Letters/Questions - Addressed on  November and December 2004


From AB @ U.S.A.  [Published on December 30, 2004]

We refer the reader to the original letter from AB and our response published on December 18 (See under the letter of December 27). The following is AB's response to our posting. We wish to continue this thread just this far to illustrate with one single example how Arrogance fed by Ignorance nourishes the Sin of Denial.

 Q.   In reply to all this cataclysmic information you have gathered I offer two items one from the Old Testament and one from the new:

(1). Remember when Jonah had finally warned Nineva that after forty days they would be destroyed? And remember that the people immediately repented from the king down to even all the animals? At that point Jonah went upon to a hill overlooking the city and awaited God's destruction of the city. He murmured against God for not destroying them as He said because Jonah would look like a fool if God relented.  God then got angry with Jonah for expecting a display of God's wrath after the people repented; God then withered the shade tree that he had provided to Jonah for his comfort, thus dealing with Jonah's morbid curiosity of the predicted impending destruction and not allowing God to change His mind..
 
(2). Who has the mind and heart to revel in these cataclysmic predictions?  "Unless you shall be like little children, you shall not enter the
Kingdom of Heaven."
 
Amen Brothers and Sisters.

 AB


 
A.  In Jonah's time God relented and did not destroy Niniveh because from the King on down, the citizens of Niniveh repented from their evil deeds and offered prayers and fasting to the Almighty in retribution for their sins.

Unfortunately, this good behavior by Ninivites was not long lasting and finally God completely destroyed Niniveh - never to be rebuilt again. The Prophet Nahum is quite graphic (1) as to the final fate of Niniveh.

Sadly enough, even though Mary has been warning mankind through an obviously deaf and dumb Church Administration since early 19th Century, there has been no repentance. On the contrary - even the Church has chosen to defy God while turning a profit with His Mother's Apparitions.

God has given mankind some very serious "hands-on" warnings to see if it would respond. World War I is spite of the warnings of La Salette, et al.
World War II and the rise of communism, thanks to the Roman Catholic Church "prudence" cost ca. 150 million deaths and untold suffering, in spite of the clear instructions through F�ima. The Massacre in Rwanda in spite of the warnings through Kibeho. The brutal Spanish Civil War which yielded to the world the Escriva heresy and what is to come from that. The worldwide sexual scandal "sponsored" by the Roman Catholic Church which has just done about everything to destroy the little Faith left on Earth.  The September 11 tragedy in New York and Washington, DC, which only yielded a very temporary and brief soul-searching period. And...

....As if that were not enough, God has allowed the very area of the world which has become the center of Sexual Tourism for the depraved to be brutally struck by earthquakes and tsunamis which, when all is said and done, will cost over one hundred thousand lives.

Centuries later we repeat:

Mt 16:3-4 O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?  A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.

and

Mt 23:33-37  Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?   Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

You ask:
"Who has the mind and heart to revel in these cataclysmic predictions?"

We respond: "Only those who have ears to Hear and eyes to See!"

 How dare you! question God's motives for sending whomever He chooses to warn His children before is too late?
 

Stop your fruitless research on Marian Apparitions and drop to your knees and pray to Almighty God to send His Holy Spirit to lead you out of the Mortal Sin of Denial so that you may stop confusing the poor and already disoriented Faithful who are desperately trying to find their way back to God - the True and Living God and not the mockery which has been set up by man!

We sincerely thank you for the opportunity to address this issue in the clearest possible way.

From PB @ U.S.A.  [Published on December 27, 2004]

 Q.   I thought you might be interested in this: Bush supports cross-hating movement - President's father also praises work of Rev. Moon-linked clergy group.

  PB


 
A.  Being that the headline and article you kindly forwarded to us was published by WorldNetDaily.com,  and being that from that same organization mass mailings with viruses, pretending to be from us, have been made  - we do not trust them.

Nonetheless - we went to the original source of WorldNetDaily.com information - an article entitled "Tear Down the Cross". The comprehensive and well referenced and illustrated article "speaks volumes".

We have published an article by Lee Penn regarding Mr. Moon and his messianic impostures entitled "The One World Religion :  The Details - Learn to Recognize Them"  and another, from the same author and published in the The Christian Challenge entitled  "Lawmakers Ambushed For "Coronation" Of Unification Church Leader and  Wife".

We advise one and all to carefully review all three documents lest the theo-politcal deception gets the best of you.


From AB @ U.S.A.  [Published on December 18, 2004]

 Q.  Dear Sir: I read on your website that Our Lady is or has warned us about an impending nuclear holocaust; however, I am familiar with most of
her messages for the world starting at F�ima and up to the present time at Medjugorje.

At F�ima she warned of another war if men did not repent; that was in 1917 and the W.W.II did indeed occur. In Medjugoje her messages begin June 25th, 1981 and continue at least monthly. I collect, study and disseminate these messages. In all these messages since F�ima, I am not aware of her warning of a nuclear holocaust.

Please advise. Thank you.

A B


 
A.  There are other Marian warnings besides the ones you have mentioned. In Japan - Akita. In Spain - Garabandal. In Italy - Rosa Mystica. To mention three key-for-These-Times warnings.

However - to save you from trying to discern from all those warnings as well as the ones from F�ima - yet to be fulfilled - please understand:

The Sequence that we have presented was given to miguel de Portugal by God and the nuclear holocaust will take place. That will be the "Miracle of the Sun" equivalent for whatever miguel de Portugal has been claiming in the Name of God for 13 years. When it happens - the deaf will finally hear what he has been trying to get across in the Name of God.

We thank you for the opportunity to make this issue crystal clear.


From LP @ U.S.A.  [Published on December 15, 2004]

 Q.  It seems that someone associated with the Vatican is marketing a souvenir calendar with photos of handsome young (adult) seminarians
and priests.

Does this all fit with the nude statuary in the halls of the Holy See that you wrote about?

LP

 
A.  Perhaps these references that you have sent explains the Church mentality reflected in the article we wrote about abundant nudity in the great Churches in Rome.  Perhaps what you have shared with us is a bit more disgusting coming at the heels of a still ongoing sex scandal within the ranks and at all levels of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Home Page of such promotion begins to tell the tale; but when we see the Press Coverage it is obvious that the Church authorities are quite aware of this and are looking the other way - or, for that matter, looking at the young handsome priests and seminarians who, with their superior's approval, are posing for this.


From VA @ Australia  [Published on December 8, 2004 - Feast of The Immaculate Conception]

 Q.  Hi!

A friend had sent me the following email.
 
While  I don't know anything about the laws of physics, it does sound logical and correct. I thought it had some interesting points for anyone who does not believe in God. Are these laws of physics true or is this just rubbish?
Thank-you. God Bless
 
V. A.    

=========================== 

The university professor challenged his students with this question. "Did God create everything that exists?"

 A student bravely replied, "Yes, he did!"
 
"God created everything?" The professor asked.
 
"Yes sir", the student replied.
 
The professor answered, "If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then God is evil".
 
The student became quiet before such an answer. The professor, quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the Christian faith was a myth.
 
Another student raised his hand and said, "Can I ask you a question professor?"
 
"Of course", replied the professor.
 
The student stood up and asked, "Professor, does cold exist?"
 
"What kind of question is this? Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?" The students snickered at the young man's question.
 
The young man replied, "In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (- 273 degrees K) is the total absence of  heat; all matter becomes inert (that is - the electrons in an atom come to a complete standstill - motion comes to an end since there is no energy to sustain it) and incapable of reaction (motion) at that temperature (because heat, that is, the manifestation of energy, is completely absent).  Cold does not exist. We have created this word to describe  how we feel if we have no heat."
 
The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?"
 
The professor responded, "Of course it does."
 
The student replied, "Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can study, but not darkness. In fact we can use Newton's prism to break white light into many colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light can break into  a world of darkness and illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of light present. Isn't this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present."
 
Finally the young man asked the professor, "Sir, does evil exist?"
 
Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course as I have already said. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil."
 
To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the  absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is not like faith, or love  that exist just as does light and heat. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light."
 
The professor sat down.
 
The young man's name --- Albert Einstein


 A.   We have no idea if this story actually took place or not; however, the principles of physics and semantics are sound - read: CORRECT.  This is a very simple and straight forward way to show people, who use the presence of evil as proof of the lack of a true and living God, that they are wrong. They should also be shown that God even utilizes evil for the benefit of His children since God is truly Master of All!

To deepen the knowledge and reality of this concept - but in a dynamic form - the writings of St. Teresa de Jess (de �ila) : Interior Castle is highly recommended.


From JLU @ Mexico  [Published on December 1, 2004]

 Q.  Could you give us your opinion about the following article which appeared in World Net Daily regarding H.H. John Paul II's remarks in reference to Mr. Arafat's death? Could this be H.H. John Paul II speaking or, as you have pointed out before, someone has placed these words in his mouth?

In said article,  Rabbi Shmuley Boteach states:

But the most painful and disgraceful reaction of all to Arafat's death, from the quarter where it was least expected, came from Pope John Paul II's jaw-dropping comments voiced through his mouthpiece, Joaquin Navarro-Valls: "At this hour of sadness at the passing of President Yasser Arafat, His Holiness Pope John Paul is particularly close to the deceased's family, the authorities and the Palestinian people.

While entrusting his soul into the hands of the Almighty and Merciful God, the Holy Father prays to the Prince of Peace that the
star of harmony will soon shine on the Holy Land. ..." In a second statement, Navarro-Valls said in the pope's name that Arafat was "a
leader of great charisma who loved his people and sought to lead them towards national independence. May God welcome in His mercy
the soul of the illustrious deceased and give peace to the Holy Land. ..."

That the world's foremost spiritual shepherd could describe himself as being close to Arafat's family, rather than the thousands of
murdered men, women and children who were Arafat's victims, is an astonishing act of sacrilege. That the most influential religious figure alive could describe the death of a tyrant as "an hour of sadness" and call a mass-murderer an "illustrious" soul is positively despicable.

That the Vicar of Christ on earth could say of a man who stole billions from his impoverished and desperate nation that he "loved his
people" is an affront to everything Jesus stood for, which was primarily a dedication to the oppressed, the poor and the persecuted.

In making these damnable statements, Pope John Paul II, whom I otherwise so greatly admire, has tragically proven himself to be walking in the sinful line of his immoral and cowardly Nazi-collaborator predecessor, Pius XII, a man who demonstrated an almost callous indifference to the value of human life and never once summoned the courage to condemn the Nazi Holocaust.

 

 A.   First of all, we do not accept, and reject, a Rabbi lecturing the Christian leadership about Christianity. If he really understood Christianity he would not be a Rabbi, but a Christian Shepherd - period!

Secondly - The statements ascribed to H.H. John Paul II do not - directly or indirectly - address Mr. Arafat's political stance from an "absolute" point of view; he was addressing the stature of this man and the pain his death meant as viewed through the eyes of his people and his family.  H.H. John Paul II's did not call for victory of the Palestinians over Israel - he rightfully invoked peace in the Holy Land. He further invoked God's Mercy upon Mr. Arafat's soul.

Frankly - even if Mr. Arafat was the personal enemy of H.H. John Paul II, he did exactly what Jesus clearly told us to do - and precious few Christians ever do! - "But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father..." [Matthew 5: 44-45]

We do, however, have a piece of advise to the Rabbi: Do not be too concerned what other religious leaders are doing and, instead, pick up the Tanakh and study it. It is obvious that many Jews still have not learned what all the prophets listed in the Old Testament were trying to teach them.

Yes - we can and have the authority to lecture a Rabbi on the Tanakh because the Tanakh is part of our own Sacred Scriptures and Faith, but they cannot lecture a Christian because their ancestors, and them by association, rejected the deliverer of the New Testament, which, as stated before, if they spiritually understood, they would have accepted by now.

May our response be a silent message conveying the fact that, we, amongst Christians, may criticize and denounce what we may see wrong within the practice of our Faith and the behavior of Christian leaders, BUT, it is best that outsiders do not attack Christianity with destructive criticism (constructive criticism is always welcome!) if they do not wish us call their bluff and, using American slang, "mop the floors" with their claimed self-righteousness.

Mr.
Shmuley Boteach's Article


From TC @ USA  [Published on November 26, 2004]

 Q.  May the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Holy Spirit guide me in asking a question of you.
 
I have found your website by looking for the Divine Mercy devotion, among other devotions. I have been reading it for several weeks now. You speak clearly, thoughtfully, and truthfully it seems to me.

I am a Catholic trying to say “yes” to the Lord as best that I am able. Since reading your website I have been drawn to daily Mass. I started going this week this is a big change. I am doing action instead of thinking about action.

I am moved to pray for the intentions of the pope, to pray for conversion of sinners, dedicate my hearing of the Mass to Mary's Immaculate Heart, and for reparation of sin my own and for others. Also, I pray for the souls in purgatory.

My Faith has been “augmented” I thank you for that. Peace of mind is another thing.  I have read your take on the state and events in the church. I think you may be mostly correct.

We seem to be at the “end of these times”. In looking at what other “end time” mystics and seers are saying I am bothered by “Coherence”.  In particular a website dedicated to the “little pebble” with links to AOT  Alliance of Truth.

This is very “Theological” reasoning (beyond me) offered there about who the “little pebble” is and how he fits in to the “end times”.  Would you look into it? Does its message cohere with Truth? Or should one stay away from it?

I will be plowing through “Veritatis Splendor” I am trying to find the truth to do my part as best I can and to guide my family for their eternal good.

May Our Lord Jesus Christ Bless you and keep you.

Sincerely in Christ

TC

 A.   Your kind words Glorify God, and within those words you have answered your own questions and concerns.... What have the documents from The M+G+R Foundation that you have read done for you? You yourself state:

Since reading your website I have been drawn to daily Mass. I started going this week this is a big change. I am doing action instead of thinking about action. I am moved to pray for the intentions of the pope, to pray for conversion of sinners, dedicate my hearing of the Mass to Mary's Immaculate Heart, and for reparation of sin my own and for others. Also, I pray for the souls in purgatory. My Faith has been “augmented” I thank you for that. Peace of mind is another thing.  I have read your take on the state and events in the church. I think you may be mostly correct.

On the other hand,  when you come across the many self appointed end times "mystics and seers" you are correctly troubled by lack of Divine Coherence and ask us for an opinion. These self appointed mystics and seers and their "visions and prophecies" are precisely what was meant by Revelations 12:15 - "The serpent, however, spewed a torrent of water out of his mouth after the woman to sweep her away with the current."

The woman is "the truth bearer" and the referred to "torrent of water" is designed to sweep away the truth.
 
As you see, you have answered your own question about  the "little pebble" and others. You will be further edified and fortified as you "drink" the nourishing contents of H.H. John Paul II's Veritatis Splendor

May the Holy Spirit of God continue to guide you so that, you in turn, lead your family to the True Light - Jesus Christ!


From J/C @ USA  [Published on November 17, 2004]

 Q.  I read with interest this article posted on your website, The Seven Capital Vices of the Movements, and have witnessed first hand all the issues the author addresses.

It was distressing to me because I belonged to a movement within the Church for many years, although not one of those mentioned.  It was within this community I was indoctrinated with a deep love of the Universal Church, and placed beneath the Cross of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

I credit this community with the formation of my faith.  It gave me the direction I did not get in the greater Catholic community. Because of the example given to me by the members of this community I have seen the gospel incarnated in poverty, meekness, gentleness and deep reverence for our Lord and King.

As I said I witnessed the issues mentioned in the article, but within this particular community I never saw them come to fruition.

Obedience and humility were the rule, and submission to the Church authorities.  But with divisions and factions becoming the norm it is nearly impossible to know which way Mother Church is going.

More and more I see that Our Lady did not appear on the earth with just some nice advice.  She really is the one Jesus has given us to bring us through times so confused and evil that no one else could lead us.  I consider myself a daughter of the church, and I pray daily that our Lord will make me so.

In Christ, 

L/C  

 
A.   Thank you for a lovely witness. You were certainly Blessed to have found such group which, obviously, was intent in serving God, like the Blue Army of F�ima, without a hidden agenda like most, i.e. The Marian Movement of Priests.

We wish that more of the faithful would realize, as you have, that the Ever Virgin Mary does not come to Earth because She has nothing better to do. She, as our true Mother - the Church IS NOT our Mother -  is truly concerned about the winds of disorder which have been blowing through the Roman Catholic Church since the early 19th Century.  Let us not forget that the French Revolution is the child of the abuses committed by the French Nobility empowered by the Church. Just like it has happened in the 20th Century in Latin America, i.e. Pinochet Regime in Chile, Fujimori in Per, amongst others.

On the "Mother" issue - Mary was declared Mother of the Church by H.H. Paul VI ate the closing of Vatican II,  for the Church, composed of the living stones, which are the faithful, and well anchored on its foundation - Christ - is the Mystical Body of Christ.

The "Mother Church" concept is another Vatican invention designed to psychologically manipulate the faithful better and its has no theological nor mystical foundation.


From LR @ USA  [Published on November 12, 2004]

 Q.  The election of George Bush has left many of us in shock.  I live in New Hampshire.  I do not belong to any Fundamentalist church.  I  pray daily for world peace.  I pray daily for the USA.  I pray daily for those I love and those I do not love.

I learned respect for other's beliefs.  Now I am told that I am one of those people who  is not considered "Moral" because I voted for Senator Kerry.

I am shocked that it really happened, that so many citizens of the US  believe that morals' is more important than war, killing, responsibility as a citizen in the world above all else.

How many of us stormed Heaven with our prayers that Sen. Kerry win?  How many of  us knew how terrible these times will become very soon?  I must remember though that millions came out to vote against Bush.

I am  shocked that those people tricked into voting for Bush will never see the trick of how they were maneuvered.

I am in such shock I  have been unable to pray for the past few days.

Pray for those of us who didn't vote for Bush.

 LJR  

 
A.   We are also in shock, but for a different reason. What part of the Posting of November 6 in our News Commentary did you not understand?

miguel de Portugal does not make the Rules. He, in His Name and as a true gift from God - NOT from m de P, explains step by step what is taking, and will take place so that all may see the Loving Hand of our Creator extricating ourselves from the horrendous situation we have placed ourselves in - AGAIN! - after the Flood of Noah's time. This should be consoling to all His true children - like you.

Therefore, we must ask this question: Where and How are we failing in discharging our Divinely Appointed duties?

Is it that we have not made clear enough what Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us in Gethsemane?     "... Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me:  nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done." [Lu 22:42 ]

We are encouraged to ask what we may personally desire, but we MUST ALWAYS defer to the Infinite Wisdom of God!

Is this so difficult to understand?



From TJ @ USA  [Published on November 3, 2004]

 Q.  The question I have, and the one point on which your website leaves me with some degree of doubt, is in your self-certainty and seeming lack of fear that you may be wrong about even some finer points.

 Some examples might include some of the more widely disputed Marian apparitions, such as Medjugorje, or your certainty of the evil of St. Escriva and Opus Dei, or the degree to which you dismiss the authority of the Catholic Church.

 Let me state for clarity that the point is not to argue any one of those points right now, but to suggest that what I understand about the spirit of humility and submission that has been shared by all of the saints would appear not to allow for such certainty.

 Still, bluntness is not a sin, and prophets are not known for pussyfooting their messages, so this is not a reason for me to dismiss you.

 The question that stands is, do you have your doubts, do you struggle as most saints did to discern what God's message to you is, and do you worry that when you are sure it is God's word you are hearing, that you may in fact be deceived and be spreading Satan's errors mixed with much truth?

 If he has laid snares for us everywhere, how can we be sure that those snares don't include the exciting realization that we see through the deception placed out there to snare the masses.  The easiest way to snare a spy is to create a trap for him to discover and excitedly dismember, maneuvering himself into the position you want to put him into.

Thank you for your patience in reading this and your perseverance in what is overall a very valuable service you perform for all.

Best regards, and God bless you.

T J

 
A.   First of all, we Thank You! for your communication as well as for the opportunity that you have given us. Actually - your question was taken by miguel  de Portugal (m de P) as a cue from God to address this issue now.

First of all - you, as most Roman Catholics, unconsciously, grant more power to satan than to God. As we have explained elsewhere, satan has no other choice but to serve God Who Is above all; He Who contains, yes - contains, the Universe must be served by all without exception.

Without searching far for illustrations of this - Review the first chapter of the Book of Job and a certain Chapter of  the First Book of Kings.

Why do most Roman Catholics feel and act that way? Subtle programming by the Church Administration to better manipulate and push the faithful through Fear as opposed to lead the faithful through Love, as St. John Bosco demonstrated to the world when he lived what Jesus taught.

Of course satan exists (in spite of the claims of the modernists) and he has a field day on those who are away from God. Teresa de Jess (de �ila) illustrated that very well in her book Interior Castle; however, if you were in my presence, now we could show you in less than 60 seconds its mechanism. Not because m de P is very smart, wise or holy. No! It is because God showed it to him just like He revealed to him the Secret Concept of the Most Holy Trinity and how the Power of Love works.

Anyone who believes that satan can interfere between God and someone who has chosen, not be default but by the Grace of God, to serve Him blasphemes for he/she is ascribing more power to satan than to God.

I believe that it was Teresa de Jess who said that it if it was the Will of God that she should go to hell, she would joyfully do so for she wanted to do His Will above all. Utilizing this same line of true thinking and logic - satan can only snare m de P to the extent God may allow it; and if He does, it is because it will be good for m de P and teach him a lesson that he could not learn otherwise. Thus, was it really a snare? Was satan interfering with God's work? Of course not! satan was serving God as he has to do without choice!

Does m de P has doubts at times? Of course! That is his assurance for not drifting away from God and become self-reliant as the Church Administrators have at the expense of fulfilling the plans of God. The day m de P cease having doubts - he is finished! Just like the Church is now (albeit only temporarily); only good to trample underfoot as the salt that has lost its power [Luke 14:34-35].

Regarding disputed Marian Apparitions - specifically Medjugorje. It is amazing to us how blind people are since we have been accused of fully endorsing Medjugorje. We have said that the original Bishop of Mostar was right when he endorsed it and also right when he condemn it.

 Do we need to call Daniel to read that handwriting in the wall
[Daniel 5:13-16]. People! Please! - invoke the Holy Spirit of God more frequently so that all that needs to be clear to each one of you, then becomes clear. The Holy Spirit of God IS NOT just a white dove to use as decoration!

You ask about m de P's certainty about  his allegation regarding the flawed theology of Escriv�/a> and his dubious holiness. m de P knew that Escriv�s work was not from God even before he knew anything about them. Then, without seeking it  and as it is customary - God starting to shower m de P with concrete and factual proofs to confirm what He had already revealed to him supernaturally.

You ask about
"The degree to which m de P dismiss the authority of the Catholic Church."  As you have noticed, we defend the Catholic Faith to the extent few individuals can - because God rewarded our Faith with Knowledge. That is - m de P no longer "believes"; he "knows". You will see him going to pray to a cemetery for eight days starting on November 1st to secure eight Plenary Indulgences for the souls of purgatory. Why? Because he no longer "believes", he "knows" that it is true and his dear brethren trapped in Purgatory need our attention.

You will also see m de P partaking of the Sacrament of Reconciliation every 3 or 4 weeks. Why? Because he knows "how it works" and how valuable it is.

We only dismiss the authority of the Catholic Church Administrators when, and as God Wills it, to protect the little Faith left; - that is, the Faith that they have not managed to destroy (yet!) through their 1600 years of serving Mammon and not God!

Is this dismissal, or the degree of it, any different than the dismissal of the authority of the Church predecessor, the Temple Masters in Jerusalem, by John the Baptizer, Paul and even Our Lord and Master Jesus Christ?

Should the faithful believe what miguel de Portugal states and instructs? We have addressed that in his brief biography but, recapping: That is frankly not the concern of miguel de Portugal. His only concern is to  transmit what God Wills and strive to do so in the most clear form for the Faithful to understand.

Brothers and sisters - it is that simple! Complications result from "prudent" men who label everything as "mystery" to better manipulate the faithful.

Once again, Thank You! for the opportunity and for presenting such a thorny question in such a proper manner.


From CH @ New Zealand  [Published on October 31, 2004]

 Q.  My attention has been so drawn to the various Marian apparitions and the events surrounding them, that have happened over the years, that I now question what is the purpose of our lives at all?

If we are so sinful and doomed, what real hope is there for humanity? Why would we continue living our day to day lives as we do - for what purpose?

Unfortunately I have allowed this preoccupation to infiltrate many aspects of my life and leave me with a feeling of hopelessness.

CH

 
A.   "What is the purpose of our lives at all?" you ask. Well, to answer that question, and to shed some light upon the rest of your concerns, we must first share with you the purpose of Creation - as revealed to m de P by God.

We must remember that God created us in His image. That is, if we take any of the traits found in a human being, except sin, of course!, and raise it to its maximum perfection - that is how "God Is" in that particular aspect - be it Love or Mercy or Justice, etc.

With that as a backdrop, we shall then ask you: When you (and most humans who are not psychologically ill) experience a situation/event which makes you very joyful, what is the first action you wish to take? Isn't it to share that joy and happinness with someone?

God lives in perfect Joy and His Love is perfect. Therefore, if we, miserable as we are, wish to share our joys and love with someone, God, Who Is Perfect, Willed to do the same in a Universal Scale, thus He created the Universe, to sustain us, so that He could have us to share in His Joy and Love.  It is that simple!

We were to live in a Paradise-like state, as depicted by Adam and Eve before the fall, but God, in His utmost perfection, allowed us a
Free Will; man misused it and fell.

Since satan, out of jealousy, caused our fall, thus, the missing the original opportunity to live in the company of God in Eternal Happiness, God had to devise another plan to "get His children back on track."

He sent His prophets; they were killed. He sent His Son to show us the Way - Jesus Himself - the Word Made Flesh - but His physical body was killed also. However, Being God incarnate, Jesus left
a concrete legacy  that would help us journey through Time with a minimum of difficulties, so that we could finally be reunited with Him and "retake" the Blissful life that God, the Father, had originally intended for us to have with Him.

In comes the Church Administration
and sells itself, thus thwarting again God's Joyful plans for His children. He then utilized several humans within the Church to force the Church Administration back on the right track. Francis of Assisi was one of them - from the cross He commanded Francis to "repair His Church" for it already was almost in ruins! That did not work well either - as it may be easily discerned by the condition of the world today.

God then sends the Perfect Daughter (of the Father), the Perfect Mother (of the Son) and the Perfect Spouse (of the Holy Spirit), Mary, with ever increasing frequency since early 19th Century,
to urgently call us back to the Gospel - to the Way Our Lord Jesus Christ had shown us. She was even the Hostess to the greatest Miracle ever witnessed by so many humans at once in October 13, 1917 at F�ima, Portugal, as to underscore the urgency of Her messages then.

To no avail.... Marian Apparitions are turned by the Church Administrators into Profit Centers and into a tool of manipulation and control while criminally betraying their responsibility.

You ask: "What real hope is there for humanity?"  The hope is that God, in spite of our sinfulness and the scandalous betrayal by the Church He founded, will no longer depend on any man or group of men to help us back to Him; He will now "handle it" Himself.  We find great hope and consolation in that because man, of himself, as manifested in organized religion, has proven to be utterly worthless as the result of his fallen condition.

You also ask:
"Why would we continue living our day to day lives as we do - for what purpose?" For the purpose of assiting God in His direct intervention by "paving the way" so that the suffering that awaits mankind is minimized while Divine Justice is being dispensed and prophecy fulfilled.

Do not be preoccupied nor feel hopeless. Join us, the true children of God, in preparing the world - through individual and collective prayer, acts of reparation and Evangelization, through example, to greet Him and enter with and through Him the true Promised Land of Justice, thus, of Peace.

"How come the Pristine Catholic Faith reached us in spite of the betrayal of the Church Administrators?", you may ask. Because, as we have stated numerous times before, even satan must serve God for He is the only Creator and truly Almighty Who Is above all!
