Pope Francis Recognises the Value of Rosaries – At Last!

In his initial response to the very credible charges made by Archbishop Viganò, Pope Francis promised, “I will not say a single word.” And yet he does, daily it seems, utter veiled invective against “the Great Accuser”, a not-so-subtle slur against his own accuser, Archbishop Viganò.

But on the feast day of Saint Michael the Archangel, September 29, Pope Francis outdid his own appalling hubris when he called for all the faithful to pray the Rosary daily through October, “asking the Holy Mother of God and St. Michael the Archangel” to protect the Church from attacks of the devil — the “Great Accuser” — and to make her members more aware “of the sins, errors, and abuses committed in the present and in the past.”

Lifesite News reported that the Pope asked the faithful  “to pray that the Holy Mother of God will place the Church under her protective mantle: to protect her from the attacks of the evil one, the great accuser, and at the same time make her ever more aware of the sins, errors, and abuses committed in the present and in the past, and committed to fighting without hesitation so that evil does not prevail.”

As I read that, it took a moment or two to recover my composure, but then I began to see the possibilities. Readers, we all know and have known ever since at least March 13, 2013 that satan is attacking the Church most effectively. And this unfortunate man is the exquisite proof of it.

Do you recall the Pope’s remarks in Apericida, Brazil, May, 2013:

“…When I was elected, I received a letter from one of these groups, and they said: “Your Holiness, we offer you this spiritual treasure: 3,525 rosaries.” Why don’t they say, ‘we pray for you, we ask…’, but this thing of counting…”

And now, he asks us for daily Rosaries! Whatever has prompted this, let’s make the most of it!

And so, let’s obey Pope Francis and pray the Rosary every day in the month of the Most Holy Rosary, asking Our Lady of the Rosary to, (in the words of Pope Francis himself), place the Church (and her Pontiff!) under her protective mantle, to protect them from the attacks of satan, and to make the Pope “ever more aware of the sins, errors, and abuses committed in the present and in the past, and committed to fighting without hesitation so that evil does not prevail.”

To really get into the spirit of it, I offer Pope Francis this penitential prayer, “Lamentation” in the hope that it will help him achieve the peace of true repentance and restore him to friendship with Our Lord Jesus Christ, the true Head of the Church.

Lamentation

A new penitential psalm for the Pope and episcopacy of the universal Church.

O all ye faithful! Weep over us, miserable souls given over to the dregs of impurity; we are to be lamented with a whole fountain of tears.

We mourn the noble souls, made in the image and likeness of God and united with the most precious blood of Christ, more glorious than many episcopal mansions and vast tax-free properties. Therefore we lament the fall of our “Excellent” and “Eminent” souls and the destruction of so many immortal souls of our trusting flock.

May our eyes fail from weeping, may they pour out abundant streams of tears, and may they water sad and mournful expressions with continuous crying. May our eyes spring forth tears with the prophet day and night, and may they not cease because the Church, the beautiful Bride of Christ has been crushed with the worst of blows, the holy Church has been cruelly injured with the dart of impurity by the enemy of the human race, and she is now seen lying rigid and swollen in the sulfurous embers of Gomorrah, pestilently corrupted by the poison of unnatural lust.

O Lord, have mercy on us! For we have become a lethal wound festering in the body of the church!

The iniquity of the hierarchy of the Church is made greater than the sin of Sodom, which was overthrown in a moment. Indeed, the evil of our consecrated souls surpasses the sin of the Sodomites, because it has spurned the sacred priesthood to which it is solemnly consecrated and is thereby vehemently reprimanded by its own knowledge of the divine law and its indifference to the profusion of graces offered by our loving and merciful Savior.

Have mercy on us, O Lord, for we are weak: heal us, O Lord, for our souls are troubled exceedingly: but Thou, O Lord, how long?

Consider our wretchedness, how much the darkness oppresses our souls. Take note how densely the fog of blindness envelops us. We have become the prey of demons, the plunder of the cruel, the booty of the impious. For we have turned a blind eye to the sins of our priests which we were obliged to correct and our silence has granted them permission to sin against innocent children entrusted to them.

Our sores are become putrified and corrupted, because of our foolishness and iniquities.

Our vice has been the death of bodies, the destruction of souls; it has polluted the flesh, extinguished the light of the intellect, and has expelled the Holy Ghost from the temple of the hearts of our victims, and has sought to remove the truth completely from the minds it has deceived.

We are become miserable, and bowed down even to the end: We walk in  sorrows all the day long. For our loins are filled with illusions; and there is no health in our flesh.

The plague of our iniquities has removed the foundation of faith, enervated the strength of hope, broken the tie of charity, and it has destroyed justice, undermined fortitude, banished temperance, and introduced every barbarity of vice.

We are ready for scourges: and our sorrows are continually before us. Therefore we will declare our iniquity: and will think on our sins.

We have fallen into this abyss of most extreme perdition, we deserve to be exiled from the heavenly homeland, separated from the body of Christ, confounded by the authority of the whole Church, condemned by the judgment of all of the holy Fathers, despised among men on earth, and rejected from the fellowship of heavenly citizenry.

Forsake us not, O Lord our God: do not Thou depart from us. Attend unto our help, O Lord, the God of our salvation. Turn away Thy face from our sins, and blot out all our iniquities.

Deeply aware of our unhappy state, we now come before Thee, Lord to implore Thy pardon. O Sweet Savior, look not on our sins but see our great need of Thy mercy! We trust in Thy mercy, O Lord, let us not be confounded forever!

By the help of Thy grace, we promise to repent of our past ingratitude every day and firmly resolve never to offend Thee again, and to avoid the occasions of sin. Through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary we will from henceforth make reparation for our sins, and the sins of the Church, and unfailingly beg the conversion of all poor sinners that the reign of Thy Sacred Heart through the Immaculate Heart of Mary be established throughout the Church and the world. Amen.

 

The above Lamentation was composed from excerpts from sacred scripture and from “The Book of Gomorrah” and other Catholic sources, notably, St. Peter Damian’s  “The Book of Gomorrah and St. Peter Damian’s Struggle Against Ecclesiastical Corruption (Kindle Locations 2117-2121). Ite ad Thomam Books and Media. Kindle Edition. (LINK)

 

Note: The Pope also requested the recitation of the venerable old prayer, which is, itself a kind of exorcism, “Sub tuum praesidium”. The text is: 

Sub tuum praesidium confugimus, Sancta Dei Genetrix. Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus, sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper, Virgo gloriosa et benedicta. Amen.

We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

 

There can be no greater danger than to lose one’s soul to satan, and so we pray for the Pope to be freed from the great deceiver, the “Father of Lies”. 

  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.

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

 

Roman Catholic Faithful, back in the fray!

GREAT NEWS!

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

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Media Contact: media@rcf.org

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Viva la Virgen de Guadalupe!”

God made you like this

 

Pope Francis explains what is happening and why.

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

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

“God made you like this”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculata.

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

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

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

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

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

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

I pray for you always, thank you for reading.

Grace Has Fled

Grace has indeed fled, as it did in the betrayal at Gethsemane, the Judas Hour. St. Peter, ever the man of action, struck Malchus, and in his zeal, would have led the disciples into yet another unsuccessful rebellion which would have ended the Church right at the beginning. But Jesus replaced the ear of the High Priest’s servant in order that the will of the Father might be obeyed. Peter, the first Pope, refused to follow Our Lord’s example of obedience, he fled and denied Our Lord. You see, that unpleasant word, obedience, simply will not vanish! For Jesus leads us to victory by obedience, through martyrdom if necessary as we noted in the conclusion of our last post.

In his prophetic book, “The Vatican”, Father Malachi Martin tells us through his protagonist, Cardinal Lansing:

“Grace is the first fruit of the Spirit (that) Christ sent into the world. If grace has fled, it is because we have made its bearer unwelcome. Now, like John of the Cross, we must work in our very souls to make it welcome again – not as a visitor merely, but as chief resident in this Church. … Most of all, We must pray. And we must do penance. And then pray some more. And do still more penance. … Unless  we do that, then in all our strategies and plans to outwit our enemies we will be just as they are. And if that happens, there will be no reasons any longer to fight them. They will have won, no matter who ends up with the power.”

In his semi-fictional bestseller,  “The Vatican”,  Fr. Martin reveals to us the way that the secret societies behind international banking gained control over the Church and nearly brought her to destruction.  The hero, Father Richard “Rico” Lansing, eventually becomes Cardinal, then in a dramatic turn of events, he is nominated for the papacy. He explains the “Bargain” which allows international freemasonry (described as the “International Assembly”) to control the Vatican finances.

Speaking to the Cardinals in conclave, Cardinal Lansing says,

“Our struggle is and always has been over one thing: power. Not the power of classes. Not ecclesiastical or social or political power. But the very same power St. Paul singled out at the very beginning of Rome’s history. The power of one brilliant fallen Archangel and his hordes. The power of darkness.

“And as that Apostle pointed out, our struggle with that power can be waged only with the weapons given to us by Christ, whose servants we are. Moral power is ours. Spiritual power is ours. That is all. And that is enough.”

Lansing then reviewed the papacies of the past five popes of his time, fictional counterparts of Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II. He continued,

“Marking the pontificates of each of those men was one fatal error, the use of their spiritual office to obtain leverage in the political, and diplomatic, and civic, and cultural worlds; and then using that leverage instead of the spiritual power and moral authority that was uniquely theirs.”

“And here, Your Eminences, we are at the root cause of our pain, our struggle, and our own deathly peril: our failure and the failure of our popes, to use the Church’s spiritual power to exercise its moral authority.”

Father Martin, through the character Cardinal Lansing then makes the point that eleven pontiffs were given the Bargain to sign and all did so. “Each of these pontiffs mortgaged the power of Christ’s Church to the power of Mammon.”  …

“This Bargain is about power. … Under the Holy Spirit of Christ, you are here to decide only one thing: on whom that same Spirit should confer that plenitude of divine power which Christ conferred on Peter the Apostle, and has conferred on all of Peter’s successors in this diocese of Rome. Power to forgive. Power to obligate. Power to teach. Power to decide the right and the wrong of all human affairs. Power for the peace of God. Power to war on God’s enemies. Power despite weakness. Power in the absence of holiness.”

“If any one of our popes, if any of us, or those who came before us, had used our power, Christ’s power in us, with half the zeal and dedication as the Assembly had used its power, the entire history of the Church and the world in the twentieth century would have been different. … Once and for all, then, let us refuse to … strike yet another bargain … with the world. A bargain by which we obligate ourselves to make the Church as like as possible to the world around it. … Because in this whole cosmos there can be no bargain, even a temporary one, between God and Mammon, … between God’s Church and God’s enemies.”

The Judas Hour

 

There is a great danger at this time, in seeking secular means to address spiritual problems, such as the deeply spiritual plague of unchaste, faithless clergy. Even the “good bishops” who are speaking out now have failed to use the spiritual means given by God through our Blessed Mother to renew and restore the faith. And now, the civil government which serves the forces of evil that war against the Church, are moving to investigate what the episcopacy has so stubbornly concealed these past decades, with the inevitable result of the Church being denuded of her facade of respectability, stripped of her wealth and worldly possessions, exactly as we have often recounted these past several years. As investigations continue, many innocent priests and Bishops will find themselves ensnared, for satan never neglects to use every crisis for his own advantage. There will be much suffering.

New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Missouri, and soon the rest of the states will follow. We alluded to this in “Shoring up the ruins”, for it is quite clear that the Bergoglian Vatican has been preparing for this. It is not merely an American problem, it is to sweep throughout the world and leave the Chuch in ruins.

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)

Let’s take a moment to remind ourselves of a few things we have covered earlier.

  • The message of Fatima was a warning – the Third Part of the Secret, the Spiritual Chastisement, foretold an apostate pope and a massive falling away from the faith.
  • Both Paul VI and Benedict XVI spoke of the Church becoming a miniscule percent of humanity.
  • Many approved revelations foretell of a plague of priests who betray their vocations.
  • The material Chastisement including the perpetual and ever escalating wars, will continue until her demands are fulfilled.
  • Our Lady of Fatima warned that if God’s requests (They were His requests, she was the messenger) were not observed, Russia would spread her errors over all the world.
  • Sister Lucia confirmed that if Our Lady’s request was not heeded Russia would rule America, as well.

From those points, we can draw some conclusions.

  • We have arrived at the stage of the Apostate Pope and a massive defection from the faith.
  • We have not quite reached the stage where the Church becomes nearly extinct, but are on the brink of it.
  • There is much misunderstanding on the last two points on Russia.That is because it is essential to the satanic forces that we be cast into confusion on this vital subject.
  • The errors of Russia did not die when the U.S.S.R. broke up. Although this is denied by many respected traditional Catholics, communism (satanic marxism/leninism) did not ever die and will not die until it is crushed by the Blessed Virgin, to whom it has been given. It merely rebranded and continued to permeate every aspect of western society. Socialism, marxism, scientific materialism, humanism, and liberation theology, no matter the label, the same diabolical force is at work.  In any form, it is satanic, anti-life and anti-Christ in all its aspects.
  • Sister Lucia’s prophecy about Russia and the United States of America has come true as will be apparent within the year, possibly.

Consider that what we see now in the clergy sex abuse scandals was intended all along. In an earlier article, we reported that  the Bergoglian Vatican has been working to shelter the wealth of dioceses all over the world in anticipation of the coming attacks on Church properties and assets. The governments of many countries have long desired to strip her riches from the Church and now their self-righteous anger gives the excuse they wished for. The diabolical forces in Spain come to mind, but their number is legion.

As we have discussed, the hammer of islam may well be just the perfect tool to destroy the surviving monuments of Christianity in Europe and elsewhere. Perhaps soon, the devastation of many cities in Europe as was foretold in the prophecies.

Pope Francis will stand his ground, insisting that he is “by the will of Christ Himself – the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful”. And that he enjoys, “supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church”. He believes that no one can stop him. He may be right, for it seems that it is the Judas hour and the power of darkness. 

Is there any Bishop, Archbishop or Cardinal calling for the faithful to follow his lead in returning to the true message of Fatima?  Has anyone called for the requested First Saturdays of Reparation? Has any Bishop announced he will promote in his diocese true devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? Sister Lucia explained what is needed in 1957: devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Most Holy Mother, consists in considering Her as the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon, and as the certain door by which we are to enter Heaven.”

Which Bishop will come forward and announce that henceforth, he will retire his coat of arms and replace it with the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and will command that every church and chapel in his see enthrone these Sacred Hearts, and display the same banners while proclaiming the devotion of total consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Is there any Bishop who will lead his diocese in devotion to the Immaculate Heart, personally promote her rosaries of reparation, her brown scapular? Who will personally lead the children to Our Lady? Who will cast from his diocese sex education that corrupts their tender souls?

Appointing committees and speaking in vague terms about fasting and prayers is really not the answer. Name what it is that you are repenting of! Name the sins! Publicly repent of them!

If any Bishop asserts he intends to heal his diocese of these ills, but does not obey the plan offered by heaven, he is persisting in disobedience and therefore his actions will fail, and in most cases, merely allow the ancient enemy to gain strength. Through the long and complex history of the Church, as the faith began to fail, God sent messengers to call His children to repentance, reparation and return to obedience in the faith. Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Immaculate Mother have offered us the means and the Church has spurned it.

To continue to spurn the message of Fatima is to provoke the justice of God. We do this at great peril to our immortal souls.

Today, we close with a quote from Apocalypse, Chapter 6.

” . . . when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord (holy and true) dost Thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

And white robes were given to every one of them one; and it was said to them, that they should rest for a little time, till their fellow servants, and their brethren, who are to be slain, even as they, should be filled up. And I saw, when he had opened the sixth seal, and behold there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair: and the whole moon became as blood: And the stars from heaven fell upon the earth, as the fig tree casteth its green figs when it is shaken by a great wind:

And the heaven departed as a book folded up: and every mountain, and the islands were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and tribunes, and the rich, and the strong, and every bondman, and every freeman, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of mountains:

And they say to the mountains and the rocks: Fall upon us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of their wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?

Please return to the message of Fatima, and encourage others to do so. It is not an insignificant thing for us to stand firm, offering our widow’s mite of small penances with all the love and sorrow of our repentent hearts. For God sees what is hidden, and Our Lady’s Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart is with us always, and will lead us safely to the heaven of His love forever. The rest is dross and will soon pass away.

  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!

The Errors of Russia or the Error of Our Lady?

Today, I only have the time for a very brief note to perhaps help clarify my previous post. The reason I posted on palliative care is that it is part and parcel of the homoheresy which has been the major tool used by the Enemy to destroy the Church. Of course, the Church will not be utterly destroyed, because she is the work of God.

Satan hates human life. He hates the God-Man who assumed human flesh and blood of the ever-Virgin Mary. Finally, he hates that Virgin Mother with an unquenchable hatred. Hatred, deceit, violence, terror, but coupled with lust, greed, pride, narcissism and the most violent anger – these are his tools in trade. We can easily see how he has used all this as he tirelessly works to bring down the Church, the Bride of Christ for whom Christ suffered and died and rose again.

It is a marvelous thing to see how the Enemy’s servants have transformed the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church into a sewer of depravity, deceit, and lust for death. Under Pope Francis, the once noble Pontifical Academy for Life has been transformed and behind its deceitful facade it is now a United Nations asset for pushing contraception, sterilization, abortion, and euthanasia; all under benign euphemisms, such as sustainable growth and palliative care.

But the battle began long ago. The ground was prepared for palliative care by such diverse trends as the Hospice Movement, the Medicare transition to DRG’s (Diagnostic Related Groups), and organ transplantation. The sex education curriculum was the effective tool for the homosexualization of society, just as contraception was the wedge to force abortion as “pro-choice”, for if a woman has the right to “choose” whether or not her sexual activity will bear fruit, it logically follows that she would have the “right” to end any unwelcome life that the true Author of Life might dare to impose upon her.

And in this, the voice of Randy Engel has been the strongest in alerting us to the dangers of sex education, organ transplantation. and the homosexualization of the clergy. However, her efforts were often so opposed, especially by those within the Church, that even today, very few Catholics are aware of it.

There was such a massive amount of money to be made, by organ transplantation, that the seemingly righteous push to “give the gift of life”, won out. Many Catholic organ donors today are unaware that a living person has their organs removed, often while they are still quite painfully awake but unable to respond, in order for the “gift of life” to be successful.  This ghastly scenario occurs more and more often today. Make no mistake, organ transplantation is a huge part of the anti-life movement. Are you an organ donor?

Palliative care, death with dignity, compassionate care are all euphemisms for forcing the end of life to meet budgetary goals and eliminate the high costs of care for those deemed non-productive. The satanic goal here is to so “palliate” the dying person’s will with sedatives that a holy death is impossible. Instead of being able to perform the necessary work of life review, repentance and reparation in preparation for the greatest step we ever make – into eternity – we exit our lives in a drugged stupor, like an addict in an alley. It is deeply unfortunate and satan must be very pleased.

Life, the precious gift of our loving Father, redeemed for us by the Son, and sustained by the Holy Spirit, is under attack as never before. Destroying the Church, the very Bride of Christ is of the utmost importance to Satan, because the Church is Christ’s own creation, given to us at the cost of His blood to nurture our souls and birth us into eternity.

I will tell you something else you may not wish to hear, but nevertheless should note well: Our Lady of the Rosary warned us over a century ago that “the errors of Russia” would spread throughout the world and cause great harm if we failed to listen to her. Today, that message is largely ignored, especially by those who have commandeered the Barque of Peter and are determined to wreck it.  Consumed by unnatural lusts and a rapacious greed for luxuries and power, they have allied themselves to the globalist agenda.

The dark force behind all this is the same ancient enemy that is the “errors of Russia”, that is satanic marxism, also known as: communism, socialism, globalism, scientific materialism, marxist dialectics, and even liberation theology. There are many other manifestations as satan never tires of his deceits; he offers a flavor for every taste.

Many years ago, by a strange coincidence, just before my first surviving child was born and right at the end of the Second Vatican Council, I had occasion to meet a man who had a very strong impact on me although we only met once and spoke for just a couple of hours. I shall call him Viktor. He had been invited to speak to us about life in what were then known as the “Countries behind the Iron Curtain”. The little store-front our study group met in was shared by a coalition of patriotic, anti-communist societies. People expected him to tell us how great America is and how we were heroically fighting communism “behind the iron curtain”.

However, Viktor did no such thing. In fact he explained very clearly, how American interests had financed the Russian Communist revolution and had actually sustained Stalin, whose bloodbath would have been self-limiting but for the generosity of the bankers  with an endless supply of American money to keep the bloody despot in power.

He told a very unhappy audience that the United States of America was a nation of dupes, supporting marxist tyranny all over the world. The usually polite and appreciative audience was clearly upset and after the break, offered polite excuses and did not return for the last half of the talk. But Viktor and I remained after the place closed and spoke of his experiences in Soviet controlled countries, especially Ukraine and Poland. He explained that the marxists already (circa 1965) had a nearly complete control of western education, media and government on national levels, but not yet on the local level. He was very blunt in stating that America would succumb to marxism willingly, as the lesser evil.

I was dead set against his opinions, but too impressed with his obvious sincerity to offer much resistance. When my ride came to pick me up, I watched him walk away, and felt my heart sink within me. I had a foreboding that he might be right, but everything I believed in was revolted at the thought. Over the years, many, many times, I have begun to notice events that proved his point. And today it is very obvious. Look at our pitiful young people! Tragic!

Dear readers, Our Lady of Fatima did not err, nor was Sister Lucia wrong when she told Dr. Walsh that Russia would rule in America if she were not first consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. If you would, just keep this warning in mind, and pray and watch. Note the signs. If what I have said is true, it will soon be apparent.

Two points I wish to make in closing. This disgusting scenario playing out in the Church; two priests having oral sex in broad daylight in Miami, Florida, a priest in Latvia purchasing a human-trafficked diabled woman in order to violently rape and abuse her, just prior to the Pope’s visit to Latvia. – This is all the lead-up to the civil authorities of the nations stepping in to “save the citizenry” from the vile Catholic Church. I have actually seen comboxes on Catholic sites, calling for RICO charges against Catholic Churches. Be careful what you ask for!

This will be the long-awaited time when Paul VI’s warning – and Benedict’s too, about the church becoming infinitessimally small will be fulfilled. Perhaps we shall see the apocalyptic horsemen rise up to cleanse the world of the locusts, those effeminate heretics that arose from Pope Paul’s smoke of satan in the very sanctuary of the Church. many of our posts here have spoken of just these points.

As remarked in the Book of Destiny, once before, the scourge of arianism along with other lesser heresies, was largely eliminated by the invading barbarian hordes, after which the Church sprang up anew just as new growth arises after the forest has been chastened by a wildfire.

As for us, remember always,

“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).

I was not as brief as I hoped. Forgive me and please, renew your efforts – pray the Rosary, so many souls depend on us!

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

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

The Work of the Devil

 

“Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed: nor hidden, that shall not be known. For whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in the light: and that which you have spoken in the ear in the chambers, shall be preached on the housetops.(Luke 12, 1-3)

 

We remarked in our last post that it would appear that Pope Francis was well aware of the extent of the discontent in the Church and yet was more intent on protecting the wealth of the Church than the souls of the faithful. Therefore, the crisis will intensify, because the revelations begun by Archbishop Viganò will be buttressed  by much more testimony. There is a very real possibility that the long silent, although never publically acknowledged schism may become official. The question now will be for the individual Bishops to decide where they will stand. We are all aware of the familiar prophecy of Our Lady of Akita,

“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops.” Indeed, that moment is upon us.

So what are we to glean from all this? We might consider some prophecies.

“75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.”

In the auditory portion of the well-known prophecy of Pope Leo XIII, you will recall Jesus acceded to Satan’s request for “75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.” This indicated the removal of “what withholds” as also prophesied and explained by Cardinal Manning. Quoting St. Paul, in 2 Thess, Ch 2, v 6:

“And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh: only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way, …Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity:”

Cardinal Manning goes on to note,

“The authority, then, from which the revolt is to take place is that of the kingdom of God on earth, prophesied by Daniel as the kingdom which the God of heaven should set up after the four kingdoms should be destroyed by the stone cut out without hands, which became a great mountain and filled the whole earth; or, in other words, the one and universal Church, founded by our Divine Lord, and spread by His Apostles throughout the world.” (See our previous posts on Cardinal Manning’s prophecy.)

Therefore, it refers to the strength of the Holy Catholic Church, in particular of the Vicar of Christ, the Pope. It is the authority of the Church which has been “taken out of the way”, that is to say, the Popes following the Second Vatican Council undermined their own papal authority, as well as the authority of the church, by collegiality and false ecumenism. The Popes themselves in their disobedience of the requests of the true Head of the Church, Jesus Christ, through His most Blessed Mother, have removed themselves as Guardians of the faith, as true shepherds of the flock of Christ.

The second, visual portion of Pope Leo’s revelation was the vision of a multitude of demons converging on the Eternal City, which I must confess that I cannot visualize without thinking of the cocaine fueled sodomites carousing at Capozzi’s “gay soirée”. Therefore I see it as being fulfilled in this present time. However, some apply it to the passage in the Apocalypse, Chapter 20, v 8: “And they came upon the breadth of the earth, and encompassed the camp of the saints, and the beloved city.” Despite their assertions, Chapter 20 does not refer to these times but to the time after the period of peace. We are in the time of locusts, of the smoke of satan, when the Bergoglian Church is persecuting the Church from within. That quote refers to the attack of the nations of the world led by the Antichrist against the “camp of the saints”, that is, the Church, from without, as in the final battle.

More correctly: We are now in the period where Christ has allowed the Popes the choice of obeying Our Lady in her requests at Fatima, or of disobeying. If they choose to disobey, as they have, then it follows that the disobedient Popes themselves weaken their authority and thus weaken the power of the Church, allowing the entrance into the Church of the most pernicious errors in doctrine and in the practice of the faith. It was Popes John and Paul that opened the Church to the enemy now within, and Pope John Paul II who presided over the massive infiltration of the Church by homoheretics in the seminaries, unversities and particularly, advancing in the episcopacy.

The demons swarming over the Vatican in Pope Leo’s vision are those that have been welcomed in by those within the Vatican, even up to the very top echelon, who have welcomed the ancient enemy by their apostasy from the faith and their sacrilegious sexual perversions, offering the sacred mysteries with filthy hands and hearts, whited sepulchres filled with all manner of indecency and corruption and despised even by the devils they serve.

For this, we quote from Pope Leo XIII’s Prayer to St. Michael:

This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity. These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions (Lam 3:15). In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is Wisdom, has thus allowed the evil to manifest itself so that it may be driven forth, as evil is always driven forth, by fasting, penance, and prayer, and ultimately and most decisively, by the blood of martyrs, which renews and vivifies the faith. For make no mistake, it will come to pass, even as the Holy Ghost revealed to St. John:

“And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord (holy and true) dost thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given to every one of them one; and it was said to them, that they should rest for a little time, till their fellow servants, and their brethren, who are to be slain, even as they, should be filled up.” (Apoc. 6, 9-11)

The blood of the martyrs cries out for justice; in no other way can reparation be made now, I fear.

What is our role in all this? We must stand firm in the true faith and with those priests and bishops who have never betrayed the Bride of Christ. At a minimum, we must recognise the true evil, and pray for those who are brave enough to confront it, and console Our Lord Who is so much offended. In addition, we must give the fullest consent of our will to obeying Our Lady of the Rosary in her Fatima  requests. And we bear in mind that we are, after all, our brother’s keeper. We can not turn from this responsibility to pray and sacrifice for sinners, especially our hierarchy and priests.

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

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

  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!

Locusts and Horsemen

 

From Lifesite News this morning, we see that there is credible information that it was our humble Pontiff himself who insisted that Msgr. Luigi Capozzi, assistant to Cardinal Cocopalmerio be given the prestigious apartment in which he gave his drug and sex orgies. A little over a year ago, we wrote extensively on this in a series of articles which referred back to Chapter 9 of the Apocalypse and tracing the current plague of infestation to Paul VI. I will not quote the extensive references here but refer you to the links at the end of this article.

For those readers who are interested in placing these most recent scandals in the Bergoglian Vatican within the context of the Apocalypse , I urge you to read the earlier posts, which are linked below. In them you will come to see the sacred revelations unfold and the connections between the Vatican Banking scandals,  the Lavender Mafia and the satanic infestation of the Vatican.

In one article, I wrote,

And now, under Pope Francis, we see the homosexual corruption and the financial corruption nicely tied together in one tidy little pile under the Pope’s dear friend Monsignor Battista Ricca, whom he appointed to the Vatican Bank.

Three Gay blades, making a mess!

 

And now, the latest scandal, for which we have to thank his Eminence Cardinal Cocopalmerio and his secretary,  Msgr. Luigi Capozzi, but ultimately Pope Francis, who promotes and sustains all the corruption.  Although Capozzi was arrested by the Vatican police some  two months ago, when they found him so high on cocaine that he had to be treated at a Vatican clinic, and although the homosexual orgy which he was hosting took place in what was officially space belonging to Cardinal Cocopalmerio, not one statement condemning this disgusting behavior has been made by the Bergoglian Vatican. It is the silence of a rotting corpse. ( . . . )

And today, we see that this pope, who vowed “transparency” and proclaimed his intention to clear up corruption, is continuing his stubborn silence and is actually fostering it by continuing to stand by his corrupt choices. Now that one brave Monsignor has risked his life and his reputation in order to begin to expose the extent of the corruption, we should all expect the inevitable mud-slinging which results from any attack on the perverted narcissists roosting in the Vatican. And even some corrupt prelates, who are themselves complicit in similar tolerance for the Lavender liturgies infesting their own dioceses, will appear to support the reform.

But one of the gravest threats is that proposed by the “useful idiots” (a marxist term of endearment for foolish people who abet their plans) who cry out for the government to clear out the church. That will harm the church further and the result will be that which Paul VI (who should know!) foretold:

“Yes, the smoke of Satan is in the sanctuary. Due to the presence of Satan, Catholics are destined to become an infinitesimally small part of humanity.”

Pope Francis has already taken some measures to protect Church wealth and property as we wrote in two articles in May this year, “Shoring Up the Ruins?” and Shoring Up the Ruins, once more“. From them:

Nota Bene:

A special office has been set aside in the Vatican Bank, Institute for Works of Religion. It begs the question, what does the Vatican expect to happen?

Note that the Guidelines were set up this past February, about the time that the cover was being blown off the Chilean scandal and the Pope himself was becoming inextricably entangled in the scandal. Note also that several close to the pope have become implicated in this scandal or others, for instance, unrepentant Cardinal Errazuriz and Cardinal Maradiaga. Add to this Cocopalmerio’s problems and the homoerotic “artwork” of Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia and you see that there has developed an undeniable stench in this papacy.

The Pope’s  “Testament”, far from being a spiritual testament similar to that of St. Paul as Pope Francis claims,  is a thinly veiled attempt to prevent the seizure of finances and properties in the event of legal judgements against the numerous prelates who are to be convicted. There may be much more scandal coming to light and it appears that the Vatican considers that the Pope himself may not be immune.

It’s fascinating to see how  quickly and decisively the Vatican can act when its finances and properties are threatened. Quite unlike its response when souls are being destroyed.

As St. Hildegard said, Wretches that we are, who shall deliver us?

Readers, I took that last quote from our post on St. Hildegard, “The Figure of a Woman”. In that post, we closed with the explanation:

“The quote above refers to the filth of the Lavender/St. Gallen faction which now occupies the Church. Once the monstrous head is disposed of by Divine intervention, all the corruption will be revealed. Those who survive, that is, the few faithful remaining at that time, will be awestruck at the extent of the evil when at last the entire truth becomes known. But even though it will be “late”, the Immaculate Mother of God will prevail and the Church will be restored. Bergoglio, Kasper, Danneels, all will go the way of past evils; what is Good, True, and Beautiful shall prevail.”

If you look a bit closer, to what I have written above, you will note several things:

Unless the faithful are led by the light and grace of God, through the Immaculata, we will miss this precious opportunity to cleanse the Church. For the evil can not be driven out by earthly wisdom, worldly tactics, which ignore God, for that mistaken approach is what led the popes into the mess they are in. We have written extensively about the corruption of the Vatican through its finances, that is, ignoring the spiritual power given to it by Christ, the true Head of the Church and instead relying on political and financial arrangements to advance its hegemony through worldly means.

The second thing is very subtle and requires a further post to elucidate, but as the faithful ignore the means given by God to cleanse the Church, that is recourse to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and her Message of Fatima, God in His providence will step in and cleanse the Church in His time honored way, as we related in the “Sixth Trumpet Update 2018”. 

In that post, we wrote:

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).

And so we close for another day.

Satan and the Priesthood

As long-time readers know, we have posted on the dangers to the sacred priesthood since the inception of this blog several years ago, stressing the connection between the message of Fatima and the spread of heresy, apostasy and the corruption of the sacred priesthood.

I had hoped that the fact that Archbishop Viganò issued his testimonial on the traditional (true) Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary would be duly noted and celebrated as the victory of the Immaculata which it is. Even though Abp. Viganò referred to the date as the Queenship of Mary, that is the term assigned by the Novus Ordo church to replace that of the title intended by Pope Pius XII. Since 1960, the post-conciliar church has been determined to supplant and minimise devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and their efforts seem to be bearing fruit in the lack of honor to the Immaculata in her latest victory.

For make no mistake, it is only through true and total devotion to the Immaculate  Heart of Mary that the evils of doctrinal and moral dissolution will be purged from the Bride of Christ. Those who congratulate themselves that their efforts are bearing fruit at last will soon see something they did not at all anticipate. Soon, God willing, we will discuss this further. But for now, we offer, from 2015:

An essential part of the message of Fatima is the warning of the corruption of the priesthood. Sister Lúcia spoke of this to Father Agustin Fuentes:

“Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil knows what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls. Thus, the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God, because in this way, the devil will succeed in leaving souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize them.

That which afflicts the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus is the fall of religious and priestly souls. The devil knows that religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag innumerable souls to Hell … The devil wishes to take possession of consecrated souls. He tries to corrupt them in order to lull to sleep the souls of laypeople and thereby lead them to final impenitence.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima to Father Agustin Fuentes, December, 1957)

In an earlier article, we quoted Pope Benedict’s address to the Curia in 2010 where he in turn, quoted from St. Hildegard von Bingen. However, although I have been unable to obtain that letter of hers wherein she related her vision of the Church, I have recently come across another version of the same vision in Volume 2 of “The Life and Revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich  by Rev. Carl Schmoger, C.SS.R. (TAN). This more detailed rendering of St. Hildegard’s vision provides significant insight, so we include it here. From pages 98-101:

“Confined to my bed by sickness, I had in the year of the Lord, 1170, a beautiful vision of a Lady more lovely and attractive than human mind can paint. Her form reached from earth to sky, her countenance shone with splendor, her eyes were fixed on heaven. She wore a shining robe of white silk and a mantle embroidered with precious stones, emeralds, sapphires, pearls and flowers of gold; on her feet were shoes of onyx. But her face was soiled with ashes, her robe was torn on the right side, her mantle was stained, her shoes were covered with mud. In a clear, plaintive voice she cried: “Hear O ye heavens! My face is disfigured! – Be afflicted, O earth, for my vesture is rent! – And thou, O abyss, tremble, for my shoes are soiled! The foxes have holes and the birds have nests, but I, I have none to assist or console me, I have no support on which to lean! – I was hidden in the bosom of the Father until the Son of Man, conceived and born of a Virgin, shed His blood in which He espoused me and endowed me with His grace, that in the pure regeneration of spirit and water, I might bring forth those anew whom the serpent’s venom had infected.

But my nurses, the priests who should have preserved my countenance resplendent as the aurora, my robe brilliant as the lightning flash, my mantle glittering as precious stones, my shoes white as snow, have sprinkled my face with ashes, have torn my robe, soiled my mantle, and stained my shoes. They who should have adorned me have allowed me to perish.  They sully my countenance when they handle and eat my Bridegroom’s Flesh and Blood in spite of the impurity of their life, their fornications, their adulteries, and their rapacity in selling and buying, a thing unlawful to them. Yes, they cover His Flesh and Blood with opprobrium. It is like casting a new born babe to swine.

As man became flesh and blood at the very instant that God formed him from the slime of the earth and breathed into him the breath of life, so the same power of God, at the words of the priest, changes the offering of bread, wine and water upon the altar into the true Flesh and true Blood of Christ, my Spouse; which, however, on account of the blindness occasioned by Adam’s fall, man cannot see with his corporal eyes. The wounds of my Spouse remain fresh and open, as long as those of sinful man are not closed. They are outraged by those priests who, instead of preserving me pure and serving me in holiness, seek with insatiable avidity to heap up riches and benefice on benefice. They tear my vesture by their infidelity to the law, to the Gospel, to the priesthood. They stain my mantle by their neglect of the precepts laid down for them, instead of fulfilling them joyfully and perfectly by continence like unto the beauty of the emerald, by alms-giving like unto the sapphire, and by the practice of all other good works which honor God as so many precious stones. They soil my shoes by walking not in the right path, the rough and difficult path of justice, and by failing to give good example to their inferiors; but in my shoes I perceive the hidden light of truth among a few.

The false priests deceive themselves; they crave the honor attached to their functions while dreading the trouble. But it is impossible for them to have one without the other, since to no one who has not labored will wages be given. When God’s grace touches a man, it urges him to labor for the reward. God now punishes man by raining evils upon him. He covers the earth with them as with a mist until its verdure disappears and it is clothed with darkness. But the abyss will tremble when He will come in His wrath, making heaven and earth the instruments of His vengeance and man’s destruction.

Arrogant princes and nations will rise up against you, O ye priests who have hitherto neglected me! They will drive you forth, they will rob you of your wealth, because you have neglected your sacred ministry. They will cry: “Cast out of the church these adulterers, these robbers full of iniquity!” In so doing, they think they render God a service, saying you have polluted His Church; therefore the Scriptures say, “Why have the nations raged and the people devised vain things?” By God’s permission the nations will rise up against you; they will have vain thoughts of you; they will esteem as naught your priestly dignity and consecration. The princes of the earth will unite to cast you down. Your rulers will drive you from their territories, since your crimes have driven the innocent Lamb far from you.

And I heard a voice from heaven saying: “This vision represents the Church – wherefore, O daughter of man, who dost see these things and hear these lamentations, announce it to the priests who have been instituted and ordained to guide and instruct the people, for to them in the person of the apostles it has been said: “Go into the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” When God created man, He delineated in him every creature, as are written upon a scrap of parchment the seasons and numbers of a whole year; therefore it was that God named man “every creature”.

And I, poor woman, saw again a drawn sword floating in the air, one edge toward heaven, the other toward the earth. And it was raised above a spiritual race that the prophet foresaw when he exclaimed in astonishment: “Who are these, that fly as clouds, and as doves to their windows?”  (Isaiah 1x.8); for they who are raised above the earth, separated from ordinary men, they who should live holily, showing forth in their actions the  simplicity of doves, are evil in their works and manners. And I saw the sword strike the priestly race in many places as Jerusalem was destroyed after the Savior’s Passion; and I saw also, that in the time of tribulation God will spare many pure and upright priests who fear Him, as He said to Elias that he had left in Israel a thousand men who had not bent the knee to Baal. May the inextinguishable fire of the Holy Spirit be enkindled in you to convert you to better things!”

There is much to think about in this vision of St. Hildegard’s. It is axiomatic in applying the revelations of Scriptures and Saints that “What has been will be again”. And thus, Pope Benedict obviously was correct in offering the Curia – and the priests of the Church – the prophecies of St. Hildegard as relevant to our times. Note that Pope Benedict canonised Saint Hildegard – who was already traditionally deemed a saint, thus pointing to the relevance of her prophesies. Please consider this prayerfully, for the testimony of Abp. Viganò bears witness to the prophecies we have been speaking of.

The gist of the above vision appears to substantiate Sister Lucia’s contention that Satan is especially targeting priests to corrupt them and by that corruption, dragging countless numbers of Catholics to hell. In scripture, very often, sins of impurity of the flesh are linked with sins of impurity in belief and worship. Thus adultery and fornications and other foul sins can also apply to heresy and apostasy from the faith. And we see now how closely the sins of sodomy, adultery and fornication are linked. All are based in narcissism and an arrogant determination at self-aggrandisement. Once a poor sinner is caught up in this morass, he becomes blind and maimed and covered with putrescence, although unable, in his spiritual blindness, to see what is obvious to those who retain the clear vision of faith and the light of grace.  Therefore it is essential for those who retain the faith to offer penance and prayers for the relief of these sinners.

We must know that if we have the faith, it is through no great merit of our own, but through the ineffable mercy of God, and this faith is not given us for our sole comfort but entrusted to us that we help others repent, be converted and saved. So many arrogantly “consider themselves Catholics” without knowing their faith. They follow blindly after blinded Churchmen, themselves steeped in corruption. The poor prelates today, stuck on stupid, as it were, cannot help themselves. Pope Francis cannot see what a ridiculous caricature he has made of the papacy; he needs our prayers, our penances on his behalf.

The Church offers us many stellar examples of saints who generously suffered to bring forth an increase in sanctity for poor sinners. St. Hildegard, St. Catherine Siena, St. Jean Vianney, St. Padre Pio, Anna Emmerich and so many more inspire us. Although we may not rise to their heroism,  we must offer everything, each silly little detail of our daily trials and burdens, for the repentance and conversion of sinners, especially those among our clergy.

“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly, and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the same Son Jesus Christ present in all the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages, and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. Through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.” (The Prayer of the Archangel Michael of Fatima)

Please prepare to renew your total consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on her next great feast day, that of her Nativity, September 9! And let us thank her every day for inspiring and strengthening Archbishop Viganò to proclaim the truth of the wicked infestation in the Church, even including this wicked man presuming to be the Vicar of Christ on earth.

There has never been a better time to  Pray the Rosary with confidence and joy!

  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, defend our priests.

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

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

Pope Francis Must Resign

Pope Francis must be the first to set a good example for cardinals and bishops who covered up McCarrick’s abuses and resign along with all of them.

 

I’ve added an update at the end of the article. Please note the significance: Abp. Vigano issued this Testimony on the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

When I arose this morning at 3 a.m., a reader had texted me the link to the testimony of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò,  the former apostolic nuncio to the United States which has been made public thanks to Lifesite News and writer Diane Mantagna’s translation. Please refer to the Lifesite News article for the complete story. That link is HERE.

Archbishop Viganò stated that “The main reason why I am revealing this news now is because of the tragic situation of the Church, which can be repaired only by the full truth, just as she has been gravely injured by the abuses and coverups. I do this to stop the suffering of the victims and to prevent new victims, and to protect the Church: only the truth can make her free.” Viganò said the second reason he chose to write his testimony is “to discharge my conscience before God of my responsibilities as bishop of the universal Church. I am an old man and I want to present myself to God with clean conscience.”

I have taken the liberty of emphasizing pertinent sections as it is lengthy.

TESTIMONY

by
His Excellency Carlo Maria Viganò Titular Archbishop of Ulpiana Apostolic Nuncio

In this tragic moment for the Church in various parts of the world — the United States, Chile, Honduras, Australia, etc. — bishops have a very grave responsibility. I am thinking in particular of the United States of America, where I was sent as Apostolic Nuncio by Pope Benedict XVI on October 19, 2011, the memorial feast of the First North American Martyrs. The Bishops of the United States are called, and I with them, to follow the example of these first martyrs who brought the Gospel to the lands of America, to be credible witnesses of the immeasurable love of Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Bishops and priests, abusing their authority, have committed horrendous crimes to the detriment of their faithful, minors, innocent victims, and young men eager to offer their lives to the Church, or by their silence have not prevented that such crimes continue to be perpetrated.

To restore the beauty of holiness to the face of the Bride of Christ, which is terribly disfigured by so many abominable crimes, and if we truly want to free the Church from the fetid swamp into which she has fallen, we must have the courage to tear down the culture of secrecy and publicly confess the truths we have kept hidden. We must tear down the conspiracy of silence with which bishops and priests have protected themselves at the expense of their faithful, a conspiracy of silence that in the eyes of the world risks making the Church look like a sect, a conspiracy of silence not so dissimilar from the one that prevails in the mafia. “Whatever you have said in the dark … shall be proclaimed from the housetops” (Lk. 12:3).
