The Lord said to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I put your enemies
under your feet. Matthew 22:44
Why is Russia the Third Rome? What are the errors of Russia? Will Pope Francis consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? What is the hidden message in the Ukrainian flag?
In 1198, as the Mongols began to invade the territory of the Kievan Rus, a bright yellow flame appeared in the blue sky over Pochaev Hill in Ukraine.
Monks in Pochaev were fleeing the Tatar invasion. Kneeling before the flame, the monks discerned the image of the Blessed Mother.
She descended in a pillar of fire and left an imprint of the Blessed Mother’s foot on a rock. A monastery was built on the spot and many miracles were recorded from the water which flowed from it.
The footprint of Our Lady in the rock can still be seen in the Pochaev monastery today.
In the same monastery hangs the icon of Our Lady of Pochaev. This icon was gifted to the monastery in 1559 by a Greek Metropolitan from Constantinople. Over 539 miracles have been attributed to the icon.
The most spectacular miracle associated with the icon occurred during the Turkish invasion of 1675. The local population took refuge in the monastery and prayed for Our Lady of Pochaev’s intervention. She appeared over the monastery protecting it with her blue and white mantle from the arrows of the Turks. She was accompanied by Saint Job of Pochaev and an army of angels wielding swords.
Many referred to Our Lady as the voivode, or warlord, and the hetman, or governor. One of the many etymologies of Mary’s name is rebel. For it is through her that men will rebel against Satan’s tyranny.
A famous Russian ballad tells the story:
Oh the Evenstar rose,
Over Pochaev it stood,
In the distance, a proud Turkish horde gathered,
encompassing the Lavra like a black cloud.
Turks and Tatars besieged the gates,
to make war on the monastery, to invade,
‘Our Lady of Pochaev will save us!’
the Christians hoped and prayed.
Father Zalilo rose from his cell,
With tears he was crying:
“Save O Mother of God! Save them!
The monastery is dying!”
She came! She came! The Mother of God!
She eclipsed the sun,
She sent back their bullets, and the Turks she smote,
The monastery she saved, the Christians had won.
As Christian peoples all,
we rededicate our lives to God,
and Our Lady of Pochaev,
forever will we laud.
Few in the West have ever heard about the Footprint of Pochaev; fewer still know anything about the history of Russia. The history of Ukraine is the history of Russia. The Russian nation was formed in Kiev. Could Ukraine be the site where Our Lady crushes the head of the Serpent?
Russia as the Third Rome
Russia, as a Christian civilization-state, begins with the baptism of Vladimir the Great in 987. In 988, Vladimir urged his subjects to seek baptism. Thousands were baptized in the Dnieper River. Kiev has always been the seat of the Rus. Anyone who suggests otherwise knows nothing about the borderland, the periphery of Russia, Ukraine.
In his article ‘On the Historical Unity of Ukrainians and Russians’ President Putin explains that Russia is essentially triune: Velikorossiya(Greater Russia) Belorossiya( White Russia) and Malorossyia( Small Russia, Ukraine). All three countries are Russian, though each is distinct.
Putin admits that Ukraine has been part of a tug of war between Russia in the East and the Poles, Lithuanians, and Germans in the West.
In the apparitions of Fatima, Portugal in 1917, Our Lady warned that if the world did not turn away from sin, Russia would “spread its errors throughout the world.” The errors of Russia were not just the communist revolution that was about to take place that year, but the errors of materialism and atheism in general.
But the first great error of Russia was the refusal to be subject to the authority of the Pope as vicarius Christi.
Another error of Russia which has spread among traditional Catholic circles is the idea that if you have a valid Latin mass, all will be well.
The Russian orthodox church is impressive in its external forms, with much pomp, ceremony and genuine reverence, but that does not change nor expiate fundamental errors of doctrine. The true Church is the true deposit of faith.
In the twentieth century, it was of course the errors of Lenin, Bakunin and Trotsky but the latter’s errors had the deepest impact in forming what we nowadays refer to as the ‘Left.’
These errors have spread throughout the world, subtended by a long list of charlatans and pseudo-philosophers from Darwin to Dawkins.
In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, many Russians emigrated to the United States, bringing their errors with them. American linguist Noam Chomsky is a good example. His father William was a Talmudic scholar and linguist. Noam simply carried on his father’s ideas, but in a new form: petty-bourgeois leftism, or “activism” as they like to call it. The kind of activism that allows you to remain teaching in a respectable university your whole life while being called ‘America’s most important thinker’ by the New York Times.
Just a few months ago, Chomsky said that people who refuse Big Pharma inoculations should be put in concentration camps. Ultimately, that is the only idea for which history will remember Chomsky.
Saul Alinsky is another example of Russia spreading her errors. The guru of Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, Alinsky is the architect of the woke American left today.
Alinsky will be remembered for this:
“Lest we at least forget an over the shoulder acknowledgement to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (And who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins, or which is which, the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom.”
Who can doubt that now? So what is the meaning of this tragedy in Russia? I am reluctant to say Ukraine because there is no such entity; there is only the triune Russia.
Under Emperor Constantine Rome split in two. The eastern capital of the empire was Constantinople. In the fifth century A.D., the Western Roman Empire fell. But the Eastern Roman Empire remained.
Before the Russians converted to Christianity in the tenth century, Vladimir the Great had sent emissaries to Latin Christendom in the West and Greek or Byzantine Christendom in the East. The emissaries reported that they had never experienced anything more beautiful than the Byzantine rite.
Russia converted and adopted Byzantine traditions. Ivan the Terrible (1530-1584) gave himself the title of Caesar (Czar)of the Russians. Henceforth, Russia would be to Byzantium what France was to Roman Catholicism, namely the army of Christendom.
The Russian czars adopted the symbol of the double-headed eagle from the Late Byzantine Empire.
If Byzantium was the second Rome, Russia would be the third. French President Emmanuel Macron has had the closest contact of any Western leader with President Putin since the beginning of the Ukraine crisis.
Symbolically here, we should have in mind the origins of the Great Schism in the Catholic Church when the Franks began to exert their authority over the Italian peninsula, to the chagrin of the Byzantine exarchates.
The geopolitical struggles between the Franks and the Byzantines were exacerbated by the crisis of authority between the Pope as Bishop of Rome and the Patriarch of the ‘New Rome’ Constantinople. In 1054, Eastern Catholics began to call themselves, the true Christians, those who had the ‘correct dogma’, orthodox.
Although disputes concerning the nature of the Blessed Trinity are fundamental to understanding the difference between Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism, the fundamental error of the Third Rome is the subordination of the Church to the State.
In Byzantium, the emperor had more power to appoint and depose the Patriarch of the Church.
In the reconstituted Holy Roman Empire of the West, the question of papal supremacy was dramatically resolved in 1077 when King Henry IV prostrated before Pope Saint Gregory VII at Canossa Castle. Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV was clothed in yellow robes to signify his penance.
There was much controversy at the time concerning the validity of Pope Gregory VII’s papacy. He was the first pope to be elected through public acclamation. Today there is something of a mass movement calling for Archbishop Vigano to be pope.
One wonders if the word Ukraine which means ‘periphery’ in Russian denotes the site where man’s historical and terrestrial battle with evil crosses over into the spiritual realm, if Ukraine is not, in a sense, humanity’s final frontier.
For Halford Mackinder, the father of geopolitics, Ukraine was the essential strategic point dividing the Eurasian landmass from the European peninsula. It has therefore always been essential for Anglo-Ameican interests to divide the World-Island at that point.
But I am more interested here in exploring the meaning of the Ukrainian crisis in terms of eschatology than geopolitics, given the fact that Pope Francis will, Deo volente, this Friday consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The yellow and blue cult
Many analysts have noted that the blue and yellow theme actually began in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdowns. Most of the official signs in the UK and Ireland, for example, were in blue and yellow. Is it a coincidence or is there something spiritual happening here? This video documents just how ubiquitous blue and yellow were over the past year throughout the mainstream media reports on Covid-19.
The evidence strongly suggests that the organisers of the covid cult anticipated the Urkaine war two years in advance.
In Ireland in particular, where deranged Catholic priests have attacked the Russian embassy and called for violence against Russians, it is as though blue and yellow have become the symbols of a pernicious cult. Ireland is now set to welcome 200,000 migrants from Ukraine, more than any other country in Europe.
Freemasonry is often referred to as the ‘Blue Lodge of Freemasonry’. For the Freemasons, blue represented spirituality fraternity, and the ‘Great Architect’ of the universe. But the god of Freemasonry is none other than Satan. The yellow compass and ruler represents the pride and perversion of Satan, who is incapable of repentance for his rebellion against God.
The colour of perdition
In the sixteenth century, the Catholic Church set up an Inquisition to try heretics and conversos. Conversos were Jews who pretended to be Christians but practised the Talmudic cult in secret. Many of them had infiltrated the Church and State, corrupting society. Most of what people think they know about the Spanish Inquisition is a lie, written by Protestants, liberals and Jews.
The Church should set up another Holy Inquisition, for there are far too many Satanists today sullying the Mystical Body of Christ. During the Holy Inquisition, heretics and conversos were dressed in yellow robes called Sanbenitos.
The yellow served to remind them of the fires of hell. During the coronavirus (poisoned crown) lockdown, blue and yellow were the colours of our new enslavement under the Kingdom of the Poisoned Crown.
Curiously, the one Western country that didn’t succumb to the coronavirus tyranny was Sweden with its yellow cross in a blue field!
But the blue and yellow theme stayed once the restrictions were lifted. This time is what a country whose name etymologically denotes the human condition in our time. Man has crossed the frontier and entered the abyss. And what people doth this brave new world have in it!
But yellow is not always meaningful. For example, the yellow in the Vatican flag simply refers back to the colours of the Roman Senate. We’ll come back to this later.
Comedians, ventriloquists, transvestites and catamites, Ukraine is a vast post-modern, post-human nightmare where actors who play presidents on screen jump out of the TV sets and start giving orders.
It’s a world where neo-Nazis join hands with Zionists, all driven by an ebullient hatred of Russia.
Ukraine is the anti-inquisition — all the sane and honest men are being tried by the Devil.
The colour of faith
What about the blue? If yellow is the colour of our shame, of penitence and of the fires of hell, then blue is the colour of true religion. Blue is the colour of our hope.
In his Modern Catholic Dictionary, Father Hardon says, ‘ It indicates constancy, fidelity, genuineness, and aspiration. It is the colour especially associated with the Blessed Virgin.’ Blue is vita dulcedo spes nostra, our life our sweetness and our hope.
“Blue is the invisible becoming visible. Blue has no dimensions, it is beyond the dimensions of which other colours partake,” wrote artist Yves Klein who dedicated his entire oeuvre to the Marian hue.
The philosopher Gaston Bachelard said, ‘ D’abord il n’y a rien, ensuite il y a un rien profond, puis une profondeur bleue- at first there’s nothing, then a depth of nothingness, then a profundity of blue.’
Will man, enslaved by irrationality, finally take a leap of faith, from nothingness into the blue? Could salvation come, so to speak, out of the blue?
The Blue Army of Mary
In 1918 in Bolshevik Russia, one of the most important icons in Russian Christianity was lost: Our Lady of Kazan. The icon was found in 1970 by Our Lady’s Blue Army, an organisation dedicated to spreading the message of Fatima around the world.
It was kept in Fatima and was meant to be returned to Russia after it was converted to the true faith. But it was given to Pope John II in 1993, who returned it to the Orthodox church.
The Red Army of Joseph
Dating from the 13th century, the Kazanskaya was often carried into battle by Russian priests accompanying the soldiers.
Before the battles of Leningrad and Stalingrad, soldiers prayed before a copy of the Icon of Kazan and priests carried it into battle. There are stories of German soldiers seeing visions of the Blessed Mother in the sky over Stalingrad.
According to his bodyguard Yu Soloviev, Stalin had a copy of the Icon of Kazan in his office in the Kremlin before which he would pray alone.
From the mid-30s, Soviet policy towards religion began to change. Churches began to open and the Soviet government sought an understanding with the Orthodox hierarchy.
On 4 September 1943 Stalin met with the patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Serius Stragorsky and promised full government support for the Church. By 1944, Easter was again celebrated in the Soviet Union.
Religious persecution in Russia
Much has been written about the persecution of Christians by the Bolsheviks. But few realise that one of the reasons Pope Benedict XV didn’t consecrate Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart was because he believed the Communists would help the Catholic Church gain a foothold in Orthodox Russia.
In fact, Lenin was initially good for Catholicism. Catholics were allowed hold Corpus Christi processions for the first time under Lenin. It was only when the question of loyalty to the state became tense with the rise of Fascism in Europe, and the Vatican’s friendly policy towards those regimes, that the Church began to denounce oppression.
Oppression of priests in Russia did take place in the USSR but the account of the Jesuit Father Edmond Walsh is extremely unreliable. Walsh would go on to found the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. One can see the fruits of Walsh’s labour in the evil deeds of that school’s graduates: Corrupt CIA director George Tenet, Bill Clinton, Madelaine Albright and Carrol Quigley.
One could argue that by the pontificate of Benedict XV, the principal error of Russia, that of materialism had already entered the Church. Benedict XIV could have carried out the consecration but opted for geopolitical manoeuvrings, then blamed the Bolsheviks when the dubious activities of the Jesuit ‘Black International’ were exposed.
For those who believe I’m being harsh on the Catholic Church, is there any evidence anywhere of Father Walsh getting into trouble with US authorities for standing up for the working man and the poor against capitalist interests?
There were, however, Jesuit scholars at the time who believed that what the Soviets were trying to achieve was closer to the Catholic social vision than anything in the West. For example, Father Devane in Ireland admired the Soviet youth movements which promoted sport, fitness and patriotism.
It is perhaps possible that had Stalin, or the ‘Priest’ as his comrades called him, not been murdered by a Jewish doctor’s plot in 1953, Russia would have converted earlier. But if Stalin was already reverting to the faith in the 1940s, the Vatican was going in the opposite direction.
In 1950, Pope Pius XII published Humani Generis which purported to defend doctrine against the errors of modernism but in fact did the opposite: It allowed for the possibility of corporeal evolution. Although this is denied by his defenders today, it opened the door for Teilard du Chardin’s mystical obscurantism and the subsequent evolutionist apostasy of Vatican II modernists.
The Sixth Age of the Church
Why is the Immaculate Heart of Mary important? When Jesus appeared to St. Marguerite Mary Alacoque in the seventeenth century he asked for France to be consecrated by King Louis XIV to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This consecration was never performed. One hundred years later, King Louis XVI was beheaded. The nation of the Franks was instrumental in the resurrection of Western Rome as the Holy Roman Empire. Since the baptism of King Clovis in 594 A.D., France had been the ‘bras armé de l’Église’ the armed battalion of the Church.
Jesus told Saint Lucia of Fatima that he required the Pope to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary so that the world would honour her as the flesh in which the Word became man.
When Christ is taken down from the cross, Mary experiences the sixth of her seven sorrows. But Mary’s sixth sorrow corresponds to her sixth joy in Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit. Jesus calls the Holy Spirit the Paraclete, which is Greek for consoler. The sixth age of the church will be the age of consolation and global confraternity.
Father Holzhauser in his book ‘The Seven Ages of the Church’ showed that the seven Asian churches mentioned in the Book of Apocalypse represent the seven ages of the Catholic Church. Each age has a particular theme. Following Holzhauser’s scheme, we are currently coming to the end of the fifth age, which corresponds to the church of Sardis.
Sardis was renowned for its wealth, as a city of Lydia where money was invented. One thinks here of the Vatican’s collusion with the City of London and the District of Columbia. To explain the possible meaning of the book of Apocalypse for the Church, Patrick Coon writes:
‘The Church going underground is very fitting for the end of the Fifth Age of The Church as prophesied by the Venerable Father Holzhauser.
Apoc. 3 1-5 : “And to the angel of the church of Sardis, write: These things saith he, that hath the seven spirits of God, and the seven stars: I know thy works, that thou hast the name of being alive: and thou art dead [Modernism, Vatican II, “Rome has lost the Faith”]. Be watchful and strengthen the things that remain, which are ready to die [Catholic Tradition and the Remnant]. For I find not thy works full before my God [1962 Missal of Archbishop Bugnini and comfortable Trads who have left the field of combat]. Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe, and do penance [Archbishop Lefebvre passing on what he received, remaining Trads who have not left the field of combat]. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee [Trads compromising with Apostate Rome]. But thou hast a few names in Sardis, which have not defiled their garments: and they shall walk with me in white, because they are worthy [Resistance Bishops, Priests, and Faithful remaining in the field of combat and going underground]. He that shall overcome, shall thus be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels [Gloria Nostra est in Cruce, Deo Gratias].’
The sixth age will bring the church of Philadelphia, of brotherly love. Holzhauser believed this would be the golden age of the church corresponding to man as God conceived him, created on the sixth day. It has been Satan’s aim ever since creation to prevent man from entering into the seventh day where he enters into communion with Christ.
Holzhauser said that the sixth age would reconcile faith and reason, science and religion. In other words, the sixth age will be technological (in the true sense of the word) rather than technocratic.
If we look honestly at the sacrilege and apostasy of the Church since Vatican II, it would be dishonest to dismiss the validity of the Sedevacantist argument that since Catholics must be obedient to the Pope, and that since the Pope as vicarius Christi cannot err, one can only conclude that the seat of Peter is empty. It is, of course, not a satisfactory hypothesis.
But sedevacantists do not claim it is satisfactory. The truth is that we simply do not understand what is happening to the Church because no one has a full comprehension of the mystical body of Christ.
The Vatican II apologists spoke of a ‘new evangelisation’ and a ‘new Pentecost’. Yet the opposite occurred. Now Pope Francis is talking about fraternity. What if God allowed Vatican II to happen so that the deeper meaning of a new Pentecost and a new age of confraternity would come about through the Second Passion of the Church?
Several attempts have been made to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. They have all failed. In each of those speech acts something essential was missing. Pope John Paul II consecrated the world to Mary in 1984 but failed to mention Russia in particular. He followed Pope Pius XII who consecrated the world in 1942 but failed to mention Russia.
Satan does not want the Blessed Mother to have the deeds to Russia. For he knows that Russian devotion to the Theotokos is deep. And more babies are murdered in their mother’s wombs in Russia than in any other nation on earth. Russia is in theory a Christian civilisation-state and the Virgin Mary is historically and mystically its Tzarina, but the consecration of Russia must be performed correctly for Russia to become fully Christian.
Pope Francis has promised to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on 25 March. But Our Lady did not ask for Ukraine. Does it matter? She also asked that the Pope order all the bishops of the world to join him in the consecration at the same time. Pope Francis has ‘invited’ the bishops to do this. Is that an order?
Is Pope Francis even the real pope? Is he an anti-pope? Is the pontifical seat vacant?
The Pope is now saying he will consecrate ‘humanity’ and especially Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. But she did not ask for the consecration of humanity! Why can’t these arrogant men just do what they are told! Are they all that stupid and incompetent that they cannot follow simple orders? Or is this going to be another farce? If it is a farce, the blue sky may turn yellow as fire falls from heaven. This has been foretold by many prophecies.
If the consecration is validly carried out, Russia cannot submit to the authority of the Pope if he does not defend the true faith. Will Rome correct its own ‘errors of Russia’ and restore, so to speak, ‘orthodoxy’?
Traditional Catholics fear that if the consecration is botched again, it may cause many to lose faith. If Pope Francis were an anti-pope, then performing another faulty consecration would serve to mock Our Lady of Fatima, and traditional Catholics devoted to her.
Father Kramer says that President Putin asked Pope Francis to consecrate Russia in 2013 but the Roman pontiff refused.
Is Putin really a Christian? Is he a Freemason? He often looks like both. He appears to be, as Churchill said of Russia, ‘a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma’.
The crisis in Ukraine is all about the construction of a European superstate. Xavier Solana said that the EU is a ‘laboratory for a world government’. Blue and yellow are the colours of the flag of the EU world-state.
But no man will defy the will of heaven. The inspiration for the EU flag came from French Catholic Arsène Heitz. The blue background and crown of twelve stars symbolise Our Lady of the Apocalypse.
If Russia is consecrated humanity will enter what father Holzhauser called the sixth age of the Church, the age of Philadelphia, of universal brotherhood.
Could, by some twist of providence, Pope Francis’ recent Masonic encyclical Fratteli Tutti, be pointing in that direction?
Will we witness what Pope Francis likes to call a “surprise of the Holy Spirit”?
Reflexologists say you can tell everything about the human body from the feet. In scripture, the washing of feet represents the ultimate act of humility and charity: Christ washes the feet of the apostles.
Pope Francis has caused much scandal by breaking the rules of feet washing. He has made a point of appearing to be a great friend of the poor and needy –prison inmates, migrants and handicapped people etc.
This Franciscan persona contrasts markedly with the man who often seems most at home in the company of atheistic billionaires and globalist dictators.
John Allen told CNN that “Francis is so identified in the popular mind with this kind of love for ordinary people, and in particular, love for broken and wounded people, that have a special need for a taste of God’s love that this kind of thing offers them, that it has become, if I can say this, one of the signature touches of his papacy.”
I am not trying to convince you that might sometimes be such a thing as approximates to a modicum of truth about anything on CNN! But I am suggesting we keep an open mind. That does not mean forgetting everything Archbishop Vigano has revealed about this pontificate’s crimes.
We are under no illusions about Jorge Bergoglio. But the devil himself could consecrate Russia if God commanded him.
Perhaps we are in the border space between ratio et fides, reason and faith. The world has become a hellish ukraina. What if the Russian monks on Mount Ponchaev saw the future? What if the yellow flame in the blue sky portended the fire come down from heaven and the Sacred foot that crushes the head of the Serpent?
We do not deserve peace. We deserve fire from heaven. But on 25 March Catholics will dress spiritually in penitential yellow, grab their rosary beads and pray in blue.
Demonologists say that when Our Lady appears, she always shows her feet. This goes back to the story of the Queen of Sheba in the Old Testament. King Solomon looked at her feet to make sure he was not being deceived by a demon. In the false apparitions at Garabandal and Medjugorje, the demons disguised as Our Lady never show their feet.
Our Lady’s footprint in Pochaev is the ‘carbon footprint’ the oligarchs really fear. We are told in Genesis 3:15 ‘I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel’.
The mystic blessed Elena Aiello prophesied that Russia would invade Europe and place its flag over the Vatican. Ever since the formation of the Vatican in 1929, it has been downhill for the Church.
In fact, many believe the Vatican City forms a trinitarian ruling state with the City of London and the District of Columbia. The yellow and white flag of the Vatican is said to go back to the Roman Senate. It apparently doesn’t have any religious significance. It is perhaps appropriate for the Vatican today, which is the driving force of the godless New World Order.
The Vatican is not the Church. The Church is the mystical body of Christ; the Vatican is a political and administrative entity that only dates from 1929. In many respects, it has become a demonic entity tormenting the Church.
The Russian flag of White, Blue and Red is more apposite for a Church of the true faith. The white represents frankness and nobility, the blue stands for fidelity and chastity and the red for courage and charity. If the devils in the Vatican mock heaven again with a botched consecration, then Russia’s historical task will be to resurrect the Roman Catholic Church. That will only come about through world war.
For now, blue and yellow should remind us of Our Lady and penance. But soon, once the Great Tribulation starts, the Marian blue will be joined by the red blood of sacrifice and martyrdom.
