Pope Francis Corrects His Own Defenders; Admits that Naked Paganism Has Entered the Church in Rome. (Now would be a good time to wake up)

I apologize for yet another post so soon (longtime subscribers know how uncharacteristic this is of me), but a brief retraction is necessary. Those who read my last post may recall that, within it, I speculated that Pope Francis himself may be most pleased of all that those idols were cast into the Tiber. Well, I stand corrected by reality. For he has just made a public apology for the very act.

But that is not what is most significant here; the real news is that, within the same announcement, he admitted that the statues were indeed of the Pagan “goddess” Pachamama. Here are Pope Francis’ own words, taken from the Vatican’s official news site:

Those who followed the debate this week will recall that the usual defend-everything-the-Vatican-does-no-matter-what crowd focused all their efforts on attempting to prove that the statues weren’t of Pachamama, but were merely innocuous symbols of life and fertility. They attempted to “flood Twitter” with all sorts of examples of symbolic statues in Catholic churches that allegedly proved their (now proven erroneous) argument. Because Pachamama is — as a matter of objective and indisputable fact — a Pagan “goddess.” Look it up yourself. Now, Pope Francis has said that the statues were there “without idolatrous intentions.” Fair enough. I said the same thing in my last post:

I’m guessing those who brought [the statues] are, like many Catholics today, good people who are simply clueless and do not realize that syncretism is a heresy and a sin, and do not realize what demons they are inviting in by their actions. (It has long been observed that many indigenous South American Catholics have not left their Paganism to become Catholic, but have simply mixed the two together). My point here is only to say that this is a major sign of the times, not merely by accident brought into light publicly … For discerning Catholics would do well to pay close attention when naked Paganism (pun intended) pierces its way into the very heart of Christendom.

The intention of the evidently clueless Catholics who placed the statues there matters for naught — the objective reality at hand, which has now been settled, is what matters. Pope Francis has, furthermore, proclaimed that the idols were recovered by police and may just be displayed at the closing Mass of the Synod in St. Peter’s Basilica itself.  God, help us. No, I do not think this is the fulfillment of Matthew 24:15 just yet… but I do think it is a forerunner; one that indicates that the Abomination of Desolation itself is very, very near:

In the following verses, Jesus goes on to speak of the signs of His coming that will immediately follow the aforementioned sacrilege.

I am glad I did not wait any longer to publish The Crown of History. It looks like we may be even closer than I thought to the events described therein. I am going to try, therefore, to take my own advice and refrain from further commentary, as I have already said what needs to be said regarding the times at hand in that book and in The Crown of Sanctity.

Pray for me and be assured of my daily prayers for you all

In Christ, through Mary,

Daniel

When Royalty Speaks, Idols are Cast Out, and the Long-Prophesied Events Approach

If you are a Catholic and a shiver of joy does not run down your spine when you hear of pagan idols being grabbed out of the sanctuary of a Catholic Church and cast into a river, then you might want check and see if your head is screwed on just right (Or, at least, check if your shoes are on too tight). (Some background from NCRegister for those who do not know what I am talking about:

Of course, the usual suspects immediately took to twitter to express their feigned outrage at this “sin of theft” (stealing is generally wrong, but not an intrinsic evil — as for example, adultery is indeed an intrinsic evil — there are a few times when stealing is called for, and a Pagan Idol in a Catholic Sanctuary is obviously one such time), “desecration” (that which is not sacred in the first place cannot be desecrated), and “disrespect of the indigenous” (the most disrespectful thing you could possibly do to a Pagan is condone his Paganism).

And boy do I feel bad for them if their outrage was more than just a show; I will not bother listing here all the biographies of saints they ought not read, and Scriptural passages they ought to rip from their Bibles, in order to protect their delicate feelings from further harm (many have already provided these lists). But they were also quick to justify their outrage with certain flimsy attempts at arguments which were almost all of the form: “There exist legitimate Catholic symbols in Churches (e.g. the Pelican, the Lamb), some of which even trace their origin to Pagan roots, therefore there is no such thing as an illegitimate symbol that even now truly does amount to Paganism or Idolatry.” 

I will not bother refuting these arguments here (again, plenty others have already done this), for all this sophistry ignores one fact: even if the arguments were valid, they would still be completely irrelevant. 

For, even if the statues were not idols in actuality, they were idols by all appearances — from an ordinary layman’s perspective (which, of course, is what matters in an ordinary layman’s determination of what he must do), the statues sure seemed to be carvings of the Pagan “goddess” Pachamama. This is obvious to anyone who does any basic research into the Andean “goddess” of fertility/earth, called Pachamama. See, for example, the image to the right of one of many pagan Pachamama statues currently existing in South America.

Complaining of their being cast into the Tiber under the premise that they “weren’t actually idols” reminds me of those who call out for a police officer’s blood after he shoots someone who was pointing a BB-gun at him that, by all appearances, seemed to be a real gun. How on earth was the police officer supposed to know it wasn’t real? Can police officers not defend themselves?

Furthermore, these “statues” (idols) loitered around the Synod for over 2 weeks without any solid refutation coming from the Vatican (everything that was said, in fact — that the statues were “symbols of life, fertility, and time” which is exactly what the Pagan goddess is — seemed to lend credit to the conclusion that the statues were indeed of Pachamama), and anyone with an ounce of honesty is, therefore, obliged to assume the appearance is true. 

Another example: suppose one were to put a statue of a goat with a human torso and a pentagram in the middle of a prayer circle and bow down before it in a Catholic Church. By all appearances, such a goat seems to be the main idol in Satanism, Baphomet, and, absent an absolutely solid indication to the contrary, one must assume the appearance is correct. The organizers of the event would completely fail in their attempts to justify themselves if, after some courageous man grabbed the statue and destroyed it, they complained,“hold on. This was just a symbol of how delicious goat cheese is; the pentagram emblazoned upon it was, likewise, to glorify how beautiful Geometry is, and the human torso was to symbolize how much we humans gain from goats!!

But there is the deeper problem. Pachamama isn’t just any idol. Considering how significant this Synod is (many have pointed out this may well be the Synod that was prophesied at Garabandal to immediately precede the Warning), it would be wise to keep a close eye on what transpires during it. For while the Church is indeed indefectible, the devil will nevertheless be busy at work squeezing as much sin and error as possible in to the Church’s various non-Magisterial acts in these days wherein the Great Apostasy approaches its summit (rest assured, however, that any actual teachings on Faith or Morals contained in a formal act of the Magisterium promulgated by the Pope are heresy-free). [note: previous remarks posted here have been removed in accordance with news stories posted 10/25. update will follow]

Anyway, I decided to dig a little deeper.

I’ve got quite a library here for my philosophy and religion research, and decided to look up Pachamama in the massive “Encyclopedia of Religion” (edited by Lindsay Jones). Within it’s over 10,000 pages are the following fascinating insights into Pachamama:

In brief: for Amazonian Pagans, Pachamama worship is essential for bringing back their false secular messiah, Athahuallpa, to institute a false Messianic Age, in which the “conquerors” (i.e. Europeans and Westerners, and the associated genuine Catholicism) are themselves conquered; an age which superficially acknowledges some Christian aspects but really places that all secondary to the Paganism which, apparently, many South American “Catholics” never actually left when they became Catholic. Is this reminding you of anything? If not, let me jog your memory:

Now, I’m not some crazed conspiracy theorist trying to argue that these silly wooden carvings at this synod are actually a demonic plan to enthrone the Antichrist. I’m guessing those who brought them are, like many Catholics today, good people who are simply clueless and do not realize that syncretism is a heresy and a sin, and do not realize what demons they are inviting in by their actions. (It has long been observed that many indigenous South American Catholics have not left their Paganism to become Catholic, but have simply mixed the two together). My point here is only to say that this is a major sign of the times, not merely by accident brought into light publicly — but inspired by God Himself, who I believe called those men to throw the idols into the Tiber — with which God wishes to draw our attention to what is soon coming in a much larger and much more serious way. For discerning Catholics would do well to pay close attention when naked Paganism (pun intended) pierces its way into the very heart of Christendom.

For those enamored with the world and with “dialogue,” (which the casting out of the idols was apparently also a “sin against”) may I kindly remind them that idolatry is incredibly serious. Hopefully we all remember the First Commandment. But let me share here what the Blessed Virgin revealed to the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta about the Holy Family’s arrival in Egypt:

And a similar thing was revealed to Venerable Agreda. Jesus — as a mere tiny child — would not so much as tolerate the presence of an Idol in His proximity; rather, with an immense exercise of His Omnipotence, which was in no way dimmed despite His small stature at that time, He literally destroyed these Pagan idols (and this, before Christianity’s existence, back when Paganism was nowhere near as guilty as it is today) and cast them into the abyss.

So we don’t need to rhetorically ask “what would Jesus do?” We know what He did do. He destroyed the idols.

As for dialogue, which we also apparently “sin against” by removing idols from Catholic Sanctuaries, Jesus is equally un-condoning of the modern approach wherein the truth is conveniently pushed aside for the sake of endless petty conversations about pleasantries that save and sanctify no one. Here’s what Jesus told Luisa about that:

Yes, dialogue is important. But truth is more important. And I, for one, will not tolerate being lectured on “dialogue” by the likes of Fr. James Martin and company. He (and those like him), while endlessly harping on dialogue, do almost none of it. They travel around the country and the world attending posh events while giving talks to groups of people that already agree with them and fawn over them. By Fr. Jim’s own open admission, any persecution he may have received in this process has been scarcely more than a small bump in the road with no effect on how very pleasant, easy, and fun his “dialogue adventures” have been.

So why won’t I tolerate hearing lectures from him on the need for dialogue?

Because my job is to dialogue. I teach philosophy and religion at a secular, public, New York college. Every day I have to stand in front of dozens of 20 year old college students, most of whom are coming from the ideological perspective one would expect from that demographic, and discuss with them life’s deepest and most important questions. I know what genuine dialogue is, and I know what phony dialogue is; Fr Jim and company are entirely in the latter category. Genuine dialogue is not endlessly ignoring the very truths that people need to hear to change their lives for the better. Genuine dialogue is not refusing to answer direct questions with the full, naked truth. Genuine dialogue is not employing sophistry so as to evade having to ever say the unpopular truths. And genuine dialogue is certainly not inviting pagan Idols into our Church. 

But, when it is precisely this that happens at the very highest levels of the Church, then it becomes impossible to not realize…

That these are the long-prophesied times. We have arrived. The battle has started, and there is no safety any more. So don’t pretend that there is any, and instead, join the battleon the right side.

As is becoming ever more clear (notwithstanding the increasingly shrill insistence of a few self-proclaimed eschatologists who will apparently never abandon their erroneous view that the Antichrist can only possibly come immediately before the end of time, after an only somewhat nice era of peace, ), we now live on the very cusp of the emergence of the Antichrist. Deluding one’s self into believing that this is not so (or, worse, could not possibly be so) only makes one more likely to succumb to his seduction.

Ponder this: Of all the people alive in the world today, who do you suppose might be uniquely qualified to give a sober and insightful analysis of the nature of the day in which we live, informed by knowledge gained at the very highest levels of society?

What about royalty? What about not just any royalty, but a devout Catholic royalty from one of the most powerful royal families in history?

Enter His Imperial and Royal Highness Archduke Rudolf of Austria, of the House of Habsburg (sometimes spelled “Hapsburg”) — “one of the most influential and distinguished royal houses of Europe,” which “dominated European politics for nearly five centuries.”

Are you, oh skeptic, willing to believe that such a man as he might just not be a mere wild-eyed conspiracy theorist?

Well, Archduke Rudolf just gave a rare interview to the National Catholic Register; published the same day the idols were cast into the Tiber. Here is part of what he said:

“What are the dangers facing us today?”

Today? This is my own feeling. I read a lot. I pray a lot. I discuss a lot. Basically, we must be close to the years of the anti-Christ, because everything is in a horrible state. Look at how the population and the people live: The materialism, which is one of the main dangers, has become the master of most of the souls of the world. This is a terrible thing!

Basically, I have the feeling that the devil is working now, if I can say it, like hell on the world, to destroy the Church.  And, obviously, he is helped by some people in the Church, also, which is very sad. We have to pray a lot and help the priests and the Church to change now and to become really Christian, in a way. And I think this Pope is doing his best to move the whole thing in the right direction, but I would hate to be in his place because it must be so tough.

You read that right. and I’ll include it to the side as a subtitled image so that even the skimmers won’t miss it. He also shared some beautiful advice on raising Catholic children, which I cannot help but share here even though it is not exactly the purpose of this post:

“Please give our readers some examples of how you and your wife bolstered the children in faith.”   

We took them to Mass often, even during the week. We made sure they went to holy confession. …We made pilgrimages with them, for example, to Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina and to Częstochowa in Poland….We gave them the right books to read. When they were smaller especially, we took care to introduce them to good books that would elevate their souls and their spirits and keep their consciences straight. In the evening, it was important to review these readings at home. We were also very attentive to how our children were choosing their friends. And we tried to avoid the internet, explaining how it could destroy them. Things like that. This is very big work.

But it is about time I bring this post to a close, so I will wrap it up with a few more things:

  • We also see more people waking up to Fulton Sheen’s insistence that we live in the age of the Antichrist: http://www.ncregister.com/blog/joseph-pronechen/did-fulton-sheen-prophecy-about-these-times .
  • And speaking of the Antichrist and those who prophesy his imminent arrival, I’d like to again recommend Fr. Michel Rodrigue, whom I wrote about in my last post. Since writing that last post, I have watched two videos of his preaching: here and here; and I am now even more confident in his authenticity. A friend of mine reviewed dozens of CDs of Fr. Michel’s talks and shared with me, also, that Fr. Michel has said — with some sadness — that the Father’s next message to him will simply be to announce the arrival of the tribulations.
  • If you are looking for a trustworthy guide through the confusion of the times, look no further than Cardinal Sarah. His latest book, The Day is Now Far Spent, is excellent.
  • Christine Watkins has published a book on the Warning — that glorious, unprecedented event about to occur — which I highly recommend.

Pedro Regis, a seer from South America who has the support of his Bishop, was in Italy this past week. Here are some excerpts from his messages:

And, in case any of that sounds “over the top” or “doom and gloom,” or whatever other pejorative the Modernists would like to hurl at it, I will close this post with the words of our Blessed Lord Himself in Today’s Gospel reading:

New Book, New Talks, New Prophecies

Today is my 33rd birthday, and I desire that each of you give me a gift…

…namely, that you contribute your part to hastening the Restoration of All Things in Christ—which I intend to experience, God Willing, on this side of the grave.

For it does not matter that today is my birthday, but what does matter is that it is the 116th anniversary of one of history’s greatest Pope’s (Pope St. Pius X’s) Magisterial Proclamation of the Era of Peace — in his very first encyclical, E Supremi, in which he explicitly intended to give the figure of his entire pontificate (the very motto of which — “To Restore All Things in Christ” — he accordingly named this encyclical). It was no accident that he chose to promulgate this prophecy of the Era on October 4th; the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, in whose life we see the beginnings of the Restoration of the Order of Eden. For the Restoration that is Christ’s is no lukewarm restoration — no half-hearted peace treaty — no; it is, rather, exactly what Pope St. John Paul II said the Lord’s Prayer consists in: “This is our great hope and our petition: ‘Your Kingdom come’—a kingdom of peace, justice, and serenity, that will re-establish the original harmony of creation.” — Pope St. John Paul II (General Audience. November 6, 2002)

Yes, God Wills for the entire world what we saw beginning in that humble friar’s life. “E Supremi” literally translates to “from the top” or “from on high.” Indeed, as the Church Universal boldly proclaims out loud every single morning in the Gospel Canticle of the Divine Office, “The Dawn From On High Shall Break Upon Us.” So, if God has placed anything upon your heart in order to contribute to this Glorious Restoration, then do not delay. Do it. Make it happen. No excuses. Whatever it takes.

If, however, you could use some ideas of things to do to hasten the Reign, then here is one: you could promote my new book, The Crown of History, which I published two weeks ago, on the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross, September 14, 2019. (As this coming Restoration of All Things in Christ is indeed none other than the Triumph of His Holy Cross, I wanted to publish the book on that very feast day.) 

I wrote my last book, The Crown of Sanctity, in hopes of doing my small part to hasten this Glorious Reign. But it quickly became apparent that the book is so massive as to render its promulgation rather difficult! Indeed, I had been receiving much feedback (as soon as I published it) from readers saying they would love to also have access to a smaller version of the same basic points, so that they could more easily distribute it and recommend it to others. So, in response to that steady stream of requests I had been receiving for something similar but smaller, I have been busy at work the last several months trying to compress its most important points into something less than one fifth the size.

My hope with The Crown of History is to reach a much wider audience than I could reach with The Crown of Sanctity, and to invite people to read The Crown of Sanctity by beginning with a much smaller book that is nevertheless striving after the same goal. Consequently, I am indeed charging a (very small) fee for this book; I don’t know how else to reach a larger audience than I already have access to with my blog other than advertising. But I cannot afford to do my own advertising (I am a dirt poor adjunct; for those unacquainted with how Higher Education in America works today, “adjunct” means a professor who teaches more courses than most tenured professors, but is paid half the salary!) So, I will need to make a few bucks selling this initially, then funnel that money into promoting it further. (I also cannot rely on a publisher to promote this, as I am self-publishing it… any publisher would insist I charge two or three times as much, which would greatly limit its distribution, hence my decision to self publish). Furthermore, The Crown of Sanctity is still free (and always will be), so I do not feel like I am hiding any of this direly needed truth behind a paywall, as I’ve already said within that book just about everything that is in the Crown of History. 

Anyway, despite the fact that this book’s author — yours truly — is radically unworthy, I still believe that the contents of this book, if only they are sufficiently spread throughout the world, can indeed help mitigate the Chastisements, save and sanctify souls, and hasten the Era. I have no desire to promote myself here… if I knew of any other resource out there that was this small, this inexpensive, this accessible, this comprehensive, and this up-to-date (e.g. referencing the Vatican’s official biography of Luisa published in 2016), then I would instead simply have dedicated myself to promulgating it. But since I know of no such thing, I figured I simply had to write it… and here it is. So, if you feel so called (and I sure hope you do!!!), here are a few things you could do to help:

  • Post a link to it’s Amazon Page (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XBHG7GZ) on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. I have no social media, so I cannot do this myself. I also do not post on forums or blog/news comment boxes, so if you participate in any, I’d be grateful as well if you would promote this on such outlets. Even the National Catholic Register recently agreed to run an advertisement promoting Luisa’s revelations (I do not know who purchased the ad), so let us not be too quick to assume that certain outlets might not be fitting for promoting the Divine Will. 
  • If you are a Catholic-email-forwarder, send it out to your email lists. You could send a link to its Amazon page, this blog post, and/or the book’s own dedicated website: www.CrownOfHistory.com
  • If you would be interested in distributing paperback copies to others, then please get in touch with me (Daniel@DSDOConnor.com) if you would like to place a bulk order (50+ copies); I can do that for you at a cost of less than half the list price on Amazon. Pastors, understandably so, tend to get rather irritated at people leaving materials out at their parishes without permission — so it’s much better to simply give copies to individual people, mail them out, give them to bookstores, bring them to Catholic events, etc. But I’ve carefully ordered the material in this book so that it can be fruitfully given to anyone; not just Catholics.
  • If you are associated with a bookstore or any other group that has access to the IngramSpark catalog, you can order the book at a steep discount there and needn’t do so by contacting me. 
  • If you feel you can do so in honesty and justice, you could leave it a 5-star review on Amazon (the more 5 star reviews a book has, the more Amazon’s algorithms refer customers to it)
  • Want to promote it but feel unprepared to do so with your name attached to this promotion? That’s fine — anything you can do, even anonymously, to draw more people to CrownOfHistory.com, or the book’s Amazon page, will help and I will be eternally grateful for it.
    • I do not ask for donations on the site, because God has been very good to me in giving me a job which, although it pays little, does pay enough for me to provide a dignified living to my family; and we have no desire for a standard of living any higher than that. That being said, if you’d like to donate specifically to this effort of promoting the Crown of History, then you can do so with this link. Please put “Crown of History promotion” as a note along with the donation, and you have my word that I will use the funds entirely and only for precisely that purpose.  Your donation will also be confidential. (This is not a 503c… it’s just me and my wife, so unfortunately it will not be a tax-deductible donation) I will likely use the money to purchase more copies of the paperback so I can mail them out to bookstores (being a self-published work, I am not given freebie author copies; I have to buy them), and/or promote the book with Amazon, Google, or something similar. 

Jesus tells Luisa that if we had any idea how glorious a thing these truths that He reveals to her really are, we would “lay down our lives to fling them into the world.” (August 26, 1928) Elsewhere He says that, similarly, we would fear no sacrifice and spare no expense in so doing.  Consider what Jesus is saying by admonishing us to fling these truths into the world. To “fling” something is not to sit on one’s rear end for months or years and twiddle one’s thumbs, in a false human “prudence,” waiting for some undefined “right time,” which will never come, in which one can slowly and over the course of years introduce one or two people to the Divine Will. No, it means we must shout this from the rooftops!

And while we of course must always obey the Church’s decisions, Jesus is also here not admonishing us to only proceed to spread the Divine Will within the safe and comfortable confines of the parish after we have received express permission to do so from each of the 8 million clueless bureaucrats working within the chancery of one’s Diocese!  No, rather, Jesus is admonishing us to fling this into the world. Well, if you were to “fling” my last book out there, you’d give someone a concussion. But here is something you can fling out there! Accordingly, I have carefully laid out the material in The Crown of History in such a way that it can be safely handed to anyone — Catholic or non-Catholic — in hopes of gently inviting them into the Divine Will. In the first sections, for example, I aim solely at inspiration (not at admonishment), and I avoid going more deeply into matters than is necessary for an invitatory work. 

Now, obviously, we should never be pushy, repetitive, annoying, etc. — instead, we must always be natural, graceful, gentle, prudent (e.g. not wasting our time spreading this to people we can tell will not be open), and eager to move on to the next mission after sowing a seed — leaving that seed’s growth to God — instead of continually nagging the same people. At the same time, however, we should be on-fire, zealous, unafraid of any sacrifice or expense, and firmly deciding to never give up, no matter what. 

As Our Lord laments… the children of this world are so much more zealous in their own undertakings than are the children of light! (cf. Luke 16:8) If only we had half the zeal in promoting the Divine Will that the worldly have for promoting their ridiculous scams, the Era would have come long ago!  

If you’d like a video overview/introduction to this book, you can take a look at a talk I gave a couple weeks ago for the online Divine Will cenacle at Mary’s Hill.

My apologies for waiting a few weeks to publish a post on my blog: I do not want to bother my blog followers with more emails than necessary, so I had wanted to wait to write a post until the audiobook was also ready. Unfortunately I ran into some technical issues in recording it, and have to re-do most of what I already did; but the audiobook should still be available very soon. 

Last Divine Will Conference

Last month I was in Tepatitlan, Mexico (near Guadalajara) speaking on the Divine Will. I believe the talks were recorded; and they are in both English and Spanish (my talks in English were being translated into Spanish as I gave them). I will post the videos if and when they become available. But for now I would like to just say that the Divine Will is absolutely thriving in Mexico. It was a large events center at which I spoke for two days, and it was packed with hundreds. Not only that, but a large portion of the group — perhaps even a third of the attendees — were young! If you happen to live in an area that is a bit of a Divine-Will-Desert, do not despair. This is already beginning its explosion throughout the world. 

Next Divine Will Conference

Next month, I will be speaking at a Divine Will Conference in Arlington, Texas. If you are interested in attending, you can register here: https://www.divinewillinternationalconference.org/ 

New Prophecies

Fr. Michel

I’d also like to take the opportunity of this post to share with you all the messages of a certain prophet whom I have been paying attention to for some time but about whom I have not yet openly spoken: A Canadian exorcist priest, Fr. Michel Rodrigue.

A few weeks after I spoke on the Divine Will in Wisconsin in May, I was informed by a reader that this priest had preached “across the lake” (in Michigan, that is) mere days after I had spoken …and with a very similar message. 

I’d like to share some main points of his message here. But a few words before doing so on authenticity. I do not know enough about  him to claim that I am standing by him 100%; but I will say that everything I’ve seen so far inclines me towards believing he is authentic. Unfortunately, it seems that his message is sometimes associated with some much less reliable “seers,” and this has likely thus far harmed the promulgation of his words. Fr. Michel, however, clearly does not deserve to be considered as merely on par with the less reliable “seers” that his message can be found connected to, and whom he has apparently spoken at the same events as, so please be very careful to avoid any “guilt by association” judgments on him. 

In 2009, Fr. Michel received revelations from Heaven that he was called to found a new order with the specific purpose of forming priests for the New Era — that is, for the imminent coming of the Kingdom of God on earth. (The same thing spoken of in In Sinu Jesu, where we see that it is through holy priests that this Era will largely dawn upon earth… the same thing Jesus said to Luisa.) The Order’s name is The Apostolic Fraternity of St. Benedict Joseph Labre

In 2015, the Vatican approved the formation of his order. Yes, this is a big deal. And it would be rather ridiculous not to at least take his message seriously and give it careful discernment. His message, among other things, says the following: (Please note: I am not taking the following from my own direct hearing of Fr. Michel; I am taking it from notes that readers have sent me who, in turn, have heard him preach. I may be getting some things wrong.)

His Monastery

  • What will likely stick with most people from his message is how incredibly short the time left is. Just over a year ago, (before I knew of Fr. Michel) I offered some speculations on when the Warning might come… let me just say that, it looks like that might not be too inaccurate… if anything, Fr. Michel’s messages seem to indicate things may start happening even sooner than I had there speculated.
  • Complete financial, economic, and societal collapse is around the corner. He is encouraging people to have three months of food and basic supplies handy. I’ll take this as an opportunity to remind readers of my “Sober Minded Preparedness” post 
  • He is not, however, advocating for survivalism. After the Warning, the faithful remnant, he says, will be miraculously lead to safe holy refuges, where they can wait out the Great Chastisements that will envelop the world for 3 and a half years — during which perhaps ⅔ of the population will die — after which the Glorious Era of Peace comes, when the faithful leave the refuges to repopulate the world
    • The faithful will be miraculously provided for in the refuges; Fr. Michel is NOT telling us to gather up 3 years worth of food/supplies. 
  • The only real preparation for what is to come is found in the grace of God. Obviously, we all know the basics of that (Repentance, Eucharist, Confession, Rosary, Divine Mercy, etc.) Some more specifics:
    • Go to confession in 2019, he says, and from now on at least once a month. (He also says he was told to have his Monastery’s construction completed by May 2020… and that his Monastery would be a refuge)
    • Have a blessed Holy Family image in your home, consecrate your home to the Holy Family
    • Pray to your Guardian Angel daily
    • Have the Miraculous Medal
  • After the Warning, there will be 6 weeks during which the devil will be banished and people will be given their last chance to choose their side. Priests will be in the Confessional non stop during these weeks. This is the essential period of time to evangelize like never before and lead as many souls as possible to a State of Grace
    • Throw away your Television at this point (or, I’d say, better yet: throw it out now!). The Antichrist will be using digital communication to spread his tentacles throughout the world and lure in all but those most strong in their faith
  • At the end of the 6 weeks, decision time is over, and those who have chosen God will be lead to the refuges by their Guardian Angels (or a mysterious flame that appears before you). 
  • Immediately after the faithful are in refuges, the New World Order commences, and soon thereafter nuclear war begins
  • The Antichrist will assume power and The Mark of the Beast will be required of all (we must prefer death to this Mark); this mark will be a chip. The Antichrist will assume the seat of Peter in Rome. (No, Pope Francis is not the Antichrist. Fr. Michel says the Antichrist is a Muslim currently living in Europe.)
  • The Continents themselves will move during the Chastisements 
  • The words of Consecration will be changed, and thus the Mass will be rendered invalid. This will be done to please all peoples/religions. 
  • America will have seven of its cities (one of which is New York) destroyed during the Chastisements, but will otherwise be largely protected, due to how devoted Catholics here have been to the Divine Mercy Chaplet
  • The Three Days of Darkness will ultimately purify the world, at the end of the 3 years of Chastisements.
  • After the 3 Days, Christ comes in Grace to institute the Glorious Era

This is NOT the end of the world, he reiterates. “It is the end of the evil that is in the world.”

A few words of my own on Fr. Michel’s prophecies: I do not think that he knows about Luisa’s revelations, but I am sure that if he did, he would be a zealous promoter of them. Remember that, as true as everything he said is, it is also true that one of the most powerful ways to mitigate the chastisements, hasten the Era, and acquire sure protection — spiritual and, yes, even physical — is to live in and promote the Divine Will. Let these exhortations from Fr. Michel serve as yet another encouragement for us to be on fire for spreading Luisa’s revelations! And, of course, we must not allow ourselves to be disappointed if the Era does not arrive within several years! I do not believe that the timeline for these events is yet set in stone; so much still depends upon our response. Let us, therefore, be zealous!

PS

  • Last summer, I finally got around to recording some of my philosophy lectures so that students of mine who miss class can catch up on the material. That being said, in accordance with the major move today to make college course content more openly, publicly, and freely available, I am allowing anyone to view these on YouTube. If by any chance you would like to see them, you can here.
  • A number of readers have reached out to me to inform me that they have attempted to leave 5 star reviews of the Crown of History, but  Amazon has been arbitrarily rejecting them. I have no idea why this is happening, but if this has happened to you — I nevertheless want to thank you for your kind words, despite Amazon’s refusal to post them. If there was anything you wanted to say about the book, but which Amazon has rejected, you can always email it to me privately so that I can keep it on file for future promotion of the book. For example, the review below was sent to me by a reader who tried to leave it on Amazon but had it rejected without explanation:
  • God has blessed us with another child (number 4) due to arrive on Easter 2020. Please pray all goes well. Thank you!!
  • If you ordered the Crown of History right away, your copy may have a few typos scattered throughout which I have now corrected in the current printing. My apologies. But they were minor and in no way affect the content of the book, so even if you have a copy from the very first printing, you will be fine citing it alongside the more recent printings
