We wish to highlight an interview (1)
with Mark Crispin
Miller, Professor of Media Studies at New York University, published
elsewhere, which contains information that the willing (2)
should be aware of. We
do not know Professor Miller nor any of the other individuals mentioned
in the interview, however, since we know, through revelation, that the
election rigging being discussed is true and allowed by God (3)
, we thought we would
give our readers the information accompanied by "a face".
This should not discourage the US voter from going to the polls.
Remember, we must always do our part so that God Will do His, even if
its through His Passive Will.

Do you know if the Church as officially approved the Rosa Mystica
devotion? If not, do you know where this stands?
I am felt a calling under this devotion to promote her but as I talk
with people I want to make sure I understand where the Church stands on
this devotion. That won't change my mind about her as I have been
personally touched by her so much that I am now going to church
everyday and praying the rosary, etc. But you know there are alot
of critics, etc.
Thanks for your help!
A. The Manifestation of Mary
as Rosa Mystica (1)
has not been officially approved nor it has been condemned either.
Usually when messages are critical of the Administration of the Church
the events are denied, if at all possible, or, swept under the carpet
if they could not be denied without jeopardizing whatever little
credibility said Administration has left.
The Faithful can use the following rule of thumb regarding
Apparitions/Messages which are purposely ignored.
a. Since when an Apparition is
approved by, and has the endorsement of, Rome it is not required that all
Roman Catholics believe in said Apparition/Message, that is, it is left
to the discretion of the Faithful....
....it logically follows that....
b. When an Apparition/Message does not contravene the
faith nor morals; the requirements are already practiced by the
Faithful - like partake of the Sacraments (2), pray the Holy Rosary (3), offer
sufferings life brings upon us (4)
(no self flagellation, please!, etc.); there is no covert
fanaticism involved; and the fruit is good, the faithful should not
worry about official pronouncements and follow what the Holy Spirit of
God indicates them to do about said Apparitions/Messages.
Nonetheless, should the Apparition/Message fall under case (b) above, no
local parish should officially promote and/or endorse it lest it cause
scandal and confuse the Faithful further.
For example: Assume that in a case (b)
requested that the Viacrucis (5) is prayed every last Friday of the Month immediately
after the Mass. The Pastor should make it possible for the
Faithful to fulfill such devotion, and he may even volunteer to lead it
- without alluding to
said Apparition/Message - since the praying
the Viacrucis is an ancient practice in the Roman Catholic Church.

mocking and ominous, the newest posting credited al-Qaeda with having

On reading The War Party
Embraces Obama- by Justin Raimondo - and noting some Republican
defections to Obama (Colin Powell, Ken Adelman, and other neocons) - I
wonder whether the neocon faction in the US is reconciling itself to an
Obama win, since he is in agreement with them in many ways now (provoke
Russia, leave war with Iran on the table, escalate in Afghanistan and
Pakistan, bail out the big banks).
In other words, might he be allowed to win the election and take
office, to the extent that the neocons have control over this matter?

There is one thing I do often ponder about. This is a couple who have
been so disillusioned by the Roman Catholic Hierarchy for so long that
they ages ago gave up attending Mass etc. Their children do attend
Catholic schools, and have gone through the "First Communion and
Confirmation, presumably because the rest ot their classes were
automatically going and they had no strong objections, accepting it as
just part of the routine... That should give you a general background.
At one stage the wife was in despair because, after trying for several
years, she just couldn't manage to have a child. She was so desperate
that some of us feared she would crack up completely.
They eventually sought medical investigation, and it turned out that,
while each of them was perfectly normal in producing
seed/ovulating, the problem was blocked fallopian tubes on her
part which prevented the final stage - fertilization.
For many months other members of both families argued about the moral
implications of getting the problem solved by the doctors. Some
insisted that it couldn't be right because it was forbidden by the
Church and it was 'artificial'; it was said to be only the other side
Others said it was NOT artificial because nothing artificial was
claimed to have been 'created': it was simply assisting the completion
of a natural process that was already almost complete anyway, since his
seed was normal and her ovulation was normal.
Still others said that only God should decide who would get pregnant
and who would not, so artificial means must be shunned.
Of course that begged the question of why, then, it wasn't
considered sinful to do/have a transplant of a vital organ to
save a life, if only God should decide when people lived and when they
died. If God allowed/meant someone to be crippled, was it not sinful
even to use a crutch to ease walking..... it
just went on ad infinitum. You'll have got my drift!
I must say I find it impossible to see where any sin lies in this
situation. Could it be as evil as (I'm told) the Roman Catholic Church
says? Clearly Abortion is as sinful as they teach because it destroys
life. But this is the DIRECT OPPOSITE of Abortion: this is not actually
doing or saying anything re creation: it merely facilitates the
completion of a perfectly natural process.
The final irony in it all is that, notwithstanding that the couple
don't practise any formal religion, they are, in fact, the nearest
thing to real Christians that I know! She is so kind and
self-forgerful as to be almost 'foolish'. I have seen her reply to
really serious abuse from neighbours' children by calling with a
bouquet of flowers for the mother who had watched it from her window!
(This is Northern Ireland, remember!). She's incapable of seeing anyone
in need without going out of her way to help. There's just no end to
It grieves me deeply to hear people saying that God won't recognise
those children (3 boys now) as His. It's really none of my business
what other people do, of course, but what is the moral verdict on this
A. The first thing that
comes to mind is: By this shall all men know that you are my
disciples, if you have love one for another
The second is: But
woe to you... hypocrites; because you shut the kingdom of heaven
against men, for you yourselves do not enter in; and those that are
going in, you suffer not to enter
. [Matthew 23:13]
The Roman Catholic Church is clear - and rightfully so - in
forbidding abortion, artificial insemination and in vitro
fertilization, but, there is a far cry from any of that to a surgical
procedure to correct what is no more than a simple "plumbing" disorder.
If we were to follow the logic of those accusers who call themselves
Catholics but are not even Christians yet, we would have to follow the
pagan custom that some civilizations practiced: If a child was born
with any defect, he/she should either be left abandoned to die or be
May that wonderful couple and their three sons be richly Blessed by God
and may they continue to pray for their enemies and persecutors - as
the true Christians that they are. If this couple would not pray for
them, who would pray for such despicable creatures? (1)
Incidentally - we could not help but notice that the offspring of this
Blessed couple are three boys - three distinct persons - which brings
to mind the Most Holy Trinity and, of course, Michael, Gabriel and
Since we know that most humans "need a face" to believe, we shall

2376 Techniques that entail the
dissociation of husband and wife, by the intrusion of a person other
than the couple (donation of sperm or ovum, surrogate uterus), are
gravely immoral. These techniques (heterologous artificial insemination
and fertilization) infringe the child's right to be born of a father
and mother known to him and bound to each other by marriage. They
betray the spouses' "right to become a father and a mother only through
2377 Techniques involving only the
married couple (homologous artificial insemination and fertilization)
are perhaps less reprehensible, yet remain morally unacceptable. They
dissociate the sexual act from the procreative act. the act which
brings the child into existence is no longer an act by which two
persons give themselves to one another, but one that "entrusts the life
and identity of the embryo into the power of doctors and biologists and
establishes the domination of technology over the origin and destiny of
the human person. Such a relationship of domination is in itself
contrary to the dignity and equality that must be common to parents and
children."167 "Under the moral aspect procreation is deprived of its
proper perfection when it is not willed as the fruit of the conjugal
act, that is to say, of the specific act of the spouses' union ....
Only respect for the link between the meanings of the conjugal act and
respect for the unity of the human being make possible procreation in
conformity with the dignity of the person."168
behavior is not acceptable even if the couple in question had acted
outside the Church ruling on reproductive matters.

confessional and mumble a few generalized sins/transgressions - very,
very easy. The proof of the pudding is to, whenever possible and without causing harm
others, reconcile oneself with those that we have offended.

I am tired from all these "blessings" that have been personal
crosses . The more I pray, receive communion and others "cover" me in
prayer the more my life disintegrates. God may not have favorites
but I thought there would be an end to this meltdown.
Where is my
guardian angel, any angel, Mother Mary's mantel that is supposed to
cover me and my disintegrating family?
Oh , that's right , they are
all blessings. I am fast losing my faith, something I never thought
possible . Oh yeah , pray more , that's the trick !

to your situation can be found in your letter. As we explained to

@ Spain - Published on October 10th,
When we are faced with great suffering the first thing we must do is
ask God to help us see what is that we must learn or just simply
endure, so that the suffering - the volume of the megaphone - can be
greatly reduced or quickly ended. Then, we must abandon ourselves to
His Will, just as He taught us by example:
fell upon his face, praying, and saying: My Father, if it be
possible, let this chalice pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will,
but as thou wilt. [Matthew

We strongly suggest that you - with single mind and soul - pray to God
to augment your Faith to the level He has ordained for you from all

Everything financial and marital has
become extremely difficullt at best, and failing, at worse.
I lost my
job, had over $500k stolen from me by another "catholic", lost $500k
investing, am near to losing my house, and my wife is threatening me
separation (we have several children).
I have heard it said that God has no
favorites, however according to saints and some visionaries today it
is said we have been selected to carry the cross so others may have
"their eyes opened."
If God does not have favorites why would He appear
to have people like me be singled out for negative things?
We only get
the negative and not the positive in this life?
Thanks and God bless.
(Mr.) Initials Withheld
your questions are very
and we thank you for the opportunity to address them.
Let us "take it from the top" - Whether God has
favorites or not.
For that we go - as usual - to the Fount of Truth : The Holy Scriptures
"....your Father who is in heaven, ....
maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the
just and the unjust."
"For whosoever shall do the will of my
Father, that is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother."
Son of man shall send his angels, and they shall gather out of his
kingdom all scandals, and them that work iniquity. And shall cast them into the furnace of
fire: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the just
shine as the sun, in the kingdom of their Father. He that hath ears to
hear, let him hear.
Obviously God DOES have
favorites although the natural benefits
of Creation are available to all. The question is: How are those
natural benefits of Creation used? Obviously, those who use them in
accordance to the Will of the Father, is a family member and logically
they will shine as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father.
Now - you may say: "Fine, but why
this deluge of disgraces?"
Well, the overall answer is found in the Book of Job.
Before God showers upon His
children the untold treasures at His
command, we have to prove ourselves worthy of Him. Obviously, those who
will spend an eternity "...weeping and gnashing their teeth", as the
rich man of the parable of Lazarus [Luke 16:19-31],
have no need to prove themselves worthy of Him, thus, no testing is
But let us take a brief respite to
qualify the source of this text with
the intent to show that we are not speaking from a purely theoretical
point of view having never experienced similar testing.
Before God directed to him
the final call, but after
his conversion of this writer:
(a) He almost had the house repossessed;
(b) With impeccable professional credentials and contacts in the
professions he excelled at, he could not get one single job or
(c) With desirable property to sell - at very good prices - starting
with a custom Porsche, the almost repossessed house and quite a few
unique precious gems and highly desirable artworks - he could NOT give
any of it away;
(d) The payment due to him from selling of business, defaulted on; and
last, but not least
(e) He had monthly notes due on outstanding debts amounting to $5,000
(this is in ca. 1987) with a bank balances of ca. $50 and no prospects
He knew it was a test from God and
he also knew that there was nothing
that God could not do. He would not violate God's Law to unethically or
immorally or through deceit earn money. Then - with all of this
"under his belt" - he claimed to Heaven to do Its part since he was
doing all that was within his reach to resolve the situation.
Once the test was successfully
completed - something that is determined
by God - benefits of all kinds started to rain from Heaven.
Once that "rain" turned into a
"deluge" and he was giving away most
since he had more than enough for his needs.... God said - leave all
behind and follow Me.... and he did, through His Grace. [You see, to
leave all behind and follow God when one does not have anything to
leave behind, is not a test- it is just an act "by default".]
Back to you..... The situation
that you describe could only be the
result of three scenarios: (a) A test to strengthen you spiritually and
an opportunity to prove to Him that, in spite of all, you trust Him and
that you know that He will see you through it; (b) There is a lesson
that you must learn and have had difficulty learning it - God is using
His most persuasive tool: The Megaphone (1); or (c) He simply needs
the sacrifice from someone who is willing to endure suffering for the
benefit of others. (2)
Item (c) (2) is done with the full cooperation of the
soul. When we suffer for redemptive purpose and we continue to moan and
groan and complain about the suffering - no gain can come from it.
Vicarious redemptive suffering has to be voluntary.
So, what is it? With the above
clarifications made - approach your
Father and ask Him, in the Name of His Son, Jesus Christ, exactly what
is what He wants of you and to let you know so that you may comply...
then - do not fret and "pace about" waiting for the answer. He, in His
own time - but soon - will make it so clear to you that you will wonder
why you had not seen it before.
For that intention we shall pray.
Regarding your recent
statement in the Private Forum dated October 1st (response to KD on
if enough of our readers would like that we briefly
comment on the daily Mass readings - like a brief e-homily - we would
consider doing it as long as we can do so as time allows."
My question is: Could it be possible that through those daily comments
or e-homily, if you will, the faithful would unconsciously fall into
dependency of The M+G+R Foundation?
the faithful were to use that logic, he/she would not: (a) watch or
listen to the daily news; (b) attend the same house of prayer -
regardless of the faith in question; (c) would avoid viwing weather
reports; (d) would not sign an employment contract; (e) would
not watch movies of his/her favorite actor/actress; (f) would not
subscribe to a certain newspaper and/or magazine; and (g) certainly
would not read more than one of the documents published by The M+G+R
Foundation "just in case".
Of those who pretend to do what miguel de Portugal was called to do by
God - including the leaders of organized religion - we are the only
ones who: (a) scrupulously make sure that we point, and keep pointing,
the Faithful toward God; and (b) truly defer any benefit that may have
resulted on anyone, through our intervention, to God - for He is the
only One to any Whom Glory is due.
Basically, we: (a) provide the "toll free number" of God; (b) show the
Faithful how to "dial the number"; and (c) as a "help desk" would do,
assist those who may seek it - or whom God indicates to us - in
clarifying a misunderstanding due to a poor "communication" with God or
an outright misinterpretation due to a negative spiritual interference.
We realize that humans are prone to seek other humans to "adore".
Basically, it seems that humans rather adore anything but God, which,
of course, shows the demonic activity in the world.
We have repeatedly rejected such notion from anyone - even losing ample
financial assistance. Something that has happened to m de P a number of times.
(If they wanted an idol to adore they came to the wrong place!)
Outside of that, there is nothing else we can do.... other than to
advise anyone who may be prone to become dysfunctionally dependent on
The M+G+R Foundation to: (a) Stay away; but, before , (b) read PSYCHOLOGICAL

We will close with a story from m de P's High School days. By the time
we were juniors and seniors most of us smoked [m de P greatly cut down
his smoking the moment his father allowed him to smoke...]. One of the
girls - ER - who (justly) prided herself of "having it all together"
decided to prove to herself (it was not for show off) that
she controlled the cigarettes and not all the way around. Therefore,
she stopped smoking for six months, then she, as an act of her will,
resumed smoking because she had proven to herself to be the master of
