Is this the beginning.... of the road to implement partial or total Martial Law (1) in the US?

As the partial federal government shutdown entered its seventh day, President Donald Trump threatened on Friday to close the nation's southern border if Congress doesn't fund his border wall.

"We build the wall or... close the southern border," Trump tweeted. (2) (3)

Comments: That is going to happen sooner or later, with most everyone doing all in their power to push Mr. Trump to invoke Martial Law (1).

We are not losing any sleep over it since we take the same "medicine" we prescribe to all: Focus on the Will of God; strive to live His Word; and share it with all.

Remember...

...seek ye first the kingdom of God and his justice, and all these things (the things that we may/will need) shall be added unto you.
[Luke 12:31]

Yes; it is that simple!

From miguel de Portugal

On the year 2003 we prepared a document where we showed that Judaism, Christianity and Islam are not incoherent amongst themselves. We showed that, on the contrary, there is great coherence amongst them!

In the spirit of reconciliation we sent a copy of the document to the United Nations and to the White House. This is what the United Nations responded and what the Bush White House responded.

At least they responded... since no leader from Judaism, Christianity or Islam even acknowledged report. This is one of the reasons we keep repeating that all have been warned and whatever is to fall upon humanity has been "well earned" and no longer is of our concern as God has clearly made known to us.

Our sole concern is now to reach the few sheep of the New House of Israel [Christianity] which are still lost and need to find their way Home.


December 27th

From miguel de Portugal

The Good Lord gave us - you and I - a very, very special gift this Christmas which is the second part of the parable which addresses the need to build a house upon solid rock as opposed to building it upon sand. As a refresher we will reproduce below what we now consider the first part of the parable.

Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like.

They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete. [Luke 6:46-49]

Last week I had a very puzzling dream... The only part I remember is that I was looking at houses and upon a closer look at the one at hand I realized that it was built of pure (and compacted) sand - walls, ceiling, floors. etc. Whomever was showing that particular house to me was assuring me of how well built is was and how secure were the foundations.

That was all that I remember of the dream and frankly, I was puzzled. It was obvious that it had a meaning that God wanted to transmit to me but I had no idea what it was. As I have done in the past, I asked Him to explain the message and He explained it in a flash (1).

The meaning: Even when building a house using Christ's Name as its foundation (the rock), the house would collapse when "the torrent" strikes it if it is improperly built.

Explaining it in simple terms...

Imagine the finest architect and engineers designing a house that is to be built on a very sound foundation. They turn over the drawings and specifications to the construction company that is going to build it. Unfortunately the builders cannot fully understand the drawings and specifications and build it based on their understanding of said drawings and specifications.

When they are finished the house appears perfect; matching the drawings originally made. Unfortunately, the specifications were misread and/or misunderstood so that the moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete even though it was built on solid rock.

A most perfect example is provided by the Opus Dei.....

Were there an extraterrestrial and he came to visit our planet and studied the Catholic Faith, he would conclude that, without a doubt, the Opus Dei appeared to be the most correct "religious order" within the Catholic Faith. Then, the extraterrestrial would be confused when he would witness the following scene developing (because it will!):

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ [Matthew 7:21-23]

Confused until the second part of the parable we explained above was explained to said visitor....

Although we have used a group like Opus Dei as an illustrative example, the concept applies to each one of us individually.

We must ensure that the Christianity that we are living indeed is the Will of the Father and totally coherent with the fundamental and basic teachings of Jesus Christ - which are equally applicable to each one of us and which do not need Daniel to explain them nor footnotes to clarify them.

Remember, Augustine wrote 13+ books trying to explain the Most Holy Trinity and did not succeed; I did it on a page and a half because it was God Who revealed it to me; it was not the product of my (self) intellect. We must focus our attention on the Will of God, while ridding ourselves of our very fallen ego which, from birth, makes us want to be like God.

From miguel de Portugal

Some have expressed to us their concern about their length of stay in purgatory or whether they are fulfilling the Will of God. Those concerns are healthy to help us keep us focused, but unhealthy - and from satan - when they distract us from focusing on God.

Following is an example of the solution - a behavior which I lived in High School and the Universities I attended.

I have a thirst for learning and studying helped me quench that thirst. I studied just because of that - I love to learn. I did not study to get good grades. This behavior invariably resulted in very good grades which, in turn, resulted in many benefits. (1)

If in your heart you really want to fulfill the Will of God, to learn all that His Word teaches us, and to live it... He Will make sure that you do - no matter how disoriented you may feel that you are.

God Is above all - even satan must serve Him! So... if your heart thirsts for His Will and His Word, nothing - not even your own faults - will prevent it form happening to the extent that you are able to handle it at each step of the way. He Will see to that!

Believe it or not... this is how disoriented the Roman Catholic Church Hierarchical Administration is...

The recent news:

Vatican committee: Church credibility at risk over sex abuse (1)

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Organizers of an upcoming Vatican summit on sex abuse prevention are warning that the credibility of the Catholic Church is in jeopardy over the abuse scandal and are urging participants to meet with victims personally before coming to Rome.

The RCC has no credibility whatsoever in Europe and has not had it for a very long time. miguel de Portugal is speaking from "ground zero" which, in this case extends from Portugal to Poland. Even back in 1991 he realized that the faith was dead in Europe - most of the few who practice it just go through the motions or live out traditions which are completely devoid of any real faith.

What he has seen and heard on this matter could easily fill a book or two. Of course, the tourists see the Cathedrals and other remnants of the times when they actually pretended to have faith (because the faith really began to crash after Constantine bought the RCC in the 4th century) but do not realize that all of that was devoid of the Spirit of God.

Yet, the Roman Catholic Church Hierarchical Administration think that they have credibility left to lose. The only thing that they could do now - although is entirely too late - is try to restore the credibility lost over the centuries.

Oh, yes! They do have tremendous influence. And miguel has witnessed that too. Influence based on an enormous financial and infiltrated political power, but credibility? What a joke!

December 22nd

From Mrs. LM @ US

I am glad you reminded us of the following message....

Take a look at the wars that have ravaged the world (and still are) during the last 120 years - most of them preventable.

....so that I would read it.  I do sometimes miss e-mails and have to go back.

It is astonishing that so many wars are currently still happening!  I think we in the US live in a bubble.  We don't really see what is going on outside our country. ... In some countries, people have lived in war their entire lives. I cannot even imagine how they live on a daily basis.

So, I take it that this document is the new information about the RCC's responsibility for the bloodiest century of humanity, that you spoke of in The Final Look at the Third Part of the Secret of Fatima

All I can say is, we will get what we deserve.

God, have mercy on us.

LM

A. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to address this matter further.

First of all, yes indeed - As we officially denounced before the European Court of Justice and the Hague Tribunals, the controlling Hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church is fully responsible for the miseries that have visited humanity starting after Heaven ended the First World War. Most will not believe us now, but when they see what God will leave of the institution (not the Faith, but the institution), then they will believe.... but it will be too late for them.

You speak of the bubble that we live in the US.... and it brought to mind the national bubble all the Germans lived in during the first years of the war which was eventually reduced to just the Berlin bubble which finally burst when Berlin was attacked without mercy after the collapse of the rest of Germany.

The proverbial "man and woman on the street" were unaware of the scope, and methodology, of Hitler's dreams and how they were collapsing as houses of cards.

However, this bubble that we are now talking about is not exclusive for US citizens. Everyone who does not live in a war zone has been slowly ushered in that global bubble of false security so that "they buy and consume goods to an extreme". The European economy is in tatters but all one hears via the media is positive. I have seen its collapse since the 'European Union Dream' was implemented  and talk daily with people in Spain and Portugal - of all walks of life - who painfully confirm what we have witnessed since 1998.

That is just the false economic bubble...  there is also the false security bubble.... About two months ago some very sophisticated thieves broke into the safety deposit vault of the branch of a major bank in Portugal and emptied every single safety deposit box which held the valuables of the bank clients. This is unthinkable and unimaginable.... yet it happened and no one has been caught.

Morally.... it is no different. The problem is not immorality.... the problem is amorality.

We could go on for pages... yet people are made to believe that all is great and, since most live in denial, they are very happy to hear and believe such lies.

Yes, you are right - globally we will get what we deserve because, if not, even the Elect would be lost.

Yes, may God have Mercy on us because, just as Our Lady confirmed her prior warnings through Akita"...the living will envy the dead!"

We strongly suggest that during this Holy Day Season much more emphasis is given to prayer, fasting and making sacrifices than to "Shopping 'til you drop" and "Drinking and being merry" because prayer, fasting and making sacrifices are the only activities which will truly help you navigate and survive what is at our doors.

As we close this extensive response (tirade?), we wish to remind our regular readers, and inform our new readers, that we do no make up all of this to sell survival supplies or indulgences. If miguel de Portugal left behind - in response to God's call - a life which in all its aspects was a life that most mortals can only dream off to prepare the world of what was to come and what to do about it , we suggest that everyone pays close attention to what we are saying.


December 20th

From miguel de Portugal

As part of several changes that we are making at the urging of God, we will no longer monitor even the very few news that we did before. We no longer need to see the details of the road we are in nor alert our readers about it any more. We certainly know where we are heading at very high speed and our readers, by now, should too. All it does is aggravate us, thus interfere with the work at hand which is:

Fan the flames of Faith of the faithful because, without a strong faith, as Mary said in Akita, Japan, in 1973, (1) it would very difficult what we have to face.

We have reached the point where it no longer matters if people believe or not what we have been announcing on line for the last 20 years - what matters to me now is to have done - and continue to do - what God Wills we do.

If there is any world news that I need to be aware of, He will see that somehow it gets to me. That "somehow" includes each and every one of you if and when prompted by the Holy Spirit.

I cannot even begin to imagine how difficult it must be for you to be the recipient of such devastating knowledge which the Lord entrusts to you alone.  What a lonely feeling this must be. 

To know so much, yet to be limited in how much you are able to share with others.  And even if you could share, how many would even listen?   Only God truly knows.

Maybe that's why He limits what it is He desires for you to reveal to others.  So few would even pay attention, much less act upon His Directives.
 
LC

A. Thank you for your kind words.

Regarding the matter of Heavenly revelations....

What was and/or  is truly difficult is not necessarily the contents of the information, instead it: (a) is... knowing that most, due to a failed Evangelization effort, could not understand the information; (b) was... because even if some could understand it, they would not listen/care; and (c) was... because of the irremediable consequences that will fall upon those who persist on living in the state of denial.

We say "was" because as we stated in the first entry:

We have reached the point where it no longer matters if people believe or not what we have been announcing on line for the last 20 years....

We say "is" because as we also stated in the first entry:

 ....what matters to me now is that I.... will continue to do what God Wills we do.


However, when everything "is said and done", the joy resulting from the knowledge of how much suffering God has been able to mitigate through our efforts and the efforts of those who assist us, will completely obliterate any and all sadness experienced throughout the journey.


From miguel de Portugal

We are beginning to remove the links to the books that we have published from the most visited pages since some people actually believe we are just trying to make money off God - as organized religion has done since before Christ.

Considering that the sum total of the royalties received since we posted the links to the books is less than $100.00 we are certainly not risking a great loss compared to the scandal it may generate.


December 18th

miguel wishes to claim today.... the words his predecessor uttered at the time of the First Coming of Christ. They were part of last Sunday's Gospel [Luke 3:10-18]:

I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fan is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.

It is obvious that John the Baptist was speaking of both times: then and of now. The only Baptism from Jesus that has been already fulfilled is that of the Holy Spirit because, obviously, we have not experienced the Baptism of fire yet.

It should be obvious that it is only now, at the End of These Times, when He will, with... "His winnowing fan is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire."

May those who have Eyes, See, and Ears, Hear! As for the rest? They are out of our hands!



From miguel de Portugal

If you are puzzled about some of the dates in the 2019 New Judeo-Christian Liturgical Calendar and their positions in reference to the traditional dates, please review the footnotes on the New Calendar page which, for your convenience, we are reproducing below.

If you still have a question and/or doubt, please let us know and we will try to clarify it.

NOTES                       

[1a] How are the dates determined

[1b] Definition of Key Jewish Holy Days and why some are being incorporated into Christian Liturgical Celebrations by miguel de Portugal

[1c] Theo-logic behind the New Liturgical Calendar

[2]  Rosh Hashanah
Traditional Calendar: Why two days long? Since the time of the destruction of the Second Temple of Jerusalem in 70 CE and the time of Rabban Yohanan ben Zakkai, normative Jewish law appears to be that Rosh Hashanah is to be celebrated for two days, because of the difficulty of determining the date of the new moon.

[3]  The Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ
Traditional Calendar: Ascension Day is traditionally celebrated on a Thursday, the fortieth day of Easter, although some dioceses and countries (e.g. Spain) have moved the observance to the following Sunday.

[4]  Shavuot
Traditional Calendar: Shavuot is celebrated in Israel for one day and in the Diaspora (outside of Israel) for two days. Reform Judaism celebrates only one day, even in the Diaspora.

[5]  Immaculate Heart of Mary
Traditional Calendar: According to de United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, "Since the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles, is celebrated on June 29, 2019, the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary is omitted this year." (Pg. 7). In the calendar published by the Spanish Conference of Bishops, it is also omitted, but without any comment.

[6]  Anniversary of the Miracle at Fatima
Traditional Calendar: The Miracle at Fatima happened on Oct 13rd but, despite its importance, the Anniversary is not observed in the official Catholic Liturgical Calenda.


December 15th

From (Mrs.) LC @ USA

As shocking as it is, the information you provided in Thursday''s post pertaining to the projected impeded Memorials of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is very much appreciated.  Your righteous indignation is palpable and so well justified.

This information very much bothered me.  There had to be something specific I could do to hinder the “unmentionables” from succeeding with their projected goal of eliminating Devotion to Our lady's Immaculate Heart.  I didn't know what to do, except to pray extra Hail Mary's to console Our Lady.

Then, I Providentially came across a Green Scapular leaflet that I had stored away some time ago.  Its full title is:  "The Green Scapular:  Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for Cures and Conversions."   

The nudges to make you aware of the information contained in this leaflet have been relentless ever since I came across it last Thursday.  I can no more delay in doing this.  The title is as noted above and the full contents follow:

The Green Scapular or “badge” is one of the most famous scapulars, which enjoys privileges similar to the Brown Scapular of Mt. Carmel.  Those who die wearing this garment will not suffer eternal fire.  It will not keep you from Purgatory, if you still have repentance to do. 

Great gifts of the Green Scapular are for cures and conversions.  The scapular may be worn about the neck, or hung in the person's room, or placed under the pillow, or kept in a wallet, or placed in one's clothing.  The CONFIDENCE of the person giving the garment of Mary, is MOST IMPORTANT for quicker conversions.

There is no investiture for this scapular.  It must be blessed by a Priest, and someone MUST SAY the following prayer as often as possible, at least once daily:  “IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, PRAY FOR US NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH.”  This prayer is printed on the back of the scapular.

The Green Scapular has been known for some time.  Countless miracles of conversion have been attributed to it.  It is second only to the Brown Scapular of Mt. Carmel in popularity.  All those who have experienced the power of the Immaculate Heart of Mary through the Green Scapular, have come to love and respect this scapular.

“Yes,” the Blessed Virgin Mary promised Sister Justine,  “If it be given with confidence, there will be a great number of conversions.”

The story of the Green Scapular has been shrouded in mystery.  However, it is to OUR AGE that it was revealed to bring back souls to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Those who die wearing this Sacramental will escape the eternal flames.

A first manifestation of the Immaculate Heart had already been given to St. Catherine Laboure, in the Chapel of the Motherhouse of the Daughters of Charity on November 27, 1830, in Paris, France.  It was to Sister Catherine that Mary gave the Miraculous Medal.  On the reverse side of this medal, the Immaculate Heart of Mary appears, pierced with a sword, opposite the Sacred Heart of Jesus crowned with thorns and surmounted by a cross.

Then, in the 1840’s, Mary appeared to another Daughter of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, Sister Justine Bisqueyburu.  The Blessed Virgin wished to present to us Her Immaculate Heart ALONE.  The story of the origin of the Green Scapular, and the many favors attributed to it, were kept hidden during the lifetime of this seer.  Sister Justine died on September 23, (my emphasis) 1903, and the reasons for keeping the secret no longer exist.

On January 28, 1840, Sister Justine was at prayer when the Blessed Virgin first appeared to her.  The Blessed Virgin was dressed in a long white gown which reached to Her bare feet.  Over this gown was a mantle of light blue.  She wore no veil and Her hair was hanging loosely about her.  She held Her Heart in Her hands.  Abundant flames gushed out from the top of Her Heart.  The sister was struck by the majesty and the beauty of the Blessed Virgin.

Sister Justine was favored with this same Apparition many times on the principal Feasts of the Blessed Virgin, while she was in her Sanctuary.  These apparitions seemed to have had no other purpose than to increase her devotion to Mary and Her Immaculate Heart.

On September 8, 1840, on the Feast of the Nativity of Mary, Sister Justine had a vision.  While meditating, the Mother of God appeared to her, holding Her Heart in Her right hand.  The Heart was surmounted by flames.  In Her left hand, She held the GREEN SCAPULAR.  The scapular consisted of a single green string attached to a green cloth having pictures on both sides.  It was like a medal to go around the neck.  On one side was the picture of the Blessed Virgin such as She had shown Herself in Her apparitions, and on the other side was a Heart all ablaze with rays more dazzling than the sun, as transparent as crystal.  The Heart, pierced with a sword, was encircled by an inscription of oval shape surmounted by a gold cross.  This prayer read:  “IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, PRAY FOR US NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH.”

At the time the sister saw the vision, she heard an interior voice telling her that this holy picture would contribute to the conversion of souls, and procure for them a good death;  that copies should be made as soon as possible and distributed with confidence.  The prayer had to be said every day by either the person wearing the Green Scapular or by another, for that person.  In an apparition in 1846, Sister Justine saw rays of different lengths coming from the hands of the Blessed Virgin, reaching to the hem of Her garment.

 And, once again during that year, on September 8, the Blessed Virgin appeared to her with Her hands filled with rays.  The Blessed Virgin explained to the nun that THIS SCAPULAR WAS NOT LIKE OTHER SCAPULARS, in that it would hang by a string like a medal, and no special formula was necessary to bless it.  Also, it sufficed that it be blessed by a Priest, and worn by a sinner whom we want converted.  OR, UNKNOWN TO HIM, we may place it hidden in his clothes, or bed, or room.
Every day one prayer should be said; the one that forms the inscription surrounding Mary's Immaculate Heart:  “IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, PRAY FOR US NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH.”

If the person who received the scapular cannot say this prayer, then someone must say it for that person.  The greatest of graces accompany the use of this scapular.  These graces are in proportion to the CONFIDENCE accompanying it.  That is the meaning of the different sizes of the rays falling from the Blessed Virgin's hands, at the last apparition to Sister Justine Bisqueyburu.

Prayerfully, in Mary's Immaculate Heart,

LC

A. Thank you very much for being Her instrument in reminding the world about the Green Scapular which reconfirms the tremendous importance of the veneration of Her Immaculate Heart that we highlighted in our post.

miguel has been aware of the Green Scapular since shortly after his flash conversion but, as we have said many times, we have so many "pots cooking on a two burner stove" that unless God crashes in with a reminder, as you just did, we have to treat pending matters as the ice cream chain Baskin-Robbins treats it customers: "Take a number, please!"

We pray that whomever read this post makes it available to as many of the Faithful as possible.

We just found out that packages of ten Green Scapulars are available at Amazon at a very reasonable price ($19.90 for a package of ten).

This is probably the least expensive and most important Christmas present that a Faithful can offer or receive. After all, Christmas is supposed to be - by acts and not words - a religious Holy Day with Jesus and Mary as the protagonists.




December 13th

From miguel de Portugal

I have just taken note that the observance of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which always falls on the Saturday after the observance of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, has been canceled for the year 2019.

The official reason is because it interferes with the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul which falls on the day we should have observed the memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary - Saturday, June 29th.

But, as if that were not enough of an insult to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Her Son, we found out that from the years 2015 and 2030 the observance of the Immaculate Heart of Mary has been or is to be canceled several other times.

Dates for the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Novus Ordo), 2015–2030 (1)

Year Date (Novus Ordo)
2017 Impeded
(would have been on 24 June)
2019 Impeded
 (would have been on 29 June)
2022 Impeded
 (would have been on 25 June)
2028 Impeded
 (would have been on 24 June)
2030 Impeded
 (would have been on 29 June)

Wikipedia explains (1):

The observance of this memorial is omitted in those years when it is impeded by a higher ranking feast. This would apply when it is due to fall on 24 June - Nativity of St John the Baptist, and 29 June - Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, and more rarely 31 May - Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and 3 July Saint Thomas the Apostle. It is also impeded when it is due to fall on 25 June and 30 June because of the coincidence of solemnities the day before, necessitating the transfer of one of them to the following [available] day. (Note that there may be variations in local calendars. For example, this feast is not impeded in England and Wales in 2019 since Saints Peter and Paul will be celebrated on Sunday 30 June.)

I am simultaneously livid and red with just rage. How do these unmentionables (2) dare to remove the observance of the Immaculate Heart of Mary which has been highlighted by Heaven over and over again since 1830, with it's zenith being the very specific petition though Fatima?

"You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go; to save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart, if what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and will have peace; the war (referring to WW I) is going to end;....

"To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.....

These same unmentionables (2) move, for example, the Feast of the Ascension from it's rightful Biblical celebration on a Thursday to the next Sunday for their convenience.... so that more $$$ is dropped in Babylon's collection plates.

Yes, Her Immaculate Conception is always celebrated and Her Immaculate Heart is the result of Her Immaculate Conception but, through the same Fatima which has filled the RCC coffers with hundreds of millions of dollars She highlighted the tremendous importance of Her Immaculate Heart.

How dare the observance of the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul trump what should be, not the Memorial but the Solemnity of the Immaculate Heart of Mary? Mary, the One Who Is more honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, and Who without stain barest the Word of God. Only an observance associated with the Father, the Son or the Holy Spirit can trump any legitimate Marian observance. There is no one in Heaven above Mary except for the Most Holy Trinity.

If they were not intent in blaspheming the Immaculate Heart of Mary they could have moved the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul to Sunday, June 30th - as it has been done in England and Wales, and just as they shuffle around any date that would be financially profitable for them.

I pray, for the bottom of my heart, while deferring to the Will of God, that this blasphemy does not take place or is the very last time they do before they are finally swept - as the chaff they are - off from among us.

Regarding your recent Board post that read: It is interesting to note that our document - Albert Einstein's Letter to God - has risen to occupy the third place among the most visited pages of our Domain....

Last November 9 the following news report (1) hit the airwaves...

Jerusalem (AP) - More than a decade before the Nazis seized power in Germany, Albert Einstein was on the run and already fearful for his country’s future, according to a newly revealed handwritten letter.

..... The previously unknown letter, brought forward by an anonymous collector, is set to go on auction next week in Jerusalem with an opening asking price of $12,000.

It is quite possible that the marked increased in the visits to your document - Einstsein's Letter to God  - has been as a result of such publicity. Also, it seems that The M+G+R Foundation is very well positioned with Google.

Excellent news.... for a change!

President Trump Signs Hatch-Sponsored Child Pornography Victim Assistance Law

“Child pornography victims could have better access to federal restitution under a bipartisan bill President Donald Trump signed into law Friday. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a key sponsor of the Amy, Vicky, and Andy Child Pornography Victim Assistance Act, called the signing a ‘momentous’ day that was many years in the making,” Dennis Romboy writes in Deseret News.

“This bipartisan legislation will provide meaningful assistance for child pornography victims to support their recovery and allow them to reclaim their lives,” Senator Hatch said. (1)

 
miguel de Portugal comments: Now, what we need is some very serious laws - with plenty of bite - to prevent the creation and distribution of child pornography.

In the meantime, let us not forget that we must target the offenders with a storm of prayers for their conversion and for the abandonment of such destructive deviant behavior. We have already been dedicating a daily decade of the Rosary for that purpose for years.

Divine coherence continues... to fascinate, encourage and console us.

As you must remember, Abraham was talked into impregnating Sarah's Egyptian slave by Sarah herself because she had decided that she was too old and infertile to have the descendant that God had promised Abraham [Genesis 12 - 21].

That was not the plan God had for Abraham's offspring, yet, because He had told Abraham that...

[4]  ...my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. [5] Neither shall thy name be called any more Abram: but thou shalt be called Abraham: because I have made thee a father of many nations.

[6] And I will make thee increase, exceedingly, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. [7] And I will establish my covenant between me and thee, and between thy seed after thee in their generations, by a perpetual covenant: to be a God to thee, and to thy seed after thee. [Genesis 17]

....God coherently honored his covenant through Ismael, Agar's and Abraham's son, in this manner....

[13] But I will make the son (Ismael) also of the bondwoman a great nation, because he is thy seed....

[16] And she (Agar, the slave - bondwoman) went her way, and sat over against him a great way off as far as a bow can carry, for she said: I will not see the boy die: and sitting over against, she lifted up her voice and wept. [17] And God heard the voice of the boy: and an angel of God called to Agar from heaven, saying: What art thou doing, Agar? fear not: for God hath heard the voice of the boy (Ismael), from the place wherein he is. [18] Arise, take up the boy, and hold him by the hand: for I will make him a great nation. [Genesis 21]

....although the son God had in mind - Isaac - was to be begotten by Abraham and Sarah later on.
 
However, the reparation that Abraham had to make for not having believed in the ability of God to give him and Sarah the promised offspring - in spite of the many confirmations in the fulfillment of the Divine promises that he had had - was tremendous. We cannot think of a more painful act of reparation to God for defying His Word.

From the time God instructed to Abraham to offer Isaac as a burnt holocaust to Him, to the time he arrived with Isaac to the place chosen by God for the child holocaust, Abraham's heart must have been in so much pain that it defies the most vivid imagination.

But why was the level of reparation so high? About 2,000 years later Jesus explained it to the world...

...unto whomsoever much is given, of him much shall be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will demand the more. [Luke 12:48]

Let us not forget that all is possible for God and, if He has told us, and confirmed it, that He will act in a certain manner in our lives, we should believe so and act accordingly.

O, Lord, grant us the Grace to never offend you in such manner, for it would be only through your Grace that my humanity will be prevented from doing so. Amen! Amen!

May the Words through Luke 12:48 serve all of us as a reminder that we will be called to account for what has been given to us in proportion to its amount/level/importance.


From (Mr.) WG @ Canada

Although I in no way agree with your stated claims that the 'catholic' faith contains the 'most' truth…. including the stated 'dogmas' of Catholicism… I noticed that in your treatment on 'papal infallibility'…. you refer to it as meaning the pope cannot be wrong or mistaken in ANYTHING he says/does. 

It’s been MY understanding…. that the concept specifically limits it to when he addresses ALL the faithful, on matters of 'faith and morals'…..thus….your categorization seems to constitute a 'straw man' argument…. the easier to demolish…. but somewhat false in its formulation.

WG

A.  It seems that you have misread/misunderstood what we have written regarding both issues.

Regarding your statement...

 "...your stated claims that the 'catholic' faith contains the 'most' truth…. including the stated 'dogmas' of Catholicism"

Our exact wording regarding such matter is:

The Catholic Faith is the one Faith which has the greatest concentration of Divinely Revealed Truths. By no means it has them all since God is the only Plenitude of Truth, but no other Faith has as many Truths in its Spiritual Treasury as the Catholic Faith.  (1)

miguel de Portugal is in the position to make that assertion without any doubts, but, as we have stated elsewhere (2) :

Should you believe what miguel de Portugal says through the pages of The M+G+R Foundation? You do not have to believe it. What is written is only for those who have Eyes to see and have Ears to hear. Woe to miguel if he does not speak loud and clear. Nothing has changed in the manner in which God has communicated with His children in the last 6,000 years.

Regarding the issue about infallibility you state:

"It’s been MY understanding…. that the concept specifically limits it to when he addresses ALL the faithful, on matters of 'faith and morals'…..thus….your categorization seems to constitute a 'straw man' argument…. the easier to demolish…. but somewhat false in it's formulation."

As in the opening part of our document (3) shows, you are technically correct; the Vatican I decree "makes it clear that the scope of this authority is limited; it applies to a Papal definition of doctrine on faith and morals, intended to be binding on all".
 
However, the real problem is with "creeping infallibility". That is, the effort on the part of the Vatican and its propagandists to cloak the Papacy with (unjustified) total infallibility.

Although the first matter - the viability of the Catholic Faith - is more important now than ever, the second one, dealing with Papal infallibility... stopped being of importance when the Papacy of John Paul II ended... which was not when he crossed the veil in  2005.

For more details on the above review our document The Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven - What Are They and Who Holds Them Now?

Thank you for the opportunity to make these points crystal clear to avoid any possible misunderstanding about our position and/or intent.

From miguel de Portugal

Take a look at the wars that have ravaged (and still are) the world during the last 120 years - the bloodiest ones among them were preventable.

Her Immaculate Conception is celebrated today to keep the faithful occupied, but their leaders, who are the ones who should lead the way to Jesus through Her, just do not pay attention to Her.


Did you know that.... when the "Guardian Angels" of the NSA, and similar agencies, monitor an e-mail account they take out the Spam and forward to the individual being monitored the Spam-free mail?

We have two main e-mail accounts: one for The M+G+R Foundation and one personal, plus several secondary ones. The addresses of the main accounts are the ones that appear everywhere attracting Spam... yet they are Spam free. The dormant accounts which are hardly used - but not monitored - are always Spam laden.

They are sweet.... maybe we should send them a Thank You! note. No; we are not being sarcastic. It is indeed a great convenience. First they are informed of what they should be informed without us spending a penny in postage as we did decades ago and, secondly, Spam is indeed a pest!


From miguel de Portugal

On last Tuesday's post we addressed the issue of when a sacrificial offering becomes a routine and/or a welcome event it ceases being a sacrificial offering - as with my fasting. We concluded the statement with:

At the moment we are working on a solution to this spiritual riddle which is made more complicated because in the non fasting days I eat poorly for the same reasons I enjoyed the days of fasting.

Our Good Lord did not waste any time in solving the riddle for me, and thus, for you.

Most of my health issues stem from the faulty flow of neuronal instruction messages from my brain to the rest of the body and the necessary feedback from the body to the brain for it to adjust "its settings".

This faulty flow of neuronal message is random and also affects random parts and functions of the body - the environment temperature felt, blood pressure levels, vision, balance, etc. Therefore there is not getting used to any malfunction - each one is different, to different degrees and at random times.

Perfect solution! Each problem, as it is allowed by Him - even for a few minutes or hours - is offered as needed for the sacrifice required for that "... kind (that) can go out by nothing, but by prayer and sacrifice."

God IS Good !!!


December 6th

From Mrs. IW @ US

I have a very special request to make of you.  It pertains to my daughter's work as dispatcher and her ongoing concern pertaining to the marked increase in distress calls coming in which deal specifically with critical mental health issues.

During the past year, she has been training to become a team member of a program specifically geared towards helping both the public and first responders cope with traumatic situations.  

While listening to her heart-rending examples of the critical need for intervention for those suffering so greatly, it became very clear that I was to beg for your powerful intercessory prayers on behalf of all these specific first responders who hurt silently, and those who are helping them to overcome that hurt, yet who have had to deal with their own personal life traumas.

Thank you for hearing my plea on behalf of all those who hurt so much.

IW

A. Thank you very much for bringing this situation to our attention. Many lives depend on first responders who are counted upon to deliver the help they are supposed to.... but, what about them? A compassionate first responder lives in a state of trauma and needs to be cared for.... for the benefit of all.

As we have mentioned before, besides the unchanging daily intentions for which we offer the merits of the daily Masses, there are intentions which are presented to our Lord once a week on a rotating schedule.

For example: (a) On Monday we specifically apply the merits of the Mass to those who are suffering in the world, and in Purgatory, as the result of our iniquities and greed; (b) On Tuesday we specifically apply the merits of the Mass to the 59 million refugees throughout the world; etc.

Starting today, and at every Thursday Mass thereafter, we will specifically apply the merits of the Mass to the spiritual and mental health of all first responders.

The responders need it and the callers need it!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.


From miguel de Portugal

Last December 3rd there was a major - and serious - change in the supernatural domain. Without getting into the complex details on how it was confirmed to me, this is how I found myself involved in it.

For quite some time, in every Mass that we offer and after invoking the Communion of Saints, we virtually gather the merits of all valid Masses offered throughout the world on that day as well as all the merits of all valid Communions performed also throughout the world, and present all those merits to God through our hands.

God stopped us from making that offering any more effective December 3rd. A close collaborator, after learning about this dramatic change, reminded us that some time ago we were making our own the intentions associated with those Masses and Communions being offered worldwide. Then, after a long while of doing so, God caused us to cease that procedure and only allowed the presentation of the merits. Now, it is neither.

We leave it to the Holy Spirit of God to explain to you the serious significance of this latest instruction from Heaven, an instruction which we view as another clear spiritual indicator as to where we are in the journey to the End of These Times.


If there is a message from Jesus... that we might consider the most important, is the one with which today's Gospel starts and which we do not tire of stressing to one and all:

Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. [Matthew 7:21]

The same theme/concept/principle was in our comments of yesterday's Divine Encouragement
 - something that I take as the real insistence of God that we proclaim it over and over again since my hand and/or will did not cause this once-again "coincidence".

Personally, as just "the guy next door", I would take this Divine insistence very seriously and acted upon it without delay - if it was not already part of my day-to-day living.


As the news of....
Mr. George H. W. Bush passing on flooded the airwaves, the first thought that came to mind was - the Godfather of the New World Order has crossed the veil.


December 4th

From miguel de Portugal

We wish to share with you two situations which illustrate why we must rely on the illumination and guidance of the Holy Spirit and not in what human logic dictates - most specially - as we read the Holy Scriptures.

One

A much quoted Divine Commandment tells us that: Six days shall ye do work: the seventh day, because it is the rest of the sabbath, shall be called holy. You shall do no work on that day: it is the sabbath of the Lord in all your habitations. [Leviticus 23:3]

Most believers call that the "Day of the Lord" - a day dedicated to God.

Many years ago I thought that since my work is 100 % directed to the service of God - that is - the seven days of the week were "Days of the Lord", basically that Commandment did not apply to me.

Eventually, as I was collapsing from exhaustion, I realized that the importance of that day - the sabbath - is really to rest from the work we have done the prior six days. Any work!

Once I realized what that Commandment really meant - although our five hours of prayers and liturgy continued unchanged - the computer was turned off for 24 hours, no documents were processed, no letters answered, no web master's tasks were done, that is, "the Apocalypse was placed on hold"! Then the sabbath "worked its miracle" on me!

The Commandment could be written as: On the Seventh Day you must rest on the Lord!

Two

Fasting, as we do not tire of highlighting, is very important - just as Jesus pointed out when He said:

This kind can go out by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. [Mark 9:28]

Now, what happens when fasting becomes a preferred day? Obviously a preferred day is not a sacrifice.

I recently realized that the fasting days were of my preference because I did not have to be concerned with preparing my meals or waste time eating, cleaning up the kitchen, etc.; instead I could be hard at work for the Lord.

At the moment we are working on a solution to this spiritual riddle which is made more complicated because in the non fasting days I eat poorly for the same reasons I enjoyed the days of fasting.

Jesus instructions could be written as: This kind can go out by nothing, but by prayer and sacrifice.

While on the subject of sacrifice... We are sure that you have heard about St. So and So who slept on a board and not a mattress or about St. Thus and So who did not wear shoes.

Just pious propaganda - once your body gets used to either situation it is no longer a sacrifice. If one wants to use either situation - sleeping on a board or walking without shoes - as a sacrifice do so at random. With the days of the imposed discomfort varying in numbers interspersed within also varying days of sleeping on a mattress and wearing shoes. Now, that will be a real sacrificial offering!

Maybe we should consider something like that instead of the joyful fasting days.


When we pray.... "May God have Mercy on His Elect", or invoke a prayer upon His Elect, it is primarily rooted on the Gospel according to John, Ch. 17:
[our underscoring]

[6] I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou hast given me out of the world. Thine they were, and to me thou gavest them; and they have kept thy word. [7] Now they have known, that all things which thou hast given me, are from thee: [8] Because the words which thou gavest me, I have given to them; and they have received them, and have known in very deed that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. [9] I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given me: because they are thine: [10] And all my things are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

[11] And now I am not in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name whom thou has given me; that they may be one, as we also are. [12] While I was with them, I kept them in thy name. Those whom thou gavest me have I kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled. [13] And now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy filled in themselves. [14] I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world; as I also am not of the world. [15] I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from evil.  [16] They are not of the world, as I also am not of the world.

Nonetheless, we are not to label people, nor to point fingers, nor to guess who are part of the Elect (1) (thus, of God). Appearances are quite deceiving. A quick look at the Church Administration will confirm that.

However, a good general gauge that we can use when determining who to associate with, may also be found in the Scriptures:

[34] And looking round about on them who sat about him, he saith: Behold my mother and my brethren. [35] For whosoever shall do the will of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and mother. [Mark 3]

To "Do the Will of God" does not mean "Talk about the Will of God" . Talk was, is and will ever be "Cheap". However, as we have underscored many times with full authority from God (2), we can add an otherwise invisible phrase to that verse: For whosoever shall [strive with all his heart to] do the will of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

From miguel de Portugal

With eleven months worth of Earthquakes greater than 5.0 in the Richter scale counted, the projected number of Earthquakes for the year 2018 remained at about the same level  projected last month: 17 to 18 %  more than what we had in the year 2017.

As a reminder of what we had in the year 2017: It was 2.5 times the average for the prior three years (2014, 2015 and 2016).

The other difference continues to be that we are seeing Earthquakes in locations that we have seldom seen in the past several years of monitoring and they continue to increase in magnitude as compared with the average for last year.



December 1st

From Mrs. DLV @ US

I feel like I am often vacillating between elation about the future and fear of it, knowing that both roads lead to the same place regardless.

Can you help me with this whenever you find the time, please? I would very much appreciate your insight on this matter.

DLV

A. Thank you for asking! On the surface it seems as a very simple question, yet is indeed very profound and many are struggling with the same feelings.

Being a mother of more than one child, you - and all mothers - may understand this parallel which will help deal with any anxiety/concern about the future events.

After a nine month pregnancy - which even a trouble free one is difficult - and the delivery of a baby, which even with the help of analgesics is not pain and trouble free, not to mention the postpartum bodily readjustments and the first year of a demanding creature that does nothing else besides cry and soil diapers - did not stop you from having a second one, did it?

How come? The future joy of bringing to the world another human being and to raise him/her as you "have always felt it should be done" simply overpowers any and all difficulties of the nine months plus the year after the birth.

What about the men? Well, men do not have to live through the physical aspect of the pregnancy but may have to endure other inconveniences associated with it, as well as the first year of the baby. Not to mention the psychological weight of the responsibility associated with parenthood, yet, are most normal and healthy men not delighted when they hear that they will be a father?

Why, why, why? The promised joy of a daughter or a son simply overpowers any of the very real and physical negative aspects of bringing a new baby to the world.

Now then, as a grandparent, would you want for your grandchild to grow up in the world as it is today and which gets worse by the day? A world where - even in the greatest nation of the world....

...suicides and drug overdoses pushed up U.S. deaths last year, and drove a continuing decline in how long Americans are expected to live.

Overall, there were more than 2.8 million U.S. deaths in 2017, or nearly 70,000 more than the previous year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday. It was the most deaths in a single year since the government began counting more than a century ago. (1)

We must look to what is to come as a true deliverance - not of a baby - but of a new world, a new life, a new opportunity!.... and that joy, fueled by the Holy Spirit, will carry us through all difficulties.

Of course, we must recognize our humanity. It is very hard to live/function with the upcoming global/cosmic upheaval at the forefront of our consciousness.

What we recommend to His children to do is: to just be as aware of it to the extent that it is needed to strengthen your faith and draw closer to God, but not to dwell on it. This concept is what our publications are now geared to. We try to only publish/quote the news (just as we did above) that will serve as a reminder - an "awareness tool" or an instrument - to illustrate an important point, and not to keep those who may read them in a state of sustained panic.

If we have failed to answer the question properly and provide the appropriate remedy for all our readers, let us know. That is one of the reasons we are here for.

From Mrs. LM @ US


In yesterday's Divine Encouragement... your comment that "Salvation is NOT automatic" is so true.

I know parents who have their children Baptized and never make their way to church again. I told someone once that parents who do that were lying to God.

In the sessions you go to for Baptism of the child, the parents, agree to raise the child in the faith.

The God-Parents should also be practicing Catholics and not Catholics in name only.  Unfortunately, these people really believe that all they need to do is have the baby Baptized.

If the child is never Confirmed, never accepts Jesus on their own, what then?

This really irritates me. With that said, I need to fast more, myself, and not just during lent.

Thank you for sending this reminder from the the Lord.

LM

A. Thank you for your prompt reaction to our comments in yesterday's Divine Encouragement. What you describe is the perfect example of the results of a failed Evangelization. These poor people think that what they are doing is sufficient for Salvation.

Your question "If the child is never Confirmed, never accepts Jesus on their own, what then?" is quite valid and we can give you a concrete example of how God can handle such eventuality - even in extreme cases..... because m de P lived that experience.

My parents functioned essentially in that way. They erroneously felt that with the Baptism, a well prepared First Communion and a wedding in the Church - all necessary requirements for Salvation were met.

The apparent slip up was that I was never confirmed... but God took care of that. m de P was confirmed at the Antiochian Orthodox Church on the 23rd of September of 1998. It was much later that he realized that: (a) he had never been confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church; and (b) the date chosen was his birthday which, providentially, was also the day when the Orthodox Church celebrates the Conception of John the Baptist.

As you can see - Jesus took care of the fact that m de P had never been confirmed before.... just as He will in the case of others who, through no fault of their own, have never accepted Jesus on their own.

What God needs is - as you have said - our prayers and fasting so that we open the doors for Him to do what He must do to get them, through their own free will, to accept Jesus on their own.

and now, some light fare...

Do you remember... what access to the internet cost in 1998, the year when The M+G+R Foundation went on-line?

We just came across the disk cover from Earthlink which contained the CD used to sign up and connect to the internet through Earthlink. Needless to say, we had forgotten about the cost thus were startled. We quote:

Note: The number in parenthesis would be the cost in 2018 US Dollars

Earthlink Basic Plan: Available from most major cities in the US. (notice: only from major cities and not all, just most)

Set up fee: $25.00 ($38.79) ; $19.95 ($30.95) per month for unlimited usage.

Alternative Plan: Access the internet from anywhere in the US using a toll free number.

Set up fee: $25.00 ($38.79);  $19.95 ($30.95) per month which (only) includes 5 hours of on-line time. Additional time cost $4.95 ($7.68) /per hour

We must remember that before complaining about internet cost these days...
