“Dear friends, may no adversity paralyze you. Be afraid neither of the world, nor of the future, nor of your weakness. The Lord has allowed you to live in this moment of history so that, by your faith, his name will continue to resound throughout the world.” (Pope Benedict XVI)
Set forth below are three important prophecies by three modern saints who were all born in Poland. The first prophecy is by Saint Pope John Paul II, and was made during a visit to the United States in 1976 when he was still a Cardinal. The second prophecy is by Saint Maximilian Kolbe, the Franciscan priest who died in a starvation bunker in Auschwitz during World War II, having volunteered to take the place of a married man. The third prophecy is from Saint Faustina Kowalska, the nun whose “Diary” has promoted greater devotion to God’s Divine Mercy. She died in 1938 and was canonized in 2000.
FIRST PROPHECY (By Saint John Paul II)
“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel.
SECOND PROPHECY (by Saint Maximilian Kolbe)
Comment: We should be increasingly aware that there are strong forces in our society under the domain of Satan. One sign of this is the massive apostasy we are witnessing. In Luke’s Gospel (Chapter 19) we see that Jesus wept over Jerusalem and prophesied its coming destruction, which occurred in A.D. 70. Jerusalem was not as blessed as nations who have received the Gospel. The greatest immediate threat in all of this is our children and young adults, who are losing their precious faith in massive numbers. Chastisement comes quickly from the dissolution of morality consequent to the loss of faith: suddenly you find yourself living in a society sinking from the weight of its own immorality (this situation is described by Saint Paul at Romans 1: 24-32 ). The wisdom of the three saints mentioned in this note is unanimous that consecration to Mary is of immense value in remaining faithful to our baptismal consecration to Jesus. Pope Francis had his papacy consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima by Cardinal Jose Polycarp of Lisbon, Portugal; the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima have a profound prophetic dimension for our times and the trials the Church will have to endure. Perhaps this is a good time to review the great historical and supernatural facts of Fatima. — Tom Mulcahy, M.A.
[Footnote from the mail: “I have been a fan since 1997 or so (20 years?) when you first started the website (or at least when I first got the internet). Thank you for your outstanding work over the years going back to The Final Hour. As you know, we are here. I just wanted to say that your article entitled ‘Streets of Gold‘ was outstanding. I believe that your words are profoundly prophetic and I hope that you will publish that all over the internet. It needs to be said. We are on a precipice and all is smoke and mirrors. Please continue to warn all of those who will listen. Your work is a blessing. We all must now persevere to the end. Night is falling and the road is fading into a narrow path. Darkness ensues and the forest is closing in. The wolves are howling with hunger. It’s time to move swiftly together so none get lost and hurry home before the storm comes.
