The Beast Beyond Compare

for November 23rd-28th, 2015

Liturgical texts here


THE Mass readings this week that address the signs of the “end times” will no doubt evoke the familiar, if not easy dismissal that “everyone thinks their times are the end times.” Right? We’ve all heard that repeated again and again. That was certainly true of the early Church, until Sts. Peter and Paul began to temper expectations:

Revolution Now!

A poster image cut from a magazine published after the French Revolution


SIGNS of this Global Revolution underway are everywhere, spreading like a black canopy over the entire globe. Taking all things into consideration, from the unprecedented apparitions of Mary throughout the world to the prophetic statements of the popes in the past century (see Why Aren’t the Popes Shouting?), it appears to be the beginning of the final labor pains of this era, of what Pope Pius XI called “one convulsion following upon another” throughout the centuries.

The Seedbed of This Revolution

for November 9th-21st, 2015

Liturgical texts here


Dear brothers and sisters, this and the next writing deal with the Revolution spreading globally in our world. They are knowledge, important knowledge to understand what is taking place around us. As Jesus once said, “I have told you this so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you.”[1]John 16:4 However, knowledge does not replace obedience; it does not substitute relationship with the Lord. So may these writings inspire you to more prayer, to more contact with the Sacraments, to a greater love for our families and neighbours, and to living more authentically in the present moment. You are loved.


THERE is a Great Revolution underway in our world. But many do not realize it. It is like an enormous oak tree. You don’t know how it was planted, how it grew, nor its stages as a sapling. Neither do you really see it continuing to grow, unless you stop and examine its branches and compare them to the year before. Nonetheless, it makes its presence known as it towers above, its branches blocking out the sun, its leaves obscuring the light.

So it is with this present Revolution. How it came to be, and where it is going, has been prophetically unfolded for us these past two weeks in the Mass readings.

Our Lady of the Cab Ride


HE was a Muslim, and he was angry. As my fifteen minute cab ride unfolded, the young, stocky Islamic man at the wheel did not mince words.

The Hour of the Sword


Brothers and sisters, several weeks ago, I came into my office where I’d just been a few minutes before, and the statue of Our Lady was tipped over and the crucifix of Jesus suddenly broken, Our Lord dangling by one arm. I stood there in stunned silence realizing that I was under an attack of some kind. I could feel it that day, and have since. In this same time frame, we have had our washer and dryer break down, all of our vehicles hit with major repairs in the thousands, our farm machinery breaking down, even the new dryer subsequently broke!… and on and on. And I, personally, have never experienced such oppression in my thoughts and prayers as the past month, to the point where writing has become difficult at times. And so, this morning I’m reeling a bit as I am dealing with multiple repairs and a mounting debt to keep our farm and family moving forward. As such, I have to deal with these issues….

I want to speak to you more about prayer, and going deeper. But for this moment, I want to repost a writing which I felt urged to do anyway last Friday morning for my new readers. That evening, the attacks in Paris began. This, dear friends, is just the beginning, as you know. In fact, I have intentionally left my last writing A Time to Weep sitting there this past week, because it should speak to those with ears to listen. I had read that meditation at a Remembrance Day service last Wednesday. When I was done, I looked at the congregation and held up my Rosary and said, “This is the answer!! This is the weapon of our times!” Yes, there is no where to hide from this Storm, save, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which the Father has given us as our refuge. There, we will find the strength, wisdom, and grace, and yes, joy, that we need for this hour… the Hour of the Sword.

He is Our Healing

Healing Touch by Frank P. Ordaz


BEHIND this writing apostolate is a whole other level of ministry that happens through my personal correspondence with souls from around the world. And lately, there is a consistent thread of fear, even though that fear is for different reasons.

After the Illumination


All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Savior were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day. —Divine Mercy in My Soul, Jesus to St. Faustina, n. 83


AFTER the Sixth Seal is broken, the world experiences an “illumination of conscience”—a moment of reckoning (see The Seven Seals of Revolution). St. John then writes that the Seventh Seal is broken and there is silence in heaven “for about half an hour.” It is a pause before the Eye of the Storm passes over, and the winds of purification begin to blow again.

Silence in the presence of the Lord GOD! For near is the day of the LORD… (Zeph 1:7)

It is a pause of grace, of Divine Mercy, before the Day of Justice arrives…

The Return of the Jews


WE are on the very cusp of some astounding events in the Church and the world. And among them, the return of the Jews to the fold of Christ.

“the smoke of Satan is seeping into the Church of God through the cracks in the walls.” —POPE PAUL VI, first quote: Homily during the Mass for Sts. Peter & Paul, June 29, 1972


THERE is an elephant in the living room. But few want to talk about it. Most choose to ignore it. The problem is that the elephant is trampling all of the furniture and soiling the carpet. And the elephant is this: the Church is polluted with apostasy—the falling away from the faith—and it has a name: “Wormwood”.

Fighting Fire with Fire

DURING one Mass, I was attacked by the “accuser of the brethren” (Rev 12:10). The entire Liturgy rolled by and I had barely been able to absorb a word as I wrestled against the discouragement of the enemy. I began my morning prayer, and the (convincing) lies intensified, so much so, I could do nothing but pray aloud, my mind completely under siege.
