Invoking the Light of Christ

Painting by my daughter, Tianna Williams

 

IN my last writing, Our Gethsemane, I spoke about how the light of Christ is going to remain blazing in the hearts of the faithful in these coming times of tribulation as it is extinguished in the world. One way to keep that light aflame is Spiritual Communion. As nearly all of Christendom approaches the “eclipse” of public Masses for a time, many are just learning about an ancient practice of “Spiritual Communion.” It is a prayer one can say, like the one my daughter Tianna added to her painting above, to ask God for the graces one would otherwise receive if partaking of the Holy Eucharist. Tianna has provided this artwork and prayer on her website for you to download and print out at no cost. Go to: ti-spark.caContinue reading

Our Gethsemane

 

LIKE a thief in the night, the world as we know it has changed in the blink of an eye. It will never be the same again, for what is unfolding now are the hard labour pains before the birth—what St. Pius X called a “restoration of all things in Christ.”[1]cf. The Popes and the New World Order – Part II It is the final battle of this era between two kingdoms: the palisade of Satan versus the City of God. It is, as the Church teaches, the beginning of her own Passion.Continue reading

The Vigil of Sorrows

Masses are being canceled throughout the world… (Photo by Sergio Ibannez)

 

IT is with mixed horror and grief, sadness and disbelief that many of us read of the cessation of Catholic Masses around the world. One man said he is no longer permitted to bring Communion to those in nursing homes. Another diocese is refusing to hear confessions. The Easter Triduum, the solemn reflection on the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus, is being canceled in many places. Yes, yes, there are the rational arguments: “We have an obligation to care for the very young, the aged, and those with compromised immune systems. And the best way we can care for them is minimizing large group gatherings for the time being…” Never mind that this has always been the case with seasonal flu (and we’ve never canceled Masses for that).Continue reading

The Point of No Return

Many Catholic churches around the world are empty,
and the faithful temporarily barred from the Sacraments

 

I have told you this so that when their hour comes
you may remember that I told you.
(John 16:4)

 

AFTER landing safely in Canada from Trinidad, I received a text from American seer, Jennifer, whose messages given between 2004 and 2012 are now unfolding in real time.[1]Jennifer is a young American mother and housewife (her last name is withheld at her spiritual director’s request in order to respect the privacy of her husband and family.) Her messages allegedly come directly from Jesus, who began to speak to her audibly one day after she received the Holy Eucharist at Mass. The messages read almost as a continuation of the message of Divine Mercy, however with a marked emphasis on the “door of justice” as opposed to the “door of mercy”—a sign, perhaps, of the imminence of judgment. One day, the Lord instructed her to present her messages to the Holy Father, John Paul II. Fr. Seraphim Michaelenko, vice-postulator of St. Faustina’s canonization, translated her messages into Polish. She booked a ticket to Rome and, against all odds, found herself and her companions in the inner corridors of the Vatican. She met with Monsignor Pawel Ptasznik, a close friend and collaborator of the Pope and the Polish Secretariat of State for the Vatican. The messages were passed to Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, John Paul II’s personal secretary. In a follow-up meeting, Msgr. Pawel said she was to “Spread the messages to the world any way you can.” And so, we consider them here. Her text said,Continue reading

11:11

 

This writing from nine years ago came to mind a couple of days ago. I wasn’t going to republish it until I received a wild confirmation this morning (read to the end!) The following was first published on January 11th, 2011 at 13:33…

 

FOR some time now, I have spoken with the occasional reader who is befuddled as to why they are suddenly seeing the number 11:11 or 1:11, or 3:33, 4:44, etc. Whether glancing at a clock, a cellphone, television, page number, etc. they are suddenly seeing this number “everywhere.” For instance, they won’t look at the clock all day, but suddenly feel the urge to look up, and there it is again.

China and the Storm

 

If the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet,
so that the people are not warned,
and the sword comes, and takes any one of them;
that man is taken away in his iniquity,
but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
(Ezekiel 33:6)

 

AT a conference I spoke at recently, someone said to me, “I didn’t know you were so funny. I thought you would be kind of a somber and serious person.” I share this little anecdote with you because I think it might be helpful to some readers to know that I am not some dark figure crouched over a computer screen, looking for the worst in humanity as I weave together conspiracies of dread and doom. I’m a father of eight children and a grandfather of three (with one on the way). I think about fishing and football, camping and giving concerts. Our home is a temple of laughter. We love to suck the marrow of life from the present moment.Continue reading

The Spirit of Judgment

 

ALMOST six years ago, I wrote about a spirit of fear that would begin to assail the world; a fear that would begin to grip nations, families, and marriages, children and adults alike. One of my readers, a very smart and devout woman, has a daughter who for many years has been given a window into the spiritual realm. In 2013, she had a prophetic dream:Continue reading
