Instead of sitting around wondering ...
I saw another article about the warning and chastisement here. Though the specifics are linked to unapproved apparition(s) - the basic premise makes sense.
The thing is - we've been going towards it little by little, alternated with great strides, and now we are here.
A friend sent me an article from the NYTimes: ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape. I can't read it - it is too horrible, too evil - obscene. It is the evil fruit of pornography. We - in this country prosecute decades old crimes of sexual abuse. Just punishment, of course. It just seems so ironic to me.
Adults who have survived the experience for decades - now suing right and left - while the world sits idly by as Muslim criminals rape and pillage and maim and behead fellow countrymen, Christians, men and women and children, as if it is Medieval times.
Grown men in the United States cry on TV because some priest touched his genitals or kissed him, and in some cases raped him. These cry babies want to sue to get compensation to assuage their pain, their shame. C'mon! You have the guts to wail and moan for yourself on television, while men, women and children are raped and murdered on a daily basis by ISIS perverts. What is wrong with us today?
Muslim criminals are devils incarnate - their assault signifies a sort of hell unleashed - on earth. What more do we need to know we are in the chastisement, the days of Antichrist?
The latest indication of this demonic theology of rape comes from the family of Kayla Mueller:
The leader of the Islamic State personally kept a 26-year-old American woman as a hostage and raped her repeatedly, according to U.S. officials and her family.
The disclosure that Mueller was raped by Baghdadi adds to the grim evidence that the exploitation and abuse of women has been sanctioned at the highest levels of the Islamic State. The sexual enslavement of even teenage girls is seen as religiously endorsed by the group and regarded as a recruiting tool. - WP
First of all, this needs our concern, our tears, our prayers. We need to sacrifice our selfish self interests and devote ourselves to stopping rape and murder in all of it's forms - beginning with abortion and infanticide. The constant, daily violation, rape, and slaughter of infants, reddens our soil with the blood of these innocents. We have tolerated it for decades, and now we are reaping the results.
Though 'priest and prophet forage in lands they know not' - we know. We now know - if we just look around. Despite cover-ups and news black outs, and petty arguing, everything is being revealed - consciences are being illuminated - sins are now revealed, which means we no longer have an excuse.
Nothing will be left - except the prayers of the Rosary and the sign of the Eucharist.
Sounds extremist, huh? The crimes, the atrocities committed by ISIS are more extreme. The crimes, atrocities committed by Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry are even more extreme.
Oooooooh, a storm is threat'ning ...
I've known this stuff since I returned to the Church in 1972. I doubted, went into denial, distracted myself, sought my own comfort and consolation in this and that - ignored the signs, ignored the crimes. It won't 'get better' - it doesn't 'get better'. Listen to your conscience - do not sadden the Holy Spirit. Pray and sacrifice yourself.

fair as the moon, bright as the sun,
terrible as an army set in battle array? - Little Office BVM
Why I think everything has been revealed.
"After sometime, Jacinta stood up and called to me: “Can’t you see all those highways and roads and fields full of people, who are crying with hunger and have nothing to eat? And the Holy Father in a church praying before the Immaculate Heart of Mary? And so many people praying with him?” Some days later, she asked me: “Can I say that I saw the Holy Father and all those people?” “No! Don’t you see that that’s part of the secret? If you do they’ll find out straight away.” “All right! Then I’ll say nothing at all.”" - Memoirs of Sr. Lucia
