From (Mr.) IW @ Somewhere in the World
[our highlights]

I am facing constant anxiety and confusion as I turn my back on the material world, of which I have never striven to be a part of and always knew that it was not as it seemed.

I feel and have always felt comfortable and sure inside, but my problem has been in how to deal with the external worldI always shown love and compassion to my fellow humans, and always understood they were on their own spiritual paths and it was not for me to judge or assume but to accept.

This can be at times very trying as the lost/fractured souls can become aggressive, destructive and abusive when faced with unconditional love, as they do not know how to react to it.

In the many years I have followed the M+G+R site I have found it, more than anything else, to provide assurance and consolation that I am on the right path.  It is my only beacon of light in these trying times.  Thank you for the time and energy and you take to share your blessings with the world.

IW


A.
Thank you for the reassuring and consoling words of appreciation. May God continue to grant us the necessary Graces to serve all whom we must serve in accordance to His Will.

Your description of, and response from, the world environment could not possibly be more accurate. You certainly are part of a very small group composed of those who take very seriously the teachings of Jesus Christ and sincerely strive to practice them in their day to day life. A group which is the proverbial drop in the bucket filled with those who claim to be Christians.

You state: "my problem has been in how to deal with the external world". What consolation could miguel give you? Only that twenty-seven years after his flash conversion he still must pray every day asking God to help him deal/function with the external world to the extent he still has to

Your statement of: "they do not know how to react to it." also is miguel's "daily bread" and, at times, just as you said, "lost/fractured souls can become aggressive, destructive and abusive".

Allow us to share with you what miguel's daughter told him some years back (at that time she was mid thirties and single). In this case, the proverbial thousand words are worth more than a picture. She said: "I met this fellow at church and we have been talking a lot. He is really nice and I think that he is really interested in me.... unless he is like you."

Most people are used of others only showing an interest in them strictly for financial gain or romance - one night stand or long term. They cannot understand or discern that someone are really interested in them only for the love of God in our hearts.

In the town miguel resides now there are a few (that he knows of) young ladies - mid twenties to mid thirties - who thought that miguel was making romantic overtures at them because of the courtesy and attention he showed to them.... just like he does to the rest of the females and males (of any age) in the area.

What to do? Is miguel going to stop striving to behave in a manner coherent with his belief in God and His teachings because of a few misunderstood his behavior? Of course not! That is their problem; miguel's "problem" is to continue behaving in a manner coherent with his belief in God and His teachings. Courage, dear brother! Continue to be a beacon of light and love to others. As long as our intentions are good, God will take care of the proverbial "collateral damages".

On another "behavioral front" - Courteously deferring to others sometimes causes a particular "other" to become arrogant towards miguel. A brief moment of "a miguel that would make a glacier seem warm" brings the confused "other" to his/her senses. This usually ends the arrogance and behavior associated with it.

Dear brother in Christ, what you are experiencing "comes with the territory". Knock on His door every day and ask Him to give you the patience and whatever other virtues are needed to be able to properly interact with the world, to the extent He Wills that you do.

Summarizing: Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also. [John 15:20]

Thank you for giving us this opportunity to bring this very real concern to the attention of our readers.

From (Mr.) WS @ US

On page 275 of the book, "Opus Dei, an objective look behind the Myths and Reality of the Most Controversial Force in the Catholic Church" by John Allen, Jr. published 11/2005 by Doubleday (1), I read the following statement by Opus Dei's Fr. John McCloskey:

"As you may have learned, there are approximately 60 million nominal Catholics (in the USA) at the beginning of the Great Jubilee at the turn of the century. You might ask how we went from that number down to our current 40 million. I guess the answer could be, to put it delicately, consolidation.  It is not as bad as it looks. In retrospect only approximately 10% of the sixty or so were 'with the program.' I mean to say 10% of that base assented whole-heartedly to the teaching of the Church and practiced the sacraments...

The Catholics we do have are better formed. practiced their faith in the traditional sense at a much higher level than ever, and are increasingly eager to share that faith with their neighbors.  Dissent disappeared from the theological vocabulary...

Upon that fulcrum we can transform the world if we stay the course.
"  

If only 10 million Catholics are "with the program", does this mean that only 10% of the clergy are also "with the program", what ever that is?

My silly alternative proposal is to have all Catholics, as they are going into Mass, sign their names under a copy of the Nicene Creed and pledge 10% of their income to support the Church.  Those who refuse will be turned away as with all late-comers. 

What other "program" is Fr. McCloskey could be talking about?

 Mr. Allen states that "At its core, Opus Dei is that the redemption of the world will come in large part through laymen and laywomen sanctifying their daily work, transforming secularity from within."

Hmmm.... I thought Jesus redeemed the world once for all.... so I guess there's no need for a "Second Coming" because the 10% who are 'with the program' wouldn't want to trouble him.  I guess the term "People of God" must be very, very exclusive....

Maybe it's all just entertainment.  Perhaps we'll see Cardinal Dolan do his version of the Vatican Rag.

WS


A. Thank you for sharing this with all of us. It is amazing how plain the Opus Dei intelligentsia speak about what they are up to, and yet it all goes over the head of most, including poor and very confused Mr. Allen.

All that anyone has to do is check the "Faith", "Moral" and "Conversion" levels in Spain - the root country of Opus Dei, in which they have more control of society than most want to acknowledge since the late thirties - to realize that "their program" is basically worthless - just as Jesus pointed out: One cannot serve God and Mammon no matter to what length anyone goes to justify it. (2)

____________
(1) Book Details
(2) The great fallacy of Opus Dei "theology"


which brings us to....


In today's Gospel Reading we are reminded that....  [21] Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. [22] Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? [23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. [Matthew 7]

It is amazing how most "Christians" gloss over "he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven." and go on "doing their thing" convinced that they surely will spend Eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven because, somehow, "it is their right!"

We keep "hammering" on that issue because, together with the often said and seldom prayed Our Father's "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us, (1) it is one which will cause many surprises when "The End" sign appears on the screen of our journey in Time.

No. This is not a case of us "preaching to the choir". We know exactly what we are doing and why.

Published on June 26th, 2012 [Day of Mourning for Christians (1a)(1b)(1c)]

From miguel de Portugal

In today's Mass reading [2 Kgs 19:9b-11, 14-21, 31-35a, 36 9] we see how Hezekiah, King of Israel handled the death threat from the King of Assiria:

Hezekiah took the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it;then he went up to the temple of the LORD,and spreading it out before him,he prayed in the LORD's presence: "O LORD, God of Israel, enthroned upon the cherubim!

You alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth.You have made the heavens and the earth.Incline your ear, O LORD, and listen!Open your eyes, O LORD, and see! Hear the words of Sennacherib which he sent to taunt the living God.Truly, O LORD, the kings of Assyria have laid waste the nations and their lands, and cast their gods into the fire;they destroyed them because they were not gods,but the work of human hands, wood and stone.

Therefore, O LORD, our God, save us from the power of this man,that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, O LORD, are God."

Then God responded through Isaiah...

"Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel,in answer to your prayer for help against Sennacherib, king of Assyria: I have listened! This is the word the LORD has spoken concerning him:...

"Therefore, thus says the LORD concerning the king of Assyria: 'He shall not reach this city, nor shoot an arrow at it, nor come before it with a shield, nor cast up siege-works against it. He shall return by the same way he came, without entering the city, says the LORD. I will shield and save this city for my own sake, and for the sake of my servant David.'"

And this what happened....

That night the angel of the LORD went forth and struck down one hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the Assyrian camp. So Sennacherib, the king of Assyria, broke camp, and went back home to Nineveh.

Do you know how many people believe this to be a true story in regards to the outcome - Jerusalem being saved by invoking, with faith, the power of God? Very, very few! and none within the Administration of any of the Christian Faiths. Yet we have the more recent story of how Constantinople was saved (2), also without firing one single shot, and are positive that there are many others well hidden by Mammon and its minions.

Prayer and the faithful invocation of the Power of God do not fill the coffers of Mammon so the disoriented people of the world are led to believe that they have to take up arms and use violence to protect themselves.

We ask: Are most humans so stupid as to not realize that this approach has never worked and never, ever will? The answer is a resounding "Yes! they really are"

(1b) Reason Two
(1c) Which resulted in this.
(2)   The Miracle of the Virgin Mary at the Church of Blachernae in Constantinople on 911 AD


Do you wonder...... where do we mostly see the manifestation of the following reading of today's Gospel?

The reading:

Jesus said to his disciples:"Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.

"Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the Law and the Prophets.

"Enter through the narrow gate;for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction,and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few." [Mt 7:6, 12-14]

One: Heavenly manifestations exhorting us to return to the right path are invariable experienced by young, pure and innocent children and not to swines or vipers who will betray God, exploit His Name for commercial purposes and use it to their world oriented agenda (1).

Two: Those who find the narrow gate are few indeed since the direction given to them by their alleged shepherds lead them away from life and into spiritual death (2).

2012 [Feast of the Birth of John the Baptist]


From (Mrs.) IW @ US

I am still praying for my three sons to receive God's Grace so what they have been taught (and what was probably omitted, unintentionally) will spring to life in their souls so that they too will receive our Wonderful Savior's Saving Grace.

I do hope they do not need to be on the verge of something terrible for it to happen. 

IW

A.
What we should be concerned about is not about the "seeds planted" springing to life. They always spring to life, the problem, as you yourself recognized, is that they may have been placed into a state of suspended animation. A state that will require a brutal "wake up call".

Faith "seeds" are easily
placed into a state of suspended animation when the link between the Administration and the Faith is so strong that the individual cannot separate them in his/her mind and the reality of God is equated with the Administration.

What we strongly recommend to you, and all, is, of course, prayer for them, first and foremost, and second, help them see that the brood of vipers that has controlled the Administration, and their activities, for the past 1600 years, have not soiled the fundaments of the Faith truly inspired by the Holy Spirit of God.

Why could they not destroy or disfigure the most complete Faith known to man (1)? Because, as we have said many times before, God would not allow satan to deprive His children with the greatest sustenance on Earth - the Catholic Faith -  at the time when it is most needed - Now!

We must also remind one and all that God is the Incomprehensible Almighty Creator of a Universe He contains, since He Is greater than His creation, and that, like it or not, satan must serve Him. Period!

We thank you for this opportunity to again stress these points but from a different perspective this time.

From (Mr.) RBB @ Spain  

Q. Would the following add new information to what miguel de Portugal already has?

The Book of Daniel mentions: "...other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river" ... "And one [of these two] said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?" [From Daniel 12:5-7]

These men are clearly John the Baptizer and John the Evangelist, as we can easily show.

"The man clothed in linen" is our Lord Jesus Christ, and the "river" is His First Coming, thus:

Of this "other two", John the Evangelist is the one who asked to the man clothed in linen how long shall it be to the end of these wonders, evident as we verify that he recorded (the answer to) that question for us in the Book of Revelations. Let us see....

Daniel tell us the response received by the one who asked: "And I heard the man clothed in linen ... that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; ..." The very precise words we can better find in Straubinger spanish translation, who says exactly "one time, (two) times, and an half (of one time)"

We can trace this same measure of time in two places of St. John's Book of Revelations:

  1. "The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for one time, (two) times, and an half (of one time), out of the serpent's reach. [Rev 12:14] (King James, but precision by Straubinger)

  2. "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." [Rev. 11:3] (King James)

As for the 1,260 days, we know that:

1 time + 2 times + 0.5 times = 3.5 times

3.5 years = 42 moths = (30 x 42) days = 1260 days

Further indicators of Divine Coherence:


RBB


A. We certainly thank you for sharing this with our readers. To answer the original question - point blank: No; the above information has not added to the necessary Divinely Inspired data base that miguel de Portugal holds at this time. As a matter of fact there are other numbers associated with the above which are 1290 and 1335 days - which represent 1260 + 30 (one month) days = 1290 and 1260 + 30 (one month) + 45 (one and a half month) days = 1335.

However, what the Holy Spirit of God has used you to reveal to us is the identity of  the three men involved in the scene - something that has always gone unnoticed to m de P.  Now, the question is: What may be the value of that?

The way we see it, this illumination is another solid confirmation of the perfect coherence within the Holy Scriptures and the proof  that no one - not even miguel de Portugal - and certainly not the Church Administration - have exclusive access to the Lights of the Holy Spirit of God.

May this serve as an example to one and all to allow the Holy Spirit to illuminate your every thought - without any desire to "become a Prophet" but with the  great desire to learn more and more about the Marvels that God has in store for those who seek them.

Note: RBB is the generous Spanish soul who has been doing the translations of our documents into Spanish for some time now as well as the author of those magnificent Indexes that may be found in our Research Department which afford, to those who truly seek, direct and easy access to the information contained in our Domains.  We certainly have very, very few contributors but those that we have are true gems - Lee Penn being another one of them.

From miguel de Portugal

If there is someOne Who has been misunderstood throughout the ages, that One is God.

In yesterday's Mass reading [1 Kings 21:17-29] we hear about evil Ahab, King of Samaria, and his wife Jezebel, getting rid of Naboth so that he could take possession of his vineyard. Then we hear about God sending Elijah with a message for Ahab itemizing a string of calamities that will befall him and Jezebel for the crimes committed.

[27] And when Ahab had heard these words, he rent his garments, and put haircloth upon his flesh, and fasted and slept in sackcloth, and walked with his head cast down. [28] And the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Thesbite, saying: [29] Hast thou not seen Ahab humbled before me? therefore, because he hath humbled himself for my sake, I will not bring the evil in his days, but in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house.

As you may read for yourself, Ahab escaped punishment but "in his son's day" punishment will be delivered. The improperly Theologlized Jews and Christians could say: What kind of God is that? Accepting bribes and dispensing punishment where it is not deserved.

Then the alleged experts would say: No, no! It must be a translation issue or just a copyist's mistake.

The problem with that silly explanation is that we come across this type of situation over and over again in the Old Testament. That is why the poor God of the Old Testament has such bad reputation - as if we were dealing with different gods.

Here are the keys to understand this kind of situation.

First of all, as we have said before, God speaks to His children in the language and manner in which they can understand Him, given their level of intellect at the time. Secondly, we must not forget that the Supernatural/Spiritual realm has laws just as the Natural/Physical realm has. The violation or disregard of those laws have consequences.

Just because an individual falls off a tree he was climbing and break an arm does not mean that the tree is evil or that the ground is evil or that God is punishing him. It means that the law of gravity applied and, an object above the ground will fall upon said surface once support is lost.

Back to Ahab and Jezebel.... What they did carries automatic consequences because of Supernatural/Spiritual laws. The consequences may span generations. Just look at the consequences of ignoring the Fatima requests. We are almost at the 100th Anniversary of the Heavenly requests and the final "invoice" is still to be presented. That is, four generations have passed and full payment has not been made yet. (1)

Ahab, when faced with his misdeeds truly repented and "..
rent his garments, and put haircloth upon his flesh, and fasted and slept in sackcloth, and walked with his head cast down...." Applying Divine Mercy  God decided that  "....because he hath humbled himself for my (God's) sake, I (God) will not bring the evil in his days".

You may then say: That is all good and well but, what about those living in his son's days? To which we will respond: Why over 100 million people world-wide have had to suffer the act of disobedience of the Roman Catholic Church Administration regarding the specific requests (1) from Heaven?

In a properly Theologized environment, prayer and sacrifice by others besides the original culprits/transgressors will move the Mercy of God to soften the blows due as the consequence of the violated Supernatural/Spiritual laws. Using the Fatima issue as an example - If the Faithful under the leadership of their local pastors had, instead of trusting the Church Administration to do the right thing, stormed Heaven with prayers and sacrifices, the suffering and losses caused by World War II as well as the Soviet Empire would have been greatly reduced.

If the people around Ahab had been aware of the long term consequences the murdering of Naboth would have in their country and descendants, they would have tried to make some amends in keeping with their level of intellect and faith. That would have neutralized or greatly diminished the promise that "... in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house. "

You may then say: How come the assassination of Naboth would cause such a disruption and misery in the area? To which we will respond: Who would have thought that the Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand would trigger the bloodiest century humanity has known since the time  of what we know as Noah's Flood took place?

Now, do you understand why we keep exhorting one and all to prayer and sacrifice to cushion the blows already pummeling humanity as the result of its stiffed neck opposition to God? Do you hear us assigning blame, "washing our hands" and then saying, for example - Well, they broke the china - let them pay for it!

Yes, we proclaim from the highest mountain that the Church Administration is no more than a brood of vipers (and not only them, by the way!), but as children of God we must do what we can, in His Name (always!) to provide "damage control" so that the true innocent people do not have to pay as much as the transgressions of said vipers demand and for the conversion of the "vipers".

I pray to God that we have been able to express myself clearly enough to once and for all eradicate that blasphemous concept of the "Wrathful and vengeful God of the Old Testament."

God IS Love; God IS Mercy. IS, WAS and WILL EVER BE!

From (Mr.) BH @ Philippines

In reference to today's News Commentary post:

The greatest gift to the poor is quality basic education and skills training for their children given for free or at very low costs. This is a very precious heritage that St. Josemaria Escriva left to the faithful of the Prelature of Opus Dei which he founded. A preferential option for the poor is very much part of the DNA of Opus Dei...

I don't know much about  Opus Dei works in the Philippines except that most of their members are either professionals, businessmen, politicians and/or well to do.

In addition, I know of a school (university) they own or run/manage which is considered as one of the most expensive university  in the Philippines - University of Asia and the Pacific (U A & P), their web site (1) has a dragon as  a logo or mascot as you open their page.

Anyway, I am just wondering where is the (sic) "preferential option for the poor is very much part of the DNA of Opus Dei..."  in the above mentioned examples given in the Philippine press (2).

May God be Praised by your timely feedback. We knew it could not be true, thus our comment (3) but we had no concrete details.

As to who runs ZENIT:

"Staffers come from a variety of spiritualities in the Church. Some are religious or consecrated men and women, others are lay people who come from Church groups, both young and ancient (Franciscan and Ignatian spiritualities, Opus Dei, communities from the Charismatic Renewal, Regnum Christi, the Teresian Institute, or parish leaders). Others are committed Catholics with no particular affiliation. Several married couples work for ZENIT.

ZENIT is promoted by the religious congregation of the Legionaries of Christ. Two Legionary priests offer consultation services and collaborate in writing the "Analysis" and "Liturgy" columns. " (1)

miguel de Portugal comments: At least we now have what they claim. Knowing the source, we are usre that there is a substantial gap between what they claim and the truth.

From (Mr.) IW @ US

In the June 8th post of News Commentary (1), the name of Lyman Lemnitzer came up ["Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Lyman Lemnitzer, is the Bilderberg member who has done more for both accurate and unfounded conspiracy theories than any of his peers."]. A name with which I am personally familiar with. But not just for the historical horrors he was connected with.

His childhood home is literally a mile up the road from me. And the locals are very "proud" of him.... just as I am sure that the locals in Transylvania are "proud" of Vlad the Impaler. (2) (3) (4)

The only difference is: the good folks of Transylvania know that Vlad and what he did was profound evil. In Lemnitzer's home town little children are taught that he is a 'hero'....

The National Guard Armory in the town is named for him.

While the town and surrounding area have an interesting history, the town is currently an "armpit". Reeking of greed, corruption and masonry (which all go hand in hand - and which run the churches). No jobs, businesses closing, etc. The rich keep getting richer; the poor are despised, ignored and treated like dirt. Of course, the rich will proudly boast of their 'charity' - which is token and done for the cameras.

Yet, most of the locals are in abysmal Denial of all. And will believe whatever the TV tells them to think.

I pray for the souls of these virtual "zombies" daily.

On the latest issue of the Garabandal  Journal  the cover story is about Bishop Vicente Jiménez Zamora of Santander officiating a Mass on May 6, 2012, concelebrated with nine priests, at the restored San Sebastián de Garabandal village church.

It was obviously a great and emotional event. However, what was most interesting was the absence of the three remaining visionaries from such special occasion.

Last year, when the 50th Anniversary of the first apparition in San Sebastian de Garabandal was celebrated, only one of the remaining visionaries was present.

The reader may draw his/her own conclusions. In the meantime we remind our readers of the Note we published almost two years ago:

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.

Did you know that..... the level of social and moral decadence represented in the well preserved ruins of Pompeii were of such magnitude that consideration was given to bury again what had been unearthed and to stop any further digging?

This should be a reminder to the world that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, by the same means, must be taken as a reality - both in cause and effect.

From miguel de Portugal

We wish to remind and encourage each and everyone of you to offer prayers for the handful of members of religious orders, clergy and hierarchy who are truly loyal to God and who are trying to serve Him as He Wills it. These poor servants of God get caught in the crossfire within the Church Administration and outside. Eventually they are stuck in some obscure corner where their edifying effect amongst the Faithful is lost.

Pray to God that He grants them the consolation and support they need to serve Him as  He Wills; that they feel His presence and comfort so that they may boldly go forth and deliver valid Sacraments to the children of God who are thirsting for such spiritual nourishment worldwide. Amen!

Please do! In spite of our quasi unbearable schedule we still offer one full decade every day for such very needed intention and will, henceforth, offer the intentions of a Mass on a weekly basis for such purpose.

[17] But you, my dearly beloved, be mindful of the words which have been spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, [18] Who told you, that in the last time there should come mockers, walking according to their own desires in ungodlinesses. [19] These are they, who separate themselves, sensual men, having not the Spirit.

[20] But you, my beloved, building yourselves upon your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, [21] Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto life everlasting.

[22] And some indeed reprove, being judged: [23] But others save, pulling them out of the fire. And on others have mercy, in fear, hating also the spotted garment which is carnal.

[24] Now to him who is able to preserve you without sin, and to present you spotless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, in the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, [25] To the only God our Saviour through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory and magnificence, empire and power, before all ages, and now, and for all ages of ages. Amen.

In Straubinger's translation (3), in verse 18, the word used is "impostors" and not "mockers".

[18] que os decí­an: "En el último tiempo vendrán impostores que se conducirán según sus impí­as pasiones. [19] éstos son los que disocian, hombres naturales, que no tienen Espí­ritu.

A. Obviously "mockers" is a softer word than "impostors" and it achieves the objective of not reminding the faithful of the overwhelming danger of impostors amongst the clergy and the laity. But it is even better, in their eyes, to avoid the verses altogether.

Just yesterday we were approached by a Portuguese faithful for an opinion regarding a "holy" Deacon in their parish in Portugal.

It turns out that the Deacon's wife died and he rightfully collects the pension due to her in Portugal. In the meantime, he decides to remarry - we have no idea of the status of this lady but let us assume that she can legitimately marry. However, if he married this lady he would lose his deceased wife's pension.

Solution: Cross the border, get married with his second wife in Spain and, since the marriage is not recorded in Portugal, he will not lose the pension.

This is not a secret in the twin Portuguese-Spanish communities which share a border since he is a well known businessman. The question/complaint from the parishioner was: How can he preach morality when everyone here knows what he is doing?

Of course - we used to hear similar questions from both communities regarding their parish priests back in 1993! Many went back to the Sacraments when we explained to them the difference between the Catholic Faith and the Catholic Administration. Coherently enough the teenagers were the most receptive to the differentiation. You see, they were young enough not to have already replaced God with the Institution and its Bureaucrats. As it is the case on a worldwide basis, the older folks had already made the switch to full fledged idolatry.

From miguel de Portugal

I want to sincerely thank those who offered prayers and the intentions of Masses to help me pay the "blank check" (payable in corporal suffering) that I  placed in the Hands of God recently.

It appears that the "check" has been "funded" in full. I have no idea what He will use (or has used) the merits associated with that "blank check". If He does reveal that to me in the future (sometimes it happens, sometimes it does not or I just simply miss the message), we will let you know.

May God Bless your great charity and spiritual cooperation.

Caritas in Veritate - Benedict XVI's Call For Global Government


miguel de Portugal comments:
This is the most blatant assertion of the Opus Dei's version of the Saving the World plan being uttered by the highest office of the Roman Catholic Church. What is the Catholic world at large reaction? Yaaaawwwnnn!

Catholics, as well as the rest of the world, should remember what happened as the result of that same attitude towards the requests made by God through Fatima (1) - that time by the Administration of the Church (since the Faithful at large were kept in the dark by Rome.).

Let no one - no one! - bank on a Divine Mercy which will not materialize itself any more than it did when World War II officially started on September 1, 1939 (2). The results, so far (the consequences of such attitude have not been played out yet in its fullness), tops 100 million dead and untold suffering.

Pope Benedict XVI has celebrated an open-air Mass before some 850,000 followers as part of three days of activities in Milan aimed at showing support for families. (1)

miguel de Portugal comments: When the False Christ's trumpet is blown from the Vatican, most will fall at his cloven hoofs just like these 850,000 blind sheep fell at the feet of Ratzinger.

From (Mr.) LP @ US

Your 2002 document on Russia: Confirmed by events.

I am researching your site for my new document on the False Christ, and found a 2002 document (1) where you wrote:
 
==============================

It is not difficult to discern why the "Kettle" and the "Pot" are at odds.

The Opus Dei leadership must understand that the chances of hell freezing over are greater than their chance to penetrate and subvert Russia with their "theology" (2) any time before the period of the Antichrist.

The Opus Dei will only achieve this after the period of the Antichrist... when the time of the ultimate snare is sprung on humanity: The manifestation of the False Christ.

==============================

Bingo!
 
Under John Paul II, the Kremlin and the Russian Patriarch stood strictly aloof from Rome. After the installation of the Antichrist (Ratzinger), relations between the Vatican and the Russian Orthodox have warmed measurably. The Catholics and the Russian Orthodox are now collaborating politically, even though their theologies remain far apart.
 
It will be interesting to see what happens next.
 
LP

A. Thank you for the opportunity to bring this up to our readers who were not onboard back in 2002.
