What Is Our Lady of Fatima?
"Fatima is Heaven’s intervention to save us from persecution, war, annihilation, enslavement and hell.
Fatima is a visit by Our Heavenly Mother Mary in our time for our time. It is a Message of concern, a practical plan for world peace, a promise of Heaven.
It is Heaven’s interventions to save us from persecution, martyrdom, war, enslavement or annihilation. Above all it’s a way to save our souls from hell. It is meant for you.
Today Our Lady, by Divine Providence, invites you to learn The Whole Truth About Fatima by giving you this opportunity to know Her beautiful Message of Fatima.
The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, appeared 6 times to 3 shepherd children; Lucy, Francisco and Jacinta; between May 13 and October 13, 1917. She came to the little village of Fatima which had remained faithful to the Catholic Church during the recent persecutions by the government... from the website: The Fatima Center
The Three Secrets of Fatima
Video from Catholic 365
"Let's go over the 3 secrets that Mother Mary revealed to 3 Shepherd Kids in Fatima Portugal 1917.." from video introduction.
"..Angelic apparitions of Fatima
The first angelic visit – Spring 1916: The Angel teaches the shepherd children how to pray.
The second angelic visit – Summer 1916: The Angel reveals himself as the Angel of Portugal and motivates the children to continue praying and to offer as a sacrifice their suffering to the Lord.
The third angelic visit – Autumn 1916: The Angel brings communion to the shepherd children and asks them to make reparation for the crimes of “ungrateful men.”..
What happened to the shepherd children?
Francisco dies of the flu at age 11 – 1919
Jacinta dies of complications of the flu at age 10 – 1920
Lucia leaves Fatima for boarding school – 1921
Lucia becomes Sr. Mary of the Sorrowful Mother – October 3rd 1934
Lucia joins the Discalced Carmelites taking the name Sister Maria Lucia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart – May 31st 1949..
Many people may have heard of the secrets of Fatima. There are three of these so-called secrets which were parts of the message Mary revealed to the shepherd children that were not immediately made public. This is especially true with the third secret of Fatima, which Lucia only revealed when directly ordered to do so by her bishop in an act of holy obedience. The three secrets of Fatima are:
A vision of the souls in Hell.
Prediction of the end of WWI and a prediction of the beginning of WWII as well as a request to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
A vision of the Pope, along with other bishops, priests, religious and lay people, being killed by soldiers.
Pope Benedict XVI, then Cardinal Ratzinger, cautioned the faithful against reading the third secret in a way that predicts a future event. Many theories arose around the publishing of the third secret, and Cardinal Ratzinger responded to these theories by saying.
“The purpose of the vision is not to show a film of an irrevocably fixed future. Its meaning is exactly the opposite: it is meant to mobilize the forces of change in the right direction. Therefore we must totally discount fatalistic explanations of the “secret”, such as, for example, the claim that the would-be assassin of 13 May 1981 was merely an instrument of the divine plan guided by Providence and could not therefore have acted freely, or other similar ideas in circulation. Rather, the vision speaks of dangers and how we might be saved from them.”.. from the article: Our Lady of Fatima's 3 Secrets: What You Should Know About the Fatima Centennial
What is Actually Happening?
Video from John- Henry Westen Channel
"John-Henry gives his take on the incredible news that the Catholic bishops of Ukraine are pleading with Pope Francis to consecrate Russia according to the method asked for by the Blessed Virgin Mary." from video introduction.
Is this superstition?
Is this even credible?
Is a creature or Being that appears and promotes the worship of a dead human (Mary the mother of Jesus) Satan or a Demon?
Then we have this record of Popes having no real idea of what they are supposed to do so they consecrate the World as a safe guard from saying the wrong words which could cause more problems!
God does not work this way and he is not dependent on the words of a man for his providential and sovereign control. - Andy
Excerpt from the text from the article: Our Lady of Fatima's Messages:
"Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask graces from Her and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to Her. "
Is The Worship of Saints & Mary Idolatry?
"It is sobering to remember that the visions of Fatima are not just the wishful thinking of three peasant children or the fanciful imaginations of ignorant children.
The visions have been approved by the Church, validated by five popes and given credence by millions..." from the article: Fatima's Vision of Hell
This statement from an article by Father Dwight Longnecker claims validation by the Church and five popes makes these visions or whatever they were legitimate. The Vatican's record of deceit and sexual perversions is long standing. The Church is just as corrupt as any other human institution and this is well documented, therefore validation of anything by it is not credible. - Andy
"The Bible is absolutely clear that we are to worship God alone. The only instances of anyone other than God receiving worship in the Bible are false gods, which are Satan and his demons. All followers of the Lord God refuse worship. Peter and the apostles refused to be worshiped (Acts 10:25–26; 14:13–14). The holy angels refuse to be worshiped (Revelation 19:10; 22:9). The response is always the same, “Worship God!”
Roman Catholics attempt to “bypass” these clear Scriptural principles by claiming they do not “worship” Mary or saints, but rather that they only “venerate” Mary and the saints. Using a different word does not change the essence of what is being done. A definition of “venerate” is “to regard with respect or reverence.” Nowhere in the Bible are we told to revere anyone but God alone. There is nothing wrong with respecting those faithful Christians who have gone before us (see Hebrews chapter 11). There is nothing wrong with honoring Mary as the earthly mother of Jesus. The Bible describes Mary as “highly favored” by God (Luke 1:28). At the same time, there is no instruction in the Bible to revere those who have gone to heaven. We are to follow their example, yes, but worship, revere, or venerate, no!
When forced to admit that they do, in fact, worship Mary, Catholics will claim that they worship God through her, by praising the wonderful creation that God has made. Mary, in their minds, is the most beautiful and wonderful creation of God, and by praising her, they are praising her Creator. For Catholics, this is analogous to directing praise to an artist by praising his sculpture or painting. The problem with this is that God explicitly commands against worshiping Him through created things. We are not to bow down and worship the form of anything in heaven above or earth below (Exodus 20:4–5). Romans 1:25 could not be more clear: “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.” Yes, God has created wonderful and amazing things. Yes, Mary was a godly woman who is worthy of our respect. No, we absolutely are not to worship God “vicariously” by praising things (or people) He has created. Doing so is blatant idolatry..." from the article: Is the Worship of Saints/Maty Biblical?
"..The miracle of Fatima was a century ago.
This past weekend Pope Francis fudged the request of Our Lady of Fatima.
John-Henry Westen at Lifesite News reported:
The requests of Our Lady of Fatima for the consecration of Russia were very specific. In at least eight attempts over the last nearly 100 years, Popes have failed to do it as she explicitly requested. And for that very reason, the promised full conversion of Russia and world peace were not granted to the world.
The best opportunity for the consecration of Russia has presented itself now, with the Bishops of Ukraine begging the Pope for the consecration of Russia as Our Lady requested while their own nation is under the attack by Russia. However, this Sunday, Pope Francis indicated he may not do the consecration as heaven requested.
The consequences could be catastrophic for the world. Our Lady warned if the consecration were not done, “various nations will be annihilated.”
On Sunday, Pope Francis said he will consecrate “humanity” to the Immaculate Heart. He said, “I invite every community and all the faithful to unite with me on Friday, March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation, to the Solemn Act of Consecration of humanity, especially Russia and Ukraine, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so that she, the Queen of Peace, may help us obtain peace.”.. from the article: Pope Francis Fudges Wording of Fatima’s Warning on the Consecration of Russia
Could the Being That Appeared Have Been Demonic?
"Our Lady of Deception
By Reese Currie, Compass Distributors
A being, representing itself as Mary the mother of Jesus, made an appearance at Fatima some years ago. This has been dismissed by some as a demonic apparition that was not Mary at all. I was asked to explain how a demon could make such an appearance and point people to Jesus.
To begin with, the apparition did not actually point anyone to Jesus. Rather, she promoted Mariolatry and the false sacramental gospel of the Roman Catholic Church.
I found a page describing the appearance of pseudo-Mary at Fatima. I have taken a few excerpts from this page to show how the "Mary" and "Guardian Angel of Portugal" could not possibly have God as their source.
The page says, "The Guardian Angel of Portugal appears to the children and tells them to submit with patience to the sufferings that will come to them. He tells them to pray and offer sacrifices in reparation for the conversion of sinners."
The fact that the Roman Catholic Church consistently requires sacrifices, beyond the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, proves conclusively that the Roman Catholic Church is not Christian. At least it does so for anyone with an inkling of understanding of the Bible..." from the article: Our Lady of Deception
