The False Prophet and a Synod of Darkness

 

Suppose for a moment that the Lamb with Two Horns, that is, the False Prophet, were to gain control of the Church. And that he himself proclaims, he is, “the guarantor of the obedience and the conformity of the Church to the will of God, to the Gospel of Christ, and to the Tradition of the Church, putting aside every personal whim, despite being by the will of Christ Himself the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful and despite enjoying supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church.” (Catholic Herald, 10/19/2014)

Much of the material in the following article is taken from Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinite’s “The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III”. . Ed. Note: A long time reader, Tadeu de Jesus Giatti,  has located the correct url to download this book. The link is: https://archive.org/details/TheWholeTruthAboutFatimaVol3

What is certain is that outwardly this false prophet will act as one exercising authority in the name of God and in His service, while in reality it will be completely in the service of the Beast.  It will use fire from Heaven, the authority of the papacy, the anathema, to disarm its enemies and conquer Christians. This is because the Lamb, that is, the False Prophet will then condemn what is holy and consecrate what comes from the Evil One. (The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol III)

The looming catastrophe of the Pan-Amazon Synod, which will attempt to destroy the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the celibate priesthood  will quite possibly be enforced with a Bergoglian anathema against all who oppose it; although it will be phrased in the usual ambiguity. We can expect that the Synod will initiate the final stage in the attempted modernist overthrow of the Church, opening up the Church to frank schism and the time of heightened suffering. Worsening the crisis will be revelations of more sexual and financial scandals and the long-expected international sanctions, loss of tax exempt status and in many cases, seizure of assets. It would not be surprising to see the arrogant German apostates stripped of their wholly undeserved “Kirchensteuer” (the massive amount of tax revenue the corrupt heresiarchs rake in).

The most critical event in the forecast above (which is only a speculation, for the sake of discussion) will be  the attempt to abrogate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the attack on the sacred priesthood, both of which are attacks on the very person of Our Lord Jesus Christ. and so we could assume that this will bring us to the culmination of the Chastisement.  Consider if the present occupant of the See of Peter may not be the man to accomplish this. Perhaps it may explain his red-hot hurry to accomplish so many radical changes in such a brutal manner – he is rapidly approaching his expiry date.

THE PROPHETIC WRITINGS, A SOURCE OF PATIENCE, CONSOLATION AND HOPE

“We are here at the most extreme point of the triumph of Impiety, at the hour of the most complete victory of the  “mystery of iniquity”, as Saint Paul says, the  “mystery of the Beast”, as Saint John says (Apocalypse 17: 7). It is a bewildering mystery, this hour of the triumph of  “the Power of Darkness”; yet it belongs to the divine economy of the plan of redemption. For before the triumph of Jesus Christ comes, before His universal Kingdom is instituted, during which “the Gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed in the whole world, as a witness before all peoples” (Mt. 24: 14),  “the apostasy must come”,  “the Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition has to manifest himself”; the  “False Prophet”, the False Lamb must do its work of perversion  “that the Scripture may be fulfilled”, as Jesus said concerning the betrayal by Judas:  “I know whom I have chosen, but that the Scripture may be fulfilled.” (John. 13: 18)

Ed. Note: Frère Michel wrote the foregoing in about 1984-85 and see how they apply now.

And in His priestly prayer, Jesus says:  “I watched over them, and not one of them perished except the son of perdition, in order that the Scripture may be fulfilled.” (John. 17: 12) Saint Peter also, after the Ascension says:  “Brethren, the Scripture must be fulfilled which the Holy Spirit declared before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was the leader of those who arrested Jesus: inasmuch as he had been numbered among us and allotted his share in this ministry…” (Acts 1: 16)

BEHOLD, I HAVE FORETOLD IT TO YOU” (Matt. 24: 25).

“As it happened in Our Lord’s earthly life, just before the victory of His resurrection, so also this “hour of the Power of Darkness” must be accomplished in the life of His pilgrim Church. So the Scriptures warn us.  … This had to come. This worldwide apostasy, which suddenly has become the major phenomenon of our times, no longer bewilders us; we know that it was written.  It is no longer the defeat of Christianity, the proof of its weakness, the crushing argument against its divine truth… On the contrary, the literal fulfillment of the prophecies comes as a strengthening of our faith, it alone can persuade the unbeliever, and it nourishes our hope.

“These times are diabolical;  But we needed the support, the absolute security of the Divine Word to dare to say it to ourselves and declare it openly. Strong in this revelation, we understand that we must hold on and not let up, (We must) remain in “the camp of the saints”, infiltrated from every side and rotted by traitors, preserve the faith intact even when the division is introduced into our own families and into our churches. In such a situation, we reach the point of thinking that the worst is yet to come. If the hour of Satan’s final assaults has arrived, then we are not finished suffering.” (Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinite. The Whole Truth about Fatima – Vol III)

Indeed, we are not at all finished suffering! And this is why we need to redouble our prayers, especially our Rosaries and Adoration, and our sacrifices. As St. Michael the Archangel urged the children – and us! – Make of everything a sacrifice. Don’t let anything be wasted !

THE MYSTERY OF THE THIRD SECRET

Our Lady of the Rosary appearing at Fatima more than one hundred years ago  as the Woman Clothed with the Sun – “She was of light” as Lùcia said – revealed herself to her children  just before the  Red Dragon appeared  in the East.  This Red Dragon is the Ancient Adversary who calls  forth the two beasts who serve him. Thus we see The Woman appearing  to warn us and prepare us at the very hour when the first Beast of the Apocalypse was taking shape – a Beast which She came to designate and denounce by name – announced equally, in Her third Secret, the events corresponding to the third image of the triptych in chapters 12 and 13 of the Apocalypse. Sister Lùcia told us that the third Secret was in the Apocalypse, which indicates this passage concerning the apostasy of the pastors of the Church, placing themselves at the service of an impious political power – chapter 13, verses 11 to 18.

“As the Secret in its entirety describes the final combat of the forces of Evil against the Immaculate Virgin, we would find there the three satanic powers described by Saint John: in the first part, the devil himself and the vision of hell corresponding to the Dragon of the Apocalypse; in the second part, the hegemony of Russian communism corresponds to the first Beast; finally, in the third part, the apostasy and treason of many pastors of the Church correspond to the description of the false lamb, the false prophet in the service of the Beast.

Moreover, in perfect coherence with our previous demonstrations on the most probable contents of the third Secret, its conclusion, full of an invincible hope and announcing a decisive victory, confirms us in this hypothesis. After the revelation of the third Secret, the Blessed Virgin continues:  “In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, and she will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.”

“Such a triumph, announced so solemnly – and which, as we will see, is not without an evocation of the future Jerusalem, the Christendom of tomorrow, of Chapters 21 and 22 of the Apocalypse: ‘and I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God…’ (Apocalypse 21: 2) – such a triumph of itself indicates above all the spiritual significance of the tragic battle preceding it.

And its temporal expression –  “in the end” – so heavy with implications, allows us to guess the furious struggle, no doubt even the reversals and seeming total defeat that will come before the final victory of the New Eve. Does not this triumph come to close a battle which was above all Her own, the one announced in the proto-Gospel?  “She shall crush thy head.” Yes, it is she who will overcome the diabolical wave sweeping over the Church, the impiety installed even in the sanctuary, and all the obscure (occult) forces which foment apostasy. For clothed with the power of the Most High, She is more fearsome than an army in battle array:  “Fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array”, according to the words of the Canticle of Canticles (Cant. 6: 10).

The Triumph of her Immaculate Heart  is  the victory of the Faith, which defeats heresy, apostasy and corruption, restoring the Church. This will be the final triumph of the Woman of the Apocalypse, the Mother of the faithful.  Her decisive victory over the Prince of lies, instigator of all heresy, all schism, all impiety and apostasy: “Cunctas haereses tu sola interemisti in universo mundo!” You alone, O Mary Immaculate, Virgin Most Faithful have destroyed all heresies in the whole world!”

Our Lord Jesus Christ came to us through the Blessed Virgin Mary and it is through her that He wills that we return to Him.  She, the Mother of Fair Love calls us through love, with her Rosary., with our scapular and consecration. These simple remedies, so rich in graces should not be ignored!

In St. Paul’s Epistle to Ephesians, we read:

“Finally,  brethren, be strengthened in the Lord, and in the might of His power. Put you on the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore take unto you the armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice, And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace: In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God). ( Ephesians 6, 10-17)

Thank you for reading and for your many prayers; I pray for you always!

Pray the Rosary for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the salvation of souls!

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

The Little Book of Infinite Love

 

This article was originally scheduled for tomorrow, but I must post it today, I simply cannot wait any longer, for my beloved granddaughters, little Maria Lúcia, who just made her First Holy Communion on Corpus Christi Sunday, and for lovely Irene and for sweet Carmen.

“Always be sure that whatever you do is done in love, for God our Father created us by love, and God the Son, our Savior, redeemed us by love, and God the Holy Ghost sustains us by love. And they have given us their love, the Immaculate Virgin Mary, to be our own dear Mother, to help us live this love in all that we do.”

“The Book of Infinite Love” is a little-known treatise written by a French Visitation nun in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. As we approach the end of the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I thought you might like the following small essay from Mother Louise Margaret Claret, whose mission was to teach that the infinite love of God is manifested through the prodigious overflowing love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus through His priests.

.  .  . The religion of the Sacred Heart is not a simple devotion of sentiment; it is not even a special isolated dogma, it is the synthesis of all Catholic doctrine, of the whole Catholic moral law summed up in the love of Jesus Christ for us and of our love for Jesus Christ. There is then for us a theology of the Sacred Heart. This theology, according to St. Augustine and Bossuet, from the consideration that God is the eternal Heart, (“Deus est caritas” I John, IV, 8) finds in this Charity the purpose if not the explanation of the whole series of Christian mysteries.

. God loves: to love is to give. God has given us everything, and has given Himself to us. He commenced by giving existence to us and to all beings: that is creation!

. God loves: to love is to speak, to make oneself heard by the person who is loved, and that is Revelation, the Sacred Scriptures, God’s law!

. God loves: to love is to make oneself like the person loved; that is the Incarnation.

. God loves: to love is to save the person loved, cost what it may; to die for the person loved: that is the Redemption!

. To love is to wish to be perpetually present to the person loved: that is the Blessed Eucharist, the real presence, the altar!

. To love is to give oneself to each of those whom one loves; that is Holy Communion, the Last Supper!

. Finally, to love is to wish to make happy with oneself for ever all those whom one has loved; that is the eternal happiness of Heaven!—A vast synthesis of love, which is also a synthesis of our faith!

“As for us,” cries St. John, “we believe in the love which God has for us” (I John IV, 16). Everything is included in that. St. Francis de Sales was right when he said:  “In the Church of Jesus Christ everything belongs to love, everything is founded on love and everything is love. God, who has created man after His own image, wishes that in man, as in God, everything be regulated by love and for love.”

The devotion to the Blessed Eucharist and the devotion to the Sacred Heart are not only two sister devotions; in reality, they are only one and the same devotion. They complete each other and develop each other; they blend so perfectly together that one cannot stand without the other, and their union is absolute. Not only can one of these devotions not be prejudicial to the other but, because they complete each other and perfect each other, they also reciprocally increase each other. If we have devotion to the Sacred Heart, we will wish to find It, to adore It, to love It, to offer It our reparation and praise, and where shall we look for It but in the Blessed Eucharist where It is found eternally living?

If we love this adorable Heart, we will wish to unite ourselves to It, for love seeks union, we will wish to warm our hearts by the ardour of this divine fire, but to reach the Sacred Heart, to take hold of It, to put It in contact with our own, what shall we do? Shall we scale heaven to bear away the Heart of Jesus Who reigns triumphant in glory? There is no need to do so. We will go to the Blessed Eucharist, we will go to the tabernacle, we will take the white Host, and when we have enclosed it in our breast, we will feel the divine Heart truly beating beside our own.

The devotion to the divine Heart infallibly brings souls to the Blessed Eucharist, and faith in and devotion to the Blessed Eucharist necessarily lead souls to discover the mysteries of Infinite Love of which the divine Heart is the organ and the symbol. If we believe in the Blessed Eucharist, we believe in Love. It is the mystery of Love. But in itself love is immaterial and imperceptible; to fix our minds and our senses, we seek an outward form for love.

The Love of His Heart

This form, this sensible manifestation, is the divine Heart. The Sacred Heart, the Blessed Eucharist, Love are one and the same thing. In the tabernacle we find the Host; in the Host Jesus; in Jesus His Heart; in His Heart, Love, Infinite Love, divine Charity, God, the principle of life, living and life-giving. But still more: The ineffable mystery of the Eucharist can only be explained by Love. By the love of God, yes, but by the Love of Jesus, God and man. Now the love of Jesus is the love of His Heart; to sum up all in one word, it is His Heart; therefore the Blessed Eucharist is explained only by the Sacred Heart. The Blessed Eucharist is the sublime completion of the love of Jesus for man; it is the highest, the last expression; the paroxysm, if I may so express myself, of this incomprehensible love.

Nevertheless, without the Blessed Eucharist we could have believed in love; the Incarnation would have sufficed for that; a single drop of the bitter chalice of Passion would have been more than superabundant to prove to us that love. We would have been able to love the Heart of Jesus, we would have been under the obligation of loving It, of believing that it is sovereignly good, even if It had not gone to this divine excess of the Blessed Eucharist. But, because It has invented this marvel, how we should love this Sacred Heart so divinely tender, so inexpressibly delicate and liberal; so—shall I dare to say it—so madly and so passionately fond of Its creatures!

Yes, the Blessed Eucharist augments and inflames our love for the divine Heart. But because we know that we shall find this Sacred Heart only in the Blessed Eucharist, because we are thirsty for union with this Heart so tender and so ardent, we go to the Blessed Eucharist, we prostrate ourselves before the Blessed Sacrament, we adore the Host radiating its influence from the monstrance. We go to the Holy Table with ardent avidity; we lovingly kiss the consecrated paten on which the divine Host reposes each day. We surround with honour, respect and magnificence the tabernacle in which Jesus, living and loving, makes His dwelling.

Oh! it is impious to say that the worship of the Sacred Heart can injure devotion to the Blessed Eucharist. What! will the knowledge of Him Who gives the gift, make us despise the gift? No, the more we love the divine Heart, the truer our worship of It is, the more extensive and enlightened it is, the more also will our worship and our love for the divine Eucharist develop and grow strong.

Now, readers, this is why the ancient enemy is filled with such determination to destroy the sacred priesthood, destroy the Holy Sacrifice and replace them with pagan superstitions. He will not succeed but this will bring on a time of great suffering. Dear ones, we know the answer to this satanic assault!

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