Cotonou (Benin) – 7 October 2023

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary

Dear sisters and brothers in Jesus and Mary, 

As we know, since 2016, our Church has been going through a time of great moral and doctrinal confusion. Despite all the filial corrections made to Pope Francis, he has made no rectification of the errors that are the cause of this confusion. What should we do in the face of this situation? We remember the words of Jesus Our Lord: “if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father” (Matthew 18:19). During this month of October, all the children of Jesus and Mary are invited to live unity in prayer, through the recitation of the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We will pray especially for Pope Francis, Cardinal Walter Kasper, the Society of Jesus, our brothers and sisters who publicly contradict the traditional teaching of the Church, for the enemies of the Church, and for our brothers and sisters who fully accept the traditional teaching of the Church. 

A. Why pray for Pope Francis, Cardinal Kasper, the Society of Jesus, and our brothers and sisters who publicly contradict traditional Church teaching?

Pope Francis is the president of the Synod on Synodality, whose general assemblies in October 2023 and 2024 risk radically changing the traditional teaching of the Catholic Church (cf. my open letter of 15 August 2023): disappearance of the law of celibacy for candidates to the priesthood, marriage of priests, ordination of women to the priesthood, relativism, situation ethics, primacy of individual conscience over divine law, abortion, contraception, euthanasia, “blessing” of homosexual couples, elimination of the text of the Catechism of the Catholic Church defining homosexual acts as intrinsically disordered, etc. For those who usually listen to the Virgin Mary, all this is not surprising. Let’s turn our attention to Our Lady of Anguera (Brazil). Obviously, we are waiting and hoping for the Church authorities to confirm the authenticity of the apparitions, as was the case for Our Lady of La Salette, Our Lady of Lourdes, and Our Lady of Fatima. But it is interesting to note that Anguera’s messages do not contradict traditional Church teaching; on the contrary, they reinforce it. Several of the messages concern Pope St. John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, Pope Francis, Cardinal Kasper, and the Jesuits. 

For example, in the case of John Paul II, Our Lady of Anguera said: “My Church is divided internally and in danger of losing the true faith. Many errors are being spread, and the real culprits are the pastors who do not obey the Vicar of my Son, Pope John Paul II. Many bishops, priests and religious are concerned solely and exclusively with social problems. They forget that Jesus died on the Cross and rose again to give us the great gift of redemption and to save souls. In this way, the teaching of liberation theology is spreading more and more, leading countless of my children down the road to perdition” (115, 17 December 1988). A few days after Benedict XVI announced his resignation from the Petrine ministry (11 February 2013), the Virgin Mary said: “Now the first steps towards Calvary begin … Love and defend the truth” (3.776, 13 February 2013); “Behold, the times foretold by me have arrived. You are heading for a future of great trials. It is a time of great spiritual confusion. Stand firm in your faith. My Jesus is with you … True men and women of faith will bear a heavy cross and know the anguish of a condemned man” (3.780, 23 February 2013).

The following messages are negative and, according to several analysts, apply to Pope Francis: “Vengeance will come on the throne of Peter” (2.600, 10 November 2005); “The day will come when a man of fine appearances will appear and with his false ideology will succeed in deceiving many people, even consecrated persons will be seduced” (2.700, 29 June 2006); “He who could be Peter will become Judas. He will open the doors to the enemies and make men and women of faith suffer” (3.046, 29 August 2008); “The day will come when there will be two thrones, but on only one will the true successor of Peter be found. It will be a time of great spiritual confusion for the Church. Stay with the truth. Listen to what I tell you and stand firm in the faith” (3.098, 23 December 2008); “The day will come when a man who looks good and just will appear. He will deceive many people, for he will perform great wonders. He will come from the southern hemisphere and many will see him as a saviour. Be on your guard not to be deceived” (3.276, 6 February 2010); “You are living in a time of great spiritual confusion. When a man appears with three names, there will be great confusion in the House of God. Pray, pray, pray” (3.452, 14 March 2011); “Dangerous birds will bring the seed of evil, but in the Lord’s vineyard only the seed of truth will germinate” (3.789, 12 March 2013); “The poison is in the tree, not in the fruit” (3.790, 16 March 2013); “Dear children, the poison is in the tree, not in the fruit” (5.260, 24 March 2022); “Peter is not Peter; Peter will not be Peter. You cannot understand what I am telling you now, but all will be revealed to you” (5.304, 29 June 2022).
