St. Michael, St. John and Our Lady of Knock

Tomorrow we commemorate the Apparition of Our Lady of Knock. To prepare, we offer a guest post from Adrian Dulston considering the apparition in the context of Fatima, LaSalette and the Apocalypse.

When Our Lady’s message at La Salette  was silenced, she very eloquently replied with a silent apparition at Knock, and that apparition ties in nicely with the Angel’s message at Fatima  and the prophecies of the Apocalypse. Today’s post is from guest contributor,  Mr. Dulston of BVM Servant. I hope to have a follow up article or two on Our Lady of Knock soon.

Knock pilgrims 1880sSt. Michael the Archangel, The Beloved Disciple, and Ireland
December 27, 2015 by AD

Sunday overrides the Feast of St. John the Evangelist but as it’s coming up to the Fatima year of St. Michael the Archangel, that is, a hundred years since his often forgotten appearance to the Fatima children, I am reminded of other heavenly visits which warn of these precarious times.

On August 21st 1879 some Irish parishioners from the town of Knock, witnessed a vision on the back of their Church. In what is now a famous image we find Mary, Joseph, St. John the Evangelist and a Lamb on an altar with angels in flight. Many focus quite rightly on Mary in the vision but it is obvious that the scene is that of Holy Mass, and specifically the consecration of the bread into Our Lord’s Body, Who is offered as a Lamb to take away our sins, to God the Father.

Chastisement

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

. Pray the Rosary daily.

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

† . Persistence and patience in visiting our Blessed Mother.

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

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

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

† . If she is not obeyed and people continue to offend God, a worse war will break out in the reign of Pius XI, God will punish the world for its crimes by means of war, famines and persecutions against the Church and the Holy Father, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Points in conclusion:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

† . Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.

The Feast of Corpus Christi, 2018

 

“For the bread of God is that which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life to the world.”

They said therefore to Him: Lord, give us always this bread.  And Jesus said to them: “I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger: and he that believeth in me shall never thirst.” (John 6, 33-35)

Today, the Thursday following Trinity Sunday, we celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi, the Sacred Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

In the Gospel of John we read:

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever; and the bread that I will give, is My flesh for the life of the world.” The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this man give us His flesh to eat?

First Saturdays of Reparation – more necessary than ever

 

For some background on the urgent necessity of the First Saturdays of Reparation we offer the following in time for you to plan to begin your First Saturdays from May  through September and then, in October, for thanksgiving for being able to offer them all!

On her second visit (June 13, 1917), Our Lady told the little shepherds,

“Jesus wishes to make use of you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.” …  “I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the path that leads you to God.” …  Our Lady extended her right hand and in front of her palm was a heart encircled by thorns which pierced it. In Lúcia’s words, “We understood that this was the Immaculate Heart of Mary outraged by the sins of humanity and seeking reparation.”

And then, the following month, after showing them the  the vision of Hell, Our Lady said:

You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish throughout the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I request, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.  The war is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse war will break out in the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that God gives you, that He is going to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, famine, and persecutions against the Church and of 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 persecution of 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, she will be converted, and some time of peace will be given to the world.”

Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité , in Volume II of the Whole Truth About Fatima quotes Sister Lúcia of Fatima’s recollection (given in the third person):

“On December 10, 1925, the Most Holy Virgin appeared to her, and by Her side, elevated on a luminous cloud, was the Child Jesus. The Most Holy Virgin rested Her hand on her shoulder, and as She did so, She showed her a heart encircled by thorns, which She was holding in Her other hand.

At the same time, the Child said: “Have compassion on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother, covered with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce It at every moment, and there is no one to make an act of reparation to remove them.”

Then the Most Holy Virgin said: “Look My daughter, at My Heart, surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce Me at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console Me and announce in My name that I promise to assist at the moment of death, with all the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep Me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to Me.”

In this revelation, Our Lady of the Rosary as Mediatrix of Graces,  promises the supremely valuable gift of God’s grace, that is, the gift of final perseverance, without which other gifts are worthless, “For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul?” (Matt 16, 26).

Frère Michel continues,

“the first fruit of the Communion of Reparation is the salvation of the one practicing it. Let us place no limits on the divine mercy, but keep to the letter of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s promise: whoever fulfills all the conditions set down can be sure of obtaining at the moment of death at least – and this even after miserable lapses back into a state of grave sin – the graces necessary to obtain the pardon of God, and to be preserved from eternal chastisement.”

The devotion of First Saturdays was not at all new, but was given a new emphasis by the Blessed Virgin. Previously, there had existed the practice of devoting Saturdays to Mary. For instance, “The Fifteen Saturdays in honor of the Most Holy Rosary”, a popular devotion of the Rosary Confraternities to receive the Sacraments and perform pious works on each of fifteen consecutive Saturdays in honor of the Fifteen  Mysteries of Our Lady’s Rosary. Pope Leo XIII enriched this devotion with generous plenary indulgences.

Then, just a few years before Our Lady came to Fatima, St. Pius X, on June 13, 1912,  granted generous new indulgences for the Devotion of Reparation on the First Saturdays of the month, in order to “promote the piety of the faithful towards Immaculate Mary, Mother of God, and to make reparation for the outrages done to Her holy Name and Her privileges by impious men”.  On November 13, 1920, St. Pius’s successor, Benedict XV granted new indulgences to this practice when accomplished for eight consecutive months.

And so we see that when Our Lady requested that the Pope solemnly approve of this devotion and promote it,  she was not seeking the impossible, but merely adding precision and simplifying  an established devotion. And yet, since 1925, no pope whatsoever has obeyed this very simple request.

Pope Benedict XV was succeeded by Pope Pius XI who did much to proclaim the Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ. But this pope pointedly ignored Sister Lúcia and her efforts to call the true message of Fatima to his attention.  His efforts to broker peace failed dismally and his aid to the Russian people only served to assist Stalin’s hellish communism in its stranglehold on the enslaved Russian people.

We have seen in other posts  how Pius XI’s misguided actions  were the trigger for Our Lady’s return in 1929 to  ask for the Consecration of Russia, which he also ignored, thus contributing to Russia’s spreading of its errors, and causing the loss of untold numbers of souls.

Pope Pius XII also did not establish the Devotion of the First Saturdays of Reparation as Our Lady requested. Much is made of his failure to Consecrate Russia, but the establishment of First Saturdays was easily within his reach and consequently, it is inexcusable that this was not done for fully 35 years until 1960, when all became clearer with John XXIII’s open defiance of the request of the Mother of God. And now, after more than a century, we are farther than ever from fulfilling that simple request of Our Lady and our dear Lord.

John Paul II, whom many today call “Great” and “Saint” added to the betrayal by  refusing to promote the simple and profoundly merciful devotion of First Saturdays of Reparation, and promoting instead the false  “Divine Mercy” devotion and the “Luminous” mysteries, knowing full well that every DM chaplet recited was a rosary denied to Our Lady, and every recitation of the Luminous Mysteries supplanted one of Our Lady’s venerable mysteries, thus falsely pitting the two Sacred Hearts against each other.  The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary are not vying with one another for our attention! Those who attempt to set the one against the other are offending both Hearts deeply.

At Fulda, John Paul gave his reasons for not revealing the Third Secret, When asked why the Third Secret was not revealed, the Pope responded:

“Given the seriousness of the contents, my predecessors in the Petrine office diplomatically preferred to postpone publication so as not to encourage the world power of Communism to make certain moves.  On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this, if there is a message in which it is written that the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something  to be so much desired.”

Thus, the pope showed that he placed human considerations ahead of trust and obedience to God. He also never gave a clear explanation for why he refused to promote the First Saturdays asked for by Our Lady. If he was truly the devout Marian pope he professed to be, why did he refuse Our Lady this small favor she had asked for?

Our Popes have not obeyed Our Lady’s request for the First Saturdays of Reparation, our Bishops have not promoted this devotion (for the most part) neither have the majority of Novus Ordo Catholics. But now, more than ever, we few faithful can and must obey Our Lady’s request in this, the centenary year of the apparitions, miracle and message of Fatima.

Soon, we will have an opportunity that will never come again. The First Saturday of May, that is, May 6th, will present the opportunity to observe Our Lady’s long-requested First Saturdays from May through September in the Centenary of her apparitions at Fatima. Then, October 7th, we can give her one extra First Saturday, just because we, her true children love her so much! What a lovely spiritual bouquet for the Queen of the Holy Rosary, Queen of our hearts! What a blessing to be able to prepare for the momentous date of October 13, 2017! Please make every effort to perform this devotion!

For more information on First Saturdays of Reparation, please see our earlier post: First Saturdays of Reparation.

Thank you for reading. Please encourage others to make the essential First Saturdays of Reparation between now and October 13.

This is a repost of our previous article. We have been posting on the urgent need for First Saturdays for five years now. If only Catholics would obey this simple request!

Obedient Hearts

Today is the First Friday of March and an excellent time to renew our Act of Reparation to the most Sacred Heart of Jesus and our Total Consecration to Him. Our Lord asked for this devotion centuries ago and as the years roll on, it seems that fervor to Him has diminished greatly. And yet He waits for us … There is no expiry date for His requests. There is only the impending judgement.  Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary are not optional private devotions. They are the stern commands from God, calling us to repent, to return to His love with humility and obedience.

Even if we are unable to offer Our Lord a Mass of Reparation today, let us at least offer Him our prayers, penances and a good Spiritual Communion. We can renew our Consecration to His Sacred Heart and  to the Immaculata as well. And there is one more tool in our spiritual arsenal:

Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, animated with a desire to repair the outrages unceasingly offered to You, I kneel before Your throne of mercy and on behalf of my family and Church, pledge love and fidelity to You.

† The more Your mysteries are blasphemed, the more firmly I will believe them, O Sacred Heart of Jesus!
The more hearts despise and ignore Your love, the more I will love You, O loving Heart of Jesus!
The more that scientistic unbelief attacks Your Divinity, the more humbly and profoundly I shall adore You, O Divine Heart of Jesus!
The more Your sacraments are despised and blasphemed, the more frequently I will receive them with love and reverence, most generous Heart of Jesus!
The more Your holy laws are transgressed and ignored, the more I will take care to observe them, most holy Heart of Jesus!
The more that You are blasphemed and scorned in the Holy Eucharist, Your Sacrament of Love, the more ardently I will adore You, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus!
The more the imitation of Your virtues is scorned and forgotten, the more I will endeavor to practice them, most obedient Heart of Jesus.
The more the devil strives to destroy souls, the more I will be inflamed to save them by penances and prayers to You, most zealous Lover of Souls!
The more sin and impurity deface and destroy Your divine image in man, the more I shall try by purity of life to be a living temple of the Holy Spirit, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus!
The more Your Holy Church is scorned and compromised, the more I will endeavor to be her faithful child, Most Loving Heart of Jesus!
The more that hubris, heresy and apostasy threaten our Holy Church, the more I will turn to Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Your Mother to save us, O Sacred Heart of Jesus!
The more Your Immaculate Mother is blasphemed, the more I will increase my fervent devotions to her, Most Devoted Heart of Jesus!
The more Your Church is persecuted, the more I will pray and sacrifice for for her triumph and exaltation, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus!

Let us pray:  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, always obedient to the Eternal Father, teach us to be ever obedient and humble in the face of the diabolical disorientation that has sown such chaos in the Church and disheartened so many. Suffer us not to be scandalized by this long, dark night of the soul of our Church, but to persevere in loving obedience trusting always in Your Sacred Heart and in Mary’s Immaculate Heart. Amen.

Consecration to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Sacred Heart of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee.

This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee. I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O most merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited.

I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee. I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite goodness, grant that my name be engraved on Thee, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants. Amen (composed by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque)

And don’t forget the prayer of St. Michael the Archangel of Fatima:

“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 the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages, and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. Through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

My own favorite is the Sorrowful Mysteries of Our Lady’s Rosary, but I bet you already knew that!

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

† .  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.

† .  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!

And His name shall be called Emmanuel

 

“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign. Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and His name shall be called Emmanuel.”

His name shall be called Emmanuel, that is, “God with us.” This is truly the meaning of Christmas, the Birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, God with us!  For, as St. Jean-Marie Vianney, the Curé of Ars tells us, “… the second Person of the Trinity had taken a human nature, a human body, and a human soul, the same as we have. He has become one of us. He is like us in all things, with the exception of sin, says the Apostle. That is the first step of the mercy of God which we devoutly adore in the crib at Bethlehem. Sin separated man from God; between man and God there yawned a deep chasm, which man was not capable of bridging over.” (1)

And, in infinite humility, He comes not as a ruler of this world, in great pomp and pageantry but as a Child, entering our world as helplessly as we ourselves do. From St. Jean Vianney again, “Who can comprehend the greatness of the mercy of God in His abasement? Let the eagle become a worm, and at the same time preserve his eagle nature, you give him the greatest torture, because he can no longer move his wings. Give the lion, with his lion nature, the form of a snail, and he would roar with pain. What a fetter is our body for our soul! But it bears no comparison to the abasement which God laid upon Himself when He took a human body and abased Himself like unto a man.”

And why was this so?

It was in order to become as close as possible with us humans. God with us, one of us. Quoting St. Augustine, the good Curé  explains, “As if noble graft was engrafted upon the wild olive tree, all the branches and twigs would partake of the strength of this graft, so have we men, since the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, a part in His glory, in His graces, and His merits. God with us,  He abased Himself to exalt us.”

Now, this is the true exaltation – not the exaltation of the narcissists of today who descend into the depths of depravity exulting in  their disordered passions, but the true exaltation which comes of the soul’s realization that “He has first loved us!”

And this merciful exaltation, this incomprehensible love of God for us, is in particular for the truly poor of spirit, and the pure of heart. Becoming the lowliest of men, He offers us the exaltation of the Cross, the triumph over sin and misery and we know that through this Cross, we shall by His grace and mercy rise again with Him and that is the true exaltation!

But there is more, God with us, Emmanuel is Our Lord Jesus Christ, prisoner of Love in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  Today, He suffers the sacrilege against His Sacred Presence as never before. St. Michael, the Angel of Fatima, the great warrior Angel of Peace, reminds us, in his three visits in 1916, of the importance of this reparation:

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

As sin increases in the world and the Holy Church herself appears to succumb to the iniquity of the times, Christ in His infinite mercy, infinitely suffers still in the sacrament of His love.  And today, we renew our vow to Him ; on this day, His birthday, we beg Him to strengthen us in self-renunciation, in purity of heart and  unite our hearts with His most Sacred Heart with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, offering every moment of our day for love of Him, in reparation for the sacrilege, outrage and indifference that so wound Him and beseeching the conversion of sinners, especially those in our families and in the Church.

May the Divine Infant make us His own and abide with us for now and for all eternity, our Emmanuel, our God with us, forever!

Please, pray the Rosary with all confidence and give glory to the Lord, our newborn Savior, Christ the King!

The Message of Fatima, Essential Things

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 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 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, you must spend a good deal of 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).

We see that 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, of course), you will be held accountable.  This devotion, after the previous ones cited, is not optional; indeed it is more urgent now than ever before.In the next post, Deo volente,  we will discuss the obstacles to observing the devotion of First Saturdays of Reparation and possible means of overcoming them.

Post script: A thought just occurred to me that events are so uncertain now, and maybe it is a good idea to state this clearly:

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 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.  If only I could help people understand the simple, straightforward path here, laid out for us long before this disastrous papacy, which is the result of a century of wilful disobedience by the Pope and Bishops of the Church.

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!

The Precious Blood of our Salvation

Not only is today the First Saturday of Reparation in July, it is the Feast of the Precious Blood of Jesus, the Month of the Precious Blood of Jesus! A day rich in beautiful reminders of God’s gracious providence for us, even though we do not deserve such generosity. For today we turn to Father Faber’s tender tribute to the Precious Blood.

Most Precious Blood of Jesus, save us, save our priests, save our Church!

 

Father Faber, in his beautiful essay, The Precious Blood, or the price of our Salvation“, remarks that the Angels wonder in awe as they adore this Precious Blood.

“Their superior intelligence ministers more abundant matter to their love. From the very first God invited the angels to adore It. He made their adoration a double exercise of humility,—of humility toward Himself, and of humility toward us their inferior fellow-creatures. It was the test to which He put their loyalty. He showed them His beloved Son, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, in His Sacred Humanity, united to a lower nature than their own, and in that lower nature crowned their King and Head, to be worshipped by them with absolute and unconditional adoration. The Son of a human Mother was to be their Head, and that Daughter of Eve to be herself their Queen. …

The Precious Blood belongs in an especial manner to men. Much more, therefore, does God invite them to come to Its heavenly baths, and receive therein, not only the cleansing of their souls, but the power of a new and amazing life. Every  doctrine in theology is a call to the Precious Blood. Every ceremony in the Church tells of it. Every sermon that is preached is an exhortation to the use of it. Every Sacrament is a communication of it. Every supernatural act is a growth of it. Every thing that is holy on the earth is either leaf, bud, blossom, or fruit of the Blood of Jesus.

To its fountains, God calls the sinner, that he may be lightened of his burdens. There is no remission for him in any thing else. Only there is his lost son-ship to be found. But the saints are no less called by God to these invigorating streams. It is out of the Precious Blood that men draw martyrdoms, vocations, celibacies, austerities, heroic charities, and all the magnificent graces of high sanctity. The secret nourishment of prayer is from those fountains. They purge the eye for sublime contemplations. They kindle the inward fires of self-sacrificing love. They bear a man safely, and even impetuously, over the seeming impossibilities of perseverance. It is by the Blood of Jesus that the soul becomes ever more and more radiant. It is the secret source of all mystical transformations of the soul into the likeness of its Crucified Spouse. …

All the new nature of the man, who is “renewed in Christ Jesus,” comes from this Blood, whether it be his love of suffering, his delight in shame, his grace of prayer, his unworldly tastes, his strange humility, his shy concealment, his zeal for souls, his venturous audacity, or his obstinate perseverance. Sinner, saint, and common Christian, all in their own ways, require the Precious Blood each moment of their lives; and, as the manna in the mouths of the Israelites had the savor which each man wished it to have, so is it with the sweetness, the variety, and the fitness of the graces of the Precious Blood.

Father Faber reminds us that Our Savior’s Precious Blood came  from Mary.

Mary’s blood was the material out of which the Holy Ghost, the Third Person of the Most Holy Trinity, the artificer of the Sacred Humanity, fashioned the Blood of Jesus. Here we see how needful to the joy and gladness of our devotion is the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception. Who could bear to think that the matter of the Precious Blood had ever been itself corrupted with the taint of sin, that it had once been part of the devil’s kingdom, that what was to supply the free price of our redemption was once enslaved to God’s darkest, foulest enemy?

The Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus 2017

 

Today, the Third Friday after Pentecost and nine days after the Feast of Corpus Christi, the Church honors the Sacred Heart of Jesus. At this time, we should have completed the reparative Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which we began on June 15th, Corpus Christi. Today is an excellent time to renew our Family Consecrations to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Reparation and Penance, Signs of Love

The themes of reparation and penance are prominent in Our Lord’s revelations to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and those of His Blessed Mother to Sister Lucia and the little shepherds of Fatima. It’s worth noting that while Our Lord’s messages to St. Margaret Mary were so tender, personal and appealing, those of St. Michael the Angel of Fatima and of Our Lady of Fatima stressed the impending Justice of God in an appeal for reparation.

“I will reveal My love to them more and more …”

Centuries have passed; the Sacred Heart of Jesus and now the Immaculate Heart of Mary in union with Him, have alike been spurned, even by Catholics.  Although Catholics are at least somewhat familiar with the Promises of the Sacred Heart, few take note of a most important passage contained in Our Lord’s  words to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. This overlooked passage is His Promise of the Cross.

St. Margaret Mary wrote the following in a letter to her former Superior, Mother Grayfie,

“It seems to me that our Lord made me see several names written in His Sacred Heart owing to their desire to cause It to be honored … But He does not say say that His friends would have nothing to suffer because He wishes that they make all their happiness consist in tasting His sorrows… Our Lord has never given us stronger proofs that He loves us than by making us share in His sufferings.”

And In a letter to Mother de Saumaise she wrote that Our Lord had explained to her, “Embrace the cross lovingly, whenever it comes, as the most precious token of love I can give you in this life.”  (“The Promises of Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary“, by Father Paul Wenisch, S. J., Tamil Nadu, India).

It is eminently true to say that the Heart of Jesus was opened to bring us life.

But the Promise of the Cross does not mean that we will be forsaken, far from it! Taste and see the goodness of the Lord! St. Augustine, commenting on today’s Gospel (John 19, 31-37) notes that “The Evangelist says, ‘opened’ to show us  that thereby the door of life was thrown open, through which the Sacraments of the Church flow forth.”  And Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalene adds, “And it is through these Sacraments that we receive the life of grace.”

Corpus Christi 2017

“For the bread of God is that which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life to the world.”

They said therefore to Him: Lord, give us always this bread.  And Jesus said to them: “I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger: and he that believeth in me shall never thirst.” (John 6, 33-35)

Today, the Thursday following Trinity Sunday, we celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi, the Sacred Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“I am the Bread of Life”
The Holy Eucharist, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Savior

In the Gospel of John we read:

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever; and the bread that I will give, is My flesh for the life of the world.” The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this man give us His flesh to eat?

Then Jesus said to them: “Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. For My flesh is meat indeed: and My blood is drink indeed. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, abideth in Me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent Me and I live by the Father; so he that eateth Me, the same also shall live by Me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead. He that eateth this bread shall live for ever.”

Many therefore of His disciples hearing it, said: This saying is hard and who can hear it? But Jesus, knowing in Himself that His disciples murmured at this, said to them: “Doth this scandalize you? If then you shall see the Son of man ascend up where He was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth: the flesh profiteth nothing. The words that I have spoken to you, are spirit and life. But there are some of you that believe not”  For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that did not believe, and who he was that would betray Him.

And He said: “Therefore did I say to you, that no man can come to Me unless it be given him by My Father.” After this many of His disciples went back; and walked no more with Him. Then Jesus said to the twelve: “Will you also go away?” And Simon Peter answered Him: Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. And we have believed and have known that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God. (John 6, 51-70).

To those not of the Catholic faith these teachings are indeed hard. Martin Luther, who began the protestant revolt against the truth, founded his man-made religion on “faith alone, scripture alone”. And now today it has continued to devolve to the point where people can actually call themselves “Bible Christians” without actually embracing the truths of the Bible.

As Jesus said, “No man can come to Me, unless it be given to him by the Father.” Although Luther perverted this truth into “only believe”, we know that it actually refers to the preceding verses in which Jesus states the truth of His abiding presence with us in the Holy Eucharist, to nourish and strengthen us with His Body and Blood until we abide with Him forever in Heaven. On this feast of Corpus Christi pray for our loved ones who “walk no more with Him” and reject this saying which is hard to some but is salvation to those who accept the Word of God.

In the unchanging words of the one true Mass of the Church, at the consecration we pray:

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all things to make blessed, approved, ratified, reasonable and acceptable, that it may become for us the Body and Blood of Thy most beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Who the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands and with His eyes lifted up to heaven, unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed, broke, and gave It to His disciples, saying,: Take all of you and eat of this.

FOR THIS IS MY BODY

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands, also giving thanks to Thee, He blessed and gave it to His disciples saying:

Take and drink ye all of this.

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT: THE MYSTERY OF FAITH: WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

As often as ye shall do these things, ye shall do them in memory of Me.

The rubrics for the Consecration specify that the priest, after pronouncing the words of Consecration, kneels to adore the Sacred Host and then arises to elevate It for the adoration of all. Again, after Consecrating the wine into the Blood of our Lord, the priest kneels to adore, then rises to elevate the chalice for all to adore.

Today, after a half century of the modernist revolution in the Church, belief in the Real Presence is at an all-time low. Now we have a pope who is the poster child for Vatican II, and he is the proto-typical modernist priest. Here is what Antonio Socci said about Pope Francis on 28 April, 2016. (H/T Rorate Caeli):

Traditional Reverence for the Body and Blood of Christ

In a message today, Pope Bergoglio said precisely the following: “How much I would like us to kneel in veneration before the poor in church.”

Quite frankly, I’d like us to kneel before Jesus Christ, Our Saviour, particularly in front of Our Eucharistic Jesus, seeing that Pope Bergoglio doesn’t kneel at the consecration, as he should do and he doesn’t kneel at Eucharistic Adoration either!

In Dr. Sire’s recent book, “The Dictator Pope”, he quotes the epigram by Lorenzo Strecchetti:

“Sono Francesco, papa ed argentino: non all’Ostia, ma al secolo mi inchino.
Which might be translated:  Francis, the Argentinian pope, that’s me: not to the Host but to the age I bend the knee.”
(The Dictator Pope (Kindle Locations 3375-3379). Kindle Edition).

One of the effects of this disastrous papacy is the disrespect of the institution of the papacy it has engendered. Of course, we must make reparation for the scandal given by Pope Francis’  offense to Our Lord Jesus Christ.

No doubt anticipating the assaults on Our Lord in His Holy Eucharist, St. Michael appeared to the little saints of Fatima in the Autumn of 1916, He held a Chalice in his hand; above it  a Host dropped Precious Blood into the Chalice.  The Angel left the Chalice and Host suspended in the air and led the children to prostrate themselves in adoration before It.

This is the prayer the Angel of Fatima taught them to pray, the prayer the Church has ignored for 101 years:

“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. Through the infinite merits of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

The entire vision and Prayer make such a fruitful source for meditation and we should think on it often. All the more because the Popes and hierarchy have chosen to ignore it!

We are all sadly aware of the disrespect Pope Francis shows for the Real Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Sacrament of the Altar. But this awareness should not discourage us from praying for the Pope. On the contrary, we must add to our efforts of reparation, prayers for his conversion. As we follow the example of the Saints of Fatima, offering consolation to our Eucharistic Savior and praying for those poor sinners who offer Him such insults, we profit as well. For God our Father sees our hearts, knows our sufferings which are united to the sufferings of Our Lord in the Passion of His Bride, the Church, and will have mercy on us all.

Now is the perfect time to pray for the Pope, to offer penance and many rosaries, and trust in God, who hears our prayers through the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima. Pray confidently and expect miracles!

Irresistible Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Behold this Heart which has so loved men…

O my Jesus, Who didst say, “Indeed I say to you, ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be open to you.” Here I am, knocking, seeking and asking this grace …

Our Father.. .Hail Mary… Glory be…
O Sacred Heart of Jesus,  I place my trust in Thee.

O my Jesus, who didst say, “Indeed I say to you, whatever you shall ask of the Father in My Name, it shall be granted to you.” Here I am, asking Thy Father in Thy Name for this grace …

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.

O my Jesus who didst say, “Indeed I say to you, Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away.” Here I am, and supporting myself on the infallibility of Thy holy words, I ask of Thee this grace …

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.

Prayer
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom only one thing is impossible, and this is not to feel compassion for poor sinners, have pity on us, miserable sinners, and grant us the grace which we ask of Thee through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who is Thy tender Mother, and also ours. Amen.

Saint Joseph, friend of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Guardian of our family, Pray for us.
Hail Holy Queen …

Let’s all help spread this devotion; Our Lord will never be outdone in His generosity to souls who seek His mercy in true contrition. And we all need to make sincere reparation for our sins if we are to gain the necessary graces for ourselves, our loved ones and for our misguided pope and bishops.

  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!

  St. Joseph, guardian of the Holy Family, protect our families, protect our priests!

  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
