IN KNOCK, Ireland on August 21, 1879, the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and St. John the Evangelist appeared to 15 people who saw them clearly against a church wall. Our Blessed Mother wore white and a golden crown, with her hands raised in prayer. To her right stood St. Joseph, and to her left was St. John wearing a mitre and holding a book in one hand while the other seemed to be pointing to an altar at the back on which was a young lamb with a cross as backdrop.
The apparition occurred only once and none of the saints uttered any word. It was officially approved by the Church as worthy of belief, as being supernatural.
On Oct. 11, 2019, yes, last year, mystic Fr. Michel Rodrique (a jolly priest from Quebec, Canada) received messages while he was in Knock, before the statues commemorating the 1879 apparition.
First to give him a message was St. John the Evangelist who explained the vision of 1879 as follows:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God... And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us... but his own people did not accept him. But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God... ‘Behold, I make all things new,’ says the Lord!”
Then, it was the Blessed Mother’s turn to speak. She told Fr. Michel the following:
“My dear children, I am here with you to warn you of what will soon happen on Earth. Behold here, the presence of My Son on the altar of His sacrifice, prefigured by the lamb that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, the lamb of the sacrifice for the salvation of the world, the lamb of the pascal mystery. In the mystery of the Eucharist is also present the Body of the Church: as militant in the journey on Earth, as suffering in the purification of purgatory, and as glorious in Her saints in heaven.
“The Church is the mystical body of Christ, present on the altar of the Cross through the Body of My Son, Jesus.
“As your Mother, I came here with Joseph, the patron of the Church and your patron. He is your defender against the evil works of all who have betrayed Jesus.
“The figure of John the evangelist, as an apostle, is also here. He was chosen by my Son, Jesus, at the foot of the Cross to protect me from that day until the day of my Assumption into heaven. He is here as a representative of all my faithful and consecrated children. He is the antithesis of the one who betrayed Jesus.
“Joseph, myself, and my Son, the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, are your models as the faithful family of the Eternal Father. Open the teachings of the Holy Tradition of the Church in regard to the transmitted teachings of John, my adoptive apostle. Open his letters and the book of Revelation. Soon you will understand what was written and seen in his vision.
“The Church will be sacrificed, as my Son was. My faithful will suffer before entering into the places prepared for you.
“The Cross of the lamb will shine soon for the Earth and for every person. They shall see their consciences when they see the Lamb of God on the Cross. It will be the Day of their enlightenment!
“My attitude of prayer, standing and looking up, and waiting with my open arms, is for the coming of that Day of Warning for everyone. The attitude of prayer shown by Joseph teaches the Church of what She must understand now: prayers, penance... penance.
“The last apostle on Earth represents the hierarchy of the Church in these days of confusion. Only the true teachings that go back to the apostles and have been transmitted through the living Tradition of the Church, as revealed by the Holy Spirit Who is the soul of the Church, Her sanctifier, will protect you from the false prophets and the false teaching of their sin. This teaching belongs to Satan, who has infiltrated the mystical hierarchical Body of my Son on Earth.
“I call the apostles of the end times. Arise with humble hearts, with obedient and dedicated lives to my Son, Jesus. Listen to what I said in La Salette and in Akita. The time is coming. Be ready. Confess your sins. Go to the confessional, fast, and pray the Rosary that will save you from the snares of the devil.
“Pray to your guardian angels. Come and adore my Son in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist. Meditate on the words of my Son, the Lamb of God, in the Gospel of John and his book of Revelation.
“In the end, I promise you the triumph of my Immaculate Heart.”
TWO DAYS LATER, Oct. 13, 2019, also in Knock, Jesus appeared to Fr, Michel and told him as follows:
“I am the Lamb of God. Soon, I will open the seven seals to fulfill the will of My Father. Whoever welcomes you, welcomes Me, and welcomes the blessing of My Father.
“When you see the Host, you see My Body and My Blood. You see My face that is presented to you as white, shining bread. I am the Bread of Life for everyone. Who will eat this Bread of Life will rise on the last day.
“A great darkness is coming now upon the world: a darkness of sin, of misery, of Satan, who will try to disfigure the face of My Body, which is My Church. He will try to disfigure My white face in the Holy Eucharist with an abominable sacrilege.
“At that moment, time will be up. A great disaster will engulf the world, as never before. Rome will fall but Satan will never prevail over My just and My faithful remnant.
“The sign will be in the sky, and the hand of My Father will vanquish the darkness of Satan, his false prophet, and his slithering acolytes.
“The seal will be broken. Prepare yourself for this day. My Mother will protect My just everywhere in the refuges prepared by her Immaculate Heart.
“My son, Michel, you will have great responsibilities on your shoulders. Know that the burden will be light, and the joy of My children will be great. Happy are those who are called to the supper of the Lamb. cherish and protect them. I nourish them. I bless them. They will not fear the pestilence of the enemy.”
