Oh boy ...
Bump for later. Thank you.
Why do you exclaim in such a way.
Have you read these predictions? Are you aware of what is happening in the world?
Please notify me via FReepmail if you would like to be added to or taken off the Saint of the Day Ping List.
I wont comment any more than to say I beleive this isn’t from God, period.
The Vatican has approved it and many of the predictions have come true, although Russia isn’t fully converted. We still need to pray for that.
FYI, the Vatican goes through a thorough study of apparitions to prove that they are either false or true. Our Lady of Fatima has been approved.
If I were you I would read some of the Catholic books on it, an excllent one is “In Her Own Words to the Nuclear Age” — basically the memoirs of Sister Lucia.

Nothing about luck here. It’s called faith.

The Blessed Virgin Mary is venerated under this title following apparitions to three shephard children in Portugal in 1917. The message of Fatima includes a call to conversion of heart, repentance from sin and a dedication to the Blessed Virgin Mary, shown especially by praying the Rosary.

From the Common of the Blessed Virgin Mary
First Reading: Isaiah 61:9-11
Their descendants shall be known among the nations, and their offspring in the midst of the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are a people whom the Lord has blessed.
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall exult in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks Himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Gospel Reading: Luke 11:27-28
As Jesus said this, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, "Blessed is the womb that bore You, and the breasts that You sucked!" But He said, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!"
THE MESSAGE OF FATIMA, Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, June 26, 2000 (Link to Vatican Website)
I forgot one thing in that post. The last words of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Bible are “Do whatever he tells you.”
Why do you think that Catholics don’t believe in Jesus Christ? The Blessed Virgin Mary is silent after those instructions — Catholics are focused on Christ!
Everything about Mary points to Christ.
Jesus: I am the way, the truth and the light. Nobody comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6)
There was a great movie about this that I saw years ago. I still remember the scene about the sun.
When God sends Mary (or another saint, or an angel) on a mission to do His will here on earth in our own day, the same things apply. I marvel at how people can come to the conclusion that such things can't be from God, as if God always acts directly in mediating our affairs. Scriptural examples of His use of secondary intermediaries abound. Quoting John 14:6 is entirely irrelevant. Heeding Mary, when she is sent to us on a "mission from God," is coming to the Father through Jesus.
No. I’m not.
Then address, specifically, my contention about secondary intermediaries. Do they, or do they not, act under God’s command, and therefore have a will at one with His? If they do, then ... what is your point? If they are sent under God’s auspices, then it should be clear that they act with a view of bringing people to Him, not away from Him.
Your quoting of John 14:6 puts obvious Scriptural episodes of divinely-sanctioned mediation and your particular take on “coming to Jesus” in a rather startling - and completely unnecessary - opposition.
Don’t assume that everything that claims to be sent by God really is my friend.
