Three Prophetic Insights from Pope Leo XIII

Tribulation Times
April 30, 2013  
(1Th 5:6-10) Therefore, let us not sleep, as others do: but let us watch, and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that are drunk, are drunk in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, having on the breast plate of faith and charity and, for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us unto wrath: but unto the purchasing of salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us: that, whether we watch or sleep, we may live together with him.

ARCHDIOCESE OF WASHINGTON: Three Prophetic Insights from Pope Leo XIII That Still speak powerfully 120 Years Later by Msgr. Charles Pope


...That is, the “time of mercy” we are in has an end; it is not indefinite, and depends upon our response to Heaven. And we must readily admit that we have not responded to the warnings and messages of Our Blessed Mother as we should have. We have not listened to nor recognized divine warnings, whether from the popes or the prophets, to bring the world back from the brink. And therefore, like the Prodigal Son, we must begin to reap what we have sown, now that the world is collectively broke—financially and most significantly, spiritually. But like the Prodigal Son, it will be precisely in chastisement that the world’s eyes will be opened, and we will be granted one last opportunity to either return home to the Father… or remain separated from Him for eternity.....
…before I come as the just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy… before I come as a just Judge, I first open wide the door of My mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice… —Divine Mercy in My Soul, Jesus to St. Faustina, Diary, n. 83, 1146

I know the words above will be alarming and even frightening to some readers. And so, by God’s grace in the days to come, I wish to write you more frequently, as my spiritual director has asked me to do. I will try, then, to keep my writings shorter. In them, with God’s help, I hope to ground your heart—not in fear—but in authentic hope that grants us a divine perspective of all things.

You are precious to me, reader… so precious to Jesus. I thank God that I have been able to share in the kind of love that St. Paul had for his readers. We will not be abandoned in these times! There is a great grace coming to the Church that will change everything. And so, turn your hearts toward Jesus, fix your eyes upon Him, join the hand of your Mother, and pray, pray, pray. For in prayer, God unites us to Himself, clothes us in armour, and grants us all the graces we need to remain faithful participants in the Kingdom.

Thoughts and Sayings of Saint Margaret Mary: Self-effacement--Detachment
16. No longer heed the feelings of immortified nature, nor the suggestions of self-love, which clamors to have, to pssess, to keep and to hoard up. Let it cry out as much as it likes; we belong to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and we must have only what He wishes us to have, and be glad to be like Him, stripped of all things.
