Mary Feast-Fatima Apparitions 13th May

what is hell like
Our Lady Of Fatima’s Heart Surrounded By Thorns

On the Feast Day of Fatima-13th May-we rejoice that God sent his Holy Mother to us with a message of peace and prayer to pray for souls.

Sr Lucia, one of the visionaries, died in 2005. She was left on earth to spread the message of Fatima around the world, which, ironically, she did from her enclosed Carmel Convent.

"My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge, and the way that will lead 
you to God." By Dom Augustine Marie, OSB -Edited and notes by 
Br Sean, OSsS 

"I am the Lady of the Rosary, I have come to warn the faithful to 
amend their lives and ask for pardon for their sins. They must not 
offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended 
by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue 
saying it every day. " 

Our Lady gravely said, "Sacrifice yourselves for sinners and say 
often, especially when you make some sacrifice, 'O my Jesus, 
this is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and 
in reparation for the offenses committed against the 
Immaculate Heart of Mary." 

On July 13, 1917 the Blessed Virgin unveiled a terrifying reality 
before the three children's eyes. Lucia recounts: "Our Lady 
showed us a great sea of fire, which seemed to be under the earth. 
Plunged in this fire were demons and souls, in human form, 
like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished 
bronze, floating about in this conflagration in clouds of 
smoke, lifted by flames coming out of their bodies. They 
rose and fell on all sides, like sparks in roaring fires,
without weight or direction, amid shrieks and groans of 
pain and despair that terrified us and made us tremble with 
fear. The demons could be distinguished by their terrifying 
and repellent likeness to frightful and unknown animals, black 
and transparent like burning coals. This vision lasted but a 
moment, thanks to our good Mother from Heaven who had warned 
us beforehand, and promised to take us to Heaven. Otherwise, 
I think we would have died of horror and fear. Then we raised 
our eyes to Our Lady, who said with kindness and sadness: 
'You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. 
To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion 
to My Immacidate Heart. If people do what I am going to tell 
you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace." 

Our Lady further said, "Pray, pray a great deal and make 
many sacrifices, for many souls go to Hell because they 
have no one to make sacrifices and to pray for them." 
(Fatima in Lucia's Own Words) 

The existence of Hell arouses disputes. Sister Lucia wrote, 
a few years before her death on February 13, There is no 
shortage of unbelievers in the world who deny these truths, 
but they are no less true for being denied. Their disbelief 
does not save unbelievers from the horrors of Hell, should 
a life of sin lead them there. ... At Fatima, (God) sent us 
His Message as one more proof of these truths. This Message
recalls them to us, so that we do not let ourselves be fooled 
by the false doctrines of unbelievers who deny them, or of 
deceivers who distort them. To this end, the Message assures 
us that Hell is a fact, and that the souls of poor sinners 
end up there." (Calls from the Message of Fatima, 2003, ch. 14) 
The Blessed Virgin told them to keep this vision secret. She did 
not permit Lucia to reveal it until 1941. Jacinta retained an 
impression of it which left a profound mark on her. From 
this day on, she was very preoccupied with the fate of poor 
souls who went to Hell. She often sat on the ground or on a 
rock, and, deep in thought, she would say, "Oh! Hell! How 
sorrowful I am for the souls who are going to Hell! " Yet 
she did not confine herself to futile pain but she prayed 
and sacrificed heroically for those who were in danger of
being lost. 

A painful reality 

The vision of Hell which the three children were favored 
with is not an exaggeration of the reality it represented. 
It is a presentation of it within the grasp of the human 
mind. In 1992, Lucia, who had been a Carmelite in Coimbra, 
Portugal since 1948, told a Cardinal who had come to visit 
her, "Hell is a reality. . . Continue to preach about Hell, 
for Our Lord Himself spoke of Hell and it is in the Holy 
Scriptures. God condemns no one to Hell. People condemn 
themselves to Hell. God has given mankind the freedom of 
choice, and He respects this human freedom. » 

Our Lady appeared to Jacinta several times between 
December 1919 and February 1920. Our Lady told her 
many things including: 

"The sins of the world are very great ... If men only 
knew what eternity is, they would do everything in 
their power to change their lives. " 

"Fly from riches and luxury; love poverty and 
silence; have charity, even for bad people. " 

"More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh
than for any other reason. "[1] 
"Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend 
Our Lord very much. " "Woe to women lacking in modesty. "[2] 

"The Mother of God wants more virgin souls bound by the vow
of chastity. " 
"Confession is a sacrament of mercy and we must confess 
with joy and trust. " 
"Many marriages are not of God and do not please Our Lord " 
"Our Lady can no longer uphold the arm of Her Divine Son 
which will strike the world. If people amend their lives, Our 
Lord will even now save the world, but if they 
do not, punishment will come. " "People must renounce sin and 
not persist in it, as has been done until now. It is 
essential to repent greatly. " 

"Tell everybody that God gives graces through the 
Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask graces from Her 
and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated 
together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them 
to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to Her. " 

The vision of hell was shown at the beginning of this 
century to impress upon men and to confirm the doctrine 
of Hell; thereby influencing man to stop offending God 
by sin. Of the three children who saw hell, Jacinta was 
the most affected by this vision. The following are 
some of her words on hell. 

"Oh, Hell! Oh, Hell!" "Mother of God have pity on those 
who do not amend their lives." "If men only know what 
awaits them in eternity, they would do everything in 
their power to change their lives." 

Often she would say to her brother, "Francisco, are you praying 
with me? We must pray very much to save souls from hell, so 
many go there. So many!" 

At times she would ask of Lucia, "Why doesn't Our Lady show 
Hell to sinners? If only they saw it, they would never commit 
sins again." 

Finally she said, "Look, I am going to heaven soon but you are 
to stay here. If Our Lady lets you, tell everyone what hell is 
like so that they won't sin anymore and not go there." 

Later Interview with Sr. Lucia on Hell 

The following is a rare interview with Sister Lucia 
[the Fatima visionary who died in 2005], by Father Lombardi. 
It was recorded in the Vatican weekly "Osservatore della 
Domenica" February 7, 1954. 

Fr. Lombardi: "Tell me, is the 'Better World Movement' 
a response of the Church to the words spoken to Our Lady?" 

Lucia: "Father, there is certainly a great need for this 
renewal. If it is not done, and taking into account the 
present development of humanity, only a limited 
number of the human race will be saved." 

Fr. Lombardi: "Do you really believe that many will go to 
Hell? I hope that God will save the greater part of 
humanity." [He had just written a book entitled: Salvation 
for Those Without Faith] 

Lucia: "Father, many will be lost." 

Fr. Lombardi: "It is true that the world is full of evil, 
but there is always a hope of salvation." 

Lucia: "No Father, many will be lost." 

Father Lombardi remembered that Lucia had seen Hell and 
added: "Her words disturbed me. I returned to Italy 
with that grave warning impressed on my heart."[3] 

The vision of hell was shown at the beginning of this

"Oh, Hell! Oh, Hell!" "Mother of God have pity on those

The vision of hell was not revealed until 1941. 

Our Lady at Fatima, during all six of her apparitions 
told the children they must pray, especially the rosary. 
The three children responded generously to Our Lady's 
requests. What is keeping you from doing the same thing? 
Do not say, "I do not have the time! " Because if you are 
too busy to spend time with God in prayer, then you are 
busier than God intends you to be! Meditate upon the 
following words of Our Lord. "What does it profit a 
man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss 
of his own soul?" (Matt 16 26) 

Fatima Prayers (Prayers revealed to the Fatima 
visionaries by an angel and Our Lady) 

"O my God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You. 
I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, 
do not hope and do not love You. " 

"O Most Holy Trinity I adore You. My God, my God, 
I love You in the Most Blessed Sacrament. " 

'Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore 
Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, 
Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the Tabernacles
of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges 
and indifferences by which He is offended. And by the infinite 
merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of 
Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners. " 

Our Lady gravely said, Sacrifice yourselves for sinners and 
say often, especially when you make some sacrifice, 'Jesus, 
this is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, 
and in reparation for the offenses committed against the 
Immaculate Heart of Mary. ' 

"When you say the Rosary, say after each mystery: 'O my Jesus, 
forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell; and lead 
all I souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy 
mercy'. " 

NOTES 

1. "More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than 
for any other reason. " Sr Lucia, the last living Fatima seer, 
said this refers primarily to sins against chastity, also called 
sins of impurity. The reason for this statement is not because 
sins against chastity are the most grievous sins, but the most 
common and, as Sr Lucia stated, "because of conscience, " since 
sins of impurity are less likely to be repented of than other sins. 
Why? 1) because the sense of injustice committed, which is the 
primary stimulus to repent of one's sins, is not strongly felt 
when engaging in them, with the exception of adultery; 2) there 
is a greater sense of shame when committing certain impure acts and 
hence greater difficulty confessing them in the sacrament of 
confession, or even repenting of them in one's heart; 3) sexual 
activity of all kinds is presented by our post-Christian — even 
anti-Christian — popular culture as natural and good, and sexual 
abstinence is even taught to be unhealthy. The sixth commandment, 
relating to chastity, has always been called "the difficult 
commandment." Today, with pornography everywhere and women and 
girls dressing more immodestly than ever, it can almost be 
called "the impossible commandment." However, Jesus assures 
us: "What is impossible with men is possible with 
God." (Lk 18:27) We may add that all who invoke the Blessed 
Virgin Mary for help in overcoming sins of impurity, will 
receive the grace to do so, as she herself has revealed to 
St Bridget of Sweden and various other saints. And those 
who strive to live chaste lives know from experience, when 
sins of impurity are humbly repented of and confessed, a 
great burden is removed from our consciences, and we 
experience that peace of soul that the world and 
carnal indulgence cannot give. 

2. Jacinta, before she died, said Our Lady had told her 
that certain fashions would be introduced that would 
greatly offend Our Lord, who had said in the gospel, "every one 
who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery 
with her in his heart" (Mt 5.28). Saint John Chrysostom 
instructed women of all times about dress when in the 
fourth century he declared: "You carry your snare everywhere 
and spread your nets in all places. You allege that you never 
invited others to sin. You did not, indeed, by your words, 
but you have done so by your dress and your deportment. ... 
When you have made another sin in his heart, how canyon be 
innocent? Tell me, whom does this world condemn? Whom 
do judges punish? Those who drink poison or those who prepare 
it and administer the fatal potion? You have prepared the 
abominable cup, you have given the death dealing drink, and you 
are more criminal than are those who poison the body; you murder 
not the body but the soul. And it is not to enemies you do this, 
nor are you urged on by any imaginary necessity, nor provoked by 
injury, but out of foolish vanity and pride. " The late Father 
Bernard A. Kunkel, a great defender of modesty and decency, said 
concerning the words of Our Lady of Fatima: "She knew that... 
forces of evil would design these fashions, together with the 
filthy literature... movies and television shows... all as part 
of their program to break down morality, especially among the 
young people. Our Lady was only exposing this plan." '
