THE BRITTANY PROJECT
Marie-Julie Jahenny, the victim soul who prayed for us and especially for the Holy See of the Cross, the Papacy in Exile. Hail Pope Gregorius XVIII !
Jesus tells me:
« Spiritual communion produces great fruits in the soul. Many souls have won more through spiritual communion than through sacramental communion.
The Council of Trent strongly recommended spiritual communion. The Doctors of the Church have also recommended it.
My children, there are souls who have won through [spiritual communion] 10,000 times more merits than by sacramental communion, due to the absence of priests, being that they [the priests] have been repelled by the authority.
This beautiful practice of spiritual communion, which is rare today, compensates Me for the great abandonment where I am left. The advantages are great, above all if one looks to divulge this practice.
My victim, it is necessary that you make satisfaction for those who offend me. It is necessary that you pay for the ingratitude of those who outrage me when they persecute you. It is necessary that you be stoned.
--I want it a lot.
If I stop making you suffer, the cessation of your sufferings will make my vengeance to fall upon those who persecute you and persecute Me . . .
You know, when the spouse suffers, the Divine Spouse also suffers. Our alliance is for always. You are the fountain into which I come to wash my bleeding wounds. My Victim, when I receive strong outrages, I drink from half of it and I give you the rest. When sinners strike on my spines, if there are two, I give you one. In this way, you have by a purpose the veil of my anger, the sinner will never be struck.
. . . In this rotten century, I have chosen for you the road of the greatest tests. To the others I give a father and a friend to direct them, to lighten and diminish their pains. For you I have made an exception: for you [there will be] no consolation. You tell me: My Lord, my Lord, am I in Thy grace? You are the only one that I have treated in this way.
--I thank Thee, my Jesus, as long as I am saved!
--I have allowed your enemies to place on you, upon your back, the coat of sufferings. I have wanted to see their malice. You have abandoned yourself to My Holy Will: that is what I was waiting for. I treat you as My Father has treated Me.”
(28 February 1878)

Reflection on this Prophecy :
This week’s prophecy bears important lessons: firstly about the merits to be had from Spiritual Communion, secondly, how we can make satisfaction for the sins against God by those who persecute us, and thirdly, how Marie-Julie Jahenny has been given a special role in this intercession on behalf of sinners.
About Spiritual Communion:
With Holy Mother Church in Her exile, we do not receive of the holy sacraments as much as we would like. This can become a burden, since it deprives us of spiritual graces to fight the good fight to our best ability each and every day.
What we need to consider, and to consider seriously, is making Acts of Spiritual Communion daily, and even often throughout each day. There is no limitation on how many Spiritual Communions a person may make.
And, as we learn from today’s prophecy, the benefits are a gain in merits before God, which make us more worthy for Heaven – that is, less likely to be damned for all eternity.
Our Lord Jesus Christ tells Marie-Julie that “Many souls have won more through spiritual communion than through sacramental communion.”
This is astonishing, for one always thinks that a sacramental Communion, the actual receiving of the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, would be the most efficacious for the soul.
But it seems that this is not always the case. Logically then, it would seem that it is the degree of union with which one unites oneself with Our Lord spiritually which can allow us to gain, at times, greater merits.
And then our hopes soar as we read:
“My children, there are souls who have won through [spiritual communion] 10,000 times more merits than by sacramental communion, due to the absence of priests, being that they [the priests] have been repelled by the authority.”
Marie-Julie Jahenny is undergoing this exact situation, since she is denied sacramental communions for eleven years while the authority of her diocese undergoes its investigation of her visions, stigmata, etc.
And with the Great Apostasy which has taken place, we are left in a similar situation today!
Our search for daily graces must, AT LEAST ONCE DAILY, include making Acts of Spiritual Communion. We cannot fail in this, for the graces are great, giving “10,000 times more merits . . . due to the absence of priests”.
How good God is as we go through this desert experience!
Spiritual Communion is explained as the “beautiful practice of spiritual communion …[because it]…compensates [Christ] for the great abandonment
where [He is] left alone in a tabernacle, forgotten – or worse, rejected for some worldly distraction. May Christ have mercy on our souls!
About Interceding for Sinners who Persecute Us:
Christ tells Marie-Julie that “it is necessary that you make satisfaction for those who offend Me.” This is so that souls may receive graces necessary to their salvation.
Again we are reminded of the words of Our Lady of Fatima: “Souls go to Hell because there is no one to pray for them.”
Our Holy Mother is trying to help us to understand that intercessory prayer and sacrifices on behalf of sinners is not only very important, but also just.
Have we not ourselves received our Faith as a free gift from God? Where then are our merits which deserved this greatest of gifts?
But in our pride we forget that our Faith has not come from our own efforts, and in our self love we forget to intercede for the souls who are still to receive this One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Faith which we hold so dear.
No, we would rather indulge in angry or hate-filled thoughts, especially about those who persecute us (or have persecuted us in the past), rather than beg God for their souls to be saved.
Aren’t we at fault? Will we not have to answer for such wretched selfishness?
But we can do so much for poor sinners (and our own souls also)! We can offer up Spiritual Communions on behalf of these sinners, and especially on behalf of those who persecute us!
What Marie-Julie’s Intercessory Role Teaches Us:
God’s Divine Will for Marie-Julie is “the road of the greatest tests.” As she suffers through bouts of great pains, blindness, deafness, and not being able to speak, eat, drink, or walk, she is also being humiliated and isolated. As Christ tells her in this prophecy, “for you [there will be] no consolation.”
And she, who is being utterly abandoned to endure her sufferings without consolations, is revealed to be receiving a great grace, for our Lord tells Marie-Julie, “You are the only one that I have treated in this way.”
Her role as intermediary for sinners is explained thus:
“When sinners strike on my spines, if there are two, I give you one. In this way, you have by a purpose the veil of my anger, so that the sinner will never be struck.”
Christ is revealing that it is through the sufferings that she accepts, which rightly belong to those who sin against God, that she is able to help them to avoid Hell.
Who are these sinners?
Those who PERSECUTE HER!
And so we come to understand that these souls who persecute us are sent to us so that we will be their mediaries with God!
If we can take this suffering on, without complaining but by making prayerful and earnest supplications instead (such as Spiritual Communions), then we can help that soul to avoid Hell because God is giving us the means, because God wants it!
What a great friend we have in the Bridegroom of our souls! He gives us so many opportunities to live a supernatural life while still on earth. Here we are, in the 2018th Year of Our Lord, and we are studying a lesson which Jesus Christ gave to Marie-Julie in 1878!
May we remember always about the importance of daily Spiritual Communions, and about the need to intercede for those who persecute us.
Laus Tibi, Christe!
The Seven Trumpets of the Divine Chastisement
I have wanted, says the Lord, to show the beginning of the Chastisement, but it has been too little recognized and meditated upon. I am going to join it with other indications which no one will be able to deny, except the disbelieving who never believe in anything, and who live like animals.
Satan leaps from fury and says:
--Since God comes to manifest the ends of that which He has begun with works and with gifts, I will revenge myself on all that I am able. I will stop those who untangle the difficulty of the road to enter here; I will have traps on all the passages (ways); I will overthrow them; I will utilize, in order to give them a thrashing, all the instruments of my hell.
[Marie-Julie says:] --Satan, you are beaten. It
is for this reason that you revenge yourself.
--(in his fury) I will come day and night; I will make horrible carnage; I will throw stones and I will break the glazing.
--Satan, you are beaten. The light is upon us and already its flame is apparent.
--(in his fury) I will enter with all the filth, with all the stones, and I will sift you.
--I am not afraid, Satan.
--I will make those who work in this place afraid, who are regarded like princes and advocates. Pretty honour!
--Satan, you are beaten by their devotions and their courage. Your rage exhausts itself with threats...
--(in his fury) I will strike down all those who wear black robes, even in your cave. I will make to change the people of Faith and of confidence. I will give them unknown names. In the middle of a crowd assembled, I will show myself king and powerful...
--Satan, remove yourself.
And Satan, foaming, says in a voice which “lowers itself down”:
--All these are of the “beats of the sole” and of the forerunners of doctrines. These are all, says he, with eyes that bulge from their sockets, these are all of the hollow “careers”; these are all of the crows and of the shredders of my reign.
--Remove yourself and go fry in your hell!
--I am going to begin my efforts again, and until the end, treat you with dreadful words.
--I am not afraid of you, villainous beast, remove yourself.
(23 November 1882)
[Source: pp. 150-151, Le Ciel en Colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Fr. Pierre Roberdel].
Reflection on this prophecy:
The key of this prophecy is at its beginning, with the first sentence. Recall that the year is1882:
“I have wanted, says the Lord, to show the beginning of the Chastisement, but it has been too little recognized and meditated upon.”
God is speaking to Marie-Julie about the beginning of the Chastisement, indicating that it has already happened. God is speaking of the full Chastisement, in its entirety (not just its culmination, known as the 3 Days of Darkness).
Most interesting! So what have Catholics not recognized?
What event began the Divine Chastisement that we are still living (and which, in the end, will purge the world of the wicked during the 3 Days of Darkness)?
By 1882, when Marie-Julie has this vision, the French Revolution has already occurred, almost 100 years previously (1789-1799). This revolution begins the now-historical chain of events which are the masonic plottings to remove God's Church, the Catholic Church, and God, from the minds and hearts of mankind.
Then, just twelve years before this prophecy, in 1870, the second major event in the Chastisement occurs: the loss of the Papacy's temporal power with the conquest of the Papal States by the masonic Italian army. (The Papacy's temporal power is depicted as one of the three crowns on the Papal tiara worn by the Popes.)
This week, on www.tcwblog.com there is a must-read editorial written by His Holiness, Pope Gregory XVII, in 1970, which provides wondrous spiritual guidance for all of us regarding the satanic persecutions which we have been battling for so long. In part, His Holiness explains:
“When one hundred years ago the temporal power fell, the Pope seemed like a prisoner. "The end of the Papacy," screamed the modest means of social communications of that time. [Rennovatio VI,1970].
This taking of the Papal States, and the imprisonment of the Holy Father, Pope Pius IX, surely was the first of those “other indications [of the Chastisement] which no one will be able to deny, except the disbelieving who never believe in anything, and who live like animals.”
God's Love for us is so patient, His actions are so slow, including His Chastisement, that the devil cannot stand it. In his jealousy, he rages about God's “works” and “gifts” to mankind.
The devil tells Marie-Julie that he will “revenge [himself] on all that [he is] able. [That he] will stop those who untangle the difficulty of the road to enter here;”
Where does he want to stop us from entering?
There are two possibilities.
It could be that the devil wants to stop souls from getting to Brittany, to stop them from surviving after the 3 Days of Darkness, or it could mean that he means to stop souls from finding the Church in Exile, outside of which there is no salvation.
Certainly, the devil means to entice us into being damned, like himself, and so he threatens to “have traps on all the passages (ways); [saying that he] will overthrow [us]; [that he] will utilize, in order to give [us] a thrashing, all the instruments of [his] hell.”
This gives us pause to think: How horrible are those instruments of hell! We know what his attacks are, how they aim to rip peace from our hearts, minds, and souls. The recent rash of suicides worldwide is witness to this thrashing from hell. But how horrible for the souls of the damned, to have an eternity of such grief, such turmoil. Who would wish this even on their worst enemy?!
As Marie-Julie hears the devil's threats, and responds to him, we see in her a true soldier of Christ. We see how we need to be: strong, never giving the little pig an inch, determined to fight the good fight for ourselves and for others.
She counters his every evil threat with his imminent defeat, pointing out the Truth that he is already beaten, pointing to how his time is quickly ending:
“The light is upon us and already its flame is apparent.” -- Perhaps Marie-Julie refers to seeing Christ's return?
Then she reveals an IMPORTANT TRUTH when she tells the devil that he is “beaten by [our] devotions and [our] courage.”
For here is our strength: our weapons are spiritual. Prayer (devotion) comes from Faith, which is a gift of the Holy Ghost. Courage is also a gift of the Holy Ghost. We receive these weapons, these gifts of the Holy Ghost, with the Sacrament of Confirmation.
But what of the people who are not in communion with the Holy Father? Where are their Sacraments? Where are their weapons?
How can they possibly hope to battle the devil?
The truth is that souls have to come into communion with the one Papal Line, with the True Successor of Saint Peter, Pope Gregorius XVIII, in order to receive valid and licit Sacraments; that is, Sacraments which are Holy, which give the recipient spiritual life!
The devil knows that there are no graces from false sacraments; that is, supposed sacraments received outside of communion with the Holy Father.
So the devil's plan is to attack the priesthood first. This is why he tells Marie-Julie that he will “strike down all those who wear black robes” (that is, the Priests, because they alone wear the black soutane or cassock).
He next threatens to “make to change the people of Faith and of confidence.” This must surely be why television and the movies have been invented, because of how quickly they can make most people think in the same way (a beehive mentality, as it is now called).
He will give them false baptisms, and false creeds, so that their names will not be written in the Book of Life: “I will give them unknown names.”
He will rule over the masonic V2 council led by antipopes Roncalli and Montini: “In the middle of a crowd assembled, I will show myself king and powerful...”
Again, the devil's aim is to deceive millions of Catholics so that they are led out of communion with the Holy Father and into perdition, where he resides.
The devil delights in speaking of the fallen priests. He defines them as those who seemingly love their attachments to earthly lures, with the image of a priest who taps his shoe along to a song as the “beats of the sole”.
Priests are to be spiritual healers and teachers. But the priests who are attached to the world become the “forerunners of [deceptive] doctrines”. These bad priests are termed those “of the hollow 'careers' ”, meaning that they look to benefit themselves rather than to save souls.
These bad priests are evil, “ of the crows” and also destroyers of souls, “of the shredders of my reign.”
These words cut into Marie-Julie's heart, since she is beginning to experience attacks from some of these priests, and so she becomes upset, yelling out, “Remove yourself and go fry in your hell!”
Marie-Julie is a good Catholic. She loves the Priesthood. In them she knows Christ.
This long time of Chastisement is a serious time, and Marie-Julie knows it because she is beginning to experience the demonic persecutions from bad priests, and because she is being shown the Popes in Exile and how hard it will be to find the Catholic Church on this earth during the Church's Exile of Silence.
Holy Mother Church is here on Earth, now and always, but how do we convince souls who have accepted the demonic lies of their Sunday pseudo-sacraments?
May God remove the deception soon, so that they do not die outside the Church.
Blessed be Saint Peter, Prince of the Apostles!
Augustine and the Devil by Michael Pacher, 1471. The devil lies so as to intimidate. But our graces come from God. Even our Faith comes from God, because He wants us to love Him.
“... The heart of the Church, continues Saint Michael, is but a bleeding wound. Today crime is taken right up to the foot of the aut...
--I have understood, Holy Archangel, but I will not speak of it.
--The Lord wishes it.
--I will not say it, Saint Michael.
--I pass since you are afraid to sin.
--Yes, I am afraid to be wanting in charity.
--I speak of the order of the Lord.
--I will not go back, Saint Michael, if you speak in this way.
--Dear friends of God, the Lord is offended by those who should serve Him.
--Do not say that, Saint Michael, I will not repeat it.
--The friends of God are warned; they only have to wait in silence and in their generous faith.
The Good Immaculate Mother intervenes:
“Be at peace” She says, “above all the words of Saint Michael, it is my Dear Son who has dictated them.”
--Good Mother, I am very quiet about it.
Saint Michael resumes:
“Listen, a word for you. Satan boasts that he will crush you under the weight of persecution and of horrible treatment. He congratulates himself and he hopes to take revenge on your hope.
--Saint Michael, tell him that he is very foolish if he thinks it. He is again more stupid than foolish. Tell him this from me, and also that I am not afraid of him.
--He also says: I would very much like to take at once the friends of the Cross.
--Tell him that he boasts too quickly, and that he will fail in his dirty stupidity. Tell him that.
--The means to make him to fail, is to not fear him and to laugh at him.
--Oh Saint Michael, we know this beast well.
--He boasts again of making an “evasion”...
--I do not know what this is.
--An “evasion” of the friends of the Cross by a very loud noise with which he will make them leave.
--Saint Michael, tell him that he has his paws turned backwards, and that he is not capable of making my friends leave.
--He says that he will declare war against you, on you, on the victims, and on the friends of the Cross.
--Tell him that, when there will only be this Quequet [quequet = little pig] to make war against us, his soldiers will be nothing more than dust.
--I warn you.
--I am not afraid.
--He says that he is going to arouse a very large stir in this parish, and that he is going to make to come out all that is the most abominable.
--Tell him for me, Saint Michael, and for my friends, that he is unable to make any other sort of thing to come out, because he is full of filth... and that filth is his food.
--He says that he wants to turn upside down the love of the Cross in all hearts, but he admits that he is on the point of being beaten. That is why his chaos will not be missed.
--We do not fear him. That he go with his! He has laughed with his. We have laughed, we, with Jesus Christ. Those who have laughed with Satan cannot laugh anymore with God.
--Courage in the middle of all that. I have warned you.
--Yes, and I thank you.
--Your enemies want to redouble their violence again.
--I have no enemies.
--Yes, you have many.
--In accordance with charity, I have none.
--When the priest who comes here is going to return, with his fatal dispositions, loaded with an authority by an authority without authority, do not trust him. Keep the biggest reserve.
--Thank you, Saint Michael.
--It is all a sudden attack that is being prepared and they are enjoying each other. All of you, you keep a deep silence! It is the most terrible times, it is the fury; but their efforts are very far from being on the way of triumph. The fights are close to all odds. You must suffer again, lift your body to the cross and your soul to the chalice of Jesus Christ.
--I am ready. I do not refuse to suffer. Only, Saint Michael, ask for me of Our Lord the grace to be able to endure it well.
--If you had seen all of the mountains of sufferings of which you had to be in charge, would you have consented to so much suffering?
--Yes, Saint Michael, but I prefer not to have seen them. I throw myself blindly in the Holy Will of my Love.
--If you knew what you carry on your shoulders and everywhere!
--All of this excites a holy compassion in my soul for those who bloom me. To be blooming from flowers of persecution, how beautiful!
--The Lord gives, when he wishes, to all these flowers, a good odour. I stop myself and I repeat: courage to all!
The Holy Virgin says in her turn:
“My children, I will protect you... I will return often to warn you again and to console you because you need it.”
--Oh! Good Mother, we do not know anymore what is the consolation here below!
--It is in Heaven that it will be enjoyed. Courage, my children... My Son protects you because He has need of you.
--My Good Mother, I beg you – I am more bold with you than with Saint Michael – I beg you, tell me, amidst all of my pains, if I do that which the Good God desires.
--Reassure yourself, console yourself. My Son has never been more glorified, more than today, by your invisible pains.
--Good Mother, the sufferings are all interior.
--I will relieve them well, but, since my Son sends me to add one last flower to your crown, I leave you your pains.
--It is sweet for me to suffer when I have a word to strengthen me.
--Courage! My children, I leave you.
Saint Michael adds:
“I will come again.”
He shows his sword and says:
“This sword will be plunged in the blood of the infamous. I am the exterminator Angel.”
Glory be to the Father...
(29 September 1879)
[Source: pp. 146-150, Le Ciel en Colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Fr. Pierre Roberdel].
Reflection on this prophecy:
Pope Pius IX dies in 1878, and this prophecy takes place in 1879, at the beginning of Pope Leo XIII's rule. The Church has had her Papal States stolen from Her in an act of war by the masonic Italian government.
Thus Saint Michael says, “... The heart of the Church ... is but a bleeding wound. Today crime is taken right up to the foot of the aut...”. The unfinished word is likely “authority” meaning, up to the foot of the Papacy, because the Papacy itself is already threatened.
Recall that it is Pope Pius IX who says “The vipers are at Our Breast”, meaning that the masons have managed to gain positions among cardinals and other high-ranking officials, in order to try to gain the Chair of Saint Peter for themselves.
Sadly, they manage this feat on October 26, 1958, at the Papal Conclave after the death of Pope Pius XII.
The heart of the Catholic Church continues to bleed throughout this Exile of Silence where the Holy Father and the small flock under His authority continually suffer, pray, and patiently
wait for God to act.
Marie-Julie Jahenny, for her part, will not speak of the acts of treason by those pretending to be clerics, and even by those who have truly received Holy Orders. She does not wish to scandalize souls. She keeps silence out of charity.
But the devil knows that Marie-Julie also prays, along with her friends, in order to thwart his plans, and so Saint Michael the Archangel comes to warn her that “Satan boasts that he will crush you under the weight of persecution and of horrible treatment. He congratulates himself and he hopes to take revenge on your hope.”
The devil means to crush her spirit, and thus break her courage and conquer her efforts against him. He does so because he knows that he has a powerful opponent in this victim soul.
He even does so with us. The devil wants to break our spirit and crush our courage, because he knows that our prayers are powerful also. We, the small flock who pray in communion with the Pope Gregory XVIII, during this painful Exile ... how powerful our prayers must be in Heaven!
We will never stop praying in communion with the Holy Father, never. We are with God, and God triumphs over satan.
Marie-Julie calls the devil “quequet” which means “little pig” in her local dialect.
This shows us that Marie-Julie knows her adversary well, for after Christ frees a poor demoniac, he orders the demons into the pigs, and they have been forever humiliated by the event.
Even Shakespeare (in 1606 A.D.) comically alludes to this humiliation when he has one of the three witches in the play “Macbeth” say that she has been “killing swine” as an homage to the humiliated demons that they serve.
Marie-Julie brings Christ's humiliation of the devil to his face constantly, as she always calls him Quequet, or “little pig” whenever he appears to her. This can also be seen in the English translation of her prophecies, The Prophecies of La Fraudais.
Her battle with this Quequet is lifelong, and we see, from what Saint Michael tells Marie-Julie here, that the devil constantly attacks through people and problematic situations. We should expect no different, so we need to keep up our daily Holy Rosary.
For Marie-Julie, the persecutions also come from bad priests and false “authorities” who try to silence her through obedience. But she has Heaven on her side, to warn her:
It is 1879, and Saint Michael warns Marie-Julie that a priest is about to return “with his fatal dispositions, loaded with an authority by an authority without authority” and the Archangel tells Marie-Julie, “do not trust him. Keep the biggest reserve.”
We can see from this that already some clerical “authorities” are enemies who have been placed into positions of power.
A famous historical example of one such enemy occurs during the time of Pope Pius XII: one "cardinal" Rompolla goes unsuspected for decades as he positions many fellow masons into strategic places throughout his long “illustrious” career (that is, he was very careful to appear to be Catholic).
The attempt to silence Marie-Julie is long in duration, and denies her the Holy Eucharist for eleven years, but she endures and offers up all of her sufferings.
Marie-Julie's prophecies, prayers, and sufferings are very important to what will be the See of the Cross, the Exiled Papacy of Popes Gregory XVII and Gregory XVIII, as well as to the Church Militant, in this time of Exile.
The evidence of this is that Saint Michael tells her “If you knew what you carry on your shoulders and everywhere!”
This is because God has given a great mission to Marie-Julie, because He knows the great love of this servant of God for Him and His Holy Will, as well as for the salvation of souls (like us).
In answer to Saint Michael's revelation Marie-Julie says, “All of this excites a holy compassion in my soul for those who bloom me. To be blooming from flowers of persecution, how beautiful!”
She just wants souls to be saved. She is like the Good Shepherd. She does not want to lose even one.
Saint Michael then bolsters her by saying, “The Lord gives, when he wishes, to all these flowers, a good odour. I stop myself and I repeat: courage to all!”
We are being told that our sufferings will not go to waste. They are hard to endure, even a torture at times, but they do produce good results for ourselves and for other souls, if we accept them as God's Holy Will.
So let us offer our sufferings up for our own conversions and for that of others! Let us also be careful shepherds, like the Good Shepherd.
Lastly, Saint Michael shows his sword, which represents the Authority of Almighty God, and he says:
“This sword will be plunged in the blood of the infamous. I am the exterminator Angel.”
It is he who will protect us from these diabolical foes who seek to stop us, to damn us with their seeming truths, which are, in reality, lies.
The fact that Saint Michael here identifies himself as the "exterminator Angel" is significant. He is not saying that he is an exterminator Angel, but the Exterminator Angel!
This recalls to our minds the plague which God sent upon Egypt, where the Angel of Death slayed the first-born male child in the homes that did not worship God, that did not have the blood of the offertory lamb over the lintels of their homes' front doors.
Is Saint Michael that Angel of Death? Was it he who did the bidding of Almighty God on that night of Divine Justice?
These people in Egypt were punished because they would not worship God as He wished to be worshipped.
Christ gave mankind the Church as the way that we are to worship, and this is in communion with His Vicar, the Pope. Christ's Authority is given to His Vicar only. This is how God wants us to worship Him, through our communion with the Holy Father, Pope Gregory XVIII.
Those of us who are in communion with Christ's Vicar, Pope Gregory XVIII, will find our protection in Saint Michael the Archangel. He will guide us in the battles that we fight for God, and for His Truth, which can only be found in His Exiled Vicar who is the Head of His Church.
May Saint Michael the Archangel always be our defender against the attacks of the lying little pig and his demons.
And we have a great consolation from the Blessed Virgin Mary with her promise: “My children, I will protect you... I will return often to warn you again and to console you because you need it.”
What a good Mother Christ has given us! May we have the joy of praising and thanking Her in Heaven for all eternity!
Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army
set in array? (Cant. vi).
Saint Michael the Archangel brings his sword, which represents God's Divine Justice, down upon the devil and the spirit of angry rebellion against God.
“It is the path of the Bretons,” says Saint Michael, “be proud of the name which you carry.”
Saint Michael makes me look at two small rivers. That which runs the closest to us has its water clear and pure.
“Victim of the Cross,” says he, “you see this other small river. Look at the change which is going to be made there as soon as I go and immerse the point of my sword.”
Saint Michael turns the point of his sword in this river which is not of Brittany. The water begins to howl like a boiler of boiling oil, and it acts with fury. It seems to want the other small river.
Saint Michael says to the Archangel Raphael who comes to join us:
“Put a chain between the two streams.”
Saint Raphael attaches the chain to two white posts.
“Here,” says he, “is the chain, the fence somehow, which separates Brittany from France...”
-- “But, holy Archangel, is it that Brittany will not always remain French?”
-- “Yes, it will always be French, but it will have one more gift. The Lord has chosen a name for it. This name shall be miraculously discovered by several souls who will have some revelations.”
“Bretons, you will know this name even before France is at the height of its iniquities and of its malice. This new name, it will be beautiful! It will glorify God as clearly as the sun shining at noon, in the heat of June.”
(15 January 1878)
[Source: pp. 142 – 143, Le Ciel en Colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Fr. Pierre Roberdel].
Reflection on this Prophecy:
This prophecy reveals the spirit of good and the spirit of evil through the image of two streams. As Saint Michael and Marie-Julie are good, so the stream that “runs the closest to [them]” represents the spirit of good. It has “water [that is] clear and pure.”
In this prophecy, Saint Michael has his sword, the weapon he uses to bring the Justice of God to mankind, ensuring that God's Will is done on earth as it is in Heaven.
No sooner does the tip of Saint Michael's sword go into the other stream, and the river is the image of rage: “The water begins to howl like a boiler of boiling oil, and it acts with fury.”
This other river represents the spirit of evil, which reacts angrily against any declaration of Truth or any imposition of God's Perfect Will.
Its actions denote pride (self-love) but also a burning hatred for the good, in that the spirit of evil, of rebellion, “seems to want the other small river” which implies a desire for the destruction of the good.
But God is in charge of all, and He will not permit the evil to destroy the good. Saint Michael tells Saint Raphael to “[p]ut a chain between the two streams” so as to separate the two.
Interestingly, Saint Raphael ties this chain to “two white posts” and one is reminded of the two white columns in Saint Don Bosco's dream which provide safe mooring for the embattled ship which is the persecuted Papacy and Church after 1958. Upon one column is the Blessed Sacrament, and upon the other is the Blessed Virgin Mary.
In this prophecy given to Marie-Julie Jahenny, the two posts present a much more humble image, and certainly a more rural one. There is nothing on top of these mere posts, but they are white, and they are able to firmly hold the chain which separates good and evil.
When Saint Michael points out that the chain acts like a fence to separate Brittany from France, Marie-Julie worries that her beloved Brittany will cease to be French in the future.
Saint Michael reassures her that Brittany will always be part of France, and this is how we know
that the separation is not geographical or political, but a spiritual separation. Brittany is a blessed land.
This makes sense when we consider the other prophecies given to Marie-Julie, where the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary both speak of the special love that the land of Saint Anne has in their Hearts, and of how Brittany has been blessed in a special way for the future.
Recall that the Sacred Heart calls us, the children faithful to the See of the Cross, to come to Brittany before the Three Days of Darkness, so as to find our survival easier.
Here the ground will shake less, and half of the crops will survive when the fire falls from the sky. Here there will be a ray of sunlight, from a separate sun, keeping Brittany warm and vibrant while the rest of the world experiences something quite different, and surely quite frightening.
The prophecies indicate that some of us will come after the Three Days of Darkness, and also that pilgrimages will be made to Marie-Julie's home, where a spring in the ground, to the south of her home, but close by, will provide miraculous cures of both bodily and spiritual ailments.
And there is a secret, which will be revealed to some souls, and this is a new name given to Brittany by God.
This new name “will be beautiful!”
The fact that it will also “glorify God” seems to bind Brittany with the spotless Bride of Christ, the Church, which has been suffering Her Exile in Silence.
This new name, in being both beautiful and glorifying God, must surely be connected to the restoration of the Chair of Saint Peter to the True Papal Line (which has been in Exile since October 26, 1958). There will be a universal recognition of the Holy Father, finally recognizable to all Catholics who are right of heart (good).
Only the Church, coming at last out of Her Silent Exile, can be said to be both beautiful and glorifying God in a clear way, through the Authority of the Magisterium, so that She is recognized by all: “the sun shining at noon, in the heat of June”.
And we do not have long to wait! For this new name of Brittany's, which will reveal this land's connection to the Church in Exile, will be known even before the persecution against the Church and all Catholics reaches its apex: “even before France is at the height of its iniquities and of its malice.”
Let us have confidence in God, always confidence in His Mercy in the days of Tribulation. And let us ask God to help us to understand the significance of Brittany in our own lives, as we live and plan to do His Holy Will.
Here is Marie-Julie's prayer, which she said daily, to also help us to act according to the Divine Will:
Most Holy and Adorable Trinity,
enlighten me by Thy Understanding,
direct me by Thy Understanding,
conduct me by Thy Understanding.
Enlighten my way, oh Holy Trinity,
so that I walk continually in the way of the Truth.
Receive Holy Communion . . . for What is Coming
The Sacred Heart says:
When a soul has just received Me, it is no longer the soul which lives, it is My Divine Soul which comes into this soul. For Holy Communion, I take away the Christian's heart and I give him Mine instead. How good I feel in these souls and in these hearts! Every day, I would like to be able to live in this palace formed by my Love.
These are the Holy Communions of today which, in a time which is coming soon, when there will no longer be Holy Bread, no longer the Adorable Body to sustain the failing forces. It is the very Holy Communions of today which will give to my beloved souls the force and the courage to confront, in charity, the peril and the danger; but these souls will not lose. This sacred manna will lift them above the peril, and will hold them suspended above the danger.
These beloved souls will accomplish acts of devotion, even for those who have been their thorns. These thorns will have been My thorns, those which will pierce My Heart and those which already pierce It. There are, faithful and blessed souls, there are only your approaches, by Holy Communion, which can heal the stings, and relieve the pains.
(22 June 1882)

Reflection on this Prophecy:
When we receive Holy Communion; that is, the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, we know that this is special.
Christ is coming to us, and, if we are given the grace, we sense Him in us, and our hearts and souls are filled with the quiet joy of His Presence.
But the title of this prophecy, as given in this book compiled by Father Roberdel, really does make us start up and take notice: “Receive Holy Communion . . . for What is Coming”.
“For what is Coming?!” we exclaim in shock. “We are already there!”
With the Catholic Church suffering in her time of Silence in Exile, we are living through the persecution, and we are not able to go to Holy Communion daily or even regularly.
Many of us hope for the Holy Sacraments once a year, perhaps twice. And each time we wonder if this is the last Holy Communion, the last time for the Holy Sacraments in our lifetimes.
So logically, but in dread, we ask, “Is there still more to come, a worse time of more sufferings than what we know today?”
And yes, this prophecy answers yes.
For there will be a time “when there will no longer be Holy Bread, no longer the Adorable Body to sustain the failing forces.”
The “failing forces”, a militaristic image, surely means the soldiers of the Catholic Church, who are her Priests.
They can be failing due to their joining with the general apostasy. Once Pope Gregory XVII is pushed aside and forced to dwell in the Silence of Exile for 31 years, the Priests around the world are no longer in communion with the True Pope, and they lose the life-sustaining Graces which come from the Holy Father, as the Vicar of Christ, down to the Princes (who are the Bishops) and then to the Priests.
Of course, it goes without saying that what the Priests no longer have to give, the people are no longer able to receive.
And if there is to come a time, when, indeed, the Faithful no longer have access to a Priest who is in communion with the Holy Father, Pope Gregory XVIII, or one of His Successors, then how are we to carry on?
And here, the Sacred Heart of Jesus reveals a Mystery to Marie-Julie: He tells her “It is the very Holy Communions of today which will give to my beloved souls the force and the courage to confront, in charity, the peril and the danger”.
God the Son, being outside of time, gives to us an ever-open channel to receiving Graces from the reception of Holy Communion through Marie-Julie and other holy Catholics of her time. Their Holy Communions for us will indeed give us “courage to confront, in charity, the peril and the danger”.
Surely it would please the Sacred Heart of Jesus that we unite ourselves with these “very Holy Communions”.
In the battles that we face, whether today or whenever they come, we are assured by the Sacred Heart that we will find the Salvation that we seek, since He says of us: “these souls will not lose.”
The snares which the devil and his demons set with which to trap us will not harm our souls, since “[t]his sacred manna will lift them above the peril, and will hold them suspended above the danger.”
So our connection to the “very Holy Communions” of Marie-Julie's time (1882) seems to be imperative. The Sacred Heart is revealing that Graces from these Holy Communions will sustain us in our times so that we can successfully do battle now and in whatever we face in the future.
And our prayers on behalf of sinners pleases the Sacred Heart of Jesus very much, for He says of us: “These beloved souls will accomplish acts of devotion, even for those who have been their thorns.”
Souls who are in sin and who persecute Pope Gregory XVIII and the Church in Exile, hurt not only us, the Faithful, but also hurt Christ our Lord, for He says of them: “These thorns will have been My thorns, those which will pierce My Heart”.
But we can relieve the Sufferings of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ our Lord, by offering up the Holy Communions that we do partake in, now, in union with the "very Holy Communions" of Marie-Julie and other holy Catholics of her time, for our spiritual needs (and the spiritual needs of others) during the time of no Holy Communions.
As well, we can make Spiritual Communions while we wait for the next opportunity to receive Holy Communion, and join our Spiritual Communions to Marie-Julie's and the other "very Holy Communions", so that the pains of the Sacred Heart may be alleviated:
“There are, faithful and blessed souls, there are only your approaches, by Holy Communion, which can heal the stings, and relieve the pains.”
Let us alleviate our dearest Lord, in His Sufferings for us, and let us rejoice in this Divine Love which provides for our every need, both now and in the times to come.
And let us remember to pray the chaplet which honours the Sacred Wounds of Christ our Lord, begs for the conversion of poor sinners, and relieves the sufferings of the Holy Souls in Purgatory: www.chapletoftheholywounds.com
