"If men do not repent and better themselves, God the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity," Mary reportedly told Sr. Agnes. "It will be a punishment greater than the (biblical) flood, such as never seen before."
"Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful," she said. "The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church, in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops."
That sets off warning bells in my mind since replacing the homily or anyone giving the homily besides the priest is a liturgical abuse.
On the other hand, people express their concern that the interpretations they express in the sharing might be heretical.
"He very much liked dialogue with other faiths," Charbonneau said, noting that at one point during his time in Japan, Lachapelle had worked as a prison chaplain with Protestant pastors, Buddhist monks and Hindu priests.
BBC reports "Pope Benedict XVI was 'deeply saddened by the brutal and tragic consequences of the severe earthquake and tsunami that struck north-eastern coastal regions' of Japan, a telegram sent by Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone on his behalf to Japan's Roman Catholic bishops says. The pope was praying for the dead and hoped that their families and friends would find 'strength and consolation', it adds."
". . . if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests."
Where is the Pope during these terrible times anyway?
Now the apparition tells us to pray for the Pope the bishops and the priests. I'm sure that the Pope will be well protected in times of turmoil as will the Vatican and all who occupy that little country. So we are to direct our prayers toward these figure heads because this apparition doesn't tell us to pray for everyone on the planet that will be taking the brunt of this terrible punishment that we must be deserving.
Okay, so let's say that these men didn't repent and better themselves according to the vague demands of this apparition. Does this seem like something that an all loving and knowing God would punish all humanity for? According to this apparition we are to recite the prayers of the Rosary. I believe the Bible tells us not to recite repetitious prayers or use idols. Don't make me pull out scripture.
I form the light, and create darkness: [color=gold]I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
