Satan hates Our Lady’s chaste Fatima message and the three Fatima secrets. The message given in the third secret, which begins “The dogma of Faith will always be preserved in Portugal, etc.”, is not yet revealed. The vision, corresponding to the third message has been revealed, but not the explanatory words which Sister Lucia, in her own writing, begins with the above introduction, including the “etc.”
So, how does the devil deal with Fatima? The “ape of God” (as he has been dubbed by saints) mocks it by inventing “pious secrets” of his own, ten of them so far at Medjugorje, given to six “seers,” which, if they were made known, would expose the silly spectacle for the diabolical ruse that it is.
Diabolical ruse? Too strong, you say? Let me only quote what “Our Lady” said in answer to a question about the world’s “religions.”
From Medjugorje FAQs website: “There was a question asked of Our Lady in October 1981 which was: Are all religions the same? Our Lady answered: ‘Members of all faiths are equal before God. God rules over each faith just like a sovereign over his kingdom. In the world, all religions are not the same because all people have not complied with the commandments of God. They reject and disparage them.’ [Good grief! I am actually embarrassed by this. The devil could surely do better.]
“The difficulty that some Catholics have had with this answer [Difficulty?] is based on the belief that the only salvation is within the Catholic Church. But the Catholic Church does not believe this. In fact, Vatican II in its Dogmatic Constitution on the Church Lumen Genitum says this: ‘Those also can attain to salvation who through no fault of their own do not know the Gospel of Christ or His Church, yet sincerely seek God, and moved by grace strive by their deeds to do His will as it is known to them through the dictates of conscience. Nor does Divine Providence deny the helps necessary for salvation to those who, without blame on their part, have not yet arrived at an explicit knowledge of God and with His grace strive to live a good life.'” (my emphasis)
Accrediting such nonsensical gibberish, as in the above quote, to Our Lady, the Seat of Wisdom, is, well, irreverent, to put it mildly. Materially speaking, the words are blasphemous. Then, whoever it is that provides the answers for this website puts forth two lines from Vatican II’s Lumen Gentium as if they are a refutation of the thrice-defined ex cathedra teaching: No Salvation Outside the Church.
And what is this “Thank you for having responded to my call” given after almost every message since 1981? The world was a lot less evil in 1917, yet the Blessed Mother’s sobering messages to the three shepherding children were specific and rending and anything but frivolous. Nor did she thank them for obeying her. Nor were her feet covered over and hidden as they appear to be in the Medjugorje apparitions, rather they are visible, adorned each by a rose, for these are the feet that crush the head of the serpent.
Medjugorje Today: A few months into the apparitions the Virgin Mary began to entrust to the visionaries informations (sic) they were not allowed to share with other people. These informations are prophecies – future events foretold by the Virgin. More here. And an excellent refutation by Howard Kainz of Crisis Magazine here.
