With a certain degree of trepidation, I share my concern about the intentions of Pope Francis, given his official remarks these past few days.
As of this writing, much has been said about Pope Francis’ week-old reign. Sadly, I yet have to hear from the Pope himself a clear and distinct statement that distinguishes him as a truly Marian Pope and somebody who, whatever it takes, is decided to fulfill the request of Our Lady of Fatima.
Too early to make an initial assessment? Not really, considering that His Holiness already made so much an impression as to his mindset in his various appearances. To the wary eyes of a faithful Catholic who is fed up with the tactics of modernist clerics whose competency it is to spread apostasy through vague statements, His Holiness’ seven-day voyage is obviously already on its course to Vatican II’s promise land, the ecumenical paradise of apostates and heretics.
Bear this in mind, in any journey, the slightest deviation of direction, if left uncorrected in the early stages, will steer a ship to its doom. Thus, I cannot understand how a Vicar of Christ, with his Church on the brink of a great catastrophe because of diabolic novelties and innovations, can continue to entertain these same ideals in his speeches, as if he himself is flirting with the prince of darkness.
His Holiness’ statements so far, alludes to him being another modernist and somebody in mutual understanding with existing anti-Fatima clerics deeply embedded in the Roman Curia. I can see that his statements though veiled in simplicity, are well crafted, and are actually favorable to the modernists and secularized faction of the Church.
We hear him mention Our Lady here and there in his official statements, but unless His Holiness takes a definite and credible turn towards the accomplishment of Our Lady’s request and the condemnation of all the heresies propagating within the Church, then these acts of his will go down in history as mere lip service to God to whom he owes concrete and absolute servitude.
The Pope is rapidly advancing in popularity mainly because of the perceived humility and amiability of His Holiness which we can fairly attribute to his own actions.
However, in this very critical moment of history, the Holy Father should not be concerned with how many he pleases, or how well he portrays an image of poverty and fraternity. Any hypocrite certainly can and would love to mimic these virtues if only for the adulation of the world.
Rather, he should be solely concerned with the most urgent issue of the day, and that is no other than Our Lady’s request for him, the Pope, to Consecrate Russia to Her Most Immaculate Heart.
The Pope must put it in his heart to Consecrate Russia now or the world will be doomed very soon. Time is running out indeed. I don’t think heaven’s patience can be extended for another eight years or so. May God forbid that we witness again another Pope who will repeat the same lame excuse, the alibi of old age and physical frailty.
The Church badly and urgently needs a Pope who will do the job! No excuses. Logistics and everything else is not a problem, God will provide these. The Pope’s willingness to obey- that, ever since, has been our problem! Yet, that’s the only thing God requires of His Holiness. A simple and honest to goodness yes from the Pope to Our Lady and Heaven will rain down all forms of Divine Intervention to help his Holiness actualize the required Consecration of Russia.
We pray that the Holy Father will have the strength to do what is right and if however he chooses not to follow Our Lady, may The Divine Providence make the Pope’s intentions clear so that the Faithful will be guided accordingly.
At this juncture, I am reminded of an incident in World War II which I once read. During America’s bombardment of Japanese held Manila, a man who was running for his life was hit by a large projectile which decapitated him instantaneously. Yet despite being headless, the rest of his body continued to run for several meters before finally falling to the ground where it quivered and convulsed as if it was wondering, perplexed, or unaware of its fate.
It is my greatest fear and concern that the Church might end up like the decapitated body of that poor man, for when the Pope leaves Christ, he himself ceases to be Pope, thereby leaving the Church as headless. Or is the Roman Church already that body, headless and damned? Is it aimlessly wandering, like a headless corpse of a condemned adulteress, with arms outstretched, perhaps hoping and groping to embrace her lover in the fiery depths of hell, yet unconscious of her own consummated damnation?
Of course the Catholic Church, being the One and Only True Church, will never be doomed. Nevertheless, the horrifying situation in Rome and elsewhere oftentimes make me wonder and ask whether the True Catholic Church has in fact gone into hiding. For the outrages that have been committed by the visible hierarchy are way beyond the boundaries of human weaknesses. Are we not in fact living in the times of the antichrist, where devil incarnates manifest themselves beginning from the top as our Lady has prophesied?
But I shall continue my vigil and constant prayer for His Holiness, Pope Francis.
Humanly speaking it is hopeless but God can always grant a miracle. Please let us pray for the Pope.
