Of Winter Figs and Falling Stars

There is much disquieting news coming and each new “surprise” from Francis exceeds the previous one in shocking and demoralizing us further. The recent video of the Humble Guy’s  ersatz prayer intentions was so awful that the Denziger-Bergoglio had to put together a huge file of real Church teaching just to refute its many errors. They aptly titled their essay, “Words Fail Us”. Then John Vennari sent a link to a news item, “Pro-homosexual Father Timothy Radcliffe Featured Speaker at 51st International Eucharist Congress”. Just read that title again slowly. It’s OK to cry. We all do that sooner or later in this joyful Church of Humble Gayness that Pope Francis has built on the ruins of the old one founded by that hebrew apostate, what was His name?

We left off with Apocalypse 5 in our last post about the prophetic vision of Knock. And so, let’s continue with Apocalypse 6. You may read it here if your Bible is not handy. The Apocalypse of St. John. Verses 12-17:

Apocalypse 6, 12-17:  [12] And I saw, when he had opened the sixth seal, and behold there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair: and the whole moon became as blood: [13] And the stars from heaven fell upon the earth, as the fig tree casteth its green figs when it is shaken by a great wind: [14] And the heaven departed as a book folded up: and every mountain, and the islands were moved out of their places. [15] And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and tribunes, and the rich, and the strong, and every bondman, and every freeman, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of mountains:

[16] And they say to the mountains and the rocks: Fall upon us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb: [17] For the great day of their wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?

The Withering Springtime of Pope Francis

In his “Book of Destiny”, Father Herman Kramer tells us that this passage refers to a religious revolution. Like the modernist experts who highjacked Vatican II, Pope Francis refers to a revolution in the Church approvingly. Father Kramer explains that the image of verse 13 refers to winter figs, “of poor quality which fall off in spring without ripening”.

“It may denote those bishops and priests who are worldly-minded, unworthy ministers, having entered the priesthood from worldly motives. And for that reason they do not grow to maturity but are blown off the living tree, the Church, in the storms of heresy that sweep over the earth. Storms and winds in prophetic language represent rebellions, revolutions and invading armies. The falling of the stars from heaven describes graphically the defection of apostates from the supernatural state of grace into the state of sin. And their falling as thickly as figs, when a loaded tree is shaken by a violent gust of wind, describes nothing more precisely than the apostasy…” (Kramer, op. cit.)

in verse 14,  “And the heaven departed as a book folded up: and every mountain, and the islands were moved out of their places.” denotes the Church becoming inaccessible to the faithful, its beauty and grace obscured by the smoke of heresy, and this figure itself echoes an earlier prophetic vision, that of isaiah 34: ” [4] And all the host of the heavens shall pine away, and the heavens shall be folded together as a book: and all their host shall fall down as the leaf falleth from the vine, and from the fig tree.”

Isaiah was prophesying against Israel succumbing to the heresies of the surrounding pagan nations, foretelling the impending justice of God, which always awaits those who presume upon His mercy and continue in their sins. Much as the false ecumenism of the current Bergoglio/Kasper/Danneels papacy.

Thus, the silent tableau of Knock, by pointing to the Apocalypse, is a warning of the Apostasy of the Faith. This is what the Chastisement of the faith looks like. The faithful look in vain to their corrupt “Princes”. But they, the winter figs of the Apocalypse, are blinded by their perversions, they are weak and emasculated. Like the Arian Bishops, even those who do not agree with the heterodoxy promoted by the Pontiff are not manful enough to oppose it. And what follows this sad scenario of the Bishops falling like winter figs, shaken loose in the revolution of modernist, neo-pagan heresy, to rot in the earth?

“[15]The Kings of the earth and the rich and the strong, and every man, free or bond, hid themselves and said, “Fall upon us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb: [17] For the great day of their wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?”

God is allowing His Church to be chastised. This is what a spiritual chastisement looks like. The Church is designed by her Creator and Savior in such a way that the faithful, no matter how numerous and well intentioned, can only be freed of this cancerous growth by becoming humble, obedient children of Mary. That is the first lesson Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us, becoming utterly helpless, entrusting Himself totally to Mary and Joseph. At Fatima, as at Knock, the silent tableau of visions reiterated the importance of turning to Mary and Joseph.

Now when our Heavenly Father sees that we have continued to spurn these visions and ignore these messages, He will proceed with such a chastisement that no one on earth can possibly ignore. Although Catholics may shrug off the increasingly flagrant offenses to the faith offered by this pontiff and his followers, they will not fail to notice the rest of what has been foretold:

Our Lady of Akita: “if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests.”

Do please notice that Our Lady of Akita does not mention that the Mass will be left to the survivors. As at the silent visions of Knock and Fatima, the Mass will be silenced. At Knock, Our Lady never looked at us, but only towards God in deepest prayer. At LaSalette, she cried continuously. At Fatima, Lucia remarked that Our Lady was so sad always, and never smiled. At Akita she also cried.

Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora was graced with an apparition of Our Lady and the Christ Child in 1816. She was struck by the deep sorrow of the Blessed Mother’s countenance and asked Our Lady what could be the cause of such sorrow,

“Behold, my daughter, such great ungodliness.” Blessed Elizabeth then saw “apostates brazenly trying to rip her most holy Son from her arms. Confronted with such an outrage, the Mother of God ceased to ask mercy for the world, and instead requested justice from the Eternal Father. Clothed in His inexorable Justice and full of indignation, He turned to the world.

“At that moment all nature went into convulsions, the world lost its normal order and was filled with the most terrible calamity imaginable. This will be something so deplorable and atrocious that it will reduce the world to the ultimate depths of desolation.”

In 1944, Sister Lucia also was given a vision:

" the point of a lance like a flame ... touches the axis of the earth"
” the point of a lance like a flame … touches the axis of the earth”

“I felt my spirit inundated by a mystery of light that is God and in Him I saw and heard: the point of a lance like a flame that is detached, touches the axis of the earth, and it trembles: mountains, cities, towns and villages with their inhabitants are buried. The sea, the rivers, the clouds, exceed their boundaries, inundating and dragging with them, in a vortex, houses and people in a number that cannot be counted. It is the purification of the world from the sin in which it is immersed. Hatred, ambition, provoke the destructive war. After I felt my racing heart, in my spirit a soft voice said: ‘In time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. In eternity, Heaven!’ This word ‘Heaven’ filled my heart with peace and happiness in such a way that, almost without being aware of it, I kept repeating to myself for a long time: Heaven, Heaven.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima)

The weak, emasculated winter figs, our poor sinful prelates cannot help themselves much less the Church. We must not look to them to stop the apostasy of the faith. We must pray for them and the pope, offer our penances, make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Only humbling ourselves, acknowledging that we are powerless in this crisis, and seeking God’s true mercy with contrite hearts will this chastisement be mitigated.

What happens to the winter figs? Why, they rot in the earth of course. While the Church, glorious Bride of Christ, become more resplendent than ever. For, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!

  Remember, pray the rosary and confound satan!

  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.

 Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!

  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!

  St. Joseph, guardian of the Holy Family, protect our families!

  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!

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