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,

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!

The Centenary of Fatima and the Passion of the Church

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,

  1. A material chastisement
  2. A spiritual chastisement
  3. The action of Russia in both chastisements.

Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité  also believed that Russia was the key player in both the physical and spiritual events of the chastisement. Additionally,  Frère Michel stressed that the physical chastisements began with the Second World War and since Russia has not been consecrated properly – and thus cannot be exorcised of Satanic control – the ongoing war will only continue, eventually enveloping the entire world with one horrific conflagration of intense terror. The force behind this will of course, be Russia, or more precisely, satanic marxism.

NOTE: Marxism is now at the highest levels, in fact, the highest level ever, of the Church.

Satanic marxism is also behind the spiritual chastisement which continues apace until the Church is eventually reduced to a very small  and seemingly impotent remnant. There should be little doubt that Pope Francis is a satanic marxist and is the Pope that Father Malachi Martin alluded to as the last pope of this era and who would be under the control of Satan. It has been said before that the Age of Apostasy began with Martin Luther and will end with Luther’s own Pope. That would appear to be Francis.  St. Hildegard has told us what to expect of this pope and Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora has also warned us of what is to come.

In a previous post we quoted Antonio Socci’s account of Pope Benedict’s revelation at Fatima in 2010:

But a resounding explicit confirmation came from Benedict XVI himself, who, during an unexpected pilgrimage to Fatima on May 13, 2010, affirmed: “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.”

But could such prophecies be found in that text [of the vision]?

These two phrases of the Pope in that discourse at Fatima prompt reflection:

“Man has the power to unleash a cycle of death and terror, but he is not able to stop it.” And then: “The faith in vast regions of the earth risks being extinguished, like a flame without fuel.”

From these words of Pope Benedict one discerns, therefore, that there is truly something else in the Third Secret and that it is dramatic for the world and the Church. The volume in fact draws from the letters of Sister Lucia and from the unpublished diary “My Way.” Impressive among things previously unpublished, is the account of how Sister Lucy overcame the terror that prevented her from writing down the Third Secret.

The Unpublished Account

At around 4 p.m. on January 3, 1944, in the chapel of the convent, before the Tabernacle, Lucia asked Jesus to make known His will: “I then felt a friendly hand, maternal and affectionate, touch my shoulder.”

And the Mother of God said to her: “be at peace, and write what I have commanded you, but not, however, that which has been given to you to understand its meaning,” intending to allude to the meaning of the vision which the Virgin herself had revealed.

Immediately afterward, said Sister Lucia, “I felt my spirit inundated by a mystery of light that is God and in Him I saw and heard: the point of a lance like a flame that is detached, touches the axis of the earth, and it trembles: mountains, cities, towns and villages with their inhabitants are buried. The sea, the rivers, the clouds, exceed their boundaries, inundating and dragging with them, in a vortex, houses and people in a number that cannot be counted. It is the purification of the world from the sin in which it is immersed. Hatred, ambition, provoke the destructive war.

After I felt my racing heart, in my spirit a soft voice said: ‘In time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. In eternity, Heaven!’ This word ‘Heaven’ filled my heart with peace and happiness in such a way that, almost without being aware of it, I kept repeating to myself for a long time: Heaven, Heaven.” (Antonio Socci)

From this came the strength to write the Third Secret. …

In the conclusion of his article, Socci noted that the Blessed Virgin promised us at Fatima that, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” And then he adds,

“To this hoped for “triumph” Pope Benedict made reference in 2010:

“May the seven years which separate us from the centenary of the Apparitions (2017) hasten the prophesied triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the glory of the Most Holy Trinity.”

Readers, we are now reaching the centenary of Our Lady of the Rosary’s public apparitions at Fatima in 1917. And this current Bishop of Rome intends to place the centenary of Fatima alongside his much vaunted celebration of the 500th anniversary of the arch heretic Martin Luther’s revolt against our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. How can this be? How can the man who presents himself to the world as the very Vicar of Christ on earth honor the man who so hated Our Lord and His Church that he led the greatest rebellion the Church has ever seen, seeking to sever as many souls as possible from the living faith, personally responsible for the damnation of billions of souls and the ongoing dissolution of Christendom. How can this be?

It seems likely that Pope Leo XIII’s prophecy about Satan being set loose for 100 years may have begun about the time of the warnings of the Mother of God at Fatima in 1917. It is possible that within this time-frame, the evil was turned loose and the Church was given a period of grace in which to obey the warnings of the Blessed Virgin Mary. But although the Church did some things, it never obediently gave the response asked for by the Virgin.

The First Saturdays of Reparation Our Lady asked for were never promoted by the hierarchy; neither has there ever been an effort from the Pope or Bishops to proclaim a year of penance in reparation and obedience.

NOTE for 11-2020: The above actions are not negotiable – there will be NO successful effort without them. The dismal failure of the current efforts of the elite leaders of the traditional Catholic movement to resolve our spiritual combat through political means should convince the faithful that until the Blessed Virgin Mary’s request is honored, their best efforts are in vain. Indeed, instead of solving problems, they will engender much worse ones, driving more souls to destruction.

Instead of obeying, the Vatican silenced Sister Lucia and in 1960 the rejection of Fatima was completed by  Pope John XXIII which is why Sister Lucia foretold that, “It will be clearer then.”

Ever since Pope John XXIII’s  fateful decision to disobey the Mother of Jesus,  we have been being chastised in earnest, both by wars and by spiritual disaster in the Church. What could be worse that the loss of millions of souls through the ongoing apostasy of the Faith? The genocide of Christians, the slaughter of innocents through abortion, the continuous drums of war, all this is a huge and rapidly accelerating chastisement which will soon be joined by the very forces of nature causing the obliteration of entire nations.

To return to Father Malachi Martin. He affirmed on several occasions that the evil set loose would ascend to the very top echelon of the institutional Church and he also stated clearly that the culmination of the chastisement would not come without warning but that only those who are “renewed in heart” (that is to say, the true children of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) will take note of it. Another important point to note is that contrary to other prophecies, Father Martin denied that a comet was foretold in the third secret. If we add to that clue other indications by Father Martin ‘that the catastrophes of the chastisement will not be from God nor nature, we must conclude that the only forces left are human and perhaps humans driven by, obsessed by, demonic forces. Thus we return to Pope Benedict’s dire warning,

“Man has the power to unleash a cycle of death and terror, but he is not able to stop it.”

[Note: The above quote indicates that God will allow men who are  under the control of Satan to trigger forces of nature that mankind will be then unable to control. Father Martin also 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.” I note once more that Father Martin never ceased to stress the importance of Russia’s actions in all this.

THE CONFUSION OF MINDS

The confusion of minds is something we are beginning to see more and more,  This will be an extremely 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 of minds 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.

Reader, do not be misled, even though some Catholic writers hint that perhaps “the chastisement may be easing”. The devil has not even approached the fullness of the reign he has been allotted! You have no idea of how strong his power will be once the grace of the Mass and sacraments is withdrawn, and it will be. It will truly be hell on earth, and without God’s grace, souls will be powerless, because they did not avail themselves of God’s grace in the period of time so generously given to them.

Now is the time to repent, but instead, many of the best minds of Catholic tradition today are busily misleading the faithful, focusing on political and social issues.  But Our Lady has revealed already all we need to know. If we would become as a child, her child! – and simply follow her simple requests; We do not need to worry who is the Bishop in white, do not need to know the exact date of the chastisement.

We cannot know the exact date, we cannot know the details. Satan tempts our pride with these things. Do not fall for that trick! Simply pray, and obey. Let the others breathlessly chase after prophets and prophecies or any other diversion they seek. Focus!

If we trust in our Blessed Mother, we focus on her will for us:  to renew our daily sacrifices, the humble silent ones no one knows about save us and God. Offer our sacrifices to our thorn-crowned King through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, united with His suffering in all the holy tabernacles of the world in reparation for this faithless generation which always and everywhere blasphemes, outrages and insults Him, and His Blessed Mother. Especially, we pray for the conversion of poor sinners, particularly the Pope and hierarchy, that they may repent and be saved, through the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Reader, there is no one on earth who can take your place. No one. Only you can fulfill what God asks of you.

The chastisement will increase in terror and destruction until sufficient reparation has been either offered by us – or – extracted from us.  Which will it be?

Please continue to pray the Rosary daily for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary over the agenda of this unholiest of Holy Fathers.

May God have mercy on us all. Remember, Pray the Rosary and confound the devil and those who serve him!

For St. Hildegard’s prophecy: “The Figure of a Woman, anticipating 2017”.

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 Seven Trumpets, 2019

The following post is from back in 2013, right after our humble pontiff moved into the Santa Marta with his dear friends Msgr. Ricca and his “spiritual son” Gustavo Zanchetta. We repost from time to time for those just coming on board.

“And the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it on the earth, and there were thunders and voices and lightnings, and a great earthquake. And the seven angels, who had the seven trumpets, prepared themselves to sound the trumpet.” (Apoc. 8)

As requested, we will be looking at the Church in the light of the Message of Fatima and the Apocalypse. Sister Lucia is reported to have remarked when asked about the Third Secret that it was to be found in the Apocalypse, especially Chapters 8-13; that is to say, beginning with the Seven Trumpets.

Prior to her appearances at Fatima in 1917, Our Lady appeared at Quito, La Salette, Knock and (after Fatima) at Akita, all of which had a common thread of dire warning. Even though the apparition at Knock was silent, its prophetic relevance is clear from our perspective after 50 years of modernist “renewal”.

 

THE POPE OF THE TRUMPETS

Let’s start with Pope Paul’s Trumpets: In an interview with the Italian newspaper Avvenire, French writer Jean Guitton, a close friend of Pope Paul VI, recalled this interesting bit of history,

“It was the final session of the Council, the most essential in which the Pope was to bestow upon all humanity the teachings of the Council. He announced this to me with these words,‘I am about to blow the Seven Trumpets of the Apocalypse.’ “ (Interview, 11 October, 1992, cited in  “Animus Delendi – I”, by Atila Sinke Guimaraes).

Now, the source of this quote, Avvenire,  is the newspaper of the Italian Episcopal Conference.  Although Guitton seemed to think little of the remark, later mentioning that the Apocalypse speaks of the triumph of the Church, that is not exactly what is referred to in the passage cited by Pope Paul VI. The Angels and Trumpets are introduced in Chapter 8, “And I saw seven angels standing in the presence of God; and there were given to them seven trumpets.”  The Angels  and Trumpets and the events they usher in are  severe chastisements, foretelling in symbolic language widespread heresy, apostasy, violent wars and persecutions, and earthquakes.

Later, 29 June, 1972 on the occasion of the Ninth Anniversary of his election, Paul Paul lamented,

“We believed that after the [Second Vatican] Council would come a day of sunshine in the history of the Church. But instead there has come a day of clouds and storms, and of darkness …  “And how did this come about? We will confide to you the thought that maybe we ourselves admit in free discussion, that may be unfounded, and that is that there has been a power, an adversary power. Let us call him by his name: the Devil. … It is as if from some mysterious crack, no, it is not mysterious, from some crack the smoke of Satan has entered the Temple of God.”

Ed note: To clarify, Giovanni Battista Montini was elected Pope June 21, 1963, and June 29, 1972 was when the above event took place commemorating the anniversary of the election. Father Malachi Martin explains the significance of June 29, below.

Pope Paul’s quote comes from the Apocalypse, Chapter 9, verses 1-2:

“And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit.” 

It goes on to describe how from the smoke of the pit come locusts, which are interpreted by some commentators as heretics, in fact, that is one of the explanations given in the Douay Rheims Bible. In addition, the darkening of the sun is also seen as prophetic for a loss of faith.

In his fictional work, Windswept House, Father Malachi Martin described the Enthronement of Lucifer within the Vatican on 29 June, 1963, which of course was right after Montini ascended the Papacy as Paul VI. In a subsequent interview, Father Martin confirmed that the Enthronement of Satan had actually occurred although he changed some details for his fictional account.

In March 2010, Father Gabriele Amorth, the chief Vatican exorcist, told Italian newspaper La Repubblica:

“The devil resides in the Vatican and you can see the consequences. … He added: “When one speaks of ‘the smoke of Satan’ [a phrase coined by Pope Paul VI in 1972] in the holy rooms, it is all true – including these latest stories of violence and paedophilia.”

In 2002, Solange Strong Hertz wrote a book in which she builds a very good case that we are well into the period of the Apocalyptic Trumpets. The title is in fact, The Sixth Trumpet. It is published by The Remnant Press, As of 9 October, 2015, this book is available from Remnant Press or from Amazon.

Father Amorth linked the clergy sexual abuse cases with satan’s influence in the Church, and in this, he is right on target. As Sister Lucia reminded us, the devil knows exactly what will destroy the most souls. And what has the Vatican done about it? Under Pope Francis, priest perversion and clericalism seems to be supported as never before, as anyone who has been paying attention knows full well.

There is much more on this important subject as we move closer to the Synod. Pope Francis is releasing his encyclical in which he is expected to commit the Church even more closely to to the anti-Christ agenda of the United Nations, then, in September he will come to America to push his destructive agenda, followed by a visit to the United Nations, all in the run-up to October’s Synod. Truly, “The worst are full of passionate intensity”!

 

TOWARDS THE CHASTISEMENT

And so the slide towards the climax of the Chastisement continues apace. My  intention is to provide you with some appropriate solidly Catholic prophecies, and some solid spiritual writing to strengthen your resolve as we gird ourselves for the tsunami that approaches. In the meantime, please keep us in your prayers, and we too, pray for you.

NOTE January, 2018. These old posts are like time capsules and as we look over them, we note the “progress” in the Bergoglian  church in the three years since it was written.  Pope Francis has shown support for notorious abortionists Emma Bonino and Lilianne Ploumen, has deconstructed the Pontifical Academy for Life and reconstituted it in his own  image in order to promote the anti-life agenda of contraception, abortion and euthanasia. He has continued to wage war against any slightest adherence to the doctrine and practice of the true Faith with his misleading and destructive “Amoris Laetitia”. He has insulted the faithful at every turn, most recently in Chile where he forced Juan Barros as bishop on the remaining faithful of that suffering church despite the outrage of the faithful of Chile.  Pope Francis has given the utmost support to promoting priestly perversion from de Kesel to Cupich, to Martin as we have documented.  He has continued to  insult Our Lady of Fatima  on her Centenary. And all this is capped off by honoring Martin Luther while erasing the Immaculata from the Crucifixion  and by insulting the Holy Family and the Birth of Christ at Christmas with the disgusting spectacle of the Vatican’s “Nativity” scene.  For truly, “the worst are full of passionate intensity”, for they know their time is short. And now is almost up.

ED. NOTE for July, 2019:

Well, things looked bad the last time this old article was posted (It is one of my earliest articles!)  but incredibly, Pope Francis has once again exceeded all the worst expectations we had of him.  Father Amorth’s warnings about satan in the Vatican, linked to violence and pedophilia are also becoming clearer as we see that pederasty among priests appears to be an accepted “rite of passage” for propagating perversion among the clergy, while often, the true pedophilia, associated with satanic practices goes unnoticed due to human trafficking.  It may soon come to pass that the extent of these two practices among those now controlling the Church will become clearer by the next posting of this article.

This article was last posted a year and a half ago.  In the interim, we have had so much sex abuse scandals and the Pope’s continued promotion of Bishops who are complicit in them and now we have the Pan-Amazon Synod looming over us. So there is much to motivate us – not to despair certainly, but to redouble our efforts in this great spiritual combat.

By the way, it was really nice to see such a good response to our recent scapular post. There has been a nice increase in interest in family consecrations to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to St. Joseph as well and interest in Enthronement of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts has increased hugely in just the past year. I believe Catholics are at last becoming motivated to look to their spiritual survival and that is why I re-post some articles. Many are just awakening and I often hear from people only now discovering my writings. Much of this is thanks to those of you who are kind enough to spread the word and you are very much appreciated. I pray for you always, and for your families.

Readers, as years go by and the evils throughout society and even within the church increase in both number and intensity, faith is truly becoming extinguished as Pope Benedict foretold. And yet, since the 100 year anniversary of Fatima passed without any sign of repentance or obedience from the Pope and Bishops, the culmination of the great battle between the Blessed Virgin and the Ancient Enemy has gathered momentum. After so many years of expecting it, it is now very difficult to comprehend that it can actually be unfolding right now. The sense of it is both astonishingly evil and surreal – like being caught in some frightful nightmare in slow motion.

We must not lose heart and we must continue to sacrifice in all things for the salvation of sinners, they depend on us!

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

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

†  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
†  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
†  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
†  St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
†  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

French laws no longer recognize the Creator

“French laws no longer recognize the Creator, but the Creator will make Himself recognized and will visit her thrice with the rod of His wrath.”

Thank you all for your kind Easter thoughts and prayers. I hope your Easter was happy and very blessed! Readers ask for answers about the torching of Notre Dame and the prophecies we sometimes discuss here, especially that of St. John Bosco. A review:

Now, St. John Bosco’s prophecy about France, especially Paris, is a particularly helpful one, not just for Paris, or France, but for for the entire Bergoglian Reformed Church, which sadly no longer recognizes the Creator..

“War comes from the south, peace from the north. French laws no longer recognize the Creator, but the Creator will make Himself recognized and will visit her thrice with the rod of His wrath. In the first visit He breaks her pride by conquest, plundering ruined harvest and butchery of men and beasts.

“In the second visit the great Prostitute of Babylon, which makes decent people sigh and call it the Brothel of Europe, will be left without a leader and will be a victim of disorder. “Paris! Paris! Instead of arming yourself in the name of the Lord, you fortify yourself with Houses of Immorality. They will be destroyed by you yourself. Your idol, The Pantheon, will be burnt to ashes in order that this may come true: ‘violence uttereth lies against me.’ Your enemies will reduce you to want, to hunger, to fear, and will make you the abomination of the nations. Ah, woe to you, if you do not recognize the hand that strikes you! I want to punish immorality, the despising of and the contempt for My law, says the Lord. …

“In the third visit you will fall into the hands of foreigners. Your enemies standing afar off will behold your palaces in flames. Your homes will become a heap of ruins bathed with the blood of your heroes who are no more. But there will come a great warrior from the North carrying a banner and on the right hand that supports it is written: ‘The Irresistible Hand of the Lord. The days fly by, your years will reach the destined number; but the great Queen (Mary) will ever be your help, and as in times past so in the future She will always be the exceeding great fortress of the Church.” (. . . )

“The enemy of the good does not stand idle one moment…He will raise up enemies amongst my children. The powers of the world will belch forth fire,  (. . . ) Wherever you go, continue and bring to an end the work entrusted to you. The days fly by, your years will reach the destined number; but the great Queen (Blessed Virgin Mary) will ever be your help, and as in times past so in the future She will always be the exceeding great fortress of the Church.”  (From “The Prophets and Our Times“, by Rev. Gerald Culleton, by KIC, Kindle Edition.)  

A reasonable interpretation, in light of what we know now, would be:

The Saint refers to France in terms that might be used by the Old Testament prophets castigating the unfaithful of Israel, calling her “the great Prostitute of Babylon”  and “the Brothel of Europe”, both references to France unfaithful to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and become cold and indifferent to the faith.

“Instead of arming yourself in the name of the Lord, you fortify yourself with Houses of Immorality.”  That is, instead of arming themselves with the weapons given by Our Lady of Fatima, the faithless shepherds chose the treasonous path of surrender before the secular agenda of the Rulers of the World, the enemies of Christ and His Church.

St. John Bosco calls the churches of France, “Houses of Immorality”, and he warns that they, “will be destroyed by you yourself. Your idol, The Pantheon, will be burnt to ashes in order that this may come true: ‘violence uttereth lies against me.’ Your enemies will reduce you to want, to hunger, to fear, and will make you the abomination of the nations.”  Refers to replacing the true evangelic mission of the Church with idolatrous liberalism, pantheistic ecumenism and sexual depravity. The Churchmen of France have allowed her churches to become stripped of their sacred character and become complicit in their prostitution as tourist traps debased to the leve of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. “They will be destroyed by you yourself” is obvious. Long before the terrorist torching of Notre Dame, the Bishops themselves destroyed the structures of the faith they have abandoned.

“Ah, woe to you, if you do not recognize the hand that strikes you!”  Yes, woe to the cowardly Bishops who follow their pontiff, agreeing to “speak not a word” about the true enemies of Christ who continue to smite the Bride of Christ.

The” third visit” is self-explanatory,

 “you will fall into the hands of foreigners … the enemy will raise up enemies from amongst my children . . . the powers of the world will belch forth fire”. At the end, Our Lady, as the Holy Ghost keeps reminding us, “will ever be your help, and as in times past so in the future She will always be the exceeding great fortress of the Church.”

 

There is another interesting prophecy, oddly enough, by a Jesuit from the 18th century, Father Nectou:

“When those things come to pass which will bring on the triumph of the Church, then will such confusion reign on earth that people will think God has permitted them to have their own contrary will and that the providence of God is not concerned about the world. The confusion will be so general that mankind will not be able to think aright, as if God had entirely withheld His providence from mankind, and that, during the worst crisis, the best that can be done would be to remain where God has placed us, and persevere in fervent prayer.

“Two parties will be formed in France which shall fight unto death. The party of evil will at first be stronger; the good side shall be weaker. At that time there shall be such a terrible crisis that people, frightened by events, shall believe that the end of the world is come. Blood shall flow in several large cities. The very elements shall be convulsed. It will be like a little general judgment. A great multitude of persons shall perish in these calamitous times.

“But the wicked shall never prevail. They indeed shall conspire for the destruction of the Church; but time shall not be allowed them, because this frightful crisis shall be of a short duration. When all will be considered lost, all shall be found safe. During this revolution, which shall very likely be general, and not confined to France, Paris shall be destroyed so completely that, twenty years afterwards, fathers walking over its ruins with their children, these will inquire what place that was. To whom they will answer: “My child, this was formerly a great city, which God has destroyed on account of her crimes.”

“Paris shall certainly be destroyed, but before this occurs, such signs and portents shall be observed, that all good people will be induced to fly away from it. After this most terrible event, everything shall return to order; justice shall reign in the world, and the counter-revolution shall be accomplished. The triumph of the Church will then be so complete that nothing like it shall ever be seen, for this will be the last victory of the Church upon earth. Those persons who shall behold this last revolution will thank God for having preserved them to witness this glorious triumph of the Church.” (This prophecy as well is from the book cited above.)

Note that Father Nectou foresees a confusion that “will be so general that mankind will not be able to think aright, as if God had entirely withheld His providence from mankind,”  That reminds me of what Father Malachi Martin said to us about the Third Secret.

The most intriguing portion of Father Nectou’s prophecy is the little vignette he offers, of a father telling his son about the the devastated city of Paris, My child, this was formerly a great city, which God has destroyed on account of her crimes.”

This need not be! Whether she is honored as Our Lady of Paris, or Our Lady of Fatima, she will bring the victory for she is truly, “the exceeding great fortress of the Church.”

Pray the Rosary !

Notes on the Apocalypse Chapter 12

Today, we return to Chapter 12, verses 1-9 of St. John’s Apocalypse, to illustrate the Vatican’s deception with regards to the Third Secret – and also, we might hope, to prepare us for the coming events, as foretold by the same prophecies.

[1] And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: [2] And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered. [3] And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems: [4] And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son. [5] And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to His throne.

[6] And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that there they should feed her a thousand two hundred sixty days. [7] And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels: [8] And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. [9] And that great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world; and he was cast unto the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

Sister Lúcia is reported to have said that the Third Secret concerns the Apocalypse, particularly Chapters 8 through 13. This is confirmed by two of the Conciliar Popes, Paul VI and John Paul II, in their words at Fatima.

Pope Paul VI

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, Pope Paul VI made a pilgrimage there where he delivered an address, “Signum Magnum” or Great Sign on May 13, 1967. In that address, he declared,

The great sign which the Apostle John saw in Heaven, “a woman clothed with the sun,” is interpreted by the sacred Liturgy, not without foundation, as referring to the most Blessed Mary, the mother of all men by the grace of Christ the Redeemer. … On the occasion of the religious ceremonies which are taking place at this time in honor of the Virgin Mother of God in Fatima, Portugal, where She is venerated by countless numbers of the faithful for Her motherly and compassionate heart, 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.” (Pope Paul VI, Apostolic Letter, “Signum Magnum”, that is, Great Sign)

Pope John Paul II

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

According to the divine plan, “a woman clothed with the sun” (Apoc. 12:1) came down from Heaven to this earth to visit the privileged children of the Father. She speaks to them with a mother’s voice and heart: She asks them to offer themselves as victims of reparation, saying that She was ready to lead them safely to God.

Later Francisco, one of the three privileged children, exclaimed: “We were burning in that light which is God and we were not consumed. What is God like? It is impossible to say. In fact we will never be able to tell people”. God: a light that burns without consuming. Moses had the same experience when he saw God in the burning bush.

“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)

Father Herman Bernard Kramer

In these quotes, we detect their intention to connect the Message of Fatima with Chapter 12 of the Apocalypse. And so we return to our study of this fascinating chapter.  Our guide for this will be Father Herman Bernard Kramer’s “Book of Destiny”.

 “.. being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered. … “And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to His throne.”

Father affirms that this passage points to the Church at one specific time, which had not yet arrived at the time of his writing in the early 1950’s, suffering the most severe crisis of her life in bringing forth a holy Pope who is to “rule the Church with a rod of iron”.  Thus, it points to the election of a Pontiff who will exercise his right as Vicar of Christ to Rule All Nations and this struggle within the church will be opposed by the powerful nations at that time. In verses 3 and 4, we see that this dragon had already corrupted one third of the hierarchy. Thus indicating that a great number of princes of the Church were confirmed in their service to the dragon at this time.

This good, strong Pope is martyred, as foretold in St. John Bosco’s vision of the two pillars, where the Pope is struck down, but before the enemy can rejoice, a new Pope is elected who is able to moor the ship securely between the pillars.

Father Kramer interprets this passage in the light of the prevailing “Cold War” climate of his time, that is, the post-war period of the 1950’s. He suggests, “Communism may have gained control of the governments of Europe. It would then erect almost insurmountable difficulties for the holding of a conclave to elect a pope.” I do not believe he is far off the mark, if we perceive communism correctly, as dialectical materialism, the fruit of satanic freemasonry. This freemasonry/marxism is the hidden force behind both the islamic revolution which is at war with the Church externally and the modernist/sodomite revolution undermining the Church from within. It is the force behind the secret societies who currently manipulate the commerce, governments and religions of the world.

Pope Francis

The dark force driving these internal and external revolutions, that is, the dragon, is already in possession of the highest authority in the institutional Church. There is ample credible evidence that Cardinal Danneels and his “St. Gallen Mafia/Lavender Mafia” actively sought to manipulate the outcome of the last two papal conclaves, and succeeded in getting their candidate elected in the last conclave.

But sooner rather than later, there will be another conclave, under very difficult circumstances. And this time, the Bride of Christ will travail mightily. She will bring forth a valiant Pope who will fight commendably to restore the faith, but he will be opposed by all the powers of the dragon, and will be taken up to heaven. The Church herself will be forced into exile, into a place prepared for her in “the wilderness”, that is, to a country that was not Catholic, but which will shelter her. St. John tells us that this exile shall last the proverbial “thousand two hundred sixty days”, that is, for three and a half years, or as sometimes described, for a time and times and half a time..

If you think about it a bit, you will realize for yourself which country that will be, and so I will leave it to you to discover for yourselves. For the moment, let’s return to the dark force which opposes the Church. This force is the same that Christ our Savior opposed violently while He was on earth. The sadducees, whom He called a brood of vipers were materialists and thus were not truly Jews, but worked assiduously to corrupt them. They denied the Resurrection, denied the afterlife, and were diligent in pursuit of money and worldly power. They were the money lenders who had made in the Temple, “a den of thieves”.

The Mystery of Iniquity, a dark force

Briefly vanquished by Christ when He cast out the moneylenders, the Mystery of Iniquity, that is, the dark force flared up in the hateful revolt that demanded, “His blood be upon us” at the Crucifixion. From the time of the destruction of the Temple, this dark force was thought to be eradicated, but it survived in the goldsmiths and moneychangers of the worldly for many generations. They controlled kingdoms through their usury and financed the wars. At times, this dark force blended into Christianity, even becoming priests, even rising to become Princes of the Church and gaining intimate influence with Kings. As stated previously, they rule from their secret societies, manipulating society through their control of education, entertainment, finance and commerce as well as governments and religions.

It was the force behind Martin Luther, the force behind King Henry VIII. The Age of Apostasy, which began with Martin Luther’s lust and greed driven revolt was its greatest achievement until the American and French Revolutions. Lucifer’s “Enlightenment” pervaded society until at last it penetrated the defenses of its ancient enemy, the very Bride of Christ. Vatican II was the bloodless enactment of the French Revolution within the sacred halls of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, striking at the very roots of the Church of Jesus Christ.

“And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels: [8] And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. [9] And that great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world; and he was cast unto the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”

And so we see that this passage promises us that St. Michael will cast out the dragon and his followers from heaven, that is, from the Church. This is the cleansing of the Church which can only be effected by Heaven through the Blessed Virgin Mary. It will be the culmination of the Chastisement as foretold in the Fatima vision of the Angel with the flaming sword, and as foretold by Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora and so many, many other revelations. This chastisement will end the Age of Apostasy, for, “neither was their place found any more in heaven”.

We will discuss these thoughts a bit more if there is sufficient interest.

In the meantime, please strive to promote devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary alongside of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, praying always for the restoration of the Faith. This restoration cannot occur until Our Lady’s requests have been obeyed. And so please pray for all Catholics to return to the true message of Fatima and obey Our Lady.

We recommend:

The Sixth Angel Sounded the Trumpet

Please pray the Rosary and make reparation for the blasphemy, sacrilege, outrage and indifference which so offend the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ!

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!

St. Joseph, terror of demons, protect our families, protect our priests!

Cardinal Manning on Bergoglio’s Reformation

Update: Since we posted this, there has been a really nice response. I know it 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.

Cardinal Manning on the heresies

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.

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 (and synodality) 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 Donoso Cortes, the Spaniard statesman and philosopher, to the effect that Christian society is doomed and that the principles now ascendant are universally anti-christian. From Cortes:

“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 Cortes 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.

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 apostatize 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 apostatize 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.”

This dire warning by Pope Pius XII indicates the apostasy begins with the Pope, since 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, Saint Francis foretold 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 on the Antichrist,

“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.”

The devil Hates the Holy Sacrifice:

“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 in 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,

(T)he 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!

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, 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 Pillars, the Trees and the Eucharistic Lamb

The Apocalypse shows that the triumph of Christ will be a Eucharistic triumph. That is why the Message of Fatima actually began in 1916 with the Archangel Michael teaching the children Eucharistic adoration and reparation … That is another reason why the First Saturdays of Reparation are vital. Without them, the Pope will not be able to repent and Consecrate Russia. (The Triumph of the Eucharistic Lamb)

We continue to explore the meaning of Chapter Five of the Apocalypse; and in today’s post we will look at a couple of church approved private revelations, one from St. John Bosco and one from Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora. Both revelations point to the same essential truth, which we affirmed above.

First, St. John Bosco’s Dream (vision) of the Two Pillars.

The only means left is devotion to Mary and the Blessed Sacrament.
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. (“Fatima, Vatican II and the Chastisement”)

Note, that this vision is also a prophetic indication of the way in which the crisis will be resolved. That is, by a return to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Eucharistic Lamb.

And now for Blessed Canori-Mora’s vision of St. Peter and the Cross-shaped Trees. This vision is a bit more complex and consequently has been the subject of more interpretation, thus confusion. Here is the account from Rev. Culleton’s “The Prophets and Our Times“:

“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 was drawing upon the earth an immense cross; at the same time the angels sang these words of the Psalmist, ‘Thou shalt make them princes over the whole earth.’

“After this the holy Apostle touched with his staff the four extremities of the cross, from which instantly 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. 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 these 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. 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.

“All men shall rise one against the other, and they shall kill one another without pity. During this sanguinary 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 that they can overthrow God from His throne; but the Lord will despise their artifices, and through an effect of His Mighty 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; … Nothing on earth shall be spared. God 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.

“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 earth, leaving everywhere ruins and blood. Happy will be all true and good Catholics! They shall experience the powerful protection of the holy Apostles, … 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. …

The Sign of the Cross, the Sign of Victory

“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 reestablished; 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.”

The quotations above are excerpts from The Kindle Edition of Rev. R. Gerald Culleton’s book, “The Prophets and Our Times“ produced by KIC.

In the prophecy of St. John Bosco we see that the smaller pillar is titled “Mary, Help of Christians” . Thus, Our Lady of Victory, she who is the help of Christians, will be triumphant over islam, converting the survivors of this false religion to the true faith. We see also that St. Bosco’s vision shows that Rome shall have become unmoored from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the sacred dogma of the Real Presence, but will return to it and be granted peace at last. How shall this be accomplished?

We know one portion already, that which is contained in the revelations given at Fatima by Our Lady of the Rosary. For the other portion, we began by our earlier post on the Eucharistic Lamb. Now we continue with Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora’s insights. In the very first paragraph, she quotes, “Thou shalt make them princes over all the earth” from Psalm 44, 17. That Psalm refers to the noble character of the Holy Catholic Church, the beautiful Bride of Christ and her Royal Priesthood.

And now we pass to the foretelling of the period immediately preceding the Chastisement, the period of most interest to us. This passage details the steps taken by the first Vicar of Christ to save the Church from ruin. St. Peter intervenes to establish four communities which Blessed Elizabeth describes symbolically a cross-shaped in order to emphasise that these sheltering communities are firmly rooted in the tradition of the Church, that is founded upon the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and thus, the Eucharistic Lamb. Hence:

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.

Her vision describes the trees as “beautiful … loaded with blossoms and fruits”; thus they yield beautiful large Catholic families, fruitful of vocations to the consecrated life, truly Catholic families.

She then foretells the Chastisement, “demons were issuing forth, who under the form of men and beasts came to ravage the earth, leaving everywhere ruins and blood.” This also has ben covered in previous posts but will be reviewed in a scheduled post.

“Then a great light appeared upon the earth which was the sign of the reconciliation of God with man”.

That is, the often foretold great Cross in the Heavens, after which the Church will be restored through those few faithful communities which have preserved the holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Sacred Priesthood, that is, those who remain rooted in the true faith.

We hope to post soon about the consequences and the remedy. Thank you for reading.

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.

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