100 years later – Do we still need Fatima? THIS answer may surprise you!

Next year is the 100-year anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun during an apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. A century after her visit, we ask the question, does the world still need Fatima? Here is one surprising answer.

But Fatima was a century ago. Russia, about which Our Lady delivered a dire warning, fell into Communism, and many Christians were martyred. Most (but not all) agree, Pope John Paul II consecrated Russia to Mary, and the communist regime collapsed and faith reemerged. All of this was predicted by Our Lady, and it all came to pass.

So is the mission of Fatima complete? Do we still need Fatima?

The answer remains yes. And for the same reasons as before! Russia is resurgent on the world stage. War looms, and sins of the flesh are more rampant now than ever. Marriage is eroding, and modesty is virtually extinct.

In fact, a simple “yes” alone does not seem to suffice. Instead, we need a stronger word than yes; an emphatic YES!

Our Lady pointed out several problems that would be; Russia, communism, war, Godlessness, persecution, the decline of marriage, the decline of prayer, and the increase in mortally sinful behavior, particularly sexual immorality and immodesty.

These warnings, like all others have come true. Every. Single. One.

This means we are in more trouble than ever before. Our Lady warned she could no longer stay the hand of judgement. That was a century ago. What can we assume now that we are many times worse?

We should not act surprised if judgement begins tomorrow, nor should we expect a favorable outcome!

Fortunately, Our Lady gave us a way to save ourselves and one another. Pray! Pray the Rosary daily!

“Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world. And after each decade say the following prayer: ‘O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of Thy mercy.'”

In your prayers, please remember to pray for others who are in serious need of mercy. Our Lady mentioned that many people go to hell because nobody prays for them.

Our Lady made a final prediction. She predicted that in the end, Russia would be converted and there would be peace. She assured us we may ask graces from her.

The promises are there for us, let us use them and pray as Our Lady asked. We need Fatima now, more than ever before in the past hundred years.

    Too bad there were no smartphones to capture this “miracle” 100 years ago. Funny that since such tools now exist, these sorts of “miracles” have largely ceased.

    There are miracles occurring all of the time! Did you miss the story about the hosts wedding the blood of Christ? Mother Theresa had to perform miracles in order to become a saint. She became sanctified last month.
    You’ll never see miracles if you turn a blind eye.
