In Luke 21:29-33 we read:
The 'denial set' will say: "He is talking about then and not about now. See, He says 'this generation shall not pass away, till all things be fulfilled'. 'This generation' means the generation of His time."
The proverbial other shoe falls when we continue into Friday's Gospel - Luke: 21:34-36:
He is not talking of Jerusalem where He was crucified and which was destroyed in 70 AD. He is talking about 'shall it come upon the face of the whole earth.'
He is talking about now and 'this generation'.
In His concluding statement in verse 36:
He could not make it any clearer. Where do you think I got the idea to recommend one and all to Pray, Pray, Pray and then Pray Some More to minimize the suffering of the Elect and the world hits bottom?
That is why I can declare with great confidence and peace:

As most of our readers know we have two documents (1)(2) which present the true Islamic faith in an even handed and just light. However, this does not mean that:
(b) The Western world - which has not been formed under the teachings of the Qur'an - must adjust its customs so that they are acceptable to the Muslim population.
Our position about immigrants or foreigners, temporarily residing in the US, has not changed since I was at Texas A&M University back in the early sixties. As I would tell my many foreign student friends: If you do not like how things are done here, either work within the system in an effort to make the changes that you deem necessary, or, pack your bags and go home!
I spend most of my time in Spain now. Their living schedule (sleep, meals, socializing) does not fit with what I have been accustomed for more years than I want to count. Solution - I live under UK time frame which meshes perfectly with the Spanish society scheduling. My wrist watch and all my clocks - computer included - show one hour earlier than it is in Spain. Now we mesh perfectly.
Spaniards tend to be loud and seem to all talk at the same time. To sit in a waiting room for me is very hard - I cannot even pray due to the raucous. Do I complain? No! This IS their country! I either wear earplugs or, in extreme cases, industrial grade silencing head gear. I do get funny looks at times but, what can I say?, the looks are free.....

In the Mass Gospel reading on the Solemnity of Christ the King [Mt 25:31-46] we hear Jesus explaining in no uncertain terms that:
'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.'
Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.'
'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.' And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."
Brethren, last October 13th was the 26th anniversary of my "being on the road" at His invitation. I have come across thousands of Christians on a personal basis, and millions have read our pages. Based on such experiences I can better understand and accept why only this many people will be left after the Tribulation.
It is a shame that so many individuals who claim Christianity do not even believe in His Words - much less act upon them.
On the positive side - we know that those who have never heard of Jesus or have been lied to about His Messianic reality, if amongst the Elect, will inherit the kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world.
All we have to do is offer prayers so that their suffering be kept at the bare minimum for they are fully innocent of their ignorance.
On the Gospel of November 25th [Lk 20:27-40] we read about the some Sadducees, who deny that there is a resurrection,
coming forward and asking Jesus about a woman who had become a widow seven times. They wanted to know whose wife she would be at the resurrection. Of course, even though that was a trick question by the Sadducees, if we asked most Christians today, with the best intentions, they may answer just as Jesus did:
But then, if we asked them: Which resurrection Jesus was talking about? The First or the Second? The Sacred Texts teach us that there will be two Resurrections.
They, in most cases, will stumble when faced with that question. In case you need to help someone with the right answer, you might want to refresh your memory about the timing of the First and Second Resurrections.
From miguel de Portugal
In a recently forwarded news report we addressed the fact that the Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill urged Russians to unite to prevent the second coming of Christ... and we commented:
At least he, in his own deranged way, is indeed identifying the times that we are living through.
We have a comment or two to add....
Kirill's reaction is unbelievable, specially when we remember Jesus' reaction when Peter tried to stop Him from going to Jerusalem where He would become the Sacrificial Lamb of God.
Secondly, the poor disoriented man cannot tell the difference between the End of These Times and the End of the World even though it is clearly explained in the Sacred Texts.
Instead of calling for action to minimize the suffering as the world hits bottom, as God has ordered me to do, he is really calling for lengthening the period of suffering and perversion by calling for a delay on the return of Jesus, which would then result in even the elect being deceived. [Matthew 24:24]
As you can see, as we have said before - It is not just the Roman Catholic Church where the smoke of satan has entered; it is everywhere!

The student's roommate, Kamil Jarzembowski, said he witnessed dozens of incidents, first denouncing them to seminary officials, and then in writing to cardinals and finally the pope in 2014. Church officials say internal church investigations were conducted, though initially not interviewing the boys in question, and the claims were determined to be false.

The parable in the Gospel of yesterday's Mass [Luke 19:11-28] closes with a very grim statement:
We are sure that such barbaric statement - when taken literally - has been used to justify innumerable atrocities by the "Evangelizers".
The real message is that those souls who have not accepted Jesus Christ as the Messiah (their king), at the Time of Judgment (before me) will not live (slay them) Eternally.
There is another gem in said Gospel which has been often used to abuse the poor for the benefit of the rich.
Jesus is speaking of faith and not material possessions. The more faith we have, the more we open up to God and, the more we open up to God, the greater faith will be given to us - as well as all that accompanies a faithful soul.
Those who have little faith and do not open up to God, the trials of the world will cause them to lose the little faith they had.

While searching into our files we came across of a letter and attachments sent to the Ambassadors of Japan, United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, France, and Portugal at their respective Embassies in Washington D.C. back in 1999. I had forgotten about such very important mailing, as well as the fact that the full Spanish version was also sent to the Ambassadors of the same countries accredited in Madrid, Spain, five years earlier in August 22, 1994.
Each letter, with the attachments, was addressed individually; that is, it was not a form letter type of mailing. May this be another reminder of our alerting, with plenty of time, those in positions of power, about what is upon us now.
The standard letter follows, as well as the link to the Table of Contents of the attachments which accompanied each letter.
U.S.A. - SPAIN
February 24, 1999
His Excellency [ambassador's name], Ambassador
[from Japan, United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, France, and Portugal]
Washington, D.C. 20XXX
Subject : The accelerating destabilization of the world.
Are we really approaching the End of These Times? Is man capable of auto destruction or is it some evil force who, separating man from good, is causing such destruction.
The purpose of the enclosed documents is to inform your government, through your Excellency, about what may happen in the near future. The interesting part of said documents is that the events in them, described from a Biblical and religious point of view, are totally coherent with a cold political and socio-philosophical analysis of the events developing in the world today.
This entire communication only seeks reflection and awareness. The value contained in the information in here transmitted must be individually sought and assimilated. It is not our intent to try to convince anyone. Each government must recognize on his own, by means of the intellectual and spiritual resources at its disposal, the situation his country finds itself in as one of the components of the nuclear keg into which the world has transformed itself in.
Unfortunately, most of the information that comes to us via the media has been processed and slanted by power brokers in order to manipulate our thinking. However, Beware!, these visible power brokers are frequently manipulated themselves by means of the official and, sometimes, supposedly privileged information that they receive, thus, in turn, they serve interests of those whose existence they are not aware. If it were not so serious a matter, it would be comical.
Respectfully presented by

Copies of letter and attachments sent to: Editor in Chief of: The Washington Post, Vatican's l'Osservatore Romano, Portuguese VISÄO and The Miami Herald as well as to Mrs. H. R. Clinton at the White House.
In a recent Mass the Gospel was from Luke 18:1-8. We are sure that our readers may have heard it read many times but we will bring it up today because the message is more crucial today than ever: If we persist in prayers, God Will respond in accordance to His Will.
He said, "There was a judge in a certain town who neither feared God nor respected any human being. And a widow in that town used to come to him and say, 'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.' For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, 'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being, because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.'"
The Lord said, "Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says. Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them? I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
The only delay in the manifestation of our request will be caused by God's rearranging matters in order to correct whatever mess we have made before we asked for His help.
However, the problem the world is facing today regarding prayer may be found on the last sentence of the the reading.
At the time when prayer is most needed in the history of mankind is when the level of faith - thus the desire and will to pray - is at its lowest.
From Kirill @ Patriarch of the Orthodox Church in Russia
In a public speech in the main Moscow cathedral, Patriarch Kirill said the signs from the Book of Revelation are now apparent. He also called on politicians and ordinary citizens to unite and stop the movement towards the abyss. (1)
Comments: As we have often said using slightly different words: "You have to be blind not to notice the approaching awe-inspiring moments in history that the apostle and evangelist John was talking about in the Book of Revelation."
Patriarch Kirill is the first head of a major church to finally acknowledge the truth. This is consoling to us since we contacted his predecessor many years ago with the appropriate information which also resulted in greatly limiting the Opus Dei activities in Russia. The same can be said of China - that is why the traffic from China to our pages is only second to that of the U.S.
All of this is possible through the Grace of God manifested through those who extend a helping hand in our fulfilling of His Will.

Have you heard about.... an Italian parish priest that Francis and his minions are using to remind one and all not to contest the Vatican?
We have made this communication into a guest document instead of including it in this mailing because it contains a YouTube video which may not travel well as an e-mail. The introduction of the document read as follows:
Although we do not agree with every statement Don Minutella makes in this video declaration - for example he continues to refer to the Roman Catholic Church as our Mother when Mary, and only Her, is the Mother of the Mystical Body of Christ which, in turn, is composed of all Christians who are striving to live His Word - Don Minutella's core messages on where "we are at now" are on target.
For those who do not know us - we uphold the Catholic Faith, it is the Roman Catholic Administration we summarily reject with the noted exceptions.
Let us pray so that other priests join Don Minutella and stand up and proclaim - as we have been doing for 19 years - that is is God Whom we must obey and not man [Acts 5:29] - and then live it.

The Gospel of yesterday's Mass - Luke 17:26-37 - is quite applicable today but, at the end, it may leave the faithful in a state of suspense. Let us review it:
So it will be on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day, someone who is on the housetop and whose belongings are in the house must not go down to get them, and likewise one in the field must not return to what was left behind.
Remember the wife of Lot. Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it.... there will be two women grinding meal together; one will be taken, the other left." They said to him in reply, "Where, Lord?" He said to them, "Where the body is, there also the vultures will gather."
All is quite clear until we read the last two sentences: "They said to him in reply, 'Where, Lord?' He said to them, 'Where the body is, there also the vultures will gather.'"
Jesus' answer simply makes no sense as written. Now, let us change just one word and the message will become crystal clear:
Now it makes sense. 'Where the body is, there also the vultures will gather' convey the same message as the commonly used 'Where there is smoke there is a fire' .
That is - the gathering of vultures is a sure sign of the presence of a (dead) body and so are the signs that will be everywhere just before His Second coming.
Jesus has used the "sign of the times" to wake us up several times. Just recently we read in the Gospel:
It seems that the original translators of Luke 17:37 mistakenly read or translated the word "when" as "where" - just as they did with the statement 'Where the body is, there also the vultures will gather' which, in Matthew 24:28, reads as follows:
One says vultures and another says eagles.
Another Biblical Mystery solved and our message is, once again, confirmed:
Remember, dear ones.... We are not selling survival supplies. We are giving away the means to minimize the upcoming suffering for which there is no escape, although the intensity can be reduced on an individual basis.
From (Mrs.) LM @ US
I just wanted to drop you a note about the effects of our focused prayers. You have sent us some confirming "Winks from God" and I think we have another one.
Our group prayers are, "...on behalf of all those who are suffering throughout the world as a result of our greed and iniquities..."
Well here in the US., it seems the floodgates have opened up on unacceptable behavior of men toward women men, and in some cases, teenage girls and boys, in the Entertainment Industry and Government since Harvey Weinstein's allegations were revealed.
I don't think a day has gone by without a report concerning another individual. All of this cannot be false. If this is coming out and those people repent, great. If they are giving just hollow, "I am sorry's", they missed the point.
A. Good to hear from you. We have missed your correspondence.
Yes! You are right! That IS a major Divine Wink and benefiting a situation that is on the top of our "to correct" list.
Even if those who may miss the point will think twice before doing something like that for the first time or again.
If people were aware about how damaging is to wound the sexual aspect of a human being, a greater effort would be placed in preventive education. Conversely, since God has given satan a free hand as we approach the End of These Times, anything and everything that could damage the sexual aspect of a human being is being done and promoted.
In Spain and Portugal the physical (not sexual) abuse of women has been added to the sexual abuse, and the situation is dismal. It could be stopped on its tracks if those who are trying to stop it were able to think.... but they - as most on the entire world - are unable to.
All that the authorities have to heavily promote is the reality that a man who physically abuse a woman is a pathologically insecure male and psychologically castrated. Once a potential abuser has been pre-labled as such, he will think hard and long before he physically abuses a woman, thus making public his condition.
Now, going back to those men who - in position of power - try to take sexual advantage (read abuse) of females under/subject to them. They are also a pathologically insecure. A secure male does not need a position of power to get the attention of a female.
Understand: A shy man is not a pathologically insecure man - there is a tremendous difference between the two. We are not referring to a character trait as being naturally shy - we are referring to an emotional/mental disorder.
Let's keep on praying on behalf of "...all those who are suffering throughout the world as a result of our greed and iniquities..." We owe it to them!... actually, we owe it God!
Now, let enjoy another Divine Wink which we believe, for a number of reasons, that actually took place.
From Mr. JB @ US
Please find enclosed.... You had mentioned that your monthly insurance premiums had increased by $70 per month. I've .... to help with this the best I can.
Thank you for trust in sharing the information you recently e-mailed me. Having...., you have a unique perspective concerning the folly of Mammon's illusions of power and wealth.
Unfortunately, the people at the top of the US government and security services are also susceptible to Mammon's lure of money, power and self-righteousness. It is only through God's Mercy and Grace that we can overcome our individual and collective brokenness and love one another as He's asked us to.
It will only be through God's intervention that His plan for humanity will be fulfilled. I pray that He will have mercy on His Elect as we move forward in time.
A. First of all, Thank you! for your continued, most welcome and needed material support. Few have the vision that you do and the sensitivity to our material needs to keep on going as God Wills it.
To you, and the precious few who extend a hand to us, goes the credit for our reach on a worldwide scale.
How many End of Times Christian ministries can claim that 13 % of North Korea unique internet users visit their pages?
To place this in perspective, North Korea has 1,024 IP addresses while the US has 1,541,605,760 IP addresses (1). That is, if 13% of the US IP addresses visited our pages, that would be over 200,000,000 visits from the US per month.
Of course, we have visits from essentially every nation in the world (some of which I did not know existed!) and Spanish speaking readers are downloading between 500 and 600 copies of Msgr. Straubinger's full New Testament (2) that we have on-line.
Without counting Msgr. Straubinger's New Testament, the total downloads in four page equivalent documents hovers around one million per month. All of that is to your credit and that of those other who lend us a hand in fulfilling the Will of God.
With that said and our gratitude publicly expressed, let us look at your comment "Unfortunately, the people at the top of the US government and security services are also susceptible to Mammon's lure of money, power and self-righteousness." in the light of yesterday's Mass first reading - Wisdom 6:1-11. Focusing on the the first five verses....
Tragically most Christians only give lip service to their Christianity and act accordingly, so those who fit in "kings" category "...will suffer sudden and terrible punishment. Judgment is especially severe on those in power. " Much more so than the lowly "For the lowly may be pardoned out of mercy" [Wisdom 6:6]
Which brings us to why we must continue to pray much for those who fit the "kings" category since there are some still blind and deaf members of the Elect in that category and only prayer can reduce their "...sudden and terrible punishment" and mitigate their judgment which will be ".... especially severe on those in power."
(2) About Msgr. Straubinger's Translation (in Spanish)
From Mrs. LC @ US
My daughter is very appreciative of your prayers. I was forgetting to tell you.
I’ve said this to you before, but I want to say it again. If I listened to myself, I would be sending you a comment on just about everything that you publish.
So very thought-provoking and spiritually enriching beyond words are these publications! You truly are the Best Teacher in the Ways of our God in these difficult/crazy times we live in. You "tell it like it is" and have no qualms about stepping on so-called high and mighty toes. Just like Jesus did.
Thank you for continuing to be such a profound inspiration to me, and I have absolutely no doubt, for countless others as well. Only when you are with Jesus in Heaven, will you truly be able to fully understand the impact you have had on not just me, but on all those many unknown others as well.
Prayers and sacrifices continue on your behalf.
A. Thank you so very much for your kind words of encouragement as well as for your prayers and sacrifices on behalf of our service to God.
Regarding your statement "You 'tell it like it is' and have no qualms about stepping on so-called high and mighty toes."..... I am just following His instructions, just as Jeremiah did:
As God Wills it - and I am able to - we will continue to make sure that the Elect have as brief a stay in Purgatory as possible while, at the same time, making sure that those who are not destined for Heaven have no excuse before the Throne of God. If 13% of the North Korean internet addresses can visit our pages, anyone in this plant should be able to do so too!
In yesterday's Mass the Gospel Acclamation was:
And Jesus said through Matthew 5:16:
And He also said through Luke 11:33:
Didn't He also say through Matthew 6:6:
Although in passing - as many Biblical texts are read, and heard in Mass - it may sound contradictory and confusing, yet is perfectly coherent.
As we often state - the most powerful Evangelization is by example, which brings us back to the initial Gospel Acclamation.
The light from the bright star - the offering of the word of life - is simply living, without fanfare, the Word of God - day in and day out. Those around us will notice our different behavior as well as the good results, and the still disoriented members of the Elect will take notice and soon will begin doing the same. We can preach until we "are blue in the face" but is through the striving to live the Word of God - day in and day out - that we draw others to God.
This applies too in the professional field. Somehow my clients in the Engineering as well as in the Gemological fields quickly discerned that they could trust me, and only one out of hundreds questioned my professional fees.
Was that as the result of any merit of mine? Of course not! I did not come up with the laws to live by; God did... and they always - ALWAYS! - work and produce the best possible results.
Which brings us to the explanation of the key:

Have you heard that.... and alegedly mystic Rabbi announced that: "Very Soon Messiah Will Be Revealed to Everyone" (1)
"Messiah is at work right now," Rabbi Ben Artzi said in a sermon. "Jews, be happy! Very soon, the Messiah will be revealed to everyone!"
The rabbi went into detail, explaining how this would come about.
"The Holy One, Blessed be He, will come to the rabbis in a dream with a vision and inform them of whom He has chosen for the King Messiah," predicted Rabbi Ben Artzi. "The Creator will write to them exactly, whom He has chosen as King Messiah."
This singular revelation was accompanied by details.
Comments: An interesting mixture of the beliefs of those who are expecting Maitreya and the Catholics who are expecting a Holy King and Holy Pope to restore everything.
I am so glad that all we have to do is prepare His Way just as it was announced through Malachi 3:1, and just let Him return as the angels announced through Acts 1:11:
God needs 'gofers' and not stage managers.

Once again I am shocked and horrified as I read the end of yesterday's Mass Gospel and the beginning of today's Mass Gospel [Luke 16:8-9]. We will reproduce below the verses from various Bibles so that you understand our reaction and then make crystal clear, through His Grace, what Jesus meant.
Reading according to the bible used by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
Reading according the Douay-Rheims Bible
Reading according to New Internationl Version
What those awful translation are telling the already disoriented faithful is: Be as crooked as the dishonest steward and then buy your way to Heaven through deception.
The message that Jesus delivered is - as should be expected - diametrically opposed to the blasphemy approved by the "Evangelizers".
First: Jesus rightfully highlighted the reality that the people of the world are more prudent/smarter/wiser that the children of light. In this commentary are two very important mystical messages. One - He is confirming that the predestination of the soul (Heaven or hell) is a reality; Two - He is confirming that the children of the light (the Elect) are not being properly educated in their faith by those who are responsible of doing so - that is why they are not as prudent/smarter/wiser as the children of Mammon.
Secondly: He instructs us to use the money that we may have - necessary to be able to function in the world - to do good deeds - not bad deeds - thus securing a blissful Eternity.
As we have said many times - money is not evil. What is evil is to be ruled by money - in politically incorrect language that is: to be prostitutes by selling our selves for money. However, if we use money legitimately gained to do good to those in need, then we are turning an potentially evil tool into a ticket to Paradise.
And that is the truly Golden Message form our dear Lord and Master, Jesus, the Christ - Whom we must adore and obey instead of adoring and obeying those for-profit Evangelizers.
Have you heard that... Facebook asks users for naked photos to combat ‘revenge porn’? (1)
The Australian Office of the eSafety Commissioner announced they were partnering with the social media giant last week on a pilot scheme that will allow anyone to report sensitive images being shared online without their permission.
The eSafety office, .... will then notify Facebook, who will use image matching technology to stop those images from being uploaded to Facebook, Messenger, Facebook Groups or Instagram.
Comment: Frankly, we just do not what to say other than this is just another indication of how murky the human intelligence already is. We cannot determine what is more stupid, the idea/proposal by Facebook or the people who fall for it. Maybe it is just a tie.

Did you know that... a leaked German military document predicts EU collapse and rise of pro-Russian ‘Eastern bloc’ by 2040?
A secret Defense Ministry paper leaked to Spiegel magazine has shed light on Berlin’s main concerns about the breakup of the European community, a scenario apparently feared in most Western capitals. Entitled ‘Strategic Perspective 2040’ (Strategische Vorausschau 2040), the 102-page policy paper imagines six scenarios that strategists in Berlin deem plausible.
Comment: First of all - assuming no Apocalypse and 'business as usual' forever - with the tremendous technological advances the world is experiencing from month to month and the (man made) rapid collapse of the current world order in the name of 'freedom of everything', no one can predict with any level of accuracy where the world will be at politically and/or financially in just one year - much less 23 years in the future. What a joke!
But there is a "method in their madness". That is one way for Germany to strengthen their European leadership with the final objective of controlling it more than they already do: By identifying one concrete European Union enemy - Russia.
Fancy that.... it just happens to be the same concrete US enemy the Globalist in the US have fabricated using Mr. Trump as its corner stone.
And the Zombie-fest continues!

On January 31st, 2014, we published a document (1) where we spoke of an upcoming G2 Cloud encounter with our Galactic core
with total unpredictable consequences - one of them could have a been a Gamma Ray Burst which could have seriously affected life on Earth. A possibility that we already addressed - in very general terms - in a prior document (2) published on October 13th, 2011.
Well it seems that miraculously - because science has no idea how it could have happened - the encounter did not result in anything that could have been detrimental to life in our Galaxy:
Another 'Divine Wink' as an encouragement for more prayers? We let you, with the Illumination of the Holy Spirit, decide. I have made my evaluation already with the result of increased prayers. A single day of delay is one less day of intense suffering.

In yesterday's Mass Gospel [Luke 14:25-33] we read:
he cannot be My disciple.
Obviously what is meant by "hating" here is placing them second to Jesus.
This is literal if we understand our "own cross" as to the difficulties we were born with, acquired in our formative years, and later. By the way, that is not a sacrifice as many may think. If we carry our crosses in the manner He taught us - that is, following Him - they would not be as heavy.
Here again, the issue is placing Jesus first and above all - not only above one's father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life but also above one's possessions. You do not have to give away your possessions; you are to use them in accordance to His Will for the benefit of all..... without becoming enablers.
On the Mass Gospel of November 7th [Luke 14:12-14] we read:
Obviously the message is not that we shouldn't invite friens and relatives for a social event; the message is that we should not do good to others just because they can pay us back.... and we hope that they do.
Taking it one step further.... if you invite a wealthy neighbor to a social event - not because he is wealthy and would beneficial to you but just as an act of fraternal love - that is perfectly acceptable to God.
Considering the reality that God can read our hearts better than we can read an open book with large print, every act consonant with His Word will indeed be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.
But there conditions do apply.... If we do something because we will indeed be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous and not because of our love for God and for our neighbor as ourselves there is a difference. We are sure that there will be a reduction in the 'payment' at the resurrection of the righteous.
In today's Mass Gospel [John 2:13-22] the key message is delivered by the following verses:
Granted, we have not seen oxen, sheep, and doves for sale in churches and in Marian Sanctuaries, however, we have seen more than enough profit generating activities in them to make the temple merchants of Jesus time envious.
That is another key message missed by the "Evangelizers".... but not just from the Catholic Church. This message has also been missed by the Administrators of all major Christian institutions.
We have one question that applies to the multitude of similar situations found in Christendom:
And, on top of that, kept lining the pockets of the Administrators going against the fundamental teachings of Jesus.
We have a general answer for that general question:
Just another reminder to our readership so that no one is surprised as to what will be left of the 'Almighty' Christian institutions.
3 For perverse thoughts separate men from God, and when His power is tested, it convicts the foolish; 4 because Wisdom will not enter a deceitful soul, nor dwell in a body enslaved to sin. 5 For a holy and disciplined spirit will flee from deceit, and will rise and depart from foolish thoughts, and will be ashamed at the approach of unrighteousness.
6 For wisdom is a kindly spirit and will not free a blasphemer from the guilt of his words; because God is witness of his inmost feelings, and a true observer of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue. 7 Because the Spirit of the Lord has filled the world, and that which holds all things together knows what is said;
Read it carefully. Allow it to penetrate your very being because that IS exactly how "the system" works. This one of those situations where I tell you - without the slightest doubt - that I know it to be true, not just believe it. Know its reality from decades of living experience.
Regarding "a kindly spirit and will not free a blasphemer from the guilt of his words" - remember, we are not dealing with a vengeful God any more than we are dealing with an evil force of gravity. When spiritual and physical laws are violated, there is collateral damage which can only be tempered by the Mercy of God when it is appealed for with a humble and contrite heart.
Now then, if we incorporate the above Wisdom into our every breath, all will always work out for the best. All!
The Gospel was from Luke 17:1-6 and the part we wish to heavily underscore are verses 1-3:
What causes "people to stumble" is scandal; giving the wrong message through a poor example. This applies to everyone from the head of a religious institution to the least of the faithful. We must strive to live the faith we proclaim by word, deed and example. That is the most effective Evangelization method. The consequences of duplicity could not be better explained than Jesus did: It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.
Let us take an unimpeded-by-a-beam look (Luke 6:42) at ourselves and eradicate from our behavior anything that would cause scandal.
1917 - Russia's Bolshevik Revolution took place. The provisional government of Alexander Kerensky was overthrown by forces led by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin.
1944 - U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt became the first person to win a fourth term as president.
1973 - The U.S. Congress over-rode President Nixon's veto of the War Powers Act, which limits a chief executive's power to wage war without congressional approval.
2000 - Hillary Rodham Clinton made history as the first president's wife to win public office. The state of New York elected her to the U.S. Senate. (New York)
2016 - Twenty four hours later Mr. Donald Trump was elected President of the United States - to his own surprise and that of many.
From miguel de Portugal
There is a rather complex situation being experienced by a reader very close to The M+G+R Foundation. She wrote a two page letter with Confessional type of material. Obviously we cannot use the letter but, with her full permission, we can publish our succinct response to her.
The reason we want to publish it is because we believe that it contains information that is seldom addressed from the pulpit, yet it is very important that is brought on to the light for the benefit of all. There may be some parts of our response that may not make sense to some of our readers because it answers questions taken out of context from a full two page letter. Just ignore such part(s).
Be aware that there is no room for questions from you regarding Part 1, for they will not be answered.
However, there is plenty of room for questions from you in Part 2, should they arise.
You state: "I felt strongly at the time that there was someone close to you (in your “inner circle,” so to speak) who is not trustworthy, and who, given a chance, would not hesitate to become a liability to you. "
You are almost right in your evaluation of the situation. However, the individual is a man, I know his name and what triggers your anguish is indeed real - a highly dysfunctional jealousy of which you are the object.
The individual is not close to me but is very much aware of me - as much as someone from my "inner circle" would be. Indeed, he would try to harm me if he could. Of course, it would not be wise for him to do so since the seriously negative consequences would be automatic without myself even being aware of them.
The answer to the situation is being Perfect as the Father is perfect. There is no power greater - or even close to - the power of God, Who Is Love.
No hex nor spell nor incantation can withstand the power of God - LOVE - manifested through prayer and wielded with charity and compassion. The human which is being used by the evil one does not have to be told about it or even spoken to, but if we must deal with him/her it must be done with charity and compassion - but without becoming enablers.
Therefore, the remedy is to pray much for the conversion and well being of the individual. You do not need to know who the man is, God knows. What those prayers will do, in accordance to the Will of God is: (a) his conversion, thus deactivation of such deranged jealousy; or (b) completely neutralize any negativism coming from him; or (c) God simply takes him away through the veil.
We, of course, will also pray for him.
If you follow the Spiritual Direction clearly stated in Part 2, the matter will be resolved.
End of our response.
The Gospel for the Mass of All Saints read as follows:
And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day." [John 6:37-40]
The above message - and similar ones which may be found elsewhere in the New Testament - combined with many of the prayers in the Roman Misal may give a false sense of security to Christians, in general, and Catholics, in particular.
The New Testament readings should be properly explained in the homilies - something that is seldom done at Catholich and Protestant churches alike. But how?
As we often do. For example....
To "come to Him" and to "believe in Him" means to strive to live Him - the Word of God. It is not just a matter of "signing up" at a any Christian church and tell everyone that one is a Christian.
The prayers in the Roman Missal just confirm those misconceptions by implying that all who "sign up and go through the motions" are saved - something that is a lie and will result in suffering for those who are destined to Heaven.
We will explain that again using the same Gospel reading.
Jesus says "Everyone that the Father gives me will come to me" but what is not clarified to the faithful is that those who were given to Jesus by the Father are the members if the Elect.... those who are already in what we call Heaven - Eternity.
Therefore, those who the Father gave to Jesus but who are not striving to live Him - the Word of God - as the result of false sense of security (Hey!, I am a Christian, I've got it made!), will have much to suffer here and in Purgatory.
It is our - mine and yours - duty to explain that to anyone who will listen.
Now, let us explore why none of that is made clear in most of the homilies and in the Mass prayers? Simply because is not good financial business. People want to hear that they can adore Mammon and yet make it to Heaven with no problems and they are very generous towards any preacher and church who peddle such lies.
Why do you think that in spite of being on line for 19 years we receive barely enough donations to keep on going? Because we call it like it is, and only those who have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear want to invest in getting the truth out and minimize the suffering of the Elect at either side of the veil.
Do you think the masses who are submerged in denial want to hear...
That the "gate is narrow"?
Such is life.... and such is death.
Rejoice! Our judgment, tempered by Divine Mercy, is based on how hard we truly try to live the Word of God and not on how far me managed to get, in spite of our sincere efforts.
Have you heard that... according to Japanese TV, 200 are feared dead after tunnel collapses at North Korean nuclear test site?
The collapse at the Punggye-ri test site on Oct. 10 occurred while people were doing construction on the underground tunnel, Japan’s Asahi TV reported, citing a source in North Korea. The television station also said North Korea’s sixth nuclear test on Sept. 3 most likely caused the tunnel to crumble and created serious damage in the region.
Comments: Although the way the full news report is composed one may tend to disregard the news as Japanese propaganda, however, we believe that is true. About two weeks ago China - without mentioning any particular event - commented upon the dangers of such a disaster happening as the result of nuclear tests. It is now obvious that the October 10th collapse had already taken place and they were voicing the concerns, in a subtle way and beyond their own borders.
In any case, we can see that the double collapse was allowed by God to delay their much announced - in threatening terms - further testing which, in turn, has delayed the nuclear conflagration, thus reducing the suffering among the Elect.
Let us continue to pray!

From (Mrs.) IW @ US
Since I am teaching my sister the rosary and about Catholicism and you have said that Catholicism holds the most truths, I was wondering what are the other truths that Catholicism doesn't hold? I would like to be as in tune with God as much as is possible before the Final Judgment. I have much to pay for in Purgatory. I am trying to live God's word daily.
A. Your question - as always - is very valid.
We state that The Catholic Faith is the one Faith which has the greatest concentration of Divinely Revealed Truths which is, of course, true. However, the statement may lead to confusion as it did in your case. Therefore we have rewritten it differently - as follows:
No other Faith has as many and effective means to benefit from those Truths in its Spiritual Treasury as the Catholic Faith does. Be it the reality and validity of the Seven Sacraments; be it the validity and practice of Indulgences; be it the reality of Purgatory; be it the truth about the Immaculate Conception and Assumption of Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ, True God and True Man; be it the Petrine Ministry; etc.
It is a tragedy that such immense Spiritual Treasure has been squandered by the Administrators
of the Catholic Faith in their pursuit of material treasures over the last 1,600 years of
history at the expense of not fulfilling the Command of
He Who established it, Our Lord and Master Jesus Christ.
If such immense Spiritual Treasure had been utilized in the manner it was intended to, the world would not be in the condition it is at the beginning of the 21st Century.
Thus, the problem has never been in the basic dogmatic teachings of the Catholic Faith; the problem resided and continues to reside in the controlling Administrators of such treasure.
Now, two examples regarding some 'inside' information that the Catholic Faith does not have, but the guidance of its teachings regarding them is correct:
Regarding how to be more in tune with God? Well, "Mother knows best!"
Pray the three mysteries of the Rosary daily; offer the Chaplet of Mercy daily - preferably as one approaches the hour of His expiration; if possible accompany Him at that very moment; offer reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus every Friday (not just the first Friday) and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary every Saturday (not just the first Saturday); partake of valid Sacraments when they are available; offer every single suffering that comes your way (without seeking it) as She taught us to do, and, above all, as She told miguel de Portugal - "strive to live My Son's Gospel".
Regarding your "Purgatorial Invoice" - remember what Jesus said: The worst sin that man may have ever committed is but a grain of sand when compared to the Oceans of My Mercy! and the reality that The more we need His Mercy the more He wants to grant it to us - because He also said that. Trust in His Word!
Remember the exchange that He had with the criminal crucified next to Him: And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom. And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise. [Luke 23:42-43]
In verse 40 we read the what triggered Jesus' statement: This criminal recognized Jesus as our Redeemer, acknowledged his own sins and deserving of the justice applied to him, and sought Jesus' Mercy.... and He granted it to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.
You may be assured of our prayerful support.
Did you know that..... an official of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) - Rev. Thomas Weinandy, OFM Cap - expressed concerns about Francis Pontificate and was fired from the USCCB as a result?
Rev Weinandy is a former chief of staff for the USCCB's Committee on Doctrine and a current member of the Vatican's International Theological Commission.
As Rev. Weinandy closes his letter he states:
I have often asked myself: “Why has Jesus let all of this happen?” The only answer that comes to mind is that Jesus wants to manifest just how weak is the faith of many within the Church, even among too many of her bishops.
Ironically, your pontificate has given those who hold harmful theological and pastoral views the license and confidence to come into the light and expose their previously hidden darkness. In recognizing this darkness, the Church will humbly need to renew herself, and so continue to grow in holiness.
And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” [Luke 18:7-8]
May God have Mercy on His Elect as He promised through Luke 18:7-8
