    Francisco and Jacinta Marto were two of the three children of Fatima that Our Lady appeared to several times in 1917.  Jacinta Marto was the youngest of the two siblings and she died at age nine, shortly before her tenth birthday.  Before her death, Jacinta spoke words of such a prophetic tone, full of wisdom and supernatural illumination that the person who wrote down these words, Mother Maria da Purificaçao Godinho, was awestruck.  Jacinta’s last words in these conversations with Mother Godinho were full of spiritual instruction and prophecies which are still being fulfilled. Below are the last words of Jacinta Marto which are separated, according to topics.  I’ve put all of her words in bold font.


    Jacinta Marto – Last Words on Priests and Rulers

    The following words of Jacinta Marto are specifically directed toward priests: “My godmother, pray much for sinners!  Pray much for priests!  Pray much for religious!  Priests should only occupy themselves with the affairs of the Church.  Priests should be pure, very pure.  The disobedience of priests and religious to their superiors and to the Holy Father greatly offends Our Lord.” She said this about rulers: “My godmother, pray much for those who govern!  Woe to those who persecute the religion of Our Lord!  If the government left the Church in peace and gave freedom to the holy Faith, it would be blessed by God.”


    Jacinta Marto – Last Words on Sin

    Jacinta Marto had been deeply affected by the vision of Hell that Our Lady had permitted her to see.  She said the following regarding sin: “The sins of the world are very great.” “Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord, and they are not of God.” “If men knew what eternity is, they would do everything to change their lives.” “The sins that lead more souls to Hell are the sins of the flesh.” “Fashions that will greatly offend Our Lord will appear.  People who serve God should not follow fashions.  The Church has no fashions.  Our Lord is always the same.” “Men are lost because they do not think of the death of Our Lord and do not do penance.”


    Jacinta Marto – Last Words on Christian Virtue


    She had this to say about Christian virtue: Talking in Church: Noticing that many visitors chatted and laughed in the chapel of the orphanage, Jacinta asked Mother Godinho to warn them of the lack of respect for the Real Presence this represented.  When this measure did not bring about satisfactory results, she asked that the cardinal be advised that “Our Lady does not want people to talk in church.” “My godmother, do not walk in the midst of luxury.  Flee from riches.  Be very fond of holy poverty and silence.” “Have much charity even for those who are bad.  Speak ill of no one and flee from those who do so.  Be very patient, for patience leads us to Heaven.  Mortification and sacrifices greatly please Our Lord.” “Confession is a sacrament of mercy.  Therefore, one must approach the confessional with confidence and joy.  Without confession there is no salvation.” “The Mother of God wants more virgin souls who bind themselves to her by the vow of chastity.” “To be a woman religious, it is necessary to be very pure in soul and body.” “Do you know what it means to be pure?” asked Mother Godinho. “I do.  I do.  To be pure in body is to keep chastity.  To be pure in soul is not to commit sins, not to look at what one should not see, not to steal, never to lie, always to tell the truth however hard it may be.” “Those who do not keep the promises they make to Our Lady will never succeed in their affairs.” “Doctors do not have light to cure the sick properly because they do not have love of God.” “Who taught you all these things?” asked Mother Godinho. “It was Our Lady, but some I think of myself.  I very much like to think.”


    Jacinta Marto – Last Words on War

    Here are the words of Jacinta Marto concerning war: “Our Lady said that there is much war and dissension in the world.” “Wars are nothing but punishments for the sins of the world.” “Our Lady can no longer hold back the arm of her beloved Son from the world.  It is necessary to do penance.  If people change their ways, Our Lord will still spare the world; but if they do not, the chastisement will come.” “Our Lord is profoundly indignant at the sins and crimes committed in Portugal.  For this reason, a terrible social cataclysm threatens our country, particularly the city of Lisbon.  It seems that a civil war of anarchic or communist character will break out, accompanied by sackings, assassinations, fires, and devastation of all kinds.  The capital will be changed into a veritable image of hell.  When Divine Justice, outraged, inflicts so frightful a punishment, all who can should flee from this city.  This punishment now predicted should be announced gradually and with due discretion.” “If men do not change their ways, Our Lady will send the world a punishment the like of which has never been seen.  It will fall first, …upon Spain.” Jacinta also spoke of “great world events that would take place around 1940.”

    Obviously words of a very holy girl, far more wise than her few years should allow.

    During the operation she endured to have two ribs removed, her doctor later said he could hear her speaking with God while the operation was in progress.  She offered up her sufferings for sinners, and for "the Holy Father" (without ever mentioning the name of a particular pope), "for he will have much to suffer."

    No one has ever been able to say if this suffering would be on earth, in Purgatory or in hell.  Maybe they were any of the three, depending on which pope it is.  

    Her surgeon (Dr. Castro Freire) said he heard Jacinta say, "Now you can save many sinners, dear Jesus, because I suffer much."

    She had known in advance that she would suffer because Our Lady gave her the choice of dying earlier and going to heaven, or living longer and suffering more in the Lisbon hospital, when she would die alone.  Jacinta chose the latter.  She endured a lot of grief being separated from her mother, and this also she offered as a voluntary act of expiation for the conversion of sinners.  

    Dr. Freire's diagnosis was:  "Osteitis of the 7th and 8th ribs, purulent pleurisy with fistula."  Pleurisy is an infection of the membrane inside the rib cage that surrounds the lungs.  This makes breathing very painful.  Every breath she took she was offering to God for the Holy Father and for the conversion of sinners.

    The surgery had to be done with only a local anaesthesia, but in those days it was not well developed and it did not work as intended, so she was conscious and alert the whole time, while these two infected ribs (osteitis) were removed.  This would be as painful as any operation could be, even for an adult, but she was only 9 years old, suffering heroically, without question.  Because she did not have to do this, and yet she chose to take it on, just as Our Lord did on the Cross.  

    And as if this was not enough, there was more.  Before the operation she was very much afraid, and this great fear she also made into a perfect sacrifice to God.  But it was not just the pain that she feared, rather it was something very different.  And while she feared not having her mother there, it is true, that was also a willing offering to God.  But she had three fears, for there was something much greater.  She was willing to set aside her fear of the pain and her fear of not having her mother there, because there was a much greater fear she had, almost to the exclusion of other causes.  Her greatest fear was  that her body would be an occasion of sin to the hospital staff who would see her exposed in the preparation for surgery and during the operation.  

    The graces she called down from heaven for this offering of purity are so great that anyone today who has a problem with habitual sins of purity can find that by praying for the intercession of Blessed Jacinta of Fatima, their impure thoughts will vanish immediately.  All you have to do is to desire to overcome your impurity, and to think about her most agonizing operation and her perfect example of voluntary atonement for the sins OF OTHERS, people who would not even be born for another 40 to 90 years, or more, and ask her for her intercessory grace to overcome your lustful desires, or whatever it is.  

    Jacinta did not suffer defending her faith, so she is not a martyr, but she is a blessed virgin and a very powerful patroness of sinners who would endeavor to overcome sins of the flesh.

    And there is a terrible message here for sinners, for anyone who has a problem with habitual sins of the flesh, who says they want to be absolved and they are trying to overcome them, here is what they can do.  But if such a person chooses NOT to invoke Bl. Jacinta, and chooses NOT to think about how she suffered, and instead of asking honestly for her intercession or perhaps pays mere lip service to her devotion as if it is some kind of vending machine that dispenses grace as if it were a candy bar, and then at the first temptation slides right back into the same old vice of impurity, such a person doesn't really want to overcome their sin.  Such a one is more attached to their sin than they are to holiness, and such a person should take HEED of this problem, because it is a deadly problem.  

    One of the requirements for the reception of a plenary indulgence, for example, is that one must lose ALL ATTACHMENT TO SIN, or else no plenary indulgence is possible.  I just spoke to a priest today who did not understand this at all.  He was a NovusOrdo pastor.  How many souls is he leading astray with his ignorance?  “My godmother, pray much for sinners!  Pray much for priests!  Pray much for religious!  Priests should only occupy themselves with the affairs of the Church.  Priests should be pure, very pure.  The disobedience of priests and religious to their superiors and to the Holy Father greatly offends Our Lord.”  Any priest who says you shouldn't worry about indulgences and that "God knows your intention" -- all that matters is what you desire when you pray, or, whether or not your prayers abide by the rules of indulgences means nothing -- is a priest who is not occupying himself with the affairs of the Church but rather is diverting the faithful away from Church doctrine and toward their own whims and fantasies.

    When Blessed Jacinta suffered she unleashed an avalanche of plenary indulgence that we can tap into if we would, but we must lose our attachment to sin before we can receive this grace.  It requires an act of will, but the intellect must first make the decision because the will is obedient to the intellect when the intellect is strong.  Modernism makes our intellects flabby and that's why they are not strong enough to direct our will.  But we can whip our intellect into shape by making the decision that we are going to do this.

  • Soulguard, I'm glad you did that. It really was the right thing to do.

    If I may, I'd like to suggest that you sit back and give a good think to many things Neil and others have tried to convey to you for quite some time, now.

    You might not recognize those comments (many, quite understandably critical) as a form of "intercession" on your behalf but I think a number of them have been exactly that.

    We all recognize the struggles you have had.

    And I am convinced that we all would like very much to see you achieve a more recollected, less "reactive" state of mind.

    It's an cast iron b**** for every one of us as we try to deal with the crisis in the Church and the insanity of the world at this time.

    And yet, and please think this over (you certainly don't need to respond, not at all), a number of folks have tried to convey really solid advice, time after time, to help YOU deal with it more successfully.

    I wish you every good thing in your struggles, and you remain in my prayers.

    You have some very strong friends, here, if you will simply allow them to provide you with sound, Catholic advice.

    St. John of the Cross once told a Carmelite cloister that each of them was a chisel God would use to carve one another into perfection.

    Keeping that, and the example little Jacinta set, in mind, we can  ALL profit.

    Good luck.
