In this fourth part of the Apparitions of LaSalette in our on-going series of the "Age of Marian Apparitions" we
need to examine the why's and wherefores of the fruits and consequences of her messages in relation to today in dealing with the effects of LaSalette in the 20th Century both for Holy Mother Church and the world.
Though Our Lady appeared only once, the Mother of God's message at LaSalette was the most powerful and all-encompassing warning of any of her apparitions to date. If one doubts that, reread the LaSalette message
and realize Our Lady's prophesy: Two years after the apparition revolution broke out in France and throughout
Europe, then the great potato famine, continuing industrial revolutions, the American Civil War, Pope Leo XIII's verification of satan's unleashing and the institution of the Prayer to St. Michael, the rise of Freemasonry, World War I, the notorious Hitler regime and World War II, Hiroshima and the Atomic Bomb, the rise of the red hammer and sickle, subsequent wars such as the Korean and Vietnam conflicts, the insidious evolution of Modernism and the New Age movement, Abortion, AIDS, the One World Order, and ultimately the total moral demise of Europe, America and the entire world, and, yes, the Church - the One, True, Holy, Apostolic and Catholic Faith. There is a passage in the Secrets of LaSalette that is most disturbing, "Rome
will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist." There have been seeds of this recently, many
messages from locutionists echoing this. Remember, this is what Our Lady said and LaSalette has been
approved by the Church. Therefore, we must take note of the dire importance of these words. Looking back at
the line of pontiffs since the time of LaSalette, the string has been solid and that especially includes our present
Pope John Paul II, who is greatly persecuted and will continue to be until his martrydom. That, coupled with the times and the inevitable Apostasy and Great Schism within the Church (which many believe to be the essence of the Third Secret of Fatima) we must pray for our current Holy Father, who many believe is in imminent danger. This has been Our Lady's warning to many visionaries and messengers over the last few years.
The other alarm is that many believe the prophets God has sent throughout the last 20 centuries, in particular
Saint Malachi, who foretold all the popes through the centuries, are right on in their warnings. Some say John Paul II is the last before the antipope and that there will be another holy pope, but not until the Church has gone through the painful, but necessary Purification. The syllogism then follows that we must not only be careful, but take very seriously all the signs and prophecies regarding the Virgin Mary's omen that Rome will lose the faith
and become the seat of the antichrist. Was she talking about the city of Rome itself, or more specifically the
Vatican? In light of her references to the Church at LaSalette and what she imparted at Fatima and Garabandal,
as well as in these times, one would deduct, discern if you will, that the Blessed Mother is indeed talking about
the Roman Catholic Church and she is talking primarily of our time. There will be those who feel this is too
"far-out," too severe, too incredible to believe. Sadly, even many priests and bishops don't want to face it, don't
want to acknowledge what is about to happen. Believe it. Our Lady, sent by God, has said it! This Second Eve,
the New Ark of the Covenant, in the same role as John the Baptizer, is still coming 150 years later and, for over 17 years at Medjugorje, and is speaking to many, countless little souls throughout the world. She is reportedly appearing in every country, to every race and nation, and exhorting all to come back to God...to heed the warnings she imparted at LaSalette. Reread her messages there, read Our Lady's messages to Father Don
Stefano Gobbi (To The Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons); read "AA-1025 - The Memoirs of an Anti-Apostle";
read the countless messages from other apparitions sites and locutions, specifically the messages imparted
to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart carried regularly in these internet issues; read the books by
Josyp Terelya ("Witness"), Michael Brown ("The Final Hour") , Father Albert Hebert, S.J. ("Chastisement and Three
Days of Darkness"), Ted and Maureen Flynn ("The Thunder of Justice"), Stephen Mahowald ("...she shall crush thy head"), and a plethora of other authors and books that bring home the inevitable and the necessity to pray, pray, pray! More than any of these, reread Sacred Scripture; read the Apocalypse/Revelations, Matthew, Isaiah and Daniel. Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance in discerning these vital passages. Yes, the end times.
A portent of this is phenomenally depicted in the photo of the nuclear mushroom explosion which first appeared
in the June 22 issue of Newsweek Magazine in 1981 and has since been copyrighted by Father Albert Shamon
in his book "The Power of the Rosary." First of all, though it was featured again in Newsweek the week of June 12, 1989, and in U.S. News & World Report in August of 1989, the week that it was first published was the week the Apparitions at Medjugorje first began! Secondly, the time this photo was taken on the island of Muroroa in the
South Pacific corresponds with the dawn of the decline of our society and the demonic emergence of Roe vs.
Wade! The occasion was a testing of the nuclear H-Bomb manufactured in France, the same country which has
manufactured the abortion pill, and the same country where Our Lady appeared and forewarned France and the
world 150 years ago. Mother Teresa repeated often that this photo of the nuclear explosion should be
titled: "The Fruit of Abortion is Nuclear War" since more than one billion children have been destroyed! Fr.
Shamon writes, "Heaven always accommodates itself to our limitations. On the first Christmas, to speak to
shepherds, God used angels; to speak to the wise men, He used a star; and to speak to the United States, He
used our ordinary instrument of communications, the weekly magazine." He goes on to comment, "This is truly
a remarkable picture, subtly showing Jesus on the Cross in the center of the explosion, and the outline of Our Lady in the clouds to the left." This is clearly visible as are other visages within the cloud itself and below Christ. However, if you look at the photo sideway, you can also see the face of satan in the full upper left side of the cloud. How does this tie in with the Warnings of LaSalette? Very simply it illustrates what Our Lady admonished then and continues to echo today - satan has entered the sanctuary of the world and the Church! How much more can God or His Blessed Mother say to us? Are we so deaf, dumb and blind that we cannot see the fulfillment of her prophetic words given at LaSalette, and now repeated at Medjugorje and numerous other
apparition sites? Are we so blind as to have been ensnared completely by the false peace, by this ammoral and
vile administration, by the pursuit of amusement and the carefree life which says God is not going to punish us,
there is no such thing as satan or hell? Our Lord confirms that hell definitely exists in the Gospel, and Our Lady
merely re-emphasizes the Gospel of her Divine Son. As the holy Padre Pio once said when someone told him they didn't believe in hell, "You will when you get there!"
The time is now! These are the last days, and those gathered beneath her Immaculate Mantle are her apostles
of the end times! She asks that we "Pray! Pray! Pray!" that in these times which will grow darker, we shall
persevere by preserving Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist, and allowing His Light to shine forth through us into the
increasing darkness: "I am at your side and within you, provided that your faith is the light which shines upon
you in these unhappy days...Fight, children of light, you, the few who can see. For now is the time of all times,
the end of all ends." All Our Lady asks is for our simple fiat; a fiat similar to the Blessed Mother's "Yes" at the
Annunciation, a fiat that, grouped together in cooperation with others of her faithful remnant, will help expedite a
new era; an era illuminated by the Holy Spirit's covenat with us in a new Fiat that will allow the Triumph of the
Immaculate Heart which will usher in the Glorious Reign of the Sacred Heart. All we need to do is say "yes"
and do it! The very life of our soul depends on it for Our Lady said at LaSalette, "It is time; the sun is darkening;
only faith will survive."
