Are Fatima and Medjugorje Connected by Russia?
Pope Francis speaks of “Piecemeal” World War III beginning to unfold. Religious wars are raging across the Middle East. North Korea is a nuclear menace and Russia suddenly has emerged onto the world stage in a completely unpredictable fashion.
These calamitous events – one right after another – have all seemed so random and unpredictable. However, if we look from a distance, if we look at world events through the looking glass of Catholic prophecy we may find some clues.
Fascinating short video:
In a 1996 interview about the Fatima Third Secret Fr. Malachi Martin said the secret involves Russia and Ukraine.
Fr. Malachi Martin: “Pope John Paul II was asked, “What about the Third Secret of Fatima? Should it not have already been published by 1960?” The Holy Father replied: “Given the seriousness of the contents, my predecessors in the Petrine office diplomatically preferred to postpone publication so as not to encourage the world power of Communism to make certain moves. “On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this: if there is a message in which it is written that theoceans will flood whole areas of the earth, and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something to be so much desired.”
Malachi Martin added: it also involves Russia and Ukraine . Everything will happen before November 2017
Malachi Martin before his death had some extraordinary things to say about Fatima, the Third Secret, and Russia.
Experts and theologians who have studied Fatima have always been puzzled by Russia’s unique status in the messages and secrets. Why was Russia, that tragic nation with such a rich tradition of venerating the Blessed Mother, specifically mentioned? Famous author and Vatican insider, Fr. Malachi Martin, who claimed to have read the “Third Secret” in the 1960’s, hinted that Russia was the key to the ‘Third Secret of Fatima’. He wrote:
Russia’s role in the ‘Vision of Fatima’ is very important because, if we’re to believe the Vision of Fatima, salvation for the world, the cure for the world’s ills, will start in Russia, and that was why the Virgin Mary, in the Fatima vision of 1917, was supposed to have spoken actively about Russia.”Russia, according to Malachi Martin, first of all, has to be cured of her errors. And then, Russia will help the entire world to get better and to cure itself of its sins.
“It’s a very bizarre message in that sense because one would have said that salvation was going to come from the West as we always think because we are Westerners, but no, according to the message of Fatima, salvation will come from the East, and particularly, from the State of Russia itself, which is extraordinary.
Sister Lucia’s single-page letter of the “Third Secret” covers three topics—
1. A Physical chastisement of nations
2. A spiritual chastisement
3. The central function of Russia in the two which in fact, the physical and spiritual chastisements are to be girded on a fateful timetable in which Russia is the ratchet.
Medjugorje and Russia
The Queen of Peace, at Medjugorje revealed an astonishing prediction about Russia to the six young visionaries on November 1, 1981. Keep in mind, in 1981, the Soviet Union was still very much an atheist state – at war with Christianity. The Pope was a real threat to the totalitarian regime. So much so that the Soviet Union planned to kill Pope John Paul II. The assassination attempt occurred on May 13, 1981, an anniversary date of the first appearance of the Virgin Mary at Fatima. One month after the attempt on the Pope’s life, the Virgin Mary began to appear at Medjugorje. Then six months after that the Virgin Mary spoke about the future of Russia. In a brief message to the visionaries, She said: “Russia will come to glorify God the most, the West has made civilization progress, but without God and acts as if they are their own creator”.
“Russia will come to glorify God the most” is this “The Great Prophecy?” It is incredible to think that in 1981 the Virgin Mary would speak about a time in the future when the Soviet Union would disappear and return to its roots as the country of “Russia” and that Russia would experience a spiritual revival unforeseen by the entire world. It is very critical to understand these precise words – this prophecy. The return of religious life today in Russia is undeniable. We now see Vladimir Putin attending church regularly.
Putin lectures America about its rejection of faith and its immorality. Putin, by all accounts, is a devout Russian Orthodox Christians who is often seen in public venerating the Virgin Mary and kissing blessed Icons of the Madonna. The surprising spiritual revival in Russia is taking place at a time when a deep crisis of faith is occurring in Europe and the United States. There is now talk about the potential of religious persecutions taking place in the United States as a result of the historic Supreme Court decision on same sex marriages.
American Thinker writes:For those of us who grew up in America being told that the godless communist atheists in Russia were our enemies, the idea that America might give up on God and Christianity while Russia embraces religion might once have been difficult to accept. But by 2015, the everyday signs in America show a growing contempt for Christianity, under the first president whose very claims of being a Christian are questionable. The exact opposite trend is happening for Russia and its leaders—a return to Christian roots.
