CATECISMO DA IGREJA CATÓLICA:
2666. Mas o nome que tudo encerra é o que o Filho de Deus recebe na sua encarnação: JESUS. O nome divino é indizível para lábios humanos mas, ao assumir a nossa humanidade, o Verbo de Deus comunica-no-lo e nós podemos invocá-lo: «Jesus», « YHWH salva» . O nome de Jesus contém tudo: Deus e o homem e toda a economia da criação e da salvação. Rezar «Jesus» é invocá-Lo, chamá-Lo a nós. O seu nome é o único que contém a presença que significa. Jesus é o Ressuscitado, e todo aquele que invocar o seu nome, acolhe o Filho de Deus que o amou e por ele Se entregou.
2667. Esta invocação de fé tão simples foi desenvolvida na tradição da oração sob as mais variadas formas, tanto no Oriente como no Ocidente. A formulação mais habitual, transmitida pelos espirituais do Sinai, da Síria e de Athos, é a invocação: «Jesus, Cristo, Filho de Deus, Senhor, tende piedade de nós, pecadores!». Ela conjuga o hino cristológico de Fl 2, 6-11 com a invocação do publicano e dos mendigos da luz (14). Por ela, o coração sintoniza com a miséria dos homens e com a misericórdia do seu Salvador.
2668. A invocação do santo Nome de Jesus é o caminho mais simples da oração contínua. Muitas vezes repetida por um coração humildemente atento, não se dispersa num «mar de palavras», mas «guarda a Palavra e produz fruto pela constância». E é possível «em todo o tempo», porque não constitui uma ocupação a par de outra, mas é a ocupação única, a de amar a Deus, que anima e transfigura toda a acção em Cristo Jesus.
MARY: All must read the story of the three children, of the appearances and of my requests. There is also the great promise, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph”. It will be late, but Russia will be consecrated.
10. A Summary of Teaching
Dec 30th, 2014
I have raised up these locutions and in these few years, many have seen their value. This was to prepare their hearts and show them that my words will guide them. Filled with this light, they know much about human history. I have clearly taught the following:
Human history is a battle for souls and cannot be understood merely by reason.
This battle is between light and darkness. The great victory of Jesus took place on the cross.
For 2000 years, Satan has regrouped his forces and has put his plan in place through human beings who cooperate with him.
I foresaw that this battle would come to its greatest moments, so I appeared at Fatima to defeat Satan.
This defeat has obviously not happened because the responses to my requests were not lived out, causing the world to be plunged into a greater war and then constant conflicts.
Mankind is now entering a very dangerous time. The 100th anniversary of Fatima is a signal moment. Keep your eyes on that date. It can still be a moment of great victory.
I will continue to speak each day in the coming year. I will not hold back my words. My people need to know the secrets of my heart and its desires.
Now, I must take you on a new path, a road of strength and fortitude, a road of firmness and fidelity.
In the beginning, many will be confused wondering why many opportunities have been cut off. This is the first stage. Then, they will see that the wounds to society are even deeper and that life itself is endangered. This will be the progression of events in the next few years leading up to the 100 years of Fatima revelations.
Mankind need not walk that path. Another is available, a true path to peace, the path of Fatima. All must read the story of the three children, of the appearances and of my requests. There is also the great promise, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph”. It will be late, but Russia will be consecrated.
Do not wait. Consecrate yourself and your family. Read. Learn. Live the Fatima message. Fatima is God’s gift, the short cut, the easy way. Fatima is filled with my love and my tenderness. I visited the earth to protect you. I spoke so you might listen. I gave signs so you would believe. I did all of this for you. Please, open my Fatima gift.
Comment: The Church must fully open the Fatima gift but you can open your gift immediately.
8. The Blessings of the 100th Anniversary
Dec 28th, 2014
As the new year begins, the events will happen slowly. Most important, people will not recognize their importance or how these events prepare the way for others. The events will be new and surprising sources of unrest and breakdowns.
Even as it becomes evident that this new reality will not pass quickly, people will still not grasp the importance of this year. Only toward the end of the year will the events take place that will seriously change the existing structures. Even in these cases, people will not see clearly. They will believe that the change is temporary and can be rolled back.
Only as the year ends, will people see the decisiveness of these events. Even here, their full force will not have been released, for there will be the years leading up to the 100th anniversary of Fatima.
I continually see these coming years in the light of that anniversary. A while ago, the world focused on 2000 and the new millennium. Human life moved into the new millennium without any serious change. The 100th anniversary of Fatima will be quite different because I will not abandon my children or my Church.
Comment: Our Lady speaks of new difficulties that are ahead as well as the special blessings of Fatima in 2017.
6. New Powers Flooding Forth
Dec 26th, 2014
Some powers that shake the existing order have already been released. These prepare the way. They occupy and distract mankind who then cannot see the greater difficulties which lie ahead. Currently, the world focuses upon the external threats of terrorism and Russia, while totally ignoring the internal problems of morality, abortion (which kills far more than all the terrorists) and spending.
2015 will see not just the continuation and expansion of the 2014 problems, but new powers that break forth. These are more internal to economic systems and the daily life, new leaks and new breakdowns in society, new divisions among people. Governments will be exhausted, unable to adequately respond. The 2014 strains upon their resources will have weakened their ability.
All will stretch and stretch until the resources cannot stretch any more. At that moment, comes the breakthrough, the flooding where no one suspected, for who can foresee the path of a flood?
What voices will be raised to give light. Who will be able to guide the world on these dark hours? In this very darkness, my light will shine. Do not wait. Time spent in devotion prepares the soil. The effects in coming together in my name are indispensable.
Comment: Our Lady does not speak of external causes but internal difficulties built into our systems.
5. The Spurned Gift of Fatima
Dec 25th, 2014
As the days and the months stretch forth, the mysteries will be seen by all. In the next few years, leading up to the 100th anniversary of Fatima, all will be revealed. The mysteries of evil buried within human history and human hearts will slowly come to the surface.
In the beginning, many will see these events in the old perspective. However, as they continue to surface, the eyes of many will be opened, especially the eyes of the Church and of the Holy Father. It is no coincidence that these events will occur as the anniversary approaches.
Should not this 100th anniversary (1917-2017) be a great time of rejoicing, a time when the Fatima gift is poured out in its fullness? That was my plan. This entire century was meant to be 100 years of blessings, all leading up to the anniversary. A blessing that has been rejected becomes an accusation. A gift spurned becomes a great issue.
If the Church and the world had only listened, if they had fully welcomed the Fatima gift, there would have been no World War II, no atomic bomb, no arms race, no Cold War. Russia would have been converted. A great period of peace would have begun and the whole world would know that the 100th anniversary would become a time of the greatest blessings.
Now, the anniversary looms on the horizon as an unfulfilled promise, rejected by those who should have had faith. What will I do? What will happen in these next 2 ½ years? This is not settled. However, the quicker the Church fully responds to Fatima, and as devotion to the Woman Clothed With the Sun multiplies, the blessings will come. Otherwise, Fatima remains a gift that is still rejected.
Comment: Our Lady gives a clear timetable, an explanation of the causes of twentieth century
destruction and a path to peace.
4. One Hundred Years of Fatima
Dec 24th, 2014
When the waters burst forth, who will tell them where to go? They will have a mind of their own, going where Satan has plotted for so long. They will be released at different times and different places. Such will be the coming year of 2015.
I will plot out this year for you. In the early months, new flood waters will break through. There will be human responses that seemingly work for a time limiting the effects. It is only in the latter months of the year that the great floods come and continue for the first half of 2016.
By July 2016, the world will see what has happened. On July 13, 2016 will begin the one hundredth year of my speaking about the consecration of Russia. How important will be that year, leading up to the one hundredth anniversary of my appearing at Fatima (2017).
As these flood waters rise, let the voice of Fatima grow louder in your ears. What other voice should you listen to?
Comment: To speak and not to be heeded for 100 years is being very patient.
3. The Year 2015
Dec 23rd, 2014
See what springs forth, surprising waters which no one can imagine. These waters are still hidden and can only be explained when they come to light and are seen by all. I do not hold back my words but speak as clearly as possible.
2014 has been a year of turmoil, of the appearance of many evils. However, life has continued on. The struggles are confined to certain areas of the world or to certain parts of society. The protecting walls built by man to assure a normal life have remained in place. There have been no breakthroughs.
2015 will be quite different. Even in the first six months of the year, new and different events will break through. However, not to the extent that life is totally disrupted. It will seem like these problems have been adequately responded to so that normal life can continue, even though limited.
In the Fall, however, the great problems will break forth and all will see that human life has seriously changed. This will be the mood as the year comes to an end.
All of these events will serve a purpose. They will awaken the Church that it needs my help and those voices which have been declaring that the messages of Fatima must be studied more closely will be given a greater hearing.
Comment: 2015 will awaken the world to the importance of Fatima.
2. Manifesting Her Presence
Dec 22nd, 2014
All history is in my hands. I know the movements of every heart and of every event. I see all that has happened and all that will happen. Nothing is determined. Events are shaped by human decisions. This was God’s plan from the beginning.
I am not a passive spectator, who merely watches the drama unfold. I am the Woman Clothed With the Sun who has power to intervene. I am part of human history. I was born into the world and lived in the world as everyone else.
My role now is more extensive and, in the Father’s plan, I must assume greater and greater responsibilities for the safety and protection of humanity. I have been announcing this plan for years but now it its taking place, right before your eyes.
As one event leads to another, as one problem begets greater ones, you can see the importance of my coming on the scene, of making myself known, of lifting up my special son and of manifesting my presence all over the world.
Right now, I am only interested in you, the reader. I have led you to these locutions and I want to give you extraordinary blessings. Others, who do not know me, will receive later. You will receive now. You do not understand everything but you want to receive. You have read all of my promises. You have studied my ways. Most important, you believe. Why should I delay? You are prepared to receive.
Close your eyes. I am with you. Experience my presence. Do not move. Stay still until the gift is complete. Repeat this often. Each time, I will act more deeply within you.
Comment: Our Lady does not wait. You, O reader, are ready to receive. Do so, again and again.
1. Today Vanishing Into Tomorrow
Dec 21st, 2014
Human life takes place within time. One moment opens out into the next in an endless series. No one can stop this process because God has created time. Man, therefore, is helpless. He can record time and assign a date to today, but he cannot stop today from vanishing and giving way to tomorrow.
A person who appreciates the passing nature of earth and the short moment of every life can grasp what I am saying. A world which lives by faith understands that no one can hold on to today. No one can build a permanent earthly city.
A world without faith is foolish and spends all of its time trying to build permanency upon the shifting sands of time. Satan uses this foolishness to build his cities and gather his armies. He has brought human history to this point where humanity has left behind the light of eternity and has chosen the darkness of time.
How many false beliefs flow from this foolishness, as if time heals all wounds, or that problems will be solved in due time, or that time is a cycle in which darkness is always followed by light and problems always have solutions.
My message is clear. Time is not an inevitable cycle. Time is a story, with man’s free will playing an important role. Time is a road and man has chosen the road of darkness. The light does not come automatically, like day following night. At this present time, humanity is walking a road that is so dark, it will lead to permanent and disastrous changes to earth. I cannot and will not allow that to happen but man must stop thinking about the passing goals of time and begin to seek the changeless riches of eternity. To act otherwise is complete and total foolishness. The greatest fools are the rich and the powerful.
Comment: Man’s thinking is totally confused when he takes no account that everything on earth passes away.
7. The Moment of the Great Battle
Dec 20th, 2014
The army of darkness gathers on the horizon. However, the daylight has not yet arrived and they cannot be seen. This allows the forces of evil to spread out according to their plan. They take strategic positions so that when the attacks begin there will be no escape. They will capture and control. Their goal is to inflict sufferings upon mankind, so that despair and helplessness seize the hearts of all. In this way, their victory will be more complete. They know what they wish to accomplish. They want to cut mankind off from the Creator and to cast everyone into disbelief. They are not interested in capturing material earth but in claiming immortal souls.
They want to destroy man’s spirit and cut him off from his life-giving relationship to Jesus and the power of the resurrection. Once that occurs, he will have successfully overcome the defeat he suffered when Jesus died on the cross. How he has waited for this moment! Through all the ages, he has planned this. Anyone believing that these are normal times and normal problems, is deceived. This is the moment of the great battle, when Satan uses his entire army. The battle will be fierce. The struggle an immense one. The victory great; but only with my help can anyone be saved.
Comment: Wake up! Future events will not just be the usual problems. A spiritual war will break out with grave consequences for human history.
