And Elias, the prophet, stood up, as a fire, and his word burnt like a torch (Ecclesiasticus. 48.1, DRV)

"Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven..."


 Solemn Commemoration of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel

As the vine I have brought forth a pleasant odor, and my flowers are the fruit of honor and riches. I am the Mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope. IN ME IS ALL GRACE OF THE WAY AND OF THE TRUTH, IN ME IS ALL HOPE OF LIFE AND OF VIRTUE. Come over to me... and be filled with my fruits.... He that hearkeneth to me shall not be confounded, and they that work by me shall not sin (from the Epistle of the Mass, Ecclesiasticus 24.23-31).

At Fatima in Portugal, the "Woman" of the Apocalypse (Ch. XII; cf., our post "The Great Sign in Heaven") appeared as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel before She returned to Heaven - "She wants us to wear Her Scapular" (Sr. Lucia, C.D.). "Those who wear Her Scapular," says Pope Pius XII, "profess to belong to Her" [and obey Her "Rule" - see "The 'Rule' of Our Lady...": a nine-day novena series of spiritual exhortations] And those who belong to Her She makes like to Her, "a garden enclosed, a fountain sealed up" (Canticle of Canticles 4.12) - see our post "Flower of Carmel".

A most blessed Feast to everyone, especially to our followers!

Salvation is in the "Blood of the Lamb"

Apocalypse XIV now unfolding (cf., our posts "The Wine of the Wrath of God" and "After Pope Benedict XVI, the 'Last' Roman Pontiff?"). The divine chastisement of world-wide conflagration (Lk. 17.29-30, cf., our post "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations") to annihilate the 'super-power' and cities and nations drunk with the wine of its immodesty, impurity, fornication, homosexuality, and blasphemies (Apoc. 14.8) is imminent - the close of our end-times period (distinct from the consummation of the world, Mt. 28.20).

They... have made them white in the Blood of the Lamb
(Apoc. 7.14) ... All things... are cleansed with Blood: and without shedding of Blood there is no remission (Heb. 9.22).

The Blood of the [Divine] Lamb can be availed of in the traditional Rite of the Sacrament of Penance (cf., our post "On Concealing Sins in Confession") and of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist (the Traditional Latin Mass). Go to our traditional Catholic Mass Centers (links on the left-side bar of this site). Flee to the mountains... (Mt. 24.16).
