Sept. 23-25 observations and thoughts on America

+ Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary +

Dear Readers,

This week began with the feast of the Holy Rosary on Saturday. It concludes this Friday Oct. 13, and in this same time period we marked the 59th anniversary of the death of Pope Pius XII Oct. 9, the Maternity of the Blessed Mother Oct. 11, the founding of America by Christopher Columbus Oct. 12 and the feast of St. Edward the Confessor Oct. 13. The constellation witnessed Sept. 23-25 has passed without event, although it was definitely an unusual and unprecedented “sign in the heavens,” which seems to correspond to Apoc. 12:1. As noted prior to these dates on this blog, the heavenly configuration was most likely a warning from Our Lady of what is to come.

On Jan. 25-26, 1938, another such warning was seen in the sky. This was the sign predicted on July 13, 1917 by Our Lady that God would give to the world, signaling the beginning of yet another war. In referring to the light, Sr. Lucia dos Santos called it a “great sign,” and “unknown light” which would appear in the sky “during the reign of Pope Pius XI,” as Our Lady had predicted. Our Lady also said it would be: “… the sign God gives you that He is about to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, hunger, persecution of the Church and the Holy Father.” And while Pope Pius XII has been much maligned as the pope who not only allowed Vatican II to happen but actually paved the way for the false council, he indeed was a pope persecuted in ways that those calling themselves Catholics today do not even understand.

“As Our Lady’s prophesied ‘unknown light’ illuminated the evening skies of Europe and North America, the top Communist, Freemason, and Rothschild agent Christian Rakovsky was giving Stalin’s chief interrogator the strategy to approach Hitler with the idea of the Hitler-Stalin pact. This was the idea which led directly to World War II … The ‘unknown light’ shown in the Western Europe evening sky throughout the entire first half hour of the Rakovsky interview at which point it faded. But the same unknown light shown in the evening skies of North America almost till the end of the interview,” (http://realnews247.com/rakovsky_interrogation.htm). And so Our Lady pinpointed not only the time of the actual pact that precipitated the war, but placed it unmistakably in a time frame that will soon be known to be the beginning of the end of the juridic Church. Please see also the new guest post under recent articles by Lauri Brown that further demonstrates Fatima’s message is in perfect agreement with the liturgy of the Church.

Though many seem not to have made the connection, the very same tactics used by the secret societies to destroy the Church are in play today to destroy this country. It began in earnest with the election of Barack Obama, whose citizenship was (and still is) contested just as Roncalli’s Church membership was later contested. Many things were done secretly by Obama that are just now coming to light, as with the usurpers. This was the general undermining preceding the final blows. Today we see the destruction of this country’s culture by the ultra-leftists, bent on ramming Socialism and Communism down the throats of Americans. Christian manger scenes forbidden, 10 Commandment monuments removed, business owners forced to violate their consciences to satisfy public sinners, war monuments destroyed that represent the history of this nation, the dishonoring of Christopher Columbus — the list goes on and on.

Probably the most striking likeness to the destruction of the Church’s devotions, Her Mass and Her Sacraments was evidenced last month when a fourth-grade teacher in Mesa, Arizona substituted the word “humans” for the word “men” in the Declaration of Independence, instructing students to recite the “gender-neutral” version during class-time. One congressman strongly objected to the substitution, declaring the “sacred words” of the Declaration are immutable and incapable of change. But who was publicly protesting when the Canon of the Mass was being falsified — Christ’s own words?  If Christ Himself can be knocked into the gutter, nothing will stop America’s enemies from discarding the words of mere men. Having destroyed the Church, what hope does this country have of saving itself? Unbeknownst to all but a few, the role America has played in that destruction defies belief, and unfortunately she will pay the price for it. Only the Immaculate Conception, her appointed patroness, can save her now.

As the Church goes, so goes the world, so that is the bell that tolls for America. Freedom may be the torch the lady in the harbor holds, but no one is ever free to sin; and that is precisely what these freedoms have come to mean in this country. Men freely created her Declaration of Independence and Constitution as a grand Masonic experiment and can just as freely dismantle it. The Declaration of Independence even says as much. Christ Himself gives us the answer:  “If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also,” (John 15:20).

Fatima’s predictions will be realized in God’s own good time, regardless of anniversaries or signs in the sky. We continue to watch, sickened by what we see, but knowing that God is with us “even to the consummation.”

Blessings,

A Strange Event in the Heavens Sept. 23-25, 2017

A Strange Event in the Heavens Sept. 23-25, 2017

+ Exaltation of the Holy Cross +

Genesis 1:14: “And God said: Let there be lights made in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day and the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.”

“There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars.” (Luke 21:25)

The Internet is ablaze with news of the rare celestial event that will appear Sept. 23-25 of this year — a one-time configuration of stars and planets in the constellation Virgo (the Virgin) never seen in the 7,000 years of man’s history, by some accounts. On Sept. 16 the sun will enter that constellation. This week we had/have these feasts: Sept. 12, the Most Holy Name of Mary; Sept. 13, the anniversary of the fifth apparition at Fatima; the feasts of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Sept. 14) and Our Lady of Sorrows (Sept. 15). Sept. 19 is the 171st anniversary of her appearance at La Salette. As a sky map (available on the Internet) shows for Sept. 23-25, the Virgin “stands” on the moon. Twelve stars will surround her head (nine of them stars in the proper sense and the other three the planets, Venus, Mercury, and Mars). On Sept. 23 the sun will be behind her. Beneath the feet of the woman can be found the serpent constellation, Hydra. The planet Jupiter will have spent 9.5 months (42 weeks) within Virgo’s womb, and will emerge Sept. 23-25. (Sept. 24 is the feast of Our Lady of Ransom. Sept. 22-23 are ember days.) This is precisely the description of events given by St. John in Apocalypse 12:1-5. But what does it all mean?

Protestants, reading the Apocalypse chronologically, believe it is the time of the rapture and the final judgment. Others believe it signals the advent of the “Tribulation” lasting seven years. Both of these interpretations are rejected by Catholic biblical scholars. Protestants also identify the son Our Lady gives birth to, snatched up to Heaven to God’s throne, as Our Lord; and many of them think this could signify the Second Coming. They believe this because according to Internet sources, Jupiter is known as the King planet and Jupiter also was considered by the Jews to be the planet of the Messiah. While Christ, of course, could come at any time to judge the world, most of those identifying themselves as Catholic do not believe this will occur unless the Church is first restored. Most Traditionalists believe, or at least it appears they believe, that Antichrist’s coming is yet in the future and they live in the latter, not the last days. Novus Ordo “catholics” and Protestants also believe his coming lies in the future, and that somehow this September configuration will either trigger events preceding his appearance and/or result in the expected rapture.

But those outside the mainstream must think according to the teachings of the Church. It is curious that prior to birth, all is dark inside the womb; perhaps there will be a period of darkness before Jupiter is actually “born.” It could be possible that during these particular three days mentioned (Sept. 23, 24, 25) the earth may experience the three days of darkness foretold in so many prophecies regarding the latter days. This is gone into in great length by several holy seers, among them Marie Julie Jahenny, Ven. Anna Maria Taigi, Mother Maria Rafols, Anne Catherine Emmerich and others. Only after this event will the world be purged of the evils currently afflicting it. Therefore, the birth of Jupiter may have some reference to the reign of Christ the King following this cleansing purge. Is it a certainty? No, but it is a possibility. Those working for Satan are planning just such a purge themselves and have been for many decades. It is possible that whatever they are engineering will backfire and destroy the evil, not the good. However, I believe it is more likely that this sign is merely a warning and a harbinger of what is to come There was another strikingly similar reference to sky signs and darkness in the Guadalupe apparitions, so this is not an isolated incidence. And it seems to point more to a possible visitation of some kind than anything else.

What was it about Our Lady’s image that spoke so clearly to the Aztecs of the 1500s, compelling them to convert? They identified her image with an ancient Indian tradition about their primary god, Quetzalcoatl, to whom they had erected the largest of Mexico’s pyramids, and at its summit a great temple for his worship. The tradition related how at one time there had been a “long night,” when the sun did not shine for four days, a time when many people perished during the mysterious darkness. (Some attribute this to the violent eruption of a volcano and the deaths from its subsequent toxic gases.) Afterwards, according to legend, a crescent-shaped, serpent-like body with colored markings had appeared in the sky and later transformed itself into a brilliant star, (Our Lady Comes to America, Raphael Grashoff, C. P., 1957). Our Lady of Guadalupe is adorned with the stars as they were positioned in the sky the day she appeared to Juan Diego, and this is very like the configuration in the sky predicted for Sept. 23-25.

At the time Our Lady appeared to Juan Diego, The Boreal Crown of stars is above her head (Apocalypse 12:1, a crown of 12 stars), Virgo hovers near her hands folded over her chest (she is a virgin) and Leo, Lion of the tribe of Judah is below the maternity belt above her womb: She is bearing the King of Kings. The upper part of her cloak is covered with stars, but the star Sirius, identified by some as the Star of Bethlehem (but also worshipped by the Freemasons), is at the bottom of her robe near her feet, just as it is in the Fatima apparitions. (Sirius is one of the stars in the Orion “winter triangle.”) Mary stands super imposed by the Southern Cross, with the constellation Ophiucus just over her left shoulder: Ophiucus the Dark Rift, the serpent bearer and the 13th house of the zodiac. The moon, of course, is under her feet.

Catholics must remember that all the apparitions of Our Lady were intended to console, make requests, warn and/or to convert. These celestial signs help determine the type of message Our Lady wishes to convey. The two references to Fatima, the star and the number 13, link Guadalupe to Fatima. At the time Our Lady appeared in Mexico, the Protestant Reformation was in full swing in Europe. It is said her appearance converted the Mexican natives to replace those Catholics lost to the faith because of the Reformation. This marked the beginning of the Great Apostasy. Nearly 500 years later, could we be seeing its end? And isn’t conversion now more urgent than ever before, since Our Lord could chastise this sin-ridden earth at any time? Warning and conversion – these are the two purposes for this stellar configuration. But given the recent threats to America’s security Our Lady also could come to console, in the event of a terrorist or nuclear event. It all depends on if this sky sign corresponds with a Marian apparition, if that apparition is reported and is credible and if other events continue to unfold, with or without an apparition.

The image in Apocalypse could represent both the beginning and the end of the Great Apostasy. In the beginning, Leo, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, rests in Our Lady’s womb. The Church was still the Church; She had a true pope. But this latest configuration shows Jupiter in her womb. Could this signify the end of the false popes, who ruled as kings and the re-establishment of the papacy? The usurpers now in Rome play the part of the god-emperors of ancient Rome who worshipped Jupiter as their primary deity. The child delivered is pursued by the dragon and taken up to God’s throne in the Apocalypse; this could not have any reference to a pagan deity, nor could such a monstrosity ever be associated with Our Lady. Some say this taking up into heaven symbolizes divine protection (Rev. Leo Haydock); others (Rev. E.S. Berry, Fr. H.B. Kramer) believe the child she delivers is a pope intended to rule, but who is either greatly persecuted and/or martyred. But the one delivered nevertheless rules with a rod of iron, which could indicate divine punishment by the pope elected or the chastisement sent by Our Lord for rejection of the true pope. After all, it is Our Lady of Guadalupe who is the patroness both of the papacy and the Americas, which explains the connection to Fatima.

That such a sky sign should be preceded by and include so many Marian feasts, and coming as it does during the 100th anniversary of Fatima, it seems to be indicative of some manifestation of Our Lady somewhere in the world during this time period. She told the children she would come a seventh time and while it has always been asserted that that time was fulfilled by her private apparition to Sr. Lucia, this does not correspond with the manner in which she appeared the other six times. Perhaps the seers could not reveal it, as it may have been part of the third secret. If Our Lady should appear, it will most likely be in way of a final warning before the terrible Day of the Lord.

That day was seen most clearly by the Breton (French) stigmatist Marie-Julie Jahenny, whose many predictions about our own times have been fulfilled to the letter. Below is a brief sampling of some of her many prophecies.

(From the French Bishop Fournier, who defended the La Salette seers and Marie-Julie Jahenny. After his death he appeared to Marie Julie and told her the following): “I shall weep over the Eternal City and the chains of the Holy Pontiff…I shall shed with him the last tears of the living Church, because sorrow will extinguish Her for a certain time, and that time is written in Heaven.”

“The Blessed Virgin said that only by prayer and penance will we be saved. Pray especially to the Sacred Heart” (Sept. 29, 1874, 44 years before Fatima.)

“Twenty-four hours before the burst of this storm so black (the chastisement), our Lord will give signs in the firmament. Ah! without the Sacred Heart, we will all perish. All priests who are not good, will be punished.” (Dec. 18, 1874)

“The works of God…will be suspended and the places in which the divine presence dwells will become places of scandal. Blasphemy shall reign therein, and horrible decisions will be made there…The first period is that of the priesthood which has existed since [Our Lord’s] time. The second period is that of the persecution when the enemies of the faith will formulate…the book of the second celebration…” (April,1880). “Soon no sanctuaries will be found any longer…[But] religion will continue to dwell in lonely souls, although these will be harassed and struck pitilessly.” (June 1881). “During all this time you will not have the Bread of the Strong…No apostles, you will have only your faith as food, my Divine Son as sovereign Priest to forgive you…”

On Sept. 19, 1901, anniversary of her appearance at La Salette, Our Lady told Marie Julie: “They take little notice of what I revealed…Now is the time that these great promises will be accomplished that the Church authorities have despised…Some holy priests wanted to make known the message of La Salette, other pastors rebelled and the message was put back under seals, whereas it should have been delivered to the world. It was because pastors and the priesthood was the great issue that there was a rebellion…A heavy cross awaits them…A distinct justice is reserved for them.”

On Nov. 27, 1902 and May 10, 1904, the seer learned from Our Lord and Our Lady: “The disciples who are not of my Gospel are now working hard to remake according to their ideas and under the influence of the enemy of souls a mass that contains words that are odious in my sight…” Our Lady announced “the dispersion of the pastors by the Church itself…real pastors who will be replaced by others formed by hell…new preachers of new sacraments, new temples, new baptisms, new confraternities.”

The damage to the Church is so devastating it will take a miracle to restore it, if this is indeed God’s will. We can only hope these sky signs might signal Christ is coming soon either for the final judgment or to end this nightmare on earth and restore His Church. We hope and pray that Our Lord cannot tarry much longer in chastising the wicked, and so we must be armed with the truths of faith and the weapons of prayer and penance, no matter what the day or the hour might be, or what may be seen in the heavens.

God Is on the Field When He Is Most Invisible  (Fr. Faber)

God Is on the Field When He Is Most Invisible (Fr. Faber)

+ Immaculate Heart of Mary, Aug. 22, 2017 +

As I look out each morning on the quiet country landscape where I live, it is hard to believe there is so much insanity assailing us from every side. I would panic perhaps, seeing how it is increasing daily and destroying our way of life if I didn’t know what Christ and his saints and holy people have predicted for the end times.

It has been a long time since I have posted to this blog. Sometimes life intervenes to such an extent it is all one can do to cope from day to day. And yet nothing lasts forever, although it certainly does not get any easier as the “golden years” progress. I am glad to have lived in a time where it was possible to believe just a little that things would soon get better and reverse themselves. It meant for families that there at least was hope for their children.

Today those children face a bleak existence in many cases, with little hope at all of things getting better and a great deal of fear they will only get worse. Almost daily I hear in my email, from my own children, from the suffering elderly, from those newly enlightened, “When will this end; why has God forsaken us?” And indeed Our Lord asked this of His own Father as He hung on the Cross.

And so when I read these words from Henry Cardinal Manning, I knew I must pass them on, to bring at least a little solace to those who are suffering so in this world gone mad. I hope and pray that it brings some peace to troubled hearts.

Help Nearest When Need Greatest

(Excerpts from a sermon preached to the English Synod of Oscott by Rev. Henry Edward Manning, 1852, on the feast of St. Edward the Confessor.)

God was with them in the wilderness: they pressed upon the Divine Presence, though they knew it not. The Omnipotence by which the world was made was with them; and in the hands of the Word made Flesh… What have we here but the shadowing forth of some deeper mysteries? Though the scene lies in the common course of our Lord’s earthly life, yet all His words and works are charged with a profounder meaning. The Son of Man in the wilderness, a fainting multitude, a miracle of compassion on their natural hunger, this we see before us. But there are here greater things than these. The natural order passes into the supernatural, and the whole becomes a symbol and a parable of the Kingdom of Grace. Jesus, the disciples, and the multitude, set forth to us the new creation of God, the Head and the Body; the Church ministering and ministered unto; the whole continuous dispensation of Grace, its fountain and its channels; its sacramental action, its manifold unity of elements, earthly and heavenly, human and divine. This miracle, then, has many lessons for our instruction and encouragement… It is a divine pledge to us that the compassion of the Son of God is ever upon His Church.

From the throne of His glory He watches over the multitude who still follow Him in the wilderness of this evil world. The whole Church throughout all the earth is before His gaze and the sufferings and sorrows of every soul are present to His care. The Sacred Heart of Jesus has not withdrawn its compassion with His visible presence. It is enthroned at the right hand of God; but it is yet with us. “We have not an High Priest who cannot have compassion on our infirmities, but was tempted in all things like as we are, without sin.” There is no depth of human trial which He has not tasted, no suffering in which He has not a share. “It behooved Him in all things to be made like unto His brethren, that He might become a merciful and faithful High Priest before God, that He might be a propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that wherein He Himself hath suffered and been tempted, He is able to succour them also that are tempted.” The compassion of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is ever present in every place. It flows throughout the Church. It has poured forth its divine tenderness through all successions of time. It is the fountain of all ministries of consolation in providence and in grace.

And this leads us to another truth taught us by the miracle in the wilderness; namely, that not only is the compassion and the omnipotence of the Son of God always with His Church, but that, when season and time are ripe, He is ever near to interpose in its behalf. It was not on the first, nor on the second day, but on the third, that He fed the hungering- multitude. He interferes, not when man’s expectations demand, but when His own time is full. There seems to be a divine jealousy in the acts of His omnipotence. He alone can do them, and He will do them in such time and way as that all may know the event to be His work. He loved the Church, and delivered Himself up for it. “His own hand will work for it, and will not leave the issue of its trials in any other. The whole career of the Church verifies this law. For what is it but a series of conflicts and victories, or straits and deliverances, of last extremities and almighty interpositions?

The whole history of the Church is one endless struggle: heresy against truth, schism against unity, the world against God’s kingdom. From age to age we see the finger of His special providence interposing at the last hour of need. When men have thought all hope gone, when all human help has been in vain, and all earthly foresight baffled, when looking on each other they have said, “From whence can anyone fill them here with bread in the wilderness?” then, and not till then, His destined time is come… When our divine Lord promised to the head whom He had chosen for His earthly kingdom, that the gates of hell should not prevail against it, did He not thereby prophesy that they should storm upon His Church? When He said,” Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat; but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not,” did He not foretell the trial and the victory? And are they not perpetual both, the prophecy and the promise, fulfilled and fulfilling through all the course of the Church even to this day?…

With schisms through three weary centuries came every form of error and with error contradictions, doubts, and controversies; and now the minds of men seem to have lost perception and earnestness for truth as truth. Each claims his own view and is content. No matter who may err, or how deeply, so that each be free to choose. Not this or that doctrine of Christian intelligence, the food of the soul, has suffered this dishonour; not this or that article of the Creed, but the principle of faith, the divine foundation of belief,
has been uprooted. The great wound of England is loss of faith in the divine reality of objective truth.

It is the head and the heart that have suffered. Indifferentism has stunted and impoverished both. When the Church ceased to teach, men began to opine. Opinion became the ultimate rule of faith. I am not speaking only of freethinkers and sceptics, whose light philosophy derides the belief that Revelation is an object definite and positive, spread before the reason as the firmament before the eye. Such speculators, indeed, know no truth but the veering shadows and states of their own mind. In them a carelessness for truth is no wonder, and less cause of fear. But there is a wound which has struck deeper into our people. It is the forfeiture of faith, even among the better and the truer; a disbelief in any divine tradition which alone has objective certainty and therefore in the perpetual presence of a Teacher sent from God … thousands wander benighted without a guide. They have been taught to believe that no such Teacher or tradition now exists; that God has not provided for man a certain knowledge of His truth…

But was it Protestantism that gained what faith lost? Far from it… Sin, worldliness, indifference, unbelief, practical atheism, all alike were gainers, but little else. As the Church grew weak … the powers of truth and right, the influences of the unseen world, were weakened too. So ran on the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, till the Catholics of England were numbered only by thousands, all but absorbed in the mass in which they lay concealed. Then was the crisis full, and the hour to work was come. The Lord came; He stood in the wilderness. Once more the creative power of grace passes from His hands, multiplying the little that remained; reproducing what was once destroyed, covering again with His presence the land so long wasted and bare; pastors and flocks, sanctuaries and altars, families of religious, men and women…

Nothing shall be lacking in the hour of need; for the Multiplier is there. All things do Him service; even those that resist Him, in resistance do His will. For three hundred years the empire of old Borne strove to put out the Truth; for three hundred years, in every city and province of its mighty sway, the praetor and the lector, the axes and the rods, wreaked their worst upon the Faith. For three hundred years all the conscious influence of Koine was bent in one aim to destroy the Church of God, but all the while its unconscious influence, even without its knowledge and against its will, wrought for the Name of Jesus. It confirmed His kingdom upon earth. Through all the Church still stood, expanding in calmness and in power, molding to itself the framework and the substance of the empire. It had united all nations, that the Church might penetrate mankind; it had proclaimed silence in the earth, that the infallible voice might be heard; its fleets and armies opened land and sea for the passage of evangelists; its roads and commerce laid the world together ; its laws protected the faithful, its cities were Apostles’ thrones. So shall it be again. Let us fear nothing but mistrust.

We need but faith, and faith too is a gift of God. He is with us in His compassion and His omnipotence. The Lord is come into our wilderness, and the hour to interpose is nigh. Though the line of St. Augustine be broken, and his See without a name; though the saints of our Saxon land seem left without offspring or inheritance, St. Alban and St. Bede, St. Edmund and St. Thomas, shall yet have sons as princes in all lands. The land that was desert and impassable shall be glad, and the wilderness shall rejoice and shall flourish like the lily. It shall bud forth and blossom, and shall rejoice with joy and praise; the glory of Libanus is given to it the beauty of Carmel and Sharon; they shall see the glory of the Lord and the beauty of our God. Strengthen ye the feeble hands and confirm the weak knees. Say to the faint-hearted: “Take courage and fear not: behold your God will bring the revenge of recompense; God Himself will come and save you.”
