The Power of the Two Marios

Two Jesuit-educated technocrats, Mario Draghi and Mario Monti, hold sway amid Europe’s crisis.

It was hardly headline news outside of Europe, yet the most recent European Union summit was one of the most historic and prophetically significant for some time.

“A new treaty to impose greater fiscal discipline on eurozone members and eight others (but not Britain or the Czech Republic) was signed today after being negotiated in record time” (EU Observer, March 2).

In fact, given the reality that this treaty is by deliberate design of the German elites presently charting the course of the European financial crisis, one could even muse that this treaty was signed according to blitzkrieg timing.

Ever the subject of bickering and arguing when this fiscal union was first mooted by Germany, it is amazing how, when push came to shove, 25 disparate EU member nations—including eight not even part of the eurozone—rolled over like Rover and supinely yielded to the will of Berlin.

In the wake of the signing of this latest EU treaty, the press and mass media in Europe reported that Europe as a whole, and as a consequence the world, breathed somewhat easier. The banking sector was stabilized for the moment and the stock markets commenced an upswing.

Yet, the hidden reality here is that there’s another power in action behind the scenes exerting great influence on the European, and thus the world, economy to which few are paying any real attention at this juncture.

EU Observer noted that “If Europe can breathe more easily it is thanks in large part to two Italians called Mario. First, Italy’s technocratic prime minister, Mario Monti, has started to pull Italy back from the brink through budget cuts and structural reforms.

“More importantly, Mario Draghi, the president of the European Central Bank, has administered a double shot of financial morphine—cheap three-year loans to any eurozone bank that asks for the money—that has eased the acute pain” (ibid).

The power and the influence of these two Jesuit-educated sons of Rome—and, even more importantly, the spirit that moves them—in crafting Europe’s financial and economic future is not yet fully realized by most commentators.

Some time ago we pointed our readers to these two men and advocated watching them closely. What the two Marios represent is the beginning of a change in the leadership of Europe from a Franco-German nexus to a Romano-German leadership.

This is powerfully prophetic.

As EU Observer notes, “Mr. Monti wants to break the Franco-German duumvirate.” To do this he is “building alliances with northern liberals on the issue of the single market.”

By referencing the “single market” concept, Monti is signaling that he will be pushing for the old Common Market idea, on which the EU was built, to be further crafted into a centrally controlled market. “Mario Monti, the Italian prime minister, says that as well as a ‘fiscal compact’ the EU needs an ‘economic compact’” (ibid).

You see the progression here. The strategy is being brilliantly played out by EU elites, while the world at large remains blindingly ignorant of the grave danger it ultimately poses to global stability. A danger that poses the greatest of threats to the Anglo-Saxon nations.


The elites forced monetary union on the majority of EU member nations in a devious plan that, as Bernard Connolly has clearly proved, was set up to deliberately fail. The inevitable failure of monetary union would force the eurozone nations to become dependent on Europe’s most powerful nation—the very nation that crafted the concept of monetary union—for financial bailout. The bailouts would come with conditions attached which would leave EU member nations ultimately yielding up control of their economies to the diktat of Berlin. This it would do via the enforcement of a fiscal union.

With the fiscal union now blitzkrieged into place, this leaves the way clear for the negotiation of yet another EU treaty—the one that Mario Monti is now touting—an “economic compact,” opening the way for the creation of a command economy centrally controlled by EU elites.

If you truly understand Bible prophecy for these times, your mind will already be turning to Revelation 17:12-13 and 13:17.

Those prophecies foreshadow the rise of a northern power bloc of 10 nations, in a “compact” with an overarching “duumvirate” consisting of an economic-politico-military power and an overriding spiritual power, operating as though with one mind with the single-minded purpose of global domination.

Decades before it became a present-day reality, we long identified Germany as the leading economic-politico-military power that would lead this European combine. Now a plethora of secular headlines declare that fact. The Fourth Reich is a reality in substance, if not yet in fully asserting its power.

But what has not been so apparent is the behind-the-scenes influence of Rome.

Since the appointment of the two Marios to highly influential positions within the EU last year, the power of Rome’s influence over the EU and its financial-economic structure is becoming highly evident.

Once more we reiterate, watch the two Marios. They are in the vanguard of Rome’s push for spiritual dominance over the Eurobeast.

As you watch, remember the words of that visionary servant of God who long ago declared of the rising European power: “It has started already, through the economic Common Market and the recently implemented ems (European Monetary System). Its leaders talk continually of political union—which means, also, military. So far they have been unable to bring about full political union. This will be made possible by the ‘good offices’ of the Vatican, who alone can be the symbol of unity to which they can look. Two popes already have offered their ‘good offices’ toward such union” (The United States and Britain in Prophecy).

A third pope, a German pope, is now stepping up the initiating of the further “good offices” of the Vatican via his publicly announced program for an aggressive “new evangelization” of Europe, garnering the wayward back into Rome’s fold in Europe.

As France fades into the background in the leadership of the European Union, watch for Rome to increasingly strengthen its bonds with Germany and rapidly come to the fore in partnership with Berlin to bring about the rise of the “king of the north” to full power—church and state—as exactly prophesied in your Bible.

As you watch these events unfold, keep in mind what a powerful sign they are of the very imminence of the return of Jesus Christ. He will not only subdue this “king of the north,” as your Bible prophesies, at His return. He will overcome any and all resistance to Almighty God by each and every nation through the imposition of His Kingdom, under His law, and establish peace among all nations, universally forever!
