On site in Japan, Fr. Elias offers several spontaneous reflections on the meaning of the Akita phenomenon and the Christian experience in Japan. Akita is the, site of the 1973 mystical manifestations experienced by Sr. Agnes Sasagawa of the Handmaids of the Eucharist. The mystical phenomena at Akita were authenticated by the local bishop.

Footage for the video was recorded on location at several of the sites on the two-week itinerary of Fr. Elias’ April 2019 pilgrimage to Christian Japan.

From Wikipedia: The messages emphasize prayer (especially recitation of the Holy Rosary) and penance in combination with cryptic visions prophesying sacerdotal persecution and heresy within the Catholic Church.

The apparitions were unusual in that the weeping statue of the Virgin Mary was broadcast on Japanese national television, and gained further notice with the sudden healing of hearing impairment experienced by Sasagawa after the apparitions.[3] The image also became affiliated with The Lady of All Nations movement, with which the message shares some similarities.

The local ordinary of the convent, John Shojiro Ito, Bishop of Niigata (r. 1962–1985),[4] recognized “the supernatural character of a series of mysterious events concerning the statue of the Holy Mother Mary” and authorized “the veneration of the Holy Mother of Akita,” within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Niigata in a 1984 pastoral letter.

As part of the RTV documentary “Hidden Catholics,” Michael J. Matt interviews one of three or four traditional Catholic priests in Japan — Father Thomas Onada, a Japanese convert who is now a priest of the SSPX.

Every week, Father visits the small traditional Catholic remnant on an Asian circuit that includes Osaka and Tokyo, thus serving the Church as missionary priest to the ‘hidden Catholics’ of Japan who have kept the old Faith in a place dominated by Buddhists and Shintoists.

(In this video, priests from Paris were visiting Father Onada’s tiny Japanese community–a big day indeed!)

His story will touch your heart and fill you with hope. And after the interview, don’t miss the beautiful images of our Japanese traditionalist brothers and sisters.

Reporting from Tokyo, Michael J. Matt comments on cultures largely untouched by Christianity and how they differ from, say, Europe.

As Europe and America prepare to banish Christ from their borders, what can we learn from countries such as Japan that never embraced Him? Since Catholicism is, according to its critics, responsible for all the evil in the world, is this a good thing for Japan? Do the Catholic-bashing revisionists have a point?

Plus, Michael speaks of the Japanese Traditional Catholic movement, strong but very small, which this weekend will host a counterrevolutionary conference and then take part in Tokyo’s pro-life march–another small but thriving movement here.

And, finally, Michael launches into a trademark rant against Christophobic revisionist history, especially regarding the Spanish Inquisition, the Crusades and the Spanish conquest of Mexico. Do you think he’s got a point, or is he the one drinking the cool aid?
