from Bishop Fellay
about news from Fatima October 7
Menzingen, October 9 2001
according to which Sister Lucy of Fatima has had an apparition
from the Blessed Virgin asking the Carmels to pray especially
the Rosary on the 6th and 7th of October in order to prevent
the blood bath which is preparing recently spread in our centres.
rumour is false and has been denied by the Carmel of Coimbra.
probably founded on:
initiative of the Association of Our Lady of the Rosary
at Fatima which has asked many Episcopal conferences to
make October 7, feast of Our Lady of the Rosary a particular
day of prayer to ask for peace in the world. The communiqué
said that Sister Lucy and the Carmel approved this initiative.
fact that the Carmel of Coimbra prayed 24 hours straight
on October 7th and the Mother Prior said the hour was grave.
misunderstood internal communication to certain Carmels.
added to the tension already felt in the world has produced
the false information.
that the present times can very well be understood in the
light of the message of Fatima and the invitation to have
recourse to the protection of Our Lady and implore Divine
clemency by the Rosary especially during the month of the
Rosary is more than appropriate.
