INTRODUCTION

:
THE FALSE POPE, THE FALSE PROPHET, THE SECOND BEAST OF THE APOCALYPSE!
With the resignation of Pope Benedict, some say, and rightly so, to not exaggerate, or imagine or
fabricate many things letting the mind run away. They say that God will not abandon us and that He
will provide, which is true. But many times there is an underlying attitude of this flowery hope that
the providence of God means the exclusion of great suffering and even great disasters. It is true that,
as Christians, we must always have hope. But many confuse divine hope with human hope in which
we do not have to go through Calvary with our Head, Jesus! There is Christian Hope after the
crucifixion!
Pope John Paul II warns us: “We are standing before today the greatest fight that humanity has ever
seen. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY HAS TOTALLY
UNDERSTOOD THIS. We are TODAY before the FINAL CONFRONTATION between the
Church and the anti-Church, between the Gospel and the anti-Gospel”.
POPE JOHN PAUL II SAID TO A GROUP OF PILGRIMS IN FULDA, WEST GERMANY, in
November 1980, speaking about the secrets of Fatima, that: “We have to be prepared to suffer,
before long, great trials which will require of us the disposition to sacrifice even our life for Christ.
Through your prayers and mine, it is still possible to diminish this trial (predicted at Fatima), but it
is no longer possible to avert it, because only in this manner can the Church be effectively renewed.
How many times has the renewal of the Church been brought about in blood! It will not be
different this time.”
PRECISELY BECAUSE SO FEW PEOPLE ARE PRAYING, THE REALITY TODAY IS NOT
TOO NICE. Some want to accuse me of being a pessimist, but I believe that I am rather a realist. I
am not the type to look at today’s reality with rose-colored glasses. Some of my friends have put me
in the category of half crazy, with the apocalyptic mentality, but they put up with me because there
is a scarcity of priests today.
Jesus said: "This generation will not pass away till all these things take place” (Mt 24:34; Mk 13:30;
Lk 21:32). There are a great number of indications and signs from the saints, the popes and from
the messages of Our Lady that we are “this generation” which Christ referred to in Matthew 24. I
believe that our “generation” will witness the most underhanded, sly and devastating deception of
Satan in the history of the world and of the Church. The true Christians, who will be ever more in
the minority and further away from the prevailing relativistic and secularistic mentality, in this
situation in which the False Pope offers “a religion without a cross”, will be more and more
persecuted by those who embrace this false and comfortable Christianity, and these apostates will
end up killing as many true Christians as possible to soothe or rather vindicate their dead
consciences given over to the “father of lies”. (Jn 8:44).
(“Catholic Prophecy Today”; http://markbeast.blogspot.com).
I think also that THIS FRAUD WILL BE DONE AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE, as hidden as
possible, so as to fool as many people as possible. As Saint Hildegard wrote (who was made a
doctor of the Church only a few months ago!!! (October 7, 2012..)): “two-thirds of the Christians
-1-

will go with him” (the false Pope, the false prophet, the second beast of the Apocalypse)! I do not
believe that it is by chance that Hildegard was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in this very
particular period of the history of the Church! Forewarned is forearmed!
This attitude to label me, as well as listening to the reaction of the priests about the resignation of
the Pope here in Italy, makes me realize more and more that many priests consider themselves as an
equal with the Vicar of Christ; many priests do not have the eyes of faith to believe that God has
given the Pope a very special charism for the Church, a true gift! It is like the Pope has his opinion
and I have mine, enough said. So many priests have the attitude of putting up with Pope Benedict
hoping that the next Pope will think as they do! They just might get their wish very soon in a way
that they never imagined, in their “wisdom and intelligence” (Mt 11:25; Lk 10:21), in a deception
better masked and disguised than ever before!
“The Pope, has been so ignored, disobeyed and despised in the last 50 years not only by the left side
of the spectrum (ignore or disobey) but also by the right side of the spectrum (prideful rebellion). I
think that this vacancy (while a “Judas Iscariot” will be in control of the Vatican) will be a great just
punishment not only for the whole Church but for the whole world. The world which is intrinsically
connected with all of creation, goes forward or backward depending on the behavior and choices of
those who have received much more responsibility from God in this “cosmic battle” (as Pope John
Paul II put it), the lay Catholics, the priests and the bishops of the One True Church, the Catholic
Church! Pope Paul VI was so devastated by the reaction to Humanae Vitae that he said, referring to
the situation in the Church, “FROM SOME CREVICE, THE SMOKE OF SATAN HAS ENTERED
THE TEMPLE OF GOD” (June 29, 1972). Pope Paul VI did not write another encyclical after
Humanae Vitae (1968)!
Is it not in our egotistical times, in the “culture of death” (Evangelium Vitae), that we hear shouted
and promoted in the mass media the prophecy of Jesus (the eighth “Station of the Cross”): “For
behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never
bore, and the breast that never gave suck!’ Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on
us’; and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ (“The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy
the dead.” - Akita). For if they do this when the wood is green (when all is easy in wellbeing and
richness; no sacrifice in giving life, procreation (Gen 1:28), as God did in creating us!), what will
happen when it is dry?” (Lk 23:29-31). In the past this prophecy was often applied to the women of
Jerusalem and those like them, those who had compassion for Jesus in His great sufferings for us;
sometimes this led people to think that I hope I am not pregnant of nursing a baby in the period of
time! The truthful economists, who do not promote the culture of death, tell us that one of the most
fundamental factors causing the current economic crisis is that for the first time in the history of the
world and of the Church in the richer countries there are more grandparents than children who must
sustain the pensions of those in retirement.
It is rather interesting that these priests and others who easily label me into a certain category are
not interested in having a dialogue with me so as to seek the truth together, each one offering the
information and insights that he has discovered and received. Pope John Paul II very often repeated
the importance of dialogue, dialogue, dialogue! But when one is open to dialogue there is the risk of
discovering something outside of our own heads (humility!) challenging us to change our idea or
even our life and then suffer the consequences.
Recently (after the announcement of the Pope’s resignation) a woman expressed her indignation
about a recent nomination for an important position in the Vatican. SHE WANTED TO PUT ALL
-2-

THE BLAME ON POPE BENEDICT. I said to her that I am not up to date on all of these things but
that there are more than one out of twelve “Judas Iscariots” in the Vatican and in the Church today.
What can the Pope do when so few recognize his important office and vocation given to him by
God and thus do not pay attention to what he says or disobey him outright? Do we obey the Church
and the Pope that Christ left us as a gift so as to be a part of the solution or do we only criticize the
Church and the Pope so as to contribute to the problem? It usually feels good inside to criticize
others in a non constructive way; sin is attractive and the easier way! It takes only a few to destroy,
but many to build. It took many people and many years to build the Twin Towers but only a few
minutes to bring down the Twin Towers! Many people today are fond of criticizing but how many
are willing to pray and offer themselves in persevering sacrificial love, courageously but with true
humility, to defend, protect and build up the Spouse of Christ, the Church?
(“Constructive Or Destructive Criticism”; http://god-politics.blogspot.it/2012/09/constructive-ordestructive-criticism.html).
I am not surprised by this attitude after having read: “A Manuscript On Purgatory.” In this booklet
Sister Gabriel in purgatory said to Sister Mary of the Cross: “If only it were given you to understand
with what scorn and indifference Jesus is treated on earth, not only by the world in general, but how
He is insulted, mocked and held in derision even by those who ought to love Him. Such
indifference is found even in religious communities of men and women, His chosen people, where
He ought to be treated as a Friend, a Father, a spouse. Often He does not even receive the
consideration shown to a stranger. This indifference is found also among the clergy, at present more
than at any other time. HE IS TREATED AS AN EQUAL BY THOSE WHO SHOULD TREMBLE
at the thought of the awful and august mission with which they have been entrusted. The most
sacred reality is often treated with coldness and boredom. How many are there who have the
interior spirit? I can assure you that there are but a few. Here in Purgatory the priests who are
expiating their indifference and their want of love are numerous. Their culpable negligence must be
atoned for in the midst of fire and torture of all kinds. You can judge from this that God who is so
good and loving to all His creatures finds few who love and console Him. Alas, there are few. That
is the sorrow of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the ingratitude of His own. Yet His Sacred Heart is full of
overflowing love and seeks only to share it. He wants to find some souls bereft of self so as to
overpower them with His love, more than He has as yet done for anyone. Oh, how little Jesus is
understood on earth, and how little are His mercy and His love understood! People try to seek
everything except that which gives real happiness. How pitiable!”
(“A Manuscript On Purgatory”; http://purgatory-manu.blogspot.com).
“Oh, what pain it causes my heart when I see a nun who has not the religious spirit! How can one be
pleasing to God when one is INFLATED WITH PRIDE AND SELF-LOVE UNDER THE
PRETENSE OF STRIVING FOR GOD’S GLORY, while in fact one is seeking one’s own glory?
When I see such a thing, it gives me very great pain. How can such a soul be united closely with
God? Union with the Lord is out of the question here” (Diary, 1139).
“On several occasions, I have learned how some religious defend their own glory under the pretext
of being concerned for the glory of God, whereas it is NOT A QUESTION OF THE GLORY OF
GOD, BUT OF GLORY OF SELF. O Jesus, how painful this has been for me! What secrets the day
of Your judgment will bring to light! How can one steal God’s gifts?” (Diary, 1149).
The Lord said to Saint Faustina: “I have wanted to exalt this Congregation many times, but I am
unable to do so because of its pride. Know, My daughter, that I do not grant My graces to proud
souls, and I even take away from them the graces I have granted” (Diary, 1170).

Prophetic private revelations are so important that Satan seeks in every way to diminish their
divulgation, influence and effect. In 1882, Christ revealed to the stigmatist, Marie Julie Jahenny of
La Fraudais, France that: "In the last days, a seemingly unlimited amount of FALSE
REVELATIONS will arise from hell like a swarm of flies; a last attempt of Satan to choke and to
destroy the efficacy of the TRUE REVELATIONS by false ones."
This revelation of Jesus to Marie Julie indicates that these revelations are important enough for
Satan to try to diminish their effectiveness in helping to convert souls. But this also indicates that
there are many false revelations and thus one must be wise and prudent especially in regards to
recent revelations in which the proper Church authorities have not made any pronouncement yet.
There are some who have the tendency to believe in every private revelation, and then there are
others who want to condemn every private revelation a priori. One must struggle each day to
discern and to discover the truth. Virtue lies between the two extremes as Saint Thomas tells us.
Usually it is easier to go toward one extreme or the other.
St. John also tells us: “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they
are of God: for many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1Jn 4:1).
THERE ARE SOME CATHOLICS AND CATHOLIC GROUPS WHO PUT THEMSELVES IN
THE PLACE OF JUDGING and interpreting the licitness of reading, promoting or going to
apparitions sites not yet approved. They put themselves in the place of the local ordinary or of the
Pope himself; many like to pontificate! They often interpret in their own rigorous way the decree of
the “Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine and the Faith”, published in the "Official Acts of the
Holy See" (A.A.S.) 58/16, dated December 29, 1966. Other critical Catholics want to accuse those
who read and promote these messages from these apparitions of Our Lady (or also, for example the
testimony of Gloria Polo) as being motivated only by curiosity and pride (who is really prideful
here?) in seeking to know that which is not for us to know. But if one goes even to this one-sided
interpretation and judgment, then why are the number of apparitions of Our Lady increasing in our
day as Cardinal Ratzinger pointed out ("The Ratzinger Report"; 1985)? Do these supposed wise
ones know more about what is needed today than the Mother of God? According to these
intelligent people, can there not also be another possible motive for reading and promoting the
messages of Our Lady in these our times which are so particular and in need of extra heavenly help
and guidance just as God gave extra heavenly help and guidance through the prophets and
patriarchs of the Old Testament? Does not the Church encourage us to read the whole Bible,
including the Book of Revelation, Daniel, Ezekiel, Matthew 24, Luke 21, Mark 13, etc.? In these
times of great trail and great deception God has sent the greatest human prophet, His Mother,
beginning in 1830 at Rue du Bac in Paris (1830), where St. Catherine Laboure beheld apparitions of
Mary who asked for the Miraculous Medal to be struck and devotion promulgated. It is amazing
how many people choose to close their eyes and ears to the signs of our times! Jesus called these
people “HYPOCRITES”! (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3).
Jesus to Saint Faustina: “Woe to them if they do not recognize this time of My visitation”! (Diary,
1160).
(“Revelations to Margaret of Jesus”; http://markbeast.blogspot.com/2009/04/margaret-ofjesus.html).
GOD OR HIS MOTHER DO NOT NEED PERMISSION from a bishop or a priest or a Catholic
group or a moderator of a Catholic Blog on the Web in order to appear or to give private
revelations. I think that very few of the seventy thousand people who went to Fatima on October
13, 1917 asked permission from their respective bishops or priests or from people who believe they
are wise and intelligent, and want to pontificate, before going to Fatima that day. And not
withstanding this lack of permission, they were rewarded with the great miracle of the sun. Did
-4-

God make a mistake according to these wise people? I also believe that as we approach this period
of “great tribulation” (Mt 24), God in His love for us, like a loving mother, will give even more
help, encouragement and words to the “little ones”, willing to listen, to help all those of good will to
prepare so as to take advantage of this period of great trial and suffering. In this way God will offer
one last help to those who might be willing to convert and put God in the first place and priority in
their lives rather than themselves or so many other things or persons.

The FALSE POPE – Saint Hildegard
Forewarned is forearmed!
Saint HILDEGARD of BINGEN (d. 1179), the newest Doctor of the Church, wrote that when the
new Pope is elected immediately before the Antichrist, a cardinal will kill the elected pope before
he is crowned through jealousy, he wishing to be Pope himself. Then when the other cardinals elect
the next Pope this cardinal will proclaim himself (anti) Pope, and two-thirds of the Christians will
go with him. She notes that this Antipope as well as the Antichrist are descendents from the tribe of
Dan. If this private revelation of St. Hildegard turns out to be true, is it possible that this Antipope,
who will appear “IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THE ANTICHRIST”, might be the FALSE
PROPHET predicted in the book of Revelation (Rev 16:13; 20:10; chap. 13 etc.) who will work
hand in hand with the first "beast", the Antichrist, to subdue and lead the world to the Antichrist?
“SATAN DISGUISES HIMSELF AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT” (2Cor 11:14).
The Beast will be able to perform “great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even
the elect” (Mt 24:24; Mk 13,22; Rev 13:8; 19:20)!
Before the second coming of Jesus Christ “that day will not come, unless THE REBELLION
(APOSTASY) COMES FIRST, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who
opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat
in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God” (2Thess 2:3-4).
The second beast (the false prophet) “exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and
makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. It
-5-

works great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men… and to
cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. Also it causes all, both small
and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead
(THE MICROCHIP), so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the MARK” (OF THE BEAST!)
(Rev 13).
(“Catholic Prophecy Today”; http://markbeast.blogspot.com).
(“The “Sign” of the Beast of the Book of Revelation”;
http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/microchipeng.html).
Those who have let themselves slowly slide into the comfort of subjectivism and relativism, which
totally surrounds us today like the air we breath, inventing the easy truth (small “v”) according to
their heads, will be very happy with this new “Judas Iscariot”, who will take control of the Vatican,
and who will approve their masked egoism in the name of religion. Behold “THE REBELLION
(APOSTASY)” which we see in the last 50 years! Each person is god (Gen 3:4-5)! They will say:
“Oh, finally we have a modern pope, with the times, who thinks like us!” One no longer asks the
question what does Jesus want, one does not confront his life with the Catechism of the Catholic
Church, one does not ask himself what are the effects on others caused by his actions, such as
selling pornography for a few coins (CCC 2354), abortion…; one just does not care, despite the fact
that God has given us everything we have, Who even sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for
each of us on the cross! “Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe
what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in
unrighteousness” (2Thess 2:11-12).
THE PRIESTS (CAPTAINS) AND THE BISHOPS (GENERALS) WHO HAVE SECONDED
THIS SLIDE INTO RELATIVISM and the slackening with their culpable silence and their
disobedience to the Vicar of Christ, the Pope, such as “Humanae Vitae” (1968), or the great
obligation to maintain a great reverence before the infinite God in the Eucharist (Memoriale
Domini, 1969), in this “dour combat” (CCC 409), have a much greater culpability having received a
great vocation and responsibility with the corresponding graces. LET US PRAY FOR OUR
PASTORS! One must struggle everyday with great effort to discover the Truth (big “V”), in order to
live the Truth with the help of God, to be able to lead oneself and others to the Truth not only in this
short life but for all eternity. God, Who is love, and thus respectful of our free will, does not coerce
anyone to be with the Truth Who is God! “The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from
God” (CCC 1035). God, Who is love, respects our great dignity at the level of the angels, created in
His image (Gen 1:26-27), and thus even if we live as animals without responsibility, we will be
judged as human beings at the end of our life. If more people would have prayed 100 years ago,
Hitler would not have been able to do what he did. Today there are much fewer people who pray
with the intention of discovering and doing the will of God! We deserve what is happening and
what is coming with the “NEW WORLD ORDER”, now rather hidden, but soon, totally in the
open!
(“Pope Paul VI As Prophet: Have Humanae Vitae's Bold Predictions Come True?” by Janet Smith;
http://www3.nd.edu/~afreddos/courses/264/popepaul.htm).
(“Prophecies of Humanae Vitae”; http://www.pop.org/content/prophecies-humanae-vitae).
(Memoriale Domini; http://www.ewtn.com/library/curia/cdwmemor.htm).
The first question that we learned in the catechism as children was: “Why did God create you? And
we answered: To know, love and serve God. TODAY THIS IS TOTALLY UPSIDE DOWN:
religion exists for a great number of people to serve me, not to help me to serve God, not to help me
-6-

to discover the will of God from the teachings of the Church guided by the Pope (Mt 16:18), not to
help me to do the will of God with the help of prayer and the Sacraments (as we say in the Our
Father: “THY (not mine!) will be done”!). The great majority of people today do not want to take
even the first step to discover what God wants. The philosophy of life is: “Ignorance is bliss”! Bliss
today, but tomorrow, and after death?!? The recent Popes tell us that the gravest sin today is that we
have lost the sense of sin. One trusts in himself and not in God-Love! “Jesus I trust in You!” (Saint
Faustina).
POPE JOHN PAUL II (AMONG MANY OTHER OCCASIONS) SPOKE FIRMLY TO THE US
BISHOPS AGAINST THIS "PICK AND CHOOSE SMORGASBORD TYPE CATHOLICISM" in
LA in his September 1987 visit: "It is sometimes reported that a large number of Catholics today do
not adhere to the teaching of the Church on a number of questions, notably sexual and conjugal
morality, divorce and remarriage. Some are reported as not accepting the Church's clear position on
abortion. It has also been noted that there is a tendency on the part of some Catholics to be
selective in their adherence to the Church's moral teachings. It is sometimes claimed that dissent
from the Magisterium is totally compatible with being a “good Catholic” and poses no obstacle to
the reception of the sacraments. This is a grave error that challenges the teaching office of the
bishops of the United States and elsewhere. I wish to encourage you in the love of Christ to address
this situation courageously in your pastoral ministry, relying on the power of God's truth to attract
assent and on the grace of the Holy Spirit which is given both to those who proclaim the message
and to those to whom it is addressed."
(http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/speeches/1987/september/documents/hf_jpii_spe_19870916_vescovi-stati-uniti_en.html).
The Servant of God, ARCHBISHOP FULTON SHEEN, said: “The False Prophet will have a
religion without a cross, a religion without a world to come, a religion to destroy religions. There
will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church will be one. And the False Prophet will create the
other. The false church will be worldly, ecumenical (false, not according to the teachings of the
Second Vatican Council), and global. It will be a loose federation of churches, religions forming
some type of global association, a world parliament of churches. It will be emptied of all divine
content and will be the mystical body of the antichrist. The Mystical Body of Christ on earth today
will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from among our
bishops.”
(“Everything is referred to the one who will “usurp” the Chair of Peter and will thus be a false Pope.
This time is near!...”; “Prophetic Warnings for the “Church” (Year 2005)”;
http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).
(“Remember this: when my son Peter will no longer be in power to guide the Church, then you will
be very attentive in doing what they will ask you. There will be needed much discernment and
letting oneself be interiorly guided and do not think too much about the ‘then’.” (January 24, 2002;
http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa9902eng.html).
The Catechism of the Catholic Church (as well as 1Jn 2:18) indicates that there will be ONE
ANTICHRIST IN PARTICULAR (CCC 675): “Before Christ's second coming the Church must
pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers (Cf. Lk 18:8; Mt 24:12).. The
persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth (Cf. Lk 21:12; Jn 15:19-20) will unveil the
“mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their
problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the

-7-

Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah
come in the flesh.” (Cf. 2Thess 2:4-12; 1Thess 5:2-3; 2Jn 7; 1Jn 2:18,22).
“CARDINAL IVAN DIAS AT LOURDES SAID: “What meaning could the message of Our Lady
of Lourdes have for us today? I love to situate these apparitions in the broader context of the
permanent and fierce combat between the forces of good and evil, which will continue till the end
of time”. Our Lady foresees “the rise of the Antichrist and his attempts to replace God in the life of
men; attempts that despite their striking successes, will be nevertheless destined to failure”. The
cardinal counsels to pray the Rosary, and to practice the conversion of heart, and to accept
sufferings for the salvation of the world. Especially now, he explains, because “The combat between
God and his enemy always blazes, even more today, because the world finds itself terribly
swallowed up in the swamp of a secularism that wants to create a world without God; of a
relativism that suffocates the permanent and immutable values of the Gospel; of a religious
indifference which remains imperturbable before the superior good of the things which regard God
and the Church”. And then he cites John Paul II: “WE ARE STANDING BEFORE TODAY THE
GREATEST FIGHT THAT HUMANITY HAS EVER SEEN. I do not believe that the Christian
community has totally understood this. We are today before the FINAL CONFRONTATION
between the Church and the anti-Church, between the Gospel and the anti-Gospel”. BUT IT IS THE
WOMAN “OF GENESIS AND OF THE APOCALYPSE”, CONCLUDES THE CARDINAL,
“THAT WILL COMBAT AT THE HEAD OF THE ARMY OF HER SONS AND DAUGHTERS
AGAINST THE ENEMY FORCES OF SATAN AND WILL CRUSH THE HEAD OF THE
SERPENT.” (Gen 3,15)” (December 13, 2007).

It was interesting that Pope Benedict XVI invited CARDINAL BIFFI TO OFFER THE ANNUAL
LENTEN RETREAT FOR THE POPE and the top members of the Vatican (Feb. 27, 2007). The
cardinal speaks often on the theme of the Antichrist. The Times of London reported in 2004 that the
Cardinal described the Antichrist as “walking among us”. “Days will come in Christianity in which
they will try to reduce the salvific event to a mere series of values.” It is a key passage in the last
work of Vladimir Soloviev, “Tale of the Antichrist”, at the center of Cardinal Giacomo Biffi’s
reflections. The Russian philosopher, who died in the year 1900 with great acumen, had prophesied
the tragedies of the 20th century. In the “Tale of the Antichrist”, recalled the cardinal, “THE
ANTICHRIST PRESENTS HIMSELF AS PACIFIST, ECOLOGIST AND ECUMENIST. He will
convoke an ecumenical council and will seek the consensus of all the Christian confessions,
granting something to each one. The masses will follow him, with the exception of small groups of
Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants who will resist and will say to the Antichrist: ‘You give us
everything, except what interests us, Jesus Christ’.” For Cardinal Biffi, this narrative is a warning:
“Today, in fact, we run the risk of having a Christianity which puts aside Jesus with his cross and
resurrection.”
(http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2007/mar/07030101.html).
RELATIVISM, according to Pope Benedict XVI, is "the most profound difficulty of our time."

(http://popebenedictxviblog.blogspot.it/2005_05_01_archive.html).
In his homily at the Mass preceding the conclave that quickly elected him Pope Benedict XVI, then
Cardinal Ratzinger said: “Today, having a clear faith based on the Creed of the Church is often
labeled as fundamentalism. Whereas relativism, that is, letting oneself be "tossed here and there,
carried about by every wind of doctrine", seems the only attitude that can cope with modern times.
WE ARE BUILDING A DICTATORSHIP OF RELATIVISM that does not recognize anything as
definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one's own ego and desires.”

“ONE DAY, I SAW TWO ROADS. One was broad, covered with sand and flowers, full of joy,
music and all sorts of pleasures. People walked along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They
reached the end without realizing it. And at the end of the road there was a horrible precipice; that
is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And their number was
so great that it was impossible to count them. And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it was
narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks; and the people who walked along it had tears in their
eyes, and all kinds of suffering befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up
immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts
of happiness, and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant they forgot all their
sufferings.” (Diary, 153)

“Today, I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell… But I noticed one thing: that most of THE
SOULS THERE ARE THOSE WHO DISBELIEVED THAT THERE IS A HELL” (Diary, 741). It
was recounted to Pope John Paul II that the Vatican's chief exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth,
“knows too many bishops who do not believe in the Devil”. The Pope replied bluntly: “ANYONE
WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE DEVIL DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL”. Amorth
said in an interview (2001): “We have entire Episcopates trying to counter exorcism. We have
countries completely devoid of exorcists, such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and
Portugal.” We poor buck privates are on the great spiritual field of battle and many of our generals
(bishops) and captains (priests) tell us that the enemy does not exist! We are in bad shape, to say the
least!

SISTER LUCY OF FATIMA said to Father Agostino Fuentes, the postulator of the cause of
beatification of Giacinta e Francesco (December 26, 1957): “Our Lady is very displeased because it
is not taken into account her message of 1917. Neither the good nor the bad have held them in
consideration. Believe me my Father, the Lord will punish the world very soon; the punishment is
immanent! Many nations will disappear from the face of the earth, many nations will be
annihilated. … The devil knows that the religious and the priests, not living up to their beautiful
vocation, drag many souls to hell. …The third time she said that, the other means exhausted and
despised by men, He will give with trembling the last anchor of salvation which is the Most Holy
Virgin in person, signs of tears, messages of seers spread in all the parts of the earth. Our Lady said
that if we do not listen and if we still offend we will not be pardoned. Father, it is urgent that we
realize this terrible reality. WE DO NOT WANT TO FILL THE SOULS WITH FEAR, BUT ONLY
-9-

IT IS URGENT A RECALL TO REALITY. From when the Holy Virgin gave such a great
efficaciousness to the Rosary, there does not exist any material, spiritual, national or international
problem that cannot be resolved with THE HOLY ROSARY AND WITH OUR SACRIFICES. To
recite it with devotion will be to consol Mary and to wipe away so many tears from her Immaculate
Heart. … Our Lady expressly said: “We are approaching the end times”.”
Cardinal Ratzinger said: “One of the signs of our times is that the announcements of 'MARIAN
APPARITIONS' ARE MULTIPLYING ALL OVER THE WORLD.” ("The Ratzinger Report";
1985).
OUR LADY AT AKITA, JAPAN said (October 13, 1973: the anniversary of the great miracle of the
sun on October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal; Also the same date (October 13 – 1884) of the
diabolical vision of Pope Leo XIII which motivated him to compose “The Prayer To Saint Michael
The Archangel” and to print it and send it to all the bishops of the world): “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 punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have 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
only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the
prayers of the Rosary. WITH THE ROSARY, PRAY FOR THE POPE, THE BISHOPS, AND THE
PRIESTS. The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see
cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be
scorned and opposed by their conferees… churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of
those who accept compromise …”

“THE DREAM OF ST. JOHN BOSCO” of the two pillars indicates to us the great importance of
staying very close to Jesus in the Eucharist (while it is still possible) with our Rosary in hand.

The last part of the homily of Pope Benedict XVI; Esplanade of the Shrine of Our Lady of Fátima;
before 500,000 people: 13 May 2010:
“WE WOULD BE MISTAKEN TO THINK THAT FATIMA’S PROPHETIC MISSION IS
COMPLETE. … At a time when the human family was ready to sacrifice all that was most sacred
on the altar of the petty and selfish interests of nations, races, ideologies, groups and individuals,
our Blessed Mother came from heaven, offering to implant in the hearts of all those who trust in her
the Love of God burning in her own heart. At that time it was only to three children, yet the
example of their lives spread and multiplied, especially as a result of the travels of the Pilgrim
Virgin, in countless groups throughout the world dedicated to the cause of fraternal solidarity. MAY
THE SEVEN YEARS WHICH SEPARATE US FROM THE CENTENARY OF THE
APPARITIONS HASTEN THE FULFILMENT OF THE PROPHECY OF THE TRIUMPH OF
THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, TO THE GLORY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY.”

The centenary of the anniversary of the great miracle of the sun, October 13, 1917 at Fatima,
Portugal, will be October 13, 2017! I believe that soon the Body of Christ, the Church, as a great
purification, will have to go through the stage of the crucifixion as her Head, Christ, three hours on
the cross, and even cry out with her Head: “My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me?” (Mt
27:46; Mc 15:34; Rev 13:7). This period will be the GREATEST TRIBULATION in the history of
the world and of the Church (Mt 24:21-22; Jer 30:7; Dan 12:1).
Let us make a good confession and changer our lives, with much prayer and sacrifices and good
will, while the door of Mercy is still open.
Jesus to Saint Faustina: “BEFORE I COME AS A JUST JUDGE, I first open wide the door of My
mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My
justice” (Diary, 1146).
Jesus said to Saint Faustina (of the Divine Mercy): “YOU WILL PREPARE THE WORLD FOR
MY FINAL COMING” (Diary of Saint Faustina, 429).
