WORLD WAR III WILL OCCUR-- A great world war will begin. Little children, know that all you do benefits the world. Your prayers, penances, and fasts are helping to deter the determination of the third World War. Everything is as I have said before. It is in your hands. It depends on you whether the chastisement be as strong as the sorrow that my Son feels or that it [the chastisement] be appeased with prayer . . Great catastrophes are coming upon humanity; the third World War threatens the world. Catastrophes by man are coming.
