January 22 marked the 33rd anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling which rejected God and His laws in favor of satan, by sanctioning the slaughter of innocents in the womb.
It can only be described as a demonic decision. It is a direct effect of the diabolical disorientation which Sister Lucy spoke of with regard to Holy Mother Church not heeding the requests of Our Lady of Fatima.
Remember, Our Lady said that Russia would spread her errors throughout the world. A primary diabolical error which spewed forth from that country is the sin of legalizing abortion.
For those who say that Russia has been consecrated, the question one may ask is, when in the last 22 years (when the consecration of the world and not Russia, occurred) has abortion ceased? Not only has it not been stopped but this heinous crime continues to spread to other countries.
You may recall that Spain (a country where two years ago, 98% of its citizens called themselves Catholic) voted in a very liberal Socialist government (Communist) and one of the first laws passed was abortion on demand.
Forces in Portugal are working hard to have the same law passed in that country.
Not only has abortion spread, but in the last 22 years, newer methods of killing life in the womb have been developed, and older ones made more prolific.
The statistics on abortion only reflect those killed by surgical abortion, but fail to show the millions being killed by chemical abortion through the use of morning-after pills, or birth control pills, which many incorrectly believe prevent conception but in fact often kill the fetus after conception.
Roe Vs. Wade in Christmastide
I went this year to the Pro-Life March and it struck me, while in Washington, of the mockery against God and His laws, in sanctioning this crime against God and man in the month of January which is still the Christmas season.
I cant help but think it was a planned evil, to pass this law at this time of year, the time in which we celebrate the birth of our Savior, He Who came to save all souls.
The outcome has been the murder of over 40 million innocent human persons, and the depriving of these unbaptized souls of the Beatific Vision. These innocents, though not being subject to satan, are nonetheless deprived of seeing their Creator.
It is murder of the most vile kind -- the slaughter of innocents -- which is one of the four sins crying to Heaven for vengeance.
And certainly we have been given warnings for not heeding Heavens Fatima Message and the subsequent flaunting of crimes against God and man. Such warnings as September 11, 2001, the war in Iraq, the tsunami of December 2004, Hurricane Katrina and other disasters are mild in comparison with what is yet to come.
Many have expressed their horror by what has happened in New Orleans this past year. But the effects of Hurricane Katrina, the Twin Towers terrorist strike, and any of the other disasters will seem as nothing compared to what will happen if we dont soon have Catholics heeding the requests of Our Lady of Fatima, including the Consecration of Russia.
Only Our Lady of the Rosary Can Help
Knowing that only Our Lady of the Rosary can help mankind out of the mess we have gotten ourselves into (remember Our Ladys words at Fatima - only I can help you), you might be curious as to why The Fatima Center would send people to the pro-life march.
The answer is multi-fold:
1. We process with the Pilgrim Virgin Statue to the Supreme Court building and pray many Rosaries as a means of reparation for this sin. It is necessary to do so to appease Gods just anger.
2. We offer this as a sacrifice for the conversion of sinners, as Our Lady asked us to do at Fatima. Our Lady of Fatima came to warn us of the many souls going to hell because there is no one to make sacrifices and pray for them.
3. We reach out to as many individual souls as Heaven sends to us, by giving away free literature on the Message of Fatima and free sacramentals, especially the Rosary and Brown Scapular.
Since heeding Our Ladys requests at Fatima is the only way to stop the moral and spiritual decline of mankind, we must make people aware of Her Message so they can help themselves and others.
It is estimated that only three percent of the Catholic population knows about the soul-saving Message of Fatima. Given this deplorable statistic, this is why we seek various ways to reach people and also why we look to you and our other volunteers to help us reach out to others.
This is also why Father Gruner continues struggling to find different ways of reaching people with this message.
Volunteer Accomplishments in 2005
-- Of the 6,244,830 pieces of literature on the Message of Fatima, and sacramentals (Brown Scapulars, Rosaries, Green Scapulars, and Miraculous Medals) given away for free by this apostolate this past year, approximately one-third (2,028,888) was through your efforts and that of our other volunteers.
-- 330,783 Green Scapulars were made by volunteers.
-- 1,205,571 Rosaries and 156,490 other prayers were pledged. These are in addition to the one (and preferably 3) Hail Mary(s) that we ask all our volunteers to pray daily for this apostolate and Father Gruner.
Some Individual Volunteer Accomplishments
-- 35,000 vials of Fatima Water were filled, and capped by Bernadine in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada (the water is brought from Fatima, Portugal in large jugs and has to be put into small vials in order for us to send to people and share what we have).
-- Lorraine in Staten Island -- after much effort -- managed to get the video documentary, Heavens Key to Peace, on Public Access television, which reaches 100,000 viewers.
-- Debra in Flagler Beach, Florida, managed to get the books, The Whole Truth About Fatima, and The Devils Final Battle on the shelves of local public libraries.
-- Dr. Marilyn, a school teacher of youth for many years in British Columbia, assisted with the reviewing of the new childs book the Fatima Center recently printed, Fatima! Through the Eyes of a Child.
These are just a few examples of some of the many ways you and our other volunteers have served Our Lord and Our Lady, and helped Our Ladys Fatima apostolate. Words cannot begin to express our gratitude for your efforts.
Please Help Us Reach Out
This month we are asking you to help us distribute the most recent issue of The Fatima Crusader, Issue 81, which you likely have already received from Father Gruner.
It covers the August pilgrimage to Fatima, where the Fatima Center joined thousands of other Catholics in making reparation for the Hindu desecration which took place in May 2004 in the Little Chapel of the Apparitions in the sanctuary at Fatima.
If you would like more copies of this issue to pass along to others, please return the enclosed reply form or call us at the volunteer number - 1-800-845-3047.
In the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts,
P.S.We are enclosing with this letter, a New Years Prayer Card which contains the seven Fatima Prayers.
