If you’re drowning you need a lifeline! Our world is drowning in sin and death. We need Our Lady more than ever. The Fatima message must be revisited again and again. Mary is not an innovator. She speaks the unchanging message of Christ. It’s the same message that permeates Holy Tradition stretching back to the apostles. The “innovations” of Vatican II, the “innovations” of Opus Dei, the “innovations” of dissenters like Fr. James Martin and the pope — they all point to modernism, the “synthesis of all heresies.” Remember when St. Paul urged his followers not to accept anyone preaching a new gospel. We can’t listen to them. Look for the perennial teachings!
I recently came across John Vennari’s pamphlet on Our Lady of Fatima. She is a true prophet bringing the message of Christ to our world, begging us to embrace the will of the Father. Will we imitate her and say yes? Here’s just a bit from the pamphlet. It’s well worth reading the entire thing:
“Our Lady’s visitations at Fatima have given us the basis for an entire world view — a world view that is not outmoded, not outdated. And this world view based on the Fatima Message can never be “updated” to mean something other than what it originally meant; nor can it be downplayed or changed or eclipsed by the superstition of aggiornamento. Nothing that happened in this century can ever outshine in importance the Message that Our Lady gave at Fatima.
“And the Fatima Message is nothing more than an urgent restatement of the traditional teaching of the Church, and a restatement of the urgent need for reparation, with special implications to our times....
“Our Lady at Fatima displayed a profound reverence for the consistent, unchanging teaching of the Church throughout the centuries. When Our Lady came to Fatima, She did not give us any new doctrine, nor did She give us a new understanding of Catholic teaching that would differ from the consistent teaching of the centuries. St. Paul said “But though we, or an angel from Heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.” (Gal. 1:8) And Our Lady followed these sacred guidelines. Not only did She have profound reverence for what the Church always taught, with the same meaning and in the same sense, (eadem sententia eodem sensu) but She reinforced key doctrines and orientations.”
If you want to understand the will of the Father, go to Mary. If you want to increase in love for her Son, go to Mary. If you prefer heaven like St. Philip Nero, go to Mary. She is the key to unlock the treasure. Go to Mary.
Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.
