Pope Francis’ entrustment of the world to Our Lady of Fatima has rekindled interest among Catholics about Marian apparitions. The Lady of Fatima apparition came to Portugal in the last stages of bloody World War I, while another, largely ignored Marian apparition occurred in another small European country, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in the last gasps of World War II. While Fatima is well known for the Blessed Mother’s warnings and predictions of coming events in world politics, the apparitions in Amsterdam had even more to say about the future of the world and humanity. And the apparitions in Amsterdam offered a new Marian dogma much as the Rue Du Bac, Paris apparitions to Saint Catherine Laboure in 1830 heralded the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception. The Amsterdam apparitions, moreover, offered humanity help should the Church proclaim a fifth and final Marian dogma.

The following article by the late John Haffert, co-founder of the World Apostolate of Fatima, the “Blue Army,” refers to two important interviews with Sr. Lucia of Fatima (in 1993 to Cardinal Ricardo Vidal of the Philippines and with Haffert himself on May 31, 1999) where the last Fatima seer explicitly states that we are presently in the “Third Day” of the “Seven Day Week” of Fatima.
On July 13, 1917, Our Lady of the Rosary stated: “In the end my Immaculate Heart will Triumph and a Period of Peace will be granted to the world.” The “Period of Peace” prophesied at Fatima which will follow the completion of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is, according to Sr. Lucia, still very much in the process of unfolding at our present historical time. We therefore publish, with permission, the statement of Sr. Lucia, which has been recorded on…
Having looked at the events in the life of Jesus, which are recalled in the first part of the Rosary, we now pass on to the second part, the five Sorrowful Mysteries.
First Sorrowful Mystery: The Prayer of Jesus in the Garden of Olives
In this mystery of the Rosary, we recall the prayer of Jesus Christ in the Garden of Olives.
The Gospels tell us that the Lord spoke several times during his public life of the way He was to die and thus accomplish the work of our redemption. When the time came, after He had celebrated the last Supper with his disciples, during which He instituted the Eucharist to perpetuate his real presence among us, and to prepare Himself for his imminent Passion and Death, He went with them to a place called Gethsemane and there He said to them:
“Sit here, while I go yonder to pray.”…
The message of Fatima arguably constitutes the single most significant Marian message throughout the universally designated Age of Mary (1830-present). Every Marian message which predates Fatima prepares for the worldwide establishment of Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and every Marian message since Fatima seeks to bring to fulfillment the historically prophetic words revealed by Our Lady of the Rosary on July 13, 1917, that “in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is indeed the goal of the entire Marian message to the modern world, and the Triumph of her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart prepares for the Triumph of her Son’s Most Sacred and Eucharist Heart, the “Reign of the Sacred Heart,” the “Eucharistic Reign,” the “New Springtime” for the Church and for the world, a true and extraordinary “Era…
On the night of May 29 to 30, 1930, Sr. Lucia was praying before our Eucharistic Jesus in the chapel. The Fatima visionary spoke “heart to Heart” with our Eucharistic Lord about various questions which had been submitted to her concerning a previous message which had revealed the Five First Saturdays Devotion of Reparation (December 10, 1925).
Sr. Lucia was pondering one particular question posed to her regarding the number of first Saturdays: Why does it have to be “Five Saturdays,” and not nine or seven, in honor of the sorrows of Our Lady? The Fatima seer then directed this question to our Eucharistic Jesus, and he responded with the further revelation of the five great offenses to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Sr. Lucia records the event as follows:
I suddenly felt possessed more…
The Holy Eucharist is—really, truly, substantially and living—the Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Body and Blood of Jesus Christ was formed in the first Tabernacle in which Jesus Christ lived upon earth—namely in the sweet womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The precious blood of the infant Jesus in its first tabernacle upon earth flowed between Mary and her newly conceived child.
The Christ Child had His origin when the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary at the moment she responded to the Angel’s request to become the Mother of the Son of the Most High with the words: “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word.” And the angel departed from her.” (Luke 1:38)
The Holy Eucharist is the true Body and Blood of Jesus Christ really and substantially present under…
Non-Muslims generally harbor a pejorative view of Islam. This presentation offers a different perspective, a Marian outlook espoused by the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen in his book,The World’s First Love, and shared by other devotees of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Islam is the only great post-Christian religion of the world. Since it originated in the seventh century under the leadership of Muhammad, it was possible to include some elements of Christianity and Judaism along with some customs of Arabia.
Islam seems to use the doctrine of the unity of God, his majesty and his creative power, to reject Christ as the Son of God. Not understanding the notion of the Trinity, Muhammad recognizes Christ as a prophet announcing himself, that is, Muhammad.
Christian Europe, the West, barely escaped eradication at the hands of the early Muslim jihadists. At various…
During the 2017 centenary of the Marian apparitions at Fatima, the international Marian Movement, Vox Populi Mariae Mediatrici, is initiating a 2017 worldwide petition drive for the “Fifth Marian Dogma”: the solemn definition of Mary as Spiritual Mother of humanity by our beloved Holy Father, Pope Francis.
Since the beginning of the Church movement for the papal definition of Mary’s Spiritual Motherhood by Cardinal Mercier in 1915, millions of petitions have been sent to the Vatican in support of this dogmatic crown for the Mother of Jesus, who was personally given to us by Jesus to be our Spiritual Mother (Jn. 19:26).
Now, during this monumental year of Marian grace, we ask all the faithful and people of good will to send a brief personal letter to Pope Francis in humble request of his prayerful consideration to define Mary as the “Spiritual Mother of humanity” under its three essential aspects as…
