“All things therefore whatsoever they shall say to you, observe and do;

but according to their works do ye not;

for they say, and do not.”
[Matthew 23:3]

What This Means Today


Our Lord Jesus Christ minced no words when He pointed out the infidelity and hypocrisy of the religious leaders of Judaism of the time, and pointedly disassociated these leaders from the rightful teachings of Mosaic Law.

“The scribes and the Pharisees have sitten on the chair of Moses. All things therefore whatsoever they shall say to you, observe and do: but according to their works do ye not; for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy and insupportable burdens, and lay them on men’ s shoulders; but with a finger of their own they will not move them. And all their works they do for to be seen of men.” [Matt. 23:2-5]

Through many other Biblical passages, Our Lord confirms that He endorsed obedience to the Divine teachings handed down through Moses. However, He did not endorse obedience to the multitude of man-made laws and traditions which were designed to serve the personal and political interests of the religious leaders of the time.

Should the reader doubt this, we again quote the words of Our Lord to dispel any lingering doubts. According to S. Mark Jesus proclaimed that:

The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath. [Mark 2:27]

What we say, in His Name, is that: The Religious Institutions were made for man, not man for the Religious Institutions.

No, we are not about to propose that the Roman Catholic Church approve divorces or birth control devices or female priests, or cast the Virgin Mary to a secondary role, or whatever the special interests of man fancies. Far from it! For those of you who may not be familiar with our positions, know that we strictly endorse the fundamental teachings of the Catholic Faith. (1)

Do notice: We said Catholic Faith and not Catholic Church.


The purpose of this document is three fold:

(a) To echo the persistent complaints from Heaven which keep reminding us of the words of Our Lord;

(b) To allow the reader to understand why God will allow, not cause, but allow, the persecution of Christianity; and

(c) To explain what the faithful are to do in response.

Why will God allow this? Because the Christian institutions were established for man; man was not created for the Christian institutions. Man was created for God, and he must now find the way to Him through the legitimate teachings of the Christian institutions in spite of the efforts of today’s scribes and Pharisees. The Church, in the case of Catholicism, is not an end unto itself. The Church is the most effective vehicle through which man will reach the plenitude of his communion with God but not the only one (2).

Woe to those who continue to block the way, for it will not be tolerated any longer.


The complaints from Heaven may be heard through a multitude of apparitions of the Virgin Mary and may be seen reflected in the condition of the world today.

We will first address the complaints from Heaven manifested through Our Heavenly Mother.

La Salette (3)

Country: France
Date(s): 1846
Approval Status: The Vatican
Frequency: Under 5

Complaint: “The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their love of honors and pleasures, the priests have become cesspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking for vengeance, and vengeance is hanging over their heads. Woe to the priests and to those dedicated to God who by their unfaithfulness and their wicked lives are crucifying my Son again! The sins of those dedicated to God cry out towards Heaven and call for vengeance, and now vengeance is at their door, for there is no one left to beg mercy and forgiveness for the people. There are no more generous souls, there is no one left worthy of offering a stainless sacrifice to the Eternal God for the sake of the world.”

Request: Return to Her Son and His laws.

Prophecy: Many of the worldwide calamities from 1846 until now were correctly forecast.
World’s Response: A basilica was built and a statue of Our Lady of La Salette was consecrated, but there was no change in the behavior of the clergy.

Fátima (4)

Country: Portugal
Date(s): 1917/1929
Approval Status: The Vatican
Frequency: Under 30

Complaint: Do not offend the Lord our God any more. He is much offended. Our Lord also complains (5) “...above all, He complains very much about the lukewarm, indifferent and comfortable life of the majority of the clergy and members of the religious orders.”

Request: Pray the rosary daily. Consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart. Stop offending Our Lord. Promote First Saturday of Reparation. Build a chapel here.

Prophecy: If Her requests are not heeded a worse war (than WW I) will take place (WW II), Russia will spread its errors in large scale and... if people do not mend their ways there will be a horrible, horrible punishment...

World’s Response: Too little and too late. What She specifically requested, and Our Lord insisted upon, was not done in accord with the instructions and timetable given by Heaven. The death of over 150 million human beings, so far, and the actual condition of the world at the close of the 20th Century and its state during the first decade of the 21st Century confirm the lack of adequate response.

Rosa Mystica (6)

Country: Italy
Date(s): 1947; 1966/1976
Approval Status: Bishop (7)
Frequency: Under 60

Complaint: Loss of vocations. Religious and clergy living in mortal sin and betraying Jesus like Judas. The world is walking the road to perdition. It requires prayer, sacrifice and penance in order to save mankind.

Request: Much penitence, prayer and expiation. Hour of Grace should be promulgated by Pope Pius XII. Cultivate Devotion to Her Immaculate Heart.

Prophecy: Our Lord is tired of so many offenses and sins against holy purity. He wants to send another punishment of the same magnitude as the Flood of Noah’s time. [Note: “magnitude” and not “type”]

World’s Response: No church wide support. No recognition of the Hour of Grace. Apparition mostly ignored by the hierarchy of the Church... and the world continued to descend into the abyss as we entered the 21st Century.

Garabandal (8)

Country: Spain
Date(s): 1961/1965
Approval Status: Pending (7)
Frequency: Over 1,800

Complaint: 1. The cup is (on 1961) already filling up. 2. Since the message of 1961 has not been heeded, now (1965), the cup is flowing over. Many cardinals, many bishops and many priests are on the road to perdition and are taking many souls with them. Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist.

Request: Must make sacrifices and perform much penance. Make this message widely known. Amend your lives.

Prophecy: “You should turn the wrath of God away by your efforts. Ask for forgiveness and He will grant it.” [Implied prophecy : “If you do not change your ways and ask for forgiveness you will have to contend with the wrath of God – the Chastisement.”]

World’s Response: The laity has done much to promote the message without official Church support. Reportedly Conchita has been forbidden, by the appropriate authorities at The Vatican, to discuss the events of Garabandal with anyone. This is a situation similar to that of Sr. Lucía of Fátima.

Kibeho (9)

Country: Rwanda
Date(s): 1981/1989
Approval Status: First stage by the local bishop on August 15, 1988, thus allowing public devotion.
Frequency: ?

Complaint: “If Rwanda did not come back to God, said the vision, there would be a ‘river of blood’.”

It has been reported that in one vision that lasted eight hours they saw terrifying images of people killing each other, and bodies thrown into rivers. They saw bodies without their heads – decapitated. They were weeping and crying and the witnesses who crowded around the seers were left with an unforgettable impression of fear and sadness.

Request: I have come to prepare the way for my Son for your good and you do not want to understand.

Prophecy: The time remaining is short and you are absent-minded. You are distracted by the goods of this world which are passing. I have seen many of my children getting lost and I have come to show them the true way.

World’s Response: The Rwandan genocide of 1994 underscores well the lack of response by the Roman Catholic Church Hierarchy and the faithful.

As it has happened in the past, after the pre announced horrors of the Rwanda genocide became a bloody reality, the “prudent” Church authorities approved the Apparitions of the Virgin Mary in the town of Kibeho, Rwanda.

On June 29, 2001, the Catholic World News, reported from Gikongoro, Rwanda, that:

Archbishop Augustin Misago of Gikongoro, Rwanda, has announced that he is satisfied that the Virgin Mary has appeared in the town of Kibeho, Rwanda.

The Archbishop has released a statement indicating his “definitive judgment” that the reported apparitions in Kibeho are authentic. The Vatican made the archbishop’s statement public on June 29.

Vatican officials privately point out that the Holy See does not ordinarily take a stand on the authenticity of extraordinary events such as apparitions; such determinations are always left to the diocesan bishops. So the publication of Archbishop Misago’s statement was an indirect sign of Vatican support for his findings.

In Conclusion to the Complaints From Heaven

As we have said in the past: There is no doubt that the Catholic Faith has the Infallible Guidance of the Holy Spirit; however, it is indeed a tragedy that the men running the Catholic Church —Roman and Orthodox— are more concerned with their Ecclesiastical Careers than with the flock placed in their care as they continue to ignore such Perfect and Infallible Guidance.

Miguel de Portugal wishes to remind these “prudent” Bureaucrats of the Catholic Churches of the Words of Our Lord as related by Matthew, Chapter 7 [Douay-Rheims Version of The Holy Bible]:

15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 By their fruits you shall know them [...] 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. [Mt 7:15-23]

...and further in Chapter 21 [Douay-Rheims Version of The Holy Bible]...

18 And in the morning, returning into the city, he [Jesus] was hungry. 19 And seeing a certain fig tree by the way side, he came to it and found nothing on it but leaves only. And he saith to it: May no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And immediately the fig tree withered away. [Mt 21:18-19]

And so it shall be the fate of the existing Bureaucracy of the Churches.

Is the faithful scandalized at our words? Please, do not be. Our words are a faint echo of the words of our Heavenly Mother in La Salette, 1846, France – Approved and Amply Acknowledged by the Roman Catholic Church with a Basilica:

“The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their love of honors and pleasures, the priests have become cesspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking for vengeance, and vengeance is hanging over their heads. Woe to the priests and to those dedicated to God who by their unfaithfulness and their wicked lives are crucifying my son again! The sins of those dedicated to God cry out towards Heaven and call for vengeance, and now vengeance is at their door, ...”

One and all have been amply warned by Our Lord (10). The response has not been adequate. May the Chastisement of the world and Churches, as they now exist, quickly proceed to its final stages.

A MOMENT OF MEDITATION [Primarily for the members of the Catholic Churches]

We have been accused of “preaching to the choir” but we ask ourselves, could it be that this choir [most members of the Hierarchy and the faithful] is deaf?

Is this choir really that blind? That arrogant? What is it going to take for the so-called militant Catholic Churches to turn back to God? We assure you, in the Name of God, whatever it will take He will allow – even if the dead are numbered in the hundreds of millions, the rivers are literally turned into blood and the material loss reach numbers which defy computation.

Dear, dear brothers and sisters. Our Heavenly Mother has come to warn us many times. If She has come to warn us, that means that God wants us to do something to lessen the great suffering awaiting humanity. If we are awash in blood and can account for over 150 million (11) unnecessary brutal deaths, then we have to face some very tough choices:

(a) The Marian Apparitions are a hoax; OR

(b) Evil is stronger than God; OR

(c) The prayers and sacraments are worthless; OR

(d) The Catholic Church, Roman and Orthodox, and the faithful, are not responding the way we should.

If the Catholic Churches were established to help humanity reach God and has failed, and those who control them have been persistently blocking a loving God from reaching out to us through His Daughter, His Mother and His Spouse —Mary— we need to make a careful, serene and objective evaluation of the situation.

Most Roman Pontiff of the 20th Century have done all in their limited [by protocol, tradition, politics, mammon, etc.] power to comply with Heaven, yet compliance has not been achieved. Why? They have been blocked by the personal agendas of most of the ecclesiastical “middle management”.

Do you doubt this? Please consider...

Our Lord Jesus Christ requested decades ago through Sister Faustina [now St. Faustina] to establish the Feast of Mercy on the Sunday after Easter Sunday. There is no human on earth who desired that more than H.H. John Paul II, yet, it took years before he was able to fulfill the request from the One they claim to serve.

Without a doubt, every Pope from Pius XII on to H.H. John Paul II would have beatified Jacinta and Francisco Marto much sooner; however, hell almost froze over before those genuine martyrs were Beatified.

Through the Fatima events Heaven requested that the Immaculate Heart of Mary be honored as a feast in the Universal Church. One hundred and fifty million maimed corpses later, poor John Paul II was able to fulfill part of the request in pectore (secretly/unpublicized) on January 1, 1996. The day of observance of the Immaculate Heart of Mary became a Memorial of Obligation and placed in the Calendar of the Universal Church [Prot. 2376/95/L]. It was made public over a year after H.H. John Paul II signed it. (12)

Many similar situations may be listed showing the very limited power the legitimate Roman Pontiffs have when it comes to moving the hierarchical middle management into action. In 1,600 years they have become masters of passive resistance.


We stated as the purpose of this document to echo the persistent complaints from Heaven and to help the faithful understand why God will allow, not cause, but allow, the persecution of Christianity, with the clergy leading the list of victims.

But what should the faithful do?

Pray, sacrifice, penance, Eucharistic Reparation, Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, partake of the Sacraments often – especially Reconciliation, pray the Holy Rosary daily and Evangelize by example.

No one can stop the faithful from fulfilling the pleas from Heaven. They are part of the Magisterial Teachings of the Church. His Holiness John Paul II exhorted the faithful to do this since he became the Bishop of Rome. His 20th century predecessors have too.

Brethren – it is time to stop talking and start praying.

As we conclude this document we realize that the only issues that we have not confirmed to you yet are: (a) why the clergy will lead the list of victims; and (b) why the Church Hierarchy and faithful should heed our words.

You may find that confirmation in the Book of Malachi, a Book which was written as a prophecy of both the First AND the Second Coming of the Messiah.

(1) If you are a new visitor, you may get the idea that we are part of what is known as the “liberal movement” within Catholicism. That is not the case. We strongly suggest that you first review our positions regarding the Pristine Catholic Faith (we said “Faith” and not “Church Hierarchy”), Roman Catholic Church Hierarchy, Only Possible Changes Within the Roman Catholic Church Allowed by God and Our Function.
