13 May: Feast of Our Lady of Fatima!

“The Message of Fatima
imposes an obligation on the Church”.… Pope John Paul II

FAQ…  from the Fatima Center website

1. What is a “consecration”?

A: It is a ceremony by which a person, group of persons, or thing is set apart as sacred and dedicated to the service of God or another sacred purpose.

2. What is meant by “the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary”?
A: At Fatima, on July 13, 1917, Our Lady told Sister Lucy that “God is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the Communions of reparation and for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart … In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, which will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Our Lady’s request is very simple: Russia—the fount of so much evil in the 20th Century—must be set apart and made sacred by its consecration to the Mother of God.

3. Why is it necessary to consecrate Russia in particular?
A: Because God wills it. As Our Lady told Sister Lucy at Fatima: “Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation …”

And as Sister Lucy disclosed in her published memoirs and letters, Our Lord Himself confided to her that He would not convert Russia unless the consecration were done, “Because I want My whole Church to recognize that consecration as a triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so that it may extend its cult later on, and put the devotion to this Immaculate Heart beside the devotion to My Sacred Heart.”

Sister Lucy has explained that because Russia is a well-defined territory, the conversion of Russia after its consecration to the Immaculate Heart would be undeniable proof that the conversion resulted from the consecration and nothing else. The establishment in the world of devotion to the Immaculate Heart would thus be confirmed by God Himself in the most dramatic manner.  Read rest of the Frequently Asked Questions about the Consecration of Russia here

Are We All Lutherans Now?

‘The Fatima Rapid Response Team distributed our leaflet, “Should a Catholic Celebrate Martin Luther?” to parishioners exiting Saturday Mass at the only Catholic church in Lund. The parish priest was displeased to the point of calling the police to try to stop us, but the police allowed us to continue as we behaved very peacefully. A few parishioners were thankful but many more were wary. Nevertheless, the team persuaded many to accept the leaflet with a promise to read it. We planted the mustard seed and remained after the priest turned out the lights and locked the door – to pray the Holy Rosary, asking God to enlighten them to the truths of the Catholic Faith and the diabolical character of Luther.’

Fatima Center Calls For Reparation

Special from the Fatima Center
December 22, 2015

Oklahoma City gave a satanist permission to publicly desecrate a statue of the Virgin Mary outside a Catholic Church on Christmas Eve. Our Lady of Sorrows2

Adam Daniels, the satanist who sponsored the ‘black mass’ in Oklahoma in 2014, plans to pour costume blood over a statue of Our Lady that has been “treated with sulfur powder and ash.” It appears it is a statue he will bring himself.

The outrage is scheduled to take place outside St. Joseph’s Old Cathedral on December 24 from 4:30 to 6:15 pm.

The Oklahoman newspaper described the upcoming atrocity as if it were nothing more than a small political rally or artist’s display: “The protest will be confined to the sidewalk and will not block any Church entrances, according to the permit obtained by Daniels. The permit also requires to clean up the display after the event to ensure no costume blood is left on the sidewalk.”

Welcome to 2015 USA, where government allows all the public blasphemy you care to provoke, provided you do it within the limits of your city-issued permit.

Daniels calls his blasphemous event the “Virgin Birth is a Lie,” which he describes as “exposing the lies” of the Catholic Church. The purpose of the blood, he said, is to “add another layer of corruption to Mary, which is an emblem of the Catholic Church.”

Daniels is also a convicted sex-offender, and had built an ‘altar to satan’ using rubble from the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. He used this rubble, he said, because it would have been “one of the most highly negative charges you could have … energy-wise.”

Breitbart news reports he is protesting the Catholic Church on Christmas Eve due to the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City’s recent demonstrations against the group’s ‘black mass,’ the unveiling of a Bahoment [satanic] statue, and Daniel’s own book-signing event.

In a sense, we could ignore this pathetic creature as one merely seeking to aggrandize himself. But as Our Lord told the 19th Century Sister Marie de Saint Pierre of France in messages approved by the Church, public desecration requires public reparation.

A group of concerned Catholics will attempt to occupy the area where the violation is slated to occur. They will also pray the Rosary in reparation.

The Fatima Center urges those who cannot be present in Oklahoma City to offer acts of reparation for this desecration, which is a pointed attack against Catholicism and Our Lady Herself.

You could pray an extra Rosary, make some extra sacrifices, offer prayers of reparation, make a Holy Hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament while the Oklahoma outrage is taking place, or make a Holy Hour at some other day or time that is more convenient. You can make reparation after the event as well.

Whatever you do, know well that Our Lady expects you to do something.

You could also register your complaint with Mayor Mick Cornett,* under whose administration this outrage is permitted. 

When Our Lady requested the Five First Saturdays, She said that one of the five blasphemies that require reparation concerns “the offense of those who outrage Her directly in Her Holy images.”

Please make some sort of reparation for this desecration. Count yourselves among the friends of Our Lady who, as She told Sister Lucia in 1929, have compassion on Our Lady’s Heart “circled with thorns,” and “make an act of reparation to remove them.”

Let us know what you plan to do in reparation. Contact us at: response@thefatimacenter.com
