Father Gobbi is a priest in the Catholic Church. On May 8th of 1972, Don Stefano Gobbi was taking part in a pilgrimage to Fatima. He was praying in the Chapel of the Apparitions when he felt an interior force urge him to have confidence in the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This event led to the formation of the Marian Movement of Priests. Since then Father Gobbi believes he is receiving messages from the Blessed Mother in the form of interior locutions. These type of messages are an inner knowing inspired from Heaven, neither a voice nor a vision.
Among the many messages received since July 1973 are numerous references to end-time prophecy. Many of the interpretations of the elements match what is presented in the book Don't Worry... Be Faithful. One, though, is very different. The interpretation of the removal of the daily sacrifice. According to the Apparitions of the Blessed Mother of Jesus, the Eucharist of the Catholic Church is the sacrifice, the pure oblation, that is offered in the mass everyday throughout the world. Sometime in the future a great schism will arise in the church and one branch will except the Protestant view of the Eucharist, that it is a remembrance and not an actual sacrifice. In the view presented by the Apparitions, this downgrading of the status of the Eucharist is the removal of the daily sacrifice and will thereby fulfill prophecy. One should be cautious of this view.
Presented here are messages through Father Gobbi which interpret the end-time prophetic elements. Notice how the time elements are taken literally while many of the symbols are interpreted.

- A chastisement worse than the flood is about to come upon this
and perverted humanity. Fire will descend from Heaven and this will be
the sign that the justice of God has as of now fixed the hour of
His great manifestation. ... Even now, that which I predicted at Fatima
and that which I have revealed here in the third message confided to a
little daughter of mine is in the process of being accomplished. And
even for the Church the moment of its great trail has come, because the
man of iniquity will establish himself within it and the abomination
of desolation will enter into the holy temple of God.

- The Holy Spirit will come, to establish the glorious reign

all consciences. Every person will see himself in the burning fire of
Truth. It will be like a judgment in miniature. And then Jesus Christ
bring his glorious reign in the world.

world, has always been an instrument of amplification, ... For this
God communicated his will to his people by means of ten horns which

all humanity to do without God, to the denial of God, and therefore
the error of atheism, the aim of Masonry is not to deny God, but to
Him. ... The greatest blasphemy is that of denying the worship due God
alone by giving it to creatures and to Satan himself. ... Each Masonic
lodge has the task of making a different divinity adored
.[Please note: No beast colored black is mentioned in Revelation. The Apparitions have added the dimension black to this beast. This label of black was used earlier on June 29, 1983. In my view, this beast represents the rise of the end-time government of the Antichrist.]

The lamb, in holy scripture, has always been a symbol of sacrifice. ...
The beast has on its head two horns like those of a lamb. To
symbol of the sacrifice there is intimately connected that of the

to indicate the fullness of their priesthood. The black beast like a

[Anniversary of the First Apparition at Fatima]
- ... my Pope, John Paul II, ... Today I confirm for you
is the Pope of my secret; the Pope about whom I spoke to the children
the apparitions; ... When this Pope will have completed the task which
Jesus has entrusted to him and I will come down from heaven to receive
his sacrifice, all of you will be cloaked in a dense darkness of

by him who sets himself against Christ, that is, the Antichrist. He
enter into the holy temple of God and will sit on his throne, and have
himself adored as God. 'This one will oppose and exalt himself against
everything that men adore and call God. ...' (2 Thes 2,4.9) ... 'One

horrible abomination is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred

the pure oblation which is offered to the Lord everywhere, from the
of the sun to its going down. The sacrifice of the Mass renews that
was accomplished by Jesus on Calvary.
By accepting the protestant doctrine, people will hold that the Mass is not a sacrifice but only a sacred meal, that is to say, a remembrance of that which Jesus did at His Last Supper. And thus, the celebration of Holy Mass will be suppressed. In this abolition of the daily sacrifice consists the horrible sacrilege accomplished by the Antichrist, which will last about 3½ years, namely, 1,290 days. The fifth sign consists in extraordinary phenomena, ... sun ... moon ... stars ... [are darkened]
