We see very dark clouds today, Phillip. What does this tell us? That it will rain. But, if for some reason you did not know this, and I did, and you needed to know in order to save your life, surely I, your loving father, would say to you: "Look at the clouds, it is going to rain, Phillip." And if you didn’t hear me I would shout. And if you did not hear or heed, I would repeat and repeat again. This is what God did before the end. He flooded the 19th and 20th centuries with Warnings from Heaven. He used holy people as His messengers and put the Signature of His miracles all around His Messages to authenticate them for us. For not even the devil can perform a real miracle; he can only project false appearances.
          God did not leave any important truth unrevealed. He warned us about the Divine and the human Chastisements to come if we did not stop sinning and allowing the enemy free reign. He pointed definitively to the infiltration of the enemy into the Church in their attempt to destroy it. He spoke of their plan for a One-World Church that would merge with their One-World Government. His greatest, most urgent warnings were of the errors promoted by His enemies that were designed to steal our Faith, the most precious gift He had given us.
          Remember what Feuerbach said, " …this being of man in community – this is God." If community is god, then the State, which is supposed to represent the community of men is above any individual or group in the community. But the truth is that community is an abstraction. God created individual human beings, not communities or races. Therefore, the primary relationship is between God and a human person. This is where the Catholic Faith resides, in persons, in living souls. Each person finds the hearth of his own personal home and destiny in this Faith that reveals the true God to him. This is where holiness and sanctity, reasonableness, order and all that is good is to be found in this world. Faithful souls are the building blocks of the Church and of society. They are really united in the unity of the one Voice of God, the Word, which speaks to each one of them unequivocally. This is the Community we call the Church. There is no contradiction within it, yet there is no end to the richness of diversity within it, for God deals with each human personality.
          But Communism involves elite satanists playing God by merging of church and the state, while using the doctrine of their separation to keep true religion from "interfering" in their domination of the affairs of men. As in every case, what they say is the opposite of what they do: HYPOCRISY is the real name of their stupid "Super-State."
          It was essential to Satan’s forces to appear to take over the voice of the Catholic Church, in order to lead the sheep astray. Their infiltrators who entered clerical and lay positions of influence were under orders to subtly change doctrine over time, by controlling official positions and offices by propaganda and slight of hand and misrepresentations. Modernism is the error they used. Let’s read this definition of it:

          "The first moment, the decades of the Nineteenth Century prior to the First Vatican Council, is identified by the work of a group of


priests, chiefly German, under the leadership of Father Anton Guenther (1783-1863). Enamored with the Modern Philosophy of Descartes and Kant, alienated from the patrimony of Christian Philosophy, Guentherism taught that the dogmas of faith are infallibly true, indeed, but only with a relative truth: relative to the progress reached by science and philosophy at the time of the dogmatic definition. As this progress advances, the articles and dogmas of faith must be re-interpreted accordingly. Definitions and formulations of faith, the best possible when the Church first stated them, become outmoded with the passage of time, and quite simply must be replaced. Thus the dogmas develop intrinsically, just as science and philosophy do. There is no absolute truth in the Catholic Fact, but only a relative truth, always more perfectible.
          It is this "prescription," as the Early church termed it, this "Ordinary and Universal Magisterium" in the words of Vatican I, which Modernism sets aside. Unlike earlier heretical movements, it takes its position not against this or that particular Article of Faith, but against the profession of the Apostolic Faith as such. This is done by a re-interpretation, as it is called, of the entire Creed in the light of Modern Philosophy. As a writer in the Encyclopedia Britannica puts it accurately, the Modernists "sought to re-interpret traditional Catholic teaching in the light of nineteenth century philosophical, historical and psychological theories." Participating in the essential characteristics of Modern Philosophy as such, in its Cartesian, Spinozan and Kantian metaphysics, it introduces into Religious thought the eclipse of the transcendent personal God of Revelation characteristic of Modern Philosophy, and hence its shift toward man-centrism, toward positivism and empiricism in epistemology. Faith, the very heart of religion, is the first element to suffer this reinterpretation: it is now an experience of the Divine (as the God of Abraham comes to be called) and not an intellectual assent to the Word of God revealed and committed to a teaching Church to hand on by means of the human discourse of Evangelization and Catechesis."

          Modernism was simply Communism warring against the Church while pretending to be of the Church. But it was really the church of man or the anti-church trying to misrepresent and discredit the true Church it tried to impersonate.
          Sometimes the enemy published phony private revelations, like those at Medjugorje, Yugoslavia in order to scandalize the pious and lead astray the foolish by sowing error and confusion, while discrediting true apparitions by parody. Those of us who took it upon ourselves to test the spirits and to publish the true Messages of Heaven had to use several criteria: 1) the complete orthodoxy or purity of doctrine in the Messages, 2) the proven sanctity of the seer, 3) the proven miracles, and 4) the agreement of the Messages’ statements with other Messages already known to be true. We leaned on Tradition most heavily; for, as St. Paul said: "Therefore, brethren, stand fast: and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle. (2 Thessalonians 2:12-14) and "But though we (Bishops), or an angel from heaven, preach a doctrine to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema." (Galatians 1:8)
          The approval of the Pope was available only up to Fatima in 1917. And the enemy within fought and delayed this approval for 13 years. In 1966 Pope Paul VI ‘abrogated Canon Law articles 1399 and 2318, permitting us to follow and publish


private revelations without ecclesiastical approval, provided that they did not endanger Faith and Morals.’ A good bishop’s approval or disapproval was also a valuable indication of authenticity, as at Medjugorje, where the bishop disapproved of and condemned these supposed revelations from the beginning. But the disapproval of bishops or clergy known to be liberals or heretical could also be valuable. Their thumbs down were an indication that the Messages were probably true.
          Phillip, let us now review Catholic prophecy concerning the latter times up to the 1990’s. We begin with Holy Scripture:

          "But of the times and moments, brethren, you need not, that we should write to you: for yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall so come, as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, peace and security; then shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the pains upon her that is with child, and they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. For all you are the children of light, and children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness." (1 Thessalonians 5:1-5)
          "And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth: and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him, whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, and in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity." (2 Thessalonians 2:8-11)

          A life of unrepentant immorality prevents one from avoiding the "operation of error," but the "children of Light" shall not be taken by surprise with the coming of the Lord. Modernist clergy liked to repeat every year that you cannot know the day or hour, so don’t worry about it; don’t believe anything you hear; don’t pass the word along. Do nothing; just be ready all the time to save your soul. They never quoted St. Paul: "despise not prophecy, but test the spirits." And they did not understand how this verse applied to them: "Know also this, that in the last days shall come on dangerous times. Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud … having an appearance indeed of godliness, but denying the power thereof." (II Timothy 3:1-2,5)
          At least 99% of the pastors in my time, Phillip, did not recognize the signs of the times. They did not prepare their flocks. They were infected with Modernism and humanism, and doctrinal and liturgical errors of all kinds. They especially reviled all the Warnings from Heaven. They would not speak to you or answer you concerning these matters. They were bound by human respect and false authority. We were told by heaven that the clergy was under especially heavy attack by the evil spirits let loose on the earth and that they needed our prayers greatly.
          In the Black Mass of the Satanists the congregation actually "kissed the butt" of the priest. This phrase became a common term to describe the fear of human opinion or servile human respect, the greatest tool of Satan. In his services of adoration it was a sign of worshipping him. Those motivated by human respect also served him, indirectly worshipping a principle of his evil kingdom.
          "So those who acted out of servile human respect were actually worshipping Satan?"


          If they did so not out of human weakness, but as habitual principle, yes, Phillip, they were. Here is a good description of it:

          "To give ourselves up to the spiritual life is to put ourselves out of harmony with the world around us. We make a discord even with much that is amiable and affectionate, and with which, as natural virtue, we cannot be altogether without sympathy. We live in a different world, have different interests and speak a different language, and the two worlds will not mingle. Grace holds us in one world, nature draws us down again into the other …
          It (human respect) is as miserable as it is evil … No slavery is more degradedand unhappy. What a misery to be ashamed of our duties and principles! … Religion which ought to be our peace, becomes our torment. … A general wish to please, a laying ourselves out in particular subject matters in order to please, building castles in the air and imagining heroic acts, reflecting on the praise bestowed upon us, and giving way to low spirits when dispraised – these are all manifestations of this horrible human respect.
          It is the death of all religion. The especial task of Christians is the realization of the invisible world. They have different standards of right and wrong from the votaries of earth. They live inextricably mixed up with the children of the world, as men using the same language with different meanings and the confusion and apparent deceit grow worse every day."

          In order to carry on our mission, Phillip, we had to obey Jesus’ summons to suffer reproach and disfavor as He and His Saints did before us. Listen:

          "Those who love the Church, the Body of Christ, will suffer as did our Lord, who is ‘the Way, the Truth, and the Life."
          "Whom the Lord loveth, He chastiseth; and He scourgeth every son whom He receiveth." (Hebrews 12:6)
          "And all that will live Godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." (II Timothy 3:12)
          Our Lord Jesus Christ was betrayed by one of His chosen Apostles, denied by His Vicar St. Peter, condemned in plenary council, and crucified at the instigation of the Jews, His own priests and people."

          Our last five Popes had been murdered. Millions and millions of Catholics had been murdered in our own generation. But no servant of human respect could add these things up to see that we were in the "Last Times." They were so disconnected with Christ’s Suffering in His own Church that they thought the end times were way far into the future. Some thought, Scripture concerning the end times was just a didactic myth, like the stories of Adam, the Flood, Job, and Jonah.
          Our priests seemed to regard most highly the "wisdom" coming out of their own mouths. They were not simply faithful witnesses to Christ and His Church; they were faithful witnesses to their own conceit. With this leadership the laity was in great danger. Each person had to shoulder responsibility for their own education and guidance by the true doctrine and tradition of the Church.
          I am becoming irritated, Son. Let us move on to the ancient prophecies alluding to our times and just keep going. The first thing to clear up though is a confusion about the Last Times. Whether Christ would come in a Day of the Lord, a prejudgement, before He came in the Final Judgement at the end of time. Here we consult at length an


eminent Doctor of Theology, Rev. Benjamin Martin Sanchez, in his book The Last Times:

          Since some lamentably confuse the "last times," with the "end of the world," I shall first explain this theme and clarify it with the words of the prophets.
          As I indicated, in the prologue, the "last times", according to the Bible, are those times characterized by a "lack of faith" and are the last times of the Messianic era, which we can denominate as the "times of incredulity."
          The following Biblical texts prove this premise: II St. Peter 3_3-4; St. Jude 1:17-18; II Timothy 3:1-5; II Thess.2:1-11.
          In those times, there will be a judgment of nations or a great chastisement upon the world, which the prophets announced frequently, because men will be living far from God and will turn their backs to the Gospel of Christ.
          The world will come out of the chastisement purified. After the punishment a period of wonderful peace and sanctity will follow during which time Christ will reign "from one end of the world to the other." During His reign "all His enemies will fall at His feet" and they will render Him their vassalage. His Church will be gloriously triumphant.
          The private messages and prophecies we present, as a continuation, agree perfectly, in every detail, with the texts of the prophets who are quoted hereafter. Let me reiterate, the purification of the world should not be confused with the "final judgment" about which the Bible tells us not even the angels of heaven know the date.
          That which is announced is not the end of the world (it cannot be announced) but a judgment of nations, a minor judgment, as the Message of Heede, Germany, warns us or a miniature judgment as Theresa Neumann also announced.
          We confirm this assertation with the ensuing texts foretelling "a great chastisement" coming upon the world, after which there will remain a small number of inhabitants who will enjoy a great peace and who will truly form the real people of God, continuing to invoke Him.

          Isaias 24:1-6. The thought of the prophet is: because the earth has been profaned by its inhabitants it will be devastated and there will only remain a few people upon it.
          This small number of survivors is reflected in the following imagery telling us that because of the punishment which shall overcome the world, "it shall be thus in the midst of the earth, in the midst of the earth, in the midst of the people, as if a few olives, that remain, should be shaken out of the olive tree: or grapes, when the vintage is ended." (Isaias 24:13) Therefore, there will remain some inhabitants after the great catastrophy, even though only a few, it is, nevertheless, an evident sign that it is not the end of the world.

          Isaias 66: 15-16; 19 and 23. There are many who doubt that the Gospel has been preached to all the world. However, it is one thing to have the Gospel preached and quite another to have it accepted. Therefore, the words of Christ, "And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations, and then shall the consummation come." (St. Matt. 24:14) will be fully accomplished after the world catastrophy, or judgment of the nations, announced by the prophets, conforming to the words of Isaias. Then, too, all will be


fulfilled as our Lord said: "And there shall be one fold and one shepherd." (Eze. 37:24; St. John 10:16)

          Sophonias 1:14-17; 3:8-9, 13. Please note that after this judgment some survivors do remain, invoking the name of God, so it is therefore quite clear that if there are some survivors, after he executes His just sentence upon the nations, on the "day of the Lord," it cannot be the end of the world. One is very different from the other.

          Zacharias 13:8-9. "And there shall be in all the earth, saith the Lord, two parts in it shall be scattered, and shall perish: But the third Part shall be left therein.
          And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined; and I will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on My name, and I will hear them. I will say: Thou art My people: and they shall say: The Lord is my God."
          Note, that in the above text, there is to come a great chastisement over the earth, where only a third part remains and that they will be purified and will continue to invoke the name of God.
          Other parts of the Bible likewise confirm that once the universe is renewed, it will serve as the scene of human life. (II St. Peter 3:10-13)
          We could continue to cite many other texts about the same theme of the judgment of the nations, where the wicked will perish, however, it is sufficient to give the preceding to demonstrate that the universal judgment, which will be public, social and collective, against the nations, is not the final judgment nor the end of the world.
          A modern Scripture scholar, Fr. Garcia Ramos, C.M.F., has given us a clarification about this question: "As there are two ways of judging the dead, the personal and the universal so, also, there are two kinds of judgments of the living which are the same, the personal and the universal, according to which the Lord punishes a single nation (the day of the Lord against Egypt, against Jerusalem, against Babylonia, etc.) and that of all nations and peoples collectively at the same time."
          The universal judgment of the living we simply call universal judgment and that of the dead is called the final judgment. The final judgement of the dead is postponed for another time, the end of the world.
          The distinction is already expressed in the dogmatic formula: "And He will come again to judge the living and the dead," which is seen various times in Holy Scriptures. (Acts 10:42; II Tim. 4:1; I Peter 4:5)
          Now, we shall present a very interesting prophecy about Jerusalem and some of the evangelical texts containing words of Jesus Christ which seemingly refer to the last times omitting those which make a full reference to the end of the world.
          TIMES OF ANGUISH (St. Matt. 24; St. Mark 13; St. Luke 21)
          THE GREAT TRIBULATION (St. Matt. 24:21-24; St. Mark 13: 19-22) "For in those days shall be such tribulations as were not from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, neither shall be. And unless the Lord had shortened the days, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect which He hath chosen, He hath shortened the days … for there shall rise up false Christs and false prophets, and they shall show signs and wonders, to seduce (if it were possible) even the elect."
The "elect," without a doubt, are the "remnant" who are left on earth and who will be preserved by God from death during the great catastrophe or judgment of the nations.


          How will this tribulation be for men? Jesus Christ has already told us: "such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be." St. John, in the Apocalypse, speaks to us about the seven trumpets that are like divine commands, which will bring upon the world those calamities God uses to exercise His judgments. We are told that the chastisements are so great "upon those who have not the sign of God on their foreheads" that their "torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man" and that "in those days men shall seek death, and shall not find it: and they shall desire to die, and death shall fly from them." (Apoc. 9: 5-6)
          "Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth: by reason of the rest of the voices of the three angels, who are yet to sound the trumpet." (Apoc. 8:13)
          These will be followed by cosmic catastrophies, hard and calamitous times, "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, by reason of the confusion of the roaring of the sea and of the waves; men withering away for fear, and expectation of what shall come upon the whole world. For the powers of heaven shall be moved." (St. Luke 21: 25-26)
          In the predictions of Jesus Christ there appears the revelation of two events intertwined; the destruction of Jerusalem and the universal ruin at the end of the times. The first was simply a pale image of the terrible desolation that comes later. If the prophecy about Jerusalem was fulfilled, we should surely believe that all the other things Jesus predicted will be fulfilled, too.
          EXHORTATION CONCERNING VIGILENCE (St. Luke 17: 26-30; 21: 34-36)
          "And as it came to pass in the days of Noe, so shall it be in the days of the Son of man. They did eat and drink, they married wives, and were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark; and the flood came and destroyed them all.
          "Likewise as it came to pass in the days of Lot: they did eat and drink, they bought and sold, they planted and built. And in the day that Lot went out of Sodom; it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed.
          "And take heed to yourselves, lest perhaps your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting and drunkenness, and the cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly. For as a snare shall it come upon all that sit upon the face of the whole earth.
          "Watch ye therefore, praying at all times, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are to come, and to stand before the Son of man."
Jesus Christ announced to His apostles, referring to the destruction of Jerusalem, that "when you shall see Jerusalem compassed about with an army; then know that the desolation thereof is at hand. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains; and those who are in the midst thereof, depart out: and those who are in the countries, not enter into it." (St. Luke 21: 20-21)
          The Christians, of Jerusalem, who had taken into account this prophecy, left the holy city before its downfall, retiring to Pella on the other side of the Jordan, and so were saved. However, when Jesus Christ refers to the great chastisement which is to burst upon the world, He simply tells us that it will come suddenly, without warning, "in that


hour we least expect" and for this reason we should be prepared everyday. We should be even more prepared when we see the foretold signs because, "the day of the Lord shall come as a thief; in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence, and the elements shall be melted with heat, and the earth and the works which are in it, shall be burnt up. Seeing then that all these things are to be dissolved, what manner of people ought you be in holy conduct and godliness. Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the Lord …?" (II St. Peter3:10-12)
I Thessalonians 5:1-3
                   II Thessalonians 2:1-12
          One of the characteristics of the "last times" will be the general apostasy. The apostasy will be a religious defection, a separation or a seduction brought to a head by false messiahs …
          The "man of sin" is the Antichrist whose triumph will lead men to an apostasy, "the mystery of iniquity already worketh," which is working in the world disguised in discord and confusion. Actually, at the present time, one can note the infiltration of an apostasy everywhere and it is aided by the attitude of so-called Christians who are surrendering to error instead of defending the dogmatic truths of their faith and who are accommodating themselves, in their thinking, to a rationalized world, heeding theories that kill their faith.
          … But the worst of all, is that many of the apostates, for the large part, are staying within the Church (II Tim. 3:1-7) and infecting others. (Gal. 5:9)
          A most impressive announcement of Christ about the defection from the faith, despite the promise of His assistance to the Church until the consummation of the centuries, is: "But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?" (St. Luke 18:8) … And directly connected to the above another equally important announcement of His: "And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold." (St. Matt. 24:12)
          II TIMOTHY 3:1-5; 4:2-4.
          II ST. PETER 2:1-2; 3:1-13.
          "But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to His promises, in which justice dwelleth."

I ST. JOHN 2:18-23; II ST. JOHN 1:7
          … "This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father and the Son.
… Many are now actually falling into error, but they are those who never sincerely adhered to the truth of the faith.

          ST. JUDE 1:8, 12-21
          …"Now of these Enoch also, the seventh from Adam prophecied, saying: Behold, the Lord cometh with thousands of His saints. To execute judgment upon all, and to reprove all the ungodly …"

                    1) St. Augustine, in his Commentary on the 7th Psalm, says:"There will be few with pure and sincere faith among the Christians," adding "The antichrist will be seated in the temple, that is, in the Church, as if the people of God were formed of a multitude of the impious."
                    2) St. Ephraim, in his treatise "Of the Consummation of the Century," assures that "when the Antichrist comes the apostasy of the century will be completed."


                    3) St. Hippolytus (martyr of the III Century) in his treatise "Of the Consummation of the World," recognizes that "the seduction will fill the entire world;’ that the deserted city of Isaias, Chapter 1, is the Church; then the pastors will be converted into wolves until the end when all will believe in the Antichrist.
          … The results we obtain from these texts and commentaries show us that in the epoch of the end of the times there will be very little faith and that very few will still persevere. Therefore, disorder and dissention will reign due to the ambition and the spirit of pride men will possess which carries in itself the confusion of ideas.
          The apostasy will be general and this will be caused by habits’ more than doctrines, since the Apostles tell us of the abundance of concupisciences of the heart which will be produced by a corrupting naturalism causing the faith to cool. There will not be any life of piety, but only men with an exterior or outward appearance of virtue who will, in fact, be far from God.

1.     Message Given to the World at Fatima.
     In 1917, the Blessed Virgin appeared at Fatima, Portugal, to three young shepherds, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, ranging in age from ten to seven years. Lucia is the only one of the three seers still alive, presently living in the Convent of Descalced Carmelite nuns of Coimbra, north of Fatima.
     The Message, or secret of Fatima, has three parts. The first was the vision of Hell; the second Lucia tells us was:
     "As if to ask for help, we raised our eyes to the Lady, who told us, with kindness and sadness: ‘You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish on earth the devotion to My Immaculate heart. If people do what I tell you many souls will be saved and there will be peace.
     But if it is not done and if the world does not cease offending God, Divine Justice will manifest itself with newer and even greater punishments. Russia will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed…
     This war (1914-1918) will soon end, but if men do not cease to offend God, another and a worse war will begin during the next pontificate.’"
     … the child, Jacinta, later said something she repeated on her deathbed: "If men will repent, God will pardon them, but if they do not amend their lives, there will come upon the earth the most terrible chastisement ever known."
     These extracts are, briefly, the first two parts of the Fatima Message.
     … Although, the third part of the secret of Fatima remains hidden …we can dimly see what it might contain through another document already published.

(Note: This was given to Father Agustin Fuentes who was, at the time, the postulator of the Cause of Beatification of the two little Seers, Francisco and Jacinta.)
          "I bring you a message of extreme urgency: the Holy Father has permitted me to visit Lucia.
          She received me sadly. She was very thin and quite afflicted. Upon seeing me she said: "Father, our Lady is very unhappy because they have not taken her message of 1917 seriously. Neither the good nor the bad have paid any attention to it. The good continue their way without preoccupying themselves with it, they do not heed Her celestial requests.


The bad walk through life swollen with perdition, not taking into account the punishment that threatens them. Believe me, Father, God will chastise the world very soon. Think, Father, about all the souls who will fall into Hell. This will happen because no one prays, because they do not do penance.
          All this is the reason why the Blessed Virgin is sad. Father, tell everyone that our Lady has, frequently, announced to me that many nations will disappear off the face of the earth. Russia is the scourge chosen by God to punish mankind, if we, through prayer and the sacraments, do not obtain the grace of their conversion. Tell them, Father, tell them that the devil has begun a decisive battle against our Lady, because what most afflicts the Immaculate heart of Mary and the Sacred heart of Jesus is the fall of the souls of religious and priests.
          The devil knows that when religious and priests fail in their beautiful vocations they carry along with them many souls into hell. And now, precisely, is the moment to stop the chastisement of Heaven. We have at our disposition two very efficacious means of doing this: prayer and sacrifice.
"The devil does everything he can to distract us and take away our liking for prayer; we shall save ourselves or condemn ourselves together. Furthermore, Father, it is now necessary to tell the people that they should not wait for a call to penitence and to prayer from the Holy Father, nor from the Bishops, nor the pastors, nor the Superiors. It is the right moment for them to use their own initiative in fulfilling good and holy works and reform their lives as the Holy Virgin desires.
          The devil desires to strengthen himself through consecrated souls; he tries to corrupt them so he can deceive others into a final impenitence. He uses many tricks even the ruse of suggesting tardiness in entering a religious life.
          The results are a sterility of interior life and a coldness among the laity keeping them from renouncing pleasures and from offering a total immolation of themselves to God.
          Tell them, Father, that two things are the basis of the sanctification of Jacinta and Francisco, the sorrow of our Lady and the vision of hell.
          If is as if our Lady were between two swords: On one side She sees humanity obstinate and indifferent facing the announced chastisements and on the other side She sees how we profane the Sacraments and ignore the punishment which is coming ever nearer and nearer, remaining incredulous, sensuous and materialistic. Our Lady has said: "We are on the border of the last times."
          Our Lady has told me three times:
          a)     First: She has affirmed that the devil has begun a decisive battle, that is to say, from which one or the other will win or lose. We are with God or we are with the devil.
          b)     Second: She repeated to me that the last remedies given to the world are the Holy Rosary and the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
          c)     Third: She told me that other means of salvation have been despised by men many times. In Her anguish She offers us the last anchor of salvation which is Herself (perhaps the other means were Her numerous apparitions, signs of tears, messages of various seers scattered throughout the world).
          Our Lady has also said that if we will not listen and continue to offend God, we will not be pardoned. Father, it is urgent to understand this terrible reality, we do not wish to frighten souls, but it is an urgent call to humanity.
          Since the Blessed Virgin has given such a great remedy as the


Rosary, there does not exist a single material, spiritual, national or international problem that cannot be solved through the Holy Rosary and our sacrifices. To pray the Rosary with love and piety will console Mary and erase the numerous tears of Her Immaculate Heart." (taken from the "Messagero del Cuore di Maria" No. 8-9 August –September, 1961, Rome, Italy)

THE SECRET OF LA SALETTE in Melanie’s own words
          "Melanie, what I am about to tell you now will not always be a secret. You may make it public in 1858.
          The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their love of honours and pleasures, the priests have become cesspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking vengeance, and vengeance is hanging over their heads. Woe to the priests and to those dedicated to God who by their unfaithfulness and their wicked lives are crucifying my Son again! The sins of those dedicated to God cry out towards heaven and call for vengeance, and now vengeance is at their door, for there is no one left to beg mercy and forgiveness for the people. There are no more generous souls, there is no one left worthy of offering a stainless sacrifice to the Eternal for the sake of the world.
          God will strike in an unprecedented way.
          Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God will exhaust His wrath upon them, and no one will be able to escape so many afflictions together.
          The chiefs, the leaders of the people of god have neglected prayer and penance, and the devil has bedimmed their intelligence. They have become wandering stars which the old devil will drag along with his tail to make them perish. God will allow the old serpent to cause divisions among those who reign in every society and in every family. Physical and moral agonies will be suffered. God will abandon mankind to itself and will send punishments which will follow one after the other for more than thirty-five years.
          The Society of men is on the eve of the most terrible scourges and of gravest events. Mankind must expect to be ruled with an iron rod and to drink from the chalice of the wrath of God.
          May the curate of my Son, Pope Pius IX never leave Rome again after 1859; may he, however, be steadfast and noble, may he fight with the weapons of faith and love. I will be at his side. May he be on his guard against Napoleon: he is two-faced, and when he wishes to make himself Pope as well as Emperor, God will soon draw back from him. He is the master-mind who, always wanting to ascend further, will fall on the sword he wished to use to force his people to be raised up.
          Italy will be punished for her ambition in wanting to shake off the yoke of the Lord of Lords. And so she will be left to fight a war; blood will flow on all sides. Churches will be locked up or desecrated. Priests and religious orders will be hunted down, and made to die a cruel death. Several will abandon the faith, and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion; among these people there will even be bishops.
          May the Pope guard against the performers of miracles. For the time has come when the most astonishing wonders will take place on the earth and in the air.
          In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell; they will put an end to faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God. They will blind them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a special grace, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of hell; several religious institutions will lose all faith and


will lose many souls.
          Evil books will be abundant on earth and the spirits of darkness will spread everywhere a universal slackening in all that concerns the service of God. They will have great power over Nature: there will be churches built to serve these spirits. People will be transported from one place to another by these evil spirits, even priests, for they will not have been guided by the good spirit of the Gospel which is a spirit of humility, charity and zeal for the glory of God. On occasions, the dead and the righteous will be brought back to life. …
          Everywhere there will be extraordinary wonders, as true faith has faded and false light brightens the people. Woe to the princes of the church who think only of piling riches upon riches to protect their authority and dominate with pride.
          The Vicar of my son will suffer a great deal, because for a while the Church will yield to large persecution, a time of darkness and the Church will witness a frightful crisis.
          The true faith to the Lord having been forgotten, each individual will want to be on his own and be superior to people of same identity, they will abolish civil rights as well as ecclesiastical, all order and all justice would be trampled underfoot and only homicides, hate, jealousy, lies and dissention would be seen without love for country or family.
          The Holy Father will suffer a great deal. I will be with him until the end and receive his sacrifice.
          The mischievous would attempt his life several times to do harm and shorten his days but neither him nor his successor will see the triumph of the Church of God.
          All the civil governments will have one and the same plan, which will be to abolish and do away with every religious principal, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and vice of all kinds.
          In the year 1865, there will be desecration of holy places. In convents, the flowers of the Church will decompose and the devil will make himself like the King of all hearts. May those in charge of religious communities be on their guard against the people they must receive, for the devil will resort to all his evil tricks to introduce sinners into religious orders, for disorders and the love of carnal pleasures will be spread all over the earth.
          France, Italy, Spain and England will be at war. Blood will flow in the streets. Frenchman will fight Frenchman, Italian will fight Italian. A general war will follow which will be appalling. For a time, God will cease to remember France and Italy because the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been forgotten. The wicked will make use of all their evil ways. Men will kill each other, massacre each other even in their homes.
          At the first blow of His thundering sword, the mountains and all nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens. Paris will burn and Marseille will be engulfed. Several cities will be shaken down and swallowed up by earthquakes. People will believe that all is lost. Nothing will be seen but murder, nothing will be heard but the clash of arms and blasphemy.
          The righteous will suffer greatly. Their prayers, their penances and their tears will rise up to heaven and all of God’s people will beg for forgiveness and mercy and will plead for my help and intercession. And then Jesus Christ, in an act of His justice and His great mercy will command His angels to have all His enemies put to death. Suddenly, the persecutors of the Church of Jesus Christ and all those given over to sin will perish and the earth will become desert-like. And then peace will be made, and man will be reconciled with God. Jesus Christ will be served, worshipped and glorified. Charity will flourish everywhere. The new kings will be the right arm of the


holy Church, which will be strong, humble, pious in It’s poor but fervent imitation of the virtues of Jesus Christ. The Gospel will be preached everywhere and mankind will make great progress in it’s faith, for there will be unity among the workers of Jesus Christ and man will live in fear of God.
          This peace among men will be short-lived. Twenty-five years of plentiful harvests will make them forget that the sins of men are the cause of all the troubles of this earth."

MESSAGE OF HEEDE, 1937, Heede, Germany
          "… The parish pastor of Heede says as follows:
          We possess unequivocal and irrefutable evidence about the truth of the apparitions of Jesus Christ. … the message of Heede:
          Humanity has not heeded My Blessed Mother, who appeared in Fatima, to exhort everyone to penitence. Now, I have come, in this last hour, to admonish the world. The times are grave. Men should do penance for their sins …
          I am near. The earth will tremble and will suffer. It will be terrible. A minor judgment. For those who are not in a state of grace it will be frightful. The angels of My justice are now scattered all over the world. Men do not listen to My calls. They close their ears, resist My graces and refuse My mercy, My love and My merits. They will agonize in the blindness of their faults. Hatred and greed fills the hearts of men. All this is the work of Satan. The world sleeps in a dense darkness.
          This generation deserves to be annihilated, but I desire to show Myself as merciful. Great and terrible things are being prepared. That which is about to happen will be terrible, like nothing ever seen since the beginning of the world.
          All those who have suffered, in these last times, are My martyrs and they prepare the newly converted of My Church. That which will shortly happen, will greatly surpass everything that has ever happened until now. The Mother of God and the angels will intervene. Hell will believe that victory is theirs, but I will seize it from them. Many blaspheme Me and, because of this, I shall allow all kinds of misfortunes to rain upon the earth for, through this, many will be saved. Blessed are those who suffer everything in reparation for those who offend Me.
          My beloved children the hour is near. Pray incessantly and you will not be confounded. I unite My elect. They will come together, at the same time, from all parts of the world and they will glorify Me.
          I come. Blessed are those who will be prepared. Blessed are those who hear me."

(this Message was reproduced with the Imprimatur of the Bishop of Cadiz-Cueta in 1959)
          "Listen well to what I tell you and announce it to everyone. My heart is saddened by the many afflictions which threaten the world. The justice of our Heavenly Father is gravely offended.
          Men continue to live willfully in their sins. The wrath of God is near at hand. The world will be visited by great misfortunes, by bloody revolutions, by terrible hurricanes and floods of rivers and seas.
          Raise your voice until the priests of God heed My messages and advise men that the time is near and if they do not convert and return to God through prayers and sacrifices, the world will be involved in a new war. The dictators, of the world, infernal creatures, will destroy the churches, profane the Holy Eucharist and destroy the most cherished and holy things.
          In that new pitiless war, much that men have constructed will be


destroyed. Clouds with lightning rays of fire and a tempest of fire will pass over the whole world and the punishment will be the most terrible ever known in the history of mankind. It will last 70 hours. The wicked will be crushed and eliminated. Many will be lost because they stubbornly remained in their sins. Then they will feel the force of light over darkness. The hours of darkness are near.
          I am bending over the world and detain the justice of God, otherwise, these things would have already happened. Prayer and sacrifices are needed. Men must return to God and to My Immaculate heart, Mediator for men, then, at least, part of the world will be saved.
          Speak out loudly. Propagate these words everywhere as a true echo of My voice. Make them known because it will help to save many souls and impede much destruction of the Church and the world."

          Events she predicted:
          Our Lord announced to her that "after the purification of the world and the Church and the uprooting of all of the bad weeds," He would prepare a renewal, a miraculous triumph of His mercy, adding: "My all-powerful hand will once again put order wherever human force is impotent."
          Then He added: "God will send two punishments, one in the form of wars, revolutions and dangers originating on earth, the other will be sent from heaven. There will come upon the earth an inner darkness that will last three days and three nights. Nothing will be visible and the air will be pestilent and foul and will harm, although not exclusively, the enemies of religion.
          During the three days of darkness artificial light will fail, only blessed candles will burn. During those days of darkness the faithful should remain in their houses, praying the Holy Rosary and asking God for mercy.
          All the enemies of the Church, known and unknown, will perish all over the world during the universal darkness, with the exception of a few who will be converted. St. Peter and St. Paul will intervene in the election of a new Pope." (This is part of the beatification documentation.)
          Finally, in a vision she had: "I saw the earth enveloped in flames, many buildings crumbling, the earth and heaven seemed to be in agony."
          "Millions of men will die by steel, some in war, others in civil strife; other millions will perish in an unforeseen death. After this trial there will be a universal rebirth. This change will happen when the Church will seem to have lost all human means to defend itself in the persecution."

          "… In the chastisement … God permitted the powers of darkness to abandon their infernal abyss. A legion of demons were dispersed over the world and, as emissaries of divine justice, they destroyed houses and palaces, wiped out villages, cities and even whole provinces and gave a cruel death to a multitude of the rebellious. The servant of God saw all those monsters, depicted in the most horrible figures, spurt forth from infernal caverns and raze all the places where God had been most gravely offended and where sacrileges had been committed. Not a trace of them was left.
          In 1821, she heard Our Lord speak of the triumph of the Church, for it would come out of those storms renovated and it would be recognized universally by all the people, giving the Church a new Pastor, full of His Spirit and animated by His zeal who would guide His flock and would send out zealous and holy priests."


          "I saw the Church of St. Peter and an enormous multitude of people working to demolish it. At the same time I saw others repairing the Church. The demolishers took away large pieces; they were, above all, sectarians and apostates, in the majority. In their destructive work these people seemed to follow certain orders and a certain rule. I saw, with horror, that among them there were Catholic priests. I saw the Pope praying, surrounded by false friends who, frequently, did the contrary of what he had ordered."
          … She also said: ‘Fifty or sixty years before the year 2000 Satan will be unchained for a time.’
          Later she saw the Church of St. Peter with its high copula. St. Michael was on top, resplendent, dressed in a robe red as blood and a large banner of war in his hand. In violent battles, accompanied by bands of celestial spirits, he had to defend the Church against the assaults of the world. The Wounds of Christ shown splendidly from the heavens. It was as if she, the stigmatic of Christ, wanted to give a grand idea of the importance of Christ’s Wounds in the history of the Redemption. She said: …‘In the most terrible moment of the battle there will descend, to the battlefield, to the side of the "good" the angels who will multiply the forces of the combatants. A marvelous courage will inflame the ardour of everyone. St. Michael himself will wound the enemies, followed instantly by a general overthrow of these enemies. A sword of fire will then appear above the heads of the triumphant good.’
          ‘When the battle finished upon the earth and the Church, the angel became white and luminous, then disappeared. The Cross, too, disappeared and there was seen in its place, above the Church, a Woman, tall and resplendent, who extended her radiant cape of gold over it. In the Church, acts of reconciliation were observed accompanied by acts of humility. The sects recognized the Church, in her admirable victory and in the light of the revelations which were seen to shine over the Church.
          I felt a splendor and a superior life in all Nature and in all men a holy emotion, as if the birth of the Lord were near and I felt, in such a way, the coming of the reign that I saw myself forced to run to meet it shouting cries of joy."

          This woman was the oldest stigmatic of modern times. … Born on February 12th, 1850, she died in 1941 at the age of ninety one.
          … She had, to a high degree, the gift of prophecy which was principally manifested in her visions about the last times and the coming of the Antichrist.
          She said: "There will come three days of great darkness." During those days only blessed candles of pure beeswax would give light in the horrible darkness. A single candle would burn for the three days, but in the houses of the wicked they would not burn. During those days demons would appear, in horrible and abominable shapes, and would make the air resound with frightful blasphemies. Lightning and sparks would penetrate the houses, however, the winds, storms and earthquakes would not put out the light of the blessed candles.
          A cloud, red as blood, would cross the sky, a clap of thunder would make the earth tremble. The world would become an immense cemetery. The bodies of the wicked and the good would cover the earth. The hunger that would follow would be terrible. All of the vegetation would be destroyed as well as three fourths of the human race. The crisis will come to everyone, suddenly, and the chastisement would be worldwide."


          "The year 2000 will not pass before the judgment comes, as I have seen it in the divine light."

The source of the following prophecy is taken from The National Educator, September, 1986.
          "Prophecy of St. Nilus, A 5th Century Hermit – After the year 1900, toward the middle of the 20th century, the people of that time will become unrecognizable. When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, people’s minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger. Then the world will become unrecognizable. People’s appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to the shamelessness in dress and style of hair. These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the Antichrist. There will be no respect for parents and elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the right-hand way from the left.
          … At that future time, due to the power of such great crimes and licentiousness, people will be deprived of the grace of the Holy Spirit, which they received in Holy Baptism and equally of remorse.
          The Churches of God will be deprived of God-fearing and pious pastors, and woe to the Christians remaining in the world at that time; they will completely lose their faith because they will lack the opportunity of seeing the light of knowledge from anyone at all. … At that time men will also fly through the air like birds and descend to the bottom of the sea like fish. …
          Then the All-good God will see the downfall of the human race and will shorten the days for the sake of those few who are being saved, because the enemy wants to lead even the chosen into temptation, if that is possible… then the sword of chastisement will suddenly appear and kill the perverter and his servants."

          "Father, if so many prophecies of good repute were given to the Church, wouldn’t all good Catholics have believed?"
          Most laity and clergy were not interested in such matters, because they were caught up in the pride of being citizens of the modern age, and they did not hear much about private revelation because their publication was suppressed or ignored by the worldly-wise clergy. And, most did not understand their obligation to search out the revelation of God and to test the spirits, that is, to investigate for themselves and make a personal decision about such things and then to act upon it. Many, too, did not understand the reason why God gives us these revelations. Let us read:

          "The purpose of private revelation, as defined by St. Thomas Aquinas, is not to prove the truth of Christian doctrine or add anything to it but to offer men of a certain period and because of the circumstances of that period, a direction for human action."
          "May we remind you that according to the doctrine of the Fifth Lateran Council and Pope Leo X (1512): ‘When there is a question of prophetic revelation the Pope alone is the judge.’
          Pope Urban VIII says in cases like this – it is better to believe than not to believe, for if you believe and it is proven true, you will be happy that you believed because Our Holy Mother asked it: If you believe and it should be proven false you will still receive all blessings


as if it has been true because you believed it to be true.
          Tanquerey, a recognized theologian and one of the most eminent, cites the following in his textbook for seminarians, not as an opinion, but as the teaching of the Church: ‘Private revelations which are certain must be believed by those to whom they are made, or by those for whose benefit they are made, and even most probably by those to whom they are not directed, provided they are supported by sufficient arguments. For we must believe what we know for certain has been revealed by God, because of the respect due to the authority of God; but when revelation, even private, is presented to us with sufficient arguments, for example, miracles, we know with certainty that it has been revealed by God.’
          The Rosary, the Brown Scapular and the Green Scapular were given to us through Private Revelations, likewise the Devotions to the Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
          The following are the words spoken from the throne of the Basilica Of Saint Martin and were published in a pamphlet shortly afterwards. They Were spoken by His Excellency, the Bishop of Liege, Belgium, regarding The apparitions of the Most Holy Virgin at Banneaux from January 15 to March 3, 1933.
          "Regarding this event," His Excellency said, "I should like to warn you against a twofold indifference: Indifference toward the fact itself and indifference towards our personal share in the recognition of the fact."
          1.  Let us not be indifferent to the fact: "Does not everything merit our interest that is of such a nature as to quicken faith, enliven piety, increase confidence, convert and save souls? … Faith teaches us that the Blessed Virgin is in Heaven, that she reigns there in glory, and that she nevertheless interests herself efficaciously in her children on earth. But if she comes to visit these children, appearing to one or to several of them … is that not a sensible proof of the compliant goodness and the motherly care of our Mother in Heaven? Such news certainly does not leave me indifferent, and anyone who has a filial love for the Blessed Virgin must share my emotion. And undoubtedly, one of the first effects of this emotion will be the desire to know these facts better, to examine them thoroughly, and to contribute as much as we can to bring them to light.
          2.  Let us not be indifferent to the recognition of the fact: "Here we meet with the second of the indifferences denounced above, the attitude of: It’s up to the Church to bring these facts to light. Let the Church do it. In the meantime, I’ll not make it my concern. Yes, it’s up to the religious authority to give an authentic decision to such facts, if it judges a decision to be opportune. Suppose your unanimous desire is realized and the tribunal ‘approves’ … don’t you see the great effect of that sentence? It would be a source of great joy for millions of the faithful: It would put an end to the doubts of many; it would give a new and lasting impetus to the cult of the Blessed Virgin … but that is still in the future. Must we simply wait for it with our arms folded? Certainly not! In the first place, it is not necessary for us to have an authentic judgment of the Church in order to admit the truth of the apparitions. We can accept them either on the basis of a personal study of the facts themselves, of their development and their effects; or on the authority of persons whose knowledge, prudence and piety we know, or on the basis of special favours which we might have received. … This personal conviction may be expressed in private acts of piety. Do not forget that the important, final decision must be pronounced by men."

          "Father, was the Third Secret of Fatima ever known?"


          It was known verbatim by very few. The actual words of Our Lady were apparently "dropped into a deep hole" by the agents of Satan within the Vatican Curia. But, as one of our tabloids explained:

          "The Third Secret has not been officially revealed to the world. But Frere Michal, in 1985, published Volume III of his 600-page book, which is entirely about the Third Secret of Fatima. He says that since "a certain number of facts have become know" about the Secret they form "an impressive mass of sure information from which the historian can precisely retrace its entire history and expose its essential content with a considerable degree of certitude.
          This eminent living authority on the Third Secret concludes that it undoubtedly concerns a grave crisis of faith within the Church and the spiritual chastisement this will entail. This was also (and first) the published conclusions of the official archivist of Fatima, Fr. Alonso. And Bishop Amaral of Fatima publicly confirmed these conclusions on his own after speaking with Lucy.
          It is known that the Third Secret begins with the words, "In Portugal, the dogma of the faith will always be preserved, etc." The rest of the Third Secret is "contained" in this "etc." which must go on something like this: "… but in the rest of the world …" (See "The Fatima Crusader," Issue 20: RD 1, Box 258, Constable, NY 12926)
          Confirming these conclusions we have the evidence of heresy and all manner of distortions in the Church today, as well as the words of Pope Paul VI himself, when he stated publicly: "The smoke of Satan has entered the Church." This great tragedy for the world and for souls has now been revealed by Jesus and Mary through their current apparitions at the Vatican Pavilion Grounds in Bayside, NY:
          "I say this evening as your God that on that date as promised at Fatima (1972, through Jacinta) Satan entered my Church upon earth. He brought with him his agents. And Satan, himself, the deceiver of all mankind, sat in on Vatican II and maneuvered all the outsiders to come in and distort my doctrines and distort the truth. At Fatima my Mother tried to warn of this coming event. But who cared to listen. … To this day, to your earth year of 1986, you have not been given, my children, the full secrets as given to the children at Fatima. Therefore, I must make it known at this time to you. If you are perceiving and interested in My Church upon earth, I do not have to explain myself too fully; for you will already know of the chaos that Satan has wrought when he entered My Church. …
          My child and my children, I come once more with an urgent and pleading message to the hierarchy in the Church, My Church upon earth: I want you to know now that we look upon you and find many that do not fall into grace. They are falling out of grace and misleading many of Our sheep. Therefore, I warn you now as your God, you will stop your intricacies within My Church. You will stop experimenting. I gave you the rules to follow many years ago – two thousand years, approximately. And why now 2000 years later do you deem it necessary to change my Church upon earth. I your God say to you, you will be judged accordingly. You will return My Church to its former glory, and in that manner you will have more vocations and more entering the seminaries and not fleeing from them as they hear the heresies and all other innovations that are going on within My Church."

          "Father, is this what Our Lady meant when she said at La Salette in 1846 that "Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of Antichrist?"


          What she referred to is still in the future, Son. But it was true in a general sense, as I will explain. The enemy was encamped around the Holy Father in the years before the Great Chastisement. They entered in 1972, holding Pope Paul VI prisoner and drugging him from 1975 until his death in 1978.

LA SALETTE- September 19, 1846: Our Lady: "The Vicar of My Son will suffer a great deal, because for a while the Church will yield to great PERSECUTION, a time of darkness, and the Church will witness a frightful crisis."

FATIMA – 1917: "There will also come a time of the hardest trials for the Church. Cardinals will be against Cardinals, and Bishops against Bishops. Satan will put himself in their midst. What is rotten will fall, and what will fall must not be maintained. The Church will be darkened and the world plunged into confusion."

          Canon Law 2335 decrees automatic excommunication for either clergy or laity for joining a Masonic Order. This act, if unrepented, condemns a soul to Hell. Why then did so many Masons infiltrate the Vatican and change centuries of traditions?
          The list of Masons below, with their entrance dates, appeared on the front page of the Puglia Gazette on July 26, 1976. Puglia is near Milan, Italy, which is considered a Communist stronghold.
          Cardinal Danielou had announced that he would reveal a list of Masons. He was found dead four days later. The newspaper published the List nonetheless.
          The Catholic Church was taken over by Mason infiltration in 1972. The troika of this unholy clique was led by Cardinal Giovanni Benelli, the Under Secretariat of State, Cardinal Villot and Cardinal Casaroli, who is the Present Secretary of State. Pope Paul VI was drugged and kept prisoner in The Vatican while an Italian actor appeared in the Pope’s place. Numerous photographs, including these from the book Shepherds Are Lost, attest to the fact that there was an impostor.

Pope Paul VI Impostor
Pope Paul VI before 1972: Long, straight nose - almost to end of ear lobe. Ear is full and round. The Impostor: Nose is shorter and more round - reaching only 3/4 length of ear. Ear is longer and not as wide.
Pope Paul VI Impostor
Pope Paul VI: Long nose - reaching to the end of ear lobe. The Impostor: Nose much shorter in comparison to ear.

          Below is a partial list of Masons who gained power in Rome:

Cardinal Jean Villot 8-8-66 Secretariat of State; usurped Pope Paul VI’s power.
Cardinal Agostino Casaroli 9-28-57 Present Secretariat of State.
Cardinal leo Suenens 6-15-67 Promoter of Charismatics.
Cardinal Ugo Poletti 2-17-69 Vicar General of Diocese of Rome.
Rev. Pasquale Machhi 4-23-58 Personal Secretary to Pope Paul VI. Excommunicated by Paul VI; but later reinstated by Cardinal Villot.
Rev. Sebastiano Baggio 8-14-57 Picked bishops for dioceses of entire world.
Rev. Levi Virgilio 7-4-58 Vatican radio and L’Osservatore Romano Press.
Rev. Virgilio Noe 4-3-61 Secretary of Liturgy Congregation-Destroyed Latin Mass.
Rev. Annibale Bugnini 8-15-59 Novus ordo Mass creator; assisted by 6 Protestant ministers and 1 Jewish theologian.
Cardinal Augustin Bea ---- A convert from Judaism, he compromised Catholic Dogma, under the guise of ecumenism, to please Protestant and Jewish peoples.
Rev. Pio Laghi 8-24-69 Apostolic Delegate to U.S.: Chooses U.S. Catholic Bishops, Masonic number 0-538. Secret Masonic name is "Lapi."
Cardinal Achille Lienart 10-15-12 Leader and recruiter of clergy into Freemasonry.
Rev. Paul Marcinkus 8-21-67 Involved in Vatican Bank loss of millions to Masonic controlled Banks. Masonic number 43-649; Masonic name is "Gorilla."

          There is a list of 130 high ranking clergy enrolled in Freemasonry. Most have a secret name and number. The Masons are largely responsible for the destruction of the Church from within. According to the apparitions of Our Lady at Bayside, New York, Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI were "laid low" by the enemies of God, and Pope John Paul I "received the horror and martyrdom by drinking from a glass … given to him by a now deceased


member of the Clergy and the Secretariat of the State." Cardinal Jean Villot was the Secretariat of State during John Paul I’s pontificate.

          "Were there Masonic clergy in other countries besides Italy, Father?"
          Yes, and these clergy were headed by the papal delegate for that country, who was a Mason appointed by Masons in the Curia. Let me read again:

          "He is the Most Reverend Pio Laghi in Washington, D.C His Masonic number is 0-538. His secret Masonic name is Lapi. He entered Freemasonry 8/24/69, which means he was automatically excommunicated (Canon Law 2335) from the Church – yet he currently chooses her U.S.Bishops! The Pope almost always follows the Apostolic Delegate’s recommendations for the choice of Bishops.
          What are the fruits of the Bishops chosen by the Masonic
Apostolic Delegate?
-- Destroyed or removed the altar of Sacrifice.
-- Removed statues of Angels and Saints.
-- Removed Stations of the Cross.
-- Removed altar-rails.
-- Ignored the pope and Catholic Church Doctrines.
-- Suppressed Novenas, organ music, Gregorian Chant, the Rosary, the Scapular, Apparitions, Sacramentals, Blessings and Indulgences.
-- Lessened reverence to Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
-- Replaced the Church Doctrines on sin and Confession with the fallacy that God is Love and does not punish. There is no hell of Purgatory in their new religion of man.

          If Pio Laghi is not a Mason, why does he choose Bishops who have made a shambles of the Church in such a short time? The fact is, the Most Rev. Pio Laghi is a Mason and has done his Masonic task well. He is gradually destroying the Catholic Church in the United States.

          "Didn’t you say once, Father, that an Ecumenical Council in union with the Pope is infallible?"
          Yes, and Vatican II was infallible in its actual documents, properly interpreted. But the potential for ambiguous interpretations had been crafted by the enemy into certain documents by certain phrases, thus providing the means for heretical applications by the Vatican Commissions at a later date which implemented the Council. The current head of the most important Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Ratzinger, realized what had happened, as evidenced in this interview with him:

          "… Developments since the Council seem to be in striking contrast to the expectations of all, beginning with those of John XXIII and Paul VI. … What the Popes and the Council Fathers were expecting was a new Catholic unity, and instead one has encountered a dissension which – to use the words of Paul VI – seems to have passed over from self-criticism to self-destruction. … There had been the expectation of a step forward, and instead one found oneself facing a progressive process of decadence that to a large measure has been unfolding under the sign of a summons to a presumed ‘spirit of the Council’ and by so doing has actually and increasingly discredited it.
          … It must be clearly stated that a real reform of the Church presupposes an unequivocal turning away from the erroneous paths whose catastrophic consequences are already incontestable.


          … Vatican II in its official promulgations, in its authentic documents, cannot be held responsible for this development which, on the contrary, radically contradicts both the letter and the spirit of the Council Fathers."

          I know what we can read to give you the inside story on this invasion of the Church, Phillip. Hand me the light brown satchel.


Adapted from the French by Yves Dupont

          This is the story of a man who wrote his memoirs, about which he had had dreams for many nights until it had become an obsession. He yielded to the urge to write them though not understanding why. "Anyway, it does not matter", he ruminated, "for no one will ever read this; I shall destroy it in due course."
          This man was a Communist agent who became a Catholic priest to better destroy the Church. He was ordained in the early forties, died in the late sixties, and his confessions survived him. He had overlooked one very important fact, however, that no man is master of his own life. He died in a hospital as a result of a car accident. His papers were found in his briefcase, and read by the Catholic nurse who looked after him.
          … "I was fully confident now that I would eventually enter the seminary, and I was already making plans for the future especially as regards my work for the Party. I was to inject into Catholic thinking a whole set of new values and a new train of thought. I was to foster remorse in their hearts, a gnawing sense of guilt, quoting the Gospel: ‘Be ONE as the Father and I are ONE.’ That sense of guilt must grow into an obsession to the point of rehabilitating Martin Luther. They will be made to believe that schisms and heresies were caused by their own intransigence, that the time had come for them to atone and make reparation by throwing their arms open to their Protestant brethren and confessing their own sin of pride and stubbornness. of course, we shall not tamper with the Creed except for the word "Catholic" which must be changed to "Universal" or "Christian" as the Protestants use. But we shall not use the name of God except when necessary. We shall speak of man, stress his dignity and nobility. We must transform the language and thinking pattern of every Catholic. We must foster the mystique of the human race. At first, we shall say that God exists, but we shall point out that God remains forever outside the field of human experience, and experience is what counts for sensate beings. We shall lay much stress on experience and sensory perceptions. The positive, the experimental and the sensorial must be the basis of the new thinking. We shall say that, since God is invisible, the best way to serve Him is to set up a universal Church in which all men can meet as brothers in mutual good-will, love, and understanding. This new mystique must finally obfuscate the concept of God or whom we shall speak less and less, except for saying that we are God because God is in everyone of us. In this manner, we shall re-direct the religious yearnings and superstitions of the people. We shall deify Man …"
          "Once Catholics have accepted this new mystique, we shall tell them to strip their churches bare of statues and ornaments because these things are unessential and abhorrent to their dear Protestant and Jewish brethren. Thus all symbols of Catholic worship and devotion will go by the board, and when they are gone devotions will go too. Yes, we shall promote an iconoclastic zeal especially among the younger generation. They themselves will destroy that jumble of statues, pictures, vestments, reliquaries, organs, etc. It would be a good idea, too, to spread a "prophecy" that says: "You shall see married priests, and you shall hear the Mass in the language of the people." This should make


our task easier. We shall incite women to assert their right to the priesthood.
          "All sorts of exciting ideas came surging into my head, and I coded my whole programme before sending it to Moscow. Looking back on these days, I now feel a legitimate pride at having been the first to suggest these ideas to the Party. It is now plain that these were the right ideas, far superior to a mere dialectical attempt at destroying religious belief. Some time later, an order came from Moscow: "New assignment: go to Rome." And so I left Poland for what was going to be my lifetime work …"
          "Once in Rome I met a priest-professor who was in our network. He was a scholar and a scriptural expert. He was then busy preparing a new English version of the Bible, but his work was still secret. In that new version the old cliches about the Virginity of Mary, the Real Presence and like fables were to be adroitly amended and re-interpreted. Instead of "Virgin", Mary will be called "maid". The "brethren" of Jesus will become His "brothers". The "Real Presence" will be explained as a feeling, or experience, when "Christians are gathered together in His name". The notion of "gathering" is an important one to promote the community spirit. Those who do not conform to the Group will be reproved as trouble-makers and bad Christians. We must absolutely stifle individual attitudes if we are to control the Group as we please, and the control of the Group is essential for the establishment of Communism.
          … Later, of course, the mass will be radically modified; we shall play down the sacrificial aspect, we shall exalt it as a meal taken by the Community. In case some reactionary priests refuse to conform, and insist on saying the old prayers, we shall direct that the Canon in its entirety be said aloud. This will also make it possible for the people to say the words with the priests, and once this is possible we shall rule that it is indispensable also. Thus the Mass will cease to be the privilege of the priest alone …"
          "The professor was already working on a draft for a New Order of the Mass, and he urged me to do likewise because, he said, it was greatly desirable that we should give the people different kinds of Masses; this will help destroy unity, the mainstay of Catholic power. …"
          "The merging of all religions and the brotherhood of man, must always be re-asserted as the basic motivation for all the changes. "Love thy neighbor as thyself" will be our scriptural justification. The greatest change, and the most desirable one, is the suppression of the papacy; but this appeared very difficult to me in view of Christ’s promise: "Thou art the Rock, and upon this Rock I shall build My Church." We shall therefore endeavour to undermine the authority of the pope in every possible way, and we shall try to enlist his cooperation to introduce the changes that will make this possible. We shall promote the concept of Episcopal Equality and the priesthood of the laity. When the bishops are elected by the people, and the pope is no more than the president of the bishops, our victory will be near at hand. …"
          "All must be done in the name of love. Also in the name of love, we shall promote the idea that God is far too loving to want His only Son to die a cruel death for us and to want to create an everlasting hell. Christ will be described as a good man and great revolutionary, and hell as a superstitution of the Dark Ages. We shall no longer mention sin, and Angels will be relegated to the realm of mythology and fairy-tales. Once the people cease to fear God, they will soon forget Him. Our task is to promote these ideas among the Catholic elite via the theological journals which we control, and they in turn will promote them in the Church as their own ideas. We shall also encourage many new translations of the Bible; the greater the number of translations, the better; it will help to create confusion. The number of Catholic scholars who are itching to produce their own versions – undoubtedly the best ever produced in their own eyes – is not lacking; all they need is a little prodding from us.


We are faced with a huge task; many problems remain to be solved: the Rosary, Lourdes, and the twenty odd feasts of Mary are annoying things, but we shall be patient. In any case, we will have to draw up a new calendar and dispose of many Marian feasts as well as many other Saints. The new calendar must look as bare as the table on which they will say the new Mass …"
          "Such is the substance of the orders which I issued to the network. The following year I began to work on the draft of a new catechism which would be acceptable to all believers. It must be practical, human, noncommittal, and ambiguous. It must stress the humanity of Christ who, in fact, was a brother of ours. But the word "charity" is to be banished absolutely; we shall say "love" instead. Love can be many things, but charity has an intolerable religious connotation. We shall say, of course, that it means the same and the change is more conformable to modern usage. Concerning the precepts of the Church, we shall say that Christians are now fully mature and adult, that the precepts were necessary when the people were ignorant and uneducated, but that it is more fitting to adult Christians to let their own consciences decide. God, in any case, is far too great and remote to worry about our eating meat on Fridays! …"
          "Private confession is a waste of time; we shall promote a communal penitential rite with emphasis on sins committed against our brothers. The precept of Sunday attendance will be modified too. We shall say that, because of the working conditions in this modern age, people need their Sunday to relax in the countryside away from the city’s fumes. They should be allowed to attend Mass on Saturday, even on Friday. God did not say what day was to be reserved. In all cases we shall stress the primacy of the individual conscience over set rules and petty precepts which are unworthy of an adult man and an insult to his dignity. We shall retain the "Our Father" for the time being, but we shall replace "Thee" by "You" and we shall find suitable substitutes for such words as "forgive, temptations, trespasses" and other similar nonsense. The seven sacraments will receive our special attention. The first I would like to abolish is baptism, but it will have to stay for a while; we shall say that Original Sin is not the sin of Adam and Eve who, in any case, never existed; we shall re-interpret it. Baptism, then, will merely be a ceremony marking the coming of a new member into the human brotherhood. We shall do likewise with every sacrament. Concerning marriage, it shall not be refused to those priests who wish to receive it …"
          "In the Mass, the words "Real Presence" and "Transubstantiation" must be deleted. We shall speak of "Meal" and "Eucharist" instead. We shall destroy the Offertory and play down the Consecration and, at the same time, we shall stress the part played by the people. In the Mass, as it is today, the priest turns his back to the people and fills a sacrificial function which is intolerable. He appears to offer his Mass to the great Crucifix hanging over the ornate altar. We shall pull down the Crucifix, substitute a table for the altar, and turn it around so that the priest may assume a presidential function. The priest will speak to the people much more than before: to achieve this, we shall shorten what is now called the Mass proper, and we shall add many readings to what is called the Foremass. In this manner the Mass will gradually cease to be regarded as an act of adoration to God, and will become a gathering and an act of human brotherhood. All these points will have to be elaborated in great detail and they may take anywhere up to 30 years before they are implemented, but I think that all my objectives will be fulfilled by 1974. …"
          "Thus I laboured for twenty long years. Pius XII died in 1958. When John XXIII announced a new council, my interest was greatly stimulated. I reported to my chiefs that this was perhaps the last battle: no effort should be spared. They were obviously of the same opinion because they immediately


appointed me to the highest position in the West European network, and they gave me unlimited financial backing through our Bank in Switzerland. Hearing that Pope John had appointed a commission to draw the schemas of the forthcoming Council, I immediately started to work on counter-schemas with the help of avant-garde theologians who had been won over to our way of thinking. Thanks to my contacts I managed to obtain copies of the projected papal schemas: they were terrible! I was in a cold sweat! If these schemas are carried, my work of 20 years will have been in vain. I hastily put the finishing touch to my counter-schemas, and I circulated them. Eventually, they were tabled in the Council. Thanks to the cooperation of some bishops whose thinking had been conditioned previously, the majority of bishops, reactionary but ill-prepared, were completely disconcerted by the highly efficient and coherent interventions of our friends; most of my counterschemas were carried…"
          "But I am not satisfied: many of my schemas, although they were accepted, have been watered down by Pope Paul himself in contempt of the majority vote at the Council. Fortunately, the revised versions contain many ambiguities; in this manner, it will be possible to initiate further changes, alleging that they are in the spirit of the Council. However, we must begin to work for Vatican III even now. Vatican III, as I see it, will mean the destruction of the Church and the death of God … Then, I shall come forward, not to nail Christ upon His Cross, but God Himself into His coffin."

          This perfidity all seems to come from a human origin, doesn’t it, Phillip? But who is guiding this human work? The full Apocalyptic horror of these events must not be lost sight of. The world will not last forever. All these events we are highlighting, from beginning to end, affect the eternal destiny of billions of souls. Time swiftly marches on. Our end is always near.
          A holy mystic of the 20th Century, Professor Drexel, can give us insight into this drama.

to Professor Drexel, Austria 1922-1977.

          (In 1932 Professor Drexel had a private audience with Pope Pius XI. He taught as professor in the Vatican University for Missions and was later used as an expert in racial questions at the Vatican.)
          "For the first time in November 1922 and from then on in all the nights of the first Fridays of the month, Our Lord appeared and spoke to our deceased friend, who spent those nights in prayer.
          The phrase which was selected as the title of the book are the words of the Savior, and they may solve the painful conflict between faith and obedience under which many priests and faithful suffer today: Nobody can claim authority in his office, and demand obedience in the name of the Church, when the faith of the Church is lessened or destroyed!
          Whether unbelief and its practice is dictated by the interior or exterior enemies of the Church – the clear teaching of the Acts of the Apostles is still valid: "We must obey God rather than men." (Acts 5, 19)
          "Severe trials are trying My Church. But I shall strengthen My visible representative in Rome, and I shall arm him with wisdom and firmness, even against bishops.
          Not only priests, but also bishops, come under the influence of the spirit of the time, by neglect and violation of their duties; they even try to usurp similar power which belongs only to the successor of the holy Apostle Peter. Therefore, it is necessary that men and women fight and pray indefatigably and imperturbably, defending and clinging to the faith, making sacrifices, and maintaining in this way hope, trust and confidence among


the faithful and in the people. Did I not praise the blessed ones, who suffer persecution for the sake of justice? (Mt. 5,10) Have I not said: He who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in Heaven? (Mt. 10, 32) But the greatest pain to My Heart was given by those Who should be shepherding the faithful – and these are the bishops, who Have become silent, indifferent and cowardly. Not only a few, but many of Them, are afraid of men, and are removed from the fear of God. Tthis is the reason why the wolves could break into the flock, bringing such confusion and devastation and destruction upon the Church.
          Therefore, do not let yourselves be oppressed by the apostasy and heresy of many. All those will crumble in their own sin, and becoming unhappy in their inner soul, they will come back to Me – or perish eternally.
          … In the bosom of My Church, My own sons, the consecrated priests, have rebelled and have become not only enemies, but also traitors, as My Vicar of Rome has openly remarked.
          These disloyal priests have left the path of the faith and have put human pride in place of the revelation of God; they have replaced it with the wicked misuse of the gifts of freedom and the thought and structure of their own spirit, that they may be praised and loved by the world.
          Oh what fools they are, who not only sell their own soul to Satan, but who become seducers of the faithful and thus sin against the Holy Ghost. These confusers and seducers speak and write much about a new Church, of a church that is no longer a religion, but is purely human. I Tell you: This is the church of Antichrist.
          In this new church grace does not count, but in its place steps so-called technology, that is the dream and fake opinion and falsehood of a new world. In this new church their prophets do not speak any more of sin and judgment, of hell and Heaven, but of the coming Paradise on earth.
          In this new church one can no longer find the cross of My redemption which is salvation, but their happiness lies in sensuality.
          This new church is the living Antichrist, the real Babylonian harlot, as My disciple and apostle John has written in the Apocalypse."

          Jesus and Mary may have appeared in almost every nation of the world, including Russia. The agony of love, the urgency of their voices is almost too much to bear sometimes. Listen to their voices through their seer in Mexico:

Imprimi Potest – Sac. J. Gaudze, Superior M.F.

          FIRST MESSAGE, Monday, March 24, 1969: "These two things shall not be attained until later. That is to say, the peace of the world and the unification of My church shall not be achieved until I come once more among men. Not until I return once again to teach them of what spirit they all should be … do you understand?
          "For this same reason, do not expect these two things to be achieved by accepting any propositions or arrangements which may be suggested to you, soliciting your collaboration with those who are outside My Church. Yield no acceptance whatsoever! Accept none of their suggestions! Because all of those who approach you to propose alliances of progress and prosperity, are either in error or incited (impelled) by the evil spirit. The spirit of evil prods them on.
          "All of you have permitted My enemy to enter My Church. THE BARK OF PETER flounders on the sea of human life. It may seem as though I am asleep. But it is not so … I am not asleep. On the contrary, I keep constant watch over My Beloved Spouse (the


Church) to whom I have promised Eternal Life. My Church can achieve its mission completely either with few souls or with many. This is so because I do not seek My own glory which I already possess Eternally; and of which no one can deprive Me. But, it is you … you human beings … whom I desire to save from the snares of the devil.
          "Before the time of the harvest arrives, I order, I command that you do two things: see to it that the modern Masses shall immediately cease; and, return to the Canon decreed in the Council of Trent by Pius V.
          "Return to the primitive fountains of the Church. Restore the Christian and religious customs among seculars and religious, and repent, all of you who belong to the Hierarchy of My Church! All of you who have apostasized and have become traitors, repent and retrace your steps to the right way! And, of course, this must be done immediately!
          "To come to Me is to confess humbly that MY DOCTRINE IS HOLY AND THAT IT DOES NOT NEED REFORMS, that My Church is divine, and that all must come to her bosom if they wish to be saved eternally. It means to confess her royal dignity which shines through Me, from Peter to My present Vicar, my much loved Paul VI.
          "They must obey him! Let them not pressure him, nor exact from him reforms for My Church!
          "My Church is holy and I remain permanently in her, even though there should remain in her only one single man who would know how to observe My doctrine purely and completely. My Church has rules of life to which all of you must subject yourselves in humble submission.
          "Demagogy, astuteness, error and falsehood are contained in all the so-called sociological techniques proposed by the innovators, who are fighting to supplant My doctrine and My Church.
          "All of these are brimming over with satanic evil, the evil which the spirit of satan has infiltrated into them. Because I love you I reveal the truth to all of you. This is to help you to liberate yourselves from the demon. However, if they persist in their obstinacy in allowing themselves to be carried away by the craftiness of the demon, because he coddles their passions, I will let them fall very soon! Because, all who attempt to surpass their God will be cast down to the infernal abyss, where falsehood and dissolution reign and where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth for all eternity.
          "But now, I still invite all: Come to me, all of you!"

          THE MARIAN MESSAGE: "Both He and I desire that all of you should fight even as Michael and his angels are fighting at present, against your enemies, who are the fallen angels. For, according to the divine plan, they have been granted the permission to try human beings. Therefore, you, my children, MUST ALSO FIGHT, while withdrawing yourselves from DECEITFUL PASTORS AND FALSE PROPHETS.
          "Insist, my daughter, in telling women that they must be modest, and they must cast aside indecency in dress, in customs, in words, and in their thoughts. On the contrary, if they should act otherwise, on the last day I shall not be able to obtain for them the grace of repentance. But at the present time, certainly they will obtain it if they listen to my words and obey my Son and His Vicar."
          JESUS: "… And the definitions which have been (decreed) from other centuries and which have been approved must not be abrogated nor changed. Let Paul VI speak the truth to the face of the world and let him confess that they have pressured him and obligated him into many present-day definitions which he in his heart has not accepted.


          "… Paul VI suffers! Do not leave him alone in his prison. Go in search of him! Take him out of there to a safe place where he may be able to speak freely, according to the motion and light of My Spirit. Then you shall see that he is loyal to My doctrine and that his soul overflows with charity emanated from My heart."
           "… Tell them it is repugnant to me that they receive Holy Communion standing and without reverence. Tell them that I am offended by those who receive Holy Communion cynically, giving bad example, by the women who approach with heads uncovered and naked bodies! …nor should they receive the Last Blessing unless they are kneeling!"
          "… I speak to many souls just as I talk to you; and I reveal to them the intimate agonies of My love. I make revelations to many, and they prophesy for me, regarding the disaster which the works of the world will bring down upon mankind. I also mention the love of My heart which desires to defend everyone. I manifest Myself to many souls as I do to you."

          Today, my son, we only have time to review two more divine interventions of the latter half of the 20th Century, which gave the world the final details of the Great Chastisement and its immediately preceding events, especially in the USA. First, in the early 1960’s our lady appeared to three young girls in Garabandal, Spain.


          THE WARNING: " Three great supernatural events were prophecied at Garabandal. The first is a worldwide Warning from God to be seen and then felt interiorly by everyone on earth. At that moment we will see the wrong we’ve done and the good we failed to do. The Warning will be sent to correct the conscience of the world and prepare it for the great Miracle.
          THE MIRACLE: The Miracle will take place at the grove of pine trees on a bluff overlooking the village of Garabandal. It will occur on a Thursday evening at 8:30 on or between the eighth and the sixteenth of March, April or May. (Visionary Conchita Gonzalez Keena knows the date and will announce it eight days in advance.) It will be on the feastday of a martyr of the Eucharist and coincide with an event in the Church. All those either in the village or on the surrounding mountains will see it. The sick who are present will be cured, sinners converted and the incredulous will believe. As a result of the Miracle, Russia will be converted.
          THE "SIGN": After the Miracle, a permanent visible supernatural "sign" will remain at the pines until the end of time.
          THE CHASTISEMENT: If the world still does not change after The Miracle, then God will send the Chastisement.
          OUR LADY’S TWO MESSAGES GIVEN FOR THE WORLD AT GARABANDAL: October 18, 1961 – We must make many sacrifices, perform much penance, and visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently. But first, we must lead good lives. If we do not, a chastisement will befall us. The cup is already filling up, and if we do not change, a very great chastisement will come upon us.
          June 18, 1965—As my message of October 18 has not been complied with and has not been made known to the world, I am advising you that this is the last one. Before, the cup was filling up. Now it is flowing over. Many cardinals, many bishops and many priests are on the road to perdition and are taking many souls with them. Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts. If you ask His forgiveness with sincere hearts, He will pardon you. I, your mother, through the intercession of Saint Michael the Archangel, ask you to


amend your lives. You are now receiving the last warnings. I love you very much and do not want your condemnation. Pray to us with sincerity and we will grant your requests. You should make more sacrifices. Think about the passion of Jesus."
          (Note: Tens of thousands of miraculous signs accompanied these Apparitions and Messages to four young girls of Garabandal.)

          Secondly, in 1970 Jesus and Mary appeared to another seer in New York City. These lengthy messages (over 300) were given at large public prayer vigils and lasted until the seer’s death in 1995. Timothy and I, your mother, Paul and Danielle witnessed at least one of these vigils. Here are some excerpts from those Messages as printed in our tabloid newspaper flyer, which we distributed in great quantities.


BACKGROUND STORY: Veronica Lueken, the seer of Bayside, is a wife and mother of five children. She is in her late fifties and lives on Long Island, New York. The story of her heavenly visitations goes back to the year 1968 when St. Theresa, the Little Flower, appeared to her and gave her poems and sacred writings by dictation.
          Our Lady herself appeared to Veronica in her home on April 7, 1970, informing her that She would appear on the grounds of the old St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Bayside on June 18, 1970; that vigils of prayer be held there, and that full directions be given to the clergy of the parish to prepare for Our Lady’s first visit there. Our Lady also requested that a Shrine and Basilica be erected on this Her chosen Sacred Site, which is to be named "Our Lady of the Roses, Mary, Help of Mothers." She promised to come on the eve of the great feast days of the Church. A miraculous spring of water will erupt suddenly, like at Lourdes, to cure the ill.

          THE WARNING: On April 21, 1973, Veronica experienced the coming Warning while in ecstasy: "It’s as though everything has exploded in the sky. There is a great flash! Then it’s very hot – very warm – and it feels like you’re burning. There is a huge explosion, and the sky becomes very white … and then there are colors – blues, purples … Finally, there is a voice within you: Your warning before the Chastisement. Flash, fire, and the voice within you."
          "Man will feel that the power of the elements have shaken the very foundations of his being. The impact of this Warning from the Father will be so great that none will doubt that it came from Him … It will be a major awakening for many. The rumbling and the shaking of the elements will set fright into many hearts … Hearts will shudder with fear and men will drop from fright … Many signs of an angry God will appear before you…"
          WORLD WAR III: Our Lady showed Veronica in vision a map. Veronica saw Jerusalem and Egypt, Arabia, French Morocco, and Africa. Our Lady – "The start of the Third World War, My child … O My children, the Great War, the war to end all wars … will bring a destruction to mankind far greater than any human eye has ever seen or experienced in the past, or will ever see or experience again in the future. If My Son had not promised to come among you in this great catastrophe, there would be no living flesh left."
          (The message says if there are not enough prayers, ¾ of mankind will perish in the Chastisement. Only a few will be saved.)
          RUSSIA – SCOURGE OF MANKIND: "O My children, I warned you many years ago, I warned you at Fatima, that unless you prayed and you did penance, Russia and the agents of the Sickle and the Hammer would go throughout the world, cutting down nations, and bringing death, destruction and slavery! …"
          THE WORLD COMET-STRUCK: Our Lady showed Veronica a large globe. On one side, she was shown Asia and Africa involved in a


great war. Then Veronica saw the United States and Canada, and South America. Then she saw a huge ball – like a sun burning – it has behind it a trail – tail of fire – fast heading to earth – twirling, great heat – cities on fire – all the lights out – people running and falling – looking for candles. The air is heavy and stagnant – a lack of oxygen – candles will not light – it is very dark. The ball is turning and twirling very fast in the sky – spewing out great particles of dust – choking dirt falling – large rocks begin to fall. People run in all directions – no place to run – waves start to rise very high, flowing over the land – New York – the comet flashing…
          SATAN WALKS THE EARTH NOW!!!: "The major demon from hell, Satan, now has entered into the body of one in your country … The man of perdition (2 Thess. 2:3) is Satan --- 666" – (Apoc. 13:18) (the main force, the main individual spirit of 666) in the body of a human being … He is roaming throughout your states, making new covens of iniquity … He has entered into the schools; he is teaching the occult … He has great powers (the powers of hell), and will entice your children into the covens…"
          ROCK MUSIC AND DRUGS: "The spread of drugs was for reason to bring down the morale, and to give your children over to Satan. … Recordings known as rock and roll … are the major instrument for leading your children into the plague, the country wide plague of drugs … They put into your child a spell, a hypnotism leading to promiscuity, deviant sex, homosexuality, drugs, murders, abortions, and all manner of foul deeds …"
          Heaven’s discourses to Veronica Lueken also cover the following Subjects: The One World Government and One World Religion, the Anti-Christ Infiltration of Governments, Schools, Medias, Ecumenism, the Anti-Christ Plot to Place an Antipope on the Seat of Peter, Increases of Natural Disturbances and Catastrophes, the Appearance of New Cults and False Christs, Euthanasia, Test Tube Babies, UFOs, Witchcraft, Rock Music, Astrology and Reincarnation, Women’s Liberation, Modernism and the So-called new Theology, False Prophets, the so-called Charismatic Renewal, etc.
          Our Lady’s counsel to those who wish to be saved: Live a life of prayer, penance and sacrifice. Give up worldly living and amusements. Remain in your parish church as an example of truth and tradition. However, do not accept the modern changes which are from Satan. Receive the Eucharist daily if possible. Make frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament. pray the Rosary daily. Read the Bible (editions before 1964). Wear the Brown Scapular and other sacramentals. Keep the statues in your homes. Spread the Message of Heaven, and await the imminent return of Christ to earth. 82 is the year of the Countdown. Armageddon is now!
          The Blessed Mother instructed that her messages be disseminated throughout the world. Signs are given to those who come with faith. many miraculous photos have been taken by pilgrims during the Vigils using cameras producing on the spot ‘tamper-proof’ developments. Rosaries have changed from a natural metallic color to a gold color, and in some cases to the actual substance of gold, the substance of gold having been verified by jewelers. Other miraculous phenomena observed by pilgrims during Vigils include the spinning sun like at Fatima and the flight of luminous doves. Numerous testimonials are presently available upon request.
          The Blessed Mother requests the faithful to come in pilgrimage to join in the prayers at the Vigils and Holy Hours to petition Heaven for graces of conversion and cure for themselves and their families. Should it be impossible for you to come and pray and petition Our Lady yourself, then you may send in your special private intention by mail, and it will be placed at Our Lady’s feet during the Vigil.


          Our Lady has directed that rose petals blessed by Jesus on the Apparition grounds be distributed to the ill of body and those in spiritual need. The grace and power of conversion and cure is attached to these rose petals and all sacramentals brought onto the grounds to be blessed by Jesus and Mary.
          We invite you to take advantage of the graces offered to you by Jesus and Mary today. Write to the following address to receive these urgent Messages from Heaven and the above-mentioned items: Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers Shrine, c/o Arthur, Box 52, Bayside, New York, 11361.
          TIMING OF THE WARNING: Jesus: " … I give you one indication that the time is ripe: When you see, when you hear, when you hear, when you feel the revolution in Rome; when you see the Holy Father fleeing, seeking a refuge in another land, know that the time is ripe." Sept. 14, 1976
          THE MIRACLE: On December 24, 1973, Our Lady spoke to Veronica about the Miracle -- "The Warning which will be sent upon man must be effective. And in the mercy of the Father, a great spectacle will then be placed in the sky for all to see. However, the agents of hell will try to prove – disprove the hand of the Father in this Miracle."
          "You must cleanse your souls of all sin, mortal and venial. Come to My Son in belief. Believe what you’ll see at Garabandal, and turn back from your ways that have been created by Satan."
          THE WAR: Jesus, February 1, 1972 "Be ye warned that houses will blow in the wind and skin will dry up and blow off the bones as though it has never been! Hasten and listen. You are receiving one of the final warnings to be given to the world before the cataclysms come upon you!"
          THE BROWN SCAPULAR: Our Lady, October 2, 1975 "The Scapular must be worn by all. It will be your badge of courage, and your hope in a discordant world and generation that has set itself onto the road to perdition."
          Our Lady, December 7, 1976 "America, your country the United States, a land of plenty, has never witnessed mass slaughter and death, but, My children, unless – and I say unless you turn back now, your country will witness death such as never has gripped the hearts of man before, a terror brought about by the knowledge that there has been a rejection of truth, a rejection of your God."
          EARTHQUAKES, FAMINE, STARVATION: Our Lady, May 30, 1981 "Earthquakes in your country, the United States, extending up through Canada, earthquakes in places never before known to exist, or the possibility of. And they will know it comes but from the hand of God. Famine, starvation, your crops will rot. The heart will burn, the cattle will starve. And why? Because you refuse to turn back, complacent in your arrogance."
          A GREAT PLAGUE: Our Lady, April 5, 1975 "The children are the true victims of their elders. The example given to them is poor. Many children shall be removed from the world. My child. It will be necessary for the salvation of their souls. It will be a great plague."
          TELEVISION: Our Lady, September 27, 1975 "I have, many times, cautioned you and all My children against the use of the diabolical machine, your television. There will be no excuses accepted for having these in your presence. They are destroyers of the soul and corruptors of the mind. They take you from your moments of meditation; they take you from reading the words of the Good Book, your Bible. They present to you a way of life that is not akin to the way of God. "
          IMMODEST DRESS: Our Lady, July 21, 1974 "Shorts, slacks, shall not be worn in the presence of My son! There will be no rationalizations


accepted for the commission of these acts of impurity!"
          WOMEN WILL SUFFER A GRIEVOUS BOIL: June 1, 1978 "Women of your nation and all of the nations of the world, the Eternal Father shall send a grievous boil upon you, for you have become unchaste, for you have become immodest, and you have cast aside your role as a woman, as a mother, and as a bearer of children for the Eternal Father in Heaven."
          HELL: Our Lady, November 20, 1971 "They will enter hell as numerous as the snowflakes that fall from the heavens. Impress on all the existence of hell, My child. This they would deny. There are fires of hell. Those fires will engulf those who have lost their chastity and modesty, led by modernism to expose their bodies, the temples of the Spirit, to ridicule and sin. The flames will burn every inch that has been exposed!"
          ALL DESCENDED FROM ADAM AND EVE: Our Lady, July 25, 1978 "And shout it from the rooftops that man of science is wasting his time seeking life on another planet. There is no life! Were it not so, the Eternal Father would have given you prophets to write down and discourse with you upon this life. the first man and woman created were Adam and Eve, and all descended from them."
          THE NEW CATECHISMS: Our Lady, May 29, 1976 "The catechisms, My children … we find abominations, lies, and sinfulness abounding in these books. Your children, their minds are being corrupted and destroyed. The eyes are the mirror of the soul! Each parent has an obligation to children to remove these diabolical books from his schools!"
          APOSTLES OF THE LATTER DAYS: Our Lady, August 4, 1979 "I ask all to become apostles of these last days because it will be necessary for man to understand and acknowledge the supremacy of his God in Heaven. I ask that all who have been born into and baptized into the True Faith to go Forward as apostles of Light, disciples for Heaven in these latter days. The Knowledge must be given to those who cannot comprehend, who have hardened their hearts and closed their ears – the knowledge must be given to them – that My son is the Messiah: My Son has been upon Earth, and he shall return again as he ascended!"
          PRAYER – PENANCE—ATONEMENT: Our Lady, February 11, 1971 "Your world is in darkness! Our House is in darkness! I roam, My children, throughout the world carrying the light; My steps grow heavy! The light is flickering! WON’T YOU LIGHT YOUR CANDLE WITH ME AND HELP US IN THIS WAR OF THE SPIRITS? PRAYER … SACRIFICE … ATONEMENT … Is this too much to ask of you?"
          I GIVE YOU HOPE: Our Lady, August 21, 1971 "THIS HOPE I GIVE YOU, MY CHILDREN! It is that we will be triumphant over all evil in the final victory that will be ours. Then, we will restore this garden over to you as a place of paradise and love.
          Through the dark days that lie ahead of you, keep in your heart the knowledge that one day My Son will return! We will all appear to you, My children, and be the ultimate in expectation, the realization of every dream and every victory that has been planned by the Father from the beginning of time!"
          Jesus, September 28, 1971 "I GIVE YOU MY HEART, MY CHILDREN, for all who will join us in this battle. I hold deeply in my Heart all who will help us in this battle to save our children. We will reward you with the greatest of expectations. The greatest acknowledgement of your God would be to save His children."
          "YOU CRUCIFY ME AGAIN … IN MY OWN CHURCH": February 1, 1978 "I gave My human life upon earth, and what have you done? You crucify Me again in My own House. My Church! You crucify those who stand in righteousness in My Church and cast them out, as


you rebuild My church. For what? A Renewal?? And what are you renewing? Have you found fault with My way? Shall you create a new way of man? I say unto you, you blaspheme! You have cast yourself out of the light into the darkness, O Pastors!"
          CHARISMATIC RENEWAL: Our Lady, May 28, 1977 "Pray, My children, that you do not fall into these errors … You must bring this message to the world! You must warn them now, My child, that they are being misled. The secret societies and the search for the Holy Spirit are entering into the realm of Satan! Too many are searching outside the House of God. You, My child, must make it known that the word you call ‘Pentecostals’ is not of God. It is an error."
          ANNULMENTS: Jesus, May 3, 1978 "The Eternal Father has given mankind a set of rules, and in discipline they must be obeyed. It behooves Me to say that My heart is torn by the actions, the despicable actions of My clergy. I unite, as your God, man and woman into the holy state of matrimony. And what I have bound together no man must place asunder. And what do I see but broken homes, marriages dissolved through ANNULMENTS! It has scandalized your nation, and it is scandalizing the World. Woe to the teachers and leaders who scandalize the sheep!
          COMMUNION IN THE HAND: Our Lady, February 10, 1978 "I ask you, My children – you ask Me, many times in your prayers, shall you accept My son’s Body in your hands? I say no, and no again for reason! You cannot judge all those about you, My children, who have accepted this diabolical practice under the guise of leadership. No, My children, this was brought about to desecrate My Son, to take from Him the truth of His Divine Nature. No one who hears My voice must accept My son’s Body and Blood in the hands!"
          SCHOOLS: Our Lady, December 31, 1974 "There is much needed in change, We see, My children, in the schools – both your public schools and your private schools, -- even those who call themselves Catholic, they are Catholic, My children, in name only, for they have sold themselves for pieces of silver."
          1985 BAYSIDE MESSAGES: Massive World Monetary Depression "My child and My children, the days will grow darker, and there will be hunger in your land. Yes, My child, what I brought you here for this evening is to tell the world that there will be a crash in the monetary doings of your government an absolute crash that will affect every man, woman, and child in the United States and Canada, and then, like a serpent, creep all over Europe, until the world sees one big, massive depression. I can illustrate to you, My children, what I mean by this monetary depression. Should you go and wish to buy a small instrument, … it will take a whole suitcase of paper – paper money that no longer has a value. You will soon be reduced to bartering for your food."
          "Pray a constant vigilance of prayer. You have a good and holy Father now in Rome, but should he be removed there will come disaster."
          CRUCIFIX TO GUARD ENTRANCES TO HOME: "I must reveal, My children, to the world again, that you are to keep a crucifix on your front door and your back door. All entrances to your home must be guarded by the crucifix."
          STORE CANNED GOODS, WATER AND BLANKETS: "My children, not only with the canned foods will you store just food, but you also make known to your families and your friends that they had best keep blankets and water in tight containers; for there will be on the onset of the Chastisement, there will be nothing that you can buy due to contamination.
          "Your homes are protected by a supernatural being, with St. Michael, the head of the armies from Heaven. Just as in the days of old, so


will it be, My children, that there will be sent to you an angel of death, but in human form."
          SUDDEN GREAT COLD TO COME: "Do not be afeared, My child; retain your crucifix on your doors. And keep your supply of earthly goods, though they are needed for your human body; the canned food, the candles, the water, and the blankets. A sudden cold shall come upon mankind, and many shall die from the cold."
          RUSSIAN PLAN OF ATTACK FINALIZED: "At this very hour, on this very day, a plan has been built now in Russia to attack the United States and Canada. Satan, being at the controls, will soon have one who is possessed, and of, also, a major rank in the world today, to press that one little technical, technological wizard, not in human form but in mechanical form. Like a robot, this will go forth among the nations, and nations shall disappear from the earth in the short time of three to five minutes. Your country, the United States, and Canada, and most of the nations of the world now, are being lined up by Russia for major strikes."
          NO VEHICLES FROM OTHER PLANETS: "While We speak of agents of hell, My child, I also wish that you make it knows that there are to vehicles coming from other planets – extraterrestrial vehicles. No, My child and My children; they are agents of hell in transport. Now you may ask, why must they be transported if they are spirits? Ahh, My child, this you may not understand. These are not ordinary spirits; these are the demons from hell: satan’s cohorts, and satan himself. He is also on one of the transports.
          ST. BENEDICT MEDAL – HIGHEST INDULGENCED: "My children, now that the time has grown shorter, the attacks shall be greater upon mankind. There will be accidents that are not accidents. Satan has a plan to eliminate the good. Do not be affrighted, My child or My children. You will wear your sacramentals. Specifically, We have asked you, and My Mother has asked you, to wear the Brown Scapular, and also a crucifix, and with that the highest indulgenced medal in the Church."
          Veronica – "And now Jesus is pointing up to the sky. And out in The sky there’s a huge St. Benedict medal, a huge one. Oh-h, it’s so plain. Oh-h."
          "All of this armor was given to you throughout the years of mankind. And it was given for reason, for this very day now that is approaching."

          I would have us read yet one more thing, Phillip. Many Catholics and non-Catholics engaged in something called the Pentecostal Movement. They were called Charismatics. But here is what it really consisted of:

By Dom Peter Flood, O.S.B., M.D., M.Ch.,
B.A., B.Comm., J.C.D.

          "Montanism, called after its first and leading sponsor Montanus, has continued since the end of the second century A.D. under various names and in various forms. It remains always the original ‘Phrygian heresy’ taken up by Montanus somewhere about A.D. 175.
          At different times and in different places it has done and is doing much harm to the Church. Satan, being a pure spirit, by nature does not learn by experience but repeats the old attacks on the True Church and inspires such entitlement of them as will gain their acceptance the more easily, so that even the elect may be deceived for a time.
          St. Jerome thought that Montanus had been a priest of Cybele; he came from Ardabau in Phrygia, a place where the frenzied convulsive dances of those priests would have been well known. He attracted


to himself, away from their husbands, two women, Priscilla and Maximilla. The latter outlived him by some years and though both were his ‘prophetesses,’ she asserted that ‘prophecy’ would die with her. Montanus claimed that a new era of revelation had begun, that of the Holy Spirit. At first claiming to be just the spokesman of the Paraclete, he seems eventually to have thought that he himself was the Holy Spirit. This sect did much harm to the Church and its most notable convert was Tertullian, that stormy African, who soon founded his own subsect, as might have been expected. He then denied the ‘power of the keys’ and generally that of the Papacy. His subsect, calling themselves ‘Tertullianists,’ were for a time strong in North Africa. In the time of St. Augustine, bishop of Hippo, they had a basilica of their own in Carthage, but that saintly bishop soon reconciled them with the Church. Much could be written about the early ramifications of these emotionalists, but it is sufficient to note here that their pagan origin displayed the same manifestations of hysterical states of prophecy – the word usually means no more than a bizarre form of preaching, and not an actual predicting of the future. Where Maximilla prophesied, she was usually proved wrong in the event.
          Under various disguises, this pagan hysteria, often accompanied by eroticism and with deviations from sound doctrine, has appeared at almost every stage of the history of the Church. The Illuminati are the best-known examples, about the time of St. Teresa the Alumbrados. Indeed, it was her sound teaching of the ways of prayer at all levels that destroyed them. Later convulsive Jansenists, and in America such orgiastic groups as ‘holy roller,’ all added their revivalist expressions of these sad aberrations to the motley of history.
          Today, mainly derived from University groups in the U.S.A., new versions of this same folly have arisen and spread through the Catholic world. It is usually accompanied by revivalism in various forms. In Canada, there is a strong injection of vigour from groups in Scandinavia and Holland. England has not been exempt and it is insinuating itself into Ireland. Even Rome has not been preserved from such assemblies. Such is the briefest history of what is basically the cult of an individualism and emotional freedom that contains elements which are parapelagian, and which lead to a rejection of the Magisterium of the Church founded by Christ.
          It is the practice of these groups to insinuate themselves under whatever name seems least offensive to local Catholic thought, and later to announce more openly their true character. Thus, bishops and often simple religious, especially women, are deceived, for Satan ‘was a liar from the beginning.’ Every variety of hysterical manifestation occurs in the meetings of these revivalists, no matter what name they may use. The variety corresponds to the emotional qualities, racial or sexual, of the participants. Beginning in apparent quiet prayer, soon someone starts singing or calling aloud; after a while this becomes more general, and not necessarily do they all sing the same way. A woman may jump up and dance around, apparently joyously and unrestrainedly. This spreads and mutual embracings succeed; for the purely sensitive emotions can easily descend to the erotic or sensual. Someone may call out prayers or for the ‘laying-on’ of hands, and one or other of those present will hasten to do this. The person affected may then become more hysterical and, as they say, ‘speak or sing in tongues’. This glossolalia is not in fact ‘speaking in a strange language’, for it is mere gibberish. An interpreter, the chairman or some other person, may proceed to interpret what he alleges the hysteric has said. Faith healing is also indulged in by some groups, but with indifferent success. Those present may be of different creeds; there is no common belief. Every sort of claim is put forward on the basis of


false exegesis of Scripture, the commonest being that ‘speaking in tongues’ reproduces what the Apostles did after Pentecost when, though speaking in their own tongue, each member of the multi-racial crowd heard them in his own language. At these sessions, however, what is uttered is mere ‘gibberish’ and lacks linguistic structure. Even the promoters of this emotionalism admit that it is open to diabolical illusion, for an evil spirit may manifest himself. This is not an unexpected danger.
          The whole set-up of these meetings favours suggestion from any prominent personality present, just as much as it favours self-hypnotism. Usually the ‘joy’ experienced is only sensory excitement, because certain of the lower brain centres are stimulated and out of the control of higher mechanisms. These states can be produced in rats stimulating electrodes inserted into the hypothalamic centres. The organ of speech escapes from higher control and so the person gives vent to gibberish or song deviants. In a word, the phenomena do not exceed those of any simple dissociation experience and the victims become hysterical and no longer in control of themselves. A considerable study has been made by Samarin from tape recordings, and he suggests that glossolalia always turn out to be the same thing: strings of syllables, made up of sounds known to the subject. He asserts that it is not supernatural. A more technical study has been made by F. D. Goodman, who calls it ‘a vocalization pattern, a speech automatism produced on the substratum of hyperarousal.’ It is thus just uncontrolled use of the power of vocalization, usual in fits of hysteria and in the tantrums of young children not yet capable of sustained speech. To assert that this is an individual intervention of the Holy Spirit is not only blasphemous and even sacrilegious, but simply stupid. There is no warrant in Scripture or elsewhere for the assertion that ‘baptism’ of this sort adds anything to, or can replace, the Sacraments of Christ. Every form of self-illusion can be present but these manifestation are DEFINITELY NOT PRAYER, which, as St. Teresa has rightly shown, is an act of the will. She has also pointed out that even in orthodox mental prayer there are, for beginners, dangers of self-illusion. It is easy to believe that words come from God, which in fact come from our own unconscious desires. Unfortunately, like all forms of purely sensory delectation, this emotional arousal can easily and rapidly descend to the sensual level. One writer says, ‘Christian love in many renewal situations unfortunately bears more relationship to "eros" than to "agape" and this not uncommonly between people with commitments which make this kind of relationship inappropriate.
          A very real danger is a weakening of faith and a contempt for, or actual dislike of, the sacramental order of the Catholic Faith. At first, finding these sensory pleasures in what they have been misled to believe is prayer, many Catholics seem to become more devout, but soon, not finding satisfactions in the calm order of the Church’s liturgy, they drop the practice of the latter. Then comes the greater risk of believing that they are in a higher state than other Catholics and that, being personally in contact with the Holy Spirit, they know more than the Vicar of Christ. An American convert, who has studied this matter, says that they then cease to attend Church, and as they are often practising contraception, they attempt to rationalise this evil by appealing to their private inspiration. This is pure folly! It is the old monanist division between the ‘enlightened’ and the ordinary Catholic.
          From time to time, Bishops have sought to delimit or denounce this movement and even to exorcise its more prominent supporters. They have lacked success because they are not united, or lacking in firmness. Among these people (‘charismatics’) a kind of para-clericalism soon develops whereby they arrogate to themselves rights and duties which belong properly


and solely to Priests in Sacred Orders. This rapidly spreads and despite lip-service to Catholic beliefs, they soon lapse from the Faith. In practice, there are nearly as many beliefs among them as there are groups. Unfortunately, like any other uncontrolled emotion, this love of sensory excitement grows in any community, even in monasteries and convents. Appealing to the emotions and the desire for the bizarre, this movement in all its manifold varieties can do great harm in the Church. For this reason both Religious and laity should be aware of the dangers involved and remain faithful to the approved forms of liturgical and private prayer."


1.     The Charismatic movement magnifies the Holy Spirit. The Bible magnifies Christ. John 16:13-14 "But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will teach you all truth. For he shall not speak of himself; but what things soever he shall hear, he shall speak; and the things are to come, he shall show you. He shall glorify me, because he shall receive of mine and shall show it to you."
2.     The Charismatic movement produces division and strife in many churches. The Bible says, "God is not the author of confusion." 1 Cor. 14:33 "For God is not the God of dissension, but of peace, as also I teach in all the churches of the saints."
3.     The Charismatic movement says that a "second experience" is necessary in order to be complete. The Bible says you are complete in Christ when you are saved. Col. 2:9, 10 "For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead corporeally. And you are filled in him, who is the head of all principality and power."
4.     The Charismatic movement says that Miracles must be from God. The Bible says that not all miracles are from God. Matt. 7:22-23 "Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity."
5.     The Charismatic movement says that speaking in Tongues is a sign that you have been Baptized with the Holy Spirit. The Bible says that it was a sign to unbelieving Jews. 1 Cor. 14:22 "Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to believers, but to unbelievers, but prophecies not to unbelievers, but to believers."
6.     The Charismatic movement says that it is alright for women to speak in tongues in the church. The Bible says that women are to keep silent in the church. 1Cor. 14:34 "Let women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted them to speak, but to be subject, as also the law saith."
7.     The Charismatic movement places great emphasis on "Bodily healing" and tells people that "God is not wanting anybody to be sick," but they have not scripture to show us where God ever said that. Many of them scoff and sneer at such passages -- 11 Cor. 12: 7-10 "And lest the greatness of the revelations should exalt me, there was given me a sting of my flesh, an angel of Satan, to buffet me. For which thrice I besought the Lord, that it might depart from me. And he said to me: My grace is sufficient for thee; for power is made perfect in infirmities, that the power of Christ may dwell in me. For which cause I please myself in my infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecution, in distresses for Christ. For when I am weak, then am I powerful."
