Views of Catholic Priests and Catholic websites:
The following is an excerpt from Traditional Catholic Priest, taken from the writings by a priest who admits he doesn’t normally make any comments about a pope:
“Everywhere his speeches are used to suppress anyone in Catholic schools who may teach that abortion, birth control or homosexual sex is wrong. He told a woman to go to communion when she is divorced and living with another man who is not her husband. He removes great bishops like Bishop Finn, Bishop Mario Oliverti and others from their dioceses. He confuses Catholics everywhere as to what is Catholic dogma and doctrine while giving the impression these things can be changed. The media acclaim him as Man of the Year. It is obvious that there is something dreadfully wrong in Rome today.”
There exists online a Catholic website called Denzinger Bergoglio which has been set up by priests who oppose “Bergoglio-isms” with the true teaching of the Magisterium.
The false prophet:
Another Catholic website of note, which is maintained by a team of astute priests known as “Remnant Clergy”, is devoted to collating all the reported words of Francis. It is called the Biblical false prophet. Why? Who is the “biblical false prophet”? It is the name which the Bible gives to the second beast of the Apocalypse. Now, before you say, “That’s getting too outlandish!” please consider the following. Father Stefano Gobbi, founder of the Marian Movement of Priests, was warned by Our Lady back in 1989 that “Satan is entering the summit of the Church”. A sobering message recorded in a book entitled Our Lady Speaks to her Beloved Priests, which bears the imprimatur and nihil obstat. In this particular locution of 13 June 1989, she speaks of “a beast with two horns like a lamb” which is a reference to chapter 13 of St John’s Revelations, the very chapter to which Sister Lucia of Fatima drew to our attention, and secondly, it is a reference to what our Blessed Mother calls “the task of ecclesiastical Masonry in destroying the Church and building a new idol, namely a false christ and a false church”. She explains further that the two horns of this second beast are a reflection of those worn by the Jewish high priest, and indicative today of the Bishop’s mitre which also symbolically represents two horns to denote the fullness of the priesthood. This beast, then, is a religious leader who gathers all the people worldwide to usher them into the “false church of the false christ” and conspires with the antichrist for his short reign. Remember, too, that this Chapter 13 of the last book of the Holy Bible revolves around a new economic and global system implemented by the antichrist and his assistant, the “false prophet” (this title is given to him in Apocalypse Chapter 16, v. 13, and again in Chapter 19, v. 20)
That description – the “false prophet” – has also featured in a series of daily prophetic messages which occurred from late 2010 until early this year, given to an Irish woman who Jesus has called “Maria Divine Mercy” for the sake of anonymity. Both Jesus and God the Father and our Blessed Mother (under the title Mother of Salvation) have revealed everything that is about to take place in the world to prepare mankind for the Warning which is close at hand. These messages have been gathered so far into four (now 5) volumes called The Book of Truth. This Book of Truth is mentioned in Daniel 10:21 where the Archangel Gabriel opens the book to show Daniel visions of the future. Daniel is overwhelmed by what he sees and collapses in a state of great anguish; then Gabriel seals the Book until the End of Time (Daniel 12:4). Maria Divine Mercy has been told that the time has arrived for this book to be unsealed and its contents brought to light, to awaken us to the enormity of impending world changes and how to deal with them. There are no doubts in my mind about the authenticity of these messages, because they are so prolific and of infinite detail, and quite obviously are not of any human source. They speak with a great authority, bear a divine quality (“My sheep know My voice”), and explain not only the cryptic symbolism of the Apocalypse but re-teach the fundamental tenets and very essence of our faith and Catholic traditions. The other reason I believe they are genuine heavenly messages is because of the impact they have had on several people whom I know. Two of them, my oldest son and a Polish friend, have come back to the confessional after twenty years or more, and have returned to the fullness of faith, the Church and the sacraments.
Pope Benedict’s XVI‘s resignation:
On March 5 in 2011, Maria was told, “Ask everyone to pray for My beloved Holy Vicar Pope Benedict for he is surrounded by the enemies of My Eternal Father.” And then, with regard to the “Rise of the False Prophet”, Jesus says to Maria, “Pray, pray, pray that the False Prophet will be identified for what he is. Watch out for his demeanour. His attention seeking agenda, the way in which my misguided sacred servants will drop in awe at his feet. Then listen to what he has to say carefully. His humility will be false. His intentions mischievous and the love he exudes will be all about him. He will be seen as being innovative, dynamic – a breath of fresh air. While he is driven and energetic, his powers will not come from God, the Eternal Father…” Now, this was written in 2011, two years before Francis was elected and those words have actually been used by admirers to describe him, “a breath of fresh air”!!
On 7 June 2011, Jesus told Maria, “… the False Prophet is about to seduce you. Charm you. Convince you that he represents the truth (…) Pray to Me for the graces required to ensure you will rise above the deceit (…) otherwise the False Prophet will ensnare My beloved children through his charismatic charmful ways…” And on 11 February 2012, Jesus confided to Maria, “Last year I told you of the plot within the corridors of the Vatican (…) soon My poor Holy Vicar Pope Benedict XVI will be ousted from the Holy See in Rome.” These words were recorded exactly one year to the day before Pope Benedict’s surprise announcement of resignation. Coincidence!!?
Signs from the heavens
The day on which Pope Benedict resigned in 2011 a bolt of lightning struck the dome of St Peters in Rome just hours after his announcement. I have seen this captured on video and there is no way it could have been faked. It made headlines around the world. Five days later on 15 February a powerful meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk in Russia and shook all of Europe with its impact. Russia! – the very nation central to Fatima prophecy. Since then Russia has been increasing its militarization efforts, and so has China, the former expanding its borders westward, the latter expanding into the Pacific region. The lightning and meteor are surely signs from the heavens which we are encouraged to heed.
In the Diary of the first canonized saint of the 21st Century, Polish Saint Faustina, who was told by Jesus that she would prepare the world for Christ’s Final Coming, there is a very pertinent entry on 17 December 1936. She wrote, “I have offered this day for priests. I have suffered today more than ever before, both interiorly and exteriorly I did not know it was possible to suffer so much in one day. I tried to make a Holy Hour, in the course of which my spirit had a taste of the bitterness of the Garden of Gethsemane.” Well, it was in Gethsemane that Jesus tasted the bitterness of betrayal with a kiss, and on that very day which St Faustina offered her horrendous suffering for priests, 17 December 1936, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born. Coincidence!!?
Strategic name for a pope
It is intriguing, isn’t it, that a Jesuit should choose a Franciscan saint as his papal name. Could this be because Francis of Assisi is a saint with universal appeal – a strategic choice therefore – especially now, with his “ecological star power” as one reporter described him after the new encyclical was released. With Laudato Si’ on the table, Francis recently invited to Rome sixty mayors of major cities around the world for a two day seminar with the intention of applying pressure to world leaders to adapt climate-change measures which will be in the spotlight this coming December (that was in 2015) in Paris. Climate-change will be the vehicle used by the UN to take emergency action and call for global governance: according to a leak to Fox News last year, a “planetary announcement” in 2015 will herald the “most transformational programme in human history” And, would you believe it, Francis is obviously part of this action. We know that when the New World Order is in place there will be not only one government but one religion permitted, and this will be instituted and backed by the UN, its focus on worship of Mother Earth – and then the antichrist! This “Man of Peace” to come, who will usher in the devil’s replica of God’s Kingdom, will be a charismatic figure seen by Buddhists as the long awaited Fifth Buddha, by Muslims as the imminent 12th Imam, by Jews as the Messiah, and by the Christian world as the Returned Christ, and he will perform miracles to convince humanity of his claim as the World Teacher (see 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12). The Grand Deception, predicted twenty centuries ago in St John’s apocalyptic visions, will ensnare “even the elite”. We forget that Satan with his devious intelligence never comes in the form of blatantly obvious evil but, instead, poses as an angel of light.
In 1999 our Blessed Lady purportedly told one of our bona fide seers (and unfortunately I cannot recall who it was, although the words have stuck in my mind): “If the Catholic people do not pray more, the devil will be ruling the Church in ten years!”
Prophecy of St Francis
Another interesting coincidence: the current pontiff’s namesake, St Francis of Assisi, had a prophecy about the times we are living through. As mentioned earlier, we arrived at this scripturally heralded period in 2005 (and interestingly enough, that same year, only a few weeks prior to the death of John Paul II, Sister Lucia the final seer of Fatima also died on 13 February). How long this period called “the end of time” will last, we have no idea whatsoever, but St Francis said that in these days, because of the apostasy in the Church, God would send not a pastor but a destroyer.
During this same period, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich witnessed the presence of “two popes”, one very sad, she said, and the other baleful, leading “the false church with a false christ.”
June 18th this year (2015) was a significant date, especially being the 50th anniversary of Our Lady of Garabandal’s second and final message with regard to “many Cardinals, many bishops, many priests are leading the faithful down the road to perdition.” On that very anniversary Francis I released his controversial encyclical Laudato Si.
I wrote the following to the Editor at the NZ Catholic,
How can Pope Francis present to the faithful as “fact” the contentious science of global warming? Large segments of the scientific community beg to differ with the United Nations IPCC and their hypothesis which claims carbon emissions are the culprit of climate change.
It is indeed disturbing that the head of the Church now wishes to make an unholy alliance between Catholic belief and the dubious directives of the UN, a godless body which believes in global control and population reduction.
And how can Pope Francis single out the rich and greedy as blameworthy for the planetary crisis? In numerous heavenly messages today which have been given to holy souls and Catholic mystics, Jesus has revealed that our planet is convulsing under the weight of humanity’s sins – everyone’s sins, rich and poor, not just one particular strata or class of people.
Yes, we are indeed caretakers of our global home but the Earth is an organism intrinsically interconnected with its human occupants, all part of the same creation, and so the only solution to the present environmental disorder is a spiritual one. We are called to sincere repentance, to return to God (whom so many currently deny and reject) and to turn from sin with true conversion of heart.
Probably this letter will never be published (it wasn’t). It is up to the discretion of the Editor who has been happily, up till now, printing various articles and letters I have sent in. Cardinal Pell has said publicly, “The Church has got no mandate from the Lord to pronounce on scientific matters!” However, with Francis cozying up to world opinion, journalists of the secular press have sprung to his defense when critics from within the Church have questioned the scientific basis of Laudato Si’! Has any pope in the past ever been defended by the world before? Shouldn’t that be telling us something?
Garabandal and the Third Secret of Fatima – too close to the truth.
With regard to the apparitions of Garabandal, 1961-1965, the present regime will never rule favorably for these supernatural events. The message from there is far too close to the bone and therefore unpopular. Just as the voice of the prophets was always silenced in Israel, so will Christ’s Church in its apostasy follow suit. There is a further undisclosed aspect to Fatima too, which echoes Garabandal. From all the evidence amassed, and deductions made from the accumulation of facts, investigative Catholic journalists such as Antonio Socci and Christopher Ferrara have concluded that there definitely is a second part to the Third Secret of Fatima, emphasized by two different envelopes, both of which were sighted in the hands of Cardinal Bertone. The spoken words of Our Lady which follow the phrase, “In Portugal the dogma of faith will be preserved, etc” are written on a separate sheet of paper of 25 lines, unlike the two pages of her diary of 62 lines, and it is believed that Our lady’s words probably describe corruption in the higher ranks of the Church. The cover-up, naturally, has been by the guilty parties. Isn’t it revealing, then, that within 12 months of the sealed secret’s suppression in 1960, the year designated by Our Blessed Mother for its opening and publication, she began appearing at Garabandal and was quite direct: “Many cardinals, many bishops, many priests are leading the faithful down the road to perdition.” Perhaps because of this, the Garabandal events were most unpopular with the hierarchy. Clearly the Virgin Mary our Mother is trying to tell us something we should heed! When Garabandal became overlooked, doubted, and consigned to the past, our determined Mother then appeared to Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa in Akita. “Cardinal will be against Cardinal,” she warned, “and Bishop against Bishop!” We are seeing the outbreak of those events right now with the two contentious Synods of 2014 and 2015.
Father Paul Kramer, the learned American priest who has published a number of books and articles, has recently made known something he found out from contacts inside the Vatican. When Vladimir Putin had his audience with Francis last year, Putin himself apparently requested that the consecration of Russia be done according to Our Lady’s requirements. Francis told him, “We won’t discuss Fatima!”
“The greatest schism in the history of the Church” was how Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich described the event now looming on the horizon. When it happens (and according to current locutions and urgent heavenly messages to holy souls such as Luz de Maria in Argentina, this terrible division is only moments away) where will we be? Which side of the schism? Will we be with the small remnant Church, the “cottages of faith” mentioned in prophecies and the modern equivalent of the catacombs? Or will we go with the flow of the erring main body of the Church to be embraced by the Beast and his one-world religion? I know it sounds dramatic but that is the reality of where we have come to. These are serious times.
Going back to the Church-approved apparitions of Our Lady of La Salette, she warned us as early as 1846: “Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist. For now is the time of times, the end of all ends. The Church will be in eclipse, the world will be in dismay… Now is the time; the abyss is opening. Here is the king of kings of darkness, here is the Beast with his subjects, calling himself the saviour of the world.”
Well, P, there it is. I lay all the facts and prophecies before you for your consideration. Now I leave it with you to mull over, to pray about earnestly, and to decide whether this is true or merely some fantastic distortion of reality! Of course, I know it is not – that’s why I’ve gone to the bother of writing all this.
If you wish I can provide you with aforementioned Prophecy of St Francis along with the study which my friend in San Francisco wrote, Is Pope Francis the False Prophet?, an insightful examination of the words and quotes from his interviews which reveal much about the inner man.
Every blessing and grace in God’s Peace, through Jesus and Mary
