President Reagan and the Message of Fatima

While watching a documentary several years ago about the miraculous occurrences at Fatima that happened in 1917, I saw a media clip featuring President Ronald Reagan mentioning the three children seers specially chosen to impart an important message to the world given by the Mother of God.

However, not only was I stunned upon hearing such a reference, the clip went by so fast before I could figure out when and where the President of the United States would make an unexpected public reference to something of this spiritual magnitude, originating from Catholic mysticism no less. I've never heard it mentioned since, not even on Portuguese television all the years I've lived here so far, perhaps I should have done a thorough Google search!

In truth, I forgot about wanting to find out more about the clip as other projects took over, which is what happens when there are so many things you want to write about, that is until just recently an article about the President's speech found its way to me, and I thought I would share it on my blog along with my observations.

Let us go back to a time when the world was gripped in the icy yet fiery chill of the Cold War, a time when Russia was entirely Socialist, anti-religion, and its people lining up for hours to buy each and every basic commodity. Germany was split into Democratic and Communist areas by the Berlin Wall, Poland was under the thumb of Russian Communist rule, while on the opposite side of the spectrum the USA was held up as an example of everything an anti-Communist Superpower should aspire to be in the 'Free World', a country to where its citizens could live and practice their basic rights and freedoms. You know the ones, the rights of freedom of speech and an open press, and the liberty to openly practise your faith or creed without the fear of persecution.

Despite these freedoms, the dread of nuclear war was always brought up before terrified populations, including the democratically 'free' as well as the socialist-oppressed nations. America was paranoid that Russia might drop a nuclear weapon on them and came up with the 'Star Wars' missile defence program, while Russia was just as edgy knowing that America already had no qualms about dropping such a weapon during WW II, civilians be damned, just win whatever the cost.

Of course, I was still a kid at the time, not too interested in watching the boring grown-up news programs to understand all the rigmarole of the Cold War politics of the 1980s, but still tuned in enough to be freaked about the threat of nuclear oblivion thanks to all the 'high alert hype' in our culture.  Remember that movie when the computer thought that the nuclear arms race between the USA and Russia was nothing more than amusement and wanted to join in by hooking up to all the nuclear bombs? “Shall. We.Play.A.Game?”


Well, now that I've brought us back there for a moment to get an idea of the context, I can understand why President Reagan brought up a reference to the children of Fatima. In addition to the message they received that the First World War would end soon, (remember, the famous apparitions took place in 1917) they were destined to warn the world that if it did not repent and do penance, refused to pray, and continued offending the Almighty with grave sin, then God would be forced to send more drastic punishments to the earth in order to bring mankind back to its senses.

First through a second and worse war, which was a prediction of WWII that came true, then a second further warning that if Russia was not consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, it would spread its errors throughout the word, (i.e. Anti-religious Socialism and Communism), that many good people would be martyred, and several nations would be annihilated altogether. However, if people heeded Her message, there would be peace and these disasters would be averted.

The message obviously made an impression on President Reagan considering the crisis he was facing at the time and explains the nature of the speech he gave to the Portuguese nation that was entering into a fledgling age of democratic rule after many lengthy years of oppression under a brutal Socialist / Communist anti-clerical regime since the early 1900s, followed not long after by a lengthy dictatorship,which finally ended in the 1970s.

At last, I present the excerpt of Reagan's address of May 9, 1985 to the Portuguese National Assembly:

“ (…) In the United States and here in Portugal, in Europe and throughout the world, we have rediscovered the preciousness of freedom – its importance to the cause of peace and to restoring to humanity the dignity to which it is entitled.
This belief in human dignity suggests the final truth upon which democracy is based – a belief that human beings are not just another part of the material universe, not mere bundles of atoms. We believe instead in another dimension, a spiritual side to man; we find here a transcendent source for our claims to human freedom, our suggestion that inalienable rights come from One greater than ourselves.    No one has done more to remind the world of the truth of human dignity – as well as the truth that peace and justice begin with each of us – than the man who came to Portugal a few years ago after a terrible attempt on his life. (St. Pope John Paul II). He came here to Fatima, the site of your great religious shrine, to fulfil his special devotion to Mary, to plead for forgiveness and compassion among men, to pray for peace and the recognition of human dignity throughout the world. ...”

At this point I shall interrupt Mr. President and remind the reader about the assassination attempt made on St. Pope John Paul's life on May 13, 1981 in St. Peter's Square. The Pope was shot and wounded by Turkish gunman Mehmet Ali Ağca , was hit four times. Two bullets hit his lower intestines, one his right arm, the other his left hand, causing him to suffer severe blood loss. Ağca was apprehended immediately, and later sentenced to life in prison by an Italian court. The Pope later forgave Ağca for the assassination attempt and visited him while in prison. Ağca was pardoned by Italian president at the Pope's request and was deported to Turkey in June 2000. 

(Image:The assassination attempt on St. John Paul II.  Notice how close the shooter was.)

Ağca later confessed he met with three accomplices in Rome, one a fellow Turk and two Bulgarians, with operation being commanded by Zilo Vassilev, the Bulgarian military attaché in Italy. He said that he was assigned this mission by Turkish mafioso Bekir Çelenk in Bulgaria. A hypothesis was eventually pieced together from this 'Bulgarian Connection' that the assassination attempt was a plot conspired by the KGB who viewed the Pope as an enemy on account of his efforts to help liberate his native Poland from Communist Russian rule, but from the material I am reading, apparently no proof was discovered concerning this link between the KGB and the Bulgarians mentioned by Ağca, despite the KGB's known enmity towards the Pope, but the suspicion remains.

However, aside from the conspiracy twists and murder plots, the significance surrounding the date of the assassination attempt was not lost on the Pope nor faithful Catholics – May 13th –- the same date when the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima occurred, exactly 64 years previously. St. Pope John Paul was ardently devoted to Mary, and during his convalescent in hospital, requested all the documents on Fatima from the Vatican archives. He was convinced he had been saved by the Blessed Mother's intervention, and I along with many others agree. He visited Fatima in thanksgiving in 1983, donating a bullet that struck him, which was later incorporated into the crown of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in the Shrine, which you can see if you look carefully at the crown. He would visit the shrine again in 1991 and 2000.

 Of interest, one of the bullets missed his mesenteric artery and abdominal aorta by a few millimetres, had it been on target, the Pope would have died almost immediately. When visiting his would-be killer in prison on Dec. 27, 1983 the following exchange took place:

Ağca: “Why didn’t you die? I know that my aim was true and I know that the bullet was very powerful and mortal.” The Pope responded: “One hand fired the shot. Another (the hand of the Virgin Mary) guided it.

Forgive me for interrupting Mr. President, please continue...

“ “When I met Pope John Paul II a year ago in Alaska (1983), I thanked him for his life and his apostolate. And I dared to suggest that in the example of men like himself and in the prayers of simple people everywhere – simple people like the children of Fatima – there resides more power than in all the great armies and statesmen of the world. This is something the Portuguese can teach the world. For your nation's greatness like that of any nation is found in your people. It can be seen in their daily lives, in their communities and towns, and especially in those simple country churches that dot your countryside and speak of a faith that justifies all of humanity's claims to dignity, to freedom.   I would suggest to you that here is power, here is the final realization of life's meaning and history's purpose.

For the full text of the President Reagan's Address you can find it online by clicking here.

I cannot help but find amusing that before President Reagan began, the members of the Portuguese Communist Party stood up and walked out in protest. However, he treated the incident with grace remarking, “I'm sorry that some of the chairs on the left seem to be uncomfortable.”

(Yes, if you were wondering, there still is Communist Party here in Portugal, there's also a Socialist Party as well!)

However, it appears the threat of Communism engulfing the world is now remote despite the fact several nations remain staunchly under the red flag of the sickle and hammer, such as China and North Korea. In addition to President Reagan's efforts to spread world peace, we must not forget that St. Pope John Paul II fulfilled the request of Our Lady and dedicated Russia and the world to Her Immaculate Heart on the Feast of Her Assumption, March 25, 1984. 

(Image: St. Pope John Paul II making the 
Act of Consecration before the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.)

Isn't it amazing how fast Communist Russia fell and the Berlin Wall collapsed reuniting Germany after that? Today, you can see a large section of the Berlin Wall that was donated to the Shrine of Fatima as a testament to the promise of peace.

However, we are not out of the woods yet...

The Conditions given by Our Lady of Fatima have not been Fulfilled

Our Lady promised that the annihilation of the nations could be averted when the Consecration of Russia took place and usher in the age of Peace, and yes, as mentioned, the Communist error of Russia abated dramatically when this occurred, BUT, we must ask: has the earth seen the Great Period of Peace as promised? Haven't wars and international tensions escalated once more, not only in the Middle East but also with Russia as well and also with those who followed her 'errors' such as Communist North Korea and China?

We are not in that Age of Peace because not all the conditions for the real Reign of Peace to begin have been fulfilled.

Mankind was also warned to stop sinning and to turn back to God through prayer and penance, to pray and make sacrifices for the conversion of sinners, to pray the Rosary DAILY, to develop a deep devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and make reparation for the blasphemies committed against Her, especially through the Five First Saturday devotions that she herself asked for.

We cannot only do part of what was asked and leave out the rest.   

Can anyone honeslt say this last part of the message has been fulfilled? Has prayer, sacrifice, lessening of sin occured?  Has devotion to the daily Rosary spread? Has devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary grown?  Are people paying attention let alone completing the Five First Saturday Devotions?

Our Lady said ot Sr. Lucia that peace would come AS SOON AS A SUFFICIENT NUMBER of people were DOING WHAT SHE ASKED:

The Consecration of Russia can only be fully effective when the rest of the Message of Fatima is heeded, when people return to God seeking mercy and also have devotion Her Immaculate Heart (in union with the Sacred Heart of Her Son). Until then, we are in a trial period, similar to the time when the prophet Jonah gave God's warning to the city of Nineveh.

God threatened to destroy the city, and fearful of this dire punishment, the people did great penance and ceased their evil ways. God took pity on them and held off His punishments. However, the inhabitants once more grew lax when the promised punishment did not occur, forgetting it was their acts of penance and the willingness to sin no more that staved off the chastisement. Once, they fell back into their old ways, the city was destroyed as foretold, just not at the time they thought it would happen.

It is the same with the Message of Fatima.

It may be pointed out that the dreaded threat of WW II was fulfilled, that the 'great and worse war' that would be sent as a punishment has already occurred as predicted in Fatima, so isn't that already knocked of our worry lists?

No, because the annihilation of nations on account of the gravity of the sins that will be committed in the Latter Days has been predicted for centuries in the Catholic Church, and that particular punishment still looms over the earth.

Catholic prophecy does not stand alone in isolation: prophecies from approved mystics correspond with each other, and the threat of many nations being annihilated has been foretold for many years by mystics in addition to the Book of the Apocalypse and corresponds exactly with the Message of Fatima. 

We can have the Period of Peace without the time of punishments coming before it, or we must be doomed to suffer through them before the Peace can begin, according to Our Lady's words at Fatima that “in the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph”, which suggests that the choice exists between punishment or no punishment depending on mankind's conduct. It is up to mankind, beginning with each and everyone one of us, to change our lives and live according to God's precepts, or we shall face the dire consequences of the 'cleansing renewal' that must take place before He will establish the promised period of Peace.

However, knowing the weakness of man and considering the amount of times the same warnings Heaven continues sending through its messengers via mystics and saints over the centuries, it appears mankind will not change. To a point, prayer and the Consecration of Russia has staved off the time of reckoning so far, but if the morals of the world keep deteriorating as fast as they are these days, we will not escape what's coming.

The Warnings, What We Can Expect

Below is a summary of the warnings and signs we may expect before the punishments, and also in what manner the punishments will take place, and how God intends to establish the Reign of Peace through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I will do my best to be concise, but there are centuries of prophecies after all, so I can only select a small handful of mystics to mention.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15714842-we-are-warned (Note: the following is based on prophecies and personal revelations from Roman Catholic saints and mystics. If you wish to learn more about these mystics, I highly recommend the forth chapter beginning on page 516 of We Are Warned: The Prophecies of Marie-Julie Jahenny, just click the title to find out how to read it online for free or get your free PDF download. The pertinent mystics are all listed there, including excerpts of their prophecies concerning the latter times.)

Now, what to expect....

*) World War One and Two were sent as warnings, but went unheeded....

*) Warnings in signs of nature that the Annihilation is coming.

There are some many mystics that have said the great chastisements would be announced first by freakish events in nature surpassing anything mankind has seen in both frequency and ferocity. These events are earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, plagues, famines, heat waves, major crop failures, etc. Considering the instability of our planet at the moment in both climate and geological events, we may be this phase already. Pin it down to simple Global Warming if you like, but that too may be part of the warnings and chastisements.

*) 'Russia and her errors', Communism / Socialism, will still remain a threat to the world. Although Russia is no longer the 'Soviet Union', she did 'spread her errors' during those terrible former years, and now, Communism and Socialism are more widespread in the world than ever before.  Many of the 'Millenial' Generation in the USA today cannot see anything wrong with Socialism and now think it is a 'good idea'!

Stigmatist Marie-Julie Jahenny (1850-1941) warned there were be civil unrest, mostly through revolutions, especially a 'Red Revolution'.  Her warnings pertain to France, but what will happen in France will spread through Europe. A handful of conspirators will start a violent uprising in France which will lead to a short but bloody genocide and persecution of  Christians. Blood will flow in the streets. Churches will be closed, crosses torn down, holy statues toppled.  Europe will be engulfed in another war, but caused by revolutions. Paris will be destroyed and will never be rebuilt, a dire prediction also made by Father Nectou S.J., (d. 1777), a priest who was considered a saint and prophet by his brethren. He also predicted bloody revolutions in France, that would spread. The mystic Abbe Souffrant, the Cure of Maumusson (1828) also predicted the same thing. Blessed Elena Aiello (1895-1961) also warned of bloody wars, a horrific invasion that would be worse than the other two world wars, and that Russia will march upon all the nations of Europe, especially Italy, and will raise its flag over the dome of St. Peters in Rome if the world did not convert. Russia would battle America with its 'secret armies'. Marie-Julie Jahenny also declares France will be invaded again. Considering how America together with its NATO allies is rattling sabres along Russia's borders these days, trying to poke a fight by blaming the Russians for everything in the political spheres, we can expect anything to happen.

In addition to Russia rising...

*) Islam will once again become a major threat to Europe and the rest of the World

(Image: A Muslim protest rally.  Photo taken by Tal Cohen, featured in the World Tribune, Oct. 16, 2009)

Marie-Julie Jahenny warned that France 'would one day become Muslim and deny the divinity of Christ'. Another interesting prophecy of hers says that France will open its borders to all peoples and tounges, and Paris will be made miserable on account of it.  Hoards of aslyum seekers will come at a time of great hardship and joblessness, and tensions will be stoked.  A prophecy of the EU open border policy and the floods of illegal immigrants now boring across Europes borders? According to her and other mystics, Islam shall overshadow Catholicism and Christianity in France, and isn't that happening already with immigration and the rapidly escalating refugee crisis of Syria, Iraq, etc? Of note, a number of mystics from centuries past to today's times foretell a great leader would be raised up out of France who would drive out of Europe the Muslims who refused to convert, (I will return this topic of a 'great leader' later), but what is of interest is that Islam will become such a threat if the early mystics predict that war will have to be waged in order to secure the peace of Christian Europe.

 No, these prophecies of a new 'crusade' do not refer to the Siege of Vienna, or the Battle of Lepanto, which happened during the Renaissance period. Since Islam will be expelled by a great new leader from France, which hasn't happened yet, we can deduce the prophecies refer to a new age of militant Islam that will pose a threat to Europe. Considering the rise of terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and ISIS threatening war on the west, etc., a Catholic would have to be blind not to see the connection.

*) However Democracy is Not the Answer:

Sorry, President Reagan, but America's model of separation-between-church-and-state democracy is not the form of government that God will use to restore true Christian freedom to the earth. Better brace yourselves everyone, this next section will be a bitter pill to take.

(Image: concept art of the destruction of the Capitol of Washington DC. Artist?)

As far back as 1605, Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres of Quito Ecuador was given frightening prophecies of the 19th and 20th centuries that she declared would be a very corrupt time and that her prophecies would not begin to spread until then when the world would need them, which indeed happened. She was told that the world would become so impure that there would hardly be any virgin souls left on earth, the Church would be persecuted and a corrupt clergy would cause great scandals, and that at the end of the 19th century and for a large part of the 20th, various heresies will flourish on this earth, which will have become a 'free republic'.

In fact, the mystic Marie-Julie Jahenny declares democracy is a demonic form of government straight from Hell itself. From her own prophecies we find the following:

“The Blessed Virgin told me we have to pray much to deflect the evils that must fall upon France. It will unfortunately atone for two centuries of political and social system of atheism, two centuries of a non-Christian régime. Democracy is indeed the Luciferian régime par excellence. The sole régime of a divine origin never comes from below, but only from above. Without making a pun, let us say in its very name, recognizes that it is the devil that guides demo-cracy: the devil is the master.”

The mystic Maria Simma (1915-2004) who saw the souls of Purgatory said they informed her that democracy is “not a God-given right”.

Blessed Elena Aiello was told by Christ: The world has lowered itself in overflowing corruption. The governments of the people (i.e. democracies) have risen like demons incarnated, and, while they speak of peace they prepare for war with the most devastating implements to destroy peoples and nations.”

Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser (1613-1658) noted that at the time of the great corruption of the earth, there will be a century of great evil, and the world will be in a turmoil due to conspiracies to set up republics:

“During the fifth period (i.e. the century of evil) we saw only calamities and devastation, oppression of Catholics by tyrants and heretics, executions of kings and conspiracies to set up republics but by the hand of God almighty there occurs so wonderful a change during the sixth period that no one can humanly visualize it. The powerful Monarch, who is sent from God, will uproot every Republic. He will submit everything to this authority and he will show great zeal for the true church of Christ. The empire of the Mohamedans (Muslims) will be broken up and the monarch will reign in the east as well as in the west”.

I know, it may come as a shock to this modern generation that has been taught to believe that democracy is the most just form of government and the one most capable of securing our God-given freedoms, only to hear Heaven has vehemently declared otherwise. However, we should have known from the very words of the 'Our Father' ~ Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven' ~ that Heaven is not ruled by a democracy, therefore the earth should not be governed by democracies either.

*) The Problem with Modern Democracy

The destructive issue with modern democracy according to the saints and mystics is that, to put it in a nutshell, it is a form of government violently imposed by secret societies determined to undermine both the Church and the world order God intended to establish. Democracy is an attempt to replace them with a man-made vision of a global generic Deist, anti-Christian religion and ultimately a New World Order. 

Blessed Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824) was shown visions of Freemasons entering the Catholic Church and attempting to destroy it by corrupting it from within, establishing new rites and extravagant forms of worship which would supplant the ancient Traditions for a time, while Mother Marianna of Quito Ecuador was shown it was the 'secret sects' that would be the prime instigators of the corruption of the future centuries and would be the turn the world into a 'free republic'. Marie-Julie Jahenny hinted at the same thing, indicating why France would eventually be punished for becoming an atheistic secular state after the French Revolution, but was also warned by St. Michael the Archangel that he would eventually root out everything belonging to Freemasonry so that the Great Renewal could take place. Recall how Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser said the future republics that would corrupt the earth would be set up through conspiracies.

I know, this sounds far out. Call me a conspiracy nut that's lost it if you like, but after what I have personally seen in Portugal, I believe what the saints and mystics say. There is no smoke without fire.

On public Portuguese television I have seen documentaries aired lauding Portugal's Masonic past detailing how a renewed Carbonari movement, a secret political offshoot of the Carbonari in Italy, (which in turn was inspired by Adam Weipshaupt's (1748-1830) Illuminati that had a major part in fomenting the French Revolution), was responsible for instigating the regicide of King Carlos I of Portugal and his eldest son Prince Royal Luis Filipe in 1908. Prince Manuel rose to the throne, but the revolutionaries ensured his reign was short following a coup d'etat, bringing about the First Socialist Republic in Portugal, leading to a major persecution of the Church. Masonic history is no longer secret here, but as I have often heard, Freemasonry is no longer a secret society, but in Portugal, they don't mind hanging out their secrets in public either! Of course, it is also no big secret that the founding fathers of America were nearly all Freemasons and formed their new republic according to Masonic and Illuminati Deistic principals.

As much as I would like to delve more into depth of why Heaven frowns on Freemasonry and similar secret sects, and why there is such enmity between the Church and Freemasonry, it would stray well beyond the scope of this blog, which is quite lengthy already.

However, I have concisely covered the topic in more detail in another document, which you may download for free or read online by clicking the title here: Lord of the Rings: Apocalyptic Prophecies. When you get your copy, just jump to the chapter called 'Lord Sauron: Veiled Malice.'

      If you think Pope Leo XIII's explanation of Freemasonry in his famous encyclical is a bit on the tame side and are disappointed he didn't explain the situation better, you just might like this chapter. (Yes, it appears JRR Tolkien was influenced by these prophecies and the conspiracy theories around Freemasonry when writing his famous fantasy work. Even if you are not a Tolkien fan, you may find this illustrated document quite informative, and if you ARE a Tolkien fan, then it's a definitely bonus.)

*) The Great Leader to Come and the Restoration: it will be established by MONARCHIES

Returning to the saints and mystics, according to them, there will actually be two leaders raised up: a Great Monarch from France, (yes, the Monarchy of France and the Holy Roman Empire will be miraculously restored) and a saintly Pope, often called the 'Angelic Shepherd' or 'Angelic Pontiff' who will ascend the Chair of St. Peter.

The King will restore Christian secular order while the Pope will re-establish the ancient traditions of the Catholic Church, which will have been practically set aside if not completely trampled upon by a corrupt clergy. In fact, several of Marie-Julie Jahenny's revelations hints the corruption of the Church and the destruction of its ancient traditions began with the abuses brought about by Vatican II! (For Catholics who have never heard of Marie-Julie before, she was approved by her local bishop, meaning she did receive Church approval.)

According to all the prophecies about him, the King will be a great and holy man, he will be a most just ruler, and will be the delight of God's heart. He will re-establish the Christian monarchies of other European countries, and his influence will spread throughout the world.

(Image: the ancient crown of the Holy Roman Empire.
  The Great Monarch to come will be the last and greatest 
King of France and Holy Roman Emperor.)

God's plan of restoring the Kingdom of France is so important that St. Francis of Paola (1416-1507) ventures so far to say that in the latter times one will be able to discern those who truly wish to follow God's Will and are predestined souls if they take the prophecies concerning the return of the French King to heart and love to re-read his revelations on the same, while those who scoff at the idea and mock it will show themselves to be reprobates inclined to the side of evil.

St. Michael the Archangel warned Marie-Julie Jahenny that those who thought the restoration of the French Monarchy to be impossible should not to scoff, furthering adding, “Ask them if they are prophets!” Nothing is impossible with God. A government can be turned around in a blink of an eye and switched around overnight. Just look at the UK and the Brexit vote at the current time if you don't think a political situation of a country can change rapidly.

St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) declared that monarchy was the form of rule closest to God's ideal concerning the government of the earth, and it has recently come to my attention that St. Padre Pio (1887-1968) allegedly stated that only through the Davidic Monarchy, (the Monarchy of France) could the Church practise freely, and that “… Republics, on the other hand, where power is placed in the hands of people, raise up serpent spirits from the earth which harm the people of God and stop them rising up to the God of Heaven.” (To read more about St. Padre Pio's comments on the Monarchy, click here.)

Yes, I would like to delve further into the topic of why God approves of monarchies over democracy and has chosen the Monarchy of France to be the catalyst in the Great Renewal, but again, that would go well beyond the scope of this blog. The topic is also covered in Lord of the Rings: Apocalyptic Prophecies in the chapter "Absolute Monarchies ~ Approved by Heaven".

*) After the Revolutions and Wars, total World Annihilation by Fire—the Three Days of Darkness

The Great King and Angelic Pontiff will arrive in the midst of the chastisements of war and revolution, for the King is predicted to be a man of war. However, there is one great and terrible punishment to befall the earth after the wars if mankind still still refuses to convert: the Three Days of Darkness, which will actually come in the form of a devastating fire from the sky that mankind has not ever witnessed before.

The Three Days of Darkness have been predicted by many mystics. Blessed Anna Maria Tiagi of Rome (1769-1837), Blessed Mary of Jesus Crucified (Marie Baourdi), Pau France, (1846-1878), Sister Palma Maria Adolorata Matarelli d’Oria (1863), Marie-Julie Jahenny, and Blessed Elena Aiello and Sister Agnes Sasagawa, Akita, Japan (1973).

According to the prophecies, a devastating fire shall fall from the skies and wipe out one quarter to two-thirds of humanity and that those who are living will for a time envy the dead on account of the desolation. 

Marie-Julie Jahenny was given the most amount of details on how to recognise the signs when these dreaded days were approaching and how to prepare. No one is to look outside when the Days occur, or they will instantly be struck dead. The Days shall fall on a Thursday, a Friday and a Saturday, and she also mentioned as did the other mystics that nothing would light on those Days except for a candle blessed by a Catholic priest. The homes that had these blessed candles MIGHT be spared if the occupants were truly holy and wished to do God's will, they would not light in the homes of the ungodly. Also, Marie-Julie gave one further detail~they had to be made of 100% pure wax, such as beeswax, candles made of any other material would not light.

For more thorough information on the preparations necessary, you can read the following article “Marie-Julie Jahenny, the Breton Stigmatist”, just click the title.   Furthermore she of all the mystics to date has given the most complete details on how to prepare for the various chastisements and plagues, plus has revealed the identity of the King and how he will return. The article is a must-read for anyone interested in these prophecies.

Of course, we may ask why such a loving God would want to send such a horrific punishment,
but that's the point of the countless warnings, HE DOES NOT WISH TO SEND IT~The Sacred Heart explained to Marie-Julie Jahenny He did not wish to punish the earth, we are His creation and He loves us dearly, but if we constantly reject Him and choose evil, He will do what it takes to bring us to our senses if possible, an action which rends His heart.

("And when he drew near, seeing the city, he wept over it, saying: If thou also hadst known, and that in this thy day, the things that are to thy peace; but now they are hidden from thy eyes.  For the days shall come upon thee, and thy enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and straiten thee on every side, And beat thee flat to the ground, and thy children who are in thee: and they shall not leave in thee a stone upon a stone: because thou hast not known the time of thy visitation. Luke 19:41.44.)

 He further revealed to Marie-Julie that instead of turning to Him, the earth will abuse the Period of Mercy He will grant it and use it to become more advanced in evil. The earth would grow so corrupt He explained that there would not be one soul saved on earth if evil was allowed to continued unchecked. For the sake of the salvation of the those who remain faithful, He will be forced to wipe out those who have become corrupt. In all, eternal salvation of the soul and Eternal Life with Him is more important. However, the world will be finally be granted one last period of peace before the End of Days.

*) The Great Peace

After the earth has been cleansed, those who survive will be the new 'seed' of the Church according to Marie-Julie Jahenny, a predestined generation that will re-establish humanity as God wishes. The Great Monarch and the Angelic Pope will be given the gift of knowledge on how to restore humanity and this period of peace will exist for about 30 years. The earth will become extremely fruitful, and all strife and wars shall cease. There will no longer be any heresies or schisms between Christians for there will be only one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. The saints predict it will be the greatest era of the Church and many miracles will take place.

Sadly, the mystics and saints also relate that mankind will not appreciate this great peace and return to its old habits like the citizens of Nineveh. Humanity once more will become lax and resume its sinful ways when the reign of the Great Monarch ends. It is then that the Antichrist will make his appearance and reign for about three to four years. It will be the last and bloodiest period of the earth as the remaining faithful who will refuse to follow him will be persecuted and martyred. Then, the Final Coming of Christ will occur.

However, until then, there will be a great time of peace to look forward to, for those who heed the warnings and conform their lives to them.

Marie-Julie Jahenny was told by Heaven that the world would know the chastisements were approaching by an 'uneasy feeling', that everyone would sense that the 'times were not far away'.

Strange enough, I have lost count of how many people have said lately that they feel an 'uneasiness' and that they don't know what it is, but that they 'feel something is about to happen' soon in the world, something terrible and drastic, be it anything from natural catastrophes to a complete collapse in society as we know it. Just observing the startling rise in the number of  'Preppers' getting ready for 'something' but don't quite know what for is surely an indication that this spiritual 'world wide warning' has been given from Above.

It would be better to be considered a fool for God and be prepared rather than be lauded as worldly-wise but caught unaware. It is time to take the Message of Fatima to heart, and all other messages sent from Above as well.

Speaking of Fatima and the Signs of the Times: if you're wondering if the Great Monarch is so important in End Time prophecies where is he mentioned in the Bible, you might like my other blog post "The Lord Says: Look to the Sky for the Signs of the Times."


  1. sadly, St Pope JPII was NOT able to consecrate Russia (but only the world) in union w/ all the bishops. Had this been done, AS REQUESTED, our Lady's promises would have been fulfilled.

  2. For those who believe that the consecration never took place is calling Sr. LUCIA HERSELF A LIAR. She revealed that yes, the first 2 consecrecations were not valid as all the bishops did not participate in the consecration, but that the THIRD CONSECRATION with Pope John Paul II WAS ACCEPTED, eventhough many of the bishops did participate because the Pope did contact them all and had every intention of fulfilling every condition, but that it was the bishops who were disobedient. The Consecraction was accepted conditionally. The Pope consecrated Russia AND the world. I have also heard this information from someone who knew Sr. Lucia personally and who received a letter from her stating the same. If you had read the blog post, you would understand why the Reign of Peace has not come to us yet despite the Consecration taking place.

  3. Sorry. But I agree with the other two comments. Because the consecration was not done as Our Lord and Our Lady specified, and there was the Chief Exorcist of Rome who was present only yards from where the Pope was and no mention of Russia was made. The so-called fruits were conditional because the consecration was not fully carried out. I am not calling Sister Lucia a liar, but the Vatican had heavily censored all her pronouncements and all whom she met. Have you seen the two Lucys mentioned at traditioninaction.com? Do you truly believe that the full 3rd secret was given by the Vatican in 2001? Cause right thinking people don't. It doesn't add up. If Vatican 2 was the problem as foretold by MJJ then that same cabal are in control of the Church and could very well be in control of the Fatima message. I think that your work is very thought provoking nevertheless.
