Let me reveal my plan to save the nations. I will not be able to save all because their darkness resists my light. Only those who are swept up into my light will experience my saving action.
Also, my saving actions will vary, at least in their external forms. When a persecution breaks out do not some suffer martyrdom and some are preserved. Yet all were guided by my light. So, it will be with the events. All will be touched differently, even those who are filled with my light. There will be no uniform result. Yet my light will be effective in every one who trusts and believes in me.
How can I pour out this light? Usually, I choose messengers, appear to them, provide signs and wonders, give messages and attract many to come. In this way, light goes forth and love for me increases. I will not neglect this means, but controversies arise and enemies speak out. Much of the light is lost or diminished. Limits are set and the welcome sign is taken down. People even wonder if the blessing they experienced was true.
So, I must use another plan. This is exactly why I speak. Catholics are used to apparition sites which have strengthened their faith. Even if they have not personally visited there, they have read and heard the stories. The events strengthen their faith. They know that I love them and have visited them.
In this age of darkness, I will use another plan. No one will be able to block my path of light. Listen closely to what I am doing because the light is at your doorstep. Do not wait for another apparition. They are true and valid but I must act more quickly. Realize this, all the light which usually flows from these sites is now readily available everywhere. I am ready to break through into everyone’s heart, especially your own. The normal ways are stymied and I must create new ways that no one can block.
Let my light break forth right now, in every heart that believes, in every soul that is reading these locutions. Let the light break forth now. This will be the greatest sign, that all are filled with new light with no need of an apparition.
Comment: Our Lady’s light is available right now within your heart.

No, the sky is not falling — not yet, anyway — but with the Supreme Court ruling constitutionalizing same-sex marriage, the ground under our feet has shifted tectonically.
It is hard to overstate the significance of the Obergefell decision — and the seriousness of the challenges it presents to orthodox Christians and other social conservatives. Voting Republican and other failed culture war strategies are not going to save us now.
Discerning the meaning of the present moment requires sobriety, precisely because its radicalism requires of conservatives a realistic sense of how weak our position is in post-Christian America.
The alarm that the four dissenting justices sounded in their minority opinions is chilling. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Antonin Scalia were particularly scathing in pointing out the philosophical and historical groundlessness of the majority’s opinion. Justice Scalia even called the decision “a threat to democracy,” and denounced it, shockingly, in…

In what can only be described as a tragic blow to the sacred institution of holy matrimony, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that couples of the same gender may legally be married to one another. Not unlike Roe v. Wade, which legalized the heinous practice of abortion, this current decision not only violates the intrinsic moral code that arises from Natural Law, it additionally severs ties with thousands of years of tradition and conventional wisdom pertaining to the institution of marriage.
This most unfortunate decision will have far-reaching consequences and will negatively affect the lives of millions of innocent children, all of whom possess the fundamental right of being raised by the traditional male / female, husband / wife team.
Children are the human personification of the sacred and inviolable conjugal love of their biological parents. This new court ruling fundamentally undermines the true meaning and purpose of holy matrimony.
Sadly, today is not simply a “victory” for those who regard themselves as progressive “civil-rights advocates;” it is also a victory for moral relativism, which denies the existence of objective, universal and absolute moral truths and axioms.
What follows is a reproduction of the official statement of Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, president of the United States Council of Catholic Bishops:
“Regardless of what a narrow majority of the Supreme Court may declare at this moment in history, the nature of the human person and marriage remains unchanged and unchangeable. Just as Roe v. Wade did not settle the question of abortion over forty years ago, Obergefell v. Hodges does not settle the question of marriage today. Neither decision is rooted in the truth, and as a result, both will eventually fail. Today the Court is wrong again. It is profoundly immoral and unjust for the government to declare that two people of the same sex can constitute a marriage.
“The unique meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman is inscribed in our bodies as male and female. The protection of this meaning is a critical dimension of the “integral ecology” that Pope Francis has called us to promote. Mandating marriage redefinition across the country is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us, especially children. The law has a duty to support every child’s basic right to be raised, where possible, by his or her married mother and father in a stable home.
“Jesus Christ, with great love, taught unambiguously that from the beginning marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman. As Catholic bishops, we follow our Lord and will continue to teach and to act according to this truth.
“I encourage Catholics to move forward with faith, hope, and love: faith in the unchanging truth about marriage, rooted in the immutable nature of the human person and confirmed by divine revelation; hope that these truths will once again prevail in our society, not only by their logic, but by their great beauty and manifest service to the common good; and love for all our neighbors, even those who hate us or would punish us for our faith and moral convictions.
“Lastly, I call upon all people of good will to join us in proclaiming the goodness, truth, and beauty of marriage as rightly understood for millennia, and I ask all in positions of power and authority to respect the God-given freedom to seek, live by, and bear witness to the truth.”
It is the conviction of this author that given the momentum and power by which liberalism and secular humanism have been making inroads into government agendas of the West, it is merely a matter of time before the practice of Christianity will become outlawed on grounds that it allegedly promotes “hatred” and “intolerance.” Specifically, it is this author’s conviction that those Christian denominations which attempt to hold fast to the truths of the faith regarding the inherent and objective sinfulness of homosexual activity (not homosexual persons!!!!) and the inherent and objective sinfulness of abortion, in particular, will result in the incarceration of Catholics and other Christians who refuse to make easy compromises with the world.
Granted, this will undoubtedly be one of the most dubious, ironic and, frankly, Satanic twists in the history of our once great Christian nation, particularly given the reality that those branding Christianity – the quintessence of selfless, universal love and tolerance – as the hate-mongering entity they claim it to be, will themselves be acting out of a genuine, authentic hatred and quite sincere intolerance. Yet, with things progressing as they are, and with Satan being the undisputed “Prince” of this world, having seduced the overwhelming majority of those who, quite often behind the scenes, serve as the “puppet masters” of the so-called “elected officials,” Christianity, in general, and Catholicism, in particular, stand in the way of the secular humanistic agenda to usher in the one-world “socialist” government (uniting the “North American Union” of the US, Canada & Mexico with both the already established European Union, and finally, via the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Asian Union [thereby bringing to fruition the goals of the Trilateral Commission]) which will, according to the best-selling book, “None Dare Call it Conspiracy,” be based on the ten planks of Marxist Communism, as delineated in the Communist Manifesto:
1. Abolition of private property;
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax;
3. Abolition of all rights to inheritance;
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels;
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly;
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport into the hands of the State;
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State;
8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of Industrial Armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of the population over the country (Globe);
10. Free education (indoctrination) for all children.
And, while not listed as one of the planks, the absolute abolition of traditional religion, the “opiate” of the masses, to be replaced with a “one world religion,” or spirituality, which, in truth, will be a masked version of the occult, which many world leaders have been involved in for some time.
These are, essentially, the goals of the New World Order, for which the United Nations exists. For a more detailed account of the plan to implement Marxist Communism as the credo at the heart of the one world government agenda, this author suggests the book, “None Dare Call it Conspiracy.” It provides a succinct explanation of the 100-year history of this movement, along with its goals for the implementation of the “New Secular Order,” the birth of which is proudly announced on the Great Seal of the United States of America, which is depicted on the reverse of every one dollar bill.
In 1917, Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal, in a remote village area referred to as the Cova da Iria, in order to announce to the Church and the world that God wished to establish, in and throughout the world, devotion to Mary’s Immaculate Heart. It is important to note that the events of Fatima, after a thorough investigation conducted by the Catholic Church, were definitively judged by the Church to be worthy of belief. This, in itself, is quite extraordinary, as the criteria that must be met for official “approval” of the universal Church in such matters is most strict and has rarely been afforded to similar alleged “apparitions.”
In another collection of messages from Our Lady, received via interior locution by the late Don Stefano Gobbi, and which have been compiled, in their entirety, in the 18th Edition of the book, “To the Priests, Our Lady’s Well-Beloved Sons” (which, as should be noted, has received not only several Imprimaturs [the official statement by a bishop that any particular manuscript contains nothing contrary to faith or morality, as contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith, which is safeguarded by the Magisterium of the Church] from two prestigious Roman Catholic Bishops, and two Cardinals [including + Donald W. Montrose, D.D., Bishop of Stockton; + Francesco Cuccarese, Archbishop Emeritus of Pescara-Penne; Cardinal Ignace Moussa Daoud, Patriarch emeritus of Antioch for Syrians, Prefect emeritus of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches; and + Bernardino Cardinal Echeverria Ruiz, O.F.M., Archbishop Emeritus of Guayaquil, Apostolic Administrator of Ibarra], but additionally, personal endorsements, high praise and accolades from the latter two Cardinals!!), Our Lady speaks extensively about these times, in which we are currently living, as “the end-times,” that period of human history which is spoken about in St. John’s Book of Revelation. Further, she states that these times are far worse than the times of “the deluge,” when God, in His righteous anger, chastised humanity through the great flood. According to Sacred Scripture, Noah and his family were the only righteous and God-fearing people left in the land; thus, God instructed Noah to build a great ark, in order that he and his family might be protected, and that they might re-populate the earth by taking into the ark one male and one female of every type of creature.
Noah, being the upright and God-fearing man that he was, immediately began construction, despite the ridicule of his neighbors and, eventually, all the town’s people. Yet, much to the chagrin and regret of these naysayers, Noah and his family were saved while everyone else perished in this completely unforeseen chastisement that God had planned for the world, to purify and renew it.
God made a vow that He would never again chastise the world by water; Yet, numerous saints and mystics, throughout the two thousand-year history of Christendom, have prophetically foretold of a second great chastisement by FIRE. Given the radical political, economic, cultural and planetary instability that only grows worse and more fragile with each passing day, we have every reason to believe that these “signs of the times” are very clearly pointing to the reality of the Great Chastisement and Purification that Christ’s Mystical Body, the Church, must undergo before it can rise gloriously triumphant, via the blood of the countless Christian martyrs that will have given their lives in witnessing to the Truth of Christ Jesus as the Son of God.
We are now witnessing, with our own eyes, the beginnings of a complete economic, political, social and global breakdown, which, in my humble opinion, will very probably lead to the Third World War, which would undoubtedly be a chastisement, permitted by God, of “fire falling from the sky, sparing neither priests nor faithful.” (Message of Akita, Japan, to Sr. Agnes)
Our Lady very clearly explains to Fr. Gobbi that the ark that we must enter into, in order to be kept safe from the great tempest of these wicked times, is none other than her own Immaculate Heart. Furthermore, the “key” that gains us entrance into this safe refuge is a solemn Act of Consecration to Mary’s Immaculate Heart. For more information on Consecration to Mary’s Heart, click here.
It is the belief of this author that only a small portion of the so-called “Third-Secret of Fatima,” which was meant to be revealed to the world in 1960, but which was delayed until the Jubilee year of 2000, was actually revealed. This author’s beliefs regarding this “partial” disclosure have to do with events that we are now witnessing within the Church Hierarchy.
A small but powerful grouping of European Archbishops have held, in private and by invitation only, a secret “shadow council,” wherein they have discussed making very serious, critical changes to official, de fide, Church teachings on such issues as (1) permitting artificial contraception; (2) acknowledging same-sex unions (by replacing Pope St. John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body” with a new, updated, “Theology of Love”); (3) permitting every form of co-habitation; (4) permitting divorced and re-married Catholics, that is, remarried outside the Church with no annulment of the first Catholic and Sacramental marriage (and who, for that reason, are living in an habitual state of sin), to partake of the holy Eucharist.
This “Shadow Council,” held by the heads of the German, French and Swiss Councils of Catholic Bishops, took place at the Gregorian Pontifical University in Rome. According to Edward Pentin of the National Catholic Register, “Around 50 participants, including bishops, theologians and media representatives, took part in the gathering, at the invitation of the presidents of the bishops’ conferences of Germany, Switzerland and France — Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Bishop Markus Büchel and Archbishop Georges Pontier… One of the key topics discussed at the closed-door meeting was how the Church could better welcome those in stable same-sex unions, and reportedly “no one” opposed such unions being recognized as valid by the Church.” Click here for the full text of this heart-stopping article.
Moreover, all of these things have been predicted by Our Lady herself in numerous Church APPROVED apparitions, such as those at La Salette, France and Akita, Japan. Before Benedict XVI became pope, he confirmed that the message of Akita was essentially the same as the Third Secret of Fatima, which would explain quite well why this Third Secret was suppressed for as long as it was, and why, according to the thesis of this author, only a portion of the message has been revealed. In order to better understand the potential contents of the Third Secret, let us, on the information provided by the then Cardinal Ratzinger, take a closer look at the message of Akita:
“If men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the Bishops and the priests.
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see Cardinals opposing Cardinals, Bishops against other Bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises, and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will no longer be pardon for them.
Thus, it seems, at least to this author, that the Third Secret very likely contained information that Our Lady has revealed elsewhere regarding internal strife within the Church Hierarchy itself, and such information, if disseminated, would thwart the plans of those members of the Roman Curia who have, indeed, been seduced by Satan, and are working to abolish the true Christ and His true Church, and to replace it with a false Christ and a false Church. Indeed, Our Lady speaks to Fr. Gobbi about the efforts of “Ecclesiastical Freemasonry” – that is, Freemasonry having infiltrated into the very summit of the Church of Rome, in order to destroy the faith and the Church from within. Hence, it is only in hindsight that we see what a tremendous gift Pope St. John Paul II was to the Church, particularly in having established the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is a “sure norm” for teaching the TRUE faith of the Church.
Thus, the “little faithful remnant” comprising the TRUE Church of Christ will have at Her disposal everything She needs in order to stay faithful to Her Lord and Savior, Who founded His Church on the Rock of St. Peter, and Who solemnly promised that “the gates of hell” would never prevail against Her.
Let us, then, take up our weapons – Holy Mass / Eucharist, the daily recitation of the Rosary, the wearing of the Scapular, the miraculous medal worn around the neck and distributed as a mini-catechism of the four dogmas and the fifth doctrine of Mary’s Spiritual Motherhood, the daily reading of Sacred Scripture and the practice of our dearly beloved Catholic faith in the public square, for all to see. May we be at least as vocal as the shrieking voices of Satan’s pawns, who, while preaching “Tolerance, Tolerance…” are anything but tolerant of the tried and true Christian traditions upon which this Constitutional Republic was built.
