ABOARD the homebound papal plane from Greece, Pope Francis announced plans to visit Moscow, the capital of Russia, in the near future.
Shivers ran down my spine as I read it. All the prophecies signaling the “end times” are coming together, especially those told years ago by the Blessed Mother during her Garabandal, Spain apparitions (1961-65). These apparitions were confirmed as authentic by St. Padre Pio, St. Teresa of Calcutta, and, albeit indirectly, St. Pope Paul VI who were contemporaries.
As far as I know, never has Heaven given us so many hints on when a major prophecy is to occur.
After having name-dropped three saints to buttress Garabandal's credibility, where does Pope Francis’ planned sortie to Moscow fit in?
In his book Garabandal, Finger of God, author Albrecht Weber, a German who was involved with Garabandal since the early years (he is now deceased and buried in Garabandal), quoted visionary Conchita as having said: “The Pope will go to Russia, to Moscow. As soon as he returns to the Vatican, hostilities will break out in different parts of Europe.”
On June 19, 1962, the seers of Garabandal were given a vision of the tribulations to follow, making them scream in fear for several minutes. When asked the Blessed Mother about it, she replied that communism, led by Russia, would unexpectedly take over many parts of democratic countries where Christians would be persecuted. At the height of such an event, God would send to the whole world the Great Warning which will simultaneously penetrate, in the manner of the Holy Spirit, the consciences of each living person on earth, both believers and unbelievers.
And we know by Pope Francis’ words that his travel to Russia, though still undated, would be soon, as he said: “I am ready to go to Moscow, for a dialogue with a brother.” He was referring to Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox church.
Francis told reporters on board his plane returning from a trip to Greece that the meeting with Kirill was on a “horizon that is not far”.
Bishop Hilarion, the head of the Russian church’s department for external relations, said he would meet with Francis sometime between December 20 and the end of the year for the planned visit.
Another hint from seer Conchita was her statement that the prophecies of Garabandal would begin to unfold after a “Vatican synod.”
Conchita’s statement on the synod was also from the Blessed Mother and there seems to be no doubt that the reference to the synod initiated recently by Pope Francis.
On October 10, 2021, the Pope announced a two-year project for the Catholic Church called “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission.” This synod will run from 2021 to 2023.
This was confirmed by Mother Nieves who interviewed Conchita on this. The seer, who was then 12 years old, had related to her aunt what the Blessed Mother said about the synod that would precede the Warning, stressing that the Mother of God did not refer to a council, but to a synod.
And then finally (?), there the hint from the last “three popes” which actually numbered four, also according to Conchita as she quoted the Blessed Mother.
Conchita said the Blessed Mother had cited three more popes before the “end times” (the visionaries also stressed they were not referring to the end of the world), but clarified another pope was not counted because of his very short reign. The latter, undoubtedly, referred to Pope John Paul I who died 33 days after assuming the papacy.
Conchita made the statement after hearing the church bells ring in Garabandal, to announce the death of Pope John XXIII. Counted thus are popes John Paul VI, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI.
Where does Pope Francis fall in regard to the count?
There are many theories trying to find him in the puzzle of the Apocalypse. But I join those who see him in the light of what the Blessed Mother had said about the end times commencing after the three popes. The conclusion: we are in the end times. To ignore the signs- pandemic and historic natural disasters, among other phenomena- would be folly.
These hints from Garabandal tell us of the nearing prophesied major events: the Warning, the Miracle, and the Chastisement. (I had shared in this space many quotes on these, particularly the Warning.)
The explosion of credible Catholic mystics telling of dire prophecies that happen even within a matter of days is already a sign- Heaven is in a rush to save souls amid declarations that the antichrist is on the rise.
Even way back in 1918. Our Lord Jesus Christ had already been explicit about our times. That year, He told Blessed Luisa Picarretta as follows:
“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...”
Let us truly convert. NOW. God bless us all.
