Three Days of Darkness
According to Padre Pio
We have touched upon the Three Days of Darkness in a document that we
published on-line in the year 2000 (1). The following is a
detailed description of the warning that Padre Pio is said to have
received from Our Lord Jesus Christ. We have no doubt about the truth
of this account, although
we cannot vouch for the accuracy of the translation.
We have decided to publish it since it will be instrumental in
understanding what miguel de Portugal published (2) about the mechanism of this
event. Some recommendations like: "Keep
your windows well-covered. Do not look out." may sound
foolish but, now that we understand how it will take place, they are
not foolish at all. Enough said!
The following was excerpted from the translation of a copy of a
personal letter, written by Padre Pio (died 1968, canonized 2002)
and addressed to the Commission of Heroldsbach appointed by the
Vatican. The letter testifies to the truth and reality of the
revelations given by Our Lord to Padre Pio, a Capuchin priest who bore
the stigmata. (3)
In the following visions of Jesus experienced by Padre Pio are
warnings which seem to be referring to the Three Days of Darkness.
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."
January 23, 1950: Jesus
to Padre Pio
"Pray! Make reparation! Be fervent and practice
mortification. Great things are at stake! Pray! Men are
running toward the abyss of Hell in great rejoicing and merry-making,
as though they were going to a masquerade ball or the wedding feast of
the devil himself! Assist Me in the salvation of souls. The
measure of sin is filled! The day of revenge, with its terrifying
happenings is near - nearer then you can imagine! And the
world is sleeping in false security! The Divine Judgment shall
strike them like a thunderbolt! These Godless and wicked people shall
be destroyed without mercy, as were the inhabitants of Sodom and
Gomorra of old. Yes, I tell you their wickedness was not as great as
that of our human race today!"
January 28, 1950: Jesus
to Padre Pio
"Keep your windows well-covered. Do not look out. Light a
blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the Rosary. Read
spiritual books. Make acts of Spiritual Communion, also acts of
love, which are so pleasing to Us. Pray with outstretched arms,
or prostrate on the ground, in order that many souls may be
saved. Do not go outside the house. Provide yourself with
sufficient food. The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain
of fire shall make people tremble with fear. Have courage!
I am in the midst of you."
February 7, 1950: Jesus
to Padre Pio
"Take care of the animals during these days. I am the creator and
preserver of animals as well as man. I shall give you a few signs
beforehand, at which time you should place more food before them.
I will preserve the property of the elect, including the animals, for
they shall be in need of sustenance afterwards as well. Let no
one go across the yard, even to feed the animals - he who steps outside
will perish! Cover your windows carefully. My elect shall
not see My wrath. Have confidence in Me, and I will be your
protection. Your confidence obliges Me to come to your aid."
"Hurricanes of fire will pour forth from the clouds and spread over the
entire earth! Storms, bad weather, thunderbolts and earthquakes
will cover the earth for two days. An uninterrupted rain of fire
will take place! It will begin during a very cold night. All this is to
prove that God is the Master of Creation. Those who hope in Me, and
believe in My words, have nothing to fear because I will not forsake
them, nor those who spread My message. No harm will come to those
who are in the state of grace and who seek My Mother's protection."
"That you may be prepared for these visitations, I will give you the
following signs and instructions: The night will be very cold.
The wind will roar. After a time thunderbolts will be
heard. Lock all the doors and windows. Talk to no one
outside the house. Kneel down before a crucifix, be sorry for
your sins, and beg My Mother's protection. Do not look during the
earthquake, because the anger of God is holy!" Jesus does not want us
to behold the anger of God, because God's anger must be contemplated
with fear and trembling.
"Those who disregard this advice will be killed instantly. The
wind will carry with it poisonous gases which will be diffused over the
entire earth. Those who suffer and die innocently will be martyrs
and they will be with Me in My Kingdom. Satan will appear to have
triumphed. But in three nights, the earthquake and fire will
cease. On the following day the sun will shine again, angels will
descend from Heaven and will spread the spirit of peace over the
earth. A feeling of immeasurable gratitude will take possession
of those who survive this most terrible ordeal, the impending
punishment, with which God will visit the earth since creation."
"I have chosen souls in other countries too, such as Belgium,
Switzerland, Spain, who have received these revelations so that other
countries also may be prepared. Pray the Rosary, but pray it
that your prayers may reach Heaven. Soon a more terrible
catastrophe shall come upon the entire world, such as never before has
been witnessed, a terrible chastisement never before experienced!
How unconcerned men are regarding these things! Which shall so
soon come upon them, contrary to all expectations. How
indifferent they are in preparing themselves for these unheard of
events, through which they will have to pass so shortly! The
weight of divine justice has reached the earth! The wrath of My
Father shall be poured out over the entire world! I am again
warning the world through your instrumentality, as I have so often done
"This catastrophe shall come upon the earth like a flash of
lightning! At which moment the light of the morning sun shall be
replaced by black darkness! No one shall leave the house or look
out a window from that moment on. I Myself shall come amidst
thunder and lightning. The wicked shall behold My Divine Heart.
There shall be great confusion because of this utter darkness in which
the entire earth shall be enveloped, and many, many shall die from fear
"On that day, as soon as complete darkness has set in, no one shall
leave the house or look from out of the window. The darkness
shall last a day and a night followed by another day and night, and
another day - but on the night following, the stars will shine again,
and on the next morning the sun shall rise again, and it will be
springtime! In the days of darkness, My elect shall not sleep, as
did the disciples in the Garden of Olives. They shall pray
incessantly, and they shall not be disappointed in Me. I shall
gather My elect. Hell will believe itself to be in possession of
the entire earth, but I shall reclaim it."
