Here is a link to the Lifesitenews petition.  Whether or not it succeeds, I don't know.  But as far as I see it, it is worth a shot.  Wherever you fall on the issue of Fatima, I think we can all agree that the times are frightening and the message is urgent to say the least.  Let us all pray that God gives us the great grace the Immaculate Heart promised to us

Thanks for posting the link! I signed. Smile
Didn't Sr Lucia say that the consecration was done as Our Lady requested after Pope St John Paul II consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the 1980s?
Our Lady asked for the consecration of RUSSIA in union with all the Bishops of the world. John Paul II consecrated the WORLD, without mentioning Russia, and without the participation of the Bishops.

In addition to this, we know he wanted to consecrate Russia, but he was advised not to.

"Just how important Fatima was for the holy pope [John Paul II], I was once to witness myself, [in] a personal encounter with him. Obviously, for a long time he had dealt with that significant mission which the Mother of God had given to the seer children there: to consecrate the world [sic] to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. He himself had made this act of consecration on 23 [sic – 25] March 1984, when the statue of Our Lady of Fatima had come to Rome. However, he held back to mention Russia explicitly; because the Vatican diplomats had urgently asked him not to mention this country because otherwise political conflicts might perhaps arise. "

In light of recent events, I am just going to occasionally post here, so it goes up to the top again, and maybe more people will see it.  Please, do share it with friends and family, and have as many people sign as possible. 

Quote:The Divine Wisdom of Our Lady’s Scapular


by Father John Schultz, C.SS.R. 

It is said of the Catholic Church that she boasts:
“Give me the child until he is twelve years of age,
and I will have him for life.” 

Anyone, parent or teacher, engaged in the education of
children can make a similar boast. You can say for
certain: “Give me the child at any age - Let me teach
him one thing he will remember for life, and he will
save his soul.” You will be the instrument in saving
the soul of any child in whose heart you can implant
the wisdom of one lesson which will prompt him to wear
the Scapular of the Blessed Virgin - and to wear it
always. 

To people who do not understand, it is folly to preach
this doctrine. Immediately, shallow thinkers will vent
their rage against habitual sinners who wear the
Scapular in hope of receiving mercy from God. 

“Superstition,” they will cry. “Such hope is
presumption, contrary to the teaching of the Church
and wholly to be rejected. What merit can there be in
a devotion that is practised in sin?”. 

There can be much merit; not of justification, but of
disposing the soul for justification, through the
merits of the Mother of God. To say that it is useless
for a sinner to wear the Scapular, is, through
ignorance, to blaspheme the Mother of God. 

When she appeared to St Simon Stock she did not say:
“Whosoever shall die wearing the Scapular after
leading a good life shall not suffer eternal fire.”
That would make her promise superfluous. You and I
could make a promise like that. What Mary did say was:
“Whosoever shall die wearing this badge of my
confraternity shall not suffer everlasting fire.” 

No matter how extraordinary that promise may appear to
be, the Blessed Mother made it, and she will keep it. 

She has the power to keep any promise because she can
ask that power of God, and God will refuse her
nothing. Every other saint in Heaven asks as a servant
of God. But the Blessed Virgin asks as a Mother. And
to the perfect mother, a perfect Son can refuse
nothing. Those who die wearing the Scapular will not
suffer everlasting fire. Mary said so. That is enough
for me, but she had her reasons for saying so. And we
might as well consider them. 

Those who wear the Scapular always will die in the
Grace of God because they have confidence in the
protection of the Mother of God. And confidence in the
protection of the Mother of God is a sign of
predestination. Somehow or other the soul that is
devoted to Mary will break with sin before death. 

Wearing the Scapular is a sure sign of confidence in
the protection of the Blessed Mother, because to wear
it always is inconvenient and at times even
embarrassing. The Scapular is not like a medal or a
picture of a loved one that can be stuffed into a
pocketbook or a wallet and forgotten for weeks at a
time. 

You cannot forget the Scapular because it is always in
the way. The large Scapular is hot in the summer and
it flies about in the winter. It is not put on and
taken off each day. The strings of the small Scapular
chafe the shoulders in the heat; they become soiled
and must be changed; they break and must be fixed. One
must have two pairs at least in order to wear them
always. People will laugh at them at the beach or in
the swimming pool or gymnasium. 

Yes, they are always in the way, and particularly in
the way of life of modern man. And the one who has no
confidence in the protection of the Blessed Mother
will sooner or later put them aside as many modern
Catholics have done. They do not like them. Scapulars
do not fit into the picture of immodest bathing suits
and evening gowns. 

Shortly before her death in 1920, one of the little
girls to whom the Blessed Mother appeared at Fatima
said: “Certain fashions will be introduced which will
offend Our Divine Lord very much. Those who serve God
should not follow these fashions.” Blessed Jacinta was
nine years old when she said that, but she was
prophesying for the Blessed Mother. Those fashions
have long since been introduced and accepted in the
world in which we live. But I am sure that the world
would be better off if our women had instead suited
their fashions to the wearing of the Scapular. And I
am sure, too, that many more women would save their
souls if they had the courage to dress in such a way
that they could wear the Scapular. 

There is a second reason why those who wear the
Scapular will save their souls. They will never be
without the help of prayer. 

The Mother of God showed a vision of hell to the three
little children of Fatima. She told them: “Pray for
sinners. Remember that many souls are lost because
they have nobody to pray for them.” The sinner who
wears the Scapular has a whole worldwide confraternity
praying for him. 


Deathbed of St Therese 

On the morning of 30 September, 1897, the Little
Flower of Jesus lay upon her death bed in the Convent
of Carmel at Lisieux. Her eyes were fixed on a statue
of Our Lady, and this is how she described her last
night on earth: “Oh with what fervour I have prayed to
her. And yet it has been sheer agony, without a ray of
consolation. Earth’s air is failing me, when shall I
breathe the air of Heaven? I could never have believed
it possible to suffer so intensely. I can explain it
only by my great longing to save souls.” 

That night she died. They took off her Scapular, and
today it is still there in a little reliquary on her
bed. And when one sees it, one cannot help exclaiming:
“Oh Mother of God, she, too, wore the badge of our
Confraternity!” This is what those who make light of
the Scapular cannot understand. The awful suffering of
that little girl, her whole life of suffering and her
agony on this bed belongs to you. She gave it to you
not for saints but for sinners who wore the same
badge. Her brothers and sisters in the Scapular
Confraternity will not know the flames of hell. 

Dear Mother, no wonder you could make such a Promise! 

I can picture hidden away in some convent today
another Little Flower of Jesus, wearing the badge of
Mary’s Confraternity, living out her years in silent
suffering for the souls of sinners. She is praying for
those whom you will teach the wisest lesson I know:
wear the Scapular - always. †
Oh how lovely...

Apparently Jesus lied when he said the gates of Hell will not prevail. If you excuse me I think I will go contemplate the revelation that I am actually a demon whom even Gods mercy can't redeem.

I wish you the best of luck with your hateful, heretical, sedevacantist ravings. Whatever church I belong to, I'm glad its not yours.

I've reported this egregious violation of the forum rules.
From The Secret of the Rosary  

the Eighth Rose, Marvels of the Rosary

Quote:Our Lady blesses not only those who preach her Rosary, but she highly rewards all those who get others to say it by their example.


Alphonsus, King of Leon and Galicia, very much wanted all his servants to honor the Blessed Virgin by saying the Rosary. So he used to hang a large rosary on his belt and always wore it, but unfortunately never said it himself. Nevertheless his wearing it encouraged his courtiers to say the Rosary very devoutly.

One day the King fell seriously ill and when he was given up for dead he found himself, in a vision, before the judgement seat of Our Lord. Many devils were there accusing him of all the sins he had committed and Our Lord as Sovereign Judge was just about to condemn him to hell when Our Lady appeared to intercede for him. She called for a pair of scales and had his sins placed in one of the balances whereas she put the rosary that he had always worn on the other scale, together with all the Rosaries that had been said because of his example. It was found that the Rosaries weighed more than his sins.

Looking at him with great kindness Our Lady said: "As a reward for this little honor that you paid me in wearing my Rosary, I have obtained a great grace for you from my Son. Your life will be spared for a few more years. See that you spend these years wisely, and do penance."

When the King regained consciousness he cried out: "Blessed be the Rosary of the Most Holy Virgin Mary, by which I have been delivered from eternal damnation!"

After he had recovered his health he spent the rest of his life in spreading devotion to the Holy Rosary and said it faithfully every day.

People who love the Blessed Virgin ought to follow the example of King Alphonsus and that of the saints whom I have mentioned so that they too may win other souls for the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary. They will then receive great graces on earth and eternal life later on. "They that explain me shall have life everlasting life." [1] Ecclus. 24:31
