Second Petition to Pope Francis

At this beginning of the centenary year of Our Lady of Fatima’s apparitions, the Russians and the Turks are allies for peace in Syria, the Israelis and the Americans have resumed relations since the inauguration of Donald Trump, who is favourable to a rapprochement with Vladimir Putin; there is only one person at the centre of this new geopolitics, and it is you, Most Holy Father, whom Our Lady demanded to consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart.

2. The Unbelieving Orphan

Born at Strasbourg on September 15, 1858, Charles de Foucauld had an unhappy childhood. When he became an orphan, he was entrusted to his grandfather. Influenced by the atmosphere of immorality and incredulity that pervaded his high school, he lost the faith and indulged in all his passions.

THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT FATIMA II
1.1. Hell Exists, and We Could Go There.

The Secret of Fatima opens with the terrifying vision of Hell, which reminds us right away of the only thing that counts: our eternity. Even more than the prediction of famines, wars and persecutions, this reminder of an eternity in Hell is one of the most important truths of our Catholic Faith that Our Lady of Fatima wished to recall to our apostate world.

II. The Whole Truth about Fatima

After the deeply moving deaths of the little seers Francisco and Jacinta Marto, the Church would witness the inexorable fulfilment of the prophecies that our Lady of Fatima made in the Second Secret. Volume II of the Whole Truth about Fatima explains all of these tragic events of the 20th century in the light of the numerous divine communications with which Sister Lucy continued to be favoured after the apparitions of 1917.

The Pope and Peace

In his Message for the fiftieth World Day of Peace, Pope Francis draws the picture of the fruits of Paul VI’s Message : “ Today, sadly, we find ourselves engaged in a horrifying world war fought piecemeal. ” It is thus high time for us to obey the Message that was addressed to us a century ago by She Whom Benedict XV had just invoked under the title of Queen of Peace, as the Archbishop of Alep has just done, hastening the liberation of his city.

1. The Foucaulds de Pontbriand.

Throughout all the events of his life, in the most violent storms and the greatest aberrations, we come across this constant in the life of Charles de Foucauld: a tender love for his family. He applied his intelligence to discovering and restoring its legitimist and patriarchal character.

The Reparatory Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

On December 10, 1925, Our Lady of Fatima appeared to Sister Lucy and, beside Her, borne by a luminous cloud, the Child Jesus. The Most Blessed Virgin showed her a Heart encircled by thorns which She was holding in Her hand : “ Behold, My daughter, My Heart surrounded by thorns with which ungrateful men pierce Me at every moment by their blasphemies and their ingratitude. You at least try to console Me. ” Then the Most Blessed Virgin taught her what she should do to console Her. Will you also, at least you, make these acts of reparation to remove the thorns with which ungrateful men pierce the Immaculate Heart of Mary at every moment ?

Point 52. The Universal Kingdom of Christ the Son of God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary

In the society of his Christian brethren, the Phalangist finds the most vast and most perfect human community there is – that to which he owes everything and to which he is primarily devoted.

Petition to Our Lady

Since our Holy Father turns a deaf ear, we must turn to the Blessed Virgin, our Divine Mother. We must enter the mystery of Your two Hearts, O Jesus, O Mary! Their message is the solemn and infallible divine expression of the dogma of the Faith: namely that They are a family in Heaven… and neither of Them bears to see the Other in deep sorrow.

THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT FATIMA II
1.0. Introduction  : At the Heart of the Message  : The Great Secret of July 13, 1917.

In an article of July 1967 doubt was cast on the miracle of the sun since according to its author, “an authentic miracle always has a precise purpose: the confirmation of a dogmatic truth. The phenomenon of October 13, however, seems to be gratuitous. We do not see what purpose it could have; it would seem that God is simply playing with the physiological laws of human vision.”

Blessed Charles de Foucauld

Blessed Charles de Foucauld, beatified on November 13, 2000, is our Father and we have chosen to take him for our model in order to follow him. This means that we let ourselves be taught by Blessed Charles, in the school of his disciple, Father Georges de Nantes, who has given him to us as an example.

Preface  : Call of Silence

When Brother Charles of Jesus returned to the Sahara as a priest, we were conquered, burning with the desire to follow the hermit in the white Trappist’s cowl marked with a red heart and a cross, with a big rosary hanging from his belt, and that unforgettable smile of goodness. “ I have found my vocation, ” I could have said with St. Therese of the Child Jesus had I known those wonderful words at that time… “ I shall be a monk-missionary, a hermit in the depth of the desert, an adorer of Jesus the Host, a living and silent presence of the divine Charity for the poor pagans of the Sahara. 

Petition to Pope Francis

It is through the Mediation of Mary, and only through the mediation of Mary, that the divine gift of peace can be brought about because it is God’s will that every grace of salvation should pass through Her Immaculate Heart. It ensues, Most Holy Father, that only one Person in the world can put an end to so many wars and their train of miseries : You, Most Holy Father, You alone can obtain this miracle from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, by consecrating Russia to Her.

THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT FATIMA
14. The Solution of the Historical Critique

Neither the Modernist nor the rationalist solution is acceptable. Only one solution remains: that of the most serious historical criticism, concluding in favour of the perfect credibility of the witnesses, and thus the supernatural origin of the events of Fatima. Here there are innumerable arguments that can be developed at will.

Point 51. My Kingdom Is not of this World

The Phalangist’s one thought is to recognise the sovereign and all loving empire of Jesus and Mary, and to please Them in every service rendered. He has no political ambition or demands. This indifference to politics finds its source in the Gospel. Yet the Phalangist is not indifferent to the ills that a badly governed society draws down upon itself. Thus he prays for his temporal leaders, for his country’s peace and prosperity.

13. The Rationalist Solution of Gerard de Sede

In 1977, the journalist Gerard de Sede, animated by a Voltarian spirit, wrote: Fatima: Investigation into a Fraud. It is impossible to present this book with the least appearance of seriousness because of the author’s bad faith, lies and calumnies that are an integral part of his thesis of fraud. Regrettably, his satirical pamphlet did immense harm to a number of uninformed readers.

To serve in the dialogue with Islam

It is urgent to destroy the pretence to religious and political supremacy based by Islam on its belief in an exclusively and specifically Arab revelation. « It is to such a belief that our world owes one of its most constant motives for inexpiable war », Father de Nantes observed. To bring this about, he proposed a rigorous translation of the Qur’an, suggesting a new hypothesis on the historical origins of Islam.

12. The Modernist Solution of Father Dhanis

According to this Modernist theologian there are two different histories of Fatima, the “old” one, which refers to the first accounts of the apparitions of 1917, and the “new” one, the elements of which were elaborated by Sister Lucy’s creative fervour from 1935 on. He refers to the “old history” as Fatima I, and to the “new history” as Fatima II.
