Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?
Our Lady of Good Success: Pray for the "Prisoner" Pope ...
The former editor at Investor's Business Daily and present Senior
Editor of The Stream John Zmirak said Pope Benedict XVI is "almost a prisoner in
the Vatican... he is not a free agent":
"He is almost a prisoner in the Vatican... Benedict co-wrote a book with Cardinal Sarah defending celibacy... enormous pressure was put on Pope Benedict who is almost living as a prisoner of Pope Francis. He can't leave... What this shows me is Pope Benedict is not a free agent. He is not able to do what he wants."
"I really think the Italian police should remove him from the Vatican and make sure he wants to still be there. I don't think he is there of his own free will. And I wonder if he resigned of his own free will?"
(The Eric Ketaxas Radio Show on YouTube, Guest Journalist John Zmirak, 24:07- 25:34)
Moreover, the apparitions of Our Lady of Success that have been approved by the Catholic
Church said possibly the same thing. Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles
associated with it.
Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition" which the influential and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict:
"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."
(The Story of Our Lady of Good Success and Novena, Dolorosa Press, Pages 40-41)
Our Lady of Good Success, who appeared in Ecuador 400 years ago, made the following prophecies:
There would be a worldwide crisis of faith and morals in the 20th century that will continue into our time which will be the "greatest crisis of the Church" when "evil will seem to triumph," then God will sent a "prelate" and Our Lady to restore the Church and defeat "Satan":
"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... "
"... [I]n that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated today speak in due time will remain silent."
(The Story of Our Lady of Good Success and Novena, Pages 40-41)
"Then the Church will suffer the dark night from lack of a prelate... "
"Pray with insistence, cry out without tiring and weep with bitter tears in the secret recess of your heart, begging our Heavenly Father, for the love of the Eucharistic Heart of my beloved Son, for the Most Precious Blood poured out with such generosity and for the deep grief and pain of His bitter Passion and death, to have pity on His ministers and put an end, as soon as possible, to such disastrous times, by sending to the Church the prelate who shall restore the spirit of his priests... "
".... The tepidity of all souls consecrated to God in the sacerdotal and religious state will impede having this prelate and father sooner... "
"... [E]vil will seem to triumph... "
"Then my hour shall arrive, in which I, in an astonishing manner, will destroy the proud and accursed Satan, placing him under my feet and burying him in the infernal abyss, while the Church and country finally shall be free of his cruel tyranny."
(Ibid., Pages 80-81)
Our Lady of Good Success is showing us what we need to do:
1. Pray for the "prisoner" pope who the evidence points to probably being Benedict XVI.
2. "Pray with insistence... begging the Heavenly Father" to send "the prelate," probably a bishop similar to St. Athanasius, to help to restore the Church.
3. Pray for all the priests, bishops and religious to end their "tepidity" or lukewarmness and to be on fire with adoration and love of God as well as on fire to save souls for the glory of God.
4. Finally, pray for the Heavenly Father to send the Mother of His Son Jesus Christ to "destroy... Satan... burying him in the infernal abyss."
Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
