I wanted to touch base and let you know that your four
part series on Salvation Outside of the Roman Catholic Church was
It’s important for people to know that as Christians we worship Christ
and not the Church. The church is simply a delivery mechanism and not
the subject of our worship. The Holy Spirit has shown me who Christ is
and what He has done for me. It has been through this illumination, and
the influx of much grace, that I can call Jesus my Lord. I call Jesus
Lord because He alone is trustworthy to give my will and very essence
God has spoken plainly about this; “It
is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man” (Psalm
118:8), “Do not put your
trust in princes” (Psalm 146:3) and “No man can serve two masters. For either
he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one,
and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon” (Matthew
Through your cooperation, and this four part series, God again is
beseeching all of us to worship and serve His triune being only.
Thank you for all that you do in His name.
Yours in Christ,
A. Thank you for your kind
words and thoughts regarding this crucial and critical matter.
To what you have added we can only respond in one way: AMEN!
If most people would understand that the highest level of freedom,
peace and achievement in Time can only be achieved by tuning their ears

it ironic...... to see that the Prophecies delivered by
the Virgin Mary, through two Apparitions yet to
be approved by the Vatican, have
become fulfilled with a vengeance by
means of the many scandals which have engulfed the Roman Catholic
Church Administration, on a
global scale, for the last 40 years?
In Her Apparitions of Montechiari and
Fontanelle, Italy, (1947 and 1966) She stated:
I wish that the
13th July be
celebrated each year in honour of the Rosa Mystica (the Mystical Rose)
(Pierina asked whether a miracle would
follow. Our Lady replied:) The most
evident miracle will be this:
Those who have given their souls to God - the
religious who, for a long time now, have become indifferent thus
betraying their vocation and as a result of their offenses have brought
punishments and persecutions which are raging against the Church at the
present time - will stop to offend Our Lord. They will again lead a
according to the original spirit of their saintly founders.
(Our Lady appeared in the Basilica of
Montichiari in the presence of some people. Among them were several
priests. Pierina heard the words:) Our
Lord can no
longer watch the many grievous sins against purity. He wants to send a
flood of punishments. I have interceded that He may be merciful once
Therefore, I ask for prayer and penance to atone for these sins.
In Her Apparitions of San Sebastián de Garabandal, Spain, (1961
- 1965) She stated:
message of October 18 has not been complied with and has not been made
known to the world, I am advising you that this is the last one.
Before, the cup
was filling up. Now it is flowing over.
Cardinals, many Bishops and many priests are on the road
to perdition and are taking many souls with them. Less and
less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the
wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts. If you ask His
forgiveness with sincere
hearts, He will pardon you. I, your Mother, through the intercession of
Saint Michael the Archangel, ask you to amend your lives. You are now
receiving the last
warnings. Pray to us with sincerity and we will grant your requests.
You should make more sacrifices. Think about the passion of Jesus".
It is indeed ironic that the Vatican has not approved either
Apparition, yet the behavior
of the leaders of the
Church has given the silent seal of approval to such Apparitions.
Are you aware....
the crystal clear apocalyptic warning given to the Faithful by H.H.
His Holiness, Pope Paul VI spoke in
1977, one year before his death, and which are recorded in the book,
"The Secret Paul VI", by Jean Guitton, pages 152 and 153
"There is a great uneasiness, at this
time, in the world and in the Church, and that which is in question is
the faith. It so happens now that I repeat to myself the obscure phrase
of Jesus in the Gospel of St. Luke: 'When the Son of Man returns, will
He still find faith on the earth?' It so happens that there are books
coming out in which the faith is in retreat on some important points,
that the episcopates are remaining silent and these books are not
looked upon as strange. This, to me, is strange. I sometimes read the
Gospel passage of the end times and I attest that, at this time, some
signs of this end are emerging."
"Are we close to the end ? This we
will never know. We must always hold ourselves in readiness, but
everything could last a very long time yet."
"What strikes me, when I think of the
Catholic world, is that within
Catholicism, there seems sometimes to
predominate a non-Catholic way of thinking, and it can happen
non- Catholic thought within Catholicism, will tomorrow become the
stronger. But it will never represent the thought of the Church. It is
necessary that a small flock subsist, no matter how small it might be".
Pope Paul VI - 1977
So why should we be scandalized if Mary,
Mother of the Word Incarnate, is intervening today, in a very strong
way, to help Her children back to God?
In the Gospel
the Mass honoring Thomas the Apostle we read:
he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring
your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but
Thomas answered and said to him, "My
Lord and my God!" Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because
you have seen me?
Blessed are those who have not seen
and have believed."
We must remember that "to believe" is to strive to live His Words. No
matter how sinful our tendencies may be - if we truly strive with every
breath to live His Words, He will be by our side helping us
at every step - and that IS indeed being Blessed!

We have received the following letter from a long time friend of The
who is a devout and sincere practitioner of the
Catholic Faith as opposed
to a devout promoter of the Roman Catholic Administration.
With his authorization we are reproducing his letter below:
greetings to you in the Name of Jesus
I have read the subject index over
and over concerning the Act Of Transubstantiation during the liturgy of
the Mass particularly the specific sequence of the priest performing
the Act hoping to discern some insight into the subject and use of 'so
called' Reserved Hosts' brought from the sanctuary after the Act Of
Transubstantiation has been performed...
Every single inquiry has met with the
same reply: the "Hosts from the tabernacle have positively been
transformed at a previous Mass" (implied: you should not question the
authenticity of those brought forward after the fact).
If they have been placed in the
sanctuary then why not bring them out as many times as necessary to
validate/re-validate their inclusion in the liturgy underway at that
I know I have worn out this subject
but I have yet to find even a discussion or even a passing reference to
my sincere inquiry.
It would be presumptuous of me to
suggest that the Holy Spirit prompts me to seek the answers to these
questions but I hardly think I would have thought this up all on my own.
Yours in the love of Jesus and your
friend for many years
We thank you for bringing up this subject again. It is something that
concerns us greatly. On May 11, 2013, we published the following:
We have spoken
before about the hosts given in communion which were not
consecrated in the Mass one is attending. Those hosts were allegedly
consecrated "in another Mass", a Mass that no one seem to know the
"where" and "when" of.
We have also quoted the Roman Catholic Church
protocol clearly stating
that the hosts used in communion must have
been consecrated in said Mass.
Just yesterday we noticed that in the English translation of the
official Roman Missal - just
in case the officiating
priest (conveniently) forgot the protocol - at the very
beginning of the official text for the Liturgy of the Eucharist,
hosts (and wine) for the
communion of the faithful are to be prepared. It is most
important that the
faithful should receive
the body of the Lord in hosts consecrated at the same Mass and
should share the cup when it is permitted. Communion is thus a clearer
sign of sharing in the sacrifice which is actually taking place.
instructions no. 56h]
again we call this to the attention of the faithful and encourage them
not to consume
the hosts "consecrated" at some unspecified "Mass". Look for a parish
in your area where: (a) the consecration is done correctly; and (b)
where the host that you are given was consecrated in that Mass.
There are times when the officiating
priest has to resort to a few
hosts from those saved in the Tabernacle; for example, when a
miscalculation was made regarding the attendees or when groups show up
right after the Mass commenced - as it happens in places like Fatima,
Lourdes, etc. That is not a problem at all. As a matter of fact, such
is the main purpose of having a few consecrated hosts in the Tabernacle.
Anyone can spot when there is a
problem. If most of the communion being
offered is from the Tabernacle as a matter of
there is a problem. Avoid
A properly consecrated host is truly
the Bread from Heaven and it truly
nourishment for the soul. It is indeed a true Gift from Heaven. Avoid
If just a few hosts are needed to make up a
shortfall of host consecrated at that Mass, that is perfectly all
To which we add today: As we have expressed elsewhere, God has revealed
to miguel what transpires in the transubstantiation and, based on that
priviledged knowledge we assure you that when one is consuming a host
"consecrated in another Mass" one
may be consuming something else
besides just plain and unconsecrated host. Something that could be
Once again we repeat: We call this to the attention of the faithful and
encourage them not to consume
the hosts "consecrated" at some unspecified "Mass". Look for a parish
in your area where: (a) the consecration is done correctly; and (b)
where the host that you are given was consecrated in that Mass.
My hands are washed of this matter too. As the saying goes - One can take the horse to water but one
cannot make the horse drink it.
If any of our readers insist in consuming those hosts which are
normally consecrated in "another Mass" he/she is on his/her own - just
as the virgins with no oil for their lamps.

Per your recommendation, I have reviewed, and pondered at length,
upon the contents of the "Matrimony" (1)

I had read both documents some time ago. However, rereading them
again in light of my questions, they had a much greater impact on me.
You want me to let you know if, once I've read said documents, I

The Dominus Iesus
crystal clear and from my perspective,
it cannot be improved upon.
Pertaining to the Matrimony
document - Would you consider adding
information pertaining to Catholic/non-Catholic marriages?
I would very much appreciate this, as I'm still not sure what the
answers are to some of my questions concerning them.
As it is always with you -
an Excellent question! which justly clamors for an answer.
Just as we were reminded in yesterday's Mass (3)
we do not need elaborate
rituals and/or fancy surroundings to make a commitment before God.
If a man and a woman (tragically, now-a-days one has to be this
specific!) of sound mind and
make a lifelong commitment before God, with the knowledge and
understanding of all that it entails (5)
- "Until death do us
part" - it does not matter whether the couple is Jewish or
Christian or Muslim or any combination thereof.
The fact that God is non denominational may come to a great surprise to
many - bu He Is! This, however, does not mean that there is Salvation
Christ. Christ Is indeed the Messiah and the only Way back to the Father
When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he
exclaimed, “Truly, the LORD is in this spot, although I did not know
solemn wonder he cried out: “How awesome is this shrine! This is
nothing else but an abode of God,
that is the gateway to heaven!”
the next morning Jacob took the stone that he had put under his head,
set it up as a memorial stone, and poured oil on top of it. He called
the site Bethel, whereas the former name of the town had been Luz.
(4) Sound mind and body : An
to alcohol and/or drugs and/or sex and/or gambling IS NOT of sound mind
and body until the
addiction has been overcome. An individual who has
had a severe psychological trauma IS NOT of sound mind and body until
the trauma has been overcome.
(5) With full knowledge and
understanding of all that it entails : That "until death do
us part" is not just a cute phrase during the marriage ceremony; it is
a commitment to which God will hold one to if of sound mind and body.

From (Mrs.) LC @ US
Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my
question pertaining to Catholic/non-Catholic marriages.
What I really appreciated was your specific wordage pertaining to what
“of sound mind and body” actually means. That spoke volumes to
Appreciated as well was Mr. JM's letter and your response,
pertaining to Hosts which supposedly have been consecrated at Masses
other than the one being attended, etc.
I have questions. Yes, more questions! Sorry! They
keep coming to mind, and they don't go away until I bring them to your
attention. This time, they pertain to Spiritual Communions.
1.) When having
doubts about the priest performing the Act of Transubstantiation
properly, as well as doubts pertaining to reserved Hosts in the
Tabernacle actually being Jesus, how spiritually benefiting is it
to make a Spiritual Communion, in addition to receiving the Host?
2.) Or should one refrain from receiving the Host
altogether and simply make a Spiritual Communion?
3.) Does a Spiritual Communion have the same merits
as actually receiving Jesus in Holy Communion?
I hope I have worded these questions clearly.
Should you have the time and the inclination to respond, it would be
very much appreciated.
In Jesus’ Holy Name,
We are happy to hear
that we were able to serve you - and hopefully - also the "silent
majority" of our readers.
We will answer your three questions as simply as possible:
(a) We do not recommend the
consumption of a host allegedly consecrated at some other Mass.
(b) If attending a Mass where the majority of the hosts have not been
consecrated in that same Mass, make a Spiritual Communion.
(c) No. The Spiritual Communion does not have the same power
consuming a truly consecrated host, but in a situation as mentioned in
(b) above, it is far better than no communion at all.
We pray that the above has been clear enough and will help many.
As most are probably unaware.....
due to the endemic manipulation of the news reports, the second economy
of the world - that of the People's Republic of China - has been

The Shenzhen market, which has more tech companies and is often
compared to America's Nasdaq index, is down 41% over the same period.

China's stock markets
have now lost $3.25 trillion. To
put that in perspective, that's more
than the size of France's entire stock market and about 60% of Japan's

That is why gold has dropped 1.5% in the last 30 days, instead of
increasing. In a real panic - "panic" defined as out of control of the
"World Masters" - gold would significantly increase.
Why did the gold price drop then? The few (and ignorant of the real
market forces) investors who have been caught in the European and
Oriental market swings are dumping their gold holdings to cover what
they lost in the stock market
As an interesting aside.... For the year 2014, the GDP of the State of
California was 2.3 trillions of U.S. dollars, which is almost as great
as the GDP of France, equal to that of India and greater than those of

In a very legitimate publication there was a very good article about
identity theft, etc. One of the items touched on by that article was
having one's email address stolen. They provided a link to a world wide
service which would let one know if your e-mail address has been
When we visited the main page of that service - with all of it looking
professional - one could enter one's e-mail address and they would
check their records to see if that address had been compromised. After
a brief moment they inform the inquirer that "all is clear" and
immediately ask if one desires to have one's address regularly
monitored, for free, of course!
We decided to check them out and expressed our desire to have our

your e-mail (logically), your name (logically) and your e-mail password (WHAT!?!?) .
To monitor the fraudulent use of your e-mail address no one needs your

list has not been compromised, enter your own e-mail address in your
list of contacts. If hackers steal your contacts' list and sell
it, you will start receiving e-mails from those who stole your e-mail
identity. This technique is even more secure if you have a second

A day later,
Resgui walked calmly though the Imperial Marhaba beach hotel on
Tunisia’s Mediterranean coast opening
fire with a Kalashnikov, and in more than five minutes slaughtered 39
foreign tourists in the name of Islamic State.
What we see in this situation - something
that most will never understand - is that one of this young man's

what sincere prayer can achieve.
A more powerful and impacting reminder
than this true story
on July 14th,
From (Mrs.) PD @ US
It is interesting to note the beginning and ending dates for
the Jade Helm 15 federal military exercises which have conspiracy
theorists (but also the Texas government and population) concerned.
The first day of the operation has been set at July 13th, the
anniversary of the
revelation of the
Secret of Fatima
, while others report a starting date on July 15th
a day before the
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel feast day - July 16th. In either case the
symbolism is impacting.
On July 13, Islam observed Lailat al
Qadr, the Night of Power, which marks the night in which the Qur'an was
first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad by Allah.
On July 17 Ramadan ends - when Muslims
celebrate the end of fasting and thank Allah for His help with their
month-long act of self-control.
The military exercise is scheduled to end on September 15th.
One day after the also
apocalyptically symbolic Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross and
coinciding with the end of Rosh Hashanah, a most important Jewish
Holiday, which began at sunset on September 13, 2015.
Sandwiched between the beginning and end dates we have August 6th - the
the Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ and August 15th - the
Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Coincidence? Time will tell, but it looks like the "coincidences"
associated with World
and II dates
as you have pointed out in a document.
Thank you for
pointing this out to our readers.
From (Mr.) JM @ US
[the following are excerpts from two letters from Mr. JM]
(a) Did at some point several years ago
in your archives discuss the merits of attending Mass on
television/internet or some other similar site and, with sincere
intentions of making a spiritual Communion, gain some merit with Heaven
for that effort?
(b) When the "custom" of bringing forth
'reserved hosts' shows up at parish after parish after parish (here in
the Charlotte area- I have attended Mass at at least six within
geographical approximation of my home plus about (15) miles it become a
real struggle to withhold intent from this practice now becoming a
I have to be careful reading my human nature into this but I have to
think this is no accident: someone from the Diocese has left
"suggestions" with the parishes that this practice is perfectly
acceptable - even to the point of encouragement... even to the point of
specific "instruction" to do it like we say to.
Thank you for yet another
opportunity to address these matters.
(a) Yes, we did recommend participating in live on-line Masses and
making the spiritual Communion. We do so again, with more urgency than
Here are four sources that you may want to explore. All of the offer
live Masses on line.
(b) We have no choice but to believe that the "hosts consecrated in
another Mass" trick has come all the way from the Vatican. We have seen
ample examples in the U.S., Portugal and Spain - which are the only
countries which we have frequented in the last 24 years.
If you add the fact that the offering of hosts which have been
consecrated in "other Masses" - on a routine basis - is contrary to the
official instructions, the suspicion increases tenfold.
Regarding the errors during the Transubstantiation procedure that we
have discussed in
our document on
whether the key portion of the transubstantiation is the imposition of
hands or the pronouncing of
words over the species, unless
both parts of the formula are used, in many Masses of today,
most hosts given as communion were not consecrated even if they were
not taken out of the Tabernacle claiming that they had been consecrated
in another Mass.
This aberration has been frequently
observed in the United States as
well as in Portugal and Spain. Including internationally known
Sanctuaries, as well as in small towns and in big cities alike.
Examples observed since 1991:
(but not limited to):
1. The Sanctuary of Nazaré, Portugal.
2. The Patriarchate of Lisbon, Portugal.
3. The Dioceses of Leiria-Fátima and
4. The Dioceses of Ciudad Rodrigo and
5. The Dioceses of Galveston-Houston and
Brownsville, Texas, U.S.A.
We believe that we have now exhausted this topic and pray that is has
been done clearly enough for all to understand.
In the meantime... millions
more Americans were hit by government personnel data hack. (1)
breaches at the U.S. government's personnel management agency by
hackers, with suspicions centering on China, involves millions more
people than previously estimated, U.S. officials said last Thursday.
The Office of Personnel Management
(OPM) said data stolen from its computer networks included Social Security numbers
and other sensitive information on 21.5 million people who have
undergone background checks for security clearances.
That is in addition to data on about
4.2 million current and former federal workers that was stolen in what
the OPM called a "separate but related" hacking incident. Because many
people were affected by both hacks, a total of 22.1 million people
were affected, or almost 7 percent of the U.S. population.
Oh, yes..... the security of it all! Without Divine protection we are
as safe and secure as a snowball in hell!
have stumbled upon two of our past
one published fourteen years
ago (twelve days
after the tragic events of
9-11) exposing in detail satan's plan, and the other, published nine
years ago, in which we announced
and confirmed that non consecrated hosts were being given to the
faithful as a matter of course.
As we read them again we
realized the close relationship between the contents
of both documents. We
strongly recommend their careful review. It will help the reader better

Pertaining to questions coming to mind... They come
"out of nowhere" and usually when I am in prayer. That's a sure
indicator that I need to pay attention and to continue to pray for
And it really is true that they don't go away until I bring them to
your attention. They "stay" until you give a response. Once
that response is given, the questions disappear from my mind. The
answers, however, remain. They don't go away.
They fill me with peace.
Also, I know without a doubt, that your responses to these
questions will provide valuable counsel not only to me, but to those
countless others whom you refer to as "the silent
majority". In my heart, I know this.
Many of the magnificent
revelations which God has Graced

about once a question is
Whether m de P poses the question or someone pose the questions to us.
We cannot even remember the number of times times when the following
happens in conversation (personal or phone) or through an e-mail.
Question: What about this or that? or How is it
possible that....? or What did Jesus mean when He said....?
or similar questions
m de P immediate response/thought may be: "At this point I have no
idea" or "I do not know".
Maybe a minute or less goes by and....
m de P will say/think: "Oh, yes; now I know. It is ....."
The proverbial bottom line is that m de P may learn the information
transmitting it to someone else.
Incidentally - m de P may completely forget the information later on.
In computer terms - it works as follows:
When the question is asked, m de
P automatically links to "an external disk" which has the information,
the Heavenly Google equivalent searches for the answer, downloads it
to m de P's RAM (Rapid Access Memory - as computers have), he
transmits it and then, as new info comes into his RAM, the information
is "written over", and then forgotten.... until needed again at which
time the external disk is accessed again.... etc., etc.
We are not joking! That is as close as we can explain in human
what takes place.
Thank you for the opportunity to share this interesting (even to us!)
mechanism with other list members.
Therefore, serious inquiries are welcome as long as the sender does not
expect us to immediately reply. Keep in mind, m de P has a 2.5 hr

originally the Clairvaux valley, from which the 'Clairvaux' of
Bernard's name came from, was called Val d'Absinthe (Wormwoods valley).
According to Wikipedia:
Bernard of Clairvaux, O.Cist (1090 –
August 20, 1153) was a French abbot and the primary builder of the
reforming Cistercian order.
After the death of his mother, Bernard sought admission into the
Cistercian order. "Three years later, he was sent to found a new abbey
at an isolated clearing in a glen known as the Val d'Absinthe,
about 15 km southeast of Bar-sur-Aube.
According to tradition, Bernard founded the monastery on 25 June 1115,
naming it Claire
Vallée, which evolved into Clairvaux. In the year 1128,
Bernard assisted at the Council of Troyes, at which he traced the
outlines of the Rule of the Knights Templar, who soon became the ideal
of Christian nobility.
As we have shown regarding the meaning of the term 'wormwood' (1)
, Bernard's name could be
interpreted as: Bernard, the Bitter

Amazing, simply amazing!
document was written by Bernard to his friend Hugh
de Payens, the Grand Master and co-founder of the Knights Templar.
Bernard and de Payens also wrote the Latin Rule to govern the Knights.
Bernard condemns secular war and knighthood, while praising "Christian"
war and knighthood. This document from Bernard of Clairvaux was quoted
(accurately, as it turns out) in a dreadful 2006 novel, The Templar
Legacy, by Steve Barry.

the level of denial an individual lives in is inversely proportional

The less faith an individual has in God and in His Word - Jesus Christ
- the greater his/her level of denial must be to be able to survive in

Therefore, those who live in the flesh (no matter how

The manipulators of the masses know this and, with impunity, lie about
what was is really behind the scenes. That lie becomes the "lifesaver"

peace". As you can see - it is "an easy sell", as
the saying goes.
Those who have, and live, the faith they profess act differently. When

during Mass. However, before giving them for communion, he opens the
tabernacle, takes out a large chalice - which already contains some
and places the hosts just consecrated in this particular Mass inside
it. Then, from
that chalice he takes the hosts given in communion.
Is this correct?
A. Yes, indeed it is. In this manner, if the priest misjudged
the number of hosts needed for that particular Mass he does not have to
interrupt the communion process to go back to the Tabernacle for more
If he did not consecrate enough hosts, he will then use some that were
already in the chalice which he is holding at the time. Conversely, if
he consecrated more hosts than needed, the extras will remain in the

We have seen that done in various places and believe that it is an
excellent way to avoid any disruption during communion.

The question has arisen about the relative effect/power of prayer as a
function of the level of Graces an individual has and/or the faculties
granted to him.
Did the prayers of John the Baptist have more power than those of his
If John prayed for an intention, would it be beneficial that his
also prayed for the same intention? Yes!
Allow us to explain.
Prayers accrue merits to be applied to secure what is being sought.
Think of it as if what is being sought has a price in dollars and
cents. That means that enough "dollars and cents" have to be produced
for God granting the request made.
Say that John's prayers are worth $1.50 and what is being sought
"costs" $4.50. In that case, John will have to offer three prayer units
(3 x $1.50) before God will schedule the granting of what is being
sought. We say "schedule" meaning that: The "price" requirement has
been met but now God will see that it is granted at the most perfect
time - thus schedule.
Now then, if the prayers of John's followers are worth $0.50 each and
he inspires six of them to pray for the same intention, the "cost" of
what is being sought will be covered sooner ($1.50 + 6 x $0.50 = $4.50)
than if John had been praying for that intention alone.
Please note: We are speaking of prayers and not faculties. Everyone can
pray but special faculties are required for executing the
transubstantiation of bread and wine, as just one example of many

we stated that:
The full power of evil on earth is
limited to "42 months": a brief time.
15. For a brief time, the whole world will be
in the power of the devil and his servants, represented by the dragon,
the beast, and the false prophet (Revelation 13:1-18).
specifies a limited time for the full power of the devil (Revelation
12:12): "a time, two times,
and half a time" (Daniel 12:7), 42 months (Revelation 11:2;
Revelation 13:5), or "a
year, and twice a year, and half a year" (Revelation
12:14), or 1,260 days.
this represents a brief time – but they may also refer to a time of
(literally) 42 months and 1,260 days, respectively. (Revelation
11:3; Revelation 12:6).
Considering the role "Pope" Francis is fulfilling we took a quick
look at some dates and see if there was a correlation.
It turned out the Bergoglio was elected as "Pope" Francis on March 13,
2013. Let's assume that his time in power is indeed 42 months - 3.5
To our amazement the 42 months of Francis "Papacy" are up on September
13, 2016.... the eve of September 14th, The Triumph of the Cross or, if

I recently saw a video in You Tube entitled, "If I were the

If I were the Devil . . .
I mean, if I were the Prince of
Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in
darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of
its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest
apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over
the United States. I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the
wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: "Do
as you please." "Do as you please."
To the young, I would whisper, "The
Bible is a myth." I would convince them that man created God
instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is
good, and what is good is "square". In the ears of the young
I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good
for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in
patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I
would teach them to say after me: "Our Father, which art in Washington"
. . .
If I were the devil, I'd educate
authors in how to make lurid
literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an
uninteresting. I'd threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa.
And then, if I were the devil, I'd get organized. I'd infiltrate unions
and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work
I'd peddle narcotics to whom I could.
I'd sell alcohol to
ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I'd tranquilize the rest with
pills. If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine yound
intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild.
I would designate an athiest to front for me before the highest courts
in the land and I would get preachers to say "she's right." With
flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I
construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and thus, I
evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then
from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would
substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because
that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons but not
wise enough to control them.
If I were Satan, I'd make the symbol
of Easter an egg, and the
symbol of Christmas, a bottle. If I were the devil, I would take
those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed
the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force
everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting
children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps.
In other words, if I were Satan, I'd just keep on doing what he's doing.

The amount of bogus (or
seriously distorted), but serious looking, on-line news has gotten out
of hand. Some of it is outright satire, although many of the readers do
not know it is. Others are "official" disinformation centers. Because
an experience we had yesterday we looked into this issue further and
found a list of the most popular potentially bogus news outlets. Some
of them we have known about in the past, others are new to us.
In any case, we suggest that before you believe, and much less
circulate, any startling news posted in the following outlets, make
sure that you have confirmed it elsewhere as true.

It is always interesting and rewarding
to note the
between the Old and New Testaments.
In a recent Mass reading we read about
an exchange between King Solomon and God - 1 Kings 3:5-15.
In such exchange God tells Solomon to "Ask
for whatever you want me to give you." Solomon responds: "...give your servant a discerning heart to
govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong"
to which God responds: "I will do
what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so
that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever
be. Moreover, I will give
you what you have not asked for - both wealth and honor - so that in
your lifetime you will have no equal among kings."
Now, fast forward to the time of Jesus - in concrete Matthew 6:25- 33
where we hear from God "...seek first
his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given
to you as well" with all 'these things' being material goods.
That is exactly what we learned from the Solomon-God exchange. Solomon
in all sincerity sought the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and
God gave Him every imaginable material good that were compatible with
his position - King of Israel.
It is also interesting and rewarding to
note the coherence between the
Old Testaments and today's problems/tendencies.
In another Mass we read, also from the
Old Testament [Exodus 32], about Moses coming down from the mountain
with the Tablets and finding Israel adoring a golden calf that Aaron,
their priest, had made for them. What was Aaron's excuse?
not be angry, my lord," Aaron answered. "You know how prone these
people are to evil. They
said to me, ‘Make us gods who will go before
us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we
know what has happened to him.’ So I told them, ‘Whoever has any
jewelry, take it off.’ Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into
the fire, and out came this calf!"
Aaron just contravened the Law of God just because the people
asked/pressured him to do so.
Fast forward to the mid 20th through beginning 21st centuries and we
see how the "priesthood" is adjusting the Catholic Faith to please
today's Israelite equivalents.

The End of These Times will make more sense to you now.
If you are going to be seating on the "front row of the

Have you heard that...
the Satanic Temple unveiled goat-headed statue in Detroit?
A crowd of several hundred gathered
Saturday night to see Detroit’s newest resident: A 9-foot, 2,000-pound
statue of a goat-headed occult idol named Baphomet.
The Satanic Temple unveiled the bronze figure to an estimated 700
attendees at an undisclosed location. The group’s initial venue
canceled after local religious groups protested.
The statue will now be stored out of public view until the Temple can
find it a permanent home. The
group hopes to display it at the Arkansas State Capitol, next to a
monument of the Ten Commandments.
Why should we be surprised....
when there are two sites who commercially
over 37 million paying clients?
Hackers claim to have personal details
of more than 37 million cheating spouses on dating website Ashley
Madison and have threatened to release nude photos and sexual fantasies
of the site's clients unless it is shut down, blog KrebsOnSecurity
Ashley Madison's Canadian parent, Avid Life Media, confirmed the breach
on its systems and said it had since secured its site and was working
with law enforcement agencies to try to trace those behind the attack.
The hackers, who call themselves The Impact Team, leaked snippets of
the compromised data online and warned they would release customers'
real names, profiles, nude photos, credit card details and "secret
sexual fantasies" unless their demands were met, Krebs said.
The hackers demanded the closure of another of Avid Life Media's
sites, sugar-daddy site "Established Men", but did not target
the company's "CougarLife"
site, which caters for women members looking for "a young stud".
The breach comes about two months after dating site Adult FriendFinder was
compromised. That site has an estimated 64 million members.
At least the satanists openly claim their
inclination; however, we are sure that most of those 37 + 64 = 101
million individuals, if asked as part of a poll, about their religious
belief they would say that they believe in God and most would claim
Christianity as their faith.
It is OUR responsibility to pray for the
conversion of those satanists as well as for adulterers, etc.

Lately, I've been really bothered by the downright
indecent and offensive attire of far too many attending Holy
Mass. It's so much worse during the summer months.
Women/girls in particular are guilty of this.
Nothing is said about this terrible affront to the Lord from the
pulpit. Nothing. Just a deafening silence.
I even, very selfishly, find myself wishing those who dress so
indecently would stay home so as not to be the source of so much
unwanted distractions during Holy Mass.
The best solution would be to sit in the front pew so as not to be so
distracted, but my husband insists on our sitting in the last pew at
the back of the church. Believe me, from that vantage point, much
is seen that is very distracting and disturbing.
How does the Lord feel about all of this, I wonder?
Also, 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.
Thank you for your kind
and prayers - they are greatly appreciated.
Regarding the Mass "dress code"... First of all - We have never heard
from the pulpit or read the reason why modesty in dress is a must in a
Church setting, therefore we cannot expect the tragically disoriented
faithful to exercise any restraint. Their thinking/logic - bless their
hearts - is that "God knows how they look even naked so their immodest
attire could not certainly offend Him."
In reality it is far more offensive to God that those who live off the
Gospel (and not by
Gospel) - the Administrators of the faith - do
not teach His children the fundamentals of modest attire - in and out
the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be
beaten with few blows. From
everyone who has been given much, much will
be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much
more will be asked. [Luke 12:48]
In case some our readers may not remember our explaining why modesty in
dressing is important ....
Physical attraction is embedded in our DNA, otherwise we would not mate
and reproduce. Therefore, it is an automatic response - for males and
females - to look when too much attractive flesh is uncovered or
accentuated. This is just a distraction if stopped immediately but, it
will turn into a sin if the viewer's imagination enters into action.
The only way to avoid this situation for a normal and healthy human
being is to dress in a manner which is appropriate for the public place
one will be in. Even beach ware can be moral and immoral
Tragically, women - young and not so young - and men, mostly young,
dress today in a manner that is difficult to tell them apart from sex
workers - a.k.a. prostitutes.
If many of them would realize that such dress and/or behavior will only
attract trash - solely interested in a brief fling - and that no
member of the opposite sex would get close to them, they would not do
We will address the meaning "signal graces" in another post.
In the meantime.....
in a recent issue (1)
of Spain's TIME Magazine equivalent - TIEMPO - there
was six page article dedicated to the glorification of prostitution -
male and female. The article is launched with the following
chose to work in the sex industry voluntarily and proudly defend
their profession. They represent, according the the UN, 85% of the
prostitutes although their voices are rarely heard.
Then there are interviews with some of the workers where the
"greatness" of the profession is exalted. We will spare you the details
of the six page spread. However, we would not be surprised if they
will soon organize a yearly "Prostitute Pride Parade" .
This, of course, is in "The Land of the Opus Dei" and not a peep from
them was heard about the heavy handed promotion of prostitution,

reality of Opus Dei
, they may just have some "difficulties" as the

While on the Opus Dei subject....
a biography was released
first quarter of 1975 of Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei, while
he was still alive. (1)
The author had been working on this
since the late sixties, when "the Work" acquired a leading role in the
political development of Spain.
The right leaning Spanish governments have been called "homogeneous
government" because they were/are composed of persons
belonging to Opus Dei or were, at least, as it was called, "in its
orbit." The author's intent was to study the life and personality of
the Father and Founder with the hope that this might shed some light on
the behavior of his "children" and of "the Work" as a whole.
It is difficult to find in the Church another Institute, Order or
Association of the Faithful in which the influence of the founder was
as decisive as in the Opus Dei. Its members are convinced that the
founding principle arises in the mind of their "Father" by divine
inspiration. Nothing he says or does is discussed and all his actions,
by trivial they may be, are significant.
The "children" always carry a picture of him in his wallet... in life,
he communicated with them through a circular signed with his Baptismal
name - Mariano.
His public appearances were always well attended and with shouts of
"Father, Father, Father".
People over the years have visited the crypt (2) in the Roman palace on
Bruno Buozzi Street, General Headquarters of Opus Dei, where his
remains lie. It is said that those responsible for the work force
visitors to move on their knees from the door of the crypt to the dark
