‘Our Lady has already crushed his head’: Our Lady of Fatima visionary predicted marriage and family ‘final battle’

Sister Lucia dos Santos, one of the three children who witnessed the Marian apparitions at Fatima, died in 2005. But before her death, she predicted that the final battle between Christ and Satan would be over marriage and the family.
Mexico City, Mexico (CNA/EWTN News) – So says Cardinal Carlo Caffarra, who reports that the visionary sent him a letter with this prediction when he was Archbishop of Bologna, Italy.
This reported statement by Sister Lucia, expressed during the pontificate of Saint John Paul II, was recently revisited by the Desde la Fe (From the Faith) weekly of the Archdiocese of Mexico, in the midst of the debate generated by President Enrqiue Pena Nieto, who announced his intention to promote gay marriage in this country.
The Mexican weekly recalled the statements that Cardinal Caffarra made to the Italian press in 2008, three years after the death of Sister Lucia.
On February 16, 2008, the Italian cardinal had celebrated a Mass at the tomb of Padre Pio, after which he gave an interview with Tele Radio Padre Pio. He was asked about the prophecy of Sister Lucia dos Santos that speaks about “the final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan.”
Cardinal Caffarra explained that Saint John Paul II had commissioned him to plan and establish the Pontifical Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. At the beginning of this work, the cardinal wrote a letter to Sister Lucia of Fatima through her bishop, since he could not do it directly.

“Inexplicably, since I did not expect a reply, seeing as I had only asked for her prayers, I received a long letter with her signature, which is now in the archives of the Institute,” the Italian cardinal said.
“In that letter we find written: ‘The final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan will be about Marriage and the Family.’ Don’t be afraid, she added, because whoever works for the sanctity of Marriage and the Family will always be fought against and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue. Then she concluded: ‘nevertheless, Our Lady has already crushed his head’.”

Cardinal Caffarra added that “speaking again with John Paul II, you could feel that the family was the core, since it has to do with the supporting pillar of creation, the truth of the relationship between man and woman, between the generations. If the foundational pillar is damaged, the entire building collapses and we’re seeing this now, because we are right at this point and we know it.”
“And I am moved when I read the best biographies of Padre Pio,” the cardinal concluded, “about how this man was so attentive to the sanctity of marriage and the holiness of the spouses, even with justifiable rigor at times.”

  • Then the Lord God said to the snake:
    Because you have done this,
    cursed are you
    among all the animals, tame or wild;
    On your belly you shall crawl,
    and dust you shall eat
    all the days of your life.
    I will put enmity between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    They will strike at your head,
    while you strike at their heel. Genesis 3:14-15
    So it is Biblical as stated by God to Satan in the Garden.

  • Patrick is just not properly educated on our The Holy Virgin Mary. He can think and say what he wants, but us true Catholics who are devoted in our faith, believe and pray to her for her intercessionto Jesus. I love our Blessed Mother with all my heart and soul and it hurts me when ppl speak of Her with such disrespect but I have think to myself the reason for his disgusting comments is that he was not properly educated on Our beautiful Blessed Mother.

  • Its obvious Patrick understands this with a textbook mentality and not the spiritual significance of the role of Mary in the redemption work of Jesus Christ.Just like Philip in the Bible someone needs to guide him through.

  • Our blessed special in every way.....pray to her for help and forgiveness
    She champions our causes......I believe and love her dearly. ....I pray you do the same..

  • Mary crushed Satans head when she accepted Gods will and bore Jesus Christ who defeated death and brought life to the world.

  • Mary crushing Satin head was done when she accepted Gods will to give birth to Jesus Christ who in turn defeated death and brought life.

  • Please remember, where we all hope and pray to be one day........there is no religion. Your only goal here on this Earth, is to do God's will. Do you really think that when we leave here and go to our eternity, that our heavenly family...and yes they are all our family....will separate us based on what denomination of Christianity we believe in (or were raised to believe in) here?
    May God bless us ALL....His children
    Peace to you all my brothers and sisters in Christ.
