Our Lady of Fatima Arrives for the Synod

Our Lady of Fatima Arrives for the Synod


<< Where Will This Synod Take the Church? >>

This synod is likely to be an occasion of tremendous evil coming over the Church. As Bishop Athanasius Schneider said, the Working Document of the Synod is calculated to push an agenda contrary to Divine Law. OurLadyatSynod

The Fatima Center is asking Our Lady to stop or mitigate this threat. We have a noon procession every day with Our Lady’s Pilgrim Virgin statue along the arms of St. Peter’s Square, as a plea for Our Lady of Fatima to preserve us from the evils now threatening the Church. It must be no less moving to Our Lord and Our Lady than it is to us to see so many of the people whom we pass in our processions spontaneously join in honoring Our Lady of Fatima!

At other times throughout the day, the volunteers here are on the streets distributing literature about what is at stake in the outcome of the Synod. (Propositions for polygamy and ordaining women deacons were discussed yesterday.)

May Our Lady preserve us!


Joe O’Connell, who runs the Fatima Center in Cork, is currently in Rome for the Synod. He sent us the above report, which is also posted on the Fatima Center Facebook page, and asks for our prayers.

This replaces our Synod Special thread, so all synod-related matters should now be posted here.

    My son has shown me how to copy & paste I will try to use my new skill on Damien Thompsons latest article in the New Spectator.

      John, can your very, very clever son explain, through you, how to do that? I’ve been computerless and on i-pad for 6 weeks, and it’s so frustrating not to be able to share all the bad news.😨

        A slightly easier way is instead of pressing mail press copy. Go to Catholic Truth tap screen press paste and it will appear. Maybe try it on the latest Remnant article?

    An excellent article by Chris Ferrera summarising the Synod is on the Catholic Family News website

    I’ve heard a rumour that editor is thinking of closing the blog down in January. I wouldn’t blame her considering the inertia of bloggers!

    Christopher Ferrara’s article in the Remnant Newspaper is well worth reading. He makes a comparison between the Synod and Germany’s Third Reich.

    Did not most of us on this blog think that the Synod would end badly considering how the Pope stacked the synod in favour of the modernists.
    I agree it would be fantastic if the Consecration of Russia was done but did not ‘ Our Lady’ say it would be late (most people may think too late) both of us would probably agree it is not humanly possible for this Pope and all the Bishops in the world to do the
    “Consecration” in the present climate. I fear we may have a few years of persecution ahead. Why ‘God’ has chosen us to know the truth is ‘ God’s ‘ mystery most of us on this blog have been given (ten talent’s ) I pray that we all use them wisely in the next few years.

      I couldn’t agree more John.Given how bad things were up to the synod this is merely only another chapter off how bad things are and it is like you say unlikely that pope Francis will do the consecration.There always appears to be much speculating why can’t we just accept it will happen but it will be late and in the meantime keep the faith.If our lady or indeed our lord wanted us to know then we would know .

    Yes folks, but don’t you think we should BE OUT THERE evangelising? I think we very often keep our heads down which drives me nuts. Maybe we’re “all right jack” but we should be doing something positive as in the Legion of Mary of yore!

      I agree. Meet you at the corner of Sauchiehall Street and Rose Street tomorrow, 9.a.m. Let’s DO this!

    Thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread and to our previous Synod thread. We now await the Pope’s post-synodal statement, whatever form it takes – it is widely expected to be an Apostolic Exhortation, so we brace ourselves. When the statement is published, we will launch a thread to discuss it. In the meantime, with renewed thanks to all who contributed here, I’ll now close this thread.
