On October 13, 1884, Pope Leo XIII heard Satan ask God for 75-100 years to have dominion over mankind. According to Pope Leo XIII, Satan was granted the time to test mankind in unknown ways. Pope Leo fainted after he heard the conversation between God and Satan, and he personally composed the Saint Michael Prayer, which was said after every low Mass up to Vatican II in the mid 1960’s.
The problem many people have had with Pope Leo’s vision is, “What was the start date for the 100 years?” Was it the first Fatima apparition on May 13th? Was it the last Fatima apparition on October 13, 1917 with the Miracle of the Sun? Was it the July 13th 1917 Fatima apparition where Russia was mentioned for the first time? Why not the beginning of World War I? World War I began on July 28, 1914 and didn’t end until November 1918. Over one million died or were injured at the Battle of the Somme (Somme Offensive) over a period of four and a half months in 1916 separating itself as one of the bloodiest periods in world history. Is this a good day for the start date of Satan’s 100-year reign?
The world would recognize World War I as a more substantial event than three little illiterate children in a poor hamlet of Portugal receiving messages from the Mother of Jesus. However, the Lord is clear, “My ways are not your ways.”
Could the event of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia abdicating the throne of Russia on March 15, 1917 (after having a royal family in Russia for over 300 years) be the start date? This was two months before the first apparition of May 13th at Fatima. On March 16, 1917, Tsar Nicholas fled for his life since assuming the throne in 1894. The monarchy was overthrown with this act in March 1917. Could the October/November Revolution in 1917 be the start date of the 100-year reign? Maybe November 7, 1917 when Vladimir Lenin took control of Russia? To put in perspective how small numbers can effectuate change, there were only 10,500 card-carrying members of the communist party by mid-1917 that overtook a nation of approximately 150 million people. Lethargy has its consequences.
Could the Spanish Flu of 1918-1920, that infected 500 million people worldwide, that killed between 50-100 million people be the event?
Many Catholics point to 33 years after Pope Leo’s October 13, 1884 vision to the start of the Bolshevik Revolution in October 1917. Since Jesus walked the earth for 33 years, then it is plausible that this is the commencement date that begins the 100-year cycle? Does Heaven see things we do not on a supranational level operating with preternatural gifts? Is there a deeper meaning behind the date of 1917? Fatima as the cornerstone of 20th Century apparitions plays a role with the Red Dragon of atheistic communism and the Black Beast of Masonry.
CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART DELAYED
On June 17, 1689, Sister Margaret Mary Alacoque (Saint, 1647-1690) was asked by Our Lord to communicate to King Louis XIV of France to consecrate France to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for its protection. Several other things were asked which he did not do, including building a Basilica to the Sacred Heart in France. One hundred years later to the day on June 17, 1789, the monarchy of France fell in what was arguably one of the greatest events in world history ushering in a new age of intellectual enlightenment without God. On July 14, 1789, the symbol of French resistance took place with the storming of the Bastille. Liberty, equality & fraternity began a new time under godless secularism that spread throughout Europe and thus the rest of the world. France as the “Elder daughter of the Church” had not complied with a simple request for its own safety and welfare. The Sun King of France Louis XIV as the longest reigning monarch in European history did not respect a simple request. Much in the same way as France, the Blessed Mother asked for the Consecration of Russia by name at Fatima, and that was not done as asked in union with the bishops of the world.
While in Rianjo, Spain in August of 1931, Jesus communicated to Sister Lucia of Fatima that the failure of the Church would have dire consequences. The Lord said, “Make it known to My ministers, given that they follow the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of My requests, they will follow him into misfortune. “
King Louis XVI was executed by guillotine in 1793 bringing to an end over one thousand years of continuous monarchy in France. Before death, he attempted to consecrate France as was asked during the reign of Louis XIV, but it was too late. The Lord said to Sister Lucia concerning Russia, “They did not wish to heed my request! Like the King of France they will repent of it, and they will do it, but it will be late. Russia will already have spread its errors in the world. Provoking wars and persecutions against the Church. The Holy Father will have much to suffer.”
Could there be more to the one hundred year story on a deeper level than the obvious? Due to the ravages of World War I at its peak with carnage to the people of Europe, Pope Benedict XV asked for the Blessed Mother to intervene on May 5, 1917. The pope asked the people to pray a novena to Our Lady Queen of Peace to hear the cries of the people to end the war. Eight days later on May 13, 1917, the Blessed Mother made her first public apparition at Fatima, culminating with the Miracle of the Sun on October 13, 1917, the last apparition. There were an estimated 75,000 people present with the world press in attendance. What is generally not known is the dominance of Masonry in Portugal in particular, and Europe in general at this time. Masonry has been a dominant political and economic force hidden behind the curtain in the world for three hundred years. 2017 is the 300th anniversary of Freemasonry in its present form, and the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Masonry is Satan’s diabolical army or force on earth having rituals, laws, hierarchy, and customs for its members to battle against the forces of God.
OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS: QUITO, ECUADOR
The Church approved apparitions of Quito, Ecuador, under the title of Our Lady of Good Success, address the role of Masonry in the 20th Century. Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres (1563-1635) sailed from Spain to found a convent and promote a new order in Quito. Our Lord, the Blessed Mother, and the Archangels appeared to her and gave messages for her own edification and to the world. Three centuries after her death, her body was exhumed and found to be incorrupt. Mother Mariana said, “….I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th Century ….unbridled passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of customs (morals), because Satan will reign through the Masonic sects, targeting the children in particular to insure general corruption… then through the faith of the just a ‘complete restoration.’” Reading her messages is like reading the news over the last sixty years. We especially see today how viciously the culture war has taken its toll on marriage and the family. Who would believe years ago that today we would be having a battle over transgender bathrooms?
MAXIMILIAN KOLBE AND THE MILITIA IMMACULATA
On October 16, 1917, three days after the October 13th Miracle of the Sun, there was a young Polish seminarian in Rome by the name of Maximilian Maria Kolbe. He had called a meeting with three brother seminarians and three priests. That day through Rome and the Vatican, Masons in large numbers had marched saying they would overturn the Church. Many know this story, but what is not generally known is that Masons had written on the banners and placards, “Lucifer will rule the Vatican in 2017,” as they looked to overthrow the Church. They had given themselves 100 years to accomplish their goal.
On October 16, 1917, Kolbe wrote, “These men without God find themselves in a tragic situation. Such implacable hatred for the Church and the ambassadors of Christ on earth is not in the power of individual persons, but of a systematic activity stemming in the final analysis from Freemasonry. In particular, it aims to destroy the Catholic religion. Their decrees have been spread throughout the world, in different disguises. But with the same goal – religious indifference and weakening of moral forces, according to their basic principle — We will conquer the Catholic Church not by argumentation, but rather with moral corruption.”
The Militia Immaculata was formed that night, and neither Kolbe nor the others knew of the apparitions at Fatima. Evolving in the next few years was his magazine by the name of The Knights of the Immaculate, which had over one million in circulation and the largest friary in the world in Niepokalanow, Poland. It had over 700 friars with their own printing presses and the most modern means of communication for that time and enlisted the Blessed Mother as Mediatrix of Grace to overcome the evils in the world.
THE BEAST LIKE A LEOPARD & THE BEAST LIKE A LAMB
In message 405 to the Marian Movement of Priests on June 3, 1989, the Blessed Mother addresses the power of the Red Dragon calling it Marxist atheism. She says the Black Beast is Freemasonry. She says, “The Dragon manifests himself in the force of his power; the Black Beast, on the other hand, acts in the shadow, keeps out of sight, and hides himself in such a way as to enter in everywhere. He has the claws of a bear and the mouth of a lion, because he works everywhere with cunning and with the means of social communication, that is to say, through propaganda. The seven heads indicate the various masonic lodges, which act everywhere in a subtle and dangerous way.
The Black Beast has ten horns and, on the horns, ten crowns, which are signs of dominion and royalty. Masonry rules and governs throughout the whole world by means of the ten horns. The horn, in the biblical world, has always been an instrument of amplification, a way of making one’s voice better heard, a strong means of communication.
The task of the Black Beast, namely of Masonry, is that of fighting, in a subtle way, but tenaciously, to obstruct souls from traveling, along this way, pointed out by the Father and the Son and lighted by the gifts of the Spirit. …The aim of Masonry is not to deny God, but to blaspheme Him. If the Lord has communicated his Law with the Ten Commandments, Freemasonry, spreads everywhere, through the power of its ten horns, a law completely opposed to that of God.”
Sister Lucia of Fatima said that the final battle for mankind would be over issues relating to marriage and family, and how Satan was on a rampage to destroy both. In the recent past, we have witnessed the collapse of family life, rampant divorce, state control over children, LGBT acceptance, and morally corrupting doctrine.
In message 406 to the Marian Movement of Priests, the Blessed Mother addresses at great length (nearly five pages) the Beast Like a Lamb — ecclesiastical Freemasonry. She states, “Above all, as Mother, I have wanted to warn you of the grave dangers which threaten the Church today, because of the many and diabolical attacks which are being carried out against it to destroy it. The black beast like a leopard indicates Freemasonry; the beast like the two horns indicates Freemasonry infiltrated into the interior of the Church, that is to say, ecclesiastical Masonry, which has spread especially among members of the hierarchy. This masonic infiltration in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church. If the task of Masonry is to lead souls to perdition, bringing them to the worship of false divinities, the task of ecclesiastical Masonry on the other hand is that of destroying Christ and His Church, building a new idol, namely a false Christ and a false church. …The aim of ecclesiastical Masonry is that of justifying sin, of presenting it no longer as an evil but as something good and of value. …The beast with the two horns like a lamb seeks to destroy the mystical Christ, which is the Church.”
The Blessed Mother has often referred to Masonry as ‘the Synagogue of Satan’ to the Marian Movement of Priests. Our Lady addresses in message 456 how it was in her name that the Turks (Ottoman Empire in 1529) “were defeated when they laid siege to the city of Vienna as it threatened the Christian world even though they were far superior in strength and they felt their victory was assured.” She likewise says in the same message it was in her name that Marxist communism oppressed so many people in the world and was defeated. She says, “Not because of political movements or persons, but through my personal intervention…”
Then She says, “It will again be in the name of Mary that I will bring to completion my work with the defeat of Masonry, of every diabolical force…and thus be purified and completely renewed, with the triumph of the Immaculate Heart in the world.”
We know the Battle of Lepanto had similar promises as the Battle Vienna with Heavenly intervention to save the Christian world even though they were outmanned and outgunned. Considering every diabolical force in the world, the Blessed Mother does not say her next target is China, Russia, the Persian Gulf, the Islamic invasion of Europe and the America’s, North Korea, immigration, unbridled capitalism, atheistic communism, the creep of godless socialism, state control from cradle to grave, or any other ‘ism.’ Our Lady specifically says Masonry. The Blessed Mother says that before a renewal takes place, Masonry must be defeated, as it is a force of government on earth.
As the Daughter of the Father, the Mother of the Son, and the Spouse of the Holy Spirit, the Blessed Mother is on another supernatural level than our logical and rational thinking. She is Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate of all mankind. So, if Masonry is as powerful as the Queen of Heaven and Earth says, was October 16, 1917, the beginning of the 100-year reign of Satan? Time will tell.
The United States officially entered World War I on April 6, 1917. President Woodrow Wilson’s campaign platform slogan was, “He Kept Us Out Of War.” It is interesting to note that on April 6, 2017 the United Sates fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian Air Force Base Russia had been using. Is this the start of a much bigger conflagration?
Heaven has told us repeatedly the Church would go through a dark night. Heaven has a plan, and they are asking for our participation in that plan for the salvation of mankind. The multiplicity of apparition sites around the world primarily asks people for a return to the faith through the sacraments.
The Blessed Mother has promised a triumph, and She said at Fatima, “…in the end my Immaculate Heart will Triumph.”
