Number of the Beast: 666
Milan, June 17, 1989
- "Beloved sons, you now understand the plan of your heavenly
the Woman Clothed with the Sun, who, with her army, is engaged in the
struggle against all the forces of evil, in order to attain her great
in the perfect glorification of the Most Holy Trinity.
- Join me in battle, little children, against the Dragon, who seeks
lead all humanity against God.
- Join me in battle, little children, against the black beast
which seeks to lead souls to perdition.
- Join me in battle, little children, against the beast like a
Masonry infiltrated into the interior of ecclesial life in order to
Christ and his Church. To attain this end, it seeks to build a new
namely a false christ and a false church.
- -- Ecclesiastical Masonry receives orders and power from the
Masonic lodges and works to lead everyone secretly to become part of
secret sects. Thus it stimulates the ambitious with the prospect of
careers; it heaps up with goods those who are starved for money; it
its members to exceed others and to occupy the most important positions
while it sets aside, in a subtle but decisive way, all those who refuse
to take part in its designs. Indeed the beast like a lamb exercises all
its power from the first beast, in its presence, and it forces the
and all its inhabitants to adore the first beast.
- Ecclesiastical Masonry goes as far as even building a statue in
of the beast and forces all to adore this statue.
- -- But, according to the first commandment of the holy law of the
only God is to be adored and to Him alone must every form of worship be
rendered. And so they substitute for God a strong, powerful and
idol. An idol so powerful that it puts to death all who do not adore
statue of the beast. An idol so strong and dominating as to cause all,
small and great, rich and poor, freemen and slaves, to receive a mark
the right hand and on the forehead, and that no one can buy or sell
having this mark, that is to say, the name of the beast or the number
its name. This great idol, built to he served and adored by all, as I
already revealed to you in the preceding message, is a false christ and
a false church.
- But what is its name?
- In the thirteenth chapter of the Apocalypse it is written, 'This
for wisdom. Let him who has understanding reckon the number of the
it represents a human name. And the number in question is 666 (six
and sixty-six).' With intelligence, illumined by the light of divine
one can succeed in deciphering from the number, 666, the name of a man
and this name, indicated by such a number, is that of the Antichrist.
- Lucifer, the ancient serpent, the devil or Satan, the Red Dragon,
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
of the beast to be adored by all men, is the Antichrist.
- Calculate now its number, 666, to understand how it indicates the
of a man. The number, 333, indicates the
Lucifer rebels against God through pride, because he wants to put
above God. 333 is the number which indicates
mystery of God. He who wants to put himself above God bears
the sign, 666, and consequently this number indicates the name of
Satan, that is to say, of him who sets himself against Christ, of the
- 333 indicated once, that is
say, for the first time, expresses the
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
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.
- If 333 is the number which indicates the divinity, he who wants
put himself above God himself is referred to by the number 666.
- 666 indicated once, that is
say, for the first time, expresses the year
six hundred and sixty-six. In this period of history, the
Antichrist is manifested through the phenomenon of Islam,
directly denies the mystery of the divine Trinity and the divinity of
Lord Jesus Christ. Islamism, with its military force, breaks loose
destroying all the ancient christian communities and invades Europe and
it is only through my extraordinary motherly intervention, begged for
by the Holy Father, that it does not succeed in destroying Christianity
- 666 indicated twice, that is
say, for the second time, expresses the year
thirteen hundred and thirty-two. In this period of history, the
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
alone as the sole criterion of truth. There come to birth
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
the word (Parola) of God. Indeed, with the Protestant Reformation,
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
has entrusted the guardianship of the deposit of faith, is obstinately
rejected. Each one is free to read and to understand Sacred Scripture
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
is the division of the Church and the consequent formation of new and
christian confessions which gradually become driven to a more and more
extensive loss of the true faith in the word (Parola) of God.
- 666 indicated thrice, that is
say, for the third time, expresses the year
nineteen hundred and ninety-eight. In this period of history,
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
A false christ and a false church. Consequently, the
statue built in honor of the first beast, to be adored by all the
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
the peak of the purification, of the great tribulation and of the
The apostasy will be, as of then, generalized because almost all will
the false christ and the false church. Then the door will be open or the
appearance of the man or of the very person of the Antichrist!
- This is why, beloved children, I have wanted to enlighten you
the pages of the Apocalypse which refer to the times you are living
This is to prepare you with me, for the most painful and decisive part
of the great struggle which is on the point of being fought out between
your heavenly Mother and all the forces of evil which have been let
- Take courage! Be strong, my little children. To you befalls the
in these difficult years, of remaining faithful to Christ and to his
putting up with hostility, struggle and persecution. But you are a
part of the little flock, which has the task of fighting against, and
the end of conquering the powerful force of the Antichrist.
- I am forming you all, defending you and blessing you."
