Q. I am afraid that hurricane
Katrina IS ONLY THE BEGINNING. Is it not amazing that we speak
about the severity of natural disasters in terms
of DOLLARS, and not human lives??
Our ability to help ourselves and protect ourselves is strained beyond
our ability to keep up. Our troops are deployed overseas when
they are SO needed here right now, our economy is so strained with debt
that it will not support another major disaster, (the U.S. has asked
for overseas help... can you EVER remember us doing that in the
past??), and leaders of foreign countries using the disaster to further
undermine us politically...
New Orleans and the Gulf Coast was stabbed, deeply. It was as if
they bled for 24 hours rejoicing at how they had yet again avoided
catastrophe, only to look down 24 hours later and see that they were
bleeding, and dying.
What will happen if we have ANOTHER major "natural disaster" this
year?? I TRULY believe that this is the start of a series
of events that will
eventually lead to our fall...
The enormity of THIS event is still unrealized. I agree with you that
this is somehow a form of "Mercy in Action", although it is very
difficult to see that right now.
Ask Noah's neighbors, ask the citizens of Sodom, Gomorra and
Capernaum. Chat with the residents of Jerusalem who witnessed that no
stone was left upon stone in their Holy Temple. Ask the dead of World War II.

I need to ask something of you. Can you please pray for my mother, I am
not sure if she is caught in a snare or if what is going on in
her life is somehow from God. I have read all you documents on
spiritual dysfunction and still can't figure this out. She has
given me her permission to ask you this, and we have both spoken to
priests about this and have gotten no real answer. She says she
will do whatever God Will's for her, whether she likes or dislikes the
We have always
had a most dysfunctional family. My step father is an abusive
alcoholic. He is not physically abusive anymore but was
previously, he is still verbally and emotionally
abusive to not only her but to all. They have stayed married almost 40
years although they lead separate lives. He remains in the
basement drinking himself to death. In this time my mother has
tried to become holy and lead a good life. She prays the Rosary
and many chaplets numerous times a day. She goes to confession
and mass weekly. My sister is just like her father, and I believe she
is what you called 'alcoholic behaving individual' because she doesn't
drink, but is very controlling and selfish. I don't say this lightly. I
have never met anyone so self centered as she is.
She is married to a wonderful man, Cyril, who
has always adored her and did anything and all she asked. She doesn't
allow him to speak to his family or ours unless she says and when
she says. She has never loved him and only married him for
security. She even threw him out a few years back for a few years to
have a fling with another man and when he dumped her for another
woman she took Cyril back. During the two years separation, he
relied on my mother for moral support and they developed a deep
About a year ago, two different men tried to
develop a relationship with my mother. She easily turned them down. She
was content with her life, and didn't feel lonely because she felt
close to the Lord, and was close to all of us, except this one
Cyril announced to my mother that he was in love with her and not
my sister. My mother initially laughed at this, and thought he was just
transferring his feelings for my sister, and seeing in her who he
wished my sister was. He kept on persisting and has helped my mother in
many situations. Both financially, physically and emotionally and after
not being loved for so many years she has now fallen in love with him.
This was not a sexual
relationship at all, but I believe it has now
I am explaining this all to you because I
want you to realize my mother tried very hard not to let this
happen. She would call me every night and I would talk with her and try
to help her to have strength not to do this. I was so horrified
about this situation, I couldn't even bring myself to tell anyone. I
just kept praying for all of them. In the beginning of this my
mother's prayer life started to falter. It was easy to advise her about
this. She realized how bad that was letting her prayer life falter and
turned back to God and begged for an answer on how to handle this.
She visits a shrine to the Blessed Mother
a few times a week and asks for help and to let her know what to do.
She also confesses this week after week and gets no real answer
from the priests, other than if she has sex it is wrong.
She teeters back and forth as to whether this is
right and wrong. She believes she was very happy being alone and that
this couldn't have happened unless God allowed it. I also think that
but perhaps more that, that this is some sort of test.
Neither of us are sure, and so since we have gotten no clear answer or
help from any of the priests we have talked to, I asked her if it would
be ok to write to you and ask for your advice and prayers. She agreed
that you are very close to God and that whatever you advise, she
With much love, and hope for blessings, and peace, to you and yours.
A. As we pointed out in our recent document
About Sin, the
seriousness of a sin can be measured by the level of
damage it inflicts in God's Creation. Using this gage, the situation
you have brought to our attention is only second to engaging in sexual
one's own child.
Yet, God's Goodness and Mercy shines
through since both your mother and you sense that this is wrong,
regardless of the humanly justifiable conditions which brought this
situation about. Your family must be very special to God since satan
only attacks so brutally those who are truly special in the Eyes of God.
So that you may realize how damaging to God's Creation this situation
is, even if your sister and step father would die, leaving Cyril and
your mother free to marry somebody else, they could not marry each
other nor sustain a romantic/sexual relationship without causing
damages in God's Creation. (*)
Therefore, as painful as it may be in the short term
relationship must come to an end at once. It would be best that you
mother and Cyril do not even cross paths again to avoid pain or, worse,
a relapse. We realize that there are grandchildren involved,
nonetheless, if it requires that your mother do not see her
grandchildren for several years to insure a clean cut with Cyril the
children's well being, so be it.
Have her and him offer this pain for the conversion of the whole
family, which, from your other correspondence and your own
acknowledgment is very dysfunctional, yet Graced with this self
awareness which is fundamental to any and all remedies; an awareness
that few have.
It is obvious that your step father and your sister are the two points
of "spiritual infection"
in your family and through them satan is
coming in and destroying all.
Thus offer any suffering that God may allow upon you for
the following intention: For the Love of Jesus, the reparation of the
offenses committed by your sister and step father against the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and for their conversion. Ask any member of
the family that is willing to do so, to join with you in this offering.
The wording is tailor made for your family situation, but is based on
the theology set forth in our document about Mankind's Participation in
Its Own Redemption
Remain steadfast and
and know that there is nothing impossible
for God - He will never test anyone in such severe manner unless He had
some very special plans for the future of the individual being tested.
Remember, He loves your family very much - otherwise He would not have
moved you so clearly to seek help.
God does not judge man based on his
level of sanctity but
on how hard that individual has truly tried
to sanctify him/herself.
You may be assured of our
knowledge/awareness about these damages that we speak about are beyond
human understanding and certainly the official teachings of any
religion, thus, their reality is very concrete for us.

Q. I know it is often said, "For
those who have eyes to see and ears to hear". I am ashamed to
admit that I can't always "see or hear" what is meant to be obvious.
A. We thank this particular writer who has

Even to those who have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear, God unveils the
information only to the extent that particular soul is able to process
it - spiritually and psychologically. That is - not everything will be
clear at one time for all.
Each one of us is in a very unique
journey with, and to, God, thus, just like a life saving antibiotic can
kill if given in a dosage greater than the individual can accept, an
overdose of Divine Light would totally overwhelm and harm a soul who what

he/she must - all is
working in perfect order

years ago I took my wife to have an abortion. I begged her not
to go through the procedure, but to bring the fetus to full-term, all

A. Your question reminds of the
Biblical passage found in Luke 20 : 22.
Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
do you ask us? If you "...mentioned this event to a good
priest at the time during a
visit to Reconciliation" then that remains between the two of
you or is it that you consider us above that "good priest"?
Nonetheless, we recommend you to review our document on the avoidance
of doctrinal errors.
[Published on August 12th - 2005]
Q. I have
outlined below my own attempts to understand the recent disaster in the
Indian Ocean and would be grateful for your comments in this and also
your response to the questions I have posed below.
In trying to understand the reasoning behind such a striking and tragic
event such as the recent Tsunami disaster, even when you explain as you
do why God allows such suffering, it still seems that we are missing
large amounts of information as to the “Spiritual” requirements for
such an event.
All through the Bible it is clear that everything we do has a spiritual
effect in addition to whatever effect we cause in the material world.
One example comes from Exodus 20: 24-26, “An altar of earth you shall make for me,
and upon it you shall sacrifice your sheep and your oxen. In whatever
place I choose for the remembrance of my name I will come to you and
bless you. If you make an alter of stone for me, do not build it
of cut stone, for by putting a tool to it you desecrate it”.
It seems therefore that the activity of mankind upon the face of the
earth can have a spiritually dysfunctional effect on nature
itself. Assuming that nature itself conforms absolutely to the
will of God since it follows the Laws given to it by God for it's own
existence without any intervention of free will, any act of Mankind
which is sinful to any degree i.e. departs from God's “active” will,
causes a disturbance.
A. Your questions are many, yet important;
therefore, we will address them in small segments like the one above.
If we were forced by circumstances to
answer all of the above with one single word - the word would be "Yes".
However, we will qualify that single word.
Firstly, Exodus 20: 24-26 is specifically addressing the construction
of an altar. In addition, some Biblical translations speak of "tools"
ones speak of "iron". The issue may be the "iron" as opposed to
"tools" in general, as you may be able to discern from what we discuss
Secondly, that does not mean that all modifications made by man on
materials found in nature are desecrating nature. We refer you to the
instructions God gave Moses on how to build the Ark of the Covenant
[Exodus 25, 26 and 27], the tent to contain it, the design of the
priestly vestments [Exodus 28] , etc., etc.
However, withholding any and all explanations about the "why" of this
statement: The utilization of an iron
in shaping a stone for an altar may make sense to m de P.
You state: "It
seems therefore that the activity of mankind
upon the face of the earth can have a spiritually dysfunctional effect
on nature itself."
The answer is: "Yes, depending on the activity." God is perfect Love
and Perfect Harmony. When we
act in a manner that lacks harmony (which is all that is not done in
"Good Will" which, in turn may be explained as all that is done "in the
Spirit of Goodness and Love - which is the Spirit of God"), we wreak
around us which, like with the physical law that "every action causes a
reaction", will trigger a mechanism that will seek to restore the
You may graphically get a better idea of this mechanism if you
study the document The
Spiritual World and How it Influences Our
As you may readily see, all of the above would be rather difficult to
explain even to, and be understood by, some of the more enlightened
Faithful - thus it is better to teach to simply seek an intimate union
with God because, as
that is slowly achieved, non harmonious behavior automatically begins
disappear from our lives. Therefore, let us strive to "Be you therefore perfect, as also your
Heavenly Father is perfect." [Matthew 5:48]
One word of caution for those who may
miss the powerful message that we are delivering through quoting
Matthew 5:48: Although some of the terms utilized in the above response
may have a New Age sound, be assured that our answer could not be
further from such movement as we have amply illustrated

you please talk a little about fasting.
Growing up, we only gave up meat on Fridays for Lent, which I
understand is called abstinence. I never learned anything about
fasting from family, church or Catholic school.
I know that the Bible says don't let people know you are fasting or
taking any penance, and that, I understand.
I looked on the on-line Catholic Encyclopedia and assorted other web
sites, but I am confused about what is allowed. Some sites say
only bread and water, beverages. Others say a mid-day meal.
Do you fast, and do you know what is pleasing to God as a fast? I
pray a little every day, it is small in comparison to the hours in the
day, I know. I try to work on more as I am able. I was
thinking of fasting to supplement my prayers but I need better
Thank you, as always, for your time and effort. You are leading
even some pretty bad sinners back to God, bit by bit, be assured.

A. Fasting is one of those misunderstood
"tools" to cooperate with God in the redemption of mankind.
"Misunderstood" because it has also been used to manipulate the
fasting is to give up, for a holy purpose - but NOT to bargain with God
- any little "flesh
pleasure". Of course - when we say "flesh" all have been carefully
conditioned to only think of "sex" - wrong! Flesh pleasure is a
associated with the human condition - body related as opposed to soul
related - yes, it includes sexual pleasure but not to the exclusion of
It is always
good to have some set fasting program to avoid, through our involvement
in the world, abandoning it at the first opportunity. We shall give you
an example - as just that - an example - of what m de P has done over
the years. Then, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, each one should
adjust it to his/her individual circumstances. Always keeping in mind
satan is lurking around to utilize our desire to serve God to harm
the late eighties m de P began to fast on water, bread and black coffee
on Wednesdays and Fridays, while keeping a full schedule of work and
liturgical related schedule. For this full work and liturgical related
schedule [spanning from 6:30 AM to sometimes Midnight] is where
the black coffee came in - through a mechanism which we will not go
into now, black coffee increases the utilization of body stored sugars
and fat as fuel to keep the body going at full work load with a
substantial reduction of food intake.
Throughout the rest of the week,
at random, he would give up little pleasures here and there with the
intention: "For love of you, Jesus,
in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart
of Mary and the conversion of poor sinners."
A chocolate ice
here, a bag of peanuts there, eat something that he disliked, replace a
very tasty dinner with a boiled potatoes and can of tuna dinner,
skip sugar in coffee, walk instead of drive, do something that has been
delayed because it was unpleasant, etc.
In the last two to three years, some adjustments had to be made because
of drop of metabolic efficiency with the years going by. Now on
Wednesdays and Fridays he has something very simple to eat in the
evenings, however, this is loosely exchanged throughout those two days
and the rest of the week with other fasting or equivalent sacrifices.
For example, he may have been waiting to go to a certain place because
they serve his favorite "this" or "that". Providence
has it that he eventually gets there, then, once there, he will pass on
was that he wanted so much from there.
Warnings about satan tricks:
One day, back in the
eighties, m de P decided that if bread and water and black
coffee constituted good fasting, he was going to do better and just
take water and keep
the full schedule of responsibilities. On the fourth of fifth time, at
about 9 PM his heart went into fibrillation. He did not know what was
wrong or what to do... but God did. He was immediately moved to locate
fructose in the kitchen, dissolved a teaspoon in a glass water and
drank it. Shortly the heart returned to its normal and harmonious
rhythm. Lesson learned! Back to bread, water and black coffee!
(2) Fast two days and eat
poorly the rest of the week - even when the
food was available (which was not always the case) - then keep a
backbreaking physical schedule (between 1992 and 1996 he walked a
little under 10,000 miles). Eventually the body, quite logically,
starts to break down.
Perhaps the above will give the Faithful an
idea of what fasting is all about and he/she can work out a suitable
program to assist God in
the redemption of mankind
One consideration that is most important when we desire to offer God
of sacrifice, is what God really wants above all. He told
first through the prophet Isaiah
, then in person, for Jesus said:
is not the healthy who need the doctor, but the sick. Go and learn the
meaning of the words: Mercy
is what pleases me, not sacrifice. And indeed I came to call not
the upright, but sinners." [Matthew 9:12-13]
Your closing words Glorify God, Whom we
strive to serve. Just think
what the world would be like today if those who were entrusted to bring
the flock back home had fulfilled their Divinely appointed task instead
self promoting themselves as the Temple Masters of Jesus' time.
From Initials Withheld
August 3rd - 2005]
We had issued a mailing to a group of devotees of the Tridentine Mass
wherein it was stated that all the ills of the Roman Catholic Church
cannot be blamed on the suppression of the Tridentine Mass and the
subsequent introduction of the Novus Ordo Mass. After all, nearly a
thousand years ago Our Lord requested to Francis of Assisi to repair
His Church which was already in shambles. Following is the reduced
version of one of the recipients wrote back.
claim that the Latin mass or pre vatican II won't fix anything. You
claim that by Mary coming in 1917 that it was bad then. You are
correct, however it wasn't as bad as all THIS.
She has appeared down through the history of the Church. It all did not
happen over night. The Blessed Mother has seen it building to this
point. She was attempting a warning. Yes I know about opus dei. I could
careless about it. Yes if they are the pied piper I wont follow them
either. Irreverence at mass is at a all time high. I want the reverence
that I used to know put back.
Not the screaming kids( I have six by the way), I want music that lifts
my heart to God, Not condemning the old lady who is so bad at singing
it makes one cringe, I am tired of men - priest asking me to feed the
faithful when I don't have enough energy to feed my own kids. Get up
you priest and do your job.
I want all the symbolism put back. I want the tradition put back. Why
did 'nt we stop them in the 60's? We believed in our clergy. We
BELIEVED in the safety of God, and Jesus did hold the terror back.
Do I believe that the Latin mass will fix things? I have no idea, but I
know it cant be worse than what we are experiencing now. I think the
has more reverence. I was there. I lived it. I saw what the nuns and
priest did and are doing.
No sir you are spouting words to take our mind off of the mass. I will
never make that mistake again. My mind and soul are with my Lord. I
will never follow the pied piper again. Why is it (latin mass) fought
so hard? Because the key to good order is doing things as we are told
and not changing them for the whims of MEN and feminists. I am praying
for all. I have done what Mary asked me to do and I will trust that in
the END She will be the Winner.
A. Trying to reach to the core of your
concern we have concluded that "the bottom line" of your
complaint is: "Irreverence
at mass is at a all time high. I want the reverence that I used to know
put back." and "I want all the
symbolism put back. I want the tradition put back."
We could not agree
with you more. In many places the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass has become
a Six Ring Circus wherein even some "priests" dare to change the Creed,
the Eucharistic Prayers and whatever else they feel like changing.
Our point is that the problem was
not the absence of the Tridentine Mass, the problem is that the
Faith was built on sandy foundations and when the tide of evil came all
began to crumble - Clergy and Laity.
Since you brought up the Marian Apparitions, we want to remind you of
part of the statements of Our Lady of La Salette (1) ca. 1846 (now being
priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by
their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the
celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their
love of honors and pleasures, the priests have become cesspools of
impurity. Yes, the priests are asking for vengeance, and vengeance is
hanging over their heads. Woe to the priests and to those dedicated to
God who by their unfaithfulness and their wicked lives are crucifying
my son again! The sins of those dedicated to God cry out towards Heaven
and call for vengeance, and now vengeance is at their door, for there
is no one left to beg mercy and forgiveness for the people. There are
no more generous souls, there is no one left worthy of offering a
stainless sacrifice to the Eternal God for the sake of the world.
""The seasons will be altered, the earth will produce nothing but bad
fruit, the stars will lose their regular motion, the moon will only
reflect a faint reddish glow. Water and fire will give the earth's
globe convulsions and terrible earthquakes which will swallow up
mountains, cities.... Rome
will lose the faith and become the seat of
the Antichrist. "
The above was
delivered by Mary 120 years
before the Novus Ordo Mass!
Now, back to the irreverence and lack of symbolism.... One problem the
Faithful has, from our perspective, is their liturgical provincialism -
they gage that what is going on in their little local Parish as what is
going on the Universal Church. Wrong!
Most Novus Ordo Mass we have attended - and served in - were reverent
and full of symbolism. At a time m de P used to participate every
Sunday in a Novus Ordo Mass - all
in Latin - with the music being strictly Gregorian Chants
rendered by an all male choir - Holiness and silence could be cut with
a knife in spite of the many children present.
In many others, where they have been conducted in English, Portuguese,
Spanish, Italian, French, etc. we also found reverence and holiness.
One of the holiest Masses m de P ever participated in was a Novus Order
Mass offered by the priests leading a group from the Czech Republic who
traveled through Europe for days in a non A/C bus to honor Our Lady of
Fátima. m de P did not understand a word they spoke, but true
Holiness permeated the chapel in a totally supernatural manner.
M de P always made a point to avoid Masses at any Parish where the Mass
resembled a Texas Hoe Down or where, while the priests sat comfortably,
the laity, may times in low cut skin-tight dresses, seemed to be
performing most of the duties which should have been conducted by the
priests or deacons.
On the other hand, the atmosphere during certain Masses offered
whether at the Monastery of Jasna Gora (Poland), where the famous icon
of Our Lady of Czestochowa is kept, or the Basilica of St. Peter (2) or the prophetic
Basilica of St. John Lateran (3),
or the Sanctuary of Lourdes - is also that of the Six Ring
Circus, while in others, for example, at the Lourdes Grotto (outdoors)
on an icy and rainy 25th of March mass at 6:30 A.M. Holiness pervaded
everywhere - yet it WAS NOT a Tridentine Mass.
We hope and pray that we have made our point clear for your benefit and
that of those who also long for the Tridentine Mass.
However, a word of caution is in order: If your Faith (4) rests on the Tridentine
Mass you may want to reevaluate that Faith because the Tridentine Mass
- any Mass - is just a vehicle for man to reach God and when a Mass
format becomes an end to itself, we have fallen into idolatry (5) disguised as holiness
