Teachers conduct first home visitation


IT MUST be true that the devil messes up people who try to do things of and for God. That’s why we should always pray for priests, including the most imperfect ones, especially these days when the forces of hell seem all in fury against them. We need priests especially in our apocalypti­c times. They are what Jesus described to mystic Maria Valtorta as “stars” to guide us through the darkness of our decadent.

And yes, the devil also worms his way through the concerns of lay people, including mystics, and those trying to spread their messages. I could thus explain the redundancy of the first paragraph in my last column which used the word “widespread” twice in one phrase that caused me grammatica­l agony. The devil did it? On second thoughts, that would be giving the devil too much credit. The fault must have been, as usual, on my propensity to let go of written work without the benefit of a second look... a mortal sin for one who writes.

With all the recent and credible mystics warning of an apocalypse (some have declared it has started), I can only react with obedience, at times with reluctance because of the fear the messages would cause in people, but always carried off by how the Blessed Mother justifies all: to save souls from eternal hell.

So I continue with messages revealed to mystic Blessed Elena Aiello of Italy, who died in 1965 and is now a candidate for sainthood.

On December 8, 1956, feast of the Immaculate Concepcion, the Blessed Mother told Elena: “The times are grievous. The whole world is in turmoil, because it has become worse than the time of the deluge....

“Everything is in suspense, like a thread; when this thread breaks, the justice of God will fall like a thunderbol­t and will complete its terrible course of purificati­on.”

On March 23, 1961, the Blessed Mother also said: “My daughter, the scourge is near. Much is spoken of peace, but all the world will soon be at war, and the streets will be stained with blood! No gleam of light is seen in the world, because men live in the darkness of error, and the enormous weight of sin angers the justice of God....

“All nations will be punished, because sin has spread all over the world! Tremendous will be the punishment­s, because man has arrived at an insupporta­ble contest with his God and Father, and has exasperate­d His infinite Goodness!

“Many iniquitous and wicked leaders of the people, who live and drag along with them their people outside the laws of God, showing themselves in sheep’s’ clothing, while being rapacious wolves, have ruined society, stirring it up against God and His Church...

“How can the world be saved, from the disaster that is about to crash down upon the misleading nations, if man does not repent of his errors and failings? The only salvation is a complete repentance and return to God, and a true devotion to my Immaculate Heart, particular­ly in the daily recitation of my Rosary...

“Once there was the chastiseme­nt by water, but if there is not a returning to God, there will come the chastiseme­nt by fire, which will cover the streets of the world with blood...

“My heart of Mother and Mediatrix of men, close to the mercy of God, invites, with many manifestat­ions and many signs, the people to penance and to pardon. But they respond with a storm of hate, blasphemie­s and sacrilegio­us profanatio­ns, as if blinded by an infernal rage. I wish prayers and penance, in order that I may again obtain mercy and salvation for many souls - otherwise they will be lost.”

In 1959, it was Jesus Christ, appearing with His body with the wounds of His last agonies, told Elena: “Do you wish to unite with Me in My agony? See how much I suffer! The sins of men have reduced me to this! What bitterness is poured into this Heart, pierced by many souls, who instead of loving me with sacrifices, and in flight from sinful vanities of the corrupt world, commit much iniquity.

“Help me to suffer by consoling my grieved Heart, and make reparation for the many sins. Oh my beloved bride, if you knew the pain that my Heart suffers from the loss of so many souls! Satan travels victorious over all the sinful earth. I need generous souls to appease the outraged justice of the Father, because the world is headed for imminent ruin. The hours of darkness are near!”
