Did Our Lady of Fatima – not Donald Trump – achieve North Korean peace?editor
From The Remnant …
Last week President Trump received a scapular and a lesson on Fatima from Edward Baza Calvo, governor of Guam since 2011.
“About 165,000 people have taken a big sigh of relief since ten months ago the leader of North Korea was making pronouncements of the nuclear annihilation of our island,” says Gov. Calvo in the short clip below from PacificDailyNews.com. “And now we have, ten months later, a document paving the way–signed by both [Trump and Kim Jong-un]–to peace and denuclearization,”
A year ago, when this crisis was unfolding, the traveling Lady of Fatima had just come from Korea to Guam, and fifteen minutes after Trump signed the agreement with Kim Jong-un, the statue arrived at the house of Governor Calvo. Being Catholic, he said, “I don’t believe in coincidences.”
In gratitude to both Our Lady of Fatima and the U.S. President, Gov. Calvo handed Trump a scapular and told him that Catholics, such as Melania, would understand its significance.
COMMENT [Editor, The Remnant]…
Well, now we know he knows the rest of the story. What will happen next? God only knows. But as most of the human element of the Catholic Church have now betrayed their convenant with Almighty God, it remains to be seen who God will choose as recepient of His Grace to continue His work in the world. I have a feeling we might all be surprised at who from the highways will answer the call and come to the Lord’s feast.
Please pray for the conversion of President Donald Trump. And let’s also pray for the First Lady, that God will open her heart to the truth of the Church into which she was baptized.
May Our Lady of Fatima watch over them both, guide them and eventually open their hearts to the Way, the Truth and the Light. Unlikely? Perhaps, but with God’s grace anything is possible.
COMMENT [Editor, Catholic Truth]…
There’s really nothing left for me to say, except that the friend at the Fatima Center in Canada who sent me the link to the above report revealed that she had goosebumps reading it – share your reaction to the above astonishing account of Governor Calvo’s gift to President Trump.
That’s fascinating. I remember when it was in the news about Guam being a target for nuclear attacks from North Korea, and it was nail-biting stuff. To think that the governor was such a man of faith! I think everyone is wondering at how the tide turned completely with Trump and Kim Jong Un going from calling each other all the names of the day to signing a “peace” document and shaking hands. IMHO, it’s definitely down to more than human effort.
I included praying for Trump’s conversation to the Catholic Church and the First Lady’s return to the Faith in my prayers tonight, for the first time, after reading that Remnant report. It really is a “goosebumps” story!
I agree, it’s a “goosebumps” story, definitely!
May he wear it faithfully and come home to the Catholic Faith.
Hear hear! It would be wonderful if the Scapular brought Trump into the Church. Hopefully, that grace would help iron out some of his character flaws!
Yes, folks, let’s pray that great graces result from this. Trump is so hated by the hilariously misnamed “liberal left” that it would be just one more nail in his coffin if he did convert to Catholicism, but – happily – he takes no account of their criticisms anyway. Including this latest “firehose” of criticisms about illegal child migrants. I’ve just received this report and not had time to study, but looks interesting
In any case, no matter the truth, the brain-dead loony left want to hate Trump and nothing will change that. Except, of course, the power of the supernatural, so we continue to pray for the Consecration of Russia. Which reminds me…
I had an interesting chat with three Protestants yesterday, all concerned, rightly, about the state of the world.
When I mentioned Fatima and the Consecration, I asked them if they were pope, wouldn’t they forget about planting trees with Muslims and Jews and all the other gimmicky peace initiatives and instead, even if not entirely believing in it, think “I’ll give this Consecration of Russia business a whirl”… Immediate, unanimous response – a loud chorus: “NO!”
Let’s hope The Donald is more open to the Fatima Message.
I wonder if Donald Trump would be more open to the Fatima Message. I think he may be, especially now that he’s got the Brown Scapular and a fellow politician to answer his questions. Governor Calvo sounds like a really good man and a faithful Catholic.
That is a very helpful article, and highlights the truth that facts don’t seem to matter to the Trump/America/truth haters. But those of us who weren’t born yesterday have long known that the “news” departed from facts and truth many years ago.
However, the article left out, I think (rapid scan), something which has become a typical anarchist tactic: the children weeping at the border are alleged to be child actors!
The media here are having a field day with the “caged children” story. Photos make it obvious that these are not “cages” but fenced off enclosures, but the media hacks never let the truth get in the way of a good old attack on Trump.
He really does need to be a bit more savvy, though, in dealing with the media and not play right into their hands like this – separating children from families (if, in fact, that’s what happened) was obviously not a good idea. The media are now gloating at his about-turn, so for more than one reason, this was a very bad idea.
I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if at least some of the weeping children were actors. Not one bit.
Trump was in fact extremely savvy. Check this out: https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/06/on_immigration_congress_snoozes_trump_cruises.html
Also gives good background on where this ridiculous situation originated: in our corrupt, incompetent Congress.
WOW! We really do NOT get told the half of it. A very young relative said to me only yesterday that we cannot believe anything in the media in the UK.
Stick with Tucker Carlson, folks!
I thought of your claim about child actors when I came across this report about a father who says his daughter was never separated from her mother, but her photo has been shown in the media as if she’s a victim.
It’s not hard to get a photo of a crying child – you can see them at every supermarket check-out demanding sweets, crying their heart out if mum says “no!” LOL!
Yes, when the left resorts to outright fraud, it’s their admission that they have no argument. Pretty much a Bolshevik tactic. Highlighting this is the defection of a key and influential figure in the leftist/liberal camp, Alan Dershowitz, who is now advising President Trump on how to deal with the Muller witch-hunt.
Here’s another version of the same story: http://www.wnd.com/2018/06/migrant-mother-crying-girl-were-never-separated/?cat_orig=us
Don’t get me wrong – I’d love to believe that this whole thing was a fraud, that Trump couldn’t be so heartless, but why then did his wife and daughter get him to change his mind about the border policy? He himself spoke about not separating families. I must be missing something, not that that’s anything new LOL!
Pres. Trump was merely enforcing the existing law, which his new executive order overrules to allow families to stay together (that is, until the leftists get an injunction to stop it, because all they want is “catch and release” – i.e. let these people pour in and become Democrat voters sooner or later).
I was at a festive gathering today and when I quoted you to someone who mentioned the children/border, he laughed, wouldn’t believe me (that Trump was simply enforcing existing law). Seems the repetition of “Trump’s border policy to separate children from their families” has worked its magic.
Now, YOU take a holiday – everyone else has gone on strike, and I’m about to join them, so you take a well earned break and we’ll meet back here when the rain, wind, snow and ice return!
Seriously, I couldn’t manage this blog without you…
Have your festively ignorant acquaintance read this:
Let’s pray that this is a step towards the Consecration of Russia, because even though the Korean situation appears to have improved (and I say appears – you never know with Kim Jong-un) nothing will fully improve until the Consecration of Russia is done.
Sadly, I received a mailing from the Fatima Centre yesterday http://www.fatima.org. Their donations are badly down and they have had to lay fourteen staff off. Things are really bad, apparently. It would be such a shame if, at this critical point in time, the Fatima Centre was forced to close down through lack of funding by the faithful. It makes me wonder how many Catholics actually realise the importance of the full Fatima message.
I totally agree – it’s only when the Consecration takes place that we will really see an improvement in the world. In fact I was thinking when I first read the article that this is a just little taste of what will happen when the Consecration takes place.
I just visited the link you gave and there isn’t anything that I can find about needing donations desperately. If they’re that desperate, they should have a notice on their home page.
I wouldn’t like to see them close and I don’t expect they will, but maybe this is chickens coming home to roost, as they’ve always asked for money all the time and it can be off-putting. I find prolife groups do the same thing. Maybe they need to rely on volunteers instead of paying salaries. That would cut costs for a start. Everyone is strapped for cash these days, we’re living in a time of austerity, so I don’t think it’s because Catholics don’t realise the importance of the Fatima Message, just that they are ordinary people, who are not flush with money.
Yes, I noticed that there is nothing on the website as well. Perhaps something will go up later. The notification I got was a letter by post. I know what you mean about charities keep asking for money, but then in my experience, if you don’t ask, you don’t get. I know there is a school of thought which believes that if an apostolate is a true work of God then the money will always be there, come what may, but I also think that such apostolates are given to us as graces, and like any grace freely offered, if the response is lacking, or if it is neglected, it can be removed and perhaps not offered again.
As for volunteers, I work for a charity and I know for a fact that good volunteers are virtually impossible to get these days. It seems that people are even more strapped for time than they are for cash.
It’s an amazing story no doubt about that, but I worried a bit about this comment in Michael Matt’s “Comment”:
But as most of the human element of the Catholic Church have now betrayed their convenant with Almighty God, it remains to be seen who God will choose as recipient of His Grace to continue His work in the world.
Maybe I’ve got the wrong end of the stick but that sounds like the Holy Spirit won’t be working through the Catholic Church any more, and use Donald Trump instead. Doesn’t sound right, somehow!
I think Michael Matt means that God might use someone like Donald Trump since the popes have not done what they were asked to do, the Consecration of Russia.
However, maybe Mr Matt is maybe forgetting that Our Lady said that the Pope would consecrate Russia “but it would be late.”
I’d have to admit, I never took Rocket Man’s sabre-rattling very seriously, and I don’t think President Trump did either, since he intimidated him at his own game. The analysis of this whole dust-up that appealed to me most was an article last year speculating that Rocket Man’s strings were being pulled from behind the scenes by Putin, who wanted to see how President Trump would react.
I think it is truly wonderful, though, that (a) Gov. Calvo is a faithful Catholic who takes Fatima very seriously, and (b) President Trump now has a scapular to wear. Hopefully Mrs. Trump will teach him some devotions to go with it!
YOU may never have taken Rocket Man’s sabre-rattling very seriously but I remember they took it seriously in Guam, LOL!
I found the story about the Scapular wonderfully uplifting. Here’s hoping!
I always thought that “Little Rocket Man” was hilarious, LOL!
It seems that the Fatima Centre is incorporated under the name “The National Committee for the National Pilgrim Virgin of Canada” (NPV). There has also been changes in staff, Fr Kramer who was a friend and close collaborator of Fr. Gruner since they were seminarians had been invited to address the Fatima Conference in California in September, but was very recently dis-invited. Louie Verrechio, another invited speaker, suffered the same fate shortly after posting my article critical of Cardinal Burke’s Fatima speech at the Rome Life Forum
Coralie Graham, who worked side-by-side with Fr. Gruner for over three decades and was editor of The Fatima Crusader for more than a quarter century, was abruptly shown the door a short while ago. Of all Father’s staff, she was probably the closest in thinking to him”
I wonder if this would account for the loss of funds?
Editor: to answer your final question – hardly. God does not punish fidelity. Coralie Graham excepted (since I’ve not heard that she has left the Center and that may be part of their forced slimming down due to financial constraints), the people you name and the links you posted are unacceptable here. Thus, I have removed the links you posted which are all sedevacantist sites. I think it is very clear from our House Rules – and I have injected requests in your posts in the past – that we do not permit the promotion of sedevacantism here, in any way, shape or form. Similarly, the two people to whom you refer as being uninvited to Fatima Center events – Louie Verrechio and Fr Kramer – have taken public positions of opposition to the legitimacy of the election of Pope Francis, so we are not remotely interested in them. Please comply with our House Rules when you submit posts. Thank you.
Well, Papa Francis didn’t waste any time joining in the universal condemnation of Trump’s separation of migrant children from their families at the border. Like everyone else, once children are born, the Pope is all for taking care of them. It’s while they are in their mother’s womb that he doesn’t appear to give a toss.
If only he’d spoken out prior to and during the Irish abortion referendum. But let’s not be too harsh on him yet – let’s wait to see if he unequivocally condemns that referendum outcome when he visits the ironically named World Meeting of Families in Dublin in August.
Do NOT hold your breath.
The awful thought crossed my mind that if the Fatima Centre did close, then perhaps it’s because it has done its work and that people haven’t responded sufficiently to the warnings. Perhaps the chastisement from Russia, warned of by Sr Lucia, will be sooner than we think: https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/977380/Russia-poses-imminent-threat-war-UK-new-head-the-British-Army-General-Mark-Carleton-Smith
Sister Lucia’s words to Fr Fuentes: “Tell them, Father, that many times the Most Holy Virgin told my cousins Francisco and Jacinta, as well as myself, that many nations will disappear from the face of the earth. She said that Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation.” . . .
That is a frightening thought, but you could be right. It’s hard to find a priest who takes Fatima seriously, never mind bishops and popes. It’s a monumental scandal.
I remember, at one of his Rome Conferences, at a time when Russia was considered to be benign, no longer a threat, Father Gruner made a number of statements about Russia’s intentions – anything but benign – and finished by saying that these were not his opinions, in each instance just given, he was quoting from newspaper reports, so it was all out there in the public domain even then.
Thanks to the superficial journalism here, reporters and commentators only see what they want to see, and they wanted to see Putin as a nice guy, reformed, and Russia no longer a threat.
As you say, Our Lady’s warning that Russia would be the instrument of chastisement unless converted (and that would come about through the Consecration) holds good. She’s not given to either exaggeration or fake news!
I think the response to Fatima across the board has been poor – hence the state of the world today. Sr Lucia also said “Father, the most Holy Virgin is very sad because no one has paid any attention to Her Message, neither the good nor the bad. The good continue on their way, but without giving any importance to Her Message. The bad, not seeing the punishment of God actually falling upon them, continue their life of sin without even caring about the Message. But believe me, Father, God will chastise the world and this will be in a terrible manner. The punishment from Heaven is imminent.”
We’re trying to maintain a First Saturday group (traditional Latin Mass, Rosary, Confession, 15 mins silent meditation on the rosary) in a busy Inner London parish and yet so few show up . . .
As for those who still toe the Vatican party line ‘consecration’s been done’ etc, I think they will have a lot to answer for. I was sent a booklet from the Carmel at Coimbra, written by a Sister Maria Celina de Jesus Crucificado, OCD. Most of it is quite predictable, taking the Vatican party-line on Fatima.
However, even in a booklet like this, which appears to have been written to conform to a certain agenda, I felt that Heaven had allowed something to be inadvertently revealed, which appears to contradict that which has been written before. On page 45, the following is stated:-
“It was in the year 2003, on 26th May. I went with her (Sister Lucia) to the lower choir in order to take a photograph of her with the image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary which had just been given to us. It is this photograph which has been used for the cover of this booklet. When I had taken the photograph, Sister Lucia continued to gaze at the Image. I did not disturb her. Then, turning to me, she said anxiously: “Our Lady is crying!!!” I think that, thanks to her extraordinary purity, her “ingenuousness”, she who had been the recipient of so many visions that no-one else had seen, thought at that moment that I, too, could see what she saw. And I, thinking that her statement was a question, said “No, she’s not”. I saw that she looked ‘caught out’, so to speak, like a child whose mother finds her stealing the jam! I said nothing. I thought that I should not ask any questions. I have not spoken of this incident until now. And I wished that that particular image should watch over her mortal remains with her motherly gaze until they were due to be taken to the Cathedral in Coimbra.”
If Our Lady knew that Her wishes had been fulfilled; that the Consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart had been accomplished in 1984 – why did She reveal Herself crying to Sister Lucia in 2003?
These tears of Our Lady, witnessed by Sister Lucia, and unwittingly revealed by Sister Maria Celina de Jesus Crucificado, are surely yet another sign to humanity of the chastisements that are awaiting us if we don’t fully carry out Our Lady’s requests.
I have a recollection of reading that before about Our Lady’s tears – it is probably from one of your previous posts because that’s where I learn most of my information about Fatima, apart from the Fatima Centre directly. Your posts on Fatima are fantastic, and you have also nailed the lies of Medjugorje, so keep up the great work!
I agree with you completely about people not paying attention to the full Fatima Message but the blame has to lie with the hierarchy for that. The only mention of Fatima by them or in parishes is about prayer and penance, not the Third Secret or the Consecration of Russia. I think if the issues were given a higher profile in dioceses, more Catholics would pay attention.
Here is a report on the South Korean President – a Catholic devoted to Our Lady – which someone mentioned on the Remnant blog. I Googled it and found this very interesting report.
Not a mention of this in any of the news reports about South Korea, although there’s been no shortage and the media people are usually looking for different angles. Obviously not interested in any Catholic worth the name.
Thank you for posting that – I was completely unaware of it. Although it did bring to mind the fate of a former Catholic President of South Vietnam, Ngo Dinh Diem, who was betrayed by President Kennedy and assassinated 20 days before him.
We should pray for President Moon, as he will surely be the target of paid agitators (that is, Communists).
Here’s a thorough take-down of the impending Youth Synod scam, highlighting with ever-increasing urgency the need for the restoration of the Church through Our Lady’s requests.
That link leads to a report about the Gosport hospital scandal – and I can’t find anything about the Youth Synod on that site.
Lily, it is there. Just keep on scrolling down and you will find it.
thank you for that – I had been clicking on the links to the left hand side of the page! I’ve now found it and read it and was shocked at the “hidden in plain sight” rainbow flag, and this passage:
“And so, with yesterday’s release of the instrumentum laboris for the Youth Synod, the world now encounters official Catholic online materials featuring a youth draped in a rainbow flag and the inclusion for the first time ever in an official Church document of the ideologically loaded ”LGBT” terminology.”
I am utterly horrified at this. It is shocking to think that perhaps thousands of young people will attend this event and be misled. It is very interesting to read the bit about the young people who asked for the traditional Mass in their submissions, but were completely ignored.
This is the devil at work, yet again. It’s petrifying.
It is absolutely shocking that the Vatican document on the youth synod is using the language of the LGBT brigade. As one questioner put it at a press conference on 19 June: “The Holy See has never used the acronym “LGBT” in a document before… because the Church “does not classify people according to their sexual orientation.” Precisely.
The excuse given is weak, to say the least. I’ve said it before and, no doubt, will have to say it again – any churchman who uses this sort of language, created by people indulging in this unnatural behaviour for the purpose of normalising it, throws a huge question mark over his own moral integrity – at all levels.
Keep praying it’s a God who hears you not Don Trump
Not “a” God – the ONLY God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
I’ve not posted your other several submissions because I’m really not sure what you are about. I’ve visited your site and cannot work out if you are a Catholic, a Baptist, an atheist with a warped sense of humour, or what. For that reason, I’m going to moderate your comments before they appear. So, be patient – I will release those which contribute to our discussions – the rest will disappear into cyber space. I’m a busy lassie, so please be patient. I WILL get to them as soon as possible.
Short time later…
I have now found a page where you describe yourself as a “Catholic Christian” – well that’s interesting. Wrong. But interesting just the same.
There IS only one kind of “Christian” – Catholics. As the convert from Anglicanism, Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman put it, Catholicism IS Christianity. Here’s the exact quote: Christ has so willed it that we should get at the truth, not by ingenuous speculations, reasonings, or investigations of our own, but by teaching. The Holy Church has been set up from the beginning as a solemn religious fact… as a picture, a revelation of the next world, as itself the Christian Dispensation.” (PSii, 66).
So it makes absolutely NO sense to call ourselves “Catholic Christians” – it’s like saying I’m a “Scottish Scotswoman.” To say “I’m a Catholic” IS to say “I’m a Christian”. I hope you are not one of those touchy types who sink into an interminable bad mood at the slightest (perceived) criticism or (well meant) correction. If so, this is not the blog for you. Only strong souls survive here. So, here’s hoping that you are our newest addition! 😀
Welcome to our humble blog!
Lighten up I live here. Why are you so up tight? Call cell me 727 403 1716. You are too chicken to do so. You don’t know everything…
But let’s talk out loud n the phone…
My blog is not heavy… God speaks with a whisper. He is in ahis creation. Have you heard Him Yet??? My point is fun daily Florida life , nothing heavy. I’m not insecure and don’t need to prove anything. Except that you will not call dare ya.
My point of my blog is this : there is beauty where I live in daily life where God is present. He’s here anyhow.
Oh yah you are too chicken to call Florida USA
Not “too chicken” just too poor, LOL!
You can’t afford a phone call???
Editor: I think Lily was joking. I can afford the call, not the time. I haven’t time to ring friends with whom I have plenty in common, so why would I ring someone who lives at the other end of the world, with whom I have very little, if anything in common. I love a good debate, but not on the telephone. You book into a Glasgow hotel and ring to meet up. Howzabout THAT for a deal?
You’re chicken I’m calling it . What do you mean by poor??? Nah, most are not poor and that is a line of bull
Editor: we do not permit name-calling here or nasty personal remarks – please read our house rules before posting any more comments. And unless you are privy to Lily’s bank statements, you cannot know whether or not she is poor, so – how can I put this politely… O yes… mind, not only your manners, but your own business [the rule about nasty personal remarks doesn’t apply to me… 😀 ]
Editor: in case Lily’s gone AWOL, allow me…
Poor – a polite way of saying “I don’t want to phone you”.
Now, either engage with one of our topics, in a truly Catholic spirit, or … don’t. In case you choose “don’t”, I’ll say “goodbye” now.
LOL! That’s a great definition of poor, editor.
I would have answered just that a poor person doesn’t have money to spare, to waste on long distance telephone calls just to argue about something they could argue about on the blog.
Ok also if we show you a beauty’s sunset , that’s not holy enough but. God made that.
I hate Trump
Editor: that makes you NOT a Catholic. Not remotely. Check out 1 John 4:20… “Whoever claims to love God but hates his brother, is a liar. For, how can you love God, whom you cannot see, but hate your brother whom you can see?” And if your reply is that you hate him because he is your enemy or somehow an enemy, there’s always Christ’s reminder that we must love our enemies, do good to those who persecute us. There’s not a lot of that stuff around – plenty of so-called Catholics who immerse themselves in pious talk, pious activities of various kinds, but, whatever you do, don’t annoy them. Bang! Wollop! That’s, sadly, you, Jeanne – you appear to want to talk the talk, as they say, judging by your blog, but if you hate anyone, then it’s all just dust. Oops! I need to go and “lighten up”, now, don’t I?
Wanna skype??? On our July 4???? Or see a Skype of our fireworks you’d have to stay up late
Editor: thanks, but no thanks. I don’t DO Skype and I hate fireworks. Thanks, though, for your kind offer.
You sound like you read mainstream media. Try Breitbart for a change: http://www.breitbart.com You might get a more balanced view of Trump and his policies. Otherwise, you’ll end up like the puerile critics of Trump in England who have to resort to imbecilic behaviour like this: https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-trump-blimp/uk-protesters-inflate-snarling-orange-trump-blimp-to-mock-u-s-president-idUKKBN1JM21R
MANY PRACTICING CATHOLICS don’t know what the Brown Scapular is; what makes anybody think Melania Trump will know WHAT, or ABOUT Scapular promises are, let alone the connection between Fatima & the Brown Scapular.
We are merely reporting what Edward Baza Calvo, governor of Guam since 2011 said to Donald Trump. He seemed to think Melania would know something about the scapular – and who knows, maybe the gift of one was all she needed to prompt her to investigate…
Let’s all pray to that end…
