THE ABSENT PAPACY AND THE DELUDED APPROVAL OF FATIMA
The Fatima messages speak of a suffering Pope. The reality is there was no Pope since the Papacy was taken from the world with the death (murder) of Pope Pius X. Refer to The Mystery of Iniquity for more details on the absence of the Papacy. With no Papacy the bishops, priests and faithful remaining were in very great peril of apostatizing because only the Pope has been given the grace of Infallibility; the bishops being Infallible when they act in conjunction with the Pope. A proof of this is the “approval” given to the Fatima apparitions in 1930 which reads like this:
October 1930 - Announcement of Dom Jose Alves Correia da Silva, Bishop of the Diocese of Leiria-Fatima on the Results of the Investigative Commission
In virtue of considerations made known, and others which for reason of brevity we omit; humbly invoking the Divine Spirit and placing ourselves under the protection of the most Holy Virgin, and after hearing the opinions of our Rev. Advisors in this diocese, we hereby: –
1. Declare worthy of belief, the visions of the shepherd children in the Cova da Iria, parish of Fatima, in this diocese, from the 13th May to 13th October, 1917.
2. Permit officially the cult of Our Lady of Fatima.
How extremely vague! “In virtue of considerations made known, and others which for reason of brevity we omit” What considerations? How can this be taken seriously? Who is the “Divine Spirit”? Despite the lack of evidence provided in this “official” notice of the “church” the people still believe in it!
There have thus far been ample proofs put forward to show the true source of the apparitions at Fatima was Satan himself. Consider well how this approval by the “Church” is another proof the Papacy had been usurped and the vast majority of the bishops, priests and faithful had already apostatized by 1930. This approval was not coming from the Catholic Church but from the Whore of Babylon who was being vague in its approval because it didn’t want to open too many eyes.
