I’d like to share some brief updates to my last post (Sudden Destruction, from November 9th).
First: Divine Justice & 100 Years of Legal Abortion
As I mentioned in my webcast with Mark Mallett in August (31 minute mark), and which Fr. Heilman noted last month, legal abortion began exactly 100 years ago in the USSR. If you are inclined to suppose that God will tolerate much more than a century of the gravest institutionalized evil in history, think again. Ponder how God has dealt with evil societies in the past and remember that Marcionism (which supposes that the God “of the Old Testament” is different than the God “of the New Testament”) is a formally condemned heresy. Remember as well, in accordance with Leo XIII’s famous vision, that Satan was given 100 years to roam the earth with greater power than ever before. Many theories have been given as to when that 100 year reign began; the moment abortion was first legalized seems now to perhaps be the strongest contender.
But as I also mentioned in my last post, I found conflicting information when I was doing my research back in August; some sources indicating that abortion was first legalized in October 1920, others November 1920, and neither giving an exact date. Well, it turns out abortion was actually first legalized on November 18, 1920. So we are now exactly one week away from the exact 100 year anniversary of legal abortion, which, in turn, has since slaughtered over a billion children. No other genocide comes even close. Let us beg God’s Mercy — especially through praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the Hours of the Passion— upon this world, particularly in these days leading up to to November 18th; for that day will be the most tragic 100th anniversary in world history.
Second: The “Katechon,” which restrains the power of the Antichrist
In my last post, I also discussed a message from Luz de Maria, which warns of the public appearance of the Antichrist upon the imminent demise of the Katechon. Mark Mallett also wrote very powerfully on this yesterday.
In my post, I brought up how Vigano also recently referred to Trump as this very Katechon restraining the “mystery of iniquity” that St. Paul warned us of in II Thessalonians. But I should have pointed out that it may well be that the Katechon being referred to in Luz’s message is not Trump at all. I do not know what exactly Luz is referring to, but we should consider the possibility that it is actually some other secular force (perhaps in Europe) who is active in holding back the power of the Antichrist, preventing him from instituting his plans. We should also consider that it may be Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. I am sure that the Antichrist, whoever he is (but I’ll again assure you it’s not Pope Francis!), is terrified of Benedict and knows that if he tries to formally and explicitly institute the Great Apostasy in all its hideousness right now, Benedict will oppose it too strongly. We should be especially on guard for the imminent arrival of the Antichrist, therefore, when Benedict dies.
Third: Gisella Cardia’s last message
Gisella’s message from yesterday sounds to me like one last cry from Our Lord, begging us to listen to Him, begging us to see the Signs of the Times (so as to spiritually prepare and engage in the Great Battle for souls that He is enlisting us for) before these signs themselves become so extreme that those who have hitherto preferred scoffing will find breathing itself difficult. But those who have listened and responded have nothing to fear. So choose wisely while one can still choose.
My brothers and sisters, thank you for being here with joy in your heart: how much faith I see in your hearts. Please, why are you not listening to the most important messenger in the universe, My Mother, She who with Her love does everything to protect her children in this world of confusion? Please be in silence, prayer and contemplation: do not talk. Did you want to see the signs of the end times? The signs have arrived and you still do not believe; you have been told that apostasy would enter the Church because of proud, selfish theologians, and this has happened, overturning the words of my Gospel. I told you about famines, plague and diseases that would come, and you still do not believe. I told you that the noise of war would be heard: here it is, everything has already been revealed in the Bible— state against state, governments against governments, men against men, you are afraid of each other, they have taken away your freedom and still you do not believe. Oh, how much faith will I find on My return? And yet, how many trials can be overcome by you with faith and by praying the Holy Rosary. My children, trust and entrust yourselves [to Me] and I will always be beside you; follow in My footsteps and take My hand and I will be with you every day until the end. Now I bless you one by one, in the name of the Father, in My name and in the Holy Spirit, Amen.
And here I am, finding myself pressing the “publish” button for this post on the 11th minute, of the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month.
Indeed we now stand at the 11th hour.
Are you among those observing from the sidelines — perhaps out of curiosity, perhaps out of fear — wondering what to do with yourself? Thinking, perhaps, that it is too late in the game to make a life change? Think again. You can still come to the Vineyard of the Lord and He will welcome you with open arms. Perhaps you will even far outshine those who have long labored in the vineyard. But truly, this admonition applies to us all; observers and laborers alike — for each of us no doubt has some level of holiness, higher still than the one we now occupy, which we have neglected to rise to. Rise to it now, dear Christian. It is not too late!
“And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing; and he said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’ They said to him, ‘Because no one has hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You go into the vineyard too.’”And when evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, ‘Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last, up to the first.’ And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius. Now when the first came, they thought they would receive more; but each of them also received a denarius. And on receiving it they grumbled at the householder, saying, ‘These last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat.’ But he replied to one of them, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong; did you not agree with me for a denarius? Take what belongs to you, and go; I choose to give to this last as I give to you. Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?‘ So the last will be first, and the first last.”
