FATIMA - END TIMES SIGN - TWO LAST REMEDIES- Sunday 27th Sept., 2009. St. Cosmas and Damian, Martyrs
Sister Lucia told Fr. Fuentes in 1957 that we are in the last times
"Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last tmes of the world but she made me understand this for three reasons.
The first reason is because she told me that the Devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Hence from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the Devil. There is no other possibility.
"The second reason is because she said to my cousins as well as to myself that God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.. These are the last two remedies which signify that there will be no others.
"The third reason is because in the plans of Divine Providence, God always, before He is about to chastise the world, exhausts all other remedies. Now, when He sees that the world pays no attention whatsoever then, as we say in our imperfect manner of speaking, He offers us with a certain trepidation the last means of salvation, His Most Holy Mother. It is with a certain trepidation because if you despise and repulse this ultimate means we will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven because we will have committed a sin against the Holy Spirit.
This sin consists of openly rejecting with full knowledge and consent, the salvation which He offers. Let us remember that Jesus Christ is a very good Son and that He does not permit that we offend and despise His Most Holy Mother.
We have recorded through many centuries of Church history the obvious testimony which demonstrates, by the terrible chastisements which have befallen those who have attacked the honor of His Holy Mother.
Regarding the Holy Rosary, Sister Lucia told Fr. Fuentes in a famous 1957 interview:
"Look, Father, the Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live, has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Holy Rosary.
She has given this efficacy to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all , spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, or of the religious communities, or even of the life of peoples and nations that cannot be solved by the Rosary.
There is no problem I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary. With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves, we will sanctify ourselves. We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls."
