A. You stated: "...whatever it takes, God will get them to listen." That is indeed the case since "Pain is the megaphone that God uses for the deaf to hear" and, as we have stated many times, to minimize the suffering of the Elect (i.e. reduce "whatever it takes") is one of our functions. The faster the slumbering Elect wake up, the less they will suffer.
We take this opportunity to give more light to the referenced Gospel which will underscore the fact that "If God will not give one the Grace to see, it will not happen."
The parable in question [Lazarus and the rich man] is the only parable where the main character has a name - Lazarus. Now, let us highlight a specific quotation from said parable: "And he (Abraham) said to him (the dead rich man): If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they believe, if one rise again from the dead."
In spite of the astonishing miracle He had performed at the gates of Jerusalem, He was crucified because "... neither will they believe, if one rise again from the dead."
Perfect Divine coherence in the Holy Scriptures.
Thank you for the opportunity to Glorify God.

PS One day - when is too late - most will realize that when we encouraged prayer as "the only thing left to do" - we were also right.

A. Thank you for the opportunity to address this issue as well as for your prayers. We are neither Latin nor Greek scholars but - in general terms - we agree with your "church" word analysis.
Now - to the point. We have not prayed the Nicean Creed for some time because, as we may have written years ago, it is theologically incorrect. It denies the Trinity. On the other hand, the Apostles Creed is essentially flawless and that is the Creed we pray with only one small change.
Where it reads "I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints...." we have changed it to "I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Faith (2), the communion of saints....". Today's common usage dictates that when we say "Catholic Church" it basically means the "Roman Catholic Church Administration" and in them we certainly do not believe as we have made crystal clear.

In reference to your Points to Ponder posting (1) dated September 27th:
I have spent much time in my life following a few college and professional teams. This question may be pointless, since the hour is late, but, what's your recommendation for following amateur or professional squads?
A. In this situation like in most - religiosity included - the evil lurking is the "excess" and that can only be determined by the individual in question through an honest introspective evaluation. Practicing and/or following sports can be very rewarding and so can be a glass or two of wine with a meal.... now, a whole bottle.... that is another story.
A tasty pastry can be a treat, in excess it will lead to serious illnesses, etc., etc.
Thank you for the opportunity to clarify this point.
(1) The posting in question follows:
Since communism was intrinsically atheist, do you ever wonder what was used to replace religion so that the people would remain under the influence of some other "opium"?
Sports! and it spread far and wide. [Can't you hear satan cackling? he did it again and men fell for it!]

A. Before answering the questions What ever happened to the EENS dogma? Is that also in error? we had to look up what the EENS dogma was since we were not aware of such term. To say anything else, would be lying and that is not part of God's teachings although one would think otherwise from what we have witnessed for over 1600 years.
This is what we found out:
This expression comes from the writings of Saint Cyprian of Carthage, a bishop of the third century. The axiom is often used as short-hand for the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church which asserts that the Catholic Church is absolutely necessary for salvation. The theological basis for this doctrine is founded on the Catholic beliefs that (1) Jesus Christ personally established the Catholic Church, according to the Catholic interpretation of Matthew 16:18; and, (2) that the Church serves as the means by which the graces won by Christ are communicated to believers. (1)
We have fully addressed this issue in our document Dominus Iesus (2). However - to sum it up: There is indeed salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church!
What kind of god would place such condition on any of his creatures considering the track record of the Administration of said church? (3)
Would the Roman Catholic Church Administrators accept the liability then for the results of a failed Evangelization? (4) After all - the True and Living God is indeed all powerful and, just as Don Bosco's (5) Evangelization effort was such a roaring success that even the enemies of Rome wanted him to spread his work in anticlerical Italy, Rome could have done it if they would have not started serving mammon instead of the True and Living God when Constantine purchased (6) the Roman Church.
Therefore - It is to Rome's advantage to "spread the blame" rather than to assume it de facto as the embodiment of the only means to Salvation. They already have their hands full with trying to justify before the Throne of Judgment why they, through blatant inaction, were accessories (7) of the greatest holocaust humanity has ever endured - World War II.
Once again - let no one forget that we make a clear distinction between the Catholic Faith (8) and the Roman Catholic Church Administration. (9)
Let us not forget how that such a dichotomy is possible: Even satan must serve God and the True and Living God would not abandon His children at this very critical time in the history of Creation - thus He ensured that we had access to the supernatural assistance provided by the Holy Sacraments.

Thus, even if (for some of us) our earthly time is short, the promises will still be kept ... in the world to come. (Some, of course, will see many of the promises realized while they are still on earth.)
(1) Divine Instructions
A. That is exactly the way it is. The moment we undergo a conversion of heart (and nourish it through prayer and striving to live His Word) our Eternal Life actually starts in the flesh.
From that point on it is a continuing spiritual ascendance that continues after we shed the body. After having entered Eternal Life while in in Time, the shedding of the body is just another transition in our journey to the Light - God.
Death of the body is "The End" for those who have not entered Eternal Life while in it. Even if that conversion is a fraction of a second before death - it will be considered as having entered Eternal Life while in Time. That is exactly what Jesus meant via the parable in Matthew 20: 1-15
From LP @ USA - Published on September 19th, 2007
A. Thank you for writing and offering those suggestions. Your letter opens the door to our explaining matters that have been left unsaid up to now.
As most have noticed - we have a mantra like statement: "Mankind cannot stop what is going to take place, however, the power to minimize the suffering is in our hands."
We have also explained in simple intellectual and Biblical terms the function of The M+G+R Foundation (1) and of miguel de Portugal (m de P) (2), respectively. We will do it now in a parable form hoping that it would be clearer - then we will address your suggestions.
miguel de Portugal could be seen as a: Cheer Leader and Square Dance Caller with the script for both functions given to him by God. All the efforts (public and behind the scenes) are directed so that the above mantra like statement becomes more of a concrete reality.
Regarding specific dates....
Let us say that m de P knows when Step No. 1 and Step No. 17 (3) will take place - if things continue as they are. Let us say that, for example, whomever may know the date of the Miracle (4) (Step No. 7) has a date for such event that is beyond the date m de P is currently aware of for Step No. 17 (for this example we are assuming that God has not changed the revealed date for the Miracle because it will be used by His enemies (5) to better introduce the False Christ (6)). On the surface it may appear that one or the other has to be wrong because the Miracle obviously has to come before Step No. 17. The truth is that neither is conceptually wrong.
The surface appearance but it has nothing to do with the supernatural reality which we are about to share with you now.
m de P, because of his above illustrated function (Cheer Leader and Square Dance Caller) may know a current date in the Time Framework. The individual who is supposed to announce "X" days before the Miracle takes place knows the date for the Miracle in the Eternal Framework. Yet, they are at odds. Why?
As we have explained elsewhere - Mary - Who lives in Eternity - knew that Her requests would be ignored by the Church (7) and World War II would take place - yet, She requested that if "this" and "that" (8) was done, according to the given timetable, those horrors would not take place. Why?
Just as Her Son divested Himself of His Divinity as He assumed a human body, She divested Herself from Her knowledge of Eternity and was speaking to us within the Time Framework. (9) Why?
Divine Mercy demands than mankind is given the necessary warnings to avert what will take place so that he has the opportunity to affect the date and severity of the events that will unfold. We can witness that Divine methodology starting from the Book of Genesis all the way through the Book of Revelations. Do you think that God did not know that Eve was going to fall for satan's snare? (10)
Therefore - miguel de Portugal's function is not to reveal dates, his function is that by "Cheer Leading and Square Dance Calling" we can delay those dates that he may be aware of, within the Time Framework, or compress the time (11) between one Step and the next . Has he done it? Thanks be to God, he has had more than enough confirmation from God about the many date alterations and time span compression achieved - otherwise, how do you think he could have kept on going in this "desert" for sixteen years? For the donations? Ha! For the honor before man? Ha!
That most people do not believe him? That many claim that he is living a "Alternate Reality"?
Rest assured, he loses no sleep over that, although he sheds many tears as he sees that every single effort from God and Mary are rejected. Just as he can feel the indescribable joys from Heaven, he can feel how such persistent blindness causes Them suffering. We assure you, few have had an idea of true sorrow, which is, to be able to see/feel the results of rejecting the of Goodness of God and when the solicitude of Mary is turned into a selling-of-religious-items orgy. Whenever he mystically focuses in the early years of Fatima - as we have summarized elsewhere (8) - the result is always the same - tears of sorrow for Jesus and Mary for the grave offenses that They have endured as every one of their loving Fatima-related efforts was trampled upon.
Mankind will have an opportunity to feel that - and we assure you, many will not make it through the Warning (12); it will be that heart wrenching (13).
Now - back to the questions/suggestions posed by LP.
In addition of the non published behind the scenes warnings that we have issued - of which our unpublished files are brimming full - anyone could take a look at the sampling of those which we now have on line.
One final clarification - God forbids man to "read the future in detail" for the reasons and consequences which have also explained at length. (14)

From WS @ USA - Published on September 15th, 2007 [Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows]
I just wanted to send you an article of a friend of mine that was in the National Catholic Reporter in the early nineties - "A deeper clerical problem than sex - disbelief in life after death" by William J. Freburger. (1)
He has since passed away but when I read it at the time and read it again and again, it strikes at the root of today's “luke warmness” of my church and points to the struggle of the Church to keep the true message of Jesus, my Lord and Redeemer and the belief in the “communion of saints ...the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.”
A. Thank you for sharing the article. It actually prompted our recent posting (Sept. 14th) in the Points To Ponder (2) page.
As you can ascertain from that posting, the problem is even deeper than "disbelief in life after death" - the problem is no Faith at all. Anyone who truly believes in God must, by definition, believes in life after death since I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. [Matthew 22:32]
It is interesting to note that the date of the article is 1993 - long before the sexual abuse scandal broke out i the U.S. None of this, however, should surprise us for it was Jesus Who told Francis, at Assisi, in the 13th century to "repair His Church" . As the saying goes "If it ain't broken, don't fix it" so obviously the Church was already quite broken by then. (3)
The luke warmness has also been around for too long, and spread far too wide, due to the lack of faith of those who were entrusted to Evangelize the World. Don Bosco (4) reminded them that the "Jesus formula" still worked, even in the worse of circumstances, but they did not want to hear it.
As we have said (yelled from the top of cyberspace) it was in the hands of the believers (5) to turn the the ship around - now, all we can hope to do is to minimize the suffering that God will allow upon the world - as a last resort - to help the deaf hear (6) !
Once again, thank you for writing.
Many continued Blessings!
The M+G+R Foundation
P.S. Perhaps you can give one step in that direction telling anyone who is willing to hear it that it is OUR Faith - and not only yours, and OUR Lord - and not only yours. In the Kingdom of God (7) there is no room for elitism... a message that somehow was lost in Escriva, just as he somehow lost the rest of the Good News. (8)

Please forgive my ignorance, but did the papal excommunication of Scotland cause the loss of those souls, as said by SB from USA on Public Forum II of 1 September (1)?
I would think not, so please forgive me and instruct me.
A. The only action that would need our forgiveness is the thought of "knowing it all". Your question/concern is most valid and to answer valid questions regarding the Faith and other relevant supernatural matters is part of our function. (2)
The answer to your question is "No".
That was precisely the point being illustrated by the writer. If a man - any man - has no power to save our condemn a soul, as we have explained before (3), much less a whole nation by men steeped in sin (4). To pretend so, as the Vatican does (5), is against the core teachings of Christianity (6) which they pretend to uphold. Such pretensions (7) is what caused the Evangelization entrusted to them to fail so miserably.
The pristine Catholic Faith (8) reached us not because of them but in spite of them and for the Glory of God Almighty Who is not about to abandon His Elect (9) at the most difficult time since the times described in the Book of Genesis (10).
May God have Mercy on them! (11) - If there is one group of human beings who needs Mercy is the leaders of organized religion with the Roman Administrators (12) at the lead.

Researchers want to create hybrid embryos by merging human cells with animal eggs, in the hope they will be able to extract valuable embryonic stem cells from them. The cells form the basic building blocks of the body and are expected to pave the way for revolutionary therapies for diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and even spinal cord injuries."
The LORD said, "Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them." [Gen 11:6]
How many souls will be swept up and lost to the enticement of "progress" at the expense of our growing alienation from God. I wonder how far God will allow this to go on.
A. Fortunately, not very long (1).
Unfortunately many people think that we are being pessimistic (2) and others think that we are living an alternative reality.
If we had existed on or about 1929 (3) we would have also spoken up then as loud and as clear (of course, it was not m de P's time yet). People would have said that we were pessimistic and others that we were living in an alternate reality.... until September 1, 1939.
By December 7th, 1941 they would have become convinced that the "alternate reality" was "reality" and that they were living a "denial reality" (4).
By the time Japan was "transfigured" on August 6th, 1945, it would have been too late. (5)
Fortunately - our September 1, 1939 to August 6th, 1945 equivalent period has been reduced to just one hour. [Rev. 18:10] Progress, we presume...

From GMcC @ Australia - Published on September 1st, 2007 [First Saturday of Reparation]
Thank you for this message(1). However I have never worked out the difference between FAITH and TRUST. Through common usage these terms appear to have become interchangeable.
How then do you define each of them.
Go with God.
A. The best way to illustrate the difference is utilizing a very concrete example.
Mary delivered a very clear and concise message in Fatima. A Message accompanied by an awesome Miracle that even the non believers had to acknowledge.
If the Roman Church Administrators had any Faith in God, they would have acted in a manner that the Trust placed upon them by the Faithful would have been warranted, since the blood letting of World War II would have been prevented. Instead, their lack of Faith proved to anyone who has Eyes to See and Ears to Hear that they were AND are not Trustworthy.
It is that simple.
(1) Message in question:
Wait to hear My Will and then obey. At all costs obey.
Do not fear. I am a wall of protection around you. See this. To see this with the eyes of faith is to cause it to manifest in the material.
Remember I long to work miracles, as when on earth I wrought them, but the same condition holds good. I cannot do many mighty works because of unbelief.
So only in response to your belief can I do miracle-works now.
We repeat - it is faith in God that is required and not faith in an institution! One should have trust in an institution but faith only in God!
"Faith" and "Trust" are very different and understanding this will greatly reduce the suffering of mankind.
In response to your communication (1) about the publication of Mother Teresa's letters against her wishes...
A. This is reminiscent of what happened with the late John Paul II private papers. He had asked that they be destroyed at his death, but Archbishop Stanislaw Dswisz, his personal secretary, violated John Paul's will and kept them "for posterity" and as potential relics. Without a doubt they will use them as a smoke screen to produce whatever document they wish to produce "in his name" to advance the agenda (2) for the manifestation of the False Christ.
It is all so transparent but they do not care - most of the Faithful chose to be (3) blind and deaf to the Truth for they have placed their Faith in men not in God. (4)

Even if that was the case (potential relics) - Why are they being published to a worldwide audience is she specifically requested they'd be destroyed?
