and Our Lady’s role in its downfall in Russia through Her intervention in preventing the assassination of St John Paul II and then through St John Paul’s consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

 

However, let us not focus  on these fantastic and prophetic and world changing events, to the exclusion of the deeply personal message that Our Lady of Fatima brings to us, Her children.  

 

God wants to give us an important message.  But to avoid that message overcoming us with fear He chooses to give us the message through Mary.  In doing so we understand that warnings are given our of love, and as a sign of His never ending love for us.   God knows that we are more likely to respond to Our Mothers pleadings than we are to stern warnings, and that it is only Love that can convert us.    In the experience of Her tender love and confidence we therefore do not become discouraged when we hear Her tell us that many souls were being lost to hell because there is no one praying for poor sinners.  We understand that Our Lady is calling us to make sacrifices for them.  When we understand  Her love we are much more likely to respond to Her call to wear the scapular, to pray the rosary and to make sacrifices for poor sinners.  

We are also much more likely to respond to Her call for processions since  they bring upon us great blessings from God.  We are going to have a beautiful procession on Sunday 12th May at St Colman’s Church Balaclava.  We invite you to bring a flower that can be placed at the end of the procession. Please do join us for a rich afternoon of prayer, to discover more about Fatima to enjoy a beautiful procession and to benefit from a wonderful  Mass and Homily with the highly  esteemed Bishop Peter Elliott. 

St Colman’s is a beautiful Church close to Balaclava station.  There is a tram right on the door (Trams3,3A, 16: stop 39), and ample parking at the rear of the Church, that is just 5 minutes drive off Dandonong Road, and Nepean Highway. 

A Heart of Love

Our late Holy Father, Saint John Paul II  said in his visit to Fatima in 1991, “The new condition of the people and of the Church is still dangerous and unstable. Therefore, Mother, we need you and ask that you reveal your love to each one of your children and to the nations” (cf. May 13)


Our Lady of Fatima is  associated with some of the most amazing  occurrences of the last century.  Firstly, there was the miracle of the sun in which on October 13th, 2017 everyone in a crowd of approximately 100,000 witnessed an incredible solar phenomenon.  This phenomenon was witnessed by both believers and atheists alike and was so dramatic that everyone thought it was going to be the end of the world.  The effect on those who witnessed this miracle was profound.  People converted.   The second amazing occurrence was  the correct prophecy about the end of the First World War and the beginning ofthe Second World War. Then there was the prediction about Communism,

Saint John Paul II and Sr Lucia.

Saint John Paul II declared that it was Our Lady of Fatima who saved him from the assasins bullet.

The Three Seers who saw The Blessed Virgin over the course of 6 months in 1917,

Saint Jacinta,  Servant of God Sr Lucia and 

Saint Francisco.

The precious relics of St Jacinta and St Francisco will be present and available for individual veneration.
