A couple of quick things…
Sometime last decade my son introduced me to the fabulous sandwiches to be had at Chick Fil-A…and the best service people in fast food. But just a few weeks ago I discovered two important things I did not know about the franchise. The first is their “IceDream Cone.” It is fantastic…tastes almost exactly like my homemade recipe. I have had one large ice cream cone from there every day since I discovered it (except, of course, on Sunday when they are closed to honor Our Lord and give their employees a universal day of rest. The second is that they have the BEST macaroni and cheese out there, bar none. Just thought I would give you some news you can use.
Our old friend, Dan Lynch, is in the midst of his summer appeal to support his ministries. Dan is one of my favorite people in the world and a great friend of this site. He has worked tirelessly for decades to promote devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, Jesus King of All Nations and Our Lady of America. A retired judge, he is steadfast in the faith and works with real passion to promote it throughout this country and the world. I deeply admire him. If you have a little extra, I would deeply appreciate it if you would help him to meet his goal.
We are less than a week away from what I consider one of the most important spiritual events of my lifetime. Rather than tell you about it myself, I reprint here Fr. Richard Heilman’s article from his Roman Catholic Man website, which calls everyone to participate in the 54-day Novena for Our Nation supported by The Holy League:
St. John Bosco Told Us This Year Would Happen
I wrote the following in January of this year …
Well known is St. John Bosco’s “dream of the two columns” where he foresaw the future difficulties of the Church, envisioned as a ship on stormy seas. Several popes strive to moor the Church and anchor it between two columns which arose amid the dangerous waters. The columns symbolized the two devotions to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and to Mary Immaculate, the Help of Christians. Calm and peace for the Church is won only when one of the popes finally succeeds in anchoring the Church between the two columns.
Another St. John Bosco dream/prophecy is less-known, which can shed light on interpreting the dream of the two columns.
The dream/prophecy ends as follows:
“There shall yet come a violent hurricane. Iniquity is at an end, sin shall cease, and before two full moons shall have shone in the month of flowers, the rainbow of peace shall appear on earth … Throughout the world a sun so bright shall shine as never seen since the flames of the Cenacle until today, nor shall it be seen again until the end of time.”
Here’s an interesting insight that will blow you away …
This year, there is a rare occurrence of two full moons in the same month … two of these in the same year. When this happens, in any month, the second full moon, in that month, is referred to as a “blue moon.”
Get this …
On January 31, 2018, a super rare event will occur. This will be a “Super, Blue, Blood Moon.” “Super” because the moon is near to the earth. “Blue” because it is the second in a month. “Blood” because it will also be a lunar eclipse.
Okay, that’s pretty cool. But here’s the kicker. January 31 is the Feast of St. John Bosco. Is God highlighting St. John Bosco?
Wait, it get’s better.
Remember that I said there are two Blue Moon events in one year? Want to know when the second one is?
The second Blue Moon will occur in March, which contains the first day of Spring … you know, Spring … when flowers begin to bloom … “and before two full moons shall have shone in the month of flowers.” -St. John Bosco.
The Blue Moon in March occurs on March 31. What’s significant about that date? It coincides with Holy Saturday, which commemorates Our Lord’s descent into Hades and the Harrowing of Hell.
Here is what I am writing now …
March 31 was also the final day of Nineveh 90 for Life, when we saw tens of thousands of God-fearing souls make their Marian Consecration. It was also the day chosen to announce/launch Rosary Coast to Coast.
And, it was also the day the Vatican reported the following …
“As the sun set on Holy Saturday, a symbol of our Easter hope in the Resurrection appeared over St. Peter’s Basilica.” -Vatican News
Recall Bosco’s dream: “before two full moons shall have shone in the month of flowers, the rainbow of peace shall appear on earth.” Literally, as the sun set, just moments before the 2nd of the two moons in the month of flowers (Spring) appeared, a spectacular rainbow appeared above the Vatican.
“There shall yet come a violent hurricane.” Of course, all of this was preceded by three monster hurricanes of historic proportions in 2017, the last of which was named, “Maria.”
What then about this? “Throughout the world a sun so bright shall shine as never seen since the flames of the Cenacle until today, nor shall it be seen again until the end of time.”
After 100 years of Satan’s unbinding, as prophesied by Pope Leo XIII, we are now seeing an “historic light” being shown on evil that had been, up until now, allowed to move unabated under the cover of darkness, and is now being radically revealed and called into question.
Even Pope Benedict held that this 100 years, most likely, began with Our Lady of Fatima’s warning in 1917 and would conclude in 2017, as he said this in 2010 …
“May the seven years which separate us from the centenary of the apparitions hasten the fulfillment of the prophecy of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to the glory of the Most Holy Trinity“. (Homily of His Holiness Benedict XVI, Esplanade of the Shrine of Our Lady of Fátima Thursday, 13 May 2010)
It is more than interesting that the volcano of exposés (historic light) erupted with Harvey Weinstein on October 5, 2017. This was just two days before the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (and the conclusion of the 54 day Novena for Our Nation), and just nine days (a novena of days) before the 100th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun in Fatima.
Now, Hollywood – Yes! Hollywood! – is standing against the sexualization and objectification of women! WOW!
Add to this the exposés (historic light) on corruption and collusion occurring within the ruling class; the cultural elites of politics and media. This “swamp” is being drained at an alarming rate.
Now the Church herself is being exposed by this “historic light.”
Judge Louis D. Brandeis is often quoted in situations such as this: “Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.”
I believe this “historic light” is what St. John Bosco’s dream is pointing to when he wrote, “…a sun so bright shall shine as never seen since the flames of the Cenacle until today.”
Consider how far we have fallen into paganism in our times. Consider the worst genocide – abortion – in all of human history. Consider marriage redefined for the first time in all of civilization. Consider the “normalization” of corruption and collusion for gaining political power. Consider the efforts to “normalize” sodomy, even among leaders in our Church. All of these, and more, are being exposed as the horror that they are, just in the past few months since the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, in the centennial year of Fatima.
Recall that I alluded to the September 23, 2017 Revelation 12 sign. In the book of Revelation, it is interesting to note that this “sign” marked Satan being “thrown down.” This occurs precisely as the 100 years of Satan’s unbinding comes to an end. This sign is followed by the passage that says,
“Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.” -Revelations 12:7-9
“The dragon and his angels fought back.” Look at the fierce battle being waged all around us, as the forces of death and darkness are panicked as they see their entrenched evil threatened.
As Revelations 12:12 says, “…for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” Secular Satanism, as Matt Walsh refers to it, is calling upon every worldly minion and every source of influence, in one of the most aggressive campaigns to retain all of the ground they have gained, up to now. But, their evil empire is crumbling before their eyes, and they know it. They. Are. Panicked.
What Is Our Role?
As this historic, epic battle is being waged all around us, we are called upon to be Mary’s Mighty Warriors! This is a battle to regain the surrendered ground of the supernatural, so we must engage as “supernaturalized warriors” wielding “supernatural weapons.”
We are “supernaturalized” when we are completely loyal to Divine Revelation – Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. We simply cannot break from this, even in the smallest way. God needs “loyal and trusted” soldiers (Matthew 5: 17-19).
We are supernaturalized when we seek the amazing gift of purity found in the Sacrament of Confession.
The supernatural weapons begin with frequent Communion and Adoration. Recall the two pillars in St. John Bosco’s dream. That means the other supernatural weapon for this battle is the ROSARY. The Church, which is comprised of it’s members, must moor themselves to the Eucharist and the Rosary, in this historic, epic battle.
This is a Goliath of evil we are facing in 2018. In the culture, leading up to the appointment of a new Supreme Court Justice and as we get nearer to the midterm elections. In the Church, as the homosexual underbelly is exposed. We can recoil in despair, or we can have the hope that this “historic light” will bring a new era of peace. Now is the time to put on our supernatural armor and pick up our supernatural weapons and say …
I’M GOING IN!
