Malachi Martin on the Apostasy of the Faith

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

“ALL DIVORCED WILL BE ADMITTED”

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

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

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

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

By request, repost from 2017, still pertinent today.

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

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

The 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.

Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin, Give me strength against thy enemies!

Malachi Martin on the Apostasy of the Faith

Father Malachi Martin died before seeing this brave new century and this destructive agenda which he had foretold. What would he think today?

“ALL DIVORCED WILL BE ADMITTED”

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

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

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

THE MOTHER OF GOD DISOBEYED

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

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

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

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

THE CHURCH IN APOSTASY

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

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

Father Martin then stated:

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

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

THE DOCTRINES OF THE FAITH IGNORED

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

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

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

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

AUTO-DEMOLITION

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

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

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

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

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

THE SMOKE OF SATAN

Nine years to the day after that enthronement, that is, on 29 June, 1972 Pope Paul lamented,

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

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

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

Father Martin continued,

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

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

One more quote:

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

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

“AN INFINITESIMALLY SMALL PART OF HUMANITY”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CHASTISEMENT AND PURIFICATION

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

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

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

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

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

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