13 May – Feast of Our Lady of Fatima… 103 Anniversary of the Apparitions

Fatima Shrine Closed To Pilgrims – First Time in over a Century…

Denver Newsroom, May 7, 2020 / 03:48 pm (CNA).- For the first time in over a century, the annual May 13 celebrations at the Fatima shrine will take place without the physical presence of pilgrims, the bishop of Fatima confirmed this week.

Cardinal Antonio Marto said in a May 3 statement that the celebrations for the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima “will take place as was announced April 6, without the physical presence of pilgrims, in the name of prudence to avoid the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus.”

“As planned in conjunction with the civil authorities, the May 12 and 13 celebrations for this year cannot have the physical presence of the pilgrims and will be transmitted by broadcast and digital media,” he continued.

The cardinal explained that hosting “an unpredictable multitude of people” gathering at a time when the coronavirus pandemic is still a serious threat would go against the efforts of health authorities to gradually lift restrictions imposed to slow the spread of the virus.

“We therefore respect, in an attitude of collaboration with the competent civil authorities, the guidelines for these celebrations to be held with a symbolic presence of participants,” Marto said.

The clarification over the Fatima feast day came as the Portuguese government gradually begins to ease restrictions that had been put in place in response to the pandemic, prompting speculation over whether the May 13 celebrations would be able to take place as normal. The annual event typically draws hundreds of thousands from around the world to the shrine.  Read more at  Source – Catholic World Report

Comment: 

Judging from the above report, it seems that it might have been possible to allow the celebrations to take place as usual – and that would have been very fitting; a return to normality marked by the Fatima celebrations.  Interesting that the Cardinal didn’t push for that.  Interesting, but not too surprising these days when – in contrast to the Fatima Message – contemporary churchmen are more concerned with the health of the body than the health of the soul. 

Still, we take a different view here, so share your knowledge about Fatima, your favourite parts of the Fatima events, hymns and prayers special to you, and your thoughts on the astounding miracle of the sun. Additionally, tell us if you think there is any relationship between the ongoing pandemic  and Fatima, and if you have any ideas about when the Consecration of Russia will take place in the manner prescribed by God and revealed through Our Lady, be sure to let us know.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

  1. I’ve just been watching the video below, where evidence is provided that we are definitely heading into permanent authoritarian government – the Wuhan virus is but the excuse… Chilling, at times, but worth watching to the end. It definitely brought the Fatima prophecies about diabolical disorientation and the spread of Russia’s errors to my mind.

    • I find it incomprehensible that people don’t see that we are walking right into a totalitarian form of government.

      I’ve been reading about Sweden where they have taken a much more relaxed approach to this virus and one comment from an Australian called Piper living there struck me the most: “Ultimately, Piper is “reluctant” to say whether the country’s strategy is correct, but she admits she’s thankful to have to freedom to make her own choices.”

      That’s all I ask. Let me decide how to live my own life and that includes if I want to visit the Fatima shrine for the annual celebrations on the 13th. It’s shocking that the cardinal has supported the ban on pilgrims. Truth be known, he has probably suggested it, just like the bishops here suggested closing the churches. They have no shame.

      • Editor/Lily

        I agree entirely, this is the “errors of Russia”, spoken of By Our Lady at Fatima, coming home to haunt us all big time. The blindness of so many people reminds me of those in Our Lord’s day whose rejection of God blinded them to the truth.

        Governments everywhere have applied the Beijing method to the Chinese virus, that is, the Communist totalitarian method of suppressing civil liberties, destroying people’s incomes, isolating them from their families and friends, closing down the churches, covertly surveiling them, having neighbour snitch on neighbour in secret to the police, and, it seems, now moving towards a cashless society. It is pure raw Communism brought down upon all democratic nations in one day on the fake story of a killer virus.

        Under any other circumstances there would have been war on the streets, had they tried to take away freedom like this, but people are so blind and so fearful from the terror narrative that they have actually given approval for their own subjugation. Only a demonic mind could have come up with a plan so simple yet so effective.

        My suspicion now is that the evil elite are about to break up the EU, no longer requiring its subversive presence now that the totalitarianism has gone global. Brexit won’t matter now and Trump, they hope, will lose in November and they will have regained what they were losing everywhere until March, i.e., their grip on power.

      • Lily,

        I believe that this potential totalitarian government you mention is the logical consequence of laïcité, the separation of church and state that is present in every modern Western democracy. It is a product of the Enlightenment, and is condemned by the Syllabus of Errors of Pius IX. But Vatican II seems to condone this state of affairs, particularly in regard to religious liberty. No wonder Cardinal Ratzinger described Vatican II as the “counter-syllabus”.

        There is no such thing as a religiously neutral state. Every state has a state religion. What we have is essentially the secular humanist state, i.e. a Freemasonic state.

  2. This is Christopher Ferrara’s take on the link between the Coronavirus and the New World Order, which I copied from the Fatima Center website. It’s really worth reading.

    Official Virus of the New World Order
    by Chris Ferrara
    Fatima Perspectives #1387

    In the United States the Democrat Party and its media allies are avidly politicizing “the coronavirus,” falsely depicted as a one-of-a-kind viral plague when the world is rife with coronaviruses, including the common cold. Democrat governors in California, Pennsylvania and New York are shutting down entire states and issuing preposterous decrees that no one may leave home or conduct any business for “non-essential” purposes until they say so.

    While fanning the flames of panic over some 230 deaths attributed to COVID-19 thus far, deaths from the common flu, which the CDC estimates will be 20,000 – 40,000 this flu season in the United States alone, are ignored. Thus, California’s loony Democrat governor, Gavin Newsom, has placed the entire state of 45 million under quarantine because of 18 deaths from COVID-19 at the same time 328 Californians have died from the flu with no official action. In America, this virus should be dubbed DNC-19, as it has been weaponized to wreck the Trump economy in a matter of two weeks, and Trump must play along with the orchestrated fear lest he be destroyed politically.

    But in the rest of the world, this virus should be dubbed NWO-19 because it is most useful to the movers and shakers of the New World Order, who are now calling for such things as universal tracking of social activity via cellphones, as we see here and here, to give just two examples. The idea is to monitor everybody to make sure the masses are sufficiently compliant with the new regime of quarantining entire states and even countries because of this or that virus — it will not end with COVID-19 — that does not approach a fraction of the deaths caused by annual influenza year after year: from 290,000 – 646,000 worldwide.

    And it should surprise no one that Pope Francis, an incessant cheerleader for one-worldism, has likewise seized on the virus as an occasion to issue globalist bromides. As reported by Vatican News, in an interview with La Stampa Francis declared that “[t]he current crisis will help to remind us ‘once and for all, that humanity is a single community’ [and] that ‘universal kinship’ is important and critical…. ‘It will no longer be ‘them’. It will be ‘us’. Because we can only come out of this situation together’.”
    In the same interview Francis rightly calls for prayer for those afflicted by COVID-19, particularly in Italy. All well and good. But then why have all public Masses in Italy been suppressed at the same time people can go to food markets even under the Italian national quarantine, handle food items touched by innumerable other people and stand in checkout lines next to each other?

    Moreover, where do we find a papal call for prayer each annual flu season, when hundreds of thousands of people around the world die agonizing deaths, versus the 11,000 that have died so far from COVID-19? According to the Worldometers data site, since January, when COVID-19 became a media obsession, 106,000 people have died from the common flu. No papal call for prayers for them? Why not?

    I think the answer is clear: unlike the flu, which is a fact of life everywhere, the novelty of COVID-19, easily exploited to generate fear of the unknown, presents an ideal pretext for social engineering on a global scale. Precisely the kind of social engineering this Pope promotes when he declares that all of humanity must obey, not Christ the King or His Church, but the United Nations:

    “When we acknowledge international organisations and we recognise their capacity to give judgment, on a global scale – for example the international tribunal in The Hague, or the United Nations. If we consider ourselves humanity, when they make statements, our duty is to obey. It is true that not all things that appear just for the whole of humanity will also be so for our pockets, but we must obey international institutions. That is why the United Nations were created. That’s why international courts were created.”

    We must obey international institutions! We must! And what better object lesson in this abject obedience could there be than COVID-19, the official virus of the New World Order and its dictates on how we must live our lives? The New World Order that represents the terminal stage of the spread of Russia’s errors to China, from whence the virus came, and from there to the whole world — precisely as Our Lady of Fatima warned.

    • Laura

      Yes, as usual, Chris Ferrara nails it. And all the world’s population is following after the beast looking for salvation from Covid-19!

      • Athanasius,

        It’s just beyond belief that things could change so suddenly and nobody thinks a thing about it. I can’t get over it. Nobody thinks anything about the police dispersing groups of people just chatting. It is just incredible. Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain is livid that Boris has relaxed the rules and he’s supposed to be an investigative journalist!

        One thing struck me about Chris Ferrara’s article and it is that we are not hearing the numbers for other deaths, such as seasonal flu. Everything is Coronavirus. I definitely see the link with Fatima, no question about it. If this isn’t about Russia spreading her errors, I’d like to know what is.

        • Laura

          Such is the persuasive power of fear, especially in a world in which most people live for this life only with no belief at all in the life to come. Under those circumstances it’s easy to understand why they’re all so terrified.

  3. The Third Secret and ‘END OF THESE TIMES’ has started. What is happening now will only get worse. The leaders around the world have all been quoting from the same script, always mentioning a ‘second wave’ of the virus and the relaxation of ‘lockdown’ will change if a second wave should start. They are preparing us for a second propaganda scare story of a terrible virus spreading again and tighter ‘lockdown’ controls being implemented with Brown Shirts coming into our homes and ‘quarantine’ people by force.

    Already the ‘second wave’ has started in Wuhan according to the BBC (REPORTS OF SMALL CLUSTERS- WATCH THIS SPACE!). Perhaps they will start saying that children are more vulnerable to the virus than first thought, to scare parents even more (without any proof and robust tests of course.)

    This is an excellent video, well worth watching before its censored.

    • Francescomarta

      I’ll watch the video a little later, but suffice it to say you’re right. That’s what they all mean when they speak of “the new normal”. They are planning a full scale lockdown again later and then they’ll have us all under permanent restrictions, surveilance, forced vaccination, et al.

    • I could not believe it when I saw the WHO official – with the Irish accent! – saying we would need officials going into people’s home and if necessary removing them! Then to see the American politician for his area saying the same thing and spelling it out in detail. What is going on? How can this be?

      We need to do everything we can, make the first five Saturdays while we still have the freedom to do so – well, in England they think the churches will reopen in July but we’re not going to get out of this evil lockdown for a much longer period. The dictator Sturgeon is determined to keep us in our homes indefinitely. Notice how mad she is that the “stay home” mantra has been dropped by Boris. God help us all.

    • That video is worth watching, if only to hear the World Health Organisation puppet explaining how we need to prepare to have guards coming into our homes to remove anyone testing positive for the virus and take them to a centre of quarantine. Chilling doesn’t begin to describe it.

      As one commentator wrote on another blog, and I make his words my own, I can remember when people used to die of other things.

  4. Thank you, FrancescoMarta, for the petition link and the Dr. Kaufman video!

    The suddenness of this coordinated response reminds me of a couple of things: first, although a slower revolution because it was the Church, the speed with which the Vatican II revolution swept through the Catholic Church and reduced it to anarchy. One writer called it “snatching defeat from the jaws of victory,” since the Church in 1962 was, at least statistically, flourishing. By 1970, though, the Church was no longer recognizable.

    The degree of coordination in that revolution was highly suspicious, but relatively easy to explain given the high degree of infiltration accomplished by Freemasons and Communists, who used the principle of false obedience, combined with threats, to accomplish their goals.

    Second, the institution of airport security measures after the terrorist attacks of the 1970s. Again, not as rapid, but back then there was no internet, email, etc. Would a traveler from the 1960s, not having taken a flight since then, recognize the invasive procedures that passengers must now endure to get on their flights? Like the current lockdown, this revolution was also about control, and identifying potential enemies of the state.

    Finally, a thought about socialism, which is the operative model behind globalism (although it is now rapidly being abandoned for outright and undisguised tyranny). Socialists constantly blather about human dignity and human rights, compassion, universal opportunity, being disturbed by other people’s pain, the prevention of suffering, and most importantly, their insistence on “human potential.” In other words, the earthly happiness of every individual, including the freedom to do whatever he wants, outweighs all the oppressive strictures of a coherent, God-designed society. It’s all a disguised elaboration of Satanist Aleister Crowley’s infamous motto: “Do what thou wilt.”

    But if there’s anything that gives the lie to the socialist veneer, it is the current coordinated response to the “virus.” If socialists were true to their propaganda, they would trust people to have the common sense to take care of their health and avoid infection, while treating those who have become sick with proven medications rather than highly toxic and/or fatal “vaccines” which bring billion$ in profits to Bill Gates and his fellow demons.

    But no, this entire procedure is based on distrust of the common man and his common sense, or even worse, fear – fear that he will reject the diktats of the central planners and revolt against their tyranny. So the response of the ruling elites to their fear is the creation of fear – fear of death – among the masses, who, so the theory goes, will be compliant with Big Brother’s solicitous rules because it’s for our own good.

    No matter how you slice it – whether from the phony “redistribution of wealth” or from universal brotherhood, or from prosperity, or from “justice,” or from health – socialism is a crock. And I think we are going to see a sharp increase in worldwide citizen revolt, even, eventually, in the passive UK, in response to this.

    • RCA Victor,

      I wish I shared your optimism about a citizens’ revolt. There is nothing revolting about the citizens in this part of the world, trust me, er, so to speak 😀 And such is the strength of the anti-English feeling up here in not-so-bonny-Scotland that the SNP are likely to be re-elected again, despite their many failings in ordinary time, never mind their tyrannical response to this “emergency”. Mzzz Sturgeon is just loving this. Someone once remarked that she has been riding high for a while, but all the greater will be her fall when it comes.

      • Editor,

        I did temper my optimism with “eventually”…. which could mean when the swallows come home to Capistrano…

        Meanwhile, while I was pontificating about socialism, I forgot all about your thread request to share our knowledge about Fatima. Unfortunately, as Lt. Columbo said during Dean Martin’s roast of Frank Sinatra, referring to his humble attire with raincoat and no tuxedo, “Dis is all I got.”

        I’m also not sure about the connection between this plan-demic and Fatima, but I am pretty certain that if any Pope since 1960 had done his job, we wouldn’t be looking at being under house arrest for an indefinite future.

        • RCAVictor

          You’re doing a right old RCA there with “When the swallows come back to Capistrano”. That’s an Ink Spots hit, isn’t it?

          • Athanasius,

            Good call!

            Although, considering the sedate nature of this song, I can’t at first blush figure out why it was a hit!

            • RCA Victor,

              That’s a very nice song – I hadn’t heard of it… before my time 😀 All I need to do now is research to find out precisely where is Capistrano. Sounds Italian. I’m off to Google… Hang on… No, wrong… It’s in Orange County, California. And here’s something very interesting – it’s known for the fact that the swallows return there annually.

              So, the singer wouldn’t have too long to wait 😀 What’s he complaining about? 😀

            • RCAVictor & Editor

              I like the Ink Spots despite the old fashioned songs. The other hots were ‘Maybe’, ‘Do I worry’, ‘Whispering Grass’ ‘Every night about this time’, etc. Great harmonious music, when music actually had proper lyrics. Yes, I’m an ageing romantic!!

        • RCA Victor,

          That IS the key connection. Until Russia is consecrated, Russia will continue to spread her errors and we’ll find ourselves under totalitarian government across the world. That IS the connection – that is obviously what Our Lady was warning…

      • Editor,

        And furthermore….when are the Scots going to use their anti-English sentiments to add 2 + 2? That is, the original outrageous computer models for this hoax came from England. That should automatically make you Scots suspicious, or worse.

        • RCAVictor

          Indeed! But did you know that the English quack who wrote the model (13 years ago for Flu, incidentally) bears the Scottish surname Ferguson? So the Scots are twice insulted!

        • RCA Victor,

          I’m just looking at the immediate differences in responses from the English and (joke) Scottish Governments. The English PM wants to beginning to ease restrictions (thank you kind sir, for thinking about giving me back some of my freedoms) while the Scots First Minister wants to keep them all to herself for as long as possible. The bigots up here have turned Boris’s largesse into [another] criticism against him. He’s being “reckless”, she is “cautious” and “cautious” is good.

          Which reminds me, how come her hair is so neat, still so short? Surely Mzzzz Sturgeon isn’t going to the hairdresser or having a hairdresser come to her home? Think Tucker, think the policymakers don’t keep the rules, the rules are meant for you (us) peasants…

          • Editor,

            You should email your Head Fish and ask if she would be willing to be among the first to roll up her sleeve for the new vaccine – you know, just to set a good example for her countrymen…women…fill in the blank…

            • RCA Victor,

              You are assuming that she would care if I emailed. I wrote to her twice years ago when she was the Health Secretary (about abortion) and she didn’t deign even to acknowledge my letters, let alone reply. She’s hardly likely to explain to a peasant like moi how she manages to keep her hair so short and neat, and I doubt very much that her husband would be cutting it – I can’t imagine that he would be too familiar with that particular profession…

              Then again, maybe he’s easily enough “coaxed” into doing his best…

              • Editor,

                Shouldn’t that be “I obey”?

                You could always email her with the VPN technique of the troll the other day, who appeared here every 5 minutes with a new blogger name.

                In fact, you can use mine! And/or use some of the villains’ names in the Martyrology, like “Boleslaw the Cruel.”

                Wait! A better idea! Sign as Lt. Columbo!

              • Editor

                When you think of it though, she’s well in with the hairdresser club, if you catch my drift!

  5. Some of you may be interested in knowing what is happening in Western Australia. We have just been told that from next Monday 18th May, all churches may reopen for services but we must not exceed 20 people in the church just as cinemas, pubs, restaurants and the like. And the rules regarding seating within the buildings must still be obeyed. The number of people within the State with the virus stands at 9 as of yesterday with no new cases of the disease for the last 10 days!

    • John Rayner

      It’s interesting you mention these low numbers and the excessive response to them, which adds weight to the evidence that this is internationally orchestrated. Imagine shutting down an entire State, or even almost shutting it down, for 9 cases of a virus. This tells us that the entire business is fake.

      What I’ve noticed is that outside of the major world economies, 7 or 8 countries, Covid-19 hardly figures in reall terms of infection or death. Once again, it all points to orchestration by a left wing globalist elite manipulating governments and populations through the power of the media to follow like lambs to slaughter.

    • John,

      9 cases? Unbelievable. Except that there are 9 states in the USA which have not been in lockdown and have very low numbers of deaths. I’ve copied the facts below, with the link (again) to that Remnant article…

      The following are the nine states that have refused to impose lockdowns. All of them have minimal death tolls from the Wuhan virus, including the populous South Carolina, and five of them have not enacted even local lockdowns:
      Arkansas – 14 deaths. No statewide or local lockdowns.
      Iowa – 14 deaths. No statewide or local lockdowns.
      Nebraska – 8 deaths. No statewide or local lockdowns.
      North Dakota – 3 deaths. No statewide or local lockdowns.
      Oklahoma – 42 deaths.
      South Carolina – 40 deaths.
      South Dakota – 2 deaths. No statewide or local lockdowns.
      Utah – 8 deaths.
      Wyoming – 0 deaths.
      [Data as of this writing on April 6 at 9 p.m.]

      Gov. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas told the Fake News New York Times what we have been saying on these pages since the stupid lockdowns began: “the typical stay-at-home order was a misleading ‘illusion’ because it includes so many exemptions allowing people to go out in public, such as for groceries or exercise… ordering people to stay at home would simply leave thousands jobless.”
      https://remnantnewspaper.com/web/index.php/fetzen-fliegen/item/4841-coronagate-the-truth-emerges

      • My thanks to all those who have replied. What a contrast around the world. May I add the grand total of ALL deaths in the whole of Australia, not just Western Australia? We have had a total of 97 deaths throughout the whole of Australia. Apparently we have had one more case of Coronavirus today in a hotel but we don’t yet know where the person has come from! They are not dead, just that they have shown connection to the disease,

        • John Rayner

          Yes, those 97 deaths in Australia, the size of that country and the heavy human traffic it receives from Asia, is astounding. Shows again that the entire Covid-19 business is utterly fake.

      • Editor,

        Given the CDC-guided falsification of cause-of-death records, those numbers, low as they are, are probably meaningless. In fact, since Dr. Kaufman, in the video above, says there is no actual coronovirus disease, the actual death count from this hoax is a whopping

        ZERO.

      • Can you explain to me why New York had thousands of deaths with a lockdown, but these states didn’t have a lockdown and yet had few deaths? I’m sorry but I don’t believe those stats. As for John Rayner’s comments on Australia, they had 6,980 cases, 6,271 recoveries and 98 deaths, which proves that the Australians were successful if treating it.

        • CC,

          Even those super-clever top experts say that most people only get mild symptoms (if any) and most recover. That’s the whole point about the needless panic. It’s been engineered, not because the virus is deadly, but because they want to keep us under tight control. Think, think, think, CC, and when you’ve done that, think again!

  6. I suppose that I ought to add that if any of you tries to come here to Western Australia by any means at all then you will be met by our police at the border no matter where you come from or how you come and they will lock you up for two weeks isolation whether you like it or not.

    • John Rayner

      Yes, they’ve just introduced that here as well. It’s all part of the new totalitarianism and there’s worse to come, they plan to drag infected people from their homes and locked them up somewhere away from their families. It is exactly the Beijing method to the Chinese virus and people are just letting it happen. This is Communism now establishing itself as the global power and only Our Lady can now stop it.

  7. I’ve finally finished viewing the Dr. Andrew Kaufman video, which is truly nightmarish. And it makes me wonder if there is a certain indirect connection between this globalist Papacy and the pandemic.

    One of the most disgusting features of this hoax has been the globalist approval – which includes the approval of some members of the Democrat Party in the US – of the way Red China has “handled” the alleged pandemic. That is, forcibly removing people from their homes and into quarantine, contact tracing, body temperature checks, etc.

    Now think back to the infamous secret deal inked between the Vatican and Red China in 2018, negotiated by Cdl. Parolin and possibly even McCarrick before him, wherein the Underground Church was thrown under the bus, exactly as Cardinal Zen claimed.

    Could this not have been an advance attempt to cast the Red Chinese in a more favorable light, using the moral authority of the Church [which is actually now defunct], so that their brutal crackdown on their disease could be portrayed as commendable?

    • RCA Victor,

      “truly nightmarish” is spot on. As for “indirect” connection between the Francis pontificate and the pandemic – you are too kind. Pope Francis is the original “useful idiot” – it’s worth reminding ourselves of the way the Vatican gives a platform to every enemy of the Faith, as often as possible, so I’m posting, once again, the video of Jeffrey Sachs at the Vatican, telling the world that it’s only Donald Trump which stands between us and the New World Order (totalitarian one-world government) And don’t miss the prelate by his side, applauding him – namely, Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, another useful idiot.

      • Editor,

        Good point. Since the Vatican bureaucracy is currently studying AI (Artificial Intelligence), perhaps we ought to make a recommendation that they be first in line to acquire some of that intelligence. It’s not only faith that is so glaringly lacking in the halls of the Leftist King.

  8. Here in the Emerald Isle, the reaction of ordinary people is unreal. It’s total apathy as far as I can see. Journalists John Waters and Jemma Doherty brought a case to the courts about the legality of the lockdown, and the venom from the vast majority of people is amazing. They have bought the Government line hook and sinker. The Covid payment is seen as an extended holiday and some are even hoping the restrictions will continue for another while so they can keep getting the payment. Meanwhile a lot of them are working on the sly. Donald Trump is a figure of scorn and if you try to point out to them what’s really going on you are a case for the asylum. Obama is their God and they really believe he has Irish ancestry. If you mention the hypocritical reaction of the Bishops and priests and the fact that they’re all gone AWOL, you’ll be told like I was that your full of pride, for daring to suggest that they are complicit in the whole affair starting from the top. You’ll be told your against the church and the Pope with a moral indignation that would amaze you. And all this I might add from daily Mass goers, and not a peep out of them now with the Mass suspended? So I agree with the Editor, here in once Catholic Ireland I for one see no reason for optimism with regard to ordinary people rising up against this tyranny.

    • Bill

      That’s because Satan now has the strongest grip in the countries that were once the most Catholic. Ireland has apostatised from the Faith and is paying the price for its folly. It’s a bad day when those of remaining Catholic, including a good bunch in Ireland, find ourselves with more in common morally with the Orangemen of the North than the Catholics of the South. It’s actually surreal.

      You’ll know the famous song “If you ever go across the sea to Ireland”. Well, here’s the verse that shows how Ireland has betrayed both its holy religion and its forefathers who stood firm in persecution for centuries defending it.

      “Yet the strangers came and tried to teach us their ways,
      And they scorned us just for being what we are,
      But they might as well go chasin’ after moon beams,
      Or light a penny candle from a star.”

      We rightly mourn the loss of Catholic Ireland, once such a stalwart of the Church, now blind and lost.

        • Bill

          I’m sure some were conformist, but there were too many really good Irish priests for that to have been the general norm. No, I think a lot of Irish Catholics back then were the real deal. It’s almost all gone now, though.

        • Bill,

          That’s what the enemies of the Faith say to downplay the importance of the Church in Ireland throughout its history. This is how they like to portray the Church, as forcing belief, making everyone pretend to believe. Don’t fall for it. It’s what they call today “a false narrative” designed to rubbish Holy Mother Church. Ireland wasn’t known as the land of saints and scholars for nothing, and the natural culture that used to hallmark the Irish was a consequence of the Faith. I remember thinking how crude and lacking culture were the people I met on the street in the days leading up to the abortion referendum. When the Faith goes, the Morals (and the inherent culture) quickly follow.

          • Editor,
            No argument with you there.
            I wasn’t really thinking of generations past who were proved by fire and sword. But something me thinks went astray within the last 30 to 40 years in Ireland. One could point to any number of events clerical and lay that broke the backbone and resolve of Irish Catholics at that crucial period, that spawned the present crop who at the ballot box spat in the face of God not once or twice but three times in as many years. On the eve of the first appearance of Our Lady at the Cova da Iria, the only explanation I can think of comes from the Mother of God herself, a universal diabolical disorientation of the powers that be that fed into the masses.

    • Bill,

      Your use of the word “venom” reminded me of the frequent reaction our dear Editor encountered when she sallied forth to Ireland, in 2018 I believe, to advocate against abortion legislation.

      I wonder if Ireland without the Catholic Faith could just be re-named IRE-land.

      • RCAVictor,
        I suppose after the fairly recent Referendums ,and the gloating and mockery that ensued at Dublin Castle in the aftermath one shouldn’t be surprised at the present state of affairs. There’s still a goodly size of people I’d say who are still believers but are cowed down by the ruling class and the National media RTE , supposedly a public broadcaster but who toe the Government line at will. There are a few rumblings here and there, and only time will tell if it will amount to anything, and the fighting Irish spirit will rise up and kick the backsides of those apostates. But I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    • Obama does have Irish ancestry on his mother’s side. She had predominantly English ancestry, but with some Irish, along with other European countries.

  9. Dear Editor,
    it truly is sad to think that tomorrow being the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima will have to be celebrated without any pilgrims. Let us all say a special rosary.

    Bill and our great Tenor singing Galway Bay – RCAVictor, yes the land of my birth is a disaster zone. The last (latest) referendum caused me to put pen to paper as follows :

    IRISH LAMENT

    I am lonesome and sad
    My own jeremiad,
    With Ireland’s pact with the devil
    To the land of my birth;
    I must give a wide berth
    As I watch the Satanists revel,
    At new life being destroyed
    With planned infanticide.

    They resisted Cromwell
    But adopted Orwell,
    And Soros’s New World Order
    Legalised sodomy;
    Negated syngamy
    Welcoming wolves ‘cross the border,
    They all cheered in the street
    Made Gods Law obsolete.

    They ‘Don’t know what they do’
    Their descendants will rue,
    The crooked path to perdition
    Will they turn the clock back;
    Not bow down to the claque
    Restore our Nations tradition,
    Give satan comeuppance
    He’s worth less than tuppence.

    What real chance do we stand
    To regain Old Ireland,
    With Globalists now in control
    Our proud fore bearers weep;
    For a nation of sheep
    Sheared down to the depths of their soul,
    Our ancestors great pain
    Was all suffering in vain.

    Patrick Healy

  10. Athanasius,

    Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxi mea culpa,

    I should have known that you were the soprano lilting Galway Bay above.
    I attributed RCAVictor to that recording, hardly surprising really as he is prone to spinning discs.

    God Bless

    • Patrick Healy

      Just one minor correction, I’m more baritone than soprano. It’s the fags, or, to avoid any awkward confusion in RCAVictor’s American mind, the cigarettes!

      • Athanasius,

        I wonder what the rainbow crowd will do with the name of the bassoon, which, in Italian, is:

        “Fagotto”

  11. It could soon be a criminal offence to post any anti-vaccine views on Catholic Truth Scotland, or any other social media in the UK. Using the excuse that the UK lost its official measles-free country status due to a steady fall in MMR immunisation rates, Law Commissioner Penney Lewis is considering criminalising what she deems ‘posting false information that endangers lives.’ It appears Matt Hancock is seriously considering making MMR vaccines compulsory for state school pupils. One wonders if Matt Hancock and Bill Gates discussed any other vaccines to be made compulsory when they met each other last year.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/02/01/posting-anti-vaccine-propaganda-social-media-could-become-criminal/

  12. Here’s something which came into my inbox from a correspondent in the States earlier today. A reminder of something very significant indeed, about this President, White House and Fatima…

    Email from the USA reads…

    On inauguration night, Father Andrew Mahana exorcised the White House and presented a statue of Lady of Fatima kept there today.

    Father Mahana was invited by President Trump’s inaugural committee to his inauguration to discuss with him shaping Middle East policy to benefit persecuted Christians.

    Trump and [Fr] Mahana are friends: at a campaign rally in Greeley, Colorado he pointed at the priest and asked the crowd to loud applause: “does everyone here know Father Andre?”

    During his January 20th, 2017 meeting with President Trump, Father Mahana presented him a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and a rosary. Trump asked if he could keep both when he first moved in. Ends.

    I remembered that we ran a discussion thread on this some time ago… Here’s the photo…

    • Editor,

      If Donald Trump had the White House exorcised, that means he is fully aware of the Satanic network of pedophiles at the highest levels of the American government – as exposed by the John Podesta emails about “spirit cooking” (a Satanic ritual) and “pizza”, and which also implicates Obama, who in one email is said to be bringing “pizza and hot dogs” to a gathering in Chicago.

      In the lingo of this depraved network, pizza = underage girls, and hot dogs = underage boys.

      Our “Deep State,” you see, involves a whole lot more than just financial corruption and the abuse of power…

      • RCA Victor,

        If anything calls for a “WOW!” response it’s the information in your comment underneath the photo. WOW! I’m speechless, apart from my WOW!

        • Editor,

          I was going to write an article on the Satanic roots and nature of rock music, but I had to stop. The information was too scary and unsettling. The adherents of Satanism are everywhere in the entertainment industry and in politics.

          • RCAVictor

            Hardly surprising for a man who wrote these Communist lyrics:

            Imagine there’s no Heaven
            It’s easy if you try
            No Hell below us
            Above us only sky
            Imagine all the people livin’ for today
            Ah, ah, ah-ah

            Imagine there’s no countries
            It isn’t hard to do
            Nothin’ to kill or die for
            And no religion, too
            Imagine all the people livin’ life in peace
            Yoo, hoo, oo-oo

            You may say I’m a dreamer
            But I’m not the only one
            I hope some day you’ll join us
            And the world will be one

            Imagine no possessions
            I wonder if you can
            No need for greed or hunger
            A brotherhood of man
            Imagine all the people sharin’ all the world
            Yoo, hoo, oo-oo

            Yop. hoo indeed!

    • Athanasius,

      I hope and pray you are correct. That conversion would grant him untold graces in his fight against the NWO. I’d be willing to bet a bowl of haggis, however, that it wouldn’t make much difference to the bishops of the USCCB, most of whom are in bed with the Democrat Party, and for whom the Trump agenda is anathema.

      It might create a small problem for Pope Francis, though, who has claimed that Trump is not “Christian’!

      • RCA Victor,

        Earlier today, I saw a video clip from one of Prager U’s “Fireside Chats” where Dennis Prager was answering a question about why the drug (which I can’t spell!) shown to work in curing those suffering from the virus, isn’t being used, and the answer was that those fighting against its use hate Trump more than they care about the sick. Makes their persistent “stay safe” mantra ring hollow.

        Let’s pray especially for Donald Trump today, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, which is now almost ten minutes old on this side of The Pond!

        Our Lady of Fatima, pray for him!

        • Editor,

          That drug would be Hydroxychloroquine, the malaria medication. And there is an even bigger reason, besides Trump Derangement Syndrome, why its use is being suppressed: there’s no profit in it for Big Pharma, more specifically, for Bill Gates-owned companies, who are developing a vaccine (for a disease that doesn’t exist, according to Dr. Kaufman!).

      • RCAVictor

        I fear Donald Trump is destined to lose the Presidency in November given the intrigue of Fauci and the like that has seen him tank the U.S. economy and go along with lockdowns, even if not fully. I think he has fallen for some of this stuff under pressure from advisors and the media, as Nigel Farage has here in the UK. If I’m right, and I have never before wanted to be so wrong, the NWO will be firmly established by the end of this year, Trump will be out of office, the EU will be dismantled as a result of in-fighting between Germany, Italy, Spain and France, and a new global totalitarianism along the lines of Chinese Communist rule under a new global government setup will be permanently fixed. I do think Trump will convert to the faith, but I doubt it will be during his term as President.

        This has been so carefully crafted for so long that only divine intervention can now stop the entire world falling under the Communist yoke. If you look at everything they’re doing, it’s all along Communist Beijing lines from house arrest to forced vaccinations to suggestions of new laws to remove people from their homes. It’s absolutely classic Communism straight from China, though originating in Russia.

        • Athanasius,

          I’m also dreading that possibility, but I think it is based on an assumption which may not be correct – though it is the assumption that Trump’s enemies are making. Namely, that destroying the economy destroys Trump.

          I think there is a rapidly growing awareness over here that this “pandemic” is nothing of the sort, that it is highly politicized and directed against Trump, and even that the universal vaccination/population control agenda is behind it. While volunteering at a local food pantry this afternoon, I discovered that two other volunteers shared my opinion that this is all a contrived hoax…and this in a social service agency, in a profession notorious for harboring liberal personnel.

          In fact, Trump tweeted earlier today accusing Democrat governors of continuing the lockdown in their states to try to undermine his re-election!

          I think I am more leery of the latest Democrat push for write-in voting, which will open up a real Pandora’s Box of vote fraud – likely, of course, to benefit them.

          • RCAVictor

            It’s interesting that you mention “write-in voting” because the Marxist SNP government in Scotland is at the same game. It’s easy to commit electoral fraud with postal votes, but to balance things even further in their favour they want to give the vote to immigrants and 16-year olds, knowing how easy it is to sway incautious youth. In fine, they’ll resort to every dirty criminal trick in the book to win.

            As for the November elections, it wasn’t just the economy I was thinking of. It happens that even when people know a leader is not directly responsible for suffering that the State has inflicted upon them, they need someone to blame for the mess. I’m always reminded of Churchill being voted out of office at the end of the war. Here was this great war figure, the man who kept the spirits of the people up during the country’s darkest hour, yet they voted him out of office without so much as a second thought. It’s that human inclination to lay blame on leaders who are not at fault that worries me.

            The only hope is that, faced with a man as corrupt and mentally decrepit as Joe Biden, a lot may think twice and decide that Trump is worth a second term, if only because he has his full faculties. I really hope he wipes the floor with the Democrats, but he’s up against very real evil forces.

            • RCAVictor
              Of all the candidates that the Democrats could choose to run against Trump,that they pick an imbicile like Biden defies all logic unless he’s just a stooge to be taken out of the way at the right time. It could be
              A cunning calculation that Biden’s condition would elicit a groundswell of sympathy and thus nolify Trump’s forceful Campaigning so as not to look like he was bullying a clearly befuddled Biden. Of course the media would play a major part and present Biden as a loving and gentle grand father figure who only wanted what was best for America and the world. Biden could turn on the waterworks and wail about the economy and poverty etc, all scripted for him of course, and it wouldn’t be too much a stretch of the imagination to see that it could work. It would take someone really good to outdo Trump in open combat, as Clinton found out, but what if you take the wind out of Trump’s sail at the start?.

              • Bill,

                It’s hard to tell what the Democrats are thinking in nominating Biden, who, in addition to his rapidly progressing dementia, now has at least one sexual abuse charge against him. Not to mention his involvement in Obamagate and the Ukraine.

                All this was made even more puzzling by the obvious upper echelon-directed removal of Bernie Sanders from the race. The story line was that Sanders was way too far left to stand a chance against Trump, but actually he would have been more popular with his fellow travelers.

                I agree with one writer on the American Thinker website who proposed that the Democrats know they have no chance of beating Trump this year, so they are propping up Biden as a sacrificial lamb, meanwhile doing all they can to destroy the electoral process. It’s called “Biden your time.”

                It’s a similar strategy used by the Republicans in 1996, when they nominated Bob Dole to run against Bill Clinton. Dole was a doddering old guy with fairly good credentials but absolutely no charisma and no chance of beating Clinton.

                But back to the Democrats: when you are a bunch of Satan-worshiping pedophiles, your thought process is automatically going to be quite clouded…

              • RCAVictor

                That is heartening news, I hope it is a sign of great things to come in November. The good thing is it’s the Democratic State Governors who are doing the most totalitarian lockdowns, which is likely to result in many of them being kicked out of office…we hope and pray!

                • Athanasius,

                  The interesting thing about the California victory was that it occurred in spite of “ballot harvesting,” another Democrat Party trick to swing elections in their favor.

                  I wonder if the lockdown has put a serious crimp in that subversive procedure…

            • Athanasius,

              I’m afraid Churchill has a very mixed reputation. I don’t think of him as a war hero, to be honest.

              I do agree though that Trump should not be punished because of this shocking virus/lockdown. I don’t know how, I’m not saying there is no virus or it’s been manufactured, I’m not saying that, but however they did it, I firmly believe that China has deliberately brought this situation about in order to bring down Trump, and to get on with their ultimate agenda and goal which is to rule the world. That has always been the Communist’s goal and it’s not going to change now. Their coercive methods have worked in China and they’re working here, so why not just keep going?

              I don’t think they expected Trump to fight back and cancel their trade deal and they will be relying on him losing the election in November, but IMHO, he won’t lose it. I think the American people are too savvy to blame him.

              • Nicky

                You’re absolutely right to suggest that China is behind this with a view to gaining world domination, it ties in with some 100 year deadline I read about when China is set to take over the world, though I can’t remember where I read it.

                One of the big giveaways is that all the lockdown countries are imitating China, the first to impose totalitarian lockdown, and, if things move in the direction we think, they will soon imitate China through the track and trace followed by removal from your house. The entire thing is Communist and totalitarian yet most people are walking blindly, and approvingly, into it. Even Nigel Farage seems to have bought into the Covid-19 scam, answers no emails or questions opposing it.

    • Do you think Trump will have the patience to await the annulment of his first marriage? I find the comments in support of Trump on this blog puzzling. He is an adulterer and does not live his life in accordance with church teachings, but you rail against the Pope for writing Amoris Laetitia and blessing the Argentine President’s marriage.

      • Catholic Convert 1,

        Given that you are a convert yourself, you would think you would know that God works in all sorts of different and mysterious ways to bring people to the faith. Who is to say when and how Trump’s conversion would come about, if it comes about?

        To be honest, though, I am puzzled that your instructions in the faith have been so flawed that you can’t see the difference between someone (not a Catholic) who “is an adulterer and does not live his life in accordance with church teachings” and a POPE who encourages adultery! There’s a big difference! LOL!

      • CC

        The Pope was born and raised a Catholic, therefore we expect him to behave like one at all times. Trump was born and raised a non-Catholic, so we hope for his conversion with prayer and patience rather than harsh judgment, allowing for ignorance.

        But there’s another obvious difference between Trump and Pope Francis, which is that Trump is an honest man of good will who fears not to uphold the precious lives of unborn children while the Pope says nothing. I’m sure you’ll agree that that single act by Trump will win much grace and mercy from God for him and his family, assuming he is well disposed to receive it, which I think he is. No one here approves of his adultery, just as we wouldn’t have approved the woman in the Gospel caught in adultery. As Catholics imitating Our Lord, though, we would rather pray and hope for his conversion than be ready to pick up stones to throw at him.

  13. Here is an American police officer exhorting his fellow officers to stop violating citizen’s Constitutional rights:

    (He is about to be fired for disobeying his superior’s orders to take down the video, only a few hours after the same superior applauded what he said in the video. In other words, the political stooges in charge made their wishes known: you can’t disagree with The Narrative!)

    • RCAVictor

      I hope he sues if they fire him for exercising his right to free speech and upholding the law. It’s what they’re doing that’s unlawful, against the Constitution.

    • RCA Victor,

      What a brave officer! It would be a real crime if he is dismissed or disciplined.

      I think we need to all do that – challenge any police officer who stops us or tells us to move on, etc. We have (as a population) been much too co-operative with all of this. That’s how this totalitarianism could become permanent. When a government sees people accepting this authoritarianism why wouldn’t they keep them under control in this way.

      God bless that policeman. I hope he’s not the only one who thinks like that.

    • RCA Victor,

      That is a very powerful video and what a first class police officer.

      I’ve just copied the link from YouTube and emailed it to Police Scotland. Not sure when my case will come to court, but I’ll try to keep you updated !

    • RCA Victor,

      What a first class police officer – if he is fired it will be a real scandal. Praying for him.

  14. On this feast day would anyone be able to provide a good link so I can learn more about Fatima apparitions? There’s so much online I don’t know what’s safe.

    Editor: the most reliable website for information about Fatima, is http://www.fatima.org and if you click on the section at the top of the page marked Fatima in Depth you will find all the facts there.

    • Editor

      Many thanks. I will have a good read. I grew up reading very little about anything, nevermind apparitions. I only really knew about Lourdes.

      • Graham,

        My pleasure. I can remember talking with classmates about Fatima as a young person at secondary school. I even recall the excitement within our classroom group in 1960, as we anticipated the revealing of the Third Secret, with all the guesses as to what it might be about. Schoolgirls, kids, just think of it! I’ve yet to meet a young person in their senior years in a Catholic school who’ve heard of Fatima or knows much, if anything, about it, let alone 12 or 13 year olds. I see now, how blessed we were to be the last generation through who benefited from anything remotely resembling a genuinely Catholic education.

        You have my sympathy, therefore and I have no doubt that you will be astonished at what you read about Fatima – not least the miracle of the sun, attested by eye-witnesses and secular newspapers at the time, including the conversions of hitherto hardened Communist atheists on the spot.

  15. I was just thinking that – unlike other Feast days – it’s not really appropriate to wish everyone a “happy Feast Day” given the gravity of the Fatima prophecies/warnings.

    Then I realised that it’s very appropriate. God in His mercy has given us these warnings to prepare us for what we are actually living through at this time: the apparent beginning of totalitarian government.

    Alarm bells should be ringing after watching those Chinese people (in the Dr Kaufman video) being pulled violently from their homes by Chinese government officials. The World Health Organisation is warning us that we can expect to receive visits from specially trained “contact investigators”, who are authorised to enter our homes to test us for the virus, remove any member of the family who tests positive and take that person to a central place of quarantine. As pointed out in the video, those images were sent out deliberately to warn us of the danger of non-compliance.

    The clip shown on the Dr Kaufman video (which should really have been placed right at the start of that video) should make us aware of the great grace of the Fatima apparitions and the cure given to us through Fatima, the cure, not just of the virus but of the entire diabolical disorientation and the spread of totalitarianism, which will definitely be effected by the proper Consecration of Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart. To that end we must pray especially today.

    Our Lady of Fatima, Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!

    • Editor,

      I was sick to my stomach watching those Chinese officials pulling those poor people from their homes – how terrifying was that! At one time I would have said no way could that ever happen here, but after reading up the factual information given on this blog I am not at all so sure. Just the fact that the WHO is telling us that there may be a necessity to send officials into our homes to test us and remove those testing positive, is a bombshell.

      My problem is, neither my family or friends see anything sinister. They keep saying that people are dying, they’re infected with something, why would the government do this, etc.

      I need help in explaining it, please. Any tips will be welcome.

      • Josephine,

        I’m hearing this a lot, people won’t listen, they’ve all bought into the propaganda.

        So, what I’ve done is I’ve typed up and printed off a single page on A4 paper. I listed the extract from the Remnant newspaper giving the 9 USA states with low to zero death rates due to no-lockdown and I give the link to the article. Then I put a couple of links on to videos and this blog, noting that there is a lot about the Coronavirus crisis on this site, and when I get the opportunity, I ask if this or that person would like a copy of some facts; so far, all have said yes, but after that, who cares is my attitude.

        If grown up adults can watch this fiasco around them and fall for the propaganda, then, frankly, they deserve exactly what’s coming to them. And guess what? When full-blown totalitarianism arrives (which it may do for a time, until the Consecration of Russia takes place) they are unlikely to blink an eyelid.

        We’ve seen Theology for Dummies, well here comes Politics for Dummies.

      • Josephine,

        Here’s a little ammo for your A4:

        https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/05/if_the_media_told_the_truth_about_covid_19_the_public_would_feel_safe_going_to_work_and_play.html

        Also, somewhat of a background summary I put together:

        This so-called pandemic is characterized by fraud from A-Z, from being planned as far back as 2010 in a Rockefeller Foundation paper; predicted in 2017 by Fauci himself, in a speech at Georgetown Univ.; the response practiced a mere 6 weeks before the Wuhan outbreak by a seminar called “Event 201” at Johns Hopkins University; death projections based entirely on fraudulent computer projections by Neil Ferguson; the mis-identification of improperly isolated lung fluid samples; tests that do not actually test for any disease – only for antibodies from an undetermined cause; the often fatal mis-treatment of breathing problems with ventilators instead of with oxygen; the suppression of effective medication because Big Pharma won’t profit from it; the dystopian enforcement of measures that actually will make sickness worse and weaken immunity (face masks, social distancing and quarantining) by reducing natural immunities, the widespread falsifying of death records, the suppression of videos by YouTube/Google and Twitter that expose “The Narrative.”

  16. I am appalled by some of what I have just been reading here. There used to be a saying that an Englishman’s home is his castle. This used to be an inviolate truth. I happen to be a Justice of the Peace. I know that I don’t live in England (or Scotland) but the principle used to be that no one could enter your home unless you invited them in. That is why a Search Warrant is such a precious document and one which I have always taken great care over. The point is that I, as a JP, had to be completely satisfied in my own mind that I could defend my decision to grant the police a Search Warrant that evidence existed within that house which showed that the Law had been broken and would bring about a conviction in Court of some guilty person or persons. When I granted a Search Warrant I was taking away from someone their inalienable right to privacy within their own home. If I got that decision wrong then I was the person who could be arraigned.in Court for the decision which I had made! That said, I can only remember once refusing to sign a Search Warrant for the Police.
    As an aside, the concept of Justices of the Peace is something which has its origins in the Crusades and is only to be found in the world after British Colonisation… and that goes for America also!

  17. Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera is being investigated by police for ‘breaking quarantine’ by blessing a small crowd on the loggia of his cathedral on the city patronal feast day.

  18. A very happy Feast of Our Lady of Fatima – without the warnings given to us from 1917 just before the Communists took over in Russia, we would not have been aware that Communism would spread to our shores.

    Our Lady, please come to our aid!

  19. Happy Feast of Our Lady of Fatima to one and all at CT.

    I agree with those who point out that we would be as ignorant as the rest of the population of the UK seem to be about this “lockdown” only for the Fatima prophecies about the spread of Communism. It’s certainly spread and we are racing towards totalitarian one-world government, of that I have no doubt whatsoever.

  20. The Dr Kaufman video link above has been censored. In case anybody hasn’t yet seen it, or wish to to send to contacts, please use link below.

    • Francesomarta

      You know you’re living under Communist rule when free speech is censored. YouTube is definitely in the hands of some evil people, fully supportive of China and the lying WHO. Western governments that still value freedom of speech should ban YouTube from their countries, but we know that’s unlikely to happen. Our Lady will deal with YouTube in due course.

      • ATHANASIUS

        The censors on YOUTUBE will delete any Doctor who disagrees with the corrupt WHO. An organisation which appears to function as an off shoot of Chinese state media. In other words YOUTUBE is controlled by the Chinese communists.

        Our Lady of Fatima, Pray for us!

    • Francescomarta

      I don’t understand this – the Dr Kaufman video posted above earlier, states it’s been removed by YouTube, yet here it is, again, on YouTube.

      Signed Puzzled, Glasgow…

      PS to those who have not seen this video before, I suggest you scroll along to 30 where the piece about the WHO / United States preparation to enter homes and test people, forcibly removing people if necessary, begins.

      And if we have any technically savvy people who can take that section out and post it separately either on YouTube or, better still, on an uncensored site, that would be great. Obviously, I mean if that is legally possible – do not, whatever you do, break any laws of the land. Even the professional crooks are staying at home these days, so the chances of you being caught have just shot up 😀

      • I am not sure myself how this video clip was not censored, except maybe two video threads were downloaded and one got through the censors and the other didn’t (if that makes sense).
        Found this clip and it has not been censored by China and Bill gates yet (sorry I mean YOUTUBE)

        • Francescomarta,

          Thank you for that – I’ve only seen snippets of that interview on other videos, so I look forward to seeing the whole thing later.

  21. Happy Feast of Our lady of Fatima to everyone.

    It is terrifying to think, that, for the lack of the Pope and Bishops who will not and have not Consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we are heading into a totalitarian one-world government with such indecent haste.

    Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

    • Theresa Rose,

      Thank you SO much for those few minutes of sheer beauty. I’ve never seen/heard that video before – utterly beautiful. Thank you.

  22. Hello, folks,

    I’ve just popped in quickly with a couple of bits of news and a suggestion.

    I had a telephone chat with a friend a short while ago and she told me that she knows first-hand about at least two people in Glasgow who have been stopped by the police – and this was early on in the lockdown. Seems that Police Scotland cracked down from the get-go.

    The first example is a nurse who was on her way in the early morning to begin her shift at a Glasgow hospital. Incredibly, not only did the police question her about where she was going and why, but, when she could not give them any documentary evidence, they told her to make sure her employer gave her a letter to carry with her in future, proving that she was a nurse at the hospital. Done and dusted. So, now she can produce the letter if (or, rather, when) she is stopped again.

    The second example is another Glasgow woman who offered a neighbour a lift in her car to take her to the shops. Stopped by the police and questioned, the driver was let off with a warning not to transport people who are not living with her, and the passenger was issued a fine of £60. Unbelievable.

    Things are moving very quickly indeed – I’m not sure what we can do in terms of political fightback because there doesn’t seem to be anyone in the political world who is challenging any of this.

    Spiritually, though, and this is why I’m typing ten to the dozen before the end of the Fatima Feast – I suggest this (which my friend mentioned on the phone, a most timeous and probably providential reminder to us all): as well as praying our rosary etc. it would be beneficial, surely, to consecrate ourselves to Our Lady, using the total consecration of St Louis Marie De Montford. There is no need to worry about the introductory part, the fasting etc and the 33 days preparation – Our Lady will be very pleased if we consecrate ourselves, or renew our consecration, before midnight, to entrust ourselves to Our Lady of Fatima at this time of huge trial, set to worsen in the months ahead. This started off as a three weeks lockdown, remember, but gradually it has increased and we’re now talking about October…. then we are talking about 18 months to 2 years when a vaccine is found etc. The truth is, there will be no end to this until the Pope consecrates Russia in the manner prescribed at Fatima. Here’s the link to the consecration – if you’d like to consecrate yourself on this Feast, there’s still over an hour left if you live in the UK – scroll down to The Day of Consecration to where it says The words of consecration are:

  23. I am aware that this topic is now petering out but maybe there is just a little space from one last burst from me. I have said above that we here in Western Australia have actually less problems that you good folks have in this time of the coronavirus pandemic. Well our churches will reopen next Monday and I have just spoken to my Parish Priest and he will be opening my Parish Church on Monday and he will offer Holy Mass twice every weekday while obeying the restriction which out State government is imposing of no more than 20 people within the church for Mass. This is a bit of a tricky one but we will come by having everyone registered for the particular Mass. I have booked myself in for the 7am Mass on the five weekdays of each week and, speaking to my Parish Priest he agrees. So, I will be at Mass at 7am next Monday morning and I will continue being present at Mass for each of the following four Masses next week up to Friday Mass.
    Who would have guessed that this would happen in my parish next week?

      Firstly, worry not, this thread is not “petering out” – it remains open and since Fatima is at the heart of this tyrannical lockdown, it will remain open indefinitely. There will be no shortage, sadly, of other Coronagate/Wuhan Flu threads, but always the Fatima prophecies will be central and it may be, in some cases, that this thread will be the most appropriate. This thread, in particular, has been praised by phone by readers who say they have learned SO much from it, so it will be a useful resource for the duration, be assured.

      Secondly, I’m pleased that you are soon to have Mass provision, but it dismays me to see the clergy going along so readily with the restrictions. A tyrant’s dream. I am puzzled as to why they don’t cite the critics who argue that social distancing is irrelevant, makes no difference, not scientific… (found only online, not on any news broadcasts which are clearly now effectively State-controlled)

      Then, however I recall that the mass of the population, including bishops and priests, have fallen for the propaganda. They are worried about their health. And they question nothing.

  24. Editor,

    Can you tell me why post in reply to Athanasius’s comments on Churchill above has not been published? Did you remove it, or did I not post it correctly?
    Editor: another blogger had made the point that Churchill had a mixed reputation and was not universally regarded as a “hero” (words to that effect). So, that point was made. Yours was a lengthy post which, despite your introductory disclaimer, was highly political, and thus not suitable for this blog, as I’ve pointed out to you more than once. As for what happened to it – if you recall, due to your persistent comments on matters political, despite requests to desist, you were moved into quarantine moderation, so I’m afraid I didn’t release your Churchill comment. Athanasius had made a passing remark about Churchill, another blogger took a different view and said so, thus we did not need a full-blown History of Sir Winston Churchill, by Catholic Convert ! 😀

    • Athanasius made a political statement by praising a controversial political figure. Yet you do not put him into moderation. You have your favourites on here. That’s been obvious for a while. Other bloggers said they were voting for the Conservative Party to deliver Brexit, and criticised other parties, and myself for voting Labour. This blog regularly praises Trump and denounces the Democrats and is therefore political.

      Editor: I have removed all the personal remarks from this latest comment and, as you can see, it is being published so you are wrong about being censored. You give examples of what you see to be “political” bias in the comments of some of us on this blog, but you are wrong. We discussed Brexit, yes, but that was a cross-party issue and we discuss pro-life issues, but there are no parties at all in the UK which are pro-life. Party politics is at the centre of your life, it seems, but it is not the purpose of this blog to discuss Party politics. When politics enters into our discussions, as it does, of course, then it is by reference to how this or that political person or issue relates to the requirements of our Faith.

      Donald Trump is the first ever President to address a pro-life rally and his exorcism of the White House after so many years of left-wing evil being perpetrated from that address means we support him. The Democrats, on the other hand, are guilty of perpetrating evil – big time – beginning with the murder of babies even after birth and celebrating it openly. So, it would be shocking if we supported them in any way. If you don’t like us, then don’t bother blogging here. But let go of the nonsense that I have “favourites” – that’s what the trolls and troublemakers have been saying for years. Idiots. It’s ridiculously childish.

      If you don’t return to blog, that’s fine – thank you for your input over the years. If you DO return, then please give up trying to propagate Labour party politics. Having been raised in a devotedly Labour-voting family, I’ve now seen the light, which means I don’t vote for any of the political parties – they’re all anti-God and I cannot, for the life of me, see how you, as a convert to the Faith, can justify your devotion to any Party, given that they are all full of hatred for Christ and His Church. I admire those, like Trump, who are fighting the evils of the New World Order (totalitarian one-world government) which will (as we are already finding out) affect our religious freedom, big time, a man who begins every Cabinet meeting with a prayer and who called a day of prayer at the start of this virus crisis, but, as for the rest… not interested, so, if you choose to leave us, so be it. I’ll get over the heartbreak in time 😀
