The vision of the Saintly Catherine was given to Francis Joseph and Sisi some years before Rudolph’s mysterious death. After Mayerling the saintly nun was contacted again by Dr. Marschall. This is the combined vision:
‘If The Crown Prince continues to persist in his futile excesses the father will lose what he holds dearest on earth. In an explosion of insanity the idol of a powerful empire will pass away like a dream. He will die like the hero of a gloomy saga…..
…….I saw it all. There is no need for me to come to Vienna. There would only be many confusing questions which I have no desire to answer. But tell the Emperor he may rest in peace in his grief. There is no need to deprive the Crown Prince’s unfortunate soul of Christian charity. Requiem masses may continue to be said for the peace of his soul. Tell the Emperor that his son did not commit suicide. He was murdered. It would have been easy enough for the Imperial Court to find the guilty person if it had wanted to do so….’
