The Whore of Babylon


An Impediment to Evil

"We ask you, brothers, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling with him, not to be shaken out of your minds suddenly, or to be alarmed either by a "spirit," or by an oral statement, or by a letter allegedly from us to the effect that the day of the Lord is at hand. Let no one deceive you in any way. For unless the apostasy comes first and the lawless one is revealed, the one doomed to perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship, so as to seat himself in the temple of God, claiming that he is a god-- do you not recall that while I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. But the one who restrains is to do so only for the present, until he is removed from the scene. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord (Jesus) will kill with the breath of his mouth and render powerless by the manifestation of his coming, the one whose coming springs from the power of Satan in every mighty deed and in signs and wonders that lie, and in every wicked deceit for those who are perishing because they have not accepted the love of truth so that they may be saved. Therefore, God is sending them a deceiving power so that they may believe the lie, that all who have not believed the truth but have approved wrongdoing may be condemned. But we ought to give thanks to God for you always, brothers loved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in truth. To this end he has (also) called you through our gospel to possess the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting encouragement and good hope through his grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word." (2 Thes 2:1-17)


Witness the Pontificate of Pope John Paul II. It appeared to have been orchestrated by Heaven!

His pontificate was a consistent preparation for, and struggle against, the Evil of the End Times. In the light of his recent repeated references to the book of Revelation, and his recent statements to certain cardinals and bishops to "examine the signs of the times", he made a momentous effort to protect the Faith, and gather his flock before the storm.

He traveled the world evangelizing and caring for his flock unlike any of his predecessors. Pope John Paul II declared the Great Jubilee year of 2000 the year of evangelization. Almost immediately after the closing of the holy doors on the Jubilee year, he commenced discussions regarding joining the Church with representatives of most all faiths: the Anglicans, the Lutherans, the Moslems, the Russian Orthodox, schismatic Catholics, the Armenians, and the Jews to name a few. He promulgated many writings strengthening the Church and edifying the Catholic Faith. In view of certain private prophecy, both approved and yet-to-be-approved, these actions and pronouncements appear designed to defend against the Great Apostasy and the evil forces of the Tribulation
(2 Thes 2:1-5).

We have been told that Freemasonry will infiltrate the Church, and that during the Tribulation the following will come under attack:


the Holy Trinity as the one and only true God,


the Catholic Church as the one true Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ,


the real presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist,


the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (in particular, the Holy Words of Consecration),


devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary,


the power and efficacy of the Holy Rosary,


the primacy of the Papacy,


the Sacrament of Matrimony,


sex is acceptable between a husband and wife only,


the priesthood,


the Sacrament of Reconciliation,


the Faith and morality in general, and more.

Consider a few of the
promulgations of John Paul II in the light of the above:


Reconciliatio et Paenitentia - on the reconciliation of a divided world.


Dominus Iesus - the one true religion exists in the Catholic and Apostolic Church.


Fidei Depositum - issuance of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.


Ad Tuendam Fidem - 'To Protect the Faith', especially from within.


Revised Profession of Faith - Profession of Faith and Oath of Fidelity on Assuming an Office To Be Exercised in the Name of the Church


Fides et Ratio - On the relationship between Faith and Reason


Ut Unum Sint - on Christian unity i.e. within the Catholic Church.


The various Ecclesia's - Asia - Europe - Americas - Africa - Oceania - on the 2nd Evangelization


Ecclesia de Euchristia - on the real presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist.


Mane Nobiscum Domine - on the value of receiving the Holy Eucharist and Eucharistic adoration, and declaring the year of the Holy Eucharist


Redemptionis Sacramentum - Instruction on the discipline of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass


Redemptoris Mater - on the Mother of Jesus, true God and true man.


Rosarium Virginis Mariae - on the Most Holy Rosary, and the establishment of the new Luminous Mysteries.


Universi Dominici Gregis - strict limitation on the Cardinals during the absence of a Pope, and rules for electing his successor.


Vatican City State Constitution - which clarified and solidified his position as the head of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the government of the Vatican City.


Declaration on Masonic Associations - prohibits any Catholic from associating with Freemasonry. To do so, is a grave sin, and makes one ineligible to receive Holy Communion.


Magnum Matrimonii Sacramentum - on the Sacrament of Matrimony.


Considerations Regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition to Unions Between Homosexual Persons - marriage exists solely between a man and a woman.


Misercordia Dei - on certain aspects of the Sacrament of Penance (Reconciliation).


Jesus Christ the Bearer of the Water of Life - Defense against the New Age religion.


Evangelium Vitae on the value and inviolability of human life.


Ordinatio Sacredotalis - declaring that ordination into the priesthood is reserved for men only

Truly, John Paul II dedicated his pontificate to restraining the rebellion of the Great Apostasy. We have been told that the False Prophet will succeed him; and usher in the open rebellion of the Great Apostasy, which has been seeping into the Church for decades.

Then the Lawless One, the Antichrist, will rise.


In the Words of John Paul II

Pope John Paul II, as Karol Cardinal Wojtyla, spoke these words during a visit to the United States in 1976:

"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence…It is a…test of 2,000 years of culture and Christian civilization with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations." (Notable & Quotable, Karol Cardinal Wojtyla (who became Pope John Paul II), Wall Street Journal, Nov. 9, 1978.)


"We have to be prepared to suffer, before long, great trials which will require of us the disposition to sacrifice even our life for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is still possible to diminish this trial, but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only in this manner can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the renewal of the Church been brought about in blood! It will not be different this time." (John Paul II – November 1980.)


"…If victory comes it will be brought by Mary. Christ will conquer through her, because He wants the Church’s victories now and in the future to be linked to her…I could see…that there was a certain continuity among LaSalette, Lourdes and Fatima…And thus we come to May 13, 1981, when I was wounded by gunshots fired in St. Peter’s Square. . . the assassination attempt had occurred on the exact anniversary of the day Mary appeared to the three children at Fatima in Portugal and spoke to them the words that now, at the end of this century, seem to be close to their fulfillment . . Andre Malraux was certainly right when he said that the twenty-first century would be the century of religion or it would not be at all." …… (Crossing the Threshold of Hope, .. John Paul II,..Alfred A. Knopf, New York, NY, 1994 , pgs. 221; 228-229.)

(n.b. We know that Pope John Paul II read the secret 3rd part of the message of Fatima shortly after being elected Pope, and then again in 1981. According to Pope John Paul II in this account written in 1994, he was expecting the fulfillment of the 3rd part of the message of Fatima to be realized soon. In contrast Cardinal Sodano and then-Cardinal Ratzinger in 2000, stated that the 3rd part of the message of Fatima was realized with the attempted assassination of John Paul II in 1981. Their "official interpretation" also marked the first time that the Vatican has officially "interpreted" private revelation.).


During the Ordinary Public Consistory held in St. Peter's Square on February 21, 2001 in the presence of tens of thousands of faithful, Pope John Paul created 44 new cardinals. His speech emphasized the cardinals required fidelity to the Pope, the need to examine the 'Signs of the Times', and their commitment to remain loyal to the faith even unto the shedding of their blood. He said:

"Venerable Brothers, you are the first Cardinals to be created in the new millennium. After having drawn in abundance from the sources of divine mercy during the Holy Year, the mystical barque of the Church is preparing anew 'to put out into the deep', to bring the message of salvation to the world. Together let us unfurl her sails to the wind of the Spirit, examining the signs of the times and interpreting them in the light of the Gospel, to answer the ever recurring questions which men ask about the meaning of this present life and of the life to come". (John Paul II, L'Osservatore Romano February, 21, 2001)


"The hour of the lay faithful has arrived," the Pope said when meeting with bishops from the ecclesiastical provinces of Indianapolis, Chicago and Milwaukee, during their five-yearly visit to Rome…"Taking up this challenge, however, will require a realistic and comprehensive reading of the 'signs of the times,' in order to develop a persuasive presentation of the Catholic faith," he observed…"Now is above all the hour of the lay faithful, who, by their specific vocation to shape the secular world in accordance with the Gospel, are called to carry forward the Church's prophetic mission by evangelizing the various spheres of family, social, professional and cultural life," the Holy Father said. (John Paul II, www.zenit.org May 28, 2004) 


To certain bishops of the USA while making their ad limina visit to the Vatican, Pope John Paul II said: "…I leave two charges to you and your brother bishops." . The first is a fraternal encouragement to persevere joyfully in the ministry entrusted to you, in obedience to the authentic teaching of the Church, Can we not see in the pain and scandal of recent years both 'a sign of the times' and a providential call to conversion and deeper fidelity to the demands of the Gospel. -- In her own way, the Church in the United States has been called to begin the new millennium by "starting afresh from Christ" and by making the truth of the Gospel clearly the measure of her life and all her activity.

"In this light, I once more praise your efforts to ensure that each individual and group in the Church understands the urgent need for a consistent, honest and faithful witness to the Catholic faith, and that each of the Church's institutions and apostolates expresses in every aspect of its life a clear Catholic identity…". (John Paul II, Vatican Information Service; December 10, 2004)


The Great Apostasy


Holy Scripture:

(In addition to 2 Thessalonians cited above)

"Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to .contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.. For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; just as Sodom and Gomor'rah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. Yet in like manner these men in their dreamings defile the flesh, reject authority, and revile the glorious ones. But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, disputed about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you." But these men revile whatever they do not understand, and by those things that they know by instinct as irrational animals do, they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they walk in the way of Cain, and abandon themselves for the sake of gain to Balaam's error, and perish in Korah's rebellion. These are blemishes on your love feasts, as they boldly carouse together, looking after themselves; waterless clouds, carried along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars for whom the nether gloom of darkness has been reserved for ever. It was of these also that Enoch in the seventh generation from Adam prophesied, saying, "Behold, the Lord came with his holy myriads, to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness which they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against him." These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own passions, loud-mouthed boasters, flattering people to gain advantage. .But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; they said to you, "In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions." It is these who set up divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And convince some, who doubt; save some, by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now to him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you without blemish before the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and for ever. Amen. (Jude 1:3-25)

"There were also false prophets among the people, just as .there will be false teachers among you, who will introduce destructive heresies and even deny the Master who ransomed them, bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their licentious ways, and because of them the way of truth will be reviled. In their greed they will exploit you with fabrications, but from of old their condemnation has not been idle and their destruction does not sleep. For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but condemned them to the chains of Tartarus and handed them over to be kept for judgment; and if he did not spare the ancient world, even though he preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, together with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the godless world; and if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (to destruction), reducing them to ashes, making them an example for the godless (people) of what is coming; and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man oppressed by the licentious conduct of unprincipled people (for day after day that righteous man living among them was tormented in his righteous soul at the lawless deeds that he saw and heard), then the Lord knows how to rescue the devout from trial and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment, and especially those who follow the flesh with its depraved desire and show contempt for lordship. Bold and arrogant, they are not afraid to revile glorious beings, whereas angels, despite their superior strength and power, do not bring a reviling judgment against them from the Lord. But these people, like irrational animals born by nature for capture and destruction, revile things that they do not understand, and in their destruction they will also be destroyed, suffering wrong as payment for wrongdoing. Thinking daytime revelry a delight, they are stains and defilements as they revel in their deceits while carousing with you. Their eyes are full of adultery and insatiable for sin. They seduce unstable people, and their hearts are trained in greed. Accursed children! Abandoning the straight road, they have gone astray, following the road of Balaam, the son of Bosor, who loved payment for wrongdoing, but he received a rebuke for his own crime: a mute beast spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet's madness. These people are waterless springs and mists driven by a gale; for them the gloom of darkness has been reserved. For, talking empty bombast, .they seduce with licentious desires of the flesh those who have barely escaped from people who live in error. They promise them freedom, .though they themselves are slaves of corruption, for a person is a slave of whatever overcomes him. For if they, having escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of (our) Lord and savior Jesus Christ, again become entangled and overcome by them, their last condition is worse than their first. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment handed down to them. What is expressed in the true proverb has happened to them, "The dog returns to its own vomit," and "A bathed sow returns to wallowing in the mire." (2 Pt)

"I urge you, brothers, to .watch out for those who create dissensions and obstacles, in opposition to the teaching that you learned;.avoid them.. For such people do not serve our Lord Christ but their own appetites, and by fair and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the innocent. For while your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, I want you to be wise as to what is good, and simple as to what is evil; then the God of peace will quickly crush Satan under your feet." (Rom 16:17-20)



Private Prophecy:

Fr. Stefano Gobbi (1).

The Blessed Virgin Mary said: "….When this Pope [i.e. John Paul II] will have completed the task which Jesus has entrusted to him and I will come down from heaven to receive his sacrifice, all of you will be cloaked in a dense darkness of apostasy, which will then become general.

There will remain faithful only that little remnant which, in these years, by accepting my motherly invitation, has let itself be enfolded in the secure refuge of my Immaculate Heart. And it will be this little faithful remnant, prepared and formed by me, that will have the task of receiving Christ, who will return to you in glory, bringing about in this way the beginning of the new era which awaits you." (Message #449 "The Pope of My Secret"; May 13, 1991 Anniversary of the First Apparition of Fatima)


The Blessed Virgin Mary said: "On the feast of my Immaculate Heart of this Marian Year, consecrated to me, beloved sons, I am calling all of you to enter into the heavenly garden which I have built for you, during these painful and bloody moments of the purification.

.The hour of the great apostasy has come. What has been foretold in Holy Scripture, in the Second letter of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians, is now on the point of coming to pass.

Satan, my Adversary, with snares and by means of his subtle seduction, has succeeded in spreading errors everywhere, under the form of new and more updated interpretations of the truth, and he has led many to choose with full knowledge -- and to live in -- sin, in the deceiving conviction that this is no longer an evil, and even that it is a value and a good.

The times of the general confusion and of the greatest agitation of the spirits has come. Confusion has entered into the souls and the lives of many of my children.

This great apostasy is spreading more, even through the interior of the Catholic Church. Errors are being taught and spread about, while the fundamental truths of the faith, which the authentic Magisterium of the Church has always taught and energetically defended against any heretical deviation whatsoever, are being denied with impunity.

The episcopates are maintaining a strange silence and are no longer reacting. When my Pope [i.e. John Paul II] speaks with courage and reaffirms with force the truths of the Catholic faith, he is no longer listened to and is even publicly criticized and derided. There is a subtle and diabolical tactic, woven in secrecy by Masonry, which is used today against the Holy Father [John Paul II] in order to bring ridicule upon his person and his work and to neutralize his Magisterium.

Victims of the great apostasy are those children of mine who often unknowingly, allow themselves to be carried along by the wave of errors and of evil.

Victims of the great apostasy are many bishops, priests, religious and faithful.

.In these times, in the Catholic Church, there will remain a little remnant who will be faithful to Christ, to the Gospel, and to its entire truth. The little remnant will form a little flock, all guarded in the depths of my Immaculate Heart. This little flock will be made up of those bishops, priests, religious and faithful who will remain strongly united to the Pope [i.e. John Paul II], all gathered together in the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart, in an act of unceasing prayer, of continual immolation, of total offering to prepare the painful way for the second and glorious coming of my Son Jesus..

On this feast of mine in this Marian Year, I address to all those who wish to become part of the little flock the motherly invitation to consecrate themselves to my Heart, to live in intimacy of life with me, to become my courageous apostles in these last times, because the moment when my Immaculate Heart must be glorified before all the Church and before all humanity has come." (Message #384 'The Great Apostasy', June 11, 1988 Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary)


The Blessed Virgin Mary said: "…The great trial has come for the Church, so violated by the evil spirits, so divided in its unity, so darkened in its holiness. See how error has flooded throughout it, error which leads to the loss of the true faith. Apostasy is spreading everywhere.

.A special gift of my Immaculate Heart for these times of yours is the Catechism of the Catholic Church, .which my Pope [i.e. John Paul II] has wished to promulgate, to be as it were his shining last testament. But how many are those pastors who grope about in the mist, become speechless out of fear or compromise, and who no longer defend their flocks from the many rapacious wolves!

Many priestly and consecrated lives have become dried up by impurity, seduced by pleasures and the search for comfort and well-being. The faithful are being drawn in by the enticements of a world which has become pagan, or by the countless sects which are spreading more and more.

The hour of its great trial has above all come for the Church, because it will be shaken by the lack of faith, obscured by apostasy, wounded by betrayal, abandoned by its children, divided by schisms, possessed and dominated by Freemasonry, turned into fertile soil from which will spring up the wicked tree of the man of iniquity, the Antichrist, who will bring his kingdom into its interior…" (Message #486 'The Time of the Great Trial' January 1, 1993).


Louise Starr Tomkiel (1)

October 13, 2003:

Jesus spoke, " My dear pope son [i.e. John Paul II] is worn out. He has more physical complications than you will ever know. He is surrounded by nonbelievers.

Pray for him but pray only for My Will to be done. Pray and assist him in his pain for his work on earth is nearly over.

.Pray for My Church for the one who succeeds him will open wide the doors of the 'Great Schism.' [Benedict XVI succeeded John Paul II]. So many of My priests do not follow Me -- they are not of Me.

All that I taught, all that I command will be readily changed when these men take office. .The one they elect to fill Peter's Chair will change the Mass, teach false doctrine, change Holy Scripture and feed you at a table that which is not of Me. There will be no Sacraments, no Sacramentals and no reminders of Me in the Church. It will be empty.

Now will be the time to go underground. Good priests will be hard to find. Be very careful. Pray and I will assist you. Keep the faith, dear ones, keep the faith and trust in Me."


The Great Schism in the Catholic Church.


Holy Scripture:

"Now the Spirit explicitly says that in the last times some will turn away from the faith by paying attention to deceitful spirits and demonic instructions through the hypocrisy of liars with branded consciences." (1 Tm 4:1-2)


"I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingly power: proclaim the word; be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient; convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching. For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity, will accumulate teachers and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths." (2 Tm 4:1-4)



Fathers of the Church:

St. Cyril of Jerusalem

"But we seek our own sign of His coming; we Churchmen seek a sign proper to the Church. And the Saviour says, And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. If thou hear that bishops advance against bishops, and clergy against clergy, and laity against laity even unto blood, be not troubled; for it has been written before. Heed not the things now happening, but the things which are written; and even though I who teach thee perish, thou shalt not also perish with me; nay, even a hearer may become better than his teacher, and he who came last may be first, since even those about the eleventh hour the Master receives. .If among Apostles there was found treason, dost thou wonder that hatred of brethren is found among bishops? But the sign concerns not only rulers, but the people also; for He says, And because iniquity shall abound, the love of the many shall wax cold. Will any then among those present boast that he entertains friendship unfeigned towards his neighbour? Do not the lips often kiss, and the countenance smile, and the eyes brighten forsooth, while the heart is planning guile, and the man is plotting mischief with words of peace?" (St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Catechetical Lecture XV, Par.7)



Private Prophecy:

Our Lady of Akita (2)

The Blessed Virgin Mary said: ".The work of the devil will infiltrate even 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 ... churches and altars 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 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 be no longer pardon for them. " (Our Lady of Akita, October 13, 1973)


John Leary (1)

August 20, 2004:
Jesus said: "My people, you have seen schism in My Church back at the time of the Reformation when division came in many Protestant Denominations. Today, there are many informal schisms going on with disobedience to what My pope son [i.e. John Paul II] is teaching in upholding My Church laws and My Commandments. You will see a formalized schism coming in My Church as a sign of the tribulation taking place
. There will be another division in My Church between a schismatic church and My faithful remnant. Those, who will remain faithful to Me, will be in the minority. I will describe the schismatic church so that you will be able to recognize it when it happens. .There are three main tenets that will be upheld in the schismatic church. First, they will be supporting a New Age religion which worships the earth, the moon, and many gods and goddesses of the earth. Second, they will teach that fornication, adultery, and masturbation are not mortal sins. That is they will teach that living together heterosexually or homosexually without proper marriage is not sinful. Third, this evil church will take away all reverence for My Blessed Sacrament and say the bread is only a symbol and not My Real Presence.. I am describing this schism because you are already seeing these signs coming into your churches and you should know that this is an evil influence led by the masons in My Church. Pray for your priests, bishops, and cardinals that they remain faithful to My teachings as the apostles taught, and not as some are misinterpreting the Gospels to their own liking. My people need to be strong in your faith by daily prayer and frequent Confession, and visits to My Blessed Sacrament. This evil age will test everyone dearly in what you truly believe."


 March 17, 1999:

Jesus said: "My people, a time is coming when many churches will all be joined in a one world religion. .The Antipope, who will replace Pope John Paul II, will make accommodations to join all religions as one.. Many Traditions of My church will be compromised under the guise of unity. Unifying the Churches will be one more step by the Masons toward one world control. This one world religion will then allow the Antichrist an opportunity to have everyone worship him as a world ruler. .Do not follow either the Antichrist or this Antipope, who will be trying to deceive the people not to have allegiance to Me only. You will see how the New Age movement will draw innocent people into following this one world religion. Do not be fooled, but continue to remain faithful to Me and not these False Witnesses."


April 6, 1999:

Jesus said: "My people, I am showing you this golden globe to indicate how the men of money control your world. Through the various secret societies of world finance, you will soon see their New World Order brought about. This has been planned for many years and soon their plan for takeover will be implemented. They will soon create wars and financial upheavals that will throw the world into a panic of chaos. This will lay the foundation for the coming to power of the Antichrist. As a result of a world depression and a world famine, the United Nations will call for a global government to restore order. During a time of martial law, a one world religion will be imposed which will be a means for religious persecution to force everyone to worship the Beast and take his mark on their body. All those, who refuse this mark, will be outlaws and liable for death. .The Antipope, who will replace John Paul II, will assist in forming this one world religion of false gods. Once the United Nations controls the world, the Antichrist will assume full control and eliminate all of the current leaders. As soon as this Evil One will attain full control, I will come and sift all of these evil ones, as I will cast them into Hell in chains. My comet of chastisement will bring on My triumph over Satan, as I will then prepare the world to be renewed and made ready for My Era of Peace. Have hope, My children, for none of these evil plans will ever come to completion. I will protect My Remnant with My miraculous powers, so have no fear of these evil men. They will be humbled while My Faithful will be exalted."


Louise Starr Tomkiel (1)

April 16, 2002:

Jesus said: " .My beloved remnant children of My Holy Catholic Church: when My dearest son, John Paul II is called to his eternal reward, with God, in Heaven, be prepared for the great schism to take place. and the full attack from evil men to begin the division of My Church on earth. It is in force today but then it will come to full bloom. Remember, however, that the gates of Hell will not prevail against it (My true church --- my faithful remnant).

The false leaders are in high positions already, just waiting to take full charge. A false church will emerge. Pray much for discernment, for these men will speak of love, perform many miracles; they will be of the devil.

The preparations are being readied. My Body and Blood in the Holy Tabernacle is no longer front and center. Statues, the Way of the Cross AND my Crucifix are all being done away with. Kneelers and even pews are gone in some so called churches. The altar is portable and My Church is used as a theatre. This will become the norm once I bring John Paul II home to Me.

The holy priesthood will be open to women --- a sacrilege! Nothing will be sacred. Already the Words I used and passed on to you for Consecration, are being changed. The Words of Scripture are being changed, all My Words. Apostasy, schism in My Church!

The disrespect you see today will grow out of control. My faithful and true priests and remnant children will go underground. My Church WILL remain.

The true ' Bride of Christ' is My Church and My Church is NOT a building but its loving, obedient, faithful people, My followers.

Pray, and pray without ceasing for My son John Paul II, for My good and faithful priests and for My beloved remnant people. Seek My mercy on all mankind. Follow and live My Love. Obey your Master. Hear His voice. I will remain in all who remain in Me.

Seek the conversion of all poor souls for every one is a child of God. I am Savior of ALL! Pray and have no fear of what is to happen. I am your Strength. I've told you I will NOT loose one of My own.

Pray for an increase of faith --- daily. Become as one with Me. Do not only seek My Will but hunger for it in your daily life then, live it !

Again I ask you to pray for all My Church leaders and for them to become daily stronger in their mission for Me and for My people through their teaching, example, love and gentleness. I am separating the sheep from the goats but beware of goats in sheeps clothing. Pray!!!"

April 1, 2005:

Jesus your God spoke, "My children in Scripture I told you I would take many of my little ones home before the great chastisement begins. Soon you will hear of the passing from earth to Heaven, one more of My great Church leaders.

They return to Me to pray for all My dear remnant that is left behind. I assure you that My beloved Pope, John Paul II, died in the arms of Mary, Joseph and Me, your Jesus. He is safe now and free of all pain. He will be known among My precious remnant as My last great Pope.

The College of Cardinals will now select a man to fill Peter's Chair. They will vote almost unanimously and very quickly for John Paul II's successor. [n.b. This occurred on April 19, 2005 with the election of Pope Benedict XVI.]

.Now the great schism, the great apostasy will break wide open.. Without My strong leader My Church will seemingly collapse. My true Church will soon be forced underground for many false leaders will now appear. The Freemasons in My fold will have complete control for the number of true priests is few.

There will be canonizations of souls not of Me and women will have more freedom, which is also not of Me. The Mass too will change and I will be passed farther into oblivion. My Church will become secular.

Beware and be rooted firmly in your faith. My children will watch with horror as My true Church degenerates. This time I predicted many years ago. The hour has now come for the freemasons in My Church are now free to carry out all the plans they have been preparing for hundreds of years. They are now in top positions from priests to cardinals for today, My leader, the one these freemasons abhorred, is no longer among them.

I will give these evil men and women time to enact these plans until My Church is all but destroyed. Then I will come to the rescue of My own, My faithful remnant. I will renew My Church and My children who held out till the end. I will reward you and punish all others for eternity.

Pray now, dear children, for much strength, deeper faith and great trust in Me. I will see you through it all and I will never leave you. Abundant graces I send you and I place My peace in your hearts.

Amen --- yes, now the action will begin, the tribulation worsen as the justice of God falls upon earth and all its inhabitants."

November 26, 2001:

Jesus said: A time of grave apostasy and schism is about to descend upon My Holy Church. Very, very, very few will decide to follow Me, to remain with Me. Hatred and panic will grow until the earth is black as coal. The only light that will remain will be in the hearts and souls of My loving, faithful, true remnant.

The events leading to these dramatic events is about to climax. Your ONLY hope, ONLY strength, is through prayer, consecration to Us, total repentance, forgiveness and obedience to the Will and Commands of Our God and Father.

Not only is Scripture being fulfilled but each of you is living it, seeing it but not all are believing it.

In a short time, all Our visitations to earth will cease (public visitations by Jesus, Mary, etc.) however, private revelations will continue. I will continue to warn and instruct My precious remnant; those who are completely Mine by their own free-will, heartfelt choice.

Children, the days are numbered; the time is near; the hours are short. Tribulations, heartache, fear will fill your hearts and all your days for the Father's wrath is at hand. Only your giving of your free-will, in love to Us, can help you ---- you as an individual for nation will now fight against nation with the intent to annihilate ALL creatures, all mankind, the entire earth. I will come forth then, with My Army, headed by Holy Michael, and we will destroy ALL evil and We will conquer but not one stone will stand upon a stone.

We will come, or not one soul could remain on earth. We will triumph. Cling to Us and to one another as never before. Join in prayer throughout the day, even over the miles you can and you must join and unite your hearts to Us for peace, strength and to be lead by Us. We will direct you. Listen to Us. My remnant people, My remnant church WILL NEVER PASS AWAY!!!

Stop now and pray. Reflect on My Words, My teachings, My Love ---- love for all mankind, all creation. Obey all I've taught you, every word that comes from the mouth of Our God for He speaks only truth and all will be as He has stated. You never know when you may hear or read the last message addressed to you.

PRAY!!! . PRAY!!! . PRAY!!! . The hour is nigh! Be totally prepared, My children. Do not fear ----PREPARE in soul, body and mind.


The Whore of Babylon

"Then one of the seven angels who were holding the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come here. I will show you the judgment on the great harlot who lives near the many waters. The kings of the earth have had intercourse with her, and the inhabitants of the earth became drunk on the wine of her harlotry." Then he carried me away in spirit to a deserted place where I saw a woman seated on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names, with seven heads and ten horns. The woman was wearing purple and scarlet and adorned with gold, precious stones, and pearls. She held in her hand a gold cup that was filled with the abominable and sordid deeds of her harlotry. On her forehead was written a name, which is a mystery, "Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth." I saw that the woman was drunk on the blood of the holy ones and on the blood of the witnesses to Jesus. When I saw her I was greatly amazed. The angel said to me, "Why are you amazed? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, the beast with the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast that you saw existed once but now exists no longer. It will come up from the abyss and is headed for destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world shall be amazed when they see the beast, because it existed once but exists no longer, and yet it will come again. Here is a clue for one who has wisdom. The seven heads represent seven hills upon which the woman sits. They also represent seven kings: five have already fallen, one still lives, and the last has not yet come, and when he comes he must remain only a short while. The beast that existed once but exists no longer is an eighth king, but really belongs to the seven and is headed for destruction. The ten horns that you saw represent ten kings who have not yet been crowned; they will receive royal authority along with the beast for one hour. They are of one mind and will give their power and authority to the beast. They will fight with the Lamb, but the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and king of kings, and those with him are called, chosen, and faithful." Then he said to me, "The waters that you saw where the harlot lives represent large numbers of peoples, nations, and tongues. The ten horns that you saw and the beast will hate the harlot; they will leave her desolate and naked; they will eat her flesh and consume her with fire. For God has put it into their minds to carry out his purpose and to make them come to an agreement to give their kingdom to the beast until the words of God are accomplished. The woman whom you saw represents the great city that has sovereignty over the kings of the earth." (Rv 17)

In order to understand much of Revelation 17, one must consider it together with the other prophetic texts and certain private prophecy.


The Woman is the Great City of Rome

Frequently in Holy Scripture, unfaithfulness to God is represented metaphorically by sexual immorality or harlotry. In Revelation 17, it is clear that Rome is the great city, the harlot.

Ancient Babylon was located in Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. The word 'Babylon' is Greek for the Hebrew word, 'Babel'. Its native name, 'Babili', means 'gate of the gods'.

Holy Scripture reveals that false religion began in the land of Babylon. It was there that Nimrod and his subjects built a great tower in a presumptuous effort to create an urban culture apart from God. The once great city of Babylon, became a symbol of evil, power, materialism, and cruelty, centered around astrology and sun worship.  Such pagan worship surfaced later in a number of parts of the world including the ancient Egyptian and Roman Empires.

In the days of the early Christian persecutions, 'Babylon' was the code word used for pagan Ancient Rome. St. Peter ended his first epistle by telling his audience that the Church in Rome sends you its greetings. In the DRV it reads: "The church that is in Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you. And so doth my son, Mark.". (1 Pt 5:13)

At the time of the writing of the First Epistle of Peter, Babylon on the Euphrates lay in ruins. Further, St. Peter was never in Babylon, Egypt, so he had to be writing from Rome. In all probability, he was hiding underground to avoid detection by the Romans at the time. In the ancient writing, The History of the Church, II, Ch 15, Eusebius speaking of the writings of Pope St. Clement and of Papais, confirms that St. Peter was in Rome at the time that 1Pe 5:13 was composed, and that he used the word 'Babylon' as a code word for 'Rome'.

In the writing, 'Upon This Rock' we demonstrated that St. Peter was the first Bishop of Rome and the first Pope of the Catholic Church. We presented evidence of this in the writings of the following Fathers of the Church: St. Ignatious of Antioch, St. Irenaeus, Tertullian, St. Clement of Alexandria; and the historian, Eusebius. Please refer to that writing for such discussion.

Furthermore, there is clear evidence that the city of Rev 17 is Rome, as Rome is situated upon seven hills.

In the context of Rev 17, the great city of Rome appears to represent much more than simply an isolated city. Verse 15 reads: " The waters that you saw where the harlot lives represent large numbers of peoples, nations, and tongues." While verse 18 reads: "The woman whom you saw represents the great city that has sovereignty over the kings of the earth." The 'great city' (Rome) appears to represent the capital city of a much larger pagan geographical area, e.g. the Revived Roman Empire in the European Union, and subsequently, the entire world under a one-world government (Dn 2:33, Rv 13:3; 17:15)..

Our Lady of LaSalette stated that Rome would lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist.(2) A seat is the center of authority or capital of a governmental body. In Rev 17:18 we see that the great city has sovereignty over the kings of the earth. In verses 12 and 13, it is stated that: "The ten horns that you saw represent ten kings who have not yet been crowned; they will receive royal authority along with the beast for one hour. They are of one mind and will give their power and authority to the beast."

Ancient Rome was the great city that had sovereignty over all of the kings of the world known to St. John when he wrote Revelation. Rome will be the great city of the revived Roman Empire (i.e. the European Union) that will be ruled by Antichrist, and will have sovereignty over all of the kings of the earth at that time.

It is worthy of note that the ancient city of Jerusalem is a 'Type'(3) of the contemporary city of Rome, its 'Antitype'. Consider the following:


Ancient Jerusalem was the center of God's people, the Jewish synagogue. As of this writing, Rome is the center of God's people, the Catholic Church.(10)


Ancient Jerusalem rejected Jesus; and as discussed herein, Rome will reject not only Jesus but His Mystical Body, the Church. (1 Cor 12:27)


In a number of places within the Old Testament, Jerusalem is referred to as a harlot due to her unfaithfulness to God (e.g. Ez 16:1-3,26; Jer 2:1-2,17-20; Is 1:1,21; Jer 3:1-2,6-8; Jer 5:1,5-7; Ez 23:1-5,11,17-19). In the New Testament, Rome is referred to as a harlot due to her unfaithfulness to God (e.g. Rv 17:1,15-16; Rv 19:2).


As we see in Lev 21:9, the punishment for harlotry is burning by fire: " And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by playing the harlot, profanes her father; she shall be burned with fire". Jerusalem was desolated by fire by the Romans in 70 A.D. (Mt 24:1-2, Lk 21:5-6); and Rome will be desolated by fire, also (Dn 9:24-27 & Rv 18:8,17).




The European Union is the Revived Roman Empire

You will recall that in second chapter of Daniel, Daniel was explaining the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar. Many scholars hold that with respect to the image of the statue in his dream, the legs of iron represent the ancient Roman Empire, and the feet partly of iron and partly of clay represent the revived Roman Empire in the form of a loose confederation of countries. Many believe that the European Union, which came into existence formally during 1992, is such revived Roman Empire. Also worthy of note, are the ten toes of iron and clay. Some see a correlation between the number of toes and the ten kings of Dan 7:24, Rev 17 and the ten kings of the revived Roman Empire spoken of St. Cyril of Jerusalem:

"But this aforesaid Antichrist is to come when the times of the Roman empire shall have been fulfilled, and the end of the world is now drawing near. There shall rise up together ten kings of the Romans, reigning in different parts perhaps, but all about the same time; and after these an eleventh, the Antichrist, who by his magical craft shall seize upon the Roman power; and of the kings who reigned before him, three he shall humble, and the remaining seven he shall keep in subjection to himself. At first indeed he will put on a show of mildness (as though he were a learned and discreet person), and of soberness and benevolence: and by the lying signs and wonders of his magical deceit having beguiled the Jews, as though he were the expected Christ, he shall afterwards be characterized by all kinds of crimes of inhumanity and lawlessness, so as to outdo all unrighteous and ungodly men who have gone before him displaying against all men, but especially against us Christians, a spirit murderous and most cruel, merciless and crafty. And after perpetrating such things for three years and six months only, he shall be destroyed by the glorious second advent from heaven of the only-begotten Son of God, our Lord and Savior Jesus, the true Christ, who shall slay Antichrist with the breath of His mouth, and shall deliver him over to the fire of hell."……(St. Cyril, Archbishop of Jerusalem; Lecture XV; 315-386 A.D.).

The premier image of ancient Babylon was rebuilt in Europe in 1998. Those who have rejected God, as their predecessor Nimrod did millenia before, have built an EU parliamentary building in Strasbourg, France. It is named the Louise Weiss Building and its centerpiece is an enormous replica of the Tower of Babel.. The Tower of the Louise Weiss Building is designed to resemble incomplete construction, and closely resembles the 16th century painting of the Tower of Babel by Pieter Brueghel the Elder in which the construction of the Tower was incomplete. The secular press has nicknamed the EU building, 'The Tower of Eurobabel'.

Additionally, there are reports including pictures, that the EU has circulated posters of a painting of the Tower of Babel, with 12 inverted stars above it and the caption: "Europe - Many Tongues, One Voice". Inverted stars are Satanic symbols.

We see further evidence of Revelation 17 being realized in the European Union in the various other symbols that it has embraced. .The image of the mythical woman 'Europa riding the beast, Minos' is prevalent in the EU's (or its member countries';) currency, postage stamps, official logos, statues, stationery, magazine covers, etc. It is common to see the woman riding the beast in these official representations dressed in purple.


The Continuous Offering is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

Chapters 2, 7,8,9,11 and 12 of Daniel appear to be narratives that are interrelated with much of the same details being told differently. These verses together with certain verses of Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 provide additional insight into understanding the book of Revelation.

These books of the Bible address the reign of the Antichrist and his persecution of the Church. It should be noted that certain of these predictions were satisfied by Antiochus IV of Syria (a Type of the, Antichrist) who desecrated the Temple of Jerusalem (167-165 B.C.), installed a statue of the pagan god, Zeus in it, and suspended the daily sacrifice. As Fr. Most(5) points out in his Commentary on Daniel(6), not all of the prophecies were satisfied by Antiochus. Antiochus did not set himself up above all gods, but worshipped Zeus (2 Thes 2:1-5, Dan 8:11, Dan 11:36-37 et al); and there was no expiation of guilt after Antiochus bringing everlasting justice (Dn 7:27-28).

We addressed certain of these mysterious verses of Daniel in the writings: 'Must the Reconstruction of the Temple of Jerusalem Precede the Second Coming of Jesus Christ?' and 'The Abomination of Desolation'. In the first writing we pointed out that Fr. Most taught that parts of Daniel (i.e. chapters 7 -12) were written in apocalyptic; that apocalyptic passages were written in mysterious allegories; and in some cases were written after the fact. Fr. Most indicated that certain of the verses of Daniel involve both the past and the future. Indeed Daniel is told by the angel Gabriel that certain parts of his vision pertain to the End Times. It is important to note also that , Fr. Most indicated that certain verses involve multiple fulfillment prophecy(7).

An example is the enigmatic Daniel 9: 24-27, which reads: "Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and for your holy city: Then transgression will stop and sin will end, guilt will be expiated, Everlasting justice will be introduced, vision and prophecy ratified, and a most holy will be anointed. Know and understand this: From the utterance of the word that Jerusalem was to be rebuilt until one who is anointed and a leader, there shall be seven weeks.

During sixty-two weeks it shall be rebuilt, With streets and trenches, in time of affliction. After the sixty-two weeks an anointed shall be cut down when he does not possess the city; And the people of a leader who will come shall destroy the sanctuary. Then the end shall come like a torrent; until the end there shall be war, the desolation that is decreed. For one week he shall make a firm compact with the many; Half the week he shall abolish sacrifice and oblation; On the temple wing shall be the horrible abomination until the ruin that is decreed is poured out upon the horror."

In the writing, 'The Abomination of Desolation' we wrote at length about how the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the continuing sacrifice; how it will be suspended by the Antichrist, and how the holy words of consecration will be changed preventing transubstantiation of bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and rendering them desolate of Our Lord's presence.. Of particular note are the messages given by Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi and by Jesus to John Leary to that effect.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the continuous re-enactment of the sacrifice of Jesus on Calvary, and as such is offered continuously throughout the world to Our Heavenly Father on our behalf. It has withheld the wrath of God for 2,000 years.


The Catholic Church Will Be Driven Underground

As we have seen above the Whore of Babylon will become manifest throughout the world in the form of Freemasonry with the Antichrist as its head. It will become prevalent within the Church in the form of Ecclesiastical Masonry.  Upon the death of Pope John Paul II, the apostate Freemasons will seize control of the Church, and the Great Schism will occur shortly thereafter. Lead by the False Prophet, the majority of the Church will apostatize, and will no longer be a part of the Catholic Church at that time. The former Catholics who have apostatized will join others from other religions in a New Age one-world religion.(8)  As discussed above, there is nothing new about such New Age religion.  Its pagan belief system is centered around the worship of the earth, moon, and the many gods and goddesses of the earth.  In essence, the pagan belief system of ancient Babylon will be embraced by many during that time.

.At such time, the Faithful Remnant Catholic Church will be driven underground by the apostate Whore of Babylon, who under the leadership of the Antichrist will persecute the Church throughout the world.. In essence, the Catholic Church will return to the catacombs, from whence she came.


Drunk on the Blood of the Holy Ones and on the Blood of the Witnesses to Jesus.

Once again, the Catholic Church will be driven underground by the apostate Whore of Babylon, who under the leadership of the Antichrist will persecute the Church throughout the world.

Consider the following: It was in Ancient Babylon, known for its evil, power, materialism, and cruelty, that the people of God were imprisoned and persecuted for 70 years. It was in Ancient Rome (the Babylon of St. Peter's time and known for it evil, power, immorality, and cruelty) that the people of God were persecuted, crucified and fed to the lions for about 300 years. It will be the Revived Roman Empire in the European Union, which will be characterized by its evil, power, immorality and cruelty that will persecute, torture and murder certain of the people of God at the time of the Antichrist.(9) Those who timely answer the call of their guardian angel and flee to the refuges beforehand will be fully-protected.(4)


Rome Has Never Been Destroyed as the Church Has Always Been There

Cardinal John Henry Newman gave a very interesting Advent homily entitled 'Lecture III: The City of Antichrist'. In it he identified the great city of Rome as the harlot to come, and identified some very interesting things about historical Rome and this prophecy.

He pointed out how although the Roman Empire was burned partially by Nero; and overrun by Barbarians, divided and looted, the city of Rome was never destroyed. He explains the reason for this as follows:

"…why has not Rome been destroyed hitherto? How was it that the barbarians left it? [Ancient] Babylon sunk under the avenger whom GOD brought against it -- Rome has not: why is this? for if there has been a something to procrastinate the vengeance due to Rome hitherto, peradventure that obstacle may act again and again, and stay the uplifted hand of divine wrath till the end come. The cause seems to be simply this, that when the barbarians came down, GOD had a people in that city. [Ancient] Babylon was a mere prison of the Church; Rome had received her as a guest. The Church dwelt in Rome, and while her children suffered in the heathen city from the barbarians, so again they were there the life and the salt of the city where they suffered.

Christians understood this at the time, and availed themselves of their position. They remembered Abraham's intercession for Sodom, and the gracious announcement made him, that had there been ten righteous men therein, it would have been saved.

When the city was worsted, threatened, and at length overthrown, the Pagans had cried out that Christianity was the cause of this. They said they had always flourished under their idols, and that these idols and devils (gods as they called them) were displeased at them for the numbers among them who had been converted to the faith of the Gospel, and had in consequence deserted them, given them over to their enemies, and brought vengeance upon them. On the other hand, they scoffed at the Christians, saying, in effect, "Where is now your GOD? Why does He not save you? You are not better off than we;"- like the impenitent thief, "If Thou be the CHRIST, save Thyself and us;" or, like the multitude, "If He be the SON of GOD, let Him come down from the Cross." This was during the time of one of the most celebrated bishops and doctors of the Church,
St. Augustine; and he replied to their challenge. He replied to them, and to his brethren also, some of whom were offended and shocked that such calamities should have happened to a city which had become Christian. He pointed to the cities which had already sinned and been visited, and showed that they had altogether perished, whereas Rome was still preserved. Here then he said was the very fulfillment of the promise of GOD, announced to Abraham; for the sake of the Christians in it, Rome was chastised, not overthrown utterly..

Historical facts support St. Augustine's view of things: GOD showed visibly, not only provided secretly, that the Church should be the salvation of the city. The fierce conqueror, Alaric, who first came against it, exhorted his troops, "to respect the Churches of the Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul, as holy and inviolable sanctuaries;" and he gave orders that a quantity of plate consecrated to St. Peter should be removed into his Church from the place where it had been discovered.

Again, fifty years afterwards, when Attila was advancing against the city, the bishop of Rome of the day, St. Leo, formed one of a deputation of three, who went out to meet him, and was successful in arresting his purpose. A few years afterwards, Genseric, the most savage of the barbarian conquerors, appeared before the defenseless city. The same fearless prelate went out to meet him at the head of his clergy, and though he did not avail to save the city from pillage, yet he gained a promise that the unresisting multitude should be spared, the buildings protected from fire, and the captives from torture.

Thus from the Goth, Hun, and Vandal, did the Christian Church shield the guilty city in which she dwelt. What a wonderful rule of GOD'S providence is herein displayed, which occurs daily! the Church sanctifies yet suffers with the world, sharing its sufferings yet lightening them. In the case before us, it has (if we may humbly say it,) suspended, to this day, the vengeance destined to fall upon her who was drunk with the blood of the martyrs of JESUS.
What vengeance has never fallen; it is still suspended; nor can reason be given why Rome has not fallen under the rule of GOD'S general dealings with His rebellious creatures, and suffered (according to the prophecy), the fullness of GOD'S wrath begun in her, except that a Christian Church is still in that city, sanctifying it, interceding for it, saving it. That part of the Christian Church, (alas!) has in process of time become infected with the sins of Rome itself, and learned to be ambitious and cruel after the fashion of those who possessed the place aforetimes. Yet if it were what some would make it, it were as reprobate as heathen Rome itself, what stays the judgment long ago begun? Why does not the Avenging Arm, which made its first stroke ages since, deal its second and its third, till the city has fallen? Why is not Rome as Sodom and Gomorrah, if there be no righteous men in it?…".


In view of the comments of Cardinal Newman and the prophecies discussed herein, when the Catholic Church is driven from Rome by the Whore of Babylon, the great city of Rome will have sealed her fate. The wrath of God will fall upon Rome as it did to its Old Testament 'Type', Ancient Babylon.

With respect to Ancient Babylon Isaiah tells us in 21:9: "Fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the images of her gods he has shattered to the ground." Similarly, with respect to Rome the Antitypical Babylon of Revelation we read of its destiny in Rev. 18: "And he called out with a mighty voice, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! It has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt of every foul spirit, a haunt of every foul and hateful bird


And What Was the Fate of Ancient Babylon?

"Howl, for the day of the LORD is near; as destruction from the Almighty it comes. Therefore all hands fall helpless, the bows of the young men fall from their hands. Every man's heart melts in terror. Pangs and sorrows take hold of them, like a woman in labor they writhe; They look aghast at each other, their faces aflame. Lo, the day of the LORD comes, cruel, with wrath and burning anger; To lay waste the land and destroy the sinners within it! The stars and constellations of the heavens send forth no light; The sun is dark when it rises, and the light of the moon does not shine. Thus I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their guilt. I will put an end to the pride of the arrogant, the insolence of tyrants I will humble. I will make mortals more rare than pure gold, men, than gold of Ophir. For this I will make the heavens tremble and the earth shall be shaken from its place, At the wrath of the LORD of hosts on the day of his burning anger. Like a hunted gazelle, or a flock that no one gathers, Every man shall turn to his kindred and flee to his own land. Everyone who is caught shall be run through; to a man, they shall fall by the sword. Their infants shall be dashed to pieces in their sight; their houses shall be plundered and their wives ravished. I am stirring up against them the Medes, who think nothing of silver and take no delight in gold. The fruit of the womb they shall not spare, nor shall they have eyes of pity for children. And Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the glory and pride of the Chaldeans, Shall be overthrown by God like Sodom and like Gomorrah. She shall never be inhabited, nor dwelt in, from age to age; The Arab shall not pitch his tent there, nor shepherds couch their flocks. But wildcats shall rest there and owls shall fill the houses; There ostriches shall dwell, and satyrs shall dance. Desert beasts shall howl in her castles, and jackals in her luxurious palaces. Her time is near at hand and her days shall not be prolonged. (Is 13:6-22)

"As you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, nor shall its sovereignty be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand for ever. " (Dn 2:43-44)


.Just as false religion began with Ancient Babylon, all forms of false religion will end with the 'Antitype' Babylon of Revelation, the European Union/One-World New Age Religion under the Antichrist.

So, who is the Whore of Babylon seated in the city of seven hills, Rome? As we have seen above, the Revived Roman Empire has been realized in the European Union; the Catholic Church in Rome will be overrun by the Apostate Freemasons; the true Remnant Catholic Church will be driven underground; and Rome will become the seat of the Antichrist, who will rule over the earth from there. Clearly, the Whore of Babylon will be those who reject the Catholic Faith, follow the False Prophet, accept the Mark of the Beast (selling their souls to Satan), follow the Antichrist and persecute the Church..


"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
(Mt 16:18)


Prepared with the grace of God
By Ben J. Verdina, June 2008 (Edited September, 2016)



An Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

I, (your name), a faithless sinner-- renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day, for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.


An Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Abyss of Mercy and Source of every grace and blessing, I consecrate and unite myself to You without exception or reserve - all that I am and all that I have, both temporal and spiritual, past present and future, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your Mother.

I leave myself entirely at Your disposal with complete confidence in Your Mercy and Love and I beg You to look upon this offering of my nothingness before You and to use me for Your own glory, for the honor of Your Mother and for the salvation of souls. Help me to seek You alone in all things. Hide me in the shelter of Your Most Sacred Heart and be my only Consolation and Refuge.

Grant me the graces I need to joyfully accept Your Cross daily, to lead a holy life and to die a holy death in Your service. Help me to trust completely in Your Mercy and Love and never to fear to humbly throw myself before the infinite Ocean of mercy which is Your Most Sacred Heart, especially at those times when I may fail in my faithfulness in Your service. Through this weak and miserable instrument, may Your Mercy, Love, glory and power shine forth. Above all, set my poor heart on fire with the Flame of Love which burns in Your Most Sacred Heart, and teach me how to return love for Love. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on me - for I place all my trust in You.


How To Save Your Children

During one of the cenacles which Fr. Gobbi held in the United States, he was urged by many concerned people to ask Our Lady specifically what could be done to save the youth from the seductions of the world which were leading many of them astray and causing them to leave the Church. Our Lady gave Fr. Gobbi this definite and final solution to console the parents who are so concerned about the salvation of their children:

Pray the Rosary !

Every time you pray the Rosary say: "With this Rosary I bind all my children to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.".

In doing so, Our Lady promised "to see to their souls.".





The messages and visions through these visionaries have yet-to-be-approved by the Church. In the case of Fr. Stefano Gobbi, his messages carry several Imprimaturs from many cardinals,  archbishops and bishops.

Also, Our Lord provides a vision to John Leary in advance of each of his messages.



The message of Our Lady of LaSalette and Our Lady of Akita have been approved by the Church as worthy of belief.



This concept is discussed by Fr. William G. Most (see 8 below) as follows in referring to the Typical sense:

In this the writer uses an event, a person, or an action to foreshadow something that is to come later. The original person or thing or event is called the 'type', and the later person or thing to which it refers is called the 'antitype'. The existence of this typical sense in a given passage can be determined only through revelation, which is interpreted for us by the Church. Thus, for example, Isaac being offered in sacrifice is a type of Christ."

Also refer to:

Types, Antitypes and Shadows



 .Signs to leave for the refuges: On October 10, 2002 Jesus told John Leary: "…I have told you in the past when you see a world famine with people killing over food; a schism in My Church; and mandatory chips in the hand being forced on people, then call on Me and I will send your guardian angel to guide you to a safe haven. There will be interim refuges at first for immediate help. Then you will be drawn to final refuges of My Blessed Mother’s apparition sites, places of holy ground, or caves. It is those, who stay behind in their homes or other places, that could be caught and possibly martyred. So do not be stubborn about waiting too long to leave or you may face capture by the evil ones."

Those who answer the call from their guardian angel and flee to the refuges immediately will be fully-protected during the persecution of the Christians during the Great Tribulation. Refer to 'To the Refuges on Wings of Eagles'.



Complete Biography of Fr. William G. Most :

Fr. Most held doctorates in both classical languages and theology. For over 40 years, beginning in the 1940's, he taught undergraduates at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa. Then at the end of the 1980's, while in his own mid-70's, Fr. Most moved to northern Virginia to take a position on the faculty of the Notre Dame Institute, a Pontifical institute offering a Masters Degree in religious studies.

He was the author of twelve scholarly and popular books and a host of articles covering such topics as grace, Scriptural interpretation, the role of Mary in the redemption, and many other topics, Fr. Most was internationally recognized as one of the premier faithful Catholic theologians of our time. His theological breakthroughs on difficult questions regarding grace, free will and the prerogatives of Mary are already legendary.

Fr. Most died in January of 1999 at the age of 84. He had spent well over sixty of those years in direct, active and faithful service to the Church for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.

The MOST Theological Library



In his Commentary on Daniel, Fr. William G. Most explains that this citation of Daniel represents an example of multiple fulfillment prophecy, and that it refers to both the past and the future. See footnote 9 below for additional information.



In Chapter 5: 'Multiple Fulfillment' of Fr. Most's writing entitled: "Free From All Error: Authorship, Inerrancy, Historicity of Scripture, Church Teaching, and Modern Scripture Scholars" he states:

"A remarkable phenomenon appears in a number of places in Scripture. Oddly, it has been little noticed by scholars. It seems that prophecies can have more than one fulfillment…"



During the Pontificate of John Paul II, the Vatican considered the New Age religion a serious threat to the Faith and published Jesus Christ the Bearer of the Water of Life refuting it.



Regarding the persecution of the Church during the Great Tribulation see: Dan 7:7-28; 8:17-26; 9:24-27; 11:31-33; Rev 13:7-17; 16:6; 17:6; 18:24 and 20:4.



The Catechism of the Catholic Church states in paragraph 838: "The Church knows that she is joined in many ways to the baptized who are honored by the name of Christian, but do not profess the Catholic faith in its entirety or have not preserved unity or communion under the successor of Peter. Those who believe in Christ and have been properly baptized are put in a certain, although imperfect, communion with the Catholic Church.
