THE following messages, prayers, and promises were received by a privileged Hungarian nun, (Sister Dolores, Elizabeth Krizsan, who died in 1998 at the age of 96); a consoling soul, who in her humility and obedience to her spiritual director wished to remain anonymous while on earth.
Mary, Our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion daily, or at least weekly, to offer their lives for the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls, that the souls of sinners may not be damned but receive, at least at their last hour, the graces of eternal life.-- [Revelations of St. Gertrude]
Trump Does the Unthinkable By: Liz Conklin July 16, 2016
As an entertainment journalist, I’ve had the opportunity to cover Trump for over a decade, and in all my years covering him I’ve never heard anything negative about the man until he announced he was running for president. Keep in mind, I got paid a lot of money to dig up dirt on celebrities like Trump for a living, so a scandalous story on the famous billionaire could’ve potentially sold a lot of magazines, and would’ve been a huge feather in my cap.
Instead, I found that he doesn’t drink alcohol or do drugs, he’s a hardworking businessman. On top of that, he’s one of the most generous celebrities in the world, with a heart filled with more gold than his $100 million New York penthouse. [Read More Here]

"....and trust that He will make all things new."
And therein lies the greatest, most sanctifying thing we can possibly do at this time;......to TRUST Him, when we have been so robbed of every vestige of leadership, save a few in distant lands; to TRUST Him when all seems so hopeless, ravaged as we are by spiritual hunger and bereft of the shelter of Gods Holy Sanctuary, which for the most part is anything but; to be denied every source of consolation in Truth at the hands of those He called to lead us in all Truth, to protect us from the storms of spiritual destruction, none laying down their lives that we may not lose ours.
No one is coming to save us; wherever we are, we must push through with every ounce of our strength for HE has not abandoned us. It is in Him and through Him and with Him that we place our trust. And though His Most Precious Blood poured from His Holy Wounds on a day that looked to be the darkest day of all, we know for a fact that He did triumph over the sin that inundates His Mystical Body now. He showed us, if we but stand beneath His Cross with His Holy Mother, that evil NEVER wins.

The Orthodox know full well what's going on. From their vantage point the only reasonable thing for disgruntled and disillusioned Catholics to do, under these circumstances, is to seriously rethink Orthodoxy. That's not something I'm interested in. And sadly, the Assembly of God denomination I came out of looms as another alternative, but I am not leaving the Catholic Church. I read my way into the Church, and out of protestant thought, becoming convinced, first and foremost, of Catholicism's take on John 6 and the efficacy of the Holy Mass.
About Francis? He is a scoffer, a jester, a pontifical merry-maker, who plays foolishly with the esteemed Office he holds.
What is to be done? I guess rebuild after he leaves.
I feel like an outsider looking in, being a new Catholic, and a non-latin Mass one at that. But I am aware of the problems our Church is presently having to endure. The lack of a fix is most perplexing, I agree fully with the writer of this article.

St. Benedict's Thistle Rod Halvorsen • 3 days ago
We should probably look further back than Catholic history, indeed to the history of the Hebrew Scriptures where we will find the destruction of the temple and the scattering of the Israelites. The result of progressive sin on the part of the priests and the people will always result in a loss of grace and a withdrawal of God.
God does not change, so I don't believe He actively wills for what we are experiencing. We are experiencing the natural outcome of abandoning Him. It is only through a thorough cleansing, repentance, and reformation that He will draw nigh unto us again.
There is much we can do. We can research, write and publish the truth about our situation, as far as we know and see it. We can stop feeding the Beast that uses our funds to continue doing evil. We can seek out holy priests and holy masses. We can teach our children the true faith. We can rebuke and exhort those in the hierarchy who are weak and corrupt. We must certainly seek to expose and see evil punished, such as those who continue to abuse and cover up sexual abuse.
We can openly and heartily support those, like Archbishop Vigano, who speak out. We must confront and rebuke clergy and laity in our local parishes who preach and teach wrongly. Clericalism will not be defeated if we continue on as passive, effeminate Catholics.
We can seek to pray more fervently, and do all the things we are usually exhorted to do (rosary, fasting, etc.) I would also suggest a program of Lectio Divina, as well as following the liturgical calendar and reading the daily mass if one cannot attend.
One of the most important things we can do is to stop supporting, in any way, those who are destroying the Church from within. I do believe we will be held accountable at our judgment if we remain lukewarm and seek to ride out the storm without taking an active stand against the evil manifest in Rome and our dioceses.

“We have to recognize that no matter how badly we want to tackle the soldier raining down scourges, this is a chalice God willed, and it will be drunk to the dregs.”
That’s some powerful imagery...

"These are not men who are merely misguided; they are destroyers, who
have come in hatred of our religion to remake it according to their own
Thank you for this. This is the truth.
It took me a while to realize this, but I understood this about 10 or 15 years ago. And I have watched it get worse and worse as time is going on.
When you understand this, and then see the latest move or hear the latest news it's like watching a movie you've seen before. You know the plot. You know it's intended to destroy even that which is still standing. Rather than doing what you know they should be doing, they do the opposite! Mother Angelica knew it and said so. They reacted by trying to destroy her and EWTN.
I have been blessed to find Catholic theology books published before 1950. Two I found recently were published in 1920 and used by men in the high school seminary system in Chicago (Quigley Preparatory Seminary). One is on doctrine. One is on morals. They are priceless to me.
My advice is to think like you would expect people who were being persecuted for their faith thought in Europe during the Protestant "Reformation." Think as you expect people thought during the takeover and destruction of faith in Russia and the countries that fell under the power of the Soviet Union. Think as you expect the faithful of China are thinking. Because what ultimately matters is God. Tested? Oh yes, you will be. But these things will pass away, but God will never pass away.

And therefore 'these men' should be named properly, the ENEMIES of the Church. Which means that all of them who are the enemies of the Church must be, and certainly are against our Lord Jesus Christ.
Which means they, the enemies of the Church, are all little antichrists. Or even worse.

Over 40 nations unite spiritually on Sunday to pray the rosary for Our Lady’s help in fighting evilPINE BLUFF, Wisconsin, October 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Catholics in more than 40 countries across the world will unite this Sunday to fight the forces of evil prowling the earth and the Church by praying the rosary.
An effort that began as a U.S. response to Poland’s flourishing Rosary at the Borders last fall has gone global with rosary rallies planned worldwide in what organizers are calling a “clarion call of the Immaculata.”
The term Immaculata derives from the word immaculate, which in Catholic theology means free from sin, also denoting the Virgin Mary and the Immaculate Conception.
“This is a worldwide effort to combat the powers of darkness,” the Rosary Coast to Coast website states.
Citing the myriad social ills that have befallen the culture in the U.S. and the world – including sexual hedonism, abortion, divorce, pornography and drug use – the rosary effort recalls Our Lady’s appearances throughout history, where she predicted the societal decay and called for Catholics to pray in reparation.
Casualties often go unseen in this war with no borders, the initiative’s information also says, but very few are left unwounded.
“The enemies encamped against us seek to rob us of our dignity – the essential dignity of the human person, being made in the image and likeness of God,” it states.
“What was once done in darkness is now celebrated in the light,” the rosary organizers continue. “Yet, where before we may have been blinded, God’s unfathomable mercy is opening the hearts, the minds and the eyes of people of Faith. Our Lady’s Clarion Call – the call once trumpeted at Quito, LaSalette, Fatima, Tre Fontane and Akita — is upon us.”
Earlier this year, Catholics in the United States were invited to pray the 54-day Novena for Our Nation from the Feast of the Assumption on August 15 through the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7, concluding with the Rosary Coast to Coast. It was the second such effort involving the novena culminating with the rosary rally on the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.Several U.S. cardinals and bishops have endorsed the Rosary Coast the Coast. Hundreds of U.S. sites have registered participation in the rosary rally. The initiative operates under the Mantle of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and its patrons are St. Michael the Archangel and Padre Pio. [More at Lifesite News].

All souls who will live until the end of the world will benefit from their life offering.“None of their family members will go to hell, even if it seems otherwise, because they will receive in the depth of their soul the grace of sincere contrition before their soul departs from their body.“On the day they offer their lives, their loved ones suffering in Purgatory will be released.“I will be with them at the hour of their death. They will not know Purgatory. I will carry their souls straight to the presence of the Glorious Trinity, where they will live with me in a special place created by God, and will rejoice forever.”
Text of the Life Offering (1955)“My dear Jesus, before the Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with your most precious Sacred Blood and your sacrifice on Calvary, I hereby offer my whole life for the intention of Your Sacred Heart and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with my life I place at your disposal all Holy Masses, all my Holy Communions, all my good deeds, and my sacrifices, and the sufferings of my entire life for the adoration and supplication of the Holy Trinity, for unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father and for priests, for good priestly vocations, and for all souls until the end of the world.O my Jesus, please accept my life sacrifice and my offerings and give me your grace, that I may persevere obediently until my death. Amen.”* * *This life offering must be made with humble heart, firm resolution, and clear intent. All prayer, good deeds, suffering, and work done with pure intention have great merit, if they are offered together with the merits, the sufferings, and the blood of Jesus Christ.It is recommended that you make this life offering as soon as you feel ready, and renew it from time to time.* * *
The following are excerpts from the messages received by the privileged soul.Our Lady to those who offer their lives:“If the Eternal Father chooses to give a soul the grace of being among the elect, He will order that soul to become similar to His Only-Begotten Son while on earth, but in what way should this soul be like His Son? In love and acceptance of sufferings. If you follow your Jesus in these two ways, then the Eternal Father will recognize His Holy Son in you.“Souls chosen by the Eternal Father to offer their lives must strive to save as many other souls as possible. This can be done through fervent prayer, through the practice of love, through meekness, humility and self-denial, but above all through the patient acceptance of sufferings. I believe that my motherly Heart will find among my children souls who love God with the love of the martyrs.“My children, during the greatest trials, hold my motherly hand with unbounded trust. Come together with me to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. He is your strength on your earthly pilgrimage. Thus, strengthened by Him daily, you will march toward your eternal dwelling place of happiness, where you will recognize each other in glorious ecstasy, you who sacrificed your lives for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. Then my Holy Son will embrace you to his flaming Heart, and He will immerse you in the ecstasy of the united love of the Trinity. In this state of eternal bliss you will rejoice forever, together with those souls who were able to gain eternal life, because of your selfless life sacrifice.“No matter how heavy your suffering on earth, it will last but a short time. Rejoice while you suffer, because you are proceeding toward a sure goal, and at the end of this road your Heavenly mother is waiting for you, to embrace you with the eternal love of the Trinity.“My children who offer your lives, make the act of contrition every day! Make it not only for yourselves but for all men. This will continually weaken the power of evil to tempt, and will help all souls to free themselves from the slavery of sin.“If you continually practice contrition for others, this will act as an antiseptic to arrest the spread of the “virus” of sin. It will stop the infection, illness and death of souls. See how great the power of sincere contrition is, if it comes from the depths of the heart? It can heal, cleanse and save the life of the soul.“In addition to contrition for the whole of humanity, unite yourself with My Immaculate Heart to storm heaven with prayers, for the pardon of sins. Thus you will become united with me, and become genuine and intimate helpers of Jesus as fishers of men.”Prayer of ContritionO my Jesus, I love you over and above everything! For the love of you I am sorry for all my sins. O merciful love, I ask pardon for the sins of the world.United with the Immaculate Heart of Our Heavenly Mother, I ask pardon for all my sins, and for all the sins of my brothers and sisters, that have been and will be committed until the end of the world.My dear Jesus, united with your Holy Wounds, I offer my life to the Eternal Father, according to the intention of the Sorrowful Mother.Virgin Mary, Queen of the world, Mediatrix of humanity, our only refuge and hope, pray for us!* * *Our Lady: “My children! Abandon yourselves totally to the will of God, and then He will give you everything! Hold my maternal hand with confidence, and then we stay together forever!”“If the number of those who offer their lives were multiplied, this would shorten the time of waiting for the promised victory, and the peace that will follow it.Abandon yourselves totally to the will of God, and then He will give you everything! Hold my maternal hand with confidence, and then we stay together forever!” “My children! I am calling you to apostolic privilege. You are chosen to suffer martyrdom of the heart for the sins of others. And by this voluntary life-sacrifice—coming from your good heart-- God will be able to pour out the flood of His mercy. Think about that!“My beloved children! If you carry patiently the little thorn from the cross of my Son that he has given to you, you can save countless souls from eternal damnation. Thus holding the hand of your Heavenly Mother, you too will partake in the work of redemption.My children! Do not ask for sufferings, but always accept with humility and selflessness those that the Lord hands to you.Jesus (Sept. 24, 1971)“My Children! The fate of my Church is always in my Heart, since I promised that the gates of hell will not prevail against her. I still have many good and true priests, but many discarded the cloth of election. In place of the unfaithful, disloyal priests, I created my fishers of souls! These are the priests of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, who were called by the Lord of the harvest to work quietly for souls and for the glory of God. Even if there is a shortage of priests—and so it seems—a multitude of souls will escape damnation, because instead of the disloyal priests, there stands the life offering of love!”
Our Heavenly Mother (Sept. 24, 1955) The feast of Our Lady of Ransom“My children who are carrying the cross of illness! The sacrifice of your patient sufferings becomes a great act and a giant source of energy to convert souls. With this noble currency you can pay for the most offending sins. Thus together with your Lady of Ransom you can free the slaves of sin, even hardened sinners, chained by the evil one, so that by becoming free, they may find their way to their Father's house. My children who suffer from illness: Your strength has to come from the knowledge that you are the most effective co-workers of my Holy Son. Quietly, without notice, you help the triumphant renewal of Holy mother Church, and also help the multitude of souls reach the gate of salvation. Knowing this, you should rejoice while suffering, because great and everlasting happiness awaits you in Heaven!”Our Lady (Sept. 20, 1986)“My children! Make sure that the great grace of the life offering will reach the souls who suffer greatly in body or in soul. It must reach the incurably sick, the physically handicapped, and the bedridden, so that their suffering will not be in vain! This suffering can become a fund of gold for all humanity, as well as for yourselves, because in your hearts and souls you will receive peace, strength, relief, and satisfaction, if you realize that patient acceptance of your sufferings will bring you great happiness in heaven!”The seer: I have obeyed this request of Our Lady, and I communicated this request to suffering souls… I can say from my own experience that their suffering was greatly lessened, when they accepted the graces that accompanied their life offering.Prayer of the Sick Recommended by Our Lady“My Jesus, I know that You love me, and You love particularly those who are sick or suffering. I ask, if it is possible to take away this chalice of suffering, but I say with You, “not my will but thine be done,” as You said in the Garden of Gethsemane. My Jesus, strengthen and console me. Our Heavenly Mother, healer of the sick, pray for me to your Holy Son. Amen.”Our Lady (October 27, 1987)“My children! Those who offer their lives should pray the Rosary daily! This is the most evangelical prayer. The Creed is the prayer of the Church. The Lord himself taught the Apostles the Our Father. The Hail Mary is the message of the Father, indicating that the time of redemption has arrived.Our Lady (January 11, 1988)“My dear children! You have read that I call those to offer their lives who love God and their fellow man with the love of the martyrs. Only those with self-sacrificing love can give their lives for others to realize the holy intentions.“First among these holy intentions is the adoration and consolation of the Holy Trinity for all the ingratitude, for the many profanities, and the great multitude of the sins of the world.“The second holy intention is the prayer for unity, which my Holy Son prayed thus: 'That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee…” (John 17:21). Do you see, my children, how hard Satan is working to destroy unity between the priesthood and the flock, and in families between men and women and between parents and children! Satan works to take away peace, and to stir up trouble all over the world. We have to launch a counterattack for the victory of unity.“The third holy intention is to pray for your fallen and faithless human brothers. If with your life-offering you could save another soul beside your own and help another soul to get to Heaven, you were not born in vain!“Then you should think about your loved ones! Because God cannot be surpassed in generosity and mercy. Meditate on the teaching of my Holy Son: 'For what doth it profit a man if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul?' (Matt. 16:26). My children! Abandon yourselves totally to the will of God, and then He will give you everything! Hold my maternal hand with confidence, and then we stay together forever!”“Get strength for this life sacrifice from the Holy Eucharist… Be aware and distinguish between human bread and the bread that descended from heaven. Believe, with living faith, that Jesus indeed is really present in both His humanity and Divinity in the Holy Host… If you receive Him with living faith, you receive the sanctifying and helping graces of the Holy Spirit, together with His consoling joy and courage, to follow the Good Shepherd on the narrow but sure way to the Father.”“If the number of those who offer their lives were multiplied, this would shorten the time of waiting for the promised victory and the peace that will follow it.The treasures of your self-giving fall like myrrh on my heart, and from there they will flow as sweet fragrance to the Trinity, to help realize their holy intentions.Together with Mary, our soul magnifies the Lord for ever and ever.

Martyred king of Austrasia. The son of King Sigebert II, Dagobert took the throne as a child and was forced into exile. Bishop Dido of Poitiers, France, took him to Ireland when Childebert was named king. Dagobert regained his throne in 675 , but he was murdered only four years later. Ebroin, the mayor of the palace, slew him on December 23 while on a hunting trip. Dagobert was a friend of St. Wilfrid of York.

Born a Prince, the son of Saint Sigebert III, king of Austrasia, and Chimnechild of Burgundy. Upon Sigebert's death in 656 when Dagobert was still a child, the throne was stolen by Dagobert’s guardian Grimoald in order to make his own son, Childebert, king. Dagobert was kidnapped and exiled to Ireland and England, where he was placed with Dido, bishop of Poitiers, France. He attended school at the court of the king. Friend of Saint Wilfred of York. He married an English princess, and had several children including Saint Irmina of Oehren and Saint Adela of Pfalzel. Fought against Theodercus III. Eventually recalled to Austrasia for a supposed reunion, he died in a “hunting accident” that most considered a murder, committed to permanently remove him from the throne.

What Jesus Really Wants
In 1938, Our Lord spoke to a Capuchin nun, Sister Consolata, in Italy and told her: "Do you know why I do not allow you many vocal prayers? Because an act of love is more fruitful.... Do not waste time, because every act of love represents a soul saved.... The greatest gift of all that you can offer to me is a day full of love.... I have rights over you. You told me that you love me! For this reason I desire an endless 'Jesus, Mary, I love you. Save souls!'
"If a creature of good will loves me and will make of his life a single act of love, from waking up to falling asleep (of course, with his heart), I will do incredible things for that soul. I thirst for love.... I thirst for being loved by my creatures!
"Souls believe that an austere and penitent life is needed to come to me. Can you see how they misrepresent me? They picture me as fearsome, while I am just kind! How easily do they forget the precept that I have given to you: 'You will love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, etc.' Today, as yesterday, as tomorrow, I will ask My creatures for love--always and forever." -- (taken from "Jesus Appeals to the World," by Lorenzo Sales.)

• The End of Our Era. Mark Mallett. 19 min.
(Transcript of beginning) As we watch what is coming out of Hollywood, the television series, the movies, and so on, we can see that even among the secular group, there is an expectation of some world-changing events, that are going to turn the whole world upside down, the end of an era as we know it, or perhaps even the end of the world. And we hear so much speculation today as to what's coming, that it's going to be 2012, when everything is going to happen, and that type of thing. We hear even within Christianity, certain evangelical Christians saying that Jesus' return is imminent, that the Lord is coming, but then we also hear from other elements within Catholicism: this is not the end of the world, but the end of an era, and that there is going to be a time of peace, an era of peace, or triumph.
And so in this program I want to speak about what I believe is coming, based not upon my own opinion again, but based upon what the church tradition is saying, and what the early Church fathers and the voices within the church are telling us and have been saying for over 2,000 years, and I think we're just beginning now to recover those things, because for a long time, it seems that the whole notion, the whole talk of the end times, of the coming of Christ, has been buried in the Church, which was certainly not the spirit of St. Paul, or of St. Peter or of St. John. There was always this expectation of the parousia, the coming of Our Lord. etc. etc.
• Great Shaking, Great Awakening. by Mark Mallett. 16 min.History Will Repeat Itself
By Charles Reed -
In the book of Second Chronicles it is written: Zedekiah was 21 years old when he began to reign, and reigned 11 years in Jerusalem. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the Lord. Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the Lord which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. And the Lord God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place. But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.
Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age; he gave them all into his hand. And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof. And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia; to fulfil the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths; for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years. – (2 Chron. 36)
It is written: They mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets.
In our days God has sent, not a prophet, but the Queen of prophets, who predicted at Fatima what would happen to the world, if people did not pay attention to her requests.
A few paid attention to her words, but the majority did not. When the great chastisement comes and various nations are annihilated, it will become clear to everyone that these times were worse than the times of Sodom and the Flood. If more than half the population perishes in the great chastisement, it will be their own fault, for they had an opportunity of being saved, and they despised it. They mocked the messengers of God and despised his words; they will be cut down like grass.
Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. – Psalm 37:2
For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous. – Psalm 37:17
Because I have called and you refused. I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded. Because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes…… because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord, they would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies. - Proverbs Ch. 1

God will strike in an unheard-of-way. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth. God will pour out his wrath, and no one will be able to flee so many accumulated evils.
The chiefs and leaders of the people of God have neglected prayer and penance. And the devil has obscured their minds. The have been turned into errant stars which the devil will drag with his tail to perdition.
God will allow the old serpent to foment divisions among those who reign, in all societies and in all families. They will suffer physical and moral torments. Society is on the verge of most terrible scourges and paramount events. One must expect to be governed with an iron lash and to drink the chalice of God's wrath.

And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding: and the door was shut. Afterward the foolish, unprepared virgins came also, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us! But he answered and said, assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.

The End of This Satanic Age
Why Is This Time Satanic?
For the world, our century is the most fantastic time in all the history of mankind. There is no end to the scientific miracles. Hearts and other organs are routinely changed, man sets foot on the moon and countless technical marvels make life easier than ever. Barriers, society's moral laws, are disappearing at a fast pace. What was considerd morally taboo a few decades ago is now completely normal, making life more "fun" than ever before. For the world, this is a good time, and the best is yet to come. - - - Read More Here --
• Reality of Hell: Apparitions of condemned souls
The Authentic Third Secret of Fatima?
There will be a wicked council planned and prepared that will change the countenance of the Church. Many will lose the Faith; confusion will reign everywhere. The sheep will search for their shepherds in vain.
A schism will tear apart the holy tunic of My Son. This will be the end of times, foretold in the Holy Scriptures and recalled to memory by Me in many places. The abomination of abominations will reach its peak, and it will bring the chastisement announced at La Salette. My Son's arm, which I will not be able to hold back anymore, will punish this poor world, which must expiate its crimes.
One will only speak about wars and revolutions. The elements of nature will be unchained and will cause anguish even among the best (the most courageous). The Church will bleed from all Her wounds. Happy are they who will persevere and search for refuge in My Heart, because in the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph.

On the Crisis, Chastisement and Triumph
One hundred years before the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora received prophetic revelations that spoke of the current crisis in the Church, the Great Chastisement and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart. Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora was born in 1774 and lived in Italy until her saintly death in 1825. On instructions from her confessor, she wrote down her revelations which fill hundreds of notebook pages. Today, the manuscripts are safely kept in the archives of the Trinitarian Fathers at San Carlino, Rome. ♦ Read More Here.

THIS image was revealed by God Our Lord to Maria Concepcion Zuñiga, a Franciscan religious, on March 4, 1932. It was prophesied, moreover, that a time would come when Divine Justice would be venerated through this image, and a cult of love would be rendered to "my victim Heart." Our Lord referred to it on other occasions by calling it "the Sun of Justice." (Malachy 4:2)
When she had the vision of the image that is reproduced, she heard the voice of the Blessed Virgin, who explained it in the following words: "There are three rays of divine Justice, because of the Trinity of God, and when divine Justice discharges itself on the world as a terrible shaft of immense sanctity, these three rays pass through the Heart of the Word Incarnate, Mediator between Heaven and earth, who, as a victim, remains crucified in the Holy Eucharist. And this Heart, Fountain of all sweetness, converts them into his own essence, to shed them on souls as a beneficial rain, making blossom flowers of sacred perfume (roses, passion-flowers and lilies: charity, penance and purity). And despite such great love, the world responds with the greatest ingratitude, fleeing from the splendor of his rays and from the tenderness of His love, and increasing His mystical sufferings, hurling darts of ignominy (sins) at him."

Post-Conciliar Disorientation and Clarity of Tradition
(Rome) The Second Vatican Council was to be the start of a new flower, to a new "spring" of the Church of charismata and strong religious faith of the people. The Council, at least in the conviction of not a few prelates, clergy and laity of the 60s, was to make "all things" new, especially the relationship between society and the Church. Through the Council, Christianity would reach all people, all ideologies, even embracing all other religions and in a new world that was Christian through and through.
And yet some, still undaunted, agree to praises of the Council. An attitude which imposes two explanations. Some, because they welcome the negative effects in the post-Conciliar period internally. The others, because they force themselves in a denial of reality and try to keep these effects to which they object inside, to desperately to ignore them, because criticism of the council was made successfully into a taboo. ♦ Read More Here.
Evidence of Satan in the Modern World
by Leon Cristiani
The evildoer is not happy. If one is full of oneself, one is full of a devilish spirit. We destroy men's souls through their senses. God makes use of men to test them. If you suffer affliction, receive it as an act of Grace. The Cross is preferable to all things. God carried the Cross for the salvation of men, and he makes those whom he loves carry it too.
The world believes that humility is weakness and incapacity: and I say that humility is power and grandeur. If you knew the misery of the reprobate, you would all be saints!
There is no language to describe the torments of the damned; there is no human mind able to comprehend them.
He who loves men more than God will not be loved by God. God allows misfortunes for the spiritual betterment of men; in order to bring them to himself and make them return to him. Never forget that crosses are better than honours.
We must understand that life is short and that we must endure our troubles in a spirit of penitence, as they came from God.
One cannot love God without loving one's neighbour. Happy are they who can leave all for God.
Ah, if only men could see how beautiful is a soul in a state of grace.
Happiness is not here below: he who possesses God possesses everything.
The rich should be the banker of the poor. God has put these riches into his hand to help his fellow men: he is God's business-man.
The rich man should despise himself and follow the teaching of our Saviour, who said: 'It is easier for a camel to pass through a needle's eye, than for a man to enter the Kingdom of God when he is rich' (Mark X, 25).
But, strange to relate, Isacaron had no sooner pronounced these edifying remarks than he fell into a rage and began to blaspheme God, insult God's creatures, even insult himself. 'Woe to the proud,' he cried, 'Woe to me, Isacaron. It was pride, ingratitude, and disobedience that led to my rebellion and damnation.'
Here are some further reflections by Isacaron on various subjects:
On Pilate: 'Pilate, as a judge, knew that he was condemning an innocent man, and yet the Devil drove him to condemn the sovereign Judge, the Judge of judges. Pilate, by washing his hands, soiled them.'
On Mary Magdalene (from whom, according to the Gospels, Our Lord drove out seven devils): 'Mary Magdalene is a very great saint, in whom one can put one's utmost trust. As soon as she had the good fortune to know God, her contrition was so great, her tears so abundant, that no devil could make her sin again. She is a model for all true penitents, who should make her their special advocate with God, for God grants great favour to those who invoke her aid.'
On meditation: 'If you meditate truly on the life of our Saviour and of his Blessed Mother, I defy you to commit the slightest sin against God.
'Hunger, thirst, death, are nothing: only sin is to be feared.' On Christian perfection, replying to a lady who asked Isacaron to tell her the nature of Christian perfection, and the way to attain it, he said:
'To hold mortal sin in horror; not to commit even venial sins voluntarily; not to lose sight of the presence of God; to know how to humble oneself all the days of one's life, for pride is the worst of all vices; to set a good example and give good advice; to do penance, as the Forerunner demanded. And let him who is holy become still more holy.'
Prayer to Mary To conclude these aphorisms from so strange a source, here is a prayer to Mary, composed and dictated by the devil Isacaron.
O divine Mary, I turn towards you In total trust, For you abandon no one. You who have at heart the salvation of man, to whom God refuses nothing that you ask him, take me under your powerful wing. If you deign to grant my humble prayers, all hell is harmless against me. You who are, in some way, the mistress of my fate, my fate is in your hands. If you abandon me I am lost without help! No, you are too good to neglect those who hope in you. Pray to the Holy Trinity for me and I am sure of my salvation! Ah, if I could make you known to all dwellers on earth, if I could proclaim your power everywhere! That which I cannot do myself I beg the Heavenly Hosts to do. Let even devils be obliged to proclaim that you are the masterpiece of God's works, that the power of God lies in your hands, that you are terrible to devils, and that all is subject to you. You are the incomparable, you alone are Virgin and Mother, you gave the world its Redeemer. You stand apart with St. Joseph. Thus you are more to be revered than all the angels and all the saints: You are truly divine. I trust in you, in the firm belief that the infernal powers cannot triumph over me. So be it! All the angels, all the saints bless you for ever! So be it!
Having made this prayer, we are told that the devil suddenly became jovial and, alluding to the fact that Antoine Gay had been shut up for three months as a madman at the Antiquaille in Lyons, remarked: 'They can go and look in all the asylums before they find a madman who can dictate a prayer like that!’

A Summary of Fr. Hesse’s talk on the documents of Vatican II
Fr. Hesse qualifications: Fr. Hesse was appointed theologian by the Holy Father, John Paul II. He has his Doctorate from the Pontifical University in Rome in theology and canon law. Fr. Hesse spent 15 years in Rome and was the secretary for Cardinal Stickler for 2 years.
Quotations regarding the unchangeability of the Sacraments:
Canon 13, 7th Session of the Council of Trent says: “If anyone says that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the solemn administrations of the sacraments, may be condemned, or without sin be omitted at pleasure by the ministers, or be changed by any pastor of the churches whomsoever into new ones; let him be anathema.” Some translations in English mistranslate as “…or be changed by any pastor of the churches into new ones…”. The word ‘whomsoever’ includes the Pope himself who is the Prime Minister (pastor). Latin: per quem cumque Ecclesiarum Pastorum
The Council of Trent does not need to tell me that any pastor cannot change the rites.
Pope Innocent III said that if any future Pope tries to change the sacraments, he must not be followed.
At Council of Florence Pope Eugene IV had as his theologian Cardinal Torquemada who wrote a book titled “Summa Ecclesia”, which says that if a Pope tries to change the sacraments he puts himself outside the Church. For this work Pope Eugene IV gave him the title “Defender of the Faith”.
Pope St. Pius V in response to the Council of Trent’s dogmatic definitions wrote his bull Quo Primum. This bull clearly states that the Roman rite and those rites greater than 200 years old, cannot be changed and that any priest cannot be forced to say any other rite. All Popes after this time up to and including Pope John XXIII interpreted Quo Primum as binding on them. (See Appendix A).
Now many Catholics who are “conservative” acknowledge these documents and agree that the old rites should be preserved but defend Vatican II and say that it never intended to change the rites and these are just abuses. Fr. Hesse will show that the second Vatican council did intend to change the rites and do have heresy in them. Therefore Vatican II must be rejected in total, not in each line as they do occasionally quote old Councils.
Due to many misunderstandings Fr. Hesse gives many theological definitions to assist the average lay person to understand the issues better before beginning a review of the Vatican II documents.
Objective vs Subjective:
Objective means something concerns the thing or object. Subjective means something concerns the person. When I make an objective judgement I judge facts or things or actions. When I make a subjective judgement I judge a person (which I do not want to do). Objective concerns the thing itself. Subjective means what something means to me. Pope Eugene IV in the Council of Florence (1441) pronounced that no one who is not subject to the Roman Pontiff, even if he thinks he sheds his blood for Christ, can be saved. The Pope makes an objective judgement. He does not say that all Protestants are in Hell. Objectively speaking they have no chance to enter heaven. Subjectively we do not know what the Lord will do with them. Two rules of the church: The church does not judge the dead. (De Mortuis Ecclesia non judica.) The church does not judge internal things (De internis Ecclesia non judica.).
Material vs. Formal:
Material means that something is there i.e. It exists. Formal means it is declared as such. If I say John Paul II is a material heretic, that means, he has all the matter of a heretic. It can be proven, that many of his writings, or things that he said, are heretical. I would not dare to say he is a heretic (formal) for no one can judge the Pope and no one can judge his intentions or conscience. I see heresy, it is there (material), but one cannot say it is formal heresy. For instance, the Pope will say “according to tradition…” and then he proceeds to say something wrong. An example of formal heresy would be if he should say something like “Contrary to what the Council of Trent says, I tell you…” some heresy.
Valid vs. Licit:
Valid means it takes place, it happens. Licit means that it is allowed or legal. For instance the Roman Catholic church has always recognized the fact that the Russian Orthodox Church has all seven sacraments, valid but not licit since they are heretics and schismatics. Heretic because they say the Pope is not infallible and schismatic because they say the Pope does not have the primacy.
Act and Potency: (entire philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas is based on this distinction).
Anything that is, can be in two ways, Actually or Potentially. The new philosophy / theology does not use these distinctions. When John Paul II says “all people are saved” is he correct? If he means potentially, then he is correct. If he means actually then he is in error. Our Lord says many go to the wide and broad way to hell. The Pope does not distinguish between act and potency.
Heresy, Schism, Error, Disobedience:
Schism means I separate myself from the Church, not denying anything of the faith itself but simply denying church authority. If I tell you not to do something that the Pope said was wrong then I just tell you what Pope Innocent III and Pope Pius IX said. If I tell you that you should not regard anything this Pope says then I would be leading you into schism. Do not deny the power of the Pope’s authority! Just as President Clinton is president and we cannot deny this but if he tells me to disregard the 10 commandments I tell him no. This is not denying his authority, it is simply not obeying an unjust command, since I do not reject his power to give commands, just the command itself. This is our present relationship to the Pope.
Heresy means to know but deny or doubt a defined doctrine of the Church.
Error means you may have a mistaken understanding of what the church teaches. (i.e. you are erroneous). If there is something the Pope should know then I talk about heresy. If there is something he clearly misunderstood then I have to talk about error, always judging objectively and materially.
Disobedience has nothing to do with Schism, Heresy or Error. When Archbishop Lefebvre consecrated bishops he at first glance appeared to be disobedient. (He was not disobedient because it was an unjust command he did not follow and it was certainly not against the will of Christ or the Church). In no way can one say he was in schism because he never denied the Popes right to give a command, he simply said I cannot follow this one command because it is unjust. This is explained in another lecture given by Fr. Hesse.
You must understand these distinctions otherwise you will not understand what I am about to say. Next we must go over what is know as Theological Positions (Thelochi Theologica). These are finer distinctions than heresy and error as well as Catholic truths.
De fide divina: By divine faith. That is it must be believed. These are such things as Canons of Council of Trent, Vatican I, etc. declare a dogma.
De fide Catolica: The church has always believed it. It is part of the faith (e.g. the creed).
De fide de finita: The church has always believed it but once in history a Pope has made a definition. (e.g. 1854 – Pope Pius IX proclaimed dogma of Immaculate Conception-this was always believed but was now defined on exactly what this was supposed to mean.
Fide Proxima: Close to the faith. It is not a dogma but the church has always believed it and it could be a dogma at any time. (e.g. Mary as Co-Redemptrix: Our Lady had first role in helping Our Lord in redemption, although only Jesus saves) This is a Sententia Fide Proxima, that is you may not deny it without fear of punishment from God.
Sententia Certa: It is not actually of the faith but we are very sure about it.
Sententia Communis: We may not be very sure about it but everyone says so, not in sense of democracy but in sense of historical accordance. Most of saints, theologians, Popes throughout centuries agreed on it.
Sententia Probabalis: It is probable. We don’t know exactly. (e.g. if a person in mortal sin dies and makes a perfect act of contrition the church teaches most probably he will be saved).
Heretical: directly denies dogma of the faith.
Heresy Proxima: does not literally deny a dogma but it coming pretty close to it.
Erroneous: It is not denying a dogma but just make a mistake about it.
Arrorea Proxima: It is not wrong in itself but by circumstances.
Temeraria: It is daring to say so. How dare you say it. It is Male Sonans (it does not sound good). It is offensive to pious ears. (Piario Aurreum Offensiva). It is scandalous when done in public.
Before starting a detailed examination of some of the scandalous documents of Vatican II, let me quote the Gospel.
“Who so shall offend one of these little ones that follow me it were better for him if a mill stone was hanged about his neck and he was drowned in the depths of the sea”.
Some ask why is Fr. Hesse not nice and kind. “Think not that I have come to send peace on earth. I have come not to send peace but a sword.”
Some say this Fr. Hesse is a rigorist. Let me quote another rigorist. “For verily I say unto you not one jot or one tittle shall in nowise pass from the law till all be fulfilled.” and “I am the way, the truth and the life”.
“But though we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you, than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed”.

Ranjith: communion on the tongue only and while kneeling
The Archbishop of Colombo in Sri Lanka, Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, has restored in his archdiocese the practice of communion on the tongue only and while kneeling. Last month, on the Feast of St. Joseph, he reiterated in an address to his clergy that this manner of receiving communion is mandatory for all of the faithful in his territory, even during outdoor Masses (emphasis mine):
May I also remind you once again that in all Churches and Chapels in the Archdiocese Holy Communion is to be administered only on the tongue and kneeling. This should be implemented as normal use even at Holy Mass celebrated with the participation of a big crowd outdoors.
On such occasions at least the youth and the children as well as the “youthful” should be called upon to kneel and receive the Lord. This is the most appropriate way of expressing our profoundest belief in the continuous and personal presence of the Lord in the most Sacred Host as we acclaim “down in adoration falling, lo! the Sacred Host we hail”. And in all our Churches, as an expression of that faith our people should be called upon to receive the Holy Communion, kneeling. And so kindly take steps to fix the altar rails and a cushion line fixed to the ground before the railing so that all could kneel and receive easily. It is also good for us to explain to our people about the teaching of the Church on the Most Holy Eucharist as found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church Nos. 1373-1381.
The Archbishop also announced that he will personally take charge of the effort to correct liturgical abuses regarding Mass vestments in the Archdiocese of Colombo:

God needs our suffering, to be used by virtue of the Communion of Saints, to assist other souls in their redemption.
God sends the heaviest crosses to those He calls His own,
And the bitterest drops of the chalice are reserved for His friends alone.
But the blood red drops are precious, and the crosses are all gain,
For Joy is bought with Sacrifice, and the price of love is Pain.

Imitation of Christ,
by Thomas a Kempis * * * "With respect to the life of perfection, it is just as you have grasped it this morning. Let people be guided by the book written by my very beloved son, Thomas a Kempis. He entitled his writings 'The Imitation of Christ,' by an order that I gave him, because he wrote these marvelous pages by the light of my spirit." -- Our Lord to Madre Concepcion: Nov. 14, 1973

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
"We most humbly beseech Thee Almighty God, to command that these offerings be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angel to Thine altar on high in the sight of Thy Divine Majesty, that as many of us as at this altar shall partake of and receive the most holy Body and Blood of Thy Son, may be filled with every heavenly blessing and grace. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen." -Supplices te Rogamus, from the Canon of the Mass (1962)
Pope Pius XII: "I hear all around me innovators who want to dismantle the Holy Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, throw away her ornaments, give her a remorse of her historical past. Well my dear friend, I have the conviction that the Church of Peter must assume her past or she will dig her own grave."
Selection from "Victorious Queen of the World," by Sister Natalia.
Why Is Peace Coming So Slowly?
Sr. N.: A priest asked me the above question and I received the following answer from the Blessed Virgin: "The age of world peace is not delayed! The Heavenly Father only wants to give time to those who are able to convert..."
Jesus said: "This world is obstinate in its wickedness, but I cannot repent of My love. The world has reached the point where wickedness itself begs for a stop."
Our Lady: My child! You should know, the fire ravaging the world, the fire of Satan, is permitted by My Father! By the destruction of this fire, good is separated from evil, and the good, tried and cleansed by the fire, become noble and even better. Tell this to all My children!"
The Confusion in the Church
Sr. N.: "The Lord Jesus let me know that just before the victory that will bring peace to the world, great confusion and terror will reign in the Church. The reason for this confusion will be the penetration of godlessness into the closed sanctuaries of the Church; tradition will be ruined and there will be worldliness everywhere. This calamity will go together with the hatred and enmity among nations that will result in the outbreak of many wars. I learned that many will attack the Church; their goal will be to alienate the faithful from the Church, take away their trust in her, so that they become free prey for Satan." [As Pope Paul VI said: "The smoke of Satan entered the Church."]
The Vision of the Coming Peace
Sr. N.: "I saw God's Holy Spirit, as a devastating fire, inundate the world. This fire did not bring peace, nor mercy, but devastating punishment. wherever the flame of the Holy Spirit swept through, the evil spirits by the thosands fell back to hell. Jesus showed me in a vision that after the cleansing, mankind will live an angelic and clean life. There will be an end to the sins against the sixth commandment, adultery, and an end to lies! The Saviour showed me that unceasing love, happiness and divine joy will signify this future clean world. When this glorious peace arrives and love reigns, there will be only one fold and one shepherd.
