Russia Gears Up for Nuclear War
by Christopher A. Ferrara
March 6, 2013
On the heels of Pope Benedict's abdication, we have a report by Bill Gertz at Washington Free Beacon that “Russian nuclear forces conducted a major exercise last month [February 2013] that tested the transport of both strategic and tactical nuclear weapons near Europe, according to United States officials.”
Note well: near Europe. Including Italy, where it would appear (from that portion of the Third Secret published in 2000) that a future Pope escapes a devastated city filled with the dead only be to be killed himself in what could well be a post-nuclear war scenario.
Gertz's report notes: “The exercise raised concerns inside the Pentagon and with the U.S. European Command because it was the largest exercise of its kind in 20 years and involved heightened alert status of Russian nuclear forces.”
Well, this must be embarrassing news for such neo-Catholic luminaries as Father Andrew Apostoli and Michael La Corte over at the former Blue Army, which laid down its arms in the mid-1980s and is now the Vatican-approved “World Apostolate of Fatima,” whose mission is to reduce the Fatima message to prayer and penance — and let's have no more talk about the Consecration of Russia or that pestiferous Third Secret.
But how could Russia have been consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary if, as Gertz reports, "The exercises followed a recent surge in Russian strategic bomber flights that include a recent circling of the U.S. Pacific island of Guam by two Tu-95 Bear bombers and simulated bombing runs by Tu-95s against Alaska and California in June and July." Mock attacks on the United States by Russian nuclear bombers hardly bespeak the conversion of Russia.
The Pope has abdicated and is now, to all appearances, a “Bishop dressed in White,” concerning whom one might “have the impression that he was the Pope,” as Sister Lucy's record of the vision pertaining to the Third Secret relates. Russia has just suffered a meteor strike, lightning struck the dome of Saint Peter's Basilica within hours of the Pope's resignation, an earthquake shook Castel Gandolfo days after the “retired” Pope arrived there, and Russia continues massive practice runs for nuclear war.
But don't worry: the World Apostolate of Fatima has covered its bases in case the world explodes. As I note in my book False Friends of Fatima, Mr. La Corte, clearly sensing that the “conversion of Russia” isn't going so well, recently opined that if the world does plunge into an apocalypse it will be because “We're not doing our part, so we're slipping back again, and we can fall right into that problem we had in the past, and nations are again on the precipice of perhaps being annihilated if we don't wake up.”
Yes, we've already had the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart. Perhaps you missed it. And now, according to the “World Apostolate of Fatima,” we are facing once again the prospect of being annihilated. And it will all be our fault, not the fault of the Pope and the bishops for refusing to consecrate the nation of Russia as the Virgin requested so many years ago. So, even if Russia initiated a nuclear war, the Fatima revisionists (if any of them survived) would still refuse to admit that Russia was never consecrated to Mary. Any explanation but the obvious one!
Now, that kind of stubbornness we can only view as the result of diabolical confusion — like the mysterious failure of Pope after Pope to heed the simplest of commands regarding the consecration of what Lucy rightly called “that poor nation.” Let us pray that the soon-to-be-elected Pope finally brings this devilish farce to an end.
I will be reporting on the papal conclave daily from Rome. You can read and see the reports at fatima.org. May God protect His holy Church.
