Many of you may know of the new letter put out by Archbishop Vigano against what is happening in Rome to help warn us of the enemy within. The links and copy of St. Francis prophecy all relate to this very same thing. God is a loving Father - He warns us of many things that we may fall prey to. We are His sheep!
What to do with this knowledge? We need to remain Church Militant and pray like we have never done before. Our Lady has come many times to ask for the Rosary. Get others to pray it with you (family). Use media helps to pray with. Whatever it takes to get your prayer time in. Frequent the sacraments and pray the reparation prayers taught at Fatima and elsewhere. Offer your day for the salvation of souls! If you listen closely to Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich message - she states that the remnant will be very small. So we can not follow the majority especially if they do not hold the Truth!
I have put a couple of links below to listen to the letter written by Archbishop Vigano and a prophecy that coordinates with it of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. Also printed below - you will see the prophecy of St. Francis of Assisi. This is all alarming but we need to be aware and not be a part of the elect who will fall prey to these deceptions which are unfolding before our eyes now. Pray for your spouses and children and share this info. The remnant will be small. People are sheeple and need lots of pray and guidance.
May Our Lady of Good Success, whose feast day was yesterday, pray for us now and at the hour of our death!! Please share this info and God bless!!
The following excerpt from: ("Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis Of Assisi" [London: R. Washbourne, 1882], pp. 248-250; underlining and paragraph breaks added.)
Shortly before he died in 1226, St. Francis of Assisi called together the members of his order and warned them of great tribulations that would befall the Church in the future, saying:
“Act bravely, my Brethren; take courage, and trust in the Lord. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase.
The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death.
Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.
There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God.
Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.
Those who preserve their fervor and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and, persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth. But the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head [Jesus Christ], these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to perish [physically] rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy.
Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.”
