These “Comments” have more than once quoted Our Lady saying in Japan in 1973, “Only I can help you now.” It is typical of the wisdom of Archbishop Vigano to take Her seriously. Not all readers of these “Comments” will have seen how he pleaded with Her last month:—
Noble Lady and Queen of Heaven, do look upon us, your children, in this hour of darkness and affliction. Deign to hear and fulfil our humble and confident prayer, in an hour when the Enemy’s forces are multiplying in an assault from Hell upon God, upon His Church and upon the entire human family.
As a model and example of humility and obedience to the will of God; enlighten our rulers for them to remember that the authority they exert belongs to God before Whom they will answer, the just Judge, for the good they will have done and the evil they will have committed. Virgin most Faithful, teach those in charge of public affairs to honour the moral obligations of their office by refusing any kind of connivance with vice or error.
As our Intercessor in front of the Throne of God, you cure our ills of body and soul and you are rightly called upon as Health of the Sick; guide now the doctors and medical workers in their profession, and help them to look after the sick and to tend to the weakest. Give them courage to stand up to whosoever would force them to kill people or make them ill by inappropriate treatment or harmful medicine. Ask the divine Doctor of Souls, Our Lord, to awaken in their conscience the sense of their true role and duty to promote life and bodily health.
As a fugitive to Egypt you saved your divine Son from the massacre of Herod; save our children from the moral and material threats which hang over them, protect them from the true plague of sin and vice, and from the criminal plans of the ideological dictatorship seeking to crush them in body and soul. Give strength to parents and educators, to enable them to stand up to a dangerous and morally illicit drug being tried out on children. Frustrate the attempts of those attacking their innocence, who strive to pervert them at their tenderest age by misleading their intelligence and corrupting their morals.
In passing from this world to eternal life you were consoled by the presence of your Son; be close now to the sick, to the aged, to the dying, especially to those who are being forced by inhuman rules to face death alone in a hospital bed without the sacraments. Bring them comfort by inspiring them with sorrow for their sins, and with the desire to offer their sufferings in reparation for sins committed, so that they may leave this life with the consolation of dying in the friendship of God.
As the Mother of Priests; give light to our Shepherds to open their eyes to the present threat, to make them coherent witnesses of Christ your Son, brave defenders of the flock entrusted to them by the Lord, valiant adversaries of error and vice. Free them, Virgin most Holy, from all human respect and connivance with sin. Set them on fire with the love of God and neighbour, enlighten their mind and arouse their will.
In front of you the demons of Hell flee; destroy the diabolical plans of this hateful tyranny, the deceit of the pandemic, the lies of the workers of iniquity. Let the light of Truth shine forth above the lies, just as the true light of Christ shines above the darkness of error and sin. Confound your enemies, and humble beneath your feet the proud head of all those daring to defy Heaven, and seeking to establish the kingdom of the Antichrist.
As Mediatrix of all Graces and our Co-redemptrix, by divine decree; obtain for us the grace to see the Triumph of your Immaculate Heart, to which we consecrate ourselves, our families, our communities, our Church, our homeland and the entire world.
So be it, on the Feast of the Ascension, Archbishop Viganò, 13 May, 2021
