Anyone who knows something about Fatima generally has heard the dire warning given by Our Lady, of what would happen if Her requests were not heeded. The final punishment that would incur is the annihilation of nations.
Many assume this annihilation will be literal — that is, whole nations being wiped off the face of the earth — and they are likely correct. However, some Fatima experts, including Father Gruner, spoke of a second form that this annihilation Our Lady spoke of could also take — that is, a spiritual annihilation.
A spiritual annihilation would be whole nations losing the Faith — the only true Faith — the Catholic Faith. We have often heard that all of the punishments Our Lady prophesied have taken place except this final one, the annihilation of nations. And we at The Fatima Center have often spoken of the need to heed Our Lady’s requests before this horrible punishment takes place.
That reference, by default, has to be referring to the physical annihilation because the spiritual one is already well underway. We recently visited one country that fell victim to the spiritual annihilation centuries ago — a sort of precursor to what was to come — Sweden. As you may recall, the Pope went there this past October to “commemorate” the very monster responsible for the spiritual annihilation of that country and the loss of so many souls.
Today, March 13th, I believe the spiritual annihilation of some so-called Catholic nations is well underway and we witnessed this today. While the heretical Anglicans were inside the very heart of Catholicism — St. Peter’s Basilica — our small group of traditional Catholics were making reparation by having a procession with the Pilgrim Virgin of Fatima statue while praying the Rosary.
While the Anglicans were greeted with open arms by the Pope, we were confronted with the stern unwelcoming faces of the Italian police, and stopped after entering St. Peter’s Square with the beautiful statue of Our Lady of Fatima while praying the Rosary.
We were asked where the permission was granted for us to have this procession — never mind that it is Heaven that grants this permission; that means nothing to them. The attitude and posture of the police was not only unfriendly, but one of the two police officers was gearing up for a process that could have resulted in sending our small group to jail. She was on the phone with her superior and it didn’t bode well.
Fortunately, Our Lady intervened because while the officer was on the phone with her supervisor, she was interrupted by a man who came from out of nowhere and approached the officer with what seemed to be an urgent problem in another location in the (St. Peter’s) square.
And though she seemed determined to follow through with her reporting us to her supervisor, the man who interrupted was not taking “no” for an answer. He basically took hold of her arm and started leading her away from what she was doing, whether she wanted to be led away or not.
