Did you know that.... close to one billion Android devices are vulnerable to devasting text-based attack? (1)

Close to 1 billion Android smartphones are vulnerable to a text-based attack that could result in an attacker gaining control of a compromised device without the victim's knowledge, warned security firm Zimperium Mobile Security in a blog post Monday.

The vulnerability lies in the Stagefright media library used to process popular media formats in devices running Android 2.2 and higher.

"Attackers only need your mobile number, using which they can remotely execute code via a specially crafted media file delivered via MMS. A fully weaponized successful attack could even delete the message before you see it. You will only see the notification," explained the company's Z Team in the blog post.

Are you aware that.... a recent report suggest US children left behind in economic recovery? (1)

A new report on child welfare that found more U.S. children living in poverty than before the Great Recession belies the fanfare of the nation's economic turnaround.

Twenty-two percent of American children were living in poverty in 2013 compared with 18 percent in 2008, according to the latest Kids Count Data Book, with poverty rates nearly double among African-Americans and American Indians and problems most severe in South and Southwest.

miguel de Portugal comments: We must pray and pray for those who, throughout the whole world, are suffering from our collective iniquities and greed. If we do not pray for them, who will?

This is not just "pious chat". We take this very seriously and offer a decade of the Rosary for that intention on a daily basis, as well as two Masses per week.

In today's Gospel reading..... we find two most valuable lessons.

The reading: Mt 15:1-2, 10-14

Some Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said, "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They do not wash their hands when they eat a meal."

He summoned the crowd and said to them, "Hear and understand. It is not what enters one's mouth that defiles the man; but what comes out of the mouth is what defiles one." Then his disciples approached and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees took offense when they heard what you said?"

He said in reply, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."

The first lesson, which will help us understand why the Evangelization effort failed, has to do with misunderstanding what Jesus was teaching them about pure intentions.

"Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They do not wash their hands when they eat a meal."

He summoned the crowd and said to them, "Hear and understand. It is not what enters one's mouth that defiles the man; but what comes out of the mouth is what defiles one."

What Jesus was teaching them was not to be physically unclean and careless about basic hygiene. He was teaching them that it was far more important to make sure that what came out of one's heart was clean and pure.

As it was - and is - customary His teachings were not pondered upon. They, then and today, "slap on to it" a thoughtless interpretation based on the superficial meaning of the teaching.

What was the result of this flawed interpretation, besides its contribution to a failed Evangelization? The plagues that decimated the European population as the result of ignoring basic rules of hygiene.

Do you doubt us? If you pursue this issue further you will see that neither the Jews nor Muslims were so affected by those plagues.

Of course, the only explanation for that anomaly, besides what we have given above, would be that "The God of the Jews and Muslims was more caring about His children  than the God of the Christians." ....and who is willing to sign up to such blasphemy?

The second lesson is found when He said:

"Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."

....which confirms why He spoke in parables. Only those "planted" by "His Heavenly Father" would understand the parable when they hear it first hand or when it is explained to them.


Peter said, "Explain the parable to us."

"Are you still so dull?" Jesus asked them.  "Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?  But the things that come out of a person's mouth come from the heart, and these defile them.  For out of the heart come evil thoughts - murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.  These are what defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them." [Mt 15-20]

The others, even when the message is carefully explained to them, will not understand it and will eventually " fall into a pit.".

Was  Jesus overly concerned over this issue? 

The above question is answered with another question. "How hard did Jesus try to explain His messages to the Scribes and Pharisees?"

which brings us to.....

Almost 24 hours before reading the above quoted Gospel..... while we were pondering about the massive deception being poured upon the citizens of the world, in all areas, and how much would like - were it possible - to alert every single human being, God explained the following to miguel...

(a) All the deception that is taking place in the world has telltale signs - like the proverbial invisible man who may not be seen but who leaves his footprints on the sand.

(b) The events themselves, as well as how they are manipulated by the officialdom and the press, are the clues or the proverbial dots to be connected; they constitute today's parables. Most of the truth is found precisely on those efforts to deceive.

(c) Only those who are able to connect the dots or see the connection after it is explained to them are the ones who need to be aware of the truth.
The rest?  Just as with the parables - those
will not understand what is taking place will eventually " fall into a pit.".

Did Jesus worry about the fact that most could not understand the parables, even if/when explained to them? Form what we can see in the New Testament, He did not.

Then, pray tell, why should we be concerned over this issue? For that matter, why should you worry about it as long as you have done what is within your power to share with others the information you know about the massive deception?

That would truly be an act of arrogance by, in effect, trying to be more charitable, merciful and kind than Jesus.

Over the past 24 years we have alerted religious and political leaders as God Willed it.

We continue to make the information available to a part of our List (our entire List does not get the Did you know that....? mail out) who in turn are free to utilize/distribute it as the Holy Spirit of God moves them.

In addition, all key information is available on line - in three languages - to anyone who has access to the Internet.

As long as we have the means to do that, there is no need undue concern lest we offend God with our implied arrogance.

All that we - you and us - have left to do is pray so that those who need to find the information and be alerted do so.

It is really that simple!

May God Be Praised!

From (Mrs.) LC @ US
[an excerpt]

....what is meant by "signal" graces? 

How many different kinds of graces are there?  

Should these questions be deserving of an answer, your response would be most appreciated.

Please be assured of my prayers for you and yours always.

LC

A.Thank you for your kind words and prayers - they are greatly appreciated.

Regarding "signal graces".... That is new term which means that God has given an individual some sort of feedback - an acknowledgment - regarding a prayerful request, act of faith and/or intention.

However, a word of caution is necessary:  Do not seek it (them). God will grant it (them) if and when He deems it appropriate. When one seeks the "sign" or "signal grace" satan is always too willing to provide a false one.


In case you have not heard
..... last week in Miami at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan said he was looking for "10,000 fearless men" to "rise up and kill those who kill us; stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling!" (1)

Farrakhan said "I’m looking for 10,000 in the midst of a million. Ten thousand fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny. Death is sweeter than continuing to live and bury our children while the white folks give our killers hamburgers. Death is sweeter than watching us slaughter each other to the joy of a 400-year-old enemy. ....

miguel de Portugal comments: It seems that the mainstream media has quickly swept the above call to a race war under the proverbial carpet. The usual story - which never pans out: Ignore it and it will go away....

You make a crack at a TSA worker in an airport and you are detained and possibly jailed, this insane man - completely ignorant of the fundamental teachings of God - is publicly recruiting 10,000 men to start a race war while the proverbial establishment looks the other way.

There should be a Federal law on the books establishing that any religious pastor/leader - Jew, Christian, Moslem, etc. - who uses his position to incite violence is to serve an automatic five year jail sentence, with no judicial recourse.

Freedom of religion IS NOT freedom to incite to violence. Period!

If they want to hold completely peaceful prayer sessions - day in and day out - to stop "the white folks who give our killers hamburgers" - that is perfectly fine. That is what freedom of religion is all about.

In the meantime.....
there is an ongoing severe crackdown in China on church crosses. (1)

About a dozen Catholics wept and sang hymns outside their church as a man climbed to the top of the building and sliced off its steel cross with a cutting torch. It toppled with a thud.

Authorities in southeastern Zhejiang province are believed to be under a two-month deadline to remove crosses from the spires, vaults, roofs and wall arches of the 4,000 or so churches that dot the landscape of this economically thriving region.

miguel de Portugal comments: We wonder if Mr. Farrakhan had been allowed to finish his "homily" if he had tried to deliver it in China's southeastern Zhejiang province?

Either extreme is wrong and harmful and will always lead to disaster. Unfortunately, most humans who are at the service of the "Prince" of this world , satan - regardless of what they may think or claim - are unable to learn from such repeated disasters.

As we have said before and will continue to repeat until the End of These Times, there is no creature more stupid than a human being whose soul is devoid of at least some influence by the Holy Spirit of God.

Let us not forget them in our prayers if we want to be Perfect as the Father is Perfect.

44 ...I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. [Matthew 5]

Some details are revealed..... about the Book of Revelations

The two Beasts and the Prophet - Who, Where and When?



Published on August 8th, 2015

From (Mrs.) PD @ US

Considering the following text from the Book of Leviticus, ch. 25....

The law of the seventh and of the fiftieth year of jubilee.

[1] And the Lord spoke to Moses in mount Sinai, saying:... [8] Thou shalt also number to thee seven weeks of years, that is to say, seven times seven, which together make forty-nine years: [9] And thou shalt sound the trumpet in the seventh month, the tenth day of the month, in the time of the expiation in all your land. [10] And thou shalt sanctify the fiftieth year, and shalt proclaim remission (*) to all the inhabitants of thy land: for it is the year of jubilee. Every man shall return to his possession, and every one shall go back to his former family:
________________________________
(*) Remission: That is, a general release and discharge from debts and bondage, and a reinstating of every man in his former possessions.

In Fatima, Mary appeared in May 13 1017.

(a) Fatima's Peace Plan From Heaven.
(b) Miracle October 13 1917
(c) God was trying to give us an alert and opportunity to bring the world back to Him.
 
This was also the year the Jews returned to Israel (December 11, 1917). (1)

September 17, 1917-1918 would be the Jubilee (2) year under Jewish law
 
Could both events be connected to the Jubilee mentioned in Leviticus Chapter 25?
 
If we use the return of the Jews as a symbol of a Jubilee year which started on 1917, the next Jubilee year would be in 1967.

The liberation of Jerusalem took place as the result of the war of 1967 (3).  Israel took possession of Jerusalem at the beginning of another Jubilee year.
 
So, by using those dates the next Jubilee year begins in September 14, 2015 - Feast of the Triumph (Exaltation) of the Cross
 
Are we getting ready for The Thousand year reign, for The (real) Jubilee to begin?

PD

A.
Time will tell but, if the past events are an indication, we may expect something major related to the Jews to take place on the Jubilee Year which starts on September 14, 2015.

Although the Bible is indeed a Sacred Text inspired by God we must remember that it is also a historical book. In it we learn the Laws of God as well as the saga of His Elect. However, just because some event appears in the Bible it does not necessarily mean that is approved by God.

For example, when Moses came down from the mountain with the Tablets of the Law and saw the feast of adoration of the golden calf we read....

[26] Then standing in the gate of the camp, he said: If any man be on the Lord' s side let him join with me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him: [27] And he said to them: Thus saith the Lord God of Israel: Put every man his sword upon his thigh: go, and return from gate to gate through the midst of the camp, and let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour. [28] And the sons of Levi did according to the words of Moses, and there were slain that day about three and twenty thousand men. [29] And Moses said: You have consecrated your hands this day to the Lord, every man in his son and in his brother, that a blessing may be given to you. [Exodus 32]

We do not doubt that Moses gave such orders, but we can assure you that they were not from, nor approved by, God. An act that should not be imitated under any circumstance. Let us remember a much earlier scene wherein we read about God's conversation with Cain:

[11] Now, therefore, cursed shalt thou be upon the earth, which hath opened her mouth and received the blood of thy brother at thy hand. [12] When thou shalt till it, it shall not yield to thee its fruit: a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be upon the earth. [13] And Cain said to the Lord: My iniquity is greater than that I may deserve pardon. [14] Behold thou dost cast me out this day from the face of the earth, and I shall be hidden from thy face, and I shall be a vagabond and a fugitive on the earth: every one, therefore, that findeth me, shall kill me. [15] And the Lord said to him: No, it shall not be so: but whosoever shall kill Cain, shall be punished sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, that whosoever found him should not kill him. [Genesis 4]

Let us fast forward to the Prophet Elias and the time when he was competing with the priests of Baal to prove Who was the Real God.

[36] And when it was now time to offer the holocaust, Elias the prophet came near and said: O Lord God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Israel, shew this day that thou art the God of Israel, and I thy servant, and that according to thy commandment I have done all these things. [37] Hear me, O Lord, hear me: that this people may learn, that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart again. [38] Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the holocaust, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. [39] And when all the people saw this, they fell on their faces, and they said: The Lord he is God, the Lord he is God. [40] And Elias said to them: Take the prophets of Baal, and let not one of them escape. And when they had taken them, Elias brought them down to the torrent Cison, and killed them there [1King 18]

We can assure you with almost brutal certainty that Elias was acting on his own and not on behalf of God.

A reader might say to us: "How dare you criticize actions carried out by Moses and Elias?"

To which we will answer: "Let us go and visit with King David for a spell".

What did King David do with Bethsabee the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Urias the Hethite?

He caused her to commit adultery and he was personally responsible for the murder of Urias. In one fell swoop David violated two major Divine Commandments.

If we apply the the blind eye technique, as many apply with the actions of Moses and Elias (above),  adultery and murder would be fine. Thanks be to God that in that case the Divine reaction was recorded. In spite of the exalted position God had granted the shepherd turned into King David this was the Divine reaction:

Thus saith the Lord the God of Israel: I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee from the hand of Saul, [8] And gave thee thy master' s house and thy master' s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and Juda: and if these things be little, I shall add far greater things unto thee. [9] Why therefore hast thou despised the word of the Lord, to do evil in my sight? Thou hast killed Urias the Hethite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon. [10] Therefore the sword shall never depart from thy house, because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Urias the Hethite to be thy wife.

[11] Thus saith the Lord: Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thy own house, and I will take thy wives before thy eyes I and give them to thy neighhour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. [12] For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing in the sight of all Israel, and in the sight of the sun. [2 Samuel 12]

"Who are you to judge?", 'Pope' Francis may ask us. To which we will respond:

miguel the Portugal - and anyone conversant with the application of Divine Laws - can judge actions, not souls, using the crystal clear guidelines provided by Divine Law. That is precisely what we have done as we judged Moses and Elias actions, not souls. Only God Who can judge souls.

That is exactly what Jesus meant when He said:

[1] Judge not, that you may not be judged, [2] For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again. [Matthew 7]

We are to judge actions using crystal clear guidelines provided by Divine Law, but never the individual. However, even when we judge actions we should not forget:

 [3] And why seest thou the mote that is in thy brother' s eye; and seest not the beam that is in thy own eye? [4] Or how sayest thou to thy brother: Let me cast the mote out of thy eye; and behold a beam is in thy own eye? [5] Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam in thy own eye, and then shalt thou see to cast out the mote out of thy brother' s eye. [Matthew 7]

Just like the often used saying - Charity begins at home.... before we get on the white horse of righteousness let us take stock as to how we are living in regards to the crystal clear guidelines provided by Divine Law and strive to correct any deviations from it.

In conclusion: If we read about some Biblical Hero violating Divine Law it should never be taken as an example - under no circumstances whatsoever. Let the Divine judgment upon King David be a reminder that God does not "play favorites" when His Laws are blatantly violated.


On today's Gospel we read....


[14] And when he was come to the multitude, there came to him a man falling down on his knees before him, saying: Lord, have pity on my son, for he is a lunatic, and suffereth much: for he falleth often into the fire, and often into the water. [15] And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.

[16] Then Jesus answered and said: O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. [17] And Jesus rebuked him, and the devil went out of him, and the child was cured from that hour. [18] Then came the disciples to Jesus secretly, and said: Why could not we cast him out? [19] Jesus said to them: Because of your unbelief. [Matthew 17]

Then note that Jesus' statement - "O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you?".

Such statement was directed, not at the poor man with the lunatic son, but to His disciples as the result of their lack of faith.

We should all make an effort to avoid being reprimanded as His disciples were.


Published on August 11th, 2015

From miguel de Portugal

In our document The Time Line of the Creation of Today's Human - From Its Beginning (1) there were two secondary questions which were left unanswered since we are not "in the business of manufacturing information". What we know, we do! and what we do not, we acknowledge it!

The first was related to what we knew as Noah's flood:

11,500 years (more or less) ago the Younger Dryas glacial period ends suddenly, and Earth goes back to warmth and moist climates (Holocene, or Stage 1)

[Somewhere around 9,500 BC, the event that is Biblically know as Noah's Flood took place. For our purposes, as stated at the beginning of the original document, it is not necessary to pinpoint the exact date of that global cataclysm nor what had caused the cataclysmic melting of the glaciers.]

That is 12,500 - 11,500 years (more or less) ago, according to the climatological date calculation methods, a major cataclysm took place which melted a large part of the the glaciers in our planet.

We had no idea as to why the glacial period ended suddenly, thus causing tremendous floods on a planetary scale. We also had no idea why:

At about 8,200 years ago the planet experienced a sudden cool and dry phase in many areas.

As if the effect of whatever triggered the sudden heating up of the planet had come to an end.

The second question which was left unanswered appeared on the Note added on February 5, 2009, in which we stated:

The only area of Dr. Spencer Wells work which did not dove tail with what has been given to us otherwise was his claim that a branch of the early human migrations out of Africa entered the Americas ca. 11,000 BC.

Such time frame would not have allowed the highly developed civilizations on Central and South America which may have existed at the time of the Flood.  A fact confirmed by a page on Early Human Migrations where we found out that "Controversial findings in Chile at Monte Verde may indicate a human presence in the Americas by up to 33,000 years ago (31,000 BC)." All else was the same, thus confirming all else that had been given to us otherwise.

It seems that God decided to fill in the blanks, so to speak, and led me to a book which contained a reference to a report published in the year 2001 about a research carried out in the Lawrence, Berkeley National Laboratory.

The research done by Richard B. Firestone and William Topping clearly showed that:

The PaleoIndian occupation of North America, theoretically the point of entry of the first people to the Americas, is traditionally assumed to have occurred within a short time span beginning at about 12,000 yrs. ago.

This is inconsistent with much older South American dates of around 32,000 yrs. ago and the similarity of the Paleoindian toolkit to Mousterian traditions that disappeared about 30,000 years ago.

A pattern of unusually young radiocarbon dates in the Northeast has been noted by Bonnichsen and Will. Our research indicates that the entire Great Lakes region (and beyond) was subjected to particle bombardment and a catastrophic nuclear irradiation that produced secondary thermal neutrons from cosmic ray interactions.

and

The enormous energy released by the catastrophe at 12,500 yrs. ago could have heated the atmosphere to over 1000°C over Michigan, and the neutron flux at more northern locations would have melted considerable glacial ice. Radiation effects on plants and animals exposed to the cosmic rays would have been lethal, comparable to being irradiated in a 5-megawatt reactor more than 100 seconds.

The overall pattern of the catastrophe matches the pattern of mass extinction before Holocene times. The Western Hemisphere was more affected than the Eastern, North America more than South America, and eastern North America more than western North America.

Summarizing the report and translating the key elements into easy to understand terms, what the Firestone-Topping team found out was:

(a) The northeastern area on North America "was subjected to particle bombardment and a catastrophic nuclear irradiation that produced secondary thermal neutrons from cosmic ray interactions". Read: Hit by the equivalent of a Gamma Ray Burst (2)

(b) The world acclaimed method for dating - the Carbon 14 method - was affected by the catastrophic nuclear irradiation. That is, any Carbon 14 dating for that area is substantially off.

(c) The error in the estimated Carbon 14 dates eliminates the only part of Dr. Spencer Wells work which was not in agreement with what God had revealed to us - one "dot" at a time - about the true chronology of Creation.

(d) The Gamma Ray Burst equivalent which Firestone-Topping identified as occurring about 12,500 years ago - "which could have heated the atmosphere to over 1000°C over Michigan" - undoubtedly was more than enough to trigger the mass melting of glaciers, thus greatly raising water level on a worldwide scale - an event that we know as Noah's Flood and which has been amply recorded by many civilization around the world.

(e) This may also explain why eventually about 8,200 years ago a sudden cool and dry phase occurred in many areas. One can surmise that after the Earth recovered itself from the effects of the Gamma Ray Burst equivalent, it  drifted back to where it should have been if there had not experienced such brutal cosmic ray intervention.

The Firestone-Topping report as published in the March 2001 on the Mammoth Trumpet magazine (3) is very technically complex, however, it has enough "plain language" sections that may be of interest to many of our readers.

As we do not tire of claiming: May God Be Praised!

If you ever.....
doubted the seriousness of our continued warnings about the insecurity in the Internet, we invite you to take a look at the Vulnerability Summary for the Week of August 3, 2015.

We receive a bulletin like this from the U.S. government every week. In it they list the new vulnerabilities that have been recorded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Vulnerability Database in the past week.

Just a brief glance at the extent of the vulnerabilities will suffice to show you that, if anything, we do not issue enough warnings about it!



Published on the Eve of August 13, 2015 [Mary, Refuge of Sinners]

From miguel de Portugal

As most of our readers might remember - our recommendation is to be "Always Ready" for the major blow(s) that will accompany the reaching the End of These Times, and not try to figure out what and when.

As Jesus said through a recent Divine Encouragement:

Remember you cannot see the future.  I can. You could not bear it.  So only little by little can I reveal it to you.

This does not mean that all that He highlights to me should remain under wraps - especially when events have the "Seal of Heaven" as shown by apparent coincidences associated with them.

Four  days ago - just from the proverbial nowhere - we realized that on this year, 2015, it would be seven years since the financial crash of 2008; a crash that took place exactly ten years from the year the downfall was going to begin - 1998. [Remember, that God granted us a ten year compression of events - a delay (1) in the beginning of intense suffering.]

Because such "realization" was certainly orchestrated by Heaven, we decided to look at the key dates for the collapse in 2008. Of course, if we are to have a "marker" to indicated the visible beginning of the collapse, that marker has to be the collapse of Leehman Brothers. Therefore, we looked into it and, to our astonishment, this is what we found out.

At 1:45am on September 15 (the day after the Triumph of the Cross and the day of Our Lady of Sorrows), 2008, Leehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection following the massive exodus of most of its clients, drastic losses in its stock, and devaluation of its assets by credit rating agencies. Lehman's bankruptcy filing is the largest in US history, and is thought to have played a major role in the unfolding of the late-2000s global financial crisis. The following day, Barclays announced its agreement to purchase, subject to regulatory approval, Lehman's North American investment-banking and trading divisions along with its New York headquarters building.

On September 20, 2008, a revised version of that agreement was approved by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge James M. Peck. The next week, Nomura Holdings announced that it would acquire Lehman Brothers' franchise in the Asia-Pacific region, including Japan, Hong Kong and Australia, as well as Lehman Brother's investment banking and equities businesses in Europe and the Middle East. The deal became effective on October 13 (Anniversary of Miracle of Fatima and Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament), 2008.

On September 21 (St. Matthew, Evangelist), 2008, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, the last two major investment banks in the United States, both confirmed that they would become traditional bank holding companies, bringing an end to the era of investment banking on Wall Street.

The Federal Reserve's approval of their bid to become banks ended the ascendancy of the securities firms, 75 years after Congress separated them from deposit-taking lenders, and capped weeks of chaos that sent Lehman Brothers into bankruptcy and led to the rushed sale of Merrill Lynch & Co. to Bank of America Corp.

And, of all the Apostles whose feast day was to be associated with these events it had to be Matthew - the Tax Collector - that is, the Apostle most associated with money and with stealing (a Roman Tax Collector) money fom the poor masses.

Of course, the Seventh Anniversary of such events will take place next month and those Catholic related Feast Dates will be on the same days since they are not variable dates.

However, our Jewish brethren will be observing their variable, and most important, Religious dates on related days:

Rosh Hashanah - Begins sunset of  Sunday, September 13, 2015 and ends nightfall of  Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Yom Kippur - Begins sunset of  Tuesday, September 22, 2015 and ends nightfall of  Wednesday, September 23, 2015

(Yom Kippur, also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. Its central themes are atonement and repentance.)

September 22nd is the day after the Feast of St. Matthew and September 23rd is the Feast of the Conception of John the Baptist.

We are sure that, to the eyes of someone like Stephen Hawking - the high profile atheist physicist, the additional fact that "Pope" Francis will be addressing the U.S. Congress on September 24th, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom, is just another wild coincidence...

Considering the mystical importance that the number "seven"  and a period of "seven years" have and the many Heavenly messages delivered through the World Wars I and II date correlation (2), perhaps we should take note.

Were you aware that..... today we are in for a gret Perseid Meteor Shower? (1)

Every year in mid-August, Earth plows headlong into the debris left behind by Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. Slamming into our atmosphere at 130,000 mph, the crumbles flash to light as the Perseid meteor shower. One of the world's most beloved cosmic spectacles, this year's show promises to be a real crowd pleaser.

Not only will the Moon be absent, but the shower maximum happens around 3 a.m. CDT (8 UT) August 13 - early morning hours across North America when the Perseid radiant is highest.

How many meteors will you see? Somewhere in the neighborhood of 50-100 meteors per hour. As always, the darker and less light polluted your observing site, the more zips and zaps you’ll see.

This year's shower is special in another way. According to Sky and Telescope magazine,.... predicts a bump in the number of Perseids around 1:39 p.m. (18:39 UT) as Earth encounters a debris trail shed by the Comet Swift-Tuttle back in 1862.

Did anything of significance.... happened in the Catholic world on or before 1862?

On May 30, 1862, Don Bosco recounted that in a dream he had seen an immense sea on which a great many ships were arranged for battle against a larger and taller ship. He also saw others which were defending the tall ship. Here are his words.


One last reminder..... miguel de Portugal does not "make the rules" nor "pass judgment".

miguel - and our readers - must remind those in the world who go around wondering "Where was (or is) God?" when this or that happened, why it did (or still is).

One day man will learn that the adverb "slow" does not mean the same as "never". Although God NEVER angers, the consequences of our transgressions are as automatic as the effect of the Law of Gravity.

The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. [Psalm 103:8]

which is further clarified at...

The LORD is slow to anger and great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. [Nahum 1:3]

From miguel de Portugal

Brethren, it is time that someone takes group-focused spiritual action on the world stage and it is clearly obvious that it is our responsibility to do so.

We need two groups of truly faithful individuals to help God bring These Times to a thundering close, but, in full accordance to His Will and His Terms and not in accordance to our petty wills.

Before sharing with you what we are seeking from God, we wish to remind you of statements made by Jesus through recent Divine Encouragement and for which I can personally vouched since I have experienced the manifestation of each of His Words.

 -0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

The world would be brought to Me so soon, so soon, if only all who acknowledge Me as Lord, as Christ, gave themselves unreservedly to be used by Me.

I could use each human body as mightily as I used My own human body as a channel for Divine Love and Power.

I do not delay My second coming.  My followers delay it.

-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

When two of you are together in My Name, united by one bond in My Spirit, I am there.  Not only when you meet to greet Me, but always.

Think what this means in Power.  It is the Power that follows the two united to serve Me.

-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

So now, it is not the unbelief of My enemies that hurts, but that My friends cannot walk all the way with Me, and doubt My Power to do all that I have said.

-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

But you must know always that the first step is to lay your will before Me as an offering, ready that I shall do what is best, sure that, if you trust Me, what I do for you will be best.

Your second step is to be sure, and tell me so, that I am Powerful enough to do everything ("The hearts of  kings are in My rule and governance"), that no miracle is impossible with me ("With God all things are possible" and "I and My Father are one").

-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

With that as a backdrop we are seeking the establishment of two praying groups who are willing to believe and act in accordance to what you have read above. Nothing less will be accepted.

What will be the set objectives of each group?

Devote at least fifteen minutes of focused prayer  per day seeking that:

(a) The Will of God be done on Earth as it is in Heaven (in everything!) because only then we will have Justice and, only when we have Justice, we will have Peace.

(b) God's Mercy be bestowed upon those who are suffering throughout the world as the result of our iniquities and greed.

If you truly believe His Words - as quoted above - and want to make a concerted group effort to help in the return of Jesus and the establishment of His Kingdom, let us know which of the two proposed options you want to participate in. Once we have your commitment in writing via e-mail we will set the starting and ending dates.

This will be the first of several target spiritual objectives. As we end one set and God reveals new targets, we will, once again ask you to choose one from a set of two.

We look forward to your response.

In reference to: ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape (1)

This was hard to read.  Thank you for sharing this information.
 
I look forward to Jesus' return.

LM

A. Indeed it is hard to read but we tend to avoid these tragedies which, in turn, leads to spiritual paralysis.

When events like this are rare and people seek to read about them, we may be before someone with some sort of psychological impairment. However, when this type of story has become the world's "daily bread" we must highlight them and call one and all to spiritual action.

That story is just another reminder of why God will allow the almost complete eradication of human life in the world. You see, most faithful (Jews, Christian and Muslim) seem to forget that victimized girl - and the thousands upon thousands who are experiencing this horror - were also created by God. It is to Him to Whom we have to answer for our lack of concern because it is in our hands that He has placed the tools to prevent it - starting with prayer and fasting.

From (Mrs.) IW @ US

With reference to the establishment of two prayer groups and your invitation to join....

I am not worthy.  I will get back to you after I pray and discern.

IW

A. Shouldn't you let God decide whether you are worthy or not?

Remember this parable:
[10] Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

[11] The Pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself: O God, I give thee thanks that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican. [12] I fast twice in a week: I give tithes of all that I possess. [13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven; but struck his breast, saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner.

14] I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted. [Luke 18]
The publican went home justified because he knew how miserable he was, yet, had enough faith and trust in God that he was seeking forgiveness and, by doing so with a contrite heart, he was striving to be a better person.

Allow us to tell you and everyone that will read these lines: No one, but no one, is worthy to serve God unless He decrees otherwise. However, it is precisely those who are fully and sincerely aware of  their miseries the ones who are chosen by God.

Remember Paul's conversation with God and what God said?

[7] And lest the greatness of the revelations should exalt me, there was given me a sting of my flesh, an angel of Satan, to buffet me. [8] For which thing thrice I besought the Lord, that it might depart from me. [9] And he said to me: My grace is sufficient for thee; for power is made perfect in infirmity. Gladly therefore will I glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may dwell in me. [10] For which cause I please myself in my infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ. For when I am weak, then am I powerful. [2 Cor. 12]

Your mentality as manifested in your communication - which is the same one of hundred of millions of Catholics - is a perfect example of the "Evangelization by Guilt" which has is the trademark of the failed Evangelizers.

As we have said many times - miguel de Portugal is not preaching/teaching a New Gospel; he is only bringing to light that which has been locked up in darkness for 1600 years and which Jesus intended to be proclaimed to the ends of the world.

And this gospel of the kingdom, shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations, and then shall the consummation come. [Matthew 24:14]

 Let us know your decision whenever you reach it.


From miguel de Portugal

We wish to share with our readership certain concepts about prayer so that when the focused group prayer becomes active everyone will be on the proverbial same page.

1. Have you noticed that most prayers are offered in the plural (we, us) even though most prayers are offered in private?

Prayers should be preceded by the following invocation: "Invoking the communion of saints I pray....." Then the "us" and "we" will have the meaning they should have and those who are part of the Body of Christ, at either side of the veil, will benefit from your prayers.  Otherwise, some of the effect of the prayer may be lost.

2. We have to be specific - and, praying that the Will of God be done on Earth as it is in Heaven, is very specific even though on the surface it seems that it is not.

That story of "Oh, God knows my heart and I do not have to explain everything to, and/or be specific with, Him" collapses in the face of the requirement that we must pray. If such "principle" were true we would not be required to pray, after all, God would know what we want before we ask it and He would not require confirmation.

Yes, He does know and, in many cases, He even places the request in our hearts, but we still have to exercise our free will by specifically making a request.

3. Generally speaking, the only prayer that does not require that we focus on the words that we are pronouncing is when we pray the Rosary. In that case we should focus on the mystery.

We should clearly focus on our petition(s) as we start to pray and then, with the exception of the Rosary, also focus on the words that we are pronouncing.

If you want proof of the above, consider the following: If you record a number of prayers and then play them back while you go and do something else, will those prayers have any effect? Of course not! Similarly, if we mechanically repeat the words of any prayer while our mind wonders to our problems, schedules, agenda for the day, etc. our prayers will have the same effect as the played-back prayers.

For example - When we pray: "St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle, be our safeguard...." we are talking to him; we are connecting with him and every single world should be stated with full consciousness of its meaning.

This is why He said in a recent Divne Encouragement:

....be sure, and tell me so, that I am Powerful enough to do everything ("The hearts of  kings are in My rule and governance"), that no miracle is impossible with me ("With God all things are possible" and "I and My Father are one").

This may appear very difficult to do but, with practice, our brain and soul combined can achieve such connection with the unseen. How else do you think miguel could drive at 70 mph (116 kmph) in the freeways around the Houston-Galveston metroplex while meditating on the Mysteries of rosaries after rosaries? Of course, that was possible when miguel knew where he was driving to. That is not possible - nor recommended - if one is trying to find the way to a place one has never/seldom been at.


In case that you have not noticed..... the world population is being bombarded with UFO and Alien God stories now more than ever - with the History Channel at the lead.

That is why we have reissued a document that has been announced on the Board as follows:
