“CRY out these things to all, like the very echo of my voice. Let this be known to all, because it will help save many souls, and prevent much destruction in the Church and in the world.”
These were the words of the Blessed Mother to Elena Aiello in 1954. Were it not for such a call from no less than the Queen of the Universe, Mother of God, I again would have had second thoughts sharing yet another prophecy too detailed in dread, disturbed as we already are by a pandemic, natural disasters, political ferment and fracas, etc.
All prophetic mystical phenomena in our days urge that warnings be made known, so that mankind would not say it had never been warned. And so I do my little part, through this little column.
But prophecy through Elena who?
In 1982, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints declared her Servant of God. In 1991, she was given the title Venerable and is now on her way to sainthood as a declared Blessed in 2011.
Elena was born in 1895 and died in 1961. She was a mystic, stigmatic, victim soul, prophet and foundress of the Minim Tertiaries of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
She lived a holy life and had communicated with Jesus Christ and the Blessed Mother.
This column is the first part of a series on the messages of Our Lord Jesus and the Blessed Mother to her.
On Good Friday, April 16, 1954, Jesus, appearing with His wounds, told Elena as follows.
“Behold my child, see to what ends the sins of man have reduced me. The world has lowered itself in overflowing corruption. The governments of the people have risen like demons incarnated, and, while they speak of peace they prepare for war with the most devastating implements to destroy peoples and nations. Men have become ungrateful to My Sacred Heart, and abusing My Mercy, have transformed the earth into a scene of crime’.
“Numerous scandals are bringing souls to ruin particularly through the corruption of youth. Stirred up, and unrestrained in the enjoyment of the pleasures of the world, they have degraded their spirit in corruption and sin. The bad example of parents trains the family in scandal and infidelity, instead of virtue and prayer, which is almost dead on the lips of many. Stained and withered is the fountain of faith and sanctity the home’.
“The wills of men do not change. They live in their obstinacy of sin. More severe are the scourges and plagues to recall them to the way of God; but men still become furious, like wounded beasts (and harden their hearts against the Grace of God). The world is no longer worthy of pardon, but only of fire, destruction and death’.
“There must be more prayers and penances from the souls faithful to Me, in order to appease the just wrath of God, and to temperate the just sentence of punishment, SUSPENDED on earth by the intercession of My Beloved Mother, who is also the Mother of all men’.
“Oh! how sad is My Heart to see that men do not convert (or respond) to so many calls of love and grief, manifested by My Beloved Mother to errant men. Roaming in darkness, they continue to live in sin, and further away from God! But the scourge of fire is near, to purify the earth of the iniquities of the wicked. The justice of God requires reparation for the many offenses and misdeeds that cover the earth, and which can no longer be compromised. Men are obstinate in their guilt, and do not return to God’.
“The Church is opposed, and the priests are despised because of the bad ones who give scandal. Help Me, by suffering, to repair for so many offenses, and thus save at least in part, humanity precipitated in a slough of corruption and death’.
“Make it known to all men that, repentant, they must return to God, and, in doing so, may hope for pardon, and be saved from the just vengeance of a scorned God.” (End of quote)
Elena than noted that Jesus disappeared and was replaced by the Blessed Mother who was dressed in black, with her heart pierced with seven swords. The Blessed Mother then spoke and told her as follows.
“Listen attentively, and reveal to all:
“My Heart is sad for so many sufferings in an impending world in ruin. The justice of Our Father is most offended. Men live in their obstinacy of sin. The wrath of God is near. Soon the world will be afflicted with great calamities, bloody revolutions, frightful hurricanes, and the overflowing of streams and the seas’.
“Cry out until the priests of God lend their ears to my voice, to advise men that the time is near at hand, and if men do not return to God with prayers and penances, the world will be overturned in a new and more terrible war. Arms most deadly will destroy peoples and nations! The dictators of the earth, specimens infernal, will demolish the churches and desecrate the Holy Eucharist, and will destroy things most dear. In this impious war, much will be destroyed of that which has been built by the hands of man’.
“Clouds with lightning flashes of fire in the sky and a tempest of fire shall fall upon the world. This terrible scourge, never before seen in the history of humanity, will last seventy hours. Godless persons will be crushed and wiped out. Many will be lost because they remain in their obstinacy of sin. Then shall be seen the power of light over the power of darkness.
“Be not silent, my daughter, because the hours of darkness, of abandonment, are near.
“I am bending over the world, holding in suspension the justice of God. Otherwise these things would already have now come to pass. Prayers and penances are necessary because men must return to God and to My Immaculate Heart—the Mediatrix of men to God, and thus the world will be at least in part saved.” (To be continued)
