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.

Christ the King, 2018

 

Today, the last Sunday of October, we honor Our Lord Jesus Christ, King.

During His Passion, Pilate asked Our Lord Jesus Christ, “Art Thou the King of the Jews?” As St. John relates,

Jesus answered: ‘My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now My kingdom is not from hence.’ Pilate therefore said to Him: Art Thou a king then? Jesus answered: ‘Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth My voice.’

Pilate saith to Him: ‘What is truth?’ And when he said this, he went out again to the Jews…” (John 18, 33-38)

‘Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth My voice.’

Notice that Pilate, after asking Jesus, “What is truth?” walked away without attending to His answer. Isn’t that typical of the posturing of the leaders of this world! Here is Jesus telling us that everyone who is of the truth hears His voice and Pilate proves that he is not of the truth by ignoring Christ the King’s voice.

Picture if you will, our King as He must have looked when He said these words, not in front of a cheering crowd, but instead, a jeering mob crying for His crucifixion and death. Not wearing splendid garments but clothed in His bloodied and dirtied robe; not crowned with gold and jewels but with hateful thorns. Thus His appearance affirms His message, that is, that His Kingdom is not of this world. There is enmity between His Kingdom and the false kingdoms of this world. It is a kingdom so sublime that nothing this world can do can impinge upon it, and it will have no end.

By affirming that “My kingdom is not of this world”, Our Lord was teaching that contrary to worldly kings who maintain  their transient rule by force of arms, by worldly power, His kingdom is absolute, it exists beyond time and will never end. His rule in encoded in our hearts, minds, in our wills and we ignore it at the peril of our souls.  There is no escaping it, and whether we accept it, shrug it off with indifference or combat it actively, we nevertheless serve it. Until He comes in glory, we must, in obedience to our thorn-crowned King, serve Him and proclaim His sovereignty in truth and love in all we do.

Make no mistake: our choice is clear: We will serve one or the other: Christ will be our King or by default we serve the ancient enemy of Christ, Satan.

Thirty-two years of Assisi vs. Christ the King

On this day in 1986, Pope John Paul II presided over the sacrilegious “ecumenical” meeting in Assisi. Since tomorrow is the great feastday of Christ the King, it is a good idea to consider the affront offered to Our Lord on that dismal day and the response to it by a faithful prelate.

The following is from a talk given by Archbishop Lefebvre on June 29, 1987. (Link)

“We wrote the book that appeared just a few days ago, entitled: “They Uncrowned Him.”  Who? Who did the uncrowning and who was uncrowned? Who was uncrowned? Our Lord Jesus Christ. Who uncrowned him? The authorities in Rome today. And the uncrowning shows in a very clear way in the Assisi ceremony. Jesus Christ is uncrowned. He is no longer King. Universal King, the King we proclaim in our liturgy from Christmas through to His Ascension. All the Liturgical feasts proclaim the kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ. . From end to end of the Liturgical year we chant:

“King of Kings, Lord of Lords,” Our Lord Jesus Christ. But now instead of extolling the kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ, here they are instituting a pantheon of all religions. And just as it was the Roman authorities, or pagan emperors, who built the pagan Pantheon then, so too the pagan pantheon of today, the meeting-place of all religions, is being constructed by the church authorities of Rome! What an immense scandal for souls, for Catholics who already question the universal kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ!

This is exactly what is meant by liberalism. Liberalism means establishing the freedom of man from God; hence the man who believes in, hopes in, and professes any religion whatsoever is just as worthy of respect as the man who says he professes the true religion.

And Holy Mass proves it to us: there is one law, a law of love, and Our Lord Jesus Christ proclaims to us on the Cross this law of love. He preaches it to us. He tells us. “You must obey the law of love. Whosoever does not obey the law of love is not worthy of eternal life.” Hence it is a binding law. We are not free. Our holy religion is not a matter of free choice, it is the only one, the one which Our Lord Jesus Christ proclaimed from His Cross.

And liberalism has become the idol of modern times, an idol now adored in most countries of the world, even the Catholic countries – this liberty of man from God, which defies God, which seeks to make its own religion, liberalism, with its own commandments, the rights of man, with its secular states, secular education, empty of God, godless – there is liberalism for you.

DARKNESS IN ROME

And how is it possible for the authorities in Rome to be encouraging liberalism and professing such liberalism in the Decree on Religious Liberty? That is what is so very serious, as I see it. Rome is in darkness, in the darkness of error. There is no denying it. Impossible to deny it. How can we as Catholics, and all the more as priests, bear to look on the spectacle placed before our eyes in Assisi, in St. Peter’s Church given over for the practice of their pagan worship to the Buddhists who put their idol on the tabernacle of Jesus Christ, King of Kings, and performed their pagan ceremony in front of this tabernacle, empty no doubt, but capped with a Buddha, their idol. Is it conceivable? In a Catholic Church, a church of Our Lord Jesus Christ? These are facts which speak by themselves. We cannot conceive of an error more grave.

For our part, however, if we wish to remain Catholic and to continue the Church, we have the grave and imprescriptible duty binding us firstly to increase the number of priests, priests believing in Our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Kingship, in His kingship over society, according to the Church’s doctrine. That is why I am happy that the book on liberalism has appeared today, my dear friends, so that you may nourish your minds on it and grasp in depth what our combat is all about. It is not a human combat! We are at grips with Satan! It is a combat requiring all the supernatural strength we need to fight against the adversary who means to destroy and uproot the Church, who means to destroy everything Our Lord Jesus Christ did. He meant to destroy Our Lord from the moment He was born, and now he means to continue destroying His Mystical Body, to destroy the reign of Our Lord Jesus Christ, to destroy all His institutions whatsoever.

So we must be aware of this dramatic and apocalyptic combat through which we are living, and not play it down, because the moment we play it down, we no longer wish to give battle, we become weaklings and we dare no longer proclaim the Truth; we no longer dare to proclaim the social kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ because our godless and atheistic world does not want to hear of it. To say that Our Lord Jesus Christ should reign over societies is folly as far as the world is concerned. “You are backward-looking, out-of-date fossils, stuck fast in the Middle Ages”, we hear, “that doctrine is over and done with, it belongs to the past! Let’s hear no more of Our Lord Jesus Christ reigning over societies!”

 

And so we might tend to be afraid of this public opinion opposing us because we stand for the kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us in any case not be surprised to find that any demonstrations of ours in favour of the Social Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ come up against an army directed by Satan to destroy us, to hinder and nullify any influence we might have.

THE SOCIETY’S CONTINUATION

Hence we are happy today to be carrying out these priestly ordinations, and in all sincerity we think it is not possible to abandon the Society of St. Pius X placed in our hands by the good Lord. For it is not I that founded it, it is truly Our Lord who founded it, in unbelievable circumstances. And now, after some 17 years of existence, our Society has spread throughout the world, seconded by other initiatives which – thanks be to God – have arisen with us and around us: all the religious and nuns with us today, who have stood up like ourselves, to proclaim that Our Lord Jesus Christ is King, and not to desert Him. Are we going to desert Him? Are we going to let Him be crucified a second time? Are we going to quit the Church presently undergoing her Passion, and not come to her aid? And what will become of souls if nobody dares any longer proclaim the divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ? And what will become of souls if we no longer provide them with the true grace they need? All this is cryingly obvious, and so let us be convinced of it.

MEANS OF CONTINUATION

And that is the reason why it is likely that I shall give myself some successors to be able to continue the work of our Society. Because Rome is in darkness, because Rome at present can no longer hear the voice of truth – Rome no longer hears the voice of truth. Then what are we to do? What answer has there been to our appeals? For 20 years now I have been going to Rome. I have been writing, I have been speaking, I have been sending documents to say to them: – “Follow Tradition, come back to Tradition, otherwise the Church will be ruined. You, the appointed successors of those who built the Church, you must continue to build and not to demolish!” They are deaf, stone deaf to our appeals.

And the last document we have just received from them proves it amply. They are shutting themselves up in their errors, they are shutting themselves up in darkness, and they are quite simply going to lead souls into apostasy, the ruination of the divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the ruination of the Catholic and Christian Faith. Well, if that is what God asks of us, we shall not hesitate to provide ourselves with auxiliaries to continue the work of the Society, for we cannot believe that God wishes this work to be destroyed, to come to an end, to continue no further, for souls to be abandoned and for the Church by that very fact to have no more pastors.

ABNORMAL TIMES

We are living in a quite unique age, we must realize that. The situation is not normal, least of all in Rome. Read the Italian journal “Si, si, no, no”, edited by the dear Sisters who are here today, who have come to see Econe and to get some encouragement for the work they are doing. The journal “Si, si, no, no” gives us precise information on the situation in Rome, a perfectly incredible situation, unparallelled in all history! Never has there been anything like it!

Never! – The Pope making himself, as I was saying a little while ago, into a sort of guardian of the Pantheon of all religions, making himself the Pontiff of Liberalism! Tell me, tell me, pray – has such a situation ever existed in the Church? What are we to do, faced with such a reality? Weep, no doubt. Oh. weep, we do! Our heart is grieved, our heart is crushed by this situation! We would give our life, we would shed our blood to turn it around – but there it is.

. . .

My dear friends, my dear brethren, let us pray. Let us pray with all our hearts, let us pray to the Blessed Virgin Mary! We shall go to Fatima on August 22nd to ask Our Lady of Fatima to help us. They would not reveal her Third Secret, they buried the message of the Virgin Mary. No doubt this message was meant to prevent what is happening today. Had her message been made known, most likely we would not be where we are today, the situation in Rome, would not be what it is today.

The Pope refused to make public the Virgin Mary’s message: well, the punishments foretold by Mary are coming: the apostasy announced in Scripture is on its way; the coming of the Anti-Christ draws near, as is perfectly obvious. So, faced with this quite exceptional situation, we too must take exceptional means.

† . † . †

Dear readers, these are exceptional times, and in times like these, we need more than ever to cling to the faith, not depart from it! We need most especially, to confirm each other in the faith! By our daily sacrifices, especially those which only we are aware of, by little efforts at patience, forgiveness, generosity, we are blessed by Our Lady with the special graces she is allowed by Our Heavenly Father for assisting the faithful in these sad times. She dispenses God’s graces and mercy towards us, knowing how weak we are, knowing how easily we get discouraged.

For 32 years now, this grievous insult has stood in flagrant opposition to Christ the King, offered by the anti-Christic forces in power and supported by the popes who represent not God but His ancient enemy. Despite what you may hear on every other purported traditional Catholic site, please understand the importance of returning to the message of Fatima and . offering anew the humble, obedient sacrifices of reparation that are demanded. Only by humility and obedience can this evil of pride and disobedience be driven from the Church. Only in this way can the world have peace. Until Christ our King is proclaimed, there can be no peace, but only the reign of deceit, lust and despair resulting from apostasy.

  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!

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

The Message of Fatima, Essential Things

 

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

† . † . † 

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Sacrifice yourselves for sinners, and say many times, especially when you make some sacrifice: ‘O Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.’ “

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

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

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

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

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

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

If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.

In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
  St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

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

Pope Francis tells us about Mary: “a normal girl”

By now, you’ve all  heard  the latest in Pope Bergoglio’s ongoing attack against the Immaculata.

The Pope: “I’ll tell you about Mary, a normal girlˮ. He went to say,

“From the moment she was born until the Annunciation, to the moment she encountered the angel of God, I imagine her as a normal girl, a girl of today, I can’t say she (sic) a city-girl, because she is from a small town, but normal, educated normally, open to marrying, to starting a family. One thing I imagine is that she loved the Scriptures: she knew the Scriptures, she had done catechesis in a family environment, from the heart. Then, after the conception of Jesus, she was still a normal woman: Mary is normal, she is a woman that any woman in this world can imitate. No strange things in life, a normal mother: even in her virginal marriage, chaste in that frame of virginity, Mary was normal. She worked, went shopping, helped her Son, helped her husband: normal”. (From La Stampa’s Vatican Insider.)

Thus, in just one brief paragraph, Bergoglio’s hatred of the Mother of God claims that Mary is “normal” eight times, and asserts that she was “open to starting a family”.  

About Mary, a Normal Girl

Blessed Pope Pius IX: “We declare, announce, and define that the doctrine which states that the Blessed Virgin Mary was preserved, in the first instant of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of God Omnipotent and because of the merits of Jesus Christ the Saviour of the human race, free from all stain of original sin, is revealed by God and must therefore be believed firmly and with constancy by all the faithful” Pope Francis: “I’ll tell you about Mary, a normal girl.”

Blessed Pope Pius IX, pray for the Pope, pray for us!

Saint John Eudes: “Mary was filled with such eminent grace at the moment of her Immaculate Conception that she already surpassed the chief of Seraphim and the greatest of Saints.” Pope Francis: “I imagine her as a normal girl, a girl of today.”

St. John Eudes, pray for the Pope, pray for us!

Saint John Eudes quotes St. Bernardine of Siena:  “All the gifts and graces of the Holy Ghost descended into the soul and heart of this heavenly Virgin in such fullness, especially when she conceived the Son of God within her chaste womb, that her Heart forms an abyss of grace which no human or angelic intellect can comprehend.” Pope Francis: “Mary is normal, she is a woman that any woman in this world can imitate. No strange things in (her) life, a normal mother:”

St. Bernardine of Siena, pray for the Pope, pray for us!

St. Padre Pio: “She was conceived without sin, and through her came grace to mankind. Protected with Grace by Him who was to be the Saviour of Mankind that had fallen into sin, she escaped all shadow of evil. She sprang from the mind of God as a pure ray of light, and will shine like a morning star over the human race that turns to her.” Pope Francis: “I’ll tell you about Mary, a normal girlˮ

St. Pio, pray for the Pope, pray for us!

Saint Padre Pio: “She will be the sure guide who will direct our steps toward the Divine Sun which is Jesus Christ. He makes her radiant with divine splendor and points to her as our model of purity and sanctity. No creature surpasses her. After Almighty God, she is the most perfect of creatures; more pure than the angels; God is indeed well pleased in her, since she most resembles Him and is the only worthy repository of His secrets.”  Pope Francis: “after the conception of Jesus, she was still a normal woman: Mary is normal,”

St. Pio, pray for the Pope, pray for us!

St. John Damascene: “Oh blessed Virgin, thou art born to procure the salvation of the whole world!” Pope Francis: “No strange things in (her)  life, a normal mother:”

St. John Damascene, pray for the Pope, pray for us!

St. Alphonsus Liguori quotes St. Bernard: Mary was already prefigured in the ark of Noah; for as by the ark men were saved from the deluge, so by Mary we are saved from the shipwreck of sin; but with this difference, that by means of the ark few only were saved, but by means of Mary the whole human race has been redeemed. Pope Francis: “I’ll tell you about Mary, a normal girl.”

St. Alphonus Liguori, pray for the Pope, pray for us!

Prayer of Reparation for Blasphemy Against the Blessed Virgin Mary

Most glorious Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, turn thine eyes in pity upon us, miserable sinners; we are sorely afflicted by the many evils that surround us in this life, but especially do we feel our hearts break within us upon hearing the dreadful insults and blasphemies uttered against thee, O Virgin Immaculate.

O how these impious sayings offend the infinite Majesty of God and of His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ! How they provoke His indignation and give us cause to fear the terrible effects of His vengeance! Would that the sacrifice of our lives might avail to put an end to such outrages and blasphemies! Were it so, how gladly we should make that sacrifice; for we desire, O most holy Mother, to love thee and to honor thee with all our hearts, since this is the will of God. And because we love thee, we will do all that is in our power to make thee honored and loved by all men.

In the meantime do thou, our merciful Mother, the supreme comforter of the afflicted, accept this our act of reparation which we offer thee for ourselves and for all our families, as well as for all who impiously blaspheme thee, not knowing what they say. Do thou obtain for them from Almighty God the grace of conversion, and thus render more manifest and more glorious thy kindness, thy power and thy great mercy. May they join with us in proclaiming thee blessed among women, the Immaculate Virgin and most compassionate Mother of God. Amen.

† . † . † 

Remember Sister Lucia’s words to Father Fuentes (and to us) about the message of the Virgin: 

She told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Also, from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.“

 

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

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

Thoughts of a dry brain

For some reason, readers have asked for an encore of this old post from 3 years ago. So much has happened since this was posted a few years back. But since you asked, here goes another trip down memory lane…

 

The Never-ending Springtime of Vatican II
The Never-ending Springtime of Vatican II

 

A funny thing happened today. Odd how little things can build up and suddenly, boom! Your life has changed irreversibly in just one small moment. For years now, my husband and I have been sneaking down to Mass at the SSPX Chapel an hour and a half drive from us. In heavy traffic, the drive can take twice as long. I say that we sneak, because most Sundays, we have to settle for a TLM at a Novus Ordo Parish we will call St. Nowhere in a city closer to us. The Latin Mass community at that Church has strong antipathy towards the SSPX and I was shunned for nearly a year after merely mentioning that I support them financially.  The priest at St. Nowhere, we’ll call Father X, told members of the TLM Community that the Bishop does not allow parishioners to attend SSPX Mass and inferred that to do so was grounds for excommunication. Now I did not hear him say that because as luck would have it, I was at SSPX Mass that Sunday.  But the same priest asked me once, why I missed Mass the previous Sunday. I am ashamed to say I did my infamous little, “Oh look, there’s a butterfly!” ditsy old lady thing and slipped away from him.

However, today, that viral video of the candlelight procession by the SSPX community in Kansas was sent to me by a prominent member of our local Latin Mass Society. I responded rather more strongly than I should have and just to be honest about things, I copied it to the St. Nowhere priest. After going that far, I was flush with the exuberance one gets from derring-do, and so I decided to forward my response to a couple other Catholics who attend St. Nowhere’s Latin Mass in case they might like to know of my wickedness. I attached an explanatory note to them as well. Since the cat’s out of the bag,  I may as well let you all in on it, in fact, just shout it from the housetops! Here is a merged version of what I wrote in both emails:

Thank you for the video, Marie (Not her real name). I have been a supporter of SSPX for years now and whenever I am well enough to travel, we make the grueling (for us) trip to (-SSPX Chapel_).

I have heard that Father _X_  has said we may not attend Mass there and also heard that the Bishop does not approve. So have tried to keep silent, but can do so no longer.

The neo-modernists of the Bergoglio/Kasper/Danneels faction are using homosexuals and divorcees not for the good of their souls, not for true mercy for these poor people, but solely to attack Our Lord in His Sacrament of Love. What a horrible hoax to play on poor sinners! Not to show them the way to true repentance and the fulness of grace and everlasting happiness in Heaven, but to further damn them to hell by compounding their mortal sins.

The pawns in all this are the sinners, who are being mislead by the very shepherds who should help them.
What kind of “field hospital of the faith” is P. Francis running? It deliberately infects poor sinners, already suffering mortal wounds, with more fatal disease, while denying them the simple cure!

It seems hypocritical for some who call themselves traditional Catholics to keep acting as though the SSPX is evil. I know them and they are genuinely the Remnant of the Faith that will, by their constant reparations and rosaries bring Our Immaculate Mother’s victorious return and restore the Faith.

At SSPX Chapel, there are prayers before every Mass for Pope Francis, they are respectful and I have personally been excoriated by Father _V_ for being uncharitable about the Pope. I am guilty as charged! Father V  urges us to offer penance and prayers for the pope and the hierarchy, as Our Lady of Fatima requested.

I love the Church and that is why I cannot continue to give tacit approval of what I see happening in this papacy. It is difficult to grasp how in the name of mercy, those living in a persistent state of mortal sin are being welcomed into receiving the Blessed Sacrament, yet I am to be cast out, for simply attending a Society Mass? Amazing.

In this farcical Synod, they are discussing institutionalizing Eucharistic sacrilege. To attempt to excommunicate me for attending a reverent Mass when all this sacrilege and desecration of the Blessed Sacrament is being rammed through, is beyond ludicrous. But we will see how it plays out. Meanwhile, we will go on down to (SSPX Chapel) next Sunday. There, we have Rosary before Mass with prayers for the Pope, a reverent Missa Cantata, followed by an hour of Eucharistic adoration with prayers for the Pope and the Synod. The congregation did their own Eucharistic Rosary procession last Sunday for the Synod. These people are praying and offering penances for the Church in this time of trial, so by all means, they should be excommunicated!

By the way, apropos Father Rosica at the Synod Press briefing, where he mentioned polygamy: If they open up to polygamy in Africa, that will destroy the beautiful, faithful African Church, the most vital and fervent ground of the Faith today, which is giving us saints and martyrs for the glory of God and His Church. It is a terrible blow, all in the name of Kasper’s damnable “mercy”. I won’t be a part of it.

Before long, I will be probably unable to travel to (SSPX Chapel)  for Mass. When that happens, Father will come here to offer Mass. If you know of anyone interested in attending, feel free to give them my contact information.

I will hush now. Thank you,

evensong

Well, it is now 1 a.m. and time for Matins, yet am still at the computer getting ready to post this. As I think back on the events of the day, I am having second thoughts. Some of our family still go there to the TLM at St. Nowhere’s and they will have to face the disapproval of Father X and the TLM community. Perhaps it was thoughtless of me. Then I wax indignant again. With all the problems facing faithful Catholics in this dysfunctional Church, why does it fall to me to be the stereotypical bad guy?

Wish I could recall that quote from Orwell, you know, the one about how subversive it is to tell the truth in a sick society? But it is late and I am old, and very tired, and my Church is in ruins.

Oh God come to my assistance, O Lord, make haste to help me.

 

[UPDATE, February 5, 2016: My husband and I are still forbidden to receive Holy Communion at the Diocesan Traditional Latin Mass. Father X has wholeheartedly embraced the new “Mercy Agenda” of Pope Francis. Those who still attend the TLM there never need fear they will hear the intolerant words of Jesus against adultery, for all that is cast aside in favor of the serene theology of Cardinal Kasper and the tender mercies of Pope Francis.]

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!”

Queen of the most Holy Rosary, establish the reign of thine Immaculate Heart in my heart, in the Church, and in the world!

St. Joseph, protector of the Church, protect our priests!

Remember, pray the Rosary and confound Satan!

The Mystery of La Salette

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

With those words, on September 19,  1846, 172 years ago today, Our Lady of La Salette concluded her message to the little cowherds, Melanie Calvat and Maximin Giraud. What an intriguing statement this is as we look back over the many decades since Our Lady of La Salette left us.  She does not ask the children to pass her message along, she simply states that they will.

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

Why this resistance? According to Melanie,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now, this age of apostasy, which began with the rebellious priest Martin Luther, is drawing to a climax through the diabolical forces occupying the Vatican. In fact, the present occupant is preparing to honor Martin Luther next month. And so we see the  dog return to his vomit. What will Heaven’s response be? After 500 years of warnings?

MEMORARE TO OUR LADY OF LA SALETTE

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

 

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

 

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

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

 Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come.
 St. Joseph, terror of demons, protect our families, protect our priests.
 St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

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

A Life or Death Struggle

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOTES:

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

Roman Catholic Faithful, back in the fray!

GREAT NEWS!

The Roman Catholic Faithful has reformed and after their hiatus, appear to be fitter than ever and I am thrilled to see them rejoin the work. It is clear that now is the perfect time for them to apply their valuable experience to this herculean task. Please bookmark their website, go there often and support them as much as you possibly can. I will put a link in the sidebar as soon as possible. This is such encouraging news!

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Media Contact: media@rcf.org

(PETERSBURG, IL. September 8, 2018) — In July of 2009, the Board Members of Roman Catholic Faithful, Inc. elected to suspend operations after twelve years of fighting corruption in the Catholic Church. Said Stephen Brady, founder and president of RCF, “Our organization began after we learned that the bishop of Springfield, Illinois, the late Daniel Ryan, was paying young male prostitutes for sex. Soon calls for our assistance came from around the U.S. We sponsored a number of symposia in cities across the country, and we picketed the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) on at least two occasions.

“We were privileged to receive the sage advice of holy priests such as Fr. John Hardon, Fr. Charles Fiore, Fr. Peter Mascari, and the legendary Fr. Malachi Martin,” Mr. Brady explained. “Yet, we closed our doors after we became convinced that clerical corruption could not be fought simply on a piecemeal basis on a local level; rather, it became clear that the greater part of the post-conciliar Church had lost the Faith. We urged our supporters to attend the Traditional Mass whenever possible, to recite the daily Rosary, to live the life of grace and to pray very hard for the reform of the Church.” (RCF’s “goodbye letter” can be found at http://rcf.org/RCFgoodbye.pdf)

However, Mr. Brady continued, “The events that have unfolded during the last several months, most particularly the report of the grand jury that investigated the sexual molestation of children in Pennsylvania, have led us to believe that we must once more jump into the fray. It has become impossible for us to stand idle after reading the grand jury report (available at http://apps.washingtonpost.com/g/page/local/report-on-pennsylvania-church-sex-abuse/2319/). The various committees and commissions proposed by several bishops can be counted on to be a complete waste of time and money. This amounts to the wolves investigating the wolves.”

In the past, RCF not only addressed immorality among the clergy, but also fought diocesan heterodox teaching and liturgical abuses. These things, although important to its members, will no longer be included in RCF’s active mission.

Said Mr. Brady, “We have one mission now – to expose the network of sexual immorality among the Catholic clergy in the United States, and most importantly to expose the bishops and cardinals who have enabled their crimes. If we work on this project for ten years, and spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars, and save only one child from being molested, we will have considered our work a success. Frankly, though, we anticipate doing much better.”

In closing, Mr. Brady stated, “And now a word to the bishops and cardinals in the United States:
“We are going to put the dioceses and episcopal sees of each of you under a microscope. We are willing to crawl into the darkest dens of depravity where children are molested and expose this entire network and enterprise to the public. To those of you bishops and cardinals willing to assist us and cooperate, we thank you in advance. For those of you who will oppose our crusade, let me make this clear – we are going to name names and take whatever remedial action we find necessary, including picketing, urging boycotts of financial contributions by parishioners and….well, let’s just say we have a few other ideas as well.”

Mr. Brady concluded, “For assistance in this fight the Roman Catholic Faithful ask for the help of Almighty God and the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

God made you like this

 

Pope Francis explains what is happening and why.

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

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

“God made you like this”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I pray for you always, thank you for reading.
