ANGLICAN BISHOPS FIGHT POSSIBILITY OF FUTURE CATHOLIC MONARCH

Forty_Martyrs_of_England_and_Wales

Catholic Prophecy is abundant with predictions that in the last days the English will return to their Roman Catholic heritage...


"After desolation has reached its peak in England , peace will be restored and England will return to the Catholic faith with greater fervor than ever before." BARTHOLOMEW HOLZHAUSER

"Whole nations will come back to the [Catholic] Church and the face of the earth will be renewed. Russia, England and China will come into the Church." Anna-Maria Taigi (19th century)


Nevertheless, the infinitesimal and nearly impotent remaining Anglican Clergy are ready to fight this inevitable return to Rome by England...


The
Telegraph: "A Catholic monarch could put Church of England in peril, bishops warn. [Anglican] Bishops are preparing to fight Government plans to allow a Catholic to ascend the throne because they say it would put the Church of England’s position in peril.

The Bishop of Leicester, the Rt Rev Tim Stevens, who leads the 26 bishops who sit in the House of Lords, tells The Sunday Telegraph that David Cameron’s policy to end Britain’s 300-year-old succession laws risks overturning the Church’s constitutional role.

He argued that the Prime Minister’s plans to repeal the ban on the monarch being married to a Catholic posed a serious potential risk. Currently the Queen is required to take on the role of Supreme Governor of the Church of England — making it the established Church. But the bishops said that it would be impossible for a Catholic monarch to have that role.

If Mr Cameron’s reforms were passed it would be possible for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s firstborn child to marry a Catholic and still ascend the throne. If that monarch had a child, he or she would have to be brought up as a Catholic under the rules of the Roman Catholic Church.

Bishop Stevens, convener of the Lords Spiritual, said that they would vote against Mr Cameron’s measure to amend the Act of Settlement if Rome did not relax its rules. There is no sign of Rome doing so.

“If the heir to the throne is brought up as a Catholic, and therefore, under the present disciplines of the Roman Catholic Church, is not able to be in communion with the Church of England, it effectively renders a Catholic heir incapable of being the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, so clearly that’s a more complicated issue than it appears at first sight,” he said.

Bishop Stevens said that a change to the Act of Settlement with the potential to disestablish the Church of England would be something that bishops “would have to resist”.

The Act of Settlement was introduced in 1701 to secure the Protestant succession following the death of Mary II without any heirs and the likelihood that her husband, William III, would also die without an heir, which was what happened.

[The Bishop of Leicester) said careful negotiation with the Catholic hierarchy would be needed to raise a possibility that an heir with a Catholic parent could still be the Supreme Governor.

END TIMES PROPHECY OF ST FRANCIS OF ASSISSI


Francisbyelgreco
The Prophecy of St. Francis

Shortly before he died, St. Francis of Assisi called together his followers and warned them of the coming troubles, saying:

1. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase.

2. The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death.

3. Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.

4. There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God.

5. Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.

6. Those who preserve in their fervour and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and, persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth. but the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head, [Christ] these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to perish rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy.

7. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days JESUS CHRIST WILL SEND THEM NOT A TRUE PASTOR, BUT A DESTROYER."

(Except for breaking up the narrative into numbered paragraphs and adding bold print for emphasis, the prophecy is presented without any alteration, as given in the Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis Of Assisi, Washbourne, 1882, pp. 248-250)

THE MESSAGE OF OUR LADY OF LA SALETTE

lasalette
I am publishing the message of La Salette because it is so very relevant to our times and the state of the Church. Remember, this is a Church approved apparation which was given by the Blessed Virgin Mary to two children, Mélanie Calvat and Maximin Giraud, on September 19, 1846, while they were tending cattle on the mountain of La Salette, France. This is the testimony published by Melanie, the Shepherdess of La Salette with Imprimatur by Mgr. Bishop of Lecce.

"On the 18th of September (1846), the eve of the Holy Apparition of the Holy Virgin, I was alone, as usual, watching over my Master’s cows. Around eleven o’clock in the morning, I saw a small boy walking towards me. I was frightened at this, for it seemed to me that everyone ought to know that I avoided all kinds of company. This boy came up to me and said:

"Little girl, I’m coming with you, I’m from Corps too". At these words, the natural evil in me soon showed itself, and taking a few steps back, I told him: "I don’t want anybody around. I want to be alone." But the boy followed me, saying: "Go on, let me stay with you. My Master told me to come and watch over my cows together with yours. I’m from Corps."

I walked away from him, gesturing to him that I didn’t want anybody around, and when I was some distance away, I sat down on the grass. There, I used to talk with the little flowers of the Good Lord.

A moment later, I looked behind me, and there I found

BECOME AN APOSTLE OF THE END TIMES

St Louis de Montfort's True Devotion, CONSECRATION TO MARY, is a life altering book. The Catholic faith is completed in its fullest and richest fashion in this book for these last days.

As John the Baptist prepared the way for the first coming of Jesus; God has sent His Mother, the Queen of Prophets, in these last times as Prophetess...... Mary prepares the way for His second coming. Those souls who are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be victorious.

St Louis de Montfort states that the saints of the last days will be the greatest of all saints. They will surpass the other saints throughout history because they will have devotion to the Mother of God, which is the secret to true sanctity and holiness. Montfort also states: The souls who are richest in graces will be most assiduous in praying to our Blessed Lady and in having her always present as their perfect model for imitation and their powerful aid for help.

"These great [consecrated] souls, full of grace and zeal shall be chosen to match themselves against the enemies of God, who shall rage on all sides; and they shall be singularily devout to our Blessed Lady, illuminated by her light, strengthened with her nourishment, led by her spirit, supported by her arm and sheltered under her protection, so that they shall fight with one hand and build with the other."

"With one hand they shall fight, overthrow and crush the heretics with their heresies, the schismatics with their schisms, the idolators with their idolitries, and the sinners with their impieties. With their other hand they shall build the temple of the true Solomon and the mystical city of God, that is to say, the most holy Virgin, called by the Fathers "The Temple of Solomon" and the "City of God". By their words and examples they shall draw the whole world to true devotion to Mary. This shall bring upon them many enemies, but shall also bring many victories and much glory for God alone.

"This is what God revealed to St Vincent Ferrer...This city which men shall find at the end of the world to convert themselves in, and to satisfy the hunger they have for justice, is the most holy Virgin, who is called by the Holy Ghost the "City of God"
(Ps. 86) CONSECRATION TO MARY.

WILL THE UNITED STATES BECOME COMMUNIST?


fatima_children
Since Russia was never specifically consecrated in accordance with Our Lady of Fatima's request, the entire world including the United States, is at risk of adopting "Russia's errors". In fact, Sr. Lucia went so far as to specifically state that the United States is at risk of becoming Comminist. Sr Lucia's statement never seemed so relevant as it does during the current economic crisis and the Obama administration's concomitant power grab.

Here is an excerpt of an interview with Sr Lucia which was conducted by William Thomas Walsh, author of the book
Our Lady of Fatima. Father Manuel Rocha, a native of Portugal, was the assigned translator for Walsh and relates the following exchange:

Sr Lucia: ‘What Our Lady wants is that the Pope and all the bishops in the world shall Consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart on one special day. If this is done, She will convert Russia and there will be peace. If it is not done, the errors of Russia will spread through every country in the world.’”

Professor Walsh: “Does this mean, in your opinion, that every country, without exception, will be overcome by Communism?”

Sister Lucy: “YES!” (Our Lady of Fatima, 1947, page 226)


Professor Walsh: “And does that mean the United States of American too?”

Sister Lucy: “YES!”

SATAN'S GOAL: ABOLISH THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST EVIL--THE SACRIFICE OF THE MASS

mass

"And in half a week he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease" Daniel 9.27

Since the Resurrection of Jesus Christ the world has been heading for the ultimate clash between good and evil. It was the sacrifice of the Son of God himself that overcame the power of evil. It is no less ironic that when this Holy Sacrifice ceases to be recalled, the world will again be dominated by evil prior to His second coming.

"The devil has always managed to get rid of the Mass by means of the heretics, making them the precursors of the Antichrist who above all else, will manage to abolish, and in fact will succeed in abolishing, as punishment for the sins of men, the Holy Sacrifice of the altar, precisely as Daniel has predicted." St Alphonsus Liguori, "La Messa a l'Officio Strapazzati" in Opere Asctiche.

"It would be easier for the earth to carry on without the sun than without the Holy Mass." Blessed Padre Pio

"Man should tremble, the world should vibrate, all Heaven should be deeply moved when the Son of God appears on the altar in the hands of the priest." St. Francis of Assisi

"Mass badly celebrated is an enormous evil. Ah! it is not a matter of indifference how it is said! . . . I have had a great vision on the mystery of Holy Mass and I have seen that whatever good has existed since creation is owing to it." Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich

"[I]f only one priest offered the Unbloody Sacrifice as worthily and with the same sentiments as the Apostles, he could ward off all calamities from the Church." Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich

THE WICKED WILL NOT PREVAIL---A COMPLETE RESTORATION IS TO COME

D001_Novena_Closeup

The pro-death, pro-sodomy, anti-Christian party now possess power in America. During their reign they will enact laws that will rob Americans of their life and their God given liberties. But I take great comfort in the knowledge that the wicked will not prevail...

What follows are the words of Our Lady of Good Success to Mother Mary Anne of Jesus Torres who was praying in front of the Blessed Sacrament when suddenly the sanctuary light went out in Quito Ecuador, 1634.

"[A]t the end of the 19th century and for a large part of the 20th, various heresies will flourish on this earth which will have become a free republic. The precious light of the Faith will go out in souls because of the almost total moral corruption: in those times there will be great physical and moral calamities, in private and in public. The little number of souls keeping the Faith and practicing the virtues will undergo cruel and unspeakable sufferings; through their long drawn out martyrdom many will go to death because of the violence of their sufferings, and those will count as martyrs who gave their lives for Church and for country. To escape being enslaved by these heresies will call for great strength of will, constancy, courage and great trust in God, all of which are gifts from the merciful love of My Divine Son to those He will have chosen for the work of restoration. To put to the trial the faith and trust of these just souls, there will come moments when everything seems lost

CATHOLIC PROPHECIES: WATCH, PRAY, AND PREPARE!

Here are a couple of fairly interesting Catholic prophecies for your discernment about what is to come...

Dionysias of Luxemberg (1682)

"After the birth of Anti-Christ the people of the world will be very wicked and Godless. People of real virtue will be very scarce. Pastors in many places will neglect the service of God, and will live with women. Even the religious will crave for worldly things. The churches will be dreary and empty like deserted barns . . . at the time when Anti-Christ is about twenty years of age, the whole world will be without faith, subjects will be oppressed by rulers and others in authority. In every period of tribulation God aided His Church, and He will do it in the time before the coming of Anti-Christ. From the midst of His Church He will raise up a Christian ruler who will perform most remarkable deeds. With divine assistance, this ruler will not only lead erring souls back to the true faith but also deal a heavy blow to the foes of the empire, the Turks, take away Read More...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: PENANCE PENANCE PENANCE

FatimaPicture
The deed is done. A man who promises to do great evil has been elected President of the United States. It is estimated that 54% of Catholics voted for Barak Hussein Obama. In fact, Obama captured the 7 states where Catholics make up more than 30% of the population on Election Day. But wait!:

"Among Catholic voters who attend Mass weekly, McCain won majority support: 54- 45%. Among those who do not attend weekly Mass, the margin for Obama was an overwhelming 61[%]...Thus Obama drew his support from inactive Catholics. And unfortunately, most American Catholics are inactive." Catholic Culture

Another word for "inactive" is apostasized Catholics. The above findings are in keeping with the words of Fr John Hardon:
"ordinary Catholics will not survive this age." And the words of so many holy priests and saints that most Catholics will not be saved. We are living in the long prophesied age of apostasy:

"Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness Read More...

A SAINT SPEAKS: THERE CAN BE NO CHASTITY WITHOUT THE EUCHARIST


page0_blog_entry11_summary_1

Is there any wonder why our culture has become perverse and sex-obsessed when Christians reject and/or neglect the most powerful assistance to live out the Christian life--the Eucharist? Just for a moment, contemplate the percentage of human beings who believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist--I am certain, as you will be fter listening to the following podcast, that this figure correlates with those who are able to resist the world and live a truly chaste life, whether in marriage or as a single person.


Here is a little blessing for your listening pleasure-- Fr John Hardon's simple yet deep words about the Eucharist and chastity. The following podcast is approximately 26 minutes long but well worth your time. You can hear why he may become a saint. To listen:

U.K.: A PLAN TO MONITOR EVERY TEXT MESSAGE, PHONE CALL AND INTERNET VISIT

ftsurv
FROM the Belfast Telegraph (HT: STELLA LITTLE): "Today the Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, is expected to signal the Government's intention to press ahead with proposals to collect more details about people's phone, email and web-browsing habits as she warns that the terrorist threat to Britain is growing."

"Under the proposal, internet service providers and telecoms companies would hand over millions of phone and internet records to the Home Office, which would store them for at least 12 months so that the police and security services could access them. It is understood that more than £1bn has been earmarked for the database."

"The proposal emerged as part of plans to implement an EU directive developed after the 7 July bombings to bring uniformity to record-keeping. Since last October telecoms companies have been required to keep records of phone calls and text messages for 12 months. That requirement is to be extended to internet, email and voice-over-internet use and included in a Communications Data Bill."

Everything seems to be lining up in accordance with the prophecies of scripture and the saints. Terrorism and now the global economic crisis have provided our leaders with an unprecedented opportunity to centralize financial power and to keep watch over us. Nations are even taking an ownership interest in private banks.

According to St Malachi's prophecies there is to be only one more pope after Pope Benedict XVI...

"In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city (The Vatican) will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End."


If St Malachi's prophecies are accurate-- then time is very short because Pope Benedict will be 81 this year. We must watch, pray and offer penance to God.

ARE MANDATORY ABORTIONS ON THE HORIZON FOR THE WEST?

-1
Here is another fine article from Mr Frank M. Rega, S.F.O., author of St Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims. As Mr Rega points out St. Padre Pio defended the controversial encyclical, Humanae Vitae, praising its “lofty teachings” and “eternal truths.” But one aspect of Humane Vitae which is often overlooked today is its grim warning that governments might “impose” contraceptive methods on citizens. In the light of the Humanae Vitae’s other accurate predictions, are mandatory birth control and abortion on the horizon for America?

St. Padre Pio demonstrated the depth of his love and loyalty to the Church when he publicly praised and defended Pope Paul VI for his encyclical Humanae Vitae, “Of Human Life.” 1 Upon its release in the summer of 1968, a torrent of vilification and disobedience was unleashed upon the Pontiff from within the Church, as well as mockery and scorn from without. Such open rebellion against Peter’s successor was unprecedented, and yet he had done nothing more than his solemn duty to uphold the infallible, magisterial teaching of Catholicism against unnatural methods of birth control.

The likes of Fr. Hans Kung, Fr. Charles Curran, et. al., and the Canadian Bishops’ Winnipeg Statement, brazenly stood in opposition to the teachings of their own religion. Many did defend the document; but one great saint, a man

RUSSIA'S AGGRESSIVE EXPANSION DUE TO INSURMOUNTABLE POPULATION DECLINE

I have read a great deal on the recent Georgia crisis--but the obvious reason for Russia's expansionist aggression seems to be overlooked by the West. Russia is in the midst of an insurmountable population death spiral and nothing the Russian leaders have done internally is working. Taking back its former territories will, however, change the dynamics of its population crisis.

Consider this typical scene in modern day Russia: "A group of young professionals sitting around a dinner table in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk. The hosts for the evening were Roman Zhabko, 34, a computer network administrator, and his wife, Olga Zhabko, 28, who manages a small business. Like the majority of Russians, they're loyal to President Vladimir Putin; a poster of Mr. Putin is the only decoration on their living room walls..."

"Demographics is an acute problem in Russia, and it's discussed by everybody," Ms. Zhabko said as she put another dish of meats and cheeses on the table.

A MESSAGE FROM LA SALETTE TO YOU

"I make an urgent appeal to the earth. I call on the true disciples of the living God who reigns in Heaven; I call on the true followers of Christ made man, the only true Savior of men; I call on my children, the true faithful, those who have given themselves to me so that I may lead them to my divine Son.... Finally, I call on the apostles of the Last Days, the faithful disciples of Jesus Christ who have lived in scorn for the world and for themselves, in poverty and in humility, in union with God, in suffering unknown to the world. It is time they came out and filled the world with light. Go and reveal yourselves to be my cherished children. I am at your side and within you, provided that your faith is the light which shines upon you in these unhappy days. May your zeal make you famished for the glory and the honor of Jesus Christ. Fight, children of light, you, the few who can see. For now is the time of all times, the end of all ends." Our Lady to two young shepherds in La Salette, France. September 19, 1846.

THE POPE, ISLAM, AND CATHOLIC PROPHECY FOR OUR TIMES

pope_liar_77-1
"But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is ...Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at evening, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." Mark 13: 32-37

Pope Benedict has proven over the course of his brief pontificate that he does not shy away from the controversial for the sake of a false wordly peace. Prior to the recent baptism of Magdi Allam-- Osama bin Laden claimed in an audio recording that Islam will chastise the Pope and the European people for the publication of cartoons of Mohammed. I am certain that the recent baptism of Allam has solidified the position of Pope Benedict and the Church at the top of al qaeda's hit list.

"THIS IS BABEL"

CDI4
I will be on vacation until January 15. I will, however, be updating the Real Clear News sidebar while I am away.

We are all witnessing the growing persecution of the Church in what were once Christian nations. These nations are slowly taking on a fascist character that seeks to stamp out religion and religious expression. In Canada a so-called human rights commission is in hot pursuit of truth teller Mark Steyn for Islamophobia and Catholic Insight Magazine for homophobia. In Spain a Protestant is being investigated by the government for attempting to "cure" homosexuality while a Catholic cleric is likewise being investigated for comments that are seen as offending homosexuals.

The pace at which religious hatred is growing is alarming. But this was all prophesied by good and holy men and women throughout the centuries. They all hauntingly repeat that a great chastisement will occur due to the loss of the Faith. The Catholic Church in particular will have much to suffer. Islam is predicted to be used as one instrument of chastisement. But the enemies of Christ

CATHOLIC PROPHECY THROUGHOUT CENTURIES FORETELLS OF A MUSLIM INVASION INTO EUROPE IN END TIMES

islam_europe
Catholic prophecies about the last days have been consistent throughout the centuries. In fact the prophecies viewed on the whole are astonishingly consistent. A great many prophecies foretell the Muslim invasion of the European continent which is to occur due to the anarchy and godlessness in Europe.

I believe it is gravely important that we be aware of what has been foretold. So much of what we hear about Islam and its spread into Europe is political in nature. I am certain that a great many of you view this movement of Islam into Europe as more than simply a historical or a political event. But rather, recognize the spiritual significance of this occurrence in salvation history. The loss of faith and apostasy not only in the world, but also within Christianity subjects the West to a great chastisement. When a nation legalizes abortion and promotes artificial contraception, and when homosexuality enters God's Church you can be certain that He will not
