Today is the day of Pope Benedict XVI’s funeral.
He had endured nearly 10 years of isolation – some say “a prisoner”. The man who sits on the Chair of Peter – (elected, but not chosen) – during this time, made a point of visiting him, and even public displays of praying with him. He was forced into this position. Jesus message on the day that the false prophet was elected (13th March, 2013):
“My beloved Pope Benedict XVI was persecuted and fled, as foretold. I have not appointed this person, who claims to come in My Name. He, Pope Benedict, will guide My followers towards the Truth. I have not deserted him and I will hold him close to My Heart and give him the comfort he needs at this terrible time.His throne has been stolen. His power has not.”
About this day, it seemed to me that the date itself had to be manipulated – a mockery of Our Lady (13th) – one of many to come. I remember there were many things about this election – one was that there were more ballots than usual allowed on this day.
Pope Benedict was astute. He still managed to do things behind the scenes, even though he had “minders” who travelled between Francis’ court and the place where he lived. One thing that stands out, and that puts a smile on my face, when he collaborated with Cardinal Sarah to write a book, and published without the Vatican knowing anything about it. It was about celibacy and the priesthood. They got in first, before the Vatican could announce anything about celibacy. Afterwards, they tried to make the publisher remove Benedict’s name from the authors.
Last Humiliation: Requiem Without Roman Canon
The article below is from Gloria TV:
The Vatican has published the brochure for Benedict XVI’s funeral.
Most strikingly, for the first time since at least the 6th century, the Roman Canon will NOT be used at a Requiem for a Pope.
Also, the Gospel will not be solemnly sung in Latin – which has always been the case at such a liturgy.
Francis, 86, will not celebrate but be present in a cope. Nevertheless, he is referred to as the “presider”. His parts are labelled “The Holy Father”, but at the Eucharistic Prayer the booklet simply refers to “the celebrant” that is Cardinal Re, 88, the Dean of the College of Cardinals. (This, last part, is probably a blessing.
However, the devil does not have the last laugh. Today there will be many Requiem Masses celebrated for our beloved pontiff at the same time that it will be celebrated in Rome.
Prophesies involving Benedict and the devastation of Rome after his death.
- POPE PIUS X (1909)
Here is the prophecy of Pope Pius X, where he states that the “forced to flee” pope-martyr (also described by Sister Lucia of Fatima as the pope in white who will be killed) will have his name… Giuseppe = Joseph. This could only be Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict XVI:
” In 1909, during an audience for the general chapter of the Franciscan Order, Pope Pius X suddenly fell into a trance. The audience waited in reverent silence. When he awoke, the Pope cried out:
“What I see is terrifying! Will it be myself? Will it be my successor? What is certain is that the Pope will quit Rome, and in leaving the Vatican he will have to walk over the dead bodies of his priests. [This was precisely the vision sister Lucia received of the martyr pope dressed in white!
Just prior to his death (August 20, 1914), Pope Pius X had another vision:
“I have seen one of my successors, of the same name, who was fleeing over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in some hiding place; but after a brief respite he will die a cruel death.
- OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS (1563 – 1635)
“How the Church will suffer on that occasion – the dark night of the lack of a Prelate and Father to watch over them… The lukewarmness of all the souls consecrated to God in the priestly and religious state will delay the coming of this Prelate and Father.”
- July 7, 1880 Jesus tells Marie-Julie Jahenny:
“The church will be deprived of Her supreme chief that is now the guidance. [This is the loss of Benedict’s administrative function- 2013.] The Chief of the Church will be offended outrageously.” [But “as a Lamb before the slaughter, he opened not his mouth.” ]
- Ven. Bartholomew Holzhauser,founder of the secular clergy societies in the eighteenth century: “God will permit a great evil against His Church: they will come bursting in suddenly and unexpectedly while bishops and priests are asleep. They shall enter into Italy and devastate Rome, burn churches and destroy everything.”
- Mother Elena Aiello, famed stigmatic who was often consulted by Pope Pius XII: “Italy will be shaken by a great revolution (…) Russia will prevail over the nations, and especially over Italy, and will raise the red flag over the dome of St. Peter.”
- Elena Leonardi, spiritually guided by Padre Pio: “The Vatican will be invaded by communist revolutionaries. They will betray the Pope. Italy will suffer a major revolt and will be cleansed by a great revolution. Russia will march on Rome and the Pope will be severely endangered”.
- Maria Steiner, mystic: “The holy Church will be persecuted, Rome will be without a shepherd.” Instead, as Our Lord said, “The Abomination of Desolation” shall “stand in the Holy Place” which can only be St. Peter’s. Or as St. Paul said, that the “Man of Sin” “the Son of Perdition” will sit in “the Temple of God.”
- When Cardinal Manning Prophesied Exactly What We Are Living Through, Including the City of Rome Losing the Vicariate of Christ.
“The writers of the Church tell us that in the latter days the city of Rome will probably become apostate from the Church and Vicar of Jesus Christ; and that Rome will again be punished, for he will depart from it; and the judgment of God will fall on the place from which he once reigned over the nations of the world. For what is it that makes Rome sacred, but the presence of the Vicar of Jesus Christ? What has it that should be dear in the sight of God, save only the presence of the Vicar of His Son ? Let the Church of Christ depart from Rome, and Rome will be no more in the eyes of God than Jerusalem of old. Jerusalem, the Holy City, chosen by God, was cast down and consumed by fire, because it crucified the Lord of Glory; and the city of Rome, which has been the seat of the Vicar of Jesus Christ for eighteen hundred years, if it become apostate, like Jerusalem of old, will suffer a like condemnation. And, therefore, the writers of the Church tell us that the city of Rome has no prerogative except only that the Vicar of Christ is there ; and if it become unfaithful, the same judgments which fell on Jerusalem, hallowed though it was by the presence of the Son of God, of the Master, and not the disciple only, shall fall likewise upon Rome.
The apostasy of the city of Rome from the Vicar of Christ, and its destruction by Antichrist, may be thoughts so new to many Catholics, that I think it well to recite the text of theologians in the greatest repute. First, Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Viegas, Suarez, Bellarmine, and Bosius, that Rome shall apostatise from the faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ, and return to its ancient paganism.* Malvenda’s words are: “But Rome itself in the last times of the world will return to its ancient idolatry, power, and imperial greatness. It will cast out its Pontiff, altogether apostatise from the Christian faith, terribly persecute the Church, shed the blood of martyrs more cruelly than ever, and will recover its former state of abundant wealth, or even greater than it had under its first rulers.”
