Prayer for England

O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon England thy Dowry and upon us all who greatly hope and trust in thee. By thee it was that Jesus our Saviour and our hope was given unto the world; and He has given thee to us that we might hope still more. Plead for us thy children, whom thou didst receive and accept at the foot of the cross. O sorrowful Mother, intercede for our separated brethren, that with us in the one true fold they may be united to the supreme Shepherd, the Vicar of thy Son. Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith fruitful in good works we may all deserve to see and praise God, together with thee, in our heavenly home. Amen.

Our Lady of Fatima: Miraculous Statues


A statue of the Virgin Mary and the Infant Jesus is set at a makeshift altar before a pile of stones that was the 180-year-old Our Lady of Light Church in Loon, Bohol province, a day after a 7.2-magnitude quake destroyed the church.

Two statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary stand—without any blemish—amid the ruins of two churches in Maribojoc and Loon towns following Tuesday’s devastating earthquake. It was enough for residents to raise their hopes that life will get better. “It was a miracle,” Carol Ann Balansag said after residents of Barangay (village) Poblacion were surprised to find the 18th-century statue standing askew but without any scratch on the rubble of what used to be the Santa Cruz Parish Church.

The same feeling of amazement was felt by at least 600 people staying in makeshift tents on the church grounds of the Our Lady of Light Parish Church in Barangay Napu in Loon town. They were teary-eyed when they saw the grotto of the Birhen sa Kasilag (Our Lady of Light). “The earthquake destroyed the church, but it spared our patron,” said Fr. Tom Balatayo, one of the residents.

Meanwhile...

On the day after His Holiness Pope Francis consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, while commemorating the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, hopefully contemplating the yet unfulfilled request of Mary to consecrate, with all the world's bishops, Russia to her Immaculate Heart, and to release the Third Secret, lest God punishes the world with a great chastisement, a miracle occurred in the Philippines.

A large earthquake hit the southern Philippines. It's epicenter was the island of Bohol. It also occurred in the nearby island of Cebu. The death count is 160+, and 250+ injured. The people noticed a pattern. The main buildings to collapse were the old churches. In several of these churches the only thing that remained standing was a statue of Mary.

Yet, the most profound sign came from the most visited Marian Shrine in the Philippines on the island of Cebu, called Mama Mary shrine. There is a large, miraculous statue of Mary in this shrine, that has cried and cured many pilgrims. In the same church there is another statue of Mary, that appears to be Our Lady of Fatima. It has a base with the word "Portugal" on it. This base is continuous with the statue. They are one piece. The base cannot be detached from the body. Otherwise the statue would be broken into two pieces.

Here is the great miracle, which seems to be a message, a warning from Our Lady of Fatima. Right after the earthquake, pilgrims noticed and cried out in alarm that this statue had changed. Mary was now facing the wall, with her back to the people. But, the base itself, molded to the body of the statue, was still facing forward with the "Portugal" inscription!

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!  May Pope Francis and the world's bishops do as Our Lady requested.

Unfortunately the Pope didn´t consecrate the world to Immaculate Heart of Mary. He only entrusted the world to the “blessed Virgin Mary of Fatima” without mentioning her Immaculate Heart and without referring to her as the Mother of God.

I hate to say it, but every muslim could have signed the Pope´s prayer. The muslims adore a muslim Mary who was the virgin mother of the mere human muslim prophet Jesus who taught Islam and they adore Fatima who is the favorite daughter of their “prophet” Muhammed. There are even several hadiths about Mary and Fatima.

Regarding the muslims in Bohol:
"(...)More than 260 were wounded on Cebu and Bohol islands.
But it was noted that the death toll could have been higher if Tuesday wasn't a new public holiday in the Philippines. At the time of the quake, schools and office buildings would normally have been filled. The national holiday is the Muslim holiday known as Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice), which commemorates the willingness of Abraham to follow Allah's (God's) command to sacrifice his son Ishmael.(...)"

His son “Ishmael”…..
Allah is their "God" with only one person in it and no son according to the quran.

Please not another discussion as to whether Our Lady of Fatima's request has been fulfilled. JPII did it and Sister Lucia said it was done correctly. Please do not come back to the loads of secondary material denying this but let us look at the primary evidence in Lucia's own books and what the Vatican has told us.

I suspect that the statue is not all one block of marble as the globe under our Lady's feet would have only a very narrow connection to the base. I suspect that there is a metal spike holding the two parts together and Our Lady has merely swivelled on that spike! Still the survival of that and other statues is remarkable.

Sigh! no, Russia was not consecrated in unison with all the bishops of the world. Who says Lucia said so? If you want further proof, where is the world peace? Where is the triumph of the Immaculate Heart? Do you really, sincerely believe that these dreadful times we are living in are the wonderful time of peace the Quenn of Heaven promised us?

The Pope did not 'consecrate'anything. He 'entrusted', the words 'consecrate' or 'consecration' does not appear anywhere on the Vatican website entry related to this ceremony.
