(LifeSiteNews) — On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a few days before our third March for Life in Osaka, the great news of victory reached Japan from the USA: the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Our hearts were so delighted and encouraged with this joyful, amazing news! Even Japanese secular mass media started to pay favorable attention to the pro-life arguments. Isn’t this miraculous victory one of the victories to come as consequence of the Papal consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? Every U.S. bishop, in fact, participated in the consecration. Inspired by this, many friends in Ireland made the Rally for life on July 2.

United with the Immaculate Heart of Mary and surrounded by millions of pro-lifers around the whole world, we escorted Our Lady of Fatima walking down the main street of Osaka on July 3. This was the third occasion the statue of Our Lady deigned to go visiting “Elizabeth,” mothers and future mothers.

On Monday July 18, the nearest available day to July 13 – the date when the depenalization of abortion was legalized – our March for Life was organized this year in Tokyo.

In the Japanese civil calendar it was the Marine day, a public holiday, and it was also the feast of St. Camillo, who converted from a worldly life and became the founder of a religious congregation to take care of the sick. At the risk of his own life, he tried to help and save lives. We prayed to St. Camillo to raise many young souls to follow his steps: to wake up and defend life.

This year around 130 marchers were the advocates for the innocent lives in the streets of Tokyo.

Statistics show that in 2020 in Japan alone, at least 145,340 babies lost their lives. This means that nearly 400 babies were killed per day.

If we look the statistics, 39, 252,446 babies were killed during the 71 years from 1949 to 2020. During World War II, the Japanese death toll was estimated at 3.1 million (2.3 million military personnel and civilians and 800,000 civilians).

This is 12 times the number of babies killed by abortion than the Japanese deaths in World War II. While walking, we prayed to Our Lady to protect the smallest and weakest whom Our Lord considers as Himself: “Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me.”

Modern abortion is similar to the Aztec practice of human sacrifices because they believed that palpitating hearts were needed to keep this world running as happy place.

However, when Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to St. Juan Diego in Mexico in 1531, her apparition brought the end to this horrible practice. Over the next ten years, she inspired the conversion of some eight million indigenous people to the life of grace through Catholic faith. The Mother of God transformed the culture of death into the culture of life and love.

In 1917, Our Lady of Fatima told us to continue to say five decades of the Rosary every day in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary to obtain the peace of the world and the end of the war. For She alone will be able to help. Only she can obtain the end of the war against innocent. She can bring victory to life. Our Lady of Fatima promised us: “In the end, My Immaculate Heart shall triumph.”

With Our Lady, united in prayer, we walk toward the victory of life. The culture of life is now rising. Let us bring this good news to all.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

St. Camillo, pray for us.
