Pope Francis left the Vatican to make a surprise visit Sunday in Rome to pray to an idol of the Virgin Mary and asking for the end of the coronavirus pandemic
This thing keeps getting weirder and weirder, and from and end times perspective, Pope Francis yesterday just kicked the current COVID-19 coronavirus New World Order panic into hyper mode. First we have the Revelation 17 scary imagery of Pope Francis going on walkabout through the deserted streets of Rome, with his 5-man security detail covering his every move, casting his gaze as if to say “I own this land, and I own you”. The pope was on a mission to make contact with his true source of strength and guidance, a person the bible calls the Queen of Heaven, and who the Roman Catholic church calls the Virgin Mary.
“But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.” Jeremiah 44:18,22 (KJB)
Italy is on lockdown right now, almost no one is allowed to walk the streets, no one except Pope Francis of course. Seeing him patrol the empty avenues like a shark looking for prey is an image that will not quickly leave my mind. This is like watching all the end times rapture and tribulation movies, books and gospel tracts coming to life before our very eyes all at once. It feels like we are sitting on the cusp of the revelation of Antichrist. Maybe not, but if so, then that means Flight #777 taking off is ever closer than we think.
Pope Francis prayed before an icon of the Virgin Mary dedicated to the ‘salvation of the Roman people.’
FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS: Pope Francis who recently had a cold, headed first to a Rome basilica, St. Mary Major, where he often stops to give thanks after returning from trips abroad. There he prayed before an icon of the Virgin Mary dedicated to the “salvation of the Roman people.”
“With his prayer, the Holy Father has invoked the end of the pandemic that is striking Italy and the world, implored for healing for the many sick, recalled the so many victims of these days and asked that their family members and friends find consolation and comfort,”′ Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said in a statement.
The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, announced the Pope’s visits in a communique on Sunday.
“This afternoon, just after 4 PM, Pope Francis left the Vatican and made a private visit to the Basilica of St. Mary Major, to offer a prayer to the Virgin Mary, Salus Populi Romani, where her icon is kept and venerated. Then, after taking a walk along the Via del Corso – as if making a pilgrimage – he visited the church of San Marcello on the Corso, where a miraculous crucifix is housed. In 1522 it was carried in procession throughout the neighborhoods of the city so that the “Great Plague” might cease in Rome. With his prayer, the Holy Father pleaded for an end to the pandemic that has struck Italy and the world. He also implored the healing of the many sick people, remembered the numerous victims of these past days, and asked that their families and friends might find consolation and comfort. His prayer intention was also extended to healthcare workers, doctors, nurses, and all those working in these days to guarantee the smooth functioning of society. The Holy Father returned to the Vatican around 5:30 PM.” READ MORE
After that, the 83-year-old pope left the basilica, near Rome’s central train station, and headed toward central Piazza Venezia, strolling along a brief stretch of Via del Corso, a noted shopping street for Romans. He then ducked into a church that most tourists pass by, St. Marcel on the Corso.
The church keeps a “miraculous crucifix that in 1522 was carried in procession through the neighborhoods of the city so that the Great Plague of Rome ended,″ Bruni said.
Some 90 minutes after he left Vatican City, Francis was back.
In ordinary times, the Via del Corso would be thronged with Sunday strollers and window-shoppers, but very few Romans are on the streets these days. A national lock-down allows people to go out to work, to purchase essentials like food or medicine or to take care of those in need.
A sole cyclist was pedaling down the street when Francis, in his white robes and with a security detail walking behind, approached the St. Marcel church.
The pope’s prayerful foray across town came just hours after the Holy See announced that the Vatican’s Holy Week ceremonies will go ahead without the public Italy tries to contain its coronavirus outbreak. Bruni said “as far as Holy Week liturgical celebrations are concerned, I can specify that all are confirmed.”
But Bruni added: “As things stand, understudy are the ways they would be carried out and who would participate while respecting the security measures put in place to avoid spread of the coronavirus.” He added that in any case, faithful will be able to follow the ceremonies on TV, radio and through online media.
