    [Catholic Caucus] Was Benedict XVI the “Holy Father” of the Third Secret?The Third Secret in Light of Benedict’s PassingWith the passing of Pope Benedict XVI on December 31, 2022, one could wonder how his life and death fits into the Fatima prophecies. The most obvious question is whether or not he was the “Holy Father” of the Third Secret. If you were looking for a spectacular, literal fulfillment of the vision of the Third Secret, you might not think so. However, prophetic visions are often not fulfilled in the literal sense and rarely understood until after their fulfillment. Most of...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Consecration of Russia Was InvalidEditor’s note: as with our SSPX Debate, we will consider submissions on this topic from multiple perspectives within the Traditionalist view point, according to our editorial stance. False hopes are more dangerous than fears. – J. R. R. TolkienAs tensions escalate between Russia and the United States over war in Ukraine, heated opinion among traditional Catholics is split fairly evenly on whether the latest Fatima Consecration finally fulfilled the request proclaimed by Our Lady in 1917, and again in 1929.The only way to answer this question definitively is to 1) compare what happened...

    It’s Time to End the Church’s Ravening Wolves Problem When the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the children of Fatima over one hundred years ago, there were many problems in the world, but rampant heresy within the Church was not one of them. Whereas today almost the entire Church hierarchy has at least tacitly accepted the proliferation of the most baneful lies to ever be preached from Catholic pulpits — that all Protestant religions please God; that hell might be empty; and that all souls may go to heaven — Our Lady of Fatima appeared at a time when...

    1. Pope Francis Mentions Russia by Name In the text of the consecration prayer provided by the Vatican to all the Catholic bishops of the world, Russia is specifically mentioned by name. 2. It Affirms that Mary Always Leads to Jesus, the Prince of Peace The consecration is full of biblical references to Mary’s role as an intercessor. 3. Pope Francis Mentions Nuclear Weapons The Pope will invoke Mary by many different titles, including Star of the Sea, Ark of the New Covenant, Queen of Heaven, and Queen of Peace in invoking her intercession for peace in the world at...

    [Catholic Caucus] Pope Francis courting catastrophe by fudging wording on Fatima consecrationThe pontiff indicated that he will consecrate 'humanity' and not just Russia. Mon Mar 21, 2022 - 7:12 pm EDT (LifeSiteNews) — The requests of Our Lady of Fatima for the consecration of Russia were very specific. In at least eight attempts over the last nearly 100 years, Popes have failed to do it as she explicitly requested. And for that very reason, the promised full conversion of Russia and world peace were not granted to the world.The best opportunity for the consecration of Russia has presented itself now,...

    It turns out moving your thumb along a decade of rosary beads feels a lot like scrolling through a news feed. I have discovered this as I reach more and more for my rosary these days, amid the flood of horrific images and stories of Russia’s onslaught in Ukraine—most recently, the bombing of a maternity hospital in Mariupol. Each day’s news brings fresh feelings of incredulity, anger and helplessness that gnaw at me long after I set down my phone and tend to my two young sons. I have found that praying the rosary gives somewhere for my anxiety to...

    Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, 25 March, during the Celebration of Penance that he will preside over at 5pm in St Peter's Basilica. The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, said in a statement: “The same act, on the same day, will be performed in Fatima by Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, papal almoner,” who is being sent there by the Pope. The day of the Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord was chosen for the consecration.

    “Just as Kennedy could not accept missiles in Cuba from the ex Soviet Union, so Putin cannot accept missiles (and NATO bases) in the Ukraine from the United States. It’s the same exact thing. So now judge for yourself who is provoking the war without letting yourself being influenced by the American propaganda” – Samuel Col0mbo In the Old Testament, when Israel no longer obeyed God, God used as an instrument a pagan nation to punish and bring back Israel to obedience to God. At Fatima we were told that Russia will be God’s instrument to punish the world and...

    In this episode of the Remnant Underground, Michael J. Matt excoriates the truly preposterous development in Rome whereby the increasingly intolerant and angry Pope Francis choses Christmas 2021, in the middle of a pandemic, to crack down on one of the few growing movements within the Catholic Church today. As Catholics increasingly abandon the out-of-touch Church of Accompaniment, plagued as it is by sexual abuse and financial scandals at the highest levels, Francis turns his sights on faithful Catholics whose only “crime” is their love and devotion to the traditional liturgy and sacraments. A pope who marketed himself on being...

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...

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...

    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...

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...
