MANY prophecies given only a few months ago through modern-day Catholic mystics have come true: the Covid-19 pandemic, the unusual disasters in nature, the civil disturbances in various countries, the confusion in the Vatican and the Catholic Church, among other recent prognostications.
More are gaining momentum: the continuing onslaught of Covid 19 variants, the proposal to impose "vaccine passports," the development of the microchip amid the pandemic, the suppression of religion via lockdowns if not actual persecutions, the rising tension among powerful nations that could lead to war, etc.
Even as far as decades ago in the 20th century, prophecies from no less than Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are without a doubt happening in our days.
Consider what Jesus Christ told mystic Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta way back in 1918:
"Don’t you remember how many times I showed you great mortality, cities depopulated, almost deserted, and you told Me, ‘No, don’t do this. And if You really want to do it, You must allow them to have the time to receive the Sacraments?’ I am doing that; what else do you want? But the heart of man is hard and not completely tired. Man has not yet touched the summit of all evils, and therefore he is not yet satiated; so, he does not surrender, and looks with indifference even upon the epidemic. But these are the preludes. The time will come! — it will come — when I will make this evil and perverted generation almost disappear from the earth...
"...I will do unforeseen and unexpected things in order to confuse them, and make them comprehend the instability of human things and of themselves — to make them comprehend that God alone is the stable Being from Whom they can expect every good and that if they want Justice and Peace, they must come to the Fount of true Justice and of true Peace. Otherwise, they will not be able to do anything; they will continue to struggle; and if it may seem that they will arrange peace, it will not be lasting, and the brawls will start again, more strongly. My daughter, the way things are now, only my omnipotent finger can fix them. At the right time I will place it, but great trials are needed and will occur in the world...
"There will be a general uproar — confusion everywhere. I will renew the world with the sword, with fire and with water, with sudden deaths, and with contagious diseases. I will make new things. The nations will form a sort of tower of Babel; they will reach the point of being unable to understand one another; the peoples will revolt among themselves; they will no longer want kings. All will be humiliated, and peace will come only from Me. And if you hear them say ‘peace’, that will not be true, but apparent. Once I have purged everything, I will place my finger in a surprising way, and I will give the true Peace..." (End of quote.)
Also, the Holy Spirit communicated to mystic Maria Valtorta on the Feast of the Sacred Heart on June 12, 1953 as follows:
"On this same feast three years ago, when the war in Korea was about to break out, I already said how strongly disturbed and troubled is the Divine Justice toward all of Humanity for its way of acting. And I announced to you [Maria], that because of this, terrible chastisements would have descended upon the Earth. The facts: floods, cyclones [hurricanes], earthquakes with victims and disasters everywhere, have confirmed My statement. But today I repeat to you that Divine Justice is at the limit of its tolerance.
"Do not blame what is happening on anything else but the piling up of sins of every kind being committed always more on Earth. [They are] horrible sins against the Faith, the Church, good morals; unnamable vices—compared to which adultery is still a small thing; hatred and desire of death against the Church and the Priesthood; crimes, sacrileges in actions and words—and I could continue endlessly. These things—and nothing else—are the cause of the misfortunes that have happened until now, and also of future [misfortunes], always more grievous, which will befall the Earth and Humanity because of the always more grievous faults committed.
"...And pray, and urge prayer, that this corruption of Humanity may cease, if one wants to avoid frightful catastrophes. I am Wisdom and Truth, and I know what is to happen."
But the Holy Spirit also assured Maria Valtorta of God's compassion and mercy to those who would turn to Him in difficult times.
On June 16, 1950, the Holy Spirit told Valtorta:
"...God will be compassionate and merciful with whom He wills. That is, with all those who, in their turn and with goodwill, want to be "sons of God", having welcomed the Christ with love, and followed and practiced the commandments and instructions of the divine Word.
"God draws good from all things, always. From the Fault of Adam, He drew the good of the Redemption—the measure of the divine Charity which is infinite and most perfect.
"He drew the confirmation of His infinite power, justice and goodness, from the stubbornness of Pharaoh toward the divine orders which Moses, His servant, transmitted to the Egyptian monarch. Thus, through the plagues that struck Egypt, and through the killing of the firstborn, and of the Egyptians in the Red Sea, Pharaoh knew that God is the Lord. And the People of God also knew it, through those prodigies which confirmed them in their faith in the Only God, in their God.
"From the fault of Israel—the crucifier of His incarnate Word—God drew the blessed certainty of the Resurrection of the flesh and of the eternal Jerusalem, where the spirits of the just ascend, and where later the flesh of the just will be reunited to their spirits, for an eternal life of joy.
"From all, the Most Good draws good things. It is only necessary that man, with his good will, should know how to draw his good from all that God does. How? By not rebelling, and by not estranging himself from his Heavenly Father, if His hand is heavy and His chalice bitter.
"You are sinners. All of you. Even the best are imperfect. Jesus was innocent, holy, perfect. And yet the Father loaded upon Him the whole weight of the faults of men so that it consumed Him on Golgotha. And He presented to Jesus the bitterest chalice—more bitter than the bitterness of all that is disgusting: from the abandonment of His Father to the suffering of His Mother; from the betrayal of a friend and apostle to the cowardice of the other apostles; and from the denial of His Cephas to the ingratitude of the people. Among men, no one has borne nor will bear the burden, nor will drink the chalice which crushed and embittered the Christ: the Innocent.
"Hence, know how to imitate Him—in His perfect goodwill, and in His most holy obedience—in order to draw your good from all that God permits to befall you, to test you and to reward you."
