Fatima 100th Anniversary
Our Lady of Fatima told the three children, “More souls go to hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.”
Cordileone blasted the “barbarity” of the past 100 years on October 7, saying that abortion and homosexuality are a “living reflection of hell.”
“Our own land has been soiled by the blood of innocent children in what has become a deadly epidemic tantamount to a genocide on life in the womb; and now we are increasingly witnessing the abandonment of our suffering brothers and sisters at the other end of life’s journey,” he continued.
“God is roundly mocked in our very streets, and it is met with approval and applause in our community – and yet, we remain silent,” he lamented.
“The century since the Fatima apparitions now ending has mocked God, but God will not be mocked: not because He delights in wreaking vengeance on us but because turning our backs on God only bounces back to us, leading to our own self-destruction,” Cordileone warned.

The Blessed Virgin Mary can help bring people to Jesus, Cordileone said. “In her maternal presence, Mary is there to advocate for us.”
“We might not have the power to change world history, but we can change what happens in our own families and communities if we heed the message” Our Lady gave at Fatima, he said. “This next century can be radically different from the last one, but only if we heed the message and respond to the requests.”
