Recently, Fr. Chad Ripperger posted a video entitled “Our Times Part I: Our Lady’s View of Our Times “. (To see it click on the link at the end of this post.) I find that there are so many good priests trying to teach us and prepare us, but I don’t have the time to watch them all. A friend compiled and sent me a summary of this talk. It is handy to have a written article – it is easier than to sit through it, especially when you just want to check something in it. Also it is a handy tool to print out and email or post it around to friends. I reproduced her summary (below), although I added the coloured highlighting, paragraphing and the paragraph headings. The link to the video is below.
If you don’t already know the story of Our lady of Good Success at Quito, it is worth reading.
Summary of Fr. Ripperger’s talk
Our Lady of Good Success:
In 1610- (note Freemasonry established 1717 at Grand Lodge in England) – She spoke of that time from the end of the 19th century, half way through 20th century, so 1950s to 1960s. The passions will erupt in and there will be a total corruptions of customs . Satan will reign almost completely by way of masonic sects. (This was announced before the masons came onto the scene.) They will focus principally on children in order to sustain this general corruption. Education today is through secularized school system – they have no problem with communism as a result.
Sacrilege against the Sacraments
Enormous sacrileges, both public and private, resulting in profanation of the holy Eucharist. What is being stacked is the doctrine that you have to be in a state of grace to receive. The enemies of Jesus Christ will steal the most holy Eucharist to desecrate them. The sacrament of Extreme Unction will not be valued. Some will not receive their last rites as just punishment from God. Matrimony will be attacked. Freemasons pushed for divorce laws and same sex marriage.
50 years ago if you suggested two men could be married, you’d be put into a mental institution, now it’s accepted. It is a sign of mass insanity. Mental illness is that your intellect is not seeing reality for what it is. It is a result of sin in large part. God gives us over to our passions. The midrash – jewish text – a commentary on various aspects of scripture – quasi- authoritative among the Jews. Written 1000- 500 years before Christ. It states the reason that God pulled the plug on Noah was because men started to enter into contracts with men – that’s is gay marriage. After the Flood, God puts the rainbow as the symbol of Peace with man. So homosexuals take the symbol for their own – a slap in the face to God.
Less than 5% of the marriages going for annulments are between two Catholics, most are mixed marriages and there is a complete breakdown of the family unit.
There is an unwillingness for women to live by the scriptures to submit to their husbands – feminism. Feminism is the product of Communism which is a brainchild of freemasonry. Feminists who are deeply into it are miserable. Men aren’t being men.
Rights of parents and modesty
Fathers do not require modesty of their daughter –( at 18.36). God created in women a natural inclination towards modesty, it still pertains to the fathers to ensure that the natural law dictates of modesty are being met. Modesty does not refer only to dress but also foul language. Children are not taught discipline. Electronics are in every aspect of life fracturing the family. The mindset that the state has a right of the family – is completely false – the natural law rights over the children pertain to the parents.
Communism in education and government
Our Lady said, the Catholic spirit will rapidly decay, the precious light of faith will extinguish until there will be a total corruption of customs. Added to this will be the effect of secular education which will be one reason for the death of religious and priestly vocations. In the book – School of Darkness by Bella Dodd, she recounts in detail the communists systematically took control of the educational associations and systems in the USA. She also recounts that the communists systematically took control of large sections of the government. Our Lady stated that if her request is heeded, Russia will convert and there will be peace – referring to her future Fatima request. Otherwise, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world causing wars and persecutions of the Church.
Russia’s errors are not just communistic governmental systems –
- it’s feminism which comes from Vladimir Lenin where he lays out the whole feminist movement which is entrenched in our society today,
- they wanted to destroy the family – they outlawed marriage when the communists first got in power but it caused economic devastation so they brought it back in, and after that they outlawed homosexuality because they saw the economic devastation of it and that’s why they are still against it today ironically;
- State takes over education of the children;
- State takes over all religions, which are sub-ordinate to the state.
The U..S is thoroughly communist. How you can tell: when the primary consideration for an election is the economy – the communists have already won. For the communists, the only thing that is important is the economy. Whereas the common good of the citizenry is not, but should be the most important.
Oppression of Holy Orders and Pedophilia
Our Lady – (at 24.40 )- the holy Sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed and despised. In this sacrament, God himself is scorned and despised since He is represented in His priests. The devil will try to persecute the Ministers of the Lord in every possible way. He will deviate them from the spirit of their vocation and will corrupt many of them. They will scandalize the Christian people, make hatred of bad catholic and the blame fall on all priests. The problem of pedophilia began in 1940s. In 1961, a document was put out by Congregation for religious and in it, they say stop ordaining the homosexuals and pedophiles. It was a private letter sent to head of religious communities. After WW2, there was a collapse of morality and allowing these people into the seminaries. It became a full blown problem in the 1990s.
The greater scandal is not the pedophilia but the treatment of it. Once established to be true, they should have been laicized and sent to civil authorities. Instead, they are moved place to place. Bella Dodd, after being converted under Fulton Sheen, said that the Communist party in US alone got 1000 into the seminaries in 1940s and 1950s. Communism is the brainchild of freemasonry and it’s the freemasons that are pushing same-sex marriage.
World Elite – pedophilia, occult worship
There is another component. In last part of Wikileaks, the world elite, including Clintons, were involved in pedophilia. Hilary Clinton was involved in the occult. Former senator wrote a book, called the Franklin Cover-Up, which uncovered the CIA and FBI cover-up of pedophilia of the world elite. Many of the heads of state are involved in occult worship – 80% of politicians have been to San Francisco to go through open rituals to Moloch, (that demon associated with the Pachamama). Switzerland opened up a tunnel last year which was overt Balphamet worship, all the heads of state were there and didn’t flinch.
The percentage from three university studies of pedophiles in the priesthood is 1.25% but the media pinned it on all priests. The real scandal (notwithstanding the incalculable damage caused) is how the bishops handled it. 2.75% of the general population of religious are pedophiles including protestants and rabbis, so less than half are Catholic priests. Of professionals, eg doctors, lawyers, the percentage is 8%. Of high school teachers, its 10%.
Suffering to good priests
(34.25) – Our Lady said this apparent triumph of satan will bring enormous suffering to good pastors of the church. Many good priests and the Vicar of Christ who a prisoner in the Vatican will shed secret and bitter tears, beseeching light and sanctity for the clergy of the world for whom he is father. Further in these unhappy times, there will be unbridled luxury which will ensnare the rest into sin and conquer innumerous who will be lost. “Unbridled luxury” is a literal translation which is not right in the context. “Luxuria” in latin and in the romance languages means lust. This is why Our Lady of Fatima said more people go to hell for sins of the flesh – and not because they are the most grievous but because they are the most common and least likely to be repented of.
Sins of the flesh – lust and immodesty
People are unrepented. People have no shame whatsoever. Shame is the perception of being perceived as lowly. Our Lady said innocence will almost no longer be found in children or modesty in women. Certain fashions will be introduced which will offend Our Lord very much. The collapse of modesty is so profound in relationship to dress that even – women who don’t have the intention of being immodest don’t have a clue that they are actually immodest. Pope Pius XI said that a dress cannot be considered to be decent – at 37.13 – which is cut deeper than two fingers below the pit of the throat, covers the arms at least to the elbow, and extends a bit beyond the knees.
Blasphemy and Sacrilege
During that epoch, Our Lady said, the Church will find itself attacked by terrible hordes of the masonic sect. The vices of impurity, blasphemy and sacrilege will dominate in this time of depraved desolation. One who would speak out would be silent. She is talking about our times and a little bit before. The spirit of impurity will saturate those times. Like a filthy ocean it will inundate the streets, squares and public places with an astonishing liberty. Custody of the senses is not enough, you have to have custody of the mind. There will be almost no virgin souls in the world.
How the Church will suffer in that occasion the dark night for a prelate and father to watch over them with fraternal love, gentleness, strength and prudence. Many priests will lose their spirit placing their souls in great danger.
What Saints have said about priests in the Church in these times:
St John Eudes – the greatest chastisement that God can give to a people is giving them bad priests.
At Akita – the work of the devil will infiltrate into the Church so that bishop will be against bishop.
Modernism and lack of great theologians – heresy
We now live in a spirit of modernism – the syntheses of all heresy. Because people decide what is right for them, and not an objective truth which gives rise to cafeteria catholics, there is not a single heresy which is not resurfacing. Modernism is so rife that unless you have a theological and philosophical background or extraordinary grace then you will fall into it. There is a complete collapse in philosophy and theology. There are no more great theologians.
Unusual power of devils
At La Salette: “The Vicar of my Son will suffer a great deal because for a large time the Church will yield to large persecution, a time of darkness and the church will witness a frightful crisis” Our Lady sees this time as a crisis.
Before his death, St Francis called his friars together and gave this prophesy.. “the devils will have unusual power” As an exorcist, the resilience of the demons is unprecedented. Before the mid-60s, when you received faculties for a case of possession, it was over. Within a few days, the demons were out. The average case of possession now takes an average of between 10 months and two years to break and they are extraordinarily resilient to your prayers.
We were warned – St Francis, Our Lady of La Salette, Akita
St Francis -“In those days, Jesus Christ will not send them a true pastor but a destroyer.” You must interpret prophesy formally, and not extrapolate. Look at the words themselves. Jesus is doing this, He is in control. Unless you acknowledge the problem, it can’t be fixed – He is exposing it.
Climate Change – even when they get caught faking the numbers and the data they still keep pushing it. We live in the age of fairytales. Christ predicted this … “In the end times, they will be carried off in fairytales.”
Our Lady at La Salette – all the civil governments will have one and the same plan – to abolish and do away with every religious principle to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism (another name for the occult) and vices of all kinds.
At Akita, in order that the world might know His anger, the Father has prepared a great chastisement. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as has never been seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and wipe out a great part of humanity. (She didn’t say greater, so it will be less than 50% but a large percentage), the good as well as the bad sparing neither priest or faithful.
How do you prepare for this? The survivors will be so desolate that they will envy the dead.
This is a battle between good and evil and the outcome depends largely on us. If we pray, do penance and sacrifices. A vast portion of the graces come into the world by our prayers, sufferings and good works.
All the grace comes into the world by the Catholic Church.
