Letters/Questions - Addressed on  September - October 2004


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 Fátima, 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!

 Obviously we are not making ourselves clear enough.  We trust that this should now do it!

 
From MW @ USA [Published on October 19, 2004]

 Q.  Regarding the Pro-Life and Pro-Choice debate, specifically the point that convinces me that the Bishops' exhortations to vote against John Kerry are not sincere, is that neither George Bush 41 nor George Bush 43 has ever ever done anything substantive to overturn the US Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision.

Their positions are simply pandering to the religious right wing of US society.  Actions speak louder than words.  The Bushed are happy to be perceived as ProLife while doing nothing with their temporal authority to truly affect a change. Nothing sincere or substantive.

Why are the Christians in the US blind to this fact?

From GCrazy9 @ USA [Published on October 15, 2004]

 Q.  You people have a smidgen of Biblical understanding and a glut of goulash of Biblical ideas, most of them not coming even close to accuracy, or truth. Better ask Mary (it is not definitely the Mary of the Bible you are referring to, she would have a fit if she knew that you catholics are making an idol of her, and a god), whoever she is who you are referring to. Your religion is just that - religion, and I do not see anywhere in your writings where you have a personal attachment to Jesus.

(naturally - Unsigned)

From P @ USA  [Published on October 15, 2004]

Q. I have only one point to contend regarding your article about the removal of the cross. The article has been posted that the ACLU would remove the cross as the symbol of christianity.

I went to a private lutheran school in the US until 8th grade.  I was taught that the symbol, while powerful, is interesting to ponder in this day and age.  Imagine a hypothetical christian wearing an electric chair or gallows around her throat.

 I do not believe that the cross is what Jesus would have left for humanity as the lasting symbol of His works. Christianity is about the resurrection, not the execution of Christ.  This is why Easter is the most important christian holy day.
 
It is important to meditate upon the sacrifice of Christ, but I do not agree that trying to reach out to other religions by simply de-emphasizing a questionable icon is an anti-christian doctrine. Outside of this conversation, we should worship Christ and the Trinity, and not be hung-up on human representations and iconic images.

Who's to say, for example, that the "cross" was actually as popularly depicted?  There is no biblical information that the means of execution looks like a lower-case "t". Many Roman crucifixes were single posts, or even posts "tied" to other execution posts.
 
God alone will sort us out, and to second guess Him is blasphemy.  The best we can do is love God, and love our neighbor.  To quibble over minutiae is dangerous.  "We" do not make God judge by earthly rules, He judges by His own. Live and let live, introduce the Good News if possible.  All other gum flapping is just that.
 
I realize that this will never be responded to, nor will it appear on your web site.  I hope that my understanding of the Truth may be enough to cause you to at least further meditate upon the actions which you have set in motion.
 
P
 
PS Just in case the Christian God is listening, I am a actually an agnostic.  However, I still feel that to have invoked the Lord's name in my quasi serious post may be blasphemous. Just in case, I wink and smile at the end of most every sentence, and give a "thumbs up" to "the Man" (er, God).


A.  
We have chosen to respond/comment upon these two letters at the same time because they share one common thread: They accurately reflect the perception the multitude of errors Catholics incur in the practice of our Faith. If we were going to have one single answer to both letters it would be: Based on what you perceive, yes, you are right. On the other hand, based on what it really should be  you are not right.

Therefore - the first comment that we shall make is: Thank you for writing; Thank you for your sincerity and Thank you for the opportunity that you have given us to help clear the air.

It is obvious that GCrazy9 has not read many of our documents judging by his statement: "You people have a smidgen of Biblical understanding and a glut of goulash of Biblical ideas, most of them not coming even close to accuracy, or truth."  We have already referred him to several documents which he has obviously missed while recommending him to become better informed before launching a verbal attack. Let us not make the nonexistent Iraqi Weapons of  Mass Destruction - "Oops!" - a way of life.

Regarding to the Virgin Mary - the Mother of Jesus Christ - thus the Mother of God (but not the Primary Cause - since That is God, The Father). Unfortunately, Catholics have idolized Her in practice and the Shepherds have not  corrected such behavior. The Catholic Faith - in its pure state - honors and reveres Mary but does not "adore" Her. Although conceived without the original sin (the sin that we inherited from Adam and Eve), She is a human being like all of us - except in sin.

We also frequently encounter in the improper practice of Catholicism the  "adoration" of statues or icons of Mary. This is so widespread - especially in Europe - that we find it extremely disturbing and distracting. Statues and icons are intended to be used as we use pictures and statues of loved ones and/or those we wish to honor in a grand scale (a statue in a park, etc.) - as a reminder BUT NOT the object of adoration/devotion. When said objects become the focal point of the prayer, etc., we have fallen into full fledged idolatry.

By the time (7th Century) the Prophet Mohammed was sent by God to remind and correct Christians and Jews about their wayward ways - Catholics were well into the erroneous road of idolizing images, icons AND people! This was the beginning of the Catholic Church and the Pope becoming the objects of our faith instead of keeping God as the ONLY object of our Faith.

The "problem" with the cross does not lie far from this situation. After all - it was under the Sign of the Cross  that the Roman Catholics slaughtered the Eastern Catholics when they sacked Constantinople or when they slaughtered the residents of Jerusalem - Muslims: mostly women and children - to recuperate Jerusalem for Christendom (never mind that the Catholics abandoned Jerusalem to begin with and settled in the seat of the Roman Empire to pray in Latin instead of staying in Jerusalem to pray in Aramaic) - a monumental blasphemy against God.


However, because of the countless betrayals to the Goodness of God by those who claim to act in His behalf (killing, maiming and sacking AND NOT forgiving), we cannot rescind the mystical value and meaning of the cross; a meaning that cannot be equated with an electric chair or the gallows. Both of these instruments are used to kill those who rather not die. That is - they are dragged to their death "kicking and screaming": An involuntary death.

The cross, with or without the body, should remind us of Love and not death and hate as Mel Gibson has tried to do. Jesus voluntarily died for us because He loves us and wants to give us the opportunity (this is not automatic)  to spend Eternity with Him. Something that we frankly find quite appealing:  Spend an Eternity with someone who loves me so much, miserable as I am, that was willing to suffer and die just to give that opportunity - an opportunity which I did not have before. We could not think of a better "traveling partner".

In addition - the cross has the mystical component - which was first revealed to man through Moses. We read in Numbers 21: 5-9:

Nu 21:5    And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.   Nu 21:6    And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

    Nu 21:7    Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.    Nu 21:8    And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

   Nu 21:9    And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

The "serpent" = "sin" ; "dead serpent on a pole" = "dead sin on a pole" ; "Jesus died for our sins on a cross" = "dead sin on a cross".  When we look/contemplate/accept/love Him on the cross - we can be "cured"  (inspired to conversion) and not "die", a death which is final, if it is entered in mortal sin and rejecting the Mercy and  Salvific power afforded by the Passion-Death-and-Resurrection of Jesus (this rejection is the much talked about "Sin against the Holy Spirit").

Historically, the Romans crucified thousands utilizing a basic cross design. Without a doubt, for "entertainment" - a la Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad,  they used other means to torture and kill their enemies. However, it seems that there is a consensus that a typical/basic cross was used for the crucifixion of Jesus. Why argue with that? As you wrote, P:
"To quibble over minutiae is dangerous." Or is it that it depends whose "minutiae" we quibble about?

The movement to remove the cross has a mystical hidden symbolism which is: "Deny the cross". We would not recommend doing so. Invoking the same caution as in your  PS: "Just in case" that God prefers a cross, we shall stick with the cross. However,  if you do not prefer to wear it or venerate it - we accept that, as you surely would accept us wearing it and venerating it and adore Whom it represents.

Keep in mind, P, you may be wrong on the issue of the cross as you were when you stated: "
I realize that this will never be responded to, nor will it appear on your web site."

May God Bless you both richly!

 
From B @ USA [Published on October 13, 2004]

 Q.  May I ask a favor of you please. I am not certain if the enclosed article is 100% true as to what Catholics believe about Halloween or not. Could you please read this article and let me know your thoughts.  I'm confused because some of it sounds very anti-Catholic but I''m not sure. I would like to forward this article on to my prayer group.

Thank you so very  much.
Blessings,

B


A.   For the benefit of the readers at large, following are some quotes from the submitted article:

Rev. Theresa Quinto Pavone TEACHING ON HALLOWEEN -  Copyrighted 1997
 
Christians should not celebrate Halloween because its customs and practices come from an  ancient, pagan (Celtic) festival of the  dead.  Therefore to participate in Halloween is to serve the devil; Christians should not celebrate Halloween because pagans and satanists still observe it today as an -  holy day;....
 
FACT 7 -- While the Roman Catholic Church Christianized the "Vigil of Samhain" on November 1 and called it "All Souls Day" or "All Saints Day" as it is sometimes called today, the satanist religion claimed it for their hallowed eve. Coincidental? No. The Roman Catholics as Christians, felt that if  they could not stop the pagans from celebrating their festivals, that they (the Catholic Church) would  include them. Hence the old vantage, "if you can't fight them, join them" comes in....

COPYRIGHTED 1997 Rev. Theresa Quinto Pavone, instructor

The M+G+R Foundation Comments

Yes, the roots of Halloween may be found in ancient pagan practices. No, we do not recommend the "celebration" of Halloween any more than we would "celebrate" the anniversary of  Roe vs Wade when taken as a law promoting abortion.

Yes. The Roman Catholic Church Christianized this pagan rite, as it did with many others, to assist the new and/or potential converts in the transition from paganism to Christianity. This was done by instituting the Feast of All Saints on November 1st - celebrating the Saints already in Heaven and the Memorial of All Souls on November 2nd - seeking the prompt release of the souls which are still in Purgatory.

When she writes "if you can't fight them, join them", we do not think that she meant that the Roman Catholic Church just changed the names and continued the same pagan rites.

Unfortunately, as the saying goes: "The way to hell is paved with good intentions.", (*) and the All Saints and All Souls days did not become popular and replaced the old pagan mentality. This is another by-product of the failed Evangelization of the Roman Catholic Church which was, and still is, more intent in temporal power than in spiritual power.


Temporal power cannot root out evil since satan is the Prince of this world. Only engaging the power of God, as it was originally done, evil can be rooted out. Result: The celebration of Halloween persistent and now it is being spread to every nation which "we have liberated" by means of aggressive consumerism.

St. Michael, the Archangel, defends us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,  Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God  thrust into hell satan and all the evil spirits which prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen!

(*) Like the frequent invocation of "prudence" by The Vatican to protect the Church at the expense of the Faithful.


From BW @ USA [Published on October 9, 2004]

 Q. I did read the note added on Oct. 5 on your How to Vote Document.  Even after re-reading it I still thought you were encouraging that Catholic to vote for Mr. Kerry.  I am not always able to discern your writing, sorry, and I am sometimes unable to clearly express what I want to communicate.  (Yes, I realize that that is part of "these times")
 
 But our bishops are clearly NOT leading us and haven't been for a long time....
 
 ...The average Catholic who accepts things at face value may not realize that "remote material cooperation" is STILL a grave evil - and unfortunately once again the clear issue is muddied by our church leaders!!
 
I realize that you usually don't directly answer - that you want us to think and pray - but still feel that your page is saying it's ok to vote for
Mr. Kerry....
 
If I have misunderstood your page, I apologize.  If I do understand it, I beg you to rethink your answer.

Sincerely,

B W


A.   Please understand: We ARE NOT recommending anyone to vote for Kerry, for Bush or whomever. We are trying to teach
people how to access God on-direct (on this matter and all others) since the Shepherds are too busy taking care of their very,
very worldly affairs.

We fully endorse the concluding statement from Cardinal Ratzinger:

     N.B. A Catholic would be guilty of formal cooperation in evil, and so unworthy to present himself for Holy
     Communion, if he were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate's permissive stand
     on abortion and/or euthanasia. When a Catholic does not share a candidate's stand in favour of abortion and/or
     euthanasia, but votes for that candidate for other reasons, it is considered remote material cooperation, which
     can be permitted in the presence of proportionate reasons.

 Read: Kerry may be barred from communion but a citizen may vote for him "for other reasons" and it will then be considered remote material cooperation, which can be permitted.... etc. etc.

We wish we could do more at this time but there are 6 billion other people out there who also fall under our tutelage. God is the Father
of all - not only of Catholics - and others are in far worse spiritual condition that Catholics are today.

We are neither at the service of the Church nor at the service of man. We are the service of that Father, then, as a result, we are at the
service of man.  That is the order of priorities set by God in the First and Second Commandments. Those are the priorities we follow.

We are happy that we have been able to serve you in the past.

May the Holy Spirit of God continue to guide you.


From LR @ USA [Published on October 7, 2004 - Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary]

 Q. I am 56.  I was married in 1971 in the Sacrament of Marriage at my Catholic Church.  Ten years later I knew I was gay.  I didn't   feel it was fair to my husband, who I still loved, to keep him married when it wasn't his fault.  I left with much sadness and much   disgust from many relatives.

 I couldn't understand why I was welcomed at the altar rail on one day and the next day when I felt I   had to tell the truth about my orientation, I was no longer welcomed.  I knew in my heart that I still believe in my Lord Jesus Christ.

 I knew He would never have turned me away from his table.  I have been in a 23 year committed relationship with another  woman, who also had a strong love our Lord.  Over the years we became celibate, still strongly loving each other.  We couldn't lie about who we were. 
  
 Then I had a great gift from the Holy Spirit, Who I pray to as much as to God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and Mary His mother.  I knew my Lord and His Blessed Mother had not turned away from me. 
  
 The Gift of The Holy Spirit allowed me to use my being gay as a way to know when my Lord was not truly worshiped in some  peoples hearts.  It gave me a new way to assess behavior.  I knew when I go to Heaven I will neither be male nor female.  I know  it will be compassion and love that will mean the most. 
  
 I know that many people are fooled by George W. Bush as he claims to be a moral man who worships God.  I don't doubt that  he prays daily as I pray for him daily.  People turn away from Kerry believing that he approves of abortion.  He believes in  "choice".  He would prefer that the woman and her mate not have the abortion, but he wants to protect her right to have a choice  that is between herself and her Lord.
  
 I have been listening to the Republican convention and I have been so afraid that George Bush will win.  I was heart broken 4  years ago when he won the election. Why can't people see by his actions how much hate and lies he can tell.  They believe in him.

 I have had to face much prejudice over the years, have been told to my face I should be in a concentration camp.  I am afraid.  I  know that God is in control, but I am still afraid if Bush gets in it will push us closer to God's wrath.  How can I view this in  another way.

I pray, but my fear is still there.  Thank you for the time you take to read this.  My Our Lord continue to bless you  with clear vision.

 LJR from USA 


A.  No. This is not political propaganda. As we have stated before - We are not concerned about politics any more than our Lord Jesus Christ and John the Baptizer were nearly 2000 years ago.  HOWEVER, when a politician starts claiming that he/she acts in the Name or on behalf of God, it is the function of miguel de Portugal to step in.

First of all: I, miguel de Portugal, do not recognize Mr. George W. Bush as an agent, representative or servant of God. In his innocence he may believe so and people utilizing him may want him to believe so, but he is not.

Secondly: If the faithful would take the time to carefully and prayerfully review this poor frightened woman's letter in the light of our document about homosexuality and the tremendous importance that nourishing the God seeking soul with Living Bread has, it should not be difficult to discern who truly is behind denying the Holy Communion to those who in earnest seek to rise in the Light of the Lord.

It is to the Glory of God, their true Faith and the loving hearts of LJR and her companion that, even being profoundly in love with each other, they lead a celibate life.

We see more love, more true Christianity and submission to the Divine Will in L and B's lives than we see amongst those who populate the church pews and consider themselves the true guardians and believers of the Faith - clergy included!


From MA @ USA [Published on September 29, 2004]

 Q. I've been reading your website for a few months and I find it to be very interesting and enlightening most of the time. Would you call yourself a prophet or someone that's just more in tune with the Holy Spirit than most of us? And do you live in Portugal because "the dogma of faith will always be preserved"?

Also -  There are so many prophecies, and I pray that I believe the right ones,  I have noticed that some of the Protestant prophecies coincide with some of the Catholic ones, like the "Warning", but yet I can't find the Warning in Revelations. If it's the trumpets, why doesn't it say anything about a huge spiritual awakening in that chapter, did I miss it? I don't want to depend on the prophecies, I want to depend on the Holy Bible.

God Bless you,

Love

M


A.  It is not for miguel de Portugal to state who he is or whose shoes does he occupy at the End of These Times. God will reveal that to whomever He Wills and whenever He Wills it.

Indeed we all must depend on the Holy Bible as a Fount of Living Waters. Prophecies are mostly warnings given by God, directly and indirectly, to assist humanity in minimizing the suffering that awaits it if  it does not change its evil ways. Therefore, it is more important to prayerfully study and implement (in one's lives) the Word of God than to be chasing around for the latest prophecy.

Prophecies from different faiths coincide in many instances. This occurs even across major Faith lines. It may come as a shock to religious fanatics but... God is the Father of each one of us - Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, Muslims and, yes, Pagans too! Isn't He going to try to bring them back to the fold on His own since organized religion is more concerned with perpetuating itself than being a bridge between man and God?

The "Warning" has been announced in the Scriptures (and not necessarily in the Book of Revelations). Let God show you in His Own time and in His Own loving way.


From KD @ USA [Published on September 26, 2004]

 Q. I have often wondered what Jesus meant when He said "heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away."  Did Jesus mean that
heaven will not last throughout eternity?  Thank you for considering my  question.

Sincerely,

KD


A.  No. The "heaven and earth" which "will pass away" and about which He is speaking of,  are the "old ones"  and about which we read in the Book of Revelations [21:1] as being renewed.  We will take this one step further...

When the last 1,000 years spoken of in the Holy Scriptures 
[Rev 20] - the same period about which the Vatican continues to trip over trying to explain it and not contradict themselves -  are concluded [Rev 21:1] - which should be on or about the year 2,832 A.D. - the created universe will cease to exist. Its purpose would have been fulfilled.

With the Final Judgment behind us, we should then live Eternally with God in the new "heaven and earth", in which, if you notice, logically  "...the sea was no more."  These "new heaven and earth", which are Eternal, are also created as the "old ones" by the Word of God, Which Is Jesus Christ Who, of course, Is Eternal.

We pray that we have not confused you. For additional information about "Time and Eternity" you may want to review our document explaining them further.

From VS @ USA [Published on September 22, 2004]

 Q. How could you put a sinner, spreading all kinds of lies and sin on your page?   You may be used by the Devil I suppose because we are close to the end of the world.   I'll pray for your souls. 

 VS

NOTE: VS is referring to a private note sent only to those in our mailing list. We chose to do so since we presumed that our regular readership surely knew exactly where we stood. Obviously many of them still do not. Therefore, we have chosen to respond to some of their comments in the Public Forum for the benefit of all. This is the second comment/response.

A.  Thank you for your prayers.

Regarding your communication: For your peace of mind, we recommend that you pay closer attention to what we say, who to, how and what for. Please read the Note above as well as the response to JA dated September 8.

Next: When will you people realize and accept that God is above all and satan must serve Him too? Nothing can occur in this Universe unless God allows it!

We have illustrated this clearly a number of times through some of our documents, i.e., Regarding Mental Reprogramming, where an obvious enemy of God published, and we then distribute far and wide, how they attack, with the intent of destroying, the Faith.

Regarding to the article you specifically refer to - and which was circulated ONLY those those we thought knew where we stood, and that obviously does not include you: He highlighted very well the serious problems that we saw in Gibson's version of the Passion of Christ. If one needs raw gore to learn to love Christ - he/she has a very real problem. That is not love, that is guilt and oppressing guilt is not of God. 

In better days, the best suspense movies were by Alfred Hitchcock. Seldom a drop of blood was seen in those movies, yet, some of them were terrifying. That was good suspense technique. Now the public is fed blood and gore because subconsciously they crave such deviant stimulus.

What Mr. Gibson did was to feed that subconscious and disordered desire for blood and gore.  God does not need that for His children to love Him. What kind of a god is that? That would be typical of a pagan god - the god most commonly adored by humanity today.

We will take this one step further and give you and all a little glimpse as to how that movie will be utilized towards the end.

 In the near future, when the FalseChrist (not the AntiChrist!) is about to make his entrance, clips from Gibson's movie will be used as subliminal brainwashing, inducing guilt so that the disoriented sheep will be more pliable to accept the FalseChrist.

Why? Because the FalseChrist will not be able to inspire love - which is an intangible feeling that only God can give us, thus, in the absence of love - guilt will be used so that the False Christ is "loved".

No, Mr. Gibson does not know that - he is just another willing instrument, fueled by fanaticism, preparing the stage for the False Christ.

And finally. How many times do we have to repeat that we ARE NOT approaching the end of the world. That is precisely what satan wants people to believe so that they despair. Obviously you have fallen for that trap. We are approaching the END of THESE TIMES and NOT the World!

We shall now return the favor and pray for you.


From PC @ USA [Published on September 19, 2004]

 Q.  how is it that we pray for Divine Mercy on the world and at the same time hope for and pray for the Divine Justice (the
Great Purge) to happen?

Always questioning my motives,
The Hopeful One

PC

A.  First of all:  We pray for Divine Mercy for the world so that it, like the sun rises for and the rain falls on the just and the unjust alike [Matthew 5:45]. Whether it is taken advantage of or not depends upon each individual.

Secondly: We should pray that Divine Justice is dispensed in accordance to the Will of God, while at the same time we must seek through prayer and acts of reparations (see response to AQ below) that the suffering is minimized while prophecy is fulfilled.

In other words - We should not attempt to stop the crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ just like Peter should not have tried to stop the crucifixion of the Physical Body of Christ [Matthew 16:23]. But we should, as Peter, et al, should have done instead, make every possible effort so that the suffering that must be experienced is not one iota above the absolute level necessary for the "deaf to hear". Remember - "Pain is the megaphone that God uses for the deaf to hear".


From AQ @ Australia [Published on September 19, 2004]

 Q.  What can I do about:

Priests saying Sister and Brothers, (not Brothers and Sisters);
Priests not doing the Commingling;
Priests wearing only the Stole;
Priests (offering peace) shaking hands with all and saundry;
Priests refuse to give communion on the tongue.

These have been done at each  and every mass for some three  months while our own priest is on holyday. We are forced to go elsewhere to  various Churches.

A.  First of all:  Immediately start offering prayers and sacrifices directed at these type of priests. Invocation - "We/I offer (this) as an act of reparation for the  sins and offenses that XYZ have  committed for which Divine Justice demands reparation before God can work the pleasure of His Mercy in XYZ soul(s)".

How this works - or as much as m de Portugal is able to explain in human terms - is explained in SUFFERING : MANKIND'S PARTICIPATION IN ITS OWN REDEMPTION
 
Secondly: The following document, Redemptionis Sacramentum, explains in great detail and very clearly how the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass MUST be
offered. It also gives specific instructions to the faithful on how to proceed (all the way up to the CONGREGATION FOR DIVINE
WORSHIP AND THE DISCIPLINE OF THE SACRAMENT) if the procedure is repeatedly violated.

Do not let any human being stand between you and God and His Sacraments! As you can see, He has seen to it that multiple recourses are available to the Faithful to correct was is wrong.

 Q. Could you please tell me what is meant by the "deposit of grace"? The context in which I am speaking about the "deposit of grace" would be when Our Lord ascended into Heaven the basic structure of the Church was complete.

By His death He merited for us the graces of salvation. My son's 8th grade religion book is stating that we call this the "deposit of grace" which is dispensed to us through the sacraments of the church.
           
Thank you so much.
Blessings,

B

A.  The only one who could be considered - stretching the concept - "deposit of Grace" would Mary, Who, by being Full Of Grace is empowered by God to dispense them. Something She made very clear during Her Apparitions at Rue de Bac, France, (the Apparitions associated with the Miraculous Medal), and something which m de Portugal knows, not just believes.

The Church, through the Sacraments, which we do not tire to extoll, bestow upon the faithful Graces; however, the Graces are of and from God and not the Church - regardless of what claims its Administrators may make.

Those Graces are not a requirement for salvation - true faith in Jesus Christ as the Saviour of mankind and the reality of His Resurrection, are the ultimate requirements. However, those Graces are a tremendous gift because they provide supernatural assistance as we journey through time - which, as most humans know - has become a veritable mine field.

In very simple 8th Grade terms. The Graces are like water from God and the Church is like the pipeline utilized by God to get His water to the faithful. As you can see - there is no "deposit" in this system, except Mary, Who could be seen as a water reservoir - between the "source" (God) and the "end user" (the faithful) with the Divine Granted freedom to route it to whomever She deems merits it.

We pray that we have made it clear enough.

 A Reader's Comment  I'M SURE MANY OF US JUST CANNOT BELIEVE IN A NUCLEAR DISASTER IN THE USA, just as we  couldn't believe anyone could cause 9/11. When reading about it in this public forum we can easily set it aside because the '"M+G+R may be overly sensitive to disaster".  Today I tuned into a program on Public Radio out of Washington, DC. I don't know the guest but his name was Graham Allison.
           
 I believe the Holy Spirit was giving us an open warning well publicized by a Public Radio broadcast.  He talked of all the ways a Holocaust could happen, stating a bomb so small  that it could fit in a backpack can now produce a blast the size of Hiroshima.  Our elected  officials focused our attention on Iraq... instead of working toward  resolution.  This web site has told us many times the multiple reasons why our officials should want to do this.   
           
Mr. Allison stated what actions could be taken by nations to avoid this.  He stated we need to treat the nuclear problem like GOLD.  The USA and Russia both have wealth that is so strongly guarded no one can get to the gold.  (1) Lock down the nukes, with the USA and  Russia leading by example just as they protect their gold. (2) Negotiate with all other  nations to do the same.  (3) No loose nukes.  An example was North Korea who sells nukes
to anyone.
           
I thank our Lord for making such a public announcement through media that can reach  many.  Obviously He can no longer trust the Catholic Religion to do it.
            
M+G+R Foundation, please, please continue to do your mission.  It is up to the rest of us to  make the changes.  My prayers continue for all.  Thank you.

LJR

A.  Your kind words Glorify God Whom we strive to serve.

Our posting in the News Commentary today should make even the deadest of Zombies begin to realize that we have not been issuing these warnings since 1991 (first, through individual communications to those whose decision moved millions of people into action, and then through our Domains too) to "fill an empty life". We take this opportunity to remind one and all, again, that miguel de Portugal had a real life (a life as most people on this world will never know first hand) when God called Him away to start issuing these warnings with plenty of advance time.

Now, time is just about out.

From JA @ USA [Published on September 8, 2004 - Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary]

 Q. Is this the same Matthew Fox that was defrocked and is a new ager????

 JA

NOTE: JA is referring to a private note sent only to those in our mailing list. We chose to do so since we presumed that our regular readership surely knew exactly where we stood. Obviously many of them still do not. Therefore, we have chosen to respond to some of their comments in the Public Forum for the benefit of all. This is the first comment/response.

A.  We have been informed that Matthew Fox is the former Dominican RC priest who left the RCC rather than obey an order to be silent, and he became an Episcopal priest in 1994 under Bishop Swing.  He is famous for the notions of "creation spirituality" and "original blessing," and for offering syncretic, but drug-free, "techno cosmic masses."

First of all, because we privately shared a document authored by him, does not necessarily mean that we agree with everything else he stands for, such as: Notions of "creation spirituality" and "original blessing," and for offering syncretic, but drug-free, "techno cosmic masses."

Those who have been with us for some time know that we have on-line (it was temporarily withdrawn to be soon reinstated) probably the best exposé of the New Age movement authored by Lee Penn with our explanation of its ultimate objective.

Secondly, the fact that Fox was defrocked - in today's Church - is almost a badge of merit. After all, most of the thousands of priests who physically and spiritually raped our children have not been defrocked and neither have the Bishops and Cardinals who were accessories of their crimes by promoting, by the actions, the rape of our children.

If that were not enough, Law - one of the worst offenders - has been placed in charge of the most important Marian Basilica of the world - St. Mary Major, in Rome. That is an abomination, an attack on the Catholic Faith and an insult to Mary.

May the Holy Spirit of God Illuminate you, brethren of the Hierarchy. You have precious little time left before the Invoice is presented and God has promised me, through Psalm 91, that "A thousand may fall at my side, ten thousand at my right hand, but it will not come near me. I will only observe with my eyes and see the punishment of the wicked."


From PD and MAK @ USA [Published on August 28, 2004]
 
 Q-1.  How could you encourage your readers to vote for Mr. Kerry, a man that only votes for abortion and stem cell research from aborted babies?  P.D.

Q-2.  I don't agree with the article your referred to me on How to Vote and think he's off base, particularly when he says if the person feels as she does she should go ahead and vote for Kerry and let God stop her if it's against His will. That is nonsensical!  We are called to use our God-given judgment
to use it.  That means making the effort to gather the facts and make intelligent assessments of them.
 
By the way, I am not a Bush fan and do not intend to vote for him.  But Kerry has disqualified himself from consideration by his evil positions. Real Catholics cannot vote for him.  MAK

 A-1 & 2. We thank both of you for this great opportunity to clarify some points that obviously were not made clear in said document.

First of all, we are not telling anyone how to vote as the clergy often do from the pulpit in open defiance of the teachings of Jesus Christ, on Whose behalf they claim to act. We are attempting to help His children find their way back to Him by understanding "how the Heavenly system works" so to speak.

Since we do not believe in any kind of war nor capital punishment - if the faithful wishes to take "death" as the only "Yay" or "Nay" point of reference to make a voting decision - we would say - stay at home or nominate and vote for a candidate who truly upholds the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Now regarding the statement from MAK "... if the person feels as she does, she should go ahead and vote for Kerry and let God stop her if it's against His will. That is nonsensical!  We are called to use our God-given judgment to use it. "

 Please note that in the How To Vote Document, miguel de Portugal wrote:  "If I  were in your particular situation...." 

This is clearly meant to convey to the reader that the response on how to act would be only applicable to those who are truly His people.  He will never allow any of His own to make a mistake unless it is the only way, with minimum detrimental consequences, that that particular child of His is to learn a very important lesson (and wouldn't you want to make that mistake?).  And who are His own? "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and put it into practice."  [Luke 8:21]

Somehow  those self righteous, traditionalist, orthodox, right wing activist, holders-of-the-truth, etc. Catholics take it for granted that "they are part of God's inner circle" while they blatantly ignore what Jesus, through Luke (see above) taught us.

Then, when they hear...

"I know you not, whence you are".  Then you shall begin to say: "We have eaten and drunk in thy presence: and thou hast taught in our streets."   And he shall say to you: "I know you not, whence you are. Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.   There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth; when you shall see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God: and you yourselves thrust out.   And there shall come from the east and the west and the north and the south: and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.  And behold, they are last that shall be first: and they are first that shall be last."   [Luke 13:26-30]

...they will be greatly surprised; but then, it will be too late.

Brethren - everyone is being warned with ample time for the "Claims, Complaints  and Adjustments Window" in Heaven will soon be shut down. Whether you believe miguel de Portugal or not does not increase nor decrease his merits before the Throne of God, only doing His Will by issuing the warnings and providing the guidance He Wills, will do so.
