Do we “get away” from things?
That struck me as interesting.
Hell is horrible, we can just leave it there if you wish.
I take what Sister Lucia says or people have “reported” that she said with a grain of salt.
No one is compelled to believe or have a devotion to Fatima.
It’s devotion to OUR LADY as the Mother of God that we should embrace, not the particulars of her comings and goings.
In my unscientific thinking, most of the Catholics that I have met that have a strong love and devotion to the Virgin Mary are much more peaceful people, much more convinced of God’s mercy, and much more grateful for the love of Christ, Simply because Mary talks about it all the time, She lived it on earth.
She gave birth to pure love. That HAS to count for something from us.
God bless you.
