The Importance of the First Saturday Devotion

Picture source

 There is a tendency nowadays, in some quarters, to downplay the importance of Fatima, perhaps dismissing it as not "intellectual" enough, or even as something of an embarrassment in a modern Church. But the fact that all the popes since Pius XII have given it such strong support is an implicit rejection of such a position. In particular, Pope John Paul II has gone out of his way to affirm the importance of the message of Fatima, having recently beatified, in the Holy Year 2000, two of the three children, Jacinta and Francisco. He also authorized the release of the third part of the secret and directed Cardinal Ratzinger to publish it together with a Theological Commentary.

  1. Esther,

    I am a small publisher of Catholic novels - Catacombs Press (formerly Lyons Den Publishing), based in Los Angeles.

    I have a title, The Fatima Code, that I am offering to you as a complimentary review copy . We would be very grateful if you or others you know may read it.

    The Fatima Code is a play on Noah's Ark ... Only this time it's Mary's Ark - How the Church survives a global attack coordinated by the world's elites. The overall plot of The Fatima Code is driven by Saint Montfort's True Devotion. The author uses the end-times novel formula as a stage from which to promote the True Devotion to Catholics today.
