I See More Martyrs....

There is news of homosexual infiltration into Catholic schools in Canada:

And this shouldn't surprise us. On September 12, 1820, venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich related a vision:

"I saw a strange church being built against every rule...No angels were supervising the building operations. In that church nothing came from high above...There was only division and chaos. It's probably a church of human creation, following the latest fashion, as well as the new heterodox church of Rome, which seems of the same kind....I saw again the strange big church that was being built there [in Rome]. There was nothing holy in it....Everything was being done according to human reason. I saw all sorts of people, things, doctrines, and opinions. There was something proud, presumptuous, and violent about it, and they seemed to be very successful. I did not see a single angel nor a single saint helping in the work. But far away in the background, I saw the seat of a cruel people armed with spears, and I saw a laughing figure which said: 'Do build it as solid as you can; we will pull it to the ground.'"

And from August to October of 1820: "I see more martyrs, not now but in the future....I saw the secret sect relentlessly undermining the great Church. Near them I saw a horrible beast coming up from the sea....[My note: the "sea" in prophecy usually is taken to refer to the world of politics which is so tumultuous] When the Church had been for the most part destroyed [by the secret sect], and when only the sanctuary and altar were still standing, I saw the wreckers enter the Church with the Beast. There they met a Woman of noble carriage [The Blessed Virgin] who seemed to be with child because she walked slowly. At this sight, the enemies were terrorized, and the Beast could not take but another step forward. It projected its neck towards the Woman as if to devour her, but the Woman turned about and bowed down [towards the altar], her head touching the ground. Thereupon, I saw the Beast taking to flight towards the sea again, and the enemies were fleeing in the greatest confusion....Then, I saw that the Church was being promptly rebuilt, and she was more magnificent than ever before."

On April 20, 1820: "I had another vision of the great tribulation. It seems to me that a concession was demanded from the clergy which could not be granted. I saw many older priests, especially one, who wept bitterly. A few younger ones were also weeping. But others, and the lukewarm among them, readily did what was demanded. It was as if people were splitting into two camps."

On April 22, 1823: 'I saw that many pastors allowed themselves to be taken up with ideas that were dangerous to the Church. They were building a great, strange, and extravagant Church. Everyone was to be admitted in it in order to be united and have equal rights: Evangelicals, Catholics, sects of every description. Such was to be the new Church....But God had other designs." And again: "I see that when the Second Coming of Christ approaches, a bad priest will do much harm to the Church. When the time of the reign of Antichrist is near, a false religion will appear which will be opposed to the unity of God and His Church. This will cause the greatest schism the world has ever known. The nearer the time of the end, the more the darkness of Satan will spread on earth, the greater will be the number of the children of corruption, and the number of the just will correspondingly diminish."

The nearer the time of the end, the more the darkness of Satan will spread on earth... Isn't this precisely what we see today? The moral evils of abortion, homosexuality, contraception, pornography and a host of other evils and impurities are accepted today as normal. Evil is called good and good is called evil, thus fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah.

The homosexual network has made deep inroads into the Catholic Church. Which is why most parish priests do not speak out against the sin from their pulpits. "New Church" will not preach homosexuality as sin. Instead, it is deemed an acceptable "alternative lifestyle" by many ecclesiastics.

Sanctus Belle said...

We all must pray unceasingly for fortitude and perserverence.

Paul Anthony Melanson said...

Amen to that Sanctus Belle. In my opinion, it won't be long before the Church is forced to go underground.

Sarah, right. I can count on one hand the number of homilies I've heard in the last 20 years on Hell, the need for repentance, or the evils of abortion, homosexuality and contraception.

Fortitude and perseverance. These will become all the more necessary as the darkness engulfs everything.

I recommend Cardinal Mercier's daily devotion to the Holy Spirit. Each day of the week is spent praying for one of His gifts.

I have prayed this every day for some twenty years or so. His Eminence believed (and so do I) that the secret to sanctity is daily devotion to the Holy Spirit. I will post the devotion as soon as I am able.
