Did you know that..... God confirmed through Noah the "Thou shalt not kill" Law He made known to humans though Cain, (*) long before He gave the Law to Moses?

And God blessed Noah and his sons. And he said to them.... Whosoever shall shed man' s blood, his blood shall be shed: for man was made to the image of God. [Gen 9:6]

_____________________________
(*) And the Lord said .....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 4:15]



Did you know that....
the tie between Russia and China is this close?

The cooperation between China and Russia is of strategic significance and will not be affected by outside factors, a Chinese foreign ministry official said on Wednesday. (1)

"China and Russia are important partners to each other on trade and economic cooperation," Chinese vice Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping said during a news briefing on Premier Li Keqiang's upcoming visit to Germany, Russia, Italy and the UN Food and Agricultural Organization(FAO) headquarters from Oct. 9 to 15.

During his visit to Russia, Li will hold the 19th regular meeting between the two countries's prime ministers with his counterpart Dmitry Medvedev.

On the China-Russia relationship, Cheng said China is the number one trading partner of Russia and Russia is the number nine of China.

Two-way trade reached 89.2 billion U.S. dollars last year, and the two countries plan to raise the volume to 100 billion dollars by 2015 and 200 billion dollars by 2020.

From (Mr.) IW @ US


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?

IW

A.
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. (1)

If the young lady is truly contrite, what He says to her is:

    Go and sin no more [John 8:11]

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 to 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.

Thank you for the opportunity of addressing this issue from a different angle.

Did you know that.... regardless what the authorities say, Ebola spreads in a multitude of unstoppable forms?

The Spanish nurse who contracted it while tending an Ebola patient said that she: "...had apparently told another health worker that she had touched her face with her protective gloves." (1)

One also see all human treating Ebola patients with special suits, head dresses, gloves, etc. since, if they come in contact with them, they may also become infected.

Now then.... what about the flies, gnats, mosquitoes, domesticated animals and wild animals who feed on decaying flesh? Where are their gloves, head dresses, special suits...?

There is an abundance of them in Africa, but there are also present in first world countries.

In other words: The spread of Ebola is unstoppable. The world official's priorities should be that of greater isolation of the countries already well infected, rapid tests and effective treatment. But, as we are fully aware of,  it will only be contained after what it has accomplished (2) what God allowed its spread for.

Did you know that..... Stephen 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 convincing explanation."

miguel de Portugal comments: What a sad and pathetic creature. For me to hear something like that would be as if someone tried to convince me that the Sun really does not exist.

We must pray for his conversion. The life of Mr. Hawking has been one 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 about what additional suffering is in store for him so that he finally "hears" God.

It was precisely a few hours before we read the above news report that I was 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 and 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.

Have you realized that..... what we read in the Book of the Prophet Joel, chapter 2, verses 12-17, is essentially what Mary has been telling anyone who would listen to Her since the early nineteenth century? See for yourself....

Be converted to me with all your heart, in fasting, and in weeping, and in mourning. And rend your hearts, and not your garments, and turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, patient and rich in mercy, and ready to repent of the evil. Who knoweth, but he may return, and forgive, and leave a blessing behind him, sacrifice and libation to the Lord your God?

Blow the trumpet in Sion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly, Gather together the people, sanctify the church, assemble the ancients, gather together the little ones, and them that suck at the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth from his bed, and the bride out of her bride chamber. Between the porch and the altar the priests the Lord' s ministers shall weep, and shall say: Spare, O Lord, spare thy people: and give not thy inheritance to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them.  [Joel 2:12-17]

Compare the above with what Mary has been asking of us for 175 years, and Jesus told us through Sister Faustina, but mostly to no avail.



Published on October 16th, 2014 [Feast of Mary's Purity and Eighth Day of Assembly (Judaism)]

In the first reading of the Mass.... 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

Set 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 darkness.

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 contrary, God will utilize such harm in the hopes that we "respond to His megaphone" and come back to Him.

It would actually be vengeful and wrathful of God if we were not informed of our transgression of Divine Law until it were too late to make the amends necessary and avoid hell or purgatory until the end of the world.

May this help you Evangelize those who come your way trying to justify whatever misdeed they want to justify. The End NEVER justifies the Means.


Did you know that....
Dynamo 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.

Dynamo has built up a huge following using social media and counts David Beckham, Will Smith, Jay Z and Sir Paul McCartney amongst his fans

miguel de Portugal comments: Interesting, isn't it? Why demonic and not angelic?

In the same Mass quoted earlier.... the Gospel 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 manner. When He refers to "enter into life", of course, He is referring Eternal Life, His Everlasting Kingdom wherein our bodies have been glorified. In such state physical handicaps - the loss of an arm or a foot or an eye - do not exist.

What He is telling us is that we must make a concerted effort to deactivate any trait that we may have that would lead us to sin; most specially grave sin.

However, when He said, within the same breath: ...whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me; it were better for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck, and he were cast into the sea. He was not using symbolism.

Although the transgressor will not have a millstone hung around his neck and be pushed into the sea, the final consequences of  "scandalizing one of those little ones that believe in Him" will be worse. That is what He is highlighting.

It seems that the clergy - of any Christian faith - prone to sexually abuse members of their flock, as well as their enabling superiors, missed that part of the New Testament. Actually, the did not. They do not believe in what the preach just for profit.



Have you heard that..... Voiceprints being harvested by the millions? (1)

Over the telephone, in jail and online, a new digital bounty is being harvested: the human voice.

Businesses and governments around the world increasingly are turning to voice biometrics, or voiceprints, to pay pensions, collect taxes, track criminals and replace passwords.

"We sometimes call it the invisible biometric," said Mike Goldgof, an executive at Madrid-based AGNITiO, one of about 10 leading companies in the field.

Those companies have helped enter more than 65 million voiceprints into corporate and government databases, according to Associated Press interviews with dozens of industry representatives and records requests in the United States, Europe and elsewhere.

Dan Miller, an analyst with Opus Research in San Francisco, estimates that the industry's revenue will roughly double from just under $400 million last year to between $730 million and $900 million next year.

Vendors say the timbre of a person's voice is unique in a way similar to the loops and whorls at the tips of someone's fingers.

Did you know that.... Holy Water has been scientifically studied?

The sign of the cross and Orthodox prayer are capable of killing microbes and change the optical properties of water.

Scientists have proved experimentally the miracle-working properties of the sign of the cross and prayer.

‘We have ascertained that the old custom to make a sign of the cross over food and drink before a meal has a profound mystical meaning.... This is a great miracle, which happens literally every day,’ physicist Angelina Malakhovskaya said as cited by the Zhizn newspaper on Friday.

The scientists have verified the impact the Lord’s Prayer and the Orthodox sign of the cross make on pathogenic bacteria. Water samples from various reservoirs - wells, rivers, lakes - were taken for the research.

The experiments were made in such a way as to exclude a possible impact of mental suggestion. The prayer was said by both believer and non-believers, but the number of pathogenic bacteria in various environments with different sets of bacteria still decreased as compared to the reference templates. 

miguel de Portugal comments: Although I certainly believe in the power of prayer and of a blessing, we were somewhat skeptical at the claims made by the article until we read:

The prayer was said by both believer and non-believers, but the number of pathogenic bacteria in various environments with different sets of bacteria still decreased as compared to the reference templates.

The Divine Encouragement published yesterday was already on its way before we read the above report. As you may recall, in our comments we stated:

Isn't it amazing that the Chinese - very quietly and without much saber rattling - are essentially taking over the world?

Divine Law - which is what Jesus has been trying to teach us for almost 2000 years - applies to all of His Creation. Didn't He say: "....your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust." [Matthew 5:45]

Think about it! What if the Chinese are utilizing the sun and the rain better than we are? 

It is amazing how God manages to confirm to His children concepts that may be difficult to grasp by most humans.

Nonetheless.... one must be always be alert to the proverbial "snake oil salesmen" in all fields - must specially in the religious field. For example...

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 Jews.
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.

Did you know that... the City of Houston Is Forcing Pastors To Turn In Their Sermons? (1)

Some Houston pastors are being forced to hand their sermons over to the city -- and they're not happy about the government reading over their shoulders.

Houston has asked five local conservative pastors to turn over sermons about a controversial new city ordinance that bans discrimination against lesbians, gay, bisexiual and transgender (LGBT) people. The original subpoenas demanded to see any preaching related to homosexuality and gender identity.

Houston's mayor, Annise Parker, has agreed that the initial demands were too broad.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, an advocacy group, said the move to scale back the subpoenas is just an attempt to "turn down the heat." The ADF has filed a motion to shut down the subpoena request completely.

Mayor Annise Parker, a lesbian who has been open about her sexuality, helped to push through this law in May. The ordinance bans discrimination against LGBT people in housing, in employment, and in public spaces.

miguel de Portugal comments: Although we oppose any kind of inflammatory preaching in a synagogue, church or mosque, perhaps the Houston authorities could have achieved the same end without causing such an uproar all the while setting a precedent.

We should keep very much in mind..... the following teachings from the Book of Ecclesiasticus (Sirach), ch. 6,  read at a recent Mass.

[5] A sweet word multiplieth friends, and appeaseth enemies, and a gracious tongue in a good man aboundeth.

[6] Be in peace with many, but let one of a thousand be thy counsellor.

[7] If thou wouldst get a friend, try him before thou takest him, and do not credit him easily.


[8] For there is a friend for his own occasion, and he will not abide in the day of thy trouble.

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

[10] And there is a friend a companion at the table, and he will not abide in the day of distress.

[11] A friend if he continue steadfast, shall be to thee as thyself, and shall act with confidence among them of thy household.

[12] If he humble himself before thee, and hide himself from thy face, thou shalt have unanimous friendship for good.

[13] Separate thyself from thy enemies, and take heed of thy friends.

[14] A faithful friend is a strong defence: and he that hath found him, hath found a treasure.

[15] Nothing can be compared to a faithful friend, and no weight of gold and silver is able to countervail the goodness of his fidelity.

[16] A faithful friend is the medicine of life and immortality: and they that fear the Lord, shall find him.


There are so many very important teachings in the above quote that if we were to underscore them practically the who text would be underscored.

It amazes me how so many souls seek Oriental Wisdom - be it Confucius or Veda writings or, etc., etc., not - to mention the daily Horoscope - when our Holy Scriptures are full of the finest wisdom on Earth. This is an obvious fallout of a failed Evangelization effort.

Whatever the origin of this Ebola plague is, doesn't it seem to fit with the plagues of Revelation?

G.R.

A.
Actually, it fits it better than most can imagine. As you may recall from our The Time Line of the Creation Story - From Its Beginning to Its End (1), the human world population originated in Africa many thousands of years ago. This is a reality which, as we have amply shown, does not take away an ounce of validity from the Biblical Texts.

Now then, would it not be ironic that it were from Africa that a plague which could decimate most of the world population would emerge?

Of course - God has many options as to how the Chastisement (2) will come to pass but the Ebola option - or its major contribution - would certainly be striking through its symbolism.

The Coherence of the Holy Scriptures.... never cease to amaze me!

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....

4 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.


Did you know that.....
Christians of Iraq are backed strongly from France? (1)

Offering support and sanctuary to Iraqi Christians, the Archbishop of Lyon has launched a solidarity initiative twinning the French city with Iraq’s second-largest city Mosul.

The Most Reverend Barbarin held a party for 800 guests.


miguel de Portugal comments: This news report revolted me. These people still do not get it that only prayer and fasting will stop wars and convert hearts.

Two thousand years and they still they cannot learn; that is why God has been left with no other option than to increase the volume of His megaphone (2) - on a worldwide scale - to an ear-splitting level.

Are you aware that.... Hong Kong Protests Continue? (1)

Police and protesters clashed through the weekend in a renewal of the pro-democracy movement, which seemed to have flagged only a few days ago.

miguel de Portugal comments: We wonder how many people have realized that if the people's Republic of China gives in to the Hong Kong protesters, similar protests will spring up around the Chinese mainland bringing down the system they have carefully worked at building?

Viewing it realistically  - the PRC leadership may soon realize that it may be easier to deal with the West's criticism of their actions than to allow the protesters to win, no matter how many lives it may cost.

Let us pray that the protesters see the light and cool down before they are unable to see anything anymore. China will not surrender unless God Wills it and we do not see that in the proverbial cards right now.

From miguel de Portugal

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 readers and their list members we will address the situation here in general terms.

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 soul.

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....

God sends the heaviest crosses to those He calls His own,

And the bitterest drops of the chalice are reserved for His friends alone.

But the 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 required (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 Wisdom.

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:

Love 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 theo-mathematics!

If it is allowed by God for purposes (a) and/or (b), then: (a) ask Him 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:

If any 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 as follows.

(A) Offer the prayer of St. Michael several times a day with a slight modification as indicated below highlighted in italic.

St. Michael, the Archangel defend me in the day of battle. Be my safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him I humbly pray and do thou o prince of The Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell satan and all evil spirits who prowl around me seeking the ruin of my soul.

(B) Offer an ongoing Chaplet of St. Michael (2) 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 example:

Instead of praying: By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Seraphim, may the Lord make us worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity.  Amen!

Pray it as follows: By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Seraphim, may the Lord make me worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity.  Amen! 

Courage my brothers and sisters - with God ALL is possible [Mark 10:27, Matthew 19:26, Luke 18:27] since for God ALL is possible [Mark 14:36]!

I pray to God that all who need to act upon what we have just shared with our readers do so for the benefit of their souls and the benefit of many, many other souls.

(1) In spite of all that venom - and because prayer is mightier than any and all venom - they are both attaining a marvelous levels of conversion of heart which permeates their lives - even though one has Multiple Sclerosis and the other has a brain tumor/cyst just as I do.

Are you aware that.... the following reading from the Gospel of Matthew....

And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all tribes of the earth mourn: and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with much power and majesty. [Matthew 24:29-30]

....is quite coherent with what Sister (now Saint) Faustina was told 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 II:965

(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 hurdling 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.....
Iran 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 disfigured.

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.

miguel de Portugal comments: Perhaps such law should be first applied on those passing it since the law is indeed un-Islamic. They are making any citizen judge and executioner of their fanatic interpretation of the Qur'an.

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 of citizenship - anyone who would act in an "un-Western" way?

Were you aware that..... 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.

miguel de Portugal comments: 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!

Really!

From (Mrs.) LC @ US

In your commentary at www.mgr.org/HeavenIsForReal.html, you refer to the book "Heaven is for Real"  by Todd Burpo, which details his young son's story of his trip to Heaven and back.  Some of your comments follow:

"As you may have gathered already, we essentially confirm the stories in Burpo's book about his son's experience as true.

"It should be sufficient for those who have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear to know that:   I know from personal experience and personal revelations that what little Colton revealed, a little bit at a time, is the way it really is.

"That is also why we have no doubt that the image of Jesus, about which Colton said:  "Dad, that one's right,"  is indeed accurate." 

Since I had read the book prior to reading your commentary, I was familiar with the Image you referred to.  I admit your comment about the Image being accurate stirred my interest to find out more about it.

The YouTube video I found most compelling is entitled  "Comparison of the ISA Tile, Prince of Peace, and Shroud of Turin"

This video  is just under four minutes long.  Should you be interested in viewing it, click on  www.youtube.com/watch?v=UisIxFV_M6M

Should you prefer I not send you such information, please let me know.  It is never my intention to burden you with things you may not have the time, nor the inclination, to pursue.

Thank you for sharing this with our readership. We found it quite interesting.

These contributions are always welcome as long as the sender does not expect our immediate action/response to whatever is sent to us. Unfortunately some readers do and become upset because we have not stopped all else that we have on the agenda to concentrate on the mailing at hand.

Since we know that this is not your case, your contributions, and those of like mind readers, are always welcome!


Have you seen.... the latest Board post?

Did you know that...
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 unit microGray per hour (μGy/h) using the phones in-built camera, which is not only sensitive to visible light, but to higher energy gamma photons.

miguel de Portugal comments: Finally! A truly useful app! Thanks be to God!

Do not forget that.... an indulgence, applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory, is granted to the faithful who devoutly visit a cemetery at any time and pray, even if only mentally, for the departed.

The indulgence is plenary each day from the 1st to the 8th of November; on other days of the year it is partial.

As we approach this great window of opportunity, our readers may want to get familiar with the details associated with this enormous Grace and share the information with others who truly care for the souls in Purgatory.

Let us not allow the many, many stains of the Roman Catholic Church Hierarchy blemish the greatness of this Grace.


We must understand that.... our prayer, encouraged by His promise that:

...all things, whatsoever you ask when ye pray, believe that you shall receive; and they shall come unto you [Mark 11:24]

....must be tempered by subjecting to His Will whatever it is that we are asking for, otherwise the result may be disastrous for the asking soul.

Remember- just because we want something does not make it automatically a wise choice. Only God knows what is perfect and He has given us the opportunity to benefit from such perfection just by deferring to His Will in whatever we ask for.


Have you heard that.... an internal memo promotes bringing non-citizens to US for Ebola treatment? (1)

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 treatment – 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 document (2) is marked "sensitive but unclassified – pre-decisional (sic)."

miguel de Portugal comments: From a scientist's point of view such an idea is sheer insanity.

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 an overwhelming majority in both Houses in the next election, effectively neutralizing the remainder of Mr. Obama's dis-Administration.

One final note: If either link fails because the material has been pulled off from line, let us know and we will send it to you.
