  • Why did Our Lady of Fatima insist so much on the rosary, and not, say, on making sure one attends Mass on Sundays and holy days?

    It seems she foresaw that finding a valid Mass would be very difficult after 1960. I know people who cannot find a good or valid Mass and thus sustain themselves spiritually solely with the rosary.

  • Hmm, maybe. However I think she didn't mention Mass on Sundays and holy days because that was already so obvious and so widely done by Catholics. In those days Church attendance rates would've been over 90% in Catholic countries, people took Mass very seriously. I think by emphasising on the Rosary she encouraged people to put time aside for the faith on the other days of the week. Many families might've said evening prayers, and maybe prayers at meals, but that'd be it. The Rosary however is a fairly long set of prayers, so by adding it to your routine you set aside a fair bit of time for faith, prayer, pondering on the life of our Lord and how to emulate him. It's an important tool to turn an only-on-Sundays-Catholic into one who really makes the faith a big part of their lives.

  • I believe it was Japan that had no sacraments for 300 years?!  Rosary was their prayer and when missionaries were allowed to come to Japan, they did not know what they would expect.  They found the catholic faithful 65% with their faith.

    I kind of wonder sometimes if we got the message from Our Lady in the original message that Lucia got. Or were we getting messages that we were allowed to know and not the full message?

    Chapter 12 of Daniel states the Mass will come to an end.

    We do as we know to do, pray the rosary.  These times are known as the latter times, end of evil times.  It is the Marian Time.  Our Lady is Co-Redemptorix.  The Magnificat says it.  Read The Mystic City of God. Glories of Mary is very Good to read.

  • Going to mass in Portugal was difficult also. The government was ruled by a masonic revolutionary junta who had made the Church semi-illegal.

    Yes, alluding to your and Songbird's comments on the loss of the Holy Mass,
    Our Lady of Fatima indirectly told the children that we would lose the Mass. 

    When she advised them that we would only have the Holy Rosary and her Immaculate Heart to sustain us.

    The Jesuit, Father Trinchard, explained several years ago, that since Our Lady did not mention Our Lord's Sacred Heart, it meant that we'd lose the Mass at some point.

    Of course, this is what our jealous siblings, the jews want.
    Their rabbinic priesthood was decapitated in 70 AD, so they intend to try and decapitate ours too.

    And of course, the Menzingen brotherhood is ready to help them, by handing over the remnant.
    700 of their trad priests to Francis, the "Destroyer", jew pope.

    But we do have the Rosary, and these prayers, the jews can't take from us. 

    As holy Padre Pio commented at the onset of VII... at least they can't take away prayer from us!


    So, bring it on jew-boys!  You've got nothin!  You're just satan's monkeys!

    We ?  We have the Holy Rosary... the genius of the Blessed Mother, inspired by the Holy Ghost.


    With that... we will stand you down.  And Our Lord will make you our footstools


    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

    Did they ever forbid public worship like what happened in Mexico during the Cristiada?

    It is kind of hard to have public Catholic worship when most of the bishops and priests are in jail.

    There was a masonic revolution there also. The local official who kidnapped the children was also a terrorist. He died while making a bomb to blow someone/something up.
