...there is a new film out, Camino, that may shake up the holy image of Opus Dei as much or more the DaVinci Code did? (1)

The difference in this case it  is allegedly based on a true story pointing the finger at the organization founded by now-canonized saint Josemaria Escriva, who appears in the film in the form of a gilded statue and whose book "El Camino - The Way" is referred to in the film's title.

...even though Portugal has been a solidly Christian country for centuries upon centuries they count their days as Jews do? In Judaism the Sabbath is the last day of the week and, our Sunday, is their first day of the week.

In Portugal, although Sunday is called "Domingo", Monday is called "Segunda Feira" - Second day (of the week); Tuesday is called "Terça Feira" - Third day (of the week), etc.

Therefore, by default they imply that Sunday is the First Day of the week, just like Jews do.

Just a bit of cultural and religious trivia....

That highly unusual situation and the fact Mr. Aso has every qualification to be a closeted

(1) As our mailing of yesterday, with the subject of "The Naked Truth", announced to our Very Special List . The  e-mail edited for general viewing purposes follows:

Peace!

This is the naked truth that those in the know in Congress are facing....
1. If they deny the bail out, "they" will pull the plug and claim "I told you so". Without a doubt "they" have a contingency plan to squirrel away enough billions if they need to pull the plug.

2. If they approve it - they will be cooperating in the fulfillment of the two-step plan initiated when the  Road Map For Natural Security : Imperative For Change  was issued on January 31, 2001, and activated on September 11, 2001.
If Congress had balked - as it is trying to do now - when "they" tried to push through the Patriot Act and associated laws, a worse than a 9-11 "terrorist" attack would have struck the US Mainland to the chorus of "We told you so!"

So - as you can see, Congress is between the proverbial rock and hard plate... and they will cave in.

Many continued Blessings!

...many people around the world continue to wonder about what may be the reason for the violent behavior of the young man in Finland and many others before him? Even some government leaders are mystified.... just as mystified as  m de P would be regarding why God allows the world to keep on going "as is" if he did not know that "this party is almost over" by Divine Design.

Allow us.... Approximately 10 minutes of every 30 minutes of TV programming is dedicated to commercials.  Those commercials cause enough of the viewers to act upon their messages thus making their investment lucrative.

Now - our young, on a worldwide scale, are bombarded - hours on end - with wanton violence in TV, Movies and Video Games since a very early age... and we - world leaders included - are puzzled when something like what just happened in Finland occurs?

This - brethren - is how stupid humans are when they do not have the Holy Spirit of God in residence in their hearts.... and most do not, with the "religious types" being at the head of the list.  This situation alone should keep our "praying for" agenda filled because a few in said group are part of the Elect and the sooner they shed their stupidity the less they will have to suffer.

m de P knows that situation well since for 42 years he was a "card carrying stupid human" and, even though God had called him before his birth, prayers were required - demanded by Divine Justice - for him to shed his stupidity and get on with God's business.

Do we need to call Daniel to have the above "writing on the wall" deciphered?

....the only ones who would benefit from the horrendous bombing of the Marriot at Islamabad are the ones who are using the war on terrorism to establish their version of the New World Order?

Given the clearly enunciated stance of the new Pakistani President regarding the Bush Administration's using Pakistani territory as if it were the Wild West of the late 19th century US - this bombing, which would evoke terrorism "with capital letters", would be the last thing any al-Qaeda linked group or home-grown US-hating terrorist group would do.

Think about it... if you dare to!


Published on September 21st, 2008 [Feast of the Apostle Matthew]

...."Sam" is playing it again? [Referring to the almost mythical quote: "Play it again, Sam!"]

As we have have said, over and over again - the military and financial might of the US was in the way of the left branch (1) of the New World Order
(2). As we have also stated, the democratic way of life in the US was in the way of the right branch (3) of the New World Order [both branches are chaired by satan].

So, lo and behold! the "surprise" attacks of 9-11 take place. In the rush of the induced panic the Patriot Act [which had its foundations well established already (4)]  is rushed through Congress who, without reading most of it, and thinking about none of it, approved it.

Results: A never ending War on Terror which has drained the US military might and economy and given birth to a Police State.
(5)

Well, lo and behold (again)! the "surprise" collapse of the US financial system. In the rush of the "we must act before the whole world economy collapses and, oh, you poor citizens, whom we are trying to save (again!), will lose your jobs and houses" drastic economic measures are now being railroaded through yet another Congress mesmerized-by-the-drama.

This rushed-through-package will raise the per-capita (
per man, woman and child) US debt to about $40,000 - a quick jump of $10,000 from the already staggering $30,000 per capita.  This is being accomplished by selling Treasury Bonds  - or whatever they sell to raise the cash needed - to foreign entities.  It seems that China and Middle Eastern Nations are the bargain hunters.

So there you have it - in simple and uncomplicated terms - "they" have the US where "they" wanted it. Then... at the right time.... one "surprise" final whack  and "this party will be really over!"

But what do we know.... after all... some think that our illumination is not from God but from taking opinion polls amongst our readers....

....the US Federal Government, aka the US Taxpayers, has bailed out insurance giant American International Group Inc., staving off bankruptcy and bringing a measure of calm to shell-shocked global markets?

Do you, by any chance, know where the US Federal Government plan to get the money for this one-more-bail-out when the Federal debt, translated to the taxpayers indebtedness to whomever has given credit to the Feds, is over $30,000 per each US citizen?

In simpler terms: In addition to any personal debt that any US citizen may have with Visa, Sears & Roebuck, Walmart, etc. , each US citizen owes over $30,000 to those who have loaned the US Feds the money.

These individuals - the holder of the debt - are the ones who will decide when the US economy is to be flushed down the proverbial toilet and move to the full implementation of the New World Order.

Published on September 16th, 2008

....since 1974, with two exceptions, the U.S. President has been left-handed? The exceptions being Presidents Jimmy Carter and  George W. Bush.

What makes this situation even more interesting is that the next elected President - should we get that far - will be left handed too since both Senators McCain and Obama are both left handed.

Note: In the light of what we published yesterday (see below), we are not implying anything with this curious observation.


Published on September 15th, 2008 [Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows]

....in the days of the Inquisition (the "good old days" for far too many individuals these days) being left handed was a sign of belonging to satan.  Many were burnt at the stake for that born with trait. The "theo-logic" used for that crime is found in the Gospel according to Matthew Ch. 25:

31 And when the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty.  32 And all nations shall be gathered together before him, and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.

and

41 Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels

Thus, the left was seen as the place of the devil and those who were his.

Like with all of these half-baked "theologies" cooked up by those who want to justify acting in an evil manner in the Name of God..... they missed one little detail. In the Gospel according to Luke (and also in those of Matthew and Mark) we read:

But hereafter the Son of man shall be sitting on the right hand of the power of God. [Luke 22:69]

If the Son of Man is sitting at the right hand of the Father, the Father is positioned at the left of the Son of Man  - the same Son who is mentioned above in Matthew 25: 31-41

As if that were not enough to expose those "holy" evil doers, Jesus tells the mother of  James and John: 
But to sit on my right hand, or on my left, is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared [Mark 10:40]

We have gone through all of the above to, once again, underscore that the Word of God is not to be approached as a Buffet Lunch but as a perfectly coherent Divine text.(1)(2) The only ones who would utilize the Divine Word to go against the basic teachings of Jesus Christ are the ones who are at the service of satan and not of God - even if the individual is sitting in the Chair of Peter and pretending to be his true successor. Or didn't Jesus Himself warned us about this thus:

23 (Jesus) turning, said to Peter: Go behind me, Satan, thou art a scandal unto me: because thou savourest not the things that are of God, but the things that are of men. [Matthew 16:23]

Published on September 14th, 2008 [Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross]

....now the enemies of the Christian Faith have come up with an alternate twist to the already bogus discovery of the tomb of Jesus and His family?

In a Civilization Discovery documentary touted as "scrupulously" researched they have "milked" the
bogus discovery of the tomb of Jesus and His family to the "who could believe that stuff" level. In such documentary Jesus, as is well accepted by many now, had married Mary Magdalene; however, they did not have a girl this time.... they had a boy and named him, believe it or not, Judas!

As the idiocy develops the claim is made that the nameless disciple whom "Jesus loved" and about whom we hear many times in the Gospel of John is not John the Evangelist but Jesus and Mary Magdalene's son - Judas!

Now, according to them, he was the disciple who was at the foot of the cross and to whom Jesus addressed these words:
27 ... Behold thy mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own. [John 19]

Allegedly Jesus was speaking to Mary Magdalene from the cross and not to His Mother, Mary.

Such mockery of the truth could not even hold up to the most basic time line since Jesus' "son" could only be barely two years old when Jesus was crucified.

The real and serious problem with this type of activity is that such level of expensive disinformation operation is ONLY worthwhile where there are enough people who would buy it.

Of all the No. 1 songs in the 50 years of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Chubby Checker's "The Twist" ranks as the most popular single.

No, we have not gone off the deep end and are now dealing in pop music history.  This is just to show how the media can alter our perception regardless of reality.

If that was not enough of a shock - take a look at the remaining seven hits: Santana's "Smooth" (No. 2),  Bobby Darin's "Mack the Knife" (No. 3), Leann Rimes' "How Do I Live" (No. 4), "The Macarena" by Los Del Rio (No. 5), Olivia Newton-John's "Physical"  (No. 6) , Debby Boone's "You Light Up My Life" (No. 7) and then The Beatles came it at No. 8 with "Hey Jude.

Amazing, isn't it? That is how the media molds the mind of the masses.

...even though the Gospel of Mark is reliably considered by theo-historians the Gospel of Peter, yet when Jesus asked: But whom do you say that I am? and Peter answered: Thou art the Christ, the only thing Jesus did after this profession of faith was: ....strictly charged them that they should not tell any man of him. [Mark 8: 29-30] Essentially the same exchange takes place in the Gospel of Luke.

It is only in the Gospel of Matthew where the allegation that Jesus was building His Church upon Peter appears. Also the handing over of the Keys of the Kingdom to Peter only appears in the Gospel of Matthew. We do not need any additional support (1) to confirm that the claim that the Church of Jesus Christ is built upon Peter and his successors is ludicrous. We just find this additional piece of information quite interesting and worth noting.

....even though "book learned" scholars and theologians agree that St. Paul erred in his timing when he was speaking thus:

25 Now concerning virgins, I have no commandment of the Lord; but I give counsel, as having obtained mercy of the Lord, to be faithful.

26 I think therefore that this is good for the present necessity, that it is good for a man so to be. 27 Art thou bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. 28 But if thou take a wife, thou hast not sinned. And if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned: nevertheless, such shall have tribulation of the flesh. But I spare you. 29 This therefore I say, brethren; the time is short; it remaineth, that they also who have wives, be as if they had none; 30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as if they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;

31 And they that use this world, as if they used it not: for the fashion of this world passeth away.  [1Cor 7: 25-31]

Time was indeed short and his advice sound. Paul wrote this letter in the year 57 AD and the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in the year 70 AD (1) and the Jews were scattered throughout out the then known world - a diaspora that lasted until 1947, i.e., 1890 years since Paul proclaimed that the time is short.

....because we expose the truth about the US backed Georgia vs Russian conflict it does not mean that we are endorsing Russia?

We only endorse Justice and that is why we have even defended President Bush; it is beyond the poor man's intellectual capabilities to comprehend that "he is being played like a violin"; that he was placed in the White House precisely because of his limited intellectual capabilities.

We do not endorse, and certainly do not defend the atrocities performed by his Administration but the man who is being used as a puppet - we do. Do you realize how his soul is going to feel once it crosses the veil and sees the inescapable truth?

Therefore, if anyone who reads our pages thought that we were siding with Russia - perhaps they need to pray much since their eyes and ears are still too closed for their own benefit.

Let us not forget what Russia represents:

1 And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy. 23 And I saw one of his heads as it were slain to death: and his death's wound was healed. And all the earth was in admiration after the beast. And the beast, which I saw, was like to a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his own strength, and great power. [Revelations 13]
