Bible Reading:

1. Psalm 108:

A song; a psalm of David. 2 My heart is steadfast, God; my heart is steadfast.Let me sing and chant praise.

3 Awake, lyre and harp! I will wake the dawn. 4 I will praise you among the peoples, LORD; I will chant your praise among the nations.

5 For your mercy is greater than the heavens; your faithfulness, to the skies. 6 Appear on high over the heavens, God;your glory above all the earth.

7 Help with your right hand and answer us that your loved ones may escape.

8 God speaks in his holiness:“I will exult, I will apportion Shechem;

the valley of Succoth I will measure out. 9 Gilead is mine, mine is Manasseh;

Ephraim is the helmet for my head, Judah, my scepter.10Moab is my washbowl;

 upon Edom I cast my sandal; I will shout in triumph over Philistia.”

11. Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me into Edom?

12. Was it not you who rejected us, God? Do you no longer march with our armies?

13. Give us aid against the foe; worthless is human help.

14 We will triumph with the help of God, who will trample down our foes.

Readings from the Book of Truth

2. When the freedom to speak is taken away, the Truth is hidden

November 30, 2012 @ 3:55pm

My dearly beloved daughter, the prophecies, when the freedom of nations, which allows them to speak without shackles ends, are about to be revealed.

In My Message to you on 01 January 2011, I told you that the voice of the people through the media would be hidden from mankind and taken away.

When the free voice of the media is silenced then you know that you are living in a dictatorship.

Many changes are being forced upon nations through the control of the media. When the freedom to speak is taken away, the Truth is hidden. Then nation after nation will be fed with lies dictated by pagans.

The Book of Truth is being given to the world so that humanity can feel the Love of God and be guided towards the Truth so that they will find freedom.

Freedom to make your own choice is being taken away by the elite group. You are like lambs being led to the slaughter and many of you will be led astray and will become blind to the Truth.

Freedom is a Gift given to every man by God Who respects the free will of His children.

Through your free will you will make many choices: some of these choices are frowned upon by My Father, yet, He never interferes with your free will for He cannot nor will He ever take this away from you.

Slaves of Satan will always attack your free will. They do this by tempting nations to take away the freedom of those over whom they rule. They do this for many reasons.

One reason is to make slaves of you for their own selfish gain. The second is to control the growth of their populations. The third reason is to wipe out all traces of God.

Since My Death on the Cross, this plan has been witnessed in many countries. Yet the western world managed to remain as free from dictatorship as possible. This will now all change.

Each nation will be taken over by another. They will fight amongst each other for power. Many nations will begin to introduce laws, which amount to communism.

Then there will come a time when the Red Dragon and the Bear will control all, but many people will not realise this because much of this dictatorship will be hidden from public eyes.

Know this. When attempts to wipe out the Name of God take root, and you become slaves to lies, then the Hand of My Father will strike.

One third of the world will be wiped out and Divine Intervention will continue until the last day.

To mitigate the evil laws, which will be introduced into your countries, where the Truth will be hidden from you, you must recite this Crusade Prayer (87) to protect nations from evil.

Crusade Prayer (87) Protect our Nation from Evil

O Father, on behalf of Your Son save us from communism.
Save us from dictatorship.
Protect our nation against paganism.
Save our children from harm.
Help us to see the Light of God.
Open our hearts to the Teachings of Your Son.
Help all Churches to remain true to the Word of God.
We beg you to keep our nations safe from persecution.
Dearest Lord, look upon us with Mercy no matter how we offend You.
Jesus, Son of Man, cover us with Your Precious Blood.
Save us from the snares of the evil one.
We implore you, dear God, to intervene and stop evil from engulfing the world at this time. Amen.

Pray, pray, pray for the Heart of My Father is broken at the speed in which sinful laws are being brought before every nation on earth at this time on earth.
Hope, pray and trust in Me so that this devastation can be diluted.

Pray that as many of God’s children as possible will keep their eyes open at all times and that they remain loyal to the Truth of the My Teachings.

Your Jesus

3. The Catholic Church is now about to enter the worst persecution in its history

April 13, 2013 @ 11:50pm

My dearly beloved daughter, I wish to give encouragement to all of you who believe in Me and My Messages contained within this Book – The Book of Truth.

When man follows Me and offers himself to Me, he must emulate all of My Traits. This means that he must love all in My Name and treat every man as he would expect to be treated himself. However, when you truly abandon yourself into My Care, you will suffer for this. You will be treated with cruelty and every attempt will be made to pour scorn upon you.

I say this to all of God’s children and to Christians, in particular, for your load is the heaviest. I call out to all of those in the world who believe in Me, irrespective as to whether or not they believe that I speak to them through these Messages.

Christians will always be targeted by those who want to change God’s Laws to fit into their sinful pursuit of pleasure and selfish desires. The Catholic Church is now about to enter the worst persecution in its history and it will be turned upside down and inside out. The attack has been planned for decades and carefully constructed. How the saints in Heaven weep at the catastrophic events which will now unfold at a speed which will shock even those who do not believe in these Messages.

Confusion will result, as many sacred servants will become powerless as everything they held dear will be questioned and then overturned. They will be challenged and bullied in My Name from within their own ranks.

To those of you who are loyal to My Church on earth, I urge you to be vigilant and to uphold My Teachings if you wish to stay true to Me.  You must never accept anything other than the Truth you have been taught. Soon you will feel very alone and My poor sacred servants will become distressed for their loyalty to Me and to the Church laid down by Peter will be pulled from under them.

To all those who are traditional loyal Christians, you must stay firm and you must not accept any attempt to encourage you to abandon your faith.   You will be pushed to one side and forced to agree to educate your children in a false doctrine, not of God.

These events will now commence and I warn you of these in order to guide you. Anyone who accuses Me, through this Mission, of encouraging souls to desert My Church on earth does not understand My Instructions. I Am simply asking you to remain loyal to My Teachings when you will find that you are forced to accept a new version of the Church. This new version will not ever be accepted in the Eyes of God.

Your Jesus

 

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”.

Comment by (R.S.): Watch out for the 3rd instalment of this series of talks on Fatima and the Russian connection

 

POPE videos: Are they really prayer intentions?

A+M+D+G

Since Jan 2016, there has been a “pope video” released each month. These are called “Prayer Intentions”. The funny thing is that not one spiritual word is uttered during these videos – God, or Jesus, or the Holy Spirit…. are not mentioned. Although  in the first one you see a replica of baby Jesus (to get you in), beads that are NOT rosary beads (look at it carefully; they are Muslim prayer beads ) and a Jewish symbol and a buddha!!!

Look at the titles of the videos – they are all couched in humanist, relativist, and communist terms. (They are listed at the end of this post.)

At the centre of each video is a political, economic, or social agenda. Lots of words like solidarity, respect, opportunities, compensation eventhe common good and contribution to society”. How communist is that? His agenda of the one World Religion is very evident – “interreligious dialogue”, “restoring full ecclesial communion”.

The pope’s prayer for persecuted Christians is a few years too late. Not a word did he say when thousands were being decapitated, children and all. Why speak up now? To make himself look compassionate?

“…building of a society that places the human person at the center.”  God should be the centre of our (Christian) society, not human beings. (In fact the CCC states that the “Eucharist” is the source and summit of the Christian Life).

These errors such as modernism, relativism and humanism were condemned by popes over 100 years ago in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Emotive terms are used such as “the marginalized,  small  farmers, indigenous peoples, children, refugees, peace and justice, respect for women. Sounds like a politician, who is lobbying up support. Support for what” ? A place where  everyone can be the same, yet different – where there will be no mention of a “Catholic God”, where there is no hell; where no repentance is necessary; where God is all merciful and He does not judge? Is this what he’s aiming for?

For youth he “prayed” that they should immerse themselves in the great causes of the world”The world?? Where we are the centre of the universe – not God? Is this what we should be aiming for? What about our true purpose – to know, love and serve God faithfully in this life in order to merit our inheritance – to be happy with God forever in heaven?

The greatest causes of the world should be the salvation of souls (especially our own), and the spreading of Truth  in order that others may be saved. That Truth of course is Christ’s teachings. But no, this won’t happen because he doesn’t believe in proselytism, or a “Catholic God” or that you should even keep the commandments. On World Youth Day he told the youth to go and make “chaos”.

If you have missed out on seeing any of the pope videos,, you can watch them here: www.thepopevideo.org

Note that most of them have a one-line description, but since March this year, the text of the video has been written beneath it.  I wonder why. Is it because people are not getting the message by just watching it? or to make it easier to quote from the video?   Or is it to emphasize the importance of the message – to make sure we “get” it?  Is time perhaps running out?

Another viewpoint on these videos:

When Is a Prayer Intention Not a Prayer Intention?  This may seem like an obvious and trivial point. However, it is emblematic of the PR pontificate of Francis. When you think about it, juicing up monthly prayer intentions with cleverly produced agitprop turns “intentions” into something other than subjects for prayer. Your emotions are deliberately manipulated to promote an ideological agenda. Pope Francis can’t say “all religions are the same,” but the video sure can.” Read the whole article at: http://corbiniansbear.blogspot.com.au/2016/05/pope-videos-fake_5.html

They are persecuted and killed because they are Christians. Those who persecute them make no distinction between the religious communities to which they belong.

Do it with me, that they may be supported by the prayers and material help of all the Churches and communities.

For young people, that they might know how to respond generously to the vocation God has given them, and immerse themselves in the great causes of the world.

I know that you, young people, don’t want to be duped by a false freedom, always at the beck and call of momentary fashions and fads. I know that you aim high. Is that true, or am I wrong?
Don’t leave it to others to be the protagonists of change.
You, young people, are the ones who hold the future!  I ask you to be builders of the world, to work for a better world.  It is a challenge, yes it is a challenge. Do you accept it?
Pray with me that young people may respond generously to their own vocation and mobilize for the great causes of the world.” 

17. May, 2017: Christians of Africa, witnesses for peace

That Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice, and peace.

“When we look at Africa, we see much more than its great natural richness.
We see its joie de vivre, and above all, we see grounds for hope in Africa’s rich intellectual, cultural and religious heritage.
But we cannot fail to see the fratricidal wars decimating peoples and destroying these natural and cultural resources.
Let us join with our brothers and sisters of this great continent, and pray together that Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice, and peace.”

N.B. Does this mean that they don’t? that they perhaps are causing the trouble? Who are the ones being slaughtered?

18. June 2017: Eliminate arms trade

Let us pray all together that national leaders may firmly commit themselves to ending the arms trade which victimizes so many innocent people.

It is an absurd contradiction to speak of peace, to negotiate peace, and at the same time, promote or permit the arms trade.
Is this war or that war really a war to solve problems or is it a commercial war for selling weapons in illegal trade and so that the merchants of death get rich?
Let us put an end to this situation. Let us pray all together that national leaders may firmly commit themselves to ending the arms trade which victimizes so many innocent people.

Is this to ensure that the majority are unarmed, except for the military doing whatever the government agenda tells them to? What about when the NWO owns all governments – which they arguably already do, and commands evil, turning against good (or all) people? It seems like another strategy for control in the future NWO.

 

Prophecies (from the Book of Truth) fulfilled – Part 4

A+M+D+G

  1. They will not kneel before Mefeet

Prophecy:

All homage to Me, in My Churches, will soon be reduced to a mere nod in My direction. They will no longer genuflect before My Tabernacles. They will not bow before Me or kneel, nor will they pray before My Corpus on the Cross, for it will not be My Image they will be asked to venerate. I will be scourged and made to look ridiculous. My Words will be turned into the most peculiar verbiage and the Truth of My death on the Cross will be thrown out(19th November, 2013)

Prophecy fulfilled:

In  On 31 May, 2016, Christopher Ferrara wrote:  (in Fatima.org)

  • “On May 26 a Eucharistic procession presided over by Francis took place at the Basilica of Mary Major in Rome. Before the Blessed Sacrament exposed on the altar was a velvet kneeler for the Pope’s use. Francis declined to kneel upon He stood before the Blessed Sacrament exposed while priests and altar boys around him knelt in reverence.

See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10-fYVGu-4c&feature=youtu.be&t=2803

  • Francis has consistently declined to kneel before the Blessed Sacrament — the Eucharistic Lord — in any context. Not even when he confects the Eucharist himself at the altar; not even during his first Mass as Pope in the Sistine Chapel. Yet he readily kneels to receive the “blessing” of babbling charismatics and to wash and kiss the feet of non-Catholics, including Muslim women, during the foot-washing ritual with which he has replaced the traditional Holy Thursday

Quoting Francis’ predecessor, writing when he was Cardinal Ratzinger, the courageous Antonio Socci openly poses the question to which Catholics the world over would like an honest answer: “Father Bergoglio [as Francis calls himself], do you have a problem with the Holy Eucharist? Do you not know that in Christian spirituality the ‘inability to kneel is seen as the very essence of the diabolical’?” (In this regard, Ratzinger noted a curious detail in all depictions of the devil: the absence of knees for kneeling.)…”

 

  1. Destroy the Church from within:

Prophecy:

The enemies of my Son have many plans to destroy it and most of these will come from within. Heed my warning, and those I revealed to the world at Fatima. The enemy awaits and soon he will control, completely my Son’s Church on earth and millions will be led into error. (Mother of Salvation: 27 Oct. 2014)        AND

Substitution after substitution will evolve as the Teachings of my Son will be turned upside down and replaced with false secular doctrines.(January 3, 2015)

Prophecy fulfilled: (still evolving…)

  • “Most of these will come from within” : The very man who sits on chair of Peter with all his pronouncements –

Laudato Si ( environmentalism, humanism,) ;

Pope Prayer videos (socialism, communism);

Amoris Laetitia (errors on Divine teaching pronounced);,

  • Modernist cardinals and bishops who announce doctrines that twist Jesus’ teachings to suit the secular world – Cardinals Kasper, Daneels  and many more;
  • The destruction of the Friars of the Immaculate a Traditional order, which was growing in vocations
  • Replacing traditional bishops with liberal ones; etc…e.g. Cardinal Burke; The Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments – with 16 new members replacing traditionalist ones; over Christmas (2016)  Pope Francis personally ordered 3 priests to be dismissed from their duties in the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith; Cardinal Burke removed as head of the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican’s Supreme Court, in order to become the patron of the Order of the Knights of Malta (which is usually an honorary position); the Wall Street Journal on 8 Sept. 2016  and Weekend Australian reported that Cardinal Pell, as pope’s finance chief had discovereda total of €1.4 billion “tucked away” off the books”. He organized an audit, but it was disallowed.  “In June, the Vatican announced it had been scrapped, and soon many of his wide ranging powers were handed to others.” (see more details on this in future post: Prophecies Fulfilled Part 6)
  • Headline: 3 Feb.2017 – “Vatican event features array of population controllersand, it seems, no expert to counter them.” (lifeSite News). This will contribute to the destruction of Catholic teaching on morality and the value of life. It will also greatly enhance the pope’s document on the environment and the idea that man is nature’s greatest enemy.
  • September 17, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The German bishops continue their march towards schism. Today, on their own website, they published an apologia for same-sex “marriage,” crossing a whole new line in their battle to reform the Church’s basic moral teachings.

The errors are already becoming evident especially those promulgated in Amoris Laetitia, and the bishops around the world joining in “the spirit of francis” and ordering their priests to allow Communion for adulterers (e.g. guidelines given by bishops in Buenos Aires, and San Diego; the Maltese bishops Jan 2017; the German bishops- Feb. 2017).

More information on this topic will be posted in the future – Parts 6 and 8 (particularly the section on loyal followers dismissed and political movement)

Please Note: Prophecies fulfilled part 3 has been updated with an important point that Donna Liane remembered. It is the last dot point on the original post regarding the second part of the prophecy. “The Truth will soon be declared to be a lie…” See it at: https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/2017/01/27/prophecies-from-the-book-of-truth-fulfilled-part-3/

Marxism, Society and the Papacy

+AMDG+

  1. The November 2013 Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium was similar to the Repubblica interview in that the Pope (Francis) focuses on two great issues” that, he says, “will shape the future of humanity.” “These issues are first, the inclusion of the poor in society, and second, peace and social dialogue,” he wrote.

 

  1. Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen :index

On the book ‘Communism and the Consciousness of the West’ by Bishop Fulton Sheen he wrote this in the 1940’s.
He (i.e. the antichrist) will tempt Christians with the same three temptations with which he tempted Christ:

The temptation to turn stones into bread as an earthly Messiahs will become the temptation to sell freedom for security, making bread a political weapon which only those who think his way may eat.

The temptation to work a miracle by recklessly throwing himself from a steeple will become a plea to desert the lofty pinnacles of truth where faith and reason reign, for those lower depths where the masses live on slogans and propaganda.

He wants no proclamation of immutable principles from the lofty heights of a steeple, but mass organization through propaganda where only a common man directs the idiosyncrasies of common man. Opinions not truths, commentators not teachers, Gallup polls not principles, nature not graceto these golden calves will men toss themselves from their Christ.

The third temptation in which Satan asked Christ to adore him and all the kingdoms of the world would be His, will become the temptation to have a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religionone that renders unto Caesar even the things that are God’s.

 

3. Dr Anca-Maria Cernea, Association of Catholic Doctors of Bucharest,

spoke at the Rome Life Forum on 7 May 2016. This was reported on May 16, 2016 in Voice of the Family. The article can be seen entitled “Cultural Marxism: A Threat to the Family”.

http://voiceofthefamily.com/dr-anca-maria-cernea-cultural-marxism-a-threat-to-the-family/

In this article Dr Anca-Maria describes communism and it’s marxist ideologies and it’s attack on western culture. She describes the history of attacks on society from the legalization of abortion by Lenin back in 1920, no-fault divorce, radical sexual education, gay rights movement. She describes  howMarx expresses a profound hatred for God and for the entire human race. Marx doesn’t deny God’s existence, he is jealous of God; he hates Him and wants to take His place …. , and testimonies about strange ceremonies that Marx used to perform in his house, all of which indicate that he was definitely a worshiper of the devil.”

She sums up the threats into two categories:

  1. The war against family and against innocent human life and
  2. The Church and the war against family and innocent human life

Excerpts are below:

“The attack against the family and human life is part of a wider revolutionary attempt to re-design human society and human nature.

Its motivation is spiritual. It is a form of revolt against God, against His moral Law and the order of His Creation.

It’s not a spontaneous phenomenon. It’s a war, wedged by a gnostic-revolutionary ideology against the Judeo-Christian Civilization. It has been planned, and carried out over more than a century, leading to the situation we have now”

“Pope Leo XIII in the 19th century saw that communist ideology was an error of religious nature.

He called it “sect” of “socialists, communists, or nihilists” and he condemned it.

Pius XI in Divini Redemptoris (1937) said that communism concealed “a false messianic idea” and a “deceptive mysticism”.

But later on, until Centesimus Annus, the Popes no longer insisted on the religious nature of this error.”

“Our Lady of Fatima warned against “Russia’s errors”, which would spread all over the world.  And that is what happened since 1917.

The basic idea is the same as the serpent’s proposal to Adam and Eve, to eat the forbidden fruit, to ignore God’s commandment – “the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” (Gen 3:5).

“It appears nowadays to be even more revolutionary than classical Marxism – it pretends to reinvent the family, the sex identity and human nature, while classical Marxism was pretending to re-invent society on the basis of a violent take-over of property.”

“There has been no justice in Russia for the crimes of communism.

Moreover, there is no proof that the huge KGB structure that had infiltrated the whole world has been dissolved”

“The Russian government is anything but Christian. Russia still has not converted.

Our Lady has named “Russia”, not “the Soviet Union”.

So the devotion to Our Lady of Fatima is now timelier than ever. Russia and the whole world affected by Russia’s errors urgently need consecration to Our Lady. And conversion.”

“The Popes have constantly condemned communism since its earliest days.

Pius IX, Leo XIII, Pius XI and Pius XII have all radically rejected communism.

And they have also explicitly warned that communism was a threat to the family.

During the Second World War and in the 50s, this unyielding anticommunism expressed by the Pope and the Church has inspired the resistance to communism of millions of Catholics in Europe.”

And the Second Vatican Council did not issue a condemnation of communism – in spite of the fact that many Council Fathers had insisted for it.

Along the 2000 years of Church history, the purpose of all Councils (except Vatican II) was to react to error and warn against it. Councils condemned errors. That’s how Catholic theology has been formulated.

But Pope John XXIII said the Church in his time preferred mercy and was not going to pronounce condemnations.”

Some Catholic bishops went on fighting communism – the most outstanding example is the Polish Church under the leadership of Cardinal Wyszyński.

But not all Catholic bishops in the world did the same. Some even actively promoted communism inside the Church for instance, under the form of liberation theology in Latin America, a very successful KGB operation.”

“In the Catholic Social Doctrine after Vatican II, the rejection of Marxism became less radical, at the same time as hostility to economic freedom increased. The language of the encyclicals moved from normal Christian language to ideologically contaminated media language.

The family is the first and best institution for fighting poverty and social exclusion.

If we want to help people out of poverty, we should start by defending the family – and Christian morality, because Catholic charity cannot be separated from evangelization.”

“Clear language is an important condition for victory in the spiritual and in the cultural battles:

“Let your yes mean yes, and your no mean no. Anything more than this comes from the evil one. (Mt 5:37)”

“The shepherds’ duty is to make this distinction clear.

They should preach the Kingdom of God and His justice, not socialist “justice”, understood as government control over economy, or income redistribution.

They should preach peace as offered by Christ, not as stated by the UN.”

“The Church shepherds should preach real freedom, which is liberation from sin, from the slavery of Satan. Veritas liberabit vos. Real freedom means salvation, and thus can never be bad or excessive.”

“The real priority for the Church should be to lead us in the spiritual battle, to save souls, to tell the whole world, now that we have just one year left until the centenary of Fatima:

“Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” (Mt 3:2) The Kingdom of God, which is not from this world.

Paradise cannot be achieved on earth, good and evil will still coexist in earthly realities, until the Lord Himself will come in glory to judge the world and sort everything out.

But at least a certain degree of normality can be brought about through evangelization and conversion of persons and societies.

That’s the best we can do to “fix the world”.

When there is enough holiness and virtue in our communities, when enough people share the same objective moral criteria (the Ten Commandments), then we don’t need to rely on almighty government bureaucrats to keep society from becoming a lawless jungle.

Then people can trust each other, and citizens, as well as society as a whole, may enjoy freedom.

Then the institutions stick to their job and do it decently, the family is safe, and the culture of life wins over the ideologies of death.

Then civilization is morally strong, and apt to successfully defend itself from barbarism – and also to preach the Gospel to the barbarians and convert them to Christianity.

That’s how the Church has created Christian culture and civilization, that’s what the Church should keep doing.
