WOKE VS AWAKE

Posted on  by Mark

WE are living today through a remarkable fulfillment of Sacred Scripture, particularly in the form of a mass denial of truth.

…that which is in question is the faith… 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.

A key sign of the times, wrote Pope Leo XIII, is the resistance to truth:

…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. 2:10). In the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error and the doctrines of devils.” (1 Tim. 4:1). —Divinum Illud Munus, n. 10

And at least a shadow, a typical image of the last times is coming over the world. —St. John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890 A.D.), sermon at opening of St. Bernard’s Seminary, October 2, 1873, The Infidelity of the Future

Other translations phrase the “operation of error” as such:

…because they refused to love the truth and so be saved… God sends upon them a strong delusion[1] to make them believe what is false… (2 Thessalonians 2:11)

The inescapable context of all of the above is that we have entered the proximate period of the coming of the Antichrist, or “lawless one.” 

…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

Prior to the revelation of this “man of sin” would be what St. Paul called an “apostasy”, “rebellion”, or “revolt”, depending upon the translation.[2] It is a rejection of Truth — when good will be called evil, and evil, good. Early Church Father, Lactantius (c. 250 – c. 325), gives a prescient description of the present hour…

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…  —The Divine Institutes, Book VII, Ch. 17

Fast forward some 1700 years, and Pope Benedict XVI essentially confirms Lactantius’ prophecy by comparing our times to the collapse of the Roman Empire when “key principles of law and of the fundamental moral attitudes underpinning them burst open the dams which until that time had protected peaceful coexistence among peoples.” He goes on to warn:

In reality, this makes reason blind to what is essential. To resist this eclipse of reason and to preserve its capacity for seeing the essential, for seeing God and man, for seeing what is good and what is true, is the common interest that must unite all people of good will. The very future of the world is at stake. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Address to the Roman Curia, December 20th, 2010

In a word, we are passing through an epochal “eclipse of reason” — what is being coined as “Wokism”…

Wokism

Wokism began in African-American vernacular as being “alert to racial prejudice and discrimination”.[3] But this has morphed into an embrace of “identity politics”, “white privilege”,[4] “social justice”,[5] LGBT ideology,[6] “reproductive rights”,[7] assisted suicide,[8] and even the demand that one accept unquestioninglythe “climate change”[9] and COVID[10]narratives. In a word, Wokism embraces whatever happens to be politically correct and is rarely based in sound science or philosophy but, frequently, emotion. “Woke capitalism” refers to those corporations that financially back whatever movement or ideology is the politically correct trend of the hour. And those who refute or reject Wokism are denounced, cancelled, and even defunded.[11] Hence, Wokism has become a veritable…

dictatorship of relativism that recognizes nothing as definite, and which leaves as the ultimate measure only one’s ego and desires. Having a clear faith, according to the credo of the Church, is often labeled as fundamentalism. Yet, relativism, that is, letting oneself be tossed and ‘swept along by every wind of teaching’, appears the sole attitude acceptable to today’s standards. —Cardinal Ratzinger (POPE BENEDICT XVI) pre-conclave Homily, April 18th, 2005

While elements of Wokism may find a certain echo within the “social Gospel” of the Catholic Church, it is increasingly an ever-morphing icon of sophistry: a twisting of reality and the natural law. 

…of grave concern is the spread of a secularist ideology that undermines or even rejects transcendent truth. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, speech at St. Joseph’s Church, April 8th, 2008, Yorkville, New York; Catholic News Agency

Wokism is more often than not new injustices veiled as “social justice.” Hence, biological men are allowed to compete in women’s sports or use girls’ washrooms;[12] belittling “whites” is an acceptable form of reparation;[13] a baby is torn apart in the womb in the name of women’s rights;[14] transgenders or non-whites are given special privileges and grants, etc.[15]I had a powerful and unforgettable dream about Wokism about thirty years ago. Only in the past two years have I come to realize just how literal this dream has become…I was in a retreat setting with other Christians, worshipping the Lord, when suddenly a group of young people walked in. They were in their twenties, male and female, all of them very attractive. It was clear to me that they were silently taking over this retreat house. I remember having to file past them through the kitchen. They were smiling, but their eyes were cold. There was a hidden evil beneath their beautiful faces, more tangible than visible.The next thing I remember is emerging from solitary confinement. There were no security guards but it was like I had to be there and, eventually, left of my own accord. I was taken to a laboratory-like white room lit with bright white light. There, I found my wife and children seemingly drugged, emaciated, abused in some way.I woke up. And when I did, I sensed—and I do not know how—the spirit of “Antichrist” in my room. The evil was so overwhelming, so horrific, so unimaginable, that I began to weep, “Lord, it can’t be. It can’t be! No Lord….” Never before or since then have I experienced such “pure” evil. And it was the definite sense that this evil was either present, or coming to the earth…My wife awoke, hearing my distress, rebuked the spirit, and peace slowly began to return…I will only focus on the first paragraph (you can read the rest of the interpretation of the dream here). But I see those faces every day now on the news,[16] in social media, on webcasts, etc.. They are the faces of Wokism. Evil is not some impersonal, deterministic force at work in the world. It is the result of human freedom. Freedom, which distinguishes human beings from every other creature on earth, is ever present at the heart of the drama of evil. Evil always has a name and a face: the name and face of those men and women who freely choose it. —POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II, Message for World Day of Peace, 2005 The New ReligionSt. Paul seemingly uttered a powerful prophetic vision of our times in his letter to the Romans where he accurately describes much of Wokism today:For what can be known about God is evident to them, because God made it evident to them… Instead, they became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened. While claiming to be wise, they became fools… (Rom 1:21-23)They claim to be “woke” but are spiritually blind — asleep. St. Paul then perceives where Wokism leads if left unchecked…Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another… since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper. (Rom 1:24-28)Of course, even quoting that Scripture is a violation of the religion of Wokism — and a religion, it is. …an abstract religion is being made into a tyrannical standard that everyone must follow. That is then seemingly freedom — for the sole reason that it is liberation from the previous situation. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Light of the World, A Conversation with Peter Seewald, p. 52And yet, this seemingly unstoppable tsunami of moral relativism is merely the expected fruit of what was ironically called the “Enlightenment” period birthed in the 16th century.The Enlightenment was a comprehensive, well-organized, and brilliantly led movement to eliminate Christianity from modern society. It began with Deism as its religious creed, but eventually rejected all transcendent notions of God. It finally became a religion of “human progress” and the “Goddess of Reason.” —Fr. Frank Chacon and Jim Burnham, Beginning Apologetics Volume 4: How to Answer Atheists and New Agers, p.16Wokism is really the sum and natural progression of all other isms of that period: rationalism, materialism, Darwinism, practical atheism, utilitarianism, Marxism, socialism, communism, psychologism, radical feminism, relativism, individualism, etc. These ideologies claim to be an evolution of intelligence and reason, particularly through the sciences.[17] Yet again, not even they are to be excused; for if they had the power to know so much that they could investigate the world, how did they fail to find sooner the Lord of these things? (Wisdom 13:8-9)Their minds are not enlightened, but darkened by the “father of lies.”[18] Awaken!Most significantly, Wokism has become the evolving religion of millennials and their younger siblings who are increasingly abandoning organized religion[19] and, now, democracy.[20] Didn’t Our Lady of Fatima warn that the “errors of Russia” (where Communism was implemented) would spread throughout the world unless we heeded the call to conversion?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). —POPE ST. PIUS X, Miserentissimus RedemptorEncyclical Letter on Reparation to the Sacred Heart, May 8th, 1928What is the antidote then? How do we stand against this diabolical flood of lies spewing from the mouth of the serpent (Rev 12:15-16)?[21]The answer is to be awake, not woke. 
Faithful, not faddish. 
Courageous, not compromised:Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours… God has overlooked the times of ignorance, but now he demands that all people everywhere repent because he has established a day on which he will ‘judge the world with justice’… When people are saying, “Peace and security,” then sudden disaster comes upon them, like labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers, are not in darkness, for that day to overtake you like a thief. For all of you are children of the light and children of the day. We are not of the night or of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep as the rest do, but let us stay alert and sober. (2 Thessalonians 2:15; Acts 17:30-31; 1 Thess 5:3-6)For the future of the world stands in peril unless wiser people are forthcoming. —POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II, Familiaris Consortion. 8Yes, we need to pray for Wisdom. The world is filled with knowledge; everyone with a computer and Google is now a genius. But there are few wise men and women. Wisdom is a gift of the Holy Spirit and it comes to those who humbly approach and obey the Lord.[22] Wisdom, divine Wisdom, is what makes a soul “awake.”The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God… For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. (1 Corinthians 1:18, 25)What is necessary is that souls stay close to the Heart of Jesus through daily prayer and the Sacraments — and let Our Lady mother you.[23] These are the prime means to stay “alert and sober” and not go crazy as we are forced to watch this “disturbia” or “mass formation psychosis”[24] spread across the world.The enemies will try to extinguish the splendor of the truth, but God will win. Confusion will be great in the House of God because of the fault of those who have turned away from true doctrine. I suffer because of what is coming for you. Do not retreat. God’s victory will come for the righteous. Courage! Love and defend the truth. There is no victory without the cross. Confession, Eucharist, Holy Scripture and the Holy Rosary: these are the weapons for the Great Battle. —Our Lady to Pedro Regis, November 19, 2022 “Watch and pray”

THE ART OF BEGINNING AGAIN – PART I

Posted on  by Mark

HUMBLING

First published November 20th, 2017…

This week, I am doing something different—a five part series, based on this week’s Gospels, on how to begin again after having fallen. We live in a culture where we are saturated in sin and temptation, and it is claiming many victims; many are discouraged and exhausted, downtrodden and losing their faith. It is necessary, then, to learn the art of beginning again…

WHY do we feel crushing guilt when we do something bad? And why is this common to every single human being? Even babies, if they do something wrong, often seem to “just know” that they shouldn’t have.

The answer is because every single person is made in God’s image, who is Love. That is, our own natures were made to love and be loved, and thus, this “law of love” is written on our very hearts. Whenever we do something against love, our hearts are broken to one degree or another. And we feel it. We know it. And if we don’t know how to fix it, a whole chain of negative effects is set off that, if left unchecked, can vary from simply being restless and without peace to serious mental and health conditions or slavery to one’s passions.

Of course, the idea of “sin”, its consequences and personal responsibility, is something this generation has pretended does not exist, or that atheists have dismissed as a social construct created by the Church to control and manipulate the masses. But our hearts tell us differently… and we ignore our conscience at the peril of our happiness.

Enter Jesus Christ.

At the annunciation of His conception, the Angel Gabriel said, “Do not be afraid.” [1] At the announcement of His birth, the angel said, “Do not be afraid.” [2] At the inauguration of His mission, Jesus said, “Do not be afraid.” [3] And when He announced His impending death, He said again: “Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” [4] Afraid of what? Afraid of God—afraid of the One whom we also know, deep within our hearts, is watching us and to whom we are accountable. From the very first sin, Adam and Eve discovered a new reality they had never tasted before: fear.

…the man and his wife hid themselves from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. The Lord God then called to the man and asked him: Where are you? He answered, “I heard you in the garden; but I was afraid, because I was naked, so I hid.” (Genesis 3:8-11)

So, when Jesus became man and entered time, He was essentially saying, “Come out from behind the trees; come out from the cave of fear; come out and see that I have not come to condemn you, but to liberate you from yourself.” Contrary to the picture modern man has painted of God as a wrathful intolerant perfectionist who is poised to destroy the sinner, Jesus reveals that He has come, not only to take away our fear, but the very source of that fear: sin, and all its consequences.

Love has come to banish fear.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love. (1 John 4:18)

If you are still afraid, still restless, still guilt-ridden, it is usually for two reasons. One is that you have not yet admitted that you truly are a sinner, and as such, live with a false image and distorted reality. The second is that you still succumb to your passions. And hence, you must learn the art of beginning again… and again and again.

The first step in being liberated from fear is to simply admit the very root of your fear: that you are indeed a sinner. If Jesus said “the truth will set you free,” the very first truth is the truth of who you are, and who you aren’t. Until you walk in this light, you will always remain in darkness, which is the breeding ground for fear, sadness, compulsion and every vice.

If we say, “We are without sin,” we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we acknowledge our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from every wrongdoing. (1 John 1:8-9)

In today’s Gospel, we hear the blind man crying out:

“Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” And those who were in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” (Luke 18:38-39)

There are many voices, perhaps even now, telling you that this is silly, futile, and a waste of time. That God does not hear you nor does He listen to sinners like you; or perhaps that you are really not that bad a person after all. But those who heed such voices truly are blind, for “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” [5] No, we already know the truth—we just haven’t admitted to ourselves.

This is the moment, then, when we must reject those voices and, with all our strength and courage, cry out:

Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!

If you do, your liberation has already begun…

The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not spurn.
(Psalm 51:17)

To be continued…

WAM – POWDER KEG?

Posted on  by Mark

THE media and government narrative — versus what actually took place in the historic Convoy protest in Ottawa, Canada in early 2022, when millions of Canadians peacefully rallied across the country to support truckers in their rejection of unjust mandates — are two different stories. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act, froze bank accounts of Canadian supporters of all walks of life, and used violence against peaceful protesters. Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland felt threatened… but so did millions of Canadians by their own government.

If we do not defend our freedom, we will lose our freedom.

“DIED SUDDENLY” — PROPHECY FULFILLED

Posted on  by Mark

ON May 28, 2020, 8 months before a mass inoculation of the experimental mRNA gene therapies were to begin, my heart was burning with a “now word”:  a serious warning that genocide was coming.[1] I followed that up with the documentary Following the Science? that now has nearly 2 million views in all languages, and provides the scientific and medical warnings that went largely unheeded. It echoes what John Paul II called a “conspiracy against life”[2] that is being unleashed, yes, even through healthcare professionals. 

A unique responsibility belongs to health-care personnel: doctors, pharmacists, nurses, chaplains, men and women religious, administrators and volunteers. Their profession calls for them to be guardians and servants of human life. In today’s cultural and social context, in which science and the practice of medicine risk losing sight of their inherent ethical dimension, health-care professionals can be strongly tempted at times to become manipulators of life, or even agents of death. —POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II, Evangelium Vitae, n. 89

When I penned Our 1942, I began with the Scripture:

And so I solemnly declare to you this day
that I am not responsible for the blood of any of you,
for I did not shrink from proclaiming to you the entire plan of God…
So be vigilant and remember that for three years, night and day,
I unceasingly admonished each of you with tears. (Acts 20:26-27, 31)

“I am not responsible for the blood of any of you,” said St. Paul. This week, the world premiere of a new documentary called “Died Suddenly” is also shaking the false narrative that you have heard for three years: that the injections are “safe and effective.” It focuses, in fact, on what has happened to the blood of many who are now “dying suddenly.” It is an absolute must-see, another critical perspective:

Prophecy Ignored — Prophecy Fulfilled

Of course, most readers here know that Heaven was already warning since at least the Spring of 2020 that dangers were looming on humanity’s horizon — warnings that these “vaccines” would not only endanger lives but erode freedoms — all, of which have been fulfilled:[3]

Dear children, fight for your freedom: you are about to be enslaved by evil dictators. Beware of vaccines and all obligations, because they will not come from God, but from Satan who wants to govern your lives and minds. —Our Lady to Gisella Cardia , April 18th, 2020

Great darkness envelops the world, and now is the time. Satan is going to attack the physical body of My children whom I created in My image and in My likeness… Satan, through his puppets who rule the world, wants to inoculate you with his venom. He will push his hatred against you to the point of compulsory imposition that will take no account of your freedom. Once again, many of My children who cannot defend themselves will be the martyrs of silence, as was the case for the Holy Innocents. This is what Satan and his henchmen have always done…. —God the Father to Fr. Michel Rodrigue , December 31st, 2020

Human beings are being cornered by global power, which sullies human dignity, leading people to great disorder, acting under the dominion of the spawn of Satan, consecrated beforehand by their own free will… At this very difficult time for humanity, the attack of diseases created by misused science will continue to increase, preparing humanity so that it would voluntarily request the mark of the beast, not only in order not to become sick, but to be supplied with what will soon be materially lacking, forgetting spirituality due to a weak Faith. The time of the great famine is advancing like a shadow over humanity that is unexpectedly facing radical changes… —Our Lord to Luz de Maria de Bonilla , January 12th, 2021

Children, I come again to warn you and to help you not to make mistakes, avoiding what does not come from God; yet you look around in confusion without realizing the dead that there are, and that there will be on earth — all because of your obstinacy in only listening to human decisions. Many times I have told my children to be careful regarding vaccines, yet you do not listen. Our Lady to Gisella Cardia on March 16th, 2021

No, we did not listen. Instead, we accused those of sounding the alarm of being “conspiracy theorists.” We “cancelled” experts in immunology and virology, many with PhDs, whose crime was contradicting the pharma-funded 6 o’clock news. We mocked, ridiculed, and excluded friends and family members who sent us studies, data, and evidence that these experimental injections had the potential to be deadly. And when we began to show that government data was proving this true with unprecedented “safety signals” going off… we closed our ears and “just sang a little louder.”

Yes, perhaps the most unsettling of the prophetic words regarding what was coming came from Jesus allegedly to American seer Jennifer on November 15th, 2021:

My child, this world is greatly divided. There are those who trust out of fear and there are those who fear to trust… The days of great mourning are coming. Many will not be able to seek My mercy because they do not truly know it. Mothers will yearn for their children and fathers will weep because they will see how they have blindly trusted the author of deception… Where will you take refuge when the great shaking begins and will echo all around this world? What will you surrender to when you see the deception that you have allowed your soul to be guided into when the true labor pains begin? My children, your only refuge is in My most Sacred Heart. It is time to surrender to the truth and turn away from a world that seeks to devour your heart, mind, and soul. The devil uses the mind to trick the body to trap the soul. If you allow Me to take refuge in your heart and the Holy Spirit to guide you, then you have nothing to fear.—from The Days of Great Mourning Are Coming

The Final Step — Digital Gulag

No, my brothers and sisters, this is not a cheap moment of “I told you so” or a kind of perverse schadenfreude. Rather, it is precisely a last call from Jesus to enter His Sacred Heart. For the global trap that has been set is about to be sprung, and when it is, those who reject the Great Reset will be left behind. Jesus is all that we will have.[4] We have never, as a global community, been so close to something resembling the “mark of the beast” as we are now. 

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. (Revelation 13:16-17)

The COVID-19 injections are not this “mark”, but the entire infrastructure that has been set up in their wake certainly seem to be preparing humanity for it. ‘This month,’ notes The Epoch Times, ‘leaders of the Group of 20 have issued a joint declaration promoting a global standard on proof of vaccination for international travel and calling for the establishment of “global digital health networks” that build on existing digital COVID-19 vaccine passport schemes.’[5] The G20 joint declaration reads:

We acknowledge the importance of shared technical standards and verification methods, under the framework of the IHR (2005), to facilitate seamless international travel, interoperability, and recognizing digital solutions and non-digital solutions, including proof of vaccinations… — “G20 Bali Leaders Declaration”, Bali, Indonesia, November 15-16, 2022 whitehouse.gov

In attendance at the B20 gathering of global leaders, part of the G20 summit, was of course World Economic Forum Chairman, Klaus Schwab. Once again, he proclaimed his gospel of global transformation:

…what we have to confront is a deep systemic and structural restructuring of our world. And this will take some time. And the world will look differently after we have gone through this transition process. —youtube.com

What will the world look like? For one, the ability to buy and sell, to enter buildings, to travel, will all depend upon one’s “vaccine status.” This will likely be tied to a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) that is now very close.[6] In other words, your debit or credit card can simply be turned “on” or “off” depending upon your compliance (social credit score). Here again, we see that prophecy has been far ahead of the game. This from the Orthodox Saint, Paisios of Mt. Athos (1924–1994), last century:

…now a vaccine has been developed to combat a new disease, which will be obligatory and those taking it will be marked… Later on, anyone who is not marked with the number 666 will not be able to either buy or sell, to get a loan, to get a job, and so forth. My thinking tells me that this is the system through which the Antichrist has chosen to take over the whole world, and people who are not part of this system won’t be able to find work and so on — whether black or white or red; in other words, everyone he will take over through an economic system that controls the global economy, and only those who have accepted the seal, the mark of the number 666, will be able to participate in business dealings. —Elder Paisios—The Signs of the Times, p.204, Holy Monastery of Mount Athos / Distributed by AtHOS; 1st edition, (2012)

Second, the Great Reset or “Fourth Industrial Revolution” promises to alter human beings themselves:

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is literally, as they say, a transformative revolution, not just in terms of the tools that you will use to modify your environment, but for the first time in human history to modify human beings themselves. —Dr. Miklos Lukacs de Pereny, research professor of science and technology policy at Universidad San Martin de Porres in Peru; November 25th, 2020; lifesitenews.com

Third, what we buy and/or sell and even where we live will be radically restricted due to “climate change” ideology[7] that claims the end of all things is nigh.[8] As such, people will be forced into urban “ghettoes”[9] so that the land can be “re-wilded” while their diets will become meatless[10] and supplemented with insects.[11]

I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand…. saying to people, “You can’t have cows anymore”— talk about a politically unpopular approach to things. —Bill Gates, MIT Technology Review, February 14th, 2021

This, of course, means having to cull hundreds of millions of fowl and livestock, which has already begun.[12]

Letting trees grow back naturally could be the key to restoring the world’s forests. Natural regeneration — or ‘rewilding’ — is an approach to conservation… It means stepping back to let nature take over and let the damaged ecosystems and landscapes restore by themselves… It can mean getting rid of manmade structures and restoring native species that are in decline. It can also mean removing grazing cattle and aggressive weeds… — World Ecnomomic Forum, “Natural regeneration could be key to restoring the world’s forests”, November 30th, 2020; youtube.com

And fourth, mankind itself will be culled, which is already well underway through birth control, abortion and assisted-suicide — to the point that we are passing, not through “overpopulation,” but through a demographic winter.[13] Of course, the mainstream media is already going bananas in their “fact-checking”-damage-control mode, attempting to water down the damning evidence presented in “Died Suddenly” — particularly the allegation that these injections are being used as a tool of depopulation. But this was precisely the concern of the former Vice President of Pfizer, no less:

Biotechnology provides you with limitless ways, frankly, to injure or kill billions of people…. I’m very worried… that pathway will be used for mass depopulation, because I can’t think of any benign explanation…. —Dr. Mike Yeadon, former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory at Pfizer, interview, April 7th, 2021; lifesitenews.com

Why aren’t the doctors and scientists speaking?… Instead, what they’re doing is they’re forcing vaccination on people, and I believe they are killing people with this vaccination… You are heading for the greatest catastrophe in your history. —Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, M.D.;  The New American(10:29)

Basically, we’ll very soon be confronted with a super-infectous virus that completely resists our most precious defense mechanism: The human immune system. From all of the above, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to imagine how the consequences of the extensive and erroneous human intervention [of injecting people with these “leaky” mRNA gene therapies] in this pandemic are not going to wipe out large parts of our human populationOpen Letter, March 6th, 2021; watch an interview on this warning with Dr. Vanden Bossche here or here

At the cost of his job, Dr. Igor Shepherd, an expert on bio-weapons and Pandemic preparedness, likewise warned just weeks before the mass vaccination campaign began:

I want to look 2 – 6 years from now [for adverse reactions]… I call all these vaccinations against COVID-19: biological weapons of mass destruction… global genetic genocide. And this is coming not only to the United States, but to the whole world… With these kind of vaccines, untested properly, with revolutionary technology and side-effects we don’t even know, we can expect millions of people will be gone.  —vaccineimpact.com, November 30th, 2020; 47:28 mark of video

Factoring in underreporting, deaths in the United States are on average close to half a million, and climbing.[14] That number in Europe, if underreporting is similar, is over 1.5 million. The predictions of these scientists, sadly, appear to be more than true. Besides, the obsession with depopulation is nothing new. It was stated openly by policy advisors…

Depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World. — former U.S. Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, National Security Memo 200, April 24, 1974, “Implications of worldwide population growth for U.S. security & overseas interests”; National Security Council’s Ad Hoc Group on Population Policy

…promoted by academics… 

Society globally has to collectively decide that we need to drastically lower our population very quickly. —Arne Mooers, a Simon Fraser University biodiversity professor and a co-author of the study: Approaching a state-shift in Earth’s biosphereTerraDaily, June 11th, 2012

Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs. —John Davis, editor of Earth First Journal; from Hope of the Wicked, Ted Flynn, p. 373

…sought after by eugenicists…

Very little work is in progress on immunological methods, methods such as vaccines, to reduce fertility, and much more research is required if a solution is to be found here. — The Rockefeller Foundation, “The Presidents Five-Year Review, Annual Report 1968, p. 52; view pdf here

The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent. —Bill Gates, TED talk, February 20th, 2010; cf. the 4:30 mark

…and denounced by popes:

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

…we must not underestimate the disturbing scenarios that threaten our future, or the powerful new instruments that the “culture of death” has at its disposal. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Caritas in Veritate, n. 75

The Final Confrontation

Brothers and sisters, all this would be a cause for despair — except that Our Lady promised that, after all these tribulations, her Immaculate Heart would Triumph. That’s another way of saying that Jesus, through the maternity of Mary, will be victorious. 

On this universal level, if victory comes it will be brought by Mary. Christ will conquer through her because He wants the Church’s victories now and in the future to be linked to her… —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Crossing the Threshold of Hope, p. 221

Yes, the Big Lie today is that man is an evil blight that must be eradicated in order to solve our problems — as if God miscalculated when He said, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it.”[15] Moreover, there is a temptation to simply stop living, stop having families and take on a “bunker” mentality. Recently, the planet statistically reached 8 billion inhabitants, to which Steve Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, asked:

…is it a milestone on humanity’s upward path that we should celebrate or a warning of impending catastrophe over which we should despair? This depends on who you listen to… Did you know that the situation in Italy is so dire that rapidly depopulating hill towns are giving away houses to lure people to move in? Wolves have made a reappearance in certain parts of Germany. Some say the world is rife with problems. It certainly is. We all know that. But we know that mankind is not the problem. Mankind is the answer. —”Welcome Baby 8 Billion”, October 7th, 2022; epochtimes.com

A conversation of Sister Emmanuel Maillard, a French nun of the Beatitudes Community, with Medjugorje seer, Mirjana, apparently went something like this:[16]

Sister Emmanuel: “Yesterday you sent very strong statements of Our Lady. For example: “Do not be afraid to have children. You should rather be afraid of not having any! The more children you have, the better!”

Mirjana: “Yes, she said so, and she knows why she said it. I know that too … but I can not tell you more.”

Sister Emmanuel: “Oh … you know it too …!”

Mirjana (nodding, smiling): “When the secrets are revealed, people will understand why it was so important for them to have many children. We are all waiting for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

The French seer, Francine Bériault, was also given a message of a future of hope from Jesus and Our Lady:

Those who will be delivered from the spell of the Angel of death will be happy to have pronounced their “yes”. What joy for all My chosen to have My graces! My priests will nourish them with the Body and Blood of Christ. They who will have said “yes”, as well as the children of the Light, will see wonders before their eyes… you will taste love and you will go forward in My New Earth in peace, joy, and love… no more fear, no more hatred, only love, only peace. —Message 317. February, 2003

“On the seventh day, he rested.” My children, this holy day, the seventh, which corresponds to the number of perfection, has not yet been accomplished. [17] The earth in its full development, was to give Adam and Eve its fruits. But their sin stopped this plan of love. My children, My Father has given His Son so that this day, the seventh, may be accomplished, when all will be only joy, only peace. Father, “Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” This is the reminder of the promise made to Abraham, that all would populate the earth in joy and where all would be in Him, almighty God. This day which my Father created during Adam and Eve’s time is coming. May time be accomplished in each one of you!… —April 23, 2001; cf. “Francine Bériault – La Fille du Oui à Jésus”

And finally, let me quote our dear Holy Father who promised that, despite the grave nature of the confrontation before us, it lies within the plans of Divine Providence.

We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. This confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence; it is a trial which the whole Church, and the Polish Church in particular, must take up. It is a trial of not only our nation and the Church, but in a sense a test 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 for the bicentennial celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence; most citations of this passage do not include the words “Christ and the antichrist”. Deacon Keith Fournier, an attendee at the events, reports it as above; cf. Catholic Online; August 13, 1976

That is, Jesus will safeguard and care for His Bride during this tribulation, most especially, in the Heart of His Mother, who is the Ark provided to us for this Great Storm.[18] Let us not argue with Jesus on this point but simply ask this “woman clothed in the sun”[19] to take us, and our loved ones, into the Safe Harbour of her Son. For the Storm is about to burst in fury upon this poor humanity…

My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God. —Our Lady of Fatima, June 13, 1917, The Revelation of the Two Hearts in Modern Times, www.ewtn.com

WAM – TO MASK OR NOT TO MASK

Posted on  by Mark

NOTHING has divided families, parishes, and communities more than “masking.” With the flu season starting with a kick and hospitals paying the price for reckless lockdowns that kept people from building their natural immunity, some are calling for mask mandates again. But wait a minute… based on what science, after previous mandates failed to work in the first place?

THE MILLSTONE

Posted on  by Mark

Jesus said to his disciples,
“Things that cause sin will inevitably occur,
but woe to the one through whom they occur.
It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck
and he be thrown into the sea
than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.”
(Monday’s Gospel, Lk 17:1-6)

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be satisfied.
(Matt 5:6)

TODAY, in the name of “tolerance” and “inclusivity”, the most egregious crimes — physical, moral and spiritual — against the “little ones” are being excused and even celebrated. I cannot remain silent. I don’t care how “negative” and “gloomy” or whatever other label people want to call me. If ever there were a time for the men of this generation, starting with our clergy, to defend the “least of the brethren”, it is now. But the silence is so overwhelming, so deep and widespread, that it reaches into the very bowels of space where one can already hear another millstone hurtling toward the earth.

A mighty angel picked up a stone like a huge millstone and threw it into the sea and said: “With such force will Babylon the great city be thrown down, and will never be found again.” (Rev 18:21)

Babylon, said Pope Benedict, is a “symbol of the world’s great irreligious cities.”[1] St. John describes why in vivid detail:

Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great. She has become a haunt for demons. She is a cage for every unclean spirit, a cage for every unclean bird, a cage for every unclean and disgusting beast… Depart from her, my people, so as not to take part in her sins and receive a share in her plagues. (Rev 18:2, 4)

In 2006, I penned How to Know When a Chastisement is Near citing the very Scripture above. Of course, the innocents have been the victim in every generation of the “perverse and wicked” since the day Cain murdered Abel. But what sets our generation apart from any other is that the corruption of the young is both global and ubiquitous through the phenomenon of the Internet. 

It is too disturbing to go into any great detail as to what is taking place today. Nonetheless, the “now word” I am compelled to write finds its echo in recent messages allegedly from Our Lady to seers around the world. 

I do not want to weep any more; as you know, the times are approaching at great speed… The times are coming to an end… [2] —Our Lady to Valeria Copponi, November 9th, 2022

Mirroring that same chapter in Revelation where the angel hurtles the millstone, Our Lady offered hope without white-washing reality:

Beloved children, the plagues will be as many as the sins of the world… Beloved children, be confident because the new time is not very far away — it will be a time of love, of peace, where there will be no pain but only joy, and you will finally only act for the good. —to Gisella Cardia, November 5th, 2022

This generation is living in so much sin, greater than that of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 19:1-30). At this moment, the cup is almost empty. —Our Lady to Luz de Maria, November 6th, 2022

And finally, 

The Most High permits me to be with you and to be joy for you and the way in hope, because mankind has decided for death. —Our Lady of Medjugorje to Marija, October 25th, 2022

These are no doubt ultimatums, in part, because once you assault the youth on such a global scale, you attack the very future. Today, the assault on the innocents and their innocence by the new “Herods” of our times is taking on many forms:

The New Herods

• Through pornography. Nearly every young man and woman today has been touched by this global scourge that stains the soul and drains it of purity and innocence. The destruction in young men, in particular, could impact families for generations to come.

• Through gender ideology. The introduction in schools of transgenderism — that one can pick and choose their gender, as though it is separate from their biological sex — is a heinous social experiment that has taken a truly diabolical turn. Now, educators and politicians[3] are pushing for children to have their breasts removed and their genitalia permanently altered — without parents’ permission — to assist them in their “gender creativity.”[4] This is a crime. In the surprising words of radical and oft-foul-mouthed comedian Bill Maher:

They’re kids, it’s all phases. The dinosaur phase, the Hello Kitty phase… genderfluid? Kids are fluid about everything. If kids knew what they wanted to be at age eight, the world would be filled with cowboys and princesses. I wanted to be a pirate. Thank God nobody took me seriously and scheduled me for eye removal and peg-leg surgery. —National ReviewMay 23, 2022

But the consequences are hardly a laughing matter. Joey Maiza was born a female and at the age of 27, medically transitioned to “male”. She was on hormone replacement therapy (testosterone) for 8 years, had a double mastectomy in 2014, and partial hysterectomy in 2016. She is now in the process of medically detransitioning back to female. This is her heartbreaking message to the world:

The complementarity of man and woman, summit of divine creation, is being questioned by the so-called gender ideology, in the name of a more free and just society. The differences between man and woman are not for opposition or subordination, but for communion and generation, always in the “image and likeness” of God. Without mutual self-giving, neither one can understand the other in depth. The Sacrament of Marriage is a sign of the love of God for humanity and of Christ’s giving himself for his Bride, the Church. —POPE FRANCIS, address to Puerto Rican Bishops, Vatican City, June 08, 2015

• Through sexually transmitted diseases. With this complete upheaval of human sexuality and experimentation, it is no surprise that sexually transmitted diseases in the United States are ‘out of control’ and in epidemic proportions,[5] as well as in Canada[6] and much of the West.[7] Recall that in the 1958 account of The Naked Communist where former FBI agent, Cleon Skousen, revealed in shocking detail forty-five Communist goals, three of them were:

#25 Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

#26 Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

#40 Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity, masturbation and easy divorce.

• Through censorship. By censoring God, prayer, and discussion of Christianity in schools, youth are being formed in atheistic and often Marxist ideology. 

#28 Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

#17 Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks. The Naked Communist

• Through drugs and their increasing legalization. In America, a fentanyl crisis is ‘exploding’ as drug use has soared[8] with a dramatic spike in meth and cocaine deaths.[9] This, while Europe has replaced America as the main cocaine market.[10]

• Through pandemic measures — the new normal. Much of the “behavioural despair” in recent times is due to the last three years and a cruel experiment on the young, who were not only robbed of childhood memories through lockdowns, but in many places, emotionally and physically damaged by mandates such as masking. 

Children born during the coronavirus pandemic show reduced cognitive, motor, and verbal performance compared to children born before the pandemic, according to a new study. —August 15th, 2021; israelnationalnews.com; see: “Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Early Child Cognitive Development: Initial Findings in a Longitudinal Observational Study of Child Health”

COVID rules are blamed for 23% dive in young children’s development: Disturbing study shows scores in three key cognitive tests slumped between 2018 and 2021, with face mask rules among possible culprits. —November 26, 2021, dailymail.co.uk

As some regions begin to toy with imposing mask mandates on the public again,[11] the science[12] continues to be ignored of the massive harms this causes, most especially, to the “little ones”:

…masking children is as absurd, illogical, nonsensical, and potentially dangerous as trying to stop ‘every case of Covid’ or ‘stopping Covid at all costs.’ Masks are not needed for children based on near-zero risk in children. —Paul E Alexander MSc, PhD, March 10, 2021; aier.org

German neurologist Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, PhD had warned that chronic oxygen deprivation through mask-wearing, especially for the young, amplifies “the degenerative processes in your brain.” Thus, she says, “For children and adolescents, masks are an absolute no-no.”[13] Indeed, a study printed in May of 2022 found that wearing a face mask results in exposure to dangerous concentrations of carbon dioxide in inhaled air, even when the mask is worn for just five minutes when sitting still.[14] Nonetheless, the child abuse continues.[15]

• Through suicide. Despair, without hope, has dramatic consequences. Suicides in the United States jumped 29% among adolescents ages 15 to 19 over the previous decade.[16] In Europe, emergency room visits for suicidal acts, suicidal thoughts and mood disorders have increased in all age groups among young people in 2022.[17] Suicide is the second leading cause of death amongst people aged between 15-29, a trend that has developed over the last 13 years. The Spanish branch of Save the Children warned that mental health issues amongst children had tripled during the pandemic, with 3% reporting suicidal thoughts. In Croatiathere has been a 57.1% increase in suicides in the 15-25 age group. In Bulgaria and Poland, suicides are also overall decreasing but cases among children and adolescents are going up.[18]

But all of this takes a dark twist when we see governments — not stepping in to help young people with skills to cope — but passing laws to make it easy to receive “medical” assistance to simply kill themselves when under mental duress.

Canada’s extremely liberal euthanasia laws, which, next year, are set to be extended to include people suffering from mental health conditions and potentially minors, have been slammed for being reminiscent of the way the Nazis dealt with people with disabilities by a leading academic in the field. —Gus Alexiou, Forbes, August 15th, 2022

[The Nazis] used doctors to murder the weakest in [their] society. I thought doctors kind of agreed after the Second World War not to do things like this! A doctor’s job is to help people, make them better, not to kill them and give up on them when they’re kids! —Tucker Carlson, FoxNews commentary, October 26th, 2022; lifesitenews.com

• Through deliberate destruction by powerful globalists of a future of freedom, ambition and entrepreneurship. Aside from pandemic measures that were synchronized and funded by billionaires across the globe, the incomprehensible attempts to destroy fossil-fuel energy, restrict fertilizer for crops, and self-destructive sanctions against Russia have resulted in a near-total collapse of the global economy. All of this is a deliberate destruction of the present order in order to corral humanity into digital ID’s and digital currency such that every move and transaction can be surveilled and controlled.

All of this has led us to a man-made famine that has put hundreds of millions more on the verge of starvation, especially children. 

…a perfect storm on top of a perfect storm… 345 million… Within that are 50 million people in 45 countries knocking on famine’s door. If we don’t reach these people, you will have famine, starvation, destabilization of nations unlike anything we saw in 2007-2008 and 2011, and you will have mass migration. —World Food Program Executive Director David Beasley, September 23, 2022, apnews.com

 
The Great Millstone?

What I’m about to write is so politically incorrect that I’m not even going to bother apologizing to the delicate of heart.

In April 2020, I had a stunning dream that was more like a vision — and I’ve only had a few of these in my lifetime. I saw from earth an object like a huge, black asteroid approaching in space that began to break up and hail down fireballs. I was then taken outside of our orbit where I saw all the planets in rotation and watched as this huge celestial object approached, chunks of it breaking off and meteors falling to the earth as it passed by. I have never seen anything so incredible, so stunning, and it remains vivid in my mind’s eye. In fact, the Lord has been warning me of such an event for years now but never so clearly. Of course, we know well the warning of Our Lady of Akita:

As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful.  —Message given through an apparition to Sr. Agnes Sasagawa of Akita, Japan, October 13th, 1973 

And then this allegedly from Jesus to Gisella Cardia the same month I had that dream. 

…soon the Warning will be upon you, giving you the choice to love Me or Satan. After that, balls of fire will descend on the earth and it will be the worst period for you, because catastrophes of all kinds will come. My Mother will protect you, placing you under her Blessed mantle: do not be afraid. I bless you all in the name of the Father, in My Name and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. —April 8, 2020

When the second angel blew his trumpet, something like a large burning mountain was hurled into the sea. A third of the sea turned to blood, a third of the creatures living in the sea died, and a third of the ships were wrecked. (Revelation 8:8-9)

But even God’s justice is Mercy in Chaosand for some, the last possible hope of salvation. As Our Lady said recently, “Do not be afraid for tomorrow if you are in Christ.”[19] This does not mean that those who are in Christ will not be called home tomorrow. Rather, that God will give all of us who are faithful to Him the grace to endure whatever suffering and trials we will face, including our death. Not before, not too late, but grace when we need it.

Finally, remember brothers and sisters, that God’s justice ultimately will establish His Kingdom of the Divine Will, the fulfillment of the ‘Our Father’. If the millstone is punishment for the wicked, it becomes an instrument of reward for the righteous through purification. In a dream, King Nebuchadnezzar saw that “a stone was hewn from a mountain without a hand being put to it, and it struck” a “terrifying, horrible” beast with “extraordinary strength” composed of several “kings” who would seem to dominate everything.[20] But this “stone” would destroy the kingdom of the beast:

In the lifetime of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed or delivered up to another people; rather, it shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and put an end to them, and it shall stand forever. That is the meaning of the stone you saw hewn from the mountain without a hand being put to it… (Dan 2:44-45)

 
How Much Longer?

There is a palpable cry among the Body of Christ: How much longer, Lord? In today’s Gospel, we hear Jesus promise:

Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night?  Will he be slow to answer them?  I tell you, He will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth? (Luke 18:1-8)

And yet, God’s “speed” and ways are entirely different than our own. In 2006, Benedict XVI stood on the blood-stained grounds of Auschwitz and declared:

In a place like this, words fail; in the end, there can only be a dread silence — a silence which is itself a heartfelt cry to God: Why, Lord, did you remain silent? —Address by the Holy Father, May 28th, 2006; vatican.va

And here, I believe, is an answer:

Full right to pass definitive judgment on the works and hearts of men belongs to him as Redeemer of the world. He “acquired” this right by His Cross. The Father has given “all judgment to the Son”. Yet the Son did not come to judge, but to save and to give the life He has in Himself. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 679

If God delays justice, it is not because He is indifferent to human suffering. 

The Lord does not delay his promise, as some regard “delay,” but he is patient with you, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)

In eternity, no one will question the wisdom of God; His plans and mysterious ways will be made plain. Still, the “delay” of God seems incomprehensible at times. Yet, when we consider the rapid and systematic pace of the Great Reset that is creating revolutionary chaos in the nations, it would seem that the world is heading toward a massive crisis in the short term and, most certainly, a divine chastisement in the not-too-distant future. 

The Lord said to Cain: “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground” (Gen 4:10).The voice of the blood shed by men continues to cry out, from generation to generation, in ever new and different ways. The Lord’s question: “What have you done?”, which Cain cannot escape, is addressed also to the people of today, to make them realize the extent and gravity of the attacks against life which continue to mark human history; to make them discover what causes these attacks and feeds them; and to make them ponder seriously the consequences which derive from these attacks for the existence of individuals and peoples. —POPE ST JOHN PAUL II, Evangelium Vitae, n. 10

We have crafted the millstone; we have hung it around our necks; and with every baby that is destroyed through abortion, we add more weight to it.

The greatest sin is abortion and I will not allow this evil to continue. These areas where the riches and powers of the world are most present will come tumbling down. —Jesus to Jennifer, January 23rd, 2005

How much longer before this dark era is over? We do not know. But when The Millstone has accomplished its purpose, crushing the wicked, a new era will be born. Of this, we can be certain.[21]

And we hear today the groaning as no one has ever heard it before… Pope [John Paul II] does indeed cherish a great expectation that the millennium of divisions will be followed by a millennium of unifications. —Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (BENEDICT XVI), Salt of the Earth (San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 1997), translated by Adrian Walker

But the heart of man is hard and not completely tired. Man has not yet touched the summit of all evils, and therefore he is not yet satiated; so, he does not surrender, and looks with indifference even upon the epidemic. But these are the preludes. The time will come! — it will come — when I will make this evil and perverted generation almost disappear from the earth….

…I will do unforeseen and unexpected things in order to confuse them, and make them comprehend the instability of human things and of themselves — to make them comprehend that God alone is the stable Being from Whom they can expect every good, and that if they want Justice and Peace, they must come to the Fount of true Justice and of true Peace. Otherwise, they will not be able to do anything; they will continue to struggle; and if it may seem that they will arrange peace, it will not be lasting, and the brawls will start again, more strongly. My daughter, the way things are now, only my omnipotent finger can fix them. At the right time I will place it, but great trials are needed and will occur in the world….

There will be a general uproar — confusion everywhere. I will renew the world with the sword, with fire and with water, with sudden deaths, and with contagious diseases. I will make new things. The nations will form a sort of tower of Babel; they will reach the point of being unable to understand one another; the peoples will revolt among themselves; they will no longer want kings. All will be humiliated, and peace will come only from Me. And if you hear them say ‘peace’, that will not be true, but apparent. Once I have purged everything, I will place my finger in a surprising way, and I will give the true Peace…  —Jesus to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, Volume 12

HOW TERRIBLE IS THE GOSPEL?

Posted on  by Mark

First published September 13, 2006…

THIS word was impressed upon me yesterday afternoon, a word bursting with passion and grief: 

Why are you rejecting Me, My people? What is so terrible about the Gospel — the Good News — which I bring you?

I came into the world to forgive your sins, that you may hear the words, “Your sins are forgiven.” How terrible is this?

I have sent My apostles among you to preach the Good News. What is the Good News? That I have died to take away yours sins, thrusting open for you,  Paradise for all eternity. How does this offend you, My beloved?

I have left you My commandment. What is this terrible commandment which I have imposed upon you? What is this central tenet of your faith, this axiom of the Church, this burden which I demand of you?

“Love your neighbour as yourself.”

Is this wickedness, My people? Is this evil? Is this why you reject Me? Have I imposed something upon this world which will choke its freedom and destroy its dignity?

Is it beyond reason that I have commanded you to lay down your lives for one another — that I would ask you to feed the hungry, to shelter the poor, to visit the sick and lonely, to minister to those imprisoned! Have I asked this for your benefit or for your harm? It is there for all to see, nothing is hidden — it is written in black and white: the Gospel of love. And yet you believe lies!

I have sent among you My Church. I have built it on the sure foundation stone of Love. Why do you reject My Church, which is My Body? What does my Church speak that so offends your senses? Is it the command not to murder? Do you believe murder to be good? Is it to not commit adultery? Is divorce healthy and life-giving? Is it the command to not covet your neighbour’s possessions? Or do you approve of the greed which has corroded your society and left so many hungry?

What is it my beloved people that escapes you? You indulge in every impurity and reap the harvest of heartbreak, disease, depression and loneliness. Can you not see by your own fruits what is true and what is false or what is truth and what is falsehood? Judge a tree by its fruits. Have I not given you a mind to discern what is evil and what is good?

My commandments bring life. O how blind you are! How hard of heart! You see before your very eyes the fruit of the anti-gospel preached by the false prophets of the adversary. All around is the fruit of this false gospel which you embrace. How much death must you witness in your news? How many killings of the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the helpless, the poor, the war victims — how much blood must flow through your civilizations before your pride is broken and you turn to Me? How much violence must possess your youth, how many drug addictions, family breakups, hatreds, divisions, arguments, and strife of all kind must you taste and see before you recognize the true and tested Gospel of My Word?  

What shall I do? Whom shall I send? Would you believe if I sent My very Mother to you? Would you believe if the sun were to spin, the angels to appear, and the souls of purgatory to cry out in voices you can hear?  What is left for Heaven to do?

Thus, I am sending you a Storm. I am sending you a whirlwind, which will stir your senses, and awaken your souls. Pay attention! It comes! It will not delay. Do I not count each and every soul that drops forever into the fires of Hell, eternally separated from Me? Do you not think that I weep tears, that if it were possible, would drown its very flames? How long can I endure the destruction of My little ones?

My people. My people! How terrible it is that you will not hear the Gospel! How terrible it is for this generation that it will not listen. How terrible indeed is the Good News — when it is refused — and thus, changed from a ploughshare into a sword.

My people… come back to Me!

Then the LORD answered me and said:
Write down the vision;
Make it plain upon tablets,
so that the one who reads it may run.
For the vision is a witness for the appointed time,
a testimony to the end; it will not disappoint.
If it delays, wait for it,
it will surely come, it will not be late.
(Habbakuk 3:2-3)

THE SECOND ACT

Posted on  by Mark

…we must not underestimate
the disturbing scenarios that threaten our future,
or the powerful new instruments
that the “culture of death” has at its disposal. 
—POPE BENEDICT XVI, Caritas in Veritate, n. 75

THERE is no question the world needs a great reset. This is the heart of Our Lord and Our Lady’s warnings spanning over a century: there is a renewal coming, a Great Renewal, and mankind has been given the choice to usher in its triumph, either through repentance, or through the Refiner’s fire. In Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta’s writings, we have perhaps the most explicit prophetic revelation revealing the proximate times in which you and I are now living:

Every two thousand years I have renewed the world. In the first two thousand years, I renewed it with the Deluge; in the second two thousand, I renewed it with my coming upon earth when I manifested my Humanity, from which, as if from many fissures, my Divinity shone forth. The good ones and the very Saints of the following two thousand years have lived from the fruits of my Humanity and, in drops, they have enjoyed my Divinity. Now we are around the third two thousand years, and there will be a third renewal. This is the reason for the general confusion: it is nothing other than the preparation of the third renewal. If in the second renewal I manifested what my Humanity did and suffered, and very little of what my Divinity was operating, now, in this third renewal, after the earth will be purged and a great part of the current generation destroyed, I will be even more generous with creatures, and I will accomplish the renewal by manifesting what my Divinity did within my Humanity… —Jesus to Luisa Piccarreta, Book of Heaven, Vol. 12, Jan. 29th, 1919 

It seems several popes perceived this epochal change, as strong apocalyptic warnings began to be issued from the late 19th century to the present day (see Why Aren’t the Popes Shouting?). But now we have come to the final hour, and according to Our Lady of Medjugorje and her recent message, mankind has made its choice:

…mankind has decided for death. That is why He sent me to keep instructing you that, without God, you do not have a future. October 25, 2022

Why would humanity choose “death” for its future? The answer is that the greater portion of mankind has been deceived into believing that the current trajectory of the global narrative is a path of life — as much as Adam and Eve thought they were choosing not only life, but a path to be like gods:

For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. (Genesis 3:5)

Though couched in half-truths, it was, nonetheless, a lie from the “father of lies.” And this same lie is being repeated in our times…

The Great Reset

If we are on the threshold of the Great Renewal, then you can be certain that Satan has already prepared his counterfeit.[1] And it is called the “Great Reset” — a United Nations-backed “Fourth Industrial Revolution” — funded and driven by unelected representatives and “philanthropists” who have declared, quite blatantly, that the world as you and I know it is over. 

Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never. —Founder of the World Economic Forum, Professor Klaus Schwab; co-author of Covid-19: The Great Reset; cnbc.com, July 13th, 2020

The “first act” of this Great Reset was introducing a biological weapon to the global population — and then its panacea. 

For the world at large, normalcy only returns when we’ve largely vaccinated the entire global population. —Bill Gates speaking to The Financial Times on April 8, 2020; 1:27 mark: youtube.com

That goal has not been abandoned; it is only part of the unfolding plan to destroy “normal” so as to “build back better.” The other pillar of the Great Reset is “climate change” and the two go hand in hand. 

Some leaders and decision-makers who were already at the forefront of the fight against climate change may want to take advantage of the shock inflicted by the pandemic to implement long-lasting and wider environmental changes. They will, in effect, make “good use” of the pandemic by not letting the crisis go to waste. — Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret, COVID-19: The Great Reset, p. 145, Forum Publishing 

This is akin to setting the house on fire — and then declaring what a great opportunity it is to build something new. Or the fox decrying the slaughter in the henhouse — and then promising he will repair the hole in the wall. 

So where is this all headed? COVID-19 and “climate change” are nothing short of the “smoke of Satan” to hide a brilliant diabolical plan to ultimately establish the kingdom of antichrist on earth. It is a transhumanist future that seeks to mimic eternity through the fusion of our “physical, biological, and digital identities” [2] so that man can “be like God.” After all, this is what the Antichrist himself declares…

…who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. (2 Thess 2:4)

But such a godless reset involves overturning the very foundations of the present order that Christendom has largely built and that have been acting as a bulwark against chaos.

Increasingly, the traditional family unit is being replaced by the trans-national family network… The Fourth Industrial Revolution, finally, will change not only what we do but also who we are. It will affect our identity and all the issues associated with it: our sense of privacy, our notions of ownership, our consumption patterns, the time we devote to work and leisure, and how we develop our careers, cultivate our skills, meet people, and nurture relationships. It is already changing our health and leading to a “quantified” self, and sooner than we think it may lead to human augmentation. The list is endless because it is bound only by our imagination. —Klaus Schwab, The Fourth Industrial Revolutionp. 78; “The Fourth Industrial Revolution: what it means, how to respond”, January 14th, 2016, weforum.org

There you have in a nutshell the “errors of Russia” — a Marxist agenda with a capitalist twist. It is, in fact, Isaiah’s Prophecy of Global Communism being fulfilled in real-time. One of the “now words” here five years ago was that “climate change” is part of the great deception in our times.[3] 

The “first act” was COVID. On May 8, 2020, an “Appeal for the Church and the World to Catholics and All People of Good Will” was published.[4] Its signatories include Cardinal Joseph Zen, Cardinal Gerhard Müeller (Prefect Emeritus of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith), Bishop Joseph Strickland, and Steven Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute, to name but a few. Among the appeal’s pointed messages are the warning that “under the pretext of a virus… an odious technological tyranny ” is being established “in which nameless and faceless people can decide the fate of the world”.

We have reason to believe, on the basis of official data on the incidence of the epidemic as related to the number of deaths, that there are powers interested in creating panic among the world’s population with the sole aim of permanently imposing unacceptable forms of restriction on freedoms, of controlling people and of tracking their movements. The imposition of these illiberal measures is a disturbing prelude to the realization of a world government beyond all control. —Appeal, May 8th, 2020

Now comes the “second act”…

The Second Act: “Climate Emergency”

Without swift and immediate action, at an unprecedented pace and scale, we will miss the window of opportunity to ‘reset’ for… a more sustainable and inclusive future. In other words, the global pandemic is a wake-up call we cannot ignore… With the urgency that now exists around avoiding irreversible damage to our planet, we must put ourselves on what can only be described as a war footing. —King (Prince) Charles, dailymail.com, September 20th, 2020

After three years of patently false lies peddled through the media on both the pandemic and the so-called “safe and effective” experimental injections, we appear ready for the “second act” of the Great Reset. Dear leader, Klaus Schwab, sets the stage:

While for a pandemic, a majority of citizens will tend to agree with the necessity to impose coercive measures, they will resist constraining policies in the case of environmental risks where the evidence can be disputed: fighting a pandemic does not require a substantial change of the underlying socio-economic model and of our consumption habits. Fighting environmental risks does. —Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret, COVID-19: The Great Reset, pp. 136-137  

It will be no surprise to the reader, then, that the World Health Organization declared “climate change” to be “the single biggest health threat facing humanity.”[5] But Schwab is right: the “evidence” is indeed disputed.

In other words, the footprints of the “father of lies” are all over this too.

The “Climate Deniers”

And that’s the point of this article: to expose the lies that are leading humanity further into slavery. I’m not a climatologist. I’m a former news reporter. And like I did during the pandemic, I am compelled to expose the underbelly of the “narrative” that is being forced down the throats of average citizens who are simply trying to make a living and raise a family. This isn’t about politics but a great deception that will ultimately cost souls.

A growing number of climatologists in the world are admitting that a man-made “global warming” crisis is based on junk science. 1,100 researchers recently signed a declaration stating that there is ‘no climate emergency.’ David Siegel, one of the signatories, declared: “It’s clear that CO2 has almost nothing to do with climate” — unlike data showing that ocean currents have more impact than the so-called “Greenhouse effect”. Swedish climate expert Dr. Fred Goldberg agrees that carbon dioxide is not the main cause of global warming and that climate change is not affected by human action but mainly by solar activity and ocean currents. Geologist Gregory Wrightstone makes a ‘massively compelling case’ that pretty much everything we have been told about climate change is the opposite of the truth.

In fact, there has been a decrease in hurricane activity. Vijay Jayaraj, a research associate at the CO2 Coalition, notes that “Arctic summer temperatures have been not at all different from the 44-year average and that summer sea ice is above decadal averages.” Despite this year’s drought in parts of North America, heat waves are not taking place more frequently than expected. In fact, a new paper published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) written by meteorologist William Kininmonth, a former consultant to the World Meteorological Organisation’s Commission for Climatology and former head of the Australian Government’s National Climate Centre, argues that the oceans are the “vital inertial and thermal flywheels” of the climate system. If one wants to control climate, it will be necessary to control the oceans, he argues. “Efforts to decarbonise in the hope of affecting global temperatures will be in vain,” he adds. An Italian review of extreme weather says there is ‘no evidence’ of ‘climate crisis’ in current data, according to their paper. Then there is the claim that climate is killing people when “ever fewer people die from climate-related catastrophes,” wrote Bjørn Lomborg, former director of the Danish government’s Environmental Assessment Institute. “As population has quadrupled, deaths have dropped 20-fold,” he said (see this graph). “Death risk from climate is down 99% from the 1920s.” And defying Al Gore and Greta Thunberg’s hysteria, data shows that sea levels have not risen in all of recorded history.

He set for the sea its limit, so that the waters should not transgress his command. (Proverbs 8:29)

The Great Fudging

What has been breached is ethical science. A new study at The Heartland Institute shows that 96% of climate data used to justify this climate push is flawed. (Note: it was flawed computer modelling that also drove COVID-19 pandemic hysteria). Dr. Judith Curry likewise agrees that the narrative is driven by flawed computer models and that the real goal ought to be minimizing air and water pollution, not carbon dioxide. Tom Harris, Executive Director of the International Climate Science Coalition, was a climate alarmist who has now reversed his position due to flawed “models that don’t work,” and is now calling the whole narrative a hoax. Indeed, one study admits that the 12 major university and government models that have been used to predict climate warming are faulty. Remember “climategate” when scientists were caught deliberately altering statistics and ignoring satellite data that showed no warming? Funny how that has been swept under the carpet (much like Pfizer’s lies of late). 

Indeed, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been caught several times fudging data in order to rush forward their agenda, most notably, the Paris Climate Agreement, which has been the first step toward the redistribution of global wealth through punishing “carbon taxes”.

But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore… —Ottmar Edenhofer, IPCC, dailysignal.com, November 19th, 2011

No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world. —former Canadian Minister of the Environment, Christine Stewart; quoted by Terence Corcoran, “Global Warming: The Real Agenda,” Financial Post, December 26th, 1998; from the Calgary Herald, December, 14, 1998

This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution… It is a process, because of the depth of the transformation. —former Chief Climate Change official of the United Nations, November 2nd, 2015; europa.eu

Edenholfer is right — this doesn’t sound like environmental policy. So how do you convince the public? Well…

The IPCC was caught exaggerating data on Himalayan glacier melt; they ignored that there was indeed a ‘pause‘ in global warming: top climate scientists were instructed to ‘cover up’ the fact that the Earth’s temperature hadn’t risen for the last 15 years. The University of Alabama in Huntsville, considered the most reliable in gathering global temperature data sets developed from satellites, has shown that there has been no global warming at all for the last seven years as of January 2022. Climate scientists there, John Christy and Richard McNider, found that by removing the climate effects of volcanic eruptions early on in the satellite temperature record, there showed virtually no change in the rate of warming since the early 1990s. In North America, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was yet again caught exaggerating  ‘global warming’ by fiddling with raw temperature data. Several other climatologists have likewise torn apart the hypothesis of man-made global warming here while several articles examine the overall scientific fraud. No surprise, then, that there has been a run of 50 years of failed eco-apocalyptic predictions. But as King Charles has said, this is about a “window of opportunity” — apparently not about honest science.

Perhaps all of this is best summarized by Dr. Patrick Moore, former member and founder of Greenpeace. He left the organization when it became radicalized or, in his words, ‘hijacked’. Climate change, he says, is based on a ‘false narrative.’ 

Climate change has become a powerful political force for many reasons. First, it is universal; we are told everything on Earth is threatened. Second, it invokes the two most powerful human motivators: fear and guilt… Third, there is a powerful convergence of interests among key elites that support the climate “narrative.” Environmentalists spread fear and raise donations; politicians appear to be saving the Earth from doom; the media has a field day with sensation and conflict; science institutions raise billions in grants, create whole new departments, and stoke a feeding frenzy of scary scenarios; business wants to look green, and get huge public subsidies for projects that would otherwise be economic losers, such as wind farms and solar arrays. Fourth, the Left sees climate change as a perfect means to redistribute wealth from industrial countries to the developing world and the UN bureaucracy. —Dr. Patrick Moore, P.h.d., co-founder of Greenpeace; “Why I am a Climate Change Skeptic”, March 20th, 2015, Heartland Institute

It is no surprise that this notion of “economic justice” has appealed to Pope Francis who has now given his unequivocal support to the climate agenda. Tragically, like the “first act” where he was grossly misled on both the severity of the pandemic as well as the solutions (see here and here), he has already stepped into the next propaganda landmine: 

The pollution that kills is not only carbon dioxide pollution; inequality also mortally pollutes our planet. —POPE FRANCIS, September 24, 2022, Assisi, Italy; lifesitenews.com

It was, to say the least, a shocking statement. Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant nor is it toxic. It is the primary carbon source for life on Earth, essential for plant life. Studies show that it increases vitamins and mineral output in plants as well as their medicinal properties. The more carbon dioxide, the greener the planet, the more food there is. As Jesus said to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta:

…the air has everything in its power, and becomes life of every created being… God placed in the air all the substance of the goods it produces — that is, nourishing, respiratory, vegetative power, and the like. It contains as though many seeds of all the good it encloses. —November 23, 1924, Volume 17

Carbon dioxide is God’s gas for growing. Of course, the Pope is rightly concerned about economic inequalities, but he seems oblivious to the fact that the promises of the Great Reset — like the forbidden fruit in Eden — are not only creating more poverty but are literally killing people:[6]

We do not have any scientific proof that we are the cause of the global warming that has occurred in the last 200 years…The alarmism is driving us through scare tactics to adopt energy policies that are going to create a huge amount of energy poverty among the poor people. It’s not good for people and it’s not good for the environment… In a warmer world we can produce more food. —Dr. Patrick Moore, Fox Business News with Stewart Varney, January 2011; Forbes.com

Nonetheless, the Vatican has continued to endorse the Paris Climate Agreement — even with its inclusion of a pro-abortion agenda

The Great Ruse

“Climate change” is a ruse, a distraction from the real problems that are first and foremost spiritual. The greatest pollutant is sin – and we have reached emergency levels. But these sins also manifest in the physical realm with practical consequences. A few years back, I wrote The Great Poisoningwarning that it is not carbon dioxide but pollutants in the air, water, food, cosmetics, farm chemicals, etc. that pose an existential threat to humanity. “More than 5.5 million people die annually due to both outdoor and household air pollution, making it one of the leading global risk factors for disease,” according to new research. And several countries have declared sexually transmitted diseases to be an epidemic. But how little of this is mentioned by the architects of the Great Reset. 

Instead, we are told by health officials (of all people), such as Canadian Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam, that the “Biggest threat facing humanity’ is ‘climate change’ and that ‘health needs to be at the heart of #ClimateAction.’ This, while big banks are being increasingly forced to comply with the climate agenda. And now we are warned that we are facing imminent climate lockdowns, perhaps every two years as “climate change” is apparently the cause of child obesity, an increase in rapedomestic abuse of women, and according to Bill Gates, the next pandemic.

Don’t feel badly if you think these assertions are ridiculous. They are. But if you think that being an “anti-vaxxer” was public sin number one, climate activist Michael E. Mann says, “denial of climate change is deadlier even than the denial of the basic science behind COVID-19.” Here we go again with the demonization of dissenters — even if they have Ph.Ds. Like the rollout and enforcement of pandemic measures, we need to prepare for the same fear-mongering, threats, and manipulation to enforce the climate change narrative at Warp Speed. That includes being forced to accept new mandates including lockdownshigher taxessynthetic meatelectric vehicles (or driving nothing at all), heat without natural gassmaller pets and even the prospect of eating insects as a food source.

Pope Francis recently addressed the faithful saying, “let us pray that the UN COP27 and COP15 [climate] summits may unite the human family.”[7] But as it stands, the Great Reset has done nothing but divide humanity whilst destroying much of the infrastructure in the process. And that’s just from the pandemic measures — implemented, as it were, for the “common good.”

Our Lady, as well as Pope Emeritus Benedict, have a different warning:

Dearly beloved children, today I am here again to ask you for prayer: prayer for this world that is increasingly enveloped in darkness and gripped by evil. My children, pray for peace, increasingly threatened by the powerful of this earth. Our Lady of Zaro to Angela, October 26, 2022

We think of the great powers of the present day, of the anonymous financial interests which turn men into slaves, which are no longer human things, but are an anonymous power which men serve, by which men are tormented and even slaughtered. They are a destructive power, a power that menaces the world. —BENEDICT XVI, Reflection after the reading of the office for the Third Hour, Vatican City, October 11, 2010

IS THE EASTERN GATE OPENING?

Posted on  by Mark

Dear young people, it is up to you to be the 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)

First published December 1st, 2017… a message of hope and victory.

WHEN the sun sets, even though it is the beginning of nightfall, we enter into a vigil. It is the anticipation of a new dawn. Every Saturday evening, the Catholic Church celebrates a vigil Mass precisely in anticipation of the “day of the Lord”—Sunday—even though our communal prayer is made on the threshold of midnight and the deepest darkness. 

I believe this is the period that we are living now—that vigil that “anticipates” if not hastens the Day of the Lord. And just as dawn announces the rising Sun, so too, there is a dawn before the Day of the Lord. That dawn is the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In fact, there are signs already that this dawn is approaching….

STARTLING STATEMENTS

On November 14th, 2017, one of the seers of the famed apparitions at Medjugorje (which the Ruini Commission, appointed by Pope Benedict, reportedly approved in its first stages) stirred some waves during her testimony in St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna:

I believe that with this year, as she said, begins the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart. —Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti, Marytv.tv; comment is made at 1:27:20 in the video

Due to poor communication where the English translator stumbles, the initial translation was that this year—2017—the Immaculate Heart would triumph. However, to many of us, this sounded incorrect for a number of obvious reasons. Indeed, it has since been confirmed that what Marija said is that she believes it “begins” this year.

Five months earlier, Our Lady said in a message to Mirjana, one of the six seers:

This time is a turning point. That is why I am calling you anew to faith and hope… My motherly heart desires for you, apostles of my love, to be little lights of the world, to illuminate there where darkness wants to begin to reign, to show the true way by your prayer and love, to save souls. I am with you. Thank you. —June 2, 2017

The year before, Mirjana had written in her autobiography:

Our Lady told me many things that I cannot yet reveal. For now, I can only hint at what our future holds, but I do see indications that the events are already in motion. Things are slowly starting to develop. As Our Lady says, look at the signs of the times, and pray.My Heart Will Triumph, p. 369;  CatholicShop Publishing, 2016

For seers who have been extremely tight-lipped for over three decades on giving any kind of indication on the timing of coming events (beyond that they will happen within their lifetimes), these are fairly significant statements. Nonetheless, they should be properly discerned along with the rest of the “signs of the times” and always set into the proper context: what God asks of us now is the same as always—to simply be faithful to Him in all things. 

And then there is this blunt insight from Patriarch Kirill, Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church, who also sees crucial developments on the horizon:

…we are entering a critical period in the course of human civilization. This can already be seen with the naked eye. You have to be blind not to notice the approaching awe-inspiring moments in history that the apostle and evangelist John was talking about in the Book of Revelation. Christ the Savior Cathedral, Moscow; November 20th, 2017; rt.com

His commentary on the times was followed by that of Cardinal Raymond Burke, a member of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura:

…there is a feeling that in today’s world that is based on secularism with a completely anthropocentric approach, by which we think we can create our own meaning of life and meaning of the family and so on, the Church itself seems to be confused. In that sense one may have the feeling that the Church gives the appearance of being unwilling to obey the mandates of Our Lord. Then perhaps we have arrived at the End Times. —Catholic Herald, Nov. 30th, 2017

What other signs, exactly, do these souls see?

THE “SIGNS OF THE TIMES”

I think we can understand better what is here and coming if I briefly recap what the early Church Fathers taught. And that is that the “Day of the Lord” is not a twenty-four hour day, but a symbol of a period of time in the future when Christ would reign in a decisive way in His Church. They saw this “Day” as represented by the “thousand years” spoken of in the Book of Revelation after the death of Antichrist and the chaining of Satan. [1]

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. —Fr. Charles Arminjon (1824-1885), The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life, p. 56-57; Sophia Institute Press

What is pertinent to the present discussion is how they saw the Day of the Lord unfold…

…this day of ours, which is bounded by the rising and the setting of the sun, is a representation of that great day to which the circuit of a thousand years affixes its limits. —Lactantius, Fathers of the Church: The Divine Institutes, Book VII, Chapter 14, Catholic Encyclopedia; http://www.newadvent.org

As Church Father Lactantius notes, the end of one day and the beginning of the next is marked by the “setting of the sun.” That is why the Catholic Church anticipates Sunday, “the day of the Lord”, with the Saturday evening vigil Mass, or the day of Christ’s Resurrection with the Easter Vigil.

Given this analogy, can we not see the sun setting in our times as we begin the third millennium? Indeed, Pope Benedict XIV compared this present hour to the collapse of the Roman Empire:

The disintegration of the key principles of law and of the fundamental moral attitudes underpinning them burst open the dams which until that time had protected peaceful coexistence among peoples. The sun was setting over an entire world. Frequent natural disasters further increased this sense of insecurity. There was no power in sight that could put a stop to this decline. All the more insistent, then, was the invocation of the power of God: the plea that he might come and protect his people from all these threats. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Address to the Roman Curia, December 20th, 2010

It is as though we have entered the vigil hour. Clearly, some souls alive to the “signs of the times” see certain significant developments occurring in 2017. 

In 2010, Pope Benedict delivered a homily on May 13th in Fatima where Our Lady promised in 1917 that “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” He too made a passing reference to 2017, which is the hundredth year after that promise was made:

May the seven years which separate us from the centenary of the apparitions hasten the fulfilment of the prophecy of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to the glory of the Most Holy Trinity. —POPE BENEDICT XIV, Esplanade of the Shrine of Our Lady of Fátima, May 13th, 2010; vatican.va

He clarified in a later interview that he was not suggesting that the Triumph would be accomplished in 2017. Rather, 

I said the “triumph” will draw closer. This is equivalent in meaning to our praying for the coming of God’s Kingdom. This statement was not intended—I may be too rationalistic for that—to express any expectation on my part that there is going to be a huge turnaround and that history will suddenly take a totally different course. The point was rather that the power of evil is restrained again and again, that again and again the power of God himself is shown in the Mother’s power and keeps it alive. The Church is always called upon to do what God asked of Abraham, which is to see to it that there are enough righteous men to repress evil and destruction. I understood my words as a prayer that the energies of the good might regain their vigor. So you could say the triumph of God, the triumph of Mary, are quiet, they are real nonetheless.Light of the World, p. 166, A Conversation With Peter Seewald (Ignatius Press)

In other words, Pope Benedict was perfectly describing the approach of a new Day that begins in the darkness of vigil, increases with the appearance of the Morning Star, the first rays of Dawn, until at last, the Son rises:

A new age in which hope liberates us from the shallowness, apathy, and self-absorption which deaden our souls and poison our relationships. Dear young friends, the Lord is asking you to be prophets of this new age… —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Homily, World Youth Day, Sydney, Australia, July 20th, 2008

THE DARKNESS OF VIGIL

Benedict used the word “restrained” above, which evokes the same term used once by St. Paul in 2 Thessalonians when the Apostle refers to a time of apostasy or lawlessness that would precede the Antichrist, the “lawless one”, who is presently “restrained” by something unspecified:

And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. But the one who restrains is to do so only for the present, until he is removed from the scene. (2 Thess 2:6-7)

(For an explanation on this “restrainer”, see Removing the Restrainer.) 

The essential point is that the tides of evil advance when there are not “enough righteous men” (and women) to push them back. As Pope Pius X said:

In our time, more than ever, before the greatest asset of the evilly disposed is the cowardice and weakness of good men, and all the vigor of Satan’s reign is due to the easygoing weakness of Catholics. O, if I might ask the divine redeemer, as the prophet Zachary did in spirit, ‘What are these wounds in your hands?’ the answer would not be doubtful. ‘With these I was wounded in the house of those who loved me. I was wounded by my friends who did nothing to defend me and who, on every occasion, made themselves the accomplices of my adversaries.’ This reproach can be leveled at the weak and timid Catholics of all countries. —Publication of the Decree of the Heroic Virtues of St. Joan of Arc, etc., December 13th, 1908; vatican.va

This has been the consistent message of Our Lady in all her apparitions around the world since Fatima: the need for conversion and the active participation of the Church in the salvation of souls through penance, reparation, and our witness. That is, her Triumph will not happen without the body of Christ. This much is suggested in Genesis 3:15 when God addresses the serpent in the Eden:

I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; they will strike at your head, while you strike at their heel. (NAB)

One of the most serious “signs of the times,” as highlighted by Patriarch Kirill and nearly every pope of the last century or more, [2] is the increase of wickedness and chilling of charity as immorality, division, and war spread throughout the world. 

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 has 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

And so then, in this hour of vigil when the flame of faith is dimming and the light of truth is being snuffed out in the world, Benedict asks:

Why not ask [Jesus] 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

THE MORNING STAR

One of the titles of Jesus in Scripture is “morning star”. But Christ also applies it to those who are faithful to Him:

I myself have received power from my Father; and I will give him the morning star. (Rev 2:27-28)

It may refer to the perfect communion with the Lord enjoyed by those who persevere to the end: the symbolism of the power given to the victors… sharing in the resurrection and glory of Christ. —The Navarre Bible, Revelation; footnote, p. 50

Who is more in perfect communion with the Lord than Our Lady, she who is “the image of the Church to come”? [3] Indeed, she is:

Mary, the shining star that announces the Sun. —POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II, Meeting with Young People at Air Base of Cuatro Vientos, Madrid, Spain; May 3rd, 2003; www.vatican.va

As such, her apparitions herald the proximity of the Day of the Lord, more specifically, Dawn. As St. Louis de Montfort taught:

The Holy Spirit speaking through the Fathers of the Church, also calls our Lady the Eastern Gate, through which the High Priest, Jesus Christ, enters and goes out into the world. Through this gate he entered the world the first time and through this same gate he will come the second time. —St. Louis de Montfort, Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, n. 262

Here also is a key to understanding Our Lady’s apparitions and her role at this hour. If she is an image of the Church, then the Church is likewise to become an image of her

When either is spoken of, the meaning can be understood of both, almost without qualification. —Blessed Isaac of Stella, Liturgy of the Hours, Vol. I, pg. 252

It is precisely when “righteous men and women” conform themselves to Mary in her “fiat” (ie. living in the Divine Will), that the “morning star” will begin to rise in them as a sign that the Dawn is approaching and the breaking of Satan’s power. 

The Holy Spirit, finding his dear Spouse present again in souls, will come down into them with great power. He will fill them with his gifts, especially wisdom, by which they will produce wonders of grace…  —St. Louis de Montfort, True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, n.217, Montfort Publications 

Then the legion of little souls, victims of merciful Love, will become as numerous ‘as the stars of heaven and the sands of the seashore’. It will be terrible to Satan; it will help the Blessed Virgin to crush his proud head completely. —St. Thérése of Lisieux, The Legion of Mary Handbook, p. 256-257

This is why Our Lady is appearing daily now in places throughout the world. Because it is our response, and our response alone, that will determine the longevity and intensity of the hard labor pains that are beginning to besiege the world.

You will be the dawning of a new day, if you are the bearers of the Life, which is Christ! —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Address to the Young People of Apostolic Nunciature, Lima Peru, May 15th, 1988; www.vatican.va

In the approved revelations to Elizabeth Kindelmann, Our Lady speaks of the coming of the “Flame of Love” of her Immaculate Heart which “is Jesus Christ himself.” [4] It is an interior coming of Jesus in the hearts of His faithful through the Eastern Gate, who is the Blessed Mother:

The soft light of my Flame of Love will light up spreading fire over the entire surface of the earth, humiliating Satan rendering him powerless, completely disabled. Do not contribute to prolong the pains of childbirth. —Our Lady to Elizabeth Kindelmann; The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, “Spiritual Diary”, p. 177; Imprimatur Archbishop Péter Erdö, Primate of Hungary

We possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable. You will do well to be attentive to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. (2 Peter 1:19)

…turning our eyes to the future, we confidently await the dawn of a new Day… As the third millennium of the Redemption draws near, God is preparing a great springtime for Christianity and we can already see its first signs. May Mary, the Morning Star, help us to say with ever new ardor our “yes” to the Father’s plan for salvation that all nations and tongues may see his glory. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Message for World Mission Sunday, n.9, October 24th, 1999; www.vatican.va

Now more than ever it is crucial that you be “watchers of the dawn”, the lookouts who announce the light of dawn and the new springtime of the Gospel of which the buds can already be seen. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, 18th World Youth Day, April 13th, 2003; vatican.va

IS THE EASTERN GATE OPENING?

If the Triumph is “beginning”, then what are its signs? The answer, at this moment, is not so much the visible signs of “light”—as though we see the first rays of dawn—but the arrival of the vigil which precedes it. Those “buds” that John Paul II speaks of are those courageous and faithful witnesses who have arisen at this hour. 

My children, it is a time of vigilance. In this vigil I am calling you to prayer, love and trust. As my Son will be looking in your hearts, my motherly heart desires for Him to see unconditional trust and love in them. The united love of my apostles will live, will conquer, and will expose evil. —Our Lady allegedly to Mirjana, November 2nd, 2016 

Remarkably, we are now seeing evil exposed in a most unexpected way as scandals, both within the Church and in the secular realm, are coming to light. It’s almost as if the anticipation of Dawn is already manifesting. 

God is not indifferent to good and evil; he enters the history of humanity mysteriously with his judgment that sooner or later unmasks evil, defends its victims and points out the way of justice. However, the goal of God’s action is never the ruin, the pure and simple condemnation or elimination, of the sinner… After purification through trial and suffering, the dawn of a new era is about to break. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, General Audience, September 10, 2003

Moreover, Jesus referred to the events that would precede and accompany the Day of the Lord as “labor pains”[5] that will precede a new birth, a “resurrection” or “triumph” of the Church.[6] St. John refers to these pains as the breaking of the “seals” in Revelation. It is the culmination of wars, division, famine, economic collapse, plagues, and earthquakes from place to place. It is also the rise of false prophets who, above all, promote an anti-gospel—a solution to the world’s problems at the price of apostasy from Christ and His Church. Do we not see this in the misleading promises of science, the false peace of political correctness, and social-engineering by those “anonymous powers”, those “Masters of conscience” who are forcing mankind into a singular way of thinking?[7]

It is not the beautiful globalization of unity of all Nations, each one with their own customs, instead it is the globalization of hegemonic uniformity, it is the single thought. And this sole thought is the fruit of worldliness. —POPE FRANCIS, Homily, November 18th, 2013; Zenit

How many people in our times now believe that the triumph of good over evil in the world will be achieved through social revolution or social evolution? How many have succumbed to the belief that man will save himself when sufficient knowledge and energy are applied to the human condition? I would suggest that this intrinsic perversity now dominates the entire Western world. —Michael D. O’Brien, author, artist, and lecturer; talk at St. Patrick’s basilica in Ottawa, Canada, September 20th, 2005; studiobrien.com

It is this individualism that Pope Benedict sees as the most “terrifying sign of the times”:

there is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a “better than” and a “worse than”. Nothing is good or bad in itself. Everything depends on the circumstances and on the end in view. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Address to the Roman Curia, December 20th, 2010

If the final stages of the Triumph are “beginning” this year, then we can expect that evil will continue to be exposed as the consciences of this generation are (literally?) shaken; an increase in natural disasters and wars and rumour of wars; further fomentation of a massive collapse in the economy; and more importantly, expect to see Our Lady to continue quietly triumphing in hearts. For the dawn never comes all at once. It is ‘quiet… but real nonetheless.’

When will it happen, this fiery deluge of pure love with which you are to set the whole world ablaze and which is to come, so gently yet so forcefully, that all nations…. will be caught up in its flames and be converted? …When you breathe your Spirit into them, they are restored and the face of the earth is renewed. Send this all-consuming Spirit upon the earth to create priests who burn with this same fire and whose ministry will renew the face of the earth and reform your Church. —From God Alone: The Collected Writings of St. Louis Marie de Montfort; April 2014, Magnificat, p. 331

THE FAITHFUL SONS

The priesthood has been at the heart of many of Our Lady’s prophetic revelations in the coming defeat of Satan. Another sign of her approaching Triumph must certainly be the army of young priests emerging today who are faithful sons to Christ and His Church. If Mary is the Ark of the New Covenant, which is one of her titles in the Church—then her Triumph and the triumph of the Church have been prefigured in the Old Testament in a victory that comes at dawn

When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord, your God, which the levitical priests will carry, you must break camp and follow it, that you may know the way to take, for you have not gone over this road before… Joshua had the priests take up the ark of the Lord. The seven priests bearing the ram’s horns marched in front of the ark of the Lord… on the seventh day, beginning at daybreak, they marched around the city seven times in the same manner… As the horns blew, the people began to shout… the wall collapsed, and the people stormed the city in a frontal attack and took it. (Joshua 3:3-4; 5:13-6:21)

We are given reason to believe that, towards the end of time and perhaps sooner than we expect, God will raise up people filled with the Holy Spirit and imbued with the spirit of Mary. Through them Mary, Queen most powerful, will work great wonders in the world, destroying sin and setting up the kingdom of Jesus her Son upon the RUINS of the corrupt kingdom which is this great earthly Babylon(Rev.18:20) —St. Louis de Montfort, Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin,n. 58-59

Last, a sign that the Triumph is nearing is the fact that St. John Paul II asked the youth in 2002 to herald it:

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… watchmen who proclaim to the world a new dawn of hope, brotherhood and peace. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Novo Millennio Inuente, n.9; Address to the Guanelli Youth Movement, April 20th, 2002, www.vatican.va

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.  —POPE PIUX XII, Urbi et Orbi address,March 2nd, 1957; vatican.va

The Church, which comprises the elect, is fittingly styled daybreak or dawn… It will be fully day for her when she shines with the perfect brilliance of interior light. —St. Gregory the Great, Pope; Liturgy of the Hours, Vol III, p. 308 (see also The Smoldering Candle and Wedding Preparations to understand the coming corporate mystical union, which will be preceded by a “dark night of the soul” for the Church.)


…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)

THE HOUR TO SHINE

Posted on  by Mark

THERE is a lot of chatter these days among the Catholic remnant about “refuges” — physical places of divine protection. It is understandable as it is within the natural law for us to want to survive, to avoid pain and suffering. The nerve endings in our body reveal these truths And yet, there is a higher truth yet: that our salvation passes through the Cross. As such, pain and suffering now take on a redemptive value, not only for our own souls but for that of others as we fill up “what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of his body, which is the Church” (Col 1:24).

The Refuges

In our times, God has provided a spiritual refuge for believers, and it is the heart, no less, of our Blessed Mother:

My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God. —Our Lady of Fatima, June 13, 1917, The Revelation of the Two Hearts in Modern Times, www.ewtn.com

Jesus affirmed this again in the approved revelations to the Hungarian, Elizabeth Kindelmann:

My Mother is Noah’s Ark… —The Flame of Love, p. 109; Imprimatur from Archbishop Charles Chaput

And yet, both Scripture and Sacred Tradition confirm that, most especially in the latter times, there will also be places of physical refuge — what Church Father Lactantius and St. John Chrysostom called “solitudes” (read The Refuge for Our Times). In other words, there will come a time when it will be necessary that the flock of Christ will require the physical protection of God in order to preserve the Church — just as Our Lord Himself and Mary required Joseph to take them into Egypt to flee the persecution of Herod. 

It is necessary that a small flock subsist, no matter how small it might be. —POPE PAUL VI, The Secret Paul VI, Jean Guitton, p. 152-153, Reference (7), p. ix.

But it is not yet that time. Indeed, we ought to flee Babylon — that is, depart from the depravity and corruption that has now infected nearly every institution, including yes, even parts of the Church. Of Babylon, St. John warns:

Depart from her, my people, so as not to take part in her sins and receive a share in her plagues, for her sins are piled up to the sky, and God remembers her crimes. (Rev 18:4-5)

And yet, brothers and sisters, it is precisely because of the general apostasy that this is the hour to shine in the darkness — not extinguish the Light of Christ beneath the blanket of self-preservation. 

Do not be afraid to go out on the streets and into public places, like the first Apostles who preached Christ and the Good News of salvation in the squares of cities, towns and villages. This is no time to be ashamed of the Gospel. It is the time to preach it from the rooftops. Do not be afraid to break out of comfortable and routine modes of living, in order to take up the challenge of making Christ known in the modern “metropolis”. It is you who must “go out into the byroads” and invite everyone you meet to the banquet which God has prepared for his people. The Gospel must not be kept hidden because of fear or indifference. It was never meant to be hidden away in private. It has to be put on a stand so that people may see its light and give praise to our heavenly Father. —Homily, Cherry Creek State Park Homily, Denver, Colorado, August 15th, 1993; vatican.va

You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father. (Matt 5:14-16)

As Jesus said again to Elizabeth:

The Great Storm is coming and it will carry away indifferent souls who are consumed by laziness. The great danger will erupt when I take away my hand of protection. Warn everyone, especially the priests, so they are shaken out of their indifference… Do not love comfort. Do not be cowards. Do not wait. Confront the Storm to save souls. Give yourselves to the work. If you do nothing, you abandon the earth to Satan and to sin. Open your eyes and see all the dangers that claim victims and threaten your own souls. —The Flame of Love, p. 62, 77, 34; Kindle Edition; Imprimatur by Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, PA

But we are only human, eh? If the Apostles fled the Garden of Gethsemane, what about us? Well, dear brothers and sisters, that was before Pentecost. After Pentecost, the Apostles not only did not flee their persecutors but faced them boldly:

“We gave you strict orders [did we not?] to stop teaching in that name. Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and want to bring this man’s blood upon us.” But Peter and the apostles said in reply, “We must obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:28-29)

In other words, if you are afraid, it is time to enter the upper room of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart and, taking her hand, beg Heaven that a new Pentecost would take place in your soul. Indeed, I truly believe that is the primary function of Consecration to Mary: that the Holy Spirit would likewise overshadow us that we may become true disciples of Jesus — indeed “other Christs” in the world. 

That is the way Jesus is always conceived. That is the way He is reproduced in souls. He is always the fruit of heaven and earth. Two artisans must concur in the work that is at once God’s masterpiece and humanity’s supreme product: the Holy Spirit and the most holy Virgin Mary… for they are the only ones who can reproduce Christ. —Arch. Luis M. Martinez, The Sanctifier, p. 6

The Hour to Shine

And so, the time of refuges will undoubtedly come. But for whom? Some of us are called to be martyrs in this time, whether it is through the shedding of blood or simply the loss of social standing, careers, and even our family’s acceptance. 

I wish to invite young people to open their hearts to the Gospel and become Christ’s witnesses; if necessary, His martyr-witnesses, at the threshold of the Third Millennium. —ST. JOHN PAUL II to the youth, Spain, 1989

Others will be called home through the tribulations that are now inevitable. But for all of us, our goal is Heaven! Our eyes are to be fixed upon the eternal Kingdom whence the veil will be torn asunder and we will see our Lord Jesus face to face! O, to write those words lights a fire in my heart, and I pray, in you, my dear readers. Let us hasten to Jesus, not by deliberately walking into the “coliseum” as the saints of old did. Rather, by plunging ourselves into His Sacred heart where “perfect love drives out fear.” [1] In this way, we may be wholly abandoned to the Divine Will and therefore allow God to accomplish in and through us His Divine Plan. So, let us pray together, then:

You are loved. Therein lies the kernel of strength to conquer everything…

May you “be blameless and innocent, children of God
without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation,
among whom you shine like lights in the world,
as you hold on to the word of life…” 
(Phil 2:16)
