NEWMAN’S PROPHECY

St. John Henry Newman inset by Sir John Everett Millais (1829-1896)
Canonized on October 13th, 2019

 

FOR a number of years, whenever I spoke publicly about the times we are living in, I would have to carefully paint a picture through the words of the popes and saints. People were simply not ready to hear from a nobody-layman like me that we are about to face the greatest struggle the Church has ever gone through—what John Paul II called “the final confrontation” of this era. Nowadays, I barely have to say anything. Most people of faith can tell, despite the good that still exists, that something has gone terribly wrong with our world.

Indeed, we are living in what is known as the “end times”—we have been “officially” since the Ascension of Christ. But that’s not what I nor the popes are referring to. Rather, we are pointing to a specific period of time when the forces of life and death will reach a climatic struggle: the “culture of life” against a “culture of death”, a “woman clothed in the sun” versus a “red dragon, the Church versus an antichurch, the Gospel versus an anti-gospel, a “beast” versus the Body of Christ. In the beginning of my ministry, people would look at me with a dismissive smirk and say, “Ya well, everybody thinks their times are the end times.” And so, I began to quote St. John Henry Newman:

I know that all times are perilous, and that in every time serious and anxious minds, alive to the honor of God and the needs of man, are apt to consider no times so perilous as their own. At all times the enemy of souls assaults with fury the Church which is their true Mother, and at least threatens and frightens when he fails in doing mischief. And all times have their special trials which others have not… Doubtless, but still admitting this, still I think… ours has a darkness different in kind from any that has been before it. The special peril of the time before us is the spread of that plague of infidelity, that the Apostles and our Lord Himself have predicted as the worst calamity of the last times of the Church. 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

Indeed, the darkness that has descended at this hour is perhaps unlike anything the world has ever seen. Logic has been turned upside down. Good (such as the family, marriage, fatherhood, etc.) are now considered societal evils while immorality is praised and celebrated as good. The natural law is scorned while “feelings” are enshrined in law. Graphic violence and fornication are considered entertainment while school children are being taught to masturbate and explore porn. And the Church? Mass attendance continues to rapidly decline in the West as unbelief in the Eucharist surges. Wounded by sexual abuse scandals, weakened by modernism, and made impotent by compromise and cowardice, the Church is suddenly irrelevant to billions of people.

Where are we now in an eschatological sense? It is arguable that we are in the midst of the rebellion and that in fact a strong delusion has come upon many, many people. It is this delusion and rebellion that foreshadows what will happen next: and the man of lawlessness will be revealed. —article, Msgr. Charles Pope,“Are These the Outer Bands of a Coming Judgment?”, November 11th, 2014; blog

While it is much easier for us to make these judgments with the clarity of hindsight, St. John Newman said what is perhaps one of the most prescient things I’ve read from a churchman. In his sermons on the Antichrist, the saint wrote:

Satan may adopt the more alarming weapons of deceit—he may hide himself—he may attempt to seduce us in little things, and so to move the Church, not all at once, but by little and little from her true position. I do believe he has done much in this way in the course of the last few centuries… It is his policy to split us up and divide us, to dislodge us gradually from our rock of strength. And if there is to be a persecution, perhaps it will be then; then, perhaps, when we are all of us in all parts of Christendom so divided, and so reduced, so full of schism, so close upon heresy. When we have cast ourselves upon the world and depend for protection upon it, and have given up our independence and our strength, then [Antichrist] will burst upon us in fury as far as God allows him. Then suddenly the Roman Empire may break up, and Antichrist appear as a persecutor, and the barbarous nations around break in. —Blessed John Henry Newman, Sermon IV: The Persecution of Antichrist

The reason his words are so startling is that Newman foresaw a time when the Church herself becomes an internal mess; a period when she will be moved from her “true position,” her “rock of strength,” and is “so full of schism” and “close upon heresy.” To his listeners in the 19th century, this might have sounded borderline heretical in itself, given that Christ promised that the “the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.” [1] Moreover, the Church was such a solid beacon of truth in Newman’s time that he himself, having plunged into her roots, stated, “To be deep in history is to cease to be Protestant.”

But to be clear, Newman does not say that the Truth, perserved in Sacred Tradition, will be lost. Rather, that there will be a general period of mass confusion, worldliness, and division. He points specifically to a time when the Church and her members will have “cast” themselves into the arms of the State, as it were, having given up our independence and strength. How could Newman, but for the grace of divine illumination, have seen the condition we now find ourselves in? The Church has become dependent, not upon the unconditional generosity of the faithful, but upon her “charitable status” in order to issue tax receipts so as to entice giving. This, in part, has de facto led to a silence from the clergy in order to remain “in good standing” with the government. It has turned bishops in many places into custodians of buildings rather than shepherds of the Gospel. It has moved us “little by little” from our true position and rock, which is a Church that exists, said Pope St. Paul VI, “in order to evangelize.” [2] Indeed, it’s no longer the Church building schools, hospitals, and missionary outposts, but the State and her NGO’s who spread their “good news” of “reproductive health rights” (ie. abortion, contraception, assisted suicide, etc.). In a word, our missionary fervor to “make disciples of all the nations” has all but died in many places. “Going to Mass on Sundays” or even “once a year” at a Easter or Christmas is now seemingly the fulfillment of our baptismal vows. Does anyone hear the words of Jesus thundering above our heads?

I know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, ‘I am rich and affluent and have no need of anything,’ and yet do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked? …Those whom I love, I reprove and chastise. Be earnest, therefore, and repent. (Rev 3:15-19)

What does it mean to be “hot”? It is not a selfie on Instagram. It’s to be alive with the Gospel such that our words and witness become the living presence of Christ in the world. The Second Vatican Council was clear of every Catholic’s obligation to bear the light of Christ:

…it is not enough that the Christian people be present and be organized in a given nation, nor is it enough to carry out an apostolate by way of good example. They are organized for this purpose, they are present for this: to announce Christ to their non-Christian fellow-citizens by word and example, and to aid them toward the full reception of Christ. —Second Vatican Council, Ad Gentes, n. 15; vatican.va

But how many Catholics speak about Jesus Christ in their schools or the marketplace let alone think of this? No, “faith is a personal thing” one hears time and again. But that’s not what Jesus ever said. Rather, He commanded that His followers be “salt and light” in the world and never hide the truth beneath a bushel basket. We ought to shine at night, He said, like a city on a hill.

There is no true evangelization if the name, the teaching, the life, the promises, the kingdom and the mystery of Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, are not proclaimed. —POPE ST. PAUL VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi, n. 22; vatican.va

Instead of transforming society with the message of the Gospel, however, reducing one’s carbon footprint is seemingly the new mission. Being “tolerant” and “inclusive” has replaced authentic virtue and holiness. Turning off the lights, recycling, and using less plastic (as worthy as these are) have become the new sacraments. Waving rainbow flags has replaced the Banner of Christ.

What comes next? According to Newman, it is then when the State replaces the role of the Heavenly Father that even once Christian nations will find themselves (perhaps willingly) in the grip of Antichrist.

…when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth? (Luke 18:8)

It is no longer a stretch to see see Newman’s words as possibly on the verge of fulfillment in our generation.

IN what comes as no surprise, the Canadian “conservative” candidate in the upcoming federal election has announced his position on the fate of the unborn in our country:

My personal position has always been open and consistent. I am personally pro-life but I’ve also made the commitment that as leader of this party it is my responsibility to ensure that we do not re-open this debate, that we focus on issues that unite our party and unite Canadians…  that’s exactly what I’ll do and that’s why I’ll vote against measures that attempt to re-open this debate. —Andrew Scheer, leader of the Conservative Party, October 3rd, 2019; cbc.ca

Let me say upfront, this is not a political issue. It is one at the very heart of “faith and morals.” That is, the Church has something to say about this; the Church here must have something to say about it. However, even though we are less than three weeks from a crucial election in this country where freedom of speech and religion are increasingly under threat, there is a haunting vacuum of silence from the hierarchy (and those priests who do speak boldly on moral issues are often told to be silent). But it has been this way for decades now. Faithful Catholics have long understood that they are virtually on their own when it comes to an evangelical voice in the public sphere. And so, onward.

Mr. Scheer’s statement is deeply troubling. It’s schizophrenic. To say one is “pro-life” in this context means that one is against the intentional killing of an unborn child. How, then, can this be a “personal” thing? What if a politician said, “I am personally against stealing things from someone else’s property, but I will not impose this view on others.” Or, “I am personally against killing someone who is an inconvenience to you, but I will not enforce it.” Of course, we’d say that’s absurd and immoral. But when it comes to the killing of an unborn child behind closed doors, which in Canada, can happen right up until birth since there are no laws restricting abortion here… this is not open to debate? This is intellectually dishonest.

Not only that, but to even prevent simply the debate is undemocratic. It’s totalitarian. It’s exactly what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been doing for nearly four years. The current PM has gone so far as to bar anyone who is pro-life from his party. Worse, in what can only be described as Orwellian, he made government grants to organizations dependent upon them signing an agreement that they will support his liberal values, including the right to abortion—or no money. How this does not disturb any Canadian is beyond me. Indeed, the disconcerting vision of Justin Trudeau has been, and continues to be, to make whatever feelings Canadians have become “law.” Under Trudeau, we can redefine human nature. Under Trudeau, death is a solution to all our problems, whether it’s the inconvenience of an unexpected pregnancy, depression, sickness, or old age. But when men such as him are opposed with barely a whimper, is it surprising that Canada is mere steps away from formal totalitarianism? When the courts and “human rights tribunals” are ready to punish your thoughts, believe me, we’re just about there.

Yes, I would have preferred to have heard Scheer say, “I am personally pro-life and I have no intention to open the abortion debate—unless Canadians want to. I will not prevent Members of Parliament from introducing legislation to debate any issue. We totally reject the intolerance of the present government that not only rejects debate of issues important to Canadians but actually excludes them from the democratic process and even government funds if they do not hold ‘liberal values’. That kind of dictatorial line has no place in this country. Canada is “the true north strong and free” and as Prime Minister, I intend to make it that way again.”

But what am I thinking? We live in the most politically correct country in the world. Canadians are so “compassionate” and “tolerant” that we would apologize for stepping on the devil’s toes. In actuality, there is nothing compassionate about tearing a child from its mother’s womb when science tells us that the fetus has pain receptors as early as 11 weeks gestation. There is nothing compassionate about telling a frightened or unprepared mother that she’s removing a mere “blob of cells” when her very own instincts (and yes, science) tells us that it is a growing child within her. There is nothing noble in tolerating the genocide of a country that, were it not for immigration, is shrinking because it has contracepted and aborted its future.

According to Scheer’s own words, he intends to “ensure that we do not re-open this debate.” This is said at the same time that abortion clinics south of the border are closing as more and more Americans become aware of the gruesome practice. This is said at the same time that organizations like Planned Parenthood have engaged in live-birth harvesting of baby’s organs. This is said at the same time that medical technology is producing 3D images of unborn babies while streams of Canadian couples stand in long lines hoping to adopt an unwanted child.

No, the debate is not closed. Killing the vulnerable is never a closed debate. The gaping wound this produces in both men and women who have taken the life of their child is not closed. The demographic winter this has caused all over the world is not over. The impact this has had on our economy is not finished. The cultural deficit this has created by the slaughter of future scientists, educators, innovators, musicians, and saints is incalculable.

Sure, there are other issues in this country that are important. No one said they weren’t. But if moral absolutes such as the fundamental right to life are not protected, every other issue is now subject to the whims of those in power. Now, “truth” becomes whatever the “majority” says it is until another majority changes that. Indeed, assisted suicide in Canada is now equated with “health care” just as abortion is now considered a “woman’s right.” This is nothing short of…

…a 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

For our part as Catholic Christians (and I state it as such because being “Catholic” does not necessarily follow with the second), we must prepare ourselves for a martyrdom of sorts, be it “white” or even someday “red.” There is no human sign on the horizon that the state of things are about to change. One can no longer sit on the fence. You are going to be knocked off one way or another.

Those who challenge this new paganism are faced with a difficult option. Either they conform to this philosophy or they are faced with the prospect of martyrdom. —Servant of God Fr. John Hardon (1914-2000), How to Be a Loyal Catholic Today? By Being Loyal to the Bishop of Romewww.therealpresence.org

As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15)

The Church… intends to continue to raise her voice in defense of mankind, even when policies of States and the majority of public opinion moves in the opposite direction. Truth, indeed, draws strength from itself and not from the amount of consent it arouses.  —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Vatican, March 20, 2006

This is why Catholics genuflect when they come to church. They know that this is a holy place, and to be found on one’s knee is a very good posture in such precincts. It says, ceremonially, not verbally, ‘I am a creature and thou art my Creator. I am thy child and thou art my Father. I am a subject and thou art my Sovereign. And, alas, I am a sinner, and thou art holy.’ To kneel, only briefly, in this fashion is to order one’s body as well as one’s mind to what is true.

THE AGITATORS

 

THERE is a remarkable parallel under the reign of both Pope Francis and President Donald Trump. They are two completely different men in vastly different positions of power, yet with many fascinating similarities surrounding their incumbency. Both men are provoking strong reactions among their constituents and beyond. Here, I am not staking out any position but rather pointing out the parallels in order to draw a much broader and spiritual conclusion beyond State and Church politics.

• The election of both men was surrounded by controversy. According to alleged conspiracies, it has been suggested that Russia colluded in getting Donald Trump elected. Likewise, that the so-called “St. Gallen Mafia”, a small group of cardinals, conspired to raise Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio to the papacy.

• While no hard evidence has emerged to provide a solid case against either man, opponents of the Pope and the President continue to insist that they hold office illegitimately. In the case of the Pope, there is a movement to declare his papacy invalid, and thus, that he is an “anti-pope.” And with Trump, that he should be impeached and likewise removed from office as a “fraud.”

• Both men made immediate gestures of personal austerity upon their election. Francis dispensed with many papal traditions including the papal private quarters, opting to move into a communal building to live with ordinary staff at the Vatican. Trump dispensed with receiving a presidential salary and frequently arranges rallies to be with the common voter.

• Both leaders are considered “outsiders” of the establishment. Francis is a South American, born far from the Italian bureaucracy of the Church, and has vocalized his disdain for the clericalism within the Roman Curia that puts career before the Gospel. Trump is a businessman who remained out of politics most of his life, and has vocalized his disdain for career politicians who put their future ahead of the country. Francis was elected to “clean up” the Vatican while Trump was elected to “drain the swamp.”

• Coming in as “outsiders” and perhaps victims of their inexperience with the “establishment,” both men have surrounded themselves with advisors and associates who have been controversial and caused problems for their leadership and reputation.

• The unorthodox means by which both men have chosen to communicate opinion has stirred plenty of controversy. Pope Francis, sometimes unreservedly and without editing, has expressed tendentious opinions onboard papal flights. Trump, on the other hand—without reserve or seemingly much editing either—has taken to Twitter. Both men have at times used harsh language to characterize their colleagues.

• The media have served as the “official opposition” against either man with a general and nearly universal negative approach to either. In the Catholic world, “conservative” media have focused almost entirely on papal glitches, ambiguities, and flaws while almost ignoring wholesale his orthodox homilies and teachings. In Trump’s case, the “liberal” media have also been completely obsessed with a negative outlook while likewise ignoring any progress or success.

•  Not only the style but the content of their reigns have caused unforeseen division and rancor among those whom they serve. In a word, their tenures have served to destroy the status quo. As a result, the gulf between the so-called “conservative” and “liberal” or “right” and “left” has never been so wide; the dividing lines have never been so clear. Remarkably, within the same week, Pope Francis said he was not afraid of “schism” of those who oppose him, and Trump predicted a kind of “civil war” if he is impeached.

In other words, both men have served as agitators. 

 

WITHIN DIVINE PROVIDENCE

The daily rancour surrounding these men is almost unprecedented. The destabilization of the Church and America are not small—both of them having global influence and a discernible impact for the future that is arguably game-changing.

Nonetheless, I believe all of this lies within Divine Providence. That God has not been taken by surprise by the unorthodox ways of these men but that it has come to this by His design. Can we not say that the leadership of both men has knocked people off the fence into one direction or the other? That the interior thoughts and dispositions of many have been exposed, particularly those ideas that are not rooted in truth? Indeed, positions founded on the Gospel are crystallizing at the same time that anti-gospel tenets are hardening.

The world is rapidly being divided into two camps, the comradeship of anti-Christ and the brotherhood of Christ. The lines between these two are being drawn. How long the battle will be we know not; whether swords will have to be unsheathed we know not; whether blood will have to be shed we know not; whether it will be an armed conflict we know not. But in a conflict between truth and darkness, truth cannot lose. —Bishop Fulton John Sheen, D.D. (1895-1979); source unknown (possibly “The Catholic Hour”)

Was this not also predicted by Pope John Paul II while he was still a cardinal back in 1976?

We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through… We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel, of Christ and the anti-christ. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up… 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), from a 1976 speech to the American Bishops in Philadelphia at the Eucharistic Conference

He later when on to compare this polarization of society to the battle taking place in the Book of Revelation between the “woman clothed in the sun” and the “dragon”:

This struggle parallels the apocalyptic combat described in [Rev 11:19-12:1-6]. Death battles against Life: a “culture of death” seeks to impose itself on our desire to live, and live to the full… Vast sectors of society are confused about what is right and what is wrong, and are at the mercy of those with the power to “create” opinion and impose it on others. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Cherry Creek State Park Homily, Denver, Colorado, 1993

According to the late Saint, we are living in a decidedly Marian hour. If that is the case, another prophecy takes on a certain significance:

Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted (and you yourself a sword will pierce) so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” (Luke 2:34-35)

All around the world, images of Our Lady have been inexplicably weeping oil or blood. In apparitions, several seers report that she is frequently weeping over the state of the world. It’s as if our generation has pierced Our Lady all over again as we crucify belief in God. As such, the thoughts of many hearts are being revealed. Just as dawn is preceded by light on the horizon, I believe The Agitators are serving to facilitate that “first light” before a coming “illumination of conscience” or “warning” comes to all of humanity, as described in St. John’s “sixth seal” (see The Great Day of Light).

 

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

We ought to take a certain comfort in knowing that what is happening has been foretold. It reminds us that God is very much in charge and very near to us, always.

I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place, you may believe. (John 14:29)

But it should also be a sobering reminder that the relative calm of this past generation is coming to an end. Our Lady has been appearing not only to call us back to her Son but to warn us to prepare.” On this memorial of St. Jerome, his words are a timely wake-up call.

Nothing is more to be feared than too long a peace. You are deceived if you think that a Christian can live without persecution. He suffers the greatest persecution of all who lives under none. A storm puts a man on his guard and obliges him to exert his utmost efforts to avoid shipwreck. 

There is no guarantee that America will remain as a superpower. Likewise, there is no guarantee that the Church will remain a dominant influence. In fact, as I wrote in The Fall of Mystery BabylonI believe the United States (and entire West) has a dramatic humbling and purification coming. Oh, how the Scriptures this past Sunday on the rich man and Lazarus collectively speak to the Western World! And as several prophets in Scripture have attested, the Church will also be reduced to a “remnant.” The signs of the times indicate this is well underway.

The Agitators, I believe, are playing a crucial role in faciliating this purification and even exposing what lies in individual hearts. Do we as Christians have faith when we no longer have sight? Are we still charitable toward those who aren’t? Do we trust in Christ’s promises to the Church or are we taking matters into our own hands? Have we elevated politicians and even popes in a way that is almost idolatrous?

At the end of this “final confrontation,” whatever is built on sand will crumble. The Agitators have already begun The Great Shaking

Many forces have tried, and still do, to destroy the Church, from without as well as within, but they themselves are destroyed and the Church remains alive and fruitful… She remains inexplicably solid… kingdoms, peoples, cultures, nations, ideologies, powers have passed, but the Church, founded on Christ, notwithstanding the many storms and our many sins, remains ever faithful to the deposit of faith shown in service; for the Church does not belong to popes, bishops, priests, nor the lay faithful; the Church in every moment belongs solely to Christ. —POPE FRANCIS, Homily, June 29th, 2015 www.americamagazine.org

THE UNFURLING REVOLUTION

 

THERE is a queasy feeling in my soul. For fifteen years, I have written about a coming Global Revolution, of When Communism Returns and the encroaching Hour of Lawlessness that is being fomented by the subtle but powerful censorship through Political CorrectnessI have shared both interior words I have received in prayer as well as, far more importantly, the words of the pontiffs and Our Lady that sometimes span centuries. They warn of a coming revolution that would seek to overthrow the entire present order:

No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself …that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view—namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism. —POPE LEO XIII, Humanum Genus, Encyclical on Freemasonry, n.10, Apri 20thl, 1884

Even though I’ve written of these things for many years, I am nonetheless disturbed as I watch souls blindly fall into deception. For all of a sudden, the pieces are rapidly coming together in a sobering picture. We are, it seems, on the very cusp of a radical destabilization of the entire world, including the Church—an upheaval the likes of which mankind has never known. Indeed, the motto of that secret society of Freemasons driving much of what we see today is Ordo ab chaos: “Order out of chaos.” Sometimes, we can only understand prophecy in hindsight once events have happened. I believe such is the case now as we glimpse what is behind the present global revolution…

 

GLOBAL WARMING: SAVING THE PLANET?

The Antichrist will fool many people because he will be viewed as a humanitarian with a fascinating personality, who espouses vegetarianism, pacifism, human rights and environmentalism.  —Cardinal Biffi, London Times, Friday, March 10, 2000, referring to a portrait of the Antichrist in Vladimir Soloviev’s book, War, Progress and the End of History 

There is no question that mankind is harming the planet. In The Great PoisoningI went into vast detail regarding the literal poisoning of the earth and all its inhabitants. But here’s the terrible irony in all of this: it’s not the cocktails of pharmaceutical drugs, the coatings on our cookware, the poisons we spray on our crops, the aerosols we release in the atmosphere, the chemicals in our food, vaccines, makeup, water or a hundred other things we ingest or breath daily that is the problem—these have been deemed “safe” by our government panels. No, the real demon is “global warming.” The claim has been made that mankind is, in fact, “poisoning” the planet with CO2 and that we only have about 12 years to gobefore the world ends (never mind that such apocalyptic scenarios have failed dozens and dozens of times). But carbon dioxide is not only not a pollutant, it’s necessary for plant life—it’s plant food. The higher the levels of CO2, the more the planet thrives. It is a historical fact that when the planet has cooled, growing periods were reduced, food supplies worsened, diseases increased and nations were thrown into instability (and the correlation between CO2 and warming, or lack thereof, has never been substantiated either, given other more crucial factors such as solar energy, ocean currents, etc.). As climate change scientist and researcher Tomas Sheahen explains:

It is a major mistake to conflate climate change with pollution. They’re two entirely different matters. We do not know how to control the climate, but we do know how to control pollution. —October 12th, 2016; LifeSiteNews.com

Yet, we have been told that there is a “scientific consensus” that the planet is warming due to anthropogenic (man-made) causes. The problem, however, is not only that several experts in the field of climatology refute this so-called consensus, but they are being excluded by the mainstream media and even the Vatican Pontifical Academy of Sciences from presenting their scientific knowledge. Such censorship is the very antithesis of science; to question facts and hypotheses is the very nature and foundation of scientific inquiry. The present climate is, in fact, anti-science, which actually exposes a spiritual dimension. As St. Paul said:

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3:17)

The same spirit that is shutting down debate regarding the true nature of marriage, the unborn, gender, etc. is the same lying spirit at work now. For as I have detailed in several articles (see Related Reading below), the “science” being fed to schoolchildren and the public via the mainstream media has been found to be manipulated and mangled by errant computer models, deleted data sets, or outright falsification of the facts (ie. “Climategate”). It would be laughable were it not for the grave consequences this has for the future, as I will explain in a moment. It is absolutely stunning that hundreds if not thousands of serious and credible voices in the field of climate science are not only being ignored but silenced. Here are but a few:

• Dr. Mototaka Nakamura is a renowned computer climate modeller. In June 2019, he published “Confessions of a climate scientist: the global warming hypothesis is an unproven hypothesis.” In it, he explains how computer models (the very ones being used right now as a basis for predicting global warming) are terribly inaccurate at making predictions for a number of reasons, and cannot be considered reliable. Remarkably, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that is driving the “global warming” agenda stated in their third report:

In climate research and modelling, we should recognize that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible. (Chapter 14, Section 14.2.2.2. )]

• Dr. Patrick Michaels, former Virginia State Climatologist, stated:

It is nowhere near as warm as it’s ‘supposed’ to be. The computer models are making systematic, dramatic errors. —broadcast with host Mark Levine

• In 2000, NASA published the work of Serbian astrophysicist Milutin Milankovitch (but has since “archived” it) and what has become known as the “Milankovitch cycles.” He is best known, NASA notes, “for developing one of the most significant theoriesrelating Earth motions and long-term climate change.” The shape of the Earth’s orbit changes from being elliptical (high eccentricity) to being nearly circular (low eccentricity) in a cycle that takes between 90,000 and 100,000 years. His theories were later proven to be true:

…in 1976, a study published in the journal Science examined deep-sea sediment cores and found that Milankovitch’s theory did in fact correspond to periods of climate change… Since this study, the National Research Council of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences has embraced the Milankovitch Cycle model. —NASA, March 24th, 2000; earthobservatory.nasa.gov 

• Dr. Fred Singer is an expert in remote sensing measurements, having served as founding director of the U.S. Weather Satellite Service, vice-chair of the U.S. National Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmosphere, deputy assistant administrator for policy at the EPA, and as a reviewer for several of the IPCC reports. He firmly refutes the connection Al Gore and his disciples have asserted that fossil fuel activity is going to cause coastlines to flood:

Let’s understand that the world’s mean temperatures have been rising at a pretty constant rate of about one degree Fahrenheit (0.6oC) over the past 100 years, and are likely to continue, although with both warmer and cooler fluctuations, for many hundreds of years into the future. Over each of the past several centuries, including the last one, sea levels rose by about 7 inches (18 cm). Accordingly, neither the overall warming trend or sea level rise began with the fossil-burning Industrial Revolution… nor have they changed in any detectable way due to human influences. And we can’t even really know that the second follows the first. Sea levels rose during the Little Ice Age from about 1400-1859 AD… a period which was considerably colder than now. —September 24th, 2013, Forbes.com

• Dr. James P. Wallace III, Dr. John R. Christy, and Dr. Joseph S. D’Aleo’s peer-reviewed study revealed that when accounting for El Ninos and La Ninas, which are “the fluctuations in temperature between the ocean and atmosphere in the east-central Equatorial Pacific” that “occur on average every two to seven years,” there has been a flat-line temperature trend since 1997. No warming. Indeed, as the U.S. Chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology noted in The Washington Times, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is deliberately leaving out crucial satellite data from its climate projections.

Atmospheric satellite data, considered by many to be the most objective, has clearly showed no warming for the past two decades. This fact is well documented, but has been embarrassing for an administration determined to push through costly environmental regulations. —Lamar Smith,The Washington Times, Nov. 26th, 2015

 

GLOBAL WARMING: CATALYST OF REVOLUTION

There is something far more insidious than merely quashing scientific data and debate. The fact is that “global warming” (whether man-made or not) is being used to spark a revolution to overturn the present order, particularly the economic order. In a word, it is being used to deconstruct the free market system and impose socialistic principles of wealth redistribution, ie. Communism… not to mention, an excuse to reduce the population of the planet.

In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself. —Alexander King & Bertrand Schneider (on the agenda of The Club of Rome), The First Global Revolution, p. 75, 1993

It’s worth noting that, if the political Left has an agenda, so does the political Right. The hegemony of major oil companies, backed by neo-conservatives, has been preserved at an unspeakable cost—from global wars to the prevention of new technologies that would provide low-cost or even free energy to the world. To be certain, the present system is corrupt; the present structure of a grossly inflated cost of living is enslaving and suppressing billions.[1] That said, the proposed wholesale elimination of fossil fuels at this time would have drastic consequences on the poor. A surprising critic of anthropogenic global warming is Dr. Peter Moore, co-founder of the environmental group Greenpeace.

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. —Fox Business News with Stewart Varney, January 2011;Forbes.com

But Dr. Moore really nails the most insidious aspect of this climate revolution:

the Left sees climate change as a perfect means to redistribute wealth from industrial countries to the developing world and the UN bureaucracy. —Dr. Peter Moore, P.h.d., co-founder of Greenpeace; “Why I am a Climate Change Skeptic”, March 20th, 2015; new.hearttland.org

There you have it. This is where suddenly all the pieces of the puzzle start coming together… the warnings of the Popes against Freemasonry and socialism… the warnings of Our Lady about the spread of Russia’s errors (Marxism, etc.)… the warnings in the Book of Revelation of a “beast” that rises to impose an economic system on all through which alone they can “buy and sell”… These are warnings against the spread of Global Communism. And for those who forget, Communism is the political ideology that the State, not free enterprise, is the one to redistribute the wealth and make everyone “equal.” This ultimately leads to the confiscation of private property and goods and the elimination of anyone who stands in the way.

Communism, then, is coming back again on the Western world, because something died in the Western world—namely, the strong faith of men in the God that made them. —Servant of God Archbishop Fulton Sheen, “Communism in America”, cf. youtube.com

But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what those behind the global warming movement have said in stunning admissions to their motives:

…one has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy.  Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth… —Ottmar Edenhofer on the UN’s IPCC, dailysignal.com, November 19th, 2011

Chief Climate Change official of the United Nations, Christine Figueres, stated:

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. —November 30th, 2015; unric.org

The United Nations Climate Change website reads:

The Paris Agreement requires all Parties to put forward their best efforts through “nationally determined contributions”… —unfccc.int

And again:

The impacts of climate change are increasingly hard to ignore. We require deep transformations of our economies and societies. —Patricia Espinosa, current UNFCCC Executive Secretary, December 3rd, 2018

It is noteworthy to point out that the radical socialist arm of the Democratic Party in the United States, headed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has also revealed their ulterior motives. Her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, said earlier this year in a meeting with Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee:

The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all. Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing. 

To which Rickett’s replied:

I think it’s… dual. It is both rising to the challenge that is existential around climate and it is building an economy that contains more prosperity. More sustainability in that prosperity — and more broadly shared prosperity, equitability and justice throughout. —July 10th, 2019,washingtonpost.com (my emphasis)

This is Communism without the jackboots, at least for now. It goes under many titles such as you just read, not the least the code words used by the United Nations: “sustainable development.” Greta Thunberg, the young climate activist who grabbed the headlines this past week with her fiery speech, has become the poster child for the UN and the growing army of revolutionaries striking from their classrooms. She is also the face of children increasingly terrorized (and used) by the propagandists who claim a “climate emergency” or “climate disaster” is at hand. On the one hand, she makes a valid point from her carefully prepared script that there is a wrong-headed focus on profit-over-people by those in power.

…all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you! —September 23rd, 2019; Yahoo.com

Unfortunately, Greta has bought the ideological solutions being promoted by the United Nations, solutions that continue to get more radical by the day (such as banning cattle herds or even punishing anyone who eats meat with the crime of “ecocide“). She does not realize that what she is demanding will ultimately result in the enslavement of her generation. How I would have preferred to hear Greta say:

How dare you alter the climate statistics and manipulate the data in order to impose a carbon tax on the poor! How dare you try to slide Climategate past my generation and use “global warming” to impose a socialist agenda! How dare you threaten my generation with apocalyptic scenarios to scare them, make them anxious, and brainwash them into accepting the reordering of the economy into a communist system. How dare you!!

 

PAPAL BLESSING

Which is why all of this becomes so very painful when we hear Pope Francis not only embracing without reserve the controversial science surrounding man-made global warming but throwing his papal blessing behind the United Nations—an organization that has been historically hostile to the moral tenets of the Gospel and which has actively engaged in the theories of population reduction. In his Message for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, Francis declares:

Now is the time to abandon our dependence on fossil fuels and move, quickly and decisively, towards forms of clean energy and a sustainable and circular economy. —September 1st, 2019; vatican.va

Again, we should all be in favour of ceasing the poisoning of the planet and terrible damage occurring to the oceans, our soil and our air. In the words of Monsignor Charles Pope:

Concern for the environment is part of the wise stewardship expected of Christians. [However,] There must be no compromising of our Catholic values to join in what has become an increasingly godless, anti-life and anti-human movement. —September 25th, 2019, ncregister.com

Indeed, what is being proposed will actually do more harm to the poor whom, ironically, the Pope (and Christ) repeatedly asks us to care for. James Taylor, Director of the Arthur B. Robinson Center on Climate and Environmental Policy at the Heartland Institute, a conservative research and education organization, notes that there is…

…“nothing clean” about the “environmentally devastating mining of rare-earth minerals necessary for wind and solar power equipment” and observed that the deaths of millions of birds and bats can be blamed on wind turbines. He also suggested that hundreds of square miles have been destroyed to make room for enough wind turbines to produce the same amount of energy as a single power plant. —September 3rd, 2019; LifeSiteNews.com

There are other technologies that are not as harmful as any of the above that could create, in fact, free energy for the entire world. But the point here is not to debate the merits of this or that technology. Rather, it is to point out the anti-human movement that lies behind the climate change religion, which ultimately seeks to reduce the population of the world and impose Communism. To that end, it is an instrument of the “beast” of Revelation. Catholic seer, Luz de Maria, has the approval from her bishop of her messages to the world from Our Lady. It’s worth noting these particular warnings:

Communism has not left Humanity, but has disguised itself in order to continue against My People. —April 27, 2018

Communism has not waned, it resurfaces in the midst of this great confusion on Earth and great spiritual distress. —April 20, 2018

And in March of the same year, Our Lady said:

Communism is not diminishing but expands and takes power, do not be confused when you are told otherwise. The world economy will be that of the antichrist, health will be subject to adherence to the antichrist, everyone will be free if they surrender to the antichrist, food will be given to them if they surrender to the antichrist… THIS IS THE FREEDOM TO WHICH THIS GENERATION IS SURRENDERING: SUBJECTION TO THE ANTICHRIST. —Luz de Maria, March 2, 2018

To that end, I have personally never felt so torn between the direction I see the Vatican going and my conscience. Of course, Christ and Sacred Tradition win every time. Catholics all over the world have written me expressing their reserve as well. So here is a saving grace in all of this. It is actually to stand with the Pope’s own words on this matter. In his Encyclical Letter on the environment, there was inserted a balancing word:

There are certain environmental issues where it is not easy to achieve a broad consensus. Here I would state once more that the Church does not presume to settle scientific questions or to replace politics. But I am concerned to encourage an honest and open debate so that particular interests or ideologies will not prejudice the common good. —Laudato si’n. 188

And so, taking the Pope’s advice, I respectfully and urgently disagree with the Vatican’s opinion on this since it does not lie within the Church’s mandate, and hope to indeed “encourage an honest and open debate” so as to prevent “particular interests or ideologies” contrary to the Gospel from hurting “the common good.”

 

VIEW FROM THE WATCHMAN’S WALL

All that said… I believe there is a certain inevitability to what is happening, that everything is going according to plan. By this, I am not suggesting a certain fatalismwhereby we cannot impact the future. Rather, what is happening is really the inevitable stages of that “final confrontation” that St. Pope John Paul II said is now upon us:

We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel, of Christ and the anti-Christ. —Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (JOHN PAUL II), from a 1976 speech to the American Bishops in Philadelphia, Eucharistic Conference

Or what the Catechism describes:

Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers.Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 675

Ultimately, the trial lies in a choice we will all have to make: to follow Christ or the spirit of antichrist, who is that dragon, Satan, who demands we fall in line with the rest of the world. Remarkably, St. John speaks of a time when people willingly and blindly go along (“worship”) with the diabolical, which perfectly describes our generation:

Men worshiped the dragon, for [the dragon] had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?” (Revelation 13:4)

Yes, who can fight against the political correctness that has the backing of liberal courts? Who can fight against an environmental movement financed by world bankers and elites and endorsed by the Pope? Who can fight against those who, empowered by the establishment, seek to destroy freedom of religion? Just this week, American politician and former presidential candidate, John Kerry, declared “World War Zero” on anyone who would dare deny man-made global warming, ‘even calling those who oppose their climate agenda “the axis”—a term used to describe Nazi Germany and Japan during World War II.’ [2] His website is even “enlisting” recruits to the cause:

World War Zero will unite unlikely allies and bring together powerful influencers and you to win the future we all deserve, and triumph over today’s axis of opposition: delay, denial, and distortion.worldwarzero.com

He got it right with “distortion.” The fact is that this Final Confrontation, as John Paul II noted, “lies within the plans of divine providence.” Like the Son, the Father will permit the Church to also “suffer, die, and rise again.” Let us be prepared: the Beast, for a short time, will prevail:

…it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them… it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name… Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. (Rev 13:7, 16, 10)

We cannot thwart the Final Confrontation of our era. What we can do, however, is prepare ourselves and our families and do whatever we can to bring others to Jesus Christ. Time is short… we all feel it. We ought to pay attention to that. The Revolution has come… but what follows will be a glorious Era of Peace in which this present darkness, with its lies and hypocrisy, will become but a faded memory.
