No longer in Rome

Today is  Friday, July 21, 2017. It is nearly 1 am and as I prepare to get a bit of sleep before the morning comes, I wonder what surprises the Bergoglian Vatican will bring with  this new day.  We live now with this dread of what the beast may do next to the Bride of Christ!  It recalls to my mind the following post from a couple of years ago.. When I first read St. John Bosco’s  prophecy, it impressed me with its coherence with the other prophecies for these times, especially those of the Apocalypse.  If you’ve already read this article, I apologise for repeating, but hope it might benefit our new readers who are just beginning to explore the site.

For so long now, the faith has suffered assault after assault, and still the awful humiliation and degradation of the Church continues unabated.  And yet we know that this is the providence of our Dear Lord, who endures these sufferings to allow the extra time for penance, and for the conversion of sinners.  Think a moment, aren’t you much more aware of Our Lady’s message than you were four years ago? Don’t you know of people who have begun to awaken to the terrible crisis? We must remember that Our Lord is suffering far, far more than we are, and He is  doing it, as He always does, for the salvation of souls. Let us not forsake Him now when He needs us so much, but renew our penances, prayers, fasts and alms so that many souls may be saved in the midst of this satanic onslaught.

“And they realized they were no longer in Rome …”

St. John Bosco’s prophecy of the two pillars is fairly well known, but he also made another prophecy, which is related in the book by Rev. Gerald Culleton, “The Prophets and Our Times:

“And to you, Rome, what will happen? Ungrateful Rome! Effeminate Rome! proud Rome!

“Rome! To you I will come four times! The first time, I shall strike your lands and the inhabitants thereof. The second time, I shall bring the massacre and the slaughter even to your very walls. And will you not yet open your eyes I shall come a third time and I shall beat down to the ground your defenses and the defenders and at the command of the Father, the reign of terror, of dreadful fear and of desolation shall enter into your city.

“But My wise men have now fled and My law is even now trampled underfoot. Therefore I will make a fourth visit. Woe to you if My law shall still be considered as empty words. There will be deceit and falsehood among both the learned and the ignorant. Your blood and that of your children will wash away your stains upon God’s Law. War, pestilence and famine are the rods to scourge men’s pride and wickedness. O wealthy men, where is your glory now, your estates, your palaces? They are rubble on the highways and byways. …

"And they realized they were no longer in Rome..."
“And they realized they were no longer in Rome…”

“It was a dark night. Men could no longer tell which way to take in order to return to their homes. Of a sudden there appeared in the heavens a very bright light that illuminated the steps of the travelers as though it were mid-day. At that moment there was seen a host of men and women, of young and old, of nuns, monks and priests with the Holy Father at the head. They were going out from the Vatican and were arranging themselves in line for a procession. “Then there came a furious storm which clouded that light somewhat and made it appear that light and darkness were engaged in battle. In the meantime, they arrived at a little square covered with dead and wounded, some of whom cried aloud and asked for help.

“Very many were dropping out of the line of procession. After having walked for a time that would correspond to two hundred risings of the sun (200 days) they all realized that they were no longer in Rome. Struck with fear they all ran to the Holy Father to defend him personally and to attend his wants. Instantly two angels were seen carrying a banner, going they presented it to the Holy Father and said: ‘Receive the banner of He Who fights and scatters the strongest armies of the world. Your enemies are dispersed. Your children with tears and sighs beg you to return.’ “Looking at the banner one could see written on one side, ‘Queen conceived without sin,’ and on the other side, ‘Help of Christians.’

“The Holy Father joyfully took the banner, but looking closely at the small number of those who remained with him, he became very sad. “The two angels added: ‘Go quickly to console your children. Write your brothers dispersed throughout the world that there must be a reform in the morals of men. That cannot be obtained except by distributing to the people the bread of the Divine Word. Catechize the children. Preach the detaching of the heart from the things that are of the earth. The time has come,’ concluded the two angels, ‘when the poor shall evangelize the people. Vocations will come from among those working with the spade, the axe, and the hammer to the end that they fulfill the words of David: ‘God has raised up the poor from the land in order to place them on the thrones of the princes of His people.

The Pope of Islamic Peace

 

The Pope of Islamic peace

Strange as it may seem, in spite of all the violence and destruction wrought by the relentless islamicization of the West and even of recent violent attacks, we see the Bishop of Rome continuing to defy logic. Note the Vatican’s logo for the Pope’s latest adventure  into  Egypt.

And so we’ll have yet another photo-op assuring persecuted Christians that despite what they are experiencing, islam is really a religion of peace. Sandro Magister’s column yesterday (see here)  is well worth reading.  Citing data from the Pew Research Center, Magister concludes that the population of Egypt is, in fact thoroughly radicalized. Some figures from his article are relevant to this latest papal trek into fantasyland:

 

The Peace of Allah

♦  75 percent of the Egyptian population maintains that sharia – meaning the system of law derived from the Quran and the Sunnah – is the revealed word of God.
♦  74 percent want sharia to be the law of the state.
♦  74 percent want sharia to be applied not only to Muslims, but also to non-Muslims.
♦  95 want religious judges to decide in disputes over family and property.
♦  70 percent are in favor of corporal punishment for crimes like theft.
♦  81 percent are in favor of stoning for those who commit adultery.
♦  86 percent are in favor of the death penalty for those who leave Islam.
(English translation by Matthew Sherry, Ballwin, Missouri, U.S.A.)

To Magister’s data, we add one citation of our own, which was just offered by a reader: From the secular site The Religion of Peace.com, the following figures of Islamic attacks on Christians in Egypt in just this month, April:  48 killed, 130 injured for the love of Allah.

It is our position that islam is part and parcel of the “errors of Russia” and that it is supported by the very person, Vladimir Putin, whom useful idiots in the west trumpet as a “Christian leader”. We will post more soon on the Putin-islam connection but for now…

We re-post some excerpts from our article from 2015, Islam and the Errors of Russia:

†  †  †

As the muslim invasion of Europe and America continues towards the islamification of the West, let’s look at the reality of islam in the light of the Fatima prophecy of the Errors of Russia.

The Goal of Islam: Global Domination via Jihad
The Goal of Islam: Global Domination via Jihad

A question was asked of me recently, “Where does islam fit in with the ‘errors of Russia’ “? If, by the errors of Russia, we understand a totalitarian, soul-destroying regime, then, islam fits the bill quite nicely. In fact, Islam and Marxism (dialectical materialism) have much in common.

“Bolshevism combines the characteristics of the French Revolution with those of the rise of Islam… Those who accept Bolshevism become impervious to scientific evidence, and commit intellectual suicide. Even if all the doctrines of Bolshevism were true, this would still be the case, since no unbiased examination of them is tolerated…Among religions, Bolshevism is to be reckoned with Mohammedanism [Islam] rather than with Christianity and Buddhism. Christianity and Buddhism are primarily personal religions, with mystical doctrines and a love of contemplation. Mohammedanism and Bolshevism are practical, social, unspiritual, concerned to win the empire of this world.” [Jules Monnerot in “Sociology and Psychology of Communism” quoted by Dr. Andrew Bostom]

In his essay, Dr. Bostom quotes Monnerot to the effect that both Communism and Islam share two major characteristics, conversion and subversion. Both demand total submission and both work tirelessly, undeterred by any adversity, in order to subvert whatever culture impedes the progress of their anti-Christian goal.

The Sixth Angel

“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 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 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.

Note:   Although Fr. H.B. Kramer believed the Great Altar to refer to the religious orders, the passage of time has proved that this is not the case. The once-great orders have succumbed to the withering “Springtime” of Vatican II.  Therefore,  Fr. Berry’s understanding that the Great Altar refers to Our Savior and His Sacrifice of the Mass is the correct interpretation. Both Kramer and Berry believed the Fallen Star to have been Martin Luther; but now we see that Bergoglio’s Reformation within the Church far surpasses Luther’s, which initially occurred without the institutional Church.

Indeed, the Bergoglian Reformation actually began with the disobedient Popes such as John XXIII, Paul VI and by now has reached its apotheosis in  Pope  Francis who has superseded by far the heresies spawned by Luther, and brought heresy and apostasy into the very heights of the Church.

And so, at the behest of the Voice from the Great Altar, the four angels from beneath the Euphrates are loosed upon mankind. As we have remarked before, four is a number of universality, and indicates how extensive this woe will be. Father Sylvester Berry believes these four angels may be the same four angels of Chapter 7, “to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea” and who were commanded not to hurt the earth, the sea or the trees until the servants of God were signed on their foreheads. (Apoc. 7, 2-3). I will expand on this later, if able.

Fr. Berry remarks that the increasing severity of chastisements corresponds with the increase of iniquity. These accelerating woes portend the nearness of the coming of the Antichrist. This woe is announced for a very definite time, i.e., “an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year”, thus emphasising that the precise day and hour is determined by God alone. And the task? “For to kill the third part of men.”

False ecumenism and jihad

After the brutal islamic ritual murder of Father Jacques Hamel in France recently, the Catholic world waited in vain for any sign of protest from Pope Francis. This coldly calculated silence from the Bergoglian Vatican will only serve to welcome more such attacks on our priests and faithful. In order to understand what has brought us to this point, where islamists can murder our priests with impunity while our Most Humble and Merciful Pontiff® castigates Catholics, we offer a post from June, 2014 wherein John Vennari of Catholic Family News explains this phenomenon.

Francis and four points of Apostate Action
Islamic prayers to be held at the Vatican
by John Vennari

False Ecumenism and Jihad

This Sunday, June 8, Pope Francis will allow for the first time in history Islamic prayers from the Quoran to be recited at the Vatican. The service is said to be in the cause of Peace in the Middle East (see report below). Members of Judaism will be part of the interfaith gathering as well. This radical initiative is scandalous on at least four counts:

1) The Prayers of Islam worship a false god; not the true God who is the Blessed Trinity; not the true God Jesus Christ, who said “No man comes to the Father but through Me.” Speaking on the modernist notion that various religions worship the same God, the eminent theologian Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange explained that such a tenet denies the principle of non-contradiction, which is the most fundamental principle of reason. Father Garrigou-Lagrange explains, “It is injurious to say that God would consider with equanimity all religions while one teaches truth and one teachers error, when one promises the good and one promises the evil. To say this would be to affirm that God would be indifferent to good and evil, to what is honest and shameful.”[1]

Who Killed Father Hamel?

This Tuesday past, an elderly priest, Father Jaques Hamel, was the first to usher in the age of islamic triumph that the current Pope has been inviting by his actions and rhetoric since the start of his pontificate. In this, he is perfectly in line with the example of his predecessor John Paul II whom he recently canonized. The elderly priest had his throat slit in ritual islamic fashion, while being forced to kneel before the altar where he was offering Mass. 

They are at war, whether we are, or not.
They are at war, whether we are, or not.

Only the most obtuse would fail to see that islam is at war with the West and especially with the Catholic Church. Ever since Pope John Paul II kissed the Quran, the leaders of the Church have done all in their power to assure muslims that the Church will never even hint at the truth. Even after the brazen murder of an innocent Catholic priest during Mass, Pope Francis refuses to speak the truth (source) and thus fails to protect his flock. 

This latest but most symbolic attack did not come about as an entirely unpredictable event. There have been several attacks, such as the Charlie Hebdo (Jan. 2015) and the Bataclan (Nov. 2015) and the Bastille Day massacre most recently. What has been the French response?

After the Charlie Hebdo attack, the French Ministry of defense launched the Sentinelle Organization. Its mandate: “to protect the French people and provide security in support of the Internal Security Forces at the most sensitive locations in Paris and in the provinces.” Sounds pretty good, right?

On the night of November 13, 2015, six armed members of this elite military group stood at the entrance of the Bataclan during the concert. Yet they took no action, even as the carnage continued. There was certainly much noise from the ongoing gunshots and screams of the victims. Yet these elite forces remained impassive, unresponsive at the entrance. (source and source). 

Why?  Because their rules of engagement did not permit it. These men were trained and armed and they outnumbered the attackers, yet did not engage because their rules did not “allow” them to. … Fascinating, isn’t it?

And now, let’s look at last Tuesday’s ritual murder, that quintessentially islamic event. To slit the throat of a fragile, elderly priest in the midst of offering worship presents a powerful symbol of the strength and determination of their religion doesn’t it? You can easily see the logic in their actions, once you descend to their level.

Our Lady of Fatima and Islam

As soon as I am able, will have new posts, but for now, a repost because this topic is even more appropriate than when it was written a year ago.

Have you ever wondered why the Queen of Heaven chose the rural backwater of Fatima, Portugal to make her appearance in 1917? Does the name Fatima remind you of anything? Now that Islam is daily slaughtering Christians in the name of their false god, it may be wise to look into these things a bit further.

Our Lady of Victory, crush satan's head & lead us to victory! Our Lady of the Rosary, save our families, save the Church!
Our Lady of Victory, crush satan’s head & lead us to victory!
Our Lady of the Rosary, save our families, save the Church!

In 1952, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen published a book, “The World’s First Love, Mary, the Mother of God”. The book was a tour de force of devotion to Our Lady, especially Our Lady of Fatima. The Servant of God devoted the entire 17th Chapter of his book to, “Mary and the Moslems”, for so they were called then. This book is in the public domain as all Catholic spiritual writing should be, and is available for free from www.archive.org. That site offers the book in a variety of formats, including pdf, Kindle and iBook. I offer these excerpts from the 17th Chapter with my comments for your review to facilitate the discussion and awareness of Our Lady of Fatima’s importance in this ongoing chastisement.

“At the present time, the hatred of the Moslem countries against the West is becoming a hatred against Christianity itself. Although the statesmen have not yet taken it into account, there is still grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return and, with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power. Moslem writers say, “When the locust swarms darken vast countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words: *We are God’s host, each of us has ninety-nine eggs, and if we had a hundred, we should lay waste the world with all that is in it.”

Regarding locusts, see Apocalypse Chapter 9, verse 3 and verses 7-11:

“And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. …And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle: and on their heads were, as it were, crowns like gold: and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women; and their teeth were as lions: And they had breastplates as breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was as the noise of chariots and many horses running to battle. And they had tails like to scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had over them a king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans.”

Continuing from Archbishop Sheen,

The Wrath of the Lamb

“And they say to the mountains and the rocks, ‘Fall upon us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.”

Far from being frightening, the above verse is meant to be a consolation. Indeed, the entire Apocalypse is God’s gift of consolation to Christians who are perennially in danger of being swept up in the maelstrom of the spiritual battle to destroy the Church.

"... hide us from the wrath of the Lamb."
“… hide us from the wrath of the Lamb.”

Like the Apocalypse, all Our Lady’s appearances since the Luther began the Age of Apostasy, are consistent; they warn against offending God, and promise His true, unfailing  mercy to His faithful children. Now that we have a truly hellish situation, an apostate pope and a weak and faithless hierarchy unable or unwilling to confront him or otherwise defend the faith, we look to the Apocalypse and to the Messages of Our Immaculate Mother, to seek guidance and consolation.

Today, we will not detail the latest assaults on the faith from Pope Francis but refer you instead to Rorate Caeli’s  report here.

Do you remember Father Amorth’s warning that unless the Pope and Bishops obeyed Our Lady of Fatima and consecrated Russia in October, the Chastisement would begin in earnest? I cannot say it more clearly than this: This is what the spiritual chastisement of the Church is. It is here now. You have the Pope and the Bishops extolling the “virtues” of Martin Luther, the vulgar and despicable heresiarch. For the Pope to laud Luther is to mock Our Lord Himself, to kick Him as He falls beneath this heavy cross.

To those who are paying attention, this is a terrifying time, as we await the denouement that is looming ever larger. These times are both surpassingly sad, and frightening. We know that the arrogant misuse of the teaching authority of the Church will bring, in God’s own time, His justice. In St. John’s Apocalypse, this is referred to as the “Wrath of the Lamb”. And so we continue where we left off with Apocalypse 6, in Father Herman Kramer’s Book of Destiny:

Islam and the Errors of Russia

Well, October came and went and not only was Our Lady of Fatima not obeyed, but the Bergoglio/Danneels wrecking crew continued to push forward their agenda to irrevocably change the Church’s faith and practice in the sacraments and in marriage. This arrogant disobedience is now bearing exactly the fruit that was inevitable. As the muslim invasion of Europe and America continues towards the islamification of the West, let’s look at the reality of islam in the light of the Fatima prophecy of the Errors of Russia.

Quoting from Dr. Bostom again,”Islam has provided the type of society in which the political and the sacred are indissolubly merged. The law of the Koran was religious, political, and civil all in one; and an infidel could be no more than a tributary. In history and in law he appeared as an object, but not as a participating subject; and the Ottoman Empire was interested in the children of infidels only because they could be recruited as janissaries.”

Paris in Prophecy

The events in Paris have been much in the news, both secular and Catholic lately. But these events have their roots in a process that began even before the French Revolution. In fact,  it began in the protestant revolution of Luther and Henry VIII. The diabolical force behind all the revolutions that have swept the world since the beginning of the age of apostasy, that is, the protestant, French, modernist, marxist and now islamic are all kindred spirits, and come from the Lord of this World. And now, in this, the culmination of this disastrous age of apostasy, we watch the long-awaited chastisement unfold before us.

H/T AmericanDigest.org
H/T AmericanDigest.org.

Paris has seen the mercy of Allah … News reports indicate that several coordinated attacks in Paris have killed quite a few people. Anyone who has seen footage of the muslims marching through the streets of so many European cities, proclaiming that all Europe will soon be Muslim, cannot help but wonder what this all portends. We’ve been reading the prophecies, but up until now they always have a faraway tone to them, as though referring to a time we will never see…

Anyway, in our “For what it’s worth file” we offer:

From the Prophecy of La Salette:

“At the first blow of His thundering sword, the mountains and all nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens. Paris will burn and Marseilles will be engulfed. Several cities will be shaken down and swallowed up by earthquakes. People will believe that all is lost. Nothing will be seen but murder, nothing will be heard but the clash of arms and blasphemy.”

St. John Bosco (d. 1888)

“War comes from the south, peace from the north. French laws no longer recognize the Creator, but the Creator will make Himself recognized and will visit her thrice with the rod of His wrath. In the first visit He breaks her pride by conquest, plundering ruined harvest and butchery of men and beasts.

“In the second visit the great Prostitute of Babylon, which makes decent people sigh and call it the Brothel of Europe, will be left without a leader and will be a victim of disorder. “Paris! Paris! Instead of arming yourself in the name of the Lord, you fortify yourself with Houses of Immorality. They will be destroyed by you yourself. Your idol, The Pantheon, will be burnt to ashes in order that this may come true: ‘violence uttereth lies against me.’ Your enemies will reduce you to want, to hunger, to fear, and will make you the abomination of the nations. Ah, woe to you, if you do not recognize the hand that strikes you! I want to punish immorality, the despising of and the contempt for My law, says the Lord. …

“The days fly by, your years will reach the destined number; but the great Queen (Mary) will ever be your help, and as in times past so in the future She will always be the exceeding great fortress of the Church.”

The Darkness Comes

“…The same preternatural impulse moves the homicidal fury of Islam and the suicidal nihilism of the West. The prince of darkness, being unable to make himself God, wants to destroy everything of God as well as everything resembling Christian Civilization. Without this diabolic infestation it is difficult to understand what is happening in the world.” (Dr. de Mattei)

 The Darkness Cometh

The following is a repost from last April. At that time, there were not as many Catholic voices raised in warning about the coming storm of Islamic persecution of Christians. Now, many are noting and speaking up. In this regard, I recommend the inimitable Hilary Jane White, and recently, Ann Barnhardt also had a good post warning what may be expected if we all follow our humble and merciful Pontiff’s advice and welcome these monsters into our communities and homes.

Of the many voices attempting to interpret the Message of Fatima in these times of gathering darkness, perhaps Roberto de Mattei’s is the clearest. From Rorate Caeli:

Roberto de Mattei
Corrispondenza Romana
April 8, 2015

The stars of 148 new martyrs are shining brightly in the firmament of the Church. The young Christian victims of Islam, last Holy Thursday in Kenya, must not be pitied, but envied as they were given the immense grace of martyrdom.

They are martyrs inasmuch as they were Christians killed by Allah’s soldiers. What makes a martyr such, is not the violent death in itself, but the fact that it was inflicted in hatred of the Christian Faith. It is not death itself that makes the martyr, says St. Augustine but that their suffering and death be ordered to the truth. Not all of the victims of a persecution may be called martyrs, [but] only those who meet death at the hands of killers who hate the Faith.

We need to have the courage to name the killers. Silence continues on the events that have been going on for some time now: a systematic, planetary Islamic persecution against Christians. After the episodes in Kenya, Pope Francis read this beautiful prayer: “In Your face – struck [spat upon and disfigured], we see our sin, in You we see our brothers and sisters, persecuted, decapitated and crucified for their faith in You, before our very eyes and often with our complicit silence.”

Antonio Socci, who has often denounced the “complicit silence” of the highest ecclesiastical authorities, writes in Libero: “We are waiting for Pope Francis, from that [Vatican] window, with all of the prestige he enjoys in the media, to awaken the powerful of the earth, mobilize his diplomacy and let everyone hear the cries of grief and pain from the persecuted Christians; may he indicate continuous prayers from the entire Church, may he launch a great humanitarian initiative for these persecuted Christians.”

We need to acknowledge that there is a war of religion in act against Jesus Christ and His Church, fought in the name of the Koran’s Surah which says: “Kill the infidels wherever you find them. This is the recompense for the unbelievers.” (2,191). This war was not waged by Christians, but has been taken up against them. Why don’t the Western governments fight it? The answer is that the West shares the same hate the persecutors have against their own Christian roots.

Western secularism not only … persecutes and ridicules those who defend the natural Christian order of things, but it also practices mass genocide. Monsignor Luc Ravel, Bishop of the French military forces, affirmed:

“We find ourselves having to choose which side to be on; we find ourselves arming against manifest evil without taking a position against the [more] devious kind. The Christian senses that he is caught in a pincer between two ideologies: on the one hand, one that makes a caricature of God which ends up despising man; on the other hand, the manipulation of man which ends up despising God. On the one side, there are the declared and identified adversaries: the terrorists of the bomb, the vindicators of the prophet; on the other side, there are the undeclared but well-known adversaries: the terrorists of thought, promoters of secularism and idolaters of the Republic. In which camp are Christians to be placed? We don’t want to be taken hostage by the Muslims. But we don’t even want to be taken hostage by the conformists either. The Islamic ideology has murdered 17 victims in France. But the ideology of the conformist has 200 thousand victims each year in the wombs of their mothers. Abortion intended as a fundamental “right” is a weapon of mass-destruction.”

The hate the West nurtures for the Church and Christian Civilization is the hate for its own soul and identity. “The West’s self-hate – wrote Benedict XVI – can be considered only as something pathological” : the West is open to and full of comprehension for outside values, “but it no longer loves itself; it now only sees what is shameful and destructive in its history, while it is no longer able to perceive what is great and pure.”

Today the West rejects the values upon which it built its identity and simply chooses the destructive heredity of the Enlightenment, Marxism and Freudism. The gender theory represents the latest intellectual passage of the mind’s disassociation from reality which turns into a pathological hate for human nature itself. Andrea Lubitz by crashing his Airbus into the Alps with 150 passengers, is the expression of this spirit of self-destruction. Suicide is an extreme but coherent expression of the depressed West: a state of mind where the soul sinks into nullity, after losing all reason to live. When absolute relativism is professed one is only self-fulfilled in death.

The slaughter in Garissa is not a “senseless brutality”,  just like the German pilot’s suicide is not an act of pure madness. These destructive or self destructive acts, have their own aberrant logic. The depression of the apostates from Christianity corresponds to the exaltation of the fanatics of Allah: the equilibrium in the world was broken when it turned its back on Christian principles. And the same preternatural impulse moves the homicidal fury of Islam and the suicidal nihilism of the West. The prince of darkness, being unable to make himself God, wants to destroy everything of God as well as everything resembling Christian Civilization. Without this diabolic infestation it is difficult to understand what is happening in the world. And without an Angelic intervention it is impossible to combat a battle which had its first action at the moment of creation, when the Angelic front was divided into two forces perennially in opposition throughout the history of the created universe.

The message of Fatima sees Our Lady preceded and accompanied by Angels. And those who have read the Third Secret will remember the tragic vision of a great cross where at its foot the Pope is also killed : “Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.” As it was at the very beginning of Christianity, the blood of Christians is the seed of rebirth in history and of victory in eternity.

Do not forget, at Fatima, Our Lady of the Rosary said she would return again, that is to say, there is another visit of the the Immaculate Mother of God. This will be her victorious moment when Islam will be converted and the Church will be restored, the darkness dispelled!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, we place our trust in thee, our shelter from the storm.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, return in triumph, restore the Faith!
St. Michael the Archangel defend us in battle!
