______________________________________ STATUE OF FATIMA STRANDED BY HAIYAN By Bernie Lopez email@example.com
Lord, we feel Your gentleness in the flowers and the wind but we feel Your rage in the storms and earthquakes You give and You take away we bow in awe at Your feet in surrender to Your will forgive us our sins blessed by Your name forever
A day before the millennium storm Haiyan (local name Yolanda) hit Samar and Leyte provinces, the original statue of Our Lady of Fatima, was last known to be in the town of Dolores, Eastern Samar, before communications were cut off. It is believed it was stranded there on its way to the capital of Borongan. Dolor is the Latin word for ‘sorrow’. Is this a new omen from Our Lady of Sorrows? (Source http://www.rappler.com/nation/43269-yolanda-traps-lady-fatima-eastern-samar.)
Pope Francis received the statue from the church in Fatima during the Bohol-Cebu earthquake. He dispatched it to the Philippines. It arrived on September 16. In the crown of the statue is the bullet in a failed assassination of Pope John Paul II, the so-called ‘Fatima Pope’. The Third Secret of Fatima predicted the assassination attempt, and its failure was attributed to ‘Marian intervention’ on the Pope who consecrated Russia to her Immaculate Heart, which, in turn, as Our Lady of Fatima promised, ushered in global peace, triggering the Russian peace initiative détente, the end of the cold war at the break-up of the USSR, and the tearing down of the Berlin Wall. The message of Our Lady of Fatima is both global peace and global disaster.
Fr. Kevin Apurillo, parish priest of San Joaquin, Palo, Leyte, gathered people into his church. Although the water was high, he said, “It’s a mystery how we lived through the storm.” This is akin to a small Jesuit community 100 meters from ground zero in the Hiroshima atomic blast who were left unscathed while they were praying the rosary. Fr. Kevin says victims must cling to God, as also articulated by the Book of Jeremiah below.
if at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted torn down and destroyed and if that nation I warned repents of its evil then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned and if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it this is what the Lord says – look! I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you so turn from your evil ways, each one of you and reform your ways and your actions Jeremiah 18:7-11

As of this writing, 5,200 are dead and 13 million homeless, and still climbing. There are 1,100 evacuation centers full to the brim, and another 685,000 persons who receive assistance outside the centers. (NDRRMC data).
_______________________________ COASTAL BAN INAPPROPRIATE
In a knee-jerk plan, President Aquino wants to impose a no-build zone, banning homes in coastal areas, increasing easement from 20 meters to 50 to 200. This is an un-implementable plan. The Philippines has 36,300 kilometers of shoreline, greater than that of continental USA. In the Visayas, which is more archipelagic than Mindanao or Luzon, the estimate is half or 18,000 kilometers. Shorelines affected by Haiyan is estimated at about 3 to 4,000 kilometers. No one can police this vast area. As soon as people are forced out, a new set will come in. The plan will also reduce the fish productivity of the Visayas, which constitute 60% of total nationwide. We are an archipelagic people since prehistory. Either coastal people die from storm surge or from hunger. They will forever be nourished or killed by the sea. firstname.lastname@example.org many will be purified made spotless and refined but the wicked will continue to be wicked none of the wicked will understand but those who are wise will understand. Daniel 12:10
and the Lord said to Jonah – my son, you must understand that when sinners repent My wrath is quenched instantly prophecies of punishment can be reverted when there is a change of heart My mercy abounds and overwhelms My anger instant repentance obliterates a mountain of sins the slightest move of sinners towards Me easily appeases Me My mercy flows from one mere whispered prayer eastwind at that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise there will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then but at that time your people everyone whose name is found written in the book, will be delivered multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life others to shame and everlasting contempt Daniel 12:1-2
