Pope St. Pius X said he saw in a vision a Successor with the same name as his fleeing Rome in some kind of invasion. Both Pope St. Pius X (whose birth name was Joseph Sarto) and Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) have the same first name, so many have thought it would be Pope Benedict XVI that is spoken of. Some more recent prophesies have more explicitly suggested this. It would fit with St. Malachy's prophesy. There is also the vision of Pope Leo XIII - before composing the St. Michael Exorcism prayer - that the enemies of God would set up the throne of falsehood right where the Lord had set up the Throne of Peter i.e. in Rome. Cardinal Manning, Vatican I Council Father, gives one possible interpretation of passages in the Apocalpyse and 2 Thess, saying that Anti-Christ cannot come, until the Pope is taken out of the way; and that, the Temple of God where Anti-Christ sits could well be Rome itself before its destruction. Cardinal Manning: "The apostasy of the city of Rome from the Vicar of Christ, and its destruction by Antichrist, may be thoughts so new to many Catholics, that I think it well to recite the text of theologians in the greatest repute. First, Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Viegas, Suarez, Bellarmine, and Bosius, that Rome shall apostatise from the faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ, and return to its ancient paganism ... Cornelius à Lapide sums up what may be said to be the common interpretation of theologians ... Such they believe will be the history of Rome: pagan under the emperors, Christian under the Apostles, faithful under the Pontiffs, apostate under the Revolution, and pagan under Antichrist." Thoughts? This from Fr. Michel: From: https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/20...about-the-warning-illumination-of-conscience/ Father Michel Rodrigue of the Apostolic Fraternity of Saint Benedict (Canada) – Facebook Post about The Warning (Illumination of Conscience) MAY 23, 2019 / A SOUL Father Michel Rodrigue of the Apostolic Fraternity of Saint Benedict (Canada) – Facebook Post about The Warning (Illumination of Conscience) "Introduction (By a soul): I, “a soul,” was sent the below Facebook post by two friends of this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, and I have decided to post it to this blog, so it can reach a greater audience. Father Michel Rodrigue is a very holy French priest from Quebec, Canada, and is very good friends with Prophet John Leary (http://www.johnleary.com). In fact, Father Michel and John have often preached together for a number of years at the Gospa House in Southern California, along with other visionaries and chosen messengers of heavenly messages. If you follow John Leary’s messages from Heaven and this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, then much of what Father Michel has said you are already familiar with. However, this Facebook post condenses much of the essential information from John’s heavenly messages in a thoroughly detailed manner. So, it is very good for understanding how events will proceed on earth with the Warning (Illumination of Conscience) and afterwards. I recommend that everyone share it with as many people that you know so more souls can be saved. However, I want to make a brief statement about this post with respect to the pope. In the post, Father Michel mentions that the pope will flee the Vatican before the Warning happens and will be killed. This actually collaborates a prophecy given in the Book of Truth to 7th messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, in which God reveals that the pope will flee Rome before the Warning. However, in the Book of Truth, it is clear that the pope that flees is Pope Benedict XVI. In the posting below, it is unclear if the pope who flees and is killed is Pope Francis. Since I was not present at the talks of Father Michel, I do not know. However, I do know that there has been some recent prophecy in the past year and a half that suggests it is both men who flee and are martyred. I also know that I was given a similar prophecy in March 2018 about both men fleeing and being martyred. I also know from some prophecy that suggests the men flee due to an invasion caused by Islam. And according to Garabandal prophecies, we know that communism will come again; and some prophecies suggest that Russia will invade Europe. The one truth that I do know is that people underestimate the power of the Crusade Prayers that were provided to us by Heaven in the Book of Truth given to Maria Divine Mercy. The many people that are praying daily the Crusade Prayers has altered the course of the Apocalypse and the events that will happen before and after the Warning takes place. Because of the Book of Truth, satan is uncertain if he can use Pope Francis as the false prophet as he originally intended. Much of what happens is dependent on free-will. So, some prophecy suggests that both men will flee due to an Islamic invasion, while other prophecy suggests that Pope Benedict XVI flees due to internal strife within the Vatican which is resulting in the Great Schism we see brewing right now. I ask that followers of this blog pray for both Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis for the intention that both men live out their vows to God and will be saved in the end. For my part, I am still working behind the scenes to get my Appeal to Pope Francis in the hopes of saving his soul at the Warning. But, so much of it is dependent on prayer and people having open hearts as to whether this will ultimately happen. Finally, I want to stress that we have to pray mightily that the country of the United States of America does not fall to the New World Order. We must pray that abortion is overturned in the U.S., because that is the only way our country will be blessed by God and not fall. Every prayer warrior around the world has got to pray for the U.S., because the Great Tribulation will be so much worse if this country falls and there is no country to defend Israel and Christianity around the world. Please pray daily for this intention, because it is critical for the future of the world. Thank you. God bless, Love, a soul Subject: Facebook post by a friend who saw Fr Michel twice last week I was blessed with the opportunity to listen to Father Michel twice in the past week at two different parishes. He provided his last presentation ever tonight in the United States. The Eternal Father told him that he will not come back to the United States. In summary Father Michel said St Michael has instructed him to tell people to do a life long confession in 2019. He described the events that will happen in graphic detail and he was clear that this will all happen soon. Fr Michel has been to heaven and was blessed to be handed the Child Jesus by Saint Joseph. When he questioned the fact that he is not worthy, the Immaculate Virgin Mary said to him “you hold My Son at every mass do you not?” Fr Michel has seen St Michael at least 3 times and saw Saint Joseph yesterday. He has an amazing testimony and he speaks truth. He said to we should have a 3 month supply of food in your home. He said we must consecrate our home to the Holy Family. He said this will allow your home to be a temporary refuge until the Holy Spirit guides you to a permanent refuge. All you need will be provided at the refuges that you will be guided to if one surrenders to God. He said a soul must go to confession at least once a month to be prepared. He said that after the Warning (when we will see Jesus on the Cross in the sky with Rays coming from His Sacred Wound that Blood and Water gushed forth as a font of mercy for us) that every soul will encounter Our Blessed Lord. He said small tongues of fire will land on every soul during this process which will last about 15 minutes. Every soul will see their life sins that have not been confessed. If a soul is currently on its way to purgatory, hell or heaven they will experience this. He also said that after this event mankind will have 6 weeks of calm before all hell breaks loose on earth. 6 weeks to get to confession and make a decision. He said priests will Baptize 100s at a time and all people will be shown the truth of Christ’s One Holy Catholic Apostolic Church. Priests will spend day and night in the confessional.
