Cardinal Ricardo J. Vidal, Archbishop Emeritus of Cebum, has written to the Philippine Bishops that on October 17, 1949, ‘ Mary Mediatrix of All Grace’ during an apparition to Teresita Castillo, warned that “China’s dream, is to invade the Philippines.”
What Our Lady prophecied in 1949, in an apparition loaded with miracles, cures and conversions … is literally coming true.
China’s Island Building is at its highest rate of activity on the Paracel and Spratly Island chains. Beijing has reclaimed more than 2000 acres since December 2013, more land than all other claimants combined in the past forty years, according to a US. Defense Department report.
Satellite imagery has shown unprecedented activity from China on Subi Reef and Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratlys, including the possible construction of helipads, airstrips, piers radar, and surveillance structures.
An artificial island, built on a reef, arm,ed by Chinese Communists could become a reality off the coast of the Philippines.
In addition to China, the Spratlys are claimed by Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Taiwan.
Experts say that China’s artificial island building and infrastructure construction are increasing its potential power projection capabilities in the region.
Cardinal Vidal continues on in his letter to the Philippine Bishops about the prophecy of Mary, who is the Queen of Prophets: “This part of the message of Lipa gives us a reason to put ourselves under the title of Mediatrix of All Grace and have recourse to Her in order to avert the buildup of tension and to check the territorial ambitions of this Asian superpower. It is by following this path of prayer and penance sounded out in Fatima and reiterated at Lipa that our beloved Philippines will be spared the scourge of war and the domination of a Communist giant.”
The Philippines cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, equal or overtake China in economic growth or prevail in a military confrontation.
China can bring to bear … its’ huge financial and material and human resources … as well as its advanced military capability in any struggle with a smaller and poorer country like the Philippines with its ill equipped armed forces.
The first and only line of defense the Philippines has is the mantle of protection provided by the Blessed Virgin Mary.”
