“Know that, in order to be admitted into the feast of My Tenderness, you must suffer, groan, be overwhelmed on all sides.”

 

Our Lord says:

 

“It is Me. I come to speak to you for a few moments before giving freedom to the holy Archangel. I come to rejoice with all of My children who participate with the bitterness of My Sorrows.

 

“Courage! If all of you are, for the glory of My Name, at the foot of the Cross, drinking a few drops from My bitter Chalice, be proud and bless My adorable Sweetness.

 

“Keep, more than ever, holy prudence. Be reserved in all things, because here is the Terrible Age when the enemy comes, in a last effort, to act with full power. I leave him with this short period of liberty, before chaining him in the belly of his abyss. Will you follow this advice?”

 

--O my Jesus, I will be loyal, I will keep holy prudence.

 

“My children, I warn you of only one thing: I desire that you not be troubled, not brought down, not frightened, when the menacing voice will make itself heard. Make Me this promise, so as to console Me.”

 

--I take upon me, miserable sinner, the thought of all my brothers. Yes, my Jesus, we will all remain calm and in the most profound peace.

 

“I do not address Myself to you… However, I thank you for your word… Do you suffer? It is for you that I now speak.”

 

--It is nothing in comparison with what Thou has suffered for me.

 

“Know that, in order to be admitted into the feast of My Tenderness, you must suffer, groan, be overwhelmed on all sides.”

 

--May Thy adorable Will be done!

 

I contemplate Saint Michael placed over a large, brilliant ball. He has extended wings, pure and beautiful. He carries a long and large sword.

 

“Now let’s go!” he says.

 

--Good Saint Michael, do not go too fast. You are very determined!

 

“Here I am at liberty. I received mighty powers from the Father of Mercy. Here is this terrible sword which the Sacred Heart has blessed to exterminate these ungrateful enemies. Do not cry anymore, combatants for the Glory of God. Despite terror, rejoice!

 

--All the same, good Saint Michael, that which you say is not very charitable!

 

“The seed of charity is not extinguished in you, friends of God, but see these men who will not participate in the victory, see if they have any charity for you!”

 

--Good Saint Michael, it does not concern us.

 

“Those who direct this fatal government…”

 

--Enough! Holy Archangel, I do not like to talk about that.

 

“It is a penance.”

 

--All right then, I am fine.

 

“It is the Will of God. Here they are then, with their victories and their plots, reduced under my power. I have rights over them. I show them my sword and I say to them: Citizens of the world…”

 

--Holy Archangel, I do not like to go there.

 

“Citizens of the world, we say to you who have a power that is said to come neither from Heaven nor from the earth, take up your weapons and fight! I will stir roughly those who say: ‘Our power comes neither from high nor from low.’ Their power is very low and mounted on poles of the earth. Sooner than they think, they will find themselves devoid of everything.

 

“Men in power have made their plots, but they do not hear anymore, and their discord reaches even to anger… They seem to triumph and carry the victory by very strong and impious laws. Numerous voices cry: ‘Death to the Church! Death to France!’ The voices of demons will mix with the voices of men in power.

 

“It will not be long before the storm is heard over all of France…

 

“If God had not promised to save France, these people would be sorry! Yes, He will save her [France], but not without making her undergo justice.”

 

(29 September 1878)

Reflection on this prophecy:

 

Certainly, we have been living in this “Terrible Age” since October 26, 1958, when the Holy Father was pushed aside, to endure 31 years of being the Pope in Red (a term first used by Anna Katerina Emmerich when referring to Pope Gregory XVII).

 

This age is terrible because it is “when the enemy comes, in a last effort, to act with full power.”

 

Yes, this coming October 26, the Papacy and the Church Militant will have been in exile for 60 years...

 

But Christ tells us to be faithful and strong:

 

“Courage! If all of you are, for the glory of My Name, at the foot of the Cross, drinking a few drops from My bitter Chalice, be proud and bless My adorable Sweetness.”

 

As members of the Body of Jesus Christ, we must understand the importance of holy sufferings: “Know that, in order to be admitted into the feast of My Tenderness, you must suffer, groan, be overwhelmed on all sides.”

 

Christ encourages us to “[k]eep, more than ever, holy prudence. Be reserved in all things…”

 

And then He exhorts us to always have holy confidence:

 

“My children, I warn you of only one thing: I desire that you not be troubled, not brought down, not frightened, when the menacing voice will make itself heard. Make Me this promise, so as to console Me.”

 

It is true that we are living through a time of horrendous injustices, but the actual focus of this prophecy seems to be on the spiritual battle being waged against piety; that is, religious obligation to God and His Vicar: "They seem to triumph and carry the victory by very strong and impious laws."

 

And Saint Michael tells Marie-Julie something that is also important for us to think about:

 

“The seed of charity is not extinguished in you, friends of God, but see these men who will not participate in the victory, see if they have any charity for you!”

 

Yes, each one of us has a real battle on our hands. In its essence it is a battle for our eternal souls.

 

The Church Militant, in Her Exile, is surrounded by loud voices who push the Pope, the Vicar of Christ, aside, as if He is irrelevant. Their battle cry truly is “ ‘Death to the Church!’ ”

 

But we must remain steadfast and prudent, for this is the age when “[t]he voices of demons will mix with the voices of men in power.”

 

We who are in the Barque of Saint Peter are safe.

 

Hail, Pope Gregorius XVIII !

 

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the Heavenly Host, be our defense in the terrible warfare!

 Our sins have crucified Jesus Christ our Lord. If we are honest, we have to acknowledge that our sins continue to crucify Him, to cause Him excruciating pains.

Painting: Saint Margaret of Cortona (1247-1297)

 

“The blood of innocents,” says Saint Michael, “will be spilled for France and also for a more elevated cause; that of evil doers will be spilled to satisfy the wrath of God who cannot endure any more evil. This is why I speak so heavily.”

 

--Yes, holy Archangel. Enough! You stir up all. [says Marie-Julie].

 

“When God will have waited as long as He has noted, the hand of the Lord, becoming free, will strike with rigour. All will be accomplished without the people of France recognizing God and without their having re-entered into good dispositions. That will be a terrible Age. But no eye, whether living or dead, will have seen that which has been reserved for the next times, never [has there been seen] any similar Justice.

 

“This Justice will be seen by the children of God who will not suffer the terrible vengeances. It will be seen by those who must suffer, but very briefly: as soon as the eyes of these latter have perceived of God’s Justice, they will already be closed to never open again.

 

“Oh! If the impious could penetrate this inexorable Justice, they would shudder with fear and horror. You, do not be troubled: you are destined to see that which those who lived centuries before you have never seen. Do not be frightened: rely on the merciful promise of your Redeemer.

 

“Rest for a moment.”

 

--I want [to rest], good Saint Michael, because the work is hard and I do not have a bit of taste for it.

 

“We do not choose. You are happier on other days.”

 

--It is true, holy Archangel, we do not know where you lead us.

 

“Thank God.”

 

(29 September 1878)

Reflections on this prophecy :

 

This prophecy explains how the Chastisements will result in two types of deaths: those of the Faithful and those of the reprobate.

 

The Faithful will die to make reparation for the sins of a masonic, atheistic, and communistic people; and also for the restoration of the Catholic Monarchy: “The blood of innocents . . . will be spilled for France and also for a more elevated cause.”

 

The reprobate will be killed by Divine Justice as the way to put a stop to their evil actions, which go against all that is just and true.

 

Saint Michael says that “God will have waited.”

 

Indeed, God will have waited for the last person of this time to have decided for God or for evil.

 

Once that choice is made here on earth, “the hand of the Lord, becoming free, will strike with rigour.”

 

Nothing more will be holding back God’s Mercy!

 

The Divine Chastisement will come so suddenly that “[a]ll will be accomplished without the people of France recognizing God.”

 

Sinners will have denied God so much that they will refuse to think of God even when they are faced with a frightening death.

 

This is why “[t]hat will be a terrible Age.”

 

It will be a time when people will have utterly rejected the reality of God. It is our time!

 

The Divine Chastisement will be so utterly severe that “never [has there been seen] any similar Justice.”

 

But before this Chastisement comes, there will come “terrible vengeances” and the children of God who live past these sufferings will get to see the final, much greater Chastisement of God's Justice:

 

“This Justice will be seen by the children of God who will not suffer the terrible vengeances.”

 

As for the children of God who do have to suffer “the terrible vengeances” (probably wars, famine and diseases like cholera, which is common when water becomes contaminated), they will quickly recognize God’s Hand before they die:

 

“. . . [A]s soon as the eyes of these latter have perceived of God’s Justice, they will already be closed to never open again.”

 

 It seems that the children of God will Mercifully be given a moment to prepare for death, to accept that their deaths are Just because they come from God.

 

But those who deny the existence of God will not be able to see that the horrible event is God's Chastisement; and is therefore impossible to stop: it is “inexorable”.

 

Saint Michael alludes to how unprepared sinners are for God’s Chastisement when he says that if they could understand the speed and scope of it, “they would shudder with fear and horror.”

 

And Marie-Julie, who has seen what the “terrible vengeances” and the Divine Chastisement which quickly follows will be, is exhausted from her sufferings for the conversions of oblivious sinners. She says:

 

“I want [to rest], good Saint Michael, because the work is hard and I do not have a bit of taste for it.”

 

Saint Michael tries to give her a small comfort when he says, “You are happier on other days.”

 

But her consolation is of a very short duration, for when she agrees that she never knows how she will feel from day to day, because “we do not know where you lead us”, the Archangel’s reply, in its fullness of truth, is also ominous.

 

“Thank God.” he says, meaning that Marie-Julie’s life is to experience sufferings, and much worse sufferings; that it is a Mercy from God that she does not know everything that she will have to endure for the salvation of sinners.

 

Perhaps at the General Judgment we will know what Marie-Julie and other victim souls have suffered for us.

 

We know that Marie-Julie was offered to die earlier or to extend her life of sufferings in order to delay the 3 Days of Darkness, that culminating Chastisement.

 

We know that Marie-Julie agreed to continue suffering in order to delay this date.

 

It is possible that we would never have been born if the 3 Days of Darkness had come sooner.

 

Certainly, we have much for which to be grateful to our Merciful Lord, His Immaculate Mother, and our dear friend, Marie-Julie.

 

May our Guardian Angels guide our lives into the path of true contrition for our sins, so that we may amend our lives like brave soldiers of Jesus Christ our Lord!

Pope Gregory XVII speaks to pilgrims at the grotto at Lourdes, where our Blessed Mother appeared from February 11-16, 1858. In 1958, one hundred years later, the masonic takeover occurred after Pope Gregory XVII was elected on October 26. What might his posthumous mission be?

This week is special: Monday is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes (Feb. 11), and Friday is the Feast of Our Lady of Banneux (Feb. 15). Let us implore the help of our Blessed Mother Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces, for the Papacy in Exile and for the French Monarch!

 

I read:

 

I will go to prepare the troops who will accompany Me from earth to Heaven. I am going to make the day arise where there will no longer be any darkness. Night will not rule all the time that I am passing over the earth. I will make My people forget the terrible combats that will only end when I have sent a very beautiful warning. This bright unveiling will make my people aware that they are at the door of the great days, that will not close until the earth is left orphaned. This will be the beginning of the great deluge…

 

After this I read:

 

I did not say that your mortal eyes would see this star arise in the last days… But at the doors of My Heaven, in this high transport, I will make it arise to the eye of your soul, the same as to the eyes of all my children. These will be invited to look at this faithful message which will bring salvation through fighting.

 

I read again:

 

According to the ardent desires of My power, you will come, from one time to another time, to sustain hope to My Apostles and to My servants; waiting until the man of their desires finally lifts the veil. Although enthroned forever in My Heaven, My supreme orders will not be held up for My waiting people. I will send you, from time to time, to announce the good news. You will descend from the height of Heaven, even in the midst of my servants who will have to re-do a work that is double the work of today…                            (7 March 1882)

 

From Heaven, you will see the triumph of the Church hover in front of My servant, [Prince] Henry of the Cross: his name is written in the book of gold. He will come to console the indigent, renew the devastated priesthood, weakened and fallen like a branch under the saw of the worker. His charity will renew the priesthood, will again raise up the statues of My Mother, will bring back the insulted Calvaries which have been reduced to shreds.

 

The innocent soul at the heart of Brittany will be, for the Servant of the Cross [Prince Henri], the messenger of orders from On-High.        (14 February 1882)

 

Reflection on these two prophecies:

 

The revelation that Marie-Julie Jahenny has a posthumous mission should not surprise us, as the Saints in Heaven are able to actively help people on Earth, such as when they intercede for us before God in answer to our prayers.

 

Before we reflect on Marie-Julie’s posthumous mission, it is worth our while to reflect for a moment on the posthumous missions of Pope Gregory XVII, and the other true Popes.

 

What might their responsibilities be in helping their Successor and the Church Militant? ...To strengthen His Holiness of the Cross, Pope Gregory XVIII.  ...To remove barriers (both present and future) for the French Monarch, Prince Henri.

 

While the actions of hell seem to be powerful on earth, our Faith tells us that this can only be a satanic illusion, for the true power rests with God our Creator.

 

Storms, for instance, have been dramatically reduced or stopped in answer to the prayers of the Church Militant. So have some illnesses, potential tragedies, and injustices.

 

Where there is prayer in communion with Pope Gregory XVIII, prayers are heard by the Almighty God; we have plentiful evidence of this. May His Will be done, for there are so many who need our prayers!

 

This week’s first prophecy speaks in military language: “troops” and “combats.”

 

But the battle is a spiritual one, as it will “make the day arise where there will no longer be any darkness.”

 

It will be a “passing over” of our Lord Jesus Christ’s Justice, like the Angel passing over the homes of the Israelites in the Old Testament [Exodus 12:29].

 

“Night will not rule”, meaning that evil’s time will be over.

 

In other words, God’s Justice prevails, the Truth of God is no longer suppressed, and there is a resurgence to the true Faith of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

 

We in the Church Militant will forget our old griefs and sufferings when we behold God’s special gift, “a very beautiful warning.”

 

We will know that we are “are at the door of the great days” and we will await the coming of “the great deluge” which, if we have not already lived them, will be the 3 Days of Darkness.

 

This “very beautiful warning” seems to not be visible to the physical eye, for Christ says: “I will make it arise to the eye of your soul, the same as to the eyes of all my children.”

 

This seems to refer to the inner warning which we will receive “before the roads on earth are closed” [another prophecy given to MJJ] so that we can get to Brittany, the special place prepared for us to survive.

 

Marie-Julie’s posthumous mission is to “come, from one time to another time, to sustain hope to My Apostles and to My servants.” Her job will be to tell us of “good news.”

 

And Marie-Julie does come to us, across time, through her prophecies, which are more relevant to our day and more clearly understood, because the unjust and painful Silent Exile of the Papacy, with the resulting destruction of the priesthood and defiling of the holy sacraments have all happened as Heaven has said.

 

So now we await the prophecied saviour, Prince Henri. Marie-Julie has been told that Heaven protects him.

 

God will act through the French Monarch “Henry of the Cross” and God’s “supreme orders will not be held up for My waiting people.”

 

In other words, the waiting will have ended.

 

Through the Heavenly-inspired actions of the French Monarch “you will see the triumph of the Church hover in front of My servant, [Prince] Henry of the Cross.”

 

Prince Henry’s actions will “console the indigent”; that is, those who have suffered real hardship and deprivation.

 

This French Monarch will also “renew the devastated priesthood” by first helping the Holy Father out of His Silent Exile and onto the Seat of Saint Peter for all to see.

 

The French Monarch is called “Henry of the Cross” because of his alliance with the See of the Cross; that is, the Pope in Exile.

 

The true and holy Sacrifice of the Mass will flourish around the world again as Henry of the Cross “will again raise up the statues of [Christ’s] Mother, will bring back the insulted Calvaries [true Masses] which have been reduced to shreds.”

 

And Marie-Julie, that “innocent soul at the heart of Brittany” will come spiritually to Prince Henri of the Cross to bring him “orders from On-High.”

 

Holy Mother, through Thy holy apparitions at Lourdes and Banneux, intercede for Henri of the Cross and for the See of the Cross!

Let us ask Our Lady of Good Counsel to teach us to suffer meritoriously for the restoration of the Seat of Saint Peter to the Pope in Exile, Gregorius XVIII, for the conversion of sinners, and in expiation for our sins.

 

“My children, my Divine Son prefers pains and sufferings to all good works and to all the charitable acts that you can make. All sufferings have been His spouses.”

 

--Oh! Dear Mother, the Saviour was All-Powerful. We are nothing but poor human hearts, so fragile and so light!

 

“It is true, my children, that you have of yourselves fragility, and that my Divine Son is God. But know that living on earth and because of the stain of original sin, your sorrows are infinitely greater in the eyes of God.”

 

--Good Mother, it is necessary to have the courage of the Good God to be able to endure all of these sufferings. I hope that you will forgive us—we are no more than feeble creatures—but do not our complaints cause us further suffering?

 

“No, my children. My Dear Son said, ‘Ask and you shall receive.’ ”

 

(3 December 1877)

 

[Source: page 190, Le ciel en colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, Editions Resiac].

 

Reflections on this vision :

 

Our sufferings have meaning, if they are united to Christ's sufferings on the Cross. In this way they have meaning and spiritual value for our souls.

 

This is why the Blessed Virgin Mother of God says, “[M]y Divine Son prefers pains and sufferings to all good works and to all the charitable acts that you can make.

 

And so it is that All sufferings have been His spouses.”

 

Yes, God knows our spiritual sorrows: “you have of yourselves fragility, … But know that living on earth and because of the stain of original sin, your sorrows are infinitely greater in the eyes of God.”

 

Our Lord knows our “fragility”: our tendency to be stupid and blundering, so often incapable of reasoning rightly and seeing the Truth.

 

But there is a beauty in even the most unaware individual, and this beauty is two-fold: first, we are made in the Image of God, and secondly, we have the ability to see error, repent, and change our ways.

 

God knows us intimately because He made us in His own Image.

 

He knows that life on earth is hard, that our divine souls will be burdened at times and, at other times, find difficult obstacles to a holy life that is lived for Him alone.

 

He knows the spiritual attacks that we suffer, which can knock us backward so that we have to begin again.

 

And because God gave us infinite souls, in His Image, our sufferings “are infinitely greater in the eyes of God.”

 

Marie-Julie’s question is deeply theological: “[D]o not our complaints cause us further suffering?”

 

In other words, are we not punished for complaining about sufferings which our fallen nature rightly deserves as punishment for our sins?

 

Our Blessed Mother answers sublimely, by quoting the words of Christ Himself: “Ask and you shall receive.”

 

It is as if God views our complaints in the same way that an earthly father views the complaints of his distressed child: as an alert that his help is needed immediately.

 

Christ told us to call God, 'Father'.

 

God is Love. The Sacred Heart of Jesus shows His burning Love for us.

 

The words of the Blessed Virgin Mary tell us that He will hear us!

 

So let each of us ask, without ceasing, that for which our hearts hunger:

 

+ the conversion of those whom we love

 

+ the grace to live a holy life and die a holy death

 

 + the public restoration of the “See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world” [Prayer to Saint Michael]

 

Why the latter?

 

Because the restoration of the Reign of the Vicar of Christ, administering to our needs from the Chair of Truth, are the necessary elements for God’s sacramental graces to flow over us once again, to wash us of our blindness and our attachment to sins.

 

Behold the Cross of the Lord; be scattered ye hostile powers!

Image result for Saint Michael's flaming sword

“Know that I am the combatant for the good.”

 

The Cross of Saint Michael becomes bright. All of France circles around the throne of the Lord. Saint Michael above, dressed in all his glory, holds his sword… Jesus gives him the order to separate the good from among the villains.

 

The holy Archangel comes down, his face radiant, and he puts a barrier between the good and the villains. From above, like a judge, he says:

 

“I speak in the name of God and of His Power.”

 

He presents the Cross. Immediately the faithful people prostrate themselves before the throne and bow in the direction of the Cross.

 

Saint Michael continues:

 

“Do you want to carry the Cross? How would you like to accept the new crosses that it will please the Lord to send you?”

 

Only one voice is alone heard:

 

“We will carry them, with great respect, to obey our Divine Master.”

 

“Here is the Divine Heart,” replies the Archangel. “How do you want to love It? What confidence do you have in It?”

 

The crowd responds again… but some voices are feeble and hesitant. The Archangel understood the voices that spoke feebly; he fixes the crowd with a look from which no one can escape. He raises his flaming sword.

 

“You all,” he says, “who have trouble submitting… Be careful! Here is my sword; it will not delay in being usedagainst you.”

 

At this moment, Our Lord asks that the good join with others. The barrier rises and we mix together.

 

I see that the battle will begin against Saint Michael and hell, between good and evil. Mary Immaculate watches over us. What have we to fear?

 

“Friends, enemies…”

 

--But Saint Michael, must I say again ‘enemies’? You know that friends are always distinct from enemies.

 

“All approach,” says he, “just and injust; I speak in the name of the Power of the Lord.”

 

“I have fought for you and for the Lord; I will fight again. I am, after God, your protector, your support, your rest. Have recourse to me. If you knew my ability, you would be more zealous to address your prayers to me.”

 

“Lift your eyes to Heaven; look at the threats that threaten you. Without God who sees you, you do not have any hope. Know that I am the combatant for the good, and that above all I will make to shine the marvels of my Divine Master.”

 

(29 September 1877)

 

[Source: pp. 132-34, Le ciel en colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, Editions Resiac].

 

Reflections on this prophecy :

 

In this prophecy, Marie-Julie Jahenny sees all of the people gathered around an earthly “throne of the Lord” in France. This is not God the Father’s throne in Heaven, for Saint Michael, is “above, dressed in all his glory,” and he “holds his [flaming] sword.”

 

Could this throne, in France, represent the Papal Seat; that is, the Papacy which comes out of exile and is formally proclaimed by the French Monarch?

 

Next, we see that the Final Judgment seems to be upon mankind, for “Jesus gives [Saint Michael] the order to separate the good from among the villains.”

 

Saint Michael then presents the Cross to everyone and “[i]mmediately the faithful people prostrate themselves before the throne and bow in the direction of the Cross.”

 

That the people prostrate themselves before this throne is significant, for if this is the Papal throne on earth, then this action would seem to indicate that the people with faith recognize the Holy Father, the Vicar of Christ on Earth. At last, the Exile of Holy Mother Church seems to be over!

 

But rather than announcing the Final Judgment, Saint Michael says:

 

“Do you want to carry the Cross? How would you like to accept the new crosses that it will please the Lord to send you?”

 

Happy sinners! For a chance to accept new sufferings is being offered, another chance for the salvation of the repentant!

 

Everyone accepts, their answers in unison, so that “[o]nly one voice is alone heard: ‘We will carry them, with great respect, to obey our Divine Master.’ ”

 

But when Saint Michael presents that stumbling stone for many, Christ our Lord, through His Sacred Heart, and asks: “How do you want to love It? What confidence do you have in It?” some of the people become unsure, and “some voices are feeble and hesitant.”

 

Saint Michael’s response is quick and adamant:

 

 “ ‘You all,’ he says, ‘who have trouble submitting… Be careful! Here is my sword; it will not delay in being used against you.’ ”

 

Marie-Julie next sees that “the battle will begin against Saint Michael and hell, between good and evil.”

 

In particular, she notices that “Mary Immaculate watches over us” and her conclusion is heart-warming: “What have we to fear?” since our Good Mother will never leave us unaided!

 

Saint Michael, speaking on behalf of God, calls both the good and the wicked to obey his words:

 

“ ‘All approach,’ says he, ‘just and injust; I speak in the name of the Power of the Lord.’ ”

 

And what this greatest of all the Angels tells mankind is truly remarkable when we consider that he speaks to both the bad and the good, to Catholics and non-Catholics alike:

 

“Lift your eyes to Heaven; look at the threats that threaten you. Without God who sees you, you do not have any hope.”

 

This is an exhortation to conversion! It is that one last chance for all to put down their pride in their own abilities and to reach out to God, our one true hope!

 

Saint Michael also makes it very clear to the evil doers that he will not protect them unless they change their evil ways: “Know that I am the combatant for the good”.

 

With charity and humility, Saint Michael lets all know that the victory of God is imminent: “[A]bove all I will make to shine the marvels of my Divine Master.”

 

He will win in this final battle. All that is good and holy will triumph. This is Saint Michael’s promise to all mankind. Those who continue in sin do so to their own damnation.

 

May we all be on the side of God and His Vicar.

 

Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle!
