Sr. Agnes Sasagawa received a private revelation, apparently from her guardian angel, on October 6, 2019—the very day the Amazon Synod opened.

News is coming in about a private revelation received by Sr. Agnes Sasagawa on October 6, the day the Amazon synod opened. Apparently this message was given by her guardian angel. Recall that in October of 1973, Sr. Agnes received a series of messages at Akita Japan from the Blessed Mother. Now, on the opening day of the Amazon Synod, Sr. Agnes receives another message.
Given the fact that Pachamama idol worship was tolerated, in some ways perhaps deliberately encouraged, in the very heart of the Church at the Vatican during the synod, both the date of this private revelation and its message is of extreme relevance. Many are noting that the incident at the Vatican was the “golden calf” moment, recalling the OT account of idolatry that took place among the Israelites when Moses had gone up the mountain to receive the tablets of the Decalogue, only to return to find Aaron and the people worshipping a golden calf (see Ex 32).
As Moses is receiving God’s sacred law on Mount Sinai, written in stone by the very hand of God, the Israelites below that same mountain intentionally abandon God, trading worship of the Creator for worship of a golden calf. They deliberately break the primary precept of the Decalogue, which is: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image” (Ex 20:2-4).
The First Commandment not only forbids idolatry. It obligates people to love God above all things. The worship of any created thing in God’s place is an abomination. The Pachamama worship that took place at the Vatican is inexcusable. It represented a visible manifestation of loss of faith and an acceptance of rebellion against God and his Truth.
When Moses was still up on the mountain, God informed him that the people had turned away from him and sacrificed to idols. In God’s anger, he gave this warning:
“I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people; now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them” (Ex 32:9-10).
When Moses returned and saw the golden calf, his anger “burned hot” as righteous anger. He threw the tablets of stone onto the ground and broke them. He ground the golden calf into powder, “scattered it upon the water, and made the people of Israel drink it” (Ex 32:19-20).
Now we have idol worship being tolerated, perhaps in some ways encouraged at the Vatican. And we have another private revelation to Sr. Agnes. What’s the connection? Why is this second revelation so serious?
To answer these questions, let’s take a look at the private revelations Sr. Agnes received in 1973, in Akita Japan. To begin, she received this message from the Blessed Mother:
“Many men in this world afflict the Lord. I desire souls to console Him to soften the anger of the Heavenly Father. I wish, with my Son, for souls who will repair by their suffering and their poverty for the sinners and ingrates.“
Then, on October 13, 1973, which happens to be the anniversary of the Virgin Mary’s apparition at Fatima and the Miracle of the Sun, Sr. Agnes received this message:
“As I told you, 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, 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 priests.
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres… churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sorrow. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.“
As reported by EWTN radio, on the opening day of the Amazon Synod, Sr. Agnes received another private revelation. It seems this revelation was given by her guardian angel or perhaps some other angel. Here’s the focal point of the message, translated into English:
“Cover in ashes, and please pray the Penitential Rosary every day.” (1)
In other words, do penance in reparation for the sins of humankind. Pray the Rosary every day. Pray it for the Pope, bishops and priests. Pray it in atonement for the sins of mankind.
In 1973, the Virgin Mary warned that the work of the devil would infiltrate into the Church. Cardinals will turn against cardinals, bishops against bishops. The Church will be filled with those who accept compromises, who corrupt the gospel and disfigure the truth.
And, on the opening day of the Amazon Synod, Sr. Agnes is told: “Cover in ashes, and please pray the Penitential Rosary every day.” The timing and context of this messages cannot be coincidental.
To “cover in ashes” most likely represents acts of penance in reparation for the atrocities of the age, including those going on in the Church. Many of these atrocities involve grave sexual sins. Sins against marriage and family, sins against the sixth commandment. These sins also include idolatry, the gravest of them all because it often manifests in an open, public, and deliberate display of rejection of God.
On 13 July at Fatima the Blessed Mother gave the solution to stay the hand of God:
“Continue to say the Rosary every day in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary, to obtain the peace of the world and the end of the war, because only she can obtain it.”
She prophesied that, if men do not repent of their sins, a bloody war would break out during the reign of Pope Pius XI. Since men did not repent nor pray in sufficient numbers, World War II began.
If men refuse to repent, if we do not arm ourselves with the Rosary as a weapon against evil, if we fail to fast and pray in reparation for the sins of the present age, divine punishment will follow. The Mother of God warned that it will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good and the bad. Neither priests nor faithful will be spared. “The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead.”
It’s as if the hand of God is this moment about to fall. Heaven is warning us. Crying out. Pleading with us to stop sinning. Shouting for repentance before it is too late.
The question is, will people listen?
