Did you know that.... we may have "found" the Tabernacle and Ark of the Covenant, which are claimed by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to be in Axum (1)?

To do this, we did not have to travel outside of our Private Chapel, where we were reviewing a book originally published in 1906. A hidden (2) reference in that book led us to where the Holy Scriptures tell us of the final disposition of the Tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant. In the Second Book of the Maccabees we read in Chapter 2:  [our highlighting]

1 Now it is found in the descriptions (3) of Jeremias the prophet, that he commanded them that went into captivity, to take the fire, as it hath been signified, and how he gave charge to them that were carried away into captivity. 2 And how he gave them the law that they should not forget the commandments of the Lord, and that they should not err in their minds, seeing the idols of gold, and silver, and the ornaments of them. 3 And with other such like speeches, he exhorted them that they would not remove the law from their heart. 4 It was also contained in the same writing, how the prophet, being warned by God, commanded that the tabernacle and the ark should accompany him, till he came forth to the mountain where Moses went up, and saw the inheritance of God. 5 And when Jeremias came thither he found a hollow cave: and he carried in thither the tabernacle, and the ark, and the altar of incense, and so stopped the door.

6 Then some of them that followed him, came up to mark the place: but they could not find it. 7 And when Jeremias perceived it, he blamed them, saying:
The place shall be unknown, till God gather together the congregation of the people, and receive them to mercy. 8 And then the Lord will shew these things, and the majesty of the Lord shall appear, and there shall be a cloud as it was also shewed to Moses, and he shewed it when Solomon prayed that the place might be sanctified to the great God.

The Second Book of the Maccabees was the last book of the Old Testament. It was written in Koine Greek, probably in Alexandria, Egypt, c 124 BC. It presents a revised version of the historical events recounted in the first seven chapters of 1 Maccabees, adding material from the Pharisaic tradition, including prayer for the dead and a resurrection on Judgment Day. Catholics and Orthodox consider the work to be canonical and part of the Bible. Protestants and Jews reject most of the doctrinal innovations present in the work. (4)

"Knowing" Jeremiah as we do, and knowing his relationship with God, what we read in 2 Maccabees 2:1-8 is the most theo-logical explanation of what happened with the Tabernacle and Ark of the Covenant.

Of course, if we emulated Media techniques (to keep the issue going indefinitely), we could say that someone came afterward, and stole them, and took them to Ethiopia. This scenario is highly improbable, since there would have been some record of it - after all, we are talking about the Holiest physical items for the Jewish Faith, and not a couple of old wine jugs.

As far as we are concerned, that settles the issue: The Ark of the Covenant is not in Axum, Ethiopia.

(1) The Ethiopian claim Source No. 1  and  Source No. 2
(2) "Hidden" meaning following a reference buried in a multitude of references at the foot of a page.
(3) "The descriptions"... That is, the records or memoirs of Jeremias, a work that is now lost.

Have you heard that.... groups supporting the victims of clerical sex abuse have said the damning Cloyne report indicates other dioceses have covered up sex abuse by the clergy? (1)
[our highlighting]

Reacting to the publication of the 400-page report (2) yesterday, victims said it was worrying that the Irish Catholic Church continued to fail children as recently as 2009.

Maeve Lewis of the One in Four support group pointed to the publication of previous reports into the Ferns and Dublin dioceses, which also highlighted failures by the church to protect children. The 2005 Ferns report listed more than 100 allegations of sexual abuse, paedophilia, rape and other crimes against minors by 21 priests in the diocese over 40 years.

Four years later, the Murphy Report into the Dublin Diocese named a number of bishops and auxiliary bishops who failed to properly investigate abuse claims and failed to protect children from sexual abuse.

High-profile victim and campaigner Andrew Madden said we could "take it as read that there was the same level of cover-up across the Catholic Church in Ireland". Mr Madden stopped short of calling for an investigation into the remaining dioceses.

But he said the publication of the investigations was often the only justice victims got, adding the Catholic bishops "cannot be trusted with allegations of child sexual abuse".

The M+G+R Foundation comments: We are beginning to wonder if even one of them perished. [Matt. 8: 29-32]

The faith of most is in tatters, and all the Church Administration is doing is stoking the fires of the furnace in which the faith of the innocent Faithful is being destroyed.

And I, miguel de Portugal, in the Name of God, echo the words He uttered through Malachi....

[1] And now, O ye priests, this commandment is to you. [2] If you will not hear, and if you will not lay it to heart, to give glory to my name, saith the Lord of hosts: I will send poverty upon you, and will curse your blessings, yea I will curse them, because you have not laid it to heart. [3] Behold, I will cast the shoulder to you, and I will scatter upon your face the dung of your solemnities, and it shall take you away with it. [4] And you shall know that I sent you this commandment, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the Lord of hosts. [5] My covenant was with him of life and peace: and I gave him fear: and he feared me, and he was afraid before my name.

[6] The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace, and in equity, and turned many away from iniquity. [7] For the lips of the priest shall keep knowledge, and they shall seek the law at his mouth: because he is the angel of the Lord of hosts. [8] But you have departed out of the way, and have caused many to stumble at the law:
you have made void the covenant of Levi, saith the Lord of hosts. [9] Therefore have I also made you contemptible, and base before all people, as you have not kept my ways, and have accepted persons in the law. [Malachi 2]

In the end, when it will be too late for them, the faithless Hierarchs will believe as they see every Biblical prophecy and Marian warning fulfilled. A fulfillment that is imminent.

In reference to Mrs. MMcK remarks of July 13th (1) regarding public pay phones....

From personal observation on both major cities and small towns, pay phones are largely disappearing. Formerly ubiquitous, it is much harder to find them now - even in great urban train/bus terminals. While most bars still have one, finding one on a street or in a public place is tricky.

On a similar and possibly more frightening note, major cities like New York (NYC) used to have Fire/Police call boxes on street corners. They were a common sight until recently. Even the small town I am in used to have this system. It was simple, but brilliant. Basically it was a telegraph style system NOT in any way dependent on the power grid or conventional phone lines.

Thus they are a fail-safe against power outages. In NYC they saved lives during the blackouts of 1965, 1977, and 2003, and during the events of 9/11.

But they are being phased out in many locales, often with the argument that they are 'hard to maintain'. As they effectively function as glorified doorbells, this assertion defies logic.

I guess the message is: "In case of emergency, die".

Have you heard that......  a string of a dozen volcanoes, at least several of them active, has been found beneath the frigid seas near Antarctica? (1)

Some of the peaks tower nearly 10,000 feet above the ocean floor - nearly tall enough to break the water's surface. "That's a big volcano. That's a very big volcano. If that was on land it would be quite remarkable," said Philip Leat, a volcanologist with the British Antarctic Survey who led a seafloor mapping expedition to the region in 2007 and 2010.

The group of 12 underwater mountains lies south of the South Sandwich Islands — desolate, ice- covered volcanoes that rise above the southern Atlantic Ocean about halfway between South America and South Africa and erupted as recently as 2008. It's the first time such a large number of undersea volcanoes has been found together in the Antarctic region.

Leat said the survey team was somewhat surprised by the find.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Just another example of the priorities of humans. They can give you an exact analysis of soil on the Moon, but are clueless about a string of volcanoes - under ice !!! - which could erupt violently, melting enough ice to flood most coastal cities. What else don't we know that could change our world in a matter of minutes?

Frankly, it is getting more and more embarrassing to be part of the human race. Wild animals have more sense than we do.

I am a devout Catholic, and my name is R F [edited out the full name out of courtesy].  I endeavor to serve our Lord with honesty and humility (I don't always succeed, but God forgives me!).

Your website makes some rather spectacular claims, and it seems only fair that people who make such claims stand behind them with their names.

Would you please post the names of your membership and leadership on your website?  If you choose not to do so, then this would seem sort of cowardly....


We see that you "don't always succeed" in serving "our Lord with honesty and humility" since you have passed judgment - "this would seem sort of cowardly...." - on something that obviously is beyond your comprehension.

All that God Wills to be revealed about us, you will find at and through the following pages: About The M+G+R Foundation and About miguel de Portugal.

Since you are "a devout Catholic" we presume that you frequently partake of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Next time you do, bring up the fact that you judged that Our Lord Jesus Christ acted in a cowardly manner too when He walked among men.

Let us not forget that [9] they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying: Tell the vision to no man, till the Son of man be risen from the dead. [Matt. 17] and many other instances where His real identity was withheld from the curious mob - and, in this case, even from the other Apostles.

As we are sure you know, this concept was already spoken about in the days of Isaiah:

And he shall grow up as a tender plant before him, and as a root out of a thirsty ground: there is no beauty in him, nor comeliness: and we have seen him, and there was no sightliness, that we should be desirous of him: [Isaiah 53:2]

What matters is what is said, and not the worldly qualifications/attractiveness of the source. In this manner, only those who have Ears will Hear, and only those who have Eyes will See. It is the same type of insurance that Jesus used when speaking in parables.

Any positive/enticing worldly attribute of the speaker may "sell" the message to those who should not "buy" it and, God forbid!, "...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 (God, of course!) should heal them." [Matt. 13:15]

We could say more, but we cannot in accordance to our working creed.

Thank you for the opportunity to share this with our readers..

It seems that the October 28th day has had quite a bit of "mileage" through important historical events:

On that date Constantine become sole emperor of Rome.  On this day in 312 AD, the Battle of the Milvian Bridge was won.
The words "In hoc signo vinces" blazoned with a cross were allegedly seen as a sign of victory and a portent of Rome's becoming the bastion of Christianity. Of course this was more of a fork in the road for the newly established institution of the Catholic Church.  The "road not taken" has made all the difference and might have brought us to this point in time.

Other interesting happenings for this date are:

1. The Siege of La Rochelle 1628, which had lasted for 14 months, ended with the surrender of the Huguenots.

2. Harvard was founded in 1636.

3. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated in 1886.

4. The U.S. Congress passed the Volstead Act in 1919 over President Woodrow Wilson's veto, paving the way for Prohibition to begin the following January.

5. March on Rome: Italian fascists led by Benito Mussolini marched on Rome in 1922 and took over the Italian government.

6. Black Monday, a day in the Wall Street Crash of 1929.

7. Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962: Soviet Union leader Nikita Khrushchev announced that he had ordered the removal of Soviet missile bases in Cuba.

8. John XIII elected Pope in 1958.

9. 1965 – Nostra Aetate, the "Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions" of the Second Vatican Council, is promulgated by Pope Paul VI; it absolved the Jews of responsibility for the death of Jesus, reversing Innocent III's 760 year-old declaration.

People born on this date:

1.  Desiderius Erasmus, Theologian

2.  Elipahalet Remington, arms manufacturer.

3.  Jonas Salk of vaccine fame.

4. Bill Gates, computer software executive.

A. Quite, quite interesting.... to which we add that the Patron Saints for October 28th are the Apostles Simon and Jude. St. Jude is the traditional Patron of Hopeless Cases.

 Thank you for taking the time to pursue that "in vogue" date further.

With reference to the posting of July 11th.... (1)

I don't know much about Mr. WO, other than his negative experience with Fulton Sheen. But his post today reminded me of a recent dream I had, which I understand somewhat better in light of his take on the new liturgy.

I was dreaming that I was praying, and suddenly became aware that I was "praising" God in ways alien to His nature, and that it did not feel like my will in the prayer.  I awoke, with the sense that these alien prayers of alleged praise (I don't remember the specifics, or even if there were specifics, since dreams are vague this way) were whispered to me by a hostile entity, to pervert the true purpose of prayer.

It is in clearer focus now, that one must beware even of something as supposedly pious as the liturgy, to see that it is authentic praise of God.


Thank you for sharing this valuable experience. It certainly harmonizes well with Mr. WO's feelings about the new rite of the Mass.

It is a perfect example of what we mean when we say that it is imperative for the Faithful to live under the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God. This was exemplified, in your case, by the advanced warning:   "....suddenly became aware that I was 'praising' God in ways alien to His nature, and that it did not feel like my will in the prayer."

May those who have Eyes, See and Ears, Hear!

Have you heard that......  we may be already experiencing what was published in our May 3rd, 2011 post: about the effect strange emissions from the Sun may be having on matter? (1)

It was business as usual when Mount Etna, the active volcano on the Italian island of Sicily, erupted for the fifth time since the beginning of the year on Saturday afternoon, the Daily Mail reports. The eruption was brief but intense, sweeping enough ash to close Catania's Fontanarossa airport overnight, a measure that was likewise required for its eruption last May. But lately, the volcanic eruptions on the island have been linked to some very odd things...

It started last month, when large numbers of locals turned up for work early. As chatter over this unprecedented occurrence grew louder, two local Sicilians organized a Facebook page to compare notes. It came to light that for thousands of people, digital clocks and watchers, from computers to alarm clocks, were all running 15 minutes fast. RIA Novosti also reported that in Palermo digital clocks and watches in Sicily were running more than 15 minutes fast. One of the people who started the page, Francesco Nicosia, told French online magazine Rue89 that, "I realized something was wrong when I started getting to work earlier. After some investigation I noticed that I wasn't the only one who was on time, which is quite rare here in Sicily." (2)

....on June 7, 2011, Earth-orbiting satellites detected a flash of X-rays coming from the western edge of the solar disk? (1)

Registering only "M" (for medium) on the Richter scale of solar flares, the blast at first appeared to be a run-of-the-mill eruption - that is, until researchers looked at the movies.

"We'd never seen anything like it," says Alex Young, a solar physicist at the Goddard Space Flight Center. "Half of the sun appeared to be blowing itself to bits."  NASA has just released new high-resolution videos of the event recorded by the Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Just another reminder that we have reached the proverbial "end of the rope".

Again, the symbolism is exquisite. "Half of the sun appeared to be blowing itself to bits." just like our "civilization" will soon.

With reference to the posting of July 11th;  specifically, your response to the letter from (Mr.) TJ. (1)

I could not help but laugh (in a cynical way, I must admit) when I went over your disaster supply list and saw the roll of quarters for phone calls.

I live out  in the country, and all pay phones were removed around here a couple of  years ago.  I was really surprised, and asked one of the clerks at a  convenience store why this was since so many might need it in an  emergency.

She told me that they were put out of commission because  they were no longer generating the money needed for their upkeep.  So  if there is an emergency and the phones are out (which happens quite a  bit here with cell phones), we are unable to make calls.  If one can  afford it, they have a land line with a cheap phone that is used for emergencies. It's our little insurance policy, but unfortunately, it is not cheap.

I would suggest that everyone should scope out the area in which they  live and see if there are working pay phones around.  I can say within  a 60 mile radius I have not seen a pay phone in a while.  I started  looking when I noticed they were being taken down.


A. Thank you! for a very appropriate and timely update.

From (Mr.) WO @ US

Some weeks ago I began perusing the New Roman Missal (1) which contains the new rite of the Mass.

My interior feeling, before even looking at it, was that something was terribly wrong. The reality was far worse than my intuition.

A superficial survey of the documents revolted me. To me, the text reeks of evil - while crafted in seemingly 'pious' and 'orthodox' verbiage.

Who could possibly object to such liturgical beauty? Such elegant prose? I could easily picture Fulton Sheen pronouncing its words in mellifluous tones.

In the FYI&R post of July 10th (2) you pondered: "Have the Masters of the World now shifted their 'Curtain Time' to October 28, 2011?"

That statement caught my attention, since the date for the implementation of the new Missal (and the new Mass language) is  November 27, 2011 - The First Sunday of Advent and exactly 30 days after October 28th.

Another "warning nudge" from Heaven?


Thank you for sharing your views with us regarding the upcoming "New and Improved" Roman Missal - US version. Since we have not reviewed it, we cannot comment upon it. However, we do have the (US) Daily Roman Missal - Fourth Edition 1998 (ISBN 0-87973-120-6) which we bought in Houston, TX, right after its publication. It was edited by Rev. James Socias - a priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei. (2)

As expected, the Missal was dedicated to Josemaria Escrivá; a fact which may explain the following:

It is the best organized and most comprehensive Roman Missal that we have used (the other two being the editions of Portugal and Spain). Nonetheless, the prayers are dead.  We have never encountered such dead/hollow/meaningless prayer texts anywhere. We only noticed that it was the work of Opus Dei when we looked at its source, due to the abysmal quality of the prayers.

Therefore, based on that, we can imagine what the next one will be like - thus, your reaction.

As an aside - Rev. Socias worked himself into our Mailing List from the very beginning of our Internet presence without any indication of his priesthood or OD affiliation, although he did use his correct name. It was not until we received a virus laden e-mail from him - which we promptly reported to the appropriate Internet authorities - that we, upon a quick search, found out who he was and whom did he serve. Later on is when we saw his name in the US Roman Missal.

Being that God has a sense of humor..... After we had removed Socias from our list - one good day we received an e-mail from him notifying his correspondents of his new mailing address. Just as Jesus promised....

For there is not any thing secret that shall not be made manifest, nor hidden, that shall not be known and come abroad.  [Luke 8: 17]

....Socias sent the e-mail to his entire mailing list showing all names and addresses. At that point we became the "proud owners" of the e-mail list of Opus Dei's key men in the US. Needless to say, we saved it as a souvenir and never used it.

Regarding  the Oct. 28th date possibility mentioned in your FYI&R post for the 10th  of July (1) (understanding the "no dates" policy to which you adhere):  If this was the plan, then one detail in the international financial scene will have to change, and that change may have started.
Specifically, to summarize the current state of the financial crisis in very few words, up until now, the objective seems to have been to walk a tightrope between default and collapse (tightening money supply) and inflationary meltdown (loosening greatly). Walking that tightrope does nothing to reduce the danger, only to prolong this tense holding pattern.

If the objective date is as close as October, a precipitating crisis is probably a necessity, to raise the panic level in the world.  The surest way to induce that crisis is to precipitate the default and collapse, because a tightening money supply is sure to induce it in a short time.  A looser money supply will eventually lead to inflation, but the timing is not sufficiently predictable.  So if this is the case, we may look for things like:  Replacement of heads of international banks who are not compliant (think DSK), Treasury Secretary of the US, etc.

Ben Bernanke will be key, and he is not a tight money guy, so how that is managed will be significant.  The US could induce the crisis if it does not raise its debt limit, as one possibility.  Alternatively, you could see something like a Greek default, or other Euro nation.  The list goes on, and it could be other triggers, but the key is that it would represent default of debt, which would create a cascade leading to a rapid collapse of the financial system, possibly even as quickly as the "hour" spoken of in Revelation, where Babylon the great collapses.
One additional suggestion to your readers:  While this is obviously to be GREATLY subordinated to your primary instruction to put one's spiritual life in order, if the scenario is to come to pass, keeping some amount of physical cash or barter goods could make life much easier during that time.  Relying on the banking system will not work.

Thank you for sharing your views and giving us an opportunity to: (a) make a general comment regarding the acceleration of chaos needed if the Masters of the World have changed the False Christ "Debut" date; and (b) to issue a reminder about how to be physically ready for what is to come.

Adhering to our "no dates" policy but enjoying the freedom to be able to speculate just as "the guy next door".... Considering the ten year delay that God's Mercy granted us (2), the crunch of events that will lead to a "justified" manifestation of the False Christ requires a massive cataclysmic event which will submerge the world into total chaos, immediately. This, of course, could be a natural event - a major asteroid hit or a super volcano eruption, but it could also be man-made. Do you realize what would happen if a nuclear device is detonated at the Yellowstone caldera?

Now, some may ask: How is God going to cooperate with this hideous plan by allowing a natural cataclysmic event that would throw the world into chaos?

This will be answered to a select few, via a new document that we have almost finished.  This document will be made available only by invitation; it will not be posted for the general public.

Regarding the physical preparation that you wisely brought up: We recommend that our readers visit the pages (3) that we have published regarding the level and degree of preparation that we recommend.

Bostonians realized Thursday that the network's images of fireworks over various city landmarks were not only breathtaking, but also fake.

An area research scientist appears to have been among the first to point out the discrepancy on a Boston-based blog. Then the Boston Globe got wind of the scandal and blew the story up in its pages Friday, noting that "it would not have been geographically possible to see the fireworks above and behind the landmarks in question"--including the State House, Quincy Market, and home plate at Fenway Park--"since the display was launched from a barge in the Charles River and in directions away from those places."

From miguel de Portugal

In the race to sell books, videos, survival supplies, etc., the apocalyptic events famously expected for December 21st, 2012, have now been shifted forward to October 28, 2011. (1)

As we understood it, the original claim was associated with a planetary alignment, and not some numbers in a calendar.  As we stated in our document (2) about the Mayan Calendar:

Astronomically speaking, exactly what is expected take place on December 21, 2012?
We learn from John Major Jenkins' article (3) that there is going to be a very unique galactic alignment on that day which involves our whole Galaxy, our Sun, the Earth, etc.  The details of this alignment are outside of the scope of this document. What is necessary for us to share with the reader is the following quote:
It should be noted that because precession is a very slow process, similar astronomical alignments will be evident on the winter solstice dates within perhaps 5 years on either side of 2012. However, the accuracy of the conjunction of 2012 is quite astounding, beyond anything deemed calculable by the ancient Maya, and serves well to represent the perfect mid-point of the process.
We contacted Mr. Major Jenkins about this plus or minus 5 year period, to ensure that we understood what he meant. Our question was:
Do you speak of a "bell shaped probability curve" wherein the highest probability for this event is in the year 2012 but that there is a high probability for "whatever is to take place"  in the period 2007 through 2017?
To which he kindly responded in confirmation:
You could very well conceive it as a bell shaped curve, but that would be the ideal. Astrologers know there are offset trigger events, perhaps other events like eclipses and so on. It is certainly not realistic, in my view, to expect something specific on December 21, 2012, unless it was a humanly contrived event.  
Notice that Mr. Major Jenkins has stated that  " ...unless it was a humanly contrived event". This is precisely the reason why we had to address the Mayan Calendar issue. Mr. Major Jenkins may be more spiritually illuminated than he may be aware of.
As we have stated - we do not necessarily doubt the accuracy of the timing of the precession/alignment. We do know that as we approach the Second Coming of Christ, the inhabitants of the Earth will feel that the end of the world is near - as we have amply described in our Sequence of Events Leading to the End of These Times (Not of the World!) (4).  It will be a time of despair for those who are away from God (even if they think now that they are not away from Him). This is precisely what satan wants, so that he will have a "begging audience" when he manifests himself as the Savior of Humanity and the World.

However, as many seem to always forget: There is only one God: an Omnipotent God  Whom even satan (or an extraterrestrial, if the reader so wishes) must serve. Therefore, the Faithful may rest assured that what is to come, The End of These Times - IS NOT the end of the world.

This schedule change (5) will catch those who are carefully planning the False Second Coming completely by surprise. As they rush themselves to produce the False Christ ahead of their updated schedule (6), they will stumble and will achieve the deception for only a brief period. This will spare many who would fall for the deception and who should not, in accordance to the listings in the Book of Life (7).

Indeed, Mr. Major Jenkins (8) , without realizing it, was right on target  when he stated: "It is certainly not realistic in my view, to expect something specific on December 21, 2012, unless it was a humanly contrived event. "

Now, the question is: "Have the Masters of the World now shifted their 'Curtain Time' to October 28, 2011 ?"

Misconceptions About the 2012 Alignment

Transcript of a 1995 interview for Esoterra Magazine: 

Posted on July 9th, 2011  [Mary, Miraculous Mother]

Did you know that..... the famous 1970 Beatles' song "Let it be" (1) sounds as if it is a song praising the Virgin Mary?  The first few stanzas read:

When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

and the song ends with....

I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

 As we have written frequently.... all that we need to know and learn may be found on the Sacred Scriptures. God has warned us many times that He sees what man cannot see, and He will then act accordingly.
In 2 Maccabees 13: 39-40, we learn why God allowed a number of men from His chosen people to die in a battle fought for Him. In these verses we read:
On the following day, since the task had now become urgent, Judas and his men went to gather up the bodies of the slain and bury them with their kinsmen in their ancestral tombs. But under the tunic of each of the dead they found amulets sacred to the idols of Jamnia, which the law forbids the Jews to wear. So it was clear to all that this was why these men had been slain.
In the New Testament Our Lord Jesus warns us through Luke 13:25-28:
 ...'Lord, open the door for us.' He will say to you in reply, 'I do not know where you are from.' And you will say, 'We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.' Then he will say to you, 'I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers!' ...And there will be wailing and grinding of teeth .... when you see... yourselves cast out. (from the kingdom of God)
Who is God warning? Not "the lost"; not the proverbial "sinners" - He is warning those who think that by just being a Jew (2 Maccabees 13) or a professed Christian (Luke 13), they have not a thing to worry about. Thus, these deluded souls believe that they can go and do as they please and that, somehow, at the end, all will be well.

Well, dear brothers and sisters, it is just not that way. This erroneous thinking has unleashed untold suffering on the world for the last 1,600 years.

Let us not blame God for forgetting certain of His children, because these are the children who forgot God and embraced the idol Mammon (and its many different "amulets") while pretending to be with God while leading others to perdition.

[Note: We are not equating Sacramentals with amulets. The "amulets" in this case represent world riches and power. (1)]

Did you know that..... many "conclusive" proofs used by the Vatican to effect a Beatification and/or Canonization are outright invalid? (1)

There was a time when Kings could allegedly heal certain diseases with their touch – just because they were the King. Although, for today's man, this may sound like superstition or an overdose of religious credulity, this phenomenon is next to impossible to deny, thanks to the extensive number of cases of this phenomena throughout history.

The purpose of our new (1) document is to enable the Faithful to separate the "wheat" from the "chaff" in the seemingly never-ending array of healing miracles which have accompanied Christianity and - most specifically - Catholicism.

Those whose Faith is based on God will leave that document with even stronger Faith. Those whose Faith is purely intellectual should not review it because "your Faith world" may come crashing down.
(1) When Kings (seemed to) Miraculously Heal the Sick

and that....

.....the "let's sink the prominent Jews" syndrome continues to spread unabated?

Now it is Rupert Murdoch's turn. It seems that he, like Mr. Geithner (the Secretary of the US Treasury, who is planning to leave office soon – for "personal reasons", of course!), as well as Mr. Strauss-Kahn, is considered a Jew by certain anti-Semitic groups.

We are not evaluating the scandal Mr. Murdoch's media empire is involved in now. We are just pointing out that it is very strange that so many very high profile Jews are either under attack or are "taking early retirement" (as with Mr. Geithner).

Are we seeing the visible manifestation of what we announced in our document  satan's Final Act?

If you wish to review..... what we consider the most accurate picture - in all aspects - of  "Super" Catholic Spain and all that it entails, we highly recommend this article in the Olive Press.

The best part of the article is that it gives an excellent generic, and accurate, example of the Europe that was Super Catholic. It will help the reader understand European history and current news as well as Opus Dei activities, much better.


Have you heard that..... an Icelandic stratovolcano, one the country's most active, could erupt at any time? (1)

University of Iceland geophysicist Pall Einarsson said Wednesday that measurement instruments have shown "unusual" magma movements around the Hekla volcano in recent days. He added, however, that it could not be stated with any certainty that the activity picked up by sensors at the volcano in south Iceland is a signal of an imminent eruption

According to the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service,  the GPS movements around Hekla  in the past few days are real.  Civil disaster authorities and local emergency authorities in the country also were notified Wednesday of the possibility of an eruption.

The M+G+R Foundation comments:  The possible consequence being another long term shut down of European air space.

From (Mr.) IW @ US

With reference to the Rosa Mystica post and Novena (1).... 

I hit a problem for me with the final prayer, which seems to be an integral part of the whole devotion:
Lord Jesus Christ, you have sent to us Your Mother as a wonderful example of holiness and mysticism and especially as an ideal and patroness for the priests and religious. I ask You, to the extent that You have ordained from all Eternity, to grant me Your help, to imitate Your Most Holy Mother more and more, to become a soul of expiation and a victim soul for those priests and religious who fail You. I ask this special favor in Your Most Holy Name. Amen.
Specifically with: "... to become a soul of expiation and a victim soul..." .  I can't willingly pray, in so many words, to become a "victim soul"; that brings to mind some of the stories I have heard of saints and mystics who endured (or sought) incredible sufferings and austerities. I don't want to "write a check I can't cash", and this prayer seems like that to me.
I agree with the need to repent of my own sins, and to make reparation for them, and to offer reparation on behalf of this country, and to offer reparation on behalf of priests and religious who have fallen - and will gladly do so.


We admire your sincerity and the fact that you are fully conscious of the words you utilize in prayer. Most people do not think about what they are praying. We have pointed this out in reference to the Lord's Prayer, through which people set forth the conditions for their own judgment. (2)

We should have been more precise in the wording used in the Rosa Mystica Novena, since the prayer should have read:

Lord Jesus Christ, you have sent to us Your Mother as a wonderful example of holiness and mysticism and especially as an ideal and patroness for the priests and religious. I ask You, to the extent that You may have ordained from all Eternity, to grant me Your help, to imitate Your Most Holy Mother more and more, to become a soul of expiation and a victim soul for those priests and religious who fail You. I ask this special favor in Your Most Holy Name. Amen.

We cannot presuppose what God has specifically ordained for each soul. Therefore, the word "may" is a must when one does not have a working understanding with God: that this conditional qualifier is understood as a “given”.

Now, if He has ordained that particular destiny and mission for a soul from all Eternity, then we must understand that it is the best for the particular soul, and welcome it as such.

The tailor-made Will of God (3) for each of us is Perfection, and with Faith we should embrace it. Who does not want Perfection? Unfortunately, there are many poor and disoriented souls who do not want this Perfection. They automatically think that the Will of God is something to fear; such is the product of the failed Evangelization.

Only satan wishes that souls equate the Will of God with pain and misery. Tragically, that is commonly the subconscious feeling of most Christians. Think about it!

The "smoke of satan" that Paul VI spoke about had seeped into Christianity many centuries centuries ago: when the Christian leaders realized, shortly after the Church "went Imperial" (4), that Christianity was a never to be exhausted gold mine (at the expense of the souls Jesus intended to deliver from misery with the truly Good News).

Thank you for the opportunity to cover this matter in this Forum.

The recent Supreme Court decision.... about which we commented upon last June 30th (1), when all is said and done, is tame considering a Ruling issued in early April 2002.

 On April 16th, 2002, Reuters News Agency published the following::
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down a federal pornography law that makes it a crime to have computer-generated pictures that look like real children engaged in sexual acts, ruling the law violates free-speech rights.... The law targeted advanced computer imaging technology that can be used to alter a child's innocent picture into a depiction of a child engaged in sex.

The M+G+R Foundation comments:  Brothers and sisters - this is an abomination in the eyes of God.
September 11, 2001, "came" and "went" and it is obvious that we did not get the message with its implied warning as to what may lie in our future if we continue on that path.
The implied warning through the 9-11 symbolism may be found at Revelations 18:21: A mighty angel picked up a stone like a huge millstone and threw it into the sea and said:  "With such force will Babylon the great city be thrown down, and will never be found again."
The confirmation that those events were intended as a Divine warning may be found at Revelations 18: 16-19: ...they cry out: "Alas, alas, great city... In one hour this great wealth has been ruined." Every captain of a ship, every traveler.... stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her pyre....  A better prophetic image of what took place in New York would be hard to present.
God, in His infinite Mercy, symbolically warned us with a condensed version of Revelations: 16-19 through the Twin Tower disaster.
The American bastion of Justice, The Supreme Court of the United States of America, then, symbolically responded with an abomination in the name of "Freedom of Speech", and it continues in the path of moral destruction as we highlighted on the June 30th posting.
Now, the Supreme Court of Heaven, exercising its supreme sovereignty over all of Creation, has issued its own ruling; a ruling about which we were warned  through the second and last message from Garabandal:
As my message (of October 18) has not been complied with and have 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.....  You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts. If you ask His forgiveness with sincere hearts, He will pardon you. I, your mother, through the intercession (intervention) of St. Michael the Archangel, ask you to amend your lives. You are now receiving the last warnings. I love you very much and do not want your condemnation. Pray to Us with sincerity and We will grant your requests. You should make more sacrifices. Think about the passion of Jesus.

We strongly suggest that the Faithful offer the Novena of Reparation to God and to the Mother of our Savior, Jesus Christ, as outlined in our post of July 5th, to secure a cushioning of the blows which will result from the fulfillment in Time of the above mentioned Ruling from Heaven.

Once again we wish to remind one and all of the intercessory power that Mary holds; let us not forget that there is nothing that the Most Holy Trinity will deny Her. (2)

Posted on July 5th, 2011 [Feast of the Seven Joys of Mary]

On July 13th, 1947, Our Lady, manifesting Herself as the Rosa Mystica, said....
I wish that the 13th of each month be celebrated as a Marian Day.... On this day I shall pour out vocational holiness and abundant graces on those religious orders and spiritual institutes who have honoured me especially.
I wish that the 13th July be celebrated each year in honour of the Rosa Mystica. 
In reparation for the dismissal by the "prudent" Roman Catholic Church Administration and Religious Orders Leaders of this special request by the Mother of God (in the Person of Jesus, Who gave us the example of obedience to His Mother at the wedding feast in Cana [John 2: 1-5]), we suggest that the following novena be started on July 5th, to be concluded on July 13th. We could not possibly offer enough reparation to our Heavenly Mother, but we can certainly make an effort to do so.

Please note that we have personalized the following prayers by replacing We with I and Us with Me.  It is high time that we stop diluting (and deluding ourselves about) our sins and transgressions by using the collective We and Us. It is "I" who have sinned; it is "Me" who needs forgiveness. Let us call a spade, a "spade".

There will not be a crowd before the Throne of Justice when each one of us is called there. It will be one by one; it will be "I" and "Me", and not "We" and "Us", and each one of us should start thinking (and praying!) in those terms.

Daily preparation for the Rosa Mystica Novena
Maria, Rosa Mystica, fragrant rose of mysticism, wonderful flower of divine knowledge; of purity and of blinding beauty; of brilliant and shining glory; of power and overwhelming love...
I kneel before you to pray, to look, and to listen.
To pray that I may become more like You.
To look at You and to inhale Your heavenly perfume until I have, above all, taken something of Your immaculate, pure, and perfect being into my inner self.
To listen more attentively  to every single word of Yours which You have spoken not only in the past, but even more so in the present, more frequently and more insistently.
 I do not always want  to listen and heed what You say.... what Your picture and tears are already saying to me and asking me to do.
I now want to listen to Your quiet motherly voice when it speaks to me so tenderly and consolingly with motherly understanding and concern.

I  now want to open my heart to You so that I remain loyal to Your Son's Will. 

I now want to force myself not to say again "I have no time"; instead to endure Your sad glance even if I should blush and must cast down my eyes in acknowledgment of my many shortcomings.
Mary, fragrant Rose of Mysticism, please help me to look inside myself and to examine myself well; help me to know myself better, especially in those areas of thought and deed which displease You; help me then to become more like You.
I promise that I shall try to imitate You.
Please help me to work on myself so that Your love will always shine through wherever I may be.
3 Hail Mary...
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for me and all of us who have recourse to Thee.

Novena Prayer to Rosa Mystica for Specific Personal Intention.
Offer the Daily Preparation prayer shown above. Then...
Maria Rosa Mystica - Mystical Rose, Immaculate Conception - Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ - Mother of Grace - Mother of the Mystical Body, of the Church... You came down on earth to call upon your children of this earth to love each other, to unite, and live in peace.
You request from me charity, prayer, and penance. I thank God from the bottom of my heart that He has given You to me as my Mother and Mediatrix in all my needs. Mary, full of grace, please help me, I beseech you, and accept my prayers of reparation to you for the many rejections and offenses from all your children - myself included.
You promised us your motherly protection: "I am always very close to you with My motherly love."
Rosa Mystica, Immaculata, Mater Dolorosa, please show me that you are my Mother, Bride of the Holy Ghost, and Queen of Heaven and Earth and forgive my many transgressions against Your Most Immaculate and Loving Heart.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God... that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Final Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, you have sent to us Your Mother as a wonderful example of holiness and mysticism and especially as an ideal and patroness for the priests and religious. I ask You, to the extent that You may have ordained from all Eternity, to grant me Your help, to imitate Your Most Holy Mother more and more, to become a soul of expiation and a victim soul for those priests and religious who fail You. I ask this special favor in Your Most Holy Name. Amen.

Posted on July 4th, 2011 [St. Elizabeth (Queen) of Portugal plus U.S. Celebration of Independence Day]

As we celebrate.... the 4th of July and the meritorious life of St. Elizabeth, Queen of Portugal, we must all remember that the best way to thank God for what He has bestowed upon the US and Portugal, is to strive as hard as we can to do His Will.

His Will was clearly indicated for mankind through His Word as transmitted to us via the Holy Scriptures and, through His Grace, we have explained to you how to discern it.
With this in mind, we entreat you to review this particular document, even if you have already done so ten years ago, and see what else the  Holy Spirit of God reveals to you this time.
For our readers from the US, to whom the Fourth of July celebration is just another occasion for a family gathering without much real symbolism...
 Brethren, do not forget the hundreds of thousands of our children who were, and continue to be, sent to die so that you may have a family outing today.  Offer prayers of reparation for their souls so that they may finally rest in peace soon.
Know that God really loves them, and desires that their souls rest in peace. 
May all of our US readers have a truly Blessed Fourth of July!

Most of the world continues to be informed about.... the bad financial situation of the Eurozone: the (alleged) impending crash of Greece's economy, with (allegedly) Portugal following suit. Such information is underscored by the frequent warnings issued by the US based financial credit rating agencies such as Moody and Standard & Poor.

Well, if that is the case for the Eurozone maybe the US leaders should pay attention to what the international money markets are saying - which is quite a different story. For example, access This Page. When the graph appears you will see the relationship between the US Dollar and the European Euro for the last 12 months.

You can readily see the net drop of the US Dollar as compared to the European Euro. You will notice that one year ago 1 Euro could buy 1.26 US Dollars, and now 1 Euro can buy 1.45 US Dollars.

However, the drop of the US Dollar value started as far back as eleven years ago. On July 3, 2000, 1 Euro could not even buy a whole US Dollar; it could only buy 95 US cents. Now, one single Euro can almost buy a US Dollar and a half.

Moral of the story: How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. [Luke 6:42]

If we claim that the Euro and the European economy are in bad shape, it logically follows the US is in worse shape, and getting worse by the day.

This is another example of the need to be aware that: what the media and politicians want the world population to believe, is usually far from the truth.

Which brings us to.... announce a new document (1) that we have issued exposing the cover up of seismic activity in the Yellowstone area.

The CONCLUSION at the end of the new document reads:

In the document (2) where we presented the steady increase of worldwide seismic activity, we stated:

Seismic activity is accurately recorded worldwide and routinely reported by the appropriate governmental agencies.  The media controllers do not think that "anyone out there" is capable of discerning a conclusive pattern.
Obviously that may have been true in 2002 but, as the ample data presented in this Study shows: the only information that one can be sure of - at least right now - is the raw readings of the seismographs since in the official pages appear only what "The Masters" wish to be known by those who visit those pages.
The new document may be too technical for some, but the results of the study will be obvious to all without having to get into to the technical details.

Posted on July 1st and 2nd, 2011

We wish to...

  ....remind you that
.... the First Friday of the Month and the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus this year coincide on July 1st

and that the First Saturday of the Month and the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary this year coincide on July 2nd

and let you know that..... as important as the post of June 30th (1) is for the well being of souls, it yielded the lowest number of visits that this page has had for quite some time.

Sadly enough, we are not surprised since Denial reigns supreme.

(1) FYI&R Posts for Second Half of June 2011


(1) If you are a new visitor, you may get the idea (from what you may read on this page) that we are part of what is known as the "liberal movement" within Catholicism. We strongly suggest that you first review our positions regarding the Pristine Catholic Faith (we said "Faith" and not "Church Administration),  RC Church Administration, Only Possible Changes Within the RCC Allowed by God and Our Function.

(2) If you prefer to evaluate positions using the "liberal", "moderate" and "conservative" labels, we would fall in the "practicing conservative" group, without the fanaticism which most "talking conservatives" exhibit. The difference between "practicing conservative" and "talking conservative" is that the first strives to live what Jesus Christ taught, while the second one, the "talking conservative", just talks about the faith and practices just enough for others to see.

(3) In an effort to keep our readers informed in the areas that matter most as we approach the End of These Times and better utilize the limited time available to us we will post what used to beposted on Did you know that...?Private Forum, Public Forum Part II and Points to Ponder About on this one single page - FYI&R
