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.
