With the centennial of Fatima looming, the air is ripe with possibilities for October 2017. While some are pinning their hopes on some sort of chastisement, others purport a world wide illumination of conscience to herald in the reign of Mary's Immaculate Heart.
My own thoughts are, that amidst the din of secularization and persecution; there are some small signs that God is active in providing some hints that it has already begun.
I am not going to mention the "M" word, because for some reason it has passed me by, I've never quite found the need to enter the debate. I prefer to read the lives of the approved mystics of the church, and on the whole there are enough of them already approved to keep one interested for some time!
We all yearn for the promised era of peace, yet it may arrive so subtly that we hardly notice for a while! Anticipation is understandable, though some speculation is merely a waste of time; better spend it then in continuance of our beads, with the intent to pray our rosaries from the heart.
My dream is to make a Santos figure figure of the Blessed Virgin, and dress her up in a tailored gown in readiness for some not yet known celebration...
Not sure if we have the weather for this kind of figure - but then there are always decorated canopies in some dusty corner just waiting to be revived again! love this little film, (Vestir a la Virgen - the clothing of the Virgin) hope you enjoy it also.
