By examining the prophecies of the Three Days of Darkness, we can begin to understand what happens and what conditions will be like during this period. Also we are able to see from the descriptions of these Three Days of Darkness that the Comet of the Chastisement passing by the Earth in some way, the Sun’s nova (both these events caused by a tremendous galactic energy wave) , and the Earth quaking and changing orbit are all apparently simultaneous or at least overlapping events. As noted before, both the Comet of the Chastisement and the Sun’s nova contribute to the Three Days of Darkness. We can see from these descriptions what the Earth will be like during and immediately after these Three Days of Darkness.
It should also be pointed out that the Three Days of Darkness, much like the thousand years of peace, are more of a relative term symbolic of a certain period of time, not necessarily an exact 72 hour period of time. The period of darkness could take three, four, or more days to clear before the atmosphere gets back to normal. The Earth at first will be a dismal place but the atmosphere will have completely changed and be renewed.
Part of the Necedah Secret relates to the coming days of darkness. It says when the Sun novas (pulses and explodes) outward, “your Earth will fall into darkness because of the particles bursting away; it will darken and you will have from three to four days of darkness. And when this falls upon your ozone (the ozone layer) will come down upon the Earth and if you people go outside your homes during that period you will die … it will be poison, it will burst your lungs. There are some that might survive, depending on the individual and how much they consume. Our best advice for you at that time would be stay in your homes – seal all cracks in your homes. Have water in your homes because your electricity will not work. Remember, electricity will not work!                     We cannot tell you here when God the Father in Heaven will permit this … when this will take place. But that it will take place, Sister Mary Ann, you can rest assured of that.” (Necedah, May 31, 1977, Queenship of Mary).
Other prophecies warn of the Three Days of Darkness. Stigmatist Marie Julie Jahenny of La Fraudais, France was given this: “There will come three days of continued darkness. The blessed candles of wax alone will give light during the horrid darkness. One candle will last for three days, but in the houses of the godless they will not give light. During those three days the demons will appear in abominable and horrid forms; they will make the air resound with shocking blasphemies.
“The lightning will penetrate the homes, but will not extinguish the light of the blessed candles; neither wind nor storm nor earthquake will extinguish it. Red clouds like blood will pass in the sky, the crash of thunder will make the Earth tremble; lightning will flash through the streets at an unusual time of the year; the Earth will tremble to its foundations; the ocean will cast its foaming waves over the land, the Earth will be changed into an immense cemetery; the corpses of the wicked and the just will cover the face of the Earth.”

(Obviously, from this description, the Earth is undergoing a polar shift during the Three Days of Darkness, as well as a change in orbit).
“The famine that will follow will be great. All vegetation will be destroyed as well as three fourths of the human race. The crisis will come all of a sudden and the Chastisement will be world-wide.”

To Blessed Anna Maria Taiga: “Nothing will be visible and the air will be laden with pestilence, which will claim principally but not exclusively the enemies of religion… He who out of curiosity opens his window to look out or leave his house will fall dead on the spot.”
There is an incredible amount of revelation concerning the Three Days of Darkness. A comet passing by the Earth causing a considerable amount of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions seems to bring on the darkness and this darkness is then increased and prolonged by the Sun’s nova as indicated in the Necedah Secret. La Salette mentions “The Earth … will have been in a continual series of evolutions for three days.” An Ecuador mystic, Patricia Talbut was told in the late 1980s that the Earth would go out of its orbit for three days.
One very important and truthful prophecy of the coming Three Days of Darkness is that of Saint Padre Pio given in 1950. It is taken from a translation of Padre Pio’s personal letter to the Commission of Heroldsbach that was appointed by the Vatican. This establishes and testifies to the truth and reality of these revelations given by Our Lord, Jesus Christ. (Padre Pio was a Capuchin priest in Italy who bore the stigmata).

There are two revelations given: one on January 28, 1950, and the other on February 7, 1950.
January 28, 1950:
“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:
“Take care of the animals during these days. I am the Creator and Preserver of all 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.
“The hour of My coming is near! But I will show mercy. A most dreadful punishment will bear witness to the times. My angels, who are to be the executioners of this work, are ready with their pointed swords! They will take special care to annihilate all those who mocked Me and would not believe in My revelations.

“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 triumph! But after 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 terrible ordeal – the impending punishment – with which God has visited 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 much during this Holy Year of 1950. Pray the Rosary, but pray it well, so 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! The war of 1950 shall be the introduction of these things.
“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 the Divine balance 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 heretofore.
“The sins of men have multiplied beyond measure: Irreverence in Church, sinful pride committed in sham religious activities, lack of true brotherly love, indecency in dress, especially at summer seasons… The world is filled with iniquity.
“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 of 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 and despair.
“Those who shall fight for My cause shall receive grace from My Divine Heart; and the cry: ‘WHO IS LIKE UNTO GOD!’ shall serve as a means of protection to many. However, many shall burn in the open fields like withered grass! The godless shall be annihilated, so that afterwards the just shall be able to stand afresh.
“On the day, as soon as complete darkness has set in, no one shall leave the house or look from out the window. The darkness shall last a day and a night, followed by another day and a 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!
“Do you, perhaps, think that I would permit My Father to have such terrible chastisements come upon the world, if the world would turn from iniquity to justice? But because of My great love, these afflictions shall be permitted to come upon man. Although many shall curse Me, yet thousands of souls shall be saved through them. No human understanding can fathom the depth of My love!
“Pray! Pray! I desire your prayers. My dear Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Elizabeth, Saint Conrad, Saint Michael, Saint Peter, the Little Therese, your Holy Angels, shall be your intercessors. Implore their aid! Be courageous soldiers of Christ! At the return of light, let everyone give thanks to the Holy Trinity for Their protection! The devastation shall be very great! But I, Your God, will have purified the Earth. I am with you. Have confidence!”

So ends these very complete revelations given through Saint Padre Pio on the Three Days of Darkness that not only thoroughly describe this time period but what precautions and preparations should be planned for. How we should conduct ourselves, especially in a spiritual manner during this time is also spoken of. Note as well, the reference to “other chosen souls” in other countries who will be instruments to prepare End Times Christians in those areas for the coming dark days.
This prophecy as well as some others presented here, give a perfect description of what takes place as the Comet of the Chastisement passes by: The thunderbolts (being discharged between the Earth and the passing comet as well as between disturbances on the Earth itself); the warnings to stay indoors and to seal all doors and windows, etc. (due to poisonous gases from the tail of the comet as it passes by); the “rain of fire” and the “hurricane of fire” are apt descriptions of the hail of petroleum-permeated rock debris from the comet’s tail as well as fire from possibly the Sun’s nova during this purifying event.
The following prophecies give further insights and details of this period of darkness as well as a bit on what the Earth will be like in the Aftermath that immediately follows.
Julka (Julia) Zagreb, Yugoslavia describes visions she had from 1960 to 1966: “To begin with, a strong wind will come from the south. It will seize upon the whole globe and cause dreadful storms. After this about ten claps of thunder at once will strike the Earth with such force that it will shudder throughout. This is a sign that the Great Tribulation and the Black Darkness are beginning. These will last three days and three nights. On this account people should go into their houses, close them up well, darken the windows, bless themselves and the house with holy water, and light blessed candles. Outside such dreadful things will be happening, that those who venture to look out will die. All the devils will be let loose on Earth, so that they can destroy their prey themselves.
“The demons will howl upon the Earth and call many; in order to destroy them. They will imitate the voices of relations and acquaintances, who have not reached a safe place. Once the horror commences, do not open your door to anyone at all!
“In many places several people will gather together in fear. From the same group, some will perish, others remain alive for this day and moment, and for that darkness, many will have prepared the blessed candles, but they will not burn, if the people have not lived in accordance with My Commandments, others will even be unable to light them for fear. But for those who believe, although they have but a stub of the blessed candle, it will burn for these three days and nights without going out. Some people will fall into a deep sleep granted by Me, as not to see what is happening on the Earth. All the buildings on Earth will collapse, and only here and there will remain a simple modest little house, in which the light of a candle will glimmer. In many places, the heaps of corpses will be so great, that no one will be able to make a passage through them, on account of these bodies, there will not be anyone to bury them.”

On November 12, 1975, God the Father told Julka, “The whole Earth will be covered by a great fire and will be infertile for some time for those who survive it…”
The aftermath upon the Earth during the later part of the Three Days of Darkness will be far worse than after the fiercest battle ever waged in history. It will be a very dismal and dark period, the darkest just before the dawning of the New Era of Peace. The living will envy the dead as given in the Necedah revelations and other prophecies. But the darkness will lift and the results of the Purification will be evident in a renewed Earth with a strengthened aurora and a reestablished canopy manifest in its atmosphere.
Though the main event is a few years off, it would do well to prepare well in advance with a small altar in one’s home with a Bible, prayer books, and 100 percent beeswax candles plus holy water, blessed salt and other sacramentals. Your home should be well stocked with blankets, warm clothing, food and water (a hand pump in the basement would be good) plus have your house well sealed in advance of the Three Dark Days.
We should not be fearful nor sensationalistic about this but common sense and down-to-earth, putting much into preparation and penance and prayer. Our protection will be in our Lord Jesus Christ and His Mother Mary through Their Legions of Angels that will watch over and protect us if we are found worthy of it.
