[Russia] will spread her errors in the world
I can think of these errors most directly associated with Russia and on the rise in the West:
- The notion that the economic man takes priority over the spiritual man. In Russia that was the industrialization combined with persecution of the Church; in the West we see global economy demolishing the national culture and rising hostility to religion
- The notion that the collective takes priority over the individual, the fundamental socialist principle that Russia instilled through class consciousness and the modern West instills through the worship of democracy.
- The notion that governments change men through laws as opposed to God changing men through conversion of the heart. The legal becomes the good. Russia made looting of the well-to-do legal and proclaimed it good. We make killing of the unborn and the elderly legal and proclaim it good.

The visionary explained that history witnessed "the outbreak of an atheist war against the faith, against God and against the People of God. A war that sought to exterminate Judaism from which Jesus Christ, the Virgin and the Apostles came, who transmitted to us the Word of God and the gift of faith, hope and charity, a people chosen by God, chosen from the beginning: 'salvation comes from the Jews.'"
The similarities between this statement and the Holy Father's statements at Auchswitz are quite remarkable.
Some inscriptions are pointed reminders. There is one in Hebrew. The rulers of the Third Reich wanted to crush the entire Jewish people, to cancel it from the register of the peoples of the earth. Thus the words of the Psalm: "We are being killed, accounted as sheep for the slaughter" were fulfilled in a terrifying way. Deep down, those vicious criminals, by wiping out this people, wanted to kill the God who called Abraham, who spoke on Sinai and laid down principles to serve as a guide for mankind, principles that are eternally valid. If this people, by its very existence, was a witness to the God who spoke to humanity and took us to himself, then that God finally had to die and power had to belong to man alone -- to those men, who thought that by force they had made themselves masters of the world. By destroying Israel, they ultimately wanted to tear up the taproot of the Christian faith and to replace it with a faith of their own invention: faith in the rule of man, the rule of the powerful.

Actually, the "message" is to repent, to do the duties of our state of life, to meditate on the "mysteries of the rosary" (i.e. story of Christ and Mary's lives, and how they relate to our lives in Christ), to pray every day (i.e. the rosary, the prayer of the poor who can't read but love Jesus) and to go to extra masses in reparation for sins of unbelief.
All the rest is "fun" but not essential
