SSPX Response to the Pan-Amazon Synod

This just in:

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

Menzingen, October 28, 2019

On the feast of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles

Dear Members of the Society,

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

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

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

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

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

Don Davide Pagliarani

Superior General

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

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

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

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

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

Preparing for the Synod of Darkness, Part I

 

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

 

From The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE APOSTOLIC PREACHING

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

“But there were false prophets also among the people, just as among you there will be lying teachers who will bring in destructive sects. They even disown the Lord Who bought them, thus bringing upon themselves swift destruction.” (2 Pet. 2: 1)

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

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

La Salette, thoughts on the symbols

 

Today, just a brief discussion on the symbols we see in the Vision of La Salette and their possible meaning to us now.

A reader has just asked me about the depiction of Our Lady of La Salette, “She appears weeping profusely, and dressed in a distinctive manner, is there some special meaning behind this?”  I will venture a few impressions, but dear readers, please feel free to offer your own opinions or those of others.

The first impression, regarding her tears is that she is sorrowing because of the betrayal of her children, and this is especially poignant to her in her most beloved priests. Although this was not as obvious in the mid-19th century as it is today, the betrayal of Our Lord Jesus Christ by His priests is one of the deepest wounds of Our Lord’s present Passion in the Church.

Marxist Pope
“…not a true pastor, but a destroyer.”

The unique Crucifix of La Salette has a hammer on the left and a pincers on the right. Although it was not as clear then, it is much clearer now, isn’t it? The hammer on the left, symbol of hatred and sin, the very malice of Satan, was the tool used to nail the most Sacred Body of Christ to the Cross. And now we recognise it as the symbol of atheistic communism, tool of the anti-christ and now the  treasured symbol of Pope Francis.

Now think, on the left, the hammer which crucifies our Savior, and on the right, the pincers with which the true friends of Christ removed the hateful nails hammered in by Christ’s enemies.

As for the apparition, it was a vision of Our Lady radiant with the same dazzling light as at Fatima and of the same indescribable beauty. The vari-coloured roses call to mind the rays of light in many hues issuing from the rings on the fingers of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception when she gave the Miraculous Medal to Saint Catherine Laboure, and those rays represented graces. Although I have not seen any explanation, I believe that may be a similar interpretation in this instance, for she is the Mediatrix.

Think a moment on her tears and the hammer: Kneeling at your crucifix in meditation on the sorrowful mysteries, can you not hear that hammer echoing on down through the ages as it drove those nails through Our Dear Lord’s sacred hands and feet?  Can you not imagine that she still hears that hammer, feels in her sorrowful heart the pain of that hammer, those nails, our own hatred, sin and indifference to her Son’s love for us?

All of the symbols, taken in their entirety, point to a particular interpretation, which is a most dire warning.  I believe that Our Lady was announcing the beginning of the true Passion of the Church. She is indicating that just as Satan once infiltrated the close-knit band of Christ’s Apostles with Judas, at the time of her visit to La Salette, Satan had already achieved a very significant foothold within the leadership of the Church. The Pope had already conceded to the Masonic leaders of France the right to choose Bishops. Hence, we saw the virulent opposition of several French bishops – and then joined by those in other countries – to Our Lady’s message at La Salette. Today, again, this is much clearer as we now have a pope who is the perfect example of what a masonic pope would be, put into office by the machinations of a masonic Cardinal Danneels and applauded by Freemasons from Italy to Argentina.

On that remote mountaintop in France, Our Lady warned us that the true Church would be eclipsed. She warned of the same lying wonders we see today as gullible Catholics prefer false apparitions to the sterner stuff of the true Marian apparitions. She foretold the immense apostasy that is so painfully evident today. Our Lady of La Salette is known as “Reconciler of Sinners”, but all discussion of her message has been silenced by those in control of the Church. After the revolution of Vatican II, the Index of Forbidden Books was abolished, allowing heresy to be proclaimed openly and taught in seminaries, but the prohibition against discussing the message of La Salette has not been lifted. That makes only two messages forbidden, La Salette and the true Message of Fatima, for Sister Lúcia has also been silenced.

Since both warned of the satanic control of the Church, we do, as foretold, understand more clearly. Even more than at La Salette, Fatima’s Message is explicitly a call to rigorous reparation. Little children were shown hell and urged to make of everything a sacrifice. But yet, the most influential Catholic leaders today have failed to unite and proclaim the need for First Saturdays of Reparation and the entire Fatima Plan. Please continue to pray that they will do so. I realise that I am tedious in this regard, but for heaven’s sake, this is important!

For so long now, from her message at Quito, on through La Salette and on to Fatima and then, after, to Akita, Our Lady has sorrowfully begged her children to hear her. She is still, with immense sorrow, awaiting our response.

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

  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
  O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse thee!
  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!

Magister’s insight into the Global Educational Alliance

Magister, the Russian Mystic and Bergoglio’s Agenda

Few noted our recent article, A Russian Mystic on the Pan-Amazon Synodin which we discussed the great Russian mystic and philosopher Vladimir Solovyov whose prophecies on the Antichrist have found new relevance in these days of the Bergoglian blight of the faith. Today, the influential commentator Sandro Magister has also observed the relevance of Solovyov’s prophecies regarding the recent and ongoing events in this tragic papacy.

In his post of 19 September, which Sandro Magister provocatively titles, Everyone to the School of the Antichrist. But One Cardinal Rebels.”, Magister notes the relevance of the Russian philosopher Solovyov to the program of Pope Bergoglio. The rebelling Cardinal referred to is Cardinal Biffi, who was brought into prominence by Pope Benedict XVI. It is my own opinion that Pope Benedict did that, as he did similarly with the work of Saint Hildegard von Bingen as a warning about what was brewing – and that is precisely what we are living through now, the blight of the Bergoglian affliction of the faith.

A few excerpts from Magister’s article, please see link above for the full article.

 

While the controversy rages on in view of the synod on the Amazon, which in reality has its epicenter in the Church of Germany, the latest invention of Pope Francis has gone by almost unnoticed.

It is entitled “Reinventing the Global Educational Alliance,” and it is open to “all public figures” who “are engaged on the worldwide level” in the field of education, to whatever religion they may belong. The announcement was made on September 12, and the summit is scheduled for May 14 2020 at the Vatican.

It comes as no surprise that a pope like Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who belongs to the Society of Jesus – for centuries a great instructor of the ruling classes – should take such an interest in the schooling and formation of the new generations. But what is striking is the complete absence from his educational project of any sort of Christian distinction.

In the video message with which Francis launches the initiative there is not the slightest trace of God, nor of Jesus, nor of the Church. The dominant formula is “new humanism,” with its trappings of “shared home,” “universal solidarity,” “fraternity,” “convergence,” “welcome”…

And the religions? These too bunched together and neutralized in an indistinct “dialogue.” In order to “gain back the ground lost to discrimination,” the pope refers to the document “on human brotherhood” that he signed on February 4 2019 with the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, a document in which even “the pluralism and the diversity of religions” are “willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings.”

The novelty of this initiative of Francis consists precisely in the fact that it is the first time a pope has claimed as his own and put himself at the helm of such a radically secularized global educational pact. Because in reality a “new humanism” without Christ is not an original, but a constant in the thought of the West of the last two centuries.

From the Grand Inquisitor of Fyodor Dostoevsky, to the Gospel according to Leo Tolstoy, to the Antichrist of Vladimir Solovyov, to the “new humanism,” no less, of Edgar Morin – the French philosopher whom Francis received in private audience last June 27 following a conference in Rome precisely on the “convergences” of his thought with the vision of the current pope – there are many forms under which the unique and incomparable person of Christ is dissolved, replaced with a generic love for humanity.

“Within this project,” Luisella Scrosati commented in La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana of September 16, “God too is accommodated nicely, as long as he takes his seat among the guests of this new united humanity and does not claim to be the Bridegroom who calls to the wedding, and even decides to keep out those who do not have the wedding garment.”

In 2005 there was a great theologian and cardinal, named Giacomo Biffi (1928-2015), who powerfully brought attention back to the “great crisis that struck Christianity in the last decades of the nineteen hundreds,” hollowing out its substance in the name of a universal fraternity.

Biffi, in a chapter of one of his books, took up the account of the Antichrist written in 1900 by the Russian theologian and philosopher Solovyov, and applied it to the Church of today.

Here are some of its dazzling passages. As relevant as ever.

*

THE DAYS ARE COMING, AND ARE ALREADY HERE…

by Giacomo Biffi

The Antichrist, says Solovyov, […] believed in goodness, and even in God. […] He gave “the greatest possible demonstrations of moderation, disinterest, and active beneficence.” […] The book that had gained for him universal fame and consensus bore the title: “The Open Road to Universal Peace and Prosperity.” […]

It is true that some men of faith wondered why the name of Christ did not appear even once, but others replied: “If the contents of the book are permeated with the true Christian spirit, with active love and universal benevolence, what more do you want?” […]

Where Solovyov’s presentation shows itself to be particularly original and surprising – and merits greater reflection – is in the attribution to the Antichrist of the qualities of pacifist, environmentalist, ecumenist. […]

In this description of the Antichrist, Solovyov […] alludes above all to the “new Christianity” that Leo Tolstoy was successfully promoting during those years. […]

In his “Gospel,” Tolstoy reduces all of Christianity to five rules of conduct which he derives from the Sermon on the Mount:

1. Not only must you not kill, but you must not even become angry with your brother.
2. You must not give in to sensuality, not even to the desire for your own wife.
3. You must never bind yourself by swearing an oath.
4. You must not resist evil, but you must apply the principle of non-violence to the utmost and in every case.
5. Love, help, and serve your enemy.

According to Tolstoy, although these precepts come from Christ, they in no way require the actual existence of the Son of the living God to be valid. […]

(. . . )

So Solovyov’s teaching was simultaneously prophetic and largely ignored. But we want to repropose it in the hope that Christianity will finally catch on to it and pay it a bit of attention.

For the rest, please see Sandro Magister’s Settimo Cielo here.

† . † . †

I for one, am most grateful to read Magister’s words! And I pray always that readers are “finally catching on to it and pay it a bit of attention”!

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.
For the morning cometh,
also the night:
if you seek, seek: return, come.

 

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

†  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
†  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
†  O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse thee!
†  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!

A Russian Mystic on the Pan-Amazon Synod

 

Have you ever heard of Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov? Me neither, but Pope Benedict XVI invited Cardinal Giacomo Biffi to speak on Solovyov’s prophecies during a week long retreat at the Vatican back in 2007.

Came across an article from February, 2007 on Zenit which recounts a retreat preached at the Vatican for Pope Benedict XVI and the Curia by Cardinal Giacomo Biffi. On Tuesday of the week long retreat, the Cardinal based his meditations in part on the work of the Russian philosopher and mystic Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov, considered by many to be the greatest Russian philosopher.

Solovyov, who died in the year 1900 proposed the reunion of Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches under the Pope. He also foretold that the twentieth century would be a century of unparalleled horror and bloodshed. Cardianl Biffi quoted from Solovyov’s work “Three Dialogues on War, Progress and the End of History,” and  told his listeners, including Pope Benedict, that:

“the Antichrist presents himself as pacifist, ecologist and ecumenist.” …

“He will convoke an ecumenical council and will seek the consensus of all the Christian confessions, granting something to each one. The masses will follow him, with the exception of small groups of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants,” he said. …

The Cardinal added that Solovyov says in that work: “Days will come in Christianity in which they will try to reduce the salvific event to a mere series of values.” …

Cardinal Biffi warned, “Today, in fact, we run the risk of having a Christianity which puts aside Jesus with His cross and resurrection.” …

The Oath Against Modernism, September 1, 1910

 

On this day 109 years ago, in his Oath Against Modernism, Pope St. Pius X foretold this man, Pope Francis, who presents himself as our first truly humble and merciful pope, and he wrote of him. Indeed, his great encyclical Pascendi Domenici Gregis, written in September, 1907 is filled with prophecies about our little Argentinian treasure – reading the words of St. Pius X, it is hard to believe that he did not have our beloved Bergoglio’s illustrious words on Love, “Amoris Laetitia” in mind as he wrote it.

All joking aside, let’s take a look at a better time, when we had the brave and clear truths spoken by our truly Holy Father, one worthy of the name, Pope St. Pius X, who presciently warned of the false doctrines being promoted by just this pope, most especially in the Pan-Amazon Synod scheduled for next month in Rome.

“The purpose of this is, then, not that dogma may be tailored according to what seems better and more suited to the culture of each age; rather, that the absolute and immutable truth preached by the apostles from the beginning may never be believed to be different, may never be understood in any other way.” (Pope St. Pius X)

Pope Pius X, promulgated the Oath Against Modernism on September 1, 1910, 109 years ago today. It is instructive to review this oath, which was abolished by Paul VI and today is so widely scorned, reviled or simply ignored by those who currently occupy the seats of power in the Church today.

Saint Pius X, pray for us, pray for our priests!

With the death of this holy pope, the dark force of modernism was once again free to poison the faith, He was succeeded by Pope Benedict XV, a seemingly orthodox pope who nevertheless dismantled St. Pius’s Sodalitium Pianum, the network established to assure orthodoxy in the seminaries. Subsequent popes also contributed their efforts to undermining orthodoxy in sundry ways. Although these popes gave lip service to Our Lady’s message at Fatima, none actually went so far as to obey her. And so, modernism flourished under even those pre-Vatican II popes who appeared to be orthodox, until it burst into florid putrescence in the revolutionary Second Vatican Ecumenical Council.

As you review the Oath Against Modernism that follows, bear in mind that every Conciliar Pope from John XXIII through Benedict XVI had originally sworn this solemn oath, which of course, was violated by those same popes during and after Vatican II. Every single pope until Francis, the quintessential modernist pope; the very apotheosis of Vatican II.

The Nations Will Rise Up Against You

 

“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.”   (St. Hildegard von Bingen)

Yesterday was the day in our Traditional Calendar when we honor the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It was also the anniversary of the day on which Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò signed his testimonial regarding the extensive corruption of the sacred priesthood by the homosexual predators which have infiltrated the Church aided and abetted by the modernist, apostate hierarchy, even up to and including Pope Francis himself.

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.

Fridays for reparation for the Pan-Amazon Synod

 

A very good and kind priest suggested this re-post of the following little article as a help to us who have been working to make our Fridays days of reparation. A while back, I mentioned that perhaps we could arrange to incorporate more reparation on Fridays between now and this upcoming Synod. I know everyone is stretched to the max, but I am trying this in my own small way and will try to have a little boost towards making each Friday a good day of reparation. Many readers already make every Saturday a day of reparation to Our Lady by increasing their efforts on Our Lady’s day each week, so now, maybe we can join our Fridays to that as well. Then, at least in a small way, we are taking things a bit further towards storming heaven with loving pleas to save our Church. My own focus is two-fold – saving our priests and saving those poor victims of sexual abuse – but there are so many facets to this really massive spiritual attack being waged by satan – and each of us must decide where best to focus our efforts.

Today’s meditation:

After Our Lord fed the multitude with five loaves and two fishes, He proclaimed to them this truth:  “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it; for he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall save it.”, (Luke 9, 23-24)

And St. Paul also reminds us, “For the word of the cross, to them indeed that perish, is foolishness; but to them that are saved, that is, to us, it is the power of God. . . . But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews indeed a stumbling-block, and unto the Gentiles foolishness: But unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” (1 Corinth. 18-25)

The three little shepherds of Fatima represented the three calls to respond to the  message of Our Lady of Fatima, that is, Francisco, the mystic, consoled Our Lord and Our Lady in penitence and prayer, Jacinta’s response was to save souls by her sacrifices, penances and prayers, and Lucia responded by propagating the message of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, and by her penances and prayers. The scarlet thread that runs throughout these three calls and unites them is  penance and prayer.

Perhaps we could try to make Fridays a special day of penance and prayer for this awful pope and the scandal and confusion he is spreading throughout the Church. Perhaps also, we could make reparation for the flaccid mass of indifferent (c)atholics who choose to ignore it all. The following prayer is a favorite, hope you like it too!

The False Prophet and a Synod of Darkness

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE MYSTERY OF THE THIRD SECRET

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rainbow Logic

 

Recently, France has experienced its own “Terri Schiavo” moment and in a tragic recap of that case, Vincent Lambert was denied such basic care as food and even water.  We have all become somewhat accustomed to our church leaders refusing to lead in these moments, and hiding behind bland statements concocted by their “public relations” managers. But this time, in what must be a whole new level of incompetence the head of  the Pontifical Academy for Life,  Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia spoke at length on the subject, stringing cliches together without ever mentioning the commandments of God, or Our Lord Jesus Christ, Whom he purports to serve.

The analysis, including Paglia’s commentary is admirably covered by Lifesite here.

Vincent Lambert was denied even such a basic need as water. Think of that a moment, and realize what it must have been like for him. And the illustrious Paglia – yes, that one, he of the homorerotic mural – referred to the situation as “suspension of artificial feeding and hydration”. Artificial!!

“The painful family conflict over the hypothesis of the suspension of artificial feeding and hydration, since access to the knowledge of the patient’s wishes is excluded – an essential element in assessing the proportionality of treatment – has led to a deadlock that has lasted for years.”

(. . . )

“These events therefore require us to clarify and deepen the role and meaning of medical care and the criteria that govern its use. Pope Francis also reminded us that it is necessary to avoid a blind extension of biological functions, losing sight of the integral good of the person (Address to the World Medical Association Convention on Assisted Suicide, 16 November 2017).

“In the face of these dramatic divisions, it is first of all a question of assuming an attitude of contemplation  and prayer of proximity, so that we can find means of communication that promote reconciliation rather than controversy, at family and social levels. We must also avoid entrusting the solution only to a technical or legal action in order to seek together the broadest possible agreement. It is a journey that requires a commitment, not only personal but also collective, to develop that sense of life that suffering challenges and to confront the radical limit of death. It is a question of awakening the forces that culture has always mobilized in the history of humanity, in all its symbolic expressions, from artistic to religious, offering reasons to live. Only a broader and deeper formation of consciousness can prepare us for such dramatic and complex decisions. Knowing that no one should ever be abandoned. That love must always accompany him. A love that also overcomes death.”

Well, evidently Paglia’s rainbow love cannot overcome thirst. It’s possible that  I can never grasp Paglia’s wisdom, since I do not have my own rainbow glasses. And so, poor me, I cannot see where refusing a drink of water to someone who is quite helplessly ill is an affirmation of the “integral good of the person”.

Paglia advises us  that  we need to “assume an attitude of contemplation” and a “prayer of proximity”  to “find means of communication”.  Do we need our own rainbow glasses when we assume this attitude of contemplation?

And he stresses that  “only” a “deeper formation of consciousness” can “prepare for such dramatic and complex decisions” regarding whether a sick and helpless person should be forced to die without even a drink of water.  It never occurs to him to simply kneel before our dear Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, and ask Him. Vincenzo Paglia, your REAL boss is calling you! You will only find the answer to these “dramatic” enigmas in Christ Our Lord. Take off your silly glasses, and pray!

Dr. Elizabeth Wickham of Lifetree.org explains,

“Transformed by the new medical specialty of palliative medicine today’s death hastening agenda has supplied us with professionals who are taught and certified in skills needed to patients and families into requesting life-limiting medical treatment.   Archbishop Paglia’s statement fails to properly interpret the Fifth Commandment and to warn the faithful. (Had he done so), The world would have better understood what happened to Vincent Lambert.

“In addition, did you know that the Vatican, under the direction of Archbishop Paglia, is funding the PAL-Life Project launched by the Pontifical Academy for Life in 2018 and designed to expand palliative medicine into both developed and underdeveloped countries?  http://www.academyforlife.va/content/pav/en/projects/pallife.html”

“Indeed, it is a tragedy. Palliative medicine funded by globalist George Soros and now by the Vatican is becoming the new philosophy of end-of-life care in a global economy.  The cases of Vincent Lambert in France, Baby Alphie Evans in the UK, Terri Schiavo in the US, and many others are evidence of this takeover of healthcare. It is time to speak out about these abuses against the Fifth Commandment.
