OUR LADY’S WARTIME

Posted on  by Mark

ON THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF LOURDES

THERE are two ways to approach the times now unfolding: as victims or protagonists, as bystanders or leaders. We have to choose. Because there is no more middle ground. There is no more place for the lukewarm. There is no more waffling on the project of our holiness or of our witness. Either we are all in for Christ — or we will be taken in by the spirit of the world.

A TIME TO WEEP

Is it not true that, already, vast portions of humanity have been drawn into at least the first stages of The Strong Delusion that St. Paul spoke of? Brainwashed by a politically correct culture, lulled into a false sense of security by a mostly silent clergy, and breathlessly corralled into a system that is daily purging the truth, rewriting history, and evacuating freedom of speech, religion, thought and movement by the hour. And yet, who is resisting? Who is sounding the alarm? Who are the shepherds rising to defend their flocks, the Sacraments and the freedom to not only worship Christ in the public square but to proclaim His Gospel to the nations?

My Lord and my God… I saw all this so clearly about eight years ago as I drove to meet a priest for the Sacrament of Confession. Suddenly, I saw in my heart how everything would be “lost” and driven into the silence of the tomb. When I got back home, I wrote it down:[1]

Weep, O children of men! Weep for all that is good, and true, and beautiful. Weep for all that must go down to the tomb, your icons and chants, your walls and steeples.

Weep, O children of men! For all that is good, and true, and beautiful. Weep for all that must go down to the Sepulcher, your teachings and truths, your salt and your light.

Weep, O children of men! For all that is good, and true, and beautiful. Weep for all who must enter the night, your priests and bishops, your popes and princes.

Weep, O children of men! For all that is good, and true, and beautiful. Weep for all who must enter the trial, the test of faith, the refiner’s fire.

…but weep not forever!

For dawn will come, light will conquer, a new Sun will rise.

And all that was good, and true, and beautiful

Will breathe new breath, and be given to sons again.

Now we see how the axiom that “history repeats itself” is so true. We have looked back upon previous generations with a kind of detached condemnation: how could the Germans have voted Hitler to power? How did the Russians allow Stalin and Lenin to unfurl their Marxist project? How did Frenchmen permit the revolution that crumbled statues, whitewashed icons, and unleashed a river of blood into their cobblestone streets? 

I have come to understand the average German living under Nazism and the average Russian living under communism for another reason: the power of the media to brainwash. As a student of totalitarianism since my graduate studies at the Russian Institute of Columbia University’s School of International Affairs (as it was then known), I have always believed that only in a dictatorship could a society be brainwashed. I was wrong. I now understand that mass brainwashing can take place in a nominally free society… That’s why I no longer judge the average German as easily as I used to. Apathy in the face of tyranny turns out not to be a German or Russian characteristic. I just never thought it could happen in America. —Dennis Prager, columist, “I Now Better Understand the ‘Good German’”, January 8th, 2021, theepochtimes.com

And yet, many who describe themselves as Christians are mostly oblivious, or indeed, simply apathetic. Just as most of Jerusalem was celebrating the feast of Passover while Jesus wept in Gethsemane, so too, many are also unaware that Judas and his mob are at the very gates of Our Gethsemane

Beloved children, pray for the Church, because now the struggle is at the gates, she [the Church] will live her Passion. —Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, February 3rd, 2021; cf. countdowntothekingdom.com

Those who are awake, who are watching and praying are so few that it must startle even the angels as they recount the words of their Lord:

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

A TIME FOR WAR

While it may seem that we are helpless in the face of this totalitarianism, we are not. Our Lady has already promised that she will Triumph, meaning that her Son’s victory on the Cross is going to crush the head of the serpent. But not without a battle, not without this “final confrontation” between the Woman and the dragon (Rev 12). Our Lady, The New Gideon, is telling her Rabble exactly what to do: be proactive agents of “chaos” against the forces of darkness. 

Now is the time of the true battle, and with the weapons of fasting and the Holy Rosary in your hands, fight together with me for the Triumph of My Immaculate Heart. Beloved children, the times that will come will be terrible, but do not fear, because I and my Son will be close to you in the tribulation. Jesus will make the Holy Spirit descend upon you, just as He did with his apostles. —Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, November 14th, 2020; cf. countdowntothekingdom.com

Dear children, you are heading towards the future of a Great Battle between Good and evil. The enemies will increasingly act to keep you from the truth. In this Great Battle, your weapon of defense is love for the truth. In your hands, the Holy Rosary and Sacred Scripture; in your hearts, the love of truth. Do not allow the devil to win. You are the Lord’s Possession. —Our Lady to Pedro Regis, October 27th, 2020; cf. countdowntothekingdom.com

Fight, dearest children, my apostles in these last times of yours. This is the hour of my battle. This is the hour of my great victory. With you in the combat are also the Angels of the Lord who, at my orders, are carrying out the task which I have entrusted to them. Our Lady to a Californian Soul, February 8th, 2021; cf. countdowntothekingdom.com

My children, true faith is not something that is lost: it is like a fire — it can have a dull flame that flickers or it can be a burning fire: this depends on you. In order to be a burning fire, faith must be nourished with prayer, love, Eucharistic adoration. My children, I come to gather my army, ready with true faith and weapon in hand, ready to fight with love. My children, I have been leaving you my messages for some time now, but alas, you often do not listen, you harden your hearts. —Our Lady to Simona, February 8th, 2021; cf. countdowntothekingdom.com

Fasting, prayer, the Rosary, Eucharistic adoration, An Invincible Faith in Jesusand love for the truth, which is the Sword of the Spirit[2] — these are our weapons. They have the power to shake principalities, disrupt princes, exorcise evil, reunite families, stop wars, mitigate chastisements, and draw down mercy to save souls. Hence, even you, dear retired grandparents, are called to the front lines of Our Lady’s army (cf. You Be Noah). 

FIX YOUR EYES ON HEAVEN

There is much talk these days of “the Warning”, “refuges” and the coming “Era of Peace.” Yes, these are all aspects of both Our Lady’s Triumph and maternal intercession that find their support in Sacred Scripture and Tradition. But here’s a secret. Set your desire not upon those things but upon Heaven. Long for Heaven. Long to see the face of Jesus, to feel the arms of Mary, to know the love of billions of brothers and sisters who, even now, surround you as a “cloud of witnesses.”[3] The only way to persevere through these coming days is to detach from this world, from the nagging voice of self-preservation, and abandon everything to Jesus. This is wartime. Heaven’s air sirens are sounding. It is the call for the entire Church to martyrdom — whether it be “white” or “red.”

The only Catholic families that will remain alive and thriving in the twenty-first century are the families of martyrs. —Servant of God, Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J., The Blessed Virgin and the Sanctification of the Family

In other words, those families that refuse to bow down to the gods of Political Correctness, of Fear, and False Peace and Security; the families who will cry out to the little dictators of our times that “Jesus is Essential!”; the families who will defend the truth in season and out. Yes, this will “offend” many. But then, you will be more like your Master than ever:

They took offense at him… He was amazed at their lack of faith. (Matt 6:3, 6)

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

Does this make you afraid? The saints of yesterday longed for these days so that they could prove their love, defend their Lord, and earn a glory in eternity that would only increase into infinity. This is what I mean by setting your eyes upon the horizon of Heaven. This world, even should you live in the Era of Peace, is still but a blink compared to eternity.

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

Yes, this is the hour most especially for our priests and bishops to renew their “fiat” to Our Lord, their vows to lay down their life for their sheep. This is no longer a mere analogy. Soon, very soon, priests are going to face whether or not to bar their churches or face fines and even imprisonment in the face of indefinite lockdowns, or other mandatory state restrictions.

Remember the word I spoke to you, ‘No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. (John 15:20)

This is why Our Lady has been begging us to pray for our shepherds, because they are also key to her Triumph.[4]

And yet, Our Lord is also going to preserve many Christian families and priests for the last and final Era of Peace, a new dawn that will scatter this darkness, chain the enemy, and fill to the ends of the earth the Triumph of the Gospel. Hence, this is also the time for Our Lady’s Little Rabble to begin entering fully into the Divine Will, to prepare your hearts for the coming descent of the Kingdom of Christ that we have been invoking for 2000 years in the “Our Father.”[5] Who shall see that Era, who will go on to Heaven? We don’t know, and neither should it concern us—only to do the Will of God.

For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. (Romans 14:8)

THE LAST STRETCH

In closing, I am obligated to make my annual appeal to readers to help this full-time apostolate while there is still time. We are watching daily as the voices of truth are being silenced. It seems as if we are on the last stretch of being able to communicate so freely. Still, it is one day at a time. And today, like you, I have bills to pay, staff to fund, expenses to manage. As I look over to the right hand column, I see that the number of posts has exceeded 1600! How did that happen?! Yet, instead of putting these writings into books to sell, I have wanted from the beginning to make these words and our videos, etc. as freely available as possible. As Jesus said, “Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.” [6] And yet, says St. Paul:

In the same way, the Lord ordered that those who preach the gospel should live by the gospel. (1 Corinthians 9:14)

I have received countless letters from many of you deeply grateful for the videos my colleague Prof. Daniel O’Connor and I have been doing. Thank you for that encouragement — we’re trying our best. Moreover, I hope to start some kind of a regular podcast soon, to share more frequently the “little now words” that are on my heart. It’s a matter of time as I have been pretty overwhelmed this past year. So, I am trying to approach this carefully and prudently, though I do have my spiritual director and wife’s blessing for this. So thank you, to those who are able to, for clicking that little red donation button below. But I am most grateful for the currency of your prayers, without which I am certain I would not be able to continue. 

I have to say that the letters we are receiving from around the world on how the content on Countdown to the Kingdom, or here on The Now Word, is leading people into deep conversion, are astounding. Thanks be to God! It is a blessing to have tasted some of the fruits of the Holy Spirit’s work in your lives.

Finally, I occasionally post writings on Countdown to the Kingdom that are relevant to the content there. I recently posted two writings on the questions surrounding Fatima and Sr. Lucia:

Did the Consecration of Russia Happen?

Did the “period of peace” already happen?

Thanks for your love and support and patience with me. You are always in my heart and prayers. Your brother in Jesus,

Mark

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

THE TIME OF FATIMA IS HERE

Posted on  by Mark

POPE BENEDICT XVI said in 2010 that “We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete.”[1] Now, Heaven’s recent messages to the world say that the fulfillment of Fatima’s warnings and promises have now arrived. In this new webcast, Prof. Daniel O’Connor and Mark Mallett break down recent messages and leave the viewer with several nuggets of practical wisdom and direction…

A LETTER TO MY AMERICAN FRIENDS…

Posted on  by Mark

BEFORE I write anything else, there was enough feedback from the last two webcasts that Daniel O’Connor and I recorded that I think it’s important to pause and recalibrate.

I realize that many of my American readers are raw right now. You have endured four years of political turmoil that literally occupied front page headlines every day with barely a reprieve. The division, anger, and bitterness in your beautiful land has affected nearly every family there and even abroad. This past election has been a watershed moment for your country with implications for the entire world.[1] For my part, I have avoided the politics in my writings, though I was closely following everything that took place more than you realize. Like you, I could sense that the spiritual consequences were enormous…

So Prof. Daniel O’Connor and I knew we were stepping into a minefield by broaching American politics in our webcast On Secular Messianism. But we were both seeing something terribly unhealthy in the letters we were receiving on a daily basis in the weeks leading up to the Inauguration. People were losing focus, getting caught up in literal conspiracies, losing their peace, losing their hope, even losing their faith. In the meantime, the Lord was saying nothing different in the “now word.” Our Lady was saying nothing different in Heaven’s messages on Countdown to the KingdomThe message was the same the past four years as the past four decades: the world is entering the final stages of the message of Fatima when the errors of Russia will spread (ie. Communism) to the ends of the earth “annihilating nations” in more ways than one. If anything, America seems about to fulfill an ancient prophecy in the Book of Revelation, explained in Mystery Babylon and The Coming Collapse of America.

Yet, Daniel and I also knew that that many of you were heartbroken. President Trump became one of the most outspoken presidents for ending abortion (his defence of the unborn during his debate with Hilary Clinton was one of the most courageous moments of any politician on this issue). He defended freedom of religion. He gave many profound speeches that acknowledged Jesus Christ by name that left me cheering. 

And like many of you, I watched in disgust as the mainstream media dispensed with even attempting to appear objective and, with one collective voice, became a propaganda machine the likes of which the Western World has never seen on their own soil. In the final days leading up to the Inauguration, the surreal scene of troops around Washington D.C. (who are still there), the brutal and unjust “cancelling” of websites and entire platforms, the censoring of views that contradicted the narrative on everything from election fraud, to vaccines, to the facts surrounding the Capitol riot… all of this suddenly awakened many of you that all this is real; that there truly is a global revolution taking place, and that it’s now on full display on American soil. 

Nonetheless, Daniel and I wanted to rise above the politics to draw those of you who were losing your peace back to the reality that it is not flesh and blood, not kings nor princes, but Our Lord alone who can fix this world. That’s just where the world is at, unlike the crises of previous generations. As Jesus said to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta:

My daughter, governments feel the ground missing under their feet. I will use all means to make them surrender, to make them come back to their senses, and to make them know that only from Me can they hope for true peace — and lasting peace… My daughter, the way things are now, only my omnipotent finger can fix them. —October 14, 1918

Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy. —Jesus to St. Faustina, Divine Mercy in My Soul, Diary, n. 300

Yes, fourteen years ago, I wrote that only a Cosmic Surgery can save us from this rebellion. In that writing, I quoted St. Pio, who said:

If God turns nations’ poisonous joys into bitterness, if He corrupts their pleasures, and if He scatters thorns along the path of their riot, the reason is that He loves them still. And this is the holy cruelty of the Physician, who, in extreme cases of sickness, makes us take most bitter and most horrible medicines. The greatest mercy of God is not to let those nations remain in peace with each other who are not at peace with Him. —St. Pio of Pietrelcina, My Daily Catholic Bible, p. 1482

We were so careful to say in the beginning of our webcast that the Church has entered Gethsemane, including its temptations. Among them was the temptation of Peter to withdraw the sword to depose the mob. But Jesus ordered him to put it back. The reason is that the Passion was necessary for a greater plan… so too, now, the Passion of the Church is necessary for a greater and more beautiful glory that is coming. And for this reason, we need to pay attention to what Heaven is saying. We need to recognize the bigger picture and rise above the politics insofar as we only engage the politics with the weapons of the Gospel.

It is a part of the Church’s mission “to pass moral judgments even in matters related to politics, whenever the fundamental rights of man or the salvation of souls requires it. The means, the only means, she may use are those which are in accord with the Gospel and the welfare of all men according to the diversity of times and circumstances.” —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2246

It will not surprise you, then, that we received letters that were as polarized as the country itself. Many said the video was “profound” and that they recognized within themselves an unhealthy attachment and that, yes, they had indeed fallen into a kind of “secular messianism” whereby they were banking on Donald Trump to turn the world around and destroy the “deep state.” They said they were now back on board with Our Lord’s plan, and that the webcast helped them to find peace again. “I got it!” exclaimed one reader, “Make God great again!”

But others were very angry, “appalled” that we would “attack” Donald Trump. Some said Daniel was “unpatriotic” and that I was just brainwashed by the mainstream media. Now, we both understood this anger, the raw emotions. We aren’t holding it against them. But in our second video on The Politics of Deathwe answered why the position we held was the one that all of us as Catholics need to hold: and that is the standard of the Gospel. 

So yes, while I totally praise and support the many good things I said above of Trump, I did make a point in our first webcast of highlighting the source of much of the division, and that was his tongue. Many very faithful American Catholics who were Trump supporters told me that this was a point of scandal for them and their children too; troubled that he would tweet out personal insults calling people “stupid, clown, dopey, unattractive, losers, low class slob, etc.” The reason I pointed this out in the webcast is because the unhealthy element of secular messianism prevalent among many Evangelical Christians in America led to many ignoring such divisive words and only doubling-down on their claim that Trump is “God’s chosen one.” As such, Christianity was being identified more and more as being tolerant of trash-talk with Trump increasingly becoming the face of the Christian right. This compromise, in part, has come with a cost: Christians and “the right” are now being lumped together in the “purge” of the Biden-Harris administration that is rapidly beginning to “cancel” Christianity on social media. (And let it be said that I am outraged at several news stories that have painted the 75 million Americans who voted for Trump as “Nazis” and “extremists.” For all the cringeworthy words Trump directed at individuals, this kind of wholesale categorization of half the country is multiple time more heinous and ought to be roundly and quickly condemned before the most unthinkable persecution breaks out. Instead, cowards and Judases are beginning to reveal themselves by either their silence or patronizing “kisses”… ah, it is Gethsemane, no?”)

Finally, Daniel pointed out that, before Christmas, Trump proudly retweeted that he is “The most gay American President.” Many of you don’t even know that, but it’s true. How can we as Catholics simply ignore these obvious public incongruities with our Faith, especially when gender ideology and gay marriage are perhaps even more on the vanguard of persecution than the abortion issue? None of this detracts from the good things Trump did. But as Catholics, are we disciples of our politicians or Jesus Christ? Whom do we serve?

This is all to say that none of this was put forth in our webcasts to “attack” Donald Trump but to remind those in our audience who had lost perspective that the banner of the Gospel must be raised higher than any political flag, and that we must hold ourselves, each other, and our politicians to that standard before anything else. 

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations… teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. (Matt 28:19-20)

Truly, I did not mean to hurt any of my readers. I did not intend to give the impression that I do not support the many good things that Mr. Trump did during his tenure. I love America, I truly love its people; they make up the greatest number of my readers. But I will say this: my brother, Daniel, is more patriotic than any American I know. He is a man who has put his career and livelihood at risk to proclaim the Gospel. He has publicly and vocally stood against the evils that threaten the foundations of America, namely, the attack on marriage and the unborn. And he has freely given so much through his apostolate in order to prepare you, and America, for the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will. A man could not serve his country more nobly along side those who give their lives in its just defense.

But neither of us are willing to compromise our faith so as to be accepted by either the Right or the Left. In the words of St. Paul:

Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)

Even though some of you might still be mad at me, I love you nonetheless, and I will proclaim the truth to you, in season and out, for as long as I have breath in my lungs and the Lord wills it.

Your servant in Jesus and Our Lady,
Mark

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

Put no trust in princes,
in children of Adam powerless to save…
Better to take refuge in the LORD
than to put one’s trust in princes…
Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings,
who makes flesh his strength.
(Psalms 146:3, 118:9; Jeremiah 17:5)

Mark Mallett

Scripture – Why Won’t You Listen?

IT is a haunting and serious message to the Church from both Our Lord and Our Lady being repeated around the world in recent months: You are not listening. And today, we hear it echoed in the Mass readings.

The People of God complained to the Lord that they did not want to hear His voice because it frightened them.

Let us not again hear the voice of the LORD, our God, nor see this great fire any more, lest we die. 

So they asked, instead, that God would give them prophets to convey His message. But the Lord warned:

Anyone who will not listen to My words which the prophet speaks in My name, I Myself will hold accountable for it. Today’s first Mass reading

Sure enough, when the prophets told them what they did not want to hear, they rejected them too, to the point that they put the Lord to the test:

Oh, that today you would hear His voice:
    “Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,
    as in the day of Massah in the desert,
Where your fathers tempted Me;
    they tested me though they had seen My works.” Today’s Psalm

And so the Lord swore after forty years of their rebellion in the desert, that the unfaithful would not enter His rest in the promised land.[1]

So too, the Church has entered a particular “desert” of testing and trial since Our Lady appeared in Medjugorje forty years ago, as of this June 25th, 2021. No apparition in modern times, and perhaps the last 2000 years, has drawn more attention and borne more fruits in the universal Church: hundreds upon hundreds of priestly vocations and documented miracles, millions of conversions, thousands of apostolates…. The fruits have been so extraordinary that the Church has essentially declared Medjugorje a Marian shrine to which the clergy can now take official pilgrimages there with their flocks (see On Medjugorje… and Mother Calls).

But as the 40th anniversary approaches, the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart nears, and thus also the “period” or “era of peace” promised at Fatima — what the Church Fathers called the “sabbath rest” for the Church — we are hearing the same warnings that God addressed to the Israelites:

Oh! My wandering children who do not find the light – many of them still do not listen to my word, they do not appreciate my help, going as far as to mock these messages for the salvation of humanity. Children, you have had time for your choice, and if I look at the hearts of many of my children, I cry with pain and my Son’s heart bleeds. Children, now you will see what I never wanted your eyes to see: very strong earthquakes and all sorts of calamities such as tempests, storms, tidal waves and wars, because you did not listen to my words! You are being reduced to slavery, you are persecuted for your faith, yet everything goes on as if it were normal.  —Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, January 19th, 2021; countdowntothekingdom.com

But many read even these words, including some clergy, and still mock rather than discern them; they quickly label them as “conspiracy” rather than actually considering them in the light of the “signs of the times,” much less St. Paul’s admonition to never “despise the words of prophets, but test everything.[2] How did we come to such a place that we deride the “office” of the prophets?  How did we go from a Church with such a rich mystical heritage… to either an out-of-hand dismissal of most anything supernatural… to an intellectual snobbery that scoffs at the gifts and charisms of the Holy Spirit? The answer is that this, too, is part of the apostasy — another error of the Enlightenment period, in this case,”rationalism”, which has led to the “death of mystery.” 

On the contrary, St. Paul, one of the great Jewish scholars of his time, lists the office of the prophet as only second to the Apostles (cf. Eph 4:11).

Christ… fulfills this prophetic office, not only by the hierarchy… but also by the laity. He accordingly both establishes them as witnesses and provides them with the sense of the faith [sensus fidei] and the grace of the word. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 904

By no means does this mean embracing every claim to prophecy as true. I can tell you that our team has some healthy discussions behind the scenes before posting any of the messages on this website. Healthy skepticism, yes, not cynicism; caution, but not sarcasm; discernment, but not despising. But clearly, these have become the general attitude of a great portion of the present day Body of Christ.

Please, why are you not listening to the most important messenger in the universe, My Mother, She who with Her love does everything to protect her children in this world of confusion? Please be in silence, prayer and contemplation: do not talk. Did you want to see the signs of the end times? The signs have arrived and you still do not believe; you have been told that apostasy would enter the Church because of proud, selfish theologians, and this has happened, overturning the words of my Gospel. I told you about famines, plague and diseases that would come, and you still do not believe. I told you that the noise of war would be heard: here it is, everything has already been revealed in the Bible — state against state, governments against governments, men against men, you are afraid of each other, they have taken away your freedom and still you do not believe. Oh, how much faith will I find on My return? —Our Lord Jesus to Gisella, November 10th, 2020; countdowntothekingdom.com

My children, there is no more time: the times are short and not all of you are ready. Please listen to me and stop worrying about unnecessary things, but do what is needed. I need your help and you must not wait any longer. —Our Lady to Angela, July 26th, 2020; countdowntothekingdom.com

Children, I have been coming among you for some time now, but many of you still do not listen to me and do not open your hearts to the Lord. My children, the Lord has an immense heart and there is room for each one of you; you only have to want it, you have to want to be part of God’s heart and make room for Him in yours. —Our Lady to Simona, January 26th, 2021; countdowntothekingdom.com

The times predicted from Fatima onwards have arrived — no one will be able to say that I had not given warnings. Many have been the prophets and seers chosen to announce the truth and the dangers of this world, yet many have not listened and still do not listen. I weep over these children who are being lost; the apostasy of the Church is increasingly clear — my favored sons (priests) have refused my protection.  —Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, January 26th, 2021; countdowntothekingdom.com

As a wise priest once said to me:

In closing, we want to share with you a video below by a British woman now living in Ireland. We don’t know anything about her beyond her social media name “Cas Sunshine.” Here, we feel, is an example of a “prophetic word” for the Church that should be carefully discerned. Spoken in charity and raw sincerity, this is an example of how God often speaks through the “little ones” — not necessarily those with a Ph.D. behind their names. Indeed, any one of us can exercise the gift of prophecy, which is our baptismal duty. 

The Christian faithful are those who, inasmuch as they have been incorporated in Christ through Baptism, have been constituted as the people of God; for this reason, since they have become sharers in Christ’s priestly, prophetic, and royal office in their own manner, they are called to exercise the mission which God has entrusted to the Church to fulfill in the world, in accord with the condition proper to each one. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 871

Instead of ignoring this prophetic reality and treating it as an inconvenience, annoyance or some kind of affront to our modern theological sensibilities… wouldn’t it be more prudent to guide, root, and nourish these voices — in a word, listen?  According to Heaven, we’re already too late.

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


It’s our very sleepiness to the presence of God
that renders us insensitive to evil:
we don’t hear God because we don’t want to be disturbed,
and so we remain indifferent to evil…
t
hose of us who do not want to see
the full force of evil and
do not want to enter into His Passion

—POPE BENEDICT XVI, Catholic News Agency, Vatican City,
Apr 20, 2011, General Audience

THE AGITATORS – PART II

Posted on  by Mark

Hatred of the brethren makes room next for Antichrist;
for the devil prepares beforehand the divisions among the people,
that he who is to come may be acceptable to them.
 
—St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Church Doctor, (c. 315-386)
Catechetical Lectures, Lecture XV, n.9

THE world watched it like a soap opera. Global news incessantly covered it. For months on end, the U.S. election was the preoccupation of not only Americans but billions across the world. Families argued bitterly, friendships fractured, and social media accounts erupted, whether you lived in Dublin or Vancouver, Los Angeles or London. Defend Trump and you were exiled; criticize him and you were deceived.  Somehow, the orange-haired businessman from New York managed to agitate the world like no other politician in our times.

His rallies and infamous tweets provoked rage on the Left as he incessantly mocked the establishment and denigrated his foes. His defense of the freedom of religion and the unborn drew praise on the Right. While his foes claimed he was a threat, a dictator and fascist… those on the right claimed he was “chosen by God” to overthrow the “deep state” and “drain the swamp.” There couldn’t be two more divided views of the man — further apart than Ghandi was from Genghas Khan. 

Truth is, I think it is possible God “chose” Trump — but for different reasons. 

THE AGITATORS

In Part I, we saw the fascinating and incredible parallels between President Donald Trump and Pope Francis (read The Agitators). Though two completely different men in different offices, there is nonetheless a clear role that each man has been playing in the “signs of the times” — I will explain why in a moment. First, as I wrote in Part I back in September, 2019:

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… 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. —Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, D.D. (1895-1979); (source possibly “The Catholic Hour”) 

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

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; some citations of this passage include the words “Christ and the antichrist” as above. Deacon Keith Fournier, an attendee, reports it as above; cf. Catholic Online; August 13, 1976

This is all to say that I believe these two men have been used as instruments of God to sift the hearts of men. In the case of Trump, he has been used to test the foundations of freedom in the Western World, expressed in the Constitution of the United States. In the case of Pope Francis, he has been used to test the foundations of truth in the Catholic Church. With Trump, his unorthodox style and provocations have exposed those with Marxist and socialist agendas; they have come out into the open, their cause no longer in the darkness. Likewise, Francis’ unorthodox and Jesuit style of creating a “mess” has exposed the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” eager to “update” Church teaching; they have come out into the open, their intent clear, their boldness growing. 

In other words, we are watching the collapse of the remnant Roman Empire. As St. John Henry Newman stated:

I do not grant that the Roman empire is gone. Far from it: the Roman empire remains even to this day… And as the horns, or kingdoms, still exist, as a matter of fact, consequently we have not yet seen the end of the Roman empire. —St. John Henry Newman (1801-1890), The Times of Antichrist, Sermon 1

THE POLITICAL RESTRAINER

Given that the Roman Empire converted to Christianity, today, one can consider Western civilization as both a blend of its Christian/political roots. Today, the two forces that restrainthe complete collapse of the foundational principles of that Empire — and hold back the tide of the empire of Communism — are the Catholic Church and America; Catholicism, through its unchanging teachings, and America through its military and economic might. But just over a decade ago, Pope Benedict XVI compared our time to the decline 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… For all its new hopes and possibilities, our world is at the same time troubled by the sense that moral consensus is collapsing, consensus without which juridical and political structures cannot function. Consequently the forces mobilized for the defence of such structures seem doomed to failure

Then, in words which were clearly prescient, Benedict spoke of the “eclipse of reason” (or as I wrote just two months before that, the “eclipse of truth”). Today, it has become literal as scientists, religious, and conservative voices are literally being purged from social and mainstream media and ejected from their careers for holding “ideas” contrary to leftist dogma. 

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; cf. vatican va

Let no one deceive you in any way; for that Day [of the Lord] will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, 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.

The early Church Fathers further explained this Gobal Rebellion:

This revolt or falling off is generally understood, by the ancient Fathers, of a revolt from the Roman empire, which was first to be destroyed, before the coming of Antichrist. It may, perhaps, be understood also of a revolt of many nations from the Catholic Church which has, in part, happened already, by the means of Mahomet, Luther, etc. and it may be supposed, will be more general in the days of the Antichrist. —footnote on 2 Thess 2:3, Douay-Rheims Holy Bible, Baronius Press Limited, 2003; p. 235

In a sense, the removal of Trump from office is the fruition of this revolt or revolution insofar as the newly elected President is intent upon codifying the culture of death and paving the way for the United Nations’ “Global Reset” under the monicker “Build Back Better” — which President Joe Biden curiously adopted as his own slogan (the website buildbackbetter.gov actually redirects to the official website of the White House). As I have explained in several writings, this programme of the UN is nothing but neo-Communism in a Green hat, promoting transhumanism and a “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” which is ultimately man “proclaiming himself to be God.”

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

But the Antichrist has thus far been held back, both by a political edifice (Roman Empire) and spiritual restrainer (explained in a moment).

And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed. (2 Thess 2:3-4)

What does The Coming Collapse of America and the West have to do with the rest of the world? Cardinal Robert Sarah gives a lucid and succinct answer:

The spiritual crisis involves the entire world. But its source is in Europe. People in the West are guilty of rejecting God… The spiritual collapse thus has a very Western character… Because [Western man] refuses to acknowledge himself as an heir [of spiritual and cultural patrimony], man is condemned to the hell of liberal globalization in which individual interests confront one another without any law to govern them besides profit at any price… Transhumanism is the ultimate avatar of this movement. Because it is a gift from God, human nature itself becomes unbearable for Western man. This revolt is spiritual at root. —Catholic HeraldApril 5th, 2019

THE SPIRITUAL RESTRAINER 

Clearly, the rebellion against God is in full swing. North America has completely fallen now to radical anti-Gospel agendas while Australia and Europe have abandoned their Christian roots, save for Poland and Hungary who remain engaged in the “final confrontation.” But who is left to defend Christianity against the rising Beast? Suddenly, the apocalyptic prediction of St. John Paul II is taking on startling proportions as the new U.S. Administration has promised to codify abortion into law.[1] 

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

…the very right to life is being denied or trampled upon… This is the sinister result of a relativism which reigns unopposed: the “right” ceases to be such, because it is no longer firmly founded on the inviolable dignity of the person, but is made subject to the will of the stronger part. In this way democracy, contradicting its own principles, effectively moves towards a form of totalitarianism. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Evangelium Vitae, “The Gospel of Life”, n. 18, 20

But what about the “restrainer” mentioned by St. Paul. Who is “he”? Perhaps Benedict XVI gives us another clue:

Abraham, the father of faith, is by his faith the rock that holds back chaos, the onrushing primordial flood of destruction, and thus sustains creation. Simon, the first to confess Jesus as the Christ… now becomes by virtue of his Abrahamic faith, which is renewed in Christ, the rock that stands against the impure tide of unbelief and its destruction of man. —POPE BENEDICT XVI (Cardinal Ratzinger), Called to Communion, Understanding the Church Today, Adrian Walker, Tr., p. 55-56

Today, the Barque of Peter is listing; its sails torn by division, its hull gaping open from sexual sins; its quarters ravaged by financial scandals; its rudder damaged by ambiguous teaching; and its crew members, from laity to captains, seemingly in disarray. It would be an oversimplification to consider the Pope alone holding back the The Spiritual Tsunami

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. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Light of the World, A Conversation with Peter Seewald, p. 166

And yet, the Pope “is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful.”[2] Hence, given the crises that abound…

…there is the need for the Passion of the Church, which naturally reflects itself on the person of the Pope, but the Pope is in the Church and therefore what is announced is the suffering for the Church… —POPE BENEDICT XVI, interview with reporters on his flight to Portugal; translated from Italian, Corriere della Sera, May 11, 2010

Benedict was referring to the vision of Fatima in 1917[3] where the Holy Father ascends a mountain and is martyred along with many other clergy, religious, and laity. As I have stated so many times before, there is no authentic Catholic prophecy that foretells a canonically elected pope destroying the Church — a clear contradiction of Matthew 16:18.[4] Rather, there are many prophecies from saints and seers where the Pope is either forced to flee Rome, or is killed. This is why we must pray especially for our Pontiff in these darkening days. 

Also, it seems clear that God is using him as an instrument to shake the faith of the Church, to expose those who are Judases, those who are falling asleep, those who will follow Christ like St. John, and those who will remain beneath the Cross like Mary… until the time of testing in Our Gethsemane is over, and the Passion of the Church reaches its climax. 

But then follows The Resurrection of the Church when Christ will wipe away our tears, our mourning turned into gladness as He revives His Bride for a glorious Era of Peace. Hence, the Agitators are but another sign to us that The Eastern Gate is Opening and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart is nearing. 

God… is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world. —Message of Fatima, vatican.va

THE AGITATORS

Posted on  by Mark

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 went 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

Mother Teresa

“Keep the joy of loving God in your heart and share this joy with all you meet especially your family. Be holy – let us pray.” -Mother Teresa

Her Words

A clean heart is a free heart. A free heart can love Christ with an undivided love in chastity, convinced that nothing and nobody will separate it from his love. Purity, chastity, and virginity created a special beauty in Mary that attracted God’s attention. He showed his great love for the world by giving Jesus to her.

There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives – the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it. The poor you may have right in your own family. Find them. Love them.

Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart. Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness.

Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don’t only give your care, but give your heart as well.

The more you have, the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have the more free you are. Poverty for us is a freedom. It is not mortification, a penance. It is joyful freedom. There is no television here, no this, no that. But we are perfectly happy.

I pray that you will understand the words of Jesus, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Ask yourself “How has he loved me? Do I really love others in the same way?” Unless this love is among us, we can kill ourselves with work and it will only be work, not love. Work without love is slavery.

Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing.

A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace.

THE POLITICS OF DEATH

Posted on  by Mark

LORI Kalner lived through Hitler’s regime. When she heard classrooms of children beginning to sing songs of praise for Obama and his call for “Change” (listen here and here), it set off alarms and memories of the eerie years of Hitler’s transformation of Germany society. Today, we see the fruits of the “politics of Death”, echoed throughout the world by “progressive leaders” over the past five decades and now reaching their devastating pinnacle, particularly under the presidency of “Catholic” Joe Biden”, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and many other leaders throughout the Western World and beyond. 

Below Lori’s testimony is a followup broadcast to Mark Mallett and Prof. Daniel O’Connor’s last webcast On Secular Messianismwhere they addressed the dangers of putting faith in politicians or the State instead of Jesus Christ. They pick up where they left off and finish with the warning Heaven is sending now to the entire world. 

In Germany, when Hitler came to power, it was a time of terrible financial depression. Money was worth nothing. In Germany people lost homes and jobs, just like in the American Depression in the 1930s…

In those days, in my homeland, Adolph Hitler was elected to power by promising “Change.” …So Hitler was elected to power by only 1/3 the popular vote. A coalition of other political parties in parliament made him supreme leader. Then, when he was leader, he disgraced and expelled everyone in parliament who did not go along with him.

Yes. Change came to my homeland as the new leader promised it would.

The teachers in German schools began to teach the children to sing songs in praise of Hitler. This was the beginning of the Hitler Youth movement. It began with praise of the Fuhrer’s programs on the lips of innocent children. Hymns in praise of Hitler and his programs were being sung in the schoolrooms and in the play yard. Little girls and boys joined hands and sang these songs as they walked home from school.

My brother came home and told Papa what was happening at school. The political hymns of children proclaimed “Change” was coming to our homeland and the Fuhrer was a leader we could trust. I will never forget my father’s face. Grief and fear. He knew that the best propaganda of the Nazis was song on the lips of little children. Soon the children’s songs praising the Fuhrer were heard everywhere on the streets and over the radio. “With our Fuhrer to lead us, we can do it! We can change the world!”

Soon after that Papa, a pastor, was turned away from visiting elderly parishioners in hospitals. The people he had come to bring comfort of God’s Word, were “no longer there.” Where had they vanished to while under nationalized health care? It became an open secret. The elderly and sick began to disappear from hospitals feet first as “mercy killing” became the policy. Children with disabilities and those who had Down syndrome were euthanized. People whispered, “Maybe it is better for them now. Put them out of misery. They are no longer suffering… And, of course, their death is better for the treasury of our nation. Our taxes no longer must be spent to care for such a burden.”

And so murder was called mercy.

The government took over private business. Industry and health care were “nationalized.” (NA-ZI means National Socialist Party) The businesses of all Jews were seized…. The world and God’s word were turned upside down. Hitler promised the people economic Change? Not change. It was, rather, Lucifer’s very ancient Delusion leading to Destruction.

What began with the propaganda of children singing a catchy tune ended in the deaths of millions of children. The reality of what came upon us is so horrible that you in this present generation cannot imagine it …Unless your course of the church in America is spiritually changed now, returning to the Lord, there are new horrors yet to come. I trembled last night when I heard the voices of American children raised in song, praising the name of Obama, the charismatic fellow who claims he is the American Messiah. Yet I have heard what this man Obama says about abortion and the “mercy killing” of tiny babies who are not wanted.

There are so few of us left to warn you. I have heard that there are 69 million Catholics in America and 70 million Evangelical Christians. Where are your voices? Where is your outrage? Where is passion and your vote? Do you vote based on an abortionist’s empty promises and economics? Or do you vote according to the Bible?

Thus says the Lord about every living child still in the womb… “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you…”

…I have experienced the signs of the politics of Death in my youth. I see them again now…—Lori Kalner, wicatholicmusings.blogspot.com
