Listen … We are at War.

“Secular War on the Supernatural.”

Fr. Richard Heilman, Roman Catholic Man:

Listen … We are at war. Dr. Alice von Hildebrand rightly called it a “Secular War on the Supernatural.” All the myriad life-and-death battles being fought on the socio-political and religious fronts today are mere symptoms of the root conflict – Satan and his secular army are at war with the supernatural. And, in this war, the vast majority of us are like a bunch of buck privates running around like chickens with their heads cut off … not following orders, with no supernatural body armor and no supernatural weapons … we’re sitting ducks for the enemy. Why? Because we think we can fight supernatural realities with our natural means. Or, we simply do not believe in supernatural realities.

In his letter to Timothy, St. Paul warns of these times:

“But understand this: there will be terrifying times in the last days. People will be self-centered and lovers of money, proud, haughty, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious, callous, implacable, slanderous, licentious, brutal, hating what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, as they make a pretense of religion but deny its power. Reject them” (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

but deny its power
but deny its power
but deny its power

This has been the campaign of the devil all along … root out any belief in the supernatural which then gives the devil the upper hand in this war. The strong insurgency began with the pride-filled, so-called Enlightenment of the 18th century that paved the way for the Communist Russian Revolution which was unleashed in … wait for it … 1917. What are the errors of Russia? Communism is an atheistic ideology that ultimately denies God’s natural order and natural law, which God inscribed on the hearts of men. Ultimately, it denies the supernatural.

In 1917 … in the days between Our Lady of Fatima’s June 13 apparition and July 13 apparition, Pope Benedict XV released his timely encyclical, Humani Generis Redemptionem on June 15, 1917. It would prove to be prophetic. In it he addressed an issue that he “looked upon as a matter of the greatest and most momentous concern” …

“If on the other hand, we examine the state of public and private morals, the constitutions and laws of nations, we shall find that there is a general disregard and forgetfulness of the supernatural, a gradual falling away from the strict standard of Christian virtue, and that men are slipping back more and more into the shameful practices of paganism.”

This is the leftist agenda, in nutshell … whether they are consciously aware of it or not.

So, you can see, Our Lady appears as this war against the supernatural is erupting. Out of love for her children, she is pulling out all of the stops, including reminding us of the consequence of lives lived away from God – she showed them Hell.

    I would love to send this to my friends on email. I would also like an easy way to print so I can share these things with friends and family. Can you have a print friendly way to do this. God bless. Janina

    Check out “Isaiah 65” and see if it’s relevant for today’s happenings!!!

  • The 3 Days of Darkness is almost upon us. I can somehow sense that it is nearer than some of us think. We should all pray the Holy Rosary from the heart for the conversion of all sinners because God is already so much offended and says “Enough we must restructure”. Every Christian believer should prepare for this dreadful event that is about to happen to the whole world. Please pray, pray, pray dear sisters and brothers, PRAY!!!

    Within the Catholic Church ‘battle lines’ are forming amongst Spiritual Leaders, those that promote liberality versus those that promote traditional orthodoxy. The smoke of Satan is creating confusion ! Which side of the spiritual army do we fight with ? Please enlist with traditional orthodoxy !

    The third message of Our Lady of Akita on October 13, 1973:

    “My dear daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you. You will inform your superior.”

    After a short silence:

    “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.

    “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests); churches and altars will be sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.

    “The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.

    “With courage, speak to your superior. He will know how to encourage each one of you to pray and to accomplish works of reparation.

    “It is Bishop Ito, who directs your community.”

    And She smiled and then said:

    “You have still something to ask? Today is the last time that I will speak to you in living voice. From now on you will obey the one sent to you and your superior.

    “Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamites which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.”

    Approved by Bishop Ito

    We are given reason to believe that, towards the end of time and perhaps sooner than we expect, God will raise up people filled with the Holy Spirit and imbued with the spirit of Mary. Through them Mary, Queen most powerful, will work great wonders in the world, destroying sin and setting up the kingdom of Jesus her Son upon the RUINS of the corrupt kingdom which is this great earthly Babylon. (Rev. 18:20) —St. Louis de Montfort, Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, n. 58-59

  • Sue said it so well!!!. And Rev. Mother Angelica Warns us continually as well as Mary. How our Holy Mother is sad, and sad for us. Please take heed and Prepare well..we r only here To Know, Love, and Serve God..& make it to heaven!!!. The Rosary is Power. In MARY, Deanna+ J+M+J

    In my own personal life I have realized that when you expose the darkness, it loses its grip over you. Your words help bring light to this intense darkness around us. I’m comforted to know that God will win and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph, no matter how bleak things may seem. God bless you! You and your ministry are in my prayers!!

  • Wow..this Sue said it all so well.Right on. And the one’s I talk to, I am not silent on this for sure, anyway, they really do not care, do n ot believe this,and so many liberal and think I am a pessimist. Mary Warn’s, I Warn. The pain and anguish we will’ face is beyound be sure. Mary is our Refuge, our Hope, and Sweetnes. Even many of our Clergy , Top down, will not speak out for Mary’s Warnings. So sad for Her.God bless!.Mother Angelica WARNED US CONTINUALLY..Pray for us Rev. Mother.

    Yes. It has been a ‘100 Years War’ — both, in the Heavens and on the Earth — since Mary’s ‘visitation’ at Fatima; but it will all soon come to an end when Jesus returns.

    Since I was about 12 years old, I’ve sensed that there were ‘unseen’ battles being fought all around me, while I was living in a ‘human battlefield’ at home, at school and even at my Parish during the 1950’s & 60’s. Since then, SIN has only INCREASED exponentially, year after year.

    As I see it, we have now reached the time when battle lines are being drawn and the ‘armies’ — both, supernatural and natural (i.e., ‘human’) — are actively RECRUITING. Right now, this minute, I believe that we are in the crucial ‘Propaganda’ phase — where we humans are being made to CHOOSE which side — which Army — we will fight on. Once this stage is complete, we will gather on the Battlefield! The time is short — and we MUST EVANGELIZE like NEVER BEFORE! So yes, while I’m not very ‘computer-savvy’, I will TRY to ‘share’ this on my Facebook page. This is most definitely a ‘scary’ time’ nevertheless, Come, Lord Jesus!
