The Next Pope Will Be From The East
By a soul
(Sunday, July 7, 2019, Month of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord, Jesus Christ)
I am writing this shorter commentary, because I have been wanting to write a more extensive commentary based on a a body of heavenly messages that I found a few months ago, but as I have been delayed, I feel it is not right for me to wait any longer, because this is an important prophecy about the papacy. Because of the many recent revelation of scandals and disgrace brought upon the Catholic Church, many people are wondering who the next pope will be after Pope Francis. And so, I would like to provide the answer that I have found based on the prophecies that I follow. So, let me share my thoughts.
Firstly, based on various prophecies, it seems clear that Pope Benedict XVI will flee the Vatican and die a martyr at some point. Whether it is before or after the Great Warning (Illumination of Conscience), I do not know. I think the reason that there are conflicting prophecies on this is to due to prayer. Honestly, I believe the amount and depth of loving prayer that God and the Blessed Mother receive from now until the Warning will determine and chart the course of future events. So, it is important that each of us pray as much as we can from the heart and for those most “needy” as Papa God recently said at Holy Love Ministries (http://www.holylove.org). Because Papa Is in control of everything on earth and only He knows best how to direct graces through Our Blessed Mother’s Holy Hands into the world. All Praise to God!
Meanwhile, I was given a prophecy back in March 2018 that I am still discerning, but literally broke my heart. I was told that not only would Pope Benedict XVI die a martyr, but also, there was a chance that Pope Francis would die a martyr, too. And it broke my heart, because today, there is so much criticism of Pope Francis. Yes, I know that he is doing some things that are not right and are damaging to our beloved Mother Church. Yes, I have heard the rumors about him possibly being a free-mason and such. And yes, I am well-aware that he might be, in fact, the false prophet of Revelation and as indicated in the Book of Truth to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy. But, knowing that at the Warning, this man might reverse course on everything that he is doing and instead die a Christian martyr, it did break my heart, because some people “write him off” as a lost soul already, etc. But, I do believe in the goodness of people and the power of prayer. And so, I do believe those things about Pope Francis that God would give him the genuine opportunity to change at the Warning. I believe that God will give that chance to everyone.
Now, regardless of whatever happens to Pope Benedict and Pope Francis, prophecy such as Locutions To The World, which I firmly believe in, asserts that there will be another Pope in the Catholic Church. In particular, that this priest-son of the Blessed Mother is hidden deeply and well-protected within Her Immaculate Heart and wholly unknown in the greater Christian Church. That this priest-son is very devoted to the Blessed Mother, particularly, under Her title as Our Lady of Fatima, and the Most Holy Rosary. And how, one day, the Blessed Mother will present Her choice for pope in a totally supernatural way to the world. And that, at the conclusion of his short reign, the Blessed Mother’s Pope will give up his life as a martyr in Jerusalem, which will bring about the unification of all of Christianity with the House of Israel, resulting in a New Springtime and Pentecost for the world, etc.
And so, because I firmly believe in Locutions To The World, I wrote several commentaries last year about the “Hidden Plan” of God to reconcile the entire world back to His Paternal Heart. I wrote about Islamic End Time prophecy and how it will affect Church affairs. I wrote about how the Warning and Miracle of Garabandal play a part in unifying the Church and avoiding the conditional Great Chastisement. And I wrote how the Resurrection of the Two Witnesses—of which, the Blessed Mother’s hidden priest-son for Pope, is one of them—will bring about reconciliation of the entire world back to God.

Well, I will be honest with you, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, with all the sodomy scandals exploding lately within the Catholic Church, I have wondered to myself, who could be this hidden priest-son of the Blessed Mother? I have never doubted the papal prophecies in Locutions To The World, but I have wondered to myself what priest is not tainted with the sin of these sodomy scandals at some level? I mean, if you look at the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, it seems like all the higher-ups—the Bishops—have this grave sin on their hands—if not explicitly, but at least implicitly, with great sins of omission. Really, I have been wondering…
Meanwhile, I do believe in the heavenly messages given by Our Lord to Greek Orthodox visionary, Vassula Ryden, of True Life in God (http://www.tlig.org). I have not read all her heavenly messages—there are too many of them—but I have read the prophecies about uniting the Western Church with the Eastern Church and how there will be a priest from the east—possibly Russia—who will save the Christian Church from collapse. Which, I believe are true prophecies, but at the same time, also made me wonder how could the Orthodox Church save the Catholic Church from ruination? They do not even believe in the papacy…?! It just did not make sense on a fundamental level to me, especially, as the Lord Is seeking unification of the entire Christian Church under the Pope—the branch cannot become suddenly the trunk of the main tree…?? And I do not believe that anyone in the Orthodox Church believes in Our Lady of Fatima? I am uncertain, but Marian apparitions tend to be a “Catholic thing.”
So, I have been pondering these questions for several years now. Never doubting, but pondering; and well, as I have witnessed many times in my life, the Lord does not answer my questions right away. The Lord often takes many years to answer a question or prayer that I have, but in the end, Papa God always does this to me. Papa will finally answer the question, and I will think to myself, Papa, why did you not answer me years ago? And I know that He will be smiling at me, because the thing that I have learned about Papa God Is this, He likes us to figure out things and learn as a way to grow up in our faith. Papa God really Is a Father to us all.
Papa God actually reminds me sometimes like my own earthly dad. Growing up, I would always go to my dad and ask him, dad, how do you spell a word? And my dad would always answer, go look it up in the dictionary. And I would tell my dad, dad, if I knew how to spell the word, I would use the dictionary. And on and on, it would go, until I would learn how to think for myself and use the dictionary. I love you, dad.
I love You, Papa God.
And so, my beloved brothers and sisters, I want you to know that God answered who the next Pope will be of the Catholic Church in a prophecy that was given in 2004. Chris Courtis is an American visionary who belongs to the Ukrainian Catholic Orthodox Church and has a Catholic priest as a spiritual director (http://www.movingheartfoundation.com). He received heavenly messages from 2000-2010, but no longer receives messages for the public. I have only read the messages from the Blessed Mother, but I do believe that his heavenly messages are genuine and I feel confident in recommending them to those who follow this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove. Now, here is the prophecy about the next Pope:
September 24, 2004
The Blessed Virgin Mary
“…I urge for the unification of all churches. And to reconcile with God, you must return to Jesus’ Vicar on earth. This is the only way for the Church to be reconciled and have peace. If it does not, and humanity persists to ignore my messages and my plea, the Holy Roman Church will fall, but in its stead, a new Church will be raised, that of the Eastern Catholic denomination. This Church will be the one who will hold the true teachings of the Catholic Church for awhile. Then suddenly when it looks like St. Peter shall fall to the ground, the Holy Catholic Church shall be revitalized and a new springtime shall be brought to every nation. The gospel shall be preached and everyone will be converted…”
And so, with this prophecy, the Blessed Mother has revealed that the next Pope of the Catholic Church will be from one of the 23 Eastern Catholic denominations that are still in full communion with Rome. Most Catholics do not realize this, because 98% of the Catholic Church is of the Latin (“Roman”) Catholic Rite, but there exist 23 Eastern Catholic denominations that recognize the Catholic Pope as the spiritual head of the Christian Church. Most of these Eastern Catholic denominations came about when the Orthodox Church split from the Catholic Church one thousand years ago. Some clerics and congregations stayed with Rome and so, they are in full communion with the entire Catholic Church, but retain the Eastern liturgies and traditions, etc.
Article: The Other Catholics: A Short Guide to the Eastern Catholic Churches https://www.catholiceducation.org/en/culture/catholic-contributions/the-other-catholics-a-short-guide-to-the-eastern-catholic-churches.html
And so, when I came across this prophecy of the Blessed Mother, I had one of those “eureka” moments. Finally, the prophecies of Locutions To The World and those to Vassula Ryden made sense to me. Now, it makes sense to me how very hidden this priest-son is of the Blessed Mother and how he is from the East, but still loves Our Lady of Fatima and even prays the Most Holy Rosary. If you contemplate it, it is truly wonderful how all the papal prophecies make sense now and how the East will save the West from complete collapse because they have retained their rich liturgies and conservative traditions of the Catholic-Orthodox faith. And also, how what I wrote last year about the hidden plan of God is supported by this prophecy—how when “St. Peter shall fall to the ground”–the Pope is martyred in Jerusalem according to Locutions To The World—how his resurrection as one of the Two Witnesses will result in a “New Springtime” for the rest of the world.
Of course, the thought that the next Pope is one of the Two Witnesses of Revelation is my personal belief, but it just makes sense based on the fact that we are in the End Times and everything that is manifesting now. Why else would the martyrdom of the Pope in Jerusalem have the effect of otherwise reconciling the rest of the world back to God?
Meanwhile, I smile because I love how God works. Patience truly is a virtue…
Alright, that is it for this shorter commentary. Much food for thought, huh?
I love you all.
ONE FINAL NOTE: In the heavenly message that I include below that was given to Chris Courtis, the Blessed Mother also promises that before all Her Apparitions cease in the world, She will appear in such a way that all people of the world will be able to see Her. I actually speculated in an earlier commentary about this fact, that the Blessed Mother would make appearances at Her shrines for several hours at a time, like Our Lady of Zeitoun and Our Lady of Knock. This is supported by prophecy in the Book of Truth given to Maria Divine Mercy. However, to realize this part of Her Plan, the Blessed Mother needs prayers from the faithful. So, remember to pray always for Our Blessed Mother’s intentions, as She always has the best in mind for us in Her Immaculate Heart. God bless!

Messages to Vassula Ryden
THE EAST AND THE WEST WILL BE ONE KINGDOM
October 24, 1994
Vassula of My Sacred Heart; 1 would it please were I to say: Vassula of the Pantocrator? 2 you are dedicated under My Name; I am One3 and the Same, but men have parcelled Me out;
he who sows division reaps a harvest of destruction; he who sows prejudice reaps a harvest of folly; have you not heard, that the fool folds his arms and eats his own flesh away? all the flesh that was covering them is gone and their breath too, nothing remains out of them but dry bones; My Names are Holy, 4 but men have patronised Me and have expelled Me from My Own House, My Own City and now from My Own Sanctuary: 5 they are oppressing Me and weighing heavily on Me; overweening with pride, they are content to live in a desert; but I mean in these coming days to display the Holiness of My Great Name which is, because of your division, profaned;
I tell you, daughter, do you see how your people are living undisturbed and in an appalling lethargy when it comes to work for unity? 6 I will allow no more of this; I am going to reach out My Hand even to the remotest parts of your nation and overthrow these traders7 that hinder My people to unite; I have raised you to be a sign of unity, a sign of My Mercy, a sign of My Power, but the passions of their ostentatious pride has turned them blind;
today I can say: “let their bones burn” and take revenge; I can widow your nation, but in My Mercy and for the sake of My Love I will raise from the East at least one, who will say to his brother: 8 “come and tread on my ground; come and eat from my table, come and drink with me; my vats are overflowing with new wine; let us pasture our lambs together and make an Eden of our pastures; our God! see what our hands have made out of Your Sanctuary!”
My House in the West is being plundered; I had asked them to assemble under Peter, 9 but they have not understood and are doing the contrary; many from within that House are saying: “why is it that we have to have a guide, 10 especially this guide?” I had warned you that cardinals will turn against cardinals, bishops against bishops and priests against priests; I selected Peter to feed and guard My lambs but the spirit of rebellion, thriving now, has reached its peak of rebellion; this was the great Tribulation I was warning you of; 11
My House in the West is being plundered, but, the wind from the East will rise and together with My Breath will strip the plunderer; many members of your nation object to My Call of Unity and have accustomed their steps to walk their own way; they call themselves rich, but then, where are their riches? ….
“how is it you have become a degenerate vine? can you say that you have not sinned? is there a single place where you have not sinned? you, the friend of My Saints! the child of My Mother! why, why have you become so obstinate? what are your endless ceremonies to Me when you give Me praise by lip-service? yes, you have kept My Tradition and this is why the sword will not come to you, yet you put aside My Two Greatest Commandments and do not follow them; why do you separate Tradition from Commandment? 12 should you cover yourself with myrrh and incense I should still detect the stain of your guilt; open your mouth now and let Me feed you so that you devour life; do not say: ‘we will go our own way’; return to Me and acknowledge your guilt!”
and you, daughter, shout My Message aloud and prophesy, say: I know all about My House in the West bank, near the River of Life and I know too who in this House remained loyal to Me; daughter, what do you see outside this House?
I see a lion prowling outside that House, and eager to enter Your House from a side window.
yes; the lion left its lair; daughter, a destructive spirit is roaming; angel follows close on angel, to warn you all and tell you that My City in the West bank will be stormed by the ravager and with great violence that is, to oppose and contradict My Law, My Tradition and My Divinity; the whole country shall become a horror;
your holy ones, My messengers and My prophets will be hindered to go on with their work …. and over you will spread a heavy darkness while the Enemy, who is a scholar, will be banishing My Perpetual Sacrifice, thinking his acts go by unnoticed with his secret sins; My Hand will descend upon him suddenly, destroying him altogether; that Night had been foretold in the Scriptures; but he, together with others, have put their oath in the Beast’s mouth joyfully, honouring only the Beast for having given them its power; woe to the worshippers of the Beast! they will be moaning and bemoaning;
now, daughter, what do you see on the other side of the bank, My House of the East?
I do not see any City, and the land is sandy and flat as in a desert; but I also see a green shoot springing from this desert.
listen and write: glory will shine from the Eastern bank; that is why I say to the House of the West: turn your eyes towards the East; do not weep bitterly over the Apostasy and the destruction of your House; do not panic, for tomorrow you will eat and drink together with My shoot from the Eastern bank; My Spirit will bring you together; have you not heard that the East and West will be one kingdom? have you not heard that I shall settle for one date?13
I am going to reach out My Hand and carve on a stick the words: West bank, House of Peter and all those who are loyal to him; then, on another stick I will carve: East bank, House of Paul, together with all those who are loyal to him; and when the members of the two Houses will say: “Lord, tell us what you mean now”, I will say to them: “I will take the stick on which I carved Paul’s name together with all those who are loyal to him and put the stick of Peter and his loyal ones, as one; I shall make one stick out of the two and I shall hold them as one; I shall bind them together with My New Name; this will be the bridge between the West and the East; My Holy Name will bind the bridge, so that you will exchange your possessions across this bridge; they will no longer practise alone, but together and I shall reign over them all;
– what I have planned shall happen, and should men say to you, daughter, that these signs are not from Me, tell them: “do not fear, have you not heard that He is the Sanctuary and the Stumbling Stone as well? the Rock that can bring down the two Houses but raise them up again as one single House?” this is what you will tell them, daughter;
I, God, am with you; I shall inundate with My Spirit many more hearts;
come, I love you; have My Peace;
1 I was thinking that by calling me in this way, the Orthodox will continue to turn against me because the terminology is Roman Catholic.
2 Greek Orthodox terminology.
3 He is the Same Christ.
4 Christ’s different Names, e.g. Pantocrator, Divine Heart, Ichthus, Alpha and Omega, Immanuel etc.
5 Not only Christ is “thrown out” from His Own House because of a question of terminology, but in the West some have started to abolish the Perpetual Sacrifice.
6 The Greek Orthodox ‘skipped’ many of the ecumenical meetings.
7 ‘Traders’ signify in this context, those who look after their interests and not Christ’s.
8 The Western Brother.
9 Message of June 3, 1988.
10 Reference from Message of May 16, 1988.
11 Reference from Message of May 16, 1988.
12 It means: “Pay attention to those Two Commandments as much as you pay attention to the Tradition”.
13 I understood that Christ was referring to all of His Messages of unity, calling us all to unify the dates of Easter. This alone seems to ‘settle’ Him and satisfy His thirst for unity. Christ promised us that if we unify the dates of Easter, He will do the rest.
YOUR MOTHER OF LIGHT
TO THE WORLD
September 24, 2004
through Chris Courtis,
a visionary in Maryland, U.S.A.
(Our Lady is here! She’s all surrounded by beautiful light and Her skin even looks like its bathed in light. I can see her eyes. She’s so beautiful! She reminds me a little bit of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. I can see the white veil. I can see her hair. It’s flowing. I think it’s because of the fan. [overhead fan in the room] I can see a blue mantle and I can see a white dress. Her hands are even out like the Miraculous Medal. Her eyes! She’s bathed all in light. She says,
“Praised be Jesus!”
“Will you do me the honor of praying with me for my children and for the unification of the Church?”
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. [Chris prays the prayer three times.]
She was me to tell you that when I am praying, making the Sign of the Cross, she is doing the same thing. She says,
My child, I wish everyone to know before I give my message that the reason why I am here is to deliver an urgent message for all mankind.
In June, I delivered an urgent message, and in July also predicting that if humanity does not return back to God and make a choice which path it will take, that they will be chastised where they stand, and I did mention the hurricanes, natural disasters, floods, epidemics and suffering of every kind, and great earthquakes. As you know, it is not a coincidence that there have been now three major hurricanes with two already on their way. This is a sign for all God’s people that God is urging you to make a decision and to return to Him. An Era of Peace can exist and will exist if ALL humanity returns to God. This is a sign that He is calling you to prayer, penance and reconciliation, now while there is still time. My predictions have come to pass and are coming to pass.
Please, dear children, wake up, read and understand that the times you are living in is a special grace afforded to you by God the Father for your conversion, and for a chance to be reconciled with God, and for humanity to obtain peace NOW. I wish this to be my message and I wish it to go along with the message that I shall deliver today regarding my apparitions in Zeitoun. I bless the Americas and the world, but I urge you to choose wisely and choose soon.
(I see the world and Our Lady is beside it. She’s holding out her hand. She’s making the Sign of the Cross over the world to bless it, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. She says now she will give her message.)
My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
My dear children, today I invite and I call you to look back at my apparitions in Zeitoun, Cairo, Egypt. In this apparition I wish to draw your attention to so many significant points, but my main message that I wish to convey, as I did then and now, is the message of unity. All nations, all people, whether they believe in God or not should amend their ways and pray, pray, pray, pray!
All humanity must pray to God and be reconciled with my Son. This is why I allowed myself to be seen by Muslims, Jews, Christians of every denomination – Baptist, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Protestants, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox, all Orthodox Christians, all Eastern Catholic people, all fallen away Catholics, and all Catholics were able to see me because I wished them to see me and my Son desired that my request be granted. I appeared so that everyone could see and believe, so that in one moment in time, those who saw me may think to themselves, “Is this truly the Mother of God, and if this is truly the Mother of God, then surely Jesus must be real. And if Jesus is real, then so is God the Father.”
Little children, God loves you as He did then and as He does now, and He wishes that there be unity among all people. It is true that all religions are not the same, but all people are called to love and respect themselves and each other no matter which religion, denomination or creed they may be. Our Lord loves each and every one of you the same. However, He does call you to daily conversion, day after day. This is the message that I wish to convey, that there be unity among all people and that there be conversion. Respect each other’s religion, denomination, and creed. Please, dear children, there must be general love and respect for each other. Otherwise you will not bring peace. Hate breeds hate! Sin breeds sin! You must learn to love unconditionally the way God loves you! He loves and respects each individual and gives freedom of free will. I love you and call you to respect each other and love each other.
For those who are not Christian, such as Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, I wish to convey this message to all my children: God loves you and He wishes your conversion, but you must pray and be at peace in order to be converted and to understand His ways better. Humble yourselves before God, and He will make you righteous and holy.
To those of Christian denominations and to Eastern Catholics, Orthodox, and Catholics, I say, Do not judge your Christian brothers and sisters. Love them. Pray for them, and pray that one day God’s truth may be revealed to them, that the only one, true, Apostolic Church exists under Peter and continues down through his successors. God loves each and every one of you and He wishes that there be unification among the Coptic Orthodox Church, Greek Orthodox Church, Ukrainian Eastern Catholic Churches and all Catholics Churches, that they be united as one.
This is my plea and my purpose: unite, convert and pray that one Church, under the pope may be realized. There is so much beauty in each church. I love and respect the Catholic Church and all Orthodox churches. However, I do call for humility within the Greek Orthodox churches, Coptic Orthodox churches, Russian Orthodox churches and all Eastern Orthodox churches to be united with love and respect to Pope John Paul II. Convert and be reconciled. It is you, dear children, who broke away from the Catholic Church, not the other way around. This mystery is signified by my apparitions in so many Catholic locations and even those in Orthodox locations.
Please be converted! Humble yourselves before God and pray, pray, pray! I urge for the unification of all churches. And to reconcile with God, you must return to Jesus’ Vicar on earth. This is the only way for the Church to be reconciled and have peace. If it does not, and humanity persists to ignore my messages and my plea, the Holy Roman Church will fall, but in its stead, a new Church will be raised, that of the Eastern Catholic denomination. This Church will be the one who will hold the true teachings of the Catholic Church for awhile. Then suddenly when it looks like St. Peter shall fall to the ground, the Holy Catholic Church shall be revitalized and a new springtime shall be brought to every nation. The gospel shall be preached and everyone will be converted.
Although this time is future, this time is fast approaching. The time has not yet come, for the Church must face many trials before the fall happens. It is already tilted. You shall see it continue until it is almost hits the ground, and then a new time of peace shall emerge. All people will love Christ and be united as brethren within the Holy Catholic Church, and the Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church shall be as one. As it was in Constantinople, it shall be again. This is my call for every Christian and Catholic, to be united in Christ and pray, pray, pray!
I wish to also tell you that before my apparitions end completely, I shall be seen by every denomination and religion throughout this world. I will be seen among all people, not for just a moment, but everyone will have a chance to see me. As I appeared in Zeitoun, I shall appear again so everyone may see me. Pray and help my plans to be realized, not just here, but throughout the world.
I love you, dear children, and I bless you, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Now as I make the Sign of the Cross again, I shall depart. I shall depart but I shall always be with you whenever you pray. Plus I take your petitions within my Most Immaculate Heart and will present them this evening to the heart of the little Jesus who is always with me. I bless you again, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. Thank you, my dear little children for having responded to my call and for letting me stay this long among you. Go, my dear little angels. You are all my angels! Go in the great peace of God Most High. Ad Deum.
(Our Lord appeared as the Child Jesus with dark blond, curly hair, big chubby face, brown eyes and He was dressed in a pink robe with His arms out and all light. He came for joy because he wants to add to the Litany of The Blessed Virgin Mary. After “Mother of Our Savior”, He wants to put “Mother of Mercy” and after “Singular vessel of Devotion and before “Mystical Rose”, He wants us to add “Flower of the Field”, and then “Lily of the Valley,” and at the end of the Litany, after “Queen of All Saints” and before “Queen conceived without original sin,” He wants us to add “Queen of Homes.” Then He said Our Lady shall appear next month on the 24th of October under the title of Our Lady of Kibeho, Rwanda. And then He blessed us all.)
