From the many prophecies we have covered so far, (here, here, here, here, and here) we can understand that we are approaching the calamitous finale of the age of apostasy which began with Martin Luther, and which progressed through the disobedience of the Popes and hierarchy, until the church reached its absolute nadir in Humble Pope Francis/Danneels. His perversion of the virtues of poverty, humility and mercy will bring modernist miserabilism to its logical devastating conclusion and will result in the completion of the chastisement, and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who is destined to usher in a reign of peace and restoration of the faith.
But for those who ask, we offer the following from St. Hildegard von Bingen about the Church. It was, quite remarkably, used in an address by Pope Benedict XVI to the Roman Curia back in 2010, probably around the time he became aware of the extensive machinations of the St. Gallen group …
St. Hildegard’s Vision of the Church
In the year of our Lord’s incarnation 1170, I had been lying on my sick-bed for a long time when, fully conscious in body and in mind, I had a vision of a woman of such beauty that the human mind is unable to comprehend. She stretched in height from earth to heaven. Her face shone with exceeding brightness and her gaze was fixed on heaven. She was dressed in a dazzling robe of white silk and draped in a cloak, adorned with stones of great price. On her feet she wore shoes of onyx. But her face was stained with dust, her robe was ripped down the right side, her cloak had lost its sheen of beauty and her shoes had been blackened. And she herself, in a voice loud with sorrow, was calling to the heights of heaven, saying, ‘Hear, heaven, how my face is sullied; mourn, earth, that my robe is torn; tremble, abyss, because my shoes are blackened!’
And she continued: ‘I lay hidden in the heart of the Father until the Son of Man, who was conceived and born in virginity, poured out His blood. With that same blood as His dowry, He made me His betrothed.
For my Bridegroom’s wounds remain fresh and open as long as the wounds of men’s sins continue to gape. And Christ’s wounds remain open because of the sins of priests. They tear my robe, since they are violators of the Law, the Gospel and their own priesthood; they darken my cloak by neglecting, in every way, the precepts which they are meant to uphold; my shoes too are blackened, since priests do not keep to the straight paths of justice, which are hard and rugged, or set good examples to those beneath them. Nevertheless, in some of them I find the splendour of truth.’
And I heard a voice from heaven which said: ‘This image represents the Church. For this reason, O you who see all this and who listen to the word of lament, proclaim it to the priests who are destined to offer guidance and instruction to God’s people and to whom, as to the apostles, it was said: go into all the world and preach the Gospel to the whole creation’ (Mk 16:15)”

And Francis grinned and said, “¡Hagan lío!”
