On the Threshold


THIS week, a deep, inexplicable sadness came over me, as it has in the past. But I know now what this is: it is a drop of sadness from the Heart of God—that man has rejected Him to the point of bringing humanity to this painful purification. It is the sadness that God was not allowed to triumph over this world through love but must do so, now, through justice. 

So, the Chastisements that have occurred are nothing other than the preludes of those that will come. How many more cities will be destroyed…? My Justice can bear no more; My will wants to Triumph, and would want to Triumph by means of Love in order to Establish Its Kingdom. But man does not want to come to meet this Love, therefore, it is necessary to use Justice. —Jesus to Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta; Nov. 16th, 1926

Clearly many people, dutifully masked and carefully spaced six feet from their neighbour, believe that life is going to go back to normal “if we just obey the health authorities.” But they believe what is now an obvious fable: that all we need to do is “flatten the curve” in order for life to resume. That “flattening” moment happened a good while ago. No, now it has apparently become “we must not see any more cases.” And that is impossible.

Precisely. Because what I, and many other sincere souls, have been trying to warn people about for months now is that this is just the beginning of what the United Nations has openly admitted to being a “Great Reset.” There is no returning to what was. This is a Global Revolution to bring about global Communism for the “common good,” for the “sake of the planet” and more “equality.” Indeed, with the emergence of new cases of the coronavirus—even if the vast majority of these people aren’t dying, the hospitals remain empty, and people may not even have symptoms—it is enough for lockdown to begin again “for the common good.” Except, this time, we are going to see new radical measures that include mandatory tests, mandatory vaccines, removing infected individuals from their homes, etc. These are things we have heard straight from the mouths of UN and government officials, not “conspiracy theorists.” 



This isn’t, and never was, about the “common good.” Because destroying people’s livelihoods and businesses is not for the “common good.” One example: a third of restaurants in the United States alone face permanent closure due to the bludgeon of quarantining the healthy.[1]Bloomberg, July 1st, 2020 Nor is damaging the global supply chain for the “common good.”[2]nationalinterest.org; hub.jhu.edu In Canada, I have spoken to numerous small and large businesses who simply cannot get stock anymore of basic things. Nor is destroying freedom through irrational, random and inconsistent restrictions for the “common good” as, overnight, people have become tense, fearful, and isolated from one another. As such, substance abuse, suicide and murder rates have soared. Finally, closing churches and depriving the faithful of the Sacraments is not for the “common good” since it is by the Sacraments (Baptism, Eucharist, Confession) that we receive the graces for our salvation and sanctification. 

Ah! my daughter, when I allow that churches remain deserted, ministers dispersed, Masses reduced, it means that the sacrifices are offenses to Me, the prayers insults, the adorations, irreverences, the confessions amusements, and without fruits.  Therefore, no longer finding My glory, but rather, offenses, nor any good for them, since they are of no use to Me any more, I remove them.  However, this snatching ministers away from my Sanctuary means also that things have reached the ugliest point, and that the variety of scourges will multiply.  How hard man is—how hard! —Jesus to Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta; February 12, 1918 

But all this is indeed good for those calling the shots for the entire world:

A coronavirus vaccine rooted in a government partnership is fuelling financial rewards for company executives. —a headline in The Washington Post, July 2nd, 2020

It is good for pharmaceutical companies and scientists within the Center for Disease Control (CDC) that stand to collectively make billions of dollars.

The CDC is a subsidiary of the pharmaceutical industry. The agency owns more than 20 vaccine patents and purchases and sells $4.1 billion in vaccines annually. Congressman Dave Weldon has pointed out that the primary metric for success across the CDC is how many vaccines the agency sells and how successfully the agency expands its vaccine program—regardless of any negative effects on human health. Weldon exposed how the Immunization Safety Office, which is supposed to ensure vaccine efficacy and safety, has become subsumed in that metric. The scientists in that part of the agency should no longer be considered part of the public safety sector. Their function is to promote vaccines. As Dr. Thompson has attested, they are routinely ordered to destroy, manipulate and conceal evidence of adverse vaccine reactions in order to protect that ultimate metric. The CDC should not be the agency that we are relying on for oversight of the vaccine program. It’s the wolf guarding the henhouse. —Robert F. Kennedy, EcoWatch, December 15th, 2016

It is good for the United Nations who have been desperately seeking tools to restructure the economy, either through “global warming” or some other crises that would dismantle the free market system as we know it and introduce new mechanisms for the “redistribution of wealth.”

…one has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy.  Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth… —Ottmar Edenhofer of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), dailysignal.com, November 19th, 2011

It is good for those globalists who have been fomenting revolution for decades, indeed, since the French Revolution. 

This is the crisis of my lifetime. Even before the pandemic hit, I realized that we were in a revolutionary moment where what would be impossible or even inconceivable in normal times had become not only possible, but probably absolutely necessary. And then came COVID-19, which has totally disrupted people’s lives and required very different behaviour. It is an unprecedented event that probably has never occurred in this combination… we must find a way to cooperate on fighting climate change and the novel coronavirus. —George Soros, May 13th, 2020; independent.co.uk.

It is good for those world bankers and philanthropists who, having invested in and taken control of not only pharmaceuticals but food corporations, the media, and agricultural patents on genetically modified seeds, are now able to corral nearly the entire world into their systems and ideology.[3]cf. The Pandemic of Control 

At this period… the partisans of evil seems to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself …that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view—namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism. —POPE LEO XIII, Humanum GenusEncyclical on Freemasonry, n.10, Apri 20th, 1884

Hence, we are now on the threshold of an upheaval the likes of which the world has never seen. And here’s why it is inevitable… 



1. God has told us it is inevitable

The Scriptures are clear that there will come a time when a global system (“beast”) of some kind will rise up toward the end of this era and force everyone to “buy and sell” through it. This Scripture is not optional, not a fairytale. It will happen. Remarkably today, we openly hear government officials saying that a “biometric ID” of some sort will likely be required to prove that you are vaccinated or tested, or both, in order to re-enter society. The form of this ID is not yet known, though a nano-tech stamp or “tattoo” is already in the works as well as an injectable DARPA-funded (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) “biometric chip.” Suddenly, we see how the “mark of the beast” is no longer some fantasy but could be presented as a “responsible” demand “for the common good”—and thus, how easily the mark will be “forced” (Rev 13:16) on everyone. 


2. The powerful really are powerful

The last three popes especially have been warning that these anonymous global elites who are financing entire nations, pulling the strings, and dictating your healthcare, threaten the freedom of mankind. 

We think of the great powers of the present day, of the anonymous financial interests which turn men into slaves, which are no longer human things, but are an anonymous power which men serve, by which men are tormented and even slaughtered. They [i.e., anonymous financial interests] are a destructive power, a power that menaces the world. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Reflection after the reading of the office for the Third Hour this morning in the Synod Aula, Vatican City, October 11, 2010

…without the guidance of charity in truth, this global force could cause unprecedented damage and create new divisions within the human family… humanity runs new risks of enslavement and manipulation… —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Caritas in Veritate, n.33, 26


3. Fear works

The past six months have demonstrated that fear works—something authoritarians and dictators learned centuries ago. While there are demonstrations in some countries against the draconian laws being put into place, when it comes down to it, most people will simply surrender. Are you going to go to prison for not wearing a mask, even though several published scientific studies [4]cf. The CDC’s own website cites a study that concludes, “Although mechanistic studies support the potential effect of hand hygiene or face masks, evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.” The World Health Organization’s data concludes that “surgical and N95 (respirator) masks were effective in preventing the spread of influenza” (with appropriate medical protocols). However, in other studies of combined face masks and hand hygiene, “the evidence was insufficient to exclude chance as an explanation for the reduced risk of transmission.” See here. show that they not only fail to stop coronavirus particles (they are too small for K95 masks, much less your designer bandana) but may actually spread the disease? Probably not. Are you going to risk being fined thousands of dollars for not staying at home or social distancing—even though the space of “six feet” apart is a random number? (the World Health Organization recommended three feet!).[5]“Four Months of Unprecedented Government Malfeasance”, ImprimisMay/June 2020, Volume 49, Number 5/6 Probably not. Are you going to let your fridge go empty because you can’t buy groceries without proof of having been vaccinated? Be careful now how you answer (see 1).


4. Our Lady has promised that she will triumph. 

Revelations from all over the world including those in ecclesiastically approved messages have not only prophesied this great upheaval but the triumph to follow. Perhaps it was summarized best by John Paul II:

After purification through trial and suffering, the dawn of a new era is about to break. —POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II, General Audience, September 10, 2003


5. It’s happening fast! 

On June 9th, 2020, I wrote in Exposing This Revolutionary Spirit:

…mark my words—you are going to see your Catholic churches defaced, vandalized, and some burned to the ground not long from now. 

Just weeks later, the first of a cascade of church burnings, statue beheadings, Bible burnings and the like began in North America. What? This isn’t about George Floyd? No, it’s not. It’s about eradicating Christianity and the entire present order. 

Christianity has to be eliminated and give way to a global religion and a new world order.  —Jesus Christ, The Bearer of the Water of Life, n. 4, Pontifical Councils for Culture and Inter-religious Dialogue



The prophetic consensus on my sister website Countdown to the Kingdom is pretty remarkable, as noted above. The counsel from Heaven at this time is essential. Get to the Sacraments as frequently as you can, especially the Eucharist and Confession. Pray the Rosary daily. Consecrate yourself to Our Lady, St. Joseph, and the Sacred Heart. Fast and pray, and pray some more. Do not backslide into worldliness and sin. Be ready to help others and especially to give an answer to them as to the reason for your faith. Defend the truth. Stay with the true magisterium of the Church. Pray for the Pope and the clergy. Do not fall asleep. 

Hm. Sound familiar? Yes, it’s the same program that we’ve heard for 2000 years with the bonus of the Rosary and a few sacramentals and devotions.

Now there have also been more specific warnings that this Fall will see major events; on that, we can only “wait and see”, or I’d rather say, “watch and pray.”

CNN Headline, September 21st, 2020

That said, lockdowns are beginning again and so I personally feel the next “hard labor pain” has already begun (and other major events are looming. See the Timeline). The recommendation by several seers to store up a few months of food and supplies if you can is, at this point, just prudence given what we saw happen from the first lockdowns. Right now, the global supply chain and many businesses standing today will not be standing tomorrow. The entire economy is like a house of cards with a hurricane about to strike. How do you think they will fair? So, clearly, this is the hour to train your trust in Christ. If you have not read this prophecy from the late Fr. Michael Scanlan in 1976, it summarizes what I mean by this:

Son of man, do you see that city going bankrupt? Are you willing to see all your cities going bankrupt? Are you willing to see the bankruptcy of the whole economic system you rely on now so that all money is worthless and cannot support you?

Son of man, do you see the crime and lawlessness in your city streets, and towns, and institutions? Are you willing to see no law, no order, no protection for you except that which I myself will give you?

Son of man, do you see the country which you love and which you are now celebrating—a country’s history that you look back on with nostalgia? Are you willing to see no country—no country to call your own except those I give you as My body? Will you let Me bring you life in My body and only there?

Son of man, do you see those churches which you can go to so easily now? Are you ready to see them with bars across their doors, with doors nailed shut? Are you ready to base your life only on Me and not on any particular structure? Are you ready to depend only on Me and not on all the institutions of schools and parishes that you are working so hard to foster?

Son of man, I call you to be ready for that. That is what I am telling you about. The structures are falling and changing—it is not for you to know the details now—but do not rely on them as you have been. I want you to make a deeper commitment to one another. I want you to trust one another, to build an interdependence that is based on my Spirit. It is an interdependence that is no luxury. It is an absolute necessity for those who will base their lives on me and not the structures from a pagan world. I have spoken and it will take place. My word will go forth to my people. They may hear and they may not—and I will respond accordingly—but this is my word.

Look about you, son of man. When you see it all shut down, when you see everything removed which has been taken for granted, and when you are prepared to live without these things, then you will know what I am making ready. This prophecy was brought into the light by Dr. Ralph Martin after lockdowns began. See Fr. Scanlan – Prophecy of 1976.

In 2006, I gathered with a small group of missionaries in the upper room of a small chapel in the mountains of Western Canada. There, before the Blessed Sacrament, we consecrated ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In the powerful silence of that moment, I received a rare, flowing, and lucid interior “vision” that I want to share here again for your discernment and prayer. It has come to mind frequently these past few months and I feel we are approaching it rapidly. It echoes the prophecy given by Fr. Michael where Jesus asks, “Will you let Me bring you life in My body and only there?”

The following is a vision of coming “parallel communities” that will emerge after a crisis…

I saw that, in the midst of the virtual collapse of society due to cataclysmic events, a “world leader” would present an impeccable solution to the economic chaos. This solution would seemingly cure at the same time economic strains, as well as the deep social need of society, that is, the need for community. [I immediately perceived that technology and the rapid pace of life have created an environment of isolation and loneliness—perfect soil for a new concept of community to emerge.] In essence, I saw what would be “parallel communities” to the Christian communities. The Christian communities would already have been established through “the illumination” or “warning” or perhaps sooner [they would be cemented by the supernatural graces of the Holy Spirit, and protected beneath the mantle of the Blessed Mother.]

The “parallel communities,” on the other hand, would reflect many of the values of the Christian communities—fair sharing of resources, a form of spirituality and prayer, like-mindedness, and social interaction made possible (or forced into being) by the preceding purifications, which would compel people to draw together. The difference would be this: the parallel communities would be based on a new religious idealism, built on the footings of moral relativism and structured by New Age and Gnostic philosophies. AND, these communities would also have food and the means for comfortable survival.

The temptation for Christians to cross-over will be so great that we will see families split, fathers turned against sons, daughters against mothers, families against families (cf. Mark 13:12). Many will be deceived because the new communities will contain many of the ideals of Christian community (cf. Acts 2:44-45), and yet, they will be empty, godless structures, shining in a false light, held together by fear more than by love, and fortified with easy access to the necessities of life. People will be seduced by the ideal—but swallowed by the falsehood. [Such wlll be the tactic of Satan, to mirror true Christian communities, and in this sense, create an anti-church].

As hunger and incrimination escalate, people will face a choice: they can continue to live in insecurity (humanly speaking) trusting in the  Lord alone, or they can choose to eat well in a welcoming and seemingly secure community. [Perhaps a certain “mark” will be required to belong to these communities—an obvious but plausible speculation (cf. Rev 13:16-17)].

Those who refuse these parallel communities will be deemed not only outcasts, but obstacles to what many will be deceived into believing is the “enlightenment” of human existence—the solution to a humanity in crisis and gone astray. [And here again, terrorism is another key element of the enemy’s present plan. These new communities will appease the terrorists through this new world religion thereby bringing about a false “peace and security”, and hence, Christian’s will become the “new terrorists” because they oppose the “peace” established by the world leader.]

Even though people will have by now heard the revelation in Scripture regarding the dangers of a coming world religion (cf. Rev 13:13-15), the deception will be so convincing that many will believe Catholicism to be that “evil” world religion instead. Putting to death Christians will become a justifiable “act of self-defence” in the name of “peace and security”.

Confusion will be present; all will be tested; but the faithful remnant will prevail.

Consider these saintly words:

The revolt [revolution] and separation must come…the Sacrifice shall cease and…the Son of Man shall hardly find faith on earth… All these passages are understood of the affliction which Antichrist shall cause in the Church… But the Church… shall not fail, and shall be fed and preserved amidst the deserts and solitudes to which She shall retire, as the Scripture says, (Apoc. Ch. 12). —St. Francis de Sales, The Mission of the Church, ch. X, n.5

Finally, I have almost lost sleep these days over wanting you to be sure that you have read Our Lady: Prepare – Part III. These are the prophetic moments in my life that I truly believe are on the verge of fulfillment. Please read it. Don’t count the words or think how long it will take you (while we never give thought to scrolling mindlessly on Facebook). I send these things with love and a strong conviction, based on fifteen years of trying to be a faithful watchman, that these events are now imminent. I am already a fool for Christ. If I’m wrong, then I’ll be a fool for Christ with egg on my face. I can live with that. 

More to say in coming days… 


“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times.
But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is
what to do with the time that is given us.”

—J.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings
