Saint Mariam of Jesus Crucified OCD, was hated by Satan. He received permission from God to possess this great Carmelite; she was so pure, virtuous, and holy, that the devil in turn begged Our Lord to be released. Christ the King said “no”. In turn, he essentially became the prisoner of Saint Mariam, who bore the wounds of Christ visibly and bore her sufferings with what I like to call the “Carmelite courage”. My former chaplain in Carmel, who is also an exorcist, said every time he would try to have one of her relics blessed, they would literally fly all over the room, because to this day the evil one remembers his days of imprisonment in the saint. But this is not all; Saint Mariam also had visions of the Prophet Elijah. She knew he would one day return before the second coming of Christ, so she would leave an empty place for him in the refectory (place where religious eat in common) and she would see him take his place. I promised you a post on Elijah, did I not?

ONE OF THE truly great figures of the Old Testament period was the prophet Elijah; so great, in fact, that he was preserved from death and will reappear at the end of time to prepare the faithful for the Day of the Lord. Among other things, this prophet denounced the wicked leader of Israel, King Ahab, for which reason he had to flee into hiding for his life and for the sake of continuing his divine ministry. Prior to his departure from earth on a heavenly chariot, he left a double portion of his spirit to his successor, Elisha.
The spirit of Elijah has reappeared once more on the face of the earth, in the person of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, now nearly three millennia after the original Prophet was whisked away into the heavens. Three years ago, the Archbishop went public regarding unprecedented moral and ecclesiastical corruption within the institutional Catholic Church at the highest levels of the hierarchy, to include Jorge Bergoglio.
As for The Last Word, we got down on our knees and thanked God that finally, someone of the stature of Archbishop Viganò had gone public with what we have known for decades: the institutional Church has been infiltrated and corrupted by homosexual predators and their perverted protectors.
Among other revelations, the Archbishop related in great detail a conversation that he had with Francis of Rome early in his reign, regarding the now infamous Mister Theodore McCarrick. Archbishop Viganò informed Francis that McCarrick had been sidelined by Pope Benedict XVI, based upon credible evidence that he was a serial homosexual predator upon seminarians and young priests. Shortly after hearing this from the Nuncio, Bergoglio reinstated McCarrick and restored him to public ministry and administration. We now know that McCarrick abused young boys as well, in his forty-year span of perverted sex abuse.
The secular media sensationalized the story, the deep church went on the attack against the Archbishop, the sycophant Vatican went into its typical spin and deflection mode, while Francis kept his usual silence.
As for The Last Word, we got down on our knees and thanked God that finally, someone of the stature of Archbishop Viganò had gone public with what we have known for decades: the institutional Church has been infiltrated and corrupted by homosexual predators and their perverted protectors. And now these predators and protectors have gained control of the most powerful ecclesiastical positions in the Church.
We Catholics owe a great debt of gratitude to the Archbishop, as does anyone who cares about truth and the welfare of the Church.
It was fifty years ago, as a minor seminarian, that I became personally aware of this infiltration. How bad was it? One classmate was drugged and sodomized as a teen seminarian; other classmates were similarly abused. Later, when I was in major seminary, all but one of my classmates were homosexual—80 percent. The reality was that many—maybe a majority—of priests and prelates were homosexuals, promoting and protecting each other. But very few believed us about this scandal, until Archbishop Viganò went public.
We Catholics owe a great debt of gratitude to the Archbishop, as does anyone who cares about truth and the welfare of the Church. And if Archbishop Viganò had never spoken or written again, he would have been justified, out of regard for his own life and having discharged his duty. But as Elijah returned like a roaring lion from the wilderness, so too the Archbishop continues to roar, from the wilderness of his exile.
But it is not just the Church for which the Archbishop has shown great solicitude. Nearly one year ago, Archbishop Viganò showed himself to be an enduring friend of the nation he formerly served as papal nuncio, the United States. Recognizing what was at stake for the nation and the entire world in the 2020 presidential election, the Archbishop weighed in on the matter, urging American Catholics to get on their knees in prayer and American citizens to go to the ballot boxes in good conscience. The Archbishop even wrote a personal note to President Trump, recognizing in him a restraining force against Globalist evil.
The litany of Globalist evils includes: stealing a national election, imprisoning healthy people in their homes; closing churches and denying the sacraments to the faithful; smothering everyone in unhealthy masks; collapsing business and services; crippling economies, shuttering schools and traumatizing children; and now most sinister of all: forcing the Covid Death Vax.
Without doubt the intervention of the Archbishop accomplished great good, despite the reality that the election was stolen from the Children of Light by the Children of Darkness—vivid biblical images that the Archbishop often employs. We who prayed in earnest for a positive outcome are spiritually the better for our efforts and both the deep state of the nation and the deep church have been more clearly exposed.
In addition to showing himself a faithful son of the Church and a friend of our nation, Archbishop Viganò has extended his solicitude as broadly as the fallen world, in his prophetic warnings that the manifestly evil, unprecedented events of the present are contributing to the rise of the Anti-Christ in the near future.
Certainly, at the top of the list of the evils perpetrated by the Globalist Children of Darkness has been the massive fraud related to a virus. This virus—probably man-made as a tool for Globalists—has been used as a rationale for unprecedented evil worldwide. The litany of Globalist evils includes: stealing a national election, imprisoning healthy people in their homes; closing churches and denying the sacraments to the faithful; smothering everyone in unhealthy masks; collapsing business and services; crippling economies, shuttering schools and traumatizing children; and now most sinister of all: forcing the Covid Death Vax.
It may be that his detractors cannot abide the apocalyptic alarms that the Archbishop continues to sound, as hell is unleashed upon the world.
Once again, the lion from the wilderness roared out a warning to the world, this time against the morally and physically lethal death vax, derived from the harvested organs of unborn or new born babies. These mRNA non-vaccines have shown themselves statistically more deadly than any vaccine in human history. To put things in perspective, as one doctor noted, children have only one chance in a million to die from a Covid virus, whereas children have a one in three thousand chance to die from the Covid death vaccines.
Recently, a few traditional Catholics have publicly criticized Archbishop Viganò, without substance or cause. How sad, considering that the Archbishop has become a champion for traditional Catholicism. Perhaps these critiques arise from his unwavering condemnation of the death vax, from those who have become compromised or disagree with him on this moral matter. Or it may be that his detractors cannot abide the apocalyptic alarms that the Archbishop continues to sound, as hell is unleashed upon the world.
If the final Day of the Lord is approaching, we will know for certain with the return of the great Prophet. Meanwhile, it is clear that the spirit of Elijah is even now at work, in the person of Archbishop Viganò.
