“Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed;
nor hidden, that shall not be known.”
(Luke 12, 1-3)

In the earlier version of this post, five years ago, we focused on the scandal of the priest sex abuse crisis but that has long since become “old news” and the world has moved on to the endlessly fascinating “trans-sexual” situation which grows more Orwellian by the day. So let’s not go there. We also quoted the Akita prophecy which has been discounted by some today. I am leaving the prophecy in this essayand will return to it at a later date.
But now let’s take a look at that essay:
. . . There is a very real possibility that the long silent, although never publically acknowledged schism in the Church may become official. The question now will be for the individual Bishops to decide where they will stand. We are all aware of the familiar prophecy of Our Lady of Akita,
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops.”
Indeed, that moment is upon us, now it is over the Mass. So what are we to glean from all this? We might consider some prophecies.
“75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those
who will give themselves over to my service.”
In the auditory portion of the well-known prophecy of Pope Leo XIII, you will recall Jesus acceded to Satan’s request for “75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.” This indicated the removal of “what withholds” as also prophesied and explained by Cardinal Manning. Quoting St. Paul, in 2 Thess, Ch 2, v 6-8:
“And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh: only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way, …Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity:”
Cardinal Manning goes on to note:
“The authority, then, from which the revolt is to take place is that of the kingdom of God on earth, prophesied by Daniel as the kingdom which the God of heaven should set up after the four kingdoms should be destroyed by the stone cut out without hands, which became a great mountain and filled the whole earth; or, in other words, the one and universal Church, founded by our Divine Lord, and spread by His Apostles throughout the world.” (See our previous posts on Cardinal Manning’s prophecy, here and, here.)
Therefore, it refers to the strength of the Holy Catholic Church, in particular of the Vicar of Christ, the Pope. It is the authority of the Church which has been “taken out of the way”, that is to say, the Popes following the Second Vatican Council undermined their own papal authority, as well as the authority of the church, by collegiality, synodality and false ecumenism. The Popes themselves in their disobedience of the requests of the true Head of the Church, Jesus Christ, through His most Blessed Mother, have removed themselves as Guardians of the faith, as true shepherds of the flock of Christ.
The second, visual portion of Pope Leo’s revelation was the vision of a multitude of demons converging on the Eternal City, which I must confess that I cannot visualize without thinking of the cocaine fueled sodomites carousing at Capozzi’s “gay soirée”. Therefore I see it as being fulfilled in this present time. However, some apply it to the passage in the Apocalypse, Chapter 20, v 8: “And they came upon the breadth of the earth, and encompassed the camp of the saints, and the beloved city.” Despite their assertions, Chapter 20 does not refer to these times but to the time after the promised period of peace. We are in the time of locusts, of the smoke of satan, when the Bergoglian Church is persecuting the Church from within. That “camp of the saints” quote refers to the attack of the nations of the world led by the Antichrist against the Church, from without, as in the final battle.
More correctly: We are now in the period where Christ has allowed the Popes and the bishops the choice of obeying Our Lady in her requests at Fatima, or of disobeying. If they choose to disobey, as they have, then it follows that the disobedient Popes themselves weaken their authority and thus weaken the power of the Church, allowing the entrance into the Church of the most pernicious errors in doctrine and in the practice of the faith. It was Popes John and Paul that opened the Church to the enemy now within, and Pope John Paul II who presided over the massive infiltration of the Church by homoheretics in the seminaries, universities and particularly, advancing in the episcopacy.
The demons swarming over the Vatican in Pope Leo’s vision are those that have been welcomed in by those within the Vatican, even up to the very top echelon, who have welcomed the ancient enemy by their apostasy from the faith and their sacrilegious sexual perversions, offering the sacred mysteries with filthy hands and hearts, whited sepulchres filled with all manner of indecency and corruption and despised even by the devils they serve.
For this, we quote from Pope Leo XIII’s Prayer to St. Michael:
“This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity. These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions (Lam 3:15). In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.”
Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is Wisdom, has thus allowed the evil to manifest itself so that it may be driven forth, as evil is always driven forth, by fasting, penance, and prayer, and ultimately and most decisively, by the blood of martyrs, which renews and vivifies the faith. For make no mistake, it will come to pass, even as the Holy Ghost revealed to St. John:
“And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord (holy and true) dost thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given to every one of them one; and it was said to them, that they should rest for a little time, till their fellow servants, and their brethren, who are to be slain, even as they, should be filled up.” (Apoc. 6, 9-11)
The blood of the martyrs cries out for justice;
in no other way can reparation be made now.
What is our role in all this? We must stand firm in the true faith and with those priests and bishops who have not betrayed the Bride of Christ. At a minimum, we must recognise the true evil, and pray for those who are brave enough to confront it, and console Our Lord Who is so much offended. In addition, we must give the fullest consent of our will to obeying Our Lady of the Rosary in her Fatima requests. And we bear in mind that we are, after all, our brother’s keeper. She repeatedly asked for us to pray for sinners, and to ignore that plea is to become one with those who betray her.
We can not turn from this responsibility to pray and sacrifice for sinners, especially our hierarchy and priests.
We note here that of course, this does not preclude our taking action when it becomes clear to us, in all this diabolical confusion what the proper action is. But no one can take effective action, that is, action which is pleasing to God because it obeys His will, until he is prepared spiritually, that is, able to live his consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, His beloved Mother.
We all pray that God will send us a leader to unite behind and a clear path to follow, and this leader will be one who is totally consecrated to the Immaculata and completely faithful to her message at Fatima. God’s providence will grant us this leader when we return to devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who is “the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon, and the certain door by which we are to enter Heaven.”
There’s a reason for these posts I’m resurrecting here. But I do understand that few will note it. For those who do, please pray for the others, who are not able to help themselves or their loved ones.
Pray the Rosary and confound satan and those who serve him!
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins and save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy.
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 the Pope and Bishops who will obediently Consecrate 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!
