Mother Josefa of Bourg, founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Savior, lived in the 1800s and made this prophecy about the Holy Emperor:
“The chastisements of God will fall upon us in diverse manners. The plague, the trouble, the spilled blood. There will be in our France a frightful reversal! Nevertheless those days will be abrogated in favor of the just. God will elevate to the throne a model king, a Christian king. The son of Saint Louis will love religion, goodness, justice. The Lord will give him the light, the wisdom, and the power. He has prepared for it long beforehand and it will come to pass in the crucible of proof and suffering, but he is going to recall the exiles.
“He, the Lord, will take him by the hand, and at the fixed day he will be placed on the throne. His destiny is to repair and regenerate; the consoled religion will flourish again, and all the people praise the reign of the heaven-sent Prince; but afterwards the evil will take over and endure more or less until the end of time. The light of On High has not been given to me for the last events of the world called the apocalypse.”
