The tremendous fire which suddenly and unexpectedly engulfed and ravished The Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris is certainly a momentous historical event which can be read in many ways. It was witnessed, with grief, the world over and from the outset, the stark simple words, which came to me in a text message in the early hours of Tuesday morning, “Notre Dame, Paris is on fire!”, drew a sense of ominous foreboding. I do not pretend to know what this fire means exactly; it can and does mean so many things which many people have already eloquently expressed.
The great symbol of Christendom in the Western World fallen.
The sorrow and the grief is appropriate and it seems to me a sign, an ominous sign, of what is to come. In fact, before I wrote this, I prayed and sought the words of God to direct my actions and words and this is what I opened it on in my Bible:
The Prelude to the Prophecy
He said then,
“Do you know why I have come to you? It is to tell you what is written in the Book of Truth.” (Daniel 11: 20).
The first thing I noticed, simultaneous to the sense of foreboding (the burning church seemed like a death knell) was that it was the roof that was on fire; the roof and the spires.
They lit up the skyline; it couldn’t be missed. Despite investigations, they have not been able to find the cause, accidental or otherwise, or any act of arson, which caused this mysterious fire- which started in the roof. Now that the embers have died down, we know too, that it was mostly contained to the roof as most of the rest of the structure was stone; bell towers and Rose stained glass windows remain intact. Immediately, I was reminded yet again of the fairly recent events, occurring also on significant liturgical days, where other churches’ roofs spectacularly collapsed and the prophecy about this made in the Book of Truth:
“My child, many signs will be made known from the Heavens, upon the roofs of my Son’s Churches, when the final changes are made in the Liturgy of the Holy Mass. All those who keep their eyes open and their ears alert will witness the Anger of my Son in a way in which they cannot fail to notice.
My Son promised that He would make known His Anger when they, within His Church on Earth, crucify Him again by defiling His Body and Blood during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”
(Extract from message given Sept 23rd, 2013)
Is His Body and Blood being defiled during Masses? Well, it is when unrepentant sinners -in serious, mortal sin- are allowed, enabled, even boldly encouraged to approach the Table of The Lord unworthily and commit sacrilege. I don’t just mean those in invalid second marriages, homosexuals or sexually abusive priests but also abortion-supporting Catholics (including politicians) in serious schism with Church teachings and all who regularly and with full knowledge do not keep His Commands. How many priests are so accepting now that they participate in and/or condone these sins, facilitating sacrilege, betraying Our Lord and rendering His Sacrifice meaningless? For what need is there to be saved, what need for Jesus to suffer so cruelly and to die for our Salvation, when there is no longer the notion of sin? If we deny sin, we deny the need for Salvation and Christ’s Sacrifice becomes a pointless doctrine. We cannot repent when we do not recognize that which we have become and in actual fact, we cannot be saved. It makes a mockery of His Sacrifice present in the Holy Sacrament. And this defiling of the Table of the Lord, leads me to another point.
In at least two of the examples, the church roof completely destroyed the modern altar beyond recognition, while leaving in place the traditional high altar. The scene of destruction at Notre Dame bears an uncanny resemblance to the scene at the Church in Malta; with empty pews looking on the scene of destruction where formerly a modern Novus Ordo altar stood, now revealing the old high altar instead, in all its glory. Look at them side by side here;
The altar is, of course, where the consecration takes place; it exists solely to confect the Holy Eucharist; the Body and Blood of Our Lord. So when Jesus makes His anger known in this way, it is clearly linked to the desecration of His Body and Blood and defiling of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, when the altar is destroyed.
I would not yet say that many signs have been made known on the roofs of Catholic Churches, only that some have definitely been made. This is also appropriate to the prophecy, as many signs will be made known …when the final changes are made in the Liturgy of the Holy Mass. These changes have not yet occurred.
These signs then, which could be the prelude to the fulfilment of the entire prophecy, (similar to the sub-heading in my Bible), are the initial warnings, leading up to the time when the final changes are made in the Holy Liturgy, when these signs will be multiplied.
And in their own right, at the very least, these signs seem to be making known the anger of God’ Son– on the roofs of His Churches. The tremendous combustion of the roof and spires of Notre Dame is one such Church and- it cannot be denied– is a significant sign, given at the start of Holy Week, 2019.
