Signs and Statues: Is history repeating itself in America….Prophecies of Our Lady of Fatima and the Fascinating Event Known as “The Suppression of Miracles” …”Blood gushed from the Christ statue..the crowd went on its knees and prayed”

Mystic Post Note:  The mass hysteria taking place across the nation attached to the narrative that historical symbols of America’s past deemed hateful by the progressive left should be destroyed is reminiscent of the rise of Atheist communism in Russia exactly 100 years ago.

Today we see the destruction of statues in Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, – where it ends nobody knows. What we do know is that persecutors of Christianity in Russia actively destroyed Christian statues and blew up important cathedrals. (see video below)

The rise of atheism in Russia (Russia’s error) predicted by Our Lady of Fatima would lead to the violent attack against Christianity and eventually to the mass murder of millions of people across the globe.  The persecution of Christianity in Russia began just days after the Sun Miracle at Fatima in the event known as the “October Revolution.”

If the Alt-Left goes after Thomas Jefferson then nothing will stop this train of evil. The Catholic Church will be next.  It seems possible in today’s climate that the Catholic Church will be attacked in a serious way as a “hate group”. We are already seeing signs.

Please pray, Pray from the heart.

Pray, pray pray.


Wikipedia has an interesting page of Russia’s persecution of the Church that took place shortly after the October Revolution titled “The anti-religious campaign during the Russian Revolution,”


The Suppression of Miracles

One of the most famous of these supposed miracles occurred in the village of Kalinovka near Vinnitsa in the Ukraine. A detachment of mounted police had come to the village in order to close the local church, but they were met by hostile crowds. The crowds were too big for the police to force their way through and so they retreated. Not far from the church, however, there was a traditional Crucifix standing at a crossroads, and the policemen in frustration fired at the crucifix. One of the bullets hit the crucifix in Christ’s side and suddenly blood gushed out of the hole reportedly. One of the policemen lost control of himself and fell off his horse, while the others took off. The crowd went on its knees and prayed in front of the bleeding crucifix. The news spread and thousands of people came to see it. The blood reportedly kept running out for several days. Soon after more police came with orders to hack down the crucifix but each time they returned in failure under the claim that some force was preventing them from approaching it. The local communist press tried to explain the phenomena by claiming that there had been an accumulation of water in the wooden cross behind the metallic figure, and that once the bullet hit the metal, the water, which had turned red from the metal’s rust, must have seeped through. The crowds brought crosses with them that they set up beside it, prayed before it and dipped cloths in the miraculous blood. For days and nights they sang hymns as well as burned candles. Priests were absent in fear. Many atheists reportedly converted after seeing this.[50] At the very first opportunity the Soviets destroyed the bleeding Crucifix and all adjacent crosses. It was later claimed that a commission of experts had reported that the fluid coming out of the bullet hole was not blood. The people who had gathered there that day were later depicted as drunkards, fools and scum, and it was claimed that the kissing of the Crucifix had resulted in an outbreak of syphilis as well as mass robberies.[51]

Suppression of miracles

It was ideologically important for the government to suppress and disprove accounts of miracles that contradicted Marxist atheism. To this effect the government issued a decree on March 1, 1919 regarding “the complete liquidation of the cult of corpses and mummies”, which ordered the public exposure of saints’ relics in order to show them to be frauds (to counter the belief that the saints’ bodies were miraculously preserved). In 1918 there were even calls to outlaw the sacrament of the Eucharist on account of its miraculous transformation as believed by Orthodox and Catholic Christians.[29]

The body of St Sergius of Radonezh was exposed as fraudulent and the Soviet media eagerly spread this news that there was nothing but rotten bones and dust in his shrine. Revolution and the Church wrote: “Believers no longer weep, don’t fall into fits of hysteria, and don’t hold a grudge against the Soviet government anymore. They see there has been no blasphemy… Only an age-old fraud has been made naked in the eyes of the nation.”[46]

From the St Sergius-Trinity Monastery where these relics came from, an entirely different story was circulated that when the relics were exposed it was found that the saint’s body was in excellent condition (he had lived in the 14th century), and when the crowd of believers that had come there saw this they fell on their knees in prayer, while the Bolshevik commander was pulled off his horse and beaten by the crowd. A similar event occurred in the city of Vladimir when the relics of two saints were exposed and the doctor who had acted as medical state witness reconfirmed his faith according to his own testimony.[47]

There were a number of instances, however, where nothing but cloth and rotten bones was found. The exposure of Tikhon of Zadonskand some Novgorodian saints were examples of this. The anti-religious press after such instances would declare that the church had been deceiving the nation. Bishop Alexii of Novgorod later declared, however, that the church did not teach that the saints must necessarily be immune to decay or that non-corruption of the body was proof of sainthood.[47]

Stories of supernatural manifestations in the families of fanatical communists where some members were practicing Christian were allegedly common in the early post-1917 years.[48] The most common of such miracles reported were sudden renovations of family icons that had gone dark over years would suddenly shine with fresh colours as though newly painted before the eyes of the communist. Some of the communists converted back to the Church after such events.

The Soviet propaganda countered these claims by claiming that they were tricks created by priests and kulaks to dupe people.

The Sretenskaia church at the Sennoi marketplace in Kiev had two gold-plated domes that had for been completely tarnished after many years. These domes experienced a similar renovations one day when light shone so brightly from the domes that it was at first thought to be on fire, and a huge crowd gathered to see it with an atmosphere of religious euphoria. The light reportedly moved in patches around the dome for three days as they were progressively “renovated”. The local communist newspaper then printed two articles, one of them signed by members of the Academy of Sciences, which stated that the phenomenon was caused by a rare air wave containing a peculiar electric discharge. A witness claimed it later became known that the GPU had forced the Academy to say this, and that there were other gold-plated things in the area that were not similarly renovated.[49] Several months later the church was dynamited.

A similar event occurred at the church of the Holy Jordan, also in Kiev, which was also dynamited soon afterward.

One of the most famous of these supposed miracles occurred in the village of Kalinovka near Vinnitsa in the Ukraine. A detachment of mounted police had come to the village in order to close the local church, but they were met by hostile crowds. The crowds were too big for the police to force their way through and so they retreated.
