'I saw also the relationship between the two popes . . . I saw how baleful would be the consequences of this false church. I saw it increase in size; heretics of every kind came into the city (of Rome). The local clergy grew lukewarm, and I saw a great darkness ... .'

'I saw enlightened Protestants, plans formed for the blending of religious creeds, the suppression of papal authority … I saw no Pope, but a bishop prostrate before the High Altar. In this vision I saw the Church bombarded by other vessels … It was threatened on all sides … They built a large, extravagant church which was to embrace all creeds with equal rights … but in place of an altar were only abomination and desolation. Such was the new church to be … .'

— The Life and Revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich
We all raved about it when The Passion of the Christ came out.
How fascinated the Catholic world became of the visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich.
Even before the current conclave, again Catholics discussed the relevancy of Emmerich's visions in light of the possibility of a 'black pope.'
Well, we now have a 'black pope,' the first Jesuit in history to ascend to the Throne of Peter.
But has he been quickly dethroning the Throne of Peter?
Romans, we read from no less a source than the Moynihan Report, feel abandoned in the current situation as the papal apartments in Vatican City remain darkened and black throughout the night.
There is no longer a papal lamp lit in St. Peter's Square.
Interestingly, when Blessed Anne saw many of these visions regarding the Church's future, she was accompanied by one who had lived during a time of great schism: St. Frances of Rome.
But now Catholics have what they want.
A new 'pope,' even if he doesn't sign his name as such.
The fact that Emmerich saw 'two popes' and only a 'bishop' before the High Altar of St. Peter's during a time of great spiritual darkness seems to have no revelance any longer.
Many believe, and earnestly so, that Francis is part of Mary's plan to save the Church.
We certainly do not know better than our King or His Handmaid, the Mother of our Church and our Queen.
But the question we raise is how coincidental would it be for Emmerich to envision two popes?
How coincidental could it be for her visions regarding this to take place 97 years before the first vision at Fatima in 1917?
How coincidental could it be for two popes to be seen together for the first time in half a millennium of Church history and 96 years from the prophecies given at Fatima?
Are we taking Emmerich's words out of context?
Are Catholics afraid of examining this closer with other prophecies that correlate with those of Emmerich?
For us, these are not the only signs that cause us to question.
And what we explicitly question is the Catholic world's desire to set aside these visions which do not make us comfortable.
They are not for today, they now want to believe, but to some indistinct time far in the future.
Sorry. To other mystics of this time who had similar visions, the Lord said it would all occur within 200 years of time. Even Emmerich pointed to the year 2000 when much would be unveiled.
We will continue these series of questions in further posts with a simple view of not reviewing what words one speaks, but what actions one takes. For as it is said, actions speak louder.
If anyone believes that just because someone wears a cardinal's hat or other hierarchial regalia their words should be trusted, please do a little research on that guy from Scotland who just happened to miss the conclave because his words did not match his immoral actions; just the most recent of admitted liars.
In this, let us see whether the current Omega Francis is destined to rebuild the Church as the Alpha Francis was commanded to, or if he intends to further dethrone the Throne of Peter.
' I saw no Pope, but a bishop
prostrate before the High Altar.'
Don't look to the wimps in the Church to confirm Emmerich's visions, because the claim is made that they are forgeries. Just as the wimps now claim La Sallete's prophecies are forgeries, or that the messages of Fatima are for history; not the future.
They are the same wimps that made sure that the medallions that surround the inside of St. Paul's Outside the Walls were refurbished so that there was no longer one empty panel after the one depicting Benedict XVI. Now there are more than enough blank medallions to take the Church well into the 3rd Millennium.
Well, that took care of the so-called 'last pope' prophecy, no?
But that is why we chose to highlight these visions of Emmerich from 193 years ago. Words that a hierarchy desires to ignore unless they are trying to suppress them or debunk them.
For our Church is a Church that does not need persecutors.
It is doing a good enough job of persecuting itself.
