Letters/Questions - Addressed on
September - 2006
From Various @ World
[Published on September 30th]
Regarding your allegation that a Belgian Parliamentary Commission
investigated the Opus Dei as well as other groups they considered sects
- could you expound on the subject matter by giving hard facts about
said very serious allegation?
Through the Grace of God, one of our collaborators has
found great detail on said matter. We rae more than happy - if not
eager - to pass it on so that the doubting Thomases are convinced that
we do not "talk through the proverbial hat".
the Belgian Parliamentary Commission on Cults submitted a report to the
Belgian Parliament in 1997. The report
differentiated in its conclusions between three types of "sectes":
- the sect in strict sense (la secte strictu sensu). a group
distinguished by a particular belief which is a normal expression of
- harmful sectarian organizations (Les organisations sectaires
nuisibles) defined as a group with real or pretended philosophic or
religious vocation which in its organisation or its practices includes
harmful illegal activities, harms individuals or society or interferes
with human dignity.
- criminal associations (Les associations de malfaiteurs)
defined as criminal organisations (frauds, money launderers, drug
traffickers, pedophile rings, etc.) using a cult-like or
pseudo-religious front to disguise their criminal practices. 2(pg.
The report included a list of 189 organizations which had come
up during the investigation, including the Amish Mission in
Belgium, Buddhism, several
Catholic groups such as Opus Dei, some Evangelical
Christian denominations, Hasidic Judaism, Quakers,
but stated clearly immediately before the listing:
- "This listing does not constitute a specific position or a
judgment by the commission. The fact that a movement is listed here,
even if at the instigation of an official instance, does not signify
that the commission regards it as a sect, let alone as dangerous. (Cette
énumération ne constitue donc ni une prise de position,
ni un jugement de valeur de la part de la commission. Ainsi, le fait
pour un mouvement d'y figurer, même si c'est à
l'initiative d'une instance officielle, ne signifie pas que pour la
commission, il soit une secte, et a fortiori qu'il soit dangereux.)
But more important, most of the commission’s report, including the
above mentioned list (tableau synoptique), was rejected by the Belgian
Parliament in the plenary session on May 7, 1997. Out of the
670-pages-report, the Belgian Parliament approved only the section
“conclusions and recommendations” (pages 209-226).3
The Quakers complained to Deputy Prime Ministers about their
inclusion on the list, pointed out their humanitarian aid programs, and
requested to see the evidence against them which had been presented the
federal police in a closed session to the Parliamentary Commission.
They were unsuccessful in their appeal.
As a consequence of the advice of the commission to the parliament,
a law was accepted to observe cults that possibly break the law. This
resulted in the foundation of a centre on June 2, 1998 for the information
and advice on harmful cults, located in Brussels. 
Opus Dei is listed there, on pp. 260 and 261 (listings in French on
260, and Flemish on 261). Their doctrine is described in French
as "Catholicisme intégral et élitiste".

Only with the Spirit of God as a "decoder" the reality can be
discerned. Most readers of the Word of God pay little attention to the
depth of Jesus' statement: through Matthew 24:

the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be. 22 And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh

would fulfill an ancient, widely revered Jewish prophecy that the
temple will descend from the heavens as a manifestation of light.
Hayutman hopes to finance the project with some of the proceeds from a

even wants to display progress reports in the floating hologram as a

Comments From Various @ USA
[Published on September 5th]
We have received several comments regarding a mailing today about a
topic which also coincides with information appearing in our Points to
Ponder section dated September 4th, 2006. The information/topic
refers to someone with a considerable high profile and following who
claims to be Jesus Christ in His Second coming.
The mailing read as follows:
As incredible as it appears - this man, José Luis de
Jesús Miranda - is passing himself as Jesus Christ in His
Second Coming. He invokes all "the right" Scriptural verses to justify
himself and his lifestyle. The problem is that they "have conveniently
forgotten" the key Biblical passage:
"And when he had said these
things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received
him out of their sight. 10 And while they were beholding him
going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments. 11
Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven?
This Jesus, who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you
have seen him going into heaven."
[Acts of the Apostles 1: 9-11]
Let us see, now that we have announced
it, how long it will take them to spin it to their favor.
The M+G+R Foundation
Frankly, we are at a loss
with the comments since the points that we wished to make seemed to
have been completely missed by the those whom we feel, should know
better (from being acquainted with the writings in The M+G+R Foundation
and/or claiming to have a solid Faith as well as a working knowledge of
the Catholic Faith). This reaction - which seems to be on the increase
- is drawing us more and more to consider publishing less and less. We
do not have the time to masticate and half digest what we publish nor
we have the time to respond to queries resulting from the "indigestion"
thereof: READ - Those who missed the
Some of the points which we were trying to make with today's mailing
1. If someone, so obviously
counter- Jesus Christ, has garnered such an enormous following:
(a) Imagine the enormous
level of erroneous conversions that will take place when the true False
Christ makes His appearance.
(b) Understand how much prayer is needed to protect and
illuminate the completely unEvangelized Christians who think that they
are "Saved"; and specifically Roman Catholics, who think that just
because they are Roman Catholics they are a "shoe in" for Heaven.
2. The Scriptures that we cited - Acts of the Apostles 1: 9-11 - are a
key to assist the Faithful to easily eliminate the obvious frauds.
What such Angelic message means is: That when Jesus Christ
returns, He will do so just like He left. When He left, He
....was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight.
upon His return, reverse that: He will come down from Heaven and be
visible to all. The Angels were just not "flapping their gums" or
"shooting the breeze" - they were giving humanity a tremendously
important point of reference for His return.
3. Because of item No. 2 (above), those who are behind the
manifestation of the False Christ have been working feverishly in
developing a scheme to circumvent that seemingly impossible feat, and,
guess what? - they are "getting there" by using the same technique we
announced when we initially started writing in 1991 - 1992 : Highly
4. Determine the time that it would take them to spin the Acts
of the Apostles 1: 9-11 so that it would also justify this gentleman's
If we have to go into such detailed explanations for those who are
already familiar with us, about something
that seems quite obvious, every time we publish something - then is
indeed best to minimize publications to the absolute bare minimum and
give our regular readers more time to pray and seek the Illumination of
the Holy Spirit of God.
If we have offended someone - we regret it, but what has been said
From IC @
Philippines [Published on
Q. You mentioned that "...we should not comparing
ourselves with others; we must only keep our eyes fixed on those
Heavenly Set Goals...".
My question is: while we strive to be as close to Christ (i.e. perfect)
as is humanly possible, is it not appropriate that we look upon others
(say, such as St. Don Bosco) as signposts to our ultimate goal?
The purpose is not to be that person's clone, as circumstances
and/or God-given abilities differ for each person, but rather to
remind ourselves what is possible when we put our faith in God. I do
this from time to time: aside from asking myself what Jesus would want
me to do, I also look upon others for inspiration. Is this wrong?
May God continue to bless and guide
A. Once again,
thank you for a golden opportunity. The problem lies in the fact that
humans have an ingrained tendency to idolatry - be it images, icons,
saints or just spiritual directors (*). Only when a human
is quite advanced in his/her spiritual development he/she will be
essentially "idolatry proof". Therefore, given that natural tendency is
best to avoid it as much as possible until we have risen enough in our
m de P is surrounded by pictures, images, icons
of the Most Holy Trinity, Jesus, Mary, the Great Archangels and a few
selected Saints - even in the kitchen! Yet, none of them mean anything other than just a reminder of the awesome
reality (which is not the image, the icon, etc. being looked upon) of
each one. He could (and has, because of his frequent relocation)
just replace them all with different looking representations of the
same individuals and feels just as content. Thus - no idolatry. No
"magic" image; no "special" icon; no statue "full of grace". His
"treasure is in Heaven" - the physical objects are mere reminders.
The same with the saints. We keep bringing up John Bosco as an example of how
applying the teachings of Jesus - even in the Italian hell of the 19th
Century - Jesus prevailed. Nonetheless, miguel feels that there were a
number of things that John Bosco did which were not correct. As a
matter of fact, God reassured him that it was not miguel's arrogance
because, as he was reading one of Bosco's original biographies, Bosco
himself reported having been sternly reprimanded by God by precisely
about one of the issues miguel found more out of line in Bosco's
Now, if miguel had fallen into "Bosco idolatry" as the Escrivites
practice with Escrivá, miguel would believe that everything
Bosco did had to be right because "he was who he was and accomplished
what he accomplished"; thus, running the very real risk of trying to
imitate something that was so wrong that God had to issue a reprimand.
Because of this human tendency, the practice of Roman Catholicism, by
many (most?), is nothing more than blatant idolatry. Even though the Catholic teachings are crystal clear
against idolatry - its practice is tacitly approved by default. Why
is this the case? The answer may be found in Chapter 13 of the
Acts of the Apostles:
23 Now at that time
there arose no small disturbance about the way of the Lord. 24 For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith,
who made silver temples for Diana, brought no small gain to the
craftsmen; 25 Whom he calling together, with the workmen of like
occupation, said: Sirs, you know that our gain is by this trade;
26 And you see and hear, that this Paul by
persuasion hath drawn away a great multitude, not only of Ephesus, but
almost of all Asia, saying: They are not gods which are made by hands. 27
So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought, but
also the temple of great Diana shall be reputed for nothing; yea, and
her majesty shall begin to be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world
worshippeth. 28 Having heard these things, they were full
of anger, and cried out, saying: Great is Diana of the Ephesians. 29
And the whole city was filled with confusion; and having caught Gaius
and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul's companions, they rushed with
one accord into the theatre. 30 And when Paul would have entered in unto
the people, the disciples suffered him not.
Money, money and money! Just as St.
Francis allegedly pointed out to Pope Innocent III
(*) In 1994
a well heeled lady in Spain sought miguel de Portugal for a meeting.
(She only had seen him and heard of him by reference; yet she did not
know he was "miguel de Portugal" nor his function, etc.) Days after the
meeting she looked up miguel and gave him a booklet about angels and
dedicated as such (which we are now translating into English): "To Miguel : The "visible" Angel that God
wanted to place at my side. Guard me, reign and rule over me.
Needless to say, miguel was terribly disturbed and wrote back,
quoting the Holy Scriptures, that such personal submission was not
right and would not be accepted. Guidance and direction - SUBJECTED to
the Holy Spirit of God, yes; unqualified submission - absolutely not!

My name is Jason L. and I am a Christian college student.
I am doing a report on the glorious work that many of our brave
brothers and sisters are doing in their missionary work over in Africa.
Truly I believe that the way to stop the spread of Aids is through
accepting the glory and power of our lord Jesus Christ, and
understanding the power of prayer.
But is using condoms sinful?
Thank you very much for your time and
may the Lord Jesus bless you.
A. Thank you for
the opportunity. The problem the world is facing now is the "picking up the pieces of a failed
Evangelization effort". When it comes to moral codes, we are "to the right of the Vatican". We
do not even believe in those "just wars" they approved to further their
political interests. God said: "Thou
shalt not kill" and He gave no exceptions whatsoever.
The situation with the use of condoms, abortion, euthanasia, etc. is
not resolved with passing laws to substitute the working of the
"leaven" [Matthew 13: 33]
in the soul - that is - the conversion to Christ. They failed the
Evangelization task and now they want to force the world - in an
instant - to get back where they should have been if the Evangelization had been done as
Jesus intended it to be.
Any kind of birth control leads to turning the act of procreation into an act of recreation, however, we must
now allow the educated use of condoms to prevent the spread of AIDS,
while at the same time institute the proper Evangelization which will,
eventually, lead to a responsible utilization of the gift of sex. As we
have explained: It is one step at a time, which, with His
yoke will be the
easiest of journeys.
When the Shepherds pass and enforce moral laws, what they are
proclaiming is that they do not have any faith whatsoever. Did not
Jesus say: 13
go to the Father: and whatsoever you shall ask the Father
in my name, that will I do: that the Father may be glorified in the Son

Can it be that Our Lord really intends addressing personally each one
who gets/reads them, as if He assumes that the reader reaches the
spiritual heights to respond adequately? Can I really take it for
granted He's talking to ME (and others, of course) personally? Isn't
there a serious sin of Presumption?
I know He's merciful and all that, but in these messages, he seems to
be taking for granted such a LEVEL of holiness that I feel like a
hypocrite even reading them. If He was a mere human being I'd tell Him
to wise up -(I'm NOT being flippant)- but then He's omniscient, so He
must know better than me what/who He's dealing with.
(Some days later) I've kept that above letter since whatever day I
wrote it because it seemed so silly and embarrassing I couldn't bring
myself to send it. I suppose I meant later to find a more dignified way
to present what I'm trying to say. But this Rope Test has brought
things to a head.
It's the bit about feeling ready for such a test that's so off-putting
and frightening. Ready for such a test as that? I'm plain scared to
open it in case I get such a stern warning that it'll be awful. Dear
God Almighty, who could DARE feel ready for such a test?!
But I'm dying to know what's in it, all the same and He did say in one
of the early messages that, even though he is God, we shouldn't forget
He wants us to approach Him as man too.
Let it be clearly understood, then, in Heaven, earth (& wherever
else it might matter!) that when I presume to open it, it will be out
of sheer curiosity, and on the clear understanding that I fully

any way worthy to do so - to 'pass' this test.
I need no test to know how 'worthy' I am NOT. A TEST on Our Lord's own
terms? Dear God Almighty, who could dare feel ready for that?! His
forgiveness humbles me, for I don't know where I would have strayed
away from Him only that He guided my steps.

Your letter is Music to Heaven and, to us, a relief from the onslaught
of idiocy, arrogance and sheer stupidity of those who think of
themselves as "Holy", those who claim to be, or have been named,
"Leading Scholars" and of those who pretend to be "Shepherds" of the
Faithful as they march them to Gehenna. Thank you dear lady, for
the relief - albeit temporary - that you have given us today.
Now... to the issues that you raise.... Let us start where we should
always start.... The Holy Scriptures.
In Matthew 5 we read: 48
Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.
In John 5 we read: 14 Afterwards, Jesus findeth him in the
temple, and saith to him: Behold thou art made whole: sin no more, lest
some worse thing happen to thee.
In John 8 we read: 11
Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee.
Go, and now sin no more.
Obviously Jesus did not expect anyone of us to "become perfect" as our
Father is perfect overnight. He certainly did not expect us to "sin no
more" immediately. As we have discussed elsewhere, only a Miracle would
achieve that; a Miracle that God will not perform. Why? It is quite
simple: Only God is Perfect; and Man, as long as He has breath, is a
However - He gives us those instructions as "Goals"; goals that we must
strive to achieve with our whole heart and with His help. We
illustrated this with the true message of the Prodigal Son
Any test given by God helps us to gage where we are in reference to the
Goal that we are struggling to achieve with His help. If there were no
tests in school - would you know how much you have learned and how much
more you still need to learn? Of course not!
You see, dear sister in Christ, the problem has been that for 1600
years the motive to achieve those Heavenly set Goals have been
destructive guilt and fear
- the two key instruments of satan - not of God! What should move
us to unceasingly strive
to work toward becoming "perfect" and to "sin no more" is sheer love
for God. When a human loves another human, doesn't he/she tries to
please the object of his/her love by doing, saying, cooking, talking,
etc., etc. whatever pleases her/him more? Where do you think we
acquired such "tendency"? From the Creator Himself Who created us in
What did Jesus indicate were the most important Commandments? We read
in Luke 10
27 He answering, said: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all
thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself.
Whomever - we do not care what position they may occupy in the world -

without a doubt or a question - even if He is occupies the Chair of Peter
. The motive force
that God uses to draw His children to Him is Love - and only Love
The only "guilt" that we should allow, as we have discussed in a past document
and in the description of our functions
, is "salutary guilt". We suggest
that your review what we have written in His Name about it.

Do each individual has a custom written Bible to read from; or,
every message delivered by Mary reads different for each individual? Of
course not! The illumination of the Holy Spirit of God will bring out
in the message found in the Scriptural reading or a Marian message the

individual occupies at the
