Bishop Condemns Medjugorje Hoax

mejugorje-scammedBishop Peric: “the woman who appears” behaves quite differently from the true Mary… She often does not speak first, she has a strange laugh, she disappears after certain questions and then returns: she obeys the ‘visionaries’ and priests to come down from the hill to the church, though reluctantly. She is not sure how much time she will be visible, allows some of the ‘visionaries’ to stand on her veil which is on the ground, allows others to touch her clothes and body. This really is not Our Lady from the Gospel” said Bishop Ratko Peric.  Click here to read entire report

Comment:

Unconscionably, priests and bishops here in Scotland and the wider UK are encouraging “pilgrimages” to this unapproved site.  The so-called Catholic newspapers carry advertisements for the hoax, making money out of this mockery of Our Lady, and cardinals who ignore and suppress the full Message of Fatima, support the scam.  Why?

As for the Pope’s appointment of a special envoy to Medjugorje to investigate the “pastoral” needs of the faithful… Clearly, given the above extract alone, anyone who falls for this hoax needs professional help – of the kind that priests are not qualified to offer!  Or maybe you disagree?

Competition: Name Helen’s House!

newhouseBlogger Helen is moving house and keen to find a name for her new abode. All ideas welcome, but she’s especially keen to find a “Marian” name. Being of simple mind, I suggested “Marian House” but – although I’m sure she’s added it to her list – I don’t think it quite cut the mustard. 

So, over to you lot.  

Can YOU find the perfect name for Helen’s new house?

Note, the blogger who submits the winning entry will be flown to the Vatican where a private meeting with Pope Francis will take place. If the winning blogger can get HIM to change HIS name (preferably to Pius XIII) then said winning blogger will also be flown back home! 

Bloggers may submit more than one suggested name.  In fact, bloggers may submit as many as they wish. All will be given serious consideration. So, let the competition begin!  

13/10 Fatima: Miracle of the Sun

Today, 13th October is the 99th anniversary of the miracle of the sun at Fatima.  This thread allows us to reflect on the fact that God has given us an amazing miracle to underline the gravity of the Fatima prophecies, and yet, despite this astonishing miracle (eye witness account linked below), popes and prelates, priests and people continue to treat Fatima as if it were no more than a private revelation.  Click here to read an explanation from Fr Gruner RIP, about the three kinds of revelation.

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

October: Month of the Holy Rosary…

Comment:

This thread is to pay tribute to Our Lady in the special Month of her Holy Rosary.  As ever, feel free to comment, post stories of any favours received through the Rosary that you know of personally, your favourite hymns – lyrics and videos  – I couldn’t find the hymn O Queen of the Holy Rosary except in its American version, so if anyone can find the tune we sing in our neck of the woods on YouTube, please post it here.  This is also the month of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima (October 13th) so Fatima will, no doubt, feature large in this thread. Let’s pray especially this month for the Synod on the Family which will take place 4-25th… O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us!
