A Time of War

 

There is an appointed time for everything,
and a time for every thing under the heavens.
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant.
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to tear down, and a time to build.
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance…
A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.

(Today’s First Reading)

 

IT may seem that the author of Ecclesiastes is saying that tearing down, killing, war, death and mourning are simply inevitable, if not “appointed” moments throughout history. Rather, what is described in this famous biblical poem is the state of fallen man and the inevitability of reaping what has been sown. 

Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7)Continue reading

The Great Meshing

 

THIS past week, a “now word” from 2006 has been in the forefront of my mind. It is the meshing of many global systems into one, overwhelmingly powerful new order. It is what St. John called a “beast”. Of this global system, which seeks to control every aspect of people’s lives — their commerce, their movement, their health, etc. — St. John hears the people cry out in his vision…Continue reading

The Tragic Irony

(AP Photo, Gregorio Borgia/Photo, The Canadian Press)

 

SEVERAL Catholic churches were burned to the ground and dozens more vandalized in Canada last year as allegations surfaced that “mass graves” were discovered at former residential schools there. These were institutions, established by the Canadian government and run in part with the assistance of the Church, to “assimilate” indigenous peoples into Western society. The allegations of mass graves, as it turns out, have never been proven and further evidence suggests that they are patently false.[1]cf. nationalpost.com; What is not untrue is that many individuals were separated from their families, forced to abandon their native tongue, and in some cases, abused by those running the schools. And thus, Francis has flown to Canada this week to issue an apology to the indigenous people who were wronged by members of the Church.Continue reading

The Great Divide

 

I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!…

Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth?
No, I tell you, but rather division.
From now on a household of five will be divided,
three against two and two against three…

(Luke 12:49-53)

So a division occurred in the crowd because of him.
(John 7:43)

 

I LOVE that word from Jesus: “I have come to set the earth on fire and how I wish it were already blazing!” Our Lord wants a People who are on fire with love. A People whose life and presence ignites others to repent and seek their Savior, thereby expanding the mystical Body of Christ.

And yet, Jesus follows this word with a warning that this Divine Fire will actually divide. It doesn’t take a theologian to understand why. Jesus said, “I am the truth” and we see daily how His truth divides us. Even Christians who love the truth can recoil when that sword of truth pierces their own heart. We can become proud, defensive, and argumentative when faced with the truth of ourselves. And is it not true that today we see the Body of Christ being broken and divided again in a most egregious way as bishop opposes bishop, cardinal stands against cardinal — just as Our Lady predicted at Akita?

 

The Great Purification

The past two months whilst driving back and forth numerous times between Canadian provinces to move my family, I have had a lot of hours to reflect on my ministry, what is happening in the world, what is happening in my own heart. In summary, we are passing through one of the greatest purifications of humanity since the Flood. That means we are also being sifted like wheat — everyone, from pauper to pope. Continue reading

The Judgment of the West

 

WE have posted a host of prophetic messages this past week, both current and from decades past, on Russia and their role in these times. Yet, it’s not only seers but the voice of the Magisterium that has prophetically warned of this present hour…Continue reading

The Jonah Hour

 

AS I was praying before the Blessed Sacrament this past weekend, I felt Our Lord’s intense grief — sobbing, it seemed, that mankind has so refused His love. For the next hour, we wept together… me, profusely begging His forgiveness for my and our collective failure to love Him in return… and He, because humanity has now unleashed a Storm of its own making.Continue reading

The Last Stand

The Mallett Clan riding for freedom…

 

We cannot let freedom die with this generation.
—Army Major Stephen Chledowski, Canadian soldier; February 11th, 2022

We are approaching the final hours…
Our future is quite literally, freedom or tyranny…
—Robert G., a concerned Canadian (from Telegram)

Would that all men would judge of the tree by its fruit,
and would acknowledge the seed and origin of the evils which press upon us,
and of the dangers that are impending!
We have to deal with a deceitful and crafty enemy, who,
gratifying the ears of people and of princes,
has ensnared them by smooth speeches and by adulation. 
—POPE LEO XIII, Humanus Genusn. 28

An Unapologetic Apocalyptic View

 

…there is none more blind than he who does not want to see,
and despite the signs of the times foretold,
even those who have faith
refuse to look at what is happening. 
Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, October 26th, 2021 

 

I AM supposed to be embarrassed by this article’s title — ashamed to utter the phrase “end times” or quote the Book of Revelation much less dare to mention Marian apparitions. Such antiquities supposedly belong in the dust bin of medieval superstitions alongside archaic beliefs in “private revelation”, “prophecy” and those ignominious expressions of “the mark of the beast” or “Antichrist.” Yes, better to leave them to that garish era when Catholic churches billowed with incense as they churned out saints, priests evangelized pagans, and commoners actually believed that faith could drive away plagues and demons. In those days, statues and icons not only adorned churches but public buildings and homes. Imagine that. The “dark ages” — enlightened atheists call them.Continue reading

Fatima, and the Great Shaking

 

SOME time ago, as I pondered why the sun was seemingly darting about the sky at Fatima, the insight came to me that it was not a vision of the sun moving per se, but the earth. That’s when I pondered the connection between the “great shaking” of the earth foretold by many credible prophets, and the “miracle of the sun.” However, with the recent release of Sr. Lucia’s memoirs, a new insight into the Third Secret of Fatima was revealed in her writings. Up till this point, what we knew of a postponed chastisement of the earth (that has given us this “time of mercy”) was described on the Vatican’s website:Continue reading
