The Sixth Trumpet Update 2018

In 2016, we posted “The Sixth Trumpet”. Today, I’d like to take a few excerpts from that post and put them with excerpts from an article on “Gates of Vienna”,  titled, “The Islamization of Europe: The Evidence”.  Perhaps we may discover a trend…

“One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter. And the sixth angel sounded the trumpet:” (Apoc. 9,  12)
[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  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.

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.”

The vastness of the multitude of killers, 200,000,000, indicates an universal revolution and Father Kramer’s Book of Destiny speculates that these murderous horsemen may be Muslims. In an earlier post, “Islam and the Errors of Russia”, we stated that Islam is actually a part of the scourge of the errors of Russia, which resulted from the Pope’s failure to Consecrate that poor country.  And now, when we view these horsemen in the light of the Message of Fatima, we see that they represent the full vengeance of the errors of Russia (dialectical materialism, atheistic marxism) wreaked upon mankind, including the violence of Islamic persecution with nothing to mitigate its wrath. With the uncontested islamic immigration, we see the stage being set for a war of unprecedented violence.

There is no human force that can withstand, much less conquer this chastisement, but only the merciful intervention of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, when the Pope and remaining hierarchy, chastened at last, obey God in all humility and obedience and finally Consecrate Russia as requested.

Now let’s update with some new information from a couple of sites that discuss the “ummah”.

First, this quote from a prominent Islamic scholar:

 O Allah, we are here to make Da’wah….“Our duty is not only to be a good person as an individual. It is also a good duty to train ourselves in organizational structure, and to be, for example, a part of Ummah [Muslim nation] and any organization in which we are working, we are supposed to serve the Ummah [Muslim nation], to bring the Ummah [Muslim nation] back [to its glorious era]….. Islam as a solution for humanity. (Sheikh Dr. Iqbal Al-Hadvi in Canada, who called for da’wah and a replacement of democracy with sharia law.)

You see, islam does not recognise any law but its own, nor any national borders set by non-muslims. Hence, the more than 20,000,000  muslims now occupying the 28 counties of the European union consider it their right to go where they will and to  eliminate any hindrances from non-muslims.  To explain further, we offer the illuminating words of  Turkish President Erdogan as quoted by Gates of Vienna:

In 2017 the Turkish President was upset that he and his representatives were not allowed to travel to Holland during the Turkish national election. Understandable, really, when you understand than the Ummah tolerates no borders.

President Erdogan stated, “I can travel anywhere I like with a diplomatic passport”. Insulted, he also added: “Who do they think they are? They have 40,000 soldiers in their Army.  I have 400,000 Turks living there.”— Recep Tayyip Erdogan (2017)

And, it was Erdogan who recited the following threat in 1998 “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…”— Recep Tayyip Erdogan (1998). Quoted  from Gates of Vienna here.

Their informative post asserts that the 28 countries of Europe are already islamicised and provides the figures to back their assertion.  For instance: The conservative number of muslims in the European Union as of last year is 20, 000,000.  And it is increasing exponentially.  In England, for instance, “The Ummah population in Britain has grown from 105,000 in 1960 to five million in just 60 years. A 47-fold increase in the size of the Ummah in just 60 years.” 

“Within the EU, the Ummah can move unhindered. Nation states that refuse to allow entry into their territories are ostracised and penalised by the European Union, which has at least two further candidate Islamic countries, Albania and Turkey (100 million Muslims) awaiting membership.”

The Gates of Vienna article concludes,  “…Can Europe really still be called European? When a completely foreign ideological and cultural population exceeds that of 25 indigenous peoples?”

Now we return to “The Sixth Trumpet”. Speaking of the vast number of horsemen, and quoting from Fr. Berry:

The riders and their horses, “inflict upon men the plagues of fire, smoke, sulfur. The fire is persecution and war. Smoke symbolizes obscuring of doctrine and the weakening of faith; sulfur, the moral depravity which follows.”

Note that St. John here states that, “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.” Serpents have always been symbols of lying and hypocrisy, which characterize the enemies within the Church, that is the Lavender/St. Gallen “Mafia” of Cardinal Danneels and Bergoglio.

Today,  the Church is occupied by the same errors of Russia, i.e., atheistic marxism, dialectical materialism, warned of by Our Lady of the Rosary nearly a century ago.   Thus is the Church suffering through a betrayal such as never before seen, while the majority of Catholics are indifferent.

The horses and their riders exemplify violent power, extensive, all-pervasive propaganda and heretofore unheard-of abuses against the faith and persecutions of the faithful. Those who survive will be still further separated; the faithful who are marked with the sign of faith will be strengthened, while those of the world will persist with even harder hearts, for they, “did not do penance from the works of their hands”, that is, they continued blaspheming, lying and committing all manner of fornication, murder and idolatry.

Father Berry tells us that the state of sin persists even after the plague of the murderous horsemen has passed, and will continue,

“until the Church is fully prepared to carry through with God’s special direction and help overthrow the reign of evil and the conquest of the world for Christ.”

The apocalyptic 200,000,000 horsemen include, along with those of the ummah, all those who will engage in the decisive battle, that is marxists of all sorts, including especially those within the Church. Pope Francis and all who follow him have chosen the side they are on.  Through their unnatural lusts for false doctrine and depravity, through their ingrained deceit and arrogance, they have usurped the positions of power in the visible church which has eclipsed but cannot destroy the true Church for she is the Bride of Christ. Therefore it is wholly consistent that Pope Francis has taken sides with diabolical marxism against the true Catholic remnant in China and with the islamic war against Christians throughout the world. This will, in time, come to the Vatican and we shall see the  entirely predicable effects of the Pope’s “merciful” policies towards the enemies of God.

While the material chastisement of the horsemen is looming on the near horizon, the pope of our chastisement is pursuing the demolition of the faith and the nearly total destruction of the channels of sanctifying grace with brutal intensity. 

Both the material and the spiritual chastisements will continue apace until mankind repents, however few remain. The longer that God is disobeyed, the more spiritual assistance will be withdrawn and the ancient enemy will appear to prevail everywhere.  We are approaching rapidly the time when we will have to rely on the Rosary and the level of consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary that we have achieved. 
It will no longer be a matter of growing in grace but of a gritty determination to remain faithful through our consecrations to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  With the ever-increasing power of satan in the world, distractions and disorientation will provide immense obstacles to those attempting to remain faithful. 
Watch and pray,

“Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe, and do penance. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.” (Apoc. 3,3).

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

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

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

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

The Seven Trumpets 2018

As we promised, we continue with our re-postings on the Message of Fatima in the light of Sacred Scripture and Catholic Prophecy. From June 2015:

Seven Trumpets

In answer to requests, we will be looking at the state of the Bergoglio Church in the light of the Message of Fatima and the Apocalypse. Sister Lucia is reported to have remarked when asked about the Third Secret that it was to be found in the Apocalypse, especially Chapters 8-13; that is to say, beginning with the Seven Trumpets.

Prior to Fatima, Our Lady appeared at Quito, La Salette, Knock and (after Fatima) at Akita, all of which had a common thread of dire warning. Even though the apparition at Knock was silent, its prophetic relevance is clear from our perspective after 50 years of modernist “renewal”. Let’s start with Pope Paul’s Trumpets: In an interview with the Italian newspaper Avvenire, French writer Jean Guitton, a close friend of Pope Paul VI, recalled this interesting bit of history,

“It was the final session of the Council, the most essential in which the Pope was to bestow upon all humanity the teachings of the Council. He announced this to me with these words, ‘I am about to blow the Seven Trumpets of the Apocalypse.’ “ (Interview, 11 October, 1992, cited in the excellent book, Animus Delendi – I, by Atila Sinke Guimaraes).

Now, the source of this quote, Avvenire,  is the newspaper of the Italian Episcopal Conference, so it is fairly safe to assume the integrity of the information. Although Guitton seemed to think little of the remark, later mentioning that the Apocalypse speaks of the triumph of the Church, that is not exactly what is referred to in the passage cited by Pope Paul VI. The Angels and Trumpets are introduced in Chapter 8, “And I saw seven angels standing in the presence of God; and there were given to them seven trumpets.”  The Angels  and Trumpets and the events they usher in are  severe chastisements, foretelling in symbolic language widespread heresy, apostasy, violent wars and persecutions, and earthquakes.

Later, 29 June, 1972 on the occasion of the Ninth Anniversary of his election, Paul Paul lamented,

And there were given to them seven trumpets…

“We believed that after the [Second Vatican] Council would come a day of sunshine in the history of the Church. But instead there has come a day of clouds and storms, and of darkness …  “And how did this come about? We will confide to you the thought that maybe we ourselves admit in free discussion, that may be unfounded, and that is that there has been a power, an adversary power. Let us call him by his name: the Devil. … It is as if from some mysterious crack, no, it is not mysterious, from some crack the smoke of Satan has entered the Temple of God.”

Pope Paul’s quote comes from the Apocalypse, Chapter 9, verses 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.” 

It goes on to describe how from the smoke of the pit come locusts, which are interpreted by some commentators as heretics, in fact, that is one of the explanations given in the Douay Rheims Bible.

In addition, the darkening of the sun is also seen as prophetic for a loss of faith.

In his fictional work, Windswept House, Father Malachi Martin described the Enthronement of Lucifer within the Vatican on 29 June, 1963, which of course was the date that Montini ascended the Papacy as Paul VI. In a subsequent interview, Father Martin confirmed that the Enthronement of Satan had actually occurred although he changed some details for his fictional account.

In March 2010, Father Gabriele Amorth, the chief Vatican exorcist, told Italian newspaper La Repubblica: “The devil resides in the Vatican and you can see the consequences. … He added: “When one speaks of ‘the smoke of Satan’ [a phrase coined by Pope Paul VI in 1972] in the holy rooms, it is all true – including these latest stories of violence and paedophilia.”

In 2002, Solange Strong Hertz wrote a book in which she builds a very good case that we are well into the period of the Apocalyptic Trumpets. The title is in fact, The Sixth Trumpet. It is published by The Remnant Press, As of 9 October, 2015, this book is available brand new from Remnant Press or from Amazon.

Father Amorth linked the clergy sexual abuse cases with satan’s influence in the Church, and in this, he is right on target. As Sister Lucia reminded us, the devil knows exactly what will destroy the most souls. And what has the Vatican done about it? Under Pope Francis, sodomy seems to be supported as never before, as anyone who has been paying attention knows full well.

There is much more on this important subject as we move closer to the final Synod. Pope Francis is releasing his encyclical in which he is expected to commit the Church even more closely to to the anti-Christ agenda of the United Nations, then, in September he will come to America to push the Kasper homo-agenda, followed by a visit to the United Nations, all in the run-up to October’s Synod. Truly, “The worst are full of passionate intensity”!

Update, added August, 2015:

NOTE: This post is one of many that I am restoring gradually in my struggles to rebuild our blog on our new platform. It was written before the Pope’s “Gaia Encyclical” and it is interesting to see how much has happened in the few months since it was originally posted. We’ve had the heartbreaking catastrophe of the Irish pro-sodomy vote, the U.S. Supreme Court’s awful ruling in favor of homosexuals’ “rights” over against Christian’s rights, and the gruesome news of the Planned Parenthood ghouls not only hacking babies into pieces – after all, that’s old news, isn’t it? – but actually engaging in a capitalistic enterprise of of these tiny baby body parts. Not a murmur from the “Vicar of Christ on Earth”, the spiritual leader of the Roman Catholic faithful who has bigger fish to fry, a Church to change “irreversibly”, and little time to do it in.

And so the slide towards the climax of the Chastisement continues apace. My  intention is to provide you with some appropriate solidly Catholic prophecies, and some solid spiritual writing to strengthen your resolve as we gird ourselves for the tsunami that approaches. In the meantime, please keep us in your prayers, and we too, pray for you.

NOTE January, 2018. These old posts are like time capsules and as we look over them, we note the “progress” in the Bergoglian  church in the three years since it was written.  Pope Francis has shown support for notorious abortionists Emma Bonino and Lilianne Ploumen, has deconstructed the Pontifical Academy for Life and reconstituted it in his own  image in order to promote the anti-life agenda of contraception, abortion and euthanasia. He has continued to wage war against any slightest adherence to the doctrine and practice of the true Faith with his misleading and destructive “Amoris Laetitia”. He has insulted the faithful at every turn, most recently in Chile where he forced Juan Barros as bishop on the remaining faithful of that suffering church despite the outrage of the faithful of Chile.  Pope Francis has given the utmost support to the pro-homosexual priests and prelates from de Kesel to Cupich, to Martin as we have documented.  He has continued to  insult Our Lady of Fatima  on her Centenary. And all this is capped off by honoring Martin Luther while erasing the Immaculata from the Crucifixion  and by insulting the Holy Family and the Birth of Christ at Christmas with the disgusting spectacle of the Vatican’s “Nativity” scene.  For truly, “the worst are full of passionate intensity”, for they know their time is short. And now is almost up.

I have been reminded that soon it will be February 2, the Feast of the Purification of Mary and Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple. It marks the end of Christmastide and is traditionally a time for renewing our Total Consecrations to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is not too late to begin reviewing and preparing for this renewal of your Consecrations!

Remember, pray the Rosary and confound the devil and those who serve him!

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

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

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

His Humble Legacy 2

 

A few weeks ago, in “His Humble Legacy“, we wrote about the miserable status of the piazza and colonade area in the Vatican, quoting from an article by Anthony Wagner on Lifesite News.

“The … appearance of the seagulls, who scavenge on any filth they can find, is actually not new to St. Peter’s Square during this pontificate. In the adjoining piazza and around the colonnade, passers-by have been shocked at the degradation and squalor that emerges there at night. The seagulls descend on the headquarters of the Church and pick at rubbish bins, leaving debris strewn across the sidewalks and roads.

“The homeless are allowed to bed down under main thoroughfares and archways, on the outskirts of the colonnade and in front of the Holy See press office. Often they are drunk and disorderly, sometimes threatening passing tourists hoping to get a shot of the basilica.”

Wagner notes that Pope Francis has “created a culture of homelessness around the Vatican” and then remarks that  “Some have called the miserable scene ‘apocalyptic.’

“And yet the general waste and degeneration, the screaming, scavenging birds circling over the Vatican like a dead carcass, is perhaps highly symbolic of this pontificate, one that many see leading the Church in the direction of a kind of death. And all the time that the degradation and squalor continue in the Church — both physically and morally — no one is really speaking up and coming to her rescue.”

 

The instances of the venomous nature of the reign of Pope Francis are becoming too numerous to mention but Sandro Magister has a post that must not be ignored. I hope that other blogs will pick this up and give it some exposure. Magister has a heart rending article by Professor Pietro de Marco , San Marco Must Not Die,  on the impending loss of an irreplaceable monument of the Faith. the Dominicans are working assiduously to shut down the Convent of San Marco in Florence, Italy.  I give you a teaser quote in the hope you will give it a few moments of your time:

The shutdown of the convent of San Marco in Florence has been confirmed by a recent new resolution, in July of 2017, from the chapter of the Roman province of the Dominican fathers, which includes central Italy and Sardinia.

The shutdown, first deliberated in September of 2013 and then postponed, now also stipulates:

– the loss of the identity and functions of the “Levasti” Library, unique in Florence for its library collection in religious studies and its network of intellectual relations;
– the downsizing to online distribution only of the “Rivista di Ascetica e Mistica,” created in 1929;
– an uncertain fate for the historic Pharmacy;
– in short, practically an obliteration that has the strange flavor of a “damnatio memoriae” that has fallen upon the last Dominican generations of San Marco.

It may in fact escape one who does not know the recent history of the Florentine and Italian Church that San Marco appeared to become the focus, in the second half of the twentieth century, of a resistance of high intellectual and spiritual quality, as of an incisive polemical and critical “vis,” against the direction taken by the Catholic Church after the council, markedly in Florence but everywhere else as well.

It was a resistance made up simultaneously of the continuity of the study of Saint Thomas (with Fathers Centi and Boccanegra) and by the history of spiritual and mystical forms (with Father Colosio). Reasons more than sufficient, in the current climate of the Church, to finally decree the extinction of the “conventus,” meaning both the house and community of San Marco, and the obliteration of its memory.

There is a link in the article to the online petition if you are inclined.

The subject of the withdrawal of God’s grace has been covered here often, and the impending shut-down of the Dominican Convent of San Marco is just one more step, I suppose. But it just struck me so poignantly. To our regular readers, you, I know, you at least understand that even as the apostates who now occupy the leadership of the Church are hellbent on destroying every vestige of grace, beauty and truth, we must work even harder to believe, adore, hope and love (as the Angel urged us) and draw Our Beloved Lord’s grace and mercy back to this suffering Church.

The success of the enemy occurs not just because he is so powerful, but because of the indifference of most Catholics.  It leaves the greater burden to us, but we are Mary’s children, after all. And we are not without powerful weapons of our own – our Mother’s  Rosary, her brown scapular, her miraculous medal, and our good Saint Joseph. The most fortunate of us have good priests and the true Mass, and thus the Blessed Sacrament; but even when we do not have them, and many do not, we have spiritual Mass and Holy Communion. I have found that the more that is taken away from me by the world, the more generously prayers are heard. Our Lord is never closer to us that when we take up our crosses with the sweet love that pleases Him so.

I hope that you all know that none of us is ever alone! We have all the glorious saints and martyrs with us, and in every prayer     to Our Lady, we have the Father, Son and Holy Ghost and all the choirs of Angels with us. Can you imagine for a moment how awfully dark and dismal if must have been as our Lord Jesus Christ died on Calvary?  Just think how terribly desolate that scene is! And yet, right then, Our Lord was winning! Not the devil. No, he is a loser for all eternity, no matter how victorious he seems right now. We must take heart, and take up our Rosaries in renewed faith and pour out our love and our trust in Him, trusting to our Blessed Mother of Mercy and her promise.

Please, now more than ever, Pray the Rosary and confound satan and those who serve him.

NOTE: For yet another dismal incident confirming the intent of the ancient enemy now occupying the Vatican, see Rorate Caeli’s  newest post, “The Franciscans of the Immaculate: A courageous voice speaks out”  by Father Paolo Siano,  wherein Father Siano documents the  damnatio memoriae, which  current occupiers of the persecuted order are attempting to plant among the new FI . The enemy is consistent and unrelenting. Should we be less?

Convergence

In an earlier post “How long, O Lord, How Long” from April 2015, we wrote:

Our Lord told Sister Lucia in an apparition in Rianjo, Spain in the summer of 1931, “Make it known to My ministers, given that they follow the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of My command (to consecrate Russia), they will follow him into misfortune. It is never too late to have recourse to Jesus and Mary.

Sister Lucia reported later that Our Lord also complained to her, They did not wish to heed My request! … Like the King of France they will repent of it, and they will do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread its errors in the world, provoking wars and persecutions against the Church. The Holy Father will have much to suffer.” (from Fatima.org)

Our Lord was referring to His request to King Louis XIV of France on June 17, 1689 to solemnly consecrate his country to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Our Lord made His request known through St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and no French King publicly obeyed the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Eventually, on June 17, 1789, 100 years later, King Louis XVI was stripped of his power by the National Assembly and less than four years later, was beheaded. It is said that while he was in the Bastille, King Louis XVI attempted to consecrate France, but by that time, of course, it was far too late to achieve the desired results.

Also, in that post we observed that Pope Francis would use the Synod to force through his “irreversible changes” just prior to the Centenary of Fatima. We noted that the centenary of Fatima coincides with three other anniversaries, all of which are  inimical  to the Faith, that is,  the 500th anniversary of Luther’s Revolution, the 300th anniversary of the establishment of Freemasonry and the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.   Quite a convergence of historical forces.

In  our last post,  on  January 26, we concluded,

The reason for this repost right now is to help readers to understand that a deadline has passed. In the earlier instance in France, passing the deadline resulted in: the horrific Reign of Terror of the French Revolution, the destruction of the French monarchy, a further step in the destruction of Christendom which had begun with  Luther’s revolt and lastly, the leap in power of the occult forces which appear to be all but fully in control now.

Which leads to the inevitable question – what “irreversible” chain of events has now been set in motion?

The Centenary of Fatima – A Convergence

Of the four anniversaries marked in 2017, three commemorated the powers that war against Christ, His Church and His Immaculate Mother.  The three occult powers – freemasonry, protestantism and marxism,  form a diabolical trinity of their own and now seem to be coalescing and gaining strength against the Woman.  For the moment, they appear on the ascendency. 

Although freemasonry publicly claims its founding in 1717, that is a masterful deception for this society which lives by deceit. It was from this synagogue of satan that the protestant revolution and the marxist revolution were financed and sustained.

And so we see that 2017 was a momentous occasion, wherein the battle lines were more clearly drawn as the forces assembled.  It might seem a bit daunting, this Woman against the staggering  array of dark forces which now appear to control even the Church. But we recall Lepanto, where thousands of battle hardened mohammedan warriors fled in terror at the sight of the Woman looming up before them, high above  the vast fleet. Our Lady of the Rosary vanquished the enemy at Lepanto as  the small but brave fleet of Christendom admitted afterwards. It was She and her Rosary that won the day, make no mistake. 

 

The Vicar of Christ  Leads the Way

As the forces coalesce and align for the momentous battle, one would expect to see  the Vicar of Christ lead His Church to celebrate  the Immaculata,  Our Lady of Victory, rallying her children for the battle, helping to lead them to victory.  But what did this  Humble Pope of Surprises®  do instead?

The unfortunate  man who now occupies the See of Peter did lead his decimated and confused flock; but where? In the entire centenary year, where did Pope Francis lead the Church? Why he went to Fatima!

 

The Pope Goes to Fatima

Pope Francis travelled to Fatima Portugal for a two day visit May 12- 13, 2017 for the canonization of the two youngest of the Fatima seers, Francisco and Jacinta Marto. 

On May 12: The Pope asked tens of thousands of pilgrims to reflect on “which Mary” they choose to venerate, “the virgin Mary from the Gospel” or “one who restrains the arm of a vengeful God?”

Note the Pope’s dishonest rhetorical device  –  a loaded question leading his audience to conclude that one must choose between the “Mary of the Gospel” or the Mary depicted at  the vision of the Third Secret of Fatima. The Pope’s reference to “one who restrains the arm of a vengeful God”  refers to the Vatican’s own text of the Third Secret released in June 2000:

“at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’ “

Pope Francis’s remark is thus an attack on Our Lady of Fatima and an attack against the teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. For the public ministry of Our Lord began with His call to penance (“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say: Do penance, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 3, 17) and the the last book of the Bible, the Apocalypse also contains Our Lord’s call to penance and warning of chastisement (“Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance.” Apoc. 3, 19).

In a subsequent talk, he continued to abuse the Blessed Virgin and her Message of Fatima,

Those who emphasise God’s punishment of sinners, he said, commit “a great injustice” to him by not recognising that sinners “are forgiven by his mercy.”  … “Mercy has to be put before judgment,” he said, “and, in any case, God’s judgment will always be rendered in the light of his mercy.”… “With Mary, may each of us become a sign and sacrament of the mercy of God, who pardons always and pardons everything,” he said.

Note his charge, “Those who emphasise God’s punishment of sinners”. This applies to Our Lady of Fatima who revealed the reality of hell and the eternal punishment of sinners  in a frightening vision and warned the children, “You have seen hell, where the souls of poor sinners go.”   Thus, the pope accused God’s own most Blessed Mother of committing “a  great injustice” to God. In this, he managed to attack both Our Lady and her Message of Fatima. And, as always, he never mentions sin or the need for penance.

On the papal airplane, ostensibly speaking of the false apparitions at Medjugorje, he struck at her yet  again,

“I prefer Our Lady as mother, our mother, and not Our Lady as head of the post office who sends a message at a stated time.” …
“This isn’t Jesus’ mother,” he said. “And these alleged apparitions don’t have much value. I say this as a personal opinion, but it is clear. Who thinks that Our Lady says, ‘Come, because tomorrow at this time I will give a message to that seer?‘ No!”

Now, we all know that long before the deception of Medjugorje, Our Lady of the Rosary instructed the children of Fatima to come to the same place, at the same time for six months to receive her message. 

It was quite  clever of Pope Francis to embed his criticism of Our Lady of Fatima into his criticism of the false apparitions of Medjugorje, wasn’t it?  So that was how Pope Bergoglio began the commemoration of the Centenary of Our Lady of Fatima in May.  And so we see that Francis was leading his flock in his speeches at Fatima.   And his flock, all over the world, appeared to follow docilely; other than a few rigid, pharisaical trads, few took note of this  and in parishes everywhere, there was rejoicing among the dwindling flock that Pope Francis had “honored” Our Lady of Fatima on her 100th anniversary.

Then, in  October,  we commemorated  the final month of the Fatima visits.  Or did we?

What honor did Pope Francis surprise us with to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the great Miracle of the Sun at Fatima?  I know, perhaps he honored her with a stamp?

Not exactly.

 

The Pope’s Achievement

As October drew to a close Pope Francis chose instead of honoring Our Lady of the Rosary to honor one of her most vitriolic enemies,  once again offending Our Lord Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother, this time in a formal and unmistakable manner:

For the centennial of Our Lady of Fatima, Pope Francis issued a commemorative postage stamp.  Oops, actually he didn’t.

Actually, Pope Francis instead honored the arch-heretic Martin Luther, who destroyed so many souls by preaching many of the same errors spouted by this very same Pope.  The stamp pictures a crucifixion scene from which the Mother of God has been erased and her place given to Luther. St. John is erased too, and supplanted by Philip Melancthon, the heretic who assisted Luther in his work of destruction.

 

And that brings us to the close of the year as Pope Francis and his Lavender Mafia used the holy feast ofChristmas to celebrate their triumph with the sordid squalor of their “Nativity Scene” in St. Peter’s Square. 

Bergoglio’s Vatican Celebrates the Fallen Star

As we see, the Pope continues to lead: he has insisted, quite rigidly, I might add, on his magisterial interpretation of Amoris Laetitia allowing those persistent in mortal sin to receive the Body and Blood of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

And  he has firmly stood by his choice of the disgusting pederast-enabler Juan Barros in Chile.  And again,  he has refused to rescind the the honor he awarded a notorious international abortion promoter, Lilianne Ploumen, who is one of the world’s most virulent abortion promotors.  For more on Ploumen’s work, see here.  

Now, in 2018 as we look back over the events of 2017, we see clearly where Pope Francis is leading the Church.  But very few Bishops and even fewer Cardinals will stand up and speak the truth to the faithful. In fact, the vast majority of them follow along, bleating and tweeting  docilely. And just as in the example we were given by Our Lord Himself, these events are little noted as the dark tide of history sweeps past, hastening to its inevitable conclusion. 

And what of the faithful? Many drift away into various methods of insulating themselves from the stresses of this intense spiritual combat, comforting themselves with devotions which do not require sacrifice.  Many others drift into a narcissistic devotion to their own infallibility, blind to the snare that befell Luther, they attack faithful Catholics, lacking the humility to subject themselves to any authority but their own. In this, they resemble protestants much more than the faithful Catholics they purport to be.

Let them go, let them continue to tweet and post pictures of themselves and their food on facebook for their gullible followers. The time of winnowing passes  rapidly.  

 

And all shall be well 

And all manner of thing shall be well…

 

For the love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray the Rosary!

Solve et Coagula

Motto of the Bishop of Rome: ¡Hagan lío!
That is, “Raise Hell!”

Solve et Coagula is a formula associated with occult, alchemical freemasonry and is also reflected in the motto of the current occupant of the See of Peter, ” ¡Hagan lío!” Or, it can be expressed another way: in Hegelian  terms, “Thesis, antithesis and synthesis”.  All those terms could be applied to the work of  this Pontiff, who is now “humbly” correcting the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. In the Bergoglian Reformation words mean whatever His Holiness intends them to mean and so now, life means death.

Today, a reader alerted us to an informative article on the new focus of the  re-constituted Pontifical Academy for Life. The Humble One® dissolved the Pontifical Academy for Life and rebuilt it into his own image. Now,  in typical marxist fashion, the Academy for Life  is working to extinguish life  at both ends of the spectrum.

Judie Brown’s American Life League carried the following article by Dr. Elizabeth Wickham of Lifetree (link in our sidebar).

Palliative Care, the Real Story

By Elizabeth Wickham, PhD

Because of the new appointments to the Pontifical Academy for Life, its workshops and conferences in 2017, plus the one planned for winter 2018, my comments here are directed to the low-profile wing of the euthanasia movement known as the Third Path, which relies on the new field of palliative medicine. Today’s palliative care is falsely advertised as the moral alternative to physician-assisted suicide. Having studied this low-profile wing for over 15 years, I believe the activities at the Pontifical Academy for Life are very troubling.

I recommend that you read the important book by David Clark entitled Transforming the Culture of Dying: The Work of the Project on Death in America (PDIA). From cover to cover he tells how Soros funding gave a major impetus to the growth of palliative medicine. Palliative medicine became a certified specialty in record time orchestrated by a PDIA board of nine talented doctors, ethicists, and others. Its purpose was to systematically and fully transform care at end of life. They had “a small window of time,” said Susan Block in an interview with David Clark! (see ft. 40 on p. 15)

Soros put PDIA board member Dr. Kathy Foley in charge of allocating $45 million over nine years to several cohorts of elite physicians and a few nurses located throughout the country. Now that very same leader of the Soros scholars is a member of the Pontifical Academy for Life! It is my guess that she heads the new project PAL-LIFE to make palliative care the official and mandatory standard of EOL care globally! They are working at breakneck speed. After these new June 2017 Pontifical Academy for Life appointments, we too have a “small window of time” to protect those who wish to die a holy death in God’s time.

The book is full of interviews with Foley and other board members. There can be no misunderstanding about the goals of palliative medicine after reading this book. And, by the way, David Clark is on the program at the upcoming Feb/Mar 2018 Pontifical Academy for Life workshop at the Vatican. I suggest reading his book, taking notes, and beginning to ask questions. They are being pretty reckless in their cover-up now. I guess they see that their goals are within reach with the experienced Dr. Foley in charge of combining the resources of the Pontifical Academy for Life with Soros’ financial commitment over the years to legalize the low-profile wing of the euthanasia movement.

Foley has been working toward this transformation since before 1994! From PDIA she went on to work with the World Health Organization. She argues that palliative care is a basic human right, and that means that palliative medicines will be readily available anywhere in the world. Read the WHO list of these essential medicines.

And read what Foley said to the British House of Lords in January 2005 about its proposed physician-assisted suicide bill. She testified that more time is needed to condition people’s thinking about PAS and that the right time for legalization of physician-assisted suicide may be 10, 20, or even 30 years away. (House of Lords – Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill – Minutes of Evidence)

The argument that these people are improving healthcare to extend people’s lives by offering good, traditional healthcare that encourages the finest medical techniques IS JUST NOT TRUE. Rather, palliative care discourages use of specialists and encourages more primary care doctors working with community healthcare workers and community-based organizations.

Palliative care is an interdisciplinary team approach where the doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, physical therapists, nutritionists, etc. are trained in using family dynamics to guide the patient into selecting life-limiting goals. The team is trained, not in traditional medical care, but in persuasion techniques. If the patient chooses to receive the best of technical care as long as possible, the palliative care team fails. But they will return to the patient over and over seeking to convince him or his family that traditional medical treatment is outweighed by burdens. This is where the cultural virus of proportionalism comes in. (Read Bishop Gracida’s talk given in Raleigh a couple of years ago.)

Part of their medical treatment is biopsychosocial-spiritual. It begins with a spiritual assessment of the patient. The person who helped develop the tools to take a spiritual history and assess how to incorporate a measure of spirituality into the patient’s electronic health records is another Soros PDIA grant recipient and member of the new Pontifical Academy for Life, Dr. Daniel Sulmasy. He moderated Foley’s presentation at the Oct. 2017 Pontifical Academy for Life meetings and is a former Franciscan brother now married to Lois Snyder Sulmasy. She too is knee deep in this euthanasia movement.

Finally, their policy/grassroots mega organization is called C-TAC or Coalition to Transform Advance Care. C-TAC is determined to break down all barriers to ensuring that every patient has expressed his goals of care in the form of an advanced directive. Read about Respecting Choices in LaCrosse, WI, that trains facilitators to help patients fill out the POLST form. Respecting Choices is now part of C-TAC.

Woe if it be a healthcare power of attorney that asks for medical treatment to preserve and protect life as God would choose! Spend some time reading about how the Coalition to Transform Advance Care is organized and what legislation it is promoting. The coalition wants all barriers to palliative care to fall!

You should be prepared for pressure to see the language in your Health Care Power of Attorney early on. The Third Path seeks to target those with multiple chronic conditions. It does not want palliative care limited to those who are truly near death. I know of someone who was asked to see the language in his HCPOA several times after ordinary knee replacement surgery.

Dr. Elizabeth Wickham is president and founder of LifeTree, located in North Carolina.

Note the signs: Pope Francis has nearly completed his agenda to irreversibly change the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ. What do you think will be Heaven’s response?  “Vigilate et orate”. (Mark 13, 33)

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

  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!

His Humble Legacy

While doing a quick review of favorite sites, I came across an article by Anthony Wagner on  Lifesite News. It was an excellently written piece but that is not the reason for mentioning  it now.  It is because it put me in mind of a quote from a post of evensong’s,  The Mystery of Iniquity“.

“The Word of God tells us that towards the end of time the power of this world will became so irresistible and so triumphant that the Church of God will sink underneath its hand … It will be deprived of protection. It will be weakened, baffled, and prostrate, and will lie bleeding at the feet of the powers of this world.” (Cardinal Manning)

Here is an excerpt from Wagner’s article and see if it does not follow up quite nicely on Cardinal Manning’s prophecy.

“The …appearance of the seagulls, who scavenge on any filth they can find, is actually not new to St. Peter’s Square during this pontificate. In the adjoining piazza and around the colonnade, passers-by have been shocked at the degradation and squalor that emerges there at night. The seagulls descend on the headquarters of the Church and pick at rubbish bins, leaving debris strewn across the sidewalks and roads.

“The homeless are allowed to bed down under main thoroughfares and archways, on the outskirts of the colonnade and in front of the Holy See press office. Often they are drunk and disorderly, sometimes threatening passing tourists hoping to get a shot of the basilica.”

Wagner notes that Pope Francis has “created a culture of homelessness around the Vatican” and then remarks that  “Some have called the miserable scene ‘apocalyptic.’

But the money quote from this excellent article is this:

“And yet the general waste and degeneration, the screaming, scavenging birds circling over the Vatican like a dead carcass, is perhaps highly symbolic of this pontificate, one that many see leading the Church in the direction of a kind of death. And all the time that the degradation and squalor continue in the Church — both physically and morally — no one is really speaking up and coming to her rescue.”

Now readers, you know the reason no one is able to come to the rescue, for Cardinal Manning explained it well: 

“If the barrier which has hindered the development of the principle of antichristian disorder has been the Divine power of Jesus Christ our Lord, incorporated in the Church and guided by his Vicar, then no hand is mighty enough, and no will is sovereign enough to take it out of the way, but only the hand and the will of the incarnate Son of God Himself.”

Now, the Son of God Who removed the barrier to the Ancient Enemy is  also the only One with power to drive out the Enemy. And He  has informed us clearly that  this task has been given to the Immaculata, Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima.

This Saturday is the Feast of the Epiphany – the Manifestation of our Savior, Christ the King and is, as well, the very first First Saturday of Reparation of this new year. Please consider doing what you can to make it the very best day of reparation you can offer to Our Lord Jesus Christ through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Obey Our Lady! So much depends on it. 

  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.

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

A Message to the Laodiceans

Pope Francis, bless his heart, never lets an opportunity pass to give scandal to the faithful and offend our dear Lord Jesus Christ just a bit more.  This Christmas he has outdone himself utterly! Note that instead of the heavenly star leading us to the creche at Bethlehem, we have a star falling downward over a desolate jumble of images which distract from the birth of Our Lord. The Blessed Virgin is depicted spraddle-legged like a coarse woman, lacking in dignity and piety but the obvious “star of the show” is the homo-erotic man posing in the typical, over-the-top  style affected by the Lavender Mafia, who now flaunt their triumph in the Bergoglian Reformation of the Vatican..

Bergoglio’s Vatican Celebrates the Fallen Star

 

Thus Pope Francis gives us a reminder that Advent is a penitential season.  This chaotic, disturbing image which the Vatican presents in place of  a respectful  commemoration of the true Nativity of Christ our Savior is an excellent  image of this false church of the Bergoglian Reformation which has eclipsed the true Church. The backdrop of Bergoglio’s “Nativity” (Of what??) appears to be a ruined facade, and behind that backdrop is the Vatican, occupied by the Enemy at present. Actually, an iconic image, isn’t it? It is no wonder that the  Abbey of Montevergine, which donated the innovative ‘Nativity of Mercy,’ houses the Marian image that has been adopted as patroness by LGBT activists in Italy, according to Lifesite News’s Diane Montagna, here.

At Return to Fatima,  we have asserted many times (here)that when the popes ignored the Message of Fatima and refused to obey Our Lady of the Rosary, the hierarchy of the Church began to fall into error; until at last we saw Pope John XXIII fulfill the prophecy of  Apocalypse 8 as Wormwood. For it was he who made bitter the sacred waters of the faith, causing many souls to die; and who, of course, is hailed as a “saint” by the modernist occupiers.

In our post, “The Fifth Trumpet“, we explained that the second Fallen Star is Pope Paul VI who opened the bottomless pit, and brought in the smoke of satan, allowing the demons of hell access to the heart of the Church,  This was also foreseen by Pope Leo XIII who saw the Vatican literally crawling with demons, swarming all over it.

Our archives contain many posts applying Apocalypse 8-13 to these exact times. We also have articles about Father Malachi Martin’s warning of the enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican. Now note this well: The preliminary enthronement of Lucifer which occurred in the time of Paul VI, the second Fallen Star, had to be completed by the enthronement within 50 years of Lucifer within the Vatican. Not by proxy as occurred the first time, but fully and completely within the Vatican itself.

We posited that this was done shortly after Bergoglio took possession. According to Fr. Malachi Martin, unless this was accomplished within 50 years, the ancient enemy would have failed. Now it is self-evident that the Ancient Enemy has not  failed under Pope Francis but has gotten ever bolder.

Those who doubt this have only to observe the satanic mockery presented as a Nativity Scene at the Bergoglian Vatican this year.  And see the Fallen Star enshrined there for all to hail the Ancient Enemy who now believes that he rules.

And now, what next? What do you think may happen? Perhaps we may find some insight if we return to the Apocalypse. The second Fallen Star opened the bottomless pit (the preliminary enthronement), which allowed the smoke of Satan into the Church, and brought into the heart of the Church  the locusts, predatory modernists and sodomites which attack the Church in her doctrines and her practice. This action, initiated by Pope Paul VI was in time brought to fruition by the election of Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis.  And he has fulfilled the plan almost perfectly, as we see in the Nativity Scene of 2017, exactly one hundred years after our Lady warned of this in her true message at Fatima.

Returning to Apocalypse 9, after the time of the Fifth Trumpet (Paul VI, culminating in Bergoglio), comes the Sixth Trumpet.

A king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans, One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter.  And the sixth angel sounded the trumpet: and I heard a voice from the four horns of the great altar, which is before the eyes of God,  Saying to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates.  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.

And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. 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. 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.  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.  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.

Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts. (Apoc. 9).

And so we see an intimation of what is to come, that is the Horsemen. We explained who these horsemen were in our earlier post, The Sixth Angel. Please note this. This shall come about precisely because of the Laodicean indifference of the majority of Catholics.

The Laodiceans who continue to occupy the pews in this new Church of Bergoglio defend the Bergoglian Nativity Scene, steadfastly refusing to see what is clear to all who have not abandoned the faith. As St. John states in the Apocalypse, the locusts cannot harm those whose faith is strong, that is green, living things, (souls remaining in the state of grace) but only those whose faith has grown lukewarm, that is Laodiceans, to whom Our Lord says,

“…Thou art neither cold, nor hot. I would thou wert cold, or hot. But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest: I am rich, and made wealthy, and have need of nothing: and knowest not, that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. … Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance.  Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my voice, and open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.”

This is the time of winnowing as we noted in our post, “Cardinal Manning on Bergoglio’s Reformation“,

“These are times of sifting. Our Divine Lord is standing in the Church: “His fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly cleanse His (own) and He will gather the grain into His barn, and will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” It is a time of trial, when “some of the learned shall fall,” and those only shall be saved who are steadfast to the end.

With each new assault on the Faith, many faithful Catholics are outraged and angered and as the predations of this papacy continue, many lose faith. We must not lose faith! Let your outrage be the impetus for renewing your consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Please reread Our Lord’s message to the Laodiceans above. Now is the time to open our hearts to the necessary chastisement!  When God chastens us, the proper response is repentance in humility and obedience – not belligerent revolt. If we accept this spiritual chastisement as the merciful work of Our Lord; accepting it as Sister Josefa Menendez accepted the Crown of Thorns offered her by Our Lord Himself, we too shall be victorious over this deluge of sin and misery. For after the Passion and Death, there will come the glorious Resurrection.

Pope Francis and his Lavender Mafia have been allowed to obscure the true Nativity with their disgusting mockery, but we the faithful children of Mary see the Nativity as it is, for it is imprinted on our hearts.

And she shall bring forth a son: and thou shalt call His name JESUS. For He shall save His people from their sins.

 

Remember always, “Pray the Rosary and confound satan and all his works and pomps”.

“Our Lord Jesus Christ has always defended the honor of His Mother.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima to Father Fuentes)

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins and save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy.

“By thy pure and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, obtain for me the conversion of Russia, Spain, Portugal, Europe, and the whole world.” (Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us this prayer;  it is  an essential part of the Fatima Message.)

Our Lady of the Rosary, help of Christians, Victorious over all heresies, lead us to victory!

~ by evensong and peregrine, for love of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the most Holy Rosary, Queen of our hearts.

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

The Lamb with Two Horns

A few  years ago, I wrote, but did not post, an article as a kind of thought experiment. This came as a result of reading  Frere Michel’s Vol. III, and considering it in the context of Father Malachi Martin’s writings about the Vatican. I admit, it was with no small trepidation that I applied it to  our present papacy.  It is clear that Frere Michel never intended to implicate any living person in this role and should not be blamed for my words below.  After I read Magnum Principium, the destructive Motu Proprio of Pope Francis, I updated the discarded article and now post it.

Today, we follow up on an earlier post, The Dragon, the Beast from the Sea and the False Prophet, in which we described that satanic trinity,

“Satan always ever mocks God, and has his own diabolic mockery of the most Holy Trinity, that is, the Dragon as the Father, the Beast from the Sea as the Son and the Second Beast, the Beast from the earth, as the Holy Ghost. Thus, all the diabolical trinity are actually one, as are all the Holy Trinity.”

Further, we explained that these diabolic three are connected to the three portions of the great Secret of Fatima. Now, Frère Michel  believed that the Second Beast, the False Prophet, was the modernist heresy “issuing from the Church herself, hypocritically claiming to be based on the teaching of Christ, while in fact it is inspired by Satan and completely at his service.”

In Frère Michel’s writing, he went as far as he could at that time, (1985)  identifying the First Beast as the worldly powers that always wage war against the Kingdom of God, and the Second Beast,  the False Prophet as the modernist heresy which arose within the Church to attack her in her very heart.

Now, these two movements, that of the Prince of this World and that of the Revolutionaries within the Church,  have coalesced to the point where their leaders are arising. We cannot clearly see the particular figure of the First Beast, that is the Man of Sin, the Lord of the World. I believe he is among us, that is, he is alive at the present time but has not reached fulness of his power. It is also possible that the Second Beast who personifies deception of the true faith is alive as well.

In this diabolical trinity which mimics the life of Christ, the False Prophet will mimic John the Baptist, the Precursor, who prepared the way, preaching penance and baptizing. As John pointed to Jesus,  the False Prophet will lead those in his charge to worship the Lord of the World. Instead of preaching penance, and baptizing, that is,  bringing to the faith, the False Prophet will  encourage sin and will denigrate followers of Christ. John the Baptist died at the hands of the worldly ruler Herod,  because he publicly  condemned Herod’s adultery and called him to repent;  in contrast, Pope Francis approves  of allowing public adulterers to receive the Body and Blood of Christ without repenting their sins.

Although John the Baptist was martyred for the Faith, Pope Francis has foretold that he may be the Bishop in White of the Fatima prophecy. If so,  instead of being a martyr like St. John the Baptist,  Francis may be the victim of the forces he himself has set loose and welcomed into his new  ecumenical church, in other words a martyr not of Christ but of the Adversary.

In the correct hierarchy, the kingdoms of this world serve the Son of God. But for now Satan has established his kingdom in this world, intending to rule over all mankind.  We know that the gates of satan’s  kingdom cannot withstand Christ the King Who is even now expanding His kingdom on this earth, even though it appears to our worldly, sinful eyes that Christ’s Kingdom, the Church, is being vanquished. Remember, Christ won the battle for our salvation by appearing to lose it, that is by dying. Even as His closest friends, His beloved Apostles, mourned His death, He arose victorious.

We understand the oft-quoted phrase, “The gates of hell shall not prevail” best when we see that Christ in His Church today, is aggressively waging war against the Kingdom of Satan in the world. He will prevail against the gates of hell, destroying the Kingdom of Satan on earth. Satan’s gates will not prevail, but he and his “kingdom” will be cast from the earth. Christ the King is not a passive victim, He is actively, aggressively fighting Satan, even as you read these words.  To understand this concept requires prayer, it takes patience.

Think now, Satan’s Kingdom is an earthly Utopia, that is to say, it is a sham, a fake, a fraud. All faithful Catholics understand that there can be no earthly Utopia, for it is a deception of the Devil. However, despite all the warnings of our good popes in the past, the dark forces behind Freemasonry have grown stronger and stronger, promoting Utopia, using the “enlightened” weapons of science, technology and promoting the biggest lies, that is, evolution and “progress”. In fact, we have “progressed” so far that women publicly celebrate their abortions. as prophesied by the Son of God, “The days shall come, wherein they shall say, ‘Blest are the barren, and the wombs that have not borne.’ ”  For more insight into the role of Utopia in these latter times, I found Solange Hertz’s book “Utopia Nowhere” very useful.

The current Pope  was placed in office by a group of heretical churchmen using the powers of him whom they serve and he promotes the Lord of the World’s Utopia tirelessly; he is the precursor of one who is greater than he, and when his task is done he will be dispensed with.  With enough grace perhaps even he can repent.

Sacred Scriptures describes how the Holy Ghost, Third Person of the most Holy Trinity, works to bring about the reign of Christ, and so we see that the False Prophet as third person of the diabolic trinity works to bring about the Utopia of the Kingdom of the Lord of the World.

The work proper to this False Prophet, the diabolical caricature of the Holy Ghost, is in effect to place himself in the service of the first Beast, that is, at the service of the anti-christian political power, in the reverse  image of the Holy Ghost, whose work is to bring about the reign of Christ. Through his deceitful words and  prodigies the False Prophet leads men into the service of the First Beast, by way of his new Ecumenical Church of Man.

In Christendom, the aim of political power is to serve the Kingdom of Christ on earth, but this diabolical  trinity reverses the right order, with the new religion leading men to serve the all powerful State.  And so the Church itself appears in this diabolical disorientation to serve one world government.  To this end, the False Prophet preaches a gospel of pantheism, of ecology worship,  of scientism and atheistic humanism.  This religion even has “heretics” which must be cast out in order to preserve the “integrity” of its new dogma. The new heretics of course, are none other than those who persist in holding to the perennial  truth, the unchanging doctrine of the faith.

At the risk of oversimplifying, I will simply state here that ever since Pope Pius XI, the Popes have responded to the message of Fatima not by humble obedience, but by setting aside their spiritual powers in order to pursue a worldly agenda in response to the warning of Our Lady of Fatima. Many who read this will object, “But Pope Pius XI was the Pope who consecrated the world to the Sacred heart of Jesus and who wrote that inspiring encyclicals ‘Divini Redemptoris‘ against atheistic communism, and ‘Quas Primas‘  on Christ the King.”  Yes, he was, but he also failed to obey the Mother of God and therefore, many of his well-intended actions actually aided the efforts of satanic freemasonry and the spread of atheistic marxism in Russia and throughout the world. For the background on this, the best source is The Whole Truth About Fatima, vol. III, which we have cited repeatedly in our articles.

Upon the death of St. Pius X, the succeeding pope, Benedict XV dismantled his anti-modernist network thus allowing them again to insinuate themselves into the hierarchy, where they have flourished ever since. Frere Michel tells us,

Christians in name, Marxists at heart, their religion is the utopia – equally deadly, whether it is a bloody or a pacifist one – of the Revolution which must always and everywhere be promoted, to the contempt of the happiness of peoples, the good of souls, and the liberty of Holy Church …. this scandalous betrayal of the sacred interests of Christendom, in favor of the impious, religion-persecuting Beast and its projects for world domination, has become the doing of the Church’s highest authorities.

They have been blinded by the most chimerical projects, deceived by traitors who have infiltrated the Church even to its highest spheres. This treason has received a name: it is Ostpolitik. Its effects are known: the revolutionary ideology, the errors of Russia, denounced by Our Lady of Fatima, have penetrated into the Church without an obstacle; since then it has been the ministers of Christ, who as they preach the Revolution under whatever form it takes, contribute in the most effective manner to establishing the empire of the Beast everywhere, as it says in the Book of the Apocalypse…

WITH THE POWER OF THE LAMB

If the “False Prophet” has come forth from within Christendom, as a member of the Church, it is (only) to better betray the Church in favor of the Adversary. It is not, however, just any promoter of heresy. No, the Apostle (St. John)  indicates to us that it will act in the name of the Lamb, with the power of the Lamb. It is remarkable that Saint John is not content to repeat the image of a ravening wolf in sheep’s clothing. In the Apocalypse the expression is stronger: this  “other Beast coming up out of the earth had two horns like those of the Lamb, but it spoke like the Dragon”. . What does this mean, if not that the False Prophet will have all the appearances of speaking in the name of Christ, but in reality his language will be that of Satan? For the Dragon is Satan, without any doubt. And the Lamb, in Saint John’s Gospel as well as in the Apocalypse – and again two verses higher –, always designates Christ as the Priest and Victim of His redeeming sacrifice, and now the glorious Judge in Heaven. Moreover, in biblical language, the horns symbolize power.  In preceding verses, Saint John described the first Beast: it has “ten horns”,  exactly like the Dragon. (Apoc. 12: 3) This is undoubtedly to signify that it has received from it the plenitude of its evil power:  “The dragon gave him his power and his throne.” (Apoc. 13: 2) And there were  “on his horns, ten diadems”,  to underline that political domination is in question, just as in the Book of Daniel.

The analogy sheds light on the description of the second Beast, which itself  “has two horns like those of the Lamb”.  In the vision of the fifth chapter, Saint John had indeed mentioned the “horns of the Lamb”:  “And I saw; and behold in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the ancients, a Lamb standing as it were slain, having seven horns and seven eyes: which are the seven Spirits of God, sent forth into all the earth.” (Apoc. 5: 6).

In this spectacular vision of Christ the Redeemer, Who is simultaneously Victim, King and High Priest of the New Covenant, founder of the new priesthood,   The seven horns and the seven eyes signify the divine plenitude of His power as “Prince of the kings of the earth”, and eternal Priest,  Founder and Head of His Church, Who to spread it has received the fullness of the sevenfold Spirit.

A few pages further, describing the False Prophet as the second Beast  “having two horns like those of the Lamb”, does Saint John not suggest that it will act in some way with the power of the true Lamb, “in the Name of Christ, in Nomine Domini”?  However, in this crime it does not act with the plenitude of the divine authority of Christ, symbolized by the seven horns of the vision of chapter five, seven being the figure of perfection. The Lamb in the service of the Beast has only two horns.

Under the evangelical appearances of humility and apostolic charity, disguised as an “Apostle of Christ”, as a “minister of justice”, as Saint Paul said, it will speak like the Dragon, to the contempt of Divine Truth, misleading the faithful by this supreme imposture.

Today the tragic reality opens our eyes to the obvious meaning of the prophecy. To fill the Devil’s insatiable lust for power, not only bodies but souls must bend beneath his yoke  and serve and adore him. For this purpose, the First Beast, the political power, raises up the Second Beast, the False Prophet who becomes, under the guise of Vicar of Christ, the Vicar of deceit and even murder, serving all kinds of iniquity.  The one, holy and apostolic Church becomes the Church of divisive heresy, scandal and corruption, the slave of the Beast and the Dragon who control it as part of Satan’s Empire.

THE PRODIGIES OF THE FALSE PROPHET

To lead the faithful astray, the False Prophet of the Apocalypse will also work stunning prodigies. It will be like the false prophets mentioned by Deuteronomy, who to lead the children of Israel into apostasy,  performed astonishing prodigies. They were impostors who came from the people of God, but in reality they were “sons of Belial”. (Deut. 13: 1-19) The False Prophet will also act in the manner of the Impious one spoken of by Saint Paul, who through the power of Satan will accomplish “signs and lying wonders” (2 Thess. 2: 9). However, always stressing the character of the diabolical imitation of Christ’s true ministers, which defines the False Prophet, Saint John adds: “It will even make fire from Heaven fall to the earth, before everybody’s eyes.” (Apoc. 13: 13).

The False Prophet will be like Elijah, the prophet par excellence, who was capable, merely by his word, of making fire fall from Heaven to consume the messengers of King Ahaziah (2 Kings 1: 10-12). In the Apocalypse, it is “the Two Witnesses” who enjoy this privilege as ministers of God, who prophesy in His name and are vested with His power (Apoc 11: 5). We also recall an episode of the Gospel, where we see the Apostles James and John, the “Sons of Thunder”, who were badly received in a village of Samaria, suddenly ask Jesus:  “Lord, wilt Thou that we bid fire come down from Heaven and consume them?” (Lk. 9: 54-56). Saint John knew well that, like Elijah, the Apostles dispose of the power of judging in God’s name. But they can also misuse it:  “And Jesus rebuked them” as Saint Luke reports.

The Apocalypse tells us that the False Prophet will also have this power. Must it be understood in the material sense, or only in the spiritual sense? 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, which is the Word of God, 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.

To be concluded in Part II.

Luther’s Love

Among the extensive research data that I lost when my new Macbook pro died and had to be totally replaced was today’s post. Since the crash, I have attempted to reproduce the post but without the research, I have failed dismally. However, these seeming setbacks are always an opportunity – they give us  space for the Holy Ghost to work. It is such a blessing  to be brought to desperation and then suddenly discern the gentle breath of the Holy Spirit Who always renews us in hope and in love.

You see, I was approaching the “problem of Luther” from the wrong direction, as many do.  I had amassed quite a bit of documentation comparing Luther’s tendency to use vulgar attacks on his critics with the Bishop of Rome. Indeed, their propensity for personal attacks against anyone who opposes them, and their peculiar taste for the scatological and obscene is strikingly similar. But that article would have missed the most important point, and so today, we will try to get it right. Sources for this article are cited at end.

The Bergoglian Revolution

The simple point I wish to make is that anyone who claims to be a Christian, that is to say, an obedient  follower of Jesus Christ, true God and true Man, our Savior and Redeemer, should show us by example, his deep love for Jesus. Therefore, I ask, where is Martin Luther’s Love for Jesus?  Jesus taught us, not by a mere proclamation of faith but by His loving work, His  sacrificial death  in obedience to the Father.  Precisely where is it demonstrated that Martin Luther loved Our Lord Jesus Christ ?     Was it shown in his disobedient betrayal of his sacred vows of chastity, poverty and obedience?

Martin Luther defended  his disobedience by asserting that man was “justified by faith alone”, sola fides. To this astonishing statement, he added “sola scriptura”,  which compounded the illogic. The two propositions are the basis of Luther’s  violent hatred of the need for good works, that is for keeping the Commandments, and his assertion of a spurious “right” of each man to interpret scriptures according to his own understanding, no matter how ill-informed.  These assertions fly in the face of logic  as can be proved by anyone familiar with Sacred Scripture.

If scripture alone is correct, then sacred scripture itself must  state that proposition clearly and incontrovertibly.  But that is not the case. And sola fides flies in the face of everyday logic, for who among us does not grasp the simple fact that actions do matter. Study of Luther’s life shows that although Luther preached a very popular unbridled freedom of conscience, (much as Pope Francis does) he himself demanded absolute obedience to his will and condemned any who criticised him with a violent and obscene rage. He demanded that those who claimed to be his followers obey his will, but in a glaring contradiction, urged his followers, regarding Jesus Christ to “Be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe more boldly still.” No Christian should need to be reminded that sin hurts Our Lord Jesus Christ.  For Luther to assert such a  thing is proof of this man’s utter lack of love. His hateful teachings served to deprive Our Savior of the souls which He had redeemed at such great cost and to spread hatred of the Church which Christ established by the sacrifice of His Life.

Martin Luther’s  heresy is built upon upon the shifting sands of a purely personal interpretation of sacred scripture which was itself unscriptural;  and to remedy this,  he plagiarised  an existing  bible, from which he deleted passages he disagreed with and added one significant word, “alone”, in order to provide false witness for his heresy “Faith alone”.  Contrary to Luther’s assertions,  Our Lord demanded Love first and foremost:

John 15, 8-10: “In this is my Father glorified; that you bring forth very much fruit, and become my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you. Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; as I also have kept my Father’s commandments, and do abide in His love.”

1John, 3, 18-22:  “My little children, let us not love in word, nor in tongue, but in deed, and in truth.  In this we know that we are of the truth: and in His sight shall persuade our hearts.  For if our heart reprehend us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Dearly beloved, if our heart do not reprehend us, we have confidence towards God:  And whatsoever we shall ask, we shall receive of Him: because we keep His commandments, and do those things which are pleasing in His sight.”

Apocalypse of St. John, 12, 17: “And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

In the last, we see the proof that Luther served the Dragon, that is,  Satan, the Ancient Enemy of the Church, Bride of Christ. It was a great coup when the Enemy enlisted Martin Luther to his service. But this still does not answer the perennial question, How did Martin Luther, who fasted and scourged his body as a faithful monk, and taught the Catholic faith, fall so  low that even anti-Catholic protestant scholars now agree that he was “foul-mouthed and scurrilous”. (Protestant Bishop Berwick quoted by Msgr. O’Hare. ) Another Protestant writer,  Augustine Birrell,  wisely concluded,  “It is hard to reconcile coarseness and self-will, two leading notes of Luther’s character, with even rudimentary religion. To want to be your own pope is a sign of the heresiarch, not of the Christian.” (Quoted by Msgr. Patrick O’Hare, The Facts About Luther)

How did Luther fall so far, so fast? First and foremost, he relied solely on his own efforts, at first seeking to whip himself into spiritual perfection by severe spiritual disciplines such as harsh fasting and mortifications. But he failed to take the most essential action: he refused to spend quiet, prayerful time with Jesus. Nowhere is it noted that he spent time in devotions to Our Lady.  In his correspondence we read that he admitted having little time to offer Mass or even to say his Divine Office.  Many times, he admitted that he could not pray. You  cannot maintain the most basic relationships without loving actions, without sacrificing your time.  As St. Paul reminds us,   “If I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.” And we cannot have charity without “abiding with Him” Who is Charity.

Luther fell into heresy by neglecting the most basic  work, that of loving Our Lord, of serving Him. Consequently, he was unable to resist the temptations of Satan, temptations to assert himself against God’s will in order to attempt to have his raging lusts satisfied and assuage his tremendous guilt.  And we see the same thing all around us in the neo-pagan society which worships the flesh alone and thus leads to an insatiable appetite followed by the inevitable despair.

In commenting on one of the Psalms, he makes this horrible statement:

Patron of Heretics?

“Conceived in sorrow and corruption, the child sins even in his mother’s womb, when, as yet, a mere fetus, an impure mass of matter, before it becomes a human creature, it commits iniquity and incurs damnation. As he grows the innate element of corruption develops. Man has said to sin, ‘Thou art my father,’ and every act he performs is an offense against God; and to the worms, ‘You are my brothers,’ and he crawls like them in mire and corruption. He is a bad tree and cannot produce good fruit; a dung-hill and can only exhale foul odors. He is so thoroughly corrupted that it is absolutely impossible for him to produce good actions. Sin is his nature; he cannot help committing it. Man may do his best to be good, still his every action is unavoidably bad; he commits a sin as often as he draws his breath. (Consult Wittenb. III. 518)  (O’Hare, Patrick F.. The Facts About Luther (pp. 105-106). amazon.com. Kindle Edition.)

Luther maintained, “no action that was bad would bring the regenerate man under condemnation, because he was justified by faith; nor were his good actions, in even the slightest degree, meritorious, because they were done entirely through the grace given him by the Holy Ghost.”  [Thus, Luther denies any merit to our loving and obedient consent of the will towards God, Who is love.]

He further states that:

“The nature of man is so corrupted that it can never be regenerated and sin will remain in the soul, even of the just, forever. God’s all powerful grace does not cleanse from sin. The Almighty does not regard the sins of men. He covers them over with the merits of Christ and does not impute them to the sinner whose faith in the sufferings of the Redeemer is made manifest.” This is the effect of faith, which, he says, “tends to prevent cur filth from stinking before God.” (Walch XIII. 1480.) I will just note that Msgr O’Hare has sanitised the language of Luther considerably. The link in the second paragraph above, to “A German Hercules, the impact of scatology on the image of Martin Luther” has many examples, especially in the woodcuts commissioned by Luther, of his virulent and obscenely hateful language.

Martin Luther epitomises the result of neglecting our first and all encompassing need: to give Our Lord God not just faith alone, but adoration, hope and love, for as St. Paul teaches, “the greatest of these is charity”.

Now, we have seen how Luther fell, and we see around us the disastrous results of the fall, which are amply evident especially within the Bergoglian Church. What must our response be?  Oh now, you know that! In fact, I bet you know it much better than I! Please, dear readers, let’s live our Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary – Pray the Rosary, live the Consecration!

The New and Improved Jesus

More news from the Bergoglio Reformation, this time on the Pope’s new and improved Jesus.

In this morning’s post, Sandro Magister reported on  our Humble Pope® and his interviewing friend, Eugenio Scalfari who recently wrote of him  in “La Repubblica”. As you are aware, Pope Bergoglio likes to give off-the-cuff interviews to Scalfari, in which no records are kept except that which Scalfari  jots down after the fact, ostensibly relying on his 93 year old memory. Thus allowing for the convenient modernist ambiguity and deniability, although to date Pope Francis has not denied these interviews no matter how scandalous. The following quotes are from Magister.

Scalfari’s La Repubblica article was dated October 9, and in it Scalfari spoke of the “revolution” of this pontificate,

“Pope Francis has abolished the places where souls were supposed to go after death: hell, purgatory, heaven. The idea he holds is that souls dominated by evil and unrepentant cease to exist, while those that have been redeemed from evil will be taken up into beatitude, contemplating God.”

Observing immediately afterward:

“The universal judgment that is in the tradition of the Church therefore becomes devoid of meaning. It remains a simple pretext that has given rise to splendid paintings in the history of art. Nothing other than this.” (Sandro Magister)

* * *

Magister continues:

“There is in his preaching, however, something that tends toward a practical overshadowing of the final judgment and of the opposite destinies of blessed and damned.”

On Wednesday, October 11, at the general audience in Saint Peter’s Square, Francis said that such a judgment is not to be feared, because “at the end of our history there is the merciful Jesus,” and therefore “everything will be saved. Everything.”

In the text distributed to the journalists accredited to the Holy See, this last word, “everything,” was emphasized in boldface.”
