Our Lady of Mediatrix of All Grace performed dozens of miracles in the Philippines. One of the most spectacular was In Matalam, North Cotabato, Mindanao. The miracle was witnessed by hundreds of screaming witnesses (see ten second video) during the Concelebrated Mass led by Bishop Colin Bagaforo of Kidapawan on the Centennial Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima. The miracles at Fatima (December 13, 2017) and Matalam (December 13, 2017) happened 100 years apart EXACT TO THE DAY AND THE HOUR, proving that the Mediatrix in the Philippines is a continuation of Fatima in Portugal.

Witnesses to both miracles 100 years apart described the same sun pulsating and changing colors. For Fatima, it was the sixth and last apparition witnessed by 70,000 people.

It took 20-odd years for the Vatican to finally declare the Fatima apparitions as authentic, triggering the most momentous prophecies of the modern era, the voice of the God of Mercy and the God of Wrath that shook the world. The Spanish Civil War and Worlds War I and II were prophesied, and a scary nuclear World War III, if Man does not change his ways. The ongoing ‘apostasy’ or civil war in the Vatican was also predicted.
This is no coincidence. Our Lady is clearly linking the two events, Fatima and Mediatrix, which has vast geopolitical implications. The shift of her focus from the Old World to Asia is manifested by Saint John Paul II, in his Ecclesia in Asia, which cites three historical phases in the Church’s global evangelization – the First Millennium (31 AD or Christ’s death to 1000 AD), the focus on the Old World, the Second Millennium (1001 to 2000 AD) the focus on the New World, and the Third Millennium (2001 to 3000 AD) the focus on Asia.
This continuity from Fatima to Mediatrix is demonstrated in another miracle in the 1950s in Lipa. Anacleta Trivino related that she saw the Mediatrix statue in the Carmelite Convent shedding tears on the day that Fatima visionary Sister Lucia was dying. (Source – ‘The Wonders of Lipa’, by Dr. Francisco Villanueva, Jr.).
Although the Mediatrix devotion had its origins decades ago, in Belgium in the 1930s, and in China in 1946, it was in Lipa where the first miracles occurred – the apparitions to visionary Sister Teresing Castillo, a Carmelite postulant, and the shower of rose petals bearing religious images. Pope Francis, who ate lunch with the children of victims of Yolanda in Tacloban, looks up to the Philippines, the only Christian nation in Asia, to lead the Third Millennium evangelization thrust of the Catholic Church.
After the deadly earthquake in in 2013 which totally destroyed ten ancient churches in Bohol, Pope Francis dispatched a statue of Our Lady of Fatima to the disaster area. The statue later made its way to Tacloban during the tragedy of Yolanda.
Pope Francis believes that Our Lady is the key to peace in Asia. It was not a coincidence that, three months after he dispatched the statue of Our Lady of Fatima to the Korean DMZ, attended by hundreds of Marian devotees, the Presidents of North Korea and South Korea signed a historic peace pact and embraced each other. Everyone viewed the two Koreas as hopelessly irreconcilable.
After St. John Paul II consecrated Russia to Our Lady, a momentary era of world peace emerged with the breakdown of the Russian empire, the end of the Cuban missile crisis, the Berlin Wall and the Cold War. Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev was the first ever Kremlin leader to visit the Vatican. He subsequently instituted Perestroika and Glasnost, political reforms of reconciliation with the West, opening up locked churches of the former Iron Curtain and liberating the oppressed Ukrainian Church. For Pope Francis to consecrate China to Our Lady may bring the same results in Asia. Marian scholars say that, in all this, Our Lady Mediatrix of All Grace plays a crucial geopolitical role towards global peace.
