I have been sickened and disheartened over the stench from the Vatican, but even more so because of the Catholic response to it. For respite, I turned to St. Catherine of Siena and in her beautiful Dialogue we find the following.
In her Dialogue, St. Catherine of Siena tells us that The Eternal Truth complained to her of His consecrated ministers who were so ungrateful that, “They repay Me in this way by continually persecuting Me with such diverse and terrible sins that thy tongue could not narrate, and thou wouldest faint at hearing them. Certain things, however, I will tell thee of them besides that which I have already said, in order to give thee matter for weeping and compassion.”
The Lord God charged His unfaithful ministers as being “like men blinded and without the light of reason, (who) have become animals through their sins, and live lasciviously in word and deed.” Of them He says, “What purity is this that he brings, who rises in the morning with his mind defiled, and his body corrupted with impure mortal sin, and proceeds to celebrate?”
In Chapter 124 of St. Catherine’s Dialogue, the Lord God discourses on how among His ministers reigns unnatural sin.
I say this to thee in order that thou mayest see how great a purity I require from you and from them in this Sacrament, and particularly from them. But they act in a contrary way, for they come full of impurity to this mystery. … committing that accursed
sin against nature, and as blind and fools with the light of their intellect darkened, they do not know the stench and misery in which they are. It is not only that this sin stinks before Me, Who am the Supreme and Eternal Truth, it does indeed displease Me so much and I hold it in such abomination that for it alone I buried five cities by a Divine judgment, My Divine justice being no longer able to endure it.
This sin not only displeases Me as I have said, but also the devils whom these wretches have made their masters. Not that the evil displeases them because they like anything good, but because their nature was originally angelic, and their angelic nature causes them to loathe the sight of the actual commission of this enormous sin. They truly enough hurl the arrow poisoned with the venom of concupiscence, but when their victim proceeds to the actual commission of the sin, they depart for the reason and in the manner that I have said.
Thou rememberest that I manifested to thee before the plague how displeasing this sin was to Me, and how deeply the world was corrupted by it; so I lifted thee with holy desire and elevation of mind above thyself, and showed thee the whole world and, as it were, the nations thereof, and thou sawest this terrible sin and the devils fleeing as I have told thee, and thou rememberest that so great was the pain that thou didst receive, and the stench of this sin, that thou didst seem to thyself to see no refuge on this side of death, in which thou and My other servants could hide so as not to be attacked by this leprosy.

I apologise for the past few articles regarding the corruption in the Vatican. It is unpleasant to talk about but
needs to be placed in perspective. The corruption pouring forth now from the Bergoglian Vatican has actually been a growing undercurrent for well over 100 years. It was given fresh impetus with Vatican II and now, as Our Lord and His most Blessed Mother are driven out by the pride, presumption and lust of the current occupants, the Vatican’s thin veneer should burst to reveal the tawdry squalor within.
As upsetting as the Capozzi sex-capades are, even more disappointing is the indifference of so many Catholics to this and the many other scandals under Pope Francis. The healthy Catholic response to the homosexual orgy and drug smuggling that fueled it, should be righteous indignation. But many Catholics today have become so indoctrinated to be “tolerant” of grave sin that they no longer object to the openly homosexual clergy and do not even become concerned when Pope Francis clears out the pro-life members of the Pontifical Academy for Life and appoints people like the Anglican Nigel Biggar who supports abortion and Katarina le Blanc who ghoulishly uses the stem cells from aborted babies in her research, thus supporting trafficking in murdered preborn infants.
In the midst of this most recent outbreak of scandal, I returned to a book I treasure, written almost one thousand years ago by a great saint in the Church. Although even the Catholic Encyclopedia tries to cast aspersions on his work, St. Peter Damian’s inspired genius is as appropriate for today as it was those many centuries ago, and today we have the excellent translation (here) by Matthew Cullinan Hoffman as well. St. Peter Damian’s “Liber Gomorrhianus” or “Book of Gomorrah” is far and away the most impassioned denunciation of sexual perversion ever penned by a Catholic saint.
St. Peter Damian wrote in the eleventh century, a time in which as Hoffman notes, “The popes had politicized the papacy by appropriating its spiritual functions for secular ends.” Incredible isn’t it to see how history just keeps repeating itself and I guess it will do so until we finally grasp its lessons!
St. Peter Damian knew that it was necessary to define the problem in clear, unambiguous terms, avoiding all polite euphemisms. His writings show that he was aware that some could construe them as a source of scandal to the vulnerable. He also knew that his words and actions would arouse undying enmity from the vicious men who engage in these behaviors. But he so loved Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Church, the most pure Bride of Christ, that he fearlessly denounced “the cancer of sodomy” and urged the Pope for a reform to purify the Church.
Today, we’ll follow up on some loose ends from our last post, explaining them in the light of current trends in the Bergoglian Vatican.
From Chapter 9, The Apocalypse, verses 1-5, we read:
“And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit. And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power: And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree: but only the men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads. And it was given unto them that they should not kill them; but that they should torment them five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man.”
As we stated previously, Paul VI was the Fallen Star to whom the key to hell had been given. The Fallen Star was given a key, with which he opened the bottomless pit. The smoke of the pit arose, darkening the sun, and out of the smoke came locusts. The darkness of the sun is a spiritual disorientation, thus, another reference to the conciliar church. The locusts could not harm any green thing, but only harm “men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads”. The reference to not harming “any green thing” refers to being unable to harm those with living faith, that is, truly faithful Catholics. The scripture reference to five months indicates that these locusts will only hold power for a limited time. We believe that the five months indicates the roughly 50 years of the infestation of the Church by the spiritual, moral, and financial corruption of Popes John, Paul and their successors, culminating in this current occupant, the Pope of Affliction.
Although John XXIII during his brief reign, did much to set the stage for the current mess in the Vatican, it was Paul VI who really got the homosexual and satanic powers established. On his watch, several transforming trends raced through the church, contributing to the current disaster. We all know the role Paul VI had in corrupting the Mass and the sacraments, abolishing the Oath Against Modernism and so on. But Paul achieved so much more for his Master!
In addition to his promotion of the modernist heresy throughout the Church, Paul VI’s homosexuality encouraged the homosexual priest networks throughout the world. The best sources I have found for this are Atila Guimaraes’ “Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia” (especially beginning with p. 157) and Randy Engels’ Volume V of “The Rite of Sodomy“. That last is available on Kindle and if you do not have the stamina to read her entire work on this painful subject, this one volume is the essential one. I cannot recommend it enough! Additionally, the following link is very helpful in understanding the transformational accomplishments of Pope Paul VI: Chiesa Viva.
On another front as well, Paul VI was instrumental in his efforts to attack the Church on behalf of his true master. This was the Vatican Bank and its ties to the deep corruption of international finance. The heresies, the homosexuality and the financial corruptions are all flowing together in the tide of sewage let loose in the Vatican by John XXIII, vivified by Paul VI’s smoke of Satan and now, openly reigning under the Argentinian thug currently occupying the Vatican.
Regarding the homosexuality of Paul VI, Guimaraes cites Francesco Bellegrandi, Professor of Modern History at Innsbruck University, correspondent for L’Osservatore Romano, decorated with the Golden Cross of Merit of the Austrian Republic, and a papal Honor Chamberlain, in the Vatican Noble Guard, the elite military honor corps consisting of members of the Roman nobility.
This from Bellegrandi:
Another change observed by those who … used to pass a large amount of time inside the Apostolic Palace, was the sudden appointment of homosexuals to positions of prestige and responsibility close to the papacy. This plague infested, transformed and devastated the Vatican during the time of Paul VI. It had already begun then (in the pontificate of John XXIII), well hidden in the baroque curtain folds of the Pontifical Court, but unfortunately alive and real. But it was the distant hand of the Archbishop of Milan, himself a victim of such weaknesses, that discreetly placed one after another on the (Vatican) State chessboard … the pieces of his game dear to his heart.
Those highly situated new personages, who were contaminated by the same ‘sickness’, naturally brought with them other less highly placed people of the same ilk. Therefore, slowly but continuously, rumors and indiscretions began to flow in the Vatican, and grave facts began to occur as a matter of course. (Guimaraes, “Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia“)
Bellegrandi described how he and his comrades in the Noble Guards strove to keep clear of the proliferation of effeminate young men who used makeup to hide their beards, and the scandals that frequently erupted over the “favorites” of Montini. “The Gendarmeria Pontificia (Vatican Police) had to steer carefully…and keep one eye closed -and sometimes both eyes- to keep reports from leaking and discourage sharp journalists…” Sounds familiar doesn’t it?
There is much available on the Vatican Bank’s many scandals, but Engels’ Volume V, cited above, has a short summary of both the homosexual mafia and the banking scandal in her epilogue to Volume V. Of course, Fr. Malachi Martin is a great source as well for the banking. Yallop’s “In God’s Name” covers the banking in very good detail. 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.
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.
Where is the established Catholic press on this? Where are the Bishops to decry this disgusting scandal? Why are the “faithful” so indifferent? Who is more guilty? These weak, effeminate men, driven by satan, or the indifferent and faithless Catholics who simply shrug the whole thing off?
To return to Chapter 9, The locusts had over them:
“ A king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans,  One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter.  And the sixth angel sounded the trumpet: and I heard a voice from the four horns of the great altar, which is before the eyes of God,  Saying to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates.  And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year: for to kill the third part of men.”
What is clear, or should be, from the above is that the locusts exemplify the effeminate occupiers of the Vatican since Vatican II invited the vermin in. There is virtually no vice, be it homosexuality, usurious greed for money, or lust for worldly power that has not been blatantly flaunted by these ruthless men.
But they can only harm those who have already grown lax in their faith!
Please take note of this. Although this is the most disheartening episode in our Church’s history and although it seems as though the Church will be totally vanquished by the ancient enemy, we know that this will not be! I have tried to show you as clearly as possible, the sure means we have to not only maintain our faith, but to help the others who depend on us, so that we will all be saved. Most will not heed the message. That is tragic, but we must not look back, like Lot’s wife, but look to Mary, let ourselves be led by the Immaculata.
Soon, I hope to post more on how we can do this, and I have a few very simple ways we can maintain our peace of heart and be fruitful even in these trials. And then, we will return to our series to show the Apocalyptic papacy of the present occupants of the See of Peter, and perhaps get an inkling of what may be in store.
† 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!
When I am able, I hope to return to posting on the Apocalypse in light of the Bergoglian Reformation which is proceeding apace under the Pope of Affliction. For today we will revisit this previous post to prepare. I have added a few notes. evensong.
Looking at Apocalypse 9 in the light of the message of Fatima: In our earlier post, “Fatima, Vatican II and the Chastisement 2″, we posited that the Fallen Star, Wormwood, refers to the disobedient Pope John XXIII. This unfortunate man refused to obey the requests of Christ and His Mother and consequently brought a spiritual darkness and disorientation upon the Church from which she has not been able to recover. The Second Vatican Council, which Pope John XXIII so proudly convened has failed by every measure to bring the spiritual renewal he boasted of. Indeed, it has been an unmitigated disaster, or more precisely, chastisement. It cannot be remedied until the Pope and Bishops of the Church obey God’s command, given by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima and emphasised by our Lord Jesus Christ in His apparition to Sister Lucia in Rianjo. (“How Long, O Lord, How Long?“)
Previously, “The Fifth Trumpet“, we looked at the second Fallen Star of Chapter 9, considering if it may be applied to Pope Paul VI. Although earlier commentators applied this prophecy to the arch-heretic Martin Luther, 500 years have passed since Martin Luther, and at this time, the figure of the Fallen Star of Chapter 9 appears most appropriate to Pope Paul VI for the reasons which we brought out in that earlier post. Martin Luther did immense harm to the Faith. However, the Catholic Church maintained her integrity despite his assaults; whereas, under the two Fallen Stars of Chapters 8 and 9, that is, Pope John XXIII and Paul VI, the Church has been ravaged by the enemy within, betrayed by her very “Holy Fathers”.
In earlier posts, we began considering the locusts, those apocalyptic monsters which have intrigued every generation for two millenia. The most popular theory of recent times has been to identify them with the muslim hordes, which do lend themselves to much speculation. Archbishop Fulton Sheen also believed that this was appropriate as we related in an earlier post, “Our Lady of Fatima and Islam” . As did Father Herman Bernard Kramer in his Book of Destiny. However, this popular premise is wrong, as we shall see.
Today, on the 110th anniversary of its issuance we offer “Lamentabili Sane”, Pope Pius X’s Syllabus Against Modernism. It was his brave, if unsuccessful, effort to stem the tide of heresy that eventually overwhelmed the Church in the twentieth century.
It is good to refresh our knowledge of these condemned errors, since they are the foundation for the irreversible changes being foisted upon us by the Bergoglio/Kasper agenda.
As a preface to Lamentabili Sane,we offer a little quote from Pope St. Pius X’s “Notre Charge Apostolique” in which he condemns the Sillon, a precursor of the “social justice” being preached today in place of the Gospel.
“Our Apostolic Mandate requires from Us that We watch over the purity of the Faith and the integrity of Catholic discipline. It requires from Us that We protect the faithful from evil and error; especially so when evil and error are presented in dynamic language which, concealing vague notions and ambiguous expressions with emotional and high-sounding words, is likely to set ablaze the hearts of men in pursuit of ideals which, whilst attractive, are nonetheless nefarious. Such were not so long ago the doctrines of the so-called philosophers of the 18th century, the doctrines of the Revolution and Liberalism which have been so often condemned; such are even today the theories of the Sillon which, under the glowing appearance of generosity, are all too often wanting in clarity, logic and truth.”
And now for Pope St. Pius X’s beautiful and clear condemnation of the errors of our time, which he proclaimed one hundred and ten years ago and which is even more relevant today:
Pius X July 3, 1907
With truly lamentable results, our age, casting aside all restraint in its search for the ultimate causes of things, frequently pursues novelties so ardently that it rejects the legacy of the human race. Thus it falls into very serious errors, which are even more serious when they concern sacred authority, the interpretation of Sacred Scripture, and the principal mysteries of Faith. The fact that many Catholic writers also go beyond the limits determined by the Fathers and the Church herself is extremely regrettable. In the name of higher knowledge and historical research (they say), they are looking for that progress of dogmas which is, in reality, nothing but the corruption of dogmas.
These errors are being daily spread among the faithful. Lest they captivate the faithful’s minds and corrupt the purity of their faith, His Holiness, Pius X, by Divine Providence, Pope, has decided that the chief errors should be noted and condemned by the Office of this Holy Roman and Universal Inquisition.
Therefore, after a very diligent investigation and consultation with the Reverend Consultors, the Most Eminent and Reverend Lord Cardinals, the General Inquisitors in matters of faith and morals have judged the following propositions to be condemned and proscribed. In fact, by this general decree, they are condemned and proscribed.
Today, we honor Our Lady’s Visitation, which invites us to enter into the intimate life of our Savior, right from the beginning, blessing John before either of them were born, and working this miracle through His Blessed Mother. So much to savor in this delightful scene from Holy Scripture!
The Magnificat of the Blessed Virgin Mary
“And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord.
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
Because He hath regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
For He that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is His name.
And His mercy is from generation to generations unto them that fear Him.
He hath shewed strength in His arm:
He hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat,
And hath exalted the humble.
He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich He hath sent empty away.
He hath helped Israel His servant, being mindful of His mercy:
As He spoke unto our fathers, to Abraham and his seed for ever.” [Luke 1, 46-55]
The Magnificat, Our Lady’s Hymn of Praise
Luke’s Gospel tells us that:
When Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.”[Luke 1, 41-45].
Now, this remarkable event was the occasion of the very first miracle wrought by Our Lord Jesus Christ and it tells us a couple of important things:
First, Jesus worked this miracle before He was born on the as yet unborn infant son of Elizabeth, John.
Second, Jesus worked this miracle through the Blessed Virgin Mary. The fact that Jesus thus effected His first two miracles through His most Holy Mother is significant, although little noted in the conciliar Church today.
Note that Elizabeth “was filled with the Holy Ghost” when she said, “Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.” This means that Elizabeth’s praise of Mary was inspired by the Holy Spirit, the same Holy Spirit, referred to earlier in Luke 1, 35, “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee.”
To understand the Magnificat, consider that even as Elizabeth praised Mary, Mary responded with a hymn of praise to God. Mary, as the creature most perfect, most beloved of God, acknowledges that she is nothing without God. This perfect humility in Mary, this perfect obedience to God’s will in all things is what makes our devotion to Mary so beneficial. Mary is our quickest, surest way to the Heart of her beloved Son.
“My soul doth magnify the Lord.” How can a mere mortal “magnify” the Divine Lord? In the pure, clear soul of the Immaculata, God’s glory is reflected back as a mirror reflects back the brightness of the blazing sun. This image alone is such a rich source of contemplation, it would take volumes to begin to express properly.
Mary then proclaims, “my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because He hath regarded the lowliness of His handmaid.”In this, she confirms that she is only the servant of God, her Saviour. When, in the Magnificat Mary refers to herself as “His handmaid”, it is the second time she has done so. The first was when she said at the Annunciation, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word.” By this repetition, Mary is emphasizing the importance of her humble obedience. Mary’s entire role in the salvation of mankind is based on humility and obedience.
The following verse, “behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed”, is overlooked by those who reject devotion to Mary. Our Blessed Mother quickly adds to that verse, “Because He that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is His name”.Thus, we see that Mary always keeps the divine order, and never fails to attribute her every blessing to God alone. It is impossible to be truly devoted to Mary and not at the same time adore the most Holy Trinity; Mary is the most beloved Daughter of God the Father, the most pure Mother of God the Son and the most glorious Spouse of God the Holy Spirit. Thus, Mary’s entire worth is in her perfect reflection of God.
Mary’s hymn reflects also her adoration of God’s most sacred name, “Holy is His name.” This, of course is our first duty and Mary’s hymn exemplifies this exquisitely. The Magnificat is a salutary prayer to remedy the all-pervasive blasphemy of these times.
Not only is today the First Saturday of Reparation in July, it is the Feast of the Precious Blood of Jesus, the Month of the Precious Blood of Jesus! A day rich in beautiful reminders of God’s gracious providence for us, even though we do not deserve such generosity. For today we turn to Father Faber’s tender tribute to the Precious Blood.
“Their superior intelligence ministers more abundant matter to their love. From the very first God invited the angels to adore It. He made their adoration a double exercise of humility,—of humility toward Himself, and of humility toward us their inferior fellow-creatures. It was the test to which He put their loyalty. He showed them His beloved Son, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, in His Sacred Humanity, united to a lower nature than their own, and in that lower nature crowned their King and Head, to be worshipped by them with absolute and unconditional adoration. The Son of a human Mother was to be their Head, and that Daughter of Eve to be herself their Queen. …
The Precious Blood belongs in an especial manner to men. Much more, therefore, does God invite them to come to Its heavenly baths, and receive therein, not only the cleansing of their souls, but the power of a new and amazing life. Every doctrine in theology is a call to the Precious Blood. Every ceremony in the Church tells of it. Every sermon that is preached is an exhortation to the use of it. Every Sacrament is a communication of it. Every supernatural act is a growth of it. Every thing that is holy on the earth is either leaf, bud, blossom, or fruit of the Blood of Jesus.
To its fountains, God calls the sinner, that he may be lightened of his burdens. There is no remission for him in any thing else. Only there is his lost son-ship to be found. But the saints are no less called by God to these invigorating streams. It is out of the Precious Blood that men draw martyrdoms, vocations, celibacies, austerities, heroic charities, and all the magnificent graces of high sanctity. The secret nourishment of prayer is from those fountains. They purge the eye for sublime contemplations. They kindle the inward fires of self-sacrificing love. They bear a man safely, and even impetuously, over the seeming impossibilities of perseverance. It is by the Blood of Jesus that the soul becomes ever more and more radiant. It is the secret source of all mystical transformations of the soul into the likeness of its Crucified Spouse. …
All the new nature of the man, who is “renewed in Christ Jesus,” comes from this Blood, whether it be his love of suffering, his delight in shame, his grace of prayer, his unworldly tastes, his strange humility, his shy concealment, his zeal for souls, his venturous audacity, or his obstinate perseverance. Sinner, saint, and common Christian, all in their own ways, require the Precious Blood each moment of their lives; and, as the manna in the mouths of the Israelites had the savor which each man wished it to have, so is it with the sweetness, the variety, and the fitness of the graces of the Precious Blood.
Father Faber reminds us that Our Savior’s Precious Blood came from Mary.
Mary’s blood was the material out of which the Holy Ghost, the Third Person of the Most Holy Trinity, the artificer of the Sacred Humanity, fashioned the Blood of Jesus. Here we see how needful to the joy and gladness of our devotion is the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception. Who could bear to think that the matter of the Precious Blood had ever been itself corrupted with the taint of sin, that it had once been part of the devil’s kingdom, that what was to supply the free price of our redemption was once enslaved to God’s darkest, foulest enemy?
Who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio? Who is this man who has succeeded in making such a mess of the Church? In a recent discussion, this question arose and after some lively exchanges, a consensus was reached. To understand it, let’s return to Father Malachi Martin’s writings from back in the final decade of the last century.
Father Malachi Martin has certainly been a sign of contradiction and yet even today, despite the efforts of his many detractors, much of what he wrote has proved prescient, especially under the current occupant of the See of Peter. One of Martin’s most sensational claims was that in an occult masonic ceremony performed on June 29, 1963, Lucifer was enthroned in the Vatican. The event was described in Martin’s book, “Windswept House“, which was published in the late 1990’s. In an interview with Bernard Janzen, published in “The Tempter’s Hour”, Father Martin spoke about the book and its message:
“95% of the events (related in the book) are factual, but they are cloaked in novelistic form.” He stated that the primary theme of the book is “The Roman Catholic Church …. is in apostasy.” Father explained that an apostate is one who denies basic truths of the Church, such as hell, divine grace, or personal sin, such as in reducing sin to merely social offenses, [as the present occupant does].
Father Martin then stated:
“At the present moment (1997) a sizable majority of Catholics are in apostasy. They have been led into apostasy by churchmen in apostasy. At least a sizable minority of cardinals, bishops, priests and religious are in apostasy. They no longer profess the basic truths of Christianity, let alone Catholicism….They are apostates and yet they are in charge. They are in charge of the Church.”
Now, nearly a generation later, it is clear that the “sizable minority” of apostate cardinals and bishops has become the vast majority. Father Martin then explained that a sub-theme of Windswept House is that,
“In a short time, humanly speaking, there will be no visible holy Roman Catholic Church organization.” Further, “This is referred to as auto-demolition. [See here for more on this.] In the 1960’s there was this diabolical consecration, this enthronement of Satan within the Vatican. … It is a historical fact. … done by Luciferians from all over the world and therefore, in a certain sense, Lucifer has power in Rome. He doesn’t own Rome yet (in 1997), but I’m sure he hopes to own some future Pope so that the house will be truly his. The only man who can expel Lucifer from Rome is the owner of the house. And that owner is the Pope. It is the Pope that must carry out the exorcism, the cleaning of the house.”
“The Luciferians have a very tight schedule. They have an inner Luciferian prophecy that says that unless the prince is properly installed in the citadel, namely in the Vatican, they have lost. Now in order to install the prince and complete the enthronement, they have to get rid of this Pope.”
Note that Martin said this in 1997. So you can see how impatient the Danneels/Kasper faction must have been when not only did Pope John Paul II hang on, but then Benedict took office and issued his Moto Proprio for the perpetuation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Despite Pope Benedict’s many shortcomings, this freeing-up of the Holy Sacrifice was a great blessing for the faithful seeking to find Christ amidst the conciliar wreckage.
Now, we must be clear: According to Father Martin, the enemy required that the initial enthronement of June 29, 1963 must be completed within fifty years by the Installation of their Prince in the Citadel. That Prince is the person to whom it is given to complete the irreversible changes of the Catholic Faith; someone with a hardened resolve to totally eclipse the true Church with the necessary church of this world.
With the June 29, 2013 deadline approaching, those serving the ancient enemy within the Church had to force Benedict’s resignation. We discussed the forced resignation in our post, “Was Pope Benedict SWIFTed?” Once he was properly “installed” one of the first decisions Pope Francis made was to live with his dear friend, the notorious sodomite Mgsr. Ricca, and also to appoint him to a prestigious post at the Vatican Bank (IOR). Thus another link with the forces of international finance and the Lavender Mafia/St. Gallen Group.
I expect many readers will recoil at all that I have written above. There was a time when I would have too! I was repelled by Father Martin’s writing on the Enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican when I first read it. But that was before Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Now, I completely agree that there is some evil force behind all this, and that it serves the power-brokers of this world, powers that hate human life, hate Our Lord Jesus Christ and wish to destroy any sign of Him in this world. I have stated often that I believe Pope Francis intends nothing less than the abolition of the Mass. But he is also forging ahead with his demolition of the structures of the faith.
Many other bloggers have documented how Bergoglio has dismantled the Pontifical Academy for Life and now has begun demolishing the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family, Sandro Magister has a most informative article on just this subject here.
Father Malachi Martin wrote much about what he thought might happen, but that was before the turn of the century. What would he think about our situation now? Would he recognise in Jorge Mario Bergoglio the man called forth by the dark ceremonies of 1963? What do you think? And what do you think will happen next?
As always, please, Pray the Rosary and confound Satan and all those who serve him!
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff. † Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come!

“Hapless are they who neglect Mary under pretext of the honor to be paid to Jesus Christ! As if the Child could be found elsewhere than with the Mother!”(Pope St. Pius X, Ad Diem Illum Laetissimum, 1904)
Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Today we honor the Blessed Virgin Mary under her title, our Mother of Perpetual Help. In the image above, the Christ Child confronted with the Archangels Gabriel (on His left) and Michael (on His right) carrying the instruments of the Crucifixion, has turned to His most Blessed Mother for solace.
But the most poignant detail in the image is the loosened sandal dangling from the Christ Child’s foot — the image invites us to “complete it” by considering the Blessed Mother tenderly fastening her Divine Son’s sandal, ever attending to His needs. The instruments of Our Lord’s Crucifixion also call to mind that at His Crucifixion Christ gave her to us to be our Mother, a role that she displays in this richly complex image, Mother of Perpetual Help.
Our Mother of Perpetual Help stands ready to help us still, but few there are who turn to her in these dark times. Thus, we, her children must bear the responsibility for all those so steeped in sin they no longer even realize the danger. It falls to us to pray and offer reparation for them, trusting in Our Blessed Mother of Perpetual Help to come their aid, even though they are unable to ask it for themselves. And so, we offer a Novena Prayer and a Litany for you.
NOVENA PRAYER TO OUR MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP
(The long version.)
Behold at thy feet, O Mother of Perpetual Help, a wretched sinner who has recourse to thee and confides in thee. O Mother of mercy, have pity on me! I hear thee called by all, the Refuge and the Hope of sinners, be then, my refuge and my hope. Assist me for the love of Jesus Christ. Stretch forth thy hand to a miserable fallen creature, who recommends himself to thee snd who devotes himself to thy service forever. I bless and thank Almighty God, Who in His mercy has given me this confidence in thee, which I hold to be a pledge of my eternal salvation.
It is true, dearest Mother, that in the past I have fallen miserably into sin, because I had not recourse to thee. I know that with thy help, I shall conquer. I know too, that thou wilt assist me if I recommend myself to thee, but I fear, dear Mother, that in time of danger, I may neglect to call on thee, and thus, may lose my soul. This grace then, I ask of thee, and this I beg, with all the fervor of my soul, that in all the attacks of hell, I may ever have recourse to thee.
O Mary, help me! O Mother of Perpetual Help, never let me lose my God!
Nine Hail Marys
O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke thy most powerful name, which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying. O Purest May! O Sweetest Mary! Let thy name be ever on my lips. Delay not O Blessed lady, to help me when I call on thee, for in all my temptations, in all my needs, I shall never cease to call on thee, ever repeating thy sacred name, Mary, Mary! O, what consolation, what sweetness, what confidence fills my soul when I utter thy name or think of thee! I thank the Lord for having given thee for my good, so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name. But I will not be content with merely uttering thy name, let my love for thee prompt me ever to hail thee, my Mother of Perpetual Help!
Nine Hail Marys
O Mother of Perpetual help, thou art the dispenser of all the gifts which God grants to miserable sinners, and for this end, He has made thee so powerful, so rich in mercy, so bountiful in order that thou may help us in our adversity. Thou art the advocate of wretched and abandoned sinners who have recourse to thee. Come to my aid, dearest Mother. In thy hands I place my eternal salvation and to thee I entrust my soul. Count me among thy most devoted servants and take me under thy protection. For if thou protect me, dear Mother, I shall fear nothing; not from my sins because thou wilt obtain for me pardon from them; nor from devils, because thou art more powerful than all hell, nor even from Jesus, my Just Judge, because by one prayer from thee, He will be appeased.
Only one thing do I fear, that in the hour of temptation, I may through negligence fail to have recourse to thee and thus perish miserably. Obtain for me therefore, the pardon of my sins, the love for Jesus, final perseverance, and the grace to have recourse to thee, O Mother of Perpetual Help.
Nine Hail Marys
Pray for us, O Mother of Perpetual Help.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
O Lord Jesus Christ who didst give us Thy Mother Mary, whose renowned image we venerate, to be a Mother always ready to help us, grant we beseech Thee, that we who constantly implore her maternal aid may merit to enjoy perpetually the fruits of Thy redemption, who livest and reignest forever and ever. Amen.
In our previous post on Saint Jacinta, “Designs of Mercy – Jacinta“, we spoke of Our Lady’s visit to Saints Francisco and Jacinta Marto in January, 1919. In her Memoirs, Lúcia tells us,
“Our Lady came to see us”, Jacinta said. “She told us She would come to take Francisco to Heaven very soon, and She asked me if I still wanted to convert more sinners. I said I did. She told me I would be going to a hospital where I would suffer a great deal; and that I am to suffer for the conversion of sinners, in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for love of Jesus. I asked if you (Lúcia) would go with me. She said you wouldn’t, and that is what I find hardest. She said my mother would take me, and then I would have to stay there all alone!”
In Volume II, Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité speaks of Sister Lúcia’s impression of Jacinta:
“Jacinta was the one who received from Our Lady a greater abundance of grace, and a better knowledge of God and of virtue”
Although she was indeed the youngest of the three seers, it was she who appeared to enjoy the greatest intimacy with the Most Holy Virgin. When the cycle of the six great public apparitions was completed, Jacinta continued almost uninterruptedly to enjoy supernatural favors, right up until her death.
In our earlier post on Jacinta, we mentioned Frère Michel’s remark,
“It is indeed surprising to observe how much, after the apparition of July 13, the thought of the Holy Father kept constantly coming back to the minds of the three seers. This was one of their major preoccupations, along with solicitude for sinners, and the sight of the terrifying war to come. Why? Undoubtedly because the Pope plays a role of decisive importance in the great prophecy of the Secret: he is already named five times in the published part of the Secret; we may believe that he is mentioned again in the part which has not yet been published. Let us add that several supernatural communications Sister Lúcia was later favored with, concerning the role of the Holy Father in the great prophecy of the Secret, surely supply us with the context which sheds much light on the visions of Jacinta. “
In her memoirs, Lúcia recalled several prophetic visions given to little Jacinta.
“One day we spent our siesta down by my parents’ well. Jacinta sat on the stone slab on top of the well. Francisco and I climbed up a steep bank in search of wild honey among the brambles in a nearby thicket. After a little while, Jacinta called out to me: ‘Didn’t you see the Holy Father?’ ‘No.’
‘I don’t know how it was, but I saw the Holy Father in a very big house, kneeling by a table, with his head buried in his hands, and he was weeping. Outside the house, there were many people. Some of them were throwing stones, others were cursing him and using bad language. Poor Holy Father, we must pray much for him.’
“I have already told you how, one day, two priests recommended that we pray for the Holy Father, and explained to us who the Pope was. Afterwards, Jacinta asked me: ‘Is he the one I saw weeping, the one Our Lady told us about in the Secret?’ ‘Yes, he is,’ I answered. (And Jacinta, with childlike candour, went on:) ‘The Lady must surely have shown him also to those priests. You see, I wasn’t mistaken. We need to pray a lot for him.’
