"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.

Don't forget ...


The very first apparition at Fatima took place in the spring of 1915.

Lucia saw the figure of an angel who did not speak ... the following spring of 1916 the same phenomena repeated itself, perhaps in preparation for the apparitions which took place in 1917?  I noted that here.

Some thoughts to consider from Blessed Jacinta.

“Tell everybody that God grants graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary...” - Blessed Jacinta

"I saw the Holy Father in a very big house, kneeling by a table, with his head buried in his hands, and he was weeping. Outside the house, there were many people. Some of them were throwing stones, others were cursing him and using bad language. Poor Holy Father, we must pray very much for him." - Blessed Jacinta

"Look! Don’t you see many roads, paths and fields full of people crying of hunger, not having anything to eat?  And the Holy Father in a Church praying next to the Heart of Mary?" - Blessed Jacinta

I think we're there.  Before she died, Sr. Lucia said we were going towards the trials foretold "little by little."  Closer to the date of the beatifications she told the pope we were "going towards it with great strides."  Which is why I think we are there now.

Just a thought.

UPDATE:


“Prayer, particularly the prayer of the rosary, 
is (what) will deliver us from the claws of this demon, 
the demon of terrorism. And of course, it is working.” 


This morning, I read this:
A Nigerian bishop says that he has seen Christ in a vision and now knows that the rosary is the key to ridding the country of the Islamist terrorist organization Boko Haram. - Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme - Finish reading here.
Pray the rosary every day.

  1. Yes, I think so too....we are so inundated with seemingly apocalyptic & horror-ful events - to say nothing of ever more barbaric and pagan trends in our own little patch of the world....we may not be beheading, crucifying, drowning, starving, kidnapping, raping, torching, bombing et al (!)....but we are for sure seeing the 'diabolical disorientation" taking a very firm grasp of more and more people.

    1. I added a quote from a Nigerian Bishop on praying the rosary, which gives me hope.

    2. When events such as these keep repeating themselves I am always reminded of this most glorious promise:

      "In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph."

      That is what I do not wish to forget. ^^

      I really hope the kind Bishop had a vision of Christ. So many cry out to the Lord that He is bound by His holy name to reply.
