On the Eve of the Synod

Update in bold black, 6-10-2019, see below.

“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)

The Pan-Amazon Synod begins tomorrow, bringing with it the very real possibility that the long silent, never publically acknowledged schism in the Church 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 make of 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 6-8:

“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 (Dan. 2, 42-45)  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, Cardinal Manning on Bergoglio’s Reformation and “The Judas Hour.

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 vision was fulfilled at Cardinal Cocopalmerio’s  dear friend Capozzi’s “gay soirée“.  The faction responsible for this scandalous corruption is now convening a Synod to force their own corrupt immorality on the Church; an impure priesthood, impure sacraments devoid of grace, and an exaltation of satanic paganism in “ecological” trappings usurping and eclipsing the true Church and sacraments.

We are now in the period where Christ has allowed the Popes and the bishops the choice of obeying Our Lady in her requests at Fatima, or of disobeying. If they continue to 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, universities and particularly, advancing in the episcopacy. Many forget that it was Pope John Paul II who promoted and protected McCarrick, and many, many others.

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. They are whited sepulchres filled with all manner of indecency and corruption and despised even by the devils they serve.

The Blood of Martyrs

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. The monstrous evils of this papacy will call forth a cleansing martyrdom – it has always been so.

We all pray that God will send us a leader to unite behind and a clear path to follow; but know this – You must know this!  When God grants us a leader, this leader will be consecrated to the Immaculata and completely faithful to her message at Fatima. God’s providence will grant us this leader when we return to true and total devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who is “the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon, and the certain door by which we are to enter Heaven.”  (Sr. Lúcia to Fr. Fuentes)

You will recognise false leaders, and they are many! – by their indifference to the true message of the Immaculata in her revelations at Fatima. At the present time, there does not appear any Cardinal at all that fulfills this essential condition. Cardinal Burke has consistently refused to promote the message of Fatima and Cardinal Sarah “defended” the celibate priesthood by quoting  Popes Paul VI and John Paul II, both of whom promoted homoheretic bishops within the Church. Is it necessary here to note that those shepherds who promote impurity in priests are not actually safeguarding the chastity of our sacred priesthood? 

NOTE: To clarify the previous paragraph: Cardinal Sarah, in his attempts to defend priestly celibacy has quoted Paul VI and John Paul II as if they were guardians of celibacy. But both of those popes advanced the careers of men who were notorious for being unchaste. Paul VI set a terrible example in this regard and JPII promoted McCarrick and ignored the infamous crimes of the  founder of the Legionaries of Christ, Maciel. There is not enough space here, nor have I the strength to go into the ways those two popes betrayed the sacred priesthood and contributed to the current deluge of clerical scandal. Again, for Cdl. Sarah to laud the words of Paul VI while ignoring his ignoble actions is not edifying, it is misleading. Additionally, Cardinal Burke has had innumerable opportunities to promote the First Saturdays for Reparation which Our Lady requested and he knows very well they are necessary, but he has refused to do so. Those First Saturdays are essential in order to turn the tide of arrogant pride and disobedience which has so offended Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is this that I strongly protest against. (5:00 pm, 6-10-2019.)

Until we have a prelate who actively works to establish true reparative devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, especially the First Saturdays of Reparation, we will see no effective opposition to this juggernaut of satan in the sanctuary. Thus, leaders who do not arise from true devotion to the Immaculate Mother of God are false shepherds and not to be trusted.

We’ve tried to offer a variety of prayers over the past few months in preparation for the Synod, and now we offer Pope Leo XIII’s St. Michael Prayer. I’ll try to have more articles to help with our Rosary intentions during this synod as well.

 

Pope Leo XIII’s Exorcism Prayer to St. Michael

“O Glorious Prince of the heavenly host, St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle and in the terrible warfare that we are waging against the principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, against the evil spirits. Come to the aid of man, whom Almighty God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of Satan.

“Fight this day the battle of the Lord, together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in Heaven. That cruel, ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels. Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined for the crown of eternal glory. 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. In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has been set up as 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.

“Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory. They venerate thee as their protector and patron; in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious power of hell; to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude. Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church. Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that they may quickly find mercy in the sight of the Lord; and vanquishing the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, do thou again make him captive in the abyss, that he may no longer seduce the nations. Amen.

V.  Behold the Cross of the Lord; be scattered ye hostile powers.
R.  The Lion of the tribe of Judah has conquered, the root of David.
V.  Let Thy mercies be upon us, O Lord.
R.  As we have hoped in Thee.
V.  O Lord, hear my prayer.
R.  And let my cry come unto Thee.

Let us pray.
O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Thy holy Name, and as supplicants, we implore Thy clemency, that by the intercession of Mary, ever Virgin Immaculate and our Mother, and of the glorious St. Michael the Archangel, Thou wouldst deign to help us against Satan and all the other unclean spirits who wander about the world for the injury of the human race and the ruin of souls. Amen.”

Thank you for reading, I pray for you all, entrusting you and yours to the Immaculata. Please pray for our priests.

Now, more than ever – 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.

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

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

  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! 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!

Preparing for the Synod of Darkness, Part II

 

“But there were false prophets also among the people, just as among you there will be lying teachers who will bring in destructive sects. They even disown the Lord Who bought them, thus bringing upon themselves swift destruction.” (2 Pet. 2: 1)

Continuing with our recap of Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité’s writings on the Message of Fatima and its relevance for the current times, especially this Synod of Darkness. Editorial notes are in Black italics.

THE LOGIC OF THE PROPHECIES

Do we not know that the manifestation of the Impious or wicked one spoken of by the Apostle will be tied to the apostasy as its final development, before the final triumph and arrival of Christ Jesus? “And then the wicked one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will slay with the breath of His mouth and the brightness of His coming.” (2 Thess. 2: 8) But does not the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary have to prepare and immediately precede that of Her Son?

If this is so, do not the great apostasy and the revelation of the Impious one have to precede, in turn, the “final triumph” of the Immaculate Heart of Mary announced by the conclusion of the Secret? In the unfolding of the prophecies, the events predicted by Saint Paul seem to correspond to the same “intermediate period” as the one directly touched on by Our Lady’s third Secret.

We know that on July 6, 1851, Mélanie, the seer of La Salette, when writing down her secret so as to pass it on to Pope Pius IX, “asked the meaning of the word “infallibly”, and the correct spelling of the words ‘polluted city’, and ‘antichrist’. “

A STRIKING PROPHECY OF SAINT PIUS X

What we also know with sure knowledge, because it is an unquestionable fact, is the frightful progress made by impiety in our modern society. It is not an illusion to say that no period of the world’s history has seen this impiety, denounced by Saint Paul, pushed to such a point.

At the dawn of the century, Saint Pius X, in his inaugural encyclical, E supremi apostolatus cathedra, made this observation, seized with fright. The apostolic office frightened him, he avowed, precisely for this reason:

We felt a sort of terror, considering the disastrous conditions of humanity at the present hour. Can we ignore such a profound and grave evil, which at this moment much more than in the past, is working away at its very marrow and leading it to its ruin? You know what this malady is, Venerable Brethren, it is the abandoning of God and apostasy from Him; and without any doubt, nothing leads more surely to ruin, according to these words of the prophet: “Those who depart far from You perish.” (Ps. 72: 27)

“We understood that it belonged to Us, in virtue of the pontifical office entrusted to Us, to provide a remedy for such a great evil. We believed that this order of God was addressed to Us: ‘Behold, today I set you over nations and kingdoms, to tear down and destroy, to build up and to plant.’ ” (Jer. 1: 10) Further on, he denounces “the impious war which has been stirred up, and which continues almost everywhere, against God…”

What is the remedy?

“It is necessary, by every means, and at the price of any effort, to uproot entirely this monstrous and detestable iniquity proper to the times we are living in, and through which man substitutes himself for God.”

 

SAINT PIUS X ON THE SON OF PERDITION

And Saint Pius X, referring to the text we have just commented on, goes so far as to state that the Apostle’s prophecy has perhaps begun being fulfilled in our century:

“Truly, whoever ponders these things must necessarily and firmly fear whether such a perversion of minds is not the sign announcing, and the beginning of the last times, and that the Son of Perdition spoken of by the Apostle (2 Thess. 2: 3) might already be living on this earth. So great is the audacity and so great the rage with which religion is mocked everywhere, and the dogmas of the faith are fought against, there is a stubborn effort to completely suppress man’s duties towards God!

Now this, according to the same Apostle, is the character proper to Antichrist; man, with unspeakable temerity, has usurped the place of the Creator, lifting himself above everything that bears the name of God. It has reached such a point that, being powerless to completely extinguish in himself the notion of God, he nevertheless shakes off the yoke of His Majesty, and dedicates the visible world to himself in the guise of the temple, where he pretends to receive the adoration of his own kind… “He sits in the temple of God, and gives himself out as if he were God” (2 Thess. 2: 4).”

Saint Pius X gave this frightening diagnosis of the situation of the world on October 4, 1903. Who could dispute that since this date, the same evils he denounced then have only grown, and in gigantic proportions? What would he say today, when the atheistic, satanic Bolshevik Revolution is little by little extending to the entire planet… with the active complicity of so many leaders of the Church? [Frère Michel wrote this in the early 1980’s and now we can even more clearly see how dire the situation has become. We shall soon see the extension of this dark power to its maximum within the Church, providing the Synod fulfills its planned agenda.]

What would he say when the most scandalous immorality, [That is, the  institutionalized perversion in society and even in the Vatican itself.]  when murders on a grand scale, are permitted and encouraged by the law in Catholic nations themselves?  What would he say, now that Modernism, the “synthesis of all heresies”, manifests itself openly and enjoys the favour, or benevolent tolerance, of all the Pastors? In eighty-five years, [Now, in 2019, 116 years!] the evil has grown beyond measure and penetrated the very heart of the Church; it has reached its highest summit.

[Below, Frère Michel demonstrates how eloquently Pope Paul VI, in his closing speech for the Second Vatican Council, expressed the program of the enthroned enemy, of which  Saint Pius X had warned.]

PAUL VI ON THE “SON OF THE EARTH”

One  text alone is sufficient to show the immense distance covered, in falling into the abyss of apostasy. It is the discourse of Pope Paul VI on December 7, 1965, for the closing of the Council. It is impossible to reread these words, pronounced on such a solemn occasion, without pointing out the resemblances that impose themselves – both with the prophecy of the Apostle, as well as the interpretation clearly inspired by the Spirit given to us by Pius X, the saintly Pope of the twentieth century. Here is the essential passage, but the discourse is completely in the same vein:

“The Church of the Council, it is true… has been very much occupied with man, with man such as he proposes himself in reality to our time: living man, man completely occupied with himself, man who makes himself not only the centre of everything that interests him, but who dares to proclaim himself the principle and ultimate reason of all reality. This whole phenomenal man, that is, clothed with his innumerable appearances, has been placed before the assembly of Council Fathers…”

“Secularizing and profane humanism has appeared finally in its terrible stature, and has, in a certain sense, defied the Council. The religion of God Who became man has encountered the religion (for it is one) of man who makes himself God.”

“What happened? A clash, a battle, an anathema? This could have happened; but it did not take place. The old story of the Samaritan has been the model of the Council’s spirituality. An unlimited sympathy (sic) has pervaded it completely. The discovery of human needs (and they are all the greater, to the degree that the son of the earth [sic] makes himself greater) has absorbed our Synod’s attention. Recognize for it at least this merit, you modern humanists, who deny the transcendence of the highest things, and recognize our new humanism: we too, we more than anybody, have the cult of man.” (Pope Paul VI, Closing Speech at Vatican II, Dec. 7, 1965)

“Secularizing and profane humanism”, the “religion of man who makes himself God”, this is undoubtedly the Marxist religion – for it is a religion – and even more, the Masonic religion. But according to Saint Paul, and according to the entire, unanimous Catholic tradition up to Saint Pius X, up to Pius XII,  this is precisely the religion of the Impious one, the religion of Antichrist.

[And note too, regarding Paul VI’s quote above, the following quote from Apocalypse 13, 11: “And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.” In this prophecy, “the earth” refers to the Church. Thus, Pope Paul refers to the work of Lucifer within the Church at the top.]

Well, now! Towards this open, shameless Impiety, the supreme sin which Saint Paul abominates because it is satanic in its very essence, because it is the sin of the “Son of perdition”, who provokes God’s just wrath and merits eternal damnation – faced with “this monstrous and detestable iniquity proper to the times we are living in, and through which man substitutes himself for God”, as Saint Pius X said – the Council felt no animosity, Pope Paul VI declares to us. On the contrary, before this “son of the earth”, this “modern humanist” who today makes himself “greater” than ever in his open revolt against God, “an unlimited sympathy has pervaded the entire Council”.

For the first time, between the Ministers of God and the children of Belial, between the Vicar of Christ and the henchmen of the Adversary, there was neither a clash, nor a battle, nor an anathema. No, “a current of affection and admiration has overflowed from the Council over the modern human world”.  It is hardly necessary to make it clear that neither Jesus, Who “is Love” (1 Jn. 4: 8), nor Saint John His Evangelist, nor Saint Paul, the Apostle of the Gentiles, had ever thought of interpreting “the old story [sic] of the Samaritan” (in the words of PaulVI) this way. This new exegesis confuses the victim – “the man who fell among robbers” and was left by them “half dead”, over whom the “Good Samaritan”, Jesus Himself, lovingly bends – with the murderers, the “lawless men” which here mean Satan and his henchmen. [Note the correspondence between Pope Paul and Pope Francis. And also see our post on Pope Francis and Judas.]

Is not this fallacious exegesis, instead, one of the “lying prodigies” of which Saint Paul speaks to the Thessalonians? And one wonders: by what “misleading influence, that they may believe falsehood” (2 Thess. 2: 11-12), not a single one of the 2,400 bishops present dared to denounce, immediately, the Impiety of such statements? 

[Here I must add for the sake of clarity, that Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre did, as history has now shown, make the correct judgement on Paul VI and the Second Vatican Council, but it is true that he did not do so immediately, as such a move was not to be taken lightly.]

One shudders to think that Pope Paul VI pronounced this impious discourse, where he dared to proclaim openly his own “cult of man”, seated on his throne at Saint Peter’s, at Rome itself. This was perhaps, foretold by St. Louis de Montfort.

 

ST. LOUIS DE MONTFORT FORETELLS: “IMPIETY IS ON THE THRONE”

Has not the hour come to recite once more, with Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort, his prophetic “Prière embrasée”, beseeching God to intervene to save “His Church, so weakened and so soiled by the crimes of its children”, to extinguish the raging fire of apostasy, which is in the process of devouring it:

Prayer of St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort

Tempus faciendi, Domine, dissipaverunt legem tuam: it is time, Lord, to do what You have promised to do. Your Divine Law is transgressed, Your Gospel is abandoned, the torrents of iniquity flood the entire world, and even carry away Your servants, the whole earth is desolate, Impiety is on the throne, your Sanctuary has been profaned and the Abomination is even in the Holy Place (Dan. 9: 27; Mt. 24: 15). Oh, permit me to shout everywhere: Fire, fire, fire! Help, help, help! Fire in God’s house, fire in souls, fire even in the Sanctuary!

Is it not this same prophetic warning, this same vehement appeal which the Immaculate Virgin Herself came to give the Church, in the triple Secret of July 13, 1917?

  • “Fire in souls”: this is the first part of the Secret, the vision of hell.
  • “Fire in God’s house”: this is Christendom threatened by the Bolshevik conflagration, [that is, the spread of the errors of Russia].
  • “Fire in the Sanctuary”: this is the devastating apostasy, which has reached even the summit of the Church.It is the prophecy of the Third Secret.

[End of quote from Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité.]

Although Pope Paul VI was not the Antichrist, in our earlier posts, “A Brief Review”“Seven Trumpets 2019” we discussed the “Fallen Star” prophesied in Apocalypse 9, 1-2. 

And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit.
And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit.

Clearly Paul VI served the agenda of antichrist, and today we see his successor, Francis, in a similar light, relentlessly advancing the same agenda, which is now reaching its culmination. We have also, in earlier posts, argued that Francis I is likely the Second Beast, the Beast from the Earth or as Paul VI said, “Son of the Earth”.

We have also indicated, in a previous post , The Smoke of Satan, an Apostate Pope and the Message of Fatima, that on the 50 year anniversary of the preliminary enthronement, the complete enthronement most likely occurred in June, 2013, once Bergoglio had ascended to the papacy, thus granting the antichristic powers complete control over the Church. For the moment, it seems as though they have won.

Now is the time to review our posts on St. Hildegard’s Beast prophecies. I hope you will do so!

Please forgive me but once again I must stress the importance of living the message of Fatima. Rosary. Scapular. Consecration. Sacrificial spirit in all our daily duties and First Saturdays of Reparation. Avoiding the comfortable sins of everyday life that permeate our surroundings, the narcissism of social media. Root out all the little deceits so commonplace in our “modern” lives. With every heart beat, every breath, love for Our Lady. Love for Our dear Lord Jesus Christ. Reparative love. Sacrificial love.

Keep always in mind that we are only Mary’s children insofar as we are able to proclaim with our most Blessed Mother, “My soul doth magnify the Lord!” And yet, how can we say that? How can we “magnify the Lord”?

Mary’s soul, so pure and unblemished, radiated back God’s love with which she was so filled. You see she radiated the very essence of God, Who is love. Now Satan radiates hatred as do those who serve him. Hatred and deceit and murder are his trademarks and you see them multiplied in millions of lost souls around you. Look at the hatred, the vulgarity, the deceit and rotten death permeating all, particularly this Bergoglian version of the church. This absolute necessity of our sacrificial spirit is precisely for the sake of love. Surely you know that She – the Mother of Fair Love – will triumph through love! As Saint John of the Cross reminds us, “Where there is not love, put in love and you will draw out love”. And, “In the evening of life, learn to love as God loves.”

And here’s the thing. Many will be tempted to think they were misled. We are so used to instant gratification today that if we do not see the east coast of the United States washed away in a tsunami, or an immediate muslim takeover of Rome, we will think our penance in vain. Penance is never in vain. I hope we have documented that it is the will of Our Lady – and more, it is the will of God – that we do this, whether or not we see any results at all. But I do firmly believe that we will see results fairly soon now. For we are told by Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself,  “As in the days of Noah …”

Thank you  for reading. I hope to be able to make a final summary to bring things up to date a little more clearly, but at present am not sure that I can within this time frame.

The Nations Will Rise Up Against You

 

“By God’s permission the nations will rise up against you; they will have vain thoughts of you; they will esteem as naught your priestly dignity and consecration. The princes of the earth will unite to cast you down. Your rulers will drive you from their territories, since your crimes have driven the innocent Lamb far from you.”   (St. Hildegard von Bingen)

Yesterday was the day in our Traditional Calendar when we honor the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It was also the anniversary of the day on which Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò signed his testimonial regarding the extensive corruption of the sacred priesthood by the homosexual predators which have infiltrated the Church aided and abetted by the modernist, apostate hierarchy, even up to and including Pope Francis himself.

As long-time readers know, we have posted on the dangers to the sacred priesthood since the inception of this blog several years ago, stressing the connection between the message of Fatima and the spread of heresy, apostasy and the corruption of the sacred priesthood.

I had hoped that the fact that Archbishop Viganò issued his testimonial on the traditional (true) Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary would be duly noted and celebrated as the victory of the Immaculata which it is. Even though Abp. Viganò referred to the date as the Queenship of Mary, that is the term assigned by the Novus Ordo church to replace that of the title intended by Pope Pius XII. Since 1960, the post-conciliar church has been determined to supplant and minimise devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and their efforts seem to be bearing fruit in the lack of honor to the Immaculata in her latest victory.

The Prophetic Silence of Knock

 

The crisis that Our Lady predicted in La Salette, in which Rome becomes the seat of the Antichrist and represents the eclipse of the Church, St. John also prophesied in the Apocalypse. It is this prophecy which is being fulfilled by  the present pope.

Today, we commemorate the eloquently silent apparition of Our Lady at Knock, Ireland, August 21, 1879. By her silence, Our Lady emphasised at once her displeasure that her message at La Salatte was being attacked, and as many believe, she was pointing to the silence recounted in chapter 8 of the Apocalypse.  But there is still another reason for the silence – it is a warning against silencing the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and outrages against the Holy Eucharist and it beckons us with mysterious silence towards the visions of the Apocalypse.

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, 2019

 

NOTE: This post has considerable new material. I hope that regular readers will not dismiss it as just another re-post.

In the year of Our Lord 2019, we face an unprecedented crisis – the world has lost its Faith, and the Vicar of Christ himself is leading the Church which Christ founded into the very heart of darkness. To a world starving for the Bread of Life, this Pope offers the stone of eco-paganism. For more on this, please see Cardinal Brandmüller on Bergoglio’s apostasy here. What can be done? Who can effectively confront this man?

 

Hapless are they who neglect Mary under pretext of the honor to be paid to Jesus Christ! As if the Child could be found elsewhere than with the Mother!”  (Pope St. Pius X, Ad Diem Illum Laetissimum, 1904)

Today is the Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. In the miraculous image, the Christ Child confronted with the Archangels Gabriel (on His left) and Michael (on His right) carrying the instruments of the Crucifixion, has turned to His most Blessed Mother for solace.

But the most poignant detail in the image is the loosened sandal dangling from the Christ Child’s foot — the image invites us to “complete it” by considering the Blessed Mother tenderly fastening her Divine Son’s sandal, ever attending to His needs. The instruments of Our Lord’s Crucifixion also call to mind that at His Crucifixion Christ gave her to us to be our Mother, a role that she displays in this richly complex image, Mother of Perpetual Help.

Devotion to Our Lady as Our Mother of Perpetual Help is an ancient devotion but it is ever new — we never “progress”  so much that we no longer need God’s grace, which He dispenses through the lovely hands of the Immaculata. For centuries now, she has extended those hands to us, offering us the way to restore the Church, and restore our souls. But centuries have passed, and her warnings and promises have been mostly ignored.

It is disingenuous for today’s Catholic pundits to wring their hands at the crisis as though nobody saw this coming and as though the situation is hopeless. Our Lord assured Sister Lúcia that it is never too late to turn to the Sacred Hearts and Our Lady of the Rosary promised Lúcia that she would triumph in the end. She gave us a plan; it is her message of Fatima.

But here we are, awaiting the next stroke of the pope’s axe to the roots of the faith. The Pan-Amazon Synod will occur 102 years after Our Lady’s last visit at Fatima, Portugal. The prophecies are being fulfilled before our eyes as Pope Francis prepares to enact Saint Hildegard’s “Figure of a Woman” vision — the stinking head will attempt to challenge the true head of the Church. He wants to destroy the sacred priesthood and especially the Most Blessed Sacrament. As he indicated on the Feast of Corpus Christi, reversing the doctrine of transubstantiation to assert that Jesus becomes bread. There is ample evidence that this Pan-Amazon Synod has been over 40 years in the planning and it will be followed by the German Bishops who intend to assert the right to sodomy.

One commentator recently indicated that we “cling to our beads” among other things to help us endure this disastrous state of affairs. Now, Our Lady asked for us to pray the Rosary, not “cling to beads”. And trusting in God is fine as far as it goes, but since Jesus Christ has specifically asked for us to make reparation, to make of all our duties a sacrifice, perhaps we might consider obeying Him along with the trusting. The Holy Ghost has guided us through thousands of years of Divine Revelation, the importance of returning in chastened humility and repentance to obey the commands of God.  It is never too late to return to the message of Fatima!

We must do more than endure, this is a battle and we must win! Take up your Rosaries and pray as though your immortal souls depend on it! For they do and the souls of many others depend on us too. And pray to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, or Our Lady of Victory, or perhaps the Irresistible Novena the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Whichever devotion you choose to add, please consider sticking with it on through the October Synod. This is very important.

Now is not the time to lose heart. This is the time we have been expecting, indeed, waiting for. Now is the time for us to prove our mettle — we are her children, after all! And we remember, that she “comes forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, and terrible as an army, set in array”!

The darkness, even the heart of darkness, has no hold over the Immaculata!

Please also don’t forget, the First Saturdays are so important! If you are truly unable to make them, and these chaotic times do make it next to impossible for many of us — talk with a good priest and ask if he will allow you to make your First Saturday of Reparation on another day. My priest allowed this due to some problems I’m having. Our Blessed Mother sees the thoughts of our hearts and she knows we are doing our very best to make of each day, a day of reparation and show her our love and devotion in many, many ways.

The Vision of Tuy, 1929

 

“The moment has come … ”

With these words, Our Lady of Fatima began the most significant and mystical vision of all the Marian apparitions when she appeared to Sister Lúcia at Tuy on June 13, 1929.

In this post we will attempt to understand the vision and its message for us today in light of the Apocalypse and recent events.

Previously, in Apocalypse 12 we saw that great red dragon, whom Pope Leo XIII referred to as, “the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan” go to war against the Woman clothed with the Sun, and prepare to make war with “her seed”, the faithful Church.  Chapter 12 ends:

And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.  And he stood upon the sand of the sea.

Now, we arrive at Apocalypse 13, which reveals the strategy of the dragon, which is satan. In her book, “Beyond Politics”, Solange Hertz describes the scene for us,

Before St. John’s eyes a diabolic trinity began taking shape which appears to be a blasphemous parody of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. The Apostle sees a beast coming up out of the sea, followed by another beast coming from the earth. These two are joined in a close relationship with each other and with the Dragon, who is, of course, Satan himself, and who animates and directs them in such a way that the three operate as one. St. John saw the Dragon give the first beast “his own strength and great power,” so that the reprobates “adored the dragon which gave power to the beast.” The second beast also derives his power from the Dragon, but through the medium of the first beast. We are told, “He executed all the power of the former beast in his sight; and he caused the earth and them that dwell therein to adore the first beast,” just as this first beast had caused them to adore the Dragon. Thus the Dragon mimics the role of God the Father in the Blessed Trinity, source of both the Son and the Holy Ghost, whose parts are played by the two Beasts in the diabolic threesome.

What does St. John tell us of this second beast, the one who arises from the earth, which is symbolic of the Church? 

“And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight; and he caused the earth, and them that dwell therein, to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed.” (Apocalypse 13, 11-12)

Thus, we see that this second beast appears as a lamb, but “he spoke as a dragon”. This warns us that although the beast masquerades as the leader of Christians, he has a diabolic agenda. The reader will draw his own conclusions. For now, we simply point out that St. John’s vision of the diabolical trinity also represents a  reversal of Christendom.  In the diabolical vision, the State derives from Satan and then, the so-called “Church” (one world religion of man) derives from the State and serves the State, not God. This is the direct reversal of Christendom in which Christ reigns over all. This vision is the same as that proposed by Pope Paul VI at the close of Vatican II and most thoroughly exemplified by the new Bergoglian church, which occupies the Vatican and seeks now to draw all  into its deadly grasp, the Franciscans of the Immaculate, the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta, and reached for the Society of St. Pius X (albeit unsuccessfully!). And who is there to withstand him?

Let us compare that vision of St. John’s with the remarkable vision granted to Sister Lucia at Tuy, June 13, 1929.

The Vision of Tuy

The moment has come …

 

Suddenly a supernatural light illumined the whole chapel and on the altar appeared a cross of light which reached to the ceiling.  In a brighter part could be seen, on the upper part of the Cross, the face of a man and His body to the waist;  On His breast was an equally luminous dove,  and nailed to the cross, the body of another man. 

A little below the waist, suspended in mid-air, was to be seen a Chalice and a large Host on to which fell some drops of Blood from the face of the Crucified and from a wound in His breast. These drops ran down over the Host and fell into the Chalice. 

Under the right arm of the Cross was Our Lady with Her Immaculate Heart in Her hand … (It was Our Lady of Fatima with Her Immaculate Heart… in Her left hand… without a sword or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames…) 

Under the left arm (of the Cross), some big letters, as it were of crystal-clear water running down over the Altar, formed these words: “Grace and Mercy”.

“I understood that it was the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity that was shown to me …”

Then Our Lady said to me:

On the eve of the battle

 

“With great longing I desire the spread of devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for this heart is the magnet that draws hearts to Me, the heart that radiates to the world the streams of my light and my love. It is finally, the inexhaustible spring from which flows into the world the living water of my mercy.” (Our Lord Jesus Christ to Sister Lucia, 1943, quoted in Sister Lucia’s letter to Bishop Gurza, May 27, 1943)

Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night before He died for our sins, promised us, “I will not leave you orphans.” Thus, he spoke to Sister Lúcia in 1943 in order to offer us in this sad Passion of His Church, the Immaculate Heart of His Mother as the inexhaustible spring of living water of His Mercy. Those who remain obstinately indifferent to this do so to their own eternal destruction.

It can be difficult to discern the true path amidst this diabolical smoke and carnage of the great spiritual battle. But Our Lord offers us the remedy: the Heart of Mary, that radiates His light and love to strengthen and guide us safely. In the Message of Fatima, we are given  a key to comprehend the mysterious passage in Chapter 12, Apocalypse:  Continue reading “On the eve of the battle”

Divine Providence Part 2

We are in the midst of the greatest spiritual chastisement in all of salvation history and tragically, most Catholics are not in any way making use of it. If we waste these graces we shall be swept up in the wreckage and perhaps into perdition.

And so, we continue from yesterday’s post regarding the Will of God in all things

Saint-Jure likens the evil-doers to leeches employed by a physician in order to purify and bring about a recovery. For us to focus on the repulsiveness of the leeches, only distracts us from our task of cooperating with the will of God, for the trials we are experiencing are, in the hands of the Divine Physician, merely tools for our salvation. Speaking of the evil-doers, Saint-Jure says,

Whatever their particular views may be, in regard to us they are only instruments of well being, guided by the hand of an all-good, all-wise, all-powerful God who will allow them to act on us only in so far as is of use to us. It is in our interest to welcome instead of trying to repel their assaults, as in very truth they come from God. [Note: Welcome as Christ welcomed His Passion and Death, with humble obedience to God’s will.] And it is the same with all creatures of whatever kind. Not one of them could act upon us unless the power were given it from above. This truth has always been familiar to the minds of those truly enlightened by God. We have a celebrated example in Job. He loses his children and his possessions; he falls from the height of fortune to the depths of poverty. And he says ‘The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away. As it hath pleased the Lord, so is it done. Blessed be the name of the Lord.’

St. Augustine notes,  “Job does not say ‘The Lord gave and the devil hath taken away’ but says, wise that he is, ‘The Lord gave me my children and my possessions, and it is He who has taken them away; it has been done as it has pleased the Lord.’ ”

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.

He Is Not Sleeping!

“And when He entered into the boat, His disciples followed Him: And behold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but He was asleep. And they came to Him, and awaked Him, saying: ‘Lord, save us, we perish.’ And Jesus saith to them: ‘Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith?’ Then rising up He commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm. But the men wondered, saying: ‘What manner of man is this, for the winds and the sea obey Him?’ “  (Matt. 8, 23-27)

He is not sleeping! He is chastening us! This is the spiritual chastisement which will deepen until we obey.

The quote above was from the reading for yesterday’s Gospel, the 24th Sunday after Pentecost. This Gospel is often applied today to the situation we are suffering through with the current pope of affliction who appears to be determined to sink the Barque of Peter, imperilling all within it. The concept of Our Lord sleeping through the storm which threatens us is a popular one with many Catholic sites today. A dear reader sent me one such quote from a prominent blog which took that view. Now, before we discuss the quote, please understand that I am not attacking another Catholic writer, but simply offering a perspective which keeps getting overlooked by many influential writers.

Now, let’s take a look at the quote which was sent to me:

“How could we expect God to turn a blind eye to the sacrilege and heresy that is endemic to almost every Novus Ordo Mass offered on the planet for the last 49 years – while the entire Church sat in the silence of complicity, more concerned with worldly approval than the Sacred, Wounded Heart of Our Blessed Lord, and His Mother?

“So, yes, He is sleeping under the poop as the storm rages, but we must remember His admonition: Why are you fearful? have you not faith yet? He will rise up, and He will say, “Peace, be still.” And the Barque of Peter will be saved from these devils, and it will lower its nets and bring in a great harvest of souls. We know this. We CANNOT doubt this.

“So, while I, in my weakness, like everyone else, keep thinking, “Please wake up, please wake up, we’re dying, we’re dying”, -these very words are in today’s Gospel and repeated again as nothing less than the antiphon of the Magnificat at Vespers:Lord, save us: * we perish; give the word, O God, and let there be a great calm!I am just going to go back to the poop deck and kneel down next to Him, stare at His Holy Face and keep whispering: Wake up, wake up. Save us. We are perishing.See you on the poop deck! Wake up… wake up.”

The above quote was from Bishop Rene Gracida’s post, “For reasons known only to the Lord, He seems to be asleep on the Barque of Peter but we have confidence that when He ‘wakes’ He will calm the hurricane Bergoglia” , in which he was quoting Barnhardt’s post, “We Perish! And Yet He Snoozeth on the Poop Deck” here. Please do note that I am not intending to attack either writer, but to provide what I hope will be a helpful interpretation of the storm in the light of Our Lady’s message at Fatima.
