THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS AND OTHER CALAMITIES
FIRST ...... be in the STATE OF GRACE!
Prepare supplies and items necessary to survive the Three Days and Afterwards
Following are some natural and supernatural remedies to use against the calamities, that are menacing the world as revealed to Marie-Julie by our Lord and the Blessed Virgin.
3. FOR ANIMALS: One must put around their necks a St. Benedict medal. Our Lady warned all people to wear a St. Benedict medal.
5. GREAT STORMS: The following prayer to the Cross, revealed by Our Lord, to be recited: "O, Crux Ave, Spes Unica. Et Verbum Caro Factum est. O, Jesu Christe, Victor Mortis, Salva Nos." "O, Cross, Our only Hope, We Greet You, and the Word has become Flesh. O Jesus, Conqueror of death, Save us."
7. UNKNOWN DISEASES (Given during an ecstacy) : A medal of My Divine Heart, and a medal upon which is traced the Adorable Cross. You will steep into a glass of water the two images, be it made of cardboard or metal. You will drink this water that is twice blessed and twice purified. One drop only in your food, one little drop, will suffice to drive away not the scourge, but the scourges of My justice. (The Miraculous Medal alone, fulfills the conditions required). You will give a drop of this water to the poor souls touched by the scourge of unknown diseases, those which attack the heart, the spirit, the word.
9. EPIDEMICS or EPIZOÖTICS: [epizootiology is the science dealing with the character, ecology, and causes of animal diseases. ed.cj] The Lord gives to the great ST. BENEDICT [PATRON SAINT OF EUROPE! ed.cj] the power to alleviate this great calamity. A respectful procession of the statue, made without any fear or dread, may arrest this calamity.
10. EARTHLY AND CELESTIAL FIRE: The Sacred Heart of Jesus: The heat will be terrible ... a sign of the Cross made with holy water will diminish the heat and drive away the sparks. You will kiss five times small indulgenced crosses ... small crosses applied to the five wounds of Jesus Crucified on a holy image. From such protection may benefit souls, poor sinners, invoking My Immaculate Mother, Mother of Salvation, Refuge and Reconciliation of sinners.
13. THE MODE OF USING THE HAWTHORN AS GIVEN BY OUR BLESSED MOTHER: "There will be a grave illness which human science will not be able to alleviate. This illness will attack firstly the heart, then the spirit, and at the same time, the tongue. It will be horrible. The heat accompanying it will be a devouring fire insupportable and so intense that the members of the body affected will be red -- an unendurable fiery red. At the end of seven days this disease, sown like a seed in the field (incubation period) will spread everywhere rapidly and make great progress." "My children, here is the ONLY remedy which could save you. You are familiar with the Hawthorn which grows practically in all hedges. The leaves of the Hawthorn, not the wood, can arrest the progress of this disease." "You will gather the leaves, not the wood. Even dry, they will keep their efficacy. You will put them into boiling water and leave them there for 14 minutes, covering the receptacle so that the steam remains therein. At the onset of this disease, one must use this remedy three times a day." "This disease will produce a continual vomiting and nausea. If the remedy is taken too late, the part of the body affected will become black and in the black there will be seen a sort of pale, yellow streak."

ST JOHN'S WORT, HYPERICUM PERFORATUM, IS NOT THE SAME PLANT AS GROUND-IVY, GLECHOMA HEDERACEA
"Glechoma is sometimes confused with common mallow or Malva neglecta, which also has round, lobed leaves; but mallow leaves are attached to the stem at the back of a rounded leaf, where ground ivy has square stems and leaves which are attached in the center of the leaf, more prominent rounded lobes on their edges, attach to the stems in an opposite arrangement, and have a hairy upper surface. In addition, mallow and other creeping plants sometimes confused with ground ivy do not spread from nodes on stems. In addition, ground ivy emits a distinctive odor when damaged, being a member of the mint family.
"TRADITIONAL MEDICINE Glechoma hederacea has been used in the traditional medicine of Europe going back thousands of years. Galen recommends the plant to treat inflammation of the eyes. John Gerard, an English herbalist, recommended the plant to treat tinnitus, as well as a "diuretic, astringent, tonic and gentle stimulant. Useful in kidney diseases and for indigestion." It has also been used as a "lung herb". Other traditional uses include as an expectorant, astringent, and to treat bronchitis. The essential oil of the plant has been used for centuries as a general tonic for colds and coughs, and to relieve congestion of the mucous membranes ...
"SAFETY Although it has been used as a salad green and in herbal medicines for thousands of years, the safety of Glechoma hederacea has not been established scientifically, and THERE IS SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO WARRANT CAUTION WITH ITS USE. Glechoma hederacea is toxic to cattle and horses. It is known to contain terpenoids; terpene-rich volatile oils are known to irritate the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys. The volatile oil also contains pulegone, a chemical also occurring in pennyroyal that is a known irritant, toxic to the liver, and ALSO AN ABORTIFACIENT. The total yield of volatile oil in Glechoma is less than 1/30th the concentration that of pennyroyal ..."
ST JOHN'S WORT
"Although Hypericum perforatum is grown commercially in some regions of south east Europe, it is listed as a noxious weed in more than twenty countries and has introduced populations in South and North America, India, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa. In pastures, St John’s wort acts as both a toxic and invasive weed. It replaces native plant communities and forage vegetation to the dominating extent of making productive land nonviable or becoming an invasive species in natural habitats and ecosystems. Ingestion by livestock can cause photosensitization, central nervous system depression, spontaneous abortion, and can lead to death. Effective herbicides for control of Hypericum include 2,4-D, picloram, and glyphosate. In western North America three beetles Chrysolina quadrigemina, Chrysolina hyperici and Agrilus hyperici have been introduced as biocontrol agents.
