|"If my requests are not answered, there will be wars and rumors
of wars, entire nations will be destroyed, Russia will scatter her errors throughout the
world, thousands of the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer,
but in the end.....
IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH."
This is the promise Our
Blessed Mother made to us, Her children, at Fatima. This, Her promise of final triumph, is
our shining hope; it is the ray of light that penetrates the gathering clouds of darkness
hovering over the earth. For it is only by living in union with Mary's Immaculate Heart
that we can find sustenance and strength as the powers of Hell spread across the face of
the earth, luring men into the "peace and brotherhood" of the kingdom of the
We must not fall into desperation, as have so many others, at the sight of the New World
Order of tyrannical Socialism, or the terrors of militant Islam, whose bloody red crescent
is being carried triumphantly from nation to nation.
We must not lose faith, as have so many others, as we witness the widespread chaos and
confusion within the Church, as the false teachers of our times spread the cancers of
heresy and doubt in every quarter.
We must not give in to the alluring temptations of modern
materialism and the messianic humanism which appears to be so like Christianity, but is in
reality the one-world brotherhood of the Antichrist.
We must not fear death in
a nuclear cataclysm, for the Scriptures admonish us not to fear those who have power to
kill the body, but rather Him Who has power to destroy both soul and body in Hell.
We must not be deceived into believing that we can combat and overcome these diabolical
forces with mere human and physical weapons, for Satan only laughs at these.
Our hope against the encroaching tyranny of one-world government is not
to be found in political or economic panaceas; our hope against the modernist perversion
of the Church is not found in merely human endeavors and protest movements; our hope for
true peace is not to be found at the international bargaining tables of the politicians.
Rather, our hope, our trust, our
confidence must be in MARY--for it is to Her that God has entrusted the peace of the world
and triumph over the allied legions of Hell.
It is MARY who alone is our life, our sweetness, our hope, in
this vale of tears. It is through Her plan and no other that we can find truth and light
and peace in the midst of chaos and darkness.
"MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL BE
YOUR SOLE REFUGE". . . . . .
l. CONSECRATION: If ever there were an
age in which men needed to live lives of total consecration to Mary, it is our own. For
how can we possibly hope to withstand the spreading influence of Hell's myriad legions
except through total abandonment of ourselves to Mary's Immaculate Heart? It is to Mary
that God has given the power to crush the serpent's head and to triumph over Satan's
legions; unless we live in total union with Her, what hope is there for our perseverance?
The way of True Devotion must be our way, for it is the way that will surely lead us to
the Truth and Light of Our Divine Savior and keep us ever close to His Sacred Heart. Our
way must be; AD JESUM PER MARIAM.
2. PRAYER: All of our external efforts and
actions will surely fail if they do not spring from a deep interior life of prayer and
meditation. Especially must we be faithful to that most beautiful of all prayers--the holy
sacrifice of the Mass. (But we must be faithful to the solemn teachings of the Church and
participate only in those Masses which follow the norms solemnly decreed by Pope St. Pius
V and the holy Council of Trent. This must also be a vital consideration in our
Eucharistic adoration, lest we fall into idolatry and sacrilege). Secondly, we must make
daily use of the Rosary, as Our Lady requested at Fatima. The Rosary is indeed a powerful
"weapon" of grace and will be a great source of personal family strength if it
is said devoutly with meditation on the mysteries. The Rosary is much more powerful than
any political stratagem or nuclear weapon, for the only power that can overcome the
present widespread forces of evil is the power of GRACE. "Russia will be
converted" -- Our Lady's plan for victory over the new world order with its
tyrannical socialist police state is CONVERSION. And that conversion is wrought by the
graces obtained by our prayers united to Her intercession.
|3. PENANCE: Our personal
sanctification and that of our family and of others cannot be achieved without penance and
mortification. The path to Christ is the way of the Cross; there is no other path to
sanctity. And our very mission as Christians is to cooperate with the redeeming act of
Christ on the Cross and thus to become saints. Thus did Mary, who appeared at Fatima also
as our Mother of Sorrows, ask for penance and reparation for the conversion of sinners, to
save souls from Hell, and to sanctify ourselves. "UNLESS
YOU DO PENANCE, YOU SHALL LIKEWISE PERISH!"
|4. DAILY DUTY: "The penance I now demand and require
is the sacrifice of daily duty." Our Lord has entrusted to each of us a particular
vocation; by offering up the sacrifices involved in fulfillment of the daily duties of our
vocation, we sanctify ourselves and we obtain graces for the conversion of others. Our
daily duty includes the living of our Morning Offering
-- to live constantly (our family life, business life, social life, school life) -- all in
union with Jesus and Mary. Women must also heed Our Lady's pleas for modesty and families
must live a life centered in Jesus and Mary -- including Enthronement of the home to the
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, daily family Rosary;
thus may the triumphant reign of Christ our King and Mary our Immaculate Queen begin in
our homes and families!
AND KNOW OUR FAITH: An important,
and often neglected, part of our daily duty is to study and know our Catholic Faith that
we may better live and defend it. This vital responsibility is especially important in
times such as ours when the doctrines and truths of our holy Faith are being compromised
and perverted by the widespread influence of modernist priests and theologians. The
precious faith of our children must be safeguarded against the subtle heresies so
prevalent in modern "catechisms" and CCD classes. FATIMA YOUTH CELLS should be
formed in every neighborhood to teach the children true doctrine and true devotion to
Mary. Parents should assist (and insist) with the formation of ESPIRITU CELLS for
teenagers to safeguard their faith through prayer and study. And, in addition to personal
daily spiritual reading (an absolute must for spiritual progress), a very effective and
inspiring means of safeguarding your Catholic Faith is offered by the FATIMA CELL program of prayer, study, and apostolic
action. To form such a Cell or to join one is one of the surest means of learning our
Faith, learning the errors which destroy faith, and strengthening yourself to withstand
the onslaught of the many insidious forces of spiritual destruction now rampant in the
Church and in the world. It may well be that these little Cells of Mary's consecrated
souls will be those spoken of by St. Louis Mary de Montfort in these latter times -- those
souls who will remain true to the Faith by living their Total Consecration to Mary; those
souls who will preserve the Faith by coming together in small groups in their homes to
pray and to study the Faith; those souls who will be miraculously protected by Mary in the
midst of widespread heresy, apostasy, immorality and persecution. Do not delay -- the
times are urgent -- form your FATIMA CELL today! And keep your heart filled with the hope
of Our Lady's promise -- "IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH!"
