Fatima. Heart. Misfortune of the King of France and of the Vatican
The misfortune of France
Shortly before her death, in 1689, Marguerite Marie Alacoque wrote several letters, in which she described the request of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, addressed to the King of France Louis XIV, regarding the consecration of France to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The full wish was for the King to:
Neither Louis XIV, nor his successors (Louis XV and Louis XVI) addressed this request. Exactly 100 years later, June 17, 1789, the Third Estate of France redefined itself as the National Assembly. The French Revolution (1789-1799) began. The King lost his throne. Incarcerated, Louis XVI remembered Jesus’ request and consecrated France to His Sacred Heart, but it was too late. On January 21, 1793, Louis XVI was executed on the guillotine.
The misfortunes of the clergy
On June 26, 2000 the Vatican published the Third Secret of Fatima (as many others we believe that they published only part of the secret). The Third Secret of Fatima is the remainder of the secret given by the Virgin Mary to the children on July 13, 1917.
One of the visions in this published text is of clergy, dying from bullets and arrows as they approach a cross.
“… a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.”
In the article The Apparition at Rianjo (1931) the author already noted that the execution of the bishop in white, together with the other bishops, priests, etc. appears as an execution of common criminals. Similarly, on January 21, 1793, France, ungrateful and rebellious to its God, dared to decapitate «its most Christian King» as if he were a criminal.
Importantly, the bishop in white and other Christians die from bullets and arrows. Clearly, they are stricken with «flaming arrows of the evil one» (Eph.6:16), that they were not able to quench with the «shield of faith».
14 Итак станьте, препоясав чресла ваши истиною и облекшись в броню праведности, Лк 12, 35. 1 Пет 1, 13.
15 и обув ноги в готовность благовествовать мир;
16 а паче всего возьмите щит веры, которым возможете угасить все раскаленные стрелы лукавого;
17 и шлем спасения возьмите, и меч духовный, который есть Слово Божие. Ис 59, 17. 1 Фес 5, 8. Евр 4, 12.
