Miracle at Knock, Ireland:

knockir_painting-678x381

It had been pouring rain all day on 21st August, 1879. In the evening, 15 local people saw the apparition of Mary, St Joseph, St John the Evangelist, and a lamb standing on an altar before a cross, in front of the parish church’s gable wall.

The vision was very clear. It stood out from the gable wall of the church, and was about 2 feet from the ground.  To the west of it appeared the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and St. John.

The vision lasted for about two to three hours and then faded.

https://www.irishcentral.com/roots/history/knock-virgin-mary

Knock, IrelandOur Lady was in the centre of the apparition and was the tallest of them all. She was wearing a large brilliant gold crown and was clothed in white garments. Her hands were raised in prayer and her eyes gazed toward heaven.

To her right was her spouse, St. Joseph, whose head was inclined toward her.

To her left was St. John the Evangelist, who was attired as a bishop wearing a mitre and was holding a book, (perhaps his book of the Apocalypse) in his left hand. His right hand was raised as if he were preaching.

To the left of St. John was an altar on which stood a cross and a lamb surrounded by angels.

Though it was raining, the ground beneath the vision was dry. The constant rain represented the sorrow and the tears relating to Our Lady, the Church and the world.

The enigma of the apparition at Knock was its silence.  There was no message given, unlike at other apparition sites.

The unspoken message was one of love and solidarity with the perseveringly faithful Irish in their time of suffering and sorrow. They had suffered famine and potato blight since 1847. https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2018/08/21/the-unspoken-message-of-heaven-at-knock/

What could all this mean?

  • It was the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Heart reminding us of the Seven Sorrows of our Lady.
  • It was to remind us that the Eucharist – the Mass – is the source and summit of the Christian life.
  • The angels are there, as they are at each Mass, around the Lamb, adoring and praising Him..
  • Mary, the tallest, with her gold crown and white garments, is the Queen of Our Lady of Knockheaven and earth. Mary is also Queen of the angels. She will crush the head of Satan.
  • The Cross and the Lamb also testify to the Eucharistic Sacrifice and to our Salvation by Jesus on the Cross. (Jesus is the Lamb of God).
  • Mary was in the centre, in front of the Cross and looking up to heaven with hands joined. She is praying and interceding for us – she is the Co-Redemptrix
  • St Joseph’s head was inclined to her – as if telling us to listen to our Mother and Co-Redemptrix.
  • St Joseph, the patriarch of the Church, is seen bowing in prayer –  praying for the Church as it goes through its crucifixion, and as patron saint of the Family, is interceding for us at this time when the definition of family is much under attack with same sex marriage legally accepted and on the rise, the evils of abortion and euthanasia becoming wider spread.
  • Mary, herself is the Mother of the Church.
  • There was Silence, which is the essence of prayer. At the foot of the Cross, Mary said nothing. The silence was a deep, contemplative silence.

It was a silence of prayer, of doing penance and of placing ourselves at the foot of the Cross and being in union with Christ’s sufferings.  It is to let us know that Jesus is with us in our times of suffering and sorrow.

La Salette  and Knock are connected

  • The apparition at Knock occurred at the very hour that the Basilica at La Salette was consecrated
  • For this reason, the sorrows which were part of Our Lady’s message at La Salette, are obviously connected to the apparition at Knock.
  • The ‘Hand of God” at La Salette and book of St John (the Apocalypse) are one and the same – i.e. lack of faith, sin and chastisement..

Knock and Book of Truth are connected and inter-related:

  • La Salette, Knock and the Book of Truth are about the times which are upon us – they concern “the mission of salvation”; a plea for penance and prayer – in order to save souls and to help us survive these times.
  • They point to sin and apostasy in the world; to the neglect of the Eucharist and the Mass; to Mary, our Mother, who intercedes and cries for her children (Co-Redemptrix).
  • St John the Evangelist (from the Knock vision, and preaching from his book), is also one of the saints in the Book of Truth, in which Jesus explains the events of the Book of Revelation/Apocalypse, which has been hidden until this time. Knock foretells the Apocalypse. In the Book of Truth, Jesus laments that His “sacred servants” have not prepared His children for His Second coming. They have not preached about the Book of Revelation. This is portrayed by St John in the Knock vision, holding the Book of Revelation in his hand and preaching from it, in his role as a Bishop.
  • The actual Church at Knock is the place where Maria received her first call to the Mission that God had selected for her (the Book of Truth): that is the ‘Mission of Salvation’ which encapsulates all of Our Lady’s church-approved appearances which prophesy these end times.(https://missionofsalvation.com/2018/03/18/thinking-of-ireland-on-st-patricks-day
  • The lamb on the altar, represents the Lamb of God. It is the Lamb, mentioned in Revelation Chapter 5, that is worthy to open the Seals. The Seals were mentioned in the Book of Daniel, who was told the Seals had to be kept sealed, until the time of the end. In the Book of Truth, Jesus, (the Lamb of God) opens the Seals and explains the events recorded in John’s book. He warns us of the events, which are happening today, and how we are to prepare, and what to expect. He interprets Revelations, as only the Lamb of God can do.

+++++++++++++++++++++

In the end, all of God’s prophecies (through His Mother and other chosen souls) will be fulfilled: Quito, La Salette, Leo XIII, Knock, Fatima and others.

These heavenly interventions are to guide us
and support us through these times.
They are a sign of God’s Love and Mercy!

Messages from the Book of Truth:

  • 5 December 2013 @ 2:00pm; Message 0983la-salette-o-pranto-de-nossa-senhora

“ My child, the world will witness the prophecies of La Salette as the enemies of God, dressed as wolves in sheeps’ clothing, will now stand up proudly within my Son’s Church on Earth and begin to declare the heresies which I warned the world about. That time has arrived.

As foretold, the darkness has already descended upon the Church and this plan to devour the souls of the faithful will continue until the Body of my Son is desecrated in accordance with the plan of the antichrist.  What many people do not know is that the enemies of God, led by the antichrist – still to make himself known – believe in God. Not only do they believe in God, but because they detest everything to do with God, they will plot against His Plans to prepare the world for the Second Coming of my Son, Jesus Christ.” ( Mother of Salvation)

  • 13 August 2014 @ 2:39pm; Message 1191

My dear children, the time for the prophecies of La Salette and Fatima to be fulfilled is very close. You must not fear these times but, rather, embrace them for you must know that My Father’s Covenant will be finally completed as it was meant to be. The antichrist will, eventually, take up his seat in my Son’s Church on earth and nothing will prevent this from happening.

++++++++++++++++++

In the Book of Truth, our Mother of Salvation refers to the prophecies of La Salette. The prophecies are not just for the people at that time (e.g. blasphemy, not keeping God’s name holy, famine…) – as with all of our Lady’s other prophecies, they are for us in these times – for today!

What exactly are the prophecies of La Salette referred to by Our Lady?

What other signs were there to warn us?

What connection does it have with the Book of Truth and the Miracle at Knock in Ireland?

Our Lady of La Salette’s Appearance

OL La Salette tearsThe two children, Melanie and Maximin, were herding their cows and had fallen asleep for a little while. When they woke, they noticed a ‘globe of fire’. The light swirled, then grew in size and, opening, disclosed within it a woman, seated, her head in her hands, her elbows on her knees, in the attitude of one oppressed with grief.

They looked at her and noticed that she did not cease weeping all the time she spoke to them. …The beautiful Lady was tall and seemed to be made of light. She was dressed like women of the region with a long dress, an apron nearly as long as the dress, a shawl that crossed over her breast and was knotted in the back, and a cap or bonnet similar to the ones worn by peasant women. Roses crowned her head while another wreath of roses adorned the edges of her white shawl and a third garland surrounded her shoes. Over her brow shone a light in the form of a diadem.

On her shoulders shone a heavy chain and from a smaller golden chain hung aOL La Salette - implements of passion resplendent crucifix with a hammer and pincers placed on each side of the Cross, a little beyond the nailed hands.

In the picture (above), we can clearly see the heavy chains on her shoulders. In the picture below, we can clearly see the crucifix on the smaller chain, on which we see the hammer and pincers as described in the vision .’

“She bore the symbols of the Passion, the chains, cross, hammer, nails, to show that She was the Cor-redemptrix. She appeared on the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. …” ( Editor, FromRome)

Our Lady comes dressed as the local people are. It signifies, that she comes as our Mother who is weeping bitterly for her children, and the many sins with which we afflict her Son, and the punishment that God is ready to inflict, if we do not change our ways.

“She wept all the time that she spoke to us…I clearly saw her tears, they flowed and flowed unceasingly”.

How can we resist the tears of her who is “compelled to pray without ceasing for us”?

‘The tears of Mary at La Salette recall those she shed on Mount Calvary and are a sign of her unceasing tenderness in our regard: they teach us the gravity of our refusals and indifference, and the urgency of our conversion. The tears of the Mother of God and our Mother show us the importance we must attach to her message.’. https://www.lasalette.org/about-la-salette/apparition/the-story/705-the-message-of-la-salette.html

The messages:

  • ‘Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist.’

  • ‘The demons of the air with the antichrist will perform great wonders on the earth and in the air, and men will corrupt themselves more and more. God will have care of His faithful servants and men of good will; the Gospel will be preached everywhere, all peoples and all nations will have knowledge of the truth!’

  • OL La Salette - appearance‘I address a pressing appeal to the earth: I call upon the true disciples of God living and reigning in the heavens; I call upon the true imitators of Christ made man, the only and true savior of men; I call upon my children, my true devotees, those who have given themselves to me so that I may guide them to my divine Son, those whom I carry so to speak in my arms, those who have lived by my spirit; finally I call upon the Apostles of the last times, the faithful disciples of Jesus Christ who have lived in a contempt for the world and for themselves, in poverty and in humility, in contempt and in silence, in prayer and in mortification, in chastity and in union with God, in suffering and unknown to the world. It is time that they go out and come to enlighten the earth. Go, and show yourselves as my dear children; I am with you and in you, provided that your faith be the light which enlightens you in these days of woe. May your zeal render you like the starving for the glory and honor of Jesus Christ. Fight, children of light; you, the small number who can see, for behold the time of times, the end of ends.’

  • ‘The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation. But behold Enoch and Elie filled with the Spirit of God; they will preach with the strength of God, and men of goodwill will believe in God, and many souls will be consoled; they will make great progress by the virtue of the Holy Spirit and will condemn the devilish errors of the antichrist.’

  • Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition of this secret, 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.’

More Messages

  • “If my people will not submit, I shall be forced to let fall the arm of my Son. It is so strong, so heavy, that I can no longer withhold it.

  • . A great country in the north of Europe, now Protestant, will be converted; by the support of this country all the other nations of the world will be converted.

 “…Before all that arrives, great disorders will arrive, in the Church, and everywhere.

  • Then, after [that], our Holy Father the Pope will be persecuted.

  • …The time of God’s wrath has arrived! If, when you say to the people what I have said to you so far, and what I will still ask you to say,

 “…if, after that, they do not convert, (if they do not do penance, and they do not cease working on Sunday, and if they continue to blaspheme the Holy Name of God), in a word, if the face of the earth does not change, God will be avenged against the people ungrateful and slave of the demon. My Son will make his power manifest!

  • …When these things arrive, the disorder will be complete on the earth, the world will be given up to its impious passions.

  • The pope will be persecuted from all sides, they will shoot at him, they will want to put him to death, but no one will be able to do it, the Vicar of God will triumph again this time

  • The priests and the Sisters, and the true servants of my Son will be persecuted, and several will die for the faith of Jesus Christ.

  • A famine will reign at the same time.

  • “…many will recognize the hand of God on them, they will convert, and do penance for their sins. …[Among] God’s ministers, and the Spouses of Jesus-Christ, there will be some who will go astray, and that will be the most terrible.

  • Lastly, hell will reign on earth. It will be then that the Antichrist will be born of a Sister, but woe to her! Many will believe in him, because he will claim to have come from heaven, woe to those who will believe in him!

Meaning for us today:

The messages of La Salette are plentiful. They are laden with sorrow, and this is also conveyed through the appearance of our Blessed Mother, who weeps bitter tears and the symbolism of the heavy chains on her shoulders and the instruments of the Crucifixion and Cross around her neck.

There is much to ponder in the messages of La Salette. Jesus refers to La Salette (and other Marian appearances) in the Book of Truth. The relevant themes, are repeated in the messages of the Book of Truth. (They are highlighted in the excerpts of the La Salette messages above.)

The widespread sinfulness of the people at that time, the blasphemies of the Holy Name and the violations of Sunday as a Holy day, are all easily translated to events in our world today. Also events such as: persecution of the pope; great disorders; God’s wrath; persecution of priests; sisters and the “true servants” of Jesus; “the world given up to in its impious passions; – cannot be denied..

We are told that the Holy Sacrifce will cease to be offered: in the last 18 months, public Masses have been forbidden and limited – churches closed, most Masses being live-streamed. Indeed, there are some priests offering Masses covertly, visiting homes when they can. It will become much worse, (see what Our Lady of La Salette has to say), but we have seen the beginning! We can see it all unfolding before us.

The punishments that Our Lady of La Salette foretold, were hunger and famine, God’s Hand of Justice- things that have been repeated by our Blessed Mother many times over the centuries.

The chains weighing Our Lady down are not only the sins of her children, but the many proclamations, blasphemies and heresies being issued from the Vatican. She warns us of the enemies of God, the Antichrist and the darkness.

Book of Truth and La Salette:

All the aforementioned events have been pointed out to us in the Book of Truth, as well as the following:

  • The antichrist who will perform wonders
  • The darkness
  • The two ‘popes’
  • “The Apostles of the last times” referred to by Jesus in the Book of Truth as His “Remnant Army”
  • Enoch and Elijah who “will preach with the strength of God” are also mentioned in the Book of Truth as the “two witnesses “.
  • The “great country in the north” which will be converted, is also prophesied in the Book of Truth.

Fatima and the Third Secret – what has been revealed

AM+DG

Over the years, we have posted various articles about this subject.

There has been much evidence to prove that the message revealed in 2000 was not complete. In the Book of Truth, Our Lady tells us more information. An example from one of her messages is below:

” … I gave the world the prophecies in 1917, but the last secret of Fatima was not revealed, so terrifying was it for those within the Catholic Church.

The last secret of Fatima still remains unknown to God’s children, although part of it was revealed to you on  26 January, 2012.  Very few within the Church are privy to this. Now, the next part of the final secret of Fatima must be revealed, so that I can warn humanity of the consequences of ignoring my intervention to help save souls.

The Church has been infested, from the inside, by enemies of God. They – and there are twenty of them who control from within – have created the greatest deceit. They have elected a man, not of God, while the Holy Father, accorded the Crown of Peter, has been carefully removed.

The details, which I revealed, are that there would be two men wearing the Crown of Peter in the end times. One will suffer because of lies which have been created to discredit him and which will render him a virtual prisoner. The other one elected will bring about the destruction, not only of the Catholic Church, but of all Churches which honour my Father and who accept the Teachings of my Son, Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world.

There can only be one head of the Church on earth, authorised by my Son, who must remain pope until his death...

Children, you must only heed one warning, now. Do not deviate from the Teachings of my Son. Question every new doctrine, which may be presented to you and which professes to come from my Son’s Church on earth. The truth is simple.  It never changes. My Son’s legacy is very clear. Do not allow anyone to cloud your judgement.

Soon the Fatima prophecies will make sense. All is now taking place before a disbelieving world, but sadly, very few will understand until it is too late. Pray, pray, pray my most Holy Rosary, as often as possible, every single day, in order to dilute the effect of the evil, which surrounds you.

Your beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation

Destruction from within – Part 1

AM+DG

The destruction of the Catholic church has long been prophesied that it will come from within! Who could have ever thought such a thing? We trusted in our popes, cardinals, bishops and priests. They could not lead us astray!

Yet we were warned!!!

Fr. Gobbi:

“…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 taught with impunityDestruction will come from within

Akita:

“…The Church and altars will be vandalized. The Church will be full of tose who accept compromises d the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leve the service of the lOrd.”

Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1950)

“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.”

Fatima:

“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,…”

Anne Catherine Emmerich:

“,,,there hardly remain a hundred or so priests who have not been deceived. They all work for destruction, even the clergy….

“Infiltration”  a book by Dr Taylor Marshall

“ It took nearly two millennia for the enemies of the Catholic Church to realize they could not successfully attack the Church from the outside. Indeed, countless nemeses from Nero to Napoleon succeeded only in creating sympathy and martyrs for our Catholic Faith.

That all changed in the mid-19th century, when clandestine societies populated by Modernists and Marxists hatched a plan to subvert the Catholic Church from within. Their goal: to change Her doctrine, Her liturgy, and Her mission.

In this captivating and carefully documented book, Dr. Taylor Marshall pulls back the curtain on their nefarious plan, showing how these enemies of Christ strategically infiltrated the seminaries, then the priesthood, then the episcopacy, and eventually the cardinal-electors – all with the eventual goal of electing one of their own as pope.

You’ll come to see that the seemingly endless scandals plaguing the Church are not the result, as so many think, of cultural changes, or of Vatican II, but rather the natural consequences of an orchestrated demonic plot to destroy the Church.”

The Freemasonry Plan

The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita (commonly called the Alta Vendita) is a document, originally published in Italian in 1859. …

The document details an alleged Masonic plan to infiltrate the Catholic Church and spread liberal ideas within it.

From: https://christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/66282/what-is-the-connection-of-alta-vendita-in-the-present-church-crisis-regarding-ho

It is corruption en masse that we have undertaken: the corruption of the people by the clergy, and the corruption of the clergy by ourselves; the corruption which ought, one day to enable us to put the Church in her tomb. I have recently heard one of our friends, laughing in a philosophic manner at our projects, say to us: “in order to destroy Catholicism it is necessary to commence by suppressing woman.” The words are true in a sense; but since we cannot suppress woman, let us corrupt her with the Church, corruptio optimi pessima [the corruption of the best is the worst]. The object we have in view is sufficiently good to tempt men such as we are; let us not separate ourselves from it for some miserable personal satisfaction of vengeance. The best poniard with which to strike the Church is corruption. To work, then, even to the very end.”

Another aspect is the Communist infiltration into seminaries. Bella Dodd was a spy who revealed this strategy of corruption”

+++++++++++++++++++++

This  infiltration is confirmed in the Book of Truth:

  • 13 September 2014 @ 10:50pm

Among the evangelists, there will rise many false prophets.

“My dearly beloved daughter, soon the changes I foretold, concerning My Church on earth, will be revealed.

The secular sects will shortly attempt to take everything, which My followers hold sacred, and introduce a new modern movement, within the Church …”

  • Mother of Salvation: Wicked plan, within the Vatican, to destroy the Catholic Church
18 January 2012 @ 9:50am; Message 0311

“…Pope Benedict XVI is being plotted against, within his own corridors, by an evil sect. This sect is known to exist among those sacred servants within the Vatican, yet they are powerless against this evil group, which has infiltrated the Catholic Church for centuries.

They are responsible for twisting the Truth of my Son’s Teachings. So little is known about them or their vile works.

They have driven the True Doctrine from the Catholic Church and, in its place a lukewarm, watered down version has been force-fed to Catholics over the last forty years.

So much confusion has been spread by this wicked, but, hidden sect, that my children have wandered away from the True Church. …

Pray that those sacred servants in the Vatican are strong enough to withstand this evil plot, designed to destroy the Catholic Church.

They plan to replace the Holy Vicar, Pope Benedict XVI, with a dictator of lies. He will create a new church in league with the antichrist and his group, in order to deceive the world.

Sadly, many of my children will, in their allegiance to the Catholic faith, follow blindly this new false doctrine, like lambs to the slaughter.

Wake up, children, to the Truth. This wicked plan has changed the fundamental authenticity of the Catholic Doctrine over the years….”

Some excerpts from the Alta Vendita.

A detailed list can be found in the link above. You will noticed that much of the plan has already been accomplished.

“Remove once and for all St. Michael, the protector of the Catholic Church, from all the prayers within the Mass and outside of the Mass. Remove the statues, saying that they distract from the Adoration of Christ. …

2. Remove the Penitential Exercises of Lent such as abstinence from meat on Fridays or even fasting; impede every act of self-sacrifice. In their place should be favored acts of joy, happiness and love of neighbor. …

3.Assign the Protestant ministers to reconsider the Holy Mass and to desecrate it. Sown doubts about the Real Presence in the Eucharist … Spread Protestants in seminaries and schools. Encourage ecumenism as the path towards unity. …

      1. Prohibited the Latin liturgy of the Mass, adoration and songs, because they communicate a sense of mystery and deference. …
      2. Encourage women not to cover their heads with a veil in church. The hair is sexy. Demand woman readers and women priests. …. Those who enter the church should dressed badly in order to feel at home. This will reduce the importance of the Mass.

6.Prevent the faithful from taking Holy Communion kneeling. … Eliminate in the church kneeling and any genuflection. …

7.Eliminate the sacred music of the organ. Introduce the guitar, jew’s harps, drums, trampling and holy laughter in the churches. ….Perform liturgical dances around the altar in exciting clothes, theaters and concerts.

8.Remove the sacred character from the songs to the Mother of God and of St. Joseph. …Introduce Protestant songs. …

9… Preach love, tolerance and unity. Do not mention Jesus, prohibit any announcements of the Eucharist.

      1. Remove all the relics of saints and later also from the Altars themselves. Replace them with pagan tables not consecrated which can be used to offer human sacrifices during satanic masses. Eliminate the Ecclesiastical law which wants the celebration of the Holy Mass only on Altars containing relics.

11. Discontinue the practice of celebrating the Holy Mass in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament in the Tabernacle. Do not admit any Tabernacle on the Altars that are used for the celebration of the Holy Mass. The board should have the appearance of a kitchen table. 

      1. Let the saints disappear from the Ecclesiastical calendar, leaving always some at fixed times. Prohibit the priests from preaching about the Saints, except for those that are mentioned in the Gospel. … Avoid anything that disturbs the Protestants.
      2. In the Gospel reading omit the word “holy”, for example, instead of “the Gospel according to St. John,” simply say: “Gospel according to John.” This will make the people think that they should not venerate the saints anymore. Continuously write new bibles so that they will identical to the …Eliminate the use of the term “Father.

IS IT LOGICAL THAT A MAN WHO OCCUPIES THE CHAIR OF PETER CAN BE BOTH A HERETIC AND THE POPE?

AM+DG

Reblog from Bp. Gracia’s website. See reblogged article below the Comment.

(Comment by admin/editor of RemnantDiscciples JtM):

The article by Fr. Belland expresses what all true Catholic faithful feel is true, and must be so – yet they cannot see that this exactly means that the obvious answer staring them in the face, is that Benedict is the true pope. If they investigated all the intricacies of canon law, they would see this. (How about just reading Bro Alexis Bugnolo’s examination of this question?)  In fact if they read the prophecies from saints – it would be clear as a bell.

God would not want us to be confounded, but knowing the minds of men, have sent us prophets, as in the Old Testament and New Testament when His people were in trouble. Granted, people to not always listen to prophets and they were always despised and struggled to to be heard, but this is not so today. We have people who have been proclaimed saintswho would doubt them? If there was any doubt about anything a saint said or did, do you think that they would be canonized?

Would you doubt St Francis of Assisi? He told us 800 years ago that there would be 2 popes – one would not be a true pope, but a destroyer! Well, guess who fits the bill?! Why don’t all priests and bishops proclaim this fact? Don’t they believe that God would sent saints?

What about Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich? She told us a lot about the Pope who “lives in a palace other than before” and who is suffering in Rome, and about the “Little Black Man” . In case you don’t know, Jesuits wear black, and the head of the Jesuits (which Bergoglio once was), has always traditionally been referred to as “the black pope”. She also mentions that “He has his agents in the NEW Black Church also” and many other things about him.

What about Our Lady – would they believe her? Way back in 1846, at La Salette, she said that “one will not know which is the true pope”. She also told us that “Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist”. This of course was confirmed at Fatima, but they were all too fearful to obey and pronounce the Third Secret in 1960, and the complete message is still under wrap.

What about St Paul? In his 2nd letter to the Thessalonians (2: 1-12), he speaks of the antichrist, then he says (vs.6-7) : “And now you know what has been restraining him (from being revealed), that he may be revealed in his time.only he who now restrains  does so, until he is taken out of the way“.

It seems to me that this fits perfectly to what Fr Belland says in article below. Pope Benedict is the solution. When he is taken out of Rome  (see Bl. A.C. Emmerich), the Antichrist will be revealed.. Benedict is the one who restrains, (see St Paul 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12).

IS IT LOGICAL THAT A MAN WHO OCCUPIES THE CHAIR OF PETER CAN BE BOTH A HERETIC AND THE POPE?

Father David R. Belland writes to Abyssum out of his deep felt concern and love for the Church.

He suggests that If Our Lord promised that “the gates of hell shall not prevail against it,” His Bride, He means it.  Yet, what if a man who claims to be a pope becomes a heretic or seemingly teaches heresy?  That question has been pondered down the ages, and to this day no absolute answer has really been provided.  In fact, for all the hypothetical scenarios concerning heresy, the possible solutions proposed by the learned theologians are just that: possible, but not in any way certain.  Michael Davies in his book, I Am with You Always: The Divine Constitution and Indefectibility of the Catholic Church, says the following:

 Saint Robert was (in De Romano Pontifice Vol. II, chap. 30, p. 720), of course, discussing a theoretical possibility, and believed that a pope could not become an heretic and thus could not be deposed, but he also acknowledged that the more common opinion was that the pope could become an heretic, and he was thus willing to discuss what would need to be done if, per impossible, this should happen: ‘This opinion (that the Pope could not become an heretic) is probable and easily defended. . . . Nonetheless, in view of the fact that this is not certain, and that the common opinion is the opposite one, it is useful to examine the solution to this question, within the hypothesis that the Pope can be an heretic’ [De Romano Pontifice, Vol. II, chap.30, p.418].  The great Jesuit theologian, Francisco de Suarez (1548-1617) was also sure that God’s ‘sweet providence’ would never allow the one who could not teach error to fall into error, and that this was guaranteed by the promise Ego autem rogavi pro te… (Luke 22:32).  But, like Bellarmine, Suarez was willing to consider the possibility of an heretical pope as an hypothesis, particularly in view of the fact, he claimed, that several ‘general councils had admitted the hypothesis in question’ [De legibus, vol. IV, chap. 7, no. 10, p 361].  Saint Alphonsus Ligouri (1696-1787) did not believe that God would ever permit a Roman Pontiff to become a public or an occult (secret) heretic, even as a private person:  ‘We ought rightly to presume as Cardinal Bellarmine declared, that God will never let it happen that a Roman Pontiff, even as a private person, become a public heretic or an occult heretic’ [Dogmatic Works of St. Alphonsus Maria de Ligouri, Vol. VIII, p. 720].”[1] 

 [1] Michael Davies, I Am With You Always: The Divine Constitution and Indefectibility of the Catholic Church, New rev. ed. 1997, The Neumann Press, Long Prairie, Minnesota, 1997, pp. 44 – 4 )

 Certainly, God would not allow his Church to be left in the dust of doubt either with regard to Faith or with regard to Morals. Considering the reality of the situation in the Church today, therefore, one that is absolutely unparalleled, indeed exceptional, can one really look to the past for a solution, which no one has actually demonstrated to be absolutely workable for past crises, or to merely theoretical scenarios envisioned for the future?  Yet, those theoretical problems discussed in the past in no way even remotely approach the unprecedented reality here and now.  

The mind of Father David R. Belland resolutely balks at the idea. He asks: “Does it not seem more likely that the unprecedented reality of today demands an unprecedented concrete solution?  And can you guess what’s coming; yes, you’re right, Benedict is that unprecedented, yet concrete, solution that if looked into can be seen as that unquestionable protection of God.”

Perhaps a better way of stating the QUESTION is this.

A man who occupies the Chair of Peter is called the Pope.

A man who occupies the Chair of Peter seems to be a public heretic or occult heretic, yet it is not reasonable that God would ever permit a Roman Pontiff to become a public or an occult (secret) heretic, even as a private person: 

Ergo, such a man who occupies the Chair of Peter is not the Pope.

Some not well known prophecies from Saints for these times,

AM+DG

Padre Pio (1887-1968)

St Padre Pio

Almost sixty years ago, Padre Pio first met Father Luigi Villa, whom he entreated to devote his entire life to fight Ecclesiastical Freemasonry. Padre Pio told Father Villa that Our Lord had designs upon him and had chosen him to be educated and trained to fight Freemasonry within the Church. The Saint spelled out this task in three meetings with Father Villa, which took place in the last fifteen years of life of Padre Pio. At the close of the second meeting [second half of 1963], Padre Pio embraced Father Villa three times, saying to him:

‘Be brave, now…for the Church has already been invaded by Freemasonry!’ and then stated: ‘Freemasonry has already made it into the loafers (shoes) of the Pope!’ At the time, the reigning “Pope” was Paul VI and of course a Freemason, according to the 1917 Code of Canon Law, cannot be a Catholic as you are automatically excommunicated. “Persons joining associations of the Masonic sect or any others of the same kind which plot against the Church and legitimate civil authorities contract, ipso facto, excommunication simply reserved to the Apostolic See”-Canon Law 2335. (1917)

St. Antony of Egypt (251-356)

“Men will surrender to the spirit of the age. They will say that if they had lived in our day, faith would be simple and easy. But in their day, they will say, things are complex; the Church must be brought up to date and made meaningful to the day’s problems. When the Church and the World are one, then those days are at hand. Because our Divine Master placed a barrier between His things and the things of the world.”
“A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying: ‘You are mad; you are not like us.'”

St. Athanasius (296-373)

St. Athanasius (A.D. 296 – A.D. 2 May 373), known as the “Father of Orthodoxy,” was Bishop of Alexandria at the height of the power of the Arians who denied the two natures of Christ (i.e., they denied His Divinity). The Arians gained great influence in the Church, their power becoming so vast that the majority of Bishops could be described as Arian. He was excommunicated by Pope Liberius, driven from his see by a heretic usurper and spent his life in and out of exile.

St. Athanasius, to whom it was objected, “You have the bishops against you,” answered with Faith: “that proves that they are all against the Church. If the world goes against the truth, then Athanasius goes against the world.”Athanasius contra mundum

“God has promised to be like a wall of fire round those who rightly believe in Him.”

“Catholics who remain faithful to Tradition even if they are reduced to but a handful, they are the True Church of Jesus Christ.”

“May God console you!...What saddens you…is the fact that others have occupied the churches by violence, while during this time you are on the outside. It is a fact that they have the premises, but you have the Apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: What is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in this struggle? The one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith?”

St. Ambrose (340-397)

“Even heretics appear to possess Christ, for none of them denies the name of Christ. Still, anyone who does not confess everything that pertains to Christ does in fact deny Christ.”

St. John Chrysostom (347-407)

What excuse shall he have, what mercy can be hoped for, who corrupts the adorable and ineffable dogmas of our faith?”
foulness invade sthe church,

 

St. Columba (521-597)

“Hearken, hearken to what will happen in the latter days of the world! There will be great wars; unjust laws will be enacted; the Church will be despoiled of her property; people will read and write a great deal; but charity and humility will be laughed to scorn, and the common people will believe in false ideas.”

St. Vincent of Lérins (†445)

“When a foulness invades the whole Church . . . We must return to the Church of the past.”

He also stated in 490 AD: “In the Catholic Church herself every care must be taken that we may hold fast to that which has been believed everywhere, always, and by all. For this is truly and properly Catholic.”

“All novelty in faith is a sure mark of heresy. St. Paul cried out aloud, again and again, to all men to all times, and to all places that, if anyone announces a new dogma, let him be anathematized!”

St. Dominic (1170-1221)

Blessed Virgin Mary to Saint Dominic, “One Day through the Rosary and Scapular I will save the World”–  Our Lady would confirm this warning at Fatima (1917) by appearing as Our Lady of the Rosary and ending these apparitions as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel wearing the brown habit of the Carmelites and holding the Brown Scapular.

St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380)

“We’ve had enough of exhortations to be silent! Cry out with a hundred thousand tongues. I see that the world is rotten because of silence.”

 

St. Vincent Ferrer (1350-1419)

“Armies from the West, East, and North will fight together in Italy, and the Eagle shall capture the false king, and all things shall be made obedient unto him, and there shall be a new reformation in the world.”

” In the days of peace that are to come after the desolation of revolutions and wars, before the end of the world Christians will become so lax in their religion that they will refuse the sacrament of Confirmation, saying that it is unnecessary. And when the false prophet, the precursor of Antichrist, comes, all who are not confirmed will apostatize, while those who are confirmed will stand fast in their faith, and only a few will renounce Christ.”

St. Robert Bellarmine (1542-1621)

“A pope who is a manifest heretic automatically (per se) ceases to be pope and head, just as he ceases automatically to be a Christian and a member of the Church. Wherefore, he can be judged and punished by the Church. This is the teaching of the ancient Fathers who teach that manifest heretics immediately lose all jurisdiction.”, De Romano Pontifice, II.30 [citing passages from Cyprian, Driedonus, and Melchoir Cano in support of his position]

“And we ourselves experience this, that when we enter ornate and clean Basilicas, adorned with crosses, sacred images, altars, and burning lamps, we most easily conceive devotion. But, on the other hand, when we enter the temples of the heretics, where there is nothing except a chair for preaching and a wooden table for making a meal, we feel ourselves to be entering a profane hall and not the house of God.Octava Controversia Generalis, liber II, Controversia Quinta, caput XXXI.

St. Peter Canisius (1521-1597)

“Better that only a few Catholics should be left, staunch and sincere in their religion, than that they should, remaining many, desire as it were, to be in collusion with the Church’s enemies and in conformity with the open foes of our faith.”

St. Nicholas von Flue (1417-1487)

The Church will be punished because the majority of Her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until She will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, She will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters.”

St. Thomas More (1478-1535)

“I do not care if I have against me all the Bishops; I have with me the Saints and all the doctors of the Church.”

“For one Bishop of your opinion, I have a hundred Saints of mine, for one parliament of yours, and God alone knows what kind, I have all the General Councils for a thousand years.”

St. Cyprian (200-258)

“To adhere to a false Bishop of Rome is to be out of communion with the Church.”

Some not-well known prophecies from Popes about these times

AM+DG

Pope St. Leo the Great (400-461)

“He that sees another in error, and endeavors not to correct it, testifies himself to be in error.”

Pope St. Felix III (†492)

“Not to oppose error, is to approve it, and not to defend truth is to suppress it, and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them.”

Pope Pius IV (1499-1565)

“We declare that if ever it should appear that any bishop, even one acting as an Archbishop, Patriarch, or Primate, or a Cardinal of the Roman Church, or a legate, or even the Roman Pontiff, whether prior to his promotion to Cardinal, or prior to his election as Roman Pontiff, has beforehand deviated from the Catholic Faith or fallen into any heresy, we enact, we decree, we determine, we define: Such promotion or election in and of itself, even with the agreement and unanimous consent of all the Cardinals, shall be null, legally invalid, and void. It shall not be possible for such a promotion or election to be deemed valid or to be valid, neither through reception of office, consecration, subsequent administration, or possession, not even through the putative enthronement of a Roman Pontiff himself, together with the veneration and obedience accorded him by all. Such promotion or election shall not through any lapse of time in the foregoing situation be considered even partially legitimate in any way. Each and all of the words, as acts, laws, appointments of those so promoted or elected — and indeed, whatsoever flows there from — shall be lacking in force, and shall grant no stability and legal power to anyone whatsoever. Those so promoted or elected, by that very fact and without the need to make any further declaration, shall be deprived of any dignity, position, honor, title, authority, office, and power. Therefore, it is permitted to no one to impair this page of Our approval, renewal, sanction, statute, wills of repeal, of decrees, or to go contrary to it by a rash daring deed. If anyone, moreover, will have presumed to attempt this, he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul.” -Pope Paul IV (1555-1559), Bull “Cum ex Apostolatus Officio,” February 16, 1559, sec. 9

Pope St. Pius V (1504-1572)

“All the evils of the world are due to lukewarm Catholics.”

Pope Pius IX (1792-1878)

“There will come a great prodigy, which will fill the world with awe. But this prodigy will be preceded by the triumph of a revolution during which the Church will go through ordeals that are beyond description.”
“Liberal Catholics are the worst enemies of the Church.”

Pope St. Pius X (1835-1914)

“Who can fail to see that society is at the present time, more than in any past age, suffering from a terrible and deep-rooted malady which, developing every day and eating into its inmost being, is dragging it to destruction? You understand, Venerable Brethren, what this disease is—apostasy from God… When all this is considered there is good reason to fear lest this great perversity may be as it were a foretaste, and perhaps the beginning of those evils which are reserved for the last days; and that there may be already in the world the ‘Son of Perdition’ [Antichrist] of whom the Apostle speaks.”

“The Church has no right whatsoever to touch the institution and form of the Sacraments.”

“They want them [the Modernists] to be treated with oil, soap, and caresses. But they should be beaten with fists. In a duel, you don’t count or measure the blows, you strike as you can. War is not made with charity: it is a struggle, a duel. If Our Lord were not terrible, He would not have given an example in this too. See how he treated the Philistines, the sowers of error, the wolves in sheep’s clothing, the traders: He scourged them with whips!”

“The true friends of the people are neither the revolutionaries nor the innovators. They are the traditionalists.Letter on the Sillon, August 25, 1910

“Let us not set foot in the opposing camp, because we would thus be giving the enemy a proof of our weakness, which the enemy would try to interpret as a sign of weakness and complicity.” (ecumenism? Abu Dhabi? China?)

The greatest obstacle in the apostolate of the Church is the timidity, or rather the cowardice, of the faithful.”

“Attempting to reconcile our Faith with the modern mentality leads not only to weakening of that Faith, but to its total destruction.”

“In our time more than ever before, the greatest asset of the liars is the cowardice and weakness of good men, and all the vigor of Satan’s reign is due to the easy-going weakness of Catholics.... And this reproach can be leveled at the weak and timid Catholics of all countries.” Beatification of Joan of Arc, December 13, 1898

Henceforth the enemy of the Church is no longer outside the Church; he is now within. Encyclical Esupremi apostolatus, October 4, 1903

“One of the primary obligations assigned by Christ to the office committed to Us of feeding the Lord’s flock is that of guarding with the greatest vigilance the Deposit of Faith delivered to the Saints, rejecting the profane novelties of words, and the gainsaying of knowledge falsely so-called…. We may no longer keep silent [against the Modernists], lest we should seem to fail in our essential duty.” Encyclical Letter Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907, Sec. 1

The partisans of errors are to be sought not only among the Church’s open enemies; but, what is to be most dreaded and deplored, in her very bosom, and are the more mischievous the less they keep in the open. We allude, Venerable Brethren, to many who belong to the Catholic laity, and what is much more sad, to the ranks of the priesthood itself, thoroughly imbued with the poisonous doctrines taught by the enemies of the Church.” Encyclical Letter Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907

Modernists vent all their bitterness and hatred on Catholics who zealously fight the battles of the church. There is no species of insult which they do not heap upon them, but their usual course is to charge them with ignorance or obstinacy. When an adversary rises up against them with an erudition and force that renders them redoubtable, they seek to make a conspiracy of silence around him to nullify the effects of his attack.” Encyclical Letter Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907 (seems to me the man sitting on Chair of peter is very good at this)

“For Catholics, nothing will remove the authority of the Second Council of Nicaea, where it condemns those who dare, after the impious fashion of heretics to deride ecclesiastical traditions, to invent novelties of some kind or to endeavor by malice or craft to overthrow any one of the legitimate traditions of the Catholic Church.” Encyclical Letter Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907


They lay the ax not to the branches and shoots, but to the very root, that is, to the faith and its deepest fibers. And once having struck at this root of immortality, they proceed to diffuse poison through the whole tree so that there is no part of the Catholic truth which they leave untouched, none that they do not strive to corrupt. Further, none is more skillful, none more astute than they, in the employment of a thousand noxious devices, for they play the double part of rationalist and Catholic, and this so craftily that they easily lead the unwary into error; and as audacity is their chief characteristic, there is no conclusion of any kind from which they shrink or which they do not thrust forward with pertinacity and assurance.” Encyclical Letter Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907

Certain Errors of the Orientals, Denzinger # 2147a.[From the letter, “Ex quo,” to the Archbishops Apostolic Delegates in Byzantium, in Greece, in Egypt, in Mesopotamia, in Persia, in Syria, and in the Oriental Indies, December 26, 1910]

“It is well known that to the Church there belongs no right whatsoever to innovate anything touching on the substance of the sacrament.”

The present wickedness of the world is only the beginning of the sorrows which must take place before the end of the world.”

Pope St. Pius X said:All the strength of Satan’s reign is due to the easygoing weakness of Catholics.”

Pope Pius XII (1876-1958)

“We believe that the present hour is a dread phase of the events foretold by Christ. It seems that darkness is about to fall on the world. Humanity is in the grip of a supreme crisis.”

Eugene Cardinal Pacelli (the future Pope Pius XII) in 1931:
“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 Importance of the Eucharist: Part 1 – Our Lady’s Apparitions

AM+DG

CCC on the Eucharist:

No. 1324:The Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’(Lumen Gentium 11) The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministeries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch.”

Part 1:

Many of Our Lady’s apparitions have a Eucharistic component (as messages, healings, or events).

Garabandal  1961-1965

Messages:

  • Our Lady told them the children that they must visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently  and often led them there.
  • Our Lady told Conchita that it was a greater grace to receive Jesus (in Holy Communion) than to see her.
  • In the last apparition on 13th November (note the date is 13th) 1965 Our Lady said:

 “Conchita, why do you not visit my Son more often in the tabernacle? He waits for you there day and night.”

Signs and Miracles: 

  • Our Lady had promised Conchita a miracle to convince the people about the authenticity of the apparitions. It was in the end, it was a Eucharistic miracle.
  • The people often would see the children with their mouths open. They explained that they were receiving communion from St. Michael. The people of course did not see the Communion Host, except for the above occasion.
  • On one occasion, many people were gathered waiting for the promised miracle. Conchita had her mouth open (as usual) to receive Communion, when suddenly a white host materialised on her tongue. This event was filmed and photographed by the people which had gathered there to witness the promised miracle. Footage of it can be seen on videos explaining the story of Garabandal, and just recently in “Garabandal – Only God knows” and “Garabandal – Unstoppable Cascade”.
  • Our Lady promised that at a later date, there would be a great miracle. This would take place at the pines (the pine trees on top of the hill near the village, where many apparitions took place). It would be on the feast of a Eucharistic martyr and Conchita would announce it 8 days beforehand. People in Garabandal at the time, will be healed. It would take place within 12 months of the Warning .

Other Eucharistic influences:

  • The Garabandal visionaries are most active in promoting obedience to traditional Catholic teaching on marriage and on Eucharistic and Marian devotionsthan on future events.
  • The visionaries and the villagers have grown closer to God and lead their lives in strict orthodoxy.

Fatima 1917

Eucharistic influences:

  • The miracle of the sun is usually interpreted as a sign of the Eucharist.
  • During the third apparition, the Angel of Portugal appeared holding a chalice. The children were asked to say an Act of Faith in God. Into the chalice fell drops of blood, suspended above it.
  • The angel then left the chalice and Host suspended, and prostrated himself with the children repeating the prayer to the Trinity, requesting the salvation of souls and reparation through the merits of the Body and Blood of Jesus.
  • The angel took the chalice, gave the Host to Lucy, and the contents of the chalice to Jacinta and Francisco saying  “Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, who is horribly insulted by ungrateful men. Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.”

Knock, Ireland   1879

This apparition on the 21st August was seen by 15 people over a period of a few hours. The age of the people ranged from 6 to 75, and included men and women. The public vision included Our Lady, St. Joseph, St. John the Evangelist (as a Bishop), and a Lamb on the altar, with a Cross behind it; angels hovering around it. No words were spoken

Eucharistic signs and events:

  • The Lamb on the altar and the Cross behind it was the central focus of the apparition. This symbolised the Sacrifice of Calvary taking place at each Mass. This was the brightest part of the apparition.
  • The angels hovering around the altar is a reminder that they are present at every Mass.
  • Our Lady, St Joseph and St. John were in an attitude of prayer, positioned on the side.
  • Archdeacon Kavanagh, the Parish priest, had been saying 100 Masses for the souls in purgatory. The apparition took place on the day of the last Mass.
  • The apparition took place on the gable wall of the parish church which points to the Eucharist.

Miracles

  • Many miraculous cures have taken place at Knock. Marian Carroll was instantly cured of Multiple Sclerosis in 1989 after receiving Holy Communion during Mass, in the Basilica at Knock. She had been placed under Our Lady s statue. She could not walk, had partial use of only one hand, had partial sight in only one eye, her swallowing and speech was affected and she was doubly incontinent. After Communion, she could walk and speak and had full use of her arms. 

Father Gobbi: 1973 – 1997.

Messages to Father Gobbi (an Italian priest) occurred whilst on pilgrimage to Fatima;- while he was praying for priests who had given up their vocations and who were forming themselves into groups of rebellion against the Church’s authority.

Message:

  • Above all the cause of my weeping is the priests: those beloved sons, the apple of my eye, these consecrated sons of mine. Do you see how they no longer love me? How they no longer want me? Do you see how they no longer listen to the words of my Son? How they frequently betray him? How Jesus present in the Eucharist is ignored by many, left alone in the tabernacle; often sacrilegiously offended by them, with wanton negligence?

 

John Bosco (1815 – 1888)

His famous prophetic dream depicts a ship in a storm at sea. Enemy boats were trying to attack and sink the ship. The Captain dressed in white was first wounded then killed, while trying to steer the ship towards two pillars. On one of these stood Our Lady, and on the other a Eucharistic Host.

On top of one pillar is the Immaculate Virgin, with a placard at her feet which says  Mary, Help of Christians ; on the other pillar which is much higher and bigger, stands a Host of great proportions with the words: Salvation of believers.

Akita: 1973-1979

Eucharist influences:

  • In May 1973, she was transferred to a community where the Blessed Sacrament is adored in a spirit of atonement.
  • In June 1973, when Sr. Agnes approached the tabernacle, she saw brilliant rays of light emanating from it. Over the next two days it happened again.
  • On June 28, she said “Beside the light, all around the altar, countless angels were adoring the Holy Eucharist.”
  • Bishop Ho told her to be humble, at peace and to meditate well on the Blessed Sacrament.
  • On June 28, a cross-shaped wound (the stigmata) developed on her left hand, bleeding profusely on Friday, but by Sunday, it had disappeared.

Miracle Healing:
