“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

The tale of two financial crashes

The restoration of the Catholic Papacy

In 1870, the Pope's holdings were left in an uncertain situation when Rome itself was annexed by the Piedmont-led forces which had united the rest of Italy, after a nominal resistance by the papal forces. Between 1861 and 1929 the status of the Pope was referred to as the "Roman Question". They were undisturbed in their palace, and given certain recognitions by the Law of Guarantees, including the right to send and receive ambassadors. But they did not recognize the Italian king's right to rule in Rome, and they refused to leave the Vatican compound until the dispute was resolved in 1929. Other states continued to maintain international recognition of the Holy See as a sovereign entity. In practice Italy made no attempt to interfere with the Holy See within the Vatican walls. However, they confiscated church property in many other places, including, perhaps most notably, the Quirinal Palace, formerly the pope's official residence. Pope Pius IX (1846-1878), the last ruler of the Papal States, claimed that after Rome was annexed he was a "Prisoner in the Vatican". This situation was resolved on 11 February 1929 between the Holy See and the Kingdom of Italy.

The treaty was signed by Benito Mussolini on behalf of King Victor Emmanuel III and by Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Gasparri for Pope Pius XI. The Lateran Treaty and the Concordat established the independent State of the Vatican City and granted Catholicism special status in Italy. In 1984, a new concordat between the Holy See and Italy modified certain provisions of the earlier treaty, including the position of Catholicism as the Italian state religion.

The Great Depression

The Great Depression was a worldwide economic downturn starting in most places in 1929 and ending at different times in the 1930s for different countries. It was the largest and most important economic depression in modern history, and is used in the 21st century as a benchmark on how far the world's economy can fall. The Great Depression originated in the United States; historians most often use as a starting date the stock market crash on October 29, 1929, known as Black Tuesday. The end of the depression in the U.S. is associated with the onset of the war economy of World War II, beginning around 1939.

Is it a coincidence that the restoration of the Vatican occurred shortly before the stock market crash and Adolf Hitler’s effort to remove any entity that defied the church of Rome? Who is like unto the beast? Who can make war with him? Who was behind Hitler, supporting him with absolution from guilt and reprisal? –The restored Papacy, the rulers of the darkness of this world.

Today, with the escalation of the church before the whole world; today, when every head of state reverenced John Paul II at his funeral; today, when the Protestants are giving back their allegiance to their “mother,” today, we are about to experience another collapsing of the world economy as the Papacy announces its place as the very center of world affairs. Never again will it be shoved aside as unimportant and unnecessary. Never again! “We will make sure of that!” Unrecognized as important and essential, the Papacy has long seethed for world worship, and now is prepared to reclaim its seat of power and great authority.

Their army of Jesuits, dressed in sacredotal robes or common clothing and holding thousands of offices in every government and in the financial world, await their individual orders to do this or that. “Weaken the economy! Move the people to love this world and to be greedy for more money! Whip the financial world into a fury of moneygetting! Train everyone to think credit is absolutely necessary for life! Invent new, unethical methods to make a profit from the stock market until their rock-steady economy is in ruins! Destroy the enemies of the Church!”

“Keep up closely with the powerful insiders who know when a stock will be worthless and needs to be unloaded! Never lose in the marketplace; always and ever make a large profit and send that wealth to Vatican coffers! And when you, my army, have stolen all their wealth, then convince the governments to spend all their reserves to keep their failing economies alive! Then push even harder to bring back fear of loss, desire for competition, a feverish hope by greed, and self-preservation in a vengeance so that the nations’ reserves, used to prop up the world economy, is squandered, and all their money is in our banks! Then, they will come crawling to us on their knees, begging for us to save them! Then, after they have suffered awhile, we will condescend to help them—for a price.” Spiritual totalitarianism—devil possession; the Mark in the forehead. Tyrannical religion—brutal religion with huge teeth and powerful claws; the Mark in the right hand. A very heavy tribute upon their necks.

“If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

“The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” (Rev. 14:9-11).
