Do you wonder.. what all, besides the obvious (1)
, is really behind the
story of the presentation of Jesus at the Temple and the meeting with
Simeon and Anna? (2)
Consider the following.....
No priest, pharisee or scribe
Simeon - representing a devout but regular citizen of Jerusalem -
member of the "laity" - recognized Him.
Anna - representing a cloistered religious but not member on the
priest, scribe and pharisee establishment - recognized Him
Obviously, it is only the ones who have Eyes to See, regardless of
their state - regular citizen or self
consecrated to God -
who will recognize Jesus then, and now.
Statistically speaking, the fraction belonging to the priest, pharisee
and scribe classes who would recognize Jesus, then and now, is
As a bonus - we are also shown that the Holy Spirit of God was already
working on the people of God long before the Pentecost

Do you wonder... why it seems that God simply does not
respond to some of our almost desperate prayers no matter how hard we
In a document (1)
published in the year 2005 we addressed the most common reasons for
unanswered prayers. However, if after reviewing said document one may
in response, paraphrase what a certain ruler [Luke 18:18 - 21]
Him, after Jesus had listed all that was required to possess
everlasting life : All these
things have I done since my conversion, there still is one more thing that
one can do.
He is never a block, we are. However, we may not see what it is that we
are doing to cause the block therefore.... "place the ball in His
court" and, in all sincerity and with a wide open heart, ask Him What is it that I am doing to block Your
generous action and thus grant my request?
If you are sincere - you will soon find out.
One must also remember what we have published in the past in the Divine

Do you wonder... if a communicant may receive Holy Communion
more than once in the same day?
Canon Law (1)
is quite specific.... then vague.... about it; actually, it depends
greatly on the circumstances. In the simplest of cases - a person who
is not in danger of death - and
...who has already received the Most Holy Eucharist can receive it a
second time on the same day only within
the eucharistic celebration in
which the person participates.
That is, within two eucharistic celebrations (two Masses); not one
eucharistic celebration (one Mass) and a communion service.

Do you wonder..., if satan's First Act in his war against
humanity was to convince Eve to eat the forbidden fruit so that
humanity, Biblically represented by Adam and Eve,
would become like (equal to) God, then, what was his Last (yes, we have
) Act which will
bring These Times to a thundering close?
Let us "take it from the top". The last hope for humanity - to reverse
the apparently unstoppable slide into the abyss - was the integrity of
the family. A well-ordered family produces the citizens who, one
step at a time, would change society, and thus the world. A family of
monotheistic believers - living their faith without fanaticism - would
citizens who could freely, constructively and productively interact
with each other and work toward a just world.
satan (who, as the saying goes, "was not born yesterday") knew this. he
also knew exactly what to do to make that fortress of values collapse
regardless of the faith they professed. satan mused.... if it worked
well the first time.... they (women) will fall for it
again first, with men, just as Adam did, following suit.
Before the fall, mankind "had it all" -
we mean All!
archeological and anthropological finds continue to confirm that when
man went from a "happy go lucky" nomadic hunter to a "buckled down"
farm worker, exactly the misery which God announced, happened:
because thou ...hast eaten of the tree, whereof I
commanded thee that thou shouldst not eat, cursed is the earth in thy work;
with labour and toil shalt thou eat thereof all the days of thy life.
18 Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou
shalt eat the herbs of the earth. 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt
thou eat bread till thou return to the earth, out of which thou wast
taken: [Genesis 3]
In the New Testament, Jesus (and many of His Apostles) explained how a
male-female relationship should work for the benefit of a spiritually
healthy family. It was not a
matter of who, man or woman, was better! (As we have explained in a
when all is said and done women were the Crown of Creation. It is a
woman, not a man, Who wields the greatest power in the Universe;
whatever that perfect Daughter, Spouse and Mother, Mary, asks from the
Divine and Most Holy Trinity, She will obtain! More power than
that does not exist.)
God has given us the "instruction book" so that relations between men
and women would work perfectly according to His Plan. Of course, women
must be equal before the law and have equal opportunities to fulfill
her potential – but this is to be her full potential as a woman
not as a
copy of a man. Had we been obedient to God's plan, a woman would be
someone who, while not being titular "head of the household," could
manage to obtain all that her exquisite female instincts told her were
necessary for the good of the entire family (just as Mary
all humanity, and just as Esther (2)
interceded to save her
race from extermination).
Against this Divine teaching, satan has been carrying out his
counter-strategy. Taking advantage of real abuses against women in
certain social environments, satan started his campaign against the
alleged inequality of the sexes. he began selling to women the idea
that they could be equal to men; the Genesis parallel had been selling
the idea that mankind could be equal to God. Thus began radical
feminism, a rebellion against the Divine reality that each sex was
created specifically by God for a function.
As the feminist revolt progressed, brassieres went up in flames, make
love and not war
became the password and, worst of all, the
fell prey to this trap lost an intangible and priceless attribute
(which I can feel and understand, but simply cannot fully explain) that
made them the absolutely precious creature that they were created to be.
So, dear brethren, the radical feminist revolt - which started in the
US and western Europe in the 1800s, and has spread worldwide since then
- was the Second - and we assure you - final great Fall of humanity
before the End of These Times.
That claim may seem exaggerated, but the awful spiritual toll taken
worldwide by radical feminism may be gauged by the global death toll
resulting from active promotion of legal and "morally justified"
abortion. The holocaust of the unborn is one of the great mass
murders of history. In the US alone, 50 million unborn babies have been
slain since abortion was made legal nationwide in 1973. Worldwide,
all pregnancies end in abortion, for a global death toll of more than
40 million per year. (3)
We can give radical feminism the credit for most of these deaths.
To put it crudely, radical feminism is a deadly ideology, taking a toll
in lives which amply surpasses Nazism and Communism.
Given humanity's track record of falling for the same satanic tricks
over and over again, God will now provide the definitive correction to
the malady of the human race. He (not man!) will repeat what He did in
what we know as Noah's Flood; this time, just as He promised (4)
, without using water.
May God have Mercy on His Elect!

Do you wonder... why those bio- and socio- "illuminated
scientists" waste so much ink and (hot) air explaining that all deities
are man-made since humans are born with "a need" to have deities upon
which place their faith?
In plain English: They claim - and go to incredible lengths to do so -
that we manufacture God or many gods because we are bio-genetically
programmed for that.
They fail to see that such being a universal human trait - just like
eating and breathing - such "bio-programming" must be imperative for a
Our readers know that we do not have the slightest doubt about the
reality of God; as a matter of fact - we just do not believe in God, we
know God! However, let us play "pin the tail on the donkey...."
Even if God or many gods are non-existent - Being that some level of
faith in the unseen is as old as man itself.... Wouldn't the logical
behavior by the "illuminated ones" be to ensure that the God or many
gods promoted by "this" or "that" religion are as beneficial for the
mental and physical health of the humans.... just as the Department of
Health and Agriculture guidelines insure safe food?
Wouldn't the persistent effort to destroy the little true and healthy
faith left in the world be the equivalent of a worldwide campaign to
It is becoming more evident every day that the "illuminated ones" are
no more than the human equivalent of the "black holes" found in space.

Do you wonder... if as many (incorrectly) claim that the
Chair of Peter is vacant since the death of Pius XII, and the "rule of
the law" is that the College of Cardinals is the only body that can
elect the next Successor of Peter, and the last Cardinal named by Pius
XII is probably long dead.... then, who could elect the next legitimate
(by their account) Successor of Peter after Pius XII?
We are sure than in some of the "cook books" of the Vatican Cafeteria,
someone must have found a "long lost recipe" that could be used to
prepare such "dish".
[We publish this just to illustrate the total incoherence of the many
claims made by the anti Vatican II groups (1)

Do you wonder... if God allowed the recent massive floods in
Africa, already forgotten due to the massive destruction caused by
earthquakes and tsunamis in the Pacific region as a punishment for the
people in those regions?
Once again, we find the answer in the Holy Scriptures....
there were present, at that very time, some that told him of the
Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 And he answering, said to them: Think you that these Galileans were
sinners above all the men of Galilee, because they suffered such things?
3 No, I say to you: but unless you shall do penance, you shall all
likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen upon whom the tower fell in Siloe,
and slew them: think you, that they also were debtors above all the men
that dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 No, I say to you; but except you do penance,
you shall all likewise perish. [Luke 13]
Do notice the difference He
makes between enduring suffering
as the result of sinful behavior and avoiding
suffering as the result of "doing penance" for oneself and on
behalf of others as He expects us to do.

Do you ever wonder... when the following passages were added
to the Gospel of Luke, ch. 9?
And there entered a thought into them, which of them should be greater.
47 But Jesus seeing the thoughts of their heart, took a child and set
him by him, 48 And said to them: Whosoever shall receive this child in
my name, receiveth me; and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth him
that sent me. For he that is the lesser among you all, he is the
And John, answering, said: Master, we saw a certain man casting out
devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with
us. 50 And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not; for he that is not
against you, is for you.
And it came to pass, when the days of his assumption were
accomplishing, that he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52
And he sent messengers before his face; and going, they entered into a
city of the Samaritans, to prepare for him. 53 And they received him
not, because his face was of one going to Jerusalem. 54 And when his
disciples James and John had seen this, they said: Lord, wilt thou that
we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them? 55 And
turning, he rebuked them, saying: You know not of what spirit you are.
Anyone who would
objectively study the history of Christianity and Catholicism in
particular, would have to assume that they were introduced during
the much maligned (2)
Second Vatican Council.
Why, we ask in God's Name, such fundamental truths were trampled over
for about 1600 years, which, with among others, treated likewise,
caused the complete failure
of the Evangelization Jesus Christ
entrusted the Church which claims to represent Him?
Do not ever forget the above so that you may understand the "Why?" of
what He will allow
upon it. (2)
