Don Stefano Gobbi’s Message of Good Bye
Don Stefano Gobbi’s message of Good Bye
Two weeks before Don Stefano Gobbi died, he said to two priests with him, to read the message of October 18, 1975, which describes what we are living today.
From the book, “Don Stefano Gobbi – Testimonianze” (https://cibo-spir.blogspot.com/2018/12/don-stefano-gobbi-testimonianze.html), we read:
“But the book that he (Don Stefano Gobbi) always had with him was the ‘Blue Book” (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/) which, more than just reading it, he meditated, so as to contemplate the wonderful designs of God by way of the Creature most loved by God (Mary). Also when we met and we talked about some event or problem, rather than offering his opinion, he often said: “Take the book and open it” and he would indicate a message that was always very pertinent. And so it was in the last meeting that we had on June 12, 2011, the day of Pentecost. After the Holy Mass we retired with him in his room while waiting for lunch time. He asked us what do the newspapers say regarding the new Archbishop which would be chosen for Milan. On that occasion he invited us to fear nothing and he indicated the message of October 18, 1975, ‘BE JOYOUS’, which practically summarizes the whole state of affairs of the Church and of the world today. It was his message of Good bye. He exhorted us to remain in joy! She, the Mamma, would have thought of everything and would never abandon the Church, and even less her beloved sons” (https://cibo-spir.blogspot.com/2018/12/don-stefano-gobbi-testimonianze.html).
Here is part of the message of October 18, 1975 (to read the full message, visit: https://our-lady-priests.blogspot.com/2015/10/our-lady-priests-1975.html):
a “I have chosen you, my son, for this simple reason: because you are the poorest, the smallest and the most limited. Humanly speaking, you are the most destitute.
b I have chosen you because in your past life my Adversary had almost succeeded in claiming a victory. In your life, I have had you live, as if by anticipation, the experience of what I myself will do at the moment of my great triumph.
c MY ADVERSARY WILL ONE DAY THINK THAT HE IS CELEBRATING A COMPLETE VICTORY: over the world, over the Church, over souls.
d It will be only then that I will intervene – terrible and victorious – that his defeat may be all the greater when he is certain in his conviction that he has conquered once for all.
e What is in preparation is so extraordinary that it’s like has never happened since the creation of the world. That is why everything has already been predicted in the Bible.
f The terrible struggle between me, the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and the Red Dragon, Satan, who has now succeeded in seducing many even with the error of Marxist atheism, has already been foretold to you. The struggle between the angels together with my children and the followers of the dragon led by the rebellious angels has already been foretold to you. Above all, my complete victory has already been clearly foretold.
g You, my sons, have been called to live through these events.
h It is now the time for you to know this, that you may be consciously prepared for the battle. This is now the time for me to begin disclosing part of my plan.
i First of all, it is necessary that my Enemy have the impression of having conquered everything, of having everything now in his hands. This is why he will be permitted to penetrate even into the interior of my Church, and he will succeed in plunging the sanctuary of God into darkness. He will reap the greatest number of victims from among the ministers of the sanctuary.
j This will in fact be a time of great falls on the part of my beloved sons, my priests.
k Satan will seduce some of them by pride, others by love of the flesh, others by doubts, others by unbelief, and still others by discouragement and loneliness.
l How many will have doubts about my Son and about me and will believe that this is the end of my Church!
m Priests consecrated to my Immaculate Heart, my beloved sons whom I am gathering together for this great battle, the first weapon that you must make use of is trust in me. It is your complete abandonment to me.
n Conquer the temptation of fear, of discouragement, of sadness. Distrust paralyzes your activity and greatly benefits my Adversary.
o Be serene; be joyful!
p This is not the end of my Church; what is in preparation is the beginning of its total and marvelous renewal!
q The Vicar of my Son, in virtue of a gift I grant to him, is already able to foresee this, and though living in the present moment of sadness, he invites you to be joyous.
r `To be joyous?’ you ask me, all surprised.
s Yes, my sons, in the joy of my Immaculate Heart where I enfold you all. My motherly Heart will be for you the place of your peace, while outside the most violent storm is raging.
t Even if you have been wounded, even if you have fallen many times, even if you have doubted, even if at certain times you have betrayed your calling, do not become discouraged, because I love you! (…)”
Pope John Paul II said to a group of pilgrims in Fulda, West Germany, in November 1980, speaking about the secrets of Fatima, that: “We have to be prepared to suffer, before long, great trials which will require of us the disposition to sacrifice even our life for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is still possible to diminish this trial (predicted at Fatima), but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only in this manner can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the renewal of the Church been brought about in blood! It will not be different this time.”
MANY OF US, OR RATHER MOST OF US, DO NOT WANT TO OPEN OUR EYES TO REALITY AND TO TRUTH, because we want everything the way we want it, and we trust ourselves more than God. We have let our lives slowly slip far away from reality and from truth, because there is so little prayer and so much sin. And so we have slid in this easier direction of “IGNORANCE IS BLISS”! This is why so many people are no longer able to distinguish between the beautiful lies of the highly controlled TV, and Social Media, and the Truth, and thus the world elite can easily manipulate us toward their total world dictat0rship that in the end will be far worse than any dictat0rship in the history of the world. The world dictat0rship is guided by Mas0nry which is guided by Satan. Using the television, the mainstream media, the schools and religious institutions, people have been DUMBED-DOWN so that they are not able to distinguish between good or evil (Is 5:20) so as to be easily led by the elite of the world to their ATHEISTIC W0RLD DICTAT0RSHIP of total slavery. But reality and truth do not change because both come from God Who does not change. The Truth is God (Jn 14:6).
If we believe it or not, we human beings are not animals; we human beings have an immortal soul made in the image of God (Gen 1:26-27). Even though most of us have taken the easier path of ignoring this fact and thus ignoring our great responsibility before God and before other human beings, the consequences of our actions are real, for better or for worse, now and for all eternity! For most people today, a sin is a sin only if you are caught, even if our sins caused great harm to others in a hidden way. This is why abortion is justified by many because they refuse to watch an ultrasound during an abortion to discover that the fetus is a real human being which fights for survival against the instruments of abortion.
Many of us have freely chosen this path of IGNORING OUR RESPONSIBILITY for many years. Thus it will be very difficult to change directions and face life, face our responsibilities, and also pay the price for the hidden damage we have done to others, which we have conveniently closed our eyes to for so many years. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke.
But there is always hope while we are still alive on this earth to return to the Father and say as did the prodigal son: “Father I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son” (Lk 15:11-32). In the One True Church, the Catholic Church, Jesus Christ has offered us the great Sacrament of Reconciliation, as well as great helps to persevere in this change of life, especially with His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Most Holy Eucharist.
One might say: “I can’t do it, I can’t change after many years of shirking my responsibilities”. We might feel like the apostles when they heard certain words of Jesus. When the disciples “were amazed at His words”, and even “exceedingly astonished”, at the beginning of their walk with Christ, Jesus did not offer false and empty and destructive compromises as so many leaders in the Church today are offering to the numerous gullible “Christians” as we see in many churches and on TV. But rather Jesus said: “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God” (Mk 10:23-27).
We might be tempted to look only at ourselves and despair, instead of looking at Jesus, Who is God Almighty, with the help of his holy and loving Mother Mary.
But if we take that leap of faith and true repentance, and go to confession, and then Holy Communion and pray the Holy Rosary very frequently, and make many sacrifices, then it is possible to make this fundamental radical change from egoism and mortal sin, to altruism and coming back to the loving embrace of the Father and into sanctifying grace.
The saints clearly tell us that the greatest pain in hell, more than all other pains put together, is the total and absolute and eternal separation of the creature from its Creator, Who is the TRUTH! “The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God” (CCC 1035). Christ suffers more than us for our sins and indifference because Christ loves more; He loves each of us immensely!
Precisely because pastors and parents do not talk about the consequences of sin, our Lady of Fatima showed the three children hell and how many souls fall into hell everyday on July 1917 at Fatima. Lucia wrote later that if there were not a special grace and help in that moment from God, they would have died at seeing this vision of hell. On the other hand, if we were to see one instant of heaven while we are still on earth, we would die immediately of love and joy!
Since so many people today do not want to face reality and since so many priests and bishops seek to please men by offering false easy love and mercy, PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR SINS. When a lay person (or a cult member), a priest, a bishop or a false pope not canonically elected (as St. Francis of Assisi prophesied), is not willing to dialogue with those not in agreement with himself, then this person acts as if the truth comes from himself, or from the Grand Master of Mas0nry, rather than from God. In this way a great number of souls are led astray. It is interesting that today in the “modern church” many feel they can finally interpret all of Divine Revelation in the right way, as if for 2000 years the Holy Spirit made a mistake, and yet these proud “religious authorities” are cowards when it comes to answering the grave objections of cardinals and others who simply explain that we must remain faithful to the unchanging Divine Revelation as it has been explained infallibly in the documents of the Church for 2000 years. A good example of this is the “Dubia” written by four cardinals (November 2016) after the publication of ‘Amoris Laetitia’ (March 2016)! In ‘Amoris Laetitia” there is no mention (silence) of the great damage to children of separated parents and the responsibility of parents in this regard, but only what the adults want! This is in strong contrast with the teaching of the Church, up until March 2013, to safeguard the family, the fundamental cell of society, and the children, the future of society. Many times I said to my parishioners that if I, Father Joe, begin to preach in contrast to the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC; ed. 1992, promulgated by Pope John Paul II; http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/_INDEX.HTM), follow the CCC because the Truth from God does not change; DO NOT FOLLOW Father Joe to hell!!!
St. Thomas Aquinas quoting of St. Augustine, in his commentary on the right of subjects to resist flaky superiors, recalled that in St. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians, he rebuked the first pope, St. Peter, “to his face because he clearly was wrong” (Gal 2:11-14). There being an imminent danger for the Faith, prelates must be questioned, even publicly, by their subjects. Thus, St. Paul, who was a subject of St. Peter, questioned him publicly on account of an imminent danger of scandal in a matter of Faith. And, as the Glossa of St. Augustine puts it (Ad Galatas 2.14), “St. Peter himself gave the example to those who govern so that if sometimes they stray from the right way, they will not reject a correction as unworthy even if it comes from their subjects.” (Summa Theologiae, IIa IIae, Q. 33, A. 4).
Our Lady revealed to Don Stefano Gobbi:
“The cause of such a vast diffusion of errors and of this great apostasy rests with UNFAITHFUL PASTORS. They remain silent when they should speak with courage to condemn error and to defend the truth. They do not intervene when they should be unmasking the rapacious wolves who, hidden beneath the clothing of lambs, have insinuated themselves into the flock of Christ. They are mute dogs who allow their flocks to be torn to pieces.” (September 8, 1985; June 11, 1988).
“By your word, which will repeat ever more loudly and clearly the truth which my Son Jesus has come to reveal to you. Do you see how many of your brother-priests BETRAY this truth, in the attempt to adapt it to the MENTALITY of the world, impelled by a false illusion of being better understood, listened to by more people and more easily followed? No illusion is more dangerous than this.” (February 2, 1976).
“The Church of Jesus is wounded with the pernicious plague of infidelity and apostasy. In appearance, everything remains calm, and it seems that all is going well. In reality, it is being pervaded with an ever widening lack of faith which is spreading the great apostasy everywhere. Many bishops, priests, religious and faithful no longer believe and have already lost the true faith in Jesus and in his Gospel. For this reason, the Church must be purified, with persecution and with blood.” (September 6, 1986).
We human beings have a great responsibility since we were created with great dignity at the level of the angels. Thus there is not an easy middle road as so many want to imagine or invent. After death there are only two places for all eternity, two extremes: extreme unimaginable joy and delight, or extreme unimaginable pain and horror, whether we believe it or not, according to our subjective ideas and presumption, as if each one of us thinks we are God. In hell one cannot commit suicide! If I habitually command my life, rather than God, it is I, after death, who will willingly throw myself into the place where there is not God, where there are those who rebel against God and each other for all eternity! God, Who is love, will not force anyone to be with Him for eternity since He respects our eternal choice!
SAINT PADRE PIO said: “It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the HOLY MASS.” This saint also said: “The ROSARY is the weapon for these times”! A good confession (a Sacrament) is more powerful than an exorcism (a sacramental)!
Take courage my friends. Let us turn to our loving and merciful Father, with the great help of the Sacraments and of Mary with her Holy Rosary, and ask for the grace of faith, hope, charity, humility and perseverance. If we keep our eyes on Jesus and Mary, “all things are possible with God” (Mk 10:23-27).
In this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21), “the Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection” (CCC 675-677). But “IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH!” – Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal, 1917. There will be fulfilled the Protoevangelium (Gen 3:15) – Saint Louis de Montfort!
Eternity is a very long time! May God bless you help you!
Father Joseph Dwight

Read the articles that you can find in my index (https://josephdwight.wordpress.com/2015/09/21/joseph-dwight-index/), which can be very helpful in this period of great confusion full of traps from our very astute mortal enemy, Satan.

“ONE DAY, I SAW TWO ROADS. One was broad, covered with sand and flowers, full of joy, music and all sorts of pleasures. People walked along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They reached the end without realizing it. And at the end of the road there was a horrible precipice; that is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And their number was so great that it was impossible to count them. And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it was narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks; and the people who walked along it had tears in their eyes, and all kinds of suffering befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts of happiness, and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant they forgot all their sufferings.” (Diary of St. Faustina, 153)
“Today, I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell… But I noticed one thing: that most of THE SOULS THERE ARE THOSE WHO DISBELIEVED THAT THERE IS A HELL” (Diary of St. Faustina, 741).
“Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Mt 7:13-14)!

Our Lady communicated to Don Stefano Gobbi on November 22, 1992 (“To The Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons” (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/):
“My beloved ones and children consecrated to my Immaculate Heart, listen to the words of your heavenly Mother, who is gently preparing you and leading you to live through these events, because the times which were foretold to you by the prophet Zechariah have now come. `An oracle of the Lord: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be completely scattered; and then I will turn my hand against the little ones. `An oracle of the Lord’:In all the land, two thirds of them will be cut off and perish; and one third shall be left. `I will pass this third through fire; I will refine it as silver is refined, test it as gold is tested. `It will call upon my Name, and I will hear it; I will say:”This is my people.” And it will say: “The Lord is my God.” ‘ (cf. Zec 13:7-9)”
“I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be completely scattered; and then I will turn my hand against the little ones”. I believe that this coincides well with the prophecies of the FALSE POPE, who will corrupt “the little one”, especially those who have been abandoned by their parents and their pastors who have the vocation from God to protect the souls entrusted to them.
“Two thirds of them will be cut off and perish…” This means two thirds will lose their immortal souls in this period, and the third that saves their souls will pass “through fire; I will refine it as silver is refined, test it as gold is tested”! Right now there are very few people who have the courage to take the risk to open their eyes to the signs of the times so as not to be hypocrites (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3; 24:32-33,51), to go against the tide of the great majority, strongly manipulated by the highly controlled mass media, who have taken the easy way of being “politically correct”, and in particular today, in the Catholic Church (“Politically Correct in the Church – EWTN”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2017/10/politically-correct-in-church-ewtn.html)! In this period of the crucifixion of the Church, the purification of the Church and of the world, we are called to not flee from the sufferings that Jesus offers and shares with us, but to offer our lives for the Body of Christ, the Church, as did Mary, the “Queen of martyrs”, at the foot of the cross with Jesus totally covered with blood and wounds and humiliations and abandoned by almost everyone. Thus most of the very few who remain faithful to the uncomfortable truth in this period will later offer with their blood the grace for the conversion of many others so as to arrive to the prophesied one third who will save their immortal souls for all eternity. “The blood of martyrs is the seed of Christians” – Tertullian.

On November 11, 2013, Archbishop Carlo Maria VIGANÒ, the Apostolic Nuncio (Papal Ambassador) to the United States, addressed the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops at their annual fall meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
Archbishop Viganò quoted as “profoundly prophetic” remarks made by Blessed John Paul II (then Cardinal Wojtyla) during the Eucharistic Congress on Aug. 13, 1976 for the Bicentennial celebration of the signing of our Declaration of Independence:
“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the FINAL CONFRONTATION between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the Antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God’s Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously….” (Cardinal Ivan Dias also quoted this at Lourdes, France, on December 13, 2007).
Archbishop Viganò said that he viewed these words “as a call to attentiveness, watchfulness and preparedness for whatever proclaiming the Gospel may mean for us as successors of the Apostles, who were called to give radical witness to their faith in Jesus Christ.”

Pope Benedict XVI INVITED CARDINAL BIFFI TO OFFER THE ANNUAL LENTEN RETREAT for the Pope and the top members of the Vatican (Feb. 27, 2007). The cardinal speaks often on the theme of the Antichrist. The Times of London reported in 2004 that the Cardinal described the Antichrist as “walking among us”. “Days will come in Christianity in which they will try to reduce the salvific event to a mere series of values.” It is a key passage in the last work of Vladimir Soloviev, “Tale of the Antichrist”, at the center of Cardinal James Biffi’s reflections. The Russian philosopher, who died in the year 1900 with great acumen, had prophesied the tragedies of the 20th century. In the “Tale of the Antichrist”, recalled the cardinal, “THE ANTICHRIST PRESENTS HIMSELF AS PACIFIST, ECOLOGIST AND ECUMENIST. He will convoke an ecumenical council and will seek the consensus of all the Christian confessions, granting something to each one. The masses will follow him, with the exception of small groups of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants who will resist and will say to the Antichrist: ‘You give us everything, except what interests us, Jesus Christ’.” For Cardinal Biffi, this narrative is a warning: ‘Today, in fact, we run the risk of having a Christianity which puts aside Jesus with his cross and resurrection’.

Our Lady of Good Success; Quito, Ecuador (January 20, 1610), told us:
“Thus I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th century…the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of morals… As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and deeply profaned. FREEMAS0NRY, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the aim of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin and encouraging procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church… IN THIS SUPREME MOMENT OF NEED FOR THE CHURCH, THE ONE WHO SHOULD SPEAK WILL FALL SILENT.”
By now, there are many Freemas0ns in the Vatican!
It is very interesting that Our Lady of Good Success said “the ONE who should speak”; she did not say, “the ONES who should speak”, or “those who should speak”, that is, not a group of bishops, but ONE PERSON. Today people are well prepared for this underhanded and very devastating deception of silence after many years of silence about sin and about the consequences of sin on the part of almost all the fathers of the families, of the priests and of the bishops.

God has chosen “the HANDMAID of the Lord” (Lk 1:38), Mary, His Immaculate Mother, to crush the PROUD head of the ancient serpent and his followers (Gen 3:15), and to be the General with “twelve stars” in this cosmic battle against the “great red dragon” (Rev 12:1-3)! Our Lady continually tells us to consecrate ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and LIVE this consecration of obedience and total trust in our heavenly Mother. “This is the moment for all to take refuge in me, because I am the Ark of the New Covenant. At the time of Noah, immediately before the flood, those whom the Lord had destined to survive his terrible chastisement entered into the ark. In these your times, I am inviting all my beloved children to enter into the Ark of the New Covenant which I have built in MY IMMACULATE HEART for you, that they may be assisted by me to carry the bloody burden of the great trial, which precedes the coming of the day of the Lord.” (“To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons”; http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/; July 30, 1986; March 15, 1993).
