Catholics and other Christians who study prophecy have at least once run across a coming "Three Days of Darkness."  Reading the prophecy can instill fear, especially if one isn't prepared.  Many prophets have outlined their visions over the centuries. Among the scariest of of them is that of Marie Julie Jahenny, French mystic and stigmatist who lived from 1850 to 1941:

In a vision of a dialogue between Our Lord and Lucifer, the latter said, "I will attack the Church. I will overthrow the Cross, I will decimate the people, I will deposit a great weakness of faith in hearts. There will also be A GREAT DENIAL OF RELIGION. For a time I will be MASTER of all things, everything will be under MY CONTROL, even Your temple and all Your people." 

Marie-Julie said, "Saint Michael says that Satan will have possession of everything for some time and that he will reign completely over everything ; that all goodness, faith, religion will be buried in the tomb. . . Satan and his own will triumph with joy, but after this triumph, the Lord will in His turn gather His own people and will REIGN and TRIUMPH OVER EVIL and WILL RAISE UP from the tomb the buried Church, the prostrated Cross. . . " 

Marie-Julie announced the three days of darkness during which the infernal powers will be loosed and will execute all the enemies of God:

"The crisis will explode suddenly; the punishments will be shared by all and will succeed one another without interruption... "
( January 4, 1884).

"The three days of darkness "... will be on a THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. Days of the Most Holy Sacrament, of the Cross and Our Lady. . . ." three days less one night."
"The earth will be covered in darkness»", says Our Lady on 20th of September 1882, "...AND HELL WILL BE LOOSED ON EARTH. Thunder and lightning will cause those who have no faith or trust in My Power, to die of fear."
"During these three days of terrifying darkness, no windows must be opened, because no one will be able to see the earth and the terrible colour it will have in those days of punishment without dying at once... "
"The sky will be on fire, the earth will split... During these three days of darkness let the blessed candle be lighted everywhere, no other light will shine.... "
"NO ONE OUTSIDE A SHELTER.. will survive. The earth will shake as at the judgment and fear will be great. Yes, We will listen to the prayers of your friends ; NOT ONE WILL PERISH. We will need them to publish the glory of the Cross.... "(8th of December 1882)

" THE CANDLES OF BLESSED WAX ALONE WILL GIVE LIGHT during this horrible darkness. ONE CANDLE alone will be enough for the duration of this night of hell... In the homes of the wicked and blasphemers these candles will give NO LIGHT."

"And Our Lady states : "Everything will shake except the piece of furniture on which the blessed candle is burning. This will not shake. You will all gather around with the crucifix and my blessed picture. This is what will keep away this terror."
"During this darkness the devils and the wicked will take on THE MOST HIDEOUS SHAPES... red clouds like blood will move across the sky. The crash of the thunder will shake the earth and sinister lightning will streak the heavens out of season. The earth will be shaken to its foundations. The sea will rise, its roaring waves will spread over the continent..."
"THE EARTH WILL BECOME LIKE A VAST CEMETERY». The bodies of the wicked and the just will cover the ground."
"Three-quarters of the population of the globe will disappear. Half the population of France will be destroyed." 

Like all prophecies, people tend to speculate on the day, the hour, and the possible cause of these events.  Will it be a celestial cataclysm like a solar flare or a comet, or was Jahenny seeing the results of a nuclear war which she didn't understand at the time of these prophecies? It's good to speculate, but it's better to be prepared. Purchasing items such as storable food and water is a good idea, but I decided to prepare first for the spiritual battle.

In all extended families, there are various levels of faith represented.   I decided that, at the very least, my loved ones should have the necessary items spoken about in the Three Days of Darkness prophecies, so I made 24 Holy Kits; one for each household in my and my husband's family as well as for the future households of my children. My husband built beautiful, custom made wooden keepsake boxes to contain the necessary items in an attractive way so the items wouldn't be tossed into a forgotten drawer, but be displayed and ready for use at all times.  Once all the items were assembled, I chose a good, holy priest who would take this work seriously and invited him to come over and bless all the kits before distribution. He even blessed my house! The presence of Christ in my home during this Godly event was strong!   The photo above shows the beautiful boxes and the blessed items I put in each kit.  A niece jokingly called hers an Armageddon kit as she graciously accepted it,  and a faith-filled cousin joyfully noted that the boxes resemble tabernacles! 

The Holy Kits, ready to be blessed.
