Fatima Perspectives #1374
“The war [World War I] is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its sins, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.
“To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will 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.”
Thus did Our Lady warn the Church and the world at Fatima on July 13, 1917. And so it has come to pass, the consecration never having been done as She requested. Russia has spread her errors throughout the world with the consequences that the Virgin of Fatima predicted — save for that ultimate annihilation of nations we have yet to see, but which is evidently foretold in the vision published by the Vatican on June 26, 2000 wherein a future Pope is executed by soldiers outside a devastated city filled with the dead. Withheld to this day, but surely in existence, is the Virgin’s explanation of that vision.
In the aftermath of World War II, Russia’s errors spread throughout all of Eastern Europe and Latin America, where to this day the socialist dictators with whom Pope Francis enjoys such warm relations still plague the people on whose backs they rose to power. But following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the single greatest threat posed by the progeny of Russia’s errors is, of course, Communist China.
And it is precisely Communist China to which Francis bends the papal knee. “China,” writes Antonio Socci, is “perilously near.” Not near in terms of geographical distance (Beijing being some 5,000 miles from Rome) but rather in terms of the threat that her existence poses to the Church and the peace of the world. “The White House,” Socci observes, “has made the Western world understand that the confrontation with China represents the problem of the next decades (and the recent accord on tariffs has certainly not diminished that epochal problem).”
And yet Rome evinces what Socci calls a “pro-Chinese ‘slide’… provoked by the adventurism of a South American Pope who was installed [as cardinal] during the Obama/Clinton era, who detests Trump and the West, who is uninterested in persecuted Christians and who sympathizes with regimes of the Left.” The same “slide” is seen in the new center-left coalition government of Italy that Francis and his collaborators had a hand in producing in order to topple the Salvini government.
The Italian government’s dangerous dalliance with China could be corrected with new elections that promise to restore a center-right government. But correcting the problem with the Vatican, says Socci, is “more difficult, because it would mean for Bergoglio a total rejection of his own line.” During the recent visit to the Vatican, Vice President Pence, Socci notes, discussed with the Pope the March of Life in Washington and the fate of persecuted Christians in various nations, subjects “in harmony with the pontificates of John Paul II and Benedict…” But as for Francis, Socci concludes: “Bergoglio still stands on the Obama agenda. This is a pontificate that is destabilizing for the Church, for Italy and for the West.”’
So this is where we stand in the Year of Our Lord 2020: in the midst of a pontificate that not only fails to oppose the errors of Russia as incarnated in the demonic regime in Beijing, but inclines the Church toward them as the butchers of Beijing persecute the faithful Catholics of the Underground Church.
In nine more years, it will be the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima’s request (at Tuy, Spain) for the Consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart. On the 100th anniversary of Our Lord’s unfulfilled request for the public Consecration of France to His Immaculate Heart, June 17, 1789 — the very Feast of the Sacred Heart — the Third Estate proclaimed itself a National Assembly, stripping King Louis XVI of his legislative power. Louis attempted the consecration of France during his imprisonment, but his private act was too little too late, and his life ended on the guillotine while the annihilation of Catholic France was underway.
What will one see in the world nine years from now? Will it be the post-apocalyptic scenario depicted in the vision of the Third Secret? Or will a Pope who inclines toward Heaven, not Beijing, avert that global chastisement by doing at long last what Our Lady requested?
Only God knows.
