All sacramental graces come from Christ's Precious Blood, through the Pope, down to the bishops and priests in union
with the Pope.
But who, dear
Lord, is in union with Thy Vicar, He who is in Exile?
Thou promised St. Peter a perpetual papacy, that the gates of hell will not previal, yet very few believe in their hearts that Thy Vicar exists, that He must be searched for until found. So many souls have lost
their Catholic Faith, Dear Lord! Very few are in union with Holy Mother Church, under Her Vicar, and they will die desolate!
". . . [T]he Church will be deprived of the Supreme Chief who is now ruling over it.
"Freedom granted to evil will be complete, and complete the burying of good... . That will
be the day the enemies will have adopted for marching in triumph against the Church because Saint Peter and Saint Paul are venerated as Defenders of the Church.
"The germ of faith will not be destroyed; it will remain; but all the flowers of good will have faded away and decayed. Evil will report its complete triumph, but good will rise again
in all its depth. (January 7, 1880, pp. 119-120, ibid).
"In that second fall,
the result will be so great that the major part of the people will live, as of old, without any priest, without Mass, without receiving the Adorable Body.
"I declare that there never have existed a similar epoch. Never will have taken place so cruel a period... .
"All the demons are going to assemble: there are a great number of them under a human form... To be satiated they need the flesh of the Lord's ministers,
the flesh of Christians and blood proceeding from veins in which faith is flourishing." ( Sept. 29, 1880, p. 121, ibid).
"The Lord Himself is going to suffer a second Passion. A Passion will take place for all those who are the Lord's representatives and replace Him, for all those who used to do for the benefit of souls
what He Himself is doing, for all those who command according to a worthy authority.
second Passion, which the Lord is to suffer, those whom the Church calls: the True Voice, will withstand it. Those are concerned who follow after the victim (Pope) dragged away along Peter's road, the martyr for the Lord's cause.
All authorities in faith (Bishops) will suffer that Passion on their own paternal sees: they will have to quit their seats, together with all those who are also commanding under their authority. All will take to flight in order
to escape pursuits and fierce persecutions. The word in the sun is: ferocious persecutions.
"They will direct a compulsory summons to all the Lord's representatives, to all of them similarly. Each one will receive his assignment for departure, the order to abandon the position he occupies. If he does not submit, he will
be condemned to the most shameful, the most severe torture, a torture the like of which will never have existed until then.
"Right away, each one of them wil be obliged to look for a refuge, everywhere and in any place, just like the communion of the faithful. A refuge will be granted them by charitable souls who will be left, but for a
very short time, in peace. A deadly hatred will be sworn against them, if they can be recognized either from their pictures or from their behaviour. Hell has it promised that not a single one will escape and that the whole race thereof has
to be destroyed. That is what Hell promises to all spiritual fathers of souls.
Church will turn into a desert.
"The flood of iniquity will start over again after
some peaceful respite, which Hell will allow to take place... .
". . . they will celebrate
Satan's service, on the very selfsame altar where the Holy of Holies used to rest. Those ungodly men, to the full extent they will be able, will force every Christian to attend. During those infernal ceremonies, everything will
be directed against faith and against holy regulations. Nothing more shameful than the compositions they will draw up to have them repeated by their followers.
"They will spread out perversion, as much as they will be able to do, ... . That (first) marching will not tear upon flesh, it will be seeking only corruption, preaching against anything
which is the object of our belief, against anything taught by Our Lord and the Apostles.
sun also reveals that the younger servants of the Lord -- youth -- will be called towards that infernal school which evil laws are establishing everywhere for their loss and their turning away from faith.
"If the prisoner martyr (Pope) [Pope Gregory XVII] directs a call, it will be forbidden, under pain of torture and death, for any
kingdom to rush in response to his call."But not all churches will suffer: the Lord appoints exceptions and will not allow such horrible sacrileges to take place everywhere.
". . . That will be just like on the Mountain of Golgotha. God's enemies and Hell in arms wait for nothing but a signal." (August 10, 1880, pp. 260-263, ibid).
