REALITY CHECK: Our Agitated World

On May 5, 1917, eight days before Our Lady appeared at Fátima, Pope Benedict XV wrote a moving plea to the Virgin Mary, as the First World War raged (original in Italian HERE). Two particular passages represent the violent state of the world today (from William Thomas Walsh’s book Our Lady of Fátima):

“Even May, the month of Mary, the month of new life and joy, weighed heavily on the world that year. On May 5, as if to voice the universal sadness and to point out the only source of hope, Pope Benedict XV lamented, in a memorable letter, “the cruel war, the suicide of Europe.” After begging God to turn the hearts of rulers toward peace, and urging all to purge themselves of sin and pray for peace, he especially asked that since all graces were dispensed by the hands of the most Holy Virgin, we wish the petitions of her most afflicted children to be directed with lively confidence, more than ever in this awful hour, to the great Mother of God.” He directed that the invocation “Queen of peace, pray for us,” be added to the Litany of Loreto, [and he continued],

To Mary, then, who is the Mother of Mercy and omnipotent by grace, let loving and devout appeal go up from every corner of the earth – from noble temples and tiniest chapels, from royal palaces and mansions of the rich as from the poorest hut – from blood-drenched plains and seas. Let it bear to Her the anguished cry of mothers and wives, the wailing of innocent little ones, the sighs of every generous heart: that Her most tender and benign solicitude may be moved and the peace we ask for be obtained for our agitated world.”


Someone has to say the truth… its time to lift the fog.
