The Last 100 Years of the Fatima Apparitions Part One: A Vision of Hell10-15-2017Fr. Robert Seraph Aliunzi
This past Friday, Bishop Olmsted consecrated our diocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and here in our own parish, we had a special Rosary Rally which also concluded with the consecration of our parish to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. As we continue to dedicate this month of October to the rosary and to honoring our Mother Mary, I will also dedicate my following articles to her. I will do this in the context of her messages for Salvation and Peace in the world. In this article, I will share with you the homily of Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of the Archdiocese of San Francisco which he delivered on October 7, 2017 which I found very inspiring. Here he goes:
At this significant moment in world history, as we mark the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, understandably, much attention has been given to this supernatural phenomenon. I believe, though, that it is easy for us to get distracted by the sensational elements of this apparition: predictions of wars and disasters, a dancing sun, a vision of hell. We are easily intrigued with that part of the story, perhaps so much so that we miss the whole point of it, which, of course, is the message itself.READ MORE
