#094. prints Verses Apoc12:1-17.

Great sign appeared a Woman (being with child) clothed with the Sun and the Moon at her feet.

#095. (Apoc12:1) He speaks in the past. (all past tense). A vision that has already happened. He says: An a great sign appeared in heaven; a woman clothed etc. A vision for all the angels of God’s command. A mirror image of God’s handiwork in creating Human nature. As he had already revealed the hypostatic union Of the Word. The sign an assurance for the good angels and confusion for the bad. They were not to be punished without remission (like the angels), but furnished with salutary medicine and remedy by this wonderful sign. My Son shall be the restorer of friendship and the Pacifier of my justice; He shall open the way to felicity , which sin would close.

#096. He made the angels understand that now through Christ and his Mother the grace lost by the apostate angels from rebellion, He would divert to men. Much of the mysteries and sacraments of the incarnation and the Church Militant were made know to them by this sign “ A woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet on her head a crown of 12 stars. The Angels receive their commission to watch over defend them against enemies and lead them to eternal felicity.

#097. For the obedient angels a great joy, for the fallen Angels a great torment.

#098. The sun mentioned in the clothing represents the Woman is the true Sun of Justice. The angels understood this to mean that the Most High would overshadow and defend her with his invincible right hand. The sun represents light and grace. The moon represents darkness, beneath her feet as she conquered for all eternity. Lucifer could not touch or reach or gain advantage over Her. The image for the bad angels was meant to cause fear when she came into existence.

#099. The “crown of 12 stars,” all her virtues. But the mystery reference to 12 tribes of Israel which all the elect are designated in chapter 7 of the Apocalypse, since the gifts grace and virtues a crown of 12 stars was placed around her head.

#100. (Apoc12:2)And being with child” This woman was selected to be a mother for his Only begotten. She is shown to the angels as a resting place for the Trinity. For on account of their inseparable union and co-existence, ALL THREE Persons was present wherever any one of them was present., although only the Word assumed the human flesh, and with him alone was she pregnant.. (Jn12:32)

#101. “She cried travailing in birth” It was heard then from the rising to the setting sun (Jn12:32); (Rom 10:18) and from the farthest North to farthest South. her voice of that Woman who gave birth to the Word of the eternal Father.

#102. And was in pain to be delivered.” The Evangelist does not say bodily pain, as the pain was So far then to be a great sorrow that her Son was to die a victim for the satisfaction of the sins of the world. Thus the “cry foreshadows her being deprived of the presence of Her Treasure, after she issued from her Womb. He was exclusively her Son. 

#103. (Apoc12:3) And there was seen another sign in the heaven; and behold a great red dragon having 7 heads, 10 horns, and on his head were 7 diadems and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to earth.” This was the punishment of Lucifer and his allies; once uttering the blasphemies against the woman with child (the Word Incarnate), he was astonished to find himself visibly changed from a beautiful angelic form into a fierce and horrid dragon, with seven heads that led his 7 legions of now demons, all those that followed that fell with him. To each principality he commanded them to sin on their own account by taking leadership of the 7 mortal sins, known as Capital sins. For in these 7 contain all the other sins that rise up against God. (pride, envy, avarice, anger, luxury, intemperance, and sloth) These are the 7 diadems in Lucifer’s crown. To all of them were apportioned the punishment and the pains, which corresponded to their malice and to share which they had in originating these 7 capital sins.

#104. The ten horns were triumphs of the inequity and malice of the dragon, and the vain and arrogant glorification and exaltation which he attributed to himself in the execution of his wickedness. In his depraved arrogance he offered to the unhappy angels his malicious and poisonous friendship and his counterfeit principalities, commanderships and rewards. These promises full of bestial ignorance and error, were the tail with which the dragon drew after him the 3rd part of the stars (angels) of heaven. These angels were the stars and IF they would have persevered, they would have shone with the rest of the angels and the just, like the sun through the perpetual eternities. (Dan12:3)But they that are learned shall shine as the brightness of the firmament: and they that instruct many to justice, as stars for all eternity.” But the punishment they merited drew them down to earth of their unhappiness into its very center, which is hell, where they will for all eternity be deprived of light and happiness .(Jude6)And the angels who kept not their principality, but forsook their own habitation, he hath reserved under darkness in everlasting chains, unto the judgment of the great day .  

#105. (Apoc12:4)And the dragon stood before the Woman, who was ready to be delivered; that when She should be delivered, he might devour her son,” The pride of Lucifer was boundless, he pretended to place his throne on high, with boasting he spoke in the presence of the Woman symbolized in the heavenly sign: This Son, which the Woman shall bring forth is of lower Nature than mine. “I shall devour Him and Destroy Him,” I shall lead my followers against Him. I shall spread my doctrines against His decrees and against His laws. I will wage perpetual war and contradiction against him. But the answer of the Most High Lord was, ”that this Woman was to bring forth a Man-child, who is to reign over nations with an iron rod. “this Man, shall not only be my Son of that Woman but He shall be my Son True God, and true man, gifted with power to overcome thy pride and crush thy head. He will be to thee and to all those who hear follow thee a powerful judge, who shall rule with a rod of iron and bring to naught all thy vain and aspiring thoughts. This Son shall be taken up to my throne, where He will be seated at my right hand as Judge, and will place his enemies for a footstool beneath his feet in order to triumph over them. (Ps2:9) “Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, and shalt break them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” He will be rewarded as the Just Man, who, being at the same time, true God, has done much for His creatures; all shall know him reverence and honor (Ps109:1)O God, be not thou silent in thy praise: for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful man is opened against me .” But thou as the most unhappy, shalt know what is the day of the wrath of the ALL-powerful (Sophan1:14). “This Woman too, shall be placed in solitude, where She will have a place assigned by Me”(Apoc12:6) This solitude, to which the Woman fled is the position which Our Great Queen holds, as being Only and Alone, unsurpassed in sanctity and exempt from all sin. For she being the same nature as mortals, far excelled the angels in Grace Merits and Gifts attained in common with them. Thus, She who was the only one and without compare among creatures, fled and was placed in a solitude exalted above all the rest. This solitude was far removed from all sin that the dragon could not even attain sight of it, nor could he from the time of her Conception discern anything of Her. The Most High placed Her alone as the Only one in the world, who had intercourse with, and never was in subordination to the serpent. On the contrary, with solemn promise and assurance He affirmed and decreed: “ This Woman, from the first instant of her existence, shall be my Only One, chosen for Myself; I EXEMPT Her even from the jurisdiction of her enemies and I will assign to Her a position of Grace most eminent and incomparable, in order that there She may be nourished one thousand two hundred and sixty days. (Apoc12:6) That number of days the Queen was to remain in an interior and spiritual state of most exalted and extraordinary graces, which were to be more memorable and wonderful. {this happened in the last years of her life, as, with the help of God, I will relate in its place}. In that state, She was nourished in such a divine manner, that our understanding will never be able to grasp it. Because thee graces were in a certain measure the END toward which others of the life of the Queen of heaven were ordained, their culmination, the Evangelist makes special mention of them.
