“Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil knows what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls. Thus, the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God, because in this way, the devil will succeed in leaving souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize them.
That which afflicts the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus is the fall of religious and priestly souls. The devil knows that religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag innumerable souls to Hell … The devil wishes to take possession of consecrated souls. He tries to corrupt them in order to lull to sleep the souls of laypeople and thereby lead them to final impenitence.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima to Father Agustin Fuentes, December, 1957)
In that same interview, Sister Lucia had stated that the Blessed Virgin Mary was very sorrowful because no one had heeded her message. She also stressed that at that particular time, that is, in 1957, “the punishment from heaven is imminent.” Sister Lucia had earlier, in 1955, told Cardinal Ottaviani that the secret was to be revealed in 1960, “because it will be clearer then“.
Indeed, everything did become clearer in 1960, but it is only with our 20-20 hindsight that this is so. Ever the incorrigible optimist, Pope John XXIII dismissed Our Lady’s message as not for his time and locked it away in the Vatican archives. Meanwhile, he proceeded apace with his plans to convoke an ecumenical council. Yet even as all this was being done, homosexual activists had infiltrated the universities and seminaries, corrupting the priests who became Bishops and Cardinals. As predicted by Sister Lucia, the devil did in fact, lead many souls to Hell by way of priests and nuns corrupted from their true vocations.
By the time “Good Pope John” opened his council, the die was already cast. His disobedience to the command of the Blessed Virgin Mary meant that the Council could never be efficacious in saving souls. For the fruit of disobedience never advances us spiritually. And in fact, the Holy Roman Catholic Church has suffered brutally since then as increasingly the cult of homoheresy within the hierarchy of the Church has promoted devastating liturgical abuses, murky doctrines and has shown itself incapable of leading the faithful through the morass of a worldwide collapse of culture.
As we read Sister Lucia’s message, it is clear that it foretold a massive falling-away from the Faith. Her words, “The devil knows that religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag innumerable souls to Hell … The devil wishes to take possession of consecrated souls. He tries to corrupt them in order to lull to sleep the souls of laypeople and thereby lead them to final impenitence.” demonstrate a chilling prescience, don’t they?
Far from being a chaste, “Alter Christus”,a priest who is actively engaged in the homosexual lifestyle is living in a state of hardened mortal sin. His soul, totally dead to the sanctifying grace necessary for union with Christ is withered and although he may pose as an “alter Christus”, he is in fact, a diabolical deceiver, in no way able to effectively guide souls who entrust their salvation to him.
If you doubt the extent or even the existence of the homosexual mafia that wields such power in the Church today, the best suggestion I can give is to get Randy Engel’s book, The Rite of Sodomy. Although I already owned a few books on the subject and had read extensively on it, it was not until I purchased Engels’ The Rite of Sodomy and waded through its five huge volumes that I was able to clearly grasp the hideous extent and nature of the filth permeating our poor Church. Just the footnotes and bibliography make up nearly half the book. Although I initially purchased the Kindle version, I plan to obtain the printed one as well. The 5th volume is a recent update that pulls everything together nicely, and I’m thinking that as the media gradually begin covering this stinking scandal, Mrs. Engel will once again join the fray with an even better update.
The “gay marriage” agenda is being shoved through all over the world and now we have Cardinal Timothy Dolan using his bully pulpit to commend a sports figure who has “come out of the closet”. That must be one nasty closet!. Cardinal Dolan is simply following the trend set by Pope “Who am I to judge” Francis. You get the picture of a hierarchy that is aware that it cannot oppose the sodomite agenda because it is actually part and parcel to it. The Scottish Cardinal who tried to oppose “gay marriage” was called out by his own homosexual priests. That is a pretty vivid lesson right there. You will notice that no such public outing has happened to Mahoney or Dolan. For good reason.
The prophecy that, “The apostasy will begin at the top” is closely connected with the flood of impurity among consecrated souls foretold by Sister Lucia. They are both part of the chastisement visited on the Church as a result of the hierarchy’s lack of obedience to Our Lady of Fatima’s request. Even if you doubt this, consider a moment throughout all ages in times of crisis, God has repeatedly called His chosen ones to repentance and prayer. Look around at the world in shambles — and consider if it would not be better to devote more time to prayer, more effort to penance, especially the secret penance of simply choosing to serve Jesus and not ourselves each day!
Hasn’t the world got enough people brimming with self esteem and ambition? Enough people who know it all, and yet are ignorant of the wisdom of the Cross? Now is the time to renew our Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We are all here at this moment in time because Our Lord has invited us to attend to His Passion, the Passion of His Church. The Apostles who fled Him when Judas betrayed Him were given a second chance as they gathered around Our Blessed Mother in the Upper Room. We shall not be so favored. The time is soon coming when you will be irrevocably challenged and if you fail to join the fray now, you may not be able to withstand the horrors of the persecution to follow.
As Catholics, we tend to avoid criticism of our priests, Bishops and especially our Pope. But now is the time to speak the truth in justice and love. Remember that love is never separated from truth; love never serves lying coverups. The professional Catholic talking heads who attack anyone who brings up pederasty in the priesthood are only serving the father of lies, they are not tolerant, they are not truthful and they are betraying the Catholic Faith.
Our Church will be restored but it will only come through the perfect purity of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who is, by the grace of Our Savior, our loving Mother. She has assured us that, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” And so this tremendous spiritual battle between the filthy evil of satan and the unconquerable purity of the Most Holy Virgin has begun.
“…She … cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array. Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin. Give me strength against thine enemies. Amen.” (Prayer from Prime, Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
