The Apostasy

 

"But when the Son of Man comes,

will He find faith on earth?" 

(Lk 18: 7-8)

 

 

The Catholic Dictionary defines "apostasy" the total rejection by a baptized person of the Christian faith he/she once professed.

 

In a talk given just after Sen. Barack Obama was elected President of the United States, but before he assumed power, Fr. Clement Machado, S.O.L.T., a well-known and experienced charismatic priest/exorcist, now specializing in the area of Spiritual Warfare, spoke about the "apostasy" in November, 2008, at Chicago Heights, Illinois:

 

"…If you look at the signs of the apostasy, you see that most people have apostatized from the faith. That is the sign of the Antichrist.  That is the sign of the end times. 

 

Major apostasy on a worldwide global scale is unprecedented.  And what does "apostasy" mean?  Apostasy doesn't mean people that never believed who don't believe.  It's people who were believers who drop away from the faith.  And that is what is happening! 

 

If you look at the way people have left the practice of faith, the practice of religion, let alone the practice and belief in Christianity and Catholicism, let alone belief in God, it is unprecedented!  You can imagine when people leave, when Catholics fall away from the faith, do their children become Catholics?  No!  The children become nothing.  They are not even Catholics or Christians anymore.  They are not even baptized anymore; and therefore, somebody who is not baptized cannot apostatize.  Somebody apostatizes when they have already been part of the faith. 

 

See how 80% of people basically have apostatized from the faith, don't practice anymore; and that is a conservative estimate.  In many countries, it is even worse.  If you go to Europe, the same thing--how very few people at all practice, maybe 5%, if that.  95% apostasy, heresy!  This is the stuff of the evil one.  This isn't something that will happen in 100 or 200 or 300 years, dear friends.  It's already happening…."  (Homily, Fr. Clement Machado, SOLT, Nov. 2008)

Marie Julie Jahenny, Stigmatist and Mystic

(1850-1941)

 

Marie Julie Jahenny was a stigmatist and mystic born on Feb. 12, 1850 in a little village in Brittany in the west of France.  From the age of 23 to her death some 60 years later she bore in her body the Wounds of Our Lord to a more visible degree than had any other stigmatist in the Church's history.  She lived a life of redemptive suffering, also being favored with frequent visions of Jesus and Mary as well as many prophetic lights.  Although it remains uncertain as to whether there was formal Church approval, she was the wonder of the many scientists who examined her continually, the scorn of unbelievers and the proud, the admiration of her lifelong friend, Monsignor Fourier, Bishop of Nantes, and of the devoted circle of those who made the diffusion of her messages, to an ungrateful and unheeding world, their life's work.  She died on March 4, 1941.

 

Our Blessed Lord & Lady  Warn about our Present Times

 

"The Mother of God complains of the contempt that the clergy shows with regard to her messages and her apparitions, and Our Lord adds on the 4th of January 1884:  "I have done everything for my people.  I sent My Mother on earth.  Very few believed in her words.  My Voice was heard through the victims I Myself had chosen and on whom I worked marvels and prodigies.  They were despised and persecuted….:" (Jahenny, Jan. 4, 1884)

 

Our Lord:  "…I have done everything I could to save My people from the punishments.  Many priests have grumbled and would not believe My Immaculate Word….They greatly displease Me and have offended the Holy of Holies…" (Our Lord to Jahenny, May 12, 1896)

 

"The warnings of the Holy of Holies have been disregarded….His words were rebuffed by those who should have propagated them, listened to them and increased the grace of love.  The missions that Our Lady fulfilled on earth have not been known.  No notice was taken of her most solemn words….there was a revolt against her revelations….from those who should have spread these words in the whole of France…but what a heavy cross awaits them."  (Jahenny, Oct. 29, 1903)

 

"Later on Our Lord showed me the number of apostasies at the time of the fatal event….It will be the ministers of God, who will be the first to begin, not all of them….This punishment will open the Heavens and the God of vengeance will appear with a display of Justice….Never had I seen from so close the anger of God."  (Jahenny, Nov. 11, 1884)

 

Marie Julie Jahenny also had a vision of a dialogue between Our Lord and Lucifer and the latter said:

 

"I will attack the Church.  I will overthrow the Cross; I will decimate the people; I will deposit a great weakness of Faith in hearts. There will also be a great denial of religion.  For a time I will be Master of all things, everything will be under my control, even your temple and Your people."  (Lucifer to Our Lord, Jahenny, 1878)

 

"St. Michael says that Satan will have possession of everything for some time and that he will reign completely over everything; and all goodness, faith, religion will be buried in the tomb….Satan and his own will triumph with joy, but after this triumph, the Lord will in His turn gather His own people and reign and triumph over evil and will raise up from the tomb the buried Church, the prostrated Cross…"  (Jahenny, 1878)

 

Between 1902 and 1904, Our Lord also spoke much to her about the conspiracy to invent the "new Mass," leaving her to say, "there will not remain any vestige of the Holy Sacrifice, no apparent trace of faith.  Confusion will be everywhere."  

 

On May 10, 1904, Our Lady described the new clergy and its liturgy:  "They will not stop on this hateful and sacrilegious road.  They will go further to compromise all at once, and in one blow, the Holy Church, the clergy and the faith of my children." (Our Lady to Jahenny, May 10, 1904)

 

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen 

(1895-1979)

 

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen during the earlier years of his priesthood taught for 25 years at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. In 1930 he began a radio career on a program entitled The Catholic Hour.  Then in the 1950's he expanded to a weekly television series entitled, Life Is Worth Living, which is believed to have attracted some 30 million viewers.  At the time of his death he was one of the best known clerics in U.S. history. Of the foretold apostasy he wrote:

 

"He (Satan) will set up a counter-church which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God.  It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its Divine content.  It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the Mystical Body of Christ….Then will be verified a paradox--the very objections with which men in the last century rejected the Church will be the reasons why they will now accept the counter-church."  (Fulton J. Sheen, Communism and the Conscience of the West, 1948)

 

 

The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Excerpts of the Spiritual Diary of Elizabeth Kindelmann

(1913-1985)

Budapest, Hungary

 

Elizabeth Kindelmann was the sole survivor of 13 children during the war and disease-ridden years of World War I in Budapest, Hungary. She lived in poverty till age 16 when she married.  She had 6 children between 1931-1942, and then in 1946 her husband died, leaving her a widow with 6 children.  Until 1961 she lived a life of poverty and survival, raising her children during a very difficult time.  Then in 1962 she received a mystical call and a mission from Our Lord and Our Lady.  Her spiritual diary was published and translated after her death, and the "Flame of Love Movement" was approved by Berhardino Cardinal Echeveria Ruiz, Archbishop of Guayaquil, Equador, in June 1989, and the statutes of the movement approved for the whole Church on Oct. 22, 1996."

 

 

Jesus to the Consecrated souls:

 

"All those that have consecrated their lives to Me one way or another….today, once again, I am expecting their love.  I desire it ardently.  If only they were attentive and would listen to My sighs!  Help Me to carry My Cross, it is so heavy!  Do not leave Me alone!  It is because I need you that I am calling you.  Moreover, now is the time and the opportunity to testify in My favor.  Do not seek your comfort.  Look at Me, look at the Cross!  Was I seeking any comfort?  Are you not moved?  You that I nourished from the warmth of My Heart and that I am calling with so much love, despite so many infidelities on your part….My Heart is greatly afflicted because of all the souls that are consecrated to Me….They do not recognize Me, and they do not even ask where I am heading.  I see how they live in idleness and boredom.  They are only seeking for their own comfort, and they kept Me away from their life.  They take advantage of each occasion to shy away and they act as if they were not My laborers.  Woe to them!  How will they make up for all the time lost?"

 

"…I have saved you from eternal damnation.  What! You don't want to live with Me anymore?  You prefer the passing realities of the earth.  Can't you see how much I suffer and yearn for you? But you are free to choose, and I would rather you come to Me willingly….Was it in vain that My Sacred Body which was crucified and covered with Blood was raised for you.  You are blind and heartless!  Don't you see what I have done for you….Did I open My Heart to you in vain?  Would you let My flow of graces be wasted?….I thought of everything to be able to suffer for you.  But you don't show any eagerness.  You are just taking it easy and always giving excuses.  That is how your life goes down the drain.  Take up your cross, I had Mine too, and offer yourself as victims…."  (Jesus to Elizabeth Kindelmann)

 

 The Blessed Virgin Mary: "The elect souls will have to fight the Prince of Darkness.  It will be a frightening storm.  No, not a storm, but a hurricane devastating everything.  He even wants to destroy the faith and confidence of the elect….You will see everywhere the light of My Flame of Love spouting out like a flash of lightning illuminating heaven and earth, and with which I will inflame even the dark and languid souls.  But what sorrow it is for me to have to watch so many of my children throw themselves into Hell!"  (Our Lady to Elizabeth Kindelmann)

 

 

Jesus to Elizabeth

"The Church is in great danger and you cannot remedy the situation with earthly means or efforts.  The Most Holy Trinity and the Holy Virgin alone, the Angels and all the Saints, and with the assistance of all the souls delivered by you from Purgatory, are still able to provide for the needs of the militant Church."  (Jesus to Elizabeth Kindelmann, Aug. 15, 1980)

 

Our Lady of Fatima

(1917)

Apparitions to Lucia, Jacinta and Francesco at Fatima, Portugal

 

For six months in 1917, shortly after the onset of World War I, Our Lady appeared to 3 shepherd children in Fatima bringing a message of warning and prophecy.    Our Lady emphasized the necessity of prayer, the Rosary, penance and change of heart.  Much controversy surrounds the revelation of the "3rd Secret" which   was revealed by the Vatican on May 13, 2000.  There is speculation that a portion of that message, most likely dealing with the apostasy within the Church, was not released in its complete form.  This would be consistent with what Our Lady said through Fr. Gobbi on September 15, 1987 while he held a cenacle in Akita, Japan, linking together the 3rd Secret of Fatima with the 3rd message to Sr. Agnes of Akita.    

 

"If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace…."

 

"…To prevent this (God's punishment of the world for its crimes), I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate heart and the Communion of Reparation of the First Saturdays.  If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace.  If not, she (Russia) will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church.  The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, several entire nations will be annihilated…." (Our Lady to Lucia, July 13, 1917)

 

Portions of revealed 3rd secret of Fatima:

 

"…we saw….before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins; and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way. Having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him; and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, priests, men and women religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions…." (Lucia's written 3rd secret, 2000)

 

What of the apostasy that Our Lady speaks in Akita, Japan?

 

Our Lady of Akita

(1973)

In 1973, Our Lady gave Sister Agnes Sasagawa in Akita, Japan, three messages by means of a statue of Mary in the convent.  Over the next several years the statue wept blood, sweat and tears 101 times.  The Akita events and messages were pronounced as reliable and worthy of belief by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect, Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Vatican City, June 1988, after Most Rev. John Ito, Bishop of Nigata, Japan, had carried out years of extensive investigation,  and had declared the events to be of supernatural origin in April, 1984.  These messages were some of the most apocalyptic ones given in modern times:

 

"The Heavenly Father is preparing to inflict a great chastisement on all mankind…..Prayer, penance and courageous sacrifices can soften the Father's anger.  (Akita, Aug. 3, 1973)  ….Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful….With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests.   The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops.  The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres.  Churches and altars will be sacked.  The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."

(Akita, Japan,  Oct. 13, 1973)

 

San Nicholas, Argentina

Apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary to Gladys Quiroga de Motta

(1983-1990)

 

Speaking of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to Gladys in San Nicholas, Argentina, Bishop Domingo Salvador Castagna, the Ordinary of the Diocese, said on July 25, 1990, "Undoubtedly this event of grace will  continue to grow,  It has proved it’s authenticity by its spiritual fruits"; and subsequently on November 14, 1990, he issued an edict comprising an "Imprimatur" for the publication of the Spanish edition of the Messages of Our Lady to Gladys de Motta. 

 

"My daughter, as previously in Fatima, today my visits are renewed on earth.  They are more frequent and more prolonged, because humanity is passing through very dramatic times.  Has mankind not understood that they must be uniquely at the service of God?  If they resist, their souls are going to perish.  Many hearts do not accept my invitation to prayer and conversion.  That is why the work of the devil is growing and expanding."  (Our Lady to Gladys de Motto, May 13, 1989)

 

Our Lady of Emmitsburg now confirms that those living now, at least many of those living now, will see the apostasy which appears to be sooner rather than later: 

 

"Because of your commitment and fidelity, it is with great joy this evening that I can come to you to say that you will see the apostasy that is at hand.  What many prophets and leaders and saints did not see in their day, you will see the fulfillment with great joy indeed!  I can tell you that even regarding Fatima, about which I have said that here (Emmitsburg, the Center of my Immaculate Heart) is the continuation of Fatima, even at Fatima the hierarchy of the Church never really did reveal the Truth; for there is another document…Everything in Scripture that has been foretold for this new era is on the brink of explosion into a new tomorrow for which you have all been prepared….God is God, and He loves you and is loving and merciful; and there is nothing that can change His Love for you, even any act of sinfulness that you do….And that pertains to the Church today, and for the millions of people that have been misled from the Truth by the hierarchy of the Church.  As Queen of Heaven, I can tell you that it gives great disservice to God when the Truth is not revealed, thus not bringing all into a new way, this new era."  (Private OLOE, Mar. 19, 2010)  All there is time for is to love and to unite; and in your actions of love, people will see the Truth.  Truth is so important, because within my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, all things will be made new, for they will be made new within my Son.  Already in the world there are too many people who no longer believe.  The apostasy is at hand.  People of various religions no longer even believe in God, and then what happens to their children?  They do not know God. (Private OLOE, Aug. 15, 2010 )

 

"Then He asked them, "Why are you terrified?

Do you not yet have faith?"

(Mark 4:40)

 

In His great Love and Mercy, the Almighty Father commissioned His beloved daughter, the Mother of Jesus and Spouse of the Holy Spirit, beginning in the last quarter of the 20th century, to prepare His Church through the messages of Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi and the world by drawing together in all parts of the world the Marian Movement of Priests (MMP).  Our Lady has since 1973 been actively involved in personally calling and training her sons:

 

 

 The Good Fruits of the Marian Movement of Priests (MMP)

Through Fr. Sephano Gobbi

 

1975:  You, my beloved sons, will never be seduced by him, because you are consecrated to my Immaculate Heart.  Therefore, you will always be my priests alone, who pray with me without ceasing so that the great apostasy will be in part contained and the great and imminent chastisements be at least mitigated.  (68 j)   They (MMP) are offered by me to the Father as a sign of reparation…The more sin will increase, the more their love for God will grow; and the more filth will submerge everything, the more their purity will become limpid and shining; the more apostasy will spread, the more heroic will be the witness of their faith, even unto blood. (75 l)  

 

1985:  You, on the other hand, must speak out with force and with courage to condemn error and to spread only the truth.  The time of your public and courageous witness has come. 

(313 f) 

 

1986:  If you look to my Immaculate Heart and allow yourselves to be penetrated by the ray of my light, your minds will obtain the gift of divine wisdom and will be drawn by the beauty of the truth which Jesus has revealed to you.  The daily food of your mind will be only the word of God.  Love it; seek it; guard it; defend it; live it.  Thus, as the great apostasy spreads, you will walk in the joy and in the consolation of remaining ever in the Truth of the Gospel.  (327 l)

 

1991:  Many are losing the faith, and apostasy is expanding more and more within the Church, like a terrible cancer which has spread through all its members.  You are being called to follow me along the road of heroic and pure faith.  I am making you the gift of preserving you in the integrity of the faith, so that you can illumine my children in these times of great darkness.  For this reason, I ask you to be strongly united with the Pope who has, from Jesus, the great task of confirming all in the truth of the Catholic faith.  (448 e) 

 

The Pope gives to all the light of Christ, in these times of great darkness.  With vigor, he confirms us in the truth of the faith in these times of general apostasy.   He invites us to walk along the road of love and peace, in these times of violence, of hatred and of war….When this Pope (JPII) will have completed the task which Jesus has entrusted to him and I will come down from heaven to receive his sacrifice, all of you will be cloaked in a dense darkness of apostasy which will then become general.  (449 d)

 

As apostles of the last times, you must now illumine the earth with the light of Christ.  Show yourselves to all as my children because I am always with you.  Let the faith be the light which illuminates you in these days of apostasy and of great darkness; and in these times of such a vast infidelity, let it be zeal alone for the glory of my Son Jesus which consumes you.  (451 g)

 

 

1992:  Evangelize this suffering and divided Church, filled with the smoke of Satan and threatened with the loss of faith and with apostasy.  Let the Church once again believe in the Gospel of Jesus.  Let the Gospel of Jesus, preached and lived to the letter, become the only light which guides it along its earthly journey.  Then will the Church once again be humble, holy, beautiful, poor, evangelical, without spot or wrinkle, in imitation of its heavenly Mother, who is leading it each day toward its greatest renewal.  (468 l)

 

Today I invite you to descend into the sepulchre with Christ in order to die to the world and to yourselves and to live only for the Lord and for His glory….Let it be the sepulchre of your slavery, where the Church dies, the Church which is sick and divided, pervaded with the spirit of the world, darkened in its loyalty and holiness, assailed by the loss of faith and apostasy; and where the new Church is born, holy, faithful, enlightened, evangelical, poor and chaste, reflecting solely the light of  Christ upon the world.

 

In the new sepulchre of this day, may every form of slavery of this time of yours, which holds you under the power of Satan and of his universal seduction, be laid away once and for all, and may the new times be born, the new times of your liberation which is given to you by Jesus Christ, risen and living in your midst.  (471 jk) 

 

Spread the rays of faith, in these times of great apostasy; of hope in a world pervaded by materialism and by the ever worsening search for pleasure; of love, in the midst of the egoism and hatred and of a great indifference toward the weak, the poor and the suffering; of purity, amidst such widespread foulness; of silence, in the deafening uproar of voices; of prayer, amidst general dissipation; of humility, in the midst of such great pride; and of obedience, amidst such a vast rebellion. 

(475 h) 

 

1993:  I am bringing you to the heroic witness to Christ and to His Gospel, making of you courageous heralds of all the truths of the Catholic faith, in such a way that you illumine with your light the deep darkness of these times of great apostasy.  By means of you, the Church will become more and more enlightened and will recover its confidence and strength, so that it may accomplish the task of the second evangelization, to which it is being strongly urged by the Spirit.  (487 h)

 

Be the light set on a lamp stand to draw along the road of truth many of my poor children who are walking in the darkness of error and of the loss of the true faith.  Thus, you will be faithful ministers of the Gospel, and by means of you, the Church, after the painful trial through which it is now living, will once again shed, in all its splendor, the light of Christ and of His truth.

(506 f) 

 

1994:  You are being called to be the instruments of divine mercy for all this poor humanity, so far from God.  For this reason, I ask you to be faithful to your ministry.  Be strong witnesses of faith in the time of the great apostasy, of holiness in the moments of the great perversion, and of love in the hour of violence and hatred, which is becoming stronger and stronger from day to day.  (531 e) 

 

I am the Mother of Mercy.  The motherly task of assisting the Church in the hour of her greatest suffering has been entrusted to me, because she must climb the Calvary of her immolation and her martyrdom.  This merciful action of mine will be exercised in helping her to carry the cross of betrayal and abandonment, when the apostasy becomes general and the man of iniquity foretold by Sacred Scripture enters her, he who will bring the abomination of desolation to her interior.  (536 l)

 

In August of the year 2010, Our Lady of Emmitsburg reaffirmed Our Lord's distaste for indifference and alludes to the fact that we must be ready to die for our faith:

 

I have said that 80% of the world are not walking with God, and this is true.  So when the least bit of turmoil unfolds, you cannot become confused or have self-pity or dilly-dally in your faith.  Your "yes" must be a "yes" and your "no", a "no."  But indifference is the gateway to hell; and trust me, children, hell does exist!  The martyrs shed their blood in the Name of Christ for your salvation, and in this world perhaps more blood may be shed for the world's salvation."  (Private OLOE, Aug. 15, 2010)

 

"Let no one deceive you in any way….

For unless the apostasy comes first and the lawless one is revealed,

the one doomed to perdition, who opposes and exalts himself

above every so-called god and object of worship,

so as to seat himself in the temple of God, claiming that he is a god."  

(2Thes 2:3-4)
