“The Church will be in eclipse, the world will be in dismay.” ~ Mélanie Calvat, seer of La Salette, 1846.
Mélanie added, “I didn’t see, I don’t see any Great Pope or Great Monarch before an extremely great tribulation, horrifying, terrible and general for all Christendom. But before that time, twice there will be a short lived peace; two shaky, servile, doubtful popes.”
This blog was created primarily to keep readers abreast of Gabriel’s Trumpet, set to initiate the Great Tribulation. To that end, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who last year called on Pope Francis to resign, and who has since been holed up in a secure location, delivered a recent address to the Catholic Identity Conference, sponsored by Michael Matt’s Remnant Press.
Viganò spoke of an “eclipse of the Church” (video below), tossing in other arcane apocalyptic terms like, “Ministry of Iniquity,” (2 Thessalonians 2:7); “Church of the Antichrist(s), (First and Second Epistles of John);” New World Order, (Daniel 7:23), and “I [God] will put enmity between you [the serpent] and the Woman, and between your offspring and hers,” (Genesis 3:15).
Clearly, Viganò hears a trumpet tuning.
The dark eclipse of the “Church of the Antichrist” is upon us now. The term refers loosely to all pontificates since Vatican II, to modernism, the synthesis of all heresies, according to Pope St Pius X (1907), and to the New World Order. The NWO envisages the Catholic Church as its humanistic religious adjunct subservient to its authoritarian rule. An Ecumenical Church of Universal Brotherhood, a term that would make any Free Mason chirp with joy. That is clearly where Pope Francis is headed. Tuesday’s election in the U.S. will take us a step closer to or a step further away from that terrifying reality.
Ecumenism is another word for Globalism. What many fail to understand is that the steel rod that represents the Holy Catholic Church doesn’t bend. At least, it’s not supposed to. But Pope Francis is an accommodating kinda guy in the spirit of Pachamama.
Back to the two popes and how to understand this peculiarity. Pope Benedict XVI resigned only his day-to-day ministerial duties as Pope and Bishop of Rome. He retained the supernatural character and the Universal Primacy of the Petrine Office, often referred to as the munus. Pope Francis is Bishop of Rome, legitimately elected by the Cardinals, each of whom is titular head of a particular Church in the Diocese of Rome. It’s murky but one could consider Francis as being equivalent to an Orthodox Patriarch.
Accordingly, the Seat of St Peter is not vacant (sede vacante), rather it is simultaneously occupied by two popes (sedes duo or something similar).
After all, Pope Benedict still wears white and wears the papal ring, he lives in the Vatican, offers Apostolic blessings, and titled himself Pope Emeritus, noted Life Site News in an excellent piece about the Church’s present dilemma.
