What a blessing to have the time to prepare for this important time. One suggestion I'd like to offer is to listen to the talks from a mission given on Our Lady of Fatima earlier this year.
Here is the first talk.
Pay especial attention to the end of this first night of the mission where Father discusses the sins that resulted in the flood and in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and quotes from the Jewish commentaries called the Midrash:
"The generation of the flood was not wiped out until they wrote marriage documents for perverse marriages." In other words, the sins which provoked the great flood were the same sins for which Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by fire and brimstone from heaven. Now, I don't think you need me to tell you those are the same sins going on all around us today, not only approved, promoted, and protected by our federal government, but many other governments throughout the world including Italy....Isn't it interesting that the sodomites have chosen the rainbow as a symbol for their movement. Noah preached for a hundred years before the great flood struck and as we know almost no one paid any attention to his warning. The miracle of the sun was a very clear warning from Our Lady of coming events, a wake-up call for all those with eyes to see. But as it was in the days of Noah, so it is in our days. Very few seem to be taking her warnings very seriously."We are in serious trouble. Wake up, Catholics! We have been given much and much is expected from us. What are we doing to atone for the grievous, world-wide sins against God and his laws? "The message [of Fatima] imposes an obligation on the part of the Church."
Lucia in her last interview said, "God will chastise the world and this will be in a terrible manner."
Let us pray and do penance to mitigate the Judgment coming upon us. Unlike the people of Noah's time, let us listen and act before it's too late.
