A soldier’s grandmother points to Fatima

I read with some trepidation “Nuclear Weapons and Moral Questions: The Path to Zero,” a challenging article by Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien; His connection being his ministry with the U.S. Military, mine having a grandson at
Camp Lejeune, N.C.

The nuclear threat to all of us will not be totally resolved by symposiums of military leaders, but by prayer groups proclaiming the urgency of

the message of Our Lady of Fatima. It mentioned annihilation of nations if the message was not heeded. A strange message by 1917 standards, since nuclear weapons were unknown at the time.

A coming movie, “The 13th Day,” will bring the Fatima message again to the forefront. For updates, go to www.the13thday.com. The Fatima message needs to be promulgated because it is true, the apparition has church approval, it is a peace plan, and it is a message for our time.

The Fatima message is one of hope. Our lady said, “In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph and there will be peace.” Let us pray for this reality to come soon and pray for skeptics that their hearts be open to the message.
