In 1947 the Blessed Virgin Mary, under the title of the Virgin of the Revelation, revealed the future crisis in the Church that would especially afflict the priesthood.
The Virgin appeared to Bruno Cornacchiola, an avowed enemy of the Church, at Tre Fontane, the site of St. Paul's martyrdom near Rome, and said:
The entire Church will undergo a tremendous trial, to clean up the mass of rotten flesh that has infiltrated into Her ministers. … The wrath of Satan is no longer restrained; the Spirit of God is withdrawn from the earth, the Church will be left a widow, behold the funeral drape, She will be left to the mercy of the world.
She instructed Catholics to resist the future onslaught of evil and predicted a victorious outcome to the coming crisis:
Children, become saints and sanctify yourselves more, always love each other. … Marshal yourselves under the banner of Christ. Working in this way, you will see the fruits of victory in the awakening of consciences to the good; despite being in evil, you will see, through your cooperative and efficacious help, sinners converted and the Fold filled up with saved souls.
