I hope that the following information might be of interest to you. Most of it comes from an extremely well researched book called 'Trial, Tribulation and Triumph' which was published in the 90's using hundreds of Church approved and scriptural sources. The references to Our Lady of Good Success and Garabandal are my own. A period of peace will come following a period of faithlessness and corruption. This will occur, either by the return of people to God (unlikely) or by tribulation and God’s miraculous intervention to end it and usher in the ‘era of peace’.( This tribulation is the ‘Minor Chastisement’ that precedes the era of peace promised by Our Lady and is not the Tribulation of the Anti-Christ which comes much later.) The signs are – heresy and schism in the Catholic Church, general sinfulness followed by serious civil unrest in Europe especially France and Italy coupled with natural disasters and climatic disturbances. During times of great trouble in Europe, the Pope visits Moscow and, immediately on his return, European unrest turns into civil wars in France and Italy. This is followed by a similar and even more serious conflict in England. Other countries are affected to a greater or lesser degree. At the same time there are very serious natural disasters, famines and resultant disease. Russia unexpectedly takes the opportunity of disorder to invade Western Europe and later other parts of the world, so that much of the world comes under her power and possibly that of China. This is coupled with Moslem invasions of various countries. The celebration of the Mass will be banned in all/many invaded countries, many priests go into hiding. The Pope flees Rome and goes into hiding together with some of the Cardinals. He is discovered and murdered. At some point when ‘things are at their worst’ a Great Sign will appear in the sky causing mass conversions to Catholicism (Christ on the Cross according to St. Faustina). The French civil war opponents have fought to a standstill with many deaths. A new Pope proposes that the French accept rule by a member of their former Royal Family (The ‘Great King’ foretold by many saints), this man will eventually become a great and saintly emperor in Europe and will rule very wisely. The ‘Great King’ wages war on the invaders and defeats them in spite of his forces being greatly outnumbered. The King will be about 40 years of age at the end of the war. Towards the end of the ‘Chastisement’/war period of three and a half years, there occurs the ‘Three Days of Darkness’/Fire from the sky – and the deaths of the greater part of humanity. After this a very holy Pope is elected. An era of peace and prosperity follows under the rule of the ‘Great King’. This period is put at about 25 years* until his death, by then people will have begun to take peace and prosperity for granted and to act, once again, as though God does not exist ushering in the Great Tribulation, the coming of the Anti-Christ and the end. NOTE - Much of the above is a very brief summary of the contents of ‘Trial, Tribulation and Triumph’ by Desmond Birch but other sources have also been used. Notes *On Easter Sunday, April 13th of 2029 the asteroid Apophis (“Apophis” is the Egyptian God of destruction) will pass through an orbital “keyhole” which will determine whether or not it will impact earth 7 years later on Easter Sunday, April 13th 2036. It should be noted that Easter Sunday 2029 is a good candidate for the 2000th anniversary of the Resurrection. The “keyhole” of 2029 will determine the trajectory of Apophis and thus the fate of many people, and will probably be a significantly fearful warning for all. It is possible that this moment of warning will turn many away from sins, but will also cause many to “double down” so to speak. “There will no longer be pardon for them” is possibly a reference to the reality after the “keyhole” moment when the Earth has 7 years to contemplate the obliteration of many and STILL people are unrepentant, though God has given every opportunity. Revelation 8:8 “The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood” The impact of Apophis is estimated at 800 megatons. The largest tactical nuclear weapon in the world is about 50 megatons. Hiroshima was 50 kilotons. Much of the above is based on ‘Trial, Tribulation and Triumph’ by Desmond Birch but note the other sources and notes below: The ‘Warning’ foretold at Garabandal occurs, when things are at their worst (Conchita has said that the ‘Warning’ will “be like two suns colliding” – a very serious ‘solar flare’ is expected in 2012/13 which is expected to cause serious disruption to electricity supplies and communications). Within 12 months of the ‘Warning’, the ‘Sign’ appears. Many people convert to Catholicism or begin to practice their own religions. (St. Faustina predicted that, at some point, before Jesus returns, a vision of Christ on the cross will appear in the night sky with the bright lights coming from his wounds being the only source of light over the earth.) St. Methodius says that, following the death of the ‘Great King’, a cardinal who is a convert from Islam, will kill a newly elected Pope before his coronation and declare himself Pope though another will be elected. He will be followed by two thirds of the Catholics and will be the messenger of the Anti-Christ. This man is of Jewish blood of the tribe of Dan. Then comes the Anti-Christ. Ida Perleman (who claimed apparitions of Our Lady under the title Our Lady of All Nations in the 1940’s and 1950’s and were approved by the local bishop) made some prophetic statements including: An event which is to occur in Cairo. Following this event, there will be serious trouble involving Arab nations and Persia (now Iran) and then throughout Europe and beyond. Sister Lucy of Fatima, in a written statement to Bishop Antonio Garcia of Tuy-Vigo dated February 23 1943 said, “If the bishops of Spain listen to the desires already manifested by Our Lord, and begin a true reform of the people and clergy, then it will go well. But if not she (Russia) will AGAIN be the enemy by which God will punish her (Spain) once more”. Conchita of Garabandal – “Communism will return to Spain”. But she went on to say that it will suffer less than other parts of Europe. (www.ourlady.ca) "The pope will go to Russia, to Moscow. As soon as he returns to the Vatican, hostilities will break out in different parts of Europe." [ Mr. Weber said "Conchita said this in a long conversation at her house on 14 November,1965."] Mari Loli of Garabandal – The warning will occur - "When Russia will unexpectedly and suddenly overrun and overwhelm a great part of the free world. God does not want this to happen so quickly. In any case the Warning will come when you will see that Holy Mass cannot be celebrated freely anymore; then it will be that the world will most need the intervention of God." Blessed Pius IX : "There will come a great sign that will fill the world with awe. But this will occur only after the triumph of a revolution during which the Church will undergo ordeals which are beyond description." *The twenty five years of peace comes from the book ‘ The Secrets, Chastisement and Triumph’ by Kelly Bowring Note – Conchita of Garabandal says that she will announce the date of the Miracle (not the Warning) eight days before it occurs.
