Francisco and Jacinta Marto and their cousin, Lucia dos Santos, received MaryÂ’s words with simple trust and faithfully put them into practice.

    Understanding Fatima Evidence supporting the apparitions is strong, but devotion to any private revelation is not required November 1, 2015 10/21/2015 Msgr. Charles Pope Question: A friend of mine is forever mentioning Fatima. What am I, as a Catholic convert, to make of this? Am I required to accept it?— Name withheld, Austin, Texas Answer: There is probably no other prophecy so well attested and verified as that of Our Lady of Fatima. That said, the Church has never required Catholics to believe private revelations as a matter of faith. The Church, however, does hold up for the faithful certain...

    Our Lady of Fatima – Her Prophecies and Warnings Remain as Essential as Ever! Msgr. Charles Pope • October 12, 2015 • This week on October 13 and 14th I am in Fatima. Such a profound apparition occurred there, and so accurately prophetic of our times!Our Lady’s warnings of the consequences if we did not pray and convert have proven to be sadly accurate. She warned of another, more terrible war (World War II). She spoke of great lights in the sky that would serve as a final warning before the terrible war. (They appeared all over Europe just before...

    Our Lady’s Request: Pray for the Dying! R. Jared Staudt“Pray, pray very much. Make sacrifices for sinners. Many souls go to hell, because no one is willing to help them with sacrifice.”-Our Lady of Fatima, July 13, 1917Today is the anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, Portugal. It is also the anniversary of the assassination attempt on Pope St. John Paul II, when Our Lady of Fatima intervened at what seemed the moment of his death to save his life.This is fitting as Our Lady at Fatima appealed to us to assist those at the...

    This past week we celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. (And, given my mention of Fatima, you may wonder why I have Our Lady of Guadalupe pictured here, but more on that in a moment). But as for Fatima, with all the emphasis on the magnificent teaching and prophetic fulfillment of that apparition, something that has always intrigued me is that she would appear of all places in a town called Fatima. Why Fatima, a town that recalls the daughter of Mohammed?Indeed, I have often heard that Muslims hold our Blessed Mother Mary in high regard. This reverence...

    Review of The 13th Day by John Vennari In the spring of this year, I saw the riveting trailer for The 13th Day, and looked forward to its release with great anticipation. I recently viewed the movie itself. The film is good, though there are some aspects I found disappointing. The 13th Day has many fine moments. The actress who portrays Lucia’s mother is superb, and even a bit terrifying. The movie contains the best portrayal of the Miracle of the Sun I’ve seen. It is filmed in black and white, except when Our Lady brings everything to color, which...

    Do you want to offer yourselves to God, to endure all the sufferings He may allow, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended and as a supplication for the conversion of sinners? — Our Lady of Fatima ### Although Notre Dame, because of its French founding fathers and grotto, is usually associated with Our Lady of Lourdes, the above words, spoken by Our Lady of Fatima to three young shepherd children on May 13, 1917, could be taken as the rallying cry for the faithful who hope to avail on Our Lord to prevail...

    "I Am of Heaven" The First Visit, May 13, 1917 The flash of light that commenced the first apparition looked like lightning to Lucy. She told her younger companions, Francisco and Jacinta, that they should hurry home and take with them the flock of sheep they were tending, before a thunderstorm began. A second flash of light soon followed, and this time, the children suddenly saw a Woman standing on a small holm-oak, only a few feet away. She seemed to Lucy to be about 18 to 20 years old, wearing a white gown embroidered with gold. She radiated brilliant...

    “The Fourth Secret of Fatima”Mainstream Italian Author Argues Third Secret of Fatima Not Entirely RevealedSecretary of Pope John XXIII Admits There Are Two Textsby John Vennari               On November 22, 2006, Antonio Socci’s Il Quarto Segreto di Fatima (The Fourth Secret of Fatima), hit bookstores in Italy. The author, after much investigation, comes to the conclusion that the Vatican has not formally released the entire Third Secret.              The importance of this book cannot be overemphasized. Mr. Socci is a famous, mainstream Italian author and TV anchor man, not associated with any “traditionalist” group. In fact, he began the project firmly believing...

    Thursday May 13, 2004 Our Lady of Fatima Reading (Acts 15:7-21) Gospel (St. John 15:9-11) In the first reading today, we hear this debate that took place at what is known as the Council of Jerusalem as to whether or not the Gentile converts would have to become Jewish, that is, whether or not they would have to be circumcised according to the law of Moses. The real question was not only that, but also was Christianity a part of Judaism or was it something that was completely separate? We note that as the debate goes on, it is when...

    When the Supreme Court extended an injunction against the enforcement of the Child Online Protection Act (COPA), it also guaranteed the access by innocent children to on-line porn. Internet pornographers were handed a victory and the opportunity to corrupt American youth with no fines or consequences. In answer to the decision, America Needs Fatima is launching a new emergency campaign called Protect Kids from Porn. Starting in early September, the campaign has as its immediate goal the distribution of tens of thousands of protest flyers aimed toward protecting society’s most vulnerable members. Each brochure has two petitions, one addressed to...
