St. Peter Parish Rosary Program
The Blessed Mother in her apparitions always had a mission, a specific message to proclaim. These are more relevant now than ever, with many prophesies having been proven true. In the words of Pope Benedict XVI, “We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete. According to the Message of Fatima Document from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, “Fatima is undoubtedly the most prophetic of modern apparitions.” The prophetic parts of the apparitions given to the three children include:
• A frightening vision of hell to encourage the children to pray and make sacrifices for sinners.
• Prophecy of the end of World War I, which was then in progress, and the coming of World War II; the most horrific and powerful forms of warfare the world had yet seen.
• The prediction of “the immense damage that Russia would do to humanity by abandoning the Christian faith and embracing Communist totalitarianism.”
• A warning - if her call to prayer and penance for sins was not heeded, there would be great suffering in the world.
• That the Holy Father would have much to suffer.
Pray a rosary!
Rosary Program Update
At Fatima the world received, through Blessed Mary, God's own prescription for peace and warning for chastisement. Our Lady promises: “If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace.” However, She also warned: "If My requests are not granted, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world raising up wars and persecutions against the Church, the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated." She told us that the surviving world will be enslaved by atheistic tyrants of Russia. Thankfully, today, Our Lady of Fatima continues to work miracles through Fatima water sent around the world. This water sprang up at the spot where the Bishop told the people to dig, very near where Our Lady appeared at the Cova de Iria (Cove of Peace). The water is known to cure people’s sicknesses and poor health. Still, others are cured when they go on pilgrimage to Fatima, about 90 miles north of Lisbon, Portugal. ~ Pray the Rosary daily!
