Miracle at Fatima

Mary Santomauro

In 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three children, Lucia dos Santos and her cousins, Francisco and Jacinta Marto, at the Cova da Iria, in Fatima, Portugal.

She informed them about God’s request to offer Him prayers, fasting and sacrifices and to offer the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays of the month, to appease His anger at what was going on in the whole world. And, at a later date, she told Lucia to make it known to the whole world, via a message to the Pope, the reason for her visit.

On Oct. 13, 1917, in Cova da Iria, before 70,000 people, the Blessed Mother even performed a three-month earlier-promised miracle to prove her point.

Those present for the miracle on that rainy day watched the sun dance around the sky then plunge toward the earth. They thought it was going to crash into the earth and kill everyone! It did not. The rains stopped and everything, including the muddy surroundings and wet clothing of those present, were dried.

She told the children also that at a later date she would return to ask for the Pope and Bishops of the Church, on the same day at the same time, to consecrate Russia, by name, to her Immaculate Heart … we’re talking about a five-minute prayer.

She also informed them that if the consecration was done, there would be a period of peace in the whole world. If this was not done as she requested, Russia would spread its wrongdoings throughout the whole world and there would be wars, famines and persecutions of the Church and whole nations would disappear from the earth. She also told them that only Portugal would be spared.

Francisco and Jacinta died at an early age but Lucia dos Santos entered the Carmelite convent of Santa Teresa in Coimbra, Portugal. On May 31, 1949 she made her profession as a Discalced Carmelite and was living in Coimbra, until her death in 2005.

It is no secret that the Church has known about this shortly after it began. They were supposed to reveal what is known as the entire 3rd Secret of Fatima in 1960, but declined to do so, even prohibiting Sister Lucy from discussing this openly, and those in the Vatican preventing this revelation are, in effect, placing all of mankind, including themselves, in jeopardy of not only losing their lives, along with much of mankind, but also their very souls!

To this day, there are some still doing everything they can to destroy the entire Fatima message and the one true church of Christ and replace it with their own form of how to live … with or without including God’s opinion of how they should be living!

As Pope Paul VI had revealed in his homily on the feast of Saints Peter and Paul on June 29, 1972, the smoke of Satan has entered the Church.

My question for the Pope, Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops and priests of the Catholic Church is: For those in the church involved in this diabolical effort, including all your cohorts, inside or outside the church, considering everything you are doing to destroy the message of God as presented by the Blessed Mother at His command, is it really worth an eternity in hell?
