“Dear friends, may no adversity paralyze you. Be afraid neither of the world, nor of the future, nor of your weakness. The Lord has allowed you to live in this moment of history so that, by your faith, his name will continue to resound throughout the world.” (Pope Benedict XVI)
Set forth below are three important prophecies by three modern saints who were all born in Poland. The first prophecy is by Saint Pope John Paul II, and was made during a visit to the United States in 1976 when he was still a Cardinal. The second prophecy is by Saint Maximilian Kolbe, the Franciscan priest who died in a starvation bunker in Auschwitz during World War II, having volunteered to take the place of a married man. The third prophecy is from Saint Faustina Kowalska, the nun whose “Diary” has promoted greater devotion to God’s Divine Mercy. She died in 1938 and was canonized in 2000.
FIRST PROPHECY (By Saint John Paul II)
SECOND PROPHECY (by Saint Maximilian Kolbe)
THIRD PROPHECY (by Saint Faustina Kowalska)
Comment: We should be increasingly aware that there are strong forces in our society under the domain of Satan. One sign of this is the massive apostasy we are witnessing. In Luke’s Gospel (Chapter 19) we see that Jesus wept over Jerusalem and prophesied its coming destruction, which occurred in A.D. 70. Jerusalem was not as blessed as nations who have received the Gospel. The greatest immediate threat in all of this is our children and young adults, who are losing their precious faith in massive numbers. Chastisement comes quickly from the dissolution of morality consequent to the loss of faith: suddenly you find yourself living in a society sinking from the weight of its own immorality (this situation is described by Saint Paul at Romans 1: 24-32 ). The wisdom of the three saints mentioned in this note is unanimous that consecration to Mary is of immense value in remaining faithful to our baptismal consecration to Jesus. Pope Francis had his papacy consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima by Cardinal Jose Polycarp of Lisbon, Portugal; the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima have a profound prophetic dimension for our times and the trials the Church will have to endure. Perhaps this is a good time to review the great historical and supernatural facts of Fatima.
