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 Vanishing Possibility of Repentance

“… She saith in her heart: ‘I sit a queen, no widow am I;
and sorrow I shall not see’.”

(Apoc. 18, 7)

Today for you, an updated post from years past which is particularly poignant today, as the pure and holy Bride of Christ suffers under those who now afflict her. Return to the Message of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima.

In the earlier post I foretold that the major governments of the world will eventually expose the institutional church for the corrupt international business it has become in order to shame and disempower it. That holds true, I believe, but of a more urgent need is the instensifying of the spiritual chastisement, especially the attacks againt the Holy Sacrifice and the religious orders. And undergirding all is the pope’s hatred for Our Lady.

THE ONGOING SPIRITUAL CHASTISEMENT

. . .  will result in the fulfillment of the prophecy which is mentioned by several modernist popes, for example Paul VI, “Yes, the smoke of Satan is in the sanctuary. Due to the presence of Satan, “Catholics are destined to become an infinitesimally small part of humanity.”(“Malachi Martin on the Apostasy of the Faith”)

Those now in possession of the Vatican are set on “self-destruct” and will not be dissuaded from their goal. The very possibility of their repentance is dwindling with each day.

INSTITUTIONALIZED INIQUITY

The inability of the Pope and his followers to repent is a cornerstone of the auto-demolition of the institutional church. In the recent Vatican Priest Sex Abuse Summit we have seen a perfect example of the pervasiveness of the homosexual mindset among the ruling prelates. Some background helps us grasp the significance of institutionalized iniquity:

We have discussed before that a time is coming when those who willfully persist in grave sin will become unable to repent; for example; Father Martin warned that at the approach of the chastisement, there will be general confusion of minds and darkening of the understanding and that “Whole sections of continents … washed away forever. Whole nations … perish. Whole nations … lose their faith. Natural catastrophes that the world has never seen before … level humanity.” . . .

“The confusion of minds is something we are only just beginning to see, but it is becoming more noticeable very quickly. This will be an important portion of the chastisement.

“Do you remember when Father Martin said that if only the secret were revealed, it would fill the Churches, the confessionals? The cause for this is that people would then understand that if they do not repent now, they will soon be unable to repent; that is, there will be such a darkening that people will no longer be able to repent.

“They will be left in their sins, that is, in the power of Satan, unable to repent, unable to withstand his diabolical control. That is why the prophecies say that the living will envy the dead. (“The Centenary of Fatima and the Passion of the Church”)

The Vatican’s recent mockery of a response to the worldwide priest sex abuse scandal is the perfect example of an institution so thoroughly perverted by sin that it is blinded and unable to respond to the crisis in any coherent way. Only those who are living lives unmoored from the faith could be deceived in this way. Those remaining in the faith can only suffer and pray for God’s mercy for us all.

For the clearest example of the causes and effects of this spiritual blindness, please read Dr. Peter Kwasniewski’s, “How the 8 daughters of lust influenced Vatican’s sex abuse summit“: 

“We have resources in our Catholic tradition to understand at least part of what is going on in the Church today…In the 31st book of the Moralia, St. Gregory speaks of ‘the eight daughters of lust.’ These are “blindness of mind, thoughtlessness, inconstancy, rashness, self-love, hatred of God, love of this world and abhorrence or despair of a future world.”

THE SUMMIT OF SHAME

As you read Dr. Kwasniewski’s article, it begins to seem as though St. Gregory was giving us a vision of Pope Francis, Cupich, Scicluna, and the rest of these pathetic men. Each person I have spoken with experienced the same deep sorrow in response to Pope Francis’s  Summit.  It is both humiliating and embarrassing to have these vulgar posers stand before the world brazenly representing themselves as humble servants of Christ’s Holy Church. Even their worst enemy is moved to beg God’s mercy for their spiritual nakedness.

It may well be that Pope Francis is now dependent on the “rigid” Catholic faithful he most despises to intercede for him.  Unless God hears our prayers and brings some extraordinary power to bear on him, Pope Francis may be eternally stuck on stupid. In his closing remarks after the Summit Pope Francis said:

“We need to recognize with humility and courage that we stand face to face with the mystery of evil, which strikes most violently against the most vulnerable, for they are an image of Jesus,” . . .

“ ‘In people’s justified anger, the Church sees the reflection of the wrath of God, betrayed and insulted by these deceitful consecrated persons. The echo of the silent cry of the little ones who, instead of finding in them fathers and spiritual guides, encountered tormentors, will shake hearts dulled by hypocrisy and by power. It is our duty to pay close heed to this silent, choked cry,’ Francis said.” (“Pope Francis Outlines 8-Point Plan for ‘All-Out Battle’ Against Sexual Abuse”) 

POPE FRANCIS AND THE “MONSTROUS HEAD”

Pope Francis actually spoke those words with a straight face, “most vulnerable”, “image of Jesus”, the people’s justified anger is “the reflection of the wrath of God”.  Francis speaks of deceitful consecrated persons”, but refuses to identify any of those “deceitful consecrated persons” as those whom he has tolerated, protected and/or promoted, such as McCarrick, Zanchetta, Corradi, Inzoli.  Speaking of the victims, Pope Francis said that, “it is our duty to pay close heed to this silent, choked cry.” Yet this pope has been remarkably caustic and unsympathetic when the victims have attempted to speak out and attacked them as serving the “Great Accuser”.  Each new abuse revelation begs the question  “Who is actually responsible for this “choking” of victims?”

We may be approaching that which was prophesied by St. Hildegard von Bingen and which was indirectly warned of by Pope Benedict XVI: The Figure of a Woman, anticipating 2017

“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.

It is useful to think on the significance of this; of the head, of the mountain, of the lightning bolt, and especially, of “the reeking cloud”.  Note that after realizing they had been deceived the faithful “hastened to (return) to the covenant of Christ’s Gospel”. But this poor pope and his followers prefer to linger in the excrement. What a pity.

NAME THE SIN!

It’s a fairly safe bet that Pope Francis will stand his ground, insisting, as he has before,  that he is “by the will of Christ Himself – the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful”. And that he enjoys, “supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church”. He believes that no one can stop him. He may very well be right.

Appointing committees and speaking in vague terms about fasting and prayers is really not the answer. Name the sin you are repenting! Speak out the name of the sin!  And then, publicly repent of them!

“The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.”

THE VANISHING POSSIBILITY OF REPENTANCE

There will be no pardon because there will be no more repentance. There will be no more repentance because these men  give each other, as they themselves affirm “precious support”. These weak men depend upon each other to such an extent there is simply no need for the faith or for the faithful.  Let them go, the reeking cloud will soon dissipate.

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!

†  St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.

†  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Enter by the Gate

Where now?

This is the time in which many false leaders will abound. A time of increasing darkness and confusion. In a better time, which seems so long ago, we knew that Jesus is, as He proclaimed, “the Way, the Truth and the Life”, and that Mary is the Gate which leads to Him.

Can we find that Gate again?

On our page, “The Message of Fatima”, we quoted Sister Lucia:

“God always, before He is about to chastise the world, exhausts all other remedies. Now, when He sees that the world pays no attention whatsoever, then as we say in our imperfect manner of speaking, He offers us with certain fear the last means of salvation, His Most Holy Mother. It is with certain fear because if you despise and repulse this ultimate means, we will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven, because we will have committed a sin which the Gospel calls the sin against the Holy Ghost. This sin consists of openly rejecting, with full knowledge and consent, the salvation which He offers.”

It should be fairly obvious by now, after 102 years of disobedience culminating in the horrendous scandal of what some have called the Pachamama Synod, that we have entered into the state of “openly rejecting with full knowledge and consent, the salvation which has been offered us” by our Eternal Father’s providence.

In the recent Synod, a “goddess of fertility” was paid homage with the approval of Pope Francis. This was another deceit, as fruitfulness comes from God alone. The fruitfulness of that idol is that of satan, bringing with it plague, death of bodies and souls, and sterility.

“Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.” 

Only by reparation offered through the Immaculate Heart of Mary will this be remedied. Sin abounds to such an extent that only her pure heart can protect us from satan’s power. Without the Mediatrix of Grace we shall only bumble and fail, drawing upon us even worse destruction.

Who will lead us out of the crisis? It will not be anyone who is not an Apostle of the Immaculata. As Our Lord Himself has said, “It has been given to her.” But grace has fled. Even faithful Catholics no longer understand that the most perfect purity of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is our protection, and without her, in this reign of darkness, there can be no sufficient light to discern the true path. Those who are not totally consecrated to Our Lord Jesus Christ, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be unable to discern the true path forward. They will be misled and they will cause others to be misled. They will follow the Kings of France into destruction.

I’m sorry to have no more to offer. It is clear now why Sister Lucia appeared so sad. They will not listen. Well then, read Jeremias and weep.Few today grasp the calamity of God’s wrath on an unfaithful people.

The worst calamity of all is to have to live under the reign of those totally devoted to the ancient enemy. If God allows this, and this is most likely, you will be unable to pray, you will have hell on earth

And yet we have a most merciful Mother, who weeps for her children, and begs them to allow her to help. Yet, they will not listen. How long has our dear Lord awaited our devotion to His Sacred Heart? How long will He wait while His Mother’s loving heart is spurned?

And yet, they still will not listen.

Perhaps another can express this better. And then, perhaps they might listen.

And so I will hush for now.

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.

  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.

The Eucharistic Vision of Our Lady of Knock

The Eucharistic Vision of Our Lady of Knock

WARNING AGAINST SUPPRESSION OF THE HOLY SACRIFICE

Today, we commemorate the eloquently silent apparition of Our Lady at Knock, Ireland, August 21, 1879. By her silence, Our Lady emphasised at once her displeasure that her message at La Salette was being attacked, and as many believe, she was pointing to the silence recounted in chapter 8 of the Apocalypse.  But there is still another reason for the silence – it is a warning against silencing the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and outrages against the Holy Eucharist and it beckons us with mysterious silence towards the visions of the Apocalypse.

The Holy Ghost inspired St. John’s vision in such a way that through it, God revealed to us a glimpse of His own vision, not a linear accounting of events, and each subsequent generation could learn from its warnings and be comforted in its victories. In addition to sacred scripture, Our Heavenly Father guides us by the revelations He grants us down the centuries. Knock is one of the major apparitions, which are: Our Lady of Good Success in Ecuador, The Sacred Heart of Jesus at Paray le Monial, France, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception at Rue du Bac, France, Our Lady of La Salette, France, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Lourdes, France, Our Lady at Knock, Ireland, Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, Portugal,  and Our Lady of Akita, Japan.  Those apparitions provide a necessary complement to our understanding of the Apocalypse.

Although the revelations contained in the Apocalypse may be fruitfully applied to each generation, the various major apparitions help to draw us into St. John’s mystical scenario as appropriate for our own time. In 17th century Ecuador, Our Lady of Good Success gave us prophecies which remained largely silent until the 20th century, for which they were intended. Our Lord’s tender pleas to St. Margaret Mary, also in the 17th century, contained both promises of blessings for obedience and warnings of danger for disobedience to His requests to honor His Sacred Heart publicly. This message was dishonored by the Jesuits to whom it was entrusted and betrayed by the French monarchs to their own destruction and that of France, but we were only able to grasp this in hindsight, as was the case with the Quito revelations, centuries later, as the apocalyptic visions  unfolded. We must not forget however, that the demands of Our Lord for devotion to His Sacred Heart have never been rescinded and no amount of devotion to false revelations will satisfy the command for true devotion to the image of His Most Sacred Heart.

Our Lady then intervened offering mercies to her children through devotion to her Immaculate Conception, that is through the Miraculous Medal and the miraculous spring at Lourdes. Both of those apparitions carried both warnings and blessings. Between these two, Rue du Bac and Lourdes, came Our Lady’s sad visit to La Salette wherein she warned of the increasing incursion of the ancient enemy, “Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist.” As proof of the strength which the enemy had gained in the Church, this message was opposed and silenced. To this day, Melanie Calvat’s legacy is obscured by the thick fabric of false accusations against her.

The mystical vision of Knock is essential to our understanding of the mystical vision given to  Sister Lucia at Tuy fifty years later; and through it, we are able to understand the pertinent passages of the Apocalypse for today.

“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven,
as it were for half an hour.” (Apoc. 8, 1)

This verse appears to be indicated by the silence of Knock. But the mystical visions of the Apocalypse are much deeper and the vision of Knock also must be seen in relation to the earlier chapter 5, as we shall show.

First, we look at  Apocalypse 5, especially verse 5.

From The Apocalypse of St. John:

[1] And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne, a book written within and without, sealed with seven seals. [2] And I saw a strong angel, proclaiming with a loud voice: Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? [3] And no man was able, neither in heaven, nor on earth, nor under the earth, to open the book, nor to look on it. [4] And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open the book, nor to see it. [5] And one of the ancients said to me: Weep not; behold the lion of the tribe of Juda, the root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

[6] And I saw: and behold in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the ancients, a Lamb standing as it were slain, having seven horns and seven eyes: which are the seven Spirits of God, sent forth into all the earth. [7] And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him that sat on the throne. [8] And when He had opened the book, the four living creatures, and the four and twenty ancients fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints: [9] And they sung a new canticle, saying: Thou art worthy, O Lord, to take the book, and to open the seals thereof; because Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God, in Thy blood, out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation. [10] And hast made us to our God a kingdom and priests, and we shall reign on the earth.

[11] And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne, and the living creatures, and the ancients; and the number of them was thousands of thousands, [12] Saying with a loud voice: The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power, and divinity, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and benediction.” (Apocalypse 5, 5)

Commentary:

We here rely on The Book of Destiny. Fr. Kramer points out that St. John uses a different word for Lamb in the Apocalypse than the word Lamb used in the Old Testament and in the Gospels. I cannot reproduce the Greek word here, but Father shows that it indicates “Little Lamb” rather than “Lamb”, and he interprets that as meaning that it refers to Jesus in the Sacred Host, the Eucharistic Presence sanctifying Catholic tabernacles throughout the world. What Blessed Jacinta and Francisco referred to as, “the Hidden Jesus”.

“The word translated is “the Little Lamb” and is used 29 times in 12 chapters. This is very significant. It appears to be intentionally used to attach a totally different meaning to the title “lamb” in the Apocalypse than in the Old Testament or elsewhere in the New.”

Father Kramer then shows that verse 5 by referring to the “root of David” is pointing to Isaias 11, which foreshadows the Eucharist by which Christ reigns in every Catholic tabernacle in the world.

[1] And there shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse, and a flower shall rise up out of his root. [2] And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him: the spirit of wisdom, and of understanding, the spirit of counsel, and of fortitude, the spirit of knowledge, and of godliness. [3] And He shall be filled with the spirit of the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge according to the sight of the eyes, nor reprove according to the hearing of the ears. [4] But He shall judge the poor with justice, and shall reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. [5] And justice shall be the girdle of His loins: and faith the girdle of His reins. (Isaias 11, 1-5)

You may recognise verses 1 and 2; they are used by the Church at Christmastide and are especially familiar to those of us who recite Our Lady’s Little Office.

The Holy Eucharist makes every church a temple and every tabernacle a throne of God. Thus, the vision of Knock points us to Apocalypse, Chapter 5, v. 5, which in turn points us to Isaias 11, 1-5, all of which emphasize the importance of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Eucharistic Reign of Jesus, symbolized for us by devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Prisoner of Love in the Eucharist.

From Father Kramer:

“The temple of Christ is every Catholic Church, where He dwells in the Eucharistic Mystery. The Sacrifice of the Mass is the sacred mystery, in which Christ is “as if sacrificed”, is truly and mystically slain or immolated. The sacrifice is inseparably united with the bloody sacrifice of the Cross, because it represents and renews it. Through the Sacrifice of the Mass, Christ becomes present, establishes His throne in the Church and extends the effects of His death on the Cross and carries the purposes of God to completion. To outward appearance He is dead in the Eucharist, so there He rests “as if immolated”. But the Holy Eucharist is the throne of God through the inseparable union of Christ with the Father and the Holy Spirit.  …

“The Real Presence of Christ has been …  the standard for the armies of Christ. His soldiers, the martyrs, confessors and virgins have ever fought and bled for the altar and the cross. The prediction of Isaias is fulfilled in Christ’s place of rest, His Eucharistic Presence. The reason then why St. John chose the word, “Little Lamb”, for the sacrificial Lamb of the Apocalypse appears evident, to distinguish this mystery from the mystery of the Incarnation.”  (Kramer, Fr. Herman B., The Book Of Destiny, TAN Books. Kindle Edition)

The silent tableau of Knock took place in inclement weather just outside the Church, thus pointing to the institutional Church forcing the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass outside. The apparition of Knock displayed on a desolate night thus foretold a period in which the post-conciliar Church would attempt to eclipse the true Sacrifice of the Mass with a protestantised fellowship service, to serve ecumenism and the prince of this world.

At Knock,on August 21, 1879,  the Little Lamb on the altar stood with two powerful representatives of the priesthood, St. Joseph, chaste guardian of the Holy Family and Patron of the Church, and St. John the Beloved, to whom Christ entrusted His Mother and to whom the Holy Spirit revealed the mysteries of the Apocalypse. St. John pointed to the Scriptures, begging the question, “To which scriptures?” The vision itself answers:  The Lamb on the altar indicates Apocalypse 5. The two patrons of the priesthood, St. Joseph and St. John, indicate the importance of priests in these times. Our Lady of Knock, in this vision, never took her eyes from heaven, never wavered in her intercession for the Church.

Considered in the context of the other Marian apparitions, Knock is a warning against the silencing of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the sacrilege of the Holy Eucharist, the corruption of the faith. Our Lady’s appearances at La Salette and Knock were followed by the revelation of Fatima. The Angel of Fatima, Michael, the great Archangel warrior who battles Satan gave us a warning about the abuses of the sacrifice of the Mass and desecration of the Eucharist. And now, 100 years later, the onslaught of sacrileges, outrages and indifferences continues.

It is urgent that Catholics understand that Satan is at war with the Little Lamb, our Eucharistic Lord. Unfortunately, most Catholics are indifferent to this battle. But it is real. Satan knows that the Eucharist is Emmanuel, God with us. Although so many Catholics have forgotten this truth, or are indifferent, the devil knows that Christ the King reigns through the Eucharist. And that is why he is striving with all his immense power to extirpate the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, to eliminate the Real Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ on our altars. By their perversion of mercy, in giving the the Body of Christ to unrepentant sinners, modernists debase Our Lord’s sacrament of love and attempt to drive Jesus from His Church.

La Salette, Knock, Fatima, and Akita, all warn us of this time. This is a spiritual battle of never before seen proportions. Although we know Who will win it, we cannot afford to lose any time, for with knowledge comes responsibility. We must live our Consecrations, moment by tedious moment. Just because our lives are ordinary does not mean that they are not very, very precious to Jesus.

Our Lord’s words to Sister Josefa Menendez:

“I so much want souls to understand this! It is not the action itself which is of value; it is the intention with which it is done. … I have many hidden souls who in their humble labors are very useful workers in My vineyard, … My love goes so far that My souls can draw great treasure out of mere nothing. When as soon as they wake they unite themselves to Me and offer their whole day with a burning desire that My Heart may use it for the profit of souls … when with love they perform their duties, hour by hour and moment by moment … how great is the treasure they amass in one day!

“I will reveal My love to them more and more … it is inexhaustible, and how easy it is for a loving soul to let itself be guided by love.” (Sister Josefa Menendez and the Way of Divine Love.)

In these times, Our Lady has given us, through God’s immense, unfathomable mercy for us, a profusion of graces through her holy Rosary. Please pray your Rosary with confidence in our Mother’s providence for us.  Our Lady of Fatima will not fail. In the end, her Immaculate Heart will triumph!

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, be praised, adored and loved with grateful affection in every tabernacle of the world, at every moment, even unto the end of time. Blessed be God forever.

 “Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly, and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the same Son Jesus Christ, present in all the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages and indifferences by which He Himself is offended.  And by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

  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.

 . Our Lady of La Salette, pray for us.
 . Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
 . Our Lady of Knock, pray for us.
 . Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
 . St. Joseph, protect our families, protect our priests.
 . St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Apocalypse Chapters 1-3

We return to the beginning of the Apocalypse to discover a surprise – the letters to the Churches, written millenia ago, provide valuable insight for just these days. Of course, each century of the Church’s history has been able to say that to some extent, but as we read the first three chapters, we do see a rather astonishing array of lessons for the Church in this most troubled time. Our readings are taken today from Apocalypse 1-3, Catholic Bible Online.

When St. John the beloved Apostle set down the words revealed to him in the Apocalypse, he began with:

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to make known to His servants the things which must shortly come to pass: and signified, sending by His angel to His servant John, who hath given testimony to the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, what things soever he hath seen. Blessed is he, that readeth and heareth the words of this prophecy; and keepeth those things which are written in it; for the time is at hand.”

The first thing we notice is the phrase, “must shortly come to pass” which is then repeated for emphasis in the end, “For the time is at hand”. And when was this written? So you see that the timeframe expressed in sacred scripture is vastly different from our timeframe. An instructor once remarked on this timeframe that ours is, “like a mayfly’s”.

Continuing in Chapter 1, we see,

“I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, saying: What thou seest, write in a book, and send to the seven churches which are in Asia, to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamus, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”

Ephesus

In Chapter 2, John reveals the Lord’s message to these churches which represent His message to all Catholic churches in all ages, but with especial relevance for the latter times of the great tribulation. The first church is that of Ephesus, which Christ chides,

“Thou hast left thy first charity. Be mindful therefore from whence thou art fallen: and do penance, and do the first works. Or else I come to thee, and will move thy candlestick out of its place, except thou do penance. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaites, which I also hate.

Note the emphatic way in which, Our Lord asserts the need for hatred of sinful deeds. These letters set the tone for understanding God’s will for us in troubled times. In His message to the Bishop of the Church at Ephesus, Christ warns him – and us – of losing our charity, He urges us to do penance and “to do the first works”, that is, the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.  But the gist of the message may be found in Our Lord’s hatred for the deeds of the Nicolaites and His commendation for the Ephesians for hating these sinful deeds as well.

The Nicolaites were guilty of a casuistry, that is, the use of complex reasoning to justify moral laxity, similar to that of the present pontiff, in that they managed to find a way to laxity in the law. This false tolerance allowed Christians to eat meats sacrificed to idols (that is, allowing participation in satanic rituals) and even allowing that “whoever should have committed fornication might receive peace on the eighth day.” (The Book of Destiny, Fr. H. B. Kramer) Fr. Kramer further notes that early writings indicate that the Nicolaites tactics were akin to the Balaamites and Gnostics. The sin of Balaam was to allow sexual depravity to lure Israelite men into sin and so weaken them.

As we consider this passage, it appears that the error hated by Our Lord is precisely that tolerance of mortal sin that we see vaunted today in the false mercy and false ecumenism of the neo-modernists now in power in the Church. Understood correctly, this message is a warning against the tolerance for sin which has so infected the Church over the past century. The result has been a stupefying indifference towards the most grievous errors and inability to counteract them.

 

Smyrna

The second church addressed is the Church of Smyrna,

“These things saith the First and the Last, who was dead, and is alive: I know thy tribulation and thy poverty, but thou art rich: and thou art blasphemed by them that say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer. Behold, the devil will cast some of you into prison that you may be tried: and you shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful until death: and I will give thee the crown of life.”

This message is a warning of martyrdom and great suffering and a reminder of the even greater reward for those who remain faithful. And it applies to these times most precisely. By the term, “was dead and is alive”, it also counteracts the modernist heresy condemned by Pope St. Pius X in Pascendi Domenici Gregis, 16,  In #16, St. Pius X condemns the following, “. ..if it be objected that in the visible world there are some things which appertain to faith, such as the human life of Christ, the Modernists reply by denying this.”  In Apocalypse 2, 8, Christ asserts that He is, “the First and the Last, who was dead, and is alive”  thus confirming His actual bodily death and actual bodily Resurrection.

The term Synagogue of Satan refers to the enemies of Christ and in these sad times, these enemies are within the very heart of the Church. Jesus encourages us to fear them not. He warns that we shall have tribulation for “ten days”, thus comforting us that this too, shall pass. Fr. Kramer notes that ten is the perfect number of the world, while twelve is the perfect number of God. Thus we understand that the world’s idea of completion is surpassed by God and that what appears a persecution in the eyes of the worldly is in point of fact, an opportunity for greater glory in heaven with God and His saints forever.

The message to Smyrna ends with the emphatic, “He, that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches: He that shall overcome, shall not be hurt by the second death.” In this warning of the coming martyrdom, there is the promise that those who overcome, that is to say, those who give their life for Christ, will not suffer the eternal death of the damned. A salutary rebuttal to the heresies promoted today by the Synagogue of Satan, true enemies of Christ who control the church at present. We shall meet them again in the message to the Church at Philadelphia.

 

Pergamus

The third message is to the church of Pergamus:

“These things, saith He, that hath the sharp two edged sword: I know where thou dwellest, where the seat of Satan is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith. . . . thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling-block before the children of Israel, to eat, and to commit fornication: So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaites.”

Now Pergamus means citadel and Jesus here asserts that this citadel has become the seat of Satan. He commends those in Pergamus, where the seat of Satan is, yet who still hold fast His name and have not denied the faith. By the term “the stumbling-block before the children of Israel, to eat and to commit fornication” we understand the tactic of Balaam who used pagan women to lure the Israelite men into base sensuality, tempting them into feasting on food sacrificed to idols (that refers to participating in Satanic rituals), and into fornication with them.

Now fornication has the dual meaning, referring to heresy and apostasy as well as lust. Additionally, we note Christ’s anger at those whose false mercy allows those grievous sinners to then receive the Blessed Sacrament. By this passage, we may understand the stumbling-blocks placed in the path of the faithful by the new theology of Pope Francis and his crew of modernists, These men use false mercy to condone unrepentant sinners receiving the sacraments unworthily and allow impure unrepentant priests and bishops to continue in office despite their scandalous sins.

He also again warns against the sins of the false doctrines of Balaam and the Nicolaites. This repetition of the injunction against the deeds of the Nicolaites, reinforced with the injunction against the doctrine of Balaam, gives an additional gravity to the warnings against laxity in moral teaching. Jesus Christ closes this message with,

“In like manner do penance: if not, I will come to thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He, that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches: To him that overcometh, I will give the hidden manna, and will give him a white counter, and in the counter, a new name written, which no man knoweth, but he that receiveth it.”

Fr. H. B. Kramer notes here, “Christ will fight the evil-doers with the two-edged sword of His word, which will separate the good from the bad, bring bloodshed and grief and tears of repentance. Those who repent will be saved but will first die in martyrdom. That God is a man of war, appears first in Exodus (XV. 3). If the bishop excommunicates the heretics by enforcing the apostolic decrees, the church will be spared the intervention of Christ and will remain under His protection.

My only comment here is that it appears we today are so unfortunate as to see the alternative, the Bergoglian revolution asserting error and persecuting the faithful. This will hasten the intervention of Christ. The hidden manna is a promise to restore once again the precious gift of the Holy Sacrifice and the Eucharist, the “counter” is the ever-present offer of forgiveness and re-instatement for those who repent, for as Jesus reminded us through Sister Lucia, It is never too late to repent and return to Jesus and Mary.

 

Thyatira

The fourth message, to the Church at Thyatira, Christ says, “These things saith the Son of God, who hath His eyes like to a flame of fire, and His feet like to fine brass.” The reference to His eyes like a flame of fire repeats Chapter 1, verses 14 and 15, wherein, “His eyes were as a flame of fire, and His feet like unto fine brass, as in a burning furnace.” Fr. Kramer notes here that this intimates, “His Omniscience. It alludes to Ezechiel (VIII. 2) and the abominations of idolatry (satanism) secretly practiced in the Temple, where God also appeared to the prophet’s eyes in the likeness of fire. God will penetrate the secret recesses in which Jezabel practices her abominations and will sound the “depths of Satan” (II. 24).”

The term Jezabel may be applied to those impure and effeminate clerics who serve satan and not Christ in the very heart of the Church, the so-called Lavender/St. Gallen Mafia who placed Pope Francis on the throne. Fr. Kramer notes that King Achab permitted a woman named Jezabel to teach her evil heresies in the church and to establish worship of Baal, that is to say, Satan. Once again, we see the injunction against eating meats sacrificed to idols, i.e., to satanic ritual. This triple warning against sins of impurity is ignored at our own peril. Father Kramer warns, “the plague shall strike the spiritual progeny of this new Jezabel. It will be a manifest punishment like the judgments upon the followers of the Beast (XV.), and the attribute of the “eyes like to a flame of fire” will become manifest to all the churches.”

The reference to the depths of Satan” points to the Gnostic sects and is applicable today but we will not discuss it at this time. The message to the Church at Thyatira closes with an especially comforting and prophetic note:

“Hold fast till I come. And he that shall overcome, and keep my works unto the end, I will give him power over the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and as the vessel of a potter they shall be broken, As I also have received of my Father: and I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.”

Note the prophetic reference to the “Rod of iron”.

 

Sardis

Next, we go to Chapter 3 for the message to the Church at Sardis, bearing in mind that this message, as the others, is for all the church at all times but most especially it is for the latter times, when the combat shall be most intense. Our Lord Jesus Christ here says,

“I know thy works, that thou hast the name of being alive: and thou art dead. Be watchful and strengthen the things that remain, which are ready to die. For I find not thy works full before my God. Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe, and do penance. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.”

The Bishop (Angel) to whom this message is addressed has sinned against the Holy Ghost, has cultivated worldly “virtues” of tolerance, expediency and diplomacy, that is, has become a hypocrite tolerant of impurities in doctrine and morals, and diplomatically ignores false teachings and even blasphemies in the name of mercy and ecumenism.  Thus, the Bishop of Sardis is the very template for the  hypocritical, modernist Bishops of Pope Francis’s Reformed Church

 

Philadelphia

The next message is to the Angel (Bishop) of the Church at Philadelphia.

“These things saith the Holy One and the true one, He that hath the key of David; He that openeth, and no man shutteth; shutteth, and no man openeth: I know thy works. Behold, I have given before thee a door opened, which no man can shut: because thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will bring of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie. Behold, I will make them to come and adore before thy feet. And they shall know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon the whole world to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”

This is an encouragement to the faithful Remnant, as prophesied by Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora. If this congregation continues steadfast in the faith, growing more in grace with each passing phase of the persecutions, they will be rewarded by receiving the conversion of not only the Jews but those who have followed the second beast and have now repented. This remnant congregation knows that they are weak and therefore depend totally on Jesus and she whom He sends – the Immaculata.  Thus, to them is given the grace to stand fast in the faith. It would seem that this passage indicates that the institutional church, so long suffering the eclipse of the faith, will return to the faith by acknowledging the community of the faithful remnant.  The conversions of those Prelates who have at last rejected the false doctrines of the faction of Jezabel are the reward for the remnant’s steadfast refusal to compromise with the spirit of the world.

 

Laodicea

The final message is to the Church at Laodicea, which we have mentioned in previous posts.  To this Church, as to us all at this time, He warns,

“These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, who is the beginning of the creation of God: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold, nor hot. I would thou wert cold, or hot. But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.

“Because thou sayest: I am rich, and made wealthy, and have need of nothing: and knowest not, that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. I counsel thee to buy of me gold fire tried, that thou mayest be made rich; and mayest be clothed in white garments, and that the shame of thy nakedness may not appear; and anoint thy eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

“Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance. Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my voice, and open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that shall overcome, I will give to sit with me in my throne: as I also have overcome, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.”

We note the relevance to our sad time under the blight of this pontiff and his wrecking crew, who make an unholy mess of the Temple of God. The lukewarm laity who respond to this time of scandal and crisis by allowing  themselves to drift from the faith instead of joining the great spiritual battle under the banner of the Immaculata – these are the true Laodiceans, and although they may not recognise it, they are the true followers of the St. Gallen Pope, who always leads his followers to the peripheries, away from the true teachings of Christ.

But we might also take heart in the promises offered to us in these first three chapters of the Apocalypse which reveal a restoration of the faith when at last those who have fallen into the error of following the Second Beast repent and return to the true faith, that is the traditional faith of all time, which has been preserved for them by the small and weak remnant represented by the Church at Philadelphia.

 

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

† . 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!

~ 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!

 

Malachi Martin on the Apostasy of the Faith

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.

Years after his death, and despite the vicious campaign to malign his reputation, Father Malachi Martin continues to prove prescient in his diagnosis of the problems afflicting the Church.  Triumph Communications has a series of small books based on interviews Father Martin gave during the course of the last decade of his life. I have been reading several of them and believe them helpful in understanding the urgency of our current situation. Father Martin stressed way back in the 1990’s that we are in a time which is far, far worse than in any previous period of persecution in the Church.

THE MOTHER OF GOD DISOBEYED

Fr. Malachi Martin stated quite firmly that Popes John XXIII, Paul VI and John Paul II all failed to obey Our Lady of Fatima:

“These Popes did not carry out the mandate of the Queen of Heaven. She said, “All you bishops, together on one day, consecrate Russia to me. And Russia will be converted.” If this consecration had been done, Russia would have become Catholic, Marxism would have been finished and there would be no chastisements. But she also said, “If you don’t do this consecration, my Son is going to punish you all.” John XXIII, Paul VI, and John Paul II neglected this warning and command. …”

In explaining why the consecration still had not been done, Martin said that the reason, “goes all the way back to Lucifer. He simply has too much power among the prelates of the Church. He is able to neutralize the people who attempt something.”

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

THE CHURCH IN APOSTASY

In “The Tempter’s Hour”, by Triumph Communications, Father Martin discussed his recently published book, “Windswept House”; affirming that “95% of the events (related in the book) are factual, but they are cloaked in novelistic form.” He stated that the primary theme of the book is, “The Roman Catholic Church …. is in apostasy.” Father went on to discuss the often used, misused and poorly understood terms, schismatic, heretic and apostate. I’ve taken the liberty of summarizing them below:

  • If you are schismatic, it means you fight over the Church’s power or jurisdiction.
  • If you are a heretic, you deny one or more doctrines taught by the Church. If you believe a heresy, it doesn’t mean you completely lost your faith, but it does mean you are very dangerously positioned to lose your faith.
  • But if you are an apostate, you deny basic truths of the Church, such as hell, divine grace, or personal sin, such as in reducing sin to merely social offenses.

Father Martin then stated:

“At the present moment  (1997) a sizable majority of Catholics are in apostasy. They have been led into apostasy by churchmen in apostasy. At least a sizable minority of cardinals, bishops, priests and religious are in apostasy. They no longer profess the basic truths of Christianity, let alone Catholicism.”

Now, nearly a generation later, it is clear that the “sizable minority” of apostate cardinals and bishops has become a majority.

THE DOCTRINES OF THE FAITH IGNORED

He then compared the present situation with the heresies of the Protestant Revolt, noting that that neither Luther nor King Henry VIII denied truths such as heaven, hell, sanctifying grace or divine revelation. Their main error was claiming to be the magisterium.

“Today’s apostasy is worse than the Arian heresy … We are in a terrible situation where churchmen do not believe that Jesus is in the Blessed Sacrament. They don’t even believe that Jesus is God. And they go even further than that. A famous French Jesuit, Teilhard de Chardin, held that God didn’t become man, but that man is going to become God. … Some Cardinals hold that idea. They no longer believe in the Incarnation as we know it or the Resurrection as we know it. They are apostates and yet they are in charge. They are in charge of the Church!”

Father then noted that the majority of Catholics “are being lead by the nose out of the true faith and they don’t even know it. The bishop and his priests often say that it is alright if you are a homosexual, or are divorced and (civilly) re-married and come to the sacraments.” Once again, this was in 1997, and see how appropriate that is in light of the recent Kasperian synod.

The interviewer, Bernard Janzen, remarked that “one of the characteristics of the hierarchy is that they do not openly deny the doctrines and dogmas of the Faith; they simply act as though the doctrines do not exist. Father Martin confirmed that, “They live their lives as if the teachings don’t exist any longer.”

AUTO-DEMOLITION

Father Martin then explained that a sub-theme of Windswept House is that,

“in a short time, humanly speaking, there will be no visible holy Roman Catholic Church organization.” He then repeated, for emphasis, “There won’t be any organization.” Further, “This is referred to as auto-demolition. [See here for more on this.] In the 1960’s there was this diabolical consecration, this enthronement of Satan within the Vatican. … It is a historical fact. … done by Luciferians from all over the world and therefore, in a certain sense, Lucifer has power in Rome. He doesn’t own Rome yet, but I’m sure he hopes to own some future Pope so that the house will be truly his. The only man who can expel Lucifer from Rome is the owner of the house. And that owner is the Pope. It is the Pope that must carry out the exorcism, the cleaning of the house.”

Thus, in 1997 Fr. Martin could say that Lucifer did not yet ‘own the house’ but now that Francis/Danneels has the papacy, who can say . . .

Father Martin then explained that although Father Gabriel Amorth and his team of exorcists are very good, there are limits to what they can do, since authority rests with the owner of the house, that is, the Pope.

Now, in his book, Windswept House, Father Martin states that the Enthronement of Lucifer occurred June 29, 1963 and elsewhere he stated that the follow-up Enthronement must be performed at the Vatican within 50 years of that date, which would have been June 29, 2013, I believe. In other words, shortly after Jorge Bergoglio took over the Vatican, and moved in with his dear friend, Msgr. Ricca.

THE SMOKE OF SATAN

Nine years to the day after that enthronement, that is, on 29 June, 1972 Pope 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.”

In his book, The Kingdom of Darkness, Father Martin describes what is meant by “the smoke of Satan”, describing an interview Pope Paul Vi gave to his close friend, Jean Guitton not long before he died. When Guitton asked the Pope about his often-quoted remark regarding the smoke of Satan, Paul VI replied,

“Yes, the smoke of Satan is in the sanctuary. Due to the presence of Satan, Catholics are destined to become an infinitesimally small part of humanity.”

Father Martin continued,

“We must remember this. A new assault has been launched. The assault is very simple. The temptation is: ‘Just be like the rest of men. Adore a general god. Be good. Be compassionate. Be humanitarian. Join the rest of humanity in building man’s earthly world’ “.

“In Rome, there is a force which at the present moment is immovable. It cannot be dislodged by ordinary human means. This is where, again, one’s faith in Our Lady of Fatima comes in because she said that only she can save the Church because that is what her Son has willed. It is not so because it was her own choice, but because it what Christ has chosen. Christ chose that His Mother should be the one to come and finally save the Church. If you read carefully what Our Lady told Sister Lucia, you get a strong message that things are going bad. Many of the elect will lose their faith.”

One more quote:

“The Luciferians have a very tight schedule. They have an inner Luciferian prophecy that says that unless the prince is properly installed in the citadel, namely in the Vatican, they have lost. Now in order to install the prince and complete the enthronement, they have to get rid of this Pope.”

Note that Martin said this in 1997. So you can see how impatient the Danneels/Kasper faction must have been when not only did Pope John Paul II hang on, but then Benedict got in and did what he could to resist them, namely issue his Moto Proprio for the perpetuation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Thus, they had to force Benedict to resign.

“AN INFINITESIMALLY SMALL PART OF HUMANITY”

In the same interview, Janzen asked Father Malachi Martin if it was possible for the Cardinals to elect a heretical Pope, Father Martin responded,

“Yes, we could have an apostate as Pope. In that case, we would be into something terrible. We would be into something which is nightmarish. It would test the faith of the greatest saint. … Your faith would be battered to pieces. If that happens, they (The Kingdom of Darkness) would have the prize and everything would have to go underground. We are, indeed, Bernard on our way to becoming, as Paul VI described in his misery, an infinitesimally small part of humanity. “

And so, we are here today, in this post-synodal church. Remember Father Amorth’s warning: unless the Pope and Bishops consecrate Russia as requested by the end of October, the Chastisement will occur soon after. Now, also remember that the Chastisement has been unfolding for years now, although faithless and lukewarm Catholics were unaware. The initial Chastisement was the withdrawal of grace from the Popes, hierarchy and priests which occurred as a result of the Popes’ refusal to obey the Blessed Virgin Mary’s Message of Fatima. Unfortunately, that falling away from the faith was not perceived as the horrendous Chastisement that it was, because so many Catholics had lost their sense of the faith and were no longer shocked by the corruption of doctrine and practice or even the perversions that began  to be so prevalent among the clergy.

Therefore, since the vast majority of Catholics do not respond to the Chastisement of the faith, nor now, even the open and outright apostasy of the faith in this post-synodal Church of Mercy®, the “New Church” instituted by Pope Francis, God will most likely begin the final stages of the Chastisement. This will be the Chastisement of the material world, with immense suffering and in which the few survivors will envy the dead.

But it will take most men by surprise because, since they refuse to follow the command of Our Lady for penance and prayer, their intellects and spirits are darkened. Caught up in worldly affairs and intellectual curiosity, they ignore their Mother’s call to the Rosary, First Saturdays of Reparation and Total Consecration.

In previous postings, we have attempted to show a few of the prophecies of this. But we all know that what is necessary for this time is to hold fast to Our Blessed Mother, maintain a contrite and generous sacrificial heart and above all, trust in His merciful love. We must pray for others, especially priests at this time!

in the aftermath of the synod, the Pope and his backers, the “St. Gallen Mafia” will proceed with the dismantling of the hierarchical Church through “decentralization” and the corruption of marriage, penance and the Holy Eucharist. As October and November pass and the faithful do not see immediate evidence of “fire from heaven” or entire countries vanishing, their itching ears will continue to distract them from the hard and humbling work of prayer and penance. Meanwhile, the forces calling forth the Chastisement will continue to build. And when many are unaware, the long-awaited final Chastisement will sweep across the world.

CHASTISEMENT AND PURIFICATION

At the present time, the scene is being set for a war, with suffering far worse than any ever before seen on earth. In its aftermath, the Church will be almost totally annihilated. This has been the goal of the modernists in the Church for many generations now, but they will be destroyed and the Church will survive.  God will once again demonstrate that He is Lord of heaven and earth and by His command the forces of nature will respond to eradicate the usurpers and purify the earth, to make way for the restoration of the faith. This will be the brief age of peace before the coming of the anti-Christ.

Each of us has to prayerfully decide what path to take. My own decision has cost me nearly all I hold dear. Pray for the Church, pray especially for our priests and hierarchy.

There has never been a better time to  Pray the Rosary with confidence and joy!

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.

†  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!

The Prophecy of Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora

“Behold, my daughter, such great ungodliness.”

Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora  offers us today an encouraging prophecy for these times. Born in Rome in 1774, she died in 1825 in the odor of sanctity. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II and her feast day is February 5.   Her writings received ecclesiastical approbation in 1990 and she was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1994.

My favorite quote from Blessed Elizabeth is “God has entrusted to everyone the responsibility of the salvation of others in order to carry out His project of love”.  The following excerpts of prophecies of Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora fit well with the Fatima prophecies and with La Salette.

“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: The image here is of an extreme insult against the Mother of God and the person of the Savior. Keep this poignant image in your heart as you witness the depths of destruction wreaked on the faith in the coming months. Those who intend to defy Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself by ignoring His commands regarding marriage and the Holy Sacraments and then, as with the Pontiff’s recent Moto Proprios doing this evil in the name of the Mother of God, those men force God’s hand, they beg Divine retribution.

Venerable Elizabeth Canori Mora was a great saint and does not need falsely attributed miracles to supplement her many good and true miracles. She is especially helpful as an intercessor for troubled families!

The prophetic Vision of Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora

“On the Feast of St. Peter, 29th of June, 1820, whilst I was praying,” … Blessed Elizabeth says, “for the wants of the Church and the conversion of sinners, amongst whom I am the first, I was ravished in spirit, and drawn very near to God. Through an infinite light I was so intimately united to Him that I lost all sentiments of myself. The sweet impressions of the love of God replenished me with an inexpressible joy and satisfaction. My soul, however, remained calm in these tokens of Divine kindness.

“Then it seemed to me to behold the heavens opening, and St. Peter, prince of the Apostles, coming down, surrounded with great glory and by a numerous escort of heavenly spirits, singing canticles. St. Peter was dressed in his pontifical robes and held in his right hand the pastoral staff, with which he used to draw upon the Earth an immense cross; at the same time the angels sang these words of the Psalmist, Constitues eos principes super omnem terram— you will constitute them princes over the whole Earth.

“After this, the holy Apostle touched with his staff the four extremities of the cross, from which sprung up four beautiful trees loaded with blossoms and fruits. These mysterious trees had the form of a cross, and were surrounded by a splendid light. Then I comprehended in the depth of my soul that St. Peter had produced these four symbolic trees to the end that they may serve as a place of refuge to the little flocks of the faithful friends of Jesus Christ, and in order to preserve them from the fearful punishment which shall convulse the whole Earth. All good Christians shall then be protected under these trees, together with all those religious persons who shall have faithfully preserved in their hearts the spirit of their order.

This refers to the traditional orders which have preserved the true Mass and doctrine of the Faith and their communities, which constitute the Remnant.

“I say the same thing in relation to the secular clergy and to all other persons of every class who shall have kept in their heart the Catholic faith— they shall all be protected. But woe to those religious who do not observe their rule! Thrice unhappy they, for they shall all be struck by that terrible punishment. I say the same to all secular clergy, and to all classes of people in the world who give themselves to a life of pleasure, and who follow the false maxims of modern ideas, which are opposed to the holy precepts of the Gospel. These wretched people, who through their scandalous conduct deny the faith of Jesus Christ, shall perish under the weight of the indignant arm of God’s justice. Not one of them shall be able to escape the punishment.

“I beheld those good Christians, who had sought a refuge under those mysterious trees, in the form of beautiful lambs confided to the care and vigilance of St. Peter, their good shepherd, testifying to him the most humble and most respectful obedience. [Refers to the humble obedience of the remnant to the perennial, unchanging truths of the faith, rather than the ever-changing modernism of the post-conciliarists]. As soon as St. Peter, the prince of the Apostles, had gathered the flock of Jesus in a place of safety, he re-ascended into Heaven, accompanied by legions of angels. Scarcely had they disappeared, when the sky was covered with clouds so dense and dismal that it was impossible to look at them without dismay. On a sudden there burst out such a terrible and violent wind, that its noise seemed like the roars of furious lions. The sound of the dreadful hurricane was heard over the whole Earth. Fear and terror struck not only men, but the very beasts. [Refers to the darkness and confusion besetting the Church since the usurpation of the papacy by the Bergoglio/Kasper/Danneels faction].

“All men shall rise one against the other, and they shall kill one another without pity. During this sanguinary [bloody] conflict, the avenging arm of God will strike the wicked, and in His mighty power He will punish their pride and presumption. God will employ the powers of Hell for the extermination of these impious and heretical persons who desire to overthrow the Church and destroy it to its very foundation. These presumptuous men in their mad impiety believe they can overthrow God from His throne; but the Lord will despise their artifices, and through an effect of His almighty hand He will punish these impious blasphemers by giving permission to the infernal spirits to come out from Hell. Innumerable legions of demons shall overrun the Earth, and shall execute the orders of Divine Justice, by causing terrible calamities and disasters; they shall attack everything; they shall injure individual persons and entire families; they shall devastate property and alimentary (food) productions, cities and villages. Nothing on Earth shall be sparedGod will allow the demons to strike with death those impious men, because they gave themselves up to the infernal powers, and had formed with them a compact against the Catholic Church. [We are currently beginning this time. It may start in earnest when the Synod officially institutes the irreversible changes pushed by the Bishop of Rome and Cardinals Marx and Kasper]

“Being desirous of more fully penetrating my spirit with a deeper sentiment of His divine justice, God showed to me the awful abyss; I saw in the bowels of the Earth a dark and frightful cavern, whence an infinite number of demons were issuing forth, who under the form of men and beasts came to ravage the world, leaving everywhere ruins and blood. Happy will be all true and good Catholics! They shall experience the powerful protection of the holy Apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul, who will watch over them lest they may be injured either in their persons or their property. Those evil spirits shall plunder every place where God has been outraged, despised, and blasphemed; the edifices they profaned will be pulled down and destroyed, and nothing but ruins shall remain of them.

“After this frightful punishment, I saw the heavens opening, and St. Peter coming down again, upon Earth; he was vested in his pontifical robes, and surrounded by a great number of angels, who were chanting hymns in his honor, and they proclaimed him as sovereign of the Earth. I saw also St. Paul descending upon the Earth. By God’s command, he traversed the Earth and unchained the demons, whom he brought before St. Peter, who commanded them to return into Hell, whence they had come.

“Then a great light appeared upon the Earth, which was the sign of the reconciliation of God with man. The angels conducted before the throne of the prince of the Apostles the small flock that had remained faithful to Jesus Christ.These good and zealous Christians testified to him the most profound respect, praising God and thanking the Apostles for having delivered them from the common destruction, and for having protected the Church of Jesus Christ by not permitting her to be infected with the false maxims of the world. St. Peter then chose the new pope. The Church was again organized; religious orders were re-established; the private families of ordinary Christians, through their great fervor and zeal for the glory of God, became like the most exemplary religious communities. Such is the glorious triumph reserved for the Catholic Church; she shall be praised, honored, and esteemed by all men. All men shall become Catholics, and shall acknowledge the Pope as Vicar of Jesus Christ. Amen.” [Note the similarity with Sister Lucia’s vision,‘In time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. In eternity, Heaven!’]

In just a few days, Pope Francis will come to the United States. He will participate in the World Meeting of Families, which was established by John Paul II but has since become a tool of the anti-Christ. Its president has supported Planned Parenthood and pro-abortion candidates and impure practices of all kinds. These things have no place in a Catholic gathering, especially in a gathering supposedly devoted to promoting the family. After devoting his full support to such an abomination and scandal to the faith, the Pope will cap off his visit with yet another sacrilegious Papal Mass in a large field. Thousands of hosts have been prepared for this massive desecration, where the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ will be dispensed to any and all comers, without regard to the status of their faith, passed around and trampled under foot. Then, it will be on to New York to speak at the headquarters of the Lord of this World, enforcing their anti-Catholic agenda of “reproductive health”, in the service of the Universal Church of Man. All this is in preparation for October’s final Synod, which will attempt to institutionalize the destructive Bergoglio/Kasper agenda against the family and against the Holy Eucharist.

BE WARNED

To those who read this, You are being  given a warning. If you ignore this, and choose not to stand firm in the faith, take care lest you become a casualty in this spiritual battle which is gathering momentum.

NOTE: 9-19-2020: There is a persistent error online, repeated from blog to blog, that Venerable Elizabeth Canori Mora miraculously cured Count Mastai-Ferretti who became Pope Pius IX. She did not in fact do this but was instead the cause of the miraculous healing of Pope Pius VII. The account of that healing may be found in the book, “The Life of Venerable Elizabeth Canori Mora”, Chapter XV, translated by Lady Herbert and published in 1878 with ecclesiastical approval. The miraculous cure of the young man, Count Mastai-Ferretti who later became Pope Pius IX occurred through the intervention of Pope Pius VII who urged Count Mastai-Ferretti to go to Our Lady’s shrine in Loreto, where he was cured by devotion to her. His epilepsy was a gift from God to draw him to reliance on the most Blessed Virgin Mary.

 

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.

†  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, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
†  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Sister Josefa Menendez and the Way of Divine Love

Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is an essential part of the message of Fatima, and this devotion is inseparable from devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus;  these two hearts are one. Just a few years after Our Lady of the Rosary’s apparitions at Fatima, Our Lord Himself began appearing to Sister Josefa Menendez in the Convent of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart in Poitiers, France from 1920 through 1923 when she died. Sister Josefa’s compilation of these visits is a very beneficial addition to our spiritual arsenal.

Sister Josefa’s book, “The Way of Divine Love”   has an endorsement by Pope Pius XII. Here is a good excerpt from it, although almost any page would have yielded a similar result, it is that packed with beautiful inspirations! From pages 213-215:

“Write for My souls…The soul who constantly unites her life with Mine glorifies Me and does a great work for souls. Thus, if engaged on work of no value in itself…if she bathes it in My Blood or unites it to the work I myself did during My mortal life, it will greatly benefit souls … more perhaps, than if she had preached to the whole world … and that, whether she studies, speaks or writes … whether she sews, sweeps or rests … provided first that the act is sanctioned by obedience or duty and not done from mere caprice; and secondly that it is done in intimate union with Me, with great purity of intention and covered with My Blood.

“I so much want souls to understand this! It is not the action itself which is of value; it is the intention with which it is done. … I have many hidden souls who in their humble labors are very useful workers in My vineyard, for they are moved by love, and they know how to cover their deeds with supernatural gold by bathing them in My Blood. My love goes so far that My souls can draw great treasure out of mere nothing. When as soon as they wake they unite themselves to Me and offer their whole day with a burning desire that My Heart may use it for the profit of souls … when with love they perform their duties, hour by hour and moment by moment … how great is the treasure they amass in one day!

“I will reveal My love to them more and more … it is inexhaustible, and how easy it is for a loving soul to let itself be guided by love.”

The following day, Our Lord told Sister Josefa:

“I would like them to know how much I desire their perfection, and that it consists in doing their ordinary actions in intimate union with Me. If they once grasped this, they could divinize their life and all their activities by this close union with My Heart … and how great is the value of a divinized day! … When a soul is burnt up with desire to love, nothing is a burden to her, but if she feels cold and spiritless everything becomes hard and difficult … let her then come to My Heart to revive her courage … Let her offer Me her dejection and unite it to My fervor; then she may rest content, for her day will be of incomparable value to souls. All human miseries are known to My Heart, and My compassion for them is great. …

“But I desire souls to unite themselves to Me not only in a general way. I long for this union to be constant and intimate as it is between friends who live together, for even if they are not talking all the time, at least they look at each other, and their mutual affectionate little kindnesses are the fruit of their love.

“… But if she (soul) is in the throes of desolation and anguish, she need not fear. I am content with a glance, I understand and this mere look will draw down on her special proofs of My tenderness. I will repeat again to souls how My Heart loves them for I want them to know Me thoroughly that they may make me known to those I place in their care.

“I ardently desire My chosen souls to fix their eyes on Me and never turn them away .. and among them there should be no mediocrity, which usually is the result of a misunderstanding of My love. No! It is neither difficult nor hard to love My Heart, but on the contrary, it is sweet and easy. They need do nothing extraordinary to attain a high degree of love: purity of intention, be the action great or small … intimate union with My Heart and love will do the rest.”

Once I discovered, by God’s grace, Our Lady of Fatima’s true message, I struggled mightily with the task of offering my daily duties as reparation, but quickly became discouraged due to my easily distracted nature. And then, once again by praying to Sister Lucia to help me, I discovered Sister Josefa’s marvelously simple “Way of Divine Love” and it has profited me immensely! I wish I could express to you how valuable this book is and hope that by reading the above excerpt you will be inclined to obtain a copy. It is also available as a Kindle download. Both versions are reasonably priced.

Now here is a neat coincidence: Sister Josefa was Spanish and her sister Angela entered the Carmel of Coimbra and I have read that she was Mistress of Novices when Sister Lucia entered the Carmel! Wouldn’t you love to have been able to be a “fly on the wall” at their meetings!

The message of The Way of Divine Love  is balanced between its sacrificial nature and the peace and joy of total oblation to the will of God; the diabolical attacks, the descents into Hell itself, the great suffering, but also the peace and joy that came from total oblation to the will of God, total union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Thus, Sister Josefa’s messages comply perfectly with Sister Lucia’s. And isn’t that what we all want – to progress towards total Consecration, total oblation of ourselves to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary!

We are now going through such challenging times and I believe that Pope Francis has yet more misery in store for us in his “Year of Mercy”; but we have been given such tremendous blessings! We know that the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will sustain us and our loved ones and that they have provided us with a safe passage through the chaos and the shortest path to union with them.

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.

†  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, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
†  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
