A GREAT DAY IT WAS, THAT JUNE OF 1978. THE STRIPPER FOR
GOD WAS IN WASHINGTON. SHE WAS GOING TO PREACH IN FRONT
OF THE WHITE HOUSE. IT WAS ARRANGED BY A WOMAN NAMED BETTY
JANE, WHO HAD SEEN KELLIE EVERTS ON WASHINGTON TV. SHE
LEFT HER NUMBER FOR KELLIE TO CALL. KELLIE HESITATED TO
CALL BACK AND LIED DOWN FOR A NAP. BUT AS SHE LAY RESTING
A WORD FROM GOD CAME TO HER, 'YOU CALL THIS WOMAN'. ON
THE OTHER LINE SHE HEARD A VOICE SAYING, 'KELLIE EVERTS,
YOU ARE A SAINT, AND I AM YOUR DISCIPLE..... YOU ARE GOING
TO COME HERE AND PREACH IN FRONT OF THE WHITE HOUSE.'
YEARS LATER IT WAS HAPPENING. BETTY JANE GOT THE PERMIT
AND SENT OUT THE PRESS RELEASES TO ALL IN WASHINGTON,
INCLUDING THE RUSSIAN EMBASSY, WHO SAID, 'WE WILL TAKE
IT UNDER CONSIDERATION.'
permit was applied for by Betty Jane Allsup before
Kellie arrived....This event, even on the day it
happened, revealed itself to Kellie and Betty Jane
as a supernatural occurrence of monumental proportions.
Kellie has always known that her career as "Stripper
for God" found its highest point on this day.
DID NOT RECALL MUCH ABOUT THE MESSAGE OF FATIMA. SHE HAD
TO BONE UP. RIGHT NOW 'SALT TALKS' WERE GOING UNDER WAY,
AND THE COLD WAR WAS VERY COLD. PRESIDENT CARTER WAS AWAY
FROM THE WHITE HOUSE CONDUCTING SOME OF THESE CONFERENCES.
EVERTS CAME TO DANCE AT A LOCAL THEATER AS WELL AS PREACH.
SHE WAS AMAZED WHEN SO MANY IMPORTANT REPORTERS SHOWED
UP TO INTERVIEW HER. SHE HADN'T EVEN DONE ANYTHING YET.
SHE AND BETTY JANE CONDUCTED THEMSELVES AS IF THEY WERE
IN A CONVENT, WITH KELLIE AS MOTHER SUPERIOR AND BETTY
JANE AS A NUN. (BETTY JANE HAD ACTUALLY BEEN A NUN, BUT
RAN AWAY WHEN THE DEVIL APPEARED AND SAID HE WOULD KILL
HER IF SHE REMAINED. BETTY JANE, TERRIFIED, CLIMBED OUT
THE WINDOW AND RAN. SHE EVENTUALLY ENDED UP IN A CLUB,
AS THAT WAS THE ONLY PLACE SHE COULD GET A JOB. SHE WAS
ALWAYS DEVOTED TO OUR BLESSED MOTHER, AND THAT BROUGHT
HER AND KELLIE TOGETHER.)
born-again President, Jimmy Carter, was in office
at the time of the Fatima speech. He was holding
the SALT (Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty) talks
at this time.
JANE WAS INTENT ON KELLIE PREACHING FATIMA, AND SO IT
WAS. KELLIE DIDN'T HAVE THE SLIGHTEST IDEA OF THE REACTION
THIS WOULD BRING FROM THE PRESS. IN FACT, SHE SAID TO
BETTY JANE BEFORE THEY WENT TO LAFAYETTE PARK,
BE DISSAPOINTED IF NO ONE COMES. PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO
HEAR SERMONS. WE GOT A LOT OF PUBLICITY ALREADY, AND IF
FIFTEEN PEOPLE SHOW UP, IT'LL BE ALRIGHT.'
WASHINGTON POST - THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS PAPER IN TOWN -
HAD DONE A FRONT-PAGE STORY. THE UPI AND ASSOCIATED PRESS
HAD COVERED IT. SHE WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS ALREADY. SHE
DIDN'T THINK MORE COULD HAPPEN.

DAY OF THE SPEECH. IS KELLIE NERVOUS? YES, BUT SHE IS
TRYING TO CONTROL HER EMOTIONS. THEY GO OUT THERE AND
PUT UP POSTERS ABOUT THE MESSAGE,

DOWN IN THE MESSAGE OUR HOLY MOTHER INSTRUCTS THE CHILDREN
TO TELL THE POPE THAT HE MUST, IN CONCERT WITH ALL THE
BISHOPS, CONSECRATE RUSSIA TO HER IMMACULATE HEART. THIS
MESSAGE, GIVEN IN 1917, WILL BE FULFILLED BY POPE JOHN-PAUL

HAVE SET THE STAGE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PARK AND KNEEL
DOWN TO RECITE THE ROSARY. IT IS 15 MINUTES BEFORE 12PM,
AND THEY DON'T ANTICIPATE MUCH. BUT THEN, WITHIN FIVE
MINUTES, MEN COME FROM ALL DIRECTIONS, AND THE PRESS IS
THERE. IT'S A GOOD CROWD. ALL THE PRESS THAT ALREADY COVERED
THEM HAS RETURNED. KELLIE FACES THEM. THE SPEECH BEGINS.
YOU CAN HEAR A PIN DROP. KELLIE FEELS NOTHING EXCEPT HER
WORDS, WHICH SEEM TO BE COMING OUT OF HER FLAWLESSLY.
IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG AND THE PRESS INTERVIEWS HER AGAIN
FOR THE NIGHTLY NEWS.
IN THE THEATER, THEY WATCH THE NEWS. IT SHOWS ALL KINDS
OF MISSIONARIES ON THE STREET, BUT NOBODY IS PAYING ATTENTION.
THEN THEY PAN TO KELLIE WITH THE CROWD, AND GIVE HER MESSAGE.
DAY, ASSOCIATED PRESS HAS SENT THE STORY TO FRONT PAGES
ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES. THEY GET CALLED, AT THE THEATER,
BY TWENTY SEVEN RADIO STATIONS.
SUPERNATURAL HAS HAPPENED. NEITHER ONE EXPECTED IT, ANTICIPATED
IT OR UNDERSTOOD IT. WHEN THE SPEECH WAS DONE THEY WERE
WAITING FOR A BUS TO GO BACK TO THE THEATER. NEITHER ONE
COULD FEEL THE GROUND UNDER HER FEET AND FELT A SPIRITUAL
ECSTASY. THEY HELD HANDS AND JUMPED UP AND DOWN, SAYING
DIE TOMMOROW, I HAVE DONE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN
IS HERE! GOD IS HERE!'
PSYCHIC LATER TOLD KELLIE THAT 1,OOO ANGELS WERE PRESENT
AT THE SPEECH. GOD'S POWER WAS UNLEASHED.
GOD'S PLAN IN THIS? WHY WAS GOD USING THIS STRIPPER FOR
GOD AND HER FRIEND, THESE OUTCASTS OF SOCIETY, TO DO SOMETHING
SO MAJOR? BECAUSE GOD USES THE WEAK TO MOVE THE STRONG.
GOD USES CHILDREN TO TEACH WISDOM TO GROWNUPS. GOD USES
THE LITTLE, AS GOD USED THE POOR, THE WEAK, THE LOWLY
TO CARRY MOST OF THE MESSAGES OF OUR HOLY MOTHER. KELLIE
WAS AWARE OF THIS AND WORE A WHITE PEASANT DRESS.
OF THE SOVIET UNION DID NOT HAPPEN BY ACCIDENT, NOR WAS
IT A WILLY NILLY OR HELTER SKELTER OCCURENCE. IT FOLLOWED
THE TIME TABLE OF GOD, EXACTLY AS OUTLINED AND DIRECTED
BY OUR LADY OF FATIMA.
BEGAN TO PRAY. THE MESSAGE WENT TO MILLIONS AND CHURCHES
DID BEGIN RECITATION OF THE ROSARY. THERE WERE THREE MEN
THAT GOD HAD TO PUT INTO OFFICE. ONE WAS PRESIDENT REAGAN.
NEXT WAS THE POLISH/LITHUANIAN POPE FROM BEHIND THE IRON
CURTAIN. (A TRULY REMARKABLE OCCURENCE. THE FIRST TIME
A NON-ITALIAN WAS ELECTED TO THE SEAT, AND EVEN A MAN
FROM BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN! WONDER OF WONDERS!) THE
THIRD MEANINGFUL PERSON TO RISE TO POWER AND BRING GLASNOST
WAS MIKHAIL GORBACHEV.
EVERTS WAS THE ONLY PERSON TO WHOM IT WAS SHOWN BY GOD
- TO WHOM VISION WAS GIVEN - OF HOW THIS ALL CAME ABOUT.
SHE HERSELF DID NOT REALIZE IT UNTIL GOD BEGAN SPEAKING
TO HER. GOD KEPT REMINDING HER OF THAT SPEECH AND THE
WORDS OF FATIMA, AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THE POPE, AND HOW
IT ALL TIED TOGETHER.
PUBLIC DID UNDERSTAND THAT THESE MEN WERE RESPONSIBLE
- BUT THEY DID NOT CONNECT IT TO THE SPEECH IN WASHINGTON,
JUNE 16, 1978. SOME SAID IT WAS REAGAN WHO DID IT WITH
HIS TOUGH POLICY OF STAR WARS. OTHERS SAID IT WAS OUR
HOLY FATHER, THE POPE, BECAUSE HE WAS A GREAT FIGHTER
AGAINST COMMUNISM AND HE FACED THEM DOWN. CERTAINLY MANY
PEOPLE CREDITED THE GREAT GORBACHEV WITH HIS POLICIES
FOR MAKING THE WALLS AND CURTAINS COME DOWN - BUT ONLY
KELLIE EVERTS UNDERSTOOD THE LADY OF FATIMA AND HER POWER,
AND THE WAY SHE HAD WORKED.
THE SPEECH HOLY MARY APPEARED TO KELLIE, SHOWED HER A
VISION OF HER IMMACULATE HEART AND THE SACRED HEART OF
JESUS BEING ONE, AND SAID TO KELLIE,
YOU TO SHOW MY IMMACULATE HEART TO THE WHOLE WORLD.'
II WAS THE FIRST LINCHPIN IN THE PLAN OF FATIMA. AFTER
THE CONTROVERSIAL ELECTION AND DEATH OF ONE POPE, HE WAS
ELECTED OCTOBER 17, 1978, JUST FOUR MONTHS AFTER THE FATIMA
REAGAN WAS ELECTED LATE 1980 TO START HIS PRESIDENCY IN
GORBACHEV BECAME CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY MARCH
IMMEDIATELY SET TO WORK BY TRYING TO KILL TWO OF THE KEY
MEN. PRESIDENT REAGAN WAS SHOT BY A MADMAN ON MARCH 30,
1981. OUR HOLY FATHER WAS SHOT MAY 13, 1981.
TO KELLIE EVERTS, IS THE MOST REMARKABLE FACT. AS SOON
AS JOHN-PAUL II WOKE UP IN THE HOSPITAL, HE ASKED HIS
AIDES TO BRING HIM THE MESSAGE OF FATIMA. TO HER THIS
MEANT THAT SOMETHING CLICKED IN HIM TO GET HIM TO SEE
THAT HE WAS THE POPE OF FATIMA - THE POPE THAT HAD TO
DO THE CONSECRATION. HE STUDIED THE GUIDELINES AND DECIDED
HE WOULD PROCEDE ON THE CONSECRATION SOON. FIRST HE TOLD
THEM TO TAKE THE BULLET FROM HIS BODY AND PUT IT INTO
THE CROWN OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA. THE CONSECRATION ITSELF
WAS NOT IMMEDIATE. THEY TRIED IT FIRST, BUT IT WAS UNACCEPTABLE
(ACCORDING TO LUCIA, WHO IS STILL LIVING IN A CONVENT
IN PORTUGAL) AND THE SATISFACTORY CONCECRATION TOOK PLACE
IN 1984. (THIS ACT MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE CATALYST FOR GORBACHEV'S
ELECTION A YEAR LATER.)
THIS: BEFORE THE ENDING OF COMMUNISM THE WHOLE WORLD LIVED
IN FEAR OF A THIRD WORLD WAR STARTED BY RUSSIA AND THE
UNITED STATES. ALL KINDS OF MISSILES WERE POINTED ALL
OVER EUROPE. THERE WAS A HUGE ANTI-WAR ACTIVIST MOVEMENT
WHICH DISMANTLED AS SOON AS THE IRON CURTAIN CAME DOWN.
BEGINNING OF THE END FOR COMMUNISM WAS THE BERLIN WALL
WHICH STARTED MID-JUNE, 1990 AND WAS DOWN BY NOVEMBER.
THE REST OF THE BARRIERS FELL DOWN WITHIN A YEAR, AND
LITHUANIA, THE COUNTRY OF KELLIE EVERTS AND OUR POPE,
GOT ITS FREEDOM IN 1991.
FOR THE CONNECTION BETWEEN KELLIE EVERTS AND THE PEACE
PLAN OF GOD. SHE WAS BORN ON A PROPITIOUS AND MYSTERIOUS
DAY - JULY 16, 1945. THIS WAS A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS,
BECAUSE IT WAS THE FIRST DAY AN ATOMIC BOMB WAS EXPLODED,
(IN LOS ALAMOS, NEW MEXICO) AND IT WAS ALSO THE FEAST
DAY OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL - OUR LADY OF PEACE. SHE
WAS BORN IN GERMANY, BUT TO A FAMILY WHO HAD JUST RUN
AWAY FROM STALIN; RUN FOR THEIR LIVES. HER FATHER WOULD
HAVE BEEN SENT TO SIBERIA ALONG WITH THE OTHER 30% OF
THE POPULATION OF LITHUANIA. ALL FOLKS IN CHARGE OF THINGS
- DOCTORS, LAWYERS, TEACHERS, POLICE, AND THE LIKE - ANYONE
WHO COULD OPPOSE TYRANNY - WERE SENT TO SIBERIA. MANY
DIED THERE. STALIN HAD ACTUALLY KILLED MORE HUMANS THAN
ANY PERSON IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD; ABOUT 30 MILLION.
FAMILY LEFT GERMANY AND ARRIVED IN THE UNITED STATES ON
JUNE, 1949. THEY LIVED IN A LITHUANIAN COMMUNITY WITHIN
THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. AT FREQUENT COMMUNITY
EVENTS KELLIE EVERTS LISTENED TO HER FATHER GIVE SPEECHES
AGAINST COMMUNISM. THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY CENTERED AROUND
THE NEED TO DELIVER LITHUANIA FROM THE COMMUNIST YOKE.
KELLIE EVERTS WAS A SUITABLE INSTRUMENT TO CARRY THE MESSAGE
OF FATIMA. SHE GRIEVED THAT HER DAD, WHO DIED IN 1979,
DID NOT SEE THE LIBERATION OF HIS BELOVED COUNTRY.
IS VICTORY HERE. THERE IS JUBILATION. THE POWER OF GOD
HAS SPOKEN! RUSSIA AND THE UNITED STATES DID NOT BLOW
THE WORLD UP, AND SO, NATIONS WERE NOT ANNIHILATED. THE
PROPHECY OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA CAME TRUE: RUSSIA WILL
BE CONVERTED...MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH.'
REAGAN HAD JUST DIED. IT WAS JUNE 5, 2004, AND KELLIE
EVERTS HAD AWAKENED WITH A DREAM. IN THE DREAM SOMEONE
SAID TO HER, SOFTLY, GRATEFULLY,
YOU WHO GOT HIM ELECTED.'
REMEMBERED THE SPEECH AT FATIMA. YES, IT WAS THE SPEECH
WHERE THE POWER OF GOD WAS UNLEASED THROUGH OUR BLESSED
MOTHER. SHE FELT JOY. SHE UNDERSTOOD.

Story Of Our Lady Of Fatima
the website of
The Religious Congregation Of Mary Immaculate Queen
the months of May and October of 1917, our Blessed Mother
appeared to three shepherd children near Fatima, Portugal,
giving them a message for the world which has since become
known as the “Peace Plan from Heaven.” She
warned men that if they did not amend their lives, God
would be forced to punish them by means of wars and other

the Secrets of Our Lady Of Fatima in 1917.
were visited by the Angel of Portugal prior to Our Lady’s
appearance. The Angel told them, “What are you doing?
Pray! Pray very much! The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have
merciful designs for you. Offer prayers and sacrifices
constantly to the Most High... In every way you can offer
sacrifice to God in reparation for the sins by which He
is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of
sinners... Above all, accept and endure with submission
the sufferings which the Lord will send you. Take and
drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged
by sinful men. Make reparation for their crimes and console
the message of Fatima it's important to note that
they were first visited by a great angel, and this
angel strengthened them for what was to come, by
giving them the Body and Blood of Christ. They were
visited by this great angel three times.
Blessed Mother appeared to the children she asked them,
“Do you wish to offer yourselves to God, to endure
all the suffering that He may please to send you, as an
act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended,
and to ask for the conversion of sinners?... Then you
will have much to suffer. But the grace of God will be
you suffer a great deal? Don’t be discouraged. I
will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your
refuge and the road that will conduct you to God. Sacrifice
yourself for sinners and say many times, especially when
you make some sacrifice, ‘O my Jesus, it is for
love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed
against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for the conversion
of poor sinners.’
the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world and
the end of the war... If they do what I tell you, many
souls will be saved, and there will be peace. The war
is going to end [World War I]. But if they do not stop
offending God, another and worse one will begin in the
reign of Pius XI... When you see a night illumined by
an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that
God gives you that He is going to punish the world for
its crimes by means of war, of hunger, and of persecution
of the Church and of the Holy Father.
prevent this, I come to ask for the consecration of Russia
to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of reparation
on the First Saturdays. If they listen to my requests,
Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not,
she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking
wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be
martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; many
nations will be annihilated.

loved. He wishes to establish in the world devotion to
my Immaculate Heart.
you see hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save
them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to
my Immaculate Heart... Pray, pray a great deal and make
sacrifices for sinners. So many souls go to hell because
there is no one to pray and sacrifice for them.”
message that men “must amend their lives and ask
forgiveness for their sins,” and that they “offend
the Lord God no more, for He is already much offended”
is meant for all of us, whether we are religious or lay.
It is this message that our Congregation acts to promote,
so that all people can, by praying the daily Rosary, by
offering up their prayers and the sacrifices demanded
by their daily duty, restore the temporal order in Christ.
“SECRET” OF FATIMA
& SECOND PART OF THE “SECRET”
TO THE VERSION PRESENTED BY SISTER LUCIA IN THE “THIRD
MEMOIR” OF 31 AUGUST 1941 FOR THE BISHOP OF LEIRIA-FATIMA
This will entail my speaking about the secret, and thus
answering the first question.
is the secret? It seems to me that I can reveal it, since
I already have permission from Heaven to do so. God's
representatives on earth have authorized me to do this
several times and in various letters, one of which, I
believe, is in your keeping. This letter is from Father
José Bernardo Gonçalves, and in it he advises
me to write to the Holy Father, suggesting, among other
things, that I should reveal the secret. I did say something
about it. But in order not to make my letter too long,
since I was told to keep it short, I confined myself to
the essentials, leaving it to God to provide another more
my second account I have already described in detail the
doubt which tormented me from 13 June until 13 July, and
how it disappeared completely during the Apparition on
the secret is made up of three distinct parts, two of
which I am now going to reveal.
first part is the vision of hell.
Lady showed us a great sea of fire which seemed to be
under the earth. Plunged in this fire were demons and
souls in human form, like transparent burning embers,
all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the
conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that
issued from within themselves together with great clouds
of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in
a huge fire, without weight or equilibrium, and amid shrieks
and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and
made us tremble with fear. The demons could be distinguished
by their terrifying and repulsive likeness to frightful
and unknown animals, all black and transparent. This vision
lasted but an instant. How can we ever be grateful enough
to our kind heavenly Mother, who had already prepared
us by promising, in the first Apparition, to take us to
heaven. Otherwise, I think we would have died of fear
then looked up at Our Lady, who said to us so kindly and
have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To
save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion
to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done,
many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The
war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending
God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate
of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown
light, know that this is the great sign given you by God
that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by
means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and
of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask
for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart,
and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays.
If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and
there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors
throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of
the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father
will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.
In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy
Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be
converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the

on 13 July 1917.
write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do
so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through
your Most Holy Mother and mine.
the two parts which I have already explained, at the left
of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a
flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out
flames that looked as though they would set the world
on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendor
that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand:
pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried
out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!'.
And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something
similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass
in front of it' a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had
the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops,
Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain,
at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn
trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching
there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in
ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted
with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses
he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain,
on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed
by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at
him, and in the same way there died one after another
the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and
various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath
the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with
a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered
up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the
souls that were making their way to God.
