The Three Days Of Darkness

Supplies such as 6 mil black plastic will be essential to get through the three days of darkness.

In The Two-Fold Chastisement: Visions of The Coming Earth Changes, the 'The Long Night', or commonly known as The Three Days of Darkness is treated in depth.

This coming event is not the first time it has occurred in the known history of man. However, this time, it is the second part of a Two-Fold Chastisement. The first part, as God's Holy Mother has said, "will come from man himself."--it will come from within. She also said, "Nature will turn against you."

We are now experiencing these things from within: terrorist attacks by our own people (The Murrah Building, Anthrax, etc. and more to come), El Niño, strange weather for the past several years--these are "all plain signs" we are about to undergo a Chastisement "worst than the deluge," she said.

Here, in an abbreviated form, is what many of the Mother Church's saints have said, given them by God Himself and His Holy Mother.


Increasing violent disturbances on land, at sea, and in the air; earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, windstorms, cloudbursts, breaking of dams, overflowing of streams and seas, huge tidal waves, floods, unusual "accidents" taking many lives, famines, epidemics, destruction, destitution, failure of crops, water and crops will change, becoming more" polluted" and less nourishing. Revolutions, downfall of governments, dissensions, wars, confusion in high places, lack of respect for authority, treachery, corruption, brutalities, atrocities. Breakdown of family life, immorality, adultery, infidelity, promiscuity, perversion and violence of youth, disobedience, lack of values, indecent nakedness of dress, countless sins and iniquities, people concerned only with eating, drinking, dancing, and pleasures. Flaunting of Church laws, irreverence and immodesty in church, lack of attendance at Church, neglect of holy conduct on Sundays, neglect of the sacraments, sinful pride in sham-religious activities, many "religious" will fall away and take souls with them, enemies, persecution, suppression of the Church will increase and there will be many martyrs. Lack of charity, heartlessness, indifference, and lack of concern for our neighbor, people turning against each other, even in the bosom of the family, people proud in their own knowledge, and turning away from God.

We are experiencing these things now. Just glance at the daily newspapers to see clearly the above impending signs.


The night will be BITTERLY COLD, the wind will howl and roar, then will come lightning, thunderbolts, earthquakes, the stars and heavenly bodies will be disturbed and restless. There will be NO light, but TOTAL BLACKNESS, utter dark will envelop the entire earth. This will come suddenly like a flash!

NOT A SINGLE DEMON WILL BE LEFT IN HELL. Hell will be emptied and EVERY evil spirit will be released to roam over the earth and do all possible harm to souls. The evil ones will appear in the most frightening forms and will fill the air with pestilence and poisonous gases, there will be "TERRIFYING APPARITIONS." Many will die from fear and despair, the wicked people will behold the Divine Heart of Our Lord.

"My angels, who are to be the executioners of this work, stand ready with pointed swords and they will take special care to annihilate all those who mock ME and would not believe in My revelations."

Hurricanes of fires will rain forth from Heaven and spread over all the earth, fear will seize mortals at the sight of these clouds of fire, and great will be their cries of lamentation, many godless WILL BURN IN THE OPEN FIELDS LIKE WITHERED GRASS. God's wrath will be poured out upon the whole world, the "chastisement" will be terrible, SUCH AS NEVER BEFORE, and will afflict the ENTIRE EARTH.

Satan will triumph in these awful days, and hell will appear to have gained possession of the world, but God will reclaim it, for even this chastisement is an act of God's mercy. He tells us NOT TO PRAY AGAINST IT, as it must come, but pray to save yourself and as many others as possible, and pray that these days may be shortened.


There are predicted two other occurrences, as additional and final warnings before the terror of the three-day darkness. A Prodigy during which time EVERY soul will be shown exactly how they have offended God and to what extent. This will be a time of such intense personal suffering that many will "wish" to die, but no one will.

A Miracle similar to that at Fatima, a great wonder to convince many, predicted to take place on the Feast Day of a "young martyr" of the "Eucharist" but NOT on a holy day of Our Lady. The miracle will last for about a quarter of an hour and will be visible from Garabandal, Spain, and the surrounding mountains. Our Holy Father will see it no matter where he is at the time. This miracle will take place on a date which will be "announced" eight days BEFORE. Afterwards, God will leave a sign in memory of it.


As late as 1965, the three days of darkness was spoken of again in a holy person in Europe: "The Divine fire and the fire of hell will arrive and last during the days of darkness indicated by all the saints. My luminous cross will appear in the sky; it will be the sign that the final events are close, and will remind all of My terrible passion, so that they will have time to reflect, for I shall not punish the world WITHOUT PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENT.

All will have time to comprehend the significance of that cross in the sky, and everyone shall see it. All will know, even those who "reject" it, that this My cross will be the sign that a Redeemer came once to bring salvation and pardon. My cross will be honored as never before.


As soon as you perceive the disturbed signs of the very cold night: Go inside, shut and lock all doors and windows, pull down the shades, keep the doors and windows well covered, go and stay away from doors and windows. Do not look out, do not go outside for any reason, and do not talk to anyone outside. ANYONE WHO LOOKS OUT OR GOES OUT WILL DIE IMMEDIATELY! The wrath of God is holy and He does not want us to see it.


All will be black, and the only thing which will give light will be blessed wax candles; even these will not burn in the houses of the godless scoffers.

Once lit, NOTHING WILL PUT THEM OUT IN THE HOUSES OF THE BELIEVERS. Be sure to keep a supply of blessed wax candles in your homes -- also Holy Water to be sprinkled freely around the house, especially at doors and windows. Bless yourself and others with it. Drink it and anoint your "senses" with it (eyes, ears, nose, mouth) and hands, feet, and forehead.

KEEP ON HAND a sufficient supply of food, water and blankets for those of your household and any visitors. Do not count on any utilities.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR ANIMALS by leaving enough food and water outside for them to last these days. God will preserve the property of the elect, including their animals. It is assumed that house pets may be kept inside. Animals which have been petted or cared for by a BLESSED person receive a certain protection.

KNEEL DOWN BEFORE A CRUCIFIX AND PRAY INCESSANTLY. Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the floor, pleading for many souls to be saved. Make acts of contrition, of faith, hope, and love. Make acts of Spiritual Communion. Read spiritual books. PRAY THE ROSARY with meditation on its mysteries. "You must think more of the Passion of Christ."

CALL UPON GOD'S MERCY, and call upon Our Blessed Mother for He has given these times into the care of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary (under that title). "No harm will come to those who are in the state of grace and seek My Mother's protection."

FOR YOUR SPECIAL INTERCESSORS, call upon the Holy Trinity, Holy Mary, Saint Joseph, Saints Peter and Paul, Saint Therese (the Little Flower), Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, Saint Conrad of Parzham, the Holy Angels, your own Guardian Angels, and Saint Michael the Archangel. The cry: "Who is like unto God!" (the motto of Saint Michael) will serve as a protection to many.

Those who are caught traveling on the road and unable to get to shelter will die as martyrs and be taken to Heaven, if they are good. Some children and others will be taken to Heaven beforehand, to spare them the horror of these days.


These days of darkness have already been postponed by the increased prayers and the sacrifices of good people and through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother. They may still be delayed a little more, but make no mistake about it, THEY WILL COME, for in the merciful plan of God, this world must be purified of its sin. It is predicted that these THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS will come and NO ONE WILL ESCAPE THE TERROR OF THESE DAYS!

"I WILL FIND THEM ALL." -- This is Christ speaking.


After the three days of chastisement are over, there will be no UNGODLY PERSONS left, the godless will be annihilated. Seventy-five percent of humanity will be destroyed, more men than women.

Everyone left on earth will believe in God with all their hearts.

The devastation will be astonishingly great, but the earth will be purified. The spiritual fervor of the early Christians will return, but there will be so few men left on earth. When all seems lost, then in a twinkling, all will be saved, the sun will shine again and it will be as springtime, all fair and beautiful. The Holy Angels will descend from Heaven and spread the spirit of peace over the earth, and the just will be able to start life anew.

Some nations will disappear entirely, and the face of the earth will be changed. There will be NO MORE BIG BUSINESS, huge factories and assembly lines which sap men's souls and moralities. People will return to the land.

Our Holy Church will rise again, and religious communities will flower. A feeling of immeasurable gratitude will possess the hearts of those who survive this terrible ordeal and, upon the return of light, ALL SHOULD KNEEL DOWN IMMEDIATELY AND GIVE THANKS TO THE HOLY TRINITY FOR THEIR PROTECTION, AND BLESS GOD.

Then will follow the era of peace as promised by the Blessed Virgin at Fatima.


We never know the day nor the hour when God may call us. We must let none of these signs turn us from our Holy Mother Church, but we must cling to our Holy Faith and TRUST IN GOD'S MERCY. He has promised to protect the just. Do not offend Him by lack of trust.

"Those who believe my words and spread this message will have nothing to fear. Those who fight for my cause will receive grace from My Divine Heart."

HAVE YOUR HOME BLESSED AND CONSECRATED TO THE HOLY HEARTS OF JESUS AND MARY. And always keep on hand: Holy Water, Blessed Wax Candles, Blessed Palm, Blessed Crucifix, Images of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.


Holy Mother Church gives us a choice of many devotions and a great treasury of indulgences. She tells us that we should value indulgences highly and we should gain as many as possible for ourselves and others.

Be enrolled in and constantly wear the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which is "Our Lady's Livery." Every day recite the commutation prayers of seven times Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be, to gain the Sabbatine Privilege (rescue from purgatory the Saturday following your death).

Be enrolled in and wear the Miraculous Medal of Our Lady, which bestows such great graces. Remember her words when She sadly said: "Many people do not receive graces because they do not ask for them."

The Miraculous Medal Prayer

O Mary, Conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

It is well also to wear the Saint Benedict Medal, which is the highest indulgenced Medal of the Church. Learn and recite the prayers against Satan, which are engraved on the Medal.

We should cultivate such devotion to Saint Joseph. It is revealed that wherever the Blessed Virgin is, Saint Joseph is always with Her, because it was given to him to take care of Her.

We must always draw nearer to and rely upon the Holy Angels, remembering that they are not only our guardians but also our messengers, ready to do our bidding. There is a chaplet in honor of the Angels, which contains remarkable promises for those who recite it.

We are urged to make MANY MORE VISITS TO THE BLESSED SACRAMENT, and to make Holy Hours. If we cannot go to a Church for these things, then we should send our Angel to attend Holy Mass for us, to visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, to attend to our prayers.

We should make VERY MANY SPIRITUAL COMMUNIONS. Our Lord asked Sister Benigna to let not even a quarter of an hour pass without making a Spiritual Communion. SO DESIRABLE HIS IS.

The "Storm Novena" is valuable, in that it brings us to the Blessed Sacrament nine times in one day. Another devotion most pleasing to Our Lord is to His Holy Face. He not only wishes us to make reparation for the insults to His Holy Face, but he wants us to behold Him face to face for all eternity.

Saint Athanasius relates that the devils on being asked what verse in the Scriptures they feared the most, replied: "That with which the 67th Psalm commences: Let God arise, and let His Enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Him flee from before His face!" They added that this verse always compelled them to take flight.

We should give special attention to Saint Michael, the Archangel, and continue to recite the prayer (by Pope Leo XIII) after each Mass. This holy Pope composed this prayer after his terrifying vision of Satan's power of destruction in these times.

Much more devotion should be given to the Holy Spirit. We should be impressed with the importance of the Holy Ghost when we recall that Our Lord said that He must go, in order that the Holy Spirit could come, and "The Holy Spirit will teach you all things that you need to know."

We should not forget the Poor Souls in Purgatory. We ask them for favors, and pray for their release. They are very grateful for the prayers received from us and they respond in kind. They remember us when they get to Heaven and intercede for us before God Himself.

The Green Scapular continues to bestow many blessings and effect many conversions and returns to Church, with the prayer: "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death."

In Our Lord's revelations to Berthe Petit, He particularly asked devotion to Our Blessed Mother under the title of "Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary."

A prayer too much forgotten is the one which Our Lady of Fàtima asked to be said when we offer sacrifices: "O Jesus, it is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary."

When Sister Josefa Menendez (called the "second Margaret-Mary") asked Our Lady for a prayer to be said constantly while working, She gave this: "O My Beloved, Who art also My God, make my heart a flame of pure love for Thee!"

Very great promises to save countless souls accompany this little prayer which Our Lord taught to Sister M. Consolato Betrone (Capuchin Nun): "JESUS, MARY, I LOVE YOU! SAVE SOULS!"

The fifteen prayers of Saint Bridget of Sweden, on the Passion of Our Lord, are most timely, since Our Lady has recently impressed upon us that we "must think more of the Passion of Jesus."

In one of Our Blessed Mother's revelations to a stigmatic nun in Italy, she said: "My daughter, the time is not far off. When men least expect it, the course of Divine Justice will be accomplished.

"My Heart is so big for poor sinners and I make use of every possible means that they may be saved. Look at My Mantle, how big it is! If I were not bowed over the world, to cover all with My maternal love, the tempest of fire would already have broken upon the nations.

"This is the mantle of My Mercy for all those who, have repented, come back to My Immaculate Heart. See. My right hand holds the mantle to cover and save poor sinners, while My left hand holds back Divine Justice so that the time of mercy may still be prolonged.

"To help me in this, I ask that the prayer of 'Maternal Refuge' be spread as a most useful means to obtain graces and salvation for poor sinners."
