Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich foresaw that Bergoglio would close the churches

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

There are many things in the Mystical Visions of Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich which speak to our days and of our day. One regards what appears to be her seeing the suffering which the Catholic world is now subject to, in the closing of the Churches: a vision the Blessed had which offers us a glimmer of hope:

I saw the fatal consequences of this counterfeit church; I saw it increase; I saw heretics of all kinds flocking to the city.  I saw the ever-increasing tepidity of the clergy, the circle of darkness ever widening.  And now the vision became more extended. I saw in all places Catholics oppressed, annoyed, restricted, and deprived of liberty, churches were closed and great misery prevailed everywhere with war and bloodshed. I saw rude ignorant people offering violent resistance. But this state of things lasted not long.

(From the Life and Visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich: Vol. 2: Visions of May 13, 1820)

  1. I had a conversation with an old friend yesterday. A very good woman, and a devout Catholic. She was confused and depressed about the current situation in the Church. However, when I mentioned Biblical precedent and Catholic prophecy regarding the End Times, the Great Apostasy, the Reign of the Antichrist and Mark of the Beast she became resistant and refused to believe we were in the midst of such occurrences. She still has confidence in Church and political leaders, and said she would certainly line up for the “vaccine” and had no problem receiving a microchip in her hand. One wonders how many other Roman Catholics feel the same way…


  2. I suspect Emmerich meant the churches were completely closed, as in no Mass at all. Also, there is the fact that there are very few wars going on at all worldwide. The tribulation is coming, but we’re not there yet.
