The Heavenly broadcast clues us in that we can anticipate the Renovation

      In today's editorial we commemorate the 81st anniversary of the final Fatima apparition in stressing what the Blessed Virgin Mary imparted to the visionaries that rainy day which climaxed with the sun dancing and strobing wildly in a phenomena referred to as the "Miracle of the sun." Many believe it will take a miracle to save civilization today, but we point to the fact that we doubt it is not a thrashing or elimination God has in mind for the new millennium, but rather a "Third Renovation for the Third Millennium" in which He will cleanse the earth as He has promised and as His Blessed Mother has foretold. But it is up to us to grab our weapons and stand firm in the trenches of goodness and virtue, manning our Rosaries.

Blessed Pope Benedict XI: the last Pope of Rome before the exile to Avignon and the Babylonian Captivity in the 14th century

     Early in the fourteenth century one could see that the king of France Philip IV was not going to leave well enough alone, interferring in ecclesial matters. He had come to blows with Pope Boniface VIII as we saw last week, but in the 194th successor of Peter, Benedict XI tried his best to reconcile and appease differences, but to little avail for his pontificate was cut short by a poison fig that many believe was caused by those who refused to comply with papal authority. It was the end of the Italian power within the papacy as "Captivity in Avignon" loomed on the horizon.

Blessed Pope Benedict XI Reconciler in the face of treason

Installment Seventy-six

"These are the times of Revelation and Sacred Scripture shall be fulfilled."

     Those are the words from Our Lady in the 230th message and which she reinforces in the 231st to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart. The Blessed Mother points out that the world has forgotten God's warnings, forgotten to place our trust in the infinite rather than finite things and people who leave us wanting and empty. Our Lady pleads and prompts us to return to all her Divine Son asks and fear not if we are in unison with His Sacred Heart and her Immaculate Heart.
