Half a million people attended an open-air mass in Fatima, Portugal as Pope Francis made two shepherd children who died nearly a century ago saints
“The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.” Jeremiah 7:18 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: Clutching Babylonian rosary beads and praying to statues, the Roman Catholic faithful showed up in massive numbers to worship at the feet of Pope Francis as he declared two children who were visited by demons at Fatima in 1917 to be “saints”. During the mass, he held high an Egyptian sun disk as he prayed to his god. Everything about the Roman Catholic Church has nothing to do with the Bible, but with Babylonian pagan worship. If you are a Catholic, like I was for 30 years, you need to run from that Godless, pagan system that teaches you to revere and pray to pagan idols. Mary does not hear your prayer, she didn’t remain a virgin, and she doesn’t appear to anyone ever at any time. Run.
Pope Francis proclaimed Francisco and Jacinta Marto saints at the start of Mass on Saturday marking the centenary of their visions. One hundred years ago, the two children, and their cousin Lucia, said the Virgin Mary appeared to them and gave them three secrets, including the end of the Cold War and World War Two.
This is what idol worship looks like, now bow and kiss his ring:
But the children were not believed and civil authorities threatened them with death by boiling oil if they didn’t recant their story. But they held fast and eventually the church recognized the apparitions as authentic in 1930.
Pope Fatima: Homily for Canonization Mass
Pope Francis prayed at the tombs of two of the Portuguese shepherd children ahead of the Canonization Mass, which was held in the open air and attended by half a million believers.
Among those in the shrine’s vast square was Brazilian boy Lucas Baptista who in 2013 suffered severe head trauma he was not expected to survive. His medically inexplicable healing was the ‘miracle’ needed for the siblings Francisco and Jacinta Marto to be canonised.
The Fatima demon visitation in Portugal in 1917:
Lucas and the pope embraced during the Mass.
‘Our Lady foretold, and warned us about, a way of life that is godless and indeed profanes God in his creatures,’ Francis said in his homily. ‘Such a life, frequently proposed and imposed, risks leading to hell.’
He urged Catholics today to use the example of the Marto siblings and draw strength from God, even when adversity strikes.
The demonic visitation of Fatima:
‘We can take as our examples Saint Francisco and Saint Jacinta, whom the Virgin Mary introduced into the immense ocean of God’s light and taught to adore him,’ he said. ‘That was the source of their strength in overcoming opposition and suffering.’
The Martos are now the youngest-ever saints who didn’t die as martyrs.
Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims were on hand, many of whom had spent days at Fatima in quiet prayer, reciting rosaries before a statue of the Madonna. They clapped in admiration after the pope recited the rite declaring the Martos saints. source
