Just an Observation

Many have already noted that the rush to raise John XXIII, Paul VI, and John Paul II to the altars is a practical effort to "canonize the Council". May I add that it also seems to be an attempt to canonize the policy of rejecting the instructions of the Madonna regarding the Third Secret of Fatima?

The Springtime promised by the architects of the Council (convoked in 1959, the Preparatory Commission of which is instituted in 1960) has yielded a bleak Winter. Instead of revealing the Secret in 1960 as instructed by Heaven, John XXIII called the Council. The aftermath is well documented.

None of the post-1960 popes have revealed the words of Our Lady to the children that accompanied the Vision finally made public in 2000. And all of these men are or seemingly will be canonized.

And thus we wait, and suffer the consequences of doubt and disobedience. We see the results of a greater trust in worldly policy than in the promises and commands of the Mediatrix of All Graces.

Just one excerpt from Antonio Socci's The Fourth Secret of Fatima today, a quote from 20th Century theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar, who says that without Mary:

"Christianity threatens to dehumanize itself inadvertently. The Church becomes functionalist, soulless, a feverish work incapable of stopping, dissipated in noisy projects. And since in this world dominated by men there is a continuous succession of ideologies which supplant each other, everything becomes polemical, critical, bitter, flat and finally boring, while the people remove themselves en masse from a Church of this sort." In Nuovi punti fermi [New Firm Points] (Jaca Book: Milan, 1980).

I will never undersatnd the disobedience by these Popes to the Mother of God: Her words and Her message should be taught and obeyed by every Catholic.
The Message of Fatima is vital.
Our Lady of Fatima pray for us.
