A special friend of mine has a daughter who had an abortion.
She is troubled by her decision. I, personally, am pro-life.
Do you have any suggestions how I may help assuage her grief?
An abortion is a most
grave act but, the greatest sin
committed by man is but a grain of sand compared with the Mercy of God
If the young lady is truly contrite, what He says to her is:
Go and sin no more
When He made that statement He was speaking to an adulteress and what
He meant was that she should not commit adultery again. Obviously, the
"not committing sin", in global terms, is an impossibility for any
human. There is "sin" and there is "sin" and "Go and sin no more
" refers to the
truly gravest sins, but also strive to minimize all others.
Therefore - if she is truly sorry and will not do it again, she can
claim His Mercy and she will be forgiven and finally be at peace.
God cannot resist a truly
sorrowful and contrite heart
Taking it one step further - when she crosses the veil and has earned
Paradise through her choices in Time, she will have the joy of meeting
face her aborted child and, since her grievous sin was forgiven, they
will be able to "make up for lost time" on Earth.
My sincere prayers accompany her. If she accepts and acts upon what we
have said, she will feel the peace returning to her soul.

Hawking claims to know
that God does not exist?
In a fascinating article, we learn what
happens when a scientist wastes his God given talent turning his
scientific pursuits into seeking to do away with God. Dominique
Mosbergen wrote Stephen Hawking Says 'There Is No God,' Confirms He's
An Atheist (Huffington Post, September 25, 2014 AD) wherein she notes:
Stephen Hawking says he's an atheist,
arguing that science offers a "more convincing explanation" for the
origins of the universe and that the miracles of religion "aren't
compatible" with scientific fact.
Instantly, we see that Stephen Hawking, the very scientist who claimed
that philosophy (and now also apparently theology) is dead; relies on
philosophy and fails at it. He claims that science offers a
"more convincing" cosmogony but recall that his ultimate answer, thus
far, is that if you have gravity; the universe can arise therefrom.
Hawking elucidated, "Before we understood science, it was natural to
believe that God created the universe, but now science offers a more

of suffering and physical misery. Seldom a soul destined to hell
is encased in a body which must endure so much suffering through Time.
Therefore - the probability that His soul is destined for Heaven is
high. Now then, if with all the suffering of his life he has not
"heard" God yet, and he is destined for Heaven, I shudder to think
in store for him
so that he finally
It was precisely a few hours before we read the above news report that
telling a collaborator that: Based on my awareness of reality, if I
were an atheist because no one had ever told me about God, I would
declare, without a doubt, the existence of some supreme being, who is
above all and rules all.
That is how absolutely obvious God is those who have Eyes to See and
Ears to Hear, and who are not afraid
to see all that must be seen
hear all that must be heard
- not day in and day out, but minute in and minute out!
The net result of his clear and unequivocal statement is that we must
consider any scientific postulate emanating from Hawking flawed until
proven true - were that possible. But, at this point, Hawking's
"science" is the least of our concern. It is the state of his soul that
we must focus in.
Let us not forget to pray for his conversion - it is our duty and responsibility

asking of us
for 175 years, and Jesus told us

, but mostly to no avail.
on October 16th,
2014 [Feast of Mary's Purity and Eighth Day
of Assembly (Judaism)]
In the first reading of the
we offered on October 15th, we found the exact same messages that
we have been repeating for years.
(a) Do not sin counting on Mercy for
there will be none under such conditions.
(b) Do not expect immediate results for living as God Wills that we do.
The reward is coming but only in accordance to His timetable.
(c) Do not place your trust in material possessions.
(d) Do not act on "hunches" or "inspirations" which are contrary to
Divine Law, no matter how "genuine" they feel.
(e) Do not think that you will "get away with murder". No matter what -
Justice will catch up with you. It may not be Civil Justice but Divine
Justice always will.
It was indeed consoling and reassuring reminder. The reading was
from Ecclesiasticus (Sirach) 5:1-10
not thy heart upon unjust possessions, and say not: I have enough to
live on: for it shall be of no service in the time of vengeance and
Follow not in thy strength the
desires of thy heart:
And say not: How mighty am I? and Who
shall bring me under for my deeds? for God will surely take revenge.
Say not: I have sinned, and whet harm hath befallen me? for the most
High is a patient rewarder.
Be not without fear about sin
forgiven, and add not sin upon sin: And say not: The mercy of the Lord
is great, he will have mercy on the multitude of my sins. For mercy and
wrath quickly come from him, and his wrath looketh upon sinners.
Delay not to be converted to the
Lord, and defer it not from day to day. For his wrath shall come on a
sudden, and in the time of vengeance he will destroy thee. Be not
anxious for goods unjustly gotten: for they shall not profit thee in
the day of calamity and revenge.
Of course, as we have pointed out in the past, God, Who is Love
does not "take revenge" or is "wrathful". Those are figures of speech
to help the stiff necked humans understand the messages. Yes, the
consequences of our misdeeds are indeed terrible - in proportion to how
grave they were - however, just as we cannot call the Law of Gravity
vengeful when we fall and break a bone, we cannot call God vengeful
and wrathful when the consequences of breaking Divine Law result in
great harm to us. On the

hopes that we "respond to His megaphone" and come back to Him.

and avoid hell or purgatory until the

was viewed as 'demon child'? (1)
Magician Dynamo has revealed that
children at his school
thought he was a "demon child" because of a trick he did.
The Yorkshire-born performer, real name Steven Frayne, said the rumour
started after he began doing his first stunt, taught to him by his
grandfather to help him deal with bullies.
"They started spreading
rumours that I was a demon child, so it worked in a way, it got
people to leave me alone," he told the paper.

following using social media and counts David Beckham, Will Smith, Jay
Z and Sir Paul McCartney amongst his fans
Interesting, isn't it? Why demonic and not
In the same Mass quoted
according to Mark was from the end of chapter 9:
if thy hand scandalize thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter
into life, maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into
unquenchable fire: Where... the fire is not extinguished. And if thy
foot scandalize thee, cut it off. It is better for thee to enter lame
into life everlasting, than having two feet, to be cast into the hell
of unquenchable fire: Where.... the fire is not extinguished.
And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck
it out. It is better for thee with one eye to enter into the kingdom of
God, than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire:
Tragically, religious fanatics of all faiths have used such teaching,
or similar ones, to commit demonic atrocities. It is overwhelmingly
obvious that Jesus was using those statements in a completely symbolic

The “Johannine Prayer” that Never Really Was (1)
If one had consciously set out to create a prayer that would sum up in
its words the repentance of post-Shoah Christianity - an invocation
that would communicate the contrition of Jesus' followers for centuries
of anti-Semitic words and actions - one could hardly have expressed
that intention so eloquently or with such evident, broken-hearted
passion as in the following lines attributed to Pope John XXIII:
We recognize today
That many centuries of blindness
Have veiled our eyes,
So that we no longer see the beauty of your Chosen People
And no longer recognize the features
Of our firstborn brother.
We know now that the mark of Cain is on our forehead.
Over the course of centuries our brother Abel
Has lain in blood we have spilled
Because we forgot your love.
Forgive us for the curse Which we unjustly placed on the name of the
Forgive us For crucifying you a second time,
For we knew not what we were doing ... (2)
The unfortunate fact, however, which has become more and more clear
with the passing years, is that this beautiful and stirring prayer is
not, in fact, from the pen (or even the mind) of John XXIII, as many
authors have maintained (and continue to assert).
It is, sadly, a
forgery, a literary invention, and recent research seems quite certain
as to its original source.

A sweet word multiplieth friends, and appeaseth enemies, and a gracious
tongue in a good man aboundeth.
 Be in peace with many, but
let one of a thousand be thy counsellor.
 If thou wouldst get a friend, try him before thou takest him, and
do not credit him easily.
 For there is a friend for
his own occasion, and he will not abide in the day of thy trouble.

turneth to enmity; and there is a friend that will disclose hatred and
strife and reproaches.
 And there is a friend a

among them of thy household.
 If he humble himself
before thee, and hide himself from thy face, thou shalt have unanimous
friendship for good.
 Separate thyself from thy
enemies, and take heed of thy friends.
 A faithful friend is a
strong defence: and he that hath found him, hath found a treasure.

reality which, as we have amply shown, does not take away an ounce of

The Coherence of the Holy

In the Gospel reading of the Feast of St. Luke [Luke 10:1.9] we read:
5 When you enter a
house, first say, 'Peace to this house.' 6 If someone who promotes
peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to
you. 7 Stay there, eating
and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his
wages. Do not move around from house to house. 8 When you enter a town
and are welcomed, eat what
is offered to you. 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them,
'The kingdom of God has come near to you.'
Let us now fast forward to the Acts of the Apostles, chapter 11....
Starting from the beginning, Peter told them the whole story: 5 I was
in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision. I saw
something like a large sheet being let down from heaven by its four
corners, and it came down to where I was. 6 I looked into it and saw
four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, reptiles and birds. 7 Then I heard a voice telling me,
'Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.' 8 I replied, 'Surely not, Lord!
Nothing impure or unclean has ever entered my mouth.'
9 The voice spoke from heaven a
second time, 'Do not call
anything impure that God has made clean.' 10 This happened
three times, and then it was all pulled up to heaven again.
As you may have already noticed Jesus had already approved all food
long before Peter had the vision in Joppa.

B Times Reports

We have received a letter from a long time reader in response to our
concern reagrding the "tough times" he alluded of
going through in a private communication to us. Because of our respect
to his privacy we will not
publish his letter, however, for his benefit and that of our other
and their list members we will address the situation here in general
70 year old Mr. X's problems are:
(a) In the middle of a bankruptcy
(b) Possibility of losing his homestead - thus a place to live.
(c) Suffering with Lyme disease with it's many and varied
manifestations in the body and mind.
(d) Recently had - and we quote his own words: "a replay of past horrible sins in life".
(e) Barely afford some of the medications needed and unable to afford
other medications needed.
Some of our other readers - and/or those in their lists - may be
experiencing similar physical and spiritual onslaught. The way we see
this - and similar situations - is for what it is: A demonic attack
where satan is "pulling all the stops" in order to break the victim
As we approach the climax of the chastisement-side of the End of
These Times, satan is trying to cause as much harm as he can on the
souls of the Elect. As we have explained before, he cannot cause a soul
to end in hell but he can certainly cause them misery in Time and a
very long stay in Purgatory.
When one find oneself in a similar situation, the first thing one is
made to forget is precisely the first line of defense.
First you must remember that....
heaviest crosses to those He calls His own,
bitterest drops of the chalice are reserved for His friends alone.
blood red drops are precious, and the crosses are all gain,
For Joy is bought
with Sacrifice, and the price of love is Pain.
Then you must remember that.....
Suffering, which is not
(a) to move and/or encourage a
suffering individual to return to the right path; or (b) because
God needs our
suffering, to be used by virtue of the Communion of Saints, to assist
other souls in their redemption, then, it is from satan trying to
drive the individual to despair.
But what is the source/purpose of the trials and suffering? How can we
be sure of it? This is not a problem when we
remember a certain Pearl of Divine
As part of the communications associated with Our Lady of the
Rosary of Fatima the faithful were informed not to seek
additional mortification to offer to God, but to offer/accept any
and all difficulties that we encounter in our daily lives for:
of Jesus, in reparation for the offenses committed against the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
If we make that offering every time (many times a day if necessary)
and we are the victim of any negative event/situation - be it physical,
spiritual, legal, financial, emotional, spiritual - it really does not
matter the reason - (a), (b) or satanic attack - because whatever the situation is
remedy is on its way.
If the source of the misery is satan trying to drive you to despair,
the moment you start converting such misery into a manifestation of
your love for Jesus, acts of reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
and an instrument for the conversion of poor sinners, you have, in
essence, turned the tables on satan and he will be the first one to
make sure that your misery comes to an end. It is just pure
If it is allowed by God for purposes (a) and/or (b), then: (a) ask
to help you see quickly what is what you need to change in your life;
and/or (b) if for the benefits of others, ask Him to sustain you until
he has finished using you as an expiatory victim soul.
Believe me - it is that simple, but only if you believe and follow
the procedure that we have outlined.
Why I am so sure? Because I have lived it and still live it!
Whether bankruptcy, or almost losing my house back in the eighties
because I not even had $140 to make a late mortgage payment, or not
being even able to sleep because of pain, or having a brain tumor/cyst,
as I do, or seeing my children souls intoxicated (1) with the venom their
mother continues to spew even after almost 30 years, God prevails if we
"dance to His music"!
The tune of His music is set by Jesus through John:
one love me, he will keep my
word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and
will make our abode with him. [John 14:23]
In the case of demonic attacks, the remedy could be enhanced
(A) Offer the prayer of St. Michael several times a day with a
slight modification as indicated below highlighted in italic.

the ruin of my soul.

with the following modification:
Instead of making all nine invocations every day, just make a
different invocation every day while offering all other prayers while
changing the pronoun form plural to singular as shown in the following
of praying: By the
intercession of St. Michael the

worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity. Amen!

regarding the Second Coming of Christ?
(Our Lady Speaking to Sister Faustina) "...I gave
the Savior to the world; as for you, you have to speak to the world
about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of
Him who will come, not as a merciful Saviour, but as a just Judge. Oh,
how terrible is that day! Determined is the day of Justice, the day of
Divine wrath. Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still
the time for [granting] mercy. If you keep silent now, you will be
answering for a great number of souls on that terrible day. Fear
nothing. Be faithful to the end...." Notebook II:635
(Our Lord Speaking to Sister
Faustina) "...I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is,
the Feast of My Mercy. ...tell souls about this great mercy of Mine,
because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near." Notebook
(Our Lord Speaking to Sister
Faustina) "...let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It
is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice.
While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My
mercy;..." Notebook II:848
(Our Lord Speaking to Sister
Faustina) "...before I come as the just Judge, I am coming first as
the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be
given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort: All light in the heavens will be
extinguished and there will be great darkness over the whole earth.
Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the
openings where the hands and the feet of the Savior were nailed will
come forth great lights..." Notebook I:83.
There will indeed be a sign but the scenario will be as it was
in Fatima on October 13th. At that time the Sun suddenly
appeared to be
down upon the 70,000 spectators who, filled with panic, dropped to
their knees and started offering the Act of Contrition as well as
pleading for Mercy. In other words, it will not be a long drawn affair
where we can ponder about situation and "try to negotiate with God".
We should encourage everyone not to wait for that moment and start
making amends with God NOW!
Remember, the issue here is not Heaven or Hell. As we have clearly
explained, that has
been determined already
. The issue here is how much
suffering can be averted while still being alive and the length of the
stay in Purgatory. A few days or months in Purgatry cannot be
compared with being in it until the end of the world as one of Lucia's
friends will be. And yes, Purgatory is indeed a reality!
Have you heard that.....
passed a law designed to protect those who correct people deemed to be
acting in an "un-Islamic" way?
Thousands of Iranians took to the
streets of the historic city of Isfahan on Wednesday to protest several
acid attacks on women. The attacks had coincided with the passage of a
law designed to protect those who correct people deemed to be acting in
an "un-Islamic" way.
A local official said on Wednesday that "eight to nine" women had been
attacked over the past three weeks by men on motorcycles who splashed
them with acid in Isfahan.... Some of the women were blinded or
The acid attacks have prompted a heightened resistance to the new law,
which Parliament passed on Sunday. The law is aimed at protecting
citizens who feel compelled to correct those who, in their view, do not adhere to
Iran's strict social laws.
Perhaps such law should be first applied on
those passing it since the law is indeed un-Islamic. They are making
citizen judge and executioner of
their fanatic interpretation
If they passed a law determining the length of the skirt of a woman, or
prohibiting them to wear sleeveless tops or wear closed toe shoe and,
subject them to a fine properly assesed by local recognized authorities
for their violation, we would not have a problem with that. That is
their country and their ruling faith, but this free-for-all "law" is a
disgrace and stains the Holy Qur'an.
We wonder how they would react if the Western countries would pass a
law expelling - regardless
anyone who would act in an "un-Western" way?

Secretive X-37B Military Space Plane Landed in California Last Week? (1)
The U.S. Air Force's
mysterious X-37B space plane will return to Earth this week - possibly
as early as Tuesday - after
22 months in orbit on a secret mission.
The robotic X-37B space plane, also known as the Orbital
Test Vehicle, landed at the Vandenberg Air Force Base in
California..... As of
October 12, the X-37B mini-shuttle has been in orbit since December
2012 and racked up a record-shattering 671 days in space.
The Air Force has two X-37B space planes in its fleet and
has been flying them on secret missions since 2010. But the exact purpose of those flights
have been shrouded in secrecy.
The mission in orbit now, called Orbital Test Vehicle 3
(OTV-3), launched on Dec. 11, 2012 aboard an Atlas 5 rocket.
We wonder if Edward Snowden has information
on that and, if he does, with whom he has already shared it.
Our point is: After Snowden's behavior, the similar behavior of those
who are still to be discovered
while enjoying top secret clearance and
the free-for-all hacking that exists in our greatly "advanced and
civilized" world today, let us not forget that God IS our ONLY Hope!

the Smartphone radiation detector app
tests are positive? (1)
The popularity of smartphones continues to grow with the availability
of an ever-growing range of applications.
The app, Radioactivity
Counter, is designed to measure a person's exposure to radiation
It claims to accurately
detect the dose in the radiation
per hour (μGy/h) using the phones in-built camera, which is not only
sensitive to visible light, but to higher energy gamma photons.
Finally! A truly
useful app! Thanks be

an internal memo promotes bringing non-citizens to US for Ebola
The State Department denies plan.
A memo obtained by Fox News indicates the Obama administration has been
considering allowing non-American Ebola patients into the U.S. for
– though a State Department official on Tuesday denied
any such plans.
The document was obtained by Fox News from a Capitol Hill source, who
said it is a memo prepared by the State Department. The top of the
marked "sensitive but unclassified – pre-decisional (sic)."
From a scientist's point of view such an idea
From a political point of view, such idea is political suicide.
If this is indeed true we would not be surprised if the Republicans get
majority in both Houses in the next election, effectively
neutralizing the remainder of Mr. Obama's dis-Administration.
