Slash and burn, reboot

Contrarian that I am, the utter indifference to my post yesterday has encouraged me to re-post today, with additional material.

Slash and burn agriculture is the process of cutting down the vegetation in a particular plot of land, setting fire to the remaining foliage, and using the ashes to provide nutrients to the soil for the use of planting food crops.

Recently, a kind and gentle reader remarked, “it is not surprising that we see the ground being prepared, tilled so to speak, in order to receive the seed of the consecration.”

Fresh, new growth springs from the ashes.

I’ve taken some time to consider this reader’s thoughtful comment and concluded that the ground will be prepared by a slightly different method. In the slash and burn method, as detailed above, what is hindering the restoration of the faith and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the glut of arrogant, disobedient and indifferent catholics who now occupy the Church, as laity and above all, as consecrated leaders, who conspire against her and serve the lord of this world.  By His usual effective methods, I believe that God will clear away the debris, and in these ashes, by the humility and obedience of the survivors, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Church will rise again. The chastened Pope will consecrate Russia, and a chastened Russia will welcome this.

Pope John Paul II said many years ago in Fulda that it was too late to avert the Chastisement. And it is. However, it is never too late to turn to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Those who do will survive the coming events with their souls intact, as Our Lady has promised us. With our prayers and penances, we may hope to mitigate the Chastisement as it affects each of us personally, and we should earnestly pray that we will be able to draw fallen away Catholics to return to the faith and be saved amidst this chaos and general destruction of the faith, for that is what we are commanded to do. As St. Michael, the Angel of Fatima told us, “Pray, pray always, and make of everything a sacrifice.”

I respect the faith of the dear and kind souls who truly believe that Putin is some sort of sign that we are progressing towards the Consecration because he is such a “strong Christian leader”. Where do they get that information? From writers in the media. In the media. The same media that they know has misled us so often. And they obviously believe that Putin is too childlike and innocent to use the media to mislead anyone. Remember, “Satan himself transformeth himself into an angel of light.” (2 Cor. 11, 14)

In the United States, soon there will be an election. Or possibly not. Either way, the world will never be the same. The majority of Catholics in this country have never obeyed Our Lady of Fatima, and yet they believe that they can remedy the disastrous situation of their country by secular means.  I do not ask you to believe me other than please believe Our Lady’s numerous warnings – They are backed up by the Holy Scriptures and by Church approved private revelations. Those who seek positive signs that “the ground is being prepared for the Consecration” risk misleading the faithful, for the only signs given will be those foretold already.

On October 13, 1917, Our Lady of Fatima warned, “People must amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins.”  Fifty-six years later, and  13 years after Pope John disobeyed her, Our Lady appeared at Akita, Japan on October  13, 1973, just after America’s Supreme Court opened the floodgates for abortion. At that time, her warning was even more severe:

“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.”

Beginning 99 years ago, Our Lady stated quite firmly the need for repentance and amendment. This was all but completely ignored and then officially denied by the highest authority in the Church, Pope John XXIII .

Our Lady then appeared at Akita because she had been silenced by the Vicar of Christ, and by the time she appeared there, America was preparing to spread one of the worst errors of Russia throughout the world. Her warning was thus even more severe, as we saw above. And yet, Catholics were indifferent still. The Church ignored Akita and abortion, satan’s own sacrament, spread like wildfire all over the world.

After Fatima, after Akita, what will God’s answer be? Will He fight fire with fire?

Since the solemn warning in 1973, has the world, has the Church in any way improved? It seems to me that far from improving, the hierarchy under Pope Francis is more blatant and hardened against Our Lady and her message than ever before. But then again, I am a contrarian.

Again, which way are we progressing? Better? Or worse? 

In other words, are we turning away from the brink, and preparing the ground for the Consecration, or are we right at the brink of the Chastisement?

Please, I’d like to know what you really think.

  1. Thank you for all of your efforts. I think you are right. We have been sold a bill of goods about Putin, no one knows for sure his heart, however I believe our Lady’s warnings. I have talked to people about Fatima, Akita and they have either denied they are accurate or they have said because the messages are private revelations, we aren’t required to believe…..this attitude drives me mad. These people are living in these times and can see, hear and read and yet they deny what is right in front of their faces. May our Lady protect us all and our innocent children.

    Enjoying, just found this site. Thankyou!
    There is no need to worry/argue about Putin or really anyone’s individual soul or intentions. (There is no benefit to judgment or guessing, even educated insightful guessing) — Only prayer and, as you’ve said so well, living our own daily lives as our Blessed Mother has asked us to.

  3. To ATW and other readers who have voiced similar concerns.

    After much prayerful review of this this post, cannot see where it says anything that I can correct or disavow.

    The consensus is that I must be in error here, although I feel more strongly than ever that Putin, whom you do not mention, is being misrepresented by many in the traditional Catholic media. And that it is harmful to preparing the faithful spiritually.

    But I have been “converted” at least insofar as I will be silent now.

    I have not many more posts anyway. Our post for the 5th visit of Our Lady of Fatima, on September 13th, will speak of one aspect you mentioned.

    In all things, may God’s will be done. May God have mercy on us, every one.

    Dear Evensong,

    You ask the question, “are we turning away from the brink, and preparing the ground for the Consecration, or are we right at the brink of the Chastisement?”

    In my opinion, the answer is “yes.”

    We, especially in the West, are hurtling toward the brink and the Chastisement. Of that there can be no doubt. Yet, at the same time, there are voices, such as yours, and others too, who proclaim the message of Fatima, practice the First Saturday devotions, participate in the Rosary Crusade, consecrate themselves, their families, and even entire cities, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These people are praying for and preparing the ground for the decisive consecration – of Russia.

    And amid the forces of the Chastisement that may soon sweep out of the East, some people also see signs of a preparation to receive the Consecration. Again, I do not, in all honesty, see a contradiction. You caution that, at this point in time and until she is properly consecrated, Russia will be God’s chosen instrument of chastisement. You are correct in this, and people should not delude themselves otherwise.

    In discussing yesterday’s post with my brother, he observed that God could indeed be preparing to slash and burn in the West, as you suppose, while at the same time tilling the soil in the East in another manner. That seems to be what some people claim to see.

    I don’t know if I have contributed much to the issue, but you did ask.

    Thanks again for your work. I find it very helpful and insightful.

    • Thank you, ATW. Today, I have learned much from you!
      I needed to hear that!
      And now, will take that to heart.
      May Our Lady keep you close, always, to her Immaculate Heart,
      evensong
