I. REVOLUTION IN ROME
Prophecies about the Vatican from Pedro Regis, who has his Bishop’s recognition:
“The palace will be surprised by a furious and bloody invasion by men with big beards.” (May 31, 2005)
“Terrorists will come to the Vatican. The plaza will be filled with corpses. Humanity will see the evil action of the men with long beards.” (July 24, 2005)
“The men with big beards are preparing a terrible action against the palace of the king (Vatican).” (July 14, 2007)
“The union of the big bearded men with those of the red will cause great pain to humanity.” (October 27, 2007)
“A war will explode on Rome and there will be few survivors. He who is against Christ will bring suffering and sorrow to all Europe. The throne of Peter will be empty.” (January 5, 2008)
What is going on with Russia and Ukraine today? Where will it lead? What will become of Rome?
The following article is comprised of excerpts from the trilogy of books on Catholic prophecy by Dr. Kelly Bowring, which can be found at www.TwoHeartsPress.com.
Interestingly, Communist Russia (USSR) looked like it had a mortal wound in the 1990s when it collapsed. But, it was only wounded, and it is now rising again. The events to come have been foretold:
At the Church-approved apparition of Our Lady of La Salette, Mary spoke about two periods of apocalyptic war, that would be divided by a temporary period of peace. She said the temporary peace would last 25 years, as an interim in the context of the two series of cataclysmic events – it seems the two events are the two periods of Russian Communism. Our Lady of La Salette summarizes the stages of the events of the Apocalypse, saying:
FIRST PERIOD: The righteous will suffer greatly. Their prayers, their penances and their tears will rise up to Heaven and all of God’s people will beg for forgiveness and mercy and will plead for my help and intercession. And then Jesus Christ, in an act of His justice and His great mercy will command His angels to have all His enemies put to death. Suddenly, the persecutors of the Church of Jesus Christ and all those given over to sin will perish and the earth will become desert-like. And then peace will be made, and man will be reconciled with God. Jesus Christ will be served, worshiped, and glorified. Charity will flourish everywhere. The new kings will be the right arm of the holy Church, which will be strong, humble, pious, poor but fervent in the imitation of the virtues of Jesus Christ. The Gospel will be preached everywhere and mankind will make great progress in its faith, for there will be unity among the workers of Jesus Christ and man will live in fear of God.
TEMPORARY PEACE: This peace among men will be short-lived. Twenty-five years of plentiful harvests will make them forget that the sins of men are the cause of all the troubles on this earth.
SECOND PERIOD: A forerunner of the Antichrist, with his troops gathered from several nations, will fight against the true Christ, the only Savior of the world. He will shed much blood and will want to annihilate the worship of God to make himself be looked upon as a god…
This prophecy seems to prophesy the two periods of Russian Communism, as also confirmed by the Garabandal visionaries (see more on this below). The FIRST PERIOD ended beginning in 1989 with the fall of the Berlin Wall and was completed by 1991 with the fall of the USSR.
So, 25 years of temporary peace have ensued, as the La Salette prophecy indicated, which according to the prophecy will end thus in 2014-2016.
Then, will commence the SECOND PERIOD of the prophecy, when the ensuing wars will usher in the time of the antichrist.
And so will unfold the apocalyptic battle that has already begun. The La Salette prophecy continues, saying:
Lastly, hell will reign on earth…
The seasons will be changed… with horrible earthquakes which will cause to be engulfed mountains, cities..
Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist.
…and men will corrupt themselves more and more…
The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation [the Church will be eclipsed in this sense, that 1) one will not know which is the true pope; 2) for a time: the holy Sacrifice will cease to be offered in churches].
Interestingly, the visionaries of the reported apparitions of Garabandal said in 1965 that the coming apocalyptic events — 1) worldwide Warning of God’s mercy, 2) great Miracle (in Garabandal), and 3) Chastisement of God’s punishment — would come to pass “when Communism comes again.” They said:
In the Great Tribulation, there will be a “sudden and unexpected tribulation of Communism, led by Russia… Russia will rule the world… The Church will be on the point of perishing and will pass through a terrible trial, that of Communism… it will be very hard to practice religion… priests will have to go into hiding… the Pope will not be able to be in Rome either. He was being persecuted too… when Communism comes again, everything will happen (they said this in 1965, Communism initially fell in 1989, and today it is rising again)… These difficult events will take place before the Warning because the Warning itself will take place when the situation will be at its worst.”
Sr. Elena Aiello was declared Blessed on September 14, 2011, Feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross, by Pope Benedict XVI. Blessed Elena was a Mystic, Stigmatist, Victim Soul, Prophetess, and Foundress of the Minim Tertiaries of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. She died in the 1960s. Her prophecy includes the following:
Russia will march upon all the nations of Europe, particularly Italy, and will raise her flag over the Dome of St. Peter’s. Italy will be severely tried by a great revolution, and Rome will be purified in blood for its many sins, especially those of impurity! The flock is about to be dispersed and the Pope must suffer greatly!…
If the people do not recognize in these scourges the warnings of Divine Mercy, and do not return to God with truly Christian living, ANOTHER TERRIBLE WAR WILL COME FROM THE EAST TO THE WEST. RUSSIA WITH HER SECRET ARMIES WILL BATTLE AMERICA; WILL OVERRUN EUROPE…
Oh, what a horrible vision I see! A great revolution is going on in Rome! They are entering the Vatican. The Pope is all alone; he is praying. They are holding the Pope. They take him by force.
St. Maximilian Kolbe prophesied: “One day the flag of the Immaculate Virgin Mary will flutter over the Kremlin (Russia), but first the red flag will flutter over the Vatican.” In other words, Russia will convert BUT not before communism overtakes the Vatican, the seat of the Pope.
The Downfall of the European Union (Babylon)
The Beast like a Bear (Russia) will join with the Red Dragon (China) and pose a threat to ‘Babylon’ (European Union), and will overcome it to introduce communism.
The European Union is “Babylon the Great, the Mother of Prostitutes and Abominations of the Earth.” She has seven heads and ten horns (Revelation 17:3). In the case of this beast, Revelation states that the seven heads are seven hills (Rome has seven hills) and the ten horns are ten “kings” or political leaders. Thus, the European Union’s apocalyptic downfall is prophesied to take place at the hands of the beast with seven heads and ten horns (Russia and/or China). Both the Red Dragon (China) and the Beast like a bear (Russia) have seven heads and ten horns:
“And another sign appeared in heaven, behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.” Revelation 12:3
This is China.
“And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” Revelation 13:1
This is Russia.
The beast has 7 heads and 10 horns, just like the dragon has 7 heads and 10 horns. Thus, China and Russia will cause the downfall of Europe. While Europe (Babylon) claims to be a queen, she is widowed (Revelation 18:7). She is widowed because she has abandoned her spouse, the Church.
Our Lady reportedly said to Nancy Fowler of Conyers:
Do not trust Russia. I tell you, do not be fooled by false peace.
Do not think that communism is dead. I tell you, it is on the rise. As you have chosen to follow the master of deception, then so shall you be deceived.
Fire will fall from Heaven… Woe to this sinful generation. China, Russia and Korea will be involved in a major war.
Korea, China and Russia are a deadly trio.
America will be a slave state unless you return to Me and make reparation for your grievous crimes.
Recent Ukraine Apparitions and Prophecies
In the 1980s, Josyp Terelya reportedly received messages from the Virgin Mary in the Ukraine. He said he was shown a map of the country with flames across it. Mary said to him: “I see fire. The villages are burning. Water is burning. The very air is on fire. Everything is in flames. If people do not convert to Christ, there will be war. There will be a great conflagration.” He thought the events would begin to unfold by 2015.
Lucifer, according to Terelya, was “losing strength” and preparing, in his desperation, for “a great deception for all of God’s creation and especially for the people of God.”
Our Lady said: “Pray the rosary, teach your children to pray the rosary. It is powerful against the Anti-Christ…
You can achieve the destruction of all the arms that have been arrayed by the unbelieving nations through prayer and fasting, through the action of all people who have accepted Christ, saying this prayer: ‘O my God I am heartily sorry for having offended You and I confess all my sins’…
You have seen the godless East and West. The difference is that in the West godlessness is not officially recognized, but the goal of godlessness in the East and the West is the same. In order to save Russia and the whole world from godless hell, you must convert Russia to Christ the King… But the Kingdom of Christ the King shall establish itself through the reign of the Mother of God.”
Similarly, in 1987 Our Lady reportedly appeared to Marina Kizyn in Hrushiv, Ukraine. She said:
The times are coming, which have been foretold, as being those of the end times…
I shall protect you for the glory and the future of God’s kingdom on earth, which will last for a thousand years.
The Kingdom of Heaven and Earth is close at hand. It will come only through penance and the repentance of sin.
Ukrainians must become Apostles of Christ among the Russian peoples for if there is not a return to Christianity in Russia, there will be a Third World War.
Pray for Russia. Russia will be converted only when all Christians pray for her restoration. Pray for the unification of the churches in Russia. All Christians should repent and through purification from sin stop the godlessness in Russia from continuing to spread through the world… Until the West acknowledges its own guilt before the East, Russia will not be able to receive Christ the King.
Prayer and Hope
Let us pray to Our Lady of Fatima for the consecration and conversion of Russia. Pray, pray, pray. Prayer and penance will mitigate the evils at hand and call down God’s mercy. Pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, whom God has given us to be our safety in these times, and to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, placing our trust in Him. Constantly say the rosary. The rosary is the weapon against Satan. He fears the rosary. Say the rosary everyday.
According to Our Lady of Fatima, all will end well, as she says:
But in the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, which will be converted, and some time of peace will be granted to humanity.
For in the end, according to the prophecy of Bl. Anna Maria Taigi:
Whole nations will come back to the Church and the face of the earth will be renewed. Russia, England, and China will come into the (Catholic) Church.

II. DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM
Dire Prophecy Concerning Israel and the Middle East
Our Lady prophesied through Pedro Regis (who has his Bishop’s recognition):
“The City of Jerusalem will be destroyed, and when they go through the tribulation it will not be recognized. There will be only a great desert.”
“The land of the Savior (Israel) must suffer much, but when it feels defeat it will defend itself with weapons that spread fire in the sky…”
“Israel will live the anguish of one condemned because of the surprise by the men of terror.”
“The Middle East will tremble with a great atomic holocaust.”
“The earth will shake and tremble with great atomic holocaust. Iran will be devastated by Israel.”
The Buildup to the Fulfillment of Prophecy
Wars are breaking out all over the Middle East today! With accelerating escalation and becoming more and more widespread!
Syria in Civil War! The advance of the Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq! Proclaiming a caliphate!
Iran on the verge of a Nuclear Weapon! Israel the target!
Civil Unrest with Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt!
Al-Qaeda and Taliban jihad in Afghanistan and Pakistan – with its global consequences!
Hezbollah clashes in Lebanon!
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Hamas sparking conflict with Israel in Gaza!
Russia attacking Ukraine! China and Russia uniting! Russia supporting Middle East conflicts!
WHERE IS ALL THIS LEADING?
Are all the wars, being instigated deliberately in the Middle East today, soon to spread into Europe?
Is Israel the real target of the Muslim ‘Arab Spring’ and Middle East conflicts? Is the stage being set for the Battle of Armageddon?
Will the wars, which are unfolding now, especially in the Middle East, herald the final Great Battle, and lead to a World War, with the use of nuclear weapons, killing millions?
Soon, will global powers be involved in a war in Europe? Will the fallout of the banking system and the escalation of wars in the Middle East trigger this war? Will forces overcome Europe and introduce Communism? Will China gain a strong foothold as well? Will Russia send her secret armies to battle America, as prophecy forewarns?
Will the False Prophet deceive the world as a (false) saint from within the Church who will unite all the churches and religions of the world? Will he succeed as an imposter with his lies — in destroying the Sacraments, the Mass (and discarding the Real Presence), and the Bible? Will he and his minions dictate to all, the (false) truth of what, they say, are the teachings of God in today’s world? Will many be deceived into accepting this terrible lie and their instigating of the New One-World Religion (a front for satanic worship, worship of self, and the removal of sin by the introduction of laws that will be seen to endorse tolerance, like the blessing of same sex marriages)? Will faithful Christians who refuse to deviate from the True Word of God then become the target of their wrath and persecution?
Will this set the stage for the Man of Peace, with his (false) humility, goodness and loving humane exterior, who will appear as an extraordinary and compassionate military hero and political leader to orchestrate his rise through brokering the most ambitious (false) peace plan in the Middle East, as a (false) friend of Israel (while he will really begin to annihilate the Jews)??? Will this false messiah be accepted with ease by the world’s leaders, who has seemingly been able to miraculously unite Israel and Palestine in an alliance of peace? By his deceit, will he succeed in twisting the Truth? Will he spread atheism everywhere? Will many be led to willingly accept his mark, the Mark of the Beast? As head of the New World Religion (together with the False Prophet who prophecy says will head the shell of the Catholic Church on earth) with his seat in Rome and the New Babylon (the new financial power center he will set up in Europe to control populations and secretly contaminate the earth’s food supply), will he succeed in deceiving all God’s children on earth?
Will the False Prophet (false leader of the Catholic Church) and the Antichrist (false man of peace) work in unison, in order to bring about desolation upon the world, which will result after the abomination in the Catholic Church has been fulfilled?
The Two Witnesses
Are the Catholic Church (the remnant true Christian Church that will not enter into the great apostasy and schism with the false prophet) and Israel the “two witnesses” of the Book of Revelation? Who will be persecuted for representing God’s Word (Old and New) before the dictates of the antichrist? Who will both be so persecuted that they will seem to have died? Whose “corpses” will be ignored by the peoples of the world? But, who will ultimately rise again together (the Jews being converted) to form the New Heaven and Earth into the Era of Peace?
Will the world be blind to the real reason for the orchestrated wars in the Middle East and the subsequent staged (false) peace?
HOW WILL GOD RESPOND TO THESE TIMES?
Are the events and changes foretold in the Book of Revelation now about to take place, one after another, in the world?
How will God respond? Will His one Hand cast down chastisements against the wicked, while His other Hand lifts up His faithful under His protection and care?
When things are at their worst, will God intervene with a global divine Warning of Mercy and great Miracle of Love, as prophecy foretells?
Will the true Christians be more and more rejected, tormented, scourged and belittled, with public rejection and vicious slander spread about them, even from within the Church, for speaking the truth about these times? Will they suffer as Christ suffered His Passion and Crucifixion? Only then to experience His great Resurrection and Second Coming in glory? Is the New Era of Peace on the horizon, as prophecy foretells?
Our Lady says:
Do not be frightened because your faith and your prayers will help dilute the effects of war, genocide, famine, and apostasy. The faithful will be victorious.
Our Lady of America promises:
“If my warnings are taken seriously and enough of my children strive constantly and faithfully to renew and reform themselves in their inward and outward lives, then there will be no nuclear war.
What happens to the world depends upon those who live in it. There must be much more good than evil prevailing in order to prevent the holocaust that is so near approaching.
Yet I tell you, my daughter, even should such a destruction happen because there were not enough souls who took my warning seriously, there will remain a remnant, untouched by the chaos who, having been faithful in following me and spreading my warnings, will gradually inhabit the earth again with their dedicated and holy lives.”
