The Other "Secret" From Fátima

A Brief Document Dedicated to Ann and Harold

NOTE: (Added on August 8th, 2021) We have enriched with comments this document, but at another place, keeping this copy as an historic reference and so that old links to the document continue to work.


God sends the heaviest crosses to those He calls His own,

And the bitterest drops of the chalice are reserved for His friends alone.

But the blood red drops are precious, and the crosses are all gain,

For Joy is bought with Sacrifice, and the price of love is Pain.

A Pearl of Divine Wisdom

As part of the communications associated with Our Lady of the Rosary of Fátima the faithful were informed not to seek additional mortification to offer to God, but to offer/accept any and all difficulties that we encounter in our daily lives for:

Love of Jesus, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.

Why was this simple instruction which may appear as "just another exercise of piety", as many would say, important enough for the Mother of God to personally deliver it to mankind?

God did not want that mankind's ever increasing suffering be wasted since, if properly offered, it would become an auto corrective mechanism for mankind's ills.

How Does It Work?

1. If the suffering is needed by God for the redemption of our brothers and sisters, He will give us the strength to endure it as we, though His Grace, help the disoriented Elect find their way to Heaven.

2. If the suffering is just out of the meanness of satan, he will soon stop the harassment. He is not about to contribute to the redemption of mankind as his victim turns the suffering into an act of Love for God and humanity.
