The Great Apostasy
Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Vallese
June 11, 1988
- "On the feast of my Immaculate Heart of this Marian Year,
to me, beloved sons, I am calling all of you to enter into the heavenly
garden which I have built for you, during these painful and bloody
of the purification.
- The hour of the great apostasy has come.
What has been foretold in Holy Scripture, in the Second Letter of Saint
Paul to the Thessalonians, is now on the point of coming to pass.
- Satan, my Adversary, with snares and by means of his subtle
has succeeded in spreading errors everywhere, under the form of new and
more updated interpretations of the Truth, and he has led many to
with full knowledge -- and to live in -- sin, in the deceiving
that this is no longer an evil, and even that it is a value and a good.
- The times of the general confusion and
the greatest agitation of spirits has come. Confusion has
into the souls and the lives of many of my children.
- This great apostasy is spreading more
more, even through the interior of the Catholic Church.
are being taught and spread about, while the fundamental truths of the
faith, which the authentic Magisterium of the Church has always taught
and energetically defended against any heretical deviation whatsoever,
are being denied with impunity.
- The episcopates are maintaining a strange silence and are no
reacting. When my Pope speaks with courage and reaffirms with force the
truths of the Catholic faith, he is no longer listened to and is even
criticized and derided. There is a subtle and diabolical tactic, woven
in secrecy by Masonry, which is
today against the Holy Father in order to bring ridicule upon his
and his work and to neutralize his Magisterium.
- Those children of mine who, often unknowingly, allow themselves
be carried along by this wave of error and of evil are victims
of the great apostasy.
- Many bishops, priests, religious and faithful are victims
of the great apostasy.
- In these times, in the Catholic Church, there will remain a
little remnant who will be faithful to Christ, to the
and to its entire truth. The little remnant will form a
little flock, all guarded in the depths of my Immaculate
This little flock will be made up of those bishops, priests, religious
and faithful who will remain strongly united
the Pope, all gathered together in the cenacle of my
Heart, in an act at unceasing prayer, of continual immolation, of total
offering to prepare the painful way for the second and glorious coming
of my Son Jesus.
- On this feast of mine in this Marian Year, I address to all those
wish to become part of the little flock the motherly invitation to
themselves to my Heart, to live in intimacy of life with me, to become
my courageous apostles in these last times, because the moment when my
Immaculate Heart must be glorified before all the Church and before all
humanity has come."
