In the Third and Fourth Part of “Rome’s” Final Pope? Benedict XVI, I dedicated multiple chapters to different prophecies of saints, scripture and Our Lady warning Her children of the apostacy and schism in the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, and the final attack on the Petrine See. In this blog post, below, I am including a snippet from the book about an apparition that “fell in our lap”. Before I do so I thought it was so necessary to say something that has been on my heart for many months now. But I could not put words to it, until I read this, in Father Leonard Kramer’s The Book of Destiny, about Elijah’s mission in particular when he returns with Henoch (besides the conversion of the Jews and Gentiles) :
“Thus, after Elias has purified the Church of all hypocrisy, she shall stand in imperishable beauty before the Lord .”
“HYPOCRISY” hit the ball out of the park for me. I have said this before: I am the biggest coward that I know and I am still learning to exercise my own muscle of courage, but the greatest crisis in the Church, besides the attack on the rock of Peter right now, is the hypocrisy being practiced by even the “just” in the bosom of the Church. “The practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform” is what is at play right now. Oh, our Father Elijah, please PURGE the Church of this great evil! Hypocrisy is the word to be sure. Because how many people say, “I love the rock of Peter and the Immaculate Heart”, but as soon as their esteem in the eyes of man is jeopardized, fear of malice or loss of position in the Church, they will compromise and do the opposite of what Our Lord said:
That which I tell you in the dark, speak ye in the light: and that which you hear in the ear, preach ye upon the housetops. ~Matthew 10:27~
Today, it would seem, everyone and their mother in Our Lord’s Church is rather hearing the truth in the light and then concealing it in the darkness. They are not preaching it on the housetops, they are covering their ears or keeping it to themselves. WE WILL NOT BECOME SAINTS THIS WAY! Many souls will answer for this on judgment day, not just the priests. For sheep who know the truth and then bury it, will hear the same words from the master in the parable of the talents. I do find it rather interesting that I finally understand HOW the standard of schism is the Roman Pontiff (Canon Law 751). Because those who have finally had the courage to come out and say Benedict is the only reigning pope since April 19th, 2005 have either lost friends or gained followers.
Who the pope is, and who the pope is not, matters so much that it makes Catholics turn their back on other Catholics (even if they were once friends) if they even for a second question the single narrative of thought or mess with Satan’s status quo (it is not God’s status quo, for He comes through the front door). If that is not one definition of schism I don’t know what is. Notice that those who have been given the grace to see the truth have learned to patiently bear the persecution that comes with it, with angelic fortitude and continue to pray that God will shed light on those who are afraid. Because if it’s not hypocrisy… is it not fear, with talking about who the real pope is? Indeed. Fear and hypocrisy are both at play today in Holy Mother Church, and it has become necessary that God send Elijah and Henoch to set things straight.
Two more things stood out to me in The Book of Destiny. Father Kramer reminded his readers that, “the things contained in this book [the book of the Apocalypse] ‘MUST’ be done. They will be decrees of God.” Kramer later went on to make so profound a remark about the early Church’s holiness; I was struck to say the least:
“Frequent confession was not common in those days of persecution, for the true believers lived almost sinless lives. Sinners do not have the moral courage to suffer and die for their faith. The persecution cleared them out of the Church.”
Quite frankly, I look around and do not see that above holiness around me today. It is scarce… precisely because either so few souls know who the real pope is, or the ones that do know, keep it to themselves. You know how I have been talking about courage so often? Well, that is because it is linked to our sanctity and if we do not have the courage to defend the rock of Peter, who is the standard of schism AND of unity, we will find ourselves schisming from Holy Mother Church in the not-too-distant horizon. You will be forced to choose between Jorge Bergoglio, who, will lead the flock into the counterfeit Church OR you will choose to follow Elijah and Henoch, who, will fight to the death for the flock of Christ to follow them into The New Jerusalem. For remember the above, “the persecution cleared them out of the Church”. In short, we need to stop talking about sanctity but rather BE sanctified so we can have the strength to suffer and die for Jesus and Mary when the opportunities present themselves. In this case… actions truly speak louder than words.
SNIPPET FROM OUR BOOK and other powerful quotes by Our Lady:
“You have, My child, received now the full story of the approach of Antichrist to the Eternal City of Rome. It is a sad fact that the apocalyptic days are here, and the visions of John will now unfold to completeness. There is much that was not revealed, but these are the days of the Revelations. You will read the visions of John, the Apocalypse, and you will find yourself filled with the spirit of knowledge and wisdom. The story of the end days will unfold as you read. You will not be found without knowledge if you will take the Book of love and life, your Bible, and read it.” – Our Lady of the Roses, October 2, 1975 (There were about a total of 36 quotes Our Lady relayed about the book of the Apocalypse to Veronica the seer: read more here https://www.tldm.org/Directives/d133.htm)
“My child, they converse of the secret that I gave at Fatima. It is a simple explanation. It could not be fully revealed because of the drastic nature of My message. How I warned and warned that satan would enter into the highest realms of the hierarchy in Rome. The Third Secret, My child, is that satan would enter into My Son’s Church.” – Our Lady of the Roses, May 13, 1978
“When I came to Fatima many years ago, I knew that communism would go throughout the world destroying many nations and attacking My Son’s Church. Therefore, I made a promise that if the Pope, the Pope of those days and the Pope today, would unite with all the bishops of the world, all together on one day—not the world—but the bishops and the Pope will unite and pray for the consecration of Russia. I do not mean the world, My children; I mean Russia—Russia, the scourge of mankind.” – Our Lady of the Roses, October 2, 1987
“When one immerses themselves in researching a topic, and in our case of Fatima and the papacy, any past researcher will tell you that they found more evidence they were not at all expecting to find, in the midst of their quest for knowledge. I am 99.9% skeptical about ANY apparitions not approved by the Catholic Church. As such, I stay clear from those like Medjugorje (there is an excellent sermon on Sensus Fidelium about why this “apparition” is not Our Lady) and Garabandal and thus, look to those that have been approved, such as Akita, Fatima, Lourdes and La Salette etc. There is a list of guidelines the Church abides by with approving apparitions, as well as with private revelations, as worthy of belief and they are as follows:
Norms for Judging Apparitions
On Feb. 25, 1978, the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued Norms of the Congregation for Proceeding in Judging Alleged Apparitions and Revelations. With regard to apparitions and the bishop’s solemn duty, the document states: “The competent ecclesiastical authority has the serious obligation to inform itself without delay and to carry out a diligent investigation.”
The bishop appoints an investigative commission of experts. For their judgment, the commission applies these four norms:
1. The moral certainty, or at least great probability, of the existence of the miraculous must be established by means of a serious investigation. The members of the investigative commission accomplish this by seeking out eyewitnesses, especially the visionaries themselves; by visiting the place of the alleged apparitions; by conducting interviews with any or all who can provide the necessary information to assure that the actual facts have been established.
2. The personal qualities of the subjects who claim to have the apparition: their mental equilibrium, honesty, moral attitude, sincerity; their attitude of obedience to ecclesiastical authority; their ability to return to the regimen of normal practices of the faith.
3. The content of the revelation or message: it must be theologically and morally true and free of error.
4. The apparition must produce sound devotion and rich spiritual fruits which last (e.g., the spirit of prayer, conversion, increase of charity).
The commission gathers and reviews all available evidence. After months and even years of study, the investigative team submits a report, signed by the chairman, to the bishop with their verdict.
*There is also five negative criteria that can be applied. The text is from Discerning the Miraculous: Norms for Judging Apparitions and Private Revelations by Fr. Frederick Jelly, O.P., published in the annual Marian Studies, 1993, p.41-55.
However, one “thrown by the wayside” apparition came my way, and the messages were so likened to Fatima, but more in depth, that I set out to see if others I look to as spiritual fathers supported this apparition. Sure enough it had support from Father Nicholas Gruner, Father Paul Kramer and Father Malachi Martin. In the summer of 2014, Father Gruner even went to the Bayside, New York Shrine to talk about his favorite subject of Fatima there. Bayside, for those readers who have never heard of it, is where Veronica ‘the voice-box of God’ Lueken claims to have been visited by the Blessed Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ, angels, and numerous saints. I was able to find the very talk Father Gruner gave to the crowd at the Shrine, as well as finding Father Malachi’s reply to his opinion of “Our Lady of the Roses” in Bayside to Veronica:
Mario Aguero, a friend of the late Fr. Malachi Martin, had lunch with Father in a Manhattan restaurant in the summer of 1998, less than a year before he died, when the topic of Marian apparitions came up. Mario asked Fr. Malachi Martin his opinion on the Bayside apparitions. Although he expressed to Mario his disbelief with other major and more popular alleged apparitions, this Vatican insider and advisor to three Popes stated, “I believe that Bayside is a true apparition. For many years I did not believe that Bayside was legitimate but certain circumstances now have led me to believe that in fact it is a true apparition.”
None of us are obliged to even look into apparitions, believe them, nor embrace them, even if approved, as Catholics to go to heaven. However, when Our Lord sends His Mother, especially when the apparitions are approved by Holy Mother Church, why would we choose to be lukewarm about it? One of the things that struck me about Veronica was the treatment she received from the clergy (read our Misc. Files to read more in depth about her sufferings, ill treatment and why these visions were brushed under the rug).
“The apparitions of Jesus and Mary to the seer, Veronica Lueken, transpired in the Diocese of Brooklyn (New York) from 1970-1994. As the prophecies unfold today, the heavenly visitations have produced a powerful and holy site of pilgrimage and a vibrant, soul-saving Mission that reaches out to a troubled world with Our Lady’s urgent message.
The responsibility for judging apparitions rests primarily with the local bishop. He has norms to guide him, but above all, and especially as a shepherd of Christ, he has a serious obligation to the Church and the people of God to conduct a fair and honest investigation. And so, for many it was an insult and outrage that the late Bishop of Brooklyn, Francis Mugavero, issued a declaration against the Bayside apparitions in November, 1986. After all, he never even interviewed the seer herself, Veronica! How could such a flagrant violation of human rights and canon law be taken seriously?
Still a letter, good or bad, signed by a bishop carries considerable weight and, sadly, this contributed mightily to the misinformation, confusion and prejudice that abounds today against Bayside and that exploits the ignorance and fears of clergy and laity alike.
Here are the facts that you were never told. We trust that this will be enlightening and liberating and hope that you not only revisit Bayside in thought and prayer but also in person by pilgrimage. Meanwhile, we pray for the only thing that will ever repair this terrible injustice: a true, thorough, canonical investigation of the Bayside apparitions.”
After reading the simple above excerpt, before reading the rest of the article that can be read in our Misc. Files, it began to dawn on me why Father Gruner traveled to Bayside and gave a talk. Then later Father Malachi saying what he did in support, and Father Kramer using much of Our Lady of the Roses quotes in his books according to the Bayside website. Again, you have no obligation to take any of these approved apparitions or private revelations seriously, but I urge you to have an open mind and open heart because Our Lady’s warnings are urgent and many souls are already walking down the wide path, rather than the narrow.
When even the clergy, as we saw with Veronica’s bishop fail to go through the normal protocol, this is all proof that Satan is doing everything in his power to sequester the Fatima message when Mary chooses other seers to attempt to reveal the Third Secret once more. Due to the visions being so long, I included some in the Misc. Files [in part 2 of the book] but I encourage readers to see the link in the footnotes where the official website is found with all her visions laid out in great detail, detail that was a true labor of love, so you can take your own time to read through them. The few quotes I will include in this chapter only support the claim of Padre Pio saying Satan has entered the Bosom of the Church:
“As I told you in the past, Lucifer has been released from hell with many other demons in his legion of demons now loosed upon earth. Lucifer is in Rome and plans to destroy the papacy.” – Our Lady of the Roses, November 20, 1978
Since Fr. Malachi Martin read the REAL Third Secret and also knew what the Our Lady of the Roses apparitions said concerning the Third Secret, he would naturally have rejected the apparitions if they contradicted what he himself had read in the REAL Third Secret. But he did not; rather, he believed in Our Lady of the Rose’s message.
Fr. Malachi Martin said that the Third Secret is your worst nightmare, multiplied exponentially.
Our Lady of the Roses told us on May 13, 1978, “How I warned and warned that satan would enter into the highest realms of the hierarchy in Rome. The Third Secret, My child, is that satan would enter into My Son’s Church.”
Martin made reference to a diabolic rite held in Rome in his 1990 non-fiction best-seller about geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, in which he wrote:
“Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops’ chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI’s reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to ‘the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary’. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia—rites and practices— was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.” (p. 632)
These allegations have largely gone unnoticed, possibly because he was so crafty in his descriptions that he might even have been referring to the coronation of Pope Paul VI. But he revealed much more about this alleged ritual in one of his last works, Windswept House: A Vatican Novel (1996). In this story, he vividly described a ceremony called “The Enthronement of the Fallen Archangel Lucifer” supposedly held in St. Paul’s Chapel in the Vatican, but linked with concurrent satanic rites here in the U.S., on June 29, 1963, barely a week after the election of Paul VI. In the novel, before he dies, a pope leaves a secret account of the situation on his desk for the next occupant of the throne of Peter, a thinly-disguised John Paul II.
According to The New American, Martin confirmed that the ceremony did indeed occur as he had described. “Oh yes, it is true; very much so,” the magazine reported he said. “But the only way I could put that down into print is in novelistic form.”
Martin’s accusation of a satanic ritual at the Vatican was also confirmed by John Loeffler, host of the Steel on Steel radio show. Mr. Loeffler personally asked Fr. Malachi Martin (who had been a regular guest on his show) about the reported dedication to satan within the Vatican:
“You know Malachi confirmed—the first part of his book, Windswept House—he confirmed the dedication of the Vatican to satan in a secret ceremony that occurred unknown even to the Pope at that time, that he managed to pick up. And I did ask him, ‘Was this true? Did it happen?’ And he [Fr. Martin] said, ‘yes, it did.'” – John Loeffler (July 29, 2000 radio show)
In 1999, Fr. Malachi Martin fell downstairs while in a wheelchair. Before he died, he reportedly insisted that it was not an accident, but that he had been pushed.“
“Satan, Lucifer in human form, entered into Rome in the year 1972. He cut off the rule, the role of the Holy Father, Pope Paul VI. Lucifer has controlled Rome and continues this control now.
And I tell you now, My children, unless you pray and make My counsel known to all of the ruling fathers of the Eternal City of Rome, My Son’s Church, His House, will be forced into the catacombs. A great struggle lies ahead for mankind. The eventual outcome is for good of all, for this trial in My Son’s Church will be a true proving ground for all the faithful. Many latter-day saints shall rise out of the tribulation.” – Our Lady, September 7, 1978
