In 1917 at the apparitions of Fatima Portugal, the blessed Virgin told the three children she was appearing to that world war I was about to end. However she also warned of a second world war. She said:
"To save them [sinners who are on the road to hell], God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse war will break out during the reign of Pius XI…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. If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.
I believe, with what we are seeing in Crimea, that there is a real possibility that the Fatima prophecy has yet to be fully realized. I say this for 3 reasons:
After the 1984 consecreation was made, Sr. Lucia of Fatima said that the consecration was valid…Or did she?..Many here may have a hard time with this because of the source. The site I am about to refer to is by a Pope Pius X society, which is in schism with the Church. I do not support the Pius X society or hold to their views or beliefs. However it is also data itself. Much like the science community, you can look at the facts of something, without adapting to views that scientists hold to prove a point. The nose in particular points to the fact that this could be true: traditioninaction.org/HotTopics/g12htArt2_TwoSisterLucys.htm
Garabandal. It has not yet approved by the Catholic church. Im currently writing a book on the apparitions of Garabandal. It should be released this year or at the beginning of 2015. The bishops have stated that while nothing at Garabandal goes against faith and morals, or the gospel, the supernatural nature of the said apparitions could not be confirmed. The estatic walks in the village, the rosaries that turned to gold, the healings of various pilgriams, grown men unable to lift the girls during their reported visions all pointed toward the preturnatural, or that which is above human nature. But still, it could not be approved (there are reasons behind this which I address in the book) But the reason for this point is that communism was mentioned at Garabandal. The visionaries spoke of a miracle in Spain that is said to be greater than that of Fatima, a global illumination of hearts (which multiple saints have also prophecied of), and a permanent visible sign left at the apparition site. When asked in 1965 when these events would occur the visionary said
“When communism newly comes again, everything will happen”
“What do you mean by newly comes again” (the interview was made in 1965 when RUSSIAN communism was alive and well)
“I do not know. The Blessed Virgin simply stated that when communism newly comes again, everything will happen.”
In 1984, Pope John Paul made a consecration in Fatima. He made a specific reference to Russia in union with all the bishops of Rome. I realize it wasnt said by name, but there was absolutely clear reference to Russia in union with the bishops. However I have found a statement made by the eldest seer of Fatima, that many have overlooked. In 1938, Sister Lucia had received a document vision of the Lord in her convent. The Lord told her: ** ‘They did not wish to heed My request (to consecrate Russia in union with all the bishops). Like the King of France they will repent of it, and they will do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread its errors in the world, provoking wars and persecutions against the Church. The Holy Father will have much to suffer.In other words, what I gather from this is: It will be done, but it will not prevent the war and persecution referenced in the Blessed Virgin’s 1917 prophecy.
This brings me to a last point. Our Lady of Fatima did not end Her prophecy speaking about doom and gloom. She promised that in the end, her immaculate heart would triumph, the holy father would consecrate Russia (a statement which seems to lean toward the country not being consecrated as “Sister Lucia” stated during the 1980s), and an era of peace being granted to the world. Have we seen an era of peace?
“In that day the Branch of the Lord will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors in Israel. 3 Those who are left in Zion, who remain in Jerusalem, will be called holy, all who are recorded among the living in Jerusalem. 4 The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit[a] of judgment and a spirit** of fire. 5 Then the Lord will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory[c] will be a canopy. 6 It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.”
This statement was written well after Solomon dedicated the temple…We have to this very moment not witnessed this. This is something I also address in my book on Garabandal. It will be out soon.
But thoughts on Russia and Fatima though with what is happening in the news?****
