St. Patrick’s Day, 2017

St. Patrick and Sister Lucia of Fatima, Two Prophecies

An urgent reminder for this St. Patrick’s Day, 2017:  Please, let’s keep our Lenten Fast and Abstinence. The graces they bring into this world are sorely needed! [Post updated this year.]

Let’s ignore, if possible, the discouraging aspects of the secular desecrations of great Saint Patrick’s Feast Day, (such as Cardinal Dolan and his parade of tragic perverts) and focus instead on his prophecy and how it may fit in with that of Fatima, and the Chastisement which pertains to us today.

Saint Patrick, Patron of Ireland
Saint Patrick, Patron of Ireland

St. Patrick is reputed by some accounts to have lived 120 years and to have raised no less than 33 people back to life, many of whom had been dead years. His penances, sacrifices, miracles and conversions were astounding and there are also a couple of prophecies attributed to him. The first is not of good provenance, but relates that the faith he brought to Ireland will blaze throughout the island for a period of time, then gradually dim and eventually appear to be almost extinguished, with but a few glowing embers; but then will gradually resurge, beginning in the north and eventually returning throughout Ireland. Although that might be of some comfort to faithful Catholics in Ireland, today we will consider another prophecy of the great saint of Ireland.

The Centenary of Fatima and the Passion of the Church

Father Malachi Martin was bound, unfairly he believed, but nevertheless bound by an oath against revealing the Third Secret, or more properly, the third portion of the Secret of Fatima. But this chafed him so that he increasingly indicated insights into the secret’s meaning as time went by and the devil’s own chaos increased in the Church. It must have been a terrible burden to know that if only he were able to speak out, so many souls might have repented and been saved! But Father took solace in obedience, knowing as he did that it was by way of the arrogant disobedience of Popes that this assault from hell came about.

And so, even though bound by his oath, Father allowed certain insights. If we review all the hints he gave us in his books and interviews, they fall into a pattern roughly consisting of three portions,

  1. A physical chastisement
  2. A spiritual chastisement
  3. The action of Russia in both chastisements.

Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité  also believed that Russia was the key player in both the physical and spiritual events of the chastisement. Additionally,  Frère Michel stressed that the physical chastisements began with the Second World War and since Russia has not been consecrated properly – and thus cannot be exorcised of Satanic control – the ongoing war will only continue, eventually enveloping the entire world with one horrific conflagration of intense terror. The force behind this will of course, be Russia, or more precisely, satanic marxism.

Satanic marxism is also behind the spiritual chastisement which continues apace until the Church is eventually reduced to a very small  and seemingly impotent remnant. There is little doubt that Pope Francis is a satanic marxist and is the Pope that Father Malachi Martin alluded to as the last pope of this era and who would be under the control of Satan. St. Hildegard has told us what to expect of this pope and Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora has also warned us of what is to come.

In a previous post we quoted Antonio Socci’s account of Pope Benedict’s revelation at Fatima in 2010:

But a resounding explicit confirmation came from Benedict XVI himself, who, during an unexpected pilgrimage to Fatima on May 13, 2010, affirmed: “He deceives himself who thinks that the prophetic mission of Fatima is concluded.”

He added: “there are indicated future realities of the Church which little by little are manifesting themselves… and therefore it is the sufferings of the Church which are announced.”

But could such prophecies be found in that text [of the vision]?

These two phrases of the Pope in that discourse at Fatima prompt reflection:

“Man has the power to unleash a cycle of death and terror, but he is not able to stop it.” And then: “The faith in vast regions of the earth risks being extinguished, like a flame without fuel.”

From these words of Pope Benedict one discerns, therefore, that there is truly something else in the Third Secret and that it is dramatic for the world and the Church. The volume in fact draws from the letters of Sister Lucia and from the unpublished diary “My Way.” Impressive among things previously unpublished, is the account of how Sister Lucy overcame the terror that prevented her from writing down the Third Secret.

The Unpublished Account

At around 4 p.m. on January 3, 1944, in the chapel of the convent, before the Tabernacle, Lucia asked Jesus to make known His will: “I then felt a friendly hand, maternal and affectionate, touch my shoulder.”

And the Mother of God said to her: “be at peace, and write what I have commanded you, but not, however, that which has been given to you to understand its meaning,” intending to allude to the meaning of the vision which the Virgin herself had revealed.

Immediately afterward, said Sister Lucia, “I felt my spirit inundated by a mystery of light that is God and in Him I saw and heard: the point of a lance like a flame that is detached, touches the axis of the earth, and it trembles: mountains, cities, towns and villages with their inhabitants are buried. The sea, the rivers, the clouds, exceed their boundaries, inundating and dragging with them, in a vortex, houses and people in a number that cannot be counted. It is the purification of the world from the sin in which it is immersed. Hatred, ambition, provoke the destructive war.

After I felt my racing heart, in my spirit a soft voice said: ‘In time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. In eternity, Heaven!’ This word ‘Heaven’ filled my heart with peace and happiness in such a way that, almost without being aware of it, I kept repeating to myself for a long time: Heaven, Heaven.” (Antonio Socci)

From this came the strength to write the Third Secret. …

January 28, 2017

With yesterday’s repost, we renew our discussion of Apocalypse 8 in order to examine an intriguing quote from Sister Lucia. When asked to comment on the Third Secret she suggested that we faithful read the Apocalypse, especially Chapters 8 and 13. Several Popes have also indicated that the message of Fatima is apocalyptic, as has Father Malachi Martin. In fact, it is quite possible that by reviewing Chapters 8 through 13 we may even gain some insight into what this Pope of Surprises has in store for us; what do you think?

And now we continue with Part 3, which has been updated and much new material added:

“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:  And the third part of those creatures died, which had life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed.” (Apoc. 8, 8-9)

Our last post in this series, Fatima, Vatican II and the Chastisement 2, did not fully address the verse above. I appreciate that this was pointed out to me. We did mention the common opinion that the burning mountain referred to Islam, but did not note the fact that it may also, and much more probably, refer to Russia. Indeed, Our Lady’s last appearance at Fatima on October 13, 1917, was just days prior to the Bolshevik Revolution of November 7, 1917.

Yes, as Father Sylvester Berry points out in his book, The Apocalypse of St. John, the burning mountain is most certainly a country and with the hindsight we have now, 100 years after Our Lady of Fatima warned that if Russia was was not consecrated,  she (Russia) “will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”  Fr. Berry:  “The vision shows that, despite the preaching of the Gospel, some great nation will bring war and bloodshed upon a large portion of mankind. It also predicts great persecutions against the Church. Nations will seek to destroy the Church at all hazards.”

In another earlier post, Islam and the Errors of Russia, we explored the connection between the two evils, Islam and Russia. This will all be clear soon, as the chastisement reveals its contours more clearly. But for now, just note: Blessed Elena Aiello prophesied in the year 1960 (note well the date.) that “Russia will battle America and will overcome Europe. … will raise her flag over the Dome of St. Peter’s.”  Indeed, some have noted that with Pope Francis, we already have a marxist pope, who owns a symbol of the errors of Russia, that is, a hammer and sickle on which Christ Our Saviour hangs, crucified.

Additionally, Sister Lucia herself told Dr. William Walsh, in answer to his inquiry whether the United States of America would be overcome by Communism unless the Consecration was done, “Yes”.

Let’s continue with Father Berry’s remarks on the end of Chapter 8:

A Progressive Accumulation of Evils

“The prophecies of this chapter have been fulfilled many times in the past. No doubt they will often be verified in the future. It should be noted, however, that a progressive accumulation of evils is predicted. At first, it affects individuals only (Apoc. 8: 7). Then a nation or an entire church is involved (Apoc. 8: 8), and a number of great heretics fall away from the Faith (Apoc. 8: 10). Finally, the whole Church suffers from a weakening of Faith and discipline (Apoc. 8: 12). This gradual progression of evil, this “mystery of iniquity” (2 Thess. 2: 7), which was working even in the days of St. Paul will finally usher in the Antichrist. … Whatever interpretation be adopted, there can be no doubt that this verse heralds the beginning of a new and important epoch in the history of the Church.”

This quote is from Father Sylvester Berry’s essential book, “The Apocalypse of St. John”.  As we continue with this series, keep in mind that God our Father has given us His own Son for our Savior and the Blessed Virgin Mary for our Mother and will sustain us in all our needs. The times are approaching when when must hold firm to this faith.

Frère Michel on the Age of Apostasy, updated

Before we return to the Apocalypse, let’s put a few pieces together. Father Malachi Martin and Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité could have had an interesting discussion, couldn’t they? You all know very well Father Martin’s writings about the enthronement which occurred in the reign of Paul VI. Let’s keep it in mind as we review what Frère Michel tells us here:

From The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III

It is Jesus Himself Who first predicted this terrible crisis of the Faith which will open the “last times”. Along with famines and earthquakes, wars and persecutions, Our Lord clearly predicts that there will also be grave deficiencies even within the Church:

«Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and will put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will fall away, and will betray one another, and will hate one another. And many false prophets will arise, and will lead many astray. And because iniquity will abound, the charity of the many will grow cold. But whoever perseveres to the end, he shall be saved.» (Mt. 24: 9-13)

«… For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have foretold it to you.» (Mt. 24: 24)

Finally, we are familiar with these stupefying words of Jesus:

«Yet when the Son of man comes, will He find, do you think, faith on the earth?» (Lk. 18: 8)

This question of Our Lord, explained by His other prophecies on the last times – which are utterly definite and unconditional – takes on an even more dramatic resonance. The apostasy will come, Jesus evokes its most extreme extension, and He leaves us in uncertainty.

THE APOSTOLIC PREACHING

The Apostles understood this tragic teaching very well. There are countless texts where they evoke this menacing apostasy. They multiply warnings against its artisans, the false prophets and false doctors of all sorts, who come from the Church’s very bosom and are already at work against Her, striving furiously to destroy the Faith of the faithful. But “in the last days”, they make it clear, the false prophets will multiply most dangerously. We must reread chapters II and III of Saint Peter’s Second Epistle:

«But there were false prophets also among the people, just as among you there will be lying teachers who will bring in destructive sects. They even disown the Lord Who bought them, thus bringing upon themselves swift destruction.» (2 Pet. 2: 1)

«This first you must know, that in the last days there will come deceitful scoffers, men walking according to their own lusts, saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”… But beloved, do not be ignorant of this one thing, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord does not delay in His promises, but for your sake is long-suffering, not wishing that any should perish but that all should turn to repentance. (2 Pet. 3: 3-9)

We must reread Saint Jude, taking up the same theme:

Mary’s Promise

“Do not lose heart, I will never forsake you! My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.” (Our Lady of Fatima, June 13, 1917)

Immaculate Heart of Mary
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Mother, Pray for Us Now and at the Hour of Our Death. Amen.

I awoke this morning to see the sky that achingly beautiful blue that fills my soul with longing for heaven. Rosary in hand I thought of St. Teresa’s Hail Mary. She appeared to one of her devoted sistser of Carmel to tell her that if she could, she would return to earth  to say just one Hail Mary, so effective is that prayer. And so throughout the day, I pray “St. Teresa’s Hail Mary” for her.

Just think a moment — St. Teresa of Avila, that great doctor of the Church, came back to say, … what? To explain her mystical insight in the Mansions? No. She returned to urge her sisters to pray the simple, loving Hail Mary. Dear readers, Our Lady’s promise to us is simply this: Her Immaculate Heart, that is, her most pure and perfect will, to strengthen us and lead us through this maelstrom of the Chastisement of the Church today.

Today, we have a pope who appears to be an apostate, and who misleads the faithful that contraception is allowed in some instances, that some couples who co-habit without marriage have the grace of marriage while many who have been sacramentally married do not,  who never misses the opportunity to attack the faith of those who still listen to him. Then the devil rejoices! This is the Passion of the Bride of Christ; do not fail Our Lord now!

Although the hour is late, we must struggle in this cesspool of a world with all its dreary temptations. The grace – and with it the graciousness – of the Christian era has receded, leaving a most barren landscape, where lost souls wander. Look around you – how few believe in Christ or His Church; even fewer know of Our Lady of Fatima and even less actually obey her.

It is 99 years after her appearances, and how few Catholics are aware of the simple, effective means God has provided for our salvation and that of those entrusted to us.

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)

“We saw an Angel with a flaming sword”

“At the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’. (Vatican)

One of the main messages of Fatima was the urgent need for penance. In fact, the year prior to Our Lady of the Rosary’s series of visits to Fatima, the Angel of Fatima St. Michael, appeared to the three little shepherds to prepare them for Our Lady’s appearance. That hot summer day 100 years ago was a day like today, shimmering in the stifling heat of summer, when St. Michael appeared to the children as they played listlessly on the old well in the shade of a tree.

‘What are you doing? Pray, pray very much! The Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High.

‘How are we to make sacrifices?’ I asked.

‘Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. You will thus draw down peace upon your country. I am its Angel Guardian, the Angel of Portugal. Above all, accept and bear with submission the suffering which the Lord will send you.’

And so, one hundred years have passed and here we are, in the middle of a Jubilee Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis. Where is the penance, where is the reparation, the sacrificial heart? 2017, we will mark one hundred years after Our Lady appeared at Fatima. Her message – the great prophecy concerning the coming decades if humanity did not obediently turn to God in prayer and reparation -has been virtually disregarded. Instead of honoring the Immaculate Mother of God, the Pope plans to honor Martin Luther, the arch-heretic who offended both Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Mother. In other words, the Pope will honor pride and disobedience as if they were virtue. This diabolical agenda will not pass without consequences.

Apropos to this, Antonio Socci wrote a column in 2014, translated by Christopher Ferrara and available online at Fatima Perspectives. Socci states that it was Pope Benedict himself who confirmed that Fatima is far from over.  On a pilgrimage to Fatima on May 13, 2010, Pope Benedict affirmed:

“He deceives himself who thinks that the prophetic mission of Fatima is concluded.” … “there are indicated future realities of the Church which little by little are manifesting themselves… and therefore it is the sufferings of the Church which are announced.”

In that same talk at Fatima, Pope Benedict said,

“Man has the power to unleash a cycle of death and terror, but he is not able to stop it.” And then: “The faith in vast regions of the earth risks being extinguished, like a flame without fuel.”

And lastly, these few words, pregnant with meaning,

“May the seven years which separate us from the centenary of the Apparitions (2017) hasten the prophesied triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the glory of the Most Holy Trinity.”

And yet, what have we seen in these years since Pope Benedict’s prophetic speech?
