Prophecies By Visionaries Who Foresaw Today’s Crisis in the Church

There have been many chosen visionaries who over preceeding centuries have forewarned us of the great turmoil and betrayals we would suffer in the Catholic Church. Are we seeing these terrible prophecies beginning to unravell in our own times today? The purpose of those heavenly warnings given long ago was to prepare us to remain in God’s good grace, steadfast and strong in the face of a diabolical onslaught. The prophecies given by Our Lady of Good Success at Quito from 1594 to 1634 to Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres;  those at La Salette in 1846 to Melanie and Maximin;  the vision of Pope Leo XIII in 1884 that inspired him to write the prayer for protection to St Michael Archangel;  the messages and secrets from Our Lady at Fatima to Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta in 1917;  and finally, the prophetical messages in 1973 from Our Lady to Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa at Akita are all well known. They are prophecies recognised as authentic by the Catholic Church, but how few of her children have heeded them!

But there have been other warnings too, other prophecies given to trustworthy members of the Church in recent times that are less well known. Can we not see how they all tie in together? Let us look at just a few of them…


This is the horrifying prophecy of Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1895-1979) about the condition of the Church at the time of the anti-Christ:

“[Satan] will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the [Catholic] Church … It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.”

We are living in the days of the Apocalypse, the last days of our era. The two great forces – the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the anti-Christ – are beginning to draw battle lines for the catastrophic contest.

The False prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit Church.

Christ’s Church the Catholic Church will be one; and the false Prophet will create the other.

The False Church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches and religions, forming some type of global association.

A world parliament of Churches. It will be emptied of all Divine content, it will be the mystical body of the anti-christ. The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot, and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from our Bishops.

The Antichrist will not be so called; otherwise he would have no followers. He will not wear red tights, nor vomit sulphur, nor carry a trident nor wave an arrowed tail as Mephistopheles in Faust. This masquerade has helped the Devil convince men that he does not exist. When no man recognizes, the more power he exercises. God has defined Himself as “I am Who am,” and the Devil as “I am who am not.”

Nowhere in Sacred Scripture do we find warrant for the popular myth of the Devil as a buffoon who is dressed like the first “red.” Rather is he described as an angel fallen from heaven, as “the Prince of this world,” whose business it is to tell us that there is no other world. His logic is simple: if there is no heaven there is no hell; if there is no hell, then there is no sin; if there is no sin, then there is no judge, and if there is no judgment then evil is good and good is evil. But above all these descriptions, Our Lord tells us that he will be so much like Himself that he would deceive even the elect–and certainly no devil ever seen in picture books could deceive even the elect. How will he come in this new age to win followers to his religion?

The pre-Communist Russian belief is that he will come disguised as the Great Humanitarian; he will talk peace, prosperity and plenty not as means to lead us to God, but as ends in themselves.

The third temptation in which Satan asked Christ to adore him and all the kingdoms of the world would be His, will become the temptation to have a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religion–one that renders unto Caesar even the things that are God’s.

In the midst of all his seeming love for humanity and his glib talk of freedom and equality, he will have one great secret which he will tell to no one: he will not believe in God. Because his religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ …

But the twentieth century will join the counterchurch because it claims to be infallible when its visible head speaks ex cathedra from Moscow on the subject of economics and politics, and as chief shepherd of world communism.” (Fulton J. Sheen, Communism and the Conscience of the West)


Father Michael Scanlan’s 1976 Prophecy and the Events of 2020


Article main image

When leaders of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal heard Franciscan Father Michael Scanlan, the president of Franciscan University of Steubenville, deliver a prophecy in 1976 about a time of lawlessness and shuttered churches, no one imagined such a scenario occurring soon — or ever.

“We didn’t dismiss it, but we kind of put it to the side,” Ralph Martin said. Now, 44 years later, the message has struck home, as the seemingly extreme events it cited are happening.

Since discovering the prophecy while doing research for a new book, Martin, the president of Renewal Ministries, has sought to circulate the message and provide commentary on it — not just because it refers to current developments, but because it offers direction about how to respond to such a time as this.

“There’s some real guidance in it and some real hope in it, because, obviously, the Lord knew this was going to happen 44 years ago and he wanted to prepare us.”

Although the prophecy speaks forebodingly of lawlessness and churches with bars across the doors, it does so in the context of asking listeners if they are willing to depend on God alone: “Are you willing to see no law, no order, no protection for you except that which I myself will give you? … Are you willing to see no country — no country to call your own except those I give you as my body? … Are you ready to base your life only on me and not on any particular structure?”

The Gift of Prophecy

Those who, like Father Scanlan, who died in 2017, speak such messages are believed to have the gift of prophecy, as described in the New Testament Book of Ephesians, Martin said. This gift and others are given for the building up of the Church, he continued, and, although associated with the Charismatic Renewal movement, they are supposed to be part of the normal life of Catholics.

Martin has given prophecies, as well, including one in 1975: “Days of darkness are coming on the world, days of tribulation. … Buildings that are now standing will not be standing. Supports that are there for my people now will not be there.”

However, Martin said he considers Father Scanlan’s message to be more specific in its references to the crime and chaos that many Americans are seeing on their streets in the wake of the death of George Floyd and in the mention of churches here and in other countries being closed because of the coronavirus. Martin said the references in the prophecy to dependence on the institutions of schools and parishes also are significant, as dioceses across the country struggle financially.

But he said there are important lessons to be learned as Catholics and others experience the events cited in Father Scanlan’s prophecy. He said during the coronavirus shutdown, when his parish was having online Masses, his pastor pointed out the four ways Christ is present: in the Eucharist, in the person of the priest, in the word of God and in our souls.

When the first two aren’t available, Martin said, Catholics can develop an understanding of and appreciation for the other two. “Those are important things we could learn during this time, but a lot of us haven’t learned it yet. We’re so dependent on the structures of the church building that it will be hard if those are taken away again.”

Resonant Response


This prophecy was given by Our Lady at Garabandal (Spain):

Many Cardinals, Bishops and Priests are on the road to perdition and taking many souls with them. Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist.”

This message was so shocking coming at the time of the Second Vatican Council (i.e., before the destructive changes were made), that there were many in the Church who tried to discredit the apparitions. And yet it was not long afterwards that the sex scandals by homosexual clerical infiltrators started coming to light. Together with the post-V2 liturgical changes, greatly weakened catechesis and abandonment of much of the Church’s prior pious devotions and practices, especially Marian devotion, people started to lose their Faith. This tragedy drove many to leave the Church, thus appearing to fulfill Our Lady’s warnings of the false shepherds leading their flocks astray!

We are still waiting for the promised Warning (worldwide enlightment of consciences) and the following great Miracle that is to take place at Garabandal.

Conchita González, the main visionary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Garabandal between 1961-1965, was asked on May 19, 2020, to offer some words of advice to all of us in these troubling times. Here are her words:

“God is detaching us from the securities of this world. In the silence of the Church or in our house, we are now able to make an examination of conscience so we can clean what prevents us from hearing the Voice of God clearly. With sincerity we can ask God to tell us what He wants of us today, and continue to do that every day. And spend as much time as possible with God at church or somewhere in your home or where you find the silence. He is all we need.”

    Thank you, Kathleen.
    I just recommended Abp Fulton Sheen to my grandson. He wants more to read, to digest, to understand about the Church.
    I fear we are in tumultuous times. Dr Marshall is a daily rock. He is preparing us. And yes, it looks like martyrdom for many is on the horizon. But it won’t be the weak bishops or most priests, it will be us if we so choose.




  3. kathleen says:

    Thanks Mary. Ven. Fulton Sheen has left us a very full treasure store of great spiritual insights. It’s wonderful that your grandson has discovered him. God bless.


  4. Thank you Kathleen… for this comprehensive overview of a good portion of the history and revelation of the mainly current time and what to me has been an obvious ratcheting up or escalation of the spiritual warfare that is fast approaching its crescendo. I used to think I should stifle myself because who am I that I would know more than the so called experts and especially the clergy! But, now not out of any arrogance or disrespect I do speak my mind knowing that it’s now imperative to do so as our good institutions are crumbling before our eyes like never before and the human populations have moved toward secularism or designer religion and what many call spirituality which has nothing to do with Jesus Christ and all to do with being one’s own guide and even godly being, true blaspheme before God. Many people have gone over the top or off the rails without a doubt and if this hasn’t been the time frame of the great apostasy then I must be hallucinating. I’ve had some things happen to me over the last dozen years or so that I should have seen coming, and wonder if I hadn’t been so sure of myself or nonchalant maybe I could have avoided these very difficult and painful circumstances., then again perhaps I’m falling right in line with being where and doing what God wants me to, I can only hope. But, now I see that it would have been mostly inevitable because many individuals other humans that were agents of my meltdown or actually instigated what we could classify as fascist attacks upon me, the most life altering and devastating to me personally occurring on North American Martyrs Day of the Roman Catholic Church, were eight “Jesuit missionaries from Sainte-Marie among the Hurons. They were ritually tortured and killed on various dates in the mid-17th century in Canada, in what is now southern Ontario, and in upstate New York, during the warfare between the Iroquois and the Huron.” The celebrated feast day for these saints here in the US is “October 19 under the title of “John de Brébeuf and Isaac Jogues, Priests, and Companions, Martyrs,” (wikipedia) was the very day my life was attacked by highly partisan and diabolical persons within a network of evil, and I had no foreknowledge of these historical facts not even the Feast Day until after this attack upon me, but not until while one day at a Catholic Church speaking with a very devout Consecrated Woman who I had very interestingly met at the Church at the school office because of one phone call out of the blue; and she told me after my explanation of what I was going though that it happened on this important day and for a good reason that will become more apparent perhaps in the future when God wants you to know more. And, I should add one of these persons who was involved in a small cluster of these nefarious persons was a Catholic Minister, so then the light bulb lit up finally that things are really out of control in more ways than one and who can be trusted anymore I wondered! To cap this off was the fact that my exacting explication of these things in a letter to the Pope a few years ago which I sent precisely to the address I needed to after I verified it with a priest I know and can trust so very well enough to know I sent it properly and was verified by the carrier, but, yet this letter arrived and was not even acknowledged in any way, which was the capstone to all the events or experiences I had suffered through and the realization that the sitting Pope is not who we were thinking he is several years ago when he put on a good show. Just like Obama the first illegitimate president and great liar has multitudes of people fooled, so too does Francis. My recent painful experience over that Dove suffering while in my care shifted suddenly a couple of days ago to the horror of which I wrote a blog posting, a reblog, then another following it which explain what I know God wanted me to see and speak out about it, and hopefully by my doing so it will make a fraction of difference to others. My main point is that these things I became aware of and wrote of further crystallize now that like the Dove many innocent Unborn and adults are going to suffer horribly, especially under some of the most diabolical persons now on this earth who conspire to be world tyrants over the masses. I see evil in the faces and eyes of some very big names around the world and they are in cahoots, we can see it plain as day. Someone said yesterday on one of my blogs I’m being too hard on myself, and as I figure, in her way tying to be helpful to me, but, she like many persons these days think; they say come on what can we really do about all this, so let’s just let our hair down and chill out and it’s not in our hands. In other words I know I was guilty of this same outlook at times to rationalize that as long as I’m not a bad criminal what do I have to worry about, I’m going to be given safe passage to heaven if I just mind my business and say a few prayers. The old be Luke Warm way! The old going along to get along which allowed Hitler to rise to power the way he did and look at the results. Hannah Arendt had written as you know very concisely about how evil takes persons over incrementally and slowly whole societies until as she put it, they are all at the “altar of obedience” to it. This is happening again in these times only with AI and this entire digital tie-in to all earthly systems the time is as ripe as it will ever be to have a global takeover occur. I say it’s begun and we humans will not stop what is coming and we should know that the only one who can is God Almighty and He will, but, not until certain pieces of the puzzle fall into place and His word is fulfilled, allowing as many souls that want to be saved to have full opportunity for that to happen. We of faith know from Holy Scriptures that nobody will know the appointed time but the writing will be on the wall and there will be ample signs that it’s time to prepare like never before in earnest with a contrite heart, because, firstly Romans 3:10-12 ESV As it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”, and I certainly can be off by a few years or even few dozen but I sense from all I’ve experienced and what I’m reading in a variety of ways that there is very little time now. I’m sure you and some others in this tumultuous world have a much better confirmation of these concerns than I could ever have, but, I do have some valuable insight at least. I want to share a portion of what I just said to a blogger last night who thought I’m being too hard on myself and I know I haven’t been hard enough, that was the problem perhaps overall. I’ll also include a couple of links to the two most recent personally revelatory articles I wrote over the last week and now yours is confirmation to me, all of which I know is a meaning shift or tie-in to the poor Mourning Dove’s suffering demise in a special insightful way; here is what I said last night: “people don’t like to hear people like me talk harsh reality, and, want to concoct their own version or designer religion or philosophy of life, thinking that I’ll just kind of go along to get along and do my thing as long as I’m not hurting anyone I should be good to get through some pearly gate; ah-ah not so easy; but sorry folks it is what it is! I got poked a few times too many by sinister, bad, ugly, evil people to now not see, what I see wrong here! It’s tragically flawed and I know saying this can piss people off, because they don’t want to face that truth or can’t! I can, and will. I can learn all the lessons I want to cram into a day, every day, but it won’t buy me another minute of time on this God forsaken hell ride! I learned even from the innocent Dove suffering and me looking at the aftermath knowing that we are that Dove too! Jesus Christ told us straight out if you love your life in this world then you aren’t going to heaven. You need to say I don’t like my life being in this place, messed up place, it’s not heaven or the Holy Place where God is, and not even close; because I know there is the much better place to be that is more real than this, and more than I could ever imagine; so it’s like cutting the cord, and relinquishing all that is lost and a forgone conclusion, and to then not live for this world, but to live for what is beyond this existence! In other words I could be a billionaire and live for this world in spades doing and seeing it all and giving it my all, but, that won’t mean diddly-squat when this shell I’m in bites the dust and it will in one unbelievable moment! So, then all that fantastic stuff I did here and invested all my energies and psyche into was the wrong things to invest in, garbage in and garbage out! This is a losing proposition and thinking that I can keep picking up pieces and move on to some great ACHIEVEMENT is a fool’s errand! People are totally helpless and powerless to alter the course of things in any significant way, and, it’s only possible with Jesus Christ, who told us all of this already (added note) “especially on that cross!” As I say, some have high confidence and belief in that; and many or even most today give lip service and talk poppycock, there is no middle ground or lukewarm territory that will cut the mustard when we are dead, nothing else will do, except Jesus Christ, who is God Almighty, PERIOD! We’re in a constant state of conflict here, and not going to ever come close to bliss! And,, I want BLISS, Eternally! If not then this life wasn’t worth JACK! It isn’t here and not even close; no cigar for this guy here! Jesus showed us all of this and some see and believe, and others do not. Simple game plan, this is a short hop living here, it’s over before we know it! I’m focused on the Good the VERY good and it’s not here dear! I hope you get my meaning, and, know I say my mind always! This world here and now is never going to deceive this character. When I was younger I heard old timers say “all that glitters is not gold,” but, then I said yea I hear ya and just went off letting the world titillate and mesmerize me into my own self-imposed delusion, while ignoring the stark realities of what I should be doing over what I was doing! Basically, wasted a lot of time, and, sure I got the job done and then some, or accomplished certain duties and survived, but, at the end of the day where will that ultimately place me or get me to? I’m too much of a realist for most people to handle, so don’t feel bad if you want to hit me upside the head, its par for the course with me! Hasta La Vista Baby! I used to do a good Arnold and a Sly Stallone, but they could break me like a pretzel, I was a more silly side kick or Dana Carvy Clown. Maybe I missed the boat and should have joined the Circus! Hahahahaha!
    Kathleen I’m sorry for this so long comment and this is the very reason I typically would rebog I do this all the time, but, I decided I may still very well reblog too, but, because using both paths would be best to perhaps spread this out to as many eyes that can see it to help them know that this lowly sinner is pleading with you all, as I just started to cry now, to please get wise to what is happening and that time is running out; you must work to save your immortal souls from what is coming and may God in heaven through our Lord Savior and Redeemer who I once saw in a vision decades ago with these very words “Thy Lord Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ” spelling out who and what He is, that were suspended in thin air around him as He was looking at me with his hands palms up greeting me, and I’m crying hard now so I’ll go. Thank you and God bless you. Amen.
    Brother in Christ Jesus,

    In my opinion, prophecies are very important for the understanding of the present. This seems contradictory, but not when such prophecies are being fulfilled in the present moment.
    About Father Michael Scanlan’s prophecy, it is surprising. I believe it is true, but why has it been forgotten for so long?
    There’s an interesting comment about him. Look!

    Ralph Martin – Fr. Michael Scanlan’s Amazing Prophecy An Urgent Message for Today

    Concerning the Antichrist, perhaps his manifestation is near.
    Some people say that he will only manifest himself after Benedict XVI’s death and that Benedict XVI is the one who prevents his manifestation (cf. 2 Thessalonians 2:6)


  6. kathleen says:

    Phew, yes that was a very long comment Lawrence 😉 but I have to say that I agree with everything you say. We are living in terrible and evil times which are worsening daily. You’re right: anyone who denies that this is the start of the great apostasy must surely be “hallucinating”. And things are going to get worse, much worse. Those who today rampage along our streets screaming BLM’s screed and destroying public property, Christian religious symbols, etc. will soon be turning their violence against us, for all who do not go along with their atheistic, Marxist cultural revolution. (Did the disastrous Chinese Cultural Revolution teach these idiots nothing?)

    But no matter how much evil and treachery we see around us, and no matter what unimaginable suffering is in store for us, we must NEVER give in to despair.

    We are simply pilgrims here on Earth, each man and wonman with their own unique cross to carry for the journey towards God. There are no shortcuts. If we throw down our cross to take the easy road (something you have clearly not done) we will never reach our destination. So like the saints, Lawrence, take joy in your cross. This life is fleeting, as you say. Our home is Heaven for all eternity… something so many even in the Church seem to have forgotten these days, so keen are they to remain popular with the public, and so in love with earthly cares have they become. What a tragedy!

    If one day we have to undergo martyrdom by refusing to deny Our Glorious Faith, may Our Blessed Lord, the Blessed Mother and all the angels and saints give us the strength to not waver *. Yes, the holy Christian martyrs of Iraq, Syria, Nigeria have been mighty witnesses for Christ. May we try to imitate them if it ever comes to that. Nothing else matters but to remain close to Christ, faithful Catholics.

    * I say this because I am a terrible coward for physical suffering. I’d need hordes of mighty angels to give me courage.

    Before this comment disappears, as did my first reply to you on ‘The Ebbing of Truth’ article, as I told you a few days ago (though you might have missed it) I won’t say more for now.

    Goodnight and God bless you.

  7. Hi Kathleen! Yes I know I get long winded in person or even texting messages, 😉 I was warned by my priest friend to keep essays to one page and emails short and sweet otherwise I will lose their attention as most people don’t have the time or want to take it and if they see pages of text they will most likely pass over it. That said first of all thank you for this humble but exceedingly powerful message back to me. I want to start with what you mention at the end here that your previous message disappeared. Are you saying that you’re being censured here? Let me know anything you can about this and if you need to hold back then I will understand. I do list an email address so if that is ever needed as a more direct link know that it’s available to you. I stopped by a retired police officer’s home today to ask him about something and I got on the subject of social media and my blogging. He answered a few thoughts I was mulling over, especially because I didn’t want to be too involved with the social media and never signed up for Facebook and the others, only email and this Word Press because I thought it would motivate me to write more and in the steady practice or discipline of doing that maybe i would get more determined to finish writing a novel I started decades ago but that original idea dovetails more with my actual life experiences over the last 15 years which would make it more of a semi-documentary fiction. But, then I got thinking and like i said even talked to this cop friend because he is very perceptive and analytical and one of only a few people I know on a close enough and trustworthy level another is a priest I’ve known through this period of years and over the last several had hours on end conversation with him that was helpful that he would allow me to spill my guts about a lot that happened to me. This cop isn’t to that level but I know he is a good family man and Christian as well says it like it is and when I told him how I’ve gotten perturbed lately with some contacts and people in general on my Blog he said it’s true you don’t really know anyone in those circumstances and many of them do it for attention or an ego boost and whatever and I told him I didn’t intend on making it any game i only wanted to explore my writing ability and get a little feedback or even make a few contacts if possible. I told him i find there are too many people out there that are two-faced and are just playing a game and he agreed as he has Facebook and uses it for a photography hobby that has become a little business now, even a cruise line saw one of his photos he took when on a cruise with his wife last year and they approached him to purchase the rights to use the image. He asked me why am i blogging what is it doing for me and why spend all that time on it if you’re even getting annoyed with some people and most are just looking for praise. Then I told him that’s what’s been on my mind as to should I continue and if so the only reason i see that would make sense is it was doing some good for God and I would be making a difference in this world in saving souls, even if a tiny bit it would make sense to do that. He agreed and said if you’re going to continue blogging make a Christian blog and stick with that and not all this political or all these other things I’m writing about because it doesn’t matter and nobody cares. I agree with that in concept especially because how bad the world has gotten and is going to get for sure the way things are going now. The only thing that makes sense if I’m going spend countless hours online or writing for an online platform doing something that inspired or helps others who need to turn from sin and listen to God who wants to save as many of we doomed souls as He can if we will only listen to Him then He will be there for us and not let go to those who believe and will try their best to do His will in our short lives on earth. So I’m thinking perhaps that is the only reason to stay involved here and perhaps a few people like you I made contact with even if I did no more blogging I would like the social connection at least there because there are of course some genuine people out there like I know you are and I believe I am, so I just want to do what God wills.
    Speaking to this lawlessness and violence it can’t be a good sign obviously that our once fairly stable nation here is coming apart at the seems like others around the globe and I know the agenda is behind this which all ties-in to the antichrist and Satan’s plans to pull as many souls into hell as he can. I see myself as an ok guy; and when I was very young I was always attentive to my younger siblings or other younger kids in the neighborhood trying to advise and watch out for them as my grandmother told me to do for my younger sisters and set a good example which I always did. But, as I got older I let the ways of the world jade or corrupt me a bit and never was a party animal or any such fool but I allowed my mind and time to be squandered at times figuring I worked hard to acquire a home and some things so I can just goof off if I want but that was not right now as I look back in my eyes. Then i get the notion that if i were to find ways to get others not to do that or even be an active agent for God reaching people with my communication and down to earth skills to get some of them to stop being confused or not doing what God requires of us if we want to make it to Paradise for eternity. Then, I think about the story of Emily Rose, Anneliese Michel, of how she a good young lady did so much good allowing her life to be an instrument for god and suffer as she did so her story would convey and inspire faith to others so that they might be saved and she chose to serve god in that way when given the option to be free of the painful martyrdom and great sacrifice or carry her special cross to serve the Lord God.
    I see how now the world is much worse since her story occurred and I would think the more people that can offer themselves to the Lord and be what He sees best for them to do and work in the saving of souls that there isn’t anything more important than that we fallen simple humans can do. You speak about not giving in to despair and i agree as well that Emily Rose didn’t in the end she trusted God’s plan and allowed herself to be an instrument of God. Also I pray for you that this cowardice you speak of toward pain is an exaggeration and that you are the strong good soul i picture you to be Kathleen and if you need more courage that God will deliver it all to you when the time comes that you need it! And many of God angles will be al the mighty army you need to protect and deliver you to God’s ultimate will for you.
    Getting back to the violence that is occurring I don’t see an exit from it and only an increase as we move forward with so many pagan, Marxist and just plain godless people growing in numbers and being demonically influences or worse. The problem now over past communist revolutions or other violent times is this whole AI and digital world that has sprung up basically overnight coupled with the destructive capabilities of the human race with so must instability which is getting worse now for sure that this is the most ripe time for the evil one to make a major move to enslave and destroy! People like Bill Gates and Xi JinPing and the CCP and many other minions of hell are preparing behind the scenes to make radical moves much worse than the COVID-19 Plandemic that we’ve been experiencing. I indeed call this all the Third World War or the initial stages of what will be massive extermination plans by these most diabolical people trying to take over the world now.
    Well I’m sorry again I managed to rabble on again but I hope in all of this extra-long text there could be a thought or even a word that will make some difference for you and I’d like you to know I do this because I think highly of you and appreciate your outlook and strong faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
    God bless you also my sister and friend in Christ.

  8. Gerard Nordskoven good point you bring and I agree there has been and now is so much trickery going on as the masses are being manipulated like so much putty to be instruments of the damned here now trying to rule the world to usher in the antichrist. The old adage don’t believe anything you see and only half of what you hear has never been so applicable to human life with all of its nefarious ways and sin. I was personally attacked over the last several years by members of the Illuminati/Freemasons which included a Catholic minister and other cohorts of Satan, but now I’m a sworn enemy against them of my choosing as God kept me alive and the death my enemies wanted for me failed to materialize; so now I’m awaiting God Almighty’s will for me if He chooses to make an instrument or even a martyr to expose them and see that they are all brought to the judgment seat of the Lord sooner rather than later. This world is seething with evil now and I see no way that this can continue much more because the chosen moment which is approaching fast due to the rapid escalation of the darkest most diabolical forces are in full motion propelling them to their utter destruction. We see how many if not all of the Democrat party have overplayed their corruptness to where they are openly committing crimes both against the People and Nation but more importantly those they are committing against humanity and God Himself! They are tightening the nooses that they placed willing around their own necks in their wicked thirst for earthly power, thereby with sheer pride and defiance they tighten those nooses more each minute of each day bringing on their own destruction by God’s glorious power which is coming upon all of the damned, and to finally do away with the Devil himself forever. I pray that these coming days of tribulation be greatly shortened by the Love, Grace and Mercy of God though our Lord, Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen
    Brother in Christ Jesus,

    Thank you for your interesting story Lawrence.

    First of all I must tell you that I am not being censured here 😉 ; my three remaining team-mates and I who run this blog are good old friends: The Raven, Gertrude, mmvc and me. I only know one of them in the flesh as we all live at large distances from each other. (Sadly, our wonderful member, GC – avatar of a toucan on our sidebar – suddenly disappeared one day and we have no news why or what could have happened, although we’ve tried hard to find out!)
    No, the reason my first comment disappeared was my own fault, not through censorship… I accidently pressed the return key when I jumped up suddenly without pressing ‘save comment’ first, grrr. When later I rewrote a second slightly shorter one I think I forgot to click into ‘reply’, so you got no warning. However, if you care to search for the article you’ll find it.

    Secondly, I thank you for your kind words of encouragement if I were ever faced with holy martyrdom. My strength is in the Lord; truly I don’t have much of my own. I also remember St Paul’s fine words: “It is when I an weak that I am strong”. We’d need to prepare ourselves by much prayer and many sacrfices, as Our Lady told us to at Fatima, Akita, and other apparition sites. We westerners have led such cushy lives compared to our brothers in dangerous Islamic or Communist lands, we find it difficult to imagine such horrors that they have endured for decades, even centuries, ever occurring here. But one day they will! First a ‘white’ martyrdom that is already under way (as all faithful, traditional Christians are finding out). And then gradually, as our enemies grow in satanical influence, in hatred, and in numbers and power, the ‘red’ martyrdom will commence.

    May we be found “with our lamps burning” to face what all the heavenly prophesies are warning us is for in our times.

  10. Hi Kathleen! Thank you for the inspiration, prayers and fine work you and the other ladies are doing with this blog and this was good news to hear that you hadn’t been censured! Yea, those little technicalities can be enough to throw things off but it sounds like you have it under control and that’s good to know too. Very odd though how GC vanished, that would worry anyone if there was no indication she might do that! Was she part of the team long? Hopefully it all works out fine. Oh and as far as martyrdom I believe when the Lord chooses an individual He’s going to make sure that person will accomplish His will. As you mentioned, “St Paul’s fine words: “It is when I an weak that I am strong,” I think that is part of the overall humility required to be a martyr and if I’m not mistaken trusting in the Lord means truly letting go and that typically causes any sane person to have apprehension, that losing control and the uncertainty maybe like akin to someone walking on a high wire with no safety net, but with God all things are possible so with our faith truly in Him then His will be done; as He watches over us. Oh I’ve though that many times how over all Western persons are so spoiled and have it so easy compared to these Middle Eastern or former Soviet Bloc nations that have been war torn many times, or their everyday crimes are extremely violent and rampant throughout the region and the landscape in some areas there has been obliterated and won’t be restored anytime soon if ever now the way the world is going. We’re just starting to get a taste of the mayhem and destruction the radical left can cause with the BLM or ANTIFA, which is nothing compared to what will come as these evil minions and demonic influences increase throughout I hate to think of the carnage that will result which will make tearing down monuments and statues look like Childs play. We can see how the Democratic party, with people like Pelosi and Schiff conducting criminal conspiracy against their own government and lying the way that they do so openly proves how diabolically influenced they are already. What I see in the younger generations coming up and the amount of turmoil that’s happening already it’s a forgone conclusion that too many people are going to be caught unawares or frozen and incapacitated from doing any good. But, like my Dad would tell us growing up, “build your faith because that is what will sustain you through all times and the worst of them that are coming.” “With our lamps burning” you’re so right Kathleen I hope and pray for that same divine grace being bestowed upon us, which in my heart I feel so positive God will never let us down in the Holy name of Jesus, our Lord, Savior and Redeemer. Amen.

    Hi Lawrence, and sorry for the delay in responding. I had one of those really busy days yesterday.
    Yes, GC’s mysterious disappearance has worried and puzzled us all. She had a high-powered job in the Malayan government, yet still always found time to post and comment here with her wonderful insights, wit and optimism, plus her great cultural knowledge. To disappear suddenly without any warning just doesn’t fit in with her character, so unfortunately we can only fear the worst.
    Also, it is true that three of the remaining team on the blog are women, but The Raven is a man. He’s the most able of the team on the techno-savvy side.

    You mention many good points in your comment, as always. Must also just add that your Dad was clearly a very wise man and a good Catholic father.

    God love you (as the Irish say).

  12. Kathleen, please don’t be concerned with delays or anything of the kind with me I know your genuine good concern and work is all that matters; to me also. I appreciate any amount or degree of input from you but only when convenient. I am very sad about GC because now that you explained so many important points in the matter that I had no idea about I like you fine folks fear the worst and my heart and prayers go out to such a good faithful woman of Christ Jesus; as it does for you now and all of your associated sisters and brothers. We’re all in a big mess that actually stresses me more than ever and the once happy go lucky guy is buried under so much angst these days that he hardly pops out for a little sunshine anymore. He is still there and will not be defeated but is very quiet now. You hit the proverbial nail on the head and it was a blessing for you to say that about my Dad, who was the best man and I have to unequivocally say the best man and human being I had in my life hands down bar none who actually truly loved me like nobody else. I owe so much and practically all I have, in so much as my good characteristics whether God infused them into me or not; to my Dad’s nurturing and tending to the development of my character, because I wouldn’t have been able to be half the man I became without my Dad. He was a Dad that all people saw great good in, as they all admired and respected him far and wide. His oldest sister told me once, “oh no Larry your Dad wasn’t an ordinary person,” when I used that term from the movie title, Ordinary People, she said that, “there was nothing ordinary about your father he was a very special man,” which I agreed with her 100% and that I was explaining it wrong, and, that he was an especially blessed and touched by God person. I think he could have been a great priest or more if that was the path God wanted for him, but, in a way he was a priest in my eyes that even cry now as I think of it. He told me and my siblings more than once, “I’ll only be here as long as God needs me here and when He needs me up there I won’t be here another second.” We think there is no doubt that God had a better job for him up in heaven to do much more than he could ever do here, anymore. I was going to go into some details of even more profound revelation, but, I’ll save that for now.
    Again, thank you for all you do throughout and it really is reassuring to me to know such a wonderful woman like you, even in such a limited capacity it’s a great blessing and help to know you are out there, and, this is what gives me more hope that God will never forsake us because His plan is unfolding just the way He intended it to. I have to work harder to remember the good things told to me by all the good and great people God brought into my life to help me, and things said to all of us like what St. Mother Teresa had told others many a time, “one day at a time.”
    God bless you Kathleen. I’ll remember you when I pray.


  13. Hi Kathleen…a nice little thing happened; as I was setting up a reblog after having replied to your nice comment here, as I was going back in my archive looking for a few of the previous essays I had written that I thought would dovetail with this overall context of this article Finding God in Daily Life, because of what you said about my Dad and what I felt inspired to say about him, I’m sure this minor indicator or dot being connected was heaven sent. Upon locating this article, , I noticed at the point where the likes show and who left one I saw that I hadn’t left one for this article which I usually do, but, that you had left one and it was at the beginning of the likes so when I added mine finally because it’s my publication my like went to the head of the lineup of likes next to yours and I felt happy that it was a confirmation that God is watching over our every move and knows long before we arrive at a certain junction what is going to happen. Thank you again for bring up those good points about my Dad. God bless you.


  14. kathleen says:

    Thanks again for your comments Lawrence.

    Yes, we’re sad about GC’s sudden disappearance too. She was our Asian connection, a knowledgeable and devout Catholic living in an Islamic country, Malaysia! She even said she had some Muslim friends, but she also noticed a growing hostility and increasing Islamic radicalism among her compatriots. We continue to pray for her, hoping for a miraculous reappearance one day.

    You were certainly blessed with a wonderful caring father who knew how to fulfill his parential obligation to guide his children on the path to Heaven. It is no easy job being a parent nowadays; our children and youngsters are being exposed (no matter how hard we try to shelter them) to an atheistic world of anti-Christian, materialistic secularism. It’s like we’re swimming against a giant tsunami of evil!
    Have you read any of Michael O’Brien’s books, e.g., “Father Elias”, “Eclipse of the Sun”, etc.? He artfully depicts this reality of what we are confronting today in some gripping fictional tales.

    Returning to the subject of prophecies: I believe we had some remarkable popes in the 19th and 20th centuries (all bearing the name ‘Pius’!) who were also visionaries. They tried to prepare the faithful of the Church for the coming infiltration of every sort of demonic evil: both Modernism and Freemasonry within the very sanctuary of the Church, and Communism/nihilism in the world at large.
    If after so many divine interventions (some mentioned in the article above), and the prophecies of numerous holy mystics, we still choose to turn a deaf ear to their warnings and carry on seeking only selfish hedonistic pleasures, we shall only have ourselves to blame at the time of the coming Chastisement.

    Wishing you a blessed Sunday, Our Lord’s day.


  15. Good Sunday to you Kathleen.
    Let me start toward the end here. This is indeed striking and pronounced in my view so clearly now. “They tried to prepare the faithful of the Church for the coming infiltration of every sort of demonic evil: both Modernism and Freemasonry within the very sanctuary of the Church, and Communism/nihilism in the world at large.”


  16. Apparently like I had written recently about this period now isn’t just a most unprecedented of times but the “most” that will ever come to this weary world because there is no way the confrontation coming will be quelled without utter ruin the likes of which this planet and all of humanity has never witnessed; even I believe the cataclysmic end by the flood and a new beginning of Noah’s time, because this is a ruin from the inside out and from without together in order for diabolical evil to gain complete control, and not like the sweeping flood from a deluge of rain water from above! I just heard that a city council meeting may have started out with a prayer to Allah and Satan which I certainly will investigate but I bring it up not because I already know that is quite possibly true because of what you mentioned already the Free Masons and Illuminati along with the Luciferians and all manner of evil occult practices are thoroughly permeated into the fabric of our high-tech digital, AI networked global society that has turned its back on Jesus Christ and thusly God the Father with a rebellion I feel is not unlike the beginning of all rebellion when Lucifer with the fallen angels rebuked and transgressed God.
    I see the striking clash of this present time mind-set so strongly contrasts the period when C.S. Lewis was writing for the sake of children in some of his writings to inspire Christianity and the love of Christ in their hearts after having lost his faith and regaining it miraculously and so beautifully. Now we have people like Rowling that promote sorcery and the occult like it’s a fun thing in Harry Potter manipulating young minds and hearts to seek fanciful worlds of magic and mysticism over seeking to know God and their actual purpose for existing. The world has played with fire for too long and now the magnitude of this folly or vanity is so massive that there will never be another time so ripe for not just the communists Marxist devils of the world but no better a moment for the Devil himself to seize this opportunity to steal most if not all of humanity he figures from God as his one final ultimate act of contempt and hatred of God Himself! In my mind there is no doubt we are in WWIII and this is the final battle but not just as you are well aware a war of attrition to as in the past slug it out until the good guys prevail and then rebuild but to have that one huge spiritual battle of Armageddon the clash between Heaven and Hell when all the forces both material and spiritual will be unleashed like never before and it is coming sooner I’m sure, barring any act of God Himself to postpone this inevitable demise.


  17. Kathleen I actually did start reading your excellent comment toward the last portion of it and then went back to read from the beginning because the point I quoted came to my eye immediately and now as I respond to the rest I see what I said in response thoroughly corresponds to exactly your meaning you conveyed in these words, again, “no matter how hard we try to shelter them) to an atheistic world of anti-Christian, materialistic secularism,” I see this nothing short than the Holy Spirit guiding one or both of us and I prefer to think you’re the one in the greater state of grace being truly inspired, but, I’m a hit or miss sort who wants to do better for God and do at times and then I allow the bad that has happened, to gain my attention and distort my feelings or clarity. I mostly let anger get a grip and my blood boils but never to actually strike out at all, but, only hurting myself with stress and worry which the Devil loves, but, like my father always told me, “they can do anything to this body and even destroy it, but my soul belongs to God!”


  18. What I admit there is I’m a very passionate and compassionate man but by the hand of the dirty crooked world I was damaged and now I do suffer from PTSD. It will never overpower my faith and love for Jesus, I’ve been tested in fire that not many people actually truly comprehend and know about me. I should be dead several times over as I have fought a battle within society where I was set-up and then antagonized or provoked to anger so that I would mess up and then give the fascists the upper hand to clobber me and tear me to shreds but i out witted these devils by God’s Holy Spirit touching and giving me strength! For the most part people don’t give a damn and that is OK with me I used to care what people think about me or want them top like me, but that is so much vanity and foolish to me now, I only need Jesus Christ, I have no one else anyway, I know that, and this world means nothing to me. I think I can safely say that I know what martyrdom tastes like up close and personal. I was forcefully attacked both spiritually and physically on North American Martyr Day after having sprinkled Holy Water on the interior of a building I worked in where a tyrant and evil minion of Satan’s ruled with impunity within a government operation and I was told to do that by a man who once studied in the seminary to be a priest and didn’t go through to being ordained. The man I was up against within the government circles was so bad that many used to call him the Devil and he was proud of that title! Me, the happy go lucky nice big brother to anyone was put in this predicament for a good reason just like my Dad always said there is a reason for everything! My priest friend now knows all of these things and not even family know the half of it nor have time for it and do fear for themselves or younger family members I’m sure. Some don’t care out of selfishness and being somewhat weak not having a strong enough faith that they practice. I had a few ladies lately speak about Catholics and how they being in other churches see this all as too much pomp or tradition and ritual! I say this today to anyone that will listen. Don’t you see how conflicted and sick humans are and how much sin they possess? Do you really think you can skate though life and be devoid of making huge mistakes in your faith for Jesus? I see the regimented doctrinal practice of faith as an only tool that keeps people on the straight and narrow because what did Jesus say! Enter the narrow gate, for the gate is wide and the road is spacious which leads to destruction, and many are those who are going in it. Matthew 7:13
    People think they can have their cake and eat it too because they say I’m a Christian and I don’t hurt anyone. I love Jesus! So that will do it for many they so think. If it were that east why is all of this confusion and mayhem going on all around us and even in our own families? Because the road to destruction if the road we are on and in! We are living in SIN and no hope of escaping it, Jesus didn’t say I died for you so have your sins and then I will fix the books! NO WAY, we better shape up or ship out like my Mom said! “12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12 that’s no silly thing; we should fear the possible loss we face now not down the road or when I feel like it! On the otherwise of this life is eternity; and can any of us say with certainty that we are home free? NO WAY! And Satan is looking to trip up as many as he can before they die! Look at these minions in the streets and all the higher notable people that live in horrendous sin and lust for power like Hillary or Obama and Xi JinPing along with so many that the list is countless! I didn’t suffer this is nothing because we all deserve hell! As it is written, “There is no one righteous; no, not one.” Romans 3:10
    Many churches and its followers think a modern designer approach is good enough or they know Scripture and stand by it. Then, many of these same people live lives of selfishness or lack true humility, thinking they know what they are doing! Wake up, every one that wants to make it to heaven; this world is passing away and your opportunity to make it is disappearing before your very eyes; don’t you get that? And, not going to cut it if you are halfhearted and not in all the way and willing to carry your cross every day without fail fighting this sinful world that wants to devour your time, energy and soul! It’s not a fluff and puffed up affair of I do a bit and I live a bit! No, it is all in and do or die now, and there is no excuse you get that? I’ve gotten to relate to some people online that took me for money even playing the role of a devout Catholic and being a shyster conning people to pity and extend a helping hand with cash. I did and when I realized I was taken it angered me, but, then I said let that person find their way hopefully that person wakes up soon. It’s like that with Jesus we can pretend and talk the talk, but, what are we really after? This person wanted money to do whatever and get it easy. NO SHORT CUTS OR MALARKEY WILL DO WITH GOD!

    I hope you all can have the contrite, humble heart that is needed in order to allow God Almighty by His Holy Spirit to take charge of your immortal soul and lead you to paths of righteousness, so that you will enter by the narrow gate into His eternal kingdom. Amen.
    God bless you all out there.

  19. Sorry for the duplicate text I had been writing in two spaces all of my thoughts and added them together in order to pint them here after I had already typed some in this reply window. I do this occasionally not checking over and over to make sure it’s correct, of course in my own blog I can edit and fix them! See here too, regimentation and stronger checks and balances is needed in our faith too! Being careless or flimsy and in a big hurry can throw us off our balance or maintaining the bench mark we need. My Dad I must say again was reminding us that we need a routine and discipline without them we are going to surely run into more troubles than we should. How else can one stay on the straight and narrow when we live in a chaotic upside down mess? We don’t get away with, “well that’s above my pay grade,” like the people I worked with that knew like I that this boss was evil, and the system was wrong to enable such people to have the upper-hand. Corruption begets more corruption. At least in our personal affairs of duty, responsibility and obligation we can strive to be disciplined and as accurate as possible, asking Jesus through the Holy Spirit to help us please. Thank you for the opportunity God and all of you out there. Amen.

    Lawrence, I’m sorry to hear you now suffer from PTSD owing to all you have been through. That must be a very heavy cross to carry, but you stoically move forward all the same as is shown by everything you say. You are surely saving many souls from hellfire by remaining true to Christ and the teachings of His Holy Chuch. Therefore be at peace in your heart and know you are dearly loved by the Lord for your faithfulness.

    I must add that I loved those powerful words you quoted from your Dad at the end of your previous comment: “they can do anything to this body and even destroy it, but my soul belongs to God!”

  21. Hi Kathleen… and thank you for these beautiful genuine kind words from your heart! How do I know someone might ask, because, the Holy Spirit just told me so, when I was allowed to feel them and tear up! He is with us always and we are the lost lambs and maybe some wayward goats that really need some help too, but, all need to take heed to everything He has told us and shown us over the millennia! Not to worry I look at this like John Wayne used to say, getting old isn’t for sissies! I was always way younger feeling and looking, but, this put my body through the mill yet through God’s awesome grace I’m holding my own and that is all that matters for now! I need nothing but Him to hold me together and heal me even with this stress factor I eat and do as I wish, holistic remedies and can still hop around like the energizer bunny and climb up on the roof and reroof it if I absolutely had to, but, though I would try like I did several years ago, now it would be pushing it. I walk several miles a day without missing a beat, and, I’m amazed God has been this good to me! But, like my Dad used to always say to us, he won’t be here another second when God needs Him up there. He said how, “he is only here because God needs him here,” and I too think it works that way. I can tell by what has happened that can be the only reason I’m alive and kicking!
    Honest to God Kathleen this makes me cry that you said this, “You are surely saving many souls from hellfire by remaining true to Christ and the teachings of His Holy Church,” because when I talk to Jesus Christ and feel the Holy Spirit I ask if this is something I can do to make up for my foolishness and lack throughout my lifetime, so, I can help others to not fail and lose their precious immortal souls! I think how young Emily Rose the movie name for the German girl as you know Anneliese Michel, was so brave and good to give up her chance to have a worldly life so she could instead suffer horribly for the sake of others to be saved and she sure did that so well, I cry thinking of her and any martyrs and saints that have and still do serve our heavenly Father’s will totally and put to the ultimate test of not only being tested by fire, but, truly giving up everything personally, to even laying down their lives for the sake of others is one of the most inspiring things I can imagine in this world. I’m glad you loved those words my Dad spoke and to me as well as my siblings we know he was a special man always without a glitch, and I truly know that what I said about writing early today in response to your long comment how I jumped toward the middle of the text by Divine intervention I think, because, as I wrote my response it flowed then I sent it to you and saw what you had just sent to me as your response to my first part of the comment and how I loved those words you mentioned about the children. Then it all dovetailed from there! I need to go eat as I laugh because I passed up lunch and anything to drink during this afternoon because I had to in my mind get this long article published and it is there now, so, I hope you see it soon. I will take one more look to see if it’s got few or no glitches and then off I go! Thank you so much and I will look forward to anything you fine ladies are publishing all of the time! God bless you! Amen.


  22. kathleen says:

    Thanks for this Lawrence, and I believe there are very many holy unknown “Emily Roses” out there praying and suffering for souls. You are surely one of them too, I mean it in all sincerity.
    Just one piece of advice (if I may be so bold)… Don’t let the terrible anguish, evil and injustices you have been subjected to by those “agents of Satan” continue to weigh on your heart. Thank God for His trust in choosing you as a victim soul, and then try to put it behind you. Hard, I know, but you need peace in your heart to be able to keep fighting the good fight.

    By the way, I went over to your great blog but wasn’t sure which post you were referring to. Was it the first one, a reblog of an earlier post?

    May God bless you abundantly.
