Are We Living in the Great Chastisement?

Alexandra Clark | The Daily Knight

In American we cannot say anymore that we are living the “American Dream” or that lately we have been blessed with much peace and prosperity. Our Faith is under attack, our families are under attack and our freedom is under attack. When we are forbidden to say God’s Holy Name in the public square whilst others dare to push satanism down our throats with little resistance, then yes, I believe we are living in a Great Chastisement. Traditional Catholics have been thrown out of their own Churches for continuing the Mass of All Times. Unbelievably, Faith and worship of our Lord and God was deemed unnecessary and not essential as all places of worship throughout the entire World were shut down, their doors bolted to the faithful, with little to no resistance from our bishops and priests, not even a whimper from our Pontiff. Our election process is so corrupt that the people have little to no faith in the election of their government officials. Most small businesses have been shut down and ran out of town for not following covid protocols, while big tech, huge warehouse stores, liquor stores, and the banking systems were wide open for business. Thousands of people are dying after being forced to take the experimental vaccine in order to feed their families, which in reality is just part of the depopulation program of the Great Reset, their words, not mine. It is all out there for those who want to see it, they no longer hide it, they boldy pronounce their plans for mankind, going so far as to name themselves the elites, and we are being told that we are the useless eaters. Our times have been summed up in Sacred Scripture, what was then evil is now called good and what is good is now called evil.

We could list millions of examples of the diabolical chaos we find ourselves in but lets just name a FEW more:

Even the recent death of Pope Benedict, seems to be described here by Pope St. Pius X: "I saw one of my successors taking to flight over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in disguise somewhere and after a short retirement he will die a cruel death. The present wickedness of the world is only the beginning of the sorrows which must take place before the end of the world." (Yves Dupont, Catholic Prophecy, Tan Books and Publishers, 1973)

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano had stated to souls on Dec. 31, 2022:

Blessed be this chastisement, which has lasted for over two years, and which is destined to endure if we do not make ourselves worthy of being spared, giving signs of conversion, repentance, expiation, and reparation….We thank the Lord God for punishing us for our lukewarmness, our silence, our inclination to compromise, our hypocrisies, our yielding to the spirit of the world and the errors of the dominant ideologies. It was these sins and shortcomings that have allowed those who today impose the tyranny of the New World Order to flourish in the civil world, and those who excommunicate a pro-life priest and scandalously promote corrupt and heretical prelates and clerics to prevail in the ecclesiastical world. They have allowed, in the civil world, democracy to be transformed into the apostasy of nations and the cruel slaughter of the innocent. They have allowed, in the ecclesial body, the Second Vatican Council to introduce the principles of the Revolution into the Church, as a subversive lever to destroy it from within. They have allowed sin and vice to be encouraged in the civil world, while honesty, integrity, and Christian morality are mocked and trampled upon, if not criminalized. They have allowed, in the ecclesiastical world, the persecution of the faithful and clerics who ask to profess the Catholic Faith and to celebrate it in the Apostolic Rite, while the Vatican Sanhedrin worships an infernal idol at the tomb of the Prince of the Apostles. They have allowed, in both the civil and ecclesiastical world — significantly allied on this point — the health mark of the Beast to be imposed on billions of people, in the name of a delirious plan of global population control, using as a pretext a disease that has proven to be curable and not fatal only after the prohibition of appropriate treatments had caused a sufficient number of deaths to terrorize the masses. They have allowed an operation, long time planned, carried out with impunity by NATO to provoke a war against an “invader” and in order to destroy the economy of Western nations, while it is evident that the Ukrainian crisis is instrumental to the realization of the Great Reset; no more and no less than COVID-19, as well as being as an expedient for Joe Biden to hide the evidence of the corruption of his family and the presence of biolaboratories linked to the Pentagon. They have allowed, in both civil and ecclesiastical institutions, officials to be more blackmailed the more they ascend in their careers, and that neither citizens nor believers demand that the corrupt and perverted be removed and prosecuted.”

The late Father Nicholas Gruner is in agreement with the Archbishop for he also said:

“Our faith is in danger today from more than just the base influences of the world, the flesh, and the devil — in our time, we are in danger even from influences within the Church. Our faith is undermined by the bad example of our fellow Catholics, and even by the most insidious snares laid by bad Cardinals, bishops, priests, and religious. In this time of diabolic disorientation, when even the elect could be deceived (if that were possible), we must be on our guard against the lies of a false, betraying clergy, lest we be taken in and lost for our sloth, our spiritual laziness, our lack of effort to learn, understand, and live the truth of the Catholic Faith.”

St. John Eudes said That When God is Angry with His People, He Sends Them BAD Priests as a Chastisement.

In his book, The Priest, His Dignity and Obligations, St. Eudes explains:

“The most evident mark of God’s anger and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world are manifested when He permits His people to fall into the hands of clergy who are priests more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than charity and affection of devoted shepherds ...When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people, and is visiting His most dreadful anger upon them. That is why He cries unceasingly to Christians, ‘Return O ye revolting children ... and I will give you pastors according to My own heart’. (Jer. 3:14,15) Thus, irregularities in the lives of priests constitute a scourge upon the people in consequence of sin.”

Saint John Eudes warns us that as punishment for man’s sins, God will send us bad priests who are not according to His own heart, who have a different spirit from that of the Sacred Heart of Our Lord, who have a different heart from that of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart.

“The Lord is our Father, and as Father He punishes us so that we understand our faults, repent of them, and change our lives. Deus, qui culpa offenderis, pœnitentia placaris, says a prayer of Lent: O God, Who is offended by guilt and appeased by penance. Wherever there is guilt, wherever the Majesty of God is infinitely offended, there is the need of a punishment. Flagella tuæ iracundiæ, quæ pro peccatis nostri meremur: the scourges of Your indignation, which we merit because of our sins — just as so often happened to the people of Israel.” ~Archbishop Vigano

Our Lady of Fatima herself said back in 1917 to the children:

“You have seen hell [the children’s vision of hell is the first secret] where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Our Immaculate Mother’s warning has not been heeded and we still await the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart. An approved Mystic Said Russia Would be Consecrated After the Full Third Secret is Released

What We are Living Through Today is a Chastisement!

A Tremendous Revelation of a Vatican Priest, Father Malachi Martin who read the entire Third Secret of Fatima , often said of the early days of the chastisement: “God will withdraw His grace.” It is posted further ( source here ):

Fr. Malachi said that there is something terrible and horrifying about the Third Secret. He admitted that there will be a world war and a great disaster in which many people will die. And then he made it clear that God would finally have to intervene with the three days of darkness. And that this was beyond anything imaginable. In 1997, Father Martín referred to this possibility in more detail, saying that we could have an apostate Pope, and that in that case we would be involved in something terrible. We would be in something like a nightmare that would test the faith of the people and that the faith of the majority would be shattered. He said If this happens, the kingdom of darkness would have the prize and everything would have to go underground.

As reported by Malachi Martin, the Third Secret covers three main themes.

1) A physical punishment to nations, involving catastrophes, man-made or natural, on land, in water, and in the atmosphere.

2) A spiritual punishment, much more terrifying and distressing, especially for Roman Catholics than physical difficulties, which would consist of the disappearance of the faith, a period of widespread infidelity in many countries.

3) And third, that Russia was the regulator of the Fatima calendar. The role of Russia is very important, because the cure for the ills of the world will begin in Russia.

What Will Mark the End of the Chastisement?

Fr. Culleton said in 1941 in his book, Prophets for Our Times (emphasis mine):

When everything seems hopeless for the Christian forces God will work a "wonderful miracle," or as some prophets refer to it, "a great event" or "a terrible event," in favor of His own. During this phenomenon the truly holy will not be harmed. and terrible though it will be. Yet we may take consolation in the fact that it will mark the end of God's chastisements. It would seem that the event mentioned vaguely by so many seers, is that specified by others as three days of darkness with the sun and the moon, as it were. turning to blood. The air will be poisoned, thus killing off most of the enemies of Christ's Church. During these three Jays the only light available to men will be blessed candles. and one candle will burn the entire period. However. even blessed candles will not light in the houses of the godless, yet once the candle is lit by one in the state of grace, it will not burn out until the three day's darkness is over. This "great event" will usher in peace to the troubled world. It would be a sort of reenactment of the three hours of darkness "over the whole earth" at Christ's crucifixion, and a preview of that which will mark the end of the reign of Anti-Christ.”

Even saints have mentioned the 3 days of darkness including but not limited to St. Padre Pio (Watch here: We Were Warned: The Three Days of Darkness According to Padre Pio), Blessed Anna Maria Taigi, Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora, Blessed Mary of Jesus Crucified and Marie-Julie Jahenny.

And guess what? The description of the 3 days of darkness also coincides with what is mentioned in the Bible:

"I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD Joel 2:30-31. "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: " Matthew: 24-29

Today, many are starting to talk about it and prepare their families for the 3 days of darkness. Dr. Taylor Marshall recently did a video here and LifeSiteNews Editor John-Henry Westen did a video here.

What are the Facts on the 3 Days of Darkness According to these Stigmatists & Saints?

St. Padre Pio 1950:

"Keep your windows well covered. Do not look out. Light a blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the rosary. Read spiritual books. Make acts of Spiritual Communion, also acts of love, which are so pleasing to Us. Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the ground, in order that many souls may be saved. Do not go outside the house. Provide yourself with sufficient food. The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear...."

Blessed Anna-Maria Taigi (19th century, Italy): "God will send two punishments: one will be in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy." "All the enemies of the Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of a few whom God will soon convert. The air shall be infected by demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms." Marie-Julie Jahenny of La Fraudais (19th century, France): Marie-Julie announced the three days of darkness during which the infernal powers will be loosed and will execute all the enemies of God. "The crisis will explode suddenly; the punishments will be shared by all and will succeed one another without interruption... "( January 4, 1884). 1. "The three days of darkness will be on a THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. Days of the Most Holy Sacrament, of the Cross and Our Lady. . . . three days less one night."

2. "The earth will be covered in darkness, says Our Lady on 20th of September 1882, AND HELL WILL BE LOOSED ON EARTH. Thunder and lightning will cause those who have no faith or trust in My Power, to die of fear." 3. "During these three days of terrifying darkness, no windows must be opened, because no one will be able to see the earth and the terrible colour it will have in those days of punishment without dying at once... " 4. "The sky will be on fire, the earth will split... During these three days of darkness let the blessed candle be lighted everywhere, no other light will shine.... "

5. "NO ONE OUTSIDE A SHELTER.. will survive. The earth will shake as at the judgement and fear will be great. Yes, We will listen to the prayers of your friends ; NOT ONE WILL PERISH. We will need them to publish the glory of the Cross.... "(8th of December 1882). 6. " THE CANDLES OF BLESSED WAX ALONE WILL GIVE LIGHT during this horrible darkness. ONE CANDLE alone will be enough for the duration of this night of hell... In the homes of the wicked and blasphemers these candles will give NO LIGHT." (Note that those wearing the Purple Scapular will also be able to see as if it was day) 7. "And Our Lady states : Everything will shake except the piece of furniture on which the blessed candle is burning. This will not shake. You will all gather around with the crucifix and my blessed picture. This is what will keep away this terror"

8. "During this darkness the devils and the wicked will take on THE MOST HIDEOUS SHAPES... red clouds like blood will move across the sky. The crash of the thunder will shake the earth and sinister lightning will streak the heavens out of season. The earth will be shaken to its foundations. The sea will rise, its roaring waves will spread over the continent..." 9. "THE EARTH WILL BECOME LIKE A VAST CEMETERY. The bodies of the wicked and the just will cover the ground." 10. "Three-quarters of the population of the globe will disappear. Half the population of France will be destroyed." (Marquis de la Franquerie, Marie-Julie Jahenny)

Let us Beg for an End in This Current Chastisement!

Archbishop Vigano said it perfectly, let us echo this desire in our own hearts:

“Miserere nostri, Domine, miserere nostri. Fiat misericordia tua, Domine, super nos, quemadmodum speravimus in te. Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us. May Thy mercy be upon us, Lord, in the measure that we have hoped in You. Have mercy on Your children who have been abandoned by their rulers and shepherds. Have mercy on those who, precisely because they do not wallow in the false illusions of this age but live by the blessed Hope of Your holy help, find in You the strength to fight the good fight, whether conducted in the family or in the workplace, from the seats of Parliament or from the editorial offices of a newspaper, from the pulpit of a country church or from the cell of a convent. Have mercy on those who do not resign themselves to the establishment of the hell on earth of the New World Order, nor to the no-less-infernal apostasy of irenic ecumenism.

And if we ask for an end to the scourges of this 2022, preparing to invoke with the Veni Creator the gifts of the Paraclete at the beginning of 2023, let us do so with the trusting humility of the prodigal son: Father, I have sinned against Heaven and against you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son (Lk 15:21). We do this by renewing our determination to obey God rather than men (Acts 5:29), when men abuse their authority by offending and disobeying Him in temporal and spiritual things.

The Te Deum is a hymn of thanksgiving for victory, a song of triumph. But this triumph is not the passing triumph of men. Rather it is the eternal triumph of the Son of God, Who conquered Satan, not with armies and angelic hosts, but by dying on the Cross, an instrument of ignominy transformed into a banner of glory by the Blood of the Lamb. Christ’s victory — Ego vici mundum, I have overcome the world, Our Lord assures us (Jn 16:33) — is accomplished on the triumphal way to Calvary, which the entire Mystical Body must follow, even to the passio Ecclesiæ, following the example of the Divine Redeemer, its Head. If we do not unite ourselves to the Passion of Christ, we will not be able to rise with Him and sit at His right hand in the blessed glory of Heaven. If we do not fight against sin under the banner of Christ and the Blessed Virgin, we will not be able to celebrate the final triumph over the ancient Serpent and his followers.

If we do not rouse ourselves from torpor but instead remain simply watching the scoundrels who rage against the Church and humanity, seeking to cancel every trace of Christ, we have no reason to thank the Lord by singing the Te Deum, because we will have remained insensitive to His punishments and to the many warnings that He deigns to send us to urge us to reciprocate His love, that perfect and infinite love which enabled the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity to become Incarnate in order to redeem us. Then we will be deserving of that dystopian nightmare which the servants of Masonic globalism have been preparing for us for years and of which we have had a terrifying foretaste in the recent past."
