Image: Sister Lucia upon the Brown Scapular

  

Remember to pray your rosaries daily and to wear the brown scapular. The daily morning consecration to the Brown Scapular is a pledge of obedience to Our Lady’s promises, which is to wear the brown scapular out of devotion for Sanctifying Grace and Her Immaculate Conception so that the soul shall not perish eternity in the eternal flames of Hell. 

The full promise of Our Lady of Mount Carmel to Saint Simon Stock July 16, 1251

“Accept this Scapular. It shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger and a pledge of peace. Whosoever dies clothed in this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire.”

Note: The promise must be taken in context. It would be heresy to confuse the Scapular with a good luck charm that automatically brings one to Heaven after death. It is true devotion to Our Lady that will keep us in Sanctifying Grace as long as we cooperate with the Graces Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, gives us. 

While we continue to wear our Brown Scalulars that Our Lady has given us as an instrument of Grace through devotion to Her Immaculate Conception, let us remember to pray for the salvation of souls and for those in Purgatory.

The weapon against Heresy And Sin: The Most Holy Rosary

Being that we live in dark times in which the errors of Russia have and continue to spread throughout the world and the Church as predicted by Our Lady of Fatima, causing apostasy and schism, it is important to recite the prayers of the most Holy Rosary daily in which was given by Our Immaculate Mother Mary, Theotokos; Mother of God Incarnate so that we do not become deceived and fall into Mortal Sin (God Forbid). 

We as Roman Catholics have to remember that the 15 promises of Our Lady to Saint Dominic and to those who recite the Most Holy Rosary daily with devotion will always be in affect since the aid of those in Heaven will never deceive nor lie to the flock, that being the Church. 

“The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.”

This promise that I am emphasizing, my dear friends, is a message of Hope. It is by prayer and God’s grace that we can convert the modernists within Holy Mother Church. Let us continue to do just that and even encourage heretics to do the same for their own salvation since it is dogma that there is no salvation outside the true faith. So remember, for the love of Jesus Christ and His Church: pray, pray, pray.

DEVOTION OF THE FIVE FIRST SATURDAYS: Brief history and information

  July 13, 1917, Our Lady revealed that she would come to ask for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart and for the Communion of Reparation of the Five First Saturdays. As a result, she asked for the devotion in 1925 and the consecration in 1929.

 
While staying at the House of the Dorothean Sister in Pontevedra, Portugal, Sister Lucia received a vision on December 10, 1925 where the Blessed Mother appeared alongside a Boy who stood over a luminous cloud. Our Lady rested one hand on the Boy’s shoulder while she held on the other hand a heart pierced with thorns around it.

Sister Lucia heard the Boy say, “Have pity on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother which is covered with thorns with which ingrate men pierce it at every moment with no one to make an act of reparation to pull them out.”

Our Lady expressed her request in the following words,

“See, my daughter, My Heart surrounded with thorns with which ingrates pierce me at every moment with blasphemies and ingratitude. You, at least, make sure to console me and announce that all those who for five months, on the first Saturdays, go to confession, receive Communion, say five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for 15 minutes meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with the purpose of making reparation to Me, I promise to assist them at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for the salvation of their souls.” 

A few days afterward, Sister Lucia detailed this vision in a letter addressed to Monsignor Manuel Pereira Lopes, her confessor when she resided in the Asylum of Vilar in the city of Oporto, Portugal.

  
In June 1929, Lucia, already a religious of St. Dorothy, describes the following apparition: Vision of the Trinity

” . . . . suddenly the entire convent Chapel was illuminated in a supernatural light, and a Cross of light appeared over the altar and reached the ceiling. On the superior part the face of man was seen and his body down to the waist. A dove of light was over his chest and nailed to the Cross was another man. Suspended in air over his waist I was able to see a chalice with a large Host. Drops of Blood from the face of Jesus Crucified and His pierced side fell into the the chalice, dripping from the Host. Beneath the right arm on the Cross was Our Lady. It was Our Lady of Fatima, with her Immaculate Heart in her left hand, without thorns or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames. Underneath the left arm on the Cross, big letters, similar to crystal water came down to the altar forming these words: Grace and Mercy.’ ”

Lucia said : “I understood it was the mystery of the Blessed Trinity that was revealed to me, and I perceived inner light about this mystery which I’m unable to reveal. The Blessed Virgin told me: The time has come in which God asks the Holy Father that in union with all the bishops of the world the consecration of Russia to my Heart be made, I promise salvation through this means.’ Preventing diffusion of error and advance its conversion.”

Note: the Consecration has not been done validly. See Link

The elements for the 1st Saturday devotion 

 

1- Confession: Essential for the journey of repentance and conversion. 

2- Eucharist: The first fruit of this devotion is the worship of the Holy Eucharist in three ways: sacrifice, communion, and adoration.

3-Holy Rosary prayer with two aspects: prayer, meditation. Five mysteries are to be prayed.

4- The promise of salvation   
Meditation of the Holy Rosary: 

The vocal prayer of the Rosary has always been fundamentally based on the interior act of meditation on the mysteries of the life, sufferings, and glory of our Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary. The prayer that our Lady requested us to pray after each mystery is : “Oh, my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.” In this prayer, we are praying for the conversion and eternal salvation of the souls of sinners. 

These sinners may be very obstinate in their sins, refusing to repent. Some are unknowingly in mortal sin and are at the precipice of death. Finally, there are those who because of circumstances of location or education, are far from the possibility of finding a priest and receiving the sacraments, even in their last moments. 

 The graces and merits from the reparation and prayers of Christians who are united in meditation with the Heart of Mary, Mother and refuge of sinners, are especially for these poor souls “most in need of God’s mercy.”
Promise of Salvation:

To those who practice this devotion of the First Five Saturdays of the Month, Our Lady promised: “I promise to assist them at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation.” She does not promise eternal salvation, but the graces necessary for salvation. 

There are many testimonies from souls particularly devoted to the Heart of Mary who receive knowledge from heaven about the proximity of their hour of death. It is not necessarily an announcement of death, but a new awareness and need to receive the sacraments with more dignity, a purer intention in all their actions, and an intensification of charity and dedication to their apostolate. The Heart of Mary perfects the souls of her children until they reach their decisive encounter with their Divine Savior.

Is Instagram against Fatima? 

A fellow faithful Catholic that I follow was recently blocked from adding content just for liking images of Our Lady that involved the hashtag “Our Lady of Fatima”. I find this to be quite disturbing. Is instagram threatened by Fatima and Our Lady’s message? I challenge the admins of Instagram to openly apologize for this and to pray 5 decades of the Rosary. God Bless.

The Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

It was through the month of May to October of 1917 that Our Lady had revealed prophetic messages to three little children of Fatima, Portugal; Lucia, Jancita, and Francisco, that involved predictions, requests, promises, and warnings. One request of Our Lady that we must consider investigating upon and submitting to is Her request for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart. Our Blessed Mother of the Most Holy Rosary, the lilly of The Trinity, stated “I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart. If people attend to my requests, Russia will be converted and the world will have peace.” For those who are new to the message of Our Lady of Fatima, you may ask “Well how is Russia to be consecrated?” Our Lady stated the following to Sister Lucia, one of the three visionaries of Fatima, on June 13,1929 the following:

“This is the moment when God asks the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart. He promises to save it by that means. So many are the souls which the justice of God condemns for sins committed against me that I come to ask for reparation. Sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.”

Due to innocent ignorance of this very request seven Popes, including Pope Francis, failed to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

(Caution, Jimmy Papist moment ahead!)

Jimmy Papist–  But wait a second, wasn’t Russia already consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1984 by Pope John Paul II? What about Pope Pius XII in 1942 when he consecrated the whole world with “The People of Russia”?  –

This is the belief in which many Catholics uphold because of the misunderstanding of the request of Our Lady as Jimmy demonstrated above, however, this is incorrect because of the fact that Our Lady requested that Russia alone be consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart, thus the consecration was invalid and statistics prove this since the promises of Our Lady have not been given to us, such as world peace and the conversion of sinners to the Catholic Church.

Sr.Lucia was asked if an attempted consecration by Pope John Paul II, in 1982, had sufficed. She replied that it did not suffice, because Russia was not mentioned and the world’s bishops had not participated. Another attempted consecration in 1984 likewise did not mention Russia or involve the participation of many of the world’s bishops, and Sister Lucia stated immediately afterwards that this consecration, too, had failed to meet Our Lady’s requirements! (See:Link)

Our Lady of Fatima warned that if Her requests were not heeded, Russia would “spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.” However, in His infinite mercy, God has offered us a way to avoid this terrible punishment. Through the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we will not only avoid the predicted chastisements, but we will be granted the inestimable gift of peace throughout the world for all mankind.

CR48-pg27b

Our Lord stated to Sr.Lucia  on June 13, 1929 ‘They have not chosen to heed my request… As the King of France, they will regret it and then will do it, but it will be too late. Russia will already have spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions against the Church, the Holy Father will have much to suffer.’”

Let us continue to pray for the consecration of Russia, for if we do not respond, we will have much to regret.

HAIL, holy Queen, Mother of mercy.
Hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
To thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us.
And after this our exile show unto us
the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Blessed Feast of Our Lady of Fatima!

 

The Three Children of Fatima: Lucia, Francisco, and Jancita in which Our Lady appeared to.

 Happy Feast day of Our Lady of Fatima! On this day we celebrate the apparitions that Our Lady has given to the three children of Fatima. We must obey the fundamental principals in which Our Mother had instructed us to do: Do penance and  pray the rosary daily for the conversion of sinners. Let us continue to pray for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary so that restoration of the Church may come, souls may be saved, and so that there may be world wide peace. Let us also remember Father Gruner and the apostolate he founded in our prayers, especially in these dark times in which we have lost a pious soldier of the faith.
