History and a Historian
It is best not to view this in landscape mode.
The world of today, is not as it once was, say–for example–in the 1950s. The flow of electricity, the information age and science and transportation are quite different.
Historically, there are various people who don’t want you to believe in the relevancy of Fatima in the world of today.
There are several points to this. It is also old history that more than one Pope since 1940 has done their own consecration but there is one, the one of 1984 that is claimed to have been set on the sunset of accomplishment.
More than ever, there is also the present danger of nuclear holocaust with a potential of killing every human if every nuclear weapon were fired all at once.
The latest development between Russia and the United States is rather sad.
The scenario also exists that it is no longer fantasy that weapons of mass destruction are in the hands of a military elite in North Korea that are not afraid to deploy their weapons. This may sound unreal, but North Korea has one of the largest fleet of submarines in the Pacific, as related by veteran submariner Kenneth Sewell to Art Bell Oct. 8, 2006. Maj. Dames in an interview of April 23, 2013, told George Noory on Coast To Coast AM not even the U.S. government knows this one (at that time): there was a devious, diabolical plan of transporting by submarine already-developed devices to be placed off the coasts of Hawaii and the West Coast of the U.S. They would abrogate old-fashioned long-range missile launches. Originally, Major Dames’ team thought those devices were nuclear mines. But, so claims Dames, they would have the potential to be set off as close to U.S. territories and harbors as possible, if the U.S. attacks North Korea.
He is quoted as saying that in this Communist regime, it is not Kim Jong-u who is running the show, but some of his generals, which includes his aunt, a 4-star general–and, on the ropes would be Red China. In January of 2016 N. Korea exploded a nuclear bomb. According to ABC reporter Martha Raddatz on ABC World News Tonight, January 6, 2016, this was “North Korea’s fourth nuclear test since 2006, and the North has the means to deliver those weapons.” Incidentally, in September of 2017, the world was transfixed on North Korea’s claim that it detonated a miniature H-bomb to protect itself from “war mongers like the United States.”
Wars are not just part of the story of Fatima.
Before Pope Benedict retired, he made two pertinent statements, one on May 13, 2010, as described in the ebook, and one two days earlier during an airline interview. Both will be mentioned once more here.
As a world was draped in a darkish depression/recession and also war, Pope Benedict said that whoever thinks the prophetic mission of Fatima is ended deceives himself. This shows that the once Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith–if you remember your history–reversed himself on the relevancy of Fatima. Years before, under his tutelage as Cardinal–an intelligent cardinal with two doctoral degrees, and also obedient to Secretary of State Sodano–followed the main value of Fatima that Vatican officials had followed for decades: To do things the Blessed Mother never asked for. And, now, he reversed policy and made an astronomical statement by saying the story of Fatima is important. Really? Is it an opposite statement from what a Vatican had tried to play that Fatima is no longer relevant to world peoples?
On a journey to visit the Fatima Shrine in Portugal, on May 11, 2010, the Pope debunked the idea that the Third Secret was just a visual depiction of past events, and that it was a false claim that the attacks against the Catholic Church are mainly coming from the outside.
The following is verbatim what Pope Benedict XVI told reporters while on a seemingly forgotten May 2010 jet flight:
...this great vision of the suffering of the Pope, which we can in substance refer to John Paul II, are indicated future realities of the Church which are little by little developing and revealing themselves. Thus, it is true that beyond the moment indicated in the vision, it is spoken, it is seen, the necessity of a Passion of the Church that naturally is reflected in the person of the Pope; but the Pope is in the Church, and therefore the sufferings of the Church are what is announced....
The following is what stands out: “As for the novelty that we can discover today in this message, it is that attacks on the Pope and the Church do not come from outside, but the sufferings of the Church come precisely from within the Church, from sins that exist in the Church. This has always been known, but, today we see it in a really terrifying way: that the greatest persecution of the Church does not come from enemies outside, but arises from sin in the Church.”
(Within two years, Benedict citing health reasons, announced to the world he had to resign.)
However, the novelty was cast.
The attacks on the Pope and the Church do not come from outside, but... precisely from within the Church....This has always been known, but, today we see it in a really terrifying way: that the greatest persecution of the Church does not come from enemies outside, but arises from sin in the Church.
Benedict tells us that the Church’s own members–enemies of the Catholic Church–were destroying her from within. It leaves one to shed a tear, for it is so sad. Technically, if left uncorrected, a tipping point will be reached that may spell doom for the internal structure of the Faith and possibly (probably) lead to a chastisement of the entire world.
His view could mean any one form of dark forces within the Vatican, be they factors in the Church hierarchy who want some reform; pro-one world society types; followers of the 3rd A/C forewarned by Nostradamus; debunkers of the power of the Blessed Mother; accomplices for the spread of pro-homosexual rings within the Vatican; plain, old, crafty practitioners of Freemasonry, or all of the above.
An infiltration via a high internal level at the Vatican was an absurd idea some 60 years ago, no matter which features of dark forces within the Vatican you choose to believe in.
An occupation of the Vatican by dark and foreboding forces?
It is prudent to remember this important key: Hoping to use the power of the press, a modern Vatican has contended that the vision of the 3rd Secret, as released in 2000, pertains to events of the past, and that, moreover, it portended nothing for the future. This concept to relegate the entire Fatima story to the past is keeping in practice with the passion of the one-world orders, especially the upper practitioners of the mysteries of Freemasonry (the Grand Masters, the super high-level ones).
Historically, there are various people who don’t want you to believe in the relevancy of Fatima in the world of today. In terms of religion, there is a book written by a Catholic researcher named Antonio Socci, which I dare to say is well written, with an assertion that there was a hidden letter/envelope shown on Italian television that was connected to cover-ups in the Vatican. It is relevant to the story of Fatima.
Over 100,000 copies in English have been sold of his book titled, The Fourth Secret of Fatima. As a tidbit of information, there used to exist links, complete with pictures about the hidden letter/envelope that is spoken in his book. But, they are mostly absent from researchers, except see page 54 in our digital book. We also have in the world of today, a strange story of an assault on Socci that forms a corollary to the complete story of Fatima, a story many people never heard of. Newspapermen were there when the assault took place in 2007. Another relatively unknown story has surfaced involving a Rev. Claudio Gatti of the diocese of Rome and a mystic Miss Marisa Rossi of Rome. We ask you, upon your first impression, do not totally discard this story as superficial, as some of the words focus on the Third Secret released by the Vatican in 2000. In essence, all this may be the things that St. Malachy of Ireland wrote about eight centuries ago, alluding to a certain papal list and a destruction of a 7-hilled city.
To recap, on May 13, 2010 Pope Benedict stated, “Whoever thinks that the prophetic mission of Fatima is concluded deceives himself”–then, in 2013, Pope Benedict resigns in February. Within hours, lightning hits the dome of St. Peter.
The Lightning struck the dome of Saint Peter’s Basilica within hours of the Pope’s resignation, Feb. 11, 2013 at 5:55 pm; coincidentally, the same exact hour that back on October 26, 1958 white smoke had poured out from the Sistine Chapel stovepipe telling the world that a new Pope was elected, one by the name of Federico Cardinal Tedeschini. He was elected it seems as the successor to Pope Pius XII. However, the new Pope failed to appear at the papal balcony. Within the half-hour mark of the white smoke, there was an announcement that there was a mistake, and on October 28 a successor picked, Angelo Roncalli, who became Pope John XXIII.
Also that February of 2013, Russia did massive practice runs for nuclear war. Russian nuclear forces conducted a major war exercise. [One ace reporter who spilled the beans on the Russian alert story is Bill Gertz of the Washington Free Beacon: (it) “raised concerns inside the Pentagon and with the U.S. European Command because it was the largest exercise of its kind in 20 years.... It involved a heightened alert status of Russia’s nuclear forces.” Was the consecration done? No? Yes? No? (Wars have not vanished, although the USSR of 1984 is no more.)
Mr. Gertz also pointed out: “The exercises followed a recent surge in Russian strategic bomber flights that include a recent circling of the U.S. Pacific island of Guam by two Tu-95 Bear bombers and simulated bombing runs by Tu-95s against Alaska and California in June and July.”
These exercises tested the transport of both strategic and tactical nuclear weapons near Europe and the Pacific.
Then, a few days after the retired Pope arrives at Castel Gandolfo, an earthquake shook the castle. One month after summer ended, we also had Pope Francis attempt something special. Flash forward to October 2013
Pope Francis on Sunday, October 13, 2013, conducted a ceremony before some 150,000 people gathered in St. Peter’s Square. He knew what Pope Saint John Paul II had said in 1982 in the English Edition of L’Osservatore Romano: “the messages of Fatima are deeply rooted in Scripture and Sacred Tradition of the Catholic Church.” Moreover, from August 2013, countless hours were carried on about the October ceremony and that the Pope would consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Flashing back a bit, in a sermon made by Pope Saint John Paul II on May 13, 2000, he said, “According to the divine plan, a woman clothed with the Sun (Apocalypse 12:1) came down from Heaven to this Earth to visit the privileged children of the Father.”
His excerpt continued: “These words from the first reading of the Mass make us think of the great struggle between good and evil....The message of Fatima is a call to converting, alerting humanity to have nothing to do with the dragon whose tail swept down a third of the stars of Heaven, and cast them to the Earth. Man’s final goal is Heaven....”
The ceremony of October 13, 2013, was touted by the Vatican as Giornata Mariana (Marian Day). It was built up as a day to be special and novel.
Before October, the planned “consecration” sparked much interest. For two long months, the Vatican had been announcing the new Pope would do a consecration and special ceremony October 12-13 in Rome. (At no time did the Vatican state it was going to be a consecration of Russia.) In the eyes of Father Gruner and his staff of the Fatima Center, a miracle could still have happened, as the date set for the ceremony happened to fall on Sunday, October 13. Gruner and his staff prepared a unique 4-page report that was inserted in Il Tempo, the third largest daily newspaper in Rome, with a readership of some 200,000 plus. They also distributed another 200,000 copies by hand all over Rome of The Fatima Observer (L’Osservatore di Fatima.) It gave a historical rundown on the Fatima apparition and the importance of the request for the Consecration of Russia. Did it do any good?
The landscape of the world and the Catholic Church has changed much the last 60 years since the mandate to release the 3rd Secret was to be in 1960. For the past 240 generations–the past 6000 years at least–man has passed on the regimentals of war, but for sure, the modern world has witnessed a horrible growth of atrocities realized by people in civilian clothes and not in uniformed bodies.
The stratosphere is the limit when you consider the wars of today are guerillas, sporadic, piecemeal land attacks, whether they are in the mountains or not, or to use the so-called term, a war of insurgency, as is the new term. They are not the physical landscape of total war of the past. It is not a nation with troops in one uniform battling against another nation-state in a different uniform anymore.
What does the future hold? With the attack on Paris in November 2015, we saw most probably a life-changing point in history, which tears into your heart.
Anyone who believes this will be a short war and dismisses the escalation factor, must be told, as stated before, that is a dream.
A Cardinal Ratzinger, who later became pope, stated in 1984 that he had read the Third Secret and it included the importance of “the Last Times”. No mention of war was stated in 1984 or on June of 2000, but Our Blessed Mother did years before.
Has the world been dipped in more wars and killings since 2013?
For whatever reason, the Pope did not explore anything significantly new. When Pope Francis I performed his ceremony in late 2013, he did no consecration whatsoever. Unlike the consecration-attempt of 1984, or the entrustment of 2000 when Pope Saint John Paul II ordered over 1500 of his bishops to be in Rome (the largest concentration of bishops since Vatican II), the Pope with a chemistry degree–Pope Francis I–had no defining prayer of request to either the Immaculate Heart of Mary or Jesus Christ. Nor were the words “ask” or “request” even used, as had been used in the 1930s Consecration by humble bishops of Portugal. During this Mass, in the homily, Pope Francis never dared mention Fatima even once! and, yet, one must be ever mindful of what just took place a few short months before, the strategic and tactical nuclear exercises conducted by the Russians. I suspect, this may have had a behind-the-scenes reason why the new Pope did what he did. Could this have been a hidden, influential force that made him to omit mention of “consecration”?
His prayer was beautiful, short and sweet, but was not an act of consecration. The consecration to the world or consecration of Russia was explicitly “forgotten”, “absent” not worthy of a mention. There were those, who said they were there, and claim the Pope appeared not to be his normal self, not full of pep but, reserved and even depressed.
Who did have pep?
The Vatican security had pep. The actions of the so-called Vatican police on Oct. 12 and 13 harassed Fr Gruner who was in Rome, showed lots of unusual pep to a little old priest. Ask yourself, “Would the new Pope had permitted this, if he knew?”
Call it what you will, the backdrop of the Vatican is that, despite a new Pope, one even called a Marian Pope in certain circles, despite the fact cardinals Bertone or Sodano were not officially Sec. of State anymore, the circumstances and events of people, by people, for the people, steered away from “faith in and the favor of” Our Blessed Mother.
