The date October 13 has a special significance in modern Church history, since it marked the conclusion of the Fatima apparitions in 1917 wherein was predicted the satanic onslaught against the Church that would ensue in the latter part of the 20th century. Providentially several key events of the Church have occurred on that date, which directly relate to the Fatima prophecy.
October 13, 1884 - Pope Leo XIII receives a supernatural manifestation wherein he hears a conversation between Christ and Satan, in which the latter says he will destroy the Catholic Church within 100 years. The manifestation occurs exactly 33 years to the day before the great Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. The “33” is providential in that it directly alludes to the Freemasons in its 33 degrees through which the infernal enemy would infiltrate the Vatican after 1960.
October 13, 1962 - Vatican II is hijacked and falls into the hands of the heretical “Rhine group” when the decision to elect the pontifically appointed candidates for the drafting commissions is illicitly blocked by attending Freemasons and a new slate of candidates is drafted up, thus deflecting the course of the Council.
October 13, 1973 - The Mother of God delivers her warning at Akita, Japan, which includes this excerpt: “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against bishops…. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises.”
October 13, 1977 - Pope Paul VI makes this historic statement to the world: “The tail of the devil is functioning in the disintegration of the Catholic world. The darkness of Satan has entered and spread throughout the Catholic Church, even to its summit. Apostasy, the loss of the faith, is spreading throughout the world and into the highest levels within the Church.”
October 13, 2014 - The October 2014 Extraordinary Synod on the Family issues its midterm Relatio post disceptationem, wherein gay orientation is “valued” and given a welcome by the Church. The relatio triggers heated debate between the left and the right, bringing to new heights the fulfillment of “bishop against bishop, cardinal against cardinal.”
Note that all the above events tie closely with the Fatima Third Secret in its theme of satanic infiltration and apostasy. The last event in particular is frightening. As with Vatican II, the October 2014 Synod was comprised of many good cardinals, but was nonetheless controlled by a progressivist clique to advance moral dissent, namely gay agenda. The Synod unfortunately laid the groundwork for the Oct. 2015 Synod which proposed that gays and adulterers be incorporated as active members of the Church. Whatever else was published in the synodal “relatios” was just cover. Under the pretext of compassion, sin was dignified and presented as a way of life before the children. As chief pastor of the flock, the pope has the duty to stomp out this corruption for the good of all God’s children. We pray he will be a true pastor and do just that!
