Four Last Things: Episode 5

Spiritual Warfare

  1. BVM Fatima July 13, 1917: (three children Lucy Dos Santos (9yr) St. Jacinta (6) & St. Francisco Marto (8)

Sr. Lucy of Fatima isn’t a saint (she died recently, in 2005), but she was one of the visionaries of Fatima in the early 20th century, an approved apparition in the Church. As a part of that vision, Lucy sees hell. In 1941, Sr. Lucia wrote:

“We saw “a sea of fire; and plunged in this fire the demons and souls, as if they were red-hot coals, transparent and black or bronze colored, with human forms, which floated about in the conflagration, bore by the flames which issued from it with clouds of smoke, falling on all sides as sparks fall in great conflagrations- without weight or equilibrium, among shrieks and groans of sorrow and despair which horrify and cause to shudder with fear.

The devils were distinguished by horrible and loathsome forms of animals frightful that they would have died, they felt, if they had been told they were all going to heaven. After gazing in fascinated horror at the gruesome spectacle which not even Saint Teresa has described more fearfully, they raised their eyes as if in desperate appeal to the Lady who stood gazing down on them with somber tenderness.  “You see hell, where the souls of poor sinners go”, she said at length.”[1][2]

Modern intellectual shocked by showing kids is a scandal and yet the Moderns show children much worse.

The young saints are messages of hope and trying to save souls of impending chastisement.

Reasonable hope is madness. Stop the madness.

Grace build on nature, things learn by nature have broad applicability. Fire burns, hot, painful. Why think spiritual fire less painful. Not reasonable expectation.

Confirmation, mortal sin, unfair commit only one. Jump off Eiffel Tour no lively hopw that some will be saved. Only get one chance when jump off.

Church tells us not to commit a mortal sin with 3 factors: grave matter, full knowledge, full consent.

God’s justice will be satisfied.

>> Reasonable hope all of this is wrong? Stop the madness. Stop Mendeleist theology.

Not what I say, or Sara says, or any other person regardless of their title or position. Do your own research. Be a mature son or daughter of the Father. Teach your children, give a ready defense when asked (1Pet 3:15) Your conclusions have consequences both now and for all of eternity. Both heaven and hell begin on earth.

Has well documented cases of NDE. Note the correlation to the doctrine of particular judgment.

Caution NDE inspire us with hope but do not let it lead to presumption. No guarantee get a second chance. Warning.
