Vaaiga Faʻavaloaga - Vaega II

 

AS Ua ou sauni e tusi atili e uiga i le vaʻai mamao o le faʻamoemoe ua uma ona teu i luga o loʻu fatu, ou te manaʻo e faʻasoa atu ia te oe ni upu taua tele, e faʻataua ai le pogisa ma le malamalama.

In Vaaiga Faavaloaga (Vaega I), na ou tusia le taua tele mo i tatou e malamalama ai i le ata lautele, o upu faʻavaloʻaga ma ata, e ui lava e i ai se lagona o le latalata mai, o loʻo tele lona faʻauigaga uiga ma masani ona aofia ai taimi uumi o taimi. O le mea mataʻutia o le tatou maua ai io latou lagona o le latalata mai, ma le maua ai se vaaiga… lena finagalo o le Atua o a tatou meaʻai, e tatau ona tatou ole atu na o "a tatou meaʻai i aso uma," ma ua poloai mai Iesu ia aua neʻi avea popole e uiga i a taeao, ae ia muaʻi saili le Malo i le aso.

Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) addresses this in his synthesis of the “Third Secret of Fatima.”

This compression of time and place in a single image is typical of such visions, which for the most part can be deciphered only in retrospect… It is the vision as a whole that matters, and the details must be understood on the basis of the images taken in their entirety. The central element of the image is revealed where it coincides with what is the focal point of Christian “prophecy” itself: the nofoaga autu o is found where the vision becomes a summons and a guide to the will of God. —Katinale Ratzinger, Le Savali a Fatima

O lona uiga, e tatau lava ona tatou toe foʻi e nonofo i le Faamanatuga o le Taimi Nei.

E toatele e lafoaʻi valoʻaga ma le 'alofaga faapea “Ou te le tau iloa. O le a na ona ou ola i loʻu olaga… ”O se mea mataʻutia lena, aua o valoʻaga o se meaalofa a le Agaga Paʻia na fuafuaina e faʻatonu, faʻamalamalamaina, ma fausia le Tino o Keriso (1 Kor 14: 3). Tatou tatau, pei ona fai mai Sagato Paulo, tofotofo agaga uma ma tausi le mea lelei (1 Tes. 5: 19-20). O le isi ogaoga o se tasi o le paʻu atu i mailei o lagona ma se ituaiga o olaga i se isi mea moni, e masani ona faʻailogaina e le fefe ma le le mapu. E le o se fua foi lea o le Agaga o Iesu, o le Alofa, ma na te faʻateʻaina uma le fefe. 

God wants us to know something of tomorrow so we can better live today. Thus, the elements of both darkness and light which comprise the writings of this website are two sides of the one coin of Truth. And the truth pea lava tuʻu saoloto tatou, e ui lava e faigata i nisi taimi ona faʻalogo.

God wants us to know something of the future. But more than anything, He wants us to trust Him.

E mafai lava ona tatou iloaina se mea o le fuafuaga a le Atua. O lenei malamalama e sili atu nai lo loʻu lava iʻuga ma loʻu lava ala. I lona malamalama e mafai ai ona tatou toe vaʻavaʻai i tua i le talafaʻasolopito atoa ma vaʻaia o lenei e le o se mea e tupu fua ae o se auala e tau atu i se sini faʻapitoa. E mafai ona tatou iloa se faʻamatalaga i totonu, o le faʻamatalaga a le Atua, i totonu o mea e tutupu faafuaseʻi. Tusa lava pe le mafai ai ona tatou vavalo mea o le a tutupu i lenei poʻo lena taimi, e tusa lava pe tatou te ono atinaʻeina se lagona mautinoa mo mea mataʻutia o loʻo iai i nisi mea-ma mo faʻamoemoe o loʻo i isi. O se lagona o le lumanaʻi e atiaʻe, i le mea lea ou te vaʻaia ai le mea e faʻaleagaina ai le lumanaʻi-aua e feteʻenaʻi ma le manatu i totonu o le auala-ma o le a, i le isi itu, e alu i luma-aua e tatalaina faitotoʻa lelei ma e tutusa ma totonu mamanu o le atoa.

Ile tulaga e mafai ai ona atiaʻe le agavaʻa e faʻamautinoa ai le lumanaʻi. E tutusa lava ma perofeta. E le tatau ona malamalama i latou o ni tagata vaʻai, ae o ni leo e malamalama i le taimi mai le silafaga a le Atua ma o lea e mafai ai ona lapataʻia i tatou mai le mea e faʻaleagaina - ma i le isi itu, faasino mai ia i tatou le auala saʻo agai i luma. —Cardinal Ratzinger, (POPE BENEDICT XVI), Faʻatalanoaga ma Peter Seewald i Le Atua ma le Lalolagi, pp. 61-62
