Are unvaccinated getting sick being around the Covid-vaccinated?
In memory of miguel de Portugal, who crossed the veil on August 9th, 2020

What kind of protection do the Covid injections provide?

According to German microbiologist Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi:  (1)(2)

They [the Covid injections] showed absolutely zero [benefit in the clinical trials],” he says. “This is the ridiculousness. People don't understand that they're being fooled and have been fooled all along. Let's take the one of these Pfizer trials: 20,000 healthy people were vaccinated and another 20,000 people were not vaccinated.

And then they observed, over a period of 12 weeks or so, how many cases they found in the vaccinated group and how many cases they found the non-vaccinated. What they found was that less than 1% of the vaccinated group got COVID-19 and less than 1% in the non-vaccinated group also got COVID-19.

The difference was 0.8 to 0.1%, which is nothing, considering the fact that they were not even looking at severe cases. They were looking at people with a positive PCR test - which as we all now know is worthless - plus one symptom, which could be cough or fever.

That is not a severe case of COVID-19. Any vaccination that is going to get authorized must be shown to protect against severe illness and death, and this has definitely not been shown. So, forget authorization. It can't be authorized, not by any normal means.

Now [the COVID injections do not have] full authorization, it's an emergency authorization, which again is absolute bullshit, since we know the infection fatality rate of this disease or virus is not greater than that of seasonal flu. John Ioannidis has published these numbers, which have never been contested by anyone in the world and cannot be contested.

If you are under 70 years of age and have no severe preexisting illness, you can hardly die [from SARS-CoV-2 infection]. So, there is no fatality rate that can be reduced.

Dr. Joseph Mercola comments on the words of Dr. Bhakdi:  (1)

While the COVID injections have been characterized as being somewhere around 95% effective against SARS-CoV-2 infection, this claim is the product of statistical obfuscation. In short, they’ve conflated relative risk reduction and absolute risk reduction. The absolute risk reduction is actually right around 1% for all currently available COVID shots.

..... In a July 1, 2021, commentary in The Lancet Microbe,3 Piero Olliaro, Els Torreele and Michel Vaillant also argue for the use of absolute risk reduction when discussing vaccine efficacy with the public. They too went through the calculations, coming up with the following:

* Pfizer/BioNTech - Relative risk reduction: 95%. Absolute risk reduction: 0.84%
* Moderna - Relative risk reduction: 94%. Absolute risk reduction: 1.2%
* Gamaleya (Sputnic V) - Relative risk reduction: 91%. Absolute risk reduction: 0.93%
* Johnson & Johnson - Relative risk reduction: 67%. Absolute risk reduction: 1.2%
* AstraZeneca/Oxford - Relative risk reduction: 67%. Absolute risk reduction: 1.3%

..... Aside from providing insignificant protection in terms of your absolute risk reduction, it’s important to realize that they do not provide immunity. All they can do is reduce the severity of the symptoms of infection. According to Bhakdi, they fail even at this.

And for people who are elderly and have preexisting illness, as we know from Dr. Peter McCullough and his colleagues' work, there are very good means and medicines to treat this virus so that the fatality rates go down another 70 to 80%, which means there is no ground for emergency use whatsoever.

..... I [Dr. Mercola] neglected to follow-up on his [Dr. Bhakdi's] comment about 40,000 people being equally divided between the injection and no injection groups in the COVID injection trials. A few months ago, they actually abandoned the non-injection arm of the trial, so no there is no control group anymore.

The justification was that the injection was too important to deny it to the control group. It’s just another sneaky way to skirt around reporting all the adverse effects occurring in the injection group.

That said, it’s worth repeating that the FDA can only grant emergency use authorization for a pandemic drug or vaccine if there’s no safe and effective preexisting treatment or alternative. Since there are several such alternatives, the FDA is legally required to revoke the emergency authorization for these shots.

(2) Bhakdi's Medical Credentials (quoting from the Source 1):

Bhakdi graduated from medical school in Germany in 1970. After a year of clinical work, he joined the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology, where he remained for four years as a post-doc. || There, he also began researching immunology. Eventually, he ended up chairing the department of medical, microbiology and hygiene at the University of Mainz, where he worked for 22 years until his retirement nine years ago. During that time, Bhakdi also worked on vaccine development, and says he’s “certainly pro-vax with regards to the vaccinations that work and that are meaningful.

To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate for Covid - A Clarification of Our Position

The Coronavirus Crisis (1) and the Universal Vaccination Campaign (2) fit perfectly with the purpose of very quickly and covertly carrying out the final steps of the One World Order agenda (3) that has been scripted decades in advance (4). The terrifying progression of the coercion on "vaccines" (5) to be the requirement without which no one can "buy or sell" (6) is the greatest confirmation of this.

The indoctrination and state of denial (7) of many is so persistent, despite the fact that the lies and incoherence of the official narrative are so great, that they would follow everything the authorities propose to them even if they were required to be literally branded with the number 666 on their hand and on their forehead with a big flashing luminous sign (8).

In this context, when we talk about technical aspects about the devices they call Covid "vaccines" - for example, if we compare natural immunity with the alleged immunity from the "vaccines", or if we claim that they are experimental (9) - it is not because we are considering the possibility of Covid "vaccination" as worthy of evaluation in case they were not experimental. It is because we want to illustrate the lies and inconsistencies that make the official narrative not credible.

Put another way: Even if it were demonstrated, and we were convinced, that the devices they call Covid "vaccines" cured the disease and did so with no harmful side effects, there would remain the problem that, clearly, curing the disease is the bait because those devices are designed for another purpose - that of being population control tools (10) - and we would still reject them (and the invasive tests designed for the same purpose).

If we expose the lies and contradictions of the Covid "vaccination" campaign, it is not to compare the advantages and disadvantages of being "vaccinated" or not. It is with the intention that those who have "eyes to see" see and understand the ultimate purpose of the plans while there is still time. If one believes that this ultimate purpose for Covid "vaccines" is real and not a fiction, one will not want to be Covid-"vaccinated" in any way.

Even so, we know this is hard to digest, and we understand that describing the problem as if we were comparing the advantages and disadvantages of being Covid-"vaccinated" or not may be useful to some people to buy time while they digest the terrible reality of the whole picture. Time is already short, however (11).

The meaning of "Turn to them the other cheek"

FROM OUR FILES:  July 30th, 2019

From miguel de Portugal

Let us examine a Gospel reading which is ignored from the pulpit and, logically, by the faithful while it harms the faith subconsciously:

From the NIV Bible

You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth. But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. [Matthew 5:38-41]

The reason that it is ignored is because it appears that Jesus is telling us to submit to evil. As a matter of fact, it appears that He is telling us to cooperate with evil, i.e. but if one strike thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other, etc.

Having attended public daily Masses from 1985 through 1998 [= 4,745 Masses] I have never heard an "Evangelizer" place the above message in perspective. Through the Grace of God we will do so for those who read our pages. To do so let us review other Gospel readings:

From the NIV Bible

If anyone causes one of these little ones - those who believe in me - to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.
[Mark 9:42-44]

From the second set of readings it is obvious that Jesus is not proposing to have our hands and feet cut off if one has the tendency to sin using/because of any one of them. Being that the only one who could ever cast the first stone [John 8:7] is the Virgin Mary, we are all sinners, then, if those requirements were followed literally, the Christian world would be full of humans without hands and feet.

Now, referring back to the initial Gospel readings which we attempting to clarify for the faithful....

What Jesus is telling us through Matthew 5:38-41 is precisely that: We are not to counter an evil act, with another evil act. What we are to do is what Jesus said elsewhere:

But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you:  That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.

For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? [47] And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.
[Matthew 5:44-48]

We pray that this apparent incoherence has become clear to all Christians who read our pages worldwide.

Digital tracking of people under the pretext of fighting Covid-19

From RS:

Many blessings. I found this to be very telling of our current situation:


A. Thank you for pointing out to us the existence of that bill, which we did not remember.

That bill, from May 2020, was not finally approved but, indeed, illustrates very well the intentions for tracking and monitoring all the people under the cover of fighting the Coronavirus - a plan which that bill intended to fund generously in USA and which, anyway, is being advanced worldwide as fast as the people accepts the needed indoctrination.

A little research/reading provides us with the basic details. In May 2020, in the U.S. Congress, the bill H.R. 6666 - "COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act" (1) - was proposed to fund $100 billion to track the entire population of USA as it relates to Covid-19 testing, the "infected," their contacts, and house arrest ("quarantine") of contacts, as well as "for other purposes".

The bill was widely protested by the public and by many media (2) and did not become law, but this only blocked a very favorable avenue for financing, not the plan as a whole. The get an idea of what such amount means: One hundred billion dollars is the size of New Jersey and Illinois' entire state budgets, combined (3). $100 billion in funding would be for Fiscal Year 2020 and "such sums as may be necessary for each of fiscal year 2021 and any subsequent fiscal year during which the emergency period continues" (1).

It is very interesting how God allowed this bill to receive the number 6666, as a hint for those with open eyes: it is the biblical number 666, whose biblical meaning we already know (4), and an additional 6 to underscore it. Plus, let us remember the hint of the word "Covid": Cov(ert) ID.

If anyone wants to get an idea of the current situation regarding digital monitoring of people with the pretext of the Coronavirus, you can take a look at this document: "COVID-19 Digital Rights Tracker", which collects data from around the world on digital tracking for Covid-19. (5)

(4) Revelation 13:16-18, "And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six." || Is the "Live Saving" Vaccine the Mark of the Beast?
(5) The multiple solutions and "apps" that exist for monitoring should not distract us from the fact that, in the end, only "the solution" that they have prescribed in advance will be allowed to succeed.

Caiphas, Annas - Francis and Benedict XVI

Did you know that...?

At Jesus' First Coming there were, technically, two high priests: Caiphas, who held the office nominally, and his father-in-law Annas, who had previously been high priest and was still a very influential person (1). Using today's language, one would say that Annas was the "high priest emeritus".

As we know from the Gospel accounts, although Caiphas was the nominal high priest, the influence of Annas over him and the Sanhedrin was so great that Jesus, after being taken prisoner, was sent first to Annas, and only later to Caiphas (2).

Now, two thousand years later, we have, technically, two "supreme pontiffs" as the visible head of the Temple Masters of today: Francis, who holds the office nominally, and the "Pope Emeritus" Benedict XVI, who has not ceased to have influence over Francis and the Vatican despite resigning from office, an influence demonstrated by the fact that he has not retired to live outside the Vatican.

The parallel could not be more exact.

(1) So influential, up to the point of still being named "high priest", as we read in Luke 3:2: "Under the high priests Annas and Caiphas; the word of the Lord was made unto John, the son of Zachary, in the desert."
(2) John 18:12-13: "Then the band and the tribune, and the servants of the Jews, took Jesus, and bound him. And they led him away to Annas first, for he was father in law to Caiphas, who was the high priest of that year."

"You shall not Kill" or "You shall not Murder"?

FROM OUR FILES:  October 21st, 2006  - Feast of Mary's Visitation

From WMP @ USA

Q. In reading your answer to one of the questions, you stated that God said "Thou shalt not Kill" ( obviously from the 10 commandments) and that "He gave no exceptions whatsoever."

My question: I have heard it stated many times on the radio from some very knowledgeable Jewish talk show hosts that the word "KILL" was mistranslated and should have been MURDER. "Thou shalt not murder." This can't be true from your answer to JL (1).

The radio hosts' argument seems very strong on the face of it, because if someone is going to try to harm me or my family or I have to go to war, I will do whatever is necessary to kill or be killed.

God has instilled a very strong will to survive in everyone. What do I or anyone of our fighting men do in this situation?

Thank you for this wonderful eye and ear opening site.

May God continue to bless you.


A.  Your kind words Glorify God.

Unfortunately, man is the "Master of Spinning the Facts" and, when it comes to circumventing the Laws of God, he shines brightly.

To kill, to murder, to commit a homicide [1st degree or 2nd degree], euthanasia, abortion, ad infinitum means only one thing: Taking an action which will cause/force the separation of the soul from the body; i.e. cause physical death.

The Roman Catholic Church defends "Just Wars" because they have to justify the atrocities they committed. The Jews and Muslims will Spin the Law their way for similar reasons, but, did you notice that when God freed His people from Egypt He reserved [for Him alone] the right to take away the life of Egyptians? Did you notice that Jesus could have led a most effective revolt against Rome and free His people from their yoke yet He did not?

It seems that as the Old Testament progressed, the Spin Masters started to justify anything and everything they needed to further their temporal agendas. Note that we do not find wanton killing in the New Testament. This is because its "writing period" was very short in comparison with the Old Testament. But not to worry - Rome took care of that by assuming Divine Powers and killing at will to further their very temporal agendas.

God IS the Master of Life and Death and woe to those who dare to assume such role.

About self defense? About war? Did not Jesus say through Luke 12:

6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7 Yea, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows. 8 And I say to you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God. 9 But he that shall deny me before men, shall be denied before the angels of God.

and through Luke 12:

16 And you shall be betrayed by your parents and brethren, and kinsmen and friends; and some of you they will put to death. 17 And you shall be hated by all men for my name's sake. 18 But a hair of your head shall not perish. 19 In your patience you shall possess your souls.

The issue rests upon our level of Faith. For the wonderful things that Jesus spoke about to take place in our lives, we must believe. This is what Faith is all about (2). This is why it is so important to pray for Faith since only God can give it. Most of the "Faith" we see around us is "intellectual faith" which will vanish at the first blow - just wait and see.

That we are "talking through our hat" (3)? Miguel's life (4) has been attempted against many times and the attempts will continue to fail until his appointed time comes. What security measures does he use? Simple common sense and "a very open ear to God" to make sure that he takes whatever evasive action God determines he must take in a particular case. In others - he knows nothing until after the attempt has taken place and God handled it without m de P's action. That this sounds unbelievable? Well, doesn't the resurrection of a dead body sound unbelievable too? It is just a matter of Faith and the "Power it packs."

What about those who go to war? "Father, forgive them for they do not know what they do." because we assure you, if a human being knew how serious it is to take someone's life, he/she would prefer to die in the other one's place. This is how bad we know (not believe, but know) it is.

Are unvaccinated getting sick being around the Covid-vaccinated?

From IW(1)

I seem to be having a reaction, [a light and temporary ailment,] after I have been around a vaccinated person [a member of my family] for a period of time, where we have talked, mask less, and maybe even given each other a hug. After visiting him for breakfast, I was kind of dizzy / off balance. Just not feeling myself. Then, [after some activity outside] I was just tired and wanted to rest. I am not sure what happened. I felt better the next morning.

This has happened before, and I just ignored it, but after reading the articles about vaccinated people making unvaccinated people sick, I reconsidered why I might have not been feeling well.

Most do not want to go back to wearing masks, but if by breathing the vaccinated are infecting the unvaccinated, that is a whole new ball game.

Any words or insight would be greatly appreciated.

IW (Initials Withheld)

Response (by Ricardo de Valencia):

Exposure to people injected with the Covid experimental vaccines (2) is causing effects on the health of some "unvaccinated" people. This is a fact already confirmed by some doctors (who have eyes to see and the courage to speak) (3) and attested by many people (4).

What is not yet clear is whether this phenomenon can be properly described as a viral infection. And this could be an important clue to the true nature of Covid-19.

Let's take a look to the following case described by a doctor (who is suffering in first person the symptoms she describes):

I’ve had the same dizziness and nausea every time I’m around a vaccinated person. It started in January when my aunt who was vaccinated visited the same day. I got a full body rash & severe body aches for days after consoling her while she cried after my uncle died (not vaccine related). I’ve also had irregular periods since then. The first one was for almost two weeks then I got two periods a month for two months. It’s so unbearable that I ask everyone the vaccine status before seeing them. I’ve begun to feel like a metal (vaccinated) detector. I’m also nursing a toddler & did throughout the ordeal. He developed a minor cold like illness with no fever & an unproductive cough; general malaise. I really hope the real science gets done & there are no lasting effects for myself or by young son. I am also trying for another baby. (5)

In this case (as in your case, if the proximity to the "vaccinated" is confirmed to be the cause of your temporary ailment), the way in which this phenomenon develops does not fit with a viral infection/contagion. It would be better explained if what we are seeing is some kind of re-initiated intoxication every time one approaches the injected ("vaccinated").

Think about this: If you get - let's say - measles for being in contact with a person who is sick of measles, you don't get the disease or the symptoms over and over again every time you visit him/her. You get it once and suffer the disease once. That's how a viral infection works.

Some kind of poisoning/intoxication could be one possible explanation for the repeated cycles of getting sick, getting well, when visiting the vaccinee. Your body is able to get rid of the supposed bio-chemical toxin until your body is exposed again to the "source". Also, if the impact from certain forms of electromagnetic radiation are involved in such transient effects/symptoms or apparent "contagion", the explanation would be more complicated but worth considering (let us not forget that, in some "vaccinated" people, magnets are able to get stuck on the arm in the zone of the injection - this is not a fantasy (6)).

Many people are identifying the "spike proteins" (the key molecules whose production in the body is triggered by the injection and which mimic similar molecules of the alleged virus) as the hypothetical "toxin" we are talking about. A heated debate is taking place as to whether or not injected ("vaccinated") persons can shed the spike proteins. Mainstream "fact checkers" are misdirecting attention by focusing on the claim that vaccines are not shed or that viruses are not shed as a result from the injection, but that does not rule out that the spike proteins can be shed by injected ("vaccinated") people. (7)

One step further, some mainstream "fact checkers" try to dismount the allegations saying that the spike proteins are short living (about two weeks). It may be so, but that does not prevent the fact that the injections (experimental vaccines) convert the body in a factory of spike proteins. Some experts have already alerted that whether or when this "factory" is switched off is not something we can take for granted (8).

Anyway, as a first step on this discussion, what we must not forget is that, whatever the cause or mechanism involved is, it is a verified fact that exposure to people injected with the Covid experimental vaccines is causing effects on the health of some "unvaccinated" people (3)(4)(5)(7).

If/as God allows, we will continue to write on this topic in the next For Your Information and Reference, as there is much information to process.


(1) Testimony partially abbreviated for simplicity and to preserve privacy

(2) The Covid-19 "vaccines", a big experiment with the world population. The CDC refers to the injections as "candidate vaccines" in their official documentation. This fact alone is enough to qualify those biological agents as experimental, not even proven to be real vaccines (still "candidates"). For that matter, and for the many doubts involved, we tend to write the words "vaccine", "vaccinated" and "unvaccinated" between quotes.

(3) In a roundtable discussion in April 2021, five well-known doctors analyzed this phenomenon (Video, 1 hour, 20 min.; published 22-Apr-2021; Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, Dr. Larry Pavlovksy, Dr. Carrie Madej, Dr. Christiane Northrup and Dr. Lee Merritt)

(4) Montana Daily Gazette: Testimonies reporting negative reaction to the experimental mRNA vaccines - even if they are unvaccinated (dated 16-Apr-2021)

(5) Dr. Rachel Leigh Bell in a forum in the website Medscape (as reported by Health Impact News, 11-Jun-2021)

(6) In some "vaccinated" people, magnets are able to get stuck on the arm in the zone of the injection:

(a) The Freedom Articles (12-May-2021): "A number of people are reporting, with video proof, that when they apply a small magnet to their injection site (usually the upper arm), right where they got injected with the Covid non-vaccine (which is a gene-altering device and not a real vaccine), the magnet is sticking!"

(b) Study on the electromagnetism of vaccinated persons in Luxembourg (6-Jun-2021), "Conclusion: It was found that vaccinated individuals do give off an electromagnetic field and that the earlier the individuals were vaccinated, the stronger the field they gave off. ... Individuals are interested in the experiment out of curiosity and then when they see that the magnet clings onto their skin, they become dubious at first, then they suddenly become cold. Some of them even become extremely nervous, even completely shocked."

(7) America's Frontline Doctors: "Patients who are vaccinated can shed some of these (spike protein) particles to close contacts" (dated 4-Apr-2021)

Can the unvaccinated get sick from contact with the vaccinated?‍
The vaccine produces many trillions of particles of spike proteins in the recipient. Patients who are vaccinated can shed some of these (spike protein) particles to close contacts. The particles have the ability to create inflammation and disease in these contacts. In other words, the spike proteins are pathogenic (“disease causing”) just like the full virus. What is most worrisome is that a person’s body is being suddenly flooded with 13 trillion of these particles and the spike proteins bind more tightly than the fully intact virus. Because of the biomimicry (similarity) on the spike, shedding appears to be causing wide variety of autoimmune disease (where the body attacks its own tissue) in some persons. Worldwide cases of pericarditis, shingles, pneumonia, blood clots in the extremities and brain, Bell’s Palsy, vaginal bleeding and miscarriages have been reported in persons who are near persons who have been vaccinated. In addition, we know the spike proteins can cross the blood brain barrier, unlike traditional vaccines.

(8) Dr. Larry pavlovsky in the above referred video (Note 3), minute 36:20, "We [the humanity] have no experience using and injecting synthetic messenger ARN genetic instructions as to whether or not our body is going to turn it on or turn it off as we start the factory of making the spike protein. And, so, there is no evidence, zero evidence, no scientific studies, as to whether or not that spike proteins turns on and stays on, or ever turns off."

In memory of miguel de Portugal, who crossed the veil on August 9th, 2020

FROM OUR FILES:  March 19th, 2010  - Feast of St. Joseph and 25th Anniversary of the Conversion of miguel de Portugal

From miguel de Portugal @ European Union and USA

It was on March 19th, 25 years ago, that I decided to seek supernatural (occult) assistance to lead a life that would have led my soul to perdition. Since all else had failed, the occult seemed to be the sure choice left.

It was literally then and there that God intervened in a manner that would change the course of my life and history. In one instantaneous flash – lacking a better adjective – I came to know God and His reality, and understood that my only purpose in life was to serve Him. All else – all that I had held dear my entire life - became unimportant and superfluous.

My journey (1) then commenced. The prescription drugs and social alcohol which were, an ample part of my diet (as they were, and still are, for more Americans than want to admit it), somehow, within weeks, were no longer necessary. Jesus and Mary became my Spiritual Directors (a functional title I did not even know then). They took me by the hand and we started, together, the walk Home.

Yes, I was a cradle Catholic. Nonetheless,  in spite of having a Cardinal Patriarch as a great-uncle and a truly devoted grandmother, I took the usual path: From the cradle to the Baptismal font; from the font to one year of catechism in a religious school and on to my First Communion.... then, out the door! Of course, my immediate family kept what people call "the tradition." They went to Church for the baptism, wedding or funeral of a relative or a business/social contact driven by "practical piety": What will people say if we do not go.

On spiritual matters, twenty-five years ago I was starting from practically zero.

I read and studied every imaginable book – good, bad and indifferent – covering spiritual matters that I could get my hands on. I became familiar with the workings and beliefs of many faiths (and anti-faiths), and timidly started praying. Eventually, I started attending an occasional Sunday Mass. These visits became more regular as I drank from the Living Waters.

After reading thousands of pages of spiritual related texts, the Holy Bible included,  I came to the realization that the Catholic Faith had, in its spiritual treasury, the greatest amount of revealed Truths. As I realized this, I began to daily attend the Holy Mass, and often sought the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Soon, I began to offer the prayers of the Holy Rosary and the Via Crucis, and offered Adoration of the REAL Presence of Jesus Christ in the consecrated host.

All of this took place in spite of, and not because of:

(a) My "Catholic friends" of my BC (Before Christ) life who "adored" me when I was the acting "King of the Pagans" (2);
(b) The false piety I found amongst the "Churchy" Catholics and other Christians; and, above all, in spite of....
(c) The clergy I encountered in the initial period of my "Christianization"... and thereafter!

Believe me, I could write a best seller book with the title: "The Sights and Scenes of My Journey - For Mature Audiences Only".

This is why I insist at every opportunity on making clear the separation between the Catholic "Faith" and the "Administration" of the Catholic Church. Just as Jesus said almost 2,000 years ago, today's Administrators  ....go round about the sea and the land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves. [Matthew 23:15]

If I had not met God directly, the experiences that I have had with far too many Catholics in the past 25 years would have rendered me as anti-Catholic as Saul (the future Paul) was anti-Christian. (This negative assessment applies, in particular, to the Catholic clergy) Had I not learned from God that the Catholic Faith contains more spiritual truth than any other, I would have declared myself an atheist (or chosen any other religion) rather than align myself with the Roman Catholic Faith.
Many have come back to the fold when they realize that there is indeed a difference between the Catholic Faith and the Administration of the Catholic Church.

As I now look back on those 25 years, I still have two overwhelming desires:

(1) Expressing my immense gratitude to God and our True Mother, Mary, through serving Them as He Wills it, and
(2) To be able to transmit to every single human being the reality of God, His Mercy and His Love.

These desires are like an inextinguishable fire burning in my heart.

Thank you for allowing me to share this joy with each and every one of you on this very special day. May it help you in your Journey Home.

(1) In retrospect, said journey started before my birth in Time but I was oblivious to it.
(2) My favorite phrase in those days was one ascribed to Marie Antoinette, wife of Louis XVI, when she was told that the poor of Paris did not even have bread to eat. Allegedly she said: Let them eat cake!
