On the Three Days of Darkness

Many of you are familiar with the prophesied 3 days of darkness. I believe one such writing is inaccurately attributed to Saint Padre Pio.

I am sharing the following prophesies to grab your attention:
* "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."
* On Christmas, 1816 Blessed Elizabeth saw Our Lady, who appeared extremely sad. Upon inquiring why, Our Lady answered, “Behold, my daughter, such great ungodliness.” Blessed Elizabeth then saw “apostates brazenly trying to rip her most holy Son from her arms. Confronted with such an outrage, the Mother of God ceased to ask mercy for the world, and instead requested justice from the Eternal Father. Clothed in His inexorable Justice and full of indignation, he turned to the world.

* “At that moment all nature went into convulsions, the world lost its normal order and was filled with the most terrible calamity imaginable. This will be something so deplorable and atrocious that it will reduce the world to the ultimate depths of desolation.”

* On the feast of Saints Peter and Paul, June 29, 1820, she saw Saint Peter descending from heaven, robed in papal vestments and surrounded by a legion of angels. With his crosier he drew great cross over the face of the earth, separating it into four quadrants. In each of these quadrants, he then brought forth a tree, sprouting with new life. Each tree was in the shape of a cross and enveloped in magnificent light. All the good laity and religious fled for protection underneath these trees and were spared from the tremendous chastisement. “Woe! Woe to those unobservant religious who despise their Holy Rules. They will all perish in the terrible chastisement together with all who give themselves to debauchery and follow the false maxims of their deplorable contemporary philosophy!

* “The sky took on a morbid blue color which terrified everyone who looked at it. A dark wind blew everywhere. An impassioned and mournful shrieking filled the air, like the terrible roar of a fierce lion, and resounded all over the earth in blood curdling echoes.

* “All men and animals brimmed with terror. The entire world convulsed and everyone pitilessly slaughtered one another…

* “When this bloody fight will arrive, the vengeful hand of God will weigh upon these fated ones and with His omnipotence He will chastise the proud for their rashness and shameless insolence. God will use the powers of darkness to exterminate these sectarian, iniquitous and criminal men, who plot to eradicate the Catholic Church, our Holy Mother, by tearing Her up by Her deepest roots, and casting Her on the ground.

Thanks Esther
Clinton and I have gathered most of the equipment we'll need for those days. (Holy water, blessed candles, salt, so far)

Thanks for having the courage to write about this. We're preparing a mailing to our (adult) children regarding the prophecies of Fatima, and all of Mary's apparitions where she urges us to do penance for sinners.

Clinton and I are both offering our present afflictions for the conversion of sinners.

I have heard of this too and have read some of the prophesies about it (and some are VERY scary). I have blessed candles, holy water and various sacramentals just in case. I wouldn't want to be outside!

I ALWAYS have a supply of blessed candles, holy water, and green scapulars. Thanks for the link, Esther; I have not heard anyone talk about this for awhile.

Maryellen: what an inspiration you and Clinton are to me. Thank you dear lady.

Mary and Elena, this used to scare me too. But now I am trying to trust in God's Will in everything. Our home is prepared too: Blessed Salt, Blessed Candles, Holy Water, Brown Scapulars, Miraculous Medals, etc.
