His Holiness Pope Gregory XVII
Long live His Holiness Pope Gregory XVII...!!!
Short Biographical Sketch
In a simple as well as brief manner, I shall try to explain for the information and benefit of the reader a few of the most important biographical details, as well as the more outstanding apostolic labours up to the present day, of the towering and sublime figure of His Holiness Pope Gregory XVII, Vicar of Christ.
1. POPE AND EMPEROR
This Pope, who is at the same time future military Leader and Emperor, chosen by God to carry out an immense task in the Church and in the world, enshrines a profound apocalyptic mystery. If we examine the prophecies of the Bible, study carefully the Apocalypse and call to mind the various revelations given to many Saints and Mystics, we shall see reflected clearly and unmistakably those characteristic features which describe the eminent and mystic figure of Pope Gregory XVII, 'De Gloria Olivae', the Pope of the Cross and the Sword who, with God's help and strength, has the arduous and exalted mission of re-establishing order in the Church and in the world. No one shall be able to slow down his pace, for he has been chosen by God as His active instrument, violent and destructive towards the enemies of the Church.
His Holiness Pope Gregory XVII, in the world Clemente Dominguez y Gomez, named after his predecessor Pope Saint Clement I, was born in Spain in the beautiful, historic, artistic and Marian City of Seville on the 23rd April 1946. In the city of his birth, a town laden with the perfume of the most delicate Marian devotion, adorned with the most worthy and unique title 'land of Mary Most Holy', his powerful personality was moulded. The future great prophet of the last times showed himself to be a spirited youth, with a certain attachment to the world and its vanities, but with the most tender filial love towards the Virgin Mary.
3. EL PALMAR DE TROYA - THE FIRST APPARITIONS
An event of overwhelming importance gives a new and definitive turn to his life. On the 30th of March 1968, the Most Holy Virgin Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, appears over a small mastic-tree (lentisco) in the village of El Palmar de Troya in the Province of Seville. There are various seers, of different age and sex. The young Clemente visits the place of apparitions several times out of curiosity, kneels and prays, preserving an attitude of respect in the presence of those unusual mystical happenings. However, the grace of God is not long resisted by a simple heart, and Clemente's faith, at the time wavering, is transformed into a solid bastion. It is the 15th August 1969. From then on Clemente Dominguez, in his innermost soul, senses an overwhelming need to frequent El Palmar, to lead the prayers and see that others observe the order and respect required in every sacred place.
4. CLEMENTE, THE CHIEF SEER
The first vision of the young Clemente Dominguez occurs at nightfall on the 30th of September 1969. From that time on, he was to become the most significant of El Palmar's messengers. With Clemente, Heaven is generous in marvellous apparitions. His ecstasies are indescribably elevated, profound and beautiful. The numerous messages consist of a continuous plea for prayer and penance, an anguished invitation to El Palmar, a denunciation of the heresy and progressivism which are pitilessly desolating the Church. The cry of the Most Holy Virgin, through Her messenger, is accompanied close at hand with prodigious signs which assure the authenticity of these apparitions, namely conversions, miraculous cures, stigmata,... Nevertheless, in spite of all, the local Church hierarchy, in arbitrary fashion, condemns El Palmar de Troya. This was the reply of arrogant men. But the Most Holy Virgin's cry becomes more forceful, more insistent.
5. THE APOSTASY OF THE ROMAN CHURCH
THE MARTYR POPE, PAUL VI
The greater part of the Cardinals, Bishops and Priests have apostatized. The reigning Pope, Saint Paul VI, is the innocent victim of freemasonry and communism which actually govern the Church. The Pope is kept under drugs, he is a prisoner within the walls of the Vatican, unable to do or decide anything save what the enemies of the Church ordain. The true doctrine of the Church has been adulterated; the Most Holy Sacrament profaned; the Blessed Virgin set aside. We are in the first general apostasy of the last times. One sole place of salvation remains: El Palmar de Troya, beacon and stronghold of the Faith, depository of Holy Tradition, seminary of the true teachings, altar where the one true Sacrifice of the Mass is offered. Away from El Palmar reign darkness, confusion and error.
6. CHASTISEMENTS ANNOUNCED
The Most Holy Virgin Mary through Her messenger, cries out unceasingly from the desert of El Palmar de Troya, now to be called Mount of Christ the King. She announces terrible chastisements: atomic war, civil wars, earthquakes, every kind of misery. The
Wrath of the Most High is ready to fall upon perverse mankind implacably, as never before. Souls are needed who shall immolate themselves. Only intense prayer and penance can mitigate the impending catastrophe.
7. THE DEVOTEES OF THE LENTISCO
At El Palmar de Troya a group of laypeople and the occasional priest remain on their knees hour after hour, day after day, dose to the Lentisco before the Holy Face of Our Lord and the Sacred Image of Our Crowned Mother of El Palmar. Here only are the embers that keep the Church alive; since, although the Vicar of Christ is obliged to reside in apostate Rome, the true Church manifests herself integrally at El Palmar de Troya. A deep mystery!
8. WAR AGAINST CLEMENTE
The mission of young Clemente Dominguez is daily more arduous and difficult. Satan undertakes strenuous warfare against him. A tidal wave of slander and other smears breaks violently over the poor messenger. The desert of El Palmar de Troya becomes a field of battle. Clemente Dominguez, with the help and strength of God, stands firm in defence of the truth. His numerous and powerful enemies cannot resist; they fall back and are routed. El Palmar de Troya, true Church of Christ, is the work of God. And who shall dare to declare war against God?
9. PILGRIMS COME THRONGING TO EL PALMAR
But the mission of Clemente Dominguez is not confined to the Sacred Place of Apparitions. Our Lord orders him to send His Messages of salvation to the ends of the earth. All, clergy and laity alike, are invited to the great wedding feast. The diffusion of the Messages is prolific, without distinction of nation or race. Many faithful of Spain and other parts of the world transform their homes into new ‘Lentiscos' and from them are joined to El Palmar in prayer and penance. These are the prayer-groups or cenacles, fruit of the young seer's apostolate. Many of these faithful come frequently on large pilgrimages to El Palmar de Troya. The streets of many cities and towns of Spain and outside of Spain are flooded with the Messages from El Palmar. The Marian Apostles do not lose heart in the face of many difficulties, but make the truth known with valour and decision. Salvation is in el Palmar de Troya, and war is declared against Satan openly and courageously.
10. GOD'S MESSENGER
But Heaven demands still more. The young Clemente Dominguez becomes the travelling Apostle, bearer of the truth. Without grudging fatigue, God's messenger tours the cities of Spain many times, visiting the prelates of the Church, bringing fresh spirit to the sheep scattered throughout the nation. Indefatigable traveller, bearer of the light!
11. CLEMENTE VISITS EUROPE AND AMERICA
Beyond the frontier his footsteps and zeal sprinkle the highways of Europe with Palmarian spirituality. He crosses the ocean and tours the American continent from north to south, especially Hispano-America. He visits the Church Hierarchy, hands over the messages, enlivens the faith of many laypeople. The great messenger of El Palmar de Troya does not flag on his journeys although frequent and hectic. His voice is heard resonant and firm in numberless gatherings full of clergy and laity. All are invited to the great wedding feast.
12. THE OBDURATE SHEPHERDS
The shepherds of the Church, however, are in their majority too degenerate to hear the call of God. Others, cowardly, shield themselves comfortably behind a false and sickening obedience.
13. ROME HAS APOSTATIZED
And what shall we say of the journeys of Clemente Dominguez to Rome? The Apocalypse describes presently Rome in simple and precise terms: 'The Great Harlot that, seated upon seven hills, holds in her hand a golden cup full of the abominations and the unclean-ness of her immorality'. She who had been the permanent centre of Christianity is now a hive of corruption. Freemasonry and Communism have scaled the heights of the Church and occupy the chief posts: nothing can now be expected from Rome that is not blasphemy, corruption and error. In the centre, however, of all that putrefaction there shines a single gleam of light, constant, inextinguishable, oppressed, almost unappreciated. It is the white and exhausted figure of the Vicar of Christ, Saint Paul VI, who sacrifices himself in silence as victim for the Church.
14. OTTAVIANI THE FIGHTER
To go to Rome is to place one's head in the lion's mouth. The Messages of Clemente Dominguez are compromising. Also to pagan and idolatrous Rome he comes as messenger of God. His Messages and other documents are handed over to the Pope and published by different organs of the Church. By the side of the Roman Pontiff, almost forgotten, remains Cardinal Ottaviani, who on several occasions received Clemente Dominguez in his apartments, and served as intermediary between him and the Vicar of Christ. Reflected in his countenance was to be seen a certain severity, the intransigence of one who did not waver, the sweetness of one who loves and suffers in silence. This holy Cardinal did not hold his peace in the face of progressivism, nor at any moment did he accept the two villains elected in Rome after the death of Saint Paul VI.
15. CLEMENTE AND POPE PAUL VI
How many times the sweet and venerable Martyr of the Vatican was to tremble with joy at Clemente's powerful voice crying out with loving accent1 'long live the Pope!' How many times the trembling hand of the Vicar of Christ was to stretch out longingly to receive the documents which the intrepid messenger reached out to him as he passed! And how many were the occasions when the Pope replied lovingly with his penetrating and suffering gaze as he paternally gave him his blessing! Mysterious and profound mutual understanding! for the white and broken figure of the vicar of Christ is present and visible in El Palmar de Troya, appearing frequently to some of the seers.
16. LAST CALL TO THE SHEPHERDS
The last time Clemente visits the Hierarchy of the Church is during the long journey made towards the end of 1975. The messenger of God covers one by one the principal dioceses of Spain and the rest of Europe. It is the last loving call of the Virgin. O miserable prevarication of the Shepherds! They are become predatory wolves, poisonous vermin, cringing toads.
17. PARABLE OF THE WEDDING FEAST
Our Lord discards them; and, as in the parable of the wedding feast, He sends out to the highways and byways to call poor sinners, the ignorant, the most despised of this world, the simple and humble of heart; and there begins the restoration of His Church, to the greater confusion and scorn of the proud.
A new spring begins in the Church.
18. THE CARMELITES OF THE HOLY FACE
On the 23rd of December 1975, Clemente Dominguez, by order of Our Lord Jesus Christ, founds the religious Order of the Last Times, 'The Carmelites of the Holy Face', in its different branches, whose mission it is to save the Church and prepare the way for the Second Coming of Christ. It is that most rigorous "Order of Sackcloth" of which so many prophecies speak. It is the greatest of all Religious Orders, and the only one that will endure. Its members will be holy and valiant warriors: the Crossbearers, who together with the Cross shall bear the sword. All the other religious orders will disappear, and many of their members will be absorbed into the new Order. Satan will not prevail against her; she will spread to the ends of the earth, and the number of her children will grow beyond belief. This foundation is the prelude to other great events already close.
