    This morning the Lord gave me a scripture. Three times in the past several decades He has given me words from the prophet Ezecheil (I use the Douay Rheims Bible) and this is the third time. Each of the previous times has been highly personal to me and extremely important. I feel the same about this time. I received from Him Ezechiel chapter 7 from verse one through the end. I have not closely followed Garabandal. We used to subscribe to the journal so I have known about the warning, the Aviso. I thought right away that this wonderful chapter refers to the warning, possibly imminent to us. Communism is taking over with aggression in America. With deepest gratitude to God, I share this with you and pray that we can speak strongly with love to all He brings to us about their salvation. God bless you.

    Prophecy of Ezechiel (Ezekiel)
    Chapter 7

    The final desolation of Israel: from which few shall escape.

    [1] And the word of the Lord came to me, saying: [2] And thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God to the land of Israel: The end is come, the end is come upon the four quarters of the land. [3] Now is an end come upon thee, and I will send my wrath upon thee, and I will judge thee according to thy ways: and I will set all thy abominations against thee. [4] And my eye shall not spare thee, and I will shew thee no pity: but I will lay thy ways upon thee, and thy abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and you shall know that I am the Lord. [5] Thus saith the Lord God: One affliction, behold an affliction is come.

    [6] An end is come, the end is come, it hath awaked against thee: behold it is come. [7] Destruction is come upon thee that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of slaughter is near, and not of the joy of mountains. [8] Now very shortly I will pour out my wrath upon thee, and I will accomplish my anger in thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and I will lay upon thee all thy crimes. [9] And my eye shall not spare, neither will I shew mercy: but I will lay thy ways upon thee, and thy abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and you shall know that I am the Lord that strike. [10] Behold the day, behold it is come: destruction is gone forth, the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.

    [11] Iniquity is risen up into a rod of impiety: nothing of them shall remain, nor of their people, nor of the noise of them: and there shall be no rest among them. [12] The time is come, the day is at hand: let not the buyer rejoice: nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the people thereof. [13] For the seller shall not return to that which he hath sold, although their life be yet among the living. For the vision which regardeth all the multitude thereof, shall not go back: neither shall man be strengthened in the iniquity of his life. [14] Blow the trumpet, let all be made ready, yet there is none to go to the battle: for my wrath shall be upon all the people thereof. [15] The sword without: and the pestilence, and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die by the sword: and they that are in the city, shall be devoured by the pestilence, and the famine.

    [16] And such of them as shall flee shall escape: and they shall be in the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them trembling, every one for his iniquity. [17] All hands shall be made feeble, and all knees shall run with water. [18] And they shall gird themselves with haircloth, and fear shall cover them, and shame shall be upon every face, and baldness upon all their heads. [19] Their silver shall be cast forth, and their gold shall become a dunghill. Their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord. They shall not satisfy their soul, and their bellies shall not be filled: because it hath been the stumblingblock of their iniquity. [20] And they have turned the ornament of their jewels into pride, and have made of it the images of their abominations, and idols: therefore I have made it an uncleanness to them.

    [21] And I will give it into the hands of strangers for spoil, and to the wicked of the earth for a prey, and they shall defile it. [22] And I will turn away my face from them, and they shall violate my secret place: and robbers shall enter into it, and defile it. [23] Make a shutting up: for the land is full of the judgment of blood, and the city is full of iniquity. [24] And I will bring the worst of the nations, and they shall possess their houses: and I will make the pride of the mighty to cease, and they shall possess their sanctuary. [25] When distress cometh upon them, they will seek for peace and there shall be none.

    [22] "Secret place": Viz., the inward sanctuary, the holy of holies.

    [23] "Make a shutting up": In Hebrew, a chain, viz., for imprisonment and captivity.

    [26] Trouble shall come upon trouble, and rumour upon rumour, and they shall seek a vision of the prophet, and the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients. [27] The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with sorrow, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled. I will do to them according to their way, and will judge them according to their judgments: and they shall know that I am the Lord.

    I more and more believe the virus is not going away unless we very seriously convert. I mean sack cloth and ashes stuff.

    This has to start with the Catholic Church itself. If we converted things would be fine. But if we don't convert I believe things will get worse and worse with a whole series of chastisements leading up to war itself.

    But there is hardly any sign of conversion whatsoever, at least as far as I can see. Some, a few, are converting but far, far, far too few to even make a dent.
    It's all up to us.

    Hardly any Padraig. The hierarchy don't even seem to realize for the most part the utter horror of Pachamama. I remember the day I saw it I said to myself " the abomination of desolation in the Holy place." Nothing has changed my mind. The signs are everywhere.

    My sisters says her three boys (I suppose all in their early twenties) are showing signs of conversion. So this gives me huge hope. There isn't really any other way of telling if conversion than to look at those around us. :)

    My Parish Priest told me that his Institute has been flooded with requests from priests looking to learn how to say the Latin Mass since the virus started. So there is hope there too.:):)

    I would hate to think that all these months of Chinese Virus fear might shake down some fruit from the trees. At least a little.:):)

    Also it is really amazing the numbers coming to our local Latin Mass Church. More and more every day, including to the hour Adoration before Mass. It is delightful.

    I think that conversions cannot come about without the enlightenment of consciences, the Aviso, the warning. The unfortunate radio station called "Relevant Radio" is included in that vast sea of tasteless pretense where listeners might get a tiny whiff of truth all choked with the dark vines of the world fruited with lies. Sigh.

    Oh it is truly delightful. Since the Changes--the virus and the uprising of Communism attacking in the US--the parallel church parishes doing so many ridiculous antics has gotten the attention of a few. Pray and wait for the warning.

    Julia Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

    Indeed much of what we are beginning to see around us seems to be mentioned in the prophesy.
    However, I do have a huge trust in Merciful Jesus, and will continue to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy given to us for this time.

    To me we should not forget Divine Mercy no matter what.

    Everything our great good God does is filled with His mercy. I speak of the warning the enlightenment of consciences. It will not be enjoyable but it is the only way to conversion, His great kindness. It will be His spiritual surgery, to cut in order to heal. For those who will.

    I wonder if our dear sisters and brothers in the various Protestant Sects converting any? Many of these people are quite wonderful. I must che:)ck and see.

    Has anyone any direct experience?

    I heard a funny comment from the Amish. Someone asked an Amish how the virus was effecting them. They replied that the virus was not affecting them at all because they have no TV's. :D:D

    This is hilarious but has so much truth in it.:)

    We have lots of Amish in our area. We enjoy the blessings of no tv also. I intended merely to focus on the warning of the illumination of consciences all over the world which will be a very hard day for everyone, to see ourselves in the sight of how God sees us. To come that close to Him is not an experience of the intellect and is deeply shaking.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if there were such a thing as the "Catholic Amish"!

    With a priest in every Catholic Amish town, with a beautifully built Church that we could all attend, daily, receive Our Lord, have perpetual adoration, benediction and just pray and fast for the sinful world without having to feel like we are immersed in its mire.

    When you think about it..... this was the way of the Catholic world about 500 years ago

    Yes, Padraig, Sackcloth and Ashes was the latest message in Akita. We all have a lot to atone, and we must mourn our sins of commission as well as our sins of omission. The laity must begin in the Catholic Church, it's time the dormant Catholics wake up, and the lukewarm must heat up. It starts with us.

    I think the way it has worked Spiritually in the Church was in various stages. So after Pentecost we had the age of close Community. When the Faithful pooled their rosources and shared everything. That must have been amazing.

    Then we had the age of Martyrs when the Faithful had to go into hiding. They must have had to work very closely together to survive.

    Then there was the Age of the Desert. When many of the Faithful sought a living martyrdom by being Monks (alone) in Desert places.

    Then the Age of Christendom. The Age of Christianity being the official religion of the States.

    (Fulton Sheen talked of the End of Christendom..the End of this stage Prophetically)

    Now we are in our own stage the Age of Apostasy of the Triumph of Materialistic unbelief of Secularism.
