Cardinal Manning on Bergoglio’s Reformation

Previously Posted on  October 19, 2016
This is a long post, but thank you for reading- it is necessary to review this in order to  understand the importance of what is occurring now. Never before in Church history has the declared and accepted Vicar of Christ promoted such destructive policies against our Lord Jesus Christ. As in St. John Bosco’s Vision of the Two Pillars, the Barque of Peter has become unmoored and has entered into dangerous waters. Since posting this earlier today, please note that new material has been added. Please take some time to prayerfully consider:

Long before Cardinals Danneels, Marx and Kasper got their man, Bergoglio in the See of Peter, a holy Cardinal in England, a convert actually, foretold much of what we are now seeing. Cardinal Henry Edward Manning in “The Present Crisis in the Holy See”,  warned of a grave crisis facing the Church. The book’s four chapters, “The Progress of the Mystery of Iniquity, the Antichrist, What Holds Back the Antichrist  and The Apostasy of Rome“, are a solemn warning to the Church for these times.

Early in his book, Cardinal Manning states that the three notes of the Apostasy are schism, heresy and denial of the Incarnation, and concludes that all the heresies from the beginning are but the continuous development and expansion of the one “mystery of iniquity” which from the beginning wars against the mystery of the faith.

Likening the heresies which have afflicted the Church to diseases, he remarks:

“To name no more than these,— Gnosticism, Arianism, and, above all, Protestantism, have generated each a multitude of subordinate and affiliated heresies. But  it is Protestantism which, above all others, bears the three notes of the inspired writers in the greatest breadth and evidence. Other heresies have opposed parts and details of the Christian faith and Church; but Protestantism, taken in its historical complex, as we now are able, with the retrospect of three hundred years, to measure it, reaching from the religion of Luther, Calvin, and Cranmer at the one end, to the Rationalism and Pantheism of England and Germany at the other, is of all the most formal, detailed and commensurate antagonist of Christianity.

“I do not mean that it has as yet attained its full development, for we shall see reasons to believe that it (protestant heresy) is still pregnant with a darker future; but even as “the mystery of iniquity” has already worked, no other antagonist (than Protestantism) has as yet gone so deep in undermining the faith of the Christian world.”

Cardinal Manning thus foresaw that even in 1861, the protestant heresy was  “still pregnant with a darker future”. And so it was. We have seen that after the Second Vatican Council, the heresy of modernism (in which protestantism subsists) advanced even into the highest echelons of the Catholic Church. Cardinal Manning then observed two consequences of the heretical movements of the mystery of iniquity. The first of these is the rise of nationalism and the second is the deification of man, which has become rampant since Vatican II. And now has seemingly triumphed under the destructive reign of Luther’s own Pope Francis.

Cardinal Manning explains that while heresy in the individual dissolves the unity of the incarnation, heresy in a nation (think here of the Germans under Kasper/Marx) dissolves the unity in the Church. “This process of national defection which began openly with the Protestant reformation, is running its course.” Collegiality is the further stage of this nationalism and will be used by the revolutionaries in the Church to advance their agenda after the final Synod in October.

Regarding the deification of man, Cardinal Manning cites as examples the pantheism of German philosophers such as Schelling, Hegel and Hillebrand and the positivism of Comte. He concludes,

“It will be observed that both Pantheism and Positivism alike end in the deification of man: they are a boundless egotism and an apotheosis of human pride.”

Pantheism is prevalent today as the myriad fads of the  “New Age” phenomenon.   And both these noxious heresies animate the universal religion of man promoted by the United Nations and its most enthusiastic spokesperson, our humble pontiff in his Bergoglian Reformation.

Cardinal Manning affirmed that the Antichrist will be a real person and at that time (1861) was restrained to a certain extent by Christendom, or Catholic society, although he noted that the restraint was growing weaker day by day. He then asks rhetorically, who it is that removes the restraint on the antichristian forces of disorder. His answer:

“If the barrier which has hindered the development of the principle of antichristian disorder has been the Divine power of Jesus Christ our Lord, incorporated in the Church and guided by his Vicar, then no hand is mighty enough, and no will is sovereign enough to take it out of the way, but only the hand and the will of the incarnate Son of God Himself.”

His Excellency quotes Doneso Cortez, the great Spaniard, to the effect that Christian society is doomed and that the principles now ascendant are universally anti-christian. From Cortez:

“European society is dying. The extremities are cold: the heart will be soon. And do you know why it is dying? It is dying because it has been poisoned; because God made it to be nourished with the substance of Catholic truth, and the empirical doctors have given it for food the substance of rationalism. … It is dying because error is killing it, and because society is now founded upon errors. …Individuals may still save themselves because individuals may always be saved; but society is lost, … because it has no will to save itself.

Both Manning and Cortez wrote before the disastrous twentieth century, during which the two World Wars destroyed the great old Catholic monarchies and established the forces of Marxism and international finance/freemasonry. Now, in the twenty-first century, we see the errors of Russia thoroughly permeating every society and being advanced by the forces of one world government and its one world religion.

The restraint on the forces of Antichrist was removed as a direct result of the Church’s refusal to obey Our Lady of Fatima. This arrogant disobedience of the pontiffs is what caused the release of the diabolical forces of disorder against the Church, as foretold by the vision of Pope Leo XIII. Cardinal Manning rightly believed that the strength of the papacy was a bulwark against the incursion of error in the Church.  And when he predicted that secular powers would remove the pope, he was correct; however, the secular powers became entrenched within the Church, which was something he did not anticipate.

How did the papacy fail?

By their disobedience to the Blessed Virgin at Fatima, each pope from Pius XI onwards set themselves against God’s will; eventually, by the time of John XXIII, becoming openly defiant and flatly refusing her command. Thus, from John XXIII on, the popes effectively removed themselves as the bulwark against the antichristic agenda.  And now, this has culminated under the present pope, who is frankly, openly antichristic. Not Antichrist. In Pope Bergoglio, we have the first thoroughly modernist pope. This tragedy was perhaps, foretold by Cardinal Pacelli before he became Pope Pius XII and also by St. Francis of Assisi.

“For in those days, Jesus Christ will send them not a true pastor, but a destroyer.”

Even though he did not foresee an apostate pope in the future, the Cardinal did foresee that horrible fate which was in store for the Church in these sad days:

“The Word of God tells us that towards the end of time the power of this world will became so irresistible and so triumphant that the Church of God will sink underneath its hand … It will be deprived of protection. It will be weakened, baffled, and prostrate, and will lie bleeding at the feet of the powers of this world.”

“The apostasy of the city of Rome from the Vicar of Christ, and its destruction by Antichrist, may be thoughts so new to many Catholics, that I think it well to recite the text of theologians in the greatest repute.

“First, Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Viegas, Suarez, Bellarmine and Bosius, that Rome shall apostatise from the faith and drive away the Vicar of Christ, and return to its ancient paganism. Malvenda’s words are: “Rome itself in the last times of the world will return to its ancient idolatry, power, and imperial greatness. It will cast out its Pontiff, altogether apostatise from the Christian faith, terribly persecute the Church, shed the blood of martyrs more cruelly than ever, and will recover its former state of abundant wealth, or even greater than it had under its first rulers.”

You see here that Manning and the Church Fathers foresee the persecution of the Church, however they state clearly that the Pope will be cast out by secular “Rome”. They did not foresee this current state of affairs when the Vicar of Christ will himself, attempt to cast Christ from His Church. To clarify this, consider Cardinal Pacelli’s remarks before he became Pope Pius XII:

“I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucia of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul … A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God.” (original source from Traditioninaction.org)

This dire warning by Pope Pius XII indicates the apostasy begins with the Popesince only with the Pope’s collusion can apostasy advance in the Church enough to be termed “suicide” of the faith. It was with the complicity of Pope Paul VI that Vatican II worked its disastrous agenda against the Church.

Just before his death, St. Francis of Assisi also prophesied about these times:

“Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true pastor but a destroyer.” (From The Works of the Seraphic Father, Washbourne, 1882, available online: Archive.org)

To continue with Cardinal Manning:

“Finally, Cornelius A. Lapide sums up what may be said to be the common interpretation of theologians. Commenting on the … eighteenth chapter of the Apocalypse, (regarding Rome) he says: “… from Christian it shall again become heathen. It shall cast out the Christian Pontiff, and the faithful who adhere to him. It shall persecute and slay them. It shall rival the persecutions of the heathen emperors against the Christians. . . . . For so we see Jerusalem was first heathen under the Canaanite; secondly, faithful under the Jews; thirdly, Christian under the Apostles; fourthly, heathen again under the Romans; fifthly, Saracen under the Turks.”

If Jerusalem is a foreshadowing of Rome, Lapide’s words, ”Saracen under the Turks” are interesting, aren’t they?

Fr. Lapide’s comment that Rome will cast out the Christian pontiff was fulfilled when the modernists silenced Pope Benedict and fraudulently elected Bergoglio to replace him. Manning concludes that Rome will become apostate under the revolution and then pagan under the Antichrist. With Francis we are seeing the fulfillment of the revolution in the Church that began with Vatican II. The periti at Vatican II referred to it as the Revolution of 1789 within the Church, and so it was.

Cardinal Manning states that,

“…the Antichrist, and the antichristian movement … is the direct and mortal enemy of the One Holy Catholic and Roman Church— the unity from which all schism is made; the sole organ of the Divine voice of the Spirit of God; the shrine and sanctuary of the Incarnation and of the continual sacrifice. …

“These are times of sifting. Our Divine Lord is standing in the Church: “His fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly cleanse His (own) and He will gather the grain into His barn, and will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” It is a time of trial, when “some of the learned shall fall,” and those only shall be saved who are steadfast to the end.”

In his conclusion, Cardinal Manning adds a note:

“Saint Alphonsus says: “Hence St. Bonaventure says that in the Mass God manifest to us all the love that He has borne us, and includes in it, as in a compendium, all His benefits. On this account the Devil has always endeavored to abolish the Mass throughout the world by means of heretics, making them the precursors of Antichrist who, before all things, will endeavor to abolish, and in fact will, in punishment for the sins of men, succeed in abolishing the Holy Sacrifice of the Altar, according to the prediction of Daniel: ‘And strength was given him against the continual sacrifice because of sins.’”

In the above quoted passages the Cardinal foresees that the Church will be compromised, and that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be effectively stopped. This could happen quite quickly if, after the final Synod, the Bishops emulate the heretical German Bishops who already allow those who are unrepentant in mortal sin to receive Our Lord in Holy Communion.

By doing so, they are institutionalizing sacrilege of Our Lord in place of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The resulting abomination bears more resemblance to a satanic anti-Mass than to the Holy Sacrifice. It would not be a so-called Black Mass because that mass actually inverts the true Latin Mass, not the vapid Novus Ordo.

[End of quote from previous post] To recap, in the above post, we began by paraphrasing from Cardinal Manning,

“…the three notes of the Apostasy are schism, heresy and denial of the Incarnation, and concludes that all the heresies from the beginning are but the continuous development and expansion of the one “mystery of iniquity” which from the beginning wars against the mystery of the faith.

The reason for this is to point out that the modernist “reformation” promoted by this current pope is a specific attack on the essential truths of the Faith, the Incarnation, the Real Presence, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. This attack and its consequences, was vividly foretold by Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora:

“In 1816, Our Lady appeared to Blessed Elizabeth on Christmas Day with the Christ Child in her arms. Elizabeth was struck by the deep sorrow of the Blessed Mother’s countenance and asked Our Lady what could be the cause of such sorrow, “Behold, my daughter, such great ungodliness.” Blessed Elizabeth then saw “apostates brazenly trying to rip her most holy Son from her arms. Confronted with such an outrage, the Mother of God ceased to ask mercy for the world, and instead requested justice from the Eternal Father. Clothed in His inexorable Justice and full of indignation, He turned to the world.

 “At that moment all nature went into convulsions, the world lost its normal order and was filled with the most terrible calamity imaginable. This will be something so deplorable and atrocious that it will reduce the world to the ultimate depths of desolation.”

Note that this vision occurred on Christmas Day. It foretells Our Lady’s anguish at those who attack her Divine Son in His sacrament of love. It is an intimation of the sacrilege promoted by Pope Francis and those who currently occupy the visible Church.

To summarize: As we noted at the beginning, Pope Francis, by his actions in the subversive Synods of 2014 and 2015 and the subsequent (and heretical) Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, is attempting to unmoor the Church from the pillars of Eucharistic Devotion and Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. He is forging ahead with his rehabilitation of the arch-heretic Martin Luther. By his actions, he appears to be fulfilling many prophecies:

  • The prophecy of St. Francis of Assisi and becoming the destroyer pope.
  • The prophecy of Cardinal Pacelli (later Pius XII) of the suicide of the faith, which could only be accomplished by the head of the Church, the Vicar of Christ in a monumental act of betrayal.
  • And we very well may see the fulfillment of Cardinal Manning’s prediction that  the Church “will be weakened, baffled, and prostrate, and will lie bleeding at the feet of the powers of this world.”

It is urgent that you grasp the significance of this. You must see the importance of this time! Again, and yet again, please, pray the Rosary, please offer reparation!

  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!
  St. Joseph, terror of demons, 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 our Lord Jesus Christ, King!

Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin, give me strength against thine enemies!

The Message of Fatima, a Great Sign, 2022

Last posted August 28, 2021. Earlier posts were from 2015 and 2016.

Although Pope John XXIII refused to release the long-awaited Third Secret of Fatima, it is noteworthy that the popes who succeeded him, Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI, all  referenced the Apocalypse or the last times when speaking of Fatima.

In that earlier post, we discussed that Pope Paul VI made a pilgrimage to Fatima on May 13, 1967 for  the 50th anniversary of Our Lady’s first visit. In his address, he referred to “The great sign which the Apostle John saw in Heaven, “a woman clothed with the sun,”  in connection with Our Lady of Fatima.  After thus linking  Fatima with Chapter 12 of the Apocalypse, he cautioned, “we wish to call the attention of all sons of the Church once more to the indissoluble link between the spiritual motherhood of Mary … and the duties of redeemed men toward Her, the Mother of the Church.”  It was quintessentially typical of him that he urges  the faithful to be obedient even as he disobeyed the Blessed Mother and betrayed her children. (Pope Paul VI,Apostolic Letter, “Signum Magnum”, that is, Great Sign)

The Great Red Dragon

And then, on the same date, in the same place, but 33 years later,  that is, in 2000,  Pope John Paul II spoke on the occasion of the Beatification of the Fatima shepherds, Jacinta and Francisco,

“Another portent appeared in Heaven; behold, a great red dragon” (Apoc. 12:3). These words from the first reading of the Mass make us think of the great struggle between good and evil, showing how, when man puts God aside, he cannot achieve happiness, but ends up destroying himself.…

“The Message of Fatima is a call to conversion, alerting humanity to have nothing to do with the ‘dragon’ whose ‘tail swept down a third of the stars of Heaven, and cast them to the earth’ ” (Apoc. 12:4).  (Pope John Paul II, Homily at Fatima, May 13, 2000)

Ten years after Pope John Paul II’s reference linking the message of Fatima with Apocalypse, Chapter 12, Pope Benedict XVI on  May 13, 2010, said of the message of Fatima:

“He deceives himself who thinks that the prophetic mission of Fatima is concluded.” He added: “There are indicated future realities of the Church which little by little are manifesting themselves… and therefore it is the sufferings of the Church which are announced.”

Fatima, Vatican II and the Chastisement I

The following is a restoration from a post of 2015.

This is the introduction to a planned series of posts in which we hope to place the Message of Fatima, particularly the Chastisement and the Second Vatican Council in context. Our Lady of Fatima’s message is a heaven-sent offer to restore faith in the Church and peace in our world.

Even in 1917, it was clear that heresy, apostasy and schism were endangering the faith. To correct the growing secular humanism, Our Lady came, requesting prayer and penance, and offering the Pope and hierarchy a simple way to reaffirm their obedience to God. However, the hierarchy of the Church, while giving lip service to the Message of Fatima, in fact refused to comply. By the disobedience of the Popes, God withdrew His grace more and more, until the year 1960. Pope John XXIII’s final act of disobedience set the Church adrift.

THE CHURCH UNMOORED

To understand the concept of “the Church adrift”, it is helpful to recall St. John Bosco’s Vision of the Two Pillars. In May, 1862, Don Bosco told of a dream he had of the Church as a stately ship in stormy waters, being besieged by many lesser ships. The ship’s commander, the Pope, was attempting to bring the ship between two pillars to which he would moor it. After the Commander Pope was killed, another Pope took over and successfully moored the ship between the two columns. Don Bosco identified the smaller of the two pillars as Mary, Help of Christians and the larger one as the Most Blessed Sacrament, Salvation of Believers.

Note that in St. John Bosco’s dream, the ship of the Church was struggling to fight off attackers and return to safe harbor between the two pillars of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Holy Eucharist. Thus, the Church was attempting to return to those devotions, implying that the Church had become unmoored from them. This was a vision of our post-conciliar church.

And the Sixth Angel Sounded the Trumpet

posted on : november 7, 2018  by : evensong
“One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter.
And the sixth angel sounded the trumpet:”

[13] … and I heard a voice from the four horns of the great altar, which is before the eyes of God, [14] Saying to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates. [15] And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year: for to kill the third part of men.

[16] And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. [17] And thus I saw the horses in the vision: and they that sat on them, had breastplates of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone. [18] And by these three plagues was slain the third part of men, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. [19] For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For, their tails are like to serpents, and have heads: and with them they hurt. [20] And the rest of the men, who were not slain by these plagues, did not do penance from the works of their hands, that they should not adore devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

[21] Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts. (Apocalypse Chapter 9, verses 13-21)

With the Sixth Angel’s Trumpet, we are introduced to the most severe chastisement so far.

The Seven Trumpets

Today, another restored post from the past… I apologise that it has not been updated yet.

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,

The Auto-demolition of the Church

I’ve been restoring old posts and decided that this old post from 2015 needs to be seen again. I have not edited but did add a couple of photos.

Miserabilism demands that the Church and her hierarchy divest of all properties and splendor and become truly indigent. It was evident particularly in the Protestant revolution which hated the beauty of Catholic art, architecture, music and all that caused the Church to have dignity. Miserabilism would strip the Church of her beauty, both spiritual and temporal in the name of a false humility.This heretical tendency is among the many that were part of the revolution of Vatican II and now reaches its full flowering in Pope Francis, the First Humble Pope in History®.

Msgr. Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, made this astonishing prophecy on the future upheaval in the Church:

“I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucia of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul. … I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject Her ornaments and make Her feel remorse for Her historical past.

“A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, ‘Where have they taken Him?’” (Roche, Pie XII Devant L’Historie, p. 52-53, quoted by Father Kramer in “The Devil’s Final Battle”, 2002, Good Counsel Publications.  Thorough documentation on this quote, including the date, 1933, can be found at the website of Atila Sinke Guimaraes, Tradition in Action.)

Malachi Martin on the Apostasy of the Faith

The following post has been published many times over the years and updated from time to time.  It is posted today because frankly, I made a mistake. I had intended it for Friday. I am sorry for my error and hope you will not overlook the last post prior to this. I have been working very hard to re-publish all the posts necessary to express Our Lady’s Fatima Message and the private and sacred prophecies related to it, within the context of this present time. In addition, I hope to have every appropriate devotion to sustain us in these times.
Father Malachi Martin died before seeing this brave new century and this destructive agenda which he had foretold. What would he think today?

“ALL DIVORCED WILL BE ADMITTED”

Pope Francis to Eugenio Scalfari of La Repubblica, the Pope’s favorite newspaper: “this is bottom line result, the de facto appraisals are entrusted to the confessors, but at the end of faster or slower paths, all the divorced who ask will be admitted.” (Rorate Caeli)

The above is shocking, of course, even though we knew it was coming to this. But to help us get  some perspective, let’s take a brief look at what Malachi Martin predicted back in the 1990’s.

The Centenary of Fatima and the Passion of the Church, 2021

On Father Malachi Martin, Pope Benedict XVI and the Third Secret of Fatima, Satan’s War for Christ’s Church.

By request, repost from 2017, still pertinent today.

Father Malachi Martin was bound, unfairly he believed, but nevertheless bound by an oath against revealing the Third Secret, or more properly, the third portion of the Secret of Fatima. But this chafed him so that he increasingly indicated insights into the secret’s meaning as time went by and the devil’s own chaos increased in the Church. It must have been a terrible burden to know that if only he were able to speak out, so many souls might have repented and been saved! But Father took solace in obedience, knowing as he did that it was by way of the arrogant disobedience of Popes that this assault from hell came about.

And so, even though bound by his oath, Father allowed certain insights. If we review all the hints he gave us in his books and interviews, they fall into a pattern roughly consisting of three portions,

Fatima – the Chastisement of Impurity, 2021

“Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle
against the Blessed Virgin.”

(Sister Lucia of Fatima, 1957)

In her last interview with Father Agustin Fuentes, December 26, 1957, Sister Lucia of Fatima, perhaps aware that she was about to be silenced by the Vatican, warned us all,

“Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil knows what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls. Thus, the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God, because in this way, the devil will succeed in leaving souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize them.

“That which afflicts the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus is the fall of religious and priestly souls. The devil knows that religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag innumerable souls to Hell … The devil wishes to take possession of consecrated souls. He tries to corrupt them in order to lull to sleep the souls of laypeople and thereby lead them to final impenitence.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima to Father Agustin Fuentes, December, 1957)

Chastisement

On the current Chastisement, a repost from 2018, restored

When we scan the distance, we may be misled by mirages, and when we attempt to predict the future we can be misled as well. In attempting to correlate various insights from well-informed priests, private revelations along with Holy Scripture and more recent revelations such as Our Lady’s apparitions to LaSalette, Fatima and Akita, much danger of error enters in.

The Apostasy of Faith
Begins at the Top

Many who were closest to Pope John Paul II have indicated that the withheld portion of the Third Secret made reference to “apostasy beginning at the top”. By now, pretty much anyone with eyes to see is aware that under Pope Francis, the leaders of the Church are drifting away from the faith, and I may even say,  they appear to be complicit in attempting to destroy it. My own opinion is that the poor man who presents himself as Pope Francis represents an important step in the progression of the spiritual chastisement that has come about as a result of the disobedience of the Popes. That said, we must pray for him!

The entire reason that the most Blessed Virgin Mary appeared at Fatima was because she was serving God, sent by God to call His children back from their proud and disobedient ways.  For it was disobedience, driven by pride that drove Lucifer from heaven. And it was disobedience, driven by pride, that drove Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. In His loving providence, Our Father sent us His only Begotten Son to save us by sacrificing His life for us. It was His will that the very Body and Blood of our redemption was from the Blessed Virgin Mary, and so it came to pass that Mary’s humble obedience made our redemption possible.

With the passage of centuries, faith grew cold and disobedience sprang up in the Church; pride corrupted many from laity to priests and even Bishops, Cardinals and Popes. God’s providence sent the Blessed Virgin Mary to teach us again to be humble and to obey. This was her message at Fatima.

Yes, you know all this already. but have you fully appreciated that God, through Our Lady of Fatima, is calling the Church to return to this humility, this obedience?

In a recently discarded post, I attempted to recap the three visits of the Angel and the six visits of Our Lady of Fatima in order to show that the message began with the Angel’s urging to pray and offer sacrifices and culminated in the astounding, profound Eucharistic Vision and Eucharistic Prayer of Reparation. This series of apparitions was to form the basis for the visits of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Third Visit of Our Lady of Fatima, on July 13, 1917 was the central one, the others are either prefatory or emphasise it. The last visit, the Miracle of the Sun is to help us believe the message of the Third Visit. I was unable to complete that effort, but do hope that this brief post will be of some use.

A Clarity of Vision

When we consider the entire nine visits, certain points become clear. They are:

† . Offer prayer and sacrifice, making of everything an opprtunity for offering reparation to God for sins and for the conversion of sinners.

† . Accept and bear with submission the sufferings God will send you.

† . Pray the Rosary daily.

† . The importance of making reparation for the sacrilege and outrage to the Holy Eucharist, and the indifference shown to these abuses to the Sacrifice of the Mass and the most Blessed Sacrament.

† . Persistence and patience in visiting our Blessed Mother.

† . Sacrifice yourself for sinners, “O Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary’ “.

† . Hell exists and many, many go there. To save them, God wants the Church to establish devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

† . If we obey her, many souls will be saved, peace will come, Russia will be converted and there will be peace, this is repeated for emphasis.

† . If she is not obeyed and people continue to offend God, a worse war will break out in the reign of Pius XI, God will punish the world for its crimes by means of war, famines and persecutions against the Church and the Holy Father, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.

† . To prevent the chastisements, she will come to ask for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.

† . “In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, and she will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Another portion of the message contained the famous lines, “In Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved, etc. [This marks the third part of the secret, not yet not revealed]  Do not tell this to anybody.”

The reason for the above summary is so that we can have a ready reference to the essential themes. Even a child easily understands the simple messages, the call for prayer, sacrifice, the need to console God for these horrible sacrileges, outrages and the crass indifference to them. Anyone should be able to see the importance of fulfilling the simple requests  to spread devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for the First Saturdays of Reparation, which she promises to reward so richly. Much has been made of the difficulty in making the Consecration of Russia. But had the previous requests (establish devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for First Fridays of Reparation) been obeyed, there would have been such a profusion of graces and miracles that the Consecration of Russia would easily have been accomplished.

The Worst Offense: Pope’s Disobedience

Now something important must be noted here. The war spoken of in the reign of Pius XI, that is, World War II occurred as Our Lady told us, because people won’t stop offending God. Now, that worst offense is for the Pope to refuse to obey the Mother of God. Our Lady of Fatima warned that war is punishment for sin. The offenses trigger the war, which is part of the material chastisement of war, famine and persecutions. We must not forget that the chastisements will continue until obedience is either given or extracted by the ongoing miseries.

The missing portion, (the “etc.”) contains, as we have gathered from those who know, the spiritual chastisement, that is, the massive apostasy from the faith which “begins at the top”, which is why I ventured the hotly contested claim that the current occupant may be an apostate. It appears clear by now, that his words and actions do not appear Christian.

The reason I have taken the time to reiterate all this is that at this time, some well-respected Catholics much more knowledgeable that I have made some remarkably erroneous statements. And many commenters approve of them enthusiastically.

Points in conclusion:

† . The chastisement is increasing in magnitude and it is both material and spiritual. Those who do not repent and consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will find it nearly impossible to withstand the satanic onslaught.

. There will be a war such as not previously been seen nor imagined and natural disasters of great magnitude.

. Russia has indeed been the source of the errors which beset us. Communism is defined by Josef Stalin as Marxism/Leninism, which is further defined as dialectical and historical materialism. It is satanic and atheistic and Jorge Mario Bergoglio has consistently displayed his acceptance of it as have many priests and prelates. This dialectical materialism has become so widespread and ingrained in our society that no one takes notice of it any more; it is evidenced in the two party system and all the myriad “choices” we are demanded to make each day. Often we are so easily tricked into making one of the two false choices offered – we are thus led into “the least bad” choice.

. The original “error of Russia” was orthodoxy’s choice to reject the authority of the papacy. This vacuum was the opening for the satanic “anti-faith” of Marxism/Leninism’s atheistic materialism. Christ the King must rule, and He chooses to do so through His Immaculate Mother, Our Lady of the Rosary. Note this well!

. Indeed, Western society, such as it is, is suffused with dialectical materialism. The West has not been Christian for some time, although many Catholics do not seem to notice this.

I am eager that the truth be told, that issues be brought before you clearly. Satanic marxism reigns in the Church and in Europe and Asia and the countries of the West.  It will triumph at least in appearance and we will be scattered and defeated. In the Church, satan seeks to attack the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Blessed Sacrament and the Holy Sacrifice with sacrilege, and then destroy them altogether. To this end he has corrupted the clergy, especially the hierarchy. But at this point, even the faithful are all too often misled by the multiplicity of false prophets among them.

Yes, the battle over the family is important, but the battle began with satan’s attack on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Holy Eucharist. That is essential to keep in mind and make reparation for. The same prelates have been oblivious to the decades of massive abuse of the Holy Sacrifice, of the Body and Blood of Christ. They have not obeyed the message of Fatima.

Please, return to the beginning, and re-read or better still reread my posts on the Angel’s message. Then please, pray, sacrifice, adore Him and make of everything you can a reparation. Now is the time to redouble our efforts to obey.

Please, Pray the Rosary and confound satan and those who serve him!

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.
