Sister Lucia said that if we want to understand Fatma we need to read the Book of the Apocolypse chapters 8 to 13 -- it is mentioned in these verses about a period of tribualtion lasting 42 months in which evil reaches its zenith before the Lord intervenes --- Revelation 11:2 Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months. Revelation 13:5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. Two important events occured with Sister Lucia divided by 42 months -- Sister Lúcia - December 10, 1925, at Pontevedra, she experienced a vision of the Holy Virgin and the Christ Child. The Virgin Mary showed her a heart encircled by thorns, which she was holding in her hand. During this apparition, the Child Jesus asked Sister Lúcia "have compassion on the heart of your most holy Mother, covered with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce at every moment, and there is no one to make an act of reparation to remove them." At this point, the Virgin Mary is said to have set the parameters of the Five First Fatima Devotions. THREE AND A HALF YEARS LATER (42 months) On June 13, 1929, Sister Lucia dos Santos was given a mystical vision which can also serve as a profound catechesis on the saving Catholic Faith. The Mysteries of the Blessed Trinity, the Incarnation, the Cross, our Redemption, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacred Host and the Precious Blood, Our Blessed Mother and Her intercessory role, divine grace and mercy: all of these hold a prominent role in this heavenly apparition. Our Lady said “The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means.” Our Lady had already mentioned this consecration at Fatima, as part of Her ‘Secret’ on July 13, 1917. However, She indicated that She would return at a future date to actually request the consecration. June 13, 1929 was that day. (“Make it known to My ministers, given that they follow the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of My command, they will follow him into misfortune.” Our Blessed Lord at Rianjo in August of 1931). We are on the cusp of the 100th anniversary of these revelations & signs from heaven -- Dec 10th 2025 - June 13 2029 - three and a half years (42 months) - will this be the tribulations and zenith of the evil in our times? - the devil knows his time is running out -- Luke 4:25 But I say to you in truth, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up for three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land. James 5:17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. Daniel 12:7 I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, as he raised his right hand and his left toward heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time; and as soon as they finish shattering the power of the holy people, all these events will be completed. Who knows but food for thought.
