Dear Apostles of the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Your very generous donation is a singular blessing for us especially now. There
are many areas of the world which are witnessing genocide: Nigeria, Nicaragua,
Cameroon and Mexico to name just a few. Monsignor Ayeah wrote today from
Cameroon: “We are in pain and suffering, surrounded by senseless killings.
Two of my brother priests were murdered last week. Pray for us!”
So few souls possess the holy Scapular, Rosary or Miraculous Medal of Our Lady
for protection and grace! Your sacrifice and love make it possible for us to reach
souls with these Sacramentals. You are the hands and heart of Mary, and She will
not be outdone in generosity! May God reward you!
Today, war surrounds us on every side. War is the collapse of the Divine Order
which God, with man’s cooperation, is striving to establish in the world. The
collapse of this Order is due to man’s disobedience and is itself God’s Judgement
on mankind. In the inscrutable Providence of God and, according to the nature
of man, a civilization may sometimes reach a rottenness which only fire can
expunge and cleanse. Saving our immortal souls is the most important work in
our lives. Even if the city built by man completely crumbles by heartrending
destruction, bear in mind that God is ever in perfect control of all things. No matter
what evil befalls mankind, God has allowed it to come to pass and, in His own
wondrous way, He will raise up a greater good: the City of God founded by the
Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of His Blessed Mother!
“It is IN the Heart of Mary that the world
will once again find true fraternity!
It is BY the Heart of Mary
that it will obtain pardon and mercy!
It is WITH the Heart of Mary that the new
City will be built in Truth, Justice and Charity!
It is FOR the Heart of Mary and
for its honor and glory!”
(Father Denis Mary McAuliffe, O.P.)
Grateful and free, humanity will increase its
manifestations of love and filial gratitude to Mary.
It is good for us to hold this vision of triumph so
that, full of unshakable confidence in the mercy and
the power of Mary, we will espouse her cause with love and energy. FATIMA is the
Gospel of Salvation and the School of Survival! United under the banner of Mary,
our combined love and energy can save a civilization on the brink of perishing.

Let us pray for one another.
