Second Fatima Message: Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary


Feast of St. Anthony of Padua
Doctor of the Church, "Terror of heretics", "The Wonder Worker", Patron of Portugal

This day, ninety-five years ago, Our Immaculate Mother came again to Fatima as She promised to Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta on May 13. The Blessed Mother told Lucia:

"Jesus... wants to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. To whoever embraces this devotion I promise salvation: these souls shall be dear to God, as flowers placed by Me to adorn His throne.

Do you suffer a great deal? Don't lose heart. I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God."

"Jesus wants to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart...," that is, as one of the last remedies* for the world: "God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the last two** remedies, which signify that there will be no others***" (Sr. Lucia of the Immaculate Heart, C.D., in The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III, pp. 336-339, 710).
* This does not mean however that Our Blessed Mother is replacing the traditional Sacraments, most especially the Sacraments of Penance and the Holy Eucharist, instituted by Her Divine Son. "Traditional Sacraments", that is, the Sacraments administered according to the Traditional Rite and not according to the "useless" (cf., Fr. Gabriel Amorth, Chief Exorcist at the Vatican, on the New Rite of Exorcism for example in our post "Our Lady and the Diabolical Campaign") Novus Ordo (the Vatican II New 'Catholic Order') Rite.

** They are therefore in addition to the traditional Sacramental life of a truly devout Christian.

*** This denies the claim of the "Divine Mercy Devotion" (cf., "The Problem with the 'Divine Mercy Devotion'").

"To whomever embraces this devotion I promise salvation..." This does not preclude even those who are the most miserable of sinners - those who are in the bondage of the devil through the vice of lust (impurity and homosexuality); they must, however, have recourse first to the traditional Sacrament of Penance where, at the Confessional, they will find grace with God: their sins washed away by the Most Sacred and Precious Blood of the Crucified; and, a Traditional Catholic Priest would examine the festering fatal wound of the disorder that is in them and so prescribe to them the most appropriate remedy God gives through the hands of Our Immaculate Mother and which the Church dispenses.

Salvation is in the "Blood of the Lamb"

Apocalypse XIV now unfolding (cf., our posts "The Wine of the Wrath of God" and "After Pope Benedict XVI, the 'Last' Roman Pontiff?"). The divine chastisement of world-wide conflagration (Lk. 17.29-30, cf., our post "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations") to annihilate the 'super-power' and cities and nations drunk with the wine of its immodesty, impurity, fornication, homosexuality, and blasphemies (Apoc. 14.8) is imminent - the close of our end-times period (distinct from the consummation of the world, Mt. 28.20).

They... have made them white in the Blood of the Lamb
(Apoc. 7.14) ... All things... are cleansed with Blood: and without shedding of Blood there is no remission (Heb. 9.22).

The Blood of the [Divine] Lamb can be availed of in the traditional Rite of the Sacrament of Penance (cf., our post "On Concealing Sins in Confession") and of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist (the Traditional Latin Mass). Go to our traditional Catholic Mass Centers (links on the left-side bar of this site). Flee to the mountains... (Mt. 24.16).
