Wed Dec 30, 2015 www.lifesitenews.com...
Editor’s note: The following is an interview published in the October issue of Faithful Insight magazine, LifeSite’s new full color, glossy magazine for Catholic readers. Fr. Amorth, 90, the chief exorcist of Rome, author of An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories, and the person who founded and led the International Association of Exorcists, has performed hundreds of exorcisms in his over 30 years in that capacity. Fr. Amorth here addresses the Synod on the Family among other issues.
December 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - It is only a year and a half to the anniversary of the first hundred years of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima. Our Lady here made explicit reference to the evils that would come from Russia, were it not to be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart. Since then, maybe with some delay, various consecrations have been actually carried out - of Russia and the world - several times and by different Popes. Solemn among them, that of 25 March 1984, led by John Paul II, with all the world’s bishops.
But Father Gabriele Amorth, 90, known as the dean of the exorcists, as well as a prolific author, does not believe that what was requested by the Blessed Virgin has, in fact, been fulfilled. ...
Fr. Amorth: "It is hard to give details of what you do not live. I'm not a prophet. ...
LifeSite: There are rumors that you had recently indicated a period of eight months, maybe less ... But, as I understand it, there is not a precise time…
Fr. Amorth: "I think it is early. I think we are close. More and more so. The Lord will make Himself heard, and the world will respond. I look at all this with optimism, because God always acts for us to obtain a greater good than the punishments inflicted, which are meant to open the eyes of humanity, which has forgotten and abandoned him.
The Three Secrets of Fátima consist of a series of apocalyptic visions and prophecies which by some are believed to have been given to three young Portuguese shepherds, Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto, by an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary, starting on 13 May 1917. The three children claimed they were visited by a Marian apparition six times between May and October 1917. The apparition is now popularly known as Our Lady of Fátima.
