Lucia’s Memories

May 13, 2022 by sd

From Catholicismpure:

In what has been sometimes described as ‘the last vision of Fatima,’ Sr. Lucia, one of the three children present when Our Blessed Lady appeared at Fatima from May 13 to October 13, 1917, writes in her own words of her ‘last’ vision, years later, at a Dominican convent in Tuy, Spain, of the Holy Trinity. (She was there before entering the Carmel of Coimbra.)

Sister Lucia died on February 13, 2005, at her Carmelite convent in Coimbra, Portugal, after a long illness. Living in isolation in the cloistered convent, Sister Lucia had reportedly lost her eyesight and hearing in the months preceding her death.

Francisco and Jacinta Marto were beatified by Pope John Paul in ceremonies that took place at Fatima on May 13, 2000– the anniversary of the first apparition there. Both Francisco and Jacinta had died in their youth– in 1919 and 1920, respectively. Sister Lucia made a rare journey outside the Carmelite cloister to take part in the ceremony. That last vision:

“Being alone one night, I knelt near the rails in the middle of the chapel and, prostrate, I prayed the prayers of the angel. Feeling tired, I then stood up and continued to say the prayers with my arms in the form of a cross. The only light was that of the sanctuary lamp. Suddenly the whole chapel was illumined by supernatural light, and above the altar appeared a Cross of Light, reaching to the ceiling.  In a brighter light at the upper part of the Cross could be seen the face of a Man and his body as far as the waist; upon his breast was a dove of light; nailed to the cross was the body of another man. A little below the waist, I could see a chalice and a large Host suspended in the air, on to which drops of blood were falling from the Face of Jesus Crucified and from the wound in His side. These drops ran down onto the host and fell into the chalice. Beneath the right arm of the Cross was Our Lady and in her hand was her Immaculate Heart.  (It was Our Lady of Fatima, with the Immaculate Heart in her left hand, without sword or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames). Under the left arm of the Cross, large letters, as if of crystal clear water which ran down upon the altar, formed these words: «Grace and Mercy.» I understood that it was the Mystery of the Most Holy Trinity which was shown to me, and I received lights about this mystery which I am not permitted to reveal.

“Our Lady then said to me: «The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father, in union with all the bishops of the world, to make the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means.  There are so many souls whom the Justice of God condemns for sins committed against me and for whom I have come to ask reparation: sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.»

“I gave an account of this to the confessor, who ordered me to write down what Our Lady wanted done. Later, in an intimate communication, Our Lord complained to me saying: «They did not wish to heed my request. Like the King of France, they will repent and do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church; the Holy Father will have much to suffer.»”

THE TWO TIMES (comment)

The words “Grace and Mercy” are to indicate the two distinct periods we are in, which began at different times, occur simultaneously, but end differently.

The “time of grace” began to flow like water with Our Lady’s apparitions at Rue de Bac to St. Catherine Labouré. Our Lady appeared standing on a globe to indicate the global significance of her visitations. She appeared with her hands covered in rings and jewels from which light shone toward the globe. She tells St. Catherine that “These rays symbolize the graces I shed upon those who ask for them. The jewels which give no rays symbolize the graces that are not given because they are not asked for.” She asks St. Catherine to have a medal struck which illustrates her as the “mediatrix” of all graces. God in His mercy has given the Church two centuries to receive these graces to prepare, in particular, for the time of mercy.

The “time of mercy” began when an angel with a sword, who appeared in a vision to the children of Fatima, was about to strike the earth with a chastisement. Our Blessed Mother suddenly appeared again with light emanating from her. The angel’s punishment was postponed as he cried out to the earth, “Penance, penance, penance!” We know this began what Jesus called the “time of mercy” when He spoke to St. Faustina sometime later.

I am prolonging the time of mercy for the sake of [sinners]…. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy… He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice. —Diary of St Faustina, 1160, 848, 1146

What is the difference? This time of grace is a period in which, through our Blessed Lady’s intercession, she is drawing great graces upon the Church to prepare her for the final confrontation with the powers of darkness in this present era. The time of mercy will continue through the chastisements which will follow (even if few accept His mercy) until God purifies the earth of all wickedness, thus beginning a time of peace. Those who refuse His mercy must pass through the door of His justice.

In these troubled times, we ask Our Lady of Fatima to intercede for our World, our beloved Holy Father, and our Church.+

Pro-Abortion Activists Plan Invasion of Catholic Churches Across U.S. Starting Mother’s Day

Pray and fast for the protection of our churches!

The pro-abortion activism group Ruth Sent Us is calling for invasions of Catholic churches from Sun., May 8 until Sat., May 14 in protest of the recent news about the Supreme Court’s draft allegedly overturning Roe vs. Wade.

During their protest, the group dresses in what they call a handmaiden’s cloak, which represents women’s oppression.

The Third Secret of Fatima and the Visions of Bl. Elizabeth Canori-Mora

The prophetic visions of Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora contain some striking similarities with the Third Secret of Fatima, and appear more relevant to the Church of today than ever before. The below passage, taken from the 1878 book The Life of the Venerable Elizabeth Canori Mora, by Mary Elizabeth Herbert.  Worth noting in particular is Bl. Elizabeth’s vision of a much weakened Church being restored after two angels gather up an offering of supplication in two chalices which are then given to St. Felix of Valois and St. John of Matha – the founders of the Trinitarian Order, which was dedicated to ransoming captive Christians. It appears to suggest that this vision of the restoration of the Church, which reflects the two angels gathering up the blood of the martyrs seen in the Third Secret, is in fact related to the end of the period of the unbinding of Satan described in Rev 20:

One day, during an ecstasy, S. John the Baptist conducted her into an august and mysterious temple. The Blessed Virgin laid the Infant Jesus upon an Altar, and began to pray for the Church, supplicating her Divine Son to suspend the rigours of His Justice, and not to disperse the Ministers of the Sanctuary. She reminded Him that she was His Mother, and that, as His Mother, she hoped to be heard.

The Infant Jesus replied: “My justice will no longer support so many abominations. You are My Mother, but you are also My creature!”

With the august Queen of Heaven a multitude of Religious, united with their holy Founders, had also implored mercy. But scarcely had they heard the words of the Divine Infant, than they fell on their knees and adored the impenetrable decrees of the Most High. Then all the holy Religious offered to Him the incense of the good works of their respective Orders. The Infant God then raised His Hand, blessed them, and with them His faithful servant. The exile of the Sovereign Pontiff and the dispersion of the College of Cardinals took place very soon after this vision.

Another time three Angels conducted Elizabeth into a subterranean place where, in secret and in darkness, the impious were plotting the ruin of the Church. She there saw also persons covered with a mask of hypocrisy, who, under the specious pretext of doing good, secretly favoured the designs of the agents of Hell. The Venerable Mother was penetrated by a feeling of horror in presence of a sight of which the idea would never have presented itself to her mind. To console her. Our Lord showed her the re-establishment of the Society of Jesus, through the intercession of S. Ignatius Loyola. She also saw a Father of the same Society, illustrious by his knowledge and virtue, who, in union with other Fathers, defended the rights of Holy Church, and many others who shed their blood for Jesus Christ.

Actuated only by her zeal for the Church, Elizabeth, in her humility, addressed ardent prayers to Our Lord to obtain a cessation of this persecution. At that moment the All-Powerful caused His Justice to shine forth, and exterminated these wretches in a manner so prompt and terrible, that during several days her mind was troubled. She felt throughout her whole body a most intense terror, and experienced for a long time an icy coldness which ran through all her limbs. The following vision made an impression upon her no less vivid.

The Church appeared to her standing before the throne of God, supplicating Him to spare her children, and especially the Priests, Secular and Regular. But the Most High refused to listen, and said to her: “Take the part of My Justice, and judge your own cause.” At these words the Church took off all her ornaments, aided by three Angels, executioners of Divine Justice; reduced to this sad state, she became so weak that she could not support herself. Then Our Lord gave her a staff to support herself upon, and a veil to cover her head.

In her desolation she bitterly sobbed, and deplored the solitude in which her children had left her. Suddenly the Spirit of the Lord invested her with a bright and intense light, which, spreading itself in four different directions, accomplished great and wonderful things. In the mild rays of this glory, those who slumbered in error arose, and re-entered her bosom, surrounding her with homage and respect. The Church appeared more beautiful and resplendent than ever. Six of the principal Religious Orders appeared as so many firm and strong columns destined to sustain her.

But, before enjoying this triumph, she had to pass through evils so frightful, that Elizabeth’s Confessor was terrified by them. Desirous to avert them, he ordered his heroic penitent to go to S. Mary Major and make an entire offering of herself, of all the benefits she had received, and of those which she was to receive, in union with the offering of Jesus Christ upon the Cross. Elizabeth piously hastened to obey; and at the moment when she offered herself to Our Lord, two Angels descended from Heaven, received her offering in two chalices which they gave to S. Felix of Valois and S. John of Matha, who presented them to the Blessed Virgin, and she presented them to the Holy Trinity. The two chalices were placed before the throne of the Most High, and there remained to appease His just anger.

Our Lord confided to her His secrets ; she wept unceasingly at seeing Him prepared to discharge upon the world the weight of His anger. She would have wished to deliver men, at the price of all her blood, from the evils which threatened them. But her prudent Confessor told her not to oppose the designs of God, and to content herself with praying in conformity with His Holy Will. She did so, and Our Lord, showing that He was moved, said to her : “This is a prayer worthy of Me.” One day, however, the ardour of her zeal caused her to forget this rule. Having seen that God was about to show forth His Justice, she flew in spirit to the foot of His Throne, and incessantly prayed that He would stop His avenging arm. At that moment the chastisement would have drawn down upon many the loss of both body and soul.

One day she could not see, without extreme pain, so many persons of all ages and of every condition attach themselves to the perverse maxims of the world, and without shame outrage the God of all Majesty. In the ardour of her zeal to remedy this grave disorder, she offered herself to God to suffer all sorts of torments at the hands of men, and all kinds of vexations from devils. The Heavenly Father accepted her offering, and gave her the power of binding the devil who perverted so many souls, and of enclosing him in the abyss with the aid of two Fathers of the Order of the Holy Trinity. Mary Elizabeth Herbert, The Life of the Venerable Elizabeth Canori Mora, (London: R. Washbourne, 1878), pp101-104

Hitler’s Sign—-Seer Lucia dos Santos Great Sign- My Title

November 3, 2021 by sd

As many know, from roughly January 25 to 27 in 1938, there was an extraordinary display of the aurora borealis or northern lights, seen across Africa, down to northern Africa, and across North America. So bright was the red that in some nations it looked like a blaze had erupted; in London they called for fire brigades, concerned that Windsor Castle was on fire.

Seer Lucia dos Santos, viewing it from her convent in Spain (she moved back to Portugal later), took it to be the “great sign” foreseen in her three secrets, the omen for a second world war, which began soon after when Hitler marched into Austria, setting off a chain of monumental events. Lucia wrote that “if scientists would investigate, they would find that it was not an aurora, in the form in which it appeared, but the ‘great sign.’”

In fact, so well-known is that association between the secrets and the aurora of 1938 that even in secular circles — from academic papers to Wikipedia — it is known as the “Fatima Geomagnetic Storm of 1938.”

It is activity on the sun that causes the lights, and sometimes those flares and storms — waves of electromagnetism — can disrupt electronics on earth. Theoretically, a massive one could fry our communications infrastructure.

A significant one, “G-3” on a scale of one to five, occurred last weekend, and while it didn’t cause auroras quite like some in history, seen in Europe but largely obscured in North America by cloud cover, it accents a page in the annals of geomagnetic storms. For as it turns out, a year later, on August 24, 1939, “a day after signing the Non-Aggression Pact with the Soviet Union, Hitler met with his inner circle at the Eagle’s Nest above Berchtesgaden,” notes scholar Eric Kurlander.

The Eagle's Nest: historic viewpoint over Berchtesgaden

“Watching a display of northern lights, he ostensibly ‘saw an omen in the predominantly red light cast on him and his friends.’

Hitler told his aides that ‘the omen clearly meant that without force, Germany would make it this time [after losing World War One].

“This omen confirmed Hitler in his decision, according to some witnesses, to go forward with the invasion of Poland a week later. He would not look back, taking a ‘magical’ approach to wartime operations for the duration of the war.”

Amazing it is to think how one display of the aurora was a great sign to Catholics — including one of the holiest of the Faith, Lucia dos Santos — while another one was a sign to those on the side of darkness.

And so it was full circle — a sign to the world that war was about to begin, and shortly after, a sign for the one who would start it.

The Recent Eruption at Cumbre Vieja and Sr. Lucia’s 1944 Tuy Apparition

A lot of people have been contacting me recently, to ask my thoughts on the recent eruption of Cumbre Vieja in the Canary Islands, on 19th Sept, 2021 – the feast of Our Lady of La Salette. Some are worried that this could potentially result in the cataclysm that Sr. Lucia seen in a vision, during an apparition of Our Lady in 1944. It was during this apparition that the Blessed Virgin instructed Sr. Lucia to write down the contents of the Third Secret of Fatima. During a recent podcast with Fr. Richard Heilman and Doug Barry, I tried to explain how I’m not expecting the catastrophe seen in Sr. Lucia’s 1944 apparition anytime soon, because of the significance of the katēchon of 2Thes 2:6-7 – the “restraining force” which holds back the appearance of the Antichrist. See around the 41 minute at this link: The Katechon and the Binding of Satan .

In my book Unveiling the Apocalypse: The Final Passover of the Church, I argue that Sr. Lucia’s vision of the angel touching the earth with a flaming lance is connected with the eschatological earthquake described in Rev 16:
