And a great sign appeared in heaven: a Woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars(Apocalypse 12.1).
On October 13, 1917,the Woman [who] shall crush the head of Satan(Gen. 3.15, DRV) appeared again in Fatima, Portugal. But this time, Her apparition was like no other. This was meant for the whole world to take careful notice of and heed, for God stamped it with an unmistakable visible divine effect which astounded and confounded not only the general unbelievers, skeptics, and freethinkers among the crowd of the faithful assembled there on that day but even the organized Satanic forces (the Freemasons) then gripping the administration of the place and the whole of that country known as the “Land of Mary”.
A. The Great Sign of October 1917:
1.The report of Avelino de Almeida, Chief Editor ofO Seculo, the“liberal” anti-Catholic and Freemasonic daily newspaper of Lisbon and the country’s most widely circulated which was the first to carry a front-page article on the October 13, 1917 Fatima Apparition(Almeida’s previous articles had been to satirize with impiety the previously reported events at Fatima):
“Black clouds range themselves precisely over the borders of Fatima [at dawn]… At ten o’clock the sky is completely clouded over and it is not long before it begins to rain furiously. The sheets of water, driven by a heavy wind, strike the faces, turn the road into a pool, soak to the bone the travelers who are unprovided with hats of other equipment…
The miraculous manifestation, the visible, pre-announced sign, is about to show itself – many pilgrims insist. And then a spectacle, unique and incredible to one who is not a witness, is observed. From the top of the road… where there are many hundreds of people who were not inclined to trod in the muddy earth, the whole immense crowd [estimated by historians to be about 70,000] is seen to turn toward the sun which, free of clouds, is now at the zenith.
a.The Vision of the Sun Without Hurting or Blinding the Sight
The sun reminds one of a disk of dull silver, andit is possible to look straight at it without the least effort.It doesn’t burn, nor does it blind.
b.1.The Solar Prodigy…
To the astonished eyes of that people, whose attitude brings us back to biblical times and who, when, ashen with terror, with heads uncovered, look into the blue of the sky,the sun trembles, the sun makes brusque movements, never seen before, and beyond all cosmic laws – the sun ‘danced’ as the typical expression of the peasants put it. Perched on the running board of the bus from Torres Novas is an old man… turning towards the sun he recites the ‘Credo’ in aloud voice from beginning to end. I ask him who he is and he says that he is Senhor Joao Maria Amadeo de Mello Ramalho da Cunha Vasconcelos [a man of some prominence in the vicinity]. I later see him turning to those about him who have kept their hats on, vehemently begging them to uncover beforeso extraordinary a demonstration of God’s existence…
b.2.… And Its Most Terrifying Aspect
…[The sun] came down almost to the point of burning the earth with its rays…
c.Conclusion of Almeida’s report:
….It remains for those who are competent to speak out onthedance macabreof the sunwhich today in Fatima has caused hosannas to burst forth from the breasts of the faithful andhas naturally impressed– as I have been assured by people worthy of belief –freethinkers and others without interest in religious matters who have come to this now famous heath. – Avelino de Almeida [October 15, 1917]” (in Costa Brochado, famed Portuguese writer and political expert,Fatima a Luz da Historia, translated into English by G.C.A. Boehrer,Fatima In The Light Of History, WI: The Bruce Publishing Company, 1955, pp. 148-152). [emphasis original]
The famed Portuguese writer and political expert, Costa Brochado, observes: “Avelino de Almeida’s article, written intelligently, calmly, and objectively, caused a great reaction which will never be forgotten in connection with the history of Fatima” (p.154).
2.Almeida’s Renewed Testimony
Avelino de Almeida was attacked violently by his fellow anti-Catholic editors over his article. However, he renewed his testimony, fifteen days later, in his review,Illustracao Potuguesaand this time illustrated his account with a dozen photographs of the huge crowd while repeating as a refrain throughout his article: “I saw… I saw… I saw.”
And he concluded: “Miracle, as the people shouted? Natural phenomenon, as experts say? For the moment, that does not concern me, I am only saying what I saw… The rest is a matter for Science and the Church” (October 29, 1917, in Fr. Paul Kramer, ed.,The Devil’s Final Battle, Good Counsel Publications, 2002, pp. 8-9).
3.Reports from other anti-Catholic paperswhich were compelled to bear witness:
a.O Portugal, the official organ of the Freemasonic Democratic Party, published on October 15, 1917 a front-page item entitled“The Sun Dances Madly“:
“What amazes us… is thatthe sun, a respectable star…also takes part in the affair and dances like a mad dancer in a wild country dance… For many years now,the sun has been considered, relative to our planetary system, as a fixed star…Butnow three boorish children come along andoverturn scientific truth[that the earth is the one that revolves around the sun is a mere unproven theory].Through their influence in the court of heaven, they cause the sun to dance over the chosen place of Fatima” (in Costa Brochado above).
b. Another Freemasonic Lisbon daily,O Dia, reported on October 17, 1917:
“The silver sun, enveloped in the same gauzy grey light,was seen to whirl and turnin the circle of broken clouds. The light turned a beautiful blue… as if it had come through the stained-glass windows of a cathedral, and spread itself over the people who knelt with outstretched arms… people wept and prayed with uncovered heads, in the presence ofa miraclethey had awaited.The seconds seemed like hours, so vivid were they” (in John De Marchi,The Immaculate Heart, NY: Farrar, Straus and Young, 1952, p. 143).
4.On the blood-colored-ball-of-fire-looking sun plunging into the earth:
“We suddenly heard a clamor, like a cry of anguish of that entire crowd. The Sun, in fact, keeping its rapid movements of rotation, seemed to free itself from the firmament and blood-red, to plunge towards the earth, threatening to crush us with its fiery mass. Those where some terrifying seconds” (Dr. Almeida Garrett, Professor of Natural Sciences at Coimbra University, in Frere Francois de Maries des Anges, “Fatima: The Astonishing Truth,” Book One ofFatima: Intimate Joy World Event, NY: Immaculate Heart Publications, 1993, p.178; also in Costa Brochado, op. cit., p. 178).
“The sun, at one moment, surrounded with scarlet flame, at another aureoled in yellow and deep purple, seemed to be in an exceedingly swift and whirling movement, at times appearing to be loosened from the sky, and to be approaching the earth, strongly radiating heat” (Dr. Domingos Pinto Coelho, a renowned lawyer writing for Lisbon’sA Ordem, the official Catholic organ, in J. de Marchi, op. cit., p. 147).
"Madly gyrating... the fiery orb seemed to tremble, to shudder, and then to plunge precipitately, in a mighty zigzag, toward the crowd.
A fearful cry broke from the lips of thousands of terrified persons as they fell upon their knees, thinking the end of the world had come.... 'Ai Jesus, we all going to die here!' 'Save us, Jesus! Our Lady, save us!' 'O my God, I am sorry...'And one began the Act of Contrition. Some who had come to jeer fell fell on their faces and broke into sobs and abject prayers. The Marques do Cruz said, 'Oh my God, how great is Thy power!'
This had lasted about ten minutes, perhaps. Then all saw the sun begin to climb, in the same zigzag manner, to where it had appeared before. It became tranquil, then dazzling. No one could look at it any longer. It was the sun of every day.
The people stared at one another in joy and amazement. 'Miracle! Miracle! The children were right! Our Lady made the miracle! Blessed be God! Blessed be Our Lady!'The shouts were taken up all over the Cova da Iria" (William Thomas Walsh, a respected American historian,Our Lady of Fatima, London: MacMillan & Co., Ltd., 1950, p. 190).
"It was like a globe of snow revolving on itself. Then suddenly it seemed to come down in a zigzag, threatening to fall on the earth... Near us was an unbeliever without religion, who had spent the morning mocking the blockheads who had made all that journey to Fatima to go and stare at a girl. I looked at him. He stood as if paralysed, thunderstruck, his eyes fixed on the sun. Then I saw him tremble from head to foot, and raising his hands to heaven, he fell on his knees in the mire, shouting, 'Nossa Senhora! Nossa Senhora!'Meanwhile, the people continued to scream and cry out, begging God to pardon their sins..." (the school teacher Dona Delfina Pereira Lopes, see below, in William Thomas Walsh, ibid., p. 191).
5.The Claim of “Mass Hysteria” readily belied by God
Scientifically, what kind of phenomena occurred in Fatima based on the official reports of the anti-Catholic press? The famed Portuguese writer and political expert, Costa Brochado (see above), notes:
a. “If we are dealing withastronomical phenomena, they would unquestionably be recorded in the observatories,something which… did not happen.
b. “If they had beenatmospheric phenomena, they would bepurely local within a small radius, and in any case their characteristics would conform somehow with scientific realities.None of this has been verified” (p. 185):
b.1. The poet Afonso Lopes Vieria, who was at home with his family in S. Pedro de Muel,some30 miles from Fatima, testified that while working on his veranda at noon of October 13, 1917, he was surprised to see an astounding solar phenomenon so that he enthusiastically called to his wife and his mother-in-law to come and see. Later, his widow Senhora Helena da Aboim Lopes Vieria confirms his words. She explains that with the others she hurried she hurried to the veranda and from there they observed the wonderful sights which they later knew had been produced in the Cova da Iria (C. Brochado, ibid.).
b.2. In another direction, in Alburitel, a placeabout 9 miles from Fatima, the schoolteacher Senhora Delfina Pereira Lopes ran out greatly excited to the street, with her charges, at noon, on October 13, 1917, for they had seen the terrifying movements in the sun. There in the middle of the street,the shouting and crying townspeople thought the world was coming to an endand they prayed the Rosary in chorus (ibid.).
Mr. Brochado concludes: “These cases [of which sworn testimonies contained in the official transcripts of the diocesan investigation - concluded on October 13, 1930 - were published byThe Catholic Register, July 1931] surely dispose of the allegations of collective suggestion of the crowd which was in the Cova da Iria, and they also prove that the solar phenomena observed there were not purely local” (p. 186).
B. The other Apocalyptic sign of November 1917
On that very day then of October 13, 1917,the great sign of the Apocalyptic battle has been signalled by God.Then, inNovember of 1917,a month after the October 13 Miracle at Fatima,there was seen another sign in heaven:and behold a greatreddragon(Apoc. 12.3).Satan launched his bloody atheistic-materialist Russian Communist assault specifically directed against the Roman Catholic Church:Joshua Jehouda, one of the important contemporary ‘spiritual’ leaders of theSynagogue of Satan(Apocalypse 2.9; 3.9), declares,
“Thethird [Jewish] attempt* toamend the Christian position, after the failure of reformed Christianity [i.e, the 16th century revolt of Martin Luther subscribed to up to this day by the several thousands of conflicting "Bible-only"-based sectarians -- the Discalced Carmelite Friars] to unite, took place under the impetus of the French Revolution [of 1789]… which marked the beginning of atheism in the history of Christian peoples.Declaredly anti-religious, this Revolution continues, through the influence of Russian Communism, to make a powerful contribution to the de-christianisation* of the Christian world[theChristian worldis categorically identified withthe Roman Catholic world; earlier, Mr. Jehouda admitted to the effect that the "Bible-only"-based 'Christianity' is nothing but the Synagogue's dummy and its failed counterfeit Christianity at that!]” (L’Antisemitisme,Miroir du Monde, [British Museum reserve] 1958, pp. 170-2). --- * Cf., our post "Anti-Christian Conspiracy: Scriptural Truth and Historical Fact"
C. TheWoman clothed with the sunand Her Brown Scapular of Carmel
In ending her October 13, 1917-apparition in Fatima, Portugal, the Immaculate Conception was last seen as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel by Lucia (who became Sr. Maria Lucia of the Immaculate Heart, C.D. in Teresian Carmel). Later, on August 15, 1950, when interrogated why the Woman made Her final appearance as Our Lady of Carmel, Sr. Lucia replied: “BecauseShe wants all to wear the Scapular” (cf., "Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and Her Brown Scapular"). Clearly,Our Immaculate Mother wants all to become members of her Carmelite family of which Her Scapular is the sign of membership. Yet greater still,the Brown Scapular, according to Pope Pius XII, in his apostolic letter on the commemoration of the seventh centennial of the apparition of the Woman to St. Simon Stock, is “the sign of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary…particularly recommend[ed] in these perilous times” – it isthe visible Badge of Victory and Salvation of the rest of the seedwhounder the standard of the Immaculate Conceptionshall crush the head of the ancient infernal serpent so inimical to the salvation of humankind and who shalldeceive if possible, even the elect(Mt. 24.24) in this end-times.
D. Active Alliance with Our Immaculate Mother of Carmel
Membership in Her Carmelite family today is, regrettably, generally characterized by the simple wearing of the Brown Scapular and, most often than not, based on a shallow, if not false, devotion to this Immaculate Mother and “Queen Beauty” of Carmel, namely, to secure Her aid, protection, and intercession in a material and physical sense only thereby making Her Scapular a sort of talisman. Way far off from what our Immaculate Mother desires of Her children! This is the ordinary state of Scapular wearers:the passive wearing of the holy Carmelite habit–a statethough may be pious still, being a silent devotion, butnot where Satan and his forces is utterly impotent to vanquish if possible even the elect.
Our Immaculate Mother calls for a legion of elite Roman Catholics who would position themselves in the vanguard to engage in what Our Lady of Fatima calls the “decisive battle” against Satan and his forces. As St. Maximilian Kolbe’sMilitia Immaculatæ(“Knights of the Immaculate”),they would live and propagate God’s saving design of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Apocalyptic Woman at Lipa PH
Leads to exile...
The Most Blessed Virgin Mary - Mediatrix of All Graces
(Carmelite Proper on 31st May - Pentecost Sunday this year, transferred today)
Why do you spend... for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy?
... Incline your ear and come to me: hear and your soul shall live(Is. 55.2) | 11th June, Solemnity ofCorpus Christi
It seemed as if Our Blessed Mother, our "powerful Mediatrix" (the Roman Breviary for the Teresian Carmel), had failed in keeping Teresita* in the INSTITUTIONAL walls of the Teresian Carmel where her "soul [should have lived]." No, Our Blessed Mother only knew very well the deep darkness of Vatican II-'ecumenical harlotry' - against which Her great Prophet on Mount Carmel battled with fiery zeal way, way in advance (prefiguring our times and that of the Antichrist) - that would envelop even the institutions of Her Order:
1)By the hand of thy[the Assyrians' king]servants thou hast reproached the Lord, and hast said: With the multitude of my chariots I have gone up to the height of the mountains[the higher-ups of the visibly official Church], to the top of Libanus, and have cut down its tall cedars, and its choice fir trees. And I have entered into the furthest parts thereof, and the forest of its Carmel(IV Ki. 19.23).
2)And gladness and joy shall be taken away from Carmel" (Is. 16.10).
3)I looked, and behold Carmel was a wilderness: and all its cities were destroyed at the presence of the Lord, and at the presence of the wrath of his indignation(Jer. 4.26).
Therefore, those vocations who would like to follow Her call to Her Carmel will have to follow Her for the meantime in blessed exile with Her Crucified Son (as on Mount Calvary: OUTSIDE the official walls of divine service) - where She obtained that spot of Her being the "Mediatrix of ALL [the] Graces" Her Son has merited for us; they must obtain first "ALL GRACE of THE WAY and of THE TRUTH" - Wherein is "all hope of life and of virtue" (Ecclus. 24.25); "all grace..." for the Resistance path is inconveniently "narrow and strait" (why He Who IsThe Way and The Truth: "When you shall see the ["New 'Catholic abNormal'"] abomination [the Protestant 'banquet-fellowsip' in the common/vulgar language of the assembly]... in the Holy Pace...FLEETO THE MOUNTAINS [the true light of our Apostolic Tradition and licit - grace-giving (St. Thomas Aq.) - Sacraments will still be attained but with much difficulty and lots of hardships] - Mt. 24.15,16).

* Whom Our Blessed Mother had chosen to speak with. Only a Postulant whose early exile** went on until her death some few years ago.
** In 1948, at Lipa in Batangas PH, the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace, revealed, among other things, Her special love for our country because we accept Her also for our Mother so that we always run to Her in our troubles andwe even defend Her against the Protestant 'Bible-only' "sects of perdition"(II Pet. 2.1) - why Card. Montini (later Paul VI), second to Pope Pius XII as Vatican Secretary of the State, must have been moved to derail*** the Lipa apparition in finally reaching the Holy Father after having been approved already by the Ordinary, Bp. Versoza, and his auxiliary, Bp. Obviar, as supernatural in origin given the actual facts (as the shower of roses of Russian variety on the Ordinary himself upon his entering the Carmelite Monastery to settle the 1948 apparition) of the case :this stands in contradiction to his school of ecumenical "disorientation" ('Catholics' are spiritual brothers with the "Synagogue of Satan" , the Moslems, the 'Bible-only' heretics, 'Orthodox' schismatics, pagans, and other delusioned)which Vatican II would later 'consecrate' to be the foundation of its "New 'Catholic 'disOrder" (the 'updated'-Church non-antagonistic with the 'liberal Modernist' "New World disOrder" of Jewry-Communist-Freemasonry).
*** His men, headed by Bp. [later Cardinal] Rufino Santos (immediately replaced the Ordinary, Bp. Versoza, who had been exiled back to his native place in poverty), illegally 'overturned' the original decree. The recent Vatican 'order' claiming Pope Pius XII disapproved the 1948 Lipa apparition is a lie - nothing of that sort in the "Acts of the Holy See" under the same Roman Pontiff.
"Let the Resistance Carmelites - PH from this day on console Her sorrowing Heart. You will be provided with that particular Consecration She asked of Her own in this part of the Orient which we have begun today before the Eucharistic Heart of Our Lord exposed on the altar. Learn it, renew it as often as possible especially with your Spiritual Communion, and conform with it through Her intercession - invoking Her in Her blessed title "Mediatrix of All Grace."" - Fr.

The "Morning Rising"
Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary
"Hail holy Mother who brought forth to the world the Everlasting Light, Jesus Christ Our Lord" (from the Introit and Preface of the Tridentine"Sancta Missa" - the pre-1950 'reform' Missal authorized by Pope St. Pius X).
St. Augustine : "Dearly beloved brethren, the day for which we have longed, the Feast-day of the Blessed and Venerable Ever-Virgin Mary, that day is come.... The mother of our race brought punishment into the world, but the Mother of our Lord [will now bring] Salvation into the world... Eve welcomed death, but Mary [will now help us] in life. Eve smote, but Mary [will now bring us] Healing and Cure" (18th Sermon on the Saints) as St. Augustine - once a great sinner: his mind ensnared by errors which all the more plunged his soul and body into the filth of sexual debauchery, but was raised into a towering greatCatholic Saint (NO Vatican II-'Catholic' who strives to serve both the "Catholic God" of St. Augustine's ancient Faith and the 'ecumenical' idol of 'all mercy & compassion' of the day with its assurances of this-wordly 'blessings' of wealth, luxury, conveniences, fame, and sensual pleasures being 'OK'; and, NO Protestant 'Bible-only' heretic) - obtained from Her who, in this Her birth, is "the morning rising BRIGHT AS the Sun [SINLESS as Our Lord, "the Orient from on high," St. Lk. 1.78]" (Canticle 6.9). Indeed, they "who find [Her] finds Life, and obtains favor from the Lord" (Pr. 8.35)
