Second Sunday After Epiphany
In today's Gospel, we see the faith and prompt obedience of the servants who, following the advice of Our Blessed Mother, immediately carry out the orders of Jesus; they fill the pots with water and then pour the good wine from them. Not a moment of doubt, not a protest - they simply obey. And how Our Lord remedies what is failing!
Our Blessed Mother, seeing that the Orient from on high (that is, her Son) and the moon (that is, the Catholic Church) reflecting to the world the Sun's light were about to be eclipsed (cf., our post "The Great Tribulation") in the 1960's (cf., our post "Our Lady and the New Orientation in Rome"), intervened at Fatima and finally at Tuy to bring us heaven's prescribed last remedy. But Her warnings were to meet not only a cold Papal "noted"; the crucial request was to become an object also of a mock-consecration by the Holy See itself (cf., our post "When Mary Comes III") - but by the Holy See debilitated (cf., our posts "A Perilous 'Catholic' Voyage" and "The Great Tribulation") by the first Apocalyptic woe (cf., 9.3) of the smoke of the pit and the emerging swarm of locusts (the infiltrating revolutionaries: the Freemasons, cf., our post "A Perilous 'Catholic' Voyage," and Communists, cf., our posts "The Year That Was 1929" and "Upheaval") all emanating from the Synagogue of Satan (Apoc. 2.9; 3.9), cf., our post "Anti-Christian Conspiracy: Scriptural Truth and Historical Fact." The onslaught of the four winds (Apoc. 7.1), which, in Prophet Jeremias (49.36) means a great slaughter of the 'good' and the bad (cf., the messages of Our Blessed Mother at Akita in Japan) and the extirpation of a nation (cf., the "annihilation of many nations" in our post, "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and 'Annihilation of Many Nations'"), was inevitable.
However, before anything will be hurt, all who can still be trained, as has been traditionally done, by the Church into faithful servants of God must be sealed with the mark of God on their foreheads. Therefore there was the vision of the four angels and that angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having the sign of the living God [the sign of the Cross, cf., the Hebrew thau of Ezech. 9.4] (Apoc. 7.1,2). These angels then are bishops* for we learn from St. Paul (2 Cor. 1.21,22) that "Confirmation was conferred by anointing and sealing besides the imposition of hands; probably just as it [has been traditionally] conferred" (Fr. H.B. Kramer, The Book of Destiny, p. 175). That this sealing of the foreheads with the mark of God refers to the Sacrament of Confirmation was confirmed by post-Apostolic writings.
* Cf., the angels of Apoc. 3-2; the chief priests: a priest who has the perpetual Levitical unction (cf. Ex. 40.13; 1 Paralipomenon 15.3), is the angel of the Lord of Hosts (Malachi 2.7).

and the four auxiliary Bishops after the occasson of the 1988 Episcopal Consecrations
Now, Bishop Fellay, one of the four auxiliary bishops of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X founded by Archbishop Lefebvre and the Fraternity's current Superior General, has gotten rid of Bishop Richard Williamson for the latter proved to be staunchest against the Society being dragged by its head - having long been sold to the idea that ninety-five percent of Vatican II is acceptable - into a privileged niche in the Neo-Church. It is as if only one were left trying to hold the onslaught of the four winds and so we are brought to the scene where the Lamb of God is already standing with His faithful servants whose foreheads bear the seal of the mark of the living God (Apoc. 14.1) - the scene of judgment (cf., Jude 1.14-15). The destruction of Babylon - the pseudo-Church drunk with the wine of ecumenical fornication, Catholic nations who have apostatized (cf., 2 Thess. 2.3), cities where enormous sins as blasphemy, impurity, fornication, and homosexuality abound and daily committed (cf., our post "... 'Annihilation of Many Nations'") - is imminent. Meanwhile, Bishop Williamson is flying... having the eternal gospel... saying with a loud voice (Apoc. 14.6):
