Fatima is exactly the place where the four bishops should have posed for photos. Fatima should be our focus today, as well. It's message has still not been fulfilled in its entirety. Even Benedict XVI admitted this, albeit reluctantly. He had read the 3rd Secret, and knew full well that the "Message of Fatima,"
which he helped disseminate in 2000, under the auspices of Cdl. Sodano, with full approval from JP2, was essentially a thinly disguised fabrication.
For those CI folks who are semi-persuaded that Fatima is passe and outdated. I add a word of caution. Fatima is still very much at the center of the spiritual universe. All spiritual favors transmitted from Our Lord, and received by us, are done so through the appointed Mediatrix of all graces. Jesus Christ has so willed and established that arrangement.
Mary has been given many names down through the centuries. In these last days She is most prominently "Our Lady of Fatima." Take heed to Her and embrace Her.
According to Father Agustin Fuentes, in an interview with Sr. Lucy in 1957, we learn that there are just "two last remedies" for mankind: 1)Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and, 2) The Rosary, which has been given a "new efficacy." Should some Catholics treat these two last remedies dismissively, they can become guilty of "sin against the Holy Spirit." Not my words, but the words of Our Lady, as told to Lucy and conveyed to the faithful through Fr. Fuentes.
I include below a summary of the testimony above. It is a page taken from Mark Fellow's book, Fatima in Twilight, pg/ 282.
"According to Father Fuentes, Lucy said the Blessed Virgin told her and Francisco and Jacinta that "God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the last two remedies, which signify that there will be no others." Lucy told Fuentes that God had offered the world the Blessed Virgin Mary as "the last means of salvation," and declared: "If you despise and repulse this ultimate means we will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven because we will have committed a sin. which the Gospel calls the sin against the Holy Spirit. This sin consists of openly rejecting with full knowledge and consent the salvation which He offers. Let us remember that Jesus Christ is a very good Son and that He does not permit that we offend and despise His Most Holy Mother.
"The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary... There is no problem I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary...we will save ourselves... console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls...
"Finally, devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Most Holy Mother, consists in considering Her as the seat of mercy, of goodness, and of pardon and the certain door by which we are to enter Heaven.
