The Figure of a Woman – Anticipating 2017

“Alas, wretches that we are! Who will help us, and who will deliver us?”

St. Hildegard’s Vision of the Five Beasts includes another vision, that which she refers to as, “The Figure of a Woman”. This is the strange figure in the woodcut below:

From Vision Eleven, Scivias, The Figure of a Woman:
“And I saw again the figure of a woman whom I had previously seen in front of the altar that stands before the Eyes of God; she stood in the same place, but now I saw her from the waist down. And from her waist to the place that denotes the female, she had various scaly blemishes; and in that latter place was a black and monstrous head. It had fiery eyes and ears like an ass’ and its nostrils and mouth were like a lion’s; it opened wide its jowls and terribly clashed its horrible iron-colored teeth. And from its head down to her knees, the figure was white and red, as if bruised by many beatings; and from her knees to her tendons where they joined her heels, which appeared white, she was covered with blood.

And behold! That monstrous head moved from its place with such a great shock that the figure of the woman was shaken through all her limbs. And a great mass of excrement adhered to the head; and it raised itself up upon a mountain and tried to ascend the height of Heaven. And behold, there came suddenly a thunderbolt, which struck that head with such great force that it fell from the mountain and yielded up its spirit in death. And a reeking cloud enveloped the whole mountain, which wrapped the head in such filth that the people who stood by were thrown into the greatest terror. And that cloud remained around the mountain for a while longer.

The people who stood there, perceiving this, were shaken with great fear, and said to one another: “Alas, alas! What is this? What do you think this was? Alas, wretches that we are! Who will help us, and who will deliver us? For we know not how we were deceived. O Almighty God, have mercy on us! Let us return; let us hasten to the covenant of Christ’s Gospel; for ah, ah, ah! We have been bitterly deceived!“ And lo, the feet of the figure of the woman glowed white, shining with a splendor greater than the sun’s.


Saint Hildegard uses very explicit terms to describe the impurities she prophesies, and some have complained of this. But Pope Benedict XVI called our attention to her writings when he quoted one of her prophecies in an address to the Curia some years ago, and then formally canonized her. I do not mean to cause scandal but merely to call attention to her writings and the truly scandalous events of the reign of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Vicar of Christ.

At one time, I felt it necessary to write on all the tawdry details of this unfortunate papacy, but after much prayer it is quite clear that the sleazy details of this papacy have no place in a site dedicated to the most holy and Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of our Savior, Mother of the Holy Catholic Church.  And so I offer Saint Hildegard’s vision of what I believe is this particular time in the long and difficult history of the Church. Make of it what you will!


Father Malachi Martin spoke of an evil force in the Vatican which he termed  “the Super-Force” and asserted that it cannot be eradicated by human means. It presents itself in the place of Christ Himself, as it has usurped and eclipsed His true Church. It attempts to befoul the Bride of Christ, represented in the vision of St. Hildegard von Bingen as “The Figure of a Woman” in the woodcut above.

The scandalous synod (remember, this originally posted in 2016) and its sequelae such as Amoris Laetitia and the Year of False Mercy are battering down the bastions of the faith, degrading the sense of sin, degrading the sacraments (Marriage, Penance, the Holy Eucharist) and the priesthood itself. Pope Francis proceeds with brutal determination to eliminate the Holy Sacrifice and eclipse Christ’s own Church with a marxist, masonic one world church of doctrinal and moral perversion and corruption.

Christ Himself, the true head of the Church can heal the rupture caused by the protestant revolt. But in its narcissistic hubris the conciliarist Church deems it within its power to unite all in a universal brotherhood, which is the goal of the ancient enemy..

This is the meaning of the Beastly Head raising itself upon a mountain, and attempting to ascend the heights of heaven. The excrement, as always refers both to the filth of heresy and apostasy in the Church and the impurity promoted by the morally corrupt clerics  within the Church.

St. Hildegard’s partial explanation of the vision: “the Church will be harshly reproached for many vices, fornication, murder and rapine. How? Because those who should love her will violently persecute her.”

She describes how the monstrous head causes, “people to deny God and tainting their minds and tearing the Church with the greed of rapine. … The Church will know purity of faith in her children but anguished and bloody terror and the tribulations of many sufferings for herself.”

The ludicrous grotesquerie of the lovely and pure woman with the monstrous beast’s head in her private parts aroused in me the same feeling of loathing I felt when Pope Francis stepped out on the balcony with Danneels at his side, and then I became aware that he was responsible for turning the Synod on the Family into a shameless propaganda vehicle for impurity of all kinds, adultery, fornication and abuse of the Eucharist. Now, with Amoris Laetitia and his subsequent words and actions, it becomes even clearer.


In an earlier post, I noted that, “In Hildegard’s allegory, she states that, “a great mass of excrement adhered to the (monstrous) head, and it raised itself up upon a mountain and tried to ascend the height of Heaven.” This is an apt description of the corrupt clerics who shamelessly promote their betrayal of Christ and His most Holy Mother while seeking to eliminate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  Their betrayal of their vows of purity, their betrayal of the Faith itself,  aspires to reach to the height of Heaven, that is to rule the entire Church, and they will be brought low by the lightning bolt of St. Michael’s mighty sword, at the command of the Immaculata.”

Now, as the auto-demolition accelerates under Pope Francis, it becomes clearer. Under his absolute authority as the Vicar of Christ on earth, he is proceeding to scale the heights and to do what only Christ Himself can do, that is bring about a one world  Church with heretical sects, pagans and atheists of all sorts. This is the meaning of the beast ascending the height of heaven. Note the result: Struck down by St. Michael at the behest of the Immaculate!

“(A )reeking cloud enveloped the whole mountain, which wrapped the head in such filth that the people who stood by were thrown into the greatest terror. And that cloud remained around the mountain for a while longer.”

The quote above refers to the doctrinal filth as well as the moral perversion of the faction which now occupies the Church. Once the monstrous head is disposed of by Divine intervention, all the corruption will be revealed. Those who survive, that is, the few faithful remaining after that time of chastisement, will be awestruck at the extent of the evil when at last the entire truth becomes known. But even though it will be “late”, the Immaculate Mother of God will prevail and the Church will be restored. Bergoglio, Kasper, Danneels, Marx, all will go the way of past evils; what is Good, True, and Beautiful shall prevail.

2017 will be a decisive year in the history of the Church and of the world. Please consider the plea of Bishop Fellay for the new Rosary Crusade, and especially the call for our Rosaries to be fortified with penances. Only by a humble and contrite heart will we be effective. Our penances are essential in overcoming the narcissistic pride of these times, for only a chastened, purified heart will be able to follow Our Lady of the Rosary, who is our only way back to Christ our Lord in this spiritual war..

Remember – Our Lady needs us to obey: First Saturdays of Reparation, daily rosary, at least 5 mysteries, wear her brown scapular and live your Total Consecration to her Immaculate Heart, offering daily duties in reparation and for the conversion of poor sinners.

Open your hearts to the Lord and serve Him only: and He will free you from the hands of your enemies. With all your heart return to Him, and take away from your midst any strange gods” (I Kings 7:3)

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done!

Most Precious Blood of Jesus, save us, save our priests!

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin, give me strength against thy enemies.
