Letters/Questions - Addressed on  April 2008

You are invited to be an instrument in keeping this Ministry active.
 It is now in your hands to do so!

From (Mrs.) IW @ USA - Published on April 30th, 2008

Hello, Dear Miguel,
This is a note of appreciation for suggestions, suggestions, suggestions, and more suggestions (kind and patient--and I'm sure with prayers) that I might benefit from addressing my codependency (1) issues with a program like Al-Anon and to give you a brief update.

I'd been waiting for some landmark happening to do so, but now see that it does not work that way, but is more of a daily awakening and addressing things as they come, rather than something with a finish line.
It has been about 6 months now that I have been attending as faithfully as possible and trying to "work the program."  I recognize myself in so many of the disordered behaviors discussed/read about and also those from the speakers, some of whom are recovering alcoholics/AA members.

It has caused me some pain and sadness to face what I learn.  It has also really taken me by surprise--since this is what's been the "normal" all of my life. I must have been in deep, dark, double denial, and even denial of denial.
(2)  (3)   But, sure enough, even so long as 20 years ago, someone who was trying to help me had passed along reading material about this very subject.  My point is, I see how God had been offering the help (4)  for such a long time--I was just to blind to see that or recognize His action.
I am now making notes in a journal to put together my personal inventory--good and bad--which puts me, by the books, at Step 4 of the 12 Step Program, but have to keep backtracking upon seeing certain ways that I've not turned over to God.

He is very good to walk with me
(5) through this, though, and to hold my hand and to help me uncover my eyes when I am afraid to look at myself.  And in the meanwhile and as lovely consolation, many other of His Truths that you write about seem that much clearer--even the beloved Divine Instructions (6)  seem sweeter and more personal and applicable!
I am trying not to put any timetables on the process and just keep moving forward--but hope, with His help, to make the amends that matter the most.  His Will be done, and That will be the correct results for me.  For now, life seems to be going more smoothly, with less distress and that handled with less drama.
Although Al-Anon tells me to concentrate on my own self, there are times when I think most in the "developed" world could use this least the step where we "make a decision to turn our wills and lives over to the care of God," (7)  but I guess that's where the coming times (8)  will bring us.  God knew I needed a head start...and I'm very grateful for His special care.
Thank you, too, for helping me to get the message and for your concern.  I'll continue to pray for you and the work of The M+G+R Foundation and, especially, that all those you should reach will be soon.

(Mrs.) IW

Thank you for sharing the good news.

We KNOW that you are making progress because you found one of the main keys of life: Life is more of a daily awakening and addressing things as they come, rather than something with a finish line.

Being that life truly has only one purpose - serve God by fulfilling the Will for which He placed us here -once we focus on the journey, the right  "finish line" will just show up when the time is right.

A world parallel to that concept.... When miguel  studied "the four R's" all the way through the University years - his objective was to learn as much as I could since all interested him. Logically, the resulting grades landed for him full  scholarships for graduate school in the likes of Princeton and U of C at Berkeley.

That is why people, who are so concerned about making sure that they will enjoy the joys of Heaven, while disregarding His needs for us to attend in this world, will never make it.

Notice that most of the prayers at Mass are always geared for that: Making sure that they will enjoy the joys of Heaven and not asking to be transform into the creature that would be of most service to Him.

We then must presume that God is to call "The Kelly Girls" form Kelly Services to get done here what we were supposed to do in the first place!

We really enjoyed your statement :  I must have been in deep, dark, double denial, and even denial of denial.

Enjoy? You may ask! Yes, because when you realized that is when you truly unmasked satan.

Many continued Blessings!

Peace to You!

I sent the referenced message (1) to everyone I knew and received only one response thanking me.

I also sent this to where they accept public emails. They did not even put it on their web page.

It is truly sad they will keep such valuable information out of the hands of the misguided faithful.

I will keep sending it to them until they block my email address just to see this for everyone else to see.

God Bless You miguel.


Your actions truly Glorify God! You have done, and continue to do, what God expects us to do - lead to the water all within our reach. All of us would like all of them to drink, BUT the sad truth is that only a small fraction will partake of the information which will make a difference for them in their very near future.

Let us all together console ourselves as Jesus did to the disciples he walked with on the way to Emmaus. [Luke 24: 13-29]

1. In spite of the awesome miracles Jesus performed, when the chips were down, most turned their backs on Him - they did not believe in Him nor what He said.  The had "just gone for the free ride" of food, healings and resurrections. i.e. [ Amen, amen I say to you, you seek me, not because you have seen miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled. John 6:26]

2. When Stephen was speaking to the council the truths about Jesus  they "......crying out with a loud voice, stopped their ears, and with one accord ran violently upon him.  And casting him forth without the city, they stoned him;" [Acts 7:56-57]

3. And of course - the apparent "Grand Finale": "....when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast, that ascendeth out of the abyss, shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their bodies shall lie in the streets of the great city, which is called spiritually, Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord also was crucified. 9 And they of the tribes, and peoples, and tongues, and nations, shall see their bodies for three days and a half: and they shall not suffer their bodies to be laid in sepulchres. 10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry: and shall send gifts one to another, because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt upon the earth." [Rev. 11]

Jesus kept going up to Golgotha enduring the pain of rejection of most - a pain which was greater than the physical pain - because He knew that - without regard to the physical appearances - His effort and suffering were not in vain. Therefore - let us never forget that example and pick up our cross [the fulfillment of His plan for each one of us] and follow Him.

(1) Referenced message -

May the Peace of God be upon you, dear brothers and sisters!

We have a unique and special request of you.

What makes this request "unique and special" is that I do not think that we have ever requested you - point blank - to make a concerted effort

This extraordinary request matches the extraordinary circumstances: The visit of Benedict XVI to the US and the seemingly never ending stream of apologies and emotional words expressing great contrition for the sexual abuse within the US Catholic Church.

The Message

This effusive public display of  contrition - as you must already know - was a carefully staged, and quite hollow, event. All of those words had been carefully written in Rome long before his arrival in the US. The script, so to speak, for a well planned and choreographed Mea Culpa

Yesterday's New York Times (1) brought to mind the obscenity of such behavior. In the headline we read that:  Vatican Hints at Changes in Church Laws on Abuse

Two brief quotes from the article are:
to share information with as many people as you could possibly do. mega-event.
After three days in which Pope Benedict XVI has persistently addressed the scandal of child sexual abuse by priests, Cardinal William J. Levada said on Friday that the church was considering changes to the canon laws that govern how it handles such cases.
The comments by the cardinal (William J. Levada), who heads the Vatican office that rules on cases of sexual abuse that are forwarded to Rome by bishops throughout the world, were apparently spontaneous, and came in response to questions from three reporters as he left a luncheon in New York given by Time magazine.
Do you remember who Cardinal Levada is and what is his background?
ArchBishop Levada's 'Holy' Record

 For those who are not familiar with US Law and customs - if what has been published by Levada in the main line press were not true, a simple phone call from the Archdiocese's attorneys would have the offensive and defaming statements removed immediately from the public domain. They have been on, some of them since the year 2002, and the remain available to one and all.
ArchBishop Levada Trajectory - Details

Archbishop William J. Levada is getting a big promotion, courtesy of Benedict XVI. Levada is moving from the Archdiocese of San Francisco to become the  Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) - Benedict's former position.

It was Benedict XVI who appointed Levada to the position he held as Cardinal Ratzinger - Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a position which, as you read above, has a major role in the handling of the complaints that reach Rome regarding clerical sexual abuse .  Therefore, Ratzinger - Benedict XVI - was well aware of what was going on in the US Catholic Church and did nothing about it.

What we are seeing here is an outrageous mockery of the innocent Faithful of the US who are not aware of the truth behind the scenes - and another grave offense to God.

We ask you: Who, if not a satan-guided soul, would participate in such a sick charade? 

Please get this information out as far as wide as you can. If people do not want to believe that this man is the AntiChrist - fine; at least they should be fully aware of how he is mocking the Faithful.

May God Bless your every effort in assisting those members of the Elect whose eyes and ears are still closed, and who, because of that, will suffer greatly unless they are opened with black and white irrefutable facts.

We can do so much - but the rest must be done by those who have already Seen and Heard.

From ZM @ Ukraine - Published on April 25th, 2008 [Feast of St. Mark]   


Last Friday I watched Zeitgeist movie. Well - even with background knowledge of many facts covered in this movie, the Big Picture shown was so real and shocking.

Movie consists of 3 parts: Religion, 911 Attack and Economy.

In first part authors try to prove that all world religions are man made and conclude it stating that Jesus Christ was imaginary figure, not a real person. This part is hardly scientific because even without deep knowledge of other non monotheistic world religions "concentration" around December 25 (1) is very questionable and for example only few hundred years ago it was November 7 (and actually Eastern Church still uses old calendar).

I think without any problems you can find many holes in this theory but for "weak" on Faith this part can be damaging, its a-la Da Vinci Code (2) so I can't recommend it easily to everybody.

In the second part authors try to prove that 911 was planned and executed by government, with a lot of facts and proofs.

In the third part authors try to show that banks and "elite" were behind every war in 20th century - WW I, WW II, Vietnam, etc.

Even if some of the facts cannot be proved or they are wrong I think this movie can add more new information to "Illuminati", "NWO" and "conspiracy" folders.

But again, first part in my opinion is a bit dangerous for unprepared minds.

Another potential problem that I see with this movie is that you can download it for free or order DVD if you like to have a "hard" copy.

Best Regards,


A later Post Script from ZM: After watching trailer of Zeitgeist II (ZEITGEIST - ADDENDUM) my opinion about movie has changed. It seems that second movie will have more anti-religious tones and more concrete calls to anarchy. So Part I of this movie is not coincidental but has its own purpose and, together with some factual information from parts 2 and 3, it becomes the "payload" authors try to send to masses.

Thank you for sharing your views on the movie,  Post Script included!

Someone from New Zealand sent us a downloaded DVD of the film. Two or three minutes into viewing it God instructed miguel to cease and desist viewing it - so he did.

Obviously it must be a ready-mix of fact and fiction showing in "black and white" many of the things that we have said for years: The visual impact is always far stronger than the reading impact - with the audio impact being somewhere in between.

We would not recommend it because the fictional components - even in the second and third part - will have an impact on how the Elect will react as the gruesome events unfold.

Although we did not view it - precisely because miguel knows why God blocked him from viewing it - we came make that recommendation with a very high degree of certainty.

Thank you for the opportunity to issue this warning about it.

I have just read that Federico Mayor Zamora was the head of UNESCO from 1987 to 1999, and has been part of the Gorbachev camp.  Here's the stunner:  According to this on-line biography, Mayor is a member of OD.
As the web page (1) says, "Federico Mayor is a long-term member of the ultra-Catholic Opus Dei".
If this is true (and I am not certain of the credibility of this source page), then it points to a clear link between Opus Dei and the left-wing New World Order, just as Opus Dei is part of the plans for the right-wing New World Order.
This page, then, was as much of a jaw-dropper as the Crisis magazine article of 2002 (2), wherein Deal Hudson threw soft questions at Gorbachev, and Gorbachev blamed President Clinton for delaying the New World Order for 10 years.

A.  Your amazement is logical and your conclusion is indeed correct. Federico Mayor is a long-term member of Opus Dei. (3)

It is well know - and even reported by a friend of Opus Dei
(4) - that they will strike an alliance with anyone who can assist their cause at that particular moment.  As we have shown, the "theology" they live by is not of God in spite of the lip service they give to their mission.

As we have also reported
(5) - cracks are already showing in the make-believe monolith of New World Order promoters.  They help each other along the way while secretly keeping in mind that - in the end - it is their version that will make it trough.  As an act of charity we pleaded with the power behind John Paul II's throne (6) - Joaquin Navarro-Valls, his spokesman and media manipulator (7).

From NS @ US - Published on April 18th, 2008

 I have been learning about the Catholic faith.  I am drawn to the universal history of the faith and the beautiful morality of the faith.  However, my mentor says that the Vatican has been taken over by the impostors already.  He is in a traditionalist chapel that believes the Vatican is evil now.

According to him:

In 1963 Cardinal Joseph Siri received the necessary votes, but before he could be asked whether he would accept, the enemies of the Church intervened, threatening persecution in the Communist countries and possibly the use of nuclear weapon on Rome.  Siri merely replied - "vote again".  However, since this reply was under duress, it was not a free act and therefore he had not resigned his claim to the Papacy.  And thus the subsequent election of Montini as Paul VI was invalid, which invalidates the decrees of Vatican II, as well as the Novus Ordo Missae, etc.

And then after Montini died -  in both 1978 conclaves - Cardinal Siri was again elected and again prevented from answering freely whether or not he accepted.    And thus the Catholic church is now gone, and taken over by evil and all the Popes since 1963 are anti-popes.
I do not see a lot of love in his chapel.  There is backbiting and other things that are not the fruit of the spirit.  He says to go into a regular Catholic church today is a bad thing.
He says the real pope will manifest and lead the church, but no real pope has appeared since 1963.
I was drawn to your website due to the sweetness of your spirit and your wisdom.
I am confused and don't know who to trust or where to turn.
Did the take over of the church already happen?  Was it in 1963?  Was Cardinal Joseph Siri the real pope?  Is the Novus Ordo mass evil?  Is there still a Catholic Church somewhere, but not in Rome?  Was Vatican II a takeover by the evil ones to destroy the real mass?  Was Vatican II the enemy taking over the church?
I am so confused, can you please help me?

Your confusion is quite logical.

First of all, before we embark in a lengthier explanation, we recommend that you review the following documents which will begin to shed some light upon the darkness you feel -and rightfully so -  that is oppressing you:

A different view of John XXIII and Paul VI and a key purpose their Pontificates had. (1)   

A view of what could be considered the John Paul II Pontificate divided in two distinct parts - and why.  (2)   

Our position - support and endorsement - regarding the Catholic Faith.  (3)   

St. John Bosco's trajectory will demonstrate the beauty of the Catholic Faith and that it works when lived as Jesus taught us and regardless of the level of flaws within its Administration.  (4)   

Even the Muslim Qur'an insists in obedience to the Word of God - Jesus. (5)       

Whose role is Benedict XVI playing now? (6)  He even wears Prada shoes - no joke!  

The above material may raise a question in your soul - "How come the Faith is Holy and Pure and the Administration of the Church has been already judged and condemned by God?"
(7) You must understand that even satan must serve God.  God is above all and Rules Supremely.

Many people will then ask - "Why this or that calamity happened if God Rules Supremely?" The answer is crystal clear - once, of course, God reveals it.

We pray that the dark clouds will begin to scatter and the light that you are seeking - that of Jesus Christ - starts coming in as you review the documents cited above.

Back to Cardinal Joseph Siri 
(9) - Think of this, considering the transparency of the Vatican in the second half of the 20th Century, as compared to the opacity of the prior centuries, how many times could that have happened before 1963?  Which would mean that: If the legitimate Papal succession was broken because of the situation Siri faced - then it was broken centuries ago and all Popes since then, including Pius XII, would be as invalid a John XXIII and Paul VI.

Conclusion:  If one is to believe the Siri situation - it really does not matter now since there must not have been a successor of Peter in Rome for centuries.

Now, let us look at it from a different perspective - the perspective that "even satan must serve God".

If memory does not fail miguel, the election of Paul VI, and his Papacy,  just did not turn out as expected by those who planned it.

It was said that his election was a forced issue so that, counting on the individual Cardinal Montini may have been up to then, the Church would easily be  hijacked by evil. However, somehow, once Montini became Pope  "he became a different person".... to the point of declaring Mary, Mother of the Church at a time that evil forces within the Church were escorting "Mary out the door."

He himself announced that the smoke of satan had entered the Church. Thus - even if the Siri story is correct, God stepped in and made Paul VI "His man".

Regarding Mass - What is important is that it is offered essentially as the Vatican Missal instructs - Tridentine or Novus Ordo.  With the key part being that the Transubstantiation is done correctly
(10).  That Benedict XVI is the AntiChrist - Not a problem.... unless he orders the debasing of the Mass by changing it so that the Eucharist would be ineffective.  When the time to pray for the Pope comes around during Mass - just replace him in your prayer for all Patriarchs of the Catholic Faith.  Benedict XVI may be the AntiChrist but God IS GOD and He will not allow those who seek Him in earnest unprotected.

If the chapel and/or parish you frequent is devoid of love.... then, God is not there.  Seek Him where there is Love while keeping in mind that "Love" does not mean that "all goes"....  
Dearly beloved, let us love one another, for charity is of God. And every one that loveth, is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God: for God is charity.  [ 1 John 4: 7-8]

We pray that we have been of assistance in helping you find the way Home - the right Home; the Father's Home.

On May 14 Israel will celebrate 60 years of independence. This fact alone is significant, but there is also another plane to it.

I can't remember exact source of information but in Protestant circles Matthew 24:32-34

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

has yet another plane. In Bible Israel is often compared with a Fig tree. Biblical "generation" is often regarded as 60 years ( I can't remember the source of information).

So, putting it all into one piece, some Protestants see Matthew 24:32-34 as: People who witnessed creation of state of Israel will still be alive during the beginning of Tribulation (i.e. Sequence).

This whole thing is not serious enough - there are much more bigger signs than this one and actually it can be wrong or misleading, like for example Rapture, but I think it is interesting enough to let you know about it.

Best Regards and Wishes,


Thank you or bringing this to our attention.  It is important and we will explain why. According to a source (1), the "Biblical generation" may be viewed as follows: 

 A generation, as outlined in the Scriptures, was from the age of twenty years old and upward. Add forty years, and we come to sixty years old. From the age of twenty to sixty was considered as a generation.



A biblical generation has been shown to be forty years. It can (in some cases) also be from the age of twenty years to sixty years. It is written AND THY ESTIMATION SHALL BE OF THE MALE FROM TWENTY YEARS OLD EVEN UNTO SIXTY YEARS OLD - Leviticus 27:3.

Some prophecy scholars believe the countdown of the generation began at Israel's rebirth (May 14, 1948). This would appear to be supported by Scripture. Others believe the countdown began when Israel regained all of the city of Jerusalem (June 1967).

 Then there is the question: Should the 40 year generation be figured from 0 or the age of 20?

Other prophecy scholars may consider that the generation could, in some cases, be 70 or 80 years. It is written, Psalm 90:10 - THE DAYS OF OUR YEARS ARE THREESCORE YEARS AND TEN (70 years); AND IF BY REASON OF STRENGTH THEY BE FOURSCORE YEARS (80 years), YET IS THEIR STRENGTH LABOR AND SORROW; FOR IT IS SOON CUT OFF, AND WE FLY AWAY.

All things considered, we can only say that we are in a locked countdown. Israel has been reborn as was prophesied. We are now in the latter years - Ezekiel 38:8.

We are in the generation in which the Rapture will occur, followed by the man of sin coming forth (known as the Antichrist). He will confirm a covenant with Israel and others which begins the Tribulation  Dan 9:27. After the Tribulation of those days, Armageddon explodes. Jesus Christ returns to this earth with power and great glory. We cannot say what year it will be. We can say, 1 Thessalonias 5:6 - THEREFORE LET US NOT SLEEP, AS DO OTHERS; BUT LET US WATCH AND BE SOBER. Be ready, for it will be soon. We are to occupy till He returns  Luke 19:13.     

What makes this important is that certain Evangelical Circles believe that God need their help  (2) to set up the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Since Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit man has wanted to "Play God" - What a fool!  Therefore - if you have a  group of "Evangelicals" (3) who have decided that 60 years is the exact figure for a Biblical Generation, they may indeed try something to trigger the beginning of the Tribulations "before the end of said generation".

Their surprise will be great when the Rapture does not come at the beginning of the Tribulations but instead, at the bitter end when God turns on the "final spin cycle" of the Apocalypse  - Step No. 15 (4).  What a rude awakening  those who remain alive after Step No. 1  will have!

Once again, thank you for your valuable contribution.

(2) God uses man - as He did from time immemorial - to execute His designs.  Moses being the most popular instrument. We can tell you - first hand - how it works.

God has moved miguel de Portugal to take actions in His Name [action = communications to world or church leaders; pronouncements at specific places; etc. (never destructive physical action)] which have had tremendous impact.  Impact that most of you are aware of but cannot connect to m de P (nor is necessary, since m de P is not running a popularity contest nor running for office).

In most cases, m de P had no idea of what the ultimate purpose of the action in question was to be nor the tremendous impact - on a worldwide scale - that it would have.  Why?  Because it is not his business.  The Creation is God's and, as prophecies must be fulfilled, He will use His gofers to "make it happen" for the Glory MUST ALWAYS be of God - never of man.  Generally, the only "credit" man can claim is almost destroying God's creation through his abysmal stupidity (= his disobedience to God).

Evangelicals in quotation marks because
anyone who pretends to "play God" is influenced by satan.  It does not matter if they use the word "Jesus" in every other sentence. We say "word" because to them it is only a word to be used to advance their plans and not the Holiest of Names before every knee should (and will!) bend.  If they knew that, they would not pretend to act as if they were God.  We must pray for them because many have been misled by their leaders and God demands that we come to their assistance through prayers - not with guns and knifes.

Following is an article (1) re: Knights of Malta.   I do not recall your mention of this group but they seem every bit as secretive and involved as Opus Dei.

Peace be with you.

On March 19th we sent to you the following private note acknowledging receipt of your communication:

As the saying goes: They are involved with each other "up to their  eyebrows"

It has not been the Will of God yet that we address this issue.  Will review the forwarded story as  time allows.

God made the opportunity [time] so that we could review the entire article (1). Our comments follow:

(a) We do not know the author nor the source [Raiders Network]
(b) It would be time consuming to double check the facts for accuracy even though they provide extensive references

Nonetheless.... being fully aware of what will take place (2), the parties involved, their deranged [satanic] logic.... if we were to write a script for a movie illustrating what is to come, what the article depicts is, conceptually, accurate enough.

Yes... it is that bad. That is why we do not stop exhorting the Elect to prayer since nothing else can impact that "evil steamroller".... it is not that I am on commission with Heaven and I get a percentage of all prayers offered....

I was just listening to the news and they were talking about Pope Benedict coming to Washington DC.

They were saying although Pope  Benedict has been pope for only 3 years he draws larger crowds than  Pope John Paul II.  Why?  Because "he is so shy and a shy pope is more  mysterious".

Regarding your posting on "Did you know that....? dated April 10 (*)

The Daily Mash (the publication that you quoted) …is just satire, as I found out once I linked to the article you posted, couldn't believe it was true and searched the internet about it. Here's what I found:

The Daily Mash "The Daily Mash is a satirical news website which exposes the absurdities of modern life to rigorous scrutiny with "hilarious results" (citation needed here - ed). It targets the bores and mediocrity's who run our world, along with anyone in the arena of politics, culture and society who takes themselves too seriously. [Underlining by The M+G+R Foundation]

Thanks be to God!

I had friends, however, who gave their twin toddlers Benadryl every night because they wouldn't sleep through the night. “Time for your bennie,” they'd say, while preparing the medicine spoon full of the pink liquid… That was truly shocking, but I guess sleep-deprived parents can justify a lot. And, as I tell my children when I notice I'm being perhaps too critical, “Boy, it's hard being perfect.”

Grace and peace to you all, and God bless you for your tireless efforts.

(2) Ah, yes.... miguel's "Alternative Reality" keeps rearing its ugly head while the already programmed zombie-like masses denies it at a horrendous price.

(Mrs.) IW

Thank you for your research and kind words.

We also wish to Thank You! for confirming, with your first hand story, that what appears to be a satire truly reflects a sad and sick reality.

Therefore, in the end, you confirmed for our readers that the statement: 
Ah, yes.... miguel's "Alternative Reality" keeps rearing its ugly head while the already programmed zombie-like masses denies it at a horrendous price continues to hold true and will until the end.

Regarding your statement: “Boy, it's hard being perfect.”  We would like to take this opportunity to remind all that: It is impossible to be perfect; all we can do is try to be Perfect as the Father is Perfect [Matthew 5:48].

Of course that is also hard - frankly - it is impossible for man; With men it is impossible; but not with God: for all things are possible with God. [Mark 10:27]

World War III and Worse?

The Fatima Crusader Interviews Father Paul Kramer


Many Catholics remember the startlingly candid remarks of Mother Angelica on the Eternal Word Television Network concerning the vision of the Third Secret disclosed by the Vatican on June 26, 2000. Mother Angelica said to her national television audience on May 16, 2001:

As for the Secret, I happen to be one of those individuals who thinks we didn't get the whole thing … Because I think it's scary....


A. Mother Angelica and m de P were quite close - as we can prove with letters if we ever had to - at one time, before the "friends" of the  Opus Dei took over EWTN and, in effect, "sent her packing". It was for that independence shown above that she was muzzled as much as they could while "milking" her name and followers for "all it was worth".

Now, of course, the Fatima Crusader - about whom we have written recently
(1) - do not want to lose out on this either; after all, it is like politicians:  They do and say whatever will fill their coffers.

As you know, we have addressed this issue quite extensively (2) - thus - your thinking of us when you read that.

Thank you for calling to our attention how others are making money "hand over fist" with what we publish in the Name of God.  Fortunately, our treasure is where moth cannot corrupt it nor thief steal it... [Luke 12:33]
(3)  and we have an Eternity to enjoy it while Praising God for having saved a wretch like me.

From miguel de Portugal @ World - Published on April 1st, 2008

On March 31st we requested through the Public Forum - Part II (1) feedback regarding the preference of e-correspondence alerts over the Did You Know That....? page (2).  As the members of The M+G+R Foundation Family well know,  we try to follow the clear guidance from God regarding how we conduct our affairs and very seldom "look for a vote".  Why this time?

The greatest enemy of anyone who truly wishes to serve God as He Wills, and certainly deserves, is Self.

That is, personal preferences masking themselves as the Will of God (3).  In this particular case we could have had undue interference from Self by making a decision on behalf of our readers; a decision which responded to a never manifested request to minimize mailings.

satan was prompt to throw some "sand into the spiritual eyes" by making the Did You Know That....? page the most visited page of our Domain. Was the decision a success? It appeared so yet... there was a nagging feeling within m de P that his decision to curtail the e-correspondence was really not based on the Will of God.

Thus, we asked Him to speak through you... and "Speak He did!"

We will resume the customary level of e-correspondence while at the same time keeping the Did You Know That....? page active so that those who are not in our lists have an opportunity to read certain information which otherwise they would not. [After all - someone must be making that page the most read of the Domain.]

We thank all those who wrote in His Name. Two individuals wrote with a logic aligned with - less e-correspondence in favor of the Did You Know That....? page. Following is an edited example:

My preference to communicate the "Did you know that..." is via your M+G+R web site instead of e-mail.  Why?  If we are interested (as moved by God's Holy Spirit) and crave to look for it, we will go to that "Did you know..." page.  Sending via e-mail is like forcing the contents into people's throats. Anyway, when you have e-messages, it's there to click on it.  But for those who are focused on His Will will look for it and knock, then it shall be opened.

To which He responded:

(a) An e-correspondence sent can be deleted without even opening it, whereas an e-correspondence that was never sent cannot be read; and
(b) At a time when most are under so much pressure from world related matters [due to individual pressing personal situations such as losing one's home, changing or losing one's job, raising children in a very dark world, etc.] , it is very easy to lose one's focus on the only One Who can help us and, logically, remembering to visit a certain page in the internet may have been unconsciously pushed down in the list of priorities.

Indeed He said:

Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. [Matthew 7:7]

However, for the Apocalyptic times He also said:

 Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my voice, and open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that shall overcome, I will give to sit with me in my throne: as I also have overcome, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. [Revelations 3: 20-22]

Who is miguel de Portugal to prevent His voice from being heard considering the consequences that such action carry?

He also clearly reminded us:

The servant is not greater than his master...  [John 15:20]

The servant is not greater than his lord; neither is the apostle greater than he that sent him. [John 13:16]

From the position of being nothing more than a simple "gofer",  I sincerely thank all who wrote to "set me straight!

(3)  Discerning the Will of God

From (Mr.) IW @ USA - Published on March 31st, 2008

Several weeks ago, in an e-mail (or perhaps in one of the Web postings on your site), you said that the outcome of the Presidential election would reflect God's perfect Will.  It seemed to me that you also said that there actions of the new President would be in accord with God's perfect Will.  From this, some questions and further thoughts arose for me.
(I) Does this mean that Step One of the sequence (1) has been delayed until after January 20, 2009 - and perhaps long enough for the actions and policies of the new President to have a effect?  If so, that might mean that the Sequence might not begin until March or April of 2009, or later.

A. The outcome of the election will be according to the perfect Will of God. We did not say "next President" which leaves the situation open to interpretation by all. Remember - as we pray the suffering may be mitigated, therefore the situation is all fluid.

(II) You have said that God's perfect Will can include disastrous events, such as the 2004 Tsunami (2) ... and Noah's Flood.  It is a sobering reminder that God's perfect Will includes justice and judgment (3) as well as mercy (4).  Also, from the earthly perspective, the application of God's mercy to us often looks and feels like "severe mercy": more like radical surgery than a bowl of hot chicken soup or a rum toddy.  In short, the promise that the election result will be consistent with God's perfect Will is NOT a promise of smooth sailing ahead for America and for the world.

A. Exactly!
(III) America has been greatly blessed by God, (5) but this does not make us a Chosen Nation in the way that the ancient Israelites were.  God is sovereign over all, and loves all mankind: as you said, the blind African baby as much as the American suburbanite.  To prevent this country from doing further harm to the rest of the world with further abuse of our military, economic, and cultural power, it may be that God will allow us to fall.  He allowed his Chosen People to fall to Assyrian and Babylonian and Roman occupation; why should we expect greater protection from adversity than they got?

A. Exactly! As a matter of fact - the memory of the past fallen empires as well as the repeated chastisements of the original Chosen People of God are precisely ongoing warnings from God.
(IV) Alas for my country!  As Thomas Jefferson said in 1781, "Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just."
-- With the unprovoked invasion of Iraq, we already committed a war crime - and ALL THREE of the remaining major-party candidates have explicitly "left on the table" the idea of war against Iran.  That war, if it comes, would be as unjust as the Iraq war.

-- There is no "peace movement" to speak of in America now.  On the Democratic side, the two antiwar candidates (Gravel and Kucinich) together got no more than 2% of the vote.  On the Republican side, the winner is McCain - a war hawk who is willing to see our troops stay in Iraq for 100 years, and who sang "bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" during a campaign appearance.  The antiwar Republican, Ron Paul, got less than 15% of the vote.  If McCain wins - perhaps because the two Democratic contenders destroy each other during the rest of the nomination duel - Americans will have voted for a continuation of the policies of George W. Bush.  All of this is so different from 1968 (when antiwar challenger Eugene McCarthy forced LBJ to withdraw from the race), and from 1972 (when antiwar candidate McGovern got the Democratic nomination ... before going down to defeat by Nixon.)  My hunch is that "the people" are disgusted with the Iraq war because we are losing, not because it was wrong.

-- Abortion continues ... at least a million innocent deaths a year.

-- The economic system is expertly rigged to transfer income and wealth from the poor and the middle class to the rich.  To take the current examples: the central bank is bailing out irresponsible financial institutions in a generous way that was not applied to Katrina victims, and is not being applied to the foreclosure victims in the current mortgage crisis.

-- The media and the educational system continue their decay.

-- So does the political system.  The sordid morals of our rulers (i.e., the recent and present governors of New York) correspond with the character of the laws they enact.

-- And so forth ...
I don't like the prospect of suffering, or of seeing my countrymen suffer.  And yet, how can I argue that such suffering is undeserved?

A. You could argue that such suffering is undeserved only if you would join the hundred of millions who take comfort on the drug of denial.
(V) As you have said, it is too late for political action to work (6).  Prayer is the only way that we can shorten and mitigate the events to come.  (7) (8)

A. Yet only a handful - comparatively speaking - believes that.
