WORLD ENSLAVEMENT OR PEACE It's Up to the Pope

by Father Nicholas Gruner and other Fatima experts

INTRODUCTION

by Father Paul Leonard

Full Fatima Message is Obscured

The story of Fatima is known throughout the world and Our Lady of Fatima is venerated everywhere in the Catholic world, yet few have fully grasped the message that the Holy Virgin addressed to the world. By many, Our Lady's words are considered to be merely a call to conversion and penance and a message of hope - like so many other apparitions and messages, nothing more.

Our Lady's Message has long been misinterpreted in this manner because the Message has not only been little publicized, but where it has been propagated, various organizations and individuals have effectively suppressed the Virgin's Message by preaching and publishing only a portion of it.

In order to get an idea as to what extent this situation has gotten out of hand, one needs only to consider the presentation of "The Message" as it is summed up in the flyer published at the Sanctuary in Fatima:

"The Message of Fatima pleads with sinners to stop offending God, to seek pardon for their sins and to amend their lives, as did the prodigal son of the Gospel; it asks the just to pray much and to make sacrifices for sinners so that they may not suffer eternal damnation in hell. All are asked by Our Lady to recite Her Rosary every day, to have devotion to Her Immaculate Heart, and to receive Holy Communion in Reparation to Her Immaculate Heart on the first Saturday of the month. If people do not do these things, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. Many will be martyred, the Holy Father will suffer greatly, and several nations will be annihilated ... Our Blessed Mother's own words assure us of peace and happiness for the entire world, if people do what She requested of them, when She appeared at Fatima in 1917 ...
"Pope John Paul II came on pilgrimage to Fatima on May 12 and 13, 1982 to thank Our Lady for Her protection on the occasion of the attempt on his life on May 13, 1981 and to make the Consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary."

This brief explanation of the message is extremely deceptive - not for what it says, all of which is true, but for what it omits: the great prophecy of how God will bring about the conversion of Russia and restore peace to the world. The means by which this will be accomplished, according to the Holy Virgin, will be the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, performed by the Pope together with all the bishops of the world. Our Lady revealed this in the apparition of July 13, 1917 as part of the "Secret", the third part of which has never been published.

The Heart of the Fatima Message

The heart of the Fatima Message is contained in the "Secret", where Our Lady said: "You saw Hell where the souls of poor sinners go. In order to save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If people do what I ask, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another even worse, will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illuminated by an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world by means of war, hunger and persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent it, I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart and the Communion of reparation on the first Saturdays. If people attend to My requests, Russia will be converted and the world will have peace. If not, Russia will spread its errors throughout the world, fomenting wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be annihilated. In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me; it will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world. In Portugal, the dogmas of the faith will always be kept ... (at this point, the third part of the Secret begins, commonly called "the Third Secret".)

The first part of the Secret consists in the vision of Hell, therefore, Our Lady told the children, "You saw Hell where the souls of poor sinners go." In the next sentence, the Virgin states Her purpose in coming to Fatima: "In order to save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart." Thus, God's purpose is to establish devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in order to save souls and prevent their going to Hell.

Our Co-operation with Our Lady of Fatima's Message is Necessary

Our Lady announced that human co-operation with God's plan is necessary, stating what the consequences would be if that co-operation is given: "If people do what I ask, many souls will be saved and there will be peace." Then She answered: "The war is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another, even worse, will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illuminated by an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world by means of war, hunger and persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father."

Our Lady stated unequivocally that if Her requests were carried out, then there would be peace and many souls would be saved. The war (World War I) would come to an end and would be followed by peace i.e. there would not be a World War II. However, if people would not stop offending God, the Mother of God warned that there would be another war even worse than World War I, and this war would begin in the reign of Pius XI. World War II actually did begin during the reign of Pius XI, and later in the reign of Pius XII, this conflict escalated into a world war.

World War II a Result of Ignoring Fatima

Actually, conflicts broke out between the Japanese Manchurian Army and Chinese forces on July 7, 1937 at the Marco Polo Bridge near Peiping (Beijing).

The Japanese used this incident as a pretext to overrun northern China, and then moved on to eastern and southern China. The war came to an end only when, after the dropping of the atomic bomb, the Japanese Manchurian Army (Kwantung Army) surrendered to Soviet forces, who were only at war for 5 days, in August 1945.

On the night of January 25, 1938, Sister Lucia saw the ominous red glow Our Lady had foretold would be the great sign that God was "going to punish the world by means of war, hunger and persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father". Sister Lucia understood that the punishment of the world was about to begin, and several weeks later, in March (1938), Hitler invaded Austria and annexed it to Germany, and this act began the escalation of events which transformed the various aggressions of Germany, Italy and Japan into World War II.

The catastrophe of another world war and its consequent evils was not inevitable, it could have been avoided by a much simpler means than anything that was formulated or proposed by the Versailles Treaty or the League of Nations: Our Lady said, "If people do what I ask ... there will be peace." What did She ask? She made general requests addressed to all humanity, and a very particular request to the Pope and the bishops. Our Lady's general requests were:

    1) "I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins. They must not continue to offend Our Lord, Who is already deeply offended."

    2) "Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world."

    3) "Pray, pray a great deal, and make sacrifices for sinners, for many souls go to Hell because they have no one to make sacrifices and pray for them." (Our Lord said to Sister Lucia: "The sacrifice that each one can make is to do his duty and obey My Law. That is the form of penance I now demand".)

    4) In the final vision (October 13, 1917) Our Lady silently held out the Scapular - a gesture which indicates that She wants everyone to wear it.

    5) Communion of Reparation on first Saturdays: On December 10, 1925, Our Lady said to Sister Lucia "I promise to assist at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation all those who, on the first Saturdays of five consecutive months, confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and keep Me company for 15 minutes while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to Me."

In particular, in order to prevent the punishment of the world by means of war, hunger, persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father, Our Lady said: "I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the first Saturdays. Our Lady fulfilled Her word on June 13, 1929 at Tuy, Spain, when in great and sublime vision representing the Blessed Trinity, She said to Sister Lucia: "The moment has come for God to ask the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart. He promises to save Russia by this means ..."

The Absolute Importance of the Obedience of the Pope and Bishops in This Matter

At this point we are able to consider how terribly and transcendentally important it is that God's command be fulfilled by the collegial act in which the Pope, together with the bishops of the world, consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is precisely this consecration which Our Lady set forth as the means to prevent the punishment of the world by war, hunger, persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. ("To prevent it, I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart ...")

Our Lady promised unconditionally, that if Her requests were fulfilled, then, "Russia will be converted and the world will have peace".

However, if that which Our Lady requests is not carried out, She warns that: "Russia will spread its errors throughout the world, fomenting wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be annihilated."

The Holy Virgin specifies in unequivocally explicit terms that Russia will be the scourge through whose instrumentality the world will be punished. ("Russia will spread its errors throughout the world, fomenting wars and persecution of the Church.") However, it is not by means of U.N. resolutions or "Star Wars" Strategic Defense Initiative by Pershing Missiles or the NATO Alliance that the world will be made safe from the godless oppression and slavery of Soviet Communist Imperialism: for the Virgin Mary says: "Only I can help you." Therefore, our only hope lies in the fulfillment of Our Lady of Fatima's requests.

At the time when God sent Our Lady to convey His Command that Russia be consecrated by the Pope and bishops, He was expecting swift obedience from them in this matter. However, the pastors of the Church did not comply with His will, and therefore Our Lord, Jesus Christ, appeared to Sister Lucia on August 19, 1931 at Rianxo, (Rianjo) Spain and complained (expressed His displeasure) to her saying: "Make it known to My ministers that it has been given to them that they follow the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of My Command and that they will follow him into misfortune."

This is a very strong warning spoken by Christ Himself, for He, through Saint Margaret Mary, commanded the King of France to consecrate France to His Sacred Heart. The command was not carried out. Louis XVI, after being jailed, tried to obey the command of God but could not make the required public and solemn act, and in 1793, he went to the guillotine.

On January 21, 1935, Sister Lucia wrote, "About three years ago, Our Lord was very displeased because His request had not been attended to and I made this fact known to the bishop in a letter ... from an intimate conversation with Him, it seems that He is ready to show mercy towards Russia as He promised five years ago and which He wishes so much to save." In another letter dated May 18, 1936, Sister Lucia wrote, "if it will be convenient to insist in order to obtain the consecration of Russia ... I have spoken to Our Lord about the subject and not too long ago I asked Him why He would not convert Russia without the Holy Father making the consecration (He replied) 'Because I want My whole Church to acknowledge that consecration as a triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary so that it may extend its cult later on and put the devotion to the Immaculate Heart beside the devotion to My Sacred Heart ... The Holy Father, he will do it but it will be late. Nevertheless, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will save Russia. It has been entrusted to Her.'"

These statements made by Our Lord reaffirm what Our Lady revealed at Fatima: "In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me; it will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." If all that Our Lady of Fatima requested is carried out swiftly, the dreadful chastisement which now approaches would be averted.

Fatima Prophecy is Uniquely Important

The content of the Fatima Message makes it clear that the apparitions of 1917 cannot be placed in the same class or category as the other apparitions - when one carefully ponders the content of Our Lady's Message, it becomes clear that what took place at Fatima is the culmination of more than 2,000 years of prophecy.

St. Methodius (+358) wrote: "A time will come when enemies of Christ will boast: 'We have subjected the earth and all its inhabitants, and the Christians cannot escape our hands.' Then a Roman Emperor will rise in great fury against them ... he will fall upon the foes of Christianity and crush them. Then peace and quiet will reign on earth and the priests will be relieved of all their anxieties." What is meant by "Roman Emperor" in another text is more clearly specified as a "Great Monarch". The Ven. Bartholomeus Holzhauser (+1658), in his commentary on the Apocalypse says: "When everything has been ruined by war; when Catholics are hard pressed by traitorous co-religionists and heretics, when the Church and her servants are denied their rights, the monarchies have been abolished and their rulers murdered ... then the Hand of Almighty God will work a marvelous change, something apparently impossible according to human understanding. There will be a valiant monarch anointed by God ... he will root out false doctrines and destroy the rule of Moslemism. His dominion will extend from the east to the west. All nations will adore God their Lord according to Catholic teaching ... peace will reign over the whole earth, for divine power will bind satan for many years until the coming of the Son of Perdition."

According to St. Caesar of Arles (469-543), "there shall be a great carnage ... the altars and temples shall be destroyed ... the pastors of the Church shall abandon their pulpits and the Church itself be despoiled of all temporalities." The "Great Monarch, a most virtuous man ... will assist the Pope in the reformation of the whole earth. Many princes and nations that are living in error and impiety shall be converted and an admirable peace shall reign among men during many years ... there will be one common law, only one faith, one baptism, one religion. All nations shall recognize the Holy See of Rome ... but after some considerable time fervor shall wane, iniquity shall abound, and moral corruption shall become worse than ever, which shall bring upon mankind the last and worse persecution of Anti-Christ, and the end of the world."

Father Lavinsky (+1708) says: "The world will be harassed by civil wars and greater destruction than ever before. Germany will be partitioned and have many enemies. Religion will be greatly opposed and monks will be banished ... the Cross, to the astonishment of all, will shine in double splendor through many lands because of the great ruler."

Significant is the prophecy of Bishop George Michael Wittman (+1833): "Woe is me! Sad days are at hand for the Holy Church of Jesus Christ. The Passion of Jesus will be renewed in the most dolorous manner in the Church and in her Supreme Head. In all parts of the world there will be wars and revolutions, and much blood will be spread. Distress, disasters and poverty will everywhere be great, since pestilential maladies, scarcity, and other misfortunes will follow one another.

"Violent hands will be laid on the Supreme Head of the Catholic Church: bishops and priests will be persecuted, and schism will be provoked, and confusion reign amid all classes. Times will come so preeminently bad, that it will seem as if the enemies of Christ and His Holy Church, which He founded with His Blood, were about to triumph over her ... Secret societies will wreak great ruin, and exercise a marvelous monetary power, and through that many will be blinded, and infected with the most horrible errors: however, all this shall avail naught ... they cannot shake the rock whereon Christ has founded His Church: 'Portae inferi non praevalebunt'."

Saint Gaspare del Bufalo (+1857) foretells "the destruction of impenitent persecutors of the Church during the three days darkness. He who outlives the darkness and fear of the three days - it will seem to him as if he were alone on earth because of the fact that the world will be covered everywhere with carcasses."

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (+1837) says: "God will ordain two punishments: One in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils, will originate on earth, the other will be sent from heaven. There shall come over all the earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing will be visible and the air will be laden with pestilence, which will claim principally but not exclusively the enemies of religion ...

"On this terrible occasion ... these wicked men, enemies of the Church, and of their God, shall be killed by this divine scourge ... All the enemies of the Church, secret as well as known, will perish over the whole earth during the universal darkness, with the exception of some few, whom God will soon after convert."

Sister Rose Asdente of Taggia (1847): "A great revolution will spread over all Europe ... A lawless democratic spirit of disorder shall reign supreme throughout all Europe. There will be a general overthrow.

"There shall be great confusion of people against people, and nations against nations ... The Russians and Prussians (East Germans) shall come to make war on Italy ... Priests and religious shall be butchered and the earth, especially in Italy, shall be watered with their blood."

These prophecies (which are only a small portion of the well known prophetic texts) illustrate the futility of mere human expectations and illusions in respect to man's desire for peace and tranquility. Although the normal course of action when a murder is committed is to arrest and punish the killer, World War I started when instead of allowing the normal legal procedure to take place, Austria declared war on Serbia.

All of Europe was expecting a brief war, but the war did not swiftly complete its course as generally was the case in European wars. That long and horrible war was an unexpected catastrophe, and as Our Lady said, "war is a punishment for sin", that one was no exception: Our Lord told Père Lamy (+1931) that "the war had three causes: Blasphemy, Sunday labor, and the desecration of marriage" (contraception, etc.).

The "Great War" came to be called "The war to end all wars", but while men were looking forward to the end of the war and the beginning of peace, Our Lady was already giving the warning at Fatima: "The war is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another even worse will begin in the reign of Pius XI." Within 20 years, World War II was raging. Our Lady further warned that if Her requests do not meet with compliance, then "Russia will spread its errors throughout the world, fomenting wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be annihilated."

Fatima Refers to End of 20th Century

The warnings that Our Lady made at Fatima indicate that the catastrophe foretold by saints and prophets in past centuries is about to take place. In 1945, only a short time after the end of World War II, Pope Pius XII stated in his Christmas message to the Cardinals: "The world is on the verge of a frightful abyss ... Men must prepare themselves for suffering such as mankind has never seen."

Sister Elena Aiello (+1961) who is of great renown for her prophecies was told by Our Lady: "My Heart is sad for so many sufferings in an impending world in ruin ... The wrath of God is near. Soon the world will be afflicted with great calamities, bloody revolutions, frightful hurricanes and the overflowing of streams and the seas ... the world will be overturned in a new and more terrible war. Arms most deadly will destroy peoples and nations. The dictators of the earth, specimens infernal, will demolish the churches and desecrate the Holy Eucharist, and will destroy things most dear. In this impious war, much will be destroyed of that which has been built by the hands of man.

"Clouds with lightning flashes of fire in the sky and a tempest of fire shall fall upon the world. This terrible scourge, never before seen in the history of humanity, will last seventy hours. Godless persons will be crushed and wiped out. Many will be lost because they remain in their obstinacy of sin. They shall be seen the power of light over the power of darkness. ... some nations will be purified while others will disappear entirely.

"Russia will march upon all the nations of Europe, particularly Italy, and will raise her flag over the dome of St. Peter's. Italy will be severely tried by a great revolution and Rome will be purified for its many sins, especially those of impurity ...

"Another terrible war will come from the east to the west. Russia with her secret armies (terrorists) will battle America; will overrun Europe. The river Rhine will be overflowing with corpses and blood. Italy, also, will be harassed by a great revolution, and the Pope will suffer terribly.

"Great earthquakes will swallow up entire cities and countries, and will bring epidemics, famine and terrible destruction - especially where the sons of darkness are (communists, Masons and similar sectaries)."

These same chastisements are part of the content of the secret that Our Lady revealed to the children at Fatima - these things will take place if Her requests are not obeyed. When John Paul II spoke on the "Third Secret" of Fatima in Fulda, he revealed a portion of it: "... the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth, and from one moment to the next millions of people will perish ..."

The Fatima Secret and the La Salette Secret

On November 11, 1984, Cardinal Ratzinger in an interview stated that he had read the Secret and that "The things contained in this 'Third Secret' correspond to what has been announced in Scripture and has been said again and again in many other Marian apparitions. Cardinal Ratzinger's statement is very revealing! In the apparition of the Blessed Virgin at La Salette (September 19, 1846), Our Lady said to Melanie (the little girl): "... God will strike in an unprecedented way. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God will exhaust His wrath upon them, and no one will be able to escape so many afflictions together ...

"The society of men is on the eve of the most terrible scourges and of the gravest events ... The Holy Father will suffer a great deal. I will be with him until the end and receive his sacrifice. The mischievous would attempt his life several times ... but neither he nor his successor will see the triumph of the Church of God. All the civil governments will have one and the same plan, which will be to abolish and do away with every religious principle, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and vice of all kinds ... France, Italy, Spain and England will be at war. Blood will flow in the streets. Frenchmen will fight Frenchmen, Italian will fight Italian. A general war will follow which will be appalling."

In addition to these temporal chastisements, there will be a great spiritual chastisement: The published part of the Fatima secret concludes: "In Portugal, the dogma of the faith will always be kept ..." At this point of the message, Our Lady shifts from temporal to spiritual matters. Cardinal Ratzinger stated that the 'Third Secret' refers to "the dangers threatening the faith and the life of the Christian, and therefore the world". Similarly, on September 10, 1984, Bishop Cosme do Amaral, the present Bishop of Leiria, Fatima, in a conference at the Technical University of Vienna, stated that the content of the Third Secret concerns our faith, "the loss of faith".

At La Salette, Our Lady foretold that, "the Church will witness a frightful crisis", a "time of darkness".

St. Hildegard (+1179) writing of this great time of tribulation said: "people will renounce the authority of the Pope. Individual countries will prefer their own church rulers to the Pope." (She says that this will take place when Germany will have been divided.) Likewise, the Ven. Holzhauser says that the hand of Almighty God will intervene, "when Catholics are hard pressed by traitorous co-religionists and heretics".

The message and warnings of Our Lady concurs entirely with the prophetic warnings of the saints down through the centuries, and, as Cardinal Ratzinger says, "corresponds to what has been announced in Scripture." The difference however is this: in the past centuries, the great chastisement of a future age was announced. At Fatima, Our Lady warns that now the hour has come and the threatened chastisements are already beginning to take place just as Our Lady foretold. World War II took place as Our Lady foretold, and since 1917, Russia has been fomenting wars and persecution of the Church in Europe, Asia, Africa and America. Their hired assassin has even shot the Pope. Meanwhile, in various parts of the world we see starvation in the midst of abundance.

Only Our Lady of Fatima Can Help Us

Every sort of means has been proposed to end or at least arrest these evils which threaten to engulf and devour the world: financial, political, ideological and military solutions. However, all of these efforts have proven to be futile. Our Lady said at Fatima: "Only I can help you." She has announced to us the only solution, the only means that will remedy the profound crisis that now besets the whole of civilization.

The great chastisement is already in its initial stages, and Our Lady said at Fatima: "To prevent it I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the first Saturdays." Now more than 50 years have passed since Our Lady came to announce (June 13, 1929) that "the moment has come for God to ask the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart".

Why Russia Specifically

Why must Russia be consecrated - why specifically Russia? Why not the whole world but Russia in particular?

Because the communist leaders of Russia have declared a war to the death against God, against His Church, against His religion.

It is not for political, economic or social reasons why the communists wage their fiendish war against religion and attempt to exterminate the name of God from the collective memory of humanity. "The ultimate aim of Communism" says Richard Wurmbrandt, "... is not to establish another social or economic system. It is to mock God and praise satan."

Communism was not created by political theorists but by Masonic sectaries whose purpose was to exterminate the Christian religion by overthrowing the Christian Monarchies, abolishing international boundaries and erecting a Godless one world republic. It was the patriarchs of Masonry, according to certain sources, who commissioned Adam Weishaupt to found the Masonic sect called the "Order of Illuminati" in 1776 which according to their slogan: "No God, No Property, No Government", set about to accomplish this fiendish scheme. The order and its devilish plans were discovered by the Bavarian police in 1785. The Illuminati scattered and regrouped under the name of "The League of Just Men". Weishaupt "planned and organized the French Revolution. This he accomplished by absorbing into his order the Masonic Lodges of France." Weishaupt died in 1830 but his order lived on. In 1848 they commissioned the publication of the "Communist Manifesto" (twenty years later Marx's name was appended to the Manifesto). They changed their name to the "League of Communists" and Karl Marx became their theoretician.

Marx at the Service of Satan

The writings of Marx expose the true purpose of Communism: the extermination of religion and the abolition of all liberties under a one world dictatorship. In both of their writings it is not capitalism or the bourgeoisie which is the ultimate enemy, but God Himself.

In the "Invocation of One in Despair", Marx wrote: "I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above" and, "a God has snatched from me my all in the curse and rock of destiny ... Nothing but revenge is left to me ..."

In a poem called "The Prayer" Marx says:

    "The hellish vapors rise and fill the brain
    till I go mad
    and my heart is utterly changed.
    See this sword?
    The Prince of Darkness
    Sold it to me ..."

In the "Invocation", the words of Lucifer became the words of Marx. In Isaiah 19:13, Lucifer boasts: "I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God." In the "Invocation", Marx says: "I shall build my throne high overhead. Cold, tremendous shall its summit be, for its bulwark - superstitious dread (satanism) for its marshal - blackest agony (cruel tyranny)." God answered to satan: "How art thou fallen from heaven O lucifer? ... thou shalt be brought down to hell into the depth of the pit." (Isaiah 19:12, 15.) Likewise, Marx: "... the abyss yawns in darkness. You will sink down and I will follow laughing. (Oulanem) Similarly: "Ruined, ruined, My time has clean run out ... Soon, I shall embrace eternity to my breast, and soon I shall howl gigantic curses on mankind. (Oulanem) Also: "Ha! Eternity! She is our eternal grief. An indescribable and immeasurable Death ... Ourselves being clockwork, blindly mechanical ... Having no purpose save to happen, to be ruined, so there shall be something to ruin. (Oulanem) Again, in The Pale Maiden:

    "Thus heaven I've forfeited,
    I know it full well,
    My soul, once true to God,
    Is chosen for hell."

In these poems, Marx states the true purpose of his life's work: "Soon I shall howl gigantic curses on mankind. If there is something which devours, I'll leap within it, though I bring the world to ruins, the world which bulks between me and the abyss, I will smash to pieces with my enduring curses. I'll throw my arms around its harsh reality: Embracing me, the world will dumbly pass away and then sink down to utter nothingness, perished ..."

"It is essential" says Richard Wurmbrandt, "to state emphatically, that Marx and his confreres, while anti-God, were not atheists (as they publicly pretended to be) ... they hated a God in whom they believed ... the ultimate aim of Communism in conquering new countries is not to establish another economic system: It is to mock God and praise satan." (Wurmbrandt, "Was Karl Marx a Satanist").

Marxist philosophy is a deliberate inversion of the truth, for Marx was fascinated with the inversion common to satanists. Thus the inversion of Emanuel is Oul/an/em which is the title of his satanic poem. "Inversions so permeated Marx's whole manner of thinking", Wurmbrandt explains, "that he used them everywhere." He answers Proudhon's book The Philosophy of Misery, with another book entitled The Misery of Philosophy. He also wrote "We have to use instead of the weapon of criticism, the criticism of weapons." (Marx, Zur Kritik der Hegelschen Rechtsphilosophie. Einleitung MEGA, I.; (1) 614.) Consequently, while Marx's doctrine teaches that "man is the supreme being for man", (ibid) and "the suppression of religion as an illusory happiness of the people is presupposition of his true happiness", (ibid) in reality, Marx's stated purpose is the eternal ruin and destruction of the whole world.

According to the communist doctrine of Marx, the ultimate purpose of Socialist revolution is to emancipate man by suppressing religion: "The critique of heaven transforms itself into the critique of the earth ..., the critique of theology into the critique of politics" (ibid) thus, "the fight against religion is indirectly the fight against that world of which religion is the spiritual aroma" (ibid). What this means is that since God is an illusion then man must be the supreme being for man, Christian civilization must be overthrown and destroyed in order to abolish and exterminate religion from the face of the earth. In short, the Communist program is identical to the impious program of Masonry: that of destroying the thrones and the altars, merely disguised as a class struggle.

Leninist Russia at Service of Satan

Communism, therefore, is essentially and ultimately a war against religion - it is not a political ideology or a social system but hell's war against God. Marx states (to Robert Owen) that Communism begins with atheism - atheism is the first principle of Communism, and it is upon the principle of atheism that the Communist party of Russia established the Soviet Republic. The Christian State of Russia was desecrated when the Communists established it and replaced it with an atheist regime that Lenin founded on the principle that "any notion of a Lord God is an unspeakable abomination ... the most dangerous abomination, the most loathsome pestilence".

Lenin established Russia as the headquarters of the world revolution against religion. God, however, has elected that nation for a holy purpose, and He has therefore commanded that the Pope and the bishops consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in order that the nation be solemnly established in its holy vocation. God has decreed this, for in His name Our Lady said (June 13, 1929), "He promises to save Russia by this means."

Russia Must Be Consecrated

Russia must be consecrated to Mary. When Sister Lucia asked Jesus "why He would not convert Russia without the Holy Father making that consecration", Our Lord replied, "Because I want My whole Church to acknowledge that consecration as a triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary so that it may extend its cult later on and put the devotion to the Immaculate Heart beside the devotion to My Sacred Heart." (letter of May 18, 1936.)

This consecration will be the only means by which God will save Russia and restore peace to the world. God has decreed that this consecration be performed: "The Holy Father", Our Divine Lord said to Sister Lucia, "he will do it, but it will be late. Nevertheless, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will save Russia. It has been entrusted to Her." (May 18, 1936.)

The conversion of Russia has been entrusted to Mary, because "God", in the prophetic words of Jacinta, "gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary ... the Lord has entrusted the peace of the world to Her." Our Blessed Lady promises: "In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me; it will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world."

Peace will be given to the world. If the consecration is done now, the world will be saved. If it is postponed, that peace may come only after the enslavement of the world to godless communist tyranny - after the annihilation of entire nations, and after the damnation of an immense number of souls takes place.

Let us pray and do penance and implore the pastors of the Church to fulfill God's command regarding the consecration, lest we ourselves experience the fulfillment of the dreadful prophecy made centuries ago: "When pictures look alive, with movements free (television, movies), when ships like fishes swim beneath the sea (submarines), when men, outstripping birds can soar the sky (airplanes), then half the world deep drenched in blood shall die."
