Medjugorje and Fatima, what Father Gabriele Amorth really thought of, the most famous exorcist of the millennium.
Father Gabriele Amorth, the well-known exorcist of Rome, today in Paradise, interviewed by “Medjugorje-Turin” answered this way about the relationship between Fatima and Medjugorje.
Question – You have repeatedly stated that you see in Medjugorje a continuation of Fatima. How do you explain this relationship?
In my opinion, the relationship is very close. The apparitions of Fatima constitute the great message of Our Lady for our century. At the end of the First World War, he affirms that, if he had not followed what the Virgin recommended, under the pontificate of Pius XI a worse war would have begun.
And there was. Then he went on to ask for the consecration of Russia to his Immaculate Heart, if not … It was perhaps done in 1984: late, when Russia had already spread its mistakes in the world.
Then there was the prophecy of the third secret. I do not stop, but I only say that it has not yet been realized: there is no sign of conversion of Russia, no sign of sure peace, no sign of the final triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
In these years, especially before this Pope’s trips to Fatima, the message of Fatima had been almost shelved; the calls of the Madonna were left unanswered;Meanwhile, the general situation of the world worsened, with a continuous increase in evil.
Drop in faith, abortion, divorce, dominant pornography, race to the vain forms of occultism, especially magic, spiritualism, satanic sects. A new push was essential.This came from Medjugorje, and then from other Marian apparitions all over the world.
But Medjugorje is the pilot appearance. The message points, as in Fatima, on the return to Christian life, to prayer, to sacrifice (there are many forms of fasting!).
It definitely aims, as in Fatima, on peace and, as in Fatima, contains dangers of war. I believe that with Medjugorje the message of Fatima has resumed its strength and there is no doubt that pilgrimages to Medjugorje integrate pilgrimages to Fatima, and have the same goals …
The Medjugorje message of 25.8.1991 explicitly refers to Fatima
“Dear children! Also today I call you to prayer, now as never before, when my plan began to come true. Satan is strong and wants to block the plan of peace and joy and make you think that my Son is not strong in his decisions. Therefore I invite you, dear children, to pray and to fast even more strongly. I invite you to give up during nine days, so that with your help everything that I want to accomplish through the secrets that I started in Fatima will be realized. I invite you, dear children, to understand the importance of my coming and the seriousness of the situation. I wish to save all souls and present them to God. Therefore, let us pray that everything I have begun will be fully realized. Thank you for responding to my call. “
