In the spring and summer of 1916, nine years old Lucia Santos And his cousin Jacinta and Francisco Marto Fatima of Portugal was herding sheep in Cova da Iria, near her hometown of Aljustrel in the Parish. They later said that they had met three times at the appearance of an angel. They said that the angel, who identified himself as the “angel of peace” and the “angel of Portugal,” taught them prayer.
On May 13, 1917, the children told a woman that “the brighter the sun, the brighter the rays of light filled with water, and the clearer and brighter the ray of light than a crystal goblet pierced by the sun’s burning rays.” The woman was wearing a white sheet with gold edges and a bead in her hand. He told them to dedicate themselves to the Holy Trinity and to pray “daily beads, bring peace to the world and end the war.” World War I ended in November 1918.
The woman met the children several times and asked them to prepare for a miracle for her last appearance on October 13.
On October 13, 1917, more than 70,000 people gathered in the rain to witness Fatima’s miracle.
The three children who initially claimed to have seen Our Lady of Fatima saw a vision panorama during the event, which included Jesus, Our Lady of Soros, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and St. Joseph blessing the people. According to the account, after some time of rain, the black cloud breaks and the sun appears in the sky as an opaque, rolling disc. It was said to be significantly duller than usual and to throw multi-colored light across the landscape, people and surrounding clouds. The sun was then reported to have focused on the earth before returning to its normal position. Witnesses reported that their previous wet clothes were “suddenly and completely dry, as well as wet and muddy soil that had previously been wet. That it had rained.”
Fatima’s miracle happened a century ago.
This past weekend, Pope Francis evaded the request of our Lady of Fatima.
John-Henry Westen reports on Lifesite News:
Our Lady of Fatima’s requests for the sanctification of Russia were very specific. In at least eight attempts over the last 100 years or so, Pope has failed miserably. And because of that, Russia’s promised full transformation and world peace have not been given to the world.
The best opportunity to sanctify Russia now presents itself, with the bishops of Ukraine begging the pope for the sanctity of Russia as requested by the Hour Lady when their own nation was under Russian invasion. This Sunday, however, Pope Francis indicated that he would not sanctify as requested by heaven.
The consequences could be catastrophic for the world. Our lady warned that if holiness is not accomplished, “various nations will perish.”
On Sunday, Pope Francis said he would sanctify “humanity” with an unadulterated heart. He said, “I invite every community and all faithful to join me on Friday, March 25, in the fullness of the declaration, the sanctity of humanity, especially in Russia and Ukraine, in the sacred law of Mary’s unadulterated heart, so that she, the Queen of Peace, may have our peace.” Can help. “
I just talked to one of the world’s leading experts on Fatima – lawyer and author John Salza, who has written two books on Fatima. In 2013, Salza published “The Holiness of Russia – How the Seven Pope Failed to Obey the Order of Heaven and Bringing Unrest to the Church and the World”, describing the failure of more than eight different popes’ attempts to achieve Russia’s sanctity. Rights
Although Heaven’s request – granted to Lucia Sr. in 1929 – was fairly simple, it has not yet been properly implemented. Our lady said, “The moment has come when God told the Holy Father to be created, and to command that by uniting with him and at the same time, all the bishops of the world sanctify Russia in my innocent heart, this prayer day and the promise to transform it for worldwide compensation.” Has been given. “
Salza mentions in his book that various consecrations have been performed but only one specifically mentions Russia and one does not include all the bishops of the world. Others have failed to specifically mention Russia.
