A Message to the Laodiceans

Pope Francis, bless his heart, never lets an opportunity pass to give scandal to the faithful and offend our dear Lord Jesus Christ just a bit more.  This Christmas he has outdone himself utterly! Note that instead of the heavenly star leading us to the creche at Bethlehem, we have a star falling downward over a desolate jumble of images which distract from the birth of Our Lord. The Blessed Virgin is depicted spraddle-legged like a coarse woman, lacking in dignity and piety but the obvious “star of the show” is the homo-erotic man posing in the typical, over-the-top  style affected by the Lavender Mafia, who now flaunt their triumph in the Bergoglian Reformation of the Vatican..

Bergoglio’s Vatican Celebrates the Fallen Star

 

Thus Pope Francis gives us a reminder that Advent is a penitential season.  This chaotic, disturbing image which the Vatican presents in place of  a respectful  commemoration of the true Nativity of Christ our Savior is an excellent  image of this false church of the Bergoglian Reformation which has eclipsed the true Church. The backdrop of Bergoglio’s “Nativity” (Of what??) appears to be a ruined facade, and behind that backdrop is the Vatican, occupied by the Enemy at present. Actually, an iconic image, isn’t it? It is no wonder that the  Abbey of Montevergine, which donated the innovative ‘Nativity of Mercy,’ houses the Marian image that has been adopted as patroness by LGBT activists in Italy, according to Lifesite News’s Diane Montagna, here.

At Return to Fatima,  we have asserted many times (here)that when the popes ignored the Message of Fatima and refused to obey Our Lady of the Rosary, the hierarchy of the Church began to fall into error; until at last we saw Pope John XXIII fulfill the prophecy of  Apocalypse 8 as Wormwood. For it was he who made bitter the sacred waters of the faith, causing many souls to die; and who, of course, is hailed as a “saint” by the modernist occupiers.

In our post, “The Fifth Trumpet“, we explained that the second Fallen Star is Pope Paul VI who opened the bottomless pit, and brought in the smoke of satan, allowing the demons of hell access to the heart of the Church,  This was also foreseen by Pope Leo XIII who saw the Vatican literally crawling with demons, swarming all over it.

Our archives contain many posts applying Apocalypse 8-13 to these exact times. We also have articles about Father Malachi Martin’s warning of the enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican. Now note this well: The preliminary enthronement of Lucifer which occurred in the time of Paul VI, the second Fallen Star, had to be completed by the enthronement within 50 years of Lucifer within the Vatican. Not by proxy as occurred the first time, but fully and completely within the Vatican itself.

We posited that this was done shortly after Bergoglio took possession. According to Fr. Malachi Martin, unless this was accomplished within 50 years, the ancient enemy would have failed. Now it is self-evident that the Ancient Enemy has not  failed under Pope Francis but has gotten ever bolder.

Those who doubt this have only to observe the satanic mockery presented as a Nativity Scene at the Bergoglian Vatican this year.  And see the Fallen Star enshrined there for all to hail the Ancient Enemy who now believes that he rules.

And now, what next? What do you think may happen? Perhaps we may find some insight if we return to the Apocalypse. The second Fallen Star opened the bottomless pit (the preliminary enthronement), which allowed the smoke of Satan into the Church, and brought into the heart of the Church  the locusts, predatory modernists and sodomites which attack the Church in her doctrines and her practice. This action, initiated by Pope Paul VI was in time brought to fruition by the election of Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis.  And he has fulfilled the plan almost perfectly, as we see in the Nativity Scene of 2017, exactly one hundred years after our Lady warned of this in her true message at Fatima.

Returning to Apocalypse 9, after the time of the Fifth Trumpet (Paul VI, culminating in Bergoglio), comes the Sixth Trumpet.

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.

And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. 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. 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.  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.  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.

Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts. (Apoc. 9).

And so we see an intimation of what is to come, that is the Horsemen. We explained who these horsemen were in our earlier post, The Sixth Angel. Please note this. This shall come about precisely because of the Laodicean indifference of the majority of Catholics.

The Laodiceans who continue to occupy the pews in this new Church of Bergoglio defend the Bergoglian Nativity Scene, steadfastly refusing to see what is clear to all who have not abandoned the faith. As St. John states in the Apocalypse, the locusts cannot harm those whose faith is strong, that is green, living things, (souls remaining in the state of grace) but only those whose faith has grown lukewarm, that is Laodiceans, to whom Our Lord says,

“…Thou art neither cold, nor hot. I would thou wert cold, or hot. But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest: I am rich, and made wealthy, and have need of nothing: and knowest not, that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. … Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance.  Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my voice, and open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.” (link)

This is the time of winnowing as we noted in our post, “Cardinal Manning on Bergoglio’s Reformation“,

“These are times of sifting. Our Divine Lord is standing in the Church: “His fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly cleanse His (own) and He will gather the grain into His barn, and will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” It is a time of trial, when “some of the learned shall fall,” and those only shall be saved who are steadfast to the end.

With each new assault on the Faith, many faithful Catholics are outraged and angered and as the predations of this papacy continue, many lose faith. We must not lose faith! Let your outrage be the impetus for renewing your consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Please reread Our Lord’s message to the Laodiceans above. Now is the time to open our hearts to the necessary chastisement!  When God chastens us, the proper response is repentance in humility and obedience – not belligerent revolt. If we accept this spiritual chastisement as the merciful work of Our Lord; accepting it as Sister Josefa Menendez accepted the Crown of Thorns offered her by Our Lord Himself, we too shall be victorious over this deluge of sin and misery. For after the Passion and Death, there will come the glorious Resurrection.

Pope Francis and his Lavender Mafia have been allowed to obscure the true Nativity with their disgusting mockery, but we the faithful children of Mary see the Nativity as it is, for it is imprinted on our hearts.

And she shall bring forth a son: and thou shalt call His name JESUS. For He shall save His people from their sins.

 

Remember always, “Pray the Rosary and confound satan and all his works and pomps”.

“Our Lord Jesus Christ has always defended the honor of His Mother.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima to Father Fuentes)

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

“By thy pure and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, obtain for me the conversion of Russia, Spain, Portugal, Europe, and the whole world.” (Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us this prayer;  it is  an essential part of the Fatima Message.)

Our Lady of the Rosary, help of Christians, Victorious over all heresies, lead us to victory!

~ by evensong and peregrine, for love of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the most Holy Rosary, Queen of our hearts.

V: Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin!
R: Give me strength against thine enemies!

The Fifth Trumpet

Today, we will review Apocalypse 9, using primarily  “The Apocalypse of St. John” by Father Sylvester Berry and “The Book of Destiny”  by Father Herman Bernard Kramer.  Fr. Berry identifies this passage as “one of the most important in the whole Apocalypse. It foretells the first woe announced by the flying eagle (of the previous chapter) – the conditions and events destined to usher in the reign of the Antichrist.” Chapter 8 was covered in “Fatima, Vatican II and the Chastisement 2“.

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

Apocalypse Chapter 9, v. 1-12

[1] 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. [2] 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. [3] 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: [4] 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. [5] 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.

[6] And in those days men shall seek death, and shall not find it: and they shall desire to die, and death shall fly from them. [7] And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle: and on their heads were, as it were, crowns like gold: and their faces were as the faces of men. [8] And they had hair as the hair of women; and their teeth were as lions: [9] And they had breastplates as breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was as the noise of chariots and many horses running to battle. [10] And they had tails like to scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had over them [11] A king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans, [12] One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter.

 

After noting that the Fallen Star of Chapter 9 is “an apostate bishop or priest”, Fr. Kramer remarks that the key given to him indicates a divinely given power to open the pit, releasing the smoke and the locusts. The definite article used in this passage means that there is but one key, therefore this key to release what is in the pit is only given to the Fallen Star. In this regard, recall our earlier post, “Malachi Martin on the Apostasy of the Faith“, we said:

Cupich’s Eyelash

The Synod, as we pointed out numerous times over the past year, did nothing other than what was clearly predicted, and the media response, too, was entirely predictable. No traditional site expected the Synod to “change doctrine”. Instead, we all said to be prepared for actions to undermine it in the name of a false mercy, and facing “reality”. But, before the Synod even began, Pope Francis had already issued his disastrous Moto Proprios gutting the sacrament of matrimony. He had stacked the Synod with his chosen pro-sodomite prelates. He had publicly proclaimed Kasper’s heresy as “serene theology”, almost from the start. So, it is not as if we didn’t know…

Then why am I moping around with that kicked-in-the-gut feeling? I think it’s because deep inside, I had hoped the months of prayer and small penances we all did, would somehow turn things around. I had really hoped that from Poland, Africa, Uzbekistan or somewhere we would see strong Catholic Bishops and Cardinals rise to defend the faith. But in the end, despite the bluster of the opposition, the Lord of the World still has his way. And so I go around feeling sick at heart.

The thing that clinched it for me was Cupich’s eyelash, you know, the video of him lecturing all of us on the true meaning of the sacrament of penance.  In the alternate universe of CupichWorld (next door to DisneyWorld?) reconciliation not only does not mean forgiving sin (and thus calling for atonement), but is based on the anatomical term for eyelash, “cilia”. No, I did not get that from Mad Magazine or The Onion. Unless you’ve been away from the web, you have seen the Lifesite News/Voice of the Family video, but here it is, if you are really a glutton for punishment.

Now, you can feel as sick at heart as I do! That has to be the saddest thing I have seen from this poor man who, come to think of it, does bear a strong resemblance to Alfred E. Neuman, doesn’t he?

Reconciliation? It's just an eyelash, silly!
Reconciliation? It’s just an eyelash, silly!

As preposterous as that is, this is where the Institutional Church is now. And still, Catholics will not see what a caricature this whole Merciful®  FrancisChurch schtick has become.

I an effort to cleanse the palate of Cupich,  we’ll follow up with a good video from Remnant TV with Michael Matt and Dr. John Rao:

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!
Immaculate Heart of Mary, crush the head of satan and restore the Faith!
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done!

Please remember, pray the Rosary and confound the devil!
