DESPITE the dire, nay, terrifying prophecies for our times, it’s not all bad news. It is even the best news mankind has ever faced according to credible mystics themselves who are the same sources of apocalyptic prognostications.
And so it is that Catholic researchers and writers Mark Mallett and Daniel O’Connor, both familiar with the modern-day prophecies warning of chastisements, are not all pessimistic about what’s coming past Covid-19. Yes, they quote saints and to-be saints, including living mystics talk about the answer to our generations-old petition to God the Father, “Thy kingdom come,” and the Fatima promise of the Blessed Mother that “in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
It’s a future not too far away if we are to believe rhyming prophecies, but such days if not centuries, are to come after the end of the current era. O’Connor fictionalized a day that could turn out a reality in that future as follows:
“As she did before the Era, your grandmother lives in the home with your wife and children—she is one hundred and ten years old, but now rises to begin her day with no less ease and no less joy than you did minutes before; her previous Alzheimer's and arthritis having vanished without a trace. Your wife and children arise in the same manner, and you all join together to continue your prayer of thanksgiving to God for another day of joy, beauty, harmony, and peace—living in His Will and His Kingdom upon the earth. Reciting this prayer with your family, you bask in such happiness that your fondest memory from the old era does not even begin to hold a candle to it. And there is not the remotest hint (nor is there ever) of the things that once robbed your home of that joy: the discord, the fighting of children, the former sinful habits of those dwelling within its walls; and gone too is any vestige of mental, emotional, and physical ailments. In the old era, all these sorry things often invaded the peace of your home; now, they are scarcely even memories—for although the mere factual recognition of their past existence has not disappeared from your mind, no morsel of the lingering hurt or nagging temptation to withhold forgiveness that memory once tended to bring with it remains. For upon the initiation of the Era, God not only miraculously cured men’s wills and intellects of what they inherited from the Fall but also their memories.”
Yes, it’s a future of mankind had not Adam and Eve partaken of the apple. And it will be populated and repopulated by people who survive the chastisements of the present era.
It’s not all bad news. The best is yet to come.
But in the meantime, there’s the need to prepare for this era’s end which is not without pain. The role of each Catholic is paramount in this phase, as he/she belongs to faith with graces available only to the rock on which Peter was enthroned. Much of what is to happen in this era would rest much on each Catholic’s compliance with the appeals from the supernatural, mostly from Marian apparitions of our days. But it is also compliance which does not exclude non-Catholics.
What else is at the end of our era that we have to prepare for through thorough conversion, a complete return to the Will of God?
Much has been speculated about the messages of the Blessed Mother as conveyed to the three visionaries of Fatima in 1917. Specifically, on whether Fatima’s “third secret” has been fully revealed, amid nagging speculations that a more spectacular prophecy has been kept from the world.
However, those demanding more from Fatima will not find anything more spectacularly dreadful than the warnings conveyed by the Blessed Mother through Sister Agnes Sasagawa in Akita, Japan, an event officially approved by the Church.
On the anniversary of the Fatima apparitions on October 13, 1973, the Blessed Mother appeared to Sister Agnes in her convent in Akita and told her as follows:
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres... churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sorrow. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them...
“Many men in this world afflict the Lord. I desire souls to console Him to soften the anger of the Heavenly Father. I wish, with my Son, for souls who will repair by their suffering and their poverty for the sinners and ingrates.
“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before.
“Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day, recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.”
THESE WERE THE APPEALS MADE IN 1973. Were the Blessed Mother’s calls given enough importance? Has the world changed for the better since then?
The implications are dire, worse than Covid 19.
