Dear Miguel,
 
You showed great wisdom in citing "satan's board meeting." (1)
 
It is not overt evil that is the problem, it is the lack of charity in all things.
 
The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference.
 
As creatures of God, many of us are simply indifferent to the wonders of God.
 
It is impossible to contemplate God if we spend all of our time and energy pursuing the "disposables" of this world while ignoring the eternal treasure of God.
 
What will it take to get our attention?  (A rhetorical question.)
(2)
 
Peace


RC

(1)  Minutes of satan's Board Meeting

SATAN'S BOARD MEETING

Satan called a worldwide convention of demons. In his opening address he said, "We can't keep Christians from going to church." "We can't keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth." "We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their Savior." Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken." "So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ."

"This is what I want you to do," said the devil: "Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"

"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.

"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds," he answered. "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow." "Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty lifestyles." "Keep them from spending time with their children." "As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work!" "Over-stimulate their minds so they cannot hear that still, small voice."

 "Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive and to keep the TV, VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays non-biblical music constantly." "This will jam their minds and break that union with Christ." "Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers." "Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day." "Invade their driving moments with billboards." "Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products, services and false hopes."

"Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands will believe that outward beauty is what's important, and they'll become dissatisfied with their wives. " "Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night." "Give them headaches too!" "If they don't give their husbands the love they need, they will begin to look elsewhere." "That will fragment their families quickly!" "Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children the real meaning of Christmas." "Give them an Easter bunny so they won't talk about his resurrection and power over sin and death." "Even in their recreation, let them be excessive." "Have them return from their recreation exhausted." "Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect on God's creation. " "Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies instead."

"Keep them busy, busy, busy!" "And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so they leave with troubled consciences." "Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to seek power from Jesus." "Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family for the good of the cause." "It will work!" "It will work!"

It was quite a plan! The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get busier and more rushed, going here and there. Having little time for their God or their families. Having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change lives.
 
As even the casual observer can see, satan's strategy worked better than he ever imagined because, as we "advance" technologically, the results he yearned for increase exponentially.

Dear Miguel,
 
You did an excellent job in integrating the Muslim Holy Days in the calendar (1) which already includes the Jewish and Christian Holy Days.
 
It is striking, but not surprising, that many of the Holy Days are shared by Christians, Jews and Muslims, but not for the same reason.
 
All mankind was created by God. (2)
 
It is about time that we recognize who He is and who we are.
 
Peace!

There are nineteen stories summarized on this page (1).  The one that leaped out at me, and made me decide to send this to you now, was this one:
 
Prominent Jesuit Criminally Charged with Abusing Boy Abroad
November 1, 2007

Rev. Donald J. McGuire, S.J. was charged in federal court with the crime of transporting a male minor to Switzerland and Austria and sexually abusing the boy. Since the 1980s, McGuire was the spiritual director for Mother Teresa, her Missionaries of Charity, and many other groups. He would routinely abuse the boys who served without pay as his assistants. The Jesuits were told about McGuire's abuse of boys on 11/28/69 and often thereafter but were unresponsive. See the criminal complaint in the federal case and an article about those charges. See also the earliest known complaint, a more recent one, and an NPR report on McGuire.
 
But in addition, there was this:
 

Rudy Giuliani's Shielding of Accused Priest Becomes Campaign Issue
October 23, 2007
Msgr. Alan Placa's role in the Rockville Centre diocese's abuse bureaucracy and the abuse allegations against him emerged in 2002 Newsday reporting and later in the 2/10/03 Suffolk County Grand Jury Report. Yet when Placa was suspended by Bishop Murphy on 6/13/02 after Richard Tollner's allegation, Placa went to work for Giuliani Partners, and when Giuliani entered the presidential race, his protection of Placa became an issue. See Newsday 1 2 3 4 5, the Grand Jury report 6 7 (esp. p. 120), the NY Times 8, Newsday 9, Salon 10, Worcester Telegram & Gazette 11, and ABC 12.

and this:

Cardinal George Enables Abuse but Is Named USCCB President
November 13, 2007
Cardinal Francis E. George OMI, archbishop of Chicago, was elected president of the USCCB by the bishops, although four boys say they were sexually abused by Rev. Daniel McCormack after George learned of abuse allegations in early 9/05, and after the cardinal's own review board had told him on 10/15/05 to remove McCormack. The priest was arrested on 1/20/06; he pled guilty without apology on 7/2/07 to abusing five boys and was sentenced to five years in prison. The archdiocese faced no sanctions, though it had violated the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act. See NPR's report with links to archdiocesan investigations, Cardinal George's letter, and articles on the 2005 allegation, McCormack's past and sentencing, and George's election.
 
Indeed, the Administrative structure of the Roman Catholic Church needs to be razed to the ground, and its leaders brought to justice (and hopefully, to repentance).

(1)  2007 in Review: Catholic Sexual Abuse 


From RC @ USA - Published on January 9th, 2008

For whatever reason I recently watched the movie "Deep Impact".
 
As you probably know it is about a comet hitting the earth.  The comet is so large that it will extinguish life on the planet.
 
In contrast to "Armageddon", in which the same thing is about to happen, but we are saved by Bruce Willis and a colorful group of characters, in "Deep Impact" the comet actually does hit, though through the intervention of a few brave men and one woman, only a smaller part of the comet hits, and we can rebuild (1). As always they have it all wrong.
 
The name of Jesus Christ was invoked once in the movie, not in praise or in supplication, but in amazement at the size of the comet.
 
No one donned sackcloth and covered themselves with ashes. No one prayed before The Blessed Sacrament.
 
While the President of the United States asked God for help, there was no evidence that he or anyone else did any penance.
 
As you have pointed out, in Rosa Mystica (2) , one of the reasons that prayers are not answered is because there is little or no penance associated with them.
 
God has clearly stated, He wishes Mercy, not sacrifice. Until we love God and love one another, there will be no let up in the pain. (3)
 
Hollywood mirrors our people, but it could inspire us to greater things (4) .
 
Peace!

RC

Peace be to You Miguel.

First, thank you for your response to my last email regarding the end of time. [Private Forum December 31st, 2007]

Here is some information I received yesterday. The hologram technology that you have referred to in reference to the manifestation of the False Christ is now "out in the open." (1)

TF

NOTE

NEWS BRIEF:

"Prince Charles will appear at conference as a hologram", Daily Mail, 15 December 2007

"... now Prince Charles is set to confound his critics by addressing an energy conference - as a hologram. Determined to keep his environmental damage to a minimum, Charles will save the 15 tons of carbon that would havebeen generated by flying himself and his staff 7,000 miles to the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi. Instead, a three-dimensional image of the Prince will be seen giving a five-minute talk."
.....

"A video projector will beam an image of the Prince on to the floor. It is then reflected up on to a paper-thin sheet of foil to create an optical illusion that makes him appear as a 3-D image on stage."

Thank you for publicly responding to my concerns about the "pod cast preacher" - Fr. Roderick Vonhögen - and the preaching through pod cast transmission. (1) 

Although I never did listen to it, I had a feeling that I was being warned away from it.

You are in my prayers.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments

First: We have never heard of this gentleman but this is what we found about him:

The priest who produced this is Fr. Roderick Vonhögen, from the Archdiocese of Utrecht, The Netherlands. He is the founder of Star Quest Production Network (SQPN) and was given the green light from his bishop to spread the gospel through new media. He was also instrumental in getting the Vatican’s podcast up and running.

The show’s podcasts, which range from serious to semi-entertainment, can be found at sqpn.com and are primarily aimed at a younger crowd. They include “The Daily Breakfast”, “Rosary Army”, “The Saint Cast” and many others. The exercise video is his first foray into video.

Second:  miguel lived in Fatima when the Sanctuary administration came up with the "New and Improved" idea of staging the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament (on Holy Thursday) on the Basilica Steps while they had priests talking - not leading prayer, but talking - on loudspeakers the entire time. Results - proper Adoration and two way communication with God were truncated by the babbling of the priests.

Third: The key to prayer and spiritual growth is found at 3 Kings 19:
11 And he said to him (Elias): Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord: and behold the Lord passeth, and a great and strong wind before the Lord over throwing the mountains, and breaking the rocks in pieces: the Lord is not in the wind, and after the wind an earthquake: the Lord is not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake a fire: the Lord is not in the fire, and after the fire a whistling of a gentle air. 13 And when Elias heard it, he covered his face with his mantle, and coming forth stood in the entering in of the cave, and behold a voice unto him, saying: What dost thou here, Elias?
We cannot hear God above the din and babble of humanity any more than we can hear the whistling of a gentle air in the midst of fires and earthquakes.

Fourth: That is the most effective manner to brainwash - with audible and inaudible commands

Fifth:  There seems to be certain affinity between this priest and Opus Dei unearthed by a quick cyberspace check up.  In addition, if " He was also instrumental in getting the Vatican’s podcast up and running." you know what it is said about "Birds of a Feather" and the Vatican is now the Opus Dei Podium.

We strongly recommend staying away from this type of "Evangelization" - we do NOT need "babble casts" to draw closer to God.  We need  prayer - intimate prayer and periodic collective prayer (such as Mass, Rosary, and the Stations of the Cross).

Mass brainwash is being conducted worldwide using a multitude of channels - shut down those you are aware of and can shut down.

May the Holy Spirit of God help you navigate through "the waters of 2008".

From RC @ USA - Published on December 31st, 2007 [
Silvester I, Pope [1st Pope after the deliverance of Catholic Church to Emperor Constantine]]

Dear Miguel,
 
It is appropriate that this scuffling happened (1) during the Octave of Christmas to highlight how far we as a people are from the ideals exemplified by Christ.
 
These "keepers of the faith" are the pompous brethren who heap burdens on us, yet at least with the Roman Catholic Church high command, steadfastly refuse to routinely include in every Mass an invocation to "pray for our enemies and those who persecute us."
 
As you have pointed out repeatedly, these people do not believe in Jesus Christ.
 
If they did, they would act as He did.
 
Is is any wonder that God had to send Elijah to properly prepare the way for the Second Coming of His Son?
 
Peace

RC

Priests scuffle inside Bethlehem church

BETHLEHEM, West Bank - Robed Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests went at each other with brooms and stones inside the Church of the Nativity on Thursday as long-standing rivalries erupted in violence during holiday cleaning.

The basilica, built over the grotto in Bethlehem where Christians believe Jesus was born, is administered jointly by Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Armenian Apostolic authorities. Any perceived encroachment on one group's turf can set off vicious feuds.

Jesus Comments
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another. [John 13:35]

miguel de Portugal Comments

With the confirmed and even handed history reports of Institutional Catholicism - West (Rome) (1) and East (Orthodox) (2); with the likes (3) of "Cardinal" Mahoney from LA having to "Rob Peter to pay (for the fondling of) Paul", so to speak, and fools like those "holy" priests acting in such manner (4) - why is anyone surprised of the mockery and scorn piled upon Catholicism - West (Rome) and East (Orthodox)?

We must pray incessantly (5) so that more and more people understand the difference between the pristine Catholic Faith (6) and the truckload of gangsters who have been administering it for centuries (7) and continue, utilizing different venues, to rape and plunder using the Holiest of Names - Jesus Christ - as a cover.

We further pray that - for the protection of the innocent
(8), whose Faith may be harmed by these seemingly eternal shenanigans - God, in His infinite Mercy, without further delay rid the world of those who have abused (7) His Holy Name and profited from, instead of obeying, the loving calls from our Heavenly Mother (9) to "...come back to Her Son" meaning "...come back to the Gospel", a Gospel which was jettisoned as soon as the tinkling sound of Constantine's coins (10) was heard that the Council of Nicaea.

Let us continue to pray and partake of all Sacraments (11) when they are dispensed by a worthy Minister of God.

P.S. If you believe that we continue to live an alternate reality, take a look at a very special gift promotion the very "holy" New Oxford Review.

       We read in Matthew 18:6
But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.
      and in Matthew 18:3
Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Therefore "little ones" are not necessarily all children but the innocent - whether they are 4 years old or 94 years old!
