Points to Ponder About

December 2006 - March 2007

PURPOSE

The purpose of Points to Ponder About is to stimulate thinking that would draw the disoriented Faithful back to God (1) and away from the hypocritical duplicity of some religious institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth (2).

The instructions are simple: Just invoke the illumination of the Holy Spirit of God while you ponder upon any of these Points to Ponder and let God guide you to Light. We know that some make-believe religious leaders will say: "What about satan interfering and leading the soul astray?" To those... we invoke Our Lord's Words again:

"...Get the behind me, Satan: the art an offense unto me: for the severest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men." [Matthew 16:23]

 and further

"And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and yea shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  For every one that sketch receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.  If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?  Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?  If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? [Luke 11:9-13]

 and finally

"But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." [Matthew 23:13]

Do you ever wonder... what he means and by whose authority miguel de Portugal refers to certain Ecclesiastic Administrators as Spiritual Bastards?

Those who meditated upon the Mass Readings for March 28th would have read John 8: 31-42:

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews, who believed him: If you continue in my word, you shall be my disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33 They answered him: We are the seed of Abraham, and we have never been slaves to any man: how sayest thou: you shall be free? 34 Jesus answered them: Amen, amen I say unto you: that whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin. 35 Now the servant abideth not in the house for ever; but the son abideth for ever.

36 If therefore the son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. 37 I know that you are the children of Abraham: but you seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. 38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the things that you have seen with your father. 39 They answered, and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith to them: If you be the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham. 40 But now you seek to kill me, a man who have spoken the truth to you, which I have heard of God. This Abraham did not.

41 You do the works of your father. They said therefore to him: We are not born of fornication: we have one Father, even God. 42 Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded, and came; for I came not of myself, but he sent me:

Please, do take note that Jesus was speaking to "...
those Jews, who believed him:..."

May those who have Eyes, See and Ears, Hear.

Do you ever wonder... what Mary really meant when She told the Fatima children:

"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. If my requests are heeded, Russian will be converted, and there will be peace;  if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated;  in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world. In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will be preserved,.... Do not tell this to anybody. Francisco, yes, you may tell him." [Whole Text, in English and Portuguese, is Item B in ATTACHMENT II]

Did she only mean communism or was there something else? What errors was She speaking about which prompted Her to close with the statement:
In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will be preserved?

Could She have been referring to the true poison of the Faith which was birthed by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, a Russian, and which was the precursor of The New Age Movement and all deviations springing from it like the United Religions Initiative?

Think about it.....

Do you ever wonder..... when Jesus said from the cross:  " Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." if the Temple Administrators perhaps knew what they were doing?

No, they did not... unless they were fully possessed by satan. Only satan would attempt to cause pain and suffering to God in the flesh (he knows good and well that he could not kill Him).  A mere human would have to be totally insane to, knowingly, crucify God in the human flesh.

Do you ever wonder..... exactly what we mean when we refer to the Church Administrator's "poor Evangelizing effort"?  We shall explain:

Without agreeing with the new and strong currents which grants Mary Magdalene the Primacy over the chosen Apostles nor with those who are pushing for women in the Priesthood, we cannot deny that the role of women in the New Testament has been greatly downplayed for the benefit of male dominance.

In today's reading [Solemnity of St. Joseph] we read (quoting from The USCCB published readings for the day):

Reading 1
[2 Samuel 7:4-5a, 12-14a, 16]

The LORD spoke to Nathan and said: “Go, tell my servant David, ‘When your time comes and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your heir after you, sprung from your loins, and I will make his kingdom firm. It is he who shall build a house for my name. And I will make his royal throne firm forever. I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me. Your house and your kingdom shall endure forever before me; your throne shall stand firm forever.’”

and

Gospel

[Matthew 1:16, 18-21, 24a]

Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ. (These two sentences are not part of the Scriptures but in the USCCB page it appears to be part of the reading.)

Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, etc.

As part of the Christmas readings we read:

[Luke 2:4]


And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David,

The confusing message is that Joseph had to be the real father of Jesus since he is the one highlighted as being from the House of David and "...Go, tell my servant David, ‘When your time comes and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your heir after you, sprung from your loins, and I will make his kingdom firm..." and "...because he was of the house and family of David,"

The fulfillment of the Prophecy spoken for through Samuel comes through Mary Who was also of the House of David and symbolically - just symbolically - through Joseph.

Do you ever wonder..... why the Faithful keep chasing after the latest Marian Apparition or latest "seer" message when all that Mary has had to say and request has been said and requested many times already?

For the same reason people keep seeking for the "miracle diet" when all they have to do is eat less, eat healthy food and exercise regularly.

With Heaven there is no "easy way out" just like there is no easy way out of excess weight.

25 For it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. [Luke 18]

But, if you ask....

26 Who then can be saved? [Mark 10]

He answered that too....

  27 With men it is impossible; but not with God: for all things are possible with God. [Mark 10]

Which is what Mary has been trying to get across to the Faithful through the Church Administration since the beginning of the 19th Century

At least, one thing that you do not have to wonder about is where the world is heading too....

Do you ever wonder..... how deceitful can satan be?  Wonder no more - Everywhere there is a strong Pro Life movement everyone is exhorted to pray for the victims of abortion... meaning, the aborted babies... when the real victims, the ones whose souls are at stake, are the mothers seeking the death of their children and those who assist her in doing so.

Thus, we pray for the souls of the baby, whose only sin was their personal version of the original sin, and we do not pray for those who need it the most. Score is, once again: satan 1; disoriented Faithful 0

While, with his right hand is directing the above snare, with his left hand he is making sure that the noise made about abortion drowns the horrendous cries to Heaven caused by the destruction of souls through child sexual abuse.

Updated score: satan 2; disoriented Faithful 0

....and so it goes, but, since precious few "know our face", satan's score will continue to increase until God gives mankind an unequivocal and final warning - a preview of which "the faceless one" already experienced; a warning which will not be survived by many due to the condition of the souls of most.

Do you ever wonder..... If the person occupying the "seat of Peter", the papacy is "chosen by God" thorough the vote by the council of voting cardinals, how is it possible for a "false pope" or a person "not worthy" pope  to occupy the papacy occur?  
 
 This pope stands in place of Jesus, who is the head of the Church. Why would God let anyone "not worthy" occupy this seat since this person is responsible for the doctrines of the Faith, and we are to accept the pope as the head of the Church and an authority on the Faith?

The answer is simpler than it appears. First, we refer the reader to the First Book of KINGS 22: 1-38. In there you will see how God allows satan to deceive those who were seeking His Word through certain prophets. Why? Simply because they knew what they wanted to do and really did not care about the Will of God. They were just going through the motions. Just like most conclaves have been for centuries. If you read miguel de Portugal's report on his trip to Rome during the last conclave you will see how all was carefully (and obvious to those who have eyes) staged.

Do you now wonder why we continue to uphold and promote the Catholic Faith with its invaluable Sacraments in spite of the less-than-desirables who have occupied the Chair of Peter and the highest positions in the Church Administration such as Levada and Egan, just to mention two of many?

As we have said often - even satan must serve God and, since God would not allow, under any circumstances, that His Elect be deprived of the benefits of the Pristine Catholic Faith at these most critical times, the Faith has been mostly untouched by those filthy hands.

Do you ever wonder..... why the Faithful has more and more reason to be confused an disoriented?

Take a look at what we read in a Detroit alternative newspaper (*) and from which we quote: ands wonder no more....

"Father Samonie says what he witnessed as a boy made him powerfully aware, for the first time, of a spirit world. Throughout his childhood and his 50-year career as a Roman Catholic priest — at nine metro Detroit parishes — Samonie didn't talk much about that day, but it was the first of many episodes that eventually changed his views about religion..

He made his story public in 1998, when, he says, Jesus granted him permission to publish a tell-all book, On My Way Home. He's written four books since. The latest, Rite of Passage, comes out this month, and he's got another already in manuscript form about the teachings of Edgar Cayce, a clairvoyant and well-known author who claimed to be able to answer questions about the meaning of the universe and countless other topics through a process of self-induced hypnosis."

and

"Father Jay bridges the gap between fundamentalists and spiritualists, he brings it all together."

Schmaltz and his partner Rich Wedeking are hunting for a distributor for Light and looking into getting it on the film festival circuit.

Here's a man of the cloth — a Roman Catholic priest, no less — who thinks Lucifer's gotten a "bum rap" and believes in a perpetual cycle of reincarnation. He looks for truth on his own terms.

Samonie has a doctoral degree in metaphysics from University of Detroit and two master's degrees. He meditates and practices yoga — has been for more than four decades — and his quest for truth has led him to study Eastern traditions in which religion coincides with personal mystical experiences. But it took him years to come to terms with the out-of-body sensations — the visions, the visits from spirit guides and spontaneous trances that brought to his mind vivid memories of past lives as a concert pianist, a Mayan architect and the 17th century painter Diego Velásquez.

As fantastic as his tales seem, it's hard not to believe the man. He's a persuasive and witty storyteller, and he's extremely intelligent without being at all arrogant. He speaks Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Arabic, Spanish, French and German. He teaches about the importance of following your conscience no matter what the Bible says, and lectures on the difference between being religious and being spiritual. Remember: He's a Catholic priest. He's been reported for heresy by his peers ("fine gentlemen," Samonie calls them) four times, and yet he considers those charges "credits." Samonie's unassuming and humble, someone you can't easily dismiss as a wacko."

[Comment: He claims past life recall  ... and one of these was as a Mayan:]

"After finally taking priesthood vows in 1956, he studied in Mexico City, living at a seminary called El Seminario Conciliar. He visited the nearby pyramids of Teotihuacán. It was there that he recounts his first past-life vision. In On My Way Home, he describes the episode from another lifetime:

I remember seeing a flash of light from the camera when she took the picture. I started to go join the tour group. However, the most amazing thing happened! I said to myself, "What is this? What's going on?" I looked at my arms. They were very dark. I then noticed I had only a loin cloth around my waist. I felt my hair. It was straight and jet black. I kept saying to myself "I'm a Mayan. How can this be? I am Jay Samonie. How did I get here? And how do I get back?"

As I was standing there in a state of complete confusion someone came up to me speaking in another tongue, not Mayan. Nevertheless, I understood perfectly and told him to how to place a large block in place. The stone must have weighed several tons. ... I was actually doing the work of an architect supervising the construction of two rows of structures that eventually joined the two pyramids."

Samonie writes that two women found him standing, unresponsive, with his head tilted to the right. Later that day, his tour guide told him that it was possible the architects of the pyramids were Mayan."

[Comment:  The journalist ... and it seems, the priest ... claim that the Church accepted reincarnation for the first 5 centuries. ]

"Scholars say reincarnation was acknowledged in Christianity and in the Bible, until 553 AD, when Justinian, Emperor of the Eastern Empire in Constantinople, and his wife Empress Theodora, had the references taken out. By some accounts, they burned all the Bibles and had them rewritten because Theodora was afraid she was going to return loaded down with bad karma for, among other things, working previously as a courtesan and promoting ethical treatment of prostitutes.

Samonie says he's not alone in his beliefs. Two well-noted examples he cites are Cardinal Desire Joseph Mercier, an early 20th century leader who became the Belgian spokesman against German occupation during World War I, and Thomas Merton, a Trappist monk and author ordained as a Roman Catholic priest."

"Father Jay never preached about his personal experiences in church services, but Eastern philosophies, including reincarnation, came up in workshops he taught. During the late '70s and early '80s, while working at Holy Trinity, Samonie taught classes in the Silva Method of Mind Development and Stress Control, which focuses on meditation, healing, positive thinking and memory techniques to sharpen the mind. "

"But Samonie established his own reputation at Holy Trinity. While continuing the free medical and legal clinics and Kern's open-door policy for helping the poor, he also founded the Manna Soup Kitchen, a program that continues to feed the public. Samonie served for five years as the director of the Pastoral Team for the Hispanic Apostolate, which founded Latin Americans for Social, Economic Development (LASED), and hosted the first pilot project for Alternative for Girls, a 20-year-old local program that provides support, shelter and counseling to high-risk young women and girls. In 1989, Samonie was officially appointed by Michigan Gov. James Blanchard to serve on the Judicial Tenure Commission, a group that oversees the conduct Michigan judges. Samonie was the first priest to be appointed to the commission.

Despite his reputation in the community, Samonie's career has been contentious because he promoted the notion that an individual's personal conscience is superior to any rulebook, saying that the Bible is full of metaphorical teachings. That's not so controversial today, with many priests putting their careers on the line to speak out against the policies of this country and the church. But in the 1950s and '60s, Samonie was delving into ideas that weren't church-approved. In 1963, Samonie says he got some backup, when the Second Vatican Council "let some fresh air in," calling for an examination of all the church doctrines, but many clung to conservative notions."

Do you ever wonder..... what Jesus really meant when He said:  17 ....They that are well have no need of a physician, but they that are sick. For I came not to call the just, but sinners.  [Mark 2]

Exactly who are "They that are well" and who are "...they that are sick." ?

The truth is that we are all sick for...
7 When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. [John 8] It is just a matter of being aware of it.

"They that are well" - are those who think that they are well and would not respond to His call - then and now; the rest of us - His Elect - are "...they who are sick." for we recognize it and hang on to each of His Words for They are true nourishment for our souls; nourishment which strengthen us to "walk" The Way - His Way - the ONLY Way.

Do you ever wonder..... how do you know when what you want for yourself is not the right thing, or the result that you want is not God's Will.

Quite simple: It really does not matter... IF whatever you ask for and seek you, as an act of your free will, subject it to the Will of God.

If you do so, He will not allow it, under any circumstances.

We suggest that the Faithful who is seeking more and more Light, peruse our documents which focus on purely Theological topics.

Do you ever wonder..... why we must avoid trying to find details about the future - whether via Horoscopes, Seers, supernaturally gifted individuals such as Nostradamus, fortunetellers, etc.? The reason is quite simple and should be very compelling.

Do you ever wonder..... why we end up with the elected politicians we do? If we paid attention to the people with whom we interact day in and day out we SHOULD know why.

Do you ever wonder..... where the whole Valentine "ritual" of gift and card giving originated?  Wonder no more....

At least three different Saint Valentines, all of them martyrs, are mentioned in the early martyrologies under date of 14 February. One is described as a priest at Rome, another as a bishop of modern Terni, and these two seem both to have suffered in the second half of the third century and to have been buried on the Flaminian Way, but at different distances from the city. In the 12th century what was known to the ancients as the Flaminian Gate of Rome and is now the Porta del Popolo, was called the Gate of St. Valentine. The name seems to have been taken from a small church dedicated to the saint which was in the immediate neighborhood. Of both these St. Valentines some sort of official records are preserved but they are of relatively late date and of no historical value. Of the third Saint Valentine, who suffered in Africa with a number of companions, nothing further is known.

Saint Valentine's Day

The popular customs associated with Saint Valentine's Day undoubtedly had their origin in a conventional belief generally received in England and France during the Middle Ages, that on 14 February, i.e. half way through the second month of the year, the birds began to pair. Thus in Chaucer's Parliament of Foules we read:

For this was sent on Seynt Valentyne's day
Whan every foul cometh ther to choose his mate.

For this reason the day was looked upon as specially consecrated to lovers and as a proper occasion for writing love letters and sending lovers' tokens.

Therefore, the bottom line is: It had to do little with saints and holiness and much about mating; i.e. sex.

Thus - nothing new under the Sun... It is "Sex yesterday today and tomorrow..."

Do you ever wonder..... why it seems that God randomly and frequently punishes the population of this Earth?

Actually He does not punish His children as we understand punishment. When we run into great difficulties it is only for one or two reasons.

The key is to learn how to "make lemonade" every time we force Him to give us a "lemon".  Life is just learning how to make lemonade - once we learn, it will feel that the lemons stopped coming...

Do you ever wonder..... why Catholics solicit the intercession of their favorite Saints in Heaven even though the Second Resurrection and Final Judgment is yet to come? [Revelations 20: 6-15]

Because Time exists in parallel with Eternity as we have explained before.


Published on January 28, 2007

Do you ever wonder..... why, nowadays, most priests in the confessional give such bland and ineffective responses when the penitent presents him with his (the penitent's) sins, shortcomings and problems which require feedback and guidance to overcome?

Even though we criticize, with the intent to correct the clergy and protect the Faithful, the abysmal failings of many of the priests and hierarchy, we must also acknowledge that they face some very serious uphill problems with the Faithful. Following is an example:

miguel de Portugal receives a letter from a regular to The M+G+R Foundation Domain: [edited to protect the privacy of the writer]:

Due to the terrible [State deleted] economy, we are about to lose everything, our business, our home, we are financially ruined after trying to keep the business afloat... Despite daily mass, many rosaries per day, adoration, personal prayer time, etc...

Where will we raise our [large number deleted] children? May God have mercy on us... please pray for our family, we need a miracle.

Yours in Christ,

miguel gave this plea priority and immediately responded thus:

May the Peace of God be upon you!

You state: "...despite daily mass, many rosaries per day, adoration, personal prayer time, etc... we are about to lose everything, our business, our home, we are financially ruined after trying to keep the business afloat"

When anyone is faced with something like this, the first thing that must be done is to realize that we, not God,  are doing something wrong and God is trying to call our attention to it.

[In here m de P gave this writer a very graphic example of an abysmal situation he had just witnessed. Upon visiting the "stage of events" in person, it became  crystal clear to him why  God is allowing such misery upon them, yet the individuals cannot see the "why". We have edited the details out for privacy concerns.]

What your situation is - we do not know.  The examples above are just given as illustrations of cases when it appeared that God somehow was failing them and, although not directly stated, by default, that is precisely what is being implied - which made matters even worse. [We can go on and on with similar examples.]

In a past mailing you stated: [Deleted a statement about a seer in her group] and that deeply disturbed us because it pointed toward "problems". Group seer?

What we understand by a "Seer" is precisely what we instruct against in our document http://www.mdep.org/adivin.html

Regarding "where will we raise our [many, many] children" - let us remember that God has the interest of those children more at heart than you and your husband ever will.  They ARE His children - you and your husband are God's caretakers for those children.

Having said all of that - we recommend that you point blank ask Him to show you what is not in order in your and your husband's lives which has caused Him to, after trying to gently show you many times in the past, without doubt, now has no other choice but to increase the volume of the megaphone http://www.mdep.org/redempt.html

You may be assured of our prayers which will be offered to God seeking His favor so that He may show you where the "disorder" is so that you may correct it and bring back the spiritual harmony that He wishes for you, your husband and His [many, many] children in your care.

We pray that we have not offended you in any way but there was nothing else we could say.  We are not into "politically" correct interaction with the Faithful - we are here to help those who seek help.

Many continued Blessings!

m de P through The M+G+R Foundation

The lengthy response came back "fast and furious" and it concluded with:
I must add that I am sadder after hearing your response, what i needed was hope.
Before even having read the first one, we received another lengthy one which started thus:
After sleeping on it, I accept all blame if my original posts were not clear and you were misled. I accept the blame, as a family, for falling short of what God wants from us - I know I am doing everything personally I can do to beg for his help and remain faithful and loving to him.
Once again, regardless of the inital wording, the blame is placed on God since the writer "...is doing everything personally I can do...".  Could it be that what the writer think is  "everything" does not include what God needs her to do - thus our original recommendation?

Then the situation of the seer was clarified because the writer felt that we misunderstood her. The clarification only confirmed our concerns. That individual, in New Age circles, would be called a "chaneler" and amongst spiritualists would be called a "medium" and in santeria would be called "babalao".

If we had only said: "Yes, you may count on our prayers" the writer would have been happy.  However, we knew that there must be a major disorder in that environment and tried to guide the writer on how to approach God to find out what to do. That would accelerate the solution because the prayers offered would be directed to the problem.

We have had (we do not make a point of this type of work for such function is not our charge) a situation from another family which was amongst the worse family disorders that we have encountered. It was bordering on the unreal. A response more specific - and very hard to endure - was given since the writer gave us every hair raising detail imaginable. The writer, with determination, wanted to get to the bottom of the problems and to act upon them in accordance to the Will of God; and so she did.

We would get an update every four to six months because it was God Who was going to walk with her, not miguel. If a slight adjustment in the approach was needed, miguel  mentioned it as well as answering any doubts the writer may have had.

Today we received an update - the results are a continual string of wonders and miracles accompanied by the writer's ever present jaculatory, even when she was at the bottom of the pit: He is a most Loving and Generous God. Praise be His Most Holy Name!!

This is why, brethren, many confessors - symbolically speaking - after hearing a penitent confess that he had killed his next door neighbor because he wanted to bed the neighbor's wife - may say: "You are not alone child - that is exactly what King David did to Urias and God forgave him. For your penitence pray an Our Father, a Hail Mary and a Gloria..... Next!"

For the record - the man who was later annoited miguel de Portugal, can say that, with the exception of the number of children, regarding the finacial situation you face: "I've been there and done that!" and alone - just with God and my mother Elizabeth. Therefore we speak with first hand knowledge of the problem. Incidentally, the medicine m de P prescribed for you is exactly the same one he took... and, of course, it worked.

We are not being neither sarcastic nor insensitive. We want to drive home - all homes - the point that:

When we say that we need to take a close look at what we may be doing wrong before saying "...despite daily mass, many rosaries per day, adoration, personal prayer time, etc... we are losing this and that..." is because  that mentality is already blocking any forthcoming Divine action. In addition - if a writer does not want a direct response from us, given with the loving intent to help the writer in the most expeditious manner, please, do not write!



Published on January 25, 2007

Do you ever wonder..... why so many people feel that they are unworthy of God's Love, Mercy, Forgiveness?  Unworthy of a good life? Unworthy of friends?

Because that is satan's full time job so that, by the time the individual goes to the Final Judgment, with satan in attendance to accuse you of all your misdeeds, the poor individual will accept that he/she is not worthy of Heaven and then chose hell.

As we have said before - God does not send anyone to Eternal Damnation, we make that choice at the time of the Final Judgment  - craftily coached by satan himself.

Why do you think that in the Catholic prayer: Hail Mary we ask: "...pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death." We are asking Mary to assist us at that very critical moment so that we do not make the wrong choice.

Of course none of us is intrinsically worthy of
God's Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, except for the fact the God Himself CHOSE to make us worthy of it.

Therefore, all that is required is that we strive to serve Him by being all He created us to be.  That is achieved by striving at having an interactive relationship with God - day in and day out. How is this accomplished? Just like with acquiring Faith - we must, in sincerity, ask Him for it. Then, He will dispense it at the rate that we can accept and assume it.

Brethren - this just could not be any simpler or easier.  This is what The Good News is all about.

  A Member of our Select List wonders....
Why I did not receive the good news on 1/13/07 like some of the others?  I thought that I was signed up to receive all of your messages.  This knowledge gave me a great deal of security, but now I'm wondering if I have missed other thoughts of yours as well.  If you have time, please explain.
[Our brother in Christ refers to the communication that may be read on the Public Forum dated January 20th ]

You are indeed signed on all three Lists; however, no specific List was used for said mailing.

 If m de P's life depended on explaining why "x" received the communication and "y" did not  [ "x" + "y" = 20 ], he still could not.  We keep stressing that m de P is just a "gofer" for God - the more m de P stays out of God's way, the better God can utilize him. Your security and that of all who place their full trust in Him, is squarely in the Hands of God, not in the hands of m de P - thus m de P's every effort to stay out of His way so that He can be served well.

Why God wished to delay the publishing of that uplifting information beyond those 20 individuals? We simply do not know.  What we know is that, being that it was the Will of God, it had, by definition, to be good for all - those who received it then and those who did not.

In the Kingdom of God, an opened door is as positive a sign as a closed door is. With God a "No" is as positive a feedback from Him as a "Yes" is.

Do you wonder, considering that the Vatican claims that the occupant of the Chair of Peter is infallible, the following took place?
Pope Benedict XVI is reported to have been left "furious" and "isolated" by events of recent days when the man he approved as the next Archbishop of Warsaw was exposed as an agent of the Polish secret police.

But Benedict once again appears short on wise advisers or - worse - is being deliberately led into error by forces in the Vatican who are out of sympathy with him.

Furthermore, if the election of a Pope in a Conclave is allowed to be guided by the Holy Spirit of God, why does it take so many ballots before a majority is reached? Is the Holy Spirit confused or are the Cardinals engaged in a battle of wills with God? [We know that the Holy Spirit of God IS NOT confused.]

Are the ones who did not vote for the "winner" not illuminated by the Holy Spirit of God?, yet they Administer the Roman Catholic Church.

Do you ever wonder..... where does miguel de Portugal gets his information?

We just received a lengthy communication which has, at its core the following: issue

So the writer said the problem there was that he did not “know your face”.  What if he really meant he did not know where your revelations came from?  Too often people writing to you try to be delicate and do not say what they mean (see point 2), so I will say it: Proper caution about spiritual matters dictates that we consider the consequences if you are dead wrong on some points, and the dangers are manifest.  You have steadfastly refused to state how you know these things, and that is the core of the problem.  That is, it is possible you are the recipient of direct revelations from Heaven, spoken like the Angel who spoke to Mary.  I would NOT dismiss you out of hand if you were to admit this, but it would put to me the challenge of whether to believe the direct revelation or not, removing the subjective element of trusting your interpretation of more subtle events. Proper caution about spiritual matters dictates that we consider the consequences if you are dead wrong on some points, and the dangers are manifest.
 
miguel as not "steadfastly refused to state how" he knows the information.  As a matter of fact, in more than one communication he has given some indication about that; however, let us just take the above message at face value and "run with it".

Such questions bring to mind several Scriptural Passage; to wit:

First...
Matthew 21: 23 And when he was come into the temple, there came to him, as he was teaching, the chief priests and ancients of the people, saying: By what authority dost thou these things? and who hath given thee this authority?

and then

Matthew 12: 24 But the Pharisees hearing it, said: This man casteth not out the devils but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. 25 And Jesus knowing their thoughts, said to them: Every kingdom divided against itself shall be made desolate: and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.  26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself: how then shall his kingdom stand? 27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I by the Spirit of God cast out devils, then is the kingdom of God come upon you.

Very well, we will ask the writer and all others that may share his thoughts - Who would give the knowledge to miguel de Portugal to:

Illuminate for all the Secret Concept of the Holy Trinity which has escaped all theologians until now? An illumination which, if properly used by those who claim to "be Christ on Earth" - a total blasphemy in itself -  would work the necessary miracles in bringing understanding and harmony between Jews, Christians and Muslims (we are not speaking about fanatics since fanaticism is not of God).

Bring to the world the mechanism of why it appears that there is reincarnation - even from a scientific point of view - yet there is not, thus preventing many from making that fatal error?

As part of the above mentioned mechanism, miguel showed, in graphic ways, how Love can free a soul from evil influence.  That is, exactly why Jesus taught us to  Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that calumniate you. [Luke 6: 27-28]

Explain clearly why seeking fortune tellers and similar entities to find out about the future is against God and why.

How to correctly understand Heavenly Messages by having a better grasp of Time and Eternity.

Bring forth the reality of the Catholic Faith.

Highlight the Importance of the Sacraments.

Impress upon the Faithful the need to Pray and Pray More, as well as what they can do about the state of the world.

Explain and promote the value and power of praying the Rosary and praying the Stations of the Cross.

Clearly express the changes that should not be made in the traditions of the Catholic Faith and why.

Remind the world of all key Marian Messages and showing that by ignoring them the world finds itself where it is now.

etc., etc.

The above knowledge was given to miguel de Portugal by the Same One Who told him to announce, as far back as March 19, 2002, that
Rome Has Lost the Faith and Will Soon Become the Seat of the False Christ - which will be ushered by the AntiChrist and his minions.

How that information is transferred - although we have given some indications in the past about the multiple systems used in the transfer - we will not explain it because it will be beyond the comprehension of most, and besides, we must be careful, as Jesus warned us:

Give not that which is holy to dogs; neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turning upon you, they tear you. [Matthew 7:6]

and we know that we have some swine embedded amongst our readership.

What if miguel de Portugal is wrong about about the AntiChrist, you ask? If you have to ask, you could not understand the answer.

This case - Is Closed; we have work to do.

We wonder.... how much of the following will be necessary for the Faithful to wake up to the Ratzinger - Benedict XVI reality:
 

Quotes from: Pope Urges Need for 'Renewed Humanism' 

 
VATICAN CITY (AP) -January 6, 2006- Religious leaders of all faiths must play a role in ensuring that the spiritual and cultural aspects of life are not forgotten as mankind tackles the challenges of globalization, Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday.

In his homily during Mass in St. Peter's Basilica, the pope said recent decades have seen a "challenge to global civilization, where the center can no longer be Europe and not even that which we call the West or the North of the world."

"The need emerged to elaborate a new world political and economic order, but at the same time and above all, a spiritual and cultural one _ that is, renewed humanism," he said.

"At the start of the Third Millennium we find ourselves smack in the middle of this phase of human history, that has been for some time dubbed 'globalization.'"

The pope said that while politicians, scientists and researchers play important roles in the modern world, "today, more than ever, it is necessary to place at their side the leaders of the great non - Christian religious traditions" as well as Christian leaders.

Benedict appeared to be building on a theme often stressed by his predecessor, John Paul II, who worried that modernization was coming at the cost of spirituality.

He made the remarks during the Epiphany Mass, which recalls the journey of the Magi, the three wise men guided by a star to pay homage to the baby Jesus.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:  "Spirituality" does not necessarily mean Christianity or Islam; spirituality is more of a "code word" for the New Age wave as well as Bishop Swing's dream: The United Religion Initiative.

We sincerely thank Ratzinger - Benedict XVI for making the discharge of our function a much easier task. As we have often said: Even satan must serve God, Whom miguel de Portugal strives to serve in spite of his great human limitations.

Do you ever wonder.... why so many people want to see the Marian Apparitions and Messages discredited? Wonder no more!


Published on January 4, 2007

We cannot help but wonder....  why the populace, who seems to be so environmental conscious, has essentially ignore our very recent document regarding the overpopulation of the world. Perhaps we should start "spicing up" our announcements as the tabloid like press (which is essentially most of the press today) does. Something like "Britney and Paris do Las Vegas and how that affect our population growth."

Remember, brethren -We are not "on commission" (God does not "pay" us based on the number of hits); this is being done for your benefit (God "pay" us just to make the information available to you).


Published on January 1, 2007 [Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God]

We cannot help but wonder.... why with so many Catholics "talking Mary" and "talking Rosary" we have had so little traffic in two key Marian Documents that we have On-Line:  Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is unquestionably co-Redemptrix and Mediatrix of All Graces and  Mary, is unquestionably the  Mother of God to anyone who believes in the Most Holy Trinity.

We have great respect for those who do not understand the Catholic teachings  (actually: Realities) of the Divine Motherhood of Mary and the Eucharistic Presence of Jesus, since thair position is due to the fact that they have not been taught those realities; however, but for the Catholics that all they do is "talk Mary", "talk Rosary" and "talk Eucharistic Presence", although we assidiously pray for their conversion, we have great difficulty "swallowing them".

Could it be that we are "catching" something from Heaven? Something like:

 But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, not hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth. [Apocalypse 3:16]


Published on December 30, 2006 [Feast of The Holy Family]

Do you ever wonder.... why those who survive what is to come just prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ must suffer so?

Before we can face God - manifested as such in the Second Coming - our souls must be pure, the purity gained by souls in Purgatory.  Therefore - what we must endure before His Appearance is literally a period of purgation or - Purgatory without the body having died.



Published on December 27, 2006  [Feast of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist]

Do you ever wonder... why humanity is being continually bombarded with Apocalyptic End-of-the-World (not End of These Times BUT End of the World) propaganda like the History Channel is doing this week?

Because satan wishes to bring humanity to the brink of despair and to the expectation that the End of the World is around the corner so that, when the events associated with the End of These Times (NOT of the world) reach a fever pitch, humanity will think that the world is about to end and will desperately grasp at any straws... welcoming the FALSE Christ with open arms!

We continue to warn... but few will heed our calls.... just as it was nearly 2000 years ago, except, that time, only Jerusalem was at stake.... now, it is the whole world.

Trust and believe - All Is Truly Well if, only IF, you bring and place your burdens at the foot the Cross and assume His Gentle Yoke.

Have you ever wondered who God meant him to be when He spoke through the prophet Malachias and said: Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.  And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers: lest I come, and strike the earth with anathema.?

Wonder no more.

Have you ever wonder what God meant when He spoke through the prophet Malachi and said:

 2 And who shall be able to think of the day of his coming? and who shall stand to see him? for he is like a refining fire, and like the fuller's herb: 3 And he shall sit refining and cleansing the silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and shall refine them as gold, and as silver, and they shall offer sacrifices to the Lord in justice. [Malachi 3]

The "sons of Levi" make up the priestly class of the Jews. Therefore, the clergy and Hierarchy of Christianity are the Christian version of the  "sons of Levi".  Now, let us add that Malachi is speaking of  the Second coming of Jesus. Therefore, at the Second Coming "...he shall sit refining and cleansing the silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and shall refine them as gold, and as silver..." so that, once purified,  "...they shall offer sacrifices to the Lord in justice."

Of course, that could be avoided if the Roman Catholic Church would follow our instructions, given in His Most Holy Name. Something they will not do so that the prophesied Crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ - The Church - is fulfilled so that, once purified,  "...they shall offer sacrifices to the Lord in justice."

Do you know the difference between "being tested" by God and "being tempted" by satan?

As we have pointed out elsewhere, the latin and English versions of the well know prayer to Our Father have a major and offensive statement to God.

In those versions - one of them, the Roman Catholic Church official version - we pray (we actually insult God by saying): "...do not lead us into temptation..."

God does not lead His children into temptation; satan leads God's children into temptation.  So that the true Faithful understand the difference between "Test" and "Temptation" we have used a parable utilizing common world situations:

For an individual with a sweet tooth and a weakness for chocolate...

Test: Place before him a double fudge chocolate brownie.

Temptation:  Place before him a double fudge chocolate brownie AND entice him to eat it utilizing many false logical reasons.

For a womanizer...

Test: Place him in contact with a very attractive woman in any kind of social environment - but she does not make a move to catch his sexual attention.

Temptation:  Place him in contact with a very attractive woman in any kind of social environment - but she MAKES A MOVE - M. Lewinski style

If Monica had minded her own business and not raised her dress when Clinton complimented it, she would have been a Test for
Clinton; instead, by raising her dress as a a very graphic enticement she became a Temptation to Clinton.

The Our Father prayer should read instead: "....and do not let us fall prey to temptation..."

Of course, we understand that David S. of Ireland and those who think as he does, will continue to insult God by calling Him a tempter because "...they know the face of the Holy Father but do not know the face of miguel de Portugal".

Do you wonder why.... so many Internet companies offer free software. Wonder no more... Carefully review the information and warning released by the Federal Trade Commission and you will never again consider taking up such "good offers".

Do you wonder why.... it seems that the "good" is the one always suffering and the "bad" seems to always get scot-free?

RC explained it very well:  I feel that this struggle of good vs. evil is far from over and that the "Elect" are going to suffer a major offensive from Satan.  For some reason I feel that Satan has a special interest in their souls and will make a major push to get them.  That is, Satan will strike at the very roots of what they hold dear in life, whether it be spouse, family, money, profession, etc.  Whatever is held dearly will be attacked so that the Elect will be tempted to curse God, much as Job was tested.  In short, I do not think that just going to Church and putting in a few dollars in the collection each week is enough to hold off Satan.  I believe that fasting and prayer, sacrifice and reparation, by us all will be essential to get through all of this.

Amen!

Do you wonder why.... we have stopped talking about the famous Planet X and related matters?  The answer lies in the first part of our Planet X document and, the follow up, in our Notes About Planet X.

That we will be impacted by a comet/asteriod? Of course we will!  The issue that we "keep harping on" is that the level of destruction that will afflict our planet is strictly in our hands if we choose to appeal to God as we have extensively explained in What Can We Do? Part I and II.  Chasing Planets and Comets and little green men with spidery fingers WILL NOT, we repeat, WILL NOT help humanity in any way. Pray and then Pray some more!

Prayer does work. We understand that many people cannot believe it because of the condition of the world is in today in spite of millions of Masses and Rosaries but we repeat: The problem has been the "Shepherds" who have been more interested in self perpetuation and not in Evangelization. Most of the Faithful under their "watchful care" do not even know how to pray! That is precisely why our Heavenly Mother has had to intervene so many times!

You think us wrong?  Take a look at Bosco's life. His prayers were heard by God; his boys prayers were heard by God; his supporters prayers were heard by God - the only ones who did not hear a thing Bosco had to teach was the Vatican! As Pavlov's dog only responded to whatever would announce a pleasant stimulus, the Vatican only responds when they hear the tinkling of coins and the rustle of folding money!
