"Who is She who come forth as the morning dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun?" from the Gradual of the the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe


"We've just killed a billion people..." 
Cardinal Bea on the topic of reading the Third Secret of Fatima

Today an email came across with the following attached and this was the start of this writer's feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe! As the America's have taken her as their patroness and She stands as a Pro-Life Bastion against Abortion, I thought it fitting to start this article with her image!



 For those who have a hard time reading this - Click on the image above!

The words: "We've just killed a billion people..." resounded in my head!  

It made me immediately recall what Fr. Luigi Villa had told Franco Adessa of a future Chastisement that was to befall Mankind as a result of disregarding the words of warning of Our Lady of Fatima!

Franco Adessa told me that Fr. Villa, the fighter against Freemasonry who had worked with three Cardinals in the Vatican, had told Franco Adessa  had told him that one day in the future God would hand Mankind a bill - to pay up- in so many words.  What debt could we possibly owe to God you ask? It is none other than the debt of the millions of babies that have been aborted!!!

Fr. Villa believed that God will extract the same amount of souls from this world that have been murdered by this selfish, demoniacal act of abortion! 

How many souls would that be? When I read the word "billion" I wondered if that was the total?

I began to try to calculate how many abortions have been committed since Our Lady of Fatima's appearance in 1917- a little over 100 yrs ago.  Well, at first, it seemed was fruitless... However, in my search I found some other hard cold facts about abortion that I didn't know. and then I worked backwards.

First the hard, cold facts that I found.

When I typed in these words: "how many babies have been killed by abortion since 1917?" this is exactly what came up and I was shocked:




"Russia will spread her errors around the world..."

 Our Lady of Fatima

There it was: "Abortion in Russia".

There it is written:

"Abortion was illegal in the Russian Empire. The practice is not directly referenced in the Domostroi, though child rearing is a common topic. During Tsar Alexis Romanov's reign the punishment for abortion was death, only later removed by Peter the Great. Abortion continued to be a serious crime until 1917."

 And here:

"In 1920, Russian Soviet Republic became the first country in the world to allow abortion in all circumstances...

The Soviet government was the first government to legalize abortion. In October 1920 the Bolsheviks made abortion legal within the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic with their “Decree on Women’s Healthcare.” After the RSFSR the law was introduced in Ukraine (5 July 1921) and then the remainder of the Soviet Union... 

The Soviet Union became the first country to have abortion available, on request, often for no cost...."

Does any of the above sound familiar to you?   "Women's Healthcare" for instance???


 The Last link on the search page above was titled:

Letters from Women Pleading for Abortion, Sent in 1917, Mirror Emails Sent Today"

 This article gives quotes from supposed down-trodden women oppressed by pregnancy in the Birth Control Review and then states that "Birth Control Review, published between 1917 and 1940, was edited by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. "

These were all very interesting facts that seem to lead one to suspect that the abortion issue had really accelerated and led by the Communist regime in Russia!

And that the "Octopus of Communism" spread its tentacles with its errors around the world very quickly!!!

Again that total of 1 BILLION haunted me...I worked backwards trying to calculate how many babies per year in 100 yrs would it take to get the total of one billion!... I discovered that it would be 10,000,000 babies annually for 100 years to get 1 BILLION- yes 1,000,000,000 babies killed annually by abortion!!!

I wondered if we had reached such a number.???...I tried once more to figure out a way to get my answer of how many abortions had been committed and so I typed in: "how many abortions have been done since 1917 worldwide????"

I found many interesting facts! Once again, amazingly the  Wikipedia link on "Abortion in Russia" came up.

Another link came up as well. One of which was an ongoing calculator of how many abortions were occurring in the world this year! 







Well needless to say, with that ongoing total I was pretty certain we had reached 1 Billion babies aborted in 100 years
and it made my blood run cold !

The thought of these babies all being done away with and the punishment that God will inflict upon Mankind made me numb...

Then, sadly, I found what I had been searching for on the Internet! 

I found it on this website:

Therefore, connecting all this information, it appears that we now owe a debt of over 1 Billion souls to God!

We must be prepared at any time for the collecting of the debt!



We should recall that at the time of Cortez arriving in Mexico, it is widely believed that the Aztecs sacrificed 20,000 people a year to the Gods. 

Abortions were common way of sacrifice.

Cortez brought the Faith to Mexico. In 1421, the sacrificing had stopped, but conversions were not taking place as hoped.

In 1531, Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to Juan Diego and left a gift of her image on his tilma! After that,  the numbers of conversions and baptisms exploded and Mexico was converted!  Our Lady had converted this savage people!

One can imagine how her words were such comfort to the Aztec Indians when she told Juan Diego:

Know for certain, littlest of my sons, that I am the perfect and perpetual Virgin Mary, Mother of the True God through Whom everything lives, the Lord of all things near and far, the Master of heaven and earth.

I wish and intensely desire that in this place my sanctuary be erected. Here I will demonstrate and exhibit and give all my love, my compassion, my help and my protection to the people. I am your merciful Mother. The merciful Mother of all of you who live united in this land, and of all mankind, of all those who love me. Here I will hear their weeping, their sorrow, and will remedy, and alleviate all their multiple sufferings, necessities and misfortunes.    

Listen, put it into your heart, my youngest and dearest son, that the thing that frightens you, the thing that afflicts you, is nothing: do not let it disturb you??Am I not here, I who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am 1 not the source of your joy? Are you not in the hollow of my mantle, in the crossing of my arms? Do you need something more? Let nothing else worry you or disturb you.


Our Lady had taken pity on a barbaric nation and  chose to save it! These fierce people became fierce for God, Our Lady and the Church and their descendants would be the future martyrs of the Catholic Church - the Cristeros being the bravest amongst them!

In the Epistle for this Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe it states:

"I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope.
 In me is all grace of the way and of the truth, in me is all hope of life and of virtue. Come over to me, all ye that desire me, and be filled with my fruits."


We must remember that Our Lady of Fatima told Sister Lucia at Fatima on July 13, 1917:

“God is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the Communions of reparation and for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart ... In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, which will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Despite the grim outlook, this should give us hope. Surely, those who have devotion to Our Lady are under Her beautiful mantle! We are under Her protection!

None of this should upset us or worry us if we have Our Lady as our mother! 

Our Lady of Good Success came to Mother Mariana in Quito, Ecuador in the 1600’s to ask her to be a victim soul for our times because of how many souls would be at risk of being damned!  She asked her to offer herself and then she spoke these of comfort so that we could read them now and obtain comfort:

The small number of souls who, hidden, will preserve the treasure of the Faith and the virtues will suffer an unspeakably cruel and prolonged martyrdom. Many of them will succumb to death from the violence of their sufferings, and those who sacrifice themselves for Church and Country will be counted as martyrs.

“In order to free men from bondage to these heresies, those whom the merciful love of My Most Holy Son will destine for that restoration will need great strength of will, constancy, valor and much confidence in God. To test this faith and confidence of the just, there will be occasions when everything will seem to be lost and paralyzed. This, then, will be the happy beginning of the complete restoration.”

As well, Our Lady of Revelation appeared to a man in 1947 who was going to assassinate Pope Pius XII- apparition and message approved by Pius XII
“The entire Church will undergo a tremendous trial, to clean up the mass of rotten flesh that has infiltrated into Her ministers, in particular among the Orders of poverty: a moral trial, a spiritual trial. For the time indicated in the heavenly books, priests and faithful will be placed at a perilous turning-point in the world of the lost, which will rush to the assault with whichever means: false ideologies and theologies! Supplication from both parts, the faithful and the unfaithful, will be made according to the trials. I, among you the elect, with Christ as Our Captain, will fight for you […] The wrath of Satan is no longer restrained; the Spirit of God is withdrawn from the earth, the Church will be left a widow, behold the funeral drape, She will be left to the mercy of the world. Children, become saints and sanctify yourselves more, always love each other. […] Marshal yourselves under the banner of Christ. Working in this way, you will see the fruits of victory in the awakening of consciences to the good; despite being in evil, you will see, through your cooperative and efficacious help, sinners converted and the Fold filled up with saved souls." (The Virgin of the Revelation to Bruno Cornacchiola, the 12th of April at the TreFontane.)**

Let us pray during this Advent and prepare as St. John the Baptist stated:
I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaias.”

Surely, we can go to Our Mother during these times before the Chastisement to ask Her to help convert all of us. It is my opinion that due to the world situation, we have all become somewhat hard of heart.  We must ask her to change all hearts in the world – starting with ourselves- to realize the sins that are being committed and repent!  This is still the time of mercy for us- but justice cannot be far behind! All the true apparitions of Our Lady have asked us to repent, convert, pray the rosary and do penance!

Our Lady of Fatima,
Our Lady of Lourdes
Our Lady of La Salette,
Our Lady of Guadalupe,
Our Lady of Good Success,
Our Lady of Revelation,
O Mary, conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to thee!
Jesus, be my salvation!

God bless and keep you all this Advent
and a Blessed and Merry Christmas to you!
