"Then God's Temple in Heaven was opened,
and the Ark of His Covenant
was seen within His Temple;
And there were flashes of lightning,
loud noises, peals of thunder,
an earthquake, and heavy hail.
And a great portent appeared in Heaven,
a Woman clothed with the sun,
with the moon under her feet,
and on her head a crown of twelve stars;
she was with Child
and she cried out in her pangs of birth,
in anguish for delivery.
And another portent appeared in Heaven;
behold a great red dragon,
with seven heads and ten horns,
and seven diadems upon his heads.
His tail swept down a third of the stars of Heaven,
and cast them to the earth.
And the dragon stood before the Woman
who was about to bear a Child,
that he might devour her Child
when she brought it forth;
she brought forth a male Child,
one who is to rule all the nations
with a rod of iron,
but her Child was caught up to God
and to His Throne....
Then the dragon was angry with the Woman,
and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring,
on those who keep the commandments of God
and bear testimony to Jesus."
"And whenever the ark set out,
Moses said, 'Arise, O Lord,
and let Thy enemies be scattered!'"
"In the end,
my Immaculate Heart
(Our Lady of Fatima, 1917)
“The current world crisis
and the crisis within the Church,
deep down will reveal a great hidden truth
not visible to the eyes:
that is humanity’s impotence
to resolve this on their own,
despite all its progress and technology.
It’s in the depths of her poverty,
that she will feel the necessity
to unite herself to God in an urgent way.
This will be the decisive moment
for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart”.
(John Paul II)
“Until the end of time,
we must win the universe
and each individual soul
now and in the future,
for the Blessed Virgin,
and through her,
for the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Those souls will reach
a much better and more profound love
for the Sacred Heart, than ever before.
Through their love
the world will be set on fire and consumed”
(St. Maximilian Kolbe)
“In the plan of Salvation, the mystery of the
Incarnation constitutes a superabundant fulfillment of God’s promise
made to man after the original sin - the effects of which loom over
all of the history of man on the earth. The Son comes to earth as offspring
of the woman, to destroy from its very root the evil of sin. The victory
of the woman’s Son would not succeed without a difficult battle
that would penetrate all of human history. “The enmity”
announced from the beginning is confirmed in Revelations, the book of
the final events of the Church and the world. Mary is seated in the
center of that “enmity,” of that struggle which will accompany
human history on earth and the same history of salvation. In this history
Mary continues to be a sign of future hope” (Redemptoris Mater
n. 11- John-Paul II).
