The Fatima epoch: has it finished? (Part VII)

This part is a continuation of the speech by Stanislav Protasenko. His speech was made during a conference in Moscow. On the 4th and 5th of November 2017 in Moscow (Russia), Fr. Shane Pezzutti and faithful of the SSPX in Russia, co-operating with the Fatima Centre, organized a Conference about Fatima in Moscow.

As to WWII, the following event is not widely known: August 19, 1939 – as we know, the pact between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union (known as the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact) was signed on August 23, 1939, but factually it was decided earlier, on that date, August 19. On this day the German-Soviet Credit Agreement, which preceded the final Pact, was signed. Also, this date is the date of Stalin’s alleged speech (alleged, because some historians, following the Soviet historiography, denied the existence of such a speech; however, other historians thought that this speech was real) in which he explained that the USSR needed to reject the union with Britain and France in favor of an agreement with Germany and that a conflict between Germany and Britain and France was in the interest of the USSR.

German Ambassador to USSR Schulenburg was convinced that the decision about the Pact between Germany and Stalin (with his Secret protocol) was made exactly on the day of August 19. After the signing of the Pact, Hitler understood that Stalin would not impede his actions in Poland, thus the road to the world war was open. I think all these events of great historical importance, which happened on the “Fatima dates” in the period before WWII, all show us well the significance and authenticity of the Fatima message. Because we are limited in time, I will only name some of the similar dates from the period after WWII.

May 13, 1936 – After the victory of the far-left Popular Front (coalition of Socialists, Communists and left-wing Liberals, supported by Anarchists) in General Elections in the winter of that year – after which Azana became president of the Republic – his associate, Santiago Casares Quiroga, became the new prime-minister. During the famous parliamentary debates of June 16, during which the leader of the right-wing opposition, monarchist Jose Calvo Sotelo, blamed the Popular Front government for the disorder and violence that reigned in Spain those days, Casares answered to him that if something happens, the only responsible party will be Calvo Sotelo himself. Leftwing radicals who attended the session, understood this menace [statement] in the sense, that if they commit some actions against right-wing opposition and Calvo Sotelo personally, they will not be punished by the government.

 July 13, 1936 – At 3:00 a.m., a group of the Republican police, accompanied by the members of the Spanish Socialist Party, came to the Calvo Sotelo apartment in Madrid, unlawfully arrested him and later murdered him in the police car.

The murder of the leader of the parliamentary opposition by the state police had such resounding effect on the country, that it was exactly after that, many people, including General Franco, who still doubted about their joining the possible insurrection against governing revolutionary forces, decided to act before it was too late.

The ensuing insurrection which began on July 17-18, 1936, would end in April of 1939 with (to use the words of Pope Pius XII) “the victory of Catholic Spain.” The other interesting fact about all this – Jose Calvo Sotelo, murdered on that “Fatima date” of July 13, 1936, was born in the town of Tuy, in a house situated not far from the convent in which in 1929 the Holy Trinity with Our Lady appeared to Sister Lucy!

September 1931 Japan invaded Manchuria in China, the event which many historians now consider as the first in the chain of events which led to the Second World War.

 1931 – Our Lord said to Sister Lucy: “They did not wish to heed My request! … Like the King of France they will repent of it, and they will do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread its errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions against the Church”.

1929 – by interesting coincidence that year was named in Soviet historiography “a year of Great Break”, because in 1929 the Soviet government finally renounced the previous (less radical and more liberal) economic policy and accelerated collectivization of agriculture directed against the Russian peasantry. The reaction to this policy was the wave of peasants’ revolts in many regions of the USSR during 1929–1931.

August 19, 1927 – Soviet press (official Izvestia newspaper) made public a Declaration of Sergius Stragorodsky, Acting Patriarchal Locum Tenens of the Orthodox church in Russia, about the “unconditional loyalty of the Orthodox Church to the Soviet state”. Although this important document was signed before, it was made public exactly on the “Fatima day” of August 19. Unfortunately, this event is not widely known outside Russia, including in religious circles, although it is directly linked with religion.[1] This document laid the foundation of such phenomenon (which the Orthodox opposing him called heresy) as Сергианство (Sergianism).

The Fatima epoch: has it finished? (Part II)

June 13, 1918 – near the Russian city of Perm, Bolsheviks murdered the first member of the Russian Imperial family, who was none other than the Grand Duke Michael, in whose favor Emperor Nicholas II abdicated the throne in the spring of 1917. Though Michael did not accept the throne, he was, according to some historians and jurists, factually the last possessor of the Russian throne. Thus the Romanov dynasty began with Michael and ended with Michael. In some sense, we can consider this as a symbolic end of the Old Russia. The Grand Duke’s remains are still not found.
