Sister Saint-Pierre

For our final considerations, we will discuss how Sister Saint-Pierre served as a precursor and foundation to Our Lady’s visitations at Fatima. For the sake of brevity, we limit our focus to three points.

First: Our Lord [to Sister Saint-Pierre] and Our Lady of Fatima both warned of the need for prayer and penance for the salvation of souls.

Our Lord showed Sister Saint-Pierre “the multitude of souls falling into Hell “and told her to “pray -fervently” for their conversion. He gave her the Golden Arrow prayer, pledging it as a “torrent of grace” for sinners.

Likewise, Our Lady of Fatima showed the children the vision of Hell. Likewise, Our Lady of Fatima showed the children the vision of Hell. She then said: “You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.”

Many Remain Fixed in Misleading, Historically Conditioned Interpretations of Our Lady’s Words

Many Remain Fixed in Misleading, Historically Conditioned Interpretations of Our Lady’s Words

Interpreting the Message in this fashion has led to the tendentious and dogmatized belief that the matters dealt with in the Message and most specifically what is dealt with in the July 13 Secret are matters that, as Cardinal Sodano maintained, “seem to pertain to the past.“ One wonders if he was gazing into a crystal ball when the thought struck him, since such a blunt statement at that would require definite knowledge of future events, yet Cardinal Sodano has never claimed any special prophetic gift. This sort of arbitrary and overly simplistic understanding of the terms and the false conclusion they led to, might have been justified if the errors of Marxist- Leninist Russia had somehow risen from a pipe directly from the pit of Hell straight up into the Bolshevist headquarters in Moscow, only to be brought to an abrupt end with the implosion of the Soviet Union in 1991.

But the Soviet. It did not come into being and subsequently end in such a simple manner.

Our Lady Spoke Of “Russia’s Errors” Not Just One Error

Our Lady Spoke Of “Russia’s Errors” Not Just One Error

On Friday, July 13, 1917, Our Lady Fatima revealed that if Her requests are fufilled then Russia will be converted and there will be peace. On the other hand, if Her requests are not fulfilled, then there will be war, famine and persecution of the Church – there will be martyrdom, persecution of the Pope and the annihilation of nations. It is especially important that the words spoken by Our Lady be understood in a manner that is not circumscribed according to a historically restricted frame of mind that existed during the Soviet period of the Twentieth Century. Our Lady never spoke of `atheistic Communism’ or the `Soviet Union’; yet since during the Soviet period and especially during the Cold War the expression ‘errors of Russia’ was narrowly interpreted to mean ‘atheistic Communism’ and `Russia’ was interpreted as strictly denoting do union of Soviet Socialist Republics, these historically conditioned interpretations continue to stubbornly remain fixed in the minds of many who have attempted to understand what Our Lady meant by the term ‘errors of Russia’.

Lock, Stock and Barrel

More testimony from Bella Dodd came from an eye witness, an acquaintance of mine, now deceased, who actually heard Bella Dodd speak in the early 1950s.

Bella Dodd said that the Communists, at that point (1950s), had their men in the highest places in the Catholic Church. These men were working to bring about change so that the Church would no longer be effective against Communism. In the early 1950s, describing the changes that would take place in the future, Bella Dodd predicted “in 10 or 15 years, you will not recognize the Catholic Church. “

She explained that the tactic was to destroy not the institution of the Church, but rather the Faith of the people, and to even use the institution of the Church, if possible, to destroy the Faith through the promotion of a pseudo religion – something that resembles Catholicism, but is not quite the real thing.

Mrs. Dodd also claimed that the Communists were a driving force for the United Nations, and that the Communist owned the World Council Of Churches “lock, stock and barrel.” This is especially noteworthy since the world Council of Churches was a pioneer in “dialogue” and ecumenism. The World Council of Churches boasts that it is “the most nearly comprehensive instrument in the ecumenical movement in the world today.”

God, Who Made Us Without Us, Will Not Save Us Without Us

We must trust the Virgin most powerful

“Oh yes, if we trust as we should in Mary … we shall recognize in Her that Virgin most powerful ‘who with virginal foot did crush the head of the serpent.’ (Off. Immac. Conc.) However, as Saint Augustine says, “God, who made us without us, will not save us without us” -so if we are going to be saved from the evils that engulf the world and threaten to bring the world to ruin and perdition, we must cooperate with God’s grace according to the design of His wisdom which has ordained that the saving grace be granted through Mary in the manner that She has requested. It behooves us urgently therefore to examine the precise nature of the requests Our Lady made at Fatima.

Mortalium Animos

This is one of the many reasons why the Church always forbade the type of ecumenical practice propagated since Vatican II, because it places the One True Religion established by Our Lord on the same base level as man-made creeds.

In fact, 2000 years of Catholic Teaching condemning ecumenism is summarized in Pope Pius XI’s 1928 encyclical, Mortalium Animos, which was a prophetic, wholesale condemnation of Vatican II‘s ecumenism. It was here that Pope Pius warned:

“… it is clear that the Apostolic See can by no means take part in these assemblies, or it is in any way lawful for Catholics to give such [ecumenical] enterprise their encouragement and support. For if they did so, they would be giving countenance to a false Christianity, quite alien to the one Church of Christ. “

Likewise, the Scriptural condemnation of religious affiliation with non-Catholics is masterfully demonstrated by Bishop George Hay, especially in his book The Sincere Christian, under the heading, “On Communicating In Religion with Those who are Separated from the Church of Christ. “

Where There Is No Hatred of Heresy, There Is No Holiness.

This new orientation, that claims that non-Catholics need not convert because they are “in some mysterious way “part of the Church of Christ, defies the Churches perennial teaching on the necessity of non-Catholics to abandon their errors and return to the one true Church of Jesus Christ, as was summed up in Pius XII’s 1949 Instruction on the Ecumenical Movement:

“True reunion can only come about by the return of dissidents to the the one true Church of Christ the Catholic Church.”

Further, this refusal to combat heresy particularly the heresy of Protestantism, brings to mind the words of the renowned 19th Century writer, Father Frederick Faber, who said, “Where there is no hatred of heresy, there is no holiness. “
