“I am the Immaculate Conception”
100 years ago today, Our Lady , Mary, the Mother of God, appeared for the 6th time to 3 children in Portugal. During the Third visit, Lucia had asked our Lady to provide a sign, so that the Bishop and others would believe her
Then it happened, on the 6th apparition, it had been raining all day. The People were soaked.. the sky was dark. Suddenly the sun appeared…as if to hurl itself towards the people. It Literally danced across the sky. The people were dry at this point.. and believed our Lady’s message
- “The sun’s disc did not remain immobile. This was not the sparkling of a heavenly body, for it spun round on itself in a mad whirl, when suddenly a clamor was heard from all the people. The sun, whirling, seemed to loosen itself from the firmament and advance threateningly upon the earth as if to crush us with its huge fiery weight. The sensation during those moments was terrible.” —De Marchi attributes this description to Dr. Almeida Garrett, Professor of Natural Sciences at Coimbra University. Theologian Father Stanley L. Jaki wrote that it was actually given by Dr. José Almeida Garrett, a young lawyer, and is often mistakenly attributed to his father, a professor of natural sciences at the University of Coimbra, named Dr. Gonçalo de Almeida Garrett.“
Mary would make 3 predictions. The Great war would soon end, and there would be peace.. However if the people of the world did not repent, there would be a 2nd..more terrible battle. The Third Prediction has been debated as having been fulfilled. It mentioned a Man in white..on a hill.. being pierced with Arrows. Some say it was the Attempt on the life of John Paul the 2nd, others that there is still a second part to this.. that has not been revealed
2 major things came out of Fatima. One was Our Lady’s instructions that Russia’s Heresies (she speaks of the Communist revolution) would spread through the world like wildfire, and only a consecration of the whole country to her Immaculate heart, would spare the world of the turmoil to come.
As of yet, this consecration has not occurred in earnest (despite supposed confirmation from someone who isnt around now to validate it ). As such.. we still have much distress in the world.
The Second piece of this, was the Fatima prayer.. which has great power of intercession “Oh My Jesus, forgive us our Sins.. Save us from the Fires of Hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of thy Mercy”. This would be taught to the children, after receiving a vision of the souls in hell.
All of the above is narration. I really have nothing to contribute, other then Our Mother loves and cares for us. When she Appears.. Its to warn us..and love us.. and to give us a chance to ammend things. I do know the world is in a bad state.. and unless we start following Mary’s example and guidance. She always points us to Jesus.. and she loves us like a mother
Oh Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have Recourse to thee
