Rosary of Reparation in Little Rock, Arkansas

On August 15th, the feast day of Our Lady’s Assumption into heaven, nearly 300 Catholics gathered in front of the Arkansas state capitol to take a stand against the devil and his nefarious works. This large-scale effort was made possible on extremely short notice due to the generous financial support and prayers we received from friends of America Needs Fatima.

Armed with rosaries and holy water, surrounded with signs, banners and bagpipes, and with Our Lady of Fatima as their general, they stood in peaceful protest and reparation against the horrifying event scheduled for the following day. These Catholics were there to ask pardon for the terrible display that would occur the very next day at the same spot. In contrast to the beautiful statue of the Queen of Heaven, the Satanic Temple would be parading a 9-foot tall statue of the demon Baphomet, with a young boy and girl at his side staring up at him, beguiled and fascinated.

Those assembled to offer reparation ranged in age from infant to elderly. Many were local, but others traveled from surrounding states, knowing that what affects one affects us all, and that silence will only allow for the spread of more evil. Buses carrying over eighty people traveled seven hours from Topeka, Kansas. These generous souls came from several parishes in Kansas, and others were from our Kansas calling center, volunteering for America Need’s Fatima’s Public Square rosary campaign. One woman traveled all the way from Australia.

As soon as their signs came out, even before the rosary started, they received many honks of support. Overall, they received a very positive response, other than a few unpleasant passersby and one loud “Hail Satan” from a driver. If he had known how many extra prayers he would get, he probably would have kept silent!

After the Rally, Mr. Jose Walter Ferraz, along with a family from Arkansas, delivered the online petitions gathered in support for the Ten Commandments Monument against the Satanists, with over 25,000 signatures, to Governor Asa Hutchison.

All of us here at America Needs Fatima – and I am sure Americans everywhere – are deeply grateful for those who lent their generous financial support to this effort. We could not have organized such a large-scale event on short notice without their help! May Our Lady bless abundantly all those whose prayers and support made this Rosary of Reparation possible.

 


 

The Satanic Temple and its Scandalous Statue

For the first time in American history, Satanists brazenly paraded their 9-foot-tall, one-ton demon Baphomet statue to the Arkansas State Capitol grounds and unveiled it near the 10 Commandments monument. They also requested a court-ordered placement of the statue right next to the monument.

The Satanic Temple claims its August 16th event was about "religious freedom." In fact, they even called the event: "The Satanic Temple's Rally for the First Amendment." Many of the signs displayed by participants made their intent clear. Some examples were “Support Religious Pluralism” and “Religious Liberty for All.”

Satanism is not a religion. Satanists worship no god, only hating God and His glorious creation. In the days leading up to August 16th, the Satanic Temple led a demonic procession – a type of sinister, multi-state caravan – with its idol of Satan in tow, getting Americans accustomed to the devil. Whether we realize it or not, that is what is at stake here: our Christian identity as a nation.

The media was out in full force to cover this event. Had it not been held in mid-August, the gathering might have been mistaken for a Halloween gala due to the dark and “goth-like” costumes worn by participants. 

According to another press report, the statue was purposely designed to "have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages [especially children it seems] may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation." (NewYorkCBSlocal.com, 1/6/2014)

After showing the vision of Hell to the three children in Fatima on July 13, 1917, Our Lady said, “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.”

As seen in the photos above, Satanists are actively working in America to convince our youth that Satanism is just another option among many. To oppose this, we must do what Our Lady of Fatima requested and propagate devotion to Her Immaculate Heart and devotion to her Holy Rosary. 

 

May Our Lady of Fatima and Saint Michael defend us in battle.

Pope St. Gregory VII

Pope Gregory VII was born Hildebrand in Tuscany, Italy. Little else is known of his early life. Hailed, historically, as one of the greatest of the Church's pontiffs and one of the most remarkable men of all time, his name, Hildebrand, meant “bright flame”. Those who hated him, which were many, interpreted the name as “brand of Hell”.

Hildebrand was a Benedictine monk, for a time living in Cluny, from whence he certainly gleaned the monastery’s ideal of societal reform.

As a cleric, he became chaplain to Pope Gregory VI, and a few years later, under Leo IX was made Cardinal Deacon. A man of outstanding energy and insight, Hildebrand became a power in Rome. It is greatly due to him that the practice of electing popes through a college of cardinals was established.

In 1073 at the death of Alexander II, the people of Rome cried out for the holy genius who had helped steer the Church for twenty years, “Hildebrand for Pope! Holy Peter wants Hildebrand, the Archdeacon!” Once before the holy monk had eluded the tiara but this time a proper college of cardinals, seconding the popular cry, induced him to accept an honor duly his.

Hildebrand assumed the name Gregory VII, and threw his energy and zeal into a continued reform, especially fighting simony (the sale of ecclesiastical posts) and clerical incontinence.

He confronted Emperor Henry IV head- on about his practice of choosing men for ecclesiastical positions. On meeting with dogged resistance, the pontiff finally had recourse to excommunication which drastically curtailed the proud monarch’s power, ultimately bringing Henry on foot to the Pope at the Castle of Canossa. Because of Henry’s rebellious obstinacy, Pope Gregory saw fit to leave him out in the cold for three days before receiving and reinstating the royal penitent.

But Henry failed to make any true personal reform and alienated his princes who elected another ruler. Still, he later rallied and went as far as electing another Pope, a Clement III, calling down upon himself another sentence of excommunication. He also attacked and entered the Eternal City in 1084, which forced Pope Gregory into exile. Henry had his protégée “pope” crown him Emperor. Ultimately repelled by an army fighting for the true pope, the Emperor Henry left Rome, but complications sent Gregory VII again into exile, this time to die.

His last words before his death were a summary of how he had lived, “I have loved justice and hated iniquity, therefore I die in exile.”

Mary and the Simple Country Wife

There was once a young country wife who practiced devotion to Holy Mary, just as her mother had taught her to do. This simple young lady considered herself fortunate to have married a handsome soldier. Little did she know that her soldier-husband had made a deal with the devil, that he would sell his wife for a certain sum of money.

One crisp, autumn morning the couple went out for their customary walk. Oddly, this time the young man insisted on heading towards the forest. It was at the forest where he intended to deliver his young bride over to the devil.

On their way to the forest, the couple passed in front of a Church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The wife, overtaken with a desire to enter the church begged her husband to allow her to pray a Hail Mary in that church.

As the young lady entered the church, Holy Mary came forth from it, taking the form of the wife and accompanied the man into the forest.

When they at last approached the devil at the forest, he said to the man, “Traitor! Why have you brought me instead of your wife, my enemy, the mother of God?”

“And you,” said Mary, addressing the devil, “how have you dared to think of injuring my servant? Go, flee to hell.”

And then, turning to the man, Mary said to him, “Amend your life, and I will aid you.”

She then disappeared and that wretched man repented, amended his life and became a husband worthy of his simple country wife.

From the Glories of Mary, by St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori.
