    The Apparitions    For the sake of clarity allow me to list the major catechetical truths communicated to the children by Our Lady in the six apparitions that took place between May 13 and October 13, 1917. I shall omit here the points of "prophecy" made by the Blessed Mother. Although the prophecies are important in themselves and an integral part of the message of Fatima, we must neither forget nor obscure the essential components of the message: faith, conversion to Christ and reparation. 1. God the Father's merciful love for every human person is definitively revealed in the gift...

    The Fatima Children  In the year 1917, in a mountainous region at the center of Portugal, the Mother of God appeared six times to three young children. Elsewhere on the continent the “Great War” raged, that would cost Europe an entire generation, over 37 million lives. Besides sending her own sons to die (in France and North Africa) Portugal was in political chaos at home. There was a dizzy succession of governments following a revolution in 1910. The monarchy had been replaced by a republic, with a new liberal constitution separating Church from state. Government officials, under the influence of...

    Background / History  Portugal – Republic in west of the Iberian peninsula: capital, Lisbon. Christianity was introduced before the 4th century. From the 5th to 8th centuries, the Church endured the invasion of barbarians and the spread of heresies (Arianism, Priscillianism and Pelagianism). The Moors ruled from 711, and were not fully expelled until 1249. In 1139, Portugal became an independent kingdom. In the 15th century, her great explorers (de Gama, Cabral, et al) brought a large overseas empire. Her missionaries carried the Faith to overseas colonies, in India, Africa, and South America. The Reformation in the 16th and...

    "We have to re-learn the essentials: conversion, prayer, penance, and the theological virtues." Thus, Benedict XVI today on the way to Portugal. My friend John L. Allen Jr., the fair-minded nearly ubiquitous, who is sadly still correspondent for for the ultra-liberal NRC, provided an English translation of the airplane presser with Benedict XVI on the way to Lisbon. He spoke of the economic crisis, secularization, the clerical abuse crisis and the "third secret" of Fatima. Here is an excerpt with my relevant emphases and comments. Q: Now we look to Fatima, which will be the spiritual culmination of this trip....

    Get ready for conspiracy season, opening day is almost here. Prepare thyself for an onslaught of information, speculation, and defamation over the next few weeks as the Pope prepares to visit Fatima this month. Speculation about the contents of the famous third secret of Fatima had become such a cottage industry among among some Catholics that they were determined not to let a little thing like the secret being revealed in the year 2000 get in their way.  If you have a successful business model, you stick with it I suppose. It is fair to say that the Pope’s visit...

    John Allen looks at the background of Pope Benedict's coming trip to Fatima, Portugal. He notes that the five foreign trips the Pope has scheduled for this year-- to Malta, Portugal, Cyprus, Great Britain, and Spain-- "are almost laid out in ascending order of difficulty." Benedict in Portugal: A different crisis, secularism, and 'Marian Cool' As fate would have it, Pope Benedict XVI's five foreign trips in 2010 are almost laid out in ascending order of difficulty. Last month's weekend stop in Malta, arguably the most Catholic society on earth, amounted to the warm-up act, while next week's four-day swing...

    "Fatima is a particularly significant place for this Pope," said Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi on Tuesday, noting that it was also a destination for two former Popes. The Holy Father has a thorough knowledge of the history of the Marian sanctuary, he added. Fr. Lombardi held a press conference at the Vatican to prepare the media for the Pope's next trip out of the Vatican. He will be visiting Portugal from May 11-14. The spokesman referred to the Pope's stop in Fatima on May 13 as the highlight and "heart" of the upcoming four-day trip to Portugal, according to...

  • The Lady of Fatima: Has Mary Appeared in Visions?

    02/19/2010 11:32:44 PM PST · by bogusname · 184 replies · 1,470+ views
    THE LADY OF FATIMA- Introduction Some Roman Catholics believe that Mary, the mother of Christ, has actually appeared to people in places like Fatima and Medjugorje. Well, did she? THE LADY OF FATIMA- Biblical? In evaluating the alleged appearances of Mary, our primary concern would be to determine whether these apparitions are indeed biblical. Interestingly enough, these “Marian apparitions” (as they are commonly referred to) are inextricably woven together with the official Catholic teachings about Mary which, by the way, is known as Mariology. In fact, it would be fair to say that Catholic Mariology is the very foundation of...

    The film, The 13th Day, distributed in North America by Ignatius Press, continues to earn rave reviews from viewers. Sr. Helena Burns, FSP, who authors the "Hell Burns" blog, writes: This is a triumph of a film. And I don’t think I’ve ever used that word for a film before. “The 13th Day” was screened here at the 1st Annual John Paul II Film Festival in Miami: British producer Natasha Howes (birthday: May 13, feast of Our Lady of Fatima) was present. I was prepared not to like this film, and very apprehensive about not liking it because...

    Yesterday was the anniversary of the Fatima apparitions. The actual event took place on October 13th, 1917, in Fatima, Portugal. I have written extensively on this subject and although I didn’t BLOG on it yesterday, I will do so today. I received a comment from Matt, who pointed me to the trailer, for the up and coming movie about Fatima. Thanks Matt! Here’s a thumbnail sketch of the events of Fatima. According to those who witnessed it, the Virgin Mary appeared to three children on October 13. Upwards of 70,000 people had waited for her appearance and the promised...
