My mother’s four grandparents moved from Ireland to Chicago in the first half of the 20th century,  so I grew up hearing from extended family and peers what great men Cardinal Bernadin and President Kennedy were.  I also graduated Boston College in 2000.  So, even though I was raised in Denver, the fact is that Chicago Catholicism and Boston Catholicism are in my bloodstream.   I trusted this version of Catholicism.  But to rebuild traditional Catholicism and understand who to trust, perhaps we have to expose some of this evil, for St. Paul writes, “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.”—Eph 5:11.  The following are very dark events, so proceed reading this blog post only with great discretion.

National Geographic writer Patrick Kiger wrote that President John F. Kennedy was a “compulsive womanizer, whose insatiable urge for sexual conquest was fueled by a complex array of personal traumas – his own father’s conspicuous adultery, a difficult relationship with his mother, anxiety about his own health problems, his brush with death during World War II, and the deaths at a young age of his siblings Joe Jr. and Kathleen.” One of JFK’s mistresses was a 19 year old White House intern named Mimi Alford (below) with whom he had an 18 month affair. What was unofficially known of JFK’s philandering with Mimi for years was finally made official in 2003 by Robert Dallek’s biography of JFK called An Unfinished Life. Only after this publication did Mimi (by now an elderly woman) write her own book of her teenage affair with the President called Once Upon a Secret.  In this book, she describes these many trysts both in the White House and elsewhere with the President before his assassination.   In Mimi’s book, she wrote of a “pregnancy scare” between the President and the teenage girl. President Kennedy handed her over to his right-hand-man Dave Powers to take care of the abortion, as follows:

To my shame, I soon had a personal crisis of my own: my period was two weeks late. The President took the news in his stride, but he could hardly have been surprised. I knew nothing about birth control, and he never used protection with me (either because of his Catholicism or recklessness, I could never be sure).  An hour later, Dave called the dorm and told me to call a woman who could put me in touch with a doctor in New Jersey. The intermediary was a necessary precaution, because abortion was illegal. That was pure Dave Powers: he handled the problem immediately, and with brute practicality. There was no talk about what I wanted, or how I felt, or what the medical risks might be.—Mimi Alford, Once Upon a Secret

In the end, this 19 year old White-House intern named Mimi did not get the abortion, but only because she never got pregnant with President Kennedy’s baby after their 18 month “affair.”

JFK was America’s first Catholic President.  Kennedy’s first (and only time) to Rome as President was on the 1st of July 1963.  On that day, he met with Italian President Segni as well as NATO officials.   On 2 July 1963, JFK had an audience with the newly-coronated Pope Paul VI.  Kennedy also visited the North American College where he met with the Archbishop of Boston, Richard Cardinal Cushing.  (The North American College is also known as the “NAC,” the seminary in Rome where young North American men study.  This seminary is still open, but has recently become known for scandals.)

On 30 June 1963, Pope Paul VI had the very last papal coronation ceremony for himself (as he later abolished it.)  That night, as the clocks in Rome struck midnight (now 1 July 1963) Fr. Malachi Martin claimed there was a satanic ceremony in the Pauline chapel in the Vatican that he called a “luciferian enthronement” that included extremely high-ranking members of the Catholic Church in the Vatican attempting to hand the Catholic Church over to Satan by an extremely evil ritual.  (I had heard of this alleged event many times the past year and alluded to this as the event upon which most older exorcists say that they lost most of their power.  I assumed it was probably true, but I chose not to blog about it too extensively since I figured that Fr. Malachi Martin purposefully wrote about it as “faction.” Faction is where there is a lot of truth, but names and dates are changed for safety. So, I could not prove this was the actual satanic event that tanked the powers of exorcists across the globe.)

However, recently while listening to the podcast Return to Tradition by Anthony Stine, we learn that “the luciferian enthronement” in St. Paul’s chapel in the Vatican on the 1st of July 1963 was probably real:

Fr. Brian Harrison modifies the above Remnant article in his article at the Remnant that now reads:

Now, in column 1 on p. 5 she says that the real date of the infamous event described at the beginning of Windswept House is said to have been 1957, while in column 3 she says it took place “in the 1960s.”  I can clarify what Fr. Martin said was the true date of the Luciferian Enthronement inside the Vatican with the following information from a quarter-century ago that I have never made public until now.

In the last decade of Malachi Martin’s life (he died in 1999) I became a personal friend of his and would visit him in his Manhattan apartment whenever I was in New York. In the section headed “1963” in the Prologue of Windswept House, we read that this shocking ceremony, enthroning “the Fallen Archangel Lucifer” in the Chapel of St. Paul, took place on June 29, 1963, the Feast of SS. Peter and Paul, the eve of the coronation of the newly elected Pope Paul VI.

It celebrated gloatingly the long-prepared-for arrival of a pope more open to liberal changes than any of his predecessors. Around the time the book was published in 1996, Fr. Martin told me that this date was indeed “factional”, and that the true date of this blasphemous act of devilry, coordinated with a corresponding ceremony on the American side of the Atlantic, was actually one day later. That is, it took place the night after Paul’s VI’s coronation in St. Peter’s Square on the afternoon of Sunday, June 30. Malachi told me it was indeed carried out in the Chapel of St. Paul, as Windswept House says, and began at midnight on the night of June 30 / July 1, 1963.—Fr. Brian Harrison

Although the dates are different, CMTV reports the evidence: “As per Thursday’s special report, the allegations involve the rape of a minor by the young Fr. Joseph Bernardin in 1957 at St. Mary’s parish in Greenville, South Carolina, located in the diocese of Charleston. The rape is said to have contained elements of a satanic ritual and further involved Bernardin’s ordinary, Bp. John J. Russell, who was then head of the Charleston diocese.” There is further evidence of this outlined here and here. (Agnes is still alive today.  Agnes is astonishingly still a practicing Catholic—and presumably a very holy one, considering that she has kept the Faith through such unspeakable abuse.  I do not know her, but I support her and I offered Holy Mass for her today.)

So, perhaps both events took place in the summer of 1963 at the exact same time but across the Atlantic with the latter being at midnight.  Midnight on the first of July in Rome would obviously be the 30th of June in the evening in South Carolina.

Now, I am not saying that JFK or Pope Paul VI were at “the luciferian enthronement” on 1 July 1963 at midnight in St. Paul’s in the Vatican.   In fact, I don’t think those two were there.  But the above links show important satanic connections between the US and Rome culminating during the first week of July in 1963 and there is also a strange connections between child-sex slavery, satanism and abortion with famous Catholics whom we had trusted.  Why is this important?  It shows that Satan has an interest first in sinking the Vatican and at a distant second—the United States.   Perhaps it also shows that the restoration of the Church may need to begin in Rome and the US if these events changed the entire spiritual ethos of the Catholic Church at large.

Furthermore, it is very interesting to me that Pope Paul VI suppressed both the coronation ceremony of future Popes and the feast of the Most Precious Blood on the 1st of July.  (The feast of the Most Precious Blood is still celebrated by all of us priests who use the traditional calendar for Holy Mass and the Divine Office.)  In fact, all of July is to be dedicated to the Most Precious Blood, which is seen as the medicine for all sin, but especially the divine medicine against sins of impurity.  Put all of these events together and it becomes clear as it says in our Wisdom literature: “For the beginning of fornication is the devising of idols, and the invention of them is the corruption of life.”—Wisdom 14:12 DRB

Of course, the Divine aspect of the Catholic Church can never be harmed, for she is the spotless bride of Christ, but the human aspect can be nearly obliterated by such a satanic act in the Vatican.  Regarding the “the luciferian enthronement” on 1 July 1963 at midnight in St. Paul’s, Fr. Brian Harrison writes at the above article what this may have caused or advanced: “[This] will add to what is publicly known about a reported event which, if indeed it took place, was very probably a significant factor in exacerbating that ‘smoke of Satan’ which has corrupted so many aspects of the Church’s life and witness since Vatican Council II.”  Even Wikipedia admits what the factional “luciferian enthronement” on 1 June 1963 at St. Paul’s in Vatican was supposed to accomplish as outlined in Fr. Malachi Martin’s Windswept House:  “It tells the story of an international organized attempt by these Vatican insiders and secular internationalists to force a pope of the Catholic Church to abdicate, so that a successor may be chosen that will fundamentally change orthodox faith and establish a New World Order.”

Good thing that hasn’t happened yet—otherwise Catholics today might be tempted to believe all these wacky conspiracy theories!

Fatima, Portugal at night

In any case, what do we do with all this bad news?  There is some hope insofar as heaven warned us at Fatima and also gave words of encouragement to Bruno in the Virgin of Revelation apparitions.  The Virgin of Revelation apparition to Bruno is a 20th century private revelation with papal approval that is often seen as the key to unlocking Fatima.  In it, Mary warned and encouraged us with her own words to Bruno:

The entire Church will undergo a tremendous trial, to clean up the mass of rotten flesh that has infiltrated into Her ministers, in particular among the Orders of poverty: a moral trial, a spiritual trial. For the time indicated in the heavenly books, priests and faithful will be placed at a perilous turning-point in the world of the lost, which will rush to the assault with whichever means: false ideologies and theologies! Supplication from both parts, the faithful and the unfaithful, will be made according to the trials. I, among you the elect, with Christ as Our Captain, will fight for you… The wrath of Satan is no longer restrained; the Spirit of God is withdrawn from the earth, the Church will be left a widow, behold the funeral drape, She will be left to the mercy of the world. Children, become saints and sanctify yourselves more, always love each other… Marshal yourselves under the banner of Christ. Working in this way, you will see the fruits of victory in the awakening of consciences to the good; despite being in evil, you will see, through your cooperative and efficacious help, sinners converted and the Fold filled up with saved souls.

Notice the bad news that Mary knew and warned us that “the wrath of Satan is no longer restrained; the Spirit of God is withdrawn from the earth, the Church will be left a widow, behold the funeral drape, She will be left to the mercy of the world.”  However, the Holy Theotokos, the Immaculate Conception and Mother of God also proved to us that we could continue making converts in these dark times if we especially were to do this: “Marshal yourselves under the banner of Christ. Working in this way, you will see the fruits of victory in the awakening of consciences to the good; despite being in evil, you will see, through your cooperative and efficacious help, sinners converted and the fold filled up with saved souls.”

If the enemy of human nature knew the plan for infiltration of the human aspect of Catholic Church must start in Italy and the USA in the 20th century, then maybe we Apostolic Catholics should also aim for the restoration of the Catholic Church to focus in especially on Italy and the USA in the 21st century.  Yes, we must marshal ourselves under the banner of Christ despite finding ourselves in such evil around us daily.
