Sr. Lúcia Predicted a Nuclear War?

Last year, I was interviewed by Goya Productions for the DVD documentary on Fátima entitled Fátima: The Last Mystery. During the course of the pre-interview discussions between the interviewer and myself, I had been asked about a claim attributed to Sr. Lúcia. It is said that she once stated that the 1984 Consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary had averted a nuclear war that would have happened in 1985.

Having read this claim in a number of publications over the years, I confirmed it for the interviewer and spoke accordingly during the filming. My statement must have had an effect because it was put into the final product of the documentary. During my recent trip to Fátima, a friend brought the DVD for the “officially unofficial Fátima premier” of the documentary. Prior to the showing, my friend asked me about my source for the claim of the 1985 nuclear war. I was happy to discuss the matter with him, and now do so with you.

Interview with Dr. Paul Kengor

On Friday, June 9th (2017), I was interviewed for the Kresta in the Afternoon talk program by Dr. Paul Kengor (click ahead to the 26:15 mark).

I would also like to make a plug for Dr. Kengor’s book A Pope and a President. I have been reading it and am quite intrigued by it. With respect to my interests with Fátima, the book provides the political angle to the story. It is a bit refreshing to see things from a new light.

I was also interviewed by Bob Olson for WCAT Radio the other day. It airs this Friday but is available in advance.

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.

Pity that I did not have this available prior to the publication of my book!

Pope Francis Speaks on Medjugorje

During the return journey to Rome from Portugal, Pope Francis was asked about Medjugorje by the journalist Mimmo Muolo from Avvenire.

The Vatican’s web site has a transcription of the press conference. At this time, there is no official English translation (which will appear here when it is available), though Catholic News Agency has issued an unofficial one. Between these two texts, I would like to offer my thoughts in order to help people understand what has happened.

Here is a video of the press conference:
