Fatima end times call cited in Mexico marriage debate

A reference by a Fatima visionary to an end times battle over marriage and the family has been cited as a same-sex marriage debate looms in Mexico.

Desde la Fe, the weekly of the archdiocese of Mexico, wrote of a statement from Sr Lucia dos Santos.

This comes as Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto announced his intention to promote same-sex marriage in the country, the Catholic News Agency reported.

The Mexican paper recalled comments Cardinal Carlo Caffarra made to the Italian press in 2008, three years after the death of Sr Lucia.

Cardinal Caffarra was asked about a prophecy of Sr Lucia that spoke about “the final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan”.

The cardinal said several years previously, he had written to Sr Lucia’s bishop, asking for her prayers.

This came after St John Paul II had commissioned Cardinal Caffarra to plan and establish the Pontifical Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family

The cardinal received an unexpected response, bearing Sr Lucia’s signature.

“In that letter we find written: ‘The final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan will be about marriage and the family’,” the cardinal said.

“Don’t be afraid, she added, because whoever works for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be fought against and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue.

“Then she concluded: ‘nevertheless, Our Lady has already crushed his head’.”

Cardinal Caffarra added that “speaking again with John Paul II, you could feel that the family was the core, since it has to do with the supporting pillar of creation, the truth of the relationship between man and woman, between the generations”.

“If the foundational pillar is damaged, the entire building collapses and we’re seeing this now, because we are right at this point and we know it.”
