OREMUS COMMUNICATIONS OCTOBER 2017 NEWSLETTER
Oremus Communications continues to pray for a number of important petitions including the victims of
numerous natural disasters. For example, Hurricane Harvey and its destruction in the Caribbean and in TexasLouisiana
area. Then Hurricane Irma hit many of the same areas as did Hurricane Harvey, especially, Puerto Rico
and Florida with even more destruction then the first Hurricane. The earthquake of Mexico City left great
destruction in Mexico city. We will continue to pray for the victims and their families long after the news media
has left these area because the road to recovery will be long and arduous.
We also continue to honor Our Lady of Fatima on the 100th Anniversary of her 6 visits to the 3 children Lucia,
Jacinto and Francisco. Her final visit was on October 13, 1917 when she appeared to the children for the last time
in what has been called the “MIIRACLE of the SUN”. As before in our recent newsletters, we refer to the book,
“Fatima: The Full Story” by Fr. John De Marchi, I.M.C. and, specifically, pages 134, 135 and 136.
A misty cloud like incense enveloped the little group as the Our Blessed Mother began by saying “I
want a chapel to be built here in my honor. I am the Lady of the Rosary. Continue to say the Rosary every
day. The war will soon end and the soldiers will return to their homes.”
Then Lucia stated “I have many petitions, will you grant them?”
Our Blessed Mother responded “Some, yes; others, no. People must amend their lives and ask
pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more for He is already too much offended.”
“Do you want anything more?”
And the Lady of the Rosary took her last leave of her three little friends. She opened her hands which
were reflecting the solar rays, and while she rose her light was thrown back to the sun so that she was
more brilliant than the sun itself. Lucia fixing her eyes on the radiant vision, cried out to the people:
“There she goes, there she goes! Look at the sun!”
“Look at the sun,” Lucia had cried to the people. What was happening in the miraculous skies of
Fatima during those incredible moments? The answer is a miracle, a stupendous miracle, such as no one
had dared to imagine. The sun began to zigzag all over the sky and cast off radiant colors throughout the
landscape. The children saw a series of tremendous visions: first St. Joseph with the Holy Child and Our
Lady – the Holy Family. St. Joseph, robed in white, seemed to lean from the clouds, half hidden , holding
the Child which was fully visible and dressed in red, upon his arm. Our Lady on the right of the sun wore a
blue mantle which covered her head and fell loosely round her. St. Joseph traced the sign of the Cross
three times over the vast kneeling crowd and then the vision faded to give place to another of Jesus
Christ, vested in red and HIs Mother under her symbolism of Our Lady of Dolours. The Redeemer also
gave HIs blessing to the people. As this vision faded it was succeeded by yet another seen by Lucia alone,
of Our Lady of Mount Carmel with something falling from her hand.
Yes, the miracle had taken place and it was seen not only by the simple and humble but by the whole
multitude (some 70,000 people), believers and non-believers, many of whom have given testimony of this
Our lineup for guest co-host on OCFRP includes the following: Father Leonard Lewandowski pastor of St. Titus
