you know that.....
subjecting one's body to harsh physical
punishment is not a preferred method by God?
(2) As part of
the communications associated with Our Lady of the
Rosary of Fátima 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.
It does not matter how many Saints,
Popes and lay people have done it and continue to do so. (1)
If we want to offer bodily suffering to God (besides fasting, walking
to a sanctuary, kneeling up the stairs to a Basilica, etc. (2)
whatever intentions - our sins, the sins of others, conversion of X or
Y, etc. - we are to present to God, through prayer, a "blank check" for
the intentions that you wish to suffer. He will decide when, how and
We know - we use such method and, at times, the "account against which
the check was drawn" barely had enough "funds to cover said check" but
somehow God saw to it that they were stretched to cover "the collection
of said blank check".
Why subjecting one's body to harsh physical
punishment is not a "preferred method"?
Using such techniques our ego or masked/repressed sexual desires may
enter into play at the subconcious level. Let us not forget that sadism
and masochism are two
ways to express deviant sexual pleasure and satan would not miss an
opportunity like a soul willing to suffer to twist the situation and
harm the soul. When we fully and truly defer to God - satan is blocked.
The only reference that we have found in the Holy Scriptures regarding
self inflicted harm follows:
Then Elias said to the prophets of Baal: Choose you one bullock and
dress it first, because you are many: and call on the names of your
gods, but put no fire under.
26 And they took the bullock which he
gave them, and dressed it: and they called on the name of Baal from
morning even till noon, saying: O Baal, hear us. But there was no
voice, nor any that answered: and they leaped over the altar that they
had made. 27 And when it was now noon, Elias jested at them, saying:
Cry with a louder voice: for he is a God, and perhaps he is talking, or
is in an inn, or on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep, and must be
awaked. 28 So they cried with a loud voice, and cut themselves after
their manner with knives and lancets, till they were all covered with
blood.[1 Kings 18]
We realize that our statement will "raise a few eyebrows", so to speak,
but that is precisely why we exist. Just think of the "eyebrows" Our
Lord Jesus Christ and John the Baptizer caused to rise?
From (Mr.) LP
have read the English translation of “The Crusade of Fatima” (the
1947-1948 edition, written by John DeMarchi. Generally,
this book is consistent with your own articles on Fatima (1). My comments within
brackets , my highlights in bold
tone of the book is serene and peaceful. Despite its “Crusade” title,
it is not a call to arms; it is a call to prayer.
of the account of the 5/13/17 apparition is a promise of a 7th
appearance of Mary at the Cove.
She said, “I came to ask you to come here for six consecutive months,
on the thirteenth day, at this same hour. I will tell you later who I
am and what I want. And I shall return here a seventh time.” (p. 15)
47 contains his translation of the July 13 secret that has been
revealed so far. In some ways, it is like your previous translation,
and in some ways it is like the new one you set forth in the last
52-53 contain Jacinta’s vision of the “Holy Father in a very big house”
and her vision of “all those roads and lanes and fields covered with
people crying from hunger” and “the Holy Father in a church praying
before the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
74) Mary appeared to the children on 8/19/17, at Valinhos, as a reward
for their fidelity under persecution. She said, “In the last month, in
October, I shall perform a miracle so that all may believe in my
apparitions. If they had not taken you to the village, the miracle
would have been greater. Saint Joseph will come with the Baby Jesus to
give peace to the world. Our Lord also will come to bless the people.
Beside, Our Lady of the Rosary and Our Lady of Sorrows will come.” I
did not know of these additional apparitions that were part of the
October 13 miracle until now.
102) In the discussion of the October 13 miracle, there is this: “Our
Lord would have stopped the great World War then raging and given peace
to the world through Saint Joseph, Jacinta later declared, if the
children had not been arrested and taken to Ourem.”
[ How great an effect some “small” events can have on the whole world! ]
the Third Secret: “It was only after many years that any of the
substance of this secret revelation was made known by Lucia; and even to this date there are important words of Our Lady yet
undisclosed.” (p. 110) [Bold added by me]
Jacinta was dying, she prophesied World War II. She told Lucia, “I
think of Francisco and how I’d love to see him. But I also think of the
war that is going to come. So many people will die and so many will go
to Hell. Many cities will be burned to the ground and many priests will
be killed. Look, Lucia, I’m going to Heaven. But when you see that
night lightened by the strange light, you also run away to Heaven.”
[Lucia replied] “Don’t you see it’s impossible to run away to Heaven?”
9. Jacinta also prophesied disasters for Portugal and Spain (p.
people amend their lives,” Jacinta said to Mother Godinho, “Our Lord
will forgive the world, but if they do not, the punishment will come.
If men do not amend their
lives, Almighty God will send the world, beginning with Spain, a
punishment such as never has been seen.” She then spoke of “great
world events that were to take place around the year 1940.”
pp. 148-149, there is the history of the initial investigation of
Fatima by the diocesan bishop, including an account of his interview
with Lucia on 6/13/21.
155-161 cover Lucia’s history from 1927 onward, including her
apparitions of Christ and of Mary, and their requests and warnings. Key
1927, at Tuy, Lucia “received permission from Heaven to reveal the
first two parts of the secret, the vision of Hell, and the urgent need
for devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. … Lucia informed her
confessors, her Mother Provincial, the Bishop of Leiria, and the
Reverend Joseph Galamba of this. The third part of the
secret revealed to the three children at the Cova de Iria on July 13,
1917, has not yet been revealed. According to instructions from above,
Lucia has written it down. It was sealed and by an order of the Bishop
of Leiria placed in his diocesan archives. No one but Lucia knows its
contents and it is to be opened and read in 1960.” (p. 155, bold
added by me)
years later, in 1929, Our Lady again appeared to Lucia while she was
praying in the chapel at Tuy,” to request “the consecration of Russia
to my Immaculate Heart.” (p. 155)
156, bold added by me) “Lucia made known this request to her
confessors. One of them, the Reverend Francisco Rodrigues, SJ, told her
to write it down. He showed this letter to the Bishop and gave him the
full details. Father Rodrigues also had it brought to the
attention of the Holy Father. Three years passed during which nothing
was accomplished. Lucia again wrote again to the Bishop, adding the
of Our Lord, “ … the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, but it
will be late.”
156-157) Lucia told Father Jongen that, “We did not know whether it
meant a Pope or a king. However, Our Lady did speak of Pius XI.” “But
the war did not begin under Pius XI,” Father Jongen countered. “The
annexation of Austria gave occasion for the war,” replied Lucia. “When
the Munich Accord was made, the sisters rejoiced for they thought that
peace was secured. Unhappily, I know more than they.” “And what about
that great sign that God was going to give the world that He was going
to punish it for its crimes?” “Lucia answered that this sign was the
occurrence of the ‘Great Northern Lights’ of 1939 when unusual lights
appeared in the skies of the world.”
158) The consecration performed by Pius XII in late 1942 “was a
decisive event in the history of the world; it marks the beginning of a
new era, the Age of Mary. The following spring, Our Blessed Lord
appeared to Lucia to express the joy of His Heart over this
consecration. Lucia tells about it in her letter to the Bishop of
Gurza, her spiritual director. … “Your Excellency,” Lucia wrote, “The
good Lord has already shown me His pleasure in the act of the Holy
Father and the various Bishops, although incomplete according to His
desire. In exchange, He promises to bring the war soon to an end, but
the conversion of Russia will not take place yet: if the Bishops of
Spain heed the desires of Our Lord and engage in a true reform of the
people … good; if not, she (Russia) will again be the enemy with which
God will punish them once more.”
159) Lucia said, “This is the penance which the good Lord now asks: the
sacrifice that every person has to impose on himself is to lead a life
of justice in the observance of His Law. He requires that this way be
made known to souls. For many, thinking that the word penance means
great austerities and not feeling in themselves the strength or
generosity for these, lose heart and rest in a life of lukewarmness and
sin. Last Thursday, at midnight, while I was in chapel with my
superiors’ permission, Our Lord said to me, ‘The sacrifice required of
every person is the fulfillment of his duties in life and the
observance of My law. This is the penance I now seek and require.’”

From (Mr.) TK
Can you tell me if you think America is "Mystery Babylon The
Great" spoken of in Isaiah, Jeremiah and Rev 17,18?
A. That is a question that
has a two part answer since Babylon the Great is represented in the
civil world as well as in the religious world.
You may find the full response at:
From (Mr.) IW
The US invaded Iraq on
Baghdad on 4/9/03, and declared "major combat" to be over on 5/1/03.
Therefore, the US will have been (literally) "king of Babylon" for 7
years, ending sometime in March or April.
If "7 years" is 7 years of 30-day months (twice 1,260 days), the seven
years end sometime in February or March.
If "7 years" is twice the two mystical date numbers given in Daniel
12:11-12 (1,290 or 1,335 days), then the "7 years" of American rule of
(literal) Babylon end between April and August of this year.
Wouldn't it be strange if this time period (February through August)
maps out the duration of parts of the Sequence (1)?

Did you know that.... the Marian Movement of

and when they describe the return of
Christ in glory he says that: "...his Coming will coincide with
the union of several elements:..."

which is "the advent of the Eucharistic Reign of Christ". Explaining

Upon reviewing a letter sent to fr. Roux, MMP USA Director, on
September 29, 2000 (2)
we realized that the
documents, from which we had quoted, had disappeared from their Site. A
supporter did a
thorough search of their pages and could not find any of the documents
about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart (1) which had been rewritten to
define the Triumph as shown above.
The original statement
[September 13, 2000 - by
electronic Date Stamp] read thus:
The triumph is not to be confounded
with the transformation of the
heavens and the earth, nor should it be confused with the return of
Jesus. Her triumph is the fulfillment of her mission, the
acknowledgement by the Church of all her titles, her privileges, and
her rightful place in the mystery of Redemption, and, finally in the
crushing of the ancient serpent's head with her heel (the army of her
little ones prepared by her). At that moment, Our Lady's mission is
successfully completed and her triumph finally achieved, thus preparing
the way for the return of Jesus to establish his kingdom on earth. May
it be soon!
We shall soon publish another vision of said Triumph which had been
there for all to see since the published part of the Secret saw the
light decades ago, yet has not been seen until now.

From (Mr.) MD
I read this and chuckled to myself (maybe
it's just me), but
considering that Jesus managed with just 12 disciples, this seems a
communiqué revealed that the largest item of the budget is that
concerning the payment of the 2,668 employees of the Holy See."
That's from an article on Zenit (1)
titled "Vatican Accounts
Could Improve in 2010".
So, if the "largest item" of the Vatican's budget is giving money to
2,668 Vatican employees, what exactly does that mean? It sounds
the Vatican is probably as good a place to work as Congress is here in
Not completely changing the subject, but that article made me think of
the guy last year on Facebook [on
Zenit (2) ] who
suggesting (as many have before) that the Vatican should exchange its
treasures for food. The official response from the Vatican was
basically the Church "cannot sell them" - which is directly contrary to:
saith to him: If thou wilt be perfect, go sell what thou hast, and give
to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come follow
So, while the Vatican continues to ignore
perfectly clear verses like Matthew 19:21 above, I wonder how long
before the "Official Catholic Bible" starts to resemble top-secret
documents released by the CIA... with lots of blacked-out material. (3)
God is Good!
M+G+R Foundation Comments: They have been doing it already for a
long time in conjunction with the always New and Improved versions of
Marian Messages. Because most
of the Faithful believe in the Church Administrators and not in God, they can
get away with it.
