WHAT THE CENTURIES HAVE NOT SEEN
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.

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!
