In Fatima (1917) during the First World War, the Most Holy Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherds, giving evident proofs, by way of a spectacular miracle, of the truth of the Apparitions and Apocalyptic Messages She had given. This miracle was witnessed by a great crowd of pilgrims and other spectators, who had gathered at Fatima on the 13th of October. Among other Messages given in Fatima, the Most Holy Virgin Mary: made an anguished calling to prayer and penance, in the face of the chaotic situation of the world, immersed in immorality and amid the cataclysm of the First World War; She asked for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart, and reparation to Her Immaculate Heart on the first Saturdays of the month; She warned that unless Her maternal desires were met, Russia would spread her errors, and that Russia would therefore be the scourge of the world, of which God would avail Himself to chastise the world; besides, She announced that after the First World War there would be another far more terrible. The Most Holy Virgin Mary also announced that, in the end, Russia would be converted. The Most Holy Virgin Mary gave a transcendent message, known as the Secret of Fatima, in which are foretold terrible future events in the Catholic Church, which would be savagely desecrated by her own prelates, to the point that freemasonry and communism would scale the summit and other top posts in the Vatican; thus announcing long beforehand that following the Pontificate of Saint Paul VI, the last Pope with See in Rome, there would be a great apocalyptic schism with Rome ruled by antipopes, visible heads of judeo-vatican freemasonry and precursors of antichrist. Sadly, the true Secret Message of Fatima was never made known to the world.
