Salazar recognised that without Fatima, national restoration would not have been possible.

In six months, the Immaculate did what neither the monarchy nor the Church had been able to do in over a century: Since 1917, “a special blessing of God has descended on the land of Portugal.

The Dawn of Islam and the Genesis of the Qur’an

We must rediscover the “true history” of 7th and 8th century Arabia in order to understand how the Qur’an and Islam made their apparition in a Christian breeding ground. Then we shall consider a few significant aspects of Arab domination in the entire Near and Middle East, which will lead us to focus on the new “heresy of the Ishmaelites.”

2.0 The Second Secret  : A Great Design of Mercy for the Salvation of Christendom.

The salvation of Christendom is the principal subject of the second part of Our Lady’s great prophetic revelation of July 13, 1917.

God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.” A little devotion is enough to procure infallibly for us the grace of eternal salvation!

II. The Judgement of the Church on Medjugorje.

Bishop Pavao Zanic of Mostar, who was first benevolent to the apparitions and the seers of Medjugorje, set up a canonical commission of enquiry to examine the apparition’s words and actions and those of the seers. Let us briefly relate this courageous testimony that he ceaselessly gave to the truth for the honour of the Church and Mary Immaculate.

6. The Trappist Monastery (1890-1987)

In 1890, Charles de Foucauld arrived at the Trappist Monastery of Notre Dame des Neiges, then he would soon be sent to the monastery in Akbes, Syria. Seven years later, he would obtain permission to follow Jesus a life more consonant with that of Nazareth.

I. The Facts of Medjugorje

Bishop Pavao Zanic of Mostar had a reputation of being an intelligent, supernatural and moderate man who had a great devotion to the Blessed Virgin. It was incumbent on him to make an investigation and to judge the veracity of the apparitions that began taking place in Medjugorje in 1981. He was first benevolent and reflected that if the case of the Herzegovinian Franciscans had not been resolved by men, maybe God had been pleased to send the Blessed Virgin there to urge the rebels to return to obedience and love for the Church. He thus analysed the facts and the persons in the light of Catholic faith, discipline and morality.

17. The Trial Was Never Concluded

“The gravest hour of my priestly life is approaching and I need your spiritual assistance [...] in order to know what God wants and to be able to accomplish it faithfully. For ‘now, you see me a prisoner in spirit, I am on my way to Jerusalem. What will happen to me there I do not know, except that in one city after another the Holy Spirit has been warning me that imprisonment and hardships await me. Yet I consider that life is not a thing to waste words on, provided that when I finish my course I may have carried out the mission that I received from the Lord Jesus, to bear witness to the Gospel of God’s grace.’ ”
