      SPEAKER:  Fr. Foeckler, Miles
      Jesu                TOPIC:    
      Celebrating 100th year of Fatima



      Russian Revolution (WWI) started by Lennon in March 1914 which signifies
      Communism vs Religion.

      Pope Benedict XV on May 5th, 1917 requested 5,000 children to pray to the Blessed
      Mother to end the war.

      This prayer was answered  with
      apparition (appearance) of Blessed Mother to 3 young children, Lucia 11, 

      9, and Jacinta 7.

      Blessed Mother appeared six times to these children near the town of
      Fatima, Portugal.

      She asked them to do the rosary everyday (5 mystery), to ask for the
      conversion of the poor sinners and also told them to come 

      every 13th day of
      each month so she can reveal herself to them.


      1st Apparition – May 13, 1917  (
      First Appearance of Mary)

      2nd Apparition – June 13, 1917 ( Explains the fate of children)

      3rd Apparition – July 13, 1917 
      (Great secret was given & a vision of hell)

      4th Apparition – August 13, 1917 
      (The kidnapping of the children by Mayor)

      5th Apparition – September 13, 1917 (Mary’s presence as showers of flower)

      6th Apparition – October 13, 1917 (Miracle of the sun viewed by 70,000


      During the 3rd apparition on July 13, 1917, Blessed Mother told the
      children in order to prevent war, hunger and persecution of

      the church, Russia
      needs to be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary with
      all the bishops of the world on the same

      and at the same time.

      Again in July 13th, 1929 she announced that ” the moment has come for
      God to ask the Holy Father to make, in union with all 

      the bishops of the world,
      the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart. By this means, He promises
      to save Russia.”


      This specific message however was delayed and disobeyed by Pope Pius XII in
      1942, only consecrating the world with only the 

      substantial involvement of the
      bishops and not specifying ‘Russia only’.

      In 1982, Pope John Paul II have consecrated the world and in 1984, he again
      consecrated with all the bishop.

      Sister Lucia affirms that the consecration has been “accomplished and
      God will keep His word”


      After Fr. Foeckler’s lecture, he invited us to 54 days of Novena starting
      from this day ending on October 13, 2017 which marks 100th year of Fatima. Over
      100 Dioceses all over have joined in this event and we, Motjari group has
      announced to join.
