The vision at Fatima occurred in 1917, in Portugal.<quoted text>
I agree. Saints like the Blessed Mary are, or at least we think should be -- humble.
That is why you should be upset with the RCC for putting these less-than-humble words into Mary's mouth.
At Fatima in 1917, Mary supposedly says...
"God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out... "
"Devotion to me or else World War 2" -- not exactly humble.
We BOTH know Mary never said that. It was a lie made up by a corrupt Church in an effort to please Mussolini and the Italian people -- whose armies were supporting the Germans invading Russia.
What a bunch for creeps to put such unflattering words into Mary's mouth. And for such evil cause.
This redates Mussolini's rule by five years and obviously it didn't take place in Italy. The Church took the extra effort to "please Mussolini" by affirming the vision 3 years before the Nazi party took power in Germany, 9 years before the outbreak of WWII, and 11 years before the Nazi invasion of Russia.
Other than all that, your theory holds up.
