PENANCE ! PENANCE ! PENANCE ! - THE ANGEL WITH A FLAMING SWORD OF THE THIRD SECRET OF FATIMA


"At the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’. 

The Third Secret clearly alludes to the unveiling the Apocalypse, the primary biblical parallel which the angel with the flaming sword alludes to is found in the Book of Genesis, when God places a cherubim with a flaming sword in Eden to guard the way to the Tree of Life:

Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever—” therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life. 
(Gen 3:22-24) 
Why the flames? What does the image mean? What does it imply for the world?
It was a prophecy, believe to be, of nuclear warthat it relates to the other two secrets, which warned of Russia and Communism. I believe that it fits precisely with the rest of the Fatima message. While many think that there had to be something else – that the real third secret must have said something about the end of the world, or the collapse of the Church – I believe that the secret as presented last June is the full one and dramatic enough. 

Why do they say it pertains to nuclear war? 

First of all, the obvious: the vision implies falling fire, which is exactly what would occur during a nuclear holocaust. Lucia mentioned more than one flame – she used the plural – which in my mind conjures the image of a multi-tipped warhead. Without the Rosary and first Saturday devotion – without conversion, said the Virgin of Fatima -- there would be the rise of Russia and the “annihilation” of nations – which may have meant the political absorption of surrounding countries like Ukraine but may also have meant atomic destruction. Fatima was largely a prophecy about the dangers of Communism, and the greatest temporal danger was confrontation between the superpowers. Such a confrontation would indeed have caused (and may still) flames to fall “as though they would set the world on fire.”

Russia is showing signs of returning to its Cold War ways, and there is also China, the “red dragon.” Communism, North Korea is threatening its neighboring South Korea, Japan , Iran threatening the annihilation of Israel and Communisn is alive so is the image of Fatima – an image more than all else of heavenly fire, of purification, an image that pertains both to the past, present, and future -- may well prove to be timeless. 

"Today, the possibility that this world might end reduced to ashes by a sea of fire no longer seems by any means pure fantasy:Man himself, with his inventions, has forged the sword of fire" Cardinal Ratzinger Pope Benedict XVI, The Message of Fatima, p,39
