Remember Quito!

In this festive day, I know many of you will be having the same concerns that I have; the same ominous thoughts and dark premonitions as we see the Barque of Peter in the hands of the pirates.

It is not, it cannot be a truly serene Christmas when abortionist Proto-lesbian post-Christian nuns are declared fine specimens of Catholicism even as perfectly orthodox, thriving, vibrant orders are persecuted, and when the very Pope spits heresies every second day, and stupidities every single day.

It can never be a truly serene Christmas. If the Church is so afflicted, it cannot but have an effect on us. But on this day, I invite you to remember the Blessed Virgin of Quito.

The phase we are going through was the object of that particular apparition. In the same way as the Blessed Virgin warned us, she also gave us the priceless serenity of knowing that all this must not lead us to despair, or to doubt the Church's Indefectibility. This crisis comes announced from the highest places. It appeared exactly when it was announced, and it is unfolding before us exactly as it was predicted. If you believe in this apparition – as I do – then you must unavoidably believe all of it, including the fact that a moment will come when all seems lost; and who knows how long we will have to suffer before that moment comes! Motus in fine velocior, they say. It seems that this is happening, too.

We do not know when the madness will reach its zenith, and it would be very optimistic to think that it will be with Francis. We might have decades of suffering before us. But at some point, sanity will be restored. At that particular point, and not before. Our prayers can certainly help in mitigating the punishment, but the God-given, amply deserved just punishment will come anyway. Let us pray for a discount, but let us not expect a remission.

I love the Church. I hope I would be able, if tested, to die for Her. For this reason, the reassuring knowledge that all this is part of a plan allowed by God – certainly to punish us for our sins, but with the day of the restoration of sanity already written in heaven – is very consoling to me, a bit in the same way as the Blessed Virgin whispering to my ears that all this will have an end would be infinitely more consoling than simply knowing in abstract that it will be so.

Remember Quito. Never falter in your faith. Never doubt the Indefectibility of the Church. The Barque is in the hand of pirates, but she herself is unsinkable. The Pirates will damage her in every possible way, and many will be those who will throw themselves overboard. But we will stand fast, and wait for the end of the pirates' rule. Francis and his would be trembling now, if they were wise. But they aren't, so they don't. Still, to them will the phrase also apply: nil inultum remanebit.

Do not be afraid, then. Chase away your dark thoughts and your disquieting premonitions, and sink your teeth in the panettone with renewed zeal. Raise the glass with those you love and try as you can, for a few short days, to avoid being sad for this, well, persecution of Catholics by their own shepherds. Celebrate these days with the confidence of a proud Catholic, who knows that the war will be long and messy, but it is won already.

Remember Quito!

A very merry Christmas to you all and to those you love from your very sinful, but always affectionate war zone correspondent.

  1. I had to respond to this because I just wrote a book on St. Hildegard, interpreting her vision of the five beasts representing the last days. It’s almost exactly the same as your description of the message of the apparition in Quito.

    I also wish you a very merry Christmas and thank you for your inspiration to me and to so many others.


    P. S. I would be happy to send you a copy if you give me an address. Just in case you would be interested buying one, wait a week as I found some typos and revised the manuscript for Amazon and takes them a week to update the printing.

  2. A very Merry Christmas to you, Mundabor.

  3. Merry Christmas Mundabor and thank you!

  4. I wish you and your family a holy, peaceful and joyous Christmas as we place our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ in God’s arms.

  5. A very blessed, happy, holy and merry Christmas to you, Mundabor! Keep up the good work for the true Church.

  6. Merry Christmas and love to you too Mundy:+)

  7. Dear M,
    You almost always express what we feel deep down, better than we ever could.
    Please accept our sincere thanks, for your heartfelt efforts to light the darkness, along with our wishes for the Merriest Christmas possible to you and yours- from us and ours.
    🙂 🙂

  8. where can I get the info on the Quito apparition?

  9. this is my first time encountering your site. however, I am pretty familiar with the discussion regarding Pope Francis’ papacy. I made a grievous error one time disagreeing with a Pope whom I judged to be errant in his formal teaching, Pope Paul VI. Conspicuously, Pope Francis (Francis to you) does none of his acrobatics as formal teaching. We, for our part, should be dead sure we meditate closely upon what the Pope offers us. I accept the documents of Vatican II. If you think you must dismiss that Council because it was not doctrinal…then I think you are on shaky ground. Likewise, if you hold that Francis was not legitimately elected due to a cabal of liberal cardinals whom were de-facto excommunicated according to Pope John-Paul II’s conclave regulations…then you are striding onto even thinner ice. Unless Francis formerly errs, how do you have a case? Legitimately electd Popes have had mistresses and children ! I think Francis is laying out a vision of Jesus that deserves close looking at. Certainly his recent excoriation of Curial vices rang pretty true. Or don’t you think so?

    • You are very, very confused and I very much doubt you have read my blog with any attention before writing such bollocks.

      Educate yourself on what this blog’s position is concerning the issues you have mentioned, then comment again, or not.


  10. A blessed and peaceful Christmas,sir,and cast aside all timidity in the New Year

  11. Dear M,
    as you say, all this, too, will pass. Best wishes for the season, and thank you for your most stimulating efforts.

  12. The Glass of blessing is as close and as far as it has been for all ‘pilgrims’. There’s always some hireling ‘spitting heresy’; but there is always a true shepherd, too. Happy Christmas to all. Memory is a blessing in such times.

  13. And a very Blessed Christmas to you and yours. Thank you for your courage and honesty.

  14. Thanks. I really needed that.

  15. Merry Christmas Mundabor, and thanks for your wonderful writing. God bless you in the New Year.
