the post made on July 25, 2010, on our FYI&R (0)
page we stated:
you know that.... the abortion rate in the US
peaked in 1990 and has steadily dropped since? (1) (2)
The U.S. abortion rate has
reached its lowest level in three decades, according to a new report
released on January 2008.
"We don't know why," said study author Rachel Jones, senior
research associate at the Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit group that
focuses on reproductive issues. The findings will be published in the
March issue of the institute's journal, Perspectives on Sexual and
The actual number of abortions dropped to a new low, with
1.2 million abortions in 2005, compared to a high of 1.6 million
abortions in 1990.
M+G+R Foundation comments: "We don't know why," Ms. Jones
admits. However, by an obvious act of Divine Providence, we found what
may very well be the reason for it – in a twenty-year-old file folder
which somehow has survived what feels like "an Eternity tumbling down
Niagara Falls in a barrel" must.
Unfortunately, it will take a day or two before we can
hard-copy documentation so that we may share it with you. (All of our
electronic files were wiped out sometime during the summer - fall of
1992.) In the meantime, drink, not just read, the Gospel reading for
today's Mass - Luke 11: 1-13 (3)
with an emphasis on verses 8-13.
Through what appeared to be "pure chance" miguel
de Portugal came across a long forgotten file that somehow has survived
of his life-on-the-go at the service of God. That was the first sign of
the Hand of Providence.
In the afternoon of the discovery, while in prayer, miguel was inspired
to look at the abortion statistics which would encompass the year 1990,
when the documentation was prepared. This he did on the following
day and what he found resulted in the FYI&R posting reproduced
above. That was the second sign of the Hand of Providence. Miraculously
the abortion rate in the US peaked out in 1990 and started to steadily
decline with no official or scientific reason.
It was then that miguel was moved to publish the information contained
in the long forgotten file as a
reminder to the Faithful that if we do our part, God will do His part
The Hand of Providence was confirmed when miguel noticed the date of
the letter sent to the editor of SOUL Magazine - July 23, 1990. Exactly
20 years - to the day! - before he Providentially ran into the long
folder containing said letter and the rest of the documentation.
For those who are not familiar with miguel's journey.... His conversion
took place in a flash on March 19, 1985 and it was on July 1991 when
God asked him to leave all behind and follow Him. Even in 1991 miguel
had no idea of what plans God had for him; therefore, the letters that
you will be reading date to one
year before Michael left all behind at the call from God and several years before
Michael realized that he was to embody miguel de Portugal.
We have been able to process the contents of the twenty year old folder
and have tried to present the information in the most user-friendly
format that our limited tech-knowledge allows.
The document package is composed of:
(a) A letter to SOUL Magazine letting
them know how Michael planned to promote their sponsored Supernatural
Rescue Mission. (4)
(b) A flier
composed from the SOUL Magazine article promoting the Supernatural
Rescue Mission (5)
letter that would accompany said flier to parish priests and
ecclesiastical authorities. (6)
The documentation has been presented "as is" with very
minor editing: (a) miguel's civil name has been deleted; and
(b) two sentences have been deleted as an act of charity.
It is important that we underscore that these letters accurately
describe our position in 1990 regarding SOUL Magazine and The Blue Army
of Our Lady of Fatima. However, our view of these organizations has
changed since then, due to circumstances and events that became
manifest after 1991. We have explained this matter in another document. (7)
Obviously we cannot determine or claim the effect Michael's
effort had on slowing down abortion in the US. However, we can
resolutely claim, without a shred of a doubt, that the SOUL Magazine's
sponsored Supernatural Rescue Mission was responsible for turning the
abortion tide in the US.
Imagine what could have been accomplished if more people had become
more involved in the Rescue Mission.
This is just another example that proves that what Jesus never tires of
reminding us - as quoted in Luke 11: 1-13 - is simply true!
We just have to believe it so that it can be made manifest.
