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.
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.
