Fatima: The Great Sign Resource #510-445, $8.00

To cite another of the author's many examples: while no nation on earth seems able to stem the global advance of Communism (which our Lady had foretold with unerring accuracy in 1917, together with the reason for it), nevertheless, in those countries where sufficient people resolutely compiled with the Fatima message, the red tide, even at the last moment, was mysteriously halted and routed. Such was the case with Austria (1955), Brazil (1966), Chile and Portugal (1975). And behind the Iron Curtain, the Pilgrim Virgin of Fatima was the direct cause of the first churches to be built in Poland since the end of the second World War. By: Francis Johnston
