Our Lady of Fatima’s Message about Communism and Atheism

The Miracle of the Sun is an alleged miraculous event witnessed by 30,000 to 100,000 people on 13 October 1917 in the Cova da Iria fields near Fátima, Portugal. Those in attendance had assembled to observe what the Portuguese secular newspapers had been ridiculing for months as the absurd claim of three shepherd children that a miracle was going to occur at high-noon in the Cova da Iria on 13 October 1917.
According to many witness statements, after a downfall of rain, the dark clouds broke and the sun appeared as an opaque, spinning disc in the sky. It was said to be significantly less bright than normal, and cast multicolored lights across the landscape, the shadows on the landscape, the people, and the surrounding clouds. 2 The sun was then reported to have careened towards the earth in a zigzag pattern, frightening some of those present who thought it meant the end of the world. Some witnesses reported that their previously wet clothes became “suddenly and completely dry.”
Lucia Santos became a nun and devoted her entire life to spreading Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as was revealed to her in the apparition of ‘Our Lady of Fatima’. I will briefly give you a little background history and lastly, my interpretation of the “Secret of Our Lady of Fatima” She warned us of the horrendous effects of communism. Her message was also a warning that the loss of faith of a Nation would be worse than the nuclear annihilation of a Nation.
Many Nations have suffered economic decimation which is then followed by the Nation’s citizens succumbing to communism. The later is true today in many nations around the world. She warned us that if we take faith and values out of our lives and our children’s lives, we would allow the possibility of Communism taking over our lives and our Nation. Her message was aimed at all of humanity.
In the revelation of the “Secret” Lucia was shown the fall of the souls of poor sinners and where told that order to save their souls, mankind had to stop offending God and stop the extremist beliefs and finally worship God. ‘Our Lady’s message is a call to action to all mankind, to choose the path of righteousness and avoid the path of Communism and Atheism (these two go hand in hand).
Even if the events to which the third part of the “secret” of Fatima refers now seem part of the past, Our Lady’s call to conversion and penance, issued at the start of the twentieth century, remains timely and urgent today . “The Lady of the message seems to read the signs of the times — the signs of our time — with special insight … The insistent invitation of Mary Most Holy to penance is nothing but the manifestation of her maternal concern for the fate of the human family, in need of conversion and forgiveness “.
If only the extremist of all faiths would remember the message of ‘Our Lady of Fatima’, the world would be at peace. The message of ‘Our Lady of Fatima’ was intended for all, the faithful and the unfaithful, to respect each other regardless of their faith.
