"Pray very much for the Pope, Bishops, and Priests." Our Lady of Akita, Japan - July 6, 1973. The messages were given to Sr. Agnes.
"The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres...churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord." Our Lady of Akita - Oct. 13, 1973
“My loving daughter, listen carefully to what I have to say, and tell your superior about it. As I previously told you, if people do not repent, God will send a terrible punishment. When this happens it will be more severe than ever before. Worse than at the time of the flood. A fire will fall from heaven. Most of humanity will be destroyed. Neither priests nor the faithful will be spared. Survivors will be in such desolation they will envy the dead. The only weapons left to you will soon be the Rosary and the sign of my Son. Pray the Rosary. Pray for the Pope, bishops and priests with the Rosary.”
