Russia...Will Battle America; Will Overrun Europe.

On September 14th, the Feast of the Holy Cross, Venerable Sister Elena Aiello will become Blessed Elena.

This almost unknown stigmastist is to Italy, what Marie Julie Jahenny is to France.

On August 22, 1960, less than a year before her death, Sister Elena was given the following message.
"Russia with her secret armies will battle America; will overrun Europe."

Venerable Elena was given the antidote to Europe being overrun in the same message.
"If the people do not recognize in these scourges (of nature) the warnings of Divine Mercy, and do not return to God with truly Christian living, another terrible war will come from the East to the West."

Two problems.
Firstly, do people recognize these scourges of nature as Divine Warnings?
Secondly, do people know what truly Christian living is anymore?

On Good Friday of 1961, Venerable Elena was told,
"Russia, spurred on by Satan, will seek to dominate the whole world and, by bloody revolutions, will propogate her false teachings throughout all the nations, especially in Italy."

Are we seeing a spate of "bloody revolutions"?

What are the false teachings?
The revolutionary spirit of Satan teaches that man can make paradise here on earth.

Marie Julie was told,  first there would be economic crises.
Next, there would be civil wars and bloody revolutions.
Then, Europe would be invaded by Russia.

Venerable Elena was told,
"Russia will march upon all the nations of Europe, particularly Italy, and will raise her flag over the dome of St. Peter's."

"Italy will be severely tried by a great revolution, and Rome will be purified in blood for its many sins, especially those of impurity."

"If we do not pray, Russia will march upon all of Europe, and particularly Italy, bringing much more ruin and havoc."

Is it time to rediscover what truly Christian living is?

The 100 Year Reign of Satan and the Illumination of Conscience.

Why do I feel so convinced that Satan's 100 year reign will end in 2017?
It is because of the things that happened in 1917, which could have been the beginning of Satan's reign!

In February 1917, the Russian Revolution began.
(On October 25, there was an insurrection in Petrograd, as a result of which the Bolsheviks took control.)

On 27 May 1917, the Pope promulgated the first formal Code of Canon Law.
A good thing on the face of it but Canon 1543 read,
 "If a commodity which is consumed by its first use be lent on the stipulation that it becomes the property of the borrower, who is bound to return to the lender not the thing itself, but its equivalent only, the lender may not receive any payment by reason of the loan itself."

This teaching was a continuation of the Church's unbroken history but a tragic 'however' was added,
"In the giving or lending of such a commodity, however, it is not in itself unlawful to make an arrangement for the recovery of interest at the rate allowed by the civil law, unless that rate is clearly excessive."

What had been unlawful and sinful now became lawful if civil law allowed it.
Remember civil law also allows abortion, birth control, divorce and same-sex marriage.

Without this critical change in Canon Law, Catholics would have been unable to participate in the lending or borrowing of money with interest, and Protestants might have asked themselves about the morality of usury.
What a different place the world would be today if the teaching had not been changed.

In 1917, Europe was enmeshed in an evil war that was ultimately to lead to an even worse war with the rise of National Socialism in Germany.

In 1917, the reigning Pope was seriously concerned about the formation of Catholic priests and bishops, and their emphasis on education at the expense of faith formation. In his encyclical Humani genoris redemptionem, dated June 15, Benedict XV wrote,
"What gives a man's life worth and vigor and makes them promote wonderfully the salvation of souls is Divine Grace. 'God gave the increase. (2Cor3:6)'. But the grace of God is not gained by study and practice: it is won by prayer, therefore he who is little given to prayer or neglects it altogether, vainly spends his time and labor preaching, for in God's sight his sermons profit neither himself nor those that hear him."
The Pope went so far as to request that all those priests who are incapable of preaching be weeded out.
How many priests and bishops since 1917, have seemingly lacked Divine Grace but were not weeded out?
How many priests and bishops have devoted their time to earning an advanced degree?

I don't believe it was coincidental that the Blessed Virgin appeared at Fatima in 1917, to give the Church grave warnings!

Yet still the solemn consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart by the Pope and the bishops in union with him, has not happened

Is the Pope About To Act?

On Ocober 26th, 2001, the magazine "Inside the Vatican" reported that Sister Lucia of Fatima sent Pope John Paul II a letter of warning, in which it is claimed she said,
 "Soon there will be great upheaval and punishment."

Anyone who is familiar with timing given by heaven knows that 'soon' could easily be ten years.

The same magazine, "Inside the Vatican" has just printed, in its currrent edition, a letter from a person responsible for Vatican travel reporting that all the archbishops of the Church have been called to Rome for fourteen days starting October 10th. Those who cannot attend by October 17th are being told not to come at all.

No information was provided as to the reason for this 'synod' of archbishops to gather in Rome.

It will not have escaped the attention of Fatimaists that the archbishops will be in Rome for the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun, 94 years ago. As I have suggested in an earlier blog, I believe the 100 year anniversary of Fatima coincides with the 100 years of increased power and influence given to the devil. If this is the case, the devil has only 6 years to bring about his triumph over the greater part of humanity.

Would the Blessed Virgin allow her adversary, to complete his span without winning for her children the grace of the "Illumination of Conscience"? I don't think so!

What are the archbishops going to discuss for two weeks?
Could it be the Warning or Illumination of Conscience?
Could it be an impending "great upheaval and punishment" as reported by Inside the Vatican in 2001?
Could it be a decision to release the missing Blessed Virgin's commentary on the third part of the secre ?

Time is short! It seems to me the Church will be overwhelmed by people seeking explanations and guidance after the Warning. What a great blessing it would be if the Holy Father was to instruct the world's bishops to prepare in advance. It would require enormous courage on the part of the Pope to step out in faith and make preparations in anticipation of the Warning.

I believe Pope Benedict XVI is the last pope of the 'common era' and as such is the one who will be forced to flee Rome and be martyred. I pray that he will use his remaining time wisely to do what requires great bravery by acting outside what we normally think of as the Vatican 'box'.

Please pray for the Pope.

The Three Greatestest Issues Facing The Church And Therefore The World

It is reported that Antonio Cardinal Canizares Llovera, Prefect for Divine Worship, asked Pope Benedict what are the greatest issues the Church must deal with today.

Pope Benedict replied:
1. Secularization within the Church.
2. The peaceful invasion of Europe by Islam.
3. The ever greater control of freemasonry on the cultural level and the centers of power of the European Union.

I wonder how long it would take heaven to deal with those issues if the Pope was to solemnly consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart in union with the bishops of the world?

I am not sure I understand the full imlication of the last issue but it doesn't sound good.

Another Warning

"I am worried by the Blessed Virgin's messages to Lucy at Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is the divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in her liturgy, her theology and her soul...."
(Pope Pius XII when still Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli)

How well did Cardinal Pacelli see what the Church was doing to herself. Yet  when he became Pope he contributed to the Church's undoing by failing to solemnly consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart in union with the bishops of the world.

How could Cardinal Pacelli be so prescient yet fail to respond to the Blessed Virgin's words?

It should be an object lesson to us all.

How often we fail to do the right thing!

Why Joseph Ratzinger believes the Warning, Miracle and Sign are needed now.

On page 30 of  "Jesus of Nazareth", Joseph Ratzinger, writing as an individual, without the magisterium of the Pontifical Office, provides the rational for what lies immediately ahead when he says:
"This demand for proof is a constantly recurring theme in the story of Jesus' life: again and again he is reproached for having failed to work that great miracle that will remove all ambiquity and every contradiction, so as to make it indisputably clear for everyone who and what he is or is not."

"And we make this same demand of God and Christ and his Church throughout the whole of history.
'If you exist, God,' we say, 'then you'll just have to show yourself.' You'll have to part the clouds that conceal you and give us the clarity that we deserve, If you, Christ, are really the Son of God, and not just another one of the enlightened individuals who keep appearing in the course of history, then you'll just have to prove it more clearly than you are doing now."

On page 34, Joseph makes a clear reference for the need for the Sign when he writes:
"Of course one can still ask why God did not make a world in which his presence is more evident - why Christ did not leave the world with another sign of his prenece so radiant that no one could resist it."

I was at a loss to understand why the Pope would write as an individual rather that as Pope. Having read the first few chapters I better understand why! He could not give his "guidance" the power of his office but yet he wants us to know he too believes God will not leave us orphan in this age of unbelief.

Jesus came as a man and understands perfectly how hard it is, in this "scientific age"  to trust in what we cannot see or know definitively.

Joseph is also a man and understands how hard it is to trust. On page 38 he says:
"You know that the foundation of the world is love, so that even when no human being can or will help you, you may go on, trusting in the One who loves you."

It may be more difficult to trust in God today, when trust in some priests, nuns and bishops has been misplaced.
Could that be why Jesus would give us, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin, a Warning, Miracle and  Permanent Sign to reinforce our faith and trust in Him?

Church v anti-Church, Gospel v anti-Gospel

"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through.
I do not think that wide circles of the American Society or wide circles of the Christian Community realize this fully.
We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel.
It is a trial which the Church must take up."

Blessed Pope John Paul II, is reputed to have made the above statement when visiting the U.S.A. as Karol Cardinal Wojtyla, in 1976.

The antithesis compared to the thesis is considered the direct opposite. The anti-Gospel does not seem like the direct opposite of the Gospel and accordingly is easily accepted as the Gospel when the error/change is presented as deeper interpretation or more enlighted understanding.

The anti-church doesn't seem very different to the Church but lack of obedience to the Holy Father or adherence to traditional Church teaching is not always apparent.

How can the average person know if he or she is hearing the Gospel or the anti-Gospel?

Frankly, it is very difficult to distinquish between them except when looking at extremes.

The best solution is to hold fast to the Blessed Virgin. She above all knows her Son's Gospel.

Consecration to Mary, the Mother of God, is the best antidote to error.

Ask Mary, as the Advocate of the People of God, for protection.

I forget who said, he who acts as his own attorney has a fool representing him, or words to that effect.

Why The Warning?

Why is God giving us the gift of the Illumination of Conscience?

It is a gift won for us, her children, by the Blessed Virgin, who knows that without it humanity is finished.

Why is it necessary?

The fog of error is so dense only the Virgin can lead us back to the truth about her son.

The Blessed Virgin, as the Mediatrix of All Grace, has a unique relationship with the Holy Spirit that has been likened to a spousal relationship. Calling on that relationship, the Blessed Virgin, has won for each of us, her children, the greatest of blessings, the opportunity to see the truth about our lives in the Light of Christ.

What do natural parents wish for their children?

That they would know the truth and that the truth would set them free.

Soon, each of us will  know the truth about our personal "morality". We will know how much we have manipulated the truth to suit our needs and how far that manipulation has distanced us from Christ, who is the real Truth.

Because the Blessed Virgin, is the Mother of God, she has a unique perspective on how far each of us are from her Son.

What a great Mother we have. What a tremendous gift she has won for us.

The Blessed Virgin has won what Christ would freely give if we would encounter Him in prayer and sacrament on a frequent basis. Jesus wants us to know and repent of our sins. He has given us the means to do that and be truly converted but most of us ignore the means.

There is still time to prepare for the Warning by asking God to reveal through the Blessed Virgin's intercession, the reality of our conscience, so that we might repent now.

The Abomination of Desolation

What is the Abomination of Desolation?

Many believe it to be a statue or figure which people will worship during the time of the Antichrist.

What would you say to the abomination being a false religion that looks and smell like Catholicism but is in fact a corrupted form which is no longer true!

At La Salette the Blessed Virgin said,
"Many will turn their backs on the Faith;
the number of priests and religious who fall away from the true religion will be large.
There will even be bishops among them....
(The demons) will subvert the faith even among consecrated persons and blind them so much that these persons will accept the spirit of the fallen angels.
Many religious houses will lose the Faith completely and lead many souls to ruin.
Unusual happenings will occur everywhere, for the true Faith will have been extinquished and a false light will enlighten the world...."

Has the Abomination of Desolation occurred?

Has the true Faith been lost?

Is the Faith that we call Roman still pure?

It is no longer a sin to lend money at interest.
Is that an unusual happening?

We are no longer invited to bring the Good News to heretics, schismatics and Jews.
Is that an unusual happening?

The Real Presence is no longer found exclusively in Holy Communion.
Is that an unusual happening?

Fine silver is defined as 99.9% pure.
Sterling silver is only 92.5% pure.

How subverted must the pure Faith be before it is called the Abomination of Desolation in heaven?

Is 92.5% purity enough?

Thoughts About Joan d'Arc and Henri de la Croix

Today is the feast of Saint Joan of Arc. When I read the Mark Twain biography of Joan it made me ashamed of my English roots. Twain's book, which many regard as his magnum opus, did great justice to Joan's many fine qualities, even though she was a simple peasant.

When I think of Joan, I compare her to Henri de la Croix, the Great Monarch - Son of David.
Despite her many battles, Joan never stained her sword with an enemy's blood.  Scripture is clear, "Thou Shall Not Kill".

I believe it will be the same for Henri. He will engage the enemies of Christ in many battles but not be compelled to kill anyone, out of respect for the sanctity of human life.

Let's consider for a moment some of Henri's other qualities.
His personal sanctity and holiness will be great.
His trust will be entirely in God, not in generals or princes.
Everything he will accomplish will be done for the greater glory of God, not himself.

My wife and I debate whether he is a family man. I believe he has a wife and children.
My wife believes he is more likely single so that, like a priest, he can dedicate all his energy to serving God through God's people.

I believe that Henri is alive today. He leads a hidden life waiting for the time of his destiny. I wonder does he pray to Joan d'Arc, asking her to intereceed for him with Jesus or does he direct all his efforts to the Mother of Jesus, our Mediatrix par excellance.

We know that Henri suffers from a limp caused by a problem with one leg.
Surely he will be bilingual in French and English and perhaps also fluent in German.
Given how he will cooperate with the future Czar of Russia, it would be beneficial for Henri to speak Russian.

It's Often Good Until It Becomes an "...ism".

There is nothing wrong with being social until it becomes Socialism.
Being liberal can be a virtue until it becomes Liberalism.
We are all human but Humanism tries to put man in God's place.
The Commune opposed God even before the advent of Communism.
Luther's protests against certain Catholic practices had merit until they became Protestantism.

Virtue lies in the middle of a continuum which has vice at both ends.
Take charity as an example.
An abundance of generosity might involve giving away all one's material possessions and being unable to provide for one's family.
Being unable to share could result in scrooge-like behavior.
Genuine charity lies in the middle.
I don't believe in Catholicism because it seems to be an extreme at one end or the other.

I am joyful being a Catholic.
I am happy to be a member of a Church that is universal in outreach and centered in Rome, but I do not subscribe to many things that today are dubed Catholicism.
Lack of belief in things supernatural such as the messages of Fatima or Lourdes.
Lack of recognition of the role of  Mary, the Mother of God, in the Economy of Salvation.
Lack of practice of the Communion of Saints.
Lack of emphasis on the four last things, death, judgement, heaven and hell.
Lack of belief in the need for sacramental confession.
Lack of respect for the consecrated host and Eucharistic Adoration.
Lack of respect for the sanctity of the church building as God's residence.
Equating the killing of an abortionist with abortion or suicide bombing.
Putting priests, bishops and even popes on a pedestal and not holding them accountable.

Blessed John Paul II was a great Pope but he made some serious mistakes, as all humans do.
Pope Benedict XVI is a good Pope but he too is human.
The Roman Church has made a large number of mistakes since Vatican II but given she is holy, she will repent of them and try to make restitution.
It seems to me that the suppression of the Latin Mass was a great mistake but it does seem that Pope Benedict is recognising the error and making restitution.
Will the extremists allow it? or will they go into schism?

When Did The Church Change Its Teaching on Usury?

There was a time when lending money at interest was a sin.

There was a time if a Catholic had gone to confession and admitted lending money at interest he would only have received absolution after agreeing not to repeat the sin.
This obviously made it impossible to be a Catholic banker

Why did the Church change its position on Usury?
Has the Church changed its teaching on prostitution?

I don't believe lending money at interest was a Church law like eating meat on Friday.
Usury is repeatedly condemned in the Old Testament.
From the earliest days of the Church it was forbidden for followers of Christ to engage in usury.

Today, usury is defined as charging exorbitant interest rates.
Isn't that just a legal way of redefining sin?

If I had to point to one change made by the Church which has lead, more than any other, to the Great Apostasy,  it would be the change on usury.

In my opinion, the Bankers of the world have the control they do over every element of society because of usury.

Most wage earners have become essentially wage slaves because of usury.

Student loan debt has surpassed consumer credit card debt.
I recently heard of a veterinarian student who still had one year to complete her studies, whose student loan debt was $400,000. It is quite possible it will reach $500,000 by graduation.

The worst example of usury seems to me that when a congregation decides to build a new church or school and the bishop decides the diocese will lend the parish the funds. The bishop takes title to the church and then charges the parish interest on the money borrowed.

I find it interesting that Muslims may not charge interest. Muslim banks takes an equity position in an enterprise in which they invest.

It is impossible to worship God and money. Doesn't the Church still teach this?

The Scoffers Won The Day - Again

May 21st came and went and no Rapture.
One pastor was proven to be a 'false' prophet.
It's not hard to be a scoffer in these end times.
Afterall, 2,000 years have passed and still no Rapture.
The odds are always in favor of the scoffers.

The issue for me isn't is the Rapture Biblical or not?
The issue is, does God, in an act of mercy, choose to reveal apocalyptic events and timetables?

Many events and times have been revealed and published before the fact. Fatima is probaly the best known of the 20th century. The Mother of God revealed that World War I was about to end but unless mankind changed, a worse war would begin during the reign of Pope Pius XI.  She also predicted the evils of Communism/Socialism.  Several other predicted events have yet to occur.

The final Fatima apparition and miracle occurred in October 1917.
The Bolsheviks gained control of the Russian Revolution in the same month.

It is said that Jesus gave the devil 100 years to do his worst and who would argue the devil has been unbelievably successful?

I am convinced that events leading up to 2017 are going to reveal that God's warnings, delivered through the Mediatrix of ALL Grace, should not be ignored, even if one man got it wrong on May 21st.

It is easy to be a scoffer. It is just as easy to be a doomsayer.
Pope John XXIII called the children of Fatima doomsayers when he opened the council.
Pope Paul VI was a doomsayer himself soon after he closed it.

The choice is not between being a scoffer or a doomsayer.
The choice is between believing that the devil is winning but that the Mediatrix will be given the Grace to warn each of us and show us the truth before it is too late.

I choose to believe that a Merciful God will allow the Mediatrix to give us one more "Warning" before localised tribulations become universal.

God is so merciful. God knew that giving the devil that much power and time would have dire consequence, so I pray that through the intercession of the Mediatrix, each of us will experience an Illumination of Conscience.
The truth will kill some of us.
       The truth will cause some of us to repent and be converted.
              The truth will have no effect on some.

What greater grace could the Creator give the creature than the truth about the deceptions of the devil. I believe this Good God will not allow the Tribulation to become universal until the truth is revealed to each of us, individually and personally.

Daily, I pray for the Illumination of Conscience. That doesn't mean that I couldn't die in a flood, an earthquake or a tornado in the meantime. But the Mediatrix made certain promises to those who would make the Five First Saturdays of Reparation. I am counting on that promise just as much as I am counting on her predictions/prophecies.

What else is worth counting on other than the Mercy of a Good God?
I know I can count on God 's justice too, but I beg for mercy before justice.

March 11th Isn't Getting Our Attention Like September 11th Did

It is now over two months since the beginning of the Fukushima disaster on March 11th. Rarely a day goes by that does not involve new revelations of the magnitude of the unfolding disaster but for most of the media and therefore most of the people, Fukushima is yesterday's news.

It is now 25 years since Chernobyl. The latest translation of Russian language reports suggest nearly one million deaths directly attributable to Chernobyl. The official number is less than one hundred.

I am sixty five years old and likely to die in the next twenty years. My concern is for my children and grandchildren and all the other people in the world who were hoping to live to a ripe old age, enjoying a reasonable, cancer-free life.

It is clear that the managers of TEPCO are incompetent yet the Japanese government has no immediate plan to nationalize the company or take over the direct management of the crisis. The failure to direct the world's most competent resources toward Fukushima will result in the world's most competent not living to enjoy their pensions.

Japan is in imminent danger. Asia is in imminent danger. The northern hemisphere is in imminent danger. There is no one who is not in imminent danger.

Are we going to wait until we seen a dramatic increase in birth defects before we take action? Are we going to wait until the Japanese healthcare system is overwhelmed?

This is a planet earth crisis happening before our eyes. This is worse than global warming. This is as bad as nuclear war.

The crisis in Japan is more important than the price of gas; more important than the unemployment problems; more important than the rocketing increases in the cost of living; more important than the Arab Spring; more important than the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya.

When are we going to see through the smoke and mirrors? Japan's problem is our problem.

The national debate needs to be about how we commit our finest resources to solving the Fukushima problems. This is a crisis which needs our attention in the "national interest"!

What is the point of being the most powerful and advanced nation in the world if we sit back and wait for everyone we know and love, to be poisoned?

The only possible explanation for the failure to act must be that Fukushima is the long sought-for answer to the population problem. The billionaires that invest their wealth in population control have been handed a solution that simply requires a failure to act. Most of them are old men anyway and they can afford to take precautions that are unavailable to us useless eaters.

God help us. We are going to let evil have its way without a fight. Perhaps we deserve nothing better?

The Silent Schism

On May 13, the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, William Cardinal Levada, head of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, issued instructions to the Church Universal advising the hierarchy on the implementation of, "Summorum Pontificum" issued July 7, 2007, but as yet implemented by so few priests and bishops.

The Tridentine Mass is referred to as the extraordinary form, while the Novus Ordo as the ordinary form. Rome reminds the bishops of the world it is their responsibility to undertake all necessary measures to ensure respect for the extraordinary form. An interesting choice of word, respect.

The faculty to celebrate in the extraordinary form is given to all priests and they do not require special permission from their ordinaries or superiors. A priest responsible for a church is to be guided by his own prudence, motivated by pastoral zeal and a spirit of generous welcome in offering the Tridentine Liturgy, codified by the Council of Trent in 1570.

The instructions are aimed at "Promoting reconciliation at the heart of the Church" but I wonder does Rome really believe this can happen without a great outpouring of grace from heaven. Given how few priests and bishops have yet to respond to instructions already nearly three years old, why does Rome think these new instuctions will make a difference?

For me, the issue here is not the extraordinary and/or the ordinary forms of the Holy Mass. The issue is will the bishops of the Catholic Church exercise obedience and do what they have been instructed to do? Or will they choose to distance themselves from the Roman Pontif?

Pope Benedict has placed the Pontifical Commission under his direct authority. William Cardinal Levada reports directly to the Pope. I read this as a sign that the Pope will not allow anyone or anything to come between him and the widespread reintroduction of the Tridentine Mass.

It is my opinion, post-council Popes have been unwilling to give direct orders to the bishops of the world, as for example, to consecrate their dioceses to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Recent Popes were afraid the bishops would disobey them and a schism would result.

I find it interesting that the issue of the extraordinary form of the Holy Mass is one on which Pope Benedict is willing to risk schism. I have little doubt that the majority of the bishops will refuse to follow Cardinal Levada's instructions and a "quite schism", will ensue.

Is the reintroduction of the Tridentine Mass something the Pope is willing to risk schism for? It seems yes. Unless he is deliberately trying to bring about a schism, which I doubt, the Tridentine Mass must be something worth risking everything for.

What must we the faithful do?

As for me and my family, we will immediately ask our priest for the Mass in the extraordinary form. We will do this in a spirit of charity in the hope that the grace flowing from obedience to the instruction will be a grace to the Church in a time of great need.

Yesterday, I asked a priest I met in another parish, what his reaction to the instructions was. He told me he was unaware of it but that he had been told in the seminary, from which he graduated three years earlier, that according to Canon Law, the Tridentine Mass could not be celebrated in a church built after the council. Amazing!

The instructions made a point of reminding the bishops and superiors of religious orders, of the Church's rule of prayer, "lex orandi - lex credenti", which I translate, as the Church prays so it believes. Some claim this rule has been reversed in the new revisions to the Roman Missal.

Everything could be at stake with this "Summorum Pontificum".

It is not too early to be asking oneself, "Is there anything that will seperate me from the Romam Pontif?"

May 13, Fatima Anniversary

It's now ninety four years since the Virgin Mary appeared to the three children at Fatima.

In almost a century the Church has failed to consecrate Russia or promote the five saturdays of reparation.

In the meantime secular humanism has become the world's religion, especially in the economically more developed world.

I have just finished reading the story of the St. Benedict's Center in Cambridge, Mass, where Father Leonard Feeney taught the Faith. Fr. Feeney was ultimately dismissed as a Jesuit but his words contained in a letter dated August 10, 1949, to the General of the Society of Jesus ring true today.

"The more I express my distress and suffering to see the Catholic Faith disappear from among the Catholics of the United States, because of the heretical teachings of my brothers of the Society of Jesus, the more do my enemies, who are betraying their Faith and their sacred vows of fidelity to the Catholic doctrine and to His Holinesss, the Pope, find themselves supported in their tyranical measures by the decrees and the disciplinary measures directed against me and proceeding from Your Paternity." (Trans from the French.)

In May of the same year he had written the General of the Society,
"If Your Paternity does not do this (investigate at once the orthodoxy of the Jesuit Provincial) it means the ruin of the Faith in this country, due to the negligence of our own order."

How prophetic were Fr. Feeney's words. He realized that the Jesuits had the power to stop the Liberalization of the Roman Church, but history now suggests they were prominent in the promotion of Liberalism.

Only six years now to the centenary of Fatima. Only six years to repent and be converted. God give me the strength to repent.

"The Cult of Man."

A brief extract from Pope Paul VI's words during the closing of Vatican Council II on December 7, 1965.
"Secularizing and profane humanism has finally appeared in its terrible stature, and has, in a certain sense, defied the Council. The religion of God Who became man has encountered the religion of man who makes himself God."

"What happened?
A clash, a battle, an anathema?
This could have happened; but it did not take place.
The old story of the Samaritan has been the model of the Council's spirituality.
An unlimited sympathy has pervaded it completely.
The discovery of human needs has absorbed our Synod's attention."

"Recognize for it at least this merit, you modern humanists, who deny the transcendence of the highest things, and recognize our new humanism: we too, we more than anybody, have the cult of man."

The cult of man or secular humanism was initially the religion of Marxism but today it is the religion of most intellectuals and those with a liberal disposition.

Has the religion of God, who became man, been overwhelmed by the religion of man who makes himself God?

Has the revolt against God yet reached the point where the God, who became man, will intervene and what form will the intervention take?

I believe the intervention will be a Great Illumination of Conscience!

Through the intervention of Mary Most Holy, each of us will see the truth about ourself in the "Light of Christ."

We will come face-to-face with the Truth who is the Christ, He who referred to Himself as the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Many people have lost their lives in recent years to eathquakes, tsunamis, storms, inundations and other natural disasters. Many more will lose their lives to radiation poisoning and from the polluting of the Gulf of Mexico.

Surely through the mediation of Our Blessed Mother, God will soon give us the Illumination so that we might know the Truth and be set free from the Cult of Man.

The Third Part of the Fatima Secret

I have just finished reading Frere Michel's book, "The Third Secret", which is volume three of a four volume set "The Whole Truth About Fatima". What a great read and written before the Vatican released information which I  believe to be only the vision given to the children without the words of the Blessed Virgin. The book was also written while John Paul II was Pope. I suspect with no thought on Frere Michel's part that the next Pope would be Joseph Ratzinger.

Here are my thoughts on what I think the Blessed Virgin said, in my words NOT hers.

In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will be preserved; not so in other nations unless my ministers fulfill my requests. The Holy Father must preserve that which has merit before God or those infiltrating the Church at the highest levels will place man above the Creator. The Great Apostasy spoken of in Sacred Scripture will see the pastors leading their flocks into perdition. In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, and she will be converted and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.

I believe the Pope seen in the vision to be Pope Benedict XVI and the city half in ruins to be Rome. This means that Pope Benedict will be killed by the Church's enemies; a consequence of not heeding the Blessed Virgins's requests. I continue to hope that Pope Benedict will have a change of heart as he remembers Our Lord's words to Sister Lucy at Rianjo, in August 1931.

"Make it known to My ministers, given they follow the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of my request, they will follow him into misfortune. It will never be too late to have recourse to Jesus and Mary."

The centenary of Fatima will be 2017. I believe ALL will be revealed by then.

What Did May First Mean to You?

Osama Bin Laden is dead. People are coming together at Ground Zero, Times Square and the White House to express, what we would normally call joy, but can joy, a gift from God, be an appropriate sentiment at the death of a man and his son?

Over the weekend we learned that Colonel Gadaffi's son and grandchildren had been killed by an American airstrike. Is this a cause for celebration?

Do the people of the USA intend to kill Gadaffi? Is that a "just" solution to the conflict in Libya?

Can American forces be used to kill Castro, Chavez, Putin?

It is interesting that the announcement of Bin Laden's death came on May Day, the same day Hitler's death was announced. In much of Europe, May first was highjacked by the Socialists and Communists but it is still the first day of the month in which we are invited to honor Mary, the Mother of God.

When Mary appeared to the children at Fatima she promised that if the Pope, in union with the bishops of the church, would consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart, peace would result. Neither the Pope nor the bishops did as Mary asked and Russia has spead her errors as predicted. Interestingly, the bishops of Portugal consecrated their dioceses to Mary, and Portugal was spared involvement in the Spanish civil war and WWII.

Mary said that " the end..." Russia would be concecrated but it would be late, perhaps too late.

Yesterday, a great Pope was beatified, yet even he did not consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart. Pope John Paul II did not proclaim a fifth Marian dogma, that of Mary as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. This despite Mary's claim that " the end..." this dogma would be proclaimed.

All of this means that we are not yet "... in the end...", because neither of the actions requested by Mary have happened. My question is why?

Why do Popes and bishops not consecrate their sees to the Virgin Most Holy?

Has the spirit of Protestantism, so overwhelmed the Catholic Church, that it cannot believe that the Mother of God has the power and the authority to end wars and counter the attacks of the devil?

A Church lead by such men is headed for destruction. We cannot hide behind Christ's promise that the gates of hell will not prevail. Better we remember that the bride, like the groom, must die in order to experience resurrection.

The Church is dying and not from old age. She is being destroyed and the means given to us by God to revive her are being ignored.

Yesterday, was Divine Mercy Sunday, a feast instituted by Pope John Paul II. Despite the fact that this was the date chosen for his beatification, the church I attend did not celebrate it as John Paul  II intended.

How long, I wonder, before the first Sunday after Easter will return to only being the Octave of Easter? At the church I attend there was no mention of  Mary, Divine Mercy or the Beatification. No alter or flowers for Mary! No crowning of a statue by the children! Nothing to acknowledge the role of Mary or John Paul II in the economy of salvation. This is the same church where the priest consecrated leaven bread for Easter.

In 1961, at Garabandal, Spain, Mary said, "We must make many sacrifices, perform much penance, and visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently, but first we must lead good lives." In 1965, she returned to Garabandal saying, "As my message ... has not been complied with and has not been made known to the world, I am advising you that this is the last one."

When are our Popes and Bishops going to get it? When will they understand that " the end..." God's will is always done?

Acting in the National Interest

Do politicians typically act in the national interest?

Did the government of Ireland, when making the debts of the banks into the debts of the nation, do that in the national interest?

When the Irish politicians "coerced" the people of Ireland into voting for the European Constitution, did they do that in the national interest?

Did the Republican party when agreeing to continue funding Planned  Parenthood, do that in the national interest?

Did the kings of France when neglecting to consecrate France to the Sacred Heart, act in the national interest?

When the Popes and bishops of the world refused to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart, whose interest were they serving?

When the Federal Reserve loaned billions to the banks of the world, whose interest were they serving?

When our politicians decide to "balance" the budget at the expense of the poor and the elderly, whose interests will they be serving?

The people of Iceland just decided to put national interest before the interests of the bankers!

Many of the people of the Arab world are deciding to put their interests before those of the dictators that rule them!

The interests of the people are served when the politicians serve the PEOPLE not the "Elite"!

If all the members of the Senate are members of the elite, how can the national interest be served?

We are living in the times described in the Apocalypse, (Revelation).

It is time to put our houses in order, especially our spiritual houses.

The national interest will be best served by each one of us asking whose interests are served when our politicians act or fail to act? In my opinion their actions stopped being in the national interest a long time ago.

When the Son of Man Returns Will He Find Faith on the Earth?

Why did Pope John Paul II, soon to be Blessed John Paul, not order the bishops of the world to join with him when he consecrated the world to the Blessed Virgin in 1984?

Why did John Paul II not proclaim the Fifth Marian Dogma, recognising the Blessed Virgin Mary as Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate of the people of God?

Could it be that he was trying to avoid a schism in the Roman Catholic Church?

Why would John Paul II think that such actions could bring about a schism?

Is it because of what John Paul II, as Pope, read on the single page written by Sister Lucia containing the words of the Mother of  God?

Did the Blessed Virgin suggest certain behaviors of the Church hierarchy would cause a schism?

Was John Paul II restricted in his actions out of concern that a schism not occur on his watch?

How else can one explain why the most Marian Pope in recent history chose not to take two actions that could have given greater recognition to the role of the Blessed Virgin in the economy of salvation.

One can argue that the Fifth Marian Dogma would have made ecumenical relations with Protestants more difficult. That argument was advanced for the Fourth Marian Dogma but history has disproved the thesis.

My opinion is that following Vatican Council II many Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church became quite Protestant. As such, their view of the Blessed Virgin's role in the affairs of the modern Church is greatly diminished. This despite the words at Fatima, "In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph."

The Blessed Virgin went on to say, "The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, and she will be converted..." What does converted mean? Convered to Christian Orthodoxy or to Roman Catholicism?

Before the Bolshevik revolution and murder of the Czar, Russia was arguably the holiest country in the world. With the conversion of Russia, Catholic orthodoxy might have the greatest of allies.

If there is to be a schism within the Roman Church perhaps Orthodoxy may be able to help the faithful decide which side to choose, given the Orthodox Church was not a participant in Vatican II, (two Russian observers notwithstanding).

A Bishop Dressed in White

Sister Lucia said, "We had the impression that it was the Holy Father".

"On his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions."

Sister Lucia received the Secret on July 13th, 1917. Despite commentaries to the contrary, could the vision refer to Benedict XVI, the current Pope?

What could possibly cause the Pope and those loyal to him to be so persecuted between now and 2017?

"When the third angel blew his trumpet, a large star burning like a torch fell from the sky.  It fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The star was called "Wormwood," and a third of all the water turned to wormwood. Many people died from this water, because it was made bitter." (Rev 8, 10 and 11)

Imagine if a part of the Fatima secret provides important deails of a 'star' falling from the sky?
Imagine these details are being withheld because there are other embarassing details about apostasy within the Church at the highest levels?
Imagine how people will react, inside and outside the Church, if Wormwood arrives and it turns out the Church had foreknowledge but failed to act on it?

Jesus said to Sister Lucia in August of 1931:
"Make it known to my ministers that, given they follow the example of the King of France in delaying execution of My command, they will follow him into misfortune."
Notice how Jesus uses the word, 'execution' of my command."

Exactly one hundred years before the French revolution in 1789, Jesus appeared to Sister Margaret Mary Alacoque giving her a message for the King of France, Louis XIV. Neither the Sun King nor his successors acted on the message and exactly 100 years later the monarchy was overthrown.
Jesus did not spare France even though it is the Elder Daughter of the Church.

The Roman Catholic Church is a monarchy. Could it go the way of the French monarchy between now and 2017?

The Third Secret of Fatima

Reading Antoni Socci's book, "The Fourth Secret of Fatima", one finds on page 89, the following quote attributed to Sister Lucia. It was an extremely rare public declaration in which she linked the third part of the Secret to the Apocalypse, (the book of Revelation).


She also indicated precisely Chapters 8 and 13.
Chapter eight refers to Wormwood, a heavenly body that may already be causing geophysical disasters here on earth.
Chapter thirteen describes the Beasts, freemasonry and eccesiastical freemasonry (tools of the Illuminati).

These are the great dangers facing humanity today.
The first, Wormwood, is physical and the second, freemasonry, is spiritual.
In six years it will be the one hundred year anniversay of Fatima - 1917.
Is it reasonable to assume all the events described in the Secret will come to pass within one hundred years?

Denial Revisted

On January 3rd, I blogged on the subject of denial. It had little to do with the Great Monarch directly but more to do with the events leading up to his appearance. In that blog I mentioned the economic crisis that has begun in France, suggesting that the crisis would not be confined just to France.

Well the crisis is much broader in just three months but denial continues to hinder our ability to see it. One aspect of the crisis involves the ongoing pollution of the Gulf of Mexico and the impact on the Gulf Stream.
A second aspect involves the nuclear disaster in Japan which threatens the lives of every person living in Japan and the surrounding countries.

In denial we have turned our back on the continuing problems in the Gulf and soon the media will remove the Japan story from page one.

It is twenty five years since Chernobyl. Current estimates suggest that nearly one million people have already died as a result of the Chernobyl accident. Despite the Cherobyl warning, we continue to build nuclear reactors because they are good business for General Electric and TEPCO, and a handful of other companies that are major campaign contributors.

In twenty five more years, when we are looking at ten or one hundred million dead from the Fukushima accident, will we still be in denial that what is good for business is not necessarily good for people?

In our hearts we know that we are all going to be affected by the Fukushima accident, some more than others, yet there is no public outcry.

Japan has one of the largest economies in the world. At this moment the Japanese economy is badly broken. Before the year is out all economies are going to feel the effect of the destruction of Japan. Can we not see that? Is the denial so great?

The Japanese problem is not just about what color you can order a Toyota. Japan is a key economy. One cannot pull the plug on Japan without the interlocking economies feeling it. Japan has experienced a serious population decline for decades. In the light of the Fukushima situation it may not be an exaggeration to say that Japan may be finished as a "first world" nation.

Is this an opportunity for the people of Japan to find God? Prosperity seems to be inversely correlated with belief in God. As the economic disaster deepens in Japan, it is possible that more people will turn to God looking for answers. Or will denial reign?

Iranian Video Says Mahdi is 'Near'

CBN News reports, "New evidence has emerged that the Iranian government sees the unrest in the Middle East as a signal that the Mahdi--or Islamic messiah--is about to appear."

"CBN News has obtained a never-seen-before video produced by the Iranian regime that says all the signs are moving into place -- and that Iran will soon help usher in the end times."

"While the revolutionary movements gripping the Middle East have created uncertainty throughout the region, the video shows that the Iranian regime believes the chaos is divine proof that their ultimate victory is at hand."

"The propaganda footage has reportedly been approved at the highest levels of the Iranian government."

"It's called 'The Coming is Near' and it describes current events in the Middle East as a prelude to the arrival of the mythical twelfth Imam or Mahdi -- the messiah figure who Islamic scriptures say will lead the armies of Islam to victory over all non-Muslims in the last days."

"The video claims that Iran is destined to rise as a great power in the last days to help defeat America and Israel and usher in the return of the Mahdi. And it makes clear the Iranians believe that time is fast approaching."

All the above and more can be found at

If you read my blogs for February 2nd and 3rd you will see that I was asking is he near? (I did refer to him as the thirteenth Imam).

How long before war between Israel and Iran?
Is either side willing to use nuclear weapons?
The Iranians want to occupy Jerusalem so I believe are less likely to use weapons of mass destruction if they have them.
I'm less sure of the Israelis.
Remember the prophecies claim the Mahdi cannot come until chaos reigns.
For some this means they must bring about chaos in order to usher in the Mahdi's coming.
Don't lose sight of the fact that the Mahdi is a Shia figure not Sunni.

A Great Sign Appeared in the Heavens

Please find below an extract from a message given to Marie Julie Jahenny in 1935.
"When you shall see the appearance of the Aurora Borealis, know well that this is the sign of an approaching war. When the light will become visible once again, my mother will rise up before the setting sun to forewarn that the times are here. The evil ones will only see a terrifying monster and they will cry out frightened and in despair, but it will be too late. I will save many, many souls for the other life."

It is commonly believed that a unique Aurora Borealis occurrred in 1938, just before the outbreak of World War II. Lucia, the Fatima seer, was told a strange light would indicate that a new war was approaching. Lucia did not clearly confirm that the 1938 Aurora Borealis was indeed the strange light.

Is it possible that the forthcoming wars will again be forewarned by an extraordinary Aurora Borealis?
It is not difficult to monitor the internet for extraordinary manifestations of the Aurora Borealis.

" mother will rise up before the setting sun to forewarn that the times are here."
This aspect of the message makes me believe this manifestation of the Mother of Jesus is yet to happen.
Again it is not difficult to monitor the internet for reports of unusual figures rising up before the setting sun.

God is good. He has given us much information to help us better understand the events that lie ahead.
If, as I believe, the Illumination of Conscience will occur in my lifetime, I give thanks for the opportunity it will provide to know how deceived I am about the condition of my soul and to repent.

The Illumination of Conscience or the Warning

Many of us have seen or heard of the boy Colton who claims he went to heaven during a near-death experience, when he was four years old. He describes how he sat on the lap of Jesus.

Helen Tzima Otto suggests that the Illumination of Conscience will be similar to a near-death experience. In her book, The Economy of Salvation, 2009, she quotes from the research of Dr. Raymond Moody, who has identified a number of common elements in near-death experiences.
 Below are several of those elements, I believe we will each undergo during the Illumination.
     1. An out of body sensation
     2. Meeting the Being of Light
     3. Reviewing our entire life; all its acts and failures to act from the point of view of the Creator
     4. Re-entering the body
     5. Having the certain knowledge that there is a life other than the one we normally experience
We will all endure the Illumination at the same time. I believe humanity will be in what I will call a "state of suspended animation".
We will each react differently to our Illumination, with most of us lacking the words to describe what happened.
The critical issue will be our belief in or denial of our experience.
Many of us will choose to change our lives out of gratitude for being given a second chance.
What is preventing me from making that change today, in anticipation of the Illumination?

Who Decided To Make War On Libya?

Obama, Cameron and Sarkosy.
What an unholy trinity!
Given what we now know about these three men, if they asked me for $2 to help them in their political struggles, I could not respond with a yes.
How can I sit back and allow these opportunists to invade yet another country whose people were already suffering greatly?
There is nothing like a war to cause a lift in public opinion polls.
Is it Obama who will be held to account for the destruction of Libya or Gaddafi?
No doubt God will hold both men accountable but will he not also hold me equally accountable for going along with it?
Afterall, silence is assent.
Is Iraq any better for our intervention?
Is Afghanistan?
Will the people of Libya be giving thanks in a year from now for all the high explosives and depleted uranium we used to "liberate" them?
Shame on Russia and China that they did not use their power in the U.N. to prevent this.
Shame on me that I allow Obama to kill and injure countless people in my name.
Clearly the use of force against the people of Libya is nothing to do with being humanitarian.
If humanitarianism was of real interest to me as an American citizen, I would do more to prevent the genecide that has been going on in Palestine since 1948.
When it all boils down, it is me that supports each of these wars.
Are they not my tax dollars at work?
Is it because I claim to be a Christian and those being killed are only Muslims?
Soon it will be my turn to experience pain and suffering, and perhaps death.
Surely justice demands it!

How many Antichrists will there be?

One of the things that helps me make sense of prophecy is to not try to attribute all that I know or believe about the Antichrist as references to one man. What if there are several Antichrists yet to come? There have been several in the past. Look at the evil men that the antichrist system spawned during the time surrounding World War II.

By Antichrist I mean someone who is against Christ or someone who stands in his place.

A schismatic Pope or Antipope could be described as an Antichrist.
The Mahdi or Gog from Magog could be described as an Antichrist.
A political or military leader who seeks to dominate the world by means of  force could be described as an Antichrist.
None of these men should be confused with the Antichrist that Scripture tells us will come after the Millennium.

It seems that the antichrist system periodically throws up new Antichrists. It is especially powerful at this moment in history. Are we again on the verge of the appearance of several Antichrists at the same time?

The Mothers of the Apostles

Why is it that most of the Apostles had mothers with Greek names?
We know that Jesus found His followers in the area of Galilee.
The following is taken from the book "The Economy of Salvation" by Helen Tzima Otto. She credits her research to a book by Kharis Skarlakides published in 2005, called "The Forerunners of Jesus Christ: Apollo and the Sibyls."

"Our Lord Jesus began His ministry in the Galilee of the Gentiles, where He retired as soon as He heard of the imprisonment of John the Baptist. At that time, the Gentiles of Galilee were predominantly of Greek origin, considering that the entire region was a few centuries earlier conquered by the armies of Alexander the Great and many Greek settlers came there and remained after the land was taken over by the Romans. As far as the national background of the Apostles of the Lord is concerned, in the beginning of the third cenury of our era, the Bishop of Tyrus Dorotheos prepared their geneology, based on historical information still available at his time."

"It is shown in the Chronicon Paschale, that ten out of the twelve Apostles of Our Lord had mothers whose names were unequivocally Greek."

"Hieroclea the mother of James and John
Sophia, the mother of Philip
Rhea, the mother of Thomas
Ourania, the mother of Bartholomew
Eutychia, the mother of James of Alpheus
Kheirothea, the mother of Matthew
Ammia, the mother of Simon the Canaanite
Selene, the mother of Thadaeus
Joanna, the mother of Peter and Andrew"

"Bishop Dorotheos does not provide any information on the mother names for Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot. However, we know from other sources that Judas Iscariot was the only Jew in the group, the rest of them being from Galilee, not Judea, and possibly their fathers belonged to a different tribe (Benjamin, for example)."

I am amazed to know that many of the mothers of the Apostles had Greek names and gave their sons Greek names, eg. Andrew derived from the Greek word for man, Peter, the Greek word for stone or rock and Philip, the Greek for one who likes horses!

Looking For Wisdom In The Wrong Places

The Oracle of Kremna said:
"...wise ones will see that all this effort and hard work, is not worth a penny and that it leads to the destruction of the world, and instead of looking for wisdom in numbers, they will start to seek it in meditation." 

"When they start to meditate more, they will be closer to God's wisdom, but it will be too late, because the evil ones will already ravage the earth and men will start to die in large numbers."

The prophecy suggests that numbers, which I take to mean science, is leading to the destruction of humanity.
The antidote to numbers/science is suggested as meditation.

For me, the form of meditation that helps me most die to myself, is just being still and giving my undivided attention to God for twenty minutes.

Only by being still in the presence of God am I likely to attract the Indwelling Spirit who is so unimpressed by my intellect. When I meditate I find I have less desire to plan, control, struggle and achieve.

"...They Will Care More For Their Different Gadgets Than For Their Relatives."

The Oracle of Kremna said:
"The more people will know, the less they will love and care for each other. Hatred will be so great between them that they will care more for their different gadgets than for their relatives."
(I think "hatred" might be better translated as indifference. In my limited experience the opposite of love is not hatred but indifference.)

Why do so many families have two working parents?
Is it so the children can be better loved and cared for, or is it so the family might have more gadgets?

The problem with gadgets is that one never seems to have enough. To make matters worse, they are always being made obsolete and in need of replacement. Gadgets occupy one's time, time that might be better used caring for one's relatives.

It is a cliche, but do I own my gadgets or have they come to own me?

Do my gadgets allow me to spend more time with my family?

It seems from the prophecy that knowledge and love are inversely correlated.

There is a wise addage that suggests:
"People want to know how much you care before they care how much you know."

Where do I stand on the knowledge - care continuum?

Does knowledge lead to indifference?

What value has knowledge if it doesn't lead to wisdom!

When the Illumination comes will I just know that God exists or will I have wisdom about the things of God?

"The Earth Will Suffer Because of these Open Wounds"

"People will drill wells deep into the ground and dig out gold...
and the earth will shed tears of sorrow...
The Earth will suffer because of theses open wounds."
These are quotes from a Serbian seer, the Oracle of Kremna.(1829 - 1899)

"Only after many a summer people...will realize how stupid it was to dig all these holes."

"People will do many stupid things, thinking that they know and can do everything, not knowing anything."

How long is it going to be before we realize the harm we are doing to our home, the earth, in places like the Gulf of Mexico?

How long before we realize that when the earth cries "tears of sorrow" we all suffer?

How long before technologies such as "fracking" are recognised as harmful to our home?

This warning from the Oracle of Kremna, an illiterate Serbian peasant, is being ignored with each passing day.

How unstable has the earth's crust become from the many holes drilled in search of hydocarbons?

How many wounds are there on the sea floor from which hydrocarbons are spewing, contaminating the ocean in every direction. The Oracle called it stupidity but is it something more sinister?

When the Impact occurs will the geophysical effects be greatly magnified because of the holes drilled deep into the earth's crust?

Business has harnessed science and technology for the benefit of the shareholder. Science has become slave to the profit motive. When will we realize that greedy men will be the cause of our destruction?

Imagine if more of the effort that has gone into the use of science for profit had gone into the pursuit of enlightenment for our better understanding of why we were created!

The Mission of the Great Monarch

The mission of the Great Monarch, the Royal Messiah, from the House of David and the tribe of Judah, is to bring the world to Christ. The Russian Tzar and other monarchs will play important roles alongside Henri. As the future Emperor of Rome and Constantinople, Henri will cooperate with all who believe that Jesus, the Divine Messiah, is the Son of God.

The Royal Messiah also has a mission to the Jews and the Muslims.

Henri will be seen by Karaite Jews, those that place the Torah above all rabbinic writings, as their long awaited Messiah. It is believed that Henri's mother is a Karaite Jew. He will fulfill the Old Testament prophecies found in the Septuagint.

Henri will not be accepted by the Muslims, but notwithstanding that, he will be the instrument of their conversion to Christ working with the Angelic Pope.

Henri will lead ALL Christian denominations into the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. All will believe in the divinity of Christ and all will accept the Angelic Pope as Christ's Vicar on Earth.

What a day! What a cause for hope in days of war, flood, famine and destruction.

We must share the good news with the children. We must give them something wonderful to anticipate when all seems lost.

Unless God grants humans longer lives, which is one of the fruits of the Sixth Age of the Church, most of us above forty years of age, will not live to see this Golden Age.

Will the Emergence of the Mahdi Trigger the Appearance of the Great Monarch?

Although it might seems that the obvious answer is yes, there is another factor which must enter into the calculus. Prophecy suggests the Royal Messiah or Great Monach will appear when all seems lost and France has been invaded. There is however another event which preceeds the appearance of he who will save France and so much of the world.

Prophecy tells us there will be an astrological event preceeding the the coming of Prince Henri. The world is going to experience an Impact. An object from outer space will collide with planet earth and cause chaos of unimaginable proportions.

The Impact will occur in an ocean causing billions of tonnes of water to be pushed up into the atmosphere. The displaced water will not remain in suspension. For many weeks torrential rain will fall. Imagine an inch of rain per hour for a month!

How many regions of the world can survive?

How many growing seasons will be lost to the inundation?

It is time to think about how to prepare spiritually for the Impact. Lent is only a few weeks away. It might be a good time to reinstitute the traditional Wednesday and Friday fast. Fasting has many spiritual and physical benefits, all of which will be a blessing in the days ahead.

If, as I believe, Henri is currently living in obscurity and poverty, we could be in solidarity with him by offering our hunger pangs for his good health and the success of his mission.

Will the Mahdi Appear Soon?

It is clear that the people of the Near/Middle East are ripe for change. Current events in Eygpt and North Africa speak to the increasing discontent of many Muslim societies. There seems to be more than anger about rising food prices. No doubt many are being paid to riot but I doubt most are.

Israel must be terrified. Imagine an Eygpt with members of the Muslim Brotherhood in political power.
Equally concerned must be the many multinational corporations that prefer to deal with a greedy dictator like Murbarak, than representatives of the people. I read that America sends Eygpt more than one billion dollars a year in "Aid", of which $300 million is for Murbarak's own personal use. Imagine that!
How generous of the American taxpayers. Is it any wonder the budget can't be balanced.

What is it going to take for the Arabs of Eygpt, the Persians of Iran, the "Moors" of North Africa and the Turks to come together and present something approximating a united front to those manipulating them?

The Mahdi or Hidden Thirteenth Imam, is such a potential agent. Many Shia Muslims are anticipating his coming with relish. Could a Mahdi convince the Shia and Sunni Muslims to cooperate on the basis of, 
"My enemy's enemy is my friend"?

There are no obvious signs that the Mahdi is near but by definition he must remain hidden until a particular set of circumstances cause him to be revealed.

What are those circumstances? CHAOS!
The prophecies state that only when chaos rules can the Hidden Imam appear.

Time is running short. Those who are awaiting the emergence of the Mahdi can justify formenting chaos so that the Hidden One can be revealed. Are we talking months, years or decades? This writer believes we are talking months or at most, a year or two.

The first crisis has alrready begun in France. Economic collapse is on the horizon. The seer Marie Julie Jahenny said civil war will follow.

When the nominally Christian Europe and the nominally Muslim Near and Middle East are sufficiently manipulated, it should be propicious for the Hidden Imam to appear.

Why Ireland?

Today, I learned that the Irish have decided to resolve their financial/fiscal problems by printing Euros. Apparently this is allowed, provided it is first approved by the European Bank.
What a nice simple solution!

My first question is Why Ireland?

If members of the European Union can print money, why did Greece not do so?
Why are Spain and Portugal not doing the same?

I know one cannot answer a question with a question but...

I wonder how the Germans are going to feel when it becomes common knowledge that the Irish are printing Euros? Will they be relieved they are no longer be forced to bail the Irish out? Or will they be angry that the successor to their 'beloved' mark is being destoyed by the Celts?

A second question;
Is this dispensation afforded to the Irish, as a reward or a punishment?

Back a couple of years ago the Irish people were unwilling to support the notion of a European Constitution. The result of a national plebicite was no! Europe was check mated. Without an Irish yes, there could be no Constitution.

The Celtic Tiger started to falter. The Irish realized the bubbble was deflating or might indeed pop. A second referendum was organized and the Irish reversed themselves, saying yes by a small majority. A majority put the potential for continued prosperity before conscience.

End of problem?

It seems not.
The bubble popped.
The political leaders, putting the needs of the bankers paramount, all  offered to guarentee the assets of the Irish banks without counting the cost of what they were doing. The rest is history.

But, it seems the simple solution to National Debt is just to print one's way out of the disaster. Paper and ink are cheep. Can a $50 Euro note can cost much more that twenty five cents to print?

So, to return to the first question. Is Ireland being rewarded or punished for saving the European Constitution?  If punished, by whom?

As I ponder the questions, I am put in mind of an old legend about Ireland.
Saint Patrick on meeting God was allowed to know the 'end times' situation of  his beloved people. On finding they will lose the 'faith' before the end, he asks for a different outcome. The solution offered, is that before Ireland looses the faith, the Island itself will be inundated by the ocean and sink beneath the waves.
This is the good news for Ireland. I wonder what the good news is for the rest of the world?

"Me Thinks He Doth Protest Too Much."

Nicolas Sarkozy, the French head of state, was quoted this week as saying,
"We cannot accept and therebye facilitate what looks more and more like a particularly wicked programme of cleansing in the Middle East, religious cleansing."

On the face of it, one might conclude that Sarkozy was expressing indignation about the Coptic Christians killed in Eygpt celebrating the Orthodox Christmas or even the Christians recently killed in Iraq, while worshiping in a Catholic church.

Marie Julie was told that the first crisis would come about, when an evil man would come to power in France. She was told that he was not to be trusted depite professions of morality. Marie Julie was given a title for the man and there is little doubt in my mind that Nicolas Sarkozy is the best fit for the person in question. Is Sarkozy trying to forment religious intolerance or express true moral indignation?

France has a hugh population of North African immigrants who are at least cultural, if not pius, Muslims. Why would the head of state of of a country with ten million or more Muslim immigrants be making such comments? Has he been heard expressing moral indignation when Muslims murder one another during prayer in Iraq? It seems to me to be the ultimate in hypocracy, if not itself part of a "wicked programme" of propaganda.

In the same week, three executives were suspended at France's Renault for "unspecified ethical issues".   A French minister complained that  "economic warefare" was hurting French industry. Imagine that! How embarrassing that a WikiLeaks cable, just made public, quotes the head of a German satelite company as saying that France is the top industrial espionage offender, worse than China and Russia combined. Imagine that! German counter intelligence experts claim Germany will lose 30 Billion Euros or 30,000 jobs to economic espionage.

One wonders how long will Germany regard France as a partner in the European Union. Are not members of the union supposed to be political, economic and monetary allies?

From what was revealed to Marie Julie, it is unclear whether the first crisis is an accident, so to speak, or a deliberatley engineered event. If one believes that nothing in politics or economics occurs by sheer happenstance, then I am inclined to wonder if the first crisis will be brought about by the same "elite" that instigated the French revolution. It seems that Nicolas Sarkozy must be a member of their ranks, and as heaven advised, is not to be trusted.

The 599th Birthday of Saint Joan of Arc

The talking heads are adding their bit to global warming with their comments on the new version of Mark Twain's Huck Finn, from which the "n" word has been removed.

Today, is the anniversary of the birth of the Church's great saint, Jean d'Arc or Joan of Arc, as we English speakers call her. Being British by birth, there are some things of which I am ashamed but none more than the way the British hierarchy, secular and eccesiastical, treated their enemy Joan.

Being American by adoption, it is a source of some joy that my compatriot Mark Twain is the author of, what many agree, is the best biography on Joan. The fictional biography, "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc",  was originally published under a nom de plume. Twain was unsure how the work would be received under his own name. He claimed the work as a labor of love when he said,
 "Possibly the book may not sell, but that is nothing - it was written for love."
Quite a claim for an opus that he spent more than a decade researching and writing.

In days gone by, we celebrated the feast of the Epiphany on January 6. Today, Epiphany is a moveable feast and of late, it falls on the second Sunday after Christmas. We know so little about the Magi, not even how many there were. In contrast, we know so much about Joan and her contribution to France becoming known as the Elder Daughter of the Church. Given the key role that France will play in the restoration of the Catholic Faith, I would like to use this occasion to say ,"Vive le France and Vive the Maid".

2012, will be the six hundred anniversary of Joan's birth. Think about it!
How much France and the world owes Joan, yet how little does the average Catholic know about her. Give your children a treat by reading Twain's biography on Joan to them. It is both exciting and inspiring. Perhaps this is one way to help form the hearts of the young people Henri will need to accompany him as he rids the world of  God's enemies. I believe you can gain  more than a glimpse of Henri's character, in Joan. For example, Joan never shed her enemies' blood despite the engagements in which she fought. Henri's hands too will be free of blood, despite his many battles.

"No war may be waged in God's name"

These words are attributed to the Pope by someone defending him from a recent verbal attack by the former Grand Mufti of Egypt.

Marie Julie was told that when the Great Monarch is revealed he will enter France and make his way to Brittany where he will raise an army to drive out those who have invaded and occupied France, (the third crisis). Subsequently he will do the same in Italy before going to Germany to defeat the enemies of the Church in one last battle, often referred to as Armegeddon.

How will the Great Monarch be able to defeat the enemies of the Church if,
          "No war can be waged in God's name."?

Does the answer lie in the proposition that it is NOT sinful to injure or kill a person(s) who is trying to harm or kill you or someone you are responsible for? In order to prevent someone from committing a mortal sin, one may restrain or even use deadly force against the would-be sinner.

Will Henri's army consist of virtuous "soldiers" whose mission is to protect and preserve the life of Henri? Given such a mission they would not wage war in God's name but could kill those who will try to kill Henri.

Marie Julie was told that Angels will fight on Henri's side in battle. Could it be that Angels are better able to discern the intentions of Henri's enemies and will also restain or kill those who would commit mortal sin against him or his followers?

How does one recruit an army of supporters who are only allowed to use force to prevent the commission of sin? Not an easy task; only possible with divine assistance. Such an army would consist of loving people in whose hearts there is no desire to harm the enemy but to save him from damnation.

I wonder who and where are the Spirit-filled parents who are grooming their children in preparation for the appearance of the Great Monarch?

"This is an appeal to citizens, young and old, to take responsibility for the things in our society that don't work."

The above comment came from an essay, recently published as a book, by Stephane Hessel a former member of the French Resistance. Hessel has identified a number of issues about which he is indignant and invites other citizens to do the same. Hessel's essay is fast becoming a "best seller" with sales of one million copies predicted soon. No doubt it will be translated into many languages.
Hessel recommends peaceful and non-violent insurrection; interesting given his background in the Resistance.

Are there any issues about which you are indignant?
Is there anything that upsets you about which you are prepared to advocate insurrection?
The things that Hessel was indignant about were of little interest to me; but each to his own.

I wonder what are the things that God is indignant about today?
Is the Creator content with the behavior of the creatures, especially the human ones?
Is there a nation or group of people that one can look toward and confidently say the Creator must be content with them?
Is there a country whose citizens are a model to the rest of the world?
Is there a commercial enterprise that has the right motives?
Is there a charity or NGO one can say is admirable?

It was revealed to Marie Julie that her Creator was very unhappy with the people of France who had formerly been know as the Elder Daughter of the Church.
Not only had France murdered its King and Queen, but it had in large part turned its back on belief in Jesus as the Christ of God.
Mary Magdelene, her sister Martha and  her brother Lazarus, among others had brought the Good News to, what was then Gaul, shortly after the murder of Jesus.
Today, in France, belief in the Creator described by Mary Magdelen is all but dead, but a new community of believers has sprung up. It believes the Creator has no son, and that his last prophet was not in fact Jesus but Mohammed.

I am indignant that it is permissible to say that Jesus was not the son of God but it is not permissible to say that Mohammed was never his prophet.
How can such a dual standard be allowed?
Why are the people of France not indignant that such hypocracy is permitted?
I wonder is the Creator, if there is one, not indignant too?

Why is denial such a powerful defense mechanism or coping strategy?

If one denies the existence of God or a Higher Power that serves the same purpose as God, then one effectively make oneself God.

If one denies the existence of Satan or Lucifer, one has done so as a consequence of making oneself God and denying that God is opposed.

Most people who believe in God or a Higher Power, believe that God is good and has creation's best interests at heart at all times. Such people believe God does not abandon creation to evil or ill, even though evil or ill things happen.
Those who believe in God know that all that God allows is good or can be put to good use.
Those who have given it some thought, know that what one often terms good is bad and that what is often termed bad, is actually good.
In our subjective, self-absorbed states, we are unable to see things clearly in the light of the Spirit and we often confuse good and bad.

When one is in denial, it is often because acceptance requires one to re-examin what one is labeling good or bad. Given one is only able to select what one's will has labeled good, one must ask oneself, 
"Have I made a labeling error?"

Mostly, we are unable to admit to labeling errors and we therefore enter into denial.

The world is in a terrible state of degeneration, disaster and war. Political leaders are unwilling or unable to bring about improvements to the situation of the majority of those who have elected them or keep them in office. Everywhere one looks, things are getting worse. Corruption, degeneration, and conflict are the order of the day. In our hearts we know that if there is a God, and if it is good, it must surely intervene.

Things are going to get worse. It was revealed to Marie Julie that the first crisis would consist of economic collapse. There will be chaos in France as a consequence of the failure of the political/economic system. There will be a great upheavel of the social order and people will be disaffected and hungry. This is not something that is going to happen just to "bad" people. This is going to happen to everybody, with the exception of the ruling elite.

Everyone in France is going to suffer hunger and fear, the "good" and the "bad" together. Given that all people believe their behavior and actions to be "good", how does one explain God will allow"bad" things to happen to "good" people. It can't be explained and is therefore denied.

The first crisis will not be isolated to France. One is already seeing economic retrenchment in countries such as Iceland, Ireland and Portugal. When retrenchment or "austerity measures", as the ruling elite call them, bite hard enough, people will realize they have been in denial and have failed to take advantage of the breathing space that was provided.

Now is the time to ask oneself several questions:
     "If there is an economic crisis coming, how can I best prepare myself and those I care about?"

Another question might be:
      "If I am wrong and no crisis materializes what harm will have been done by preparing?"

Why not seek inspiration from the Spirit on the basis that an economic collapse is imminent, and only take those actions that will be beneficial whether the collapse occurs or not?

Timing of the Great Monarch


The Question many people have is:
When will the Great Monarch be revealed? or
Will the Great Monarch come in my lifetime or even the lifetime of my children?

Heaven has given a clear unambiguous answer to this question through the messsages given to Marie Julie.

She was told that immediatley preceeding the three crisises there would be a certain coming or event.
The event has already occurred and it is therefore resonable to expect that the first crisis has begun. Current events in France certainly support the notion that the first crisis has in fact begun. Marie Julie was told the first crisis would not be long in becoming critical.

How long is not long?
I anticipate the first crisis will reach epic proportions within a year or two, ie, 2011 -2012.
Given how quickly things came undone following the Lehman crisis, a year or two should be sufficient.

How can one prepare for the first crisis?
The best and preferred prepeparations are always spiritual.
By submitting to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit we will each know how best to prepare for ourself and those who may be dependent on us.

The impact of the three crisises will exhaust the physical resources of most people, so physical preparation isn't the answer. It would be a blessing to have a small-holding somewhere removed from the larger cities, where one could enjoy some measure of self sufficiency. This is an option for so few, I don't propose to dwell upon it.

Given the increasing unpredictability of the weather it is prudent to have on-hand at least a two week supply of food and water. The primary need is always for water! How can you secure an ongoing supply of potable water? It is for questions like these that we need supernatural inspiration.

Food and water should be supplemented by sleeping bags and camping gear that would allow ones loved ones to live at home or outside the home for for an extended period.
It is to be expected that most, if not all homes will lose access to public utlilities such as electricity and gas. How will you keep from freezing during the winter months? Don't be fooled into thinking that cold weather is not historically a problem where you live. The weather is changing. History will only be a rough guide to what we might expect.

If you or a loved one is dependent on a particular medication, now is the time to seek inspiratin on how to provide for that person's ongoing needs.

As in everything, a prayerful approach to the Spirit is the best advice I can offer. There is at least one answer to every problem and in my experience the Spirit will usually offer two so that one can make a freewill choice.

To repeat what I said earlier; no one can prepare physically for all that is to come. Even if one could, what good would it do to provide for our physical needs, if we are not prepared spiritually.

The greatest impediment to preparation is denial.
Denial will be the subject of the next blog.
