Our Lady at Fatima, speaking to the three children in 1917, said, “He (i.e., God) is going to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, hunger, persecution of the Church. … To forestall this, I shall ask the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart. … If they heed my request, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she (i.e., Russia) shall spread her errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecution of the Church."
I’m sure most of you have heard this many times before. However, my point here is not just to remind you again, but to point out that we have not done what she asked. Thus, we are living through the fact that Russia is spreading her errors throughout the world. There are wars, and the Church is being persecuted.
The world has rejected God and He is allowing us to suffer for our rejection of Him, just like a person who is in poor health because he drinks too much: God doesn’t send an angel to tell him to stop; no, He lets him drink too much and suffer the consequences.
Russia has not been consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so that country has spread her errors (i.e., goals) throughout the world. These goals are listed below and were published in the Congressional Record of Jan. 10, 1963. As you read these goals, recall how they have already been accomplished and disastrously impact our daily life.
CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS:
➢ Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
➢ Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
➢ Promote the United Nations as the only hope for mankind.
➢ Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
➢ Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
➢ Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
➢ Get control of the schools. Use them for transmission belts for Socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party-line in textbooks.
➢ Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which the Communists oppose.
➢ Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policy-making positions.
➢ Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
➢ Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings; substitute shapeless, awkward, and meaningless forms.”
➢ Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive and meaningless art.”
➢ Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
➢ Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, movies, radio, and TV.
➢ Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”
➢ Infiltrate the churches. Discredit the Bible.
➢ Eliminate prayer or any phrase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
➢ Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, etc.
➢ Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
➢ Support any Socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
➢ Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
➢ Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
➢ Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
➢ Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies.
➢ Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
➢ Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
➢ Emphasize the need to raise children away from the “negative influence” of parents.
➢ Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition [e.g., Black Lives Matter & Antifa], that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political, or social problems.
It is certainly not difficult to see that the above Communist goals are actually being increasingly achieved, as per Our Lady’s prediction. It is a direct consequence of the failure to conduct the consecration of Russia to the Blessed Mother.
But what now? What can we expect in the future?
Unfortunately, I expect that our day-to-day life will become almost unbearable, with our culture and morals destroyed by anti-God Communist errors spread everywhere. The other side of this bleak picture is Our Lady’s promise: “…..in the end my Immaculate Heart shall triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, which will be converted, and a time of peace will be given to the world.”
So do not despair. God will not leave uncompromising traditional Catholics in the catacombs indefinitely. No, I believe He will give us many more graces to strengthen us to fight the good fight with inner peace and hope for our heavenly reward.
Of course, it goes without saying that we must pray unceasingly, sacrifice, and live with complete confidence in God.
