(I am with family for a few days. As I have mentioned, I am working on some specific, meaty posts. Until Thursday, I will largely put up guest or repeat posts. I get little time with family any more and it takes a lot of time to craft the weightier posts. I don’t want to do it slapdash.

Below is an article Dan Lynch has offered. For those of you who are awaiting responses to notes and emails from me, please be patient. I am working on it and think I will get a productive week beginning Thursday.-CJ)

By Dan Lynch

“As Jesus drew near, he saw the city and wept over it saying, ‘If this day you only knewwhat makes for peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will raise a palisade against you; they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides. They will smash you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another within you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.’ ” (Luke 19:41-44).

“Do not say, ‘His mercy is great; my many sins he will forgive.’ For mercy and anger alike are with him; his wrath comes to rest on the wicked. Do not delay turning back to the LORD, do not put it off day after day. For suddenly his wrath will come forth; at the time of vengeance, you will perish.” (Sirach 5:4-7).

On May 22, 2016, Bishop Hector Sabatino Cardelli approved the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in San Nicolas, Argentina, and acknowledged them as supernatural. This is the highest form of Church approval. Another bishop previously approved the messages.

The apparitions and messages are some of the sternest ever approved by the Church. They warn of chastisements, the loss of two thirds of the world to evil, the great danger to earth, and that humanity is hanging by a thread.

Mary gave the messages to Gladys Herminia Quiroga, a middle-aged housewife and mother, from 1983. By 1990, she had received approximately 1900 messages.

Mary said, “You must be warned, children, the plague is big. At these moments all humanity is hanging by a thread. My children, the senseless person is dead, even if alive, because he does not fear the justice of God, nor fears not fulfilling of His commandments. He wants to ignore the fact that the Lord’s day and his judgment will arrive. Blessed are those who fear God’s judgment.

God’s warning is over the world. Those who stay in the Lord have nothing to fear, but those who deny what comes from him do. Two-thirds of the world is lost and the other part must pray and make reparation for the Lord to take pity. The devil wants to have full domination over the earth. He wants to destroy. The earth is in great danger.

So let us pledge to make reparation for the Lord to take pity, as Mary requested. Please click here: st-michael- the-archangel

Mary also said, “The majority of mankind has allowed itself to become contaminated and as a result the world is under a warning. . . . The young find themselves facing a corrupt, horrifying world. Do not allow yourselves to be taken in by the calamities which you have before your eyes. At these moments all humanity is hanging by a thread. If the thread breaks, many will be those who do not reach salvation. That is why I call you to reflection. Hurry because time is running out; there will be no room for those who delay in coming!

Mary tells us, “The weapon that has the greatest influence on evil is to say the Rosary. She described pride as a giant evil in the world of today. To fight this, she said that there should be special devotion to the Holy Rosary and perpetual novenas, never interrupted.

So let us pledge to pray the Rosary. Click here to make your pledge.

And let us pray perpetual novenas to our Lady of Guadalupe. Click here to pray the prayers.

Mary gave us hope and said, “A new time has begun. A new hope has born; attach yourselves to this hope. The very intense light of Christ is going to be reborn, for just as on Calvary, after Crucifixion and death, the Resurrection took place, the Church toowill be born again through the strength of love.”

    Such an intense sense of urgency and entreaty! How much more can Mary beg for us to return to God? She is pleading so earnestly that I can hear the cry in her voice for her lost children. It’s impossible to ignore or brush aside anymore. Thank you for the heartfelt messages.

    This agrees with Zechariah 13: 8-9 “And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die: but the third shall be left therein,
    And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.”

      Seversl of us are reading 33 Days to Merciful Love (Fr Michael Gaitley)? in preparation for Consecration to Jesus, our Merciful Love, on July 16th, feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. This compliments today’s post. Jesus asks us to accept His merciful Love which has been rejected by so many. In return,
      He promises ys a heart of merciful love and a deeper walk with Him. I love this book. I think you will too. I suggest we all make this Consecration to Merciful Love during this year of mercy. I just ordered 30 copies and plan to ask a group this next Sunday to join me in making the 33 day Consecration, to begin St Max Kolbe, July 12th and end on August 14th. Join me, Family? I believe we are being called to pray more devoutly and to live as Jesus wishes us to live. Not my will, but Yours, dear Lord. Yes, in light of our belief in what Jesus tells Charlie, times are urgent. Let’s prepare! Put on yoyr combat boots! (God bless Fr Corapi.)

    Very timely post, thank you Dan and Charlie. As it happens, the readings for this coming week in the Ordinary Form – 14th week – are largely drawn from the prophet Hosea, and speak of Israel (us) having abandoned God, and being chastised. Tuesday’s: ” They have set up kings, but not with my consent, and appointed princes… Out of their own silver and gold they have made idols, which are doomed to destruction… They sow the wind, they reap the whirlwind”. Yes, that famous quote.

    But, after that, we’ll be drawn back to Him. Only if we repent, and as Dan advises in the quote from Sirach: don’t presume, “for mercy and anger alike are with Him”. Even in today’s Gospel Jesus said that for those who reject the Word it will go worse with them than with Sodom (which made me think: so much for those who seek to trivialise the actual deadly nature of the sins of that place; nope, Jesus confirmed it). Yes indeed, those attending Mass today, and this week, will hear a real wake-up call.

    A peaceful and blessed holiday of the inauguration of your great country to all in the U.S. J.

    Thank you for this post Charlie. Another visionary I had never heard of. I’m sure there are many others too as our Lord works to awaken the world. Unfortunately it’s mostly people who already believe that read things like this and it’s virtually impossible to convince unbelievers of their validity.

    My husband is a Protestant that has been attending Mass with me for close to 35 years (almost all our married life) and he still doesn’t feel called to convert in order to receive our Lord. Other than attending Mass together we don’t share our faith. He feels nothing else is necessary and that all my rosaries are unimportant. I also have two sons. Both are away from the church. One is a drug addict and the other an atheist. This is all very discouraging but I refuse to give up. “Jesus I trust in You”.

    I do struggle with knowing how many devotions I need/should be devoted to. There are so many and each on tells how important they are. But there are only so many hours in a day. I tend to stick to the rosary for the most part.

      I often say that you should choose a few devotions and live them well. The Rosary is the Foundational one, I think.

      Lisa, it’s not how many devotions that count. It’s that you have your heart in it. It could be many. It could be few. As often stated here, do the little in front of you and do it with joy and trust in God. God bless you!

    • Lisa- the Lords time and not ours! Keep
      Praying. The Lord will strike at his heart at His time. My husband is non practicing and says he doesn’t Need God in his daily life. I’m raising 4 children age 10 and under in the faith and involved in the church and I know his non involvement has a large chance at discouraging the kids to continue their faith as the grow into adults. But today is now and I do what I can and pray the Rosary and have faith. That’s nice that he goes with you weekly. Your lucky in that regard! Converts are usually the strongest in their faith! So I’m holding out on hope that my husband will be one one day. God bless.

      @Lisa H. If you are able to make a Holy Doors pilgrimage, one for each of your family.

      Then trust Jesus Divine Mercy to save them. You can be at peace and carry on with your own spiritual journey.
      Most of us are in the same place as you, with our loved ones not devoted to the Faith, not practising, not believing.
      The way I feel is, Jesus in His Mercy will save them from eternal loss, and He has all eternity to rectify the damage done to souls who live in a society that has no time for God.

      We the believers are asked to pray for the two thirds who have been led astray.

  11. It’s the Fourth of July. *Sigh*. This used to be my favorite secular holiday next to Thanksgiving.

    We had a nice morning Mass, everyone wearing red, white, blue, or some combination.

    After Mass, three priests and the small congregation posted the colors with a newly blessed flag. With my hand on my heart, I never felt so passionless about our country in my life.

    200 plus 40 years after it’s creation, here we are, on the cusp of losing our nation entirely. The Founding Fathers anticipated well the many things our young country would face when they designed the Constitution — protecting the people’s rights and empowering them to guide the country for generations. But I think they failed to anticipate one astounding thing — namely that as a society and culture we would so completely turn away from and reject God the Creator.

    We murder our own babies and force the American people to pay for it. And if we don’t actively participate in this horror, the rest of us have generally allowed it to flourish over the decades. Such actions by our government and complicit citizens communicates to ALL of us that American lives are worthless and disposable. Do we deserve to exist as a country?

    The flag used to mean so much to me. Now, I only lament for what the Stars and Stripes used to stand for. I am not proud to be an American…

    I am grateful to be a Christian.

      That has happened to me, too…lamenting for what the flag used to mean. I started to notice the change in my feelings just a year or so ago. I am ever more profoundly grateful for the sacrifices made by our military, veterans, law enforcement and first responders, and good and holy common folk. But, for the elites and most elected officials, and for those who would vote for someone with a resume and life history of a Hillary Clinton….well, I don’t know if there is any common ground to meet on anymore with that type of thinking and ideology. It deeply saddens me to have had a country so blessed be so corrupted and corrupting.

    In light of the ongoing, virulent accusations against Pope Francis, I was deeply moved by this reading as I was praying the Divine Office this morning. Let us ceaselessly cling to the saints, invoking their intercession for our Church and our world at every turn.

    Second Reading
    From a letter to the Corinthians by Saint Clement, pope
    Seek the good of all, not personal advantage

    The command has been written: Cling to the saints, for those who cling to them will be sanctified. There is a passage in Scripture as well which states: With the innocent man you will be innocent, and with the chosen one you will be chosen also; likewise with the perverse you will deal perversely. Devote yourselves, then, to the innocent and the just; they are God’s chosen ones. Why are there strife and passion, schisms and even war among you? Do we not possess the same Spirit of grace which was given to us and the same calling in Christ? Why do we tear apart and divide the body of Christ? Why do we revolt against our own body? Why do we reach such a degree of insanity that we forget that we are members of one another? Do not forget the words of Jesus our Lord: Woe to that man; it would be better for him if he had not been born rather than scandalise one of my chosen ones. Indeed it would be better for him to have a great millstone round his neck and to be drowned in the sea than that he lead astray one of my chosen ones. Your division has led many astray, has made many doubt, has made many despair, and has brought grief upon us all. And still your rebellion continues.

    Pick up the letter of blessed Paul the apostle. What did he write to you at the beginning of his ministry? Even then you had developed factions. So Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit, wrote to you concerning himself and Cephas and Apollos. But that division involved you in less sin because you were supporting apostles of high reputation and a person approved by them.

    We should put an end to this division immediately. Let us fall down before our master and implore his mercy with our tears. Then he will be reconciled to us and restore us to the practice of brotherly love that befits us. For this is the gate of justice that leads to life, as it is written: Open to me the gates of justice. When I have entered there, I shall praise the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; the just shall enter through it. There are many gates which stand open, but the gate of justice is the gateway of Christ. All who enter through this gate are blessed, pursuing their way in holiness and justice, performing all their tasks without discord. A person may be faithful; he may have the power to utter hidden mysteries; he may be discriminating in the evaluation of what is said and pure in his actions. But the greater he seems to be, the more humbly he ought to act, and the more zealous he should be for the common good rather than his own interest.

    IT is so interesting you post this right now, I think I just found this a few weeks ago. I followed a news report about a corrupt former Argentinian official who threw money on the property of a convent. The convent was Our Lady of Fatima. That peaked my interest and that lead me to the story of the newly approved apparition information, but I could never find anything with the messages…Grateful you have posted this. Everything shows to be linked.
