St. Nilus, in
the 15th century, said:
"After the year 1900, toward the middle of the 20th
century...men will fly through the air as birds and descend to
the bottom of the sea as fish...the people of that time will
When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches,
peoples minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and
dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger..."
Mother Shipton Prophecy
These verses were on the outer
wrapping of the scrolls
I know I go - I know I'm free
I know that this will come to be.
Secreted this - for this will be
Found by later dynasty
A dairy maid, a bonny lass
Shall kick this stone as she does pass
And five generations she shall breed
Before one male child does learn to read.
This is then held year by year
Till an iron monster trembling fear
eats parchment, words and quill and ink
And mankind is given time to think.
And only when this comes to be
Will mankind read this prophecy
But one mans sweets anothers bane
So I shall not have burned in vain.
Brother John of the Cleft Rock (14th century)
"Towards the end of the world, tyrants and
hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their
possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap
the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem." "At
that time, the Pope with his cardinals will have to flee Rome
in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown.
The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings
of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time
in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels
will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will rebuild almost
the whole world through his holiness. He will lead everyone to
the true Faith. Everywhere, the fear of God, virtue, and good
morals will prevail. He will lead all erring sheep back to the
fold, and there shall be one faith, one law, one rule of life,
and one baptism on earth. All men will love each other and do
good, and all quarrels and wars will cease."
Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser (17th century, Germany)
"During this period, many men
will abuse the freedom of conscience conceded to them. It is
of such men that Jude, the Apostle, spoke when he said: 'These
men blaspheme- whatever they do not understand; and they
corrupt whatever they know naturally as irrational animals do.
. . They feast together without restraint, feeding themselves,
grumbling murmurers, walking according to their lusts; their
mouth speaketh proud things, they admire people for the sake
of gain; they bring about division, sensual men, having not
"During this unhappy period, there will be laxity in divine
and human precepts. Discipline will suffer. The Holy Canons
will be completely disregarded, and the Clergy will not
respect the laws of the Church. Everyone will be carried away
and led to believe and to do what he fancies, according to the
manner of the flesh."
"They will ridicule Christian simplicity; they will call it
folly and nonsense, but they will have the highest regard for
advanced knowledge, and for the skill by which the axioms of
the law, the precepts of morality, the Holy Canons and
religious dogmas are clouded by senseless questions and
elaborate arguments. As a result, no principle at all, however
holy, authentic, ancient, and certain it may be, will remain
free of censure, criticism, false interpretations,
modification and delimitation by man." These are evil times, a
century full of dangers and calamities. Heresy is everywhere,
and the followers of heresy are in power almost everywhere.
Bishops, prelates, and priests say that they are doing their
duty, that they are vigilant, and that they live as befits
their state in life. In like manner, therefore, they all seek
excuses. But God will permit a great evil against His Church:
Heretics and tyrants will come suddenly and unexpectedly; they
will break into the Church while bishops, prelates, and
priests are asleep. They will enter Italy and lay Rome waste;
they will burn down the churches and destroy everything."
Fr. Nectou, S.J. (18th century)
"The confusion will be so
general that men will not be able to think aright, as if God
had withheld His Providence from mankind, and that, during the
worst crisis, the best that can be done would be to remain
where God has placed us, and persevere in fervent
prayers....At that time there will be such a terrible crisis
that people will believe that the end of the world has come.
Blood will flow in many large cities. The very elements will
be convulsed. It will be like a little General Judgement."
"A great multitude of people will lose their lives in those
calamitous times, but the wicked will not prevail. They will
indeed attempt to destroy the whole Church, but not enough
time will be allowed them, because the frightful crisis will
be of short duration. When all is considered lost, all will be
found safe. This disaster will come to pass shortly after the
power of England begins to wane. This will be the sign. As
when the fig tree begins to sprout and produce leaves, it is a
sure sign that summer is near. England in her turn will
experience a more frightful revolution than that of France. It
will continue long enough for France to recover her strength;
then she will help England to restore peace and order."
"During this revolution, which will very likely be general and
not confined to France. Paris will be destroyed so completely
that twenty years afterwards fathers walking over its ruins
with their children will be asked by them what kind of place
that was; to whom they will answer: 'My child, this was a
great city which God has destroyed on account of her crimes.'"
Sister Elena Aiello (20th Century, Italy)
She was a Foundress of a
religious order, a holy nun, a victim soul, and Stigmatist.
The Blessed Virgin Mary
appeared and told her on August 22, 1960:
" . . . if people . . . do not return to God with truly
Christian living, another terrible war will come from the East
to the West. Russia with her secret armies will battle
America: will overrun Europe. The river Rhine will be
overflowing with corpses and blood. Italy will also be
harassed by a great revolution, and the Pope will suffer
The Blessed Virgin showed her other visions during 1959-1961:
"Oh, what a horrible vision I see! A great revolution is going
on in Rome! They are entering the Vatican. The Pope is all
alone; he is praying. They are holding the Pope. They take him
by force. They knock him down to the floor. They are tying
him. Oh. God! Oh, God! They are kicking him. What a horrible
scene! How dreadful!"
"Our Blessed Mother is drawing near. Like corpses those evil
men fall down to the floor. Our Lady helps the Pope to his
feet and, taking him by the arm, She covers him with her
mantle saying: Fear not!'
"Russia will march upon all the nations of Europe,
particularly Italy, and will raise her flag over the dome of
St. Peter's. Italy will be severely tried by a great
revolution, and Rome will be purified in blood for its many
sins, especially those of impurity. The flock is about to be
dispersed and the Pope will suffer greatly."
Blessed Anna-Maria Taigi (19th century, Italy)
Popes and cardinals have
referred to this holy married woman as one of the greatest
saints of all time. She was praised by Pope Benedict XV in her
beatification on May 20, 1920 as being an exemplary wife and
mother amid poor and trying circumstances. She was frequently
in ecstasy, worked miracles of healing, read hearts, foretold
deaths, and saw visions on the coming of future events. She
foretold the first two world wars of this century. Eighteen
years after her death, her body remained fresh and in a state
of perfect preservation as if it had been just buried the day
before. The following is her prophecy on the three days of
darkness. "God will send two punishments: one will be in the
form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate
on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come
over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days
and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be
laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only,
the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any
man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed
candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look
out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During
these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray
the Rosary and beg God for mercy." "All the enemies of the
Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole
earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of a
few whom God will soon convert. The air shall be infected by
demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms."
"Religion shall be persecuted, and priests massacred Churches
shall be closed, but only for a short time. The Holy Father
shall be obliged to leave Rome."
