A Book on Apparitions of the Virgin Mary

World Wars I and II

Key Dates And Their Relation To Messages and Warnings From Heaven


It is our intent through this document to match the warnings which the world has been receiving from Heaven, primarily through Roman Catholic Church-endorsed Apparitions of the Virgin Mary, with the actual events occurring in and affecting the physical world.

The skeptics are invited to consider the information in here presented while at the same time keeping in mind the high-tech background and objective mentality of the author (1) behind these words.

The following tabulation does not include all the significant dates associated with World War I and World War II and which are symbolically related to the Catholic Church Liturgical Calendar. Only those dates that may be related to the Messages and Warnings delivered from Heaven have been included.

As you ponder on the following Providential coincidences, please keep in mind that:

A. The Virgin Mary Appeared in Fatima, Portugal, starting in May of 1917, at the height of World War I. Reliable records of the time show that God promised through Her to end the war if certain conditions were met. These conditions were met and the war ended, not by the hand of man, but by the very obvious hand of God: A worldwide influenza epidemic, with a casualty level in excess of 20 million victims, broke down the war machinery.

B. World War II was accurately prophesied (2) by Her during these same Apparitions.

Note: In the following chronology, the abbreviation PS stands for "Possible Significance"

In conclusion...

Through the matching of the dates in the previous pages, the reader will notice the frequency with which the date July 16th, the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, was used by God to get our attention. One of the most dramatic events to take place on a July 16th was the first test of the Atomic Bomb. (July 16th, 1940)

As the United States continues its confrontation with the whole Arab World, a confrontation which started with the invasion of Iraq and which may eventually lead to the final Nuclear Holocaust, we would like to point out other Iraq-related events which providentially also took place on a July 16th.

* Iraq's National Holiday - Anniversary of the Revolution - July 17th (1968)
* Iraq's Constitution became effective on July 16th (1970)
* Saddam Hussein assumed the Presidency of Iraq on July 16th (1979)

Is God, through Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, trying to give us a warning before we embark on a trip with no return?

As the war with Iraq loomed in the horizon we should have asked ourselves:

Is God speaking to us again through the "sign posts" dates set by the Security Council in the newly adopted Iraqi Resolution?

Let us review the dates chosen by the Security Council in relation to the impending attack to Iraq:

By August 15th: Iraq must have explicitly accepted the Resolution.

August 15, 1992, was a "trigger date" for the Sequence of Events. No one, with the exception of his Spiritual Director, was aware of this date except miguel de Portugal. As he has stated before, his function is not to announce dates, thus this "trigger date" was never publicized.

One day, if it pleases the Lord, miguel de Portugal will reveal what took place to cause its delay. It is known worldwide, but not recognized - nor even remotely associated with such Grace.

By December 8th: Iraq must have submitted a dossier to the weapons inspectors giving a comprehensive account of the state of its weapons program.

For the Roman Catholics: December the 8th is a most important Feast honoring the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. [Please also note the importance of this date throughout the events of World Wars I and II listed in the main body of this Appendix.]

For the Jews: That year, December 8th marked the end of Chanukah - the Festival of Lights.

By December 23rd: Inspections must start in Iraq.

One day before the Holiest Night for Christendom.

By February 21st: Inspector must report their findings to the Security Council.

On the next day, February 22nd, the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of the Chair of Peter; this Feast commemorates St. Peter's Pontifical Authority.

Perhaps we should have pondered about the Iraq date-related coincidences in the light provided by the many coincidences associated with key dates of World Wars I and II and the Roman Catholic Liturgical Calendar as we acknowledge the massive failure of the Bush Administration in Iraq - and the whole Middle East.

Please, do not fail to recognize the signs of the fig tree [Luke 21: 29-32] and wait to the last minute to "buy oil for your lamps" [Matthew 25: 1-13] for there will be no oil to buy.
