In reference to your recent mailing (*)... The Good Friday collection from the faithful was Dirhams 325,000(approx.)
The Easter Sunday collection was Dirhams 375,000(approx.)
The Lenten Sacrifice collection collected in brown envelopes distributed to the faithful throughout Lent was
There are guys contributing there, who toil in the hot desert sun six days a week for less than 50 dollars a week.
With 3.67 Dirhams making a US dollar, the total amount converts to approximately, 380,000 US dollars. And this is just one parish in the UAE. No wonder B16 can afford pomp and bonuses.
God Bless us!

Quote (from news report) (**):
The 80th birthday of Pope Benedict XVI is being
marked in style at the Vatican. The music-loving pope
will be guest of honour at a concert, and he will host a dinner for his
cardinals. Tributes will be paid, and commemorative stamps will be
The Vatican's employees have another reason to celebrate the
pontiff's birthday. Not only are they getting the day
off, they will receive a bonus of 500 euros (£340; $676).
Just as Jesus would do, right?
Finally all is beginning to make sense.... the "Faithful" know the face
of B XVI and predecessors but they certainly do not know the face of
Jesus Christ, do they?
Therefore, why pay attention to Him whose face is not known, just like
that of miguel de Portugal, when they
have the well known face of Constantine in statues and coins

May Our Lord's Peace be yours always.
Dear Miguel de Portugal,
(Did Our Lady not say that the Faith would stay firm in Portugal)
I bring you news that I hope will gladden your heart as it does mine. I
have asked to be admitted into the Antiochian Church, Western Rite
Parish of the Holy Annunciation.
If the fact that this Church was not placed almost directly across the
street from me was not a sign, then the following surely is:
+ I attended my first
Sunday Mass there. I have been prohibited from doing so until now
due to my job. The Lord, despite my prayers to the contrary, saw
fit that my job was lost.
+ I accepted His will, and attended Holy Annunciation this
+ As you know, one of my concerns in the past was the loss
of my devotion to the Rosary. Low and
behold, the parish began a study of the Rosary this very morning, and
will incorporate it into their prayer lives.
It will be some time before I am allowed the Sacraments, and that will
be hard. But I believe that to wait for my inclusion in these
mysteries is right, and I will follow my Lord's will.
In Jesus name I thank you for your kindness, and the fact that you were
there to help me find my way home.
P.S. Is not Our Lord and Awesome God?

In reference to
your recent mailing about NGTV.... (*)
This takes me back to a 1960 science
fiction story by Arthur
Clarke (**). I read it almost 40 years ago, and never forgot
it. The title
was "I remember Babylon." It was a tale about a meeting
and a former TV executive friend who had gone over to the Chinese
Communists. This ex-TV man was going to start a satellite TV
beyond the reach of US censorship, to beam pornography, violence, and
Communist propaganda into the US - and the traitor expected the
Americans to lap it up.
The last line of the story is one of the things that I always
remembered: " 'History is on our side.' I cannot get those
words out of my head. Land of Lincoln
I love you and wish you well. But into my heart blows a cold wind from
the past; for I remember Babylon. "
If this TV network comes to pass, it
will fulfill Clarke's
prophecy. And who knows, maybe some of the investors will be from
China - they certainly have the dollars to fund it.

Due to the lack of valid sacraments in the area in which
I live, and the virtual impossibility of travel on a regular basis to
some place where I could be assured of such validity, I am not able to
attend mass on a "normal basis".
So, I spend Sundays (and this Triduum) in prayer - Rosaries,
Litanies, Chaplets, Via Crucis. I also watch what good religious
videos/tv programs are availible. I consider this as a sacrifice on my
part, which I offer up to God in reparation for my sins. Yet, as
painful as this is, I consider this an opportunity for a deeper
spiritual communion with God. N.B.: I do most firmly believe in the
purpose and efficacy of the Sacraments.
In the early days of the US (especially prior to the Civil War)
there were NO Catholic churches in most parts of the country. Catholics
might go weeks, months, or even years without seeing a priest or
hearing mass. Yet, those who wished to could and did remain steadfast
in the faith. They spent Sundays in prayer with family. It would seem
that now, in all too many places (as per your document on
Transubstantiation) many Catholics here are now "in the same boat" with
This means that I, and many like myself, are left much as the man
baptized by the Apostle Philip on the wayside. Given the Grace to
believe, Baptized into Christ, but left without any visible form, or
organizational structure in which to express our faith. As I would see
it we are now on our own - since we no longer have trustworthy clergy
to guide us and spiritually nourish us. We......myself
included.......must learn to worship Christ personally, in our hearts -
to really love Him. To learn to be in His presence all the time - not
just for an hour on Sunday, thence forgetting about Him.
I think that in the past I was guilty of not truly loving Christ
enough, even though I did really believe in Him. I think I was one of
those who was guilty, to some degree, of worshipping the external
trappings and human organization.........not necessarily always Christ
Himself. Perhaps not literally confusing the one with the other, but
not making the all important distinction......enough, or all the time.
Years ago I made the statement that; "mass said on a rock in the middle
of the woods can be holier then one said in the most beautiful church
in the world". I do not know how I came to that realization, as I was
so in love with the externals. I knew there was truth in this, but I
did not yet understand it fully. However Our Lord gave me that thought,
it was something I was supposed to learn. To focus on Christ. Somehow,
at some level, I always knew this. But like a seed planted, it must
bloom as God waters it.
Be assured of my prayers for your intentions on this Easter!

In reference to Cardinal McCarrick's statement to the New
Zealand Media that ".... church's approach to sexual abuse is
"Uncle Ted" Mc Carrick is either literally mad, or under demonic
influence. Maybe both. Aside from the inherent ludicrousness of the
statement itself, he is personally responsible for the cover-up
of clerical sexual abuse. In his stints as a high ranking Chancery
official in the Archdiocese of NY, and as secretary to Cardinal
Spellman. Plus in his stints as Bishop of Metuchen, NJ, as Archbishop
of Newark, NJ, and as the Cardinal Archbishop of Washington DC. In each
of these assignments he personally knew of and orchestrated
cover-ups of clerical sexual abuse of minors. This included hiding and
shuffling around the guilty parties - and shielding them from criminal
& civil prosecution.
He acquired the moniker of "Uncle Ted" for his fondness of
(literally) sleeping with chosen young priests & seminarians in
these dioceses - particularly the Archdiocese of Newark. In Newark he
personally hid and defended from prosecution one Fr. Kenneth Martin,
who was accused of committing repeated lewd acts on teen aged boys in a
parish in Jersey City, NJ.
All of this has been attested to by the testimony of NY/NJ area
clerics - mostly anonymously. Additionally, it is the subject and prime
focus of the Federal lawsuit filed in US District Court in Manhattan by
Rev. James Hoatson, based upon his formal sworn testimony under oath,
plaintiff, upon information and belief, alleges the defendants MYERS,
EGAN and HUBBARD are actively homosexual, as well as Cardinal Theodore
McCarrick of Washington, D..C., who the plaintiff previously worked for
Due to the fact that the defendants MYERS, EGAN and HUBBARD along with
McCarrick and leaders in the (Christian) Brothers are or have been
actively engaged in a homosexual lifestyles, these bishops have been
compromised in their positions and status as an employer by predators
and pedophiles in ministry and motivated to retaliate against the
plaintiff for exposing criminal acts, corruption, immorality, hypocrisy
and criminal acts by predators and amongst bishops.
The defendants have acted to retaliate against the plaintiff's whistle
blowing and/or protected actions in an effort to protect themselves,
protect their lifestyles, and protect the culture of secrecy with
respect to an overwhelmingly greater proportion of homosexuals in
ministry, than celibate or heterosexual priests, and ultimately to
protect, enable and aid predators or pedophiles in ministry or
religious life, or those who have left the church for these reasons at
the expense of children, the vulnerable and/or the plaintiff.
Note well that Archbishop John Myers of Newark is publicly
known to be a member of Opus Dei.
To use your terms, aside from being a liar, Mc Carrick seem to suffer
from acute Denial
You remain in my prayers.

Blessings to you on Easter.
returned from Easter Mass. The homily was boring and I am sure
inspire the audience (as noted by their body language).
you know, I had hoped that the homily would focus on Divine Mercy
Sunday since the smart money is betting heavily that these people will
not be back again for maybe another year. It did not happen.
many years ago during my last year of medical school at Johns Hopkins
in Baltimore, MD I took a trip with my best friend and my then
girlfriend and we did a compressed tour of the South (1700 miles in 3
days) hitting all the scenic points (we were history
buffs).... and ended
on Easter Morning at a nondenominational service at Duke University in
pastor pointed out that, if not for the resurrection of Christ, there
would be no Church. Somehow in all my years of attending Mass, no
Catholic priest ever said that, although that was obvious.
I encouraged my family to participate in Divine Mercy
Sunday. My oldest daughter called yesterday to tell me
Catholic Church will not forgive my sins."
told me that during confession she noted that she had not been to
confession since before she was married. When she told the
she had been married by a Navy Chaplain and to a Methodist, he
the Chaplain was Catholic. No he was not. Because of
this, the priest
told my daughter that she would first have to get her
by the Church, otherwise he could not forgive her sins.
to her that this is a classic example of why there will be
left when Jesus returns. I assured her that Jesus has forgiven
sins and that the priest along with all the others will have to answer
for this. She is not sure that she wants to continue with the
Church. No problem. Stay close to God and all will be
I couldn't help but focus on this and the pomposity of the RC high
command during Mass today.
Enough is enough! Yes I am praying for this
priest and all the others.

In the past I have used a few different versions of the Way of the
Cross - different editions/by different authors both old and newer.
When you lamented that few visitors to your site had looked at the
version of the Via Crucis, I decided to look at it. Now I had been
using a version in an old prayer book I had for my devotions, and
decided to read yours. I then printed it out and used it for my
I cannot thank you enough for your version!!!
very few words
the scriptural references and meditations speak volumes. In fact, I
think they say a lot more then the more flowery, verbose versions one
finds in many prayer books - like the one I had been using. There are
no words to describe how thought provoking and leading to
compunction for my sins this spiritual exercise was. This was of far
more benefit then any other Via Crucis I had done before.
My sincere thanks!

This is (*) exactly what I have
been trying to convey in some previous mail. Thanks for expressing it.
Surprisingly, it is the church goers, especially the ones for whom life
is going on smoothly in financial and health terms, who would be least
affected by the warnings published by you. Just go to church on Sunday
and you're going to heaven. That is what they believe.
I wonder if it is their version of "not shedding needless tears". No
tsunami, no signs in the heavens, no earthquake, no war seems to have
any effect. "Don't worry guys. Relax! Chill!" - is the message.
They take the "Do not fear, I'm with you," part of Jesus' message
seriously. But not the, "If you love me, you will obey my commandments."
We can only pray. Thanks for the reminders.
Love in Christ Jesus,
(*) VR is referring to the following communication which
went to our Select List:
We are sharing with you the "State of
the Faithful" so that you may
have a good handle where we are at.
We published in our Board on March
26th an announcement/reminder of the
Stations of the Cross.
Even with such Highlighting only 0.61 % of the pages
viewed in our Domains corresponded to the Viacrucis.
If we post anything about the much
talked about "Planet X"
increases greatly and, we presume, if we publish anything about Paris
Hilton or Britney Spears our servers will go on Melt Down.
Thanks be to God that "we are not on
commission" and thanks be to God
that He showed me
why I should not shed needless tears.
May you have a Blessed Holy Week!

I was also thinking today, I am

life as an example, I am not sure what else to do.

not want this, and I wonder if at the moment of death, these people see
the light and are saved. If not for this kind of miracle, it

I somehow cannot believe that God would allow this. I have
right to judge what God wants, but at this late date, if we continue on
our current trajectory, most people will not find God. The other

helps me to think harder to see if there is anything else I might be
able to do.
realize that the path is the narrow gate, but it seems such a waste
that so many will not make it. I am hoping that God provides some
of window of Mercy at the end. I'd like to think that He has done
