Raymond would call himself a Fatima Catholic. The core belief of a Fatima Catholic is that God intervened in human history to establish Devotion to the Immaculate Heart.
To establish devotion to My Immaculate Heart.
At the second apparition, Lucy said “I want you to take us to heaven.” The Madonna answered “Yes, I will take Francisco and Jacinta soon, but you must remain on earth for some time. Jesus wishes to use you to make me better known and loved. He wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. To whomever embraces this devotion I promise salvation; These souls shall be dear to God, as flowers placed by me to adorn His throne.”
Reparation for Offenses against the Immaculate Heart
At the third apparition, Lucy was heard to say “She wants people to recite the rosary. People must recite the rosary.” Then the Lady said “Sacrifice yourself for sinners and say often especially when you make some sacrifice: O, my Jesus, this is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in Reparation for Offenses against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
A couple minutes later, the Madonna said “When you see a night illuminated by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign that God gives that he is about to punish the world by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I will come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.”
Gods Plan that Mary be Mediatrix of All Graces.
Frere Michel says that ”since God has decided to manifest more and more His great design of love, which is to grant all graces to men through the mediation of the Immaculate Virgin, it seems that their refusal to submit with docility to what God wills is a fault which most gravely wounds His Heart. And for which He no longer finds in Himself any inclination to pardon them.
There is no crime more unpardonable.
Lucy said “This sins seems unforgivable because for Our Savior, there is no crime more unpardonable than to despise His Most Holy Mother and to outrage Her Immaculate Heart, which is the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit.
Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
Lucy said “This is committing ‘the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which will not be forgiven in this life or the next.’ “
What should we do?
The Fatima Catholic believes that the Madonna has made the following requests:
Say the daily rosary. As a family if possible.
Do the First Saturdays Devotion
Say Often “O, my Jesus, this is for love of You... Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
Sacrifice and Reparation
Do Ones Daily Duty. See the article titled “What should we do.”
There are basically three kinds of Catholics: traditional catholics, vatican II catholics, and Fatima catholics. The New Church has a different set of beliefs. See the articles titled New Religion SSPX, New Religion Malachi Martin and Catechism of Fatima.
In the end, All will be Fatima Catholics
The Fatima Catholic believes that in the near future the world will be shaken by events which the Madonna promised in the third apparition.
There will be war, hunger, persecution, martyrs, and nations annihilated. Lucy said that the Third Secret will be revealed in the midst of a war. Then Russia will be Consecrated. The conversion of Russia will follow. The Holy Father will promote the First Saturday Devotion. There will be a period of peace.
In the end, Her Immaculate Heart will Triumph.
