by Dr. Mark Miravalle and Richard L Russell on September 24, 2013
Pope Francis will be welcoming the Our Lady of Fatima statue from Portugal to the Vatican next month. He plans to use the occasion to consecrate the world in to the Immaculate Heart of Mary—as Pope John Paul II had done in 1984 and 2000—just as the Blessed Mother had requested in her 1917 apparition to three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal in order to foster world peace. Indeed, with the crises in Syria and Egypt boiling and threatening to spillover to neighboring states, the looming crisis over Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program, and Russia’s growing anti-western foreign policy stance and a more assertive role in the rapidly deteriorating Middle East, Pope Frances’ consecration to Our Lady of Fatima is urgently needed.
While the Marian apparition at Fatima is widely and rightly acknowledged among Catholics for its heavenly offer of assistance to humanity, another and more recent apparition with an offer of another mighty weapon for the Church’s spiritual arsenal goes unused. Just as the Fatima apparitions occurred at the closing stages of World War I, other and just as significant apparitions occurred at the ending of World War II in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Those apparitions had even more to say about the future of international politics than those at Fatima and were given by the Blessed Mother in some 56 appearances to a humble Dutch woman from 1945 to 1959. The apparitions after investigation and discernment were courageously declared in 2002 by the bishop of Amsterdam, Jozef Marianus Punt, as worthy of belief. Tragically, Bishop Punt’s declaration has been largely ignored by much of the Church hierarchy and the faithful.
The Blessed Mother in the Amsterdam apparitions called herself “The Lady of All Nations” and warned of a coming age of “degeneration, disaster, and war.” But she offered help if Catholics would petition the Holy Father to proclaim the fifth and final Marian dogma with Mary as “advocate, mediatrix, and co-redemptrix.” That proclamation would be the capstone of the Church’s four “dogmas” or solemnly pronounced doctrines about the Virgin Mary. First, Mary is the Mother of God (Council of Ephesus, 431). Second, she is a Perpetual Virgin (Lateran Council, 649). Third, Mary was conceived without original sin, or her “Immaculate Conception” (Bl. Pius IX, 1854). And fourth, Mary was assumed body and soul into heaven, or her “Assumption” (Pius XII, 1950).
The Lady of All Nations promised that the proclamation of the fifth and final Marian dogma would bring about a descent of the Holy Spirit in a fashion akin to the Pentecost and the founding of the Holy Catholic Church after Christ’s Ascension from earth to heaven. To prepare the world for this mysterious new Pentecost, the Lady of All Nations asked the faithful to share the image of her apparition in Amsterdam and to daily recite a short prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now your Spirit over the earth. Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster, and war. May the Lady of All Nations, the Blessed Virgin Mary, be our Advocate. Amen.
When one takes a glance at the world stage today, one sees the world in a state of degeneration, disaster, and war just as the Lady of All Nations had warned in Amsterdam decades ago. She revealed, for example, that the world’s climate would drastically change long before anyone ever uttered the words “climate change” as we commonly do today. Climate change is now on pace to happen 10 times faster than any change recorded in the past 65 million years, according to a team of Stanford University professors. Meanwhile, societies are crumbling, economies are failing such as the European Union’s monetary experiment, political chaos and violence are increasing, especially in the Middle East where Syria has used chemical weapons against civilians, all of which seems to be tearing the world apart. Social scientists have impressively harnessed information technology to graphically show the growing frequency and intensity of turmoil, protests, and violence since 1979 in the world. All of these events conform to the warnings of those given by the Lady of All Nations in Amsterdam to prove the authenticity of the apparitions there.
With the world’s descent into political, military, economic, environmental, and societal chaos, it behooves Catholics to contemplate the fifth Marian dogma as an unused weapon in the Church’s arsenal. The popes of Catholic Church, based on scripture and tradition, have officially taught over the course of centuries that the Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus, is also the Spiritual Mother of All Peoples. Mary performs this role as spiritual mother to humanity in three basic ways: as advocate, mediatrix, and co-redemptrix.
Our Lady’s role as advocate simply confirms that this mother intercedes for our wants and needs with a maternal perseverance and power beyond that of any of the other saints. Mary brings the needs of mankind to the throne of Christ. She is the principal intercessor on behalf of her earthly children, and as queen, she has the greatest possible intercessory power to Jesus, the king of the kingdom of God, for humanity’s needs. In the Old Testament, the queen mother of the king had the greatest power of intercession to her son, the king in the line of David, on behalf of the Jewish people. In the New Testament, Mary is the new queen mother who gives birth to the “king of kings,” and is crowned as the queen and advocate in the kingdom of God to become the greatest intercessor for the people of God to Christ the King. For this role of interceding for humanity, Mary is called the “advocate,” her most ancient title, dating back to the 2nd Century.
Mary is the mediatrix for humanity who spiritually nourishes her earthly children by dispensing the graces of salvation. At the Wedding of Cana, Mary interceded to bring the graces of Jesus to all of humanity. She “mediated” or interceded to bring Jesus himself, the source of all graces, into the world. Mary too was appointed by Jesus himself at the climax of his redeeming sacrifice on the cross to become the spiritual mother of all peoples and to dispense to humanity heavenly graces when he said to Mary, “Behold, your son.” Jesus then told John, and all those who seek to become beloved disciples of Jesus, to “behold your Mother.” For these roles in dispensing the saving graces of Jesus to her earthly children, Mary is called the “mediatrix of all graces.” As Bl. John Paul II explained, “mediatrix is implicit in the term, mother.” The papal Magisterium of the last two centuries has consistently taught this Marian role as mediatrix of all graces, and Pope Benedict XVI Emeritus published this same title on 11 February 2013, the day he announced his resignation.
Some readers at first glance of the proposed fifth dogma would understandably baulk at the concept of Mary as “co-redemptrix.” They might object that Mary was human while only her divine son Jesus could redeem humanity with his crucifixion. But taking a deeper look at the proposed dogma, one sees that it reinforces—and does not contradict— Church beliefs and teachings. Mary uniquely shared in the work of Jesus to redeem the human family, both by giving Jesus his body, the very instrument of redemption, and by suffering with Him at Calvary in a way unparalleled by another other creature. For this extraordinary role with Jesus in saving souls, Mary has been called the “co-redemptrix” in the Church since the 14th century. The prefix “co” means “with,” not “equal.” It must be stressed that Mary is not a goddess on a level or equality with Jesus, but rather she is the unique immaculate human co-redeemer with Jesus, just as every Christian is called to be a “co-redeemer in Christ,” as Bl. John Paul II was fond of saying.
It is clear then that the recognition of the Blessed Mother as advocate, mediatrix, and co-redemptrix, has a long tradition in the Church even if it has not yet been proclaimed dogma. Likewise, the petitioning of the Holy Father for the declaration of dogma is a Church tradition. Petition drives for Marian dogmas are simply Catholic precedence. They are not democratic power plays seeking to force the Pope’s hand. Instead, petition drives are to be seen as manifestations of the sensus fidelium (the “common consensus of the faithful”) in encouraging the Holy Father to a particular course of action which the faithful discern to be for the good of the Church.
Authentic Catholic petition drives must be a request of something that conforms to the faith and moral teachings of the Church and must be submitted with an unconditional obedience to the ultimate discernment and decision of the Vicar of Christ. The Marian dogmas of her Immaculate Conception and her Assumption, for example, were solemnly proclaimed only after a lengthy petition drive from the Catholic faithful to the Holy Father. Before the papal definition of the Immaculate Conception by Blessed Pius IX in 1854, millions of petitions from the Catholic world were sent to the Vatican, with particular perseverance coming from Spain and its Catholic government. In the case of the Assumption, infallibly declared by Pius XII in 1950, over 8 million petitions spanning 95 years were documented by the Holy Office in support of this Marian dogma.
History shows that graces have been poured on the Church after Marian dogmas are proclaimed. The historic situation of the papacy and the Church was bleak, for example, just before the proclamation of the Immaculate Conception. Pope Pius IX had been chased out of the Vatican by Masonic forces from southern Italy. While in exile in Gaeta, two cardinals approached the beleaguered Holy Father with the remedy to this dire situation: proclaim the dogma of the Immaculate Conception. Pius IX acquiesced to their request and from exile wrote to the world’s bishops to state his intention to proclaim the new Marian dogma. The dogma was proclaimed, the papacy was restored, the Vatican and Church were secured, and the Marian dogma of the Immaculate Conception was subsequently declared infallible by the Holy Father.
The proclamation of the fifth Marian dogma would satisfy God’s condition of never forcing grace upon us. The Holy Father’s free acknowledgement and solemn announcement of Mary’s roles as advocate, mediatrix, and co-redemptrix would allow her to fully enact these motherly roles of intercession on behalf of humanity. Since Mary’s motherly titles also are her motherly functions of grace for the Church, the more solemnly we acknowledge these motherly roles, the more powerfully she can exercise them. If these roles were to be infallibly proclaimed by the Holy Father as the highest authority of the world, this proclamation would inextricably lead to the fullest possible release of heavenly graces through our Blessed Mother.
The proclamation of the dogma of Mary “Advocate, Mediatrix, and Co-redemptrix” by the Holy Father would enable the Mother of Jesus to shower the world with a historic outpouring of grace, redemption, and peace in a new and dynamic way—an event which Marian apparitions like Fatima refer to as the “Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” Pope Francis has been on a blessed tirade of Marian teaching and witness starting with his very first papal act going to St. Mary Major’s Basilica in Rome to thank and honor Our Lady, to his return visit there in early Mary, and to his request to have his papacy consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima on 13 May. The Holy Father will be wielding a powerful spiritual weapon in one hand in October when he consecrates in the world to Our Lady of Fatima. We hope and pray that Pope Francis will soon pick up with his other hand the spiritual weapon the Lady of All Nations offered the Church in Amsterdam by proclaiming the fifth and final Marian dogma. The Holy Father and the Holy Catholic Church will need the weapons of both Fatima and Amsterdam to combat the onslaught of evil as evidenced by the world’s heavier, intensifying, and quickening degeneration, disaster, and war.

Chaplet of the Holy Spirit
Day by day, little by little, expanded and enriched in the light of the Truths contained in the Volumes of Luisa, it has become a wonderful source of meditation and a “navette” which guides through and around the mysteries of the Third Fiat (the “rounds of Sanctification”). But before starting the “trip”, as Jesus says in Volume 17, we are called to fuse ourselves in His Will (like Jesus taught Luisa, part by part—first our intellect, memory and will, then our senses, our breathing, our heartbeat, our motion and all of our being) and enter the “Order of Grace”—that is, the immense, incalculable, supernatural field of Action of the Holy Spirit.
And so, we can travel through the mysteries…in the sphere of Grace, offering glory, love and adoration to God the Holy Spirit, for all and in the hearts of all…
Come, Holy Spirit, enlighten my mind!
Come, inflame my heart!
“Oh God Who did instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us by the same Spirit to be truly wise and evermore to rejoice in His consolations, through Christ our Lord. Amen.”
A few short reflections may be made on ! seven glorious mysteries relating to seven wonderful operations of the Paraclete. These meditations should be made briefly, between every ten beads.
1st Mystery: Let us honor the Holy Spirit and adore Him Who is love substantial, proceeding from the Father and the Son, and uniting Them in an infinite and eternal charity.
In all the interior acts of the Holy Trinity (acts “ad intra”) as the Spirit proceeds continually and perpetually from the Father and the Son in perfect unity of Love and Will, let us ask Him to make us one with the Them as They are One
2nd Mystery: Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him in the Immaculate Conception of Mary, sanctifying her, from the first moment with plenitude of grace.
We honor the Holy Spirit in the act of the Immaculate Conception of Our Celestial Mother, conceived within immense oceans of Sanctity, Beauty, Love, Wisdom, …and all of the Divine qualities, so that Her little seed might remain intact and immaculate. These oceans of Divine qualities in which, through the Spirit, Mary was conceived, are still in Her power—and much more… They were continuously expanded by Her acts in the Divine Will, and now She ardently desires to share them with us. And we pray to be inundated by them to be renewed and transformed in the Life of the Divine Will
3rd Mystery: Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him in the Incarnation of the Spirit and adore Him in the Incarnation of the Word, the Son of God, by His Divine Nature, and the Son of the Virgin by the flesh.
Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit in the Mystery of the Incarnation of the Word, conceived not within seas of Grace and Divine qualities which emanate from the Spirit, but within the Source Itself of those seas—God. In Him we were conceived and through Him we pray to be reborn to New Life, here on earth—Life in the Divine Will
4th Mystery: Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him giving birth to the Church on the glorious day of Pentecost in the Cenacle.
In the Mystery of the Pentecost, we ask Him to renew this prodigy today, through Mary, in each creature, that we may become true apostles of His Holy Will
5th Mystery: Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him dwelling within the Church and assisting Her faithfully according to the Divine promise, even to the consummation of the world.
Let us honor the continuous action of the Spirit of guidance of the Church of Christ, from the first little seeds in the Upper Room through growth, persecutions, expansions, tribulations, …even through the great apostasy, in order to reach purification and the final triumph
6th Mystery: Let us honor the wonderful operation of the Holy Spirit creating within the Church that other Christ, the priest, and conferring the plenitude of the priesthood on the Bishops.
In the ministry of Priesthood and in all the Sacraments, we unite our will to His to redo, repair and offer each one of them in His Divine Will
7th Mystery: Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him in the heroic virtue of the saints in the Church, that hidden and marvelous work of the “Adorable Sanctifier”.
We honor the Holy Spirit in all graces of sanctification—the prime act which the Holy Spirit brings to each soul for her sanctification (Vol 17): the Will of God—in all the saints, and in the Great Gift which He desires to bestow now: the Will of God as Life operating in us. And so we can open the doors of every heart, accept the gifts of the Spirit in each one, repair for all the rejections on the part of creatures, which cause His “unspeakable moans” (Vol 17). We ask for all that each one needs…for some conversion, for some repentance, for some mercy, for some consolation, for some healing, for some reconciliation,… and we implore Him to dispose us and each creature the Greatest Gift of the Divine Will.

“And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed.”
In honor of the May 13 Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima to the children:
“Sing Praise, and Rejoice, O Daughter of Sion;
for Behold I Come, and I will Dwell in the Midst of Thee: said the Lord.” (Zach 2:10)
V34-12.8.36 – How in Her Conception, the Queen of Heaven was Conceived in the Merits, in the Life, in the Love and sufferings, of the future Redeemer, in order for the Divine Word to then be Conceived in Her so as to come to save the creatures.
My poor mind, immersing itself in the Divine Fiat, found in Act the Conception of the Immaculate Queen. He was All in Feast and Called everyone around Himself, Angels, Saints, in order to make seen the Unheard-of Prodigy, the Graces, the Love with which He Called this Sublime Creature from nothing, such that everyone would know and praise Her as their Queen and Mother of All.
But while I remained surprised, and I would have remained there who knows how long if my Sweet Jesus had not Called me by telling me: “I want to Honor My Celestial Mother. I want to Narrate the Story of Her Immaculate Conception. Only I can Speak of it, being Author of so Great a Prodigy. Now, My daughter, the First Act of this Conception was one Fiat of Ours, Pronounced with such Solemnity and with such Fullness of Grace, as to Enclose everything and everyone. We Centralized Everything in this Conception of the Virgin. In Our Divine Fiat, in which past and future do not exist, the Incarnation of the Word was held Present, and It made Her Conceived and Incarnated in the same Incarnation of Me, future Redeemer. My Blood that was in Act as if I Myself were Shedding it, continually Sprinkled Her, Embellished Her, Confirmed Her, and Fortified Her in a Divine Way.
“But it was not enough for My Love. All Her Acts, Words, and Steps, were first Conceived in My Acts, Words, and Steps, and then they had Life. My Humanity was the Refuge, the Hiding Place, the Embodiment of this Celestial Creature, such that if She Loved Us, Her Love was Incarnated and Conceived in My Love. And O! how She Loved Us. Her Love Enclosed everything and everyone. I can say that She Loved as a God Knows how to Love. She had Our same Follies of Love for Us and for all creatures, and that Loving one time, She Loves, She Always Loves, without ever stopping. Her prayer was Conceived in My Prayer and therefore it had an Immense Value, a Power over Our Supreme Being—and who could deny Her anything? Her sufferings, Her Sorrows, Her Martyrdoms, that were so many, were first Conceived in My Humanity, and then She felt in Herself the Life of the Sufferings and of the excruciating Martyrdoms, all Animated by Divine Strength.
Therefore one can say She was Conceived in Me. From Me Her Life went forth. Everything that I did and Suffered lined up around this Holy Creature in order to Court Her and continuously Pour Myself over Her, and be able to tell Her: ‘You are the Life of My Life, You are All Beautiful, You are the First Redeemed, My Divine Fiat has Molded You, It has Breathed on You, and It has made You be Conceived in My Works, in My Humanity Itself.’
“Now, My daughter, Conceiving this Celestial Creature in the Incarnate Word, was done by Us with Highest Wisdom, with Unreachable Power, with Inexhaustible Love, and with Decorum that Befits Our Works. I, Word of the Father, having to Descend from Heaven in order to Incarnate Myself in the Womb of a Virgin, just virginity and having made Her exempt from the stain of original sin was not sufficient for the Sanctity of My Divinity, therefore it was necessary for Our Love and for Our Sanctity that this Virgin first would be Conceived in Me with all those Prerogatives, Virtues, and Beauties that the Life of the Incarnate Word Must Possess, and then, therefore, I could be Conceived in the One who had been Conceived in Me.” And I Found in Her My Heaven, the Sanctity of My Life, My Own Blood that had Generated Her and Watered Her so many times. I found My Own Will, that Communicating Its Divine Fecundity to Her, Formed the Life of Her and the Son of God. My Divine Fiat, in order to make Her Worthy of being able to Conceive Me, held Her Invested and Under Its Continuous Empire that Possesses All Acts as if they were One Single Act. In order to give Her Everything, It called into Act My Foreseen Merits, My Whole Life, and It Continuously Poured it within Her Beautiful Soul.
“Therefore I Alone can tell the True Story of the Immaculate Conception and of Her Whole Life, because I Conceived Her in Me and I AM Aware of Everything. And if the Holy Church speaks about the Celestial Queen, they can say only the first letters of the alphabet about Her Sanctity, Greatness, and Gifts with which She was Enriched. If you knew the Contentment that I feel when I speak about My Celestial Mother, who knows how many demands you would make Me in order to give Me the Joy of letting Me Speak about the One Whom I Love So Much, and Who has Loved Me.”
From the Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will
Day Thirteen – (…) My child, courage, do not fear; your Mama is all for you, and today I was waiting for you so that My Heroism and My Triumph in the Sacrifice may Infuse in you strength and courage, that I may see my child triumphant in her pains, with the heroism of bearing them with love and in order to do the Divine Will.
Now, my child, listen to Me: I had just turned three years old when my parents made known to Me that they wanted to consecrate Me to the Lord in the Temple. My Heart Rejoiced in hearing this – that is, Consecrating Myself and spending my years in the house of God. But beneath my Joy there was a Sorrow – a privation of the dearest persons one can have on earth, which were My dear parents. I was little, I needed their maternal cares; I was depriving Myself of the presence of two great saints. Moreover, I saw that as the day approached on which they were to deprive themselves of Me, who rendered their lives full of joy and of happiness, they felt such bitterness as to feel themselves dying. But, though suffering, they were disposed to make the heroic act of taking Me to the Lord.
My parents loved Me in the order of God, and considered Me a great gift, given to them by the Lord; and this gave them the strength to make the painful sacrifice. Therefore, My child, if you want to have invincible strength to suffer the hardest pains, let all your things be in the order of God, and hold them as precious gifts given to you by the Lord.
Now, You Must Know that I Prepared Myself with Courage for My Departure for the Temple, because, as I Delivered My human will to the Divine Being and the Supreme Fiat Took Possession of My Whole Being, I Acquired All Virtues as My Own Nature. I was Dominator of Myself; All Virtues were in Me like many noble princesses, and according to the circumstances of My Life, they promptly showed themselves, to do their Office without any resistance. In vain would they have called Me Queen, had I not Possessed the Virtue of Being Queen over Myself. Therefore, I had in My Dominion Perfect Charity, Invincible Patience, Enrapturing Sweetness, Profound Humility, and the Whole Endowment of the other Virtues. The Divine Will Rendered My Little Earth of My Humanity Fortunate, Always Flowery, and without the thorns of vices.
Do you see then, dear child, what it means to Live of Divine Will? Its Light, Its Sanctity and Power Convert All Virtues into one’s nature; nor does It Lower Itself to Reign in a soul where there is a rebellious nature – no, no. It is Sanctity, and It wants the nature in which It Must Reign to be ordered and holy. Therefore, by the Sacrifice of going to the Temple, it was Conquests that I made; and over this Sacrifice, the Triumph of a Divine Will was Formed in Me. And these Triumphs brought into Me New Seas of Grace, of Sanctity and of Light – to the extent of feeling Happy in My Pains, in order to be able to Conquer New Triumphs.
Now, my child, place your hand upon your heart, and tell your Mama: do you feel your nature changed into Virtue? Or, do you feel the thorns of impatience, the noxious herbs of agitations, the bad humors of affections which are not holy? Listen – let your Mama Mary do it; place your human will into My Hands, determined in not wanting it anymore, and I shall make you be Possessed by the Divine Will, which will Banish everything from you; and what you have not done in many years, you shall do in one day, which shall be the Beginning of True Life, of Happiness, and of True Sanctity.
In the Name of Jesus,
in the Unity, Power and Love of the Holy Spirit,
Under the Mantle of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
with All the Angels and Saints,
through the intercession
of the little daughter of the Divine Will,
Please Accept this Solemn Act
of Reparation and Consecration
of Russia, the United States and All Nations,
with All peoples, past, present and future,
as we Honor the 102nd Anniversary
of Our Lady of Fatima.
On behalf of all mankind we beg You,
Come Holy Spirit!
May this Consecration hasten the
Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
and the Eucharistic Reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
May the Coming of the Kingdom,
and of the Fulfillment of the prayer to You,
Our Heavenly Father,
“May Your Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”
be accomplished and completed
in Your Most Holy Divine Will.
WE BELIEVE, WE RECEIVE!
