(1) When a communication appears on this Forum, it does not automatically imply that The M+G+R Foundation agrees with all of its contents and/or conclusions.

(2) 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.

(3) 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.

BOOTHVILLE, La. - There is still a hole in the Earth, crude oil is still spewing from it and there is still, excruciatingly, no end in sight.

From (Mr.) IW @ Somewhere in the World


This Divine Encouragement posting (1) is so appropriate to my current circumstance that it seems directed specifically to me.

For the past several weeks I have been "free-falling", so to speak. Having gone through financial devastation in the past, I have been feeling resentful of facing a similar situation now. This was exacerbated by a less-than-stellar review of my job performance by my subordinates, to the point that those closest to me have been surprised at what they know as uncharacteristic behavior on my part (I had expressed my rage at the review to two of my loved ones, and was basically using all my willpower not to show it or take it against my subordinates).

I had likened my state to that of a top that had lost its center of gravity and was spinning out of control.

I have come to realize, through attempting to explain how I felt to a loved one, that I was throwing a tantrum at God, in the manner of a spoiled child who is certain of his parents' love for him, but refuses to take his medicine because it is bitter.
 
I cannot realistically say that everything will be smooth sailing for me now acceptance-wise, but I pray to leave these dark emotions behind and learn to conquer myself.

In this rambling sort of way, I want to thank you for the posting. I really needed it.
 
You all remain in my prayers.

(Mr.) IW


A. Rejoice! Where you see failure and misery, God sees progress.

If an untrained (lacking a better word) eye would review your letters from some time back until to now, it would appear that you continue to  "free fall" as you put it, but that is just an appearance, an illusion.  As we make progress in our journey Home, we get closer to God. The closer we get to God, the more Light there is. The  more Light there is, the better we see ourselves, and.... the  better we see ourselves the more misery we see.

What we cannot notice is that we are less miserable today than we were six months ago.

For example - If by a miracle you could:

(a) See yourself six months ago with the level of Light shining upon you today, you would faint in horror;

 and if you could

(b) See yourself today with the Light had shining upon you six months ago, you would think of yourself  "a saint" since you have purified yourself greatly in the last six months, and, with the dimmer Light of six month ago, you would see no blemish.

Therefore, if ever you see yourself as "having made it", you are in trouble because you are slipping back into dimmer areas - away from God.  Conversely, if every day you see more misery that needs to be eliminated, rejoice - get to work on it - because you are closer to Home.

We must add, however, that some bad/negative habits/tendencies take some time to get rid of. As long as one keeps on trying in earnest those
bad/negative habits/tendencies will eventually disappear.

However, know that as one approaches the freedom from said
bad/negative habits/tendencies, satan will "put on one major last fight" before he loses the grip he has on that particular soul.  This is why, in some cases, one will see a great flare up in the bad/negative habits/tendencies before they are totally conquered.

Our Lord Jesus Christ continues to comfort and encourages us thus...

What Joy follows self-conquest! You cannot conquer and control others until you have completely conquered yourself.

Can you see yourself absolutely unmoved?

Think of Me before the mocking soldiers, being struck, spat upon, and answering never a word - never a word. Try to see that as Divine Power. Remember by that Power of perfect silence, perfect self-control, you can alone prove your right to govern.

Never judge. The heart of man is so delicate, so complex, only its Maker can know it. Each heart is so different, actuated by different motives, controlled by different circumstances, influenced by different sufferings.

How can one judge of another? Leave to Me the unraveling of the puzzles of life. Leave to Me the teaching of understanding.

Bring each heart to Me, its Maker, and leave it with Me. Sure in the certainty that all that is wrong I can set right.


Do you still....
not understand the Secret Concept of the Holy Trinity?


This revelation may help you do so. The revelation of the Secret Concept of the Most Holy Trinity will also help you understand why it is theologically correct call the Virgin Mary "Mother of God".



Published on May 29th, 2010


Have you ever noticed...
what is the key message Jesus delivered when He cursed a fig tree for not having figs?

At first, such action may appear to be shocking since it seems that Jesus is cursing a tree which did not have figs because it was not time yet. Are we witnessing a Divine tantrum? After all, we read:

13 And when he had seen afar off a fig tree having leaves, he came if perhaps he might find any thing on it. And when he was come to it, he found nothing but leaves. For it was not the time for figs. 14 And answering he said to it: May no man hereafter eat fruit of thee any more for ever. [Mark 11]

Hardly so. The reason becomes apparent after they return from Jerusalem. To wit.
[our highlighting]

20 And when they passed by in the morning they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.

21 And Peter remembering, said to him: Rabbi, behold the fig tree, which thou didst curse, is withered away. 22 And Jesus answering, saith to them: Have the faith of God. 23 Amen I say to you, that whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou removed and be cast into the sea, and shall not stagger in his heart, but believe, that whatsoever he saith shall be done; it shall be done unto him. 24 Therefore I say unto you, all things, whatsoever you ask when ye pray, believe that you shall receive; and they shall come unto you. [Mark 11]

Jesus was teaching them a lesson about faith and not about placing a curse on anything. A hard to forget show-and-tell example with the fig tree being the only victim.


Regarding self flagellation.....
and other acts of self-inflicted physical abuse, such as the cilice, done in the name of piety. Jesus was quite clear about it: that is not the way God Wills that we offer sacrifice. Why are we absolutely certain of this - regardless of the many well known faces amongst the saints (and would-be saints) who have practiced this? Well - we "just know it" - but since I am not a "known face" we will point to the best known face yet....

At Gethsemani  ...he began to grow sorrowful and to be sad. 38 Then he saith to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death: stay you here, and watch with me. 39 And going a little further, he fell upon his face, praying, and saying: My Father, if it be possible, let this chalice pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. [Matthew 26]

Jesus prayed thus three times. What was at stake was the Salvation of mankind, yet he would rather not subject Himself to physical pain unless it was the Will of the Father.

Using American vernacular we say: If that attitude was good enough for Jesus, it should certainly be good for any of His followers – unless, of course, someone, consciously or not, is trying to upstage Jesus.

Think about it.

However, day in and day out, little sacrifices are in line with God’s will – such as denying ourselves little pleasures, inconveniencing ourselves for the benefit of other(s), reasonable fasting (no hunger strikes, please), long prayerful walks during Pilgrimages, eating nourishing food which we find distasteful or not on our list of favorites, etc.

To make sure that we get our point across, we will use yet another well "known face".... the Virgin Mary's.

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. (1)

Do not be impressed by those who sleep on boards instead of a mattress. After a few fitful nights on boards, the body will get used to it and you will sleep as well as you always did. Proof: Have you ever gone to a hotel where the mattress was much better than the one you have at home, and you could not sleep?

The only Ones we should look upon as roles models are: Jesus and Mary. Even if their perfection is unattainable for a mere human, such perfection should be our only "standard".

Did you know why....
Abraham was so persistent with God when he was on His way to Sodom to possibly destroy it since their sin had become exceedingly grievous? To wit:

Abraham as yet stood before the Lord. 23 And drawing nigh he said: Wilt thou destroy the just with the wicked? 24 If there be fifty just men in the city, shall they perish withal? and wilt thou not spare that place for the sake of the fifty just, if they be therein? .... 30 Lord, saith he, be not angry, I beseech thee, if I speak: What if thirty shall be found there? He answered: I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

31 Seeing, saith he, I have once begun, I will speak to my Lord. What if twenty be found there? He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty. 32 I beseech thee, saith he, be not angry, Lord, if I speak yet once more: What if ten should be found there? And he said: I will not destroy it for the sake of ten. [Genesis 18]

Obviously, it was not as the result of Abraham's desire to save the wicked; it seems that he wanted to make sure that God did not destroy Lot, Abraham's nephew, and his family who resided in Sodom.

As it is always with God, He found a way to destroy Sodom and Gomorrha and uphold His promise to Abraham.....

And when it was morning, the angels pressed him (Lot), saying: Arise, take thy wife, and the two daughters which thou hast: lest thou also perish in the wickedness of the city. 16 And as he lingered, they took his hand, and the hand of his wife, and of his two daughters, because the Lord spared him. 17 And they brought him forth, and set him without the city: and there they spoke to him, saying: Save thy life: look not back, neither stay thou in all the country about: but save thyself in the mountain, lest thou be also consumed. [Genesis 19]

Moral of the story: It is always a good idea to be on God's Good Graces when, symbolically, "brimstone and fire may start to fall from Heaven" at any time.
Remember that even the most simple and easiest to follow instructions: 17 ...and there they spoke to him, saying: Save thy life: look not back, ...
if not followed will have catastrophic results:  ... 26 And his (Lot's) wife looking behind her, was turned into a statue of salt.


Do you know that.... the "smoking gun" held by the West, which points to North Korea's authorship of the torpedoing of a South Korea naval vessel, is composed of the "Made in North Korea" torpedo remnants?

We certainly do not doubt (although we have more than enough reason to, based on the track record of the authorities) the findings of the commission which established that a torpedo was the reason for the explosion.

Likewise, we do not doubt the commission's finding that the torpedo was "Made in North Korea".

The problem with the logic used to push the Korean peninsula to the nuclear brink is that the real "smoking gun" would be the North Korean submarine. What if someone else - like those who need to push the world over the brink to finally, and forcibly, establish their New World Order - fired a torpedo (somehow obtained through generous bribery of a NK official or their suppliers) from a non North Korea submarine?

Oh, how easy is to deceive the gullible public with enough media "experts" reporting (1) on the always "Developing news story".

Do you....
share with those in your lists, as well as with the Forums many of you visit, what you have learned, or had confirmed, through our pages for the last twelve years?

Let us not forget - as the result of being over prudent - Our Lord's Words:

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. [Luke 12:48]

Only God knows how many are depending upon you to show them the Light.


Did you know what....
was the response from the RC Church to the creation of a synthetic cell?

One Official Opinion

"If it is used toward the good, to treat pathologies, we can only be positive" in our assessment, Monsignor Rino Fisichella, the Vatican's top bioethics official, told state-run TV. "If it turns out not to be ... useful to respect the dignity of the person, then our judgment would change."

Another Official Opinion

A top Italian cardinal, Angelo Bagnasco, said the invention is "further sign of intelligence, God's gift to understand creation and be able to better govern it," according to Apcom and ANSA news agencies.

"On the other hand, intelligence can never be without responsibility," said Bagnasco, the head of the Italian bishops' conference. "Any form of intelligence and any scientific acquisition ... must always be measured against the ethical dimension, which has at its heart the true dignity of every person."

Yet another Official Opinion

 "Pretending to be God and parroting his power of creation is an enormous risk that can plunge men into a barbarity," Mogavero told newspaper La Stampa in an interview. Scientists "should never forget that there is only one creator: God."

"In the wrong hands, today's development can lead tomorrow to a devastating leap in the dark," said Mogavero, who heads the conference's legal affairs department.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:  They seem to have covered all bases while skirting reality.

Since when has man used major scientific developments to Glorify God? In every case, such developments have been used instead to "play God" with the logical consequence of death and destruction.

That is why our opinion was - as issued upon learning of the "breakthrough":

Man defiance of God continues unabated. The fools cannot even see the fact that "brilliant man" cannot control the ash from a volcano - which shutdown European airspace for almost a week - nor the damage from man's seemingly limitless stupidity in the Gulf of Mexico.

Man continues to up the ante until he is finally crushed by the same evil who tricked Adam and Eve into believing that they could be like God.

May God have Mercy on His Elect!

Brethren, we regret that it is necessary that we be as brutally direct and clear as we are now. However, our function is quite different from that of Mary Poppins or The Sound of Music.

Did you know that......
in a strongly worded brief for the United States Supreme Court, the Obama administration has sided with the Vatican in an Oregon lawsuit that names the Holy See as a defendant for its role in the sexual abuse crisis? (1)

Filed on Friday, the brief stops short of recommending that the Supreme Court directly take up the case of Doe v. Holy See, originally filed in federal district court in Oregon in 2002. Instead, it suggests that the Supreme Court set aside the 2009 ruling of an appeals court that allowed the case to go forward, sending it back for further consideration.

and that.....

....Federal judge Jack B. Weinstein has come to be identified by his efforts to combat what he calls “the unnecessary cruelty of the law.” His most recent crusade is particularly striking because of the beneficiary: a man who has amassed a vast collection of child pornography. (2)

Judge Weinstein, who sits in the United States District Court in Brooklyn, has twice thrown out convictions that would have ensured that the man spend at least five years behind bars.  ....and he recently declared that the man, who is awaiting a new trial, did not need an electronic ankle bracelet because he posed “no risk to society.”

....across the country, an increasing number of federal judges have come to their defense, criticizing changes to sentencing laws that have effectively quadrupled their average prison term over the last decade.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:  What can we say other than "The necessary renewal of the world is right on schedule (and closer than most would ever want to imagine) since mankind is cooperating to the fullest for it to be triggered (3)."

Did you know that.... new figures released on May 17 show the birth rate in Germany, Europe's biggest economy, has plummeted to a historic low, dropping to a level not seen since 1946? (1)

As demographers warn of the consequences of not making enough babies to replace and support an ageing population, the latest figures have triggered a bout of national soul-searching and cast a harsh light on Chancellor Angela Merkel's family policies.

According to a preliminary analysis by the Federal Statistics Office, 651,000 children were born in Germany in 2009 - 30,000 fewer than in 2008, a dip of 3.6%. In 1990, German mothers were having on average 1.5 children each; today that average is down to 1.38 children per mother. With a shortfall of 190,000 between the number of people who died and the number of children who were born, Germany's birth rate is well below the level required to keep the population stable.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:  Why the surprise? When abortion is just a "routine procedure"; the "Morning After" pill is taken as just another health supplement and sexual intercourse has become just a sport.... a plummeting population is the logical result.

Instead of complaining about the rapid increase in the population among Muslims, perhaps we should look into as to why such increase is taking place. Of course, the immediate answer one hears is: "They are planning to take over the world..." followed by  a "Let's bomb them out of existence!"

and that.....

....one of Spain's financial entities  (equivalent to the US' Savings and  Loans Assoc..) - CajaSur - has been taken over by the Central Bank of Spain due to its insolvency? (1)
(our underscoring)

The central bank's decision to take over CajaSur, which posted a 596 million-euro ($794 million) loss last year, follows the seizure of Caja Castilla-La Mancha in March, 2009. CajaSur accounts for 0.6 percent of the assets of the Spanish banking industry, the Bank of Spain said.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:  You may ask: "So what? What is it to us?" That would be a good and valid question which we will gladly answer....
(our underscoring)

CajaSur is controlled and managed by the Roman Catholic Church and accounts for 0.6% of the total assets in the Spain's banking system. (2) How easily are the teachings from the Holy Scriptures trampled over by the "Evangelizers"....

1 And in those days, the number of the disciples increasing, there arose a murmuring of the Greeks against the Hebrews, for that their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. 2 Then the twelve calling together the multitude of the disciples, said: It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. 3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. 4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. [Acts 6]

But what do we know.... after all, the head of CajaSur is a priest and a theologian.... a true-to-form "Evangelizer".....

Do you know what.... to pray for to cooperate with Him - as He intended -  in the Redemption of mankind?

Even if you think you do - which you may - we encourage you to review these suggestions.

and....

Do you ever wonder....
who really wrote what Gospel? Take a look - it is most interesting and will assist you in establishing a closer rapport with the Word of God.


From (Mr.) IW @ US

In previous notes, I mentioned that I served mass with the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1). While I am not the only one who can say this, my memory of the experience was rather interesting.

Many have characterized Sheen as a 'frustrated actor'. I would contend from my personal experience that he was anything but 'frustrated', much less lacked real acting experience. In fact, I assert that he was a master of the craft. The key to understanding this lies in understanding Method Acting (2) - where one does not merely read lines and feign emotions; you become the character.

In his many videos, Sheen is perceived as a jovial, brilliantly glib, virtual polymath. A skillful presenter of complex philosophic, theological and metaphysical constructs such that the common man could understand. Within this "play" this actor inserted plenty of masterful rhetorical justification for the 'Red Scare' mentality as being coherent with the essence of Judeo-Christian ethics and  morality. With some skillfully placed Marian allusions to make the complete package (his 'character') appear solidly Catholic.

Why would the executives of the then fledgling TV networks give this man a prime time TV slot (and an Emmy award) for many years? A Catholic in 'Protestant America, much less a Bishop?

In retrospect, two words: An Agenda

Prior to serving my first mass with Sheen, I was introduced to him by a priest. Sheen was a virtual block of ice. He spoke not one word to me. He shook my hand as if being forced to. While I attempted very brief and polite small talk, as any pre-teen child of the sixties would do to be respectful of an elder, he completely ignored me. He would not respond to even an important question regarding the rituals of the mass we were about to offer.

It was more than just ignoring me: he appeared suspicious of me. I realized this, then  was completely confused. Now over 40 years later, one overall impression of him comes through: "Darkness". This was the overwhelming feeling I received from the man - emotionally and spiritually. As if he was of (and/or was enveloped in) "Darkness". It was a palpable presence. This feeling continued through the mass - even though the altar was brightly lit. I would have felt more comfortable standing next to Dracula.

Bear in mind that I had seen him on TV prior to meeting him, and had the common most positive perception of his 'character'. I had no negative preconceived notions. What I met and  interacted with was not the same man. It was 'dark', seething resentment and hate which felt aimed at me (3). As if I was of something completely alien, at enmity with him.

Yet I was a completely innocent 9 year old boy - with a very childlike belief in God. How could I possibly be so threatening to this famous Bishop?

While I have met  dealt with many 'Method Actors" in the theater, rarely have I met such virtual "Jekyll and Hyde"(4) situations... except among certain members of the Catholic clergy. Perhaps it is time to revisit Robert Louis Stevenson's novel.....

A. 
Thank you for sharing what must have been a painful/bewildering experience with us.

Knowing you, we have no doubt that the spiritual experience was indeed as you have related. Without a doubt, the experience had an even greater impact in you since he was, as you said, so positively perceived by Catholics as well as others. Of course, some "arm chair psychologist" may say that your feelings were the result of a normal let down by meeting, behind the scenes, a quasi mythical figure.... to which we would respond: On the contrary, a child would be so awestruck to work with (in a Mass) with such an important member of the Hierarchy that most, if not all, character flaws would be overlooked.

We just noticed when God chose to "air" this letter considering it reached exactly one month ago: Pentecost Sunday.

May it serve to underscore what we do not tire of repeating: Appearances (1) will deceive, but the Holy Spirit of God - in residence in our hearts - cannot be fooled, even by a "face" like Fulton Sheen's.

From Mike Tario @ Ad Hoc Committee for the Prevention of Clergy Sex Abuse

Don't hesitate to call us, as we know that Pope JP2 and Benedict were/are well aware of the massive abuse problems here in the USA.
 
In Jesus through Mary,

Mike Tario

Subject: JP2's knowledge of clerical abuse

Dear Miguel,

     Obviously God did not reveal everything to you . JP2 had knowledge of the abuse under his pontificate . How about Archbishop Julius Paetz ? Everyone in Poland knew about him ! Why do you think JP2 kept a "whip" in his closet for personal mortification ? Please call Fr. Tom Doyle to educate yourself about this . Ignorance is NO excuse ... in early 2002, John Paul was already in physical decline and arguably unable to respond with the vigor the situation required..." But Maciel was credibly accused long before 2002. Fr. Tom Doyle's warning to the Vatican was sent long before 2002. John Paul II knew about the sex abuse and did nothing. So it would seem that even the excuses being offered for his failures are inaccurate.

Sorry to pop your bubble,

Paul A Picchietti

A.  Frankly we fail to see the purpose of your kind offer but we thank you for it.

We have not accepted any correspondence from Mr. Picchietti (1) for quite sometime for he seems to have some difficulties with the perception of our function. However, due to you inapplicable, but appreciated, concern, we will comment upon it.

First we wish to congratulate you for encouraging (2), back in March 2002, the members of your parish, Sts. Faith Hope and Charity Church, to hold back contributions until the church would adopt a policy of full disclosure and zero tolerance.  That was indeed a courageous act considering that you are (or were) in the banking business. It seems that your drive for purification assisted the Opus Dei influence in the parish, since we noticed that Sts. Faith Hope and Charity Church was one of the few churches in the US which celebrated Masses in 2007 for the feast of Josemaria Escrivá.

But back to Mr. Picchietti's allegations, allegations which without a doubt were triggered by our statements in this same forum on May 18th, and we quote:
They are willing to sacrifice the memory of John Paul II if that is what it takes to continue with their plans and The Memory of John Paul II on the line. [On the Sunday edition of the most respected center-right daily of Spain there was a two full page article going into greater detail than the NCR article linked here. In said article there was no hedging about it - John Paul II is being positioned as the escapegoat.]

We can summarize what we meant in an easier to comprehend statement: They are willing to sacrifice the good name of John Paul II....

The key is "the good name" or the very "positive memory" the world has of John Paul II – a "good name" and "positive memory" which Benedict and his people have been exploiting to the maximum extent possible... up to now.

A "good name" or "positive memory" does not necessarily reflect reality. At one time Hitler, the Japanese Emperor, Pope Alexander VI, and Fidel Castro - just to mention a few - had a "good name." They would have left a "positive memory" if they had died before their deeds blew up in the face of the world.

In one of our documents (3) we stated:
The enslavement of H.H. John Paul II by the forces of evil prowling through The Vatican became the only viable avenue left to them to achieve this end, since the enemies of God could not physically eliminate him as they had originally planned to do in 1994-1995.
To be more specific - John Paul II's papacy ended around 1994-1995. He was the last successor of Peter, in the full sense of that title.

Our files abound with communications from us dated as far back as 1997, decrying the Vatican's behavior regarding sexual abuse within the RC Church. As a matter of fact, we have found no less than four letters that we sent to Cardinal Ratzinger requesting sweeping action on this matter. These letters were accompanied by appropriate supporting documentation. All of this took place just before the sexual abuse scandal broke out in full force in the US.

In an effort to give the Vatican "an incentive", we acquired 20-plus copies of "The Great Unfrocked - Two Thousand Years of Church Scandal" by Matthew Parris. We made this book available, free of charge, to those who needed to know that the sexual abuse cancer was not just another "evil" that might be (incorrectly) blamed on the Second Vatican Council. (4)

It seems that Mr. Picchietti also missed the fact that on March 19, 2002 - while John Paul II was still the acting Pope - miguel de Portugal denounced (5), in no uncertain terms, the scandalous deeds of Cardinal Law, just as we had already denounced Cardinal Egan (6) for his cover-up activities. On March 19, 2002, we told the world that “Rome has lost the faith and will soon become the seat of Antichrist� (7) – and this has already happened (8).

Therefore, sir, in all humility we must say that we are better informed about this matter than you seem to think. Nonetheless, we thank you for contacting us so that we could make crystal clear - even to the most confused souls - that when we refer to the "good name" or "positive memory" of John Paul II, we are referring to the perceptions of others, and not necessarily referring to our own view of his deeds.

Did you know that.... according to NOAA the combined global land and ocean surface temperature was the warmest on record for both April and for the period from January-April? (1)

Additionally, last month’s average ocean surface temperature was the warmest on record for any April, and the global land surface temperature was the third warmest on record.

The monthly analysis from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, which is based on records going back to 1880, is part of the suite of climate services that NOAA provides government, business and community leaders so they can make informed decisions.

It appears that.... Benedict XVI has decided to acknowledge and act upon what the New Testament warned us about almost 2000 years ago.

As he approached Lisbon to start his four day visit in Portugal he stated the following (1) to the press corps accompanying him:
[our highlights]

In his most thorough admission of the church's guilt in the clerical sex abuse scandal, Pope Benedict XVI said Tuesday the greatest persecution of the institution "is born from the sins within the church," and not from a campaign by outsiders.

The pontiff said the Catholic church has always been tormented by problems of its own making - a tendency that is being witnessed today "in a truly terrifying way."

"The church needs to profoundly relearn penitence, accept purification, learn forgiveness but also justice," he said.

In today's Mass readings we "hear" Paul speak thus:
[our highlights]

28 Take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 29 I know that, after my departure, ravening wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 And of your own selves shall arise men speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

31 Therefore watch, keeping in memory, that for three years I ceased not, with tears to admonish every one of you night and day. [Acts 20]

The question is - Will he follow through? Of course, at this point, it is a completely moot point, although it would bring some consolation to those souls devastated by the inaction of the RC Church Administration.

Many fell for Marcial Maciel Degollado of Legionnaires of Christ "fame" and many still refuse (2) to believe the truth.

As a matter of interest: Maciel's second last name (his mother's maiden name) is "Degollado" which translates into English as "Beheaded".

If you were wondering about.... the How? and Why? of the apparently unpredictable gyrations of the world economy and the latest assault on the Euro, then wonder no more. If you just review the key areas of Project Hammer  (1), exposé all will start to fall in place.

We have never heard of said project until yesterday, however, not surprisingly, it fits perfectly well with all else that we have been announcing for seventeen years (2) and which is being fulfilled right now.

From (Mr.) SJ @ US


Sincere thanks for referring me to your About Us page.
 
My wife and I are Catholic.  We also listen to Jack Van Impe and all in all, are trying our best to have eyes that see, and ears that listen.  We want to prepare our family for what we see coming, our Lord's return.  We want to be faithful to the word AND the church.

We are confused by how the Catholic church interprets the "rapture".  Jack Van Impe would imply that believers would be raptured before the tribulation, and we are told this is not Catholic teaching, and that Christians will suffer the tribulation and be raptured.
 
Is the M+G+R Foundation a Catholic organization?  It certainly feels like it.

My Father in Law is a Permanent Deacon in the Catholic Church and even appeared on EWTN's Journey Home program as a Catholic Convert.  We seek only the truth and feel as though you have a heavy heart with respect to discussion of the Catholic Church vs the Catholic Administration.

Can you or someone advise.  I apologize for bothering you with this, and do appreciate greatly your spiritual guidance.

PLEASE help us interpret the claims by Catholic Planet regarding the teachings of Miguel de Portugal and the M+G+R Foundation.  We seek only the truth, and wish you only the best.


(Mr.) SJ

A.
We are the ones who sincerely thank you for this opportunity. Your letter illustrates what constitutes our "agony in the garden." We see fine sincere individuals seeking the truth while “the serpent” pours forth “water as it were a river; that he might cause her to be carried away by the river." [Rev 12:15].   (This water is of the same spiritual nature that John, Jesus and Paul encountered in Time during their ministries here on Earth.)

First, let us remind you that the Church IS NOT the Administration. The Church, as the New Testament clearly and repeatedly indicates, is composed of the "living stones" - the souls who are trying to live The Word - Jesus Christ. The Administrators are part of the Church as you and we are - and that is it. The reason the Church has not collapsed yet (0) is because of the many fine "living stones" amongst the laity. (A far, far greater proportion of the laity are “living stones” than are the clergy – including the Hierarchy.)

God even had the kindness to send a holy man - Don John Bosco (1) - who for forty years, under the full view of three Popes, clergy and hierarchy - showed that if they practiced what Jesus taught the Faith would flourish even in a rabid anticlerical Italy. Bosco’s example had little effect; the Administration continued their "business as usual". Don Bosco even had to "bribe" two key members of the Curia to have them approve the Salesians (which had the green light from Rattazzi, the most anti-clerical minister in Italy).

Summarizing, in general terms: we hold the Roman Catholic Church Administration to be the present-day equivalent of the Administration of the Temple of Jerusalem in the time of John the Baptizer and of Jesus.

Are we "a Catholic organization?" Were John the Baptizer – and Jesus Christ and His Apostles and followers – "a Jewish organization?" You can provide the answer to your own question.

Regarding the Rapture - unfortunately, living the Protestant version of the Rapture will be a horrendously painful error for many. In a way, it is similar to the belief in reincarnation (2). Those who believe in reincarnation harbor the security that "they will always have another chance (life) to get things right" - which they will not. The next to the final cut of The Elect (3)  - those who will greet Jesus on His return - will have lived Purgatory on Earth, i.e. The Tribulation - thus have been purified enough to face/greet Him. There no escaping from that, although it may be cushioned by assiduous prayer and sacrifices.

Regarding the Catholic Planet's "rating" of The M+G+R Foundation and miguel de Portugal... It is indeed amusing. Who empowered Catholic Planet (or the Roman Curia, for that matter) to evaluate what is obviously beyond their grasp?

Having been the target of several murder attempts, we can assure you that we are not very popular in certain circles.

What can you expect when:

(a) Our exposure of the real Opus Dei (4) is self standing.

(b) We dismantled (with the Catholic version of the New Testament in hand) the lie that Salvation may only be found in the Roman Catholic Church (5). This cannot be countered.

(c) We dismantled (with the Catholic version of the New Testament in hand) the lie that Christianity was founded upon the rock of Peter (6). At the same time, we recognize a legitimate and true Petrine Ministry.

(d) We exposed how the Church Administration planned to commandeer Heavenly Revelations of Apocalyptic events – events for which the Administrators had dates (7).

(e) We expose the MMP sham (8); etc, etc. (We could go on for quite a while with this list).

It is usually those at the very low levels who are foolish enough to pretend to be in a position to evaluate the truth we express, but that is generally the case with humans who are in the dark.

We pray that we have answered your questions and concerns in full through this letter and the links from it. May God continue to Bless you and guide you safely Home.

Remember - just like The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath. [Mark 2:27], the RC Church Administration was made for man, and not man for the
RC Church Administration. Man was made for God and there could be nothing further from God today than the RC Church Administration.

Did you know that..... when anyone in the Church Administration wishes to shut down a financially unprofitable or critical-of-the-Administration Marian apparition, they quote (1) from the RC Church Catechism:

God has said everything in his Word

65 "In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son." Christ, the Son of God made man, is the Father's one, perfect and unsurpassable Word. In him he has said everything; there will be no other word than this one.

There will be no further Revelation

66 "The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new and definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ." Yet even if Revelation is already complete, it has not been made completely explicit; it remains for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the centuries.
 
They seem to have forgotten to "air brush out" the following statements by Jesus:

12 I have yet many things to say to you: but you cannot bear them now. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will teach you all truth. For he shall not speak of himself; but what things whatsoever he shall hear, he shall speak; and the things that are to come, he shall shew you. [John 16]

    and


26 But the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you. [John 14]

Of course, no new revelation, nor any development of an already revealed truth, can in any way, directly or indirectly, contravene what was revealed by Jesus when He walked among men. This is what Ratzinger should have said in the Catechism.

Do you ever wonder who....
really is the controlling force within the RC Church Administration?

Review the following very few key examples and then you decide.

Consider that, for example.....

(a) As soon as there is an obvious supernatural manifestation the first "official thought" is that it is of demonic origin. [As if God did not have total control over what satan can and cannot do.]
(b) The Canonization process of St. Martin de Porres - "a living reflection of religious life, a model of piety, a perfect ideal of regular observance", a walking miracle immersed in true humility - followed this time table:  Death of his physical body: 1639; Beatified: 1837; Canonized: 1962
(c) The Canonization process of Padre Pio - another proven example of a chosen one by God - followed this time table: Death of his physical body: 1968; Beatified: 1999; Canonized: 2002
(d) The Canonization process of Joan of Arc - Burned at the stake as a servant of satan: 1431; Beatified: 1909; Canonized: 1920

but then....

(e) The Canonization process of Josemaria Escrivá (1) - a man who had the audacity to pose to his followers as "The Father" and to publish his standard bearer booklet with the title "The Way" - outright subliminal challenge the only "Way" - Jesus Christ  :   Death of his physical body: 1975; Beatified: 1992; Canonized: 2002

while....

(f) The responsibility for the greatest catastrophe to befall humanity since the Noah's Flood cataclysm - World War II - rests upon the RC Church Administration. Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin would have been powerless if the very simple and straight forward instructions given by Heaven would have been followed. (2)

Is it necessary that we draw a picture as to who is the power broker in the RC Church Administration? We will give you a hint: Escriva's "The Way" is composed of 999 maxims or points. If you would stand on your head - what number do you see now?

Nonetheless remember - do not confuse the Catholic Faith with the Catholic Administration. (3)

From (Mr.) IW @ US


At what point will it be advisable (or essential for spiritual survival) to stay away from Roman Catholic church services, even in parishes where (so far) the Masses are valid and reverent?
 
My hunch is that the no-go line would be when the Vatican machinery announces the False Christ, and gives allegiance to him/it. Likewise, it would be necessary to stay away from the services of any denomination that aligns itself with the False Christ.

But maybe the red line comes sooner than that ...

(Mr.) IW

A.
Thank you for posing such a valid question and giving us the opportunity to demonstrate, once more, that if God has not revealed information to m de P he will not even opine on the matter.

Of course, once the False Christ is officially presented - virtually or in reality - that would be a clear no-go line. Besides that, as of now, all that has been revealed to us regarding this matter is to not join in the prayers offered for Benedict XVI nor Josemaría Escrivá during Mass or any other religious service/function.

If and when God reveals further guidelines regarding this matter, we will announce them via whatever means we are using at the time.

From (Mrs.) ML @ US


In reference to (Mr.) IW's letter about Benedict XVI's performance in Lisbon (see below)...

Thank you for this.

I have gotten this many times from watching him.  I am heartened that others are seeing and hearing the same thing.

(Mrs.) ML


Have you ever noticed that.....
in the Book of Revelations we read:
[our underscoring]

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them, the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. [Revelations 21]

While in the Acts of the Apostles we read about an event which took place before Pentecost:

16 Men, brethren, the scripture must needs be fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was the leader of them that apprehended Jesus: 17 Who was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry....

21 Wherefore of these men who have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus came in and went out among us, 22 Beginning from the baptism of John, until the day wherein he was taken up from us, one of these must be made a witness with us of his resurrection.... 24 And praying, they said: Thou, Lord, who knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, 25 To take the place of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas hath by transgression fallen, that he might go to his own place.

26 And they gave them lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles. [Acts 1]

Yet, after Pentecost, Jesus chose Saul on a most direct manner to be His Apostle Paul, the Apostle which had the greatest impact in the early decades of Christianity.

Therefore, the question is, which name will be left out of the twelve foundations of the city wall?




Published on May 14th, 2010

From (Mr.) IW @ US

Benedict's grand entrance in Lisbon and Mass brought memories of Cleopatra's entrance in Rome as portrayed by Elizabeth Taylor in the sixties movies. Without a doubt it must have caused much sorrow to St. John Bosco since his famous dream (1) seems to have been the subliminal script.

The following is not based on 'research', but rather on what I was led to 'understand' in watching Ratzinger's papal mass in Lisbon today.

First - I should note that I had no preconceived notions when I watched the EWTN live broadcast of the papal mass from Lisbon. However, I did what I have been doing for a while now when watching any such papal event:

Invoking the protection of the Holy Spirit against deception, and (if it be God's Will) that if there is anything that He wishes me to learn or understand from this, His Will be done.

There was very heavy subliminal programming going on in this 'staged show'.

The term - staged show - has great prescience, as Msgr. Guido Marini, the Papal Master of Ceremonies has advanced degrees in the psychology of communication. Prior to this 'show' this was evidence in  such things as the Papal Throne growing ever more ornate and increasingly elevated, and the 'Cleopatra' type water entrances in Sydney and Malta.

As of this writing, better photos (than these (2) ) and video clips of the mass are not yet available. But here we have:

1) the scenic backdrop of a 'safe harbor'; with boats anchored..... 'to the holy father'.
2) In wider shots, there appeared to be twin columns on either side of the papal mass stage
3) The cross which grows out of the papal throne (nothing subtle, eh?) has the Holy Spirit descending literally upon Benedict's head.
4) You may be able to discern the transparent screen at the rear of the 'stage', through which you view the 'harbor'. During certain part of the mass, EWTN seems to have used it for a 'composite shot (several times) in which the complete scene (boats anchored, harbor, twin columns, cross, pope, were melded together in a trick shot using this as a sort of 'greenscreen'.

As if all that were not enough, I 'detected' what you might call subliminal backmasking. It would take me a while to unscramble all the messages conveyed (3), but this was the essence:

"........I am with you always....... today I walk with  you..... Christ is not two thousand years distant from us, but is really present among us: he gives us the Truth and he gives us the light which is our life and helps us find the path towards the future....... pre-eminently present in the sacrament of his Body and Blood I am with you....... a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and he who believes in him will not be put to shame”....... Draw near to the Lord, “that living stone, rejected by men but in God's sight chosen and precious”......... those who believe in Jesus will not be put to shame: he is the Word of God,....... no adverse power will ever be able to destroy the Church.......... A vast effort at every level is required if every Christian is to be transformed into a witness capable of rendering account to all and at all times of the hope that inspires him ........ only I can fully satisfy the profound longings of every human heart and give answers to its most pressing questions concerning suffering, injustice and evil, concerning death and the life hereafter........ it is necessary to proclaim anew with vigour and joy the reinvention of the death and resurrection of Christ, the heart of Christianity......"

The words he used- his phrases - jumped out as double/triple and/or inverse meaning. I understood that he was referring to himself, regardless of the pious verbiage used. In some cases, I 'heard' two things at once.  Demoniacally clever. Nobody would suspect a thing. I cannot explain this further, except to summarize the subliminal:

"Worship me.... obey me...... the church is your only hope... obedience".

I have no idea how others perceived this, if indeed many did. It is likely that 'nothing funny'; will turn upon in any video of this mass.

One wonders what else Marini studied......

God bless you!


(Mr.) IW


A. Thank you for sharing the above with our readers. Although we have access to all Portuguese TV channels - courtesy of a cooperator - we have just had a glimpse or two of the events. The sorrow was almost overwhelming. The best way we can describe it is as follows: Imagine being a German citizen watching those pep rallies for which Hitler was so well known and knowing, without a shred of a doubt, how it was all going to end.

The only consolations for m de P were: (a) Knowing that he was doing all God Willed him to do to alert those of the Elect with eyes and ears still closed; and (b) Being able to offer his suffering in reparation for the suffering of Jesus and Mary, which had to be infinitely greater than his.

Do you know..... that the Chemtrail issue is real, and more people should be aware that this is not "one of those" internet legends? (1)

Over the past decade, independent testing of Chemtrails around the country has shown a dangerous, extremely poisonous brew that includes: barium, nano aluminum-coated fiberglass [known as CHAFF], radioactive thorium, cadmium, chromium, nickel, desiccated blood, mold spores, yellow fungal mycotoxins, ethylene dibromide, and polymer fibers. Barium can be compared to the toxicity of arsenic. Barium is known to adversely affect the heart. Aluminum has a history of damaging brain function. Independent researchers and labs continue to show off-the-scale levels of these poisons. A few “anonymous” officials have acknowledged this on-going aerosol spraying.

Numerous tests have been done to verify that these poisons are off the scale in their toxicity. They are documented in our water, in our soil, and in our air. For more than 10 years, researcher Clifford Carnicom has been valiantly and systematically reporting on the various detrimental aspects of these aerosols –and what they are doing to our entire environment, as well as our blood. Various “sky watch” groups also have been carefully documenting and diligently reporting about these daily assaults.


The M+G+R Foundation comments: The truth of the matter is that no one can really do anything about it besides praying for their own protection and that of the innocent.

Published on May 13th, 2010 [
Ascension of Our Lord + Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament + First Apparition of Our Lady at Fátima ]

From miguel de Portugal @ EU and US

As a follow-up to the response to Ms. RM (see immediately below) we wish to address now the veneration of images - such as the Image of the Divine Mercy.

The key word here is veneration - which IS NOT adoration. When we venerate an image we are focusing our total attention on the particular image and what it represents. When we focus our attention on something, a psycho-spiritual connection is established by which "information", for the lack of a better word, "flows" (again, for the lack of a better word).

As we venerate, say, the image of the Divine Mercy, our brain is processing the message it "transmits": the unfathomable Mercy of God and the reality that the greatest sin a man can commit is but a grain of sand when compared with the oceans of His Mercy. All of a sudden, past grievous sins (forgotten or not) break the psychological barrier of denial and surface.... then comes a feeling of "He may forgive me, after all".... which eventually turns into a rush of  "I am sorry, have Mercy on me for I have grievously sinned".... and the purpose of the veneration - in an extreme case - has been fulfilled.

The same, of course, applies with the veneration of a crucifix, as miguel de Portugal experienced without even having a physical crucifix before him. (miguel was  venerating a mental image of  the crucifix at the time.) The awareness that indeed our sins crucified Him (as you may read in m de P's report), generates such great sorrow that it is hard to imagine anything that would exceed it.

From (Ms.) RM @ Puerto Rico

I read your post of May 8th about St. Benedict medal (1) and it scared me. What you said about it makes sense and that is the reason of my scare.
 
I know the pain and anger of God when his people believe in the power of things more than in His power, as is the use of a talisman/amulet.
 
We have practices that could be seen similar to what you said about St. Benedict medal. For example: The miraculous medal, the veneration of The Mercy Image, the Mount of Carmel scapular (Our Lady Of Mount Carmel), etc.

In your FYI&R page you stated that it is "in contrast, the proper use of a simple St. Benedict medal, as one would use another religious symbol, is a different matter and should not be offensive to God".
 
I went to wikipedia in search of the definition of a talisman and it refers me to the definition of an amulet . For my surprise, this page identifies (2) as amulet many of our sacramentals, including the rosary and the holy water.
 
In the present days I believe is very important to have pristine clear the difference of this two possible practices: that one which provoke pain to God versus that one which is not offensive.
 
Please, could you clarify the two practices?
 
Many blessings for you!


(Ms.) RM

A.
As always your questions are most welcome, for they are clearly from a pure soul seeking light. In addition, they give us the opportunity to address very important issues on this page.

First of all, we must understand that to non-Catholics, all our Sacramentals look like amulets. Even the Sacrament of Holy Communion has been viewed by some as cannibalism. (Of course, they do not realize that by equating the consumption of the Holy Communion to cannibalism, they are proclaiming the Real Presence in the consecrated host.)

Secondly - we cannot equate the Miraculous Medal, the Carmelite Scapular or the Rosary with a medal or relic of any saint - no matter how great he/she may have been. While subject to the Most Holy Trinity, Mary is above all and everyone else.

The Miraculous Medal was designed by Mary Herself. The prayer inscribed on it (3) was given by Her as well as the "Instructions for its use". Since Her Son, God in the Flesh, paid attention to Her requests at the wedding feast of Cana and (in spite of His initial "Woman, what is that to me and to thee? my hour is not yet come." [John 2:4]) pleased Her by turning water into wine,
one would be very disoriented not to be attentive to Her requests and make every effort to please Her in the measure that one is able to.

The Carmelite Scapular - the same as above.

The Holy Rosary
(4) - the same as above.

Amazingly enough, even those in great distress are often blinded by satan and do not pray the Rosary (despite the level of faith they believe to have). They ignore the Holy Rosary (the most powerful prayer after the Sacrifice of the Mass), and instead use second-level Sacramentals as talismans.


Is Holy Water an amulet? Only if one does not believe in the Sacrament of Baptism and its renewal as we bless ourselves with Holy Water.

However, all of the above - and much more – can be (and often are!) used as amulets by under-Evangelized souls. As we have extensively explained elsewhere (5) one may visit the many churches in, say, Rome, Spain or Portugal and sit in a corner and watch "the Faithful". The last thing that they may pay attention to (if they notice it at all) is the Blessed Sacrament, the very underpinning of the Catholic Faith! Meanwhile, the disoriented Faithful rush to the statues to touch them, kiss them, embrace them and, yes, lick them too!


Even if their Baptismal Certificate was signed by a Pope, they must be technically considered pagans.

If one hangs a Rosary from the rear view mirror of the car - it could be an amulet or not. It depends what the purpose is. If it is for "Good luck", it is an amulet; if it is to have it in a handy place - as m de P and many others do - to pray while driving, then it is a Sacramental.

If you consecrate your vehicle or house to, say, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and you place Her medal in the vehicle or house, then you are using it as a Sacramental symbol. If, on other hand, you just place it in your home or vehicle "to keep evil away", then the Medal has become a talisman/amulet.

If wherever you look in your residence or office you see holy pictures - saints included - because you rejoice in keeping them in the forefront of your mind.... that pleases God very much. If you plaster your walls with holy images to ward off evil - then again they are amulets.

If you keep holy images hidden in your bedroom and nowhere else in the house one may offend God - unless due to socio-political reasons in that particular area/region it is prudent to keep them out of sight from the casual visitor. In the place of work, of course, other rules apply and the display - if any - should be toned down considerably - but not omitted.

What is "going over the top" at the office? Before the man who became  m de P left the world and was still engaged in his professions, the President of the company with which he had a very lucrative contract came in to his office to politely request that he discontinued the incense burning during his prayer sessions at the office. This, brethren, is no joke! Of course, the company President was right. The prayers continued without the incense and candles.

Of course - if you use any of the above mentioned Sacramentals for the right purpose we assure you, satan and his minions will "simply not drop by".

If we have not been clear enough - please ask again and we will gladly try once more. This issue is very important since far too many Catholics practice idolatry and not the Holy and Pristine Faith (which God personally ensured the would reach us in spite of the RCC Church Administration).

Did you know that..... already by 1862 someone - Arthur Hugh Clough - had revised the much invoked (yet seldom obeyed as given) Decalogue (Ten Commandments) to reflect how most monotheists - Jews, Christians and Muslims - understood and lived them?

To wit:

The Latest Decalogue
 
Thou shalt have one God only; who
Would be at the expense of two?

No graven images may be
Worshipp'd, except the currency:

Swear not at all; for, for thy curse
Thine enemy is none the worse:

At church on Sunday to attend
Will serve to keep the world thy friend:

Honour thy parents; that is, all
From whom advancement may befall:

Thou shalt not kill; but need'st not strive
Officiously to keep alive:

Do not adultery commit;
Advantage rarely comes of it:

Thou shalt not steal; an empty feat,
When it's so lucrative to cheat:

Bear not false witness; let the lie
Have time on its own wings to fly:

Thou shalt not covet; but tradition
Approves all forms of competition.

Sad, but accurate, isn't it? Then we have those who go around wondering "Where was (or is) God?" when this or that happened. One day man will learn that the adverb "slow" does not mean the same as "never".

The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. [Psalm 103:8]

which is further clarified at...

The LORD is slow to anger and great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. [Nahum 1:3]

Excerpts from a letter From (Mr.) IW @ Somewhere in Asia

Item (a): I hope you will not be discouraged (by my progress, or perhaps lack thereof) when I say that the constant testing tires me. I know I shouldn't feel this way and yet I do. My "faith muscles" do not seem to have developed symmetrically - strong at some points, weak in others. I also know I have no one to blame for these trials but myself, yet like any other spoiled child I do not joyfully embrace the discipline. What an idiot I am. My own weakness exasperates me.
 
Item (b): I only take solace in the fact that there are people who do rise above their limitations, who do His will as He intends them to, and do not bow to the pressures of the world. It may be shallow of me to say this, but while I do not envy the role He has ordained for you, I do wish I had your strength of faith.

IW

A.

Item (a): As we have said many times, God's judgment of a soul is based on how hard that soul has sincerely tried to sanctify itself and the degree of contrition for its falls - not on the level of holiness attained. The keys are "how hard that soul has sincerely tried" and "true contrition".

How could we possibly be discouraged if you honestly recognize your misery and struggle day in and day out to overcome it?

Item (b): A well kept secret (due to the failed Evangelization) is that the highest level of faith to be attained by each individual is different from one to another. We must view virtues as ingredients which go in the making of a particular dish. The amount of each virtue within a soul depends on the amounts of the other virtues - all geared to attain the full potential God has determined for each particular soul.

Just "bang on God's doors" persistently asking Him to grant you the level of faith that He has ordained for you from all Eternity at that particular moment since, a week from now, the level of faith that you must have will be different.  We must see ourselves as "a dish in progress" as we journey through Tim on our way Home.

It is He Who grants the faith upon our request and ability to accept it.

Thank you for the opportunity to address this on this page.

For your information and reference and for the "on-schedule" file, and the "human self-annihilation without Divine Intervention" file ... 
 
This 18-minute video - Jeremy Jackson: How we wrecked the ocean -  goes over the global collapse of oceanic ecosystems: over-fishing, proliferation of invasive and destructive species, pollution, toxic algae, and the spread of oceanic dead zones. It confirms what I have intuited about the state of the planetary ecosystem. It may all be "old news" for you, however.
 
There is a poignant comparison between the catch of fishermen off the Florida Keys in the 1950s/60s, and their catch now. The fish that are now displayed as oceanic trophy fish ... are about like the average trout that our family used to catch in Colorado in the 1960s.
 
All of this leaves aside the effects of the current BP Gulf of Mexico massive oil spill, since the video was made well before then.

LP

A. Considering that Mike, the man who became m de P, started his Chemical and Environmental (2) Engineering practice in the mid sixties -  you are right. Once his eyes were opened by God your statement "It may all be 'old news' for you,....." fully applies.

We can safely state that the fact that the ecosystem has not completely collapsed yet is a miracle. This is a miracle worked by God in the hopes that His children would "snap out of it" and start to make amends to Him and to their fellow men (and logically with the Earth's ecosystem, which God created). Of course, none of that happened since the Christian Evangelizers had become predators (3) instead and the Evangelization - the only hope for any system - failed.

We say  "...the only hope for any system..." with such conviction that I cannot think of anything else about which we are so sure. Man is a complete failure without God and Evangelization was designed by God to establish a solid line of communication between His children and Himself.

Do you know that.... contrary to the popular belief, Abraham was not the first to practice monotheism?

God chose Abraham to start leading His chosen people (1) back to Paradise from which the first monotheists - which Adam and Eve represent (2) - were expelled for disobeying the very simple instructions given to them by God.

As we said just a few lines above: Man is a complete failure without God, and Evangelization was designed by God to establish a solid line of communication between His children and Himself. However, humanity's failure without God does not mean that godless men are to be subjugated or mistreated. On the contrary, those are the ones upon which we must fix our loving gaze. Through godly words and deeds, we must bring the godless people back Home.

Didn't He say: ...there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. [Luke 15:7]

Therefore - nothing will give God more joy than our every non-fanatical effort to lead to Him as many souls as He intended for us to do from all Eternity.

I decided to pursue further the issue of the very popular crucifix combined with the famous St. Benedict medal which was posted on this page on May 8th. (1)

Until today, I had never heard of the crucifix/medal combination. The pictures of it on the referenced page (2) are shocking ... they make Benedict and his medal, not Christ, the focus of attention ... and the medal is placed above Christ's head!

Pursuing this issue further I found some very strange items in the history of the plain St. Benedict medal. The Catholic Encyclopedia quote says: 

It is doubtful when the Medal of St. Benedict originated. During a trial for witchcraft at Natternberg near the Abbey of Metten in Bavaria in the year 1647, the accused women testified that they had no power over Metten, which was under the protection of the cross.

Upon investigation, a number of painted crosses, surrounded by the letters which are now found on Benedictine medals, were found on the walls of the abbey, but their meaning had been forgotten. Finally, in an old manuscript, written in 1415, was found a picture representing St. Benedict holding in one hand a staff which ends in a cross, and a scroll in the other.

On the staff and scroll were written in full the words of which the mysterious letters were the initials. Medals bearing the image of St. Benedict, a cross, and these letters began now to be struck in Germany, and soon spread over Europe. They were first approved by Benedict XIV in his briefs of 23 December, 1741, and 12 March, 1742.

The origin and value of the medal seems to be tied to "evidence" from a witch trial in Germany. Germany was heavily involved in witch-hunts in the 1500s and 1600s, with widespread torture and executions.

Another red flag is that the monks of the abbey had forgotten the meaning of the symbols on the crosses in their monastery. How could they forget something that supposedly was so spiritually important.

As if that were not enough, it was Benedict XIV who first approved the medal in 1741-1742.
 
Regarding the reference's data on the blessing of St. Maurus ...
 
Quote:
 
St. Maurus was a disciple of St. Benedict, and his defender against those who persecuted him. Pope St. Gregory the Great described him as a model of religious virtue, especially obedience.
 
Obedience ... brings to mind the Opus Dei and Legionnaires of Christ  favorite "virtue".
 
(Mr.) IW


A. Thank you for sharing your views with us.

As we read your quotations, the region - Bavaria - lit up the proverbial board.   Bavaria (3) is the state of Germany made well known in recent times by Adolf Hitler (4) and Benedict XVI (5)

Since Benedict XVI is the precursor of the False Christ (6), and since we know well what is satan's Final Act (7)  and how it relates to the work started by Hitler, we will never be able to look at a St. Benedict medal the same way again.

In any case - it is St. Michael the Archangel who is the one appointed by God to fight satan and protect God's people from harm. It is Mary and Her Most Holy Rosary that are the nemesis of satan. Thus we must ask - Since when did the medal of St. Benedict, or St. Benedict himself, surpass Michael the Archangel and the "...woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars? [Rev. 12:1]

It must have been right before it was placed on an equal footing with the Holy Cross....


We could not force fit or force connect all those dots even if we tried it. One must be virtually blind not to see the horrific picture.

From (Mr.) WS @ US

In reference to your May 3, 2010 "Do you know how.... to easily tell the difference between a staged attack (terrorist or warfare) and a real one?" (1)

I always wondered why there had been no US response to real Acts of War such as the capture of the USS Pueblo by North Korea during the Viet Nam era and the attack on the USS Liberty by Israel during the Six Day War.  It seems that surprise attacks like those are like a blow to the belly and leave us in shock and unable to adequately reply. 

Could it be that maybe, just maybe the sinking of the USS Maine (Spanish American War), the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand (WWI), the invasion of Poland and Pearl Harbor (World War II), etc., were all staged events, manipulations leading to other staged "wars" Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq (no. 1) and (no. 2) and Afghanistan.

These kinds of machinations and manipulations only serve to confuse us as common citizens and gradually have worn away our sense of purpose and faith in the institutions, church and state, that gives us our identity and will to go on.  To contest Marie Antoinette, I don't want to eat cake anymore I want real sustenance.

My only recourse is faith in Jesus and the Holy Eucharist. 

IW

A. The is no better recourse than the one you have chosen.

If we were to start a new web page, say "The Daily Deceits", the daily lies and deceits, not to mention conspiracies, by politicians and religious institutions (not only the RC Church) we could not do anything else and yet, the list would be incomplete.

For example...

+ Almost everyone thinks that "Reporters without borders" is an independent group. Apparently.... not so (2).
+ Most people - especially abroad - thought that President Obama was bringing a humane brand of Imperialism to the White House. Apparently.... not so (3) (In any case, Obama's decision to retain George W. Bush's Secretary of Defense should have been a total give away of the New Administration's intent.)
+ Most people - especially in the UK and the rest of Europe - thought that their "fair and square" election outcome was going to be a clear ousting of Labor. Apparently... not so. The traditional appointment with the Queen for tea on the morning after the election had not been scheduled according to a Buckingham Palace spokesman. What did they know that the rest of the UK did not? Answer: The mixed bag election result which would not produce a clear winner ready for tea in the AM.

In other words.... In God we continue to trust, and the little trust we had in men and institutions "went up in volcanic ash".

Do you know that.... the reassurances made by Facebook to their hundred of millions of "devotees" about their privacy hold as much water as a colander? (1)

For many users of Facebook, the world's largest social network, it was just the latest in a string of frustrations.

On Wednesday, users discovered a glitch that gave them access to supposedly private information in the accounts of their Facebook friends, like chat conversations.

Not long before, Facebook had introduced changes that essentially forced users to choose between making information about their interests available to anyone or removing it altogether.

Although Facebook quickly moved to close the security hole on Wednesday, the breach heightened a feeling among many users that it was becoming hard to trust the service to protect their personal information.

“Facebook has become more scary than fun,” said Jeffrey P. Ament, 35, a government contractor who lives in Rockville, Md.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
  We repeat (and pray that people are really taking note of it and following suit): In God we continue to trust, and the little trust we had in men and institutions "went up in volcanic ash".

Did you know that.... the very popular crucifix combined with (1) the famous St. Benedict medal silently says that the precious crucifix with our Lord Jesus Christ is not enough to protect us and He needs the help of St. Benedict to protect the wearer?

Think about this very, very carefully because that is exactly what the innocent wearer of such talisman (yes, that is what is being used as) is telling Our Lord and proclaiming to the world.

We understand that the believer who uses one of these crucifix/medal combinations is doing so with the best of intentions and is innocent from guilt.... but he/she is not free of the consequences associated with it. Remember, the victims of World War II were not guilty of the refusal of the RC Church Administration to obey the clear and specific instructions from Heaven, yet they suffered the consequences.

Now, in contrast, the proper use of a simple St. Benedict medal, as one would use another religious symbol, is a different matter and should not be offensive to God.
 
It is interesting - This combined crucifix/medal is being presented to the Faithful as a protection against the evil one, yet what it proclaims to the world is that "the crucifix is just not enough". Do you hear the cackling of satan? But then again.... should we be surprised? Now, a Benedict - the 16th, this time - is functioning as the AntiChrist (2).

As if all of that were not enough to raise the proverbial red flags, consider the Blessing of St. Maurus (1):

There is also a formal, priestly blessing offered to the sick -- the Blessing of St. Maurus -- that requires either a relic of the True Cross or the St. Benedict Medal. St. Maurus was a disciple of St. Benedict, and his defender against those who persecuted him. Pope St. Gregory the Great described him as a model of religious virtue, especially obedience.

A St. Benedict medal is being equated with a relic from the True Cross. This is scandalous!

Did you know....
that Baptism in the Jordan River is very dangerous to your health? (1)

Standing on the Jordanian bank of the Jordan River right where many believe Jesus was baptized, Mikhail Mikhayev, a Russian tourist, enters the brownish water wearing a long white robe. He takes a deep breath and plunges his entire head and body under the water. He stands up, crosses himself, and repeats the dunking and crossing twice more.

Mikhayev may have had a spiritual experience, but it wasn't a healthy one. Standing on the Israeli-controlled side of the site, Gidon Bromberg, of Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME), talks about the dangers.

"If you drink the water, you're likely to get diarrhea or stomach problems, and if you have a cut, you will probably get a rash," he told AOL News.

"Israel bans people from being baptized here, and the Jordanians advise against it, but it's still hard to stop people."

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:  We continue to repeat (and still pray that people are really taking note of it and following suit): In God we continue to trust, and the little trust we had in men and institutions "went up in volcanic ash".

Do you know that.... Former President G. W. Bush, in a top-secret phone call to a major European ally, asked for French troops to join American soldiers in attacking Iraq as a mission from God? (1)
[our highlights]

In 2003 while lobbying leaders to put together the Coalition of the Willing, President Bush spoke to France’s President Jacques Chirac. Bush wove a story about how the Biblical creatures Gog and Magog were at work in the Middle East and how they must be defeated.

In Genesis and Ezekiel Gog and Magog are forces of the Apocalypse who are prophesied to come out of the north and destroy Israel unless stopped. The Book of Revelation took up the Old Testament prophesy:

“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle … and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

Bush believed the time had now come for that battle, telling Chirac:

    “This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins”.

The story of the conversation emerged only because the Elysée Palace, baffled by Bush’s words, sought advice from Thomas Römer, a professor of theology at the University of Lausanne. Four years later, Römer gave an account in the September 2007 issue of the university’s review, Allez savoir. The article apparently went unnoticed, although it was referred to in a French newspaper.

The story has now been confirmed by Chirac himself in a new book [Si Vous le Répétez, Je Démentirai (If You Repeat it, I Will Deny)], published in France in March, by journalist Jean Claude Maurice. Chirac is said to have been stupefied and disturbed by Bush’s invocation of Biblical prophesy to justify the war in Iraq and “wondered how someone could be so superficial and fanatical in their beliefs”.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
  This revelation is the "mother of all the smoking guns" which confirms what these madmen - guided by satan - are doing while claiming to be of God.  Individuals like Bush, of the school of  Peter Lemesurier and his "The Armageddon Script - Prophecy in Action" (2), subscribe to the erroneous and most dangerous concept that man needs to help God in fulfillment of prophecies.

This revelation also exposes the root of all conspiracies; conspiracies which are duly denied by those who do not have the faith to face their reality.

Prophecy is indeed fulfilled through the action of man without him being aware of it. When he claims: "I am going to do this, thus and such with the intent of fulfilling prophecy."  you may rest assured that he/she is at the service of satan (and allowed by God).

Let us illustrate such idiocy in an easy to relate scenario....

Imagine Judas Iscariot saying to himself: "Once I figure out exactly how many silver coins I need to charge, I will go ahead and betray Jesus so that Isaiah's prophecies are fulfilled and humanity is saved from its sins."; or

Hitler saying: "Oh, well... the Vatican did not obey Our Lady of Fatima (3) so I guess I have to start WW II so that Her prophecies and warnings are fulfilled."

God does not work in that way and, if there is a human being alive today who can assure you of that with absolute certainty,  it is miguel de Portugal.

Did you know.... that it was Cheney's Halliburton who was the key contractor for the construction of the failed oil drilling platform, the failure which potentially may turn the Gulf of México into one large oil slick? (1) 

* Halliburton performed a variety of services on the rig, including cementing, and had four employees stationed on the rig at the time of the accident. Halliburton's employees returned to shore safely, due, in part, to the brave rescue efforts by the U.S. Coast Guard and other organizations.
* Halliburton had completed the cementing of the final production casing string in accordance with the well design approximately 20 hours prior to the incident. The cement slurry design was consistent with that utilized in other similar applications.
* In accordance with accepted industry practice approved by our customers, tests demonstrating the integrity of the production casing string were completed.
* At the time of the incident, well operations had not yet reached the point requiring the placement of the final cement plug which would enable the planned temporary abandonment of the well, consistent with normal oilfield practice.
* We are assisting with planning and engineering support for a wide range of options designed to secure the well, including a potential relief well.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
  This catastrophe certainly is not the result of a conspiracy per se. It is the result of actions by men and institutions who - being blinded by their arrogance - are not conscious of being part of the fulfillment of the prophecies of the End of These Times.

We are seeing this on the global stage and at all levels - educational and economic .... yet, they are unable to see it because God Wills it so.

Regarding the latest "terrorist" attempt in New York City.....

The curious (and obviously staged) 'car event' in NYCs Times Square is to me funnier then a Marx Brothers movie. As a native NYer and one who was born and grew up a few blocks away from the 'scene of the crime', I felt the need to pass along a few observations:

1) YOU CANNOT PARK THERE!!!! By this I mean: 'do not pass GO, do not collect $200...". In my lifetime it has been literally impossible for a passenger car to park... or stand.... or stop there! Even delivery trucks have severely restricted locations and hours.

2) For the last 30 years there has always been a very strong police presence in the area. Large numbers of uniformed AND plainclothes cops on foot patrol. Marked and unmarked police cars cruise constantly. And uniformed NYPD cops on horseback - for which there has long been a special facility for the horses in the area!

3) NYC tow trucks constantly prowl the side streets - and are expert in hooking up and towing away a car in under 3 minutes (as I know from sorry personal experience).

4) Between all this, the cameras, and the signs ("Do not even THINK of parking here!!!.... Fine and Tow $250 minimum), this is just impossible... unless it was staged/allowed.

The heavy police presence is to protect the thousands of tourists and theatergoers. It is strong in daytime; but in the 5- Midnight shift (when the theaters are in operation) it is even stronger.

...and that is when this 'incident' happened.

If I count correctly, this is now the third 'suspicious vehicle' found (amazingly!) parked in the area. One was right on 42 street where all could see it.

The silliness of this became very obvious when I noted that TV reporters 1) could not get the street location correct, constantly changing it and giving conflicting reports, and 2) mentioning 'propane tanks' long before the car had even been opened.......

I guarantee that if you were to park - much less sit idling... a cop would be along within 5 minutes to tell you to move and/or ticket you!

God bless you!

IW

A. Thank you for sharing your perspective from the best vantage point possible - that of a native New Yorker!

From the beginning, the whole operation (psy-operation) appeared to us a half baked staged event. The news reports coming out seem to confirm this.

The memory of  Oswald "hiding" in an empty movie house near the scene of the JFK assassination or Tim McVeigh using as a "get away car" and old beat up vehicle without license plates and blatantly accepting all the blame, have rung a few bells.

It is just a matter of time to see what will  be the "for your own security" enhancements fallout from this event.

From (Mr.) GR @ US

Reflecting on your discussion of H1N1 and its ‘necessary flu shot' I can relate to that (non sequitur).

In seeking an inexpensive healthy daily sustenance. Researching leads one down a path of inquiry based on ones trusting knowledge of proper nutrition and whether available foods are indeed really what they are portrayed to be (call it being in perceived survival mode). At the least, I am concerned with healthy choices; choices of what to eat and choices of what is fit to eat. Up until a century ago this thinking was quite simply: drink fresh local water (not chemically treated), eat fresh (not unnaturally fertilized) vegetables, eat ‘freshly killed’ non-hormone fed animals -  fresh caught ‘wild’ fish, fresh fruit, unprocessed nuts, non-pasteurized dairy and whatever else God has originally provided in the natural state and also generally what God has provided for our food endemically.

Today's diet is ever so complicated due to the availability of choices promulgated by the advertising media enabled by global transportation. The whole world is for your selection. But the price for that is high. Now, to ensure long shelf life (read sustained marketability of each item), processing and lengthy preservation is needed. Some methods such as many from times of antiquity are not harmful while many modern methods alter our food into downright poisonous substances.

 In line with this situation there has developed a vast market for supplements – many of which had their earnest beginnings in successful treatments/folklore medicine passed down through generations. Preceding Big Pharma, many promising discoveries were pursued but then dashed into the ground because they offered no vast potential to wealth. Silver was found to have anti microbial properties; vitamins importance was discovered; substances were discovered that could be used as supplements for nutritional deficiencies; exploration of the body's immune system was producing questions/answers to disease never before possible (yet such knowledge is condemned to tiny footnotes in lieu of Drug profit).

Consider the role fresh non-irradiated garlic could play in fighting MSRA. Has anyone noticed how natural garlic with its attendant God-given properties is devoid of those properties once irradiated to a ‘pure state’ [according to governmental institutions such as the FDA].  Yet to speak in natural garlic's behalf is legal blasphemy. Have you ever cut open a clove of natural garlic and compared it to a cut open clove of irradiated garlic ? Notice the lack of a green germ shoot within the irradiated clove -  now it has a pathetic brown, dead or open void; a witness to its impotence and inability to produce the wonderful cascade of chemical events/substances (one being allicin) of curative nature.

Man's scientific arrogance together with lobbyist facilitated greed has corrupted our food supply and enslaved us to a future of fast diminishing nutrition. Does ANYONE care - Read about Codex Alimentarius. Has satan decided to torture us a new way – by deceit through our leaders to force-poison first our minds then our people's food? I have written to one of my state senators and received the reply - “Thank you for contacting me regarding the federal regulation of dietary supplements. I appreciate hearing from you.

While I recognize the potential health benefits of dietary supplements, I strongly believe that consumers need to have accurate information about these substances…”       Here's a thought from Albert Einstein: "If the honey bee ever disappeared, man will only have four years left to live."  ….and what are we now hearing in the news about the U.S. having terminally lost 1/3 of their bees so far…?

I am 66 and living on the verge of foreclosure and must juggle every dollar spent. It wasn't always like this and I now know how easy it is for the poorest folk to be sickly. One must choose amongst nutritive food, heat/utilities/insurance/taxes/licences AND/OR shelter – whatever is crying the loudest to be paid on an insufficient income.

In spite of that reality, I truly trust in Jesus every day one day at a time. I follow your thought Miguel when you say we are heading inexorably toward the abyss as we veer further away from the Truth… but I do pray –

Yours in Christ,


GR

A.
You are truly Blessed because: (a) You see "progress" for what it really is; (b) You are able to trust Jesus every day - one day at a time; (c) You clearly see that
we are heading inexorably toward the abyss as we veer further away from the Truth; and (d) You do pray.

If more of the thousands upon thousands who view what we publish the the Name of God were in that position, we would consider it a most rewarding consolation.

Thank you for taking the time to share a testimony that most need to carefully review and ponder about.

May God continue to Bless and Keep you!

Did you know that.... Cardinal Dario Catrillón Hoyos has struck back with a vengeance to those who have marginalized him as of late, including Benedict XVI? (1)

Castrillón Hoyos has claimed that Pope Benedict XVI, as cardinal prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), was involved in a 2001 decision to praise a French bishop for protecting a priest convicted of raping a boy and sexually assaulting 10 others.

According to the Associated Press, Cardinal Castrillón told Colombia’s RCN radio on 22 April that the decision to send a congratulatory letter to Bishop Pierre Pican of Bayeux-Lisieux was the product of a high-level meeting that included the then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.

“It was a meeting of cardinals,” he said. “Therefore the current Pope [Benedict XVI], who at the time was a cardinal, was present. The Pope [John Paul II] was never at those meetings. However, the Holy Father was indeed present when we spoke about this matter in the council, and the cardinals ruled,” Cardinal Castrillón reportedly said.

and that....

....a staggering 6.25 million German Catholics, that is a quarter of the German Church, are expected to leave the Church this year because of the scandal?

This will cost the Church millions of euros as people leaving opt out of paying church tax (8 per cent of income tax).  In Austria, 30,000 Catholics have left the Church this year, compared to 21,000 by this time last year, which was a record year. (1)


The M+G+R Foundation comments:
  This is what happens when one places one's Faith in man or an institution (political or religious) and not in God. No matter how much "cognitive dissonance" (2) and "denial" (3) one applies to self, sooner or later one's fantasies will collapse as the truth cannot be repressed any longer. Just as He announced:

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. [Luke 12:3]

Someone may say: Well, what about one's faith? What if it "collapses"?

True faith (not intellectual/learned "faith")  is given by God - it is not acquired by man. What God gives you no man can take from you. i.e.

No man can come to me, except the Father, who hath sent me, draw him; and I will raise him up in the last day. [John 6:44]

and

That which my Father hath given me, is greater than all: and no one can snatch them out of the hand of my Father. [John 10:29]

Therefore, the fact that the RC Church Administration has been run mostly by scoundrels for millenia does not affect in any way our position about the Catholic Faith which has reached us at the most crucial time since creation in spite of said scoundrels. (4)

regular flu vaccine actually increases risk of Swine Flu?
(1)
[our highlights]

In September 2009, news stories reported that researchers in Canada had found an increased risk of pandemic H1N1 (pH1N1) influenza in people who had previously been vaccinated against seasonal influenza.

Several public health agencies in Canada undertook four additional studies during the summer of 2009 to investigate further. Taken together, the four studies included approximately 2,700 people with and without pH1N1.


The first of the studies found the seasonal vaccine to be associated with an increased risk of approximately 68 percent for pH1N1 disease.

Did you know that.... "they" (whomever "they" may be) are already "beating the drums" about the resurgence of the H1N1 virus and the importance of being vaccinated? (1)

A year ago today, health authorities confirmed the nation's first case of the H1N1 flu virus, a subtype of influenza A.

It took less than a month for the virus, which is believed to have originated in the Mexican capital in mid-April last year, to arrive in Korea.

A team of doctors at Korea University College of Medicine recently published an article on the government's response to the flu outbreak stating that the early response between April and July was successful in blocking the spread of the virus here.

With warmer seasons nearing here, people's fears are also growing about the possible second wave of an H1N1 outbreak.

"Considering the past history of pandemics, we can't rule out the possibility of a reemergence of the new flu virus," the team of Korea University doctors warned in its report.

The M+G+R Foundation comments:  "They" may still have plenty of vaccine stock to unload or must "finish the job" at hand.

Do you know how.... to easily tell the difference between a staged attack (terrorist or warfare) and a real one?  (1)

It is amazingly easy. Take a look at the response to the event. A most recent and glaring example of a non staged event is the sinking of a South Korean warship by North Korea. Had it been staged, with "a response" in mind, there would have been an immediate and violent response.

On the other hand, a classic staged event hoping for a response which would, in turn, justify a violent reaction was the "mistaken" attack of the PRC (Chinese) Embassy in Belgrade by the US back in 1999. (2)  Quoting from the news report:

The only target the CIA picked for NATO's 11-week bombing campaign on Yugoslavia was the one that led to the U.S. attack on the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, CIA Director George Tenet said Thursday.

One factor was the method used to find the precise location of the target -- an intelligence officer using land navigation techniques that should not be used for aerial targeting because they provide only an ``approximate location,''

"This episode is unusual,'' Tenet said, because the CIA does not normally put together by itself specific targets that include coordinates for bombing operations. The CIA usually provides more analytical judgements or specific information on targets selected by others, he said.

"The attack was a mistake,'' Tenet said. "Let me emphasize, our investigation has determined that no one -- I repeat no one -- knowingly targeted the Chinese embassy,'' he said.

The M+G+R Foundation comments:  There are examples everywhere which the reader can unravel for him/herself.

From (Mrs.) BK @ USA

May the peace and love of Our Risen Lord be with you and yours always!
 
Please be patient with me as I try to understand what you are saying through your document How Love Is Replaced By Fear and How To Avoid It (1).

I thoroughly understand that if the human race had actually listened and followed the call of Our Lady of Fatima and actually charitably prayed for sinners, we would not be in the predicament that we are in now.  I get that.

However, I truly wish that more priests would present Hell and its eternal consequences as Fr. Furniss has done.  We are all lost souls and without any personal acceptance of our sins and the common mis-belief that God is not a severe and just Judge, there is no longer any fear of Hell in this sad world.

The most common belief is that "I'm a good person... God knows that, so He will forgive my indiscretion in committing any mortal sin, because I'm just a human and He will forgive me, even though I don't really repent... I'm just looking to have my fun and find the easy way out" .....does this make sense?

Am I not understanding your commentary properly?  Even St. John Bosco was shown where his unrepentant boys end up if they commit mortal sin.  There is no longer any ownership of the sins we commit in this world, nor any sense of what constitutes a sin as mortal.  I am a monthly recipient of  the Sacrament of Confession and I still am bewildered about what is mortal and what is venial in this crazy world of ours.

Perhaps if we all were reminded of Hell and its eternal consequences, there would again be less sinning, more charity to our neighbor and a true return to the Sacraments.
 
Thank you for all you do for us, miguel!

Thank you for your continued prayers.  As an update, we are financially ruined... are looking at bankruptcy or foreclosure.  My husband has taken a $10/hr. job in [state edited out] as a way to keep us afloat until we know God's will for us.... doors keep slamming shut here in [state edited out], so we need to discern where it is we are to end up..... be assured of my prayers for you and yours.

(Mrs.) BK


A. Thank you for taking the time to write and express your views as well as for your very kind words. It gives us an opportunity to clarify this issue further.

We have mentioned satan, his works and deceptions in over 120 of our documents (2) and the reality of hell in over 130 of our documents. (3) We have revealed and explained his deceptions, through the Grace of God, better than we have ever heard or read anywhere. It logically follows that we are trying to make the point that satan and hell are a reality and warning one and all about them.

We have also made very clear that there is a vast difference between a "warning" and a "threat." We summarily reject, with the authority granted by God, Furniss' failed brand of  Evangelization.

As we have also explained a number of times - the latest being in a recent document (3)  -  when an individual is born in Time his ultimate destination - Heaven or hell - is known to God.  Since in Eternity, where there is no past nor future, that soul already is wherever it was destined for. Therefore the Evangelization was supposed to: (a) Minimize the damage done in Time by those souls who are already in hell but physically alive on Earth; and (b) Minimize the suffering satan wants to inflict on souls who are destined for Heaven as they journey through Time.

This is why the "Pillars for Salvation and for a Safe Journey" are: (a) Love God above all (by word and deed); and (b) Love thy neighbor as thyself.

When one truly loves God one cannot help but love one's neighbor which then, by the very nature of love, moves us to: ...Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: [Matthew 5:44]

We have also amply explained how "Love" works in a soul (4) and recommend a review of this document.

Therefore, we must make sure with illustrative warnings, not with threats, that the Faithful understand the reality of sin, satan and hell. We must also live and teach by example the "Pillars of Salvation" as defined above (and endorsed by the only One Who truly matters, God): Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself. [Luke 10:27]

The unsaid part of your message is that because of the Second Vatican Council (5) the world is where it is now since the "evil council" debunked satan and hell.

Tragically, as you point out, the existence of hell and satan have been de-emphasized by the alleged Evangelizers but, we ask you, Does it really matter at this time? If the techniques used by the alleged Evangelizers of  the pre Vatican II Church had been worth anything, the world would have never reached the point it is in now. The Church already was in serious need of repair in the time of Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) - nearly 800 years before said Council. The reality is that Christianity started going off its tracks the moment Constantine made it the Religion of the Empire (6) - a strictly political move to shore up his falling empire.

Regarding being "...bewildered about what is mortal sin and what is venial sin in this crazy world of ours" there is no need to be. If we focus our whole attention in God and strive to truly love Him above all, strive to do His Will at all times, and to console Him, somehow the individual in question will not need to worry much about categories of sin because, even if said individual was about to, unknowingly, commit a grave sin, He will gently stop him/her.

We regret that you must go through the difficult times that you are experiencing now but, as you well know, God does not make mistakes; therefore, there must be a very important purpose(s) for these trials and we pray that whatever purpose it is, will soon be achieved. Many years ago, after his conversion but before his departure from the world, the man who became m de P had to file for bankruptcy since he felt that the other option would not have been acceptable to God (7). That was one of several severe tests God subjected him to before opening the floodgates of plenty - on all fronts....  only to then ask him to leave all behind and follow Him, which, through the Grace of God, he did.

In closing.... You state "so we need to discern where it is we are to end up". The answer has been placed before you and the world in a Silver Platter since 1992 and it still is available (8) and further clarified when we published the Real Time Line of Creation. (9)

In conclusion.... Keep your focus on God and not satan; on Heaven and not hell; on loving and consoling Jesus and Mary and not on elusive definitions and grading of sins.  Then a new life will dawn upon you.

Did you know that.... a movement to arrest Pope Benedict XVI for international crimes against humanity when he arrives in Britain later this year went noisily public on Sunday, April 11th? (1)

Just as former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet was arrested at a London hospital on a Spanish warrant under the novel legal concept of "universal jurisdiction," lawyers are assembling the case that Pope Benedict could be held on charges of crimes against humanity, specifically child sexual slavery.

The Sunday Times called it a planned "ambush" that could embarrass the British government and force an awkward confrontation with the courts over diplomatic immunity.

Internationally, the Vatican is treated as a sovereign state for many purposes, including the signing of treaties, but its legal status is uncertain, and it sits at the United Nations only as an observer.

On his blog on Sunday, Prof. Dawkins denied telling The Sunday Times anything so "personally grandiloquent" as wanting to slap the cuffs on the pontiff himself, but he expressed wholehearted support for the idea, which he credits to fellow deity slayer Christopher Hitchens.

The M+G+R Foundation comments:  Imagine if Dawkins and/or Hitchens "got a whiff" of the responsibility of the RC Church Administration for the greatest holocaust humanity has experienced since Noah's Flood (2) - World War II -  they would do it without thinking twice about it.
