Our Lady of Fatima, Mother of Sorrows in her face we see Our Lady of the Chastisement! "Let them offend Our Lord no more for he is already much offended!"

 “ Gazing on the countenance of Our Lady of Fatima, we see     Our Lady of the Chastisement. Her maternal gaze looks down with a great mercy, but also a profound sadness, on a suffering humanity, an agonizing mankind" - Marian Horvart,Phd 

Let Us Meditate on approved Marian Apparitions
in the light given to us through Fatima! 

Jesus told his apostles that he had many things to tell them yet but they could not bear it now. When he would send the spirit of truth the Spirit would enlighten them and call to their minds all that he had taught them while he was with them.  A good example of how God has taught the church over time can be seen in the lives of two great Marian saints who promoted Total Consecration to her.  SAINT MAXIMILIAN KOLBE (1894-1941) and ST. Louis-Marie Grignion de MONTFORT (1673-1716).  The later was given a much deeper insight into the relationship of Our Lady with the Blessed Trinity than his predecessor, St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort, who was the first to advocate total consecration to her. The teaching of both disciples of our Lady under went scrutiny by church authorities of their time.  The sanctity of their lives gave witness to their words. Having said that the church would not have accepted what St Maxilmillian taught in the early 1900s during the time of St. Louis de Montfort early 1700s. The light of heaven is so intense we must be spoon feed by the Holy Spirit. Even now the teachings of St Maxilmillian on Our Lady’s spousal relationship with the Holy Spirit is so sublime the light blinds us. With all of this in mind let us consider the following quotations from an article by -Marian T. Horvat, Ph.D  

Our Lady of Good Success and
Our Lady of Fatima
Prophecies for our Day

Marian Horvart writes: “It seems to me that gazing on the countenance of Our Lady of Fatima, we see Our Lady of the Chastisement. Her maternal gaze looks down with a great mercy, but also a profound sadness, on a suffering humanity, an agonizing mankind. Lucia recounts that by the 3rd apparition, Our Lady had begun to reveal the sadness in her soul. In the last apparition, Lucia recounted, with an even sadder expression, She said, 'Let them offend Our Lord no more, for He is already much offended.' In the face, of Our Lady of Fatima.

 Fatima we see Our Lady as the

Prophet of the Chastisement

 A prophet is a person with a message for the future, an intercessor with Heaven who begs man's cooperation with grace. When God sent Prophets in the Old Testament it was to remind men to come back to the truth. In the 20th century Our Lord has sent His Mother, the Queen of Prophets: "Go to earth and destroy heresies." The Fathers of the Church have written Our Lady is the hammer of heresies. If you study message of Our Lady of Fatima, you will find the call for conversion and prayer - especially the Rosary - but also many warnings against the heresies and errors of our times.

Fatima and Quito 300 Years apart:
 Messages Confirm Each Other

Our Lady at Quito in Ecuador under the title of Our Lady of Good success confirms these warnings of Fatima almost 300 years before in a very descriptive and open way to the humble Conceptionist sister Mother Marianana. 

Our Lady told her that in our lamentable times, heresies would abound, the corruption of manners and customs would be almost complete and the light of the Faith would be nearly extinguished. To atone for the many blasphemies and abuses and to hasten the day of the triumphant restoration, this 17th-century religious was asked to become an expiatory victim for our times. 

Thus, in a special way, the vocation of Mother Mariana links her to the crisis in the Church and society that few would deny that we are witnessing today. In 1582, when Mother Mariana was praying before the Blessed Sacrament, for the first time she was given to see the heresy, blasphemy and impurity that would inundate the world as punishment in the 20th century. Our Lady asked her: “My daughter, will you sacrifice yourself for the people of this time?” Mother Mariana replied, 'I am willing.' From the violence of the shock of previewing the horrors of our day, Mother Mariana fell dead. Historic and documented evidence record that this holy religious truly died in 1582 and resurrected. Before the divine tribunal, she was given the choice to remain in heaven or return to suffer in the world. Following the example of Our Lady, who left the glories of heaven to protect her children during those difficult first years of the fledgling Church, Mother Mariana chose to return to life to expiate for the great sins of our times.” Marian T. Horvat,Phd.

Let us end with another quote from the Servant of God Fr. John Hardon S.J.

To become worthy of the victory that Our Lady predicted, we need a supernatural confidence. We need to be entirely convinced of that victory-‘In the End My Immaculate Heart will Triumph.’"

Let us continue to hope for Her Victory!

A Call to Eucharistic Reparation: Fatima Begins and Ends with the Eucharist!

                     FATIMA  A  CALL TO 


Statues marking where the Angel appeared to Fatima children
 This is the core of the Fatima Message! Many Fatima scholars rightly state that Fatima begins and ends with the Eucharist. Beginning in 1916 with the Angel teaching us how to make reparation and ending with our Lady warning of the annihilation of nations and the Miracle of the sun which authenticated the message as supernatural but also foreshadowed a future calamity if we do not do as she requests.

On one of his visits to Fatima Pope John Paul II said: "The message of Fatima is more relevant and more urgent than when our Lady first appeared. The message is an anguish appeal of our Heavenly Mother, who sees us in great danger and who comes to offer her help and advice." Her message is also a prophecy, a clear indication of what was about to transpire in the 20th century, and what is still going to happen infallibly in the near future, depending on our response to Her requests.

We will not solve the problem of abortion a grave sin against the image of God in man (Imago Dei) and the other problems of our time until we stop the sacrileges against God himself in the Blessed Sacrament.
We are sometimes like Naaman the Syrian who was told to bathe seven times in the Jordon river by the prophet Elisha in order to be cured of Leprosy. He was upset that the prophet himself didn't bother to come down and speak to him directly or heal him in some better manner than telling him to bathe in a river that was rather dirty looking. He had high expectations of how his healing should take place. Are we not sometimes like poor Naaman? This plan from the mouths of three little shepherd children is too simple. We are looking for other greater signs or shows for God's help. Naaman humbled himself at the urging of his friends and was granted the cure he sought. Again we are often running around trying to do great things ourselves to obtain favor with God instead of doing what he asked us to do through 3 little children. It is too simple this Rosary and scapular. This consecration to our Lady's Immaculate Heart these 5 first Saturday's for reparation. Above all Eucharistic Reparation but not just reparation reform.  Also See:  Fulfilling the requests of our Lady at Fatima the Means given by God for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We are in need of new church regulations governing those who are privileged to handle the Blessed Sacrament!
Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament-Memorial May 13th

The Angel of Peace at Fatima warned us in 1916 of the many outrages, sacrileges and indifference's Jesus would endure in the Blessed Sacrament.  We will speak on this God willing in future posts. Let us unite with St Peter Julian Emyard, Apostle of the Eucharist and founder of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament. He was able to obtain a feast in honor of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament for his community that is celebrated on May 13th the very same date God in his providence choose to send his Mother to speak to us for the first time at Fatima.  Our Lord sent his Mother to us at Fatima with his requests for the Church to avert future trials for humanity. By so doing he has also spoke in the unfolding of his providence.

Fatima is all about the Eucharist! 
Let us start today to make amends to God for all the outrages committed against the most Blessed Sacrament. The consequences for humanity if we do nothing was fortold during the Miracle of the Sun when all who witnessed it thought it was the end of the world and they were about to die!
Benediction  on Sunday's at Fatima
"The Eucharist began at Bethlehem in Mary's arms. It was she who brought to humanity the Bread for which it was famishing, and which alone can nourish it. She it was who took care of that Bread for us. It was she who nourished the Lamb whose life-giving Flesh we feed upon,"- St. Peter Julian Eymard

It is through Mary, the Mother of the Eucharist that fallen humanity will  find its way back to God. God was pleased to come into the world the first time through this simple handmaid and he will also return triumphant at the end of time through her. Our Lady will lead the Church to a happy union with her Divine Spouse if we choose to obey her requests that come from God. Let us follow these requests at Fatima today tomorrow may be too late!

A Meditation for the Solemnity of Mary Mother of God--The Whole World Awaits Mary's Reply

The angel awaits an answer; 
it is time for him to return 
to God who sent him.

You have heard, O Virgin, that you will conceive and bear a son; you have heard that it will not be by man but by the Holy Spirit. The angel awaits an answer; it is time for him to return to God who sent him. We too are waiting, O Lady, for your word of compassion; the sentence of condemnation weighs heavily upon us.

The price of our salvation is offered to you. We shall be set free at once if you consent. In the eternal Word of God we all came to be, and behold, we die. In your brief response we are to be remade in order to be recalled to life.

Tearful Adam with his sorrowing
 family begs this of you,  

O loving Virgin,in their exile from Paradise. Abraham begs it, David begs it. All the other holy patriarchs, your ancestors, ask it of you, as they dwell in the country of the shadow of death. This is what the whole earth waits for, prostrate at your feet.

It is right in doing so, for on your word depends comfort for the wretched, ransom for the captive, freedom for the condemned, indeed, salvation for all the sons of Adam, the whole of your race.

Why do you delay,why are you afraid? 
Believe, give praise, 
and receive the eternal Word

Answer quickly, O Virgin. Reply in haste to the angel, or rather through the angel to the Lord. Answer with a word, receive the Word of God. Speak your own word, conceive the divine Word. Breathe a passing word, embrace the eternal Word.
Modest silence is pleasing, dutiful speech is necessary

Let humility be bold, let modesty be confident. This is no time for virginal simplicity to forget prudence. In this matter alone, O prudent Virgin, do not fear to be presumptuous.Though modest silence is pleasing, dutiful speech is now more necessary. 

Open your heart to faith, O blessed Virgin, your lips to praise, your womb to the Creator. See, the desired of all nations is at your door, knocking to enter. If he should pass by because of your delay, in sorrow you would begin to seek him afresh, the One whom your soul loves. Arise, hasten, open. Arise in faith, hasten in devotion, open in praise and thanksgiving.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord,  Be it done to me according to your word.

From a homily in Praise of the Virgin Mother by Saint Ambrose, bishop (Hom. 4:8-9: Opera omnia, Edit. Cirtere. 4[1966], 53-54.)

Let the Earth be opened and bud forth a Savior! The Christmas Novena

Let us all pray the 
Solemn Christmas Novena

Spend five  minutes in daily prayer and contemplation to better recognize the Christ Child and more fully receive His boundless blessings. Based on the seven Great O Antiphons

Let the Earth be opened and bud forth a Savior!
O that you would rend the heavens and come down, with the mountains quaking before you!

Benedictine monks arranged these antiphons with a definite purpose. If one starts with the last title and takes the first letter of each one — Emmanuel, Rex, Oriens, Clavis, Radix, Adonai, Sapientia — the Latin words ero cras are formed, meaning, “Tomorrow, I will come.” In these words, the Lord Jesus, for whose coming we prepare in Advent and to whom we address these seven Messianic titles, now speaks to us. 

The O Antiphons not only bring intensity to our Advent preparations, but they bring our preparations to a joyful conclusion. Each antiphon begins with “O” and include a different Scriptural image through the Old Testament, all imploring the Messiah to come. As Elsa Chaney in Twelve Days of Christmas states, “They seem to sum up all our Advent longing as they paint  with words the wretched condition of mankind and his need of a Savior.”

    May the God of peace sanctify us completely and may our spirits souls and bodies be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ!

    V:  The Lord is our Coming King,  
    R:   Let us hasten to adore Him.

    At Fatima Heaven makes number 13 a number for Hope!

    At Fatima Heaven Reclaims
    number 13 from pagan
    worship to sacred number!

    The earliest reference I found to thirteen being unlucky or evil is from the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi (circa 1780 B.C.E.), where the thirteenth law is omitted although some translations contain a thirteenth law. The number 13 was always associated with bad luck. With similar folkloric aspects of the number 13 noted in various cultures around the world. Most stemming from pagan worship. I tried to find out the reason why and discovered that numbers 13 and 21 were significant to witches and occult numerology for numerous reasons. This is not the purpose of this post to detail it here. One can also do a search and come up with a lot of pagan and occult material in reference to the number.

    However it is interesting to note that the fear of the number 13 is so prevalent it has been given its own name: Triskaidekaphobia (from Greek tris meaning "3," kai meaning "and," and deka meaning "10") fear of the number 13; it is a superstition and related to a specific fear of Friday the 13th.

    The history of the modern fear of the number 13 likely originated in France in the 1300’s and was spread all over the world by French immigrants, who heard of the events in Paris concerning the banishment, arresting and outlawing of all Knights Templar on Friday the 13th of October, in the year 1307.

    A three fold curse was given by the last grand knight, who was finally executed on Friday the 13th of March, 1314. As he died he cursed Pope Clemence V, the King of France, Philip IV, and the Prime Minister to the 13th generation. The Parisians thought that this prediction was also valid for them and therefore the fear for number 13 and Friday the 13th started to expand out over the world.

    Another interesting connection in the occult concerns the Tarot Card. The 13th Tarot card is the card of Death and is pictured as a skeleton (the symbol of death) with a scythe reaping down men. This image later became known as “The Grim Reaper” I also discovered that the lluminati has also adopted 13 as a sacred number. Other references have to do with numerology and would take up to much space to detail it here.

    I wish to briefly mention that over time as Christianity spread the knowledge of the black arts was thankfully forgotten but the fear of the number 13 stayed in man’s consciousness without them realizing why. Friday the 13th was considered an unlucky day because Friday was the day of the Lords death and there were thirteen participants at the Last Supper. Tradition states that Judas Iscariot the disciple, who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th to sit at the table.

    With the resurgence of pagan religions witchcraft and satanic rituals in our culture. Heaven is telling us that God will have the the final say. Our Lord promised Peter "On this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against her" It doesn't mean that there will not be an attempt they will but they will not prevail. He will turn the tables on Satan and his deceptive minions through the Woman Clothed in the Sun with the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of 12 stars.

    I believe this is why that God choose to send his Mother on the 13th day of each month at Fatima. This event in Divine Providence of the Fatim a Message delivers a Message of hope. Our Lady will conquer the entire pagan Goddess Worship the devil spewed out when he realized God was going to use a Woman to defeat him. How about it the number 13 for 1 God in 3 divine persons? God  will purify and reclaim number 13 as a sacred number through Our Lady of Fatima.

    Let us also remeber that the star on Our Lady of Fatima's dress was a symbol identifying Our Lady as Esther in the book of Esther. This also has a significant message for our time in reflecting on what God is speaking to us in Divine providence in light of this book in the bible. 

    It was on the 13th day of the 12th month that the Jews were to be destroyed and Queen Esther was instrumental in having the King rescind the verdict saving the Jews from annihilation. I believe Our Lady will do this for us today if we join our prayers and fastings. She will intervene with God to prevent our destruction. The gates of Hell will not prevail. 

    As if to seal this message the last Fatima visionary was called home on the 13th day of February.  It was not a coincidence the timing of the death of Lucia. This act of Divine providence is a Message from the finger of God writing on the wall  in the providential events. Are we listening? Can we comprhend the writing on the wall and act while there is still time? 

    "Pray the Rosary everyday to obtain peace for the world" Our Lady at Fatima

    Wear the brown Scapular as a sign of your consecration to her. 

    Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary. Never was it known that anyone imploring your help and sought your intercession was left unaided.
