Fatima, Akita and the Chastisement, II

Please, if you haven’t already, be sure to read Dr. Roberto de Mattei’s article on Rorate Caeli here..
It is an excellent synopsis of  the Message of Fatima placed within its historical context. Hopefully, many will read it, and I also will post more soon.

As requested, a repost::

In our previous post, we briefly outlined the Blessed Virgin Mary’s appearances at Fatima on October 13, 1917 and at Akita on October 13, 1973. Today we consider the meanings behind the rich symbols of these two visits from the Queen of Heaven.

Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?
. Grant that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin, give me strength against thy enemies!

The Rosary, Foremost Message of Fatima and Akita

In both, our Blessed Mother called us to the Rosary. In fact, at Fatima, she identified herself as Our Lady of the Rosary, the name by which she calls her children to pray to her. And at each visit to Fatima, she requested the daily Rosary. In her last appearance at Akita, Oct. 13, 1973, Our Lady stressed the importance of the Rosary, saying,

“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.”

Dear Readers, this is urgent! Never before have we needed the Rosary as we do now – and yet never before has the Church been so resistant. False devotions, distractions, have been allowed to detract from the Rosary. For your salvation and the salvation of those entrusted to you:

Please commit to Our Lady right now, to pray the traditional Rosary, that is the Rosary as it existed when she requested it at Fatima and Akita, and as she confirmed to us with the beautiful visions of the little shepherds of Fatima on October 13, 1917. That is,  the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries plus the Fatima Decade Prayer.

Each day, live and pray all these mysteries of Our Lady’s Rosary. Do not get sidetracked by other devotions, no matter how much appeal they may have for you. Her children must serve her by obedience!

I love the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but if obligations cause me to cut back some devotions, I omit a bit of this beautiful Office, rather than cut back on my quiet time with Our Lady or her Rosary. For that is truly our lifeline to Mary, by which she channels grace and healing to this poor suffering world. Despite what Pope Francis tells us, the greatest evil is not inequality, it is sin. Yes, there is no greater evil than sin.

Poverty, pain, horrid death, no, none of these is the true evil, for sin is the origin of all suffering. Sin alone is the greatest evil. The Immaculata’s active purity – for it is not some passive quality – some lack, no,  the Purity of the Immaculata is the most powerful force against sin and suffering.  God has decreed that it is through her Immaculate Heart that we receive the graces essential for our salvation, for she is mediatrix of all graces. The modernist Church rejects this truth to its own damnation.

By our Rosaries, we combat the filth invading the Church. This filth is not only the human, physical filth of the unnatural lusts consuming these poor sick priests and prelates, it is the spiritual filth of their perverted faith, for they have replaced the clear, beautiful faith given us by our Savior Jesus Christ, with the false faith of Judas, Luther and the other servants of Satan, the implacable enemies of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church.

Fatima, Akita and the Chastisement

Today is the 98th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun that marked Our Lady’s Sixth Visit to Fatima. it is also the 42nd anniversary of Our Lady’s visit to Akita. Akita’s message seems primarily to emphasize the warnings of Fatima, but it too, failed or rather the Church failed to heed it.

On October 13, 1917, a miracle occurred, witnessed by between 70,000 and 100,000 people. The miracle defied the laws of physics and was verified by witnesses who were Masons, atheists and anti-Christians as well as by the faithful. The day, month and hour had been predicted before hand.

When Our Lady appeared to the children, Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia at this Sixth Apparition, her final words to them were, “…I am the Lady of the Rosary. Continue to say the Rosary every day. …. People must amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins. Then, growing sadder, “They must not offend Our Lord any more for He is already too much offended.”

As Our Lady took leave of the children and rose, she spread her hands, which emitted brilliant rays of light. As she pointed towards the sun, the light from her hands brightened the very sun itself. At this precise moment, the crowds gathered there were astonished to see the dark clouds dispersed and the sky clear. And then the sun, which appeared as a brightly polished mother of pearl disc, began to spin, zig-zag and throw off brilliant flashes of light, blue and violet and golden yellow. Then it suddenly began hurtling towards the earth, while the crowds screamed and fell to their knees in  terror. Just as suddenly as it started, it was over and the sun resumed its place. As people sighed with relief and thanked God, all were amazed that the muddy field was dry and their own shoes and clothes were dry and clean. This is a vivid and clear visual lesson in the power which God grants to His beloved Mary. She gave brightness to the sun, she commanded the sun and it obeyed her. The additional miracle of the entire Cova and all the multitudes drying out and becoming clean in a mere 15 minutes is just as unexplainable a miracle. There is a message here which we will return to in next post.

Now, let’s consider the message of our Lady’s words to the children. The first point we notice is the emphasis on the Rosary; as she had promised, she told them her name: Our Lady of the Rosary, Then she urged them to pray the Rosary daily. There is a very important message here, to which we will return shortly. Next, “People must amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins.”  Compare this message of amending our lives, begging God for pardon for our sins and stop offending Him, compare this to the constant message of our Merciful® Pontiff, welcoming all sinners, “meeting them where they are” and  accompanying them, dialoging endlessly. Recently one of the Synod leaders proclaimed that they are eliminating the distinction between sin and the sinner. This is modernese for abolishing the concept of sin, ergo, no need to repent, no need to amend our lives.

So what do you think? After 98 years, how do we stand on obeying this Woman clothed with the Sun, who commands the sun and the forces of nature and they obey her?

On October 13, 1973, 56 years after that 1917 visit and 13 years after the 1960 deadline had passed without obedience, Our Lady appeared again. It was a subtler, but sterner message, no spectacular solar events, just blood, sweat and tears, symbols of suffering, and a dire warning. Our Lady of Akita’s message on this day, 42 years ago is even more relevant now in this time of the Synod, which afflicts entire Mystical Body of Christ so grievously.

The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.
The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.

Our Lady of Akita’s Message

“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.”

“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.”

“The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.”

“. . . Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.

Well, that was in 1973 and much has changed in these 42 years hasn’t it? It is all too clear that the faithful have not repented and the only changes have been for the worse. How many prelates have gone through the world, rallying Catholics to the messages of Fatima and Akita?  Did John Paul II warn those gathered in Assisi or the crowds who thronged to greet him everywhere he went, “Repent, stop offending God, do penance, make reparation, or you will all go down to hell!”? No, he did not even pray the Fatima decade prayer. He could have issued a Moto Proprio instituting the First Saturdays as specially indulgenced days when offered as Our Lady requested. Nope, he didn’t do that either. Did Pope Benedict, who said that Akita was essentially the same as Fatima, command Catholics to perform the Reparation ordered by either of those two appearances? Why not? Why has no pope done even a modicum of what Our Lady asked for?

Our next post will address those questions and explore the meanings of the symbols. We’ll look at the messages within the context of the Synod and the ongoing revolution in the Church today. It’s clear that the time allotted to us to repent and amend our lives is nearly up. Let us make good use of the present time, for the darkness comes.

Fatima, Akita and the Chastisement, II

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, be our salvation, save sinners!

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!

Fatima, Akita and the Rosary

Our Fatima cycle is fast approaching. To prepare, we offer a post which summarizes many some aspects of the message of Fatima.

In a previous post, we briefly outlined the Blessed Virgin Mary’s appearances at Fatima on October 13, 1917 and at Akita on October 13, 1973. That final visit at Akita, Japan, occurred 13 years after the Pope refused to release the secret, in disobedience to Our Lady of Fatima. Today we consider the meanings behind the rich symbols of these two visits from the Queen of Heaven.

The Rosary, Foremost Message of Fatima and Akita

In both, our Blessed Mother called us to the Rosary. In fact, at Fatima, she identified herself as Our Lady of the Rosary, the name by which she calls her children to pray to her. And at each visit to Fatima, she requested the daily Rosary. In her last appearance at Akita, Oct. 13, 1973, Our Lady stressed the importance of the Rosary, saying,

“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.”

Never before have we needed the Rosary as we do now – and yet never before has the Church been so resistant. False devotions, distractions, have been allowed to detract from the Rosary. For your salvation and the salvation of those entrusted to you:

Please commit to Our Lady right now, to pray the traditional Rosary, that is the Rosary as it existed when she requested it at Fatima and Akita, and as she confirmed to us with the beautiful visions of the little shepherds of Fatima on October 13, 1917. That is,  the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries plus the Fatima Decade Prayer.

Each day, live and pray all these mysteries of Our Lady’s Rosary. Do not get sidetracked by other devotions, no matter how much appeal they may have for you. Her children must serve her by obedience!

I love to pray the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but if obligations cause me to cut back some devotions, I omit a bit of this beautiful Office, rather than cut back on my quiet time with Our Lady and her Rosary. For that is truly our lifeline to Mary, by which she channels grace and healing to this suffering world. Despite what Pope Francis tells us, the greatest evil is not inequality, it is sin. There is no greater evil than sin.

Poverty, pain, horrid death, no, none of these is the true evil, for sin is the origin of all suffering. Sin alone is the greatest evil. The Immaculata’s active purity – for it is not some passive quality – some lack, no,  the Purity of the Immaculata is the most powerful force against sin and suffering.  God has decreed that it is through her Immaculate Heart that we receive the graces essential for our salvation, for she is mediatrix of all graces. The modernist Church rejects this truth to its own damnation.

By our Rosaries, we combat the filth invading the Church. This filth is not only the human, physical filth of the unnatural lusts consuming these poor sick priests and prelates, it is the spiritual filth of their perverted faith, for they have replaced the clear, beautiful faith given us by our Savior Jesus Christ, with the false faith of Judas, Luther and the other servants of Satan, the implacable enemies of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church.

And so the first message of Fatima is to pray the Rosary, not a modern substitute, the real Rosary of Our Lady of the Rosary. Pray it, help others to know, to love and to pray it.

 The Miracle of the Sun and the Chastisement

False Science

Today, science is widely accepted, even among many in the Church, as an authority superseding that of the Church, for it is said that we must be realistic after all; we are children of this modern scientific age. The Pope’s embarrassing encyclical, Laudato Si was a tribute to the post-Vatican II Church’s capitulation to the dogma of the Lord of this World, which is Godless scientism. And like all Godless things it deceives mankind.

How to combat this? Why with the enemy of Satan, She who crushes his head, the Immaculate Mother of our Savior, the truly humble handmaid of God, Mary. She provided our weak and doubtful natures a vivid proof of her power over the forces of nature on October 13, 1917 with the Miracle of the Sun.  In this astounding feat, she proved that she is more brilliant than the sun and that the sun obeys her will.

The lesson for our day is even more astounding, but was not much noted at the time. The field of the Cova had been ploughed and then had gotten utterly drenched in a steady downpour. Thousands of people and their horses and donkeys had packed into it, sinking into the ankle-deep mud. Everyone was literally soaked to the bone and their shoes and clothes caked with the mire. it was not possible to be in that place, at that time and not become befouled by the mud of the pasture mixed with the filth of animal waste.

Yet after Our Lady’s Miracle, the multitudes found themselves and the muddy Cova now dry, with no mud on them.

The Sun prefigures the Church

In prophecy, the sun is a figure of the Church. The sun, like the Church, is something we were accustomed to as a certainty, unfailingly dependable. In the Fatima miracle, the sun began exhibiting all the colors of the rainbow. Now, the rainbow is a Divine sign, given to us by a loving Father. Yet today this beautiful sign – the rainbow – has been co-opted by  the forces of satan to corrupt the Church, thus offending God even more. When Our Lady performed this stunning miracle, she was affirming her control over these pernicious forces. She knew that the significance of the rainbow colors would be overlooked by Catholics at that time, but it is obviously a sign to us today. For today, we are helpless before the destroyer pope, as he grimly goes about promoting and protecting sodomite prelates and assures the victims of priest sex abuse that “God made you that way”.

The sun, always so dependable, like the stalwart, unchanging  Church, suddenly broke free of its moorings and hurtled towards the crowd. Even faithless unbelievers who had come to scoff, were heard praying devoutly at that terrifying moment. That was a warning, even more clear now with our 20/20 hindsight, that the Church, securely moored in the faith, would become unmoored if it disobeyed the Queen of Heaven. And we can see the truth of this under the current pope as he grimly works to sever the Church from her Divine Head, Jesus Christ. As this pope grovels around on hands and knees kissing the feet of the world, he casts out Christ the King and raises the banner of Satan’s faith.

 

But the Immaculata, Mother of Mercy, spared the crowd that day, and in the flash of an instant, restored the sun and eradicated all of the mud and filth. And she stands ready now to remedy all the errors that plague the Church. She alone can restore the Church to its rightful place and cast the filth from the Church, restoring all things in Christ, the King.  Please, 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.

 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, protect our priests!

  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!

~  by evensong, for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.

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

Chastisement

When we scan the distance, we may be misled by mirages, and when we attempt to predict the future we can be misled as well. In attempting to correlate various insights from well-informed priests, private revelations along with Holy Scripture and more recent revelations such as Our Lady’s apparitions to LaSalette, Fatima and Akita, much danger of error enters in. I offer my thoughts with that warning. I may be wrong in my opinion that Pope Francis is an apostate pope who is basically a marxist seeking to destroy the Church. I believe that his appearance and his actions here at this time represent an important step in the progression of the spiritual chastisement that has come about as a result of the disobedience of the Popes.

The entire reason that the most Blessed Virgin Mary appeared at Fatima was because she was serving God, sent by God to call His children back from their proud and disobedient ways.  For it was disobedience, driven by pride that drove Lucifer from heaven. And it was disobedience, driven by pride, that drove Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. In His loving providence, Our Father sent us His only Begotten Son to save us by sacrificing His life for us. It was His will that the very Body and Blood of our redemption was from the Blessed Virgin Mary, and so it came to pass that Mary’s humble obedience made our redemption possible.

With the passage of centuries, faith grew cold and disobedience sprang up in the Church; pride corrupted many from laity to priests and even Bishops, Cardinals and Popes. God’s providence sent the Blessed Virgin Mary to teach us again to be humble and to obey. This was her message at Fatima.

Yes, you know all this already. but have you fully appreciated that God, through Our Lady of Fatima, is calling the Church to return to this humility, this obedience?

In a recently discarded post, I attempted to recap the three visits of the Angel and the six visits of Our Lady of Fatima in order to show that the message began with the Angel’s urging to pray and offer sacrifices and culminated in the astounding, profound Eucharistic Vision and Eucharistic Prayer of Reparation. This series of apparitions was to form the basis for the visits of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Third Visit of Our Lady of Fatima, on July 13, 1917 was the central one, the others are either prefatory or emphasise it. The last visit, the Miracle of the Sun is to help us believe the message of the Third Visit.

When we consider the entire nine visits, certain points become clear. They are:

. Offer prayer and sacrifice, making of everything an opprtunity for offering reparation to God for sins and for the conversion of sinners.

. Accept and bear with submission the sufferings God will send you.

. Pray the Rosary daily.

. The importance of making reparation for the sacrilege and outrage to the Holy Eucharist, and the indifference shown to these abuses to the Sacrifice of the Mass and the most Blessed Sacrament.

† . Persistence and patience in visiting our Blessed Mother.

† . Sacrifice yourself for sinners, “O Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary’ “.

† . Hell exists and many, many go there. To save them, God wants the Church to establish devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

† . If we obey her, many souls will be saved, peace will come, Russia will be converted and there will be peace, this is repeated for emphasis.

† . If she is not obeyed and people continue to offend God, a worse war will break out in the reign of Pius XI, God will punish the world for its crimes by means of war, famines and persecutions against the Church and the Holy Father, 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.

† . To prevent the chastisements, she will come to ask for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.

† . “In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, and she will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Another portion of the message contained the famous lines, “In Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved, etc. [This marks the third part of the secret, not yet not revealed]  Do not tell this to anybody.”

The reason for the above summary is so that we can have a ready reference to the essential themes. Even a child easily understands the simple messages, the call for prayer, sacrifice, the need to console God for these horrible sacrileges, outrages and the crass indifference to them. Anyone should be able to see the importance of fulfilling the simple requests  to spread devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for the First Saturdays of Reparation, which she promises to reward so richly. Much has been made of the difficulty in making the Consecration of Russia. But had the previous requests (establish devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for First Fridays of Reparation) been obeyed, there would have been such a profusion of graces and miracles that the Consecration of Russia would easily have been accomplished.

Now something important must be noted here. The war spoken of in the reign of Pius XI, that is, World War II ocurred as Our Lady told us, because people won’t stop offending God. Now, that worst offense is for the Pope to refuse to obey the Mother of God. Our Lady of Fatima warned that war is punishment for sin. The offenses trigger the war, which is part of the material chastisement of war, famine and persecutions. We must not forget that the chastisements will continue until obedience is either given or extracted by the ongoing miseries.

The missing portion, (the “etc.”) contains, as we have gathered from those who know, the spiritual chastisement, that is, the massive apostasy from the faith which “begins at the top”, which is why I ventured the hotly contested claim that the current occupant may be an apostate. It appears clear by now, that his words and actions do not appear Christian.

The reason I have taken the time to reiterate all this is that at this time, some well-respected Catholics much more knowledgeable that I have made some remarkably erroneous statements. And many commenters approve of them enthusiastically.

Points in conclusion:

† . The chastisement is increasing in magnitude and it is both material and spiritual. Those who do not repent and consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will find it nearly impossible to withstand the satanic onslaught.

† . There will be a war such as not previously been seen nor imagined and natural disasters of great magnitude.

† . Russia has indeed been the source of the errors which beset us. Communism is defined by Josef Stalin as Marxism/Leninism, which is further defined as dialectical and historical materialism. It is satanic and atheistic and Jorge Mario Bergoglio has consistently displayed his acceptance of it as have many, many priests and prelates.

† . Indeed, Western society, such as it is, is suffused with dialectical materialism. The West has not been Christian for some time, although most Catholics refuse to believe this.

I am eager that the truth be told, that issues be brought before you clearly. Satanic marxism reigns in the Church and in Europe and Asia and the countries of the West.  It will triumph at least in appearance and we will be scattered and defeated. In the Church, satan seeks to first attack the Blessed Sacrament with sacrilege, and then destroy it altogether. To this end he has corrupted the clergy, especially the hierarchy. Yes, the battle over the family is important, but the battle began with satan’s attack on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Holy Eucharist. That is essential to keep in mind and make reparation for. The same prelates have been oblivious to the decades of massive abuse of the Holy Sacrifice, of the Body and Blood of Christ. They have not obeyed the message of Fatima.

Please, return to the beginning,and re-read or better still reread my posts on the Angel’s message. Then please, pray, sacrifice, adore Him and make of everything you can a reparation. Now is the time to redouble our efforts to obey.

Please, 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.

Daniel and St. Michael

In several recent posts, such as yesterday’s Apocalypse 12, Part II,  I have attempted to prepare such readers as still follow me for the events to come.  Soon, my poor efforts will become irrelevant. This site, Return to Fatima, is totally consecrated to  the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King, and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Church, whether or not anyone ever reads any words written here.  My job is almost complete, thanks be to God, who ordains all for His glory and the salvation of souls.

Tomorrow is September 23, and has been spoken of by others as significant for several reasons. First, we quote from Marianna Bartold, in  “Fatima, the Apocalypse and the Lights of Heaven, Parts 1 &2”  :

The Immaculate Conception, because God hates sin!
O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

“On September 23, 2017, the sun will rise behind the constellation Virgo—an annual event. What is rare and striking about this year is the interaction of the planets Jupiter, Venus, Mars, and Mercury. Last year, on November 20, 2016, Jupiter (the “king” planet) entered the constellation Virgo. In retrograde motion, Jupiter is currently in Virgo’s womb, but exits Virgo on September 23 (after 43 weeks, 6 days or 9.5 months, an over-due gestational length of an unborn baby). On that day, almost directly above the head of Virgo will be Leo (the 12th largest constellation), which includes—but is not limited to—12 brighter lights of heaven, three of them being the planets Venus, Mars, and Mercury. Additionally, the moon will be near (but not directly under) the feet of Virgo.”

Bartold’s skillful narrative weaves together the writings of the Prophet Daniel, the Message of Fatima and the revelation of Akita. The gist of it is that centuries before the coming of Christ, God gave us, in the prophecies of Daniel, important intimations for these latter times.  We know that our Creator, Lord of Heaven and Earth, prepares us for momentous times by prophecies and signs in the heavens.  Many of our brightest writers today believe that the heavenly sign on September 23 is an indication of an event soon to take place.  In Daniel Chapter 12, v.1, which concludes a lengthy prophecy we read:

“But at that time shall Michael rise up, the great prince, who standeth for the children of thy people: and a time shall come such as never was from the time that nations began even until that time. And at that time shall thy people be saved, every one that shall be found written in the book.”

As we read that ancient quote, we recall the more recent words of the Blessed Virgin at Akita. Just as Our Lady gave us a silent prophecy  at Knock to reiterate and emphasize her silenced prophecy at La Salette, Our Lady responded to the  Vatican’s censoring of the prophetic Message of Fatima with the emphatic  doomsday scenario foretold at Akita. Thus she answered Pope John XXIII’s accusation against doomsayers with the very clear warning at Akita. as we discussed in “Fatima, Akita and the Chastisement“:

“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

The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.

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.”

“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.”

“The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.”

“. . . Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.“

Please consider the importance of penance and Rosaries daily in reparation these 21 days from September 23 until October 13.  In her article, Bartold explains the scriptural precedence for this, related to St. Michael.  This may be the last opportunity some of us have to mitigate the severity of the coming trials, not for the world, because that time has past, but for many souls entrusted to us. Right now, our primary objective must be to save souls, and I hope that those of you who read this will heed it for if you ask, it shall be given to you, as Our Lord promised. “Ask and you shall receive that your joy may be full.” (John 16, 23)

In anticipation of the usual detractors,  regardless of what happens or does not happen on October 13, the point here is that deadlines are passing, each of them leaving in their wake yet more wreckage of God’s Covenant with His Chosen People. The devil himself is afoot in  the Vatican with the present occupants/usurpers. With the passing of each opportunity to repent and obey the Mother of God, fresh insults are heaped upon the Crucified.  I trust that most of our readers understand the significance of this.  Please do not be indifferent to our plea! Here is Sister Lucia’s revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ to her regarding the sacrifice and reparation He demands:

After informing her Bishop of Our Lord’s bitter complaints about the limited number of souls in the state of grace who are disposed to deny themselves, she said:

Here is the true penance which the Good Lord requests today.

“The sacrifice which everybody must impose on himself to lead a life of justice in the observance of His law.”

And He desires that this way be clearly made known to souls, for many give to the word “penance” the sense of great austerities, and as they feel neither the strength nor the generosity for that, they get discouraged and let themselves go into a life of lukewarmness and sin.

Lucia reiterated: Our Lord told me:

“The penance that I request and require now is the sacrifice demanded of everybody by the accomplishment of his own duty and the observance of My law.”

Surely all will appreciate the importance of obeying Our Lord in His very small request. So many souls depend on us now. Do not, like Lot’s wife, look back, but stay focused on our goal – to obey . Our Lord and our Blessed Mother without question or hesitation in this time of trial.

My posts along this line have been too numerous to recount. Readers are free to request more information and I will try to help  as I am able. Thank you for reading.

Please, it is never necessary to thank me personally, but preferable to put your time and energy into promoting the message of Fatima, (perhaps, if you think it worthwhile, this blog and others which seek to serve Our Lady) and working with all your heart, mind and soul to live your Consecrations to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

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.

Of Winter Figs and Falling Stars

The following article was originally posted this past January and very few saw it, except for dear and faithful readers who follow us closely. We offer it today because of the ongoing Reformation of Jorge Mario Bergoglio,  Luther’s own pope, who is proceeding to defy our Lord Jesus Christ in His own Church. We are soon to see a worldwide calamity. We must prepare spiritually! I do hope that you attend to this and help others prepare. And now, from last January:

Of Winter Figs and Falling Stars

by evensong

January, 2016

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,

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…” (Fr. Bernard 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.”

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.”

New and Improved

The Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ Our Savior
Corpus Christi

Updated 21 April 2016

The previous  post removed because we were able to make the transfer to our new, improved platform in record time. However, I’m still not fully up to speed, and so we have not updated our site as we had hoped. So we can say the platform is new, but the blog is unfortunately, not improved. And I, too am sadly not the least bit improved!

I am still unable to open the combox, and very far behind on responding to email correspondence. I appreciate subscribers writing with suggestions for improvements, but am unable to post on the many devotions and other revelations suggested. If you find a particular devotion helpful, that is a blessing, but this site promotes one thing, and that is, a call to all true Catholics return to the Immaculate Mother of God’s true Message of Fatima before it is too late.

To this end, I do wholeheartedly support the Church approved apparitions of Our Lady of Good Success, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Our Lady of La Salette, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Knock, and Our Lady of Akita in addition to Our Lady of Fatima. I support wholeheartedly the late Father Gruner’s Fatima Center and support those who also support Father Gruner’s apostolate.

Although I welcome comments by email, in most cases, I am no longer able to respond to each email personally, but will instead, address them in posts, as I am able. To those who have offered me encouragement and prayers, thank you! I pray for you all. To those who feel dismayed that I will not post on this or that devotion, I apologise and beg forgiveness. To those who write let me know how despicable I am, I love you and I agree, I am despicable, I will redouble my efforts to serve Our Lord Jesus Christ with all my being, and try my best to better conform to His grace.

Our focus the next few months will be to point out in clearest possible terms, the urgency of the situation we find ourselves in and the quickest and simplest way to prepare. This is something that cannot be stressed enough. God’s wrath is bearing down and we must, absolutely must become confirmed in our total consecration to the Immaculata. Do not misunderstand: Just because we are assured that the Immaculata will triumph, that God will restore the Church, does not at all, not in any way, give you reason to suppose that there will not be a chastisement of an inconceivable magnitude. The suffering will be horrendous and there is no way your soul will survive it unless you are firmly united with the Sacred Heart of Jesus and His Immaculate Mother.

The other side of this, that really begs for some extensive posts, is the demand from God to help others. At this moment, there are poor sinners, overwhelmed with pain and misfortune, who have no faith. Their souls are dead due to their sins, and they have not been offered the living faith which alone will save them, but a toxic mess of deceitful platitudes. They are hurtling into hell in uncountable numbers, and we must save all of them that we possibly can. The remedy for this is our sacrifices, our penances and we must work, more than ever, to offer all to the Sacred heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in reparation for sins and for the conversion of poor sinners.

Above all, we must always thank God in all things! God is with us; He gives us His Mother to be our Mother! Hold fast and believe!

Pray the Rosary and confound satan!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

Well now, my children . . .

 

Ed Note: In answer to some regarding the dust-up yesterday. A popular link aggregator site that promotes false apparitions, especially Medjugorje mistakenly posted a link to this post (in its 2016 version) resulting in a brief flurry of visitors. I responded by placing a header sternly warning of sites that lead souls to hell by promoting false apparitions. They quickly replaced their link to me with one more suited to their site. For those who need to know, despite the fact that page views are deemed to be the lifeblood of blogging, I cannot betray Our Lady of the Rosary for anything, even though my blog is dying for want of page views, I accept God’s will. Dying we all must. Dying in God’s grace, ah that is the prize!

Re-posting for commemoration of visit of Our Lady of La Salette.

“Well now, my children, you will pass this along to all my children.”

With those words, on September 19,  1846, 173 years ago today, Our Lady of La Salette concluded her message to the little cowherds, Melanie Calvat and Maximin Giraud. What an intriguing statement this is as we look back over the many decades since Our Lady of La Salette left us.  She does not ask the children to pass her message along, she simply states that they will.

In “Beyond Politics“, Solange Hertz wrote of the strident resistance to the message of La Salette which arose not so much from outside the Church as from within the Church herself, “despite the fact that the apparition enjoyed almost immediately the full approbation of the Church with rich indulgences granted to pilgrims and canonically approved miracles…”

Why this resistance? According to Melanie,

Alas, the Bishops, those who considered themselves targeted in the Secret, have become the enemies of this merciful Secret, just as the high priests condemned the divine Savior to death! And inasmuch as the Mother of God and of all Christians by adoption at the foot of the Cross has recommended that her message in its entirety be made known to her people, what are we waiting for to obey the Virgin Mother, seeing that every day we behold the punishments announced by the Secret taking place?

“What are we waiting for, inasmuch as Holy Church has shown herself in favor insofar as she can where revelations are concerned? Pius IX ordered the Bishop of Grenoble to build a beautiful Church on the mountain of La Salette. Leo XIII crowned the statue and gave the sanctuary the title of Basilica. What more do we need to beat our breasts, to admit that all, all of us, have sinned, all of us have provoked God’s justice, all of us have set our lips to the poisoned fount of our depraved passions, drunkenness from which plunges us into darkness?

Whoever is ill-willed in regulating his life according to the law of God, according to the maxims of the Gospel, will always find reasons for doubting everything he wants to be in doubt about; the faith of these people is not a sanctifying faith.”

“Well, my children, you will pass this on to all my people.”

On September 19, 1846, on La Salette,  two shepherd children saw the beautiful Lady weeping. The Lady’s sad and gentle manner contrasted sharply with the severity of her warning. This contrast was also reflected in the Church’s response: Although Blessed Pope Pius IX ordered the Bishop of Grenoble to construct a beautiful church on the spot of the apparitions and Pope Leo XIII crowned a statue of the Virgin of La Salette and gave the Sanctuary the title of Basilica, still many Bishops and clerics furiously opposed the message of La Salette and persecuted the seers unjustly.

Bishops refused absolution to pilgrims to the shrine, attacked Melanie as “unbalanced”, even insane and eventually succeeded in repressing the message. To this day, Catholics are forbidden to discuss the message. There are still many faithful Catholics who believe the disparaging remarks about the message of La Salette, claiming that Melanie distorted her later writings, contaminating the message of La Salette with false apocalyptic visions. Their motto is the same as the unfaithful Bishops who fought Melanie in her lifetime, “La Salette, yes! Melanie, no!”

Thus, they imply that Our Lady made an error in judgment when she chose to appear to Melanie; that Our Lady entrusted Melanie with a secret, not realizing that Melanie was “deranged”. We see this same arrogance in the modernist prelates who implied similarly that Sister Lùcia was somehow mistaken in her understanding of the revelation Our Lady entrusted to her. By denigrating the messenger, whether Melanie or Lùcia, they impugn Our Lady indirectly, and cast the message into doubt.

Our Lady then responded to this arbitrary act of disobedience with her eloquent silent tableaux in Knock, Ireland (1879) which was impossible to censure. Between them came Lourdes (1858) in which Our Lady emphasised her Immaculate Conception.and eventually, at the beginning of the bloodiest century ever, came Fatima. All the visits were warnings and messages which were ignored, manipulated or suppressed. The most egregious of the suppressions was Fatima’s message, after which it became necessary for Our Lady to return once more, to Akita in order to give the final warning. Indeed, the severe warning given by Our Lady of Akita, which was presaged at La Salette, is resonating even more loudly now than when first given. For today we see the prophecies of La Salette and Akita being fulfilled even as the vast majority of Catholics, especially the hierarchy, continues to ignore the prophecy of Our Lady of Fatima as irrelevant.

“… the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. … greater than the deluge, … Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, … The survivors … will envy the dead. … recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests. … the devil will infiltrate … the Church … The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed … Churches and altars will be sacked. … The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. … If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them. … Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.“ (Fatima, Akita and the Chastisement)

We will not review the entire story of La Salette as it has been recounted already; but only discuss an aspect which is often overlooked: The response of many Bishops and eventually of the Vatican itself, a response that still prejudices many against the message of La Salette and particularly against the messenger herself, Melanie Calvat. In time, in subsequent postings, we will show that it is precisely her battle against satan and his minions working within the Church that is the common thread in all of Our Lady’s apparitions since Guadalupe. In fact, Our Lady presents herself to us in her magnificent vision at Guadalupe as victorious over the serpent; that is, we begin with her victory just as we shall end with her victory!

Although Bishop de Bruillard of Grenoble, the diocese in which La Salette is located, approved the message and the devotion after first obtaining the approval of Pope Pius IX, (now Blessed Pope Pius IX), he was succeeded by an unfortunate man, Bishop Ginoulhiac. And therein lies the root of the problem. To understand this we need to go back in time to the beginning of the 19th century. In the aftermath of the terrible French Revolution, Pope Pius VII agreed to sign a Concordat with Napoleon Bonaparte which he hoped would allow some measure of peace and freedom to the Church in France. Among the concessions granted to Napoleon’s government was that which gave the government the right to nominate bishops for the approval of the pope. Sadly, this allowed an opening for those who were favorable to freemasonry or even to those who were secretly members. Since membership is a strictly held secret, we do not have any sure way of knowing if that was the case in this instance. However, we do know, quite irrefutably, that Bishop de Bruillard’s successor, Bishop Achille Ginoulhiac, who was a close friend of Louis Napoleon III, became an implacable enemy of Melanie and did his utmost to undercut the message of La Salette, while ostensibly giving a semblance of support for the devotion, similar to the way modernist prelates have damned Fatima with faint praise and sly aspersions. “By their fruits…”

The reason we recount this here is to note that even as early as 1846, the dark forces of freemasonry were aligning themselves against the faith, exactly as Our Lady of Good Success had warned centuries earlier, even before Freemasonry had been publicly declared. Our Lady appeared on the mountainside in 1846 to show the shepherds – and us! – her sorrow and to warn us all, as she had done earlier at her visits at Quito and Rue du Bac and would subsequently do in her apparitions at Knock, Lourdes and Fatima. Thus, we have been warned repeatedly by our Loving Mother and should by now be confirmed in that knowledge. For today we merely note that a most remarkable enmity was aroused against Melanie and her message.

“Four French bishops made it their business to stifle people’s belief in the apparition. But… all four of them died tragic and mysterious deaths.

  • Bishop Ginoulhiac of Grenoble who had had little Melanie shut up in an English Convent to keep her quiet, died shortly afterwards in a lunatic asylum.
  • His successor, Bishop Fava, who did everything in his power to stop the spread of news of the apparition, was found dead flat on the floor, naked, his eyes bulging and his fists clenched.
  • Bishop Gilbert of Amiens (and later of Bordeaux), who had said: ‘The secret of La Salette is nothing but a tissue of anti-religion, lies and exaggerations’, was found a short time later, on August 16, 1889, dead in his room stretched out on the floor; and during his funeral his coffin fell off the catafalque.
  • Archbishop Darboy of Paris, who himself interrogated Maximin and did violence to his mind with questions about ideologies so as to get at the secret of the boy: ‘The words of your beautiful Lady are at times just stupid, as your secret will prove stupid.’  But the boy answered: ‘It is as certain that I saw the beautiful Lady as I am certain that within three years you will be shot dead.’  On May 24, 1871 that prophecy came true: the Archbishop was shot dead by the assassins of the Paris commune.”

The above quote (which I have edited slightly for clarity) is widely reprinted on the internet with the names of Bishop Jacques-Marie-Achille Ginoulhiac and Archbishop Georges Darboy misspelled. The quote comes originally from Abbe Gouin’s book, “Sister Mary Of The Cross; The Shepherdess Of La Salette“.

We thus see that the Age of Apostasy began with the arch heretic Martin Luther. Our Lord Jesus Christ responded to satan’s assault by offering us anew His most Sacred Heart. This beautiful devotion was first offered to France, particularly to her King who ignored it until it was too late. Disobedient France is today struggling in darkness because of that indifference. Our Lord then sent His beloved Mother to us, to Guadalupe, to Quito, and so on. Over the centuries, the message should have distilled and clarified within the community of Our Lady’s faithful children. Do you think this has happened? On the contrary, there is confusion among us.

Now, this age of apostasy, which began with the rebellious priest Martin Luther, is drawing to a climax through the diabolical forces occupying the Vatican. The unfortunate man who has usurped the power of the papacy has made use of every opportunity to insult the most Blessed Mother of God. On the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima’s Miracle of the Sun, the Pope issued a Vatican postage stamp which eliminated Mary from the Crucifixion of her Son ad replaced her with the arch-heretic Luther. This past year he has denied her Immaculate Conception (“Mary was a normal girl”)   and again recounted in “Blasphemy for Christmas” .  And in October he plans to put the finishing touches on his destruction of the dogma and practice of the faith (begun by Paul VI)  by changing the priesthood, the Mass and sacraments, even the Blessed Sacrament.

MEMORARE TO OUR LADY OF LA SALETTE

Remember, dear Lady of La Salette, Mother of Sorrows and Reconciler of sinners, the tears which thou didst shed for me on Calvary; be mindful also of the unceasing care which thou dost exercise to shield me from the justice of God; and consider whether thou canst now abandon thy child, for whom thou hast done so much. Inspired by this consoling thought, I come to cast myself at thy feet, in spite of my past infidelity and ingratitude. Reject not my prayer, O Virgin of Reconciliation, convert me, obtain for me the grace to love our Lord Jesus Christ above all things and to console thee too by living a holy life, in order that one day I may abide with thee in Heaven. Amen.

 

[Note: to those who will ask, the “Mystery” of La Salette referred to in this post’s title is the same Mystery of Iniquity we have been tracing since the beginning and which the Sacred Hearts will vanquish in due time.]

 

 Remember – Our Lady needs us to obey:  First Saturdays of Reparation, daily rosary, at least 5 mysteries, wear her brown scapular and live your Total Consecration to her Immaculate Heart, offering daily duties in reparation and for the conversion of poor sinners.

 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.
 St. Joseph, terror of demons, protect our families, protect our priests.
 St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

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