The statements of the man sitting on the throne of Peter display:

  • blasphemy,
  • heretical and scandalizing statements,
  • an inability or rather, refusal to clarify any dogmatic Truth,as well as
  • his approval of sinful situations, despite what the church teaches.

Some examples are: (From “ https://thewildvoice.org/pope-francis-bad-fruits/)

Of the Holy Spirit ‘Pope Francis’ says:

 ‘The Paraclete (the Holy Spirit) creates all the differences among the Churches, almost as if he were an Apostle of Babel.‘   (MARCH 15, 2013, VATICAN )

Of the Most Holy Trinity – ‘Pope Francis’ jokes:

Inside the Holy Trinity they’re all arguing behind closed doors, but on the outside they give the picture of unity.‘   (MARCH 25, 2017 – CRUX)

Of God the Father– ‘Pope Francis’ says:

God cannot be God without man… Let us also think of the Father, of our Father who cannot be without us, and who is watching us at this moment.‘     (JUNE 7, 2017 – ROME REPORTS/VIDEO)

Of the Blessed Virgin Mary – ‘Pope Francis’ says:

She was silent, but in her heart, how many things she told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived! (DECEMBER 20, 2013 – VATICAN RADIO)  

On Jesus Pope Francis said:

‘Pope Francis’ said that Jesus “had to beg forgiveness of his parents and that the Virgin Mary reproached Christ. (when lost in the temple)

‘Pope Francis’ taught that the miracle of Jesus multiplying the bread and fish was really a miracle of “sharing.

Other statements from this pope:

Lost souls do not go to Hell, saying “there is no punishment, but the annihilation of that soul. All the others will participate in the beatitude of living in the presence of the Father. The souls that are annihilated will not take part in that banquet; with the death of the body their journey is finished.

‘Pope Francis’ said that Mother Earth is the one who ‘gave us life and safeguards us‘.

‘Pope Francis’ approved of contraception in certain circumstances.

Francis issued a stamp featuring Luther and put out a document saying Catholics now recognize Martin Luther as a “witness to the Gospel”. The stamp features Luther and Philip Melanchthon,  – one of the founders of Lutheranism. In the image, Luther holds a Bible, and Melanchthon holds a copy of the Augsburg Confession, the primary confession of faith for the Lutheran church.

Pope cautioned Catholics against “breeding like rabbits” (Jan 19, 2015)

On Pentecost Sunday – June 8, 2014, he hosted Jewish prayers and Koran readings at the Vatican.

St Catherine of Siena said in a letter to Pope Gregory: “Don’t believe in the counsels of the devil!”

She also said: And I, poor, miserable woman, can wait no more; living, I seem to die in my pain, seeing God thus reviled.”

Reading from Book of Truth

When you take away the Truth, or tamper with it, it is no longer the Truth. All that is left is a shell

January 9, 2013 @ 10:45am

My dearly beloved daughter, how familiar I Am, through the tongues of man, every single day, and yet, I Am so far away from them.

Many, instinctively, call out My Name aloud, in moments of expression, without actually realising how they use My Name. Not only Am I not revered; no respect of any kind is shown to Me. My Name is used to curse others, at times of great friction. How this hurts and shocks Me; that I Am used in this way.

Many use My Name in daily conversation, but not in a way, which addresses My Role as the Saviour of the human race.

How I wish that I could call upon those atheists and agnostics, so that they could listen to how they use My Name, in their daily conversations. If it is a habit, then why don’t you use another form of expression? Why do you include Me, if you do not accept Me? Why do you use Me as a form of blasphemy, when you do not believe I Exist?

So many people dismiss Me as not being important in their lives. I Am pushed to one side as if I Am of no consequence.

Many souls, who do believe in Me, do not practise their faith. As such, they fail to prepare their souls. So many do not know when they will be taken from this earth and into the next life and have made a terrible mistake. For, they are not fit to enter My Kingdom.

The day when souls find themselves divided into two groups, the Truth of the future will finally be revealed to them. Woe to the man who has not prepared for this great day and who wasted the time accorded to him on earth.

To the others who have refused to listen to the Truth and who publicly demeaned and rejected Me, their terror will be impossible to describe. There will be weeping, hysteria and shock witnessed on that day, as these souls see that the path they chose led them only into the fires of the abyss.

This is the time of spiritual renewal for souls who have been blessed with the Gift to see how the prophecies of old are now taking place in the world as foretold.

I look at the world and I see terrible confusion, as people are being sucked into lies about how the world was created – these lies, which are designed to turn people away from the Truth.

I see good people being told to reject their understanding of My Teachings and to throw them aside in favour of accepting Sin. Then they are encouraged to applaud sin until they convince themselves that I, Jesus Christ, will turn a blind eye.

The Truth of My Teachings lies at the very kernel of Christianity. When you take away the Truth, or tamper with it, it is no longer the Truth. All that is left is a shell.

It is time to discern whether or not you are prepared to allow yourselves to be deceived by modern new age spiritualism, or to stand firm and defend the Holy Word of God. It may not seem to matter to you now, but when the day comes, when I come to Judge, only the Truth will be acceptable in My Kingdom.

When you accept lies, you are not being honest. You are not being truthful. Therefore, you will not receive Graces.  You will be like an empty vessel, which sails in the seas, boasting of a cargo, which exists only in your minds. It will be of no use to anyone, this false sense of security. It will not give you access to the keys of My New Paradise.

Pray every day, as if tomorrow is your last day, because you do not know the time of My Second Coming. It will happen unexpectedly. When that day dawns, there will be little time to turn back.  You will either accept Me, and My Promise to bring you into My Kingdom, or you will be sent to the place from which there is no return.

Your Jesus

Readings from the Book of Truth

They will be asked to pledge their allegiance, through a new oath, to remain faithful to the Church

August 18, 2013 @ 5:45pm

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.

Your Jesus

Virgin Mary: The Arrogance and Pride of Humanity is Insulting to the Presence of God.

13 February 2013 @ 8:10pm

My Holy Mantle covers all those of you who call on me, your Heavenly Mother, during these times of Chastisement. As the Anger of my Eternal Father increases, you, my dear children, must pray hard to dilute the suffering, which will surge, like a flood, over the earth.

You must keep focused on what my Son tells you and remain united in prayer, so that sin can be forgiven. The hedonistic cloud, which hangs over the western part of the world, which has shunned my Son, thickens every day.

The arrogance and pride of humanity is insulting to the Presence of God. Their empty souls are like empty vessels, and they are filled with worthless riches, which are created by the hand of man. No room do they have in their greedy hearts for True Love, the Love of God.Without the Love of God, they are unable to love anyone, other than themselves. This means that humanity suffers, more than they should, because love is not shared.

If you only care for yourself, you cannot give comfort, or ease the suffering of those who are reliant on others.

Wake up, children. Only by opening your hearts to the Truth will you be able to win over the Mercy of my beloved Son.

Your beloved Mother

FATIMA AND OUR LADY OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

A.M.D.G

A Day With Our Lady of Fatima, 13th May 2017

PART 2 of a series of Fatima Centenary talks in 2017

For part 1 of this series see post dated 13th May, 2017. (On Home page, click “Archives” button and scroll down to May, 2017)    or press this link:  https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/2017/05/13/fatimas-message-more-relevant-than-ever-heavens-request-for-reparation/

FATIMA AND OUR LADY OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT:

Sign of hope and alert to danger

Today, the 13th of May, is a date that resonates with heavenly significance; it’s a date of singular importance in the recent history and future of the world.

One hundred years ago today, only seventeen years into the twentieth century, a terrible war was raging in Europe and a world-changing revolution was brewing in Russia…

And, in a remote little Portuguese hamlet, events of a spiritual kind were beginning to unfold. These events would culminate in a pre-announced Miracle to be witnessed by seventy thousand people: a public miracle unprecedented since Biblical times.

1.The sun plunged towards the earth and performed astonishing, almost-unbelievable gymnastics in the sky for fifteen long minutes, flooding the area of Fatima and 30 kilometres radius with a spectacular light show.

Photos still exist to this day of this phenomenal occasion.

So… a century ago, this very day, it all began.

But why the 13th of May? Why did Heaven reach down to three little shepherd children on this particular date?

Well, May, of course, has always been traditionally the special month for honouring the Mother of Christ. And while Jesus had selected twelve close followers to become the apostles of His newly-formed Church, there was always a 13th disciple quietly present in the background: His Blessed Mother Mary. She was that 13th disciple who had loved Him long before she’d even bore Him in Her womb.

There is a foreshadowing of Fatima, too, in the Old Testament and the 13th day of the month was central to that story as well. It features another Jewish maiden 2,400 years ago called Esther. When the ruling Persians of that time decreed that the Jewish race would be exterminated on the 13th of the month, Esther as Queen bravely interceded with the King to save God’s people.  The success of her intercession is still celebrated today among Jews everywhere with the holiday of Purim. And it is believed that the mysterious star which features on the gown of Our Lady of Fatima alludes to the biblical tale of Esther as the name “Esther” means literally “star”. There are so many parallels that the Fathers of the Church have conceded that Esther prefigures the role of Mary, Queen of Heaven, in our own times. We will come back to this a little later on.

Apart from all these speculative aspects about May 13ththis day used to be celebrated as the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Eucharist… or, as it was known back in 1917, the Feast of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament. See, the Blessed Sacrament is an intrinsic part of the message of Fatima:

It would appear that the Divine but hidden presence of Christ our God in the Tabernacles of our churches and in Holy Communion was already being disregarded, neglected and abused by careless or deliberate sacrilege a century ago.

In the year before Our Lady’s appearance at Fatima, the three shepherd children Lucy, Jacinta and Francisco, age six, eight and ten, were being prepared for her visit by a special angelic emissary. The angel of peace, the Guardian of Portugal, later identified as St Michael, was schooling them in perfect postures of prayer, kneeling with the forehead touching the ground as they prayed: “Jesus I adore you in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.”

On his second visit the Angel gave Holy Communion to Lucy and the Precious Blood from a Chalice to Jacinta and Francisco“Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ,” he said, “horribly outraged by ungrateful men!”  He instructed them about the importance of making sacrifices and reparation for sins so as to console God.

And he taught them two prayers addressed to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

The first was to be repeated three times: “Oh my God, I believe in You, I adore You, I trust in You and I love You. I beg pardon for all those who do not believe, who do not adore, who do not trust and do not love You.

The second prayer is more telling in its implications. Kneeling prostrate before the consecrated Host and the Chalice which remained suspended in mid-air, the Angel showed them to pray:

“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He is offended. By the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I ask of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

Outrages, sacrileges, indifference: these three offenses directly target God Himself, and they are not peculiar to one hundred years ago.

Let’s look at these three specific offenses.

The first, Indifference:

Numerous visions, messages and locutions from Jesus and Mary reported in our own times often make reference to “indifference”. A prayer dictated to a modern seer includes the plea, “Forgive us for the sin of indifference.” Another similarly prescribed prayer from heaven says, “Show mercy and forgiveness for those souls who hurt Jesus with their indifference.”

In recently-published Fatima booklet called Jacinta’s Tears the author wrote, “Consider if you went to a lot of trouble to get a magnificent present for someone, putting your whole heart into it and going to great length to show your love for that person. If he or she took the gift as if it were nothing and didn’t even bother to thank you, I think you would feel very saddened and offended (….)  By sending His Angel at Fatima God is telling us a little bit of how He feels, offended by our indifferences” – being taken for granted, ignored in many instances.

In the famous Church-approved visions of the Sacred Heart to St Margaret Mary over three hundred years ago, Jesus told her that He is more offended by the lukewarm-ness of His friends than by the outrages of His enemies.  Aren’t we the same – more susceptible to being hurt by those we love than by those who hate us? And that’s simply because, with those we love, we have opened our hearts to them. So… far worse, then, than the general indifference of the world is what Jesus experiences from Catholics who are indifferent to His Presence in the “Divine Sacrament of Love”.

At Fatima, the Mother of Jesus taught the children a short prayer of adoration: “Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the altar!”

The second offense requiring reparation is Outrages:

Historically, since Fatima, the outrages against Christ and His Body the Church have multiplied and intensified. There have been more martyrs in the last 100 years than in the first three centuries of persecution under the Roman Empire. From 1917 onwards, wherever Marxist revolution has takencontrol, the atrocities are incalculable – Russia, Spain, Eastern Europe, China, South America, Africa – endless places worldwide. And without fail, the Church has always become the avowed “enemy of the state”.  There was an incident in the Spanish Civil War of 1936 where a rebel solider coldly and deliberately fired a bullet through an exposed consecrated Host in a Church.

Today, the outrages are less dramatic perhaps, but they surface on all sides as the world distances itself more and more from religion and belief in God, to take up the banner of anti-Christian Marxist principles. Several weeks ago, on International Women’s Day, radical feminists attempted to set fire to the Cathedral of Buenos Aires. In our own liberal culture we hear of dubious works of “art” publicly displayed which boldly blaspheme God and the Virgin Mary. The name of Jesus Christ, used as a curse, has become part of our social vocabulary, in everyday life and in the cinema and theatre.

A movie just released in Atlanta, Georgia, portrays our Blessed Lady as a lesbian and ridicules her Virgin Birth. Gone are any boundaries, any sensitivity for what Christians hold holy; nothing any longer is sacred, all in the name of freedom of expression.

In France, 1843, a Carmellite sister, Sister Marie of Saint-Pierre (or St Peter) was given messages from Our Lord which enjoy the full approval of the Church. Marianologists say that these revelations, along with those of La Salette in 1846, form the foundation to the Fatima visitations of 1917.

Jesus told Sister Marie de St Peter, “My Name is blasphemed everywhere!” He made her understand that this frightful sin, more than any other, grievously wounds His Heart. With blasphemy the sinner curses Him to His Face, He said, attacking Him openly. “The earth is covered in crimes,” He went on, “The Holy name of God is blasphemed and the Holy Day of the Lord is profaned. At no time have these crimes reached such a pitch!”

Sister Marie de St Pierre begged Jesus to provide some confirmation of her revelations, and three years later her prayer was answered. Our Lady appeared at La Salette in France where she was seen weeping and distraught. Her tears, she said, were for “the utter contempt for God’s commandments, particularly the terrible crime of blasphemy and the profaning of the Lord’s Day. These two sins,” she explained, “break the second and third commandments.”

Jesus told Sister Marie de Saint-Peter, “The Jews crucified me on Friday, but Christians crucify me on Sunday.”

These words were spoken to a more God-fearing age 170 years ago, but aren’t they still applicable today – probably even more-so?  In the last thirty years in (… country named) Sunday trading, which we’ve all been guilty of enjoying, has contributed to the desecration of Sunday. And now, the authorities are looking at removing the shopping ban on Easter Sunday, the holiest of Sundays.

We know from various visionary sources that the taking of unborn life, the violation of the sanctuary of the womb, is an outrage in God’s eyes which invokes His justice – especially when the legalization of abortion has come from governments of nations that once were Christian. From the moment abortion was made lawful in the 1970s images of Our Lady worldwide began to weep tears of blood. Now, forty years and millions of abortions later, this so-called service has become accepted, institutionalized, even considered a human right. Our Lady spoke of the “errors of Russia”. Abortion is one of these errors, legalized in Russia in 1920.

At Fatima our Blessed Mother asked for the five First Saturdays to be kept as days of reparation for FIVE particular offenses and outrages. These are

(1) the mocking of her Perpetual Virginity;

(2) insults to her Divine Maternity;

(3) scorning her Immaculate Conception;

(4) the disrespect shown to her images and statues,

(5) the teaching of children by Christians that she, the pure vessel created by God to bring His Son into the world, was a sinner like everyone else.

Moving on to the third area of offense highlighted at Fatima, Sacrileges:  

Seven years ago today our previous Holy Father Pope Benedict gave a papal address to 500,000 pilgrims at Fatima which pointed out an uncomfortable fact: “Today,” he said, “we see in the most horrifying way, that the greatest persecution against the Church does not come from its enemies outside, but from the sins within; and that the Church has therefore a great need to re-learn penance. . .”

In the United States, from surveys conducted within the Church, Catholic journalist Michael Voris has brought to light some disturbing facts, and I quote: “One of the most central beliefs of the Catholic Church, the Real Presence that is, Jesus Christ present, really, truly, and substantially Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity under the appearance of bread and wine is believed by only half of all Catholics. Sixty per cent of American Catholics have succumbed to the culture of death and believe the Church is wrong on abortion. Over half of them believe individuals have the final say as to whether sex outside marriage is okay, not the Church. This is the Church established by the Son of God who will judge us on our deeds.”

This survey could well reflect a similar picture in most western countries, including our own, where a more relaxed, liberal spirit has come to exist.

Those who have seen the changes in the Church over the last few decades would agree that lack of respect and reverence is prevalent among us; this is aligned to the gradual erosion of devotion to the Real Presence; and a growing belief that sin is no longer a reality, just a human weakness that doesn’t really call for repentance or confession.  I was recently talking to an elderly woman, a Catholic convert of thirty years, who told me she has never once been to Confession – she didn’t see any need! This is someone who, sadly, has never been instructed sufficiently in the faith.  According to the American survey, a large percentage of the faithful are living in sinful situations and receiving Holy Communion; even seeing it as their “right”.

In a recent message to a holy soul in Argentina, the Blessed Virgin Mary is reported saying, “Woe to those who receive My Son improperly without repentance! They choose their eternal condemnation! Woe to those who commit sacrileges! Woe to those who mock the divine! They will know the pains of hell.” Strong words – but Our Lady is, after all, a loving mother who cares about our welfare and is firm in teaching the Christian essentials.

There’s another kind of sacrilege we need to be aware of, too. In our increasingly de-Christianized world, Black Masses are on the upsurge. Despite the deterrent of locked Tabernacles in our churches nowadays, the stealing of consecrated Hosts poses no problem to Satanists. With the trend of Communion in the hand more common in the last fifty years, we have actually made it easier for them to acquire Hosts to desecrate. An ex-Satanist high priest, now a fervent Catholic convert, revealed to us last year during his address here that (…city named) boasts the greatest number of satanic covens of all our (...country named) cities.

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

In the closing vision of Fatima, 13th October 1917, after the Miracle of the Sun, the Virgin Mary came dressed in the religious habit of the Carmelites. This is an interesting final note. Apart from the fact that the visionary Lucy would eventually join the order of Mt Carmel, this could have established a link to a new series of apparitions that may well be a continuation of Fatima.

Is it just coincidence that in 1961, twelve months after the sealed envelope of Fatima’s Third Secret was opened and its contents kept secret, the Blessed Mother began appearing in earnest as Our Lady of Mt Carmel at another remote Catholic village, further north of Fatima in Spain? The amazing events at Garabandal lasted four long years and are still under investigation by the Church.

However, two urgent and major messages emerged from Garabandal.

The first spoke of the prime necessities of Catholic life, already mentioned at Fatima: “We must make many sacrifices… perform much penance… and …visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently…” The second message, given in 1965, said, Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts…”

The Blessed Sacrament!Once again the focus! And this was emphasized by what became known as “the Little Miracle of Garabandal”. As at Fatima, the miracle was pre-announced, in this case fifteen days beforehand, and it occurred on the night of the patronal feast of the village.

While young visionary Conchita was being given invisible Holy Communion by an Angel, the Sacred Host became visible on her tongue. This event was witnessed by many onlookers and was captured on film.

Father Anthony Mary Prendergast of the Community of St John here in (…city named) published a wonderful little booklet two years ago on the Holy Eucharist. I’m lifting from there some inspirational quotes from four of the greatest saints in the Church’s history:

St John Chrysostom says, “When the Mass is celebrated, the sanctuary is filled with countless angels, including the Guardian Angel of each person present, all reverently worshipping their Lord and God.”

In the revelations of St Bridget, we read: “One day when I was assisting at the Holy Sacrifice, I saw an immense number of Holy Angels descend and gather around the altar, contemplating the priest. They sang heavenly canticles that ravished my heart. Heaven itself seemed to be contemplating the great sacrifice. And yet we poor, blind and miserable creatures assist at Mass with so little love, relish and respect! Oh, if God would open our eyes, what wonders should we not see?”

And St John Vianney, Cure of Ars: “All the good works in the world are not equal to the Holy sacrifice of the Mass because they are works of men, while the Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in comparison, for it is but the sacrifice of men to God; but the Mass is the sacrifice of God for men.”

The favourite saint of many Catholics, the priest who bore the wounds of Christ for fifty years, Padre Pio, once wrote: “Every Mass heard with devotion produces in our souls marvelous effects, abundant spiritual and material graces which we, ourselves, do not know. It is easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”

And the great Eucharistic saint, St Julian Eymard was famous for these words: “The Eucharist is not only the life of individual Christians; it is also the life of nations. A century advances or regresses to the extent to which the Most Holy Sacrament is adored.”

***********************

We live in times of huge unrest, of extremes, of momentous change, chaotic confusion and uncertainty: a faithless and perverse generation. Saint John Paul the Second at a Bishops gathering in France, in 1980, said that mankind faces a “mega-temptation”; that is, the temptation to think that man can save himself through science and technology; therefore Christ is to become obsolete. 

It was on the doorstep of this modern age that Mary, like a prophet of old, made her entrance at Fatima. Supposedly a new and more enlightened age, scientifically advanced, yet in the last hundred years since Fatima there have been more wars and casualties than in the entire known history of humanity. These are dangerous times to live; dangerous and deceptive times if you are a believer.

Fatima was a pre-warning for us, echoing the Old Testament times when the Jews turned their back on God and He sent prophets to awaken them to the consequences. And this returns us to the biblical narrative of Esther which I mentioned earlier. Queen Esther lived in Persia (modern day Iran) and when the entire population of the Jewish people were threatened with extermination on the 13th day of the month, she interceded with the King to save them.

Well, barely weeks after the Fatima apparitions ended in 1917, Holy Mother Russia (as she was called then) was seized by Marxist Communists. Millions upon millions of God’s people were wantonly slaughtered, clergy and consecrated religious humiliated and killed, churches closed.

During the Spanish Civil War which followed suit in 1936, the Red Terror made martyrs of over four thousand diocesan priests and seminarians, 2,500 monks, friars and nuns. And so the pattern has been repeated throughout the twentieth century and now into the 21st Century. Wherever Communist and anti-Christian ideology has arisen, genocide has followed.

The Third Secret of Fatima released at the turn of this century concerns a vision of a murdered bishop in white, along with the bodies of cardinals, bishops and laymen in a city of ruins with armed soldiers. It does suggest there’s still more to come yet, a global form of Marxist Communism which, unrecognized, could be stealthily gaining foothold around us. Militant atheism in all its varied guises, institutionalized and politicized, remains humanity’s gravest enemy, diametrically opposed to true faith and religion.

At Fatima we were forewarned by the Mother of Salvation, If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, stirring up revolutions, and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer; several nations will be annihilated.”

At present, persecution of Christians is on the rise. According to the Turin-based Centre for Studies, CENSUR, Christians are the most targeted religious group in the world. In the fiscal year of 2016 just gone, over ninety thousand Christians were murdered for their faith and 500 to 600 million were otherwise persecuted in such ways as imprisonment, abductions, economic restrictions, destruction of property and loss of personal rights.

These statistics surprise those of us who live relatively peaceful and comfortable lives in (…country named) because the media seldom reports on this issue. An Iraqi priest now living in (…city), Father (…  name) , has told us of hundreds of thousands of Chaldean Catholics murdered by Islamic Fundamentalists in Iraq and Syria. The Christian population of his homeland has been decimated from two million to less than 200,000 today.

I mention these facts and figures not to frighten anyone but just to make us aware of how serious the situation is one hundred years after Fatima.

There can be no hiding from the prophecy delivered from heaven that some nations (according to the repeated words of Our Lady to Sister Lucy) could disappear from the face of the earthsomething quite conceivable in the present international climate. Like Queen Esther, however, our Blessed Mother is interceding for us and with our co-operation, will succeed in bringing peace to our troubled world. We must hold fast to that hope, increasing our prayers and efforts, our sacrifices and penance, which can help mitigate the severity of events.

To combat all the evils of today Mother Mary has given us three weapons: number one, the daily Rosaryand at Fatima Lucy was told that  God has invested this ancient prayer with extra power for spiritual warfare when the devil appears to be gaining the upper hand; number two, the Five First Saturday Communions of Reparation; and three, the consecration of Russia named specificallywhich we are still awaiting and praying for – and personal consecration and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Ultimately, we are assured that Mary’s Immaculate Heart WILL triumph. That triumph, we must remember, begins in individual hearts, and when people give up their Saturday, like all of you today, to come and honour the Blessed Mother, the first fruits of that triumph are already evident. It isn’t a numbers game. It never has been. The few, the devoted, can make a vast difference!

On this special day, which a hundred years ago was the feast of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, please pray in the words of Pope St Pius X, “O Virgin Mary, Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, inspire in all Christians a deep devotion for the Most Blessed Sacrament so that they may become worthy to receive Him daily”.

Only a False Prophet could speak such words (Part 1)

A+M+D+G

God has warned us in His Holy Scriptures:

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth that which is evil. For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Lk 6:45).

“Be not deceived, God is not mocked” (Gal 6:7).

“And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God” (Apoc 13:6)…

For fools speak folly, and their minds plot iniquity: to practice ungodliness,
to utter error concerning the Lord, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink.7 The villainies of villains are evil; they devise wicked devices to ruin the poor with lying words, even when the plea of the needy is right
”.( Isaiah 32:6-7)

“And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.” (Rev.13:11)

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”  (Matthew 7:15)

What is a false prophet?

A prophet is one who speaks to us God’s Word as it is given. A false prophet professes to speak the Word of God but does not do so. A “false” prophet professes to speak God’s word – but it is false: twisted, misquoted; falsities inserted, etc.

A false prophet speaks true words of God at times, but when it suits him, he speaks words that are not from God, but implies, or says that they are. He is two-faced. He says what people want to hear. He is a “Janus” or Janus-faced.

Jesus described false prophets as “wolves in sheep’s clothing”. Revelation describes the false prophet as having 2 horns like a lamb. (See Rev. 13:11 above) The Mitre the pope wears can signify the “2 horns”.

Jesus tells us we will know them by their fruits. Some of them are listed below:

The words of the False Prophet belie his true identity:

Other public acts of blasphemy against God or the Saints include his

 

 

  • 2016 : “First, we have Francis accusing John the Baptist of “doubt, or lack of faith, in Matthew 11: Although John was great, strong, secure in his vocation, “he still had dark moments,” he had his doubts,” said Francis. He claims John began to doubt in prison, even though he had baptized Jesus, “because he was a Saviour that was not as he had imagined him.” (http://www.onepeterfive.com/papal-eisegesis-time-st-john-baptists-doubt/ 

 

 

  • Bergoglio claims Judas was repentant and victimized.

Bergoglio earlier this week  (April 2016) delivered a sermon at Casa Santa Marta in which he called Judas Iscariot a poor, repentant man, victimized and driven to suicide by unmerciful lovers of the law”. The writer comments: “This stunning attempt to rehabilitate Judas Iscariot, the greatest, most wicked traitor in history and despairing self-murderer, is beyond unprecedented.  It reeks of supernatural evil.” See: (http://www.barnhardt.biz/2016/04/16/gloves-off-paragraph-303-god-wills-mortal-sin-and-bergoglios-sinister-affinity-for-judas-iscariot/  )

 

  • Only a false prophet would contradict the Catholic Church teaching on “hell”: On November 6, 2016, in a midday address after the Angelus in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis suggested that everyone goes to heaven. He said: “The ‘children of heaven and resurrection’ are not a privileged few, but they are all men and all women, because the salvation brought by Jesus is for everyone.”

In an interview published in the La Stampa on December 31, 2013, he said: “Never fear the final judgment, because Christ will always be at our side.”

Likewise, in Amoris Laetitia (297), Pope Francis wrote: No one can be condemned forever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!” See: https://veritas-vincit-international.org/2017/02/11/pope-francis-everyone-goes-to-heaven/

  • A true pope would not make fun of any religious orders, let alone those who are attracting many vocations. or use the phrase “superstar” or “postmistress” in reference to the Blessed Virgin.

In referring to religious orders, he said that he worries because  “The Spirit does not follow the logic of human success.” He denounced them as “Pelagians,” who want a return to asceticism and penance, “soldiers who seem ready to do anything for the defense of faith and morality, and then some scandal emerges involving the founder [male or female].”

 

  • Proselytism is solemn nonsense. We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us.

A true Pope would commend to us Jesus’ words“Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). Pope Paul VI affirmed in his letter On Evangelization in the Modern World: “We wish to confirm once more that the task of evangelizing all people constitutes the essential mission of the Church” (14). Evangelization is at the very heart of what it means to be followers of the Lord.

  • The false prophet said:I believe in God, not in a Catholic god”.

 

  • He says: “:We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods.” And also says: “the most urgent problem that the Church is facing is youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old. “

 

  • If the Christian is a restorationist, a legalist, if he wants everything clear and safe, then he will find nothing. Compare this with Pope Benedict XVI: “Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church, is often labeled today as a fundamentalism. … Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and ‘swept along by every wind of teaching,’ looks like the only attitude acceptable to today’s standards.”

See: http://www.holychoices.org/data/Pope-Frances-False-Prophet.html

 

 

  • For example, when the Bishop of Rome preached at the Domus Santae Martae in May 2013, he said in a homily:  “We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’  But do good: we will meet one another there.”  By “there,” he meant heaven.  In other words, atheists can go to heaven by doing good works. This is clearly error. See: http://www.traditionalcatholicpriest.com/2016/10/14/why-pope-francis-is-a-false-prophet/

Prophecies (from the Book of Truth) fulfilled – Part 5

  1. Jumble of Nonsense

Prophecy:

When you are faced with lies, they will come tumbling out of the mouths of deceivers in a confused jumble of nonsense. The lies, which have already commenced, are couched in humble-like language, but disguise the greatest lies against the True doctrine of the Church. Know them for what they are – sent to cajole you into committing sin.

When my son is deemed to be a sinner, know that this is the greatest blasphemy, for it is impossible.

I sent My Son, as a man in the flesh and like all of you, with one exception. He was born without sin, and therefore, was incapable of it. Anyone who uses the truth and then twists it, in order to introduce a new meaning into the Crucifixion of My beloved Son, is a liar. He does not come from Me and is an enemy of My Son.

Watch now, My little children, as the beast and the demons he has sent to take you away from Me, roam amongst you. You must be strong. You must always know that My Son gave you the Truth when He walked the Earth and when He died for your sins.

He sacrificed his body to redeem you, but he never became a sinner, for he is not one of you.” 

(God the Father, 23 June, 2013)

Prophecy fulfilled:

  • THIS IS WHAT POPE FRANCIS SAID regarding Confession:

“What is reconciliation? … True reconciliation means that God in Christ took on our sins and He became the sinner for us…

When we go to Confession… It isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us.   No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say:

‘This is your sin, and i will sin again’. stations3-12

And Jesus likes that,

Because it was his mission: to become the sinner for us, to liberate us.”

“Christ became sin for me! And my sins are there in his body, in his soul! This – (says the Pope) – it’s crazy, but it’s beautiful, it’s true! This is the scandal of the Cross! ” 

 See full text at  Vatican site: Pope Francis homily on Saturday, June 15, 2013: at Daily Mass

  • THIS IS WHAT POPE FRANCIS SAID regarding Our Lady:

Pope Francis on Vatican Radio, Dec. 20, 2013; L’Osservatore Romano Report on Francis’ Homily (Italian)

“The Gospel does not tell us anything: if she spoke a word or not… She was silent, but in her heart, how many things told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived!’”

This is not only a “jumble of nonsense” but blasphemy and impiety. This shows what pf believes about our Blessed mother. Pf doesn’t believe she is the Immaculate Conception – he believes she is just a creature like all of us – with faults, and resentments. With a desire for worldly acclaim for her Son (“throne of David…’). He implies that she was angry with God and in her heart was stored all these things. He implies that she thought that Jesus was to be a worldly king with power and status.

  • THIS IS WHAT POPE FRANCIS SAID regarding atheists going to heaven:

In an article on May 21, 2013 Can Atheists go to Heaven Paolo Reyes stated that

Pope Francis created a global firestorm of religious debate as a result of a homily that talked about atheists.  In that controversial homily, the pope essentially emphasized that what matters more is not so much our religious affiliation, but to ‘do good’:

The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! “Father, even the atheists?”Even the atheists. Everyone!…we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path to peace. If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter: we need that so much. We must meet one another doing good. “But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: we will meet one another there.”

What nonsense.!! Why would an atheist, who doesn’t believe in God, or an eternal life, want to go heaven?

“…this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path to peace

A path to peace??? Surely our first priority is the path to eternal life with God, our Father in heaven? Francis was trying to explain how atheists get to heaven – but he really only meant peace???

What about the ten commandments that God gave us – this is how we have eternal peace and love and joy with God in heaven!

More jumbled nonsense:

  • Francis Preaching at the morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta

 Obeying “all the commandments, all of them… Yes, it’s true, but this paralyzes you too”; “doesn’t allow you to go forward”  Vatican Radio (27 Jan 2017)and also Biblical False prophet

“…Confined souls… This is faintheartedness: this is the sin against memory, courage, patience, and hope. May the Lord make us grow in memory, make us grow in hope, give us courage and patience each and free us from that which is faintheartedness, being afraid of everything…  Confined souls in order to save ourselves. And Jesus says: ‘He who wills to save his life will lose it.” (latter is more ‘twisting of the truth’ – see prophecies fulfilled – Part 3  )

http://en.radiovaticana.va/news/2017/01/27/pope_fear_of_everything,_the_sin_that_paralyzes_christians/128864

Obeying all the Commandments is precisely what God commands of us, but commandmentsFrancis says otherwise. Obeying the commands doesn’t allow you to go forward.” How sad that so few people even notice such nonsense. From:

More coverage of this issue by LifeSiteNews.com on – February 1, 2017:

In another in a long stream of apparent attacks on his critics, Pope Francis gave a homily last week accusing Christians who avoid taking risks out of concern for the Ten Commandments as suffering from “cowardliness,” warning that such people become paralyzed” and unable to “go forward.”

“‘Not taking risks, please, no… prudence

.Obeying all the commandments, all of them…,’”
“Yes, it’s true, but this paralyzes you …

Thought for the Day – Monday 28th December

The thought for the day is from Donna, who opens the Bible randomly each day for a point to reflect upon.

Monday 28th December, 2015

The Bible used is the CTS New Catholic Bible 2007.

St. James says in chapter 2:

My brethren, do not hold the faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Lord of glory, with partiality. (1)…

Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into courts?
Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called? (6-7)
And
“You believe that there is ONE GOD. You do well.
Even the DEMONS believe and tremble!
But do you WANT to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?” (19-20)

Comment – There is a lot of food for thought here:

  • Bishop Julian Porteous of Hobart, Tasmania (Australia) is being taken to court for handing out a booklet entitled “Don’t mess with Marriage” which was the result of the Aust. Bishops’ Conference outlining what the Catholic church believes about marriage.
  • It was deemed to be discriminatory according to a local Tasmanian law.
  • The name of “Christ” (Christian/s) by which we are called.
  • There is One Godeven the demons believe this. Those who are not Christian do not believe in the same god as our God. Their god is completely different to the Christian God – the one True Trinitarian God.
  • Faith without good works is dead – A declaration of faith  is not enough according to the Bible (as some Christians believe). Good works alone are not enough either! True faith is seen through the good works.
