The Popes have been warning us….. January 14, 2013

You can go back well over a century, and read warnings like the one below from Pope Pius XII.  Mary has been warning us.  In fact, way back in the early 1600s, over 400 years ago, Our Lady began warning us about the trials that would afflict the Church in the future, of apostasy within, of apostate bishops and clergy who committed the most wanton acts while leading their sheep very, very astray.  There have been many more such prophecies in the intervening time.  Pope Leo XIII prophesied on this subject, and Pope St. Pius X almost obsessed about it.  He, especially, saw great foreboding in the future for the Church, and did all in his power to stop it that dark future from coming.  There have been more, including very recent Popes.  Holy men and women have connections to the Holy Ghost many simply don’t understand, and which are hard to explain.  It could just be negativism, but it’s not lack of faith.  Not in these personages:

“I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucy of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in her liturgy, her theology and her soul….

“I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject her ornaments and make her feel remorse for her historical past.

“A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them, like Mary Magdalene weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, ‘Where have they taken Him?‘”

(1931 declaration by E. Cardinal Pacelli, quoted in the book, Pie XII devant l’histoire[Paris: Editions Robert Laffont, 1972], pp. 52-53, by Msgr. Georges Roche).

And yet, today Pope Pius XII is most frequently ignored and sometimes reviled. He was “Hitler’s Pope,” a wicked calumny with absolutely no basis in fact.  Where he is treated of with some respect, he is most often seen as a figure radically out of step with the times, of the last in an exhausted line of Popes who sought to keep the Church closed off from the world, refusing to accept modernist scholarship on the same basis as revealed Truth. Certainly, we moderns know that prophesy is just fantasy, the product of warped and fanatical psyches. Any accuracy is sheer luck.  Not even Christ prophesied, He didn’t say who was striking him in Annas’ house and He certainly didn’t predict the fall of Jerusalem decades in advance – the Gospels were all written after that event in 70 CE.

Yeah, right. You take the modernism, I’ll stick with the Popes, thank you.


He’s coming.

“Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and His Christ…These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has been set up as the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be.” All bishops should read the long version every day.
