“Bishop Ito was certain Akita was an extension of Fatima, and Cardinal Ratzinger (at the time, and later Pope Benedict XVI) personally confirmed to me that these two messages, of Fatima and Akita, are essentially the same.”
I know we all were mindful of the 100th anniversary of the Miracle in Fatima, Portugal, where the sun appeared to fall from the sky while a reported 70,000 people looked on.
Now we’ve entered the 101st year after that amazing, celestial miracle.
So, let’s do a bit of math. Since the statue of the Virgin Mary in Akita cried 101 times, is this year MORE significant than the 100th anniversary of Fatima?
The third and most dramatic message of Our Lady of Akita occurred on October 13, 1973 (the anniversary of the Miracle at Fatima). Now read it again in light of recent developments in the news –
“My dear daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you. You will inform your superior.”
“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests); churches and altars will be sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.
“With courage, speak to your superior. He will know how to encourage each one of you to pray and to accomplish works of reparation.
“It is Bishop Ito, who directs your community.”
Again, the statue in Akita initially cried 101 times and now we are in the 101st anniversary year of the Miracle of the Sun in Fatima, Portugal, which occurred on the 13th of October, 1917. Considering the above prophecy and current headlines regarding failures within the Church hierarchy, one cannot help but see a fulfillment here.
The statue also bled from the heart at one point, according to the above article on same.
The above message is an undeniable link between the two apparitions.
