Masonic Plan

The Masonic Plan For The Destruction Of The Catholic Church


A French priest who has renounced his membership of Freemasonry, announced this Masonic plan that he followed when he was part of the sect. As we have received this document so we publish it, asking our readers to offer on this point, a contribution of discernment and further documentation.

Directives of the Grand Master of the Masons to the Catholic Bishops, effective since 1962. (Updating of Vatican II). All mason brethren will have to report on the progress of these crucial provisions. Revised in October 1993 as a progressive plan for the final stage. All Masons employed in the Church must welcome them and carry them out.


1. Remove once and for all St. Michael, the protector of the Catholic Church, from all the prayers within the Mass and outside of the Mass. Remove the statues, saying that they distract from the Adoration of Christ.

2. Remove the Penitential Exercises of Lent such as abstinence from meat on Fridays or even fasting; impede every act of self-sacrifice. In their place should be favored acts of joy, happiness and love of neighbor. You say, "Christ has already won for us Paradise" and "every human effort is useless." Tell everyone that they must be seriously concerned about their health. Encourage the consumption of meat, especially pork.

3. Assign the Protestant ministers to reconsider the Holy Mass and to desecrate it. Sown doubts about the Real Presence in the Eucharist and confirm that the Eucharist - with greater proximity to the Protestant faith - is only bread and wine and is intended as a pure symbol. Spread Protestants in seminaries and schools. Encourage ecumenism as the path towards unity. Accuse anyone who believes in the Real Presence as subversive and disobedient to the Church.

4. Prohibited the Latin liturgy of the Mass, adoration and songs, because they communicate a sense of mystery and deference. Present them as spells of soothsayers. People will stop considering the priests as men of superior intelligence, to be respected as bearers of the Divine Mysteries.

5. Encourage women not to cover their heads with a veil in church. The hair is sexy. Demand woman readers and women priests. Present the idea as democracy. Found a movement of women's liberation. Those who enter the church should dressed badly in order to feel at home. This will reduce the importance of the Mass.

6. Prevent the faithful from taking Holy Communion kneeling. Tell the nuns that they must dissuade the children from keeping their hands together before and after Communion. Tell them that God loves them as they are and that they should feel completely at ease. Eliminate in the church kneeling and any genuflection. Remove the pews. Tell people that during the Mass they must show their faith in an upright position.

7. Eliminate the sacred music of the organ. Introduce the guitar, jew's harps, drums, trampling and holy laughter in the churches. This distracts people from their personal prayer and conversations with Jesus. Do not give Jesus the time to call children to the religious life. Perform liturgical dances around the altar in exciting clothes, theaters and concerts.

8. Remove the sacred character from the songs to the Mother of God and of St. Joseph. Indicate their veneration as idolatry. Render ridiculous those who persist. Introduce Protestant songs. This will give the impression that the Catholic Church finally admits that Protestantism is the true religion, or at least that it is equal to the Catholic Church.

9 Eliminate all the hymns even those to Jesus because they make the people think of happiness and serenity that comes from the life of mortification and penance for God already from childhood. Introduce new songs only to convince people that the previous rites were somehow false. Make sure that in every Mass that there is at least one in which Jesus is not mentioned and instead speaks only of love for men. The youth will be thrilled to hear about the love of neighbor. Preach love, tolerance and unity. Do not mention Jesus, prohibit any announcements of the Eucharist.

10. Remove all the relics of saints and later also from the Altars themselves. Replace them with pagan tables not consecrated which can be used to offer human sacrifices during satanic masses. Eliminate the Ecclesiastical law which wants the celebration of the Holy Mass only on Altars containing relics.

11. Discontinue the practice of celebrating the Holy Mass in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament in the Tabernacle. Do not admit any Tabernacle on the Altars that are used for the celebration of the Holy Mass. The board should have the appearance of a kitchen table. It must be transportable to express that it is not at all sacred but must serve a dual purpose as, for example, a table for conferences or for play cards on it. Later place a chair at that table. The priest must take that position to indicate that after the Communion he rests as after a meal. The priest must never kneel during the Mass or do genuflections. At meals, in fact, no one ever kneels. The chair of the Priest must be placed in the place of the Tabernacle. Encourage the people to worship and also to adore the priest instead of the Eucharist, to obey him instead of the Eucharist. Tell the people that the priest is Christ, their leader. Place the Tabernacle in a separate room, out of sight.

12. Let the saints disappear from the Ecclesiastical calendar, leaving always some at fixed times. Prohibit the priests from preaching about the Saints, except for those that are mentioned in the Gospel. Tell the people that any Protestants, probably in the church, could be scandalized. Avoid anything that disturbs the Protestants.

13. In the Gospel reading omit the word "holy", for example, instead of "the Gospel according to St. John," simply say: "Gospel according to John." This will make the people think that they should not venerate the saints anymore. Continuously write new bibles so that they will identical to the Protestant ones. Omit the adjective "Holy" in the expression "Holy Spirit". This will pave the way. Emphasize the feminine nature of God as a mother full of tenderness. Eliminate the use of the term "Father."

14. Try to get all the personal books of piety to disappear and destroy them. As a consequence of this the Litanies of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, of the Mother of God, of St. Joseph will cease also as the preparation for Holy Communion. The thanksgiving after Communion will become superfluous as well.

15. Cause to disappear also all of the statues and images of the Angels. Why should the statues of our enemies get in the way? Define them as myths or good night stories. Do not let the talk on the Angels since this perturbs our Protestant friends.

16. Repeal minor exorcisms to expel demons: work on this, announcing that the devils do not exist. Explain that this is the method adopted in the Bible to describe evil and that without a wicked one there cannot exist interesting stories. As a result people will not believe in the existence of hell nor will they be afraid to ever fall into hell. Repeat that hell is nothing more than the distance from God and that there is nothing terrible in that if we are basically speaking about the same life as here on earth.

17. Teach that Jesus was only a man who had no brothers and sisters and who hated the holders of power. Explain that he loved the company of prostitutes, especially of Mary Magdalene, who did not know what to do with churches and synagogues. Tell them that he advised not to obey the leaders of the Clergy, explained that he was a great teacher but deviated from the correct path when he neglected to obey the leaders of the church. Discourage the discussion on the cross as a victory, on the contrary present it as a failure.

18. Remember that you can induce the sisters to the betrayal of their vocation if you will concentrate on their vanity, charm and beauty. Have them change their Ecclesiastical habit and that will naturally lead them throw away their rosaries in disapproval. This will dry up their vocations. Tell the nuns that they will not be accepted if they do not renounce their habit. Favor the discredit of the ecclesiastical habit also among the people.

19. Burn all catechisms. Tell the teachers of religion to teach to love God's creatures instead of God Himself. To love openly is a testimony of maturity. Let the term "sex" become a household word in your daily religion classes. Make sex a new religion. Introduce images of sex in religious lessons to teach children the reality. Make sure that the images are clear. Encourage schools to become progressive thinkers in the field of sex education. Introduce sex education through the Bishop's authority so parents will have nothing against it.

20. Suffocate the Catholic schools, preventing the vocations of the nuns. Reveal to the nuns that they are underpaid social workers and that the Church is about to eliminate them. Insist that the lay Catholic teacher receive the same wage as those of government schools. Use non catholic teachers. The Priests must receive the same salary as the corresponding secular employees. All priests must put away their Clerical Robe and their crosses so as to be accepted by everyone. Render ridiculous those who do not conform.

21. Annihilate the Pope, destroying his Universities. Detach the Universities from the Pope, saying that in this way the government might subsidize them. Replace the names of religious institutes with profane names, in order to favor of ecumenism. For example, instead of "School of the Immaculate Conception," you say, "New High School". Establish departments of ecumenism in all the dioceses and take that they be controlled by the protestant side. Prohibited prayers for the Pope and for Mary because they discourage ecumenism. Announced that the local bishops are the competent authorities. Uphold that the Pope is merely a figurehead. Explain to the people that the Papal Teaching is useful only for conversation but which is otherwise unimportant.

22. Fight Papal Authority, putting an age limit on his activity. Reduce the age limit gradually, explaining that you want to preserve him from excessive work.

23. Be bold. Weaken the Pope by introducing Episcopal synods. The Pope will then become only a figurehead as in England where the High chamber and the Low chamber reign and from them the queen receives orders. Then weaken the authority of the Bishop, giving rise to a concurrent institution at the level of the priests. Say that in this way the priests receive the attention they deserve. Finally weaken the authority of the priest with the formation of groups of lay people who dominate the Priests. In this way you will give rise to such a hatred that even Cardinals will abandon the Church and then the Church will be democratic ... the New Church ...

24. Reduce the vocations to the priesthood, making the laymen lose their awe of it. The public scandal of a Priest will destroy thousands of vocations. Praise priests who for the love of a woman abandoned everything, defining them as heroes. Honor Priests reduced to the lay state as true martyrs, the oppressed to the point of not being able to endure anymore. Also condemned as a scandal that our mason brethren in the priesthood must be made known and their names published. Be tolerant with homosexuality within the Clergy. Tell the people that priests suffer from loneliness.

25. Begin to close the churches due to the shortage of clergy. Defined as good and economical this practice. Explain that God hears prayers everywhere. In this manner the churches become an extravagant waste of money. Close above all the churches in which they practice traditional piety.

26. Use committees of lay people and priests weak in faith who might condemn and reprehend without difficulty every apparition of Mary and apparent miracle especially of the Archangel St. Michael. Make sure that nothing of this, in no measure, will receive approval according to Vatican II. Call it disobedience to authority if anyone obeys the Revelations or even if someone reflects on them. Indicate the Seers as disobedient against Ecclesiastical Authority. Bring down their good name in the mud, so that no one will hold in consideration their Message.

27. Elect an Antipope. Affirm that he will bring back the Protestants in the Church and perhaps even the Jews. An Antipope will be able to be elected if the Bishops might be given the right to vote. In this way many Antipopes will receive votes so that an Antipope will be installed in office as a compromise. Affirm that the true Pope is dead.

28. Remove Confession before Holy Communion for the students of the second and third grade so that they do not care anything about Confession when they will go to the fourth or fifth grades and then the upper classes. Confession then will disappear. Introduce (in silence) communal confession with absolution as a group. Explain to the people that this happens due to the shortage of clergy.

29. Have the distributing of Communion done by women and lay people. You say that this is the time of the laity. Begin with giving Communion in the hand, as do the Protestants, rather than on the tongue. Explain that Christ did it the same way. Collect some hosts for "black masses" in our temples. Afterwards distribute instead of the personal Communion a cup of unconsecrated hosts that one can bring home with them. Explain to them that in this way they one can take the divine gifts into everyday life. Place automatic dispensers of hosts for communions and name these Tabernacles. Tell them that they must be exchanged peace signs. Encourage people to move into the church to interrupt devotion and prayer. Do not make Signs of the Cross; in place of it instead a sign of peace. Explain that also Christ got up to greet the Disciples. Do not allow any concentration in such moments. The Priests must turn their back to the Eucharist and honor the people.

30. After the Antipope has been elected, dissolve the synod of bishops as well as the associations of priests and parish councils. Forbid all religious to question, without permission, these new provisions. Explain that God loves humility and hates those who aspire to glory. Accuse of disobedience against Ecclesiastical authority all those who raise questions. Discourage obedience to God. Tell the people that they must obey these higher ecclesiastics.

31. Give the Pope (= Antipope) the maximum power to choose their successors. Order under pain of excommunication all those who love God, to bear the mark of the beast. Do not call it though the "sign of the beast." The Sign of the Cross should not be done nor used on people or through them (you should not bless anymore). To make the Sign of the Cross will be designated as idolatry and disobedience.

32. Declare previous dogmas as false, except Papal Infallibility. Proclaim Jesus Christ as a failed revolutionary. Announce that the true Christ will soon come. Only the elected Antipope must be obeyed. Tell the people that they must bow when his name is uttered.

33. Order all the subjects of the Pope to fight in holy crusade to extend the one-world religion. Satan knows where one finds all the lost gold. Conquer the world without pity! All this will bring to humanity all that it has always craved: "the golden age of peace."

The sad thing is that except for a few point (such as the antipope and the negation of the divine nature of Christ) one can say that all of this has already happened… Many of their goals have been accomplished. Almost all of the points have been realized since the distribution of this directive, that is, of 1962. (http://amiamogesu.weebly.com/demonio-e-demoni.html)

I, Father Joseph Dwight, translated this document from an Italian translation in September 2013.

Before doing all the work to translate this document into English, I, searched the web and only found one article, a forum, which made reference to this article in English. At this web site, http://forums.catholic-convert.com/viewtopic.php?, which discusses the above article which I translated from the Italian, there was the web reference “Masonic Plan For The Destruction Of The Catholic Church”. When I clicked on this reference (http://www.profezie.info/UK/AD_Piano_Massonico_uk.htm), I received the following message from Google at this site: “The page cannot be found”.
English is much more wide spread in the world than Italian!


Having been away from the USA for more than 27 years, when I was not sure how to translate certain words or phrases in the more modern, typical American English, I tended toward the literal translation which sometimes might not come across well to the ears of an English speaking person as it might to an Italian speaking person.

MANY BELIEVE THE FREEMASONS ARE SIMPLY A CENTURIES OLD CHARITABLE FRATERNITY. However, the Catholic Church has consistently condemned Freemasonry more that any other error in its history because it promotes indifferentism, naturalism, communism, and other dangerous philosophies.

THOSE WHO HAVE SLID AWAY FROM TRUST IN THEIR CREATOR, and for Catholics trust in Holy Mother Church, automatically fall prey to the nice sounding lies of Satan, the “father of lies” (Jn 8:44), who is doing all he can to lead us to his eternal dwelling.

We wish it to be your rule first of all to TEAR AWAY THE MASK FROM FREEMASONRY, and to let it be seen as it really is,” … “…let no man think that he may for any reason whatsoever join the Masonic sect, if he values his Catholic name and his eternal salvation” (Pope Leo XIII, Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884).

I believe this SECRET ATHEISTIC ORGANIZATION to be nothing less than the supreme conflict between the Church and Satan’s followers.” – Msgr. George F. Dillon, Grand Orient Freemasonry Unmasked, 1885.

MASONRY OUGHT FOREVER TO BE ABOLISHED. It is wrong – essentially wrong – a seed of evil, which can never produce any good! – President John Quincy Adams, Letters on the Masonic Institution, T.R. Maruin Press, Boston, 1847.

CONGREGATION FOR THE DOCTRINE OF THE FAITH; DECLARATION ON MASONIC ASSOCIATIONS:
“Therefore the Church’s negative judgment in regard to Masonic association remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion.” (November 26, 1983; http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19831126_declaration-masonic_en.html).

Freemasonry's Influence in Europe - Incompatible With Christian Religion, Says Historian” (Protestant historian C├ęsar Vidal; http://www.zenit.org/article-12115?l=english).

God created man in His image (Gen 1:26-27), and thus man is free to choose to serve God or to serve himself, the world or the devil, with the talents and gifts that God has given to each person. “The whole of man’s history has been the story of dour combat with the powers of evil” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 409)! Pope John Paul II said: “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” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/02/resignation-of-pope-benedict.html).
One of the most powerful and influential proponents of the “anti-Church” and the “anti-Gospel” is Freemasonry.

When this article was posted on a very large web site in the USA (Nov. 10, 2013), “Free Republic – The Premier Conservative Site on the Web”, which includes not only politics but also religion, in less than 12 hours the “RELIGION MODERATOR” wrote: “This article, “The Masonic Plan for the Destruction of the Catholic Church” will not be allowed on the Religion Forum because it MONGERS HATRED much like the false Jesuit Oath: http://www.ianpaisley.org/article.asp?ArtKey=jesuit .

THE CHURCH IS MADE UP OF SINNERS. There have always been those within the Church who do not follow the teachings of the Church. The Church helps us to maintain balance and equilibrium among the precious and powerful truths of our Catholic faith in order to not slide into great and devastating error to the right or to the left. So many priests and bishops today proclaim the part about “religious freedom, which men demand as necessary to fulfil their duty to worship God, has to do with immunity from coercion in civil society” (Dignitatis Humanae 1; CCC 160), but neglect to talk about “All men are bound to seek the truth, especially in what concerns God and His Church, and to embrace the truth they come to know, and to hold fast to it. This Vatican Council likewise professes its belief that it is upon the human conscience that these obligations fall and exert their binding force”; the Council “leaves untouched traditional Catholic doctrine on the moral duty of men and societies toward the true religion and toward the one Church of Christ” (DH 1). Here is where Satan plays his hidden cards which causes great damage to souls and to the whole Church disguised in the name of “love” and “mercy” and “ecumenism” and “the good of all” and “for the unification of all God’s children”! Where are the true pastors who are alert and studious in discerning and detecting the clever and subtle deceptions of the wolf, the pastors who know how to interpret the signs of the times so as not to be hypocrites (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3; 24:51), who are ready to lay down their lives in being ridiculed, mocked and persecuted in order to serve and save the sheep in revealing the destructive lies of the wolf, as Christ did for us?

As I wrote in the introduction to the article “The FALSE POPE - Saint Hildegard” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/02/resignation-of-pope-benedict.html), THERE ARE MANY WHO ARE FOND OF PONTIFICATING by being very critical from their own point of view without dialogue. It takes humility to remain open to new indications revealed to us, the divine revelation, to the teachings of the Church for Catholics, while not putting ourselves in the place of the Pope or of God.

In the world today, as well as in the Catholic Church, ONE FEELS VERY UNEASY TO CALL A SIN A SIN according to the Gospels in the public square; one feels great pressure to no longer recognize that we are in a “dour combat with the powers of evil” (CCC 409). History is rewritten and the truth is covered over so as to arrive more and more to what the prince of this world (Jn 12:31; 14:30; 16:11; 1Cor 2:6-8; Eph 2:2) would like us to believe and do: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Is 5:20)! Certainly the “powers of evil” want the children to habitually look at the faults of their parents, or at the faults of the priests in the parishes or at the faults of the bishops in the dioceses, putting in the headlines those priests who committed serious crimes. But it is interesting how they overlook that percentage wise there are far fewer priests who commit the crime of pedophilia than teachers and professors in the school system of New York! Are these secularists truly concerned about the good of the children and are they really seeking the truth and the real solution as they proclaim to be doing or is there a hidden agenda here?!?

As humans, we are not capable of understanding fully the essence of something immediately as angels do. Thus we tend to look in one or two directions in considering a situation or an argument. This is also why the puppets of “the powers of evil” have REWRITTEN MANY OF OUR TEXT BOOKS, INCLUDING HISTORY BOOKS, so as to lead us to look in the direction that they want us to, and not see things from a Christian prospective. Thomas F. Madden, a History Professor at Saint Louis University, has written about this “HISTORY DISTORTION”, in particular about the middle ages and about the Crusades.

To give some idea of how we can be subtly but powerfully manipulated psychologically into accepting false ecumenism and false mercy and false truth, read: “37. The Astounding Impact of the Ruthless Manipulation of Militant Gay Activists!” (http://markbeast.blogspot.com), which gives an idea of the highly advanced and developed techniques of selling a commercial product but instead are used to sell the “product” of homosexuality and the diabolical agenda of the culture of death to an unsuspecting public. SO MANY RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND BLOG MODERATORS HAVE SWALLOWED THIS SUBTLE AND ASTUTE DECEPTION IN ORDER TO BE “POLITICALLY CORRECT” and then end up, at least unconsciously working for the other side that they claim to condemn! “Free Republic” has many articles which expose the homosexual agenda but they protect perhaps the most powerful and hidden group of people who are promoting this very destructive agenda, the Freemasons!
Thus the “Religion Moderator” wrote about this article: “it mongers hatred much like the false Jesuit Oath”. Thus also Jesus according to this criteria, who condemned sin and proclaimed the truth and revealed the hidden hypocrisy, the hidden agenda of the Jewish elders, would be labeled today as “mongers hatred” by at least the “Free Republic – The Premier Conservative Site on the Web”! Would not the Pharisees and Scribes have said the same about Jesus 2000 years ago, but perhaps in a less sophisticated and disguised way?!?

Is such a “Religion Moderator” who decides that such an article “will not be allowed on the Religion Forum because it MONGERS HATRED much like the false Jesuit Oath” putting a priori a document, published in an Italian Magazine, into the category of “mongers hatred” of a “false Jesuit Oath” with no further investigation or openness to dialogue to seek the truth together with other bloggers?

IS THIS NOT INTERESTING HOW THIS MODERATOR TAKES AN ABERRATION, highlights small groups of imprudent and prideful sinners in the Church, AS AN EXCUSE, AS A LEVER, TO DISMISS A VERY SERIOUS AND DESTRUCTIVE AGENDA of the organization most condemned by the Catholic Church, as if the numerous popes who have warned us about the great hidden dangers of the agenda of Freemasonry are all stupid? This is a typical ploy to take our eyes off of the gravity of the diabolical and very destructive agenda, as well as to divert our attention from the most powerful groups destroying souls, families and the society, as they masquerade around or disguised themselves (2Cor 11:14) as a simply CENTURIES OLD CHARITABLE FRATERNITY. A person who is truly praying sincerely everyday and thus understands at least in part the real situation in the world and the Church today, as Pope John Paul II stated, “the Final Confrontation”, realizes the hidden genius of these 33 directives of the Grand Master of Freemasonry guided by Satan himself to destroy the main enemy of Satan, the Catholic Church, the Mystical Body of Christ!

When one has a little idea of what the Second Vatican Council tried to reiterate in even stronger words that the Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life” (VCII: LG 11; CCC 1324), one understands better the genius of many of these directives of how to lead people away or at least diminishes the graces received from our greatest gift on earth, the Most Holy Eucharist, by undermining humble reverence and conscience faith of the majesty of Who is in the Tabernacle. Then one can consider the many other incredible treasures in the Catholic Church and to examine how these 33 directives undermine these treasures in the most effective way possible. One could say that if a Catholic does exactly the opposite of what these 33 directives command the proud puppets of the Grand Master of the Masons, one would be going in the right direction toward God and eternal life!

Many Catholics want to put the blame on the lose of appreciation and devotion for these great treasures in the Church on the Second Vatican Council; this is exactly what the Grand Master of the Freemasons wants! POPE BENEDICT BEGAN THE REFORM OF THE REFORM OF THE SACRED LITURGY after many so called experts of the Liturgy immediately after the Second Vatican Council shrewdly shifted the focus of the Liturgy to man instead of God. The First Commandment of God is: “You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve” (CCC 2084; Ex 20:2-5; Deut 5:6-9). The Vatican's chief exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, in an interview of 2001, said: “The Second Vatican Council asked that some texts be revised. Disobeying this command, they set about re-writing them completely with no thought for the danger of making things worse instead of better. So many rites came off badly from this mania to throw out the old and start from scratch, as if the Church to date had always conned us and as if only now the time had at last come of the great geniuses, the super theologians, the super-biblists and the super-liturgists who know what the right thing is for the Church. This is a lie: the last Council simply asked that the texts be revised, not destroyed.” (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html).

BEVERLY EAKMAN, in her book “AGENDA GAMES: HOW TODAY’S HIGH-STAKE POLITICAL COMBAT WORKS” shows very clearly how nice words are being used to promote sex and homosexuality (www.beverlyeakman.com). She says that you have to know the tactics being used against you before you can fight them. Shame and sin are being banished from the public square. You do not say those words anymore without feeling politically incorrect. They have been turned into neurosis, medicalizing matters of conscience. We have to fight the medicalization of morals. Sin is now a neurosis and guilt is even more neurotic. This is one of the underlying and powerful strategies of the political combat of controlling our minds. But in the Church, this is done more subtly, but powerfully, by not talking about sin and its consequences (the devil and hell no longer exist!), but only talking about love. It is most interesting how often we find this false “love” used as a powerful strategy in the 33 directives of the Grand Master of the Masons to the Catholic Bishops to destroy the Catholic Church! The word “love” appears a whopping 11 times in these 33 directives! “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14)!

In the very secularize world pushing sin and healthy guilt into the category of neurosis, it does not take much to keep the ball rolling in the direction of eliminating the need of repentance within the Church. The recent popes of the past realized this and warned about this fundamental and very great danger as an anecdote to the very strong tide of pride in not acknowledging our sins before God and man. By acknowledging our sins and throwing ourselves into the merciful arms of our loving Savior Jesus Christ, we are relieved and free of the real psychological neurosis of suppressed guilt. As people go less and less to confession, it is very interesting how more and more people go to psychiatrists!

The secretary of the Congregation for Clergy, Archbishop Mauro Piacenza, has lamented that many faithful no longer confess their sins. Archbishop Piacenza told Vatican Radio the sacrament of penance has been experiencing a "deep crisis" for decades. Piacenza, an official for the Vatican office on clergy, says fewer people distinguish between good and evil, and as a result do not go to confession. The archbishop said in an interview that if faithful do not have a sense of sin, they might "CONFUSE" CONFESSION WITH "THE COUCH OF A PSYCHOLOGIST OR A PSYCHIATRIST." He says the Vatican plans to publish this year (2009) a “vademecum for confessors and spiritual directors”. (http://www.cathnews.com/article.aspx?aeid=14231).

It is astounding how things have been turned upside down when so many people have abandoned God and His life saving commandments and life giving sacraments! With humility, which is truth of who we are and Who God is, there is peace; with pride, which is the lie that we can determine the criteria of good and evil (Gen 3:4-5), there is no peace inside of us nor in society which is made up of people. The first step of conversion is allowing the Holy Spirit to convict us of our sins (Jn 16:8); without this conviction of our sins, we have no need of Christ Who came for sinners and not the just (Lk 5:32), and thus the redemption is rendered null and void! How shrewd and intelligent is Satan! But with persevering prayer, we win; if we do not persevere in prayer, Satan can very easily manipulate us in his direction even though we feel we are very intelligent and full of wisdom (Mt 11:25; Lc 10:21)!

I ONCE OFFERED A REFERENCE TO AN ARTICLE ON MOTHERHOOD IN WIKIPEDIA. The moderator accused me of spamming and threatened me to the point of not allowing me to enter Wikipedia as well as seeking to punishing me even outside of Wikipedia on the Internet. This is what happens if one contributes to Wikipedia with Christian values instead of the mindset of the homosexual agenda which is all part of the culture of death promoted today with great sums of money. The personal description of this moderator 5 years ago was a very proud and outspoken homosexual; when I looked at his personal description more recently, he toned down his very aggressive homosexual appearance!?!

To fight in a battle, is it not prudent and necessary to know not only your own weapons, tactics and strategy but also the weapons, tactics and strategy of the enemy? 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”. When asked “What do you see as SATAN’S GREATEST SUCCESS?”, Amorth replied: “The fact that he has managed to convince people that he does not exist. He has almost managed it, even within the Church. We have a clergy and an Episcopate who no longer believe in the Devil , in exorcism, in the exceptional evil the Devil can instill, or even in the power that Jesus bestowed to cast out demons. … And they no longer believe in the Devil. We have entire Episcopates trying to counter exorcism. We have countries completely devoid of exorcists, such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. This is a shameful shortfall.”; (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html).

It seems to me that “The Testimony of Gloria Polo” (http://testimony-polo.blogspot.com/) is a gift from God to help counter “SATAN’S GREATEST SUCCESS”! When my article about a priest, who did not want to offer this testimony in his parish, was posted at “Free Republic”, “An Open Letter To A Fellow Priest” (http://testimony-polo.blogspot.com/2009/11/open-letter-to-fellow-priest.html), again the religion moderator gave a rather strong admonition and warning, even to the priest who posted this article on his own web site! These moderators know more than any priest or bishop or the Pope what is best for the souls today in a world full of confusion and lies! The saints tell us that WITHOUT HUMILITY, THERE IS NO VIRTUE!

THE CONFESSIONS OF A HUMAN DEMON, a dammed priest, by way of an EXORCISM (April 5, 1978) on a Swiss woman, revealed this same fundamental and very powerful deception promoted by the FREEMASONRY in the name of “love” and “mercy” while allowing the most important commandment of love of God slide into the second priority or even less. These confessions REVEAL SATAN’S MOST POWERFUL BUT SUBTLE AND HIDDEN TRAPS which lead countless numbers of souls toward and into hell. We see this very destructive reversal of priorities all around us in the Church today. Visit: “A Damned Priest Warns About Hell” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/12/damned-priest.html).

THE HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVISTS DO NOT SEEK TO RESPECT THE CHOICE AND DESIRES OF THOSE WHO DISAGREE WITH THEM IN ANYWAY. In one way or the other we will be manipulated, coerced and forced to swallow and accept their poisonous agenda with or without the consent of the general public. It is amazing how so few recognize this total hypocrisy in demanding respect and recognition for the homosexual agenda while totally ignoring and ridiculing the majority of the people’s desire to respect and recognize what the people want: marriage between one man and one woman as God designed and intended. Those who pray recognize the difference between dressed up lies, that are hammered into us, and the truth. The fundamental “seed of truth” recognized by all the major religions is the golden rule: do onto others as you would have them do to you! The homosexual activists do not even have this most basic decency as they parade around shouting to be respected while accusing the others of bigotry!?! “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Is 5:20)!

OBAMA DID NOT OPENLY EXPRESS HIS VIEWS 6 OR 7 YEARS AGO ON PROMOTING HOMOSEXUALITY because he knew there was a great risk of loosing the election. Now after six years of shrewdly taking control of the US government - often in direct violation of the constitution approved by the American people, appointing dictatorial judges imbued in the destructive philosophies of positivism and relativism, and in particular of promoting his world view of the culture of death, not only in the USA but in the whole world using USA taxpayer money without taxpayer consent, with the promotion of pornography, birth control, abortion and euthanasia - the American people have been coerced and manipulated and brainwashed to the point of no longer having the spiritual strength to resist or even understand the poison they are being forced to swallow in being coerced to redefine marriage in a totally unnatural way contrary to the design of the Creator for men and women (Gen 1-3), the family and the society. THE GREAT MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE NOW STAGGERING IN THE DRUNKENNESS of sins of egoism and pride and lust and lack of any relationship with their life-giving Creator in daily prayer and self-sacrifice, and thus are not able to distinguish between nice lies requiring no sacrifice and the truth which requires commitment and sacrifice. Thus Obama can more and more openly express his very destructive agenda, and lead the American people where he decides, without loosing too much support as would have happened only a few years ago. We see over and over again the effective strategy of relentlessly taking three steps forward and two steps back, irregardless of what the general public is aware of or really desires! Very soon the New World Order leaders will no longer need to take 2 steps back! And all the while, in this “cosmic struggle”, in this “final confrontation” (as Pope John Paul II puts it) and in this “dour combat” (CCC 409), most of our generals (bishops) and colonels (priests) not only did not warn us about the subtle but powerful traps of the wolf but even helped to put to sleep spiritually the sheep in the rhetoric of false love and silence about sin (a fundamental Mason tactic) and its consequences, and even told us that the enemy does not exits (Fr. Gabriele Amorth; http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html).

TRUE CHRISTIANS ON THE OTHER HAND RESPECT THE FREE WILL OF OTHERS JUST AS GOD DOES Who does not force anyone to spend eternity with Him (Who is the Truth) in heaven, and thus God created hell, where the “father of lies” (Jn 8:44) dwells. But true freedom in a democracy is freedom to swing ones arms up to the point of hitting the nose of ones neighbor. This means that the homosexual activists can swing their arms of promoting their destructive agenda even in public (Dignitatis Humanae, 1) up to the point of hitting the nose of those who do not want the homosexual activists intoxicating their children in public schools as well as using taxpayer money to intoxicate and brainwash the unsuspecting general public using taxpayer funds in controlling the motors of the culture, the mass media, the schools and almost all the religious institutions, without the permission of the taxpayers! Mother Teresa did not proselytize in India; only when people were inspired and attracted to Mother Teresa because of her untiring and gratuitous example of concrete service to the poorest and dying in India, did people seek to discover Mother Teresa’s secret and hidden force which animated such heroic altruism. Contrast this with the secret agenda and hidden force which animates the diabolical and disguised egoism of so many groups promoting the culture of death today! “SATAN DISGUISES HIMSELF AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT” (2Cor 11:14)!

IS THIS MODERATOR DISCERNING THE TRUTH ONLY FROM HIS OWN HEAD or is he open to discern together to discover the truth that is outside of his head? Visit: “The Great Responsibility of Religious Leaders” (http://trueevangelization.blogspot.it/2013/05/great-responsibility.html). Is this way of doing things not very similar to how the architects of the culture of death divert the focus of attention FROM the real destroyers of people, of the family and of society, TO those who point to the these real hidden destroyers. Is this strategy not similar to how those who fight the murder of innocent and unwanted unborn babies are labeled as inhibiting the freedom and rights of assassins of the innocent unwanted human beings (with an adult soul from conception!) as we see today all over the world? Tomorrow the category of unwanted human beings will be changed and anyone of us can find ourselves in this new category just as it happened in Germany under Hitler! We the people, by not praying and diligently promoting Christian values in society, have allowed our government to shrewdly acquire to itself in an illicit way, against the constitution, the power that belongs only to the Creator of life, the power to decide who is to live and who is to die!

WORDS AND PROPAGANDA AND BRAINWASHING ARE FAR MORE POWERFUL than bullets and bombs in destroying people, families and societies. It seems that now the “Free Republic – The Premier Conservative Site on the Web” is subtly promoting the enslavement of the Republic by diverting our attention from the root of our destruction to superficial and much less significant causes of our destruction! The Truth Shall Set You Free (Jn 8:32)! False truth offered as “truth” will enslave those who do not see through the deception with much prayer and fasting and seeking to discover and do the will of God. Obvious lies are far less dangerous than beautiful lies and subtle anti-God ideologies promoted as the way to a better world here on earth, like false messiahs. We are not going toward a better world, we are going toward the great apostasy! 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; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/02/resignation-of-pope-benedict.html).

We have arrived to the point that sex outside of the Holy Bond of Marriage is considered sheik and the thing to do while chastity and the virtues are considered stupid and boring and for the unenlightened! “For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never gave suck!’ Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us’, and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?” (Lk 23:29-31). WE HAVE ARRIVED TO THE POINT OF CALLING THOSE WHO DENOUNCE SIN AND INDICATE THE GROUPS WHICH PROMOTE SIN AND DESTRUCTION AS “MONGERING HATRED”! Today John Paul Jones, who warned the early Americans that the English soldiers were coming, would be considered a traitor by the “Free Republic – The Premier Conservative Site on the Web”, as well as by the Obama administration and by the New World Order! The “Free Republic” gives the impression of standing up for the truth and fighting those who are against the republic while calling those (which include numerous popes and even a few past presidents of the USA) who identify the secret and most powerful groups destroying the republic and leading the world to the greatest and most atrocious dictatorship in the history of the world as “mongering hatred”! Free Republic claims to be “The Premier Conservative Site”! What are they conserving? The Freemasonry which is at the root of the organized destruction of souls, of families, of the Church and of our society?!?

BUT WE THE PEOPLE, we who call ourselves Christians and Catholics, HAVE ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN by our lack of prayer and unrepentant sins to the point that today the priests who preach the whole gospel and all of the teachings of the magisterium of the Church are labeled as ridged and old-fashioned, insensitive, lacking in compassion, divisive, judgmental, moralists. While at the same time the ones who maintain a culpable silence, the ones who tell their people what they think they want to hear are seen as understanding, sympathetic, pastorally sensitive and merciful. But this way of doing things is not true mercy; this is misguided compassion and does not lead to true happiness here on earth nor after death!

If one proclaims the whole Gospel, Christians are more and more accused of “mongering hatred” because Jesus, as should all Christians, loves the sinner but hates the sin. The liberals refuse to recognize this distinction so as to justify their condemnation and growing persecution of true Christians who LOVE the people who have a tendency toward homosexuality, or any other sin and disorder, but HATE the ACT of homosexuality, or any other act of sin which not only hurts the person committing the sin but hurts also those around him or her and the whole of society. THIS IS FALSE LOVE, MISGUIDED COMPASSION AND FALSE RELIGION IN THE NAME OF RELIGION AND OF “LOVE”! The recent Popes tell us that the gravest sin today is that we have lost the sense of sin.

More and more, as the gay activists take control of the motors of the culture and of our governments, FEWER AND FEWER RELIGIOUS LEADERS as well as “religion moderators” HAVE THE COURAGE TO TAKE A STAND FOR THE TRUTH, Who is Jesus Christ, and to make the distinction that Jesus Christ does, between the tendency to sin, as we all have (temptation), and to freely choose to commit the sin. Thus a very great number of these leaders succumb to accusing those who hate sin as “mongering hatred” in order to be “politically correct”. Is this not what the gay activist do, accusing true Christians of hating those with the tendency of homosexuality when in reality the true Christians want what is best for each person but hate the sin which does great harm to the person committing the sin as well as those involved and the whole society? “I am the Way, and the TRUTH, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me” (Jn 14:6)? What will Jesus say to religious leaders who DENY THE TRUTH? "But whosoever shall deny Me before men, HIM WILL I ALSO DENY before My Father Who is in heaven" (Mt 10:32-33)!

“6. Those who in spiritual fervor will embrace piety with charity and zeal for the truth, will suffer persecutions and insults as if they were schismatics and disobedient. Because their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say that in this way they render a great honor to God in killing and removing from the face of the earth such pestilent men. But the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted and He will save them, because they hoped in Him. And then in order to respect their Head, they will act according to the Faith and they will chose to obey God rather than men, gaining for themselves eternal life, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to die rather than consent to error and perfidy.” (The “Prophecy” of Saint Francis (Assisi); http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html).

Prophecy St Francis

THE “PROPHECY” OF SAINT FRANCIS:

Shortly before he died (1226), St. Francis of Assisi called together his brothers and warned them of future tribulations, saying:

1. Brothers act with strength and firmness in waiting for the Lord. A period of great tribulations and afflictions in which great dangers and temporal and spiritual discomforts will occur; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will abound.

2. The power of the demons will be greater than usual, the immaculate purity of our religious community and of others, will withered to the point that very few Christians will want to obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with a sincere heart and perfect charity. At the decisive moment of this crisis, a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the mortal poison of his error.

3. While the scandals will multiply, our religious congregation will be divided among others which will be completely destroyed, because their members will not oppose but will consent to error.

4. There will be such diversity of opinions and divisions among the people and among the religious and the clergy that if those evil days were not shortened, as foretold by the Gospel, even the elect would fall into error (if possible) (Mt 24:24), if in such a storm they were not protected by the immense mercy of God.

5. Then our Rule and our manner of life will be violently attacked by some. Terrible temptations will arise. Those who will overcome the great trial will receive the crown of life. Woe to the lukewarm ones who will place all of their hope in the religious life, without firmly resisting the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.

6. Those who in spiritual fervor will embrace piety with charity and zeal for the truth, will suffer persecutions and insults as if they were schismatics and disobedient. Because their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say that in this way they render a great honor to God in killing and removing from the face of the earth such pestilent men. But the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted and He will save them, because they hoped in Him. And then in order to respect their Head, they will act according to the Faith and they will chose to obey God rather than men, gaining for themselves eternal life; they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to die rather than consent to error and perfidy.

7. Some preachers will keep silent about the truth and, denying the truth, they will trample upon the truth. The sanctity of life will be held in derision by those who only profess it outwardly, and for this reason Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a worthy Pastor, but a destroyer.

Prophecies Emmerick

BLESSED ANNE-CATHERINE EMMERICK
Augustinian German nun (1774 – 1824) proclaimed Blessed on October 3, 2004 by Blessed John Paul II.
Born to poor but pious peasants. She was a very pious child who suffered with poor health, but who received visions and prophesies; they were so common that she thought all children could see the Child Jesus and the souls in Purgatory. She was able to diagnose illness and recommend cures, and to see a person's sins. She worked on her family's and other area farms, as a seamstress, and as a servant to a poor organist where she studied the instrument. Entered the Augustinian convent at Agnetenberg, Dulmen, Germany in 1802. Though her health was poor, her enthusiasm for the religious life was great, and she either energized her sisters, or put them off badly. Given to going into religious ecstasies in church, her cell, or while working. The convent was closed by government order in 1812, and Anne moved in with a poor widow. Her health failed, and instead of working as a servant, in 1813 she became a patient. Her visions and prophesies increased, and later that year she received the stigmata with wounds on her hands and feet, her head from the crown of thorns, and crosses on her chest, and the gift of inedia, living off nothing but Holy Communion for the rest of her life. She tried to hide the wounds, but word leaked out, and her vicar-general instituted a lengthy and detailed investigation; it was determined to be genuine. In 1818 she was relieved of the stigmata. In 1819 the government opened their own investigation. She was imprisoned, threatened, cajoled, and kept under 24-hour-a-day surveillance. The commission found no evidence either way, could not get Anne to change her story, eventually gave up, and failed to publish their findings. When they were forced to report, they declared the incident a fraud, but could not explain why they thought so, or why they had not published their findings. The poet Klemens Brentano visited Anne. She announced that she had seen him in a vision, and that he was to make a written record of the revelations that she received. He made notes of the messages, translating from Anne's Westphalian dialect to common German, getting her to confirm his version. In 1833 these were published as The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to the Meditations of Anne Catherine Emmerich. This was followed in 1852 by The Life of The Blessed Virgin Mary, and a three-volume Life of Our Lord from 1858 to 1880. While many such relevatory works deal with spirituality and ideas, these are very much straight-forward narratives and descriptions of events, yet have been the source of encouragement for many. Her Cause for Canonization formally introduced on 14 November 1892. Due to accusations about her vow of chastity, the investigation was halted on 30 November 1928. However, the accusations were proven false, and the investigation resumed on 18 May 1973. (1)
Taken from the Patron Saints at http://www.catholic-forum.com/saints/saintafb.htm.
March 22, 1820: “I saw very clearly the errors the aberrations an the countless sins of men. I saw the folly and the wickedness of their actions, against all truth and all reason. Priests were among them, and I gladly endured my suffering so that they may return to a better mind” (1)
April 12, 1820: “I had another vision of the great tribulation. It seems to me that a concession was demanded from the clergy which could not be granted. I saw many older priests, especially one, who wept bitterly. A few younger ones were also weeping. But others, and the lukewarm among them, readily did what was demanded. It was as if people were splitting into two camps…” (2)
May 13, 1820: “I SAW ALSO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO POPES. . . I SAW HOW BALEFUL WOULD BE THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS FALSE CHURCH. I saw it increase in size; heretics of every kind came into the city (of Rome). The local clergy grew lukewarm, and I saw a great darkness” (3)
“Then the vision seemed to extend on every side. Whole Catholic communities were being oppressed, harassed, confined, and deprived of their freedom. I saw many churches closed down, great miseries everywhere, wars and bloodshed. A wild and ignorant mob took violent action. But it did not last long…” (4)
“Once more I saw that the Church of Peter was undermined by a plan evolved by the SECRET SECT, while storms were damaging it. But I saw also that help was coming when distress had reached its peak. I saw again the Blessed Virgin ascend on the Church and spread her mantle [over it]. I saw a Pope who was at once gentle, and very firm....  I saw a great renewal, and the Church rose high in the sky….” (5)
July, 1820: “I saw the Holy Father surrounded by traitors and in great distress about the Church. He had visions and apparitions in his hour of greatest need. I saw many good pious Bishops; but they were weak and wavering, their cowardice often got the upper hand…Then I saw  darkness spreading around and people no longer seeking the true Church.” (6)
July 12, 1820: “I had a vision of the holy Emperor Henry. I saw him at night kneeling alone at the foot of the main altar in a great and beautiful church…and I saw the Blessed Virgin coming down all alone. She laid on the altar a red cloth covered with white linen. She placed a book inlaid with precious stones. She lit the candles and the perpetual lamp…Then came the Saviour Himself clad in priestly vestments. He was carrying the chalice and the veil. Two angels were serving Him and two more were following…His chasuble was a full and heavy mantle in which red and white could be seen in transparency, and gleaming with jewels…Although there was no altar bell, the cruets were there. The wine was as red as blood, and there was also some water. The Mass was short. The Gospel of St. John was not read at the end. When the Mass had ended, Mary came up to Henry, (The Emperor) and she extended her right hand towards him, saying that it was in recognition of his purity. Then she urged him not to falter. Thereupon I saw an angel, and he touched the sinew of his hip, like Jacob. Henry was in great pain; and from that day on he walked with a limp…” (7)
August to October, 1820: “I see more martyrs, not now but in the future…I saw the secret sect relentlessly undermining the great Church. Near them I saw a horrible beast coming up from the sea... All over the world, good and devout people especially the clergy were harassed oppressed and put into prison. I had the feeling that they would become martyrs one day.” (8)
“When the Church had been for the most part destroyed [by the secret sect], and when only the sanctuary and altar were still standing, I saw the wreckers enter the Church with the Beast. There they met a Woman of noble carriage who seemed to be with child because she walked slowly. At this sight, the enemies were terrorized, and the Beast could not take but another step forward. It projected its neck towards the Woman as if to devour her, but the Woman turned about and bowed down [towards the altar], her head touching the ground. Thereupon, I saw the Beast taking to flight towards the sea again, and the enemies were fleeing in the greatest confusion.... Then, I saw in the great distance great legion approaching. In the foreground I saw a man on a white horse. Prisoners were set free and joined them. All enemies were pursued. Then, I saw that the Church was being promptly rebuilt, and she was more magnificent than ever before….” (9)
August 10, 1820: “I see the Holy Father in great anguish. He lives in a palace other than before and he admits only a limited number of friends near him. I fear that the Holy Father will suffer many more trials before he dies. I see that the false Church of darkness is making progress and I see the dreadful influence it has on the people. The Holy Father and the Church are verily in so great a distress that one must implore God night and day…” (10)
“I have been told to pray much for the Church and the Pope…The people must pray earnestly for the extirpation (Rooting out, destruction) of the dark church.” (11)
“Last night I was taken to Rome where the Holy Father immersed in his sorrow, is still hiding to elude dangerous demands (made upon him). He is still very weak, and exhausted by sorrows, cares and prayers. He can now trust but few people. That is mainly why he is hiding. But he still has with him an aged priest who has much simplicity and godliness. He is his friend and because of his simplicity they did not think it would be worth removing him. But this man receives many graces from God. He sees and notices a great many things which he faithfully reports to the Holy Father. It was required of me to inform him while he was praying, of the traitors and evil doers who were to be found among the high ranking servants living close to him, so that he might be made aware of it” (12)
August 25, 1820: “I do not know in what manner I was taken to Rome last night, but I found myself near the Church of St Mary Major, and I saw many poor people who were greatly distressed and worried because the Pope was to be seen nowhere, and also on account of the restlessness and the alarming rumours in the city. These people did not seem to expect the Church doors to open; they only wanted to pray outside. An inner urging had left them there individually. But I was in the Church, and I opened the doors. They came in, surprised and frightened because the doors had opened. It seems to me that I was behind the door, and they could not see me. There was no office on in the Church. But the sanctuary lamps were lit. The people prayed quite peacefully…” (13)
“Then I saw an apparition of the Mother of God, and she said that the tribulation would be very great. She added that people must pray fervently with outstretched arms, be it only long enough to say three Our Fathers. This was the way her Son prayed for them on the Cross. They must rise at twelve at night, and pray in this manner; and they must keep coming to the Church. They must pray above all for the Church of Darkness to leave Rome...“ (14)
“She (The Holy Mother) said a great many others things that it pains me to relate: she said that if only one priest could offer the bloodless sacrifice as worthily and with the same disposition as the Apostles, he could avert all the disasters (that are to come). To my knowledge the people in the Church did not see the apparition, but they must have been stirred by something supernatural, because as soon as the Holy Virgin had said that they must pray God with outstretched arms , they all raised their arms. These were all good and devout people, and they did not know where help and guidance should be sought. There were no traitors and enemies among them, yet they were afraid of one another. Once can judge thereby what the situation was like. “ (15)
September 10, 1820: “I saw the Church of St Peter: it has been destroyed but for the Sanctuary and the main altar. St Michael came down into the Church, clad in his suit of armor, and he paused, threatening with his sword and number of unworthy pastors who wanted to enter. That part of the Church which had been destroyed was promptly fenced in with light timber so that the Divine office might be celebrated as it should. Then, from all over the world came priests and laymen and they rebuilt the stone walls, since the wreckers had been unable to move the heavy foundation stones. And then I saw that the Church was being promptly rebuilt and She was more magnificent than ever before…” (16)
September 12, 1820: “I saw a strange church being built against every rule…No angels were supervising the building operations. In that church, nothing came from high above…There was only division and chaos. It is probably a church of human creation, following the latest fashion, as well as the new heterodox Church of Rome, which seems of the same kind…” (17)
“I saw again the strange big church that was being built there (in Rome). There was nothing holy in it. I saw this just as I saw a movement led by Ecclesiastics to which contributed angels, saints and other Christians. But there (in the strange big church) all the work was being done mechanically (i.e., according to set rules and formulae). Everything was being done, according to human reason. I saw all sorts of people, things, doctrines, and opinions. There was something proud, presumptuous, and violent about it, and they seemed to be very successful. I did not see a single Angel nor a single saint helping in the work. But far away in the background, I saw the seat of a cruel people armed with spears, and I saw a laughing figure which said: 'Do build it as solid as you can; we will put it to the ground’.” (18)
“I saw that many of the instruments in the new Church, such as spears and darts, were meant to be used against the living Church. Everyone dragged in something different: clubs, rods, pumps, cadgels, puppets, mirrors, trumpets, horns bellows - all sorts of things. In the cave below (the sacristy) some people kneaded bread, but nothing came of it; it would not rise. The men in the little mantles brought wood to the steps of the pulpit to make a fire. They puffed and blew and laboured hard, but the fire would not burn. All they produced was smoke and fumes. Then they broke a hole in the roof and ran up a pipe, but the smoke would not rise, and the whole place became black and suffocating. Some blew the horns so violently that the tears streamed from their eyes. All in this church belonged to the earth, returned to the earth. All was dead, the work of human skill, a church of the latest style, a church of man's invention like the new heterodox church in Rome” (19)
September 27, 1820: “I saw deplorable things: they were gambling, drinking, and talking in church; they were also courting women. All sorts of abominations were perpetrated there. Priests allowed everything and said Mass with much irreverence. I saw that few of them were still godly, and only a few had sound views on things.  I also saw Jews standing under the porch of the Church. All these things caused me much distress.” (20)
October 1, 1820: “The Church is in great danger. We must pray so that the Pope may not leave Rome; countless evils would result if he did. They are now demanding something from him. The Protestant doctrine and that of the schismatic Greeks are to spread everywhere. I now see that in this place (Rome) the (Catholic) Church is being so cleverly undermined, that there hardly remain a hundred or so priests who have not been deceived. They all work for destruction, even the clergy. A great devastation is now near at hand.” (21)
“In those days Faith will fall very low and it will be preserved in some places only” (22)
“The Little Black Man in Rome, whom I see so often, has many working for him without their clearly knowing for what end. He has his agents in the New Black Church also. If the Pope leaves Rome, the enemies of the Church will get the upper hand. I see the Little Black Man in his own country committing many thefts and falsifying things generally. Religion is there so skillfully undermined and stifled that there are scarcely 100 faithful priests. I cannot say how it is, but I see fog and darkness increasing ... All must be rebuilt soon; for everyone, even ecclesiastics, are laboring to destroy (and) ruin is at hand. The 2 enemies of the Church who have lost their accomplice are firmly resolved to destroy the pious and learned men that stand in their way…” (23 )
October 4, 1820: “When I saw the Church of St Peter in ruins and the manner in which so many of the clergy were themselves busy at this work of destruction –none of them wishing to do it openly in front of the others  -I was in such distress that I cried out to Jesus with all my might, imploring His mercy. Then I saw before me the Heavenly Spouse, and He spoke to me for a long time…He said, among other things, that this translation of the Church from one place to another meant that she would seem to be in complete decline. But she would rise again; even if there remained but one Catholic, the Church would conquer again because she does not rest on human counsels and intelligence. It was shown to me that there were almost no Christians left in the old acceptation of the word” (24)
October 7, 1820: “As I was going through Rome with St. Francoise and the other saint, we saw a great palace engulfed in flames from top to bottom. I was very much afraid that the occupants would be burned to death because no one came forward to put out the fire. As we came nearer, however, the fire abated and we saw the blackened building. We went through a number of magnificent rooms (untouched by the fire), and we finally reached the Pope. He was sitting in the dark and slept in a large arm-chair. He was very ill and weak; he could no longer walk. The ecclesiastics in the inner circle looked insincere and lacking in zeal; I did not like them. I told the Pope of the bishops who are to be appointed soon. I told him also that he must not leave Rome. If he did so, it would be chaos. He thought that the evil was inevitable and that he should leave in order to save many things beside himself. He was very much inclined to leave Rome, and he was insistently urged to do so. The Pope is still attached to the things of this earth in many ways…” (25)
“The Church is completely isolated and as if completely deserted. It seems that everyone is running away. Everywhere I see great misery, hatred, treason, rancor, confusion and utter blindness. O city! O city! What is threatening thee? The storm is coming, do be watchful!…” (26)
June 1, 1821: “Among the strangest things that I saw, were long processions of bishops. Their thoughts and utterances were made known to me through images issuing from their mouths. Their faults towards religion were shown by external deformities. A few had only a body, with a dark cloud of fog instead of a head. Others had only a head, their bodies and hearts were like thick vapors. Some were lame; others were paralytics; others were asleep or staggering. I saw what I believe to be nearly all the bishops of the world, but only a small number were perfectly sound. I also saw the Holy Father - God-fearing and prayerful. Nothing left to be desired in his appearance, but he was weakened by old age and by much suffering. His head was lolling from side to side, and it dropped onto his chest as if he was falling asleep He often fainted and seemed to be dying. But when he was praying, he was often comforted by apparitions from Heaven. Then, his head was erect, but as soon as it dropped again onto his chest, I saw a number of people looking quickly right and left, that is, in the direction of the world…” (27)
“Then I saw that everything pertaining to Protestantism was gradually gaining the upper hand, and the Catholic religion fell into complete decadence. Most priests were lured by the glittering but false knowledge of young school-teachers, and they all contributed to the work of destruction. In those days, Faith will fall very low, and it will be preserved in some places only, in a few cottages and in a few families which God has protected from disasters and wars…” (28)
(No precise date), 1820-1821: “I also saw the various regions of the earth. My Guide (Jesus) named Europe and pointing to a small and sandy region, He uttered these words: ‘Here is Prussia (East Germany), the enemy.’ Then He showed me another place, to the north, and He said: ‘This is Moskva, the land of Moscow, bringing many evils’.” (29)
(No precise date), 1820-1821: “I see many excommunicated ecclesiastics who do not seem to be concerned about it, nor even aware of it. Yet, they are (ipso factor) excommunicated whenever they cooperated to [sic] enterprises, enter into associations, and embrace opinions on which an anathema has been cast. It can be seen thereby that God ratifies the decrees, orders, and interdictions issued by the Head of the Church, and that He keeps them in force even though men show no concern for them, reject them, or laugh them to scorn.” (30)
January 27, 1822: I saw a new Pope who will be very strict. He will estrange from him the cold and lukewarm bishops. He is not a Roman, but he is Italian. He comes from a place which is not very far from Rome, and I think he comes from a devout family of royal blood. But there must still be for a while much fighting and unrest” (31)
October 22, 1822: “Very bad times will come when non-Catholics will lead many people astray. A great confusion will result. I saw the battle also. The enemies were far more numerous, but the small army of the faithful cut down whole rows of enemy soldiers. During the battle, the Blessed Virgin stood on a hill, wearing a suit armour. It was a terrible war. At the end, only a few fighters for the just cause survived, but the victory was theirs…” (32 )
April 22, 1823: “I saw that many pastors allowed themselves to be taken up with ideas that were dangerous to the Church. They were building a great, strange, and extravagant Church. Everyone was to be admitted in it in order to be united and have equal rights: Evangelicals, Catholics sects of every description. Such was to be the new Church…But God had other designs…” (33)
“I see that when the Second Coming of Christ approaches, a bad priest will do much harm to the Church. When the time of the reign of Antichrist is near, a false religion will appear which will be opposed to the unity of God and His Church. This will cause the greatest schism the world has ever known. The nearer the time of the end, the more the darkness of Satan will spread on earth, the greater will be the number of the children of corruption, and the number of the just will correspondingly diminish…” (34)
On Paris: “Frightful misery, corruption and abomination reigned in the city. It appeared to be in sinking condition, and that no stone would be left upon another” (35) 
On the Ecumenical Church: “They built a large, singular, extravagant church which was to embrace all creeds with equal rights: Evangelicals, Catholics, and all denominations, a true communion of the unholy with one shepherd and one flock. There was to be a Pope, a salaried Pope, without possessions. All was made ready, many things finished; but, in place of an altar, were only abomination and desolation. Such was the new church to be, and it was for it that he had set fire to the old one; but God designed otherwise….” (36)
On Schismatic Christians:  “I saw several churches, or rather meeting-houses surmounted by weather-cocks, the congregations, disunited from the Church, running here and there like beggars hurrying to places where bread is distributed, having no connection with either the Church Triumphant or the Church Suffering. They were not in a regularly founded, living Church, one with the Church Militant, Suffering, and Triumphant, nor did they receive the Body of the Lord, but only bread. They who were in error through no fault of their own and who piously and ardently longed for the Body of Jesus Christ, were spiritually consoled, but not by their communion. They who habitually communicated without this ardent love received nothing but a child of the Church receives an immense increase of strength…” (37)
On Rome: “I came to the Church of Peter and Paul (Rome) and saw a dark world of distress, confusion, and corruption, through which shone countless graces from thousands of saints who there repose…” (38)
On Portugal: “This country was pretty tranquil compared  with that of Saint Ignatius, which I now entered and found in frightful misery. Darkness lay over the whole land where reposes the treasure of the saint's graces and merits. I was at the central point" (Note: I guess she means Madrid) "and I recognized the place where long before I had had a vision of people cast into a fiery furnace around which their enemies were gathered, but they who had kindled the flames were themselves consumed by them. I saw unheard-of abominations spreading over the land, and my guide said to me: this is Babel. I saw throughout the whole country a chain of secret societies with influences at work like those of Babel. They were connected with the building of a tower by a web fine as that of a spider, which extended up through all ages. Its highest blossom was the diabolical woman Semiramis. I saw all going to ruin, sacred things destroyed, impiety and heresy flowing in. A civil war was brewing and a destructive internal crisis was at hand.” (39)
More on the Ecumenical Church: “I saw the fatal consequences of this counterfeit church: I. saw it increase; I saw heretics of all kinds flocking to the city. I saw the ever-increasing tepidity of the clergy, the circle of darkness ever widening…” (40)
On the restoration: “Again I saw in the midst of these disasters the twelve new Apostles labouring in different countries, unknown to one another, each receiving streams of living water from on high They all did the same work. They know not whence they received their tasks; but as soon as one was finished, another was ready for them…” (41)
On the Pope’s confidant: “Ah! a pious, parish-priest has just died in Rome of old age! I received the general absolution with him! His soul went straight to purgatory, but he will very soon be released. We must pray for him. He was greatly attached to the Pope during whose captivity he did much good in secret. The Pope himself has not long to live... That good old priest was one of the twelve unknown Apostles whom I always see supporting the Church and of whom I have often spoke. He is the second that has died. There are now only ten; but I see others growing up. He was a friend and counsellor of the Holy Father, but he would never give up his parish for a higher position.” (42)
On Germany: “I saw in Germany among world-wise ecclesiastics, and enlightened Protestants, plans formed for the blending of religious creeds, the suppression of Papal authority, the appointment of more superiors, the diminishing of expenses and number of ecclesiastics, etc., which projects found abettors in many of the Roman prelates.” (43)
“They want to take from the shepherd his own pasture grounds! They want to fill his place with one who will hand all over to the enemy! Then she shook her hand indignantly, crying out: ‘O ye  German cheats! Wait awhile! you will not succeed! The Shepherd stands upon a rock! O ye priests!…ye sleep, and the sheepfold is everywhere on  fire! You do nothing! O how you will bewail this some day!…” (44)
On the End things: “All around me I see a terrible, bloody war, which approaches from Midnight, the North, and Evening, the East. I heard that Lucifer -- if I am not wrong, would be let go for a time, fifty or sixty years before the year 2000. I saw the earth covered with darkness, everything was withered and barren, everything made the impression of pining away. It seems that even the waters of the springs were exhausted. I saw how the labour of darkness multiplied among the people, I saw countries and people in the greatest of distress, and fighting each other violently. In the centre of the battleground was a giant abyss, into which the warring factions seemed to fall…” (45)
 “I wish the time were here when the Pope dressed in red will reign. I see the Apostles, not those of the past, but the apostles of the last times, and it seems to me, the Pope is among them…” (46)
“I was likewise told if I remember right that he (Satan) will be unchained for a time fifty or sixty years before the year of Christ 2000…” (47)
 “A pale faced man floated slowly over the earth and, loosening the cloths which wrapped around his sword, he threw them on sleeping cities, which were bound by them. This figure also dropped pestilence on Russia, Italy, and Spain. A red noose lay around Berlin, and from there it came to Westphalia. Now the man's sword was naked, bands red as blood hung from its hilt and blood trickled from it on Westphalia...” (48)
“The Jews shall return to Palestine, and become Christians toward the end of the world.” (49)
