Posted on June 30th, 2011 [Memorial of the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome]

Have you heard that.... the Supreme Court on Monday struck down, on First Amendment grounds, a California law that banned the sale of violent video games to children? (1)

The 7-to-2 decision was the latest in a series of rulings protecting free speech, joining ones on funeral protests, videos showing cruelty to animals, and political speech by corporations.

In a second decision Monday, the last day of the term, the court also struck down an Arizona campaign finance law as a violation of the First Amendment.

Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for five justices in the majority in the video games decision, Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association, No. 08-1448, said video games were subject to full First Amendment protection.

"Like the protected books, plays and movies that preceded them, video games communicate ideas - and even social messages - through many familiar literary devices (such as characters, dialogue, plot and music) and through features distinctive to the medium (such as the player's interaction with the virtual world)," Justice Scalia wrote. "That suffices to confer First Amendment protection."

Depiction of violence, Justice Scalia added, have never been subject to government regulation. "Grimm's Fairy Tales, for example, are grim indeed," he wrote, recounting the gory plots of "Snow White," "Cinderella" and "Hansel and Gretel." High school reading lists and Saturday morning cartoons, too, he said, are riddled with violence.

miguel de Portugal comments: What next? Hard core pornography video games? How about, for those whose "customs" allow it (2), pederasty video games? After all, it can be argued by those insane minds that if those bent on pederasty "get it out of their system" virtually with video games, they will do it less in reality, thus "saving countless children".

We could go on for pages, but what for? Most of our readers are wise and illuminated enough that they can imagine what else we will use to demonstrate the reality this most grave error.

In the religious, moral and social sense, the world is now an expired society, a collapsed civilization. We solemnly and unceasingly pray to God that He quickly brings the present age to an end,  for "...unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened." [Matthew 24:22]

For those who, with the best intentions, are praying to God for more time before the End of These Times we have the same words Our Lord Jesus had for Peter when Peter tried to stop what had to take place then for the benefit of humanity: Go behind me, Satan, because thou savorest not the things that are of God, but that are of men. [Mark 8:33]

God, and anyone else that may know me well enough, knows that every word is meant. If I knew that God was going to "pull the plug" in the next five minutes, I would be the happiest creature on Earth. (God has allowed me to see things as they are worldwide as well as their destructive consequences to souls, and that is how bad the world’s situation is now.)

Posted on June 29th, 2011 [Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul]

From miguel de Portugal

If today were not the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, the Gospel would have been that of Wednesday of the 13th Week of Ordinary time - Matthew 8: 28-34.

In said Gospel, we read about Jesus expelling demons from two men of the country of the Gerasenes who were possessed. As you may recall, the demons went  "... into the swine, and behold the whole herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea: and they perished in the waters." You may also recall how the locals reacted to this marvel "...when they saw Him, they besought Him that He would depart from their coasts."

Never mind that the "...two that were possessed with devils, coming out of the sepulchres, exceeding fierce, so that none could pass by that way." were liberated from satan and no longer posed a threat to the locals.

As you may see - nothing has really changed regarding men's choices from Before Christ, to During Christ, to After Christ: Men will choose Mammon over God even if doing so presents a physical threat to them. Any animal will avoid whatever poses a threat to their safety; yet, men, devoid of the Spirit of God and manipulated by satan makes the irrational choice.

The real problem is when those who claim to be the successors of Sts. Peter and Paul live by those rules too.

Since I was unaware of Jason Berry's new book - Render Unto Rome: The Secret Life of Money in the Catholic Church - I looked it up and found the following in the publisher's press release (1):

"Vatican cardinal in profiteering scheme off American church sales. Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano helped his nephew target shuttered U.S. churches in a plan to buy-low, sell-high. The profiteering scheme used information from the Congregation for the Clergy in Rome, the Vatican office that must approve the sale or liquidation of church assets above a certain value.

In 2003, Sodano and other cardinals gave carte blanche to Boston's new archbishop, Sean O'Malley, to close-and-sell churches to fund lawsuit settlements and fill a deep deficit. The nephew, Andrea Sodano, a building engineer was vice-president of a business in New York led Raffaello Follieri. Berry reports that Cardinal Sodano installed Monsignor Giovanni Carrù as under secretary at Congregation for the Clergy. Follieri paid Carrù to feed information on church properties. Andrea Sodano's office in Italy received $800,000 for services that the FBI later deemed worthless.

An FBI agent calls nephew Andrea Sodano, Carrù and a layman who worked at the Vatican “unindicted coconspirators” in the fraud and money-laundering case that sent Follieri to federal prison. Follieri sent at least $387,000 through the Vatican Bank, raising new questions about the bank's history of money-laundering." (1)

Does any of this ring a bell?

Our 'dear friend' Cardinal Egan was even allegedly linked to this, about which his Chancery went into denial mode.  (2)

All of this - the Peter's Pence issue, the Vatican Bank's seemingly never-ending scandals, and the sex abuse scandals - is intimately tied to the Mammon adored by the cults within the Roman Catholic Church, by 'Footprints' as subtle as those of ....."Gossamer" (3)

A. Ah, yes.... the "holiness" of it all!

Once again we remind one and all to not allow the behavior of the Roman Catholic Church Administrators (1) to stain or deform the Catholic Faith - the Faith which contains the greatest concentration of revealed truths (2) and which is the "best formula" to navigate through Time.

Posted on June 28th, 2011

Have you heard that.... laws, passed in six states in little more than a year, ban abortions at the 20th week after conception, based on the theory that the fetus can feel pain at that point? (1)

Opponents of abortion say they expect that discussion of fetal pain - even in the face of scientific criticism — will alter public perception of abortion, and they have made support for the new laws a litmus test for Republicans seeking the presidency.

“The purpose of this type of bill is to focus on the humanity of the unborn child,” said Mary Spaulding Balch, director of state legislation for the National Right to Life Committee. “Fetal pain is something that people who are in the middle on the abortion issue can relate to.”


miguel de Portugal comments: What politicians will do to get elected and hierarchs to justify themselves!

Now, the opposite camp will probably come up with a counter-offer (to get around this "innovative", “pro-life” spin), to anesthetize the fetus so that he/she can be aborted any time up to birth.

This spinning of the theology of abortion reminds us of John Paul II's categorizing pederasty as a crime against customs. (2)

To summarize the spinning of the theology of abortion and pederasty – and God’s response to such twisted thinking:

(a) For the secular politicians, the "theology" of abortion seems to hinge on the number of votes either side can obtain as they spin the issue. In reality, God never accepts abortion under any circumstances whatsoever, even if the mother’s life is in danger.

Those who, in any form or fashion promote, perform, or justify the abortion of any newly conceived child, for any reason, violate one of the key Commandments: Thou halt not kill [Exodus 20:13]. This Commandment is critical; in importance, it comes directly after the two Great Commandments stated by Christ:

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets. [Matthew 22: 37-40]

Remember that from the very beginning, God clearly expressed how serious it was to kill another human being. He said to Cain, the first murderer:

And the Lord said to him: No, it shall not be so: but whosoever shall kill Cain, shall be punished sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, that whosoever found him should not kill him. [Genesis 4: 15]

(b) For the Church hierarchy, the legality and morality of pederasty is relative and seem to depend on local customs. Nevertheless, Jesus made no exceptions when He said:

...he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.
[Matthew 18:6]

It is amazing how fortunate the pedophile priests (and the hierarchs involved in the cover ups) are. If the same “theology” (3) the Roman Catholic Church used to justify the destruction of alleged heretics or those deemed possessed was to be applied to them, the abusive priests and corrupt bishops would all be outfitted with a millstone and dropped into the sea.

To summarize: The application of God's laws do not hinge on the whims – and relativism – of politicians or hierarchs.

But what do I know? After all, I don't wear pretty red slippers, nor do I have men's colognes named after me. (4)

Posted on June 27th, 2011 [Feast of Mary of Perpetual Help]

From (Mrs.) KH @ US

Once again, Friday 24th's
(1) Divine Encouragement (2) posting spoke directly to my heart, as my family is undergoing severe spiritual warfare.

On another – and possibly related matter (regarding the severe spiritual warfare that my family is undergoing) – many years ago I read a document here about spiritual preparedness, reminding us that while many prophecies are warning about different end times scenarios, we really have to be prepared to face our judgment at any given moment, not to put off our conversion till tomorrow.  (3)

Paraphrasing your words - you asked us, how could we be sure that an asteroid would not hit us in that remote country location where we would escape to... or that an SUV could blow a tire on the freeway and we could die that way?

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I was traveling on a notoriously dangerous stretch of freeway. As always, I had prayed for Divine Protection before even leaving my driveway. I had my four daughters and my baby boy with me. Suddenly a woman pulled alongside us, waving frantically, telling me that my back tire was very flat. It was so strange, we never felt a bump.

Suddenly there was an explosion, and the truck began shaking violently, and the children began screaming. God gave me the presence of mind to keep my hands firmly on the wheel, and guide us safely to the shoulder, down from 70 MPH. I put my flashers on and called my husband (and police, to shut that lane down, because people were swerving to avoid my quarter panel which had been blown off in the explosion).

Later, when my son was changing the tire, he found a huge coil of heavy wire intertwined in the rubber, which I had obviously not seen and run over and which had caused the explosive flat tire.

While we sat waiting for help, construction workers yelled at me from across the highway, telling me to retrieve from the freeway my car part which had been hit dozens of times. They were actually suggesting that I should leave the relative safety of my truck, and my children!, to retrieve a worthless car part. They never lifted a finger to help.

I prayed out loud for continued Divine protection because cars were swerving all over the freeway to avoid the debris. Since there was no shoulder we were very vulnerable to being hit while waiting to be rescued.

The day ended with prayers of thanksgiving, and finally, calmed nerves.

It could have been a very tragic day for my family and others, but I and my daughters were ready for that day, to meet Jesus, if He had allowed us to crash and die.

I am grateful that He allowed me to live to continue to raise my 11 children, who need me to help guide their souls and navigate through the End of These Times.

KH

A.
First of all - Thank you! for sharing with all this harrowing experience, an experience which immediately brought to mind the following Biblical verse:

I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from evil. [John 17:15]

immediately followed by....

He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob. He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: my God, in him will I trust. [Psalm 91:1-2]

Since the required conditions...

He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me.  He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it. He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.

He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive the reward of a prophet: and he that receiveth a just man in the name of a just man, shall receive the reward of a just man.  And whosoever shall give to drink to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. [Matt.10:37-42]

....are met in your life, and you have eleven of His children to raise and home-school, you must have a swarm of angels watching over you and yours.

You state: "
my family is undergoing severe spiritual warfare" - which is coherent with all else since satan would not waste time on a family who has not made God its center.

Regarding the size of your family - eleven children! - we want to take this opportunity to point out, as we did to the world press in 1993 (4), that the problem is not an increasing number of world inhabitants; the problem is non-Evangelized world inhabitants. As John Bosco (5) proved beyond the shadow of a doubt, a family
- as his was - with thousands of children who are well Evangelized could be viewed as a factory of upright and just citizens who can live in productive harmony. This was amply proven when the most radical anticlerical Italian Minister of the 19th century, Minister Rattazzi, was more helpful to John Bosco in establishing his congregation, The Salesians, than the Roman Curia was!

We have the feeling that there are more government officials like Minister Rattazzi in Heaven than members of the Roman Catholic Hierarchy....
 
Once again, thank you for sharing with all and may He continue to cover you with His feathers, because under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart and  may He command His angels ... to guard you in all your ways; may they lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

Posted on June 26th, 2011 [Feast of Corpus Christi (in some Dioceses)]

Did you know that.... Jesus the Christ was not Christian, if we associate "being Christian" with the way most who call themselves Christians live their faith?

Think about it (1) carefully, because no one knows when the symbolic SUV (2) may show up in your future.

___________________
(1) Think about it!
(2) About the SUV symbolism



It was after we had.... composed the above (Divine Encouragement (1) included) that we offered the Mass for the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time (2). Then we saw the Gospel reading for the day:

[37] He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. [38] And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. [39] He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it. [40] He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.

[41] He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive the reward of a prophet: and he that receiveth a just man in the name of a just man, shall receive the reward of a just man. [42] And whosoever shall give to drink to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. [Matt.10:37-42]

Anyone who has Eyes to See and Ears to Hear should readily recognize Who was really speaking such harsh words, for we could not have concocted this complex composition on our own.

For those who believe that we manipulated the information so that all matched up nicely, we would not want them to believe otherwise "....lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them." [Mark 4:12]

Did you know that.... as of now the national debt of Greece stands at 43,200 US Dollars per capita? (1)

Because of such debt the country, in spite of an earlier financial "transfusion" and another one being negotiated now, is still expected to go into default. This scenario would severely impact the two key Eurozone economies - German and French - since they hold sizable portions of the Greek debt. This in turn would possibly trigger the financial collapse of the Eurozone.

The non-Eurozone reader may say: Who cares? Why are you wasting valuable time on something that is essentially irrelevant to the rest of the world, most specially the US?

The reason is quite simple.  The US national debt stands at 43,400 US Dollars per capita (2) - just 200 US Dollars higher than the Greek debt.

The only relatively good news is that the yearly per capita income (3) in the US is 47,284 US Dollars and in Greece it is 28,434 US Dollars, which means that the average US worker has to labor 0.9178 of a year to pay his share of the national debt while the average Greek worker has to labor 1.5193 years to pay his share of the national debt.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: The "crash" is just around the corner.... but that should not be a surprise to our regular readers; that is part of "The Plan". (4)

From (Mr.) WO @ US

Your latest document about Garabandal (1) brought the following memories to the surface....

When I was a little child in the 4th Grade in a Catholic school (c.1966) my mother had received some literature on Garabandal. From memory, it was a very well written brochure of 4 pages, on standard 8.5" x 11" paper. I may still  have it somewhere here; yet I cannot recall who (or what) printed it. The brochure had been placed in the back of the church with other devotional pamphlets, etc.

It covered the major points of what Mary said to the seers, with the urgency of the message, warning of dire consequences for humanity, due to the failures of the clergy.

My mother, who was still religious at that time, suggested that I should bring it to school to show to my teacher, in light of the seriousness of what Mary was saying.

So I brought it to my teacher. Not only did she refuse to share it with the class, but literally turned into a 'monster' in her reaction. She was red-faced and screaming at me, for daring to bring in something "not approved by the Church". She was shouting at and humiliating me in front of the class.

As I had approached her politely - approaching her desk, showing her the brochure, and explaining what it was - her reaction was totally out of line. It was as if a switch was flipped in her psyche; like Dr. Jekyll turning into Mr. Hyde.

From that moment until I graduated school, this teacher took every possible opportunity to try to yell at me or try to get me into trouble. Her level of seeming vindictiveness was amazing. But for ....what?

Many years later it dawned upon me that she had barely even looked at the brochure - except to note that it was about Garabandal. I also realized two other possibilities:

a) she may have been linked to Opus Dei (or one of their various front operations).
b) I was 'anathema to her in the same manner that I was to Fulton Sheen.

A. Thank you for sharing your experience.

The reaction you experienced would have been the same as if a little boy, back in the First Century Judea, had gone to his synagogue leader and told him that "there was a man by the name of Jesus who was healing birth defects and bringing to life decomposing corpses".

Absolutely nothing has changed, except this time God, through Mary, has said Enough! (2)  He will follow through, in a far more dramatic manner than what many know as Noah's Flood.

Did you know that....
one of the possible consequences of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner’s Twitter-gate affair is another decline in the number of Jewish representatives in Congress? (1)

The massive overrepresentation of Jews on Capitol Hill, long a source of pride for the community, has been shrinking in recent years. It could drop in the coming election cycle from 41 to the mid 30s, a level last seen 15 years ago.

Analysts differ over whether this reduction heralds a significant decline in Jewish power or, instead, simply reflects short-term individual circumstances.


The M+G+R Foundation comments:
We are not surprised at this decline, as the "Opus Power" continues to increase in Washington, DC, to the point of essentially controlling the US Supreme Court. (2) (3)

Furthermore …

At this time, Mrs. Christine Legarde is the most likely replacement to the disgraced Mr. Dominique Strauss-Kahn (who is Jewish) as head of the all-powerful International Monetary Fund (IMF). If, as we suspect, she is "heavily influenced" by Opus Dei (if not an outright "card carrying" member), the remaining Jews in positions of power have their days in office numbered. That would indeed be something to worry about..... if there were enough time ahead of us.... which is not the case.

Have you heard that.... in Sept. 1859, on the eve of a below-average solar cycle, the sun unleashed one of the most powerful storms in centuries?
[our highlights]

The underlying flare was so unusual, researchers still aren't sure how to categorize it.  The blast peppered Earth with the most energetic protons in half-a-millennium, induced electrical currents that set telegraph offices on fire, and sparked Northern Lights over Cuba and Hawaii.

This week, officials have gathered at the National Press Club in Washington DC to ask themselves a simple question: What if it happens again?

"A similar storm today might knock us for a loop," says Lika Guhathakurta, a solar physicist at NASA headquarters. "Modern society depends on high-tech systems such as smart power grids, GPS, and satellite communications--all of which are vulnerable to solar storms."

She and more than a hundred others are attending the fifth annual Space Weather Enterprise Forum - "SWEF" for short.  The purpose of SWEF is to raise awareness of space weather and its effects on society especially among policy makers and emergency responders.  Attendees come from the US Congress, FEMA, power companies, the United Nations, NASA, NOAA and more.

As 2011 unfolds, the sun is once again on the eve of a below-average solar cycle - at least that’s what forecasters are saying.  The "Carrington event" of 1859 (named after astronomer Richard Carrington, who witnessed the instigating flare) reminds us that strong storms can occur even when the underlying cycle is nominally weak.  


The M+G+R Foundation comments:
The sooner mankind acknowledges the fact that the fate of humanity is in the Hands of God, and all that scientists can do is wring their hands, the level of pain that awaits the world will be reduced. That is the only option in our hands - nothing more.

This is how Opus Dei..... recruits the proverbial man on the street.

To get the details, read an interview with the director of the Catholic Information Center on K Street in downtown Washington, DC. The Catholic Information Center is one of more than 60 centers in or near 19 cities in the United States (including Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York) which have been entrusted to Opus Dei.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: They are certainly covering all bases.

There seems to be.... another "coincidence" regarding the date "June 26th". (1)

A reader shared with us the following:

At Mass last Sunday, we were given advance notice that there will be a second collection on June 26th: Peter's Pence. It turns out that this is a recurring event, which "happens" to be on June 26th this year.
  
About Peter's Pence (2):
[our highlights]

In 1871 Pope Pius IX formalized the practice of lay members of the Roman Catholic Church - and "other persons of good will" - to provide financial support to the Roman See. While the regular tithe goes to the local parish or diocese, the Peter's Pence goes directly to Rome. Pius IX gave it his approval in the Encyclical Letter Saepe Venerabilis (5 August 1871). The money collected is today used by the Pope for philanthropic purposes.

At present this collection is taken each year on the Sunday closest to June 29, the Solemnity of both Saint Peter and Saint Paul, according to the Roman Church. According to the report, in 2007, donations amounted to $79,837,843. In 2006 it was $101,900,192. United States was the biggest donor, giving some 28% of the total. It was followed by Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Ireland, Brazil and South Korea.

In 2008, donations totaled $75.8 million. And it was up in 2009, with Catholics donating $82,529,417.


The M+G+R Foundation comments:
Seventy to eighty million dollars per year for the alleged Papal "philanthropic purposes" is not bad at all. It certainly would be interesting to know which "philanthropic projects" are in the receiving end of such yearly bounty.

Posted on June 23rd, 2011 [Feast of Corpus Christi]

From miguel de Portugal

As we celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi - the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in a properly consecrated host, there are three areas we wish to highlight for our readers.

(a) The Real Presence of Jesus Christ in a consecrated host is indeed Real, but some conditions do apply, in order that simple, unleavened bread and wine, can be turned into the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

In the days of fake name brand watches and handbags (not mention make-believe Popes (1) and Saints of convenience (2)) it is prudent to understand how the Transubstantiation (3) takes place.

(b) In these days when every news report ends or starts with reports of the endemic fighting by Christians and Jews against Muslims, we should remember that this was caused by the lack of faith Abraham had in God. Yes, the man who is honored as the "Father of Faith" is the one who, by listening to his wife, Sarai, unleashed what we know as the endemic Christian/Jewish-Muslim confrontation.

[1] Now Sarai the wife of Abram, had brought forth no children; but having a handmaid, an Egyptian, named Agar, [2] She said to her husband: Behold, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: go in unto my handmaid, it may be I may have children of her at least. And when he agreed to her request, [3] She took Agar the Egyptian her handmaid,... and gave her to her husband to wife. (and she conceived a child)

[6] .... And when Sarai afflicted her, she (Agar) ran away. [7] And the angel of the Lord having found her, ... (and the angel of the Lord) said to her....[10] ....I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, and it shall not be numbered for multitude.

[11] And again: Behold, said he, thou art with child, and thou shalt bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Ismael, because the Lord hath heard thy affliction. [12] He shall be a wild man: his hand will be against all men, and all men's hands against him: and he shall pitch his tents over against all his brethren. [Genesis 16]

Actually, it could have been worse if we consider what happened when Adam listened to his wife and defied God.

(c) The politically convenient Saints (2) produced by Rome were denounced by Jesus Christ almost 2,000 years ago. Do not take our word for it - take His.

[21] Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. [22] Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? [23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. [24] Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock, [25] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock. [Matt. 6]

Once again we underscore the fact that only those who strive, with every breath, to do the Will of the Father (4) - heareth these my words, and doth them - will be assured that his/her "house" is totally secure, for the Rock upon which it is built is the Word of God, Jesus the Christ.  Do not go to a flea market and buy a LV(5) handbag and expect it to be legitimate. Likewise, do not expect to build your "house" on a make-believe "Rock" and expect it to survive (with you inside) into Eternity.

May each and every one of you have a truly Blessed Feast of  Corpus Christi.

 Have you noticed the harmony of your responses to the May 23 post of "IW" with the June 16 post of "LP"?

May 23 post from "IW"

Consider that Ratzinger was elected on April 19, 2005       

If we add 2,300 days - see Daniel 8:14 ("For two thousand and three hundred evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be restored to its rightful state") - The result is August 6, 2011.     

I have no idea whether Daniel 8:14 refers to 2,300 actual full days, or whether it refers to 1,150 days (each with a morning and an evening).

If the AntiChrist's (1) reign ends in 2011, we will have been spared the often-dreaded full 7 years of his "leadership"; the days will have been shortened.

Is this a possible date for the end of the reign of the AntiChrist?

A.
In keeping with our no-date prediction policy, our response must be "No Comment". Nonetheless, it is interesting to note the Religious/Devotional/Historical dates of August 2011 (2).

AUGUST - 2011

5th   First Friday of the Month and Feast of Our Lady of Snows - Dedication of St. Mary Major Basilica - Rome

6th   Transfiguration of Our Lord, First Saturday of the Month and Anniversary of the Nuclear Devastation in Hiroshima, Japan

Surely just a mere coincidence.

June 16 post from "LP"

Have you noticed that on this year, the Eve of the Feast of Transfiguration and the Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, August 5th, is exactly forty days after the celebration of  the Body of Christ on  June 26th?

As you know, the Feast of the Body of Christ was traditionally celebrated in the Latin Church on the Thursday (June 23rd for 2011) after Trinity Sunday (June 19 for 2011) to solemnly commemorate the institution of the Holy Eucharist.

However, for the convenience of the Faithful and the clergy, regardless of any possible offense to God, the Feast of the Body of Christ has been moved to the Sunday following Trinity Sunday. Therefore, this year, the Feast of the Body of Christ is observed on June 26th.

As a matter of interest - June 26th is also the anniversary of Escriva's death in 1975, and the anniversary of the death of the Roman Emperor Julian the Apostate in 363. Julian tried to re-establish Roman paganism, and attempted to rebuild the Jewish Temple.

Surely a coincidence....

Did you know that... the longest lunar eclipse in more than a decade turned the moon blood red, yielding a rare visual treat for stargazers across a large swathe of the planet from Australia to Europe? (1)

The first eclipse of the year -- when the Earth casts its shadow over the moon -- was seen in parts of Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

Often the moon turns brown in an eclipse but this time it became a reddish, coppery colour.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: There is simply nothing else that God can do, besides what He has already done in recent times, to get the attention of the deaf and blind amongst the Elect besides increasing the volume of the megaphone (2) to an almost ear-splitting level. So be it!

In the meantime we shall continue to blow the "Trumpets of Warning" (3) until such time when God stops even that.

Did you notice that.... June started with a proverbial astronomical bang? - A Rare Eclipse of the Midnight Sun (1)

"It might sound like a contradiction to have a solar eclipse in the middle of the night, but this is what we will see in northern Norway, Sweden and Finland on June 1st," says Knut Joergen Roed Oedegaard, an astrophysicist at the Norwegian Centre for Science Education in Oslo.

At this time of year, he explains, the sun doesn't set in Arctic parts of the world, so a solar eclipse is theoretically possible at all hours of the day. When the clock strikes local midnight in northern Norway at the end of June 1st, about half of the lingering sun will be covered by the Moon.

The fact that this eclipse is partial rather than total will not diminish its beauty. On the contrary, it could be spectacular. At midnight in Norway, the bloated golden disk of the sun will be hanging low in the north. Imagine that (sun) disk transformed into a crescent, surrounded by the red and orange hues of a sunset sky.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: This event sounds as contradictory as the proverbial "When hell freezes over".

More chatter from Heaven?

A. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to highlight all of the above to our other readers.

We take this opportunity to point out to our readers that we do not go back "to see what we published before" so that the new post harmonizes with it. That is God's function, not ours. We just transmit what He Wills and when He Wills it. The credit is all His.

This principle also applies to the contents of the Divine Encouragement, which often are very coherent with what appears on the FYI&R page - without any merit of our own.

Did you know that... according to an expert panel of scientists, the oceans are in a worse state than previously suspected? (1)

The panel was convened by the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO), and brought together experts from different disciplines, including coral reef ecologists, toxicologists, and fisheries scientists.

In a new report, they warn that ocean life is "at high risk of entering a phase of extinction of marine species unprecedented in human history". They conclude that issues such as over-fishing, pollution and climate change are acting together in ways that have not previously been recognised.

The impacts, they say, are already affecting humanity.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: As with everything else: by the time the zombie-like world leaders realize that "this is a problem", it will be irreversible. In any event, at this stage of history, it is a completely moot point.  We just highlight it as just another "on schedule" reference point for our readers.

Have you heard that... a new report says Japan's tsunami-ravaged nuclear plant was so unprepared for the disaster that workers had to bring protective gear and an emergency manual from distant buildings and borrow equipment from a contractor? (1)

The report, released Saturday by plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co., is based on interviews of workers and plant data. It portrays chaos amid the desperate and ultimately unsuccessful battle to protect the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant from meltdown, and shows that workers struggled with unfamiliar equipment and fear of radiation exposure.

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami destroyed the plant's power and crucial cooling systems, causing three reactor cores to melt and causing several explosions.

The report revealed insufficient preparations at the plant that TEPCO hadn't previously acknowledged. It said plant workers had a disaster drill just a week before the tsunami and "everyone was familiar with emergency exits," but it apparently did not help them cope with the crisis.

When the Unit 1 reactor lost cooling functions two hours after the quake, workers tried to pump in fresh water through a fire pump, but it was broken.

A fire engine at the plant couldn't reach the unit because the tsunami left a huge tank blocking the driveway. Workers destroyed a power-operated gate to bring in the engine that arrived at the unit hours later. It was early morning when they finally started pumping water into the reactor — but the core had already melted by then.

They eventually ran out of fresh water and had to switch to sea water, which meant scrapping the reactor.

 miguel de Portugal comments: Drawing on years of experience in designing, operating and troubleshooting chemical facilities (which had the capacity - if something unexpected went wrong - to wipe out a city) I am shocked at the ineptitude - outright stupidity - of the design and operating engineers at that nuclear complex. Junior engineers and technicians under my direction had more sense and planning ability than those Japanese engineers seem to have had!

But then again, we have just read that.....

Federal regulators have been working closely with the nuclear power industry to keep the nation's aging reactors operating within safety standards by repeatedly weakening those standards, or simply failing to enforce them, an investigation by The Associated Press has found. (2)

Time after time, officials at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission have decided that original regulations were too strict, arguing that safety margins could be eased without peril, according to records and interviews.

Examples abound. When valves leaked, more leakage was allowed — up to 20 times the original limit. When rampant cracking caused radioactive leaks from steam generator tubing, an easier test of the tubes was devised, so plants could meet standards.


The M+G+R Foundation comments: The only positive that we can take from the above (and from the many, many other similar situations) is that it makes very clear - and fully understandable -  why God’s only option now is to visit humanity with a cataclysm greater than what we know as Noah’s Flood.

We Praise and Thank Him for that - otherwise, humanity would completely destroy itself without remedy or recourse.

An event edited out....
of most of the Garabandal literature has to do with the "Night of the Screams".

There were two nights - June 19th and 20th in the year 1962 - when the girls had truly horrific visions of what is to come. Details of those two nights may be found in "Garabandal - el pueblo habla," by Ramón Pérez - a book that we consider the most comprehensive and reliable book on Garabandal. (However, this has been edited out of the English version, titled "Garabandal - the villagers speak," which was published by Lomagino's group).

We will translate from the Spanish version (1) (2) the items of interest:

When they came out of those terrible visions, Loli and Jacinta prepared and signed the following text, which they date on the 19th (two days before the Feast of Corpus Christi in 1962), and through which they try to transmit to those present the essence of what they have seen or understood:

The Virgin told us that we should not wait for the Chastisement, because it will come without being expected because the world has not changed and She has told us so twice, and we do not pay attention to Her, since the world is worse. The world should change much and it has not changed at all. Prepare yourselves, confess, the Chastisement will come soon, and the world does not change. I say: the world is always the same, it is a shame that it does not change.  If it does not change, a great Chastisement will come soon.

We have not changed the punctuation or the grammatical structure.

The above should be digested in conjunction with the final message of the Virgin Mary and delivered through Michael the Archangel on
June 18th, 1965. To wit:

As my message of October 18 (1961) has not been complied with and has not been made known to the world, I am advising you that this is the last one. Before, the cup was filling up. Now it is flowing over. Many cardinals, many bishops and many priests are on the road to perdition and are taking many souls with them. Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts. If you ask His forgiveness with sincere hearts, He will pardon you. I, your mother, through the intercession (intervention) of St. Michael the Archangel, ask you to amend your lives. You are now receiving the last warnings. I love you very much and do not want your condemnation. Pray to Us with sincerity and We will grant your requests. You should make more sacrifices. Think about the passion of Jesus.

Anyone with a shred of objectivity will admit that if the cup was "flowing over." in 1965, in the year 2011, the cup, the table, the house and the neighborhood have been washed away in the spiritual filth humanity continues to emit.

Get your spiritual house in order now, for you will not have much longer to wait before we start living - on a global scale - what those little angels lived through on the nights of  June 19 and 20, 1962, and which miguel de Portugal has warned you of before.

More on Garabandal at a later time.

The Church Vs the Poor

My personal observation over the past 35 years of dealing with hundreds of churches in a professional capacity confirms yours: The Church gives mere lip service to the Gospel.

With my own eyes I have seen poor people who come the door of local churches asking for food, desperately needed money, or other help:

- Have the door slammed in their face

- Be cursed at in the most foul language by priests or their loyal employees

- Be given - not food, $$, clothing, or help - but rather a sheet of paper with the addresses of social service agencies.

- Be told 'Father is not in/busy/eating/in a meeting' when a poor soul in obvious distress needs counsel and Confession.

- Homeless persons sleeping on the steps of rectories being walked over by Diocesan officials.
 
- Destitute, homeless persons being physically roughed up and thrown out the front of a church by a priest, while pleading for help.

- Priests who, after turning away the poor and homeless, and refusing to help them, were laughing and joking about it, and making fun of them.

In the New York City area during the worst of the Homeless crisis (1) of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, I am not aware of one single Catholic church which opened its doors to the homeless at night.

Homeless were forbidden to sleep in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral; the police would arrest/evict them daily. If they were found inside seeking refuge from the cold in the pews, the same treatment resulted. Just up the street were an Episcopalian and Presbyterian church. Both had very affluent congregations. They allowed the homeless to sleep on their front steps -  to the extent of fighting with the (largely Catholic) police to prevent them from being rounded up!

While the most famous Catholic cathedral in the Western Hemisphere (2) spat upon Jesus in the person of the poor and homeless, the Protestant churches cared for Him They were bringing hot soup and meals to the poor, and opening up their facilities for them to sleep inside. They still do this, as far as I know.
So much for the "sainthood cause" of Cardinal Terence Cooke (1968-83) (3); and so much for Cardinal O'Connor's episcopal motto:

"There can be no love without justice". (4)

Having met both of them in person, the most charitable thing I can say of the latter is that his motto was the devil's own joke.

A. Thank you for sharing more of your experiences in this area.

We saw many similar situations in the Houston area, even though we consider the Bishop at the time one of the few good ones. He worked wonders there, even though the Houston-Galveston Diocese was a very complicated one.



Did you know that....the latest possible date for Trinity Sunday is 20 June – which will occur again in 2038, on the present calendar? (1)

This year - 2011 - we have just experienced the next to the latest possible date for Trinity Sunday (June 19).

The present age will have ended long before Trinity Sunday falls this late – or later – on the calendar again.

Thanks be to God!

As you may see in the upper right hand area of the Current FYI&R Post page, we have installed a window to the worldwide Internet Traffic Report.

The Internet Traffic Report monitors the flow of data around the world. It then displays a value between zero and 100. Higher values indicate faster and more reliable connections. The Index shown is the global average updated every 5 minutes.  If you Click on it you will be transferred away from our pages and into the Internet Traffic Report main page, where you can see the most recent traffic index for five areas of the world: North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia, as well as the trend for the last 24 hours.

Why is this important enough for us to make it available now? The truth is that it is not really important "now", but it will become very important as the Internet starts erratically faltering in different areas of the world as we march deeper into the End of These Times (and the associated sequence of events).


From miguel de Portugal

Back in his time, in his Retractations, Augustine spoke of his fifteen-book work on the Most Holy Trinity, in the following terms:

"I spent some years in writing fifteen books concerning the Trinity, which is God....  etc. etc.

In our time, God, in an instantaneous flash, revealed to me the Secret Concept of the Most Holy Trinity, which makes it crystal clear even to Muslims.

Think about it - Fifteen Books (1), and Augustine, still could not explain it, vs. two printed pages (2) with information downloaded from Heaven in less than an instant.

True wisdom is not learned with books; true wisdom is dispensed only by God when and to whom He wills it.

That is why we continue to remind one and all that there is nothing more important in the entire Universe (literally!) than establishing a close relationship with God. Then, all that you need and desire will be granted by God.

Remember....

[31] Be not solicitous therefore, saying, What shall we eat: or what shall we drink, or wherewith shall we be clothed? [32] For after all these things do the heathens seek. For your Father knoweth that you have need of all these things. [33] Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.   [Matthew 6]

As we have said many times before: It is that simple.

It is always our choice - God or mammon; and remember: no matter how well mammon is "enveloped with piety and decorated fancy words", it still is mammon, and God can spot it the proverbial mile away.

Today's Gospel reading..... is among the most ignored, yet valuable teachings of the Gospel. It is a shame that man refuses to believe it.

In this beautiful Gospel we read:

 [21] For where thy treasure is, there is thy heart also. [22] The light of thy body is thy eye. If thy eye be single, thy whole body shall be lightsome. [23] But if thy eye be evil thy whole body shall be darksome. If then the light that is in thee, be darkness: the darkness itself how great shall it be! [24] No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (riches, worldly interest). [25] Therefore I say to you, be not solicitous for your life, what you shall eat, nor for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than the meat: and the body more than the raiment?

[26] Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they? [27] And which of you by taking thought, can add to his stature by one cubit? [28] And for raiment why are you solicitous? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they labour not, neither do they spin. [29] But I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these. [30] And if the grass of the field, which is today, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, God doth so clothe: how much more you, O ye of little faith?

[31] Be not solicitous therefore, saying, What shall we eat: or what shall we drink, or wherewith shall we be clothed? [32] For after all these things do the heathens seek. For your Father knoweth that you have need of all these things. [33] Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you. [34] Be not therefore solicitous for tomorrow; for the morrow will be solicitous for itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof.  [Matthew 6]

The three keys to the message are: "For where thy treasure is, there is thy heart also" - "You cannot serve God and mammon (riches, worldly interest)." - "Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice."

It is this simple: If for everything we think and do, we would place God first - which certainly includes His teachings - ALL would turn out in the best possible way regardless of any circumstance.

If we are worrying about riches and worldly interests (1), our heart is right there  "with the riches and worldly interests" and not with God. In such circumstances the results will always be a catastrophic failure, just like the Evangelization was, and just as all the "pipe dreams" of Opus Dei (2) will be.

Sadly enough, that is the only way that man is capable of learning and, this time, Blessedly, it will be an unforgettable lesson.

Have you noticed that...

(a) While the visionaries of Marian apparitions of worldwide scope such as Fatima (1) and Garabandal (2) had been silenced for years by the Ecclesiastical authorities, or had been ridiculed as Melanie of La Salette was (because she just would not remain silent (3)), the alleged visionaries of Medjugorje (4a) have a free hand to travel the world talking about the alleged apparitions in Medjugorje?

(b) While the sites of major worldwide Marian apparitions were devoid of any significant church and/or chapel and/or major Christian symbols at the time that the apparitions began, Medjugorje was conveniently set up in advance. There was already a church several times the size necessary for the sparse population of the area, and there was already a very large cross on top of Mount Krizevac, a perfect rallying point for Pilgrims, by the time the alleged apparitions started? (The current building for the Parish of St. James was completed and blessed in January 1969, during Communist rule in Yugoslavia; the cross on Mount Krizevac was built in 1933-1934, before World War II. (4b) )

(c) In spite of the negative position held by the local Bishops towards the alleged apparitions, Medjugorje has become "the unofficial darling" of an Opus Dei-run Vatican?  This went to the extent of having a very high profile Cardinal (Christoph Schönborn) making a very public visit to the place (5) in spite of the local ordinary's disapproval. Such a visit is something unheard of in Roman Catholic Church protocol.

(d) The alleged apparitions commenced (June 24, 1981 - Celebration of the birth of John the Baptist) exactly forty-two days after the assassination attempt against John Paul II (May 13, 1981 - Anniversary of first apparition in Fatima (6))?

We suggest that the Faithful begin to ponder the about the points highlighted above very, very carefully.

A. More Heavenly chatter for those who have Eyes to see, and Ears to Hear.


Now that our frequently surprised scientists....
have announced the possibility of another unexpected impending Little Ice Age (1), we wish to remind our readers of two entries which appear in one of our documents (2):

** On page 45 of March 1995 issue of ASTRONOMY magazine there is an article by Robert Zimmerman entitled: POLARIS, the Code-Blue Star : The North Star's variable heart pulsed regularly for over a century, until it mysteriously stopped beating last year

This is the famous North Star which "...since the beginning of written history..." has remained in the same position as viewed from "...the Northern Hemisphere and so has come to represent faithfulness, dependability, and constancy in most cultures."

Another "mystery" which is full of symbolism to mankind. The one "unchangeable" astronomic land mark to all mankind has "mysteriously" changed.... Like a Beating Heart which has stopped Beating....


** On a NASA Public Release dated 1-Aug-2002 we read: Satellites reveal a mystery of large change in earth's gravity field. After a page of scientific speculation the conclusion is that they really do not know (or do not want to acknowledge) what the real source is.

We have mirrored the Press Release (3) in our host computers in case the original News Release vanishes into thin air as many recent space related articles seem to do.


The M+G+R Foundation comments:
These type of major changes, which have been unexpected and unexplained by science, started a long time ago.

Have you heard that.... the public website of the Central Intelligence Agency went down on Wednesday evening? (1)
[our highlights]

The hacker group Lulz Security said it had launched the attack.

The CIA site initially could not be accessed from New York to San Francisco, and Bangalore to London. Later in the evening service was sporadic.
"We are looking into these reports," a CIA spokeswoman said.

Lulz Security has defaced websites, posted personal information about customers and site administrators, and disclosed the network configurations of some sites.

Security analysts have downplayed the significance of these attacks, saying the hackers are just looking to show off and get as much attention as possible.


The M+G+R Foundation comments: The level of "security" of our top "security" agency and the "expertise" of  the "analysts" leave us speechless, even though it is "on schedule". This is the only way we can comment without being uncharitable.

Change is indeed knocking.... at our doors....
[our underscoring]

According to three studies released in the United States on Tuesday, experts believe the familiar sunspot cycle may be shutting down and heading toward a pattern of inactivity unseen since the 17th century.

"This is highly unusual and unexpected," said Frank Hill, associate director of the NSO's Solar Synoptic Network, as the findings of the three studies were presented at the annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society's Solar Physics Division in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

"But the fact that three completely different views of the Sun point in the same direction is a powerful indicator that the sunspot cycle may be going into hibernation."

Solar activity tends to rise and fall every 11 years or so. The solar maximum and solar minimum each mark about half the interval of the magnetic pole reversal on the Sun, which happens every 22 years.

Hill said the current cycle, number 24, "may be the last normal one for some time and the next one, cycle 25, may not happen for some time.

"This is important because the solar cycle causes space weather which affects modern technology and may contribute to climate change," he told reporters.

Experts are now probing whether this period of inactivity could be a second Maunder Minimum, which was a 70-year period when hardly any sunspots were observed between 1645-1715, a period known as the "Little Ice Age." (2)

Did you hear that... the story about an American-Syrian lesbian, which "gripped the world" via all those new social-networking disinformation tools, was indeed a hoax? (1)

Six days after a post on the blog A Gay Girl in Damascus triggered panic among its readers by suggesting that the blog's author, who claimed to be a Syrian-American lesbian caught up in the protest movement, had been detained in the Syrian capital, a new entry appeared on Sunday that described the entire online diary as a work of fiction by an American man.

He got the idea to start a blog in the guise of his character, he said, when a Web site called Lez Get Real published two long comments about Syria that he had submitted in Amina's name in February. That Web site published a long apology on Friday, explaining that its editors had helped to start the Gay Girl in Damascus blog. In the comment thread beneath that apology, one of the editors of the site explained that the blogger's 135 contributions to Lez Get Real in recent months had all seemed to come from computers located in Scotland, not Syria. Mr. MacMaster moved to Scotland from the U.S. last year to study history.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: We cannot emphasize strongly enough the need to be very watchful as to what one believes - especially regarding matters that will influence your faith and world view, consciously or unconsciously.

Two days ago, there was a claim that McDonald's was surcharging African Americans (2) who came in to any of their stores for security reasons.

Do not forget that a major daily paper in Portugal (a small media outlet by world standards) even fooled NASA into changing flight schedules. (3) Our readers should consider this a training period on how to better interact with the Holy Spirit of God. Otherwise, they will fall for the Last Snare and accept the False Christ as the real Saviour.

It looks like.... we have come across an Opus Dei version of a female religious group.  (1)
[our underscoring]

María José Berzosa was 18 years old when she decided to leave her studies in medicine to enter a cloistered life with the Clarissa nuns at a convent in Lerma, Burgos, an order which is devoted to prayer, penance and contemplation and is seen as one of the most austere orders of the Roman Catholic Church. She was the first novice to enter the convent for 23 years.

She took the name of Sor Verónica and later became novice mistress and, by the time Sor Verónica became mother superior of the St Clare convent, while other Clarissa convents in Spain had not taken in any new novices for many years, the community had grown to such an extent that it had taken over the San Pedro Regalado Franciscan monastery in La Aguilera and had more than 180 nuns.

This vocational boom has been described as 'the miracle of Lerma'. Two other Clarissa convents are meanwhile now empty of nuns and are to be sold to the state to be converted into Paradors.

On February 12, 2011, at the age of 44, Sor Verónica became the leader of a new congregation, when the Clarissa nuns of Lerma became members of the order which was founded by Sor Verónica - the religious institute 'Jesu Communio'.

The institute was approved by Benedict XVI in December 2010, and the Vatican's representative in Spain, the Papal Nuncio, Renzo Fratini, was at the Cathedral in Burgos on Saturday afternoon to witness the birth of the new religious institute when the 181 former Clarissa nuns reaffirmed their vows.

Many of them gave up their university studies to enter the cloistered life and, with the exception of Sor Verónica, none is over the age of 40. Generally brought up in cities and from middle class families, they are seen as followers of the new evangelisation called for by Pope John Paul II. Público reports that many belong to neo-conservative groups such as the Neocatechumenal Way, Communion and Liberation, and Opus Dei.

The youth of the new order is reflected in the denim fabric which has been chosen for their habit.

The ceremony was presided by the Archbishop of Burgos, Francisco Gil Hellín, with the Archbishop of Pamplona, Francisco Pérez, and the Bishop of Ciudad Rodrigo, Raúl Berzosa, who is the brother of Sor Verónica. The President of the Spanish Episcopal Conference, Antonio María Rouco Varela, was also there to witness the event.


The M+G+R Foundation comments: After reviewing several articles from her native country (in Spanish), we have no doubt that indeed she has "mothered" the Opus Dei version of female religious group - pious arrogance included.

Her brother, a very young and intellectual Spanish Bishop, is very Opus Dei friendly, if not a full-fledged member himself.´

The above information is shared with our readers as a matter of interest and nothing else. The "wheels are already turning", their function is well defined, and those who read our pages should have been warned years ago about them.

Notes

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

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

(3) In an effort to keep our readers informed in the areas that matter most as we approach the End of These Times and better utilize the limited time available to us we will post what used to beposted on Did you know that...?Private Forum, Public Forum Part II and Points to Ponder About on this one single page - FYI&R
