Our Lady of Fatima, Pray for Us

"You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world”.

"...a period of peace will be granted to the world." Political scientists who specialize in war claim that the last 65 years have been an unprecedented period of peace among the great powers. There have been plenty of post-colonial wars (including the 90s post Soviet conflicts), but the incidents of war are actually down across the board (see the Correlates of War data set). I know it doesn't seem like it in our information age/globalized world, but we have had an unusual period of peace relative to recorded history.

So in other words, I think our time is running out before we have another great power war. We have had our period of peace and look what we've done with it...
