First Saturday of the Month
Pope John Paul II on why Our Immaculate Queen of Mercy came to Fatima in Portugal: "Can the Mother, Who with all the force of the love that She fosters in the Holy Spirit and Who DESIRES EVERYONE'S SALVATION, can She remain silent when SHE SEES THE VERY BASES OF HER CHILDREN'S SALVATION UNDERMINED? No, She cannot remain silent."
Our eternal salvation lies in our union with God. This consists our true and perfect happiness - the secure possession for all eternity of our supreme Good Who Is God alone ("Solo Dios basta!" - "God alone suffices!" as the Mother of Carmelite Reform, St. Teresa of Jesus, puts it). But this is undermined by rejection of, resistance to, or adulteration of the truths proposed by the Holy Church in her Faith for God said: I will espouse thee to Me in Faith (Osee 2.20) [cf., "Catechetical Instructions of St. Thomas Aquinas"].
Before Fatima, the Queen of Heaven spoke to Melanie Calvat and Maximin Giraud in France and what She said would never be nice to Catholics of the "New Orientation" of Vatican II who profess 'loyalty-to-the-Pope-no matter-what'*: "Rome will loose the Faith" (in the original 1879 edition of "Our Lady's Apocalypse: the Message of Our Lady of La Salette" published with the Imprimatur of the Bishop of Lecce). Again, in Fatima (1917): "[Not in Rome will] the dogma of the Faith... always be preserved, etc [here then follows the Third Part of the Great Secret which, logically, gives details also as to why the dogma of the Faith will not be always preserved in Rome starting in the 1960s]." And, finally (this was in the 1940s), in Her instruction to Sr. Lucia, C.D. to have the entire text of the Third Part of the Great Secret of Fatima revealed the earliest in 1960 - doubtless, to persuade the Holy Father in Rome to abandon his 'updating' of the Church through Vatican II (1962-1965) where wolves in sheep's clothing were granted their hour of victory (cf., Fr. Wiltgen, SVD, "The Rhine Flows Into the Tiber") adopting the "New Catholic Orientation" (an attempt to synthesize Catholic principles and the 1789 Masonic principles - reconciliation of two contradictories, cf., the marriage of 'godliness' and ungodliness in Neo-Catholicism in our post "Bad Romance" and the cohabitation of the true God of our Sacred Catholic Tradition with the idol of the New 'Catholic Theology' on a "Summorum Pontificum" table in our post "The Ultimate Delusion of Vatican II 'Catholicism'").

The Queen of Heaven however would never teach us disobedience or lead us to sedevacantism (cf, our post "Against Sedevacantism" Part I and Part II) in the face of our sick head (Is. 1.5) himself being responsible for this undermining of the Faith: "A sentiment of confusion... spreading... also with the most qualified, who exercise the greatest authority," admitted Pope Paul VI (Discourse of December 3, 1969), cf., our post "Our Lady and the Diabolical Campaign". When Peter fails and wanders far away from the foot of the Cross, there is Catholic Resistance.
