Prophecy in Perspective

 

Confronting the subject of prophecy today
is rather like looking at wreckage after a shipwreck.

— Archbishop Rino Fisichella,
“Prophecy” in Dictionary of Fundamental Theology, p. 788

 

AS the world draws closer and closer to the end of this age, prophecy is becoming more frequent, more direct, and even more specific. But how do we respond to the more sensational of Heaven’s messages? What do we do when seers feel “off” or their messages simply don’t resonate?

The following is a guide for new and regular readers in the hopes to provide balance on this delicate subject so that one can approach prophecy without anxiety or fear that one is somehow being misled or deceived. Continue reading

Grave Warnings

 

Mark Mallett is a former television reporter with CTV Edmonton and award-winning documentarian and the author of The Final Confrontation and The Now Word.


 

IT is increasingly the mantra of our generation — the “go to” phrase to seemingly end all discussions, resolve all problems, and calm all troubled waters: “Follow the science.” During this pandemic, you hear politicians breathlessly evoke it, bishops repeating it, laity wielding it and social media proclaiming it. The problem is that some of the most credible voices in the fields of virology, immunology, microbiology, etc. today are being silenced, suppressed, censored or ignored at this hour. Hence, “follow the science” de facto means “follow the narrative.”

And that is potentially catastrophic if the narrative is not ethically grounded.Continue reading

Your Questions on the Pandemic

 

SEVERAL new readers are asking questions on the pandemic—on the science, the morality of lockdowns, mandatory masking, church closures, vaccines and more. So the following is a summary of key articles related to the pandemic to help you form your conscience, to educate your families, to give you ammunition and courage to approach your politicians and support your bishops and priests, who are under immense pressure. Any way you cut it, you’re going to have to make unpopular choices today as the Church enters deeper into her Passion as each day passes by. Don’t be intimidated either by the censors, “fact-checkers” or even family who try to bully you into the powerful narrative drummed out each minute and hour on the radio, television, and social media.

The Coming Descent of the Divine Will

 

ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEATH
OF SERVANT OF GOD LUISA PICCARRETA

 

HAVE you ever wondered why God continually sends the Virgin Mary to appear in the world? Why not the great preacher, St. Paul… or the great evangelist, St. John… or the first pontiff, St. Peter, the “rock”? The reason is because Our Lady is inseparably linked to the Church, both as her spiritual mother and as a “sign”:Continue reading

I was passing through a trade fair when I came across a “Christian Cowboy” booth. Sitting on a ledge were a stack of NIV bibles with a snapshot of horses on the cover. I picked one up, then looked at the three men in front of me grinning proudly beneath the brim of their Stetsons.

Preparing for the Era of Peace

Men must look for the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ.
—POPE PIUS XI, Quas Primas, n. 1; Dec. 11th, 1925

Holy Mary, Mother of God, our Mother,
teach us to believe, to hope, to love with you.
Show us the way to his Kingdom!
Star of the Sea, shine upon us and guide us on our way!
—POPE BENEDICT XVI, Spe Salvin. 50

 

WHAT essentially is the “Era of Peace” that is coming after these days of darkness? Why did the papal theologian for five popes, including St. John Paul II, say it will be “the greatest miracle in the history of the world, second only to the Resurrection?”[1]Cardinal Mario Luigi Ciappi was the papal theologian for Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, and St. John Paul II; from Family Catechism, (Sept. 9th, 1993), p. 35 Why did Heaven say to Elizabeth Kindelmann of Hungary…Continue reading

A Father of Divine Mercy

 
I HAD the pleasure of speaking alongside Fr. Seraphim Michalenko, MIC in California at a few churches some eight years ago. During our time in the car, Fr. Seraphim confided to me that there was a time when the diary of St. Faustina was in danger of being totally suppressed due to a bad translation. He stepped in, however, and fixed the translation, which paved the way for her writings to be disseminated. He eventually became the Vice Postulator for her canonization.
