, stockpiles of food and water, and various other items or skills suitable for bartering) in an untenable economic condition.

 

In such a crisis, the government will likely continue issuing Social Security checks and other welfare payments, technically fulfilling its obligations—but these will lose all monetary value. With roughly half our nation’s citizens currently receiving or dependent on some form of government assistance, and many other Americans living paycheck to paycheck, state and local social agencies and private or religious charitable organizations will quickly be overwhelmed. As the economy collapses, widespread rioting, looting, and other forms of crime and violence can be expected. Martial law may be imposed—but it’s also possible that a federal government unable to pay its debts will no longer be able to maintain a large and effective military force, leaving us vulnerable to our enemies.

 

Due in no small measure to the creation of the Federal Reserve just over 100 years ago, the way of life to which most Americans have become accustomed may very likely soon be ending. A coming economic collapse and its probable consequences—including societal disintegration, a breakdown in morality and normal standards of behavior, a degraded ability on the part of society to care for the poor and the victims of natural disasters, growing vulnerability to foreign enemies and domestic terrorists, and the imposition of martial law with its accompanying loss of political and civic liberty—may in fact be part of the chastisement God imposes upon a sinful and rebellious nation. Our Heavenly Father is concerned not with our well-being and comfort in this life, but with our eternal salvation—and if chastisements of this sort are the only way millions of people will turn back to Him, we as a nation leave Him little choice but to impose or allow them. The Lord does not necessarily have to inflict punishment upon us; He need only withdraw His protection from America (as several alleged messages suggest He has already done)—and then the already-planted seeds of destruction will bear their poisonous fruit.

 

Approaching the 100th Anniversary of Fatima

fatimaWhile one hundred is not necessarily a biblical number to the same degree that forty is, this number nevertheless has a certain significance. Civilizations and historians often measure the passage of time in terms of centuries, and a one hundred-year period can represent an important stage in the unfolding of God’s plan (as in the example mentioned above, in which Louis XVI of France was overthrown and later executed exactly one century after his great-grandfather Louis XIV ignored a message from Heaven). In this light, we might look upon 2017—the 100th anniversary of the Fatima apparitions—as something of a milestone, or deadline, for humanity and for the Church.

 

The famous mystical experience of Pope Leo XIII—in which, during a trance, he heard Jesus—in response to Satan’s boast that within a hundred years he could destroy the Church—grant the devil a century of increased power to unleash his assault—occurred on October 13, 1884. (It was immediately after this revelation—in which Our Lord also promised that the Church would emerge from this trial more glorious than ever—that Pope Leo composed the famous Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.) In retrospect, it’s obvious this “century of peril” didn’t actually begin immediately (perhaps because Leo’s successor, Pope St. Pius X, won a delay, or breathing space, for the Church due to his vigorous opposition to the heresy of Modernism). A number of expert commentators suggest the century of increased satanic power began immediately after the last of Our Lady’s apparitions at Fatima—and in fact, Our Lady’s final appearance there occurred on October 13, 1917—exactly 33 years after Pope Leo’s vision (with 33, of course, representing the number of years of Our Lord’s earthly life).

 

If this theory is correct—and it makes sense in light of the fact that just a few weeks after October 13, 1917, the calamitous Russian Revolution occurred (following Our Lady’s revelation to the three shepherd children that, if the world did not repent, Russia would be God’s chosen instrument to chastise sinful nations)—then the time of Satan’s power as the “prince of this world” (Jn. 12:31; 14:30; 16:11) is rapidly drawing to a close. This would, of course, be reason to celebrate—except for the fact that Russia has seemingly not yet been consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the manner Our Lady requested at Fatima. This is an urgent matter because Our Lord revealed to Sr. Lucia, one of the Fatima visionaries, that, as a way of honoring His Mother’s Immaculate Heart, He would not bring about the promised era of peace until this had been done.

 

(The question of whether in fact the requested consecration has taken place is certainly a controversial one, with learned and sincere adherents on both sides of the issue. Rather than exploring it in depth, let us focus on two simple facts. First, Pope John Paul II’s consecration of March 25, 1984 did not mention Russia specifically, but instead referred to “those whose act of dedication you too await in a particular way”—a veiled reference to Russia, indicating the Holy Father’s awareness that Our Lady’s request was still to be fulfilled. Second, if that consecration did in fact meet Heaven’s conditions, then we should already be experiencing a “certain period of period” as promised by Our Lady at Fatima—and yet no one can credibly make such a claim. Following the miraculous imprint of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on St. Juan Diego’s tilma in 1531—a miracle involving only a few direct witnesses—some eight million Mexican Indians converted to Catholicism within the next decade. Isn’t it reasonable to assume that the far-more spectacular “Miracle of the Sun” witnessed by 70,000 persons as a validation of Our Lady’s Fatima messages would—once the requested consecration of Russia had been accomplished—bring about even greater results than occurred in 16th century Mexico?)

 

kidsThe part of the “Third Secret” of Fatima revealed in 2000 describes a vision of a “bishop dressed in white” (an unspecified future pope) being killed by a band of soldiers using bullets and arrows, along with the murder of many other bishops, priests, and lay persons. A reasonable interpretation is that this refers to Pope Francis, should he fail to perform the required consecration in time. (The act of consecration performed by the Holy Father earlier this month undoubtedly has great spiritual value, but once again, there was no specific mention of Russia, as the Blessed Mother requested.) What do we mean by “in time”? Very simply, the consecration must be performed before it becomes physically impossible to do so—perhaps because of widespread natural disasters, persecution of the Church, a schism (in which many bishops disobey the Pope), or even the sudden (though brief) resurgence and triumph of communism throughout much of the world. It’s reasonable to assume that 2017—the 100th anniversary of the Fatima apparitions and messages—represents a firm deadline in this regard, with horrendous results in store for the world, and the Church itself, should a century pass without obedience to Our Lady’s request.

 

Fortunately, Our Lady had predicted during her apparition of July 13, 1917 that “in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.” This good news does not automatically mean, however, that in the meantime all potential dangers will be averted. According to Sr. Lucia, in 1931 the Lord told her, “They [the Holy Father and his advisors] did not want to heed My request. Like the King of France [Louis XVI], they will repent and do so, but it will be late [emphasis added]. Russia will already have spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The Holy Father will have much to suffer!” A few years after the French Revolution broke out in 1789, Louis XVI attempted from his prison cell to consecrate France to the Sacred Heart, but the deadline had passed—and so this sincere but belated attempt did not spare him from the loss of first his throne and then his life. Likewise, if the Holy Father waits until after 2017 to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart, there may well be unnecessarily tragic consequences for the Church and for humanity as a whole.

 

What Can We Expect, and What Can We Do?

These next few months and years will likely be among the most fateful ones in history not only for the United States of America, but also for the world, and for the Church. Many recent alleged prophecies and messages speak of important events that may very well be imminent. For instance, the visionaries of Medjugorje have each supposedly received ten secrets from Our Lady, many of which—in line with the overriding theme of an urgent need for repentance, prayer, and sacrifice—apparently foretell potential chastisements. Even more precisely, the alleged visionaries of Garabandal were told back in the early 1960s of a future, worldwide spiritual event called the Warning (in which each person on earth would simultaneously see the state of his or her soul, and know whether, if he or she were to die at that moment, heaven, hell, or purgatory would be merited), followed by another heaven-sent event called the Miracle (which would occur in Spain in the vicinity of Garabandal). Other alleged messages have also since spoken of these events, whose purpose will be to prompt vast numbers of conversions. Only if the majority of humanity refuses to repent will a great chastisement (commonly identified as the Three Days of Darkness) be necessary to cleanse the earth of sin and usher in the era of peace (that is, the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart).

 

Mari Loli, one of the Garabandal visionaries (who died in 2009), is said to have stated on several occasions that the Warning will occur in an even-numbered year. Jesus has allegedly revealed to visionary John Leary that the Warning will take place during the American football season, and Irish mystic Christina Gallagher claims to have been told by heaven that it will occur some year during the month of February (which, in fact, is when the football season ends with the Super Bowl). Moreover, the visionaries of Garabandal have stated quite explicitly that the Miracle will occur within one year of the Warning, and will take place on a Thursday in either March, April, or May (on the 8th through the 16th of the month). Additionally, it’s believed there will be much suffering, disruption, and turmoil throughout the world—presumably including financial difficulties, famines, natural disasters, epidemics, wars, a schism in the Church, religious persecution, and a sudden but temporary victory of communism—before the Warning occurs. While it’s probably impossible to construct an exact timeline, we might tentatively speculate that the Warning may occur in February 2016. The exact year would, of course, be based on the pace of events—for prayers, sacrifices, and acts of reparation (especially Masses of Reparation) can mitigate and delay coming chastisements, thereby potentially shortening the time of peril leading up the era of peace.

 

What should we do to prepare for such coming events? Five suggestions come to mind. First of all, stay (or become) informed about the signs of the times. The mainstream media (and even talk radio) will be of limited help in this regard (other than providing an occasional piece of the puzzle). Instead, read and subscribe to magazines such as Signs & Wonders and The Fatima Crusader (and share them with others), and use websites such as sign.org. Also, look for good Catholic and Christian books that can give you a better perspective on the times in which we live. (Several good examples would be The Thunder of Justice, by Ted and Maureen Flynn; Suddenly and Unexpectedly, by T. Michael Fahy; The Harbinger, by Jonathan Cahn; and my own Spiritual Dangers of the 21st Century and Defiance!)

 

Secondly, make prudent material preparations in case of an economic collapse. This especially means storing several months’ worth of food and water, along with other needed material items. However, this must be done in a spirit of trust, not fear. The Lord has promised in many alleged messages that as long as we’ve made some minimal preparations, and assuming we’re willing to share what we have with those in need, He will multiply our provisions, if necessary.

 

Thirdly, obtain sacramentals and other needed religious items, including Bibles, prayer books, holy water, blessed salt, St. Benedict medals, scapulars, religious pictures, and the like. These can be a source of reassurance and spiritual protection—but they may not be readily available in the future (especially if, as many alleged prophecies state, a schism in the Church and a religious persecution occur in the next few years).

 

Fourthly, network with other faithful Catholics who believe as you do. Form prayer groups; share ideas and discuss current events in the world and the Church; and, if possible, ask you pastor or another priest you know to offer Masses of Reparation for the sins of our nation. (Over 250 such Masses are offered for this intention throughout our country on the third Monday of each month at 7pm EST—though, of course, they can be held at any convenient time. According to some alleged private revelations, these Masses have already mitigated or delayed some chastisements and resulted in many conversions.)

 

Lastly, live the message of Fatima—by praying (especially the Rosary) for the conversion of sinners, by doing penance and offering sacrifices for the moral and spiritual renewal of our country, and by making acts of reparation to console the gravely-offended Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of His Mother. Prayer and penance of this sort are never wasted, are of great spiritual benefit to ourselves and our loved ones, and are a wonderful way of assuring ourselves that Our Lady will assist us and cover us with her mantle of protection. There are many indications that we are entering a crucial time in world history, and while we cannot predict exactly how future events will unfold, we can be sure that those who live out their faith in Jesus will be preserved from harm and, in the end, be given every reason to rejoice.

    A schism isn’t necessarily bishops against a pope! It may be bishops who remain true to the teachings of Jesus n the Traditions of the church vs. bishops along w a pope who change the Catholic Church to accept the sins n values of the modern world which go against Jesus’ Teachings!

  • sliver1935

    Such a prescient post. How can we not understand what is happening here. Suddenly, out of nowhere comes a man (Barack Obama) who reflects most closely the embodiment of the Anti Christ of whom the pre-Vatican II Church has been prophesying since the beginning. And, again, suddenly out of nowhere comes a Pontiff who shares a world view more in line with the beast Obama than with our traditional faith. Now, in the final days, Churches are emptying. Catholic Schools are closing. Catholic Universities are teaching unholy doctrines and the priesthood is rife with perversion. How can we not see the signs of the times? “By their fruits, ye shall know them.”

  • Gerald Harp

    I am puzzled by the author’s ignoring the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by Pope JPII, an act ( the second try) that Sr. Lucia said was valid. What followed is astonishing: Gorbachev took over the the Soviet Union and he announced Troika (sharing the power) and Glasnost (openness). This was followed by the breakup of the USSR, freedom for the stated of Eastern Europe and south central asia that had been oppressed by the Soviet Union (although these latter states still have brutal dictatorships), the denunciation of commujnism and the painful changeover period to capitalism, and democracy in Russia and the eastern European states. Furthermore, following an awkward period of leadership by Boris the Drunk, Vladimir Putin took the reins of leadership and put a hard stop to the suppression of Christianity and religion in general and in fact he now even defends Christians and Jews in those areas of the Middle East where he can. Abortion is not allowed in Russia, nor is entering a Christian church disrupting services and breaking statuary, and cursing God something that is tolerated in Russia. Perhaps our attitude should be Thank God for Russia (even though of course God has brought about it’s rehabilitation thru Blessed Virgin Mary who in turn used Pope JPII who used Lech Walensa though it must be noted that Pope JPII in public prayer as he walked in Poland asked The Holy Spirit to free Poland (Boy, did he get an answer).

      Russia HAS NOT been consecrated. If it was, the world wouldn’t be in the mess it is in today.

      Read about Father Gruner.

      • Gerald Harp

        Sister Lucia said that the 1984 consecration did the job. Who should know Fr. Gruner or Sister Lucia? We should be able to accept the extraordinary, indeed thunderous, answer via events that followed and the current realities. We and the MSM and the White House should not petulantly hang on to grieving Soviet Union communism. We have real problems that hold us back including infant genocide, senselessly creating wars and endless kowtowing to Islamic demands and terrorist support from Middle East “allies.”

        • LauraB

          Gerald…it is common sense that if Russia was consecrated we would be living in peace…that is a fact. Father Gruner was totally devoted to the message of Sister Lucia. He spent his entire life trying to get this message out. Many people in the Church hated him for it. Did you know that we have free masons/commies in the Catholic Church?? Read up on Bella Dodd for just one reference. Russia has not been consecrated. There are people in the Church (Bertone) that are lying to us.

            Peace can mean the peace of Christ, not of man, so a time of reconciling with God. That time is now with Divine Mercy and the graces of recognizing this time of our visitation of. God’s mercy before His judgement. Jesus told St. Faustina

            We will ALL be judged as to how we fight now that we’re firmly in the middle of “Armageddon”; Ms. G, assuming this is really you, have made courageous attacks on the dEvils that be and paid a high price therefore.

            How far will we go? What are we willing to risk in the fight for God?

            Those sat sit “safely” on the fence, while children are raped and worse, and while others fight in the shadow of death, against real threats of mortal death, will be very disappointed!

            As per Judges 14:14 they will be metaphorically,[soul] food for the ‘Dragons'[devils]. Rightly so as this evil would not have been possible without their ‘help’!

            Yup and let’s continue on with that abortion, feminism, no fault divorce, affirmative action, EEO, welfare, child support, etc. Francis is an anti-pope heretic that decides on his own that this year is the “year of mercy”. What a bunch of garbage. Have an abortion lately? Divorce your husband and commit adultery and “marry” someone else lately? Hey! It’s all good now. It’s the year of mercy. All is forgiven. Continue on in your female whorish adulterous ways. It’s the year of mercy!

            Susan, you a one big fucking idiot. It’s females like you that need to shut the fuck up you stupid ignorant retarded idiot. You are so fucking dumb that your little peanut brain cannot comprehend the hypocrisy of the “year of mercy”. Isn’t it the lack of forgiveness that women decide to divorce their husbands? And now you whore females want forgiveness from the church? You would not forgive your husbands, but you want forgiveness from the church? You are a hypocrite. You’re an idiot and definitely no Catholic.

          • Gerald Harp

            Regrettably we are not living in peace because our nation, yes the USA, has become a war monger. Our people are still mostly good but for the past 16 years our leadership has been appalling. George W Bush lied us into making war on Iraq, a country that did us no harm and could not do us harm. He also switched reasons for making war on Afghanistan by, after after having Al Quaeda surrounded pulling out our forces in the vicinity and sending them to Iraq while claiming that our Afghan friends would take care of Osama. Since then Obama has attacked Libya and Syria. Of course, now Trump has attacked Syria without proof of their perfidy. We now have thousands of troops carrying out war in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. Any where else? The MSM has been happy about this, presumably because it gives them something exciting to report about and the journalists wish to be war correspondents

          • LauraB

            We WILL NOT live in peace until the Consecration of Russia is done.

            I do not like war….no one should, BUT WE MUST NOT let Kim Jung Un (spelling ?) use nukes….sorry, but the world is such a mess….only the U.S. can try to straighten it out. If America is not strong…the world is not strong!!!!

            Do not blame the mess of the world on the USA….that is shameful!!!!

          Sister Lucy was dead by 1960, probably martyred. Whatever the subsequent impostor said about the 1984 consecration is worthless. If you doubt this, conduct just a little research, and you will understand.

            Amen to Sr. Lucia’s likely martyrdom. When Fr. Fuentes saw her on December 26, 1957, he said she was very sad, pale and emaciated. She was of very strong Portuguese stock and always had a robust constitution. After Fr. Fuentes published her words at the meeting about a year later all hell broke loose. Fr. was all but called an outright liar in a letter released by her convent which bore no signature. Sr. Lucy was then silenced and no one heard or saw of her again. In 1967 at Fatima for its jubilee celebration a woman reputed to be Sr. Lucy shows up. She looked younger than the Sr. Lucy in pictures of 1938! She also had a Danish look instead of the dark bold features of the former Sr. Lucy. But her behavior is the real telltale sign that it was not the real Sr. Lucy! This woman was smiling, at ease and had none of the somber characteristics of the Sr. Lucy Fr. Fuentes noted. Search, SR. LUCY’S LAST INTERVIEW WITH FR. FUENTES ON YOUTUBE. It is nothing short of blood-chilling. My Jesus, mercy. Mary help!

            Sister Lucia was still alive in 1960. She died in 2005.

      True, alot happened after the Saint JP II consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart. (As mentioned above). Right after that he should have consecrated the United States. But you would think the Pope would travel to Russia and be free to say Mass. But he isn’t.

      in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

      The “end” is still to come. Her Immaculate Heart will Triumph, is still to come. The consecration is completed. And a period of “peace” is still to come.

      God works in mysterious ways. The 100 years of Fatima is probably the end. Alot of approved messages warns us of an event probably a chastisement to shake and awaken our souls into righteous entitys.

    • Anna M. Couturier

      I agree with you, Russia is more following the Christian values better than our own Country, where millions of so called Catholic are voting for a woman who is staunchly pro abortion, and will have us pay for this abomination!

  • Alfred G.”Jerry”Laverty

    I agree with John Leary and Christina Gallagher’s Predictions regarding the warning! Sunday,February 7,2016,Superbowl Sunday,5th Sunday in Ordinary Time,Cycle:C,is Conchita Gonzalez,69th Birthday and the 148th Anniversary of the passing of Blessed Pope Pius IX,I will be following events to see what happens! Pope Francis has not indicated he will attend the Synod in Russia in January,2016.

    • otherofbrazil

      I can’t find anything about a Synod in Russia in January, 2016. Can you show where you found this?

      • Alfred G.”Jerry”Laverty

        I found that Information posted by Glenn Hudson on Garabandal Messages on Facebook.com

  • Mona Lisa

    Our Lady of Marienfried said in 1946 to expect no signs or wonders; she would work her wonders in secret with her children and that their sacrifices would help her to destroy the image of the beast. I have personally seen many souls being drawn to her and her Immaculate Heart. She appears to be drawing her children to herself. May she triumph soon!

  • Maccabeus

    Since today is October 14, 2016, the proposed date of February, 2016 for the Warning was clearly wrong.

    Hello everyone, After 6 years trying to conceive I finally got pregnant 3 weeks after I contacted Priest Iyare from his website http://iyareyarespellstemple.webs.com/ It was simply amazing. I had history of recurrent miscarriages and was also diagnosed with genetic problems but using your system I got pregnant naturally at age 44& after 2 HSGs and 4 negative IUIs including 6 induction Clomid cycles and laparscopy. God will bless you and your good work more and more. I am recommending your program to all my friends. contact him on his website http://iyareyarespellstemple.webs.com/ or email him via iyareyaresolutiontemple@gmail.com and get your problems solved.

  • Joe Sheppard

    I am a Roman Catholic and have faith that Our Lady’s promises will be kept, even though her request for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart by the Pope in union with the bishops seems distant at present. In answer to the Faithful’s prayers, a Pope will do this at some point.
    However, I differ on this playing with dates and certain correspondences with feast days. So many feast days (even those of Our Lady) are available throughout the year and so many dates correspond to important occurrences, that this practice is meaningless in most cases.
    One must be careful also accepting every claim of an apparition, when the Church has not yet approved of it (nothing contrary to Catholic teaching). Also, one does not have to believe in any apparitions to be a Catholic (although I do believe in the authenticity of those the Church has approved).

    The breakdown in 1989 hasn’t stopped the continued warring of Satan against God’s people; the final day for World War III is December 29, 2018 A.D., the last day of the Three Days of Darkness. Updates to the countdown to the Day of the Lord at : http://risen-from-the-dead.forumotion.com/

      Good luck with those predictions

      • Edward Palamar

        Unsealing the Book of Daniel is not a prediction. If you were to study this, you could be enjoying the blessing of Daniel 12:11. The public unsealing occurred during an active session of the Court of Common Pleas in Chester County, Pennsylvania, in the spring of 2013 A.D., and may be recognized by all. http://risen-from-the-dead.forumotion.com/

        • Origen

          Mr. Palamar I am not Omniscient, only God is. I do not know you personally nor your works. Trying to unveil The Book of Daniel is the gift of Holy Mother Church. Holy Writ is not open to self interpretation. Now perhaps you are a Biblical Scholar or you are Mysticallly united receiving Divine Revelation, I do not know this. My first observation on what you have here is theory and prediction. I am well aware of the Book of Daniel. That being said, Daniel 12:11 refers to the Holy Sacrifice being abolished which is something I am not looking forward to. Certain circles believe this has already occurred, however I can not say this. This will be determined by a future Council. What I can say is this, I am an Orthodox Roman Catholic. I DO NOT BELIEVE RUSSIA IS CONSECRATED TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY!!! I DO NOT believe we are living in the era of peace. We are about to experience a great spiritual and physical chastisement. All of this because Our beloved Popes have disobeyed God due to geopolitical as well as personal reasons.

          • Edward Palamar

            My bad, Origen, I more meant Daniel 12:12, which includes words of blessing. I introduced myself to the presiding judge in the spring of 2013 A.D., that judge actually being the resurrected Pontius Pilate; I introduced myself with careful, precise details of what God has done in my life; during session, when Pontius exclaimed, “That’s amazing!”, the unsealing was much like the very atmosphere of which Daniel had when he was with the kings of Babylon; I prayed before the Court and God answered my prayer before the Court. It has taken me more than 61 years to consecrate the world, and Russia, to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but it has been done, formally, this past weekend. As an angel, I am witnessing the powers of Heaven being moved for the safety of Heaven (in nine segments, the ninth being the Three Days of Darkness); the week before Ascension Sunday, May 8, 2016 A.D., the 1,335th day of Daniel 12:12, has served as a pardon via mercies shown at Fort MacMurray, but is being transferred to the week before December 30, 2018 A.D., what would be the 2,301st day of Daniel 8:14.

          • Origen

            Ok Mr. Palamar now I am even more confused by what you are saying. You are telling me that you, yourself, are an angel who was judged by a resurrected Pontius Pilate and that you, yourself, being an angel did indeed fulfill the consecration request made by Heaven? Am I following you correctly so far?

          • Edward Palamar

            What I described as the ninth segment is actually a stand alone tenth segment. The answers to your questions are at the link provided.

          • Origen

            So I take that to mean you are not going to answer my question then!?

          • Edward Palamar

            Not if you won’t listen to the answer. Not if you’re so diabolically judgmental that you deny the resurrection. In Daniel 11 one can read concerning my kingship, “and he shall increase glory” – how can that not be someone resurrected ? … ? … ? as “all men have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” ? … ? … ?

          • Origen

            First of all I am an Orthodox Roman Catholic. Which means I am a Traditional Catholic. I am not a modern liberal. I know the teachings of the Catholic Church for I have studied the truth for nearly 30 years. This includes The U of S, a Jesuit College, St. Elias, an Orthodox Theological School, St. Augustine Theological school and private studies under two Ukrainian Catholic priests as well as several Latin Rite priests. Not to mention my studies with Old Catholics, Old Roman Catholics, Anglo Catholic, etc. I have a background in Moral Theology, Mystical Theology, Demonology, Mariology, Apologetics, Dogmatic Theology etc. The list goes on! In no way have I ever stated that I deny the Resurrection. This article of Faith is not optional, it is something I profess. Second there is nothing diabolical in my judgement. Objectively speaking you are pronouncing heresy. The problem is I can not know for sure because you never answered my questions. It appears you have reincarnation and the Resurrection confused. I can only go by a previous quote you made on another website stating this, “Jesus Christ has raised me from the dead to the office of Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman). I am the resurrected St. John the Baptist.” Now if you personally believe yourself to be both John the Baptist and Peter the Roman I strongly suggest you seek out some professional help.

          • Edward Palamar

            I see, you toot your own horn about your education so much that your head is too fat to see past your nose. Tough shit for you, Origen, because the General Resurrection of the Dead has begun and you’re too busy lauding yourself with labels, concerning which I have one for you to paste to your forehead : “Hell’s own”.

          • Origen

            Sir you do not even know me to make that accusation.You were the one labeling myself as a diabolical judgemental who denied the Resurrection. I was simply stating a fact. I am educated and I know the teachings of the Catholic Church. I am a sinner and the least of all deserving of any blessing from Our Lord. I am a piece of garbage and not even worthy enough to eat the scraps from the trash. I was born poor and lived a very bad life. There were tragedies in my life that pushed me even further away until I found myself on my knees. I consecrated myself to The Immaculate Heart of Mary, The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Most holy Trinity. I made a covenant with God. From that moment on my life began to change and the Kingdom of God became realized in my life. I carry no titles or labels other than I am a servant to the servants of God. What I am or who I am is because of God. God is glorified in me, through me and all around me as well as my family. Now you attack my character all because your angry. This all started over you claiming to unveil the Book of Daniel which I called making predictions. Of course, as I stated, the Bible is not open to self interpretation. Also, you still never answered my questions which brought us to where we are at now. It is my observation that you need to stop being what you are not and listen to see where He wants you to be. When you are ready to make an amends I am here, however I strongly suggest you become open to spiritual direction. I forgive you Mr. Palamar. Pax et bonum.

          • Edward Palamar

            Then I’ll put it this way, you’ve done a poor job of consecrating yourself, a very poor job, which gets worse with each post of yours here. God has established a New Covenant, not you. By denying the Resurrection in any way, shape, or form (which you do here through blasphemy of the Holy Ghost by ridiculing the angel who has interpreted the prophecy for you) you show how much of a greedy, filthy, lying, whoring devil you are. And no, this all started when you tried to reduce the gifts of prophecy and interpretation from the Holy Spirit to mere predictions, followed by your continued pompous insults and false accusations to which I hold you accountable, scumbag.

          • Origen

            Mr. Palamar you are not acting like a very charitable individual. If you were an Angel of The Lord you would not be wasting my time and yours trying to defend your position while at the same time insulting me. Your words are not of God! Your words are of Satan! I have never denied an article of Faith nor I have sinned against the Holy Ghost. Your anger is a reflection of what possess you. You have no idea who I am or what I am. I am a son of God, an ambassador for Christ, who lives to serve The Most Holy Queen of Heaven, Mary, Most Holy and my King The Lord Jesus Christ. Get behind me Satan!! I cast you out, you unholy vile phony filled with lies and deceit. IN THE HOLY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST I COMMAND YOU TO DEPART FROM ME YOU ACCURSED!!! Through the intercession of Saint Joseph, Terror of Demons, begone! Through the intercession of Saint Benedict, Protector of Hearth and Home, flee enemy of God! Through the intercession of The Most glorious Prince of the Heavenly Armies, Saint Michael the Archangel, go into hell you powers of darkness! The glorious Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, who crushed your proud head be banished! I plead the Sacred Salvific Precious Blood of the Lamb of God over my mind, heart, soul, body and that of my family! You heretical, schismatic, apostate begone from my life! Do not contact me any more until you have sought psychological help followed by an exorcism! Yet still I forgive you!!!

          • Edward Palamar

            Just to let the rest of internet users know, “Origen” at this site is a manifestation of Legion, who loves to hear its name and is documented with the witness of Christ’s angel against it here : http://risen-from-the-dead.forumotion.com/f341-origen-at-disqus

          • Origen

            Mr. Palamar just so you understand The seriousness of your offenses i have contacted church officials about your heresies. You will be excommunicated from the Latin Rite/Eastern Rite/Orthodox church. Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus. There is no salvation outside of the church for you. You are Anathema, you are not a theme or topic of discussion any longer. You are among the dead. Unless you recant from your statements and repent you are not a visible member of the church thereby being damned.

            Orthodox Roman Catholic Church
            ​​​​ DECREE
            Given in the United States of America
            20 May 2017
            ​​​​​Edward Palamar Popovich

            Let it be known that the man who calls himself Saint Elijah, Saint John the Baptist, Petrus Romanus, Angelic Being etc. has hereby incurred ecommunication latae sententiae as envisaged by The Fifteen Anathemas against Origenism, The Ten Anathemas of 543 and Canon XI of the Second Council of Constantinople, The Fifth Ecumenical Council. The above name is therefore anathema sit; accursed, excluded from fellowship or alliance with Christ.
            It has come to my notice Mr. Edward Palamar Popovich minimizes Christian salvation, conflicts with the resurrection of the body, creates an unnatural separation between body and soul, distorts the use of Sacred Scripture, causes scandal and defiles the Sacred names of the Saints by insinuating transmigration of the soul. Given the gravity of this situation and having taken advise from the Council I hereby decree the following:
            1. “Res sacrae, ritus, communion, crypta, potestas, praedia sacra, form, civilian jura vetantur,… loss of the sacraments, denial of attending Holy Mass and public prayers of the Church, no ecclesiastical burial, loss of canonical jurisdiction,
            Benefices, canonical rights and prohibition of social intercourse with the faithful.
            2. Edward Palamar Popovich by his actions, incurred an excommunication from the One, Holy, Catholic and Aposolic Church.
            This excommunication can only be removed by the Vicar General to The Community of Saint Franics, Chor Bishop of the Orthodox Catholic Church of the Americas.
            3. Edward Palamar Popovich must sign the Declaration and the Profession of Faith, and also; make a public apology to the one who goes by the name of Origen.
            4. The above mentioned is formally (i.e., publicly) excommunicated; and is separated from all communion with the faithful not only on earth but in Purgatory and Heaven as well (Matt. 18:18)

          • Origen

            Yeap this conversation is over. I cannot speak to someone who talks in riddles, doesn’t answer direct questions and sends me to a website to read more riddles. As I stated previously good luck with your predictions. Pax et bonum.

          • Origen

            So I figured it out, you are crazy, coo coo coo coo!!! You go around making comments like this, “Jesus Christ has raised me from the dead to the office of Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman). I am the resurrected St. John the Baptist.” Maybe you can fight for the spot with the Little Pebble, William Kamm, who also believes he is Petrus Romanus. WOW!!! I cant believe I am actually in this conversation. I hate to be the barer of bad news but you are not the Pope nor did you fulfill the mandate from Heaven. I suggest you seek assistance my friend.

  • Edward Palamar

    I break the curse at my website regarding 2017 A.D. in the recognition of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary in conjunction with 2018 A.D. recognizing the Victory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus : Maranatha, Lord Jesus : http://risen-from-the-dead.forumotion.com/

  • Origen

    It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks to believe to be true. No Pope has ever fulfilled the request made by The Most Holy Mother of God. RUSSIA HAS NOT BEEN CONSECRATED!!! Sr. Lucia never said it was complete, she said it was accepted. This could mean anything. Anyone who believes the consecration was or is complete is delusional!!! Any Cardinal, Bishop, Priest, Religious or lay that states the consecration is complete is lying. In this case, concerning Fatima and a direct demand from Heaven, Usurping God for political nonsensical reasons is a violation of the highest law, the salvation of souls. For every so called credible expert that states the consecration is complete there is one just as credible who states otherwise. THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING!!! I need to stop now before I say something I shouldn’t. All of these lies and deceit burn me up!!!!
