Have you ever heard of Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov? Me neither, but Pope Benedict XVI invited Cardinal Giacomo Biffi to speak on Solovyov’s prophecies during a week long retreat at the Vatican back in 2007.
Came across an article from February, 2007 on Zenit which recounts a retreat preached at the Vatican for Pope Benedict XVI and the Curia by Cardinal Giacomo Biffi. On Tuesday of the week long retreat, the Cardinal based his meditations in part on the work of the Russian philosopher and mystic Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov, considered by many to be the greatest Russian philosopher.
Solovyov, who died in the year 1900 proposed the reunion of Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches under the Pope. He also foretold that the twentieth century would be a century of unparalleled horror and bloodshed. Cardianl Biffi quoted from Solovyov’s work “Three Dialogues on War, Progress and the End of History,” and told his listeners, including Pope Benedict, that:
“the Antichrist presents himself as pacifist, ecologist and ecumenist.” …
“He will convoke an ecumenical council and will seek the consensus of all the Christian confessions, granting something to each one. The masses will follow him, with the exception of small groups of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants,” he said. …
The Cardinal added that Solovyov says in that work: “Days will come in Christianity in which they will try to reduce the salvific event to a mere series of values.” …
Cardinal Biffi warned, “Today, in fact, we run the risk of having a Christianity which puts aside Jesus with His cross and resurrection.” …
The Cardinal said he believes that this is “the danger that Christians face in our days … the Son of God cannot be reduced to a series of good projects sanctioned by the prevailing worldly mentality.”
However, “this does not mean a condemnation of values, but their careful discernment. There are absolute values, such as goodness, truth, beauty,” Cardinal Biffi then distinguished those absolute values from the relative values of the secular world, such as solidarity, love of peace and respect for nature.
If the relative values are allowed to become absolute, uprooting or even opposing the proclamation of the event of salvation, then these values become an instigation to idolatry and obstacles on the way of salvation.”
Cardinal Biffi affirmed that “if Christianity — on opening itself to the world and dialoguing with all — dilutes the salvific event, it closes itself to a personal relationship with Jesus and places itself on the side of the Antichrist.”
Cardinal Biffi had been speaking about Solvyov’s prophecies on the anti-Christ for several years. In March, 2000, the BBC reported that Cardinal Biffi had recently spoken of Solvyov’s predictions of the horrors of the twentieth century. After listing the Nazi Holocaust, the Turkish genocide, and Stalin’s purges, Cardinal Biffi mentioned that the twentieth century had also witnessed a sexual revolution with unparalleled vulgarity and shamelessness. This has taken a quantum leap towards the inferno in our bold, new world of the 21st century, hasn’t it? We have have grotesque men dressed up freakishly as “Drag Queens” “entertaining” little children in our public libraries, paid for by our tax dollars. And a so-called conservative president who endorses the diabolic deception of the LGBTQ etc. agenda.
Solovyov was not Catholic and held to many errors, but he seemed to have correctly intuited the secularization of the faith. It makes one wonder if it is this Pope who intends to call another Vatican Council, as foretold by Solovyov. At a minimum, Pope Francis . intends to complete the wreckage of the faith at his Pan-Amazon Synod next month in Rome, to be quickly followed up by the apostate German Bishops. Remember Kasper’s statement that Pope Francis knows he can only put things in motion. In that way, his role may be much like John XXIII, another pope who simply got the ball rolling, also irreversibly changing the Church.
Solovyov’s prediction of an ecumenical church based on the environment and worldly concerns reminded me of something Malachi Martin said in 1990 when speaking about the incursion of New Age paganism into Catholic teaching. Here is what he said:
“The New Age is built on one principle … that mankind, without religion and religious authorities is able to build a paradise on earth. … God is the father of earth … of fruits and flowers … of lambs, gardens, trees and meadows … there is no pie in the sky.” He then said, “The New Age sounds very democratic, very compassionate and very human. The trouble is, the message of Christ is not democratic … it is supernatural. It is meant to prepare us for eternity. So the New Age is the most subtle of attacks on the Church.” (Kingdom of Darkness, Triumph Communications)
It’s been about 25 years since Father Martin spoke those words, I wonder what he would think of this Pope’s New Age encyclical? And I wonder why Pope Benedict was so intrigued with Cardinal Biffi’s meditations on the Antichrist. Lots to wonder over, isn’t there?
If you recall, recently Maike Hickson reported in Lifesite News (here) that Pope Bergoglio’s mentor, Leonardo Boff, disclosed that,
Boff said in an interview in 2016: “The imposition of “silentium obsequiosum” in 1985 by the Vatican forbade me from speaking and writing. That is when I began to study ecology, Earth science, and their relation to human activity. This coincided with an invitation to participate in a small, international group convened by Mikhail Gorbachev and Steven Rockefeller to explore universal values and principles essential for saving Earth from the multiple threats she faces.”
In her article, Hickson quotes Boff as claiming that even though he was laicised and “silenced” he continued to offer Mass and administer the sacraments. Thus, a perfect candidate for the inner circle of Pope Francis.
Note the roles of Gorbachev and Rockefeller in this globalist initiative now taken up with such fervor by the Vatican. The “errors of Russia” are alive and well in the ecology movement, as evidenced by Gorbachev’s Green Cross movement. The United States government vacated its Presidium complex just in time for it to be available for Mr. Gorbachev right after the staged downfall of the Soviet empire. Indeed, Mr. Gorbachev has enjoyed the full support of the elite ruling class in America and the UK since the beginning. A resource for this is the Christopher Story book on “The New Underworld Order”. It is available from archive.org. I do not recommend the book due to its numerous flaws but found it useful regarding the Marxist/ecology movement.
Note: The surname Solovyov used here seems to be the customary one, but Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov is also referred to as, Solov’ëv, or Soloviev and other variants. Solovyov’s books are available through Abe Books (abebooks.com) and some are downloadable through archive.org.
Another aspect of the Solovyov prophecies is that he points out the error of the Orthodox rejection of the papacy. I believe you may profit from considering that this orthodox rejection of the papacy is the original, spiritual “error of Russia” which opened Russia to the second, more secular, error of Marxism/Leninism (dialectical materialism).
Marxism did not originate in Russia, but in Germany, from Illuminati/Masonic roots. Russia’s contribution was the anti-Roman, Orthodox error, which weakened the faith and allowed the Church to be subservient to the State, thus committing the Satanic reversal of the Divine Order.
To be clear, the original error of Russia was a spiritual one, the rejection of the keystone of the faith, the Papacy. This spiritual error provided the opening for the satanic incursion of Marxism which has now infected the world and all the “churches”, including especially the new Church of the Bergoglian Reformation.
It is especially important to understand that Christ founded His Church, the only Church, on the keystone of the Papacy, and this papacy depends totally upon the grace which comes from the Church’s Founder and true head, Jesus Christ, through the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God. The way to get a “good Pope” is to earn one, that is, to obey Christ and His Mother in humility and charity. If we refuse to do that, but instead seek to use our own prideful methods, we will not only fail, we will cause much greater suffering and cause the loss of many. many souls.
Again, there is no way to obtain relief from the intolerable pain of the usurper in the Vatican, except by turning to the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts in penance, in reparation and in renewed, loving obedience. No one, even a Bishop or Cardinal, can simply proclaim that the Pope was not validly elected and call for his deposition. Our Lady said, (and she means it!) the triumph is hers – believe it.
This move by Pope Francis and his wrecking crew may precipitate some interesting events. But most will sleep on . . .
Pray the Rosary and confound Satan and those who serve him.
† 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!
† O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse thee!
† St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
† St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Please pray the Rosary, make the First Saturdays of reparation and promote this devotion, so many souls depend on it. It is the only way we shall obtain the Consecration of Russia!
~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!
