Simple Truths About Salvation
"Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ." -St. Athanasius
"No instructed Catholic can plead invincible ignorance when faced with heresy, particularly condemned heresy. ...If a Catholic permits a heretic to lead him he consents to the heresy. Any person who acknowledges John Paul II (or Ben 16 -ED) as his leader thereby accepts his errors and follows him into heresy and schism, in the same way that the members of the Church of England and other Christian sects follow their various leaders into heresy and schism. Such persons place themselves outside the one true Church founded by our Lord Jesus Christ, outside the Communion of Saints, outside the one true Faith defined by the Council of Trent, and therefore ineligible for salvation, according to the age-old teaching of the Church.
"There are still some traditional Catholics for whom such findings, and correlative judgements concerning the Vatican II "popes", the doctrinal errors of Vatican II, the wholesale apostacy, etc., are just too horrendous. But seemingly for no other reasons are such Catholics reluctant to accept them. The basic facts are facts, and the logical inferences inescapable." -Patricia Marris, Simple Truths About Salvation 1995-1996 A.D.
Pope Hadrian II, Fourth Council of Constantinople, Feb. 28, 870:"Therefore, to safeguard Church order, we anathematize...next everyone who henceforth acts deceitfully and fraudulently and falsifies the word of truth and goes through the motions of having false vicars..."

SIMPLE TRUTHS ABOUT SALVATION
"One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world." (Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Dominic)
(INSIDE FRONT COVER)
WORDS OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA
Jesus wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. To those who embrace it I promise salvation.
Pray, pray very much, and offer sacrifices for sinners. Many souls go to hell because there is nobody to offer sacrifices for them.
The sin that takes most souls to hell is lust.
You saw hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. In order to save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.
If people attend to my requests, Russia will be converted and the world will have peace. If not, Russia will spread its errors throughout the world, fomenting wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will have much to suffer, many nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, and an era of peace will be granted to the world.
Do not be discouraged, my Immaculate Heart will never forsake you, but will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.
Pray the Rosary every day, to obtain peace for the world.

This booklet is dedicated to the Queen of Heaven, the Mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope. (Eccl. 24:24)
Veni Sancti Spiritus: Come, Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of thy faithful and kindle within them the fire of thy love. V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created. R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth. Let us pray: O God, Who hast taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
If your sins be as scarlet, they shall be made as white as snow, and if they be red as crimson they shall be white as wool. If you be willing and will hearken to me you shall eat the good things of the land. But if you will not, and will provoke me to wrath: the sword shall devour you ... (Isaias I:18-20)
1861: in French: “Think about it. Vanity of vanities, all is vanity, except to love God and serve Him.”
Unless you do penance, you shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:3, 5)
Amen, I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matt. 18:3)
Brethren, do not become children in sense; but in malice be children, and in sense be perfect. (I Cor. 14:20)
Act of Contrition. O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee. I wish to return now to my Father's house. I want to know Thee, to love Thee, to obey Thy commandments, and to reign with Thee forever in Paradise. O Sorrowful and Immaculate heart of Mary, intercede for me and obtain for me the grace to do God's will in all things. Holy Michael the Archangel, defender of the Faith, pray for me. St. John the Baptist, pray for me. All you holy Angels and Saints, pray for me.

Under the laws of the Catholic Church, and according to her teaching, a heretic is not eligible for election to any ecclesiastical office, including the papacy. The relevant laws are:
1. The Apostolic Constitution, "Cum ex Apostolatus Officio" (1559) of Pope Paul IV, which was subsequently confirmed in every detail by *Pope St. Pius V.
*In his bulla Inter Multiplices 1566 -ED
1917 Code of Canon Law
1917 Code of Canon Law (Cannon 188. 4.): "There are certain causes which effect the tacit resignation of an office, which resignation is accepted in advance by operation of law, and hence is effective without any declaration. These causes are: ... (4) if he has publicly defected (fallen away) from the Catholic faith."
2. The 1917 Code of Canon Law, which was [and still is -ED] the law in force at the time of the last four conclaves. Canon 188/4.

The Second Vatican Council promulgated eleven novelties, most of which had been defined and condemned as heresies by previous Popes. The Holy Ghost cannot contradict Himself, it is one of the few things impossible to God. Teachings on matters of faith and morals once defined by a Pope cannot be changed by a subsequent Council. This principle was taught by Pope St. Nicholas I in 865, (Denz. 333), in the Bull "Execrabilis" of Pius II, 1459, and in the proceedings of the Vatican Council, Session IV July 1870 (Denz. 1830).
Angello Roncalli after usurping the papal office from Pope Gregory XVII ["Siri"] in 1958 A.D., took the name of John XXIII, the same name as the Anti-Pope Baldasar Cosa, who usurped the papal office during the exile of the true pope, and for a time carried out his usurpation in Rome itself. The policy in the Roman Church is to never take the name of an anti-pope. Many have said this was a cryptic signal by Anti-Pope Roncalli (who launched the Apostate Vatican II Pseudo Council) to his fellow "brethren" throughout the world that the "Final Revolution" had commenced.
Freemason Angello Roncalli (A.K.A. Antipope John XXIII) shown waving his phony peace branch on the road to perdition c. 1960
John Paul II and his three predecessors (and Ben 16 -ED) as we know from biographical material and from their own published writings, have all held and taught views previously condemned by holy Popes both before (See: Cum ex Apostolatus Officio -ED) and after their apparent election as popes. (...) A person who occupies the position illegally is usually known as an antipope. There have been thirty-eight antipopes so far in the history of the church, the last one before the present times was also called John XXIII, he usurped the power of the keys from 1410 to 1415.
No instructed Catholic can plead invincible ignorance when faced with heresy, particularly condemned heresy. The correct attitude saved the Church from its fourth century Arian hierarchy. Let us consider the ten plagues of Egypt. One man, the Pharaoh, withstood the will of God shown him convincingly by Moses. One man ... but whose first-born were slain? The whole nation suffered for the sin of its leader. If a Catholic permits a heretic to lead him he consents to the heresy. Any person who acknowledges John Paul II (or Ben 16 -ED) as his leader thereby accepts his errors and follows him into heresy and schism, in the same way that the members of the Church of England and other Christian sects follow their various leaders into heresy and schism. Such persons place themselves outside the one true Church founded by our Lord Jesus Christ, outside the Communion of Saints, outside the one true Faith defined by the Council of Trent, and therefore ineligible for salvation, according to the age-old teaching of the Church.
Michael and Peter Dimond by knowingly disregarding/denying the Time Tested Catholic Theological (1.) Teaching that a once validly elected Pope is Christ's Vicar and not the Church's to punish or depose, --- and yet still persist in their rash pride, to erroneously claim that the documented "Hostage Pope" Gregory XVII, formally Cardinal Siri, **"lost" His God- given Jurisdiction (i.e. stopped being Pope at some undefined time) --- have by obstinately adhering to this illogical, damning **falsehood, placed themselves outside of the Church and under the eternal anathema of Pope Boniface VIII's infallible Unam Sanctum which decrees: "We declare, say, define and proclaim to every human creature that they by necessity for salvation are entirely subject to the Roman Pontiff." -Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctam, Nov. 18, 1302, ex cathedra

(1.)"The Church has no power to change the form of her government, nor to control the destiny of him who, once validly elected, is no vicar of hers but Vicar of Christ. Consequently she has no power to punish or depose her head. She is born to obey. This truth may seem hard, but the best theologians have never attenuated it; rather, they have accentuated it. To make us aware of all that we ought to be ready to suffer for the Church, of how much heroism she can ask of us, they have proposed extreme cases. They have supposed a Pope who shall scandalise the Church by the gravest sins; they have supposed him to be incorrigible; and then they ask whether the Church can depose him. Their answer is, no. For no one on earth can touch the Pope." (Excerpt from: The Church of the Word Incarnate by Monsignor Charles Journet, Professor at the Major Seminary of Fribourg, Volume One: The Apostolic Hierarchy Sheed and Ward London and New York 1955, Imprimatur)
(cont.) In the Athanasian creed, we read "Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic Faith. Which Faith, except everyone do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish, everlastingly." The principle was clearly restated by the fourth Lateran Council in 1215, by Pope Boniface VIII in the Bull "Unam Sanctum" in 1302, the Council of Florence 1442, explained again by Pope Pius XII in "Humani Generis" and in his letter concerning the Feeneyite heresy.
"Also in the Catholic Church itself we take great care that we hold that which has been believed everywhere, always, by all. For that is truly and properly Catholic, as the very force and meaning of the word shows, which comprehends everything almost universally. And we shall observe this rule if we follow universality, antiquity, consent. We shall follow universality if we confess that one Faith to be true which the whole Church throughout the world confesses; antiquity if we in no wise depart from those interpretations which it is plain that our ancestors and fathers proclaimed; consent if in antiquity itself we eagerly follow the definitions and beliefs all, or certainly nearly all, priests and doctors alike.” -St. Vincent of Lerins, What Must Be Belived By Catholics. (From The Commonitory)
(cont.) We are probably now in the times of the Great Apostasy, foretold in scripture in Thess. II: 2, 3 and Math. 24:4, 7-13, 24, 25, for the one true Church appears to be reduced to an even smaller remnant than it was at the time of the Arian heresy. This will not surprise us if we remember the words of our Lord "But yet the Son of Man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?" Luke 18:8. Several times we are warned about "wolves in sheep's clothing." Most heresies in the past have emanated from the clergy, e.g. Arius, Nestorius, Luther.
The Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, Portugal, October 13, 1917 A.D.
Almighty God sent the Queen of Prophets to us to warn us of the events of this century at Fatima in 1917. The holy Virgin Mary appeared to three little shepherd children and gave them messages for the church and for the world. During the third apparition on 13th July Our Lady told them "In October I will tell you who I am and what I want and I will perform a miracle so that everyone may see and believe." This is the only event in history, apart from the Resurrection, where it was announced beforehand that a public miracle would take place at a certain time and place. By the amazing miracle of the sun almighty God proved the authenticity of the message of Fatima. About 70,000 people witnessed the sun "dancing", changing colour, hurtling towards the earth, stopping and returning to its place. Some were journalists, some were men of science, some were anti-clericals, people who had come expecting to scoff at what they thought would be a hoax or a non-event. Their detailed accounts of the supernatural occurrences are therefore all the more convincing.
Correctly interpreted, Fatima opens our eyes to the panorama of world history. The grandeur is apocalyptic. It is of faith that Almighty God sent His Son to found His church on the earth for the salvation of souls. He wanted to establish in the hearts of all men the reign of Christ the King through the teaching of the Church. This is the blueprint for a happy, caring and prosperous society willed by God, "Who will have all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." (I Tim. II:4) But Satan, to spite God, wants the damnation of souls created in God's image, and man, through the fall, is weak and prone to sin, needing God's grace to achieve his salvation. For adults, this is usually obtained only by humble prayer.
Nearly 500 years ago, the plan for revolution against the Divine Order, which had begun quietly with the reintroduction of pagan ideas at the Renaissance, gathered force and erupted as the Reformation, a refusal to serve the Pope and the Church. The logical outcome of this is the moral chaos of today, the undermining of the very foundations of civilised society, and the advent, apparently welcomed by many, of the post-Christian era, which will culminate in the "Brave New World" of the Antichrist system, with the totalitarian control foretold in chapters 13 and 14 of the Apocalypse, and the book of Daniel. The "mark of the beast" (the bar code) already used on many items and animals, is now used on prisoners in some countries. The New Age and the New World Order are often talked about these days. We know from Holy Scripture that when the Jews return to Palestine, which happened in 1948, this would signify that the times of the Gentiles were nearing completion (Luke 21, Rom. 11). A great chastisement, the judgement of the nations and the time of the Antichrist, in punishment for widespread apostasy and sin, was to follow, together with the reconciliation of the Jews, foretold by Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezechiel. God will open their eyes to the truth and they will be converted (...)
Fatima reveals the spiritual basis for the crisis of our times and helps us to understand why the mystery of iniquity is permitted, how God tests us by letting us chose between light and darkness, between loving obedience to His laws or rejection of them. If we sin He withdraws His light, He "sends the operation of error to believe lying; that all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity" (2 Thess. 2:10, 11). If we are theologically ignorant, and lacking in sufficient devotion, we shall not achieve our salvation; we will be spiritually blind, we will not even realise that we have taken the wrong path, unless we obey the request of Our Lady of Fatima, and pray the Rosary every day with humility and perseverance, begging her to obtain for us light on our conscience, the grace to see our mistakes and the grace to cease offending God. We must have the humility to recognise that many of us have been taught error by our parents or teachers or priests or bishops because Modernism, that "synthesis of all heresies" as Pope St. Pius X described it in 1908, has spread throughout the whole Church.
"Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist... The Church will be in eclipse. ...The Vicar of my Son will suffer a great deal, because for a great while the Church will yield to large persecution, a time of darkness and the Church will witness a frightful crisis. The Holy Father will suffer a great deal." (Words spoken by Our Lady of La Salette to Melanie Calvat in 1846, a Church Approved apparition.)
Our Lady appeared weeping at La Salette in 1846, to tell us that one day Rome would lose the faith, and become the seat of Antichrist. Four times in the book of Daniel we are told that one day the victim and the sacrifice will fail. That day cannot be far away; we know that the sacrifice has failed in the Conciliar Church because the new "Mass" introduced after the Second Vatican Council, the "Novus Ordo", is in fact not the Catholic Mass at all. Father O. Baker of Downham Market, in his bulletin for the 29th December 1991 writes: "It is a sacrilegious parody of the Mass. It has no offertory, no act of consecration - but merely a narrative - and so cannot have a true Communion. It cannot possibly bring about the real presence. The principal inventor of the new "Mass", Bugnini, also drew up a corresponding new ordination rite, which accordingly produces a new non-Catholic "priesthood", equally appropriate for men or women, and equally null and void for both. A "priest" ordained in the 1968 rite is a lay-man, and as a member of the Conciliar Church a non-Catholic. Clearly therefore he may not be approached for absolution, even in danger of death. There are still some traditional Catholics for whom such findings, and correlative judgements concerning the Vatican II "popes", the doctrinal errors of Vatican II, the wholesale apostacy, etc., are just too horrendous. But seemingly for no other reasons are such Catholics reluctant to accept them. The basic facts are facts, and the logical inferences inescapable."
(L-R) May 17, 1946 Papal Bulla of Christ's Vicar Pope Pius XII, with His Excellency Giuseppe Siri's name written in it (three days prior Bishop Siri had been promoted by the Pope to the metropolitan see of Genoa i.e., named Archbishop of Genoa on May 14, 1946); Cardinal Siri pictured receiving the red biretta from Pope Pius XII in Rome, January 12th, 1953; A Cardinal on the move, His Eminence, Giuseppe Cardinal Siri at the Ospedale Galliera (a Hospital in Genoa of which he was the President) c. 1957; White smoke billowing forth from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel on October 26, 1958 for a full five minutes (which was witnessed by more than 200,000 joyous Catholic Faithful in St. Peter's Square) indicating that a Pope had been elected from within the conclave. Millions of others listening via radio throughout Italy and Europe heard the Official Vatican Radio broadcaster shout exultantly: "A pope is elected!"; June 14, 1988 picture of His Holiness Pope Gregory XVII with Fr. Khoat and (on far right, one of the Hostage Pope's wicked captors, Mgsr. Grone) at the Istituto Ravasco convent in Rome. Pope Gregory XVII in a series of clandestine meetings in the late 1980s told Fr. Khoat, Monsignor Carlo Taramasso, an Italian Prelate (Bishop), and a distinguished layman that the white smoke was not an error (mix-up), but indeed signified His election and acceptance as Roman Pontiff and that he was *under a decades-long death threat.
*(See Map & Photo of "Siri's Prison".)
(cont.) The fifth column, the enemies within the Church, gained control of the levers of power after the Conclave of 1958. We may remember the white smoke rising for five minutes and the half an hour of confusion before the Swiss guard were recalled to barracks and the press informed that it was all a mistake. Was there a forced resignation? The false shepherds broke many of the laws of the Church as set out in the 1917 Code of Canon Law, until 1983, when they brought out a new code to suit their aim of undermining the Church. The plan of the mystery of iniquity has been mapped out for a long time, and the enemy well-schooled in it, there is no need to quote from works of *uncertain authorship such as "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" to prove that Lucifer plotted for the Pontificate.
*Note from the Editor: It is of record that The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was published with Ecclesiastical Approbation in 1939 (and most likely before '39) by the "Ligue Franc-Catholique" (the League of the French Catholic) which was founded (more than 20 years prior) by the heroic Monseigneur Jouin, Apostolic Prothonotary. TCW knows of no evidence of this Church Approval for The Protocols ever being "rescinded".
At the close of the last century, when the last details of the conspiracy were worked out, several of its leading theologians had already formalized and published the basic ideology. One of these was the renegade priest Abbe Roca. He became a Rosicrucian adept, he introduced Kabbalistic mysticism into the highest echelons of Masonry. As the intimate of its most influential initiates, he travelled throughout Europe and the United States preaching the "divine synarchy" soon to be formed under the authority of a Pope converted to a new scientific Christianity. His works ... a veritable "summa" of the new universal Catholicism destined to "consecrate the modern world" ... offer proof that the present devastation of the Church is not the work of the Holy Spirit, but rather a result of carefully laid plans perfected over a century ago by her deadliest enemies. This is what he writes in "Glorieux Centenaire": "The former Papacy, the former priesthood, will gladly abdicate in favour of the Pontificate and priests of the future, who will be those of the past converted and transfigured in view of the scientific organization of the Planet in the light of the Gospel. And this new Church, although she will retain nothing of scholastic discipline or the rudimentary shape of the former Church, will nevertheless receive her consecration and Canon Law from Rome ... The Convert of the Vatican ... will not need to reveal a new doctrine to his brothers; he will not need to drive Christianity or the world into paths other that those followed by the people ... but simply to confirm them in this modern civilization ... The Pontiff will rest content with confirming and glorifying the work of the "spirit of Christ" or the Christ-spirit in the public mind ... he will declare canonically "urbi et orbi" that the present civilization is the legitimate daughter of the Gospel of social redemption." To clarify this passage we must add that "Christ" to Abbe Roca is not the one Catholics worship, but, to use his own words, "Humanity itself in principle, divine humanity." In "The End of the World" he says, "There will be a new religion, there will be new dogma, new ritual, a new priesthood ... an immolation is in the offing ... the Papacy will succumb, it will fall beneath the ... knife forged by the Fathers of the last Council."
"This triumph will be complete," wrote the French Mason Riandey in 1946, "when the whole world will have recognized the authority of a sole agent, a universal regulator and co-ordinator. By what means shall this agent impose himself? Probably by war, by a third - and let's hope - final world convulsion." (...)
Rare Blessed Agnus Dei by His Holiness, Pope Clement XII c. 1730 A.D.
For more than two and a half centuries, beginning with Pope Clement XII, the Popes have spoken and written in the strongest terms of Masonry's diabolical war against all that is holy, and of the obligation of Catholics to fight with prayer and every lawful means against this enemy.
The last phase of the battle with Lucifer is now in progress, we know it must be resolved by a crisis of obedience. As the angels confronted Lucifer and his cohorts, as Our Lord confronted Caiphas and those who "sat on the chair of Moses", so must the Church in due time confront the Antichrist on the chair of Peter. To believe otherwise is to fly in the face of Scripture. St. Augustine, like most fathers of the Church, spoke plainly: "The Antichrist will be seated in the temple, that is, the Church, as if the people of God were formed of a multitude of the impious" (Commentary on Psalm 7). What better sign and wonder with which to subvert the elect, by tempting them to avoid conflict by taking refuge in technical "obedience." Lucifer's pride demands that his "image" usurp the papacy, let alone his desire to rule the world. The apostates of the latter times will follow the personal wishes of the Antichrist seated on the throne of Peter, largely because these will coincide with their own sinful inclinations. To obey commands contrary to God's as manifested in the constant Tradition and Laws of the Church is quite simply sin.
*"We will not be bound by these decrees." -"Cardinal Siri" (A.K.A. His Holiness, Pope Gregory XVII) speaking in the
royal We as Christ's Vicar, declaring that Roman Catholics are not bound by the unlawful Apostate Vatican II "decrees".
*Note: It is truly amazing that the Hostage Pope (Gregory XVII) could get this message of truth out to the Faithful. TCW was recently entrusted with historic photographic evidence of the Hidden (Underground) Papacy in operation *after an important priest met with Gregory XVII on June 14th, 1988 (i.e. *post 06/14/88). In addition with these photographs from the late 1980's from Italy, a hand drawn map detailing the suffering Pontiff's quarters, where His Holiness was under a controlled house arrest with the words "Siri's Prison" was also included/forwarded for the Historical record. Hopefully this information will be posted online soon. -ED
The Second Vatican Council declared itself to be "pastoral" and not infallible. (Actually the usurpers [purposely speaking out of both sides of their mouths] claimed it was both "pastoral" and infallible -ED.) It taught heresies previously anathematized by Popes of earlier times, in this it breached the binding Papal decree "Execrabilis" (1460, Pope Pius II). The new "Mass" was commanded in breach of the binding Papal decree "Quo Primum" (1570, Pope St. Pius V.) All those who "say" the new "Mass" violate their ordination vows contained in the anti-modernist oath enforced by Pope St. Pius X, taken by all priests until the rite of ordination was changed in 1968.
"Father, the Blessed Virgin is very sad because no one heeds her message; neither the good nor the bad. The good continue on with their life of virtue and apostolate, but they do not unite their lives to the message of Fatima. Sinners keep following the road of evil because they do not see the terrible chastisement about to befall them. Believe me, Father, God is going to punish the world and very soon. The chastisement of heaven is imminent. In less than two years, 1960 will be here and the chastisement of heaven will come and it will be very great. Tell souls to fear not only the material punishment that will befall us if we do not pray and do penance but most of all the souls who will go to hell."
-Exact words of Sister Lucy (visionary at Fatima) in an interview with Father Augustin Fuentes on December 26, 1957 A.D., giving clear forewarning that the imminent chastisement of heaven for man's sins would unmistakably *occur before 1960 A.D. *(which it precisely did 10 months later, on October 26, 1958 A.D., with the usurpation of the Papal Chair from Christ's Lawful Vicar, Pope Gregory XVII)
The messages of Fatima set out the awful results which will follow if men do not cease offending the infinite goodness of God, the punishments which mankind will bring down upon itself, and propose (in the devotion to the Immaculate Heart, by a simple consecration and daily Rosary) a safe and sure way, through the Heart of His Mother, to avert God's just anger. Finally, in a promise full of hope, Fatima announces to the world that good will triumph: "In the end, my immaculate Heart will triumph and a period of peace will be given to the world." Too few people complied with the requests of the Mother of God; successive popes, since 1929, failed to obey the request to consecrate Russia, in union with all the Bishops, to her Immaculate Heart, in order to obtain the conversion of that nation. The Church has still not obeyed the request of the Mother of God to publish the third secret before 1960. It would seem that grace has been withdrawn from very many members of the Catholic Church, the shepherd was struck and the sheep of the flock scattered, many are blind to the errors of Modernism which are preached in so many places.
"Where the See of the Blessed Peter and the Chair of Truth have been set up for the light of the gentiles, there they have placed the throne of the abomination of their wickedness, so that, the Pastor having been struck, they may also be able to scatter the flock." -Pope Leo XIII
Sister Lucy, the seer of Fatima, in an interview with Fr. Fuentes in 1957, said to him: "Father ... my mission is not to indicate to the world the material punishments which are certain to come if the world does not pray and do penance beforehand. No! My mission is to indicate to everyone the imminent danger of losing our souls for all eternity if we remain obstinate in sin." She spoke of a diabolical disorientation of souls, and of the aim of the devil to attack priestly and religious souls as a priority, because they would drag many souls with them to Hell, in the name of obedience, and because of their teaching. She said that Our Lady told her and her cousins that God is giving two last remedies to the world, the Holy Rosary and devotion to her Immaculate Heart, that these are the last two remedies which signify that there will be no others. She continued: "... in the plans of Divine Providence God always, before He is about to chastise the world, exhausts all other remedies. Now, when He sees that the world pays no attention whatsoever, He offers us with "certain fear" the last means of salvation, His most Holy Mother. It is with "certain fear" because if we despise and repulse this ultimate means we will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven because we will have committed a sin which the Gospel calls the sin against the Holy Spirit. This sin consists of openly rejecting with full knowledge and consent, the salvation which He offers. Let us remember that Jesus Christ is a very good Son and that He does not permit that we offend and despise His Holy Mother."
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Go out from her my people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues." (Apoc. 18:4).

MATINS. Quem terra, pontus, sidera
The God whom earth and sea and sky
Adore and laud and magnify,
WHO o'er their threefold fabric reigns,
The Virgin's spotless womb contains.
The God whose will by moon and sun
And all things in due course is done,
Is borne upon a Maiden's breast
By fullest heavenly grace possessed.
How blest that Mother, in whose shrine
The great artifices Divine,
Whose hand contains the earth and sky,
Vouchsafed, as in his ark to lie.
Blest, in the message Gabriel brought;
Blest by the work the Spirit wrought:
From whom the great Desire of earth
Took human flesh and human birth.
All honour, laud and glory be,
O Jesu, Virgin-born, to thee!
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.
