What an amazing year we have encountered in this one hundred anniversary of the Message of Fatima from Our Lady. This year has brought about some interesting things, whether from the sky or past history.
Here we are presently in 2017, yet a historical pattern can be found in these three years: 1517, 1717, and 1917—each of which represents a major assault on the unity and authority of the Catholic Church. 1517 marked the beginning of the so-called Protestant “Reformation,” which tragically divided Western Christianity even to this day. In 1717 the secret society commonly known as Freemasonry was officially established—an organization that, in conjunction with the Illuminati, has consistently denigrated, opposed, and worked to infiltrate and undermine Catholicism. (Most members of Masonry see only the fraternal and charitable activities it uses to disguise its true nature, and are unaware of its diabolical origin and purpose. The Church, however, has never been deceived in this regard; the popes have officially condemned Freemasonry over 200 times, and Catholics are still forbidden to join the Masons.)
What is to become of this significance? I think we are approaching the definitive Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We must stay focused on the Message and living it daily.
