misogynist Septuagint Council thoroughly edited the female
principle from the first official edition of the New
Testament, with the exception of a few polite mentions of
Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene (who may well have been
Jesus’ wife; the "heretical" 1970s paperback book The
Jesus Scroll makes that assertion). The Mother is not
so easily suppressed by ignorance, however, and she has
appeared to her devotees many times throughout Church
history, albeit at irregular intervals. She often makes
appointments for her next visit. She usually appears within
a globe of white light, wearing a dress and scarf, her feet
in a cloud, sometimes holding the infant Jesus. Lightning
and thunder, clouds of unusual shapes, and angels sometimes
accompany her manifestations. There were over 300 reported
apparitions of Mary in the 20th century alone. The
visitations reviewed here (in "chronological" order) include
interesting prophecies, some of which have come to pass.
The Venerable Mary of Agreda,
who lived in the 17th century, left this Marian message for us
"It was revealed to me that
through the intercession of the Mother of God, all heresies
will disappear. This victory over heresies has been reserved
by Christ for His Blessed Mother...Before the Second Coming of
Christ, Mary must, more than ever, shine in mercy, might and
grace in order to bring unbelievers into the Catholic Faith."
2. Our Lady of
La Salette ~
Maxime Giraud (L) &
Melanie Calvat (R)
The shepherdess Melanie Calvat
(1831-1940) was the daughter of a stonemason in La Salette,
France. On September 19, 1846, Melanie, then 14 years old, and
Maxime Giraud, age 11, were approaching a mountain stream near
when they saw a ball of light downhill from them, looking "as
though the sun had fallen there. A beautiful lady, all light
and flowers," appeared in the brilliant light and sat crying
on a stone. Then she levitated before Melanie and Maxime and
delivered a prophetic warning of a terrible future:
"France, Italy, Spain and England
will be at war. Blood will flow on the streets, Frenchmen will
fight Frenchmen and Italian against Italian and in the end
will come a war that will be terrible.
"For a period of time God will
not remember Italy or France for they will have forgotten the
Gospel. The evil ones will display all their malice and there
will be murders even in houses. At the first blow of the sword
of God which will fall, like lightning on humanity, the
mountains and all nature will tremble because the disorder and
the misdeeds of man will rise to the vault of heaven.
"Paris will be destroyed by fire
and Marseilles will be inundated by the sea, other great
cities will be destroyed by fire and razed to the ground. The
just will have to suffer much: their prayers, penitence, and
tears will rise to heaven; all the people of God will pray for
pardon and sing misericords, and they will come to Me for My
intercession and My help... There will be reconciliation
between God and man and peace. They will serve, adore, and
glorify Jesus Christ: love will blossom everywhere. The new
rulers will be the right arm of the holy Church, which will be
strong, humble, pious, poor, fervent, and a perfect imitator
of the virtue of Jesus Christ. The Gospel will be preached
everywhere and men will make great progress in the faith
because there will be union between the workers for Jesus
Christ and all who live in the fear of God.
"But this peace will not last for
long; twenty-five years of plenty will be almost forgotten and
the sins of men will be the cause of all the punishment which
will once again be meted out to Earth.
"A forerunner of Antichrist will
marshal an army drawn from all nations, united under his
banner. He will lead them in a bloody war against those still
faithful to the living God. He will shed much blood in
eradicating the cult of the living God and by taking His
place. Then there will be seen many types of punishment on
Earth besides the diseases and hunger which will be universal.
Wars will follow wars and the final one will be led by one of
the ten kings of Antichrist who will have only one will and
will be the only ones to rule in the world.
"Before this event the world will
have apparent peace and people will think of nothing but
pleasure and the bad ones will commit sins of all kinds. But
the sons of the Holy Church, the Sons of Faith, My perfect
imitators, will grow in the love of God and in all virtue,
under the guide of the Holy Spirit. I will fight on their side
until they arrive at the fullness of time.
"For the evil done by men even
Nature will cry out and earthquakes will occur in protest even
against those who have committed crimes on Earth. The Earth
will tremble and you yourself will also tremble of you, who
are dedicated to the service of Christ, yet inside only admire
yourselves. Tremble! The Lord is on the point of giving you
into the hands of your enemies, inasmuch as the holy places
are contaminated by corruption. Many convents are no longer
the houses of God, but pastures of "Asmodeus," that is of the
devil, impurity, and their followers.
"Thus the time will be reached in
which the Antichrist will be born of a Jewish nun, a false
virgin who will have intimate relations with the ancient
serpent, the master of luxury. His father will be a bishop. As
soon as he is born he will have teeth and pronounce
blasphemies; in a word he will be a born devil. He will emit
fearful cries, work miracles and wallow in luxury and
impurity. He will have brothers who are demons incarnate as he
will be, but sons of evil, and at the age of twelve years they
will distinguish themselves in brilliant victories. Almost all
of them will be the head of an armed force, supported by the
"The seasons will change their
characteristics, the Earth will be lit with a fiendish red
light; the water and the fire will cause terrible seismic
movements which will engulf mountains and cities.
"Rome will lose the Faith and
become the seat of the Antichrist. The demons allied to
Antichrist will operate on Earth and in the sky and Humanity
will become worse. But God will not give up his truly faithful
servants who are men of good will. The Gospel will be preached
everywhere to all the people and the nations will know the
"I make an urgent appeal to the
whole universe; I call the true disciples of God who lives and
reigns in the sky! I use my voice as the perfect imitator of
the Word Incarnate, Christ, the only Savior of men. I warn my
sons, those truly devoted to me, who are faithful to Me
because they lead me to My Son, whom I carried in My arms and
Who lives always in My Spirit. Lastly, I appeal to the
apostles of the last days, the disciples faithful to Jesus
Christ who wait for the rule Melanie will receive for them,
who lead a life despising the world and themselves and who
live in sight of a world in poverty and humility, in silence
and in self-effacement, in continual prayer and in
mortification, in love and in union with God in concealment
and in suffering.
"The time has come that you
should show yourselves to lighten the world. Go and show
yourselves, my beloved sons. I am with you and in you. While
your faith is the light which will help you in these days of
disappointment, your zeal will give you fame in the glory of
"Fight, Sons of light, you small
number who see, because the time of times, the final end, is
"The Church will be in the dark,
the world will be convulsed, but in this confusion Enoch and
Elijah will appear full in the spirit of God. They will
preach, and in their words will be the power of God, and men
of good will believe in God, and many spirits will be
consoled, in virtue of the Holy Spirit they will make great
progress and condemn the diabolical errors of Antichrist.
"Woe to the inhabitants of the
Earth. There will be sanquinary war, hunger, pestilence and
epidemics, terrible rains of insects, thunder which will shake
entire cities, earthquakes which will make entire regions
uninhabitable. Voices will be heard in the air, and men will
strike their heads against the wall, wishing for death, but
this will bring them, for their part, terrible torture. Blood
will flow everywhere. Who could ever report victory unless God
shortened the time of trial?
"Enoch and Elijah will be put to
death; pagan Rome will be destroyed and fire will fall from
heaven destroying three cities. The sun will be blackened and
only the Faith will survive.
"The time is at hand. The abyss
is opening: the king of darkness is watching, the beast is
watching with his subjects who will proclaim him "savior of
the world." He will rise into the air superbly to reach the
sky, but the breath of Archangel Michael will kill him. He
will fall back and the earth will shake without ceasing for
three days. It will then open its womb full of fire and the
best and his followers will be allowed into the eternal abyss
of inferno. Then water and fire will purify the earth to
destroy all human pride and everything will be renewed.
"If humanity is converted, stones
and rocks will become fertile and produce grain, and the
fields will give abundant harvest."
Another account of the apparition
adds the following admonitions:
"Come near, my children; do not
be afraid. I am here to tell you great news.
"If my people refuse to submit, I
will be forced to let go the arm of my son. It is so strong
and so heavy, I can no longer hold it back. How long a time I
have suffered for you! If I want my son not to abandon you, I
am obliged to plead with him constantly.
"All nature will tremble because
of the disorder and the misdeeds of men, which will rise to
the very heavens. During the period of the hollow peace, the
seasons will change.
"The peace among men which will
set in after the great scourge [WWII ?] will be only an
ostensible peace. During this period the earth will shake
because of manifold concussions and convulsions. Mankind will
experience continuous wars, which finally will lead to the
last great war.
"A period of peace will follow
(WWII implied) but only for the space of twenty-five years.
The forerunner of the Antichrist will assemble an army of men
drawn from many nations united under his banner. He will lead
them in a bloody war against those still faithful to the
"The seasons will be altered, the
earth will produce nothing but bad fruit; the stars will lose
their regular motion; the moon will only reflect a faint
reddish glow. Water and fire will give the earth's globe
convulsions, and terrible earthquakes which will swallow up
mountains and cities.
"If you have wheat, you must not
sow it. Anything you sow, the vermin will eat, and whatever
does grow will fall into dust when you thresh it. A great
famine is coming. Before the famine comes, children under
seven will be seized with trembling and die in the arms of
those who hold them. The rest will do penance through the
famine. The walnuts will become worm-eaten; the grapes will
"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 honors 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!
"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. Evil books will be abundant on earth and the spirits of
darkness will spread everywhere. 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. On occasion, 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 and will witness a frightful crisis.
Spiritual faith 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; all order and all
justice would be trampled underfoot and only homicides, hate,
jealousy, lies and dissension 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 he nor his
successor will see the triumph of God. All the civil
governments will have one and the same plan, which will be to
abolish and do away with every spiritual principle, making way
for materialism and vice of all kinds.
"The earth will be struck by
calamities of all kinds in addition to plague and famine which
will be wide-spread. There will be a series of wars until the
last war, which will then be fought by the ten Kings of the
Antichrist, all of whom will have one and the same plan and
will be the only rulers of the world. Before this comes to
pass, there will be a kind of false peace in the world. People
will think of nothing but amusement. The wicked will give
themselves over to all kinds of sin. But the children faith
will grow in their love for God and in all precious virtues.
Blessed are the souls humbly guided by the Holy Spirit! I
shall fight at their side until they reach a fullness of
"The Church will be in eclipse,
the world will be in dismay. Woe to the inhabitants of the
earth! There will be bloody wars and famines, plagues and
infectious diseases. It will rain with a fearful hail of
animals. There will be thunderstorms which will shake cities,
earthquakes which will swallow up countries. Voices will be
heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls,
call for their death, and on another side death will be their
torment. Blood will flow on all sides. Who will be the victor
if God does not shorten the length of the test? All the blood,
the tears and the prayers of the righteous: God will relent.
Enoch and Eli will be put to death. Pagan Rome will disappear.
The fire of Heaven will fall and consume three cities. All the
universe will be struck with terror.
"The earth, which will have been
in a continuous series of evolutions for three days, will open
up its fiery bowels; and then water and fire will purge the
earth and consume all the works of men's pride, and all will
be renewed. God will be served and glorified."
The Immaculate Lady appeared
on February 11, 1858 to Bernadette Soubirous, her sister Marie
and a friend, Pancho. The children were gathering firewood
when Bernadette heard sounds coming from the nearby grotto of
Massabielle. Bernadette went to investigate, and found a
rosebush moving as if it was being windblown (the air was
calm). A young, beautiful Lady appeared from a golden cloud in
the interior of the grotto and stood above the rosebush. She
beckoned to Bernadette to approach, and they prayed together.
Bernadette met Mary 18 times during the next 6 months, but she
did not know who she was until the last visitation, when Mary
"Que soy era Immaculado
Conceptiou" (I am the Immaculate Conception).
Mary instructed Bernadette to
dig a hole at a certain spot and to drink and bathe in it. The
hole became a spring, and Mary promised that it would heal
those who used its water. Thousands of cures have occurred
among the millions of visitors to Lourdes since then.
Mary requested that a chapel be
built in honor of her appearances there, but the local pastor
refused to believe that the apparitions were genuine. He
accused Bernadette of lying, and demanded that the apparition
perform a miracle by making the rosebush bloom. The
apparitions were determined to be genuine in 1862, and the
site has become one of the major pilgrimage sites of
Saint Bernadette Soubirous (Sr.
Marie-Bernarde, The Sleeping Saint of Nevers) died April 16,
1879. Her body now lies incorrupt in the chapel of the convent
of St.Gildard Sisters of Charity at Nevers. The Lady of
Lourdes promised Bernadette in 1858:
"I do not promise to make you
happy in this world, but in the next".
In September 1988. Father Don
Stefano Gobbi received the following messages by the Blessed
Virgin Mary concerning a period of 10 years of tribulation:
"Today you are corning from every
part of France to the foot of this rock upon which I appeared
as the Immaculate Conception, to hold your great cenacle of
prayer and fraternal sharing and to renew together the act of
consecration to my Immaculate Heart.
"From here I bless my Movement;
from here I bless each one of you; from here I bless the
Church and all humanity. You have entered into my times. On
this day, I am asking you to consecrate to me all the time
that still separates you from the end of this century of
"It is a period of ten years.
These are ten very important years. These are ten decisive
years. I am asking you to spend them with me because you are
entering into the final period of the second Advent, which
will lead you to the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the
glorious coming of my Son Jesus.
"In this period of ten years
there will come to completion that fullness of time which was
pointed out to you by me, beginning with La Salette all the
way to my most recent and present apparitions.
"In this period of ten years
there will come to its culmination that purification which,
for a number of years now, you have been living through and
therefore the sufferings will become greater for all.
"In this period of ten years
there will come to completion the time of the great
tribulation, which has been foretold to you in Holy Scripture,
before the second coming of Jesus.
"In this period of ten years the
mystery of iniquity, prepared for by the ever increasing
spread of apostasy, will become manifest.
"In this period of ten years all
the secrets which I have revealed to some of my children will
come to pass and all the events which have been foretold to
you by me will take place.
"Therefore I am asking you today
to consecrate to me all this period of time, as though it were
a more extended and continuous Marian Year. Open to me the
doors of your hearts and let me work in you. Open to me the
doors of your families, of your parishes, of your religious
houses and let the immaculate light of my presence enter in.
"Multiply your cenacles of prayer
and live in the greatest trust and filial abandonment to me,
without allowing yourselves to be seized by vain curiosity to
know what is awaiting you.
"May the water of divine mercy
purify you of every sin and make of you new buds for the era
of grace and of holiness which, in my Immaculate Heart, I am
preparing for you each day.
"From this most venerated shrine
of mine, I bless you all."
"St. Giovanni Bosco (1815-1888),
the patron of editors and homeless children, founded the
religious order of the Salesians (Society of St. Francis de
Sales) in 1859. Don Bosco, as he was better known, was devoted
to serving homeless children. He was ordained in 1934. He was
also devoted to the Virgin Mary ("The August Queen of
Heaven"), who graced him with some prophecies. St. John,
"Do not call me a prophet until
the things I have foretold have come to pass."
His predictions especially
concern the Catholic Church and the Papacy, which will be
forced to evacuate Rome when "Cossack horses will drink from
St. Peter's fountain." The following is his most famous
"War comes from the south, peace
from the north. French laws no longer recognize the Creator,
but the Creator will make himself recognized and will visit
her thrice with the rod of his wrath. In the first visit he
breaks her pride by conquest, plundering ruined harvest and
butchery of men and beasts.
"In the second visit the great
prostitute of Babylon, which makes decent people sigh and call
the Brothel of Europe, will be left without a leader and will
be a victim of disorder.
"Paris! Paris! Instead of arming
yourself in the name of the Lord, you fortify with Houses of
Immorality. They will be destroyed by you yourself. Your idol,
the Pantheon, will be burnt to ashes in order that this may
come true: "violence, uttereth lies against me." Your enemies
will reduce you to want, to hunger, to fear, and will make you
the abomination of nations. Ah, woe to you, if you do not
recognize the hand that strikes you! I want to punish
immorality, the despising of, and the contempt for My Law,
says the Lord.
"In the third visit you will fall
into the hands of foreigners. Your enemies standing afar off
will behold your palaces in flames. Your homes will become a
heap of ruins with the blood of your heroes who are no more.
"But there will come a great
warrior from the North carrying a banner and on the right hand
that supports it is written: "The Irresistible Hand of the
Lord." At that very moment there went out to meet him the
Venerable Old Man of Lazio, holding aloft a brilliantly
glowing torch. The banner then increased in size and turned
from black to snow-white. In the middle of the banner, in
letters of gold, there was written the name of Him who is able
to do all things. The warrior with his men bowed and shook
hands with the Venerable Old Man.
"Now Heaven's voice is addressed
to the Shepherd of shepherds. You are now in conference with
your advisors. The enemy of the good does not stand idle one
moment. He studies and practices all his arts against you. He
will sow discord among your consultors; he will raise up
enemies amongst my children. The powers of the world will
belch forth fire, and they would that the words be suffocated
in the throats of the custodians of my law. That will not
happen, they will do no harm but to themselves. You must
hurry. If you cannot untie the knots, cut them. If you find
yourself hard pressed, do not give up but continue until the
head of the hydra of error is cut off. This stroke will make
the world and Hell beneath it tremble, but the world will be
safe and all the good will rejoice. Keep your consultors
always with you, even if only two. Wherever you go, continue
and bring to an end the work entrusted to you. The days fly
by, your years will reach the destined number; but the great
Queen will ever be your help, as in times past, so in the
future She will always be the exceeding great fortress of the
"Ah, but you, Italy, land of
blessings! Who has steeped you in desolation! Blame not your
enemies, but rather your friends. Can you not hear your
children asking for the bread of faith and finding only those
who smash it to pieces? What shall I do? I shall strike the
shepherds, I shall disperse the flock, until those sitting on
the throne of Moses search for good pastures and the flock
listens attentively and is fed.
"Of the flock and over the
shepherds My hand will weigh heavy. Famine, pestilence, and
war will be such that mothers will have to cry on account of
the blood of their sons and of their martyrs dead in a hostile
"And to you, Rome, what will
happen! Ungrateful Rome, effeminate Rome, proud Rome! You have
reached such a height that you search no further. You admire
nothing else in your Sovereign except luxury, forgetting that
you and your glory stands upon Golgotha. Now he is old,
defenseless, and despoiled; and yet at his word, the word of
one who was in bondage, the whole world trembles.
"Rome! To you I will come four
"The first time, I shall strike
your lands and the inhabitants thereof.
"The second time, I shall bring
the massacre and the slaughter even to your very walls. And
will you not yet open your eyes?
"I shall come a third time and I
shall beat down to the ground your defenses and the defenders,
and at the command of the Father, the reign of terror, of
dreadful fear, and of desolation shall enter into your city.
'But My wise men have now fled
and My law is even now trampled underfoot. Therefore I will
make a fourth visit. Woe to you if My law shall still be
considered as empty words. There will be deceit and falsehood
among both the learned and the ignorant. Your blood and that
of your children will wash away your stains upon God's law.
War, pestilence and famine are the rods to scourge men's pride
and wickedness. O wealthy men, where is your glory now, your
estates, your palaces? They are the rubble on the highways and
"And your priests, why have you
not run to "cry between the vestibule and the Altar," begging
God to end these scourges? Why have you not, with the shield
of faith, gone upon the housetops, into the homes, along the
highways and byways, into every accessible corner to carry the
seed of My word? Know you that this is the terrible two-edged
sword that cuts down My enemies and breaks the Anger of God
and of men?
"These things must come one after
another. They are inexorable.
"Things are happening too slowly.
"But the August Queen of Heaven
"The power of the Lord is in His
hands. He scatters His enemies as a cloud.
"The Venerable Old Man attires
himself in all his ancient raiment.
"There will come a violent
"Iniquity is consummated. Sin
will have its end. And before two full moons of the month of
flowers will have run their course, the rainbow of peace will
rise above the earth.
"The Great Minister will see the
bride of his King arrayed in festive fashion.
"Throughout the world the sun
will appear so luminous that the likes of which never has been
seen since the tongues of fire descended on the Cenacle until
this day, nor will such a sun ever be seen again until the
very last of days.
"It was a dark night. Men could
no longer tell which way to take in order to return to their
homes. Suddenly there appeared in the heavens a very bright
light that illuminated the steps of the travelers as though it
was midday. At that moment there was seen a host of men and
women, of young and old, of nuns, monks and priests with the
Holy Father at the head. They were going out from the Vatican
and were arranging themselves in line for a procession.
"And then there came a furious
storm which clouded that light somewhat and made it appear
that light and darkness were engaged in battle. In the
meantime they arrived at a little square covered with dead and
wounded, some of whom cried aloud and asked for help.
Very many were dropping out of
the line of procession. After having walked for a time that
would correspond to two hundred risings of the sun they
realized that they were no longer in Rome. Struck with fear
they all ran to the Holy Father to defend him personally and
to attend to his wants. Instantly two angels were seen
carrying a banner; they presented it to the Holy Father and
"Receive the banner of He Who
fights and scatters the strongest armies of the world. Your
enemies are dispersed. Your children with tears and sighs beg
you to return."
Looking at the banner one could
see written on one side, "Queen conceived without sin," and on
the other side, "Help of Christians."
The Holy Father joyfully took the
banner, but looking closely at the small number of those who
remained with him, he became very sad. The two angels
"Go quickly and console your
children. Write your brothers dispersed throughout the world
that there must be a reform in the morals of men. That cannot
be obtained except by distributing to the people the bread of
the Divine Word. Catechize the children, preach the detaching
of the heart from the things that are of the earth. The time
has come," concluded the two angels, "when the poor shall
evangelize the people. Vocations will come from among those
working with the spade, the ax, the hammer to the end that
they fulfill the words of David: God has raised up the poor
from the land in order to place them on the thrones of the
princes of His people."
Having heard that, the Holy
Father began the march. The farther he went the greater did
the procession behind increase. When finally he set foot in
the Holy City, he wept bitter tears for the distress in which
he found the people and the large number now missing. As he
entered St. Peter's he intoned the "Te Deum" to which a choir
of angels replied singing:
"Glory to God in the highest and
on earth peace to men of good will."
With the end of the hymn there
came an end to the thick darkness and the sun shone with a
brightness all its own. The cities, the towns, and villages
were thinly populated. The land had been leveled down as if by
a hurricane, by a tempest, and a hailstorm. People went from
one to another saying in tones of great emotion:
"There is a God in Israel."
"From the beginning of the exile
until the singing of the 'Te Deum', the sun rose in the East
two hundred times. The time that passed for the fulfilling of
these things corresponds to four hundred risings of the sun."
The following prophecy (excerpted
from a longer version) was given to St. Bosco by the Queen of
"In the midst of this endless
sea, two solid columns, a short distance apart, soar high into
the sky. One is surmounted by a statue of the Immaculate
Virgin, at whose feet a large inscription reads Auxilium
Christianorum (Help of Christians). The other, far loftier and
sturdier, supports a Host of proportionate size, and bears
beneath is the inscription Salus credentium (Salvation of
"The flagship commander -- the
Roman Pontiff -- standing at the helm, strains every muscle to
steer his ship between the two columns, from whose summits
hang many anchors and strong hooks linked to chains. The
entire enemy fleet closes in to intercept and sink the
flagship at all costs. They bombard it with everything they
have: books and pamphlets, incendiary bombs, firearms,
cannons. The battle rages ever more furious. Beaked prows ram
the flagship again and again, but to no avail, as unscathed
and undaunted, it keeps on its course. At times, a formidable
ram splinters a gaping hole in its hull, but immediately, a
breeze from the two columns instantly seals the gash.
"Meanwhile, enemy cannons blow
up; firearms and beaks fall to pieces; ships crack up and sink
to the bottom. In blind fury, the enemy takes to hand-to-hand
combat, cursing and blaspheming. Suddenly the Pope falls,
seriously wounded. He is instantly helped up, but struck a
second time, dies. A shout of victory rises from the enemy,
and wild rejoicing sweeps their ships. But no sooner is the
Pope dead than another takes his place. The captains of the
auxiliary ships elected him so quickly that the news of the
Pope's death coincides with that of his successor’s election.
The enemy's self-assurance wanes.
"Breaking through all resistance,
the new Pope steers his ship safely between the two columns;
first, to the one surmounted by the Host, and then the other,
topped by the statue of the Virgin. At this point, something
unexpected happens. The enemy ships panic and disperse,
colliding with and scuttling each other.
"Some auxiliary ships, which had
gallantly fought alongside their flagship, are the first to
tie up at the two columns. Many others, which had fearfully
kept far away from the fight, stand still, cautiously waiting
until; the wrecked enemy ships vanish under the waves. Then
they too head for the two columns, tie up at the swinging
hooks and ride safe and tranquil beside their flagship. A
great calm now covers the sea."
St. John Bosco reiterated his
prediction in 1862:
"There will be an Ecumenical
Council in the next century, after which there will be chaos
in the Church. Tranquility will not return until the Pope
succeeds in anchoring the boat of Peter between the twin
pillars of Eucharistic Devotion and Devotion to Our Lady. This
will come about one year before the end of the century."
On May 13, 1917, in a field
called Cova da Iria near the Portuguese village of Fatima, "a
beautiful lady from Heaven", shining like the sun and standing
on a cloud over a beech tree, appeared to three children:
Lucia Dos Santos (age 10) and her two cousins, Francisco (9)
and Jacinta Marti (7). Lucia saw and heard the Madonna and
spoke with her. Jacinta also saw and heard her, but did not
speak, and Francisco only saw the Virgin. The radiant being
spoke with the children for several minutes, and asked them to
meet her again at the same place on the 13th of each month
until October. Then, she promised, she would identify herself.
The Madonna reappeared six times
in all, and the reports of the events drew increasing crowds
of spectators. About 50 persons attended on June 13, and
nearly 70,000 were present on October 13. Many witnesses saw a
bright cloud over the beech tree, but only the three children
could see and hear the woman.
At the behest of a group of
political activists and doubters who wished to "put an end to
the nonsense," the civil prefect of Outrem seized,
interrogated and threatened the children for two days in the
hope of forcing a confession of fraud from them. Though the
children had been prevented from meeting the Madonna on August
13, she appeared to them on August 19 at Valinhos, near the
site of her first appearance. The Madonna then told them that
she would appear a final time on October 13, and then produce
On that day the Madonna
transmitted the prophecy known as the Secret of Our Lady of
the Rosary. It was a rainy day, but newspaper journalists who
were eyewitnesses reported that the rain stopped suddenly and
the sun reappeared. In the words of A. Garret, a professor at
Coimbra University, the sun looked like "a burnished wheel cut
out of mother of pearl. This disc spun dizzily around... It
whirled upon itself with mad rapidity, then advanced, blood
red, towards the Earth, threatening to crush us with its
weight." Terrified spectators fell to their knees in prayer.
The sun returned to normal, then twice again repeated the
prodigy. In addition, the rain-soaked clothes of the audience
dried out during the brief time of the solar phenomenon.
The Solar Miracle at
The Secret of Our Lady of the
Rosary is a three-part prophecy that she ordered to be kept
secret for 25 years or until the death of Lucia, whichever
came first. Francisco and Jacinta died in the influenza
pandemic that ravaged Europe in 1918 and 1919. Lucia became a
Dorothe Sister, and in 1948 she became a Barefoot Carmelite in
a closed convent at Coimbra. Lucia learned to write, and
recorded the text of the secret prophecy. This was kept in the
Bishopric of Leiria until 1943, when Pope Pius XII revealed
the first two parts through the agency of Cardinal Schuster.
The final, secret part of the prophecy was opened by Pope John
XXIII and several cardinals in 1960, according to the
Madonna's directions, but it was not revealed to the public.
The first section is a vision of Hell. The second part
predicts World War II. The following segment was published
with Papal approval:
"If you do what I tell you, many
souls will be saved and we shall have peace. The war is coming
to an end; but it does not cease to offend the Lord, and
another, more terrible one will break out. When you see a
night lit up by an unknown light, you will know that it the
great sign that God gives you of the next punishment of the
sins of the world with war, famine, and persecution against
the Church and against the Holy Father.
"In order to prevent this, I have
some to intercede for the consecration of Russia to my
Immaculate Heart and the communion of the first Sabbaths.
"If you carry out my demands,
Russia will be converted and there will be peace. Otherwise
the errors will be spread around the world, provoking war and
persecution against the Church; many good people will become
martyrs, the Holy Father will suffer much; many nations will
"But in the end my Immaculate
Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia for
me, which will be converted and the world will be granted a
period of peace..."
The "great sign", "a night lit up
by an unknown light," occurred on January 25, 1938. It has
been explained as an unusual aurora borealis. World War II
began soon afterward.
The secret section of the
prophecy of Our Lady of the Rosary was leaked by Pope John
XXIII to certain Roman Catholic officials and world leaders of
the USA, USSR, and Britain. On October 15, 1963, the German
journal News Europe published the alleged text of the secret
portion of the Fatima Prophecy. The text cannot be verified,
but it is widely accepted as being genuine:
"Have no fear, little one. I am
the Mother of God who speaks to you and asks you to publish
the message I am going to give you to the whole world. You
will find strong resistance while you do so. Listen well and
pay attention to what I tell you.
"Men must be set on the right
road once more. With suppliant humility, men must seek
forgiveness for sins committed already and for sins which will
be committed. You wish me to give you a sign, so that everyone
will accept My Words, which I am saying through you, to the
human race. I have seen the Prodigy of the Sun and all
believers, unbelievers, peasants, countrymen, wise men,
journalists, laics and priests, all have seen it. And now I
proclaim in my name: A great punishment shall fall on the
entire human race, not today and not tomorrow, but in the
second half of the 20th century! I have already revealed to
the children Melanie and Maximime at La Salette, and today I
repeat it to you for the human race has sinned and has
trampled down the Gift which I have made. In no part of the
world is life in order, Satan rules in the highest position,
laying down how things should be done. He will effectually
succeed in bringing his influence right up to the top of the
Church; succeed in seducing the spirits of the great
scientists who invent the arms. And if humanity opposes me I
shall be obliged to free the arm of My Son. Now I see that God
will punish man with a severity that has not been used since
"The time of times will come and
everything will come to an end if humanity is not converted,
and if things remain as they are now or get worse, the great
and powerful men will perish just as will the small and weak.
"For the Church, too, the time of
its greatest trial will come. Cardinals will oppose cardinals
and bishops against bishops. Satan will march in their midst
and there will be great changes at Rome. What is rotten will
fall, never to rise again. The Church will be darkened and the
world will shake with terror. The time will come when no king,
emperor, cardinal or bishop will await Him who will, however,
come, but in order to punish according to the designs of my
"A great war will break out in
the second half of the 20th century [not...]. Fire and smoke
will fall from heaven, and waters of the oceans will become
vapors, the scum will arise in a confused manner, and
everything will sink down. Millions and millions of men will
perish while this is going on and those who survive will envy
the dead. The unexpected will follow in every part of the
world, anxiety, pain and misery in every country. Have I seen
it? The time is getting ever nearer and the abyss is getting
wider without hope. The good will perish with the bad, the
great with the small, the Heads of the Church with their
faithful, and the rulers with their people. There will be
death everywhere as a result of the mistakes of the unfeeling
and the partisans of Satan, but when those who survive all
these happenings are still alive, they will proclaim God once
again and His Glory, and will serve Him as in the time when
the world was not so perverted.
"Go, my little one and proclaim
it. For that purpose I shall always be at your side to help
The following version of the
third prophecy of Fatima has been in circulation since about
1985, and published in various newspapers and magazines:
"A great plague will befall
mankind in the year 2000. Nowhere in the world will there be
order, and Satan will rule the highest places, determining the
way of things. Satan will even succeed in asserting himself at
the top of the Church.
"He will succeed in seducing the
spirits of the great scientists who invent arms, with which it
will be possible to destroy a large part of mankind in a few
minutes. Satan will have in his power the leaders who command
the people and who will incite them to produce enormous
quantities of arms.
"God will punish man more
thoroughly than with the Flood. There will come the time of
all times and the end of all ends. The great and the powerful
will perish together with the small and weak.
"Even for the Church, it will be
the time of its greatest trial. Cardinals will oppose
cardinals, bishops will oppose bishops. Satan will walk in
their midst and in Rome there will be great changes. The
Church will be darkened and the world will be shaking with
"A huge war will erupt: fire and
smoke will fall from the sky. The waters of the ocean will
become mist, and the foam will rise to tremendous heights and
everyone will drown.
"Millions and millions of men
will die from hour to hour. Whoever remains alive will envy
the dead. Everywhere one turns one's glance there will be
anguish and misery, ruins in every country.
"The time draws nearer, the abyss
widens without hope. The good will perish with the bad, the
great with the small, the princes of the church with the
faithful, the rulers with their people.
"There will be death everywhere
because of the errors committed by the crazed and the
followers of Satan, who will then and only then rule the
"At the last, those who survive
will at every chance newly proclaim God and His glory and they
will serve Him as when the world was not so perverted."
On her death-bed (February 1920),
Jacinta told Mother Godinho:
"There is a secret of Heaven and
one of earth, and the latter is terrifying. It will seem as
though it were already the end of the world. And in this
cataclysm everything will be separated from the sky, which
will turn white as snow."
In 1981 while visiting in
Fulda, Germany, Pope John Paul II was asked about the secret
message of Fatima. He answered:
"Due to the seriousness of the
contents of the Fatima secret, my predecessors in the Throne
of Peter have preferred to postpone the publication.
Furthermore, it may be enough to the christian people to know
that, if there is a message saying that the oceans will flood
whole parts of the globe, and millions of people will die,
from a minute to another, it is not really the case to will
the publication of this secret message."
In an interview with Sr. Lucia
with Cardinal Ricardo Vidal in 1993, Sr. Lucia commented on
the secret prophecy:
"The triumph of the Immaculate
Heart of Mary also refers to (her victory over) the errors
that were being spread by Russia... Our Lady's Immaculate
Heart triumphed over the errors that were being spread by
Communist Russia. The Consecration of 1984 prevented an atomic
war that would have occurred in 1985... The `era of peace'
does not refer to a civil peace but rather to a peace that we
are now living with the end of the spread of the errors of
Fr. Joseph de Ste. Marie, who
served as Fatima expert to Pope John Paul II, said:
"Let there be no hysteria
concerning dates or concerning expectation of chastisements.
The dates are unknown, the chastisement certain."
Pope John Paul II was nearly
assassinated on May 13, 1981 (the anniversary of Mary’s first
apparitional appearance at Fatima). The gun was aimed at the
Pope’s head, but Agca had to aim for his abdomen instead when
the pontiff turned to a young girl who was wearing a picture
of Our Lady of Fatima. While he was in the hospital, Pope John
Paul reviewed the Church’s documentation of Fatima, and he
read the secret Third Secret of Fatima. In 1984 the Pope
consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Communism
collapsed soon afterward.
The Vatican released its official
document, "The Message of Fatima", in June 2000. It includes
the first and second parts of the "secret" of Fatima as
written by Sr. Lucia on August 31, 1941, and a photostatic
copy of the original manuscript of the third part of the
secret, and comments by Sr. Lucia from conversation with
Archbishops Bertone and Ferreira in April 2000 in the Carmel
Monastery of St. Teresa of Coimbra in Portugal. Bertone noted:
"As is well known, Pope John Paul
II immediately thought of consecrating the world to the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and he himself composed a prayer for
what he called an 'Act of Entrustment' which was to be
celebrated in the Basilica of St. Mary Major on June 7, 1981."
Sodano said that the secret
contained a prophetic vision similar to those found in the
Bible, but the events to which the third part of the Secret of
Fatima refers now seem part of the past:
"That text contains a prophetic
vision similar to those found in Sacred Scripture, which do
not describe with photographic clarity the details of future
events, but rather synthesize and condense against a unified
background events spread out over time in a succession and a
duration which are not specified. As a result, the text must
be interpreted in a symbolic key.
"The vision of Fatima concerns
above all the war waged by atheist systems against the Church
and Christians, and it describes the immense suffering endured
by the witnesses to the faith in the last century of the
second millennium. It is an interminable Way of the Cross led
by the Popes of the twentieth century.
"According to the interpretation
of the 'little shepherds,' which was also recently confirmed
by Sister Lucia, the 'bishop clothed in white' who prays for
all the faithful is the Pope. As he makes his way with great
effort towards the Cross amid the corpses of those who were
martyred (bishops, priests, men and women religious and many
lay persons), he too falls to the ground, apparently dead,
under a burst of gunfire.
"After the assassination attempt
of May 13 1981, it appeared evident to His Holiness that it
was 'a motherly hand which guided the bullet's path,' enabling
the 'dying Pope' to halt 'at the threshold of death.' On the
occasion of a visit to Rome by the then bishop of
Leiria-Fatima, the Pope decided to give him the bullet which
had remained in the jeep after the assassination attempt, so
that it might be kept in the Shrine. At the behest of the
bishop, the bullet was later set in the crown of the statue of
Our Lady of Fatima.
"The successive events of 1989
led, both in the Soviet Union and in a number of countries of
Eastern Europe, to the fall of the Communist regime which
promoted atheism. For this too His Holiness offers heartfelt
thanks to the Most Holy Virgin. In other parts of the world,
however, attacks against the Church and against Christians,
together with the burden of suffering which they involve,
tragically continue. Even if the events to which the third
part of the Secret of Fatima refers now seem part of the past,
Our Lady's call to conversion and penance, issued at the
beginning of the twentieth century, remains timely and urgent
today. 'The Lady of the message seems to read the signs of the
times - the signs of our time - with special insight... The
insistent invitation of Mary Most Holy to penance is nothing
but the manifestation of her maternal concern for the fate of
the human family, in need of conversion and forgiveness.'
"In order that the faithful may
better receive the message of Our Lady of Fatima, the Pope has
charged the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith with
making public the third part of the secret, after the
preparation of an appropriate commentary."
The following official Vatican
version is alleged to be the complete translation of the
original Portuguese text of the third part of the secret of
Fatima that was revealed to the three pastorinhos children on
July 13, 1917 at Cova da Iria-Fatima, as written by Sr. Lucia
on January 3, 1944:
"I write in obedience to you, my
God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop
of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine.
"After the two parts which I have
already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above,
we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand;
flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would
set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the
splendor that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right
hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel
cried out in a loud voice: 'Penance, Penance, Penance!' And we
saw in an immense light that is God: 'something similar to how
people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a
Bishop dressed in White 'we had the impression that it was the
Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious
going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big
Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark;
before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big
city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step,
afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the
corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the
mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was
killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at
him, and in the same way there died one after another the
other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various
lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two
arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal
aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood
of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were
making their way to God."
Sr. Lucia & Pope
John Paul II
6. Our Lady of
In June of 1961, The Virgin Mary
appeared to four girls (Conchita Gonzales, Mari Loli Mazon,
Jacinta Gonzalez, and Mari Cruz Gonzalez, ages 11-12) near the
village of San Sebastian de Garabandal in the Cantabrian
Mountains of northwest Spain. The girls were praying together
when they heard a thunderous sound and saw a beautiful angel.
It said nothing, then disappeared. The girls ran to the
village church and told everyone about the occurence. The
angel appeared to them several more times before it announced
that the Blessed Virgin would appear to them. Later that day
she appeared in the company of two angels with an all-seeing
eye above her. She visited the girls more than 2,000 times in
the next four years. The apparition repeatedly urged
repentance, and said that a miraculous sign will appear some
day. Conchita wrote this about it in her Diary:
"I am the only one to whom the
Blessed Virgin spoke of the miracle. She forbade me to say
what it will consist of. I can't announce the date either
until eight days before it is due to occur. What I can reveal
is that it will coincide with an event in the Church and with
the feast of a saint, martyr of the Eucharist; that it will
take place at 8:30 on a Thursday evening; that it will be
visible to all those who are in the village and surrounding
the mountains; that the sick who are present will be cured,
and the incredulous will believe. It will be the greatest
miracle that Jesus will have performed for the world. There
won't be the slightest doubt that it comes from God and that
it is for the good of mankind. A sign of the Miracle, which it
will be possible to film or televise, will remain forever.
"The Warning, like the
Chastisement, is a fearful thing for the good as well as the
wicked. It will draw the good closer to God and warn the
wicked that the end of times are coming... The Warning is
something that is seen in the air, everywhere in the world and
is immediately transmitted into the interior of our souls. It
will last a very little time, but it will seem a very long
time because of its effect within us. It would be like fire.
It will not burn our flesh, but we will feel it bodily and
interiorly... [It will be] like two stars that crash and make
a lot of noise, and a lot of light but they don't fall. It's
not going to hurt us but we're going to see it and, in that
moment, we're going to see our consciences."
The event will occur between
March 8-May16 on a Thursday at 8:30 p.m. (Garabandal time),
within a year of the Warning foretold by Our Lady of Fatima.
Conchita will be warned of the event 8 days beforehand. It
will occur on the feast day of a Eucharist martyr, and it will
coincide with a "great event" in the Church.
The following message from Mary
is excerpted from Conchita’s notes:
"The Virgin told me about this on
January 1st, 1965, up in the pine grove. I cannot say what it
will consist of, because she did not command me to do so. And,
as for when it is going to be, she did not tell me, so I do
not know. What I do know is that it will be visible to
everybody; it will be a direct work of God and will take place
before the miracle. I do not know whether people will die
because of it. They could only die from the shock of seeing
"The Virgin told only me about
the miracle. She forbade me to say what it will consist of. I
cannot reveal the date either until eight days beforehand.
What I am allowed to say is that it will coincide with an
event in the Church, and with the feast of a Saint who is a
martyr of the Holy Eucharist; it will be at half-past eight on
a Thursday evening; it will be visible to everybody in the
village and on the surrounding mountainsides; the sick who are
present will be cured and the incredulous will believe. It
will be the greatest miracle that Jesus has worked for the
world. There will not remain the slightest doubt that it comes
from God and is for the good of mankind. In the pine grove, a
sign of the miracle will be left forever. It will be possible
to film and televise it...
"The punishment is conditioned to
whether or not mankind heeds the Blessed Virgin's messages and
the miracle. If it does take place, then I know what it will
consist of, because the Virgin told me, but I am not allowed
to say. What is more, I have seen the punishment. What I can
assure you is that, if it comes, it is far worse than if we
were enveloped in fire; worse than if we had fire above us,
and fire beneath. I do not know how long a time will elapse
after the miracle, before God sends it."
In 1962, the Blessed Virgin told
Conchita a prophecy of the popes; according to her, Pope John
Paul II will be the last pope:
"There would be two more popes
after Pope Paul VI and that one of the popes would have a very
short reign. After that would come the end times but not the
end of the world."
Conchita made this announcement
on September 14, 1965:
"The sign that will remain
forever at the pines is something we will be able to
photograph, televise, and see, but not touch. It will be
evident that it is not a thing of this world but from God."
Manifestation of the
Eucharist on Conchita's Tongue:
The stigmata of the Capuchin
priest Padre Pio da Pietrelcina (1887-1968) bled about a cup
of blood daily for 50 years. He also transmitted the following
Marian prophecies, excerpted from a letter to the Commission
of Heroldsbach, appointed by the Vatican to investigate his
"My son, My son, I have been
longing for this hour in which I again shall reveal to you the
great love of My heart... Pray and make reparation to Me.
Admonish others to do the same because the time is near at
hand in which I shall visit My unfaithful people because they
have not heeded the time of My grace. Persevere in prayer, so
that your adversary shall have no dominion over you. Tell My
people to be prepared at all times, for My judgment shall come
upon them suddenly and when least expected -- and not one
shall escape My hands, I shall find them all! I shall protect
the just. Watch the sun and moon and the stars of the Heavens.
When they appear to be unduly disturbed and restless, know
that the day is not far away. Stay united in prayer and
watching until the angel of destruction has passed your doors.
Pray that these days will be shortened." (1949)
"Pray! Make reparation! Be
fervent and practice mortifications. Great things are at
stake! Pray! Men are running toward the abyss of Hell in great
rejoicing and merry-making, as though they were going to a
masquerade ball or the wedding feast of the devil himself!
Assist Me in the salvation of souls. The measure of sin is
filled! The day of revenge, with its terrifying happenings is
near -- nearer then you can imagine! And the world is seeping
in false security! The Divine Judgment shall strike them like
a thunderbolt! These Godless and wicked people shall be
destroyed without mercy, as were the inhabitants of Sodom and
Gomorra of old. Yes, I tell you their wickedness was not as
great as that of our human race today! (Jan.23, 1950)
"Keep your windows well-covered.
Do not look out. Light a blessed candle, which will suffice
for many days. Pray the Rosary. Read spiritual books. Make
acts of Spiritual Communion, also acts of love, which are so
pleasing to Us. Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on
the ground, in order that many souls may be saved. Do not go
outside the house. Provide yourself with sufficient food. The
powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make
people tremble with fear. Have courage! I am in the midst of
you." (Jan. 28, 1950)
"Take care of the animals during
these days. I am the creator and preserver of animals as well
as man. I shall give you a few signs beforehand, at which time
you should place more food before them. I will preserve the
property of the elect, including the animals, for they shall
be in need of sustenance afterwards as well. Let no one go
across the yard, even to feed the animals-he who steps outside
will perish! Cover your windows carefully. My elect shall not
see My wrath. Have confidence in Me, and I will be your
"Hurricanes of fire will pour
forth from the clouds and spread over the entire earth!
Storms, bad weather, thunderbolts and earthquakes will cover
the earth for two days. An uninterrupted rain of fire will
take place! It will begin on during a very cold night. All
this is to prove that God is the Master of Creation. Those who
hope in Me, and believe in My words, have nothing to fear
because I will not forsake them, nor those who spread My
message. No harm will come to those who are in the state of
grace and who seek My Mother's protection.
"That you may be prepared for
these visitations, I will give you the following signs and
instructions: The night will be very cold. The wind will roar.
After a time thunderbolt will be heard. Lock all the doors and
windows. Talk to no one outside the house. Kneel down before a
crucifix, be sorry for your sins, and beg My Mothers
protection. Do not look during the earthquake, because the
anger of God is holy! Jesus does not want us to behold the
anger of God, because God's anger must be contemplated with
fear and trembling.
"Those who disregard this advice
will be killed instantly. The wind will carry with it
poisonous gases which will be diffused over the entire earth.
Those who suffer and die innocently will be martyrs and they
will be with Me in My Kingdom. Satan will triumph! But in
three nights, the earthquake and fire will cease. On the
following day the sun will shine again, angels will descend
from Heaven and will spread the spirit of peace over the
earth. A feeling of immeasurable gratitude will take
possession of those who survive this most terrible ordeal, the
impending punishment, with which God will visit the earth
"I have chosen souls in other
countries too, such as Belgium, Switzerland, Spain, who have
received these revelations so that other countries also may be
prepared. Pray Rosary, but pray it well, so that your prayers
may reach Heaven. Soon a more terrible catastrophe shall come
upon the entire world, such as never before has been
witnessed, a terrible chastisement never before experienced!
"How unconcerned men are
regarding these things! Which shall so soon come upon them,
contrary to all expectations. How indifferent they are in
preparing themselves for these unheard of events, through
which they will have to pass so shortly! The weight of divine
balance has reached the earth! The wrath of My Father shall be
poured out over the entire world! I am again warning the world
through your instrumentality, as I have so often done
"This catastrophe shall come upon
the earth like a flash of lightning! At which moment the light
of the morning sun shall be replaced by black darkness! No one
shall leave the house or look out a window from that moment
on. I Myself shall come amidst thunder and lightning. The
wicked shall behold My Divine Heart. There shall be great
confusion because of this utter darkness in which the entire
earth shall be enveloped, and many, many shall die from fear
"On that day, as soon as complete
darkness has set in, no one shall leave the house or look from
out of the window. The darkness shall last a day and a night
followed by another day and night, and another day-but on the
night following, the stars will shine again, and on the next
morning the sun shall rise again, and it will be SPRINGTIME!!
In the days of darkness, My elect shall not sleep, as did the
disciples in the garden. They shall pray incessantly, and they
shall not be disappointed in Me. I shall gather My elect. Hell
will believe itself to be in possession of the entire earth,
but I shall reclaim it.
"Again and again I have warned
men, and often have I given them special opportunities to
return to the right path; but now, wickedness has reached its
climax, and the punishment can no longer be delayed. Tell all
that the time has come in which these things shall be
fulfilled." (Feb. 7, 1950)
8. Sister Agnes
Another Marian apparition that
has been approved by the Catholic Church occurred in 1969 in
Japan. An angelic being appeared to Sister Agnes Sasagawa, who
was a postulant in the Order of the handmaids of the
Eucharist. The angel gave her a prayer to add to her Rosary:
"O My Jesus, forgive us our sins;
save us from the fire of hell; lead all souls to heaven,
especially those most in need."
This prayer was one of those
given by the Blessed Virgin to the children at Fatima! On June
12, 1973, Sister Agnes, who was deaf, heard a voice urging her
to go pray in the chapel:
"Do not fear. Pray with fervor
not only because of your sins, but in reparation for those of
all men. The world today wounds the most Sacred Heart of Our
Lord by its ingratitudes and injuries. The wounds of Mary are
much deeper and more sorrowful than yours. Let us go pray
together in the chapel."
When she went there, she saw
brilliant beams of light emanating from the tabernacle. The
light appeared during the next two days. On June 28, stigmata
(the wounds of Christ) began to appear on her hands in the
form of a bleeding cross. On July 6, while praying in the
chapel, Sr. Agnes heard a the statue of the Virgin Mary speak
to her, and other sisters saw blood dripping from the statue’s
right hand later the same day. The phenomena repeated itself
four times, ending on September 29. On that day, sisters
witnessed "sweat" exuding from the statue’s forehead and neck.
Then the statue began to "weep", and continued to do so until
1982. A Japanese TV crew was able to film the weeping
Sister Agnes continued to receive
messages from the angel (speaking for Mary) for 9 more years.
The following prophecies are excerpted from the transmissions:
"If men do not repent and better
themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on
all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge,
such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from
the sky and wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as
well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The
survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy
"Is the infirmity of your ears
painful? Your deafness will be healed. Does the wound of your
hand cause you to suffer? Pray in reparation for the sins of
men. [The apparition gave the text of a prayer.] Pray very
much for the pope, bishops, and priests. Tell your superior
all that passed today..." (July 6, 1973)
"If you love the Lord, listen to
what I have to say to you. It is very important; you will
convey it to your superior. Many men in this world afflict the
Lord. I desire souls to console him to soften the anger of the
heavenly father. I wish, with my son, for souls who will
repair by their suffering and their poverty for the sinners
"In order that the world might
know his anger, the heavenly father is preparing to inflict a
great chastisement on all mankind. I have intervened so many
times to appease the wrath of the father. I have prevented the
coming of calamities by offering him the sufferings of the son
on the cross, his precious blood, and beloved souls who
console him forming a cohort of victim souls. Prayer, penance
and courageous sacrifices can soften the father's anger...
Even in a secular institute prayer is necessary. Already souls
who wish to pray are on the way to being gathered together.
Without attaching too much attention to the form, be faithful
and fervent in prayer to console the master." (August 3, 1973)
"My dear daughter, listen well to
what I have to say to you. You will inform your superior. As I
told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the
father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It
will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will
never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe
out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad,
sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find
themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead... The
work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such
a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops
against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned
and opposed by their confreres... churches and altars sacked;
the Church will be full of those who accept compromises, and
the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to
leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially
implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of
the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins
increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon
for them. Today is the last time that I will speak to you in
living voice. From now on you will obey the one sent to you
and your superior." (Oct. 13, 1973)
The Virgin Mary and Jesus
Christ appeared to Veronica Lueken over a period of 25 years
during her Rosary vigils in Flushing Meadows Park, NY.
The Blessed Virgin warned
that unless we return to traditional morals, World War
III and a great comet will kill billions of people "within
this century, if not sooner."
Since the event did not come
to pass in the 20th century, then perhaps we have
rehabilitated sufficiently for Divine purposes, and
catastrophe has been averted, but more likely it has merely
been postponed. Our Lady has been appointed by God to warn
humanity that there will be a cleansing by fire unless we
repent and correct our ways. The chastisement will be preceded
by a worldwide Warning, and that will be followed by a great
Miracle. If mankind still refuses to change, then God will
On April 21, 1973, Veronica
Leuken received a Warning while in she was 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. . . It 's like a huge
explosion. Now this voice -- the voice ...! And the voice, Our
Lady says, is a voice within you: "Your warning before the
Chastisement! Flash, fire, and the voice within you! The final
Warning before Chastisement.
"Man will feel that the very
powers of the elements have shaken the very foundations of his
being. So great will be the impact of this Warning from the
Father that none will doubt that it had come from the Father.
. .It will be a major awakening to 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. .
On June 12, 1976, the Blessed
Virgin Mary told Mrs. Lueken that the Warning was close at
"My child, you must pray more: do
much penance. For the Warning is coming upon mankind. There
will be a tremendous explosion and the sky shall roll back
like a scroll, this force shall go within the very core of the
human. He will understand his offenses to his God. However,
this Warning will be of short duration. and many shall
continue upon their road to perdition, so hard are the hearts
hardened now, My child."
"The Eternal Father will send a
Warning to mankind, a great Warning of such magnitude that
very few will doubt that it comes from the Eternal Father and
is not man-made." (July 25, 1978)
"There is to come upon you a
great Warning, of such magnitude that every man, woman and
child will feel the burning fires within." (September 28,
"All who remain in the light of
grace will have no fear. They will pass through this great
Warning without suffering." (April 5, 1975)
"As the day follows night, so
shall this Warning follow soon. Beware of the sunrise! Do not
look up to the sky, the flash!!! Beware of the sunrise! Do not
look up to the sky, the flash!!! Close your windows! Draw your
shades! Remain inside: do not venture outside your door, or
you will not return! Pray! Prostrate yourselves upon your
floor! Pray with arms outstretched and beg for mercy of your
God, the Father. Do not seek or receive your animals into your
homes, for the animals of those who have remained of well
spirit will be taken care of."
"O My children, how many will try
to go back and restore their homes when it is too late. Keep
blessed candles, water, blankets, food within your homes. The
candles of those who have remained in the state of grace shall
not be extinguished, but the candles in the homes of those who
have given themselves to Satan shall not burn! Amen. I say to
you, as night follows day a great darkness shall descend upon
"When the Warning is sent upon
man, there will be no doubt in the minds of man that it
descends from the heavens. However, those who have already
committed themselves to Satan will see and yet not believe."
(September 28, 1973)
"The Father chooses to send upon
you first a great manifestation, a Warning. And should you not
listen to the voice within you, He will have no recourse but
to go forth with the plan for full cleansing. My Son has given
you His words; you have received one of the final warning
given to man." (May 10, 1973)
On June 8, 1974, Jacinta also
channeled a message through Veronica:
"It is true that I gave a final
message [to Mother Godinho], but I, too, could not give the
date --- only to warn the world that a great Warning would
come to mankind. It would be a great cataclysm Warning, and
then there would be a great Miracle. And after that, if
nothing changes and man continues to offend the Father, He
would have to start this terrible, terrible trial. For there
will be a great War and there will be a great, terrible
Bishop John Mugavero of Brooklyn,
however, issued a "Declaration Concerning the Bayside
Movement" (November 4, 1986), in which he declared:
"No credibility can be given to
the so-called "apparitions" reported by Veronica Lueken and
"The "messages" and other related
propaganda contain statements which, among other things, are
contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church, undermine
the legitimate authority of bishops and councils and instill
doubts in the minds of the faithful, for example, by claiming
that, for years, an "imposter (sic) Pope" governed the
Catholic Church in place of Paul VI.
"Those who persistently maintain
that "no ecclesiastical permission is required for the
publication or dissemination" of information concerning
"revelations, visions or miracles," are erroneously
interpreting the directives of the Holy See when they attempt
to justify the publication of the propaganda literature on the
This warning was issued in 1988,
but since then it has become just another failed prophecy:
"I, as your Mother, I am terribly
depressed in knowing what is fast coming upon mankind. I see
beyond me a ball, a large ball. Were it placed next to the
sun, this ball would be like two suns in the sky. But it is a
ball of destruction, and I tell you, My children, We have been
attempting to hold this back with all manners of graces, and
fasting, and suffering. But the Eternal Father says, 'Look up,
My child'; He said to look far up into the sky. Your human
eyes cannot perceive yet what is up there, but there is a
ball, to mankind known as 'unknown origin.' But it is not
unknown: it is the Ball of Redemption.
"Do not be affrighted, My
child, you must see this, for it is important. Within this
century this Ball will be sent upon mankind.
"My child, I took you from your
bed of pain and illness to bring you here to tell the world to
prepare now. It is almost too late. We have asked also,
urgently, and have had great cooperation from the earth's
masses of people-- to Rome to tell them, Look up, and see what
lies beyond your windows: a Ball that is fast hurtling towards
earth! It will be here within this century, if not sooner. For
even the scientists have failed to recognize the speed of this

destroyed; for mankind has listened, but has not followed a

Veronica: "I see a large crowd of
people in Rome. No, it's not Rome, because I can't see the...I

the number five of communism that is planning to kill the

your Holy Father, the Pope. You must not lose him, for the one
who comes after him will destroy if he can--he will attempt to
destroy, I should say, My child and My children; he will
attempt to destroy Pope John Paul II.
"I know, My child, how this has
both affrightened you, and also made you feel weak from
terror. I did not want to bring you here at first, My child,
as I know how weak and ill you have become; but you see, you
must help Our children upon earth.
"Also, they are so lacking in
interest in many places. Children are disappearing by the
thousands, and where do they go? They go straight to the pits
of hell, as they become pawns in the hands of the satanists.

and My child, Veronica -- you must be very careful. I have
warned you not to go out alone, not even to your roadway; for
you heard the music, My child. They were gathered beneath your

from you at our last meeting, but it is urgent that you must
know this. They are also going to try to murder you on your
stoop. Do not be afraid, My child; your destiny is with Jesus
and the Father.
"Now, My child, I want you to
look up, and look far into the sky. What do you see?"
Veronica: "I see a group of
people, talking outside a building. The building looks like it
may be in Russia. That's the only place I saw spires like they
have there. Now coming out of this building are two
sinister-looking men. They're looking at shotguns. And they
're also whispering. I can't hear what they're saying, but
they are mentioning the Pope. They keep repeating, 'the Pope.'
Now both of them are laughing, like they have accomplished
something bad; but they are laughing because they are demons!"

demons, I also mentioned to you that you must be very careful
and warn all that Satan was trying, and accomplished his
mission, to go into the workrooms of the White Berets and the

A "Miraculous Photo"
from Flushing Meadows:
The Grim Reaper
The Venezuelan stigmatist Maria
Esperanza Bianchini, whose wounds appear on Good Friday, has
been the reciprient of many mystical experiences since 1976.
She has reported many conversations with the Virgin Mary, she
has levitated during Mass, and has been seen to bilocate
(appear in two places at once). She and several other persons
have witnessed apparitions of the Blessed Virgin in the
village of Cua in the Finca Betania region of Venezuela. In
1984, Mary explained the reason for her appearances:
"I come to reconcile them, to
seek them out, to give them faith, which has disappeared in
the noise and din of an atomic awakening which is at the point
of bursting out. My message is of faith, love and hope. More
than anything, it brings reconciliation between people and
nations. It is the only thing that can save this century from
war and eternal death...If a change does not come and a
conversion of life, one will perish under the fire, war and
"Forgive one another. Love one
another. Serve one another. Pray for the Church. Pray for
priests. Return to the Sacraments, dear little children.
Confess your sins while the sun shines. Sacrifice yourselves
for the conversion of sinners and for peace in the world. All
of you are children of God. All are loved."
Mary also told Maria that mankind
would be facing its hour of decision in the mid-1990's, when
there would be grave danger of war involving Asia and Russia.
Apparently humanity has passed that crisis for the time being.
Mary also gave this warning:
"There is coming the great moment
of a great day of light. The consciences of this beloved
people must be violently shaken so that they may 'put their
house in order' and offer to Jesus the just reparation for the
daily infidelities that are committed on the part of
The Grotto at Cua
Visitors to the grotto have
reported visions of the Blessed Virgin, falls of rose petals
out of the air, angelic choirs, and healings.
After more than 10 years of
investigation by the Church, Bishop Pio Bello Ricardo stated:
"After having studied repeatedly
the apparitions of the Most Holy Virgin in Betania, and having
begged the Lord earnestly for spiritual discernment, I declare
that in my judgement said apparitions are authentic and have a
supernatural character. I therefore approve, officially, that
the site where the apparitions have occurred be considered as
Soon afterwards, a Eucharistic
miracle occurred during the vigil of the Immaculate Conception
on December 8, 1991. Father Otty Ossa (Maria’s spiritual
advisor) was saying Mass when the Host began to bleed as he
held it. Father Ossa said:
"I broke the Host into four
parts. When I looked down at the plate I could not believe my
eyes. I saw a red stain forming on the Host and from it a red
substance was beginning to emanate similar to the way blood
spurts out in a puncture. After the Mass, I took the Host and
protected it in the Sanctuary. The next day at six in the
morning, I observed the Host and I found that the Blood was
fluid and then began to dry, however to this day it still
looks fresh. Amazingly, the Blood is only on one side, not
bleeding through the exceedingly thin Host."
The phenomenon was videotaped,
and analysis of a sample of the blood showed it to be human.
of Medjugorje ~
In June, 1981, six youths from
the village of Medjugorje in central Yugoslavia met Mother
Mary on Mount Podbrdo. The apparitions have continued since
then, albeit with decreasing frequency. Mary sends a message
of faith, conversions, and fasting to brig peace to Earth. She
has come to bring humanity back to her son Jesus Christ, and
she warns that Satan is extremely active now; it is necessary
to pray often and fervently to defend against his assaults.
Medjugorje has subsequently become a major pilgrimage site for
more than 10 million devout Christians. The Serbo-Croatian
conflict erupted on the 10th anniversary of the apparition.
Mary has entrusted each of the
six visionaries with ten secrets concerning the fateful events
that will occur if humanity fails to rehabilitate itself in
due time. When the apparitions end at Medjugorje, all other
Marian apparitions will stop. Then the secret prophetic events
will transpire, and many humans will expire.
A report sent from the Bishop of
Mostar to the Pope stated:
"According to Mirjana, during the
apparition on December 25, 1982, the Madonna confided the
tenth and last secret to her, and she revealed the dates on
which the various secrets will come to pass. The Blessed
Virgin revealed many aspects of the future to Mirjana, many
more up to now than to the other seers. For that reason, I
relate now what Mirjana told me in a conversation on November
5, 1983 I shall summarize the essential things she said,
without any literal quotations. Before the visible sign is
given to humanity, there will be three warnings to the world.
The warnings will be warnings on the earth. Mirjana will
witness them. Three days before one of these warnings, she
will advise a priest of her choice. Mirjana's testimony will
be a confirmation of the apparitions and an incentive for the
conversion of the world. After these warnings, the visible
sign will be given for all humanity at the place of the
apparitions in Medjugorje. The sign will be given as the
testimony of the apparitions and a call back to faith...
"The ninth and tenth secrets are
grave matters. They are a chastisement for the sins of the
world. The punishment is inevitable because we cannot expect
the conversion of the entire world. The chastisement can be
mitigated by prayers and penance. It cannot be suppressed.
After the first warning, the others will follow within a
rather brief period of time. So it is that people will have
time for conversion. This time is a period of grace and
conversion. After the visible sign, those who are still alive
will have little time for conversion. For that reason, the
Blessed Virgin calls for urgent conversion and reconciliation.
The invitation to prayer and penance is destined to ward off
evil and war and above all to save souls. We are close to the
events predicted by the Blessed Virgin. Convert yourselves as
quickly as possible. Open your hearts to God. This is a
message to all mankind."
Father Tomislav has offered an
explanation of another prophecy made by the Virgin in 1983:
"They say that, with the
realization of the secrets entrusted to them by Our Lady, life
in the world will change. Afterwards, men will believe like in
ancient times. What will change and how it will change, we
don't know, given that the seers don't want to say anything
about the secrets."
In an interview conducted by
Janice Connell 1990, Marijana clarified some of the earlier
"The first two secrets will be
warnings to the world -- events that will occur before a
visible sign is given to humanity. These will happen in my
lifetime. Ten days before the first secret and the second
secret, I will notify Father Petar Ljubicic. He will pray and
fast for seven days, and then he will announce these to the
"This sign will be given for the
atheists. You faithful already have signs, and you have become
the sign for the atheists. You faithful must not wait for the
sign before you convert; convert soon. This time is a time of
grace for you. You can never thank God enough for His grace.
The time is for deepening your faith and for your conversion.
When the sign comes, it will be too late for many."
In a letter to Pope John Paul II
dated December 16, 1983, Father Tomisav Vlasic reported
concerning the revelations given by the Blessed Virgin to
"After the apparition of the
Blessed Virgin on November 30, 1983, Maria Pavlovic came to me
and said. ‘The Madonna says that the Supreme Pontiff and the
Bishop must be advised immediately of the urgency and great
importance of the message of Medjugorje.
"This letter seeks to fulfill
"Five young people (Vicka
Ivankovic, Maria Pavlovic, Ivanka Ivankovic, Ivan Dragicevic,
and Jakob Colo) see an apparition of the Blessed Virgin every
day. The experience in which they see her is a fact that can
be checked by direct observation. It has been filmed. During
the apparitions, the youngsters do not react to light, they do
not hear sounds, they do not react if someone touches them,
they feel that they are beyond time and space.
"All of the youngsters basically
"We see the Blessed Virgin just
as we see anyone else. We pray with her, we speak to her, and
we can touch her... The Blessed Virgin says that world peace
is at a critical stage. She repeatedly calls for
reconciliation and conversion... She has promised to leave a
visible sign for all humanity at the site of the apparitions
of Medjugorje... The period preceding this visible sign is a
time of grace for conversion and deepening the faith... the
Blessed Virgin ha promised to disclose ten secrets to us. So
far, Vicka Ivankovic has received eight. Marija Pavlovic
received the ninth one on December 8, 1983. Jakov Colo, Ivan
Dragicevic and Ivanka Ivankovic have each received nine. Only
Maria Dragicevic has received all ten... These apparitions are
the last apparitions of the Blessed Virgin on earth. That is
why they are lasting so long and occurring so frequently.
"The Blessed Virgin no longer
appears to Mirjana Dragicevic. The last time she saw one of
the daily apparitions was Christmas 1982. Since then the
apparitions have ceased for her, except on her birthday (March
18, 1983). Mirjana knew that this would occur.
"According to Mirjana, the
Madonna confided the tenth and last secret to her during the
apparition on December 25, 1982. She also disclosed the dates
on which the different secrets will come to pass. The Blessed
Virgin has revealed to Mirjana many things about the future,
more than to any of the other youngsters so far. For that
reason I am reporting below what Mirjana told me during our
conversation on November 5, 1983. I am summarizing the
substance of her account, without word-for-word quotations:
Mirjana said that before the
visible sign is given to humanity, there will be three
warnings to the world. The warnings will be in the form of
events on earth. Mirjana will be a witness to them. Three days
before one of the admonitions, Mirjana will notify a priest of
her choice. The witness of Mirjana will be a confirmation of
the apparitions and a stimulus for the conversion of the
"After the admonitions, the
visible sign will appear on the site of the apparitions in
Medjugorje for all the world to see. The sign will be given as
a testimony to the apparitions and in order to call the people
back to the faith.
"The ninth and tenth secrets are
serious. They concern chastisement for the sins of the
world. Punishment is inevitable, for we cannot expect the
whole world to be converted. The punishment can be diminished
by prayer and penance, but it cannot be eliminated.
"Mirjana says that one of the
evils that threatened the world, the one contained in the
seventh secret, has been averted, thanks to prayer and
fasting. That is why the Blessed Virgin continues to encourage
prayer and fasting:
"You have forgotten that
through prayer and fasting you can avert war and suspend the
laws of nature."
"After the first admonition, the
others will follow in a rather short time. Thus, people will
have some time for conversion.
"That interval will be a period
of grace and conversion. After the visible sign appears, those
who are still alive will have little time for conversion. For
that reason, the Blessed Virgin invites us to urgent
conversion and reconciliation.
"The invitation to prayer and
penance is meant to avert evil and war, but most of all to
"According to Mirjana, the events
predicted by the Blessed Virgin are near. By virtue of this
experience, Mirjana proclaims to the world: "Hurry, be
converted; open your hearts to God."
"In addition to this basic
message, Mirjana related an apparition she had in 1982, which
we believe sheds some light on some aspects of Church history.
She spoke of an apparition in which Satan appeared to her
disguised as the Blessed Virgin. Satan asked Mirjana to
renounce the Madonna and follow him. That way she could be
happy in love and in life. He said that following the Virgin,
on the contrary, would only lead to suffering. Mirjana
rejected him, and immediately the Virgin arrived and Satan
disappeared. Then the Blessed Virgin gave her the following
message in substance:
"Excuse me for this, but you must
realize that Satan exists. One day he appeared before the
throne of God and asked permission to submit the Church to a
period of trial. God gave him permission to try the Church for
one century. This century is under the power of the devil; but
when the secrets confided to you come to pass, his power will
be destroyed. Even now he is beginning to lose his power and
has become aggressive. He is destroying marriages, creating
divisions among priests and is responsible for obsessions and
murder. You must protect yourselves against these things
through fasting and prayer, especially community prayer. Carry
blessed objects with you. Put them in your house, and restore
the use of holy water...
"Holy Father, I do not want to be
responsible for the ruin of anyone. I am doing my best. The
world is being called to conversion and reconciliation. In
writing to you, Holy Father, I am doing only doing my duty.
After drafting this letter, I gave it to the youngsters so
that they might ask the Blessed Virgin whether its contents
are accurate. Ivan Dragicevic relayed the following answer:
"Yes, the contents of the letter are the truth. You must
notify first the Supreme Pontiff and then the Bishop."
The Blessed Virgin at Medjugorje
has said this concerning prophecy:
"Do not think about wars,
punishments, evil, because if you do you are on the road
toward them. Your task is to accept divine peace, to live it,
and to spread it."
The primary message of the
Blessed Virgin always has been one of Peace, Prayer, and
Mercy, rather than of her prophecies, which are contingent
upon the power of Prayer. According to Mary, the wrath of God
and Jesus can be averted (or at least delayed) by repentance
and the Rosary. This approach to world peace actually seems to
have worked in the case of the fall of the USSR, which also
prevented (or long delayed) the invasion of Europe by Soviet
