The Message of October 13th: Random Facts about Fatima and Akita Side-by-Side

What is so special about October 13th that Our Blessed Mother would deliver the same message twice 56 years apart? In 1917, apart from the Miracle of the Sun in Cova di Iria in Fatima, Portugal, the Blessed Mother would deliver the third secret of Fatima. Fifty-six years later, in 1973, Our Lady would deliver another rousing message of warning to Sister Sasagawa in Akita, Japan.

The Atomic Bomb was Dropped Halfway Between the Events

Twenty-eight years after Fatima, the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Twenty-eight years later, Our Lady would come to Akita.

It was a Saturday both times.

October 13th fell on Saturday in 1917 and 1973. So the third secret of Fatima and the prophecy of Akita were each delivered by Our Lady on Saturday, the day the Church devotes to Marian devotion.

Both had Public Miracles along the Message

At Fatima, on October 13th, the Miracle of the Sun happened whereby the general public witnessed the Sun behave in ways impossible.

At Akita, on October 13th, the wooden statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary wept and the public witnessed it.

The Prophetic Message of Akita

At Akita, Our Lady told Sister Sasagawa:

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 prayer of the Rosary. With the Rosary pray for the Pope, bishops and the priests.

The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops.

The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars 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. You have still something to ask? Today is the last time that I will speak to you in living voice. From now on you will obey the one sent to you and your superior…I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach

October 13, 1973 message of Our Lady at Akita

I highlighted the line about “the Church will be full of those who accept compromises” because that is precisely the problem we have. (See Detente with the Devil and Stagnation of the Church for more on this).

It really is the next lines about the devil attacking the souls consecrated to God that draws on the nexus to the third secret released in 2000. We are talking about priests and nuns here.

The Third Secret of Fatima

While there is controversy whether the entire third secret was released, there does seem to be enough there to see the connections between Akita and Fatima. The secret, as released by the Vatican on May 13, 2000, reads:

we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’.

And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it’ a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’.

Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark;

before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way;

having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions.

Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God. 

Message of Fatima delivered October 13, 1917 and as released by the Vatican in 2000

The Arrows of the Wicked

Soldiers shooting bullets and arrows. The psalms speak of arrows and burning:

“And in it he hath prepared the instruments of death, he hath made ready his arrows for them that burn.”

Ps. vii 14

In other places,

“For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow; they have prepared their arrows in the quiver; to shoot in the dark the upright of heart.”

Ps. x 3

The Battle of Fatima Versus the Opposition of Akita

I’m speculating here that the phrase “the devil will enter the Church in such a way that we would see Cardinal against Cardinal…” does not merely mean polite disagreements. Something far stronger is at hand. Combined with the warning of Akita that the devil will force out those consecrated to God and priests serving Our Lady will be scorned by the other priests, we aren’t talking about polite discourse. We are talking about war. War between the two sides — those who follow Christ, and those who follow the devil.

Fatima speaks of soldiers firing bullets and arrows, and the faithful being killed. It speaks of priests and religious on their way to the summit being killed.

It’s not too much of a stretch to see that the fight is the same in each message, is it? Or at least it overlaps substantially.

Who Are the Soldiers within the Church?

Are the soldiers working for the Communists? We know that Bella Dodd testified before Congress that she had placed over 1000 communist agents into seminaries, and that she worked with four communist Cardinals. She was only one agent.

We know that Fr. Ciszek met a seminarian in his time of preparing to go to Russia. The same seminarian left in the first year. He later met that same seminarian in the Gulag. Fr. Ciszek realized that this guy had been sent as an agent and failed, and was then being punished.

We know from St. Maximilian Kolbe and other sources, not the least of which was a book by Bishop Rudolf Graber, Athanasius and the Church of Our Time (1974) that various Grand Lodges of Masonry, including the Grand Orient of France (mentioned in this post when discussing Kerensky) plotted to place masons within the hierarchy by slowly corrupting the priests, who then would corrupt the hierarchy until someday, the masonic-corruption would generate its own corrupt man to be pope and make him Pope.

(side note, it’s obvious that “corruption” likely means sodomy and pedophilia, right? I mean, it’s not like there isn’t such a war in seminaries being reported or anything.)

Whatever the source of the enemy, it is clear that we have many sources of enemies within. The events surrounding the death of Pope John Paul I seem to imply that they are within. David Yallop investigated and in his book In God’s Name (1985), he tells us that it is most likely that Pope John Paul I was poisoned. That means somebody within.

The story that the butler was taking Pope Benedict’s papers (anybody seen the investigation report that was imminent to be acted on?) is foolish. Who was running the butler?

If you think we didn’t get the entire third secret, do you really need the rest of the third secret when Akita tells you what is happening?

Odd Coincidence about Masons, Freemasonry, Demolay, France, and October 13th

Freemasons celebrate Jacques Demolay and extol him, even having young men join Demolay societies. It was Friday October 13th, 1307 when the French king had the Knights Templar rounded up and arrested. Their commander was Jacques Demolay. Among the charges against them were sodomy and pedophilia. There are whole controversies as to whether Masons say Friday the 13th is bad luck because this was the day Demolay and the Knights Templar were rounded up to be tried and killed.

It’s also interesting that the French revolution by which the king was killed and Catholics drug out into streets and killed was allegedly led by the Grand Orient Lodge of Paris, right? There is something of a number of prophecies that France will produce a great king yet, who will rescue Europe and return the continent to the true faith. Something to chew on there.

Some claim that the Templars worshipped Baphomet, an hermaphrodite demon that encourages Sodomy. Odd that we have news stories about Baphomet statues and such running rampant, such as the one placed in Detroit in July 2019, and another in Arkansas just in September 2019.

UPDATE: About that Atomic Bomb Targeting the Church in Nagasaki…

There are documentaries and investigative research showing that Truman and several masonic “cult of death” military members changed the target of the bomb for Nagasaki away from the Mitsubishi shop yards to the Church in Nagasaki: the birthplace of Catholicism in Japan. It was almost as if they sought to erase Catholicism from Japan.

Both Akita and Fatima have Messages on the Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament

The Angel of Portugal visited the three visionary children in Fatima and gave them catechesis on the real presence, and ultimately gave them Holy Communion. Interestingly, that was with intinctured Host, meaning that the Host had been dipped into the Precious Blood. You cannot receive an intinctured Host in the hand. In 1917, there wasn’t Communion in the Hand.

At Akita, Sister Sasagawa was instructed to tell her superior to add the word “truly” before “present” to the convent’s prayers to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Similarly, the wound that appeared on Sister’s hand prevented her from receiving Communion in the hand. The Bishops Conference of Japan had just rolled out Communion in the hand. It was a clear message against Communion in the Hand.

Even though I have brought up the Akita connection to Communion in the hand as the battle line against the “homosexual contagion” and I have mentioned that the angel with the flaming sword in his left hand is an indictment of freemasonic sorcery (as well as the homosexual contagion), it is between both Fatima and Akita that you can see that the Blessed Sacrament is the sign they are trying to ruin.

If the Rosary and the Eucharist are the only two weapons to be left to us, isn’t it plain that they’d be attacked by way of making people lose interest and faith in them?

There are a slew of whole other rabbit holes down which we could go… That Portugal brought the faith to Japan… That Portugal created the Amazon and brought the faith there… that Akita is ignored with a strange resistance the same way people ignore the problem of Communion in the hand…

One thing is clear to me, Akita and Fatima are describing the same problems. The solution isn’t found in synods that extol women priests and paganism. Rather, the solution Our Lady gave us:

  • saying the Rosary daily, or more often;
  • Belief in the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament; and,
  • stopping Communion in the hand.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us! Our Lady of Akita, pray for us!

      Hah! I’m not into the question of whether 13 is a problem on its own — but it does mean something with regard to those historical events and Our Lady’s choice of when to appear to the visionaries!

  • Darren says:

    My family and I are doing a 9 day novena to Pope St. Pius X for his intercession to have the Holy Father and the USCCB re-instate communion on the tongue.

    Pope St. Pius X, pray for us.
