"Within a short time, daughter, only a few priests will be left, who will obey the luminous voice [The Pope in Exile] which is in command of all men on earth, as the Chief of the Holy Church."
"The enemies of the Pontiff, hungering for blood and avenging, in their hatred and raging, have written above his head, while being Father to so many souls, this word:
'We shall notch our swords upon those men whom we want to saw apart and break off'."
It was only one cry resounding throughout Heaven:
"Lord, save the Pontiff from the mortal dominion of the avengers of his life!"
"Shortly", the Blessed Virgin went on, "my Son will strike with scourges this city [usurped Rome] where ungodliness spreads out from day to day. Fresh sacrileges will be performed, profanations stirring up indignation among the people. The enemies of the Church will decide about new crimes, which will have pious hearts bleeding out."
