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.

And there were given to them seven trumpets...
And there were given to them seven trumpets…

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.

The Sixth Angel

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

[13] … and I heard a voice from the four horns of the great altar, which is before the eyes of God, [14] Saying to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates. [15] And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year: for to kill the third part of men.

[16] And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. [17] And thus I saw the horses in the vision: and they that sat on them, had breastplates of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone. [18] And by these three plagues was slain the third part of men, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. [19] For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For, their tails are like to serpents, and have heads: and with them they hurt. [20] And the rest of the men, who were not slain by these plagues, did not do penance from the works of their hands, that they should not adore devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

[21] Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts. (Apocalypse Chapter 9, verses 13-21)

With the Sixth Angel’s Trumpet, we are introduced to the most severe chastisement so far. St. John himself seems to expect disbelief at the vastness of it, for when he announces that the army of horsemen numbers “20,000 times 10,000”, that is, 200,000,000, he quickly asserts, “And I heard the number of them”, thus confirming this number is from the Holy Ghost, and not his own conjecture.

Sculpture in Vatican Hall portraying the Conciliar/ Modernist Vision of their anti-Church.

The Great Altar is Christ our Savior,  and it is He who who commands the four fallen angels be released. That these angels are fallen is clear because they have been bound. That Jesus is allowing them to be free is evidence of His justice, which has been so long mocked with false mercy of hypocrites. The Great Altar emphasises Christ’s perfect sacrifice for us on Calvary and in the true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. This vision is directly related to the abuses of the Mass, such as stripping it of its sacrificial nature, and the abuses of the faith, carried out by the leaders of the Church, those who are most called to protect, promote and defend the Faith.

Note:   Although Fr. H.B. Kramer believed the Great Altar to refer to the religious orders, the passage of time has proved that this is not the case. The once-great orders have succumbed to the withering “Springtime” of Vatican II.  Therefore,  Fr. Berry’s understanding that the Great Altar refers to Our Savior and His Sacrifice of the Mass is the correct interpretation. Both Kramer and Berry believed the Fallen Star to have been Martin Luther; but now we see that Bergoglio’s Reformation within the Church far surpasses Luther’s, which initially occurred without the institutional Church.

Indeed, the Bergoglian Reformation actually began with the disobedient Popes such as John XXIII, Paul VI and by now has reached its apotheosis in  Pope  Francis who has superseded by far the heresies spawned by Luther, and brought heresy and apostasy into the very heights of the Church.

And so, at the behest of the Voice from the Great Altar, the four angels from beneath the Euphrates are loosed upon mankind. As we have remarked before, four is a number of universality, and indicates how extensive this woe will be. Father Sylvester Berry believes these four angels may be the same four angels of Chapter 7, “to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea” and who were commanded not to hurt the earth, the sea or the trees until the servants of God were signed on their foreheads. (Apoc. 7, 2-3). I will expand on this later, if able.

Fr. Berry remarks that the increasing severity of chastisements corresponds with the increase of iniquity. These accelerating woes portend the nearness of the coming of the Antichrist. This woe is announced for a very definite time, i.e., “an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year”, thus emphasising that the precise day and hour is determined by God alone. And the task? “For to kill the third part of men.”

Fatima, Vatican II and the Chastisement, 2

We offer the following post once more – it’s been one of our most widely circulated articles. I hope you will find it useful.

For those who have asked, here is our third installment. Previous posts were Fatima, Vatican II and the Chastisement and Seven Trumpets. Like many others in these dark and confused times, I read (and reread!)  the Apocalypse and books of Catholic prophecy by approved Catholic authors. Today, we have the benefit of a perspective that includes more history than that which was available to previous exegetes of the Apocalypse. In particular, we have the Message of Fatima, from the Queen of Heaven herself, plus the benefit of what we have observed and learned about the Second Vatican Council and its effects on the Church and the world. And with every passing day, Pope Francis and his cohort make the apostasy of the faith ever clearer.

In this series of posts, I hope to look at a few passages from St. John’s Apocalypse in the light of recent history. For our purposes, the term ‘recent’ refers to the events a little before Our Lady of the Rosary’s visits to Fatima in 1917 and on up to the present day, that is to the Synod and its sequelae. I am no expert in this, but simply offer these thoughts as an opportunity to get a discussion going. From what readers tell me, there is a real need for this, and if we can at least get people discussing it, I hope we can help spread the message of Fatima and prepare for what is to come. If you can improve on this, please be sure that I will support you, especially with my prayers. I do welcome all helpful criticism and contributions to the discussion. My email is in the sidebar.

Let’s start with Chapter 8.

[1] And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven, as it were for half an hour. [2] And I saw seven angels standing in the presence of God; and there were given to them seven trumpets. [3] And another angel came, and stood before the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given to him much incense, that he should offer of the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar, which is before the throne of God. [4] And the smoke of the incense of the prayers of the saints ascended up before God from the hand of the angel. [5] And the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it on the earth, and there were thunders and voices and lightnings, and a great earthquake.

[6] And the seven angels, who had the seven trumpets, prepared themselves to sound the trumpet. [7] And the first angel sounded the trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mingled with blood, and it was cast on the earth, and the third part of the earth was burnt up, and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. [8] And the second angel sounded the trumpet: and as it were a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood: [9] And the third part of those creatures died, which had life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed. [10] And the third angel sounded the trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, burning as it were a torch, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters:

[11] And the name of the star is called Wormwood. And the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. [12] And the fourth angel sounded the trumpet, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars, so that the third part of them was darkened, and the day did not shine for a third part of it, and the night in like manner. [13] And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth: by reason of the rest of the voices of the three angels, who are yet to sound the trumpet.

Father Herman Kramer in his Book of Destiny  explains that the angels exemplify the invisible decrees of God, “for they later at fore-ordained moments blow the trumpets … to announce the beginning of scourges that punish infidelity. … The trumpets announce the advent of judgements. The prophets call themselves God’s trumpets when they announce the coming judgements, wars and enemies.”

Apocalypse 12, Part 1

Today, we return to Chapter 12, verses 1-9 of St. John’s Apocalypse, to illustrate the Vatican’s deception with regards to the Third Secret – and also, we hope, to prepare us for the coming events, as foretold by the same prophecies.

[1] And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: [2] And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered. [3] And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems: [4] And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son. [5] And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to His throne.

[6] And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that there they should feed her a thousand two hundred sixty days. [7] And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels: [8] And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. [9] And that great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world; and he was cast unto the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

Sister Lucia is reported to have said that the Third Secret concerns the Apocalypse, particularly Chapters 8 and 12. This is confirmed by two of the Conciliar Popes, Paul VI and John Paul II, in their words at Fatima.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, Pope Paul VI made a pilgrimage there where he delivered an address, “Signum Magnum” or Great Sign on May 13, 1967. In that address, he declared,

The great sign which the Apostle John saw in Heaven, “a woman clothed with the sun,” is interpreted by the sacred Liturgy, not without foundation, as referring to the most Blessed Mary, the mother of all men by the grace of Christ the Redeemer. … On the occasion of the religious ceremonies which are taking place at this time in honor of the Virgin Mother of God in Fatima, Portugal, where She is venerated by countless numbers of the faithful for Her motherly and compassionate heart, we wish to call the attention of all sons of the Church once more to the indissoluble link between the spiritual motherhood of Mary … and the duties of redeemed men toward Her, the Mother of the Church.” (Pope Paul VI, Apostolic Letter, “Signum Magnum”, that is, Great Sign)

The Fifth Trumpet Part 2

Continuing with Apocalypse 9, 1-11.

And there were given to them seven trumpets...
And there were given to them seven trumpets…
