533. Apostles of the Last Times

 

Santiago (Dominican Republic), December 8, 1994

Feast of the Immaculate Conception

"You find yourself here, my little son, to hold a cenacle with the bishops, priests and faithful of my Movement, on this day when the Church celebrates the Solemnity of my Immaculate Conception.

The Most Holy Trinity has filled my entire being with this singular privilege, because I was destined to be the Mother of the Word, become man in my most pure womb.

In view of my divine maternity, I have been preserved from original sin and from every shadow of personal sin, and I have been filled with grace and holiness.

Because I am the Mother of Jesus, I have been intimately associated in the mystery of his work of Redemption, as co-redemptrix, and have thus become true mediatrix of grace between you and my Son Jesus.

Beneath the Cross, through the will of my Son, I have become Mother of you all, and in the Cenacle with the apostles, I have participated as Mother in the birth of the Church.

My motherly task is that of leading the Church along the way of its evangelization. And so I have always been at the side of each of my children who, through two thousand years, have brought the announcement of the Gospel to every part of the world.

Precisely on this day, you are celebrating here the five hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the evangelization of all this great continent of America.

After nearly two thousand years since the first announcing of the Gospel, humanity has again become pagan. I am the Mother of the second evangelization. Mine is the task of forming the apostles of the second evangelization. During these years, I have formed you with particular care and through the gift of my words, to be the apostles of these last times.

Apostles of the last times, because you must announce to all, to the very ends of the earth, the Gospel of Jesus, in these days of the great apostasy. In the great darkness which has descended upon the world, spread the Light of Christ and of his divine Truth.

Apostles of the last times, because you must give to all the very life of God, by means of grace which you communicate with the sacraments of which you are the ministers. And thus you spread the fragrance of purity and of holiness in these times of great perversion.

Apostles of the last times, because you are being called to bring down the dew of the merciful love of Jesus upon a world parched by the inability to love and menaced more and more with hatred, violence and war.

Apostles of the last times, because you must announce the closely approaching return of Jesus in glory, who will lead humanity into the new times, when at last there will be seen new heavens and a new earth.

Proclaim to all his forthcoming return: 'Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!'

Prophecy of Saint Louis de Montfort also about the last times.

The reason we call Saint Louis Marie de Montfort a prophet of the last days, even though he lived between the last half of the Seventeenth Century and the first part of the Eighteenth century is because of what we read in his prophecies which deal with these last days:


“....towards the end of the world, ....Almighty God and His holy Mother are to raise up saints who will surpass in holiness most other saints as much as the cedars of Lebanon tower above little shrubs.”


“These great souls filled with grace and zeal will be chosen to oppose the enemies of God who are raging on all sides. They will be exceptionally devoted to the Blessed Virgin. Illumined by her light, strengthened by her spirit, supported by her arms, sheltered under her protection, they will fight with one hand and build with the other.

With one hand they will give battle, overthrowing and crushing heretics and their heresies, schismatics and their schisms, idolaters and their idolatries, sinners and their wickedness. With the other hand they will build the temple of the true Solomon and the mystical city of God, namely, the Blessed Virgin... “
“They will be like thunderclouds flying through the air at the slightest breath of the Holy Spirit. Attached to nothing, surprised at nothing, they will shower down the rain of God’s word and of eternal life. They will thunder against sin; they will storm against the world; they will strike down the devil and his followers and for life and for death, they will pierce through and through with the two-edged sword of God’s word all those against whom they are sent by Almighty God.”


“They will be true apostles of the latter times to whom the Lord of Hosts will give eloquence and strength to work wonders and carry off glorious spoils from His enemies. They will sleep without gold or silver and, more important still, without concern in the midst of other priests, ecclesiastics and clerics. Yet they will have the silver wings of the dove enabling them to go wherever the Holy Spirit calls them, filled as they are, with the resolve to seek the glory of God and the salvation of souls. Wherever they preach, they will leave behind them nothing but the gold of love, which is the fulfillment of the whole law.”

“They will have the two-edged sword of the Word of God in their mouths and the bloodstained standard of the Cross on their shoulders. They will carry the Crucifix in their right hand and the rosary in their left, and the holy names of Jesus and Mary on their heart.


“Mary scarcely appeared in the first coming of Christ...

But in the second coming of Jesus Christ, Mary must be known and openly revealed by the Holy Spirit so that Jesus may be known, loved and served through her.”
