It’s Mothers’ Day. The Pope is back in the Vatican, in the wake of his trip to Portugal yesterday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Miracle of Fatima. So today is an auspicious occasion to discuss the deeper meaning of the most famous modern “apparition of the Virgin Mother.”
All sorts of rumors have swirled around the “Third Secret” delivered by Mary, mother of Jesus, peace upon them both, to the world in general and the Church in particular, by way of three shepherd children who first witnessed the miracle on May 13, 1917.
The Vatican supposedly released the full text of the Third Secret on June 26, 2000. It portrays, in visionary symbolic terms, an apocalyptic war in which Godly people in general, and/or Godly churchmen in particular (including the Pope) are martyred by ungodly forces.
For various reasons, many skeptics claim the text revealed in 2000 is not the full Third Secret. They say the full Secret is more detailed – and more pointed in its condemnation of satanic-freemasonic infiltration of the Church…concerning which, check out my articles:
Though the various attempts to interpret the Secret’s visionary-symbolic images are certainly interesting, they miss the larger point, which was eloquently stated many decades ago by Archbishop Fulton Sheen:
The Koran, which is the Bible of the Moslems, has many passages concerning the Blessed Virgin. First of all, the Koran believes in her Immaculate Conception, and also, in her Virgin Birth…..The Koran also has verses on the Annunciation, Visitation, and Nativity. Angels are pictured as accompanying the Blessed Mother and saying, Oh Mary, God has chosen you and purified you, and elected you above all the women of the earth. In the 19th chapter of the Koran there are 41 verses on Jesus and Mary. There is such a strong defense of the virginity of Mary here that the Koran in the fourth book, attributes the condemnation of the Jews to their monstrous calumny against the Virgin Mary.
Mary, then, is for the Moslems the true Sayyida, or Lady. The only possible serious rival to her in their creed would be Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed himself. But after the death of Fatima, Mohammed wrote: Thou shalt be the most blessed of women in Paradise, after Mary. In a variant of the text Fatima is made to say; I surpass all the women, except Mary.
This brings us to our second point; namely, why the Blessed Mother, in this 20th Century should have revealed herself in the significant little village of Fatima, so that to all future generations she would be known as “Our Lady of Fatima.” Since nothing ever happens out of Heaven except with a finesse of all details, I believe that the Blessed Virgin chose to be known as “Our Lady of Fatima” as pledge and a sign of hope to the Moslem people, and as an assurance that they, who show her so much respect, will one day accept her divine Son too.
Evidence to support these views is found in the historical fact that the Moslems occupied Portugal for centuries. At the time when they were finally driven out, the last Moslem chief had a beautiful daughter by the name of Fatima. A Catholic boy fell in love with her, and for him she not only stayed behind when the Moslems left, but even embraced the Faith. The young husband was so much in love with her that he changed the name of the town where he lived to Fatima. Thus the very place where our Lady appeared in 1917 bears a historical connection to Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed.
Why would the Virgin Mary choose a town named Fatima, named after the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad, for her most celebrated and most important apparition? This is the real secret, the deepest secret, of Fatima. And it isn’t really all that hard to decrypt.
First, let us recall the “deep significance” of the Virgin Mary in religious history, iconography, and symbolism. Mary (Miriam for Muslims) is a symbol and embodiment of female chastity, purity, and loving motherhood. At a higher level, she embodies the divine feminine – that aspect of God which manifests on the human level as all-embracing motherly love, tenderness, extreme compassion, receptivity, and similar qualities that we think of as feminine.
Mary exploded into Christian consciousness as a sort of “return of the repressed.” Mariolatry was a deep, symbolic rebellion against the Church Fathers’ unbalanced focus on the male aspect of God, and their neglect of the divine feminine. The Trinity – an all-male reproduction fantasy that replaces the actual “reproductive trinity” (mother, father, and child) with an all-male facsimile (father, son, and “holy spirit”) – exemplifies this extreme spiritual disequilibrium at the heart of traditional Christianity.
The revelation to Prophet Muhammad establishing Islam corrected this error in Christianity much more clearly and explicitly:
People of the Book, do not go to excess in your religion, and do not say anything about God except the truth: the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was nothing more than a messenger of God; His word, directed to Mary, a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers and do not speak of a ‘Trinity’—desist, that is better for you—God is only one God, He is far above having a son, everything in the heavens and earth belongs to Him and He is the best one to trust. (4:171)
Islam eliminates the “holy trinity” in favor of Divine Unity (tawheed). It forcefully argues that “God the Father” is a bad metaphor. And it establishes “divine feminine” qualities as the first and most emphasized of the qualities of God: All-Mercifulness and All-Compassion. These two qualities, rahman and raheem, both derive from the word for womb. They express the kind of absolute love and compassion and mercy that, in the human world, is best exemplified by a mother’s love for her children. (Happy Muslim Mother’s Day!)
So the real Secret of Fatima is not merely that the Church Fathers will be martyred in an apocalyptic war if they don’t stop the satanic-freemasonic infiltration of the Church. Such martyrdom and apocalypse (in the bad sense) would also be punishment for Christianity’s error in seeing God as purely masculine and not at all feminine.
Heed the Virgin of Fatima, o ye Christians! Return to a more balanced vision of the Divine, as urged by Mariolatry and plainly stated by God’s revelation to Prophet Muhammad!
But maybe it isn’t just the Christians who are in need of correction and guidance. Today’s Muslims, despite being custodians of the most recent and well-preserved of Divine revelations, should also look to Fatima.
For Fatima, the daughter of Prophet Muhammad, is at the heart of the schism that is wreaking havoc in the Islamic heartlands today: the “Sunni vs. Shia” split. The Shia trace their chain of political and spiritual authority back to Fatima, mother of the Imams. The Sunnis, with the exception of some Sufis, do not.
In her novel Loin de Medine, the late Algerian feminist novelist Assia Djebar imagines Fatima struggling to gain her rightful inheritance. In Djebar’s vision, the first schism in Islam was caused by an “old boys’ network” that refused to allow daughters to inherit political and spiritual authority.
So in Islam too, “Fatima” encodes a primordial mistake, a preference for male over female.
Thus the Apparition of Fatima urges all universal monotheists – the world’s four billion Christians and Muslims – to refrain from idolatrous worship of the merely masculine. Yes, of course God is ineffable, far above the human. But to the extent that we intuit God’s qualities at the human level, we need to rebalance our vision to include the divine feminine.
So the Virgin of Fatima was calling out to both Christians and Muslims, warning us about the hyper-masculinization of our culture that has produced the mass slaughters of modern mechanized warfare. But was she also warning us about our spiritual enemies?
One especially noxious strain of Talmudic Judaism vilifies Jesus and his mother Mary. A notorious passage in the Talmud imagines Jesus boiling in excrement. Another calls Mary a liar and a whore. Recall the words of Archbishop Sheen:
There is such a strong defense of the virginity of Mary here that the Koran in the fourth book, attributes the condemnation of the Jews to their monstrous calumny against the Virgin Mary.
A heretical, satanic offshoot of Talmudic Judaism – traceable to the false messiah Shabtai Zvi and his successor Jacob Frank – founded and steered freemasonry, and soon gained control of the usury banking empires that dominate today’s West, and much of the globe. These are the people behind the “sexual freemasonry” that has infested the Vatican and other centers of power. A mutation of the same movement founded (or at least infiltrated and steered) atheistic world Communism. And of course it runs today’s bankster-driven capitalism. These are all manifestations of the “War on God,” and collectively they represent the enemy that the Miracle of Fatima warns us against.
Russia seems to have a special place in the Fatima prophecies. The 1917 Russian Revolution was a Jewish-atheist-led movement that targeted Russian Orthodox Christianity and Islam – burning and destroying churches and mosques, raping and murdering and pillaging the faithful – yet protecting Judaism and constructing synagogues everywhere. The neocon-CIA-Zionist National Review tells us:
“In 1917, World War I was still raging, and the Russian Revolution broke out in October. The Virgin indicated that Russia would be the instrument through which God chastised the world for its sins. Russia, she said, would spread its “errors.” For the most part, Fátima scholars understand the “errors” to be those of Communism. The Virgin predicted that wars and persecutions would be rampant, various nations would be annihilated, good people would be martyred, and the pope would suffer much.”
Today, Russia is returning to Christianity – so the Freemasonic Zionists are demonizing her leadership and encircling her with nuclear weapons.
These enemies of God have manipulated Western culture to pervert sexuality, debase womanhood and especially motherhood, and destroy the family as the basis of civilization. They hate Putin because he tries to keep Pussy Rioters from vandalizing churches with pornography, and supports traditional Russian family values.
And one of the reasons they declared all-out war on Islam with their 9/11 coup d’etat is that Muslims are resisting the New World Order’s forcible perversion of sexuality and family. Muslim women, in particular, continue to embrace motherhood and family values.
Muslims have lower rates of crime, suicide, drug addiction, divorce, STDs, alcoholism, depression, and other negative social indicators due to the relative resiliency of the Muslim family unit, which is built around the purity, chastity, and mercifully-compassionate loving motherhood of the Muslim woman. The demon-driven enemies of God hate this. That is why they are obsessed with trying to degrade and debase Muslim women in the Muslim lands they invade, occupy, and destroy.
Who better exemplifies the qualities of the Blessed Virgin of Fatima: The Muslim mothers of Palestine, who struggle to raise beautiful children in the depths of Zionist-created hell? Or the Zionist women like Ayalet Shaked who are devoted to their mass murder?
Christians, by allowing themselves to be deceived by the demon that is Satanic-Freemasonic Zionism, have become complicit in the destruction of their Church … and, God forbid, the world. That is what we were warned about in the Message of the Virgin of Fatima.
Mothers’ Day 2017 would be a good day to repent.
