THERE is something happening that we have to pay attention to, something the Lord is doing, or one could say, allowing. And that is the stripping of His Bride, Mother Church, of her worldly and stained garments, until she stands naked before Him.

The prophet Hosea writes…

Accuse your mother, accuse! for she is not my wife, and I am not her husband. Let her remove her prostitution from her face, her adultery from between her breasts, or I will strip her naked, leaving her as on the day of her birth… For she said, “I will go after my lovers, who give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.” Therefore, I will hedge in her way with thorns and erect a wall against her, so that she cannot find her paths… Now I will lay bare her shame in full view of her lovers, and no one can deliver her out of my hand… Therefore, I will allure her now; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak persuasively to her. Then I will give her the vineyards she had, and the valley of Achor as a door of hope. (Hos 2:4-17)

The Lord, in His ineffable love for her, is drawing His Bride into the desert to be denuded of every love that is not rooted in Him. Hence, these are the worst and best of times for which we were born. There is a saying that goes “Those who choose to be married to the spirit of the world in this age, will be divorced in the next.” Hence, the Lord is sifting humanity like wheat from the tares in order to draw a People to Himself, to be pure, holy and spotless. As Hosea wrote, “They will be called, ‘Children of the living God.’” Recall The Prophecy at Rome where Jesus says, 

I will lead you into the desert… I will strip you of everything that you are depending on now, so you depend just on me… And when you have nothing but Me, you will have everything… —given at Rome, St. Peter’s Square, Pentecost Monday of May, 1975 (from Ralph Martin)

As I was writing this, an invitation arrived in my email to come to Ohio to speak at a conference. But I replied that our government forbids those such as me, who have rejected the experimental gene therapy (even though I’ve had COVID, and am immune) from travelling on bus, train, or plane. In fact, I am not allowed in gyms, restaurants, liquor stores, theatres, etc. either. I have also been banned or blocked on several social media platforms for merely discussing the science and data. Far more tragic, I have received numerous letters from doctors, nurses, pilots, soldiers and other professionals, who have been fired or dismissed for the same reasons — people with families, mortgages, obligations and dreams… all of those shattered now by the spectre of a new global tyranny advancing in the name of “health.” Never has the poverty of being abandoned been felt so keenly around the world as our bishops have remained almost completely silent if not complicit — leaving their flock to the wolves.[1] 

You did not bring back the stray or seek the lost but ruled them harshly and brutally. So they were scattered for lack of a shepherd, and became food for all the wild beasts. (Ezekiel 34:2-5) 

Now we see food beginning to disappear off of shelves in many places[2] as other countries quietly posit the idea of banning private car ownership.[3] It’s all fully planned as part of The Great Resetwhich is nothing other than the intentional demolition of the present state of things in order to “build back better.”[4] It is not the raising of the poor to a place of dignity but plunging all into poverty. It is the fulfillment of Isaiah’s Prophecy of Global Communism and the prescient words of Church Father Lactantius:

That will be the time in which righteousness shall be cast out, and innocence be hated; in which the wicked shall prey upon the good as enemies; neither law, nor order, nor military discipline shall be preserved… all things shall be confounded and mixed together against right, and against the laws of nature. Thus the earth shall be laid waste, as though by one common robbery. When these things shall so happen, then the righteous and the followers of truth shall separate themselves from the wicked, and flee into solitudes. —Lactantius, Church Father, The Divine Institutes, Book VII, Ch. 17

Into the desert.[5]

…the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly to her place in the desert, where, far from the serpent, she was taken care of for a year, two years, and a half-year. (Revelation 12:14)

All this is to say that the Lord is permitting His Church to enter her own Passion. Just as Jesus was stripped of His garments and dignity, so too, the glory of the Church is being cast into the dust, along with her idolatries, in order to purge and purify her soul. Fr. Ottavio Michelini was a priest, mystic, and member of the Papal Court of Pope St. Paul VI (one of the highest honors bestowed by a Pope on a living person). On June 15, 1978, St. Dominic Savio said to him:

And the Church, placed in the world as a Teacher and Guide of the nations? Oh, the Church! The Church of Jesus, that issued from the wound of His side: she also has been contaminated and infected by the poison of Satan and of his wicked legions — but it will not perish; in the Church is present the Divine Redeemer; it cannot perish, but it must suffer its tremendous Passion, just like its invisible Head. Afterwards, the Church and all of humanity will be raised up from its ruins, to begin a new path of justice and of peace in which the Kingdom of God will truly dwell in all hearts — that interior kingdom that upright souls have asked for and implored for so many ages [through the petition of the Our Father: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”]. — cf. “Fr. Ottavio – A New Era of Peace”


My daughter Denise, the author, phoned me today. She had been pondering about human “progress” and how the architecture of previous eras was actually far superior than today, not only in quality but beauty. We began to discuss how actually so much of this present generation is greatly impoverished compared to the past and how the idea that we have “progressed” is false. Consider how music has lost so much of the beauty and glorify of previous eras, often reduced to the banal and sensual. How the food we eat has gone from nutrient-rich organic home-grown gardens to mass processed genetically modified foods laced with chemicals, preservatives, and agricultural chemicals, like glyphosate.[6] How the state of world peace in the face of advancing weapons of mass destruction is more fragile than ever. How entire villages and towns are still without fresh water and basic food supplies while Westerners buy bottled water and become disproportionately overweight. How communication skills between people have regressed through technology. How general health is plunging as auto-immune diseases begin to skyrocket. How the domestic family is rapidly deteriorating and political discourse disintegrating. How freedom and democracy are in decline, not progression.

Is progress really a curve that sweeps perpetually higher? Wasn’t packaging (or toymaking or cobbling or winemaking or milk or cheese or cement, for that matter) often better three hundred or seven hundred or nineteen hundred years ago? —Anthony Doerr, Four Seasons in Rome, pg. 107

I can hear Jesus pronouncing over the Church and the world:

For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing; not knowing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich, and white garments to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent. (Rev 3:17-19)

The most essential poverty to recognize in this present moment is that of our own interior life. Because if God has permitted man to bring himself to the point of self-destruction, it is only so that we would recognize our absolute and unchangeable need for Him. It is the poverty of realizing that I am helpless against the tide of this new Communism. It is the poverty of losing my freedom. It is the poverty of feeling my own weakness, my inability to change the situations around me. It is the poverty of seeing myself as I truly am. It is the poverty of accepting this or that illness or malady. It is the poverty of growing older and facing my mortality, of seeing my children leave home into a world increasingly hostile to the Faith and freedom. It is also the poverty of seeing within myself those faults and frailties that continue to cause me to stumble and fall. 

It is there, however, there in that present moment of truth that I can begin to be set free. It is in this present moment that I find the hidden will of God, in all its distressing disguises, alluring me so that He can speak to my heart and heal it. It is here, in the poverty of this desert of helplessness that I can actually begin to let God father me as I abandon myself to Him saying, “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of David, have pity on me.”[7] 

We need enlightened eyes of the hear to pierce the disguises, to say “yes, you are my Father” in the now. There is only one point, so to speak, where God is for us, and that is the now. How readily we would escape from the now — into what we think should be, to what may be, to what has been, to what is coming. How much energy and attention we waste worrying over the past, being anxious and doubtful and full of fear for the future. He is with me now, quietly, unobtrusively asking  me to receive Him, to recognize Him. Now, in this one little circumscribed moment, I can say “yes, Father.” Such a poor little “yes”; no grandiose certainties that I will never do this again, never commit that fault again — no dreads and despairs that I cannot be faithful. Only a little “yes” now… That is to live in my poverty relying only on Him to see me through, to enable me to say “yes” — to do what I can’t — be faithful unto death. —Sr. Ruth Burrows, O.C.D., a Carmelite nun, published in Magnificat, January 2022, January 10th

The irony is that it is not when my will triumphs, but His, that I find the peace I so long for. Jesus said to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta:

My daughter, I feel the need that the creature rest in Me, and I in her. But do you know when the creature rests in Me, and I in her? When her intelligence thinks of Me and comprehends Me, she rests in the Intelligence of her Creator, and That of the Creator finds rest in the created mind. When the human will unites with the Divine Will, the two wills embrace and rest together. If human love rises above all created things and loves only its God – what a beautiful rest do God and the creature find reciprocally! One who gives rest, finds it. I become her bed and keep her in the sweetest sleep, clasped in my arms. Therefore, come and rest in my bosom. —Volume 14, March 18th, 1922

If we could only accept that all things are permitted by the hand of God, even the gravest evils, then we could rest knowing that His permissive will has a better path than the one I foresee. This abandonment to God is the real source of peace because nothing, then, can touch my soul when I am resting in Him.[8] 

You do not turn to Me, instead, you want me to adapt your ideas. You are not sick people who ask the doctor to cure you, but rather sick people who tell the doctor how to. So do not act this way, but pray as I taught you in the our Father: “Hallowed be thy Name,” that is, be glorified in my need. “Thy kingdom come,” that is, let all that is in us and in the world be in accord with your kingdom. “Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven,” that is, in our need, decide as you see fit for our temporal and eternal life. If you say to Me truly: “Thy will be done”, which is the same as saying: “You take care of it”, I will intervene with all My omnipotence, and I will resolve the most difficult situations. —Jesus to Servant of God Fr. Dolindo Ruotolo (d. 1970); from the Novena of Abandonment

It is to enter into the poverty of this present moment, where God is, and just let Him love and care for you in the way the Great Physician sees fit — bruised, impoverished, naked — but loved. 

Look about you, son of man. When you see it all shut down, when you see everything removed which has been taken for granted, and when you are prepared to live without these things, then you will know what I am making ready. —prophecy given to Fr. Michael Scanlan in 1976,

For the wedding day of the Lamb has come, his bride has made herself ready. She was allowed to wear a bright, clean linen garment. (Rev 19:7-8)

Posted on  by Mark

…there is none more blind than he who does not want to see,
and despite the signs of the times foretold,
even those who have faith
refuse to look at what is happening. 
Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, October 26th, 2021 


I AM supposed to be embarrassed by this article’s title — ashamed to utter the phrase “end times” or quote the Book of Revelation much less dare to mention Marian apparitions. Such antiquities supposedly belong in the dust bin of medieval superstitions alongside archaic beliefs in “private revelation”, “prophecy” and those ignominious expressions of “the mark of the beast” or “Antichrist.” Yes, better to leave them to that garish era when Catholic churches billowed with incense as they churned out saints, priests evangelized pagans, and commoners actually believed that faith could drive away plagues and demons. In those days, statues and icons not only adorned churches but public buildings and homes. Imagine that. The “dark ages” — enlightened atheists call them.

But I’m not ashamed. In fact, I feel sorry for those who cower behind the hedges when apocalyptic themes stroll by; or those who quickly change the subject before breaking a sweat; or those who pretend in their homilies that we didn’t just hear Mass readings on the “end times” (a perfect time to focus on Old Testament yore, tell a joke — or just remind everyone that each day could be our “end time.”) However, after watching and praying in this apostolate for 17 years; after listening to pope after pope since the 1800’s declare that we are entering the apocalypse;[1] after weighing and testing over a century of Our Lady’s apparitions;[2] and after diligently studying the signs of the times in world events… I think it is utterly silly if not reckless to remain silent in the face of the evidence before us. 

The Signs of Our Hour

Twenty years ago, Pope St. John Paul II actually called the youth to a “stupendous task” to become watchmen who are to announce the coming of the risen Christ.[3] Ironically, the most significant and authoritative view on our times has come from the popes themselves. I’ve chronicled this already[4] and have cited them throughout hundreds of writings. In short, they believed that those passages of Scriptures that speak of “apostasy”, “the love of many growing cold”, of “wars and rumors of wars”, of the “dragon’s” attempt to eliminate the Faith, and the appearance of “Antichrist”… are now upon us. In summary: 

…the whole Christian people, sadly disheartened and disrupted, are continually in danger of falling away from the faith, or of suffering the most cruel death. These things in truth are so sad that you might say that such events foreshadow and portend the “beginning of sorrows,” that is to say of those that shall be brought by the man of sin, “who is lifted up above all that is called God or is worshipped” (2 Thes 2:4). —POPE ST. PIUS X, Miserentissimus RedemptorEncyclical Letter on Reparation to the Sacred Heart, May 8th, 1928 

And recently, the language of Heaven’s messages have markedly changed from future tense to the present. Seers and mystics around the world, unknown to each other, are saying that this is now “the time of sorrows” and the fulfillment of prophecy;[5] that “days of great mourning are coming”[6] and thus, it is time to enter the “Ark of the covenant”, [7] which, of course, is a symbol and sign of Our Lady.[8] Of course, all this apocalyptic chatter has drawn the cynics out from the behind hedges to cast a few stones — before they disappear again.

…what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: “The days drag on, and every vision fails”? …Say to them instead: “The days are at hand and every vision fulfilled.” …In your days, rebellious house, whatever I speak I will bring about… The house of Israel is saying, “The vision he sees is a long time off; he prophesies for distant times!” Say to them therefore: “Thus says the Lord GOD: None of my words shall be delayed any longer. Whatever I say is final; it shall be done….” (Ezekiel 12:22-28)

Just as in Ezekiel’s time, so too, wrote Sts. Peter and Jude, there will be scoffers in ours:

You, beloved, remember the words spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, for they told you, “In [the] last time there will be scoffers who will live according to their own godless desires.” These are the ones who cause divisions; they live on the natural plane, devoid of the Spirit. (Jude 1:17-19)

Those with eyes to see and ears to hear recognize well the “signs of the times.” But the vast majority do not, especially within the Church itself. Like the Israelites of old, they rationalize away the evidence, ignore the obvious, smear the reputation of the prophets, ridicule the watchmen, and dismiss it all as “doom and gloom” (the Catholic version of “conspiracy theory”). This is why Jesus was careful to say that when these times would come, it would be “as in the days of Noah.” Even with the great sign of an enormous ark erected in their midst — a warning that the Flood was nearing — the people carried on “eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage up to the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.”[9]  Dear children, what more can I do for you…? I have been talking to you for so long: I have pleaded with you, prayed with you, suggested the words with which to pray to Jesus, but you have not listened to my words. Pay attention because it could really be too late for you… Convert, I say to you: the times are reaching their conclusion… I your Mother have always spoken to you with clarity: you will not be able to say “I did not understand”… Wake up, there is no more time for sleeping! Our Lady to Valeria Copponi, December 29th, 2021

The Great Signs

Likewise in our times, the great sign of the Ark of the Covenant is appearing in our midst — warning that the Storm is upon us:

Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant could be seen in the temple… A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth. Then another sign appeared in the sky; it was a huge red dragon… [it] stood before the woman about to give birth, to devour her child when she gave birth. (Rev 11:19-12:4)

Pope John Paul II gives further exegesis of these duelling signs as applying precisely to our times:

This marvelous world — so loved by the Father that he sent his only Son for its salvation — is the theater of a never-ending battle being waged for our dignity and identity as free, spiritual beings. This struggle parallels the apocalyptic combat described in the First Reading of this Mass [Rev 11:19-12:1-6]. Death battles against Life: a “culture of death” seeks to impose itself on our desire to live, and live to the full. There are those who reject the light of life, preferring “the fruitless works of darkness.” Their harvest is injustice, discrimination, exploitation, deceit, violence. In every age, a measure of their apparent success is the death of the innocents. In our own century, as at no other time in history, the “culture of death” has assumed a social and institutional form of legality to justify the most horrible crimes against humanity: genocide, “final solutions,” “ethnic cleansings,” and the massive “taking of lives of human beings even before they are born, or before they reach the natural point of death”…. Today that struggle has become increasingly direct. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Text of Pope John Paul II’s remarks at Sunday Mass at Cherry Creek State Park, Denver Colorado, World Youth Day, 1993, August 15, 1993, Solemnity of the Assumption;

If you wondered what the “end times” would look like, now you know:

Powerful economic and political powers intent upon
reducing and controlling the population


Those defending life, dignity and freedom.

Abortion and suicide are two of the chief cornerstones of this dragon’s game plan, claiming over 3.5 million lives worldwide each month.[10] A third cornerstone belongs to the violence that has exploded this past century through wars and violence. But now we see the fourth coming into view… 

“Final Solutions”

Before Christmas, I produced a webcast with a warning from the very inventor of the mRNA “vaccine” technology, Dr. Robert Malone, MD, that, indeed, the “innocents” are being directly attacked now [11] — babies as young as 6 months old. It’s utterly nonsensical and frankly evil to inject children who have a 99.9973% survival rate[12] with an experimental gene therapy —  especially as unprecedented permanent injuries and deaths are piling up globally, often occurring within 48 hours of inoculation.[13] As a father and grandfather, Dr. Malone begged parents not to inject their children — only to be banned by Twitter. In a follow-up to his short address, he recently stated:

It is starting to look to me like the largest experiment on human beings in recorded history has failed… Reiner Fuellmich’s “Crimes against Humanity” push for convening new Nuremberg trials starts to look a lot less quixotic and a lot more prophetic. —Dr. Robert Malone, MD, January 2nd, 2021;; see Reiner Fullmich in Following the Science?and Wait a Minute: Russian Roulette. See also “Fuellmich: New Findings Are Enough to Dismantle Entire VVV Industry” here; notes here.

This week, I republished data from the U.S. adverse events database (VAERS) showing that permanent heart damage has skyrocketed from being a rare occurrence to now over 22,000 cases of myo/pericardits (it was just over 10,000 when I initially published that in October 2020!) since the mass injections began. I cited a real-world study in Israel showing that the jabbed have a threefold increased risk of myocarditis.[14] For this apparent transgression, I, too, was blocked. As far as I’m concerned, Facebook and Twitter are guilty of “crimes against humanity” for censoring critical information the public has a right to evaluate. 

Now, with overwhelming evidence that these gene therapies are beginning to destroy people’s immunities and ability for DNA to be repaired,[15] the sad predictions of John Paul II are being fulfilled[16] on a whole new level. Three separate analyses, including a Columbian University study, show that approximately 300,000 – 400,000 Americans alone have been killed by the jab since its rollout.[17] What the mass media is covering up and refusing to discuss, brave nurse and doctor whistleblowers around the globe are exposing,[18] as well as funeral directors,[19] insurance executives,[20] and the occasional brave politician.[21] And one simply cannot ignore the growing mountain of direct testimonies of those who have been injured or witnessed their perfectly healthy loved ones die after the shot.[22]

All this is denied and suppressed by the mainstream media with such brilliant success that many have begun to believe that, even if there is “some truth” to the tragedies, the collateral damage is acceptable and that everyone must be injected at all costs. Hence, forced segregation and vilification of the “unvaccinated” is now as acceptable as was the demonization of the Jews. 

The “dragon” the “ruler of this world” and the “father of lies” relentlessly tries to eradicate from human hearts the sense of gratitude and respect for the original, extraordinary and fundamental gift of God: human life itself. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Ibid. World Youth Day, 1993, August 15, 1993;

mass psychosis has come over the world to not only facilitate but even celebrate as a “good” what John Paul II called the “final solutions” taking place in our times.[23]  

A New Religion

It is the rise of The Religion of Scientism — an excessive belief and trust in the power of scientific knowledge and techniques. This is not hyperbole. Catholic churches in some places closed their doors and forbade priests to give the sacraments, even to the sick — while at the same time opening their buildings to become vaccine centers — as though the injection were an eighth sacrament. At the beginning of the pandemic, we saw with breathtaking obedience how entire governments, institutions and leaders of all stripes, especially bishops, accepted with fundamentalist faith (or strange silence) every diktat descending from the unelected World Health Organization (whose chief funder is Bill Gates) and their appointed health officials — even when those mandates had little basis in science, were contradictory or were clearly trampling upon human dignity, freedom, and life.[24] As prestigious scientists from Harvard, Oxford, and elsewhere stepped forward to question the sanity of, for instance, locking down or masking healthy individuals, they were banned and deplatformed.[25]

This blatant censorship, however, was not only not condemned but was applauded and encouraged by the mass media and their transfixed followers. People were beginning to act with all the hallmark traits of belonging to a cult.[26] Prof. Mattias Desmet of the Department of Psychoanalysis and Clinical Consulting at Ghenet University underscores the powerful propaganda of the current COVID narrative and how this generation has reached a point of “mass formation psychosis.” 

In the beginning of the crisis I had been studying the statistics and the numbers and actually, I noticed that they were often blatantly wrong and at the same time people continue to believe in it and to go along with the mainstream narrative. That was why I started to study it rather from the perspective of mass psychology. Because I knew that mass formation has a huge, huge impact on individual’s intelligence and cognitive functioning. I had the feeling that this was the only thing that could explain why highly intelligent people started to believe the narrative and the numbers that were in many respects utterly absurd. —interview with Reiner Fuellmich and the Corona Investigative

Several scientists and doctors have echoed this alarming perspective — see footnote: [27] In fact, the Canadian military has admitted that they used “propaganda techniques similar to those employed during the Afghanistan war” on the unsuspecting population. The campaign called for “shaping” and “exploiting” information.[28] U.K. scientists likewise admitted to engaging in deliberate propaganda to manipulate the public. “The use of fear has definitely been ethically questionable. It’s been like a weird experiment… The way we have used fear is dystopian,” said a scientist from the Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B), a sub-committee of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), the U.K. government’s chief scientific advisory group.[29]

Months before many scientists began speaking of a mass delusion, I had written an article called The Strong Delusion based on what St. Paul called a “strong delusion” that would accompany the appearance of the Antichrist.[30] 

The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thess 2:9-12)

The Catechism of the Catholic Church calls this “a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth.”[31]

How brilliant to use health crises as a pretext for saving the world.

The Satanic Long Game

All this is the fruit of a Masonic agenda that germinated over 400 years ago during the Enlightenment period and that has slowly displaced faith in God with faith in man. “Progress and science have given us the power to dominate the forces of nature,” warned Pope Benedict XVI. “We don’t realize we are reliving the same experience as Babel.”[32] He visited this general theme in his first encyclical letter:

This programmatic vision has determined the trajectory of modern times… Francis Bacon (1561—1626) and those who followed in the intellectual current of modernity that he inspired, were wrong to believe that man would be redeemed through science. Such an expectation asks too much of science; this kind of hope is deceptive. Science can contribute greatly to making the world and mankind more human. Yet it can also destroy mankind and the world unless it is steered by forces that lie outside it. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Encyclical Letter, Spe Salvi, n. 25

Yes, we are told all is being done “for the common good” —  mandatory rules, restrictions, impositions, masking, lockdowns… it’s all for the “common good” and we must simply believe and comply. But this is a deception; it is ultimately geared toward what the United Nations and global leaders are calling The Great ResetIt involves the near-complete collapse of the present order in order to “build back better” — but, this time, without the Judeo-Christian religion. Only a true fool — or true pawn — would continue to lockdown healthy populations causing mass inflation and the destruction of the supply chain. Again, this too is straight out of the Masonic playbook.

…that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view—namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism. —POPE LEO XIII, Humanum GenusEncyclical on Freemasonry, n.10, Apri 20th, 1884

It is simply global Communism in a green hat.  

…as you can see, this is a time of great confusion, when evil is hiding behind false disguises; you will need to pay attention: walk together with Jesus and nourish yourselves with His Word for your salvation. Children, my little ones, they will try to make you believe that everything is being done for your good, but that is exactly where the temptation of the devil is hiding — discern. —Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, November 7th, 2020;

In my book The Final Confrontation there is a section called “The Dragon Appears: Sophistry”. Under that heading, I quoted Our Lord who said:

He was a murderer from the beginning… he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)

In the Book of Wisdom, we read:

By the envy of the devil, death came into the world: and they follow him that are of his side. (Wis 2:24-25; Douay-Rheims)

We have witnessed a profound season of sophistries, beginning with the ideology that science will save us: that we must blindly “follow the science”, “trust the data”, “flatten the curve”, “take the vaccine”, etc.  — without ever seeing the science, evidence, or data to support those claims. In that regard, the mass media has become an indispensable mouthpiece of this satanic programme.

We just observed the memorial of St. Elizabeth Anne Seton. It is hard not to recall her vision in the 1800’s when she saw “in every American home a black box through which the devil would enter.” Several decades ago, many thought she was referring to television sets. But back then, televisions were wooden boxes with gray screens. Today, every home, if not every room, has a true “black box”—a computer, “smart” phone, or “smart” TV through which Satan has gained a foothold to sow this “strong delusion” — using the “pretended signs and wonders” of technology.

Those people watching television now, they are brainwashed every day — that the vaccine is necessary, that COVID-19 is a very dangerous pandemic; they are brainwashed by the newspapers, by the media. And if they are not critically searching the internet for alternative information, they believe what they are told. Even if they have a doubt, their colleagues at work say, “You are not vaccinated??” —Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, PhD, “Planet Lockdown”, (On December 1, 2020, former VP of Pfizer Dr. Mike Yeadon and Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg filed an application with the European Medicine Agency responsible for EU-wide drug approval, calling for the immediate suspension of all SARS CoV 2 vaccine studies. They cited “significant safety concerns expressed by an increasing number of renowned scientists against the vaccine and the study design.”)

Years ago, the Lord was warning me about “vaccines.”[33] I knew something was terribly wrong when I observed the fanatical blowback to anyone who dared question the safety of these cocktails being injected into the bloodstream of infants and adults alike. That culminated in my article The Pandemic of Control that exposes the lies and tears that have trailed this industry. In other words, the preparation for this present satanic hour has been long in the making, over a century, since the Rockefeller family’s wealth was used to flip great portions of mankind from using naturopathic to allopathic medicine — from using God’s creation to heal bodies… to chemicals to treat symptoms.

The Lord created medicines from the earth, and a sensible man will not despise them. (Sirach 38:4 RSV)

After World War II, the very scientists who once worked in Hitler’s labs and concentration camps,[34] and who worked under Rockefeller’s merger Standard I.G. Farben,[35] became integrated into U.S. government programs to advance, in part, pharmaceutical “medicines” and the giant corporations who would sell them.[36] Of note is the occultism in the Nazi party[37] that drove, in part, the horrific “scientific” experiments on humans that involved testing vaccines and drugs [38]— experiments that have clearly not ended (and nor have the “camps” — see here). 

What has been the fruit of humanity’s wholesale rejection of the Lord’s medicines in nature?[39] According to a Harvard study:

About 128,000 people die from drugs prescribed to them. This makes prescription drugs a major health risk, ranking 4th with stroke as a leading cause of death. The European Commission estimates that adverse reactions from prescription drugs cause 200,000 deaths; so together, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year. — “New Prescription Drugs: A Major Health Risk With Few Offsetting Advantages”, Donald W. Light, June 27th, 2014;

He was a murderer from the beginning… he is a liar and the father of lies. Given all the papal and Marian warnings of the past century, it is not without warrant to consider that the “final solution” being carried out in our era is precisely what St. John said in the Book of Revelation:

…your merchants were the great men of the earth, all nations were led astray by your magic potion. (Rev 18:23)

The Greek for “magic potion”: φαρμακείᾳ (pharmakeia) — is the use of medicine, drugs or spells. It is the word from which we derive the term pharmaceuticals. 2000 years ago, St. John foresaw that drugs and medicines would be used to enslave mankind under a powerful group of men — “ten kings” who would rule for “one hour, together with the beast.”[40]

The Mark

It forced all the people, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to be given a stamped image on their right hands or their foreheads, so that no one could buy or sell except one who had the stamped image of the beast’s name or the number that stood for its name. (Rev 13:16-17)

Never in the history of mankind has the infrastructure and consequent technology existed for this “mark” to be possible, until now. Already, many countries are barring their citizens from fully participating in the economy, and even buying food,[41] without a “vaccine passport.” In Austria, it is mandatory for all eligible citizens to be injected or face fines or prison;[42] Italy just announced mandatory injections for those over 50 — or risk a fine of €600 to €1,500;[43] and Australia has begun confining non-compliant individuals in “COVID camps”.[44]

But nothing is more ominous than the spectre of “digital ID passports.” In countries like Sweden, 6000 people have already been microchipped as vaccine passports are being rolled out (cf. and In fact, The World Economic Forum — the ones engineering the “Great Reset” — has promoted the microchip as a “Passport for everything”.[45] In April 2021, the Pentagon revealed that scientists have developed a chip to monitor health and disease. Tech startup, Epicenter, who is developing a chip to scan for vaccines, says, “Right now it is very convenient to have a COVID passport always accessible on your implant.” And scientists at MIT have already started clinical trials of a vaccine delivery system that can be stamped onto the skin.[46]

…they’ve created an ink that can be safely embedded in the skin alongside the vaccine itself, and it’s only visible using a special smartphone camera app and filter. —FuturismDecember 19th, 2019

Ironically, the invisible “ink” employed is called “Luciferase,” a bioluminescent chemical delivered through “quantum dots” that will leave an invisible “mark” of your immunization and record of information.[47] Indeed, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are working with the United Nations program ID2020 that seeks to give every citizen on earth a digital ID tied to a vaccine. Gates’ GAVI, “The Vaccine Alliance” is teaming up with the UN to integrate vaccines with some kind of biometric. But several scientists, including Dr. Wolgang Wogard, PhD, former chair of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Health Committee, has warned against the illusion that such passports will grant freedom to anyone: 

It seems a “mark” (whatever form it takes) by which alone one will be able to “buy and sell” is no longer so-called Christian mythology but an increasingly present reality.

The Watchman’s Responsibility

As Our Lady allegedly said to Italian seer Gisella Cardia, “…there is none more blind than he who does not want to see, and despite the signs of the times foretold, even those who have faith refuse to look at what is happening.” 

While the point of this article is truly to awaken souls still caught in the mass hypnosis and to also further bolster and sharpen you who are already on the same page, I admittedly write this self-motivated by a certain trepidation. On the very day the Lord called me to become a watchman in response to John Paul II, I opened my Bible to this Scripture:

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them, If I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and make him their watchman; and if he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows the trumpet and warns the people; then if any one who hears the sound of the trumpet does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head… But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes, and takes any one of them; that man is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand. (Ezekiel 33:1-6)

Moreover, when St. John Paul II called the youth to the watchman’s wall, he said:

The young have shown themselves to be for Rome and for the Church a special gift of the Spirit of God… I did not hesitate to ask them to make a radical choice of faith and life and present them with a stupendous task: to become “morning watchmen” at the dawn of the new millennium. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Novo Millennio Inuente, n.9

That is, the entire vision of the “end times” — the present and coming tribulations, the following Era of Peace, and then the final eschatological events, are not my own.[48] To “be for Rome and for the Church” is to be faithful and loyal to her teachings and to Sacred Tradition.

In that regard, after warning his readers of the coming of Antichrist and the strong delusion, St. Paul gave the Thessalonians the antidote, which I repeat to you, my dear readers:

So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter. Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word. (2 Thessalonians 2:15-17)

The Church now charges you before the Living God;
she declares to you the things concerning Antichrist before they arrive.
Whether they will happen in your time we know not,
or whether they will happen after you we know not;
but it is well that, knowing these things,
you should make yourself secure beforehand. 
—St. Cyril of Jerusalem (c. 315-386) Doctor of the Church, 
Catechetical Lectures, 
Lecture XV, n.9

It is arguably a type of Noah’s ark, as it carried the promise of a new heavens and earth after the Flood. See this homily of Benedict XVI on August 15, 2011: Also, from the Catechism of the Catholic Church: ‘Mary is full of grace because the Lord is with her. The grace with which she is filled is the presence of Him who is the source of all grace. “Rejoice . . . O Daughter of Jerusalem . . . the Lord your God is in your midst.” Mary, in whom the Lord himself has just made His dwelling, is the daughter of Zion in person, the ark of the covenant, the place where the glory of the Lord dwells. She is “the dwelling of God . . . with men.” Full of grace, Mary is wholly given over to Him who has come to dwell in her and whom she is about to give to the world.’ (n. 2676).

↑26“Characteristics Associated with Cults” from• The group displays an excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and belief system.• Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.• The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel.• The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself.• The group has a polarized, us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.• The leader is not accountable to any authorities.• The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group.• The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and control members. Often this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.• Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends.• The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.• Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members; cf. When Face to Face With Evil
↑27“There’s a mass psychosis. It’s akin to what happened in German society before and during World War II where normal, decent people were turned into aides and “just following orders” type of mentality that led to genocide. I see now that same paradigm happening.” (Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, MD, August 14th, 2021; 35:53, Stew Peters Show). “It’s a disturbia. It’s maybe a group neurosis. It is something that’s come over the minds of people all over the world. Whatever is going on is going on in the tiniest island in the Philippines and Indonesia, the smallest little village in Africa and South America. It’s all the same — it’s come over the entire world.” (Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, MPH, August 14th, 2021; 40:44, Perspectives on the Pandemic, Episode 19). “What the last year has really shocked me to the core about is that in the face of an invisible, apparently serious threat, rational discussion went out of the window… When we look back on the COVID era, I think it will be seen as other human responses to invisible threats in the past have been seen, as a time of mass hysteria.” (Dr. John Lee, Pathologist; Unlocked video; 41:00). “Mass formation psychosis… this is like hypnosis… This is what happened to the German people.” (Dr. Robert Malone, MD, inventor of mRNA vaccine technology Kristi Leigh TV; 4:54).  “I don’t normally use phrases like this, but I think we are standing at the very gates of Hell.” (Dr. Mike Yeadon, former Vice President and Chief Scientist of Respiratory and Allergies at Pfizer; 1:01:54, Following the Science?)

Posted on  by Mark

JESUS was born at night. Born at a time when tension filled the air. Born at a time very much like our own. How can this not fill us with hope?

A census had been called. Suddenly, everyone’s lives were up-ended, required to travel into a village, like Bethlehem, to be counted. What were the Romans up to? Why were they counting and tracking their populace? It was for the “common good”, right? Yet, we learn in the Old Testament that God is displeased with a census — but permits this as a chastisement of His people.[1]

Then Satan stood against Israel and incited David to number Israel. (1 Chron 21:1)

And then there was King Herod, alarmed by the reports of the birth of another king, one who could potentially displace him. Like the Egyptians, disturbed by the swelling presence and growth of the Israelites, Herod’s solution was not dissimilar: 

The Pharaoh of old, haunted by the presence and increase of the children of Israel, submitted them to every kind of oppression and ordered that every male child born of the Hebrew women was to be killed (cf. Ex 1:7-22). Today not a few of the powerful of the earth act in the same way. They too are haunted by the current demographic growth… Consequently, rather than wishing to face and solve these serious problems with respect for the dignity of individuals and families and for every person’s inviolable right to life, they prefer to promote and impose by whatever means a massive programme of birth control. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Evangelium Vitae, “The Gospel of Life”, n. 16

A massive programme of population control. (Watch: Protecting Your Holy Innocents). 

In the midst of such uncertainty and danger, Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph, born to all of us. In the midst of this night, the angels cried out a word of hope to those trying to be faithful, trying to live in God’s will and who were longing to see the Messiah’s face:

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased! (Luke 2:14)

Other translations say “on whom His favor rests” or “peace to men of good will.” Jesus came to bring everyone peace… but it only falls upon those of “good will,” those who want true peace — not the false “peace and security” that the Roman Empire (or the current empire) is offering (by way of “green passports”).[2] Rather, in our times, we hear Our Lord and Lady proclaiming all over the earth that an Era of Peace is coming after this night — a “new dawn,” the popes call it.[3] It is the ultimate fulfillment of the words spoken over John the Baptist who would herald this “morning star” about to rise in the world:

…through the tender mercy of our God… the day shall dawn upon us from on high to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. (Luke 1:78-79)

This “way of peace” is the “gift of living in the Divine Will”,[4] as revealed to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.

The time in which these writings will be made known is relative to and dependent on the disposition of souls who wish to receive so great a good, as well as on the effort of those who must apply themselves in being its trumpet-bearers by offering up the sacrifice of heralding in the new era of peace… —Jesus to Luisa, The Gift of Living in the Divine Will in the Writings of Luisa Piccarreta, n. 1.11.6, Rev. Joseph Iannuzzi

Listen! Your watchmen raise a cry, together they shout for joy, for they see directly, before their eyes, the LORD’s return to Zion. (Isaiah 52:8)

…watchmen who proclaim to the world a new dawn of hope, brotherhood and peace. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Address to the Guanelli Youth Movement, April 20th, 2002,

watchmen of the morning who announce the coming of the sun who is the Risen Christ! —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Message of the Holy Father to the Youth of the World, XVII World Youth Day, n. 3; (cf. Is 21:11-12)

The night, then, is not the moment of despair but anticipation. It is the hour of vigil, of watching and waiting for the coming of the Sun, who is the Risen Christ. The “signs of the times” are all around us for those with eyes to see, for those with ears willing to listen. The “woman clothed with the [rising] sun” is laboring to give birth again (Rev 12:1-2), this time to the whole Body of Christ[5] so that what Jesus accomplished in Himself may, at last, be accomplished in us, His Bride.[6] 

This Christmas night, some of my readers are locked down;[7] others are banned from Christmas Eve Mass[8] while others have seen their  Masses cancelled altogether.[9] But if the Son of God was excluded from the inn, then who is more in solidarity with you right now than Jesus Himself, who will come to you in a special way… to those of you of “good will” with “whom He is pleased”? Open your heart, then, as though it were another stable,[10] and welcome Jesus. Warm Him with your love, with your adoration, with taking a moment to look into His eyes and thanking Him for being your Savior. 

He has never left you, in fact.

Thanks to My Readers

This past year, two years actually, have been unlike any other in this ministry. My readership grew substantially, and with that, a multiplication of letters and correspondence. I am so sorry that I have not been able to respond to everyone. In fact, my son Levi (see photo) sat down to help us reply to those who sent letters and donations. And I have tried to do my best to respond to the thousands of emails I’ve received this past year… but of course, that has been an impossible task. And that is painful, because each of you are as important as the next person, and I don’t want you to think I am ignoring you. I read everything even though I physically cannot respond to everyone. How many times this month have I said to my family: if only there were three of me! (but I know one is enough for them!).

So I want to take this moment to thank all of you who have supported, prayed for, and encouraged this ministry. I want to thank those of you who stuck with me through the difficult task of exposing the lies behind this pandemic that is leading us into the “final confrontation.” It’s as exhausting to write about as I’m sure it is to read. But as Our Lady said,My children, do you not recognize the signs of the times? Do you not speak of them? —April 2nd, 2006, quoted in My Heart Will Triumph by Mirjana Soldo, p. 299And again,Only with total interior renunciation will you recognize God’s love and the signs of the time in which you live. You will be witnesses of these signs and will begin to speak about them. —March 18th, 2006, Ibid.

So I want to thank my assistant researcher, Wayne Labelle, who came on board this past year to manage “The Now Word – Signs” website at MeWe and “COVID “Vaccine” Victims and Research.” He has done a fabulous job weeding through “fake news” as we help keep readers abreast of world events — a trykt  exhausting job. Thanks to our Office Manager, Colette, for her tireless handling of inquiries, book and music sales, and everything else. And above all, my thanks to my wife, Lea, and my children for their patience and sacrifice. 

May God’s peace fall upon each of you and your families, to console and strengthen you in this Christmas Vigil as we await the coming of the Risen Sun.

Renaissance Fresco depicting the Massacre of the Innocents
in the Collegiata of San Gimignano, Italy

SOMETHING has gone terribly wrong when the very inventor of a technology, now in world-wide distribution, is calling for its immediate halt. In this sobering webcast, Mark Mallett and Christine Watkins share why doctors and scientists are warning, based on the newest data and studies, that injecting babies with an experimental gene therapy could leave them with severe disease in years to come… It amounts to one of the most crucial warnings we’ve given this year. The parallel to Herod’s attack on the Holy Innocents during this Christmas season is unmistakable.



Dr. Robert Malone, MD’s, statement:

My name is Robert Malone, and I am speaking to you as a parent, grandparent, physician and scientist. I don’t usually read from a prepared speech, but this is so important that I wanted to make sure that I get every single word and scientific fact correct.

I stand by this statement with a career dedicated to vaccine research and development. I’m vaccinated for COVID and I’m generally pro-vaccination. I have devoted my entire career to developing safe and effective ways to prevent and treat infectious diseases.

Before you inject your child – a decision that is irreversible – I wanted to let you know the scientific facts about this genetic vaccine, which is based on the mRNA vaccine technology I created:

There are three issues parents need to understand:

● The first is that a viral gene will be injected into your children’s cells. This gene forces your child’s body to make toxic spike proteins. These proteins often cause permanent damage in children’s critical organs, including

○ Their brain and nervous system

○ Their heart and blood vessels, including blood clots

○ Their reproductive system

○ And this vaccine can trigger fundamental changes to their immune system

● The most alarming point about this is that once these damages have occurred, they are irreparable

○ You can’t fix the lesions within their brain

○ You can’t repair heart tissue scarring

○ You can’t repair a genetically reset immune system, and

○ This vaccine can cause reproductive damage that could affect future generations of your family

● The second thing you need to know about is the fact that this novel technology has not been adequately tested.

○ We need at least 5 years of testing/research before we can really understand the risks

○ Harms and risks from new medicines often become revealed many years later

● Ask yourself if you want your own child to be part of the most radical medical experiment in human history

● One final point: the reason they’re giving you to vaccinate your child is a lie.

○ Your children represent no danger to their parents or grandparents

○ It’s actually the opposite. Their immunity, after getting COVID, is critical to save your family if not the world from this disease

In summary: there is no benefit for your children or your family to be vaccinating your children against the small risks of the virus, given the known health risks of the vaccine that as a parent, you and your children may have to live with for the rest of their lives.

The risk/benefit analysis isn’t even close.

As a parent and grandparent, my recommendation to you is to resist and fight to protect your children.

Come LORD Jesus

Invitatory Psalm
Psalm 99 (100)

“The Lord calls all those he has redeemed to sing a hymn of victory” (St Athanasius).

The Lord is close at hand: come, let us worship him.

The Lord is close at hand: come, let us worship him.

Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing for joy.

The Lord is close at hand: come, let us worship him.

Know that he, the Lord, is God.
He made us, we belong to him,
we are his people, the sheep of his flock.

The Lord is close at hand: come, let us worship him.

Go within his gates, giving thanks.
Enter his courts with songs of praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.

The Lord is close at hand: come, let us worship him.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,
eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age.

The Lord is close at hand: come, let us worship him.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

The Lord is close at hand: come, let us worship him.


O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

O come, now Wisdom from on high,
Who orders all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

O come, O come, now Lord of might,
Who to your tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times you gave the law,
In cloud, and majesty, and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Psalm 100 (101)
The declaration of a just ruler

“If you love me, keep my commandments” (Jn 14:15).

The Lord will come from his holy place to save his people.

My song is of mercy and justice;
I sing to you, O Lord.
I will walk in the way of perfection.
O when, Lord, will you come?

I will walk with blameless heart
within my house;
I will not set before my eyes
whatever is base.

I will hate the ways of the crooked;
they shall not be my friends.
The false-hearted must keep far away;
the wicked I disown.

The man who slanders his neighbour in secret
I will bring to silence.
The man of proud looks and haughty heart
I will never endure.

I look to the faithful in the land
that they may dwell with me.
He who walks in the way of perfection
shall be my friend.

No man who practises deceit
shall live within my house.
No man who utters lies shall stand
before my eyes.

Morning by morning I will silence
all the wicked in the land,
uprooting from the city of the Lord
all who do evil.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

The Lord will come from his holy place to save his people.


So that your people might walk in innocence, you came to us, Lord Jesus, and told us to be holy as your Father is holy. Help your children to love what is truly perfect, so that we may neither speak what is evil nor do what is wrong. Let us stand in your sight and celebrate with you the Father’s love and justice.

Daniel 3
Azariah’s prayer in the furnace

“Repent and turn to God, that your sins may be wiped out” (Acts 3:19).

Zion is our mighty citadel, our saving Lord its wall and its defense; throw open the gates, for the Lord is here among us, alleluia.

Blessed are you, and praiseworthy,
O Lord, the God of our fathers,
and glorious forever is your name.

For you are just in all you have done;
all your deeds are faultless, all your ways right,
and all your judgments proper.

For we have sinned and transgressed
by departing from you,
and we have done every kind of evil.

For your name’s sake, do not deliver us up forever,
or make void your covenant.

Do not take away your mercy from us,
for the sake of Abraham, your beloved,
Isaac your servant, and Israel your holy one,

To whom you promised to multiply their offspring
like the stars of heaven,
or the sand on the shore of the sea.

For we are reduced, O Lord, beyond any other nation,
brought low everywhere in the world this day
because of our sins.

We have in our day no prince, prophet, or leader,
no holocaust, sacrifice, oblation, or incense,
no place to offer first fruits, to find favor with you.

But with contrite heart and humble spirit
let us be received;
as though it were holocausts of rams and bullocks,
or thousands of fat lambs,
so let our sacrifice be in your presence today
as we follow you unreservedly;
for those who trust in you cannot be put to shame.

And now we follow you with our whole heart,
we fear you and we pray to you.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Zion is our mighty citadel, our saving Lord its wall and its defense; throw open the gates, for the Lord is here among us, alleluia.

Psalm 143 (144):1-10
For victory and peace

“I can do all things with the help of the One who gives me strength” (Phil 4:13).

Lord, make known your will throughout the earth; proclaim your salvation to every nation.

Blessed be the Lord, my rock,
who trains my arms for battle,
who prepares my hands for war.

He is my love, my fortress;
he is my stronghold, my saviour
my shield, my place of refuge.
He brings peoples under my rule.

Lord, what is man that you care for him,
mortal man, that you keep him in mind;
man, who is merely a breath
whose life fades like a shadow?

Lower your heavens and come down;
touch the mountains; wreathe them in smoke.
Flash your lightnings; rout the foe,
shoot your arrows and put them to flight.

Reach down from heaven and save me;
draw me out from the mighty waters,
from the hands of alien foes
whose mouths are filled with lies,
whose hands are raised in perjury.

To you, O God, will I sing a new song;
I will play on the ten-stringed harp
to you who give kings their victory,
who set David your servant free.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Lord, make known your will throughout the earth; proclaim your salvation to every nation.


Lord, God of strength, you gave your Son victory over death. Direct your Church’s fight against evil in the world. Clothe us with the weapons of light and unite us under the one banner of love, that we may receive our eternal reward after the battle of earthly life.

Short Reading
Isaiah 7:14-15

The maiden is with child and will soon give birth to a son whom she will call Immanuel. On curds and honey will he feed until he knows how to refuse evil and choose good.

The Messiah and the one who was sent before him

There is no need to be afraid; in five days our Lord will come to us.

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;
he has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty savior,
born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old,
that he would save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers
and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham,
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,
free to worship him without fear,
holy and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,
to give his people knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

There is no need to be afraid; in five days our Lord will come to us.

Prayers and intercessions

To Jesus Christ our Lord, who came among us in his mercy, let us constantly cry out with joy:
– Come, Lord Jesus!

You came from the Father to take on our human nature,
now set free what was harmed in us by sin.
– Come, Lord Jesus!

One day you will come again in glory to your chosen people,
come to us today and help us sinners to recognize your mercy and tender love.
– Come, Lord Jesus!

We glory in praising you, Lord Jesus,
come and bring us your salvation.
– Come, Lord Jesus!

Through faith you lead us into light,
may we reveal your justice through our deeds.
– Come, Lord Jesus!

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

hear the prayers of your people.
May we who celebrate the birth of your Son as man
rejoice in the gift of eternal life when he comes in glory,
for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.

May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.

Thought for the day

Conversation with Christ:

Lord, your birth this Christmas is the center and culmination of human history. I thank you for the gift of life, for the mission you have entrusted to me, for granting me the possibility of recovering my dignity, and for adopting me as your child. I know my weakness and the mire I am capable of descending into—but for the help of your grace. I offer you this day and every day of my life as a gift of love to you. May this gift be always pleasing in your sight.


Today I will examine my conscience and prepare my soul to make a good confession, so that my heart might be a worthy dwelling for the baby Jesus who is coming.



Block 7th

It’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that when God could have done anything (or nothing at all), he chose to use the most helpless of things to save us: a baby. God used a purely human baby and would have to live a purely human life before dying an awful death for us. Like we saw in yesterday’s message, God is in the business of using the ordinary. The things we so readily discount. God has done miraculous things, but this way of coming to save us seems pretty common when you strip it down to bare bones. And I think that’s the point. I think God wanted to let us know that he was willing to jump through hoops and hurdles for us, even if we wouldn’t do the same for him. When the angel arrives at the shepherds, he first tells them a most important command: do not be afraid. I need this message so often in my own life. Even when I know God is good and good to me, I still find myself overly fearful of things I cannot control. I risk not being present in the moment because I am so afraid of what might happen next.But the angel goes on to tell them there was good news coming for all people. Not some people. Not selective people. Not the people who did it all right. But all people. And that good news was that God was changing the story. You see, he initially worked through Moses to deliver the Law to the people. And the Law functioned as the old covenant. Jesus comes down to earth in human form, and he redefines this covenant. The Law still exists, but the terms change suddenly. What was once a rigid law-based covenant becomes something different: a covenant built on grace. God uses Jesus to establish a covenant with us, his people. He’s the middle man. He’s the missing piece from the Old Testament. Now, if you study a covenant, you will realize it does not function as a contract. A covenant is a promise made by one party, and it still stands no matter how the other party manages to mess it up. It does not expire. God binds himself into this agreement, and there are no contingency plans associated with it. By saying yes to Jesus (and yes, that’s all it takes), we thrust ourselves into a right relationship with God, and nothing we can do or say can ever break that. Growing up and grappling with my faith, I found this hard to believe. Because we are so used to human contracts over eternal covenants, it’s understandable why we might think we could fall out of right-standing with God. That we could be do something to mess it up or make it all go south. That our choices could make God walk away from us. But this is why the angel calls it “good news” for all people. Because it’s different from what anyone had ever known, and it meant to fill people with hope and peace and promise. Jesus is not a rigid contract that we need to follow line by line. He is a grace-filled promise that guarantees we will mess up the terms, and he will still want us. This is the very essence of Christmas. Christmas symbolizes the beginning of a better story– a chance to live in a relationship with God for the first time since Eden, all because of a baby crying out in the middle of the night. It seems so ordinary.I’m tempted to add rules and regulations.But I know that’s not the point for you and me.We need to grab and hold tight to the real thing God is trying to show all of us: You cannot lose my love.You cannot fall away from me and make me want you less.You cannot do or say a single thing that will make me turn my back on you.I am after you.I am searching for you always.I am rejoicing in you and all the ways you are made. You are more than enough for me. You are more than enough for this story I placed you in.You are not an accident, sweet thing. I am so pleased with you, and there’s not a single thing you could ever do to change that. This is my promise– to never turn away from you. READING Luke 2:8-10 STEAL THIS PRAYER Dear God, you never turn your back on me. I don’t deserve it but thank you, thank you, thank you.

A Response to Jimmy Akin

Mark Mallett

The popular Catholic apologetics website known as “Catholic Answers” has published an article by Jimmy Akin that examines the content of Countdown to the Kingdom. Readers have asked us to respond to his critique that questions our claims that the “Timeline” on this website is based on four principal sources: (1) the Church Fathers, (2) magisterial teachings of popes, (3) the apparitions at Fatima, and (4) a “prophetic consensus” of credible seers. On the Church Fathers, Mr. Akin claims that “Countdown to the Kingdom has selected its preferred points of interpretation while ignoring others”; that the “Magisterial teachings on prophecy are minimal, and the popes have not provided teachings supporting the Countdown timeline”; that the interpretation of Fatima “offered by the Magisterium holds that it dealt with events in the twentieth century, not events in our future”; and that the seers providing a “prophetic consensus” of the aforementioned are not “approved” and therefore are unreliable. “In view of these facts,” says Mr. Akin, “I consider Countdown to the Kingdom to be a website that presents a highly sensationalistic, speculative, and unlikely prophetic scenario that is put together from scattered pieces of information and interpretations that the authors favor.”

While I have never personally dialogued with Jimmy Akin, I have the highest regard for his work in apologetics and have nothing but praise overall for Catholic Answers. I spent several days in Rome with their Senior Apologist, Tim Staples, as we discussed everything from the Pope to private revelation. If you are new to the Catholic Faith, I wholly encourage you to explore their website and seek answers to your questions on Catholic fundamentals.Please read the article below for a full response to Mr. Akin’s article. Some of its main points, however, can be summarized as follows:

  • A recurring theme — if not the predominant exhortation — of this website is that the faithful should have no fear of the times ahead. Whoever contacted Mr. Akin expressing fear as a result of this website must have read very little of its contents. We addressed this false assertion in A Response to Patrick Madridanother contributor to Catholic Answers. 
  • Neither Countdown to the Kingdom (CTTK) nor any of its current or past contributors have ever said or implied that the end of the world is imminent. Each, on the contrary, has repeatedly and specifically said the opposite.
  • The “prophetic consensus” of private revelation — on impending Chastisements and a glorious Era of Peace to follow — is testified to repeatedly throughout over a century of Papal Magisterium. For Mr. Akin to refer to this Magisterium as “scant” or as “not supporting the Countdown Timeline” is simply untrue.
  • There is a strong consensus among the Church Fathers on the timeline of events, contrary to what Mr. Akin asserts.
  • Fr. Michel Rodrigue’s messages, as well as those of Fr. Stefano Gobbi, are not condemned by the Church; these are facts, not “implausible” assertions. 

The Timeline

At issue in much of Mr. Akin’s article is the Timeline posted on CTTK. Contrary to his assumption that it is “put together from scattered pieces of information and interpretations”, it is directly lifted from a straightforward reading of Chapters 19 – 20 of Revelation and precisely how several Church Fathers explained it. This same Timeline is laid out in my book The Final Confrontationwhich received the Nihil Obstat in 2020. 

The Timeline is also self-evident that the “end of the world” is not imminent, as Mr. Akin seems to think we are saying. No one or any message here has said as much in our videos, books, and a multitude of posts. However, Heaven has repeatedly told us that we have been living in a “time of mercy” and that “time is short” as we approach the end of this era. Take the approved messages to St. Faustina, for example: 

Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy.  —Jesus to St. Faustina, Divine Mercy in My Soul, Diary, n. 848 

And again,

You will prepare the world for My final coming. —Jesus to St. Faustina, Divine Mercy in My Soul, Diary, n. 429

…hear the voice of the Spirit speaking to the whole Church of our time, which is the time of mercy—POPE FRANCIS, Vatican City, March 6th, 2014,

Pope Benedict puts Faustina’s message into perspective:

If one took this statement in a chronological sense, as an injunction to get ready, as it were, immediately for the Second Coming, it would be false. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Light of the World, A Conversation with Peter Seewald, p. 180-181

As the successor to Peter explains in the same interview as well as other statements, there is yet to come, for example, the “Triumph of the Immaculate Heart.” In fact, contrary to Mr. Akin’s assertion in his article that the events of Fatima are confined to the past century, Benedict XVI stated:

…we would be mistaken to think that the prophetic mission of Fatima is complete. —Homily, May 13th, 2010, Fatima, Portugal; Catholic News Agency

But what does the “Triumph of the Immaculate Heart” mean? According to Benedict (who then went on to pray for the hastening of “the fulfillment of the prophecy of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary”), it is…

…equivalent in meaning to our praying for the coming of God’s Kingdom… Light of the World, p. 166, A Conversation With Peter Seewald

Eight years before, the Marian pope, St. John Paul II, prayed for the same:

This is our great hope and our invocation, ‘Your Kingdom come!’—a Kingdom of peace, justice and serenity, which will re-establish the original harmony of creation. —ST. POPE JOHN PAUL II, General Audience, November 6th, 2002, Zenit

Herein lies the hermeneutical key to understanding the Timeline, indeed, the Scriptures themselves: the coming of the Kingdom as understood here is not the end of the world, as many evangelical preachers presume and even some Catholic authors have proposed. Rather, it is the fulfillment of the “Our Father” in which the Divine Will is to reign “on earth as it is in Heaven.”[1] In some circles of Catholic theology, this is known as an “Era of Peace”. Cardinal Mario Luigi Ciappi, papal theologian for Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, and John Paul II stated:

Yes, a miracle was promised at Fatima, the greatest miracle in the history of the world, second only to the Resurrection. And that miracle will be an era of peace, which has never really been granted before to the world. —October 9th, 1994, The Apostolate’s Family Catechism, p. 35

Cardinal Raymond Burke explains why:

…in Christ is realized the right order of all things, the union of heaven and earth, as God the Father intended from the beginning. It is the obedience of God the Son Incarnate which reestablishes, restores, the original communion of man with God and, therefore, peace in the world. His obedience unites once again all things, ‘things in heaven and things on earth.’ —Cardinal Raymond Burke, speech in Rome; May 18th, 2018;

When Christ’s perfect obedience becomes ours, then the Our Father will be fulfilled on earth:

…every day in the prayer of the Our Father we ask the Lord: “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt 6:10)…. we recognize that “heaven” is where the will of God is done, and that “earth” becomes “heaven”—i.e., the place of the presence of love, of goodness, of truth and of divine beauty—only if on earth the will of God is done. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, General Audience, February 1st, 2012, Vatican City

The Messages and Messengers

Mr. Akin states,

The [Countdown] website does not show evidence that the authors have conducted detailed investigations of the seers they recommend or, if they have, that they properly applied critical thinking to their cases and objectively weighed the evidence.

On the contrary, our translator Peter Bannister, MTh, MPhil has studied hundreds of seers throughout the world, interviewed some, and read thousands of pages of prophetic revelations. He is perhaps one of the most versed theologians on private revelation in our times. I have also personally interviewed some the seers on this website, often positing difficult questions. We have also published numerous articles here or linked to our own websites explaining how the Church discerns prophecy and teaches us to approach it: for example, see Prophecy in Perspective. I can also testify that there are often vigorous and rich theological debates behind the scenes and frequent discussions on the best wording chosen in a translation, as languages do not always commute perfectly between each other. We have also provided a biographical page of each seer providing their ecclesiastical status and other pertinent information. In other words, we take St. Paul’s admonitions to “test prophecy” seriously rather than “despise” it (cf. 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21).

Mr. Akin further asserts that we have chosen seers who are not approved by the Church. On the contrary, nearly every seer here has some form of ecclesiastical approval to one degree or another: the seers of Heede, Germany (approved); Luz de Maria (writings approved); Alicja Lenczewska (Imprimatur); Jennifer (endorsed by the late Fr. Seraphim Michaelenko and after submission to John Paul II, a Vatican representative told her to “Spread the messages to the world any way you can”); St. Faustina (approved); Pedro Regis (broad support from his bishop); Simona and Angela (active theological commission); seers of Medjugorje (first seven apparitions approved by the Ruini Commission; awaiting final word from the Pope); Marco Ferrari (met with several popes; still under a theological commission); Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta (full approval); Fr. Stefano Gobbi (Imprimatur); Elizabeth Kindelmann (approved by Cardinal Péter Erdő); Valeria Copponi (supported by the late Fr. Gabriel Amorth; no official declaration); Fr. Ottavio Michelini was a priest and mystic (member of the Papal Court of Pope St. Paul VI); Servant of God Cora Evans (approved)… and there are more.  

However, Mr. Akin’s argument that a seer should only be considered believable if they are “approved” is not supported by either Scripture or Church teaching. For one, the Magisterium can sometimes take decades if not centuries to make any formal judgment on private revelation – if at all. Second, St. Paul’s instructions to the Christian community on prophecy were not that complex:

Two or three prophets should speak, and the others discern. But if a revelation is given to another person sitting there, the first one should be silent. For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged. Indeed, the spirits of prophets are under the prophets’ control, since he is not the God of disorder but of peace. (1 Cor 14:29-33)

While this can often be practiced on the spot regarding the regular exercise of prophecy in a community, when supernatural phenomena are accompanied, a deeper investigation by the Church into the supernatural character of such revelations may be necessary. This may or may not take some time.

Today, more than in the past, news of these apparitions is diffused rapidly among the faithful thanks to the means of information (mass media). Moreover, the ease of going from one place to another fosters frequent pilgrimages, so that Ecclesiastical Authority should discern quickly about the merits of such matters.

On the other hand, modern mentality and the requirements of critical scientific investigation render it more difficult, if not almost impossible, to achieve with the required speed the judgments that in the past concluded the investigation of such matters (constat de supernaturalitatenon constat de supernaturalitate) and that offered to the Ordinaries the possibility of authorizing or prohibiting public cult or other forms of devotion among the faithful. — Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, “Norms Regarding the Manner of Proceeding in the Discernment of Presumed Apparitions or Revelations” n. 2,

It is also clear that Heaven doesn’t wait for canonical investigations. Usually, God provides sufficient evidence for belief in messages that are especially intended for a larger audience. Hence, Pope Benedict XIV said:

Are they to whom a revelation is made, and who are certain it comes from God, bound to give a firm assent thereto? The answer is in the affirmative… —Heroic Virtue, Vol III, p.390

As for the rest of the Body of Christ, he goes on to say:

He to whom that private revelation is proposed and announced, ought to believe and obey the command or message of God, if it be proposed to him on sufficient evidence… For God speaks to him, at least by means of another, and therefore requires him to believe; hence it is, that he is bound to believe God, Who requires him to do so. —Ibid. p. 394

Regarding two seers specifically, Mr. Akin states:

Fr. Rodrigue also predicted that a series of dramatic, apocalyptic events—including a Third World War, the martyrdom of Pope Francis, and an ecumenical council being called by Pope Emeritus Benedict—would begin in October 2020.

There have been many erroneous statements on websites, including in a letter from his bishop, that Fr. Michel made such claims. On the contrary, in a letter to his supporters dated March 26, 2020, Fr. Michel simply wrote the following:

My dear people of God, we are now passing a test. The great events of purification will begin this fall. Be ready with the Rosary to disarm Satan and to protect our people. Make sure that you are in the state of grace by having made your general confession to a Catholic priest. The spiritual battle will begin. Remember these words: The month of the Rosary will see great things. the case of Fr. Michel Rodrigue, there has been no formal commission, decree or directive — only a public distancing of the bishop from the messages (see On Bishop Lemay’s Open Letter of September 3rd). Mr. Akin feels we are contradicting our website’s statement to follow the Church’s “formal declarations” on private revelation by continuing to leave Fr. Michel on our website. We take very seriously the careful procedures and guidelines bishops are to follow in the discernment of prophecy. If there is not a formal declaration against a credible alleged apparition or locution, then the faithful are still permitted to cautiously and prudently approach said revelations — and especially so when we see the kinds of overwhelmingly positive fruits we have seen and heard in those who have watched Fr. Michel’s videos. A negative opinion is simply not the same as a negative decree. For instance, in the case of Medjugorje, the Vatican made clear that the local bishop’s negative ruling at one point was to be considered his “personal opinion”, as the jurisdiction over the apparitions had shifted to Rome.[2] Regarding the late Fr. Stefano Gobbi, Mr. Akin writes: “Fr. Gobbi had a track record of false predictions. In 1995, he predicted that Christ would return in glory in the year 2000 to establish the new heavens and the new earth.” Here is what Fr. Gobbi wrote:

I confirm to you that, by the great Jubilee of the year two thousand, there will take place the triumph of my Immaculate Heart, of which I foretold you at Fatima, and this will come to pass with the return of Jesus in glory, to establish his Reign in the world. Thus you will at last be able to see with your own eyes the new heavens and the new earth. To The Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons, U.S. National Headquarters of the MMP [1995], n. 532

And again in message 389 given in 1988:

In this period of ten years there will come to completion that fullness of time which was pointed out to you by me… In this period of ten years there will come to completion the time of the great tribulation, which has been foretold to you in Holy Scripture, before the second coming of Jesus. In this period of ten years the mystery of iniquity, prepared for by the ever-increasing spread of apostasy, will become manifest. In this period of ten years all the secrets which I have revealed to some of my children will come to pass and all the events which have been foretold to you by me will take place.

Mr. Akin then links to an article on Catholic Answers that wrongly and grievously casts Fr. Gobbi’s writings into heresy. We direct you to a letter by the former Director of the MMP that accurately explains the theology of Fr. Gobbi’s writings that are consistent with the Church Fathers and their theological development. See: “In Defense of the Orthodoxy of The Marian Movement of Priests”

As for Fr. Gobbi’s predictions above, have these prophecies, which continue to reflect what is unfolding in our times, simply been delayed as we have seen occur even in the Scriptures (eg. Jonah 3:10)? Or did Fr. Gobbi interject his own thoughts somehow and simply get it wrong? 

Such occasional occurrences of flawed prophetic habit should not lead to the condemnation of the entire body of the supernatural knowledge communicated by the prophet, if it is properly discerned to constitute authentic prophecy. —Dr. Mark Miravalle, Private Revelation: Discerning With the Church, page 21

Indeed, the spiritual director to both Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta and the seer of La Salette, Melanie Calvat, warned:

Conforming to prudence and sacred accuracy, people cannot deal with private revelations as if they were canonical books or decrees of the Holy See… For example, who could ratify in full all the visions of Catherine Emmerich and St. Brigitte, which show evident discrepancies? —St. Hannibal, in a letter to Fr. Peter Bergamaschi who had published all the unedited writings of Benedictine mystic, St. M. Cecilia 

However, perhaps Our Lady herself offered an explanation in Fr. Gobbi’s messages:

This is what I want to tell you. Do not, therefore, limit yourselves to the predictions which I give you, seeking to understand the times you are living in. As a Mother, I am telling you about the dangers you are facing, the threats which are hanging over you, the evils which could befall you, only because this evil can still be avoided by you, the dangers can be escaped, the design of God’s Justice, can still be changed by the power of His merciful Love. Even when I foretell punishment to you, remember that everything can be changed in a moment by the power of your prayer and of your penance, which makes reparation. So do not say “What you foretold to us did not come true!”, but thank the Heavenly Father with me because, through the response of prayer and consecration, through your suffering, through the immense suffering of so many of my poor children, He has again put off the time of Justice, to allow the time of great Mercy to flower. —January 21st, 1984; To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons

Here again, there has been no formal decree against Fr. Gobbi’s writings. A secretary from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), in a “personal and unofficial letter”, advised Fr. Gobbi that the CDF considered his writings to be “private meditations.”[3] However, to this day, there is no formal documentation to verify any such decision by the Congregation.

On the Church Fathers

Mr. Akin asserts that…

…the Church Fathers did not inherit a single interpretation of the book of Revelation. There were very few commentaries written on it in the patristic period, views on the book diverged widely, and Countdown to the Kingdom has selected its preferred points of interpretation while ignoring others.

The evidence is quite the opposite, actually. The Church Fathers most affirmatively did not “diverge widely” on their view of the proper interpretation of the Book of Revelation. Almost all of them believed firmly that it promised “the times of the kingdom” on earth, within history, during its final “millennium” – before Christ’s final coming in the flesh. It is precisely through this interim “coming of the Kingdom” that the Church will be sanctified and prepared so that Our Lord Jesus “might present to himself the church in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish” (Eph 5:27). Another term for this Era of Peace[4] is a “middle coming” of Christ in Spirit:

Whereas people had previously spoken only of a twofold coming of Christ—once in Bethlehem and again at the end of time—Saint Bernard of Clairvaux spoke of an adventus medius, an intermediate coming, thanks to which he periodically renews His intervention in history. I believe that Bernard’s distinction strikes just the right note… —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Light of the World, p.182-183, A Conversation With Peter Seewald

This is what St. Bernard said:

Because this [middle] coming lies between the other two, it is like a road on which we travel from the first coming to the last. In the first, Christ was our redemption; in the last, he will appear as our life; in this middle coming, he is our rest and consolation.…. In his first coming Our Lord came in our flesh and in our weakness; in this middle coming he comes in spirit and power; in the final coming he will be seen in glory and majesty… —St. Bernard, Liturgy of the Hours, Vol I, p. 169

Indeed, the Early Church Fathers frequently spoke of a coming “sabbath rest” for the Church.[5] In fact, they claimed that this period of rest for the Church, the “times of the kingdom”, as Irenaeus called them,[6] were precisely the “thousand years” spoken of by St. John after the death of the Antichrist or “beast”.

Scripture says: ‘And God rested upon the seventh day from all His works’… And in six days created things were completed; it is evident, therefore, that they will come to an end at the sixth thousand year [after Adam]… But when The Antichrist shall have devastated all things in this world, he will reign for three years and six months, and sit in the temple at Jerusalem; and then the Lord will come from Heaven in the clouds… sending this man and those who follow him into the lake of fire; but bringing in for the righteous the times of the kingdom, that is, the rest, the hallowed seventh day… These are to take place in the times of the kingdom, that is, upon the seventh day… the true Sabbath of the righteous… Those who saw John, the Lord’s disciple, [tell us] that they heard from him how the Lord taught and spoke about these times…  —St. Irenaeus of Lyons, Church Father (140–202 A.D.); Adversus Haereses, Irenaeus of Lyons, V.33.3.4, The Fathers of the Church, CIMA Publishing Co.; (St. Irenaeus was a student of St. Polycarp, who knew and learned from the Apostle John and was later consecrated bishop of Smyrna by John.)

Irenaeus is referring to Church Father Papias, who was a disciple of St. John according to the Vatican’s own documentation:

Papias by name, of Herapolis, a disciple dear to John… copied the Gospel faithfully under John’s dictation. —Codex Vaticanus Alexandrinus, Nr. 14 Bibl. Lat. Opp. I., Romae, 1747, p.344

And St. Justin Martyr wrote:

A man among us named John, one of Christ’s Apostles, received and foretold that the followers of Christ would dwell in Jerusalem for a thousand years, and that afterwards the universal and, in short, everlasting resurrection and judgment would take place…. Now… we understand that a period of one thousand years is indicated in symbolic language. —St. Justin Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, Ch. 81, The Fathers of the Church, Christian Heritage

This “seventh day” is not eternity but this interim “coming of the Kingdom” before the eternal “eighth day”:

…when His Son will come and destroy the time of the lawless one and judge the godless, and change the sun and the moon and the stars—then He shall indeed rest on the seventh day… after giving rest to all things, I will make the beginning of the eighth day, that is, the beginning of another world. —Letter of Barnabas (70-79 A.D.), written by a second century Apostolic Father

Again, Mr. Akin suggests that we are cherry-picking the Fathers in this regard. He is no doubt referring to the oft-cited quotation of St. Augustine who claimed that the “thousand years” in Revelation 20 is “an equivalent for the whole duration of this world.” However, Augustine was explicit that this was his personal opinion “…so far as occurs to me…”.[7] In fact, Augustine gave three interpretations to this passage, including one that was fully consonant with previous Church Fathers while avoiding the heresy of millenarianism,[8] which taught that Jesus would return in the flesh to reign on earth during these “times of the kingdom.” Instead, said both Tertullian[9] and Augustine, this would be a period of “spiritual blessings”:

…as if it were a fit thing that the saints should thus enjoy a kind of Sabbath-rest during that period, a holy leisure after the labors of six thousand years since man was created… (and) there should follow on the completion of six thousand years, as of six days, a kind of seventh-day Sabbath in the succeeding thousand years… And this opinion would not be objectionable, if it were believed that the joys of the saints, in that Sabbath, shall be spiritual, and consequent on the presence of God… —St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 A.D.; Church Doctor), De Civitate Dei, Bk. XX, Ch. 7, Catholic University of America Press

Neither does this fulfillment of the “Our Father”, which Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta calls “the gift of living in the Divine Will”, constitute the definitive fulfillment of the Kingdom of God…

…since the idea of a definitive intra-historical fulfillment fails to take into account the permanent openness of history and of human freedom, for which failure is always a possibility. —Cardinal Ratzinger (POPE BENEDICT XVI) Eschatology: Death and Eternal Life, Catholic University of America Press, p. 213

Indeed, as the Scriptures indicate, after this “thousand years”, which the Church Fathers also called “the Day of the Lord”,[10] there is one last final revolt (Rev 20:7-10) — Gog and Magog, who are a type of the Beast and False Prophet who assaulted the Church before the Era of Peace.

We shall indeed be able to interpret the words, “The priest of God and of Christ shall reign with Him a thousand years; and when the thousand years shall be finished, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison;” for thus they signify that the reign of the saints and the bondage of the devil shall cease simultaneously… so in the end they shall go out who do not belong to Christ, but to that last Antichrist… —St. Augustine, The Anti-Nicene Fathers, City of God, Book XX, Chap. 13, 19

The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven. God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 677

Hence, the website Countdown to the Kingdom exists to exhort souls to pray for and prepare for these final eschatological events, which may or may not culminate completely within in our lifetimes.

Why not ask him to send us new witnesses of his presence today, in whom he himself will come to us? And this prayer, while it is not directly focused on the end of the world, is nevertheless a real prayer for his coming; it contains the full breadth of the prayer that he himself taught us: “Your kingdom come!” Come, Lord Jesus! —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Jesus of Nazareth, Holy Week: From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection, p. 292, Ignatius Press

This gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14)

On Magisterial Authority

Mr. Akin claims in his article that:

Magisterial teachings on prophecy are minimal, and the popes have not provided teachings supporting the Countdown timeline. They only provide teachings about points common to every orthodox Catholic view of prophecy (e.g., there will be a Second Coming).

The evidence couldn’t be more contrary. First, consider the words of John Paul II shortly before being raised to the seat of Peter:

We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through… We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel, of Christ versus the anti-Christ… It is a trial… of 2,000 years of culture and Christian civilization, with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations. —Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (JOHN PAUL II ), at the Eucharistic Congress, Philadelphia, PA; August 13, 1976; cf. Catholic Online (confirmed by Deacon Keith Fournier who was in attendance)

In none of John Paul II’s teachings does he ever suggest the “end of the world” is at hand. He, too, anticipated the coming of the Kingdom in a new modality, what he called a “coming new and divine holiness”,[11] a “new Springtime” or “new Pentecost”.[12] Summarizing Sacred Tradition, nineteenth-century writer Fr. Charles Arminjon (1824-1885) stated:

…if we study but a moment the signs of the present time, the menacing symptoms of our political situation and revolutions, as well as the progress of civilization and the increasing advance of evil, corresponding to the progress of civilization and the discoveries in the material order, we cannot fail to foresee the proximity of the coming of the man of sin, and of the days of desolation foretold by Christ… The most authoritative view, and the one that appears to be most in harmony with Holy Scripture, is that, after the fall of the Antichrist, the Catholic Church will once again enter upon a period of prosperity and triumph.   The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life, Fr. Charles Arminjon (1824-1885), p. 56-58; Sophia Institute Press

From Leo XIII to the present Pope, they have consistently spoken in terms that indeed indicate both the coming trials as well as triumph. 

There is a great uneasiness at this time in the world and in the Church, and that which is in question is the faith. It so happens now that I repeat to myself the obscure phrase of Jesus in the Gospel of St. Luke: ‘When the Son of Man returns, will He still find faith on the earth?’…I sometimes read the Gospel passage of the end times and I attest that, at this time, some signs of this end are emerging. —POPE PAUL VI, The Secret Paul VI, Jean Guitton, p. 152-153, Reference (7), p. ix.

…he who resists the truth through malice and turns away from it, sins most grievously against the Holy Ghost. In our days this sin has become so frequent that those dark times seem to have come which were foretold by St. Paul, in which men, blinded by the just judgment of God, should take falsehood for truth, and should believe in “the prince of this world,” who is a liar and the father thereof, as a teacher of truth: “God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying (2 Thess. ii., 10). In the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error and the doctrines of devils” (1 Tim. iv., 1). —POPE LEO XIII, Divinum Illud Munus, n. 10

When all this is considered there is good reason to fear lest this great perversity may be as it were a foretaste, and perhaps the beginning of those evils which are reserved for the last days; and that there may be already in the world the “Son of Perdition” of whom the Apostle speaks. —POPE ST. PIUS X, E Supremi, Encyclical On the Restoration of All Things in Christ, n. 3, 5; October 4th, 1903

Certainly, those days would seem to have come upon us of which Christ Our Lord foretold: “You shall hear of wars and rumours of wars—for nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom (Matt 24:6-7). —POPE BENEDICT XV, Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum, November 1, 1914

And thus, even against our will, the thought rises in the mind that now those days draw near of which Our Lord prophesied: “And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold” (Matt. 24:12). —POPE PIUS XI, Miserentissimus Redemptor, Encyclical on Reparation to the Sacred Heart, n. 17 

Like Pius X, he too foresaw, particularly in the spread of Communism, foreshadowings of the coming of Antichrist:[13]

These things in truth are so sad that you might say that such events foreshadow and portend the “beginning of sorrows,” that is to say of those that shall be brought by the man of sin,  “who is lifted up above all that is called God or is worshiped” (2 Thes 2:4). —Miserentissimus Redemptor, Encyclical Letter on Reparation to the Sacred Heart, May 8th, 1928

Here, we are providing a fraction of the magisterial statements on our present times: see Why Aren’t the Popes Shouting?

On the coming Triumph, magisterial and ecclesiastical teaching are not lacking either. 

…a hope in some mighty triumph of Christ here on earth before the final consummation of all things. Such an occurrence is not excluded, is not impossible, it is not all certain that there will not be a prolonged period of triumphant Christianity before the end… If before that final end there is to be a period, more or less prolonged, of triumphant sanctity, such a result will be brought about not by the apparition of the person of Christ in Majesty but by the operation of those powers of sanctification which are now at work, the Holy Ghost and the Sacraments of the Church. —The Teaching of the Catholic Church: A Summary of Catholic Doctrine [London: Burns Oates & Washbourne, 1952] p. 1140

Your divine commandments are broken, your Gospel is thrown aside, torrents of iniquity flood the whole earth carrying away even your servants… Will everything come to the same end as Sodom and Gomorrah? Will you never break your silence? Will you tolerate all this for ever? Is it not true that your will must be done on earth as it is in heaven? Is it not true that your kingdom must come? Did you not give to some souls, dear to you, a vision of the future renewal of the Church? —St. Louis de Montfort, Prayer for Missionaries, n. 5;

Out from the mournful groans of sorrow, from the very depths of the heart-rending anguish of oppressed individuals and countries there arises an aura of hope. To an ever-increasing number of noble souls there comes the thought, the will, ever clearer and stronger, to make of this world, this universal upheaval, a starting point for a new era of far-reaching renovation, the complete reorganization of the world. —POPE PIUS XII, Christmas Radio Message, 1944

[John Paul II] does indeed cherish a great expectation that the millennium of divisions will be followed by a millennium of unifications… that all the catastrophes of our century, all its tears, as the Pope says, will be caught up at the end and turned into a new beginning.  —Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (POPE BENEDICT XVI), Salt of the Earth, An Interview With Peter Seewald, p. 237

After purification through trial and suffering, the dawn of a new era is about to break. —POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II, General Audience, September 10, 2003

God loves all men and women on earth and gives them the hope of a new era, an era of peace… The Great Jubilee is inseparably linked to this message of love and reconciliation, a message which gives voice to the truest aspirations of humanity today.  —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Message of Pope John Paul II for the Celebration of the World Day of Peace, January 1, 2000

But even this night in the world shows clear signs of a dawn that will come, of a new day receiving the kiss of a new and more resplendent sun… A new resurrection of Jesus is necessary: a true resurrection, which admits no more lordship of death… In individuals, Christ must destroy the night of mortal sin with the dawn of grace regained. In families, the night of indifference and coolness must give way to the sun of love. In factories, in cities, in nations, in lands of misunderstanding and hatred the night must grow bright as the day, nox sicut dies illuminabitur, and strife will cease and there will be peace. —POPE PIUX XII, Urbi et Orbi address,March 2nd, 1957;

May there dawn for everyone the time of peace and freedom, the time of truth, of justice and of hope. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Radio message, Vatican City, 1981

“And they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold and one shepherd.” May God… shortly bring to fulfillment His prophecy for transforming this consoling vision of the future into a present reality… It is God’s task to bring about this happy hour and to make it known to all… When it does arrive, it will turn out to be a solemn hour, one big with consequences not only for the restoration of the Kingdom of Christ, but for the pacification of… the world. We pray most fervently, and ask others likewise to pray for this much-desired pacification of society. —POPE PIUS XI, Ubi Arcani dei Consilioi “On the Peace of Christ in his Kingdom”, December 23, 1922

Oh! when in every city and village the law of the Lord is faithfully observed, when respect is shown for sacred things, when the Sacraments are frequented, and the ordinances of Christian life fulfilled, there will certainly be no more need for us to labor further to see all things restored in Christ… And then? Then, at last, it will be clear to all that the Church, such as it was instituted by Christ, must enjoy full and entire liberty and independence from all foreign dominion…  “He shall break the heads of his enemies,” that all may know “that God is the king of all the earth,” “that the Gentiles may know themselves to be men.” All this, Venerable Brethren, We believe and expect with unshakable faith. —POPE PIUS X, E Supremi, Encyclical “On the Restoration of All Things”, n.14, 6-7

Again, these are just a fraction of the statements made by the Magisterium. See The Popes, and the Dawning Era and Dear Holy Father… He is Coming!. 

We hope this response will continue the cordial dialogue between us and Jimmy Akin, especially as the Catholic world is shrinking and unity in the Body of Christ is more threatened than ever.

Do not despise the words of prophets,
but test everything;
hold fast to what is good…

(1 Thessalonians 5:20-21)
