Marian Consecration and Fatima

Hello Everyone! I hope that the first few weeks of the new year have gone by well for you!

On May 13, 2019, I gave a talk in Ishpeming, MI on Marian Consecration and Fatima. I have made the talk available on my YouTube channel.

Some Background:
There was a group of people at the parishes in Ishpeming who were preparing for consecration to Mary. I was contacted either in February or March by a member of this group and was asked to give a talk about Marian consecration in relation to Fatima. I had not given such a talk before, but thankfully, I had some thoughts in my head and was able to organize them along with other material.

You’ll find the result of my preparations in this talk.

I also made a PowerPoint presentation to go along with the talk. My remarks were written out in advance, though there were numerous times that I went “off script” with the audience.

For the present video, I took digital stills of the PowerPoint and arranged them accordingly to the audio file.

I hope that you enjoy!

More on Fr. Edouard Dhanis

Last year, I posted an English translation of an article written by Dr. José Barreto of Lisbon, Portugal, on the writings of Fr. Edouard Dhanis concerning Fátima.

While in Fátima this past June, I noticed that there was some discussion on Fr. Dhanis on an Internet forum. I am quite happy to see this discussion taking place as I discuss Dhanis in my book On the Third Part of the Secret of Fátima.

I noticed that Joachim Bouflet wrote a book about Fátima entitled Fátima: 1917-2017. I have found Bouflet, generally speaking, to be a good writer and I looked forward to reading his book. I saw that he, too, has written about Fr. Dhanis (pgs. 126-132). Overall, I think he wrote well of the situation with the Flemish Jesuit. I like how he appears to acknowledge the opprobrium to which Dhanis was subjected.

For your reading pleasure, I have worked-up an English translation (by no means a polished one) of Bouflet’s discussion. I hope he does not mind that I have done so.

Sr. Lúcia and the Seventh Apparition

A relatively little-known aspect of the history of Our Lady’s apparitions in Fátima, Portugal concerns a comment made to Sr. Lúcia about a “seventh” apparition. On May 13, 1917, in her first apparition to the three shepherd children, Our Lady stated, “I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at this same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want. Afterwards, I will return here yet a seventh time.”[i] Has this seventh apparition already occurred? We shall look at this matter presently.
