They'll Have No King but Caesar: King Henry of the Cross

This is a book I have been interested in getting.

They'll Have No King but Caesar: King Henry of the Cross - by Helen Tzima Otto PhD

If we were to study carefully the Septuagint (Greek Translation of the Old Testament), we would discover that it differs from the Masoretic (Jewish) Old Testament (which appeared later...) in some very vital details. Based on such discrepancies we can establish that the OT prophets already spoke of two distinct royal messiahs from the House of David. The book provides prophetic and other information to fully identify the second messiah, always according to Christian Eschatology.

 The book also establishes the internal consistency of all the prophecies regarding the Golden Gate in Jerusalem in its Eschatological significance. In fact, it is the royal Messiah who will miraculously enter through it in the proximate future, but this royal Messiah that the Jews expect is a champion of Christianity, par excellence. Also, what should we know about the true origin of those referred to as `Eastern-Jews' in Zionist literature? These and additional highly relevant issues are treated in depth. They are not mere suggestions and speculations, they are established proofs, based on rigorous analysis and treatment of a great wealth of data.

Wikipedia on the Great Monarch: Prophetic Foundations

He will appear at the end of the sixth age of the world, according to Saint Augustine of Hippo's Six Ages of the World. We actually live in the sixth age of the world according to Saint Augustine.

 
Saint Remigius, bishop of Reims and apostle of the Franks, baptised Clovis I, king of the Franks on 24 December 496. This baptism, leading to the conversion of the entire Frankish people to Nicene Christianity, was a momentous success for the Catholic Church and a seminal event in European history. He had had a vision and prophesied that in the distant future, the last monarch who descended from the line of the kings of France, would be revealed and reestablish the Holy Roman Empire at the end of time. This prophecy was related through Hincmar, archbishop of Reims, and Rabanus Maurus Magnentius O.S.B., archbishop of Mainz.

 
Similar prophecies were made by Saint Caesarius of Arles, archbishop of Arles, by monks from the Carthusian monastery of Prémol, Chartreuse Notre-Dame de Prémol at Vaulnaveys-le-Haut, France, by Saint Catald of Taranto, archbishop of Taranto, Italy, and by Saint Angelus of Jerusalem. The prophecy of Saint Caesarius was commented upon by John of Vatiguerro and published in the Mirabilis Liber (1524), and by French priest Jean-Marie Trichaud (1853). The prophecy of the Carthusian monks of Prémol was discovered between 1795 and 1850 and the prophecy of Saint Catald was discovered in 1492.

 
Bartholomew Holzhauser, a German priest and visionary and writer of prophecies, details his coming further and states he will appear in the fifth age of the church in his book Interpretatio Apocalypsis usque ad cap. XV, v. 5. It discusses the seven ages of the Church:

 
  1. the status seminativus or the first age of the Church, from Christ and the Apostles to Pope Linus and Emperor Nero,
  2. the status irrigativus or the second age of the Church, the days of persecution,
  3. the status illuminativus or the third age of the Church, from Pope Sylvester to Leo III,
  4. the status pacifitcus or the fourth age of the Church from Leo III to Leo X,
  5. the status afflictionis et purgativus or the fifth age of the Church, from Leo X to a strong ruler or grand monarch and a holy pope,
  6. the status consolationis of the sixth age of the Church, from that holy pope to the birth of Antichrist,
  7. the status desolationis are the seventh and last age of the Church, from the Antichrist to the end of the world.
According to Holzhauser, we actually live in the fifth age of the Church and are experiencing the transition to the sixth age. Holzhauser further explains his function in these events in his book Visiones, which contains the ten visions of Holzhauser:
  1. de septem animalibus
  2. de una monarchia et duabus sedibus
  3. de s. Michaele archangelo et sedibus
  4. de ecclesia sponsd Dei
  5. de propria persona Jesu
  6. de egressione Danubii
  7. de verme grandi
  8. de conversione Germaniæ
  9. exprobratio vitiorum, exprobratio impœnitentiæ, quomodo revertatur
  10. de duabus personis

Also Pierre cardinal d'Ailly, bishop of Puy, Blessed Hildegard of Bingen O.S.B. and Jérome Bottin O.S.B. made similar prophecies.

 
Modern day prophecies about the Great Monarch were made by Marie Julie Jahenny, mystic and stigmatist of La Fraudais, France, and by Mélanie Calvat and Maximin Giraud, visionaries at La Salette, France.

Wikipedia on the Great Monarch: Apostolic Foundations

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, proclaimed by Pope John Paul II on 15 August 1997 in the Apostolic letter Laetamur Magnoprere, the Catholic beliefs about the end times are addressed in the Profession of faith. An brief introduction of these beliefs can be found on the Holy See's website.

 
Before the return of Christ, a number of conditions have to be fulfilled. They include:
  • The spreading of the "one true Catholic faith" among all corners of the planet and among all people.
  • Recognition of Jesus-Christ as the Messiah and Son of God by all Israel.
  • The Great Apostasy that will shake the faith of many believers. This is a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the Catholic faith. This will be prepared gradually. The supreme form of this religious deception will be that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.

Wikipedia on the Great Monarch: Biblical Foundations

The biblical foundations for the concept of the Great Monarch can be found in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. References in the Old Testament can be found in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel and Zechariah. It is also found in the New Testament. Catholic teaching refers to the 25th chapter of Matthew's Gospel in which Christ says that no one knows the hour or the day, except the Father in Heaven. The Church furthermore teaches that Christ indicated the approximation of these events in the New Testament, when he spoke of signs which would indicate that the end of days was near[citation needed]. Some of these signs include natural disasters, civil problems, and other catastrophes. Of the precise time, however, it will come like a thief in the night.

Wikipedia on the Great Monarch: Basics

The Great Catholic Monarch, also referred to as the Great Monarch, is a concept that has or had a certain place in unofficial Roman Catholic eschatology, mainly as a French monarchist variant of the medieval theme of the Last Roman Emperor. It predicts that in the last times, a last monarch would appear on earth to reestablish the kingdom of France and assume his function as biblical katechon who stalls the coming of the antichrist.

The notion of last Roman Emperor is related to it, as is the notion of the Angelic Pope.

The Great Catholic Monarch also has a counter-revolutionary or restorationist character. He is said to be a future king of a re-united Holy Roman Empire, who will restore the European catholic royalty in the West, destroy the power of heretics and atheistic rebels, and successfully convert many Muslims and Jews to the Roman Catholic faith.

The Great Monarch was very popular in popular folklore until the 18th century Enlightenment. He reappeared in 19th century prophecy when French legitimists believed that the count of Chambord, Henry V of France would be the new king.

Wikipedia on the Great Monarch: Equivalent notions

The notions of great monarch and angelic pope are equivalent to the French grand monarch and saint pape and the German Weltkaiser and Engelpapst.

 
The Great Monarch is conceptually similarly to the Mahdi of Islam in that:
  • Both are conquerors/rulers that unite various peoples.
  • Both live during the rise of antichrist but do not themselves defeat antichrist.
  • Both convert many people to their respective religions.
  • Both prepare the way for the second coming of Jesus Christ.
  • Some of their source belief is exta-scriptural, although the GCM is scriptural (Daniel's "He-Goat" and "king of the greeks"). 
Differences are the GCM defeats the Moslems who have invaded and occupy Europe in the future.

Yves Dupont on the Great Monarch Pt. 8

I recently read a book that gave extensive quotations from original documents which have been preserved in most French Town Halls in towns and villages. The remarkable thing about these documents was the tone as well as the contents. They were written during the reign of Louis XIV, the most autocratic of the French kings. Yet those in authority spoke to their subjects in a friendly and father-like manner, and with the utmost courtesy.

None of the "First and Final Notice", or "Take Notice That ... ", or again, "You are hereby directed to... " and so forth, in the bureaucratic manner familiar to all of us. The subjects were addressed as "My Dear... ", and they were "requested to be so kind as to ...", because "I would be extremely grateful if you would kindly consider this matter", and the closing sentence from the Governor, the Magistrate, or the Landlord, was to draw "the blessing of God upon you and your family"! All the documents were in the same vein; they were written from person to person, not from a nameless and faceless Bureaucracy to an equally nameless and faceless mass of "citizens". Such was the tone. As regards the contents, the documents in question made it obvious that the powers of the "Law" were limited. There was no threat of penalty "for failure to comply", no "$200 fine or 3 months in jail" as we currently see in most official documents. Virtually everybody in our "democratic" days is periodically threatened with "3 months in jail" through the bureaucratic printed matter we all receive.

The Masons, agnostics and atheists who are responsible for the rise of Democracy must, of course, perpetuate the myth that Monarchy means Autocratism. Autocratism presupposes centralisation of powers; the hierarchical structures of a Christian Monarchy is just the opposite, each having certain powers according to his rank in the hierarchy, and each region, province, city, town and village enjoying a measure of genuine Democracy - (the smaller the social unit, the greater that measure is), as taught by St. Thomas Aquinas and, again, by Pius XII. In a modern Democracy, on the contrary, the pyramid of power has been flattened, and hierarchical structures reduced to a minimum. The base of the pyramid has been greatly enlarged - (the allegedly "sovereign" people), and the top has been cut off. The middle layers of the pyramid are represented by a faceless and nameless Bureaucracy.

Let me mention here again that all authority comes from God alone who is the Ultimate Source, and flows downwards through hierarchical structures. This is Church teaching. It is also Church teaching that authority, that is, God's authority, cannot rise upwards from the people for the simple reason that God's authority is not vested in the people. We all know that this teaching is currently disregarded in the Conciliarist Church (which is the Church of Man and Democracy), but not everyone knows that it was disregarded even before Vatican II. Yet it is indeed Church teaching, and it was confirmed by Leo XIII in "Graves de Communi", and again by St. Pius X in "Notre Charge Apostolique" (Letter to the French Bishops). The common source, of course, is the "SUMMA THEOLOGICA" of St. Thomas Aquinas.

Now, since the Great Monarch will be chosen by God and will be a living Saint, it is simply inconceivable that he would want to "dominate" the whole world in the sense now given to "domination". Far from setting up a One-World government, he will undoubtedly set up a Federation of independent nations, each having its own King and its own hierarchical structures in which subsidiarity will be the guiding principle. Moreover, it is quite certain that this arrangement will be sought by the nations themselves so great will his fame be. The only exception, perhaps, will be that of the primitive and pagan peoples whom the Great Monarch will have to subdue. This may be called "colonialism" today, but it will not be then. Indeed, men will have recovered their sanity and the right of Christian nations to rule primitive peoples for their own benefit will be recognised. Christendom, indeed, has a message, a method and a way of life which cannot but benefit the more primitive peoples. This is becoming increasingly evident even today. However de-Christianized the western nations may be, they still have retained something from their Christian heritage. And whatever shortcomings their administration of the former colonies may have been, still, they did maintain order and a measure of justice.

Katanga, Biafra, Sudan, Pakistan, are but a few examples of the evils brought about by an independence given to peoples who are not ready for it. How many millions of these natives have been massacred, or have starved to death, who would still be alive today if the Western presence had not been withdrawn! And why was it withdrawn? Not out of Christian charity but simply on the instigation of the USSR working through UNO and brandishing the standard of political freedom for all. What does political freedom mean to a miscellany of hundreds of different tribes speaking different dialects and having no ethnic cohesion? Very little indeed! Yet, out of such disparity they made what they called a "nation" (the former Belgian Congo is a case in point).

With the withdrawal of the White man) opportunities for employment, efficient administration, law and order were also withdrawn, and chaos and starvation followed. The USSR knew this. But the man-in-the-street in our countries was generally unaware that de-colonisation was one of the avowed aims of Communism in order to create chaos, because chaos is necessary for the advancement of Communism, and the western press did nothing to inform him; on the contrary, the western press merely echoed the Communist ideological shibboleth about political freedom and other democratical myths to which the West is ever receptive.

What a tragedy that such a large number of Catholics, including Bishops and Cardinals and, among them, some occupying the highest posts in the Catholic hierarchy, should have been so deceived by Communist propaganda that they have praised the alleged virtues of de -colonisation and, in some instances, in documents bearing the stamp of the Magisterium! A sign of the times! Did not La Salette and other prophecies say that error and insanity would be found even at the highest levels of the Church? It is quite clear that the Great Monarch to come will hold different views; views diametrically opposed to those of our present leaders in the world and in the Church.

"A King shall come and act contrariwise, the high pulled down and the low raised up high." (Nostradamus)

(He will pull down what has been held as good, and raise up what has been held in contempt, acting in opposition to present standards.)

"He will restore everything." (Holzhauser)

The powerful Monarch, after winning the Birch-Tree Battle, will restore Peace throughout the world. The Birch-Tree Battlehas been described in countless prophecies. It is the turning point which may coincide with the 3 days of darkness, and will mark the collapse of Communism. It was discussed at some length in my previous book "The Coming Chastisement".

"Peace will return when the Lily ascends the Throne again. The land will be very productive." (St. Hildegarde)

"Many wise laws will restore peace." (Orval)

"An era of prosperity follows." (Lehnin)

"Peace and abundance shall return to the world." (St. Bridget)

"And the earth shall enjoy peace and prosperity." (St. Bridget)

"And peace shall reign over the whole earth." (Holzhauser)

"This shall re-establish a peace and prosperity without precedent." (St. John-Mary Vianney, Cur‚ of Ars, 19th Century)

"O sweetest peace! Thy fruits will multiply until the End of Time!" (St. Caesar)

Peace after the conversion of Russia; this is exactly what Our Lady told the children at Fatima in 1917. I am not covering the Fatima apparitions in this article because they are fairly well known already, and many excellent books are available, whilst there are few concerning the more ancient prophecies.

At the close of the period of peace and prosperity, the ageing Monarch will go to Jerusalem again in an attempt to check the rising power of Anti-Christ.

"He will at length lay down his Crown in Jerusalem." (Cataldus)

"He will go to Jerusalem, and lay down his Sceptre and Crown on Mount Olivet. Thus shall come the end of the Christian Roman Empire." (Bl. R. Maurus, 9th Century)

"He will finally go to Jerusalem and lay down his Sceptre and Crown upon the Mount of Olives. Immediately afterwards,Antichrist will come." (Monk Adso, 10th Century)

"He shall give up the ghost at Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives." (St. Augustine, 5th Century)

"At the end of his most glorious reign, he shall go to Jerusalem, and shall lay down his Crown and Sceptre on the Mount of Olives." (St. Remy, 5/6th Century)

Crown and Sceptre are symbols of authority. By surrendering his Crown and Sceptre on the amount of Olives, the Great Monarch will acknowledge this gift from God, as if saying: "My Lord and my God, my mission is ended; here is the Authority which Thou hast graciously given me."

Regina Coeli Ora pro nobis!

The End

Yves Dupont on the Great Monarch Pt. 7

HIS DEEDS

"Russia, Sweden, and the whole North shall fight against France, Spain, Italy, and the whole South led by a powerful Prince." (Jasper the Peasant, 18th Century)

"He shall be a great captain." (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century)

"The Great Monarch will be at war till the age of forty." (Cataldus)

" ... who shall attain to so high a power ... " (Nostradamus)

"He shall be in command of seven kinds of soldiers against three in the region of the Birch-trees." (Mentz, 19th Century)

" ... feared by his foes." (Nostradamus)

"He shall count his victories by his enterprises; he shall drive the enemy out of France." (Mentz, 19th Century)

"He will assemble great armies and expel tyrants from his Empire." (Cataldus, 5th Century)

"The powerful Monarch, who is sent from God, will uproot every Republic." (Ven. B. Holzhauser, 17th Century)

"He will go through all Europe with a powerful army, uproot every Republic, and exterminate all rebels." (Gekner, 17th Century)

"He will overcome the German Ruler." (Cozensa, 14th Century)

"The Sovereign and the Gallic people shall knock down the renegades who shall shake with fright." (Merlin the Bard)

"He shall govern France." (Votin, 15th Century)

"France shall first be yoked by this King. Britain shall humbly cast herself at his knees. Italy...will contribute to him her languishing right hand." (Sibylla Tiburtina)

"He shall be made King of Greece." (Cataldus, 5th Century)

"There will rise in Gaul a King of the Greeks, the Franks and the Romans." (Liber Mirabilis, 16th Century, quoting an old prophecy)

"He will set England aright and drive out heresy ... He will appoint three Lords to rule the Kingdom of England." (Mother Shipton, 16th Century)

"He shall be the last King over England." (Merlin the Bard (British))

"He will join the Lion and the White Flower." (i.e. unite England and France). (Orval, 13th Century)

"In the last days a very pious King shall reign over our Great Spain." (St. Isidore of Seville, 7th Century)

"The angelic Pope shall place an imperial crown on his head." (Busto, 15th Century)

"He shall reign over the entire ancient Roman Empire." (Remy, 5th Century)

" ... by whom the ancient glory of the Empire shall be restored." "He shall be Emperor of Europe." (Aystinger)

" ... whom God will choose to rule over Europe." (J. von Bourg, 19th Century)

"(He and the Holy Pontiff) shall obtain dominion over the whole world." (St. Francis de Paola, 15th Century)

"This Prince shall extend his dominion over the whole world." (St. Caesar, 6th Century)

Is this the One-World government which is currently advocated by Leftist elements? Most definitely not. The One-World government will not come about until the revelation of the Man of Sin who, with the Jewish nation fawning at his feet, will impose his tyranny upon the whole world. The "dominion" in question here will not take the form of a centralised autocratic government. Centralisation is the very opposite of the principle of subsidiarity which the Church and every genuine Catholic monarch has always supported. Subsidiarity, to be sure, does not exclude supreme authority, or arbitration, but it is undoubtedly the antithesis of autocratism. The word itself is comparatively new, but the principle has always been upheld by the Church. To say that a great Catholic Monarch chosen by God would impose such a form of government would be as absurd as saying that a Communist Dictator would suddenly encourage the practice of the Catholic religion in his States! True, there have been autocratic Monarchs in the long history of Christendom, but these monarchs were not really Catholic in any true sense of the word, and even many of the so-called autocratic Monarchs were much more liberal - in the true sense of the word - than the Liberals who have instituted Democracy with its all-encompassing Bureaucracy.

Yves Dupont on the Great Monarch Pt. 6

HIS WORK FOR THE CHURCH

"He will crush the foes of Christianity." (St. Methodius, 4th Century)

"He will assist the Pope in the reformation of the world." (Caesar, 6th Century)

"He will put out all heresies." (Merlin the Bard, 7th Century)

"The French King will restore the true Pope." (Merlin)

"He shall capture Milan, Lombardy, and the three Crowns." (A'Beckett, 12th Century)

" ... by whom the decayed estate of the Church shall be reformed." (Magdeburg Chronicle)

"A Prince ... who shall reform the Church." (Aystinger the German)

The work of the Great Monarch must not be viewed as an encroachment of the Temporal over the Spiritual, as a meddling of the State in Church affairs; besides being a Saint and chosen by God, he will be obedient unto the Pope in everything. All the reforms which he will carry out in the Church will be made with the assent off nay, at the very request of the Pope - witness the following passage:
"Having need of a powerful temporal assistance, the Holy Pontiff will ask for the co-operation of the generous Monarch of France." (Abbot J. Merlin, 13th Century)

"By his means the nation's religion and laws shall have an admirable change." (Bishop Ageda, 12th Century)

"He shall restore the apostolic discipline." (St. John of Capistrano 15th Century)

"He shall reform the Church of God." (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century)

"He will crush the enemies of the Pope." (D. Pareus, 17th Century)

" ... giving the Church her pristine prominence." (Nostradamus)

"The King of Blois raises again the Papal Tiara." (Caesar)

"This Prince shall help him (the Holy Pontiff) in every way." (Vatiguerro, 13th Century)

"(And I saw that) he placed his hand in the Pontiff's hand." (Premol)

Yves Dupont on the Great Monarch Pt. 5

Yves Dupont was one of my favorite writers of Catholic prophecy. His book "Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement" is one of my go-to books on the topic.
HIS CAMPAIGNS

"He will travel to Rome" (Hilarion, 15th Century)

"Shall make his sail spring forth" (Nostradamus, 16th Century)

"Greece he will invade and be made King thereof." (Cataldus, 5th Century)

"He will restore the Church of Santa Sophia (in Constantinople)." (St. Bridget, 14th Century)

"He shall fight in Syria and win the Holy Cross." (Old Scottish)

"He shall recover the Land of Promise." (Aystinger)

"He will regain Holy Land after terrible wars in Europe." (Telesphorus de Cozensa, 11th Century)

"He will conquer England." (Cataldus, 5th Century)

("Invade Greece" and "conquer England" must not be understood with the modern and unpleasant connotation that these terms now have. This Emperor will be anything but "imperialist". It means, in effect, that he will go to England to help the English people out of their Communist enslavement, and he will land in Greece to expel the Mohammedans. All this will be made clear later in this article.

" ... will pursue Libyan race from Hungary as far as Gibraltar." (Nostradamus)

" ... away shall drive the strange race Arabic." (Nostradamus)

(At this stage, may I caution against dismissing the idea of a Mohammedan invasion in Europe as extravagant. I discussed this point in my first book: the Mohammedan invasion is mentioned in an exceedingly large number of prophecies, and the prophecies are true. The invasion will be made possible because,

(a) Soviet Russia, the Beast of the Earth, will give Mohammed, the Beast of the Sea, all the military support she can, hoping thereby to avoid a direct involvement of herself in Western Europe;
(b) because Western Europe will be in a state of utter chaos at the close of murderous civil wars.

It was just as "extravagant" to speak of the "Revolt of the Algerians in 1938 when Algeria was regarded as being an extension of metropolitan France, but the revolt did come to pass in the sixties, and Algeria is now independent.)

"The Great Monarch ... will conquer the (Middle) East." (Pareus, 17th Century)

"Cyprus, the Turks and Barbarians he will subdue."(Cataldus, 5th Century)

"The Eagle will also invade the Mohammedan countries." (St. Bridget, 14th Century)

"He shall destroy the Jewish and Mohammedan sects." (St. Bridget)

"He shall destroy the Mohammedan sect and the rest of the infidels." (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century)

"The Empire of the Mohammedans will be broken up (by him)." (Ven. Holzhauser, 17th Century)

"He shall subdue to his dominion the Mohammedan Empire" (Gekner, 17th Century)

"He shall reign over the House of Agar, and shall possess Jerusalem." (Isidore of Seville,, 7th Century)

(Agar was an Egyptian bondwoman in the service of Sarah, wife of Abraham who was barren. She bore Abraham a son called Ishmael.)

"He shall wrestle the Kingdom of the Christians from Ishmael, and conquer it from the Saracens. None of the Saracens shall be able to prevail."
(Liber Mirabilis, 16th Century)

(Ishmael was sent back to Egypt with Agar his mother when Sarah finally bore Abraham a son called Isaac. Ishmael is the ancestor of the Arabic people; Isaac, the ancestor of the Ishraelites (or Israelites). Both Ishmaelites and Ishraelites (or Ismaelites and Israelites) are issued from Abraham. But the Ismaelites must be regarded as inferior (despite current illusions about human equality) for at least two reasons, (a) they are descended from a bondwoman who was later sent away as unwanted; (b) God made an alliance with Abraham and Isaac, his son. This does not mean, however, that the Israelis are justified in dispossessing and driving out the Palestinian Arabs from the land of their birth.

As a matter of fact, the Israelites repudiated their alliance with God the day they crucified Our Lord, and what they are doing now, against both Christians and Arabs, shows that the old Talmudic dream is being gradually implemented. In the present Israel-Arab conflict, therefore, we have much sympathy for the Arabs.

Yves Dupont on the Great Monarch Pt. 4

THE GREAT MONARCH
One of the surest facts emerging from this study is the rise of the great Christian King who will set up a new social order upon the ruins of Democracy and Communism. It is simply impossible to elude this conclusion. A few secondary facts emerge also: Communism will not converge and merge with Democracy through dialogue and mutual compromise. Nor will it be defeated by Democracy in a Third World War. Communism will achieve its aim without a global nuclear war. The Western Democracies will break down from inside and will surrender without a fight or, infighting does take place here and there, it will not be able to contain the Russian divisions for more than a few days.

We can pause here for a moment and reflect how such a thing will become possible. It will become possible because of the Munich spirit of the Western Democracies. The USSR is strong militarily, but weak otherwise; its economy is unsound, its capacity for industrial production is limited, its technological know-how is wanting, and it is almost permanently hampered by food shortages. No war can be waged under such conditions. The US government is seeing to it that these limitations are removed.

After squandering billions of dollars on various "aid" programmes, the US economy began to totter. Those dollars, now in the hands of international financiers, were "loaned" in 1972 to the USSR through Swiss Banks. The USSR immediately put them back unto the market, thus precipitating the devaluation of the US dollar in February 1973. Then came the "grain deal": the USA sold its vast reserves at a loss to the USSR in order to relieve their food shortage, and this sent cereal prices soaring in the USA.

Finally, there was the Nixon-Brezhnev meeting, and the technological assistance which the USA has agreed to give to the USSR. Such insanity has to be true to be believed. If it was related in a political novel, the critics would rightly remark that the author had made a serious "plot error". But we are not dealing here with works of fiction, we are dealing with facts, and the insanity of these facts surpasses anything imaginable.

Such is the Munich spirit of the US government and, being what it is, the USSR won't even have to wage a global war; an ultimatum at the opportune moment will suffice or, if there is no ultimatum, unofficial diplomatic pressures will eventually bring the USA into the orbit of the USSR.

Communism will overcome the West, but it will eventually itself be overcome by God. Firstly, through world-wide natural disasters, and secondly through the agency of the Great Monarch whom God will choose for that very purpose:

"His sword will be moved by Divine power......" (Rudolph Gekner, 17th Century)

"And a voice fell from the heavens: 'Here are those whom I have chosen'" (i.e. the Great Monarch and the Holy Pope Premol, 5th Century)

Many more such references could be cited, but these suffice to show that the Great Monarch will, indeed, be sent by God. The context of these short excerpts can be found in "CATHOLIC PROPHECY".

Literally hundreds of prophecies announce the rise of the Great Monarch. Here are a few:
"A Frankish King will one day rule over the entire Roman Empire." (St. Augustine, 5th Century)

"The sixth period (of time) will begin with the powerful Monarch." (Ven. B. Holzhauser, 17th Century)

"The good people will triumph when the return of the King is announced." (Cur‚ of Ars, 19th Century)

"He will come from the Fleur-de-Lis..." (Old Saxon prophecy)

"... a King of the House of Lilies..." (St. Cataldus, 5th Century)

"He shall recover the Crown of the Lilies....." (St. Caesar, 5th Century)

"The White Flower again takes possession of the Throne of France." (St. Hildegarde, German Abbess, 12th Century)

"He shall inherit the Crown of the Fleur-de-Lis" (Bishop Ageda, 12th Century)

Many other details are given about this God-chosen King which might, however, be tedious to enumerate. Thus, his origin is clearly given by several prophecies as coming from "between the Rhine and the North Sea" - (Monk Hilarion, 15th Century).

He will come from the ancient French royal family but he will be truly European, not just French. Through intermarriage most, if not all, royal heirs in Europe today can claim a Capetian ancestry. And, indeed, many prophecies mention that he will have also German blood and Spanish blood, and these prophecies are not necessarily German or Spanish: the Spanish blood, for instance, is mentioned by St. Bridget of Sweden, and the German blood by a French prophet.

Some details, seemingly unimportant, are nevertheless worth mentioning because of their varied origins. Among these is the fact that he will walk with a limp:

"... Prince's foot impeded ... " (Nostradamus, 16th Century)

"He will be lame afoot ... " (Old German prophecy)

"God touched the sinew of his hip. He was in great pain and from that day on, he walked with a limp ... " (Anne-Catherine Emmerich, 19th Century)

"This Prince shall mount his horse on the right-hand side, because he limps from one foot .... " (Peasant Jasper, Germany)

He will be full of goodness and virtue; many prophecies insist on this:

Yves Dupont on the Great Monarch Pt. 3

Here are some events that were predicted long ago:
  1. Ireland occupied by the English for seven Centuries.
  2. England leaving the Catholic Church in the 16th Century.
  3. The discovery of the Continent of America.
  4. The French Revolution and the decapitation of the French King.
  5. Modern inventions: the steam engine, the motor-car, the aeroplane, submarines, nuclear power, television.
  6. The rise of the lower classes and the advent of Democracy.
  7. Communism.
  8. The development of literacy, the proliferation of pornography.
  9. Low moral standards, permissiveness, deviations.
  10. Crisis in the Church, new liturgy, apostasy of many bishops.
This, I might say, is not a comprehensive listing, merely a few examples. But if the first part of these prophecies has come to pass, should we disregard the second? I do not disregard the second part. Here are the events which we can now expect:
  1. Civil wars, revolutions, break-down of authority everywhere.
  2. Military coups even in Western Countries.
  3. An anti-pope in Rome. The developing apostasy becomes universal.
  4. Persecution of the Church by Communist governments, abetted at first by many of the hierarchy and Clergy.
  5. Complete destruction of the Church's structures at the hands of the Communists and even those who collaborated with them.
  6. Natural disasters, earthquakes, floods, drought, famines, epidemics.
  7. Cosmic phenomenon, three days of darkness, collapse of Communism.
  8. More military coups and rise of the Great Monarch.
  9. Re-birth of the Catholic Church. New Ecumenic Council, restoration of former disciplines in the Church. A Holy Pope occupies the Chair of Peter.
  10. Period of peace, faith, plenty. 
What comes after this is not the subject matter of this article.

Yves Dupont on the Great Monarch Pt. 2

Admittedly, I have formed my own opinion on some of these post-war reports, as some of my readers well know, but the purpose of this article is mainly to present a collection of prophecies that have either been approved by the Church as worthy of credence (e.g. Anne Catherine Emmerich), or given ample proof of their authenticity (e.g. Zacharias). This is not to say that I have no intention of ever writing a critical study of recent reports - (I have done so concerning Garabandal and Stich), but only that they are not within the scope of this article because they require a different treatment and approach.

Some of the prophecies given here have already been cited in my book "CATHOLIC PROPHECY" in which I gave a general picture of the coming upheaval. The present article bears more specifically on the glorious Age of Peace to come, under the reign of the Great Monarch. For this reason, I do not propose to quote at length the prophecies of my previous book but only the passages relating to the Age of Peace and the Great Monarch.

Many of these prophecies are French, and they make it quite clear that Monarchy will be restored in France. But the restoration of Monarchy will not be a local affair; it will be a world-wide phenomenon. This will mark a near historical epoch and, because of this, many people are finding it hard to believe.
The age of republics and Democracies will be over, Communism and Socialism a thing of the past. This age of peace will also be an age of belief and an age of plenty. It will mark the victory of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and of Christ the King, the revaluation of authority and discipline, and the conversion of the entire world to the Catholic Faith - (except for a few pockets of unbelief).

These conclusions have been drawn from my study of private prophecies which I began about 30 years ago. These prophecies were made from the very beginning of the Christian Era up to our own time. They originate from virtually every country in the world) non-Christian lands included. The concordance existing between hundreds of different prophecies is truly remarkable. It would be unreasonable to claim that the bulk of these private seers were merely repeating earlier prophecies which they had themselves read. Such a claim is untenable for a number of reasons: firstly, because communication between various countries was very limited prior to the 19th Century. Secondly, because all writings were in manuscript form before Gutenberg evolved the printing press in the 15th Century. Thirdly, because some of these prophecies were discovered many centuries after they had been written. In a few cases, however, it is known that some prophecies were not made by those who handed them down; and in other cases it is not inconceivable that an old manuscript may have repeated the substance of an earlier one. Thus, the wording of St. Remy's prophecy, so strikingly similar to that of St. Augustine, may be just relating what St. Remy had heard or read from the writings of St. Augustine which, even in his life-time, were reproduced in manuscript form in the monasteries of Western Europe. St. Augustine died in 430, and St. Remy was born in 437.
In his youth, St. Remy would have been conversant with the writings of St. Augustine. Such cases are few in number. But the final argument lies in the fact that many of the early prophecies have already come to pass in part.

Yves Dupont on the Great Monarch Pt. 1

MORE ABOUT THE GREAT MONARCH (AND THE GLORIOUS AGE OF PEACE TO COME UNDER THE REIGN OF THE GREAT MONARCH) by Yves Dupont from World Trends #41, August, 1974 (Printed form to ASCII conversion by jmcnally@fred.net)

[NOTE: Words or phrases bounded by the "_" symbol were underlined in the original.]

There has been a great number of reported apparitions since 1945. I know many of these and possess a fairly comprehensive documentation on most, but I do not intend quoting any here because these recent reports have either been condemned, or the Church is still examining them. It may be argued that a
condemnation from an apostate bishop is worthless but, granted that apostasy has made devastating inroads in the Church, it does not follow that every bishop is an apostate. Further a
condemnation issued by an apostate cannot be taken as worthless on this ground alone, for an apostate may still speak truth on occasion. Finally, it must be borne in mind that apostasy can
take many forms: there are shades of grey between black and white; a bishop who ignores the decrees of the Council of Trent on the Mass, or other matters, is not necessarily a faithless renegade in all matters; there is such a thing as human weakness bowing to pressure and, if this does not exonerate the fainthearted, it does provide a measure of extenuation. It would be foolish to regard a bishop's condemnation of a reported apparition as an additional reason to believe in it!

It is beyond question that some of these recent reports are true, if only for the fact that Our Lady, since 1830, has never allowed a period of 28 years to go by before again visiting the world. As the climax approaches, it is only reasonable to assume that Our Lady will make her appeals more pressing and more frequent. But because the climax approaches, it is also
reasonable to assume that the devil will increase his own efforts for the down-fall of souls by fabricating false apparitions and working lying wonders. The devil, as we know, is cunning and
clever; he may speak truth in order to draw people away from the Church or, on the contrary, he may urge obedience to a bishop or priest he already controls. His intelligence far surpasses our human understanding, and what he does and says may sometimes appear excellent on the surface. In view of this, there is a very real danger in accepting uncritically a reported apparition
merely because the eye-witnesses saw extraordinary things. Our suspicion should even be stronger as the messages are the more verbose.

Bug de Milhas on the Great Monarch

A war, in Europe, is announced by name and their prophecies will be fulfilled. That war will ravage all places. Pestilence and many other plagues will scatter terror everywhere. The fanaticism of false beliefs and of intolerant parties will fill many countries with victims. Iberia (Spain and Portugal) will be the asylum of all its refugees. Catholics fleeing from the fury of their enemies will seek refuge in Spain.
"The the region of the river Tajo (Spain and Portugal) will produce a valiant warrior similar to the Cid and he will be as religious as Ferdinand III who, planting the standard of the faith, will unite around himself innumerable armies. With his army he will go out to meet a formidable giant who, with his ferocious soldiers, will adavance towards the conquest of the Peninsula.
"The Pyrenees will witness the cruelest combat ever seen throughout the centuries. The battle will last three days. In vain, the fearsome giant will try to encourage his own to continue the fight, but the finger of God will already show him th end of his reign and his army will fall under the sword of the new Cid.
"Then the victorious army, protected by their Supreme Creator, will cross provinces and seas and will carry the standard of the Cross even to the banks of the river Neva (the heart of Russia). The Catholic religion will triumph everywhere.

Blessed Anna-Katerina Emmerick on the Great Monarch

Blessed Anna-Katerina Emmerick (18th Century)
July 26, 1820. "I have a vision of the holy Roman Emperor Henry. I saw him at night kneeling alone at the foof of the main altar in a great and beautiful Church... and I saw the Blessed Virgin coming down all alone. She laid on the Altar a red cloth covered iwth while linen. She placed a blook inlaid with percious stones. She lit the candles and tyhe perpetual lamp...Then came the Saviour Himself clad in priestly vestments. He was carrying the chalice and the veil. Two Angels were serving Him and two more were following...His chasuble was a full and heavy mantle in which red and white could be seen in transparency, and gleaming with jewels...Although there was no altar bell, the cruets were there. The wine was as red as blood, and there was also some water. The Mass was short. The Gospel of St. John was not read at the end. When the Mass had ended, Mary came up to Henry (the Emperor), and she extended her right hand towards him, saying that it was in recognition of his purity. Then, she urged him not to falter. Thereupon I saw an angel, and he touched the sinew of his hip, like Jacob. He (Henry) was in great pain; and from that day on he walked limp.....

St. John Vianney on the Great King

St. John Vianney, The Cure' of Ars (19th Century)

The enemy (the Prussians) will allow the burning of Paris, and they will rejoice at it, but they shall be beaten; they shall be driven entirely from France. Our enemies shall return, and will destroy everything in their march. They shall arrive at Poitiers without meeting any serious resistance, but there they shall be crushed by the defenders of the West, who shall pursue them. From other directions their provisions shall be cut off, and they shall suffer very serious losses. They will attempt to retire towards their country, but very few of them shall ever reach it.

The Communists of Paris, after their defeat, shall spread themselves through all France, and will be greatly multiplied. They shall seize arms; they shall oppress the people of order. Lastly, a civil war shall break out everywhere. These wicked people shall become masters in the North, East and Southwest of France. They will imprison very many persons, and will be guilty of moer massacres. They will attempt to kill att the priests and all the religious. But this shall not last long. Poeple will imagine that all is lost; but the good God shall save all. It will be like a sign of the last judgement...God shall come to help; the good shall triumph when the return of the king shall accounced. This shall reestablish a peace and prosperity without example. Religion shall flourish again better than ever before.
Christian Trumpet. pp. 87 & 88.
