“Fatima: Your Last Chance!”
Says It All:
There Is No Other Option!
May 8, 2012
In a statement that has surprised many, the apostolic nuncio to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, called on American Catholics to “lead the entire Church in the world” to revitalize the Faith.
Archbishop Vigano went on to tell his audience at the Pontifical College Josephinum, in Ohio, on April 27 that this call for U.S. Catholics to lead the universal Church is “the vision of the Holy Father.”
His Excellency noted the decline of the Catholic Faith in Europe, which he said “needs an example.” That hope for such an example should be placed in the supposed vigor and orthodoxy of Catholicism in the U.S. is a cause for puzzlement and concern.
According to recent polls, the “Catholic” voters in the U.S. still favor Barack Obama, who has openly declared war on the Catholic Church by mandating that Catholic institutions provide contraceptives and abortifacient drugs to their employees.
Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria created a firestorm of controversy recently by criticizing the Obama mandate and saying that Catholics must vote their consciences.
He was angrily denounced by the faculty of Notre Dame University, and the Internal Revenue Service is said to be considering an investigation of the bishop’s remarks. At stake is the Church’s tax exemption.
Also, many “Catholic” colleges and universities in the U.S. will feature pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage commencement speakers in the coming weeks..
And the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in the U.S., recently rebuked by a Vatican report for its departure from Catholic teaching in several areas, is far from bowing its head. The LCWR has enlisted the support of the mainstream media, which is accusing the hierarchy of trying to resurrect the Inquisition.
Catholic parishes and schools in the U.S. are also closing at an alarming rate. And a recent survey of college students conducted by Georgetown University finds Catholic students rejecting their Faith at higher rates than non-Catholics.
Is the Holy Father misinformed about the Church in the U.S.? Or is the situation in Europe so dire that Catholicism in America looks healthy by comparison?
In any event, it is hard to share the Holy Father’s optimism (or is it a desperate hope?) that the loss of the Faith worldwide will be stemmed by the Church in the United States.
There is only one hope, only one Person who can help the Church now: Our Lady of Fatima. We must pray that the Holy Father will look to Our Lady, and not to the United States, for the means to revitalize the Faith worldwide.
The Fatima Prophecy makes no mention of the United States. Our Lady names Russia as the key to world peace, or the agent of world chastisement.
It is Russia, and not the United States, that will revitalize the Faith, after Russia is converted to Catholicism. And this will happen only after the Pope and bishops do as Our Lady requests and consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart.
We are going to Rome from May 13-18 for “Fatima: Your Last Chance!” to remind the Pope and the bishops they have but one option to save the Church and the world. There is no alternative to the consecration.
If you are able to join us for this historic and crucial conference, don’t hesitate. Come to Rome. It is not too late. If you can’t come to the conference, please pray for its success. You can watch it on www.fatima.org or on our new TV internet site, http://www.fatima.org/tv/index.html
And if you can help with the enormous cost of this conference, please don’t hesitate. All of our hope rests with Our Lady.
