Canonization means that the soul has been released from the "Church Suffering" in "Purgatory" and has joined the "Church Triumphant" in heaven! It is beyond belief but Pope Pius XII is still suffering in "Purgatory!"

Zoé Labouré was born in the Burgundy region of France, on May 2, 1806. Her name was changed to Catherine when she became a nun in 1830. Zoé's parents, Pierre and Louise, never bothered to teach her to read or write so she was illiterate when she entered the convent in Paris. Ignorance is truly the mother of devotion.

24-year-old Zoé entered the novitiate or seminary at 140 rue du Bac in April 1830. If it wasn't for the horrible Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre, no nunneries would exist in France. Saint Paul never told young women to enter a convent. He admonished them to get married and have children:

So I counsel younger women to marry, to have children, to manage their homes and to give the enemy no opportunity for slander. For some have already turned aside after Satan ( I Timothy 5:14-15, Greek Orthodox Version).

Her illiteracy was no problem as no entrance examination was required. The main requirements for a novice nun were blind obedience to the Mother Superior, and a strict conformity to the convent rules.

While the other novices enjoyed the fine French cuisine, Catherine shamed them by fasting on Fridays and Saturdays. That was the secret that enabled the "Queen of Heaven" (Jeremiah 44:17) to appear to her twice.

apparitions took place.

As a novice or nun-in-training, Catherine was not allowed to wear the outlandish headgear of the Sisters of Charity.

She only spent 9 months at the seminary, and when she "graduated" as a Sister of Charity she was transferred to a hospice at Enghien—a suburb of Paris.

The only entry of her stay at the seminary stated that the austere novice was "gay." It's no fun to be a nun!

Absolutely nothing was mentioned of her stay during the 9-month novitiate except a brief entry stating that she was gay:

As it is, we can reconstruct nothing of those days, for we have no whisper of evidence to go on. Let it not be stated flatly, however, that Catherine would have any part in such doings. In the terse, two-sentence biography written in the seminary record book, her directress states that during her noviceship Catherine was, surprisingly enough, "gay." It is an adjective no one would have applied to her in her former life, except possibly in her early childhood. It is an adjective no one would apply to her again. (Dirvin, Saint Catherine Labouré of the Miraculous Medal, p. 108).

Back then the word GAY meant cheerful and happy, as in "Gay Paree." LESBIAN was the only word for the female counterpart of a HOMOSEXUAL.

Catherine had her first vision on July 19, called the "Virgin of the Chair," because the "Queen of Heaven" was sitting in a chair. That vision was preparatory to the "Miraculous Medal" vision that took place at the end of November of the same year.

Catherine Labouré

Catherine's first apparition was on July 19, 1830.

Her second apparition was on November 27 when the "Virgin of the Globe" appeared to her.

That "Immaculate Virgin" was standing on a globe and holding a globe surmounted by a cross!

Catherine was ordered to make a medal of the vision, which became known worldwide as the "Miraculous Medal."


The apparition was holding a globe
and standing on a globe!

Here is an account of that apparition by her official biographer, Joseph I. Dirvin, a priest and former professor at St. John's University in Brooklyn, New York:

The Virgin held in her hand a golden ball which she seemed to offer to God, for her eyes were raised heavenward. Suddenly, her hands were resplendent with rings set with precious stones that glittered and flashed in a brilliant cascade of light. So bright was the flood of glory cast upon the globe below that Catherine could no longer see Our Lady's feet.
Mary lowered her eyes and looked full at Sister Labouré. Her lips did not move but Catherine heard a voice.
"The ball which you see represents the whole world and France in particular."
Those words stirred the heart of the Sister with fresh transports of joy, and the dazzling rays seemed to her to increase to blinding brilliance (Dirvin, Saint Catherine Labouré of the Miraculous Medal, p. 93).

The "Queen of Heaven" instructed Catherine to make a medal of the vision she had seen:

At that moment, Catherine was so lost in delight that she scarcely knew where she was, whether she lived or died. The golden ball vanished from Mary's hands, her arms swept wide in a gesture of motherly compassion, while from her jewelled fingers the rays of light streamed from the white globe at her feet. An oval frame formed around the Blessed Virgin, and written within in letters of gold Catherine could read the words: O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."
The voice spoke again: "Have a medal struck with this model. All who wear it will receive great graces, They should wear it around the neck. Graces will abound to persons who wear it with confidence." (Dirvin, Saint Catherine Labouré of the Miraculous Medal, p. 94).

Immediately after seeing the vision, Catherine told her confessor—a Vincentian priest named Jean Marie Aladel. Aladel was the confessor for all the novices and nuns so there were no secrets hid from him.

Like monks, nuns have to take perpetual vows of poverty, CHASTITY, and obedience, which means no sex . . . ever....The reality is shockingly different however as escaped nun Maria Monk discovered!

Fr. Jean Marie Aladel

When Catherine told her confessor about the vision he was horrified. She had just broken her vow of CHASTITY!

As her confessor, she had to confess her sins to him, and she confessed that she loved a fellow seminarian.

In other words, Catherine was a LESBIAN!!

The priest told her to forget about the visions because the "Holy Mother of God" would never appear to a lesbian.


Archbishop de Quélen

Catherine persisted however, and Jean Marie Aladel consulted his boss, the archbishop of Paris. The archbishop reminded Fr. Aladel that according to the Council of Trent he had the power to forgive the sins of Catherine, and that was why the "Immaculate Virgin" appeared to her.

The archbishop gave the go ahead for the minting of the medal, but insisted that strict secrecy be observed about her identity. Whether he had doubts or not was not revealed because he was sent to "Purgatory" in 1839.

Pope Gregory XVI (1791–1846).
Pope from 1831 to 1846.

Archbishop de Quelen was sent to "Purgatory" in 1839, and he was succeeded by a more compliant archbishop named Denis-Auguste Affre.

Pope Gregory XVI embraced the apparition enthusiastically and he gave his imprimatur to the minting of the "Miraculous Medal."

After getting the green light from Pope Gregory XVI, a goldsmith named Adrien Vachette (1753–1839) began minting the medal by the millions.


Archbishop Affre

Adrien Vachette was too old to enjoy the financial windfall, but he believed that minting and selling the "Miraculous Medal" would shorten his time in "Purgatory."

The obverse of the
"Miraculous Medal."


One side showed the "Immaculate Virgin" standing on a globe, while the other side showed the Sacred Heart of Jesus, crowned with thorns, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary pierced with a sword.

The words that appeared on the medal in French said: "Ô Marie, conçue sans péché, priez pour nous qui avons recours à vous." Translated into English that means: "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."

The "Immaculate Virgin" holding the globe was omitted from the medal.


The reverse of the
"Miraculous Medal."

The original apparition had the "Immaculate Virgin" holding a globe surmounted by a cross, but that globe was considered too overtly Catholic, and it did not appear on the "Miraculous Medal."

By 1836, goldsmith Adrien Vachette had sold over 2,000,000 medals, with the Sisters of Charity and the Vatican receiving a large share of the profits.

As devotion to the "Miraculous Medal" spread like wildfire throughout Europe and the world, images of the world in the shape of a GLOBE proliferated. Christians who upheld the Biblical cosmology didn't realize that they were facing a GLOBAL Inquisition led the Militia of Jesus.

The gay global nun was anonymous until her exodus to "Purgatory" in 1876

After her brief stay at 140 rue du Bac had ended, Catherine was sent to a hospice at Enghien—a suburb of Paris. That hospice took care of old people and French soldiers wounded in battle.

spent the remainder of her long life.

As millions of "Miraculous Medals" were distributed worldwide, Catherine spent the next 46 years of her life in obscurity at the Enghien-Reuilly Hospice.

She used her medals to evangelize the old people by hiding them under their mattresses or in their pillows!

Just before she went to "Purgatory" she revealed her identity, and asked that a statue of the "Virgin of the Globe" be erected at 140 rue du Bac.

Catherine was buried in a

vault under this chapel.

There was great rejoicing at the Enghien-Reuilly convent when Catherine finally departed to "Purgatory:"

Her death brought no sadness to the house. Death is never sad in religious houses, but the death of Sister Catherine seemed to leave with her Sisters a spirit of positive joy. As they filled the refectory for supper, Sister Dufes rose to speak to them: "Now that Sister Catherine is dead" she began, "there is no more cause for silence." As she went on to read to them Catherine's own account of her visions. The Sisters listened with wonder and growing excitement, for, in spite of the guesses and suspicions of years, no one had known for sure that Sister Catherine was the Sister of the Medal. (Dirvin, Saint Catherine Labouré of the Miraculous Medal, pp. 224-225).

When she finally died on December 31, 1876, special permission was obtained from the French government to inter her in a vault under the convent chapel. That chapel still exists today and is called Chappelle des Filles de la Charité.

The first "Miraculous Medal" convert was an Edomite named Alphonse Ratisbonne!!

From the time the medal was first minted, miracles multiplied. Nuns encouraged people to wear them around their necks to ward off evil and guarantee a happy death. Reports began to pour in from various parts of the world of miraculous healing brought about by the "Miraculous Medal."

In 1842, the spectacular conversion of a "Jew" was obtained by wearing the medal while on a visit to Roma.

lphonse Ratisbonne

In order to promote the worship of the "Miraculous Medal," miracles were a vital necessity.

The first big miracle was the conversion of an Edomite named Alphonse Ratisbonne in 1842.

Alphonse was already a Jesuit disguised as a "Jew," but his "conversion" caused a sensation throughout Europe.

Bust of Marie Alphonse Ratisbonne, at Ratisbonne Monastery, old Jerusalem.

In 1842, a 28-year-old French "Jew" named Alphonse Ratisbonne was visiting Roma when he was persuaded by a friend to wear the medal:

The year 1842 had scarcely begun when an event occurred which brought the Miraculous Medal to the notice of the world outside the Church and resulted in the official recognition of the Medal by Rome itself. The event was the Conversion of Alphonse Tobie Ratisbonne. Ratisbonne was a citizen of the world in every respect. Scion of an old and wealthy Jewish family of Strasbourg, he was a lawyer by education and banker by trade. At twenty-eight he was in the prime of life, good-looking, good-humored, a man of charm and countless friends. (Dirvin, Saint Catherine Labouré of the Miraculous Medal, p. 166).

After his "conversion," Ratisbonne became a Jesuit priest and moved to old Jerusalem. He worked closely with the British Empire Jews in colonizing Palestine with Edomites.

Only 3 other men knew the identity of the gay global nun!!

The implication that the "Immaculate Virgin" had appeared to a lesbian nun would have collapsed the pillars of the Vatican. Therefore, steps were taken to guard her identity zealously. Only 3 other men besides Jean Marie Aladel and the archbishop of Paris knew the identiy of anonymous!

Jan Roothaan, S.J. (17851853).
Jesuit general from '29 to '53.

As Pope Gregory's boss, Jesuit general Jan Roothaan would have to give the OK for the minting of the medal, and he knew why strict secrecy had to be observed.

Militia of Jesus Jan Roothaan was succeeded by Peter Beckx, and he continued to keep the identity of the gay global nun top secret.

The only real miracle was keeping her identity top secret for so long.


Peter Beckx, S.J. (
Jesuit general from '53 to '87.

As the "Miraculous Medals" began to proliferate around the world, momentum began to build for the promulgation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception. That dogma was formally defined by Pope Pius IX in 1854.

Pope Pius IX (1792–1878).
Pope from 1846 to 1878.

Due to the worldwide distribution of the medals, Pope Pius IX defined the "Immaculate Deception" dogma in 1854.

That dogma teaches that Mary/Maria/Marie was born without original sin!


A painting portraying the
"Immaculate Deception" dogma.

Here is that dogma as infallibly defined by Pope Pius IX:

We declare, pronounce and define that the doctrine which holds that the Blessed Virgin Mary, at the first instant of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace of the Omnipotent God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of mankind, was preserved immaculate from all stain of original sin, has been revealed by God, and therefore should firmly and constantly be believed by all the faithful. (Ineffabilis Deus, December 8, 1854).

At that time, the Vatican considered lesbianism and homosexuality sins that would detain Catholics in "Purgatory" for a long time . . . unless confessed to a priest.

Pope Pius XII canonized the gay global nun in 1947

By 1931, the geopolitical climate was once again looking very bleak for the Vatican. The French Republic had survived the slaughter of World War I, and Russia was still a great world power. It seemed that only a "miracle" could save the Papacy.

Pope Pius XI then made the momentous decision to give greater prominence to the "Miraculous Medal" by canonizing Catherine Labouré. Beatification is the first step in that process.

Pope Pius XI beatified deceased gay nun Catherine at a magnificent ceremony held in St. Peter's on May 28, 1933.

A look-alike was disinterred from the vault under the chapel and that body is now resting under the "Virgin of the Globe" statue.

A Catherine Labouré look-alike

now rests at 140 rue du Bac.

Here is an account of that event by Joseph I. Dirvin:

The church now ordered the exhumation of the body of the saint. It had lain, sealed in the vault beneath the chapel at Reuilly, for fifty-seven years. The coffin was carried to the rue du Bac, and there opened in the presence of Cardinal Verdier, Archbishop of Paris, and a number of civil officials and doctors. As the lid was lifted, a gasp of astonishment went through the group. Catherine lay there, as fresh and serene as the day she was buried. Her skin had not darkened in the least; the eyes which had looked on Our Lady were as intensely blue as ever, andmost remarkable of allher arms and legs were as supple as if she were merely asleep. (Dirvin, Saint Catherine Labouré of the Miraculous Medal, pp. 228-229).

After 57 years, all that was left of Catherine was a pile of bones....When the beatification was approved, a look-alike was quickly buried in the convent chapel. That corpse was disinterred and is now honored as the "Miraculous Medal" visionary. That was how the "miracle" of her bodily preservation came to pass.

With the defeat of his Axis powers in World War II, Pope Pius XII desperately needed the help of the "Miraculous Medal." That was why her release from "Purgatory" was expedited or fast-tracked.

As a preliminary to proclaiming the Fourth Marian dogma, Pope Pius XII canonized Catherine at an imposing ceremony at the Vatican on July 27, 1947.

Winston Churchill, Pope Pius XII, and Cardinal Spellman knew that WWIII with Russia must take place before that mighty nation obtained the Bomb1



The canonization of Catherine by
Pope Pius XII on July 27, 1947.

The years immediately after the promulgation of the bodily Assumption of the "Immaculate Virgin" into heaven were very, very dangerous times for the world. Pope Pius XII was very good friends with Cardinal Spellman, the "American Pope." Spellman was "Military Vicar" of the U.S. armed forces, and twice during the 1950's the world stood on the brink of Armageddon.

Highwayman Robert Moses featured a globe at the 1964-65 World's Fair!!

The 1964-65 World's Fair was held in a suburb of Babylon on the Hudson . . . and it featured a giant GLOBE called a UNISPHERE.

The 1964 World's Fair featured
a giant unisphere.

The 1965-65 World's Fair was held in Queens, New York.

It was the brainchild of Robert Moses, and it was financed by the Port Authority of London, New York, and New Jersey.

Millions of people visited the Fair, and the tilted globe was supposed to represent the earth as a rotating football circling the sun once a year!

Each actor-astronot should have received an Academy Award.

The top secret Fifth Papal Marian dogma has been postponed indefinitely!!

It is beyond belief but the Dominicans, Franciscans, and Jesuits want to place the capstone on their pyramid of errors by promulgating a FIFTH and final papal dogma. That dogma will define "Spear-shaker" Athena or Minerva as the Co-Redeemer of the human race with Joshua the Messiah. Their "Spear-shaker" is disguised as the humble Virgin Miriam who gave birth to the Messiah....Theologically, this is tantamount to adding a FOURTH person to the Holy Trinity!

The bloody Korean conflict began on June 15, 1950, and it was supposed to lead to WWIII with Russia.

Cardinal Spellman, the "American Pope," was a close friend of Pope Pius XII, and he was also "Military Vicar" of the U.S. Armed Forces.

The U.S. was the only country with nuclear weapons, and the "Vicar" of the Prince of Peace was "praying" that WWIII would start with Russia.



More than a million "pilgrims" visited
Roma for the proclamation!

That dogma was also a direct challenge to Orthodox Christians because they only recognize the first 7 ecumenical councils.

A Viking/Nazi named Trygve LIE was secretary-general of the UN at that time. He immediately condemned the North as the aggressor, even though he refused to condemn the Falangist regime of Generalissimo Franco in Spain.

The Russians absented themselves from the UN at time of the voting on Korea, so they could not be implicated in the invasion of South Korea.

Even though the Fifth Papal Marian dogma was postponed indefinitely, that does not mean that Armageddon is also cancelled. The Prophet Daniel predicated that Antichrist would plant his tabernacle from sea to shining sea before the end of time:

And he (Antichrist) shall plant the tabernacle of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end and none shall help him (Daniel 11:45).

The Exodus from Egyptian bondage is a type of Armageddon and the end of the world. When Pharaoh's chariots was pursing the children of Israel in the Red Sea, JEHOVAH sent his mechanic-angel and he took off the wheels of their chariots to slow them down:

Now it came to pass, in the morning watch, that JEHOVAH  looked down upon the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and cloud, and he troubled the army of the Egyptians. And he took off their chariot wheels, so that they drove them with difficulty; and the Egyptians said, “Let us flee from the face of Israel, for JEHOVAH fights for them against the Egyptians (Exodus 14:24).

In these last days, JEHOVAH expects all true Christians to "do their duty" and become "Mechanics for Christ."
