20 Feb – Feast of Sts Francisco and Jacinta of Fatima – We need their intercession now more than ever.

Young Jacinta and Francisco, the seers of Fatima were canonized in 2017. They are, I believe, the youngest canonized non-martyr saints on the calendar.

“On the calendar…”.  They aren’t on the traditional Roman calendar.  I’ve written about that before.  We have to do something to harmonize the traditional and modern sanctoral cycles.  I digress.

In May 2017 I wrote about the miracle for the canonization of the two young saints.  HERE

We need their intercession NOW more than ever.  Think about the message of Our Lady at Fatima.   Think about where we are in modern society with its trends, trends so massively offensive to God.  Think about how some in the Church, in positions of real influence and power, have caved into those trends and either step aside for the juggernaut or actively join in pushing it forward.

Have an image of the vision the children were shown of souls falling into Hell, the same image which the amazing St. Veronica Giuliani was shown during her brief translation to Hell.

Souls falling into Hell like snow flakes… like rain.

Sts. Jacinta and Francisco, PRAY FOR US.

    Yes, this is the image I remind myself to picture when I do not want to pray for my enemies or those who are leading the Church, bit by bit, down the wrong path. It makes me pray for them. (I am no saint either).

    Francisco Marto, my confirmation Saint. Confirmed on the anniversary of his passing, April 4 almost 10 years ago.

    Francisco & Jacinta Marto, pray for us!

    Salvador Dali was commissioned to paint an image of hell based on Fatima, and made a trip to Fatima and met with Lucia. I’m not a fan of modern art, but that piece works and it is more terrifying if you know that the artist’s inspiration is that demons are trying to extract a soul in a similar manner to escargot forks with snails.

Think, proof read, preview BEFORE posting!
