The Gates of Hell

“Organizers …  kept the church doors closed tightly during Bonino’s talk to prevent the sound of prayer from entering the church.” (Lifesite News)

Why were Catholics shut out of their own church for offering prayers of reparation, while abortionist Emma Bonino was honored within the church? Who is Emma Bonino? Pope Francis calls her  a “forgotten great” and has commended her support of unbridled islamic invasion of Europe. In her talk at the church,  Bonino asserted  the flood of immigrants is  necessary to supplement Italy’s low birthrate, although she is silent regarding her role in the death of Italy’s future.

This brings to mind St. Padre Pio’s prophetic quote,

“The day that people lose their horror for abortion will be the most terrible day for humanity. Abortion is not only a homicide but also a suicide. … The suicide of the human race will be understood by those who will see the earth populated by the elderly and depopulated of children: burnt as a desert,”  (St. Padre Pio)

Let’s destroy the family!

Indeed, Bonino, from a small start with her death-dealing bicycle pump, and her own abortion, can claim magnificent success: already over 6 million Italian babies have been eliminated.  As she led the feminist revolution in Italy in the mid-seventies,  Bonino’s rallying cry was, “No longer wives, mothers and daughters! Let’s destroy the family!(Lifesite News)

Catholic media report that the Bishop responsible for the church which hosted Bonino was silent. Of course he was. Pope Francis is not so merciful if one dares to assert the Catholic faith against his cronies.  And so we see that under the Bishop of Rome, within the church  the culture of death and corruption reigns:  Victor Fernandez, Luigi Capozzi, Battista Ricca, Emma Bonino,  within the church and the doors tightly  shut against the prayers of the faithful. Thus we see now the “sacrilege, outrage and indifference which so offend Our Lord”, and St. Michael, the Angel of Fatima warned about.  And so we too pray with those cast out from the occupied Church.

“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the same Son Jesus Christ, present in the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. And by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

June 22, 2017, What Now?

We offer today’s updated repost in response to questions posed by concerned readers. It is my attempt to explain that although Pope Francis gives every appearance of being the Apostate Pope of the Third Secret, and thus an indicator of how rapidly we are advancing towards the culmination of the material and spiritual chastisements, we must strengthen our trust in the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to whom the victory has been given.  My update follows at the end of the post.

When asked if it was possible for the Cardinals to elect a heretical Pope, Father Malachi Martin responded,

Yes, we could have an apostate as Pope. In that case, we would be into something terrible. We would be into something which is nightmarish. It would test the faith of the greatest saint. … Your faith would be battered to pieces. If that happens, they (The Kingdom of Darkness) would have the prize and everything would have to go underground. We are, indeed, on our way to becoming, as Paul VI described in his misery, an infinitesimally small part of humanity. (Fr. Malachi Martin)

In another quote,  Fr. Martin expanded on his prophecy about this pope:

Roman Catholics will then have the spectacle of a pope validly elected who cuts the entire visible body of the Church loose from the traditional unity and the papacy-oriented apostolic structure that the Church has hitherto always believed and taught was divinely established. The shudder that will shake the Roman Catholic body in that day will be the shudder of its death agony. … Many will accept the new regime. Many will resist. All will be fragmented. There will be no one on earth to hold the fractionating members of the visible Roman Catholic body together as a living compact organization.”

Admittedly, there are creditable doubts about the validity of Pope  Francis’s papacy, nevertheless, he is the current occupant. And he continues in his stated mission to make a mess of the Church. This past Thursday, this Pope of Affliction continued to prove that he is, in tragic fact, the Apostate Pope foretold by Fr. Martin those many years ago. At a recent address in St. John Lateran, the Bishop of Rome once again struck at the roots of the Church’s doctrine.

The Pope of Irreversible Change
The Pope of Irreversible Change

When asked about the “crisis in marriage”, Bergoglio responded with an anecdote about a young man who wanted to become a priest “but only for 10 years”, stating that, “it’s the culture of the provisional”. He then went on, “It’s provisional, and because of this the great majority of our sacramental marriages are null. Because they say “yes, for the rest of my life!” but they don’t know what they are saying.” He then added, “I’ve seen a lot of fidelity in these cohabitations, and I am sure that this is a real marriage, they have the grace of a real marriage because of their fidelity,…”

Note how he skillfully worked in doubts about the validity of Holy Orders while also undercutting the validity of Sacramental marriage! Clever, no? Although even Fox news has noticed that the Pope is doing incalculable harm to the Church and should be made to resign, the great number of catholics prefer to deny the obvious. I heard them described once as “those who gather butterflies on Mount Calvary”. Right at the scene of the crucifixion of the Bride of Christ, they are following illusions, intently ignoring the Passion of the Church. In an earlier post, we wrote of this,

“Since the vast majority of Catholics do not respond to the Chastisement of the faith, nor now, even the open and outright apostasy of the faith in this post-synodal Church of Mercy®, the “New Church” instituted by Pope Francis, God will most likely allow the final stages of the Chastisement. This will be the Chastisement of the material world, with immense suffering and in which the few survivors will envy the dead. But it will take most men by surprise because, since they refuse to follow the command of Our Lady for penance and prayer, their intellects and spirits are darkened. …”

This is the time foretold in the Apocalypse, as Sister Lucia warned us and many approved prophecies before her. The “great dragon, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan” will be cast out of the Church. As Malachi Martin warned us, this malignant force which currently controls the Vatican cannot be dislodged by human means. It is supernatural and draws its immense strength from the Lord of this World. In nearly 100 years, faithless and lukewarm catholics have failed to obey the warnings of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Mother, thus giving free rein to the evil entrenched in the Vatican.

What now? Two thoughts on this from two holy women:

From Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora:

Behold, my daughter, such great ungodliness.” Blessed Elizabeth then saw “apostates brazenly trying to rip her most holy Son from her arms. Confronted with such an outrage, the Mother of God ceased to ask mercy for the world, and instead requested justice from the Eternal Father. Clothed in His inexorable Justice and full of indignation, He turned to the world. At that moment all nature went into convulsions, the world lost its normal order and was filled with the most terrible calamity imaginable. This will be something so deplorable and atrocious that it will reduce the world to the ultimate depths of desolation.”

From St. Hildegard von Bingen:

Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with want and famine. The great nation (*) in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent by an earthquake, storm and tidal waves will be devastated. It will be divided, and in great part submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea, and lose its colonies in the east through a Tiger and a Lion.

The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues. [After the] great Comet, the great nation (*) will be devastated by earthquakes, storms, and great waves of water, causing much want and plagues. The ocean will also flood many other countries, so that all coastal cities will live in fear, with many destroyed. All sea coast cities will be fearful and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of these cities does a person live according to the laws of God. “Peace will return to Europe when the white flower again takes possession of the throne of France.” [St. Hildegard von Bingen]

*Many believe this refers to USA.

Although there is no chance any longer of stopping or even mitigating the culmination of the Chastisement, we must return vigorously to the true message of Fatima. Right now, we must resolve to pray at a minimum, one Rosary a day for the specific intention of reparation for the blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the Consecration of Russia. Our Lord told us that the Pope would do it, “but it will be late”. He also cautioned us to pray very much for the Pope. Once the current occupant is cleansed from the See of Peter, we may hope for the promised Holy Pope who will consecrate Russia and restore the Faith. but there will be much bloodshed and violence in the interim.

Jesus asked that we honor the Image of His Sacred Heart!

As a footnote, I have lost many readers through my opposition to the “Divine Mercy” devotion. For those who remain, I urge you to use Our Lady’s Rosary only for that use which she asked for, and to always keep in mind that Our Lord Jesus Christ requested that the image of His Sacred Heart be the object of devotion.

Therefore, to waste our time with novel devotions to a heartless image is a great offense to Him. Our Lady of Fatima warned us to stop offending Him. She repeated this at Akita, after the official Church attempted to silence her message at Fatima. She emphasized her warning by stating that fire would fall from the sky and the survivors would envy the dead.

Readers, I do not see how any of this could possibly be made any more clear. Catholics have become willfully blind and will follow one another to destruction. We must pray the Rosary, we must fast, do penance and beseech heaven right now for mercy. We are at Golgotha and the Church is in Her Passion. This is not the time to go wandering around in search of other “revelations”, other devotions which contradict the true devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

NOTE  22 June, 2017: A year has passed and we are ever more advanced on this perilous decline, but we must not lose heart because we belong to the very Mother of God,  who assures us,  “I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.”

And so we trust in her and through her, in the infinite mercy of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has assured us that despite the lateness of the hour, it is never too late to implore His mercy with a humble and contrite heart. 

I have not written enough about how we are to achieve this “humble and contrite heart” and have been rightfully called to account by several readers.  I hope to remedy this soon, but in the meantime, offer you briefly:

Our Lady of the Rosary has given us the remedy: It is her rosary! But then you say, “I cannot keep my focus, I am plagued with terrible distractions, it is such a battle!”  Yes! It is as battle and each time we return to our prayers, spurning the distractions, we bring great blessings for poor sinners. But, to help you focus,  I have offered remedies:  such as minimizing the internet, eliminating television and other blather, fasting, and arising at night or an hour earlier each day for quiet, uninterrupted time with Our Lady and her Rosary.  Still , they are not sufficient for some readers, it is claimed.  I must admit, I have difficulty believing that those methods, if assiduously followed have proven unfruitful; but if so, please consider that St. Joseph has never at any time failed to help anyone who turned to him with trust and asked that he assist them to pray the Rosary attentively.

Please simply ask St. Joseph to help you pray your Rosary. If you start your day, as early as possible – you must get up earlier than the devil, as Sister used to tell us when we were children! – so get up early, ask St. Joseph to help you prepare your heart and mind, and then pray your first Rosary of the day, the Joyful Mysteries are his especial forte! Trust in him! You will not be disappointed. That is why he appeared at Fatima and he will bring you peace and many blessings!

If you still have questions, of course you may email me; however, be aware that at present, I am unable to respond to individual emails due to constraints of time and energy. I appreciate emails and will endeavor to respond in posts or on the “About” page when indicated.

For information on the Message of Fatima and the requisite devotions, please see our post: The Message of Fatima. Thank you.

Dear readers, thank you for reading. May God be with you all and Mary keep you close to her Immaculate Heart!

Please, pray the Rosary and confound the devil!

†  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, guardian of the Holy Family, protect our families, protect our priests!

†  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

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

The Figure of a Woman, anticipating 2017

St. Hildegard’s Vision of the Five Beasts includes another vision, that which she refers to as, “The Figure of a Woman”. This is the strange figure in the woodcut below:

https://www.returntofatima.org
From Vision Eleven, Scivias, The Figure of a Woman.

 

And I saw again the figure of a woman whom I had previously seen in front of the altar that stands before the Eyes of God; she stood in the same place, but now I saw her from the waist down. And from her waist to the place that denotes the female, she had various scaly blemishes; and in that latter place was a black and monstrous head. It had fiery eyes and ears like an ass’ and its nostrils and mouth were like a lion’s; it opened wide its jowls and terribly clashed its horrible iron-colored teeth. And from its head down to her knees, the figure was white and red, as if bruised by many beatings; and from her knees to her tendons where they joined her heels, which appeared white, she was covered with blood.

And behold! That monstrous head moved from its place with such a great shock that the figure of the woman was shaken through all her limbs. And a great mass of excrement adhered to the head; and it raised itself up upon a mountain and tried to ascend the height of Heaven. And behold, there came suddenly a thunderbolt, which struck that head with such great force that it fell from the mountain and yielded up its spirit in death. And a reeking cloud enveloped the whole mountain, which wrapped the head in such filth that the people who stood by were thrown into the greatest terror. And that cloud remained around the mountain for a while longer.

The people who stood there, perceiving this, were shaken with great fear, and said to one another: “Alas, alas! What is this? What do you think this was? Alas, wretches that we are! Who will help us, and who will deliver us? For we know not how we were deceived. O Almighty God, have mercy on us! Let us return; let us hasten to the covenant of Christ’s Gospel; for ah, ah, ah! We have been bitterly deceived! And lo, the feet of the figure of the woman glowed white, shining with a splendor greater than the sun’s.

Signs of Hildegard’s Fifth Era

Guest post today is from Reid Turner’s Blog, The Five Beasts, St. Hildegard’s Vision of the Last Days.

Four Signs to Look for that Will Reveal St. Hildegard’s Fifth Era has Arrived

The five symbolic beasts in St. Hildegard’s vision represent unique and brief historical ages which occur in a specific sequence. They also represent a particular evil evident in the social context of each period. This affliction of evil is engineered by Satan and intended to progressively damage the Church in preparation of the coming of the Antichrist.

In my book, The Five Beasts of St. Hildegard: Prophetic Symbols of Modern Society, I demonstrate that the first three eras have already passed and that we are currently in the latter half of the fourth era, that of the Black Pig.

Four signs will clearly manifest to us that the present era is ending and the final era, the Grey Wolf, is emerging:

1. A change in the world’s geopolitical composition.

The five periods represent first and foremost separate historical eras. Dividing the 20th century into separate eras is very easy for historians to accomplish (it is not always so simple); the years 1914, 1945, and 1991 were natural divisions based on a change in the map of Europe, as well as its power structure. Western Europe since 1945 has been protected by America through the NATO alliance and the presence of American bases. Since 1991 and the fall of the Soviet Empire, America’s been the sole hegemon in the region. America will soon lose that privilege; the writing is on the wall. I explain why in an earlier post, The End of American Hegemony.)

2. Political turmoil in Western Europe.

In Hildegard’s description of the era she refers to revolutions but does not describe them in any detail. She makes no mention here of wars between countries, but perhaps hints at them in a later chapter in Scivias. Some Europeans can be expected to violently turn on their governments as the era of the Grey Wolf begins.

3. Violent uprisings against the wealthy and powerful.

This is probably connected to the previous sign. Hildegard explains that the motive here is economic, not political; class warfare will break out in many cities. She says the reason, and the particular evil of this era, is greed. People will turn on the rich and plunder. This will be evident from the very beginning of the era to its end (see my earlier post: The Symbolism of the Ropes).

In the U.S., the last time the top 10% had such a large share of the nations income was in the years leading up to the 1929 market crash and Great Depression. Today, the prices of art, jewelry, classic cars, and other stores of value are all breaking records. This is evident in Europe as well, where, in a number of countries austerity measures have been forced on their populations by authorities from the European Monetary Union. Just follow what’s happening in Greece; it’s not hard to see how that situation could lead to a major outbreak of violence.

4. Persecution of Christians.

This may or may not occur at the beginning of the era; Hildegard does not say. But she describes clearly a time of Christian persecution that is distinct from the later persecution by the Antichrist. The rapid radicalization of Muslims in Europe together with their rapidly growing population should be a warning that persecution may be coming (see my earlier post: The Era of the Grey Wolf and Islam).

As always, we welcome your thoughts. The book is a quick read and I recommend it as a welcome addition to our growing awareness of the signs of the times. I must note, however, that I do not believe we are in “the last times”. I believe firmly in the prophecy of Our Blessed Mother at Fatima, in other words:

We are rapidly approaching the culmination of the Chastisement, a horrific period where all mankind, the good as well as the bad, will realize the Justice of God, after spurning His mercy for so long. See previous posts on that subject, they are numerous. The Chastisement will end in a miraculous manner which will convert all survivors to the true Church and will show forth the splendor and glory of the Immaculata. There will be a period of peace of unknown length, although probably not much more than a few generations, after which there will be another falling away from the faith, followed by the coming of the anti-Christ. 

So, the time of the anti-Christ is not imminent, in my opinion. Once we have the fulfillment of the chastisement and the period of peace, the the era antichrist should begin.

Revelation is a fascinating subject, but we cannot let it distract us from the purpose of this blog, which is devotion to the Message of the Immaculate Mother of God at Fatima.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done!

The Vision of the Five Beasts

St. Hildegard von Bingen was an extraordinary woman and her writings enlighten and mystify us even today. In an earlier post or two, I have spoken of her prophecies which became somewhat famous when Pope Benedict raised her to sainthood and quoted from her writings in his address to the Curia in December, 2010.

Recently, Reid Turner has written a book about a particular prophecy of St. Hildegard’s, one which has so far baffled me. When he contacted me about his book, I purchased it in the kindle edition, but have not yet completed it. The book is “The Five Beasts of St. Hildegard, Prophetic Symbols of Modern Society”. Mr. Turner has graciously granted permission for us to post a chapter from his book here, but before we do so, it seems appropriate to provide one post on the vision itself.

From Vision Eleven, Scivias
From Vision Eleven, Scivias

I have experienced a rather steep learning curve with St. Hildegard’s visions. They are very vivid and just somehow, so alien that I find them difficult. I hope you don’t find them so and that you will benefit from them. And so, today we provide St. Hildegard’s Vision of the Five Beasts. It is from Vision Eleven of Book Three in Scivias. Please share your insights, we would love to hear them!

And I heard a voice from Heaven saying to me:

All things that are on earth hasten to their temporal end, and the world droops toward its end, oppressed by the weakening of its forces and its many tribulations and calamities. But the Bride of My Son, very troubled for her children both by the forerunners of the son of perdittion and by the destroyer himself, will never be crushed, no matter how much they attack her. But at the end of time she will rise up stronger than ever, and become more beautiful and more glorious; and so she will move sweetly and delightfully to the embraces of her Beloved. And this is mystically signified by the vision you are seeing. For you look to the North and behold! Five beasts stand there. These are the five ferocious epochs of temporal rule, brought about by the desires of the flesh from which the taint of sin is never absent, and they savagely rage against each other.

St. Hildegard’s Vision of the FrancisChurch

From the many prophecies we have covered so far, (here, here, here, here, and here)  we can understand that we are approaching the calamitous finale of the age of apostasy which began with Martin Luther, and which progressed through the disobedience of the Popes and hierarchy, until the church reached its absolute nadir in Humble Pope Francis/Danneels. His perversion of the virtues of poverty, humility and mercy will bring modernist miserabilism to its logical devastating conclusion and will result in the completion of the chastisement, and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who is destined to usher in a reign of peace and restoration of the faith.

But for those who ask, we offer the following from St. Hildegard von Bingen about the Church. It was, quite remarkably, used in an address by Pope Benedict XVI to the Roman Curia back in 2010, probably around the time he became aware of the extensive machinations of the St. Gallen group …

The Church will be harshly reproached for many vices, fornication, murder and rapine.How? Because those who should love her will violently persecute her..

St. Hildegard’s Vision of the Church

In the year of our Lord’s incarnation 1170, I had been lying on my sick-bed for a long time when, fully conscious in body and in mind, I had a vision of a woman of such beauty that the human mind is unable to comprehend. She stretched in height from earth to heaven. Her face shone with exceeding brightness and her gaze was fixed on heaven. She was dressed in a dazzling robe of white silk and draped in a cloak, adorned with stones of great price. On her feet she wore shoes of onyx. But her face was stained with dust, her robe was ripped down the right side, her cloak had lost its sheen of beauty and her shoes had been blackened. And she herself, in a voice loud with sorrow, was calling to the heights of heaven, saying, ‘Hear, heaven, how my face is sullied; mourn, earth, that my robe is torn; tremble, abyss, because my shoes are blackened!’

And she continued: ‘I lay hidden in the heart of the Father until the Son of Man, who was conceived and born in virginity, poured out His blood. With that same blood as His dowry, He made me His betrothed.

For my Bridegroom’s wounds remain fresh and open as long as the wounds of men’s sins continue to gape. And Christ’s wounds remain open because of the sins of priests. They tear my robe, since they are violators of the Law, the Gospel and their own priesthood; they darken my cloak by neglecting, in every way, the precepts which they are meant to uphold; my shoes too are blackened, since priests do not keep to the straight paths of justice, which are hard and rugged, or set good examples to those beneath them. Nevertheless, in some of them I find the splendour of truth.’

And I heard a voice from heaven which said: ‘This image represents the Church. For this reason, O you who see all this and who listen to the word of lament, proclaim it to the priests who are destined to offer guidance and instruction to God’s people and to whom, as to the apostles, it was said: go into all the world and preach the Gospel to the whole creation’ (Mk 16:15)”

Make a mess!
Make a mess!
And Francis grinned and said, “¡Hagan lío!”

 

There has never been a better time to  Pray the Rosary with confidence and joy!

  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!
  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
  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!

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!

The Geneticist, Planned Parenthood and St. Hildegard

Dr. Jerome Lejeune is not very well known. There’s a good reason for that. At the very height of his career, he spoke out against scientists for using abortion against babies with birth defects. You see, Dr. Lejeune was a Catholic who lived his faith. Already, in his time, that was an act worthy of shunning.

First I’ll tell you a bit about him, and then you will understand why his name is anathema in what passes for the scientific community today.

"He that shall receive one such little child in My name, receiveth Me."
“He that shall receive one such little child in My name, receiveth Me.”

In July 1958, as he was studying chromosomes linked to Down syndrome, he discovered the existence of an additional chromosome on the 21st pair. With this remarkable and ground-breaking discovery, he renamed the condition trisomy 21 to accurately describe the genetic abnormality. Thus, Dr. Lejeune, was the first to establish a link between an intellectual disability and its genetic cause. Dr. Lejeune would go on to discover the genetic cause of Cri-du-Chat syndrome and to also advance understanding of Fragile X syndrome and others. Even while he pursued his investigations, he continued to assist families caring for disabled children. His research was not intended to destroy the lives of these children but to understand the condition in hopes of finding a remedy or at least to better their lives and that of the families who cared for them.

In 1962 he was honored in Washington, D.C. by President John F. Kennedy with the first Kennedy Prize for his research into genetic intellectual disability and for finding the genetic cause of Down syndrome. In 1969 he received the William Allen Award from the American Society of Human Genetics – the highest award possible for a geneticist. 

Unfortunately, when Dr. Lejeune traveled from France to the United States to receive his reward, he was not aware of the intentions of those who were honoring him. Dr. Lejeune soon realized that the prize was being awarded because his work enabled the successful testing which could detect trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) in mothers’ womb—thus in the United States, these tests were used to abort Trisomy babies.

This is how Professor Lejeune was rewarded and discovered to his dismay that the world was falling from under his feet, not only figuratively, but even literally during the presentation. For coincidentally, one of San Francisco’s famous seismic quakes shook the whole conference room causing him to reflect:

“At this moment, I understood that the world had revolved on its axis.”

So what were those rewarding him implying? That his research would be applied to exterminate children in their mother’s womb because they could not be like other children who were “normal” or “productive members of society.” Simply eliminate the unfit babies and you eliminate the “problem”. Such an attitude should be referred to as “chromosomic racism” and it is being applied today and even extended to the “problem” of the ecology, i.e., abort enough babies and the world will have its utopia here and now.

In his address to his colleagues Professor Lejeune said,

“…  Do not tell me, when you request to suppress these children, that you are not suppressing a human being … No! You are suppressing a human being who is not according to your norms, but do not deny it its human nature, which you allow to be quietly assassinated.” …

“…  Kill these children you wish to kill, but do not say that they are not children. … But watch out, watch out for playing the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Oh! I am not warning you against God’s anger, who is full of mercy. But I am warning you against nature, because nature is neither God nor a person, and when one tramples its laws, she punishes and punishes without pity. … Someday you will pay for what you are presently doing, but do not say that you have not been warned!”

No applause followed his brave speech. Instead, in a dead silence the professor descended from the podium and entered the crowd gathered to congratulate him but which now drew back from him as if he were a leper and refused to shake his hand. Note that this was within the timeframe of the radical changes in the Church and the world – The Fatima Effect – which occurred after Pope John’s disobedience in 1960.

Dr. Lejeune knew full well that speaking the truth is unforgivable in those circles, yet he sacrificed his career in what he knew was already a lost cause. But he also knew that his first loyalty is to Christ the King and in this ultimate battle against the Lord of this World, there can be no other choice. Dr. Lejeune’s foundation is still today refusing to fund or partner with anyone who uses fetal tissue of aborted babies in their research. For more information, see: Lejeuneusa.org.

Now, forty-six years later, we have ghoulish abortionists from Planned Parenthood openly selling body parts and even whole babies; what a fine alliance between science and capitalism! And our pontiff, instead of speaking out against these evils, hosts pro-abortion mayors. And so it goes.

Here’s an apt prophecy for you:

“Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with want and famine. The great nation (*) in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent  by an earthquake, storm and tidal waves will be devastated. It will be divided, and in great part submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea, and lose its colonies in the east through a Tiger and a Lion.

The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues. [After the] great Comet, the great nation (*) will be devastated by earthquakes, storms, and great waves of water, causing much want and plagues. The ocean will also flood many other countries, so that all coastal cities will live in fear, with many destroyed. All sea coast cities will be fearful and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of these cities does a person live according to the laws of God. “Peace will return to Europe when the white flower again takes possession of the throne of France.” [St. Hildegard von Bingen]

(*) Most probably America, don’t you think?

Although several readers have strongly disagreed with me about this, I fail to understand how my country, the United States of America, can not expect to be chastised not only for the the diabolic anti-sacrament of abortion, whose ghoulish activities are funded by our tax dollars to Planned Parenthood; but for pushing abortion, contraception and perversion all over the globe. Please note that this prophecy of Hildegard’s is only one of many similar ones which have been approved by the church in previous years. Also, note the similarities with the most recently released prophecy from Sister Lucia of Fatima. See here , and here.

This battle is spiritual, as Dr. Jerome Lejeune knew, and as any true (that is, traditional) Catholic knows. God is merciful and His justice is a merciful justice. Thanks be to God, whose justice is not mocked!

Remember to pray the rosary to confound satan and all his works and pomps.
