Are you happy now, Mary?

Mary of Nazareth, the perpetual virgin blessed mother of Jesus the Christ was the biggest anti-Communist of all time. I know this because I attended Our Lady of Fatima school in Bensalem, PA (which apparently closed in 2011) and it was clear to all us children then one of Mary's top priorities was "the consecration of Russia."

Back story: the Fatima that Our Lady was of was in Portugal. Mary made one of her occasional earthly visitations there in 1917, the same year as the Russian Revolution.

That was back in the day when she was into the whole earthly apparition trend. Nowadays she's more likely to make her presence known through crying statuary.

Anyway, she showed three shepherd children visions and told them secrets - I wasn't aware of the whole three secrets of Fatima controversy until I read about it in Wikipedia just now.

But it occurred to me when I heard about the Pussy Riot arrests - this is what Mary wanted - the end of atheistic Communism in Russia. Pussy Riot was arrested for "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred." No more disrespecting Christianity in Russia - just like the good old days of the medieval Catholic Church which Mary is so nostalgic for.

So Pussy Riot is in jail - are you happy now, Mary?
