The Prayer of Anna Maria Taigi

 

Today, we offer a prayer which comes from Edward Healy Thompson, “The Venerable Anna Maria Taigi”, Burns, Oates & Co., 1874. I offer it for those readers who have requested good prayers and devotions to help combat the toxins of this apostate age.

Prayer of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Blessed Anna Maria Taigi, pray for us!

Prostrate at thy holy feet, great Queen of Heaven, I venerate thee with profoundest reverence, and acknowledge thee as the Daughter of God the Father, the Mother of the Divine Word, and the Spouse of the Holy Ghost. Thou art the treasurer and the distributor of Their mercies. It is because of thy most pure heart, so full of charity, sweetness, and tenderness for sinners, that I call thee mother of divine compassion. Wherefore I present myself to thee with great confidence, my most loving mother; I am in affliction and filled with anguish, and I pray thee to make me taste the truth of thy love by granting me the grace I ask of thee, if it be conformable to the Divine Will and good for my soul. I entreat thee to turn thy most pure eyes upon me and all belonging to me, especially those who have recommended themselves to my prayers.

Behold the terrible war which the devil, the world, and the flesh wage against our souls, and how many of these souls perish. Remember, O most tender mother that we are all thy children, bought by the Precious Blood of thine only Son. Deign most ardently to pray the Blessed Trinity to grant me the grace always to vanquish the devil, the world, and all my bad passions, that grace by which the just are sanctified yet more, sinners reclaimed, heresies destroyed, infidels enlightened, Jews converted.

Ask, most loving mother, this grace through the infinite goodness of the Most High God, by the merits of thy Most Holy Son, by the milk with which thou didst nourish Him, by the devotedness with which thou didst serve Him, by the love wherewith thou didst love Him, by the tears which thou didst shed, by the sorrow thou didst experience in His most Sacred Passion. Obtain for me this great gift, that the whole world may form one only people and one only Church, which may render glory, honor, and thanksgiving to the Blessed Trinity and to thee who art the mediatrix.

May this grace be accorded to me by the power of the Father, the wisdom of the Son, and the virtue of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Mother, behold the extreme peril of thy children. Mother, who canst do all things, have pity on us. Virgo potens, ora pro nobis.

Three Ave Marias.

Eternal Father, increase ever more in the hearts of the faithful devotion to Mary, Thy Daughter.
Eternal Son, increase ever more in the hearts of the faithful devotion to Mary, Thy Mother.
Eternal Spirit, increase ever more in the hearts of the faithful devotion to Mary, Thy Spouse.
Gloria Patri.

Thank you for your prayers, my latest tests are much improved and I am filled with renewed hope!

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

Slash and Burn, Reboot 2020

Slash and burn, reboot
Fresh, new growth springs from the ashes.

Slash and burn agriculture is the process of cutting down the vegetation in a particular plot of land, setting fire to the remaining foliage, and using the ashes to provide nutrients to the soil for the use of planting food crops.

Recently, a kind and gentle reader remarked, “it is not surprising that we see the ground being prepared, tilled so to speak, in order to receive the seed of the consecration.”

I’ve taken some time to consider this reader’s thoughtful comment and concluded that the ground will be prepared by a slightly different method.

In the slash and burn method, as detailed above, what is hindering the restoration of the faith and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the glut of arrogant, disobedient and indifferent catholics who now occupy the Church, as laity and above all, as consecrated leaders, who conspire against her and serve the lord of this world.  By His usual effective methods, I believe that God will clear away the debris, and in these ashes, by the humility and obedience of the survivors, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Church will rise again. A chastened Pope will consecrate Russia, and a chastened Russia will welcome this.

Blasphemy for Christmas 2019

 

Today, we offer a new post on what has become a yearly tradition for Pope Francis: His Blasphemy against the most Blessed Mother of God.

 “And he took me away in spirit into the desert. And I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” (Apocalypse, 17,3)

It is not really surprising that Pope Bergoglio has once again blasphemed Our Lady, as he did last year, (see Blasphemy for Christmas and Pope Francis Tells Us About Mary, A Normal Girl)

Actually, it was on this day one year ago, that the Jesuit pope flippantly dismissed the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as we discussed in last year’s “Blasphemy for Christmas” .Unfortunately, the Christmas season just seems to bring out the blasphemy in Pope Bergoglio. This year, as widely reported, the Pope, speaking on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, dismissed as “foolishness” Our Lady’s traditional title of Co-Redemptrix. Another offensive portion of the Pope’s speech on December 12 was that, in discussing her titles, he omitted her most significant and exalted title, that of Mother of God. But for today, I would like to replace all the hateful words and actions coming from him with something good and true and beautiful. Father Garrigou-Lagrange wrote an essay on Mary as Co-Redemptrix and I offer you some brief quotes. If we are to survive this venomous onslaught against Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Mother, we must work to wash away the incoming flood of putrescence and corruption with the pure and grace-filled thoughts and sentiments of the true faith and keep ourselves strengthened and nourished by the true sacraments.

SSPX Response to the Pan-Amazon Synod

This just in:

Communiqué of the Superior general of the Society about the Synod on the Amazon

Menzingen, October 28, 2019

On the feast of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles

Dear Members of the Society,

The recent Synod on the Amazon was witness to terrible scenes where the abomination of idolatrous rites was played out within the sanctuary of God in new and unthinkable ways. And then, the final document of this tumultuous assembly attacked the holiness of the Catholic priesthood, pushing for both the abolition of ecclesiastical celibacy and the establishment of a female deaconate. Truly, the seeds of apostasy which our venerable Founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, had identified from the earliest days as being at work in the Council, continue to yield their putrid fruits with renewed effectiveness.

In the name of inculturation, pagan elements are increasingly integrated into divine worship and we can see, once again, how the liturgy that followed of the Second Vatican Council is perfectly suited to this.

In response to these events, we call on all members of the Society, including Third Order members, to observe a day of prayer and reparation, because we cannot remain indifferent to such attacks on the holiness of Holy Mother the Church. We ask that a fast be observed in all our houses on Saturday, November 9th. We invite all the faithful to the same and we also encourage children to offer prayers and sacrifices.

On Sunday, November 10th, 2019, each priest of the Society will celebrate a Mass of reparation, and in each chapel, the Litanies of the Saints, taken from the liturgy of the Rogations, will be sung or recited to ask God to protect His Church and to spare it from the punishments that such acts cannot fail to draw down upon it. We urge all priest friends, as well as all Catholics who love the Church, to do the same.

Such is due to the honour of the Holy Roman Catholic Church founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ, which is neither idolatrous nor pantheistic.

Don Davide Pagliarani

Superior General

Many thanks to our reader Andrew for alerting us of this! Soon, we shall begin posting on helpful penitential practices to prepare for Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 9 & 10 days of reparation.

In the meantime, you may find our recent post, “Three Days of Reparation” helpful as it contains the Litany for Penitents and other prayers.

Dear readers, please begin now – if you have not already begun – to make reparation. this Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the perfect times – First Friday reparation, First Saturday reparation capped off by Holy Mass on Sunday in hope and thanksgiving anticipating the graces sure to come, for Christ will save His Church!

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!
†  St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
†  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Christ the King and the Synod of Darkness

Today, the closing day of the Synod of Darkness, is also the Feast of Christ the King in the Traditional (true) observance. Now this Synod is finally over and we need to get back to the faith. This Synod’s carefully orchestrated attacks, coming daily throughout this month of Our Lady’s Rosary has certainly been brutal! Most Precious Blood of Jesus, save us! The following post is my best effort to help us get back on track.

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.’

'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.'
‘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)

Notice that Pilate, after asking Jesus, “What is truth?” walked away without attending to His answer. So typical of the worldly leaders! Jesus tells Pilate 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. Even more, Pilate shrugged off the very idea of truth!

Pilate’s indifference to the truth has so permeated the leadership of the Church that it was the underlying theme at the Pan-Amazon Synod, which we referred to as the Synod of Darkness for this very reason. Satanic darkness is confusion and deceit, malice and blasphemy institutionalized.

My Kingdom Is Not of This World

‘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.’ (John 18, 36)

Our Lord said these words in front of a jeering mob crying for His crucifixion and death. He was 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.

But there is no enmity between this apostate pope and the world. For he serves the Lord of the World and does his bidding. And there is none to stop him save the Truth Himself, Christ our King and the Woman He chose before all time to be His Mother, She to whom the Victory has been given, the Immaculata.

If we apply the above passage to the current crisis, which is the Passion of the Bride of Christ, we understand correctly the only way out of this dilemma. At the present time, we are in danger of being led to accept false solutions. There are two forces contending to gain the upper hand in this crisis and both of them are misleading.  The worldly forces represent the usual marxist dialectic: on one side, the globalist forces of the nations united with the neo-pagan Bergoglian Church, and on the other, its supposed foe, the forces which have arisen within the Church to combat it. But this is deceptive, for both these sides ignore the true Way, the Truth, the Life that is Christ Jesus, True Head of the Church.

The Third – and True – Way

And that, dear readers is the True Way, the Way that can only be followed by the children of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. For you must understand, this current diabolical darkness and confusion is the direct result of the refusal of the leaders of the Church to obey the commands, first of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and then, of the Immaculate Heart of Christ’s own Mother. Anyone who aspires to lead the faithful to restore the Church, and is not an Apostle of her Immaculate Heart is misleading you.

As we have discussed before, marxist dialectic follows the dictum of Lenin that the best way to defeat the enemy is to be the enemy. That is, to control both sides, as in the false dichotomy of Republican vs. Democrat, liberal vs. conservative, modernist vs. “conservative” Catholics. Today, traditional Catholics have largely been managed downwards into either sedevacantists, who have made themselves irrelevant, or conservatives. Thus, very few traditional Catholics remain faithful to the true teachings of the Church regarding the spiritual nature of this great battle. This is the point where most you are parting ways with me. For the few remaining:

This group of leaders purporting to defend the Church consists of both clerical and laity, all united with the determination to elect a pope and gain control of the Church, ostensibly to restore it to order and drive out the infestation. So far, their efforts have been to issue best-selling books, statements and engage in various efforts to draw support for their leadership, all without actually ever obeying the requests of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima. For more on this see Follow the Logic if you can“, “Follow the Logic Part II”, and “Dispelling Confusion?” and also, By all means, let us tweet.

They want to “restore” the Church, but they will not obey Our Lady of the Rosary!

Recently, I threw up my hands in near despair at this situation, exclaiming in one post, “Just read Jeremias!” In that book of Sacred Scripture, Jeremias was by turns, ignored, despised and castigated, but never actually heard. The Chosen People simply went right on, determined to do things their way. The consequences were devastating, and their eventual repentance never came until after a severe chastisement.  As then, so today.

Traditional Catholics will have no true leader until they repent, and their change of heart draws down God’s mercy. The victory will be Our Lady’s, and she will not reign in the Church through any but an Apostle of her Immaculate Heart. So you who read this with disdain, and choose to follow leaders after your own heart, will be led astray, putting your own souls at risk.

The Immaculate Mother of God has given us the keys to Victory – devotion to her sinless heart, the surest path to our Savior, and her Rosary, which is one long and powerful chain to bind Satan and free us from his power over us. Any true leader will work to establish First Saturdays of Reparation, and the Rosary both in devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Only thus can the reign of Jesus Christ King be re-established in the Church, and through the restored Church, throughout the world. 

If only there were some way for Catholics to grasp the importance of this! But there is no one to lead them! If only they would wake up and heed her voice, we have been assured that our prayers been given such efficacy that all this disgusting sacrilege, blasphemy, heresy would be eradicated in the blink of an eye. Despite the rejection I receive daily, Our Lady does not deceive us and she will answer our prayers if we truly consecrate ourselves to Christ through her Immaculate Heart.

Some have told me that I spend too much time chiding indifference; that an encouraging word would be welcome. I understand, but my job is to warn, not to reassure. When you see what is in store, you will understand. But it will be late.

As reassurance, I encourage you to remember that our prayers are never more efficacious than when they are  forced through an act of the will from a heart burdened with the sorrows and disappointments of these bleak times; yes, especially when we least feel inclined to pray! Our Lord told Sister Josefa Menendez that that was when her prayers were most effective in saving poor sinners! (The Way of Divine Love, TAN Publishing).

The Synod closes today, on the traditional, i.e.,true Feast of Christ the King. In this Synod, we at last have reached the fulfillment of Vatican II, with the Pope actually destroying the papacy by his “decentralization” and destroying the sacred priesthood as well.   We face this latest insult to Our Lord with the knowledge that we are called with Him to humility and obedience, not to the Lord of the world, but to the true head of the Church, our thorn-crowned King.

We close with a prayer from Sister Carmela of the Holy Spirit, O.C.D.

Prayer to Jesus Christ the King

O Divine King, most amiable Jesus, my Redeemer, my Savior, my Spouse, my Master and my Model, I renew today the total consecration of my being to You, begging You to take absolute dominion over me. Be my Sovereign, my Ruler, my Guide. Direct and govern me entirely, so that everything may turn to Your greater glory. Be King of my memory, my intellect, my will, my emotions. I wish all to be completely subject to You and I invite You to reign in me.

Yours is a kingdom of truth, of love, of justice and of peace.

Grant that Your reign of Truth may be established in my mind, destroying all error, deceit and illusion. Enlighten me by Your divine wisdom.

Grant that Your reign of Love may be completely established in my will, to move it, draw it, and direct it always, so that I may no longer be moved by self-love or by creatures but by Your Holy Spirit alone. Make this weak, mean, rebellious will of mine strong, generous, constant. Make it grow stronger by the persevering exercise of virtue and by the gifts of Your Holy Spirit.

Grant that Your reign of Justice may be established in all my actions, so that all that I do may be a work of holiness accomplished with purity of intention and with the greatest fidelity in order to please You and accomplish Your holy will.

Grant that Your reign of Peace may be established not only in my soul, but also in my sensibility, so that, in harmony with the superior part of my soul it may give You glory and neither retard me nor be an obstacle to union with You. Amen.

 

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.

The gods of the gentiles . . .

 

Rorate Caeli has published an astute op-ed, Was a demon enthroned at the Synod?”  Well worth reading!

The gods of the gentiles

 

Our long time readers recognised the actions of adoring the devil in the guise of “pachamama” immediately and have been quietly offering reparation for this great evil. This evil was not unexpected – it must be that satan openly flaunts his power in the Vatican – he is impatient to be manifest after so long a time hidden in plain view, but ignored by the willfully blind.

This naked pregnant woman – what does she represent? the idol’s immodest appearance is the reverse of the modesty of Our Lady and the appearance of fertility is the satanic reverse of true fertility for the “god” she serves demands, in place of the Holy Sacrifice of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the blood sacrifice of millions of unborn innocents.  And the wretched men behind this synod,  promote the UN’s anti-life “climate agenda, including abortion and contraception.

Dear readers, we have written on this so many times! On October 13, 1917, Our Lady of the Rosary begged us that we “must not offend Our Lord any more for He is already too much offended.” (link) And yet, 102 years later, here we are!

Indeed, Lucifer himself has been enthroned in the Vatican for many years as Father Malachi Martin asserted and of which we have written often. See here. And we have chronicled the many proofs that this papacy serves the ancient enemy of Christ in many articles. That this Bergoglian Reformation serves satan is detected by any Catholic with an intact sense of faith, i.e., any Catholic in a state of grace. So many of you shared with me your sense of dread and doom when Bergoglio walked onto that loggia with Danneels at his side. And you, good readers are the ones who have been quietly living the message of Fatima each day, each night in prayerful recollection, offering up your penances, your daily sacrifices, prayers and alms in reparation and for the conversion of sinners.

I trust that the small amount of writing I’m able to do will be sufficient right now. For you do not need my words – or anyone else’s! – to urge you to continue, and even redouble your efforts. One note only:

We are in the time in which the Sacrifice is to be suppressed and the Ancient Enemy is enthroned in the Sanctuary, as we see in the Vatican’s unholy ceremonies. Note this, the Enemy requires human souls in his own satanic worship. Thus we have Pope Francis eagerly turning over millions of Chinese faithful to certain martyrdom, and encouraging massive immigration into once Christian countries which will inevitably bring great harvest of souls for satan. This bloodshed of both souls for the devil and martyrs for the Faith is necessary and is a great sign for these times.

It may be we shall come to the point where we shall all be separated and set at odds with one another. Unable to have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we will have our rosaries, in our hearts at least. It may be that a false pope, seeming better, but actually even worse than the present occupant, will be given to afflict us still more. If that happens, it will only be because of the obstinate refusal of the “faithful”. We cannot please Our Lord in any way whatsoever unless we obey the Immaculata. To her alone has the victory been given. She is the true Mother of the Church.

Do not be perturbed by these things! The Chastisement continues until reparation is made, one way or the other.

“Who God possesses in nothing is wanting. Alone God suffices.”

Despite everything to the contrary, the loving, generous obedience of the children of her Immaculate Heart will bring to Our Lady, Queen of the Holy Rosary, Queen of the Church, her long-awaited victory.

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!

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!

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.

Preparing for the Synod of Darkness, Part I

 

As September draws to a close and we attempt to prepare for the next attack on the faith from the current occupant of the Vatican, it seems appropriate to review some of the prophecies regarding this particular time. Today’s is the first of what I hope will be three articles, with parts 2 and 3 coming 9/25 and 9/27, God willing. I rely heavily on Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité.

 

From The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III

It is Jesus Himself Who first predicted this terrible crisis of the Faith which will open the “last times”. Along with famines and earthquakes, wars and persecutions, Our Lord clearly predicts that there will also be grave deficiencies even within the Church:

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and will put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will fall away, and will betray one another, and will hate one another. And many false prophets will arise, and will lead many astray. And because iniquity will abound, the charity of the many will grow cold. But whoever perseveres to the end, he shall be saved.” (Mt. 24: 9-13)

“… For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have foretold it to you.” (Mt. 24: 24)

Finally, we are familiar with these stupefying words of Jesus:

“Yet when the Son of man comes, will He find, do you think, faith on the earth?” (Lk. 18: 8)

This question of Our Lord, explained by His other prophecies on the last times – which are utterly definite and unconditional – takes on an even more dramatic resonance. The apostasy will come, Jesus evokes its most extreme extension, and He leaves us in uncertainty.

THE APOSTOLIC PREACHING

The Apostles understood this tragic teaching very well. There are countless texts where they evoke this menacing apostasy. They multiply warnings against its artisans, the false prophets and false doctors of all sorts, who come from the Church’s very bosom and are already at work against Her, striving furiously to destroy the Faith of the faithful. But “in the last days”, they make it clear, the false prophets will multiply most dangerously. We must reread chapters II and III of Saint Peter’s Second Epistle:

“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)

“This first you must know, that in the last days there will come deceitful scoffers, men walking according to their own lusts, saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”… But beloved, do not be ignorant of this one thing, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord does not delay in His promises, but for your sake is long-suffering, not wishing that any should perish but that all should turn to repentance.” (2 Pet. 3: 3-9)

We must reread Saint Jude, taking up the same theme:

Well now, my children . . .

 

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

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

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

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

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

Why this resistance? According to Melanie,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MEMORARE TO OUR LADY OF LA SALETTE

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

~ 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!
