God’s Now Warning From Akita

In April, 1957, Our Lady of America told the visionary, Sister Mildred, “Unless my children reform their lives, they will suffer great persecution. If man himself will not take upon himself the penance necessary to atone for his sins and those of others, God in his justice will have to send upon him the punishment necessary to atone for his transgressions.”

Sister Agnes Sasagawa, visionary of Our Lady’s approved warnings at Akita, Japan, has received a new and urgent warning from God for now!

On October 13, 1973, Sister Agnes received a message from our Lady. She said,

If men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge [the Great Flood] such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the sign left by my son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests.

On May 1, 1976, the first Saturday of the month, an angel told Sister Agnes, “Attach great importance to this day for the glory of God and of his Holy Mother. With courage spread this devotion (the Fatima First Saturday Devotion) among the greatest number.”

On December 10, 1925, in Pontevedra, Spain, Our Lady of Fatima appeared to the visionary Sister Lucia. She requested the practice of the First Saturday Devotion that consists of doing the following with  the intention of making reparation for the offenses to her Immaculate Heart: Receive the sacrament of Confession within 8 days before or after the First Saturday of each month (March 7 this month); and on that day receive the Eucharist; pray five decades of the Rosary; and keep Our Lady company for 15 minutes while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary.

46 years later, on October 6, 2019, at 3:30 A.M., Sister Agnes received a new warning message at Akita from an angel. The message was similar to the prophet Jonah’s message of warning to the idol worshiping Ninevites to repent or be destroyed. Providentially, that message was today’s Old Testament Mass Reading. Jonah’s message was, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” (Jonah 3:4).

“The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.” (Jonah 3:5). When the King of Nineveh heard about the message he got up from his throne, removed his robe, covered himself with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened. (Jonah 3:10). May we imitate the good example of the pagan Ninevites who worshiped idols!

Sister Agnes received the new warning message on October 6, the same day that Pope Francis inaugurated the Amazon Synod where he allowed the display of idols that some people venerated, like the Ninevites did in the past, in St. Peter’s Basilica, St. Santamaria church and in the Vatican gardens. For the full story of idols at the Amazon Synod see my article here.

This is the first public message that Sister Agnes has received in the last 46 years. She is now 88 years old. Signs and wonders accompanied Sister Agnes’ original message, including the weeping of her statue of Our Lady of Akita 101 times. Scientific examination proved that they were human tears.

In 1992, I was one of the leaders of Dr. Rosalie Turton’s 101 Foundation Peace Pilgrimage, named after the 101 times that the statute wept. We had approximately 1000 pilgrims in two 747 jumbo jets. I was part of a very small group that privately visited the sick Sister Agnes and prayed at her bedside in her convent.

We also attended a private conference for our pilgrimage at which Bishop Ito, Sister Agnes’s Bishop, told us that he had approved all of her messages. In June 1988, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (later Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI), Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, gave a definitive judgment on the Akita events and messages as reliable and worthy of belief.

This is the Now Warning message that Sister Agnes received on October 6, 2019, “Cover in ashes and please pray the Penitential Rosary every day. You [Sister Agnes] become like a child and every day please give sacrifice.”

The warning was short and to the point, as was the warning to the Ninevites. May we respond to it now as they did!

I believe that the phrase, “Cover in ashes,” is metaphorical and does not mean that God wants us to literally cover ourselves in ashes, as did the Ninevites, but rather it means that we should assume a penitential attitude, as we should now be doing in Lent.

The translators of the message from Japanese to English were not theologians. The first translation was “pray for a repentant rosary every day.” The second translation was “pray the Penitential Rosary every day.” The second translation used a proper name that some people believed referred to a particular form of the Rosary. However, I believe that the proper translation should be “pray a penitential Rosary every day.”

A penitential Rosary is a Rosary that is prayed with contrition and in sorrow for one’s own sins or the sins of others and for their conversion. It is offered in atonement and reparation to our merciful God who is so horribly offended by the sins of the modern world. Let us fervently pray the Rosary daily for the conversion of all people who are lost in sin and have not come to know the love of the one true God.

There is also a formal Penitential Rosary that Jesus dictated to Maria Concepcion Zuniga Lopez on December 26, 1970. It can be found here.

I was very skeptical when I first read Sister Agnes’s new message of warning on the Internet last Fall. The only source that I could find was a very small radio station and that was not enough for me. But Our Lady kept nudging me to dig deeper. At that time, I was working with Mary Ann Harold, a friend of mine for over 15 years. She is a Guardian of our Visitation Image of Our Lady of America and hosts many Holy Hours with Our Lady of America for Life, Purity and Protection.

In November, after Mary Ann had received the new warning message from Sister Agnes, she took the Image to the hotel that hosted the United States Bishops’ Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. She led a group to their hotel and they remained outside in prayer. Later, 3 bishops joined them, notably Bishop Joseph Strickland from Tyler, Texas, who knelt in prayer before the image.
