Prophecies are very important.
It is vital that we discern correctly and pay attention.
God wants to save His children. He has sent His Mother many times to warn us.
Our Lady’s apparitions at Fatima and revelations to Lucy, are amongst the most well-known of all apparitions regarding these end times. In these messages, we were told about doing reparation – Penance, the Five First Saturdays; praying the Rosary; about the fires of Purgatory and of hell; about a chastisement that would befall the world if her message was not adhered to. There was also a Third Secret, which was so terrible that popes could not bring themselves to acknowledge it fully. Since then, it was reiterated by Fr Gobbi and also in the Book of Truth. Fr Malachi Martin, in an interview in 1998 agreed that the statement “ The last pope will be under the control of satan” was correct and that it was part of the Third Secret.
On June 13th 1989, Our Lady told Fr. Gobbi (message #406) “This masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in, even to the summit of the Church.“
In a recent post, we connected the events of Garabandal to the Book of Truth. It affirms what Our Lady told Sr Lucia about a 7th apparition at Fatima.
The Book of Truth states in a message dated 24 January 2014 @ 8:05pm, from Our Lady:
“I will make one more appearance at all the Marian grottos, which were approved by my Son’s Church, over the centuries.”
She told us:
“I will make myself known in Sacred sites, which will include Lourdes, Fatima, La Salette and Guadalupe. I will also appear at Garabandal.”
The quote below is from: America Needs Fatima
“A seventh apparition
Our Lady appeared six times at Fatima from May, 1917 to October, 1917. However, during the first apparition Our Lady mentioned that she will return to Cova the Iria, the site of the apparition, a seventh time. In her own words Our Lady said,
“I have come here to ask you to come here for six months in succession on the thirteenth day of each month at this same hour. Later I will tell you who I am and what I want. Afterward, I will return here a seventh time.”
Although Fatima specialists differ in their opinions with regard to its interpretation, nothing against Faith prevents a Catholic to hope and confide that this promise would be fulfilled in the near future. Certainly it is a glorious and most singular event a faithful Catholic could eagerly look forward to especially in our confusing and chaotic times. Perhaps, the seventh apparition would usher in the time of peace that St. Louis Grignion de Montfort described as the Reign of Mary and which Our Lady prophesied as the triumph of Her Immaculate Heart.”

Jacinta’s last words
And more at:
Bergoglio commenced to dismantle the Catholic Church, brick by brick by putting doubts regarding Truths and doctrines – such as hell, divorce and remarriage, homosexual and other LGBTQ agenda; by many blasphemies, heresies and foul statements about the Church, its teachings, the faithful, and even Our Lady.
We have Amoris Laetita – introduced into the Magisterium through the back door, a Laudato Si Light show with pagan gods and goddesses displayed all over the Sacred buildings of the Vatican on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception Paganism introduced into our Holy Mother Church. Now, churches have closed and we have no Mass to attend (except on TV and Youtube) and we are effectively in lock-down, depriving us of our God given free will.
There was talk of a commission formulating changes to the Mass – what this will entail, is scary to contemplate!
On November 21, 2019, Abp. Vigano (in Lifesite News) said:
“For almost seven years now, the successor of the Prince of the Apostles, who was entrusted with the mandate Christ conferred on Peter after his profession of faith — “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Mt 16:18) — has abdicated his ministry to confirm the brethren in the faith. Pope Francis has never confirmed anyone. We painfully acknowledge how divisive and destructive his ministry has been.”
“With the declaration he signed in Abu Dhabi, in which he states that “The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom,” and by his constant deviant condemnations of so-called “proselytism,” Francis has not only mortified every missionary impulse but has indeed rejected the mandate given by Christ to all the Apostles: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Mt 28:18-20).”
“The strategy of the current pontiff is camouflaged by deceit and lies, it is concealed by silence; when he is discovered in these, his deviant intentions, what great confusion they cause among the faithful, while they are astutely praised by the enemies of the Church.
The Synod on the…, developed under the aegis of the United Nations and supported by the great financial and Masonic powers. …”
Rev. Michael X., J.C.L. wrote on 19th Sept. 2018 that
“Pope Francis has promulgated a new apostolic constitution ‘Episcopalis Communio’ in the Synod of Bishops that, for all intents and purposes, is a perfect Trojan Horse for injecting heresy on a global scale into the Church…”
This new Apostiolic constitution can “cause substantive and lasting change almost overnight to the ordinary life of the Church.”
In Sept, 2017, Bergoglio “issued new instructions for the approval of liturgical texts, rebalancing the relationship between the Vatican and local bishops’ conferences in favor of greater local control. The pope’s order, in the form of an apostolic letter issued motu proprio (that is, on his own initiative) titled “Magnum Principium.
Bergoglio already last year announced a “new humanism” and a “new evangelisation”. How about a ‘New Mass” and new interpretations of readings in the gospels. And how about Bergoglio insisting that all clergy take an oath of allegiance to him – not to Christ and His Teachings, but to him personally? (see prophecy below)With this current virus we have seen our secular rights quickly eroded. You might ask what has this to do with Bergoglio and the Church. There have been reports of the connection with UN, and the WHO: Bergoglio signed the Abu Dhabi agreement and also the UN 28 Sustainable Goals(!!). The secular and the religious world is thus intertwined. ‘The term “humanism” (or more specifically, communism) frightens me more now that I can see what it is like, to be controlled where I go and who I see and how I practice my Faith. It’s scary to see everyone just fall for it and go along with it.
One thing that all this is definitely leading up to, is the New One World Government – the ex-British Prime Minister actually said that this virus pandemic needs a one world government to control it! And even worse than that – I think that first – there will be changes to the Mass. It will involve the Eucharist.Whether they change the words of Consecration, or the ‘matter’ of what is used, or even to change what we believe about the Eucharist – whether it is just a symbol of togetherness, in which nall must participate. What we do know is that the prophecy of Daniel will be fulfilled – the Abomination of Desolation will be there to be adored. What a sad day that will be for the world.
“A man not canonically elected will be raised to the pontificate, who by his cunning, will draw many into error and death”
“Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist”
“ Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers (Lk. 18:8, Mt. 24: 12). The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth (Lk.21:12, Jn..15:19-20) will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.”
“Armed forces shall rise at his command and defile the sanctuary stronghold, abolishing the daily sacrifice and setting up the desolating abomination.”
“The king shall do as he wills, exalting himself and making himself greater than any god; he shall utter dreadful blasphemies against the God of gods. He shall prosper only till the wrath is finished, for what is determined must take place.
“When you see the desolating abomination spoken of through Daniel the prophet standing in the holy place (let the reader understand) ”
“My dearly beloved daughter, the plan by the False Prophet to deceive the world’s clergy has begun. Under the guise of a renewal and regeneration of the Catholic Church, all the clergy, within this Church, will be sent on retreats to encourage them to accept the new apostolate.These will become widespread and many will be told that the objective is to unite everyone in the world, in the name of justice.
This new mission will, they will be told, embrace the world’s poor and strive to bring about unity. They will be asked to pledge their allegiance, through a new oath, to remain faithful to the Church. They will not be asked to place their faith in me or My Holy Word.
Instead, they will swear allegiance to the new self-proclaimed leaders who have taken over the chair of Peter.
Make no mistake that those who have been bestowed with the gift of Holy Orders will be asked to participate in a falsity, where I, Jesus Christ, will not be at the forefront, though it will appear to be the case.
Money will be a driving force and a new financial organization will be set up to control the seeking of funds to ensure that the world’s poor will benefit.
When you amend your holy orders, in any way, and then pledge your life to someone who breaks all ties with me, you will no longer be fit to serve me.
Everything will be seen to be made simple in the eyes of God.
The plan will be to convince those Sacred Servants of mine to take part, willingly, in the abomination, which will link society and a secular world with the Church, which was set up by me, Jesus Christ. This is how I will be insulted.
Every effort to embrace secularism will be applauded by non-believers and this will be seen to be a good thing, for the new, so-called modern society of today. It will soon seem strange to Christians when they see members of the secular world embrace the Catholic Church, so enthusiastically. But many will brush off their doubts and dismiss their concerns, as they will fall for the great deceit.
At the kernel of this plan to revolutionize the Church lies a hatred for me and everything that I gave My Church.
You must question everything in the days ahead.
Demand answers when they change My Teachings and twist them to suit pagans. No disciple, appointed by me, would ever be given the authority to do this, for it amounts to blasphemy.
Woe to those who allow My Holy Word to be tampered with and allow room to be set aside to show respect for those who deny me.
“…The work of the deceiver has infiltrated My Church on every level. Very soon now, slowly but surely, you will see Holy Masses being reduced. You will see the removal of special prayers and some of the Sacraments, such as Confession, begin to diminish. I call on My sacred servants now to listen to Me and pray for discernment. …
Watch carefully now the changes you will see creeping in within your own ministry. …But as time moves on certain changes will be forced upon you and you will be made to swallow lies. The lies will come from Satan and will be dressed in sheep’s clothing.
…. Never allow yourselves to accept any other Truth other than that contained in the Holy Bible.
Many changes will be introduced, which will contradict the Word of My Eternal Father. These changes, My sacred servants, won’t be of divine origin and you must reject these untruths if you want to remain loyal to Me.
Wake up. Stand up to those lies you will have to face. Never accept them. My Eternal Father’s Word will never change. It can never be adjusted by mankind. …”
“… No one, …has the authority to twist the meaning of My Holy Word, so that it becomes more acceptable in your eyes. This applies to My Word contained in the Holy Bible and My Word contained within these Messages.
… The Truth must be told. My Holy Word must never be diluted, or the Truth tampered with.
My Holy Word must never be changed, adjusted or twisted, so that it becomes a lie.
…This wickedness is even justified by those who profess My Word and who claim to know Me.
They have twisted my Teachings for centuries to suit their avarice, lust, pride and greed.
… But beware. Those Christians who believe that the twisted truth of My Teachings will be acceptable in My Eyes will be shocked during The Warning. They will resist the Truth when I reveal how their sins greatly offend Me.”
…For that is precisely what the false prophet and the imposters who idolise Satan, are trying to do. They want to topple the Catholic Church and break it into little pieces.
… All those who know My Teachings will see changes in the recital of the Holy Mass. New secular laws will be introduced which will be an affront to My death on the Cross.”
My followers will be told that Holy Communion is about all people – everywhere – uniting as one, to show love to one another.
Slowly, but surely, the Holy Mass will no longer be about My Holy Sacrifice.
Instead the ceremony will be created to pay homage to man and you will be misled into witnessing a confrontation before My Holy Altars and all the tabernacles in the world.
The day when the daily sacrifices will cease is not far away.
Know that I come to warn you of this now, so that you will not starve.
When you are deprived of My Presence, you will be empty of My Spirit and you will find it difficult to remain close to Me.
The words which will be used to deceive you will include the phrase “for the good of all – for the unification of all God’s children.”
The Mass will take on a new meaning.
Forgotten will be My Death on the Cross and all the reasons for it will be re-defined.
Remember on that day, My Words to you now.
Accept the substitution and My Presence will disappear.
I will be with you, but it will not be My Body which you will partake of.
Allow me to see the enemy
and close my heart to deceit.
I surrender all to You, dear Jesus.
I trust in Your Mercy.
Everywhere there is war! Peoples and nations are pitted against each other… Rome also collapses in tumult. And I see the King of Rome with his Cross and his Tiara, shaking the dust off his shoes, and hastening in his flight to other shores. Your Church, O Lord, is torn apart by her own children. One camp is faithful to the fleeing Pontiff, the other is subject to the new government of Rome which has broken the Tiara.
With the disastrous release of Amoris Laetitia, we see the cowardly silence of almost all the clergy considered more faithful or ‘conservative.’ God will intervene by sending a “Prelate … blessed and prized before God” to energize the successors to the Apostles who have fled at the crucifixion of Christ in His Church under ‘Pope’ Francis.
• “The sacred sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed and despised, for in doing this, one scorns and defiles the Church of God, and even God Himself, represented by His priests. The Demon will try to persecute the Ministers of the Lord in every possible way.”
• “During this unfortunate epoch, injustice will even enter here [into the Church], my closed garden. Disguised under the name of false charity, it will wreak havoc in souls. The spiteful demon will try to sow discord, making use of putrid members, who, masked by the appearance of virtue, will be like decaying sepulchers emanating the pestilence of putrefaction, causing moral deaths in some and lukewarmness in others. … How the Church will suffer on that occasion the dark night of the lack of a Prelate and Father to watch over them with paternal love, gentleness, strength, and prudence!
“I saw in the Light of the Lord that the Faith and our Holy Religion would become weaker in almost every Christian Kingdom. God has permitted that they should be chastised by the wicked in order to awaken them form their apathy. And after the Justice of God has been satisfied, He will pour out an abundance of graces on His Church. And He will spread the Faith and restore discipline of the Church in those countries where it had become tepid and lax. I see in God a great power led by the Holy Ghost which will restore order through a second upheaval. I see in God a large assembly of pastors who will uphold the rights of the Church and of Her Head. They will restore the former disciplines. I see in particular two servants of the Lord who will distinguish themselves in this glorious struggle and who, by the grace of God, will fill with ardent zeal the hearts of this illustrious assembly.”
“Religion shall be persecuted, and priests massacred. Churches shall be closed, but only for a short time. The Holy Father shall be obliged to leave Rome.” (Yves Dupont, Catholic Prophecy, Tan Books and Publishers, 1973)
“The church will suffer exceedingly. Her servants and her chieftain will be mocked, scourged, and martyred.”
Here is the prophecy of Pope Pius X, where he states that the “forced to flee” pope-martyr (also described by Sister Lucia of Fatima as the pope in white who will be killed) will have his name… Giuseppe = Joseph. This could only be Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict XVI:
The bold proclamation in the headline of this article was personally witnessed by St. Maximilian Kolbe, who watched Freemasons celebrate their bicentennial in St. Peter’s Square in 1917. St. Maximilian Kolbe saw banners bearing these words amidst the revelry:
“Satan must Reign in the Vatican – the Pope [Francis] will Be his Slave”
It seems to me that the first prophecy (below) is about Pope Benedict XVI. Is the reference “cut the ties” to his supposed “resignation”?
“Now Heaven’s voice is addressed to the Shepherd of shepherds. You are now in conference with your advisors. The enemy of the good does not stand idle one moment. He studies and practices all his arts against you. He will sow discord among your consultors; he will raise up enemies amongst my children. The powers of the world will belch forth fire, and they would that the words be suffocated in the throats of the custodians of my law. That will not happen, they will do no harm but to themselves. You must hurry. If you cannot untie the knots, cut them. If you find yourself hard pressed, do not give up but continue until the head of the hydra of error is cut off. This stroke will make the world and Hell beneath it tremble, but the world will be safe and all the good will rejoice. Keep your consultors always with you, even if only two. Wherever you go, continue and bring to an end the work entrusted to you. The days fly by, your years will reach the destined number; but the great Queen will ever be your help, as in times past, so in the future She will always be the exceeding great fortress of the Church. [Here St. Bosco refers to the Immaculata].
He continues: This paragraph seems to speak of the effects of Bergoglio’s reign. The “bread of faith” is not being fed to us, and indeed, it is being “smashed to pieces”.
“Ah, but you, Italy, land of blessings! Who has steeped you in desolation! Blame not your enemies, but rather your friends. Can you not hear your children asking for the bread of faith and finding only those who smash it to pieces? What shall I do? I shall strike the shepherds, I shall disperse the flock, until those sitting on the throne of Moses search for good pastures and the flock listens attentively and is fed.
Warning about chastisements:
Of the flock and over the shepherds My hand will weigh heavy. Famine, pestilence, and war will be such that mothers will have to cry on account of the blood of their sons and of their martyrs dead in a hostile country.
And to you, Rome, what will happen! Ungrateful Rome, effeminate Rome, proud Rome! You have reached such a height that you search no further. You admire nothing else in your Sovereign except luxury, forgetting that you and your glory stands upon Golgotha. Now he is old, defenseless, and despoiled; and yet at his word, the word of one who was in bondage, the whole world trembles. (I wonder it this last sentence also refers to Benedict? His book on celibacy cleverly undermining Bergoglio before he could announce the final synod document, certainly shook some people up.!)
And finally, a warning to Rome:
Rome! To you I will come four times.
The first time, I shall strike your lands and the inhabitants thereof.
The second time, I shall bring the massacre and the slaughter even to your very walls. And will you not yet open your eyes?
I shall come a third time and I shall beat down to the ground your defenses and the defenders, and at the command of the Father, the reign of terror, of dreadful fear, and of desolation shall enter into your city.
But My wise men have now fled and My law is even now trampled underfoot. Therefore I will make a fourth visit. Woe to you if My law shall still be considered as empty words. There will be deceit and falsehood among both the learned and the ignorant. Your blood and that of your children will wash away your stains upon God’s law. War, pestilence and famine are the rods to scourge men’s pride and wickedness. O wealthy men, where is your glory now, your estates, your palaces? They are the rubble on the highways and byways.
And a scolding question for priests:
And your priests, why have you not run to ‘cry between the vestibule and the Altar,’ begging God to end these scourges? Why have you not, with the shield of faith, gone upon the housetops, into the homes, along the highways and byways, into every accessible corner to carry the seed of My word? Know you that this is the terrible two-edged sword that cuts down My enemies and breaks the Anger of God and of men?”
Effeminate Rome. What an indictment. But this prophecy points to our own time.
“The flagship commander — the Roman Pontiff — standing at the helm, strains every muscle to steer his ship between the two columns, from whose summits hang many anchors and strong hooks linked to chains. The entire enemy fleet closes in to intercept and sink the flagship at all costs. They bombard it with everything they have: books and pamphlets, incendiary bombs, firearms, cannons. The battle rages ever more furious. Beaked prows ram the flagship again and again, but to no avail, as unscathed and undaunted, it keeps on its course. At times, a formidable ram splinters a gaping hole in its hull, but immediately, a breeze from the two columns instantly seals the gash.
“Meanwhile, enemy cannons blow up; firearms and beaks fall to pieces; ships crack up and sink to the bottom. In blind fury, the enemy takes to hand-to-hand combat, cursing and blaspheming. Suddenly the Pope falls, seriously wounded. He is instantly helped up, but struck a second time, dies. A shout of victory rises from the enemy, and wild rejoicing sweeps their ships. But no sooner is the Pope dead than another takes his place. The captains of the auxiliary ships elected him so quickly that the news of the Pope’s death coincides with that of his successor’s election. The enemy’s self-assurance wanes.
“Breaking through all resistance, the new Pope steers his ship safely between the two columns; first, to the one surmounted by the Host, and then the other, topped by the statue of the Virgin. At this point, something unexpected happens. The enemy ships panic and disperse, colliding with and scuttling each other.
“Some auxiliary ships, which had gallantly fought alongside their flagship, are the first to tie up at the two columns. Many others, which had fearfully kept far away from the fight, stand still, cautiously waiting until; the wrecked enemy ships vanish under the waves. Then they too head for the two columns, tie up at the swinging hooks and ride safe and tranquil beside their flagship. A great calm now covers the sea.”
“There will be an Ecumenical Council in the next century, after which there will be chaos in the Church. Tranquility will not return until the Pope succeeds in anchoring the boat of Peter between the twin pillars of Eucharistic Devotion and Devotion to Our Lady. This will come about one year before the end of the century.”
(NB: this prophecy was exactly 100 years till when Vatican II started)
In his article of 13th Nov. 2017, C. Ferrara speaks of prophecies, which are often dismissed by neo- Catholic commentators as being “apocryphal”. They just can’t believe that they are true. I myself cannot understand this mindset. An example is the prophecy of St Francis. It is the first one that I recognized to speak to us of these times. It says everything, we are still all arguing about – an uncanonically elected pope, who would be a “destroyer”, who would “draw many into error and death” etc. C. Ferrara points out the authenticity of this prophecy. He calls this prophecy “astonishing”
“A short time before the holy Father’s [St. Francis’] death, he called together his children and warned them of the coming troubles:
“Act bravely, my brethren; take courage and trust in the Lord. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase. The devils will have unusual power; the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who obey the true Supreme Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal ears and perfect charity.
“At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death. Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.
“There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God….
“Those who persevere in their fervor and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth…
“Some preachers will keep silent about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them, not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.” [paragraph breaks added]”
First of all, it was published way back in 1882!
Secondly the (Catholic) author of the published “Works of the Seraphic Father, St. Francis of Assisi” separated the “doubtful prophecies” from the authentic ones. C. Ferara continues ”Moreover, in 1882 there could hardly have been any “radical traditionalist” motive to circulate phony quotations of the saint”..
Thirdly, “Saint Francis’ prophecy is clearly not a prediction of the Great Western Schism (1378-1417), which did not involve a “destroyer” on the Chair of Peter who leads the faithful into error, widespread apostasy, and the persecution of faithful Catholics as “schismatics.” But it does contain elements very familiar to us today.
Fourthly. could it be just “coincidence that Saint Francis’ prophecy of a future “destroyer” in the papal office seems to correspond rather well with the pontificate of the only Pope who has taken Francis’ name as his own?”
“Something else to consider: Saint Francis, one of the greatest saints in Church history, one of the few who is known and revered by the whole world, freely revealed his vision of an ecclesial destroyer who usurps the papal office. That is, Saint Francis did not suffer from the currently reigning papolatry, which holds that the indefectibility of the Church depends upon defending every word and deed of a given Pope as somehow consistent with Tradition and declares absolutely inadmissible the idea that the holder of the Petrine office could be a threat to the integrity of the Faith. Rather, Saint Francis, illuminated by heaven itself, recognized the coming reality …”
Ordinary, faith-filled Catholics believe the approved prophecies of saints, but many sadly don’t know about them. It is all those modernists who trounce them and deride them and scoff – it is not what they want to hear. It is not what priests, clergy and bishops want to hear. Perhaps they have not read them? Or perhaps it is something they don’t want to hear? This is despite the fact that other saints and even Our Lady has announced these prophecies over and over again.

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo
Bl. Catherine Emmerich was given to know much about the future of the Catholic Church, nearly 200 years ago. She was given to see the time of two popes, and how one would lead the Church into apostasy, the other would be isolated and paralyzed by inaction.
As a remedy, Our Lady revealed to her that Catholics should join together to pray a special prayer at Midnight, Rome Time. It is presently midnight here at Rome, so please read these prophecies of Bl. Emmerich, approved by the Church, and say the prayers Our Lady asked for. (Sources: here and here)

I have always wondered why Catholics don’t look at the prophecies of Our Lady and other saints whom God has sent to warn us against danger – just as He always did in the Old Testament through His prophets? We are generally ignorant of prophecies: I am in my late sixties – I remember being taught about Fatima, but never have I been taught about other saints or other apparitions of Our Lady. Through the years I seem to have been drawn to seeking them out. I remember when Garabandal happened. It was all over the news for a few months, then suddenly disappeared. My children are now in their forties and even though they went to Catholic schools, they were never taught about prophecies. Prophecies are never mentioned by priests, except these days, if you have a good traditionally-minded priest, he might mention Fatima, or as recently happened, Akita. Most priests are too afraid to read prophecy in case they are misled. What are they afraid of? Do they not pray for discernment? Are they not well-trained in the reading and understanding of the Church and its Teachings? Prophecies are a special gift from God to His children in need.
So when I speak to people who don’t understand what is going on, and who can’t bear to think that Francis is not a good pope – I tell them of the age-old prophecies from approved apparitions of Our Lady, and of course, the Saints! Who would doubt Our Lady and the Saints? I put a little booklet together (with a little more detail than in this article) and hand them out – with instant results. Those who truly love their Faith accept these prophecies and then their whole way of thinking is transformed.
St Francis was a visionary (saw Jesus Christ), had the stigmata and shortly before his death in October 3, 1226, he called his followers and left them his prediction of the coming of a Destroyer who is a pope and a great schism in the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
” 2. The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death.
“7. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.”
(Except for breaking up the narrative into numbered paragraphs and adding bold print for emphasis, the prophecy is presented without any alteration, as given in the Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis of Assisi, Washbourne, 1882, pp. 248-250.)
“As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and deeply profaned. Freemasonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the aim of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin and encouraging the procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church. The Catholic spirit will rapidly decay; the precious light of Faith will gradually be extinguished until there will be an almost total and general corruption of customs. Added to this will be the effects of secular education, which will be one reason for the dearth of priestly and religious vocations.”
(This is perfectly clear as we watched the Synods of 2014 and 2015, culminating in the catastrophe called Amoris Laetitia. And, according to modernist Cardinal Kasper, is only the beginning! Freemasonry is clearly in power, and at the summit of the Church, not to mention well entrenched in the Vatican.)
“This apparent triumph of Satan will bring enormous sufferings to the good Pastors of the Church, the many good priests, and the Supreme Pastor and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, a prisoner in the Vatican, will shed secret and bitter tears in the presence of his God and Lord, beseeching light, sanctity, and perfection for all the clergy of the world, of whom he is King and Father.”
“The sacred sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed and despised, for in doing this, one scorns and defiles the Church of God, and even God Himself, represented by His priests. The Demon will try to persecute the Ministers of the Lord in every possible way.”
“During this unfortunate epoch, injustice will even enter here [into the Church], my closed garden. Disguised under the name of false charity, it will wreak havoc in souls. The spiteful demon will try to sow discord, making use of putrid members, who, masked by the appearance of virtue, will be like decaying sepulchers emanating the pestilence of putrefaction, causing moral deaths in some and lukewarmness in others. … How the Church will suffer on that occasion the dark night of the lack of a Prelate and Father to watch over them with paternal love, gentleness, strength, and prudence!
May 13, 1820
“I saw also the relationship between the two popes. . .
I saw how baleful (harmful) would be the consequences of this false church. I saw it increase in size; heretics of every kind came into the city (of Rome). The local clergy grew lukewarm, and I saw a great darkness…”
“Once more I saw that the Church of Peter was undermined by a plan evolved by the secret sect, while storms were damaging it. But I saw also that help was coming when distress had reached its peak. I saw again the Blessed Virgin ascend on the Church and spread her mantle [over it].”
“I saw the Holy Father surrounded by traitors and in great distress about the Church. He had visions and apparitions in his hour of greatest need. I saw many good pious Bishops; but they were weak and wavering, their cowardice often got the upper hand…Then I saw darkness spreading around and people no longer seeking the true Church.”
August 10, 1820
“I see the Holy Father in great anguish. He lives in a palace other than before and he admits only a limited number of friends near him. I fear that the Holy Father will suffer many more trials before he dies. I see that the false Church of darkness is making progress and I see the dreadful influence it has on the people. The Holy Father and the Church are verily in so great a distress that one must implore God night and day…”
“I have been told to pray much for the Church and the Pope…The people must pray earnestly for the extirpation (rooting out) of the dark church.”
“Last night I was taken to Rome where the Holy Father immersed in his sorrow, is still hiding to elude dangerous demands (made upon him). He is still very weak, and exhausted by sorrows, cares and prayers. He can now trust but few people. That is mainly why he is hiding. But he still has with him an aged priest who has much simplicity and godliness. He is his friend and because of his simplicity they did not think it would be worth removing him. But this man receives many graces from God. He sees and notices a great many things which he faithfully reports to the Holy Father. It was required of me to inform him while he was praying, of the traitors and evil doers who were to be found among the high ranking servants living close to him, so that he might be made aware of it.”
October 1, 1820
“The Church is in great danger. We must pray so that the Pope may not leave Rome; countless evils would result if he did. They are now demanding something from him. The Protestant doctrine and that of the schismatic Greeks are to spread everywhere. I now see that in this place (Rome) the (Catholic) Church is being so cleverly undermined, that there hardly remain a hundred or so priests who have not been deceived. They all work for destruction, even the clergy. A great devastation is now near at hand.”
“In those days Faith will fall very low and it will be preserved in some places only.”
“The Little Black Man in Rome, whom I see so often, has many working for him without their clearly knowing for what end. He has his agents in the New Black Church also. If the Pope leaves Rome, the enemies of the Church will get the upper hand. …”
(N.b. The Jesuits wear black. The head of the Jesuits is referred to as the ”black pope”. Pope Francis is a Jesuit).
“I saw many pastors cherishing dangerous ideas against the Church. . . . I saw among other things. . . the Church under N___________. In all the rooms lay his children (that is, his plans), a full collection of his views. . . . He had set fire to the house, and I with others had to save the goods and convey them to the sheepfold. They built a large, singular, extravagant church which was “to embrace all creeds with equal rights; Evangelicals, Catholics and all denominations, a true communion of the unholy with one shepherd and one flock.….”
‘Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist.’
‘The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation..” [Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition, adds the following note after this paragraph. ‘I have from Melanie that the Church will be eclipsed in this sense, that 1) one will not know which is the true pope; 2) for a time: the holy Sacrifice will cease to be offered in churches, and also in houses: so there will be no more public worship. But she saw that yet the holy Sacrifice would not cease: it would be offered in caves, in tunnels, in barns and in alcoves.’]
“In this time the anti-Christ…will perform false miracles and subsist only on vitiating (i.e. contaminating) faith”
“There will be a series of wars until the last war which will then be fought by the kings of the anti-Christ, all of whom will have one and the same plan and will be the only rulers of the world...All civil governments will have one and the same plan: abolish and do away with every religious principal to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and vice of all kinds”.
“The Holy Father will suffer a great deal because for a while the Church will yield to large persecution, a time of darkness and the Church will witness a frightful crisis”
“Several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls…A great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion. Among these people, there will even be bishops”
“Italy will be punished for her ambition in wanting to shake off the yoke of the Lord of lords”
“These most crafty enemies [the devils] have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on Her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.”
Here is the prophecy of Pope Pius X, where he states that the “forced to flee” pope-martyr (also described by Sister Lucia of Fatima as the pope in white who will be killed) will have his name… Giuseppe = Joseph. This could only be Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict XVI:
” In 1909, during an audience for the general chapter of the Franciscan Order, Pope Pius X suddenly fell into a trance. The audience waited in reverent silence. When he awoke, the Pope cried out:
“What I see is terrifying! Will it be myself? Will it be my successor? What is certain is that the Pope will quit Rome, and in leaving the Vatican he will have to walk over the dead bodies of his priests. [This was precisely the vision sister Lucia received of the martyr pope dressed in white!] “Do not tell anyone this while I am alive.”
Just prior to his death (August 20, 1914), Pope Pius X had another vision:
“I have seen one of my successors, of the same name, who was fleeing over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in some hiding place; but after a brief respite he will die a cruel death.
“In the Third Secret [of Fatima] it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top.” —Mario L. Ciappi, Cardinal and household theologian to John Paul II; quoted in The Devil’s Final Battle, p. 33
“Satan rules even in the highest positions and determines the direction of things. He will succeed in worming his way even into the highest summits of the Church…”
“But this will be a time of great trials for the Church. Cardinals will oppose cardinals. Bishops will oppose bishops. Satan will walk in their ranks. In Rome, there will be great changes. What is rotten will fall and what will fall will never rise again. Darkness will envelope the Church and the world will be thrown into a panic.”
The quote given above is taken from a German periodical published in 1963, Neues Europa, and received unofficial approbation in the 1960’s by several Church officials who had read the original 3rd Secret text hand written by Sister Lucia. Among these Church officials was the respected Cardinal Ottovani. (Taken from: http://marienfried.com/catholic%20teachings/prophecy%20of%20apostasy.html
At an interview of (Jesuit) Fr Malachi Martin in 1998, who was present at the reading of the Third Secret in 1960 by Pope John XXIII, Art Bell asked him if the statement that “The last pope will be under the control of satan” is true and really part of the Third Secret,– he replies “Yes. That is correct”. See the whole interview at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn–7GTffn8. See especially: 1h:46m:30s to 1h:47m:20s
The world will be afflicted with wars, famine, the martyrdom of the good, persecution of the Church and the Holy Father, the annihilation of nations, and apostasy from the one true Faith.
“The mystical body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from among our bishops.”
“We are living in the days of the Apocalypse–the last days of our era…. The two great forces of the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of Antichrist are beginning to draw up the battle lines for the catastrophic contest.” (Flynn T & L. The Thunder of Justice. Maxkol Communications, Sterling, VA, 1993, p. 20)
He also said:
“The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church [the Catholic Church] will be one. And the False Prophet will create the other. The false church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches. And religions forming some type of global association. A world parliament of churches. It will be emptied of all divine content and will be the mystical body of the Antichrist.
“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 true Faith 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?’
The third message on October 13, 1973, (the actual anniversary of the final visions and miracle of Fatima) is as follows:
.. . Each day, recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests.
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their Confreres. The Church and altars will be vandalized. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord”.
“The demon will rage especially against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will no longer be pardon for them.”
Message #406, June 13 1989
“This masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by Me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church.”
Message #485, December 31, 1992
“I have announced to you many times that the end of the times and the coming of Jesus in glory is very near. Now, I want to help you understand the signs described in the Holy Scriptures, which indicate that his glorious return is now close.”
The first sign is the spread of errors, which lead to the loss of faith and to apostasy. These errors are being propagated by false teachers, by renowned theologians who are no longer teaching the truths of the gospel, but pernicious heresies based on errors and on human reasoning. It is because of the teaching of these errors that the true faith is being lost and that the great apostasy is spreading everywhere.”
Message # 383, May 22, 1988, Feast of the Pentecost
“…Even now, that which I predicted at Fatima and that which I have revealed here in the third message confided to a little daughter of mine is in the process of being accomplished. And so, even for the Church the moment of its great trial has come, because the man of iniquity will establish himself within it and the abomination of desolation will enter into the holy temple of God.”
“First of all, a great apostasy is spreading in every part of the Church, through the lack of faith which is flooding even among its very pastors. Satan has succeeded in spreading everywhere the great apostasy, by means of his subtle work of seduction, which has brought many to be alienated from the truth of the Gospel to follow the fables of the new theological theories and to take delight in evil and in sin, sought after as an actual good”
“This great apostasy is spreading more and more, even through the interior of the Catholic Church. Errors are being taught and spread about, while the fundamental truths of the faith, which the authentic Magisterium of the Church has always taught and energetically defended against any heretical deviation whatsoever, are being denied with impunity.
“Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves”.
This is just a taste. I have not included prophecies about the Warning (Illumination of Consciences) and the 3 days of darkness for the sake of brevity. I have also omitted saints such as St Bridget of Sweden (1300’s), St Nicholas of Flue (15th century), St Nilos-Gusher of Mount Athos (1600’s), St John Bosco, Pope Pius IX (1909), St Faustina, St Padre Pio, and many others. They all complement and affirm each other and are included in our booklet. This can be downloaded: see menu item (on front page): “Tools for Evangelization.”
Our non-Catholic Christian friends prefer Biblical references. These include St Matthew’s Gospel Chapter 24,;Deureronomy 13:1-4; Thessalonians 2: 1-12 ; Revelation 13: 13-15; Daniel 7:25; Daniel 8;25; Daniel 11:36-37; Revelation 13: 17; Matthew 25:31-34; 2 Peter 3: 3-13
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 –
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.
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.
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%.
(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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
