Soon No More Eucharist!
Things are beginning to accelerate and to precipitate rather quickly now! As I wrote in my article, “Satan Apes Christ” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/09/satan-apes-christ.html): “There are various indications that the peace promised by Our Lady of Fatima will be fulfilled on the CENTENARY OF THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE GREAT MIRACLE OF THE SUN, October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal, which will be October 13, 2017!” Three weeks before this date, on September 23, 2017, we will see “the woman clothed with the sun” (Rev 12:1-2) in the heavens (“Signs of God vs. Signs of Satan”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/12/signs-god-vs-satan.html). “The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection” (CCC 677). Dear friends, we are Catholic and as the catechism tells us, we as members of Christ’s Body, the Church, must now pass through the crucifixion; we do not believe in the rapture as do many of our protestants brothers. We must suffer with our Lord so as to rise with our Lord (see also: “Catholic Prophecy Today”; http://markbeast.blogspot.com)!
Our Lady revealed to Don Stefano Gobbi: “At the most violent hour of the storm, you will see my great light grow brighter and more apparent: the Woman Clothed with the Sun, with the moon at her feet and about her head a crown of twelve stars” (January 1, 1980) (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/). I believe that this indicates that with the “Woman clothed with the sun” (Rev 12:1) announced by the stars and the planets of the universe on September 23, 2017, to do battle with “the great red dragon” (Rev 12:3), “the most violent hour of the storm”, the reign of Satan, will be quickly destroyed and Satan will be cast into hell for 1000 years (Rev 20:1-3, 7) before the centenary of Fatima, October 13, 2017.
This means that before October 13, 2017 we will most likely see the rest of chapter 24 of Matthew, chapter 13 of the Book of Revelations, etc.
Writing about the second coming of Jesus Christ in the second letter to the Thessalonians, St. Paul tells us: “Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the REBELLION (APOSTASY) COMES FIRST, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God” (2Thess 2:3-4). “And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by his appearing and his coming” (2Thess 2:6-8).
Above all what is “RESTRAINING” the “man of lawlessness” is the presence of Jesus Christ as the Truth (Jn 14:6) and His real presence in the Most Holy Eucharist of the Holy Mass; “the continual burnt offering” (Dan 8:11; 12:11), will be taken away, and the “sacrifice and offering” will cease (Dan 9:27). The Second Vatican Council tells us that only the Catholic Church has the fullness of the means of sanctification, the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, and the fullness of the truth with the guidance of the Magisterium of the Church (Lumen Gentium 8). The Truth comes from God, and not from the Church, and thus no priest, bishop or pope can change the Truth of Divine Revelation which is well summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC). Simply put, this is precisely what several cardinals are saying in the “Dubia” (November 2016) and in their book “Remaining in the Truth of Christ: Marriage and Communion in the Catholic Church” (October 2014). In a very sly and hidden way, Bergoglio is leading the Church very quickly away from the truth of God, which truly sets us free (Jn 8:32), into what Pope Benedict calls “the dictatorship of relativism” (“Who Decides The Truth?”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2014/06/who-decides-truth.html).
It is not a valid excuse before God to say I obeyed my superiors when the superiors did not obey God’s laws! “So everyone who lives evilly in the sight of those over whom he is set, as far as in him lies is killing even the strong. The one who imitates him dies; the one who does not imitate him goes on living. Yet as far as he is concerned he is killing both. ‘You slaughter the fatlings’, the Lord says, ‘but you do not feed the sheep’ (Ez 34:3). (Breviary; Sermon of St. Augustine on the Shepherds; OT 24, Thursday). See also CCC 2284 and Mk 9:42-49.
“De Matteo: When public correction of a pope is urgent and necessary” (February 22, 2017; https://catholiccitizens.org/views/70002/de-matteo-public-correction-pope-urgent-necessary/).
Saint Paul prophesied, in particular for our times, about the importance of seeking and living the Truth:
“The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the TRUTH and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the TRUTH but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God chose you from the beginning to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the TRUTH. To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us (CCC), either by word of mouth (Divine Tradition) or by letter (Sacred Scripture). Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word” (2Thess 2:9-17).
Regarding the book of Daniel that “the continual burnt offering” (Dan 8:11; 12:11), WILL BE TAKEN AWAY, and the “sacrifice and offering” will cease (9:27):
“Pope Orders Surprise Review of New Mass Translation” (January 28, 2017; http://www.churchmilitant.com/news/article/pope-orders-surprise-review-of-new-mass-translation).
“Pope Francis has ordered a review of “Liturgiam Authenticam,” the controversial decree behind the most recent translations of liturgical texts from Latin into English and other languages” (January 27, 2017; http://www.lastampa.it/2017/01/27/vaticaninsider/eng/the-vatican/pope-francis-has-ordered-a-review-of-the-new-mass-translation-5jY2I4Ms9U8q6QY0LY3atK/pagina.html).
“ECUMENICAL MASS, WORK IN PROGRESS - THE CONSECRATION PUZZLES THE REFORMED - THE PLOY OF SILENCE. A mixed commission of Catholics, Lutherans and Anglicans secretly together are at work, to create a form of a mass in which the faithful of all three Christian confessions can participate. Nothing is heard about the Orthodox. It does not seem that there is some written documents; we are at the level of verbal notes…”
(In Italian: “Messa Ecumenica, Lavori In Corso - La Consacrazione Imbarazza I Riformati - L’escamotage Del Silenzio. Una commissione mista di cattolici, luterani e anglicani legata al segreto sarebbe al lavoro, per mettere a punto una forma di messa a cui possano partecipare i fedeli di tutte e tre le confessioni cristiane. Non si parla di ortodossi. Non sembra che ci sia un qualche documento scritto; saremmo a livello di appunti verbali …” (1 marzo 2017; http://www.marcotosatti.com/2017/03/01/messa-ecumenica-lavori-in-corso-la-consacrazione-imbarazza-i-riformati-lescamotage-del-silenzio/).
A Mass of the Roman Rite is invalid: 1) WHEN the celebrant of the Mass is not a validly ordained priest, 2) WHEN the priest does not have the proper intention, 3) WHEN wheat bread or grape wine is not used, 4) or WHEN the words “This is my Body” or “This is … my Blood” are not said by the Priest during the consecration of the Mass (See Appendix below).
In the last four years, Bergoglio has been seeking to draw as many non Catholics to Rome without having to worry about doctrinal differences. This is equivalent to putting aside the uncomfortable Truth Who is Jesus Christ crucified! There is being formed a union of churches without the uncomfortable Truth; this union of churches, a One World Religion, is being emptied of the fundamental human and Christian values which are the pillars of personal integrity, of society and of the entire world! A good friend of Bergoglio, Anglican Bishop Tony Palmer, traveling around the world, proclaims to many protestant leaders around the world, “the protest is over; come to Rome”.

Pope Francis, Christian Unity,Tony Palmer, Kenneth Copeland PROPHECY FULFILLED (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtXiOzp43Yw)
The false prophet, the false pope, will seek to form a One World Religion, by way of false ecumenism, which will result in reductionism to the lowest common denominator. If one only gives half of the truth, or 90% of the truth, it ends up being a falsehood, something worse than a lie, a great deception disguised as an “angel of light” (2Cor 11:14), like a drop of poison in a glass of wine! In this subtle and clever way, dressed up by seemly good motives, we will be stripped of our spiritual defenses and weapons against the “powers of evil” (CCC 409). The consequences will be disastrous! Thus the Catholics, who have access to the fullness of the Truth and to the fullness of the “means of sanctification” (Lumen Gentium 8), will have to forfeit these most precious gifts, in the name of seemly good motives of (false) “love” and (false) “mercy” and (false) “ecumenism”!?! In most seminaries today, there is no longer taught basic logic nor the need, as St. Thomas Aquinas tells us to: “Rarely affirm, seldom deny, ALWAYS DISTINGUISH.” Thus the great majority of Catholics today do not distinguish between right and wrong according to Divine Revelation well summarized in the CCC, and no longer want to know the hidden consequences of sin for themselves and for others, now and after death. “Ignorance is bliss!”; and thus we automatically fall into the hidden traps of Satan. It is precisely now, with more confusion than ever, that the Church and the world need this guidance of the fullness of the Truth and the fullness of the means of grace to live the Truth of God that sets us truly free (Jn 8:32). It is precisely now, when Satan has succeeded in spreading more than ever before his beautiful lies as if they were the truth, that we need the infallible guidance of the Magisterium of the Church! Today Catholic lay people, priests and bishops are encouraged to please everyone and to not talk about God’s laws and sin and the consequences of sin, which leads to compromise after compromise, to the point of loosing just about all the true values of Jesus Christ as well as the authentic sources of grace through Jesus Christ. The founder of Christendom College (USA), Dr. Warren Carroll, wrote that ecumenism is important but properly understood is “not an ecumenism in which you would abandon convictions in truth which would be superficial and meaningless agreements, but developing an ecumenism built solidly on real conviction and truth.” “The Antichrist will conquer many people by saying: “You can do all that you like... it is enough to love each other...”.” - Saint Hildegard of Bingen, doctor of the Church (1098-1179) (http://profezie3m.altervista.org/ptm_profx_santaildegarda.htm). “Forbidden To Speak About Sin” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/09/forbidden-to-speak-about-sin.html).
Archbishop Fulton Sheen and Cardinal Biffi gave us an idea of what the New World Religion would be like. Visit: “Russia Will Punish the World - 3rd Secret of Fatima Revealed” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/10/russia-will-punish-world.html).
Even though the great majority of Catholic lay people, and even the majority of the priests and bishops, no longer truly believe in the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, the Eucharist is still present in the celebrations of the Holy Mass throughout the world and in the tabernacles of the churches. If a priest celebrates the Holy Mass in the state of mortal sin, the Mass is valid and the Eucharist is confected even though the priest commits a sacrilege by celebrating the Mass in the state of mortal sin; the validity of the Mass does not depend on the holiness of the priest (“ex opera operato”). We of little faith, do not realize the great power of the presence of the Holy Eucharist in restraining the activity of Satan and his very numerous followers. Padre Pio told us: "It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the Sacrifice of the HOLY MASS." The Church tells us that the Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life”.” (Vat. II: LG 11; CCC 1324). When an essential element of the Holy Mass will be changed to render the Mass invalid, to take away the Eucharist, those who have already lost the faith in the Eucharist will not realize what has been lost.
Thus with the seemingly good motive of unity among all Christians, we will soon have a new liturgy, a new mass, but it will be invalid; there will not be the real presence of the Eucharist and thus this new mass will be a terrible sacrilege! Of the four elements required for a valid Mass, the most likely deception to render the Mass invalid would be to change the words of consecration, to please many non Catholic denominations, leaving out the essential words: “This is my Body” or “This is … my Blood”.
Very few people understand what the Church and Padre Pio were trying to say and thus many people will be surprised at the great power of Satan after the Eucharist is taken away in the public churches. As St. Paul told us:
“And you know what is RESTRAINING him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now RESTRAINS it will do so until he is OUT OF THE WAY. And then the lawless one will be revealed, and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by his appearing and his coming.” (2Thess 2:6-8).
One of the more recent preparations for the promotion and the acceptance of this sacrilegious mass is that Cardinal Kasper and many others are now promoting:
“Communion For All, Catholics and Protestants. Words of Kasper, Or Rather of the Pope” (http://magister.blogautore.espresso.repubblica.it/2017/02/16/communion-for-all-catholics-and-protestants-words-of-kasper-or-rather-of-the-pope/).
“Communion For All, Even For Protestants” (http://chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it/articolo/1351332?eng=y).
2,570 – Message from Our Lady Queen of Peace (Anguera, Brazil), transmitted in 9/3/2005: “Dear children, I love you and I want you to be faithful to My Jesus. Take care of your spiritual life and don´t let material things make you stray from the way of salvation. WK: because of this many will die. Those chosen to defend the truth will deny it. I suffer because of what awaits you. ...” (http://www.apelosurgentes.com.br/en-us/mensagens/ano/2005/).
In the Italian version of this message, it is written clearly the WK stands for “Walter Kasper” (“Walter Kasper: per causa sua molti moriranno” (“Walter Kasper: due to him many will die”); http://www.madonnadianguera.it/messaggi/2005/09/).
“Oh, WHAT WEIGHT HOLY MASS HAS TO COMPENSATE FOR, AND TO DESTROY, THE EVIL which is daily brought about by so many sins and by such a widespread rejection of God” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi, November 28, 1979).
To understand better about the greatness of the Holy Mass and the Eucharist, visit also: “The History of Communion in the Hand” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/12/history-communion-in-hand.html).
This final step of eliminating the Eucharist has been carefully planned and prepared in THE PROGRESSIVE PROTESTANTIZATION of the Holy Mass. Many have already left the Body of Christ, the Church, in this period of the passion of the Body of Christ. Others who have not obeyed the liturgical books of the Church, such as those in the Neocatecumenal Way, will very easily accept an invalid Mass. Others who have sacrificed the truth on the altar of unity, such as many in the Focolare Movement and in the whole Church, will very easily put aside the doctrine regarding the validity of the Mass by putting the first priority on unity and on the community, not on the truth, and thus, it is false love and there will no longer be God, “Jesus in their midst”, Jesus the Truth (Jn 14:6), and Jesus in the Most Holy Eucharist! Many who are attached to their importance before people in the Church will obey the mandate of the sacrilegious mass in order to not lose their glory “before men” (Lk 12:8-9; 16:15; 6:26; Mt 6:1-6; 16-18; Jn 5:44; Gal 1:10). If the structure of the Church, in a visible sense, seems to fall, those with important positions in the structure will lose their titles and importance “BEFORE MEN”, thus the great majority (“the hirelings” – Jn 10:12) will obey a mandate contrary to the truth to be “politically correct”. Jesus lost his group of disciples and apostles by dying a humiliating and atrocious death on the cross. How many priests and bishops are willing to do the same for the flock of souls, to put God first before men, as did the Good Shepherd (Jn 10:11)? The Truth comes from Jesus (Jn 14:6), not from the spouse of Jesus, the Church!
“Kiko does not want you to become saints. … At the annual catechesis at the beginning of the year (2016) I remember well how the catechist downplayed this (personal sanctity) asserting “you think about becoming a saint? Look here, it is not a question of your personal sanctification. It is the community that becomes holy, it is not a discussion about you becoming a saint.” … That which the Neocatecumenal Way proposes is a moral lowering instead of a spiritual uplifting. …” (February 23, 2017; in Italian: https://neocatecumenali.blogspot.it/2017/02/kiko-non-vuole-che-diventiate-santi.html?m=1).
Chiara Lubich said several times that the most important thing that she could offer to others and to the whole Focolare Movement is her sanctity. Unfortunately at least the majority of the leaders of the movement have done what one reads in the book: “In the Name of Purpose - Sacrificing Truth on the Altar of Unity” (Jeremiah 6:16), by Tamara Hartzell (http://inthenameofpurpose.org/inthename.pdf). Chiara Lubich prayed more than an hour everyday early in the morning before the Blessed Sacrament, but I never heard any focolarini speak about this and promote this practice. How can I achieve sanctity as a Catholic without a deep relationship with Christ bodily present in the Eucharist? Without sanctity my “love” ends up being false because it is human love and not divine love!
We are more and more led to leave the cult of God of the saints and to embrace the cult of man of Satan!
This new sacrilegious mass will be presented in a smooth convincing way with many beautiful secondary DISTRACTIONS and disguised with subtle camouflages so as to take our attention away from the fact that one of the necessary elements to have a valid Mass has been changed or eliminated. “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves” (Mt 10:16). It is enough to take away the little distributor of a nice car and the car will not go anywhere.
Related to sacrificing the truth on the altar of unity is what the Freemasons have promoted in a hidden way to be “politically correct”, irregardless if it is good for people or for the society. It is most interesting how often we find this “LOVE” used as a powerful strategy in the 33 directives of the Grand Master of the Masons to the Catholic Bishops to destroy the Catholic Church! The word “love” APPEARS A WHOPPING 11 TIMES in these 33 directives(http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/masonic-plan.html)! “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14)!
Thus the vast majority of Catholics WILL NOT EVEN CARE if the Mass is valid or not, since they did not care about the teachings of the Church well summarized in the CCC. Today the great majority of Catholics see religion as something that is meant to serve “ME”, not to help me to discover the will of God and to help me to live the will of God. Without the laws of God, without the rules of religion, without the CCC, we go quickly to the “dictatorship of relativism”, especially after the priests and bishops will be forced to celebrate an invalid sacrilegious mass! The few children trustful in God the Father believe that God gave us the Ten Commandments and His Church for our good, not for our evil or to take away our true freedom.
“So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth” (Rev 3:16).
God, Who is love, respects our free will totally and thus will not force anyone to spend eternity with God in heaven. If we do not want to spend time with God in prayer and if we do not want to seek the Truth from God during this short life, it will be us, after our death, who will not want to spend eternity with God Who is the Truth. This is the second death, eternal! “See, I have set before you this day life and good, death and evil. … Therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice, and cleaving to him…” (Dt 30:15-20)!
The Servant of God, Archbishop Fulton Sheen, said that the only thing that he discovered that works to overcome sloth, the lack of zeal for God and holiness, the noon day devil as the Fathers of the Church called it, is a daily holy hour before the Most Blessed Sacrament, which he called “the hour of power”! We are dust; God in the Eucharist is infinite. Fulton Sheen said that if we want to receive the divine sparks of love and zeal of the life of God, we must spend time before the Divine Fire in the Eucharist. Just as it takes time to get a tan on the beach, so too it takes time to get a divine tan before the Divine Sun, the Son of God in the Eucharist!
“If the angels were capable of envy, they would envy us for two things: one is the receiving of Holy Communion, and the other is suffering” (Diary of St. Faustina, no. 1804)!
I asked my protestant friends (about 50) of 1970-1974 at UCLA by email on December 23, 2016 (“Christmas Greetings 2016 BCF”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/12/christmas-greetings-2016-bcf.html):
“Forgive me if I say this, but I do not understand how a sincere Christian cannot believe in the real substantial presence of Jesus in the Eucharist after reading chapter six of the Gospel of John! … There are thousands of independent protestant groups who believe in the same God, the same Jesus Christ, and more or less with the same Bible, but interpret a great number of Scripture passages in contradictory ways. Did Jesus not know this would happen? What was the solution that Jesus left us for this problem especially since if one does not follow the truth from God there is a great risk of not making it to heaven. Only the truth of God “will set us free” (Jn 8:32)! … If a Christian who has been given the faith that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist, and does not spend time with Him every day in the Eucharist, the true relationship with Jesus will diminish and end even though we say we are Christians. This is what has happened to the great majority of Catholics and even most priests today. I said to many priests in my diocese to do as I have done for the last 16 years, to spend at least an hour every day before the Blessed Sacrament in church. They all said to me that they do not have time. I replied to them that if I do not spend this holy hour every day with Jesus, I end up giving to others a poor priest, Father Joe, instead of giving them Jesus; the cult of man instead of the cult of God. They agreed but they continued in their activism, believing that they are the saviors of their parishes! The truth of the Eucharist does not change even if “many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him” (Jn 6:66). Jesus never compromised with the Truth even if it meant losing his apostles (Jn 6:67). I find it very interesting that in the whole Bible, there is only one verse with the number 666; it is this verse when the disciples did not believe in the Eucharist, in the words of Jesus, but in the way they wanted to believe according to their own interpretation, their own subjectivism, their own relativism, and went away - John 6:66! … The more one loves, the more one suffers when the one loved does not reciprocate this love. Jesus loves each one of us more than we can possibly imagine.”

The Apparitions of Garabandal
The salient feature of the apparitions of Garabandal, Spain (1961-1965) is that three major events were announced: the Great Warning, the Great Miracle and the Great Punishment. The first two events will take place within 12 months of each other, while the Great Punishment will be conditional on the response that humanity will give to the first two events.
One of the visionaries, CONCHITA, tells us:
"The WARNING will be visible throughout the world, for everyone, wherever they are. It will be like a revelation of our sins; it will be seen and experienced by believers and non-believers, by people of every religion. It will be like a purification before the miracle" (14 September 1965).
"The most important thing is that the whole world, everyone, will receive a sign, a grace, or a punishment, we could call it an ADMONITION. At that moment everyone will feel alone, wherever they are, alone with their conscience, only before God. They will see their sins and the effects of their sins, and everyone will experience it in the same moment. One will not feel any physical pain, except perhaps an emotional shock, such as a heart attack. [...] This phenomenon will not cause physical damage, but will fill us with horror, because in a moment we will see our souls and the evils of which we are responsible. It will be as if we were in agony, but we will not die because of this, except in some cases, perhaps of fear and shock. Even if it might last for a moment, it will be very terrible. No one will doubt that it all comes from God and that it is not of human origin. I have a tremendous fear of that day. The Virgin told us that the warning and the miracle will be the last warnings or public manifestations that God will give us. That's why I believe that, after them, we will be close to the end of the times (the end of the present times, the end of our period of time)" (October 1973).
Another seer, MARI LOLI, says: "The Warning and The Miracle will be within a period of 12 months ... Like everyone else, I have to reproach myself for my sins and as the Warning will show me my sins, I'm afraid. All people will experience it wherever they are, whatever their condition or knowledge of God. It will be an interior personal experience. It will seem as if the world stops; however, no one will be conscience of this, because everybody will be absorbed in their own experience. It will be an inner feeling of grief and sorrow for having offended God. God will help us to clearly see the injuries that we have done and the evil deeds committed. It will help us to feel this inner pain because when we do something wrong, we are content to ask forgiveness from the Lord only with our mouth; but the admonition will help us to feel a deep pain even in our body" (July 1965 and September 1978). "The Warning is close, but not too close, and so it is likely that the situation of mankind will worsen. At that time it will be very difficult for priests to celebrate the Holy Mass; it will seem as if the Church no longer exists. When the warning will come, everything, everywhere will stop for a moment, and people will think only about entering within themselves and to examine themselves inwardly" (October 1982).
One finds in the Diary of Saint Faustina, no. 83:
“Write this: before I come as the just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort: All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Savior were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day.”
The second message at Garabandal: June 18, 1965:
"MANY CARDINAL, MANY BISHOPS AND MANY PRIESTS ARE ON THE ROAD TO PERDITION AND WITH THEM THEY ARE BRINGING MANY SOULS”! The Eucharist is given less and less importance. You must try with your efforts to avoid the wrath of God that weighs on you. If you ask Him for forgiveness with a contrite spirit, He will forgive you. I, your Mother, through the mediation of St. Michael the Archangel, want to urge you to conversion. These are the last warnings. I love you very much and I do not want your condemnation. Pray sincerely, and we will hear you. You have to make more sacrifices. Meditate on the passion of Jesus."
The seers revealed that the GREAT MIRACLE will happen within 12 months after the Warning, and will be an event that will happen in the area of the apparitions at Garabandal and will leave a permanent and indestructible sign which will be possible to film or televise, but not touch, and will remain forever. All those who will be present at the time of the Miracle will be healed of whatever sickness, regardless of their religious creed. The Miracle will be evidently not a thing of this world but from God, and will last about 15 minutes.
The Miracle- sign will take place on or between the eighth and sixteenth of March, April or May (not February or June) at the pines of Garabandal on a Thursday, an important day for the Church, at 8:30 PM and will fall on a feast day of a young martyr for the Eucharist with a name not well known in Spain. After some research it has been established that the martyr for the Eucharist is St. Hermenegild, who died because he refused to receive Holy Communion from an Arian bishop who was sent by St. Hermenegild’s father, King Leovigild of Visigothic Spain. Moreover St. Hermenegild is also the Patron of Spain. But why a martyr of the Eucharist? Because the Miracle is permeated with the Pasqual mystery. The cited months are in fact when there is celebrated Easter and the Thursday in question are celebrated, with the time of 8:30 PM, which is a clear reference to the Thursday of the Last Supper, Holy Thursday. The feast of St. Hermenegild is celebrated on the day he was martyred (died 586) April 13, which this year 2017, is Holy Thursday.
What is so special about April 13 in the year 2017? First, April 13 is Holy Thursday in 2017, which thus commemorates the very institution of the Eucharist by Jesus at the Last Supper. That is an ‘event’ of great importance, as the martyr of the Eucharist died on the very day that the Eucharist was instituted, which would certainly be a rare occurrence. Second, the priesthood was also instituted on that day, with the Apostles being bishops, therefore a heretic bishop, another Judas (of Iscariot), contributing to the martyrdom fits that symbolism well, with Bergoglio playing Judas all too well today. Lastly, the martyr died during the paschal celebration and Holy Thursday is part of the tridium which leads to Easter, which is another fitting linkage.
The date, April 13, 2017, is also remarkable in that it is exactly 100 years since the Fatima visions in 1917. Also interesting about 2017 is that both the Orthodox and Catholics celebrate Easter on the same day, April 16, which is not all that common given each uses a different calculation for setting the date of Easter. It is one of the few times when Maundy Thursday, the great Feast of the Institution of the Blessed Sacrament, coincides exactly in both the Eastern and the Western churches. It will also coincide with the Jewish Feast of the Passover. April 16 also happens to be Pope Benedict XVI’s birthday, when he will turn 90. Note that Pope Benedict XVI might be the martyred ‘bishop in white’ in the vision of the third secret of Fatima. The combination of all of these events together is certainly rare.
We shall know if this is correct because Conchita will confirm the date 8 days before the Miracle and it will be preceded by the Warning
Thereafter, once the Miracle has occurred and been seen, if men do not heed these great events and return to God, then we can expect a fearsome Chastisement, something again, which St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina believed in and warned about.
As a side note of importance, the Warning can occur anytime from now up until the day before the Miracle-Sign.
“Today I heard the words: In the Old Covenant I sent prophets wielding thunderbolts to My people. Today I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish aching mankind, but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My Merciful Heart. I USE PUNISHMENT WHEN THEY THEMSELVES FORCE ME TO DO SO; My hand is reluctant to take hold of the sword of justice. Before the Day of Justice I am sending the Day of Mercy. I replied, "O my Jesus, speak to souls Yourself, because my words are insignificant." (Diary of Saint Faustina, no. 1588).
“Jesus complained to me of how painful to Him is the unfaithfulness of chosen souls: “My heart is even more wounded by their distrust after a fall. It would be less painful if they had not experienced the goodness of My heart.” I saw the anger of God hanging heavy over Poland. And now I see that if God were to visit our country with the greatest chastisements, that would still be great mercy because, for such grave transgressions, He could punish us with eternal annihilation. I was paralyzed with fear when the Lord lifted the veil a little for me. Now I see clearly that chosen souls keep the world in existence to fulfill the measure [of justice]” (Diary of Saint Faustina, no. 1532-1533).
The important point which ought not to require to be made but which plainly does need to be made, is that now is the time of grace in which we must seize every opportunity for penance, sacrifice, fasting and reparation, lead good lives, pray the Rosary daily, wear the Brown Scapular of our Lady of Mount Carmel, make frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament and above all to go to confession regularly. We should also attend Holy Mass as often as we can, receive Holy Communion and, if possible, partake of the daily prayer of the Church (e.g. Lauds, Vespers &c). It is better to prepare now than to wait for the great warning, otherwise we might die of fright seeing our whole lives put before us in the light of the truth of God in one instant!
St. Hermenegild is particularly fitting as he refused sacrilegious Communion from a heretic bishop, quite appropriate in today’s environment as poisoned by Amoris Laetitia, where sacrilegious Communion (those in ‘irregular unions’) is promoted by a heretic bishop (wearing a white stole), Bergoglio. Amoris Laetitia has caused great division in the Church. In fact, given the Arian heresy denied that Jesus was Divine, so too will Bergoglio deny Jesus’ Divinity as part of his establishing the One-World Religion which will ultimately worship the Antichrist. Bergoglio will have to do so to get Protestants, Muslims and pagans, such as Buddhists and Hindus, to agree and join this man-made religion, inspired by Satan.
Cardinal Burke cites a saint that condemned heretical bishops (February 9, 2015 at Kansas City; https://www.ncronline.org/news/people/cardinal-burke-extols-saint-who-condemned-heretic-bishop):
"When the shepherd becomes a wolf, the first duty of the flock is to defend itself," Burke said, quoting Gueranger. "Treachery like that of Nestorius is rare in the church, but it may happen that some pastors keep silence for one reason or another in circumstances when religion itself is at stake."
I do not think it was by chance that Our Lady gave to Don Stefano Gobbi the following message about the Eucharist precisely at Garabandal, Spain on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, June 14, 1979:
“Beloved sons, in these present times the darkness has alas obscured even the tabernacle; around it there is so much emptiness, so much indifference, so much negligence. Each day, doubts, denials and sacrileges increase. The Eucharistic Heart of Jesus is wounded anew by his own, in his own house, in the very place where He has taken up his divine dwelling in your midst. Become again perfect adorers and fervent ministers of Jesus in the Eucharist who, through you, makes Himself again present, immolates Himself anew and gives Himself to souls. Bring everyone to Jesus in the Eucharist: by adoration, by communion and by a greater love. Help everyone to approach the Eucharistic Jesus in a WORTHY MANNER, by cultivating in the faithful an awareness of sin, by inviting them to present themselves for the sacrament of Holy Communion in the state of grace, by educating them in the practice of frequent confession, which becomes necessary before receiving the Eucharist for those who are in mortal sin. Beloved sons, build a dam to hold back the flood of sacrileges. NEVER BEFORE AS IN THESE PRESENT TIMES HAVE SO MANY COMMUNIONS BEEN MADE AND IN SUCH AN UNWORTHY MANNER. The Church is deeply wounded by the multiplication of sacrilegious communions! The time has come when your heavenly Mother says: enough! I myself will fill up the great void about my Son Jesus, present in the Eucharist. I will form a barrier of love about his divine presence. I myself will do this through you, beloved sons, whom I wish to set up as a guard of love round about all the tabernacles of the earth."
Read the rest of the message at: “To The Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons” (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/).
“On this holy night, my motherly Heart is once again torn to see how widespread, even among priests, are the doubts concerning the divine presence of my Son Jesus in the mystery of the Eucharist. And thus indifference towards the sacrament of the Eucharist spreads, adoration and prayer are snuffed out, and the SACRILEGES of those who approach it in a state of mortal sin increase day by day” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi, December 24, 1977).
St. Hermenegild is even more particularly fitting for our situation because very soon a sacrilegious and invalid Mass (no Eucharist) will be obligatory. How many Catholics, and in particular how many priests and bishops will have the courage to do as St. Hermenegild and die for the Truth, who is Jesus (Jn 14:6) and not commit a sacrilege in celebrating a sacrilegious mass and not scandalize the faithful?!? My guess is that when this new sacrilegious mass will be introduced, all the priests and bishops will have to make some type of an oath of obedience which will kick off the persecution very quickly. Such an oath will also help identify immediately those few priests and bishops who will remain faithful to the immutable Truth, and thus will immediately become the prime targets of persecution.
It is very interesting that the “Council of Cardinals pledges allegiance to Pope Francis” (February 13, 2017; https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/breaking-council-of-cardinals-pledge-allegiance-to-pope-francis). Pope John Paul II (among many other occasions) spoke firmly to the us bishops against this "pick and choose smorgasbord type Catholicism" in LA in his September 1987 visit. In this talk Pope John Paul II did NOT tell the bishops of the world to obey him as Pope but to obey the Magisterium of the Church, because after Pope John Paul II has passed away, the Truth, who is Christ (Jn 14:6), remains constant and immutable!!! But Bergoglio is demanding obedience to the magisterium of Bergoglio, not to the Magisterium of the Church! (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/speeches/1987/september/documents/hf_jp-ii_spe_19870916_vescovi-stati-uniti_en.html).
Cardinal Ciappi, the theologian of the Popes, from Pius XII to John Paul II (at the beginning of his papacy): “The Third Secret (of Fatima) says that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the TOP. The official confirmation of the secret of La Salette (1846): “The Church shall have to pass through an awful crisis. The Church will be in eclipse. Rome (the Vatican) will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist” (http://nowprophecy.com/2015/03/17/la-salette-revisited-satans-head-and-marys-heel/; https://archive.org/stream/TheReignOfAntichrist/TheReignOfAntichrist_djvu.txt).
La Salette (1846): "Lucifer, with a great number of demons will be unchained from Hell. By degrees they shall abolish the Faith, even among persons consecrated to God. … In every place there will be extraordinary prodigies, because the true Faith has been extinguished and a false light illuminates the world. … The abomination shall be seen in holy places, in convents, the flowers of the Church will become putrid and the demon shall make himself the king of hearts. …" (http://www.tfsih.com/FeaturedWritings/ViewWriting.Aspx?WritingID=147).
We of little faith (Mt 8:26; 14:31) do not realize the power of the presence of the Eucharist to RESTRAIN “the powers of evil” (CCC 409), even if those not in the state of grace do not even realize or even care that the Eucharist exists. People who do not pray, but who do not break the peace openly right now, and who will not repent after the “Warning”, “the illumination of the consciences”, will change drastically for the worse after there is no more Eucharist in the public churches after the mass is invalidated. Similarly, the great majority of Christians today do not believe that they have an immortal soul and do not believe that hell exists or that a “good God would not send anyone to hell”. But it is not God who sends people to hell; people who do not want to be with God in prayer in this short life, and do not want to seek and to live the Truth of God as we say in the Our Father, “THY will be done”, when they die and see God as the absolute Truth in heaven, they will willingly throw themselves in the only other eternal abode where God is not present; they have freely chosen to follow “the father of lies” (Jn 8:44). “The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God” (CCC 1035).
We read in “The “Prophecy” of Saint Francis (Assisi)” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html):
“6. Those who in spiritual fervor will embrace piety with charity and zeal for the truth, will suffer persecutions and insults as if they were schismatics and disobedient. Because their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say that in this way they render a great honor to God in killing and removing from the face of the earth such pestilent men. But the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted and He will save them, because they hoped in Him. And then in order to respect their Head, they will act according to the Faith and they will chose to obey God rather than men, gaining for themselves eternal life; they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to die rather than consent to error and perfidy.”
“The hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God” (Jn 16:2; 9:22; 15:18; Acts 26:9-11; Is 66:5; Mt 24:9; 10:17-18, 22).
With the elimination of the Eucharist in the public churches I can now see how we can see very quickly all the rest of chapter 24 of Matthew and chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation before the centenary of Fatima, October 13, 2017. As Saint Paul tells us: “And you know what is RESTRAINING him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now RESTRAINS it will do so until he is OUT OF THE WAY. And then the lawless one will be revealed, …” (2Thess 2:6-8).
Thus when we will loose the Eucharist, “the continual burnt offering” (Dan 8:11; 12:11), “what is RESTRAINING him (the lawless one) now so that he may be revealed in his time” (2Thess 2:6-8), the few who will remain faithful to the Truth, will be greatly persecuted as happened to the young martyr of the Eucharist, Saint Hermenegild.
In the final message of the Blessed Virgin, October 13, 1973, on the anniversary of the last apparition and of the miracle of FATIMA, at Akita, Japan, She said to Sister Agnes Sasagawa: “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the DELUGE, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. WITH THE ROSARY, PRAY FOR THE POPE, THE BISHOPS, AND THE PRIESTS. The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees…churches and altars sacked, THE CHURCH WILL BE FULL OF THOSE WHO ACCEPT COMPROMISE and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.” (http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/akita.htm).
We have not seen yet “CHURCHES AND ALTARS SACKED” as least in Europe and USA. We of little faith (including myself) do not fully realize what Padre Pio and the saints were trying to tell us about the Mass. Thus we will be very astounded by the great explosion of persecution against the few who remain faithful to the truth after we loose the Eucharist.
The Secretary of State under Pius XI, Msgr. Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli, who knew Lucia and the third secret of Fatima well, prior to his elevation to the papacy in 1939 as Pius XII, made the following astonishing prophecy about a coming upheaval in the Church:
“Suppose, dear friend, that Communism [one of "the errors of Russia" mentioned in the Message of Fatima] was only the most visible of the instruments of subversion to be used against the Church and the traditions of Divine Revelation ... 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?" (http://www.fatima.org/thirdsecret/otherwitness.asp; in Italian: https://lasantissimaeucaristia.blogspot.it/p/sono-preoccupato-per-il-messaggio-che.html?m=1).
The prophecy of Saint Francis of Assisi indicated this loss of the “means of sanctification” and the loss of good faithfully pastors after we rebelled against God’s laws (in particular ‘Humanae Vitae’) explained by the Church. The few good children of their parents and of Holy Mother Church relied on this guidance, almost taken for granted. Now these few children of the Truth have to struggle and suffer to rediscover what was given to them by way of the struggles, sacrifices and blood of the true Christians before them. This uprising to rediscover the truth will come about from the little ones, usually not as intelligent as many theologians, but who have true humility. As Saint Louis de Montfort prophesied for our times, in this struggle to find and live the rejected Truth: “Almighty God and his holy Mother are to raise up great saints who will surpass in holiness most other saints as much as the cedars of Lebanon tower above little shrubs” (True Devotion to Mary, no. 47). The saints in this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21) will be great because a great number of people will not correspond with the graces offered to them by God; the graces refused by these people will go to those who are willing to follow Jesus with the cross even more. “The Lord has given me to know that when a soul does not accept the graces intended for it, another soul receives them immediately” (Diario of St. Faustina, no. 1294; see also no. 621).
It is very difficult for us priests today to offer “the truth” which “sets us free” (Jn 8:32; Jer 6,16), because so many people are used to by now a Christianity without the cross. According to POPE PAUL VI the temptation perhaps more aggressive in our times, which means “to empty the Cross of Christ” (1Cor 1:17), is hedonism, that is wellbeing, entertainment, pleasure, licentiousness, vice, uplifted to the abusive honor of primary finality of human existence” (Catechism, November 26, 1975).
Before the Second Vatican Council, people generally trusted the teachings of the Church without question. Parents might tell their younger children: “Do as I tell you”. But when parents explain the reasons for these rules more and more as the kids grow older, many of the kids take that opportunity to look for excuses or throw out all the rules of their parents. So God, through the Church, explained many things more thoroughly, that were taken for granted and generally accepted, in the Second Vatican Council and many people, with little or no humility, quickly interpreted the documents of the Council the way they wanted, or found excuses to change whatever they wanted to, or to throw out everything and decide for themselves the truth, as Adam and Eve did (Gen 3:4-5). 500 years ago the protestants left the Catholic Church; today the protestants remain in the Church and seek to send away those who have remained faithful to the Truth that never changes, God! As Saint Francis of Assisi and Archbishop Fulton Sheen told us, God has given to the very numerous baptized Catholics, who do not trust God, what they wanted: “Very few Christians will want to obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with a sincere heart and perfect charity. At the decisive moment of this crisis, a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the mortal poison of his error. … and for this reason Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a worthy Pastor, but a destroyer” (The Prophecy of Saint Francis of Assisi; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html).
Just as with the truth, in a similar way, we will soon lose our greatest means of sanctification, the Holy Mass and the Eucharist, and then some will wake up and realize what they took for granted and what they lost. As Pope Pius XII put it: “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?" In this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21) God is compelling a greater separation between those of God and those not of God (Mt 12:30), those of the Truth, and those not of the Truth, with less and less middle ground for those who want to drag their feet. There will be many in this period who will receive the great gift of martyrdom (Rev 7:14; 19:13; 22:14)! The early Christians told us: “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of Christians” (Tertullian)! “All is about to be accomplished that the Church may issue forth from the great suffering of its purification more beautiful and luminous in a renewed world” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi; November 5, 1977; September 8, 1978).
Mercedes Wilson; Founder of ‘Families of the Americas’, was a good friend of Pope John Paul II. On “Women of Grace” (no. 10220) broadcasted on May 5, 2011 by EWTN, Mercedes said: “When I was going to the United Nations meetings, I stopped to see John Paul II and ask for his blessing. John Paul II said to me: “This is war, and it is going to get worse.” On another occasion he said: “This is war, but we will win.” He had a great sense of humor, but when he got serious, he got serious. On another occasion, right after the fall of communism, I congratulated him on the fall of communism, because he was really the main actor in the fall of communism. I said to him: Thank God now we are going to have some years of peace. He got very serious. He looked at me and said: “I want you to know that there is a greater danger coming to the world than communism. He saw my surprise and he repeated it”.”
Pope John Paul II warned us in 1976: “We are standing before today the greatest fight that humanity has ever seen. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY HAS TOTALLY UNDERSTOOD THIS. We are TODAY before the FINAL CONFRONTATION between the Church and the anti-Church, between the Gospel and the anti-Gospel”.
Pope John Paul II said to a group of pilgrims in Fulda, West Germany, in November 1980, speaking about the secrets of Fatima, that: “We have to be prepared to suffer, before long, great trials which will require of us the disposition to sacrifice even our life for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is still possible to diminish this trial (predicted at Fatima), but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only in this manner can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the renewal of the Church been brought about in blood! It will not be different this time.”
“But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT HIS TIME IS SHORT!" (Rev 12:12).
“But this most severe trial, my beloved sons, will be of short duration. Through my special intervention, these hours will be shortened. And soon there will shine forth upon a renewed world the triumph of my Immaculate Heart." (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi, November 25, 1975; November 25, 1978).
“Pray and do penance that the times be shortened, and that the greatest possible number of my children may be eternally saved” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi, January 22, 1980).
“The times will be shortened, because I am Mother of Mercy, and each day I offer, at the throne of divine Justice, my prayer united to that of the children who are responding to me with a yes and consecrating themselves to my Immaculate Heart. … The times will be shortened, because the great struggle which is being waged between God and his Adversary is above all at the level of spirits and is taking place above you. This terrible battle is taking place between the heavenly spirits and the infernal spirits, between the angels of the Lord and the demons, between the powers of heaven and the powers of hell. In this great struggle, a special task has been entrusted to the Archangel Gabriel, who clothes you in the very strength of God; to the Archangel Raphael, who pours a healing balm on each of your wounds; and to the Archangel Michael, who leads all the angelic cohorts to the complete victory over the infernal cohorts. For this reason, I entrust you to the powerful protection of these archangels and of your guardian angels, so that you may be guided and defended in the struggle which is now being waged between heaven and earth, between paradise and hell, between Saint Michael the Archangel and Lucifer himself, who will appear very soon with all the power of the Antichrist. Thus you are being prepared for the great prodigy which will take place when, with the triumph of my Immaculate Heart, the heavenly dew of divine mercy will descend upon the world." (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi, September 29, 1995).
“SUFFERING IS THE GREATEST TREASURE ON EARTH; it purifies the soul. In suffering we learn who is our true friend. True love is measured by the thermometer of suffering…” (Diary of St. Faustina, no. 342).
In this the greatest storm ever, spiritually and physically, in the history of the Church and of the world, if we habituate ourselves with much sincere prayer to keep our eyes on Jesus, especially in the Blessed Sacrament with the help of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we will be able to walk on water, even if God offers us the great gift of martyrdom. If we take our eyes off of Jesus, we will sink into the sea as happened to Saint Peter (Mt 14:22-33)!
It is necessary to look at the signs of the times in order not to slide into the traps of Satan and to not be hypocrites (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3; 24:51)! But in order not to become distracted and not to be taken up by the great spiritual and physical storm, let us take to heart the council of our heavenly Mother (“To The Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons”; http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/):
“Now, as the battle grows more violent, I must provide moments of spiritual peace and repose for all. In these Cenacles you will enter into my repose because, by praying and making reparation with your heavenly Mother, you will be consoled and strengthened by me” (August 4, 1979).
“Travel this road WITH ME. I am leading you along it that, at the moment of greatest darkness, you may find there my light” (September 8, 1977).
“But as Jesus is truly in heaven, so also is He truly present on earth in the Eucharist: with his Body, his Blood, his Soul and his Divinity. His glorious reign will shine forth above all in the triumph of his Eucharistic Person, because the Eucharist will once again be the heart and center of the whole life of the Church. Jesus in the Eucharist will become the summit of all your prayer, which should be a prayer of adoration, of thanksgiving, of praise and of propitiation” (June 14, 1979).
“The hour of martyrdom is in preparation, and the Mother is gently leading you to the moment of your immolation. Do not look any longer at this world: look to Me; look upon the face of your heavenly Mother. I am reflecting upon you the light of paradise which awaits you, and at the hour of trial, you will be strengthened and encouraged. Do not look to creatures who, misled and corrupted by Satan, will hurl themselves upon you with hatred and violence” (June 19, 1976).
“My Heart must be as a refuge for you, in which you ought to live and from which you ought to contemplate all the events of this world. … But my Heart is still a refuge which protects you from all these events which are following one upon another. You will remain serene; you will not let yourself be troubled; you will have no fear. You will see all these things as from afar, without allowing yourself to be in the least affected by them. `But how?' you ask me. You will live in time, and yet you will be, as it were, outside of time. MY IMMACULATE HEART, O my son, is like a part of paradise in which I want to enclose my beloved sons in order that they may be preserved from the great events which await you, so that they may be consoled by me, prepared by me, directed by me for the great and approaching moment of my triumph! Remain therefore always in this refuge of mine” (January 5, 1974).
“At the time of Noah, immediately before the flood, those whom the Lord had destined to survive his terrible chastisement entered into the ark. In these your times, I am inviting al. my beloved children to enter into the Ark of the New Covenant which I have built in my IMMACULATE HEART for you, that they may be assisted by me to carry the bloody burden of the great trial, which precedes the coming of the day of the Lord” (July 30, 1986; March 15, 1993).
“Come, Lord Jesus!” (Rev 22:20).

The Four Conditions For A Valid Mass:
A Mass of the Roman Rite is invalid: 1) WHEN the celebrant of the Mass is not a validly ordained priest, 2) WHEN the priest does not have the proper intention, 3) WHEN wheat bread or grape wine is not used, 4) or WHEN the words “This is my Body” or “This is … my Blood” are not said by the Priest during the consecration of the Mass. (http://www.cuf.org/faithfacts/details_view.asp?ffID=188).
THE FOURTH CONDITION FOR A VALID MASS IS THE FORM:
Christ took the bread and the cup and gave thanks; He broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying: "Take and eat, this is my body." Giving the cup, he said: "Take and drink, this is the cup of my blood. Do this in memory of me." Accordingly, the Church has planned the celebration of the Eucharistic liturgy around the parts corresponding to these words and actions of Christ. The key phrases which confect the Eucharist are "This is My Body" and "This is ... My Blood," which when said by a priest with the proper intention and matter, truly show the priest acts in the Person of Christ. The other parts of the Eucharistic prayer are, according to St. Ambrose (also quoted in Summa Theologica), essentially preparatory; "by all the other words spoken, praise is rendered to God, prayer is put up for the people, for kings, for others, but when the time comes for perfecting the Sacrament, the priest no longer uses his own words but the words of Christ." St. Thomas Aquinas also explains this requirement in great detail in the Summa Theologica (Third Part, Question 78, Articles 1 through 6). Changing the words of the preparatory parts of the Eucharistic prayer is illicit and gravely sinful for the priest, but would not invalidate the Eucharist as long as "This is My Body" and "This is ... My Blood" are said.
THE CATECHISM OF THE COUNCIL OF TRENT (or The Catechism for Parish Priests) states very precisely that “the form consists of these words: This is My Body and This is ... My Blood”.
“The essential signs of the Eucharistic sacrament are wheat bread and grape wine, on which the blessing of the Holy Spirit is invoked and the priest pronounces the words of consecration spoken by Jesus during the Last Supper: “This is my body which will be given up for you.... This is the cup of my blood....”.” (CCC 1412).
Lumen Gentium 25 clearly teaches that the documents of an ecumenical council are INFALLIBLE (CCC 891). The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC 888-892; www.vatican.va/archive/ccc/) tell us that the doctrines of the Church are essential in order to arrive to sanctity. “When the Church through its supreme Magisterium proposes a doctrine “for belief as being divinely revealed,” and as the teaching of Christ, the definitions “must be adhered to with the obedience of faith.” This infallibility extends as fare as the deposit of divine Revelation itself” (CCC 891). But to the ordinary teaching of the Church “the faithful are to adhere to it with religious assent” which, though distinct from the assent of faith, is nonetheless an extension of it” (CCC 892). Thus the documents in an ecumenical council express in human language the absolute truths which cannot be changed, EVEN BY A FUTURE POPE FOR APPARENTLY GOOD MOTIVES TO MAKE THE NON CATHOLICS FEEL MORE AT EASE (at a Catholic Mass!) (false ecumenism, false mercy, false love!)! Before the New World Order totally manifests itself, there is needed to be in place a one world religion which “will be emptied of all divine content and will be the mystical body of the antichrist” (read the words of Cardinal Biffi and Archbishop Fulton Sheen, visit: http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/02/resignation-of-pope-benedict.html). The Church is the handmaid of the Truth and not the Author of the Truth which is God! The Truth is absolute even though we are living in a world today in which the culture totally refuses the possibility of the absolute Truth. These very numerous modern “enlightened” people of today say that the Truth must change according to the world, according to the consensus of the majority, and even according to each individual; this is exactly relativism which Pope Benedict XVI said is "the most profound difficulty of our time"!
Messages of Our Lady of Peace (Anguera, Brazil) – Pedro Regis (seer):
“The throne of Peter will fall” (12-13-2005)
“Dear children, pray. A King will be threatened and will try to remove him from his throne” (07-07-2007)
“Dear children, a Kingdom splits and another Kingdom will rise and will cause great confusion. A King will be taken from his throne and the people of God will lose” (02-02-2008).
“That which may be Peter will become Judas” (08-29-2008).
“The day will arrive in which on the throne of Peter will be seated the one who will change forever the direction of the Church. Do not leave the truth” (12-09-2008).
Prophecies of Blessed Anne-Catherine Emmerick (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecies-emmerick.html), May 13, 1820: “I SAW ALSO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO POPES. . . I SAW HOW BALEFUL (harmful) WOULD BE THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS FALSE CHURCH. I saw it increase in size; heretics of every kind came into the city (of Rome). The local clergy grew lukewarm, and I saw a great darkness… Once more I saw that the Church of Peter was undermined by a plan evolved by the SECRET SECT, while storms were damaging it. But I saw also that help was coming when distress had reached its peak. I saw again the Blessed Virgin ascend on the Church and spread her mantle [over it]. I saw a Pope who was at once gentle, and very firm....”
“The day will come when an apparently good and just man will appear. He will deceive many people, for he will realize great prodigies. He will come from the southern hemisphere and many people will consider him as a savior” (02-06-2010).
(It should be well noted that Bergoglio comes from Argentina which is found in the southern hemisphere.)
“Many religious will be contaminated. They will deny the dogmas and will draw away from the truth. There will arise a man, seemingly full of virtue, but in truth will be one sent by the devil. He will deceive many with his doctrine, but will meet a great barrio in the force and in the fidelity of my devoted ones and pre-chosen ones” (06-18-2009).
“The Church of my Jesus will bear heavy cross. The day will come when there will be two thrones, but only one will be the true successor of Peter. Is this the time of the great spiritual confusion for the Church. Stay with the truth. Hear what I say and stand firm in faith” (12-23-2008).
In this message there is a reference to a false pope. If you read the book by Antonio Socci “It is not Francis” (in Italian: “Non è Francesco”) and then his successive articles, one discovers founded motives for the invalidity of the election of Bergoglio that contradict in many points the regulations of the conclave.
The successive articles in Italian of Socci which demonstrate the invalidity of the election of Bergoglio:
L’anticipazione Della Premessa Di “NON E’ Francesco” E Delle Prime Pagine Del Capitolo Sul Conclave Del 2013
- Anche I Bergogliani Sono Ormai Sconcertati Da Bergoglio (LA Mia Risposta Alla Canonista Sull’invalidita’ Del Conclave 2013)

Also the “Prophecy of Saint Francis” (Assisi) (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html), tells us about “a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate”:
2. The power of the demons will be greater than usual, the immaculate purity of our religious community and of others, will withered to the point that very few Christians will want to obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with a sincere heart and perfect charity. At the decisive moment of this crisis, a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the mortal poison of his error.
7. Some preachers will keep silent about the truth and, denying the truth, they will trample upon the truth. The sanctity of life will be held in derision by those who only profess it outwardly, and for this reason Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a worthy Pastor, but a destroyer.
Other documents indicating the invalidity of the election of Bergoglio can be found in the article:
Pope Benedict XVI Forced To Resign
“A false one will rise up and another false one will arrive. That which I tell you now you will understand in the future” (01-26-2017).
“A proud man will order the modification of the Profession of Faith and his actions will please perverse men” (01-31-2017).
“Proud men will try to change the Truths of God, but these Truths are already imprinted in the heart of the Choosen Ones of God and will never be blotted out. … Seek strength in Prayer and the Eucharist” (01-28-2017).
“Dear children, dark days will come and the faithful will drink the bitter chalice of suffering. Those who love the truth will be persecuted and forced to be silent. I suffer for what awaits you. Defend Jesus and His Gospel. Do not fear. My Jesus needs your sincere and courageous testimony. You are living in the time of the Great Spiritual Battle. In your hands the Holy Rosary and the Sacred Scriptures; In your heart love for the truth. Your reward will be great if you remain in the truth” (02-04-2017).
“Dear children, bend your knees in prayer. You are living in the Great Spiritual Confusion. Love and defend the truth. My son Jesus is your all and in Him is your victory. Give value to the presence of my Jesus in the Eucharist. Do not receive Him in sin. Do not offend My Jesus who is already afflicted due to SACRILEGIOUS COMMUNIONS. I suffer for what is coming to you. Give testimony to the truth. The great plan of the devil is that of making men believe that the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist is only a symbolic fact. Be careful. Remain with the true Magisterium of the Church. You will still see horrors on the Earth. The Sacred will be thrown out and the enemies of God will be happy for this. Go forward in the truth” (01-17-2017).
“Only in this land (Brazil) has God given me permission to speak to you about future events” (06-05-2010).
“Dear children … The devil desires to destroy my plans with false signs and false apparitions, but he will not succeed because great is the power of the Lord” (05-31-2001).
“There will arrive a Great storm, but the True Church will remain faithful to My Son Jesus. The defeat of the false church will come and for all the traitors of the faith. To these my Jesus will say: Depart from Me, because I announced to you the Truth and you have taught lies. Precisely as in the times of Noah, they will be left outside. I suffer for what awaits you. Bend your knees in prayer. Seek strength in the Words of my Jesus and in the Eucharist. With the Rosary in hand, walk with Me and I will lead you to the One who is you only Way, Truth and Life. Go forward in the truth” (02-17-2017).

George Soros paid $650K to influence bishops during Pope’s US visit
BREAKING: Leaked e-mails show George Soros paid $650K to influence bishops during Pope’s US visit
August 23, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Leaked emails through WikiLeaks reveal that billionaire globalist George Soros - one of Hilary Clinton's top donors - paid $650,000 to influence Pope Francis’ September 2015 visit to the USA with a view to "shift[ing] national paradigms and priorities in the run-up to the 2016 presidential campaign." The funds were allocated in April 2015 and the report on their effectiveness suggests that successful achievements included, “Buy-in of individual bishops to more publicly voice support of economic and racial justice messages in order to begin to create a critical mass of bishops who are aligned with the Pope.” (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/breaking-leaked-e-mails-show-george-soros-paid-to-influence-bishops-during).

“Thus I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th century…the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of morals… As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and deeply profaned. FREEMASONRY, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the aim of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin and encouraging procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church… IN THIS SUPREME MOMENT OF NEED FOR THE CHURCH, THE ONE WHO SHOULD SPEAK WILL FALL SILENT.”

The posters, found on the Pasquino and all over Rome, read: “Ah Francis, you have intervened in Congregations, removed priests, decapitated the Order of Malta and the Franciscans of the Immaculate, ignored Cardinals... but where is your mercy?” The posters featured a photo of a cranky looking Pope Francis on his throne wrapped in a thick coat.
