The following post is from back in 2013, right after our humble pontiff moved into the Santa Marta with his dear friends Msgr. Ricca and his “spiritual son” Gustavo Zanchetta. We repost from time to time for those just coming on board.
“And the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it on the earth, and there were thunders and voices and lightnings, and a great earthquake. And the seven angels, who had the seven trumpets, prepared themselves to sound the trumpet.” (Apoc. 8)
As requested, we will be looking at the Church in the light of the Message of Fatima and the Apocalypse. Sister Lucia is reported to have remarked when asked about the Third Secret that it was to be found in the Apocalypse, especially Chapters 8-13; that is to say, beginning with the Seven Trumpets.
Prior to her appearances at Fatima in 1917, Our Lady appeared at Quito, La Salette, Knock and (after Fatima) at Akita, all of which had a common thread of dire warning. Even though the apparition at Knock was silent, its prophetic relevance is clear from our perspective after 50 years of modernist “renewal”.
THE POPE OF THE TRUMPETS
Let’s start with Pope Paul’s Trumpets: In an interview with the Italian newspaper Avvenire, French writer Jean Guitton, a close friend of Pope Paul VI, recalled this interesting bit of history,
“It was the final session of the Council, the most essential in which the Pope was to bestow upon all humanity the teachings of the Council. He announced this to me with these words,‘I am about to blow the Seven Trumpets of the Apocalypse.’ “ (Interview, 11 October, 1992, cited in “Animus Delendi – I”, by Atila Sinke Guimaraes).
Now, the source of this quote, Avvenire, is the newspaper of the Italian Episcopal Conference. Although Guitton seemed to think little of the remark, later mentioning that the Apocalypse speaks of the triumph of the Church, that is not exactly what is referred to in the passage cited by Pope Paul VI. The Angels and Trumpets are introduced in Chapter 8, “And I saw seven angels standing in the presence of God; and there were given to them seven trumpets.” The Angels and Trumpets and the events they usher in are severe chastisements, foretelling in symbolic language widespread heresy, apostasy, violent wars and persecutions, and earthquakes.
Later, 29 June, 1972 on the occasion of the Ninth Anniversary of his election, Paul Paul lamented,
“We believed that after the [Second Vatican] Council would come a day of sunshine in the history of the Church. But instead there has come a day of clouds and storms, and of darkness … “And how did this come about? We will confide to you the thought that maybe we ourselves admit in free discussion, that may be unfounded, and that is that there has been a power, an adversary power. Let us call him by his name: the Devil. … It is as if from some mysterious crack, no, it is not mysterious, from some crack the smoke of Satan has entered the Temple of God.”
Ed note: To clarify, Giovanni Battista Montini was elected Pope June 21, 1963, and June 29, 1972 was when the above event took place commemorating the anniversary of the election. Father Malachi Martin explains the significance of June 29, below.
Pope Paul’s quote comes from the Apocalypse, Chapter 9, verses 1-2:
“And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit.”
It goes on to describe how from the smoke of the pit come locusts, which are interpreted by some commentators as heretics, in fact, that is one of the explanations given in the Douay Rheims Bible. In addition, the darkening of the sun is also seen as prophetic for a loss of faith.
In his fictional work, Windswept House, Father Malachi Martin described the Enthronement of Lucifer within the Vatican on 29 June, 1963, which of course was right after Montini ascended the Papacy as Paul VI. In a subsequent interview, Father Martin confirmed that the Enthronement of Satan had actually occurred although he changed some details for his fictional account.
In March 2010, Father Gabriele Amorth, the chief Vatican exorcist, told Italian newspaper La Repubblica:
“The devil resides in the Vatican and you can see the consequences. … He added: “When one speaks of ‘the smoke of Satan’ [a phrase coined by Pope Paul VI in 1972] in the holy rooms, it is all true – including these latest stories of violence and paedophilia.”
In 2002, Solange Strong Hertz wrote a book in which she builds a very good case that we are well into the period of the Apocalyptic Trumpets. The title is in fact, The Sixth Trumpet. It is published by The Remnant Press, As of 9 October, 2015, this book is available from Remnant Press or from Amazon.
Father Amorth linked the clergy sexual abuse cases with satan’s influence in the Church, and in this, he is right on target. As Sister Lucia reminded us, the devil knows exactly what will destroy the most souls. And what has the Vatican done about it? Under Pope Francis, priest perversion and clericalism seems to be supported as never before, as anyone who has been paying attention knows full well.
There is much more on this important subject as we move closer to the Synod. Pope Francis is releasing his encyclical in which he is expected to commit the Church even more closely to to the anti-Christ agenda of the United Nations, then, in September he will come to America to push his destructive agenda, followed by a visit to the United Nations, all in the run-up to October’s Synod. Truly, “The worst are full of passionate intensity”!
TOWARDS THE CHASTISEMENT
And so the slide towards the climax of the Chastisement continues apace. My intention is to provide you with some appropriate solidly Catholic prophecies, and some solid spiritual writing to strengthen your resolve as we gird ourselves for the tsunami that approaches. In the meantime, please keep us in your prayers, and we too, pray for you.
NOTE January, 2018. These old posts are like time capsules and as we look over them, we note the “progress” in the Bergoglian church in the three years since it was written. Pope Francis has shown support for notorious abortionists Emma Bonino and Lilianne Ploumen, has deconstructed the Pontifical Academy for Life and reconstituted it in his own image in order to promote the anti-life agenda of contraception, abortion and euthanasia. He has continued to wage war against any slightest adherence to the doctrine and practice of the true Faith with his misleading and destructive “Amoris Laetitia”. He has insulted the faithful at every turn, most recently in Chile where he forced Juan Barros as bishop on the remaining faithful of that suffering church despite the outrage of the faithful of Chile. Pope Francis has given the utmost support to promoting priestly perversion from de Kesel to Cupich, to Martin as we have documented. He has continued to insult Our Lady of Fatima on her Centenary. And all this is capped off by honoring Martin Luther while erasing the Immaculata from the Crucifixion and by insulting the Holy Family and the Birth of Christ at Christmas with the disgusting spectacle of the Vatican’s “Nativity” scene. For truly, “the worst are full of passionate intensity”, for they know their time is short. And now is almost up.
ED. NOTE for July, 2019:
Well, things looked bad the last time this old article was posted (It is one of my earliest articles!) but incredibly, Pope Francis has once again exceeded all the worst expectations we had of him. Father Amorth’s warnings about satan in the Vatican, linked to violence and pedophilia are also becoming clearer as we see that pederasty among priests appears to be an accepted “rite of passage” for propagating perversion among the clergy, while often, the true pedophilia, associated with satanic practices goes unnoticed due to human trafficking. It may soon come to pass that the extent of these two practices among those now controlling the Church will become clearer by the next posting of this article.
This article was last posted a year and a half ago. In the interim, we have had so much sex abuse scandals and the Pope’s continued promotion of Bishops who are complicit in them and now we have the Pan-Amazon Synod looming over us. So there is much to motivate us – not to despair certainly, but to redouble our efforts in this great spiritual combat.
By the way, it was really nice to see such a good response to our recent scapular post. There has been a nice increase in interest in family consecrations to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to St. Joseph as well and interest in Enthronement of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts has increased hugely in just the past year. I believe Catholics are at last becoming motivated to look to their spiritual survival and that is why I re-post some articles. Many are just awakening and I often hear from people only now discovering my writings. Much of this is thanks to those of you who are kind enough to spread the word and you are very much appreciated. I pray for you always, and for your families.
Readers, as years go by and the evils throughout society and even within the church increase in both number and intensity, faith is truly becoming extinguished as Pope Benedict foretold. And yet, since the 100 year anniversary of Fatima passed without any sign of repentance or obedience from the Pope and Bishops, the culmination of the great battle between the Blessed Virgin and the Ancient Enemy has gathered momentum. After so many years of expecting it, it is now very difficult to comprehend that it can actually be unfolding right now. The sense of it is both astonishingly evil and surreal – like being caught in some frightful nightmare in slow motion.
We must not lose heart and we must continue to sacrifice in all things for the salvation of sinners, they depend on us!
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! Viva Cristo Rey!
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
† St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect 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 Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!
