Letters/Questions - Addressed on May 2006
[Published on May 28th - Alternate Day of celebration of the Ascension of Our Lord]
"Where was God in those days? Why was he silent? How could he permit this endless slaughter, this triumph of evil?"Joseph Ratzinger
A. How dare you! How dare you blaspheme against God before the whole world! Where was God? Since 1846 He has been trying to get the leaders of the Church He founded to heed Him lest horrors upon horrors would befall humanity. Those whom you claim to be your predecessors failed miserably. God then tried again in starting in 1917 in Fátima. Giving the Church Administrators ample time and awesome signs to prevent the preventable - World War III. Once again God was ignored and you dare to ask "Where was God?"
We will answer that question in a way that will be well understood very soon. He was in the same place He will be when He allows the Passion, Crucifixion and Death of the Mystical Body of Christ.
God, in the Person of the Father, placed man in charge of His Creation. God, in the Person of Jesus, came to explain why the world was not functioning in the manner He intended and to establish an organization that would assist His people in coming back to Him as the prodigal son did. God, in the Person of the Holy Spirit was sent to help us along the way.
You, and those whom you claim to be your predecessors, made a business of the Word of God and have literally pushed mankind to the edge of the abyss. Thus, God, left with no other option will allow the Passion, Crucifixion and Death of the Mystical Body of Christ so that it may Resurrect and be Pure and Holy as He intended it to be.
Your blasphemous words were the last straw that God needed to fulfill the Pronouncement miguel de Portugal delivered, in His Holy Name, to The Vatican at mid morning of December 31, 2000, standing in St. Peter's Square facing the Vatican.
May God have Mercy on the innocent who, deceived by wolves dressed as sheep, continue their march to the slaughterhouse. To them we say - Take refuge in the fundamentals of the Catholic Faith - it is not the Faith that is at fault, it has been the Administrators of that Faith who have become the representation of what John the Evangelist clearly warned us against in Chapter 17, verses 1-5 of the Book of Revelations.
You and the Roman Catholic Church Administrators have been amply warned. The words of Matthew 24: 15-22 say it all.
It is ironic that today, 66 years ago, after eighteen days of ceaseless German bombardment, Belgium surrendered unconditionally to Nazi Germany; the same Belgium where, decades later, the Europe that rose from the ashes the Roman Catholic Church Administrators brought upon them, has now its headquarters.

Do you agree too that the order, since it is in fact a cult of personality, should now, for the good of the Church, be allowed to wither on the vine, in spite of its enormous money-making facility?
A. We certainly agree that a tremendous service was done to the Church by sanctioning Marcial Maciel for the abuses committed using God as a shield to cover up his complete operation.
If this had not been the result of a "score settlement" between Opus Dei and the Legionaries of Christ, we would have expected next to see the de-canonization of the founder of another cult of personality sect within the Church. After all, it was the same Pope, H.H. John Paul II, who "sang the praises" of Marcial Maciel; therefore, it can be logically assumed that John Paul II was as confused and misled with the Opus Dei founder as he was with the Legionaries of Christ founder.
Did it ever occur to him (1) that, if the Escrivites were so loyal to the Church, what was the necessity to establish a parallel Church called a Personal Prelature away from the reach from many fine Bishops? [No, do not be surprised that we say "many fine Bishops"; there are still a few fine prelates who are swimming against the current and need every possible prayerful assistance from the true remnant so that they can shore up the little Faith left amongst the Faithful.]
We think that a masterful follow up, a follow up that would really place him amongst the immemorial of the Roman Church, Benedict XVI should:
(b) "Invite" Cardinal Law and Cardinal Egan "to a reserved life of prayer and penance, renouncing every public ministry" for their role in covering up abusive priests - a transgression which in the Eyes of God is worse than the already grave transgression of the abusers for it spreads it.
(c) Remove Jose María Escrivá from the altars and incorporate the Opus Dei Prelature within the mainstream of the Church subject to the local ordinaries (Bishops). This will make reparation before God what the Church Administration did to Joan of Arc.
(1) We know how he was manipulated so that it would be perfectly loyal to him; however, he should have not fallen for that. Nonetheless, that is God's Business and not ours - thanks be to God!
If their Absolution is valid, and Eucharist is valid, then does a Roman Catholic, who is divorced and placing his faith in Jesus Christ rather than a Pope err in his decision?
A. Since the question centers around a divorce issue, what we have stated about the indissolubility of a valid Sacramental Marriage stands - Rome or no Rome, Catholic or not! It is a Christ related issue, that is, a Christian issue, not a Roman Catholic issue.
We suggest that an objective review be made of the marriage in question. If matrimony was really invalid, Sacramentally speaking, then, of course, the individual would not err in his decision.
We suggest that two or three "third parties" independent form the parties involved in this matter look into the validity, or the lack of it, utilizing what we have presented in our document on matrimony.
Your sincere desire to set things right is already working in your favor.
A. For the "doubting Tohomasses" out there: (1) The Da Vinci Code film premiered in Portugal one day earlier than in most (if not all) of the world; (2) How did AP get in his question so fast? - Because AP accompanied m de P to view the film. With these human aspects dealt with, we shall attempt to respond to all the APs in the world.
The only thing that was noticed not to be coherent with the reality that we are aware of - natural and supernatural - was the Mary Magdalene/wife of Jesus/Blood Line story - which we know, not believe, but know, not to be true. The rest? What can we say? It is "Business as usual" - whether is The Godfather III or Robert Philip Hansen or William E. Colby, the bombing of the PRC Embassy in Belgrade, the Trajectory of H.H. John Paul II, etc.
About Silas, the mad monk... or was it the "over zealous" monk? Of course, the Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei does not have monks but.... as the saying goes "The habit does not make the monk" - May those who have Eyes, See and Ears, Hear.
The movie indeed is a good Public Relations effort for the benefit of Opus Dei because what is presented about them appears to be so far off from any imaginable reality that it will be easily discounted by the general public. While, on the other hand, the blood line of a Jesus' descendant is presented in a very, very believable manner, which, in turn, is a perfect background set up for the presentation of the False Christ. Clever, isn't it?
Comments from the typical "movie goer" perspective: (1) Complicated plot with many surprises; but (2) Not a "cliff hanger" at all; thus (3) Felt that it was dragging on and on; and (4) Silas will be a hit with the sado/masochist faction of the gay community. He may even become the "Poster Boy" of S&M.
Additional documents that we suggest reviewing as they relate, directly or indirectly, to Brown's story:
Truth about the aberrant behavior of some Popes.

How far will the Vatican go to increase and maintain power? This far....
Given your favorable position towards Bill Clinton (a pro death President) and your unfavorable position on George Bush (a pro life President) you might want to take a few minuets and review what was going on behind the scenes with the Clintons and abortion. Click on the following site: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=50191
Please let me know what you think if you have time.
A. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to illustrate to our readership one definition of what could be a case of the opposite of having Eyes to See and Ears to Hear.
You claim that we are favorable to Clinton - "a pro death President" and unfavorable to Bush - " a pro life President" - which is telling us that we endorse a "pro death President".
First of all, kindly review the fifty six documents that we have published stating our abhorrence of abortion under any circumstances.
No, Mr. K., we will not waste our valuable time reading anything that World Net Daily publishes - much less when it is referred to us in the manner that you have.
If you wish to be coherent in your behavior and thinking - erroneous as it may be - you may wish to write a posthumous letter to H.H. John Paul II accusing him of being "a commie" since he publicly stated - and we received a personal letter from the editor of L'Osservatore Romano confirming it - that "communism had some good elements in it".
Ronald L. Conte Jr. < e d i t o r 4 4 @ c a t h o l i c p l a n e t . c o m >
A. We thought that we'd bring to the attention of the Faithful a confirmed case of what Spiritual Blindness and Deafness means. It is not worth our time discussing the "humble and pious opinion" of Mr. Conte, but it is certainly worth our time sharing this superb example of spiritual disorientation with our readers.
Let us pray for him so that his suffering is reduced as Divine Justice is dispensed and Prophecy fulfilled. In the meantime, we recommend to him and "Birds of the same feather" to review Gamaliel's advice to the council, and all the ancients of the children of Israel that is found the Chapter 5 of the Acts of the Apostles:
(Two years ago) I do not attend Church and do not know where I belong, but I believe with all my heart and soul that the only safe course during the upcoming events is the path following God. I am listening and watching, as the events are nearer than most believe.
(Two days ago) It seems that God had a sequence of plans in effect for when I finally asked for help. The reason that I waited so long, is that I thought that I could overcome my problems by myself... it proved to be more than I could deal with alone.
(One month ago) God truly is great. It has been several years since I first stumbled on to your site, and only now am I beginning to really grasp what you have been sharing. I have been re-reading some of your articles, and I find things there that I did not, or perhaps more accurately, was not ready to understand before. I have said this before, but thank you (and thank God) for the work you all do.
A. The above should be viewed as perfect examples to one and all that "Having Eyes to See and Ears to Hear" do not guarantee that we can see and hear what we must and understand it in accordance to the Will of God. This additional, and most needed, Grace comes as we till the soil so that the seed dropped in it germinates well, the roots grow deep and the plant healthy and strong.
How do we till the soil? Through persistent prayer - formal and free form. This is why organized religion exists and why satan saw to it that it became synonymous with evil, abuse, lies, etc. As most should have noticed, we do not cease to point out the outrages of, for example, the Roman Catholic Church Administration while upholding the Faith in the highest position possible.
Yes, there have been men who stained, not occupied, but outright stained, the Chair of Peter BUT there have been others who, through the power of God, managed to keep the basic tenets of the Faith pure and holy so that they would reach us now - when we need the the most!
We must try first, enlisting God, to overcome our problems when they are not too grave; however, when they are, satan would have such a good hold on that soul that he renders every effort of that soul to rise above its misery, null and void.
This is why we must have: (1) A concrete prayer - formal and free form - program in place; and (2) Have someone whom we trust to serve as "sounding board" for us. Ideally, the Sacrament of Reconciliation would serve that purpose but, unless the confessor has been "worked over" with prayers before the session, he will not serve the purpose - most of them are more lost than the one seeking direction.
We have said that the Catholic Faith has the greatest amount of revealed truths in its Spiritual Treasury but this does not mean that an individual cannot "till the soil" properly within another organized religion framework.
We shall close with the following parable, which has nothing to do with agriculture!
[Matthew Chapter 13]
16 But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear. 17 For, amen, I say to you, many prophets and just men have desired to see the things that you see, and have not seen them, and to hear the things that you hear and have not heard them. 18 Hear you therefore the parable of the sower. 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, there cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart: this is he that received the seed by the way side. 20 And he that received the seed upon stony ground, is he that heareth the word, and immediately receiveth it with joy.
b. When you see a news item in the Internet and you feel that the writer of the article or the editor of the newspaper should know information which they are not aware of, drop him/her an e-mail with your comments and and reference to the particular document. That he/she may be a news writer or and editor does not mean that they know what is really going on. Usually, the news services have a "Contact Us" link or the name of the author may be "clicked on" for his/her e-mail address.
c. For printed Media you may wish to print a document and mail it to the author of the article in question with a brief note.
Employees have been instructed to remain silent about the orders coming down from Homeland Security, saying it is for national security reasons. Employees in both the LA and Houston areas have come forward saying they have been instructed to remain silent and not to distribute valuables from safety deposit boxes, including gold, silver and firearms in the case of a national emergency.
Without a doubt - such situation: "...not to distribute valuables from safety deposit boxes, including gold, silver and firearms in the case of a national emergency." will take place, even if they have not thought of it yet!
Very recent history taught the innocent how an "Emergency Situation" or an "Emergency Government" handles these matters.
After Fidel Castro had taken over in Cuba and the affluent classes, which had not left the country yet, realized that the political situation was serious, millions upon millions of pesos (in those days they were equivalent to the US dollar) found their way into flower beds, mattresses, vases, the proverbial shoe boxes and, yes, Safety Deposit boxes - very little was left deposited in bank accounts.
One "good" morning the population of that country woke up to the news that the paper currency had been reissued with different designs and had become legal tender immediately. Any cash you had could be taken to the banks to be exchanged for the new paper currency.... up to a maximum of 200 pesos!!! The top limit was much higher - it is said 10,000 pesos - only for those who had their money deposited in bank accounts.
We do not need to explain to you the results of such "surprise".
As the sayings go "Birds of a Feather fly together" and "God Creates them and the devil gets them together." Therefore....
Do not forget that there really was no Missile Crisis and that Castro was left out of the settlement; that in spite of the very successful efforts of Glado to clean out Communism in Europe and Central and South America, the Castro Regime, right by the gates of the US, continues "untouched"; that the assassinations of President Kennedy and Robert Kennedy have more to do with the 1962 Manchurian Candidate movie plot than with "run of the mill" deranged idealists; that Castro supported LBJ's candidacy to the Presidency of the US and that Gorbachev's book about the downfall of the Soviet Empire hit the bookstores within 90 days after his release from prison all the while while it seems that Castro has been earmarked to be the Biggest Patsy of modern times.
It is supposedly written down word for word from God to Mohammed, it (in my limited knowledge of the Koran) has been kept in the original language and therefore the copies available today are more 'accurate' than say a copy of the bible which it has been suggested through multiple translations is not an exact accurate record.
My question would be this: Can the Koran be taken as a direct dialogue between Mohammed and God? A lot of the language seems to be in the style of the Old Testament and my point would be that while 95% of the content of the Koran is compatible with Christianity certain aspects of it are clearly out of sync with Christianity. I'd be interested to know your opinion when your time permits.
We trust that said document will answer your question in full.
It is because of your kind encouragement back to faith that this was possible by any means. Thank you so very much for your service to God which has resulted in so many blessings to me and, I am sure, countless others.
Peace to you,
They are also a great source of encouragement because, regardless of any evil done past, present and future, by the Administrators of the Christian Faith, we wish to draw one and all to drink from the plentiful font of the Catholic Faith. It truly provides the "formula" to make the transition that the world is now making as painlessly as is humanly possible.
The knowledge and the know how generated by scientists, generally speaking, costs money and the companies who pay them are only interested in one end point from their research, and its not always for the common good of mankind; more to the point its the shareholders of these companies and their amazing desire and greed that the whole human race appears to suffer for.
All is not so bad though, I meet so many wonderful people in my work and so many who give so generously of their time to help others, it stops me from becoming too cynical!
God can take the most evil deed of man and use it as a golden opportunity to benefit his other children. The "textbook case" of this is the betrayal of Jesus by Judas Iscariot. The greatest betrayal since Eve's and second to none other, was turned into an opportunity - opportunity, not an automatic process - for man to find his way back to the Father. Judas certainly was not, nor will ever be, exonerated for such betrayal, yet many will benefit from it through the Infinite Mercy of God.
The cases which you cite are no different and should never cause us to become cynical. Those who look after the bodies and souls of their brethren cannot take into consideration what has caused the harm/suffering when treating the individual. A case in point is our position about homosexuality or any other state that may bring suffering to a brother or a sister. Should we not bring to bear the full power of the Good News to bring them consolation and hope?
This, of course, does not prevent us - to the extent we are able to and remaining time allows - to address the source, be it this or that, that brought harm upon our brethren.
For the record: You will never become too cynical; you have been vaccinated, not with a Tamiflu-like vaccine, but with the Holy Spirit of God.
Respectfully, it was my full understanding the church engaged in and practiced pedastry (pederasty) in its early years, at the very least.
With regards to your aforementioned article, it would seem that Catholic doctrine, at least pertaining to your quoted, No's 2389 on Pedophelia, and, 2356 on Rape is in direct conflict with itself in these early practices. However, given that the Church was knowledgeable, some argue fully culpable, in sexual abuse cases of late involving clergy, this would also seem to "fly in the face" of faith as dictated by doctrine.
There is no doubt that some in Church hierarchy were aiding and abetting this behavior in protecting and shuffling around guilty priests.
How can this be?
You are right - the Church Administration has contradicted itself so many times that we almost feel embarrassed in pointing them out as the easy-to-spot contradictions come into our scope. We have partially addressed this issue in our document titled "...Do and Observe... Whatsoever They Tell You, But Do Not Follow Their Example, For they preach but they do not practice.
As we have said many times - they (the Church Administration) are not even good at being bad! [As the American saying goes, spotting their incoherence: "It's like shooting fish in a barrel."]
Regarding the early record of their sexual misconduct, we invite you to review two new documents we have recently published regarding the Administration's past, and not so remote, moral record - The Truth About Some Popes and The Claim of Papal Infallibility.
That is, we do not disagree with your understanding. As a matter of fact, years ago we called to the attention of the key members of the press - worldwide - Matthew Parris's book "The Great Unfrocked - Two Thousand Years of Church Scandal" so that they would have a solid foundation upon which to report the current sexual abuses within the Roman Catholic Church.
