March 18th and “Great Prophecy of Medjugorje” – Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church’s Mysterious Integration into “Every facet of Russia’s armed forces”

“Medjugorje’s “Great Prophecy” 

Vatican’s most famous Mariologist, Rene Laurentine, discovered a tape recording that took place in October of 1981. In that recording the Visionaries tell the interviewing priest that the Queen of Peace told them “Russia will come to glorify God the most; the West will make modern progress but without God and will act like their own creator.” 

It is important to consider that this prophecy of the Virgin Mary was made at the time of the height of the Soviet Union’s  anti-religious aggression. Just six months before the prophecy, the communist state attempted to assassinate Pope John Paul II.

Today, if you can see the sign of the times, you will discover that these words, this prophecy, is unfolding before the world’s eyes in dramatic fashion. The West and the United States are turning aggressively against God while the mysterious rise of Christianity is rapidly attaching itself to the very fabric of Russian culture and society. The consequences of these opposing forces are not well understood but Vladimir Putin has strongly warned the world that ignoring the reality the importance of Christianity in Russia can and will lead to war.

WILL MARCH 18, 2021 Reveal a Clue about “Great Prophecy” 

Dan Lynch, author of  Medjugorje’s Ten Secrets: How to Prepare, writes: March 18 will be the first of Medjugorje visionary Mirjana Soldo’s annual apparitions, according to Our Lady’s new schedule, of only once per year on March 18, which is also Mirjana’s birthday. After her apparition on March 18, 2020, Mirjana announced that Our Lady would no longer be appearing to her on the second of the month, as she had in the past. After that apparition, Mirjana left the room in tears. 

Mirjana said on another occasion, “Only when the things contained in the secrets start to happen will the world understand why Our Lady chose March 18. The significance of the date will be clear.” You may learn more from my new book Medjugorje’s Ten Secrets: How to Prepare


The mysterious rise of Christianity continues to baffle the world elites.

From BBC: “Russian President Vladimir Putin wants marriage to be defined as the union of a man and woman in a revised constitution, ruling out gay marriage.It is among several constitutional amendments proposed by Mr Putin, which are set to be put to a public vote.The package includes a proclamation of Russians’ faith in God and a ban on giving away any Russian territory.”


Ushering in Armageddon  – Putin and Russia are set to defend its Christian traditions with its nuclear force. 

President Vladimir Putin recently attended the consecration of a colossal new Russian Orthodox cathedral dedicated to the Russian Armed Forces at Patriot Park about an hour’s drive from Moscow. Inside the church a gigantic fresco of the Virgn Mary dominates the landscape, while the stairways outside are made melted-down Nazi equipment captured by the Red Army in World War II.

Religion matters in Russia today, and the little known emergence of a Russia Orthodox Church-nuclear forces nexus poses vast and unforeseen consequences for the world.

While there is a growing contempt for Christianity by mainstream media and the ruling class in the United States, the exact opposite trend is happening in Russia – there is a powerful and clear return to its Christian Orthodox roots.

If end-times are ever to be ushered in,  I am convinced it will be a clash between a reckless, cancel culture obsessed  USA vs. the Russian state that is willing to fight a winnable nuclear war to preserve Russian Orthodoxy.  

This is not wild speculation.  Russian President Vladimir Putin has often warned the world of such risk.  

Putin told a group of reporters “that the threat of nuclear war should not be underestimated, saying it could result in the “collapse of the entire civilization and maybe our planet. The danger of the situation is being downplayed,”

In October 2018 the Russia President, in his typically blunt, wisecracking, yet menacing fashion, explained to reporters the consequences to aggressors if Russia were to be attacked by a nuclear first strike.   Framing his warning with biblical  overtones, Putin says: “An aggressor should know that vengeance is inevitable, that he will be annihilated. Whereas we would become the victims of their aggression, and as martyrs, will go to heaven – they will just end up dead, they won’t even have time to repent.” 

Adding weight to the apocalyptic scenario comes from Dimitry Adamsky’s groundbreaking book “Russian Nuclear Orthodoxy: Religion, Politics, and Strategy,  (Stanford University Press)  Adamsky’s book  brilliantly peels away the layers of the enigmatic and unexplored saga of how a nuclear priesthood has emerged in Russia. 

Dimitry Adamsky writes:   “A nuclear priesthood has arisen in Russia…the Russian Orthodox Church has been integrated into every facet of the armed forces to become a vital part of Russian national security, politics, and identity. 

The Russian Orthodox Church, Adamsky adds“has permeated the units and commands in charge of Russia’s nuclear forces and it is not inconceivable that the Russian military clergy might become future participants in decision making on matters of national security, and that de facto there might be two parallel chains of command.” 


In a review in Foreign Affairs of Adamsky’s fascinating book, Irina du Quenoy writes: “…the church has become a prominent presence throughout the entire military, but the nuclear branch stands out as the most imbued with clericalism. The church has built houses of worship on all of Russia’s nuclear bases, Orthodox icons grace nuclear weapons platforms, and commanders have increasingly incorporated religious ideas into their strategic thinking.”


Russia’s military and political leaders, including Vladimir Putin,  see themselves as the last defenders of Christianity on earth.  

Not long ago,  Patriarch Kirill warned a congregation  at Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral of the coming Armageddon.  “One must be blind not to see the approach of the terrible moments of history which John the Theologian spoke of in his Revelation.”   Krill warned of Earth imminently “slipping into the abyss of the end of history.”

The ROC  views  competition with Russia’s enemies, as battle with the Antichrist.  Alexander Dugin, arguably the Kremlin’s chief ideologist, calls Putin “katechon”, an Orthodox leader who protects Russia from  the “kingdom of the Antichrist”.  Dugin sees  the anti-christ as a manifestation of  “Western “globalisation, post-liberalism and post-industrial society”.

The ROC wants a strong and nuclear Russia so that “the sovereignty of the Orthodox way of life against satanic forces” can be preserved.”

Jakub Grygiel writes, Orthodoxy for the armed forces is not an ecclesiastical discourse; rather, it’s an instrument to inoculate the military against Western influence, psychological warfare, and perceived efforts at political subversion.”

Today,  the culture of the United States is dominated by a secular elite attached to nebulous progressive ideologies, rooted in anti-christian values.   Russian leadership views the construct of liberalism with disdain. Rather than seeing a “culture of tolerance” they see an aggressive adversary determined to march its progressive values into the heart of Moscow.   

If we are to believe Dimitry Adamsky’  premise, Russia’s theocratic military leadership sees a culturally progessive, anti-Christian United States quite literally as a “Satanic Force”.  Russia’s military leaders and the ROC undoubtedly  see the Anti-christ. 

With Biden launching attacks into Syria, seemingly out of nowhere,  a dangerous new world has moved to the center stage.

In March of 1984  Catholic Church says without hesitation that Pope John Paul II successfully completed the Consecration of Russia to Our Lady’s heart fulfilling the Blessed Mother’s wishes. Of course, not all agree. But suddenly does the mysterious rise of Christianity in Russia point to evidence that the prophecy of Fatima is unfolding and that the consecration of Russia did occur?   

The Queen of Peace at Medjugorje says her appearance at Medjugorje is the fulfillment of Fatima. This fact is fairly well known by those who follow Medjugorje but less well known is Medjugorje’s  mysterious Russian Prophecy. And it is this Russian prophecy that directly connects Medjugorje to Fatima.  At Fatima and Medjugorje the only country specifically mentioned in the Marian apparitions is “Russia” . This is not an insignificant fact. 

The rising tensions between Russia and the West will continue to dominate the news headlines . The origins of this conflict between the United States and Russia seemed to have come out of nowhere. But the Queen of Peace’s prophecy predicted in a stunningly accurate way the dramatic world events of today.

The prediction was revealed at the height of the Cold War in a quiet village called Medugorje in what was then Yugoslavia. 

In October of 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, according to the Vatican’s most famous Mariologist, Rene Laurentine,  in October of 1981 the Queen of Peace, in a message that can only be described as “prophetic” in nature said that “Russia would come to glorify God the most”… and that the West would  make modern progress but would turn away from God.

It seems impossible 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.

“Russia will come to glorify God the most” is this “The Great Prophecy” of Medjugorje?

World events seem to be unfolding in a way that lends strong evidence that  the Virgin Mary’s  prediction of a mysterious spiritual awakening is in fact coming true. What comes next in these volatile times is anybody’s guess.
