If a Heavenly Manifestation was
declared 'Worthy of Belief' by The Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic
Church, and enjoys its endorsement through word and action, why was it
God has tried to help us, through
Heavenly Manifestations, by showing us many avenues through which we
can make reparation for our many sins, thus establishing the channels
to rekindle our faith and loyalty to Him. Tragically, the Heavenly
Manifestations were turned into Profit Centers and powerful means to
manipulate the faithful who, lacking apt shepherds, continued to drift
away from the real Living God and into almost annihilation.
As a last resort God placed His
Holiness John Paul II in the Throne of Peter. Let us pray for him
incessantly. He needs the help of the Christian world to expose and
right all the wrongs committed in the Name of God and in the pursuit of
personal, and very material, agendas.
Definitions of Terms Used
Controlling Members of the
Church: Those who, by behind-the-scenes manipulation,
interfere with the guidance imparted to the Church by the Holy Spirit
through its legitimate authority. At times the Popes themselves have
been the victims of such manipulations.
Worthy of Belief: A
Supernatural Occurrence, such as an Apparition and its key message,
which by the positive or inferred action of the Church, is deemed
theologically sound and spiritually healthy for the faithful at large.
Usually said action by the Church promotes the Supernatural Occurrence
among the faithful. Examples: La Salette, Lourdes, Fatima, etc.
What Took Place? Why Was It Not
To determine what has taken place,
what was not done on time and assign responsibility, we shall review
the Chronology of the much debated Apparitions of Our Lady of the
Rosary at Fatima in Portugal .
The 'Fatima Establishment', that is,
those who have apparent direct control over the Sanctuary at Fatima,
Revs. Luciano Guerra, Luis Kondor and Luciano Cristino, have publicly
reported the following Chronology(1) of events. [Please Note:
Said publication carries the Imprimatur of the then Bishop of
Leiria-Fatima - D. Alberto Cosme Almaral.]
July 13, 1917: The Virgin Mary
informed Lucia (the main visionary) that She would come in the future
to ask for the fulfillment of two specific requests. Thus giving
advance notification of a future request [Devotion to Her Immaculate
Heart and the Consecration of Russia.] The visionaries were informed in
1917 that the fulfillment of these requests were key requirements for
world peace and stability.
December 10, 1925: God tells Lucia to
make public the request for the specific devotion to the Immaculate
Heart of Mary, given to her on July 13, 1917. [See above] [Please
Note: God had given the controlling hierarchy of the Church eight years
to discuss the Apparitions and future requests.]
February 15, 1926: God in an
apparition reminds Lucia of, and insists on obedience to, His requests.
June 13, 1929: The Virgin Mary
appeared again to Lucia to inform her that the time had come to
Consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart. [Please Note: God
had given the controlling hierarchy of the Church twelve years to
discuss the Apparitions and future requests before actually making the
Later (after June 13, 1929 but much
before March of 1938): The Virgin Mary informs Lucia that: The requests
were not fulfilled on time and that the consequence will be dire.
March 1938: Austria merges into Hitler
Nazi machinery. Technically World War II has commenced.
September 13, 1939: Finally, almost
fourteen years later [10-12-1925 ====> 13-9-1939], the responsible
local Roman Catholic authority [the Bishop of Leiria-Fatima] made
public one of the requests [Acts of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart
Commentaries on Chronology
(aaa) Over eight years after
the last Apparition, Lucia is instructed to publicize and promote the
special devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It was not done.
(bbb) Almost twelve years
after the last Apparition in Fatima, Our Lady of the Rosary reappears
to announce that "The moment has come... to make the consecration of
Russia...". It is not done within the time frame requested.
(ccc) The time frame allowed
by Heaven for the fulfillment of the previously announced and
subsequently requested consecration, lapses. Church authorities are
once again notified of this. It is too late now.
(ddd) With the merging of
Austria with Nazi Germany in 1938, the conditional prophecy of Our Lady
that a 'worse one (than World War I) will break out during the
Pontificate of Pius XI' begins to be fulfilled.
At this time [March 1938] neither
request had been fulfilled, yet, the clear requests from Heaven to act
were received almost thirteen and nine years before, respectively, and
the prophesied consequences are painfully becoming manifest.
CONCLUSIONS: Responsibilities and Consequence
An objective analysis of the situation
at hand seem to indicate that the Supernatural Occurrences of Fatima
were a reality: The death of over one hundred and fifty million people
serve as a mute and macabre testament to this fact.
Therefore, the Controlling Hierarchy
of the Church during the first half of this century, is
directly responsible for World War II and events thereafter. The
Controlling Hierarchy of the Church during the second half of this
century is directly responsible for its coverup. This has resulted
in a combined total of more than 150 million deaths and untold
suffering.This sub-total includes the deaths resulting from the
spread of errors by Russia, worldwide, as we had been forewarned.
Do Justice: Those in positions
of authority within the Roman Catholic Church are encouraged to
publicly admit that, by inaction, some elements within the Church were,
and continue to be, accessories to most of the misery unleashed upon
humanity in the last two-thirds of the 20th Century; and
Seek Mercy: The hierarchy of
the Church -world wide- must immediately launch Acts of Reparation to
the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary; perpetual
Adoration and Reparation to the Eucharistic Presence of Our Lord Jesus
Christ at all levels and an Evangelization program that should sweep
the world as it was originally intended by Our Lord. The severity
of the events which are rapidly unfolding may be still tempered by our
prayers and acts of reparation. Let us appeal to the Mercy of God.
As a theological exercise consider -
What if the above assessment is incorrect and the whole Fatima issue is
not true, as some members of the Hierarchy and Clergy ascertain, and as
the lack of timely response by the Church would indicate?
Then the Controlling Hierarchy of the
Church would instead be guilty of allowing the manipulation of millions
upon millions of the faithful of the world and deceitfully extracting
hundreds of millions of dollars through the Sanctuaries to Our Lady of
Fatima throughout the world as well as the Sanctuaries associated with
the Apparitions of in La Salette and Lourdes.
What would be the public reaction in
this alternative case?
In either scenario the Controlling
Hierarchy of the Church must allow His Holiness John Paul II to move
swiftly in appealing to the Mercy of God to prevent the howling mobs
from sacking the Churches and pillaging and plundering the properties
so highly treasured by said group. God has allowed such actions many
times over the History of Mankind - as we should learn from the
relatories found in the Book of Genesis to today.
