"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

The Pope said it again...

World War III
Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction…
The shadow of Cain hangs over us today in this cemetery. It is seen here. It is seen from 1914 right up to our own time. It is seen even in the present. - Pope Francis' homily at Redipuglia

It is at least the second time the Holy Father called the current global crises WWIII.

Here's a thought.

Since I was born, the United States has been involved in some sort of 'peace keeping' mission, advisory status - with troops stationed on foreign soil, and even engaged in all out war in one region or another around the globe.  Saying nothing of the Cold War and covert operations to defend American interests in foreign countries already engaged in revolution or civil war.

Providentially, on this date in 1917: 

Words of Our Lady of Fatima, alluding to that same war the Holy Father journeyed to Redipuglia in remembrance today:
Our Lady: Continue the Rosary, my children. Say it every day that the war may end. In October Our Lord will come, as well as Our Lady of Sorrows and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world.

God is pleased with your sacrifices, but He does not want you to wear the cords to bed. Keep them on during the day. 
Lucia: "I have the petitions of many for your help. Will you assist a little girl who is deaf and dumb?" 
Our Lady: She will improve within the year. 
Lucia: "And the conversions that some have asked to have brought about? The cures of the sick ones?"

Our Lady: Some I will cure, and some I will not. In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe. - Source

I have an idea for the Pope.

Perhaps the Holy Father could do something for October 13, the anniversary of the Miracle at Fatima - as a way of preparing for the 100th anniversary of the apparitions in 2017.

What if the Holy Father made the following request to all the Bishops of the world:

"I know brothers that the Consecration that Our Lady of Fatima asked for has been accomplished. 

Nevertheless, considering the precariousness of our times, let us join together on October 13, 2014 to renew that consecration, and let us do so exactly as Our Lady requested.  

Considering the dangerous situation in Ukraine, let us join together collegially and consecrate our beloved Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother.  Let us also, together with every diocese of the world, begin the devotion of the Five First Saturdays of reparation asking for peace throughout the world - in addition to a worldwide rosary crusade."

I wonder what would happen?

Editor's note: If any reader has contact with the Pope will you please give him my suggestion?  Monsignor Ganswein, if you're reading...  Tell him not to call me though - I don't like talking on the phone, and I rarely answer it - of course you already knew that.  Thanks!


  1. 'Duck and cover' might be a good strategy for the 100 year anniversary in 2017. In 1517 Luther nailed his 95 theses, the Freemasons formed their grand lodge in 1717 and the Bolsheviks emerged in 1917. God works in patterns for our benefit, and it seems like the major enemies of the Church have emerged in years ending in '17'. Many have read the Fatima apparitions--the greatest miracle since Biblical times--as a warning, similar to Noah (imageries of sun, water, the angel of chastisement and shaking of the heavens). Fr. Joseph de Sainte Marie and Fr. Regis Scanlon are reliable and persuasive on these points. Obviously Noah gave a 100 year warning and there was a chastisement in France (the Revolution) a hundred years after St. Margaret Mary asked the king to consecrate France to the Sacred Heart.

    Who knows what will happen in 2017, but I would watch the signs of the times.

    1. Don't tell Cardinal McCarrick that.

      Anyway - I thought of your timeline already. Esp. the French revolution part - 100 years after the request.

    2. I'll worry about t in 2117.

    3. Even though 2117 fits the pattern better it can't be right. My best End Times data comes from "Heaven is for Real", and little Colton tells his Dad at the end of the book that his Dad will battle demons during the actual Apocalypse. Dad ain't gonna live to 2117.

      Terry, I'm glad you're on the '2017' train, too. It's no fun to be paranoid alone, but it can be great fun in a group! As for McCarrick, I have two words for Michael Voris and all the other foaming Dolan haters: "Cardinal McCarrick". Put that in your teleprompter and smoke it. In fact, a Voris expose could turn into a drinking game. Every time the phrase "...and then he sat down next to me and put his hand on my knee" is used, take another shot.

  2. on a happier note... did you ever read the FBI file on Fulton Sheen? http://vault.fbi.gov/Bishop%20Fulton%20Sheen
