Prophecy: Great misfortune will come to France. The whole world will be upset... The cross will be insulted; blood will flow in the the streets... In 40 years...
World's Response: The medal was
struck promptly and distributed
widely by church authorities. Altar built later. No immediate worldwide
promotion of Marian devotions.

Complaint: The people and the clergy have turned to the ways of the world.

World's Response: A basilica was built and a statue consecrated but no worldwide promotion of Marian devotions.
December 8, 1854, the Roman
Catholic Church pronounced the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception of
Mary. This She confirmed in Lourdes in 1858, setting the basis for the
devotion to Her Immaculate Heart.
3. Lourdes - France 1858 - [Ref. (1)]
Complaint: Indirectly, by the requests made.

was built and, finally, large scale devotion to Our Lady begins to be

Prophecy: If Her requests are not heeded a worse war (than WW I) will take place (WW II), Russia will spread its errors in large scale and... if people do not mend their ways there will be a horrible, horrible punishment...
World's Response: A large
sanctuary was built, as requested, to
promote devotion to Our Lady, but, what She
specifically requested was
not done exactly as per the instructions and schedule from Heaven

7. Rosa Mystica - Italy 1947;1966/1976 - [Ref. (5) & (5A)]
Complaint: Loss of vocations. Religious and clergy living in mortal sin and betraying Jesus like Judas.
Request: Much penitence, prayer and expiation. Hour of Grace to be promulgated by Pope Pius XII. Cultivate Devotion to Her Immaculate Heart.
Prophecy: Our Lord is tired of so many offenses and sins against holy purity. He wants to send another punishment of the same magnitude as the Flood of Noah's time.
World's Response: No church-wide
support. No recognition of the Hour of Grace. Mostly ignored by the
hierarchy of the Church.
8. Garabandal - Spain 1961/1965 - [Ref. (6)]
Complaint: 1. The cup is (on 1961) already filling up. 2. Since the message of 1961 has not been heeded, now (1965), the cup is flowing over.
Request: Must make sacrifices & perform much penance. Make this message widely known. Amend your lives.
Prophecy: "You should turn the wrath of God away by your efforts. Ask for forgiveness and He will grant it." [Implied prophecy : "If you do not change your ways and ask for forgiveness you will have to contend with wrath of God.] There will be a Warning and a Miracle.
World's Response: The laity has
done much to promote the message
without official Church support. Individuals of the Church clergy have
not done much to promote the messages.
9. Akita - Japan 1973 - [Ref. (6A)]
Complaint: Many people in this world hurt the Lord. The action of the devil is going to infiltrate even the Church, to the extent that Cardinals will be opposing Cardinals, Bishops will be set against other Bishops.
Request: Say the Rosary [the correct translation is "Pray the Rosary"] every day. With the Rosary pray for the Pope, the Bishops and Priests. Pray continuously for the Pope, Bishops and Priests. I am seeking for souls to console Him.
Prophecy: "If people do not repent and do not improve, the Father will send a terrible punishment on the whole of humanity. This will be a more serious punishment than the Flood, worse than any there has ever been. A fire will fall from heaven and will annihilate a great part of humanity, the good with the evil, sparing neither priests nor the faithful. The survivors will find themselves in such desolation that they will envy the dead."
World's Response: There has been
limited promotion of this
message. Although it has the approval of
the Sacred Congregation for
the Doctrine of the Faith most people are not aware of it.
10. San Nicolás - Argentina 1983/1990 - [Ref. (7)]
Complaint: She quoted Ez 2:4-10. (We are hard headed and are not listening to messages of conversion).
Request: Listen to what the Lord expects from you through the Scriptures quoted. Go and preach everywhere. Build a large sanctuary here.
Prophecy: Many souls will be lost. [Our Lady is no longer acting to stop the chastisement because, as reflected in the two prophecies above, it is too late. Now it is a matter of praying for conversion to save souls and to reduce the severity of the chastisement.]
World's Response: The local
hierarchy approved the execution of
everything asked for by the Virgin Mary and, at the time of this
writing, is proceeding with the building of the sanctuary.
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now known as
Francis, never visited nor gave his support to these apparitions and
11. Medjugorje - Yugoslavia/Bosnia 1981/1993 - [Ref. (8)&(9)]
Complaint: The world has gone materialistic and is going to total perdition and ruin.
Request: Pray, fast, do penance and return to the Sacraments. Reconcile yourself with God and with one another. Hurry !
Prophecy: Great chastisement will come after a warning and a great miracle. "Hurry, hurry to convert, the time people have is short!" - She is exhorting us.
World's Response: The public response has been of supernatural proportions. At the time of this writing (1999), over 16 million have journeyed to the site. The Roman Catholic Church has not taken an active role in its promotion, yet it is making it easy for its dissemination on the merits of its initial central message: Pray, fast, do penance and return to the Sacraments. Reconcile yourself with God and with one another.
