Fatima. Letter of Lucia to Cerejeira (1940-12-19)

Father Gonçalves, who was the confessor of Sister Lucia at that time, asked her to write to the Patriarch of Lisbon. She wrote this letter on December 19, 1941.

According to Sister Lucia there is the following serious problem in the Church:

People which had vow their lives to Christ, should be devoted servants of God (bishops, priests, monks). In reality they do not sacrifice themself to God.

They only pretend to live for God, in fact, they are prospering in this world to live for pleasure.

There are real servants of God, who are sacrificing earthly blessings for God's sake. There are those, who, like Christ, are offering self sacrifices to God.

From the letter of Sister Lucia to Cardinal Cerejeira (1940-12-19)

Your Eminence Cardinal Patriarch,

… Our Lord is dissatisfied and grieved with the sins of the world and of Portugal. He complains about the lack of correspondence, the sinful life of the people, and especially about the lukewarmness, indifference and extremely comfortable life of the majority of the priests and members of religious organizations. The number of souls He meets through prayer and sacrifice is extremely small.

In reparation for itself and for the other nations, Our Lord wants the profane festivities of carnival to be abolished in Portugal and be substituted by prayers and sacrifices, with public prayers said on the streets. I ask Your Eminence therefore to promote them in union with all the Portuguese bishops.[*]

It would be good at this time not to forget that, when Our Lord promised a special protection over our nation, He said that it was guilty as well, and announced that it too would suffer something. This something will consist of consequences of foreign wars, which could become more or less serious, according to our correspondence to the wishes of Our Lord. Our Lord wants us to attract peace in this way not only over Portugal, but also over other nations.

I ask you with the deepest respect to bless Your Eminence’s most humble servant.


[*] Here, the copy destined for Father Gonçalves included a paragraph which, unfortunately, did not figure in the text sent to Cardinal Cerejeira: «Our Lord desires the government to take part in it, at least by abolishing the pagan feasts. But my director thinks that it is better to suppress the cooperation of the government, and that it be done only by Your Eminence and their Excellencies the bishops, as a campaign of prayers and sacrifices. Our Lord will make known His desires to you.»
