CATHOLICVS: 19 de marzo: solemnidad del Patriarca San José

Saint Joseph takes care of Holy Mother Church in her Silent Exile.

[ Also, today (March 16) begins the novena for the Feast of the Annunciation (March 25). You will find the full novena included after the reflection].

Saint Joseph brings some sweet consolations to souls that he visits in their last years. He tells them this one thing:

 “If you want that I help you and that I obtain for your soul the most beautiful gifts, avoid attachment to creatures. Love them, but God alone counts in His Grace. The time that we use to think about mortal creatures is wasted time.”

 Saint Joseph submitted to the ministers of the holy Temple. This earned him many slanders. The world of then, like the world of today, despised him. There was no perfect charity toward the Holy Family, and God experienced it.

 “Friends,” says the Flame,” God only proves those that He loves. He permits disregard for those who are His intimate friends. It is a glory for Him and a profit for the Christian.”

 Saint Joseph is so powerful that, all that he asks, he obtains. He watches over families, and provides for the needs of the true children of God.

 It is he whom Jesus sends, and His Holy Mother, to assist those who die and to bring them a death as sweet as sleep.    (28 March 1882)

 [Source: pages 122-123, Le ciel en colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Fr. Pierre Roberdel].

 Reflection:

 Saint Joseph’s feast will be this Tuesday, March 19. What will you ask him to obtain for you? A holy death? The conversion of a family member?

Have trust in the powerful intercession of this Saint who is the Step-Father of Jesus, and is therefore so close to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Do not be afraid of being rejected or refused.

 Come to him honestly.

 He who followed a simple, honest life will reward your simple honesty.

 Saint Joseph will open for you the door to Heaven.

 Become his friend, and you will smile as you leave this world.

Novena for the Annunciation

(beginning March 16)

Come, O Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of thy love.

V.    Send forth thy Spirit and they shall be created;

R.    And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray.

O God, who hast taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost; grant us by the same Spirit to relish what is right, and evermore to rejoice in his consolation. Through Christ our Lord.

R.    Amen.

I venerate and admire thee, most holy Virgin Mary, as the humblest of all the creatures of God on the very day of thy Annunciation, when God Himself exalted thee to the most sublime dignity of his own Mother. O mighty Virgin, enable me, wretched sinner that I am, to know the depths of my own nothingness, and at once with all my heart to humble myself before all men.

Ave Maria…

Mary most holy Virgin, when thou was saluted by Gabriel the Archangel, and the message from God was conveyed to thee, and thou wast exalted by God above all the Choirs of Angels, then thou didst humbly say, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord.” Oh, obtain for me true humility and angelic purity, enabling me so to live on earth that I may ever be worthy of the blessing of God.

Ave Maria…

 O Virgin ever blessed, I rejoice with thee because solely by thy humble Fiat thou didst draw from the bosom of the Eternal Father the divine Word into thy own pure bosom. Draw then ever my heart to God; and with God draw grace into my heart, that I may ever bless thy Fiat!, and cry with devotion, “O mighty Fiat! O efficacious Fiat! O Fiat to be venerated above all Fiats”(St. Thomas of Villanove).

Ave Maria…

O Virgin Mary, on the day of thy Annunciation thou wast found by Gabriel the Archangel quick and ready to do God’s will, when it pleased the most Holy Trinity to await thy consent in order to redeem the world. Enable me in every good and bad fortune to turn to God with resignation and say: Be it done unto me according to thy word.

Ave Maria…

 Most holy Mary, I well understand that thy obedience made the union between thy God and thee more intimate than shall ever again be possible for any other creature: (“No creature could be in closer union with God.” B. Albertus Magnus). I am confounded to see how sin has separated me from God. Help me then, kind Mother, truly to do penance for my sins, that thy own loving Jesus may yet once more live in me and I in Him.

Ave Maria…

 Most holy Mary, thou was troubled by reason of thy modesty, when Gabriel the Archangel stood before thee in thy house; but I, when I come before thee, am troubled because of my great pride; wherefore do thou in thy incomparable humility, “which brought forth God for men, reopened Paradise, and set the captive souls free from hell beneath” (S. Aug. Sermo de Sanct.), draw me, I pray thee, out of the deep pit of my sins, and enable me to save my soul.

Ave Maria…

 Most holy Virgin, though I have an unhallowed tongue, I have the boldness to salute thee all hours of the day: “Hail, hail Mary, full of grace.” I pray thee from my heart to replenish my soul with a little of that grace wherewith the Holy Ghost, when He overshadowed thee, filled thee to the full.

Ave Maria…

 Most holy Mary, “The Lord is with thee”; I know by faith that the great God who has been ever with thee from thy Conception, is, by his Incarnation in thy purest womb, made still more closely one with thee; make it thy care, I pray thee, that I may ever be one in heart and soul with that same dear Lord Jesus, by means of his sanctifying grace.

Ave Maria…

 Most holy Mary, “Blessed art thou amongst women”; pour out upon my heart and soul thy heavenly blessing, as thou thyself wast ever blessed of God among all women; for I have this sure hope, that if, my dear Mother, thou wilt bless me while I live, then when I die I shall be blessed of God in the everlasting glory of Heaven.

Ave Maria…

May Our Lady of Good Success (above) guide all good Catholics to find the Catholic Church during this time of exile. Hail, Pope Gregory XVIII!

“My children,” says the Holy Virgin, “all the earth suffers, and above all, France. Burning coals will burn the chest… France is on the grill of despair and yet she does not wake up.”

--Good Mother, if she has lost faith, then who will have pity on her?

“My children, she has lost faith but, at the bottom of her heart, she still has some left over. She has not been able to lose it… she has done many conspiracies and projects; all have been in vain.”

--This leftover faith, she will never violate it.

“Oh! My children, never has there existed a time as painful as today!”

--However, Good Mother, there were many misfortunes in the past.

“Yes, my children, people have suffered much in the past, but much less than will be suffered because faith was less developed then: ignorance was great; today all are instructed [catechized]. This is why evil is deeper.”

--Oh! My Mother, have pity on us.

(1st January 1878)

[Source: pp. 190-191, Le ciel en colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Pierre Roberdel].

Reflection on this prophecy :

Last week we looked at a prophecy where a “council of the wicked” lays assaults against the Church; either the V2 council or a masonic council.

That prophecy ended with Christ’s directive to Saint Michael the Archangel:

“As soon as you hear the roar of the council of the wicked, you will warn all parts of France, and you will tell them to come under this tree.”

Last week’s prophecy was about our times today; we are living in the aftermath of the diabolical V2 council years.

The tree for our protection is the exiled Papacy. Here are the life-giving Sacraments.

The prophecy for this week deals with the times of Marie-Julie Jahenny: the late 1800’s.

The late 1800’s were the preparatory years that began in earnest 100 years before with the French Revolution (1789 to 1798). The destruction of the Catholic Church was methodical, beginning with the removal of Her greatest support, the French monarchy.

The Blessed Virgin Mary teaches us that “never has there existed a time as painful as today” [today = the late 1800’s], and that “she [France] has done many conspiracies and projects; [but] all have been in vain.”

The strongest attacks against the Vicar of Christ have been in vain because the Papacy has endured and will continue to endure to the end of time.

The Catholic Church believes in Christ’s promises and teachings.

But our enemies have no such holy trust. They hate to bend the knee to Christ our Lord. They hate the kingships on earth which point to the power of God in this world: the Vicar of Christ and monarchs. 

Masons push God aside because they want to determine their own lives.

But instead of attaining peace in their hearts, “[b]urning coals will burn the chest… France is on the grill of despair.”

When the Blessed Virgin Mary speaks of France having a little residue of Faith left, but just a little, it is Marie-Julie who declares that France “will never violate it.”

Notice that the Blessed Virgin Mary does not confirm what Marie-Julie says. Instead, she points to the sins of those times: “Oh! My children, never has there existed a time as painful as today!”

But moving forward, each era becomes worse as we quickly approach the time of the antichrist, when this one possessed man will rule the earth as a one world government, from Jerusalem.

Our years are marked by much suffering for us Catholics. The diabolical mind control in television and other forms of “entertainment” is rampant, and the result is that there is no room for Christ or His Vicar. The minds, hearts, and souls of our loved ones are impenetrable, and laws will condemn us with hate crimes if we speak the truth.

But we must never fall into despair, for despair is for those without Faith.

Each Catholic who is living through our current era has been pulled out of the errors of the V2 council. We have been saved from a spiritual drowning, as it were.

So we know that others can also be converted. But we must pray and beg for these conversions.

Let us arm ourselves with our daily 15-decade Rosary to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces, and let us battle to the best of our abilities.

The 3 Days of Darkness will end the rule of the “church of darkness,” as Ana Katarina Emerich called the novus ordo. Men, women, and children will survive this culminating Divine punishment; they will at last be able to understand what they are told, they will convert, and they will lead holy lives.

Deo gratias!

The chestnut tree mentioned in this prophecy is a mystical tree which God has blessed and given to good Catholics for their protection from "the council of the wicked"!

Look, says Saint Michael, there are our birds.

They will land on a low tree whose branches are very extended. I do not know this tree, but it looks to me like a chestnut tree.

Divine Jesus appears and says:

“My children, there is a tree which is blessed. It is offered by the Holy Trinity. At the height of peril, at the moment when France will be convulsed, all are to come under this tree, and you will be protected there. In this invitation I do not speak of Brittany. This tree is planted here for the good French, for the souls who love Me.”

He immediately says to Saint Michael:

“Hit with your sword and make paths on all sides. My good people will come to shelter under this tree by means of these paths that will be opened. It will be the home of peace: I will put the righteous ones there. Nothing will fall on this tree: neither the hail of fire, nor the whirlwinds of red flames, nor this black fire which will burn. Those who will be beneath it will also be as happy as those of Brittany.”

Then, addressing Himself to Saint Michael, he says:

“As soon as you hear the roar of the council of the wicked, you will warn all parts of France, and you will tell them to come under this tree” (15 January 1878).

[Source: pp. 143-144, Le Ciel en Colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Fr. Pierre Roberdel].

 Reflection on this prophecy:

The year is 1878, and Marie-Julie is witnessing a conversation between Christ our Lord and Saint Michael the Archangel about the “council of the wicked,” possibly the V2 council, that council which allowed protestants and other enemies of Holy Mother Church to change the way Catholics pray and think!

Pope Gregory XVII was asked about the V2 council by the international press, and His response, "We will not be bound by these decrees." appeared in newspapers around the world.

What did these words mean?

That the Pope, and therefore Catholics, were not to follow the wicked decrees of the V2 council.

What the press did not point out was the use of the royal "We", which is used by Popes and monarchs, since it indicates that they rule by God choosing them to rule; meaning that they rule with God.

No reporter ever questioned why a mere cardinal would use the Papal "We"...

From this we can see that the masonic controls were already well in place.

But in this prophecy, we learn how God will protect good Catholics from the evil V2 council:

Christ tells Saint Michael that “there is a tree which is blessed. It is offered by the Holy Trinity.”

This tree is “a low tree whose branches are very extended.”

It is a mystical tree, because “[a]t the height of the peril… all are to come under this tree, and you will be protected there.”

If all good Catholics are to come shelter under this tree, then this is why its branches are “very extended”, because this mystical tree will be available to all people worldwide.

Saint Michael is told to prepare the means for the people to find this safety: “Hit with your sword and make paths on all sides. My good people will come to shelter under this tree by means of these paths that will be opened.”

The fact that this tree is “low” means that it is hard to see. Being low to the ground, it would remain hidden to most.

This tree seems to be a mystical representation of the Pope and the Church in the time of exile.

What else characterizes this tree?

Christ calls it a “home of peace” because He “will put the righteous ones there”, meaning that the Catholic Faith will be practiced there.

It is a place of safety for Catholics from great sufferings: “Nothing will fall on this tree: neither the hail of fire, nor the whirlwinds of red flames, nor this black fire which will burn.”

In fact, Christ seems to be speaking of the 3 Days of Darkness Divine Chastisement when he says that  “[t]hose who will be beneath it will also be as happy as those of Brittany.”

In other words, the punishments will be felt with less intensity. Recall that Brittany is also to suffer the 3 Days of Darkness, and the fire falling from the sky, and the earthquakes, but to a lesser extent!

This short prophecy gives us, who are with Pope Gregory XVIII in this time of exile, much food for thought.

This prophecy of Marie-Julie’s in using the image of a tree, brings to mind the prophecy of Elizabeth Canori-Mora, who died in 1825, which speaks of Saint Peter descending to the earth to draw a cross with his staff, from the ends of which four trees grow up.

What could these four trees represent, as places of safety for the faithful to come for the Holy Sacraments?

Certainly, it makes one think that there will be a total of four Popes to provide these Sacraments for the sheep (the faithful) while the Church is in Her exile. Popes Gregory XVII, Gregory XVIII, and two more:

“…. Saint Peter was dressed in his pontifical robes, and held in his right hand the pastoral staff, with which he was drawing upon the earth an immense cross; … After this the holy Apostle touched with his staff the four extremities of the cross, from which instantly sprung up four beautiful trees loaded with blossoms and fruits. …. Saint Peter had produced these four symbolic trees to the end that they may serve as a place of refuge to the little flocks of the faithful friends of Jesus Christ, and in order to preserve them from the fearful punishment which will convulse the whole earth. All good Christians shall then be protected under these trees, together with all those religious persons who shall have faithfully preserved in their hearts the spirit of their order.” (Catholic visionary and mystic, Elizabeth Canori-Mora, here cited from pages 188-189 in The Prophets and Our Times, by Rev. R. Gerald Culleton, Imprimatur 1941).

Hail, Pope Gregory XVII!  Hail, Pope Gregory XVIII!

“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)

[Source: pages 135-137, Le ciel en colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Fr. Pierre Roberdel].

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)

[Source: pages 137-138, Le ciel en colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, Editions Resiac].

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!
