Paul VI, the false prophet, and Our Lady’s messenger
AFTER having learned about Paul VI’s death, on August 6, 1978, Fr. de Nantes searched “ as one does in the great hours of our existence, for some sign in Heaven or on earth that might mysteriously unveil the meaning of this event for us. ‘ I could find none, ’ he wrote. Then a little later there arrived one of the brothers who, on his way through Paris, had attended Mass at the church of St. Louis d'Antin. It was the Mass of Paul VI. ”
In a few brief words the priest had referred to the Church's grief, reassuringly stating that our Pope Paul, who had worked so much for peace in the world, had now entered into his rest. Then the celebration began. A smart young lady stepped up to the lectern to give a cursory reading from the Old Testament. Well ! Here is the prophecy read on that first morning of mourning for Paul VI, the prophet of peace :
“ A reading from the Prophet Jeremiah.
“ In that same year, at the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, the prophet Hananiah spoke to me in the house of the Lord, in the presence of the priests and all the people, saying : ‘ Thus says the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel : I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon. Within two years I will bring back to this place all the vessels of the Lord’s house, which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place and carried to Babylon. I will also bring back to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and all the exiles from Judah who went to Babylon, says the Lord, for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon ! ’
“ Then the prophet Jeremiah spoke to Hananiah the prophet in the presence of the priests and all the people who were standing in the house of the Lord : ‘ Amen ! May the Lord do so ; may the Lord make the words that you have prophesied come true, and bring back to this place from Babylon the vessels of the house of the Lord, and all the exiles ! Yet hear now this word that I speak in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people. The prophets who preceded you and me from ancient times prophesied war, famine, and pestilence against many countries and great kingdoms. As for the prophet who prophesies peace, when the word of that prophet comes to pass, then it will be known that the Lord has truly sent the prophet standing in the house of the Lord ! ’
“ Then the prophet Hananiah took the yoke-bars from the neck of Jeremiah the prophet [ as a sign heralding a new war, a new siege, another disaster and another exile, and a total servitude to Babylon ] and broke them. Hananiah spoke in the presence of all the people, saying, ‘ Thus says the Lord : Even so will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon from the neck of all the nations within two years. ’
“ Jeremiah the prophet went his way. Some time after the prophet Hananiah had broken the yoke-bars from off the neck of Jeremiah the prophet, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah : ‘ Go, tell Hananiah, Thus says the Lord : You have broken wooden bars, but I will make in their place bars of iron. For thus says the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel : I have put upon the neck of all these nations an iron yoke of servitude to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and they shall serve him, for I have given to him even the beasts of the field. ’
“ Then Jeremiah the prophet said to the prophet Hananiah, ‘ Listen, Hananiah, the Lord has not sent you, and you have made this people trust in a lie. Therefore thus says the Lord : Behold, I will remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you shall die, because you have uttered rebellion against the Lord ! ’ In that same year, in the seventh month, the prophet Hananiah died. (Jr 28)
“ That was the Oracle of the Mass of Paul VI which was read, on that first morning after his death, in all the Catholic churches of the world where the new liturgy was celebrated, a liturgy which he – the prophet of Peace for all nations, races and religions – had ordered. There is the sign. And there in itself is the apologue of our fourteen long years of debate. I believe in the Word of God proclaimed in the liturgical assembly, and I believe that the choice of this oracle for that morning was right and good, since Paul VI himself had prescribed it. Being High Priest that year, he had without knowing it prophesied his own death and the chastisement of all his people. ” (Paul VI’s Funeral Oration, CCR no.101, August 1978)
WAR AND PEACE.
The funeral oration that Georges de Nantes, the late Pope’s adversary, composed is a masterpiece of eloquent prayer to God for the eternal rest of his soul, combined with adoration of the divine Majesty, of the implacable Justice, which is irreproachable in its judgements, a prayer that ultimately turns into confidence in divine Mercy.
To beatify Paul VI, however, is truly tantamount to losing the absolute sense of good and evil ! It is pernicious and capable of bringing to its peak the “ diabolical disorientation ” to which the Church and the world have fallen prey since the death of this Pope. For the results of his pontificate, worsened by his successors John Paul II and Benedict XVI, speak for themselves : a divided, humiliated, diminished and annihilated Catholic Church, and a world assailed by a prodigious upsurge of war of everyone against all others. The slogan, “ No more war ever again ! ” did not stop or even keep anything in check, quite the contrary !
The reason is simple : this cry rings out like a challenge to Our Lady of Fatima, like blasphemy replying to the eschatological discourse of July 13, 1917 :
“ You have seen Hell 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 am going to say to you is done, many souls will be saved [from Hell] and there will be peace.
“ The war is going to end. Yet if they do not cease to offend God another, a worse one, will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illuminated with an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that God is going to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, famine, and persecutions against the Church and 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 of the first Saturdays of the month. If My requests are heard, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and many nations will be annihilated. ”
This means that “ peace is possible, ” yes indeed, but not because “ basically, man is good ” (Paul VI, January 1, 1968.) It is possible because “ in the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, and she will be converted and a certain period of peace will be given to the world. ”
It is not the false prophet Paul VI who must be beatified, but Our Lady’s messenger, Sr. Mary Lucy of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart !
