Quotes from Messages in the Book of Truth that mention Fatima

NOV 29 2010  "Please listen to my visionaries. You will feel it in your hearts, when you hear the truth. Please do not fall into the trap of those who persecuted the visionaries of my blessed mother, including Saint Bernadette or my little children at Fatima. They were treated with the utmost disrespect, especially by my sacred servants. They are the ones who hurt the most, when my divine manifestations are given to mankind, out of love. My heart suffers more when they do not believe in the supernatural divine, nor recognise it when it is presented to them." - Jesus


JAN 01 2011    Secret of Fatima Connection with Future - "My devoted Mother, the Immaculate Conception, as Mediatrix, will help prepare the world for My Second Coming. She has been preparing mankind for many centuries, but has now, in the last 100 years, been trying to instill love in your hearts, to ignite the sometimes stagnate love you have for Me and My Eternal Father. There was a time when My Mother, who, through Divine Manifestation, would command attention on Earth. Sadly, since Fatima and Garabandal, few of My sacred servants take her Divine apparitions seriously. Nor are her visionaries, the chosen few, taken seriously. This time, as the year 2011 commences, many, many changes in the world are now about to take place. This is because the world, My children, as you once knew it is about to change. So many of you innocent and trusting souls fail to grasp the evil that is about to unfold. My children, and I include those reading these messages for the first time who, out of curiosity who may feel a gap in your spiritual welfare, listen now.  You and your fellow brothers and sisters are being led into a world dictated by the group, foretold in the last Secret of Fatima, to which you are not privy, where you will soon find the following.  1. Your money will be worthless and the only way to trade will be in gold or silver.  2. You will need to pray in groups and find a sacred servant, brave enough, to stand up before the Persecution.  3. You must find shelters for prayer because your churches will be sold for monetary gain.    4. Hold onto scripture, you may never had read them before, but be assured copies will be impossible to buy in the future.  5. Set up prayer groups to pray for the salvation of mankind. In three years time you will understand why this is important." - Jesus

FEB 19 2011   "All of the prophecies given to the Blessed visionaries at La Salette, Fatima and Garabandal will now unfold for all to see. For all the thousands of believers who know and accept these prophecies, know that now I your Saviour call on you all to pray for the souls of all mankind. Open your hearts once more to these new messages - the last prophecies of their kind to be bestowed on all of my children before I come back to judge." - Jesus

JAN 26 2012  "My daughter even the final secret of Fatima was not given to the world because it revealed the truth of satan's evil sect entering the Vatican.  The last part of the secret has not been revealed in order to protect the wicked sect who entered the Vatican in great numbers since My Mother's appearance at the holy shrine of Fatima.  My daughter Lucia was silenced by the powers which control part of the Vatican over which My poor beloved Popes have little control.   Watch how they have not only twisted the truth of My teachings but introduced new methods of Catholic worship which insult Me and My Eternal Father.  The Catholic Church is the one true church and as such is a primary target of satan and his wicked sect." - Jesus

JUL 22 2013  "The last secret of Fatima still remains unknown to God's children, although part of it was revealed to you on 26 January, 2012. Very few within the Church are privy to this. Now, the next part of the final secret of Fatima must be revealed, so that I can warn humanity of the consequences of ignoring my intervention to help save souls.  The Church has been infested, from the inside, by enemies of God. They -- and there are twenty of them who control from within -- have created the greatest deceit. They have elected a man, not of God, while the Holy Father, accorded the Crown of Peter, has been carefully removed.  The details, which I revealed, are that there would be two men wearing the Crown of Peter in the end times. One will suffer because of lies which have been created to discredit him and which will render him a virtual prisoner. The other one elected will bring about the destruction, not only of the Catholic Church, but of all churches which honour my Father and who accept the Teachings of my Son, Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world.  There can only be one head of the Church on Earth, authorised by my Son, who must remain pope until his death. Anyone else, who claims to sit in the Seat of Peter, is an imposter. This deceit has one purpose, to turn souls over to Lucifer and there is little time for such souls, who will be none the wiser, to be saved." - Mother of Salvation

AUG 13 2014 "My dear children, the time for the prophecies of La Salette and Fatima to be fulfilled is very close. You must not fear these times but, rather, embrace them for you must know that My Father's Covenant will be finally completed as it was meant to be." - Mother of Salvation

Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, Patron Saint of Divine Mercy
 
 
October 5  FEAST DAY of SAINT FAUSTINA, Patron Saint of Divine Mercy

The Biography of St. Maria Faustina

(August 25, 1905 - October 5, 1938)

An excerpt from Apostle of Divine Mercy, a biography published by the Vatican.

Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, an apostle of Divine Mercy, belongs today to the group of the most popular and well-known saints of the Church. 

Through her, the Lord Jesus communicates to the world the great message of God's mercy and reveals the pattern of Christian perfection based on trust in God and on the attitude of mercy toward one's neighbors. 

Sister Faustina was born on August 25, 1905 in Glogowiec, Poland of a poor and religious family of peasants, the third of 10 children. She was baptized with the name Helena in the parish church of Swinice Warckie. From a very tender age she stood out because of her love of prayer, work, obedience, and also her sensitivity to the poor. At the age of seven she had already felt the first stirrings of a religious vocation. Helen made her first Holy Communion at the age of 9, which was a very profound moment in her awareness of the presence of the Divine Guest within her soul. She attended school for three years. After finishing school, she wanted to enter the convent, but her parents would not give her permission. Being of age at 16, Helen left home and went to work as a housekeeper in Aleksandrw, Lodi, and Ostrwek in order to find the means of supporting herself and of helping her parents.

Helen joins Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy

Helen never lost her desire for a religious vocation. After being called during a vision of the Suffering Christ, she entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy on August 1, 1925, and took the name Sr. Maria Faustina of the Most Blessed Sacrament. She lived in the Congregation for thirteen years in several religious houses. She spent time at Krakow, Plock and Vilnius, where she worked as a cook, gardener, and porter. 

Externally nothing revealed her rich mystical interior life. She zealously performed her tasks and faithfully observed the rule of religious life. She was recollected and at the same time very natural, serene, and full of kindness and disinterested love for her neighbor. Although her life was apparently insignificant, monotonous and dull, she hid within herself an extraordinary union with God. 

It is the mystery of the Mercy of God which she contemplated in the word of God as well as in the everyday activities of her life that forms the basis of her spirituality. The process of contemplating and getting to know the mystery of God's mercy helped develop within Sr. Maria Faustina the attitude of child-like trust in God as well as mercy toward her neighbors. 

Sister Faustina was a faithful daughter of the Church which she loved like a Mother and the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ. Conscious of her role in the Church, she cooperated with God's mercy in the task of saving lost souls. At the specific request of and following the example of the Lord Jesus, she made a sacrifice of her own life for this very goal. In her spiritual life she also distinguished herself with a love of the Eucharist and a deep devotion to the Mother of Mercy.

The Secretary of God's Mercy

The Lord Jesus chose Sr. Maria Faustina as the Apostle and "Secretary" of His Mercy, so that she could tell the world about His great message, which Sr. Faustina recorded in a diary she titled "Divine Mercy in My Soul". In the Old Covenant He said to her:

"I sent prophets wielding thunderbolts to My people. Today I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish aching mankind, but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My Merciful Heart." (Diary, 1588)

In an extraordinary way, Sr. Maria Faustina's work sheds light on the mystery of the Divine Mercy. It delights not only the simple and uneducated people, but also scholars who look upon it as an additional source of theological research. The "Diary" has been translated into more than 20 languages, including, English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Arabic, Russian, Hungarian, Czech, Slovak, Polish, Castilian, Brazilian, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, Swedish, Ukrainian, Dutch and Japanese. 

Sister Maria Faustina, consumed by tuberculosis and by innumerable sufferings which she accepted as a voluntary sacrifice for sinners, died in Krakow at the age of just 33 on October 5, 1938, with a reputation for spiritual maturity and a mystical union with God. The reputation of the holiness of her life grew as did the cult to the Divine Mercy and the graces she obtained from God through her intercession. In the years 1965-67, the Investigative Process into her life and heroic virtues was undertaken in Krakow and in the year 1968, the Beatification Process was initiated in Rome. The latter came to an end in December 1992. 

On April 18, 1993 our Holy Father, John Paul II raised St. Faustina to the glory of the altars. She was canonized on April 30, 2000. St. Maria Faustina's remains rest at the Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy in Krakow-Lagiewniki.

The Warning is a manifestation of My Divine Mercy given to Sr. Faustina

Sunday 26th June 2011 18.00 hours

from The Book of Truth, Volume 1
 

My dearly beloved daughter time is close now. There is very little time to warn and prepare all those poor souls who will be so shocked during The Warning that they will not realize what they are witnessing.  They must be told so that they will know what to expect. If they open their heart to this great moment of Divine Mercy they will be given the chance of eternal life.

This great Warning is the manifestation of My Divine Mercy given to Sister Faustina. This great act of My Mercy was foretold and it will be during The Warning that My Great Mercy will envelop the whole world. My blood and water will gush forth so that you will all know the truth at last. Tell those who do not believe in Me, or My Eternal Father, that this event will happen. Then when it does they will be able to withstand the shock of My Mercy which will save millions of souls during The Warning from the grasp of Satan. The truth, when revealed, will save so many from the fires of Hell.

The Holy Spirit thereafter present in My children everywhere will help defeat the works of The Evil One. All of you must spread the word about how mankind needs to prepare their souls in advance. For even believers must understand that they too will find it emotionally disturbing to view their own past sinful behaviour as it appears to Me.

I call on all of you now to seek confession. For those other Christians you must kneel down and pray for redemption. For those who are unsure of this prophecy please keep  your hearts open for when you witness this ecological but supernatural event it is important that you understand that this is the greatest miracle you will ever see and that it is My great gift to you all. Consider this.  This is how the Final Day of Judgement will unfold only this time you will not be condemned. You will be given a new lease of life when your souls will be saved to enable you to restore it to the level I desire of it.

Believers pray for others with all your hearts now that they will be saved.

Your saviour,

 

Jesus
