“There will be an uncanonically elected pope who will cause a great schism, there will be diverse thoughts preached which will cause many, even those in the different orders to doubt, yea, even agree with those heretics which will cause my [Franciscan] Orders to divide, then there will be such universal dissensions and persecutions that if those days were not shortened, even the Elect [the Faithful] would be lost.” (Rev. R. Gerald Culleton, “The Reign of Antichrist”, Prophecy of Saint Francis of Assisi [b. in the Papal States c. 1181 or 1182 - d. in the Papal States on Saturday, October 3, 1226], p. 130.)
A Time Predicted by the Enemies of the Catholic Church:
“In a hundred years time . . . bishops and priests will think they are marching behind the banner of the keys of Peter when in fact they will be following our flag . . . The reforms will have to be brought about in the name of obedience.” [Alta Vendita/Masonic document]. (Father/Doctor Rama Ponnambalam Coomaraswamy [b. 1929 - d. on Wednesday, July 19, 2006], “The Destruction of the Christian Tradition”, page 84.)
In the book, “Ecumenism”, written by a Freemason in 1908, it says:
“The goal is no longer the destruction of the Church but rather to make use of it by infiltrating it.” (Bishop Graber, “Saint Athanasius”, pp. 64-65; emphasis added.)
“Now then, in order to ensure a pope in the required proportions, we must first of all prepare a generation worthy of the kingdom of which we dream . . . Let the clergy move forward under your banner (the Masonic banner) always believing they are advancing under the banner of the apostolic Keys. Cast your net like Simon Bar Jonas; spread it to the bottom of sacristies, seminaries, and convents . . . You will have finished a revolution dressed in the Pope’s triple crown and cape, carrying the cross and the flag, a revolution that will need only a small stimulus to set fire to the four corners of the earth.” (NUBIUS, Secret Instructions on the Conquest of the Church, by Emmanuel Barbier, “Les infiltrations masoniques dans l'Eglise”, Paris/Brussels: publisher Desclee de Brouwer, 1901, page 5.)
Pope JP-2 & Rome Rabbi
Freemason Eliph Levi said in 1862:
“A day will come when the pope, inspired by the Holy Spirit will declare that all the excommunications are lifted and all the anathemas are retracted, when all the Christians will be united within the Church, when the Jews and Moslems will be blessed and called back to her . . . she will permit all sects to approach her by degrees and will embrace all mankind in the communion of her love and prayers. Then, Protestants will no longer exist. Against what will they be able to protest? The sovereign pontiff will then be truly king of the religious world, and he will do whatever he wishes with all the nations of the earth.” (Father/Doctor Rama Ponnambalam Coomaraswamy [b. 1929 - d. on Wednesday, July 19, 2006], “The Destruction of the Christian Tradition”, page 133; emphasis added.)

Cardinal Saint Cajetan said:
must resist the Pope who openly destroys the Church.”

Obedience to the Pope?
Pope Innocent III said:
“It is necessary to obey a Pope in all things as long as he does not go against the universal customs of the Church, but should he go against the universal customs of the Church, he need not be followed.” (Innocent III, “De Consuetudine”, quoted by Cardinal Torquemada.)
Padre Pio da Pietrelcina, O.F.M., Capuchin
[b. Francesco Forgione at Pietrelcina,
the region of Campania in Southern Italy,
on Wednesday, May 25, 1887 -
d. at San Giovanni Rotondo, in the province of Foggia,
in the Puglia region of Southern Italy,
on Monday, September 23, 1968]
With regard to Padre Pio himself, he was certainly faithful to the traditions of the Church and to the traditional liturgy. Father Pellegrino [lifelong friend of Padre Pio] testified how Padre Pio counseled all the Council Fathers who came to see him, to put an end to Synod Vatican 2, and how he suffered with even the slightest liturgical reform. Padre Pio only used the Traditional Missal. (Father Ricossa, “Sacerdotium”, Issue #15, p. 60.)
Padre Pio celebrated a “Missa Normativa,” or interim Mass, only one time, and never did so again, begging to be dispensed. He never said Mass in Italian or facing the people. Pope Paul VI’s Novus Ordo Missae of 1969 was introduced more than a year after Padre Pio had died on Monday, September 23, 1968.
“Even before the end of the Council [a.k.a. Synod Vatican 2], in February 1965, someone announced to him that soon he would have to celebrate the Mass according to a new rite, ‘ad experimentum’, in the vernacular, which had been devised by a conciliar liturgical commission ‘in order to respond to the aspirations of modern man’ [Heresy of Modernism]. Immediately, even before seeing the text, he wrote to Paul VI [self-admitted Communist pope] to ask him to be dispensed from the liturgical experiment, and to be able to continue to celebrate the Mass of Saint Pius V [pre-1944 “Missale Romanum”]. When Cardinal Bacci came to see him in order to bring the authorization, Padre Pio let a complaint escape in the presence of the Pope’s messenger: ‘For pity sake, end the Council quickly’.” (Rev. Fr. Jean, O.F.M., Capuchin, article: “Padre Pio,” in the “Angelus” magazine, May 1999, page 31).
The .anti-Catholic. Satanic. Synod. Vatican 2. pseudo-church. of .automatically. excommunicated. Apostates. and. Modernist. Heretics, and .NEW. Theology. Heretics.. made a video of Padre Pio da Pietrelcina, O.F.M., Capuchin, which some of its parishes loan out in an attempt to try to make it look like the last Mass Offered by Padre Pio, after which he immediately died, was the “Novus Ordo Missae”, the anti-Catholic, odious abomination, NEW mass, facing the people.
According to one Roman Catholic Traditional Priest, Padre Pio was physically not able to walk up the steps to the Altar, so they put an Altar (possibly some kind of a table) on the floor in front of the Altar for Padre Pio to Offer Mass.
So, they made a video of Padre Pio’s Mass with a camera which was positioned in such a way as to give the illusion that Padre Pio was facing the people, when in fact there were people on all sides of Padre Pio. The video fails to show this fact. Instead, it is because of this failure, that the video makes it look like he used the “Novus Ordo Missae” for his last Mass, but in fact this is not true. Not only that, but Padre Pio died on Monday, September 23, 1968, and the “Novus Ordo Missae” did not go into effect until Sunday, November 30, 1969!
Important Letter of Padre Pio
Regarding the Three Days of Darkness
What follows is a translation of a copy of a personal letter written by Padre Pio which he addressed to the Commission of Heroldsbach which had been appointed by the Vatican.
In this letter, Padre Pio testifies to the truth and reality of the following Revelations he received from Our Lord, Jesus Christ:
“My Son, My Son, I have been longing for this hour in which I again shall reveal to you the great love of My heart..... Pray and make reparation to Me. Admonish others to do the same because the time is near at hand in which I shall visit My unfaithful people because they have not heeded the time of My Grace. Persevere in prayer, so that your adversary shall have no dominion over you. Tell My people to be prepared at all times, for My judgment shall come upon them suddenly and when least expected - and not one shall escape My hands. I shall find them all! I shall protect the Just. Watch the sun and moon and the stars of the heavens. When they appear to be unduly disturbed and restless, know that the day is not far away. Stay united in prayer and watching until the Angel of Destruction has passed your doors. Pray that these days will be shortened.” (Prophecy of Jesus Christ to Padre Pio on New Year's Eve, 1949; emphasis added.)
“Pray! Make reparation! Be fervent and practice mortifications. Great things are at stake! Pray! Men are running toward the abyss of Hell in great rejoicing and merry-making, as though they were going to a masquerade ball or the wedding feast of the devil himself! Assist Me in the Salvation of Souls. The measure of sin is filled! The day of revenge, with its terrifying happenings is near - nearer then you can imagine! And the world is seeping in false security! The Divine Judgment shall strike them like a thunderbolt! These Godless and wicked people shall be destroyed without mercy, as were the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorra of old. Yes, I tell you their wickedness is not as great as that of the human race today!” (January 23, 1950; emphasis added.)
“Keep your windows well-covered. Do not look out. Light a Blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the Rosary. Read Spiritual books. Make Acts of Spiritual Communion, also Acts of Love, which are so pleasing to Us. Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the ground, in order that many Souls may be saved. Do not go outside the house. Provide yourself with sufficient food. The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear. Have courage! I am in the midst of you.” (January 28, 1950; emphasis added.)
3 Days of Darkness in Greater Detail
“Take care of the animals during these days. I am the creator and preserver of animals as well as man. I shall give you a few signs beforehand, at which time you should place more food before them. I will preserve the property of the Elect, including the animals, for they shall be in need of sustenance afterwards as well. Let no one go across the yard, even to feed the animals - whoever steps outside will perish! Cover your windows carefully. My Elect shall not see My wrath. Have confidence in Me, and I will be your protection. Your confidence obliges Me to come to your aid.”
“Hurricanes of fire will pour forth from the clouds and spread over the entire earth! Storms, bad weather, thunderbolts and earthquakes will cover the earth for two days. An uninterrupted rain of fire will take place! It will begin on during a very cold night. All this is to prove that God is the Master of Creation. Those who hope in Me, and believe in My words, have nothing to fear because I will not forsake them, nor those who spread My message. No harm will come to those who are in the State of Grace and who seek My Mother’s protection.”
“That you may be prepared for these visitations, I will give you the following signs and instructions: The night will be very cold. The wind will roar. After a time a thunderbolt will be heard. Lock all the doors and windows. Talk to no one outside the house. Kneel down before a crucifix, be sorry for your sins, and beg My Mother’s protection. Do not look during the earthquake, because the anger of God is Holy! Jesus does not want us to behold the anger of God, because God’s anger must be contemplated with fear and trembling.”
“Those who disregard this advice will be killed instantly. The wind will carry with it poisonous gases which will be diffused over the entire earth. Those who suffer and die innocently will be Martyrs and they will be with Me in My Kingdom. Satan will triumph! But in three nights, the earthquake and fire will cease. On the following day, the sun will shine again, Angels will descend from Heaven and will spread the spirit of peace over the earth. A feeling of immeasurable gratitude will take possession of those who survive this most terrible ordeal, the impending punishment, with which God will visit the earth since creation.”
“I have chosen Souls in other countries too, such as Belgium, Switzerland, and Spain, who have received these revelations, so that other countries also may be prepared. Pray the Rosary, but pray it well, so that your prayers may reach Heaven. Soon a more terrible catastrophe shall come upon the entire world, such as never before has been witnessed, a terrible chastisement never before experienced!”
“How unconcerned men are regarding these things which shall so soon come upon them, contrary to all expectations. How indifferent they are in preparing themselves for these unheard of events, through which they will have to pass so shortly! The weight of Divine balance has reached the earth! The wrath of My Father shall be poured out over the entire world! I am again warning the world through your instrumentality, as I have so often done heretofore.”
“This catastrophe shall come upon the earth like a flash of lightning at which moment the light of the morning sun shall be replaced by black darkness! No one shall leave the house or look out a window from that moment on. I Myself shall come amidst thunder and lightning. The wicked shall behold My Divine Heart. There shall be great confusion because of this utter darkness in which the entire earth shall be enveloped, and many, many shall die from fear and despair.”
“On that day, as soon as complete darkness has set in, no one shall leave the house, or look from out of the window. The darkness shall last for a day and a night, to be followed by another day and night, plus another day. But, on that night, the stars will shine again, and on the next morning the sun shall rise again, and it will be Springtime!”
the days of darkness, My Elect shall not sleep, as did the Disciples in
the Garden of Olives. They shall pray incessantly, and they shall
not be disappointed in Me. I shall gather My Elect. Hell
will believe itself to be in possession of the entire earth, but I shall
reclaim it.” (February 7, 1950; emphasis added).
