Commentaries of June 2004
The purpose of this News Commentary Section is to assist
the faithful in recognizing the signs and lies of These End Times.
Somehow, many self appointed Shepherds of These Times are trying to
convince the faithful that the Apocalypse will be, using street slang,
"a piece of cake" for them and "hell" for all others. They are led to
believe that if they"do this" and "do that" they do not have a thing to
worry about (of course, so long as that between the "do this" and the
"do that" they send in a donation).
Others lead the faithful to believe that "All Is Well" and will
continue to be, of course, as long as those donations keep coming in...
Wrong! For either case scenario to be true, the Old and New
Testament has to be invalid. Logically, if the Holy Scriptures are
invalid there is no use for "Shepherds", is there? So what is their
function besides collecting money?
Spending it, of course!
Now, let us focus on the real world and the news about its structures,
philosophies and half-baked theories crumble. With the assistance of
the Holy Spirit of God, Who cannot be falsified, the disoriented
faithful will be able to understand what is truly taking place and why.
- June 23, 2004 - Cardinal Says Denying Communion May Hurt
Excerpts from article by RACHEL ZOLL,
AP Religion Writer
The head of a U.S. bishops' task force studying Roman Catholics in
public life told fellow bishops that withholding Holy Communion from
politicians or others could hurt the church in its efforts to stop
abortion and euthanasia, according to documents released Wednesday.
But Washington Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the task force leader, and
a top Vatican (news - web sites) cardinal who advised him, also
indicated that the sacrament could be withheld under some circumstances.
McCarrick made the comments during the bishops' closed-door spiritual
retreat last week in suburban Denver. The U.S. Conference of Catholic
Bishops disclosed details of the task force presentation Wednesday.
"Disciplinary actions are permitted," McCarrick said. "But they should
be applied when efforts at dialogue, persuasion and conversion have
been fully exhausted."
Praised Be Jesus! This is the most logical statement we have heard from
an internally influential figure of the Roman Catholic Church about
As far as we are concerned, McCarrick's position is as close to the
principles that we recently
published regarding similar situations, as a Church official can

- June 18, 2004 - Russia Warned U.S. About Iraq, Putin Says
Washington Post - Saturday, June
19,2004; Page A11
Russian President Vladimir Putin said yesterday that his intelligence
service had warned the Bush administration before the U.S. invasion of
Iraq that Saddam Hussein's government was planning attacks against U.S.
targets both inside and outside the country...
"After Sept. 11, 2001, and before the start of the military operation
in Iraq, the Russian special services, the intelligence service,
received information that officials from Saddam's regime were preparing
terrorist attacks in the United States and outside it against the U.S.
military and other interests," Putin said, according to RIA Novosti,
the Russian news agency. "American President George Bush had an
opportunity to personally thank the head of one of the Russian special
services for this information, which he regarded as very important,"
the Russian president told an interviewer while in Astana, capital of

Refreshing Our Collective Memory on the part of
the Secret of Fátima which has been published for decades already:
"To save them God wishes to
establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say
to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.
"...but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one [than World
War I] will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI. To prevent
this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my
Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First
Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russian will be converted, and
there will be peace; if not,
she [Russia] will spread her errors throughout the world,
causing wars and persecutions of the Church..."
It is obvious that
Russia has not stopped spreading its errors (nor it will until its long
term objective is fulfilled - Step No. 1
We have said it before and say it again - the U.S. government
intelligentsia is no match for those who plot to bring down the only
Super Power left. We have warned, directly
and indirectly but arrogance blinds and
the U.S. is relentlessly being delivered to
Step No. 1 and poor President Bush,
being played "like a fiddle", is fully cooperating with those dark
forces without realizing it.

(Zenit.org) - John Paul II Cautions About Factions Within Church - Code:
VATICAN CITY, MAY 23, 2004.- One of the
essential missions of a bishop is to address the "worrisome
phenomenon"of factions within the Church, says John Paul II.
"As in any family, the Church's internal harmony can at times be
challenged by a lack of charity and the presence of conflict among her
members," the Pope said Saturday when meeting with U.S. bishops from
the ecclesiastical provinces of San Antonio and Oklahoma City.
"This can lead to the formation of factions within the Church which
often become so concerned with their special interests that they lose
sight of the unity and solidarity which are the foundations of
ecclesial life and the sources of communion in the family of God," the
Holy Father said.
M+G+R Foundation Comments
Lord Have Mercy! How could the Faithful not be confused! It even
sound as if H.H. John Paul II were.
He states: "... factions within the Church... can lead to
the formation of factions within the Church which often become so
concerned with their special interests that they lose sight of the
unity and solidarity..."
It is he - or appears to have been him.... appearances are deceiving - who has
promoted The Prelature of the Holy Cross and
Opus Dei, The Neo-Catechumenal Way, The Legionnaires of Christ, Regnum Christi, etc., etc. Groups
which are beyond "factions" since they seem to exhibit all the marks of
"sects" by linguistic and anthropologically measurements. To the point
that a Belgian Parliamentary Commission grouped
the Opus Dei together with other Sects.
As we have said before and will continue to say until the end, the
longer H.H.John Paul II allows himself
to be used by special interests within the
Church Administration, the greatest the harm that he will bring
upon the magnificent work of his early Pontificate.
