The Auto-demolition of the Church

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

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

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

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

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

Malachi Martin on the Apostasy of the Faith

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

“ALL DIVORCED WILL BE ADMITTED”

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

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

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

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

By request, repost from 2017, still pertinent today.

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

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

Fatima – the Chastisement of Impurity, 2021

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

(Sister Lucia of Fatima, 1957)

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

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

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

Chastisement

On the current Chastisement, a repost from 2018, restored

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

The Apostasy of Faith
Begins at the Top

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

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

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

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

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

A Clarity of Vision

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

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

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

† . Pray the Rosary daily.

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

† . Persistence and patience in visiting our Blessed Mother.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Worst Offense: Pope’s Disobedience

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

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

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

Points in conclusion:

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

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

. Russia has indeed been the source of the errors which beset us. Communism is defined by Josef Stalin as Marxism/Leninism, which is further defined as dialectical and historical materialism. It is satanic and atheistic and Jorge Mario Bergoglio has consistently displayed his acceptance of it as have many priests and prelates.

. The original “error of Russia” was to reject the authority of the pope. This vacuum was the opening for the satanic “anti-faith” of Marxism/Leninism’s atheistic materialism.

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

I am eager that the truth be told, that issues be brought before you clearly. Satanic marxism reigns in the Church and in Europe and Asia and the countries of the West.  It will triumph at least in appearance and we will be scattered and defeated. In the Church, satan seeks to first attack the Blessed Sacrament with sacrilege, and then destroy it altogether. To this end he has corrupted the clergy, especially the hierarchy.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!

The Message of Fatima, a Great Sign

From our archives, from 2017 and updated for August 28, 2021.

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

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

The Great Red Dragon

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

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

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

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

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

A Cycle of Death and Terror

We include two other quotes from the pope’s talk at Fatima May 13, 2010:

“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.”

Although Pope Benedict is a modernist and was one of the “Periti” who highjacked Vatican II – and therefore bears  much responsibility for the revolution unleashed by the Council, he did work to reverse at least some of the  errors unleashed by that Council. By issuing  Summorum Pontificum, releasing the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Benedict did much to restore grace to the impoverished Church.  And by his words at Fatima in 2010, he  helped mitigate his errors in the Vatican’s farcical Third Secret of 2000.

What changed his mind in the decade from 2000 to 2010? I believe it was the work of Father Gruner and the other true Fatimists, such as John Vennari and Christopher Ferrara who never ceased their efforts to keep the true message of Fatima alive.  Indeed, Pope Benedict seems possibly to be the suffering Pope spoken of so long ago by Jacinta. Her sufferings and constant prayers may have been what mitigated the disaster somewhat, especially if augmented by the prayers and sacrifices offered by those who have consecrated themselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in response to Father Gruner’s efforts. It is so good to see that Ferrara and the Fatima Center continue this fight to keep the message of Fatima before the eyes of the faithful.

The Devil is come down to you

For now, we return to Chapter 12, verses 11-14:

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of the testimony, and they loved not their lives unto death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you that dwell therein. Woe to the earth, and to the sea, because the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.  And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, who brought forth the man child:  And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”

This tells us of Satan, the Ancient Serpent, who has set up his Kingdom on earth  among the Godless nations and wars against the Woman, that is the most Blessed Virgin and the Church, the Bride of Christ.  Our Lord Himself has promised us that the Gates of satan’s worldly kingdom, the man-made utopia  which is even now promoted by Pope Francis himself -those hateful gates of satan’s kingdom on earth will not prevail, for the Victory belongs to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“A TIME AND TIMES and HALF A TIME”

A reader gives us insight into the scriptural phrase above. A very dear reader wrote me recently,

One mystery that I noted is a time, times and half a time falls between December 10, 2025 and June 13, 2029.  I often wondered why Our Lady would make Her request for First Saturday Reparation on December 10, 1925 and return three and a half years later on June 13, 1929 to request the Consecration to Russia of Her Immaculate Heart.  Why were these two requests separated by a time, times and half a time.

I believe those happy souls who will have five First Saturdays by December 10, 2025 will be greatly comforted during the dark times which will follow the one hundred year anniversary or Our Lady’s First Saturday request on December 10, 2025.  Then after the one hundred year anniversary of Our Lady’s request for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart on June 13, 2029, will begin the darkest time which will end with the death of the Church.

Our Lord will resurrect His Church.  We may not recognize it at first, like Mary Magdalen at the tomb; because, it may look different to us.  It just may be the old Church and ancient Liturgy.  Then will begin the wonderful period of peace Our Lady promised.

The reader’s comments above were insightful and I am very blessed by so many of those faithful Catholics who not only read my articles, but also contribute their thoughts!

TAKE HEART!

Think now, when Jesus our Savior was stripped naked, nailed to a cross so that all might watch Him die, seeming to be abandoned, in utmost desolation, was He vanquished by the devil? No, far from it!  And thus, think now, as the Church suffers at the hands of the same workers of satan that shouted, “Crucify Him!”; is she vanquished? No, far from it! Believe this! Believe it and trust! Take heart and renew your prayers, offer all as reparation. Now is not the time to fail.

In the above passage,  the Church, attacked by the serpent is given the wings of a great eagle to fly to a place of safety in the desert. To understand this passage, we look back to Exodus, to the time when the Lord God saved His Chosen People from the power of the Ancient Enemy in pagan Egypt.

After leading them miraculously into the desert, the Lord tells the leader of the Israelites,  Moses,

“Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: You have seen what I have done to the Egyptians, how I have carried you upon the wings of eagles, and have taken you to myself.  If therefore you will hear my voice, and keep my covenant, you shall be my peculiar possession above all people: for all the earth is mine.  And you shall be to me a priestly kingdom, and a holy nation.” (Ex. 19, 6)

In this passage, our Heavenly Father reminds that after punishing the wicked Egyptians, He  rescued His children “upon the wings of eagles”, that is by His angelic messengers. The “wings of eagles” refers to angelic spirits, either good or fallen, depending on their context.  For instance, Ezechiel 17,  the Kings of Babylon and Egypt are referred to as eagles that are allowed to war against the King of God’s people, who has broken his oath with  the Lord. We know that all nations have their guardian angels and they have fallen angels as well, to tempt them if they are good nations, and to rule them if they do not serve Christ the King. How powerful are these Principalities and Powers today!

Sustained by Angels

However, in Isaiah 40 ,  the Lord promises, “They that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles”. Thus, our Heavenly Father promises that those who trust in Him will be sustained by their angels, as has been proved many times in the lives of our heroic saints. In this, we see that the Church of these latter times after being chastened, will return to trust in the Lord,  Who sends the Church ministering Angels to lead her to safety. Applying this to our times, we again refer to the prophecy of St. John Bosco, which we posted as No Longer in Rome. Note that the Angels appeared to the Holy Father and the faithful. They carried a banner:

”They presented it to the Holy Father and said: ‘Receive the banner of He Who fights and scatters the strongest armies of the world. Your enemies are dispersed. Your children with tears and sighs beg you to return.’ “Looking at the banner one could see written on one side, ‘Queen conceived without sin,’ and on the other side, ‘Help of Christians.’ “

Returning to the Apocalypse, Ch. 12, in verses 15-16,.

“And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman, water as it were a river; that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

Now,  the term, “the earth” refers to the Church, as when we read of the Second Beast who arose from the earth, meaning from within the Church.  From our Savior comes grace that saves us, but from the ancient enemy, the serpent, there flows a torrent of vile sins, to flood the Church will filth, both material and spiritual filth (heresy, apostasy).  But this passage shows that the earth, that is the Church, “swallows it up”, that is, by the graces which flow through her to the salvation of souls, the Church will cast out all evil, reconcile repentant sinners, restore the Faith, and bring forth new and glorious saints, virgins and martyrs.  Apropos this passage, recall the prophecy of St. Hildegard in her work Scivias, which we discussed earlier,  The Figure of a Woman.

And for now,  we remember, all graces flow through the Immaculata, the Woman clothed with the Sun. And thus, her Immaculate Heart triumphs.

For the related, earlier post: Apocalypse 12, Part 1

Pray the Rosary and trust in Our Lady – she will not fail!

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 sinners.

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

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

The Message of Fatima for the Church in Eclipse

“I understood that the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity was being shown to me, …”

THE MESSAGE OF FATIMA FOR THE CHURCH IN ECLIPSE

In this era of the apostasy, in which the Church is being assaulted from the very top, we look to Our Lady of Fatima for guidance.

SISTER LUCIA’S MYSTICAL VISION AT TUY

On June 13, 1929, during her accustomed Holy Hour, Sister Lucia of Fatima received what was perhaps the most significant vision of the Most Holy Trinity and Blessed Virgin ever recorded in the history of the faith. Sister Lucia described the vision:

The Moment Has Come

“Suddenly the whole chapel became bright with a supernatural light and above the altar appeared a luminous cross that extended to the ceiling. In an even brighter light appeared above the cross the face of a Man with His body down to the waist. In front of His chest was a Dove, also made entirely of light, and nailed to the cross was the Body of another Man. A little below His hips appeared a chalice floating in the air and a large host, upon which fell the drops of blood that streamed from the face of the Crucified, and from His wounded side. They flowed down upon the host, and from there they fell into the chalice.

Beneath the cross and to the right was Our Lady with her Immaculate Heart in her hand (it was Our Lady of Fatima with her Immaculate Heart, which she held in her left hand, without a sword or roses, but rather, surrounded with a crown of thorns and all aflame).

Beneath the cross on the left appeared large letters, as though made of crystal-clear water, that flowed from the hand of the Crucified down upon the altar and formed the following words, Grace and Mercy.

I understood that the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity was being shown to me, …”

The Blessed Virgin’s message was succinct:

“The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father to make, and to order that in union with Him and at the same time, all the Bishops of the world make the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, promising to convert it because of this day of prayer and worldwide reparation.”

In a previous post (June 13, 2015), I provided some historical context for the timing of this apparition. Interestingly, not one single Pope has attempted to provide the faithful with any insight on this immensely significant vision, which is actually a revelation regarding the Sacrifice of the Mass as well as the Blessed Virgin and Most Holy Trinity.

If Our Lady only wanted to ask for the Consecration of Russia and the First Saturdays of Reparation, why the elaborate mystical vision? Some writers posit that it was a prophecy about the modernist attack on the Sacrificial nature of the Mass, and that is true, as far as it goes, but so was Knock, and it still did not account for the appearance of the Holy Trinity and the words, Grace and Mercy coming from the wounds of our Crucified Savior.

WHO ARE YOU, O IMMACULATA?

When we read Father Karl Stehlin’s “Who Are You, O Immaculata?” (Loreto Publications) it begins to become clearer. Fr. Stehlin, drawing on the works of St. Maximilian Kolbe, describes Mary’s role in our salvation.

“She is the summit of creation and the bridge over which all paths from heaven and to heaven must travel, the nave of the church that bridges the distance between God’s majesty and the guilty sinner and connects these two extremes.”

Fr. Stehlin affirms that the mystical vision at Tuy is meant to direct us to the true meaning of the Immaculata in the mystery of God and redemption. You really must read the book, but here are some excerpts to help us get to our goal of understanding the Message of Fatima in this post-conciliar church of the eclipse.

In Part One of his book, Fr. Stehlin offers us an extensive and theologically deep background on the significance of Sister Lucia’s vision at Tuy. Father Stehlin first describes the Blessed Virgin’s relationship with the Holy Trinity and explains that by holding her thorn-crowned heart in her hand and offering it to us, Our Lady was showing that she, as Co-redemptrix and Mediatrix is touching our world and is the channel through which flows the entire love-filled outpouring of the Holy Trinity into souls, also symbolized in the vision by the flowing, living water that pours out from the wound of the Crucified Savior into the world as “Grace and Mercy”.

Father S. reminds us that Our Lady of Fatima promised the children (and us!), “My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that leads you to God.“ He adds, Mary’s message can be summed up in three words, consecration, conversion and reparation. Thus, she draws them to her Immaculate Heart (consecration), then leads them in their return to God (conversion) and calls them to participate in the restoration of Christ’s reign (reparation).

“The time has come …”, Mary began her message at Tuy. At Fatima, the will of God was made visible to the whole world, so that now, in the end times, Mary might be made known to the world as the Mediatrix of All Graces, as the beginning of creation’s return home to God. Mary’s heart gathers the children of God and preserves in them the light of grace in the midst of a dark world. In her heart, we can endure to the end beneath the Cross of Christ. And thus proceeds the return through Mary to Christ in the Holy Ghost to God the Father.” (Stehlin, op. cit., p. 12)

As Bishop Athanasius Schneider noted in his response to this last synod, “Each period of confusion during the history of the Church is at the same time a possibility to receive many graces of strength and courage and a chance to demonstrate one’s love for Christ the Incarnated Truth.” (Rorate Caeli). In the midst of confusion and error, God’s infinite grace and mercy abounds for those who remain at the foot of the Cross with Mary.

THE PROMISE OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY

The Immaculata is, we are assured, “the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon, and the certain door by which we are to enter Heaven.” And so we see that her revelation in the mystical vision of Tuy is an encouraging promise for us now: She offers her Immaculate Heart to her children, those who are consecrated to her, who live their consecrations moment by moment in this desolate wasteland of the eclipsed church. The greater the trial, the more God’s grace and mercy abounds!

More than ever before, we will pray the Sorrowful Mysteries and open our hearts to the graces Our Lord is offering us through His Mother. The more that God’s justice is mocked and His sacraments despised, the greater should be our responding fervor; the more doubts and errors confuse the faithful, the closer we must draw to her clear, simple message of faith and obedience; and the more firmly we will abide with the Immaculata, Gate of the Dawn.

This post, originally from November, 2015, was reposted April 29, 2021.

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.

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.

Please pray for a Pope and Bishops who will Consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

We Saw an Angel with a Flaming Sword

From way back in the summer of 2016 we revisit this old favorite, slightly edited.

“At the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’. (Vatican)

THE URGENT NEED FOR PENANCE

One of the main messages of Fatima was the urgent need for penance. In fact, the year prior to Our Lady of the Rosary’s series of visits to Fatima, the Angel of Fatima St. Michael, appeared to the three little shepherds to prepare them for Our Lady’s appearance. That summer day 100 years ago was a day like today, shimmering in the heat of summer, when St. Michael appeared to the children as they played listlessly on the old well in the shade of a tree.

‘What are you doing? Pray, pray very much! The Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High.

‘How are we to make sacrifices?’ I asked.

‘Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. You will thus draw down peace upon your country. I am its Angel Guardian, the Angel of Portugal. Above all, accept and bear with submission the suffering which the Lord will send you.’

And so, one hundred years have passed and here we are, in the middle of a Jubilee Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis. Where is the penance, where is the reparation, the sacrificial heart? God’s mercy requires our heartfelt sorrow for our sins. 2017, we will mark one hundred years after Our Lady appeared at Fatima. Her message – the great prophecy concerning the coming decades if humanity did not obediently turn to God in prayer and reparation – has been virtually disregarded. Instead of honoring the Immaculate Mother of God, the Pope plans to honor Martin Luther, the arch-heretic who offended both Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Mother. In other words, the Pope will honor pride and disobedience as if they were virtue. This diabolical agenda will not pass without consequences.

FATIMA IS FAR FROM OVER

Apropos to this, Antonio Socci wrote a column in 2014, translated by Christopher Ferrara and available online at Fatima Perspectives. Socci states that it was Pope Benedict himself who confirmed that Fatima is far from over.  On a pilgrimage to Fatima on May 13, 2010, Pope Benedict affirmed:

“He deceives himself who thinks that the prophetic mission of Fatima is concluded.” … “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.”

In that same talk at Fatima, Pope Benedict said,

“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.”

And lastly, these few words, pregnant with meaning,

“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.”

And yet, what have we seen in these years since Pope Benedict’s prophetic speech?

We have watched the sufferings of the Church escalate to apocalyptic proportions, following Benedict’s strange “resignation” – partial or total – who knows? And the dubious election of Pope Francis, the Pope elected by the St. Gallen Group, the very faction which is dedicated to the irreversible change of the Church.

AUTO-DEMOLITION OF THE FAITH

The auto-demolition of the faith continues, and the most amazing thing is that almost no one is proclaiming the Message of Fatima, much less obeying it. It should be obvious for all to see that the command of God through the Immaculate Mother has been disregarded with impunity. Even among the most faithful Catholics, where lip service is given to her message, few actually make it a priority. I have tried to present various Church approved private revelations, such as those of St. Hildegard von Bingen and Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora which support the dire warning of Fatima. And also written many posts about the passages in St. John’s Apocalypse that substantiate the warning of Fatima. (Here, and here). But my poor microblog is never going to have much impact. As I’ve said elsewhere, my posts are like dropping rose petals into the Grand Canyon…

So, it is up to those of you who read this to:

“Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. … Above all, accept and bear with submission the suffering which the Lord will send you.”

Our Lady has assured us that we will suffer much but that she will be our sure refuge and the way which will lead us to Heaven. Do not be disheartened! We must not fail in this, for it is entrusted to us. Yes, we are all very weak and sinful people! But we are here now, at this time, in this place, and for this task!

And so we use the spiritual weapons she has given us – our Rosaries, Miraculous Medal, Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel, Total Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, First Saturdays of Reparation and Eucharistic Holy Hour wherever you know that the Tabernacle contains the Real Presence. Is the true Mass available to you? Even if it is several hours away, make every effort to attend at least once or twice a month. That is what sacrifice means. I know of a couple who make a very long trip once a month, and unable to afford a motel, they camp out in their vehicle. But at least, they combine their sacrifice with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and are joyful to be able to do this.

THE CHASTISEMENT

It is no longer a question of averting the severe Chastisement that is approaching. Or even mitigating it, I believe.  But we must save our souls and those entrusted to us. I believe that the United States will see tremendous natural disasters similar to the prophecy about the Third Secret revealed by Sister Lucia and relayed by Antonio Socci:

“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. …”

When we place these two prophesies side by side, we notice that the vision revealed by the Vatican speaks of an Angel with a flaming sword, crying out for penance. And Sister Lucia’s last reported vision (just above) tells of “the point of a lance like a flame that is detached, touches the axis of the earth”. In Sister Lucia’s last account, mountains, cities and towns are buried and an uncountable number of people swallowed up by the abyss. This echoes Canori-Mora, S. Hildegard and Our Lady of Akita. (See our previous posts)

Yet, Sister Lucia remarks, immediately after this revelation,

“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.”

For the true child of Mary, there is no contradiction here. For dire as the prophecy of the Chastisement is, like all that comes from our Father, it is a blessing. We need have no fear, but continue to live the Message of Fatima, in prayer and penance, doing all we can to make reparation to the Sacred Hearts and beseeching the conversion of sinners.

While Pope Francis and his friends lead the great mass of Catholics in a reckless race to self-destruction, we trust our beloved Mother and make Sister Lucia’s words our own, “Heaven, Heaven!”

THE NECESSARY SACRIFICE

Surely by now you all know this by heart,

“We are called 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 everywhere and always blasphemes, outrages and insults Him, pray especially and particularly for the Pope and hierarchy, that they and all poor sinners may be saved, through the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

Please continue to pray daily for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the continuing travesty of the Year of False Mercy called for by this unholiest of Holy Fathers.

May God have mercy on us all. Remember, Pray the Rosary and confound the Devil!

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.

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.

†  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.

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculata
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin, give me strength against thine enemies!
