  Blog Sept 23rd. 2014
Sometime ago in an earlier blog I wrote my views on the dreadful pride shown by so many over how Mary Queen of Fatima and Holy Michael the Angel of Peace asked of us. My thoughts run to disgust with so called Church Experts and their acceptance of the personal views of so many serious sagely head-nodders who hold such silly opinions over the Michael, Angel of Peace  and Blessed Mary’s arrival at Fatima. They have concentrated on the third secret, which our Blessed Mother made obvious it was none of our business, and she would allow to be revealed in good time. In fact what is obvious is that by praying as the Children were asked the third secret would never occur. These self professed prophets who look forward to the world and the Church being destroyed, and I might say this looking to God destroying His work is just as foolish the heretical evangelists who write about the remnant with their version, opinion of who is the wise staying on earth and the foolish being taken away. The existing attitude shown for those with whom Blessed Mary has never spent a moment, Her words are, “I do not know them Michael, they are crazy. Through these foolish people and their broadcasting of what could be scripturally foolish has caused Catholic Minds to overlook and count for nothing those instructions and requests for which both Holy Michael and our Blessed Mother asked us all to pray, for atonement and reparation. Blessed Mary and the Angel's words is in reality a warning of what would come if we did not make amendments to our lives with reparation and atonement. I would like to put forward a simple view on the modern ideas of what Fatima was all about. I read and see in many of the contemporary commentators’ thoughts on Fatima there is little care shown of how Catholics should see Blessed Mary’s visit. How our Catholic reaction should be to a request for as Holy Michael put it, “sacrifices and prayers” for the outrages committed against the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary. It seems we have no clue on how Blessed Mary, our Mother is entitled to act. Wrong headed writers whom seem to have extremely, sophisticated and erroneous thoughts have dominated the Catholic Landscape with their opinions and one can scarcely critique their errors without their different supporters making wild accusations as to one’s errors in, as I was told, denigrating good priests. We should all understand what some of the accusations made, by contemporary writers, do truly mean. The very least of them, those concerning the papal office make out good Popes to be untruthful. Is the pointing out of the veiled hints by these priests and their misleading followers in their insinuation of John Paul or Benedict and the Popes before them to be liars, is it wrong on my part? I give you for example their claims no consecration was done, vapid and even more stupid descriptions of what the third secret is. Never present, never having the secondary explanation that both Lucia and Valtorta described to their respective appointed Church guides. Even those are not to interpret the visionaries thoughts. You can answer that for yourselves. The thoughts, opinions and interpretations of so many who were not there and certainly had not heard Lucia, Jacinta or Francisco’s comments, who never met any of the protagonists such as the immediate family and neighbours, should surely keep silent. Unless after the appearances to the three children, they have watched and taken note of the children’s prayer life. That is unless they can prove by heavenly actions they have been become part of the Fatima Revelations by direct invitation from Blessed Mary. Even then they have little hope of convincing the Bishops and priests of this time. I personally have a great fear of believing wrongly, being led astray or leading others astray.
I truly believe that we must go back to earlier witnesses, earlier I claim, than many of the later writers on Fatima. So many visited Fatima years later. So many have written about the contemporary views of their times and did not include the personal stories of the three children. Many have, made a living out of interpretations on a subject they have no right to make a comment. They are not factual and in fact reading many of the of the criticisms made by Catholic Writers indicate they do not know truly how the Church looks upon many prophecies. We must look to scriptures for example, at the participants examining their faith and good works that is the making of atonement and reparation which can cause God’s hand keep from falling violently upon our lives. How many times have we seen in the history of the Church and a strong faithful reaction with prayer give rise to forgiveness by God and consternation to our His enemies? Prophecies can vanish if we act according to heavenly requests. If Blessed Mary does not find these Children to be liars and told them of their eternal Life, how can some foolish writer claim the same. Once Lucia joined the ranks of the Religious, she was silenced by demands of obedience rightly or wrongly given. Her prologue in her Book Fatima in Lucia’s own words lays this problem with the priesthood who wanted so badly to know the secrets with which Lucia was trusted. They acted with great hubris and pride and certainly a great lack of the virtue of patience. Lucia wrote this directly to Her Bishop when told she must, and even the Bishop was at times corrected by her confessor.
“Then along comes Dr Galamba to ask you to command me also to write about the Visions of our Lady. “Command her excellency”, he said, a little while ago in Valencia. “Yes, yes your Excellency command her to write everything, absolutely everything. She’ll will have to do the rounds of purgatory many a time for having kept silence about so many things”. If you read the rest of the prologue you will be disgusted at the pride of the priesthood stamping on Lucia’s obedience and humility. As an aside I ask you where in scriptures in the Acts or anywhere does Blessed Mary obey just one Apostle, Bishop or priest. Other that is, than the Peter Her son’s direct representative?
We have to remember Lucia was the only one left alive who was present. Remember also that Lucia never once made any pretence at making a comment on her experience and belief of what happened or what was said. In fact she was pilloried as she records, herself, once she became a consecrated religious. She obeyed her Mother Superior who of course obeyed Bishops many of whom did not have the first hand experience and benefit of meeting any of the three children at the start just after the time of Fatima’s great occasion. They were not there at the beginning nor were the later commentators who loved the sound of their own voice and the jingle of the coins they earned. The best and most erudite story of Fatima was written by William Thomas Walsh first published in 1947. He was a noted Catholic Historian and Author, with an exemplary reputation for honesty. Commentaries are written today by those who place more credence to modern day conspiracy theorists than Lucia herself. Lucia was not a modern day prophet. Those latter day saints who claim such a complete knowledge have written about the visit of Queen of Peace and have never taken the time to see how the Hierarchy has gradually taken control over Lucia and obviously given orders that she was to not speak of or answer questions on what had happened. They did I think give due consideration to that great advantage the Church often claims, that time and man causes memories to grow dim, that time causes contemporaries to die and sometimes those that are alive are likely to be wrongfully opinionated. Those who were early could and are usually more accurate, especially those who witnessed the physical sufferings of Jacinta(Hyacinth) and little Francisco. Today’s critics have become enamoured of themselves and become advocates of a conspiracy theory that sees nothing but errors and falsehoods in the actions of the recent Popes.
Let us for the moment forget the proven movements of the Sun recorded by news reporters and scientists of the time and the communist politicians of the area that never denied it happened just tried to disprove the evidence of their own eyes. They used the most provocative sin of any time, “rationalism”. If you cannot find the quotes I have given you, they are in the Walsh book and Fatima in Lucia's own words. If you still do not believe then my goodness where is your faith?
Take this to your Parish priest and check what I have written. Pray to Our Lady and ask in her, in her Son's name, “Is this the truth?” She I guarantee will tell you. In the next blog I will scan and print excerpts from Lucia's book. I will give you a time-line on some of the other contentious issues.
