As we mentioned in yesterday's editorial, today we shall
reveal the five purported prophecies imparted to Lourdes
visionary Saint Bernadette Soubirous by the Blessed Mother, including
the blockbuster FIFTH PROPHECY. In 1879 the letters were submitted to
Pope Leo XIII who had been supreme
pontiff foronly a year, having followed in the footsteps of Pope Pius IX, the pope who not
only proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, but the one who ruled during
the Apparitions at Lourdes in 1858 and who gave the apparition
ecclesial approbation in 1862. The letters were never revealed by Leo
nor his successor Pope Saint Pius X.
In fact, shortly before the turn of the century the letters were misplaced and
thVatican lost track. Fast forward a century later. Deep in the bowels
of the Vatican Library, amid the many volumes of materials, Father Antoine LaGrande, a researcher on
Lourdes came across an iron box. Voila. Upon opening it he discovered what
he and now it can be shared with the world. It is by the Providence of God that it has
been found and found now...in God's time! It was first revealed
earlier this year in an article by a Vincenzo Sardi in the tabloid Weekly World News. While we are
skeptical about anything appearing in such a publication of that type, we have
reason to believe it has a basis.
There were five pages and on each page was listed one of  the prophecies. The first four have
already been fulfilled and we will first touch on them briefly.

The first dealt with the fact that Lourdes would become a
renowned center for healing after Bernadette's death. This it has. In fact Leo authorized
that in 1883 the magnificent Church of the Rosary be built. Since that time millions have
 visited the shrine and countless faithful have been healed physically and spiritually.

The second dealt with something few realized in 1879 when Thomas Alva Edison
was still tinkering with electrodes and the advent of what Our Lady referred to as
"scientific achievements in harnessing lighting.' This, of course was
 electricity and it was just around the corner, literally in lighting the world and taking the
 world into a new dimension that has passed all expectations. This, the Blessed Mother said,
 would begin before the 20th century dawned. Two down, three to go.
 The third was not as encouraging but, like the others, also came to pass when
Our Lady foretold of the terrible evil that would rise up in Germany and stifle most of Europe...  (WWII)
  The third prophecy predicted that man would walk on the moon...
 Consider the fact that in 1879 the Wright Brothers were still nearly a quarter of
 century away from even coming on the scene, let alone the tremendous leap in
 technology that would allow man to fly to other planets! That is four prophecies that have
 definitely been fulfilled.
 
And now the Fifth Prophecy:
Following are the exact words of Bernadette: "Your Holiness, the Virgin has told me that when the 20th century
 passes away, with it will pass away the Age of Science. A new Age of Faith will dawn
around the world. Proof will come at last that it was Our Lord Who created
the world and man, and this will be the beginning of the end for the
 scientists, in whom the people will cease to believe. Millions will return to Christ, a
as the numbers of believers swell, the power of the Church will grow as never
before. Also causing many to turn their backs on science will be the
arrogance of physicians who use their knowledge to create an abomination.
These doctors will find the means to combine the essence of a man and the essence of a beast. The
 people will know in their hearts that this is wrong, but they will be powerless
 to stop the spawning of such monsters. In the end they will hunt scientists down as
 ravening wolves  are hunted. On the eve of the year 2000, a final clash between
 the followers of Mohammed and the Christian nations of the world will take place.
 A furious  battle will be waged in which 5,650,451 soldiers are killed and
a bomb of great  power will fall on a city in Persia. But in the fullness of
 time the sign of the cross will prevail and all of Islam will be forced to convert to
 Christianity. There will follow a century of peace and joy as all the nations of the
 earth lay down their swords and shields. Great prosperity will follow as the Lord
 showers His blessings down upon the faithful. No family on earth will know
 poverty or  hunger. One person in ten will be granted by God the power to
 heal and they will  cast out all sicknesses from those who seek their aid. Many will
rejoice at these  miracles.
The 21st Century will come to be known as the Second Golden Age of   Mankind."
