Defeat of the rebellious angels Sebastiano Ricci
If you cannot be there  then DO SOMETHING FOR HEAVENS SAKE!   You may join spiritually with the Church in Oklahoma through prayer and fasting from meat, sweets or drink ect, for nine days along with the following prayers before the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Many souls go to hell because there are no one who are willing to pray and sacrifice for them!   We give the  novena and sacrifices as weapons for Our Lady and St. Michael to intervene! Spiritual battles must be fought with spiritual weapons!

"If the event involved stomping on the Koran, I bet the Civic Center would be calling for tolerance," said TFP Student Action Director, John Ritchie.  "But since the Black Mass calls for stomping on the Holy Eucharist, the Civic Center claims the event is 'educational' and deserves a public platform, which happens to be funded with Christian tax-dollars.  Shame on the Civic Center.  They're misusing the 1st Amendment as a billy club to beat God-loving Americans over the head.  It needs to stop."

Novena Exaltation of Holy Cross

We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee, for by thy Holy Cross thou hast redeemed the world!
Cross Jesus, Who because of Thy burning Love for us you willed to be crucified and to shed your Most Precious Blood for the Redemption and Salvation of our souls, look down upon us and grant the petition we humbly ask for (our prayer intention here: ...Send the Holy Angels to protect and defend your faithful against the evils  unleashed  in the offering of a public black mass September 21 in Oklahoma City.
Lord we trust completely in Thy Mercy. Cleanse us from sin by Thy Grace, sanctify our work, give us and all those who are dear to us our daily bread, lighten the burden of our sufferings, bless our families, and grant to the nations, so sorely afflicted, Thy Peace, which is the only True Peace, so that by obeying Thy Commandments we may come at last to the Glory of Heaven. Amen

Let us pray :  O God, Who, for the redemption of the world, was pleased to be born in a stable, and to die upon a Cross; O Lord Jesus Christ, by your Holy Sufferings, which we, your unworthy servants, devoutly call to mind, by your Holy Cross, and your Passion and Death, deliver us from the pains of hell, and vouchsafe to conduct us where you conducted the thief who was crucified with you. Who livest and reignest eternally in Heaven. Amen.

August Queen of Heaven, sovereign Mistress of the Angels, thou who didst receive from the beginning the mission and the power to crush the serpent’s head, we beseech thee to send thy holy angels, that under thy command and by thy power, they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into the abyss of woe.

Most holy Mother, send thy angels to defend us and to drive the cruel enemy from us.   

All ye holy angels and archangels, help and defend us.

O good and tender Mother Thou shalt ever be our Love and hope.

St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church come to our aid in this great battle against the forces of darkness.

St Michael the Archangel, summon the entire heavenly court in this fierce battle against the powers of hell and unclean spirits. 

Come O  prince of Heaven with the mighty sword. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke them we humbly pray and do thou O prince of the Heavenly hosts by the Divine power of God Cast into hell satan and all the other unclean spirits who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Excerpts below from TFP STUDENT ACTION…..
Urge our elected officials and civic leaders to stop the satanic “Black Mass” at the Oklahoma City Civic Center and stand up for the common good.  Because true Americans do not want their communities to become dens of satanic darkness.  Ever! True Americans do not want their children to grow up in a society where satanic black masses are considered normal and acceptable!
Sacrilege is not free speech. Sacrilege is not educational. Sacrilege is not American.
Down with satan!

Bishops of Oklahoma and an Exorcist give strong warnings not to attend proposed Black Mass

Last Supper Juan de Juanes (c. 1560)
Black Masses have taken place for centuries as long as there was a Church and the devil fighting against her. They were very hidden held in secret, only avowed satanists participated.  If they were caught they would have been tried and condemned to death.

So what’s the fuss? This is radically different. Society has degenerated to such a degree these demonic rituals are no longer done in secret but they are supported by the government in public buildings and promoted as entertainment under the guise of freedom of speech. However, there is a two sided coin in this. To these people Satan is their God and worshiping him is a real religious service.

Christians  can no longer display the 10 Commandments in government or public buildings.  The law also forbids Christians from displaying a crèche on public property during the Christmas season.  How is it that Oklahoma will soon allow a statue of Lucifer to be placed on public property near the state capital glorifying the worship of the devil sanctioned by the government. If Christians and Jews are no longer allowed to pray in government buildings before meetings yet one can attend a spiritual event labeled a black mass performed by Satanist who is a registered sex offender and using stolen property from the Catholic Church! ( Consecrated Host).

Statue of Lucifer to be placed at Oklahoma Capitol building Hirsch Files Blog
From the Hirsch Files Blog  Posted by  Laramise Hirsch
“Afraid to offend the Evil One and his minions, managers of the civic Center will weakly acquiesce as Satan places yet another foothold in Oklahoma’s capital. So, it seems that the complacence, ignorance, and relativism of my fellow countrymen has allowed the Prince of Darkness to set up shop in Oklahoma, here in the very heart of the United States. Shrines to evil such as we are witnessing in Oklahoma City do more than just generate controversy and press. It invites an evil clientele who is filled with malice and hate towards all that is good.  Openly allowing this kind of evil in our homeland will release untold numbers of demons in the region.”  Read More:…

Despite repeated requests to City officials, the September Event is Still Scheduled.

On the event ticket website, it is described as follows, “A Religious Black Mass will be conducted as a public event to help educate the public about Religious Satanism. “Enjoy the delights of the Devil.” The ritual has been toned down to meet the laws of Oklahoma and the rules of the government building.  

Archbishop Coakley of Oklahoma City, has implored city organizers, especially the board members of the Civic Center, to intervene and stop the Black Mass from taking place. “It is hard to imagine the Civic Center turning a blind eye and allowing a group to use its facilities to burn a copy of the Koran, or to conduct an overtly anti-Semitic performance. We're astonished and grieved that the Civic Center would promote as entertainment and sell tickets for an event that is very transparently a blasphemous mockery of the Mass," Coakley said in a statement, as reported by The Oklahoman. The 'Black Mass' that is scheduled for the Civic Center in September is a satanic inversion and distortion of the most sacred beliefs not only of Catholics, but of all Christians."  

"In a spirit of hope, I ask those who are allowing this event to reconsider whether this is an appropriate use of public space. We trust that community leaders — and, in particular, the board members of the Oklahoma City Civic Center — do not actually wish to enable or encourage such a flagrantly inflammatory event and can surely remedy this situation."

Contact OK City mayor Mick Cornett at mayor@okc.gov. Jim Brown, General Manager of the OK City Civic Center can be contacted at 405-297-2584.

If this is not challenged and allowed to take place in Oklahoma, similar occult events will spread to other areas.  Adam Daniels, sex offender, and member of the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, has stated: "I'm renting a small space one time a year to educate the public about my religion. This is protected by my First Amendment Right as a citizen of the United States, not a brainwashed sheep of the Catholic Empire." The Civic Center is owned by the city and funded by a foundation that includes a city government official and the head of a Catholic hospital on its board.


The event has been condemned by the Archbishop of Oklahoma City. (Fr. Z’s Blog.) described him as a high priest of a local satanic group. Daniels told The Oklahoman in a recent interview that a Black Mass contains similar themes to a Catholic Mass, however instead of worshipping God, participants worship Satan. and I will be presiding over this rite. Daniels stated that before each ritual he will lecture on the purpose and point of each ritual as it pertains to the Ahrimanic [Satanic] Faith. Daniels claims he is merely exercising his First Amendment Right as a citizen to educate the public about his “religion”. He emphatically denies being “a brainwashed sheep of the Catholic Empire.”
The Archbishop also expressed concern about the “dark powers” the event would invite into the community “and the spiritual danger that this poses to all who are involved in it, directly or indirectly.” Even though the black mass is being billed as entertainment, “this Satanic ritual is deadly serious,” he said. “It is a blasphemous and obscene inversion of the Catholic Mass. Using a consecrated Host obtained illicitly from a Catholic church and desecrating it in the vilest ways imaginable, the practitioners offer it in sacrifice to Satan.”

Asking Lucifer to Possess Him
The abridged Black Mass is taken from the Satanic Rituals by [Anton] LaVey. It will be followed by The Choke a local band. After that, Matthew Garman will have a Satanic (Ahrimanic) Exorcism done which purports to remove the Holy Spirit from him.  Note that he is asking for Lucifer, who mimics the Holy Spirit in the world to possess him.

An exorcist warns those who plan to attend!
An  anonymous, exorcist, told Aleteia last month that even those who attend out of curiosity are putting themselves in grave danger. I suspect that some people will go simply to be entertained. What they may not realize immediately is that simply by going, they will open themselves to the power of the demonic. The mere fact that this black mass in Oklahoma City will be public lends it a certain legitimacy. You cannot attend such an event—even if one does so merely out of curiosity, and not with any firm desire to worship Satan—without being adversely affected,” the priest said.

A Stolen Consecrated Host was obtained for this event
“I’m sick of hearing about this ‘Consecrated Host,’” Daniels told Aleteia. “As my understudy has told other Catholic Inquisitors, the Eucharist was mailed to us by a friend. That is all I’m going to say about how it was attained. My question is, why is a piece of bread that some man said some words over so sacred?”
Lucifer knows that Jesus is in the Consecrated Hosts.  So Satanist are inspired to steal hosts from the Catholic Church. They do not go after hosts in the protestant denominations because they know that the real presence is not contained within them. They want Jesus not a symbol.  

 Black Mass the Ultimate Sacrilege
The Fatima Message urged us to atone for Sacrileges against the Holy Eucharist

 Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended  and by the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

Since this Black Mass will occur in a public place it will be toned down from what they do at a private event because of  public decency laws. I cannot write what they do to the host when the black Mass is not toned down.  It is too horrible to even think about it. Knowing what takes place I am astounded at the patience of God that he allows such evils without manifesting his sovereign power and destroying them all. It is a mystery that God allows himself to be crucified again and again by Humans who he has allowed free will to choose to do so.

The  is the same Evil spirit with Stalin, Hitler, Nero, and all the other tyrants in History. they died but Lucifer passses from one man to the next. He is paving the  soil the way for the advent of the antichrist.  This is the same evil spirit that Is now with Isis and putting Christians to death. Including children. See: Iraq: What's the big deal?Here's the big deal: From the Hisrch Files Blog

See those three guns?  One of them shot this kid in the head shortly after this picture
This is te same evil spirit with al the evil movements in History. The horriblereality now is we see the killings it is not hidden from us like the gas chambers but Governments are doing nothing. The well-funded ISIS has taken the initiative to start killing the Christians.  This included the kids.
And not only are they killing the non-Muslim kids, but they're beheading them, too.  Isn't that nice?  Click for  more photos
  A slippery slope
What a slippery slope we have fallen down in society since the 1950’s,  the “Leave it to Beaver,” generation. Who could have imagined the things taking place today back then?  Ignorance and complacency are to blame to some extent but it is much deeper. Our sins personal and as a society have lulled us into a spiritual stupor.  I believe we are in that time spoken of in 2 Thesolonians 2:10-12 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

Letter from Paul S. Coakley, Archbishop of Oklahoma City
August 06, 2014 (Zenit.org) - Here is the text of an open letter released by Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City, regarding a black mass planned for September in the city.

August 4, 2014
Memorial of St. John Vianney

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
By now you are probably aware that a Satanic group has scheduled a so-called Black Mass for Sunday, September 21 at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City. 
Even though tickets are being sold for this event as if it were merely some sort of dark entertainment, this Satanic ritual is deadly serious.  It is a blasphemous and obscene inversion of the Catholic Mass.  Using a consecrated Host obtained illicitly from a Catholic church and desecrating it in the vilest ways imaginable, the practitioners offer it in sacrifice to Satan.  This terrible sacrilege is a deliberate attack on the Catholic Mass as well as the foundational beliefs of all Christians.  It mocks Our Lord Jesus Christ, whom we Catholics believe is truly present under the form of bread and wine in the Holy Eucharist when it has been consecrated by a validly ordained priest.
In spite of repeated requests, there has been no indication that the City intends to prevent this event from taking place.  I have raised my concerns with city officials and pointed out how deeply offensive this proposed sacrilegious act is to Christians and especially to the more than 250,000 Catholics who live in Oklahoma.  I am certainly concerned about the misuse of a publicly supported facility for an event which has no other purpose than mocking the Catholic faith.  I am especially concerned about the dark powers that this Satanic worship invites into our community and the spiritual danger that this poses to all who are involved in it, directly or indirectly.  Since it seems this event will not be cancelled, I am calling on all Catholics of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to counteract this challenge to faith and decency through prayer and penance.
Specifically, I am asking that the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel be included at the conclusion of every Mass, beginning on the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord (August 6) and continuing through the Feast of the Archangels (September 29).  I invite all Catholics to pray daily for divine protection through the intercession of this heavenly patron who once defeated Lucifer in his rebellion against the Almighty and who stands ready to assist us in this hour of need.
Secondly, I am asking that each parish conduct a Eucharistic Holy Hour with Benediction to honor Christ’s Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist, between the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15) and September 21, to avert this proposed sacrilege.
Finally, I invite all Catholics, Christians and people of good will to join me in prayer for a Holy Hour, outdoor Eucharistic Procession and Benediction at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Oklahoma City at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 21, the day of the proposed sacrilege.  We will pray to avert this sacrilege and publicly manifest our faith in the Lord and our loving gratitude for the gift of the Holy Eucharist, the source and summit of our lives. 
A printable version of the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese on the archdiocesan website (www.archokc.org).  If you have not yet done so, I urge you to contact the Office of the Mayor, the Honorable Mick Cornett, to express your outrage over this offensive and blasphemous sacrilege and this misuse of a tax-supported public space.
Commending our efforts to the Lord through the loving intercession of Mary, the Mother of God, I am
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Paul S. Coakley Archbishop of Oklahoma City

Asks for 9 days Fast from Meat

You may be reading this too late to join the fast called for by the Bishops in Oklahoma.  You may want to consider joining them for any 9 day period before the event scheduled for September 21. Really this is so crucial a spiritual battle with eternal life and death consequences. if this succeeds here we will soon be fighting this same type of event in our own cities. If it is put down they will also try somewhere else until it takes place. Nowhere is exempt. Let us not be complacent and say it is there battle it is all of ours.   In the black Mass the spirit of evil is desecrating Our Lord but it will also soon lead to what is happening in Iraq today the killing of Christians. It is the same evil spirit in both battles. The same spirit with Hitler. It is because Christians have accepted the lie.  Iraq: What's the big deal? From the Hirsh File Blog

“If you want to be relevant, you will take up this fast. If you fall into complacency like everyone else, you can expect the number of demonic possessions to start rising in Oklahoma. Tell everyone you know. You, the laity—and even you Protestants—have been waiting for something you can do to directly counter this evil that is spreading in our land. This is what you do. This period of fasting and prayer is our direct assault. Let us take up a nine day fast from meat, and pray the rosary and prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel every day that you abstain. Take note of Assumption Day, and if you are in the area, attend Holy Family Cathedral on the 15th of August”  From the Hirsch Files Blog  

A letter from Bishop Slattery Bishop of Tulsa

My Dear People:

As has been widely reported, a Satanic Black Mass has been scheduled for September 21 in Oklahoma City’s Civic Center. As a part of Satanic worship, a Black Mass attempts to invert the action and meaning of the Eucharist in order to mock Christ’s sacrifice and worship Satan through an orgiastic ritual of pain and perversion. It blasphemes everything which we hold as sacred and redemptive; and the spiritual dangers it poses ought not be dismissed. Since the Civic Center has not responded positively to the pleas of the Archbishop of Oklahoma City not to host this event in a tax-payer supported public venue, I am asking the faithful Catholics in the Diocese of Tulsa to fight this blasphemy through prayer and fasting:

Please keep the nine days prior to the Feast of the Assumption as an extraordinary period of prayer and penance. I am asking every Catholic to abstain from all meat and meat products from August 6 through the 14th. I am also asking that you consecrate your hunger with a daily recitation of a decade of the rosary and the familiar Prayer to Saint Michael.  Printed copies of these prayers are available in the bulletin and at the entrances of the church. Be strong and encourage your friends to also be strong.

On Assumption Day, August 15th, we will ask Our Lady on her Feast, to intercede for us and protect us. On that day I in the Cathedral, and every priest in his own parish, will pray a special prayer written by Pope Leo XIII for the defense of the Church against the attack of the Enemy and his apostate angels.

Should these prayers and this period of fasting not effect the cancellation of this event, then I will ask every priest in the Diocese to conduct a Eucharistic Holy Hour on September 21 at the same time (7:00 p.m.) as this profanity is being celebrated in Oklahoma City. Wherever possible, I ask that Eucharistic Processions - especially outdoor processions - be arranged as part of these holy hours. Let us give a public witness to our faith in the Eucharist which is being so profoundly mocked and ridiculed by this event.

From the snares of the devil, deliver us, O Lord!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Rev. Edward J. Slattery
Bishop of Tulsa

Will the Mission of the Prophet Elijah culminate in the Apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima?

Subjects in this post:

1. Will the Mission of the Prophet Elijah culminate in the Apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima?
2. Another Hidden Meaning for the Brown Scapular?
3. Triumph of Mary or the Annihilation of Nations its up to us!
4. Fatima gives the specific formula “to save mankind from self-destruction.” Pope John Paul II
5. Through the Rosary and scapular Our Lady will prepare us for the Second Advent of Christ!
6. Clouds are symbols for the Holy Spirit. The clouds signifying the first second Advents of Mary.
7. Important events have taken place with God on or within the clouds.

Conclusion: It appears that the mystery of Lourdes and Fatima, in the providence of God, have a symbolic connection with the Prophet Elijah in his decisive battle with the prophets of Baal!

Our Lady of Mt Carmel  and the Prophet Elijah  at Fatima and Lourdes

God choose in his providence that the Queen of Heaven and Earth was to make her last apparition at Lourdes on the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 16th 1858, and in the last public vision of Fatima, Our Lady also appeared as Our Lady of Mt Carmel on October 13, 1917.  At Fatima she  was holding the Rosary and the scapular out to a subdued and frightened crowd as they beheld  the Miracle of the Sun. Many in the crowd were terrified because they thought during the time it was the end of the world.

  The Prophet Elijah
Founder of the Carmelites

Prophet Elijah Founder of the Carmelites Statue by Agostino Cornacchini
           Located in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican  Feast Day - July 20

Lourdes and Fatima belong to a long line of Approved Marian Apparitions leading back to the founding of the Carmelite Order on Mt Carmel by the Prophet Elijah. Here  Elijah battled 450 priests of Baal in a public spiritual contest which led to their defeat and ruin. He challenged the people to stop hobbling first on one foot and then on the other but to choose who is God in Israel Yahweh or Baal. According to the story, which can be found in the First Book of Kings, chapter 18, Elijah’s sacrifice was consumed by fire from heaven and proved to the people that Yahweh was the true God. Is it possible God is sending his Mother the Queen of prophets to help us defeat the prophets of Baal resurrected in our own time.               

In the book of Malachi Elijah's return is prophesied to take place "before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord." He is  a forerunner in both advents of the Messiah.

It seems that  Heaven has confirmed Our Lady at Fatima in the same mission of the prophet Elijah. Our Lady at Fatima appearing  in her Carmelite habit with a similar fire from Heaven during the miracle of the sun. The stupendous Fatima Miracle is the Greatest Supernatural Event of the 20th Century and does not belong to faith or science it is an Historical Event! 

The Miracle of the Sun authenticated Fatima as supernatural in origin and also is a prefigurement or warning of a future catastrophe if the simple requests made at Fatima by our Lady are not heeded. 

See: Fulfilling the requests of Our Lady at Fatima the means given by God to obtain the final Victory of Good Over Evil.                                              
Surely the day is coming as fire....  
Picture Depicts the Prophet Elijah as
Fire From Heaven Consumes the Sacrifice
James Tissot (1836-1902 French)
...in a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and that day that is coming will set them on fire," says the LORD Almighty. 2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. 3 Then you will trample down the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I do these things," says the LORD Almighty. 4 "Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel. 5 "See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. Malachi 4:1-5

The Cloud that Prefigured
the First Advent of Our Lady

Elijah ascended Mount Carmel to pray to God for the salvation of the Israel which was suffering a terrible drought at that time. Elijah "Casting himself down upon the earth he put his face between his knees." 1 Kings 18:42. He sent his servant seven times higher up the mountaintop to look for rain. Elijah, never wavered in his confidence, and received the good news on the seventh try. Elijah saw the cloud as a symbol of the Virgin who would become the mother of the Messiah. I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel. Genesis 3:15

"Behold a little cloud arose
out of the sea like a man's foot."
1 Kings 18:44
View of the north Etzba Ridge on Mount Carmel. 
Note a little cloud on top right portion of photo 

Soon thereafter, torrential rains fell upon the parched land and the people of Israel were saved. Later an austere community of hermits followed Elijah and prayed in expectation of the advent of a Virgin-Mother who would bring salvation to mankind. They also saw the cloud as a symbol of the Virgin who would become the mother of the Messiah and made it their spiritual mission to pray for the advent of the Virgin.

In previous posts concerning Our Lady of Guadalupe we began to dialogue on how Heaven speaks to us in signs and symbols in the various Marian apparitions. More often these signs and symbols are heard louder than the spoken words in the apparitions. 
See: From Guadalupe to Fatima A Prophetic Mystery

No words Were  Heard During
The Apparitions of Knock
Yet Volumes Were Written on the Event


For example in the Apparition of Our Lady of Knock, in Ireland. Our Lady was seen with St. Joseph among a choir of Angels adoring Our Lord during the offering of the Holy Mass by St. John the Apostle. No word was ever spoken but volumes can and have been written on the figures and events surrounding the apparitions. Most authentic apparitions are not wordy but direct and to the point. Men have free will to choose to believe or not. Heaven does not usually say the same message innumerable times in different ways creating muddled, waters. Clarity of words direct and to the point is a good sign that God is behind an apparition. Later as men sit back to reflect and meditate deeper hidden meanings can be discovered in the manifestations and applied to particular periods in the providence of God.

It appears that the mystery of Lourdes and Fatima, in the providence of God, have a symbolic connection with the Prophet Elijah in his decisive battle with the prophets of Baal!

 Clouds are Symbols of 
The Holy Spirit

The symbolic uses of clouds in scripture are many; they are often used as a symbol of the Holy Spirit because clouds provide life-giving water to a parched earth and thisrtiing humanity awaiting the waters of baptism. In the Old Testament, God's presence is made manifest and His glory shown forth in a cloud. God often leads his people with a cloud or appears to them in a cloud. (Exodus 16:10) The image of a cloud is often combined with the image of light to symbolize the God who is hidden and mysterious but also revealing and luminous.

 At  Lourdes  

The last apparition of Lourdes occurred on the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, July 16, 1858. From this we may conclude that Heaven wished to bring Lourdes into the same mystery of Mt. Carmel and the prophet Elijah who prayed for the Advent of the Immaculate Virgin who would bear the Messiah.  Here at Lourdes, Our Lady called herself the Immaculate Conception, confirming the dogma of the Immaculate Conception by Pope Pius IX in his constitution Ineffabilis Deus December 8, 1854.  The woman foretold in the book of Genesis; who would crush the head of the serpent deceiver of mankind.

Important Events
Have Occurred with God
On or Within Clouds

The apparitions at Lourdes, symbolic for the cleansing waters of baptism and often take place in foggy damp weather. The clouds descend on the mountain surrounding the cave and Bernadette sometimes seemed to enter the cloud in order to converse with Mary. Similar to Moses who entered the meeting tent after the cloud descended upon it and on Mt. Horeb entered the cloud and received the 10 Commandments.

     At  Fatima     

The identification with the Mystery of Mt. Carmel is even more apparent. Mary came transported upon a cloud from the east similar to the the cloud rising from the ocean that Elijah saw that eventually inundated the earth with life giving rain ending a severe draught. Could this, along with other mysteries still hidden within the drama of Fatima, Signify a Second Advent with Mary?  Fatima seems to announce the Second Advent Mary as seen in the 12th chapter of the book of Revelation: The woman clothed with the sun the moon under her feet, and who with the help of God, prepares the church to meet Christ in his second advent his glorious second coming.

Through these (Rosary & Scapular)
Our Lady Will Prepare the World
For the Second Advent of Christ

The Brown Scapular was Our Lady’s last loving appeal to souls to wear as a sign of Consecration to Her Immaculate Heart and is endowed with many privileges from the church including the Sabbatine Privilege. Lucia of Fatima said that "Our Lady never looked as beautiful as when she appeared at Fatima during the Miracle of the Sun in Her Carmelite Habit and the very fact that she was holding the Brown Scapular tells us that she wants us to take it and USE IT!”  Sr. Lucia said: "OUR LADY WANTS EVERYONE TO WEAR THE BROWN SCAPULAR: IT IS THE SIGN OF CONSECRATION TO HER IMMACULATE HEART!!"

The devils revealed to Francis of Yepes, the brother of St. John of the Cross that three things especially tormented them The first is the NAME OF JESUS; the second, the NAME OF MARY; and third, THE BROWN SCAPULAR OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL. "Take off that habit," they cried to him, "which snatches too many souls from us. All those clothed in it die piously and escape us." God will perform great wonders for his church when he ushers in the Triumph of Mary through the devout wearing of the Brown Scapular. 

    St. Dominic’s Prophecy  

 on the Rosary and the Scapular,  

of the Blessed Virgin Mary--AD 1208




Another Hidden Mission for
the Brown Scapular?

The Brown Scapular  may also have a similiar symbolic mission as the blood over the doors of the Jews during the Passover. Our Lady held out the scapular to the crowd during the Miracle of the sun which foreshadowed a purification and a need for protection. This is offered to all who are consecrated to her and place themselves under her mantle of protection. When the church passes through the period of purification leading to the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, the scapular will identify us in this future battle as Children of Mary, under her mantle of protection. It will protect us from the destroying angels of the future Apocalypse and their various manifestations during the prolonged period of trial. We must be marked as a child of Mary wearing her brown scapular and fulfilling the Simple requests of Fatima to arrive at the Triumph of Mary’s Immaculate Heart. It does not mean we will not suffer! Just the contrary, we are called to Imitate the Life of Christ in this conflict with the church who also must walk the steps of her founder. It means that we will have the strength  as our Lord did from the Father to accomplish God's will for each of our lives, with Mary at our side as she walked beside the Lord during his Passion and Death.

 Annihilation of Nations?

The means given to us by God in obtaining the final triumph of Mary "The Woman Clothed in the Sun" can be gleaned from meditation on the events of Fatima along with the other Marian Apparitions APPROVED BY THE CHURCH in the light of the Fatima Message.

The urgency of our response can be seen by the fact that Pope John Paul II decided to  make the secret known in June 2000, with the comment that: “AS WE APPROACH THE NEW MILLENNIUM IT SEEMS THAT THE WORDS OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA ARE NEARING THEIR FULFILLMENT.”

Later the Vatican document explaining the Third Secret of Fatima clarifies that: “The Angel with the flaming sword” recalls similar images in the Book of Revelation. Images that represent the threat of judgment over the world. Today the prospect that the world might be reduced to ashes by a sea of fire is no longer pure fantasy. Man, himself, with his inventions, has forged the flaming sword.”

“Before releasing this last secret of Fatima, Pope John Paul II asked Sister Lucia for her interpretation. She replied that the visions (of the Angel of Justice, the mountain of corpses, the ruined city, etc.) referred to the part of Our Lady’s message, which ended with the words: “SEVERAL NATIONS WILL BE ANNIHILATED.” She added: “If we have not yet seen the complete fulfillment of the final part of this prophecy, we are going towards it little by little with great strides.”

Lucia’s comments seemed to indicate that the world is almost inexorably proceeding to self-destruction. The Pope also appeared to share this view in his Fatima letter of October 13, 1977, in which His Holiness said, the greatness of Fatima is that it gives the specific formula “to save mankind from self-destruction.”

Through the centuries Our Lady of Mount Carmel kept a constant watch over her children, ever solicitous to intercede for them and lead them to Her Divine Son. Amidst the sea of chaos, confusion and impiety raging in the world today, may Our Lady of Mount Carmel grant us strength and fortitude so we may all remain faithful to Her Son and His Holy Church.
