“Satan Must Reign in the Vatican. The Pope Will be His Slave”

The Lepanto Institute http://www.lepantoinstitute.org

The bold proclamation in the headline of this article was personally witnessed by St. Maximillian Kolbe in 1917 as he watched Freemasons celebrate their bicentennial in St. Peters Square as they marched in parade.

The banners observed by St. Maximilian call to mind the battle plan against the Catholic Church as established by Freemasons.  In 1859 the French Cardinal Jacques Cretineau-joly published Masonic documents,  obtained by the Vatican,  in his book ‘The Roman Church Facing the Revolution’. The documents came from a lodge of Freemasonry called the Alta Vendita.

Twenty six years later, in 1885,  Msgr. George Dillon published an English translation of these documents in his book:  ‘Grand Orient Freemasonry Unmasked as the Secret Power behind Communism.”

( This would certainly explain the words of Our Lady in reference to “the errors of Russia” being spread throughout the world as she spoke these words to the three children of Fatima during Her famous apparition in 1917 .  During this time frame she gave a request that Russia be converted to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the Pope and the Bishops of the world in a ceremony together.  She promised “Peace” if this Act of Consecration were  to be done.  There is an official Vatican party line saying the consecration has been done.  There are many others of great knowledge in the Hierarchy and amongst the Priesthood who say “NO it has not been done”.  IF IT HAS BEEN DONE, WERE IS THE PEACE? )

The Alta Vendita is saying that it doesn’t intend to place a Freemason in the papacy, but to gain control of everything around the Pope and elect a Pope who is sympathetic to their doctrines.

St. Maximilian Kolbe expounded on this plan at the founding of the Militia of the Immaculate.  On October 16, just three days after the miracle of Fatima, the Saint wrote:

“These men without God find themselves in a tragic situation.  Such implacable hatred for the Church and the ambassadors of Christ on Earth is not in the power of individual persons,  but of a systematic activity,  stemming in the final analysis from Freemasonry.”

In particular, it aims to destroy the Catholic religion. Their decrees have been spread throughout the world in different disguises but with the same goal.  That being religious indifference and weakening of moral forces.  

Their basic principle:  ‘We will conquer the Catholic  Church not by argumentation, but rather with moral corruption.’

According to the ‘ Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita,   a Masonic Blueprint for the subversion of the Catholic Church’ by John Vennari,  “We do not intend to win the Popes to our cause, to make them neophytes of our principles, propagators of our ideas.  That would be a ridiculous dream . Should Cardinals or prelates, for example, of their own free will or by surprise,  (or by our invitation)   enter into a part of our secrets, this is not at all an incentive for desiring their elevation to the see of Peter.  This elevation would ruin us.  Ambition alone would have led them to apostasy.

What we must look for and wait for, as the Jews wait for the Messiah, is a Pope according to our needs.

With that we shall march more securely towards the assault on the Church than with the pamphlets of our brethren in France”  (which encouraged the bloody French Revolution and changed the direction of governments for the world. )

“Do you want to know the reason for this?  It is that with this, in order to shatter the high rock on which God built his Church, we no longer need Hannibalian vinegar, or gunpowder, or even arms.

We have the little finger of the Successor of Peter engaged in the ploy, and this little finger is as good, for this crusade, as all the Urban IIs and all the St. Bernards of Christendom.

Now then, to assure ourselves of a Pope of the required dimensions,  it is a question first of shaping for this Pope a generation worthy of the reign we are dreaming of. Leave old people and those of mature age aside;  go to the youth, and if it is possible, even to the children.”

This was written over 100 years ago.  This is not the musing of some aluminum-foil wearing conspiracy blog.

To the members of the lodges the Alta Vendita says later:  “You will contrive for yourselves, at little cost, a reputation as good Catholics and pure patriots.  This reputation will put access to our doctrines into the midst of the young clergy, as well as deeply into the monasteries.  In a few years by the force of things, this young clergy will have over run all functions.  They  (who will then be Cardinals)  will be called to choose a Pontiff who should reign.  This Pontiff, like most of his contemporaries, will be imbued with Italian and humanitarian principles that we are going to begin to put into circulation”

In short, the Alta Vendita is saying that it doesn’t intend to place a Freemason in the papacy, but to gain control of everything around the Pope and elect one sympathetic to masonic doctrine.

Even if one wishes to dismiss the historical secret plan to destroy the Church from within, current events are a lot harder to deny.

Marco Tosatti, an Italian journalist, reported on October 1, 2015 that a secret “task force” was working on a possible post synodal document allowing Holy Communion for divorced and remarried, cohabiting and same-sex couples.

This news came on the heels of an explosive claim by Cardinal Danneels, one of the appointed papal delegates to the Synod, that he had participated in a “mafia” to actively oppose Pope Benedict, push for his resignation, and elect Pope Francis.  He included in his biography Cardinals Carlo Maria Martini  and Achille Silvestrini from Italy, Walter Kasper and Karl Lehmann from Germany, and Dutch Cardinal Adriaan van Luyn as well as Basil Hume from England as members of his “mafia”

In 2013, Cardinal Danneels applauded same sex civil unions. In addition to admitting to participation in a cabal within the church, and, promoting homosexuality, Cardinal Danneels actively participated in a Masonic meeting dressed in Masonic regalia in 2008. He admitted to dressing in the ritualistic white garb of Freemasonry in order to deliver a lecture at the Masonic Temple in Belgium.

In 1738,  Pope Clement XII expressly announced the automatic excommunication for any Catholic having association with Freemasons.  ( Did he sense the coming French Revolution, along with recognizing pure evil? )

The black serpent of Freemasonry has clearly found willing allies among the Curia, and, has worked for over 100 years to wrap its coils through the halls of the Vatican.  Cardinal Danneels and Archbishop Pontier are just two that we know of.  How many other secret Masons or fellow travelers have joined their plot to ruin the Church through  the corruption of morals?

This chaos is nothing but the shivering of a dragon who knows well that its time is short.

“The Rosary solves all Problems”























American Apparition of Our Lady Approved – Champion, WI

Most Rev. David Laurin Ricken, D.D., J.C.L By the Grace of God and the Authority of the Apostolic See Bishop of Green Bay

Decree on the Authenticity of the Apparitions of 1859 At the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help Diocese of Green Bay

“For over one hundred fifty-one years, a continuous flow of the faithful has come to Champion, Wisconsin to pray, to seek solace and comfort in times of trouble and to petition Our Lord Jesus Christ through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Good Help.

Incessant prayer has gone up in this place based upon the word of a young Belgian immigrant woman, Adele Brise, who in October 1859 said that the Blessed Mother, a Lady clothed in dazzling white, had appeared to her on this site.

The Lady was elevated slightly in a bright light and gave words of solace and comfort and a bold and challenging mission for the young immigrant woman. The Lady gave her a two-fold mission of prayer for the conversion of sinners and of catachesis.

‘I am the Queen of Heaven who prays for the conversion of sinners, and I wish you to do the same. You received Holy Communion this morning and that is well. But you must do more. Make a general confession and offer Communion for the conversion of sinners.

Gather the children in this wild country and teach them what they should know for salvation. Teach them their Catechism, how to sign themselves with the sign of the Cross, and, how to approach the Sacraments. That is what I wish you to do. Go and fear nothing, I will help you.’

Adele Brise began immediately to fulfill the mandate and mission entrusted to her by the Lady and often times, at great personal sacrifice, went to the homes of the children to instruct them in the largely unsettled and forested area in Wisconsin. Adele was ever obedient to the authorities of the Church and steadfast in the mission entrusted to her by Our Lady, no matter what difficulty she encountered.

The mission given her became such a commitment that she set up a Catholic school of instruction for children and even began a community of Third Order Franciscan women, who assisted her in her obedience to the mandate of Our Lady to pray for the conversion of sinners and to instruct the children.

A long tradition of oral and some documented sources recounting answered prayers at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help include conversions and many physical healings attributed to Our Blessed Mother’s intercession. Many physical healings are memorialized by the multitude of crutches and other mementos of thanksgiving for answered prayers left at the Shrine. Prayers for physical healing are answered even to this day through the intercession of Our Lady of Good Help. Though none of these favors have been officially declared a miracle by the Church, they are clear evidence of spiritual fruitfulness in the history of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Shrine.

Graces have been poured out through the sacraments celebrated in this place especially through the celebration of the Mass and the Sacrament of Reconciliation, as well as through the recitation of public devotions and private prayers.

Our Lady has lessened or relieved the burdens of the People of God, whether about financial, familial, relationship, or, employment matters … or even through diminishing inclement and tempestuous weather.

This holy place was preserved from the infamous Peshtigo fire of 1871, when many of the faithful gathered here with Adele and prayed through the intercession of Our Lady of Good Help, with the result that the fire that devastated everything in its wake in this entire area stopped when it reached the parameters of the Shrine.”
The Peshtigo Fire
The Peshtigo Fire occurred on the same day as the great Chicago
fire. It is not as well know only due to lack of communications
of the times. It was the largest and deadliest fire in Americas

It burned from southwest to northeast up both sides
of the Bay. It was a wildfire of immense proportions with
hurricane winds and temperatures of 2000 degrees. Some
historians say there were ‘tornadoes of fire.’ Farm Houses are
reported to have blown up. The smoke, the fire, the poisoned
air and the flying debris destroyed 1000 acres and killed 2,500
people. A dozen communities were incinerated.

The Chapel of Our Lady of Good Help was spared. As the fire bore
down upon them, the Sisters were praying the Rosary. Many families
had fled to the shrine which was encircled by a wooden fence. They
walked around the little chapel carrying a statue of Mary on high.
They prayed through the night, and, as the flames approached them,
dropping hot cinders and sparks in its advancing path, carried by
the driving winds, everything stopped. Right at the fence.
In the morning, they found farm animals inside the fence. Pieces
of the charred fence can be seen today at Our Lady of Good Help
Shrine museum in Champion. Editor

“There is clear testimony to the upright character of Adele Brise, her devotion to Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary, and her unwavering commitment to the mission Mary entrusted to her. Moreover, the uninterrupted history of faith and devotion testifies to the spiritual fruits bestowed upon the pilgrims to the Shrine.

Three Marian experts have studied the history of this alleged apparition and all of the extant documents, letters, and written testimonies in order to determine whether or not there are inherent contradictions or objections to the veracity of the testimony given by Adele Brise with regard to the events of 1959 and to establish whether or not there is enough evidence to suggest that the events which happened to Adele Brise may be of a supernatural origin.

The accounts of the apparitions and locutions are judged to be free from doctrinal error and consistent with the Catholic faith.

There is nothing in the person and character of Adele Brise that would question the veracity of the substance of her account. In fact, her personal character is a major factor in favor of the recognition of the apparition.

Objections concerning whether there was enough evidence to support a judgment in favor of the supernatural character of the events were thoroughly investigated and answered by the experts. The documents from the early history of the Shrine are not abundant, due primarily to the fact that Green Bay at the time of the apparition was frontier country. One of the experts affirmed that any lack of information does “not invalidate the overall impression of coherence between event and consequences, personality of the seer and commitment to the mission received, the comparability between this even and similar recognized apparitions and challenges of the historical context and responses given.”

These simple apparitions and locutions given to Adele Brise became such a compelling theological and religious mission for her. The effects of these endeavors by her and many others have lasted these many years with such major spiritual benefit to so any people

Many of the local clergy and clergy from other Dioceses and Religious Institutes have come here on pilgrimage with their people, also with spiritual benefit.

All of my esteemed predecessor Bishops of the Diocese of Green Bay for the past one hundred and fifty one years have been present for special Masses in Honor of Our Lady of Good Help, and some of them have even been present for special Mass in honor of Our Lady of Good Help, and some of them have even actively promoted the Shrine.


It remains to me now, the Twelfth Bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay and the lowliest of the servants of Mary, to declare with moral certainty and in accord with the norms of the Church:


I encourage the faithful to frequent this holy place as a place of solace and answered prayer.

Give at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, Champion, Wisconsin, the eighth day of December in the year of Our Lord two thousand and ten, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Place in the History of Salvation of the False Prophet: His Character

From the Book of Destiny  From The Apocalypse as explained by Rev. Herman Bernard Kramer

“In the vision of the Seer, St. John the Apostle on the island of Patmos, now appears a second beast rising out of the earth, having two horns like a lamb but speaking like a dragon. This beast is the prophet of Antichrist. In other places he is called the “False Prophet”.  The word ‘beast’ is the word chosen by St. John for what he sees in his vision.

Antichrist will have a forerunner or prophet, who will prepare the way for him. It will undoubtedly be someone who has done great work of evil in the world so as to be especially fitted for the position.

Many may have developed so evil a character as to be fit for such a job, but this one who will be the False Prophet, may be at the head of a strong world power.  Choosing him will be the work of Antichrist himself after he has made his own pact with Satan. Antichrist will be a man. He will choose his false prophet after he has become possessed by the devil.

This prophet may re-establish the pagan Roman Empire and build the “Great Harlot” Babylon. He comes out of the earth, which is the term for the Gentile nations from which he springs.

In the vision of St. John,  he has two horns; He may have two world powers subject to himself, but the added phrase in the verse, two horns like a lamb seems to intimate that he is an apostate bishop or cardinal, or he resembles one.

The Church, after having fled from Rome after the murder of the Pope (?who) leaves the Papal chair vacant. (John Paul I was murdered … There are whispers that Pius XII was also murdered.)  We don’t know but we have an inkling that we are in this time. We are grateful for the words of the Apocalypse.

This false prophet possibly at the behest of Antichrist usurps the papal supremacy and proposes himself as emperor of Rome. His assumed spiritual authority and supremacy over the Church would make him resemble the Bishop of Rome and his temporal regency over the re-established empire would make him emperor of Rome. He would be Pontifex Maximus, a title of pagan Roman emperors, having supreme spiritual and temporal authority. Assuming authority without possessing it makes him the False Prophet. Does this allude to what our Lord said?

Though he poses as a lamb, a Christian, his doctrines betray him for he preaches the doctrines of the dragon.  

His preaching may be Communism or idolatrous paganism; it will comprise emperor worship and devil worship coupled with persecution of true believers. They will know him at once as an imposter and will not be misled.

He will be in league with the antichristian world powers and adopt their principles of government and civil law. As spiritual head of the empire, he may declare it treason or against the state to accept Christianity or the moral law of God.
