The message of Fatima (05/27/2007)
From: John Schreiber

Buffalo, Minn.

It should come as no great surprise to Catholics that in the May 2007 issue of the Winona Diocese newspaper it once again failed to mention the 90th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima (May 13, 1917), when she appeared to three children, Lucia dos Santos, 10, and her cousins Francisco, 9, and Jacinta Marto, 7, on six occasions in 1917, between May 13 and October 13. Here's the last part of her message from July 13, 1917, which is so important today. "If my requests are heeded (man must stop offending God, already too much offended, consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the communion of reparation on the first Saturdays), Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good 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, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world."

Then she told the children, three months in advance, the time (October 13) and hour (noon) that a miracle would take place so that everyone would believe. More than 70,000 people witnessed "The Miracle of the Sun." Read John M. Hafferts book "Meet the Witnesses." It was so believable, in fact, that the famous Warner Brothers of Hollywood made a movie about it in the 1940s called "The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima," starring Gilbert Roland.

Not only has the Fatima message been repeatedly approved by such distinguished popes as Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, and John Paul II, but each of them has earnestly recommended our belief in, and our adherence to, the message of Fatima. Pope John Paul II went to Fatima on May 13, 1982, to renew the consecration of Russia and the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Also in the year 2000, John Paul II beatified both Francisco and Jacinta, the next step to sainthood.

To this date the conversion of Russia to the Catholic faith has not happened. Nor has peace. Could it be because of our permissive society that has degenerated modesty, chastity, fidelity, marriage and the family and what kind of fool believes God would grant peace to a world that kills its unborn children? (abortion) Since the 1962-65 Second Vatican Council attempt to modernize the Catholic Church was to downplay the Virgin Mary's role in the church. Pope Benedict took part in that downplaying as a young priest. Could this be the reason why our diocese newspaper each year fails to mention the anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima? Could it also be that the church has never told the truth about the third secret of Fatima "a crisis of faith in the church." Not the assassination of the pope, as the church claimed.

Sister Lucia gave instruction that the third secret was to be opened "not before 1960, by then everything will be clearer." Assassination of the pope would seem clearer (May 13, 1981) or a crisis of faith in the church. What does common sense tell you?
