Will a Purification for humanity begin in Fall 2020?

Storm clouds develop over protestors
The prophetic pulse--Is a period of global Purification/Warning beginning this Fall?

“When you see clouds building in the west, you say at once, ‘A storm shower is coming’; and so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘It's going to be hot’ and so it is. So why is it then that you cannot read the signs of the times?" Luke 12:54-56

The "Signs of the Times"
The prophetic world seems on fire lately. Prophets and prophecies abound in Catholic circles, and in the greater christian community as a whole. In the spiritual realm, due to a malevolent virus we have all experienced closed Churches, with the inability for most of the Catholics in the world to be able to receive Jesus in Holy Communion, and even the ability to have one's sins forgiven in Confession has also been prevented in many areas throughout the world up to this point. Thankfully, summer in the Northern Hemisphere seems to be bringing with it a bit of a reprieve from this malevolent virus. And make no mistake--this virus is malevolent and evil at its source. But this is a subject for another time.

Out on the streets of America and in many other countries we have had fervent protests with quite a bit of lawlessness in many areas. Many business and even some Churches have been vandalized, looted or set aflame, not to mention the toppling of numerous statues and monuments dedicated to various persons once admired and respected.

Many persons have commented lately that the world really seems to have gone mad. There is seemingly so much division and divisiveness, and we all know who the author and formentor of division is. To this writer it all calls to mind the Scripture quote at the top of this article concerning reading the signs of the times: "When you see clouds building in the west you say at once, ‘A storm shower is coming’; and so it happens." 

Do not the storm clouds really seem to be building upon humanity in these times? What, if anything can we gather from the current signs of the times?

 “For the Lord GOD does nothing without first revealing his secret to his servants, the prophets" -Amos 3:7
As we can see, Scripture states that nothing significant happens to humanity without God first announcing it first through the prophets. So what are the purported prophets of our time saying? Could we be on the precipice of something significant happening in the world?

Thankfully in this vein we have a wonderful collaboration of four persons who have recently put together a noteworthy website entitled "Countdown To The Kingdom" (www.countdowntothekingdom.com) wherein some messages from purported visionaries and prophets of our time have been highlighted.

Father Michel Rodrigue (Queen of Peace Media, YouTube)
One of the more notable persons who has been making some significant waves recently in the mystical and prophetic world is a Catholic priest from Quebec named Father Michel Rodrigue, who is the founder and Superior General of a new religious Fraternity (officially a "Lay Association") entitled "Fraternité Apostolique Saint Benoît-Joseph Labre" (The Apostolic Fraternity of St. Benedict Joseph Labre).

Along with being a founder of a religious Fraternity, Fr. Michel Rodrigue claims to receive heavenly visions and messages, and in addition he has also been appointed as an exorcist, and his experiences in this area has given him some very interesting perspectives on the spiritual battles that we all endure.

The Blessed Virgin Mary Herself has reportedly named Fr. Michel “Apostle of the End Times.” A good deal of information concerning him can be read on the aforementioned website, along with a number of video retreats that he has made which are published here on Youtube

We report, you discern
As stated here, Fr. Michel's bishop, Rev. Gilles Lemay, does not support Fr. Michel's private revelations; he stated to Fr. Michel, in writing, that he does not support the idea of "...the Warning, the chastisements, the third World War, the Era of Peace, any construction of refuges, et cetera."

At the same time it is important to also point out that Fr Michel is reportedly in good standing with his bishop, and his private revelations have not been formally condemned. For his part, Fr. Michel has reportedly always sought to be obedient to his bishop and his directives.

With that said, for the purposes of this article let us now highlight some of Fr. Michel Rodrigue's purported prophecies concerning the Purification/Warning and what he foresees will soon be occurring for humanity.

In a letter to his supporters dated March 26, 2020 Fr. Michel writes the following:
"My dear people of God, we are now passing a test. The great events of purification will begin this fall. Be ready with the Rosary to disarm Satan and to protect our people. Make sure that you are in the state of grace by having made your general confession to a Catholic priest. The spiritual battle will begin.

-Dom Michel Rodrigue, fabl

We of course know that the 'month of the Rosary' is October, and he adds that '..great events of purification will begin this fall'. 

In what would seem to be a preparation for what Fr. Michel warns of to occur this fall, in another letter to his supporters dated March 24, 2020 he writes the following:
"....After this period of compulsory confinement [due to virus outbreak -editor], life will resume its course. The summer period will open a window of time where we will be able to prepare well for the coming test … that of being with Jesus on the Cross. We cannot see the Glorious Cross without encountering the cross with Jesus.

"You must now consecrate your house or apartment to the Eternal Father through the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary if you have not done so. We must regularly bless our places, our homes, with exorcised holy water. During this summer, you need to prepare a food supply for a period of three months, with drinking water, too. You will need to have made your general confession before fall. The prayer of the Holy Rosary, of Saint Michael the Archangel, and that of your guardian angels will be your comfort, your strength, your protection."

Economic collapse, Revolution, Martial law and World War III?
Along with a global 'Purification' that Fr. Rodrigue says will begin this Fall 2020, he also foresees the following:
"...There will be famine. Jesus presented this to me just recently. I was in my room, and when I sat down, preparing to go to bed, I saw a black cavalier coming. This means famine. I heard, “They will have money, but they will have no bread,” which means that you can have money to buy it, but you will find nothing.

"Then all money will crash, so it is good to give your money away now, as it will disappear. There will be a great uprising. You will see revolution in your streets. People will fight each other openly. The government will have no other choice than to institute martial law. At the same time that martial law begins, so will the war. 

And here is more on the "war" that Fr. Michel was purportedly shown:
"He [the devil -editor] will start a nuclear war that will be global—the third world war—his war against all of humanity. The devil will kill one third of humanity in this war, and through plagues and abortion, just as one third of the angels were cast out of heaven into hell. Seven nuclear missiles will be permitted to strike the United States as a result of its abominations. Many nuclear missiles will be deflected by the Hand of God because America prays the Divine Mercy Chaplet. I was told this by the Eternal Father.

"...And I know that the war will come from two countries: One is Korea and the other is Iran. They will come together to face the United States of America."

Father Michel Rodrigue, 2020  (YouTube, Queen of Peace Media)
"Fighting against each other for Political reasons"
And elsewhere he states:
"The times are urgent. The Tribulation will come, and it will be soon. We are in a time of emergency. When the Father gave me the fraternity, He asked me to build it quickly because it will be a refuge for many priests who will come there. Much of what you will witness will be orchestrated by the devil. You will see people fighting against each other for a political reasons. The persecution of Christians, which has already begun, person to person through ridicule and accusation, will come from laws that are lawlessness. You will not be able to follow these laws in good conscience, so persecution will then fall under civil authority."

The world wide Warning/Illumination of conscience
The following is some of Fr. Michel Rodrigue's explanations concerning the Warning:
".....Then the Warning will come. I saw this. The stars, the sun, and the moon will not shine. All will be black. Suddenly in the heavens, a sign of Jesus will appear and light up the sky and the world. He will be on the Cross, not in His suffering, but in His glory. Behind Him in a pale light, we will appear the face of the Father, the True God. It will be something, I assure you.

From the wounds in Jesus’ hands, feet, and side, bright rays of love and mercy will fall onto the entire Earth, and everything will stop. If you are in an airplane, it will stop. If you are riding in a car, don’t worry—the car will stop. If you ask me, “How can that be?” I will say, “God is God. He is the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and Earth. If He put Fr. Michel out in there the universe, like a piece of dust, do you think He cannot stop matter? Do you believe that your small airplane will bother Him? No. This is what God told me; but He has also told such things to others, like at Garabandal, which St. Padre Pio believed in.

Everything will be fixed in time, and the flame of the Holy Spirit will enlighten every conscience on Earth. The shining rays from Jesus’ wounds will pierce every heart, like tongues of fire, and we will see ourselves as if in a mirror in front of us. We will see our souls, how precious they are to the Father, and the evil within each person will be revealed to us. It will be one of the greatest signs given to the world since the Resurrection of Jesus Christ."

Elsewhere Fr. Michel has stated:
"After the Warning, no one left on Earth will be able to say that God does not exist. When the Warning comes, everyone will recognize Christ, and they will also recognize His Body, and the body of Christ is the Catholic Church.

"...After the illumination of conscience, humanity will be granted an unparalleled gift: a period of repentance lasting about six and a half weeks when the devil will not have the power to act. This means all human beings will have their complete free will to make a decision for or against the Lord.

"...When the devil returns after six and a half weeks, he will disseminate a message to the world through the media, cell phones, TV’s, et cetera. The message is this: A collective illusion happened on this date. Our scientists have analyzed this and found it occurred at the same time that a solar flare from the sun was released into the universe. It was so powerful that it affected the minds of the people on Earth, giving everyone a collective illusion.

"The devil fools us even now through the new priests of the world: television journalists who want you to think what they think, so they present only the news that is their opinion. They twist the truth and you are hypnotized, manipulated into believing them."

A time of Refuges

Fr. Michel also speaks of a time after the Warning\Illumination of conscience where those who repent of their sins and have chosen God will be led to "Refuges", which are special places throughout the world that are set aside by God, and have been created by people who were called to do so beforehand, somewhat like Noah and the Ark for example--an we are in times like that of the great Flood, where sadly much of the world is corrupted by sin.

"....After the six and half weeks following the Warning, when the devil’s influence returns, you will see a little flame in front of you, if you are called to go to a refuge. This will be your guardian angel who shows this flame to you. And your guardian angel will advise you and guide you. In front of your eyes, you will see a flame that will guide you where to go. Follow this flame of love. He will conduct you to a refuge from the Father.

"If your home is a refuge, he will guide you by this flame through your home. If you must move to another place, he will guide you along the road that leads there. Whether your refuge will be a permanent one, or a temporary one before moving to a bigger one, will be for the Father to decide. The Father told me that a permanent refuge will have a well. This is important. That will be the sign that it is a permanent refuge.

"All of the refuges will be connected together. People in each refuge will be chosen as messengers. They will be declared in each refuge with this gift. They will be taken by the Holy Spirit to go and help, connecting with other refuges so that people will know what is happening everywhere. If you are in need, the messengers will know what to do. They will be like Philip in the Acts of the Apostles. You remember in the Bible when Philip, the apostle, went to the eunuch and baptized him, and immediately afterward, the Holy Spirit took Philip away and put him in another place? It will be exactly the same. So we will need no phones, nothing like that. Communication will be in the way of the Holy Spirit."

"The Father told me that when people enter a refuge, many will be healed of major illnesses so as to not be a burden to others. You will still suffer from normal aches and pains because you are human and not in heaven yet, just in a refuge. Everyone will be there willingly, knowing that the blessing of the Lord is upon them.

For three and half years, you will be in your refuge or in your home consecrated as a refuge, but you will not be sad not to go out. You will be happy to be there because of what you will see is happening outside."

Father Michel Rodrigue has also spoke of other matters, which space does not permit here. Those interested can read more at the 'Virtual retreat' here and/or watch his retreats on YouTube

Conchita Gonzalez of Garabandal in 2019
Garabandal and the visionary Conchita
Once again I would like to reiterate that this article is published under the category of "We report, you discern". This writer makes no claims for or against Fr. Michel Rodrigue's private revelations. It can be noted in the quote above the Fr. Michel mentions Garabandal and that much of what he has stated concerning the predicted world wide Warning closely corresponds to what was purportedly revealed by the Blessed Virgin Mary to the visionary Conchita Gonzalez in Garabandal in the early 1960's (one of the 4 visionaries at Garabandal).

And speaking of which, Conchita was reportedly given the date of the "Miracle" which she was told by the Blessed Virgin Mary would occur right after the Warning. Conchita was not only told the exact date of the great Miracle, she was told that she would be instructed by heaven to announce the Miracle to the world publicly 8 days before it occurs.

Now, one of the obvious requirements here is that Conchita must be alive to announce it to the world. Since she was born on February 7, 1949, she is therefore currently 71 years old. With this in mind one could conclude that the time for the Warning and Miracle is likely coming soon.

As for Fr. Michel Rodrigue, a prophet is judged by his prophecies. Time will tell whether they are authentic, or not. Meantime we would do well to bear in mind the Scriptural directive in 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21: "Do not despise prophecies, but test everything and hold fast to what is good."

Much of what Fr. Michel has stated would have sounded quite unlikely 6 months ago, but not so unlikely now with the lock-downs, rioting, global economic downturn and other current events. We shall see. Meantime with all that has been going on throughout the world it's probably a good idea to get ones "spiritual house" in order by going to confession, deeper prayer life etc, along with having some food, water and essentials stored away just in case, as an insurance policy.

Fr Khouri said...

Beware of false prophets. This priest makes great claims. America will be spared much of the destruction of nuclear war because it prays the Divine Mercy chaplet? How about its abortion numbers or the great sins of the Church in America? I'm glad that this one
prayer is so powerful. Personally, since the priest mentions Grarabandal I think he is a phony. We'll see.

David said...

There seems to be almost too much detail and specificity in this priests predictions. Also, his own Bishop does not believe him. Not a good sign. Should the faithful follow this priest and disregard what his Bishop says?

Just remember that the predictions of Fr. Stefano Gobbi never materialized. And Fr. Gobbi’s messages had multiple Imprimaturs and endorsements from many Cardinals and Bishops. Also Fr. Gobbi said Mass on occasion with Saint John Paul II yet his prophecies never came true and Fr. Gobbi is now dead almost a decade.

I CAN NOT FORGET 04/21/ 2020

Douay-Rheims Bible Prophecy of Joel Chapter 2
[28] And it shall come to pass after this, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy: your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. [29] Moreover upon my servants and handmaids in those days I will pour forth my spirit. [30] And I will shew wonders in heaven; and in earth, blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke.
Do these dreams pertain to the WARNING?

I don’t know what time it was, it must have been between 3:00 AM and 5:00 AM, All I know I was a sleep.
The dream: I saw a real bright light; it was all white, like I was looking straight into a bright light bulb. Then I heard a great big explosion and everything went black. It was so real, I thought our house breaker box blew up and we lost our electric power. (It really scared me) I open my eyes and it wasn’t so black. I looked at my lamp indicator light and it was on, (working). I knew then I had been dreaming, but it was so real.

P.S. 4/7/2019
Sometime during the night I had another dream and it happen twice in the same night. All I can say is all I saw was a deep black and I mean a deep dark black, and it scared me and I woke up yelling. Again it was so real; I thought we lost our electricity, but when I open my eyes I could see we had not lost our electrical power. In both of the dreams there was no light or sound as I had before, just deep blackness, and so real and each time I yelled out.

P.S 8/3/19
At about 3:11 AM - Again I had the same dream, only it went real fast. Again all I can say is all I saw was a deep black and I mean a deep dark black, and it scared me and I woke up yelling. Again it was so real; I thought we lost our electricity, but when I open my eyes I could see we had not lost our electrical power in the dream there was no light or sound , just deep blackness, and so real and I yelled out. I looked at my watch and as close as I could read it was 3:11 AM.

On the morning of 10/2/19 ( I don’t know what time) while I was sleeping early in the morning I had a flash of darkness and a gain it scared me, I thought we had lost our electric power, I looked at my light indicator and saw that we had not lost our electric power. So I went back to sleep.

I do not remember what time it was, but I had a dream that was very scary. I dream that a very bright wave of light was being forced down my mouth, (my mouth was wide open and felt I was being filled up and about to explode. I screamed and I woke up and threw my covers off. Looked at my wife to see if I woke her up. I didn’t.

01/13/20? Not sure this is right the date as I did not write it down.
I had another dream. I saw a flash of darkness, I screamed and woke up. Again I though we lost our electric. I checked and we did not lose our electric.

I had a dream of a flash of light. It scared me, I screamed and woke up. Checked my watch and it was 3:39 AM.

It was around 3:30 AM 01/24/20. The dream was a quick flash of dark Blackness. It scared me, but not as bad as the other dreams. I wake up right when it happen and check to see if we had lost our electric power and we didn’t. I went back to sleep.

Charles Fears said...

About 11:30 PM as I was sleeping, all of sudden in a flash I saw a deep blackness; I woke up and yelled out. This time my wife was awake and heard me. She ask me if I was all right and I said yes. Again I thought we lost our electric power, which we did not. This all happen within seconds.

02/19/20 3:30 AM
I was sleeping, all of sudden in a flash I saw a deep blackness; I woke up and yelled out, but not as loud. This time it last maybe a second longer and I was not quite afraid. Maybe I am getting used to it. I am still praying about it. To know what it means.

03/06/20 about 4:30 AM
A very flash of darkness awoke me and my right arm felt numb for a few minutes.

Again about or between 2:00 and 5:00 AM. A flash of great darkness awoke me and I yelled out, then about 30 min. later it happen again!!!

04/07/20 AT 3:15 AM
A very flash of darkness awoke me as I yelled out Ruth, (my wife’s name)

04/10/2020 at 1:30
A very flash of darkness awoke me as I yelled OH

4/21/20 at 2:44 AM
I had a flash of light. It was made like a light bulb blew up.

6/10/20 some time AM I did not look at my watch
I had a flash of darkness

I do not understand why I have been given these dreams or what they mean. I have been praying about them, that God would be clear to why I am getting them and what do they mean. Although they have scared me, I am at peace while I am praying and thinking about them, and trying to understand them. I do feel that the warning will happen soon, wither that it is this year or some near year. I do know that it will happen and that it takes a long time to prepare for it.

From catholic.com,

Here is the response of Monsignor Gilles Lemay to your request concerning Father Michel Rodrigue:

Peace be with you :

I thank you for your e-mail requesting some information about the teaching and the standing of Father Michel Rodrigue, a priest incardinated in the diocese of Hearst-Moosonee, Ontario, and working in this diocese of Amos, Québec, for a few years. He is the founder of the Fraternité Saint-Benoît-Joseph-Labre , a lay association of the faithful which is not a religious institute.

As you probably did too, I read on the Countdown to the Kingdom website related to Fr Michel and also in the book of Christine Watkins, The Warning. Testimonies and Prophecies the Illumination of Conscience (Note 84, p. 278 and p. 280), that : “ Michel Rodrigue receives the full support of his bishop, and all of his locutions and visions are submitted to his local ordinary for approval. “ This quotation was removed these days from the website after a request I sent to Fr Michel. No mention is made of the reason for the removal, that is to say: because it was untrue. However, the quotation remains in the book mentioned above.

I have to tell you that Fr Michel never submitted to me any of his locutions and visions for discernment or approval. Accordingly, I could not have supported the content of his talks which are not presented in my diocese nor elsewhere in the Province of Québec as far as I now, but mostly in the United States. Moreover, I learnt about his teaching while reading some reports on the website mentioned above. I did not and I do not approve his teaching with regard to his locutions and visions. Consequently, it is untrue that he “receives the full support of his bishop” as it is written in the Countdown to the Kingdom website and in the quoted book.

I thank you for your request. If you wish any further information, I will be pleased to respond as much as possible.

Truly yours in Christ,

+ Gilles Lemay,

Bishop of Amos, Quebec

Glenn Dallaire said...

Excellent information! Thank you Mary H. for posting this.

So, if I'm reading it correctly essentially bishop Lemay has approved of and supports Fr. Rodrigue's "Lay Association" and priestly ministry, HOWEVER he (very rightly!) wants to distance himself from Fr. Rodrigue's purported visions and predictions.

If such is the case then I couldn't agree more. I definitely think that it is always a good idea for bishops to be very cautious and prudent concerning purported visionaries---especially in what concern alleged grave "heavenly warnings", predictions and alleged messages from heaven. The key is for them and all of us of course is to be prudent and cautious, but without being cynical, but unfortunately historically one can find many bishops who have dismissed all mystics/visionaries outright, which is not good either.

Without a doubt it can be difficult to strike a balance between not despising prophecy and being open to the workings of Holy Spirit, while at the same time being prudently cautious and avoiding being swayed or deceived by misled or false visionaries/mystics. With this in mind I personally always endeavor to take a neutral "wait and see" approach when it comes to such persons.

Thanks again Mary for your comments and may God bless you and your loved ones,

I had heard of Fr Rodrigue. He states at he had a vision of Our Lady while at Knock, where she spoke to him.

Some of his prophesies seem to be similar to the warning from Our Lady of Akita.

Thank you, again, Glenn

Anonymous said...

Fr. Rodrigue's alleged prophecies also contain weird New World Order conspiracy-esque stuff. We'll see what, if anything, happens in October to December. I suspect some folks will shoehorn something into his prophecies after the fact to say he predicted it but personally I think nothing will come of it and he will be shown to be false. The things he predicts are very far removed from the main corpus of 18th-21st century Catholic prophecy and that already is a big red flag.

In regards to Fr. Michel I have watched his virtual retreat on www.countdowntothekingdom.com.
He certainly appears to be genuine,joyful, balanced and transparent. What has he to gain by lying? Nothing ultimately, but disaster for his soul. He seems to LOVE Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother with all his mind, heart and soul. It is true that our Bishops have to be prudent. But, it is also true that there is, sadly, much corruption in our Beloved Catholic Church, in these days and times. Many priests, bishops and cardinals have been living less than saintly lives. They have bought into modernism, and scoff at the mystical aspects of our faith. Time will tell as far as Fr. Michel's authenticity is concerned. Meanwhile, it behooves all of us to PRAY!PRAY!PRAY! for our Pope and ALL our shepherds.

Father Gobbi’s locutions did NOT accompany dates ... their delay is from prayer NOT failure of accuracy... he n Pope JP II said Christmas Eve Mass together for over a decade, should Christ appear ... does that invalidate their holiness ? ....

Unknown said...

Fr Rodrigue last year counselled everyone to go to Confession by the end of 2019. What happened in very early 2020? The Corona virus came and all churches closed. There were no sacraments available up to now 21st June 2020, not even the Last Rites.

Katy said...

Things that his Bishop says he does not believe in, are things that are backed up by scripture , by the church, by tradition, by the catechism, and by many Saints.

Thank you for this article Glenn.
It is interesting to read different perspectives on what is known about Father Rogrigue. I very much enjoy his talks. He uses a style which is a cross between Bishop Fulton Sheen and Father Stefan Gobbi. At least from my perspective.

I very much appreciate the way you have shown the Bishops position, and it makes total sense. Of course a Bishop would wait and see if this is all coming from God. It does not mean the Bishop does not believe what is written in the Bible on these matters. I believe the Bishop simple is not convinced these things are about to happen withing the next year. And who could blame him. I think we are all much in the same boat as the Bishop in that regard.

While much of the content of Father Rogrigue's messages are dire, we can Trust in God to keep us safe no matter what the future holds. So why worry as long as we strive to live in a state of Grace, and hold on to our Faith.

David said...

I know the Bishop issued a statement saying he doesn’t believe Fr. Rogrigue. But is that enough? Shouldn’t the Bishop investigate this priest? You have a Roman Catholic priest in good standing who is saying one-third of the world will shortly die, people will need to go to refuges led by angels, the world economy will collapse and money will be worthless, there will be a world wide warning, 7 nuclear bombs will be detonated in the United States, etc. Wouldn’t it make sense for the Bishop to speak with Fr. Rogrigue?

Glenn Dallaire said...

Great comment David! Yes, given that he is a solid priest in good standing, and given the gravity of his prophecies for humanity, I personally would say that it would be wise if his Bishop would do a serious and through investigation of his private revelations.

Hi Glenn,

With charity, you mention the toppling of statues but not the events that caused them to occur. You mention the protesting but do not mention that it is in response to death and racism (which is a major problem still to this day in the US)....as Catholics, it's very important that we remember that being "pro-life" extends past being anti-abortion. All lives, at every stages, matter :) I always have to put this as a disclaimer, I do not belong to any political party before someone labels me as a crazy leftist or right wing nut. I am against violence for any reason BUT I can at least begin to question...what is the hurt that lies behind this and make sure we don't leave it out- this is more than just statues :)

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Ashleigh,
Thanks for your comments. I agree with much of what you state. I mentioned the global illness, the global protests and toppling of statues etc, just to highlight some of the serious events occurring presently at this time--I did not go into details of the causes simply because they were outside of the scope of this article, and really the website itself. As an example, I mentioned in the article how I personally believe that "...this virus is malevolent and evil at its source. But this is a subject for another time."
-In other words I try to stick with the topic at hand when writing articles. Nevertheless your points are well taken. Thank you once again for your comments!
May God bless you and your loved ones,

Yes,people are hurt because of racism. And racism is wrong and a sin. But destroying statues and looting is not the answer. I don't think saints protested injustices with looting and I know it's not the fault of the peaceful protesters but of those that infiltrated the protests with bad motives. I don't say this from a politically motivated view. Destroying statues is vandalism. And stealing is a mortal sin. Justice is not about violence. The apostles and martyrs never fought against injustice with more violence,they were merciful towards their enemies. And some people now want to destroy statues of Jesus,Mary and the Saints,and that's sacrilege. Some have spray painted churches. What kind of behavior is that? Even Marthin Luther King's niece is against the violence.https://www.850wftl.com/mlks-niece-alveda-king-reacts-to-riots-and-protests-after-george-floyds-death/

Nine unarmed black Americans were killed in 2019 by police; all of which were investigated by the local DA. Nineteen unarmed white Americans were killed in 2019 by police. Eighty nine police officers were killed in 2019. The vast majority of violent crime is black on black. In Chicago recently, over one hundred people, mostly black, were shot in one weekend; fourteen died. Where's the outrage against gangs & drugs, which were behind this carnage? The most dangerous place for a black person is in his or her mother's womb. Where's the outrage?

Racism is real in America, but, despite claims, not at all rampant. Affirmative action programs, which, although limited by the US Supreme Court, still exist in 41 states. These programs, in fact, disadvantage white students, when applying to college.

Back to the topic at hand, I feel the escalating violence and unstable nature of both our country and world indicate that something big is probably coming this fall. God help us all.

This blog post pertains to the prophecies of Fr. Michel Rodrigue. He is talking about 7 nukes being detonated in the United States, all money becoming worthless, famine, and angels leading the faithful to refuges while one-third of mankind dies in WWIII. And is is all supposed to take place, or at least much of it, in October of this year. Not sure why the discussion has morphed into one on racism.

Thank you Anonymous, at the end of the day, we are not fighting against each other, black on black, white on white, black on white...we are all the same skin, just different variations of it because of the sun. While we are here fighting each other, the devil is infiltrating and winning souls. Let's turn back our eyes on the Lord. Let's love one another, lets denounce hatred of all kind, racism, looting stores, etc. We can agree on this yes? God bless you, i'm removing notifications from this thread, I really want to stay out of online debate. At the end of the day, the Lord sees our hearts, lets be at peace!

OhOh Father Gobbi prophesies is passing and is coming to pass.Take note. The word comming soon may means 20 years or 30 years. The apparition of Medjugorje is approaching 30 years in the blink of the eye.

Anonymous said...

Mathew 24 is a deep chapter but Christ is clear. No one knows the hour. Do we believe? He tells us of many deceptions and signs. If I recall Fr. Gobbi in the preface acknowledges the probability of deception by the evil one. This is great humility and an acknowledgement of his limitations.

The devil is an angelic being without Christ we are no match. Revelations are of a divine nature passing through a finite biased mind. Could we have fully understood the third secret of Fatima before the attempted assassination of the pope? This is why any revelation needs to be submitted to the church. Christ never condones disobedience to the church because He is the church. Even when a priest is wrong you are asked to submit the church, Padre Pio, St Teresa of Avila, St. Catherine of Sienna, etc. Christ will correct the situation in His time. The church places more weight on a virtuous life than miracles and revelations.

This pandemic reminds me of when HIV/Aids came into play. The panic, hysteria, stigmatization, etc. Does anyone think of it today? COVID is the new norm until Christ frees us of it or he grants us medication. Let it help us to turn back to Christ. In His mercy he allow's it to draw us back to Him.

“Do not think that the sorrowful conditions on earth do not move Me; but I love souls; I wish them to be saved; and in order to achieve My end I am constrained to be severe; but believe Me, I do it out of mercy! During times of abundance souls forget Me and are lost; in times of distress they turn to Me and save themselves. This is indeed the way it happens!” Jesus Appeals to the World, Sr. Consolata Betrone Pg 20

Two clergymen, an American Protestant Pastor and a Canadian Catholic Priest recently saw that a nuclear conflict with North Korea and Iran erupts as the US declares nationwide martial law to quell domestic civil unrest occurring in November 2020, which almost certainly results from the outcome of the presidential election. The Canadian priest said he understood that 7 nuclear warheads detonate on the US but did not indicate the missiles’ country of origin.

This recent information corroborates a 2016 video by a young woman who had a vision of a virus / plague (corona virus?), nuclear war with North Korea, followed by the appearance of the antichrist.

Unknown said...

I have to say, I'm grateful that Fr. Rodrigue's predictions ("prophecies" is too sacred a word to use) will be known to be true or not in a very short period of time. I'm not up for another Charlie Johnston-style run of far-off, dreadamocus events. Certainly not one that this priest's true believers use to push conspiracy theories of dubious origin.

From Luke, Ch. 12:
He also said to the crowds, “When you see cloud rising in the west you say immediately that it is going to rain—and so it does; and when you notice that the wind is blowing from the south you say that it is going to be hot—and so it is. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky; why do you not know how to interpret the present time?

Now the times have certainly been difficult lately; unrest over endemic racism, a stubborn pandemic, death counts rising, political division. Certainly there is the potential for more upheaval——history tells us things can go sideways in the most perplexing and unpredictable ways. Just stick the the "blocking and tackling" of being a good Catholic Christian: Love God and love your neighbor. Be strong. You'll be fine.

Anonymous said...

I agree with the above comment, but what should we do about Father Michel’s prescription that we need to store 3 months supply of food and water and we must set up a blessed shrine to the Holy Family in our homes so that the chastisement will spare our home refuges? Does God really expect the faithful to take these steps if this priest’s own Bishop says he doesn’t believe him?

Anonymous said...

Also what seems to be “different” about these prophecies is that there is no way to avert them. That is, the USA will suffer strikes from 7 nuclear bombs, and one third of humanity will die. The prophecy is not unless we repent this will happen, but it WILL happen no matter what. Usually warnings from heaven are conditional based on people’s response but his prophecies are not. That’s not to say they are not true, but certainly different. Also in the history of Catholic prophecy has there ever been such specificity in what will happen and with exact timelines?

Anonymous said...

Things *could* get tough. We unfortunately have a president in the U.S. who wants to win desperately. So put on your Christian big boy/big girl pants. We believe in a Man who was crucified. What can be worse than that? Stay strong. Don't worry. Don't be afraid. You will probably die peacefully in bed....or not. No matter what, stay the course. If you keep the faith you will have all the help you need —"now and at the hour of our death." Let peace reign in your heart.

BTW, being a prepper should be a distant second to being a good Christian.

Interesting article by Dr. Mark Miravalle regarding Fr. Rodrigue:


Anonymous said...

David, thanks for that. One would think Dr. Miravalle's assessment would be more than enough to view Fr. Rodrigue's claims as fantastical, unworthy of serious consideration. IMO, his bishop should be more explicit in advising the faithful to focus on the gospel message.

Another thing: I wonder why so many current day prophets write and speak in ways that are so unlike the prophets of the O.T. as well as of John the Baptist. Biblical prophets' prophecies aim squarely at the Messiah. Reading the Johnstons and Rodrigues I get a sense of people whose focus is not on Christ but on their own psychological makeups. Why is that?

Just for the historical record: A protestant pastor in Kentucky, Dana Coverstone, had a series of dreams in late 2019 about the COVID plague and riots that later came true in 2020. After this, he had other dreams that appear to corroborate Fr. Michel's visions. Coverstone saw that in November 2020 intense riots erupted throughout the USA, eventually leading to intervention by the United Nations forces that included Russian and Chinese troops.
Three Prophetic Dreams from Pastor Dana: https://youtu.be/6TdpMSMP9x4?list=TLPQMDIwNzIwMjAUoVF0pMooqQ

I bring this to everyone's attention because the information from the two men presents a very plausible military scenario.

Essentially this: Leftist militants riot in October to influence in their favour the outcome of the November 2020 election. However, it seems the preferred candidate of the militant leftists does not win the presidency and they experience a major disappointment. The militant leftists respond with a huge surge of violent attacks, riots, & looting, which escalates to such an extent that US authorities declare nationwide martial law.

According to Fr. Michel when martial law is declared, Iran and North Korea, who are allies, decide to exploit the situation and attack US bases on the periphery of America's military sphere of influence: the Persian / Arabian Gulf and South Korea, and Japan. Militarily this is a good tactic: to attack an enemy on its periphery when its centre or homeland is severely disrupted.

Apparently, the war in Asia escalates to such an extent that North Korea fires at least 7 ICBMS into the continental USA and the nuclear warheads detonate. It is reasonable to conclude that North Korea also uses nuclear weapons on US bases in South Korea and Japan. This is why Fr. Michel is urging people to go to confession before all this happens as they could unexpectedly lose their lives from civil unrest & nuclear strikes; or illness & famine in the aftermath.

In the aftermath of nuclear strikes in Asia and the USA, it is almost certain that international cargo shipping out of Asia likely will be curtailed and domestic cargo & food shipments within the USA will be hindered. Transport disruptions will lead to severe commodity and food shortages, which explains why Fr. Michel urged people to store food AND water. The water needs to be stored to protect it from radioactive Iodine which is released in nuclear explosions and is water soluble. Iodine is absorbed by the thyroid gland. Radioactive Iodine will contaminate reservoirs downwind from the nuclear strikes.

Overall, we have information from two credible sources warning of plausible domestic civil unrest that is exploited by two foreign military enemies of America: Iran & North Korea. Both men point to the same time frame: Autumn 2020.

The two men have a history of personal and spiritual integrity. As a result, their testimonies can be considered as truthful statements of their experiences. All I have done is perform some simple extrapolations of the data they have presented.

Therefore, it seems to be both prudent and wise to pray and undertake the preparations indicated by Fr. Michel. By Christmas everyone on the planet will know the truth as to accuracy of the information and the full extent of the foretold disruptions. So go to confession, adore the Eucharist & pray the rosary, and put aside some basic provisions. God be with you.

Dutchman, you say that we now have information “from two credible sources.” Who are these credible sources and what exactly makes them credible? The Protestant you quote, Dana Coverstone, is part of the heretical Assembly of God Church. They believe in the rapture, they deny the 7 Sacraments and Sacred Tradition. They deny the perpetual virginity of the Blessed Mother, and both Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart were Assemblies of God ministers before being defrocked. As A Catholic I would not consider Dana Coverstone as credible.

Dutchman, you begin your fantastic "plausible military scenario" by assuming that Leftist militants will riot in October. That's an utterly discreditable assumption. No doubt you are trying to give leftists greater power than the evidence indicates they have. So you build up the scary Antifa opposition into some kind of formidable revolutionary force. The better to scare people and guess what? Vote for Donald Trump, right? The only credible forces out there are the armed militias of the anarchist, racist right.

The rebuttal to the Mark Miravalle article was written by a Dan O'Connor who's an adjunct Philosophy Professor at a Community College and a PhD student at SUNY-Albany. In 2017, after the failed predictions of "Seer" Charlie Johnston, Mr. O'Connor wrote "Charlie is a good man and a solid Catholic. I'd trust him with my life. I am completely confident that he didn't intentionally deceive anyone. That being said, I have never endorsed his alleged private revelations or promoted his site."

Now in regards to Fr. Michel, Mr. O'Connor says "But if Fr. Michel does, or at some point, winds up being condemned or objectively proven false, then I will lose no sleep. I have never claimed, nor do I now, certainty in his authority."

So I guess when Christmas rolls around and the USA had not been hit with seven thermonuclear bombs, one-third of mankind has not been killed in WW3, there's no economic collapse, there no Warning, and angels are not leading us to refuges, Mr. O'Connor can then say the same about Fr. Michael that he did about Seer Johnston, i.e., he's a good man and a solid Catholic. I'd trust him with my life. I am completely confident that he didn't intentionally deceive anyone. That being said, I have never endorsed his alleged private revelations or promoted his site.

Mr. O'Connor obviously spent an enormous amount of time researching his rebuttal to Dr. Miravalle. Interesting that he would do that for a priest whose so-called "predictions" he's unsure of.

On another note, what does it say about Catholics who need to get themselves all fired up with threats of Warnings, Three Days of Darkness, Blood Moons, Comets hitting the earth, Chastisements, etc? Is our faith so weak that we need this drama to get ourselves to believe? I may be nuts, but there is almost a fortune-telling aspect to all this.

Anonymous said...


May I suggest you post the entire critique Dr. Miravalle sent out on Fr. Rodrigue. If you haven't read it, you should! Miravalle suggests that early brushes with the demonic--freely acknowledged by Fr. Rodrigue--require examination by the Church.

For example, as a boy Fr. Rodrigue burned down his own home, which he said was infested by demons. The young Fr. Rodrigue said he would crawl on top of a wood stove to get away from harassment. These are disturbing things, documented by Miravalle, an eminent theologian and Mariologist, who has been called on by bishops to examine purported apparitions.

As for Daniel O'Connor...he termed Professor Miravalle's exploration of diabolical influences on Fr. Rodrigue a "quibble"! O'Connor is a co-author of the "Countdown to the Kingdom" website, which heavily promotes Fr. Rodrigue through articles and videos.

(By the way, O'Connor's academic credentials have been misstated online. He is adjunct faculty at Hudson Valley Community College, NOT a professor at the State University of New York. )

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Anonymous (directly above),
Thanks for your comments and also for the information concerning the article by Dr. Mark Miravalle. He is a great evangelizer and promoter for our Lady--may God bless and reward him. Not only did I appreciate reading his perspectives concerning the private revelations of Fr. Rodrigue, I also very much appreciated Daniel O'Connors thoughtful response.

As for myself, I personally like to try to hear both sides, because it helps with my own discernment in such matters. Those who have read my articles and commentary in recent years find that I personally endeavor to take the "wait and see" approach when it comes to living visionaries and their private revelation, so long as there are not any blatant theological/doctrinal "red flags", or a judgment from the local bishop of course.

Personal experience and study has taught me that this "wait and see" is seemingly the best approach in my opinion, for on the one hand way too many mystics/visionaries have been harshly and hastily prejudged over the centuries, while on the other hand many persons have been misled by false mystics and seers over the years.

And so, taking the "wait and see" approach (just as I personally did with the prophesies and predictions of Charlie Johnston for example), time will very soon reveal the truth in the coming months concerning some of Fr. Michel's key prophecies. So why come to any personal judgement just now when events--or the lack thereof--will clearly reveal the truth one way or the other by the end of this December?

May Jesus bless you and your loved ones and may the Blessed Virgin Mary cover you under Her heavenly mantle.

It appears prudent and wise on the Bishop's part to take his stance in these events. His job is to protect the faithful. After all waiting is the true Catholic way. We like God are to be patient, wise and discerning. I did watch Fr Michel's talks and want to remind us that Father Michel is "an exorcist" and as such, has access to true spiritual warfare going on which most of us do not have access to, and our souls may not be ready to handle. An exorcist must be in a state of grace and spend much time in prayer and fasting. His Bishop knows this. Father Michel can do nothing without his Bishop's approval. Which Fr Michel is in obedience too. This is impressive and I give them both respect as Priests of The Church.

I too will follow the example of being in a state of grace, with much prayer, fasting, spiritual reading, the sacraments and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament as long I am able.

Anonymous said...

Sarah, there is a lot of truth in what you say. Those who serve as "alter Christus" must always be respected for that sacramental reality.

But beware of clericalism. The priesthood does not bestow an all-knowing, not-to-be-questioned individual in an ordained priest. We have learned the hard way—witness the priest abuse scandal—that father is not always right or to be trusted. We must be "wise as serpents and innocent as doves."

Upon Googling something related to this matter, I stumbled upon this post's comments. How sad that this anonymous commenter insists upon attacking me. I have never once stated, *to anyone,* publicly or privately, that I am "Professor of Philosophy, State University, New York." I don't know how that blurb about me was put into the Warning book; I certainly didn't write it, but now that I've been alerted to it, I've contacted the author and hopefully she is able to correct it in the book's upcoming edition. I have *never* been quiet or secretive about the fact that I am an adjunct professor at a community college; anyone interested in the matter could, at any time, have easily discovered those details of my credentials. See this post: https://dsdoconnor.com/2020/07/17/clarifications-dr-miravalle-fr-michel-fall-2020-my-credentials/

As for Mr. Anonymous' claim that I "obviously spent an enormous amount of time" researching my rebuttal to Dr. Miravalle, I would like to know exactly how that is possible, being that I posted the rebuttal the day after Dr. Miravalle published his own article. In fact, I spent very little time researching and writing it, as Dr. Miravalle's 10 points were so clearly erroneous and/or unjust that addressing them was very simple and straightforward.

I too, like Glenn, am taking the "wait and see" approach to Fr. Michel; meanwhile I will happily defend him against any unjust or otherwise erroneous accusations/criticisms (as Dr. Miravalle's, in fact, were) even while encouraging my readers to take Fr. Michel's advice: namely, to repent, go to Confession, pray the Rosary, and consecrate one's self to the Holy Family.

That's pretty good advice.

In Christ, through Mary,

The chastisements predicted by Fr. Rodrigue pale in comparison to the catastrophes which await the world if humanity does not stop sinning and repent.
At Fatima, Our Blessed Mother warned that failure to consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart will lead to wars, famine, and persecution of the Church, culminating in the annihilation of various nations.
Here's the relevant text of the Second Part of Secret ...
"To save them [poor sinners who are on the road to hell], God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse war will break out during the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions against the Church and against 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 on the First Saturdays. If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated."
At Akita,our Blessed Mother's warning is more grave...
"As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests."
The "fire falling from the sky" has occurred in Earth's history. During the geological period named the 'Younger Dryas", the Earth underwent extremely rapid burning and cooling which event could have only been caused by either a "superflare" from the Sun hitting a great portion of the Earth or, worse still, the sun undergoing a "micronova"-it's as if the entire Sun exploded.
By the time the Church formally approves or disapproves of Fr. M. Rodrigue, it may be too late for us all.

Dear Mr. O'Connor,

I am the anonymous from July 18, 2020 at 4:34 PM. I wrote Glenn to express concerns over Fr. Rodrigue's alleged brushes with the demonic during his childhood. You suggested that demonic encounters are quite common for mystics, and dismissed Miravalle's concerns. That makes no sense, frankly. While Padre Pio may have reported this experience, you cited no evidence supporting this contention. I don't believe demonic oppression is common and expected among mystics--or else I've missed quite a bit in my reading on the saints! Calling Miravalle's worries a quibble is wrong, I believe, and is belittling to someone with far more experience than yourself in the field of private apparitions.

Also, I am quite concerned by the apparent failure of you or your Countdown colleagues to check with Fr. Rodrigue's bishop on his alleged mystical experiences before jumping head-first into promotion of them. Surely, it's embarrassing to you and the others--professionally embarrassing-- to have to make at least two sets of corrections to your introductory material on Fr. Rodrigue on the Countdown website. This, to me, seems to show inexcusably careless research.

Also careless is the mistaken identification of your qualifications, both on a book blurb and on the Countdown website's in the contributor's biography section. (The book is The Warning by Christine Watkins.) This is pretty basic stuff! Getting your position and institution wrong in "print" twice is very sloppy. How can we readers take you Countdown authors seriously, in light of such repeated errors?

Finally, you purport to outline what you and your colleagues call a "prophetic consensus." You are looking for common threads between prophecies. You don't appear to consider the known fact that copycats often base their "prophecies" on things they have heard or read in others' work. That is why the Catholic Church itself does not use any alleged "prophetic consensus" to judge messages or messengers. Instead, it uses guidelines released by the Vatican, which I don't see discussed in the Countdown site.

Why the heck don't you all stick with what the Church offers?

Interesting discussion. Here's a note from Dr. Mark Miravalle's critique of the Countdown website's presentation on Fr. Michel Rodrigue. Miravalle seems to be saying he was quoted out of context on the cover of Christine Watkins' book, The Warning.

Is this an another instance of careless editing? (To be charitable.)

20 On a related note, my theological comment regard the book, The Warning: Testimonies and Prophesies of the Illumination of Conscience by Christine Watkins, a more detailed and nuanced statement which did not appear on the cover of the book in its full content or context with which it was originally submitted to the author, called for a serious discernment and wide reading concerning the possibility of an upcoming Illumination of Conscience, which constitutes the major theme of the text. However, my supportive comment regarding the possibility of an upcoming Warning should in no sense be interpreted as a positive theological approval of all of the alleged visionaries cited in this book, which includes those of Fr. Rodrigue.

This whole business is akin to reading tea leaves. Prophetic consensus...really? I seem to remember a time not too long ago when there was a consensus in which certain prophets said that the anti-Christ is in the world: Maria Divine Mercy, the Little Pebble, Warriors of Mary, William Tapley (the Eagle of the Apocalypse), Pope Peter "the Last", Luz de Maria de Bonilla, and the list goes on.

What a strange thing Catholicism has evolved into. Mystics, seers, and sages now have polished websites and the faithful can sit in the comfort of their homes and get the latest revelation from God delivered daily to their in-boxes.

Nothing wrong with that, but it is not a non-profit, I'd guess. People should know where the $$ comes from and goes to.

For good reason the Church does not require belief in private revelation. Although much of it is good and credible, its salutary benefits must always be anchored in the Gospel. Without that connection, private revelation becomes an exercise in superstition.

The previous comment says “ It would be unwise to ignore prophecy as scripture suggests.” Well sure, if that prophecy is coming from a true prophet of course it would be unwise to ignore it. But how do we know Fr. Michel is real? Should we consider Fr. Michel’s Bishop to be unwise since he doesn’t believe this priest of his own diocese? And does God really expect the faithful to believe a prophet if that prophet’s own Bishop doesn’t? Are we somehow smarter and more clever the a successor of the Apostles who has been given divine jurisdiction over this priest?

I found a discussion on that at another forum. It said, "Three Canadian bishops banned Mark Mallett from their dioceses... Peter Bannister dedicated a book to false prophet Charlie Johnston... Christine Watkins asked an Anglican bishop closely associated with Vassula Ryden to write the forward to her book, The Warning." Also, none of the Countdown authors uses or refers to the Vatican-issued guidelines to investigate private revelation. They ignore Church standards and put forward their own standard of "prophetic consensus," which seems to mean anything that sounds all right to them!

On Pope Francis views on private revelations; from an article in Crux. Also has discussion of Pope Benedict XVI's views:

"Perhaps for Francis, his Marian devotion too is rooted in the experience of “simple believers,” and his skepticism arises not so much from theological convictions like Benedict, but rather a more pastoral concern not to see those simple believers hoodwinked by people he believes are manipulating Marian faith for their own ends."

In follow up to the video in the previous comment, as far as Medjugorje is concerned, this video says it all:


Watch as Vicka, who is supposedly in a mystical trance, darts her eyes in response to an onlooker’s fake ‘poke’ but even more telling is how after the so-called apparition she claimed her movement was in response to the Blessed Mother dropping the infant Jesus.

Give me a break.

I tend to agree with you.

Why is a slight movement from someone who appears to be poking at Vicka's eye an indication that she's not in a mystical trance? Who set the standard for what is or isn't a "mystical trance?" Why is being in a mystical trance essential to an apparition?

To me at least, that isn't any indication at all about the truth or falsity of the claim. I'm still a skeptic but not over that issue.

To anon above. Did you watch that entire video and the part where Vicka said that she was trying to catch the baby Jesus who the Blessed Mother supposedly dropped? Why did she feel the need to explain herself? Me thinks the lady doth protest too much.

Do you really think Our Lady would drop the infant Jesus?

AS I said 10:09 I'm a skeptic like you, but I don't think the truth or falsity of what is happening there depends on such details. For me the proof will be in the pudding; i.e., will the predictions we've been told about happen? The way the predictions at Fatima panned out? There's the rub.
