BOOTHVILLE, La. - There is still a hole
in the Earth, crude oil is
still spewing from it and there is still, excruciatingly, no end in
sight. After trying and trying again, one of the world's largest
corporations, backed and pushed by the world's most powerful
government, can't stop the runaway gusher.

From (Mr.) IW @ Somewhere in the World
This Divine Encouragement posting (1)
appropriate to my current circumstance that it seems directed
specifically to me.
For the past several weeks I have been "free-falling", so to speak.
Having gone through financial devastation in the past, I have been
feeling resentful of facing a similar situation now. This was
exacerbated by a less-than-stellar review of my job performance by my
subordinates, to the point that those closest to me have been surprised
at what they know as uncharacteristic behavior on my part (I had
expressed my rage at the review to two of my loved ones, and was
basically using all my willpower not to show it or take it against my
I had likened my state to that of a top that had lost its center of
gravity and was spinning out of control.
I have come to realize, through attempting to explain how I felt to a
loved one, that I was throwing a tantrum at God, in the manner of a
spoiled child who is certain of his parents' love for him, but refuses
to take his medicine because it is bitter.
I cannot realistically say that everything will be smooth sailing for
me now acceptance-wise, but I pray to leave these dark emotions behind
and learn to conquer myself.
In this rambling sort of way, I want to thank you for the posting. I
really needed it.
You all remain in my prayers.
A. Rejoice! Where you
see failure and misery, God sees progress.
If an untrained (lacking a better word) eye would review your letters
from some time back until to now, it would appear that you continue
to "free fall" as you put it, but that is just an appearance, an
illusion. As we make progress in our journey
Home, we get closer to God. The closer we get to God, the more Light
there is. The more Light there is, the better we see ourselves,
and.... the better we see ourselves the more misery we see.
What we cannot notice is that we are less miserable today than we
were six months ago.
For example - If by a miracle you could:
(a) See yourself six months
ago with the level of Light shining upon you today, you would faint in
and if you could
(b) See yourself today with the Light had shining upon you
six months ago, you would think of yourself "a saint" since you
have purified yourself greatly in the last six months, and, with
the dimmer Light of six month ago, you would see no blemish.
Therefore, if ever you see yourself as "having made it", you are in
trouble because you are slipping back into dimmer areas - away from
God. Conversely, if every day you see more misery that needs to
be eliminated, rejoice - get to work on it - because you are closer to Home.
We must add, however, that some bad/negative habits/tendencies
take some time to get rid of. As long as one keeps on trying in earnest
those bad/negative habits/tendencies will
However, know that as one approaches the freedom from said bad/negative
habits/tendencies, satan will "put on one major last fight" before he
loses the grip he has on that particular soul. This is why, in
some cases, one will see a great flare up in the bad/negative
habits/tendencies before they are totally conquered.
(1) The Posting
Our Lord Jesus Christ
continues to comfort and encourages us thus...
Joy follows self-conquest! You cannot conquer and control others until
you have completely conquered yourself.
Can you see yourself absolutely unmoved?
Think of Me before the mocking soldiers, being
struck, spat upon, and answering never a word - never a word. Try to
see that as Divine Power. Remember by that Power of perfect silence,
perfect self-control, you can alone prove your right to govern.
Never judge. The heart of man is so delicate, so
complex, only its Maker can know it. Each heart is so different,
actuated by different motives, controlled by different circumstances,
influenced by different sufferings.
How can one judge of another? Leave to Me the
unraveling of the puzzles of life. Leave to Me the teaching of
Bring each heart to Me, its Maker, and leave it with
Me. Sure in the certainty that all that is wrong I can set right.

Holy Trinity will also help you understand why it

Have you ever noticed... what is the key message Jesus
when He cursed a fig tree for not having figs?
At first, such action may appear to be shocking since it seems that
Jesus is cursing a tree
which did not have figs because
it was not time yet. Are we witnessing a Divine tantrum? After
all, we read:
13 And when he had seen afar off a fig
tree having leaves, he came if perhaps he might find any thing on it.
And when he was come to it, he found nothing but leaves. For it was not
the time for figs. 14 And answering he said to it: May no man hereafter
eat fruit of thee any more for ever. [Mark 11]
Hardly so. The reason becomes apparent after they return
from Jerusalem. To wit.
And when they passed by in the morning they saw the fig tree dried up
from the roots.
21 And Peter
remembering, said to him: Rabbi, behold the fig tree, which thou didst
curse, is withered away. 22 And
Jesus answering, saith to them: Have the faith of God. 23 Amen I say to
you, that whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou removed and be
cast into the sea, and shall not stagger in his heart, but believe,
that whatsoever he saith shall be done; it shall be done unto him. 24
Therefore I say unto you, all things, whatsoever you ask when ye pray,
believe that you shall receive; and they shall come unto you. [Mark 11]
Jesus was teaching them a lesson about
faith and not about placing a curse on anything. A hard to forget
show-and-tell example with the fig tree being the only victim.
Regarding self flagellation.....
and other acts of
self-inflicted physical abuse, such as the cilice, done in the name of
piety. Jesus was quite clear about it: that is not the way God Wills that we
Why are we absolutely certain of this - regardless of the many well
known faces amongst the saints (and would-be saints) who have practiced
this? Well - we "just know it" - but since I am not a "known face" we
will point to the best known face yet....
At Gethsemani ...he began to grow sorrowful and to be
sad. 38 Then he saith to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death:
stay you here, and watch with me. 39 And going a little further, he
fell upon his face, praying, and saying: My Father, if it be possible,
let this chalice pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou
wilt. [Matthew 26]
on May 27th,
Jesus prayed thus three times. What was
at stake was the Salvation of
mankind, yet he would rather not subject Himself to physical pain unless
it was the Will of
Using American vernacular we say: If that attitude was good enough for
Jesus, it should certainly be good for any of His followers – unless,
of course, someone, consciously or not, is trying to upstage Jesus.
Think about it.
However, day in and day out, little sacrifices are in line with God’s
will – such as denying ourselves little pleasures, inconveniencing
ourselves for the benefit of other(s), reasonable fasting (no hunger
strikes, please), long prayerful walks during Pilgrimages, eating
nourishing food which we find distasteful or not on our list of
To make sure that we get our point across, we will use yet another well
"known face".... the Virgin Mary's.
As part of the communications associated with Our Lady of the
Rosary of Fátima, the faithful were informed not to seek
to offer to God, but to offer/accept any
and all difficulties that we encounter in our daily lives for: Love
of Jesus, in reparation for the offenses committed against the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners. (1)
Do not be impressed by those who sleep on boards instead of a
mattress. After a few fitful nights on boards, the body will get used
to it and you will sleep as well as you always did. Proof: Have you
ever gone to a hotel where the mattress was much better than the one
you have at home, and you could not sleep?
The only Ones we should look upon as roles models are: Jesus and Mary.
Even if their perfection is unattainable for a mere human, such
perfection should be our only "standard".

Did you know why.... Abraham was so persistent with God
when he was on His way to Sodom to possibly destroy it since their sin
had become exceedingly grievous? To wit:
as yet stood before the Lord.
23 And drawing nigh he said: Wilt thou
destroy the just with the wicked?
24 If there be fifty just men in the city,
shall they perish withal? and wilt thou not spare that place for the
sake of the fifty just, if they be therein?
.... 30 Lord, saith he,
be not angry, I beseech thee, if I speak: What if thirty shall be found
there? He answered: I will not do it, if I find thirty there.
31 Seeing, saith he, I
have once begun, I will speak to my Lord. What if twenty be found
there? He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty. 32 I
beseech thee, saith he, be not angry, Lord, if I speak yet once more:
What if ten should be found there? And he said: I will not destroy it
for the sake of ten. [Genesis
Obviously, it was not as the result of
Abraham's desire to save the wicked; it seems that he wanted to make
sure that God did not
destroy Lot, Abraham's nephew, and his family who resided in Sodom.
As it is always with God, He found a way to destroy Sodom and Gomorrha
and uphold His promise to Abraham.....
when it was morning, the angels pressed him (Lot), saying: Arise, take thy wife, and the
two daughters which thou hast: lest thou also perish in the wickedness
of the city.

Do you know that.... the
"smoking gun" held by the West, which points to North Korea's
authorship of the torpedoing of a South Korea naval vessel, is composed
of the "Made in North Korea" torpedo remnants?
We certainly do not doubt
(although we have more than enough reason to, based on the track record
of the authorities) the findings of the commission which established
that a torpedo was the reason for the explosion.
Likewise, we do not doubt the commission's finding that the
torpedo was "Made in North Korea".
The problem with the logic used to push the Korean
peninsula to the nuclear brink is that the real "smoking gun" would be
the North Korean submarine. What if someone else - like those who need
to push the world over the brink to finally, and forcibly, establish
their New World Order - fired a torpedo (somehow obtained through
generous bribery of a NK official or their suppliers) from a non North

One Official Opinion
"If it is used toward the
good, to treat pathologies, we can only be positive" in our assessment,
Monsignor Rino Fisichella, the Vatican's top bioethics official, told
state-run TV. "If it turns out not to be ... useful to respect the
dignity of the person, then our judgment would change."
Another Official Opinion
A top Italian cardinal,
Angelo Bagnasco, said the invention is "further sign of intelligence,
God's gift to understand creation and be able to better govern it,"
according to Apcom and ANSA news agencies.
"On the other hand, intelligence can never be without
responsibility," said Bagnasco, the head of the Italian bishops'
conference. "Any form of intelligence and any scientific acquisition
... must always be measured against the ethical dimension, which has at
its heart the true dignity of every person."
Yet another Official Opinion

and parroting his power of creation is an enormous risk that can plunge
men into a barbarity," Mogavero told newspaper La Stampa in an

In previous notes, I mentioned that I served mass with the
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1)
While I am not the only one who can say
this, my memory of the experience was rather interesting.
Many have characterized Sheen as a 'frustrated actor'. I would
contend from my personal experience that he was anything but
'frustrated', much less lacked real acting experience. In fact, I
assert that he was a master of the craft.
The key to
understanding this lies in understanding Method Acting (2)
where one does not merely read lines and feign emotions; you become
In his many videos, Sheen is perceived as a jovial, brilliantly
glib, virtual polymath. A skillful presenter of complex philosophic,
theological and metaphysical constructs such that the common man could
understand. Within this "play"
this actor inserted plenty of
masterful rhetorical justification for the 'Red Scare'
as being coherent with the essence of Judeo-Christian ethics and
morality. With some skillfully placed Marian allusions to make the
complete package (his 'character')
appear solidly Catholic.
Why would the executives of the then fledgling TV networks give
this man a prime time TV slot (and an Emmy award) for many years? A

It was more than just ignoring me: he appeared suspicious of me. I
realized this, then was completely confused. Now over 40 years

was the overwhelming feeling I received from the man - emotionally and
spiritually. As if he was of (and/or was enveloped in) "Darkness". It
was a palpable presence. This feeling continued through the mass - even
though the altar was brightly lit. I would have felt more comfortable
standing next to Dracula.
Bear in mind that I had seen him on TV prior to meeting him, and had
the common most positive perception of his 'character'. I had no negative preconceived

They are willing to sacrifice the memory of John Paul II if that is what it takes

the NCR article linked here. In said article there was no hedging about
it - John Paul II is being positioned as the escapegoat.]
We can summarize what we meant in an easier to comprehend statement: They are willing to sacrifice the good
name of John Paul II....
The key is "the good name
or the very "positive memory

extent possible... up to now.

The enslavement of
Paul II by the forces
of evil prowling through The Vatican became the only viable avenue
left to them to achieve this end, since the enemies of God could not
eliminate him as
had originally planned to do in 1994-1995.
To be more specific - John Paul II's papacy ended around 1994-1995. He
was the last successor of Peter, in the full sense of that title.
Our files abound with communications from us dated as far back as 1997,
decrying the Vatican's behavior regarding sexual abuse within the RC
Church. As a matter of fact, we have found no less than four letters
that we sent to Cardinal Ratzinger requesting sweeping action on this
matter. These letters were accompanied by appropriate supporting
documentation. All of this took place just before the sexual abuse
scandal broke out in full force in the US.
In an effort to give the Vatican "an incentive", we acquired 20-plus
copies of "The Great Unfrocked - Two Thousand Years of Church Scandal"
by Matthew Parris. We made this book available, free of charge, to
those who needed to know that the sexual abuse cancer was not just
another "evil" that might be (incorrectly) blamed on the Second Vatican

My wife and I are Catholic. We also listen to Jack Van Impe and
all in all, are trying our best to have eyes that see, and ears that
listen. We want to prepare our family for what we see coming, our
Lord's return. We want to be faithful to the word AND the church.
We are confused by how the Catholic church interprets the
"rapture". Jack Van Impe would imply that believers would be
raptured before the tribulation, and we are told this is not Catholic
teaching, and that Christians will suffer the tribulation and be

Can you or someone advise. I apologize for bothering you with
this, and do appreciate greatly your spiritual guidance.
PLEASE help us interpret the claims by Catholic Planet regarding the
teachings of Miguel de Portugal and the M+G+R Foundation. We seek
only the truth, and wish you only the best.
A. We are the ones who sincerely thank you for this
opportunity. Your letter illustrates what constitutes our "agony in the
garden." We see fine sincere individuals seeking the truth while “the serpent” pours forth “water as it were a river; that he might
cause her to be carried away by the river." [Rev 12:15].
(This water is of the same spiritual nature that John, Jesus and Paul
encountered in Time during their ministries here on Earth.)
First, let us remind you that the Church IS NOT the Administration. The
Church, as the New Testament clearly and repeatedly indicates, is
composed of the "living stones" - the souls who are trying to live The
Word - Jesus Christ. The Administrators are part of the Church as you
and we are - and that is it. The reason the Church has not collapsed
yet (0) is
because of the many fine "living stones" amongst the laity. (A far, far
greater proportion of the laity are “living stones” than are the clergy
– including the Hierarchy.)
God even had the kindness to send a holy man - Don John Bosco (1) - who for forty years,
under the full view of three Popes, clergy and hierarchy - showed that
if they practiced what Jesus taught the Faith would flourish even in a
rabid anticlerical Italy. Bosco’s example had little effect; the
Administration continued their "business as usual". Don Bosco even had
to "bribe" two key members of the Curia to have them approve the
Salesians (which had the green light from Rattazzi, the most
anti-clerical minister in Italy).
Summarizing, in general terms: we hold the Roman Catholic Church
Administration to be the present-day equivalent of the Administration
of the Temple of Jerusalem in the time of John the Baptizer and of
Are we "a Catholic organization?"
Were John the Baptizer – and Jesus Christ and His Apostles and
followers – "a Jewish organization?"
You can provide the answer to your own question.
Regarding the Rapture - unfortunately, living the
Protestant version of
the Rapture will be a horrendously painful error for many. In a way, it
is similar to the belief in reincarnation (2)
. Those who believe in
reincarnation harbor the security that "they will always have another
chance (life) to get things right" - which they will not. The next to
the final cut of The
Elect (3) -
those who will greet Jesus on His return - will have lived Purgatory on
Earth, i.e. The Tribulation - thus have been purified enough to
face/greet Him. There no escaping from that, although it may be
cushioned by assiduous prayer and sacrifices.
Regarding the Catholic Planet's "rating" of The M+G+R Foundation and
miguel de Portugal... It is indeed amusing. Who empowered Catholic
Planet (or the Roman Curia, for that matter) to evaluate what is
obviously beyond their grasp?
Having been the target of several murder attempts, we can assure you
that we are not very popular in certain circles.

65 "In many and various ways God spoke of old to our

other word than this one.
There will be no further Revelation
66 "The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new
and definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public
revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our
Lord Jesus Christ." Yet even if Revelation is already complete, it has
not been made completely explicit; it remains for Christian faith
gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the
They seem to have forgotten
to "air brush out" the following statements by Jesus:
12 I have yet many things to say to
you: but you cannot bear them now. 13 But when he, the Spirit of
truth, is come, he will teach you all truth. For he shall not speak of
himself; but what things whatsoever he shall hear, he shall speak; and
the things that are to come, he shall shew you. [John 16]
26 But the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost, whom
the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and
bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you.
Of course, no new revelation, nor any development of an
already revealed truth, can in
any way, directly or indirectly, contravene what was revealed by
Jesus when He walked among men. This is what Ratzinger should have said
in the Catechism.

Do you ever wonder who....
really is the controlling
force within the RC Church Administration?
Review the following very few key examples and then you decide.
Consider that, for example.....
(a) As soon as there is an
obvious supernatural manifestation the first "official thought" is that
it is of demonic origin. [As if God did not have total control over
satan can and cannot do.]
(b) The Canonization process of St. Martin de Porres - "a
living reflection of religious life, a model of piety, a perfect ideal
of regular observance", a walking miracle immersed in true humility -
followed this time table: Death
of his physical body: 1639; Beatified: 1837; Canonized: 1962
(c) The Canonization process of Padre Pio - another proven
example of a chosen one by God - followed this time table: Death
of his physical body: 1968;
Beatified: 1999; Canonized: 2002
(d) The Canonization process
of Joan of Arc - Burned at the stake
as a servant of satan: 1431; Beatified: 1909; Canonized: 1920
Canonization process of Josemaria Escrivá (1) -
a man who had the
audacity to pose to his followers as "The Father" and to publish his
booklet with the title "The Way" - outright subliminal challenge the
only "Way" - Jesus
Death of his physical body: 1975;
Beatified: 1992; Canonized: 2002
(f) The responsibility for the
catastrophe to befall humanity since the Noah's Flood cataclysm - World
II - rests upon the RC Church Administration. Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini
Stalin would have been powerless
if the very simple and straight
forward instructions given by Heaven would have been followed. (2)
(Mr.) IW @ US
At what point will it be advisable (or
essential for spiritual survival) to stay away from Roman Catholic
church services, even in parishes where (so far) the Masses are valid
My hunch is that the no-go line would be when the Vatican machinery
announces the False Christ, and gives allegiance to him/it. Likewise,
it would be necessary to stay away from the services of any
denomination that aligns itself with the False Christ.
But maybe the red line comes sooner than that ...
A. Thank you for posing such a valid question and giving
us the opportunity to demonstrate, once more, that if God has not
revealed information to m de P he will not even opine on the matter.
Of course, once the False Christ is officially presented - virtually or
in reality - that would be a clear no-go line. Besides that, as of now,
all that has been revealed to us regarding this matter is to not join
in the prayers offered for Benedict XVI nor Josemaría
Escrivá during Mass or any other religious service/function.
If and when God reveals further guidelines regarding this matter, we
will announce them via whatever means we are using at the time.

who have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus came in and
went out among us, 22 Beginning from the baptism of John, until the day

with us of his resurrection.... 24 And praying, they said: Thou, Lord,

Benedict's grand entrance in Lisbon and
Mass brought memories of Cleopatra's entrance in Rome as portrayed by
Elizabeth Taylor in the sixties movies. Without a doubt it must have
caused much sorrow to St. John Bosco since his famous dream (1)
seems to have been the
The following is not based on 'research', but rather on what I was led
to 'understand' in watching Ratzinger's papal mass in Lisbon today.
First - I should note that I had no preconceived notions when I watched
the EWTN live broadcast of the papal mass from Lisbon. However, I did
what I have been doing for a while now when watching any such papal
the protection of the Holy Spirit against deception, and
(if it be God's Will) that if there is anything that He wishes me to
learn or understand from this, His Will be done.
There was very heavy
subliminal programming going on in this
The term - staged show
great prescience, as Msgr. Guido Marini, the Papal Master
of Ceremonies has advanced degrees in the psychology of
. Prior to this 'show' this was evidence in
things as the Papal Throne growing ever more ornate and increasingly
elevated, and the 'Cleopatra' type water entrances in Sydney and
As of this writing, better photos (than these (2)
) and video clips of the
mass are not
yet available. But here we have:
1) the scenic backdrop of a 'safe
harbor'; with boats anchored..... 'to
the holy father'.
2) In wider shots, there appeared to be twin columns on either side of
the papal mass stage
3) The cross which grows out of the papal throne (nothing subtle, eh?)
has the Holy Spirit descending literally upon Benedict's head.
4) You may be able to discern the transparent screen at the rear of the
'stage', through which you view the 'harbor'. During certain part of
the mass, EWTN seems to have used it for a 'composite shot (several
times) in which the complete scene (boats anchored, harbor, twin
columns, cross, pope, were melded together in a trick shot using this
as a sort of 'greenscreen'.
As if all that were not enough, I 'detected' what you might call
subliminal backmasking. It would take me a while to unscramble all the
messages conveyed (3)
but this was the essence:
"........I am with you always....... today I walk with you.....
is not two thousand years distant from us, but is really present
among us: he gives us the Truth and he gives us the light which is our
life and helps us find the path towards the future....... pre-eminently
present in the sacrament of his Body and Blood I am with you....... a
stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and he who believes in him
will not be put to shame”....... Draw near to the Lord, “that living
stone, rejected by men but in God's sight chosen and
precious”......... those who believe in Jesus will not be put to shame:
he is the Word of God,....... no adverse power will ever be able to
destroy the Church.......... A vast effort at every level is required
every Christian is to be
transformed into a witness capable of rendering account to all and at
all times of the hope that inspires him ........ only I can fully
satisfy the profound longings of every human heart and give
answers to its most pressing questions concerning suffering, injustice
and evil, concerning death and the life hereafter........ it is
necessary to proclaim anew with vigour and joy the reinvention of the
death and resurrection of Christ, the heart of Christianity......"
The words he used- his phrases - jumped out as double/triple and/or
inverse meaning. I understood that he was referring to himself,
regardless of the pious verbiage used. In some cases, I 'heard' two
things at once. Demoniacally clever. Nobody would suspect a
cannot explain this further, except to summarize the subliminal:
"Worship me.... obey me...... the church is your only hope...
I have no idea how others perceived this, if indeed many did. It is
likely that 'nothing funny'; will turn upon in any video of this mass.
One wonders what else Marini studied......
God bless you!
Thank you for sharing the above with our readers.
Although we have access to all Portuguese TV channels - courtesy of a
cooperator - we have just had a glimpse or two of the events. The
sorrow was almost overwhelming. The best way we can describe it is as
follows: Imagine being a German citizen watching those pep rallies for
which Hitler was so well known and knowing, without a shred of a doubt,
how it was all going to end.
The only consolations for m de P were: (a) Knowing that he was doing
God Willed him to do to alert those of the Elect with eyes and ears
still closed; and (b) Being able to offer his suffering in reparation
for the suffering of Jesus and Mary, which had to be infinitely greater

Do you know.....
that the Chemtrail issue is real, and more people should be aware that
is not "one of those" internet legends? (1)
Over the past
decade, independent testing of Chemtrails around the country has shown
a dangerous, extremely poisonous brew that includes: barium, nano
aluminum-coated fiberglass [known as CHAFF], radioactive thorium,
cadmium, chromium, nickel, desiccated blood, mold spores, yellow fungal
mycotoxins, ethylene dibromide, and polymer fibers. Barium can be
compared to the toxicity of arsenic. Barium is known to adversely
affect the heart. Aluminum has a history of damaging brain function.
Independent researchers and labs continue to show off-the-scale levels
of these poisons. A few “anonymous” officials have acknowledged this
on-going aerosol spraying.
Numerous tests have been done to verify that
these poisons are off the scale in their toxicity. They are documented
in our water, in our soil, and in our air. For more than 10 years,
researcher Clifford Carnicom has been valiantly and systematically
reporting on the various detrimental aspects of these aerosols –and
what they are doing to our entire environment, as well as our blood.
Various “sky watch” groups also have been carefully documenting and
diligently reporting about these daily assaults.
Foundation comments: The
truth of the matter is that no one can really do anything about it
besides praying for their own protection and that of the innocent.

miguel de Portugal @ EU and US
on May 12th,
As a follow-up to
the response to Ms. RM (see immediately
below) we wish to address now the veneration of images - such as the
the Divine Mercy.
The key word here is veneration
- which IS NOT adoration
When we venerate an image we are focusing our total attention on the
particular image and what it represents. When we focus our attention on
psycho-spiritual connection is established by which "information", for
lack of a better word, "flows" (again, for the lack of a better word).
As we venerate, say, the image of the Divine Mercy, our brain is
processing the message it "transmits": the unfathomable Mercy of God
and the reality that the greatest sin a man can commit is but a grain
of sand when compared with the oceans of His Mercy. All of a sudden,
past grievous sins (forgotten or not) break the psychological barrier
of denial and surface.... then comes a feeling of "He may forgive me, after all
which eventually turns into a rush of "I am sorry, have Mercy on me for I have
".... and the purpose of the veneration - in an
extreme case - has been fulfilled.
The same, of course, applies with the veneration of a crucifix, as
miguel de Portugal experienced without even having a physical crucifix
before him. (miguel was venerating a mental image of the
crucifix at the time.) The awareness that indeed our sins crucified Him
(as you may read in m
de P's report
), generates such great sorrow that it is hard to
imagine anything that would exceed it.
(Ms.) RM @ Puerto Rico
I read your post of
May 8th about St. Benedict medal (1) and it scared me. What
you said about it makes sense and that is the reason of my scare.
I know the pain and anger of God when his people believe in the power
of things more than in His power, as is the use of a talisman/amulet.
We have practices that could be seen similar to what you said about St.
Benedict medal. For example: The miraculous medal, the veneration of
The Mercy Image, the Mount of Carmel scapular (Our Lady Of Mount
In your FYI&R page you stated that it is "in contrast, the proper
use of a simple St. Benedict medal, as one would use another religious
symbol, is a different matter and should not be offensive to God".
I went to wikipedia in search of the definition of a talisman and it
refers me to the definition of an amulet . For my surprise, this page
as amulet many of our sacramentals, including the rosary and the holy
In the present days I believe is very important to have pristine clear
the difference of this two possible practices: that one which provoke
pain to God versus that one which is not offensive.
Please, could you clarify the two practices?
Many blessings for you!
A. As always your questions are most welcome, for they
clearly from a pure soul seeking light. In addition, they give us the
opportunity to address very important issues on this page.
First of all, we must understand that to non-Catholics, all our
look like amulets. Even the Sacrament of Holy Communion has been viewed
by some as cannibalism. (Of course, they do not realize that by
equating the consumption of the Holy Communion to cannibalism, they are
Real Presence in the consecrated host.)
Secondly - we cannot equate the Miraculous Medal, the Carmelite
Scapular or the Rosary with a medal or relic of any saint - no matter
how great he/she may have been. While subject to the Most Holy Trinity,
Mary is above all and everyone else.
The Miraculous Medal was designed by Mary Herself. The prayer inscribed
on it (3) was
given by Her as well as the "Instructions for its use". Since Her Son,
God in the Flesh, paid attention to Her requests at the wedding feast
of Cana and (in spite of His initial "Woman,
what is that to me and to thee? my hour is not yet come." [John 2:4]) pleased Her by
turning water into wine, one would be very
disoriented not to be
attentive to Her requests and
make every effort to please Her in the measure that one is able to.
The Carmelite Scapular - the same as above.
The Holy Rosary (4)
- the same as above.
Amazingly enough, even those in great distress are often blinded by
satan and do not pray the Rosary (despite the level of faith they
believe to have). They ignore the Holy Rosary (the most powerful prayer
after the Sacrifice of the Mass), and instead use second-level
Sacramentals as talismans.
Is Holy Water an amulet? Only if one does not believe in the Sacrament
Baptism and its renewal as we bless ourselves with Holy Water.
However, all of the above -
and much more – can be (and often are!) used as amulets by
under-Evangelized souls. As we have extensively explained elsewhere (5)
one may visit the many churches in, say, Rome, Spain or Portugal and
sit in a corner and watch "the Faithful". The last thing that they may
pay attention to (if they notice it at all) is the Blessed Sacrament,
the very underpinning of the Catholic Faith! Meanwhile, the disoriented
Faithful rush to the statues to touch them, kiss them, embrace them
and, yes, lick them too!
Even if their Baptismal Certificate was signed by a Pope, they must
be technically considered pagans.
If one hangs a Rosary from the rear view mirror of the car - it could
be an amulet or not. It depends what the purpose is. If it is for "Good
luck", it is an amulet; if it is to have it in a handy place - as m de
P and many others do - to pray while driving, then it is a Sacramental.
If you consecrate your vehicle or house to, say, Our Lady of the
Miraculous Medal and you place Her medal in the vehicle or house, then
you are using it as a Sacramental symbol. If, on other hand, you just
place it in your home or vehicle "to keep evil away", then the Medal
has become a talisman/amulet.
If wherever you look in your residence or office you see holy pictures
- saints included - because you rejoice in keeping them in the
forefront of your mind.... that pleases God very much. If you plaster
your walls with holy images to ward off evil - then again they are
If you keep holy images hidden in your bedroom and nowhere else
in the house one may
offend God - unless
due to socio-political reasons in that particular area/region it is
prudent to keep them out of sight from the casual visitor. In the place
of work, of course, other rules apply and the
display - if any - should be toned down considerably - but not omitted.
What is "going over the top" at the office? Before the man who
became m de P left the
world and was still engaged in his professions, the President of the
company with which he had a very lucrative contract came in to his
office to politely
request that he discontinued the incense burning during his prayer
sessions at the office. This, brethren, is no joke! Of course, the
company President was right. The prayers continued without the incense
Of course - if you use any of the above mentioned Sacramentals for the
right purpose we assure you, satan and his minions will "simply not

on May 11th,
from a letter From (Mr.) IW @ Somewhere in Asia
I hope you will not be discouraged (by my progress, or perhaps lack
thereof) when I say that the constant testing tires me. I know I
shouldn't feel this way and yet I do. My "faith muscles" do not seem to
have developed symmetrically - strong at some points, weak in others. I
also know I have no one to blame for these trials but myself, yet like
any other spoiled child I do not joyfully embrace the discipline. What
an idiot I am. My own weakness exasperates me.
Item (b): I only take
solace in the fact that there are people who do rise above their
limitations, who do His will as He intends them to, and do not bow to
the pressures of the world. It may be shallow of me to say this, but
while I do not envy the role He has ordained for you, I do wish I had
your strength of faith.
on May 10th,
(a): As we have said many times, God's judgment of a soul is
on how hard that soul has sincerely
tried to sanctify itself and the degree of contrition for its falls -
the level of holiness attained. The keys are "how hard that soul has sincerely tried"
and "true contrition".
How could we possibly be discouraged if you honestly
misery and struggle day in and day out to overcome it?
(b): A well kept secret (due to the failed Evangelization) is
that the highest level of faith to be attained by each individual is different from one to
another. We must view virtues as ingredients which go in the making of
a particular dish. The amount of each virtue within a soul depends on
the amounts of the other virtues - all geared to attain the full
potential God has determined for each particular soul.
Just "bang on God's doors" persistently asking Him to grant
you the level
of faith that He has ordained for you from all Eternity at that particular moment
since, a week from now, the level of faith that you must have will be
different. We must see ourselves as "a dish in progress" as we
journey through Tim on our way Home.
It is He Who grants the faith upon our request and ability to accept it.
Thank you for the opportunity to address this on this page.

For your information
and reference and for the "on-schedule" file, and the "human
self-annihilation without Divine Intervention" file ...
This 18-minute video - Jeremy
Jackson: How we wrecked the ocean
- goes over the global
collapse of oceanic ecosystems: over-fishing, proliferation of invasive
and destructive species, pollution, toxic algae, and the spread of
oceanic dead zones. It confirms what I have intuited about the state of
the planetary ecosystem. It may all be "old news" for you, however.
There is a poignant comparison between the catch of fishermen off the
Florida Keys in the 1950s/60s, and their catch now. The fish that are
now displayed as oceanic trophy fish ... are about like the average
our family used to catch in Colorado in the 1960s.

We can safely state that the fact that the ecosystem has not completely
collapsed yet is a miracle. This is a miracle worked by God in the
hopes that His children would "snap out of it" and start to make amends
to Him and to their fellow men (and logically with the Earth's
ecosystem, which God created). Of course, none of that happened since
the Christian Evangelizers had become predators (3) instead and the
Evangelization - the only
hope for any system - failed.
We say "...the only hope for any system..."
with such conviction that I cannot think of anything else about which
we are so sure. Man is a
complete failure without God and Evangelization was designed by
God to establish a solid line of communication between His children and

of communication between His children and Himself. However, humanity's

I decided to pursue further the issue of the very popular
crucifix combined with the famous St. Benedict
medal which was posted on this page on May 8th. (1)
Until today, I had never heard of the crucifix/medal combination. The
pictures of it on the referenced page (2) are shocking ... they
make Benedict and his medal, not Christ, the focus of attention ... and
the medal is placed above Christ's head!
Pursuing this issue further I found some very strange items in the
the plain St. Benedict medal. The Catholic Encyclopedia quote
It is doubtful when the
Medal of St. Benedict originated. During a trial for witchcraft at
Natternberg near the Abbey of Metten in Bavaria in the year 1647, the
accused women testified that they had no power over Metten, which was
under the protection of the cross.
Upon investigation, a number of painted
crosses, surrounded by the letters which are now found on Benedictine
medals, were found on the walls of the abbey, but their meaning had
been forgotten. Finally, in an old manuscript, written in 1415, was
found a picture representing St. Benedict holding in one hand a staff
which ends in a cross, and a scroll in the other.
On the staff and scroll were written in full the words of
which the mysterious letters were the initials. Medals bearing the
image of St. Benedict, a cross, and these letters began now to be
struck in Germany, and soon spread over Europe. They were first
approved by Benedict XIV in his briefs of 23 December, 1741, and 12
The origin and value of the medal seems to be tied to "evidence" from a
trial in Germany. Germany was heavily involved in witch-hunts in the
1500s and 1600s, with widespread torture and executions.
Another red flag is that the monks of the abbey had forgotten the
meaning of the symbols on the crosses in their monastery. How could
they forget something that supposedly was so spiritually important.
As if that were not enough, it was Benedict XIV who first approved the
medal in 1741-1742.
Regarding the reference's data on the blessing of St. Maurus ...
St. Maurus was a disciple
of St. Benedict, and his defender against those who persecuted him.
Pope St. Gregory the Great described him as a model of religious
virtue, especially obedience.
Obedience ... brings to mind the Opus Dei and Legionnaires of
Christ favorite "virtue".
you for sharing your views with us.
As we read your quotations, the region - Bavaria - lit up the
proverbial board. Bavaria (3)
is the state of Germany made well known in recent times by Adolf Hitler
(4) and Benedict
Since Benedict XVI is the precursor of the
False Christ (6)
and since we know well what is satan's Final Act (7)
and how it relates
to the work started by Hitler, we will never be able
at a St. Benedict medal the same way again.
In any case - it is St. Michael the Archangel who is the one appointed
by God to fight satan and protect God's people from harm. It is Mary
and Her Most Holy Rosary that are the nemesis of satan. Thus we must
ask - Since when did the medal of St. Benedict, or St. Benedict
himself, surpass Michael the Archangel and the "...woman clothed with the sun, and the
moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars? [Rev. 12:1]
It must have been right before it was placed on an equal
footing with the Holy Cross....

In reference to your

easily tell the difference between a staged attack (terrorist or
warfare) and a real one?
I always wondered why there had been no US response to real Acts of War
such as the capture of the USS Pueblo by North Korea during the Viet
Nam era and the attack on the USS Liberty by Israel during the Six Day
War. It seems that surprise attacks like those are like a blow to
the belly and leave us in shock and unable to adequately reply.
Could it be that maybe, just maybe the sinking of the USS Maine
(Spanish American War), the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand (WWI),
the invasion of Poland and Pearl Harbor (World War II), etc., were all
staged events, manipulations leading to other staged "wars" Korea, Viet
Nam, Iraq (no. 1) and (no. 2) and Afghanistan.
These kinds of machinations and manipulations only serve to confuse us
as common citizens and gradually have worn away our sense of purpose
and faith in the institutions, church and state, that gives us our
identity and will to go on. To contest Marie Antoinette, I don't
want to eat cake anymore I want real sustenance.

Standing on the Jordanian
bank of the Jordan River right where many believe Jesus was baptized,
Mikhail Mikhayev, a Russian tourist, enters the brownish water wearing
a long white robe. He takes a deep breath and plunges his entire head
and body under the water. He stands up, crosses himself, and repeats
the dunking and crossing twice more.
Mikhayev may have had a spiritual experience, but it wasn't
a healthy one. Standing on the Israeli-controlled side of the site,
Gidon Bromberg, of Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME), talks
about the dangers.
"If you drink the water, you're likely to get
diarrhea or stomach problems, and if you have a cut, you will probably

against it, but it's still hard to stop people."

on May 6th,
you know that.... Former President G. W. Bush, in a
top-secret phone call to a major European ally, asked for French troops
to join American soldiers in attacking Iraq as a
mission from God?
In 2003 while lobbying leaders to put
together the Coalition of the Willing, President Bush spoke to France’s
President Jacques Chirac. Bush wove a story about how the Biblical
creatures Gog and Magog were at work in the Middle East and how they
must be defeated.
In Genesis and Ezekiel Gog and Magog are forces of the Apocalypse who
are prophesied to come out of the north and destroy Israel unless
stopped. The Book of Revelation took up the Old Testament prophesy:
“And when the thousand years are
shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the
nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to
gather them together to battle … and fire came down from God out of
heaven, and devoured them.”
the time had now come for that battle, telling Chirac:
“This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to
erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins”.
The story of the conversation emerged only because the Elysée
Palace, baffled by Bush’s words, sought advice from Thomas Römer,
a professor of theology at the University of Lausanne. Four years
later, Römer gave an account in the September 2007 issue of the
university’s review, Allez savoir. The article apparently went
unnoticed, although it was referred to in a French newspaper.
The story has
now been confirmed by Chirac himself in a new book
[Si Vous le Répétez, Je
Démentirai (If You Repeat it, I Will Deny)]
published in France in March, by journalist Jean Claude Maurice. Chirac
is said to have been stupefied and disturbed by Bush’s invocation of
Biblical prophesy to justify the war in Iraq and “wondered how someone
could be so superficial and fanatical in their beliefs”.
This revelation is the "mother of all
the smoking guns" which confirms what these madmen - guided by satan -
doing while claiming to be of God. Individuals like Bush, of
the school of Peter Lemesurier and his "The Armageddon Script - Prophecy in Action
to the erroneous and most
dangerous concept that man needs to help God
in fulfillment of prophecies.
This revelation also exposes the root of all
conspiracies; conspiracies which are
duly denied by those who do not have the faith to face their reality.
Prophecy is indeed fulfilled through the action of man without him being aware of
it. When he claims: "I
am going to do this, thus and such with the intent of fulfilling
prophecy." you may rest assured that he/she is at the service of
satan (and allowed by God).
Let us illustrate such idiocy in an easy to relate scenario....
Iscariot saying to himself: "Once I
figure out exactly how many silver coins I need to charge, I will
go ahead and betray Jesus so that Isaiah's prophecies are fulfilled and
saved from its sins."; or
Hitler saying: "Oh,
Vatican did not obey Our Lady of Fatima (3) so I guess I have to start WW II so that
Her prophecies and warnings are fulfilled."
God does not work
in that way and, if there is a human being alive today
who can assure you of that with
absolute certainty, it is miguel de
Lady of Fatima
you know.... that it was Cheney's Halliburton who was
the key contractor for the construction of the failed oil drilling
platform, the failure which potentially may turn the Gulf of
México into one large oil slick? (1)
* Halliburton performed a
variety of services on the rig, including cementing, and had four
employees stationed on the rig at the time of the accident.
Halliburton's employees returned to shore safely, due, in part, to the
brave rescue efforts by the U.S. Coast Guard and other organizations.
* Halliburton had completed the cementing of the final
production casing string in accordance with the well design
approximately 20 hours prior to the incident. The cement slurry design
was consistent with that utilized in other similar applications.
* In accordance with accepted industry practice approved by
our customers, tests demonstrating the integrity of the production
casing string were completed.
* At the time of the incident, well operations had not yet
reached the point requiring the placement of the final cement plug
which would enable the planned temporary abandonment of the well,
consistent with normal oilfield practice.
* We are assisting with planning and engineering support
for a wide range of options designed to secure the well, including a
potential relief well.
This catastrophe certainly is not
the result of a
conspiracy per se. It is the result of actions by men and institutions
who - being blinded by their arrogance - are not conscious of being
part of the fulfillment of the prophecies of the End of These Times.
We are seeing this on the global stage and at all levels - educational
and economic .... yet, they are unable to see it because God Wills it

Regarding the latest
"terrorist" attempt in New York
The curious (and obviously staged) 'car event' in
NYCs Times Square is to me funnier then a Marx Brothers movie. As a
native NYer and one who was born and grew up a few blocks away from
the 'scene of the crime', I felt the need to pass along a few
1) YOU CANNOT PARK THERE!!!!
By this I mean: 'do not
pass GO, do not collect $200...".
In my lifetime it has been literally impossible for a passenger car to
park... or stand.... or stop there! Even delivery trucks have severely
restricted locations and hours.
2) For the last 30 years there has always been a very strong
in the area. Large numbers of uniformed AND plainclothes cops on foot
patrol. Marked and unmarked police cars cruise constantly. And
uniformed NYPD cops on horseback - for which there has long been a
special facility for the horses in the area!
3) NYC tow trucks constantly prowl the side streets
- and are
expert in hooking up and towing away a car in under 3 minutes (as I
know from sorry personal experience).
Between all this, the cameras, and the signs ("Do not even THINK of
parking here!!!.... Fine and Tow $250 minimum), this is just
impossible... unless it was staged/allowed.
The heavy police presence is to protect the thousands of tourists and
theatergoers. It is strong in daytime; but in the 5- Midnight
shift (when the theaters are in operation) it is even stronger.
...and that is when this 'incident' happened.
If I count correctly, this is now the third 'suspicious vehicle'
found (amazingly!) parked in the area. One was right on 42 street where
all could see it.
The silliness of this became very obvious
when I noted that TV reporters 1) could not get the street location
correct, constantly changing it and giving conflicting reports, and
2) mentioning 'propane tanks' long before the car had even been

From (Mr.) GR @ US
Reflecting on your discussion of H1N1 and its
‘necessary flu shot' I can relate to that (non sequitur).
In seeking an inexpensive healthy daily sustenance. Researching leads
one down a path of inquiry based on ones trusting knowledge of proper
nutrition and whether available foods are indeed really what they are
portrayed to be (call it being in perceived survival mode). At the
least, I am concerned with healthy choices; choices of what to eat and
choices of what is fit to eat. Up until a century ago this thinking was
quite simply: drink fresh local water (not chemically treated), eat
fresh (not unnaturally fertilized) vegetables, eat ‘freshly killed’
non-hormone fed animals - fresh caught ‘wild’ fish, fresh fruit,
unprocessed nuts, non-pasteurized dairy and whatever else God has
originally provided in the natural state and also generally what God
has provided for our food endemically.
Today's diet is ever so complicated due to the availability of choices
promulgated by the advertising media enabled by global transportation.
The whole world is for your selection. But the price for that is high.
Now, to ensure long shelf life (read sustained marketability of each
item), processing and lengthy preservation is needed. Some methods such
as many from times of antiquity are not harmful while many modern
methods alter our food into downright poisonous substances.
In line with this situation there has developed a vast market for
supplements – many of which had their earnest beginnings in successful
treatments/folklore medicine passed down through generations. Preceding
Big Pharma, many promising discoveries were pursued but then dashed
into the ground because they offered no vast potential to wealth.
Silver was found to have anti microbial properties; vitamins importance
was discovered; substances were discovered that could be used as
supplements for nutritional deficiencies; exploration of the body's
immune system was producing questions/answers to disease never before
possible (yet such knowledge is condemned to tiny footnotes in lieu of
Consider the role fresh non-irradiated garlic could play in fighting
MSRA. Has anyone noticed how natural garlic with its attendant
God-given properties is devoid of those properties once irradiated to a
‘pure state’ [according to governmental institutions such as the
FDA]. Yet to speak in natural garlic's behalf is legal blasphemy.
Have you ever cut open a clove of natural garlic and compared it to a
cut open clove of irradiated garlic ? Notice the lack of a green germ
shoot within the irradiated clove - now it has a pathetic brown,
dead or open void; a witness to its impotence and inability to produce
the wonderful cascade of chemical events/substances (one being allicin)
of curative nature.
Man's scientific arrogance together with lobbyist facilitated greed has
corrupted our food supply and enslaved us to a future of fast
diminishing nutrition. Does ANYONE care - Read about Codex
Alimentarius. Has satan decided to torture us a new way – by deceit
through our leaders to force-poison first our minds then our people's
food? I have written to one of my state senators and received the reply
- “Thank you for contacting me regarding the federal regulation of
dietary supplements. I appreciate hearing from you.
While I recognize the potential health benefits of dietary supplements,
I strongly believe that consumers need to have accurate information
about these substances…” Here's a
thought from Albert Einstein: "If the honey bee ever disappeared, man
will only have four years left to live." ….and what are we now
hearing in the news about the U.S. having terminally lost 1/3 of their
bees so far…?
I am 66 and living on the verge of foreclosure and must juggle every
dollar spent. It wasn't always like this and I now know how easy it is
for the poorest folk to be sickly. One must choose amongst nutritive
food, heat/utilities/insurance/taxes/licences AND/OR shelter – whatever
is crying the loudest to be paid on an insufficient income.
In spite of that reality, I truly trust in Jesus every day one day at a
time. I follow your thought Miguel when you say we are heading
inexorably toward the abyss as we veer further away from the Truth… but
I do pray –
Yours in Christ,
A. You are truly Blessed because: (a) You see "progress" for what it
really is; (b) You are able to
trust Jesus every day - one day at a time; (c) You clearly see that we
are heading inexorably toward the abyss as we veer further away from
the Truth; and (d) You do pray.
If more of the thousands upon thousands who view what we publish the
the Name of God were
in that position, we would consider it a most rewarding consolation.
Thank you for taking the time to share a testimony that most need to
carefully review and ponder about.
May God continue to Bless and Keep you!
on May 4th,
you know that.... Cardinal Dario Catrillón Hoyos
has struck back with a vengeance to those who have marginalized him as
of late, including Benedict XVI? (1)
Castrillón Hoyos has
claimed that Pope Benedict XVI, as cardinal prefect of the Congregation
for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), was involved in a 2001 decision to
praise a French bishop for protecting a priest convicted of raping a
boy and sexually assaulting 10 others.
According to the Associated Press, Cardinal
Castrillón told Colombia’s RCN radio on 22 April that the
decision to send a congratulatory letter to Bishop Pierre Pican of
Bayeux-Lisieux was the product of a high-level meeting that included
the then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.
“It was a meeting of cardinals,” he said. “Therefore the
current Pope [Benedict XVI], who at the time was a cardinal, was
present. The Pope [John Paul II] was never at those meetings. However,
the Holy Father was indeed present when we spoke about this matter in
the council, and the cardinals ruled,” Cardinal Castrillón
....a staggering 6.25
million German Catholics, that is a quarter of the German Church, are
expected to leave the Church this year because of the scandal?
This will cost the Church
millions of euros as people leaving opt out of paying church tax (8 per
cent of income tax). In Austria,
30,000 Catholics have left the Church this year, compared to 21,000 by
this time last year, which was a record year.
This is what happens when one places
one's Faith in man or an institution (political or religious) and not
. No matter how much "cognitive dissonance" (2)
and "denial" (3)
one applies to self,
later one's fantasies will collapse as the truth cannot be repressed
any longer. Just as He announced:
whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in
the light: and that which you have spoken in the ear in the chambers,
shall be preached on the housetops. [Luke 12:3]
Someone may say: Well, what about one's faith? What if it "collapses"?
True faith (not intellectual/learned "faith") is given by God -
it is not acquired by man. What God gives you no man
can take from you.
man can come to me, except the Father, who hath sent me, draw him; and
I will raise him up in the last day. [John 6:44]
That which my Father hath given me, is
greater than all: and no one can snatch them out of the hand of my
Father. [John 10:29]
Therefore, the fact that the RC Church Administration
has been run
mostly by scoundrels for millenia does not affect in any way our
position about the Catholic
which has reached us at the most crucial time since
creation in spite of
said scoundrels. (4)

risk of Swine
2009, news stories reported that researchers in Canada had found an
increased risk of pandemic H1N1 (pH1N1) influenza in people who had
previously been vaccinated against seasonal influenza.
health agencies in Canada undertook four additional studies during the
summer of 2009 to investigate further. Taken together, the four studies
included approximately 2,700 people with and without pH1N1.
The first of the studies found the seasonal
vaccine to be associated with an increased risk of approximately 68
percent for pH1N1 disease.

It is amazingly easy. Take a look at the response to the

South Korean warship by North Korea. Had it been staged, with "a

On the other hand, a classic staged event hoping for a

the PRC (Chinese) Embassy in Belgrade by the US back in 1999. (2)
from the news report:
The only target the CIA picked
for NATO's 11-week bombing campaign on Yugoslavia was the one that led
to the U.S. attack on the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, CIA Director
George Tenet said Thursday.
One factor was the method used to find the precise
location of the target -- an intelligence officer using land navigation
techniques that should not be used for aerial targeting because they
provide only an ``approximate location,''
"This episode is unusual,'' Tenet said, because the CIA
does not normally put together by itself specific targets that include
coordinates for bombing operations. The CIA usually provides more
analytical judgements or specific information on targets selected by
others, he said.
"The attack was a mistake,'' Tenet said. "Let me
emphasize, our investigation has determined that no one -- I repeat no
one -- knowingly targeted the Chinese embassy,'' he said.

the peace and
love of Our Risen Lord be with you and yours always!
Please be patient with me as I try to understand what you are saying
through your document How Love Is
Replaced By Fear and How To Avoid It (1)
I thoroughly understand that if the human race had actually listened
and followed the call of Our Lady of Fatima and actually charitably
prayed for sinners, we would not be in the predicament that we are in
now. I get that.
However, I truly wish that more priests would present Hell and its
eternal consequences as Fr. Furniss has done. We are all lost
souls and without any personal acceptance of our sins and the common
mis-belief that God is not a severe and just Judge, there is no longer
any fear of Hell in this sad world.
The most common belief is that "I'm a
good person... God knows that, so He will forgive my indiscretion in
committing any mortal sin, because I'm just a human and He will forgive
me, even though I don't really repent... I'm just looking to have my
fun and find the easy way out
" .....does this make sense?
Am I not understanding your commentary properly? Even St. John
Bosco was shown where his unrepentant boys end up if they commit mortal
sin. There is no longer any ownership of the sins we commit in
this world, nor any sense of what constitutes a sin as mortal. I
am a monthly recipient of the Sacrament of Confession and I still
am bewildered about what is mortal and what is venial in this crazy
world of ours.
Perhaps if we all were reminded of Hell and its eternal consequences,
there would again be less sinning, more charity to our neighbor and a
true return to the Sacraments.
Thank you for all you do for us, miguel!
Thank you for your continued prayers. As an update, we are
financially ruined... are looking at bankruptcy or foreclosure.
husband has taken a $10/hr. job in [state edited out] as a way to keep
afloat until we know God's will for us.... doors keep slamming shut
in [state edited out], so we need to discern where it is we are to end
assured of my prayers for you and yours.
for taking the time to write and express your views as well as for your
very kind words. It gives us an
opportunity to clarify this issue further.
We have mentioned satan, his works and deceptions in over 120 of our
and the reality of hell in over 130 of our documents. (3)
We have revealed and
explained his deceptions, through the Grace of God, better than we have
ever heard or read anywhere. It logically follows that we are trying to
make the point that satan and hell are a reality and warning one and
all about them.
We have also made very clear that there is a vast difference between a
"warning" and a "threat." We summarily reject, with the authority
granted by God, Furniss' failed brand of Evangelization.
As we have also explained a number of times - the latest being in a
recent document (3)
- when an individual is born in Time his ultimate destination -
Heaven or hell - is known to God. Since in Eternity, where there
past nor future, that soul already is wherever it was destined for.
Therefore the Evangelization was supposed to: (a) Minimize the damage
done in Time by those souls who are already in hell but physically
alive on Earth; and (b) Minimize the suffering satan wants to inflict
on souls who are destined for Heaven as they
journey through Time.
This is why the "Pillars for Salvation and for a Safe Journey" are: (a)
God above all (by word and
deed); and (b) Love thy neighbor as thyself.
When one truly loves
God one cannot help but love one's neighbor which then, by the very
nature of love, moves us to: ...Love
your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that
persecute and calumniate you: [Matthew 5:44]
We have also amply explained how "Love" works in a soul (4) and
review of this document.
Therefore, we must make sure with illustrative warnings, not with
threats, that the Faithful
understand the reality of sin, satan and hell. We must also live and
by example the "Pillars of Salvation" as defined above (and endorsed by
the only One Who truly matters, God): Thou
shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole
soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy
neighbour as thyself. [Luke
The unsaid part of your message is that because of the Second Vatican
world is where it is now since the "evil council" debunked
satan and hell.
Tragically, as you point out, the existence of hell and
satan have been de-emphasized by the alleged Evangelizers but, we ask
you, Does it really matter at this
If the techniques used by the alleged Evangelizers of the pre
Vatican II Church
had been worth anything, the world would have never
the point it is in now. The Church already was in serious need of repair
in the time of Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) - nearly 800 years before
said Council. The reality is that Christianity started going off its
tracks the moment Constantine made it the Religion of the Empire (6)
- a strictly political
move to shore up his falling empire.
Regarding being "...bewildered about
what is mortal sin and what is
venial sin in this crazy world of ours
" there is no need to be.
focus our whole attention in God and strive to truly love Him above
, strive to do His Will at all times, and to console Him,
individual in question will not need to worry much about categories
of sin because, even if said individual was about to, unknowingly,
grave sin, He will gently stop him/her.
We regret that you must go through the difficult times that you are
experiencing now but, as you well know, God does not make mistakes;
therefore, there must be a very important purpose(s) for these trials
and we pray that whatever purpose it is, will soon be achieved. Many
years ago, after his conversion but before his departure from the
world, the man who became m de P had to file for bankruptcy since he
felt that the
other option would not have been acceptable to God (7)
That was one of several severe tests God subjected him to before
floodgates of plenty - on
.... only to then ask him to leave
all behind and follow Him, which, through the Grace of God
In closing.... You state "so we need
to discern where it is we are to end up
". The answer has been
placed before you and the world in a Silver Platter since 1992 and it
still is available (8)
and further clarified when we published the Real Time Line of Creation.
In conclusion.... Keep your focus on God and not satan; on Heaven and
not hell; on loving
and consoling Jesus and Mary and not on elusive definitions and grading
of sins. Then a new life will dawn upon you.
