PUNISHMENT OR PEACE?
and the Coming Chastisement
It is generally understood by Marian-minded Catholics and even by Christians in
general, that there is a cause and effect that that works throughout all of
creation. There is a cause and effect principle that works in nature and
even more so in the supernatural. This is especially true of End Time
events and conditions. Moral degeneracy and cultural corruption lead to
God’s punishment and eventual cataclysms of God’s Divine Chastisement.
The following prophetic revelations given over the years reinforces this concept
that the coming cataclysms of the Divine Chastisement are a direct result of the
causative factor: moral degeneracy and cultural corruption. The sins
of mankind are the causative factors that bring on the wrath of God’s Justice.
“Pray, pray, my Grandson’s arm is hard to hold back. The Chastisement
will hit thy Nation, thy Country. First, for the dreadful destruction of
the unborn; second, for the blackest of sins they have wallowed into; third, for
the lack of Christian duty by the priests, the religious and my children, the
Given by St. Anne at Necedah – July 26, 1973.
“The seasons will be altered, the Earth will produce nothing but bad fruit, the
Stars will lose their regular motion, the
moon will only reflect a faint reddish glow. Water and fire will give the
Earth’s globe convulsions and terrible earthquakes which will swallow up
mountains, cities, etc…”
La Salette – September 19, 1846.
At Fatima, Sister Lucy stated in response to a question about whether the Secret
of Fatima is in Holy Scripture: “It’s in the Gospels and in the
Apocalypse, read them.” She specifically mentioned Apocalypse chapters
8 through 13.
Akita, Father Gobbi and the revelations on the Three Days of Darkness given
through St. Padre Pio also tell of the coming rain of fire and cataclysms to
come. The above revelations are but represenatative samples of the many
prophecies foretelling of cataclysms of the Divine Chastisement being sent by
God to punish mankind because of his corrupted ways. All these profound
prophecies are fully explained in THE APOCALYPSE UNFOLDS
: Vol. 4 – The Apocalypse In Perspective: Ch. 7. “The Storm of the
Society has now been transformed from a
once Christian society into a pagan one through one cultural shock after another
that began in the mid 1960’s into the 1970’s. During this second cultural
revolution (the “Roaring Twenties” being the first cultural revolution),
cultural and religious standards of civility and morality were discarded by an
increasingly decadent and corrupted society. What type of dress and living
habits we have today is an outward sign of a manifest disintegration of
Christian decency which has transformed a once Christian culture to a
gutter-level of pagan promiscuity.
What we have today is a result of a strategy developed by Dr. Kurt Lewin, a
scientist working out of the Tavistock Institute For Human Relations (England)
for the express purpose of destroying Christian civilization. The
technique to accomplish this was called “long-range penetration strain”
(words of Dr. Kurt Lewin) to subject a very large group of people to various
systematic “strains” on its culture, its economics, its morals, its political
beliefs, and its religious beliefs until under such attack and cultural strain,
fragmentation occurs followed by social breakdown. This strategy was
premeditated and pre-planned by the New World Order scientists working through
various organizations and movements to destroy Christian culture.
At the time of the cultural revolution (mid 1960’s to mid 1970’s) which fostered
the destruction of decency in dress, manners, and customs, you also had the
religious and liturgical revolution destroying the Catholic traditions of the
centuries resulting in a complete reorientation of Catholic religious life
and practice . This came about through a parallel plan via the Alta
Vendita to corrupt the Roman Catholic Church from within. Meantime
through the World Council of Churches (a New World Order organization) other
denominations were undermined as well. So here we have two parallel
diabolical plans timed at the same time, the cultural revolution and the
liturgical revolution, to work in tandem to destroy Christian civilization from
within. There was still another.
The political process of the Country as well as other countries was also being
undermined at the same time, especially in the educational institutions.
While all the foregoing was happening, the revolution in education was
introducing sensitivity training, sex education, core-curriculum teaching
methods and inculcated New World Order type philosophies while at the same time
erasing true historical, scientific and cultural principles and facts from the
textbooks so that the end result was an indoctrination not an education.
So we had three cultural revolutions in one: one in education, another in
religion, and yet another in culture – all timed to coincide together.
The cultural revolution promoted women to wear immodest and indecent clothing
(mini-skirts, shorts, bikinis, streetwear that looked like underwear, etc.) and
this eventually evolved into women wearing men’s apparel to masculinize women
and creating a unisex look. In the meantime men were encouraged by this
cultural revolution to wear apparel formally only worn by women: flowered
shirts, ear-rings and other affeminette apparel. In addition, to complete
the unisex look, men wore long hair while women were encouraged (even before the
revolution was fully underway) to wear bobbed or otherwise short hairstyles.
We should note here, that the above corruptions in style of dress has been
condemned by the Holy Scriptures. Deuteronomy 22:5 states: “A
woman shall not be clothed with man’s apparel, neither shall a man use women’s
apparel; for he that doeth these things is abominable before God.”
Furthermore, this unisex or blurring of identity between men’s and women’s style
in apparel encourages and promotes homosexuality, and hence sodomy. This
corrupted style of dress has severely affected the women. The women are
the heart of the home and of the family and how they dress seriously affects
their children’s outlook, often confusing them on the role of men and women in
society. Dressing with dignity and nobility was out. The dress-down,
unisex or “grungy” look was in, regardless of the occasion.
We should not overlook certain other developments during this same time frame
while the cultural revolution was underway. Public prayer and God was
taken out of the so-called “public” (actually government) school system.
To top it all off, right in the worst of the cultural revolution, abortion was
made legal. Then we turn around and ask God to bless America! How
can He? – when we have thrown Him out of our schools and public institutions,
abandoned the True Faith in droves and flaunted Him with immorality, sodomy,
unisex dress, promiscuity, disregard for the value of human life (abortion,
euthanasia, etc.), and the abandonment of Christian civility, morals and
The cultural revolution, aided by the liturgical or religious revolution and the
revolution in education, abolished the natural and good order ordained by God
and long ago established by the True Catholic Christian Church over the
centuries. The war against Christian culture was manifest many decades
ago. It started long before the second cultural revolution of the sixties
when the clothing and hairstyle of the “Beatles” as well as their so-called
“music” was considered extremely revolutionary. (Though considered
extremely revolutionary then, it is considered “normal” and accepted today).
Going back to the early 20th century, before the first cultural
revolution (the “Roaring 20’s” when “flappers” and the Charleston, shorter
dresses were in vogue), a decent dress and moral code were still firmly in
place/ A film from the period (1905) shows the manner of dress and
civility of the time before the cultural revolutions changed society forever.
This 1905 film, “Boarding School Girls at Coney Island” shows the
very feminine and modest dress worn, the customs and manners in place and even
the very modest swimwear of both the women and the men during that time.
Incidentally, the typical swimwear of both the women (dresses below the knee) –
and the men (covering both the thighs and the upper torso), is far more modest
in some respects than many of the so-called street-wear worn today.
It has been said that “clothes make the man” (and the woman). How a person
is dressed not only reveals and reflects the implicit moral code or lack of it,
but the person’s way of thinking, their discipline (or lack of it), and their
attitude and desires. Everything in the temporal order – dress, attitude,
manners, recreation, decoration, etc. – favors either Catholic Christian
civilization or the New World Order’s cultural revolution.
The unfortunate thing is that people today, especially the youth, want to be
“with the times” and to “fit in.” Public opinion favors and gives implicit
approval to certain “styles” and ways of being – which of course, unbeknownst to
most, are being promoted by the Tavistock cultural revolution agents.
While it is natural for a person to delight in feeling at one with the
consensus, to follow the trends of the moment to “fit in” – one really has to
take note and realize the consequences and his (or her) influence on their
children, the future of society. It appears that this revolutionary force
of the times sweeps along the most of us (especially the youth) to wear
immodest, unisex, and vulgar clothing.
Both cultural revolutions (the “Roaring Twenties” and the “Revolting Sixties”)
were premeditated plans to attack the Catholic Christian culture. The
symbol of the “Revolting Sixties” was the “Broken Cross,” erroneously called the
“Peace Sign” today. (The true Peace Sign is the Dove of the Holy Ghost).
This Broken Cross was an important sign of the cultural revolution, being used
in riots and revolts against symbols of authority and the “Establishment.”
It was painted on signs, mini-busses and on buildings, etc. in violent protest
against the established order: Christian civilization.
It is important to understand what this symbol of the revolution meant.
The conspirators took the Latin Cross and turned it upside-down to symbolize the
overturning of Christian values and customs, making what was once considered
indecent and abnormal appear “normal” and “accepted.” Thus, what was once
considered normal and decent, was to be considered abnormal and passé. The
upside-down Cross then had its cross-arms broken to symbolize the fragmentation
and breaking (or breakdown) of Christian society according to the Tavistock
plan. Lastly, the Broken Cross was put within a circle symbolizing the
final goal of the cultural revolution, the total fragmentation and thus the
complete destruction of the Christian order of society.
Look at yesteryear’s Christian order of society in speech, manners, customs,
decorum and dress and then look at today’s corrupted culture. What has
become of manners and morals, civility and dress? It has been destroyed
through the “Broken Cross” cultural revolution. This sign of the Broken
Cross was born during the very violent protests of the hippie psychedelic drug
cultural revolution. This sign is NOT a “peace” sign but a sign of
VIOLENCE against the established order of Christian culture.
No wonder the Necedah revelations warned many years ago to pray for the youth:
“…Pray for the children, for a cleaner life.” (June 4, 1950). The
“styles” of today were the very styles that Jacinta of Fatima warned about:
“Styles will come that will offend Our Lord very much.”
The difficult thing today is to have the courage to take a stand and act outside
the public consensus and be contrary to it. But if we follow Our Lord
Jesus Christ that is exactly what we need to do. A true Christian is one
who is in the world but not of the world. It’s much like the man in
a rowboat on the “river of life.” He either mans the oars and fights
against the current (ways of the world) and progresses towards his goal: the
source of the “river of life,” Heaven, his true home; or, he tips up his oars
and drifts with the current and ends up being swallowed up at the “river of
life’s” end, the mouth of the river, Hell. It is an important life
decision most fail to grasp.
Our choice is important, not only for our own soul, but for the influence (good
or bad) it has on those around us, especially the youth and the children.
We can either mitigate the coming cataclysms of the Divine Chastisement or we
can hasten and worsen its affects upon us and our children. We have been
warned by God and by the Mother of God through Father Gobbi, Our Lady of
Seredne, Ukraine and others that our times are much worse than the days of Noah
before the Great Deluge. Consequently, the Divine Chastisement of coming
cataclysms will be like nothing ever experienced by mankind ever in history.
A great galactic cosmic wave is on its way, no doubt, to trigger the Great
Warning event prophesied by Marie-Julie Jahenny, Garabandal, Father Gobbi and
others . Marie-Julie Jahenny warned, “It signals the commencement of
the chastisement of Earth.” (June 15, 1882). All information coming
from both scientific and prophetic sources indicates this final Great Warning
event is very near – very possibly within the next 5 years.
It is time to get our spiritual houses in order
and choose either the way of Catholic Christian civilization or the way of the
cultural revolution. God’s Grace period is fastrunning out. Prepare while
you still have time left!
AN ATTACK ON CULTURE IS AN ATTACK ON THE FAMILY
"It is virtue that generates true courtesy.”
- Fenelon, Catholic Manual of Civility.
“Civility and urbanity in customs strongly predispose minds to attain wisdom
and follow the light of truth.”
Pope Leo XIII.
“In the social structure of human affairs, the family is the first unit.”
- Father Cletus Dirksen, Catholic Social Principles
The Evil Forces working through Freemasonry have promoted so-called “equality,
fraternity, and liberty” in society to obtain their “Utopia” and the “rights of
man.” All the promoted and premeditated changes in culture over the years
have been aimed at destroying the basic unit of society – the traditional
Trinitarian family as designed and ordered by God Himself. All movements
and attacks have been fostered and promoted by the Judeo/Masonic forces to tear
this God-ordained family apart and replace it with the new Utopian image of the
“democratic ideal” family.
This is why women’s “rights” and feminism was promoted along with changes in
fashion in dress to blur the distinction between man and woman, to further the
destruction of their respective roles in the family. The Catholic ideal of
family in a Christian culture, a Christian civilization had to be subverted and
replaced. Thus civility had to be abandoned and replaced in society with “
grungyness,” sloppiness in dress and manners, and total disregard for propriety
and decorum. Civility is a virtue that allows us to govern and master our
words, gestures and actions and even our manner of dress. It helps us
fight against bad tendencies and to form good character.
With the obliteration of civility, propriety, decorum, proper manners and dress
respective of the roles of man and woman in the traditional God-ordained family
had to be done away with. This is what transpired over the last century,
especially in the last 50 years or so. Two cultural revolutions, the
“Roaring Twenties” and the “Revolting Sixties” did much to accomplish this along
with “Industrial Revolution” that preceded them in the 1800’s. What is
needed now is a full realization as to what has happened to our culture and the
grace and courage needed to mount a counter-revolution to restore God’s plan for
the family, the basic unit of society and Christian civilization.
THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY:
God’s Plan Under Attack
[ This article has been taken as excerpts from the book:
Marian Apparitions and Apocalyptic Research; from the chapter, “”The
Attack on the Christian Family.” This book was published in 1994.
The attack and breakdown of the Christian family has never been so great as in
the later half of the 20th century (and now the 21st
century). The American society at one time was strong in its moral values,
in its cultural pursuits, and in its national patriotic fervor. Obedience,
etiquette, respect for authority, etc., were common practice. In some
ways, our culture was like that of Hunza today.
In the remote Himalayan Mountains is a small country where people live long
because of their health secrets and their way of life. Because of their
strict and wholesome family life, no juvenile delinquency exists. Here, in
this land, the man is definitely the head of the home and is greatly respected
by his wife. The women of Hunza take care of their children, discipline
them and teach them responsibility. The children are obedient and
respectful towards their parents.
In Hunza, the man has great respect for his wife, more so after she is pregnant.
Therefore there is no relationship between husband and wife during pregnancy.
After birth children are breastfed until 2 or 3 years old. During this
time, there is no relationship between husband and wife. Because of this
custom, divorce and sex related crimes are practically unheard of.
Everything in Hunza, their way of life, their family-oriented agricultural
economy, is geared towards encouraging a proper family life. Families have
close ties and help the young families get a start.
Compared to the Hunza way of life, the American way of life is in a state of
decadence. However, it was not always this way. We shall see that
the destruction of the American family especially the Christian family was
deliberately planned. By destroying the moral fiber of this country,
humanity sank to its lowest passions and degradations and thus became more
easily controlled and manipulated.
The attack on the family has been carefully planned and orchestrated. The
atrocities of abortion, euthanasia, and infanticide as well as the homosexual
movement, drugs, lowered moral standards, and pornography are all outgrowths of
the lack of respect for life, for womanhood, for manhood, and the Christian
The foregoing is ripe ground for moral depravity, divorce, and delinquency with
the youth the principle target and the greatest victim. The all-out war
against the youth covers a wide range of subjects – music (or more correctly,
its distorted form) – rock ‘n roll, rap, satanic lyrics, etc., drugs,
delinquency, sexual abuse, teenage pregnancies, abortion and suicide.
The youth are the main target of the enemy, for the enemy knows if they are to
remake civilization into the Antichrist’s New World Order, then they must
capture the minds, hearts, and souls of the youth, the citizens of tomorrow’s
world. Two specific areas targeted to remake the youth of tomorrow is the
entertainment industry (mainly music) and the fashion industry.
All this has brought us to an all-time low as far as respect for life and human
decency are concerned. These factors may be the final blow to (what is
left of) Christian civilization unless, we, acting as true Christians, bring
back or preserve at least a remnant of true Christian culture. This effort
has to start with the family, the traditional Christian values of which form the
basic unit of society.
The Christian family is a miniature kingdom designed by Heaven Itself. As
Christ the King is the head, so the father is the head of the family imitating
Christ creating, loving, and carrying forth his duties as parent and teacher.
The father not only has to provide for the financial and physical welfare of the
family but for its spiritual welfare as well. In fact, the father may be
called “priest” in his duties of blessing and leading his family in prayer.
There is a relationship between the ordained priest we call “father” and the
father who may be called “priest” in his spiritual duties to his family.
Saint John Chrysotom called the Christian home an ecclesia domestica, a “family
church.” There are many times in history where the faith of the true
Church is only kept alive in the Christian home.
Our Heavely Mother, Mary, is Queen and the model for the woman who is the mother
and heart of the family. The woman who commands respect reigns as a queen
over those around her. It is a reign of true love to teach her children
the manners, morals, and duties of Christian life. She is a companion to
her husband and a mother to her children. She dresses modestly following
the Marian ideal, the Mother of God and promotes decency.
Together the parents through the proper teaching and upbringing of their
children give rise to a Christian civilization. If this is so, then the
society that surrounds them will be honorable, noble, orderly, respecting the
mysteries of life and gaining true peace and happiness.
ARE WE MODEST OR GRUNGY?
[ This article was first published in the
Shrine Beacon – May/June, 1996. ]
Have you ever heard one say: “Clothes makes the man”?
In other words, clothes, the way we dress, coupled with the way we act,
portrays to others what we are. Do you dress for the occasion? Are
you modest in dress or are you just plain “grungy.”?
Grunginess or “dressing down” seems to be the big thing nowadays. There is
no longer respect for the occasion or the place (especially Church), or for
others, or even for themselves. It’s a “anything goes” attitude.
When are people going to wake up to the fact that this dress-down “grunginess”
is simply being promoted to destroy the dignity and respect of true manhood,
womanhood and thus Christian society itself? There are signs that someone
besides this author is getting fed up with it.
In a local paper we found evidence that some people have finally began using a
little common sense in this regard. Consider the following:
“Recently Newsweek had a cover story “A Nation of Slobs?”which
cited the increasing trend is evident everywhere, almost to the point to being
commonplace, especially during the warmer months and in warmer climes.
“The trend got the goat of Bob Shaw, manager emeritus of the Minnesota Newspaper
Association. He attended a college graduation recently and noted that
people dressed as they would have for a garage sale or to work in their compost
pile. ‘No men wore ties,’ Shaw recalls. ‘One man sitting near me
wore an armless T-shirt… Some didn’t take off their hats.’
“Shaw continued: ‘I was taught that one dresses up to show respect for
an event; that what one wears tells something about how one feels about an
“Seth Schmidt, editor of the Tracy Headlight Herald, echoes the thought
that the dress-down trend is evident in Tracy.
“Schmidt noted, ‘One sees T-shirts and blue jeans even at the most formal
occasions nowadays, including weddings, graduations and church services.
Only a few bastions of formal attire remain. But even at funerals I’ve
spotted cutoffs and logo-embossed sweat shirts.’
“It seems like eons ago that blue jeans were banned in public schools. Now
denim is part of the uniform of the day. Clothing stores feature much more
casual apparel than dress-up.
“Schmidt also asks, ‘Why is it suddenly permissible to appear in public with
one’s underwear showing?’ This is after seeing a girl at a car wash
wearing a white bra and a bottom that ‘looked’ underwear.
“Other dress-down trends Schmidt can’t quite get used to: Clothing at
public gatherings with rips and holes; men and boys who don’t remove their hats
indoors, especially while eating; government leaders who wear flannel shirts in
public appearances; sweat shirts and T-shirts in church.
“Both Shaw and Schmidt agree that how we dress reflects our attitude towards
church, graduation, or any important event. Sloppy dress tends to reflect
a sloppy attitude and lack of respect.
“As Shaw notes, ‘We all got dressed up to show respect.’
“Of course, such thinking is terribly old-fashioned and out-of-date. These
are, after all, the mid-90’s and grunginess is considered the norm for many.”
[ From “Jottings” by John Fredrick Moore. ]
We as a nation and as a society are in pitiful shape if “grunginess” is
considered normal for many and has become more of a common practice than modest
dress. (Remember, how you dress influences how you act and influences
others as well).
As for being modest in dress: Just what does it mean? Modesty in
dress means more than just being covered properly. The word, modestt
stems from the Latin, “modestus” which in turn comes from
“modus.” It means “a limit.” It means to be restrained by a
sense of propriety, not forward or bold, not excessive, extreme, or extravagant,
in a word, moderate.
In defining “modest,” you note we used the word, propriety. Propriety
simply means conformity to acknowledged or correct standards of behavior or
dress. It means conformity to established social customs. In a
Christian society this means Christian customs.
We as a Christian society are almost non-existent for there is little evidence
of it. “Grunginess” in dress depicts a pagan society not a Christian one.
“Grunginess” has taken over and has become the “outward sign” of what we are as
a society. What a pity! Holy Mother has pleaded for modesty in dress
and what have we become?
We all know GOD WILL BLESS MODESTY IN DRESS! But if you are a TRUE
Christian and respect Christian manhood and Christian womanhood, then don’t you
think we should dress the part?
WHY MEN AND WOMEN SHOULD DRESS PROPERLY
To keep the body in its proper place, which is second to the soul.
To protect the body from the cupidity of others.
To meet the standards of beauty and elegance.
Today the grungy dress-down society has
gotten much worse. It is a sad state of affairs when a film from 1905
shows the very modest beachwear of both men and women to be much more modest and
decent than the common everyday street-wear is of 2015. Back then and even
up to the cultural revolution of the 1960’s, women dressed like women and men
like men. Not so today. (For example, when this author was in high
school 1962-1966) only boys wore pants or trousers – the girls only wore dresses
or skirts. It didn’t need to be enforced. This simply was normal
standard of dress for that time and that was in a public school. Take a
look at the manner of dress of boys and girls today in public school, Catholic
school and general society at large).
How men and women dress respective of their
proper roles in a Christian society is not a light matter. There is a God
ordained standard of dress for both men and women handed down through the
centuries by the Catholic Church. Guidance for proper dress for both men
and women can be found in the encyclicals of the popes. Popes Pius XII and
Pius XI as well as Cardinal Giuseppe Siri have spoken of this. The Blessed
Virgin Mary has also warned of this through Her apparitions, most notably
Fatima. If you doubt the gravity of this issue consider God’s Holy Word in
“A woman shall not be clothed with man’s apparel,
neither shall a man use women’s apparel; for he that doeth these things is
abominable before God.”
[ Deuteronomy 22:5]
