Genesis 3:15. I will put Enmities between Thee and the Woman, and Thy Seed and Her Seed:
She shall Crush Thy Head, and Thou shalt Lie in Wait for Her Heel.

 

 

When attempting to Summarize what our Faith can tell us about that Last and Final Judgment and the Events that Precede it, we have to Remember we are Dealing with a Great Mystery - as to its Time, its Nature, its Place. Father Paul A. Duffner, O.P. details the Church's 2000 Year old Teaching on this matter and elaborates on the Signs which will Precede the Second Coming of Christin his Thesis on The Last Day and the General Judgment. This Particular Page contains Opinions by Church Leaders on Marian Involvement, based on the Little that has been Revealed through Scripture and Divine Revelation.

 

The Battle is Now !!!

Jesus Christ defeated Satan Two Thousand Years Ago by His Passion and Death on the Cross, but the Battle for Men's Souls continues. Satan himself was Chained-by Jesus during His Descent into Hell immediately after His Death. This Account is Beautifully Rendered in a Divine Revelation by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824) Mystic, Stigmatist, Visionary, and Prophet:

In the Centre of Hell I saw a Dark and Horrible-looking Abyss, and into this Lucifer was cast, after being first strongly secured with chains; thick clouds of sulphurous black smoke arose from its Fearful Depths, and enveloped his Frightful Form in the Dismal Folds, thus Effectually Concealing him from every Beholder. God Himself had decreed this; and I was likewise told, if I remember rightly that he will be unchained for a time Fifty or Sixty Years before the Year of Christ 2000. The dates of many other events were pointed out to me which I do not now remember; but a certain number of Demons are to be let loose much earlier than Lucifer, in order to Tempt Men, and to serve as Instruments of the Divine Vengeance. I should think that some must be loosened even in the Present Day, and others will be Set Free in a Short Time.

Pope John Paul II wrote in his 1987 Encyclical Redemptoris Mater that Marian Apparitions signify the Blessed Virgin's Journey through Time and Space in a Pilgrimage toward the Second Coming of Jesus and her Final Victory over Satan. This is her Role now as it has been Predestined from the Beginning; i.e. Genesis 3:15.

Through a Deluge of Apparitions, the Blessed Virgin Mary is Issuing a Wake-up Call. She describes a Huge Battle now taking place. Satan has Unleashed the Full Power of all his Demons, for Heaven has granted him a Century in which to do his Very Worst to try to Destroy the Church. Satan's Final Goal is to Extinguish the Light of Faith from the Face of the Earth, which Satan had Boasted he could do. Pope Leo XIII had a Vision of a Confrontation between God and Satan. Pope Leo was made to understand that Satan would be allowed One Hundred Years to Tempt and try to Destroy the Church. He is Full of Furious Activity, for he knows that his Time is Short.

The Battle now being Waged in the Heavens will soon be Played-out in Awesome Fury before our eyes -- in the very Skies, in the Seas, and on the Ground. This Battle cannot be Understood or Believed outside of the Realm of Faith. We are Witnessing the Intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Heaven and True Beacon for all Christians. It is now part of God's Plan to have the "Woman Clothed with the Sun" (Revelation 12:1) appear throughout the World, to offer His People a Safe Haven in her Immaculate Heart.

piusxii.jpg (2477 bytes) Pope Pius XII warned about the "Harsh and Bitter Sufferings" facing the Human Race. He said, "Mankind must prepare itself for Suffering such as it has never before experienced". Pope Pius XII described our Times as "The Darkest since the Deluge" and declared, "The Hour has Struck - - the Battle, the most Widespread, Bitter and Ferocious the World has ever known, has been joined. It must be Fought to the Finish".

In 1950, renowned Catholic Churchman, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen wrote "We are living in the Days of the Apocalypse - - the Last Days of our Era. Modern Man has been Humiliated: sheen.gif (6584 bytes) neither his Proud Expectations of Progress nor of Science have turned out as he hoped. Yet he has not quite Reached the Point of Humbling himself. He is still Imprisoned in the Self, and able to see nothing else beyond. The Psychoanalysts may be allowed to Bore into his Thoughts for a few years more; but the Time is not far off when Modern Men will utter a Frantic Appeal to God to lift them from the Empty Cistern of their own Egos". The Two (2) Great Forces of the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the Antichrist are beginning to draw up their Battle Lines for the Catastrophic Contest. Mary's Plan, Plain and Simple, is to prepare us for the times ahead.

The Final Battle is coming very soon. The Remnant who will survive will be Small in Number. Yet there is One (1) Place of Safety where all can be Protected from the Approaching Storm. The Ark of Our Lady's Immaculate Heart, Full of Maternal Love for Jesus and for us. She is calling all of her Children to enter, by Acts of Consecration to that Heart. The Chastisement is near. Our Lady invites us all to enter her Refuge.

Scripture states that when Jesus Died the Earth Quaked, the Skies produced Lightning and Thunder, Darkness came over the Whole Land, and the Veil in the Temple was Torn Asunder (Matthew 27:45-54). In Today's World, with its Materialistic Philosophies and increasing Sinfulness, it will not be long before the Earth once more Manifests its Violent Grief.

noah.jpg (43875 bytes) We have forgotten that Ultimately all of Human Life comes down to a Simple Choice of Heaven or Hell; and Heaven apparently intends very soon to use Powerful Means of Persuasion on a Scale never before Witnessed in the History of the World. Genesis shows us the Extreme Displeasure of Yahweh with His People; so great was His Displeasure that God Regretted making Man, as Genesis 6:6 tells us. God Cleansed the Entire World by Flood. The Waters of the Great Flood Forshadow the Cleansing Waters of Baptism.

Mary has the Heart of a Mother, one who Lives for all her Children. She is Reaching-out to those Far-away, the Sinners, the Atheists, those who Reject God, those who Fight against Him, and those who Hate Him. She wants to help all Men as their mother -- for the Hour is Late.

 

What Should You and I Do?

The Blessed Mother asks each Person of Faith for a Personal Decision to Strive-for Holiness. She Stresses the Necessity of making the Commitment to "Pray, Pray, Pray", not merely with the Lips, but from the Heart. She tells us to Fast, to be Reconciled with God and Neighbor, in order to attain Peace for Ourselves and Peace for the World. The Messages require Change in our Lives.

Although God is Extremely Generous bestowing His Graces, the Number who Respond is often Small. Just like the Army raised by Gideon in the Old Testament (Judges 7) -- which God cut from 10,000 to 300 Soldiers -- People responding to Mary's Messages are but a Tiny Fraction of the Church. But Mary promises Victory to her Cohorts. And, as was the case with Gideon, the very Smallness of the Movement will be a Powerful Witness that the Victory is Truly the Lord's.

In our Souls is an Insatiable Hunger for Truth, for a Real Encounter with God. We are Spiritual Beings who long for the Truth of God. Sometimes Heaven does not Speak as Clearly as we would like. The Gospels tell us to Judge a Tree by its Fruit, for a Bad Tree cannot bear Good Fruit. Spiritually speaking, we are in Uncharted Waters. We must be open to what the Spirit is doing in our midst today, for the Events that Mary Predicts are all Mentioned in Scripture.

Satan will not be Chained by a Mighty Magical Chain forged of Indestructible Steel, but by the Beads of the Everyday Rosary. In the End, the Pride of the Red Dragon will be Forever Broken and Conquered by the Humility, the Littleness, and the Power of a little Jewish Girl, your Heavenly Mother, the Woman Clothed with the Sun, who is now Gathering all her Little Children into her Army, drawn-up for Battle.
