"On December 25, 1991, the Soviet hammer and sickle flag lowered for the last time over the Kremlin, thereafter replaced by the Russian tricolor. Earlier in the day, Mikhail Gorbachev resigned his post as president of the Soviet Union, leaving Boris Yeltsin as president of the newly independent Russian state. People all over the world watched in amazement at this relatively peaceful transition from former Communist monolith into multiple separate nations." https://history.state.gov/milestones/1989-1992/collapse-soviet-union

Traces of the hand of Our Lord and Our Lady behind the scenes were all over the fall of various former Soviet dictatorships in eastern europe, with significant events happening on feasts of Our Lady of Fatima.

It had been hardly 8 years since the Pope and the Bishops (on March 25th, 1984) partially Consecrated Russia and we already saw such a historically defining movement. What will we not see when it is completed fully. Many historians, even secularists, now openly credit the Catholic Church for engineering the fall of atheistic Communism, as also U.S. president Ronald Reagan and President Lech Walesa of Poland.

Another Christmas miracle in the last century took place in 1914. International freemasonry, which the Popes had long warned about, exploited divisions to provoke world war i. They had two main goals (1) to weaken and try to destroy western Christendom in Europe, and (2) to try and start their Bolshevik revolution in poor Russia, which they finally did in 1917. Only the Papacy understood what was going on, and Christ through His Vicar Pope Benedict XV implored for peace and lamented "the suicide of civilized Europe", calling for a Christmas day truce. Although worldly powers didn't want to listen to the Pope, the Prince of Peace brought a temporary peace to warring nations on Christmas day.

"Did you know? On December 7, 1914, Pope Benedict XV suggested a temporary hiatus of the war for the celebration of Christmas. The warring countries refused to create any official cease-fire, but on Christmas the soldiers in the trenches declared their own unofficial truce. Starting on Christmas Eve, many German and British troops sang Christmas carols to each other across the lines, and at certain points the Allied soldiers even heard brass bands joining the Germans in their joyous singing." https://www.history.com/.amp/topics/world-war-i/christmas-truce-of-1914 In a world gone mad and drunk on the bloodlust of war, Jesus Christ, His Popes and His Church brought peace.
Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING: "My dear Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, I hereby Offer my whole Life to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with my life, I place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all my Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all my good deeds, all my sacrifices, and the suffering of my entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father and Priests, for good Priestly vocations, and for all souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept my life Sacrifice and my offerings and give me Your grace that I may persevere obediently until my death." Amen. https://www.avemariamaternostra.com/life-offering-promises.html It is recommended that you make this Life Offering as soon as you feel ready, and to renew it from time to time.

Please read the Blessed Mother's promises in the link: those who make it seriously will face no Purgatory (promise 5) since they would have completed it here, will have all their loved ones released from Purgatory the day they offer their life with intent to persevere (promise 4), and can save the souls of all their family members in due time by their life offering (promise 3). It will benefit all souls who have ever lived until time's end (promise 2) A simple effective way for thousands of us to save millions of souls. Inflamed in Large Letters of Love, you will have your name written in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary forever (promise 1).

Not really. He couldn't even muster the strength to mention JPII by name.

When Karol Wojtyła appeared on the balcony in October 1978 I said Poland will soon be free. I guess you can credit the Church if by the Church you mean Wojtyła. Of course the primary mover and shaker was the electrician Lech Walesa and the trade unions.

The fall of the Soviet Union has nothing to do with the ridiculous consecration. It has everything to do with the bravery of the Polish people and the Polish Pope.

And yeah, I said Polish Pope without meaning it in a derogatory way.
I am going to hold a pistol to the head of the modern man. But I shall not use it to kill him, only to bring him to life.

Walesa was an agent a plant. He is no hero but a traitor. American textbooks depict him as a national hero. His code name was "bolek"

WW1 was done for the enthronement of global finance and the destruction of Germany and her economic system which was creating an incredible middle class with higher living standards than that "Royal throne of Kings." Not to mention Germany's preeminent manufacturing capabilities. I have also come across media giving the Czar credit for "liberalizing" his society, thus beginning to usher in a powerful Russia with oil and agriculture. Rockefeller and the Wall Street oligarchs couldn't have that competition. Hence, 1917.
Pray for the Consecration.

Glory to God that the beast that was, is not, and will be has been thrown into the flames of fire where it belongs. May God prolong that dreadful day when the Final Antichrist comes - that will be hard to deal with considering the demon that was the Soviet Union, and what it did to our world.

But now that the beast is dead, we await the death of the disciples - God willing.


One of the Martyrs of the Russian Orthodox Church, Hilarion Troitsky, Archbishop, was imprisoned when Lenin died, and when he heard about Lenin's death, he stood up, and said to the other imprisoned priests:
"Just think, Fathers, what is happening in Hell - Lenin himself has arrived - what a festival for the demons!"
