12 April 1947 – 12 April 2022. Some years ago Rachel Lanz had an account at the NCRegister about Bruno Cornacchiola, a wanna-be assassin of Pius XII. Bruno was baptized Catholic, but then joined the anti-clerical marauders in Italy. He re-verted back to the Catholic Church by way of Our Lady of Revelation, who appeared at Tre Fontane on the outskirts of Rome, where Saint Paul had been beheaded.
At the time, Pius XII who was wanting to say something about the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, soul and body into heaven, and would do so with an infallible pronouncement three years, six months later, in 1950. Bruno saw Our Lady with his three children. She was dressed in white, wearing a green mantle with a pink band, holding the Scriptures. She had a message for Pius XII that Bruno himself had to deliver: “My body could not decay and did not decay. My Son and the angels took me to heaven.”
But there’s more to the story
In my own years of studies at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, and in my years of using the library of the PBI for my doctoral thesis, I ran across a volume of the proceedings of the 1948 get-together of the just-then-founded and ever disgusting Associazione biblica italiana. Their very first symposium was effectively an answer to Pius XII’s inquiry about the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, soul and body into heaven. They did everything in every way, every angle, to destroy any possible biblical foundations for what Pius XII wanted to do. They didn’t succeed, of course. But Mary saw this coming a year before it happened.
Just my opinion, but what Mary accomplished at Tre Fontane as Our Lady of Revelation was directed against a particular cardinal who had everything to do with destroying the Catholic Church on all levels throughout the last century. He had everything to do with this get-together of the ABI, everything to do with rehabilitating the modernist heresy, everything to do with false ecumenism, everything to do with the absolute worst ambiguities of various sentences in documents of Vatican II, everything do do with the destruction and disrespect for Sacred Scripture, you know, that Cardinal, who shall remain nameless here, for even today, now more than 53 years after his death, he is still protected with extreme emotion at “Ecumenism” and the Secretariat of State in the Roman Curia. I have personal experience with that many times over, right to the top.
While this apparition brought about the re-version of Bruno, who was set on murdering the Pope, this apparition was also meant to be a wake-up call for that Cardinal, who was set on controlling the Pope, and not for the good.
So, notice this: Jesus’ good mom is out to convert lost souls. It worked in the case of Bruno, but did it work for the Cardinal? I don’t know. What I do know is that not all of us want to go to heaven. What I do know is that our Lady would want that we make it to heaven if we want to repent of our sins.
