shall inundate Ireland seven years before the End so that the devil may not
rule over that people." (St. Patrick)
"Seven years before the Last Day the sea shall submerge Ireland in one
inundation." (St. Columbkille)
"The sea will come over Ireland seven years before the day of
judgment." (St. Nennius)
"The sea shall overwhelm Ireland seven years before the judgment."
"In the latter ages destitution will fall upon many people, and whenever
the English will commit great evils against the children of Eire, then the
English will be expelled and Eire become the property of her rightful
owners." (St. Maeltamhlacht, 7th century)
(Note). This prophecy, which was made five centuries before the English began
to subdue Ireland, is given here merely to confirm that ours are the Last
Times, for Ireland is now an independent nation even though the Northern part
is still under English control.
"Ireland will undergo English oppression for a week of centuries but will
preserve her fidelity to God and His Church. At the end of this time Ireland
will be delivered and the English in turn must suffer severe chastisements.
Ireland, however will be instrumental in bringing back the English to the unity
of the Faith." (St. Patrick, 12th century)
(Note). This prophecy was made four centuries before the (heretical) Anglican
Church was founded.
"The English will betray each other, as a result of which their
sovereignty will be broken, and they will stain their swords and battle-axes
with blood ... The English and the Irish of Ireland will unite in one
confederation against the forces of the Saxons ... One monarch will rule in
Ireland, over the English and the pure Irish. From the reign of that man, the
people shall suffer no destitution." (St. Senanus, 6th century)
AN IRISH PROPHECY FOR OUR TIMES
Lately, I have felt called to study Catholic Prophecy, once again.
One of the saints I came across was St. Columbcille - an Irish Saint. . Most of
the following information comes from a book on Catholic Prophecy (write me if
you would like more info. on the book).
Saint Columbcille was a famous Irish saint and seer who lived between 521 and
597 AD. Most of his prophecies involve Ireland, and he successfully predicted
many events in Irish history such as the great potato famine and the advent of
The following is St. Columbcille’s prophecies that seem to point to our present
day and age:
"Hearken, thou, until I relate things that shall come to pass in the
latter ages of the world. Great carnage shall be made, justice shall be
outraged, multitudinous evils, great suffering shall prevail, and many unjust
laws will be administered. The time shall come when they will not perform
charitable acts, and truth shall not remain in them, and truth shall not remain
in them. They will plunder the property of the church, they will be continually
sneering at each other, they will employ them at reading and writing. They will
scoff at acts of humility; there will come times of dark affliction, of
scarcity, monarchs will be addicted to falsehood. Neither justice nor covenant
will be observed by any one people of the race of Adam; they will become
hard-hearted and penurious, and will be devoid of piety. The clergy will become
fosterers, in consequence of the tidings of wretchedness; churches will be held
in bondage by the all-powerful men of the day.
NOTE AS GIVEN FROM THE BOOK ON PROPHECY: It definitely seems like this saint is
talking about our current time when he speaks of the decline of the Church and
the path to perdition being taken by some members of the clergy in regards to
the recent abuse scandal.
"Judges will administer injustice, under the sanction of powerful,
outrageous kings; the common people will adopt false principles. Oh, how
lamentable shall be their position! Doctors of science will have cause to
murmur, they will become ungenerous in spirit; the aged will mourn in deep
sorrow, on account of the woeful times that shall prevail. Cemeteries shall
become all red, in consequence of the wrath that will follow sinners; wars and
contentions shall range in the bosoms of every family. Excellent men shall be
steeped in Poverty, the people will become inhospitable to their guests, the
voice of the parasite shall be more agreeable to them than the melody of the harp
touched by the sage's finger. In consequence of the general prevalence of
sinful practices, humility shall produce no fruit. The professors of science
shall not be rewarded, amiability shall not characterize the people; prosperity
and hospitality shall not exist, but destitution will assume their place. The
changes of the seasons shall produce only half their verdure, the regular
festivals of the Church will not be observed; all classes of men shall be
filled with hatred and enmity toward each other. The people will not associate
affectionately with each other during the great festivals of the seasons; they
will live devoid of justice and rectitude, up from the youth of tender age to
the aged. The clergy shall be led into error by the misinterpretation of their
reading; the Relics of the Saints will be considered powerless, every race of
mankind will become wicked!
NOTE AS GIVEN FROM THE BOOK ON PROPHECY: Although this all seems a bit extreme,
it nonetheless points to our day and age which is filled with lack of belief
and the decline in the Church. Unlike during this prophet’s time, many regular
Catholic festivals are scarcely mentioned let alone observed in our day.
"Young women will become unblushing, the aged people will be of irascible
temper; the kine will seldom be productive, as of old; lords will become
murderers. Young people will decline in vigor, they will despise those who have
hoary (gray) hair; there will be no standard by which morals may be regulated,
and marriages will be solemnized without witnesses. Troublous shall be the
latter ages of the world, the dispositions of the generality of men I will
point out, from the time they shall abandon hospitable habits -- with the view
of winning honor for themselves, they will hold each other as objects for
ridicule. The possessors of abundance shall fall through the multiplicity of
their falsehoods; covetousness shall take possession of every glutton, and when
satisfied their arrogance shall know no bounds. Between mother and daughter
anger and bitter sarcasms shall continuously exist; neighbors will become
treacherous, cold, and false-hearted towards each another. The gentry will
become grudgeful, with respect to their trifling donations; and blood relations
shall become cool towards each other; Church livings shall become lay property.
Such is the description of the people who shall live in the ages to come; more
unjust and iniquitous shall be very succeeding race of men. The trees shall not
bear the usual quantity of fruit, fisheries shall become unproductive and the
earth shall not yield its usual abundance. Inclement Weather and famine shall
come and fishes shall forsake the rivers. The people will be oppressed for lack
of food, shall pine to death. Dreadful Storms and Hurricanes shall afflict them.
Numberless Diseases shall then prevail. Fortifications shall be built narrow
during these times of dreadful danger.
NOTE AS GIVEN FROM THE BOOK ON PROPHECY: It is interesting that this prophet
describes the fisheries as being in decline during the latter days, something
that is a serious reality now as fish stocks continue to be depleted.
"Then a great event shall happen. I fail not to notice it: rectitude shall
be its specious motive, and if ye be not truly holy, a more sorrowful event
could not possibly happen.
NOTE AS GIVEN FROM THE BOOK ON PROPHECY: This prophet’s lofty Irish vocabulary
makes this passage somewhat difficult to comprehend, but the basic message here
is that a great, worldwide event will take place while the world lives in sin.
This event will be so great that everyone on earth will witness or experience
it. Goodness or righteousness will not be the reason for this event to take
place if you are a faithless person, because this event will be terrifying for
you. This prophecy sounds similar to the idea of an Illumination of
Consciences, foretold by other saints, where everyone on earth will suddenly
see themselves as God sees theirs souls, in that it will be terrifying for
St. Columbcille also alludes to other "natural disasters" in his
Let us all be prepared SPIRITUALLY for whatever is to come. Ignorance of
prophecy is not necessarily bliss. I do not bring prophecy up to alarm you, but
to prepare you.

1st Get to confession (and of course, Mass!)
2nd Wander around the website. There are many items to help you prepare
SPIRITUALLY! We recommend this item.
