The Thirty-Fifth Clarion: LOYALTY
"Exhort servants to be obedient to their masters, in all things pleasing, not contradicting, not defrauding, but in all things showing good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God, our Savior in all things."
Titus 2: 9-10
Recall with prayerful discernment what the Blessed Mother imparted to
noted locutionist Father Don Stefano Gobbi regarding the number of the beast
666 on June 17, 1989 in Milan (and which we first printed in 1991 in Volume
2, no. 4 of A Call to Peace):
"Lucifer, the ancient serpent, the devil or
Satan, the Red Dragon, becomes, in these last times, the Antichrist. The
Apostle John already affirmed that whoever denies that Jesus Christ is God,
that person is the Antichrist. The statue, or idol, built in honor of the
beast to be adored by all men, is the Antichrist.
"Calculate now its number, 666, to understand how it indicates the name of
a man. The number 333, indicates the divinity. Lucifer rebels against God through
pride, because he wants to put himself above God. 333 is the number which
indicates the mystery of God. He who wants to put himself above God bears
the sign, 666, and consequently this number indicates the name of Lucifer,
Satan, that is to say, of him who sets himself against Christ, of the
"333 indicated once, that is to say, for the first time, expresses the
mystery of the unity of God. 333 indicated twice, that is to say, for the
second time, indicates the two natures, that of the divine and that of the
human, united in the divine Person of Jesus Christ. 333 indicated thrice,
that is to say, for the third time, indicates the mystery of the Three
Divine Persons, that is to say, it expresses the mystery of the Most Holy
Trinity. Thus the number, 333, expressed one, two and three times,
expresses the principal mysteries of the Catholic Faith, which are: (1) the
Unity and the Trinity of God, (2) the Incarnation, the passion and death,
the resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
"If 333 is the number which indicates the divinity, he who wants to put
himself above God himself is referred to by the number 666.
"666 indicated once, that is to say, for the first time, expresses the
year 666, six hundred and sixty-six. In this period of history, the
Antichrist is manifested through the phenomenon of Islam, which denies the
mystery of the divine Trinity and the divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Islamism, with its military force, breaks loose everywhere, destroying all
the ancient christian communities, and invades Europe and it is only
through my extraordinary motherly intervention, begged for powerfully by
the Holy Father, that it does not succeed in destroying Christianity
"666 indicated twice, that is to say, for the second time, expresses the
year 1332, thirteen hundred and thirty two. In this period of history, the
Antichrist is manifested through a radical attack on the faith in the world
(Parola) of God. Through the philosophers who begin to give exclusive
value to science and then to reason, there is a gradual tendency to
constitute human intelligence alone as the sole criterion of truth. There
come to birth the great philosophical errors which continue through the
centuries down to your days. The exaggerated importance given to reason,
as an exclusive criterion of truth, necessarily leads to the destruction of
faith in the word (Parola) of God. Indeed, with the protestant
Reformation, Tradition is rejected as a source of divine revelation, and
only Sacred Scripture is accepted. But even this must be interpreted by
means of the reason, and the authentic Magisterium of the hierarchic
Church, to which Christ has entrusted the guardianship of the deposit of
faith, is obstinately rejected. Each one is free to read and to understand
Sacred Scripture according to one's personal interpretation. In this way,
faith in the word (Parola) of God is destroyed. The work of the
Antichrist, in this period of history, is the division of the Church and
the consequent formation of new and numerous christian confessions which
gradually become driven to a more and more extensive loss of the true faith
in the word (Parola) of God.
"666 indicated thrice, that is to say, for the third time, expresses the
year 1998, nineteen hundred and ninety-eight. In this period of history,
Freemasonry, assisted by its ecclesiastical form, will succeed in its great
design: that of setting up an idol to put in the place of Christ and of His
Church. A false christ and a false church. Consequently, the statue built
in honor of the first beat, to be adored by all the inhabitants of the
earth and which will seal with its mark all those who want to buy or sell,
is that of the Antichrist. You have thus arrived at the peak of the
purification, of the great tribulation and of the apostasy. The apostasy
will be, as of then, generalized because almost all will follow the false
christ and false church. Then the door will be open for the appearance of
the man or of the very person of the Antichrist.
"This is why, beloved children, I have wanted to enlighten you concerning
the pages of the Apocalypse which refer to the times you are living
through. This is to prepare you with me, for the most painful and decisive
part of the great struggle which is on the point of being fought out
between your heavenly Mother and all the forces of evil which have been let
"Take courage! Be strong, my little children. To you befalls the duty,
in these difficult years, of remaining faithful to Christ and to His
Church, putting up with hostility, struggle and persecution. But you are a
precious part of the little flock, which has the task of fighting against,
and in the end of conquering, the powerful force of the Antichrist.
"I am forming you all, defending you and blessing you."
Our Lady is exhorting us to remain loyal to her Divine Son and to His
Vicar on earth. We can do that only through the Sacraments and frequent
attendance of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, obedience to the Commandments
and the Magisterium of the Church, and prayerful discernment of Sacred
Scripture. These then are the foundation for the road to Heaven; the
messages of private revelation are mere signposts on that road. Though
they are important, they are only one of the many means to the end, not the
end in itself and we must be careful that we don'' interpret this message
of that one, but rather pray for the gift of discernment that will help
Time is shorter than we may realize. Do we have our lamps lit (cf.
Matthew 25: 1-13)? It's important not to hide our talents and gifts God's
give us under a bushel basket (cf. Matthew 5:15), Mark 4:21, and Luke
11:33) but to emulate St. John the Baptist in our own time and shout from
the rooftops of cities from the desert to the mountain tops that Christ is
coming again. "Prepare ye the Way of the Lord, make straight His paths"
Fr. Gobbi also received a profound message from Our Lady on September 18,
1988 in which she revealed that the next ten years would be pivotal in the
history of man for we "are entering into the final period of the second
Advent, which will lead you to the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the
glorious coming of my Son Jesus." She also said "there will come to
completion that fullness of time which was pointed out to you by me,
beginning with LaSalette all the way to my most recent and present
apparitions." That ten-year period began in 1988 and culminates this year: 1998.
Yes, folks, we have arrived at the end of that ten year period - at least just months away when gaging it against the time of the message on September 18. We are now almost to July. Two and a half months away.
Do we have our priorities straight? Are we ready for the times Our Lord and Our Lady foretell? Are we ready, no
matter the cost, to be counted among Mary's army - her Apostles of the End Times? Do we truly want Mary's Immaculate Heart to triumph and usher in the glorious Reign of her Divine Son's Sacred Heart?
This can be accomplished only if we pray as she asks and remain totally
loyal in all things to God and His chosen emissary here on earth: the successor of Peter - Pope John Paul II.
