Understanding Prophecies for Our Time

Saint Augustine said that we must pray as though everything depends on God and work as though everything depends on us. Thus, in addition to prayer, each of us has an obligation to act. Before one can take the appropriate action, however, one must be informed – about the Faith and about the prophecies God sends to guide us. St. Thomas tells us that God sends prophets to every generation, not to give us new doctrine, but to remind us what we must do to save our souls. The prophets can even serve to remind us what the Church’s leaders may be overlooking or forgetting.

Saint Paul tells us: "Extinguish not the spirit. Despise not prophecies. But prove all things; hold fast that which is good" (1 Thes. 5:19-21). God sends prophets to set a straying world back on the right path, and we must not despise the prophecy that God has sent to us through His prophets.

The conversion of Russia has not been obtained. Anyone with any sense can recognize this. That being the case, the annihilation of nations is surely coming, unless the men who govern the Church change course, abandon their destructive novelties, and simply do what the Mother of God requested at Fatima. We simply can no longer risk relying on the advice of those who are determined to ignore the true signs of the times; the signs of a gathering apocalypse foretold by the Virgin at Fatima. Imploring the grace of God, we will have to advance the cause of true peace in the world without the help of our own superiors, so many of whom have been blinded in their pursuit of a new and alien vision of the Church.

In this undertaking we must gather together under the mantle of Our Lady of Fatima, praying incessantly for Her intercession in this time of great confusion, and never forgetting Her unbreakable promises to the Church and the world.

Our Lady of Fatima, Pray for Us!

Prayer of Repentance

Merciful God,
we have sinned
in what we have thought and said,
in the wrong we have done
and in the good we have not done.
We have sinned in ignorance:
we have sinned in weakness:
we have sinned through our own deliberate fault.
We are truly sorry.
We repent and turn to you.
Forgive us, for our Savior Christ's sake,
and renew our lives to the glory of your name.

Thanks for the kind gesture. But I'm not looking to get to a position. I like to look at how positions are structured to see if they are structured correctly. While you might have the answers to the any problems that ail you regarding your religion, I doubt you've seriously and deeply looked into all the information surrounding it...as in learning the actual languages to see what the history actually says.

My presumption is that many believers are interested in not looking into anything that rocks the boat of their religion so to speak. And the easiest way is just to believe that what you think is correct or at least correct enough to sustain your belief and go no further.

Anyone who has deeply delved into the subject of Christianity--especially as the Bible explains it--finds many things that cast doubt on it's reliability as history, let alone fact.

My fervent prayer for all

We repent, O God most merciful, for all our sins;
for every thought that was false or unjust or unclean;
for every word spoken that ought not to have been spoken;
and for every deed done that ought not to have been done;

We repent for every deed and word and thought inspired by selfishness,
and for every deed and word and thought inspired by hatred.
We repent most specially for every lustful thought and every lustful action;
for every lie; for all hypocrisy;
for every promise given but not fulfilled,
and for all slander and backbiting.

Most specially also, we repent for every action
that has brought ruin to others,
for every word and deed that has given others pain;
and for every wish that pain should befall others.

In Your unbounded mercy, we ask you to forgive us, O God,
for all these sins committed by us,
and to forgive us for our constant failures
to think and speak and act according to Your will.

Lord Jesus Christ, most merciful Saviour of the world, we humbly beseech You, by Your most Sacred Heart, that all the sheep who stray out of Your fold may in one days be converted to You, the Shepherd and Bishop of their souls, who lives and reigns with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, world without end.
Amen.
