    [Catholic Caucus] Bishop's Blog / An important prayer for our timeThe attached image is called "Amazing Lights", it seems especially appropriate as we celebrate the 104th Anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady at Fatima in 1917. Interestingly these amazing lights are especially active as we celebrate this important date. In 1910 only a few years before the Miracles at Fatima, which also carried dire warnings for humanity, Pope St. Pius X issued the "Oath Against Modernism" printed here.“I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly...

    13th October 1917 Fatima, Portugal Estimates of the number of people present range from 30,000 and 40,000, by Avelino de Almeida writing for the Portuguese newspaper O Século,[15] to 100,000, estimated by lawyer Dr. José Almeida Garrett, the son of a professor of natural sciences at the University of Coimbra.[16][17] Various claims have been made as to what actually happened during the event. According to many witnesses, after a period of rain, the dark clouds broke and the Sun appeared as an opaque, spinning disc in the sky. It was said to be significantly duller than normal, and to cast...

    Archbishop Viganò: Church of Council Realises Masonic Plan, Prepares Advent of AntichristArchbishop Carlo Maria Viganò doesn't believe that the Vatican published the third secret of Fatima completely in 2000.Viganò told DiesIrae that those who saw the secret before its publication, said that it is about the Church’s apostasy which doesn't appear in the official version.He blames the Cardinals Sodano and Bertone for this, and strangely passes over the fact that Cardinal Ratzinger participated in the publication and even wrote the secret’s official interpretation.Viganò warns of attacks on the priesthood like the introduction of deaconesses, abolishing celibacy, and blurring the difference...

    New film highlights the enduring message of Our Lady. Fatima is a beautiful, moving film. Who can resist a story about a Mother come from heaven to help a straying world and tell her prodigal children exactly how and why they need to get back to their Father to bring peace? While the Blessed Mother’s appearance at Fatima and the “Miracle of the Sun” happened 103 years ago and since then has become known to tens of millions of people, the film’s appeal stretches across boundaries. Fatima devotees, nominal Catholics, non-Catholics and those who aren’t religiously oriented will find something...

    What we know of Our Lady of Fatima’s ‘3rd secret’ appears to be unfolding in Church today: priest August 15, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Father Frank Unterhalt, a German diocesan priest and speaker of a group of faithful priests called Communio veritatis, has written an article about the current crisis in the Catholic Church and linking it back to the message of Our Lady of Fatima. He quotes Cardinal Ciappi, a theologian of the Papal House from 1955 to 1989, who stated in 1955: “In the Third Secret it is predicted, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church...

    For the last 74 years, one of the most recognizable royal crowns in the world is the one worn by Our Lady of Fatima at her shrine in Portugal. Pilgrims in Fatima can see this crown on the original image of Our Lady of Fatima during the anniversaries of the apparitions and other great celebrations. Her canonical coronation took place in Fatima on May 13, 1946, when Venerable Pope Pius XII sent Cardinal Benedetto Masella, his pontifical legate, to personally preside over this coronation of Our Lady of Fatima, Queen of Peace and of the World, as Pius XII named...

    [Catholic Caucus] Viganò Vindicates Traditionalists and “Fatimists” Since the publication of his testimony concerning Theodore McCarrick and the widespread cover-up of the latter’s crimes, “beginning in the Roman Curia” and including Pope Francis himself (Aug. 2018), Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former apostolic nuncio to the United States (2011-2016), has exhibited an astounding transformation.Less than two years ago, he was simply a retired Vatican diplomat, one who easily could have chosen to live out his retirement years in peace, comfort, and anonymity. Instead, not only did he choose to expose “the homosexual current” among the Church’s hierarchy – those prelates bent...

    I just wanted to get some info. on this group and its directors: Robert Ritchie and John Horvat II. I've been getting mail from them for about 20 years. I don't know how they can afford to give out free books and rosaries, etc. and how they afford the big banners for their 20,000 rosary rallies on the 2nd Saturday of October.  I remember reading some negative comments on the FR many years ago stating that they recruit boys for their school and they don't wind up going into the seminary.  I see them at the March for Life every...

    [Catholic Caucus] Fatima’s Angel of Peace and the Need for Eucharistic Reparation A Crisis of Faith Earlier this week, Pew Research Center summarized their findings about U.S. adult Catholics and belief in transubstantiation and the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist as follows: Transubstantiation – the idea that during Mass, the bread and wine used for Communion become the body and blood of Jesus Christ – is central to the Catholic faith. Indeed, the Catholic Church teaches that “the Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’”But a new Pew Research Center survey finds that most self-described Catholics don’t believe this...

Facial Recognition Experts prove Novus Ordo Vatican’s “Sister Lucy of Fatima” was an Impostor Ladies and gentlemen, this is big news: A team of professional facial recognition experts has concluded a scientific investigation into the question of whether Sister Lucia dos Santos of Fatima, one of the three children to whom Our Lady appeared in 1917, is in fact the same woman whom the Vatican paraded around as an adherent of Vatican II and the conciliar “popes” from 1958 until her own death in 2005. The results are now in and can be summarized in two...

    In the mid 1800’s there lived in Paris a good woman who, after her husband died, was left destitute. The widow had an only son, Hubald, who was her pride and joy. Worn down by poverty, sacrifice, and worry, she became critically ill. Calling her son to her bedside she said, “Hubald, son, I am about to die. I would like to make a last will.” “Mother,” remonstrated the lad, “We’ve never had less; what can you possibly leave me?” “I have a treasure to leave you,” said his dying mother, “Reach under my pillow.” Doing so, Hubald pulled out...

    Now We Know Why Pope Francis Destroyed the Pontifical Academy for Life: New Appointee Declares Contraception Can Be a Duty by Christopher A. Ferrara January 13, 2018 It was always obvious why Pope Francis destroyed John Paul II’s Pontifical Academy for Life by sacking its entire membership of 172 persons, ordering the rewriting of its statutes and abolishing the pro-life oath that members were once required to take.  The plan was to convert the Pontifical Academy for Life into a vehicle for furthering his incredible program, now underway, of attempting to undermine the Church’s teaching on the intrinsic evil of...

    Catholic World Report has recently published an interview with Kevin Symonds, author of On the Third Part of the Secret of Fatima (En Route Books and Media, 2017). Symonds, who is a friend of the World Apostolate of Fatima (the former Blue Army and “official” Vatican mouthpiece), debated Christopher Ferrara last month at the Angelus Press Conference.I wasn’t present for the debate, but based on the content of the CWR interview, I am rather certain that Mr. Ferrara filleted his opponent’s arguments with ease.In any case, I look forward to Mr. Ferrara’s response to the interview, which presumably will come...

Charles Pope • October 24, 2017 • On at least two different occasions, Sr. Lucia gave the following instruction to the crowd at Fatima: “Close your umbrellas. Our Lady is coming!” In the pictures of the throngs gathered on the 13th of each month in Fatima, one can often see umbrellas. They were sometimes used to shield people from the rain, but even more often to provide shade from the strong sunlight.“Close your umbrellas” isn’t exactly one of the more famous aspects of the message of Fatima. However,...

Instead of repeating basic details of the Miracle that Our Lady had promised in July saying, in October I will tell you who I am and what I want. I will then perform a miracle so that all may believe, and in August repeated, In the last month I...
