Our Blessed Mother Mary Most Holy Ever Virgin
 gave this Message,     'The Third SECRET
and
Almighty GOD worked the  Solar Miracle 
at Fatima, on
October 13, 1917 to prove its Validity !
The MOTHER OF GOD revealed
a special Message to Lucy, which states in particular

"No longer does order reign anywhere.  Even in the highest places Satan reigns and directs the course of events.

Satan will succeed in infiltrating into
the highest positions in The Church.

Satan will succeed in sowing confusion in the minds of scientists who will design weapons  that can DESTROY great portions of mankind in a FEW MINUTESSatan will gain hold of heads of nations and will cause these destructive WEAPONS to be mass produced.."

"If mankind will not oppose these Evils,
       I will be obliged to let fall
            My SON's ARM.

If the chief rulers of the world and of
The Church will not actively oppose
                       these Evils,


   I will ask GOD My FATHER
   to visit His JUSTICE upon mankind


Then will GOD PUNISH mankind even more severely and harshly than He did
at
the time of the GREAT DELUGE.


  The great and powerful will PERISH 
      along with the lowly and weak."


  A TIME of very SEVERE TRIAL is also 
          coming
for The CHURCH.

    Cardinals will
oppose Cardinals
  and Bishops will oppose Bishops .


Satan will enter into their very midst.
In ROME also, there will occur great CHANGES.  What is ROTTEN will FALL, and what FALLS must not be retained

The CHURCH
will be obscured,
and all the world will be thrown into 
      GREAT
CONFUSION
."






 

 
 "The GREAT, GREAT WAR 
     will come in the second half of the  
                  twentieth century.

       




    
   FIRE  and  SMOKE 
         will FALL from
Heaven,

 
  and the WATERS of the Ocean
             will turn to STEAM,
throwing their FOAM to the very SKY

   
     Whatever is standing will be 

            OVERTURNED
.



 MILLIONS of people will  DIE




Those surviving will
ENVY the DEAD.  DISTRESSMISERY,  and  DESOLATION WILL BE FOUND
THE WORLD OVER."




    
"The TIME is drawing nearer,
      and the ABYSS is ever deepening.
 
 
 
    There will be
NO ESCAPE:
  the good will DIE with the WICKED,
              the great with the lowly,
 the Princes of The Church with the faithful, 
 the rulers of the nations with their people. 



   DEATH
 
will REIGN
everywhere,
   raised to triumph by erring men,
  the helpers of Satan who will be
  the MASTERS of the Earth.



These EVILS will come at a time when no
one
expects it:  nevertheless it must come as
PUNISHMENT and REVENGE  in Accordance with GOD'S PLAN."



     "The AGE of Ages is coming,
         the END of all  ENDS 
    if mankind will NOT REPENT
    and BE CONVERTED,

 and if this Conversion does not come from the rulers of the world and of The Church



WOE
and greater WOE
to mankind
 if  CONVERSION  does not occur."

 

   "Later, however, those who survive
                   
these TRIALS,
                 if they will REPENT,
               and will call upon GOD
         in submission to His Will

      and become true followers of
     JESUS CHRIST, My SON,
           I will gather them
   and become their INTERCESSOR.


    

 But WOE and more WOE
  if that conversion does not occur.

 
      

        GO
My child,
     and  ANNOUNCE  IT;

               I will assist you."




 




GOD's ANGEL of PEACE Apparitions

In the spring of 1916, the three young Portugese shepherds, Lucy dos Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto,
led their sheep to graze on a hill called the Cabeco.

Rain began to fall, so the children found a place on the hillside to serve as shelter...
eating lunch, praying the Rosary and
playing games.

Lucy was then only nine years old, Francisco was eight, and Jacinta was six.
  As they were playing, a strong wind suddenly blew,
shaking the trees, and the children saw a figure approaching above the olive trees.

Lucy described the figure as having  "the appearance of a young man of fourteen or fifteen, whiter than SNOW, which the sun rendered transparent as if it were of crystal, and of great BEAUTY."

We were surprised and half absorbed.
We did not say a word.  While coming closer
to us, the
Angel said:
 

 "Do not fear!  I am the Angel of Peace.
                     Pray with me."


And kneeling on the earth, he bent his forehead to the ground.  Prompted by a supernatural movement, we imitated him
and repeated the words which we heard him pronounce:

       
"My GOD, I believe in Thee,
          I adore Thee, I hope in Thee
                and I love Thee.  

   
           I ask pardon for all those
          who do not believe in Thee,
               do not adore Thee,
            do not hope in Thee
          and do not love Thee."


'Having repeated that prayer three times,
 he got up again and said to us: 

               
"Pray in this way
         The Hearts of Jesus and Mary
          are attentive to the voice of
                your supplications." 
 

   
And he disappeared.'   Lucy recalled:


 'The supernatural atmosphere which enveloped us was so intense that, during a long moment, we barely realized the fact of our own existence.  We remained in the position in which the Angel had left us,
always repeating the same prayer
.

The PRESENCE of GOD made itself felt
in such an intense and intimate manner
,
that we did not dare even to speak any longer among ourselves.  The next day, we still felt our spirit enveloped in this atmosphere
which only disappeared very slowly.'


The
  second   Apparition of the Angel
took place during the summer of 1916
.

While the children were playing around their favorite well, the ANGEL suddenly appeared.

    "What are you doing?  he asked.
           PRAY a great deal!
 
The Holy Hearts of JESUS and MARY 
     have designs of Mercy on you.

     OFFER unceasingly PRAYERS
     and SACRIFICE yourselves
      to
The MOST HIGH."


Lucy asked the ANGEL how they were to make sacrifices.  The Angel replied:

     "Make of everything you can
   a sacrifice and offer it to GOD
as an Act of Reparation for the SINS 
      by which He is OFFENDED,
           and in supplication
    for the conversion of sinners
.

   In this way, you will draw Peace
             upon your country.
 
    I am its GUARDIAN ANGEL,
      the Angel of Portugal.



   Above all, accept and bear with  
   submission
the sufferings
   which The Lord will send you."


Lucy comments, 'Those words of the Angel engraved themselves in our spirit, as a LIGHT which made us understand  Who GOD is,
how much He loves us and wants to be loved by us, the value of sacrifice 
    and how pleasing it is to Him,
    and that out of respect for it,
    GOD converts sinners." 


In the autumn of the 1916, the children took their sheep to the Cabeco, the place of the first Apparition.  They were reciting the prayer the Angel had taught them when above them an unknown LIGHT appeared.

Lucy relates, "We got up again to see what was happening, and we saw the Angel again, who had in his left hand
a Chalice over which was suspended
a HOST, from which some Drops of BLOOD fell into the Chalice."

Leaving the Chalice and the HOST suspended in the air, he prostrated himself down to the earth near the children and repeated three times this prayer:

  "Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son,
   and Holy Ghost, I adore You
   profoundly, and I offer You the
   Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul
   and Divinity of JESUS CHRIST,
   present in the Tabernacles of the
   world, in Reparation for the 
   OUTRAGES, SACRILEGES and

   INDIFFERENCES by which He,
   Himself is OFFENDED.


And I draw upon the Infinite MERITS of  The Most  SACRED HEART of JESUS and of
The Immaculate HEART of MARY,
that You might
convert poor SINNERS."

Then, getting up, the ANGEL took the Chalice and HOSTHe gave Lucy the SACRED HOST on the tongue.

Then while giving The
Precious BLOOD from the Chalice to Francisco and Jacinta, he said:

   
"EAT and DRINK The BODY and
    BLOOD
of  JESUS CHRIST,

horribly outraged by ungrateful men
.
    Make REPARATION for their
 CRIMES and CONSOLE your GOD."

Then, prostrating himself on the ground he repeated with the children three times the same prayer:

 "Most HOLY Trinity, etc.., then 
                                     disappeared.'


This final Apparition of the Angel was clearly the summit of the three, as the children were Graced to see
The PRECIOUS BLOOD of Our LORD
fall from the SACRED HOST into the 
     CHALICE
, and then receive
 Holy Communion
from the Angel.

They received Jesus in the KNEELING position, and the SACRED HOST was given on the TONGUE.
This,
with the prayers,
prepared them for the coming APPARITIONS of
        The
QUEEN OF HEAVEN
     
The BLESSED VIRGIN MARY,
        
Our LADY of FATIMA
      the following spring, 1917.


The MOTHER OF GOD appeared six times to the three shepherd children near FATIMA, Portugal
between May 13th and October 13th, 1917
She
said:

 
"If MY requests are granted...
         there will be PEACE."

  "If My requests are not granted, 
    RUSSIA
will spread its ERRORS 
    throughout the world,
    raising up  WARS  and
    PERSECUTIONS against
    The CHURCH.

  The good will be MARTYRED,
  the Holy Father will suffer much 
  and various nations will be
  ANNIHILATED."
                        
Our Lady of Fatima


In the Apparition
of July 13, 1917, Our Lady WARNED that if we
didn't
STOP OFFENDING GOD
                 by our SINS,
GOD would PUNISH the world,

using RUSSIA as the SCOURGING INSTRUMENT of CHASTISEMENT,

"by means of WAR, HUNGER and 
 PERSECUTION
 
of The Church
       and of the Holy Father".


She
told
the children that

  "to PREVENT this, I shall come
                 to ASK for

the CONSECRATION of RUSSIA 
 to  My IMMACULATE HEART".










True to Her words
, Our Lady appeared to now Sister Lucy on June 13, 1929 at TUY, Spain, when in a great and sublime VISION representing
     The BLESSED TRINITY
,
She announced that
 

   "the MOMENT has come
 for GOD to ask the Holy Father
 to make, in UNION with ALL the 
          Bishops of the world
,
 the CONSECRATION of RUSSIA
 to MY IMMACULATE HEART.

 By this means, He promises to     
               save
Russia."




The LORD expected swift obedience
, however, the pastors of the Church chose to DELAY and,
on August 19, 1931, Our LORD Himself appeared to Sister Lucy
in Rianjo, Spain
and expressed
His displeasure,
saying

"make it known to My ministers that, given they follow the example of the King of France in  DELAYING  the execution  of MY COMMAND, they will follow him also into misfortune."



Our Lord's  WARNING
  is grave indeed;
   referring to His command
  
through St. Margaret Mary 
   Alacoque
, to the King of France


 that he consecrate his nation to 
   The Sacred Heart
of Jesus




The King chose to ignore the Command and thus condemned
his dynasty and throne to the horrors of REVOLUTION,
 CHAOS and the GUILLOTINE!



       
To this day (2014) this
        'CONSECRATION'

       HAS NOT BEEN DONE !
  PRAY TIRELESSLY that it will be 
    done
or we are all
DOOMED.



In response to Sister Lucy's question WHY Our Lord would not convert Russia without the Holy Father Consecrating that nation
  to His Mother's Immaculate Heart,
 
OUR LORD replied:

  "Because I want My whole Church
    to acknowledge that Consecration
                as a TRIUMPH of
 
The IMMACULATE HEART of MARY

so that it may extend its Cult later and 
           put the DEVOTION of
           
The Immaculate Heart 
           beside the DEVOTION to
            My Sacred Heart ."






On the 13th of May, 1917, after Sunday morning MASS, the three shepherd children chose to lead their sheep to a property called Cova de Iria.  After eating their meal at noon and praying the Rosary, the children began to play SUDDENLY they saw a kind of LIGHTNING, making them believe that a   
 STORM 
was approaching, and they began
to
descend the Hill to make for home.
When about half-way down the slope there was another FLASH of LIGHT,

and
a LADY appeared above a holm-oak treeLucy says that the LADY was
"all dressed in WHITE, more brilliant than the SUN, radiating a LIGHT clearer and more intense than a CRYSTAL Glass  filled with clear water pierced by the most BURNING RAYS of the SUN."
The children stopped and found themselves in the LIGHT that emanated from HER.
Lucy describes the Apparition in this way:

'
Then Our Lady said to us:

  "Do not be afraid I will do you no harm." 

   'Where is Your Grace from?'
 
I asked Her.

             "I am of HEAVEN."
  
    'What does Your Grace want of me?'

  "I have come to ask you to come here
       for SIX MONTHS in succession,
      on the 13th day, at this same hour.


            Later on, I will tell you
         Who I am and what I want.
        Afterwards, I will return here
              yet a seventh time."



'Shall I go to Heaven too?'  "Yes, you will."  'And Jacinta?'   "Also."   'And Francisco?'  
         "Also, but he will have to say
                     many
Rosaries."


'I remembered then to ask about two girls who had died recently.  They were friends of mine and they used to come to my home to learn weaving with my eldest sister.

   'Is Maria des Neves already in Heaven?'  
  "Yes, she is."
   It seems to me that she was about 16 years old.  'And Amelia?'
         "She will be in Purgatory
          until the End of the world."


   It seems to me that she must have been 
          between 18 and 20 years old
.


                "Are you willing to
             offer yourselves to GOD
             to bear all the suffering
             He
wants to send you,
             as an Act of Reparation for
 the SINS by which
He is OFFENDED
 and for the
conversion of sinners?"

               'Yes, we are willing.' 
      
        "You are then going to have
  much to suffer, but the Grace of GOD
              will be your comfort."


'It was in pronouncing those last words (the Grace of GOD, etc.) that Our Lady opened Her Hands for the first time, and communicated to us, as by a reflection which emanated from them, a LIGHT so intense that, penetrating our heart and even to the depths of our soul, it made us see ourselves in GOD, Who was this LIGHT, more clearly than we see ourselves in the best mirrors.

Then, moved by an interior impulse which was communicated to us, we fell on our knees and said repeatedly:

            'O Most Holy Trinity,
             I adore Thee, My GOD,
             my GOD, I love Thee
        in The Most Holy Sacrament.'


The first moments passed,
and Our Lady added:

    
"Recite the ROSARY every day
   in order to obtain peace for the world
         and the end of the WAR."


 'Can you tell me whether the War will still
      last a long time, or will it soon
end?'

             "I cannot tell you yet,
   as I have not told you what I want."


      'Then She began to rise serenely,
       going up towards the east until She  
  disappeared
in the immensity of the SKY.'

During the Apparitions, each child's part was distinct:  Lucy was the only one who spoke to Our Lady; Jacinta saw and heard Her but did not speak; and Francisco saw Her but could not hear Her, and had to be told afterward what She said. 
Lucy explains the experience: 

'The Apparition of Our Lady came once again to plunge us into the Supernatural, but in a much milder manner [than the Apparitions of the Angel].  Instead of this annihilation in the
Divine Presence, which prostrated us, even physically, this last Apparition left us a Peace, an expansive JOY which prevented us from speaking afterwards about what had happened.'


Little Jacinta, however, could not contain her JOY for long and, prompted by a special grace, immediately gave an enthusiastic account of the Apparition to her parents.
As a result,
the NEWS spread quickly.
