If … If Not …

“If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she 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. In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

That is to say, that one way or another, God’s justice will prevail, despite our willful disobedience. Nowhere is this more apparent that in the United States of America during this tragic pre-election melodrama.

The following post is my final attempt to address repeated requests of some readers to clarify the spiritual implications of the current political turmoil in the United States.

“And the second angel sounded the trumpet: and as it were a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood: [9] And the third part of those creatures died, which had life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed.” (Apoc. 8, 8)

Although the above has been applied appropriately to Islam, in our times it is more accurately applied to Russia. Indeed, Our Lady’s last appearance at Fatima on October 13, 1917, was just 25 days prior to the Bolshevik Revolution of November 7, 1917 (which was October 25 in the Julian or Old Style calendar by which it is referred to as the “October Revolution”).

As Father Sylvester Berry points out in his book, The Apocalypse of St. John, the burning mountain is most certainly a country and with the hindsight we have now, 99 years after Our Lady of Fatima warned that if Russia was was not consecrated,  she (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.”

Fr. Berry:  “The vision shows that, despite the preaching of the Gospel, some great nation will bring war and bloodshed upon a large portion of mankind. It also predicts great persecutions against the Church. Nations will seek to destroy the Church at all hazards.”

In another earlier post, Islam and the Errors of Russia, we explained the connection between the two evils, Islam and Russia. This will all be clear soon, as the chastisement reveals its contours more clearly. But for now, just note: Blessed Elena Aiello prophesied in the year 1960 (note well the date) that “Russia will battle America and will overcome Europe. … will raise her flag over the Dome of St. Peter’s.”  Indeed, some have noted that with Pope Francis, we already have a marxist pope, since he currently owns a symbol of the errors of Russia, that is, a hammer and sickle on which Christ Our Saviour hangs crucified.

Additionally, Sister Lucia herself told Dr. William Walsh, in answer to his inquiry whether the United States of America would be overcome by Communism unless the Consecration was done, “Yes”.

Let’s continue with Father Berry’s remarks on the end of Chapter 8:

“The prophecies of this chapter have been fulfilled many times in the past. No doubt they will often be verified in the future. It should be noted, however, that a progressive accumulation of evils is predicted. At first, it affects individuals only (Apoc. 8: 7). Then a nation or an entire church is involved (Apoc. 8: 8), and a number of great heretics fall away from the Faith (Apoc. 8: 10). Finally, the whole Church suffers from a weakening of Faith and discipline (Apoc. 8: 12). This gradual progression of evil, this “mystery of iniquity” (2 Thess. 2: 7), which was working even in the days of St. Paul will finally usher in the Antichrist. 13. An eagle appears in mid-heaven, proclaiming three great woes to follow the sounding of the remaining trumpets. Two interpretations are permissible. The first recognizes in the eagle a powerful nation which shall be an instrument of God’s judgments upon the world. The other interpretation sees in the eagle a symbol of new preachers of the Gospel. God raises up new saints or religious orders to arouse the faithful to renewed faith and zeal in His service. Nevertheless, three great evils shall afflict the Church before her final victory over the world and the devil. Whatever interpretation be adopted, there can be no doubt that this verse heralds the beginning of a new and important epoch in the history of the Church.”

This quote is taken directly from the KIC edition of Father Sylvester Berry’s essential book, “The Apocalypse of St. John”. This ebook is only $0.99, and is helpful to understand the events unfolding. Please bear in mind always, that the Apocalypse – and this poor writing of mine! – is not meant to frighten or dishearten.  God reveals His will to us in His sacred scriptures so that as we see events unfold we can understand that He is always in charge, no matter how dire the situation may be, we know that in the end, His will triumphs. To this end, just before satan took Russia by bloody force, in the Revolution of “Red October”, He sent His most perfect creature, the Immaculata, with a warning and a promise:

“If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she 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. In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

For those who asked:

Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who loves us so much, despite our indifference, pride and insatiable taste for the iniquities of the world, gave us first His Sacred Heart and then His own pure and perfect Mother in these last days to show us the path and bring us safely through these times.

Down through all the ages, we see the tragedy of man’s refusal to obey the clear and simple commands of God. Our disobedience of God’s law for us brings chaos, violence and despair in this life and eternal damnation in the next. This is the initial part of the message of Fatima, when Our Lady showed the children souls falling into hell and warned of yet more wars. Our Lady offered a very simple plan which she clearly stated was God’s will. Every Pope since then has failed and numerous popes have actually insulted her in sundry subtle ways.

The results of this disobedience are all around us for those who will take off their ideological blinders and see. Today, especially in the United States, the home of the heresy of Americanism, Catholics devote much time and energy to election year politics, in the admirable hope of making America a better place to live and raise their families. It is suicidal for any Catholic commentator to disparage that admirable activity in any way. And so, I will simply remind you all that until Catholics humbly and obediently return to Fatima, you can all pull as many levers as you will, your efforts are doomed to fail.

For those who say that I am a pacifist or opposed to voting: By all means vote, vote like the democrats, early and often. But nothing will avail without the spiritual renewal which can only be achieved by a resurgence in devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and her full message of Fatima. There are no short-cuts.

The peace you seek will only come from a humble, contrite heart and you cannot achieve that without the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Our Lord Jesus Christ has told us that. But His message is disregarded in the eagerness to recapture the greatness of America.  No country presently on the face of this earth will ever be great until its people turn in shame, and acknowledge their guilt and helplessness before God and ask to be delivered from this satanic culture of death, this foul stench of corruption which sickens if it were possible, even the demons in hell.

If we do not repent, we shall perish. The battle is spiritual first and foremost. Our Lady told us this. Some write me, “But I do all that I can, I wear the scapular, pray the rosary, make reparation in all my daily activities, observe First Saturdays.” Yes, and now comes the bitter truth, we see all around us those so mired in this world that they simply cannot make time to obey Our Lady’s requests. We see esteemed Catholic Bishops who have spent years disregarding Our Lady of Fatima’s requests, who nevertheless expend considerable effort to induce Catholics to vote. By their actions they do not serve Our Lady, but lead souls astray. As long as we who are faithful to Our Lady are so vastly outnumbered, it is likely that we will see little earthly improvement.

However, even in the worst-case scenario, when all the Catholics vote and reap the result of their efforts, and America and the other nations of the world erupt into the inevitable chaos that any observant person knows is coming, regardless of who wins, it will be those who are spiritually prepared who weather this storm successfully, that is, attain to salvation along with those entrusted to us. Perhaps, at this stage, the best that we can hope for is to remain in the grace of God, to remain loyal children of Mary, placed by her around His throne.

You who frequent this site know that the Chastisement is gathering in force, you know what is required. You know that we are at the foot of the Cross. We cannot have the Resurrection and Pentecost, any other way. Another way of expressing it is that which was pointed to by Sister Lucia:

From Apocalypse, Chapter 12:

And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars:  And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.

Yes, she is in pain to be delivered. The Church needs cleansing by blood and the Spirit from time to time. And the holy martyrs in heaven await the fulfillment of their number, those who will be born of blood and the Holy Spirit. Then sorrow will turn to rejoicing.

Even as I prepare to post this, I sadly acknowledge that, like my own children, you must learn this for yourselves, and so I pray for you all.

May God bless us all and may our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, keep us close to her Immaculate Heart.

“Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe, and do penance. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.” (Apoc. 3,3).

Pray the Rosary!

  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.

Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

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