on the Report of the Committe of Inquiry on the Army of Mary)
Well, we are maybe the only group, in the Church, to have kept the rich patrimony of the Roman Catholic Church, without refusing, for all that, the genuine revival which she recommends. [VA. App. III, 123] [free translation]

(press conference of 7 May 1987,
following the decree of revocation of the Army of Mary
by Cardinal Louis-Albert Vachon)
It should be noted that the Army of Mary is not the only group pushed away at the Vatican. Other movements, also FAITHFUL TO THE POPE, undergo the same fate, and we know them. And this fight intensify constantly against them and against us. Our «only wrong» is to be faithful to the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church and faithful to Her visible Head on earth.

[The featured image for this article is the page 311 of the Lignum Vitae, by Arnold de Wion, where was published for the first time the Prophecy of the Popes attributed to the Irish archbishop Saint Malachy of Armagh. Source: Wikipedia. We can see, after AXIS IN MEDIETATE SIGNI and DE RORE COELI, the second block of mottos, those that are posterior to the publication of the prophecy in 1595.]
I put back here the table that I made of the Prophecy of the Popes of Saint Malachy, and which I revised, corrected and improved. Besides Saint Joan of Arc, I saw fit to insert the women who received officially the title of «doctor of the Church»:
— Saint Teresa of Ávila (27 September 1970, by Paul VI)
— Saint Catherine of Siena (3 October 1970, by Paul VI)
— Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (19 October 1997, by John Paul II)
— Saint Hildegard of Bingen (7 October 2012, by Benedict XVI)
Marie-Paule was proclaimed herself «doctor of the Church», on 31 May 2010, by Padre-Jean-Pierre, forming with the four previous women as a «quintuple crown» of feminine doctors within the Church.
In the previous article, we said that the mottos of the modern popes were particularly «eloquent», to the point of justifying their inspired character, accrediting the Prophecy of the Popes and arousing a renewed interest for this prophecy. In fact, it all started with Pope Pius VI, who was sitting on the throne of Peter at the time of the French Revolution. His prophetic motto was:
[Pope Pius VI (1775-1799)]
Cf. Raoul Auclair, La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 20-21, 27-29.
In 1782, Pius VI made an official visit to Vienna (Austria), in an attempt at conciliation with the emperor Joseph II. This event was so extraordinary (since no pope left Italy for a very long time) that a medal was struck in commemoration. Having in mind the Prophecy of the Popes of Saint Malachy, they found most appropriate to inscribe on the medal the motto PEREGRINUS APOSTOLICUS. But that’s not the end of it. Sixteen years later, in the context of the French Revolution, the old pope will be sent into exile, traveling from one city to another. He will die, exhausted, in the citadel of Valence, in France, even before having reached his final destination.
Pius VI (Giovanni Angelico Braschi)
Born: 25 December 1717
Papacy began: 15 February 1775
Died: 29 August 1799
(«Eagle raptor or captor»)
[Pope Pius VII (1800-1823)]
Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 29-30.
Strikingly, this motto was announcing the pope by painting the portrait of his opponent. Pius VII resisted the pretensions of Napoléon Bonaparte. The French emperor decided to abduct the Roman pontiff, during a night of July, in 1809. The pope was held in captivity, not to say in confinement, for three years in Savona, Italy. Then he was transferred to the sumptuous prison of Fontainebleau, in France. We now know that the secret design of the «eagle raptor» was to install the papacy in Paris. Pius VII was ready to abdicate, if such a scenario were to happen. The fall of the Eagle in 1814 meant the release of the Vicar of Christ and his return to Rome. For Raoul Auclair, this motto, AQUILA RAPAX, is so in dazzling harmony with history that it alone suffices to validate the entire Prophecy of the Popes.
Pius VII (Barnaba Niccolò Maria Luigi Chiaramonti)
Born: 14 August 1742
Papacy began: 14 March 1800
Died: 20 August 1823
[In 2007, Benedict XVI authorized the opening of the process towards the beatification of Pius VII (who was then granted the title of «Servant of God»).]
In the list of the 10 longest pontificates in history, excluding Saint Peter, are Pius VI (24 years, 195 days) and Pius VII (23 years, 159 days), respectively ranked 4th and 6th. Let us make a brief comment on the motto which preceded these two major papal figures.
[Pope Clement XIV (1769-1774)]
Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 23-27, 31.
We are in the Age of Enlightenment or the Age of Reason, Freemasonry and other secret societies are fomenting political agitation. The French Revolution (1789) is soon-to-be-born. The bear is the symbol of the Revolution. The spirit of the Revolution will grow rapidly until its total manifestation in the Russian Revolution (1917). Russia is also symbolized by a bear.
Clement XIV (Giovanni Vincenzo Antonio Ganganelli)
Born: 31 October 1705
Papacy began: 19 May 1769
Died: 22 September 1774
[We can refer to the book of Raoul Auclair, La Prophétie des Papes (pp. 31-41), for the mottos 98 (CANIS ET COLUBER, «Dog and serpent»), 99 (VIR RELIGIOSUS, «Religious man») et 100 (DE BALNEIS ETRURIAE, «Of the baths of Etruria»), corresponding to the following popes: Leo XII (1823-1829), Pius VIII (1829-1830) and Gregory XVI (1831-1846).]
CRUX DE CRUCE
(«Cross from cross»)
[Pope Blessed Pius IX (1846-1878)]
Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 42-46.
With the 101st mottos, «the prestigious cycle» (p. 42) of the last 11 mottos opens. As Raoul Auclair says in his book La Prophétie des Papes, Pope Pius IX is a «very great pope» (p. 42), and «the saints, from [him], are going to follow one another on the see of Peter» (p. 45). The pontificate of Pius IX is the longest in history (31 years, 236 days), leaving aside the pontificate of Saint Peter, whose precise length is unknown.
The cross is the heraldic emblem of the House of Savoy. The county of Savoy was raised into a duchy in favor of Amadeus VIII (last count and first duke of Savoy). The latter will become antipope Felix V (1439-1449), elected by the schismatic Council of Basel. He corresponds to the motto AMATOR CRUCIS («Lover of the cross»). Victor Emmanuel II, last duke of Savoy, will proclaim the abolition of the Papal States in 1870, in the context of the Risorgimento or Italian unification.
The loss of the Papal States was a «cross» for the papacy coming from the Cross of Savoy: CRUX DE CRUCE («Cross from cross»). Raoul also discerns, in the pontificate of Pius IX, «the beginning of the great Way of the Cross of the Church of the Cross» (p. 45).
The pontificate of Pius IX was marked with three important epiphanies of Mary: La Salette (on 19 September 1846, 3 months and 3 days after the election of the pope), Lourdes (1858) and Pontmain (1871). From the beginning of this long Good Friday of the Church, the Virgin had announced in La Salette: «Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist»; and: «The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation.» The Church (the Members), as Christ (the Head), must go through death, with a view to its «Marian resurrection», thanks to the Flower of Flowers (FLOS FLORUM).
On 8 December 1854, Pope Pius IX promulgated the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.
Blessed Pius IX (Giovanni Maria Mastai Ferretti)

Papacy began: 16 June 1846
Died: 7 February 1878
Heroic virtues recognized: 6 July 1985 [by John-Paul II]
Beatified: 3 September 2000 (simultaneously with John XXIII) [by John-Paul II]
Liturgical feast: 7 February
LUMEN IN COELO
(«Light in the sky»)
[Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903)]
Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 47-49.
The coat of arms of Leo XIII shows a golden comet on a blue (azure) field («Light in the sky»). In accordance with this symbolism, here are some interesting assertions of Raoul Auclair, taken from his book La Prophétie des Papes (the translation is mine):
We know what admirable intelligence was Leo XIII. In the sky darkened by so many subversive doctrines, his famous encyclicals shine like a sun of truth. [p. 47]
He is the first pontiff who placed resolutely the Church, the City of God, in front of the City of men and who, without alienating nor compromising anything, tried to save what could still be saved. Rerum novarum: the Church goes down into the world, not to justify it, but to redress it. [p. 48]
The pontificate of Leo XIII carried the seeds of what was going to bloom and bear fruit during the second Vatican Council: the concern for ecumenism and, already, the contact with the separate churches; finally, the presence to the world, but not the alliance with the Ruler of this world. [pp. 48-49]
The encyclical Rerum novarum (15 May 1891) is considered as a foundational text of Catholic social teaching in modern era, an «immortal document» from a «great Pope». Among the numerous encyclicals (86 in all) of Leo XIII, we find four which denounce the freemasonry (starting with Humanum genus, on 20 April 1884), and eleven which promote the Rosary. The International Eucharistic Congresses and the great Marian pilgrimages began during the pontificate of Leo XIII, third longest in history (25 years, 150 days), after those of Blessed Pius IX and Saint John Paul II.
Leo XIII (Vincenzo Gioacchino Raffaele Luigi Pecci)
Born: 2 March 1810
Papacy began: 20 February 1878
Died: 20 July 1903
[Pope Saint Pius X (1903-1914)]
Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 49-52, 71, 93.
Pope Saint Pius X is one the patron saints of the Army of Mary. Pius X was a mystic soul, devoured by the burning fire of love. But another fire will mark the end of his pontificate: the ignition of the First World War. Pope Pius X is indicated by the Lady of all Peoples, during the 4th vision:
Now the Lady shows me three Popes. Above, to the left, Pius X; in the middle, our Pope [Pius XII]; to the right, a future Pope [John Paul II]. The Lady says:
«These three, that is an entire epoch.» «This Pope and the new one are the Fighters.»
The Lady gives me a view of a war. It will come much later. It is a new, strange war. It will cause terrible disaster. [4th vision, 29 August 1945)
Indeed, with Pius X, we are entering a new era or epoch. This «entire epoch» described by the Lady and characterized by three key popes coincides with the time of the Apocalypse, more precisely in its first phase [the pale blue section of the table]. The First World War, initiated under Pius X, will become under the next pontificate what Raoul Auclair calls the «Universal War-Revolution».
Joan of Arc, who died being burned alive, was beatified, on 18 April 1909, by Pius X, himself designated in the oracle as being a «burning fire» (IGNIS ARDENS).
Bust of Saint Joan of Arc of which I took pictures myself, at the Hôtel-Dieu of Montréal, in a small parlour of the Religious Hospitallers of Saint Joseph.

Died: 20 August 1914
Heroic virtues recognized: 12 February 1943 [by Pius XII]

[Pope Benedict XV (1914-1922)]
Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 52-57, 60, 93.
Pope Benedict XV ascended the throne of Peter with a very dark motto attached to him. With World War I, which was at the beginning a war in Europe, Christian nations on the continent have been literally depopulated and devastated. In 1917, the war took a universal turn with the entrance of America into the conflict. 1917 was also the year of the apparitions of Fatima, the year of the official return of the Jews in Palestine (with the help of the British government) and the year of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. That year, 1917, represents officially for Raoul Auclair the inception of the apocalyptic times prophesied by Saint John at the end of the Bible, but also by all the prophets of the Old Testament under the name of «Day of Yahweh». «Religion depopulated» will be a feature, not only of the First World War, but of all the «Universal War-Revolution» that will continue throughout the XXth century, with its millions of people killed by the different totalitarian ideologies. Christianity, and especially the Catholic Church, will be the first target of the revolutionaries. But the ultimate goal is to eliminate God and every authentic religion from the city. RELIGIO DEPOPULATA is the first of the eight last mottos which will cover the Apocalypse.
Let us recall that Benedict XV had the honor to canonize Joan of Arc (16 May 1920), nearly 489 years after her execution on the stake of Rouen (30 May 1431), although liturgically, the Maid of Orléans is still not celebrated as a martyr, but only as a virgin.

Born: 21 November 1854
Papacy began: 3 September 1914
Died: 22 January 1922
[Pope Pius XI (1922-1939)]
Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 57-59.
As we move forward through the time of the «Great Distress», the next motto, related to Pope Pius XI, clearly indicates the kind of character needed in order to survive that time. Yes, those people dressed in white, washing their robes and making them white in the blood of the Lamb, they have to be sustained and driven by a solid and intrepid faith. The time of the martyrs has come back. Russia is spreading its errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions against the Church. Stalin and Hitler dreadfully surpass any of the great tyrants of past history. The combination of the two will spark off the second phase of the «Universal War-Revolution» (World War II). Facing the rise of these two firebrands of iniquity, the pope of an «intrepid faith» will condemn the ideology of communism, declaring it as being «intrinsically perverse». Pius XI will also institute the liturgical feast of Christ the King. With absolute and intrepid faith, we cling to the Triple White: the Eucharist, Mary and the Pope.
On 2 March 1922, among the first acts of his pontificate, Pius XI published the apostolic letter Galliam, Ecclesiae filiam primogenitam (French version), for the proclamation of Our Lady of the Assumption as the principal Patroness of France, and of Saint Joan of Arc as secondary Patroness.
Pius XI (Ambrogio Damiano Achille Ratti)
Born: 31 mai 1857

Died: 10 February 1939
[Pope Pius XII (1939-1958)]
Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 22, 60-64, 71, 109.
The Lady of all Peoples described Pope Pius XII as being one of the «Fighters». The Second World War unleashed during the first years of his pontificate. Pius XII was a saint and a mystic, and also a prophet. He was a doctor, among the greatest, and Raoul Auclair sees in him «the doctor of this new world, of this better world» that will be the Terrestrial Kingdom. Raoul goes so far as to qualify him twice of «the most Marian of the popes». Pius XII was ordained bishop by Benedict XV on 13 May 1917, on the very day, indeed on the very hour, of the first apparition of Mary in Fatima. On 1st November 1950, he promulgated the dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven, body and soul. Such was the grandeur of Pius XII that everybody saw in him the «angelic pastor» of Saint Malachy.
The pontificate of Pie XII is ranked 13th in terms of duration (with 19 years and 221 days).
Let us bear in mind these celestial indications that Marie-Paule received in Life of Love, concerning Pope Pius XII (we are in 1958, the year of his death):
«THE HOLY FATHER, POPE PIUS XII, HAS HIS EYES TURNED TOWARDS CANADA. HE KNOWS THAT A WOMAN… (and that is all I catch). GREAT CALAMITIES WILL BEFALL CANADA…» [LL II, 18; TK-139, p. 6]
«THE HOLY FATHER, POPE PIUS XII, IS SUFFERING MENTALLY. IT IS TERRIBLE.» [LL II, 31]
«HIS HOLINESS, POPE PIUS XII, WILL NOT SEE THE WORST BATTLE AGAINST THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.» «EVERYTHING IS BEING PREPARED.» [LL II, 42-43; cf. LL IX, 101]

Papacy began: 2 March 1939
Died: 9 October 1958
Heroic virtues recognized: 19 December 2009 (simultaneously with John Paul II) [by Benedict XVI]
The next time, we shall be together with the supreme pontiffs who were among the direct architects of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965): they will be the «pastors» and the «navigators» during the Great Storm (PASTOR AND NAUTA).

Raoul Auclair points out that 666 years (6 × 111) have elapsed from the beginning of the Prophecy of the Popes, when Pius VII is abducted by Napoléon (1143-1809). Cf. La Prophétie des Papes, p. 102.

Encyclical letter Divini Redemptoris (19 March 1937), n. 58. Pius XI also condemned the nazism in Germany (encyclical letter Mit brenneder Sorge, 14 March 1937) and the fascism in Italy (encyclical letter Non abbiamo bisogno, 29 June 1931).
La Prophétie des Papes, p. 62.
La Prophétie des Papes, pp. 60-61. Of course, that was before the coming of Pope John Paul II, the other «Fighter» of the Lady. Marc Bosquart will use that same expression, «the most Marian of the popes», in connection with John Paul II: «La Dame de tous les Peuples, l’Année Sainte et les Mystères du Rosaire» (Le Royaume, n. 29, mars 1985, p. 5) [LR-029]. Elsewhere, Marie-Paule describes Pius XII as «very Marian»: «The Flower of Flowers» — «Flos Florum» (The Kingdom, n. 150, July-August 2011, p. 5) [TK-150]
As for John Paul II, the second «Fighter», cf. Raoul Auclair, La Dame de tous les Peuples — Ouverture à l’intelligence des messages, pp. 45-50, 82-86; Marc Bosquart, «Crucifiez-Le» (L’Étoile, n. 11, mai 1980, p. 6) [E-11]; «La Médaille Miraculeuse aujourd’hui» (L’Étoile, n. 19, mars 1981, p. 13) [E-19]; Mother Paul-Marie, God’s Ways are not our ways, p. 64; «One flock, one Shepherd» (The Kingdom, n. 123, September-October 1997, p. 5) [TK-123]; «The Flower of Flowers» — «Flos Florum» (The Kingdom, n. 150, July-August 2011, pp. 5-6) [TK-150].
Raoul Auclair underlines that Pius XII, that some called «the Pope of Fatima», had the vision of the «miracle of the sun» like at the Cova da Iria, in the sky of Rome, the day of the promulgation of the dogma (cf. La Prophétie des Papes, p. 61). In fact, Pius XII had the grace of such a spectacle on four occasions, in the year 1950, on October 30th and 31st, as well as on November 1st and 8th. Cf. Michel de la Sainte Trinité, Toute la vérité sur Fatima, Saint-Parres-lès-Vaudes, La Contre-Réforme catholique, tome III: Le troisième secret (1942-1960), first edition (in French) in 1985, pp. 188-193.
