The purpose of this article is twofold; first, it’s purpose is to promote and spread the message of Our Lady of Fatima as we celebrate the 100th anniversary, and second to explain that when we promote fake equality and untruthfulness it is damaging.
First, let us focus on the message of Our Lady of Fatima. Our Blessed Mother appeared to 3 young shepherd children Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, six times over a period of 5 months in Fatima, Portugal starting on May 13, 1917 and ending on October 13, 1917. WWI was still raging and her mission as she was sent by God was to promote peace, warn against the final result of sin and teach us how to draw closer to God and attain heaven, which is by unceasing prayer, as her Son and our Lord taught us.
These apparitions and messages given by Our Lady at Fatima may be the most important ever given in the history of the Church since Jesus ascended into heaven.
The simple message is fourfold. Attend Confession and Mass, pray the Rosary and meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary, especially during the first Saturday in 5 consecutive months.
Our Blessed Mother reinforced everything Jesus had already told us; Heaven and Hell do exist! Unceasing prayer and sacrifice is needed to save souls from Hell! Jesus is the way to Heaven and The Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Heart is eternally grafted into her Son’s Sacred Heart! The message is clear!
Our Lady of Fatima in 1917, rightly prophesied WWII before it broke out due to the sins and errors of mankind and a lack of faith, sorrow for sin and repentance.
The United States of America take heed in the year 2017 of our Lord!
Errors and Lies would be spread by Governments and Cultures as we saw in Nazi Germany and Communist Soviet Union and as we see today in the U.S.A., Europe and beyond.
Mary and Jesus tell us the truth, Hell exists and sadly people go there. But Our Lady of Fatima brings us great hope, even today as she instructs what we are to do: Pray, Penance, Action! It not only helps us but it helps others.

Secondly, what do I mean by – the problem with fake equality? Well, it has roots in everyone gets a trophy and one world order, which means we are all the same.
We are not the same. Each of us is uniquely created in the image of God. Different skin color, different levels of intelligence, different athletic abilities, different musical abilities, different artistic abilities, even different levels of learning and ability to speed read.
None of this diminishes our value in God’s eyes nor in the eyes of those who truly love us.
But the fact is as in one example here, Kevin Love is not equal to Lebron James in talent in the game of basketball. Both are professional NBA players and teammates and both are needed on the team to help the team win because each brings unique and special talents to it’s team to help it succeed, similar to the body of Christ! We need the different talents and gifts of each of us to help, sustain and grow the Church!
It is the same for the game of life including gender and marriage. Men and Women bring unique and different Charisms or gifts to each other in marriage that lift up the marriage to a mystical bond in Christ!
Complimentarity and Subsidiarity make any society GO! The man and woman in marriage perfectly compliment each other in every way, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually as the family unit – man, woman, children, all in the spirit of subsidiarity make up the domestic church and handle their own affairs without intervention from an outside source like the government or culture.
Let me further point out that man and woman, whether heterosexual or homosexual, black, white, red or yellow, Christian, Jew, Muslim or something else, tall short, bald, disabled, healthy or not and born or unborn all have unique gifts and talents and all are called to glorify God and help others by submitting each of our wills to God and living chaste lives in the service of others starting within our own families, neighborhoods and communities!
We don’t discriminate, ever against anyone! All are one in Christ Jesus our Lord to the glory of God in the Communion of the Holy Spirit, the Apostles and all the Angels and saints with Christ as our Head and Mary most Holy, the Blessed Mother as the Queen, whether the individual is a believer or not.
There is a natural law that we didn’t create, it’s beyond us, and because of natural law we are called to be pro life in every way which goes far beyond protesting for or against abortion, euthanasia, genocide, the environment, racism and the death penalty and immigration. Natural law applies to plant and animal life. Natural law states that pregnancy is created via a male and a female including the animal kingdom. Natural Law states a man cannot carry a child because man has no womb or the necessary body parts. Two homosexual men and two homosexual women are unable to conceive a child together naturally between the two of them. All of this is part of being pro life. I am pro life in every sense of the word!
Everyone is called to be pro life in every way and we welcome those from the LGBTQ community to stand with us as pro lifers and we welcome them into our Church, but it does not change the fact that those in the LGBTQ community and/or those that support it’s lifestyle, as it’s the lifestyle, not the person, that we call out, are in direct contradiction with what it means to be pro life naturally.
Use of artificial contraception also stands directly against life.
Core values and traditions is what the Church defends justly.
That in no way means I or we hate any single person who disagrees or is different from us and what we believe. It also doesn’t mean I or we are judging them for a decision they have made. Nor does it mean they have to turn away from the Church or being pro life.
In reality we need to pray for them, pray for all! Friend and Foe alike. Every DAY!!!
But we do need to be clear on all issues! We also need to be clear that we will not be bullied or allow others to call us bigots when it’s not true, and when we speak truth.
Educate yourself and come into the TRUTH!!!
The culture has become so engrossed in feelings, not hurting someones feelings, that it has become a detriment to society! The culture also disrespects, actually hates and despises Church teaching which is truth. The culture either has no regard for heaven or hell, does not care or simply does not believe! And we must push back against that. As for me, please hurt my feelings if what you say or do to me will help me get to heaven! Please do it! God nor I want to see even one soul perish to everlasting Hell! No way no how, not on my watch! It’s way too important! Eternally!!!We are obligated to admonish the sinner and instruct the ignorant starting with ourselves!
I am thankful and indebted to my parents for all eternity for 3 reasons:
#1 they are heterosexual and got married
#2 they stay married and didn’t divorce
#3 they chose life
My gratitude to my parents for these 3 decisions should not be offensive to anyone but in our new 2017 society it is and we need to see how everyone feels about it so they can express themselves. I’m so thankful to my parents but it’s not just because they chose life – before they chose life they had to choose each other, in a heterosexual marriage, which then led to my brother and I conception through heterosexual love making which was open to the possibility of conception/transmission of life- and not just fulfilling a sexual desire or urge of instant gratification, which does not bring the ultimate and permanent joy God wants us to experience through patience, prayer and sacrifice.
Here’s how you know you may need to put a question mark next to LGBTQ – if all of us were transgender or homosexual there would be no natural reproduction and the world would have ceased to exist already and will in the future if we continue down this path. This would be the same for animals – we would have to artificially engineer their reproduction, so let’s stick to the natural, please.
Negative population rates across the globe is not good. That is another story but suffice it to say that both global warming and population control are myths. In addition let’s leave things in God’s hands and stop pretending to be or play God.
Lastly, I call out my heterosexual friends, acquaintances and strangers to turn a hedonistic lifestyle over to God. Those who are not living chaste lives and sexual pleasure seekers whether inside or outside the context of marriage.
Repent! Turn around and remain faithful to the Gospel! It’s never ever too late and your very soul depends on it!!!
Here is some food for thought sent to me by a Facebook friend- 1917 was when our Lady and Blessed Mother appeared to the children at Fatima. A coincident? I think not. I call it a Godcident!
I must give credit to Tony McGinley, Peter DeMaio, John Williamson and Theresa Howe Quigley for parts of this article and to my mom and dad, Robert and Elodia DeFeo for choosing life.
I encourage you to do more research into NFP (Natural family planning) and seek out Dr. Monique Ruberu to be your gynecologist.
Look into the links page of this website for more resources that will help educate you on the issues of our day and help you grow in Christ every day.
I give glory to God in everything, especially, protecting all forms of life at every stage, born and unborn and stating that sex is reserved for marriage and marriage is between one man and one woman.
Pornography and masterbation pave the way to hell. Never lose hope though, never give up trying and striving for holiness no matter how often you stumble. Go to confession and then go to mass and Holy Communion and listen to Our Lady of Fatima, pray the Rosary, make reparation for sins, your own, your families and the sins of the world. Meditate on the mysteries of the Rosary and Bible verses and read and use the Catechesim of the Catholic Church.
