Times of the Antichrist - III

The Dragon, John XXIII & Paul VI

Homer Sweeney
According to Fr. E. Silvester Berry, who published the 1921 edition of the Apocalypse of St. John with his commentaries, the powers of Hell seek all means possible to destroy the Popes elected in the last times.

Although I do not believe that, properly speaking, we are in the last times, we are certainly in times that pre-figure those. Therefore, many things that are happening now are somehow predicted in that mysterious book.

A Woman persecuted by the Dragon

St. John sees a Woman, the Church, persecuted by a Dragon; she flees to the desert & gives birth to a Child

The prophecies of the Apocalypse consist almost entirely of symbolic visions whose interpretations give us the message intended by the Holy Ghost. St. John the Evangelist relates that a Woman is seen in Heaven persecuted by a Dragon. The Woman is a symbol of the Church.

This indicates that the first troubles of those days will be start inside the Church that is being persecuted by the Devil. When we see that since 1917 there has been an almost total rejection of Our Lady of Fatima’s requests by the Hierarchy, we cannot help but think that those Bishops who followed Progressivism instead of Our Lady were the stars dragged down from the sky by the tail of the Dragon.

In December 1957 Sister Lucy was interviewed by Fr. Fuentes, a Mexican priest named vice-postulator of the causes of beatification of Francisco and Jacinta. Until then, Lucy had never been allowed to talk freely about Fatima, but on that occasion the Church authorities let down their guard. That interview with Sister Lucy was like a farewell address from her to all of us.

Her first statement was “Father, the Blessed Virgin is very sad because no one has paid attention to her Message either good or bad.”

Fr. Augustin Fuentes

Fr. Augustin Fuentes received a very important message from Sr. Lucy in 1957

When Lucy told us not to look to Rome or religious authorities for help, we were shocked. She warned us that each one of us has to save his own soul and those whom God has placed in our lives. She also reminded us that prayer and sacrifice are two means to save the world along with praying the Holy Rosary and having devotion to Immaculate Heart of Mary.

It was not known at the time, but after that interview the real Sister Lucy disappeared, and decades later there has been much speculation on what happened to her. Her cousins Jacinta and Francisco knew exactly when God was taking them to Heaven. We can speculate that Lucy also knew and that she died sometime before her entrance into Carmel, and for this reason she left us her last words in her interview with Fr. Fuentes.

Unfortunately, the content of the Third Secret became the main focus of people's interest in Fatima, not the instructions from Our Lady on how to save their souls. If Our Lady of Fatima’s wishes had been obeyed, there would never have been a need to release the Third Secret. We have been living the Secret for over 50 years.

On January 2, 1944, Sister Lucy, following the orders of Bishop da Silva of Leira-Fatima and with the approval of the Blessed Mother, wrote down in letter form the Third Secret and addressed it to the Bishop da Silva. The first two parts of the Message of Fatima had already been revealed, and the third part was to be read no later than 1960 or at the time of Sister’s death by Bishop da Silva if he were still alive or, if not, by the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon. It was not addressed to the Pope but he could read it if he desired.

However, in 1957 the Vatican requested the letter in addition to all of Sister Lucy’s writings. The letter was delivered to Pius XII. It was reported that Pius XII never opened the Secret. In reality, Pius XII, who had not mentioned Fatima publically since 1951, most likely could not have released the Secret even if he had wanted to.

There are so many lies told about Fatima; it is really not known if he read the Secret or not. On October 9, 1958, Pope Pius XII died.

It is a matter of History that the most disastrous periods for the Church were times when the Papal Throne was vacant or when anti-popes contended with the legitimate heads of the Church. Thus also shall it be in those days to come.

John XXIII with Russian observers at Vatican II

Paul VI receives Tito at the Vatican
One can only wonder the degree of power Satan used in the controversy-filled elections of Pope John XXIII in 1958 and Paul VI in 1963. In both elections white smoke appeared – meaning that a Pope had been elected – a first time, but no Pope appeared.

There are many theories, according to second hand stories and FBI files affirming that Card. Siri was elected in the first Conclave and took the name Gregory XVII. Supposedly he would have renounced the office because the French Cardinals argued that the Russians had promised to launch World War III if an anti-communist Pope were elected. After Siri stepped back, John XXIII was elected.

In the second conclave Siri again had the majority of votes and renounced the office; Paul VI was elected. We do not know whether these speculations are true or not. What we know is that until his death Card. Siri accepted both John XXIII and Paul VI as legitimate Popes and discouraged those who pretended he was the true pope.

John XXIII, who became Pope in 1958, was the darling of the Freemasons and rumored to have been one. He was described by one author as the Pope who single-handily rehabilitated Communism, discredited Fatima and used deceitful methods to bury the Third Secret. He was the Pope of Vatican II and has also been described as the Pope who initiated the Apostasy.

In fact, as St. John writes in the Apocalypse, there will be a whole organized movement that will set up a Church of Satan in opposition to the Church of Christ. “Saint” Paul VI, who became Pope in 1963, was the man who promulgated Vatican II, sabotaged Mariology to please the Protestants, promulgated the New Mass and changed the rites of all Seven Sacraments. The new Church of Satan has been established.

Distorted crosier  - Paul VI

Is Paul VI's distorted crosier a symbol of the Antichrist?

He did not hide his beliefs.

Paul VI made use of a sinister symbol used by Satanists in the 6th Century that had been revived at the time of Vatican II. This was the bent or broken cross on which was displayed a repulsive and distorted figure of Christ that the black magicians and sorceresses of the Middle Ages had made use of to represent the Biblical term, "Mark of the Beast," and to show their hatred for Christianity. Yet not only Paul VI, but all his successors, held up such a cross to be viewed by all Catholic even though it stands for the Antichrist.

More than one million people were present at Fatima when Paul VI visited there on May 13, 1967, at the 50th anniversary of the first apparition. The event marked the return of Sister Lucy who had not been seen for about nine years. The crowd was ecstatic.

It wasn’t until the year 2004 – thanks to a series of articles by Dr. Marian Horvat – that it was realized that the Sister Lucy who re-appeared in 1967 was a fraud. For almost 40 years the message coming out of the Vatican about Fatima, the consecration of Russia, the Third Secret and “The Message of Fatima” were in part made of lies. Millions of faithful Catholics were deceived and are still being deceived.
