WORLD APOSTOLATE OF FATIMA
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New Fatima Documentary Reveals World Changing Message
“Fatima” Highlights include:
Michael La Corte, executive director,World Apostolate of Fatima USA, who served as a program consultant for the film, said the documentary’s influence is magnified by its universal appeal to human curiosity.
“The power of this documentary is that it has the courage to explain the messages, secrets, and prophesies not only from a theological perspective but also through the prism of history and science,” he stated. “This has proved not only to further explain and validate the message but also to help those whose faith needs a little push and to effectively communicate the message to more of God’s children.”
For example, Dr. Lloyd Steffen, professor of Religious Studies at Lehigh University, addresses the historical “Fatima context” in the documentary: “We’re talking 1917 when the Fatima appearances occurred,” he said. “We’re talking World War I; we’re talking the year of the Russian Revolution….Existence is difficult, life is very hard … and what breaks into this world but Mary, Mother of God.”
The overarching message of Fatima can be contained in two words, said Msgr. Luciano Guerra, Rector Emeritus of the Shrine in Fatima: “prayer and penance.”
“Fatima” reveals how prayer, especially the Rosary, ended communism in Russia, brought down the Berlin wall without bloodshed, and saved Pope John Paul II’s life. “Fatima” shows that prayer and penance changed the course history and is still essential today.
“The Blessed Mother taught us that the problems we face in the world today are spiritual and the solutions are spiritual,” explained La Corte. “The solution is to use our freewill to bring God back into our lives and our culture, and repair, through prayer and acts of reparation, the damage that results from putting our will above God’s.”
