The first apparition,the appearance of the angel who told the children, Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta
Pray with me."My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you, and I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to your prayers."
The eschatological(end times) dimension of the relationship of Christ and the Church is already fully realized in the union of Jesus and Mary in Heaven.The other messages attest to this union.
"Pray. Pray. the Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs upon you."
The catastrophes and chastisement of Fatima are to be taken seriously but the main message of Fatima is the warning of Hell and the call for REPENTANCE.
The messages of Our Lady of Akita (approved apparition)echo the messages of Fatima.
Like that of Fatima, is a specific warning of worldwide chastisement. The chastisement threatened is truly terrible – far worse than the possibility of annihilation of several nations prophesied at Fatima. Akita is absolutely consistent with prophecies of Scripture. The first message received by Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa on June 6, 1973, was a call for prayer and sacrifice for the glory of the Father and salvation of souls. The second message, August 3, 1973, was for prayer, penance and courageous sacrifices to soften the Father’s anger. The third message on October 13, 1973, the actual anniversary of the final visions and miracle of Fatima is as follows:Source: http://fatima.ageofmary.com/gods-vengeance/akita/ Still, it is the message of hell and the souls that Our Lady Of Fatima said fell 'like leaves' into for sins of the flesh.It is the message all of us need to hear.It is a message for our times.As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day, recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests. The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their Confreres. The Church and altars will be vandalized. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.The demon will rage especially against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will no longer be pardon for them.
Our Lady manifested herself through this statue to Sr. Agnes Sasagawa in Akita Japan. Our Lady revealed to her a very important message concerning a chastisement for all humanity if we refuse to change(repent)
