AMELIA remains a popular name that is equally associated with the Blessed Virgin Mary’s apparition to the three young shepherds of Fatima.

She was a friend to the youngsters but had already died before our Lady’s apparition. Since these youngsters had the privilege of discussing a lot of extraterrestrial issues with the Virgin Mary, they asked her about the condition of their friend, Amelia, in the afterlife. To their greatest SHOCK, our Lady told them that Amelia was in PURGATORY and will remain there UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD. Hmmm! But what offense did she commit to deserve such TORMENT? Our Lady told them that she (Amelia) always dressed INDECENTLY/IMMODESTLY while she was alive and such careless actions earned her such torment. In case you do not know, IMMODESTY in fashion (i.e showing some of your intimate body parts and figures in order to appear SEXY) is capable of leading somebody into the SIN of SEXUAL LUST. Jesus Christ himself said that serious punishments await those who lead others into temptation (cf. Matt 18:6).

Are there still boys, girls, men and women who still dress INDECENTLY today; even inside the places of worship? Do you really think that it doesn’t matter anymore about what you put on? Hmmm! Even when your parents, guardians, spiritual leaders, etc. refuse to call your attention to the danger of such careless actions, please, kindly run for your life! Would you like to end up like Amelia or even worse? Think about it, my dearest friend.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸผThe above notwithstanding, parents, guardians, teachers, spiritual leaders, etc. still have the OBLIGATION of reminding those under them the social and spiritual effects of IMMODESTY in fashion, which is fast enveloping our society today.

Our Lady of Fatima – pray for us๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Remain blessed๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
