I have come across some disturbing news that I feel I need to share with you. Apparently at some point over the last several months, WikiLeaks and D.C. Leaks had released emails that expose a conspiracy against the Catholic Church. These emails reveal a plot to overthrow the authority of the Magisterium and change Church doctrines. Emails released in August 2016 from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation show that he paid $650,000 to influence U.S. bishops during Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. in 2015. Here is one article that explains this in detail, and Part 2 to that article can be found here.
I have also come across an open letter to President Trump, written by The Remnant Newspaper, that urges him to investigate a possible conspiracy involving the replacement of Pope Benedict XVI with Pope Francis. You can read the letter in its entirety here, and below are a few lines taken from the letter to give you the gist of its message:
Reversing recent collectivist trends will, by necessity, require a reversal of many of the actions taken by the previous administration. Among those actions we believe that there is one that remains cloaked in secrecy. Specifically, we have reason to believe that a Vatican “regime change” was engineered by the Obama administration.
We were alarmed to discover that, during the third year of the first term of the Obama administration your previous opponent, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and other government officials with whom she associated proposed a Catholic “revolution” in which the final demise of what was left of the Catholic Church in America would be realized. Approximately a year after this e-mail discussion, which was never intended to be made public, we find that Pope Benedict XVI abdicated under highly unusual circumstances and was replaced by a pope whose apparent mission is to provide a spiritual component to the radical ideological agenda of the international left.  The Pontificate of Pope Francis has subsequently called into question its own legitimacy on a multitude of occasions. 
Praying for Discernment
We live in extremely confusing times, and it’s a wonder anyone can stay sane amid the noise and the propaganda that surrounds us on all sides, both physically and spiritually. My objective in sharing this disturbing discovery with you is not to spread lies or propaganda, but to encourage all of you—all of us—to pray for discernment from the Holy Spirit so that we are guided by the truth. Let’s hope all of this is a whole bunch of nothing and that an investigation is done that will provide veritable proof of nothing sinister having taken place concerning the Vatican and the two popes.
We may be reminded of what Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich said when she foretold future occurrences in the Catholic Church. The following are excerpts from her visions between the years 1820-1823, (in no particular order) pertaining to the emergence of a subversive Church of Darkness that would deceive many of the faithful:
I saw very clearly the errors, the aberrations, and the countless sins of men. I saw the folly and the wickedness of their actions, against all truth and all reasons. Priests were among them, and I gladly endured my suffering so that they may return to a better mind.
I had another vision of the great tribulation. It seems to me that a concession was demanded from the clergy, which could not be granted. I saw many older priests, especially one, who wept bitterly. A few younger ones were also weeping. But others, and the lukewarm among them, readily did what was demanded. It was as if people were splitting into two camps…
Two Popes and a Counterfeit Church
Last night, from eleven to three, I had a most wonderful vision of two churches and two Popes and a variety of things, ancient and modern…. I saw the fatal consequences of this counterfeit church; I saw it increase; I saw heretics of all kinds flocking to the city. I saw the ever-increasing tepidity of the clergy, the circle of darkness ever widening. And now the vision became more extended. I saw in all places Catholics oppressed, annoyed, restricted, and deprived of liberty, churches were closed, and great misery prevailed everywhere with war and bloodshed. I saw rude, ignorant people offering violent resistance, but this state of things lasted not long. Again I saw in vision St. Peter’s undermined according to a plan devised by the secret sect while, at the same time, it was damaged by storms; but it was delivered at the moment of greatest distress. Again I saw the Blessed Virgin extending her mantle over it.
I saw the Holy Father surrounded by traitors and in great distress about the Church. He had visions and apparitions in his hour of greatest need. I saw many good pious Bishops; but they were weak and wavering, their cowardice often got the upper hand…
I saw the secret sect relentlessly undermining the great Church. Near them I saw a horrible beast coming up from the sea… All over the world, good and devout people especially the clergy were harassed, oppressed and put into prison. I had the feeling that they would become martyrs…
I see the Holy Father in great anguish. He lives in a palace other than before and he admits only a limited number of friends near him. I fear that the Holy Father will suffer many more trials before he dies. I see that the false Church of Darkness is making progress and I see the dreadful influence it has on the people… I have been told to pray much for the Church and the Pope… The people must pray earnestly for the extirpation of the dark church. …traitors and evildoers who were to be found among the high-ranking servants living close to him…
They built a large, singular, extravagant church which was to embrace all creeds with equal rights: Evangelicals, Catholics, and all denominations, a true communion of the unholy with one shepherd and one flock. There was to be a Pope, a salaried Pope, without possessions. All was made ready, many things finished; but, in place of an altar, were only abomination and desolation. Such was the new church to be, and it was for it that he had set fire to the old one; but God designed otherwise….
I wrote The False Prophet and the Antichrist a month ago, and in it I provided insights from Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen regarding the coming False Prophet and the Antichrist. Many of you may have already read it, but since there are some new subscribers who came along after I had written it, I wanted to be sure to mention it here.
We all remember February 11, 2013, the day Pope Benedict XVI resigned, when hours after he announced his resignation the Vatican was struck by lightening—twice. There’s an expression that “Lightening never strikes the same place twice.” I suppose that bizarre occurrence could’ve just been mere coincidence, but given the times in which we live, one really can’t help but wonder.
