Some Prophecy by St Hildegard von Bingen

I have been told that I write in this too often but I can see these prophecies shaping up...

In this day and age when the secular is being seen as somehow a rational answer to all the world's problems, Saintly women such as St Caterhine of Siena, St. Joan of Arc, St. Hildegard von Bingen, and St. Birgitta of Vadstena (St Bridget of Sweden) are increasingly being seen as icons of the feminist movement. In my opinion these saintly women would roundly and forcefully renounced such as nonsense inspired by satan. All that is required for salvation is Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, nothing else.

We unlike our Protestant brethren who believe that prophecy ended at the death of the last apostle have approved revelations outside the scripture, such as Fatima, Lourdes, La Salette, Pontmain, etc. from which we can gain some connection to Almighty through Mary.


Hildegarde is one whose who may be seen in the light of prophecy and prophetic warning...

..."In keeping with laws of prudence, one must give them the assent of human belief [assensus fidei humanae], in that such revelations are probably and piously credible. Consequently it is possible to refuse to accept such revelations and to turn from them, as long as one does so with proper modesty, for good reasons, and without the intention of setting himself up as superior.

Though an assent of Catholic faith be not due to such revelations, they, however, deserve a human assent, according to the rules of prudence, by which they are probably, and piously credible, as the revelations of Blessed Hildegarde, St Bridget, and St Catherine of Sienna..."

Pope Benedict XIV

Below here are some prophecies of Saint Hildegard von Bingen.

Prophesies

THE MINOR CHASTISEMENT

"The time is coming when princes and peoples will reject the authority of the Pope. Some countries will prefer their own Church rulers to the Pope. The German Empire will be divided.� Church property will be secularised. Priests will be persecuted. After the birth of Antichrist heretics will preach their false doctrines undisturbed, resulting in Christians having doubts about their holy Catholic faith."

At that period when antichrist shall be born, there will be many wars and right order shall be destroyed on earth. Heresy will be rampant and the heretics will preach their errors openly without restraint. Even among Christians doubt and scepticism will be entertained concerning the beliefs of Catholicism

"Toward the end of the world, mankind will be purified through sufferings. This will be true especially of the clergy, who will be robbed of all property. When the clergy has adopted a simple manner of living, conditions will improve.

At this time as a punishment for their sins Christians especially will attempt armed resistance to those who at that time are persecuting them, sensing no concern for the death of their bodies.

"A powerful wind will rise in the North carrying heavy fog and the densest dust by divine command and it will fill their throats and eyes so they will cease their savagery and be stricken with great fear.

Then within the Christian people the Holy Godhead will accomplish signs and wonders as if accomplished them at the time of Moses with the pillar of cloud and as Michael the archangel did when he fought the heathen for the sake of the Christians. Because of Michael's help Gods faithful children will march under his protection. They will decimate their foes and achieve victory through Gods power. As a result of this a large number of heathens will join Christians in true faith and they will say the God of the Christians is true God because such wondrous works have been accomplished among the Christians.

After that there will be so few men left that seven women will fight for one man, that they will say to the man: "Marry me to take the disgrace from me." For in those days it will be a disgrace for a woman to be without child, as it was by the Jews in the Old Testament.

"Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent by an earthquake, storm and tidal waves will be devastated. It will be divided, and in great part submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea, and lose its colonies in the east through a Tiger and a Lion.

The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues. [After the] great Comet, the great nation will be devastated by earthquakes, storms, and great waves of water, causing much want and plagues. The ocean will also flood many other countries, so that all coastal cities will live in fear, with many destroyed. All sea coast cities will be fearful and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease.

For in none of these cities does a person live according to the laws of God. "Peace will return to Europe when the white flower again takes possession of the throne of France.

During this time of peace the people will be forbidden to carry weapons and iron will be used solely for making agricultural implements and tools. Also during this period the soil will be very productive and many Jews, heathens and heretics will join the Church.

"Peace will return when the Lily ascends the Throne again.� The land will be very productive . During this time weapons will be forbidden. Iron will only be used for agricultural tools. In this period the land will be very productive. Jews, heathen and heretics will join the church.

The throne of the last catholic Empire will crumble and the sceptre will fall out of the hand of him who sits on the throne. The Great Monarch by this time will be a very old man. All justice will cease and will be trodden under foot. The latter times will be more evil and corrupt in the eyes of God. Children of God will be persecuted by the most hateful means in the eyes of God. Almost immediately after the death of the Monarch comes antichrist

ANTICHRIST

When the great ruler (the Great Monarch who is to rule Europe after the collapse of Communism) exterminates the Turks almost entirely, one of the remaining Mohammadans will be converted, become a priest bishop and cardinal, and when the new pope is elected (immediately before Antichrist) this cardinal will kill the pope before he is crowned, through jealousy, wishing to be pope himself; then when the other cardinals elect the next pope, this cardinal will proclaim himself Anti-pope, and two-thirds of the Christians will go with him. He, as well as Anti-christ, are descendants of the tribe of Dan.

An unchaste woman will conceive an unchaste son. The wicked serpent who deceived Adam will influence this child in such as way that nothing good or virtuous will enter him; nor under the circumstances will it even be possible for any good to be in him.

The mark (of Antichrist) will be a hellish symbol of Baptism, because thereby a person will be stamped as an adherent of Antichrist and also of the Devil in that he thereby gives himself over to the influence of Satan. Whoever will not have this mark of Antichrist can neither buy nor sell anything and will be beheaded.

He will win over to himself the rulers, the mighty and the wealthy, will bring about the destruction of those who do not accept his faith and, finally, will subjugate the entire earth.

The streets of Jerusalem, will then shine in the brightest gold with the blood of Christians which will flow like water. Simultaneously Antichrist will try to increase his wonders. His executioners will work such miracles when they torment the Christians that the people will think Antichrist is the true God. The executioners will not permit the Christians to win the martyrs' crown easily for they will endeavour to prolong their pain until they renounce their faith. Yet some will receive a special grace from God to die during the torments.

Antichrist will make the earth move, level mountains, dry up rivers, produce thunder and lightning and hail, remove the leaves from the trees and return them again to the trees, make men sick and cure them, exorcise devils, raise the dead to life. He will appear to be crucified and rise from the dead. All in all, Christians will be astounded and in grievous doubts while the followers of Antichrist will be confirmed in their false faith.

Finally, when he shall have converted all his plans into action, he will gather his worshippers about him and tell them that he will presently ascend toward Heaven. However, at the moment of the ascension a bolt of lightning will overwhelm and annihilate him. The planned ascent into heaven will have been prepared by the artful employment of ingenious devices, and the moment at which the event was to have taken place, leading to his destruction, will produce a cloud that will spread an unbearable odour. Through this many people will again come to their senses and to understanding.

...Then the people should prepare for the last judgment, the day of which is indeed veiled in secrecy and obscurity, but not far distant..."

Richard,

On the contrary, you haven't written an eskatalogical post for a long while(unless I have missed something along the way - was not your last GCM post 3-4 years ago?)

I would be keen to know your take on the musings of your blogfellow 'Catholic Knight'.

I would also be interested to know your take on the book 'Trial, Tribulation and Triumph' by Desmund A Birch (containing only Church approved private revelation).

some commentators understand the period of peace (between the minor and major chastizement) to be a matter of centuries (reign and death of GCM followed by a conglomeration of several rulers that are not as holy and pius as the GCM but not outright wicked either) leading to a slow(ish) demise back into apostacy and sin. Others see the period of peace as a time confined to the length of the GCM's reign. Some interpret church approved private revelation to suggest that blessed candles will burn during the 3DD in one's own home, others not.

Could the nation of many culturs be Australia per chance???

When taking my adult faith formation last year, my catechetical instructor gave the nod to Birch's writing, and if I so desired, to follow Approved Private Revelation, the GCM and all that type of thing - it wasn't crack pot lunacy...

of interest, it is important to me as I come from a protestant tradition with its own private revelation, room for more, and eskatalogical end-times theology (only to the Seventh Day Adventist, which I was for 21 years prior to 5 years of detox within evangelical anglicanism - told the story here before so won't again) it was the SDA's who will be persecuted and the Catholics doing the persecuting (on acount of the seventh day Sabbath)... wonder if EGW had read these private revelations herself and simply rebadged the villains and heroes?

We serve a mighty God who will not be mocked. We are part of the Body of Christ that cannot be prevailed over by the enemy, his agencies or hell itself...

for those who think that the Church is worse than ever (re squabbles going on upon other blogs re the positive or negative ramifications for unification between SSPX and the greater Catholic Church), at least we haven't dug up a dead pope yet and put him on trial before a court led by his successor... (mad Monarchist ran a story on this last year; fascinating and even somewhat amusing in a macabre kind of way).

Let us trust in the Lord our God, His Word, its practical manifestation in the CCC and Magisterium, and His promises to us, the most beautiful of which is John 6: 53-54.

Blessings,

Sarah,
Australia.

Richard,

Amazing news!!

We had a Rosary meeting at church this evening in honour of the 95th anniversary of Fatima. (we have rosary meeting every night but Saturday; 5:30pm in Arabic, 8:00pm in English).

Well, this evening we had a Fr. from a Fantastic Franciscan order who serve Our Lady; based in Western Australia if memory serves correctly); an American gentleman. Well, he gave out Miraculous medals with the 'Prayer to the Imaculate' (I received mine last year six weeks after confirmation), then gave out Brown Scapulars with a prayer pack, prayed over us, and the little scapulars themselves, anointed us all with holy water and spoke about the promises that accompany the Brown Scapular.

I took the plunge!!

My goodness!! Richard!! It was as profound as my first communion; Immediately prior to receiving it, I felt, physically, elated, ecstatic – an amazing divine eccstacy, visceral in nature that radiated from my inmost depths outward accompanied by an amazing warmth. I couldn’t stop kissing the rosary in my hands and raising my hands in thanks (as modestly as possibl). Once it was on (A very kind young gentleman altar server in his late teens assisted me), I felt almost electric with awe and hope; a real, external sensation, not imagined or created, but as true as the day is long. I think the enemy was a bit miffed, as soon after this, the place where the scapular pieces sit front and back ached incredibly painfully accompanied with a sensation of a degree of burning; instinctively, I wanted to reach to take it off to stop said pain, but resisted, suspecting the source of the pain, leaving said scapular where it was. The pain passed soon enough, and I still feel a definite wonderful afterglow from the initial joy. Are the promises Fr. Mentioned that accompany faithful and sincere wearing of the scapular true? It’s a little thing, no bigger than a domino piece in front and back, suspended on a soft ribbon. I feel more…’protected…if this makes sense. I have felt very defeated in my faith this past while, and my soul called out for the scapular as a thirsting man calling out for water and being offered the first drops of cool revitalizing refreshment after a desert crossing. I feel physically enfolded, embraced, as if by my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself…is this a mere fancy? But it is so real! I feel protected, moreso than prior to taking on the scapular, even though I dedicate myself in prayer daily to our Lord and Lady, pray the Rosary, read Holy Scripture and trust in God’s will…

I would very much like your observations and counsel when you have opportunity to provide such.

Blessings,

Sarah.

Now you know you can't make this excellent post without me showing up!

Everything is spelled out so clearly, some of the lines may be a bit fuzzy but things are coming to a head unfortunately AND fortunately. Deo Gratias. Last Sunday was sort of amazing, a president kicked off his relection bid, a president of was elected and yet another president was sworn into office. My, my, my, in just one day.

Henri V de la Croix is out there somewhere. Deo Gratias!

Peterman, thanks for your comments, as usual they are most welcome. The time is coming soon when we can look to the Great Monarch rescuing us from ourselves. Last week we in NCvoted for an amendment to the constitution saying marriage is between a man and a woman only. No other unions are rcognized. The warfare continues as the homosexual lobby (who had thought that this one was in the bag) lost and who are now protesting by taking up the various clercks offices attempting to get a license. This is not just a law it is a constitutional amendment. BO comes out and says he is in favor of homosexual marriage, which demostrates his lack of Christianity and shows he is not a Muslim.

Sarah, all the prophecies of the brown scapular are true. The evil one is going to attack you now more intensly than ever. Hold fast and never doubt.

Bless you all Richard.
