Fatima, Russia, and the Remedy
COINCIDENCE or a SIGN to HEED? Now, occurring in Russia—between today, October 4 (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi) through October 7 (Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary)—40 million Russians are evacuating to bunkers. The reason? A drill. A drill including 40 million people. A person of reason will ask: What does Putin know that we don’t?
Two things that immediately came to mind: 1) Our Lady of Fatima’s prophecy in the “Second Secret” regarding Russia and an “either/or” fate for the Church and the entire world; and 2) the multitude of eventful dates in both World Wars that closely coincide with Church feast days or vigils—of which the majority is a Marian Feast.
WHAT THE VIRGIN PROPHESIED AT FATIMA
Our Lady of Fatima said on July 13, 1917: "If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and an era of peace will be granted to the world."

THE REMEDY FOR OUR TIMES
While there are many more of such signs and dates applicable to both World Wars, the point is made.
By the grace of God, in our times, there is a REMEDY—and it was given to the Church by Our Lady of Fatima!
• Pray for the Pope (whoever he may be, the present or the future Pope) who will command lead the collegial consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, while also promulgating to the universal Church the Five First Saturdays of Reparation.
• Pray the Rosary, every single day.
• Wear the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, chastely in accordance with our own state in life.
• Offer our daily life and duties as our own penance for sins.
• Offer every sacrifice that comes our way or which God allows in reparation to Him for sins and for the conversion of sinners.
• Grow in our personal devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
