But not a few, not necessarily newly ordained, obviously need prayers as they have gone into the ways of this “modern” world. (Include priests who do not at all prepare for their homilies and/or who run away from dispensing Divine Mercy in boring and stifling confessionals.)
Noted Cardinal Robert Sarah in 2019: “Yes, there are unfaithful priests, bishops, and even cardinals who fail to observe chastity. But also, and this is also very grave, they fail to hold fast to doctrinal truth! They disorient the Christian faithful by their confusing and ambiguous language. They adulterate and falsify the Word of God, willing to twist and bend it to gain the world’s approval. They are the Judas Iscariots of our time.”
No less striking was what Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said amid priests being carried away by the ways of the world: “Judas is neither a master of evil nor the figure of a demoniacal power of darkness but rather a sycophant who bows down before the anonymous power of changing moods and current fashion. But it is precisely this anonymous power that crucified Jesus, for it was anonymous voices that cried, ‘Away with him! Crucify him!’”
Now to continue with Part 2 of the prophecies of Blessed Elena Aiello who was declared Blessed on September 14, 2011.
Blessed Elena’s prophecies rhyme with the messages being received from Heaven by mystics of our days, thus giving the latter some credence despite lack of Church approbation.
In 1954, The Blessed Mother told her:
“Cry out until the priests of God lend their ears to my voice, to advise men that the time is near at hand, and if men do not return to God with prayers and penances, the world will be overturned in a new and more terrible war. Arms most deadly will destroy peoples and nations! The dictators of the earth, specimens infernal, will demolish the churches and desecrate the Holy Eucharist, and will destroy things most dear. In this impious war, much will be destroyed of that which has been built by the hands of man.
“Clouds with lightning flashes of fire in the sky and a tempest of fire shall fall upon the world. This terrible scourge, never before seen in the history of humanity, will last seventy hours. Godless persons will be crushed and wiped out. Many will be lost because they remain in their obstinacy of sin. Then shall be seen the power of light over the power of darkness.
“Be not silent, my daughter, because the hours of darkness, of abandonment are near. I am bending over the world, holding in suspension the justice of God. Otherwise these things would have already come to pass. Prayers and penances are necessary because men must return to God and to my Immaculate Heart- the Mediatric of men to God, and thus the worldwill be at lest in part saved.
“Cry out these things to all, like the very echo of my voice. Let this be known to all, because it will help save many souls, and prevent much destruction in the Church and in the world.”
The followinfg year, in 1955, Blessed Elena got another message from the Blessed Mother thus:
“My daughter, it is thy Mother speaking to thee, Listen attentively, and make known all that I tell thee, because men, in spite of repeated warnings, are not returning to God. They refuse grace, and are not listening to my voice. You must have no doubt about what I am making known to you, because my words are very clear, and you must transmit them to all.’
“Dark and frightful days are approaching. Mankind is obscured by a thick fog, as a
result of the many grievous sins, which are well nigh covering the whole earth. Today, more than ever, men are resisting the calls from Heaven, and are blaspheming God, while wallowing in the mire of sin.
“My daughter, look upon my Heart pierced by the thorns of so many sins; my face, disfigured by sorrow; my eyes, filled with tears. The cause of such great sadness is the sight of so many souls going to Hell, and because the Church is wounded – inwardly and outwardly.
“The rulers of nations make so much ado and speak of peace. But instead, the whole world will soon be at war, and all mankind will he plunged into sorrow, because the justice of God will not be delayed in fulfilling its course, and these events are near. Tremendous will be the upheaval of the whole world, because men — as at the time of the Deluge — have lost God’s way, and are ruled by the spirit of Satan.
“Priests must unite by prayers and penance. They must hasten to spread the devotion to the Two Hearts. The hour of my triumph is close at hand. The victory will be accomplished through the love and mercy of the Heart of My Son, and of My Immaculate Heart the Mediatrix between men and God, By accepting this invitation, and by uniting their tears to those of My Sorrowful Heart, priests and religious will obtain great graces for the salvation of poor sinners’.
“Launch forth into the world a message to make known to all that the scourge is near at hand. The justice of God is weighing upon the world. Mankind, defiled in the mire, soon will be washed in its own blood, by disease; by famine; by earthquakes; by cloudbursts, tornadoes, floods, and terrible storms; and by war. But men ignore all these warnings, and are unwilling to be convinced that my tears, are plain signs to serve notice that tragic events are hanging over the world, and that the hours of great trials are at hand.
“If men do not amend their ways, a terrifying scourge of fire will come down from Heaven upon all the nations of the world, and men will be punished according to the debts contracted with Divine justice. There will be frightful moments for all, because Heaven will be joined with the earth, and all the un-Godly people will be destroyed, Some nations will be purified, while others will disappear entirely.
“You are to transmit these warnings to all, in order that the new generation will know that men had been warned in time to turn to God by doing penance, and thus could have avoided these punishments.
“My daughter, the time is not far off. When men least expect it, the course of Divine Justice will be accomplished.
“My Heart is so big for poor sinners, and I make use of every possible means that they may be saved. Look at this mantle, how big it is. If I were not bent over the earth to cover all with my maternal love, the tempest of fire would have already broken upon the nations of the world!
“This is the mantle of mercy for all those who, having repented, come back to My Immaculate Heart. See? The right hand holds the mantle to cover and to save poor sinners, while with the left hand I hold back the Divine Justice, so that the time of Mercy may still be prolonged.
“To help me in this, I ask that the prayer, Maternal Refuse, be spread as a most useful means to obtain graces and salvation for poor sinners, Say often with your arms crossed: “QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE, MEDIATRIX OF MEN TO GOD, REFUGE OF ALL OUR HOPES, HAVE MERCY ON US,”
