And the Sixth Angel Sounded the Trumpet

 

“One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter. And the sixth angel sounded the trumpet:”

[13] … and I heard a voice from the four horns of the great altar, which is before the eyes of God, [14] Saying to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates. [15] And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year: for to kill the third part of men.

[16] And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. [17] And thus I saw the horses in the vision: and they that sat on them, had breastplates of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone. [18] And by these three plagues was slain the third part of men, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. [19] For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For, their tails are like to serpents, and have heads: and with them they hurt. [20] And the rest of the men, who were not slain by these plagues, did not do penance from the works of their hands, that they should not adore devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

[21] Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts. (Apocalypse Chapter 9, verses 13-21)

With the Sixth Angel’s Trumpet, we are introduced to the most severe chastisement so far. St. John himself seems to expect disbelief at the vastness of it, for when he announces that the army of horsemen numbers “20,000 times 10,000”, that is, 200,000,000, he quickly asserts, “And I heard the number of them”, thus confirming this number is from the Holy Ghost, and not his own conjecture.

Sculpture in Vatican Hall portraying the Conciliar/ Modernist Vision of their anti-Church.

The Great Altar is Christ our Savior,  and it is He who commands the four fallen angels be released. That these angels are fallen is clear because they have been bound. That Jesus is allowing them to be free is evidence of His justice, which has been so long mocked with false mercy of hypocrites. The Great Altar emphasises Christ’s perfect sacrifice for us on Calvary and in the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. This vision is directly related to the abuses of the Mass, such as stripping it of its sacrificial nature, and the abuses of the faith, carried out by the leaders of the Church, those who are most called to protect, promote and defend the Faith.

The Message of Fatima, Essential Things

 

Unable to post right now, but for today, offer an older post that is still apt.  Do not allow yourselves to be disheartened or misled: All this, the apostate pope, the effeminate, corrupt Vatican, hell bent on perverting the doctrines and practices of the faith and using the Vatican as a brothel for immorality;  the seeming triumph of the Lord of this World over the pure and holy Bride of Christ – it was all warned of. And Our Lady has given us the very simple answer. This time is the Passion of the Church,  and roughly corresponds with the Crowning with Thorns. Our Lord today is mocked and despised in every way, but most especially by His consecrated priests, those  Bishops, Cardinals and even Popes who abuse their authority, crowning Him anew with the thorns of their perversions and betrayals. To take that further, we have yet to endure the carrying of the Cross and the actual Crucifixion, in which there will be such tremendous suffering as has never been seen in the history of the Church.

† . † . † 

The  Secret of the Secret of Fatima  is  reparative devotion to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Until such time as reparation has been made  – or extracted from mankind – the fury of the chastisement, both material and spiritual,  will increase even as the grace and mercy of God will withdraw like the tide ebbing away before the tsunami rolls in.

It is difficult to do this matter justice in these circumstances. But you must know this: There is one essential devotion that you must do. The grace which is needed for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary depends on it.

In Frere Michel’s Volume II  of The Whole Truth About Fatima, he thoroughly documents the resistance, indeed refusal, first by  Bishop da Silva, Fatima’s Ordinary, and then by Pope Pius XI, to even support the First Saturdays of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, much less establish this. Here is the crux of the problem, that few seem to grasp: The revelations of Our Lady at Fatima occurred in a specific order and this order is essential to the understanding of the message.

First and foremost message is Pray the Rosary every day. Then right after the vision of Hell, (which is a foundational revelation,) is the vision of her Immaculate Heart.  In that sequence alone, we are to understand that the requested devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is essential to defeating sin and its eternal consequences in our own life. So, already, we understand, the daily Rosary is the basis for everything else which follows. Then, we must be aware and stay aware that our battle is against sin, and grasp that not only are we responsible for saving our souls but must pray and sacrifice to save sinners from this terrible fate.  And we are given at this third visit, the two means to do this, that is, the Rosary and the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Now, if you would truly understand the Message of Fatima, invest some prayerful time reading and re-reading the dependable accounts of this Third Visit, which is the heart of the heart of the message. We therefore recall yet again:

Our Lady prefaced the vision of Hell with an important prayer:

“Sacrifice yourselves for sinners, and say many times, especially when you make some sacrifice: ‘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.’ “

Note the sequence here: First and foremost, “O Jesus, it is for love of You.” Always Jesus first!

After the vision of Hell, the children turned to Our Lady for comfort and she told them:

You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.

If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the reign of Pius XI.

When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine and persecutions against the Church and the Holy Father.

To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.

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. 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.

In Portugal, the dogma of the faith will always be preserved, etc. Do not tell this to anybody. Francisco yes, you may tell him.

When you say the Rosary, say after each mystery, ‘O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of Hell, Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are most in need (of Thy mercy).

Note: Our Lady only said, “a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.” Enemies of the message of Fatima insist on attacking this as “millenarianism” which is very misleading. Our Lady only indicated a “certain period” of peace, certainly not a millenium.

Our Lady’s visits at Fatima were prefaced by the three visits of St. Michael demanding sacrifice and reparation, especially for Eucharistic abuses, and teaching the children the perfect act of Eucharistic Adoration. Then, Our Lady began her series of apparitions and by her third visit, had taught the children the importance of the daily Rosary, the reality and eternal character of Hell as a consequence of sin, the need for reparation for sins and for the conversion of sinners.

“To save them (sinners), God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.”

In the Secret she had given them, we see that she mentions Pope Pius XI. She is calling him out by name, before that name even existed, for the Pope of 1917 was  Benedict XV. Therefore, we see that when Our Lady returned in the reign of Pius XI, and asked for the First Saturdays of Reparation, she was directing this request to Pius XI personally. How tragic that this Pope refused even such a small request! Frere Michel, in Volume II, documents extensively the frantic actions of this pathetic Pope, and all of them failed because he refused the simple requests of Our Lady.  In fact, on his watch, Russia, by now possessed by the satanic fury of marxism, spread her errors like wildfire and many millions of Christians suffered and died. Thus, the fulfillment of the prophecy, “The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.” That is not to imply that we have seen the end of this dire prophecy, far from it!

Our Lady’s first request was for the First Saturdays of Reparation. Once again, we note the sequence. Had this small devotion been established by the Pope, the grace that would have resulted would have facilitated the Consecration of Russia.  By obediently establishing in the world devotion to her Immaculate Heart with the First Saturdays, the Pope would have nourished his own faith and the faith of millions of Catholics throughout the world, thus allowing for the Consecration of Russia.

Lucia’s own Bishop, da Silva, refused this small but essential devotion.  Then, Pope Pius XI refused to establish it. Now, recall the words of Our Lady,  “To save them (sinners), God wishes to establish  in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.”

The operative word here is “establish”. This is a directive to the Pope for it is his responsibility to establish devotions.  No Pope has in any way established this important devotion. How many Bishops have called for it, or have themselves set the example publicly?

To be perfectly clear: if you do not observe and promote this devotion (within your limited means), you will be held accountable.  This devotion, after the previous ones cited, is not optional; indeed it is more urgent now than ever before.

God Our Father knows all things and most certainly knew that the Vatican would resist the message of Our Lady. Therefore, the inevitable conclusion is that the Message is intended for us now, more than ever. It is for us to see how this horrid state of affairs came about and therefore how it may be remedied.  

The problem began with wilfull disobedience on the part of the Pope and hierarchy, joined by disobedience of the laity and it can only be remedied by obedience to God’s commands, through the Blessed Virgin Mary, for the remedial, reparative devotions she has requested.

Our Lady of the Rosary has given us a simple, straightforward path, If only I could help people understand it!  Please join Our Lady in this battle! So many souls depend on you!

Please, it is never to late to Return to the Message of Fatima!

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

St. Michael and the Power of Darkness

 

Today we honor the great angelic Saint, Michael the Archangel, he of the flaming sword who is also, as he assures us, “The Angel of Peace”.  How can this be? St. Michael explained this:

‘Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. You will thus draw down peace upon your country. I am its Angel Guardian, the Angel of Portugal. Above all, accept and bear with submission the suffering which the Lord will send you.’

Thus, sacrifice and reparation are called for. OK, you regular readers saw that coming  didn’t you? Forgive me, but this is such a grand time to be a Catholic and to do what true Christians do best – take up our crosses and follow the Man! In this way, we obey the great Saint Michael, the Angel who promises peace to us – the peace of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

The year before Our Lady of the Rosary appeared at Fatima, St. Michael prepared for her visits by his own apparitions to the children.  As the Angel of Peace, St. Michael visited Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta in 1916 to prepare  them for the work of the Blessed Virgin and through them, to prepare us for our work in this present crisis as the prophecy of Fatima draws to its calamitous close.

The following is compiled from a variety of Fatima resources, especially from Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité’s ‘The Whole Truth About Fatima, Volume I’ (Link).

 

"Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men. Make reparation for their crimes and console Our Lord."
“Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men.
Make reparation for their crimes and console Our Lord.”

 

The Angelic apparitions took place in spring, summer and fall, 1916, when Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta were nine, eight and six, respectively. On a spring day, they shepherded their flocks on the east side of the Cabeço. After lunch and the Rosary, they began to play when,

” … a strong wind began to shake the trees. We looked up, startled, to see what was happening, for the day was unusually calm. Then we saw coming towards us, above the olive trees, the figure I have already spoken about. Jacinta and Francisco had never seen it before, nor had I ever mentioned it to them. As it drew closer, we were able to distinguish its features. It was a young man, about fourteen or fifteen years old, whiter than snow, transparent as crystal when the sun shines through it, and of great beauty.”

“We were surprised, absorbed, and struck dumb with amazement. On reaching us, he said:

“Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.”

Kneeling on the ground, he bowed down until his forehead reached the ground. Led by a supernatural impulse, we did the same, and repeated the words which we heard him say:

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You!”

Having repeated these words three times, he rose and said:

“Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications.”

Then he disappeared.

Frère Michel remarks on the apparition, as at Horeb, when it was given to Elijah to enter into the presence of God, as at the Cenacle at the moment when the divine Spirit descended on the Apostles, or finally at Massabielle, when the Immaculate Conception came to visit Bernadette, it is by a sudden and mysterious wind that the Angel of Fatima announced his approach. ‘Who makest the clouds thy chariot: who walkest upon the wings of the winds.’ (Ps. 103:3)

And the words of the Angel echo the words of the Angels in other Biblical apparitions, ‘Fear not! I am the angel of peace.’ The presence of the Angel always fills the witnesses with astonishment, and he must first reassure them. ‘Fear not!’ he says to Zachary and to the Blessed Virgin, to the shepherds on the night of the Nativity, and to the holy women on the morning of the Resurrection.

Regarding his appearance, Lucia affirmed that he resembled a young man of great beauty, around fourteen or fifteen years old, whiter than snow and resplendent with a crystal-clear light, so much so that when Canon Barthas asked, ‘What was he like?’ she summed up her response in this laconic expression: ‘Era de luz.’ That is, ‘He was of light.’ Here also is a completely biblical expression. The Angel who announced the resurrection of Christ, relates St. Matthew, had an appearance as of lightning, and his raiment was white as snow. (Mt. 28:3) And the same Evangelist, describing Our Lord transfigured on Tabor says: ‘His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow.’ (Mt. 17:2)

‘God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all’ (1 Jn. 1:5), and whenever He deigns to manifest Himself to men, by the ministry of Angels or the mediation of His Holy Mother, He appears to us clothed in splendour, according to the beautiful verses of the Psalm: ‘O Lord my God, Thou art exceedingly great. Thou hast put on praise and beauty: And art clothed with light as with a garment.’ (Psalm 103:1-2) At Fatima, after each of the apparitions, this word “Light” always comes back to the lips of the seers.

Sister Lúcia recounted the overwhelming presence of the Divine in the Fatima apparitions,

The supernatural atmosphere which enveloped us was so intense that for a long time we were scarcely aware of our own existence, remaining in the same posture in which he had left us, and continually repeating the same prayer. The presence of God made itself felt so intimately and so intensely that we did not even venture to speak to one another. Next day, we were still immersed in this spiritual atmosphere, which only gradually began to disappear. It did not occur to us to speak about this apparition, nor did we think of recommending that it be kept secret. The very apparition itself imposed secrecy. It was so intimate, that it was not possible to speak of it at all.

From Frère Michel,

The Presence of God is something stupendous, even crushing, for our feeble human faculties. But this ‘annihilation before the Divine Presence’, to use the expression of Sister Lucia, was for the three future messengers of Our Lady the surest school of true and profound humility, which is first of all the intimate knowledge of the infinite sanctity of God and the nothingness of the creature. In addition to the message which the seers began to put in practice right away – ‘from then on, we used to spend long periods of time, prostrate like the Angel, repeating his words, until sometimes we fell, exhausted’ – the visit of the Angel also obtained for them intimate graces of peace and joy in God: ‘the peace and happiness which we felt were great, but wholly interior, for our souls were completely immersed in God. The physical weakness that came over us was also great.’

In time, however, their childhood natures took over and they began to play. Then, at the height of summer heat, they brought the sheep back to the shelter of home and spent the heat of day in the shade of the trees about the family well. Lucia remembers,

We were playing on the well. Suddenly, we saw the same Angel right beside us.

‘What are you doing? Pray, pray very much! The Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High.’

‘How are we to make sacrifices?’ I asked.

‘Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. You will thus draw down peace upon your country. I am its Angel Guardian, the Angel of Portugal. Above all, accept and bear with submission the suffering which the Lord will send you.’

‘We chose this spot … for our more intimate talks, our fervent prayers, and … our tears as well – and sometimes very bitter tears they were. We mingled our tears with the water of the same well from which we drank. Does this not make the well itself an image of Mary, in whose Heart we dried our tears and drank of the purest consolation?’

Frère Michel notes, “In the book of Kings, when the Voice of God spoke to Elijah, at Mount Horeb: ‘What are you doing, Elijah?’ (1 Kg. 19, 13) It was the same with the seers of Fatima: ‘What are you doing? Pray! Pray much!’ The Angel’s admonition was not in vain, for in the fall, when the Angel returned for the third time, he found them prostrate and praying as he had taught them. It was in late September or early October and the children had returned to the Cabeço.

As soon as we arrived there, we knelt down, with our foreheads touching the ground, and began to repeat the prayer of the Angel: “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You… I don’t know how many times we repeated this prayer, when an extraordinary light shone upon us. We sprang up to see what was happening, and beheld the Angel. He was holding a chalice in his left hand, with the Host suspended above it, from which some drops of Blood fell into the chalice.

Leaving the Chalice and the Host suspended in the air, the Angel knelt down beside us and made us repeat three times:

‘Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the same Son Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. And by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.’

Then, rising, he took the Chalice and the Host in his hands. He gave the Sacred Host to me, and shared the Blood from the Chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:

‘Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.’

Once again, he prostrated on the ground and repeated with us, three times more, the same prayer, “Most Holy Trinity…”, and then disappeared.

Moved by a supernatural force which enveloped us, we had imitated the Angel in everything, that is, we prostrated as he did and repeated the prayers that he said … We remained a long time in this position, repeating the same words over and over again.

Frère Michel, “There is a very clear gradation in the apparitions of the Angel, and the third, which was spent entirely in the miraculous Communion given to the seers, truly marks the high point. On that day they had a sort of ‘Eucharistic theophany’, during which it was given to them to contemplate the drops of Precious Blood falling from the Sacred Host into the chalice.”

Sister Lucia affirmed that by his apparitions, St. Michael had impressed them deeply,

“These words were indelibly impressed upon our minds. They were like a light which made us understand who God is, how He loves us and desires to be loved, the value of sacrifice, how pleasing it is to Him and how, on account of it, He gives the grace of conversion to sinners. It was for this reason that we began, from then on, to offer to the Lord all that mortified us …”

Thus, with the Angel as their teacher and catechist, the shepherds learned to pray and offer their sacrifices. Sanctified by the Bread of Angels, they were prepared to welcome the Queen of Heaven, and bear witness to Her apparitions and message even to the point of heroism. We too can learn from these three appearances of St. Michael.

The first lesson:

“Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.”

That is, do not waste your energy in fear, but pray!

The second lesson:

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You!”

This prayer teaches us by both its words and the manner in which the Angel demonstrates it, deepest worship of the Divinity of God. It is a profound yet simple act of faith, hope and love combined with the most profound adoration. What an eloquent “antitoxin” for the sacrilege and indifference exhibited today by our pontiff and prelates!

The third lesson:

“Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications.”

In this lesson, the Angel affirms that the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are inseparably linked and he affirms the efficacy of prayers addressed to Them as such.

The fourth lesson: 

“What are you doing? Pray, pray very much! The Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High.”

In this, the Angel affirms the importance of praying without ceasing. Indeed, God’s infinite mercy is offered to us and for this poor world, with the requirement that we must pray for it. In fact, as St. Michael states, we are to pray, “constantly”! And, moreover, our prayers must be accompanied by our sacrifices. Unlike the false mercy of imposters, God’s mercy must be prayed for!

The fifth lesson: 

“Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners.”

In this passage, the Angel teaches us the way God wishes reparation to be made. Not histrionically, with much fanfare, but quietly, unobtrusively, by offering up our daily duties, the sacrifices we are called to make each day in order to live our lives as devout children of Mary, consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

The sixth lesson:

“You will thus draw down peace upon your country.”

This profound lesson, so succinct, teaches us that war, which results from sin, can only be healed and peace restored, by sacrifices of reparation. Once again, only by reparation will we attain peace. Only by reparation. And what has the Church, beginning with John XXIII done? Where is reparation in the post-conciliar Church?

The seventh lesson:

“I am its Angel Guardian, the Angel of Portugal.”

Here, the Angel confirms that he is, in fact, St. Michael the Archangel, to whom Portugal has historically been entrusted. Now, you may remember that after Pope Leo XIII’s apocalyptic vision, he ordered the Church to pray to St. Michael the Archangel after every Low Mass that we be saved from Satan. After the Second Vatican Council, Pope Paul VI suppressed these prayers. Another sign of the darkness and diabolic disorientation of the Popes after John XXIII’s disobedience.

The eighth lesson:

“Above all, accept and bear with submission the suffering which the Lord will send you.”

This final lesson caps off the preparation for the following year’s apparitions of the Queen of Heaven. It still echoes across the years to us, today more urgently than ever. Accept and bear with submission the suffering which the Lord will send you! Yes, these times are rapidly approaching, when we may be denied the Mass and sacraments, and what is left will be to offer all to the Sacred Hearts with generous, sacrificial hearts united to theirs.

St. Michael, appears significantly in the Sacred Scriptures from Daniel * to Fatima’s last vision. He appeared also to St. Joan of Arc as well. This post is merely a small part of the significance of St. Michael. Chapter III of Frère  Michel’s “The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. I”  has much more information and all of it is most helpful to understand St. Michael’s role in Fatima and these  times. Marianna Bartold’s book, “Fatima, the Signs and Secrets” is also most useful. Both of the foregoing books have so many insights to offer, much more than I can recap here.

As we approach the end of the century of Fatima take heart, and offer always the Angel’s prayers .  If you are unable to assist at a true Mass each morning, offer Mass spiritually, renewing your consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, receiving Our Lord spiritually and frequently renew your intention to offer all to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary throughout the day in reparation, for the conversion of sinners, especially the Pope and hierarchy. With each Spiritual Communion, be sure to pray the Angel of Fatima’s Eucharistic Reparation Prayer. In this way, even if we are unable to offer Eucharistic Reparation in person, we can offer it spiritually.

Use Holy Water throughout the day and try to pray the whole Rosary, incorporating the Prayer of St. Michael in each decade, and repeating it after your examen and Act of Contrition before bedtime.

And in all trials, we must give thanks to Our Lord for allowing us to be here now, able to give Him our love and make reparation for the sins which wound Him so grievously.  We are very blessed to be children of Mary!  We cannot lose heart now, for we have, after all, her promise, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph”.

  • 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. (Daniel Chapter 12, verse 1)

Well now, dear readers, you may wonder to what was I referring in today’s title, “St. Michael and the Power of Darkness”. The power of darkness refers to that which has been spoken of by Cardinal Manning, by Father Malachi Martin (here and here) and most recently, in a post by Professor Roberto de Mattei in which he refers (here) to the powers waging war against the Bride of Christ as the agents of chaos. By any name, it is the power of darkness, the Prince of this world, even Satan himself, who will be cast from the Church in the most violent manner, far surpassing the violence with which the ancient enemy has been oppressing the Church. In this battle, as Lucia warns us,

” … from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.“

The Mystery of La Salette

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

With those words, on September 19,  1846, 172 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 Lucia was somehow mistaken in her understanding of the revelation Our Lady entrusted to her. By denigrating the messenger, whether Melanie or Lucia, 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 which was impossible to censure. Then came Lourdes and eventually 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 de 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 a tragic and mysterious death.

  • 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 the 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. In fact, the present occupant is preparing to honor Martin Luther next month. And so we see the  dog return to his vomit. What will Heaven’s response be? After 500 years of warnings?

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 – Pray the Rosary and confound satan and all his works and pomps.

 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.

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

A Life or Death Struggle

“The message of Fatima is then that we are now in a life or death struggle, even though most people are oblivious. As Sister Lucia warns us, ‘we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.’ ” 

That message is at the heart of the problem now and at long last, people are beginning to realize that what Our Lady foretold was true: Apostasy has infiltrated the Church, even to the top and behind that apostasy is the errors of Russia, that is satanic communism. It is gratifying to note that others are now speaking out.

A reader  forwarded an article posted on Lifesite News by Iben Thranholm, “Catholic abuse crisis is likely no accident, but a strategy to ‘destroy Church from within’ “. LINK. In it, Thranholm recalls the testimony of Bella Dodd before the House Committee on Un-American Activities that  “… In order to destroy the [Roman] Catholic Church from within, party members were to be planted in seminaries and within diocesan organizations… I, myself, put some 1,200 men in [Roman] Catholic seminaries.”

Thranholm concludes,  “What we are witnessing today in the Church may very well be the horrifying harvest of this infiltration. Obviously “the agents” have made it their mission to admit more men devoid of morals and Christian faith into the seminaries for decades. Keep in mind that many cases of abuse took place already back in the 1960s. It seems that the abuse never was (and remains) a mere matter of priests giving in to temptation, but a comprehensive and pervasive attack on Christian morality and faith by a cunning and profoundly evil enemy.”

This is  the point which I have tried to make in my very small way. It is wonderful to see it posted where more Catholics can become aware.

This abuse crisis is actually intended to do just what it is doing, that is, to destroy the Church from within.

While I appreciate the Lifesite News article, it is a shame that the article failed to cite the tremendous research that Randy Engel has done, in “The Rite of Sodomy”. Mrs. Engel’s work was met with a conspiracy of silence much as that we see in the Bergoglio Vatican in response to Archbishop Vigano’s exposé . Much of the information in the Thranholm article was made public by Engel in Volume V of The Rite of Sodomy published in 2006. In it, Engel discussed the Communist infiltration of the Roman Catholic Church in relationship to the rise of homosexuality and pederasty in diocesan seminaries and religious orders. Even the footnotes are filled with useful information. Here is a quote from Mrs. Engel from 2006 in the Rite of Sodomy:

“She [Bella Dodd] said that of all the world’s religions, the Catholic Church was the only one feared by the Communists, for it was its only effective opponent. Speaking as an ex-Communist, she said “In the 1930’s, we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within.” The idea was for these men to be ordained and then climb the ladder of influence and authority – to come to be Monsignors and Bishops. Back then she said, “Right now they are in the highest places, and they are working to bring about change in order that the Catholic Church will no longer be effective against Communism.” She also said that these changes would be so drastic that “you will not recognize the Catholic Church.” Once these men had become bishops, their influence could be widely spread because “Bishops beget bishops” and these agents would use their influence to elevate and promote clergymen who are not necessarily dedicated Communists, but who were of a progressive and liberal mentality, and whose influence could be counted on to foster a new philosophy and theology within the ranks of the clergy. Once the clergy were infected they would pass this infection to the laity. The whole idea was to destroy, not the institution of the Church, but rather the Faith of the people …through the promotion of a pseudo-religion: something that resembled Catholicism but was not the real thing. Once the Faith was destroyed, then the dismantling of the institution would take place.’ She explained that there would be a guilt complex introduced into the Church . . . to label the “Church of the past” as being oppressive, authoritarian, full of prejudices, arrogant in claiming to be the sole possessor of truth, and responsible for the divisions of religious bodies throughout the centuries. This would be necessary in order to shame Church leaders into an “openness to the world” and to a more flexible attitude toward all other religions and philosophies. The Communists would then exploit this openness in order to undermine the Church.” (“The Rite of Sodomy, Vol. V“, Chapter 18, by Randy Engel,

The plan to destroy the sacred priesthood by establishing a network of sodomy is evident all around us and will be clearer day by day as the world turns away in disgust from these effeminate posers. We can see Pope Francis surrendering to Communism in China, betraying the brave priests and Bishops who are man enough live their obedience despite his craven betrayal. If faithful Catholics cannot see the satanic hand of communism behind the regime of Pope Francis, then they are willfully blind.

For those who are new to traditional Catholicism, which simply refers to the true faith, uncorrupted by Vatican II’s modernist, marxist revolution, there once was a time, when essentially all traditional Catholics agreed that: 1. The Message of Fatima is the answer to all the ills besetting the Church and 2. The errors of Russia refers to communism and its satanic infiltration into the Church as well as all the institutions throughout the world, that is, governments, military and police, academia, and media, both entertainment and news. And they have gained control over the Church and all major religions, including islam, all international banking and all major governments.

The use of technology to monitor and control the actions of people is proceeding apace and when the time is right, there will no longer be any chance of escaping the complete suppression of any outward sign of the Catholic Faith. People will have a brief moment to realize how they have been tricked before the lights go out. We are picking up speed in our headlong rush into hell on earth. I have warned of this, to no effect. It will soon be irrelevant.

What Our Lady of the Rosary said in her Message of Fatima was true and is now being fulfilled right before our eyes. Sister Lùcia of Fatima reiterated Our Lady’s warning, “She said that Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation.” We have posted on that several times, the latest on September 6, in “The Errors of Russia or the Error of Our Lady?“.

Those promoting a “Catholic metoo movement” and who have called for the U. S. Federal government to institute RICO charges against the Church in America, will be so proud of their work. For they have the distinction of being what the communists refer to as “useful idiots”, that is, those who further the communist agenda without being aware of it. The favorite tactic of the satanic marxists behind the spiritual, financial and moral disasters besetting the Church and the world is to split each entity into factions and pit them against each other. This was also referred to by Our Lady of Akita. ““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).” (From “Fatima, Akita and the Chastisement“) For those who have eyes to see, Pope Francis and his destructive agenda of sowing discord is precisely the Pope of the Akita prophecy.

Today, everything that the communist masterminds hoped to achieve has been accomplished many times over. They have eradicated almost every vestige of Christianity from the shambles of our society. And now, it must be said that those who insist on bickering over whether Francis is Pope or Benedict is, and whether Putin is a Christian or not*, and whether the Society of St. Pius X is schismatic or not*, all this is a diabolical distraction. For the love of God, look at the Church, look at the Bride of Christ! We must stop ignoring Our Blessed Mother’s Message at Fatima. We must return in humility and obedience and throw ourselves on her mercy. Trust her to teach us how to make of all our actions, all our intentions, a worthy reparation for these horrifying sins befouling the Church. We must stop distracting ourselves and focus on the spiritual battle before we become unable to. Many millions of souls will soon be swept to destruction; and you, dear readers, can save so many! I thank God always that you, at least you few who read this, make use of the graces so abundantly made available through the Rosary of Our Lady! For we know how much good this does!

In closing, we quote Dr. Alice von Hildebrand from her tribute to an unrecognised saint of our time, Cardinal Joseph Mindszenty, “Recalling a Hero”

“What are faithful Catholics – aware of the gravity of the situation – to do? The answer is the one the Church has given us from the beginning: prayer, sacrifice, and the glorious conviction that the Forces of Evil shall not prevail. May I also suggest that we revive the glorious life of Cardinal Mindszenty and beg for his help.” (LINK)

In that passage, Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, reminds us that we once had truly holy and noble priests, even Bishops and Cardinals, who stood bravely against communism, even without the support of the papacy, notably Hungarian Cardinal Joseph  Mindszenty and  Croatian Cardinal Aloysius Viktor Stepinac. These truly saintly Catholic leaders showed us the way, and both were betrayed by the marxists within the Church. If there is interest, we shall perhaps write more on this.

Thank you for reading and sharing our articles. I pray for you always!

NOTES:

* For the record, one more time: Putin is in no way a Christian, he is a marxist, and the Society of Saint Pius X is in no way schismatic.

God made you like this

 

Pope Francis explains what is happening and why.

No, he has not broken his self-righteous silence, but if we look back on a recent event, we may understand his motives. Pope Francis is not going to back down from his complicity with the Lavender/St. Gallen Mafia which put him in office. In the first place, he is as he boasts, “by the will of Christ Himself – the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful”. And that he enjoys, “supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church”.

In the second place, he believes that for an older homosexual man to force his will on a young, but physically mature boy is beneficial to the boy. This is not a new concept, it is thousands of years old. And today, sodomy between a man and a boy is a well respected tradition of initiation within the very circles that have gained control in the Church.  As we explained in The Pitchman“:

“God made you like this”

“Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care. The pope loves you like this. You have to be happy with who you are.”

Pope Francis said that during an interview with Juan Carlos Cruz, one of the victims in in the Chilean clerical sex abuse scandal. Cruz, who now declares himself a homosexual, is thus lauded by Pope Francis in a way that echoes the talking points of NAMBLA.

According to NAMBLA, one of their stated goals includes: “to educate society about the positive and beneficial nature of man/boy love, and to support men and boys involved in consensual sexual and emotional relationships with each other.”

Passing strange isn’t it? The Vicar of Christ speaking as though he were a “card-carrying” member of NAMBLA, (the North American Man Boy Love Association). They firmly avow that they are doing young men a service; as one member once assured me, “I was making good citizens of them.”

Pope Francis uttered that blasphemous lie in the same breath with which he assured Cruz that he is the Pope. That is to say, he used his position as Vicar of Christ to deceive a young victim of a homosexual priest-predator.

Oh yes, Juan Carlos Cruz must “be happy” with who he is, for “God” made him that way. Whose “God” might that be? Why, the “God” of Pope Francis, of course. This demonstrates to us that this pope will not in any substantive way hinder the homosexual agenda in the Church. And Catholics throughout the Church are angry and betrayed as they should be. He does not believe that he can be removed from his position. “Supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful!”

Most Catholic commentators realize this, and are in favor of the civil and criminal investigations which are cropping up across the United States and beginning in other countries as well.  Their sentiments were reflected by a commentator I admire very much, Rorate’s Joseph Shaw, “Yes, let it all come out, even if some of the abusers turn out to be people we like and have trusted. As St Catherine of Siena said: “We’ve had enough exhortations to be silent. Cry out with a thousand tongues – I see the world is rotten because of silence.” (LINK)

Of course, he is right. These sins do cry out to heaven and the truth must be told. But we should bear in mind also that there is an agenda behind this.  We will soon see this crisis used to strip the Church of her properties, her wealth and her very last shred of dignity. And tragically, our Pope of Affliction will do not one thing to defend the pure and holy Bride of Christ. For this is the hour of Judas, and the power of darkness. The ancient enemy of Christ and His Church holds all the power of the world’s nations, as well as all the earthly power in the Church. Since those who lead the Church now and even most of the laity, no longer believe in the spiritual power of the Church, no longer wish to avail themselves of the powerful but humble weapons given to them by Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, it seems that we must proceed, as Jesus Christ our Savior did, to trudge the path to Calvary. How long, oh Lord, how long?

†  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.

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculata.

Note to my friends and loyal readers. I have worked overly hard to share with you an interpretation of what is happening and why it is happening in order to emphasise one thing only. All of this, every single item of every event that is occurring is for one reason only. In every event, God Who loves you so much that He willed to save you at the cost of His suffering and death, wants you to turn from your own ways of doing things, your own solutions to your problems, and avail yourself of His mercy and Hig generous graces, which are ONLY to be found in the one, true faith He established.

The Church remains pure and holy, even as Her founder, Our Lord Jesus Christ. When He lay in the dirt, bruised, bleeding, spit upon and seeming defeated, He remained the pure and spotless Victim, offered for our sins. And when His dead body was laid in our Blessed Mother’s arms, even then, He was preparing His Resurrection. The devil rejoiced to see His broken body and His Sorrowful Mother’s copious bitter tears. He rejoices now, as he sees Catholics fleeing the Church in disgust.

By leaving, they deprive themselves of the sanctifying grace which is essential for their soul’s survival in these times. Despite what they may think, sanctifying grace, the true life of God for your soul, only comes from the true sacraments in the true church. Those who have broken from the faith are abandoning the only means for their salvation. We are obligated to pray and offer penance for them, but do not look back at them.

Let them go, for Our Lord knows His own and they know Him. Those who insist on following Him in their own way, well, they are dross, let them go. Only by obedience to God’s merciful message of Fatima, through devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, ever obedient, will we be saved.

Please do not allow others to mislead you by spreading errors about the Society of St. Pius X. It is the true Remnant that will save the Church. Do not take my word but pray your Rosary and Our Lady will lead you to the Truth!

I will rest a while but have arranged for several re-posts of popular articles at the appropriate time. I do hope that you will continue to pray for our priests who are suffering a white martyrdom now, perhaps to prepare them for what is to follow.

I pray for you always, thank you for reading.

The Judas Hour

 

There is a great danger at this time, in seeking secular means to address spiritual problems, such as the deeply spiritual plague of unchaste, faithless clergy. Even the “good bishops” who are speaking out now have failed to use the spiritual means given by God through our Blessed Mother to renew and restore the faith. And now, the civil government which serves the forces of evil that war against the Church, are moving to investigate what the episcopacy has so stubbornly concealed these past decades, with the inevitable result of the Church being denuded of her facade of respectability, stripped of her wealth and worldly possessions, exactly as we have often recounted these past several years. As investigations continue, many innocent priests and Bishops will find themselves ensnared, for satan never neglects to use every crisis for his own advantage. There will be much suffering.

New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Missouri, and soon the rest of the states will follow. We alluded to this in “Shoring up the ruins”, for it is quite clear that the Bergoglian Vatican has been preparing for this. It is not merely an American problem, it is to sweep throughout the world and leave the Chuch in ruins.

The Word of God tells us that towards the end of time the power of this world will became so irresistible and so triumphant that the Church of God will sink underneath its hand … It will be deprived of protection. It will be weakened, baffled, and prostrate, and will lie bleeding at the feet of the powers of this world.” (Cardinal Manning)

Let’s take a moment to remind ourselves of a few things we have covered earlier.

  • The message of Fatima was a warning – the Third Part of the Secret, the Spiritual Chastisement, foretold an apostate pope and a massive falling away from the faith.
  • Both Paul VI and Benedict XVI spoke of the Church becoming a miniscule percent of humanity.
  • Many approved revelations foretell of a plague of priests who betray their vocations.
  • The material Chastisement including the perpetual and ever escalating wars, will continue until her demands are fulfilled.
  • Our Lady of Fatima warned that if God’s requests (They were His requests, she was the messenger) were not observed, Russia would spread her errors over all the world.
  • Sister Lucia confirmed that if Our Lady’s request was not heeded Russia would rule America, as well.

From those points, we can draw some conclusions.

  • We have arrived at the stage of the Apostate Pope and a massive defection from the faith.
  • We have not quite reached the stage where the Church becomes nearly extinct, but are on the brink of it.
  • There is much misunderstanding on the last two points on Russia.That is because it is essential to the satanic forces that we be cast into confusion on this vital subject.
  • The errors of Russia did not die when the U.S.S.R. broke up. Although this is denied by many respected traditional Catholics, communism (satanic marxism/leninism) did not ever die and will not die until it is crushed by the Blessed Virgin, to whom it has been given. It merely rebranded and continued to permeate every aspect of western society. Socialism, marxism, scientific materialism, humanism, and liberation theology, no matter the label, the same diabolical force is at work.  In any form, it is satanic, anti-life and anti-Christ in all its aspects.
  • Sister Lucia’s prophecy about Russia and the United States of America has come true as will be apparent within the year, possibly.

Consider that what we see now in the clergy sex abuse scandals was intended all along. In an earlier article, we reported that  the Bergoglian Vatican has been working to shelter the wealth of dioceses all over the world in anticipation of the coming attacks on Church properties and assets. The governments of many countries have long desired to strip her riches from the Church and now their self-righteous anger gives the excuse they wished for. The diabolical forces in Spain come to mind, but their number is legion.

As we have discussed, the hammer of islam may well be just the perfect tool to destroy the surviving monuments of Christianity in Europe and elsewhere. Perhaps soon, the devastation of many cities in Europe as was foretold in the prophecies.

Pope Francis will stand his ground, insisting that he is “by the will of Christ Himself – the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful”. And that he enjoys, “supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church”. He believes that no one can stop him. He may be right, for it seems that it is the Judas hour and the power of darkness. 

Is there any Bishop, Archbishop or Cardinal calling for the faithful to follow his lead in returning to the true message of Fatima?  Has anyone called for the requested First Saturdays of Reparation? Has any Bishop announced he will promote in his diocese true devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? Sister Lucia explained what is needed in 1957: devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Most Holy Mother, consists in considering Her as the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon, and as the certain door by which we are to enter Heaven.”

Which Bishop will come forward and announce that henceforth, he will retire his coat of arms and replace it with the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and will command that every church and chapel in his see enthrone these Sacred Hearts, and display the same banners while proclaiming the devotion of total consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Is there any Bishop who will lead his diocese in devotion to the Immaculate Heart, personally promote her rosaries of reparation, her brown scapular? Who will personally lead the children to Our Lady? Who will cast from his diocese sex education that corrupts their tender souls?

Appointing committees and speaking in vague terms about fasting and prayers is really not the answer. Name what it is that you are repenting of! Name the sins! Publicly repent of them!

If any Bishop asserts he intends to heal his diocese of these ills, but does not obey the plan offered by heaven, he is persisting in disobedience and therefore his actions will fail, and in most cases, merely allow the ancient enemy to gain strength. Through the long and complex history of the Church, as the faith began to fail, God sent messengers to call His children to repentance, reparation and return to obedience in the faith. Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Immaculate Mother have offered us the means and the Church has spurned it.

To continue to spurn the message of Fatima is to provoke the justice of God. We do this at great peril to our immortal souls.

Today, we close with a quote from Apocalypse, Chapter 6.

” . . . when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord (holy and true) dost Thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

And white robes were given to every one of them one; and it was said to them, that they should rest for a little time, till their fellow servants, and their brethren, who are to be slain, even as they, should be filled up. 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: 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:

And the heaven departed as a book folded up: and every mountain, and the islands were moved out of their places. 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:

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: For the great day of their wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?

Please return to the message of Fatima, and encourage others to do so. It is not an insignificant thing for us to stand firm, offering our widow’s mite of small penances with all the love and sorrow of our repentent hearts. For God sees what is hidden, and Our Lady’s Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart is with us always, and will lead us safely to the heaven of His love forever. The rest is dross and will soon pass away.

  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!

The Errors of Russia or the Error of Our Lady?

Today, I only have the time for a very brief note to perhaps help clarify my previous post. The reason I posted on palliative care is that it is part and parcel of the homoheresy which has been the major tool used by the Enemy to destroy the Church. Of course, the Church will not be utterly destroyed, because she is the work of God.

Satan hates human life. He hates the God-Man who assumed human flesh and blood of the ever-Virgin Mary. Finally, he hates that Virgin Mother with an unquenchable hatred. Hatred, deceit, violence, terror, but coupled with lust, greed, pride, narcissism and the most violent anger – these are his tools in trade. We can easily see how he has used all this as he tirelessly works to bring down the Church, the Bride of Christ for whom Christ suffered and died and rose again.

It is a marvelous thing to see how the Enemy’s servants have transformed the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church into a sewer of depravity, deceit, and lust for death. Under Pope Francis, the once noble Pontifical Academy for Life has been transformed and behind its deceitful facade it is now a United Nations asset for pushing contraception, sterilization, abortion, and euthanasia; all under benign euphemisms, such as sustainable growth and palliative care.

But the battle began long ago. The ground was prepared for palliative care by such diverse trends as the Hospice Movement, the Medicare transition to DRG’s (Diagnostic Related Groups), and organ transplantation. The sex education curriculum was the effective tool for the homosexualization of society, just as contraception was the wedge to force abortion as “pro-choice”, for if a woman has the right to “choose” whether or not her sexual activity will bear fruit, it logically follows that she would have the “right” to end any unwelcome life that the true Author of Life might dare to impose upon her.

And in this, the voice of Randy Engel has been the strongest in alerting us to the dangers of sex education, organ transplantation. and the homosexualization of the clergy. However, her efforts were often so opposed, especially by those within the Church, that even today, very few Catholics are aware of it.

There was such a massive amount of money to be made, by organ transplantation, that the seemingly righteous push to “give the gift of life”, won out. Many Catholic organ donors today are unaware that a living person has their organs removed, often while they are still quite painfully awake but unable to respond, in order for the “gift of life” to be successful.  This ghastly scenario occurs more and more often today. Make no mistake, organ transplantation is a huge part of the anti-life movement. Are you an organ donor?

Palliative care, death with dignity, compassionate care are all euphemisms for forcing the end of life to meet budgetary goals and eliminate the high costs of care for those deemed non-productive. The satanic goal here is to so “palliate” the dying person’s will with sedatives that a holy death is impossible. Instead of being able to perform the necessary work of life review, repentance and reparation in preparation for the greatest step we ever make – into eternity – we exit our lives in a drugged stupor, like an addict in an alley. It is deeply unfortunate and satan must be very pleased.

Life, the precious gift of our loving Father, redeemed for us by the Son, and sustained by the Holy Spirit, is under attack as never before. Destroying the Church, the very Bride of Christ is of the utmost importance to Satan, because the Church is Christ’s own creation, given to us at the cost of His blood to nurture our souls and birth us into eternity.

I will tell you something else you may not wish to hear, but nevertheless should note well: Our Lady of the Rosary warned us over a century ago that “the errors of Russia” would spread throughout the world and cause great harm if we failed to listen to her. Today, that message is largely ignored, especially by those who have commandeered the Barque of Peter and are determined to wreck it.  Consumed by unnatural lusts and a rapacious greed for luxuries and power, they have allied themselves to the globalist agenda.

The dark force behind all this is the same ancient enemy that is the “errors of Russia”, that is satanic marxism, also known as: communism, socialism, globalism, scientific materialism, marxist dialectics, and even liberation theology. There are many other manifestations as satan never tires of his deceits; he offers a flavor for every taste.

Many years ago, by a strange coincidence, just before my first surviving child was born and right at the end of the Second Vatican Council, I had occasion to meet a man who had a very strong impact on me although we only met once and spoke for just a couple of hours. I shall call him Viktor. He had been invited to speak to us about life in what were then known as the “Countries behind the Iron Curtain”. The little store-front our study group met in was shared by a coalition of patriotic, anti-communist societies. People expected him to tell us how great America is and how we were heroically fighting communism “behind the iron curtain”.

However, Viktor did no such thing. In fact he explained very clearly, how American interests had financed the Russian Communist revolution and had actually sustained Stalin, whose bloodbath would have been self-limiting but for the generosity of the bankers  with an endless supply of American money to keep the bloody despot in power.

He told a very unhappy audience that the United States of America was a nation of dupes, supporting marxist tyranny all over the world. The usually polite and appreciative audience was clearly upset and after the break, offered polite excuses and did not return for the last half of the talk. But Viktor and I remained after the place closed and spoke of his experiences in Soviet controlled countries, especially Ukraine and Poland. He explained that the marxists already (circa 1965) had a nearly complete control of western education, media and government on national levels, but not yet on the local level. He was very blunt in stating that America would succumb to marxism willingly, as the lesser evil.

I was dead set against his opinions, but too impressed with his obvious sincerity to offer much resistance. When my ride came to pick me up, I watched him walk away, and felt my heart sink within me. I had a foreboding that he might be right, but everything I believed in was revolted at the thought. Over the years, many, many times, I have begun to notice events that proved his point. And today it is very obvious. Look at our pitiful young people! Tragic!

Dear readers, Our Lady of Fatima did not err, nor was Sister Lucia wrong when she told Dr. Walsh that Russia would rule in America if she were not first consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. If you would, just keep this warning in mind, and pray and watch. Note the signs. If what I have said is true, it will soon be apparent.

Two points I wish to make in closing. This disgusting scenario playing out in the Church; two priests having oral sex in broad daylight in Miami, Florida, a priest in Latvia purchasing a human-trafficked diabled woman in order to violently rape and abuse her, just prior to the Pope’s visit to Latvia. – This is all the lead-up to the civil authorities of the nations stepping in to “save the citizenry” from the vile Catholic Church. I have actually seen comboxes on Catholic sites, calling for RICO charges against Catholic Churches. Be careful what you ask for!

This will be the long-awaited time when Paul VI’s warning – and Benedict’s too, about the church becoming infinitessimally small will be fulfilled. Perhaps we shall see the apocalyptic horsemen rise up to cleanse the world of the locusts, those effeminate heretics that arose from Pope Paul’s smoke of satan in the very sanctuary of the Church. many of our posts here have spoken of just these points.

As remarked in the Book of Destiny, once before, the scourge of arianism along with other lesser heresies, was largely eliminated by the invading barbarian hordes, after which the Church sprang up anew just as new growth arises after the forest has been chastened by a wildfire.

As for us, remember always,

“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).

I was not as brief as I hoped. Forgive me and please, renew your efforts – pray the Rosary, so many souls depend on us!

  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.

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

The worst are full of passionate intensity

The Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV) is working with a Protestant Church, Soros people and globalists to define “palliative spirituality” and promote it in a global healthcare model of caring for those with life limiting conditions.

This just in, breaking news about the horrid new Pontifical Academy for Life which is the result of Pope Francis’s anti-life agenda. He first gutted the Pontifical Academy of its pro-life Catholic members and then replaced them with his chosen advocates for one world government, one world church of man and anti-Catholic, anti-life advocates of population control.

From Dr. Elizabeth Wickham of Lifetree:

Have you heard about the upcoming meeting of the Pontifical Academy for Life? It appears that rather than helping souls know and avoid the sins which violate the Fifth Commandmant this part of the Catholic Church is helping to institutionalize a global healthcare that promotes and legalizes these sins by setting up guidelines which will become law.

This website announces the PAV / United Methodist Church co-sponsored meeting in Houston on Sept 16-18 to discuss the Spirituality of Palliative Care.

http://www.academyforlife.va/content/pav/en/news/2018/academy-for-life-palliative-care-project–houston-meeting.html

(From the website)
“This fall, the Holy See and The United Methodist Church will unite in a conference to defend patients’ quality of life.
The Palliative Care ans Spirituality for Life (PCSLife) conference is a joint project of the Catholic Church’s Pontifical Academy for Life (Vatican), The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Houston Methodist Research Institute.
The joint mission to advocate for the best possible palliative care transcends the barriers of distance — 10,000 miles — and doctrinal differences. Pope Francis stressed the importance of fostering dialogue between faiths in his Message to the Pontifical Academy for Life in February of this year: <<The complexity and delicacy of the subjects present in palliative care require continuous reflection and the spread of the practice to facilitate access: a task in which believers can find like-minded companions in many people of good will.>>”

It is no coincidence that the three day meeting is taking place in the hometown of the International Association of Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) founded in the 1980s See https://hospicecare.com/home/.

Something is wrong with this picture. The PAV is working with a Protestant Church, Soros people and globalists to define “palliative spirituality” and promote it in a global healthcare model of caring for those with life limiting conditions.

The speakers include: Charles von Gunten, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Palliative Medicine, Eduardo Bruera, speaker at the “Palliative Care: Everywhere and by Everyone” PAV workshop earlier this year at the Vatican and on the board of directors of IAHPC, Constantino Benedetti, Founding member of the International Association for the Study of Pain, Sr. Carol Taylor, Kennedy Institute of Ethics Professor and Director of the Pellegrino Center for Clinical Bioethics, Rev Renzo Pegoraro, Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy for Life, Christina Puchalski, Professor of Medicine at the George Washington University Institute for Spirituality and Health and presenter at the “Palliative Care: Everywhere and by Everyone” Workshop at the Vatican in Feb/Mar, Ira Byock, Institute for Human Caring of Providence St. Joseph Health and award recipient at the “Palliative Care: Everywhere and by Everyone” workshop, Liliana De Lima, Executive Director of the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care and speaker at the “Palliative Care: Everywhere and by Everyone” Workshop at the Vatican, Daniel Sulmasy, Soros scholar and member of the Pontifical Academy for Life, Tracy Balboni, oncology professor of radiation at Harvard Medical School and Farber/Bringham and Women’s Cancer Center and many others.

Note! Session V: PAL White Paper for GLOBAL PALLIATIVE CARE Advocacy includes two members of the Pontifical Academy for Life, the Executive Director of the International Association for Hospice and Palliative care and the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Palliative Medicine.

This lineup confirms the worst — today the Pontifical Academy for Life agenda is not pro-life. It is helping to transform global healthcare for those with serious life limiting conditions by promoting palliative care guidelines that will hasten death. The PAV is departing from the natural law and the true Catholic teachings about making moral medical decisions.

What happened to Catholic teaching about preparing for a holy death?
Is palliative spirituality in harmony with Catholic teaching?
What happened to Catholic teaching about the Fifth Commandment?

It would appear that the scandal of the Lavender Mafia has not slowed down this satanic assault on the faith in any way. If anything, the scandals of this perversion-promoting pope have only strengthened him.

“The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.”

Surely you see now, that it is only through the Immaculate Heart of Mary that this filth will be cast from the Church. Human means alone cannot combat this evil, but we are reminded that we can do all things in Him who strengthens us. And His strength is infinitely superior to the pope and all the legions of hell combined.

Pray the Rosary to defeat 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.

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

The Work of the Devil

 

“Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed: nor hidden, that shall not be known. For whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in the light: and that which you have spoken in the ear in the chambers, shall be preached on the housetops.(Luke 12, 1-3)

 

We remarked in our last post that it would appear that Pope Francis was well aware of the extent of the discontent in the Church and yet was more intent on protecting the wealth of the Church than the souls of the faithful. Therefore, the crisis will intensify, because the revelations begun by Archbishop Viganò will be buttressed  by much more testimony. There is a very real possibility that the long silent, although never publically acknowledged schism may become official. The question now will be for the individual Bishops to decide where they will stand. We are all aware of the familiar prophecy of Our Lady of Akita,

“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.” Indeed, that moment is upon us.

So what are we to glean from all this? We might consider some prophecies.

“75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.”

In the auditory portion of the well-known prophecy of Pope Leo XIII, you will recall Jesus acceded to Satan’s request for “75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.” This indicated the removal of “what withholds” as also prophesied and explained by Cardinal Manning. Quoting St. Paul, in 2 Thess, Ch 2, v 6:

“And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh: only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way, …Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity:”

Cardinal Manning goes on to note,

“The authority, then, from which the revolt is to take place is that of the kingdom of God on earth, prophesied by Daniel as the kingdom which the God of heaven should set up after the four kingdoms should be destroyed by the stone cut out without hands, which became a great mountain and filled the whole earth; or, in other words, the one and universal Church, founded by our Divine Lord, and spread by His Apostles throughout the world.” (See our previous posts on Cardinal Manning’s prophecy.)

Therefore, it refers to the strength of the Holy Catholic Church, in particular of the Vicar of Christ, the Pope. It is the authority of the Church which has been “taken out of the way”, that is to say, the Popes following the Second Vatican Council undermined their own papal authority, as well as the authority of the church, by collegiality and false ecumenism. The Popes themselves in their disobedience of the requests of the true Head of the Church, Jesus Christ, through His most Blessed Mother, have removed themselves as Guardians of the faith, as true shepherds of the flock of Christ.

The second, visual portion of Pope Leo’s revelation was the vision of a multitude of demons converging on the Eternal City, which I must confess that I cannot visualize without thinking of the cocaine fueled sodomites carousing at Capozzi’s “gay soirée”. Therefore I see it as being fulfilled in this present time. However, some apply it to the passage in the Apocalypse, Chapter 20, v 8: “And they came upon the breadth of the earth, and encompassed the camp of the saints, and the beloved city.” Despite their assertions, Chapter 20 does not refer to these times but to the time after the period of peace. We are in the time of locusts, of the smoke of satan, when the Bergoglian Church is persecuting the Church from within. That quote refers to the attack of the nations of the world led by the Antichrist against the “camp of the saints”, that is, the Church, from without, as in the final battle.

More correctly: We are now in the period where Christ has allowed the Popes the choice of obeying Our Lady in her requests at Fatima, or of disobeying. If they choose to disobey, as they have, then it follows that the disobedient Popes themselves weaken their authority and thus weaken the power of the Church, allowing the entrance into the Church of the most pernicious errors in doctrine and in the practice of the faith. It was Popes John and Paul that opened the Church to the enemy now within, and Pope John Paul II who presided over the massive infiltration of the Church by homoheretics in the seminaries, unversities and particularly, advancing in the episcopacy.

The demons swarming over the Vatican in Pope Leo’s vision are those that have been welcomed in by those within the Vatican, even up to the very top echelon, who have welcomed the ancient enemy by their apostasy from the faith and their sacrilegious sexual perversions, offering the sacred mysteries with filthy hands and hearts, whited sepulchres filled with all manner of indecency and corruption and despised even by the devils they serve.

For this, we quote from Pope Leo XIII’s Prayer to St. Michael:

This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity. These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions (Lam 3:15). In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is Wisdom, has thus allowed the evil to manifest itself so that it may be driven forth, as evil is always driven forth, by fasting, penance, and prayer, and ultimately and most decisively, by the blood of martyrs, which renews and vivifies the faith. For make no mistake, it will come to pass, even as the Holy Ghost revealed to St. John:

“And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord (holy and true) dost thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given to every one of them one; and it was said to them, that they should rest for a little time, till their fellow servants, and their brethren, who are to be slain, even as they, should be filled up.” (Apoc. 6, 9-11)

The blood of the martyrs cries out for justice; in no other way can reparation be made now, I fear.

What is our role in all this? We must stand firm in the true faith and with those priests and bishops who have never betrayed the Bride of Christ. At a minimum, we must recognise the true evil, and pray for those who are brave enough to confront it, and console Our Lord Who is so much offended. In addition, we must give the fullest consent of our will to obeying Our Lady of the Rosary in her Fatima  requests. And we bear in mind that we are, after all, our brother’s keeper. We can not turn from this responsibility to pray and sacrifice for sinners, especially our hierarchy and priests.

Pray the Rosary and confound satan and those who serve him!!

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins and save us from the fire of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy.

  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!
