From (Mrs.) LM @ US

I appreciate you bringing to our attention that some of the Scripture is missing from the mass readings. 

When I started attending Bible Study at my Catholic Church, the nun, who was our instructor, always told us to read the entire scripture, not just parts of it. 

Anyway, I wondered, considering the times we are in, did anyone realize that this week a major part of 2 Thessalonians was omitted from the Mass readings [2 Thess. 2:1-3a, 14-17], of Tuesday, August 28?
 
The omitted verses were 2 Thessalonians 2 : 3b-12  which speak about Christ and the Lawless One. 

It's almost like having a front row seat to the coming events.  It's sad and exciting at the same time. Sad, because some people won't know what hit them, and exciting to know that I am on the right track.  I am not imagining this. Thank you for your work for the Lord.  I am glad I found a place that nurtures my spirit and confirms my thoughts.

Not everyone I am close to understands what I say and just ignore me.  I will post scripture on my Facebook page, and only a few people will "like" them. It is really amazing.   But I know God's Word is true and will come to pass, ready or not!
 
May you continue to be Blessed and Strengthened, in Jesus' Name, I Pray!

LM

Your kind words of encouragement, as well as your blessing and prayers are most welcome and appreciated.

We also noticed the omission that you mentioned and intended to highlight it on this page, but due to other pressing matters it was forgotten.

Your letter was God's reminder to us to point this out to our readership, as He had originally intended us to do. The omitted verses follow:

[3] Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, [4] Who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God. [5] Remember you not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

[6] And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. [7] For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. [8] And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him, [9] Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, [10] And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:

[11] That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity. [12] But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you firstfruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit, and faith of the truth [2 Thes. 2]

Just as you said: "It's almost like having a front row seat to the coming events." to which we add: "With a detailed program in the hands."

Some Details About.... "Who Is Who?" Amongst satan, The Beast and The False Prophet

It is in the Holy Scriptures, as you will see as we decode it for your understanding.

This is the other document that God held in suspension until now.


From miguel de Portugal


We are happy to see that the recent mailings and posts regarding how can satan set up a very convincing Virtual Reality snare and how to overcome it, has helped many. Keep that type of snare very much in mind because it will be globally used as he manifests himself as Christ - The False Christ.

Being our objective fulfilled,  we are now closing the discussion on this matter.

An important Note has been added....


....to our document about the Timeline of the History of Creation (18a). This totally independent study and its conclusions, together with others since the original publication of said document, continue to add weight and credence to our Timeline of the History of Creation should anyone needed additional confirmation.

The entire NOTE is reproduced below:

Note Added on August 26, 2012 :  An article just published by "Nature" reports on the results of a study on the Origins and Expansion of the Indo-European Language Family. (18b)

Summarizing: They found decisive support for an Anatolian origin over a steppe origin. Both the inferred timing and root location of the Indo-European language trees fit with an agricultural expansion from Anatolia (19) beginning 8000 to 9500 years ago.

What is of great importance to us (and should be to them too) is the coherence of their conclusions with what we have presented as the True History of Creation.

We stated that: Somewhere between 10,500 BC and 9,500 BC, the event that is Biblically know as Noah's Flood took place. For our purposes it is not necessary to pinpoint the exact date of that global cataclysm.

It has been claimed that Noah's Ark - and what it represents - was found in Mt. Ararat (20) (21), in eastern Turkey. It logically follows that the repopulating of this area of the world took place starting from the area we now call Anatolia. (19)

There is a slight difference in the timing. We estimate that what we know as Noah's Flood took place somewhere between 10,500 BC and 9,500 BC while they place the beginning of the expansion between 6,000 and 7,500 BC. Considering the great uncertainties in the calculations and scientific estimations, the 3,000 year differential is nothing to be concerned about. The key point is that the Indo-European language had a common point of origin which precisely coincides with the area of the events we know as Noah's Flood.

From miguel de Portugal

The most serious obstacle that prevents us from reaching the pristine and true Divine Light is:

Taking a troublesome situation we want to solve into our own hands, or to give it to somebody else on whom we have a "a lot of faith", to have it resolved while leaving God out of the solution.

Does our technique of bypassing God gives good results? Obviously not!  We invite you to review a nineteen year old document that we have reissued.


Divination and Miraculous Healing - What about God?


A Biblical Synopsis

Let us not continue to offend God - It certainly IS NOT to our advantage.



Published on August 23rd, 2012

From miguel de Portugal

We wish to call to our reader's attention the Note we added to all Garabandal documents almost exactly two years ago. It seems that it has been overlooked or forgotten by some. We want to specially highlight the information which constitutes Foot Note (5).

Important NOTE Added on August 19, 2010 

Please be advised that: The Warning (1), Miracle (2) and Sign announced at the time of the Garabandal phenomena (3) at San Sebastián de Garabandal, Spain, between 1961 and 1965 may not come to pass in the manner in which they were announced then.

There is a very real possibility that the world is heading, without further ado, directly into the Chastisement, which was announced in Garabandal and Akita (4), and which we have independently confirmed several times since 1992.

We do not intend to explain, justify, or “do theology” regarding this notification any further at this time. We do, however, encourage each and every one of you to act upon it as it were the proverbial "Gospel Truth" - you have nothing to lose by heeding this advise, but much to lose if it is ignored.

This announcement should in no way - directly or indirectly - cast a doubt on the events of Garabandal which, without a doubt, were real and from Heaven. However, all must remember the Sovereignty of God; a sovereignty which He freely exercises as He sees how His children react to His entreaties, and how those who were entrusted with the Evangelization of His children have acted (5).

We suggest that the guidelines on "What to do?" that we published long ago (6) be taken out from the "Hope (it doesn't happen) Chest" and followed, now.

For those to whom God made a special promise associated with the Miracle, we say: Don't despair!  God will keep His Word; maybe not in the manner that you were expecting, but He will.

Regarding Evangelical Perfection


In yesterday's Gospel we read:
[our underscoring]

And behold one came and said to him: Good master, what good shall I do that I may have life everlasting? Who said to him: Why asketh thou me concerning good? One is good, God. But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He said to him: Which? And Jesus said: Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness.  Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. The young man saith to him: All these I have kept from my youth, what is yet wanting to me?

 Jesus saith to him: If thou wilt be perfect, go sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come follow me.  And when the young man had heard this word, he went away sad: for he had great possessions. [Matthew 19:16-22]

From that, most of the under Evangelized Christians will: (a) Consciously think - Well, I guess I'll will not be perfect, so it's not even worth trying;  (b) Unconsciously think: Why bother with fulfilling the basic commandments when that seems to be "just not good enough" and/or Oh, no! another of those polyannish verse like the one of "love thy enemies"; I'll just file it (read = ignore it).

The perfection Jesus spoke about, and illustrated by requesting an act which is practically impossible (for most mortals),  was a complete detachment from the material. One could only have $100 and be obsessed with every penny of it, while one could have $1,000,000 and be completely detached from it. In the first case, the money is the center of the individual's "universe" - the money "owns the individual"; while in the second case, it is God, and not the money, the center of the individual's "universe" - the individual "owns the money".

In the world we have seen far too many examples of the first case while a tiny sampling of the second case. That is why He continued in Matthew 19:

[23] .....Amen, I say to you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. [24] And again I say to you: 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 heaven.

Yet, it is possible with His Grace, a "powerful tool", if you will, that seldom is sought by Christians.

But wait! Didn't He also say: Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect. [Matthew 5:48] ? Are we talking about the same "perfection"?

No, we are not. If you read what lead to Matthew 5:48 - [44] But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: - you will see that this "perfection" has to do with something else.

This was confirmed by Luke. Within the same context Luke wrote: Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. [Luke 6:36]


How "Perfect" can "Perfect" be?

Let us now take the initial concept - the holder of $100 and the holder of $1,000,0000 - to its limit; that is, "being perfectly perfect".

This takes place when the holder of the $100 still makes God the center of his Universe and not the few coins he owns.

As we recently wrote, miguel was truly Blessed when he met an example of "being perfectly perfect". To wit:

Mother Elizabeth was the (financially) poorest individual with whom he had interacted on a personal/spiritual and continuous basis for years - a childless widow nearing ninety years old who lived in a house which was literally falling down, with no air conditioned in a 90+ ºF and 90% humidity environment, yet, she was the richest individual he ever met.

So rich that when God tested miguel's loyalty and faith by allowing him to reach a penniless state, she offered him all her life savings so that miguel could get from under a crushing debt,  (a debt which was beyond her comprehension). Her life savings, which she was placing at miguel's disposal, totaled just under 500 US dollars. It was then and there that miguel met in person the widow of the much talked about "widow's mite" [Mark 12:43].

She was as "Perfect" as anyone could possibly be.

There is no doubt that the soul of Elizabeth Carter Garza (1) is now basking in the revealed Glorious Presence of God.

Regarding Justice and Mercy

Recently we have been moved to underscore the importance of forgiving those who transgress against us. Today we wish to clarify some points to avoid any  misunderstanding and provide the much needed consolation.

We have recently stated: "Do not count on that "Mercy catch all" that most Christians are banking on for the last moment. The Church Administrators counted on that "Mercy bail out" when they chose to blatantly ignored the specific requests from Heaven through Fatima. "Oh, He wouldn't, would He?" said Administrators mused.... and we all know the horrific consequences which affected about 100 million people.

We have also stated that, in the final analysis, what we will be judged on is on how hard we tried to sanctify ourselves (once we realized that Jesus is indeed The Way) and not on how holy we may have been. Since God reads our heart as an open book, He knows if our efforts to sanctify ourselves were indeed sincere and sufficient to merit the Mercy necessary to reduce as much as possible the spiritual cost of our sins. (Amen I say to thee, thou shalt not go out from thence till thou repay the last farthing. [Matthew 5:26])

Since some misunderstanding may have arisen, specially when we categorically state: "Do not count on that "Mercy catch all" that most Christians are banking on for the last moment." we will present some actual examples which will clear up any confusion and provide the much needed consolation.

a. If we lead a loose and sinful life counting on that final "Mercy bail out" and we reach our end in such state, Mercy will be nowhere to be found.

b. If the same person as in (a) above, just before expiring, realizes what a fool he/she had been by counting on the final Mercy bail out as an enpowerment to sin, and fully realizes that he/she is certainly not deserving of Mercy, Mercy will be granted. He/she will have to pay for the sins committed but the stay in Purgatory (1) would greatly reduced.

c. If a person reaches the end still struggling to forgive those who have hurt him/her - a sincere struggle that has been on-going since the individual realized that it was a "must" for Salvation - Mercy will greatly temper the impact of But if you will not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive you your offences. [Matthew 6:15]   

"Struggling" is not the same as "Refusing". A "Refusal" to forgive will bring upon the individual the full weight of Divine Justice, whereas a "Struggle" will invoke Divine Mercy in the proportion of how great the "Struggle" really was.

Let us scroll back to the days prior to World War II. Many Jews saw Hitler's plan coming and, while alerting their fellow Jews, they placed themselves beyond the Nazi reach. Those Jews who refused to listen to the Divine Warnings made available through the Jews who "saw it coming" and stayed within the Nazi reach, had very little to complain to God about and should not expect much Mercy - if any. On the other hand, those who stayed within Nazi reach because they had no means to escape, even though they knew "what was coming", could expect ample Divine Mercy.

One of miguel's closest friend in High School was born in 1942 while her parents were en route from Poland and Rumania to the safety of America. They were not rich and did not posses much of an education - outside the basics - but they had Ears to Hear and responded to the Divine Warnings about Hitler. Now they finally rest in peace in a New York cemetery after living a full life and having contributed to society two upright and gentle women - their daughters.

As can be easily seen, there is no White or Black when it comes to the Final Judgment, with one exception: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, shall never have forgiveness, but shall be guilty of an everlasting sin. [Mark 3:29]

As we explained years ago, when the Spirit of God is rejected - blasphemed against - no forgiveness is forthcoming since the Only One Who can forgive, God, has been rejected.

From miguel de Portugal
[our underscoring]


It seems that God wants us to continue to bring the forefront the issue of forgiveness. The last post of the Divine Encouragement was focused on that particular Grace and, as we have often said, it is not I who chooses what will be the Divine Encouragement that is posted.

Now I understand why: Even the most devoted and faithful soul has an almost built in block against forgiving those who have hurt them.

I will now go to the point - without "any sugar" - and I pray that those who read these lines pay close attention and share it with others

Jesus said:

But if you will not forgive, neither will your Father that is in heaven, forgive you your sins. [Mark 11:26]
 
But if you will not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive you your offences. [Matthew 6:15]   
  
So also shall my heavenly Father do to you, if you forgive not every one his brother from your hearts. [Matthew 18:35]

For if you will forgive men their offences, your heavenly Father will forgive you also your offences. [Matthew 6:14]

Jesus taught from the cross through the ultimate example:

And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. [Luke 23:34]

Jesus taught only one prayer - the Lord's Prayer - and it contains:

Give us this day our supersubstantial bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors. [Matthew 6:11-12]

Every time a Christian offers the Lord's Prayer he/she is renewing his/her covenant with God: forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors thus setting the stage for the Final Judgment.

In case the reader still misses the point, allow me to use plain English: Either you forgive those who have transgressed against you or God will not forgive you in the Final Judgment. Your own words will condemn you.

Do not count on that "Mercy catch all" that most Christians are banking on for the last moment. The Church Administrators counted on that "Mercy bail out" when they chose to blatantly ignored the specific requests from Heaven through Fatima (1). "Oh, He wouldn't, would He?" said Administrators mused.... and we all know the horrific consequences which affected about 100 million people.

God has even been generous enough to transmit to you via one of our published documents (2) "how the mechanism works." So there will not even the excuse of "Oh, if I had known!"

Like with Faith - if you are unable to forgive, ask God for such Grace.

My hands are clean: We cannot make it any clearer, but still pray that no reader of the above lines have to remember them when they are standing before the Divine Throne of Judgment with the accuser bringing up against him/her precisely what we have warned the world about.

The story - An Insider's Report : A Hippocratic Oath  or a Hypocritical  Oath (1) -  is from my mother.  I understand that she has sent a more recent "turn of events" letter.  She told me that you said that it also needed to be published and that you are just not sure how the Lord wants it to be made known yet.  I feel like I want to put my proverbial two cents in.  Not necessarily that I need to, but I want to.  She's my mother and I want to surround her in protection and love.

In 1995, when she changed from an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) nurse to the Geriatric Caregiver nurse (as she was meant to be), I was graduating from high school.  My teenage memories revolve around her work schedule and how it would directly affect her mood, and quite honestly, her health.

I have ALWAYS told her that she needs to write a book exposing the lies and deceit that is prevalent in the health care field.  People have NO idea what is really going on behind the scenes in that particular environment. 

The issues associated with Lyme disease is an excellent example.  If you ever get a chance, please watch the documentary Under Our Skin (2) .  I watched this at my children's elementary school as a special awareness campaign in our county (in VA), as Lyme Disease cases have gone through the roof in this area.  You can substitute the disease "Lyme" with any other disease and the picture is the same.  It's scary.

I have only been made aware of The M+G+R Foundation web site within the last 3 months due to an extreme life change.  My mother feels that you speak the TRUTH with no bias.  What I have read in your Private FYI&R section leads me to concur.  You do not judge nor do you condemn based on what you think the teachings mean.  Your responses are simple.  Isn't that what He would want? 

I will share with you something that my mother may not have.  When the new Pope was installed (I don't know the correct term) - and the press coverage showed him waving to the crowds,  my mother had a vision, an "eyes of the soul" moment, where she saw black birds (she said Ravens) descend upon the Vatican along with malicious and threatening black clouds.  That did not instill confidence in this pope's intentions!

I tell you this because knowing what I know about my mother, you may feel that no one is there for you in this world.  That you are putting information on the web in vain.

YOU are NOT. If you ever feel this doubt, my mother will remind you that such is not the case. 

She is a special child in the eyes of the Lord as well, I will never believe otherwise.  She has always been the confidante of myself, my friends, and random people that are drawn to her.

She has been alienated and made to feel inferior and extremely doubtful in the Lord's calling for her.  I have no such doubts in relation to her.  As you should have no doubts about yourself.

Yours in Christ

IW

A.
You kind words Glorify God Whom we strive to serve and give the due credit to a real Witness to Christ  - your mother. As we commented on yesterday's Divine Encouragement:

Can you imagine what we could achieve for the benefit of God's Creation if we could be united in just one thing: A burning desire that only His Will be fulfilled in each one of us and that what needs mending in the world be corrected in accordance to His most Holy Will?

Let us leave behind our pathetic human desires and choices and reach for the proverbial stars - The Will of God.

It takes a few committed Christians, like your mother, to change the world - not with weapons or threats of damnation but - with prayers and solid Christ like examples. As it is said in Portugal "Falar é barato" - that is, "Talk IS cheap" and unfortunately (far too) many of those who claim to be Christians are very good at it.

We have no doubt that her career has been one of suffering but of many rewards as well, as she saw the result of the love and care she bestowed upon those under her care.

You wrote: "I understand that she has sent a more recent "turn of events" letter.  She told me that you said that it also needed to be published and that you are just not sure how the Lord wants it to be made known yet."  By now you may have seen that her update was turned into An Insider's Report : A Hippocratic Oath  or a Hypocritical  Oath - Part 2

We know that many will feel strengthened and empowered by her example. We have added the appropriate encoding to the posted documents so that the Search Engines can easily find the information once they have added both documents to their files.

Take good care of your Mom because, as you well know, she is a Rare Gem.

Published on August 12th, 2012

From (Mrs.) IW @ US


Several days ago I attended a healing Mass at my parish.  Once I had given all of my petitions to Jesus prior to Mass and subsequent Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, I asked the Lord if there were other individuals He wanted me to pray for.

I had already included you in my petitions, but for some reason, your name clearly came to mind:  “Miguel de Portugal”.  I immediately  placed you and your ministry in the Holy Host.  That’s where I felt Jesus wanted you and your ministry to be placed: very, very close to Him for safekeeping, especially at this particular time.  Ever since then, you’ve been “staying” in my mind.
 
I wish to update you on what’s been happening pertaining to my nursing vocation.
 
[Note from The M+G+R Foundation: We have chosen to turn Mrs. IW's update into Part II of An Insider's Report - A Hippocratic Oath  or a Hypocritical Oath] (1) (2)

I admit to having a very difficult time forgiving my enemies at this time.  Would you be so kind as to pray for me so that I may be given the grace to completely forgive them?
 
Thank you, Miguel, for what you do.  May God bless you in abundance with health, stamina and perseverance, especially when things are difficult.  Amen.
 
In Jesus and Mary,

IW    

 A.
We certainly appreciate and welcome your prayers. We have many enemies in very high places (in the spiritual domain such position translates into "very low places") and I need all the Spiritual help I can get to fulfill the purpose for which God created me.

As you may see, we have turned your update into Part II of the original report that you sent to us in May. Part II is also very important since it gives a very clear and realistic picture of what a Christ like whistle blower faces, while the real benefits defy measure:  Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. [Matthew 5:10]

We understand what you mean by "I admit to having a very difficult time forgiving my enemies at this time."  This "bump in the Christian road" is more common than most imagine, however, we may have the means, assisted by prayers, to accelerate achieving such state.

If you refer to our document (3) wherein we dismantle the reincarnation myth and carefully review what we represented by the "F-1", "F-2", etc.,  it will become easier for you to forgive your enemies. As you will clearly see, the original soul in that particular individual - whom you now consider the enemy - is as much a victim as you are and he/she needs your help!

Once again, your kind words and offerings are most appreciated. May we be able to return your kindness by helping you to forgive all who have wronged you in your entire life.

From miguel de Portugal


Recently, the Mass' Gospel reading contained the following verses from Luke 13:

24 Jesus told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

27 "The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?'

28 "'An enemy did this,' he replied.

"The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?'

29 "'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'" ...it may be a good idea to review the events in history which Providentially have taken place on such date.

Several secrets are revealed through such parable.

If we start from the fundamental premise that the "enemy" can only sow the weeds if and when the owner of the field allows it, first we can see that:  As we have highlighted before - not even the angels of God know which souls-in-the-flesh are destined to hell.

Now, the next question would be: Why would God - the owner of the field - allow the "enemy" to sow his weeds around the wheat field? We will respond to that question with another parable.

If when a baby is born he/she is placed in a completely sterile room and kept there for a few years, once the now young child is taken out of the sterile room he/she would quickly die from a multitude of infections. His body - from birth to its placement in the "open world - did not have the necessary stimulus to develop its immune system.

If when a baby is born he/she is raised only among good and holy people, he/she would be free from most temptations. There would be  no one enticing him/her to live outside Divine Law, which would make it very hard, almost impossible, for that human to earn his/her way back to Paradise.

Would we give an Olympic Medal to anyone who just asks for it or does it have to be earned?

As we often say: Even satan must serve God and, in this particular example, he literally cooperates (against his will, of course) with the soul finding its way back to Paradise.

Many are often surprised at the chilling of the Faith (1) and promptly dismiss any report of  fraudulent activity by the Church Administrators as the fabrication of the "enemies of the Church". However, it is imperative that we acknowledge the innumerable tricks which have been played upon the innocent and trusting faithful so that we understand, and counteract to the extent God Wills, the why and how man has caused the failure of  applied Christianity.

A week ago I came across a documentary which included the story of an alleged miraculous crucifix - The Rood of Grace - that was the object of veneration in the Cistercian Abbey of  St. Mary in Boxley, Kent (England). When I saw the replica of it and how it was made to work "miracles", the disgust was overwhelming, a feeling that was only outdone by the sadness I felt (2). We will spare you the images but will share with you the solid facts exposing another trick played upon the innocent Faithful.

The abbey of St. Mary, Boxley, was founded, according to Manrique, on 28 October, 1146, by William of Ypres, son of the count of Flanders, and colonized from Clairvaux in France, one of the four principal daughter-houses of Clteaux. The founder was the ruler of practically the whole of Kent under Stephen, and a man of evil reputation; and it is said that the Cistercians promised him absolution from his sins if he would give them the manor of Boxley, which the king had given him, for the foundation of a monastery.

The abbey is mentioned occasionally in the early chronicles. In 1171 the abbot was one of those who hastily buried Thomas Becket, the murdered archbishop of Canterbury. In 1175 he attended the council held at Westminster on 18 May. In 1193 the abbots of Boxley and Robertsbridge were sent abroad to search for Richard I, whom they found in Bavaria on Palm Sunday.

Boxley is best known through its celebrated Rood of Grace, a cross with an image supposed to be miraculously gifted with movement and speech.

More than a century before the Dissolution the abbey was spoken of as 'The Abbey of the Holy Cross of Grace.' Archbishop Warham, writing to Wolsey in connexion with claims against the abbey, says that it was much sought after by visitors to the Rood from all parts of the realm, and so he would be sorry to put it under an interdict.

He calls it 'so holy a place where so many miracles be showed.'

The image proved to be a gross imposture. Geoffrey Chamber, employed in defacing the monastery and plucking it down, wrote to Cromwell on 7 February, 1538, that he found in the famed crucifix certain engines and old wire, with old rotten sticks in the back, which caused the eyes of the image to move and stir in the head thereof, 'like unto a lively thing,' and also, the nether lip likewise to move as though it should speak, ' which was not a little strange to him and others present.'

He examined the abbot and old monks, who declared themselves ignorant of it; and considering that the people of Kent had in time past a great devotion to the image and used continual pilgrimages there, he conveyed it to Maidstone that day, a market day, and showed it to the people, ' who had the matter in wondrous detestation and hatred so that if the monastery had to be defaced again they would pluck it down or burn it.'

The image was afterwards taken to London and exhibited during a sermon by the bishop of Rochester at St. Paul's Cross, and then cut to pieces and burnt. The news of the exposure appears to have been widely spread, and probably nothing was more damaging to the case for the monasteries. (3) (4)

Final comment  by miguel de Portugal

As we all should remember, Jesus made a real effort to avoid the proverbial spot light after performing a miracle.

Why? The answer is in His response to Thomas: ....blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed. [John 20:29]

Faith that is based on what is not seen cannot be taken away. Faith based on witnessing physical events can be destroyed if it can be proven (demonstrated) how the physical event can be falsified.  Now then, after one truly believes without having seen, one can enjoy witnessing a string of miracles since this will never affect the true core original faith.

Did you know that.... we must be thankful to God for allowing (not causing, nor leading) us to be tempted?

How else could we strengthen our spiritual "muscles" if we do not have to take a stand against temptation? How else can we prove to God that we chose Him over the world? How else could we better Evangelize those who surround us since they can see the true value that we place on the directives from God by chosing them over the enticements of the world?

Do you think that the much maligned serpent in Paradise was more at fault than Eve? Said serpent was fulfilling what we have often said: Even satan must serve God.

How else could have Adam and Eve resolutely proven to God that they chose Him over the enticements of the world? After all, there was only one thing that they could not do in Paradise.

This does not mean that we should seek temptations nor place them in the way of our brothers and sisters. As a matter of fact, we should avoid temptation whenever it is possible. We speak of the seemingly never ending sea of unavoidable temptations that surround us in the world.

Allow us one very graphic example. When miguel lived in Nazaré (Portugal) he would pray-walk many rosaries by the seashore - several miles a day.

Except in the summer months, the walk by the seashore was quiet, peaceful and inspiring. When summer came, Nazaré became probably the most coveted tourist spot for the Portuguese. The beach was teaming with practically nude bodies everywhere during the daylight hours (remember, this is Europe). To avoid the normal automatic human reaction of casting a look upon such "fleshy scene", even a furtive one, thus avoiding the possibility of an impure thought, the rosaries were prayed-walk elsewhere for the entire summer tourist season. The lack of peace in the environment (it felt like Las Vegas - "party time" 24 hours a day!) was then turned as a sacrificial offering to God. One summer, however, the effect of the sacrifice was so severe that God induced a very strange illness upon miguel to force him to stop the offering and leave Nazaré immediately until peace returned.

As a matter of curiosity, the "strange illness" was the significant narrowing of the gap between the systolic and diastolic blood pressures which, if allowed to continue would have shut down miguel's body by stopping the blood circulation.

It was clear to miguel that God was behind this, therefore, no medication was taken. Instead, miguel left Nazaré as He had instructed him and immediately the "strange illness" disappeared.

[Transfiguration of Our Lord, and Anniversary of the Nuclear Devastation in Hiroshima, Japan]

From (Mr.) IW @ US


I shared the information that you sent about the nuclear missiles being deployed in Cuba (1) with a good catholic friend and this is the negative reply sent back.

The shared letter.....
[highlights by The M+G+R Foundation]

Putin does not like Obama at all and I had an earlier video clip of the newly elected Obama and his delegation visiting Russia. As he walked into the Russian welcome group first, every Russian representative turned away from his offered handshake and shook all the hands of the Obama delegation. Obama looked puzzled at first and as he kept walking every Russian in the greeting party gave him the same treatment.

Putin recently had his new baby baptized and a bit later made a statement on Russian television that it is perfectly OK for Russian public school classrooms to openly display a Crucifix as long as it is paid for by private money. Try that in our commie public schools system.

Also, early in the Obama administration, Putin strongly criticized Obama saying: “80 years ago, we Russia made a big mistake and now America is going down the same path” (he is talking about us going commie).

Politics make strange bed fellows and the real cause behind the new Russian buildup is China needing to be contained. Russia is using us as a paper opponent to mask their military need to inject their naval power in the Southeast Asia area, which China is dreaming of gobble up. In the long run it will actually save us money as our recent Obama military plan is to pull our castrated fleet out of other important areas and concentrate it in the Western Pacific (that will make it a floating Pearl Harbor for China). Strong Russian naval presence in Vietnam will not be as bad as it looks. I think it is a big wall papering of the dangerously emerging Chinese threat.

Fatima Prayers

The Fatima Prayers were for the conversion of Russia and how much more conversion evidence than the former head of the Russian KGB getting his kid Baptized, declaring Crucifixes in the public classrooms and subsidizing the restoration of Catholic and Orthodox property to the rightful owners, funding monasteries and other such things? It looks to me like Pope John Paul (The Great) succeeded as he announced.

More Good News

In ten short years, due to the one child policy and real Catholics hiding out their babies in the country, China will become a majority Catholic Nation. The same thing is happening in North and South Vietnam and Buddhism is in sharp decline all over Asia. Another piece of strangely good news is that our American Liberal Voters have, for the last 29 years, been practicing what they preach with Abortion, Contraception, Euthanasia and what they call Mercy Killings.

A study started 20 years ago proved that every year the percent of the population that votes liberal was reducing its fertility rate by 2-1/2% a year and predicted that in the year 2012, they would drop below the numbers needed to win elections. The study was totally accurate in its prediction and as of this year they will not have enough votes (without the idiotic swing voters) to win a majority.

Obama is doing all this commie stuff because the liberal left knows their numbers cannot continue to grab power so switching to commie real quick and eliminating future elections will keep them from disaster. This election in November is literally life or death for liberals: they know it and will stop at nothing in their desperation to hold onto power. After 2012, their escalating drop in fertility is going to make them extinct in ten years.

Cheers!

(Mr.) Friend of (Mr.) IW

PS Not all the bad looking news is bad, much of it is actually cover for something useful afoot.

Is this OD thinking or not?
 
In Christ,

IW

A.
We Thank you! profoundly for sharing this letter with us.

If we were going to compose a letter that would typify the blindly fanatical religious right in the US - Catholic or otherwise, we would not have been able to even come close to the perfect typification of your friend's letter. He has swallowed the proverbial line, hook and sinker. We could write a book ripping apart every erroneous assertion this poor man believes in but, we neither have the time nor the inclination.

In any case, his "PS" does it for us. When one considers With the full consent of the Cuban leadership, on May 11 of this year, our country has not only resumed work in the electronic center of Lourdes, but also placed the latest mobile strategic nuclear missiles "Oak" on the island.  "not all the bad looking news is bad", he has given us "an X-Ray" of their: (a) type of "Christianity"; (b) level of intellect; (c) knowledge of geopolitics; (d) gullibility which will cause him to embrace the False Christ "no questions asked"; etc., etc.

Regarding your question "Is this OD thinking or not?" all we say is: Down to bringing down the US government by nuclear force, if necesary, to establish their version of the Holy Roman Empire.

As we have said: We could not have concocted such a perfect example that would typify the blind fanatical religious right in the US.

We sincerely pray that our "Guardian Angels" at the NSA - whom we know are among our readership - take note of Mr. IW's friend mentality because it is not unique.

A. Thank you!

It might worthwhile for those who may have some time to also keep an eye on what is going on at the Yellowstone Caldera stations.



Published on August 2nd, 2012 [Mary of the Angels]

From miguel de Portugal

We have been recently asked two questions: (a) Why is "patience" limited? and What limits it?; and (b) How truly infinite is "Divine Mercy".

This question was asked on a face to face encounter and we have chosen to address it here should the answers be of benefit to any of our readers.

(a) Why is "patience" limited? and What limits it?

Patience is limited since unlimited patience turns the grantor into an enabler (1) which, in turns, harms the object of the patience.

Amount/level of patience depends on the ability and/or desire by the object of the patience to learn what must be learned. It also depends on the seriousness of the consequences of the behavior which triggers the need for patience.

(b) How truly infinite is "Divine Mercy"

Faced with a truly contrite and sorrowful heart, the Mercy of God exceeds the boundaries of the Created Universe since He cannot resist such state in a soul.

Let us not forget the following scene:

[39] And one of those robbers who were hanged, blasphemed him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. [40] But the other answering, rebuked him, saying: Neither dost thou fear God, seeing thou art condemned under the same condemnation?

[41] And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done no evil. [42] And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom. [43] And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise. [Luke 23]

However, some "timing" conditions do apply:

(b-1) The individual must make sure that "a chasm" already does not exists between his state and Heaven.

26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us. [Luke 16]

(b-2) One who lives a life contrary to Divine Law counting on a last minute reprieve as the result of the Infinite Mercy of God, will be disappointed when there is none available for him/her.

It may be a good time now to review our document on Divine Providence.

From (Mr.) WO @ US

The Official OD Candidate for President is.... Mitt Romney.

He has been officially endorsed by Lech Walesa, the former leader of Solidarnosc of Poland. Walesa is long known as an Opus Dei man. (1)

He also now has the support of six former US ambassadors to the Holy See, all of whom are quite 'friendly' to Opus Dei. (2)

And for dessert.... Romney has eagerly joined the 'political street theater' of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (seemingly delivered, 'just-add-water' by OD), in reference to "Religious Liberty", and demolishing Obamacare as a Catholic moral imperative (3):

" But I feel that we're all Catholic today. In our battle to preserve religious freedom and tolerance and freedom in this country, it is essential for us to push back against that."

All that is missing is the personal endorsement of Ratzinger.

WO

A. It certainly seems like the proverbial "Open and Shut Case" but if I were the Opus Dei, I would not count on it yet. Mormons can run the proverbial circles around Opus Dei many times over without them even noticing it.

Did you know....


That Escriva's "The Way" is composed of 999 points ? (1)

What do you get if you invert the number of points of their "Way"?

You get "666", the number generally taken as the symbol of satan.

and....

What is the meaning of the "de Balaguer" part of his full name: Josemaria Escrivá de Balaguer?

According to the official dictionary of the Spanish Language from the "Real Academia Española de la Lengua" (our translation to English):  (2) (3)

balaguero

Large pile of chaff, which is the left over when cleaning the grain/wheat.

bálago

1. Long chaff left from the cereals after removing the grain.
2. Threshed straw.

Therefore, from the root word,  "de Balaguer", would be like saying "from the chaff" or "made out of chaff".

Of course, everyone remembers when did Jesus used the term "chaff", but just in case....

Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor and gather his wheat into the barn; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire. [Matthew 3:12]

and confirming it, "just in case"....

Whose fan is in his hand, and he will purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his barn; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire. [Luke 3:17]

Without a doubt, God continues to "tweet" humanity but most of the "tweets" fall on deaf ears.

___________
(1) Look for yourself
(2) balaguero
(3) bálago
