you know who... are today's equivalent to the martyrs of
As the reader may remember,
after Nero set parts of Rome on fire to carry out his agenda
(rebuilding the area in accordance to his plans), he had to find
scapegoats to blame for the fire. Christians were chosen to be the ones
to pin the blame on.
Today, the story is not much different, except the martyrs
come from every corner of the world and from both sides of today’s wars.
A war on terror was invented and engineered in order to
assume control of the Middle East. Today's martyrs are our children,
forced to fight and die in a manufactured war (like the manufactured
fire in Nero’s Rome), as well as the innocent civilians from the
"enemy" countries who are paying dearly for it.
It is interesting that certain scholars claim that the
number 666 - the number of the beast - was the numerical equivalent of
the emperor's name - Nero. Obviously, nothing has changed
regarding who is in charge nor
what the outcome will be.
you remember what Jesus said... about precisely These
Providentially it is found on today's Mass (Memorial of the First
Martyrs of the Church of Rome) Gospel reading:
out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come
in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. 6 You
will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not
alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7
will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be
famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the
of birth pains.
9 Then you will be
handed over to be persecuted and put to
death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that
time many will turn
away from the faith and will betray and hate each
other, 11 and many false
prophets will appear and deceive many people.
Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow
cold, 13 but he who stands
firm to the end will be saved.[Matthew 24]

you know that... according to Robert Jay Lifton, Josef
Mengele – one of Hitler’s leading killer-physicians in Auschwitz –
identified himself as a Catholic?
"What we know about the
thirty-two-year-old man who arrived in Auschwitz on 30 May 1943 is not
especially remarkable. He was the second son of a well-to-do Bavarian
industrialist - not from an 'old' German family but from one that could
be considered nouveau riche. The family is described as 'strict
Catholic,' and Mengele identified himself as a Catholic on all his
official forms, rather than using the more favored Nazi category
'believer in God.'" (1)

Psychology of Genocide, Basic Books, 1986, pp. 338-39: From
chapter 17, "Dr. Auschwitz: Josef Mengele"
The M+G+R Foundation comments: As we have said many
times, being "enrolled" in the Catholic Church means little except for
statistical purposes; what only matters is the sincere effort to live
the teachings of Jesus Christ.

on June 24, police raided the
offices of a panel appointed by the Catholic church to investigate
clerical sex abuse in Belgium? (1)
The police detained nine bishops and
staff for several hours, seized documents and computers from the
Belgian archbishop's office and opened a prelate's crypt in a cathedral.
"It is now up to (Belgian) bishops to care for victims and follow-up
their complaints," the panel said in a statement.
Danneels resigned in January after victims said he had not responded to
The Catholic panel had been in existence for over a decade, but for
most of that time, it dealt with only 30 complaints and took no
discernible action on them.
The M+G+R Foundation comments:
From what we can read, the
situation must of great gravity since such action has not been seen
since the communist persecutions of the Church. Belgium would not
act in such a manner unless it was standing on very solid ground.
As a matter of curious coincidence, back in 1997 the Opus Dei was
labeled a Sect
by a Belgian Parliamentary Commission.

The letter from (Mr.) IW dated June 26th (see below) made me think of a
fundraising letter received from the Pontifical North American College,
dated May 2010. It begins with this quote from a recent graduate:
"Being in Rome makes one proud to be a
Catholic. In a city filled with consecrated religious, priests, and
pilgrims, there's a sense that everyone there is seeking to deepen
their relationship with the Lord" -- Reverend Shane Deman '08
The letter continues:

our very souls can be revitalized like nowhere else. ... Our
seminarians are also blessed to enjoy a special relationship with our

In the June 22nd Health and Science Section of the Washington Post we
are told that the Sun is not producing sunspots in amounts that it
should be. The 11 year cycle of sunspot activity began to die
down in 2007. But an expected rise in sunspot activity has not
occurred and some scientists are wondering if we are about to witness
what occurred between 1645 and 1715 AD, known as the Little Ice Age
when there were colder than average winters.
In the past, high activity has had a warming influence. One sidelight
is that during these periods ice core samples and tree rings show
increase in certain isotopes. For example, during the Little Ice Age
wood was denser because the tree rings were closer together. Of
note, the famous Stradivarius violins were made during this time.
Another article in the same section states that scientists found a big
drop in the strength of the solar magnetic fields. The fields are said
to puncture the Sun's surface causing sunspots to appear.
Scientists are baffled when things don't go according to their laws and
predictions. The best laid plans of mice and men...

The following comment was noted on an online forum. I have no idea as
to whether the poster is a priest or layman. But he most certainly has
imbibed both the Leaven of Escriva - and the new 'company policy' which
Ratzinger has so cleverly stated (in very subtle terms and subliminal
language) as the current correct thought. Or should I call this the
never was any sexual abuse by Catholic Priests. They are men of God,
sworn to celibacy. Are you really that naive that you think these pious
men would risk going to hell for eternity? As for this equally
ridiculous charge of gay sex between adults in the Vatican (*), it is the work of Satan, manipulating
the common people, the non-believers, the way Satan always does. Until
you are a righteous Catholic, you will fall prey to the deviousness of
This is a reference to the gay escort service in the Vatican
uncovered earlier this year by Italian State Police, as well as
historical realities of concubines & brothels in the Vatican".
Although this is the statement/opinion of just one individual whose
mental state I cannot ascertain, it symbolizes/summarizes the mentality
of those who place the Church Administration above God.
Thus, the conclusions that many of the disoriented faithful, who share
same imaginary view, will reach may be some of the following:
1) "Satan'' is now defined as
that which is in opposition to and/or critical of the Vatican, its
Administrators and the Pope.
2) Those who do not speak & write such 'Correct Thinking With the
Vatican' are of Satan.
3) Automatic and implicit 'Infallibility' is now applied to each and
every one of the 'radiant new priests"...of the Opus Dei mode
which Ratzinger has now held up as the only way to go.
4) Demonic Mind Control is now defined as that which makes men in any
way critical of the Vatican and the pope.
5) A Righteous Catholic is now one who unquestioningly thinks as the
Administrators of Religion tell him/her to.
6) Reality is now: 'What we say it is'.
This is obviously from the pit of Hell itself. The chief indicator of
the demonic is the principle of Inversion. Not merely a lie; but
presenting what is false as truth itself. Presenting 'bad' as 'good',
cloaking it as an angel of light. Black
is now White.
The keys to making this work are banking on the principle of Denial (1) and the altered states
of memory in many people - both the result of conditioning.
With the right conditions and application of mind control techniques (2), it is possible to make
a person not only eat refuse, but to believe it is something else....
and that they enjoy it.
The 60s Sci-Fi series, The Outer

controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring
up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a
whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical.
We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a
soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit
quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there
is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate
in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery
which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits." (3)

From m de P @ EU and US
A dear Family member - concerned about the multiplying
catastrophic events worldwide (real or promoted by disinformers) -
wrote to us recently. She wonders whether she is doing all that needs
to be done in preparation for what already is being manifested
throughout the world, and will soon engulf the entire world.
Our answer was straight from God: Martha,
Martha, thou art careful, and art troubled about many things: 42 But
one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not
be taken away from her. [Luke
What did He
mean this time, 2000 years later? Considering that in YouTube alone
about 24 hours worth of video is being posted every minute (1). Anyone could
easily fall into the "black hole" of internet-published information and
neglect what is the "one thing (that) is necessary": The never ending
effort - without fanaticism - to draw closer to God. It is essential to
sensitivity to the guidance of the Holy Spirit because, without it -
and regardless of how many "informational" sites one visits every day
- the individual does not have the proverbial prayer.
As we have often repeated: All that anyone needs to know to prepare for
what is already being manifested - from schedules to agendas to
sequences to physical preparations to key players to what to avoid -
has been published by us for quite some time, and is on-line at http://www.mgr.org.
One, then, may ask: If you have
written about it all, why do you still frequently remind your readers
about the earthly events associated with the End of These Times?
Because: (a) obviously we are not getting through to many that
"this party is just about over"; and (b) 70 % of the visits to our
pages are from first timers.
Unfortunately, the level of denial is frightening.
Why frightening?, you may also
ask. Because the more an individual who belongs to the Elect denies reality, the more that
individual will have to suffer before the Second Coming of Christ.
(Note: only God knows who is among the Elect (2)!)
As far back as in the times of the prophet Zacharias the world had been
warned about this suffering:
8 And there shall be in all the earth,
saith the Lord, two parts in it shall be scattered, and shall perish:
but the third part shall be
left therein. 9 And I
will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them
as silver is refined: and I
will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on my name, and I
will hear them. I will say: Thou art my people: and they shall
say: The Lord is my God. [Zacharias
those who should, but do not know His Name, will have to be heavily
"refined" - have to suffer much more - until finally His Name is
learned [read: established a solid link with God] and then, finally, He
will hear them and the painful
refining process will be stopped.

Our Lord Jesus Christ]
If there were..... only
two last messages that we were allowed to remind you of today - more
than any other day - they would be:
Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall
be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock, 25 And the
rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon
that house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock.
26 And every
one that heareth these my words, and doth them not, shall be like a
foolish man that built his house upon the sand, 27 And the rain fell,
and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house,
and it fell, and great was the fall thereof. [Matthew 7]
Whatever is not built upon the fundamental Rock - Jesus Christ, the
Living Word of God - will be washed away soon. No substitutes are
allowed - none!
that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he
that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. 38 And
he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me.
39 He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his
life for me, shall find it. [Matthew 10]
God must be first in
our lives - no exceptions
Just as He said - not even parents or children may come before God.
Believe me, those words were not added to the Gospel by some fanatical
Scribe or copyist - they accurately express the Will of God. Should you
doubt us - "ask" Abraham [Genesis
Do keep in mind, however, that God will never
ask us to do
anything against Divine or Civil Law; He may allow satan to test us but
He will not allow us to be tested beyond our strength. Then, one may
ask: "Why didn't Abraham question the command of God to sacrifice his
son?" To which we would answer: "Because the "Thou shalt not kill"
command was officially established (again (1)
) through the Ten
Commandments given by God through Moses - about 380 years later
(according to Ussher)."
If you have not reached this point yet in your Faith Journey, we
entreat you to unceasingly pray to God so that He may grant you
the Grace to accept and live them.
(1) From the
beginning,- just as the divorce law [Matthew 19:8] -
taking another human's life was strictly forbidden and carried a very
high Divine penalty even if it was done as punishment for murder - "....but whosoever shall kill Cain, shall

whosoever found him should not kill him." [Genesis

children by blowing opium smoke in their faces. Whole communities
hooked on heroin with few opportunities for treatment.
Use of opiates such as heroin and opium has
doubled in Afghanistan in the last five years, the U.N. said Monday, as
hundreds of thousands of Afghans turn to drugs to escape the misery of
poverty and war.
Nearly 3 percent of Afghans aged 15 to 64 are
addicted to opiates, according to a study by the U.N. Office on Drugs
and Crime. The U.N. defines addicts as regular users.
That puts Afghanistan, along with Russia and
Iran, as the top three countries for opiate drug use worldwide,
according to Sarah Waller, an official of the U.N.'s drug office in
Kabul. She said a 2005 survey found about 1.4 percent of Afghan adults
were opiate addicts. (1)

paying for these imposed "democracies" while the Media convinces the

crimes against His Creation.

went to court with a prepared statement.
U.S. District Judge Miriam Cedarbaum refused to
hear him read it Monday, instead challenging the Pakistan-born American
citizen to just say "what happened."
unapologetic, matter-of-fact courtroom colloquy that followed,
Shahzad offered chilling details about how he trained with the
Pakistani Taliban to build bombs, then returned to the U.S. to launch
an attack that would avenge attacks on Muslims by U.S. forces overseas.
Authorities say following his capture, Shahzad voluntarily started
talking about the botched bombing right away — a pattern that
continued in open court, where he agreed to plead guilty to 10
terrorism and weapons counts without the benefit of a plea deal and
with certainty he'd face life in prison.
"I want to plead guilty, and
I'm going to plead guilty 100 times over," he said.
Until U.S. forces leave Muslim territory, he added, "we will be attacking U.S."

Listen to it, if you have not yet
developed an application that will let priests celebrate Mass with an
iPad on the altar instead of the regular Roman missal? (1)
The Rev. Paolo Padrini, a consultant
with the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Social Communications, said
Friday the free application will be launched in July in English,
French, Spanish, Italian and Latin.
Padrini, 36, said he expected priests who have to travel a lot for work
would find the application most useful, noting that he recently had to
celebrate Mass in a small parish where the missal was "a small book, a
bit dirty, old."
"If I had had my iPad with me, it would've been better than this old,
tiny book," he said.
Pope Benedict XVI, a classical music lover who was reportedly given an
iPod in 2006, has sought to reach out to young people through new

From “1984” by George Orwell
"The war is merely an imposture. The war is waged by each
ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is...
to keep the structure of society intact. The primary aim of modern
warfare is to use up the products of the machine without raising the
general standard of living."
"An all around increase in wealth threatened the
destruction of a hierarchical society. If leisure and security were
enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings... would become
literate and would learn to think for themselves. They would sooner or
later realize that the privileged minority had no function, and they
would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only
possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance."
"All the beliefs, habits, tastes, emotions, mental
attitudes that characterize our time are really designed to... prevent
the true nature of present-day society from being perceived. If the
'High' are to keep their places permanently, then the prevailing mental
condition must be controlled insanity."

.....the US Secretary of Defense claims that Iran could
'hundreds' of missiles at Europe?
US intelligence has shown
Iran could launch an attack against Europe with "scores or hundreds" of
missiles, prompting major changes to US missile defenses, Pentagon
chief Robert Gates said on Thursday.
President Barack Obama in September cited a mounting danger
from Iran's arsenal of short and medium-range missiles when he
announced an overhaul of US missile defense plans.
The M+G+R Foundation comments: This, of
course, would also be
the usual "sabre rattling," except it was the Secretary of Defense
speaking..... paving the way for the scheduled military strike against
Iran. (Note that Mr. Gates was first appointed to this post by Former
President Bush in December 2006; Obama has kept him as a Bush

Valero - the "Opus Dei man" in Great Britain - like most of them,
more on public relations than in prayer and the Sacraments.
“We are working for the Church and
part of the Church, but in a sense independent of it,” said Jack Valero, a coordinator of the
project along with journalist Austen Ivereigh and broadcaster
Kathleen Griffin. “We realized that it is laypeople who should be the
experts here. We had the idea of creating a team of people who would be
prepared to be trained to speak up in the media, and we put out a call
for volunteers. We wondered how many would come forward, but we found
huge numbers — they just kept on coming forward, and in the end, we had
to close the doors because we had so many.” The call for volunteers was
for Catholics between the ages of 20 and 40.
“We found that several came from the movements — Opus Dei, the
Neocatechumenate (the Neocatechumenal Way), Communion and Liberation,
and so on — but there are also a good many young people who are simply
practicing their faith, living it out, active in their own local
parishes and keen to speak up,” said Valero. “I didn’t have so much
faith that we’d find so many; I thought we’d have to dig deep. But we
were almost overwhelmed by the numbers.”
As a director of Opus Dei in
Britain, Valero is no stranger to controversy.
The M+G+R Foundation comments: This is how
Opus Dei personnel draw from other groups (and from trusting
non-aligned Catholics), and harness them to carry out different facets
of the Opus Dei agenda.
Let us not forget what the True Way (2) - Jesus Christ - taught
11 And when they shall bring you into the
synagogues, and to magistrates and powers, be not solicitous how or
what you shall answer, or what you shall say; 12 For the Holy Ghost
shall teach you in the same hour what you must say.
No coaching is needed when the words (the defense or explanation)
are from God.

Every time New York City
(NYC) Archbishop Timothy Dolan offers mass from the high altar of St.
Patrick's Cathedral in NYC, he cannot help but see a monument to.....
Ecclesiastical Freemasonry. (1)
No, not the organ - the Rose Window above it. It is a memorial to
Clendenin J. Ryan, Jr. (2)
Where is the connection? one may ask.... Mr. Ryan was grandson of
multi-millionaire industrialist and Catholic philanthropist, Thomas
Fortune Ryan. The Ryan family was 'very important' (financially) to
five NYC Archbishops, funding many of their building projects.
"Ryan was deeply committed
as a financial backer of numerous schemes involving foreign intrigue
bordering on violating the Neutrality Act with another spy master and
former Office of Strategic Services (OSS) Colonel by the name of Ulius
L. "Pete" Amoss who ran the Baltimore, MD based International Services
of Information, Inc. (ISI) and GramTrade International which was later
merged into the Boston Metals Processing Company of Baltimore,
identified as a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) commercial cover
proprietary by Robert Maxwell of Iran-Contra fame.......
(Amoss) also delved into methods of programming paid assassins to do
his bidding overseas and he worked very closely with Major Carleton S.
Coon, an anthropologist, OSS member and an Egyptologist on this project
which eventually was merged into the MK/ULTRA operations of James J.
Angleton and Ray S. Cline of the CIA...."
Ryan was married twice; he married his first wife, Countess Marie-Anne
Wurmbrand-Stuppach of Vienna, Austria in 1934, their marriage was
annulled in 1935, and in 1937, he married his second wife, Jean Harder
of NY. Harder had the unfortunate task of having to pay the balance of
the donation for the Rose Window which Ryan had promised to his very
close friend (and fellow Sen. McCarthy enthusiast), Cardinal Francis
Spellman. Ryan committed suicide in 1957, just as his father had done.
An often unnoticed plaque denoting the memorial window caught my eye,

A. Thank you for sharing another confirmation of the
reality that most everyone wishes to deny. It was precisely yesterday
when we read the following - and very related - quote:

power. To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in
ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of

Which made us realize what causes "denial": Most humans refuse to
because the truth is brutal.
Of course, the problem is that "refusing to acknowledge" does
not cause it to "go away". On the contrary - whatever we ignore will
only fester and will yield worse results as it overtakes and suffocates
everything, just as unchecked weeds do.

Regarding the 9/11
conspiracy [Post of June 14th (1)]....
As with the Kennedy assassinations, I never researched it
myself. I can easily believe that there are conspiracies associated
with all these events, plots involving high level, well established
Powers. And I easily believe that the official explanations are
Beyond that, I never investigated ... I have had my hands
other things to investigate and write about. It follows that I have not
investigated the specific claim of the airplane which allegedly hit The
However, my question is what happened to the plane and its
in this case?
I do think it is interesting that one of the passengers was
Olson, a right-wing radio personality, and that (as with several other
passengers) she was able to make a cell phone call to her husband to
tell him of the hijacking.
Nevertheless, based on what I see in a Wikipedia report I
of the no-plane theory as part of the unrevealed truth about 9/11.
Greater and more
complex cover ups have been made - therefore neither the alleged cell
phone calls nor the Wiki report, on their own, can prove the existence
of said plane.
We had not given a second thought to the Pentagon alleged
it did not matter - since it would fall under the overall "allowed to
happen" terrorist plot. What galvanized us was seeing the video (which
was not even purchased for itself, it was part of a close-out package
containing two other videos of interest - Inside The Vatican and Inside The Mecca). Since we had it
- we eventually viewed it to see how badly it would breach security by
showing too much of the Pentagon. The Pentagon "attack" footage came as
a surprise since we did not know it was part of the documentary.
Unless my eyes - and the eyes of others who have viewed it
me, we would tend to place more weight on the plane-less images viewed.

with his arms raised along a highway was struck by lightning in a
thunderstorm Monday night and burned to the ground? (1)
The "King of Kings" statue, one of
southwest Ohio's most familiar landmarks, had stood since 2004 at the
evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north
The lightning strike set the statue ablaze around 11:15 p.m., Monroe
police dispatchers said.
The sculpture, 62 feet tall and 40 feet wide at the base, showed Jesus
from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way
the arms were raised, similar to a referee signaling a touchdown. It
was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is

The inspector general's staff interviewed 36 senior officials involved

Are any of them, even just one of them human?
Will every one of them remain dedicatedly and obediently silent until a
century would pass or have they already been physically SILENCED by the
powers that be....... how far reaching is this lie?
A. How far reaching?
you ask. We answer: Beyond
understanding.... but, as our Lord Jesus Christ said:
For whatsoever things you have spoken in
darkness, shall be published in the light: and that which you have
spoken in the ear in the chambers, shall be preached on the housetops.
....and this has already started and is reaching its
peak. For example....
Yesterday the Daily Beast's
Phil Shenon reported that Pentagon investigators are frantically
searching for Assange, the white-haired and willfully inscrutable
founder of WikiLeaks, in the hopes of stopping him from exposing more
than 200,000 classified diplomatic cables: "Pentagon investigators are
trying to determine the whereabouts of the Australian-born founder of
the secretive website WikiLeaks for fear that he may be about to
publish a huge cache of classified State Department cables that, if
made public, could do serious damage to national security, government
officials tell The Daily Beast."
When one becomes thoroughly familiar with the
assassinations of both Kennedys - not with rumors, but with facts (3) one begins to understand
the level of "sworn to secrecy" and/or the "law of fear" that rules.
When one views the National Geographic video Inside The Pentagon (4a) (4b), obviously published
haste by National Geographic right
after 9-11, a video of which hundreds of thousands of originals
exist throughout the world, the first and main question that arise is
your own: "Have these men
individuals) been sworn to secrecy - is their fanatic loyalty to their
commanders so great?"
Right there, in full view - frontal and aerial is the Pentagon
building immediately after the attack. Firemen and paramedics scurrying
around yet no part of a passenger airplane is seen anywhere. No wings,
no engines, nothing! Not only that - the now famous security camera
footage showing the "just before impact and impact" images, which was
extracted from the authorities after years of legal battle, was already
in the National Geographic's video issued in 2002. No passenger plane
is seen in that footage either.
Then - either the actual news and security videos are lying or those
emergency workers who were present at the scene were brainwashed or
sworn to secrecy.

[This is a
follow up letter and response for the one published on June 11th]
After carefully reviewing your response to my letter (June
11th post (1)),
a few things came to light.
1.) In contemplation of the past
42 months since our last
correspondence, It dawned on me (more like struck me in the face)
how arrogant I was believing that I could
others eyes and ears, to the truth when all the while it
is truly God that had directed events not my words or
actions. I was
also under the assumption that my eyes and ears were opened when in
fact they were not. How foolish I am to think that I have
prayers regarding this matter had indeed been answered however not in
the way I had thought they might be. Praise to God who certainly knows
what is best!
2.) Another slap on the cheek,
came when I reflected on how much I
prayed or did not pray. I would say a decade of the rosary, but only
when I had the time. I prayed, but only at my convenience, a thought
that now brings tears to my eyes, realizing that I was only available
to God at my convenience! what a terrible and arrogant
must be! Indeed I tried to serve both God and Mammon, and from
experience it can't be done. I am thankful to be humbled.
3.) I am so far from the proverbial
finish line, and maybe that's
all I need to know right now. I hope that the lessons shown will
lessons learned. I can only pray for forgiveness
for what is indeed my
error. I am thankful that God has spoken through you to me so that I
could understand that believing, the occasional prayer, and being a
"good person" are indeed not enough.
4) On the side I do find it interesting
that it was 42 months
since my last correspondence, which by the way was very unintentional,
I had been prayerfully studying the bible that day, and with the
assistance of the Holy Spirit I opened the book to Revelation 8, and
felt compelled to write. In fact after I had typed the message I
intended to re-view it and make some changes, but when I meant to
the "backspace" key I actually hit the "send" key! I hope that God
will use me to fulfill his will as I blindly follow.
God bless you and Thank you,
It was a joy to read your words which are obviously from
the heart; words
which were, in a special way, sealed by God.
We shall explain...
Once again the timing of your letter and its contents
bear His seal
- His stamp of inspiration, if you will.
Your letter was written and received on June 11th - the Feast of the

. The Gospel reading for the Mass was:
3 And he spoke to them this parable,
saying: 4 What man of you that hath an hundred
sheep: and if he
shall lose one of them, doth he not leave the ninety-nine in the
desert, and go after that which was lost, until he find it? 5
And when he hath found it, lay it upon his shoulders,
rejoicing: 6 And coming
home, call together his friends and neighbours,
saying to them: Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was
lost? 7 I say to you, that even so there shall be
joy in heaven
upon one sinner that doth penance, more than upon ninety-nine just who
need not penance. [Luke 15]
As you can see, you have given Heaven - and us, on Earth - a very
special joy on that most significant day.

To ensure the Israeli bombers pass unmolested, Riyadh has
carried out tests to make certain its own jets are not scrambled and
missile defence systems not activated. Once the Israelis are through,

burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea
became blood: 9 And the third part of those creatures died, which had
life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed. [Rev. 8]
....in the light of recent events, we
may see some parallels?
For example, first consider the "as it were a great mountain, burning with
" to be the burning oil rig collapsing into the sea; then,
consider “the sea became blood

It does not take much to span from the Revelations prophecy to the
current news reports.
Perhaps we should take this apparently coincidental parallel one step
further by taking a look of what happened just beforehand, when the
first angel sounded his trumpet.

angel sounded the trumpet,
and there followed
hail and fire, mingled with blood, and it was cast on the earth, and

Hail is ice and flowing lava could be
viewed as blood; and, without a doubt, all that was on the earth within
a volcano's reach was certainly burnt. That was the exact scenario
presented by the Icelandic volcano which erupted from below a glacier
issuing tons upon tons of ice, fire and awesome rivers of lava.
It is interesting to note that the volcano went on its rampage on April
14th closing the European airspace until April 20th.... just when, on
the same day, the BP oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and
collapsed into the sea "...and

fell from heaven, burning as it were a torch, and it fell on the third
part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters:

part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters,
because they were made bitter.

According to several news sources, dead fish are washing
up on the shores of Alabama and Texas. It has also been said that if
the well is not stopped, the oil could reach as far as Europe.
This brings to mind: 8 And the

burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea
became blood: 9 And the third part of those creatures died, which had

The "as it were a mountain" being the burning oil rig,
the oil is the blood.

you know that... the Sacred Scriptures also tells us that
the son of the Forrest an embroiderer of Bethlehem slew Goliath the
" after having told us that it was David?
This is a perfect example of how the Scriptures must be approached as
we explained in Biblical Literalism Part I and Part II (1).
To wit: In 2 Samuel 21:19 we read:
And there was a third battle in Gob against the Philistines, in which Adeodatus
the son of the Forrest an embroiderer of Bethlehem slew Goliath the
Gethite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver's beam.
If were fanatical literalists we would claim that we have been lied to
- either here or in story about David. However, applying what we have
explained (1) we
quickly discover that some copyist/translator got his terms and verb
tenses mixed up. It was the brother of Goliath who got killed by
To wit (our highlights):
Another battle also was fought against the Philistines, in which Adeodatus
the son of Saltus a Bethlehemite slew the brother of
Gethite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam. [1 Chronicles 20:5]
Do you realize how many wars have been fought by fanatical
leaders who decided not to check for ancient "typos"?
Literalism Part I
When God appoints someone
to fulfill a function on His behalf, the individual will do so come the
proverbial "hell or high water," without getting off without paying for
whatever transgressions he had committed?
Take King David, for example. He committed adultery with Bethsabee and murdered her husband Uriah [2 Kings 11] - two capital sins in less than probably three
months. Was David "fired" by God? Of course not; David had to
fulfill the plan of God but his family life was a painful cross
starting with the death of the offspring resulting from the adultery.
How about Samson? He was created to defeat the Philistines except he
had a weakness for Philistine women. No, not only the well known
Dalilah.... there were a couple of others too. Fast forward.... indeed
he finished off the Philistines as enemies of Israel by literally
crushing them, but his life was far from a bed of roses - eyes gouged
out, a slave to the Philistines and finally crushing himself to death
with the Philistines. [Judges
13 - 16]
Moral of the story: If God is playing a Tango, do not dance to a Samba.

you will like it better than the Samba; it always is better living in

It has been recently reported (1)
Thailand's sex trade, which pumps millions of
dollars into the Thai economy, has taken a big hit since the protests
began this spring. Thailand was once paradise for these men—among them
fetishists and pedophiles—but the spell has since been broken. No one
really wants their exotic intercourse interrupted by machine-gun fire
or beer runs inconvenienced by police checkpoints, although some are,
of course, willing to live with it if that's what it takes. Frustrated
sex tourists are now being forced to cancel their vacations or wait it
out in their cheap rented rooms until the party starts up again.
So now that it's not, where else is there to
go? A man with the username UKmatt on the popular expat (and sexpat)
forum thaivisa.com suggests the Phillipines as a viable alternative to
Thailand. There, he says, there are "beautiful Hispanic-looking women
with big boobs," but goes on to cite a high crime-rate and bad food as
reasons for not going. As for other countries: Sex tourism is not
permitted in Laos or Malaysia, and neither Cambodia nor Vietnam has, to
my knowledge, ever been referred to as the "Land of Smiles," as the
popular Thailand slogan goes.
you know that... there is more to the involvement of
Archbishop Hilarion Capucci (and the Vatican) with the Freedom Flotilla
to Gaza than meets the untrained eye?

Just War Principles: A Condemnation of War in Iraq, a collection
of essays edited by John Sharpe.
"So?" the reader may ask. The answer may be found through the question:
Who is Mr. John Sharpe?
In addition to what we indicated in our document True Tradition is Not Fascism (1), according to
John Forrest Sharpe, a graduate of the
U.S. Naval Academy and a former submarine officer and media spokesman
for the Atlantic Fleet, is the author and publisher of numerous
articles and books on the economic theory of distributism. He is
chairman of the publishing house IHS Press in Virginia; the
vice-chairman is Derek Holland. IHS Press and the Legion of St. Louis
(LSL), another publishing entity run by Sharpe that sells books such as
Henry Ford's The International Jew and Michael A. Hoffman II's Strange
Gods of Judaism, are on the list of hate groups for the Southern
Poverty Law Center.
On March 7, 2007, John Sharpe was temporarily relieved of duty pending
a Navy inquiry into allegations that he was involved in supremacist
In 2008, the Catholic University of America canceled a lecture series
in which Sharpe was to speak after the Southern Poverty Law Center
claimed Sharpe is anti-Semitic, though no review of his written opinion
Sharpe later filed suit against Landmark Communications, claiming
defamation in a news story. The suit sought $5 million in compensatory
damages and $350,000 in punitive damages. In April 2009, Norfolk
Circuit Court judge Norman A. Thomas issued his opinion. In it, Thomas
grants a summary judgment to the defendants on the major issues of the
case, concluding that Sharpe’s writings "do espouse anti-Semitic and
racist views... No reasonable person can read Sharpe’s individual
writings and conclude that he espouses anything other than a deep,
abiding and pervasive suspicion of and hostility toward Jews, whether
considered as a collective people, religion, nation or ethnic group."
Archbishop Hilarion has (a) a record of running weapons to violent
Palestinian extremists, and (b) an apparent link to US/European
The logical question should then be - What
makes this man of such value to the Vatican that they interceded to get
him out of jail, and that they still provide a residence for him?

variety of documents.

Hilarion Capucci, a
passenger of the flagship of the Freedom Flotilla.....
Archbishop Hilarion Capucci has a rather interesting
"One of the flotilla passengers is
the former Melkite Greek archbishop
of Jerusalem, Father Hilarion Capucci, who was previously arrested for
using his church car service to smuggle explosives, firearms and
katyusha rockets into Israel for the PLO. Capucci was freed after an
appeal from the Vatican." (1)
"In 1974 he was convicted by an
Israeli court of using his diplomatic status to smuggle arms to the
Palestine Liberation Army and sentenced to 12 years in prison. Capucci
was among the prisoners whose release was demanded by the Palestinian
hijackers of Air France Flight 139 in 1976. He was released a year
later due to intervention by the Vatican. The governments of Iraq,
Libya, Sudan and Syria have honored Capucci with postage stamps." (2)
It would seem that the 88 year old Hilarion has a rather peculiar
notion of 'humanitarian aid'; using it as a cover story to
intentionally cause an international incident (or worse....).
This obviously was not some innocent pious cleric bringing food and
water to the poor.
More to the point - this serves to underscore the fact that the
Vatican (along with secular cooperators) are most definitely trying to
'light the fuse' from which ever end works best.

This is another example of how the government of Israel mishandled the
event. If only 50% of those claims about Archbishop Hilarion are true,
all their overworked spokespersons needed to do was to highlight him
and his black-and-white record to prove their point that such flotilla
had ulterior motives.
Instead, they did everything possible to highlight themselves as a key

Did you know that.... just as the Taliban was the
creation of the US to fight off the Soviets, Hamas was the creation of
the State of Israel? (1)
Israel's experience echoes
that of the U.S., which, during the Cold War, looked to Islamists as a
useful ally against communism. Anti-Soviet forces backed by America
after Moscow's 1979 invasion of Afghanistan later mutated into al Qaeda.
Surveying the wreckage of a neighbor's bungalow hit by a Palestinian
rocket, retired Israeli official Avner Cohen traces the missile's
trajectory back to an "enormous, stupid mistake" made 30 years ago.
"Hamas, to my great regret, is Israel's creation," says Mr.
Cohen, a Tunisian-born Jew who worked in Gaza for more than two
decades. Responsible for religious affairs in the region until 1994,
Mr. Cohen watched the Islamist movement take shape, muscle aside
secular Palestinian rivals and then morph into what is today Hamas, a
militant group that is sworn to Israel's destruction.
Instead of trying to curb Gaza's Islamists from the outset,
says Mr. Cohen, Israel for years tolerated and, in some cases,
encouraged them as a counterweight to the secular nationalists of the
Palestine Liberation Organization and its dominant faction, Yasser
Arafat's Fatah. Israel cooperated with a crippled, half-blind cleric
named Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, even as he was laying the foundations for
what would become Hamas.

additional archeological information continues to surface (1)

the Creation Time Line (2)

...we believe we have found the remains
of an ancient city on the sea floor in the Western Caribbean. It is
important to note that we have yet to be to the site, but what we
believe we have found is the remains of an ancient city that was
formerly above sea level, and perhaps as much as 4500-8000 years old.
This has nothing to do with another site, found almost 10 years ago by
a Canadian/Russian team working to map the sea floor near the Yucatan
Peninsula. Their site is nearly 2 miles below the sea floor. The site
we are working with is much shallower - in between 40 and 70 feet of

architecture, so we are leaning towards that as a hypothesis as it is
largely unknown where the Maya civilization came from. It is our hope
that we might be able to fill in this missing part of the historical
record with our research.
Lastly, there is believed to have been a massive meteor in the Atlantic
about 11,000 years ago. The resulting tsunami could have contributed to
the demise of the city.

As the latest (last?) Bilderberg meeting is underway.....
we thought it appropriate to republish a very pertinent post originally
on April 2nd, 2009:
you know that.... world leaders agreed to a
huge raft of spending Thursday to combat the economic crisis, pledging
to lay out five trillion dollars by the end of 2010 as British Prime
Minister Gordon Brown hailed a "new world order"? (1)
measures, agreed at a one-day summit in London, would see tax havens
named and shamed, new rules on corporate pay, major reforms to the
International Monetary Fund and World Bank, a new push to pass free
trade rules and the sale of huge gold reserves to help poor countries.
"A new world order is emerging, and with
it we are entering into a new era of international cooperation," Brown
said after hosting a summit which brought together US President Barack
Obama and leaders of the established and emerging powers from around
"The issues that people thought divided
us did not divide us at all. There was substantial agreement to do
whatever is necessary to return to growth," Brown told a press
conference, while warning there are "no quick fixes," and the G20 would
have to meet again this year.
Before the summit, the United States and
Britain had pushed for bigger stimulus spending while France and
Germany had called for the focus to be put on greater regulation of the
have followed the development of this staged
event more than we would normally do. It is indeed fascinating
how it was staged to fit with other staged events which have been
taking place at full speed worldwide since President George W. Bush
took office - just eleven days before the document outlining Phase III (2)
of what was going to be implemented once
the nation was made ready after 9-11.
Now, we see that after the "9-11 of
the financial world" took place it was rather simple to get the
leaders of twenty key world nations - some of which, just hours before,
"staged" a warning of walking out if
Europe "did not get its way". Only fools can believe that this group
would agree on this massive change in less than eight hours when a
smaller group - which includes some of the same players - the UN
Security Council - cannot even agree on what to do about North Korea,
Iran, Israel, Zimbabwe, etc. in month after month of endless haggling.
There must have been an equivalent to the Phase III document to be used
as the road map for the "spontaneous" and "selfless" outcome of the
G-20 Summit. Even the anti-globalism demonstrations were more
subdued than they have ever been. Surprised? Think about it!
As we have repeatedly stated in the past: the world stock markets were
manipulated to squeeze out the last cent out of the average investor,
and this swindle was completed as the markets finally crashed on a
After stealing the world population blind through the markets, the
remaining step was for "them" to give
" ...a new push to pass free trade rules and the
sale of huge gold reserves to help poor countries."
Of course - who in his right mind is going to go against
"selling gold to help the poor"? Think about it!

massive military strike to
justify the establishment of the already prepared political aspect of
the New World Order (3)...

the world reaction to the State of Israel's recent flouting of
International Law, while key players of the Western world carefully
measure their words so that they do not (God forbid!) offend Israel,

Jerusalem Post: Papal candidate Schonborn
Key Quotes [from original article already removed by
the Jerusalem Post]
"A cardinal considered a candidate
succeed Pope John Paul II delivered a strong message in favor of Jewish
settlement in the Holy Land on Wednesday night, rejecting the claim
that European Christians' support for the State of Israel is based on
Holocaust guilt and saying that all Christians should affirm Zionism as
a biblical imperative for the Jewish people.
Archbishop of Vienna Cardinal
Christoph Schoenborn, part of a visiting Austrian delegation,
made the remarks in an address at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on
the topic of "God's chosen land."
After asking, "What does Eretz Yisrael [the Land of Israel] mean to
us," Schoenborn answered by stressing the doctrinal importance to
Christians of not only recognizing Jews' connection to the land, but
also ensuring that Christian identification with the Jewish Bible not
lead to a "usurpation" of Jewish uniqueness.
M+G+R Foundation Comments
whole affair would be laughable if it would not have such grave
Christoph Schoenborn -
an Opus Dei man - is the one who on 13/20 August 1997, page 3, of L'Osservatore
came to the defense of the Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei
after a Parliamentary Commission in Belgium had listed said Prelature
as a sect. This "dissertation" was promptly
a site sponsored by the
Legionaries of Christ
and Regnum Christi -
What makes Schoenborn’s comments
especially revolting is that Opus Dei was a sustaining pillar in the
Spanish Dictatorship of Generalíssimo Franco,
a government which sent troops to
assist Nazi Germany in their fight against communism...
while at the same time some Opus Dei university branches in certain
occasions committed notable injustices, at times in iniquitous
alliances with Marxist professors, against Catholic professors. [DD]
Of course, Opus Dei’s anti-Semitism is denied and/or explained away,
depending upon who the listener is.

vessels traveling to Gaza with humanitarian report that they have been
attacked by Israeli forces, with three of their human rights volunteers

flotilla being surrounded earlier today by three Israeli warships in international waters, roughly 70 miles away from the
Israeli coast. The Flotilla moved further west, deeper
into international waters to avoid any conflict with Israeli navy
vessels, but had been concerned all night that Israeli forces would
send small inflatable military boats towards the flotilla and attempt
to attack and board the humanitarian vessels.

Mavi Marmara, a Turkish ship with hundreds of aid workers and activists
aboard, reporting that they have been attacked. At least three
passengers have been killed and dozens more wounded. Israeli commandos

boats in the aid flotilla, one currently traveling with the

and registered in the United States. The ships are U.S. territory under
maritime law, and the U.S. government is required to intervene if this
“U.S. property” is attacked or illegally confiscated by Israeli
authorities — a tactic Israel has threatened and deployed in the past. Israel

undesirable. In December 2008, it rammed the Dignity, carrying medical
and humanitarian aid, doctors, human rights workers and a former U.S.

weeks-long assault that ended in January 2009, killing more than 1,400

poverty, leaving four out of five Gazans — half of whom are children —
dependent on humanitarian aid.

of relief and developmental aid to Gaza, along with roughly 700
participants from more than 30 countries, among them volunteers from
South Africa, Algeria, Turkey, Macedonia, Pakistan, Yemin, Kosovo, the
UK and US and Kuwait – and an exiled
former Archbishop of Jerusalem who currently lives in the Vatican. The
cargo includes prefabricated homes and playgrounds, cement and other
home-building supplies, medical devices and medications, textiles and
food, in defiance of Israel’s siege on Gaza, which restricts the entry
of all materials, including food and medicine. The flotilla’s supplies
were gathered by a coalition of international civil society and human
rights organizations to be sent directly to the people of Gaza by sea,
using only international waters and the coastal waters immediately off
of Gaza for passage. The flotilla is expected to arrive in Gaza as
early as today.
