Remembering the 1975 Rome Prophecies (Catholic Caucus)
Da Mihi Animas ^ | Padre Steve

Posted on 11/09/2013 1:12:11 PM PST by RBStealth

On Pentecost Monday 1975 a prophecy was given by Ralph Martin in St Peter’s Basilica, Rome, in the presence of Pope Paul VI.

The Prophecies were given during the Closing Eucharistic Celebrations (Pentecost Monday 1975) of the International Conference of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. This is for your discernment, but it seems like a powerful one to me.

Here are the prophecies:

"Because I love you I want to show you what I am doing in the world today. I want to prepare you for what is to come. Days of darkness are coming on the world, days of tribulation… Buildings that are now standing will not be standing. Supports that are there for my people will not be there. I want you to be prepared, My people, to know only me and to cleave to me and to have me in a way deeper than ever before. I will lead you into the desert…. I will strip you of everything that you are depending on now, so you depend just on me. A time of darkness is coming on the world, but a time of glory is coming for my church, a time of glory is coming for my people. I will pour out on you all the gifts of My Spirit. I will prepare you for spiritual combat; I will prepare you for a time of evangelism that the world has never seen. And when you have nothing but Me, you will have everything: land, fields, homes and brothers and sisters and love and joy and peace more than ever before. Be ready, my people, I want to prepare you…"

"I speak to you of the dawn of a 'new age' for My church. I speak to you of a day that has not been seen before...Prepare yourselves for the action that I begin now, because things that you see around you will change; the combat that you must enter now is different; it is new. You need wisdom from Me that you do not yet have."

"You need the power of my Holy Spirit in a way that you have not possessed it; you need an understanding of My will and of the ways that I work that you do not yet have. Open your eyes, open your hearts to prepare yourselves for Me and for the day that I have now begun. My church will be different; My people will be different; difficulties and trials will come upon you. The comfort that you know now will be far from you, but the comfort that you will have is the comfort of My Holy Spirit. They will send for you, to take your life, but I will support you. Come to Me. Band yourselves together, around Me. Prepare, for I proclaim a new day, a day of victory and of triumph for your God. Behold, It is begun."

"...I will renew my Church. I will renew my people. I will make My people one. I am calling you to turn away from the pleasure of the world. I am calling you to turn away from seeking the approval of the world in your lives. I want to transform your lives...I have word for My church. I am sounding My call. I am forming a mighty army...My power is upon them. They will follow My chosen shepherd(s)..."

"Be the shepherds I have called you to be...I am renewing My church. I will free the world."

"Know that I, your God, brought Peter and Paul to Rome to witness to My glory. I have chosen you also and have brought you to Rome to bear witness to My glory, confirmed now by your shepherd. Go forth to the healing of the nations. Know that I am with you; and though you may pass through tribulation and trial, I will be with you even to the end. I am preparing a place for you in glory. Look to Me and I will deliver you from the power of the evil one. Behold I am with you now, all days, even till the end of time.

"...You have know the truth these days. You have experienced the truth these days. It is clear to you at this moment what the truth is. It is the truth of My kingdom, My kingdom that will prevail...I want you to take that truth, to rest in that truth, to believe in that truth, not to compromise it, not to lose it in confusions, not to be timid about it, but to stand simply, in love, firmly rooted in the truth as foundation stones upon which My church can have new life and new power."

We are entering those days now. I really do pray that the Holy Spirit can prepare us for what is coming.

Martin, as all “Catholic” “Charismatics”, is a heretic. Among other things he called “The Gospa” of Medjugorge (you spell it) his “spiritual director”. That vision is of the devil.
Renewal Ministries is rife with heretics, apostates.

So are you saying that there are no such things as the charismatic gifts of the the Holy Spirit?

That time of darkness arrived with a bang on the morning of September 11, 2001. It is on that day and since where evil has taken a strangle hold on many people’s minds and hearts. The recent is just the external visibility of what exploded upon our world that morning. It has always been here but on that that it began its gathering. Also Roe v Wade began global murder on a scale that is pure evil. That proceeded Sept. 11 but changed everything.

Yes, indeed. Thank Notre Dame (the university) for the oxymoronic “charismatic theology.”

From FishEaters -- a very conservative Catholic site

The 7 Gifts of the Holy Ghost
Wisdom
Understanding
Counsel
Fortitude
Knowledge
Piety
Fear of the Lord

Note:
See Isaias 11:1-3

Class of Gifts of the Holy Ghost known as Charismata

Gift of speaking with wisdom
Gift of speaking with knowledge
Faith
Grace of healing
Gift of miracles
Gift of prophecy
Gift of discerning spirits
Gift of tongues (i.e., xenolalia, the ability to speak foreign languages unknown by natural reason)
Gift of interpreting speeches

Note:
See I Corinthians 12:6-11; I Corinthians 12:28-31; and Romans 12:6-8. The number of items in this class of Gifts of the Holy Ghost, properly called "charismata," is disputed among theologians. Some add: Gift of government, Gift of Helps, Gift of distributio, Gift of misericordia. The charismata were/are not necessary for individual sanctification, were/are not distributed to all Christians, and are to be subjected to authority and the proper ends for which they were given (I Corinthians 12-14).


The 12 Fruits of the Holy Ghost
Charity
Joy
Peace
Patience
Benignity
Goodness
Longanimity
Mildness
Faith
Modesty
Continency
Chastity

Note:
See Galatians 5:22-25 (three of these are not mentioned in some Greek and Latin manuscripts). The 12 Fruits of the Holy Ghost are the effects of the 7 Gifts of the Holy Ghost.

What, pray, do the “charismatic” gifts of the Holy Spirit have to do with this? The CHARISMATIC gifts of the Holy Spirit are reserved for THE (one, holy, catholic, and apostolic) Church, not the (or any) individual. The gifts of the Holy Spirit to individuals are: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. No prophecy promised.

Just proving that there are charismatic gifts. Is that some kind of a sin in your eyes?

What are your thoughts on Medjagoogoo? Are the “miracles” and “prophesies” there “charismatic” gifts from the Holy Ghost?

Of course not. But it’s important to remember to whom (or to what) that specific gift is promised. Several saints and doctors of the church, never mind popes, have clearly stated that DIVINE revelation ended with the evangelists. Prophecies, to me anyway, signify a revelation of sorts and must be sorted out by the bishops in communion with the pope. There are no new criers in the desert, and we need nothing more than our forebears needed for salvation. The default reaction to unsanctioned “charismatic” revelations, therefore, must be cynical. If not, we’re not only denying the authority of Rome and the bishops (not just now but in the past as well) to proclaim truth; but we’re also opening ourselves up to competing and never-ending “charisms.”

Actually you dont know your Catholic terminology very well its very confused. Why dont you brush up? Read up on these things first, thoroughly, instead of trying to explain or teach them to others.

"Because I love you I want to show you what I am doing in the world today. I want to Prepare you for What is to Come. Days of Darkness are Coming on the World, days of tribulation… ...................... A Time of Darkness is Coming on the world, but a Time of Glory is Coming for My Church, a time of glory is coming for my people. I will pour out on you all the gifts of My Spirit. I will prepare you for spiritual combat; I will prepare you for a time of evangelism that the world has never seen.

You need wisdom from Me that you do not yet have."

I believe the Darkness is this Rehashed Neo-paganistic influence from many corners of the World especially people who believe in occultic practices which have increased since "Fantasy" like Books of Harry Potter which really is showing Kids who want to take out the occult factor and practice it.

I also see as driving more and more "Psychic Reading" signs on a main roads than I have ever seen before in my life. We have to live in Christ from the core of our Being.

Anima Christi - Soul of Christ Soul of Christ, sanctify me.

Body of Christ, save me.

Blood of Christ, inebriate me.

Water from the side of Christ, wash me.

Passion of Christ, strengthen me.

O Good Jesus, hear me.

Within Thy wounds, hide me.

Suffer me not to be separated from Thee.

From the malignant enemy, defend me.

In the hour of my death, call me.

And bid me come to Thee, that with Thy saints I may praise Thee for ever and ever. Amen.
