Ponder: October 2008
Have you ever wondered... why, even
when reality cannot be hidden any more than we can hide the Sun, so
many people remain on Denial?
Because acceptance of reality demands action to correct what is
obviously wrong. It is a human trait that God will utilize to prevent
those who do not belong in His Kingdom from being saved. To wit:
10 And his disciples came
and said to him: Why speakest thou to them in parables?
11 Who answered and said to them: Because to
you it is given to
know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven: but to them it is not
12 For he that hath, to him shall be given,
and he shall
abound: but he that hath not, from him shall be taken away that also
which he hath.
13 Therefore do I speak to them in parables:
because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they
14 And the prophecy of Isaias is fulfilled
in them, who saith:
By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand: and seeing you
shall see, and shall not perceive.
15 For the heart of this people is grown
gross, and with their
ears they have been dull of hearing, and their eyes they have shut:
lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their
ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should
Yes, the Mercy of God is indeed unfathomable but conditions do apply.
(1) Denial - What is it?
(2) Denial - Its
example of this
Have you ever wondered... why no more
Jews of Jesus time did not follow Christianity considering the impact
Jesus had in the local population - if nothing else - through the
massive physical and spiritual healing, resurrections and "various and
Wonder no more!
It was because of the emotional blackmail of the Temple Masters; i.e.
the Jews would be condemned if they followed "that heretic".
Do you now understand the gravity of the Vatican's original Dominus
through which the world was essentially informed that there was no
salvation outside the Church?
From the time of His Crucifixion to the destruction of the Temple, as
Divine Retribution for their stubbornness and refusal to the entreats
of God, about 40 years elapsed. We assure you - the modern time Temple
Masters and the new Temple - The Vatican - will not have to wait that

Prevail but.... some conditions do apply.
Have you ever wondered... why when...
"The servants asked
him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them (the weeds that had been
planted amongst the wheat) up?' 29" 'He answered, 'no, because while
you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. 30 Let
both grow together until the harvest." [Matthew 13: 28-29]
Wonder no more....
(a) To uproot the bad seed would indeed result in harming too much of
the good seed that should not be harmed. Remember the Flood?
(b) The bad seed amongst the good seed gives the good seed
the opportunity to chose good over evil as an act of its free will and not by default.
What merit would we gain if we were not subject to temptation in the
course of day to day living?
It may be a good idea to prayerfully review again Don't Despair - Never Give Up (1) and Take Up You Cross and Follow Me! (2)
(1) Don't Despair -
(2) Take Up You Cross
Have you ever wondered... why society is frequently deferring to Muslim
(1) and Jewish (2) sensitivities and mostly
ignore Christian sensitivities?
Take a long, hard and unbiased look at the behavior of Christians in
relation to their professed faith, on a worldwide scale and across all
of its manifestations, and compare it with that of Muslims and Jews.
What do you see?
That is the reason! For those who cannot see it - we could not
possibly show it to you until your eyes are wide open, and then, you
would not need us to show it to you.
(2) Legal consequences for
those who may question the holocaust, for example.
Have you ever wondered... why if the Evangelization effort was not a

If the fault is not due to the Evangelizers - as Cardinal Rouco-Varela
claims (3) - but
because people just do not respond to the Evangelization - in spite of
Don John Bosco (4) proving Rouco-Varela wrong even before
he was born - why did Jesus bother to set up an organization to
Evangelize us instead of having Mary and the Archangels doing the
job instead? After all She proved quite effective in Mexico - as
Our Lady of Guadalupe - in converting millions of those who, according
to Rouco-Varela (3), did not care to respond.

wrong and proved Jesus right!
Have you ever wondered.... if the "party line" from Rome insists that
there is no
salvation outside the Church (1),
how come the criminal who was crucified next to Jesus was assured that "... this day thou shalt be with me in
paradise. " [Luke
Let's face it, the criminal was not inscribed in the local Parish, had
been Baptized nor had gone through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
The answer to this man-made riddle lies in that same Chapter of the
Gospel of Luke [23:39-42].
Jesus assured this poor sinner of such glorious future, man accused of
crimes had said:
dost thou fear God, seeing thou art condemned under the same
condemnation? And we
indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man
hath done no evil. And he
said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom.
The criminal acknowledged: (a) the Divinity of Jesus; and (b) his sinfulness and
deserving of punishment. Then he pleaded for Mercy (2).
How could our loving God possibly resist this? Didn't He even heal
the servant of a pagan Roman Centurion who appealed to Him?
Brethren, the Sacraments (3), well received, make our lives in Time and passage
to Eternity easier, but anyone
who think that organized religion is an absolute requirement for
Salvation needs to be
Evangelized.... starting with most of the religious leaders.
Using political lingo: "Read His Lips!"
- True Faith (in God and in His promises, not in man's double talk);
Sincere acknowledgment of sins; Appeal to the Unfathomable Mercy of
God; and then Confident abandonment to the Will of God.
Yes - it IS that simple!

Have you ever wondered.... about the implications of the following
statement by Jesus:
Amen I say to you, there hath not risen
them that are born of women a greater than John the Baptist: yet he
that is the lesser in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. [Matthew 11:11]
which was confirmed thus....
say to you: Amongst those that are born of women, there is not a
greater prophet that John the Baptist. But he that is the lesser in the
kingdom of God, is greater than he. [Luke 7:28]
For one He is placing John the Baptist above
Abraham and Moses - the foundations of Judaism. Think about it.
We will address the second part, ".... he
that is the lesser in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.",
at another time to prevent our readers from getting theo-indigestion.
Have you ever wondered..... why you hear us frequently warn about sects
in the Catholic Church (1)
like Opus Dei and others and seldom about Islamic terrorism?
Because as we have amply explained, terrorism is not the real problem -
the real problem is religious fanaticism. (2)
It was not
miguel de Portugal who said: And
fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell.
is not the real problem - the real problem
is religious fanaticism.
Have you ever wondered..... if there is a connection between:
And rend your hearts, and not your
garments, and turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and
merciful, patient and
rich in mercy, and ready to repent of the evil. [Joel 2:13]
He spoke also this parable: A certain man had
a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it,
and found none. And he said to the dresser of the
vineyard: Behold, for these
three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut
it done therefore: why cumbereth it the ground? But he answering, said to him: Lord, let it alone this year also,
until I dig about it, and dung it.
And if happily it bear fruit: but if not, then after that thou
shalt cut it down.
And seeing a certain fig tree by the way
he came to it, and found
nothing on it but leaves only, and he saith to
it: May no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And
the fig tree withered away. [Matthew
one connection is that even
Divine Patience has a limit. Now, let us review the following....
In the first message of Garabandal (1)
on October 18th, 1961 Mary said
must make many sacrifices, perform much penance and visit the Blessed
Sacrament frequently. But first, we must lead good lives. If we do not,
a chastisement will befall us. The cup is already filling up
and if we
do not change, a very great chastisement will come upon us.
In the second and last message of Garabandal (1)
18th, 1965 Mary said :
message of October 18 has not be complied with and has not been made
known to the world, I am advising you that this is the last one.
Before, the cup was filling up. Now it is flowing over....
Anyone who still thinks : Oh, God is Merciful - He will not punish
needs to be reminded that because the messages of Mary
through Fatima, at the beginning of the 20th century, was ignored
communist, spread its errors throughout the world and World War II
yielded 50 to 100 million deaths.
Should we feel sorrow for those who refuse to heed the last warnings?
No, we do not. We only feel sorrow for those who have been kept in the
dark by those whom they trust more than they trust God.

the Messages of Garabandal

mistake - it was ignored!
2008 [Feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael]
Have you ever noticed..... the parallel that exists between the Most
Holy Trinity and the main Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael (1)?
Michael is the leader as appointed by God; Gabriel is the communicator,
always delivering the key messages from Heaven; and Raphael seems to be
the healer and consoler.
We could almost say that: Michael is reflection of God the
Father; Gabriel is a reflection of God the Son - the Word of God; and
Raphael is a reflection of God the Holy Ghost - the healer and consoler.
Amazing coherence that in the Divine realm is a given fact.
Michael: Daniel 10:13, Daniel 10:21,
Daniel 12:1, Jude 1:9, Apocalypse 12:7
Gabriel: Daniel 8:16, Daniel 9:21,

them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do

hearts and be converted so that I should heal them." [Matthew 13:11, 13, 15]
