"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.

Recalling Something Pope Benedict Said at Fatima ...

"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

Don't forget, one of the points mentioned in the secret - especially as it related to the third part of the secret, was the statement, 'the Holy Father will have much to suffer'.  Frequently, Jacinta mentioned the Holy Father in reference to the third part of the secret, and/or exclaiming 'Poor Holy Father!'  The other sign - or significant part of the secret was, 'the good will be martyred.'  If Jacinta's voice could be heard today, perhaps she would exclaim to all of us: "Look!  Don't you see?  It is happening now!"

What Pope Benedict said when he visited ...

The greatest persecution of the church doesn’t come from enemies on the outside ...
"In terms of what we today can discover in this Our Lady's message, attacks against the pope or the church don’t come just from outside the church. The suffering of the church also comes from within the church, because sin exists in the church. This too has always been known, but today we see it in a really terrifying way. The greatest persecution of the church doesn’t come from enemies on the outside, but is born in sin within the church. The church thus has a deep need to re-learn penance, to accept purification, to learn on one hand forgiveness but also the necessity of justice. Forgiveness does not exclude justice. We have to re-learn the essentials: conversion, prayer, penance, and the theological virtues. That’s how we respond, and we can be realistic in expecting that evil will always launch attacks from within and from outside, but the forces of good are also always present, and finally the Lord is stronger than evil. The Madonna for us is the visible maternal guarantee that the will of God is always the last word in history." - NCR

Stop attacking the Holy Father.  Our Lady only asked us to pray for him, not attack, mock and persecute him.  Quit sigging others on him.


  1. The current Holy Father does not please our Lady by his constant sowing of confusion in the minds of the faithful. We must not mock the Holy Father, as you say, but at the same time we have a responsibility to question much of what he says. To be silent in the face of false teaching and confusion is a grave sin.

  2. I am glad that some people know the mind of our Lady...what a wonderful gift!

    Why don't they just release the Third Warning??? I don't get it, just release it already....(another reason I am not convinced with Fatima..though I don't think the kids were lying..but...)

  3. "Stop attacking the Holy Father. Our Lady only asked us to pray for him, not attack, mock and persecute him. Quit sigging others on him."

    I could not agree more. Thanks for the reminder, Terry. Happy feast day in honor of our Lady of Fatima!
