The Auto-demolition of the Church

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

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

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

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

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

When will we learn?

ONCE THERE WAS A HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH

BUT THEN, THERE CAME A “SPRINGTIME” !

 

More than a century after Our Lord Jesus Christ sent us His own beloved Mother to help us return to His grace and His light, why do we continue to be indifferent to her message of repentance and salvation?

RETURN TO FATIMA!

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 Sixth Trumpet, 2021

An especially appropriate prophecy?

“. . . thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.”

Today’s post was last offered years ago, when we were only beginning the great reset planned for so long. As the Bergoglian Reformation continues, we sadly watch as the faithful are being abandoned, locked out of their churches, denied the sacraments, while the usurper pope banishes the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass from Saint Peter’s and makes war against the faithful who simply want to worship God in the way instituted by Our Savior Himself, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass of all times.

Honoring Judas?

Pope Francis now displays a painting that blasphemes Our Lord Jesus Christ in order to honor Judas, the “son of perdition”. The ancient enemy of Christ appears to be ruling the Vatican now. In this deeply spiritual battle, we faithful have no true advocates, for none who will lead us is a true apostle of the Blessed Virgin Mary, truly consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

Swept along in this dark tide, once fervent souls have become tepid, clarity of vision dims into obscurity and once reliable leaders stumble into error. Pray for them, pray also for the two men in white, squatters in the Vatican. Prayers at this time do not necessarily bring us comfort, for this time of winnowing is a time of sere desolation, and we will not see the Resurrection on this side of the veil.

“One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter.
And the sixth angel sounded the trumpet”
:

 

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

[16] And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. [17] And thus I saw the horses in the vision: and they that sat on them, had breastplates of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone. [18] And by these three plagues was slain the third part of men, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. [19] For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For, their tails are like to serpents, and have heads: and with them they hurt.

[20] And the rest of the men, who were not slain by these plagues, did not do penance from the works of their hands, that they should not adore devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

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

CHASTISEMENT

With the Sixth Angel’s Trumpet, we are introduced to the most severe chastisement so far. St. John himself seems to expect disbelief at the vastness of it, for when he announces that the army of horsemen numbers “20,000 times 10,000”, that is, 200,000,000, he quickly asserts, “And I heard the number of them”, thus confirming this number is from the Holy Ghost, and not his own conjecture.

The Great Altar is Christ our Savior,  and it is He who commands the four fallen angels be released. That these angels are fallen is clear because they have been bound. That Jesus is allowing them to be free is evidence of His justice, which has been so long mocked with the false mercy of hypocrites. The Great Altar emphasises Christ’s perfect sacrifice for us on Calvary and the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, for He is the priest, the victim and the altar. This vision is directly related to the abuses of the Mass, such as stripping it of its sacrificial nature, and the abuses of the faith, carried out by the leaders of the Church, those who are most called to protect, promote and defend the Faith.

Note:   Although Fr. H.B. Kramer believed the Great Altar to refer to the religious orders, the passage of time has proved that this is not the case. The once-great orders have succumbed to the withering “Springtime” of Vatican II.  Therefore,  the correct understanding is that of Fr. Berry;  that the Great Altar refers to Our Savior and His Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Both Kramer and Berry believed the Fallen Star to have been Martin Luther; but as centuries have passed, we see that Bergoglio’s Reformation within the Church far surpasses Luther’s, which occurred outside the institutional Church.

Indeed, the Bergoglian Reformation actually began with the disobedient Popes such as John XXIII, Paul VI and by now has reached its apotheosis in  Pope  Francis who has superseded by far the heresies spawned by Luther, and brought heresy and apostasy into the very heights of the Church.

The Four Angels of the Euphrates

And so, at the behest of the Voice from the Great Altar, the four angels from beneath the Euphrates are loosed upon mankind. As we have remarked before, four is a number of universality, and indicates how extensive this woe will be. Father Sylvester Berry believes these four angels may be the same four angels of Chapter 7, “to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea” and who were commanded not to hurt the earth, the sea or the trees until the servants of God were signed on their foreheads. (Apoc. 7, 2-3).

Fr. Berry remarks that the increasing severity of chastisements corresponds with the increase of iniquity. These accelerating woes portend the nearness of the coming of the Antichrist. This woe is announced for a very definite time, i.e., “an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year”, thus emphasising that the precise day and hour is determined by God alone. And the task? “For to kill the third part of men.”

The vastness of the multitude of killers, 200,000,000, indicates a universal revolution and Father Kramer’s Book of Destiny speculates that these murderous horsemen may be Muslims. In an earlier post, “Islam and the Errors of Russia”, we stated that Islam is actually a part of the scourge of the errors of Russia, which resulted from the Pope’s failure to Consecrate that poor country.  And now, when we view these horsemen in the light of the Message of Fatima, we see that they represent the full vengeance of the errors of Russia (dialectical materialism, atheistic marxism) wreaked upon mankind, including the violence of Islamic persecution with nothing to mitigate its wrath. With the uncontested islamic immigration, we see the stage being set for a war of unprecedented violence.

There is no human force that can withstand, much less conquer this chastisement, but only the merciful intervention of the Immaculate Virgin Mary. When the Pope and remaining hierarchy, chastened at last, obey God in all humility and obedience and finally Consecrate Russia as requested.

The Meaning of the First Woe

Thus we see that the first woe, the spiritual chastisement of the locusts, which represents the heresies and errors spawned by the disobedience of the Church, is followed by the second woe, a horrible worldwide revolution of unprecedented proportions, unheard of carnage. My understanding of this passage is not so much that of a high-tech nuclear weapons assault, but of a largely personal, man to man battle that will be of unimaginable violence. This could follow a worldwide financial meltdown, economic collapse, with the resultant rampaging, rapine and murder, perhaps as a result of an EMP attack, as many others have speculated, or alternatively, in conjunction with another weapon, perhaps biomedical terror.* Father Gruner’s latter writings mentioned scalar weaponry, but I am not knowledgeable enough to comment on that, although it would appear to fit nicely with Sister Lucia’s last reported vision.

Ed. Note: Regarding “Biomedical terror” I wrote that several years before the COVID attack on our freedom. And in time, it will be seen as the vehicle for the “unimaginable violence” to come. For those who have eyes to see, the masses are being whipped into a frenzy of hatred for those who reject the masks, reject the so-called vaccines. Soon, a much worse version will be spread, more deadly, more contagious and its spread will be attributed to “anti-vaxxers”.

Throughout the millenia, in times of severest crisis, mobs will seek a scapegoat to vent their need for “justice”, “Someone must pay”, so that “Justice must be done”. Look around you at the self-righteousness of the pro-vax crowd. Someone must be tarred and feathered, someone must be burned at the stake, bring back lynchings, bring back the guillotine – there must be violence! This has ever been the way. And so the vaccine will prove to be the pinch of incense for which millions will be murdered.

For so long now, mankind has spurned the wisdom of Holy Scripture, preferring the false god of science and evolution, and worshiping at the altars of technology, engrossed in their smartphones, relying on google and wikipedia and false seers, such as those of Medjugorje and Garabandal,  rather than on scripture and the church’s perennial teaching. Now will come a sad time when mankind will regret these foolish choices, but instead of turning repentant to God, many will long for death, as foretold above in verses 20-21:

“And the rest of the men, who were not slain by these plagues, did not do penance from the works of their hands, that they should not adore devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:  Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts.”

Misguided men have been led to believe that death merely extinguishes being, and thus brings surcease. They will find instead, the reality of hell shown to them by Our Lady of Fatima, whose message they ignored as unworthy of their enlightened age. They will know the truth at last, but it will be too late for this truth to make them free.

In the above scripture, the riders have breastplates “of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone”. Father Kramer tells us that fire represents hatred of God, the flame-colored smoke represents blasphemy, and the sulfur, rebellion. He explains, hatred of God begets disobedience to His law and leads to immorality, which expresses itself in blasphemy. Both islamists and marxists hate the Son of God with a diabolical intensity.

Father Berry’s explanation is slightly different: The riders and their horses, “inflict upon men the plagues of fire, smoke, sulfur. The fire is persecution and war. Smoke symbolizes obscuring of doctrine and the weakening of faith; sulfur, the moral depravity which follows.” This is the better explanation of the two. Note that St. John here states that, “the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For, their tails are like to serpents, and have heads: and with them they hurt.”  Serpents are symbols of lying and hypocrisy, which characterize the enemies within the Church, and without.

Today,  the Church is occupied by the same errors of Russia, i.e., atheistic marxism, dialectical materialism, warned of by Our Lady of the Rosary nearly a century ago.   Thus is the Church suffering through a betrayal such as never before seen, while the majority of Catholics are indifferent.

Apropos the Occupiers of the Vatican

The horses and their riders exemplify violent power, extensive, all-pervasive propaganda and heretofore unheard-of abuses against the faith and persecutions of the faithful. Those who survive will be still further separated; the faithful who are marked with the sign of faith will be strengthened, while those of the world will persist with even harder hearts, for they, “did not do penance from the works of their hands”, that is, they continued to ignore the call to  repent and do penance.

Father Berry tells us that the state of sin persists even after the plague of the murderous horsemen has passed, and will continue,

“until the Church is fully prepared to carry through with God’s special direction and help overthrow the reign of evil and the conquest of the world for Christ.”

This indicates that the Church will eventually, as Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lord Himself assure us, obey and perform the Consecration of Russia, after which a period of peace will be given. This period will not be very long, after which the woes continue, leading to the coming of the Man of Sin.

The Remedy is the Blessed Virgin’s Message of Fatima

The great revelation of Fatima has been by turns suppressed and  misrepresented. It is actually one revelation  composed of three parts which are inter-related and inseparable. The first part, the vision of hell and its remedy, prayer, penance and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary has been either ignored or misinterpreted. The second part was the demand for the First Saturdays of Reparation and the Consecration of Russia, without which we were told, Russia would spread her errors and there would be no peace, that is to say that the violence of war would continue. And so it has; there has not been a period of time since 1917 when there was no persecution of Christians, no war somewhere in this bloodstained earth.

Failure to heed this message has resulted in increasing material chastisement;  wars of  increasing in violence, and is rapidly culminating in a severe material chastisement. The third part (Third Secret) is the spiritual chastisement of the withdrawal of grace and the near total demolition of the faith, which proceeds quickly under this dark mockery of a “Vicar of Christ”.

Both the material and the spiritual chastisements will continue apace until mankind repents, however few remain. The longer that God is disobeyed, the more spiritual assistance will be withdrawn and the ancient enemy will appear to prevail everywhere.  We are approaching rapidly the time when we will have to rely on the Rosary and the level of consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary that we have achieved.  With the ever-increasing power of satan in the world, distractions and disorientation will provide immense obstacles to those attempting to remain faithful.

Now is therefore the time to devote ourselves to becoming the most perfect children of Mary, for in this only will be our safety in the darkness and disorientation.  Our Lord Jesus Christ assured Sister Lucia that in the end, the Blessed Virgin will prevail, for it has been given to her.

The Book of Destiny states that “Verses 20 and 21 presage a time of peace between “the first reign of terror in the Second Woe – the horsemen – and the reign of Antichrist.” I believe that this “time of peace” that Father Kramer refers to is the promised time of peace of the Fatima Message. Perhaps our Pope of Surprises is preparing the way for the next event. Will it be the thunderous hooves of the horsemen?  Some despise the Message of Fatima, while some faithful few repent and do penance. We do not know if there will be sufficient faithful obedient to Our Lady of the Rosary in order to turn the course of events and mitigate the chastisement, or will it simply be that the faithful are able to mitigate their own personal chastisements and save themselves and those entrusted to them.  One thing is certain, there can be no victory of any kind without sacrifice, penance and prayer.

False Remedies

Many call for political activism and seek a leader after their own hearts. However, all of Sacred Scripture shows that a sinful, unrepentant  people  will languish without an effective leader until they experience a change of heart, repent and do penance.  Heaven sent us an angelic messenger at Fatima, more than 100 years ago, when the Angel of Peace taught the shepherd children to “make of everything you can a sacrifice”.  These small children took the message to heart, yet today, even well-respected traditional Catholic writers can say that “Fatima just doesn’t interest me”.  Or, as one very popular blog recently stated, “It really doesn’t matter.” Some even mock the Fatima Decade prayer and those who pray it fervently.

What do you think? Look around, do you believe that any significant number of Catholics is truly dedicated to the Message Our Lady of the Rosary brought us at Fatima?  How many today can call themselves her children?

In St. John Bosco’s vision, once the faithful realized they were no longer in Rome, that is to say,  once they rejected their false ways and returned to the faith, angels appeared with a banner to tell them the enemy was dispersed. As they took the banner, on one side it read, “Queen conceived without sin” (the Immaculata) and on the other, “Help of Christians”, that is to say, Our Lady of Victory, who conquers islam.  This vision foretells that victory has already been given to the Immaculata, that is, Queen conceived without sin, and that Our Lady of Victory will once and for all destroy the Saracens.

Very many of us today pray for a leader to come forward but we should be cautious in what we wish for. Until we are purified by our own spiritual practice and learn to live our Consecrations and follow the commands of the Angel of Fatima, there is every chance that any leader we follow may lead us astray. Our first steps must be to follow Our Lady’s requests – the one thing most necessary is to save our own souls. Before we embroil ourselves in fruitless campaigns of a social/political nature, we must be very sure that we are solidly formed on the spiritual obedience to our Blessed Mother through the program she has recommended to us. Then our vision will be clear and we shall be certain that whatever social/political actions we undertake will have her blessing.  For many will be mistaken and follow false paths to their ruin, but her children who follow her will triumph, with her Immaculate Heart and her Rosary.

Therefore,  watch and pray,

“Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe, and do penance. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.” (Apoc. 3,3).

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.

The Smoke of Satan and an Apostate Pope

The Smoke of Satan and an Apostate Pope

posted on : may 5, 2020 posted by : evensong

Among Father Malachi Martin’s warnings was that Lucifer was enthroned in the Vatican, and that there would be a Pope under the control of Satan.

The following is from 2018, and has only been slightly updated. It is presented today as another in our series to indicate that the actions of those who have usurped power in the Vatican are proceeding rapidly after last Fall’s Synod of Darkness to eclipse the true Church with an apostate church.

LUCIFER ENTHRONED IN THE VATICAN

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.

Assuming, for the sake of argument, that the full enthronement did occur June 29, 2013 in the reign of Francis, a case could be made that such an enthronement would have given the current Pope previously unheard of power to destroy the edifices of the faith. It seems quite likely to have occurred.

NOTE: This post was originally written in 2018. It has not been fully updated yet. Here is the link to the Rorate article: “Scandal: A Bishop “Married” with Children Will Be Created Cardinal by Francis” Rorate’s update was that in a CNA News story, the Vatican and the Bishop stridently denied it, but Adelante published an extensive documentation that the story was true and furthermore, was common knowledge. The link to Skojec here.That is my reason for leaving it so.

But now, of course we have proceeded much further down the rabbit hole with the last Synod promoting essentially a new religion, eclipsing the “old” one.

And most recently, this past June 29, (2018)  the Feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, Pope Francis created  Bishop Toribio Ticona a cardinal.  Ticona is Titular of Timici, Prelate Emeritus of Corocoro in Bolivia,  It is public knowledge that while working in Corocoro, at the same time, in the Bishopric of Oruro he maintained a marital life with a woman; the wife and children are proud to call themselves the wife and children of the “Bishop of Patacamaya” as is also known Bishop Toribio Ticona. Cardinal Ticona is also a marxist. 

Thus, Pope Francis marked the five-year anniversary of the enthronement with a public display of the Vicar of Christ granting a high honor to a man who personifies infidelity to his priestly vow of chastity. This is perfectly reasonable in this satanic ape of the papacy: for now, the Pope honors deceit, infidelity in the service of the first of God’s creatures to proclaim, “Non Serviam”. To be clear, by his actions, this Pope honors not our Lord Jesus Christ, but His ancient enemy, who “will not serve”.

Readers, this is an indication that this pope intends to attack the Church’s sacred priesthood. At the time I wrote this, in 2018,  it was only a warning but is now a reality.

THE SMOKE OF SATAN HAS ENTERED THE TEMPLE OF GOD

Nine years to the day after that enthronement, 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.”

In the recent Synod of Darkness, the Pan Amazon Synod, we did see the Pope condone neo-pagan idolatry in the Vatican, even in the sanctuaries.

A POPE UNDER THE CONTROL OF SATAN

Antonio Socci, in his book, “The Fourth Secret of Fatima” relates the following episode which was recorded from a radio interview Father Malachi Martin gave on the Art Bell Show,

A listener intervenes on the precise content of the Secret: making reference to confidences received from a Jesuit, he speaks of a Pope who “would be under the control of Satan. Pope John was reeling, thinking that it could have been him.” Father Martin responds: “Yes, it seems that this person would have had a means of reading or would have been given the contents of the secret.” Then he got to the heart of the matter: “it is sufficiently vague to cause hesitation, but it seems to be that.”

If the Church had the misfortune to fall under the sway of an apostate pope and his Vatican who were under the control of the ancient enemy, we would see events unfolding precisely as they are now, using every opportunity to affirm defiance to the truth of Christ Our Lord. We would see the Pope:

  • Instructing the Order of Consecrated Virgins that their consecrated virginity is optional and can even be set aside.
  • Publicly honoring churchmen who are openly engaged in lifestyles which defy their vows of chastity.
  • Affirming that, “If anything, it is the communists who think like Christians.”, while at the same time, vilifying and betraying faithful Catholics.
  • Teaching that Judas was a “poor, repentant man” in direct opposition to Our Lord Jesus Christ Who taught that Judas was “the son of perdition” who was not saved. NOTE: This praise of Judas has continued to the present day. On Wednesday of Holy Week, Pope Francis again spoke favorably of Judas, contradicting 2,000 years of Church teaching and Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
  • Denying the nature of Hell, in direct defiance of the word of God and the message of Our Lady of Fatima.
  • Asserting to a young man who was the victim of priest sexual abuse that his homosexuality was actually ordained by God and that he should be happy with it. Note that priest sexual abusers spread their impure practices by initiating young men into their ranks with perversions. That is in fact, how this vile practice spreads, for the most part. For the Pope to assert that “God made you like this and loves you like this” is to claim that it was God and not a predator priest who caused this aberration.
  • To the above, the most recent initiatives of Pope Francis are the most telling: making changes to the traditional Latin Mass and his recent survey of ordinaries regarding the TLM. These moves should be considered within the context of this pope’s actions so far. We have no reason to believe that they are benign. Watch and pray!

In the next few months, we will see further milestones achieved as the diabolical sect labors to complete their eclipse of the true Church.

Thus, step by step, each objective is achieved and we shall see the pope at last, call down fire from heaven (Apoc 13, 13). All this is not happening in a vacuum, however. The portion of the Secret which refers to the material chastisement is also rapidly being fulfilled, although many Christians, even and especially those of the traditionalist persuasion, are tragically misled in this regard.

For now, we conclude with this oft-ignored caution from Our Blessed Mother,

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, 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.” (July 13, 1917)

Today, atheistic materialism appears to  have triumphed as the Bergoglian Reformation takes the side of atheistic anti-Christic China against the enslaved Catholic Church in China, and proceeds to attack the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacred priesthood and the sacraments which depend upon them. Please focus. Do not be distracted.

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.

~ 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!

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

Malachi Martin’s Three Possibilities

In this article, we are considering possibilities proposed by Father Malachi Martin for the present and near future of the Passion of the Church.

Continuing with the Coda portion of Father Malachi Martin’s book, “The Keys of This Blood”, Fr. Martin lists three possibilities, actually weaknesses, which are likely to be exploited by the enemy within the Church to destroy her. Each of the three would serve to sow doubt and confusion and scandalize the faithful, effectively disintegrating the vital unity of the Church.

The first possibility is if a sizable body of Roman Catholics, clergy and laity, become convinced, rightly or wrongly, that Pope was not elected validly.

The second is similar; if a sizable body of Catholics become convinced that the Pope has become a heretic.

In either of these cases, the primary source of disintegration in the Church would be that the Church, as designed by Her Master, lacks any earthly authority other than the pope to settle the issue decisively. As Fr. Martin expresses it,

“There is no official mechanism within the structure of the Church that is authorized to pass judgment on pope and papacy. Indeed, the Church’s official code of ecclesiastical law, canon law, expressly denies to anyone the right or duty of passing official judgment on pope or papacy.”

Now, that is, admittedly, a contentious subject and I do not expect to be allowed to let it stand. I am merely quoting Father Malachi Martin here. But perhaps most readers will agree, that even if there were a few Bishops and Cardinals who still had a staunch enough faith to stand up publicly and confront the Pope on these issues, [Such as the four Cardinals of the Dubia]  the Pope and his faction would simply rally their defenses – which are legion!

Then, do you think everything would just settle down nicely and the faith would be restored? No, the result would still be a shattered Church. Because the Pope is the key.

As we see, both of these “possibilities” foretold by Fr. Martin have come to pass, to varying extents.

The papal election has been cast into doubt, first by Ivereigh’s book and then by Cardinal Danneels, head of the so-called St. Gallen Mafia himself. And there is certainly no dearth of heretical statements and actions from this unfortunate pope. And so now, we have the catastrophe of many Catholics confused and arguing against each other, widespread disunity, a Church torn asunder. But there is an even more serious threat, the third possibility.

Father Martin’s third and final possibility that could shatter the Church would be “the Conclave election of a papal candidate whose policy would be to dissolve the unity and change the structure of the Roman Catholic Church by simply abandoning the exercise of the Petrine Office and privilege on which the structural unity of the Church is built as a visible body and by disassociating the approximately four thousand bishops of the Church from their collégial submission to the papacy. …”

We have written numerous posts documenting Bergoglio’s publicly stated intention to “change the Church irreversibly.”

Amoris Laetitia achieves that purpose as Fathers Gleize and Puga (SSPX) prove in their analysis of Amoris Laetitia which we discussed in a previous post.

Fr. Martin explains that the “Spirit of Vatican II”, contains the destruction of the Roman Catholic institutional organization. The Popes who should protect and defend the Church have committed malfeasance by collaborating in the lethal endgame of those who work to liquidate the papacy, and thus destroy the institution itself.

Fr. Martin interestingly uses Cardinal Godfried Danneels to illustrate the sort of Cardinal who is so thoroughly imbued with the deadly toxins of Vatican II that he would be part of the plan to elect a Pope who would destroy the Church. Thus, 23 years before it happened, Fr. Martin foresaw a Conclave in which Cardinals like Danneels  choose a papal candidate who “will be one of their number ” and “whose papal policy will be to crown and confirm the official existence of the spirit of Vatican II.” In other words, to achieve the “irreversible change” that Maradiaga, Marx, Kasper and the rest of their ilk have been braying about for so long.

Fr. Martin foresaw that the destroyer Pope would be committed to downgrading the papacy in order to mold the Church into the modernist/progressive ideal for this “new and far different age”. And Pope Bergoglio, from his initial “Buono sera” has never missed an opportunity to downgrade, deprecate, even humiliate the Roman Catholic Church in her highest office. Amoris Laetitia triggered the odious sequelae we now see, with various priests and Bishops throughout the world hastening to their own applications of the false mercy of the Apostolic Exhortation. See EponymousFlower here and Father Alain Lorans here.. For a while, we shall have the spectacle of one diocese where this new “mercy” is applied liberally, blessing homosexual unions, adulterous unions and so on. As well as perhaps, a neighboring diocese, where the Bishop attempts, for a while at least, a true Catholic approach. This confusion will continue until Francis exerts the iron fist of his Petrine Primacy. He will do this in order to destroy all dissent. Once it is destroyed, there will be no need for the papacy, because the doctrine and practice of the faith will be a shattered.

“Roman Catholics will then have the spectacle of a pope validly elected who cuts the entire visible body of the Church loose from the traditional unity and the papacy-oriented apostolic structure that the Church has hitherto always believed and taught was divinely established. The shudder that will shake the Roman Catholic body in that day will be the shudder of its death agony. …  Many will accept the new regime. Many will resist. All will be fragmented. There will be no one on earth to hold the fractionating members of the visible Roman Catholic body together as a living compact organization.”

As we survey the ruins since 2013, it appears that all three of Malachi Martin’s “possibilities” have been realized to one extent or another, but the last one, the election of a destroyer pope is the one we see playing out most clearly at present. Pope Francis is the first Vicar of Christ to claim the surreal distinction of being more humble, more merciful, than Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. When reading Amoris Laetitia, I experienced the “shudder” that Fr. Martin foretold. I have not stopped mourning since.

But just as Judas served his purpose, so does the destroyer Pope. “For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh.” Therefore, the little shepherdess, Blessed Jacinta, urged us all to “Pray for the Pope, Pray.”

To return to Fr. Martin’s Coda, he assures us that this Church, founded by Christ will survive and live on; the whole brute strength of Hell will not prevail against it. And the successor of this Betrayer Pope will be converted and will restore the faith and the Church. And we know that this is so, for we have been assured that in the end, Our Lady of the Rosary will triumph, by her Immaculate Heart.

How will this happen?

How will the Church survive this attack? In the same way as her Master suffered, died and was buried; the Bride of Christ will seem to have been vanquished, but that will be the moment when the tide will turn. Actually, quite literally. There will be no doubt at that time as to Who is the Head of the Church. But just as we cannot have the Resurrection without the Passion and Death of Our Lord, so we will not have the restoration of the faith until satan has played his hand. Remember Luke’s account of Christ’s appearance to His disciples at Emmaus, when He asserted, “Ought not Christ to have suffered these things and so to enter into His glory?” As then, so now, there will be great suffering.

We are on the cusp of a tremendous chastisement, and it is entirely too late to postpone it, or even to mitigate it. All that remains is to prepare ourselves by the means that Our Lord has given us through the message of His Mother at Fatima. It would be enough to make us despair if we did not know that all this has been foretold. We know what to expect, and in that regard, we are  blessed in a way that the Magdalene and the Apostles were not.

As Our Lord’s followers walked away from the tomb where they had laid Our Lord, into the desolate, gathering gloom, none could even conceive of the possibility of a glorious Resurrection. Only His Mother knew without the slightest shred of doubt that He was triumphant. But we, privileged with hindsight, realise that this disheartening chaos will have a resolution in God’s own good time. Meanwhile, there will be much suffering and immense sorrow as many souls will be scandalized. We must dedicate all our efforts to prayer and sacrifice to save souls in this horrific battle. For we shall have to answer for all those souls entrusted to us. Remember why we are here!

Fr. Martin’s Coda ends with a fictional scenario, more poignant now than when it was written. Most of us admit to nostalgia for what might have been had John Paul II been truly “Great”. Martin’s fictional version of the Polish Pope, Papa Valeska, calls a consistory and asserts his plan to restore the Faith unambiguously, and to purge the forces of anti-Church from the Church. As this fictional Consistory ends, a loyal supporter of Pope Valeska surveys the scene and recalls the desperate plea and prayer of the Greek warrior Ajax, who was forced to combat an overwhelming foe on a darkened plain:

“Father in Heaven,
Deliver us from this darkness.
And make our skies clear.
If we must die, let us die in the light.”

†  Remember, Pray the Rosary and confound satan and all his works and pomps.
† Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
†  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
†  St. Joseph, protect our families, protect the Church.
†  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

The Auto-demolition of the Church

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.)

The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception was defined and proclaimed in the 19th century, and early in the 20th century, our Lord Jesus Christ sent His Mother to request devotion to her Immaculate Heart as a remedy for the increasing heresies of scientism and modernism, the increasing apostasy from the faith. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is absolutely inimical to the Lord of the World, Satan, who is at war always and everywhere with the Church, the Bride of Christ, and with her Mother. Exorcists have amply demonstrated this intense hatred which Satan bears for the Blessed Virgin Mary, and his impotence where she is concerned. This is documented in the writings of Fathers Gabriele AmorthMalachi Martin and Leon Cristiani.

Satan’s immense pride demands that he not be subject to the truly pure and humble Virgin of Nazareth. And that is precisely why Jesus Christ wills that the instrument He will use (and is using!) for the ultimate humiliating defeat of the so-called “Lord of the World” will be accomplished through this Immaculate Virgin, Queen of the Church, Mother of God, Mary Most Holy. With each rosary, with each First Saturday of Reparation to her, we contribute to Satan’s ultimate demise.

No Pope since Fatima has followed the Queen of Heaven’s request. There is no such thing as ‘close enough’ when obeying God. After years of disobedience, the mind and conscience of the Popes was sufficiently darkened to allow Pope John XXIII to simply outright deny Our Lady’s requests in 1960, choosing instead to lock away the document (Third Secret). This breath-taking hubris was followed by the most disastrous decision in the history of the Church, i.e., to convene an Ecumenical Council that would define no doctrine, simply issue a deluge of vague and ambiguous documents.

The very experts who participated in the Council described it as, “… the Revolution of 1789 in the Church”. It is beyond the scope of this small article to include all the quotes confirming the fact that Vatican II was, by the very experts who controlled and defined it, considered a “razing of the bastions, a counter-syllabus and a 180 degree turn from Vatican I and the counter-reformation”“As for what is called ‘Catholicism’ … if it is understood as the artificial system forged by the Counter-reformation … then this might as well die.” These quotes and many, many more are attributed to such notables as Suenens, Kung, Chenu, Bouyer, von Balthasar and Ratzinger and can best be found, with meticulous documentation, in Atila Sinke Guimaraes, Animus Delendi I.

The Church entered into a new phase at and after Vatican II, a phase of persecution from within, when the Church’s greatest treasures, her holy sacrifice of the Mass, her sacraments and her unchanging doctrines, were subverted. With Vatican II, the enemy was within the gates at last, and the often stated Masonic goal of controlling its ancient enemy, the Bride of Christ began to be achieved. To this end, it was necessary  for the revolutionaries to promote the auto-demolition of the Church.

To understand the process of auto-demolition, let us take a brief look at the concept of “kenosis” which is a key constituent of the application of the modernist heresy. Kenosis is a perfectly legitimate concept meaning an emptying, divestiture or even annihilation. As such, we see it in St. Paul’s Epistle to the Philippians, for example,  where he refers to Christ “emptying Himself, taking the form of a servant”. As is characteristic of heresies, however, the modernist concept of kenosis is applied in a perverted form to the Church in a truly deleterious fashion.

“The (modernist) doctrine of kenosis was drawn from ancient heresies and especially from some theses of Luther updated by protestant interpretations and Greek-schismatic concepts from the second half of the 19th century and the early 20th century. To this doctrine, certain progressivists fused elements of German idealism – especially a certain nostalgic and romantic note typical of Schelling and Hegel’s dialectic method, along with the more recent phenomenological theories of Husserl and Scheler. … The resulting mixture … translated into the present ardor to destroy the Holy Church based on the documents of the Council.” (Animus Delendi, p. 88)

This destructive tendency has become so prevalent in the reign of this humble Bishop of Rome, that many Catholics take it for granted, like poor frogs in boiling water, unaware of the destruction which surrounds them and will soon destroy them. In this brief article, I can do no more than point out this miserabilism to call it to your attention. I first noticed it in the end of the 1960’s and early 1970’s when  our parish priest was forced to institute the Novus Ordo and began wearing those awful, ugly polyester sheets instead of the beautiful chasubles, hand-embroidered by the nuns.  Then our Sisters of St. Joseph “updated” their lovely Chapel, and hired local men to strip it of all the beautiful statuary, and replace the Last Supper altar with a plain table. The end result was a chapel that strongly resembled a severe protestant non-denominational meeting hall. Within a few short years, the convent itself was torn down and the nuns were gone.

The Synod will be here in about a month, but prior to it and very soon, we shall be subjected to yet another massive assault on the most Blessed Sacrament, when Pope Francis once again commits such a horrid sacrilege as his Novus Ordo/Communion free for all in Philadelphia. Once again, we will weep as Our Lord Jesus Christ is trampled underfoot by crowds of unbelievers, subjected to unspeakable humiliations. That  baneful event will be followed by the Pontiff’s visit to the United Nations, there to continue his humiliation of the Bride of Christ by subjecting Her to the Lord of this World’s own church, the United Nations Universal Church of Man. Notice Pope Francis often addresses his polemics to “all the people of the world”.

Only by returning in true humility, Mary-like, can he hope to lead the people back to Christ. We pray that Our Lady of the Rosary guide him and his wayward hierarchy of apostates back to the faith, back to eternal Rome, before the Chastisement overtakes them – and us – all.

Pray the Rosary and confound the devil!
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!

And They Realized They Were No Longer in Rome

“And they realized they were no longer in Rome …”

St. John Bosco’s prophecy of the two pillars is fairly well known, but he also made another prophecy, which is related in the book by Rev. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times:

“And to you, Rome, what will happen? Ungrateful Rome! Effeminate Rome! proud Rome! “…Rome! To you I will come four times! The first time, I shall strike your lands and the inhabitants thereof. The second time, I shall bring the massacre and the slaughter even to your very walls. And will you not yet open your eyes I shall come a third time and I shall beat down to the ground your defenses and the defenders and at the command of the Father, the reign of terror, of dreadful fear and of desolation shall enter into your city.

“But My wise men have now fled and My law is even now trampled underfoot. Therefore I will make a fourth visit. Woe to you if My law shall still be considered as empty words. There will be deceit and falsehood among both the learned and the ignorant. Your blood and that of your children will wash away your stains upon God’s Law. War, pestilence and famine are the rods to scourge men’s pride and wickedness. O wealthy men, where is your glory now, your estates, your palaces? They are rubble on the highways and byways. …

“And they realized they were no longer in Rome…”

“It was a dark night. Men could no longer tell which way to take in order to return to their homes. Of a sudden there appeared in the heavens a very bright light that illuminated the steps of the travelers as though it were mid-day. At that moment there was seen a host of men and women, of young and old, of nuns, monks and priests with the Holy Father at the head. They were going out from the Vatican and were arranging themselves in line for a procession. “Then there came a furious storm which clouded that light somewhat and made it appear that light and darkness were engaged in battle. In the meantime, they arrived at a little square covered with dead and wounded, some of whom cried aloud and asked for help.

“Very many were dropping out of the line of procession. After having walked for a time that would correspond to two hundred risings of the sun (200 days) they all realized that they were no longer in Rome. Struck with fear they all ran to the Holy Father to defend him personally and to attend his wants. Instantly two angels were seen carrying a banner, going 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.’

“The Holy Father joyfully took the banner, but looking closely at the small number of those who remained with him, he became very sad. “The two angels added: ‘Go quickly to console your children. Write your brothers dispersed throughout the world that there must be a reform in the morals of men. That cannot be obtained except by distributing to the people the bread of the Divine Word. Catechize the children. Preach the detaching of the heart from the things that are of the earth. The time has come,’ concluded the two angels, ‘when the poor shall evangelize the people. Vocations will come from among those working with the spade, the axe, and the hammer to the end that they fulfill the words of David: ‘God has raised up the poor from the land in order to place them on the thrones of the princes of His people.

“Having heard that, the Holy Father began the march. The farther he went the greater did the procession behind increase. When finally he set foot in the Holy City, he wept bitter tears for the distress in which he found the people and the large number now missing. As he entered St. Peter’s he intoned the ‘Te Deum’ to which a choir of angels replied singing: ‘Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men of good will. “With the ending of the hymn, there came an end to the thick darkness and the sun shone with a brightness all its own. (From Rev. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, Kindle Edition, by KIC)

Just a few notes on this fascinating prophecy:

Note the mention of darkness, confusion, the impression that “light and darkness were engaged in battle.” An apt description of this current age of apostasy.

When the Pope and those faithful to him left Rome (journeying to the peripheries perhaps?), they passed by faithful Catholics wounded and dying and took note of them, but there is no mention of offering them aid, is there?

As the Pope advanced farther from Rome, very many dropped out. Seems to indicate that the farther the Pope gets from the true dogmas of the Faith, the less Catholics are inclined to follow, as we see in the grim statistics marking the withering “Springtime” of Vatican II.

But the most significant portion of the prophecy is when the two angels appear to tell the Pope: ‘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.’

In this, as in his prophecy of the Two Pillars, St. John Bosco affirms that Christ the King prefers to conquer through means of His Most Blessed Mother. The banner of Christ the King bears two of her titles: The first, “conceived without sin” is of course, the Immaculate Conception which implies devotion to her Immaculate Heart.

The second title is also very informative as well, for it is Mary Help of Christians,  that is, Our Lady of Victory, which  in turn means Our Lady of the Rosary. Thus, we see Saint Don Bosco  pointing out that Christ the King will triumph through the two devotions,  to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and her Holy Rosary.  As we think on this, it seems to indicate that Our Lady of Victory through her Rosary will return to Fatima for the seventh and final time, to win the decisive victory againt the hordes waged against the faith.

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, guardian of the Holy Family, protect our families, protect our priests!
