  • Padre Pio and the Three Days of Darkness

    From translation of a copy of a personal letter written by Padre Pio addressed to the Commission of Heroldsbach appointed by the Vatican that testifies to the truth and reality of these revelations on the Three Days of Darkness given by Our Lord to Padre Pio, a Capuchin priest who bore the stigmata.

    JANUARY 28, 1950
        Keep your windows well covered. Do not look out. Light a blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the rosary. Read spiritual books. Make acts of Spiritual Communion, also acts of love, which are so pleasing to Us. Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the ground, in order that many souls may be saved. Do not go outside the house. Provide yourself with sufficient food. The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear. Have courage! I am in the midst of you.

    FEBRUARY 7, 1950
        Take care of the animals during these days. I am the Creator and Preserver of all animals as well as man. I shall give you a Few signs beforehand, at which time you should place more food before them. I will preserve the property of the elect, including the animals, for they shall be in need of sustenance afterwards as well. Let no one go across the yard, even to feed the animals--he who steps outside will perish! Cover your windows carefully. My elect shall not see My wrath. Have confidence in Me, and I will be your protection. Your confidence obliges Me to come to your aid.
        The hour of My coming is near! But I will show mercy. A most dreadful punishment will bear witness to the times. My angels, who are to be the executioners of this work, are ready with their pointed swords! They will take special care to annihilate all those who mocked Me and would not believe in My revelations.
        Hurricanes of fire will pour forth from the clouds and spread over the entire earth! Storms, bad weather, thunderbolts and earthquakes will cover the earth for two days. An uninterrupted rain of fire will take place! It will begin during a very cold night. All this is to prove that God is the Master of Creation. Those who hope in Me, and believe in my words, have nothing to fear because I will not forsake them, nor those who spread My message. No harm will come to those who are in the state of grace and who seek My mother's protection.
        That you may be prepared for these visitations, I will give you the following signs and instructions: The night will be very cold. The wind will roar. After a time, thunderbolts will be heard. Lock all the doors and windows. Talk to no one outside the house. Kneel down before a crucifix, be sorry for your sins, and beg My Mother's protection. Do not look during the earthquake, because the anger of God is holy! Jesus does not want us to behold the anger of God, because God's anger must be contemplated with fear and trembling.
        Those who disregard this advice will be killed instantly. The wind will carry with it poisonous gases which will be diffused over the entire earth. Those who suffer and die innocently will be martyrs and they will be with Me in My Kingdom.
        Satan will triumph! But after three nights, the earthquake and fire will cease. On the following day the sun will shine again. angels will descend from Heaven and will spread the spirit of peace over the earth. A feeling of immeasurable gratitude will take possession of those who survive this terrible ordeal-the impending punishment-with which God has visited the earth since creation.
        I have chosen souls in other countries too, such as Belgium, Switzerland. Spain, who have received these revelations so that other countries also may be prepared. Pray much during this Holy Year of 1950. Pray the Rosary, but pray it well, so that your prayers may reach Heaven. Soon a more terrible catastrophe shall come upon the entire world, such as never before has been witnessed, a terrible chastisement never before experienced! The war of 1950 shall be the introduction to these things.
        How unconcerned men are regarding these things! which shall so soon come upon them, contrary to all expectations. How indifferent they are in preparing themselves for these unheard of events, through which they will have to pass so shortly!
        The weight of the Divine balance has reached the earth! The wrath of My Father shall be poured out over the entire world! I am again warning the world through your instrumentality, as I have so often done heretofore.
        The sins of men have multiplied beyond measure: Irreverence in Church, sinful pride committed in sham religious activities, lack of true brotherly love, indecency in dress, especially at summer seasons...The world is filled with iniquity.
        This catastrophe shall come upon the earth like a flash of lightning at which moment the light of the morning sun shall be replaced by black darkness! No one shall leave the house or look out of a window from that moment on. I Myself shall come amidst thunder and lightning. The wicked shall behold My Divine Heart. There shall be great confusion because of this utter darkness in which the entire earth shall be enveloped, and many, many shall die from fear and despair.
        Those who shall fight for My cause shall receive grace from My Divine Heart; and the cry: "WHO IS LIKE UNTO GOD!" shall serve as a means of protection to many. However, many shall burn in the open fields like withered grass! The godless shall be annihilated, so that afterwards the just shall be able to stand afresh.
        On the day, as soon as complete darkness has set in, no one shall leave the house or look from out of the window. The darkness shall last a day and a night, followed by another day and a night, and another day--but on the night following, the stars will shine again, and on the next morning the sun shall rise again, and it will be SPRINGTIME!!
        In the days of darkness, My elect shall not sleep, as did the disciples in the garden of olives. They, shall pray incessantly, and they shall not be disappointed in Me. I shall gather My elect. Hell will believe itself to be in possession of the entire earth, but I shall reclaim it!
        Do you, perhaps, think that I would permit My Father to have such terrible chastisements come upon the world, if the world would turn from iniquity to justice? But because of My great love, these afflictions shall be permitted to come upon man. Although many shall curse Me, yet thousands of souls shall be saved through them. No human understanding can fathom the depth of My love!
        Pray! Pray! I desire your prayers. My Dear Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Elizabeth, Saint Conrad, Saint Michael. Saint Peter, the Little Therese, Your Holy Angels, shall be your intercessors. Implore their aid! Be courageous soldiers of Christ! At the return of light, let everyone give thanks to the Holy Trinity for Their
    protection! The devastation shall be very great! But I, Your God, will have purified the earth. I am with you. Have confidence!

    (Here ends Padre Pio's Message)

    Home spared in Hiroshima, Japan . . .
        There is connection between atomic explosion in Hiroshima, Japan and events in Fatima, because one group of Jesuits survived this explosion without any scratch and they lived right in the middle of Hiroshima where was center of explosion. Even theirs animals and grass on land was protected. Scientists were not able to find answer on this but theologians did: "They lived the Message of Fatima".

  • from Our Lady of Akita (Approved apparition by Bishop John Ito of Niigata, Japan ):

    Third and the Last message on October 13, 1973:

    ". . . 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."

    "The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."

    "The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them."

    ". . . Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved."

  • I am a little confused about the Three Days of Darkness. Where does this fit in with what Our Lady told us at Fatima about Russia spreading her errors throughout the world, the good being persecuted and many nations being annhiliated? And the era of peace to follow after the Pope consecrates Russia to Her Immaculate Heart? Which comes first?

    Russia spreading its evil comes first, and in fact it has already happened, particularly through freemasonry. No person knows exactly how or when nations will be "annhiliated". It could be due to a World War III, or a comet hitting the earth, no telling. That may not actually happen until the Anti-Christ comes though, because he will supposedly be into wars. What is known is that Russia will eventually be Consecrated to Mary's Immaculate Heart (either before or after the three days of darkness). The era of peace will come as soon as the three days of darkness are over.

    Actually it is. While the three days are not mentioned by name, a chastizement that sounds exactly like the three days is mentioned.

    Father Hubert Schiffer, S.J. and others.  They baffled all of the scientists who attempted to understand the survival of the Jesuit House.

    I'll look for some good stuff to share.

  • It has been some time since I've researched this topic.  It is much harder to find the photos and interviews with the Priests.

    Sadly, the Jesuits themselves appear to have downplayed this miraculous event.  Unless my research skills have further deteriorated.

    Actually,  The Three Days of Darkness was the 9th Plague.  There is no reason to believe that it will not happen again.

    Though I really don't know much about the "three days of darkness" and I don't know if the prophecy has any merit, this statement is ludicrous on its face as something being in the bible has absolutely no relevance on whether something is true or not.

    It is mentioned in the Apocalypse. Though TKGS is right, just because something is not mentioned in the Bible does not mean it won't happen.

    Spiritus is right... I personally think the 3 days of darkness will be the chasitisment of the world..refered to in the appocolypse, stinko. I think after the rull of the anti-christ, 7 years is it? That is when God will step in and chasitise humanity. Why would there be a chasitisment before the anti-christ is to appear?


    Actually the three days of darkness comes before the Anti-Christ. This is because the world is already in bad shape. You don't think God would allow the Anti-Christ to come now when it's already this bad do you? Then the Anti-Christ will come, then he will be defeated by Christ and then the world will end. This, of course, will mark the second coming of Christ.

    Hitler was the Antichrist and the 'chastisement' has been going on for almost a century, obvious to anyone paying attention. Two world wars and sixty million dead, the Cold War and worldwide strife and a hundred million dead, now worldwide famine and then pestilence and who knows how many will die...just how much chastisement were you hoping for?


    No, the Anti-Christ will be a Jew that will appear in the Holy Lands and will be possessed by Satan. He will claim to be a Prophet most likely. And the chastizement will be much worse than what this world is going through right now. I recommend you read more about what St. Padre Pio had to say on the subject.

  • Hitler was more of a bogeyman than an Antichrist.

    Read the Catholic prophecies about the Antichrist -- he will be much, much worse.

    I know the Jewish-controlled media has convinced many that Hitler was the most evil man to walk on two legs -- but that simply isn't true. Countless men before him were just as evil, or more evil.

    I'm not saying Hitler wasn't a bad man, but I don't like to see any truth exaggerated to the point of falsehood.  

    Anyone who thinks Hitler was the embodiment of evil doesn't have much of an imagination and/or isn't well educated.

    And I know that Nazi Germany has been set up to be the worst congregation of beings this side of Hell -- also not true. Has anyone here read about the wide-scale rape of Germany that took place after World War 2 ended?

    It was the Communists (founded by Jews) who committed much greater atrocities. Hitler locked up the Jews and made them work (and yes, some were punished and killed in the labor camps) -- when the Communists took over, they raped every German woman they could find.
    Read about it, if you have the stomach for it.
