the Tuy revelations, June 13, 1929. (Our Lord is still waiting for compliance with His requests.)
Sr. Lucia speaking: “I had requested and obtained permission from my superiors and confessor to make the Holy Hour from 11:00 p.m. until midnight from Thursday to Friday. Being alone one night, I knelt down before the communion rail in the middle of the chapel to say the prayers of the Angel, lying prostrate. Feeling tired, I got up and knelt and continued to say them with my arms in the form of a cross. The only light came from the sanctuary lamp.
“Suddenly a supernatural light illuminated the whole chapel and on the altar appeared a cross of light which reached to the ceiling. In a brighter part could be seen, on the upper part of the cross, the face of a man and His body to the waist; On His breast was an equally luminous dove. And nailed to the cross, the body of another man. A little below the waist, suspended in midair, was to be seen a Chalice and a large Host onto which fell some drops of Blood from the face of the Crucified and from a wound in His breast. These drops ran down over the Host and fell into the Chalice.
“Under the right arm of the cross was Our Lady with Her Immaculate Heart in Her hand … (It was Our Lady of Fatima with Her Immaculate Heart … in Her left hand … without a sword or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames …)
“Under the left arm (of the cross), some big letters as it were of crystal clear water running down over the Altar, formed these words: ‘Grace and Mercy’. I understood that it was the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity that was shown to me, and I received lights about this mystery which I am not permitted to reveal.
“Then Our Lady said to me:
“‘The moment has come when God asks the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means. So numerous are the souls which the justice of God condemns for the sins committed against Me, that I come to ask you for reparation. Sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.’
“Later on, by means of an interior communication, Our Lord said to me, complaining:
“‘They did not want to heed My request! … Like the King of France they will repent and do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread its errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecution against the Church: the Holy Father will have much to suffer.”‘
Suggested resolution for today: I will offer up all of my activities today, done in a spirit of sacrifice, in reparation for offenses committed against the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and for the fulfillment of our Lord’s desires that Russia be consecrated as He wants.
