Miserabilism demands that the Church and her hierarchy divest of all properties and splendor and become truly indigent. It was evident particularly in the Protestant revolution which hated the beauty of Catholic art, architecture, music and all that caused the Church to have dignity. Miserabilism would strip the Church of her beauty, both spiritual and temporal in the name of a false humility.This heretical tendency is among the many that were part of the revolution of Vatican II and now reaches its full flowering in miserabilist Pope Francis, the First Humble Pope in History®.
Though all else fail, the Immaculate will prevail!
Msgr. Eugene Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, made this astonishing prophecy on the future upheaval in the Church:
“I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucy of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul. … I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject Her ornaments and make Her feel remorse for Her historical past.
“A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, ‘Where have they taken Him?'” (Roche, Pie XII Devant L’Historie, p. 52-53, quoted by Father Kramer in “The Devil’s Final Battle”, 2002, Good Counsel Publications. Thorough documentation on this quote, including the date, 1933, can be found at the website of Atila Sinke Guimaraes, Tradition in Action.)
The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception was defined and proclaimed in the 19th century, and early in the 20th century, our Lord Jesus Christ sent His Mother to request devotion to her Immaculate Heart as a remedy for the increasing heresies of scientism and modernism, the increasing apostasy from the faith. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is absolutely inimical to the Lord of the World, Satan, who is at war always and everywhere with the Church, the Bride of Christ, and with her Mother. Exorcists have amply demonstrated this intense hatred which Satan bears for the Blessed Virgin Mary, and his impotence where she is concerned. This is documented in the writings of Fathers Gabriele Amorth, Malachi Martin and Leon Cristiani.
