A Terrifying Warning
by Christopher A. Ferrara
On May 21, 2002 the Associated Press reported a government warning that, one would hope, will jar even the Fatima revisionist dupes out of their stupefied repetition of the Party Line that “Russia is consecrated. The Third Secret belongs to the past.”
According to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Islamic terrorists “will inevitably get their hands” on weapons of mass destruction, “and they will not hesitate to use them.” So Rumsfeld testified before the Senate Appropriations Committee.
As reported by AP, Rumsfeld said that “Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya and North Korea are developing such weapons of mass destruction and will supply them to terrorists to which they already are linked.” Furthermore, according to Gen. Richard Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Al Qaeda terrorist network is only wounded, not dead: “Just like a wounded animal is the most dangerous, they still pose a threat to our armed forces.”
Then there is the warning of Tom Ridge, Director of “Homeland Security”, who says that new terror attacks on Americans are “not a matter of ‘if’, but ‘when’.” AP notes that this prediction is based “in part on new intelligence suggesting plotting by Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda network has been on the rise over the past few weeks,” according to “a senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity.”
Finally, there is the warning of FBI director Robert Mueller, who says quite simply: “There will be another terrorist attack. We will not be able to stop it.” According to Mueller, “suicide bombers like those who have attacked Israeli buses and restaurants are inevitable in the United States.”
Yes, more terrorist attacks are, humanly speaking, inevitable and unpreventable. But Catholics know that Our Lady of Guadalupe is patroness of the Americas by the decree of Pope Pius XII, and that Our Lady of Fatima has offered man the key to world peace — true peace — in our time. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary — for America and for Russia — the death and mass destruction that is surely coming can be avoided.
“If My requests are granted, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.” But Her requests have not been granted. That is why we live in fear of what is to come, including the terrifying prospect foretold by a representative of the heavenly office of Homeland Security: “various nations will be annihilated.”
May the Lord deliver the Church and the world from the fallible, obstinate men who have thwarted fulfillment of the Virgin’s great promise to the world.
