Francis & his Top US Collaborator “Evil… Cupich” vs. Pope Leo XIII’s Exorcism “St. Michael Prayer… at the End of Mass” to Fight Satan?

Pope Leo XIII and the Prayer to St. Michael: Kevin J. Symonds, Justin  Eldracher, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Kent Garrett and Andy Schmalen:  9780984013968: Books

Yesterday, we found out that Francis’s top US collaborator Cardinal Blase [“More evil from”] Cupichbanned the “St. Michael Prayer… at the end of Mass”:𝑂𝐺@OGamericana More evil from Cupich. Report is that he is forbidding the priests saying the St. Michael Prayer and the Hail Mary at the end of Mass. Illinois faithful, say it even more! []
Francis and Cupich also apparently want to eventually ban the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM). Why?

Might one reason be because Pope Leo XIII ordered this exorcism prayer be said at the conclusion of Mass in 1886, but Pope Paul VI issued the Novus Ordo Mass in 1968 and suppressed the TLM and St. Michael prayer which was liberated by Pope Benedict XVI to fight against Satan until Francis’s recent attack against it.

Aleteia reported the reason Pope Leo issued the exorcism was to protect the Church from “demonic spirits, who were gathering on the Eternal City (Rome)”:

According to Kevin Symonds, author ofPope Leo XIII and the Prayer to St. Michael, the vision likely occurred between 1884 and 1886 and took place during the celebration of Mass. Several different reports relate that Pope Leo had a visible change come over his face during the vision and one claims that his face was “pale and fearful.”

A cardinal at the time who knew the pope’s private secretary explains that “Pope Leo XIII truly had a vision of demonic spirits, who were gathering on the Eternal City (Rome). From that experience … comes the prayer which he wanted the whole Church to recite.”

[… ]

Whatever happened during Pope Leo’s vision, it appears certain that he did have a vision and what he saw was not pleasant. It prompted him to quickly compose the Prayer to St. Michael, and to request its use at the end of Low Masses…. he believed prayer was needed to dispel the darkness that hung over the world. []

Might Cupich’s banning the exorcism prayer point to a reason that Francis and he appear to dislike the Traditional Latin Mass?

Last century, the Catholic Herald summarized why Francis and Cupich may dislike the Pope Leo prayer against Satan which Leo believed “was needed to dispel the darkness that hung over the world”:

For the greater part of this century, the faithful recited the prayer to St. Michael at the end of the Mass. Pope Leo XIII (d. 1903) had a prophetic vision of the coming century of sorrow and war. After celebrating Mass, the Holy Father was conferring with his cardinals. Suddenly, he fell to the floor. The cardinals immediately called for a doctor. No pulse was detected, and the Holy Father was feared dead. Just as suddenly, Pope Leo awoke and said, “What a horrible picture I was permitted to see!” In this vision, God gave Satan the choice of one century in which to do his worst work against the Church. The devil chose the twentieth century. So moved was the Holy Father from this vision that he composed the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel: “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle! Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who roam about the world seeking the ruin of souls.” [] 

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost – Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”

– “If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him?”:

– “Could Francis be a Antipope even though the Majority of Cardinals claim he is Pope?”:

 –  LifeSiteNews, “Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers,” December 4, 2017:

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows “sexually active adulterous couples facing ‘complex circumstances’ to ‘access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'”

–  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

“The AAS statement… establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense.”

– On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

“Francis’ heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents.”

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

    I am in the Chicago Archdiocese. (pray for me) When Cupich (I won’t give him the courtesy of calling him ‘Cardinal’, because I think he should turn in his Miter and Crosier) came out with his immoral fetal cell containing kill shot MANDATE for all of the clergy and staff in the Archdiocese I sat down and cried, even though I don’t wear my heart on my sleeve. I’m just not an easy ‘cryer’. On the same day he foisted his evil prohibition of ‘no St Michael Prayer’ and ‘no Hail Mary’ after Mass and I knew absolutely that he was an evil man. No more sitting on the fence and giving him the benefit of the doubt. When a Priest, Bishop, Cardinal or even the Pope orders you to walk off a cliff, you are not obliged to obey. He first ordered his priests not to sign letters of religious exemptions for their parishioners for the kill shot, and quickly moved the goal post to THIS. i won’t be surprised if he prohibits parishioners from entering any Church in the Archdiocese if they don’t have their kill shot passport. I agree that it is he that will suffer the spiritual and maybe even eternal consequences of taking on St. Michael, ……not to speak of taking on The Blessed Mother!! Whoa be to him! That all said, I am very grateful that the Good Lord God has blessed our family as we are in the corner of the Archdiocese and very close to the Wisconsin State Line (Archdiocese of Milwaukee) where we have found a traditional Catholic parish that even offers the TLM. (which Archbishop Listecki has left alone, at least temporarily) It is only about a half hour drive from us. I will continue to keep him in prayer, even though this is very difficult for me with all the evil that permeates from his very being.

    Thank you for allowing me to vent,


    p.s. Oh and just a few weeks ago he gave the Mayor of Chicago (which is NOT a Catholic and IS a Lesbian who is “married” to her significant other (which she publicly flaunts) the Blessed Sacrament in the Eucharist. The hits from him just keep coming.
