The Three Days Of Darkness

Excerpts from Yves Dupont (1922-1979)


Here are the proximate signs in their probable order of occurrence. This, to be sure, is only my own opinion, and I may be wrong for I am no prophet myself; but, after studying a large number of prophecies, this order appears to me to be the most likely:
  • Flouting of church laws, irreverence and immodesty in church, fall in attendance at church.
  • Lack of charity towards others, heartlessness, indifference, divisions, contentions, godlessness, pride in human knowledge.
  • Breakdown of family life: immorality, adultery, perversion of youth via the media (e.g. homosexuals giving lectures in schools), immodest fashions (e.g. mini-skirts, bikinis, see-throughs), people concerned only with eating, drinking, dancing and other pleasures.
  • Civil commotions, contempt for authority, downfall of governments, confusion in high places, corruption, coups d'etat, civil war, revolution. (The first four proximate signs have already come to pass, at least partly; for we are yet to see civil war and revolution in the West. But the sequence of events is not strictly chronological; there is room for some overlapping. Thus, the 5th proximate sign seems to have begun also.)
  • Floods and droughts, crop failures, unusual weather, tornadoes, earthquakes, tidal waves, famines, epidemics, unknown diseases (e.g. new strains of viruses).


This will take place between the proximate and the immediate signs. It will be a supernatural occurrence.

During the Warning, everyone will be made aware of his/her own sinfulness, and many will wish to die, but the Warning itself will be completely harmless.

The Warning must be viewed as the last act of mercy from God, a final appeal to mankind to do penance before the three days of darkness and the destruction of three-quarters of the human race. At a time when the murder of unborn babies and the sin of Sodom and Lesbos have become respectable and sometimes legal, we should not wonder why God is going to punish mankind.

By that time, war and revolution will have already caused a high death toll, and Communism will be victorious, but all this will be as nothing compared with the death toll caused by the Three Days. 


It will be a bitterly cold winter night in the Northern hemisphere. (Presumably, a very cold summer night in Australia or, by contrast, a torrid night.) The wind will howl and roar. Lightning and thunderbolts of an unprecedented magnitude will strike the earth. The whole earth will shake, heavenly bodies will be disturbed – (this will be the beginning of the Three Days). Every Demon, every evil spirit will be released from hell and allowed to roam the earth. Terrifying apparitions will take place. Many will die from sheer fright. Fire will rain forth from the sky, all large cities will be destroyed, poisonous gases will fill the air, cries and lamentations everywhere. The unbelievers will burn in the open like withered grass. The entire earth will be afflicted; it will look like a huge graveyard.

As soon as you notice that bitterly cold night, go indoors, lock all doors and windows, pull down the blinds, stick adhesive paper on vents and around windows and doors. Do not answer calls from outside, do not look at the windows, or you will die on the spot: keep your eyes down to make sure you do not see the windows; the Wrath of God is mighty and no one should attempt to behold it. Light blessed wax candles; nothing else will burn, but the candles will not be extinguished once lit. Nothing will put them out in the houses of the faithful, but they will not burn in the houses of the godless. Sprinkle holy water about the house and especially in the vicinity of doors and windows: the devils fear holy water. Bless yourself with it and anoint your five senses with it: eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, feet, and forehead. Keep on hand a sufficient supply of drinking water and, if possible, food also (but you can live without food for three days.) Kneel down and pray incessantly with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the floor. Make acts of contrition, faith, hope, and charity. Above all say the Rosary and meditate on the Sorrowful mysteries.

Some people, especially children, will be taken up to Heaven beforehand to spare them the horror of these days. People caught outdoors will die instantly. Three-quarters of the human race will be exterminated, – more men than women. No one will escape the terror of these days.

Blessed Anna-Maria Taigi stated in regards to this terrible Three Days of Darkness Chastisement:

    "God will send two punishments: one will be in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy."
    "All the enemies of the Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of a few whom God will soon convert. The air shall be infected by demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms."

But, when all seems lost and hopeless, then, in the twinkling of an eye, the ordeal will be over: the sun will rise and shine again as in springtime over a purified earth.

Some nations will disappear entirely, and the face of the earth will be changed. There will be no more "Big Business" and huge factories which sap men's souls. Craftsmanship will revive, and assembly lines will give way to the working bench.
People will return to the land, but food will be scarce for about three years. Married women will bear many children, for it will be regarded as a disgrace not to have children, no more "career women" addicted to the "pill". Unmarried females, “ there will be many, will enter the religious orders and form large congregations of Nuns within the reborn Church. Disease will decrease dramatically, and mental illnesses will be rare, for man will have retrieved his natural environment. It will be an age of faith, true brotherhood between neighbors, civil harmony, peace, and prosperity. The land will yield crops as never before. Police will have little work to do: crime will disappear almost entirely. Mutual trust and honesty will be universal. There will be little work for lawyers, either. All the manpower which is currently taken up by the wickedness of the modern world will be released and available for the production of useful commodities. Thus, prosperity will be very great. This wonderful period will probably last 30 years approximately.

As soon as you see the sun rise again at the end of the Three Days, drop to your knees and give thanks to God.

Be warned, SPREAD THE MESSAGE, but do not fear: it would be an offense to God to show lack of confidence in His protection. Those who spread the message will be protected, but the scoffers, the skeptics, and those who dismiss the message because they are frightened, will not escape the chastisement.


SPREAD THE MESSAGE; Remain in the state of grace. Go to Mass (Note: this is not possible for the majority of true Catholics during this prophesied (by Our Lady of La Salette) "Eclipse of the Church". See imperative information on how to fulfill your Mass obligation and about valid Confessions.) Say your rosary every day. Obtain some bees wax candles and have these blessed by a True (approbated) priest connected to Pope Gregory XVII and his Successors. Do not buy ordinary white candles; they are not made of wax. Pray for the liberty and exultation of the True Church. Say the prayer to St. Michael which His Holiness Pope Leo XIII composed after witnessing a terrifying vision of Satan's power. Wear the Brown Scapular and the miraculous medal. Deny yourself some legitimate pleasures and entertainment; many of the holy individuals who have predicted this chastisement, insist on this. Eat sparingly, frugally, to sustain life properly - think of food as you would medicine. When the proximate signs are over, i.e., war and revolution culminating in the victory of communism, when you behold the Warning, then store up food, drinking water, blankets and other necessities.

The Most Holy Rosary

The Sorrowful And Immaculate Hear Of Mary

The Rosary is, in form, a meditation of the chief mysteries of the life, death and glory of Jesus Christ and of His Blessed Mother.

The Rosary  is made up of two things:
  • Mental Prayer - the meditation on the mysteries.
  • Vocal Prayer - the recitation of the 15 decades.
Each decade is headed by an Our Father followed with 10 Hail Marys. With the recitation of the Rosary, one should  meditate on and contemplate the 15 principal virtues which Jesus and Mary practiced in the 15 mysteries of the Holy Rosary.

The Three Mysteries
  • Joyful Mystery
  • Sorrowful Mystery
  • Glorious Mystery
Origin of the Rosary

Saint Dominic withdraw into a forest near Toulouse when he saw the gravity of the people's sins that hindered the conversion of the Albigensians. He prayed unceasingly for three days and three nights. He wept and did harsh penances to appease the anger of Almighty God. He used his discipline so much that his body was lacerated and he fell into a coma.

Our Lady appeared to him with three angels. She said, "Dear Dominic, do you know  which weapon the Blessed Trinity wants to be  used  to reform the world?"

"Oh, my Lady," Saint Dominic anwered, "You know far better than I do because next to your son, Jesus Christ, you have always been the chief instrument of our salvation."

Then Our Lady replied, "I want you to know that in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Angelic Psalter which is the foundation stone of the New Testament. Therefore, if you want to reach these hardened souls and win them over to God, preach my Psalter."

So he arose, comforted with so much zeal for the conversion of the people in that district, he made straight to the Cathedral. At once, unseen angels rang the bells to gather the people together and Saint Dominic began to preach.

At the beginning of his sermon, an appalling storm broke out, the earth shook, the sun darkened and there was so much thunder and lightning that all were much afraid. Their fear was greater when they looked at the picture of Our Lady, exposed in a prominent place, saw her arms raised to heaven three times to call down God's vengeance upon them if they failed to be converted and to amend their lives and seek the protection of the Holy Mother of God.

God wished by means of these supernatural phenomena, to spread the new devotion of The Holy Rosary and  make it more widely known.

At last, at the prayer of Saint Dominic, the storm stopped and he started preaching. So fervently and compellingly, he explained the importance and value of the Holy Rosary that almost all the people of Toulouse embraced it and renounced their false beliefs. In a very short time, a great improvement was seen in the town. People began leading Christian lives and gave up their former bad habits.

(Note: The picture of the SORROWFUL AND IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY  was somewhat mysterious in its origin. This was discovered at the time of the 1918 armistice in the cellar of the boarding school where Berthe Petit, a humble Franciscan Tertiary, had been educated. After the troops had departed, a Bernardine nun found a pornographic picture which she tore to pieces and threw to the flames.  To her astonishment she found this beautiful representation of the Blessed Virgin! It seemed to be a combination of the art of both the Eastern and the Western Rites. The facial features resembled those of the well known Pieta. Prayer before this picture has brought signal favors.

Confided by Our Lord to Berthe Petit, "Teach souls to love the Heart of My Mother pierced by the very sorrow which pierced Mine." (December 25, 1909).

"The Heart of my Mother has the right to be called Sorrowful and I wish this title be placed before that of Immaculate because she has won it herself. The Church has defined in the case of My Mother what I, myself, had ordained - Her Immaculate Conception. This right which My Mother has to a title of justice, is now, according to My express wish, be known and universally accepted. She has earned it by her identification with My sorrows; by her sufferings; by her sacrifices and her immolation in the Calvary endured in perfect correspondence with My grace for the salvation of mankind." (September 6, 1911).

"It is the heart that must be changed. This would be accomplished only by the Devotion proclaimed, explained, preached and recommended everywhere. Recourse to My Mother, under this title I wish for her universally, would be the last help I shall give before the end of time." (July 2, 1940).

August 23, 2011 - Tuesday

8AM EDT, Irene strengthened to a Category 2 hurricane with its center was headed toward the Turks and Caicos Islands and the southeastern Bahamas.  Her maximum sustained winds were near 100 mph (160 kmh); located near 20.6 North and 70.6 West, about 70 miles south-southeast of Grand Turk Island and moved to the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 kmh). Minimum center pressure is 987 millibars. Various hurricane and tropical storm warning were in effect.

2PM EDT, the center was 55 miles south of Frand Turk Island. The island was in hurricane -force winds as Irene  headed to move west-northwest at 10 mph (17 kmh) with minimum sustained winds near 100 mph (160 kmh).  She was located near 20.7 North and 71.2 West. Minimum central pressure was near 977 millibars.

The National Hurricane Center noted that "Irene could become a major hurricane by Wednesday."

August 24, 2011 - Wednesday

Now became hurricane Category 3 at 8AM EDT as it moved toward the Crooked and Acklins Islands in the Bahamas with maximum sustained winds increased to 115 mph (186 kmh). On this category, a hurricane can cause devastating damage according to the NHC's webpage: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/sshws.shtml.

August 25, 2011 - Thursday

NASA satellite data showed Irene's diameter was about one-third the length of the U.S. Atlantic Coastline. The distance from Augusta, Maine to Miami, Florida was 1662.55 miles. The force-winds extended 255 miles from the center that made Irene 510 miles in diameter.

By 11AM EDT, Irene moved north and was 75 miles (105 km) east-northeast of Nassau near 25.9 North latitude and 76.8 West longitude. Irene's winds dropped slightly and moved to the north-northwest near 13 mph (20 kmh).

At 2:59 AM EDT, Irene was right off the Florida, Georgia and South Carolina costs.

8AM EDT, the hurricane was centered 375 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, near 30.0 North and 77.3 West. Irene moved 0.1 degree to the west in the last 3 hours. Maximum sustained winds were near 110 mph, and Irene is moving north at 14 mph. Minimum central pressure is 945 millibars.

Rainfall is a serious issue with Irene as she is expected to drop 6 to 10 inches with isolated amounts of 15 inches from eastern North Carolina into southeastern Virginia, eastern Maryland, Delaware, eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, southeastern New York, Long Island, Western Connecticut, and western Massachusetts through Monday morning.

August 26, 2011 - Friday

At 2:59 AM EDT, Irene was right off the Florida, Georgia and South Carolina costs.

Hurricane Irene was extending her clouds over the southeastern U.S. Coastal evacuations were made in New York City, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and North and South Carolina.

8AM EDT, the hurricane was centered 375 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, near 30.0 North and 77.3 West. Irene moved 0.1 degree to the west in the last 3 hours. Maximum sustained winds were near 110 mph, and Irene is moving north at 14 mph. Minimum central pressure is 945 millibars.

Still in Category 2 and remained in that intensity at 3:10 PM EDT.

1:40 PM EDT, the wide cloud of Irene stretched over a third of the U.S. east coast.

2 PM EDT, Arrived along the coast of the Carolinas with its center found about 300 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, near 31.2 North and 77.5 West with Its maximum sustained winds were near 100 mph and was moving to the north near 14 mph. Minimum central pressure was 951 millibars.

August 27, 2011 - Saturday

11AM EDT, Irene's tropical storm force winds extended outward 260 miles that made the extent 520 miles in diameter.

Weather Channel Reporters had it that hurricane Irene sustained winds on the beach of Nags Head, NC near 60-65 mph as Irene continued battering eastern North Carolina and tropical storm conditions were spreading into the Delaware, Maryland and Virginia coast while at the same time gave its first brief moderate rainfall to the Washington, DC area.

In Virginia Beach, VA, two tornadoes had been reported by the Weather Channel and warning was in effect.

With a maximum of sustained winds near 85 mph, Irene moved toward north-northeast near 15 mph. A wind gust to 87 mph was reported at Cape Hatteras, NC while further Northfolk Naval Air Station reported a wind gust to 63 mph.

Antipopes In The Vatican?

Pope Gregory XVII - The true Pope in Exile
A white smoke signal first appeared for about half an hour from the Sistine Chapel chimney. People outside the Vatican were shouting, 'Bianco! Bianco!' In Italian, it means white. A white smoke means  a pope has been elected while black smoke indicates failure.  It is the traditional signal announcing the election of a new pope.

Ordinarily, the elected pope would appear on the balcony within twenty minutes. It has been said that the crowd waited for a full half hour in suspense for the pope to show up. Nothing happened. Confusion among the people sat in wondering whether the smoke was meant to be black or white. Media already made its announcement that a new pope has been elected.This happened in 1958 of the 26th of October.

Something strange happened. It was twice during the day that a smoke was let out from the chimney. The white smoke billowed white but quickly turned unquestionably black. If it weren't for Mr. Scortesco, the mystery behind the white smoke and the secret post-election meeting of the 1958 Conclave may not have been uncovered. Scortesco was the cousin of two members of the Vatican's Noble Guard and the President of the Noble Guard. The guards were responsible for guarding the conclaves of 1958 and 1963 - making sure that no communication occurred with the outside.

Scortesco revealed in his published letter that, “In the case of John XXIII (1958) and of Paul VI (1963), there were communications with the outside.  It was thus known that there were several ballots in the first conclave [1958] which resulted in the election of Cardinal Tedeschini and in the second [1963], Cardinal Siri.” (Excerpt from the French Newsletter, Introibo, No. 61, July-August-September, 1988, Association Noel Pinot, Angers, France, p. 3.)"

Scortesco obviously obtained the shocking revelation from his Noble Guard cousins. The letter was published in Introibo. Shortly after its publication, Scortesco was found burned alive in his bed.

With that revelation, Scortesco meant that Cardinal Tedeschini (and not Antipope John XXIII) was actually elected first in 1958. And Cardinal Siri (and not Antipope Paul VI) was elected first in 1963. Highlighting the words 'communicating with the outside' in Scortesco's published letter, what did he mean by that? In his later writings, it indicated that there was a communication with a Jewish Freemasonry or the B'nai Brith. Therefore, it would mean that if there were an unlawful influence from the outside with the Papal election then this would also mean that such elections were invalid.

For a deeper insight on this, please read: The Cardinal Siri Elections in Brief and The Pope In Red.

What Happened Inside the Conclave?

In an interview obtained by Mr. Gary Giuffre conducted in London, England in July 1993 with Fr. Jean-Marie Charles-Roux, a former Vatican official and intelligence officer claimed that Joseph Cardinal Siri of Genoa had been elected and also accepted the Papal office. He was shoved aside without his abdicating. A very serious threat was delivered to Siri and the assembled Cardinals through Cardinal Tisserant (the Dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals). A group of cardinals in league with Tisserant ordered the ministers to change the mixture in the stove to wet straw to produce a black smoke outside. When the conclave officials refused to follow, a group of cardinals brushed the monsignors aside and dump the wet straw into the stove themselves.

Malachi Martin reveals more of What Happened in 1958?

What Has Become of Cardinal Siri After The Papal Throne Was Taken Over?
Cardinal Giuseppe Siri of Genoa, Italy was the truly elected Pope on October 26, 1958. He was put under constant death threat (duress) for more that 30 years. But through Divine Providence, he was able to create Cardinals which included designating a Camerlengo (Chamberlain) to continue the mission of the Church Hierarchy in 1988. Pope Siri chose the name Gregorius XVII. He created a 'Continuance of Papacy Plan" from 1988 to 1989 with a Papal directive to His secret Cardinals to ELECT His successor promptly where he to die in an unforeseen manner (this occurred). He died in exile on May 2, 1989.

You'll find more information about Pope Gregory in Today's Catholic World.

Understanding The Papacy

The Office of the Papacy is the office that Christ instituted in Saint Peter (see Mt. 16:18-20; John 21:15-17) in which he was made the chief of the Apostles and visible head of the Church by Jesus Christ. The Papacy is occupied by every true and lawful Bishop of Rome, who becomes successor to St. Peter in the primacy over the universal (Catholic) Church of Jesus Christ. This means and guarantees that every time there is a true and valid occupant of the Office he is endowed by Christ with infallibility (in his authoritative and binding teaching capacity, not in everything he says or teaches); he is endowed with supreme jurisdiction over the universal Church; and he is the visible head of the Church.  That remains true for every true and lawful occupant of the Papal Office.  Those teachings proclaimed by the popes in history with their binding authority (such as the Council of Trent or the Council of Florence or a solemn Papal Bull on faith, etc.) constitute the deposit of faith – the unchangeable teachings to which Catholics must submit, and on which they base what they believe as the faithful transmission of the teaching of Scripture and Tradition.  The Papacy doesn’t mean that the Church will have a true pope at all times, as Church history and more than 200 papal vacancies prove, nor does it mean that antipopes reigning from Rome are an impossibility (such as Antipope Anacletus II, who reigned in Rome from 1130-1138) – as is the case today.  

More Insights Of The Topic Is Well Explained on: What Is The Papacy?

Sedevacantism – the Chair of Peter is Empty

There have been 260 valid popes in Church history and more than 40 antipopes.  There have been more than 200 papal vacancies (periods without a pope).  The facts available in The Most Holy Family Monastery  prove that the last five men who have claimed to be popes have been and are antipopes.

I highly recommend that you read the links made available here to educate you of what is truly happening with our world today. Let us not turn deaf ears to the truth but rather keep an open mind to everything. I have read too many articles of these topics but the links to the websites that I used here as references are the only ones that I feel highly reliable in terms of its well substantiated interpretations.

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi: Three Days of Darkness

Anna Maria Taigi was one of the great mystics of the last century. She achieved sanctification by living the ordinary life of a wife and mother in a spirit of Christian mission and surrender to the will of God.

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi was born in Siena on May 29, 1769. Her parents, Louis Giannetti and Mary Masi moved to Rome due to financial difficulties. This was when Anna Maria was only six years old.

At a very young age, Anna Maria married Domenico Taigi who was a young pious man with a difficult and rather coarse character. Given that, Anna Maria was more concerned of his husband's virtue.

Their marriage was of highest Christian principles. With a profound understanding of social and moral values of the Christian marriage, Blessed Anna Maria made God the center of her home. She avoided anything that would disturb the family peace by being docile to her husband. She avoided anything that would irritate him. Despite the impoverished circumstances, Anna Maria was generous to the poor.

Out of the seven children she bore, three of whom died in childhood. She raised her two boys and two girls with the most accurate and complete religious secular education.

To love God and to serve him in everything was her greatest desire. She was greatly devoted to the Holy Eucharist, to the Most Holy Trinity, to the Infant Jesus, to the Sacred Passion of Our Lord, and ever had the tenderest devotion to Our Lady.

On December 26, 1808, Anna Maria entered the Third Order of the Most Holy Trinity. She was enriched by God with the many supernatural gifts. The apparition of a golden luminous globe like a miniature sun was the most unusual gifts she received from heaven. She could see both present and future events anywhere in the world including the state of grace of individuals both living and dead.

Anna Maria realized that one of her role was to expiate the sins of others. She sustained great austerities for the poor souls in purgatory. These souls, once set free, came to thank her. When she touched the sick, they were cured. Others that she warned of their death, died in holiness and in state of grace. Anna Maria, in her life time, suffered in body and soul.

The Church declared her Blessed in 1920. Anna Maria died on June 9, 1837. Her mortal body lies in the Chapel of the Madonna in the Basilica of San Crisogono, Rome, Italy.

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi saw a major and as of yet still forthcoming Chastisement for the world: "God will send two punishments: one will be in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy."

"All the enemies of the Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of a few whom God will soon convert. The air shall be infected by demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms." (Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837 A.D.) who was Beatified by Pope Benedict XV in 1920.)



Same prophetic vision was also foretold by Padre Pio, Elizabeth Canori-Mora, Rosa-Colomba Asdente, Palma d'Oria, in Italy; Father Nectou, in Belgium; St. Hildegard, in Germany; Pere Lamy, Marie Baourdi, Marie Martel, Marie-Julie Jahenny, in France. (This list is not exhaustive; many more mystics have announced the Three Days.) 

Here are a few quotes from these mystics: 

Sr. Elena Aiello

"The times are grievous. The whole world is in turmoil because it has become worse than at the time of the deluge! Everything is in suspense, like a thread; when this thread breaks, the justice of God will (strike) like a thunderbolt and will complete its terrible course of purification."

Padre Pio

NEW YEAR'S EVE 1949:  Jesus to Padre Pio

"My son, My son, I have been longing for this hour in which I again shall reveal to you the great love of My heart . . . Pray and make reparation to Me.  Admonish others to do the same because the time is near at hand in which I shall visit My unfaithful people because they have not heeded the time of My grace.  Persevere in prayer, so that your adversary shall have no dominion over you. Tell My people to be prepared at all times, for My judgment shall come upon them suddenly and when least expected – and not one shall escape My hands, I shall find them all!  I shall protect the just. Watch the sun and moon and the stars of the Heavens. When they appear to be unduly disturbed and restless, know that the day is not far away.  Stay united in prayer and watching until the angel of destruction has passed your doors.  Pray that these days will be shortened."  (Read more...(Read More...)

Venerable Elizabeth Canori-Mora (19th century, Italy)

“The sky took on a morbid blue color which terrified everyone who looked at it. A dark wind blew everywhere. An impassioned and mournful shrieking filled the air, like the terrible roar of a fierce lion, and resounded all over the earth in blood curdling echoes."  (Read More...)

Although the Church does not oblige us to believe in any particular prophecy as seen by the mystics, the question remains, "How could we explain that these people from different distant places were describing the same thing?"

Antimatter Probe

Image of Antimatter

The first time my knowledge was challenged with Antimatter was when I read the novel "Angels and Demons", written by Dan Brown. I know nothing of its existence even until then. I thought it was just a figment of the author's imagination. Little did I know that it's for real.

What is Antimatter?

Antimatter, to make it simple, is described as sub-atomic particles with properties opposite those of normal matter particles; also have normal gravity.

In 1928, English Physicist, Paul Dirac has put forth the idea of the existence of antiparticles which confirmed in experiments by American Physicist Carl Anderson in 1932. Dirac derived equations which would work for an electron with a negative charge and an electron with a positive charge - an antiparticle. 

Antimatter And Its Dangers

Theoretically speaking, the Universe should contain an equal amount of antimatter as normal matter but we cannot observe any large quantities of antimatter to begin with. Scientists aren't sure why antimatter is rare in today's universe. 

Antimatter has been very difficult to handle because matter and antimatter don't get on, destroying each other instantly on contact in a violent flash of energy. Antimatter can be dangerous if found in large quantities, via annihilation. However, it is so rare, at least, in this part of the Universe - small quantities available do not present any danger at all. In this world, it can be found at big accelerator facilities, such as CERN in Switzerland or in deep outer space.

Antimatter trapped for over 15 mins by CERN Scientists

So now, if each type of particle has its own antiparticle and if we are surrounded with matter, where did all the antimatter go?

The Use Of Antimatter

Antimatter is currently used for Positron Emission Tomography (PET). The positrons are antimatter. This is highly beneficial for located cancer sites in the body. It can also be used to monitor brain activity and to measure certain material properties  important for polymers and material damage.

Antimatter Explained in Kids' Language

Antimatter is a 'mirror of the Universe' or a 'mirror image of matter'. Let's put it this way: Look at yourself in the mirror. What if your image in the mirror really exists? Then that image exists somewhere - it would be called an 'antiyou'. Physicists even imagined that somewhere far away there could be a world that looks just like our own, or rather like the mirror image of it. It would be an antiworld with antistars, antisuns, antiwater, all made of ANTIMATTER!

Antimatter Belt Around Earth Discovered 

BBC News: August 7, 2011, For the first time, the Payload for Antimatter Matter Exploration and Light-nuclei Astrophysics or PAMELA spotted a thin band of antimatter particles called antiprotons enveloping the Earth. PAMELA was launched in 2006 to study the nature of high-energy particles from the Sun and from beyond our Solar System - so-called cosmic rays. Read more...

Arctic Warming Causes Ice Melting

Due to the rising temperature, climate in the north polar region had become warmer during the past few decades that causes ice to melt in the said region.

Modern science have a lot of ways to find out and monitor what's going on in the Arctic region. We now have satellites that collect data from above that would tell where it is melting and how fast ice is moving towards the ocean. We all know that Greenland is packed with ice but as our planet gets warmer, glaciers are melting. It is even melting faster now than ever before.

The most logical thing to think about is when icebergs calve off a glacier into the ocean, sea level would definitely rise because the melted ice is added to the ocean. Many glaciers are melting quickly.  Thawing permafrost releases greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. Though there's only a tiny amount of greenhouse gases in Earth's  atmosphere, they have a tremendous effect on climate.

What happens when temperature gets warmer? Not only would glaciers melt but other things would follow. Plants and animals are moving further north to find a suitable habitat for them. And if this continues to happen, many species of each kind could not survive.

Melting ice from different Arctic areas is feared to cause enough flood in low lying cities such as Shanghai, China, New York City, Boston, Halifax and other cities in the northeastern United States and in Canada, according to new research led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). Millions of people could be displaced in the process.

An estimate of three feet rise in the sea level is predicted over the next century that could wreak havoc around the world if it comes to pass. Moreover, warmer water temperatures could shift ocean currents. As more ice melts, sea level increases and in turn absorb more of the sun's heat, leading more snow and ice to melt.
What Causes the Greenhouse Effect?

Greenhouse gases such as water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone and methane regulates our climate by trapping heat and holding it in a kind of warm-air blanket that surrounds the planet.  This is called the 'greenhouse effect' phenomenon.

How Humans Contribute to the Greenhouse Effect?

Human activities distort and accelerate the natural process by creating more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere than necessary.

  • Burning natural gas, coal and oil including gasoline increase the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere.
  • Deforestation. Trees use carbon dioxide which helps create optimal balance of gases in the atmosphere. Due to deforestation, we have fewer trees to perform this critical function.
  • Farming practices increase levels of methane and nitrous gases.
  • Factories produce long lasting industrial gases.
  • Population growth. People use fossil fuel for heat, transportation among others. As more farming occurs to feed millions of people, more greenhouse gases enter the atmosphere.

To sum it all up, more greenhouse gases would mean more infrared radiation trapped in the atmosphere which gradually increase the temperature of the Earth's surface and the air in the lower atmosphere.

The Impact Of The Solar Storm

Photo Image NASA
The sun is predicted to reach its maximum activity in a few years. Scientists believe that our planet will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy caused by the charged particles of the solar flare. This may take place sometime late 2013 or early 2014.

This event will greatly impact our lives due to our heavy reliance on electronic devices which are pretty much sensitive to magnetic energy. What's alarming is the huge possibility of the overheating of the National power grids. Navigation devices and major satellites could stop working, air travel will be severely disrupted and it could damage everything such as hospital equipments, banking systems, air traffic control devices, home computers, mobile phones and everything electronic including electricity power.  Dr. Fisher, director of Nasa's Heliophysics division said these flares will change the magnetic field on the earth due to the effect of the solar flare activity.

A severe economic impact is being thought of. But how severe it's gonna be, no one can really tell.

According to The Telegraph news. "Britain could face widespread power blackouts and be left without critical communication signals for long periods of time, after the earth is hit by a once-in-a-generation "space storm". Nasa Warned.

Sun Recently Unleashed Solar Flare - August 5

The sun unleashed a massive solar flare last Thursday. The coronal mass ejection (CME) registered M9.3 on the Ritcher scale of flares, about the highest level in the "medium" category. A CME this enormous was never seen before, said astrophysicist Philip Chamberlain of NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
The Earth's magnetosphere is the reqion around our planet that's being controlled by a magnetic field. If the sun's charged particles known as the solar storm reaches our planet, this can create  extra currents on our magnetic field and can infiltrate high-voltage transmission lines. This can cause overheating of transformers and possible burn out.

What can cause global radio blackouts is the larger flares that fall into the category "X" if one of them reaches Earth.

The sun is at the peak of the 11-year solar cycle and the danger it brings is becoming critical.Magnetic messiness is said to peak around in late 2013 or early 2014. Chamberlain said that extreme flares will probably be seen every couple of months instead of years.

If the powerful flares reaches Earth, the charged particles will pound satellite components and may potentially cripple the system.

“Space weather really is everybody’s business, and the sun has an activity cycle very much like the hurricane season,” Bogdan said. “The sun’s season is about 12 years long, and we’re just coming up to the next maximum in solar activity, so we expect to be seeing more of these storms coming from the sun over the next three to five years.” Moreover, Bogdan also said that if the current wave is strong enough the increasing frequency of solar storms could induce an Aurora that would be visible in the mainland United States.
The M9-class solar flare of August 4th produced a burst of shortwave static so powerful that receivers on Earth picked it up after sunset. “A RadioJove observer in Florida recorded the burst when the sun was 38 degrees below the horizon,” reports amateur radio astronomer Thomas Ashcraft. Ashcraft’s own radio telescope in New Mexico recorded the event 1 hour and 54 minutes after sunset. “To my knowledge, receptions like this are very rare,” says Ashcraft. -Space Weather
