Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. It is also the 100th anniversary of her first appearance to the Fatima children. She spoke of the need to repent of sin to avoid hell. Later she appeared to a Japanese sister at Akita and basically continued her message. There she said that "if men do not repent and better themselves the Father will inflict a terrible punishment
." Between 1917 and now, what has been the change? Our Lady delivered her words to a world that still was nominally Christian. That cannot be said anymore, with thousands of babies being slaughtered under cover of civil law, sexual perversion being celebrated, marriage being trivialized and God being openly scorned.
Our Lady of Akita also mentioned that the devil would infiltrate the church, setting clergy against each other. We certainly see that these days, don't we?
Please pray your Rosaries daily for God's grace of repentance. Our Lady is making abundantly clear that souls will go to hell if they don't repent and turn to God.
