What Must We Do?
Our Lady made these requests of everyone
• “Amend your lives and ask pardon for sin”
• “People must not continue to offend Our Lord as He is already too much offended”
• Do your daily duty each day
• Keep the commandments of God
• Pray the rosary every day
• Wear the scapular of Mount Carmel always
• Consecrate yourself to Our Lady
• Make acts of reparation to the Immaculate Heart especially on the first Saturdays of the month
Our Lady also commanded in God’s name, the Pope and the Bishops to consecrate RUSSIA to the IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
This specific request means that
The Pope and the Bishops are duty bound to obey Our Lady:
Pope John Paul II wants to consecrate Russia. But the grace (the moral strength and the necessary wisdom) needed to make this solemn and public and collegial act of the Catholic Bishops will only be given by God to the Bishops only “When a sufficient number of people are complying with the Message of Fatima.”
Only when the Pope and the Bishops obey this command of Our Lady of Fatima will peace be given to the world.
What Else Should We Do?
|—||Above all fulfilling the requests of Our Lady given above in our own lives.|
|—||We should spread the Message of Fatima to everyone:|
|• by conversations and|
|• by letters|
|• by spreading: leaflets*|
|books on the Message of Fatima*|
|• by tapes and by lectures|
|• by inviting the Pilgrim Virgin Statue to your area|
|* See Catholic Books Online|
|—||By petitioning Our Bishops to support Pope John Paul II’s efforts to consecrate Russia.|
For those who are concerned that the Collegial Act of Consecration will not take place in time, and nuclear war will occur, we wish to assure them that for those who have consecrated themselves to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart and have lived the Message of Fatima, Our Lady will protect them even though other people around them have not done their part to fulfill Our Lady’s requests to bring peace to the world. This was strikingly demonstrated when the atomic blast struck Hiroshima in August 1945.
The power of the Fatima Message was underscored for the whole world during the atomic explosion at Hiroshima on 6 August, 1945. A German Jesuit and seven of his colleagues were living only eight blocks from the blinding center of the nuclear flash, yet all escaped while flaming death screamed all around them. To this day (June 1984), all eight occupants of that building are alive and well while others living some distance away continue to die from the radiation effects of that frightful holocaust.
Over the years some two hundred scientists have examined these eight survivors, trying to discover what could have spared them from incineration or the lethal storm of radiation. Speaking on TV in the United States, the German Jesuit, Father Hubert Shiffner, gave the startling answer. “In that house the Rosary was prayed every day. In that house, we were living the Message of Fatima.” His words seemed to underline Sister Lucia’s statement in 1977: “Our Lady will protect all Her dear ones.”
Remember if the worst comes to pass, have confidence in Our Lady of Fatima for She has promised:
“But in the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father (and the remaining Bishops) will consecrate Russia to Me. Russia will be converted and a period of peace will be given to mankind.”
