Somebody should tell Francisco. But would he listen? The brilliant (and perhaps intentional) irony of the Blessed Mother.

Fasten your safety belt... Rome is in for a major surprise in the next 5 years (sooner rather than later)

It seems GTV has another Self-Appointed Seer. While I'm (half) joking, I want to compliment you @Live Mike on making what is both a likely and perfectly crafted prediction.

When (in all probability ) it comes true as you meant it, you'll be able to crow just as loudly as I often do, "you heard it here first". Yet...ANY big surprise will allow you to STILL claim your prediction came true.

You should predict the future moar often. Really, no kidding around. GTV needs moar seers, so people can (hopefully) realize ANYONE can be a a "Medjugorge-style" seer or a visionary so long as they're careful enough to predict the probable while remaining sufficiently vauge enough to cover their bases.

You'll have fun while tacitly debunking the BS seers who shamelessly insult the Blessed Mother with their fraudulent "visions" and "messages".

GTV's "seers" are doing God's work by furthering the truth while parodying falsehood.

I'm not territorial, either. As the old-time con-men used to say, "there are so many suckers around here, we can both work the same street-corner." ;-)

@Ultraviolet Let me be clear - I'm no seer, I've received no visions, no dreams, no locutions and no angel has tapped me on the shoulder. My comment is based upon a possible connection between two pieces of Catholic Prophecy. I should have written, "Fasten your safety belt... Rome may be in for a major surprise in the next 5 years (sooner rather than later)." Please examine the following...

The Vision / Dream of Bruno Cornacchiola at dawn on February 10, 2000: (The Virgin of Revelation, Tre Fontane, Italy was approved by the Vicariate of Rome in 1947) [His vision / dream occurred 13 years before the Declaratio of Pope Benedict XVI]

“I found myself with all the Sacri members [the faithful] in Saint Peter's praying for our indulgences for the Jubilee. Suddenly we heard the boom of a loud explosion, followed by shouting: “Death to the Christians!” A crowd of barbarians [Muslims?] were running through the Basilica, killing anyone they came across. I shouted out to the Sacri [the faithful] : 'Let's go outside and form a barrier around the Basilica'. We went out into the Church square and all knelt down with the Rosary in our hands begging the Holy Virgin to come with Jesus to save us. The entire piazza was full of the faithful, with priests and religious. All the faithful were praying with us. The women were wearing a veil on their heads, either white or black and all the priests were wearing a cassock and all the religious wore the habits of their particular Order. At the side of the Church square, the bishops were on the left as you faced the Church, and the cardinals were on the right, and they were praying on their knees with their faces to the ground...
Suddenly the Virgin was there with us and she said: 'Have faith, they will not prevail.' We were all crying with joy and the persecutors started coming outside, ready to throw themselves upon us but a host of angels surrounded us and the diabolical oppressors dropped their weapons on the ground and with fear in their eyes most of them ran away but others knelt on the ground with us, saying: 'Your faith is the true one and we believe in it.' The cardinals and bishops then got up and, carrying a bucket of water, they started baptising those pagans that were kneeling before them, and everyone was shouting: 'Long live Mary, Virgin of the Revelation, who showed us Jesus, the Word made flesh who saved mankind.' We then continued to pray with the Virgin Mary while the bells of Saint Peter's rang out loudly in full celebration and the Pope himself came outside.”

NOTE: “in St. Peter´s to gain Jubilee Indulgences” – Is this a clue when an attack on Rome will occur?

The next “ordinary” Jubilee Year (Holy Year) will be in 2025 and traditionally begins on or about Christmas Eve, December 24, 2024 and ends on the Feast of the Epiphany, January 6, 2026.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Prophecy of St. John Bosco on the Vigil of the Feast of the Epiphany, January 5, 1870:

God alone is almighty, all-knowing, all-seeing. God has neither past nor future; everything is present to Him, everything at a single point of time. Nothing eludes God. No person, no place is distant from Him. In His infinite mercy and for His glory He alone can unveil the future to man.

On the vigil of the Epiphany of this year, 1870, all material things in my room disappeared, and I found myself contemplating supernatural matters. It was only a matter of an instant, but I saw a great deal. Although what I witnessed was sensibly present, I find it extremely difficult to communicate it to others intelligibly, as one may realize by what follows. This is the Word of God in human parlance:

"War will come from the south, peace from the north.

"The laws of France no longer recognize the Creator. The Creator will reveal Himself by visiting her three times with the scourge of His wrath. The first time He will destroy her pride by defeat, pillage, and destruction of crops, cattle, and men. On His second visit the great whore of Babylon, which the faithful grievingly call Europe's brothel, shall lose her leader and fall prey to chaos.

"Paris! Paris! Instead of fortifying yourself with the Lord's name, you surround yourself with houses of ill repute. You yourself shall destroy them; your idol, the Pantheon, will be razed to the ground, so that it may truthfully be said that 'iniquity has lied to itself.' [Ps. 26,12] Your enemies will plunge you into anguish, famine, terror, and the contempt for My law, says the Lord.

"On My third visit, you shall fall under the foreign yoke. From afar your enemies will see your palaces in flames, your home in ruins, soaked in the blood of your heroes who are no more.

"But behold, a great warrior from the north appears, a banner in his right hand, his arm bearing this inscription: 'Irresistible is the hand of the Lord.' At that moment the Venerable Old Man of Rome went forward to meet him, wielding a flaming torch. The banner then grew larger and its blackness became white as snow; in its center stood out the name of the Almighty in golden letters.

"The warrior and his followers bowed profoundly to the Venerable Old Man and joined hands with him.

"Now the voice of Heaven is addressed to the Shepherd of Shepherds. You are in solemn conference with your co-workers, but the enemy of good never stands idle. He cunningly plots and sets all his wiles against you. He will sow discord among your helpers and will rear enemies among My sons. The powers of the world shall vomit fire. They would love to smother My words in the throats of the guardians of My law, but they shall not succeed. (This has already been attempted and will still be attempted, especially in Prussia [Germany].) They shall do much harm, but only to themselves. Hurry! If knots cannot be untied, sever them. Do not halt in the face of difficulties, but go forth until the hydra of error has been beheaded. At this blow earth and hell shall tremble, but the world will be saved and the faithful shall exult. Gather around you only two co-workers, yet wherever you go, carry on the task entrusted to you and bring it to completion. Days go by swiftly and your years are reaching their appointed number, but the great Queen shall always assist you, and, as in the past, She shall always be magnum et singulare in Ecclesia praesidium [“the powerful, prodigious defense of the Church”or more precisely, "the Great and Singular Defense in the Church.”]

"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 and scatter the sheep so that those who sit upon the chair of Moses may seek better pastures and their flock may gently listen and be fed.

"But My hand shall be heavy upon both flock and shepherds. 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. Now he is old, frail, defenseless, and dispossessed. [Pope Benedict XVI?] Nevertheless, though captive, his words cause the whole world to tremble.

"O Rome! Four times shall I come to you!
The first time I shall smite your regions and its people. The second time I shall bring slaughter and destruction to your very gates. Should not that make you open your eyes? A third time shall I come, and I will demolish your defenses and defenders. At My Father's command, terror, dismay, and desolation will reign.

"My wise followers flee, but My law is still trod underfoot. Therefore, I shall come a fourth time. Woe to you if My law again shall go unheeded. There shall be defections among both learned and ignorant. Your blood and that of your children shall wipe out your transgressions.

"War, plague, and famine are the scourges to smite human pride and malice. Where are your magnificent villas and palaces, you people of wealth? They have become the litter of squares and streets!

"And you priests, why are you not prostrate between the vestibule and the altar, weeping and praying that the scourge may cease? Why do you not take up the shield of faith and preach My Word from the rooftops, in the houses, streets, and squares, and even in inaccessible places? Do you not know that this is the terrible two-edged sword which smites My enemies and placates the wrath of God and man?

"These things shall inexorably come to pass, all in succession.

"Things follow too slowly upon each other, but the great Queen of Heaven is at hand; the Lord's power is Hers.
Like mist She shall scatter Her enemies. She shall vest the Venerable Old Man with all his former garments.

"There shall yet come a violent hurricane. Iniquity is at an end, sin shall cease, and before two full moons shall have shone in the month of flowers, the rainbow of peace shall appear on the earth.


"The great Minister shall see the Bride of his King clothed in glory.

"Throughout the world a sun so bright shall shine as was never seen since the flames of the Cenacle until today, nor shall it be seen again until the end of time.

NOTE: May is the month of flowers in Rome, Italy. The next time May will have two full moons is in the year 2026.
IF I'm interpreting this correctly these two pieces of Catholic Prophecy appear to be connected and might occur consecutively.

1) An attack on Rome during the Jubilee Year: any time from December 24, 2024 until January 6, 2026?
2) The triumph of the Queen of Heaven: any time before the end of May of 2026?

And finally, IF the two men in the Vatican are the same ones mentioned in the Third Secret of Fatima released on the 26th of June 2000 and IF the proper interpretation of Our Lord's Warning given to Sr. Lucy of Fatima in Rianjo, Spain in August of 1931 is a "100 year period of time" (i.e., as the King of France 17 June 1689 - 17 June 1789 so goes the Pope) which began counting down on the 13th …More

THEN fasten your safety belt... Rome is in for a major surprise within the next 7 years, 10 months, 29 days and counting [100 years from the delivery date of the Mandate from Heaven is June 13, 2029].

Even so, I'd stake the deed to my home that, based on all the theological errors "the blessed mother" (lower case and "fake quotes" intentional) dropped over the years at Medjoo-joo-Land, those "visionaries" are in the same boat we are.

But that's my point. ANYBODY can be a "seer" so long as you mix just the right blend of fact and vagueness along with some common sense in your "predictions". Being a seer is a scam. Most "visonaries" are scammers too. When I correctly predicted the winner of the 2020 US Presidential Election, there was no way my Formal Prediction could be anything but correct. "The winner would be a white male with the letter "O" in his first name." Both guys running filled those criteria so my "formal prediction" would come true no matter who won.

But... that's what being a "seer" and a "visionary" is all about! Like so... I hearby, as GTV's Self Appointed Official Seer Formally Predict The Following Before December 31st, thousands of maple leaves fall to the ground throughout New England and Canada. I will wager a one year ban on my account against the accuracy of any of my bolded formal predictions including that one. Am I in the least bit worried? Shucks no. Based on the number of "lawn 'n leaf" bags sitting outside my curb throughout October and November, my prediction will come true just in my back yard alone!

Your prediction could refer to Francis' ill-health or his irascable (possiblly increasingly senile) behavior. Those two factors alone guarantee a whole bunch of surprises

...particularly since Pope Francis does revere The God of Surprises who's always delighted in making fools of his follower.

. If senile dementia finally overwhelms Our Supreme Pontiff to the point he strips nude during a a public address and starts clucking like a chicken, you've been proven true. If he drops dead, you've been proven true. If that lunatic Tagle gets appointed Francis' successor (and it's gonna be Tagle, just watch) You've been proven true.We live in an age given over to the dominion of the God of Surprises so your prediciton of surpises will always be true.

From the passages you've supplied, you're taking prophecy and prediction far more seriously than I ever do. I've read far too many historically inaccurate "visions" from Catholics who have already been awarded titles like "the Blessed (whoever)" for their visions of Christ's Passion and Crucifixion. They may be profoundly devout, they may be well-intentioned, but some of the stuff they've "seen"simply doesn't square with (for example) Roman military history or the marks on The Shroud of Turin (which ARE in keeping with Roman execution methods).

I choose not to embarrass devout (and long dead) Catholics by fact-checking their visions, all the moreso since whatever they "saw" won't in any way lead the Faithful into errors or away from The True Faith, but all the same. Some of their "visions' were meh.

Mystical visions are even worse. It's bad enough to 'fortell' the future, but when the future is hidden by symbolism, then it can be interpreted a dozen different ways, all but ensuring one interpretaton will always, always apply.

For me, being a "seer" is a way to underscore the fact anybody can do it and do it well. My formal predictions were, are, and always shall be true because they're crafted to guarantee that. So you can be a "visionary" even if you've never once had a genuine vision.

Now that I think of it, you could be GTV's Self-Appointed Official Visionary! :D Now -there- is a thought. I'll be the seer and you can be visionary... Your job will be even easier if you just stick with far-out symbolism and metaphors... "I saw an angel dressed in white, seated beside a Roman foountain, crying out 'Who is this man? Why does he share my garments?"

See? That's how easy it is. :D

While I'm on the subject, I should emphasize this in NO way refers to Fatima or (even more importantly) prophets within Scripture. Prophets speak directly on behalf of God and that, putting it mildly, is very serious business. Any flippancy on my part evaporates instantly, regardless of whether I understand the prophet's message or not.

Reflecting on this apparition certainly gives us an idea of how bad things might get before the triumph of The Immaculate Heart. I hope I'm wrong.
