“Our Lady of Fatima and Divine Providence”
A scripture scholar once taught that you will know the underlying reason and goal of all human events, past, present, and future, if you know the first three chapters of Genesis.
Actually you need to know only one verse from those first three chapters, Genesis 3:15, “I will put enmities between thee and the woman, between thy seed and her seed. Thou shall strike at her heel and she shall crush thy head.”
In the Liturgy of the Hours we read that God’s providence is revealed in history. Every age of history has been a living out of this battle between the woman and the serpent, the Christ and the anti-Christ. In this year of 2017 there are many significant anniversaries that show clearly this on-going spiritual battle between good and evil and Divine Providence coming to the aid of mankind.
