SOME five years ago, on August 16, 2016, Jesus Christ mentioned the Philippines in His message to stigmatist mystic Luz De Maria de Bonilla. It was a relatively long message which included only one but significant sentence citing the Philippines.

The sentence: “Pray, My children, pray for the Philippines, they will suffer through terrorism.”

That warning was issued just three months after the May 2016 presidential elections.

Terrorism? The word conjures up misled extremists with bombs and other destructive firepower. Through the five years since Our Lord’s warning, no terrorist attack has so far bothered our country in the magnitude that warrants divine warning. Or so it would seem...until the dictionary is consulted to remind ourselves of the definition of terrorism.

Dictionary.com defines it thus: “the unlawful use of violence or threats to intimidate or coerce a civilian population or government, with the goal of furthering political, social, or ideological objectives.”

Another definition: “A terrorist method of governing or of restraining a government.”

Indeed, prophecies being issued from Heaven through Catholic mystics of our days are believable. Through the recent years, Our Lord’s warning saw realization in flesh and blood of scores of people dead under the principle of “nanlaban.”

Our Lord Jesus’ message also covered some other prophecies now happening, as well as laments that Catholics would find familiar.

Said Jesus:

“What do I see from Heaven?

“A planet in agony, lacerated by the hand of man, whose task was to keep the planet in perfect condition ...

“I see the ravaging of nature. Trees have been and are eliminated without thinking of replacing them; water grows scarce in the earth; where water overflowed, it is lacking at this instant. During war they will fight for water, just like in instant they seek to take control of the oil.

“How many men serve in My Temples in the interests of gaining a little importance in society! but do not respect or love Me as I desire that those souls love Me.

“I see how My consecrated ones delegate to eucharistic ministers the functions which are expressly those of my priests; they do so because some do not serve Me with sufficient Faith. I am treated carelessly without My Consecrated ones being totally jealous of My Real Presence in the Eucharist. I see this and My Heart aches at such a serious act.

“I see lack of prayers among som of My consecrated ones; from this arises the deformation in the spirit that leads them to fall into despondency, into routine.

“Some sermons are poor, lacking My Word, some of these sermons lack the motivation and strength to wake up My People.

“My Church must remain in constant observance of the fulfillment of The Commandments. Without omitting them, It must maintain a balanced zeal for the fulfillment of how much the Commandments of Our Divine Will dictate.

“Unfortunately, some of My Consecrated ones have entered into politics, an act that influences them in being impartial and protectors of My Own.

“My Mandate for every Consecrated is to teach My Flock; to go in search of those who have strayed; to call sin, sin and evil, evil. Lukewarmness nauseates Me, it precipitates My children towards satan so that they fall into damnation.

“Freemasonry together with the illuminati and other sects have taken high-ranking positions within My Church, impoverishing the Truth that I want My People to know. These sects stand at key points within My house in order to divert the law that My Father sent to His people in the hands of Moses in order o be fulfilled in all times and places.

“Evil, disguised by falsehood, has introduced itself into My House, the smoke of satan has blinded some of My Consecrated ones, and they do not see how the demonic serpent cunningly creeps into My House, introducing the poison of evil among My representatives.

“Some of the theologians write papers about this difficult time, without describing the time.

“The time is each one of My children, the time is Humanity itself, since every generation defines how the time is in which it lives.

“This generation has broken out against everything divine, against My Most Holy Mother...this generation has voiced against Me. Thus is and will be the time in which it lives: calamities, diseases, natural disasters, great cataclysms, uprisings of men against men, the massacre of innocents, disrespect and lack of fulfillment of the Divine Law, of the Sacraments and other practices of piety.” (End of quote.)

Meanwhile, let me introduce another mystic, Valentina Papagna, a Slovenian who migrated to Australia in 1955. She has allegedly been receiving messages from Jesus Christ and our Blessed Mother since the death of her husband in 1988. I give her some importance as she reportedly has the full support of her spiritual director and parish priest Fr. Valeria Jenko OFM.

Last December 3, she wrote:

“Today during the Cenacle Rosary Prayers, as we were offering our petitions, our Lord Jesus appeared and said, ‘Valentina, My child, I want you to offer Me the whole world, and pray for it. I know that you can do that. All the prayers will help Me to save the world.

“‘Now the world is in total desolation and desperation, and they need My help.

“‘For the time being, I am willing to put My Judgment aside, and I bring forward My Mercy, to save the world. But I need your help to do all of this. I want you to spread My Holy Word and tell My people to pray.’”

“While our Lord was present in the church, and while He was giving Me this serious message, He suddenly raised me up high above the horizon.

“One moment, I was in the presence of our Lord, kneeling in the pew and praying, when suddenly, and in a flash, our Lord lifted me up, raised me high up, high above the horizon, above the clouds. Suddenly I could clearly see the world below me, covered by clouds.

“I was now somewhere in outer space, with our Lord Jesus standing in front of me, as I was kneeling before Him. He was wearing a beautiful, deep creamy-colored tunic. Our Lord’s expression was sad.

“At the same time, coming from far down below me, I could clearly hear the echo of the rosary prayers being recited by our rosary prayer group and rising up. I could hear the people responding. I could recognize their voices. The prayers were echoing up, into space so that our Lord could hear them. The prayers were being raised up to Heaven.

“I could now see how prayers, when they are sincere and from the heart, how they travel and echo throughout space.

“I was above the world and above the clouds, kneeling before our Lord.

“Our Lord was looking at the world below. He said, ‘I tell you, everywhere I look now, it is abomination and desolation and darkness. Most of it is caused by this horrible virus and the evil that is spread all over the world. People are in despair and are losing hope in their lives.’

“He was looking at me, concerned for the world, but at the same time, was smiling a little, a sign of hope for the world. He asked me, ‘Help Me, and together we can bring the light to the world and save it all.’

“Gently nodding His Head in a hopeful way, He said, “All this can be achieved through prayers.”

“He asked, ‘Can I count on you?’

“‘Can I?’ He asked again.

“‘Tell My children to take My message seriously. I bless you. Be at peace.’

“Then I suddenly found myself back in the church, kneeling in my pew with my prayer group, praying the Cenacle Rosary.

The next day, I was talking to our Lord, ‘Lord, I would like to tell everyone about this. How am I going to do this? How am I going to tell people to pray for the world?’

“Lord Jesus said, ‘I never do anything unless I warn My children before time.’

“Our Lord is always giving us a chance for things to change for the better. He wants to save the world, and He wants us to pray for the world very much.”
