A 17th century prophecy

Our Lady of Good Fortune
Quito Ecuador, February 2, 1634

Mother Mary Anne of Jesus Torres was praying in front of the Blessed Sacrament when suddenly the sanctuary light went out. While she was trying to relight it, a supernatural light filled the church.

"Beloved daughter of My heart, I am Our Lady of Good Fortune, your Mother and Protectress, carrying My Most Holy Son on My left arm and holding the sceptre in My right hand. I have come to tell you some good news: in ten months and ten days you will close your eyes to the earthly light of this world in order to open them to the brightness of light everlasting.

Oh, if only human beings and religious knew what Heaven is and what it is to possess God, how differently they would live, sparing no sacrifice in order to enter more fully in possession of it! But some let themselves be dazzled by the false glamour of honours and human greatness while others are blinded by self-love, not realizing that they are falling into lukewarmness, that immense evil which in religious houses destroys their fervor, humility, self-renunciation and the ceaseless practice of religious virtues and fraternal charity, and that child-like simplicity which makes souls so dear to My Divine Son and to Me, their Mother.

Then Our Lady of Good Fortune began to speak of the Order of the Immaculate Conception and in particular of the Convent of the Conception in Quito:

This house will be attacked with a fury out of hell to destroy and annihilate it, but Divine Providence and I will be watching over to preserve it, by favouring the virtues practiced by the nuns in this house. ... Know also, My beloved daughter, that My Motherly love will watch over the convents of the Order of My Immaculate Conception, because this Order will give Me great glory through the daughters I shall have here. I shall take special care of the convents formed in this land by the members of this House. Often they will be on the brink of annihilation, but miraculously they will come to life again. Only one will close, in conformity with God's will: you will know which, when you are in Heaven.

The sanctuary lamp burning in front of the Prisoner of Love, which you saw go out, has many meanings.

First meaning: at the end of the 19th century and for a large part of the 20th, various heresies will flourish on this earth which will have become a free republic. The precious light of the Faith will go out in souls because of the almost total moral corruption: in those times there will be great physical and moral calamities, in private and in public. The little number of souls keeping the Faith and practicing the virtues will undergo cruel and unspeakable sufferings; through their long drawn out martyrdom many will go to death because of the violence of their sufferings, and those will count as martyrs who gave their lives for Church and for country. To escape being enslaved by these heresies will call for great strength of will, constancy, courage and great trust in God, all of which are gifts from the merciful love of My Divine Son to those He will have chosen for the work of restoration. To put to the trial the faith and trust of these just souls, there will come moments when everything seems lost and paralyzed, and just then comes the happy beginnings of the complete restoration.

Second meaning: My communities will be abandoned; they will be swamped in a fathomless sea of bitterness, and will seem drowned in tribulations. How many true vocations will be lost for lack of skillful and prudent direction to form them! Each mistress of novices will need to be a souls of prayer, knowing how to discern spirits.

The third meaning of the lamps going out is that those times the air will be filled with the spirit of impurity which like a deluge of filth will flood the streets, squares and public places. The licentiousness will be such there will be no more virgin souls in the world.

A fourth meaning is that by having gained control of all the social classes, the sects will tend to penetrate with great skill into the heart of families and destroy even the children. The devil will glory in feeding perfidiously on the heart of children. The innocence of childhood will almost disappear. Thus priestly vocations will be lost, it will be a real disaster. Priests will abandon their sacred duties and will depart from the path marked out for them by God. Then the Church will go through a dark night for lack of a Prelate and Father to watch over it with love, gentleness, strength and prudence and numbers of priest will lost the spirit of God, thus placing their souls in great danger.

Pray constantly, cry out unwearingly and weep unceasingly with bitter tears in the depths of your heart, asking Our Father in Heaven, for love of the Eucharistic Heart of My Most Holy Son, for His Precious Blood, so generously shed and for the profound bitterness and sufferings of His Passion and death, that He have pity on His ministers and that He put an end to such fatal times, by sending to His Church the Prelate who will restore the spirit of His priests.

Upon this My beloved son, whom My Divine Son and I love with a predilection, we shall heap many gifts, of humility of heart, of docility to varying inspirations, of strength to defend the rights of the Church and of a heart with which he will, like anew Christ, take possession of the mightiest or men as of the lowliest, without scorning the least fortunate among them. With a wholly divine gentleness he will lead consecrated souls to the service of God in religious houses without making the Lord's yoke weigh heavily upon them. He will hold in his hand the scales of the sanctuary for everything to be done in an orderly fashion for God to be glorified. This Prelate and Father will act as a counterweight to the lukewarmness of souls consecrated in the priesthood and in religion.

Satan will gain control of this earth through the fault of faithless men who, like a black cloud, will darken the clear sky of the republic consecrated of the Most Sacred Heart of My Divine Son. This republic, having allowed entry to all the vices, will have to undergo all sorts of chastisements, plague, famine, war, apostasy and the loss of souls without number.

And to scatter these black clouds blocking the brilliant dawning of the freedom of the Church, there will be a terrible war in which the blood of priests and of religious will flow ... That night will be so horrible that the wickedness will seem triumphant. Then will come My time: in astounding fashion I shall destroy Satan's pride, casting him beneath My feet, chaining him up in the depths of hell, leaving Church and country freed at last from his cruel tyranny.

The fifth meaning of the lamp's going out is that men possessing great wealth will look on with indifference while the Church is oppressed, virtue is persecuted, and evil triumphs. They will not use their wealth to fight evil and re-construct the Faith. The people will come to care nothing for the things of God, will absorb the spirit of evil and will let themselves be swept away by all vices and passions. Ah, My beloved daughter, were it given you to live in these fatal times, you would die of grief seeing everything I have told you come about. My Most Holy Son and I have such a great love for this earth, our property, that it is our wish as of now to apply your sacrifice and good works to the lessening of the duration of such terrible catastrophes."

Divine Will - Jerusalem and Rome

Jesus told the servant of God Luisa Piccarreta on October 3 1928 the mystery of the uniting of the Jews and Catholics: "...if Rome had the primacy of my Church, she owes it to Jerusalem, because the beginning of Redemption was precisely in Jerusalem. In that homeland, from the little town of Nazareth I chose my Virgin Mother; I Myself was born in the little town of Bethlehem, and all my Apostles were from that homeland. And eventhough, ungrateful, she did not want to recognise Me and rejected the goods of my Redemption, it cannot be denied that the origin, the beginning, the first people who received the good of it [the Redemption]were from this city [Jerusalem]. The first criers of the Gospel, those who established Catholicism in Rome, were my Apostles, all from Jerusalem - that is from this homeland.

"Now there will be an exchange: if Jerusalem gave to Rome the life of religion and therefore of Redemption, Rome will give to Jerusalem the Kingdom of the Divine Will. This is so true, that just as I chose a Virgin from the little town of Nazareth for the Redemption, so I have chosen another virgin [Luisa Piccarreta] in a little town [Corato]belonging to Rome, to whom the mission of the Kingdom of the Divine Fiat has been entrusted. And since this must be known in Rome just as my coming upon earth was known in Jerusalem, Rome will have the great honour of requiting Jerusalem for the great gift received from her, which is the Redemption, by making known to her the Kindgdom of my Will. Then will Jerusalem repent of her ingratitude, and will embrace the life of the religion which she gave to Rome; and, grateful, she will receive from Rome the life and the great gift of the Kingdom of my Divine Will. And not only Jerusalem, but all the other nations will receive the great gift of the Kingdom of My Fiat, the first criers of It, Its gospel - all full of peace, of happiness and of the restoration of the creation of man. And not only will my manifestations bring sanctity, joys, peace and happiness, but the whole of Creation, competing with them, will unleash from each created thing each of the happinesses it contains, and will pour them upon creatures..."

St John Bosco states that the Jews (Chair of Moses) will become more open to the Catholic truths at a time when Rome and the Pope and the priests loyal to him are under severe persecution by their fellow Christians. "...But you, O Italy, land of blessings, who has plunged you into desolation? Not your enemies, but your own friends. Do you not hear your children begging for the bread of faith, unable to find one to break it for them? What shall I do? I shall strike the shepherds [the Clergy of the Church] and scatter the sheep [the Catholics] so that those who sit upon the chair of Moses [the Rabbis of Judaism] may seek better pastures and their flock [the Jewish people] may gently listen and be fed. But My hand shall be heavy upon both flock and shepherds [Catholic Clergy and People] . Famine, plague, and war shall cause mothers to mourn the blood of their sons and husbands shed on foreign soil. What shall befall you, ungrateful, effeminate, proud Rome? You have reached a point when you seek and admire nought in your sovereign but luxury, forgetting that both your glory and his lies on Golgotha..."

Jesus tells Luisa a number of times that this great persecution of the Catholic Church comes because of the corruption of the priests and the Catholic institutions that have departed from the teaching of the Pope and of Jesus. But in the end Jesus will rebuilt his Church through the humble messengers of the Divine Will led by the Roman Pope (who may also be a Jew) and reunited with Judaism.

The Venerable Father Bartholomew Holzhauser (1613-1658) speaks of this transition period between the fifth era of the Church [Sardis) and the sixth era (Philadelphia). He speaks of the role of the Jews in this transition period. "[After a world war] will come a new period, in which two mighty ones will face each other [Islamists and the West]. The wrangle between these two will begin in the second half of the twentieth century. It will overthrow mountains and silt up rivers. A great change will come to pass, such as no mortal man will have expected; Heaven and Hell will confront each other in this struggle, old states will perish and light and darkness will be pitted against each other with swords, but it will be swords of a different fashion. With these swords it will be possible to cut up the skies and split the earth. A great lament will come over all mankind and only a small batch will survive the storm, the pestilence and the horror. And neither of the two adversaries will conquer nor be vanquished. Both mighty ones will lie on the ground, and a new mankind will come into existence. God possesses the key to everything. Blessed is he who will then be able to praise him, having obeyed all his commandments. And the great monarch of the world will create new laws for the new mankind and will cause a new age to begin, in which there will be only one flock and one shepherd, and peace will be of long, long duration, for the glory of God in heaven and on earth...

"When everything has been ruined by war; when Catholics are hard pressed by traitorous co-religionists and heretics; when the Church and her servants are denied their rights, the monarchies have been abolished and their rulers murdered... Then the Hand of Almighty God will work a marvelous change, something apparently impossible according to human understanding. There will rise a valiant monarch anointed by God. He will be a Catholic, a descendant of Louis IX, yet a descendant of an ancient imperial German family, born in exile. He will rule supreme in temporal matters. The Pope will rule supreme in spiritual matters at the same time. Persecution will cease and justice shall rule. Religion seems to be suppressed, but by the changes of entire kingdoms it will be made more firm.

"He will root out false doctrines and destroy the rule of Moslemism. His dominion will extend from the East to the West. All nations will adore God their Lord according to the Catholic teaching. There will be many wise and just men. The people will love justice, and peace will reign over the whole earth, for divine power will bind Satan for many years until the coming of the Son of Perdition.

"The reign of the Great Ruler may be compared with that of Caesar Augustus who became Emperor after his victory over his enemies, thereby giving peace to the world, also with the reign of Constantine the Great, who was sent by God, after severe persecution, to deliver both the Church and State.

"On account of a terrible war Germany will wail, France will be the cause of all the woe, Germany will be terribly wounded, all will be impoverished. England shall suffer much. The King shall be killed.

"After desolation has reached its peak in England, peace will be restored and England will return to the Catholic faith with greater fervor than before.

"The Great Monarch will have the special help of God and be unconquerable.

"The Fifth Epoch of time dates from the reign of Charles V until the reign of the Great Monarch.

"The Sixth Age of the Spirit commences with the powerful Monarch and the Holy Pontiff... and will last until the appearance of the Antichrist. This will be an age of consolation in which God will console His Spirit of the affliction and the great tribulation of the preceding age. All the nations will be united in the Catholic faith. The sacerdocy will flower more than ever, and men will seek the kingdom of God in all solicitude.

"The Lord will give good pastors to the Church. Men will live in peace, each in his own field. They will be reconciled with the one God. They will live in the shadow of the powerful Monarch and of his successors.

"Many saints and doctors will flourish in the earth. Men will love reason and justice. Peace will reign in all the universe, because the divine power will bind Satan for many years, until the son of perdition will rave anew.

"The Sixth Epoch of the World, which commences with the emancipation of the people of Israel and the restoration of the Temple and of the city of Jerusalem, will endure until the advent of Jesus Christ.

"For likewise, in this epoch, the people of Israel will be consoled to a very high degree by the Lord, our God, who will deliver them from the captivity of Babylon. The kingdoms, the nations, and the people will submit to the Roman Empire, furiously vanquished by the very powerful and very illustrious monarch who will govern during fifty-six years, rendering the peace of the universe and reigning alone until the advent of Jesus Christ and even after him. Thus, in the Sixth Age, God will delight his Church with the greatest prosperity.

"For, although, in the Fifth Age, we saw everywhere the most deplorable calamities: whereas all is devastated by war; that the Church and its members are rendered tributaries; that the subjects are tormented and that all men conspire to erect republics: man himself will be so astonishingly changed by the hand of God, such that no one can imagine humanity. For the powerful monarch, who will come like an envoy of God, will destroy the republics thoroughly in climax; he will subdue all to his will and will employ his zeal in favor of the true Church of Christ. All the heresies will be relegated to hell. The empire of the Turks will be broken and this monarch will reign in the orient and in the occident. All the nations will come and adore the Lord their God in the true Catholic and Roman faith.

"Now the Great Monarch also will dominate over all the beasts of the earth, that is to say over the barbarian nations, over the rebellious peoples, over the heretic republics and over all men dominated by their evil passions.

"It is in that age that the relation of the sixth Spirit of the Lord will be known, that is to say the Spirit of Wisdom that God diffuses over all the surfaces of the globes in those times. For men will fear the Lord their God, they will observe the law and serve it with all their heart. The sciences will be multiplied and complete on the earth. The Holy Scriptures will be unanimously understood, without controversy and without the errors of heresies. Men will be enlightened, so much as in the natural sciences and in the celestial sciences.

"Finally, the Sixth Church, the Church of Philadelphia, is the type of this sixth age, for Philadelphia signifies friendship of brothers, and again guarding the heritage in union with the Lord. Now all these characters convene perfectly in the sixth age, in which they will have love, concord and perfect peace and in which the powerful Monarch will have to consider almost the entire world as his heritage. He will deliver up the earth, with the aid of the Lord his God from all his enemies, of ruin and of all evil."

This drawing (image 80) is from the lost manuscript of Nostradamus found in the Central Roman library in 1982 (others claim it was discovered in 1994). It shows the Pope after the Pope who flees into exile. This Pope is a Jewish Pope who is seen here sitting on the chair of Peter speaking with the young new generation of Jewish Rabbinic authorities who have entered the Church at the time near the beginning of the Era of Peace. Their dress is similar to the dress of Medieval Jewish leaders and philosophers.

This drawing (image 79) from the lost Nostradamus collection shows the Pope who is fleeing Rome at a time when the clergy are being persecuted and killed and Islamist warriors at the gates of Rome or alternatively some believe it shows the time of the false or Black Pope who seizes Rome after the true or white Pope flees Rome.

Image 77 shows Pope Benedict XVI with his Cross on fire and many turning their back on him and his teaching except for some poor humble women. Image 78 (not shown here)shows the Pope (Benedict) and Luisa Piccarreta holding the "Book of Heaven" with a small nun (Mother Teresa of Calcutta) holding the Pope's staff.

Image 76 shows Pope John Paul II and his ministry to all peoples. An angry religious has taken the Pope's cross and walking cane symbolising those religious who have sought power and control in the church to the detriment of the Pope the Church and the world.
