Chapter XV – The Beast
At the consummation of time, the red Dragon, the fallen angel Lucifer, wielding unlimited power, creates a Son – thereby originating a Trinitarian operation – borne in its evil nature that lives its existence of absolute pride and complete hate. The infernal imitator, Satan, begets a Beast that bears dominion over the whole peoples of the Earth. This Beast, is the fruit of a millennial rebellion, a process of cosmic confrontation between God and Lucifer, that originates from the beginning of Time and which armed with the premeditated and lucid reasons of angelic intelligence, oppose the Godhead and pose the solution to the sempiternal cry of defiance of the light-bearer at the inception of primeval Evil: “I am right.”
A system of political government motivated by a will to power ruled by fear and strengthened by force that plans to metamorphose rebellious self-love into a belligerent hate that embraces deliberate extremist revolution yielding the final monstrous error of total and complete totalitarian tyranny with the promise of a false Earthly peace, at the price of apostasy from the Truth: the Beast is an entity that owes its existence from the labor of Evil since the Origin and whose finality is the Negation. A synthesis of the errors generated by human power that weighs with the mass of its iniquitous acts the mark of Earthly Redemption in the adoration of a false Christ: millenarianism. It is the apparent solution to the problem of spiritual autonomy and rational freedom, a tentative that solves through human political power the matter of the human condition and provides a fulfillment to the supernatural direction of History. The preternatural intervenes to realize for humanity its own manifest destiny, under the awesome rule of the Beast, the course of Time finds its purposeful meaning, substituted for the True Head of the human race, it operates the secret and hidden creation of man, presenting for the human person, the presence of a forceful god.
“And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy.  And the beast, which I saw, was like to a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his own strength, and great power.  And I saw one of his heads as it were slain to death: and his death’ s wound was healed. And all the earth was in admiration after the beast.  And they adored the dragon, which gave power to the beast: and they adored the beast, saying: Who is like to the beast? and who shall be able to fight with him?  And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things, and blasphemies: and power was given to him to do two and forty months.
 And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. And power was given him over every tribe, and people, and tongue, and nation.  And all that dwell upon the earth adored him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb, which was slain from the beginning of the world.  If any man have an ear, let him hear.  He that shall lead into captivity, shall go into captivity: he that shall kill by the sword, must be killed by the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” – Revelation 13:1-10
The commensurate will to power is a strength of the Earth, yet, it originates from the depths of the sea; it operates the false Redemption of the human species, and, proposes a fearsome Head to govern the whole world. In reality, the Beast represents the final end of the process of the human identification with the spirit and the thought of hell, it is the consummation of a marriage between the netherworld and the Earth, inspired by the former to blaspheme the Godhead and offer adoration to a tenebrous deity. Truly, the Monster wants to cancel in the believers and even in the elect, the luminous chrism of Redemption, the Greek Tau, in order to erase the memory of God in the human being and transform the latter into a hellish, and demonic creature animated by a false light that is the depth of darkness itself.
The sea, this vast expanse of majesty and towering beauty, presents in its silent and dynamic waters the source of secret and hidden knowledge, a depth of comprehension that penetrates into the mysteries of Creation and which by the machinations of Evil are revealed by a false light that usurps the powers of nature and utilizes its virtue to sow the seeds of corruption into hearts and set them on the course to perdition and eternal damnation. Hate, is at the origin of those depths, paths known only to the initiated that yield the unripe fruits of hell itself. The Beast inherits the kingdom of the Dragon, of Lucifer, that it may subjugate the Earth, in an effort to destroy the saints and the Bride, the Perpetual Sacrifice ceases on the Earth and the adoration of blasphemy rises from the eleventh horn of the Monster, the proud mouth of totalitarian regime of human religious collectivity: “I am predestined.”
“Who is like the beast?” corresponds to Michael’s witness to Divine Supremacy at the beginning of Time, at that terrible confrontation of the angelic hosts in Heaven Lucifer uttered his “non serviam” in hateful opposition of the Divine “fiat” of the Word that created light and formed the universe ex nihilo, and giving life to chaos, a frightful convulsion out of which arose hell, the realm of Horror, Hatred, Despair, and Pride. The whole Earth is enamored with the Beast and reveres its image, a technological figure and mechanical representation of its inner monstrosity that disfigures the human soul and renders existence an artifice concerned with phenomena and a superficial appearance that resides in sense experience only.
“Maria, I will now take you by the hand to lead you in the most obscure point of John’s book. Commentators of John’s book have exhausted their intelligence in many deductions to explain to themselves and to the crowds what the ‘great Babylon’ may be. With human sight, with which the shocks due to desired events or events having taken place had something to do, they gave the name of Babylon to many things.
“But why have they never thought that the ‘great Babylon’ is the whole earth? I would be a really small and limited God the Creator had I created only the Earth as an inhabited world! With one pulsation of My will, I gave rise to worlds upon worlds from nothingness and hurled them, like luminous fine dust, into the hugeness of heaven’s vault.
“The Earth, which you earthlings are so proud of and so cruel to, is but one of the fine specks of dust rotating in the boundlessness, and not the largest one. Yet it is undoubtedly the most depraved. The millions of worlds which delight your eyes in clear nights teem with lives upon lives, and God’s perfection will be apparent to you when you can see, with the intellectual sight of the spirit reunited to God, the marvels of those worlds.
“Is Earth by any chance not the ‘great harlot’ that fornicated with all the powers of earth and hell? Haven’t earthlings prostituted themselves body and soul so as to triumph in earth’s days?
“Yes it is so. Earth’s crimes have all the names of blasphemy, as does the Beast with which Earth and its inhabitants have allied themselves to triumph. The seven sins are like a horrible ornament on the head of the Beast which leads Earth and earthlings to the pasture of Evil, and the ten horns, a metaphorical number, show the infinite foul deeds done to get, whatever the cost, all that the Beast’s frenzied greed decrees.
“Is Earth by any chance not soaked with the martyrs’ blood? Isn’t it drunken with this holy liquor which, being swallowed by its sacrilegious mouth, has turned within it into a potion of cursed drunkenness? The Beast which drives the Earth is the combination and synthesis of all the evil done since Adam onwards. In order to triumph in the world and in the flesh, it draws behind itself those who, worshipping it, will become sovereigns of one hour and of a doomed reign. You are sovereigns as children of God, with an eternal reign. But you become sovereigns of one hour and of a doomed reign when you worship Satan, who can give you nothing but a fleeting triumph paid for at the cost of an eternity of horror.
“The Beast, John says, was and is not. At the end of the world, it shall be thus. ‘It was,’ because it really existed; ‘it is not,’ because I, Christ, will have defeated it and buried it because it will no longer be necessary, then, for the triumphs of the world.
“Isn’t Earth sitting on the waters of its seas, and hasn’t it used these to do harm? What has it not used? Peoples, nations, races, borders, the economy, food, expansion, everything has been of use for it to fornicate and carry out boundless slayings and Iscariotical betrayals. Earth’s own children, fed by it with sin-blood, will carry out God’s vengeance on it, destroying it, destroying themselves, bringing the sum total of crimes against God and against humanity to the complete number which demands My thundering ‘Enough!’
“At that hour the blood of martyrs and of prophets will boil again, steaming with an agreeable fragrance up to My throne. And the clods of the earth, which gathered the moans of those tremblings, will give out a great yell, made of all those holy moans. And the clods will quake with dread’s upheaval, shaking the cities and people’s homes where sin and murder are committed, and filling them with a voice urging the vault of Heaven for Justice.” (“The seven scourges; Babylon; the waterfalls of grace”, a message from Jesus Christ taken from The End Times As Revealed to Maria Valtorta).
From the Origin of the rebellion in Heaven, Satan wants to constitute his own people in opposition to the Kingdom of God, in order to contradict the Eternal and Divine Word who is the True Head of the visible Creation and of the supernatural realm, of the physical universe and of the rational world. Earth, is the home of man, and is the ground of the battle between two opposed powers and irreconcilable principles moved by Love and by Hate, by Humility and by Pride, by Perfection and by Horror, by Happiness and by Despair. The eschaton, is the series of human events motioned by supernatural revelation and preternatural intervention, resulting in the finality of History, of the poem of Love written on the Book of Creation by the Godhead since the Genesis of Heaven and of Earth. Freedom, that most eminent quality of rational creatures is a gift misused from the inception, whose imperfect contemplation has produced its own annulment and the slavery of Sin itself, a chaos in the subject that destroys Order and cancels the Beauty of being.
In a homily on June 29th, 1972, Pope Paul VI revealed “It is as if from some mysterious crack, no, it is not mysterious, from some crack the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God”. The Second Vatican Council was convened from October 1962 to December 8th 1965, closing on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. In some respects, it has implemented the thought and the practice of the partisans that are enemies of the Woman, that synagogue of creatures in human guise that militate for the destruction of dogma, the adoration of human reason, the elevation of human conscience, a Democratic notion of civil equality and human uniformity, and the adoption of the Protestant religious cult that abolishes religious truth and deprives the Sacramental nature of the Roman Catholic Church of its Divine power and of its supernatural virtue: the Free-Masons.
“In this terrible struggle, there comes up from the sea, to the aid of the Dragon, a beast like a leopard. If the Red Dragon is Marxist atheism, the black beast is Freemasonry. The Dragon manifests himself in the force of his power; the black beast on the other hand acts in the shadow, keeps out of sight and hides himself in such a way as to enter in everywhere. He has the claws of a bear and the mouth of a lion, because he works everywhere with cunning and with the means of social communication, that is to say, through propaganda. The seven heads indicate the various Masonic lodges, which act everywhere in a subtle and dangerous way.
This black beast has ten horns and, on the horns, ten crowns, which are signs of dominion and royalty. Masonry rules and governs throughout the whole world by means of the ten horns. The horn, in the biblical world, has always been an instrument of amplification, a way of making one’s voice better heard, a strong means of communication.
For this reason, God communicated his will to his people by means of ten horns which made his law known: the ten commandments. The one who accepts them and observes them walks in life along the road of the divine will, of joy and of peace. The one who does the will of the Father accepts the word of his Son and shares in the redemption accomplished by Him. Jesus gives to souls the very divine life, through grace, that He won for us through his sacrifice carried out on Calvary.
The grace of the redemption is communicated by means of the seven sacraments. With grace there becomes implanted in the soul the seeds of supernatural life which are the virtues. Among these, the most important are the three theological and the four cardinal virtues: faith, hope, charity, prudence, fortitude, justice and temperance. In the divine sun of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, these virtues germinate, grow, becomes more and more developed and thus lead the soul along the luminous way of love and of sanctity.
The task of the black beast, namely of Masonry, is that of fighting, in a subtle way, but tenaciously, to obstruct souls from traveling along this way, pointed out by the Father and the Son and lighted up by the gifts of the Spirit. In fact if the Red Dragon works to bring all humanity to do without God, to the denial of God, and therefore spreads the error of atheism, the aim of Masonry is not to deny God, but to blaspheme Him. The beast opens his mouth to utter blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name and his dwelling place, and against all those who dwell in heaven. The greatest blasphemy is that of denying the worship due to God alone by giving it to creatures and to Satan himself. This is why in these times, behind the perverse action of Freemasonry, there are being spread everywhere black masses and the satanic cult. Moreover Masonic acts, by every means, to prevent souls from being saved and thus it endeavors to bring to nothing the redemption accomplished by Christ.
To the seven theological and cardinal virtues, which are the fruit of living in the grace of God, Freemasonry counters with the diffusion of the seven capital vices, which are the fruit of living habitually in the state of sin. To faith it opposes pride; to hope, lust; to charity, avarice; to prudence, anger; to fortitude, sloth; to justice, envy; to temperance, gluttony.
Whoever becomes a victim of the seven capital vices is gradually led to take away the worship that is due to God alone, in order to give it to false divinities, who are the very personification of all these vices. And in this consists the greatest and most horrible blasphemy. This is why on every head of the beats there is written a blasphemous name. Each Masonic lodge has the task of making a different divinity adored.” (Message of the Virgin Mary to Roman Catholic priest Don Stefano Gobbi at Milan, Italy, June 3rd 1989, Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary)
In truth, Free-masonry has infiltrated the Church, aided by its allies, the atheistic Communists who militate for the destruction of Roman Catholicism.
“e The lamb, in Holy Scripture, has always been a symbol sacrifice. On the night of the exodus, the lamb is sacrificed, and with its blood, the doorposts of the houses of the Hebrews are sprinkled, in order to remove them from the punishment which on the contrary strikes all the Egyptians. The Hebrew Pasch recalls this fact each year, through the immolation of a lamb, which is sacrificed and consumed. On Calvary, Jesus Christ sacrifices Himself for the redemption of humanity; He Himself becomes our Pasch and becomes the true Lamb of God who takes away all the sins of the world.
f The beast has on its head two horns like those of a lamb. To the symbol of the sacrifice, there is intimately connected that of the priesthood: the two horns. The high priest of the Old Testament wore a headpiece with two horns. The bishops of the Church wear the miter with two horns to indicate the fullness of their priesthood.
g The black beast like a leopard indicates Freemasonry; the beast with the two horns like a lamb indicates Freemasonry infiltrated into the interior of the Church, that is to say, ecclesiastical Masonry, which has spread especially among the members of the hierarchy. This Masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church. If the task of Masonry is to lead souls to perdition, bringing them to the worship of false divinities, the task of ecclesiastical Masonry on the other hand is that of destroying Christ and his Church, building a new idol, namely a false christ and a false church.
h Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God; He is the Word incarnate; He is true God and true Man because He unites in his divine Person human nature and divine nature. Jesus, in the Gospel, has given his most complete definition of Himself, saying that He is the Truth, the Way and the Life.
i Jesus is the Truth, because He reveals the Father to us, speaks his definitive word to us, and brings all divine revelation to its perfect fulfillment.
j Jesus is the Life, because He gives us divine life itself, with the grace merited by Him through redemption, and He institutes the sacraments as efficacious means which communicate grace.
k Jesus is the Way which leads to the Father, by means of the Gospel which He has given us, as the way to follow to attain salvation.
l Jesus is the Truth because it is He – the living Word – who is the font and seal of all divine revelation. And so ecclesiastical Masonry works to obscure his divine word, by means of natural and rational interpretations and, in the attempt to make it more understandable and acceptable, empties it of all its supernatural content. Thus errors are spread in every part of the Catholic Church itself. Because of the spread of these errors, many are moving away today from the true faith, bringing to fulfillment the prophecy which was given to you by me at Fatima: `The times will come when many will lose the true faith.’ The loss of the faith is apostasy. Ecclesiastical Masonry works, in a subtle and diabolical way, to lead all into apostasy.
m Jesus is the Life because He gives grace. The aim of ecclesiastical Masonry is that of justifying sin, of presenting it no longer as an evil but as something good and of value. Thus one is advised to do this as a way of satisfying the exigencies of one’s own nature, destroying the root from which repentance could be born, and is told that it is no longer necessary to confess it. The pernicious fruit of this accursed cancer, which has spread throughout the whole Church, is the disappearance everywhere of individual confession. Souls are led to live in sin, rejecting the gift of life which Jesus has offered us.
n Jesus is the Way which leads to the Father, by means of the Gospel. Ecclesiastical Masonry favors those forms of exegesis which give it a rationalistic and natural interpretation, by means of the application of the various literary genres, in such a way that it becomes torn to pieces in all its parts. In the end, one arrives at denying the historical reality of miracles and of the resurrection and places in doubt the very divinity of Jesus and his salvific mission.
o After having destroyed the historical Christ, the beast with the two horns like a lamb seeks to destroy the mystical Christ which is the Church. The Church instituted by Christ is one, and one alone: it is the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church, founded on Peter. As is Jesus, so too is the Church founded by Him which forms his Mystical Body, truth, life and way.
p The Church is truth, because Jesus has entrusted to it alone the task of guarding, in its integrity, all the deposit of faith. He has entrusted it to the hierarchical Church, that is to say, to the Pope and to the bishops united with him. Ecclesiastical Masonry seeks to destroy this reality through false ecumenism, which leads to the acceptance of all Christian Churches, asserting that each one of them has some part of the truth. It develops the plan of founding a universal ecumenical Church, formed by the fusion of all the Christian confessions, among which, the Catholic Church.
q The Church is life because it gives grace, and it alone possesses the efficacious means of grace, which are the seven sacraments. Especially it is life because to it alone is given the power to beget the Eucharist, by means of the hierarchical and ministerial priesthood. In the Eucharist, Jesus Christ is truly present with his glorified Body and his Divinity. And so ecclesiastical Masonry, in many and subtle ways, seeks to attack the ecclesial devotion towards the sacrament of the Eucharist. It gives value only to the meal aspect, tends to minimize its sacrificial value, seeks to deny the real and personal presence of Jesus in the consecrated Host. In this way there are gradually suppressed all the external signs which are indicative of faith in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, such as genuflections, hours of public adoration and the holy custom of surrounding the tabernacle with lights and flowers.
r The Church is way because it leads to the Father, through the Son, in the Holy Spirit, along the way of perfect unity. As the Father and the Son are one, so too must you be one among yourselves. Jesus has willed that his Church be a sign and an instrument of the unity of the whole human race. The Church succeeds in being united because it has been founded on the cornerstone of its unity: Peter, and the Pope who succeeds to the charism of Peter. And so ecclesiastical Masonry seeks to destroy the foundation of the unity of the Church, through a subtle and insidious attack on the Pope. It weaves plots of dissension and of contestation against the Pope; it supports and rewards those who vilify and disobey him; it disseminates the criticisms and the contentions of bishops and theologians. In this way the very foundation of its unity is demolished, and thus the Church becomes more and more torn and divided.” (Message of the Virgin Mary to Roman Catholic priest Don Stefano Gobbi at Dongo, Italy, June 13, 1989, Anniversary of the Second Apparition at Fatima)
The assembly of the Adversary schemes to erect a false Church founded on a naturalist humanism and a rational theology that abolishes dogma and removes religious truth in an effort to unite the different sections and the divergent populations of humanity. Here, sin is presented with an admixture of a spirit of error that celebrates carnality, malforms the human conscience, and permits erroneous theological instruction. The Monstrosity of the son of the Dragon reigns after the sign of Redemption has been annulled by apostasy, a false enlightenment communicated from the depths of hell which consecrates the human soul in its thought, its action, and its feeling to an anti-human spirit that denies truth and blasphemes the Divinity. Satan wants to be the Head of the human race and constitute for his reign a people of sons instructed by a false light.
This false light, this opposite of the Word Incarnate, Perfection of Horror as the Incarnate Word is Perfection of the Perfection, finds its fulfillment at the end of the world in a historical person: Antichrist. It is the Beast in human form, in human appearance armed with a penetrating intelligence, a quasi-omniscience that fascinates the crowds seeking human novelty, the thirst for material enjoyment, and miraculous wonders that possess the imagination. This Beast, reigns in the darkness of Hate and preaches self-love as the center of the human being’s intentional activity. This chosen creature believes himself to be the Son of God born of “demoniacal pride and human lust” who is to direct the destinies of peoples and nations and transform the Earth into the kingdom of hell that recognizes only malice and pride as virtues and whose ultimate ambition is to sit on the Throne of Heaven at the right hand of the Power and deprive the Empyrean of its Light.
“Christ arose from among the Hebrews, and he (Antichrist) will spring from among the Jews. Christ showed His flesh as a Temple, and raised it up on the third day; and he, too, will raise up again the Temple of stone in Jerusalem.” (St. Hippolytus)
“Antichrist, the son of perdition will be born in Corozain, will be brought up in Bethsaida and shall begin to reign in Capharnaum, according to what Our Lord Jesus said in the Gospel: “Woe to thee Corozain … woe to thee Bethsaida … and thou Capharnaum that art exalted up to heaven, thou shalt be thrust down to hell. (Luke, 10:13) Antichrist shall work a thousand prodigies on earth. He will make the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk, the dead rise, so that even the Elect, if possible, shall be deceived by his magical arts. Puffed up with pride, Antichrist shall enter in triumph the city of Jerusalem and will sit on a throne in the Temple to be adored as if he were the Son of God. His heart being intoxicated with arrogance, he will forget his being a mere man, and the son of a woman of the tribe of Dan.” (St. Zenobius)
“Antichrist will be born of Jewish parents, of the tribe of Dan, but his mother will not be a virgin, as many believe. As the Holy Ghost came into the heart of Mary, so will the devil enter into the mother of Antichrist, and his diabolical power will always support him. Babylon will be his birthplace, but he will be reared and instructed in Bethsaida and Corozain. After his education at the hands of malignant spirits he will go to Jerusalem and place his seat in the Temple which he will have restored. He will submit to the rite of circumcision, claiming that he is the Son of the Omnipotent God. His first converts will be kings and princes. His influence will extend from sea to sea, largely through force and persuasive eloquence. He will perform many signs and great miracles. Those who believe in him will be marked on the forehead with a sign. For three and a half years he will hold sway and, at the end of that period, he will put to death Henoch and Elias, who will have previously opposed him by preaching the true faith. Shortly afterwards, Christ will appear, and Antichrist will be killed by Michael the Archangel.” (Adso the Monk, 10th century)
Three and half years of bestiality, horror, blasphemy and sacrilege, a rule of virulent persecution of the new Israel, the people of God whose blood shed in tribulation proves the consolation of the Godhead and the act of perfect adoration issuing from the sacrifice of supernatural life and material existence. The Earth desires the Beast and bears the sign of bestial possession whose numerical mark dictates totalitarian force and determines social, economic and political activity: 666, the number of a man.
“j Lucifer, the ancient serpent, the devil or Satan, the Red Dragon, becomes, in these last times, the Antichrist. The Apostle John already affirmed that whoever denies that Jesus Christ is God, that person is the Antichrist. The statue or idol, built in honor of the Beast to be adored by all men, is the Antichrist.
k Calculate now its number, 666, to understand how it indicates the name of a man. The number, 333, indicates the divinity. Lucifer rebels against God through pride, because he wants to put himself above God. 333 is the number which indicates the mystery of God. He who wants to put himself above God bears the sign, 666, and consequently this number indicates the name of Lucifer. Satan, that is to say, of him who sets himself against Christ, of the Antichrist.
l 333 indicated once, that is to say, for the first time, expresses the mystery of the unity of God. 333 indicated twice, that is to say, for the second time, indicates the two natures, that of the divine and the human, united in the divine Person of Jesus Christ. 333 indicated thrice, that is to say, for the third time, indicates the mystery of the Three Divine Persons, that is to say, it expresses the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity. Thus the number, 333, expressed one, two and three times, expresses the principal mysteries of the Catholic faith, which are: (1) the Unity and the Trinity of God, (2) the incarnation, the passion and death, and the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
m If 333 is the number which indicates the divinity, he who wants to put himself above God Himself is referred to by the number 666.
n 666 indicated once, that is to say, for the first time, expresses the year 666, six hundred and sixty-six. In this period of history, the Antichrist is manifested through the phenomenon of Islam, which directly denies the mystery of the Divine Trinity and the divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ. Islamism, with its military force, breaks loose everywhere, destroying all the ancient Christian communities, and invades Europe, and it is only through my extraordinary motherly intervention, begged for powerfully by the Holy Father, that it does not succeed in destroying Christianity completely.
o 666 indicated twice, that is to say, for the second time, expresses the year 1332, thirteen hundred and thirty-two. In this period of history, the Antichrist is manifested through a radical attack on the faith in the word of God. Through the philosophers who begin to give exclusive value to science and then to reason, there is a gradual tendency to constitute human intelligence alone as the sole criterion of truth. There come to birth the great philosophical errors which continue through the centuries down to your days. The exaggerated importance given to reason, as an exclusive criterion of truth, necessarily leads to the destruction of the faith in the word of God. Indeed, with the Protestant Reformation, Tradition is rejected as a source of divine revelation, and only Sacred Scripture is accepted. But even this must be interpreted by means of the reason, and the authentic Magisterium of the hierarchical Church, to which Christ has entrusted the guardianship of the deposit of the faith, is obstinately rejected. Each one is free to read and to understand Sacred Scripture according to one’s personal interpretation. In this way, faith in the word of God is destroyed. The work of the Antichrist, in this period of history, is the division of the Church and the consequent formation of new and numerous Christian confessions which gradually become driven to a more and more extensive loss of the true faith in the word of God.
p 666 indicated thrice, that is to say, for the third time, expresses the year 1998, nineteen hundred and ninety-eight. In this period of history, Freemasonry, assisted by its ecclesiastical form, will succeed in its great design: that of setting up an idol to put in the place of Christ and of his Church. A false christ and a false church. Consequently, the statue built in honor of the first beast, to be adored by all the inhabitants of the earth and which will seal with its mark all those who want to buy or sell, is that of the Antichrist. You have thus arrived at the peak of the purification, of the great tribulation and of the apostasy. The apostasy will be, as of then, generalized because almost all will follow the false christ and the false church. Then the door will be open for the appearance of the man or of the very person of Antichrist!” (Message of the Virgin Mary to Roman Catholic priest Don Stefano Gobbi at Milan, Italy, June 17th 1989)
The totality of the Earth follows the Error, even Rome; as matter of fact, Rome loses the faith and degenerates into sacrilege and blasphemy. The mystery of iniquity is revealed in the Luciferian attempt at destroying the faith of Peter, the light that illumines the world, strengthens believers, and holds back the tides of Evil. A mystery related to the priesthood, the necessary instrument of right religion; the apostasy of the priesthood is a catastrophe that begets a Monster, the Antichrist, that is outside the power of Redemption and that is born in damnation without a rational, spiritual, and immortal soul – a new Judas for the end days, a Son of Perdition who breathes the hellish air of Satanism on the Earth.
“Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist.
“Now is the time; the abyss is opening. Here is the King of Kings of darkness; here is the Beast with his subjects, calling himself the Saviour of the world. He will rise proudly into the air to go to Heaven. He will be smothered by the breath of the Archangel Saint Michael. He will fall, and the earth, which will have been in a continuous series of evolutions for three days, will open up its fiery bowels; and he will have plunged for all eternity with all his followers into the everlasting chasms of hell. And then water and fire will purge the earth and consume all the works of men’s pride and all will be renewed. God will be served and glorified.” (Secret of La Salette to Melanie Calvat, September 19th 1846)
The Beast is predestined, chosen from Eternity in the purpose for the revelation of the mystery of iniquity, hidden in the truth and the reality of predestination. The Antichrist presents a paradoxical but necessary instrument of Redemption that serves to operate the willful separation within humanity between the sons of Heaven and the sons of Earth – the latter in league with Hell – of the Eternal City of Jerusalem, and the Earthly Babylon, a process of Salvation that Antichrist is convinced, will prove to its term the acts of self-affirmation from the beginning of Time that results ineluctably in the deification of man, apart and in terrible separation from Divine government and its Eternal Law. The Son of Evil can be “redeemed” virtually solely by fulfilling the prophecy of Divine Foreknowledge and by providing for the Church of God the reality of its own Resurrection after the fatal persecution of Death and of the Tomb, a truth that provides for the Godhead a chosen People of immaculate saints purified and rendered spotless in the crucible of fire, a painful foretaste of the Wedding between Jesus Christ and his Bride. The secret of the Divine Science, of the realization of Peace on the Earth, is the humble submission to the decree of the Divine Omniscience, which is the acceptation of the personal predestination to glory, and to the individual foreordaining to reprobation of each human creature since the beginning of Time. The Beast can upset the cosmic laws for it reveals the truth of predestination, itself the foundation of the Eternal Law, the cosmic laws according to which “thou hast ordered all things in measure, number, and weight.” (Wisdom 11:21) Having conquered the saints, upset the foundations of the universe, been the reason for natural cataclysms, and put to death Enoch and Elijah, the Negation of God is subjected to a global quake that shakes the foundations of the Earth; the Son of darkness elevates in the air in order to ascend to Heaven but Fire falls down from on high in the power of St Michael the Archangel and consumes it into the chasm of Hell.
The Beast is Negation. A Horror that denies the Rock of Salvation and cancels the Redemption of the human species, evident in its annulment of personality replaced by numerical identity, a mark and a sign of Despair, of a dark Kingdom that enslaves the cosmological centrality of the Earth – a Negation of religion – negates the spirituality of the soul – a Negation of reason – blasphemes the principal certainty of the Divinity of Christ present in the Eucharist in the abolition of the Breaking of the Bread – a Negation of Truth and of the historical fact of the Incarnation – and obscures the human person’s Divine origin – a Negation of man; a fundamental menace and a cosmic threat that is conquered only by the Perfection of being, of Truth and of Wisdom, of Holiness and of Charity, of the complete Science of God and of Light in the intelligence. Antichrist reigns on the Earth but the Kingdom of God triumphs of Time and directs History to its purposeful End: the renovation of Creation and the Eternal Union between the Lamb and His People, the Roman Catholic Church.
