I agree that it may not matter whether we believe or not. But it does appear that our actions have some bearingon what the supernatural forces can accomplish.

For example, Mother Mary promised that if enough people say the rasary every day, then she will convert Russia. I think that came from the Fatima prophecies.

It sounds like she could do it if she wanted and just did it, for I think it`s already come true, as a reward for devotion.

However, my intuitive feeling is that she needed the supernatural energy generated by all the mantras- the Rosary is the western equivalent of a mantra- in order to bring about the conversion. So it`s a two-way street in my opinion. Our devotion, however expressed gives them the power to control our lives and with sufficient numbers, to control the world.

Presumably by feeding spiritual energy into the supernatural all our lives, we ultimately get to experience the supernatural with benovelence after we pass away.

It follows that there is work to be done on the other side, most likely involving the destiny of this Earth. So if we are successful, we probably just pass from one job in the natural world to another in the supernatural world.
