Did you know that.... recent research results suggests that having an abortion does not increase the risk of mental health problems, but having a baby does? (1)

The research by Danish scientists further debunks the notion that terminating a pregnancy can trigger mental illness, and shows postpartum depression to be much more of a factor.

Abortion in Denmark has been legal since 1973 - the same year the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the Roe v. Wade case, which established a right to abortion.

The Danish study included 365,550 teenagers and women who had an abortion or first-time delivery between 1995 and 2007. None had a history of psychiatric problems that required hospitalization. Through various national registries, researchers were able to track mental health counseling at a hospital or outpatient facility before and after an abortion or delivery.

During the study period, 84,620 had an abortion while 280,930 gave birth.

While first-time mothers had a lower rate of mental problems overall, the proportion of those seeking help after giving birth was dramatically higher. About 7 per 1,000 women got mental health help within a year of giving birth compared with 4 per 1,000 women pre-delivery.


The M+G+R Foundation comments: Tragic as the research results seem on the surface, what it reflects is even worse. The generalized state of the souls is the real tragedy.

As the soul drifts away from God it is exposed to greater and greater spiritual dangers (2) and, as it approaches its death, it becomes immune to the natural psychological response to the violation of Divine Laws. Thus "having an abortion does not increase the risk of mental health problems".

At a certain "distance" from God, the damage to the soul is irreversible - the soul will be lost - or, if the soul's name is written in the Book of Life, the volume of God's megaphone will have to be increased to unbearable levels (3) in order to engage the soul's attention and move it toward repentance.

Let us continue to pray (4); and then, pray more (5).

miguel de Portugal repeats a message that....  the Good Lord gave to His people through the prophet Sophonias (Zephaniah) because it is more applicable today than it was when it was first uttered.

[6] I have destroyed the nations, and their towers are beaten down: I have made their ways desert, so that there is none that passeth by: their cities are desolate, there is not a man remaining, nor any inhabitant. [7] I said: Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive correction: and her dwelling shall not perish, for all things wherein I have visited her: but they rose early and corrupted all their thoughts. [8] Wherefore expect me, saith the Lord, in the day of my resurrection that is to come, for my judgment is to assemble the Gentiles, and to gather the kingdoms: and to pour upon them my indignation, all my fierce anger: for with the fire of my jealousy shall all the earth be devoured. [Sophonias 3]

After World War I and World War II (which could have been prevented if the Church Administrators had obeyed the clear instructions from Heaven (0)), one would have expected that humanity - most especially those directly responsible for World War II  - would fulfill the hopes of God:    Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive correction: and her dwelling shall not perish, for all things wherein I have visited her: but they rose early and corrupted all their thoughts.

Instead, during the period of peace after World War II, humanity rose early and corrupted all their thoughts instead of returning to the Lord.
 
Therefore, God is left with no other option than to pour upon them my indignation, all my fierce anger: for with the fire of my jealousy shall all the earth be devoured.

The only Good News that I can offer humanity in His Name at this time is to:

[3] Seek the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, you that have wrought his judgment: seek the just, seek the meek: if by any means you may be hid in the day of the Lord's indignation. [Sophonias 2]

Out of context quotes? Hardly!

Considering that the worldwide natural cataclysmic events of the last 12 months, which He allowed to occur with a minimum of human casualties, did not yield the desired conversion results, I pray to God, while deferring to His Most Holy and Adorable Will, and in the interest of reducing the net pain that humanity will endure (1) throughout these End of These Times, that:

Before humanity enters into the full blown chastisement, (2) God allows, without delay, even greater cataclysmic events - natural and/or man made - with even greater suffering for humanity – in the hope that those who have Eyes and Ears to see and hear, but which are still closed, wake up and cooperate with God (3)so that the net suffering of all humanity throughout the End of These times may be substantially reduced.

Amen!

Did you know that.... in the 20th century, Jews created the three most devastating weapons of mass destruction? (1)

Quoting from the Jewish weekly The Forward published in yesterday's edition....
[our highlighting]

Most famously, there was J. Robert Oppenheimer who ran the Manhattan Project, which gave the world the atom bomb. After him came Edward Teller, the Hungarian Jew who engineered an incredibly destructive upgrade: the hydrogen bomb.

And then there was Samuel T. Cohen, the lesser-known Jewish physicist who rounds off this troika but whose invention, the neutron bomb, has been relegated to ignominy.

In his autobiography, unlike anything ever published by a Manhattan Project insider, Cohen lays bare a trove of revelations about the combustible mix of geniuses who came together for that historic enterprise - and self-revelations about Cohen's own life and what motivated him to devote his career to wholesale death.

By the time of his demise, Cohen was a man made bitter by his frustrated legacy, by the fundamental disconnect between how he saw the neutron bomb, his prize creation - what he called "the most sane and moral weapon ever devised" - and the revulsion with which the world received it.

The neutron bomb was Cohen’s solution to a dilemma. He wanted to develop a battlefield weapon that would not be as totally or lastingly destructive of civilians and infrastructure as the atom or hydrogen bomb, but at the same time would achieve the ultimate purpose of war: to kill soldiers.

His answer was a nuclear bomb that would produce very limited blast damage but would instead release almost all the energy created by nuclear fusion as radiation. Also, because the radiation would consist of neutrons, which carry no charge, no residual radioactivity would be released to poison the environment. It was, in effect, nuclear devastation gone green.


The M+G+R Foundation comments:
Summarizing - Destroy as many lives as possible while saving as much material goods as possible. Personally, we prefer what another Jew recommended:

Be not solicitous therefore, saying, What shall we eat: or what shall we drink, or wherewith shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the heathens seek. For your Father knoweth that you have need of all these things. Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you. Be not therefore solicitous for tomorrow; for the morrow will be solicitous for itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof. [Matthew 6:31-34]

This is how.... the "High and Mighty" destroy real scientific findings which are not financially acceptable to their overall agenda.

Documents (1)(2) have emerged today proving the innocence of Dr Andrew Wakefield, the vaccine / autism researcher who has been falsely accused by the British Medical Journal of "fabricating" the study data he published in 1998.

The documents, just made public yesterday, reveal that other researchers replicated his results independently and with documentation, 14 months before Dr Wakefield published his own work.

In a nutshell - Dr. Wakefield found a connection between children with autism and the MMR vaccine (an immunization shot against measles, mumps and rubella which was first developed by Maurice Hilleman while at Merck in the late 1960s.) The British Medical Journal denounced Dr. Wakefield findings as a fabrication - thus a fraud.

Being led astray is the price that those who believe "a face" - in this case the British Medical Journal - must pay. Poor, poor people; without the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God, they do not stand a chance.

Did you know that.... the Vatican warned the Irish Bishops not to report sexual abuses to the legal authorities? (1)(2)

A newly disclosed document reveals that Vatican officials instructed the bishops of Ireland in 1997 that they must not adopt a policy of reporting priests suspected of child abuse to the police or civil authorities.

The document appears to contradict Vatican claims that the hierarchy in Rome never determined the actions of local bishops in abuse cases, and that the church did not impede criminal investigations of accused child abusers.

The letter was written just after a first wave of scandal over sexual abuse by priests in Irish Catholic schools and other facilities — a scandal that brought down the Irish government.

In 1997, an advisory committee of Irish bishops had drawn up a new policy that included “mandatory reporting” of suspected abusers to civil authorities. The letter, signed by the late Archbishop Luciano Storero, the Vatican’s apostolic nuncio — or chief representative — in Ireland warned the Irish bishops against implementing the reporting policy.

From (Mr.) RBB @ Spain


On July 11, 2010, a total solar eclipse plunged remote Pacific islands into darkness - climaxing on mysterious Easter Island

"The skies grew black in the middle of the day as the Moon slipped in front of the Sun and aligned with the Earth, blotting out the sunshine which just moments earlier had swathed the island’s silent, ancient stone guardians." (1)

The name "Easter Island" was given by the island's first recorded European visitor, the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen, who encountered it on Easter Sunday 1722, (while searching for Davis or David's Island) and named it Paasch-Eyland (18th century Dutch for "Easter Island"). (2) 

My comment: I  assume that "Passover" is the most exact translation for Dutch "Paasch". The origin of Passover, according to Exodus, was that the spirit of the Lord - actually, the last of ten plagues - passed over the homes marked by the Israelites (not harming them). When, after that last plague, Pharaoh freed the Israelites, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread to rise. (3) 

Was that event one more warning from Heaven?

From (Mr. IW) @ US

I had never listened to an Obama speech, and it is many years since I have listened to an American political speech.

Obama delivered the speech clearly and competently. It was a very moderate speech, right down the (statist, imperialist) center of American politics. I can hardly imagine any fair-minded listener to the speech calling Obama a closet Nazi, Fascist, or Communist. No hint, however, of dealing with the torture, illegal wars, invasions of privacy, etc.
 
Anyone who listens to the speech will believe that the US is in good order, and some minor fixes will make things OK over the short term and the long term. There was no sense of urgency, emergency, or impending disaster.

Again: anyone who "lives within" the world portrayed by Obama's speech will have no clue whatsoever of the nature and severity of the pending events that you warn about.

(Mr.) IW


A.
We will let St. Paul respond to your communication, since we could not possibly do any better.

For yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall so come, as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, peace and security; then shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the pains upon her that is with child, and they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. For all you are the children of light, and children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.    [1 Thess. 5: 3-5]

We have done our part the best we could: Shine His Light so that the children of light can see their way safely through the End of These Times. As for the rest, it is for God to decide.

Thank you for this opportunity.


Do you wonder... at what point of the script for manifestation of the False Christ will the Opus Dei Administration open the coffin of Escrivá and find his (originally mummified) body "incorrupt"?

From that point on there could be just a few steps before the manifestation of the False Christ.

Far fetched? Think about it!

Did you know that.... 9/11 conspiracy proponents, staged moon-landing paranoiacs, and Cassandras of the New World Order are called the Holy Fools of Our Age? (1)

Things are not what they seem, they preach to us daily from their street corners and Web sites, and try as we might to ignore them, we can't help but soak up their toxic paranoia and narcissism in our best sellers and blockbusters.

Pop culture has always had plots and conspiracies, of course - the first blockbuster was the white-supremacist epic Birth of a Nation, whose major theme was the secret agenda behind Southern Reconstruction. Back then conspiracy theory was a shocking device; today it's a marketing tool.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Until, of course, the conspiracy theories that are anchored on solid rock come to pass (2). Then, all of the ones who have persistently lived in denial (3) and denounced each one of them as a "Conspiracy Theory" will claim that they  "...saw it coming".

Brethren, the predictable (non) response to reality shown by the rank and file of humanity - exemplified in this case by Stephen Marche from Esquire Magazine - is getting rather boring and repetitive.

Why should we be puzzled by the events God allows upon humanity (4) in the hopes of waking it up from the same slumber Peter, John and James surrendered to at Gethsemani [Matthew  26:36-45] ?

How humanity has wasted the graces and opportunities for repentance that have been offered by God for the last hundred years! How dreadful will be the price that humanity pays for its avoidable, blameworthy denial, sloth, and negligence!

The world's largest super-volcano is set to erupt for the first time in 600,000 years, wiping out two-thirds of the U.S.? (1)

The super-volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004. It could explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980. Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away.

Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes.

This is the nightmare that scientists are predicting could happen if the world’s largest super-volcano erupts for the first time in 600,000 years, as it could do in the near future. Yellowstone National Park’s caldera has erupted three times in the last 2.1million years and researchers monitoring it say we could be in for another eruption.

They said that the super-volcano underneath the Wyoming park has been rising at a record rate since 2004 - its floor has gone up three inches per year for the last three years alone, the fastest rate since records began in 1923.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: That would certainly qualify as a "Green Apocalypse", and would bring the wasteful and pointless political squabbling between Republicans and Democrats to an end.

We just cannot see, however, how "they" will pin this one on bin Laden or on a mentally unbalanced loner....

Know that.... for the first time we have seen - outside m de P's writings - a crystal clear, separate identification of the Anti Christ and the False Christ, as well as key forerunners of the Anti Christ.  All of this is contained in the Message of La Salette. (1)

Probably speaking of Napoleon III and Hitler She states:

"A forerunner of the Antichrist, with his troops gathered from several nations, will fight against the true Christ, the only Savior of the world. He will shed much blood and will want to annihilate the worship of God to make himself be looked upon as a God."

Then, pertaining to a later period She speaks of the Anti Christ himself:

"There will be a series of wars until the last war, which will then be fought by the ten kings of the Antichrist, all of whom will have one and the same plan and will be the only rulers of the world."

She speaks of the Anti Christ several places after the above mentioned quote. Then, at the end She speaks of the False Christ thus:

"Now is the time, the abyss is opening. Here is the king of kings of darkness, here is the Beast with his subjects, calling himself the Savior of the world. He will rise proudly into the air to go to Heaven."

Do notice that in the first quote, when She speaks about the forerunner of the Antichrist She states that he: "...will want to annihilate the worship of God to make himself be looked upon as a God." That is, he will not want to pass himself as God. He will just want to be looked upon as a God.

Then, in the third quote She clearly identifies the False Christ as one who: "... calling himself the Savior of the world. He will rise proudly into the air to go to Heaven." That is, he will want to pass himself as God.

No wonder "they" tried to discredit Melanie, and continue to do so.

From miguel de Portugal @ European Union - US

On January 21st, 2011, we posted the following quotation from the message of Las Salette (1):

"...in part of Her 1846 Message at La Salette, France, Mary said that:  "In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell;..."

We then highlighted....

"Karl Marx's political isolation ended in 1864 with the founding of the International Working Men's Association."

Upon reading the above, Mr. RBB, from Spain, pointed out to us another nefarious event associated with the year 1864. This connection was was expanded by Mr. LP, from the US. Summarizing from such information:

In addition of the year 1864 being considered the birth of communism (see post quoted above) another event - as devastating for the Faith as communism - took place. (1)

The X Club was a dining club of nine men who supported the theories of natural selection and academic liberalism in late 19th-century England. Thomas Henry Huxley was its initiator.  He called the first meeting for November 3, 1864.

After Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species was published in 1859, the men who founded the X Club began working together to aid the cause for naturalism and natural history. The members of the X Club social network played a significant part in nominating Darwin for the Copley Medal in 1864.

Naturalism is defined as a philosophy that posits a particular picture of reality, being, and existence that typically excludes the supernatural.

Therefore - satan, in 1864, covered all the bases. Launching the denial of God and the supernatural via Marx's political philosophy and via the Huxley-Darwin "scientific" efforts.

This prophecy has proven to be accurate, just as have many other prophecies included in the Message of La Salette. This message from Our Lady was, and continues to be, vehemently denied by the forerunners of the False Christ (2). Meanwhile, in further fulfillment of the prophecy of La Salette, the enthronement of the Anti Christ in Rome took place in April, 2005. (3)

We Praise God and we thank Messrs. RBB and LP for their alertness (with Eyes and Ears wide open) which provided us with more concrete proof for our readers that what we have been announcing for decades - with God as its true source - is a reality and not "just more Conspiracy Theory".


Did you know that...
the deliberate injury of the limbs of 23 boys by high velocity weapons has been logged and described by Defence for Children International – Palestine Branch (DCI-P) since March 2010? (1)(2)

Some of the facts have been published in national newspapers.  These barbarous acts contravene international and national law but there are no judicial responses.  The caring professions see the physical and mental pain of those who suffer, and they should be in the vanguard in calling for this great cruelty to cease forthwith.  Political leaders have failed to act.

The Geneva Conventions Act 1957, which is of central importance in holding war criminals to account in the jurisdiction of the UK, is being emasculated.

The M+G+R Foundation comments:  What follows is not a "political statement"; it is a prophetic statement.

While the State of Israel, claiming a Divine covenant which God does not acknowledge and will not honor, forcibly extended its UN-given territory through the Six Day War and established what amounts to a "State of Terror" in the Middle East, it continues to ignore a number of UN resolutions condemning a number of the illegal acts conducted by the State of Israel (3).

In spite of all of that, the governments of the US have continued to support, protect and defend, at our (taxpayers) expense, whatever the Israeli government does. In supernatural/Divine language, this  translates into: We, the people of the US will be accountable before God for each and every atrocity conducted by the State of Israel.

Let us not forget that God allowed World War II - costing more than 50 million lives - because the simple requests made through Fatima were not fulfilled (4).

We have already explained that what was started with World War II has not been finished (5) and it is too late to turn back.

At this point, as we do not tire of repeating, only prayer can cushion the blows that await humanity in general, and the US and the State of Israel, in particular.

A reminder: miguel de Portugal does not make the rules or the laws, nor does he execute judgment. miguel only announces what God will allow and why (but not by whom, or when). God is the only Supreme Judge, and God is the only enforcer of Divine Justice.

Did you know that....  Yellowstone has bulged as an underlying magma pocket swells? (1)

....beginning in 2004, scientists saw the ground above the caldera rise upward at rates as high as 2.8 inches (7 centimeters) a year.

The rate slowed between 2007 and 2010 to a centimeter a year or less. Still, since the start of the swelling, ground levels over the volcano have been raised by as much as 10 inches (25 centimeters) in places.

"It's an extraordinary uplift, because it covers such a large area and the rates are so high," said the University of Utah's Bob Smith, a longtime expert in Yellowstone's volcanism.

Scientists think a swelling magma reservoir four to six miles (seven to ten kilometers) below the surface is driving the uplift. Fortunately, the surge doesn't seem to herald an imminent catastrophe, Smith said.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Mr. Smith's reassurances would be comforting were it not for the track record of meteorological forecasts; not to mention the earthquake predicting abilities of "scientists".

The "good news" is that a blow out by the Yellowstone caldera would give humanity more of a Green Apocalypse than, say, an all out nuclear war between the new honeymooners, China and the US. Thanks be to God, it will be His decision - not ours!

Speaking of "scientists" - Natural News has published an article (2) about the prostitution of science and scientists. As a scientist with more years of experience than the author of the article probably has of adult life, m de P has to say of this article: Amen! A perfect picture of reality!

Did you know that....  any day now we may see a second sun light up the sky, if only for a matter of weeks? (1)

It's the ultimate experience for Star Wars fans - staring forlornly off into the distance as twin suns sink into the horizon. Yet it's not just a figment of George Lucas's imagination - twin suns are real. And here's the big news - they could be coming to Earth.

The infamous red super-giant star in Orion’s nebula - Betelgeuse - is predicted to go gangbusters and the impending super-nova may reach Earth before 2012, and when it does, all of our wildest Star Wars dreams will come true.

The second biggest star in the Orion constellation is losing mass, a typical indication that a gravitation collapse is occurring. When that happens, we'll get our second sun, according to Dr Brad Carter, Senior Lecturer of Physics at the University of Southern Queensland.

From (Mr.) TJ @ US

I could not keep quiet on this story. (1)

Basically, there is a push to destroy the last stocks of smallpox, but the US and Russia, who hold them, oppose it on the notion that if “terrorists” acquire or synthesize the virus (meaning synthesize the DNA, which is possible if the sequence has been published), then they would need it to make vaccines. 

This is absurd...

First, because a vaccine exists already.  It's how smallpox was eliminated, and it's called Vaccinia virus (guess where we get the word “vaccine” from).

Second, if the virus is eliminated, it makes it that much less likely anybody would get hold of it.

Third, they can as easily synthesize the DNA for portions of it they want to use as vaccines as any terrorists could; in fact, the professionals can do so much better than any amateur.

Fourth, if it is found circulating in the wild, and for some reason vaccinia doesn’t work as well as hoped, it takes no time to re-isolate the new virus from infected individuals.

Fifth, if vaccinia doesn't work that well, it means that the virus has been altered, in which case index samples are useless anyway, and you HAVE to isolate it from infected individuals. 

So the “official” story is completely false, but it's winning the day.  Is that a surprise?

(Mr.) TJ

Did you know that....
  in part of Her 1846 Message at La Salette, France, Mary said that:  "In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell;..."

and that....

Karl Marx's political isolation ended in 1864 with the founding of the International Working Men's Association. Although he was neither its founder nor its head, he soon became its leading spirit.

Its first public meeting, called by English trade union leaders and French workers' representatives, took place at St. Martin's Hall in London on Sept. 28, 1864.

Marx, who had been invited through a French intermediary to attend as a representative of the German workers, sat silently on the platform. A committee was set up to produce a program and a constitution for the new organization.

After various drafts had been submitted that were felt to be unsatisfactory, Marx, serving on a subcommittee, drew upon his immense journalistic experience. His "Address and the Provisional Rules of the International Working Men's Association," unlike his other writings, stressed the positive achievements of the cooperative movement and of parliamentary legislation; the gradual conquest of political power would enable the British proletariat to extend these achievements on a national scale. (1)

...and communism was born.  The rest is history, which is yet to reach its final Chapter.

______________________
(1) Source

and then....

She came back at Fatima on 1917 in an effort to stop the spread of communism and the almost complete demise of the Faith and, for the reasons that She announced in Her message of 1846 at La Salette (1), such as:

"The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their love of honors and pleasures, the priests have become cesspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking for vengeance, and vengeance is hanging over their heads. Woe to the priests and to those consecrated to God who by their infidelity and their wicked lives are crucifying My Son again! The sins of those dedicated to God cry out towards Heaven and call for vengeance, and now vengeance is at their door, for there is no one left to beg mercy and forgiveness for the people. There are no more generous souls, there is no one left worthy of offering a spotless sacrifice to the Eternal for the sake of the world.

Her requests were completely ignored by the Roman Catholic Church Administration. (2)

Resulting in just what She announced in 1846....

"God will strike in an unprecedented way. ...."Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God will exhaust His wrath upon them, and no one will be able to escape so many afflictions together.

The 20th century became the bloodiest century of humanity, only to be surpassed by the 21st.

Then, we have to tolerate, with a measure of charity, the fanatics (3) claiming that the full Message of La Salette was a fabrication of Melanie, the Shepherdess of La Salette.

That's an attitude that pervades, I'm here to say, a large percentage of the Joint Special Operations Command.".....many within JSOC, "are all members of, or at least supporters of, Knights of Malta."...."Many of them are members of Opus Dei," Hersh continued. "They do see what they're doing -- and this is not an atypical attitude among some military -- it's a crusade, literally. They see themselves as the protectors of the Christians. They're protecting them from the Muslims [as in] the 13th century. And this is their function.....

...They have little insignias, these coins they pass among each other, which are crusader coins," he continued. "They have insignia that reflect the whole notion that this is a culture war. … Right now, there’s a tremendous, tremendous amount of anti-Muslim feeling in the military community.”" "I've given up being disillusioned about the CIA," Hersh said. "They're trained to lie, period. They will lie to their president, they will lie certainly to the Congress, and they will lie to the American people. That's all there is to it." (2)

Perhaps Mr. Hersh is not so crazy.....

From (Mrs.) RM @ Puerto Rico

Regarding the posting about Cardinal Burke (January 17th) and the Paulus Institute, the Knights of Columbus and Knights of Malta (January 15th (1)) I came across the following information:
[my underscoring]

"Archbishop Burke's farewell Mass in the Archdiocese of St. Louis was held in the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis on Sunday, August 17, 2008. It was concelebrated by Bishops George Joseph Lucas, Robert Joseph Hermann, John Joseph Leibrecht, John R. Gaydos, Robert W. Finn, Raymond James Boland, and Kevin William Vann. In addition, over seventy-five priests, fifty seminarians, a full honor guard of the Knights of Columbus (over 60 members), and over fifty Knights and Dames of the Order of Malta were in attendance". (2)

and that...

A priest in the Diocese of La Crosse, (where he was bishop from February 22, 1995 to December 2, 2003) says about Burke: "that Burke's leadership there was divisive. Richard Dickman, who had served as pastor of St. Mary's Church in Tomah, Wisconsin stated in a resignation letter that "I can no longer minister as a priest in this diocese and retain a sense of integrity. I find that my conscience is in conflict with the vision of ministry characterized by the bishop I have promised to obey. I am in an impossible position." (2)

which leads us to...

In the late 1990s, the bishop combined the parishes of St. Mary and St. James in Wausau, Wisconsin. The two parishes formed the Resurrection Parish at what was formerly St. James' Parish.

St. Mary's was sold. Burke then asked the conservative Latin-rite religious order, Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, to perform the Tridentine Mass at what was formerly St. Mary's. In February 2002, the order's superior, Monsignor Timothy Svea, pleaded guilty to exposing himself to and molesting teenage boys. (3)

The "purity and orthodoxy" of Cardinal Burke seems to be in question.

Did you know that....  scientists unveiled a hypothetical California scenario that describes a storm that could produce up to 10 feet of rain, cause extensive flooding (in many cases overwhelming the state’s flood-protection system) and result in more than $300 billion in damage? (1)

The “ARkStorm Scenario,” prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey and released at the ARkStorm Summit in Sacramento on Jan. 13 – 14, combines prehistoric geologic flood history in California with modern flood mapping and climate-change projections to produce a hypothetical, but plausible, scenario aimed at preparing the emergency response community for this type of hazard.

“The ARkStorm scenario is a complete picture of what that storm would do to the social and economic systems of California,” said Lucy Jones, chief scientist of the USGS Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project and architect of ARkStorm. “We think this event happens once every 100 or 200 years or so, which puts it in the same category as our big San Andreas earthquakes. The ARkStorm is essentially two historic storms (January 1969 and February 1986) put back to back in a scientifically plausible way.


The M+G+R Foundation comments: Too little; too late. It is like if the governments of Sodom and Gomorrah bought fire extinguishers and had weekly drills on how to extinguish the fires raining form the heavens while the angels of God were walking towards them  to confirm their level of "purity and orthodoxy". [Gen. 19:1-25] .

Please note: We are not trying to "be funny or cute". We are as serious as the proverbial block of granite. May those who have Eyes, See and those who have Ears, Hear.

Just to ensure that the Catholics do not have a monopoly on clueless (or worse) handling of sex offenses and offenders ... here's a story (1) about a pedophile, with a criminal record, whom Scott Lively, an anti-gay activist pastor, hired to run his missionary coffeehouse with a strong outreach to youth.
 
Mr. Lively is the author of Pink Swastika, a "history" book that blames homosexual men for the rise of the Nazi Party and for the Holocaust. He is a significant activist in the US' Christian-rightist movement.

Regarding the recent tragic events at Tucson....

Since this incident focused the whole country as 9/11 did, God's megaphone is getting louder! For example:

1. The assailant's name: Jared Loughner: The name Jared means "descending".

Chapter 106 of the Book of Enoch states that during the life of the sixth Patriarch Jared, father of Enoch, the rebellious angels descended from Heaven to the Earth and had relations with human females.  This happening presaged the destruction of the Great Flood. (1) (2)

2. The target's name: Gabrielle Giffords: Gabrielle is the feminine of Gabriel, "strength of God", the herald who announced the coming of the Messiah and in the English speaking culture, blows the trumpet to summon the end times.

Gabriel has great significance in Islam, as much as in Christianity.  Gabrielle Giffords is Jewish.  

3. A truly innocent victim's name: Christina Taylor Green: Christina means "follower of Christ".  Christina was born on  9/11/01.

4. January 8th is the feast of Notre Dame de Bon Secours, the patron saint of  New Orleans. That city was almost destroyed by what used to be called an “Act of God” (which should be called an “act of nature allowed by God”).

The Ursuline nuns in New Orleans prayed for Andrew Jackson's victory over the British on January 8, 1815.  General Jackson went to the convent himself to thank the nuns for their  prayers: "By the blessing of heaven, directing the valor of the troops  under my command, one of the most
brilliant victories in the annals of  war was obtained."

Is this another of God's tender mercies meant to comfort the disturbed as well as disturb the comfortable?

Thank you for sharing this very illuminated evaluation with all of us.



Did you know that....  Benedict XVI named a former aide to disgraced Cardinal Bernard Law (1) of the Archdiocese of Boston as auxiliary bishop of Indianapolis? (2)

This makes him the heir apparent to the ailing, aging archbishop of Indiana’s largest Roman Catholic diocese.

The director of a group representing people who had suffered sexual abuse by priests immediately labeled the appointment of Rev. Christopher Coyne "irresponsible and callous." (3)

The 52-year-old was Law’s spokesman in 2002, when the sexual abuse scandal erupted in the Boston diocese.

and that....

...Cardinal Raymond Burke, former Archbishop of St. Louis and current prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, the Church's 'supreme court,' has been given even more responsibilities by Benedict XVI? (4)

According to the Vatican Information Service, the official news agency of the Holy See, Cardinal Burke, well known for his orthodox views, was named by the Holy Father on Dec. 29 as a member of three important congregations of the Roman Curia. They include the Congregation for Bishops, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, and the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts.

The addition of Cardinal Burke to the Congregation for Bishops could be significant for the Church's future. The Congregation is the curial office responsible for assisting the pope in the selection of new bishops.

The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments is responsible for overseeing the Church's liturgical practices.

The Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts' chief responsibility is interpretation of Church law.

and that...

....Alexander Lukashenko, still president of Belarus thanks to a rigged election, has found an ally in the Vatican? (5)

With a little hope opposition leaders asked to meet Archbishop Martin Vidovic, the papal nuncio in Belarus. They carried a letter to the Pope, which said: "Today Belarus is enshrouded in darkness. Arrests of activists, raids and pogroms at independent websites and newspaper offices, searches of apartments continue. The authorities are blackmailing the political prisoners using their little children. We are seeking your help."

The nuncio refused to meet them. Later he relented, but Ratzinger has not protested against the oppression or promised to break diplomatic relations with the outlaw state.

The Vatican that still claims to be a force for good is staying silent because it is seeking a concordat with a state that still has a KGB and statues of Lenin on its streets, just as it sought accommodation with Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

The advantages for the papacy are hard to judge, because the terms of concordats are secret, but we can assume it wants what it has always wanted: public money and control of children's schooling. The advantages for Lukashenko are easier to grasp.


The M+G+R Foundation comments:
Nothing new.... just the same revolting business as usual.

From (Mrs.) IW@ US

The last Christmas certainly was an odd one for me....

The Mass was going along just fine and then the priest decided to  bring all the younger kids up to the altar.  He started asking them  what was Christmas. One 5 or 6 year old told the story of the Angel Gabriel etc., but most told of Santa Claus, with many saying he was born on this day.

It was very long and agonizing.  He finished it by  bringing out Saint Nicholas dressed all in red and the kids oohed and aahed: Santa came!!

St. Nicholas walked across the altar and he  knelt down beside the baby Jesus and said a prayer and left (That was  the only reverent thing that happened during the fiasco).

TThe children were disappointed that St. Nicholas didn't talk to them.  There were many parents who were not happy about this at all.  This is not what the Mass at Christmas should be about.  They felt it made the kids look silly and the parents look worse (it did!).

It was not a proud day for the Catholic Church or for the parents. The Mass further deteriorated and the moment was gone.  No feeling of goodness came from this service.

Since I had to go to two different houses for Christmas so I could be there  for the opening of presents, I drove through two different sections of town. If I hadn't known it was Christmas I would have thought it  was another typical business day.

The shops were open and the people were working and shopping.  It was very strange.  I'm not talking  about buying presents; this was grocery stores, auto repair shops, tire shops, liquor stores, restaurants, etc.  Very odd, especially since  Wal-Mart and Target were closed.

Other than that, I had a great Christmas with family and friends.

(Mrs.) IW


A. Thank you for sharing these experiences with us.

Our comments follow:

a. The children's impression about Santa Claus is a clear reflection of the failed Evangelization effort, in the Church and at home. 
b. The Catholic Church has had precious few proud days in the last 1,600 years, if we use the teachings of Jesus Christ as a gauge.
c. The poor priest tried what we have taught using the Magi.(1) However, that should not be done during the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass. 
d. The "business as usual" that you witnessed as you drove through two different neighborhoods clearly reflect what you referred to us a few days ago: Seven in 10 Americans say religion is losing its influence on American life -- one of the highest such responses in Gallup's 53-year history of asking this question, and significantly higher than in the first half of the past decade. (2)

Do you know why.... according to an analysis released Wednesday by researchers at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), global surface temperatures in 2010 tied those of 2005 as the warmest on record? (1)

In the new analysis, the next warmest years are 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007, which are statistically tied for third warmest year. The GISS records begin in 1880.

The analysis found 2010 approximately 1.34 F warmer than the average global surface temperature from 1951 to 1980.  Data from 2010 shows that the climate has warmed by approximately 0.36 F per decade since the late 1970s.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Do notice that for the first, second and third places in warmest years since records began to be kept in 1880, only one year (1998) does not belong to the 21st century.

I read with interest your post on the Board dated January 10, 2011. (1)

The mention of the Knights of Malta and Knights of Columbus in that post caught my attention because I remembered their mention on the biography of the Board of Directors of the Paulus Institute.

This is the Institute that sponsored the 5th Anniversary of the Pontificate of Benedict XVI that took place in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC., as noted on your April 29, 2010 post on the FYI&R page (2).

The first footnote of that post has a link to the Paulus Institute Board of Directors' biography where I found that there are three Knights of Malta in said board, one of them with a 4 degree rank, while the President and co-founder of the Institute is a Knight of Columbus.

Do you know why.... it seems that Haiti "has all the bad luck in the world?

In recent days - as many public events have taken place to remember the devastating earthquake that all but destroyed the little Haitians had - the idea/concept that it was the result of Divine Punishment has been discussed again.

Allow us - once again - to make something perfectly clear: God DOES NOT punish! Love cannot punish - period!

We cannot say that "gravity punished someone who, after falling of a 12th story building rooftop, died". That someone defied the Law of Gravity and the consequence was death by the effect that the Law of Gravity has in our planet.

Conversely - when man defies Divine Law - that is, he drifts away from God - man is exposed to the forces of evil in proportion to how far away he has drifted away from God.

Look at this image:

There is an ample and fully illuminated center. Those who move in that ample brilliantly illuminated space are under Divine guidance and protection from harm. As one moves away from that center, you can see that darkness starts to encroach on the "living space" denoted by the darkening bands moving away from the center.

As the "living space" becomes darker, its "residents" become more susceptible to the forces of darkness - thus, exposed to more physical and spiritual danger. Therefore, as one moves away from the very ample safe zone at the center, danger increases.  (1)

Quoting from the news: (2)
[our highlighting]

Voodoo has been practised in Haiti since the late 18th Century, but only now [in April 2003] has it been recognised as a religion on a par with others worshipped in the country.

Haiti's Catholic President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, took the decision earlier in April which means that voodoo ceremonies such as marriages now have equal standing with Catholic ones.

The mixture of gods and goddesses and Catholic saints is an integral part of Haitian life - one common saying is that Haitians are 70% Catholic, 30% Protestant, and 100% voodoo.

It is hard to get further away from God than practicing said religion. Therefore - it logically follows that, once it was made official, they have officially left God out of their lives. Therefore, the little protection they had simply vanished.

Then - an atheist would ask: "What kind of a god your God is that allows such suffering and so many deaths?" To which we would answer:

(a) Pain is the megaphone that God uses for the deaf to hear (3). Maybe they will realize that the practicing of voodoo is not helping them at all and they will then come back to God; and
(b) Those who were born in that country and whose names are in the Book of Life [Philippians 4:3, Revelations 13:8] could fall prey to voodoo practices and abandon the true and living God. In that case, God must taken them to Himself soon lest they be deceived and their souls be lost.

Therefore, we must pray for their conversion and try to accomplish, through prayer, what the failed Evangelization did not.

Once again we remind one and all - miguel de Portugal does not make the laws nor does he have the power to change them. All he can do, in the Name of God, is explain how they work.

From (Mr.) GR @ US

A thought concerning the 'rain of animals'...

If this occurrence is not a conspiracy or a willful act of human planning, could it be that, like the mine shaft canary, which warned of poisonous or explosive gases by becoming sick or dying underground, today's birds and marine life are dying en masse, warning us on top of the earth that things are not right.

Maybe there's methane gas leaking to the surface of the earth's crust in sufficient concentration through fissures to offset homeostasis of life in a bird;  maybe there's enough methane (God knows there is down by the BP Louisiana oil catastrophe) coming up through the sea bed to kill the fish, crabs, etc.

Maybe these fissures are now all over the globe where man has probed and perforated the planet to the point where the crust is no longer stable.

Just look at the seismic world wide activity.

Maybe worldwide the escaping gases will increase exponentially until any sufficient source of ignition from civilization's vast electronics/electricity/energy infrastructure (along with lightning) will surely accommodate the apocalypse.

What government would admit such a finding for fear of mass hysteria and its effects - for fear of endangering the elitists' chances of survival?

What equipment could extinguish fires caused by the aforementioned gases when any such equipment would likely be a source of ignition because of the magnitude and volume of the gas accumulations...

....and the earth will become like a desert... the moon will have a faint reddish glow mirroring the fires on earth.

May God have mercy on us...

Yours in Christ,

(Mr.) GR


A. We have been addressing and highlighting these warnings for years - especially those associated with the rapid increase in earthquake activity (1) (2) as well as those of astronomical nature (3).  However, not enough of humanity has responded - just as we expected.

As we have previously said: no government will publicly acknowledge realities in the face of which they are completely powerless - especially when these realities are yet to be manifested in time. This is especially true in situations such as are happening in Australia now, in which all the authorities can do is to do their (inadequate) best against current and foreseen disasters, and to tell citizens to brace for even worse calamities to come.

God will allow mankind to be brought down to its knees by its own abysmal stupidity. We should consider ourselves very fortunate that He will allow some humans to remain, in order to repopulate a recreated planet (4). From our perspective, if He chose to destroy the entire planet we could fully understand His actions  and we could not dare to even think "Why?"

Indeed, indeed - May God have Mercy on His Elect - even if we do not deserve it!

The poles are generated by movements within the Earth's inner and outer cores, though the exact process isn't exactly understood. They're also constantly in flux, moving a few degrees every year, but the changes are almost never of such a magnitude that runways require adjusting, said Paul Takemoto, a spokesman for the FAA.

The magnetic fields vary from place to place. Adjustments are needed now at airports in Tampa, but they aren't immediately required at all airports across the country.

Did you know that... thousands of turtle doves fell dead from the sky in Faenza, Italy? (1)

Last Wednesday (January 5th),... countless turtle doves were found scattered in the streets, in flower beds and hanging tragically from trees "like Christmas balls" in the town of Faenza. Many of the birds that fell dead from the sky were discovered with a mysterious blue stain in their beaks.

In the past week, similar incidents of mass animal deaths have been reported across the world. Thousands of dead birds fell from the sky in Arkansas on New Year's Eve, and similar incidents were reported on different days in Louisiana, Kentucky and Sweden. Two million fish were discovered dead in Maryland, with other fish kills also reported in Brazil, New Zealand and Arkansas -- approximately 100 miles from the bird incident. 40,000 crabs washed up on England beaches in the past few days, as well.

While the events are likely unrelated, most still remain a mystery. Officials suggest fireworks are likely responsible for many of the bird deaths and that unusually cold weather could be to blame for the strange mass deaths of fish and crabs.

The M+G+R Foundation comments:

First, the symbolism of the bird species - turtle doves - is as follows:

As it is written in the law of the Lord: Every male opening the womb shall be called holy to the Lord: And to offer a sacrifice, according as it is written in the law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons: [Luke 2:23-24]

Then, the symbolism the geographical location is as follows:

The major city nearest Faenza is Ravenna. Ravenna was the capital city of the Western Roman Empire from 402 until 476.

It is presently the capital of the Province of Ravenna. It is the second-largest comune in land area in Italy, although it is only a little more than half the size of the largest, Rome.

At this point we wish to remind our readers of what we published on September 5, 2010, (2) and the passage from the Jesus oriented Christianity to the Imperial Roman Catholic Church.

We also wish to remind our readers that: The slow decline of the Roman Empire occurred over a period of roughly 320 years, culminating on September 4, 476, when Romulus Augustus, the last Emperor of the Western Roman Empire, was deposed by Odoacer, a Germanic chieftain. (3)

It seems that God continues to use every possible channel to warn His Elect and we pray that they respond so that their suffering may be mitigated.... or it is just that the New Year fireworks over Arkansas finally caught up with the Faenza's turtledoves on the Eve of the Epiphany?

But then again maybe the Arkansas fireworks had nothing to do with it since, we just noticed, the most apocalyptic of all Marian Messages, that of La Salette, was delivered in 1846.... 1,370 years after the collapse of the Roman Empire headquartered at Ravenna. In this message, (4) She announced:

Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! There will be bloody wars and famines, plagues and infectious diseases. It will rain with a fearful hail of animals. There will be thunderstorms which will shake cities, earthquakes which will swallow up countries.

....and delivered other warnings to a humanity which was acting in the same manner which triggered the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.

We are next.

May the Sin of Denial (5) effectively separate the wheat from the chaff.

From (Mrs.) IW @ Puerto Rico

When talking about prayer and fasting - what is the correct form of doing it?

Should we get apart for praying, a day, some hours, or how long we should practice it (in the middle of the activities of a day)?
 
Should we pray and fast simultaneously?
 
Is the fast of meat or of all kinds of food, or allowing only bread and water, for example?
 
Sorry for asking about I should already know. The only knowledge I have about fasting is what we practice on Fridays in preparation for Holy Week.

IW


A.
Superb questions!  Thank you!

Yes, you and most Christians should know about this.... but only if the Evangelization had been done in accordance to God's Will. Unfortunately, what the Administrators of the Good News did was a complete spiritual failure for the faithful and a roaring financial success for them.

Your questions give us a golden opportunity to bring this up to the faithful at large.

Although we could write the proverbial book about this, we will be brief and to the point.

About Prayer

Prayer should be strung out throughout the day - every day. One can actually pray Rosaries meditating one decade at a time. A well prayed decade does not take more than five minutes. Do you realize how many five minute periods we just waste waiting for this or that? Even on a grocery line. Therefore, for each 25 minutes one well prayed and meditated Rosary has been offered. It is just a matter of practice. m de P could safely navigate the Houston Freeways at 60-70 mph while praying and meditating a Rosary.

One should start the day with five to ten minutes of prayers. We have already published an appropriate selection of prayers (1) to choose from.

If one is able to stop all activities 15 minutes before the hour of Mercy - at 3 PM - one should offer the Chaplet of Mercy (2) plus the Special 3 PM prayer. It is a matter of planning and self training. Long before m de P left the world - while he was still involved in business - he was able to do so every day.

One should strive to spend one hour before the Blessed Sacrament once a week. While keeping Our Lord company, one may offer prayers as well as read pious texts - the Holy Bible as the first choice. If one could "drop by" for a quick 5-10 minute visit every day, He would be most pleased.

Stations of the Cross on Fridays would be a very good addition to the prayer schedule. Pray them virtually (3) or in an actual church/chapel - that is, if you find one unlocked.

One should end the day with five to ten minutes of prayers which may be selected from the ones we have already mentioned above (1).

We should strive to pray a total of two hours a day - spread out throughout the day.


About Fasting

Bread and water (and black coffee or tea if you are so inclined) makes a good basic fasting menu. Wednesday and Friday have been traditionally days of fasting but if one must choose one, the choice would be Friday.

Also, we can "fast" many times outside the selected day by forgoing little pleasures that may be available to us. For example - when one is offered a tempting (but nutritiously unnecessary) desert or snack one may just forgo it. Or those "chips that you just can't eat only one": Just eat a small amount and forgo the rest.... which you would have had otherwise.

But fasting is not all about food. From time to time one can give up a favorite TV program or movie or game for a specific purpose, i.e. For love of Jesus, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the conversion of sinners.

We must give up what we enjoy and desire, as Abel did and not as Cain did. Giving up something that we do not truly enjoy, desire or need is an insult to God if we present it as a sacrifice. Let us not forget the teachings Jesus gave us through the widow's mite. [Mark 12:44 and Luke 21:4]

If for medical reasons one cannot go a day without nourishment (outside of bread), the solution is simple. On that day eat the foods that you like the least or outright dislike. Sometimes that is even harder than to fast on bread and water.

In conclusion - No extremes should be attempted in prayer and fasting. Prudence is very important. One can actually over pray - a trick that satan has been known to use.

One can also over fast as miguel once did - only water for a whole day while maintaining a back breaking business day. Result: cardiac arrhythmia. Although he was alone and had no idea what was going on - he was immediately guided as to the steps to take to restore normal heartbeat (while he was being reminded of "I told you not to do it!" which was absolutely true!).

The recent articles distributed from a group claiming that the world will end on May 21, 2011 and that Christ is planning to return to earth on that day (1) cause me to pause and reflect.

 If these people can convince many that this will occur, wouldn't it be a perfect mechanism to herald the announcement of the antichrist as the world savior.

 Even if it doesn't occur on this date, and I'm sure it won't because other events need to take place first, this is the kind of pre hype proclamation that the agents of satan will use to carefully and seamlessly insert his presence under the guise of Christ's return.
 
I have also included a recent New World Order discussion from George Soros talking about marginalizing the US currency, among other thing (2).

PB


A.
Thank you for sharing your very plausible scenarios on this matter.

May God continue to Grace you with His Light.

A reminder that.... today is the First Friday of the Month and of the year 2011.



Posted on (the afternoon - GMT - of) January 6th, 2011 [Feast of the Epiphany]

Regarding the "rain of dead animals"... we have been reminded about the Message of Lasalette (1) - yes, the one whitewashed by the Roman Catholic Church Administration:

"The Church will be in eclipse, the world will be in dismay. But now Enoch and Eli will come, filled with the spirit of God. They will preach with the might of God, and men of good will believe in God, and many souls will be comforted. They will make great steps forward through the virtue of the Holy Spirit and will condemn the devilish lapses of the Antichrist. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! There will be bloody wars and famines, plagues and infectious diseases. It will rain with a fearful hail of animals. There will be thunderstorms which will shake cities, earthquakes which will swallow up countries. Voices will be heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls, call for their death, an on another side death will be their torment. Blood will flow on all sides. Who will be the victor if God does not shorten the length of the test? All the blood, the tears and the prayers of the righteous, God will relent. Enoch and Eli will be put to death. Pagan Rome will disappear. The fire of Heaven will fall and consume three cities. All the universe will be struck with terror and many will let themselves be led astray because they have not worshipped the true Christ who lives among them. It is time; the sun is darkening; only faith will survive. 

The M+G+R Foundation comments: But of course, it is all a "conspiracy theory"....

Did you know that.... the Chinese military will consider launching a preemptive nuclear strike if the country finds itself faced with a critical situation in a war with another nuclear state? (1)
[our highlighting]

The newly revealed policy, called ''Lowering the threshold of nuclear threats,'' may contradict China's strategy of no first use of nuclear weapons under any circumstances, and is likely to fan concern in the United States, Japan and other regional powers about Beijing's nuclear capability.

The People's Liberation Army's strategic missile forces, the Second Artillery Corps, ''will adjust the nuclear threat policy if a nuclear missile-possessing country carries out a series of air strikes against key strategic targets in our country with absolutely superior conventional weapons,'' according to the documents, copies of which were obtained by Kyodo News.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Do notice that they have said that they will use nuclear weapons: If a country possessing nuclear missiles strikes China with superior conventional weapons (conventional weapons means non-nuclear weapons).

Superior conventional weapons are some of the ones which we have used in Afghanistan and Iraq, for example.

As the friend of The M+G+R Foundation who referred these news to us said: Given your step #1 event in the sequence of events, I had to bring this to your attention.

The Step No. 1 of the Sequence of Events (2) that we originally published around 1992 reads:

 Step No.1

  As a result of the errors spread by (Soviet) Russia, a nuclear attack is initiated against the United States of America and other nations of the Western World. China will play a major role. This will lead to a worldwide and brutal conflagration of devastating magnitude.

 a. Nations will be annihilated as it was specifically predicted by the Blessed Virgin Mary in Fátima, Portugal, in 1917.

b. Godlessness [this is a more comprehensive term than Communism] will engulf the world and the Church will be ruthlessly and brutally persecuted with the objective of destroying it. [Luke 21:9-10, Joel 1:5-7, 10-12, 19-20, Revelations 18:2-20]

As it has been the case in history, all prophecies made in the Name of God will be fulfilled.

From [Mr.] RB @ Spain  

Q. Would the following add new information to what miguel de Portugal already has?

The Book of Daniel mentions: "...other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river" ... "And one [of these two] said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?" [Daniel 12:5-6]

These two men are clearly John the Baptizer and John the Evangelist, as we can easily show.

"The man clothed in linen" is our Lord Jesus-Christ, and the "river" is His First Coming, thus:

Of this "other two" other men, John the Evangelist is the one who asked to the man clothed in linen how long shall it be to the end of these wonders, [Daniel 12:6] He then recorded the answer to that question for us in the Book of Revelations.

Daniel also gives us the response received by "....the one who asked: "And I heard the man clothed in linen ...that it should be unto a time, and times, and half a time.." [Daniel 12:7]

These are the very precise words found in the Book of Revelations: a time and (two) times, and half a time [Rev 12:14]

We can trace this same measure of time in two places of the Book of Revelations, written by John the Evangelist:

  1. "The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for one time, (two) times, and an half (of one time), out of the serpent's reach. [Rev 12:14]

  2. "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." [Rev. 11:3] 

As for the 1,260 days, we know that:

1 time + 2 times + 0.5 times = 3.5 times

3.5 years = 42 months = (30 x 42) days = 1260 days

And, as "coincidences" for remarking the message:

RB


A.
We certainly thank you for sharing this with our readers. To answer the original question - point blank: No; the above information has not added to the necessary Divinely Inspired data base that miguel de Portugal holds at this time. As a matter of fact there are other numbers associated with the above which are 1290 and 1335 days - which represent 1260 + 30 (one month) days and 1260 + 30 (one month) + 45 (one and a half month) days.


However, what the Holy Spirit of God has used you to reveal to us is the identity of  the three men involved in the scene - something that has always gone unnoticed to m de P.  Now, the question is: What may be the value of that?

The way we see it, this illumination is another solid confirmation of the perfect coherence within the Holy Scriptures. It is also the proof  that no one - not even miguel de Portugal - and certainly not the Church Administration - has exclusive access to the Lights of the Holy Spirit of God.

May this serve as an example to one and all to allow the Holy Spirit to illuminate your every thought - without any desire to "become a Prophet" but with the great desire to learn more and more about the Marvels that God has in store for those who seek them.

Did you know that.... satan, using honest (but disoriented) believers, has set up another scheme to destroy the credibility of Christianity? (1)

If there had been time, Marie Exley would have liked to start a family. Instead, the 32-year-old Army veteran has less than six months left, which she'll spend spreading a stark warning: Judgment Day is almost here.

Exley is part of a movement of Christians loosely organized by radio broadcasts and websites, independent of churches and convinced by their reading of the Bible that the end of the world will begin May 21, 2011.

To get the word out, they're using billboards and bus stop benches, traveling caravans of RVs and volunteers passing out pamphlets on street corners. Cities from Bridgeport, Conn., to Little Rock, Ark., now have billboards with the ominous message, and mission groups are traveling through Latin
America and Africa to spread the news outside the U.S.

and that according to their website (2)...

....the ministries featured... are listener-supported? Did you know that you can earmark your donation for particular uses? Help to proclaim the Gospel and the warning of Judgment Day May 21, 2011 by sending a donation.

Choose to donate to the general fund or earmark funds for mission trips or free Bible distribution. Ebible Fellowship also accepts donations earmarked for international billboards. (Please visit our photo gallery to see pictures of the May 21, 2011 Rapture and October 21, 2011 End of the World billboards!)

The M+G+R Foundation comments: The "Rapture Error" continues to confuse the faithful. For details on this issue we suggest a review of our recent document: A Tribulation Summary

In the meantime.... we wonder why would they need further donations at this time considering their claim that the "Rapture" is to take place on May 21st and the "End of the World" will be six months later, on October 21st? Maybe they are not as innocent, honest and disoriented as we would like to believe.

Posted on January 3rd, 2011 [The Most Holy Name of Jesus]

Did you know that.... Benedict XVI on Saturday announced that he would hold an interfaith meeting in Assisi, Italy, this October to mark the 25th anniversary of a watershed meeting held there by his predecessor, John Paul II? (1)
[our underscoring]

In the ever-shifting legacy of a complex papacy, the announcement seemed intended to show Benedict's good will toward other faiths after years in which he was criticized by Muslims, Jews and other Christian denominations, especially Anglicans. But it was also significant because as the longtime head of the Vatican's powerful doctrinal office when he was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, he was widely seen as having had serious reservations about the 1986 meeting, where leaders of all faiths met and prayed.

In a speech in 1990, then-Cardinal Ratzinger declared interreligious relativism - in effect, honoring other religions as equal to Christianity - "the fundamental problem of faith in our time." In 2000, he drew intense criticism from leaders of other faiths for "Dominus Jesus," a document that essentially stated that Christianity was the only true path to salvation. And it has been a recurring theme at the heart of his six-year-old papacy.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: How perfectly coherent! Whoever is to be the spring board for the False Christ must pave the way amongst the people of all faiths so that they swallow the bait with less difficulty. Since Maledict is that springboard (2) now, but had not been "invested" as such in 1990, he must now repair those "bridges" to people of other faiths.


This is the same situation with the Fatima message – about which we had to admonish him, through a letter, in 1997 (3). You see, he was still not aware about the use of Fatima for the planned manipulation of the End of These Times. Once he became "invested" as the springboard for the False Christ, the situation changed dramatically. Now Maledict passes himself off as a "Fatima Pope".

Perhaps it is time for us to tell you, in so many words, that: Maledict is to the manifestation of the False Christ (4) as miguel de Portugal is to the manifestation of the Real Second Coming of Christ.

As it should be - most will believe Maledict and a precious few will believe miguel de Portugal. Nothing has changed. The reason is the same given by Jesus for speaking in parables:

[10] And his disciples came and said to him: Why speakest thou to them in parables?

[11] Who answered and said to them: Because to you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven: but to them it is not given. [12] For he that hath, to him shall be given, and he shall abound: but he that hath not, from him shall be taken away that also which he hath. [13] Therefore do I speak to them in parables: because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. [14] And the prophecy of Isaias is fulfilled in them, who saith: By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand: and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive. [15] For the heart of this people is grown gross, and with their ears they have been dull of hearing, and their eyes they have shut: lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. [Matthew 13]

Brethren - it is really that simple!

Posted on January 1st, 2011 [Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God]

Quoting from the introduction to the latest posting (1) by Global Research.....

As 2010 draws to a close, we take a moment to reflect on the past year and contemplate what may be ahead in the months to come.

Undeniably, this has been a year of crisis, characterized by the plight of war, economic dislocation and environmental degradation. In a very direct way, the global economic and social crisis affects the livelihood of millions of people...

The global financial picture remains bleak for many who are struggling to support their families and worry about what the future holds. The current administration of the world's superpower has put forth copious promises for change, but as proof of change is not received, disillusionment is setting in.

War continues to be waged across the globe at unprecedented rates, amassing immeasurable monetary, psychological and human costs which affect all citizens of the world. In turn, a large share of the nations' resources (particularly in the United States) is channeled towards the production of advanced weapons systems to the detriment of education, health and housing.

The above evaluation of the global situation is indeed correct. Where we differ is that we know that: (a) All is on schedule (2); and (b) There will be no recovery until after the upcoming global cataclysm - a cataclysm which will make the one identified by the Judeo-Christian tradition as Noah's Flood tame by comparison.

Any false hope would be deadly, therefore, we encourage each and every one of you to receive the year 2011 in prayer and penitence. All we can do is cushion the blows that have already commenced.

May God have Mercy on His Elect. (3)

Notes

(1) If you are a new visitor, you may get the idea (from what you may read on this page) that we are part of what is known as the "liberal movement" within Catholicism. We strongly suggest that you first review our positions regarding the Pristine Catholic Faith (we said "Faith" and not "Church Administration),  RC Church Administration, Only Possible Changes Within the RCC Allowed by God and Our Function.

(2) If you prefer to evaluate positions using the "liberal", "moderate" and "conservative" labels, we would fall in the "practicing conservative" group, without the fanaticism which most "talking conservatives" exhibit. The difference between "practicing conservative" and "talking conservative" is that the first strives to live what Jesus Christ taught, while the second one, the "talking conservative", just talks about the faith and practices just enough for others to see.
