The Third Secret: The Centenary of Fatima and the Sign of Jonah


And what are we in comparison with those believers and saints who shall then exist, seeing that they shall be tested by the loosing of an enemy with whom we make war at the greatest peril even when he is bound?
(St. Augustine of Hippo, City of God, XX:8)

Certain events took place last year which my mind is still grappling to come to terms with. In 2017, some key components of my research on the subject of Catholic eschatology was suddenly propelled into the limelight, and a number of rather extraordinary events unfolded which gave me considerable pause for thought. It should be helpful to recap some of these events below in order to gain a sense of perspective (more for myself than anyone else). After my blog post The Sign of Jonah and the Binding of Satan was plagiarised by the hugely popular Protestant prophecy preacher Pastor Mark Biltz and subsequently went viral, racking up millions of views on YouTube, I attempted to contact several journalists in an attempt to bring to light that this material originated from my research, rather than Pastor Biltz.

Biltz's original video plagiarising my work in November 2016 can be seen below, and was later massively popularised by his publishers World Net Daily and Pastor Steve Cioccolanti, whose YouTube channels commands massive influence in the field of Protestant Rapture theology/dispensationalism.

I had wanted to correct the fact that this material had been stripped of its roots in Catholic eschatology and completely missed the key point as to what I was attempting to communicate. The core message I wanted to highlight was the fact that in Matt 12, the sign of Jonah is mentioned by Christ in the same context as the "binding of the strong man". In his monumental text The City of God, the Church Doctor St. Augustine of Hippo demonstrated that this passage was directly related to the period of the unbinding of Satan at the end of the Millennium in Rev 20: The Lord Jesus Christ Himself says, No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man — meaning by the strong man the devil, because he had power to take captive the human race; and meaning by his goods which he was to take, those who had been held by the devil in various sins and iniquities, but were to become believers in Himself. It was then for the binding of this strong one that the apostle saw in the Apocalypse an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of the abyss, and a chain in his hand. And he laid hold, he says, on the dragon, that old serpent, which is called the devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,— that is, bridled and restrained his power so that he could not seduce and gain possession of those who were to be freed. (St. Augustine of Hippo, City of God XX:7) My central hypothesis was given the fact that the First World War Eclipse of 21st August, 1914 had directly crossed the site of ancient Nineveh, much like the Bur Sagale Solar Eclipse of 763BC (the original "sign of Jonah") this was a major sign announcing that the tumultuous events of the 20th century were directly related to period of the unbinding of Satan for the "little while" described in Rev 20: And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time... When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. (Rev 20:1-3, 7-9) The release of Satan to gather the nations of the world together for war at the end of the "thousand years" (i.e. the Sabbath Millennium discussed by the Early Church Fathers) is exactly what was implied by the prophetic vision of Pope Leo XIII concerning the century of Satan's greater power, which remains my most popular blog post at over 90,000 pageviews. The only publication to respond to my correspondence attempting to highlight Pastor Biltz's plagiarism of my work was the online edition of the British tabloid The Daily Star. They were more interested in my research concerning the potential future fate of America reflected in the message of Fatima though, and decided to concentrate on this subject, rather than flagging up Biltz's plagiarism of my work. This was the first time any of the material in my book concerning the threat of a mega-tsunami event generated by the lateral collapse of the volcano Cumbre Vieja in the Canary Islands has been covered by the mainstream media. You can read the full article here Even though this story was sensationalised in a typically crass fashion (as you would expect from a tabloid newspaper), and there were a number of glaring factual errors (such as the claim that Sr. Lucia was blind and that she has already been canonised), the basic gist of my material was communicated to a wide audience. Soon after this article was published, the story was then also circulated by the popular Greek newspaper Protos Thema (here) and a number of YouTube videos repeating this subject sprang up in various different languages (see here for a video in Russian with over 45,000 views, or here for a video in Chinese with over 37,000 views). Around the same time on 3rd October, 2017, I made what was undoubtedly my greatest breakthrough in my writing career, when my first article was published on Vatican Insider at La Stampa, showing that the "Filial Correction" of Pope Francis by 250 Catholic theologians had breached the guidelines outlaid in the CDF document Donum Veritatas: On the Ecclesial Vocation of the Theologian (see here). Vatican Insider is arguably one of the most influential publications in the Catholic Church, since it is run by the famous Vaticanista Andrea Tornielli, a key aide and personal friend of Pope Francis. My friend and fellow expert on Catholic eschatology Stephen Walford was famously granted a 45-minute private audience with Pope Francis in recognition of the importance of his articles on Vatican Insider (see here), and was extended the extraordinary privilege of having the Holy Father provide the preface for his recently published book Pope Francis, the Family and Divorce: In Defence of Truth and Mercy. My first article on Vatican Insider was quickly attacked by The Remnant Newspaper (see here and here), and also by Life Site News (see here and here). My two other articles on Vatican Insider on the dogma of the indefectibility of the Church (here and here) remain among the best defences against the accusations of Pope Francis (or any pope) falling into formal heresy by issuing heretical documents as part of the authentic papal magisterium. Although a brief and rather weak attempt at critiquing my research on the dogma of the indefectibility of the Church in Vatican Insider was made by Fr. Brian Harrison here (an emeritus professor of theology at the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico), there hasn't been any other credible attempt to challenge the content of these articles, since doing so would effectively deny a dogma of the Catholic faith which must be firmly held by all believers. Turning back to my material on the Third Secret being covered by The Daily Star, I have to emphasise categorically that I did not attempt to indicate that the tsunami seen by Sr. Lucia during the 1944 Tuy apparition of the Virgin Mary would occur on the centenary of the Miracle of the Sun in October 2017. The Daily Star merely put its own spin on my writing to give that impression. The timeline I present in my book clearly theorizes that this event will only occur at the end of the period of the restoration of the Church foretold in both Sacred Scripture and private prophecy, just before the rise to power of the Antichrist. The period of the restoration of the Church under the ministry of the Two Witnesses, referred to as the renovatio mundi in Medieval prophecy, is still clearly to take place in the future, and can only occur at the end of the "short time" given to Satan alluded to in the vision of Pope Leo XIII. Most Catholics would agree that we are living in the age of apostasy which was foretold to take place towards the end of the world, when the love of many would grow cold because of increase of evil (which can be put down as a consequence of the unbinding of Satan): You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. (Matt 24:6-14) As Jesus states in the Olivet discourse, at the end of this period of trial for the Church the Gospel would then be preached throughout the world during the period of restoration, and only then would the end of the world come about with the appearance of the Antichrist as the "abomination of desolation". The destruction of the eschatological world power referred to as "Babylon" in the Apocalypse occurs immediately before the rise to power of the Antichrist, after which the "ten kings" hand over world dominion to the Beast:

Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said “With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again. (Rev 18:21)


“The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled. The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”
(Rev 16:12-18)
So according to this scenario, any potential mega-tsunami threat caused by the collapse of Cumbre Vieja is still years in the future after the Church has been restored and purified to prepare itself for the coming of the Bridegroom, and I don't care to speculate on exact dates for any such event. The 1944 Tuy apparition is when Sr. Lucia was instructed to write down the contents of the Third Secret, and is thought by many to intimately related to the secret itself. The Daily Star article covering my research was first published on 18th Sept, 2017, quickly followed by an article on Protos Thema on 19th Sept. By weird coincidence, a seismic swarm occurred at Cumbre Vieja just three weeks later, beginning on October 7th, 2017 sparking fears of an imminent eruption at La Palma. This was the first sign of any volcanic activity at Cumbre Vieja since its last eruption in 1971, and was just a week after the ominous date of Michaelmas/Yom Kippur on 29th Sept, 2017 - which was the central feature of the "40 day" countdown highlighted by Pastor Mark Biltz in his various YouTube videos plagiarising my material on the sign of Jonah. Biltz's plagiarism of my material on the sign of Jonah was picked up by Pastor Steve Cioccolanti in the below YouTube video, and subsequently went viral in the run-up to the Great American Solar Eclipse. The below video alone has over a million views, and there were multiple other videos created on this subject, each attracting millions of views apiece. Biltz even appeared on the massively popular Jim Bakker show a number of times promoting my research on the sign of Jonah, ensuring that it became a veritable phenomenon on the approach to the eclipse itself. Once I contacted Pastor Cioccolanti and presented him with the evidence that this material originated from my research, he then issued a number of videos highlighting the fact that Pastor Biltz had plagiarised my work in order to promote his book God's Day Timer (which of course fails to mention anything about the sign of Jonah being related to the Bur Sagale Eclipse, or the First World War Eclipse). Despite the fact that Pastor Cioccolanti flagged up Biltz's plagiarism of my work in a video with over 200,000 views, (watch above from the 5 minute mark), Pastor Biltz has still refused to apologize or even acknowledge that he directly lifted the material on the sign of Jonah from my blog. Although my material on the sign of Jonah was robbed of its connection with the period of the unbinding of Satan at the end of the Millennium by Pastor Biltz, he did manage to promote my research on this subject to an audience of millions in the approach of the Great American Solar Eclipse. America experienced a dizzying array of natural disasters during the course of the 40-day period in the wake of the solar eclipse, and anyone who took heed of Biltz's videos saw the hand of God in these events, including Pastor Cioccolanti (see the video below, with over half a million views). I find it completely mind-binding that at this precise time period, the greatest scare concerning apocalyptic events (besides the North Korean Nuclear Crisis) had centred upon the exact subject of the threat presented by Cumbre Vieja. Once the seismic activity at Cumbre Vieja ignited fears of a possible volcanic eruption in October 2017, The Daily Star then published another number of articles referencing my research on Sr. Lucia's 1944 Tuy apparition here and here.
It seems beyond coincidence that this seismic activity at Cumbre Vieja took place just before the centenary of the Miracle of the Sun on the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary - since the Virgin Mary had repeatedly requested that the shepherd children of Fatima should pray the Rosary every day for the conversion of sinners. Recourse to the Rosary and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for the conversion of sinners lies at the core of the message of Fatima. As Cardinal Ratzinger (future Pope Benedict XVI) stated in The Message of Fatima: The first and second parts of the “secret” of Fatima have already been so amply discussed in the relative literature that there is no need to deal with them again here. I would just like to recall briefly the most significant point. For one terrible moment, the children were given a vision of hell. They saw the fall of “the souls of poor sinners”. And now they are told why they have been exposed to this moment: “in order to save souls”—to show the way to salvation. The words of the First Letter of Peter come to mind: “As the outcome of your faith you obtain the salvation of your souls” (1:9). To reach this goal, the way indicated —surprisingly for people from the Anglo-Saxon and German cultural world—is devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The fact that this seismic activity took place at this particular date - just immediately after the details of the 1944 Tuy apparition was widely popularised in the secular media (with its message reaching tens of thousands of people), in the immediate aftermath of the 40-day period of repentance being communicated to millions of Christians worldwide, seems to be a sign that the contents of the vision seen by Sr. Lucia is indeed related to a volcanic collapse at this precise location. As I note in some detail in the post The Canary Islands and the Seven Burning Mountains of Enoch, the exact location of the seven "burning mountains" standing at the entrance to the underworld at the ends of the earth in the Book of Enoch was clearly based on the description of the Canary Islands in Greek mythology - which was the fabled location of the Isles of the Blessed. Given the fact that the Book of Enoch was a known source used by the author of the Apocalypse, this means that the "great mountain, burning with fire" being thrown into the sea described in Rev 8:8 can be triangulated to the location of the Canary Islands. The fact that this seismic activity at Cumbre Vieja took place almost immediately after the 40-day period associated with the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017 demands that we pay close attention to a possible link between the "sign of Jonah" sequence of eclipses beginning on 21st August 1914 (marking both the beginning and the end of the period of the unbinding of Satan), acting as a warning concerning the tsunami seen in Sr. Lucia's 1944 Tuy vision. Anyone who has paid close attention to this blog and the comments section at the end of each post will know that what I had really speculated was that at the end of the 40 day period corresponding with the Hebrew month of Elul after the 2017 Solar Eclipse, America would face the prospect of nuclear war but would ultimately be spared, just like the ancient Ninevites were spared from destruction after Jonah had announced the city's destruction. This is precisely what was indicated in the Third Secret of Fatima - that the hand of the angel with the flaming sword would be stayed by the rays issuing from the hands of Our Lady to allow for a period of penance during the restoration of the Church: The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fátima, on 13 July 1917.
I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine.
After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: 'Penance, Penance, Penance!'. And we saw in an immense light that is God: 'something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a Bishop dressed in White 'we had the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.
Tuy-3-1-1944
When the Third Secret was first published in 2000, Cardinal Ratzinger had indicated that the flaming sword should be interpreted as the threat of nuclear war: Let us now examine more closely the single images. The angel with the flaming sword on the left of the Mother of God recalls similar images in the Book of Revelation. This represents the threat of judgement which looms over the world. Today the prospect that the world might be reduced to ashes by a sea of fire no longer seems pure fantasy: man himself, with his inventions, has forged the flaming sword. The vision then shows the power which stands opposed to the force of destruction—the splendour of the Mother of God and, stemming from this in a certain way, the summons to penance. In this way, the importance of human freedom is underlined: the future is not in fact unchangeably set, and the image which the children saw is in no way a film preview of a future in which nothing can be changed. Indeed, the whole point of the vision is to bring freedom onto the scene and to steer freedom in a positive direction. The purpose of the vision is not to show a film of an irrevocably fixed future. Its meaning is exactly the opposite: it is meant to mobilize the forces of change in the right direction. (Cardinal Ratzinger, Theological Commentary, The Message of Fatima) So the threat presented by the angel's sword is intimately related to nuclear war, and the Third Secret thus foretold that the world would be spared from nuclear war due to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin. The fact that the world came to the brink of nuclear war precisely at the end of the 40-day period connected with the 2017 solar eclipse on the centenary of Fatima during the North Korean Nuclear Missile Crisis in late September of that year, makes it almost certain that the world was only spared from the threat of chastisement due to Our Lady staying the hands of the angel with the flaming sword. The rumblings at Cumbre Vieja immediately after this thus appears to be a further warning confirming the threat of God's judgment if humanity continues to turn its back on Christ. The radical turnaround from the North Korean Nuclear Missile Crisis, with President Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-un in June 2018, appears to indicate that some form of divine intercession has been at play during the centenary of Fatima. It would thus seem safe to attribute the remarkable nature of this climbdown to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin, since the prevention of nuclear war was clearly foretold in the Third Secret of Fatima. The fact that the feast of Michaelmas on the 29th September 2017 was highlighted by the 40-day countdown from the solar eclipse gives a further indication of the threat of judgement from the angel with the flaming sword. It is interesting to note that Michaelmas had overlapped the Jewish Day of Atonement on this particular year. A feast day which is also alluded to in the Third Secret of Fatima, with the two angels sprinkling the blood of the martyrs making their journey towards heaven. The theme of the sprinkling of blood alludes to the actions of the Jewish High Priest on the Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur, who sprinkled the blood of sacrifice on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant for the forgiveness of the sins of Israel; and the Ark was itself adorned with the two cherubim represented in the Third Secret. We can only hope and pray that the Church will soon be restored as the "little while" given to Satan finally draws to a close. The appearance of the "sign of Jonah" is intimately connected with the binding and unbinding of the "strong man" of Matt 12, which according to St. Augustine of Hippo, occurs at the end of the Sabbath Millennium discussed by the Early Church Fathers. in the sixth thousand of years or sixth millennium (the latter part of which is now passing), as if during the sixth day, which is to be followed by a Sabbath which has no evening, the endless rest of the saints, so that, speaking of a part under the name of the whole, he calls the last part of the millennium — the part, that is, which had yet to expire before the end of the world — a thousand years; or he used the thousand years as an equivalent for the whole duration of this world, employing the number of perfection to mark the fullness of time.
(St. Augustine of Hippo, City of God XX:7) As I discuss at some length in my book, the timing of the Sabbath Millennium can be firmly dated to the 20th century using the biblical chronology established by the Church Doctor St. Bede the Venerable. My strict adherence to the Augustinian model of eschatology as a means of interpreting the significance of the unbinding of Satan at the end of the Millennium in relation to Pope Leo XIII's vision concerning the events of the 20th century is the primary reason I have come to loggerheads with the followers of Fr. Joseph Iannuzzi. The followers of Fr. Iannuzzi promote the millenarian eschatology of Joachim de Fiore, which was refuted by St. Thomas Aquinas and condemned by the Church. In his various books on this subject, Fr. Iannuzzi attempts to align himself with the Protestant dispensationalist understanding of the Millennium, which is essentially millennialist/millenarian in nature. According to Fr. Iannuzzi, Satan will only be bound at some point in the future during a millenarian age of total world peace on earth, rather than being bound through Christ's sacrifice on the Cross to facilitate the spread of the Gospel. Hopefully the Church authorities will soon confute the heretical eschatology of Fr. Iannuzzi in order to confirm that Catholics must adhere to St. Augustine of Hippo's understanding of the Millennium of Rev 20, since the Catechism of the Catholic Church condemns all forms of millenarianism as the "deception of the Antichrist": The Antichrist's deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgement. the Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the "intrinsically perverse" political form of a secular messianism. (CCC 676)

I approached a solicitor about this RC and they've drawn up a brief and presented it to a barrister. I'm still waiting to hear back from the barrister. It's basically theft of intellectual property.

Hi Emmett,
Thank you once more for your incredible insights.
I can understand your frustrations with the plagiarism challenge as it represents lost potential acknowlegement as well as the message being incomplete or manipulated In its presentation to the Protestant multitudes. I recall that Christ said to the apostles that who is with me cannot be against me. Perhaps enough followers of these Protestant ministers put on their sack cloth and ashes to warrant Our Lady's aid. I do believe the rewards of your research and writing will be in eternity. I do not suggest this as to dismiss the injustice but as encouragement to persevere and embrace what crosses we carry. We must continue to pray for each other and the church.
May God continue to bless you and your most important work.
Michael G

"As Jesus states in the Olivet discourse, at the end of this period of trial for the Church the Gospel would then be preached throughout the world during the period of restoration"

He absolutely did not say it would during place during the restoration. Readers can judge it for themselves as the olivet discourse is right above this text. All Christ said was the Gospel would be preached to the ends of the earth - as is happening right now. That is a slight of hand that hurts your credibility in my eyes, I am sorry to say.

Mark W said...

I haven't had time to read the post yet, but one point to be made.

I don't know about Irish/UK law, but in the US you'd want to be VERY careful what you put on blog posts if you're thinking about litigation. Everything you publish can be used against you if you're not careful.

RC said...

Can you be more specific? Do author's in the states not have right's to their intellectual property? When you say publish are you refering to what the author alleges or what is said in the comment box which do not automatically represent the views of the author?

Mark W said...

Not quite. It may be more to do with the litigation system here in the US than anything else. I'm not a lawyer (we don't have the split between barrister and solicitor). I just know that when litigating a case in the US, anything you put in print can be turned against you by the opposing attorney if there's an opportunity to do so. Everything is fair game, and you don't want to say/write something that could ultimately make things more difficult for your case. Lawyers will always try to twist things to their advantage.

Emmett O'Regan said...

It's something I'll have to do, otherwise, Biltz will continue to get the credit for making these discoveries every time a significant solar eclipse comes round - especially the next one in 2024. It's a fairly straightforward case. The material on the sign of Jonah, the First World War Eclipse, the Bur Sagale Eclipse, etc. is covered in my book, while none of it is present in Biltz's book which was published around the same time. He clearly stole it from me and stripped it of its Catholic, Augustinian context (i.e. the sign of Jonah being related to the period of Satan's greater power/unbinding at the end of the "Sabbath Millennium"). If Biltz wants to cover my material, fine. But he should be noting the original context it was made so his audience is aware of the hypothesis in its entirety, which is distinctly Catholic in nature. Everyone who has took an interest in these ideas should be aware of the full facts. If there's a chance that this could sway people towards Catholicism, I'm willing to fight to protect my intellectual property.

RC said...

Good on you Emmett
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for what is right!!

Emmett O'Regan said...

Cheers RC!

Mark W said...

RC - what makes you think that lawyers have any concern for what's right?

And absolutely, you have to protect your intellectual property rights. That goes without question, Emmett.

RC said...

True Mark but should never stop one in the pursuit of the truth, and remember friend the great St Thomas More was a lawyer :) will aim a few prayers to him for Emmetts intentions.
Btw did you hear some of the chants at the recent march in Poland commemorating independence? "Ave Ave, Christus Rex" God i love the Polish people!!

"God i love the Polish people!!"... amen to that! I believe that the Polish people still have an important role to play still leading up to the end times, maybe as part of the Visegrad Group. Even secular sources speculate with solid data backing up the opinions that Poland is a country whose star is on the rise (see: Friedman's book "The Next 100 Years" as one example).

It was heartbreaking to see some straight-up neo-Nazi groups (in Poland of all places!!) taking part the 100-year anniversary march, but other than that it made me swell with pride. I so wish there were a Christian Democrat-type party in North America where *all( Church teachings (against the death penalty, against abortion, the fully supports trade unions and against the so called "right-to-work" machination of ALEC that fly in the face of Catholic social teaching introduced by Leo XIII and expounded on by every pope since, as well as the preferential option for the poor that all new legislation by toward their benefit, not the ultra-wealthy, as well as full support for a living wage for all full-time workers, etc... if only the world had heeded fully Leo XIII so many revolutions and wars, and so much inequality could have been avoided in the 20th century!). I don't have a party that I can support, with both the right and the left brimming with Cafeteria Catholics that pick and choose what they want like our faith is some sort of buffet while ignoring the teaching that don't fit their preconceived political molds. The mixing of politics and Catholicism when the entirety of the faith isn't followed very sadly seems to lead to ruin as 20th century history has borne out so very clearly.

My prayers are with you that you'll get the credit which is your due Emmett. Even with a wider audience, a message which is stripped away of so much which is fundamental to its understanding could cause more harm than good!

November 13, 2018, Tuesday


Italian Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, 77, former Papal Nuncio to the United States (2011-2016), today issued a brief statement addressed to the American bishops, currently meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.

Vigano called on the bishops to "not be afraid of standing up and doing the right thing for the victims" of sexual molestation and abuse.

Inside the Vatican obtained the statement directly from the archbishop. The text of the statement is posted on our website here.

Vigano's words come a day after the Vatican Congregation for Bishops on November 12 asked the US bishops not to vote during this November meeting on two action items to address the problem of sexual abuse, but rather to set the matter aside until a meeting in Rome in February of all the presidents of the bishops' conference of the entire world can take up the matter.

That request from Rome has been received with considerable surprise by the American bishops, according to press reports.

Here is the complete text of the archbishop's brief statement:
November 13, 2018 Tuesday

Dear Brothers Bishops in the US,

I am writing to remind you of the sacred mandate you were given on the day of your episcopal ordination: to lead the flock to Christ. Meditate on Proverbs 9:10: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom! Do not behave like frightened sheep, but as courageous shepherds. Do not be afraid of standing up and doing the right thing for the victims, for the faithful and for your own salvation. The Lord will render to every one of us according to our actions and omissions.

I am fasting and praying for you.

+Arch. Carlo Maria Viganò Your former Apostolic Nuncio

JMC said...

Edward Palamar, we must view with caution anything that attempts to pin a date on end-times events. I particularly differ with their estimate that the Three Days of Darkness will occur this December, when the prophecies I've read say that this event is apparently closer to the beginning of the year than the end.

Edward Palamar said...

Beginning of the Church Year, near Advent.

This discovery of just last year was foretold in previous apparitions of Blessed Mary, an eight day prior event : http://risen-from-the-dead.forumotion.com/t478-asteroid-on-solstice-december-21-2018-a-d

Bottom line, with or without the "Three Days of Darkness", December 29, 2018 A.D. is the 2,300th day of Daniel 8:14, and there is no further finite reckoning of the four-digit numbers in the Book (prophecy) of Daniel after that.

Britain’s biggest employer organisation and main trade union body have sounded the alarm over the prospect of British companies implanting staff with microchips to improve security.

UK firm BioTeq, which offers the implants to businesses and individuals, has already fitted 150 implants in the UK.

The tiny chips, implanted in the flesh between the thumb and forefinger, are similar to those for pets. They enable people to open their front door, access their office or start their car with a wave of their hand, and can also store medical data.

Napoleon dictatorship RETURNS: France sparks OUTRAGE as French chief calls for EMPIRE
FRANCE has further risked the wrath of Donald Trump after its finance minister called for the European Union to become an “empire” superstate to rival the United States and China.
By Joe Barnes, Brussels Correspondent
PUBLISHED: 06:06, Tue, Nov 13, 2018 | UPDATED: 08:14, Tue, Nov 13, 2018
Bruno Le Maire came out in support for French President Emmanuel Macron’s call for a “real European army” but suggested Brussels should go one further and establish itself as an “empire”. Mr Le Maire made the shock admission after the US President branded his French counterpart’s comments “very insulting” and suggested EU countries should instead focus on living up to their Nato spending commitments. "it's about Europe having to become a kind of Empire, as China is. And how the US is," the French finance minister told the Handelsblatt newspaper

JMC said...

Ecward: So Jesus Christ sent his angel in 1955 or thereabouts? Can you explain, please? What happened in 1955 that would equate to the coming of an angel of Christ?

Edward Palamar said...

Jesus said that the days are coming, and have already come, that the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of Man and come out of their graves.

Jesus bore witness that I was the angel sent to prepare His way, and I have come out of my tomb, for more than 63 years so far, and the Countdown / count up to the Day of the Lord puts my personal mission, kingship included, to an expected end.

But make no mistake about it, my coming out of the tomb began by once again (and for the third time) being a human fetus; I have come through three wombs via this preparation and I am here to stay.

JMC said...

Where does this passage come from? I've certainly never seen it in the Gospel. It seems to be suggesting that Our Lord went through three Incarnations. (?!)

Mark W said...

JMC - isn't Edward saying that he's been reincarnated 3 times? That's how I read it.

Emmett O'Regan said...

I don't mean this to be in any way uncharitable, but I think Edward needs prayers and to talk with a priest who specialises in dealing with mental health problems.

Jason R. said...

I can speak from some personal experience having bipolar ii disorder that this sounds like untreated religious mania and/or delusion.

Edward, please, you should seek psychistric treatment... as much as it "feels" real, you aren't an angel, or the reincarnations of Elijah, John the Baptist or anyone else, please believe and trust me on that, I'm not trying to trick or deceive you, I just want you to be safe and at peace.

JMC said...

I have some second-hand experience of such things myself. My mother had an undiagnosed mental illness, and part of it was characterized by a religious mania. The web site you pointed us to fuels such things. It does a good job of appealing to both Catholics and Protestants; it appeals to Protestants because it speaks of belief in the Rapture, which Catholics don't believe in; it appeals to Catholics because of its lip service to Our Lady.
.
As I said before, any religious literature that attempts to set any kind of date to end-times prophecies is to be regarded with deep caution at the very least; ideally, it should be completely avoided. Edward, please seek help. Right now these beliefs sound harmless, but many apparently benign mental disorders can progress to the point where you could become a danger to yourself and others. In all charity, I beg you to get help.

Jason R. said...

Jason R. said...

P.s...and I didn't post that to re-8gnite a pro-Pope Francis or con-Pope Francis debate, I'm just happy that efforts are being madd to highlight the ongoing dreadful persecutions of Christians around the world that is woefully underreported in much of the media.

Also, I'm going to re-doubke my efforts to remember when I post here St. Augustine's important maxim, "IN ESSENTIALS UNITY, IN NON-ESSENTIALS LIBERTY, IN ALL THINGS CHARITY" which I freely admit I've ignored often in the past here.

My sincere apologies to causing unnecessary discord often here Emmett... I'm not going to try to blame it on my mental illness, it's my own arrogance that does me in, as well as a much too easily wounded ego.

Particukar apologies to Chris and Mark (I reslly love and respect you guys, abd rveryone ekse that posts or lurks here, though it may not seem like it at times to my sgsme.

I resolve to do a better job of respecting points of view and perspectives that I don't share myself, I just wanted you to know that Emmett... in addition to your sharing of your incredible intellifence and a very IMO special gift of insight and understanding of prophecy , you've created such a wonderfully unique place for a real meeting of many different Carholic mindsets I guess you could call them, with a mutual respect for opposing viewpoints that is so often absent in online forums (including the Catholic blogosphere to be sure), and I'm so sorry for the times (quite often) I've disrespected that and you with my overly aggressive & combative attitude. I stand by my opinions, but my delivery is mostly terrible (I'd be remiss to not thank you again RC for teaching me a different attitude by way of your good example).. and I couldn't be more sincere about this. I feel real grief over my actions and terrible attitide and arrogance. I've shuttered all my social media accounts as a penance and to avoid the near occassions of sin. I hope for anyone I've offended or hurt that, please, maybe I can get another chance and we can hit a bit of a reset button? I really want to try to be better in how I express my opinion or thouhhts no matter the subject.

Thanks in advance as well for any forgiveness coming my way whether I've earned it or not, especially you Emmett for when I post here it's like being invited into your home, and I feel like I've tracked mud onto your floor (and probably will continue to until my next confession).

This probably isn't the most opportune time to ask for any prayers from all the folks here, but if I may, my daughter's last grandmother (in her 50s still), passed away yesterday morning. Brittany is taking it very hard, as is her mom (they are both driving from Edmonton, about a 12 hour drive, right now nos, on quite icy roads. I have many capital "P" Passionate priests and sisters praying and offering Mass for my girl's intentions for all of November, but I'd like also to ask anyone here to pray for the repose of her grandma (Shelley's) soul, and for an ease of that grief (my daughter had a suicide attempt when she lost her grandfather... I strongly suspect she suffers from chronic depression of a psychological sort, I'm pretty sure of it actually). Thank you to any I've mentioned who could intercede on my behalf for Brittany (and to lots of those I haven't, JMC, Bridget, etc).

Edward Palamar said...

JMC, you have absolutely nothing near to a second-hand, nor a first hand experience of what I've described as your diagnoses seek to be self-serving in the name of atheistic communism which has neither grasp of things spiritual nor physical.

Now if the eye be sound, however, such is not the case.

Rapture isn't purely a Protestant term, and even professed Catholics today fall short of being in good standing because of the mass apostasy of which St. Paul wrote and Jesus spoke.

Such apostasy as foretold in the Fatima apparitions more than one hundred years ago is now rife, though in keeping with Jesus' assurance about what He is planning to do, we are granted some knowledge of an expected end as foretold in Paul VI's Dei Verbum.

This 63+ year mission could not be reliably trusted to anyone other than the resurrected prophet of the Most High, aka the sign of the Son of Man in Heaven.

Much like in the movie "Taken" where Liam points out that an old friend has gotten rusty, so is the inuring effect of the mass apostasy; that is why the prophecies regarding the Three Days of Darkness are always stressing to pray through the final trial to the very end, and such is your necessity, too, even as regards your calumnious use of "lip service".

The Book of Daniel wasn't sealed so ignorant, mocking parrots of Satan such as yourself could have their way about it, but that at the appointed time it could be interpreted to its glorious end.

JMC : you are not my doctor, never have been my doctor, and given your written apostasy thus far, will never be my doctor.

Mark W said...

Hey Jason,

First off, you owe me absolutely no apologies of any kind. " I feel real grief over my actions and terrible attitide and arrogance." If you're afflicted with a terrible arrogance, then you're the most kind hearted arrogant person I've ever encountered on the internet. No worries there.

And if you don't mind, I'm going to move our conversation from the other thread here, if for no other reason than it will be easier to find.

So, my apologies to you. I wrote my previous answer to you in a hurry, and I was clearly way too aggressive myself and I didn't explain things well enough. So, if you'll allow me, I'll answer some of what you wrote here.

"Mark, if you don't believe in the scientific efficacy of statistical analysis..." It's not the scientific efficacy of statistics that I question, it's the honesty of the pollsters. But specific to your point, part of my job is data analytics. I don't have the math to do much of the heavy lifting, but I do know how to calculate things like sigma (6 sigma, 5 sigma, etc.), and standard deviation. In fact, I was the first person in my current position to use standard deviation as a KPI, and I had to explain its use to the finance manager. I'm also a certified Six Sigma Blackbelt. That's more to do with the analytics relative to the math, but it does give you some exposure to the arithmetic.

A very wise man, and friend, once gave me a line about statistics that I have taken to heart ever since I first heard it.He was my mentor in the business world, and a genuine old-world gentleman. Alas, he passed away a few years ago (May God Almighty have mercy on his everlasting soul). But what he told me was this: Statistics are like a bikini bathing suit. What they reveal can be absolutely fascinating, but what they hide is absolutely critical.

As to the left/right violence thing, there are extremists on both sides. But think about this: The right is going to train because that's what they've been trained to do. Many are veterans. They trained in the military, so they train in civilian life. I trained in the US military, and I have that same mindset today. My focus is radically different, in that my role in the service was search and rescue and saving lives. As a result, I am a storm spotter and a radio communications specialist, well trained in and out of the military, and I train to maintain my radio equipment and make sure I can use it in a variety of electricity-free environments. I train like this in case it's needed someday, though hopefully it never will be. The people you see training in the woods are very likely of the same mindset - hopeful that it will never be used, but prepared to use their particular skills should they need them.

Gotta run, Mark

Why Catholics Should not Receive Communion in the Hand - Part 2

Jason R. said...

Thank you Chris and Mark for holding no hard feelings, that is a big relief to me!

And thanks for your patience in explaining the militia thing to me (and I feel pretty dumb lecturing someone with your experience on statistics now, *blushing*)... if the fear of left-wing violence is overblown in that poll that's actually a comfort to me.

Without some more background info I think the reason those militias scared me is because I was wrongly equating them with the type of paramilitaries like in Lebanon or Central America in the 70s or 80s... but I see now with how you explained it is more like adult scouting, just wisely being prepared for any contingency (like an economic or societal collapse, both of which would not surprised me at all), which I totally get. It reminds me now that I get it of the Cristeros in Mexico or the Carlists in worn-torn Spain, both situations where clergy were slaughtered like animals. The truth of the Spanish Civil War is one of the great historical white-washes of history, and I bet there were many more Catholics besides the Carlists that they were better prepared for the communist/syndo-anarchist plan to kill anyone they saw as an enemy (including over a dozen archbishops, thousands of clergy, etc.).

Not being American a lot of little subtleties get missed by me, so I really do appreciate your patience in helping me "get it". And after more reflection it is really impossible to deny that the tens of millions of pure snd innocent lives lost to abortion in the US, and straight up Gosnell-style infanticide, aren't rightly classified as left-wing violence on a genocidal scale (though I do know a lot of small "d" social democrats, including politicians, who are very much and very publically opposed to abortion in the strongest terms, as well as a lot of small "c" conservatives who are rabidly pro-choice/pro-abortion, so it's not entirely so cut-and-dry in all cases).

Further to thd militia thing, I love heading up north almost to the NWT (and when my pre-middle-age spine could handle the drive, even past the arctic circle once in a blue moon), just me and my fellow fisherman against the eiememts... arctic/high mountain camping (like around Jasper AB) is challenging but also very rewarding, and the harshness of the elements was a big part of the draw for me... do I think I get the militia stuff now... like, I don't know if the three days of darkness is metaphorical, or even true... but I sure am going to always have blessed bees wax candles in my home, a big drum full of water in my garage with iodine pills so it doesn't get stagnant, 90 boxes of instant mac and cheese, and a cord of wood!

I just hope none of those grouos would use force to try to subvert democratic institutions and such (though the older I get the more I feel like maybe absolute monarchies with Christian monarchs like Blessed Charles of Austria as an e.g., maybe that wasn't such a bad form of government after all!).

RC said...

Jason,
Eternal rest grant unto her o Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her.

Il pray to Our Lady of Sorrows for your little girl my friend,who better knows our grief than Our Blessed Mother under that most powerful of titles.Will also pray to St Dymphna to keep a watchful eye over her, and too St Anne of course.
God bless mo chara

Jason R. said...

Thanks so much RC, I so, so appreciate it. She (Britt's Grandms Shelley) was a good woman woth a good heart in her last years and suffered so much with COPD, but she used to run with the Hells Angels and lived not the best life for a lot of it, and wasn't a brliever in Christ, so without judging (as a recovering heroin addict I can *never* throw stones at anyone even should I want to, I wss the lowest of the low and the worst of sinners for a very large chuck of my life)... so I am a bit fretful over her eternal destination.

Any prayers asking Our Lady of Sorrows to even bring Shelley out of Purgatory if needed would mean so much, as soon as Our Father wills it, and of course for my girl whose sadness just never seems to leave her.

Just as an aside, the cyber-friend of mine who has the Passionates praying for Britt was frustrated because the admin assistant sent him the completely wrong card than what he was supposed to receive... so guess what card I got *completely* randomly and accidentally instead from their office? Our Lady of Sorrows!! Sometimes I get the feeling someone is trying to tell me something ;)

Since you introduced me to the devotion RC I've had a couple of signal graces like this telling me Our Lady of Sorrows has got my back amd is watching over me and mine. She has got me going to daily Mass when I'm physically able, or watching it on YouTube at least when I can't, going to confession regularly (I get the feeling more thsn my parish priest would prefer, haha, praying thd Rosary more often, trying to get in the habit still of praying it daily, along with the Divine Mercy Chaplet, so many amazing gifts that no longer seem burdenous or like "work", I crave prayer now, I crave the Eucharist, like I used to crave opiates.

I really need to develop more of a devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows, I have her literally staring me in the fsce from this card, I d9nt know how mucb more plainky she could ask for this from me!

One neat thing with the YouTube Daily Mass, I was very happily surprised to find it is shown from a chapel at Loretto Abbey in Toronto where my mom was a postulate for a few years in the early 60s, I visited there with my family a couple of times when we were in TO in my 20s (one thing though, it is sad to see all the incredible statues they had in that chapel when I visited there in the early 90s are all gone now. I remember vividly one statue of Jesus during His passion where the sculptor pulled out his own finger and toe nails to use in the statue... they had a lot of art treasures from Paris, Rheims, etc., that were hurriedly smuggled out to Quebec to escape destruction during the French Revolution... I sure hope they are all not just stuck in storage somewhere now. I remember a really amazing much larger than life statue of St. Michael that made a big impression on me, I think I still have an old snap shot of it in an album somewhere... i am definitely in babble mode now, so I'll leave it at, again, RC, thank you so much for your prayers.

Mark W said...

I'll try to swing by church for a few minutes tomorrow and light a candle for her. My condolences on your loss, and I'll certainly add a prayer for her tonight.

Jason R. said...

The 3rd Secret & Malachi Martin: Fr Gruner, John Vennari discuss Fr Martin's Radio Interviews

Fr. Nicholas Gruner and John Vennari, the Editor of Catholic Family News, discuss the Radio Interviews of Fr. Malachi Martin speaking about the 3rd Secret of Fatima.

chris said...


https://garabandalnews.org/2018/01/28/the-pope-of-the-fatima-3rd-secret/

Jacinta’s Vision of the Holy Father
Insulted and Persecuted

Taken from “The Third Secret” by Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité

«One day, (Lucy says) we spent our siesta down by my parents’ well. Jacinta sat on the stone slabs on top of the well. Francisco and I climbed up a steep bank in search of wild honey among the brambles in a nearby thicket.

«After a little while, Jacinta called out to me: “Didn’t you see the Holy Father?” “No.” “I don’t know how it happened, but I saw the Holy Father in a very big house, kneeling by a table, with his head buried in his hands, and he was weeping. Outside the house, there were many people. Some of them were throwing stones, others were cursing him and using bad language. Poor Holy Father, we must pray very much for him.”

JMC said...

I just listened to that broadcast, and one thing struck me. At one point, they were discussing the fact that someone asked Fr. Malachi Martin if a certain prophecy was the Third Secret. He said it contained elements of the Secret, but that the Secret itself was much worse. The prophecy in question mentioned that in the second half of the 20th century, two notable things would occur: another great war, and a disaster that would wipe out millions every minute. The second half of the 20th century was marked by hundreds of smaller local skirmishes, the most notable of which was the Viet Nam War, and later the acts of terrorism which eventually led to our current impasse with Islam. The backdrop of almost all of this, until 1989, was the Cold War. Yet none of this, to my eye, at least, seems to equate to a "great war." As for the second prediction, millions dying every minute, if you take that as not a physical death, but a spiritual death - that is, the common metaphor for eternal damnation - the first prediction becomes not a physical war as we know it, but a culture war. In the 1960s, millions bought into the lies of the pacifist movement and the Sexual Revolution. Christianity insisted these things, particularly the latter, were gravely evil, and so they tossed their Christianity out the window. Millions condemned themselves to hell, and the culture war is still going on.
.
My conclusion here only touches two aspects of the prediction discussed by Fr. Gruner in that program. There are other elements, as well, which have nothing to do with my conclusions; I only focused on those two aspects just now, because that is the thought which occurred to me as I was listening. There are certainly still actual physical chastisements to come, if mankind does not repent, and there are no signs that that is going to happen anytime soon. Certainly small pockets of us are attempting to do so, to repent for our own sins and to make reparation for those of others, but as things stand right now, it's not enough by far.
.
Our Lady told us that only Our Lady of the Rosary can help us now; we must pray the Rosary daily. This is a sure-fire method to ensure salvation, so of course Satan is going to attack it. Here's food for thought: It was a common practice in the past to wear a Rosary as a necklace, or otherwise visibly on your person, as a way to promote the devotion. In recent years, however, that practice has fallen under suspicion in secular eyes, because one street gang has taken to wearing rosary beads as their emblem. In American public schools, dress codes are very lax compared to those in other countries; students can wear pretty much whatever they want, with just a few restrictions. (The extent of those restrictions varies by school district.) One of those restrictions is that no gang emblems are allowed. Because a street gang has adopted rosary beads as their emblem, a student cannot wear rosary beads, so there's one method of promoting the Rosary that has been blocked. Another is the fact that most workplaces these days prohibit employees from displaying any religious articles either on their persons or at their workstations.
.
We are in the midst of the Great Apostasy, there's no question about that. As I said in a comment elsewhere, not all of us are called to do the great deeds that catch people's attention and make them think. For the rest of us, we have the great gift of St. Therese's Little Way. Making reparation, I think, may just be the most important aspect of that Little Way right now.
.
God bless.

Jason R. said...

Thank you for that good suggestion Chris, but my daughter currently doesn't attend Mass or receive any sacraments regularly, so I don't think her mind would be open to reading the Diary of Sr. St. Faustina. That being written though, I've never read the diary myself so that would maybe be a good start.

JMC, I think your message, especially the last paragraph, really is the roadmap for the most any of us can do with our own hands, personal reparation and praying the Rosary daily (and if one of the visionaries at Kibeho was genuine in the message he passed, the Seven Sorrows Chaplet everyday as well).

I brought this up before but didn't really get any response, but I have a lot of hope around this, and maybe even that it will be the spark that re-evangelizes England, and from them, to the rest of the world as has been foreseen by Catholic visionaries and saints... the tie to the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima isn't explicit, but it feels not to be wholly unrelated:

http://dowrytour.org.uk/

JMC said...

Jason, if it feels "not...wholly unrelated," that's because they're all intertwined. All those messages and visions came from the same source, so of course they're going to be consistent! ;D
.
AS for the efficacy of the Rosary, I had that proved to me when I was still a small child. Our family did not pray the Rosary on a regular basis, except when my mother had a special intention. Before I even made my First Communion, I had noticed that those were the most peaceful times my highly dysfunctional family ever knew. Even before I was taught in school about the miracles connected with the Rosary, I had identified it as THE number one most important devotion. (That was back when they still taught schoolchildren about Fatima and other Marian apparitions).
.
I'm not as consistent about saying the Rosary daily as I was back then, though I do manage to get at least a decade in. And the simple act of promoting it to others has its own set of graces attached. So I rarely miss a chance to do so, because, while my own habits have become lax, I still firmly believe in its power.
.
God bless.

Early humans used bartering in lieu of money to buy goods, be it cattle or sheep, vegetables and grain. But today, one might be hard-pressed to use physical currency at all. Economists estimate that only eight per cent of the world’s money exists in the form of tangible coins and notes. The rest is floating in the digital ether.

India removed all large denomination notes from circulation last year and is exploring the idea of fiat digital currency.

The European Central Bank also ended production and issuance of €500 banknotes a year prior.

the revived Roman empire is gaining strength in front of our eyes.

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/europe/macron-urges-greater-european-integration-in-address-to-bundestag-1.3702249

n his Bundestag debut on Sunday, French president Emmanuel Macron warned Europe – and his German host – that “chaos” looms unless the continent – pushed on by Berlin and Paris – can shatter taboos and agree further integration steps.

A week after Chancellor Angela Merkel joined him for the first World War centenary in France, the French leader was the guest of honour at Germany’s own remembrance Sunday ceremonies.

Just as the last seven decades of European peace derived from France and Germany ending their centuries of mutual suspicion, Europe’s future depended on the two nations working together to prevent Europe becoming a “plaything of great powers”. It was an ill-disguised challenge to his Berlin audience to respond to his 14-month-old European Union reform proposals.

Thanks for the support Chris... knowing that gives me hope because Ive been fasting fsirky reguksrky (I've lost a bit over 30 pounds since thr Spring) for the intentions of thd holy and persscuted people of the world, and now that you brought that up, I'll add Britt's intentions and my hope for her full conversion to my fast intentions.

I found the timing of this interesting; the subtext here was clearky to raise the alarm of tbe imoending famie in Yemen (where up to 11 million people are expected to starve to death with the Saudi coalition not ketting relief supplies into Yemen's interior, something probably all of us should be writing our government representatives about, but I'm off on a tangent).

The Pope could have used an example more in the public memory still (or ever) such as Ethopia and the massive relief effort that developed there, so the worthy mentioning of the engineered genocide by Stalinist Russia of Ukrainians is also a more explicit message and even possible commentary that seem to very much coincide with Russia trying its best to provoke a full-blown non-covert war and subsequent invasion of Ukraine...

I'm convinced this is an area we all should be watching as a very possible flashpoint to a huge, huge conflict, possibly the 3rd World War that the last two Popes have directly alluded to when commemting on events in the Middle East starrting with the US invasion of Iraq, and where major hostilities have yet to cease. If eirher a Sunni or a Shia super-state emerges (ot will likely in my kind be a Sunni-superstate led or either as a major federation between Turkey, Saudi Arsbia and the Gulf States, and Egypt), one powerful enough to invade Europe with Russian and/or Chinese logistical assistance... its playing out just as a lot of Saints envisioned or prophecied):

Pope Francis recalls the ‘Holodomor’ genocide inflicted upon Ukraine by the Soviet Union in the early 1930’s, and prays that such horrors never happen again.... Read all:

Yes! I listened to Art Bell regularly back in thd day (I fortuitously worked the graveyard shift at a convenience store at the time), but caught that as well after re-listening to all the old interviews you linked.

Also, allegedky but backed up by fairly credible sources, Sr. Lucia when asked how the conversion of Ryssia would take place, which she unequivocably replued through the Eastern (aka Oriental) Rite, of which Ukrainian Eastern Rite Catholics are by far the largest contingent. With the big shake-up in the Orthodox world going on now (as well as Putin's plummeting poll numbers encouraging more military adventurism), perhaps Ukrainusn Catholicusm will spread throughout Ukraine and on to Moscow somehow? It's I think noteworthy that the Patriarchy of Kyiv is being given independence from the Russian Orthodox since that's specifically the city Fr. Martin mentioned. And to any that think Russian Orthodox = coversion, at the time of the visions at Fatima Russia was Russuan Orthodox at the time so nothing other than a conversion to Catholicsm makes much sense, besides thinking that when speaking of conversion Our Lady talking in half-measures just intuitively even feels not right... unity means unity under the visible vicar of Our Lord and head of the Church here on Earth IMO.

I used to be a lot more skeptical about what Fr. Martin had to say and listened more out of curiosity of the sensational, but with hindsight we see a lot of what he said was going to happen proving to be extremely prescient.

Maybe not such a bad idea; helping to build local economies not dependent on the drug trade could be viewed as an investment in the future and a good way to stabilize asylum claimants; if even a fraction of thd money America spent on keeping Central America from falling to communusm during the Cold War could make a big difference on the ground. Nation-states utterly falling into complete lawlessness on the magnitude of Somalia, and the inevitable destabilization, displacememt, and overall choas that comes with that so close to Americas borders is going to get worse, and aid to Mexico in the form of freer trade has arguably kept it from falling into "failed state" status and dramatically lowered illegal immigration. I know here in Canada already some places in Central America have I think benefit from favourable trade rukes (when I was still working I noticed all the circuit boards I'd repair/replace were all manufactured in Guatemala.

The original Marshall Plan, despite a lot of domestic opposition (e.g. Sen. McCarthy accusing General Marshal of having communust leanings), was ultimately a wild success: it stopped the spread of communism in post-War Europe, stemmed the tide of displaced persons seeking refuge, and kept tens of millions (including my dad and his family) from starving to death those first Winters after it was introduced, and America received back a huge dividend in the new markets and non-existent economies it helped re-build and open up for buying American exports. Along with the material benefit, spiritually it could help with implementing the social teachings of Pope Leo XIII which have been reiterated and expounded on by every Pope since then. Just a good think-piece overall, something worthy of at keast considering:

Where did Malachi Martin say these things about Ukraine? Was it on one of the Art Bell shows?

Anonymous said...

I would be *really* interested if anyone had any more information regarding Ukraine, Russia and the conversion of the East. I've seriously considering converting to Eastern Rite and have a vested interest in this topic. I have no doubts that this Moscow/Kiev/EP fight will end up, in hindsight, playing a bigger role in things than we see it right now.

If anyone has any further information, any at all (even speculation - Emmett, could you touch on the East in Catholic prophecy, if there's anything other than from Fatima?), I would lap it up and appreciate it greatly!

Thank you.

Jason R. said...

Mark, it was in one of the YouTube vids Chris posted a link to, but I can't remember which, but it was an interview format (I'm not sure it was on Coast to Coast or another show). In the same breath he mentioned Kyiv as playing a critical role to the conversion of Russia he also eluded to a new form of energy also being involved (EMP perhaps??).

Chris, if you know the right link would you mind reposting thst interview?

Who woukd have thought back then when Russia was respecting the treaty that guaranteed Ukrainian territory (the UK and US akso were signatories to guarantee Ukrainian territorial rights, which they haven't exactky stepped up to enforce) in exchange for Kyiv giving up 5,000+ nuclear weapons (the third biggest global arsenal of them) that Crimea and Eastern most Ukraine would just be snatched. Either Fr. Martin was one heck of a guesser or his testimony should maybe not be over-looked with too critical an eye.

Benedict's resignation predicted by Wednesday, April 15, 2009
St. Malachy and Fr. René Thibaut

"But of this one thing be not ignorant, my beloved, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." 2 Peter 3:8

"But of that day and hour no one knoweth, not the angels of heaven, but the Father alone." Matthew 24:26

After I shared some reflections about the famous “Prophecy of St Malachy” a month or so ago (see The Prophecies of St. Malachy, Part 1 and Part 2) a reader sent me a book entitled La Mystérieuse prophétie des papes by Fr. René Thibaut, S.J. (Namur: Bibliothèque de la Faculté de philosophie et lettres,1951, Imprimatur: June 28, 1945, Et. Jos. Carton de Wiart) Fr. Thibaut (1883-1952) was a Belgian Jesuit and scholar who made a study of the list of popes attributed to St. Malachy. Fr. Thibaut’s research reveals that there is a great deal more to the Prophecy than I had ever imagined. It is a penetrating treatise which, because of the author’s vast knowledge of Church history and Sacred Scripture, both informs and inspires. The middle of the book is devoted to charts tracing the date of Easter over the years, and the leap years, as well as various ciphers, anagrams and acrostics with which, as Fr. Thibaut demonstrates, the list of Popes is imbued. Fr. Thibaut’s analysis becomes complex at that point although he explains his conclusions with clarity.

26 Nov 2018 – Today’s lack of sunspots, characteristic of a solar minimum, could bring record low temperatures, but some experts suggest it could even produce a “mini ice age,” warns this article on mateoweb.eu.

“Something unusual, but perhaps not so unusual on a large scale, is happening to our sun.

“We are currently living in the 24th solar cycle recorded. What is believed to cause a mini ice age is a prolonged solar minimum, ie an extended period of time when the sun does not have sunspots.

“The last time a prolonged solar minimum was recorded, a mini ice age really occurred and was called Minimo di Maunder. This period lasted from 1645 to about 1715. In these 70 years, sunspots became extremely rare.

It should be noted that Muhammed said Allah promused that Islam would conquer Rome one day as evidenced in several hadiths (and almost did if not for the near miraculous Battle of Lepanto); just as they conquered Jerusalem and Constantinople, Rome is the 3rd of the great religious cities that it is an articke of faith for Muslims for Rome to fall under Islamic rule, it's far from an idle threat.

Which makes either Iran or Saudi Arabia getting nuclear weapons, or even Turkey or Egypt for that matter, a very unnerving prospect.

If there comes an all-out Islsmic "civil war" across the Middle East does happen someday, and it looks like it already may have started, whichever side is left standing and msy create z new nation state from the Mediterranean shore to Iran, and perhaps even into some former Soviet Republics in the Caucasus and Central Asia, I think they woukd not waste much time in a nuclear attack and military invasion of Europe as a means to capture Rome as Islam's founder decreed. This makes sense even ignoring all the Catholic prophecy that relates a similar scenario. And as the switch to renewable energy continues and the price of oil is deflated by that, the pressure as far as a time to strike sooner rather than later would be enormous.

Fatima's Ongoing Spiritual Warfare - Suzanne Pearson

Published on Nov 29, 2018

JMC said...

About those sunspots: It was about ten or fifteen years ago when I first read an article that debunked the idea of anthropogenic global warming, proving that it was tied to sunspot activity instead, citing that early meteorological records showed worldwide cooling periods during times of low sunspot activity, and warming occurring during periods of increased sunspot activity. Global warming and cooling occurs in fairly regular cycles, each lasting twenty-five to fifty years. For as long as there have been records, it is clear that periods of warming and cooling coincide exactly with periods of high and low solar activity, respectively. So this news is not surprising at all. I don't know about a mini ice age, but temperatures are certainly dropping to record lows this year. And the proponents of the anthropogenic global warming theory are still beating that drum.
.
On another subject altogether, I was reading an article over at Crisis Magazine this morning, speaking of the phenomenon that is Chancellor Kurtz of Austria, standing as a conservative, giving the liberal leaders of the EU fits. He's the youngest national leader in the world, at the age of thirty-two. The whole article put me in mind of the Great Monarch, and I couldn't help wondering if we aren't actually seeing the beginning of his rise. Thoughts?

chris said...

JMC

There is documentation showing carbon increases FOLLOWING sunspot activity or lack of. also look up the saturation limits of carbon.... in any chemical site and you will see it limits the allegations.

it is all FAKE NEWS to get the UN power.

Jason R. said...

JMC, given that the Austo-Hungarian Empire (and by extension modern Austria) were the sucessors of ths Holy Roman Empire, I think you're barking up the correct tree.

I've leaned toward the Great Monarch being a descendent if not the direct inheritor of the crown from Blessed Charles as head of the House of Hapsburg, the last Emperor deposed after the First World War, but there is such an abundance of every-day people with royal blood in Europe now I never consodered a politivian like Chancellor Kurtz, I'm going to be followong him in the news from now on.

I've also taken for granted almost that the Great Monarch would be completely unknown until the wildly sneak attack by Russia and a pan-Islamic army (across the great Northern European Plain as well as up from Turkey through the Balkans), I think coincidence with the lateral collaose on La Palma as Emmett has laid out in his book, but I guess there's nothing to say he would be well known before-hand (which opens up so many potential candidates, like Prince William or even Macron?).

Thanjs for the info JMC!

Heaven’s Messages Foretold the Current Crisis & Scandal in the Church
by Ted Flynn | November 29, 2018

Below is a general synopsis of just a few of the major mystics and apparition sites (albeit significant) heaven has used to send messages to mankind. In pulling together the material for this article, several things became crystal clear. First, heaven uses imagery, metaphor, simile, analogy, and parables much in the same way Jesus did in Scripture to make a point. Secondly, the material heaven is presenting leaves little doubt on the outcome of the Church in particular, and the world in general. Third, many changes have occurred in the last one hundred years, and they will now happen more rapidly. Events largely to an interconnected world, will see a quickening. Fourth, The Deep State spoken of in the press is Freemasonry. It is insidious, hidden, and the work of Satan, which is why in the teaching of the Magisterium for hundreds of years, it has been consistently forbidden. Dozens of edicts, instructions, papal bulls, and encyclicals mention it as an enemy of the Church. It is the malevolent force behind the curtain wrapped in stealth and deception

Sanhedrin Invites 70 Nations to Hanukkah Dedication of Altar for the Third Temple

When I see something like this, a true societal impasse where neither side is going to be moved from their fundamentally opposing positions, I recall right away the private revalations which dpoke of the start of the time of great revolutions (to accompany the war that leads to the appearance of the Great Monarch and Holy Pontiff) having their beginnings in France.

Since even the end of The War, look how many new republics have been proclaimed in France, as well as a very close call on a military coup under DeGaulle's re-emergence and his reneging on campaign promises to the Pied Noires of Algeria... Paris had been shut down with several regiments of pro-Coup paratroopers circling Paris in Dakotas, just waiting for the word to jump, capture, and replace the National Assembly, imposing permanent martial law aka a full-on police state; it was that close. In the course of time I believe this time a nee revolution will be from the poverty-stricken and lower working class in France who have been ignored for too long, unfortunately, at a time, too, as salt rubbed in the wounds, when many French citizens have never lived in such wildly out-of-control, worshipping wealth above God as a new golden calf, pure idolatry, I fear... increasingly to me it feels like we're starting to witness end-times prophecies, really starting with the two towers of smoke and fire from the book of Joel, though Emmett's starting point of the earlier casting down of Satan from Heaven by St. Michael really was the beginning of the more immediate countdown to the end of time, that it is starting starting to play out in the daily headlines with a huge economic crash coming with none of the usual monetary and fiscal tools available to combat it (interest rates are still near rock bottom, also insidiously creating huge bubble economies in every single national economic sector, and the HUGE national deficit created by those huge tax cuts for the very wealthiest Americans, leaving the Federal government with no wiggle-room for even a temporary fiscal boost even in a financial crisis... this budget wholly owned by a single political party has moved into teenager-with-their-first-credit-card territory).

One line that really stood out in the above article to me is : "Graffiti read: “Babylon is burning.”".

The conditions are so reminiscent of the Bolsheviks, thd Blackshirts in Italy, all the factions that led to the French Revolution, the Sturmabteilung and Communists both in Germany, the young Maoist fanatics of the Cultural Revolution in China, all the fundamentals seem to be the same.

Further to France, the lower middle-class that has been increasingly feeling like they are being pyshed into poverty, which they are, similar to the predominantly white working class that a generation ago had good union jobs, with great pay and great benefits, now living on what room they have left on their sources of credit month-to-month (and no, the jobs didn't flee overseas, robots are doing those jobs now, another problem that will get much worse very soon e.g. imagine a whole nation of semitruck drivers all instantly out of work at the sane time, going the way of buggy whip msnufactirers... that day isn't that far away wothout some sort of government intervention on behalf and for the necessary benefit of the citizens of the countries that will be effected by AI/automation, but they're all too busy trying to dismantle the last vestiges of the New Deal instead of enhancing and modernizing it like they should be out of pure self-interest if they don't want a potential revolution to contend with, and when so many have lost touch with the faith of their fathers and where they come from traditions-wise, they won't be nearly as docile as the 1/4 of Americans with no income at all at the worst stages of the Great Depression because there is so littke respect for civil authorithy anymore. Likewise the modern new robber-barons, huge incredibly wealthy and powerful monopolies running out of Silicon Valkey like Amazon and Facebook that wield tremendous power and influence, with studies showing that Facebook and other social media apps are changing the way our brains actually process objective truth, scary stuff!, but with no regulations or social consciences.

And all this when GDP is still expanding and corporate profits continue to break records every year... what will befall Americans when a major recession or depression hits in the next cyclical downturn in the business cycle? It will be pure chaos, maybe accompanying the great deluge of the East Coast, or maybe prior to that.

It reminds me of FDR, and how especially despised he was among the old-money families of America that ruled the GOP at the time, as a traitor to his class. What hardly any of them ever came to realize was that the conditions on Mainstreet America were such that the only alternative to the New Deal was a full-blown and widesoread Communist insurgency with vast popular support. It's not anywhere close to that right now in America, but the next economic downturn, watch out, this superheated economy is going to crash *hard*, because again there is no , maybe hard enough for the world to abandon the dollar as the standard reserve currency, and then all bets are off, anything could happen, including revolutionary government take-overs either from the extreme left or the extreme right (but usually the armed forces are the ultimate decider, and they tend to swing right, but not always).

The only slightly hidden fragility of Liberal Democracy as viabke political systems is being exposed more and more barely, showing how the Freemasonic ideals for an attempted perfection of society that exist officially devoid of God except as some far-away impersonal deity are doomed to failure by design, that being their primary purpose even perhaps?

A pope under the control of Satan" is explicitly mentioned in the real Third Secret of Fatima prophecy. This has been leaked by numerous high-ranking Vatican clerics and advisors to Popes. This prophecy has tremendous implications and ramifications which this Third Secret documentary will explore and expound fully: ramifications that does and will affect everyone. To my knowledge, this is the first documentary to explore this line of the prophecy. Don’t want to watch the whole video? Click on the timestamps below to jump to whatever section you want to watch. What’s in this video: Suzanne Pearson talks about how the Third Secret details how Satan will gain power in the highest echelons of the Church (01:55). She describes how Cardinal Bea exclaimed (after reading it and discovering the Pope won’t act on it): “We just killed a billion people!” (15:00) Bishop Williamson about Freemasonry and why many priests join them (5:14). About how Satan will try to own a Pope (13:32). Fr. Malachi Martin on the enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican and how he knows the Devil wants to possess a Pope (14:03). Fr. Kramer testifies that Malachi Martin told him that the Third Secret foretells something far worse than an apostate anti-Pope (12:30). Fr. Gruner gives more details about the coming chastisements (19:20). He explains that if the Secret was released, it “would stop the changes of Vatican II in its tracks: immediately”. A news clip about the recent lightning strike on the Vatican (23:13). Fr. Hesse explains that one of the lines of the La Salette prophecies has been censured universally which foretells that in our times there will be “two worm-ridden Popes” (24:06). Fr. Kramer relates how in the Third Secret, Our Lady speaks badly about several Popes, comparing them to animals: a serpent, a chameleon, etc. (32:20) He talks about how John XXIII and John Paul II had the phrase about the Pope being under the control of Satan translated by multiple experts to verify the phrase foretelling this is translated correctly. It is correct. Fr. Hesse explains why and how it is possible to have bad Popes even though the doctrine of the indefectibility of the Catholic Church is true (36:54). The “advisors” around the Popes are discussed (51:49): among other things, Malachi Martin describes how an eyewitness reported that in the entourage surrounding the Pope “the hate [of the Pope] was palpable” (53:38). Malachi Martin describes how in exorcisms, the demons frequently taunt the exorcists that they are in St. Peter’s and in the Pope’s advisors (59:45). Fr. Hesse talks about the Freemasonic and KGB agents in the Vatican and Hierarchy (01:01:08, 01:06:04). Michael Voris and Louis Verrechio talk about the diabolical disorientation of the Hierarchy foretold by Sr. Lucy of Fatima (01:03:55). Fr. Gruner talks about the scandals of the recent October Synods (01:07:49). Malachi Martin insights (01:09:22). He explains why the power of the Pope is the #1 fear of the enemies of the Church and their plan on how to seemingly make the power of the papacy go away (01:11:58).

There is a clip where Fr. Malachi Martin discusses how Russia and Kiev are part of the final solution to the world problems we are in (02:02:02). There is a stirring exposition of the large amount of prophecies about the coming Great Catholic Monarch who will restore the world to a Catholic World Order following the impending chastisements (02:04:49). Fr. Isaac Reylea (son of a spiritual daughter of St. Padre Pio) talks about the prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success and the coming angelic Pop

I post this because I must. I have, as probably most of you reading this, have been interested in and reading about prophecy for a long time.
this site presents a wonderfully thought out presentation of Catholic eschatology.
In pursuit of this subject, we have all pursued tangents of the subject. one of mine has been Nostradamus. I have read him confused as most. however the past few years some decoders have deciphered some interpretations which can be considered cogent if you think it possible down this rabbit hole.
the announcement of admiral Stearney's suicide and military equipment being sent to Ukraine from Poland plus the warning of new advanced camouflaging of Iranian warships are directly from the pages of the man. If so, I must tell you that it is also a warning of a world-changing event in 2019 probably before summer between the USA and Russia. I am mostly in error in my attempts to understand things but these are billboard size and clear if he is correct.
I am moved to put on the ash cloth and ask any who read this to say a prayer or include me in your plea's to Mary.
I thank you.

Arkady SAVITSKY | 04.12.2018 | SECURITY / WAR AND CONFLICT
Encouraged by US, Ukraine Prepares to Stage Military Provocation

There is a cause for concern and it’s real and very grave. Ukraine is being pushed to war. Kiev is not bluffing. Encouraged by its American tutors, it’s involved in dangerous games pursuing political purposes. It’s not about sanctions, warnings, statements and declarations - they want to provoke real shooting now. The time is right for ringing alarm bells before it’s too late.

The US President Donald Trump’s refusal to have a separate meeting with President Putin at the G20 summit in Argentina citing the Kerch Strait incident as a reason was not exactly unexpected. Obviously, Washington is interested in aggravating the Russian-Ukrainian relations. The introduction of the state of emergency in the territories bordering Russia, the concentration of Ukrainian troops in the Donbas region, and the call-up of reservists announced by Ukraine’s president – all these moves testify to the fact that war preparations are in full swing. Neither Washington nor Brussels have called on Kiev to show restraint

Overdramatic, for certain, but Fr. Malachi Martin's remarks about the several ways one can be controlled by the devil do clarify a great deal. In fact, given that one can be controlled by the devil if he is surrounded by those who serve Satan, that explains how a pope can be controlled by him without violating the indefectibility of the Church...in fact, it's what I've been saying all along. So it may be that Bergoglio is not at fault with all these weird things going on; he could be just a puppet. There's a theory that, if enough people make the Five First Saturdays, then God will give him the grace to throw off the chains of his puppet-masters and do the consecration of Russia in the manner Our Lady Requested. One of things Our Lady told Sr. Lucia was that she was sad because people were not heeding her requests; specifically, not enough of the good were doing as she had asked of the laity. Daily Rosaries, and the Five First Saturdays.

Priest who Translated the New Mass Publicly REPENTS!

Fr. Stephen Somerville is a priest who, for over ten years, collaborated in the official work of translating the new post-Vatican II Latin liturgy into the English language, when he was a member of the Advisory Board of the International Commission on English Liturgy (ICEL). In this audio you will hear him publicly apologize before God and the Church renouncing this evil he took part in. You can read the entire letter at this website:

JMC said...

I was reviewing some of the prophecies regarding the three days of darkness, and something just struck me. All of them say that the night before will be very cold and windy, even Padre Pio, who lived into the 20th century. Now is that supposed to be true over the whole world, like the darkness and attendant events? If so...well, it's summer in the Southern Hemisphere when it's winter in the Northern, so any night on which it's bitterly cold in both hemispheres at the same time should be a HUGE red flag!

Mark W said...

JMC - There's a catch. So far as anyone can tell, there is no documentation that Padre Pio ever wrote a word about the Three Days of Darkness. His writings are archived - every letter and note still in existence - and nothing in the archive that mentions 3DoD. That doesn't mean that he didn't talk about it, or write it down on a lost paper, but it's entirely possible that his writing on 3DoD is entirely fictional. There is also no written word supporting Garabandal either.

I contacted the monastic archives in Italy, maybe a dozen years ago. They had nothing. I got the information on Garabandal in part from the same source, and I tried to get information from Conchita regarding the letter on Garabandal. Through one of her spokesmen, she said that the letter was lost. There is a letter on the internet if you dig deeply enough. (An oddity right off the bat, given that the recipient of the letter says that it's lost.) But I checked that as well, and the hand writing changes within the text; it's pretty clearly a forgery.

I don't buy Garabandal for a variety of reasons. I don't think the 3DoD is literal either, but I do think we are currently living through that 3DoD right now in a figurative timeline. However, on 3DoD I'm not willing to write it off entirely.

scroll down to the Dec 16th comet

http://www.spaceweather.com/

BRIGHTENING COMET WIRTANEN: Comet 46P/Wirtanen is nearing Earth for one of the 10 closest Earth-comet encounters of the Space Age. Closest approach: Dec. 16th. Observers say that the comet may now be seen with the unaided eye from dark rural areas, "appearing as a huge 1 degree misty cloud," reports Chris Schur of Payson, Arizona. "It is a photographers dream." Indeed, just last night Bernt Olsen of Troms, Norway, took this picture using only a camera--no telescope required:

he comet is already shining like a (big fuzzy) star of 5th magnitude, and its brightness could increase another 3 to 5-fold. On Dec. 16th, the green comet will be nicely positioned in the constellation Taurus for easy viewing by observers in the northern hemisphere. Use these sky maps to plan your photos: Dec. 10, Dec. 11, Dec. 12, Dec. 13, Dec. 14, Dec. 15, Dec. 16

This commentary from Sr. St. Faustina on today's readings really spoke to me, and I thought a good message for preparing ourselves during Advent, so thought I'd share:

"The soul awaiting the coming of the Lord : I do not know, O Lord, at what hour you will come. And so I keep constant watch and listen As your chosen bride. Knowing that you like to come unexpected. Yet a pure heart will sense you from afar, O Lord. I wait for you, Lord, in calm and silence, With great longing in my heart And with invincible desire. I feel that my love for you is changing into fire, And that it will rise up to heaven like a flame at life's end, And then all my wishes will be fulfilled. Come then at last, my most sweet Lord And take my thirsting heart There, to your home in the lofty regions of heaven, Where your eternal life reigns everlasting. Life on this earth is but an agony Since my heart feels it is created for the heights. The lowlands of this life hold no interest for it For my homeland is in heaven – this I firmly believe."


Diary, § 1589 Sr. Saint Faustina Kowalska

P5borel said...

Emmett,
You wrote a comment a while ago about your personal life (which you soon afterwards deleted) and mentioned that your belief that Amoris Laeticia is correct was related to your interpretation of some incident or experience you had had related to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
I have been wanting to tell you about an experience one of my sisters had and how for the longest time I (and she) were interpreting the event to mean one thing - only to realize many years later that we had misinterpreted the meaning of the event.
My sister was married for a second time after having her first marriage annulled. Then the second husband walked out and filed for divorce. My sister begged and begged the Lord to heal her relationship with her husband. Several years went by. Then, one morning, on the anniversary of her wedding to this husband at the exact time her wedding had been, she was praying in her room when the (rather delicate little crown of stars on a 6 inch plastic statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary from Medjugorje which I had given her years earlier lit up. There was nothing electrical on the statue. There was no earthly explanation of the occurrence. It had never happened before or since. My sister (and I) interpreted this as a sign from Mary that her marriage to this man would be healed and they would reconcile.
It is now many years later and my sister just this past weekend married a wonderful Catholic man she met at Church. After a careful process of discernment, my sister requested that her marriage to husband number 2 be annulled and the request was granted.
So what have I learned from this experience? That we should not rely on our own understanding as to the meaning of certain Marian signs. We should trust in the Lord. I do believe Mary was telling my sister something concerning her marriage to husband number 2 - but now I see clearly that it was not that that marriage was valid and was going to be reconciled. Instead, I now believe the sign was that Mary had my sister under her Mantle and that all would work out for the best! So, please be careful not to be too certain that you are interpreting the Marian sign you received correctly. Proverbs says "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart. Do not rely on your own understanding."

Emmett O'Regan said...

Thanks Veritas! A priest I was speaking to said more or less the same thing. That maybe that is where God wanted me to be for that particular moment of my life, in order to remove me from living a hedonistic lifestyle. The first step in the law of graduality so to speak. I've since realised that someone who doesn't believe in the indissolubility of marriage isn't capable of entering into a valid sacramental marriage. God simply won't acknowledge a marriage from the outset if someone doesn't believe their vows. I now know from first-hand experience that the rejection of the permanent nature of marriage is one of the greatest evils of modern society. So many lives have been left in utter devastation because of this attitude towards marriage. Some people just don't even make the effort to reconcile because they see marriage as something that can be just folded down at a whim, and their hearts are closed to forgiveness.

We are less than 15 days away from prophetic history : the completion of the 2300 day cleansing period of Daniel 8:14. When Jesus said to me, "Give in now, John, until it comes time to fulfill all justice.", He was referencing that point in time between "this age" and "the age to come". That point in time is between December 29, 2018 A.D. and December 30, 2018 A.D. There is no changing this by human means.

Today being the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, 1P5 posted a wonderful article about the history of the statue and the name:

https://onepeterfive.com/the-two-guadalupes-mary-and-the-crescent-moon/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Onepeterfive+%28OnePeterFive%29

I had just been thinking about the way God has often used indigenous pagan symbols to win souls; the status of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a case in point. She is depicted surrounded by rays of the sun; to the natives of Mexico at the time, this as a Big Thing: The sun was a deity to them, and the fact that she occluded it was a sign of her great power. Then along came this article explaining the significance of the crescent moon under her feet. Wow. In Lepanto, and then in Spain, she was instrumental in the defeat of the Islamic hordes. As the article at 1P5 points out, she will be instrumental again.

Jason R. said...

Merry Christmas to you, too, Chris, and everyone else who posts or reads here!

JMC, thanks for that link to a very interesting article, I am a big history buff and I'd never heard about this particular story with the statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe involved with the Reconquista, it is just amazing and more proof of the role Our Lady has played, and will continue to play in our history.

It also really brought me back to when I was 14 years old and a counsellor at a summer camp. The camp was on land that was originally part of a mission of the OMI order, with many graves of priests and religious there, with some of the headstones even marked that some died as martyrs. There was also an away camp with more graves, and further down the valley across the lake from where there was a big former seminary that burned down I think sometime in the 1960s is a beautiful church, and the hardest Stations of the Cross I ever made several times as a kid (Corpus Christi and Good Friday every year) that leads straight up one of the hardest paths starting at the valley floor and going straight up and ending at the beginning of the fields and ranchland at the very top of the valley. It's something else.


But one day that summer all of us counsellors got a tour of the cellar of the church (which is itself amazing, constructed in the same style as churches in France at that time, if you can find pictures of this church in the tiny village of Lebret SK online somewhere you would see what I mean), and down in that cellar were dozens of statues of Jesus and Mary that told quite a story. When the French Revolution was raging, many statues were spirited out of France to save them from destruction by the Republicans who had overthrown the monarchy, really incredible works of art that I'd guess would be worth a fortune, and they'd spent many years in that cellar, they are still there to my knowledge.

I was struck at that time by two statues, one of Our Lord during His walk to Golgotha that stood out because the sculptor had used his own fingernails and toenails that he pulled out to use on the statue. I'd never heard of such a thing, and it seems rather odd to me, but the testament to the artist's devotion can't be denied though it was a little gruesome almost, but there was also a statue of Our Lady that the priest giving the tour said had once been at the Notre-Dame de Paris that had a very large and prominent crescent moon at her feet. The pictures in the link you gave JMC reminded me of this statue right away. It's kind of a shame that these statues are locked away and only shown to special groups, if at all any more, but maybe they'll eventually make their way back to Quebec or even France. The fact that the early missionaries to the Canadian prairies brought all these statues with them, that's always seemed like such a dedicated task to me considering they mostly got here in big birch bark freighter canoes all the way from the East, where even bringing the bare essentials of European life was a chore in itself.


Anyways, I know totally OT, but I thought some of you might find this as interesting as I did back in 1984, and still do, that all these art treasures rescued from the French Revolution are in a old, dark, musty church cellar in such an obscure location as the tiny mostly-Metis fishing village of Lebret, Saskatchewan. Thanks for the memory JMC, as well as that link and the feeling that Our Lady will help greatly in the eventual conversion of Muslims to the true faith.

JMC said...

Wow. I had no idea that statues had been spirited out of France to save them from the iconoclasts. Information on my family tree is sparse due to the destruction of records in fires, but family legend has it that my ancestors fled France during the Revolution because, as Catholics, their lives were in peril. With no more information than that, I find it tempting to wonder if some of those ancestors may have had a hand in helping move those statues. ;D Thanks, Jason, and Merry Christmas.

while on other sides of the world from each other, it feels a bit of a foreshadowing/warning of what's to come, maybe is arriving.

from christine gallagher's website....

I cannot emphasize strongly enough the devastating danger that awaits New York and the pain I feel at the deafness of people to the merciful call of God who wishes to protect you. It brings me back to the moment when I stood on the steps of the Marriott Hotel next to the Twin Towers on 9/11, 1999 and responded to Judge Dan Lynch that the Twin Towers would come down if the American people did not turn back to God and I knew my words caused embarrassment and disbelief, yet two years later when the calamity occurred, he quickly phoned an Irish radio programme to recall the prophecy I had given and to uphold it. I say now to the people of New York, it is entirely up to yourselves what you do. My responsibility is ended when I convey to you what I have received in the most recent message and I will not be repeating it again. However, I can and must assure you that what is given will take place - like all else that I have received. While I was made aware of the manner in which the destruction will take place, I do not feel it would serve any purpose, other than curiosity, to engage in discussion at that level. Everything depends upon your free response to God's offer of mercy.

I leave you with the words Jesus spoke on my return journey from the United States,
"…My people of New York, you fail to hear and take to heart My call. You have a very short time to answer to My call. Your life is so busy with everything of the world and that of the flesh. I do not exist in your lives but when the chain of power begins you will realise how foolish you have become. I call you 'man of sorrow' for that is what you have been in My Heart. Listen in humility to My Wisdom through My messenger regarding the existence of New York for it will be disintegrated ……..to a non-existence while you are asleep and it is too late to awake you. Time is NOW. Your time is short. As I said, I will not call again. The choice is yours. My people, I love you. Turn to Me while you have time. Accept Me as your Lord and Saviour."

I feel christines most ominous warning is for the corner of africa to split off and then this warning appear .
Africa could eventually split into two continents
While geologists have known about this possibility for a while, it became news recently when a large crack, stretching several miles in length, made a sudden appearance in southwestern Kenya following heavy rain.

Updated: 7:35 PM EDT April 4, 2018
Africa may eventually split into two parts.

While geologists have known about this possibility for a while, it became news recently when a large crack, stretching several miles in length, made a sudden appearance in southwestern Kenya following heavy rain.

The tear, which continues to grow, collapsed part of a highway and "was accompanied by seismic activity in the area," said Lucia Perez Diaz, a postdoctoral researcher on tectonics at Royal Holloway, a university in London.

The crack is located in a region known as the East African Rift Valley. It measures more than 50 feet in depth and 65 feet across, according to National Geographic. A rift valley refers to a lowland region where tectonic plates rift, or move apart.

did she see this 20 years ago??

JMC said...

I remember reading about that crack last spring. Geologically speaking, it could still be quite some time before the split actually occurs, if God uses this is a normal Secondary Cause. However, given that we're talking about chastisements here, it's more likely that there will be another sudden change in this crack, and the split will then occur sooner rather than later.
.
The other thing of note is, for those of us who believe the three days of darkness is a literal thing, they are supposed to be accompanied by earthquakes; given that Gallagher talks about earthquakes threatening New York (which is situated on solid bedrock and, to my knowledge, has only had one minor earthquake, back in the 1970s). It seems plausible that the two events, in Africa and New York, could happen in conjunction with the TDoD.

The "Three Days of Darkness" with respect to its occurrence before such completion is no longer a physical possibility as per Michel de Nostradamus' Book V:#83 quatrain which foretold the 'warning' thus :

83
Those who will have undertaken to subvert,
An unparalleled realm, powerful and invincible:
They will act through deceit, nights three to warn,
When the greatest one will read his Bible at the table.

Guardian Angels ~ Fr Ripperger

A lecture on Angels. What are they? How do they be? What do they do? How can we grow in our relationship to our guardian angel? How did we get our guardian angel? What can guardian angels do & not do?

JMC said...

His talk about angels was really very informative. The QA session, though, not so much, mostly because you can't always hear the questions, and he doesn't always repeat them, so you don't know what's being discussed. But the talk itself was excellent and well worth listening to. Thanks for that one, Chris. ;D

Could Vladimir Putin be Gog?

According to Scripture, an aggressive and authoritarian ruler identified as “Gog” will arise from Russia (known in Biblical times as “Magog”) to lead a coalition of nations against Israel, in what is known as the Ezekiel 38-39 war, in the last days.

Since this ruler is likely that of either a current or future leader of Russia, and the stage appears to be set for the Ezekiel 38-39 war, there may well be a credible candidate for Gog, and there is: Vladimir Putin. Little is known about this man, who was catapulted from obscurity into the seat of Russian power. What is known, however, is that Putin very closely fits the description of Gog...

Don't rule out the octaves for the final three days within the 2,300 day cleansing period proper for the Three Days of Darkness.

Christ is not chained to appear within the 2,300 day period, but He is the first fruits (Sunday).

As for the usual banter against this, come see me this week and I'll fix your problem immediately.

JMC said...

Okay, maybe I'm misremembering something, but I was under the impression that Gog was a place, not a person, and that the great war was supposed to be between Gog and Magog.

chris said...


that's why I'm reading and trying to get different opinions. with turkey and Erdogan becoming prominent, things become more interesting.,

Could Vladimir Putin be Gog? Wonder what all those believers of Russia's conversion will think? If mr. putin goes on the warpath, perhaps the 3rd secret will be truly revealed AND the consecration will actually occur!!!

our one world government pope

In his traditional Christmas speech, Pope Francis urged Christians to reject sovereignty and embrace globalism in order to make the world a better place. Addressing the rise in populism and increasing hostility about illegal immigration among westerners, Pope Francis warned: “Our differences are not a detriment or a danger; they are a source of richness. As when an artist is about to make a mosaic: it is better to have tiles of many colours available, rather than just a few,” the Pope told a large audience in the Vatican

Edward Palamar said...

Mishandling of information can produce botched results. Back in 1975 A.D. here in Chester County, there was what the police called a murder-suicide, five victims, even though there was a missing vehicle, money found strewn in the back yard, sign of forced entry, and a difficult angle for the final, supposedly, self-inflicted gunshot. So it seems this 'Third Secret' has become. Logically, given the evidence, the Third Secret would have to have been a foretelling of the unsealing of the Book of Daniel.

Gog and Magog (the far recesses of the north) began to evidence themselves as early as the Schism of 1054 A.D., when the 'orthodox' began its campaign against Rome by insisting that the Pontificates be made to appear to support the filioque, and eventually against the entire world via its revolutionary attacks.

Botched information can have its price, however. The filioque began as an error of oral recitation at the end of the 4th century in Syria. If one looks at what has happened in Aleppo, Syria, recently, it shows the cost of trying to stick words into Our Savior's mouth which He never said.

In a democratic system with a healthy balance of power, a ruling coalition can be challenged or replaced by the opposition. This is precisely what is lacking in the EU, as the Treaty of Lisbon requires that European Commission members be selected on the basis of their "European commitment." This means, in effect, that anyone with a dissenting view may never become a member of the Commission.

Report: Russia Threatens Israel With Missile Attack

JMC said...

Veritas: I just downloaded Kramer's book myself. I'm just in the middle of his introduction, and that section alone is pretty explosive.
.
I was watching that "Deep State Church" video, and during it had something of an epiphany. Several speakers at these Fatima conferences have pointed to things that Pope Francis has said as telling us precisely what the plan is. Somehow, I don't think that he's actually on board with these plans; I get the persistent feeling that he is being coerced in some way. Fr. Malachi Martin pointed out that some of the murders he depicted in his novels were things that actually happened; he pointed out in a talk he gave after the publication of "Windswept House" that it was a subject of some concern within the Vatican that the death of Pope John Paul I was actually a murder, because he fully intended to defy the Modernists and perform the specific consecration of Russia.
.
In one issue of the "Fatima Crusader," Fr. Gruner wrote concerning the then-recent ascension of Pope Francis to the Chair of Peter that he knew the man personally, knew that he *wanted* to see the Consecration done. In another issue, I think about a year later, a public appearance of the Pope was described. One spectator, one of the staffers at the Fatima Apostolate, called out to him as he passed, asking a question about the Consecration of Russia. He looked directly at her; she described that look as definitely trying to tell her something, but she couldn't quite figure out what.
.
I am seriously beginning to suspect that what Pope Francis is doing is trying to *warn* us about what's going on behind closed doors. He's under coercion or threat, and I think these supposedly off-the-cuff things he's said that have thrown us all into confusion are actually planned hints, this is what the Masons and Modernists in the Vatican are trying to do. Just as those who actually read the Third Secret under oath of secrecy have been able to give us hints without violating that oath, I think he may be trying to tell us what he is doing. Remember the Pope (I think it was Benedict) who said in his office, "My power ends at that door." After all, the Second Vatican Council is, to my knowledge (check me on this, someone?), the only major council in Church History which did NOT make a solemn declaration or definition about anything. I do know that, with the sole exception of JPII's declaration that even a Pope does not have the authority to allow women to be priests, no solemn declaration or definition has come out of the Vatican since.
.
I will grant that I do have a tendency, sometimes bordering on the naïve, to try to see the best in people, until and unless I see solid evidence to the contrary. I will be the first to say that I have been proven wrong many times in my life, and this may turn out to be one of them. But for now, at least, it's food for thought, and all the more reason to pray unceasingly for the Supreme Pontiff.

What is the Third Secret of Fatima? Cardinal Ratzinger once said that the Third Secret of Fatima is the same as the message of Our Lady of Akita. So Dr Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon delve into the apparition of Our Lady of Akita in Japan and relate it to the message of Our Lady of Fatima and the Third Secret. Dr Taylor Marshall is the best-selling Catholic author of The Crucified Rabbi, The Eternal City, and Sword and Serpent. He produces weekly Youtube videos (usually published 12pm Central).

I'm going to have to download Kramer's book.

My biggest problem with this kind of idea is the logic of the surviving messenger. If you think about it, if what Kramer says is true, then these people might have gone so far as to kill a pope. In such a case, why is Kramer himself still alive? If they'd kill a pope, then they'd likely do in Kramer as well.

Don't get me wrong, I do believe that there have been deaths involved here. My own research leads me to think that maybe 6 priests in the US alone were killed to keep The Scandal a secret (clearly I have no evidence beyond circumstantial, but where there's smoke, there's fire). But sometimes it's hard to sort out where the forest begins and where the trees end.

A ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ Will be Visible All Across the U.S. on the Second Anniversary of Trump’s Inauguration

Lastly, a “wolf moon” is simply “the year’s first full moon”…

This will be the first lunar eclipse of 2019 and the last total lunar eclipse until 2021. It coincides with the year’s first full moon — a “wolf moon” in the folklore tradition because it occurs at a time of year when wolves howl outside villages — and comes when the moon is slightly bigger and brighter because it’s at the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit.



Since it’s a so-called supermoon that’s being shadowed, some media outlets have dubbed this eclipse a “super blood wolf moon.”

JMC said...

Sounds like someone's trying to make it sound like an ominous sign surrounding Trump, much as some wondered if there was any significance about that lightning bolt hitting the Vatican after B16 resigned. ;D

The coming destruction of Damascus could be the match that sets the entire Middle East on Fire. God did say he'd kindle a flame in Damascus. With Assad being allies with Russia and Iran, it's not hard to see them engaging Israel, and soon it seems.

On New Year's Eve, the United States military sent out a very odd but also extremely telling tweet:

"#TimesSquare tradition rings in the #NewYear by dropping the big ball ... if ever needed, we are #ready to drop something much, much bigger," the original post read. "Watch to the end! @AFGlobalStrike @Whiteman_AFB #Deterrence #Assurance #CombatReadyForce #PeacelsOurProfession."

This was a warning to someone, and it most likely was directed towards Iran and Russia.

it is the fact that it is a 113 number. jan 13, 2019.
there is a list of coincidental happenings on this combo, as well as others.

george bush death 11,30, 2018 ============113 he was helped on that day it seems
last year was the Hawaii missile scare-- which more is known about now

jan 31 last year 131 the congressional train wreck

Nothing has changed in the last 500 years. Just look at what the great Saint Thomas More wrote in the masterpiece "Utopia":

‘Therefore I must say that, as I hope for mercy, I can have no other notion of all the other governments that I see or know, than that they are a conspiracy of the rich, who, on pretence of managing the public, only pursue their private ends, and devise all the ways and arts they can find out; first, that they may, without danger, preserve all that they have so ill-acquired, and then, that they may engage the poor to toil and labour for them at as low rates as possible, and oppress them as much as they please; and if they can but prevail to get these contrivances established by the show of public authority, which is considered as the representative of the whole people, then they are accounted laws; yet these wicked men, after they have, by a most insatiable covetousness, divided that among themselves with which all the rest might have been well supplied...

JMC said...

Which essentially makes government a "necessary evil," because without government, we have complete and total anarchy. Unfortunately, there will never be a "perfect" government this side of the General Judgment.

Anonymous said...

Saint Thomas More, patron Saint of the politicians. There is no effort whatsoever from their part to imitate him as they should do...

So sad...

Fatima and Akita being the same message, we are looking for trouble ahead...

We have to pray more than ever...
