A New Year's Prayer

Rather than cataloging the past year's abominations, of which there were many, I thought it might be good to simply offer a prayer of hope for the next.  You see, in the mess of a world we have made, with so much confusion and anxiety, let us not forget that Mary, the Mother of God, has made everything very simple for us.

She announced what would bring peace.  She announced what her Son wanted.  Her plan is very, very simple:

Pray the Rosary; make the Five Saturdays of Reparation.

And she wants the Holy Father, in union with all the Bishops of the world, to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

Most of us Catholics have not done our part.  The Holy Father has not done his part.  Do you think these facts are unrelated?

In Mary's plan is comprehended-- or perhaps it is better to say defeated-- all of the historical, political, and diabolical schemes that have placed us in this misery.

We have the promise of the Mother of God.

In the end, she assured us, the Pope, though late, will consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart; Russia will be converted; we will be given a period of peace.

Can we not make our resolution for this upcoming year-- the last year before the portentous anniversaries coming in 2017-- to do our part?  To pray the Rosary, to make the Five First Saturdays, and to pray for the Pope to consecrate Russia? In this Year of Mercy, what better way to call down God's mercy than that?  Who knows, but He may relent and have mercy on us yet. (cf. Joel 2:14; Jeremias 18:8; Jonas 3:9)

A blessed and happy New Year to you all.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

I ask this as an honest question, not as rhetorical snark: According to Our Sunday Visitor columnist Msgr. Charles Pope, Sr. Lucia herself said the consecration of Russia was performed properly. I further note that after that 1984 consecration, the very next year introduced the Gorbachev era of glasnost and perestroika, ultimately culminating in the collapse of the Soviet Union. So on what basis do you maintain that the consecration did not happen? (Again, I ask as an honest question to understand your argument, not presupposing it is incorrect.)

The consecration has not been done, and what we have is not a period of peace. The proof is overwhelming, and I can't begin to cover it all in the combox. The claim that Sr. Lucia said it had been done is via hearsay and not believable when the facts are examined.

The chronology of the cover up of Fatima, as you might know, begins at least in 1960 if not before. Here is one page that attempts to chronicle it. See particularly the events of 2000-01:


There are also several excellent video presentations on the consecration, secret and Bertone coverup from Fatima Conferences- I'm thinking 2012 or 2013 or 2014. Maybe 2011. Google for them or check YouTube.

Excellent idea and good advice on this New Year. God bless you Timman.
