“The Devil, the Enemy of the soul, always tells us what he is up to.” Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio, contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium!

There are lots of “signs” these days.

The Devil, the Enemy of the soul, always tells us what he is up to. He puts small hints and indications right in front of our faces woven together with other things that appear to be innocent or beautiful.

Sometimes the signs the Foe reveals are compulsive. He, demons, and human agents can’t help but show them.

Other times, it’s a sort of gloating, a “Look at what I’ve done!” sign.

As for human agents, some higher ups in satanism do all they can to hide their affiliation while the lower echelon members show it off.

Nonetheless, the upper ranks still reveal something of their affiliation without thinking they are doing so.

It has ever been so, but now it seems to be accelerating.

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio, contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute, in infernum detrude.


St. Michael by Daniel Mitsui

Here are shots of the great shrine to St. Michael near Turin, which I visited last June.  This is one of the points along the “Sword of St. Michael”.

    As you have said previously, “The Devil always shows his tail.”

  2. KateD says:

    A great portent appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pangs, in the agony of giving birth. Then another portent appeared in heaven: a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. Then the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, so that he might devour her child as soon as it was born. And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. But her child was snatched away and taken to God and to his throne; and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, so that there she can be nourished for one thousand two hundred sixty days.

    Michael Defeats the Dragon

    And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they were defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

    Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, proclaiming,

    “Now have come the salvation and the power
    and the kingdom of our God
    and the authority of his Messiah,
    for the accuser of our comrades has been thrown down,
    who accuses them day and night before our God.
    But they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb
    and by the word of their testimony,
    for they did not cling to life even in the face of death.
    Rejoice then, you heavens
    and those who dwell in them!
    But woe to the earth and the sea,
    for the devil has come down to you
    with great wrath,
    because he knows that his time is short!”

    The Dragon Fights Again on Earth

    So when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to her place where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time. Then from his mouth the serpent poured water like a river after the woman, to sweep her away with the flood. But the earth came to the help of the woman; it opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured from his mouth. Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her children, those who keep the commandments of God and hold the testimony of Jesus.

    He is full of wrath, because he know his time is short. He is here to wage war against us, the children of Our Lady, who keep the commandments of God AND hold the testimony of Jesus. Perhaps this is why great saints would treat the devil with such indifference. ‘Pishaw. You again? Go away.’. That he’s surly and vindictive and

    Sorry, my fat fingers hit post accidentally!

    Anyway, praying the Hours helps.

    My company logo is St. Michael’s sword behind his shield with angel wings encircling the shield. I paid my daughter to do it. It is tattooed onto my left forearm. Most people do not know what it signifies, but that is okay; it is a personal thing between he and I.

    Regarding the penultimate photo, it appears to be part of a trend of red velvet ropes placed precisely where altar rails used to be or should be.

    The synagogue of satan is a more accurate description. But the Church hierarchy has been cucked since the disastrous Nostra Aetate, and PJPII’s apology tour. And now the world is on fire, possibly facing WWIII.

    Neat Japanese artwork. St. Paul Miki pray for us.
