A Book on Apparitions of the Virgin Mary
by The M+G+R Foundation
The Crisis of Faith
Since the mid sixties there is a continual and clear reference in all Marian
Apparitions to the apocalyptic nature of the times we are living in, and this,
in truth, is the aspect of the Marian Messages which disconcerts and even
scandalizes many. But why should this surprise us ? Are there not many signs
which perhaps indicate that we are indeed living in such times ?
This writer submits for all to reflect on some significant words which His
Holiness, Pope Paul VI spoke in 1977, one year before his death, and which are
recorded in the book, "The Secret Paul VI", by Jean Guitton, pages 152 and 153
and Reference (7), p. ix.
"There is a great uneasiness, at this time, in the world and in the Church,
and that which is in question is the faith. It so happens now that I repeat to
myself the obscure phrase of Jesus in the Gospel of St. Luke: 'When the Son of
Man returns, will He still find faith on the earth?' It so happens that there
are books coming out in which the faith is in retreat on some important
points, that the episcopates are remaining silent and these books are not
looked upon as strange. This, to me, is strange. I sometimes read the Gospel
passage of the end times and I attest that, at this time, some signs of this
end are emerging."
"Are we close to the end ? This we will never know. We must always hold
ourselves in readiness, but everything could last a very long time yet."
"What strikes me, when I think of the Catholic world, is that within
Catholicism, there seems sometimes to predominate a non-Catholic way of
thinking, and it can happen that this non- Catholic thought within
Catholicism, will tomorrow become the stronger. But it will never represent
the thought of the Church. It is necessary that a small flock subsist, no
matter how small it might be". Pope Paul VI - 1977
So why should we be scandalized if Mary, Mother of the Word Incarnate, is
intervening today, in a very strong way, to help Her children back to God
