UPDATE: February 23, 2013:

Jesus said: "This generation will not pass away till all these things take place” (Mt 24:34; Mk 13:30; Lk 21:32). There are a great number of indications and signs from the saints, the popes and from the messages of Our Lady that we are “this generation” which Christ referred to in Matthew 24. I believe that our “generation” will witness the most underhanded, sly and devastating deception of Satan in the history of the world and of the Church. I also think that THIS FRAUD WILL BE DONE AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE, as hidden as possible, so as to fool as many people as possible. As Saint Hildegard wrote (who was made a doctor of the Church only a few months ago!!!): “two-thirds of the Christians will go with him” (the false Pope, the false prophet, the second beast of the Apocalypse)! Forewarned is forearmed! Visit: “The FALSE POPE – Saint Hildegard”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/02/resignation-of-pope-benedict.html.

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST


PART I: Catholic Parameters For Biblical Prophecy

1. There Is Much Biblical ProphecyMORE THAN ONE FORTH of the Bible is dedicated to prophecy. There is prophecy relating to the first coming of Christ and prophecy relating to the second coming of Christ. The vast majority of these prophecies are dedicated to the second coming of Christ and the period preceding His coming after which He will come "in the clouds with great power and glory" (Mt 24:30; Mk 13:26; Lk 21:27). There are more than 1800 verses in the Bible that speak about the second coming of Christ and over 10,000 verses that are surrounding texts to this event. It is not by chance that there are so many prophetic verses in the Bible; these verses are for us to read! "Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand" (Rev 1:3; 2Tim 4:8); this verse proves that the book of Revelation is not some deep, mysterious and confusing book.

2. The Catechism of the Catholic ChurchPope John Paul II spoke often of the second coming of Christ in his numerous talks. One also finds references to Christ's second coming, as well as to the period of his second coming, in the Catechism of the Catholic Church: 840: "The coming (or the return) of the Messiah"; 2816: "The kingdom of God is just ahead of us; in Christ we shall reign"; 2818: "Thy kingdom come" (in the "Our Father") refers primarily to the final coming of the reign of God through Christ's return"; 2817 (also see 671, 2853): "The petition "Marana tha" is the cry of the spirit and the Bride: "O come Lord Jesus", indeed come as soon as possible"; 349: "The eighth day begins the new creation (the 7th day is the 1000-year reign of Christ (Rev 20:4)); 1042: "The universe itself will be renewed" (not recreated); 1047: "The visible universe itself is destined to be transformed and restored to its original state"; 674: “The glorious Messiah’s coming is suspended at every moment of history until his recognition by “all Israel,” for “a hardening has come upon part of Israel” in their “unbelief” toward Jesus” (Rom 11:20-26; cf. Mt 23:39).

3. Skeptics and the Over CriticalFather Desmond A. Birch, a leading Catholic scholar and author who wrote the book, "Trial, Tribulation and Triumph", asks the following: "Is eschatology (or the study of things to come) still important in the 20th century? There are those Catholics who would tell you that to study doctrine concerning the Antichrist or the latter end times is either a waste of time or unimportant. That opinion is even held by some orthodox Catholic scholars. There are also those who say that we must not abandon ourselves to terror or to anxiety about the imminent end. However, if eschatology is a waste of time or something frightening, then WHY IS IT TREATED WITH SUCH IMPORTANCE in Scripture, in Tradition and the Magisterium or the teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church?"

It is unfortunate that there are many people and cults today, such as the Jehovah's Witnesses and the Mormons, that MISUSE PROPHECY for there own interests and attention; this misuse of prophecy causes many to reject all prophetical studies.

Years ago perhaps there were many people who spouted off warnings about the end of the world, often in an imprudent and EXAGGERATED way, etc. But today, precisely when there are more signs than ever before that match up with so many prophecies, the great majority of people DO NOT WANT TO HEAR anything about it! I truly believe that those who have the courage to look at the prophetical signs of today openly and honestly without fear and with trust in Almighty God, will be much better prepared for what many learned people of today believe will happen in our lifetime. Many people realize that things are really in bad shape today but they convince themselves that everything will crash after they are dead!

I would also speculate that Pope Paul VI approved the decree of December 29, 1966 so as to not let the “smoke of Satan” in “the temple of God” stifle true private revelations for our present time. Visit: “Revelations to Margaret of Jesus” (http://markbeast.blogspot.com/2009/04/margaret-of-jesus.html).

“EVERYTHING OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION IS HAPPENING” (September 25, 2001; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa9902eng.html).

“Now It Is That Will Happen All The Prophecies...” (August 29, 2003; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa03eng.html).

4. The "Last Days"?Are we, as many Christians believe, living in the last days? We read in the book of Daniel: "And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, “Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end"” (Dan 12:8-9). Certainly the many signs of our times, that were not present years ago, as well as recent revelations of God, help us to open up these sealed prophetic verses. See “SIGNS OF THE TIMES” below.

But according to the teachings of the Catholic Church, the "last days" refers not only to the "end of time," but to THE LAST TWO THOUSAND YEARS. Scripture teaches that the Incarnation ushered in "the last days." According to Hebrews 1:1-2, "God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world." At Pentecost, Peter preached that "the last days" had arrived, in fulfillment of the words of the prophet Joel (Acts 2:15-17; cf. Joel 2:28-32).

"The last days" or "the end times," properly understood, refers to the time of the New Covenant, the gathering together of God's people in the Church, which is "on earth, the seed and the beginning of the kingdom" (CCC 567, 669; Lumen Gentium).

This understanding of the "LAST DAYS" differs from that of those who believe in premillennialism or the Rapture. Catholics agree that there will definitely be an "end of time" and that history as we know it will one day be complete. But we also recognize that each of us will face the end of our time on earth, and that this should, in many ways, concern us more than the end of the world (see CCC 1007).

5. The Church Interprets the Word of GodAs Catholics, we believe that “all that has been said about the manner of interpreting Scripture is ultimately subject to the judgment of the Church which exercises the divinely conferred commission and ministry of watching over and interpreting the Word of God” (CCC 119). The Church approaches Divine Revelation through Sacred Tradition, Sacred Scripture and Magisterial teaching, each of which have equal weight in the Catholic Church, no one of which can subsist without the other two. And so the Church helps us to interpret the Word of God properly, giving us also so many magnificent documents throughout Church history to guide us. We would never be in most of the messes we contrived for ourselves if we had listened to the Church’s teaching. The Church’s social teaching is nothing new!

This does not mean that the Catholic Church has definitively interpreted every single passage of Scripture or that individual Catholics cannot study Scripture for themselves. On the contrary, the Church has definitively interpreted less than a dozen passages, while encouraging Catholics to READ THE BIBLE in light of the "living Tradition of the whole Church" (CCC 113).

Often the puzzling and sometimes shocking images of Revelation are INTERPRETED in clever, bizarre, and often laughable ways. Most Catholics who encounter such misinterpretations usually steer clear of the biblical books that deal with apocalyptic themes, Daniel and Revelation. They are content to let their non-Catholic friends battle over these confusing matters.

This is unfortunate for a couple of reasons. First, CATHOLICS SHOULD STUDY ALL OF SCRIPTURE, including difficult books such as Daniel and Revelation, because God gave it to the Church for that purpose. Second, the Catholic Church offers two thousand years of reflection and study of Scripture, resulting in a rich, balanced, and nuanced understanding of the whole Bible. If the Catholic Church has the authority that Catholics believe she possesses, then they need to take seriously her understanding of Scripture. At the very least, doing so will help them avoid the serious misunderstandings of some other Christians and will equip Catholics to discuss these misunderstandings with them.

6. DispensationalismMany non-Catholic Christians believe in a theological system known as dispensationalism. The core of dispensationalism is incompatible with Catholic doctrine, although there are some secondary issues compatible. Dispensationalism is a Christian theological view of history and Biblical interpretation that became popular during the 1800s and early 1900s and is held today by many conservative Protestants. Dispensationalism refers to the belief that God works in history through a series of different epochs, or dispensations. In each of these periods, God tests man in a certain way. Man fails the test, and then God judges man. On this view, man now lives during the "Church Age," which is so full of apostasy and error that only a remnant of "true believers" remains.

Dispensationalism advocates a form of premillennialism in which it sees the past, present, and future as a number of successive administrations, or "dispensations" (Eph 3:2, KJV), each of which emphasizes aspects of the covenants between God and various peoples at various times. Consequently, it places a heavy emphasis on prophecy and eschatology, the study of the "end times."

According to dispensationalism, God is pursuing TWO PURPOSES in history: one involving an earthly people (Israel) and the other, a heavenly people (the Church). Dispensationalists believe that when Jesus Christ came, He offered the earthly people, Israel, a physical, earthly kingdom, but that they rejected Him as their Messiah. Consequently, Jesus formed a heavenly people, the Church, who are not meant to reign here on earth, but will reign with Him in heaven.

However, God will still fulfill the many Old Testament promises to Israel, His earthly people, because, dispensationalists insist, those promises were unconditional. When Christ founded the Church, all of those promises were "put on hold" until the heavenly people were removed from the earth in the Rapture. Since Israel has now been re-established as a nation, most dispensationalists believe that the removal of the Church via the Rapture can occur at any moment.

7. The RaptureThe Rapture will be a secret "SNATCHING UP" of all true believers in Christ to heaven; it will be immediately followed — according to most dispensationalists — by seven years of Tribulation and the reign of the Antichrist. At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will come again to establish an earthly, thousand-year reign, based in Jerusalem, where a new temple (complete with animal sacrifices) will exist.

NONE OF THE CHURCH FATHERS believed in a secret removal of true believers prior to the Tribulation. On the contrary, they taught that the Church would undergo a period of intense tribulation prior to the Second Coming. Christians are called to follow Christ crucified in order to share also in His resurrection! It seems to me that the Rapture is too easy! The Rapture theory is a NOVELTY; this idea only began with John Nelson Darby in the 1830s.

8. The Church and IsraelEschatology, the study of the last things, flows directly from ECCLESIOLOGY, the doctrine of the Church. This explains some of the significant differences between what Catholics and many Fundamentalists believe about the end of time. While most dispensationalists teach that God has TWO PEOPLE, the Church and Israel, the Catholic Church asserts that God has always had only ONE PEOPLE, or family, throughout history. According to the Catechism, "This 'family of God' is gradually formed and takes shape during the stages of human history, in keeping with the Father's plan. In fact, 'already present in figure at the beginning of the world, this Church was prepared in marvelous fashion in the history of the people of Israel … Established in this last age of the world and made manifest in the outpouring of the Spirit, it will be brought to glorious completion at the end of time" (CCC 759).

Therefore, the Catholic Church has always understood herself as being the NEW ISRAEL (Gal. 6:16; Eph. 2:11-12) and the new People of God (1 Pet. 2:9-10), the recipients of the New Covenant given through Christ (Heb. 8:8-13). The Old Covenant was not rejected by Christ, but fulfilled and taken up into the New Covenant; it concluded with the New Covenant and is included in it. This difference between dispensationalism and Catholic doctrine is the basis for other disagreements, including those involving the Rapture and the nature of the millennium.

Another issue is the FATE OF ISRAEL. What will happen to Israel in the end? According to the Catechism, "The glorious Messiah's coming is suspended at every moment of history until His recognition by 'all Israel', for 'a hardening has come upon part of Israel' in their 'unbelief' toward Jesus" (CCC 674). The Church, reflecting upon Romans 9-11, believes that Israel will somehow come to recognize Christ for who He is. The Church has not indicated how this will precisely occur.

9. The Kingdom of GodCatholic doctrine also teaches that the Church is intimately related to the Kingdom of God. The Church is "ultimately one, holy, catholic, and apostolic in her deepest and ultimate identity, because it is in her that 'the Kingdom of heaven,' the 'Reign of God,' already exists and will be fulfilled at the end of time" (CCC 865). The Kingdom is not yet complete, but began with the Incarnation and will be fully realized at the end of time: "The kingdom of heaven was inaugurated on earth by Christ. 'This kingdom shone out before men in the word, in the works and in the presence of Christ.' The Church is the seed and beginning of this kingdom. Its keys are entrusted to Peter" (CCC 567). In its fullness, the Kingdom is not an earthly reign, but the final triumph of Christ over the power of sin and Satan, culminating in an eternity spent in communion with the Triune God: "The kingdom has come in the person of Christ and grows mysteriously in the hearts of those incorporated into him, until its full eschatological manifestation" (CCC 865).

In contrast, dispensationalists believe that the Kingdom will be a THOUSAND-YEAR, EARTHLY REIGN OF CHRIST, known as the Millennium (from the Latin word for "thousand years"; c.f., Rev 20:4). Belief in a literal thousand-year earthly reign is called millenarianism or millennialism. It has been explicitly rejected by the Catholic Church. In 1944, the Holy Office warned against ". . . the system of mitigated Millenarianism, which teaches . . . that Christ the Lord before the final judgment, whether or not preceded by the resurrection of the many just, will come visibly to rule over this world. . . . The system of mitigated Millenarianism cannot be taught safely" (CCC 676).

10. The MillenniumThe reign of Christ and the thousand-year period found in Revelation 20 is popularly called the millennium. The millennium is a forerunner of the end of the world, and Revelation 20 is interpreted in three ways by conservative Protestants. The THREE SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT are called postmillennialism, amillennialism, and premillennialism.

11. PostmillennialismPostmillennialism is that view of last things which holds that the kingdom of God is now being extended in the world through the preaching of the gospel and the saving work of the Holy Spirit, that the world eventually is to be Christianized, and that the return of Christ will occur at the close of a long period of righteousness and peace, commonly called the millennium.

This view was popular with nineteenth-century Protestants, when progress was expected even in religion and before twentieth-century horrors were tasted. Today few hold to it, except such groups as Christian Reconstructionists, an outgrowth of the conservative Presbyterian movement.

12. AmillennialismThe amillennial view interprets Revelation 20 symbolically and sees the millennium not as an earthly golden age in which the world will be totally Christianized, but as the PRESENT PERIOD OF CHRIST’S RULE in heaven and on the earth through his Church.

Amillennialists also believe in the coexistence of good and evil on earth until the end. The tension that exists on earth between the righteous and the wicked will be resolved only by Christ’s return at the end of time. The golden age of the millennium is instead the heavenly reign of Christ with the saints, in which the Church on earth participates to some degree, though not in the glorious way will it participate in at the Second Coming.

Amillennialists point out that the thrones of the saints who reign with Christ during the millennium appear to be set in heaven (Rev 20:4; cf. 4:4, 11:16) and that the text nowhere states that Christ is on earth during this reign with the saints.

They explain that, although the world will never be fully Christianized until the Second Coming, the millennium does have effects on earth in that Satan is bound in such a way that he cannot deceive the nations by hindering the preaching of the gospel (Rev 20:3). They point out that Jesus spoke of the necessity of "binding the strong man" (Satan) in order to plunder his house by rescuing people from his grip (Mt 12:29). When the disciples returned from a tour of preaching the gospel, rejoicing at how demons were subject to them, Jesus declared, "I saw Satan fall like lightning" (Lk 10:18). Thus for the gospel to move forward at all in the world, it is necessary for Satan to be bound in one sense, even if he may still be active in attacking individuals (1 Pet. 5:8).

13. PremillennialismPremillennialism is currently the most popular among Fundamentalists and Evangelicals (though a century ago amillennialism was). Most of the books written about the End Times, such as Hal Lindsey’s ‘Late Great Planet Earth’, are written from a premillennial perspective.

Like postmillennialists, premillennialists believe that the thousand years is an earthly golden age during which the world will be thoroughly Christianized. Unlike postmillennialists, they believe that it will occur AFTER THE SECOND COMING rather than before, so that Christ reigns physically on earth during the millennium. They believe that the Final Judgment will occur only after the millennium is over (which many interpret to be an exactly one thousand year period).

But Scripture does not support the idea of a thousand year span between the Second Coming and the Final Judgment. Christ declares, "For the Son of man is to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay every man for what he has done" (Mt 16:27), and "when the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats … And they [the goats] will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life" (Mt 25:31-32,46).

Most of the mainstream Protestants fall into the amillennial camp. Fundamentalists and evangelicals use to be amillennialist, but in more recent times most commonly fall into the premillennial camp. The Catholic position, the position of the Reformation fathers, and the position of historic Christianity, is in the amillennial camp.

14. The Period of TribulationThe Church also says relatively little about the time of trial or tribulation in the final days. The Church will go through the great trial, but we do not know how long it will last. The Catechism declares, "Before Christ's Second Coming the Church must PASS THROUGH A FINAL TRIAL that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the 'mystery of iniquity' in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth" (CCC 675; also see CCC 2642).

This time of trial will be at the start of the "last days" in the sense of the end of history: "According to the Lord, the present time is the time of the Spirit and of witness, but also a time still marked by 'distress' and the time of evil which does not spare the Church and ushers in the struggles of the last days. It is a time of waiting and watching" (CCC 672).

15. Interpreting the Book of RevelationThe Catholic Church has not officially interpreted the difficult passages in Revelation. There are FOUR MAIN APPROACHES to the book of Revelation: futurist, preterist, historicist and idealist. Futurists believe that most or all of the book of Revelation has yet to be fulfilled; preterists say that most or all of it was fulfilled in the first century; historicists claim that events described in Revelation have been transpiring for the last two thousand years; and idealists believe that the book of Revelation is allegorical and has little or nothing to do with historical events.

The Catholic Church allows a WIDE RANGE of interpretive possibilities, including forms of futurism, preterism, historicism and idealism. For example, a Catholic may believe the book of Revelation describes the conflict of good and evil as experienced by individual Christians or the Church (idealism), and makes prophetic utterances about events still to occur (futurism), and also refers to events that have already occurred, either in the early Church or later Church history (preterism and historicism). Catholic flexibility here is based on the fact that Scripture, inspired by God, often has different, yet complementary, meanings.

From early times, the Church, following the examples of Christ and the Apostles (i.e., Lk 24:25-27; 1 Cor 10:1-4), understood Scripture to have different senses, a literal and a spiritual sense (CCC 115). As the Catechism explains, the spiritual sense is always rooted in the literal sense: "The literal sense is the meaning conveyed by the words of Scripture and discovered by exegesis, following the rules of sound interpretation: 'All other senses of Sacred Scripture are based on the literal'" (CCC 116).

A common MISCONCEPTION is that Catholics interpret Scripture, especially the book of Revelation, "symbolically," while Evangelicals interpret it "literally." This has often been used to explain why the Catholic Church rejects an earthly, thousand-year reign of Christ. Yet few "literalists" bother to interpret literally other images in Revelation, such as the Beast, the dragon, the locusts, and the four horsemen.

16. Parameters of the Catholic ChurchThe Catholic Church says relatively little about future events leading up to Christ's Second Coming. Many of her teachings are rejections (either implicit or explicit), not affirmations, of particular beliefs such as the dispensational dichotomy between the Church and Israel, the "secret" Rapture, and the earthly millennial kingdom. What she does teach is quite clear, as well as succinct: there will be a Second Coming, a time of trial which the Church must endure, an Antichrist, a conversion of Israel to Christ, a definitive judgment of all people, and the fulfillment of the Kingdom that has already begun in the Church. WITHIN THOSE PARAMETERS, Catholics may freely roam, search the Scriptures, and seek to better understand the Word of God.

PART II: Prophetic Signs Manifested In Current World Events
17. Discovering the Pieces of the Puzzle!The following, while staying within the parameters given to us by the Catholic Church, is my own personal investigation and speculation based on my findings and study, in particular related to current events in the world. In studying prophecy one must have a good amount of humility because it is always easier to understand prophecy after the events have taken place. In searching for the truth, one finds one piece of the puzzle at a time. Then we look for another missing piece that has on it’s edges the same color, shape and figure corresponding to the pieces already found. This article represents precisely this process. But the more humility we have and the more openness we have to newly found truths and discoveries, which are sometimes outside of our personal categories and ideas, as well as the humility to try to seek these truths from the point of view of the Creator of all things with His One Church on earth, the quicker and easier we put the pieces of the puzzle together without going off of unfounded tangents. If one is not LOOKING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, he will never find many pieces of the puzzle; Satan certainly does his best to divert our attention in many ways as well as disguising himself as an angel of light. Certainly today, there are many who pick and choose what they want to believe in our relativistic culture so as to bend the facts and the truth to what suits them; in this case the truth is willfully blocked and thus there is no hope of finding the truth.

The job of those of good will is to indicate to people the true guide posts above all by our good example, and then if necessary, by our words. Certainly prudence is always necessary. But we would be “hypocrites” if we “do you not know how to interpret the present time” (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3)! We must first of all seek guidance from the One who loves us more than all others put together, God, who guides us through His Divine Revelation! The world events are coming together every more rapidly everyday. Thus the pieces of the puzzle are appearing faster and faster!

I hope too that my motives for this research were not for vain curiosity or to find a false security outside of God in presuming that I have discovered what the future is. Some Christians are fond of putting into the category of pride all those who seek to “interpret the present time.” As pointed out above, the Church encourages us to read the whole Bible, including the Book of Revelation, Ezekiel, Daniel, etc. The numerous, and ever increasing, private revelations from God in the last 150 years are for His children here on earth. Our adversary, Satan, has been and is preparing his greatest traps for each of us and for the whole world. Thus I hope also that this work might help to UNMASK SOME OF THESE PRINCIPLE INSIDIOUS SNARES so as to help us not to fall into them. I believe that two of the greatest traps and climactic deceptions of Satan for our time, besides sin and relativism in general, regards the “false prophet” and the “mark of the beast”! It is a great grace to recognize these eternally fatal deceptions. The Beast will be able to perform "signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect" (Mt 24:24; Mk 13:22; Rev 13:8; 19:20)! Of course the insidious and patient preparation by Satan for our destruction is very important to recognize. Forewarned is forearmed! So let’ be vigilant and attentive inspectors like the famous “Sherlock Holmes”!

Also, led by my parents, I have been interested in private revelation and prophecy for many years. I can see in my life that this pursuit has helped me to think often about how short life is and how long eternity is. The great majority of people today loose sight of this fundamental truth. Of course Satan, being very intelligent and sly, has convinced most of the people today that the devil and hell do not exist and you do not have to worry about eternity! We so easily and so willingly forget that life is a battle, a “DOUR COMBAT with the powers of evil” (CCC 409)! Thus for me, my interest in prophecy has helped me to not forget the eternal and the purpose for which I was created. I might also add that although my parents in the beginning led me to a false sect connected with a false Marian apparition (http://necedah-cult.blogspot.com), this experience was the beginning of my abandoning worldly pursuits and my journey toward the priesthood.

It is amazing how these mysterious prophetical verses in Sacred Scripture are TAKING ON FLESH TODAY IN SUCH A VERY RAPID PACE! It is incredible to be a spectator and an active participant in the world today as perhaps the most intelligent and cunning creature ever created, Lucifer, orchestrates the gradual and intricate destruction and dismantling of all societies and cultures today in this climactic period of the history of the world and of the Body of Christ, the Church. The real drama today is greater than any science fiction movie or book ever could be! Often there is the tendency to speculate that the period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21) will be swift with the nuclear bombs, etc. But we are seeing right before our eyes the incredible preparation by the puppets of Satan for this material, but especially spiritual onslaught and quest for our eternal souls. Also, Satan wants to lead as many away from God before any world wide mass destruction so as to lead as many souls as possible with him for all eternity. If we are able to recognize the traps of Satan and their horrible consequences, we will less likely fall into them.

There might be a tendency when reading the prophetical passages in the Bible that all is rather clear cut and extraordinary. But we must remember that SATAN MUST PATIENTLY WAIT FOR HUMAN BEINGS TO FREELY GIVE THERE WILL TO HIM. Over the centuries, Satan has succeeded in luring many people and groups of people into his web and control. But now, more than ever, due to the fact that now there are many of his puppets in high positions, he is able to accelerate the destruction of souls and society using so much money and power to promote laws and customs which more quickly lead people astray. Satan’s godless groups are more and more united today as they believe more than ever in their blind pride that they can overthrow the Kingdom of God on earth just as Satan thought he could do at the beginning of creation. Our Lady of Fatima told us that wars are not so much caused by the heads of states, but by the collective sins of all of us.

The word “BEAST” referred to in the Book of Revelation (Rev 13:1-10) at FIRST GLANCE SEEMS TO INDICATE A FEROCIOUS, HORRIBLE CREATURE. See below “The Antichrist” about the tremendous capacities of this “first beast”! We read also that the second beast will be “like a lamb” (Rev 13:11). Satan disguises himself as an “angel of light” (2Cor 11:14), a “lamb”, impersonating the true Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. St. Catherine of Siena, as many other saints, wrote that the greatest pain in hell is the absence of God, but that the second worst pain in hell is to actually see how horrible and frightful is Satan. On the contrary, the greatest joy and delight in heaven is the presence of God and then to see God face to face and the incredible beauty of the souls of those who have corresponded with the graces of God.

You will find very numerous references in this article so as to facilitate a crosscheck of the pieces of the puzzle that I have found so far. Have fun as I also have had in seeking to put together this world wide jigsaw puzzle in the most interesting, exciting and decisive period in the history of the world, a world that God created for His creatures as a great testing ground, a “cosmic struggle”, to offer each of us the possibility to freely decide where we want to spend all eternity! It is amazing how many people choose to close their eyes and ears to the signs of our times! Jesus calls these people “HYPOCRITES”! (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3).

Archbishop Fulton Sheen talked about the "Three stages (moments) of a country; Grace and Blessing, Blindness, Judgment” (1954).
Many people do not understand our times because they are too close to them; they are immersed in a succession of events and judging today by yesterday and tomorrow by today. When the hand is too close to the eye, it cannot see the horizon. When we are too close to events we cannot understand them. Our Blessed Lord said that that would always be true. One day He said to the Pharisees: “In the evening when the sky is red, you say tomorrow will be fair; and in the morning when the sky is red and lowering, you say the weather will be foul. How is it that you are able to discern the skies and cannot understand the signs of the times?
Do we understand the signs of our times? What do they portent? In order to know, we have to have a standard. You set your watch by something outside of yourself, outside of the watch. You do not say that this is my idea of time. So there ought to be some outside standard. And the outside standard is God’s way of judging things. And I wonder what He thinks of our times? I think He would weep at our times! He wept three times in His life: once at the death of a friend, Lazarus, when He saw the dissolution of a body, the penalty of sin (Jn 11:35). He wept once again for the death of souls in the garden of Gethsemane, when the blood began to pour from His body, drops from His body fell like a crimson bead, forming a rosary of redemption about the olive roots of Gethsemane (Lk 22:44). And the third time He wept was over a civilization (Lk 19:41). Maybe our times? They will draw tears from the eyes of the God-man! And when as the great patriot He wept over a civilization, He said that there were three moments in every nation’s history. There are three moments in every civilization. First is a moment of grace and a moment of blessing. The second is a moment of blindness. And the third is a moment of judgment!

Without humility and trust in God, we will end up finding the pieces of the puzzle that the enemy holds out for us to find TO DIVERT OUR ATTENTION FROM THE REAL TRUTH and from the truth about their powerful organized deceptions. These egotistical puppets of Satan have systematically scratched out as much as possible the truth in our modern history books about the most influential institution in the making of history in the last 2000 years, the Body of Christ, the divine and human institution founded by Christ on the Rock, the Catholic Church. Thus we must dig hard to find the truth. G.K. Chesterton, an intellectual convert to Catholicism, once wrote that it would be very difficult for one to remain a protestant if he studied the true history of the world and of the Catholic Church.

It is true that we do not know "the day and the hour" of the second coming of the Lord, but we can "know that it is near, even at the doors" (Mt 24:33, 36). God's Word admonishes the Christian to be wise (Mt 10:16) and watchful (Mt 24:42; 2Tim 4:8; Tit 2:13), especially as the day of Christ's return approaches (Heb 10:25). “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates” (Mt 24:32; Mk 13:28; Lk 21:29-31). “YOU HYPOCRITES! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?” (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3).

“ANNOUNCE TO ALL THAT JESUS IS ABOUT TO RETURN” (February 17, 2007; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html).

God wants us, especially in times of great tribulation, to put our trust and confidence in Him (Ps 23:4; 1Pet 3:14) as well as not to fall prey to the powerful snares of the devil. So many people are willing to take risks for many worldly motives, but for God, there are few who are willing to take risks for Him and to trust in Him! IF WE KNOW BEFORE HAND about the types of traps of the devil, we will less likely fall into Satan's eternal pitfalls in this coming crucial period of the world.

18. The Puppets of SatanIf one knows even a little about the history of the world, the powerful have never been satisfied with the power that they have or had acquired. They always wanted more. Many of the super powerful and past dictators of the world even arrived to the point of wanting to be ADORED AS GOD (Hail Cesar! Heil Hitler!)! I do not think that anything has changed. The powerful people of the world who control the economy and petroleum of the world and embezzle from everyone in so many hidden ways, including by way of the Federal Reserve Board and similar entities in each country of the world (which are not controlled or owned or operated by the respective governments), are not content to control and steal from all of us to become very rich and powerful. They want to become ABSOLUTE DICTATORS of the world, just like the dictators of the past. These people, thirsty for power, in our days have worked for many years with incredible patience. When they have everything totally under their control, they will lead as many as possible to adore the image of the beast and to accept the “mark of the beast” (Rev 13,11-18).

It is very interesting the recent comments of Henry Kissinger's about the "NEW WORLD ORDER"! We have known about this for a long time but the real surprising thing is that these super powerful of the world are now so bold, after the election of Obama, that FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER THEY ARE COMING OUT PUBLICLY WITH THEIR INTENTIONS! A PERFECT WORLD! WITHOUT GOD!?!?

“National Day of Prayer ruled unconstitutional - A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled Thursday that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional.” (http://newsweek.washingtonpost.com/onfaith/undergod/2010/04/national_day_of_prayer_ruled_unconstitutional.html).
"If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under." - Ronald Reagan (http://www.baxtercountyrepublicans.com/reagan.html).

It seems that HENRY KISSINGER AND HIS NEW WORLD ORDER COLLEAGUES FEEL THEY NOW HAVE ALL THE CARDS IN THEIR HAND and so they can now come straight out with what they have been working on for so many years. According to Kissinger, without these great saviors of the world, we will stumble “toward the abyss of chaos”! We must submit or else the world planners will have to resort to “some large-scale crisis that will make people accept the new world order” (spoken by David Rockefeller in the late 1990s)! The “New World Order”; such nice sounding words, but what is the real reality under these appealing words? The big shots of the Illuminati and the Freemasons of the New World Order do not have full control, but gain more control the more they lead us to sin and to stop praying.

Kissinger on Obama: "The Reception of him (Obama) is so extraordinary around the world ... a New World Order (or Globalisation as they now prefer to name it) can be created"; January 5, 2009 (http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2009/jan/09010704.html).
“Obama sets stage for 'new world order'”; (http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2009/09/opinionlineobama-sets-stage-for-new-world-order.html). “At U.N., Obama calls for new era in world relations”; (http://edition.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/09/23/obama.un/index.html).

“Barack Obama believes that the United States should be subject to global laws, instead of the United States Constitution.” (http://giovanniworld.wordpress.com/2010/01/05/united-states-justice-foundation-alert/).

Now KISSINGER HAS FORMALIZED HIS VERBAL STATEMENTS in an essay for the “International Herald Tribune”, which is the global edition of the “New York Times”. The essay, entitled, "The chance for a new world order," came out on January 12, when Kissinger was in Beijing. He continues, developing the themes that world leaders can either continue in the present system of sovereign, independent states stumbling toward the abyss of chaos, or take the enlightened path toward world government (http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/election/677). IF WE DO NOT SUBMIT to these great men, these saviors of the world, WE WILL STUMBLE “TOWARD THE ABYSS OF CHAOS”! We should be so, so, so thankful to them for saving us from this catastrophe!?! A perfect world without God! It is interesting that Kissinger wrote his essay in Beijing, CHINA! (See also: www.independent.co.uk/.../henry-kissinger-the-world-must-forge-a-new-order-or-retreat-to-chaos-1451416.html).

May 21, 1992 – In an address to the Bilderberger organization meeting in Evian, France, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger declares: “Today AMERICANS would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they WILL BE GRATEFUL! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil (the evil that they created!). The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.” Kissinger and his godless colleagues do not believe in God and thus have no concept of the truth that rights come from God, not the state!

The CLUB OF ROME plans to divide “the world into ten political/economic regions... which would unite the entire world under a single form of government. These regions are: North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Japan, Rest of Developed World, Latin America, Middle East, Rest of Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and China.”; (http://www.modernhistoryproject.org/mhp/ArticleDisplay.php?Article=FinalWarn08-5).
"The Council on Foreign Relations co-sponsors an assembly Rethinking America's Security: Beyond Cold War to New World Order which is attended by 65 prestigious members of government, labor, academia, the media, military, and the professions from nine countries. Later, several of the conference participants joined some 100 other world leaders for another closed door meeting of the Bilderberg Society in Baden Baden, Germany. The Bilderbergers also exert considerable clout in determining the foreign policies of their respective governments. While at that meeting, David Rockefeller [co-founder (with Zbigniew Brzezinski) of the Trilateral Commission] said in a speech:
'We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and RESPECTED THEIR PROMISES OF DISCRETION FOR ALMOST FORTY YEARS. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination [read as 'democracy'] practiced in past centuries." - June 5, 1991, Bilderberger meeting in Baden Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton) www.mega.nu/ampp/bilderberg.html. [Main source: Dr. Dennis Cuddy, A Chronological History of the New World Order; http://www.crossroad.to/Quotes/globalism/rockefeller.htm]

“NEW WORLD ORDER — A HORRIFIC UTOPIA?” - Excerpts taken from the book entitled, "Europe Today and Tomorrow," by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI): “Today we find ourselves in the midst of a second Enlightenment, which has not only left behind the motto Deus Sive Natura but has also unmasked as irrational the Marxist ideology of hope. In its place it has proposed a rational goal for the future, which is entitled the New World Order and is now supposed to become in its turn the essential ethical norm. It still shares with Marxism the evolutionary idea of a universe brought forth by an irrational event and formed by its intrinsic rules, which however – unlike the provisions of the ancient idea of nature – cannot contain within themselves any ethical direction. … A specifically European feature in this situation today appears to be precisely the separation from all ethical traditions and the exclusive reliance on technological reasoning and its possibilities. But will not a world order with these foundations become in reality a horrific utopia? Does not Europe perhaps need, does not the world perhaps need precisely some corrective elements derived from its great tradition and from the great ethical traditions of mankind? The inviolable nature of human dignity ought to become the fundamental, untouchable pillar of ethical regulations. Only if man recognizes that he is an end (and not a means), only if the human being is sacred and inviolable, can we have confidence in one another and live together in peace. There is no weighing of goods that can justify treating man as experimental material for higher ends.” (http://www.michaeljournal.org/nwoutopia.htm).

These powerful and very rich people, in their pride, believe that they are the ones to be the SAVIORS OF THE WORLD from all its problems. They meet regularly in secret societies (originating from a Mason, Dr. Adam Weishaupt, on May 1, 1776, the Illuminati) such as the Bilderbergers (1954), the Trilateral Commission (1973 - to control both the Republican and Democratic Parties; its founder and primary financial angel was international financier, David Rockefeller), Council on Foreign Relations (1919), Club of Rome (1968), New Age Movement (began in the late 1960s and early 1970s), the Freemasonry, etc., to increase their wealth and power. These groups represent a single elite network of globalists. These groups represent "...a vehicle for MULTINATIONAL CONSOLIDATION OF COMMERCIAL AND BANKING INTERESTS..." - Barry Goldwater. Henry Kissinger is a member of the Bilderbergers and the Trilateral Commission. Learn more about the Bilderberg group: “The rich, shadowy Bilderberg group” ; http://www.freepressinternational.com/2009/05/the-rich-shadowy-bilderberg-group/.

“THE MASTER PLAN TO RULE THE WORLD EXPOSED. 'Hope of the Wicked' reveals greatest deception in modern history. Is there a conspiracy to rule the world? Is there a master plan to bring America under the spell of a one-world order? Who are the Bilderbergers and the members of the Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission? Do they really wield powers over commerce and government around the world?” (http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=36935).

THE GOAL OF THE ILLUMINATI
This quest for a world government has been going on for a long time. For example, on Feburary
17, 1953, Financier Paul Warburg said before the U.S. Senate: “We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent.” This quest for world domination can be traced back to the creation of the “Illuminati”, a secret society, in 1776. Their leader, Adam Weishaupt, wrote out the master plan to bring about the subjection of the whole human race to an oligarchy of Financiers. The word “Illuminati” is derived from Lucifer and means “holders of the light”.
As surprising as it may seem, THE INSIGNIA OF THE ORDER OF THE ILLUMINATI appears on the reverse side of U.S. one-dollar bills. The first time it appeared was in 1933, by order of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, at the beginning of the New Deal (the name given to Roosevelt’s political reforms of that time). One can read at the base of the 13-story pyramid, the year 1776 (MDCCLXVI in Roman numerals). Most of the people think that it represents the date of the signing of the American Declaration of Independence, but it actually memorializes the foundation of the Order of the Illuminati, which was on May 1, 1776. The pyramid represents the conspiracy for the destruction of the Catholic Church (and all existing religions), and the establishment of a one-world government, or a United Nations dictatorship. The eye radiating in all directions, is the “all-spying” eye that symbolizes the terroristic, Gestapo-like, espionage agency that Weishaupt set up to guard the “secret of the Order and to terrorize the populace into the acceptance of its rule.”

A LUCIFERIAN CONSPIRACY
To say that the Illuminati is a “Luciferian conspiracy” is not only a stylistic device, but it is literally true, since THE LEADERS OF THE ILLUMINATI ARE ACTUALLY WORSHIPERS OF SATAN, and their final objective is to have the whole world bow down to him. Through his hellhounds, it is Satan himself who continues his revolt against God by endeavoring to foil God’s plan on earth, and to snatch from God as many souls as possible. Just like Satan, the Financiers think that they are smarter than God, and that they are the only ones who can lead mankind properly. The members of the Illuminati are people of every race and creed, but who all lust for money and power. (http://www.michaeljournal.org/The%20Microchip.pdf).

Perhaps some of the members of these groups are of good will and do not see how they are being used and manipulated in an overall plan to slowly take over the world. Many become Freemasons to get ahead in the business world even though the Church has made over 500 magisterial interventions of the Popes about the evils of Freemasonry and that it is A GRAVE SIN TO BE A MEMBER OF THE FREEMASONRY at any degree and that a Catholic cannot receive Holy Communion if he is a member of the Freemasons (e.g., 11-26-1983, Joseph Card. Ratzinger). But the great majority of these super-rich are blind in their pride and do not realize that they, in fact, are the puppets of Satan. Satan’s human pawns may not know that they are marionettes, but Satan knows it! These devious men use any and every means to arrive at their goal of total world domination including the manipulation of races, religions, peoples, terrorists groups, whole ethnic groups (such as fanatical Muslims etc.) and religious nations, godless feminists movements, the mass media, international banks, petroleum,... so that, when they are ready, they will step forward to offer themselves as the solution for the problem they created in the world. They will be our saviors, but without the one and only true God. Only the very few at the very top of the echelon of these secret societies, who are close enough to their real head, Satan, consciously realize that the real overall game plan is to deprive the Creator of the company of His creatures for all eternity!

We find in “A MANUSCRIPT ON PURGATORY”: “France is indeed very guilty, but unfortunately she is not the only one. At this moment (1880) there is not a single Christian kingdom that is not openly or by underhanded means trying to expel God from its midst. The secret societies and their master, the devil, are tormenting and stirring all this trouble. This is now the hour of the prince of darkness. While he is in power he may do his worst, but God will show that He alone is Master. He may use severity to manifest His power, but even in His vengeance, Jesus is yet always merciful.” (http://purgatory-manu.blogspot.com).

Each co-worker in the militia of Satan receives his recompense of the delusion of PRIDE AS SOMEONE IMPORTANT in the great enterprise of being the great leaders and designers of the “New World Order”, just as the youth and adults in the Third Reich of Hitler, and in so many other dictatorships in the history of the world. There is no honor among thieves, and so too these proud people destroying the world believe to be important people at least for now. But in the end they will be under the horrible rules and regime that they helped to create. They will end up in the hell hole they created. The beast “causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark” (Rev 13:16-17).

Satan cannot attack God directly, so Satan does all he can to attack God indirectly. The real battle is not one of taking over the countries or the world or the economomy, etc. THE REAL BATTLE IS A SPIRITUAL BATTLE between God with his humble and loving followers, and Satan with his proud and egotistical followers. “For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph 6:12). At stake is eternity with God in extreme bliss and happiness and true freedom, or eternity with Satan in extreme pain of the depravation of the presence of the Creator from the creature which is a pain far worse than all the fires of hell!

19. The Controlled Destruction of the US DollarLess than a hundred years ago these super-rich succeeded in deceiving each government in the world to turn over to them (i.e., the FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD, etc.) the power to print money or insert into our economic systems as much money as they decided without any governmental control or government profit; before this trickery, inflation did not exist. Who is profiting by this insertion of money into the economic system? Certainly not the people who live in each respective country! Only a few years ago the dollar was stronger than the Euro. What is the real cause of this rapid change? Economist tell us that before the elections of November 2008 the world’s total wealth was measured at 47 trillion dollars; less than six months later the world’s total worth is less than 25 trillion dollars. In less than two months (January to March 2009) the Obama administration has spent almost FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS, while reducing military spending and increasing the police force within our the U.S. (visit “The Sack Lunches”: http://god-politics.blogspot.com/2009/11/sack-lunches.html). Was there not a great inflation of currency in Germany before Hitler came to power? Was there not a great economic crisis before communism came to power in Russia? Do not all these “BAILOUTS” shift all the money and power to the national government, forcing all who receive this money to do exactly as the dictators on high dictate or else loose the money from these bailouts? Contrast this way of doing things with the Gospels where Jesus clearly indicates that God totally respects our free wills and gently calls each of us toward to truth which will make us truly free (Jn 8)!

After only one year in office, Obama and his New World Order colleagues have succeeded in creating a national American debt that is equal to about half of the world’s total worth! The dollar is already destroyed but is being held up artificially UNTIL THEY ARE READY TO PULL THE RUG OUT FROM UNDER and destroy America and force the world more fully under their absolute control and tyranny.

Associate Director of Tyche Martin Hennecke warned in a CNBC interview this morning (March 23, 2009) that actions such as the Treasury’s announcement today to buy $1 trillion more of toxic debt, allied with last week’s announcement by the Fed to throw a further $1 trillion at the problem, is merely A CONTINUATION OF WHAT CAUSED THE CRISIS IN THE FIRST PLACE and that such measures will ultimately lead to THE DESTRUCTION OF MAJOR WESTERN CURRENCIES AND STAGGERING HYPERINFLATION. “The budget deficit is already out of control, we might be talking about $3 trillion U.S. dollars (January 2009), which is 20 per cent of GDP, which is absolutely staggering,” said Hennecke, reiterating that easy money was what caused the problems in the first place.

June 2010: U.S. is falling Into a DOUBLE-DIP RECESSION. Only 41,000 jobs were added by the private sector last month. It's one sign the economy is headed toward a double-dip recession. The Labor Department reports this morning that the private sector added a measly 41,000 net new jobs in May. (The vast bulk of new jobs in May were temporary government Census workers.) But at least 100,000 new jobs are needed every month just to keep up with population growth. In other words, the labor market continues to deteriorate. The average length of unemployment continues to rise – now up to 34.4 weeks (up from 33 weeks in April). That’s another record.

“HYPERINFLATION WILL BEGIN IN CHINA AND DESTROY THE DOLLAR” (http://www.marketskeptics.com/2009/01/hyperinflation-will-begin-in-china-and.html).
THE US NOW HAS A GREAT TRADE IMBALANCE WITH CHINA. The US is issuing IOU’s everyday; the US now has a staggering 12 trillion dollar debt (August 2009). Ten percent of this is owned by China; China is the lease holder. For decades the US has had cheap Chinese made goods come into the major stores of this country which sold like hot cakes; much of this money has gone back into pumping up the dollar by buying treasury instruments to keep Chinese goods cheap. China is financing it’s selling of goods to the US by buying back treasury instruments. It’s a large vender financing scheme. Almost a trillion treasury instruments are held by China. The US is joined at the hip with China because of the ongoing trade imbalance. But we now find ourselves in a position that if they were to dump even a fraction of those treasury instruments, they would cause a run on the dollar, a collapse of our currency and send us into a serious economic crisis. I do not think China is a nation, the People’s Republic of China, that we want to be beholden to in this way. But the “New World Order” will probably not have China pull the plug on our economy until it has established it’s alternative new currency to replace the dollar as the world's standard (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123780272456212885.html). On the other hand, the controllers of the “New World Order” might go directly to a cashless society after they crash the world economic markets and then offer their diabolical “solution” for the problem that they caused: the imbedded microchip for all the inhabitants of the world.

GLOBAL CONTROL THROUGH THE RFID CHIP - TOTAL SURVEILLANCE AND A CASHLESS SOCIETY
These current economic and social crises are leading to a global, financial “melt down” that the powerful global elite are using in order to establish a Global Financial Economic System. This will give centralized power to the United Nation’s International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, creating a type of “Global Federal Reserve System”. This is setting the stage for a cashless electronic currency with a high tech surveillance RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip implanted under one’s skin. The Global Elite, blinded by their thirst for power, orchestrate obtaining total control over the people in the excuse of providing for more transparency; a greater surveillance of the world financial markets, cross border firms, money laundering, terrorist financing, etc… They believe that they are the only ones capable of governing mankind properly. However, these globalists know very well that people will not easily give up their freedom of the use of cash to accept these “bio-chips” unless there is a worldwide panic, be it financial or maybe even flu pandemic to convince the population that the only way not to lose everything is to accept the RFID chip.

"THERE IS NO MEANS OF AVOIDING A FINAL COLLAPSE of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved." - Ludwig Von Mises (2010 Predictions: A List of Lists from Around the Web; http://www.shtfplan.com/forecasting/2010-predictions-a-list-of-lists-from-around-the-web_12312009).

These super rich are also earning less now that they have begun the economic downturn. What is their REAL GOAL now? Both Bush and Obama (controlled by the Trilateral Commission) spent trillions on the bailouts after the economic crisis was created by these world controllers (See: “HOW BANKS WERE BULLIED INTO MAKING BAD LOANS” at http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=94031).

In the media we hear about multiple explanations for the financial collapse of 2008-2009. GEORGE SCHWARTZ, CFA, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF SCHWARZ INVESTMENT COUNSEL (http://www.schwartzinvest.com/), author of the new book, “Good Returns: Making Money by Morally Responsible Investing” offered the following explanation. “It was essential a collapse of the housing market, which was a bubble financed by Freddie Mac Fannie Mae, the government-subsidized housing corporations, which by the way were supported and urged on by Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, Christopher Dodd and a new, young, up and coming senator from Illinois named Barack Obama. There is the claim that George Bush did not do enough; he knew about this; he could have stopped this. It is true that George Bush was not without some errors, that’s for sure, particularly the spending he did which was outrageous, so he was a disappointment to us conservatives. But he did do some wonderful things in the pro-life area and he kept us safe for a long time after 9/11. But the housing bubble was basically made in Washington by democrat Senators and Congressmen. And it inflated the housing market to the point where it was unsustainable. Wall Street had a helping hand in that and they are not without blame. Those four men mentioned above were primarily responsible for this. And guess what. When Freddie and Fannie were making campaign contributions, guess who were the four biggest recipients of their large donations? Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, Christopher Dodd and Barack Obama!

It is virtually impossible to comprehend how much is one trillion dollars! Today 4 trillion dollars, which has been spent by the US government from October 2008 to March 2009, is about the equivalent of one sixth of the world’s entire economic value! By now (August 2009) the US has a debt of almost half the value of the entire world, 12 trillion dollars! When these prideful powerful people finally decide to crash the economy, THEY WILL MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT THE REAL CAUSE IS FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE (George Bush?) and that they are the saviors of the world! Of course their highly controlled mass media greatly assists in their endeavors. They are creating the problem and them convincing us that: “We Need Greater Global Governance - The crisis reveals the weakness of nation-based regulation” (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124536757998629319.html).

Twenty two trillion dollars are now gone in months. That would have taken hundreds of thousands of years in previous ages to accumulate. IT IS THE BIGGEST EVAPORATION OF WEALTH IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD! We are seeing the absolute economic melt down of the entire western world, the USA at the head of the list. It’s going to happen; it is happening right before our very eyes in living color as we see in the highly controlled news media.

It is ironic that these world jackasses who have patiently and diligently worked to lead us to a socialistic dictatorship have concentrated on infiltrating and manipulating especially the countries which have become wealthy precisely because these countries were the furthest away from socialism. This strategy has given the socialistic manipulators the money and power to accelerate their trust toward world socialistic dictatorship even though they will end up DESTROYING THE CHICKEN THAT LAID THE GOLDEN EGG by way of free enterprise and capitalism. In the end, the U.S. will have to be totally brought to its knees because the Americans are too used to freedom and not used to a socialistic dictatorship. For the socialists, freedom is anathema as it is in hell!

It seems that not only Obama, but also Bill Clinton have SUCKED OUT THE U.S. TECHNOLOGY before the New World Order takes over.

GINGRICH: OBAMA IS NO LONGER A CENTRIST. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich needs only four pages of his new book, "To Save America," to make his most explosive allegations against President Obama's policies, which he characterizes as a creation of a "secular-socialist machine." "The secular-socialist machine," writes Gingrich, "represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did." Gingrich was unflinching on the assertion when I spoke with him this week, declaring that those regimes, had they prevailed, "would have ended the American experiment in freedom." Obama's policies including government control in the banking, auto, mortgage, health care and student loan industries, represent no less a threat, says the potential 2012 presidential candidate. The Obama administration, continued Gingrich, "is a direct threat to our liberty and a direct threat to the country we have historically been. "They are specifically anti-religious; they are explicitly anti-free enterprise; they think the government can dominate the citizens, that the politicians can decide how much you earn, how much you're allowed to keep and who they ought to give it to," said the ex-Speaker, just warming up. This strong rhetoric marks an about face for Gingrich, who said on my radio show a year ago that he did not believe Obama was a socialist.

THE FUTURE OF CAPITALISM: As the president and his team push forward with what they promise is one final drive for passing health care reform, and the Republicans dig in feverishly for what they promise is one final effort to defeat it, we can now see the real subject of this marathon political drama. Health care has only been the purported subject of the argument. In fact, the actual debate has been about capitalism. Specifically, the two sides have been wrestling about the future shape of capitalism in America, and doing it at a critically important time. The world economy is still in shambles from the wanton ways of Wall Street. Globalization has not only brought new players onto the competitive field, it has also introduced whole new versions of capitalism that operate in ways fundamentally different from the U.S. model.

HISTORIAN PAM GELLER WRITES:
I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied history all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes, these exist but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.
Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. A perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for years. THE PACE HAS DRAMATICALLY QUICKENED IN THE PAST TWO….

“OBAMA BLAMES "LAST EIGHT YEARS" for Rejection of His Brand of Change. Obama and the Democrats in Congress must realize they are to blame. They were given power 14 months ago on Nov 4th, 2008 when they told us to vote for the Hope of Change. What we got instead was the Hoax of Chains. The chains of lost freedom, unemployment, reduced security and an increased national debt greater than the gross domestic product of the world.” (http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=4ff_1264689666).

20. A Little Gun HistoryIn 1911, TURKEY established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1929, the SOVIET UNION established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
GERMANY established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
CHINA established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
GUATEMALA established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
UGANDA established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
CAMBODIA established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 MILLION!
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in AUSTRALIA were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own Government, a program costing Australian taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The FIRST YEAR RESULTS are now in:
1) Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent; 2) Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent; 3) Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!; 4) In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
5) There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort, and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it...
You will not see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

England and Canada are having similar problems and are beginning to worry about only the criminals having guns.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.
During WWII the JAPANESE decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

Switzerland issues every household a gun! Switzerland 's government trains every adult they issue a rifle. Switzerland has the lowest gun related crime rate of any civilized country in the world!!!

THIS IS A NO BRAINER! DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET. (BECAUSE THE BAD GUYS WILL STILL HAVE THEIR GUNS).
To solve the problem of violence today, we must GO TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM! I am a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! Our founding fathers knew well the “Folly of Government” as well as the madness of the mob as seen in the French revolution who threw out all authority and ended up with a worse situation afterwards. Our founding fathers, from experience, knew that history shows that the greatest thief and tyrant in the end is the government which has no authority above it and which no longer responds to the desires of the people. Thus these founders tried their best to write a constitution with checks and balances so that each of the three branches of the government would help to check the human tendency to accrue power and control over the other two branches. But our founders also had the wisdom and spiritual insight to realize that the best democratic government is only as good as the people who elect them.

These manipulated government bureaucrats are having a very difficult time overcoming the 2nd Amendment, so they will probably succeed in taking away our bullets!

Just think how powerful our government is getting! They think these other countries just didn't do it right. Learn from history!

Before the world planners cause a major crisis in order to bring the U.S. totally to it’s knees without any possibility of a viable reaction or sustainable resistance from the U.S. citizens, THEY MUST TAKE AWAY OUR GUNS. This is a very important priority for these ruthless global manipulators.
When Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, the forward assault troops were ordered to attack and take control of the local police station as a first priority. Poland had a very liberal version of the 2nd Amendment (fashioned after the US Constitution) but the citizens who owned handguns and long guns were required to register their names, addresses and list of weapons with the local police station. So the problem for the German army was pretty well solved by the registration process.
YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN HERE! WELL, HERE IT COMES!!! Gun control by secrecy! If you think this is a joke, go to the website and take your pick of the many options in this dastardly bill to undermine and negate the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the U.S. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. “HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009”; (http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text).

“WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Supreme Court announced today (Sept. 30, 2009) that it will hear the case of McDonald v.

THEY WILL KEEP COMING UNTIL WE ARE DISARMED AND ARE TOTALLY THEIR SLAVES! They have succeeded in diverting our attention towards illicit and destructive pleasures so as to take fundamental control of our government from we complacent American citizens. By now they have just about all the cards in their hands; it is only a question of time. They can play with us like a cat plays with a bird that is already down and wounded; when the cat is ready, it eats the bird! We have already forfeited our power and control over our government, our nation and our future. We can still pray, but there are far to many who trust only in themselves and material solutions and so very few who truly believe and trust in God as the real solution. “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” (Mt 19:26).

"When only cops have guns, it's called a "police state". Love your country, but never trust it’s government" - Robert A. Heinlein.
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government" - Thomas Jefferson.

URGENT: Hillary Clinton Signs UN Small Arms Treaty - U.S. agrees to timetable for UN Gun Ban. The United Nations and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are moving forward with their plan to confiscate your guns. The United States joined 152 other countries in support of the Arms Trade Treaty Resolution, which establishes the dates for the 2012 UN conference intended to attack American sovereignty by stripping Americans of the right to keep and bear arms. Working groups of anti-gun countries will begin scripting language for the conference this year, creating a blueprint for other countries when they meet at the full conference.” (http://bonfiresblog.wordpress.com/2010/05/23/urgent-hillary-clinton-signs-un-small-arms-treaty/).

21. Cyber Attacks From China!We know for a fact that not just last year, but for the last ten years there has been an ongoing series of cyber attacks, originating from China, on all sorts of installations in the US, not just the Pentagon, not just the government organizations, but also private major companies. China is the only country that we know of that has a FOURTH DEPARTMENT OF THE MILITARY (after the army, navy and air force), a department of cyber warfare which employees tens of thousands of people. Thus they are the likely source of these attacks They have succeeded in the past of penetrating the Pentagon’s computer networks, downloading our contingency plans for bolstering our forces in the far east in the case of a crisis, etc. These are serious matters that need to be addressed in a serious fashion. This is a new front of warfare that people do not even think about. China is the only country in the world today that could muster up an army of at least 200,000,000 soldiers as predicted in the Book of Revelations killing “a third of mankind” with “fire and smoke and sulphur” indicating nuclear warfare (Rev 9:15-16,18). By now there are tens of millions of young men in China who can no longer find a wife due to the forced “one child policy” supported, to a great degree, by the tax payers of the U.S. thanks to the Obama administration and Planned Parenthood.

RIGHT NOW THE CYBER ATTACKS ARE BASICALLY AN INFORMATION GATHERING OPERATION. But if they gather enough information about key infrastructures in the U.S. and the computers and the software that control these infrastructures, the lights could go out, the GPS could stop working, the trucks could stop running down the highway that supply us with food and fuel, etc. They could cause a major economic crisis in the U.S. without even firing a shot, but rather by just firing streams of electrons at us. The goal of China is to become the dominant power not just in Asia but in larger parts of the world, and it seems they are going toward this goal as rapidly as they can. China will soon have the second largest economy in the world. As the GNP of the U.S. declines because of the recession, China’s GNP is still growing about 5-10% each year. China is also a creditor nation; they have trillions of dollars in the bank. The U.S. now has to go out begging to pay it’s bills. THIS IS NOT A POSITION THAT WE SHOULD BE IN!

STEVEN MOSHER has authored two books: "China Attacks," a realistic look at a future Chinese blitz on Taiwan and "Hegemon: China's Plan to Dominate Asia and the World," a short history of China, its global ambitions, attracting significant attention after Steven Mosher's appearance on C-SPAN2's Book TV.

Other possible goals, such as modernizing U.S. nuclear forces for deterrence purposes, are now considered either transitory or subordinate to taking steps toward “nuclear zero.” In itself, banning nuclear weapons is not a new U.S. goal; Ronald Reagan also supported it.

Having the mass media and the latest psychological and marketing techniques totally in their hands, the New World Order planners can also put false information on the web so as to “CRY WOLF” TOO SOON or too often so that no one listens any more to the “cry wolf”. Perhaps a possible example of this would be the so-called “truthers” such as “U.S. Forces Plan Direct Action Against American Citizens” (http://www.eutimes.net/2009/12/us-forces-plan-direct-action-against-american-citizens/). Of course cartoons are also used: “GOP Conspiracy Theories” (http://politicalhumor.about.com/od/politicalcartoons/ig/Political-Cartoons/GOP-Conspiracy-Theories.htm). This is also a way of undermining the message and the truth that the Tea Party movement is trying to reveal to the sleeping majority spiritually and mentally drugged and intoxicated and thus unaware in their ever-growing egoism and blindness due to not heeding the call of God in their hearts and in divine revelation. Satan uses this standard tactic even in regards to private revelations. In 1882, Christ revealed to the stigmatist, Marie Julie Jahenny of La Fraudais, France that: "In the last days, a seemingly unlimited amount of FALSE REVELATIONS will arise from hell like a swarm of flies; a last attempt of Satan to choke and to destroy the efficacy of the TRUE REVELATIONS by false ones."

22. The Folly of GovernmentIS IT THE NBA OR THE NFL? 36 have been accused of spousal abuse; 7 have been arrested for fraud; 19 have been accused of writing bad checks; 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses; 3 have done time for assault; 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit; 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges; 8 have been arrested for shoplifting; 21 currently are defendants in lawsuits; and 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year. Can you guess which organization this is? Neither, it's the 435 members of the United States Congress, the same group of Idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line!

In our systems of electing government officials around the world, why is it so difficult for a person who is more motivated by genuine altruism, love of his Creator and love of his fellow creatures, to end up being elected? Without wasting words in a long analysis of this state of affairs, may I just say that a government, especially a supposedly democratic government, is only as good as the people who elect that government in their respective countries.

WHICH SIDE OF THE FENCE?
If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.
If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.
If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)
If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

23. SOCIALISM!WHAT IS SOCIALISM? Socialism is probably best defined by what it is against. It is against liberty. It is against property. And it is against the idea of limited government. What is socialism for? Socialism is for equality in the sense of sameness; everything must remain the same, that difference is a bad thing. Socialism is for so-called “Efficient Rational Control” by the government. It is also about power; it is about the centralization of power within the state and the diminution of freedom and decision making powers throughout the rest of society. It takes many forms of course, but if you look at most core socialist thinkers, most of whom are basically Marxists, these are the common themes that you will find running through all of their writings. Socialism and a free society are not able to coexist because they have very different visions about where the locus of human freedom is. They have very different priorities, one that is liberty, the other that is equality. One is about the decentralization of power and the creation of authentic human community; the other is about the centralization of power and the erection of the state as the only real legitimate community. In fact in the socialist society, you do not have a civil society anymore - civil society being those intermediate institutions that exist between the family and the state. You do not even have the family. All you have is the state and the individual, nothing in between, no other links to other people except through your relationship to the government. That is how socialism gradually breaks down the social bonds that I think most of us have traditionally taken for granted.

As POPE LEO XIII pointed out as long ago as 1891 in his encyclical ”RERUM NOVARUM”, socialism does not help the poor. Rather, it reduces everyone to the same lowest common denominator of poverty and misery while at the same time drying up the very sources of capital. History very clearly shows us that every time socialism was installed as the national government’s economic policy, that which these Popes wrote in the last 150 years came true. Of course the ones in control remained or became super rich. Socialism reduces everyone to misery in a real economic crisis and so people then look for a messiah, Hitler, Stalin, etc. To allow socialism to become a country’s economic system is the KISS OF DEATH not only for an economy but for a whole society.

“Freedom: America truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don't Let Freedom Slip Away”. “We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany , where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn't have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living. Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group -- Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria . WE WERE PROMISED THAT A VOTE FOR HITLER WOULD MEAN THE END OF UNEMPLOYMENT AND HELP FOR THE FAMILY. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.” (http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=389140939011).

Look at Hitler’s PATIENT PREPARATION to get as many as possible on his side before openly becoming the dictator of Germany. With CULTURAL SOCIALISM, they are preparing for a world dictatorship with even more patience and thoroughness today!

POPES LEO XIII AND PIUS XI WROTE SEVERAL SOCIAL ENCYCLICALS explaining very clearly the great deception and dangers and evils of socialism many years ago, which are so amazingly relevant for our times as if they were written yesterday! The encyclicals of the Popes, the Church’s teachings, have a TREMENDOUS BALANCE. The Church condemns unbridled capitalism that would despise the poor and think only of the bottom line. Capitalism, if it runs amuck, certainly can be problematic and can cause a lot of suffering as we are seeing in the present day with an increase of the poor and the concentration of the wealth in the hands of the few. We see bankruptcy while many corporate executives are rich. I truly believe that this down fall of capitalism is greatly facilitate and guided and manipulated by our “world saviors” who have poised the world on the edge of economic ruin. The TEMPTATION is very strong for the PENDULUM TO SWING TOO FAR TO THE LEFT into the failed and immoral system of socialism, which is exactly what the world conspirators want and have orchestrated. Historically pure socialism has never worked, philosophically it cannot work, and morally it is inherently evil (because it undermines the right of private property ownership, an inherent human right) and hence should be avoided even if we are coerced and manipulated in that direction. We run the risk of A MUCH GREATER EVIL coming in. A few people get fantastically wealthy, and then the pendulum swings to the extreme. And then the tremendous temptation of socialism comes in. “A REVOLT IS BREWING in the middle class” (http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=55834). The social teachings of the Church offer us a tremendous and desperately needed balance and equilibrium between these two extremes.

Socialism is not just a vague idea that these Popes disagreed with. There were forces in society, even 150 years ago, that were marshaling large numbers of people to bring about these socialist communist movements that ended up with the destruction of hundreds of millions of people. People forget this. People blame religion as being THE GREATEST CAUSE OF WAR AND DESTRUCTION in the history of the world when it was actually these BIG GOVERNMENTS in the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and communist China responsible for over 300 million deaths. This is amazing and frightening!

We have been prepared for the revolutionary socialists by what might be called the patient, but MORE DANGEROUS REFORMED SOCIALISTS who have worked within the system to capture the major cultural engines of society: the universities, schools, the media, and even the religious institutions as well. These reformed socialists realized that the CULTURE IS THE MOVER OF HISTORY, not so much economics as Marx taught. If you can shape the way that people think about the world, man and God, then everything gets filtered through this particular lens. It is then inevitable that people start thinking in this way, especially in the universities. Both of these fundamental types of socialism have the same goal and the same world view: the way they see man, who man is, the world, what is the world, and God, who God is. Cultural socialism is similar to the “Trojan Horse”, which slips in as a “gift”, with nice sounding words and rhetoric and promises, and then the treachery and deceit come out later to destroy the culture and society! “Beverly Eakman on the effects of the psychologized classroom; Dangers of Public Education” (http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?t=235381).

We must remember that socialism is not just an economic phenomenon such as an economic collectivization with the state running the economy, etc. All this is true. But if you go back to the early writers who first conceptualized the idea of SOCIALISM, you find IT IS ABOUT POWER, CONTROL and about trying to organize a society without any respect for the fact that society is made up of individual persons, that societies are made up of free associations. Socialists do not admit that individuals have this remarkable capacity that we call free will, free choice. Socialism cannot deal with this issue of free will.

The person who first used the term socialism was a French philosopher named Henri de Saint-Simon of the 19th century. By socialism he had in mind a very technical, technocratic orientation towards organizing society. And the primary principle driving the society was that of efficiency. He thought that if you could CONTROL SOCIETY FROM THE TOP DOWN, with a small group of people at the top who basically organize everything and everyone else, then you would be able to realize what he called a socialist system. In later years with people like Marx and Engels, you get a much more explicitly economic dimension to this. They saw socialism as a pathway towards communism. By that they meant that if we are going to arrive at a communist society then we need to speed history up; Lenin was particularly insistent upon this. The way that you do this is that you have a dictatorship of the proletariat who run the societies so that we will eventually arrive at this utopia in which “everyone will be free to live happily, to fish, hunt and play”, which was the expression that Marx used.

A Manifesto on the “Manifesto” May 7th, 2010 by Dr. Paul Kengor.”
“I knew the time would come. America’s public schools and ideologically monolithic universities have spawned A GENERATION WOEFULLY UNINFORMED in the most elementary facts about free markets, socialism, and communism. Personally, after teaching this material for years, I’m getting an inordinate number of questions about communism in particular, as that word is bandied about like crazy—the result of America’s decisive lurch leftward since the election of November 2008.
There’s so much to say, especially about communism in practice, where the story is unprecedented misery: a death toll of 100-140 million human beings since 1917. That’s twice the combined corpses of WWI and WWII. But what about communism as a theory? We constantly hear the claim: “Communism in theory is not as bad as communism in practice. If you read Marx, you’ll see that communism promotes sharing, equality, love of man.” In truth, this is arrant nonsense. When I hear it, I know the person has never read Marx’s Communist Manifesto, a plainly awful book, packed with hatred and, frankly, stupidity. But rather than just say this, I thought I’d attempt a public service by laying out key facts on the Communist Manifesto—another teachable moment. So, here we go: …” Read the rest at: http://catholicexchange.com/2010/05/07/130038/.

Pope Benedict XVI indicated that when Lenin achieved the Bolshevik revolution, he must have realized that the master, KARL MARX, HAD NO GAME PLAN. So you end up with a perpetual dictatorship of the proletariat. Pope Benedict XVI wrote in his encyclical “Spe Salvi”: “Together with the victory of the revolution, though, Marx's fundamental error also became evident. He showed precisely how to overthrow the existing order, but he did not say how matters should proceed thereafter. He simply presumed that with the expropriation of the ruling class, with the fall of political power and the socialization of means of production, the new Jerusalem would be realized. Then, indeed, all contradictions would be resolved, man and the world would finally sort themselves out. Then everything would be able to proceed by itself along the right path, because everything would belong to everyone and all would desire the best for one another. Thus, having accomplished the revolution, Lenin must have realized that the writings of the master gave no indication as to how to proceed. True, Marx had spoken of the interim phase of the dictatorship of the proletariat as a necessity which in time would automatically become redundant. This “intermediate phase” we know all too well, and we also know how it then developed, not ushering in a perfect world, but leaving behind a trail of appalling destruction. Marx not only omitted to work out how this new world would be organized—which should, of course, have been unnecessary. His silence on this matter follows logically from his chosen approach. His error lay deeper. He forgot that man always remains man. He forgot man and he forgot man's freedom. He forgot that freedom always remains also freedom for evil. He thought that once the economy had been put right, everything would automatically be put right. His real error is materialism: man, in fact, is not merely the product of economic conditions, and it is not possible to redeem him purely from the outside by creating a favorable economic environment.” (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/encyclicals/documents/hf_ben-xvi_enc_20071130_spe-salvi_en.html).

THE SOCIALISTS HAVE ALWAYS WANTED A GREATER EQUALIZATION OF SOCIETY. For them this does not mean a greater treating of people with equal dignity which is how Christians understand the idea of equality. For Catholics, it is not about sameness, it is not about everything being the same; it is about people being treated as human beings precisely because they are human beings. For the socialists equalization really means leveling society so that difference becomes anathema. And we see this when it comes to the homosexual movement in the way they are trying to level the definition of marriage. We see this in the negation that God created human beings male and female; but our culture today says that in order to be equal, men have to become women, and women men, despite the fundamental intrinsic unity within the complimentarity of our being. We see this happening in the economy. These little gods are trying to level the amount of income. This leveling effect is extremely important in the way that they understand progress.

This not only applies to individuals but also to nations, to bring all down to the common denominator (not up to a common denominator!). AND THUS ALL NATIONS AND SOVEREIGNTIES MUST BE LEVELED. This was one of the big themes that was articulated by liberation theologians in the 1970’s and 1980’s. They espoused that the poor nations are poor because of the wealthy nations. To resolve this situation they did not propose the lifting of the poor out of poverty, not by creating wealth, not by opening up markets to trade, exchange, or encouraging entrepreneurship. They declared that they have to make sure that the wealthy countries are brought down to their level, so that everyone becomes like the poor. That is really what they had in mind by the idea of progress.

IT IS TRULY AMAZING HOW OBAMA, with his well rehearsed rhetoric and with the help of the godless liberal media, criticize those trying to lead us back to the system of free enterprise which has given to our country, up until now, the greatest standard of living ever known.

POPE BENEDICT XVI explicitly described this idea as erroneous in his encyclical letter “Caritas In Veritate”: “It is nevertheless erroneous to hold that the market economy has an inbuilt need for a quota of poverty and underdevelopment in order to function at its best. It is in the interests of the market to promote emancipation. … The processes of globalization, suitably understood and directed, open up the unprecedented possibility of large-scale redistribution of wealth on a world-wide scale; if badly directed, however, they can lead to an increase in poverty and inequality, and could even trigger a global crisis.” (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/encyclicals/documents/hf_ben-xvi_enc_20090629_caritas-in-veritate_en.html).

WHAT SHOULD BE IMPORTANT is not so much how much wealth the wealthy have, but WHETHER WE CAN BRING EVERYONE ELSE OUT OF POVERTY. The poor are not raised out of poverty by just leveling everything down. This is how socialists and socialist democrats typically talk about progress; this is how it plays out economically. For the socialists, it is not about wealth creation, about making the pie bigger. It is about making sure that everyone is exactly the same.

In terms of it’s fundamental view of the human person, POPE JOHN PAUL II pointed out in his encyclical “CENTESIMUS ANNUS” (1991) that the problem with socialism is that it denies the reality of human free choice and free will. It is clear with Marx and Engels, they had a major problem with the family, marriage, and religion, specifically Catholicism. They were very deterministic in that all is determinate in what they call historical materialism. “Socialism considers the individual person simply as an element, a molecule within the social organism, so that THE GOOD OF THE INDIVIDUAL IS COMPLETELY SUBORDINATED TO THE FUNCTIONING OF THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC MECHANISM.” (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_01051991_centesimus-annus_en.html).

Contrast this socialistic tendency and thrust to focus on efficiency and production, with what Pope John Paul II called the FEMININE “GENIUS” which helps societies to focus on the human person. Without this feminine “genius”, society ends up doing many things but looses sight of the proper motive and use for all this “progress”. “In our own time, the successes of science and technology make it possible to attain material well-being to a degree hitherto unknown. While this favors some, it pushes others to the edges of society. In this way, unilateral progress can also lead to a gradual loss of sensitivity for man, that is, for what is essentially human. In this sense, our time in particular awaits the manifestation of that "genius" which belongs to women, and which can ensure sensitivity for human beings in every circumstance: because they are human! - and because "the greatest of these is love" (cf. 1 Cor 13:13).”; Mulieris Dignitatem; Pope John Paul II (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/apost_letters/documents/hf_jp-ii_apl_15081988_mulieris-dignitatem_en.html).

For us Catholics, on ash Wednesday, the priests sprinkles ashes on the heads of the faithful saying: “Remember, you are dust and to dust you shall return!” Who is God and who are we? GOD HAS AN INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL DESIGN FOR EACH ONE OF US FROM ALL ETERNITY! But if we trust more in ourselves than in our omnipotent Creator, we are like a conductor of a train who feels there is more freedom and fun going off the train tracks that were established by God, printed in our hearts. Then the world with the TV, mass media, the culture of death, etc., convince us that we are more happy with our train of life in the sand of our pleasures of sex, drugs, domination over others, taking advantage of others for our own egotistical and prideful desires, etc. To be able to return to the train tracks created and established by the infinite Creator, one has to make a true conversion by praying for humility to be able to admit that God knows better than we, and to trust in Him, to turn away from ourselves to Him, and then to make a good examine of conscience and sacramental confession. Then back on the train tracks, we then have the liberty to travel throughout the world on these tracks already laid by our loving Creator for our true freedom (Jn 8)! And furthermore, who can find and provide for us more happiness, we who are made of dust, or our infinite Creator who loves each of us immensely and personally? Who do we trust? Are we full of pride or humility in truth?

“THE RIGHT TO THE EXERCISE OF FREEDOM… is an inalienable requirement of the dignity of the human person. This right must be recognized and protected by civil authority.” (CCC 1738).
ONE’S “CONSCIENCE MUST BE INFORMED and moral judgment enlightened. A well-formed conscience is upright and truthful…” (CCC 1783-1785).
Lord Acton phrased this by “Liberty is not the power of doing what we like, but the right of being able to do what we ought.”

Mark Shea quotes G.K. CHESTERTON, “If there is one fact we really can prove, from the history that we really do know, it is that despotism can be a development, often a late development and very often indeed the end of societies that have been highly democratic. A DESPOTISM MAY ALMOST BE DEFINED AS A TIRED DEMOCRACY. As fatigue falls on a community, the citizens are less inclined for that eternal vigilance which has truly been called the price of liberty; and they prefer to arm only one single sentinel to watch the city while they sleep.” (http://markshea.blogspot.com/2009/02/how-democracies-become-tyrannies.html).

Archbishop Fulton Sheen (“Servant of God”) pointed out the contrast between the totalitarian nations of the world, where religion was suppressed, and the western world. He would say in totalitarian countries, they have the cross without Christ. They have discipline that is forced on people; they have hard labor, oppression. He said in our western society, WE HAVE CHRIST WITHOUT THE CROSS. Christ was weak; He could not save anyone because there was no discipline, no self denial. Fulton Sheen used to wonder, will these totalitarian countries find Christ, since they already have the cross, before the western society finds the cross because we already have Christ. “But we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God” (1Cor 1:23-24).

Why Does Socialism Always Fail? - This Professor is a Genius!”; (http://god-politics.blogspot.com/2009/12/why-does-socialism-always-fail.html).

The early Christians lived socialism giving of their goods FREELY to love others while the socialism of our modern dictators FORCE people to relinquish their goods and property! The order in heaven is an eternal benevolent dictatorship. The order in hell is an eternal malevolent dictatorship. In the end each one of us, according to the choices we make in this short life on earth, will end up either in heaven or in hell for all eternity, whether we believe or do not believe in the existence of heaven or hell! We do not create reality nor the laws governing reality whether we believe it or not! Lucifer freely chose to believe the absurdity that he, a creature, was greater than God, the Creator, and so he became Satan in eternal confusion and relativism in hell!

This is the state of our culture that we are quickly approaching. To paraphrase, DEMOCRACY IS HARD, AND MANY OF US ARE TIRED OF IT; WE WOULD RATHER SLEEP. The time is a call to wake up, to belly up to the bar, to participate, to, in fact, do our homework, and then to exercise the freedoms and liberties that are not just gifts but responsibilities, a duty to our society, to our civilization and our children who will follow after us. America, wake up; do not settle for the easy way. We humans tend toward mediocrity. But God calls all to great holiness; it is a sin to not correspond with each and every grace from God. There is no place in heaven for the mediocre but only for saints. The Bible is for everyone, not just for St. Francis and other recognized saints. My Dad used to say that most people today prefer to go to hell graciously!

Our egotistical world manipulators want to take us to a dictatorship as smooth as possible; if no one wakes up, all the better for them. Satan would be happy to take as many as possible to hell for eternity without a whimper!!! Because when someone wakes up to the grave deception, others wake up who know this person. THERE ARE SO FEW WILLING TO BE “POLITICALLY INCORRECT” today! The Truth Shall Set You Free (Jn 8:32)!

Economic socialism, in which the state owns and administers all the means of production and distribution of all goods, was the ECONOMIC COMPONENT of every evil political ideology we have seen in recent years: Nazism, communism, fascism, radical Islamic fundamentalism... All these political ideologies had the consistent thread, that consistent economic component of socialism. And the crux of socialism is the so-called community ownership. But it is not really community ownership; there is tremendous potential for abuse in this system. Ownership of private property, as the Church teaches, is an intrinsic human value that is woven into the very fabric of humanity. The EARLY CHRISTIANS practiced a type of socialism by FREELY offering their goods for the benefit of all the members in the community; the SOCIALISM of our modern day dictators FORCES people to relinquish control of their goods and production through various methods of manipulation and deception. “The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery” -- Winston Churchill. People are so easily deceived. GM is no longer “General Motors” but “GOVERNMENT MOTORS”!

This may not seem as a consolation, but EUROPE is quit a few steps ahead of the USA on the way to SELF DESTRUCTION; they are well down the road to socialism. Western European socialists have realized that the best way to build up mass support for their policies is essentially to bribe the population into accepting them. This is why you have INCREDIBLY LARGE WELFARE STATES in western Europe, which means you build up big constituencies of people who have a vested interest in making sure that large segments of the economy are controlled by the state. Then people do not want to see things change because they do not want to see their welfare checks suddenly start to decline. They do not want to see a situation whereby they have to work longer than 35 hours a week, that they actually have to get real jobs instead of being civil servants, etc. This is where they have been very successful in effectively creating a situation whereby 51% of the population are persuaded that it is good and right and proper and just to loot the other 49% of the population. They do not want to loose their easy security.

“YOU CANNOT LEGISLATE THE POOR INTO FREEDOM BY LEGISLATING THE WEALTHY OUT OF FREEDOM. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.” - Dr. Adrian Rogers. Though Dr. Rogers said it in 1984, his words are so relevant to what we are facing in America today.

THE ONES WHO LED THE 1968 MASSIVE REJECTION OF AUTHORITY ON UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE NOW IN POSITIONS OF POWER! “The Woodstock Generation!” Do you remember how Simon & Garfunkel mesmerized that generation telling us that we have no free will: “Like a rat in a maze the pattern before me lies” (“Patterns”), and thus we can blame everybody else for our problems: “When I think back at all the crap I learned in High School…” (“Kodachrome/Maybellene”). Contrast this hideous and immature attitude with gratitude toward God, parents and teachers! We have all received so much from our Creator who gave us all that we have freely out of love. So many ungrateful people are like tubes in which love enters at one end from God and others and then they choose to block the other end to use all they have been given for themselves rather than being an open tube which passes on the love received to others. But I have a certain sympathy for these people because almost all of them come from families poisoned by the contraceptive mentality of their parents; the so-called sexual revolution, free from all restraints or rules, like the train off the railroad tracks or the preschool children outside of the protecting walls of the playground! We have swallowed the lies of the father of lies, Satan, offered to us by his numerous followers!

I remember when I gave my valedictorian High School speech at the graduation ceremonies in 1970, my friend gave his speech PARROTING THIS SICK, IMMATURE, CRITICAL AND HATEFUL SPIRIT OF THE 1968 GANG and even used phrases and ideas straight out of the Simon & Garfunkel lyrics; this same friend was not very happy when I later turned down his invitations at UCLA to come to his depressing pot parties. My egotistical and disgusting schoolmates of my generation are now eating off of and destroying the foundation of our free society paid for by the countless sacrifices and blood of so many of our brave and generous soldiers and forefathers who came before us. Like they used to say: these people are “gross”, sick egotists! In the midst of these contradictions and hypocrisy and rejection of fundamental Christian values, they sing: “I dreamed the world had all agreed to put an end to war” (Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream). This corresponds well with Cardinal Biffi’s description of the Antichrist “as pacifist, ecologist and ecumenist.” As the world planners (“Club of Rome”, etc.) prepare to eliminate millions upon millions of unneeded human beings, the multitudes of gullible people swallow all their mass propaganda: “And people in the streets below were dancing round and round” (Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream)! Our evangelical brothers describe (below) “a peace contract in the Middle East for seven years” (Dan 9:27). But how can there be peace when Jesus, the "Prince of Peace" (Is 9:6) is rejected?
Jesus told Sister Faustina: “Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy” (Diary: 699)

With the help of the mass media and the tremendous influence of the militant secularists, nihilists, and relativists in key European positions of power, THE EUROPEAN PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DUPED INTO TOTALLY HANDING OVER THEIR FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY to the bureaucrats in Brussels who are not elected and cannot be remove by the people now that the 27 European nations have approved the Lisbon Treaty (the European Constitution).

DECLAN GANLEY, THE LEADER OF LIBERTAS, clearly shows that the LISBON TREATY, in particular article 48, give these institutions in Brussels the ability to change the deal, to change the treaty, the constitution, now that the new constitution is approved by all the 27 member nations. IT IS TRULY FRIGHTENING! Americans are a little bit more awake and have a little bit more moral fiber left even after the onslaughts of these militant secularists in the last 50 years in the U.S. The generosity to life (birth rate) and church attendance is significantly higher in the U.S. than in Europe, although going down fast. Obama has to operate in a more covert and deceptive way to bring forth the same goal of a socialistic dictatorship. In the end, sooner than we want to imagine, the world planners will create a major crisis and eliminate those who do not totally submit to their world plan. It is interesting that the free enterprise system of the U.S. has produced the greatest wealth in the history of the world and thus the socialists have worked hard to infiltrate the higher echelons of government, education, media and even religious institutions, so as to use the accumulated money and power of the U.S. precisely against the U.S. But by creating their socialistic dictatorship and system they destroy the innovation and economy of the highly successful U.S. system. Is this not what happens in hell?

The frightening thing is that there are those in the USA who want to hasten our following Europe as our ideal. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE DISASTER IN THE MAKING! I am not a pessimist. We know the last chapter of the book! We win! But we should be realists like St. Thomas, based on the purely objective reality created by God. The further we get a field of this base of objective truth the more easily Satan and his puppets can manipulate us and lead us astray in any direction they decide.

The German people were not evil. The Japanese people were not evil. The Russian people were not evil. But it was a VERY FEW IDEOLOGUES that seized control and then MANIPULATED A COMPLACENT AND UNWARY POPULACE. Let us not say that it cannot happen in America! According to Edmund Burke, evil triumphs when the good do nothing. If the Godly, who have not fallen into the fundamental trap of being distracted and complacent with illicit pleasures and sex, do not go out to fight the forces of evil, the forces of evil will come to us. Those of good will, all true Christians, are the stars of Heaven, so we must shine brightly! On the darkest night, the stars shine the brightest. “Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you!” -- Pericles (430 B.C.).

DO NOT FORGET THAT GERMANY WAS THE MOST EDUCATED, THE MOST CULTURED COUNTRY IN EUROPE. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. … all with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

The RTT Ruse: On February 25th, while Barack Obama chatted about ObamaCare with members of Congress, the Federal Department of Education – lead by its cabinet level chief Arne Duncan who’s also from Chicago – prepped for release to the public his and his boss’s second assault on our freedom; this time a scheme to further intrude on your child’s education. As an announcement from two think tanks put it: “generationally important Tenth Amendment issues [were] opened on two fronts—the prospect of centralizing health care and education policy.” And that’s pretty much what’s going on, but using expressions like “two fronts” assumes a great deal from the average reader or listener these days. That’s because such expressions harken back to historical events the facts on which the general populace is thin. Doubt me? Ask anyone under 40 why Hitler shouldn’t have invaded The Soviet Union. (http://catholicexchange.com/2010/03/04/127739/).

JUST AS UNDER COMMUNIST RUSSIA AND CHINA, parental rights are being quickly taken away by our U.S. government. (http://parentalrightstn.blogspot.com/).

One of the components of this takeover is economic catastrophe which is what socialism does according to the writings of the Popes. And then when that happens, when there is so much misery and so much discontent, then people like Hitler or Stalin can rise to power because it creates a situation where people are so desperate that they are LOOKING FOR SALVATION FROM A MESSIAH, that is not Jesus, that’s for sure. Without grace, this eventually happens every time. In Russia there was a horrible abject poverty before WWI. Then with millions being killed with incompetent generals, they revolted and they ended up with a worse oppression than the Czar. This is where the IMPORTANCE OF BALANCE comes in which we find in the documents of the Church. When a bigger and bigger segment of the population is getting more and more poor, when the worker is oppressed, the everyday man in his job, while a smaller and smaller number of people are garnering a bigger and bigger share of the wealth, what happens?

With every new bill, WITH DIFFERENT DISGUISES AND PACKAGING, Obama is bringing all the money and power and decision making to the federal level, so that if you have a problem, you will not be able to solve it locally, but you must have recourse to bureaucrats (czars!) in Washington…

It is true that THE GREED OF HUMAN nature enlightens us about the fact that the bosses, as well as the unions, seek to acquire as much wealth with as little work as possible which tends toward bankruptcy; but at least with a capitalistic system, with a minimally functional democratic government, there are some checks and balances. But maneuvered bankruptcy gives the GREEDY GOVERNMENT bureaucrats the excuse and legal right to take more, and even total control of the businesses, especially with the help of the rich international bankers who helped to create the conditions for bankruptcy and forfeiture of the businesses.

But history has always shown that BIG GOVERNMENT IS MUCH MORE PRONE TO HUMAN GREED AND THE THIRST FOR POWER, especially since there is no one or no governing body above them to MONITOR AND CONTROL THEIR GREED, except the “New World Order”, which will be worse than the world has ever seen or will see in the future! The everyday thieves are put in jail; the thieves in government make the laws and thus do not go to jail! Thus with the beautiful rhetoric in the name of “progress”, “equality for all”, “the common good” and “social justice”, these insatiable government officials promote socialism with beautiful propaganda as they seek to dismantle or nullify the state or national constitution of checks and balances so as to facilitate their way to a socialistic dictatorship. These power seeking government officials offer themselves as the solution for the forfeiture of the businesses. But who or what will be the solution and control for the forfeiture and DESTRUCTION OF TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENTS who have totally failed the people who they claim to represent? You guessed it! The New World Order!

“One World Government? Globe may not be big enough - The New World Order came into being at 4:25 Tuesday afternoon”; (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/11/10/AR2009111015034.html).

All is held in a very delicate balance by the Creator of all things. Even a tiny atom is held in existence by its Creator. So too there is a DELICATE BALANCE IN SOCIETY. The more people follow the laws and rules of the Creator of society, the better things go for society. The more people follow the human instincts of greed and power or sloth, the worse things go for the social order. This is also the reason why groups and societies are always in need of renewal as history clearly shows. Sometimes these renewals came about by longsuffering saintly people who truly loved God and their fellow brothers and sisters, especially the weakest and most defenseless. But unfortunately these needed renewals most often come about after the great destruction of wars and much bloodshed and loss of life.

In an interview with the Sec. of Agriculture, Esra Taft Benson during the Eisenhower administration, KHRUSHCHEV said, “You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright; but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you; we will so weaken your economy UNTIL YOU FALL LIKE OVERRIPE FRUIT INTO OUR HANDS.”

Dr. Oley Turiy, Director of the Institute of Church History (L’viv), explains that especially under Khrushchev, and this is a paradox, since the west associates Khrushchev with liberal policies and an introduction of a measure of freedom, that the most severe church closing policies were introduced. This policy even included the churches that formerly belonged to the Russian orthodox Church. In 1960 Khrushchev hosted the 21st congress of the Communist party. At this event he said that within 20 years he would appear on television to reveal, as a curiosity, the last surviving Christian in the USSR. Khrushchev assured his audience that after the death of this individual, Christianity would cease to exist altogether in what he dubbed THE FATHERLAND OF THE HOLY PROLETARIAT!

“It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, THE AMERICAN DECENT INTO MARXISM IS HAPPENING WITH BREATH TAKING SPEED, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people. True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.” (http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/107459-0/).

Socialism in Pajamas by Gustavo Solimeo. “A specter is haunting Europe -- the specter of communism."

“FINANCIAL REGULATION BILL IS SOCIALISM” – “President Obama has taken the United States one more giant step toward socialism by ramming through the Senate his financial regulation bill. The bill authorizes the secretary of the treasury -- a political appointee -- to seize any financial company (bank or non-bank) simply because, in his opinion, it is too big to fail and in danger of insolvency. This power can be used for political retribution, pressure for campaign funding or any other abuse that bureaucratic whim or partisan politics can conceive. It is a power Fidel Castro or Hugo Chavez would love to have!” (May 22, 2010; http://townhall.com/columnists/DickMorrisandEileenMcGann/2010/05/22/financial_regulation_bill_is_socialism).

We need more world leaders like Pope John Paul II. “Nine Days That Changed The World” (http://ninedaysthatchangedtheworld.com/)!

24. SubsidiarityAmong other things, including the evils of abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia and the destruction of the family (same sex marriages, etc.), I wrote the following paragraph to my representatives in the senate and in the congress: “Please promote the principle of subsidiarity so that our country does not become a socialistic dictatorship but remains “for the people and by the people”. SUBSIDIARITY is an organizing principle that matters ought to be handled by the smallest, lowest or least centralized competent authority. The Oxford English Dictionary defines subsidiarity as the idea that a central authority should have a subsidiary function, performing only those tasks which cannot be performed effectively at a more immediate or local level. Let us give the power back to the people before it is too late!”

"WE THE PEOPLE", is one of the most-quoted sections of the Constitution and of the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America. President Abraham Lincoln, at his famous “Gettysburg Address” in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on November 19, 1863, said: … “that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Let us not pervert and destroy our country by changing Lincoln’s words to: “that government of the government, by the government, for the government”! Our precious and wisely written United States Constitution begins with the words: “We the People”! We must not let these ruthless conceited bureaucrats interpret this God-inspired document as: “WE THE GOVERNMENT”! This is precisely the reason for the American Revolution!

The word subsidiarity is derived from the Latin word subsidiarius and has its origins in Catholic social teaching (RERUM NOVARUM, 1891, Pope Leo XIII; QUADRAGESIMO ANNO, 1931, Pope Pius XI).

THOMAS JEFFERSON, our 3rd. President of the USA, declared "That government is best which governs least." He also said: “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have...” Is this not right in line with the principle of subsidiarity? It doesn't take a brain surgeon to conclude that Mr. Jefferson must be whirling in his grave at the current effort by President Barack Obama to increase our government to a size and scope unprecedented in history, using taxpayer money in amounts that exceed our comprehension. With each new bill touted as "crucial" for the economy, the government is getting MORE CONTROL over banks, health care, jobs, housing and more. It is an all-out assault on capitalism and the form of government conceived and enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.

Obama is always thinking about the best for the American people; since he assumes we do not know what we are doing, he must use every technique possible to lead us toward a socialistic dictatorship for our own good! After all, the socialists do not understand that normal people have a free will given to them by their Creator (which does not exist according to these wise and intelligent leaders (Mt 11:25; Lk 10:21)) and thus these elitists must provide for us poor ignoramuses!

“Once again, JOSEPH FARAH, now this is world net daily, had this to say: As the national government becomes more centralized and bureaucratic, it will also become less democratic, and more despotic, than ever.” (http://www.livedash.com/transcript/jack_van_impe_presents/13/KOFY/Monday_February_22_2010/157588/).

IS NOT A DECLARED DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT SUPPOSED TO SERVE THE PEOPLE, or is it meant to manipulate the people according to proud bureaucrats who believe they are more intelligent and enlightened than the rest of us? Did not our free enterprise system bring the USA to highest standard of living that the world has ever known?

With Obama, the democrats are quickly undermining the power of the people. “Democrats defeat GOP alternative on consumer agency”. “Senate Democratic leaders cleared two major obstacles Thursday to winning passage of a Wall Street reform bill, beating back a Republican effort to curb the reach of a new consumer agency and striking a compromise on a watered-down bill to shine a light on Federal Reserve activities. …” (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0510/36905.html).

THE UN OPERATES EXACTLY OPPOSITE TO THE PRINCIPLE OF SUBSIDIARITY; these bureaucrats have no business telling people how many babies to have and forcing abortions and contraceptives, especially on countries where these policies are totally contrary to their local culture, as in Africa and South America!

In Pope Benedict’s recent encyclical, ”Charity in Truth”, he recognizes the need at times to be able to have a higher authority to resolve problems that the lower authorities do not succeed in resolving. Because of this admission, some want to accuse the Pope of being in favor of the “New World Order”. But he very clearly holds fast to the constant principle of the Catholic Church, SUBSIDIARITY, which means that the sovereignty of each nation must be protected and safeguarded by any possible higher authority. Pope Benedict makes numerous references to the principle of subsidiarity in his encyclical. Regarding a higher authority he wrote: “Such an authority would need to be regulated by law, to observe consistently the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity, to seek to establish the common good, and to make a commitment to securing authentic integral human development inspired by the values of charity in truth” (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/encyclicals/documents/hf_ben-xvi_enc_20090629_caritas-in-veritate_en.html).

Every day seems to be a new ADVENTURE IN DISASTER. One bailout after another bailout, huge budgets and thieves in government who call 700 billion dollars as “chump change”, considered inconsequential because it’s our money! “A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money” -- G. Gordon Liddy. “Talk is cheap... except when Congress does it” – Anonymous. “I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle ...” -- Winston Churchill.

“You would think that the Far Left’s blatant attempts to obliterate the U.S. Constitution would be newsworthy, wouldn’t you? Instead, the liberal media applaud efforts by the Obama administration to trample on the First Amendment and abuse executive power! Last week, President Obama’s Federal Trade Commission (FTC) revealed their plans to bail out failing liberal news organizations with $35 billion ... of our tax dollars! They call this “reinventing journalism.” (You may have noticed a pattern here – when liberals say they want to reinvent something, they always mean they want to take it over!). This is nothing less than an attempt to seize control of the press – a clear violation of the First Amendment! It just doesn’t get any more anti-American than this.

25. We Have Cast Aside Our Real Power!Our Lady of Fatima told us that wars are caused by the sins of everyone (not just the heads of state). THE MORE WE SIN AND THE LESS WE PRAY AND THE LESS WE DO GOD’S HOLY WILL, the more the followers of Satan have power. The more we pray and do God’s will and avoid sin, the less power these prideful, powerful people of the world have. We have the power in our hands, especially those who have received more truth and grace from God, such as Catholics. If those who have received more “TALENTS” (Mt 25:14-30) from God use them wisely, the world would be in great shape. But today the great majority of those who have received more graces and truth from God (which would also unite them more closely to the sufferings of Christ crucified) have discarded these “talents”, these gifts from God especially by rejecting the cross of Jesus in their lives. This is why history shows that the first priority of the dictators of the world was to subvert and then destroy the Catholic Church in each country, in particular, to eliminate the greatest source of grace (strength and help) from God, the Most Holy Eucharist. When the oppressive regimes came to power in the last 100 years in Spain, Russia and Mexico, the first thing they did was to kill as many priests and bishops as they could to take away the greatest source of power (THE EUCHARIST) to resist the evil designs of these Godless tyrants. They killed over 4000 priests in Spain alone, less than 90 years ago. This is why these world connivers promote sin, such as using artificial contraception, abortion, euthanasia, sex outside marriage as normal and even good, pornography, compulsory sex education and “gay sensitivity training” in the elementary and secondary schools (diabolical programs that are destroying souls and corrupting our entire society), the DESTRUCTION OF THE FAMILY, every kind of egoism and hedonism, etc. Behold their P-Squad: Permissiveness, Promiscuity, Pornography, Prostitution, Potions, Progressivism! They always use beautiful, nice, deceptive words (Dan 8:25; see also Dan 11:21,24) so as not to cause a reaction and awake our consciences to the truth and the real consequences of their policies, in order to render the people weak, confused and unable to resist the onslaughts of the intended enslavement. “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits” (Mt 7:15-16).
The greatest obstacle for these world planners to bring about socialistic dictatorships around the world, all under their control, is the Catholic Church. See: Obama's "Catholic Plan", Divide and conquer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVN2MMuiedI&feature=sdig&et=1242466852.

Just as the Church converted the things of the past to Christianity instead of destroying them, so too the New World Order does the same to use for their purposes. They use the Muslims, terrorists, etc. In the past, dissenters of the truth left the Church; now they remain in the Church to try to convert the Church to non-truth which used to be called heresy!

IS OBAMA USING THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS as a preparation for something nice for our country? Is this not the same socialistic strategy to bring all down to poverty, taking away the money and property of those who are willing to work and giving it to those who do not want to work? In the end, those who up to now who have been willing to work and save, will give up working when they see it is all taken away!

ARE WE ALREADY UNDER A DICTATORSHIP AND WE DO NOT FULLY KNOW IT YET? It is no longer “for the people and by the people” but for the socialistic elitists and by the socialistic elitists! Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! But the socialistic elitists are far more prepared for our eventual reaction than we can imagine. Thus THE BEST WEAPONS are precisely what our heavenly Mother told us almost 100 years ago at Fatima: PRAYER AND SACRIFICES. These devious world destroyers are so manipulated and guided by their real master, Satan, that they have manoeuvred for years to lead us away from prayer and toward the worst of sins so as to render us their slaves here on earth and later for all eternity for those who do not repent. It is by now impossible to save the sinking ship, our beloved country, that we allowed these fools to slowly fill full of holes, letting out, first of all, the graces and helps from God, and then, as a consequence, the Christian social fabric, the economy, etc. WE ARE TO BLAME for having given the power and control to these egotistical puppets of Satan who have in turn accelerated the sinking of the ship with the money and power that we have given to them so as to pay for abortions in the whole world and use the mass media to undermine or destroy the last remaining religious voices in the public square! This is the real cause of the economic and social crisis which we did not want to recognize or resist especial since 1960.

If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?'
There was no disagreement with my statement and, without hesitation, he replied, 'Non-believers!'
I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not a follower of Allah, so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?'
The expression on his face changed from one of authority to that of 'a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the biscuit tin.'
He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'
I then stated, 'Well, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope Benedict commanding all Catholics to kill Muslims, or the Archbishop of Canterbury ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'

“OBAMA RUMOR MAILED TO NEWSROOM MAKES ME SAD”
From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" The THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag. General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
The General also stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171... During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It". Senator Obama replied: "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."
ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???
Obama said: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of waring people, conduct ourselves as the nations of Islam where peace prevails - - - perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments."

WILLIAM WRIGHT WROTE THAT THERE IS NO POLITICAL REVOLUTION WITHOUT A SEXUAL REVOLUTION!

“But some one will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I by my works will show you my faith. You believe that God is one; you do well. EVEN THE DEMONS BELIEVE – AND SHUDDER” (Jms 2:18-19). It is amazing that these powerful people, so close to their hidden leader, Satan, and who claim there is no God; know better than the great majority of Catholics the source of our great strength. “For the sons of this world are wiser in their own generation than the sons of light” (Lk 16:8). The great majority of Catholics do not even have one hour a week to thank their Lord in the Eucharist (after a good, sincere, well-formed conscience confession), Who gave them everything they have! These ruthless “angels of light” who declare that there is no God, realize that our greatest source of strength to defend ourselves from their onslaughts is the Eucharist! They even steal Consecrated Hosts to desecrate the Body of Christ in their Black Masses! And they call themselves atheists! If we want to persevere to the end in our long life’s journey in the desert, like Jesus in the desert 40 days, amidst many dangers and trials, to arrive to our home in heaven (“the mount of God”) we need heavenly food! “And the angel of the Lord came again a second time, and touched him [Elijah], and said, “Arise and eat, else the journey will be too great for you. … And he arose, and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of God” (1Kings 19:7-8). How can a Christian not believe in the Eucharist or believe that the Eucharist is only a symbol after reading the sixth chapter of the Gospel of John?!?

Jesus: “YES, THE COMMUNION IS DIRECT CONTACT WITH GOD: JESUS EUCHARIST LOVE! Are you ready to receive Me with the white gown, purified and cleaned from all the sin that has darkened the view of the whole Truth, and [that] it makes you become opaque and grey. Re-clean yourselves from the ‘grime’ and make to shine your soul! May there be an effort to believe that in that Host there is God and he loves you. But I wait for you clean and purified: do not partake of the Eucharist remaining in sin, it is something grave, very grave! It would be to put the ‘wax’ in order to seal a writing, and put on it the mark of belonging to Satan!”. (December 12, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

“THE SONS OF THIS WORLD” know that the more we sin, and the more the family is destroyed by the contraceptive mentality and culture, and thus leading to so many horrendous sins, the more power they have and the weaker we become. Contraception is the gateway to abortion. “THE SONS OF LIGHT” do not realize why their society and country is crumbling and thus why their economy is now about to crash after following the allurements of these world masters for so many years!

Jobs reports ‘riddled with inaccuracies’ – USA Today” (http://www.thebarackoberry.com/news/jobs-reports-riddled-with-inaccuracies-usa-today/).

Read: “Catholic Martyrs of the Twentieth Century : A COMPREHENSIVE WORLD HISTORY” by Robert Royal. See also http://www.thomasewoods.com/ (“How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization”). There have been more Christian martyrs in the twentieth century than in all the rest of Christianity combined! What is happening to “America, the land of the free”? See: “Cardinal George - Keep CONSCIENCE PROTECTIONS for Health Care Workers” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NoCRwMqVzQ&feature=player_embedded. Cardinal George has no jurisdiction in all of the American Catholic Universities because in 1966 the USA Supreme Court took away all power from the Church and from the Religious Congregations who founded these universities by giving the power to the board of directors of the university which cannot have a majority of members from the founding religious congregation!

We truly have cast aside our real power! It takes humility to seek and to submit to the truth that we discover outside ourselves, in creation, in reality created by our Creator, and by His divine revelation. But authentic humility is a great source of peace. Satan and his followers absolutely hate humility! The only thing Satan cannot deal with is humility. It is totally against his nature. Because HUMILITY IS TRUTH, the truth that God is the Creator and we are creatures made from nothing, by divine will. The truth is not something; the truth is a Person, Jesus Christ. Lucifer, the most beautiful and intelligent angel ever created wanted to be like God, and even believed he was God. The meaning of “Michael”, in the great battle with “the dragon and his angels” in heaven, is “Who is like God?” (Rev 12:7; Dan 12:1)! There are so many people today, in their pride, who have fallen for the same temptation of Lucifer (Gen 3:4-5), who became Satan. We must pray often to St. Michael the Archangel to lead the battle once again against Satan and his numerous angelic followers, the devils, who roam the earth. We must pray for those poor duped human beings on earth who need to hear the voice of St. Michael, WHO IS LIKE GOD?. We need his help today!

“NOW WAR AROSE IN HEAVEN, MICHAEL AND HIS ANGELS FIGHTING AGAINST THE DRAGON; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world – he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him” (Rev 12:7-9). The prophet Daniel, regarding our times, tells us: “At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of you people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time; but at that time you people shall be delivered, every one whose name shall be found written in the book” (Dan 12:1).

WITHOUT HUMILITY THERE IS NO VIRTUE! All good things come from God; we cannot even have a good thought without the help and grace from God. It is important to ask for this help and grace often. God is totally respectful of our fundamental gift of our free will. If we do not ask, we will not receive. This is why Jesus exhorts us to “Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Mt 6:7-8; 21:22; Lk 11:10; Jn 16:24). God who made you without your consent, will not save you without your consent. If, in true humility and gratitude for all that we have received from our Creator, we do not acknowledge ours sins of lack of love and so much egoism, and do not ask for mercy from God, He will not give us mercy and our sins remain! We as Catholics have the incredible gift of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, but fewer and fewer take advantage of this opportunity to be washed in the blood of Jesus by way of Christ’s instrument, the Priest. “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Mt 11:29; see also: Mt 23:12; Lk 14:11; 18:14).

Neil Armstrong upon taking a step on the moon in 1969 said: “One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.” People saw the earth as fragile and in need of friends and so there sprang up groups like “Friends of the Earth”. But while growing in technology, people formed peace movements, but left God and the 10 Commandments.

On a monument in Europe, commemorating many victims of the holocaust of World War II, one reads: “THOSE WHO IGNORE HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT!”

As we sin more and pray less, we give more power to the forces of evil who then use this superabundance of power and money to promote even more sin and destruction of religion, thus accelerated their goal of total domination. VERY SOON WE WILL SEE A MORAL AND CIVIL AVALANCHE INTO THE DEPTHS OF CHAOS, AS HENRY KISSINGER PREDICTED! (www.independent.co.uk/.../henry-kissinger-the-world-must-forge-a-new-order-or-retreat-to-chaos-1451416.html). Guess who will be waiting for us with the jail keys, or rather a microchip, thus making the entire world one giant prison!

We all must say in our hearts when we see a poor sinner: “Except for the grace of GOD, there go I”. We all have received a certain amount of truth, some more, some less. We Catholics have receive the fullness of the truth and the fullness of the means of sanctification especially in the Holy Sacraments. But most Catholics today have let themselves be led astray by many “angels of light” and have FORFEITED THEIR GREAT GIFTS, including their belief in the incredible treasure and power of the Eucharist, the intercession of the Mother of God and the guidance of the Rock (Mt 16:18), the living Pope, in a very confusing and perilous world. So many are totally adrift in very perilous waters! All the dictators and terrorists all rolled together are nothing compared to the devastation of immorality! A morally weak nation is easy to enslave. To know, love and serve GOD is the meaning of life. The rest is just dust! If you kick the Rock, you will break your foot on the Rock. When Christ asked, "Who do you say that I am", one person had the answer, Peter, the “Rock”; all the rest had an opinion.

26. The Tea PartiesThe people who promote the so-called “Tea Party” certainly help to undermine Obama’s credibility, deflate his messianic pretensions, sow widespread public discontent with his socialist economic program, and perhaps even limit, on an ad hoc basis, the amount of damage he can cause. Like the Boston Tea Party, today there is more and more taxation without representation. See “Conservative Woodstock Rocks the Capital - Patriotic anti-big-government taxpayers blast through the million protester mark”; September 12, 2009, Washington, D.C. (http://www.lookingattheleft.com/2009/09/conservative-woodstock-rocks-the-capital/).

“Tea Party effect becomes apparent in local elections” (http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/politics/state/stories/DN-candidates_01met.ART0.State.Edition1.4b84896.html).
“Obama's 'tea party' complex” (http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2010/0417/Obama-s-tea-party-complex).

WHY DO SO MANY NOT SEE at least the visible manifestations of how Obama and the democrats are destroying America? There is no more regard for trying to live the Ten Commandments as well as seeking God’s help through daily prayer; thus, simply put, they are blind (2Thess 2:11-12)!
The Promise: Year One of the Obama Presidency - As someone who admires Barack Obama and worked for a year on his presidential campaign, I find it hard to understand the depth of the anger he has inspired on the political right. His policies are left of center but hardly extreme, and by themselves don’t explain why a small but significant portion of the country sees in his ascent to power the end of life as we know it in America.” (http://www.csmonitor.com/Books/Book-Reviews/2010/0525/The-Promise-Year-One-of-the-Obama-Presidency).

“Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for THE TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT. You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil” (Mt 12:33-35; 7:17-19; Lk 6:43-45).

The Tea Partiers succeed in not looking just at the tree with its deceptive foliage of beautiful words and lies facilitated by a highly controlled mass media, educational systems and even religious institutions; but at least they recognize the real fruits, the “visible manifestations” of the ground work being laid for the “end of life as we know it in America”. But just about all of the grievances of those in the tea parties relate to the pocketbook. They do not address hardly at all the greatest causes and FUNDAMENTAL ROOTS of the destruction of America. For example, among so many great evils indicated in this article, they do not address the evil of pornography, which, thanks to the “free market,” flows throughout our society like toxic waste in open sewers, corrupting generation after generation of Americans, ruining marriages and feeding the sick minds of serial killers, rapists and other deviants. Married men who regularly look at pornography, are really betraying their wives and having sex not with their wives, while in bed with their wives, but with the non-existent porn star imbedded in their memories. Has pornography helped men to give themselves in self-sacrifice for their wives or to use their wives for their own pleasure. With pornography the man becomes the predator instead of the protector. Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus with a kiss!

BEFORE 1950, Christian men generally did not regularly look at pornographic images; the divorce rate was about 8% among Christian marriages; now the divorce rate among Christians is about the same as the rest of the world! One of the main priorities of the Freemasons and other groups seeking to destroy religion and the society so as to render us their slaves was to promote pornography as much as possible! Pope John Paul II said that the problem with pornography is not that it shows too much, but that it does not show enough; looking at pornography does not help the male to see the beauty inside of the woman!

“Rush Limbaugh Weds for 4th Time, and Elton John Sings” (http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20391620,00.html).

“God the Father: “WE ARE AT THE EXTREMES OF THE ESTABLISHED TIME to put and end to this world dirtied by filth, caused by the forces of evil that are invading so many men dedicated to alcohol, to drugs, and to other forms of demonic exploitations.” (March 9, 2007; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html).

“STEVE JOBS SAYS 'NO PORN' for iPhone and iPad Apps”. Comment: Kudos to Steve Jobs! It's about time someone in his position took a stand against the porn industry. For all the people who don't like his decision, here's a clue: You don't HAVE to have an iPhone. And, honestly, is your pornography addiction so overwhelming that you have to carry that crap around with you? If so, GO GET THERAPY.” (May 17, 2010; http://www.catholic.org/national/national_story.php?id=36589).

The following websites are very good in describing the horrible fruits and foundation being laid by the promotion of the culture of death, but again, they do not succeed in putting their finger on the root causes of these atrocious fruits, which the leaders of the New World Order have promoted for many years to destroy the morals and families in the U.S. (http://apathetic-usa.com/; American Suicide: http://www.coalitionofindependentcitizens.org/articles/opinion/978-american-suicide). The culture of death is THE LOSE OF THE SENSE OF GOD and the connection with God; we end up making our own rules which is relativism. The culture of death is the legitimization of abortion, embryonic stem cell research, etc… EUTHANASIA IS MISPLACED COMPASSION! Dostoevsky wrote that when we disconnect human life and morality from the Creator, the Author of Life, all becomes permissible.

The members of the Tea Party are irate with Obama, but he is only a puppet of the evil forces who receive their power by promoting sin and diminishing faith, hope and love, especially with those who have the greater spiritual weapons. We are to blame! FATIMA: WAR IS DUE TO SIN, NOT JUST THE HEADS OF STATE. The heads of state, as Obama, are elected by people who have pushed aside God, and now we want to fix the situation with only guns, which are pop guns compared to the power derived from prayer, the Sacraments and living the 10 commandments explained correctly by the official documents of the Catholic Church. The world manipulators, close to Satan, know this better than we do!

The vast majority of the conservatives in America do not recognize their real power and their real weapons as well as their principle points of vulnerability. It is amazing that the ones taking us very quickly to a socialistic dictatorship understand and recognize better than the God-loving people the most powerful weapons that they have been able to take away from us as well as our vulnerable points. “For THE SONS OF THIS WORLD ARE WISER in their own generation than the sons of light” (Lk 16:8). Take a look at the history in the last 200 years. What were the main targets they took out before the dictators were able to come to power? If you can DESTROY THE FAMILY, there will be NO VIABLE RESISTANCE LEFT to these ruthless, Godless and shrewd people to render us totally their slaves. “But because of false brethren secretly brought in, who slipped in to spy out our freedom which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage” (Gal 2:4). Just about all the participants at the tea parties do not realize that the horse is already out of the barn!

The families are the FUNDAMENTAL CELLS OF SOCIETY and of our country. A tree that is rotting from within will eventually loose it’s leaves and fall when a strong wind comes. If you heal the interior sickness of the tree, it will not fall. The present rapid meltdown of our economy, the fall of the dollar, like the tree from which THE LEAVES ARE FALLING, is only the outward symptoms of the moral sickness that our enemies have been promoting and fostering in everyway possible within our society and within our country for many years. If we would have resisted these strong allurements offered to us and fed to us by the enemy to give up and to not live our inherited moral values of our forefathers, it would be impossible today for these world planners to destroy our economy as they are doing today. There is no longer the moral fiber and strength in the majority of Americans or citizens of the world, and thus collectively, to resist the Godless designers of the “New World Order”. Due to the diligent preparations of these worldly powerful men in the last several decades, along with the negligence and default of the American people in following the offered carrots, it probably will not be too difficult for Obama to collaborate in bringing down the U.S. so as to render the world ready for a socialistic dictatorship. If the American people begin to wake up too much to the real intentions and goals of Obama and begin to look at his fruits and concrete actions rather than his well prepared words, rhetoric, promises and smiles, the world planners may have to resort to “some large-scale crisis that will make people accept the new world order” (spoken by David Rockefeller in the late 1990s: http://www.thepeoplesvoice.org/TPV3/Voices.php/2009/08/30/crisis-as-a-way-to-build-a-global-totali).
Before this happens, the American citizens will have to be disarmed. “Ban handguns? Supreme Court taking a new look”; (http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5iz6Qns7uUfAAvvLl1R6dY5oGQcOgD9B1S8F80).
“Why Obama's Ratings Are Sinking - Americans will put up with a lot. But not with someone who imperils their future”; (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204683204574354383543314054.html).

Unfortunately the vast majority of Americans consider only the lose of the pocketbook as something that “imperils their future”; IT IS ALREADY TOO LATE! Having pushed the Creator aside and out of the public square and out of their lives, they do not see the connection anymore between the spiritual and the material, both of which are created by the same Creator.

So many fathers of our families today have a beer in one hand and Playboy in the other. So they are not interested in politics, or God, or as Chesterton wrote “eternal vigilance”; they are happy and consumed in their pleasures today. The abandoned mothers, who have tried to be both the mother and the father of her children, have not been able to adequately substitute for the unique God-given essential role of the father of her children. Pride and lack of the willingness to forgive destroys so many marriages. “To forgive takes love; to forget takes humility” – Mother Teresa.

“DON’T WORRY; BE HAPPY; NO ONE GOES TO HELL ANYMORE; TOMORROW WILL TAKE CARE OF ITSELF!” We are in the greatest battle in the history of the world and the great majority are happy on the sidelines without getting involved; most do not even want to know about what is going on. There are fewer and fewer today who are willing to train and sweat so as to play on the field. And most of those who try to play on the field do not realize or use their greatest weapons in this great “cosmic struggle”.

From a website in Italian one finds the following in regards to MASONRY AND SEXUAL CORRUPTION (http://cattoliciliberi.forumcommunity.net/?t=25524939):
In order to destroy the Church… it is better by way of corruption than by persecution. … A few statements taken from the program of the Masons:
1) “CORRUPT THE YOUTH; lead them away from religion; fix their attention on sex; let them become superficial; destroy their idealism; provoke within every way the collapse of the moral virtues, honesty, purity” (Manual for the communists of Florida).
2) “Our job is to PROMOTE A WAVE OF PORNOGRAPHY and to present it with sympathy as the supreme goal of artistic freedom” (Word of order of the Italian Communist Party).
3) “If we want to destroy a nation, WE MUST FIRST DESTROY IT’S MORALS; then it will fall in our laps as a ripe fruit. Awaken the interest of the youth for sex and it will be yours” (Lenin).
4) “Abrogate all the laws against obscenity. Destroy the sense of morals by diffusing pornography in the books, in the magazines, in the cinema, by way of radio and television. PRESENT THE SEXUAL DEGENERATIONS AS NORMAL, natural, favorable to the psychological and hygienic equilibrium. Destroy the family, favoring free unions and divorce” (Directives given to the communists of the United States).
5) “When man will become a being that crawls, that grunts and jumps on the female, and you will continue only to caress his sex and to UNLEASH THE BEAST that is in him, then the pigsty will become a slaughterhouse. The meat that you offer in your illustrated magazines is all the better to be sold, mocked, tortured, killed and burned” (Jean Cau, French writer).
6) “The first conquest to do is THE CONQUEST OF THE WOMAN; she must be liberated from the chains of the Church and from the law. To knock down Catholicism, it is necessary to begin with the suppression of the dignity of the woman; we must corrupt her together with the Church. Let us spread the practice of nudity: first the arms, then the legs, then all the rest. In the end people will go around naked or almost, without even batting an eye. And, having taken away modesty, the sense of the sacred will be snuffed out, morals will be weakened and the Faith will die from suffocation” (Masonic Plan).
7) “We have associated youth, music, sex, drugs and revolution with betrayal: it is very difficult to go further” (Jerry Rubin, American revolutionary).

“In 1917, with other religious, Massimiliano Maria Kolbe founded the “Milizia dell'Immacolata” with the precise goal of spreading in the world devotion to Mary and to combat the enemies of God, above all the Freemasons, using the technological means. … Going over his writings, gathered together by Father Di Monda, one is amazed by the deep knowledge that Kolbe had about the Masonic sect and about its filthy goals. Its vision of a world dominated by a hedonistic mentality – today before our very eyes – can be defined as “prophetic” if one considers that his considerations on the work of corruption taken up by the Freemasonry were in the 20’s. It is also impressive his historic analysis of Protestantism, socialism and communism, which he considered allied in thought and the vanguard troops of the warped army of the infernal serpent. …” (Translated from an Italian article, which also gives a good summary and history of Masonry, which can be further translated with Google: http://www.centrosangiorgio.com/occultismo/massoneria/articoli/pagine_articoli/kolbe_contro_massoneria.htm).

Of course, when things get real bad, with the help of the mass media and well planned strategies, as well as the blindness caused by personal sin, THE MASTER PLANNERS OF THE DISASTER WILL NOT BE RECOGNIZED AS THE REAL CULPRITS! See: “Morris: Obama a 'Disaster' at the G20 Summit”; “This was so unbelievable. Obama was the one pressing for less regulation and more spending. And he had to convince the Europeans. … This truly creates a global economic system. From now on, don't look to Washington for the rule making, look to Brussels.” (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,512347,00.html).

With the help of the computer, satellites, cell phone infrastructures, microchips, biotechnology, etc., THE COMING WORLD DICTATORSHIP WILL MAKE ALL OTHER PAST DICTATORSHIPS SEEM LIKE A PICNIC! We are truly “like overripe fruit” as Khrushchev predicted over 50 years ago. “Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen” (Rom 1:24-25).

Even the so-called CATHOLIC SPOKESMEN for the Tea Parties, who should know better, ARE SILENT ABOUT THE REAL CAUSES of the meltdown and the destruction of our country and of our society as a whole. Upon his farewell address to the nation, GEORGE WASHINGTON tried to impress upon his fellow countrymen that it was “Religion and Morality” that served as the foundation for our young nation. Without the foundation of Religion and Morality that George Washington and the other founding fathers provided for us, there is simply no real hope for the future of this country.

One blogger responded to me by saying: “But the Tea Parties are addressing a specific agenda - the out of control spending and power of the Federal Government. We cannot co-opt this movement with these other issues. … That is what we need to do - NOT SADDLE THE TEA PARTIES WITH EVERY SOCIAL ILL IN THE WORLD.”
I responded to him: “You say to “not saddle the Tea Parties with every social ill in the world”!!! If most conservatives agree with you, then we will be condemned to not dust off and use our heavy artillery, and to continue to put Band-Aids on the dying body until it is dead.”

Gianna Jessen, the SURVIVOR OF A SALINE ABORTION had the courage to bear witness to Christ in the very halls of government, rebuking legislators in His name. As she declared fearlessly to the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution on July 20, 2000: "Today we are nothing but cowards in America. We can’t even say the truth because we are so afraid of what our colleagues will think." (See her testimony http://www.shininglamp.com/page2.html)!

27. The Consequences of Individual Failure!The Church was given to the world by God to hold it in being. To the degree that we Catholics are faithful to our mission in the Church we lift the world up. To the degree that we are lax or unfaithful, the world begins to sink into hell under the weight of its own iniquity, which is what we are seeing right now. COMPLACENCY IS THE KISS OF DEATH. Failure in personal holiness has catastrophic consequences not just for the individual soul, but for their family, their community, their country, and the whole world. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing. It's happening right now!

WE ARE ALL RELATED. St. Peter Damian, a great doctor of the Church said: “Wherever one of us is, there the entire mystical Body of Christ is made present through the inviolable mystery of unity.” You can say this about humanity in a certain sense, when one person lives outside of grace, basically the living dead. Our country and our world is now filled with morally dead people. The consequences of this are catastrophic! In this country and in the western world we esteem money and wealth. It is kind of POETIC JUSTICE that we are being brought to our economic knees because the great majority of Americans have basically rejected Gospel principles. The money in America says, 'In GOD we trust'. Do we really trust God? There is a terrible price to be paid when Gospel values are not lived one person at a time. While in their own minds Americans consider themselves to be a generous people, in reality they are proving to be anything but. (http://www.therationalradical.com/dsep/1101/america-generous.htm). The rich countries of the world have consistently gone to the poor countries in the southern hemisphere, taken their natural resources and then left these poor countries with a debt to pay. More than 80% of the wealth of the world is in the hands of less than 20% of the people of the world. Politicians of the rich countries seek to make richer their citizens at the expense of the poor countries in order to be reelected. Remember “Three Days of the Condor (1975) with Robert Redford? Do we try to do our small part in overcoming this big greed game of “the rich get richer and the poor get poorer” by supporting “Distance Adoption” or “Aid to the Church in Need” or …? Most people do not want to know or discover the fact that all we have comes from God and that we are stewards of the goods we have; at the end of our life we will all have to render an account (Mt 25). All we have is from God. As we Catholics hear on “Ash Wednesday”, “Remember, you are dust and to dust you shall return!” The great majority of Catholics around the world do not even have one hour a week to thank God, for all that we have received, in the Most Blessed Sacrament, after a good sincere confession. If God is at such a low priority in our lives as not to have even an hour for Him once a week, can we really pretend or convince ourselves that “we all go to heaven”? Or have we arrived even to the point of conveniently convincing ourselves that heaven does not exist and that the seventy or so times that Jesus refers to hell in the four Gospels is ridiculous and we intelligent, wise people know more than Jesus?!?

America, as a democracy, is as good as its people. As a nation, we are TURNING OUR BACKS ON GOD. We will receive what we deserve. Over seventy years ago in the young Communist nation of Russia, its new hope, during a financial crisis, Mr. Lenin was quoted as saying “we must patiently advance along the ‘roads to power’ until power falls like a ripe fruit.” The Russian people were not afraid of Stalin before the election.

IF A BUCK PRIVATE IN A WAR does not live up to his responsibilities, there will not be too much damage. BUT IF A GENERAL does not live up to his responsibilities it will cause considerable damage. So too those who have received more in this spiritual battle (as instruments of God) in this “cosmic struggle” as Pope John Paul II puts it, will cause considerable damage if they do not live up to and fulfill their GOD GIVEN RESPONSIBILITY.

“Why Are We Traditional Catholics? (One Mother’s Open Letter to Her Grown Children) (http://www.remnantnewspaper.com/Archives/2010-0215-bagnoli-letter-to-grown-children.htm).

GOD SPEAKS TO US IN SILENCE; those who succeed in diminishing the external and internal noises (sin) begin to be able to tune into the frequency of the subtle whisperings of the Holy Spirit. The revelations to the shepherds, who found baby Jesus 2000 years ago, did not make the Jerusalem Gazette; no reporter came to interview Mary, the Mother of God.

In the ultimate end, each of us, according to the choices we make, whether we like it or not (or WHETHER WE BELIEVE IT OR NOT!), will end up spending eternity with a benevolent dictator, God, or a tyrannical, cruel dictator, Satan. There is no other place to which to flee after death, unless these little gods are capable of creating a paradise with the great powers they believe they have! Due to our great dignity of being created in the image of God, there will be only two places for all eternity; either in extreme unimaginable happiness and bliss, or in inconceivable pain and the separation of the creature from it’s Creator. One cannot commit suicide after death because God never goes back on His word and ordinances; He created us in His image with an immortal soul (Gen 1:26-27). Purgatory is a temporary place of purification so as to be able to enter heaven in a perfect state; nothing imperfect can enter heaven where there dwells the perfect God!

28. “You Are Of Your Father”Here on earth, Satan almost always disguises himself as an angel of light (2Cor 11:14). Satan does all he can to convince people that the devil and hell do not exist so then people are not motivated to strive constantly to live according to the norms of the Gospel or of the ten Commandments or according to any other guide that stunts their “good” way and veiled egotistical style of living. Those in the state of grace, who truly follow and live God’s commandments and Gospel, will be able to RECOGNIZE THIS DECEPTION. For those who do not "God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." (2Thess 2:11-12). “The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders” (2Thess 2:9). This is why the ever more numerous people, who are not in the state of grace, follow people who are charismatic, use BEAUTIFUL AND ATTRACTIVE RHETORIC AND SLOGANS; they are not able to see what is under this glossy venire sustained by a very powerful propaganda from the mass media. These numerous deluded people no longer want to make the effort to discover the facts or to study how each candidate has voted in the past either along the lines of the Gospel and for the culture of life, or instead has voted consistently against the Gospel and for the culture of death. So many today do not try to discover the real fruits of these clever leaders and politicians or even to study their backgrounds. “And none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand” (Dan 12:10).

“Change, we need!” What kind of change?!? Will these “enlightened” politicians let us “CHANGE” the regime of “Roe v. Wade”??? They use nice slogans like “The Common Good”, “Social Justice”, “Women’s reproductive rights!” which is one of their code words for contraception, etc. But words are cheap! WHAT ARE THEIR DEEDS? What are their fruits? How does the voting record of our politicians square with true Christian values? “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is not strange if HIS SERVANTS ALSO DISGUISE THEMSELVES AS SERVANTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. Their end will correspond to their deeds” (2Cor 11:14-15)! “Beware of false prophets which come to you in sheep’s clothing…” (Mt 24:11,24; Mk 13:22).

FOR PEOPLE OF GOOD WILL, IT IS DIFFICULT, OR AT LEAST BOTHERSOME TO SAY A LIE WITH A BIG SMILE AND THEN DO EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE. But for those who have freely and continually rejected the graces and inspirations of their Creator and even given their soul to Satan, it is very easy and especially convenient and expedient for them to speak beautiful lies to others and do exactly the opposite as it serves their hidden agenda; in this behavior they have no scruples whatsoever! Many people of good will, believing that others are like themselves, believe such liars just as they would believe a person of good will and thus presume they are sincere, giving them the benefit of the doubt. But the real truth is that by now most Americans and people of the world have slid away from the truth stamped in their hearts by the Creator and revealed in many other ways, and have lived this lie for many years in their own personal lives. Thus they easily buy into the lies of these world manipulators and do not see the deception nor where these deceivers are leading the people of the US and the rest of the world. Adolf Hitler said: “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough it will be believed!” If hearts are not changed, it is useless to change the evil laws; these laws will only take on another evil form until hearts are changed toward love of God and neighbor.

Wiki Answers responds to the question: WHY IS THE DEVIL CALLED THE FATHER OF LIES? Because he functions on deception. He has to deceive people from the Truth in order to get them on his side. The devil is an angel that turned from God. Jesus came into the world to shine a light in the darkness and expose the devil for what he is - a liar. All lies come from the devil. (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_is_the_devil_called_the_father_of_lies).
“YOU ARE OF YOUR FATHER the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (Jn 8:44).

I am so sad that so many are no longer right with God (not in the state of grace) and thus so easily believe such people with beautiful words, rhetoric, smiles, enthusiasm, promises, without looking at the fruits as Jesus told us to do (Mt 7:15-20)! As a people, a nation, we deserve what we get and what we will get in the future!

THOSE OF GOOD WILL, WILL HAVE TO SUFFER with those who are not sincere and not of good will, just as Christ, the GOOD and TRUE ONE, suffered and died for all of us sinners! “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church…” (Col 1:24). The Catholic Church is perhaps the only guide to help us understand the value of suffering as well as to show us how to suffer. Sorry dear evangelical brothers in Christ, there will not be a “rapture” to save us from the crucifixion of “his body, that is, the church”! "The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church" (Tertullian; “Apologeticus”, Chapter 50). We look in every place but the right place. The right place to look is at the intersection of the beams of the cross. We will find no real wisdom unless we look at the cross. On the cross we find the answer. If you look any place else you are wasting your time. Love is the cross and the cross is love. Jesus gives the biggest share of His cross to His best friends. Read the lives of the Saints. Oh, the joy, to suffer in Jesus. Without a cross, there is no authentic Christianity. There is no Resurrection without the Crucifixion; there is no Easter without Good Friday! This applies not only for Jesus, but for all of His true follower. In the history of the Church, the saints considered suffering and martyrdom one of the greatest gifts that Jesus could share with His beloved followers! The saints were in love with THEIR BELOVED; they wanted to be like Him – CRUCIFIED! “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Phil 1:21)!
Doing the will of God not only includes loving each person before us in each present moment, believing that Jesus hides behind each person (especially in “the least of these my brethren” – Mt 25:40), but also this following of Jesus inevitably entails recognizing, embracing and loving Christ Crucified in our daily sufferings and sorrows! NO PAIN, NO GAIN! NO CROSS, NO CROWN!

“God does not punish, if anything he permits these trials and adversities, so that the soul might be able to atone for the committed faults, knowing how to accept them and offer them in expiation. THAT WHICH OF EVIL HAPPENS TO MY CHILDREN, IS ALWAYS A CONSEQUENCE OF SIN.” (January 5, 2006;

29. Honorary Doctorate at Notre Dame?After NOTRE DAME'S PRESIDENT, the Rev. John I. Jenkins, quoted words from Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI as well as the Second Vatican Council, he repeated that: “President Obama has come to Notre Dame, though he knows well that we are fully supportive of Church teaching on the sanctity of human life, and we oppose his policies on abortion and embryonic stem cell research” (http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles_of_faith/2009/05/rev_jenkinss_re.html).
But, in only a few months, Obama has changed all the major laws protecting unborn babies and then Notre Dame bestows on Obama an honorary doctorate degree!?! ACTIONS SPEAK MUCH LOUDER THAN RHETORICAL WORDS!
Should we fear someone who has a masters in religious education, but is blind and is leading the blind? We don't need a priest (heretic) to help us along on the road to hell. Education should lead one into a deeper study of truth. You can educate yourself into imbecility if you do not have true humility.

As for Notre Dame University, it is so tragic that SO-CALLED friends of unborn babies would give Mr. Obama such a visible platform to promote his deadly agenda. “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ” (2Cor 11:13).
Notre Dame denied the U.S. Catholic bishops guidelines of 2004 which stated to not honor people who are prominent opponents of fundamental Catholic positions on fundamental issues.
This honor given by Notre Dame cannot be separated from the validation of putting into operation a very pro-abortion agenda, the most pro-abortion record and the most pro-abortion set of campaign promises that any U.S. presidential candidate has ever made.
Obama sounded all the right notes of willingness to enter into dialogue, but we must look at what the actions have been, what the announced policies have been. What did this moment provide for Obama, and what will be the long term impact of Obama speaking with almost a Catholic imprimatur now upon his policies and upon his words?
It was a very polished commencement speech and it was certainly well calculated to further, what was the political purpose, which was to bind that proportion of the Catholic vote to this set of political goals. But it is even more troublesome what the affect that Notre Dame did on the state of catechesis of American Catholics generally.

There is developing the view that has no support in the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. There is developing a view that there are two approaches to the life/social justice issues. One is the “reasonable balanced” approach that there are many issues: just war, capital punishment, abortion, euthanasia, stem cell research, ... and that they can be balanced off against one another. The other view is the one expressed clearly by the Church in the documents of the Second Vatican Council and in the writings of Pope Benedict.

Cardinal Ratzinger's statement "Worthiness to Receive Communion: General Principles": "Not all moral issues have the same moral weight as abortion and euthanasia. For example, if a Catholic were to be at odds with the Holy Father on the application of capital punishment or on the decision to wage war, he would not for that reason be considered unworthy to present himself to receive Holy Communion. While the Church exhorts civil authorities to seek peace, not war, and to exercise discretion and mercy in imposing punishment on criminals, it may still be permissible to take up arms to repel an aggressor or to have recourse to capital punishment. There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with regard to abortion and euthanasia.

See the story of MARY ANN GLENDON, the anti-abortion academic who said NO to a Notre Dame speaking engagement and the prestigious ‘Laetare Medal’ award in a pointed letter to Father Jenkins. Among many other arguments, she writes: “In some quarters my Catholic Church in America has begun to look like a club in recent years. Many worshipers attend Catholic churches for the parties, safe schools and sense of community. That is all fine if the main goal is realized, but some parishioners have only a vague sense of moral clarity while many local priests advocate dubious Catholic teachings in their presence. Many of my fellow worshipers appear to be CONVENIENCE CATHOLICS, left rudderless by local priests with dubious social agendas....” (http://www.rightpundits.com/?p=3818)

WE MUST SEEK THE TRUTH, NOT AGENDAS!

BISHOP OLMSTED ACCUSES PRESIDENT JENKINS OF DISOBEDIENCE:
Dear Fr. Jenkins,
I am saddened and heavy of heart about your decision to invite President Obama to speak at Notre Dame University and even receive an honorary degree.
It is a public act of disobedience to the Bishops of the United States. Our USCCB June 2004 Statement "Catholics in Political Life" states: "The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions." No one could not know of the public stands and actions of the president on key issues opposed to the most vulnerable human beings.
John Paul II said, "Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights -- for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture -- is false and illusory if THE RIGHT TO LIFE, THE MOST BASIC AND FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT AND CONDITION FOR ALL OTHER PERSONAL RIGHTS, is not defended with the maximum determination."
I pray that you come to see the grave mistake of your decision, and the way that it undercuts the Church's proclamation of the Gospel of Life in our day.
Bishop Thomas J. Olmstead; Diocese of Phoenix

President Barack Obama used his commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame on Sunday to call for conscience rights for physicians on abortion. However, his administration has already proposed overturning a measure President Bush put in place to uphold these CONSCIENCE LAWS. (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5057.html).
Even congressmen challenged President Obama on his Abortion-Conscience Clause Promise at Notre Dame (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5068.html)!
At the Notre Dame speech, Obama said we need to find and come up with a sensible conscience clause. The question is, and this is the problem with Obama, what does that mean “a sensible conscience”? Does that mean that one who does not fully respect the conscience of those the clause is intended to protect?
Some of the proposals would give some conscience protection EXCEPT in cases where no other health care worker is available to perform the service of abortion. So that is not that different from having no conscience clause at all.

But, in listening to Obama's speech, bioethics attorney Wesley J. Smith was struck by Obama's esurient desire to be seen as moderate on abortion yet taking hypocritical actions.
"I WAS REMINDED OF HOW ADEPT OBAMA IS IN SAYING ONE THING WHILE DOING JUST THE OPPOSITE; such as claiming in his speech to support a conscience clause for health professionals on the issue of abortion," he said.
"Obama--or at least his administration (is there a difference?) plans to revoke the Bush conscience clause, not revise it (http://www.lifenews.com/nat4893.html). That is hardly honoring heterodox thinkers' consciences," Smith added.
Smith says Obama has had the opportunity "to steer a moderate course ... and he rejected the moderate course."
"Which brings to mind another trite old saying; TALK IS CHEAP," Smith concluded. (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5057.html)

THE ATTACK IS ON RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND ON CONSCIENCE RIGHTS. No dictatorship has ever allowed religious liberty or conscience rights. The culture of death dream team took over in the White House in January 2009. They are forcing the contraceptive agenda, abortion, even overseas; it is unreal how quickly these things are taking place. It is galvanizing!

“THE U.S. IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE SPREAD OF HIV/AIDS AMONG AFRICAN WOMEN by its reckless distribution of hormonal contraceptives of all kinds in so-called “reproductive health” programs. This is in addition to pornographic sex education and the massive distribution of condoms—both of which encourage risky sexual behaviors. Population control, anyone?” by Steven W. Mosher (http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=320247047930&topic=16418).

THERE IS NOW A FIRESTORM AT BELMONT ABBEY COLLEGE where the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled Belmont Abbey College must include coverage for contraception (which often functions as abortifacients) in its employee health insurance plan. (http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2009/08/judie-brown-support-belmont-abbey.html).
While the ruling of the EOC accuses Belmont Abbey College of discriminating, it is precisely the opposite. The college is not discriminating against anybody. The college is not telling others what they have to do or how they must live their life. Why is the federal government coming into the home of the college and saying that the college has to live in a certain way? They are saying that the college must subsidize things that are against the beliefs and conscience of the college. It is discriminating against people of religious belief and faith. Relativism claims tolerance and love but in reality these champions of relativism are totally intolerant when it comes to allowing others to live out their beliefs. It comes down to might, to force. UNLESS EVERYONE HAS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, NO ONE HAS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM! This is a time that all Christians have to be galvanized, to come together, to be unified. We cannot sit on the sidelines anymore!

To: Faithful Catholics (June 10, 2010)
From: Hon. Rick Santorum, Former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania
Subject: CATHOLIC COLLEGES ARE UNDERMINING THE BISHOPS
“As someone who treasures our Catholic Faith, I write with great concern. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo recently said that Catholics who lobbied for the health care reform law—ignoring the Bishops' warnings about abortion funding and weak conscience protections—had caused "confusion and a wound to Catholic unity." And to make matters worse, among those working against the Church on pro-life health care were educators at our Catholic colleges. And then there is this: President Obama's latest addition to the powerful Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a same-sex marriage advocate whose concept of "sexual liberty" would trump our religious liberty.

Perhaps in an effort (pretext?) to rehabilitate the United States’ image in the Muslim world, the Obama administration has joined a U.N. effort to restrict religious speech. This country should never sacrifice freedom of expression on the altar of religion. Around the world, free speech is being sacrificed on the altar of religion. Whether defined as hate speech, discrimination or simple blasphemy, governments are declaring unlimited free speech as the enemy of “freedom of religion”. How ironic! One might ask what religion? Certainly not the religion of Jesus Christ! This growing movement has reached the United Nations, where religiously conservative countries received a boost in their campaign to pass an international blasphemy law. It came from the most unlikely of places: the United States. (http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2009/10/column-just-say-no-to-blasphemy-laws-.html).

“Employment Non-Discrimination Act seen jeopardizing religious freedom” by Catholic News Service (May 28, 2010). Washington – A letter from the chairmen of three committees of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has stated the bishops’ opposition to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act because of the bill’s potential to “JEOPARDIZE OUR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM TO LIVE OUR FAITH AND MORAL TENETS IN TODAY’S SOCIETY.” (http://www.catholicreview.org/subpages/storyworldnew-new.aspx?action=8215).

It is too bad, and very tragic, that the majority of Americans vote for and follow CHEAP TALK! St. John warns us: “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but TEST THE SPIRITS to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1Jn 4:1). Why do voters today throughout the world vote for the pretty faces, nice words and rhetoric and charismatic speeches instead of taking the time to see if a candidate has voted in the past in favor of the principles of the Gospel and for the culture of life, or against the principles of the Gospel and for the culture of death? OBAMA LEAVES THE PEOPLE WITH THE IMPRESSION THAT HE AGREES WITH THEM. As always, at Notre Dame, he was very friendly, and conciliatory. But we have not seen any indication whatsoever of ceding of ground on the life issues.

After “Obama's slump” (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/world_news_america/8235039.stm), the world controllers have tried to bolster his popularity by awarding him the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE. Obama’s only achievement at the time he was nominated was exporting taxpayer-funded abortions. Obama hadn't accomplished much else in office when the nominations were finalized. (http://www.lifenews.com/int1345.html; “President Barack Obama and the late Mother Teresa have something in common” (http://www.lifenews.com/int1344.html). “Majority of Americans Disagree With Nobel Prize for Pro-Abortion Barack Obama” (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5582.html). “If Obama can get one, you can, too”; (http://www.freep.com/article/20091011/COL01/910110484//).

IN CAIRO, OBAMA QUOTED THE KORAN FIVE TIMES INCLUDING: “Whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he killed all of mankind.” NICE WORDS! But the unwanted unborn babies?!? This same logic of Roe v. Wade has been used to justify laws of assisted suicide; is this not the same slippery slope of using terminology to deprive value and human existence to those who are unable to defend themselves? Should not our government policy be used primarily to protect those who are defenseless and vulnerable instead of putting them more at risk? Is life not the most fundamental right and value to be protected by any government?

MANY TODAY DO NOT REALIZE THAT ABORTION IS MURDER. This is partly because of the teaching strength and value of the law. People say, well, the law is neither here nor there; it is just allowing a procedure that women should have access to. The law has taught our culture that unborn human life is not valuable since it is not in the category of murder according to the law. So people think, well if President Obama thinks this way, that’s fine; I think differently but we are both fine. But what is true then? There is no God-given truth according to most people today, and therefore no sin. If I feel good, that means I am a good person at the end of the day.
PRIESTS AND BISHOPS HAVE TO SPEAK OUT FROM THE PULPITS. Some do so, but so many just do not want to cause a controversy. They want to talk about love on Sunday. Everybody loves; God loves you; we are loving, etc. But where is the love if you are going to tolerate the killing of unborn children, or tolerate other sins such as active euthanasia deriving from the contraceptive mentality and the contraceptive culture that surrounds us today?

It was discovered in a study that if the father of the family attends church regularly, with or without his wife, about 75% of the children continue this practice later. If the mother attends church regularly without her husband, less than 40% of the children continue this practice later. If both the father and the mother attend church regularly, about 80% of the children follow. GOD HAD GIVEN EACH THEIR BUILT-IN ROLES. A priest has been given the grace to be both the father and the mother of his parishioners; if he only does the mother part, the fruits will be greatly diminished.

People have been led to say, well you know, you can be Catholic, there are different versions of Catholic. BUT THERE IS WHAT THE CHURCH TEACHES. One can stay in the Church or leave it. That is each one’s choice. But we cannot remake the whole thing because we are uncomfortable with one or two teachings. Don't mess with a strong mans bride. (The Church, the bride of Christ).

The pro-abortionist campaign, along with Obama, have made an EXTREMELY SUBTLE SHIFT from saying they want to “reduce the number of abortions” to “reducing the number of women in need of abortion”. After all, they do not want to admit that abortion is an evil! In this way they take the onus off the practice itself. They claim the solution is to promote contraception as we see in the stimulus bills and other recent bills. It is incredible that there has been no study done yet to show that the promotion of contraception brings down unplanned pregnancy rates or abortions anywhere this policy has been tried such as in Scotland, Sweden, UK, Africa, California. The promotion of contraception encourages people to adopt more risky behaviors and live more risky life styles causing the abortion rate to go up as well as the skyrocketing of sexually transmitted diseases among teens.

WHAT REALLY WORKS are laws that involve parental involvement and consent; funding bans against publicly funded abortions through the Medicaid program; informed consent; having waiting periods where women can actually, once they have made that appointment for an abortion, to be able to consider: “maybe this is not the right thing for me” and then reaching out for more help. All of these laws have had a measurable impact on bringing down abortions. ALL OF THESE PROVEN MEANS HAVE BEEN UNDERMINED AND CONSISTENTLY REJECTED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. Obama shrewdly realizes that it is better not to seek straight out to fulfill his campaign promise to Planned Parenthood: "The first thing I'd do as president is sign the "Freedom of Choice Act"!” So he will do it slowly and incrementally, “by stealth”, so as not to cause a reaction. If you throw a frog into boiling water, it immediately reacts and jumps out. If you put the FROG IN COLD WATER AND SLOWLY HEAT IT UP, the frog does not jump out and ends up cooked! WE ARE COOKED!

“After America, There is No Place to Go. I don't believe I am the only one to see frightening similarities. America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don't Let Freedom Slip Away.” By Kitty Werthmann: “What I am about to tell you is something you've probably never heard or will ever read in history books. I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I CANNOT TELL YOU THAT HITLER TOOK AUSTRIA BY TANKS AND GUNS; IT WOULD DISTORT HISTORY. We elected him by a landslide 98% of the vote. I've never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force. …” (http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/after-america-there-is-no-place-to-go/blog-254691/).

Amidst all of the American flags and presidential seals, there was something missing when President Barack Obama gave an economic speech at GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY this week -- JESUS.
A DECISION TO COVER UP A SYMBOL OF JESUS for the president's speech at Georgetown is upsetting many.
The Catholic University spokesman Victor Nakas, who felt a bit more strongly on the subject said: "I can’t imagine, as the bishops’ university and the national university of the Catholic Church, that we would ever cover up our religious art or signage for any reason... Our Catholic faith is integral to our identity as an institution of higher education." (http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Jesus-Missing-From-Obamas-Georgetown-Speech.html).
What type of a person, or creature, would want to cover up a symbol of Jesus?

Obama visits the Pope; Billy Graham, Notre Dame; Georgetown… Is this not how Satan works to draw those not yet in his fold with him while portraying himself as an “angel of light”! Watch out for false gods! 1Jn 5:21

30. A Deaf Ear to the Success of Adult Stem Cell Research!At Notre Dame, Obama said the following: “Those who speak out against stem cell research may be rooted in admirable conviction about the sacredness of life, but so are the parents of a child with juvenile diabetes who are convinced that their son's or daughter's hardships can be relieved.” It is amazing that people did not gasp at Obama’s lack of knowledge in regards to juvenile diabetes which has been successfully treated with adult stem cell research, along with spinal cord injuries, repairing limbs, and so many other human ailments. PEOPLE FAIL TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN EMBRYONIC AND ADULT STEM CELL RESEARCH. One is killing human life, and the other is not killing human life! The Catholic Church is not against science or research, but it has to be moral.

“THE CULTURE OF LIFE MEANS RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE FROM CONCEPTION UNTIL ITS NATURAL END.” – Pope John Paul II.

Imagine the protest there would be regarding a litter of puppies, if a person decided to distribute some to a friend, keep four, and donate the rest for research! I am grateful to God to be alive! At one time I too was an embryo and a fetus!

Scientists come with all kinds of excuses for killing human life. “Stem Cells Behave Very Differently In Space, Study Says”. In the article they only tell you: “Embryonic stem cells can differentiate into any of the body's hundreds of cell types.” (http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2010-05/stem-cells-grow-differently-low-gravity-study-says).

But the vast majority of so-called scientists do not tell us that EMBRYOS HAVE A STRONG TENDENCY TO FORM TUMORS and cancers because they are so uncontrollable. But even if embryos had all sorts of promise for cures, we cannot go there; we cannot have the ends justify the means, that destroying human life, killing human life to hopefully save a dear person who is strong enough to defend himself. This is absolutely not permissible.

With the Obama administration, there is a BACKTRACKING IN ADULT STEM CELL RESEARCH as shown in Obama’s executive order, even in the promising area of reprogramming research with adult stem cell research. Does not Obama claim that his administration will live or fall on science? Well, science has spoken with flexible pluripotent adult stem cells, but there is this willful blind spot to not admit science into the concrete policies in this area.

31. The Health Care BillWe certainly need health care reform. But real health care respects life! The new HEALTH CARE BILL mandates abortion and contraceptives on demand, paid by the tax payers, of course, in an economic crisis, as well as coercing every existing health care plan in America to include abortion and contraceptives. It encourages in many ways the elderly to not seek any specially treatment to prolong their lives, even those treatments considered to be ordinary means by the Catholic Church. The bill encourages the elder to check into Hospice and die to give the money to their children. The end of life costs will lead the government to deny many people treatment. This is the biggest federal grab that we have ever seen; this is socialized medicine. There will be huge categories of diseases and disabilities that will get inadequate amounts of money to do what can be done. The bill will stifle innovation in the area of breakthroughs that mitigate pain and improve the quality of life as well as the actual life expectancy.

In the Health Care reform legislation, we are told by the National Right to Life Committee that as currently drafted (August 2009), this legislation would result in the greatest expansion of abortion since the Supreme Court handed down it “Roe v. Wade” decision in 1973. Other experts say that the bill will mandate tax-payer funded abortions and abortion coverage in virtually all health care plans. And now we are also being warned that this legislation may even start us down the path for government encouraged euthanasia. Clearly, a health care system that is designed to save lives, on the one hand, must not become a vehicle for taking lives through abortion and euthanasia. HEALTH CARE REFORM LEGISLATION MUST BE ABORTION FREE. The solution is clear: simply add a provision to the five or six hundred pages of this legislation, that clearly excludes abortion and euthanasia from the bill. That is what we should urge congress to do. “Montana Supreme Court Makes State Third to Allow Unlimited Assisted Suicide” (http://www.lifenews.com/bio3027.html).

This is a long standing problem that we have had. Francis Crick and James Watson, the Nobel Prize winners for unraveling the DNA, in Prism magazine, years ago, recommended a demise pill; when people become 80, they take the demise pill and they die. We see in places like Switzerland where the “Dignity” organization routinely euthanizes people. We see in Holland where juvenile euthanasia is now permitted so young children are being killed. It is anything but mercy killing; it is active euthanasia. You lessen the pool by killing people as they enter life and you winnow the expenses by shoving grandma and grandpa down into the death chute. Pregnancy will be put into the category of diseases and thus denied help. There are those who will deny payment for those unborn children who have handicaps which can be mitigated. Peter Singer, James Watson and many others want to wait for many days or even years to define personhood so as to discover defects and then kill the human beings. So many are encouraged to abort their child because they could possible have a genetic defect. But so many times it is not true. But even if the child does have a defect, it is still precious in the eyes of God! There is such a utilitarian value being put on life. HAVE WE MADE OURSELVES GOD, the AUTHOR OF LIFE?!? Are we playing GOD? “I will decide when life begins and when life ends!” Are we going toward living the Gospel of altruism and self sacrifice for others as Christ crucified lived and died for each of us, or are we going toward the “Culture of Death”, of egoism and self indulgence at the expense (death!) of others, especially the weakest and unwanted who cannot defend themselves? Whether we believe it or like it or not, an infinitely Just God does exist, as well as heaven and hell for all eternity!

“Study Finds Patients Thought to be in "Vegetative State" Have Active Brain Activity” (http://www.lifenews.com/bio3046.html).

Money becomes more important than the human person. The bill stipulates that a committee will be formed, all Obama appointees, who will decide what the essential benefits are after the bill is passed; EVERYTHING CAN BE CHANGED AFTER THE BILL IS PASSED! Of course, abortion and contraceptives will be a core benefit at a time when fewer women are procuring abortions. Eighty seven percent of the counties in America do not have an abortionist plying their ugly trade against mothers and young women. The coercive power of the state will enforce more abortion clinics. Planned Parenthood, which already performs more than 300,000 abortions each year in the US, will become the go-to-people endorsed by the bill. Many are being bullied into voting for this bill. The slightest use of ambiguous words, or even a comma that is missing, will allow pro abortionists to REINTERPRET THE BILL AS THEY LIKE, AFTER IT IS PASSED, as they so often did during the Clinton administration. In the UK and so many other countries, when the bureaucrats came into the health care equation, the outcomes were dramatically worse. Other people, who are not relatives or friends, will make these decisions for you. Many diseased will get inadequate amounts of money and innovation will be stifled. The liberal use the excuse of helping the poor, but it is really a front for other motives, just like Judas Iscariot who did not want to waste expensive oil on the feet of Jesus (Jn 12:3).

“Planned Parenthood Centers Using Dangerous Abortion Drug More, Survey Shows” (http://www.lifenews.com/nat6136.html).

“Researchers Asked to Hide Scientific Debate over Maternal Deaths” by Susan Yoshihara, Ph.D. (June 3, 2010). (NEW YORK – C-FAM) At a meeting on maternal and child health research in Washington last week, United Nations (UN) staff and abortion advocates told scientists they should “harmonize” their findings or discuss them “in a locked room” so that the press could not report maternal death numbers that conflicted with the ones they use to lobby policy makers and major international donors. (http://www.c-fam.org/publications/id.1641/pub_detail.asp).

Bobby Schindler, the brother of TERRI SCHIAVO, knows a thing or two about health care rationing. Forced to sit idly by as his sister's estranged husband deprived her of food and water for a period of 13 days before she died, Schindler is concerned the government-run health bills in Congress will foster rationing (“Terri Schiavo's Brother Concerned by Rationing in Congressional Health Care Bills”; http://www.lifenews.com/bio2907.html).

As so many other bills under the Obama administration, this bill will undermine even further subsidiarity and BRING ALL THE POWER OF DECISION MAKING TO THE CENTRAL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Subsidiarity will be totally eliminated under the “New World Order”! The master world, godless, world planners have a lot at stake in this health care bill! “Millions spent to sway health care opinions”; (http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/10/15/health.care.lobbying/).

“Public Health Tab to Hit Milestone” (Feb. 2010) - For the first time, government programs next year will account for more than half of all U.S. health-care spending, federal actuaries predict, as the weak economy sends more people into Medicaid and slows growth of private insurance. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703575004575043490639289022.html?mod=rss_Today's_Most_Popular).

A centralized government bureaucracy running the government and running health care for the entire nation WILL LIMIT THE OPTIONS AND YET FORCE THINGS UPON THE POPULATION THAT THEY OTHERWISE WOULD NOT BE WILLING TO ACCEPT. There will be the reduction of personalized care, expanded bureaucracy, and the lose of personal responsibility. It is like a “Pie in the sky”, all covered, utopia, … which will lead to unjust taxes that are unsustainable.

UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE IS GOOD, BUT THE WAY IN WHICH WE GET THERE MUST BE CAREFULLY CONSIDERED. The entire program as set up in principle with Federal power to determine everything from what has to be in your health insurance policy to what it costs, to what treatments will be approved, to how physicians will be punished for falling outside of spending guidelines… In principal it puts too much power in the hands of government. It is wrong and experience shows that that power will likely be abused.

People do not feel they are involved or engaged with the health care system. Often when health care is provided by the government or by the employer, people feel it is free health care but it is not free health care. EVERYONE IS ALWAYS MORE CAREFUL WITH THEIR OWN MONEY, but everybody is always freer with other people’s money. This is precisely why health care costs are so high. Once you throw everybody into a pool and you say this is all free because other people are paying for it, people are then shielded from the real costs.

WE MUST INVITE THE PRIVATE SECTOR TO BRING THE EXPERTISE THAT THEY HAVE TO BEAR; WE MUST LET THE MARKETS WORK, WHICH IS THE PRINCIPLE OF SUBSIDIARITY. This brings it closer to the individuals who need care; whenever they can make choices for themselves and for their families that have an impact on their lives, there is a greater protection of human dignity. The delivery system needs to be closer to the people who are sick.
They say they are going to save money by looking after MEDICARE ABUSES. Medicare abuses have been taking place ever since the program was installed in 1965, and they have not come close to doing it. What makes them think that they are going to be able to do it now when they have not been able to do it for 35 years?

What we are seeing is a Congress and an administration that is trying to speed up this process, one which they wanted done before August 1st, so that the American public cannot continue to oppose what they are trying to pass. The Republican party is accused of being the party of “NO”! BUT THE DEMOCRATS ARE THE PARTY OF NO; they keep telling the American people NO because they are going to do what they want regardless of how the public views it. The Republicans believe that the patient should be empowered to be the consumers of health care and to allow the free market to expand and with transparency so that the people can make their own decisions and costs can come down. The democratic model is based upon the government running the health care whereby they try to reduce the supply of health care, ration it out, and as the demographic demand pressures continue to rise, all you are going to see is costs go up, quality go down and the government being empowered. Why is the democratic controlled congress and this democratic administration all intent upon doing something that republicans, independents and democrats do not want done according to the polls?

PROPOSALS FOR THE HEALTH CARE REFORM:
1) Make it easier for individuals and families to buy their own policies and even to pool their own resources in ways that makes sense to them. The Knights of Columbus started as a life insurance association; we could have many more associations like that based on faith or geography or interest where people could pool their recourses in a way that makes sense to them. This has to be made easier. Groups must be able to sell insurance across state lines.
2) Give people incentives to spend their money wisely. The way it works right now, the employer provides each person with supposed benefits and there is this feeling that it is free so you might as well use it.
3) We have tremendous problems with Medicare and Medicaid. We need to fix those programs first, and work toward reform, which is not even mentioned by our law makers. There is an irony to think that only the government can do it.

WHAT WILL PROBABLY HAPPEN is that there will be a last minute offer to distract the American people from the huge government takeover and then after it is passed all the power will be given to the Secretary of Health and Human Services to do as she pleases.

I never thought I would live to see the day, at least not until the election last year. The following statement appears on the Kremlin, I mean, White House website.
“There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.

The Obama “administration has asked citizens to report things that sound "fishy."

USCCB Bishop’s Conference was accused of joining a petition to the FCC which called for discussion over “HATE SPEECH” and its alleged role in violence. Some critics of the petition have cast it as an effort to shut down radio show hosts like Rush Limbaugh. It seem that the commissioner of the FCC was somehow involved in getting people to give to him a petition on “Hate Speech” so that he could respond to it. When you are begging the FCC to investigate “hate speech”; who are going to be the first people targeted? It seems that they are looking for getting moral and religious cover for an investigation into conservative talk radio. This would theoretically involve EWTN, or your local Catholic or protestant radio station. Anyone talking about abortion, about same sex marriages, anyone who dares to suggest that taking elderly people and marching them off to the hospice chute is somehow a bad thing. This is all going to fall under hate speech. We have seen it in Canada already. THIS IS LIKE GIVING THE LOADED REVOLVER TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO USE IT AGAINST YOU. This happened at a time when you have the administration targeting certain news outlets who are less favorable in their coverage. It is very partisan. “USCCB Did Not Join FCC Petition on Hate Speech, Spokeswoman Says”; (http://www.ewtn.com/vnews/getstory.asp?number=98431).

IN AMERICA, EVERY CITIZEN IS EQUAL IN THE EYES OF THE LAW. BUT SOME CITIZENS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS. That's the mixed message sent by the new hate crimes legislation that passed in the House last week. The legislation changed the definition of a federal hate crime to cover crimes committed because of a victim's gender, sexual orientation or "gender identity" -- defined as one's "actual or perceived gender-related characteristics." It also expanded the federal government's authority to prosecute such crimes if the feds conclude that the states have not sufficiently punished the perpetrators.
The upshot: Another protected class of victims has been created in America. And another blow has been dealt to America's bedrock legal principle of equal justice for all.
Gay-rights activists and their advocates in Congress have labored for more than a decade to carve out this special protection for gays and lesbians over the objections of civil libertarians, religious leaders and even some prominent gay commentators. After failing to sell the idea on its merits, backers recently tucked it into an unrelated military appropriations bill, thus forcing lawmakers to choose between supporting the troops and opposing the hate-crimes provision. The ploy worked, paving the way for expected easy passage in the Senate and a promised signature from President Barack Obama.

STUPAK CAN’T HYDE
What a tragedy. After standing firm for so long against such pressure, Michigan Congressman Bart Stupak (D) betrayed his fellow pro-lifers and bought in to a worthless promise from the Abortion President. The Stupak Amendment banning abortion funding in health care garnered 240 votes in the House. The final vote on this unconstitutional and unwise health care takeover – which includes federal funding of abortion – was 219.
What will we remember about poor Bart Stupak?
That he stood firm, except when it really counted? That he bravely took months and months of abuse, only to fold at the last minute? That he accepted a worthless scrap of paper from the most determined pro-abortion President in U.S. history?

The Catholic Health Association and 55 nuns gave their personal blessings to Obamacare, even though the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops opposed it. Apparently they heed the theology of Speaker Pelosi. That gave political cover to "Catholics" who voted for Obamacare. So did the Executive Order ploy that served as a tiny fig leaf for once pro-life Congressman Bart Stupak of Michigan.

“Sr. Keehan's Legacy - Praise from Obama, Disappointment from Bishops”
Considering “the most vulnerable among us”, those who cannot defend themselves, those who cannot vote to protect themselves, those who cannot stand to fight for their lives in their own mothers’ wombs, listen to this incredible hypocrisy: “Obama called the legislation a major victory "for our nation, for human dignity, and for the most vulnerable among us." In another part of the video, the CHA's own narrator speaks of how in working for health care reform, Catholic health care providers gave a "voice to those without one".” (June 15, 2010; http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2010/jun/10061503.html).
THESE ARROGANT, REBELLIOUS “CATHOLIC” RELIGIOUS SISTERS, WHO CLAIMED TO REPRESENT THE RELIGIOUS SISTERS IN AMERICA, GAVE COVER TO TEETERING POLITICIANS under great pressure from the Obama administration and other democrats to abandon their protection and defence of the most defenceless and vulnerable human persons among us! May God help us when it is our turn to be abandoned by the “law”!

Up to now, the courts agreed that although the states had legalized abortion, we did not have to pay for it. The Hyde amendment solidified that federal money is not used for abortion. WHEN YOU PUMP FEDERAL MONEY INTO THE ABORTION INDUSTRY, STATISTICS SHOW VERY CLEARLY THAT IT REALLY INCREASES THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS. When funding is reduced, the actual number of abortions are reduced. It is not just a philosophical point, but very practical. In the Healthcare Reform what the government is basically saying is we are going to pour billions of dollars into making sure people have (and here is the operative word) “comprehensive healthcare coverage”. In and of itself, it sounds good; we want people to have comprehensive health care coverage. The concern is if abortion is part of comprehensive healthcare coverage. To make a long story short, the courts have always said: “Yes it is!” As long as it is legal, it is part of health care. So now the concern is if this money going to be used to fund abortions. The courts have always said: “Yes it is” unless congress, who passed the law in the first place, explicitly excludes abortion. That is why the Hyde amendment was necessary in the first place. The problem is the way this bill was signed into law recently; it does not apply the Hyde amendment to the funding that is now going to go into health care coverage. We are now going to be pumping all this money into the abortion industry.

The executive order says some good things about money not going to abortion. But the problem is that an executive order cannot amend a law. A law was passed by the congress and signed by the president. But if there are legal challenges now, such as a community health care center which starts funding abortion, and it ends up in court, the court is going to say we have to follow the law which says that funding does not exclude abortion; AN EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT TRUMP THE LAW. Obama knows this and knew this! The executive order fills in some gaps in the law but it cannot overturn the law, it cannot amend the law.
The danger is if people of faith sit back and become cynical and do not consciously recognize and struggle and fight against the most modern sophisticated techniques ever used on mankind to brainwash the masses of people by way of the mass media, schools (from pre-schools to universities) and even religious institutions, and then do not participate in the election process. If our democratic process still works, if it has not yet become a dictatorship, things can always be changed for the better if people get involved. The Church always calls us to be active citizens involved in the electoral process. Anger is an energy which of itself is not an evil nor a good; it is neutral. We must not remain in just a state of agitation about the evil that is being propagated around us; we must direct our anger out in constructive ways to get things done, otherwise we direct it inward and we get depressed.

Since the mid 90’s the number of abortion (killing) clinics have been cut by more that half, principally because they cannot hold on to their staff. You get tired of killing babies for a living because it is so against our human nature which causes people to leave. THEY ARE FINDING IT HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND DOCTORS TO DO THE PROCEDURE.

Bottom Line Up Front: MUSLIMS GET A PASS on the First Amendment to the US Constitution - "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" – The ObamaCare bill is the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States. Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be "gambling", "risk-taking" and "usury" and is thus banned. (http://seanlinnane.blogspot.com/2010/04/mail-call-dhimmitude.html).

Let there be no doubt: the sole priority in this entire health care drama of THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE THREE, OBAMA, PELOSI AND REID, has been to authorize a government seizure of the American health care industry and nationalizing a full one-sixth of our economy. They ignored the cold hard facts of the federal budget. Plainly put, you cannot add $1 trillion dollars to the budget and then claim that it’s revenue neutral, cut $500 billion from Medicare and say it won’t affect recipients. The math simply doesn’t work. But Obama, Pelosi and Reid don’t seem to have any problem with fudging the numbers when it’s to their advantage, for their agenda. Worse yet, Obama, Pelosi and Reid have claimed that they would preside over the most ethical and transparent Congress in history. They have repeatedly denied Americans their Constitutional right to know what Washington is doing in their name, because they know that if they find out, they will hold them accountable, at least while our republic is still based on the democratic principles of our founding fathers.

“Do you suppose the proposed plan for the country isn't as good as the one that covers congress??? Yesterday on "ABC-TV" (better known as the all barrack channel) during the "network special on health care".... Obama was asked: "Mr. President will you and your family give up your current health care program and join the new 'universal health care program' that the rest of us will be on ?" (http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/finally-someone-asked-him-question).

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT? To serve the government or to serve the people? Does not our US constitution state: “For the people and by the people”? Or does it state: “For the government and by the government”?

Basic natural rights are not given by law. THE CREATOR ENDOWS EACH PERSON WITH INALIENABLE RIGHTS. Freedom of speech is not from the Constitution. Our rights do not come from the state but from the natural law given by God. Human beings are immortal and are offered the choice to spend eternity with their Creator, or not. The basis for rights is not from states which have come into existence and gone out of existence. People or the constitution do not give rights. We have rights because of who we are; rights are given by the Creator of all things!

Advice for Europe — And for Us
“1) INTOLERANCE IN THE NAME OF “TOLERANCE” must be named for what it is and publicly condemned. To deny religiously-informed moral argument a place in the public square is intolerant and anti-democratic. To identify the truths of biblical morality with bigotry and intolerance is a distortion of moral truth and an intolerant, uncivil act, which must be named as such. To imagine that any state…has the authority to redefine marriage, a human institution that [is prior to] the state ontologically as well as historically, is to open the door to what John Paul II called … “thinly disguised totalitarianism” – and this, too, must be said, publicly. This will require (western) Christians … to overcome what (sometimes) seems to be a deeply-engrained and internalized sense of marginalization within contemporary society.” (http://catholicexchange.com/2010/03/18/128289/).

Are we maintaining or loosing (rather quickly!) the democratic principles handed down to us by our founding fathers, many of whom died for these principles? By “stealth” the Obama administration is sneaking in FOCA. If our government would allow people to decide, then it would listen to the 86% of the American people who want to significantly restrict abortion. In our search for “COMMON GROUND” let us begin there. And by covertness there is being formed in the U.S. various groups very similar to the KGB of Russia, the Gestapo of Nazi Germany (the CIA?)…!!! “Obama Stimulus Plan - Billions for More Police”; http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2009/02/386904.shtml. Is all this money really for terrorists and to protect law abiding American citizens or is it for the Americans who differ or will disagree with the president of the U.S. when the mandates of the government really get out of hand?

“If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it's free!” -- P.J. O'Rourke.

32. Why Was Obama Elected?When a friend here in Italy asked me before the elections in November 2008 how is it possible for Americans not to know these things about Obama, I replied to him with two points. (1) It is documented how THE "MAIN STREAM" MEDIA outlets of ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN are doing everything they can to hide this incredible information about the leading candidate for the presidency of the USA. I said also that the mass media in Italy is equally controlled by those who do not want God in their lives or have totally denied His existence. (2) When people no longer pray or no longer seek to discover God’s will and NO LONGER SEEK TO DO GOD’S WILL, they quickly become blind to the truth and to reality. “What kind of “strong delusion” is this so that they “believe what is false” (2Thess 2:11)? America, as a democracy, is only as good as its people! The church in America, as in Europe, has basically become a maintenance church instead of a missionary church. It has become a church to satisfy ourselves rather than satisfy Jesus and our neighbor. One can even use prayer and devotions for our own egoism and “feeling” rather than seeking to discover and do God’s will which is inevitably linked to self-sacrifice and the cross. “The Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mt 20:28; Mk 10:45)

God the Father: “Oh, they will cover the face in order not to see, but the scales from the eyes of all will fall, and they will have the truth before themselves! Foolish and unwise children, corrupted by all the wicked cleverness of the enemy, they are like sheep at the slaughter and they do not realize it! It is not the contempt of the Sacred, it is that they do not want to know anything about “Christian Rules”! THEY PROFESS TO BE CHRISTIANS, BUT THEY ARE NOT, IF THEY CONTINUALLY TRANSGRESS THE CHRISTIAN BASICS. Hypocrites and false are all those who transgress and continue to declare themselves “true Catholics”! No, my children, the condemnation they are inflicting by themselves and there are no alternatives: either with Me, God the Father, or against Me, and thus with Satan, prince of so many corrupted souls. Do not inflict your faults on others, it was your choice, and to you is due the judgment of condemnation!” (June 8, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

You might also check out “Investigating Obama: CAREER PATH TOWARD A NEO-MARXIST PRESIDENCY (http://investigatingobama.blogspot.com/2008/10/baracks-career-path-toward-american.html). When I sent this information to my relatives and friends before the elections of 2008; a couple of my cousins ask me to not send them anymore emails! I responded to them: “I believe that if a person openly proclaims that the first thing he would do as president of the USA would be to promote and increase the incredible genocide of killing tens of millions of helpless, defenseless, innocent human beings, I believe that this person would be CAPABLE OF ANYTHING! "The first thing I'd do as president is sign the "Freedom of Choice Act" (FOCA). That's the first thing that I'd do." -- Senator Barack Obama, speaking to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, July 17, 2007 (http://www.nrlc.org/foca/index.html). America will get what America deserves!” Unfortunately, most Americans are like some of my cousins who are willing and desiring to BELIEVE ONLY WHAT THEY WANT TO BELIEVE and will not listen to anything else. Most Americans no longer take the time to examine the fruits and the concrete actions of the candidates for office. "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will know them by their fruits” (Mt 7:15-20).

But with the powerful effect of marketing techniques and well thought out slogans (“Change we need!”) and above all with the help of the very liberal and secularist mass media, most Americans were led and manipulated to see only the faults and defects of Bush and McCain so as to distract the Americans about who Obama really is and his real agenda shown in his very few years as a Senator and especially in his personal history leading up to his running for the highest office in the land. The mass media very carefully and methodically blacked out Obama’s real personal history and so many other truths that could have helped Americans decide on who to vote for in the most important position in our government. The Americans voted for a basically unknown candidate who cannot even produce a valid America birth certificate! IT IS INCREDIBLE THE POWER OF THE MASS MEDIA ESPECIALLY AND ABOVE ALL WITH THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BASICALLY PUSHED GOD OUT OF THEIR LIVES as One who is too demanding with His 10 Commandments and His statements in the Gospel such as: “He who does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it” (Mt 10:38-39).

“WHO IS HE??? - I did some of my own research after reading this. Why was his law license inactivated in 2002? Why was it held a secret all that time as he was still being called a "lawyer". Why was Michelle's law license INACTIVATED by court order? [Two peas in a pod there - and both of these things kept from the public and lies about!] There is only one Barack Hussein Obama according to the U. S. Census and he has 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases. …” (http://theuniversalseduction.com/special/who-is-he).

Is Obama aping the real Christ even in his origin? “Yet we know where this man comes from; and when the Christ appears, no one will know where he comes from” (Jn 7:27).

“OBAMA'S USE OF HIDDEN HYPNOSIS TECHNIQUES IN HIS SPEECHES”; (http://www.scribd.com/doc/7470439/Obamas-Use-of-Hidden-Hypnosis-Techniques-in-His-Speeches).
“Doctors from the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons have observed that OBAMA USES TECHNIQUES OF MIND CONTROL IN HIS SPEECHES AND CAMPAIGN SYMBOLS. For example, one speech declared, "a light will shine down from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will say to yourself, 'I have to vote for Barack.'" The doctors observe that "Obama's logo is noteworthy. It is always there, a small one in the middle of the podium, providing a point of visual fixation ... [that] resembles a crystal ball, a favorite of hypnotists." … “The Democratic party feels it necessary to keep all questions about Obama at a safe distance. It is an unprecedented move to keep secrets about a Presidential candidate. The following questions remain sealed from the public. 1. Certified Copy of original Birth certificate(see certificate controversy below); 2. Columbia College records; 3. …”; (http://rocketboom.wikia.com/wiki/Barack_Obama).
“So what does the Obama logo mean, anyway?”; (http://warofillusions.wordpress.com/2008/10/30/so-what-does-the-obama-logo-mean-anyway/).

Joseph Farah wrote in October 23, 2008, just before the election, in his article “Obama: Never a Christian”: “The most extensive comments ever offered by Obama about his faith came in a 2004 Chicago Sun-Times interview I first wrote about last May. … In other words, he [OBAMA] DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE AS TO WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.” (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?pageId=78757).

According to Mr. Webster Tarpley, in his book, “Obama, The Postmodern Coup, The Making of a Manchurian Candidate”, Obama was recruited over 25 years ago by Zbigniew Brzezinski, as a student at Columbia University, to be groomed as the president to succeed George W. Bush in 2008. In 1970, Brzezinski had recruited Jimmy Carter, the then unknown governor of Georgia, to be president in 1976, and foster the plans of the oneworlders; Obama is now his latest recruit for the completion of this plan for a world government.

Did you wonder why the SPECIAL ON OBAMA on Hannity's Sunday night show (August 9, 2009) did not appear? The program was not aired Sunday, so it was googled and found that the segments had been taken off of the internet as well. Do you wonder who blocked this???

If a person can so easily advocate the killing of an unwanted, unborn or even born human beings, what will stop him from advocating and performing the KILLING OF ANY OTHER CATEGORY OF HUMAN BEINGS if this category is later decided to be “unwanted” by this person or by the persons he puts in power over us? What is the fundamental criteria here? If there are no absolutes acknowledged and accepted from the Creator by a society or by a dictator, who decides who is to live and who is to die?!?

Caught on Tape: Obama Calls Abortion the Center of His Health Care Agenda! If you’ve seen the http://www.fightfoca.com/, you know that, as a presidential candidate, Barack Obama promised abortion advocates at a Planned Parenthood conference that the “first thing” he’d do as President was to sign the Freedom of Choice Act. Thankfully, 700,000 who signed the “Fight FOCA” petition helped convince him that was a bad idea. But did you know that, at that same conference, OBAMA SAID THAT MANDATED ABORTION COVERAGE WOULD BE AT THE “CENTER AND HEART” OF HIS HEALTH CARE AGENDA? He did, and we’ve got the tape. Even more than two years ago this agenda was already planned and decided (July 17, 2007), even though 87% of Americans (and counting) are in favor of restrictions on abortion as well as the protection of the rights of individual States, and lower authorities, to make these decisions at the proper, local levels, instead of being mandated and dictated at the federal level where the people have much less control and say (if any!?!) in these important decisions! See: http://www.realhealthcarerespectslife.com/.

There is a tremendous media bias. See “NBC Joins ABC in Refusing to Air Ad Critical of Pro-Rationing Health Care Measure” (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5405.html).

Obama, the Angel of Light! “Obama addresses Michigan high school graduation. KALAMAZOO, MICH. -- In an unusual presidential speech to high school graduates Monday night, President Obama urged students to persevere in their goals and "take responsibility not just for your successes, [but] take responsibility where you fall short as well."” (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/07/AR2010060704783.html).

“Barack Obama Campaign Organization MISLEADS on Health Care Abortion Funding” (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5377.html).
Regarding the health care bill, we find White House officials, including the President himself, resorting to a strategy of evasion and deception that is truly alarming (http://ifrl-blog.blogspot.com/2009/08/washington-feels-wrath-of-pro-life.html).

See “100 Days of Change for the Family” (OBAMA’S FIRST 100 DAYS; by his deeds, not by his words, has Obama promoted the culture of life or the culture of death?): http://www.frc.org/special/100-days-of-change.

Elections have consequences‏ (http://www.suzyb.org/blog/Elections)!

We have opened Pandora’s box with pornography, contraception, abortion, euthanasia, …. Regarding America's acceptance of abortion, the late Catholic apologist Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen said, "If we don't stop the destruction of life, we'll come to midnight. That is nuclear war, in which there will be A TOTAL DISREGARD FOR LIFE."

Some people have the vocabulary to sum things in a way you can understand. This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 29 April 2010:
“THE DANGER TO AMERICA IS NOT BARACK OBAMA BUT A CITIZENRY capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” (http://jeffersonsrebels.blogspot.com/2010/06/can-republic-survive-multitude-of-fools.html).

FROM A MINISTER'S WIFE:
We were in slow-moving traffic the other day and the car in front of us had an Obama bumper sticker on it. It read: "Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8". My husband's Bible was lying on the dash board & he got it & opened it up to the scripture & read it. He started laughing & laughing. Then he read it to me. I couldn't believe what it said. I had a good laugh, too. Psalm 109:8: "Let his days be few; and may another take his place of leadership." At last - I can voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up - it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray!

“OBAMA DISAPPOINTS EVEN LOWERED EXPECTATIONS” by Chris Stirewalt (June 28, 2010). “The second phase of the great American disillusionment with Barack Obama is complete. The president fell to Earth a year ago after his stratospheric rise because Americans came to see that he was like other politicians. But there was some solace to be taken for disenchanted voters from the fact that the largely unknown man thrust into the Oval Office by his graceful ways and an amazing concatenation of events was more or less like the other ambitious people with elastic relationships with the truth who seek high office. The fall came when Obama proved to be rankly partisan and surprisingly graceless when dealing with his opponents…” (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/Obama-disappoints-even-lowered-expectations-97174339.html).

“THOMAS SOWELL: OBAMA'S SLIPPERY SLOPE TO TYRANNY” – “When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics. Such people were a valuable addition to his political base, since they were particularly susceptible to Hitler's rhetoric and had far less basis for questioning his assumptions or his conclusions. "USEFUL IDIOTS" was the term supposedly coined by V.I. Lenin to describe similarly unthinking supporters of his dictatorship in the Soviet Union. Put differently, a democracy needs informed citizens if it is to thrive, or ultimately even survive. In our times, American democracy is being dismantled, piece by piece, before our very eyes by the current administration in Washington, and few people seem to be concerned about it….” (June 23, 2010; http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2010/06/thomas-sowell-obamas-slippery-slope-to-tyranny.html).

Wayne Allyn Root: “OBAMA'S AGENDA: OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM” – “Rahm Emanuel cynically said, "You never want a crisis to go to waste." It is now becoming clear that the crisis he was referring to is Barack Obama's presidency. OBAMA IS NO FOOL. HE IS NOT INCOMPETENT. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within. Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands….” (June 6, 2010; http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/obama-s-agenda--overwhelm-the-system-95716764.html).

33. History Repeats Itself!AFTER THE DEATH OF JOSHUA, for the first time the people of Israel were without a leader. In the beginning of the book of Judges we read that “there arose another generation after them, who DID NOT KNOW THE LORD or the work which he had done for Israel. And the people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and served the Baals...” (Judg 2:10-11). How many so-called “Christians” of the present generation in the USA and other parts of the world do not even know how to say the “Our Father”? A great number of young people who finish 12 years in the U.S. Catholic school system do not even know the 10 commandments! What are the priests and bishops doing? The divorce rate among Catholics is the same as the rest of the population of the U.S. The parents never taught their children about “the work which he [the Lord] had done for” them. Being soft hearted parents is good, but not soft headed. Parents who are soft on offering the true love (firm and loving), sometimes called “TOUGH LOVE”, of proper discipline to their children, do a very great disservice to their children who later must face the realities of life with all it’s difficulties, and an increasingly anti-God and antichristian environment. Archbishop Fulton Sheen said that the parents who let their child do as he pleases, never enjoy the love or respect of their parents. The parent is useful to the child, but where there is utility there is very little love. So often parents fall into the trap of wanting to be loved cheaply. But very often to say NO is love and to say YES is a lack of love. Many parents of the “baby boomers” naively followed the imprudent advice of Dr. Spock whose son committed suicide! Parents have gone behind the world views of so-called experts who dictate “self esteem” instead of humility. We have been bombarded to not discipline our children (“Breaking News: Spanking Can Be Bad for 3-Year-Old Children”; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/susan-kaiser-greenland/breaking-news-spanking-ca_b_541446.html).
Very often the men have wimped out and the women were not able to be both the mother and the father of their children. Men are by nature warriors (http://www.radixguys.com/). PARENTS HAVE ALL TOO OFTEN ABDICATED THEIR AUTHORITY, being weak in the knees with no backbones! Of course discretion is needed. But we must not let the pagan world dictate to us, else we go with the flow which carries all the dead bodies downstream! We must be strong and persevere in continually swimming upstream in picking up our cross daily and following our crucified Savior. Whether we like it or not, life is a DOUR COMBAT with the powers of evil (CCC 409); if we decide to not fight or if we give up fighting, Satan is happy to push and urge us downstream. Surrender is not an option! If our faith is weak, the voice of faith within us is feeble and so the voices of the secular world dominate with the temptations of lust and egoism. For parents to say, we will let our children wait until they are 21, then they can make up their own minds is absurd. By then, they have already lost their souls. We do not do this regarding learning the language of the parents, or learning how to dress and eat and so many other necessities in life. The secular humanist and gay activist are very aggressive in their proselytism! Visit “Dr. Ray Guarendi's Parenting Televison Special Packages”, at http://drraydvd.com/.

We read in the book of Sirach about King Solomon: “But you laid you loins beside women, and through your body you were brought into subjection. You put a stain upon your honor, and DEFILED YOUR POSTERITY, so that you brought wrath upon your children and they were grieved at your folly…” (Sir 48:19-20).

Men are inconsistent beings; they foresee catastrophes everywhere but a direction of “spiritual help” they do not seek! Of course when the great chastisement hits, these indifferent egotistical people will blame God, just as Gloria Polo did before the lightning bolt struck her! (http://testimony-polo.blogspot.com/).

If you say to people: “You are living in sin!”, how many listen to you? PERHAPS ONE IN FOUR HUNDRED?! How many couples “live together” today in the sin of “free sex”?! Where there is sin there cannot be peace and true love. Where sin is, there “lives together” the other “god”, the “god I”, and that god is made to measure, made for self and based on self; it is stamped by the seal of the devil. Oh, it is true that for them God cannot command them in anything, but they do not even believe in the existence of the devil and thus they are in his arms and he maneuvers their minds leading them to abominable acts. God gives Love; the devil gives death!

We must help our sheep to not follow the world with it’s immorality, backbiting, wrong behaviors. There is no longer any rules, no scruples that holds them back, they are in jeopardy, and go to meet evil without looking back to think: “BUT WHERE AM I GOING?”

As in the Old Testament, when GOD WITHDREW HIS PROTECTING HAND, other nations conquered the people of Israel. It will not be different this time either. As Sister Lucia of Fatima said to Father Agostino Fuentes, (1957): “Russia will be the scourge chosen by God to punish humanity.” Russia continues to build up and improve their nuclear arsenal as the great liars, Putin and Obama, tell the Americans that they have agreed to reduce and disarm! Of course, the gullible Americans, not in communion with their Creator, believe every smiling, promising word! See other biblical passages indicating these prophecies regarding Russia in Part III below.

How many in our modern affluent society do not even realize (or care!?) that they “do not know the Lord” or that they do what is “evil in the sight of the Lord”? How many of us do not even care that in the USA well-paid KILLERS, CALLED OBSTETRICIANS, stick a scissors into the back of the neck and into the brains of poor, innocent, defenseless, unwanted human beings struggling to defend themselves, and then suck out or pull out the rest of the body parts from their very own mothers’ womb, over a million times a year in the USA alone! It is an assault on the fundamental dignity of the human person who is created in the image of God (Gen 1:26-27)! Every human life is sacred and irreplaceable.
We worship the “Baal” of the dollar, of hedonism, of egoism, of power and of self-sufficiency while rejecting and dismissing a superfluous or annoying God.
SEVEN TIMES IN THE BOOK OF JUDGES alone the people of Israel went through the cycle of sin, suffering, supplication to God, salvation from God, and then silence about God, and then they began all over again to sin again. Read the commentary of St. John Fisher about the incredible ingratitude of the chosen people (Breviary, Friday, 3rd week, Ordinary Time). The world is about to enter into the second part of perhaps the greatest such cycle in the history of the world, “suffering” (tribulation!) which will help many to call out to God and to recognize and to repent of their sins. It is interesting that when the Israelites were tired of deciding and doing things on their own and experienced how much better it is to follow God’s chosen ones, they finally pleaded with Gideon to “rule over us, you and your son and your grandson also...” (Judg 8:22). How many Christians have also become TIRED OF BEING THE POPE and have made this same wise choice to follow God’s chosen one, the living Pope to whom Jesus promised that “the gates of hell would not prevail” (Mt 16:18)? This promise was made to Peter and to his successors, not to the bishops, and much less to the conferences of bishops or to so-called theologians who have set themselves up as a second magisterium over and against the one that Christ established!

To give a fundamental example of this great decline and abandonment of God and His commandments, consider that after the second world war many peoples (especially in the USA and Europe) experienced a rather substantial increase in wellbeing, which is certainly not an evil. THE PROBLEM WAS THAT PEOPLE QUICKLY BEGAN TO WANT AS MANY PLEASURES AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT ANY RESTRICTIONS OR RESPONSIBILITY OR CONCERN FOR OTHERS, ESPECIALLY THE WEAKEST AND MOST VULNERABLE IN OUR SOCIETY. The world, along with many so-called “Catholic” leaders and groups, began to put tremendous pressure on the Catholic Church to CONFORM TO THE MENTALITY OF THE WORLD, to conform to the “spirit of the age”, of irresponsibly seeking pleasure without any restraints indicated by God’s revelation (of love of God and neighbor) and interpreted by the Church, especially after the discovery of “the pill” (1960). King Solomon of the Old Testament did not use the wisdom he received from God; instead of bringing the world to God, he brought the women of Egypt, who worshiped false gods, to Jerusalem. “If it were not for the Catholic faith, mankind would have destroyed itself many times over”; “We do not need a Church that is moved by the world, but a Church that moves the world” – G.K. Chesterton.

Jesus: “But alas, there are always less holy vocations, and those that there are vacillate and then decide to follow the world, instead of doing in such a way that the world follows them, their teaching of the Living Gospel. Oh poor Me, constrained to beg for love and suffering to offer oneself for the salvations of souls; to ask you to do, my faithful children, that which in reality THE PRIESTS SHOULD DO!” (September 14, 2005; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

After the war and depression, many people said: “I do not want my children to have to suffer what I had to suffer.” It is normal to want to avoid suffering. But Christians follow Christ crucified in order to rise with Him after death. True love of God and neighbor always entails some kind of suffering. Saint Raymund of Penyafort wrote: “I should hope that you would not be counted among their number. Their homes are peaceful and complacent. They live in security and never feel the touch of the Lord’s rod. THEY PASS THEIR DAYS IN PLENTY AND IN THE END GO STRAIGHT TO HELL.” (Office of Readings; Jan. 7).

When Pope Paul VI issued his prophetic encyclical, “HUMANAE VITAE” (1968), there was an incredible negative reaction not only on the part of the laity who wanted to enjoy the pleasures of sex without any responsibility or openness to life by using artificial birth control, but even on the part of a great number of priests and bishops, even entire Episcopal conferences (e.g., the ‘Winnipeg Statement’ of the Canadian Bishops)! BEFORE 1930 ALL MAINLINE PROTESTANT DENOMINATIONS were in accord with the Catholic Church that the use of artificial birth control was a grave evil and a serious sin. When the Anglican Church changed its stance in 1930 (Lambeth Conference) the other protestants churches quickly followed suit while Pope Pius XI reaffirmed the Church’s constant teaching on this grave evil in his encyclical Casti Cannubii (1930). In 1968 most Mainline Protestant groups went along with Contraception; many were afraid of becoming Catholic. After Roe v. Wade, there have been 1.5 million abortions each year; many Protestant groups changed their mind and retracted, especially Southern Baptist Church.

Church discipline can be changed, but the doctrine of the faith and morals which comes from God cannot change, and will not change. THE CHURCH IS AT THE SERVICE OF THE TRUTH WHICH DOES NOT CHANGE. The Church does make progress, but cannot change the doctrines of faith and morals. The infallibility of the Pope is a negative infallibility: Christ will not let the Pope teach error. Humanae Vitae went completely against the mentality of the world, but the prophetic words written in this encyclical all came true! More than ever men see women as sex objects instead of a person to love. In the richer countries of the world there are more grandparents than babies and we wonder why there is an economic crisis?!? The vast majority of Catholics walked away from Humanae Vitae just as the vast majority of the disciples of Christ walked away from Christ regarding the announcement of the Eucharist as seen in John chapter 6! God knows better what is good for us individually and collectively and He gives us the grace to do it if we only trust Him rather than ourselves!

Less than a hundred years ago, one of the main motives that parents had more children was to provide for their future and retirement. When the state offered social security, the great majority of parents opted to avoid the sacrifice of having more children than one or two for their own pleasure and satisfaction. But the state needs children to pay for the pensions of the elderly who offered to society very few children. Thus the economy will collapse. The Church’s teachings are relevant not only on a spiritual level, but also on a very practical level! THE GOSPEL IS NOT JUST FOR SUNDAY MORNING IN CHURCH!

God is love; if we love, things go well. If we do not love, things go badly, very badly. And there is no middle ground neither here on earth or after death for all eternity! One might call the middle ground hear on earth repentance; but after repentance God calls us again to live fully the Gospel, not 75% or 95% of the Gospel that suits each one of us!

Ultimately the contraceptive mentality of recreational sex, detached from responsibility and life, quickly led even to the point of the denial of the equal dignity for a whole class of human beings and the genocide of countless millions of innocent, defenseless unborn babies (as JUST A FORM OF CONTRACEPTION!) in the place that ought to be the safest refuge in the world for our fellow human beings, their mother’s womb. Our modern pagan culture says that what is inside the womb of a mother is a “choice”, not a precious, defenseless human being made in the image and likeness of God Himself. In the U.S. alone, we slaughter more that 4000 human beings every single day inside the wombs of their mothers! THIS BRINGS DOWN SUCH DARKNESS AND HELL ON HUMANITY THAT IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE. This has everything to do with all that we are seeing today. The basic decomposition of our beloved country and the whole western world, the melt down of western civilization, is tied into this!

When the Anglican Church first approved the use of contraception in 1930 it was only for serious reasons and only for married people who have been generous for life. However, by providing an opening for contraception, the qualifying phrase “for serious reason” was quickly ignored. Subsequently the use of contraception was viewed as virtuous behavior, and even the silent holocaust of abortion has become a private ethical choice of birth control. The unborn, unwanted babies no longer have any legal protection; they are now ripped to pieces after they are brutally murdered. BABIES DO NOT CHOOSE TO DIE! Is this not a good example of the slippery slop? The former Hippocratic oath for health care workers read: “I will administer no abortafacient to a pregnant woman.” The original Hippocratic oath acknowledged that abortion was a form of doing violence not only to the child but to the woman as well.
On June 2nd, 2009, Steven Mosher was awarded the “Blessed Frederic Ozanam” award by the Society of Catholic Social Scientists. “No one is more impoverished than the child in the womb,” said Mosher upon receiving the award. “The poor may possess little, but the unborn child possesses nothing…”

As soon as we do not see life as a precious gift but only as a convenience to ourselves, OUR SOCIETY QUICKLY SINKS INTO THE CHAOS OF HELL IN THE CULTURE OF DEATH! When everything totally crashes and there is great suffering and confusion, the great majority will wander why! We are so blind to our fundamental egoism, pride, sloth and lack of charity which caused the catastrophe!

Visit: “Prophecies of Humanae Vitae” (http://pop.org/201003231196/prophecies-of-humanae-vitae).

To get a better glimpse of what is quickly developing on the world stage, let us take a look at what a great author had to say who lived through it! FEDOR DOSTOEVSKY, born in Moscow (1821 – 1881), had three great creative moments in his rather short life. THE FIRST MOMENT of his life was when he learned the meaning of freedom. He was almost executed as a young revolutionary (1849) but instead was sentenced to four years of imprisonment in Siberia. He looked death in the face, but got back that elemental freedom, the freedom to live and move and have his being.

THE SECOND CREATIVE MOMENT was when he learned the implications of that freedom. He suffered tremendously in Siberia as a veritable inferno; imprecations and curses were the responses of most of the prisoners. Out of this experience later came the books describing what he had been through: “Letters From The Underworld” and “The House Of The Dead”. HE LEARNED THREE LESSONS WHILE IN SIBERIA: 1) how evil men can be. He wrote that there are some people who will abuse freedom to a point of wishing only evil. They loose the distinction of right and wrong. They do not deny God; they challenge God! They set themselves up as an absolute. He learned that man is open at two ends: he is open to the inspiration of grace, and he is open to the devil himself. He said some of these men, both among the prisoners and the prison guards, wanted to do evil just for the sake of evil, even to make good evil. And as a result, they became cruel. “I learned that it is possible for a man to become more cruel and blood thirsty than any beast”. 2) The second lesson that he learned was about a social system that evil men can create; that social system that exists in the land where he lived. He described this social system as a wall under which men must live unto eternal frustration. 3) The third lesson that he learned was the only alternative for this social system is Christ, in whom as he rightly said, is God in the image of man. He wrote: “I thank God that I have passed through Siberia because I have learned now the essence of man, and I have also learned that it is only in Christ that I must repose.” And later on when Belinsky, the atheist, would try to win him over to his atheism, D said in his own queer way, he said to Belinsky: “I would rather be wrong with Christ than right with you!”

Prison spoils some men. It spoiled Oscar Wilde. He lost all of his creativity in prison. And he came out of prison and wandered the streets of London under a diabolical pseudonym. He lost his power of writing because he had been in prison, but not Dostoevsky who learned these lessons which he has passed on to all of us. Dostoevsky came out of prison in order to come to THE THIRD MOMENT OF HIS LIFE, the truly creative literary moment in which he wrote some of the great pages of literature such as “Crime and Punishment” (1866), “The Possessed” (1872). In these works he described communism that was to come. In “Crime and Punishment”, one of the characters, is Raskolnikov, THE INDIVIDUAL COMMUNIST, who does not believe in a distinction between right and wrong, good and bad. But he is interested in the masses; he is concerned about the poor; he wants to build up a social system; he is concerned with the proletariat. And this new social system that loves the masses must be built up, but in order to build it up says Raskolnikov, you have to have money. So he kills a poor old woman pawnbroker to get money to establish his socialistic state (like today with Planned Parenthood and abortion, lavishly supported by the Obama administration!). And he argues: “she was vermin anyway”. This is the system, you kill one, you aid a 1000 of the masses; that’s simple arithmetic. That is communism, no concern whatever for the individual person. All that matters is the party state, the totalitarian structure. And hence the individuals wherever they may be - Poland, Hungary, Albania, or anywhere else - let them be wiped out. ALL THAT MATTERS IS THE REGIME THAT PROFESSES TO LOVE THE POOR AND TRAMPLES ON THEM.

Dostoevsky, in his work, “The Possessed” uses five primary ideological characters to describe the state that has been set up by this philosophy. Through their philosophies, Dostoevsky describes the political chaos seen in 19th-Century Russia. Dostoevsky is no longer concerned now with the individual communists. You see the characters of Dostoevsky, like Verkhovensky, Shatov, Stavrogin, Stepan Trofimovich, and Kirilov. Oh yes, they are in the pages of “The Possessed”. With these men, if you cut a page, blood comes out. And they walk across the streets of Russia. THEY ARE LIVING CHARACTERS, they just have other names: Stalin, Lenin, Khrushchev, … He wrote about them; he knew them all. He lived through them; he saw it coming. Verkhovensky said the foundation of the Russian revolution would be atheism. He then talks to Stavrogin and he tells Stavrogin just how he must develop this system and Stavrogin prepares for it. And so he violates a girl, and after he has violated her, he locks her in a room. He sips tea as he observes her through a little opening in the door until she goes mad. As he enjoys his tea she finally goes mad and she hangs herself and Stavrogin says: “Now, I no longer know the distinction between right and wrong. NOW I AM READY TO ESTABLISH THE SYSTEM.” And so the characters walk out on the pages of “The Possessed”. And would you not think that some of these pages were written by someone who had passed through the experiences and communism in Russia in the last century?

Stavrogin suggests a system of spying; every member of society spies on the others. Stavrogin says: “And it is the duty of each to inform against others. All are slaves and equal in their slavery; equality, all comrades. They will be banished and put to death: Cicero will have his tongue cut out; Copernicus will have his eyes put out; Shakespeare will be stoned; slaves are bound to be equal. There has never been any freedom or equality without despotism, but in the herd, everyone will be equal. The moment you have family ties or love, you get the desire for property. We will destroy that desire. We will make use of drunkenness, slander, spying. We will make use of every incredible corruption; we will stifle every genius in his infancy; we will reduce all to a common denominator, complete equality. Only the necessary is the necessary; that’s the motto of the whole world from now on. The world needs a shock, and that’s for us, the dictators, to look after. ABSOLUTE SUBMISSION, ABSOLUTE LOSE OF INDIVIDUALITY. Once in thirty years the dictator will let them have a shock and they will suddenly begin eating one another up, just as a precaution against boredom.”

And then, Dostoevsky, knowing that this philosophy, which has no respect for persons but speaks of a love of the masses, will be a menace to the world, TELLS HOW IT WILL WIN OVER THE WORLD. He told how all the intelligentsia, the rift raft, the false liberals, all of the people without a fine distinction of right and wrong will follow after these individuals.

“And do you know - says the leader - that we are powerful already; our party not only consists of those who commit murder and arson, fire off pistols, in the traditional fashion or bite colonels; they are only a hindrance. I RECKON THEM ALL UP. A teacher who laughs with children at their God is on our side. The lawyer who defends an educated murderer because he is more cultured than his victims and could not help murdering them to get money – he is one of us. The school boys who murder a peasant for the sake of sensation, they are ours. The juries who acquit every criminal, they are ours. The prosecutor who trembles at a trial for fear he should not seem advanced enough, is ours. And among officials and intelligentsia and literary men, we have lots and lots of them, but if they do not know it… And so we will have a little fresh blood now and then, and we will set legends going, and every scurvy group will be of use to us. I’ll pick out some of you fellows that you’ll be keen for shooting. Well, there’s going to be an upheaval; there is going to be such an upset as the world has never seen before. Russia will be overwhelmed with darkness, and the whole earth will weep for its God.”

Imagine, this was written in 1872!

34. The Vicious Onslaught Against the Culture of LifeI do not know a single person who does not feel very proud that the U.S. has put it’s past of racism behind them and this election of a very likeable, attractive, young African American president is a symbol of how far we have come since “Freedom Summer” of 1964 in Mississippi; trying to get just voting rights, the ability to go to a desegregated school, and here we are.
But look at what Barack Obama has done in just his first couple of months in office:
Rescinded the "MEXICO CITY POLICY" and authorized your tax dollars to fund international groups that are promoting abortion around the world.
Begun the process of eliminating the “CONSCIENCE CLAUSE” that protects doctors and nurses from being forced to take part in the horrendous crime of abortion.
Expanded HUMAN EXPERIMANTATION by increasing federal funding of destructive embryonic stem cell research even though to this day there is no positive scientific results whatsoever using embryonic stem cells; with adult stem cells there are numerous good results!
Renewed funding with our tax dollars for UNFPA – the United Nations group that helped China carry out its "one child" policy of FORCED STERILIZATION AND FORCED ABORTIONS.
Promised to sign the “FREEDOM OF CHOICE ACT” - which, if it ever were to reach his desk, would undo every pro-life law in all fifty states even though the overwhelming majority of Americans are against this Act.
But that's far from all he's done. He's appointing RABID PRO-ABORTION EXTREMISTS to key positions in the government. The list is long and includes some of the most hard-line pro-abortion fanatics in the country.

Barack Hussein Obama is the MOST PRO-ABORTION PRESIDENT in U.S. history. In only a few months he has:
Overturned the U.S. ban on funding International Planned Parenthood Federation and the Center for Reproductive Rights, aggressive pro-abortion and ANTI-FAMILY GROUPS that are deeply involved in forcing abortion on unwilling people all over the world, especially in Latin America.
Obama’s negotiators at the UN have already made aggressive pro-abortion and ANTI-FAMILY STATEMENTS at the UN including signing a French declaration that seeks to make homosexuals a specially protected class at the expense of religious freedom.

The culture destroyers continually talk about “rights”! I never hear them talking about God’s rights!!!

“Portugal Legalizes Homosexual Marriage, Visiting Pope Condemns It” (May 20, 2010; http://www.c-fam.org/publications/id.1631/pub_detail.asp).

Obama spouts off nice sounding words that he wants to reduce abortions, or rather “reduce the number of women seeking abortion”! But ALL THAT HAS BEEN PROVEN TO REDUCE ABORTIONS, OBAMA IS ADAMANTLY AGAINST! Why are the American people so gullible? Why is it so hard to look at the facts, the deeds, the real fruits?!? They are “victims of the enemy” (2 Tim 2:24-26). See: “President Barack Obama's Pro-Abortion Record: A Pro-Life Compilation” at http://www.lifenews.com/obamaabortionrecord.html.
“I appeal to you, brethren, to take note of those who create dissensions and difficulties, in opposition to the doctrine which you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and BY FAIR AND FLATTERING WORDS THEY DECEIVE the hearts of the simple-minded” (Rom 16:17-18).

You cannot reduce the number of abortions while funding the expansion of abortion with our tax dollars by abandoning the Mexico City Policy and funding the UN Population Fund which supports forced abortion in China. See: “What is Wrong With the UN Population Fund?” by Steven W. Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/steven-w-mosher/what-is-wrong-with-the-un_b_154213.html.)

Further, Obama’s support of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), which would wipe out any law (state and federal) that protects unborn children and their mothers - such as parental consent and involvement, waiting periods, partial-birth abortion or tax funding of abortion-on-demand, force faith-based hospitals and healthcare facilities to perform abortions - leaving no room for even the tiniest compromise.

Several recent opinion polls (2009), including Gallop, indicate that the vast majority of American populace are in favor of restricting abortion at some level. Only about 23 or 25% are in favor of open abortion which is de facto what Roe v. Wade did.
Does our president seek to serve the American people and their desires or to serve some other agenda? The majority of Americans are against abortion (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5071.html).

During the last week of April 2009, HILLARY CLINTON appeared before the U.S. House of Representatives while in sworn testimony and said the following. Keep in mind, she promised all these things in her official capacity as U.S. Secretary of State!
Clinton praised Margaret Sanger, the racist and eugenicist founder of Planned Parenthood Federation. She compared Sanger to Thomas Jefferson!
Clinton praised the UN Population Fund, the UN agency that helped set up and run the Chinese one child policy which is responsible for millions of forced abortions.
Clinton said the U.S. would ratify the pro-abortion CEDAW treaty, meaning the last meaningful CEDAW holdout will now fall.
Then Hillary made a mistake by revealing their hidden agenda too openly and forthright; normally those who promote the culture of death use very nice sounding words and phrases so as not to alert or reveal their true motives while they work not in the open as indicated above. At a certain point Hillary said:
“THE FULL FORCE OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT WILL BE USED TO GET GOVERNMENTS TO CHANGE THEIR LAWS ON ABORTION ALL OVER THE WORLD.”
(www.c-fam.org)
Hillary may have revealed too much at this point according to these world planners because they try to work shrewdly so as to not awaken or alert the populous. But as more people sin and turn away from God, the powers of evil will have more and more power and so they will become more and more BOLD; soon things will begin to AVALANCHE! We will ultimately arrive to the point that the forces of evil will boldly demand that all deny God and adore the image of the Antichrist or else starve to death without the mark of the beast! Sin not only exists, but today it is rampant! If we do not follow Christ, with His help, it is very easy for the world rulers to manipulate us.
Austin Ruse, President (C-FAM/Friday Fax), wrote: “You likely know that the US has the most radical abortion laws in the world: abortion for any reason and no reason through all nine months of pregnancy. Hillary Clinton wants this for the entire world. You likely know that most of the world has abortion either against the law or heavily regulated. Radical pro-abortion feminists like Hillary Clinton cannot stand this. They hold abortion to be a kind of secular sacrament, a sacrament that everyone must worship! I know Hillary Clinton. My staff and I did battle with her throughout the 1990s when her husband occupied the Oval Office. I watched her work at Cairo+5, Beijing+5 and I can tell you first hand that Hillary Clinton is among the most radical pro-abortion advocates in the whole world. I truly fear that with Hillary Clinton as US Secretary of State and with Barack Obama as President of the United States, and with their allies at the UN, we are in for the most wicked four years in our global battle to protect the unborn child from abortion. C-FAM, publisher of the Friday Fax, is the only pro-life group working exclusively on UN social policy issues. The Friday Fax is the ONLY WEEKLY SOURCE OF PRO-LIFE AND PRO-FAMILY NEWS coming out of UN headquarters in New York.” (http://hellburns.blogspot.com/2009/04/human-rights-hillary-clinton-abortion.html).

Increased disease? More poverty? Those who oppose her "reproductive health" (read easy, unlimited and unrestricted abortion rights) programs probably are, according to Hillary Clinton. The 15th Anniversary International Conference on Population and Development was held on January 8th, and the U.S. Secretary of State was the headline speaker, asserting that America was committed to “reproductive healthcare and family planning services,” to reducing “infant, child, and maternal mortality,” and to opening the “doors of education to all citizens.” …” (http://pop.org/201001181147/on-the-anniversary-of-the-cairo-conference-clintons-rhetoric-masks-an-anti-life-agenda).

Meet the “QUEEN OF ABORTION”!
“Two weeks ago Hillary Clinton ordered Canada to include abortion in the work of the influential Group of 8… Last Christmas Hillary Clinton announced the US would spread abortion all over the world…. A year ago Hillary Clinton praised racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger…. Do you detect a pattern here?” (May 4, 2010; http://www.queencityconsultants.com/wordpress/).

It is interesting that when the Obama administration goes too far in promoting their agenda of the culture of death, THEY PULL BACK to wait for a more opportune moment in the near future when it will be LESS DETECTED. The Obama administration has officially pulled a Department of Homeland Security Report that claims pro-life people may engage in violence or extremism. The document, which has already been sent to police and sheriffs offices across the country, sparked national outrage. (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5052.html). IS OBAMA SEEKING TO SERVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE by seeking to discover what the majority of American people want, or is Obama seeking to put in place his agenda, “by stealth”, by going forward with his hidden agenda three steps and then one or two steps back incrementally???

MARGARET SANGER, who founded Planned Parenthood, had great influence and ability to sell the idea of the practice of contraception to the USA on the basis of solving marital problems, abortion and child abuse matters. Today this promotion has succeed in excluding just about all discussion of contraception in the pro-life debates on abortion. Sanger founded Planned Parenthood because she did not just want to reduce population; SHE ESPECIALLY HAD A RACIST APPROACH, that she wanted to reduce the less desirable races. Not only African-Americans and Hispanics in the USA, but also, since she lived in NY, she was concerned about too many Jews, too many eastern Europeans, too many southern Europeans. She wanted a lot of people who looked like herself. So one of the things she did was to convince African-American preachers in the early 1940’s to promote contraception in their churches so that “they would have a better economic basis” without so many kids. But she was interested in not having so many African-American kids.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD STILL HAS 60% OF THEIR ABORTION CLINICS IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN NEIGHBORHOODS. You might ask what is wrong with that? For one thing it is a sin. Secondly, even if you agree with abortion, as evil as that is, African-Americans are 12% of the population. Why are 60% of their clinics in African-American neighborhoods, unless of course they maintain the same raciest policy that goes back to Margaret Sanger; they are not interested in the Hispanic people either. Margaret Sanger had her organization, Planned Parenthood, cooperate with the Nazis in 1935 to promote eugenics.

Planned Parenthood get hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal government to promote contraception. THERE IS A FUNDAMENTAL LINK BETWEEN THIS PROMOTION OF CONTRACEPTION AND ABORTION: if you allow contraception, what you have done is isolate the marital act as giving love from giving life. People say: “Oh, I do not want to have babies, I just want to love the person who I am with.” Once you make that separation, then by accident if you get a baby, you will just kill it. Because “we just want to show love to each other.” Is this love? But that is the lingo that they try to use. To separate procreation, as having babies, and showing love, and make the two separate from each other, sets up a logic that allows any kind of behavior that you want. Planned Parenthood tells us that by promoting contraception there will be fewer abortions. But Planned Parenthood knows full well the hard facts and statistics that by promoting contraception there are more abortions because behaviors change because people feel “secure” with the condom or the pill. ABORTION IS VERY PROFITABLE FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

DOES OBAMA WANT TO GO TOWARD AND LIVE BY THE IMPORTANT PRINCIPAL OF SUBSIDIARITY OR DOES OBAMA WANT TO CREATE A GOVERNMENT AS BIG AS POSSIBLE? You can be sure that Obama’s recent healthcare compromises will have all the essentials to promote more government control and eliminate the practice of subsidiarity as much as possible, by “stealth”. Even the congressmen do not read all the fine print of these lengthy bills. I hope the American people will repent of their sins according to the criteria of God’s holy laws and not by their own self-made criteria or by the criteria of the masses or by the criteria of the mass media or by any other criteria that is not of God, the One and only Creator of all things. And then if we begin to pray, in union with our Creator, we will be able to see the real fruits of our present government and where these bureaucratic saviors of our nation are really leading us! “Thus you will know them by their fruits” (Mt 7:20). If we are not in union with our Creator, at least to a minimal degree, these power seekers and world manipulators will be able to lead us where ever they like, using beautiful words, arguments, smiles, rhetoric and whatever else! After these puppets of Satan succeed in taking full power, they will no longer have to take one or two steps back!

You might find interesting “An Open Letter To President Obama” by LOU PRITCHETT, one of corporate America 's true living legends - an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world's highest rated speakers. He wrote “An Open Letter To President Obama” in which he finished by writing: “Finally, you scare me because IF YOU SERVE A SECOND TERM I WILL PROBABLY NOT FEEL SAFE IN WRITING A SIMILAR LETTER IN 8 YEARS.” (http://god-politics.blogspot.com/2009/08/you-scare-me.html).

All dictators in the history of the world, past and present, could not tolerate freedom of speech or freedom of the press. Hitler systematically destroyed libraries museums and schools, and sent off university professors to the concentration camps where most of them died. Once these devious little dictators take full control of the U.S., there will no longer be even freedom on the internet. EVERYTHING WILL BE TOTALLY CENSURED! All transmitted information by the airwaves or computer transactions (not just in the “cookies” in your computer!) are already being gathered in order to be able to quickly identify those who must be eliminated when full control is established - those who are opposed to the regime, the New World Order. Are you on “Janet's list”?

Jesus revealed to GLORIA POLO the following (“The testimony of Gloria Polo” in the church in Caracas, Venezuela, May 5, 2005, can be found at: http://testimony-polo.blogspot.com/):
“The devil, with his malefic strategy, has brought humanity to the point of killing their own children. Now I understand the reason why I lived in continual bitterness, depression, always ill tempered, ill-mannered, with ugly ways of doing things, with a bad face, frustrated with everything and with everyone. Of course! I had transformed myself, without knowing it, into a machine to kill babies, and for this reason I was sinking ever more into the abyss. Abortion is the worst of all the sins (those provoked, not when it is spontaneous), because to kill the children still in the womb of the mother, to kill a little innocent and defenseless creature, IS TO GIVE POWER TO SATAN. The devil commands from the depths of the abyss, because we are scattering innocent blood! A baby is like an innocent lamb and without stain… And Who is the Lamb without stain? It is Jesus! In that moment, THE BABY IS THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF JESUS! The fact that it might be the mother herself to kill her own child, determines a profound bond with the darkness, permitting that more devils from hell might come out to destroy and strangle humanity. It is as if one might OPEN THE SEALS… Seals that God has put to impede evil to come out, but that, for every abortion, it opens… And so horrible larvae come out, so that there are more and more devils… They come out to chase and persecute humanity, and then make us slaves of the flesh, of sin, of all the bad things that we see, and we will see always more. It is as if we might give the key of hell to the devils, to let them escape. And so escape more devils, of prostitution, of sexual aberrations, of Satanism, of atheism, of suicide, of indifference… Of all the evils that we see around us. And the world is getting worse every day… Think how many babies are killed every day: it is all a triumph of the evil one! That you might know that for the price of this innocent blood, THE NUMBER OF DEVILS OUTSIDE OF HELL GROWS; they circulate freely in our midst! Let us take shelter! … We sin without even realizing it! And our life transforms itself into an inferno, with problems of every type, with sicknesses, with so many evils that afflict us; all of this is the pure and simple action of the devil in our life. But it is we, we alone, that open the gates of evil, with our sin, and we permit him to freely circulate in our life. It is not only with abortion that we sin! … But it is among the worst sins. And then we have the nerve to blame God for so much misery, so much disgrace, so much sicknesses and so much suffering!...”
See also the video clips: Gloria Polo's testimony 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smKKCZLiCi0); Gloria Polo's testimony 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAwgC6ednx0).

It is amazing how the proud world manipulators realize the importance of promoting abortion in order to achieve their goal of becoming world dictators!

As written above, SOON THINGS WILL BEGIN TO AVALANCHE, more and more quickly, as more evil spirits are freed from hell due to our misuse of our God-given freedom! Evil triumphs when the good do nothing! We, who know better, will be justly judged by God for all of our sins of omission, for not having used our “talents” wisely or for having “hid [our] talent in the ground … You wicked and slothful servant! … And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth” (Mt 25:25-30). So many of our founding fathers and soldiers died for our freedom that so many people around the world do not enjoy. So many “slothful” Americans trod under foot the blood of those who paid the price of our freedom. As the Mother of God said at Akita, Japan in 1973, “The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead.”

While Obama’s administration is gearing up to make a frightening new global attack on the unborn child, Obama continues to VEIL HIS TRUE INTENTIONS by craftily telling us before and after the election that he is advocating abortion reduction with enhanced economic and social support, especially for poor, uninsured and often unemployed women. In addition, the president advocates stronger families and teenage responsibility!?! But how does this come about without Gospel principles or without the help of God by way of following God’s commandments? All the policies which have been proven to build up the family, reduce divorces and reduce abortions have been always (100%) voted against by Obama before and after his election.

“GLOBAL "SAFE ABORTION" CONFERENCE RISKS WOMEN'S LIVES”
“The 800 conference participants, culled from the world's major abortion advocacy groups, crafted and signed the "Global Call to Action for Women’s Access to Safe Abortion" demanding that women everywhere "have full access to legal, voluntary, safe, and affordable abortions as part of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care." The Call to Action also demanded that governments reform their laws and policies "at all levels" to ensure "rights to contraception and safe abortion," and that medical schools provide "physicians, nurses, midwives, and other healthcare workers" with abortion training.” (June 18, 2010; http://www.c-fam.org/publications/id.1243/pub_detail.asp).

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE CONTRAST is this outrageous promotion of the culture of death to the promotion of the saints that the Catholic Church holds out to us for our edification and example such as SAINT MARIA GORETTI who chose to die (1902) rather than give in to the boy who wanted to have sex with her outside of marriage! “The Kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and men of violence take it by force” (Mt 11:12). Maria, before dying, forgave her assailant, Alessandro Serenelli, as did also Maria’s holy mother, Assunta, who later took Alessandro into her home. A saint begot a saint! What a different world we would have if only more parents would live their lives as Assunta did! Alessandro, from the beginning was defiant and without remorse, maintaining that Maria was ultimately to blame for what happened. In desperation behind bars (1910; Noto, Sicily), he received an unexpected visitor to his cell in a dream: it was Maria. Alessandro later said that this grace “gave me a powerful push to my betterment in my spirit.” Maria gave him 14 glowing white lilies for each time he stabbed her. At that point Alessandro began his moment of conversion with God, and he finds himself, and was finally able to admit that all the responsibility of what happened was his. He was released several years early from prison due to good conduct (1929) which he attributes to Maria. Alessandro, as he lay dying, with a picture of his victim that he kept next to him, he scribbled out a note. It is a plea for mercy but also a note of warning to the world: “I ask pardon of the world of the outrage done to the martyr Maria Goretti and to purity. I exhort everyone to keep away from immoral shows, from dangers, from occasions that can lead to sin.” According to the Capuchin Fathers, who gave the last rights to Alessandro and were with him those final hours, he said: “I have suffered enormously for killing a saint. But now I have paid my debt. I have found hope and light. I have found redemption and now I will again be with little Maria in heaven.” Alessandro died (1970) at the age 88; he was buried in the Capuchin cemetery where he lived the last years of his life, after the death of Assunta, with aged and infirmed religious.

“NEW STUDY FINDS ABSTINENCE EDUCATION EFFECTIVE, COMPREHENSIVE SEX-ED FLOPS” (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5950.html).

Regarding THE TRUTH IN CATHOLIC TEACHING, Stephen Mosher (Population Research Institute; www.pop.org) stated: “I would like to reflect as a convert and a social scientist on the truth of Catholic teaching. Now we all know that the Church has the fullness of truth on matters of faith and morals. But I have been struck by the fact that its teachings are also correct on an economic, on a sociological level also, on all the possible levels of truth seeking. Take for example the question of whether children are blessings or burdens. The Church, quoting the Bible, tells us that CHILDREN ARE BLESSINGS FROM GOD, made in the image of God and of infinite worth. The world however uses a different calculus. The world says that it costs $200,000 to raise a baby from infancy to adulthood, and so sees children as a burden on families, on societies and indeed on the planet. Who is correct? Well if you just crunch the numbers you will see that the average child born in the U.S. will contribute over his or her lifetime about two thirds of a million dollars more to the economy than they will consume. That is to say from an economic point of view they are definitely blessings and not burdens. They are blessings to their family, to their society and to the larger economy as well. This is just one example of how the Catholic faith is true on all levels.”

The first four nominated ambassadors to the state of the Vatican in Rome by Obama were all pro-abortion; the Vatican refused all four.

Read: “BILL DONOHUE ON ‘SECULAR SABOTAGE’ IN AMERICA”. The first chapter, Revenge of the Nihilists, identifies the groups he views as the chief enemies of Judeo-Christian civilization, and they are principally militant secularists, nihilists, and relativists, and particularly scoffers at all religious beliefs, such as best-selling God-deniers Sam Harris, Peter Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, T.V. scoffer Bill Maher, New York Times editorialist Frank Rich and Hustler publisher Larry Flint. (http://thebulletin.us/articles/2009/09/13/arts_culture/doc4aad3f85170a5235181257.txt).

These secularists, nihilists, and relativists, have USED FOR THEIR OWN PURPOSES DARWIN'S FALSE THEORY OF EVOLUTION. Karl Marx wrote (January 16, 1861): “Darwin's work is most important and SUITS MY PURPOSE in that it provides a basis in natural science for the historical class struggle. One does, of course, have to put up with the clumsy English style of argument. Despite all its shortcomings, it is here that, for the first time, 'teleology' in natural science is not only dealt a mortal blow but its rational meaning is empirically explained.” (http://theworldsocialist.blogspot.com/2009/03/marx-and-engels-on-origin-of-species.html). Karl Marx read the Origin of Species in 1860 and wrote that Darwin's book was very important and served him as a basis in natural science for the struggle in history. (http://www.quodlibet.net/articles/johnson-evolution.shtml).

The theories of both Lamarck and Darwin were used not only to explain the origin of species in general, but of man in particular; in fact the only use that a number of so-called scientists saw in either of the theories was to afford proof that man was not specially created, but evolved from a BRUTE BEAST. As there was no real proof, recourse was had to fraud. (http://www.tanbooks.com/doct/science_today.htm).

“Top Ten Scientific Facts Proving Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution is Wrong, False, and Impossible”; (http://www.biblelife.org/evolution.htm).

WHO DIDN’T GET THE MEMO?
“Two to three billion years was available for randomness to do its work. Given so much time the seemingly impossible becomes the possible, the possible probable and the probable virtually certain. One had only to wait. Time itself and the random reactions able to occur within those eons of time performs the miracles." So wrote George Wald, professor of biology at Harvard University and Nobel laureate. The article appeared in the August 1954 issue of Scientific American, the most widely read science journal worldwide, the Broadway of scientific literature. This speculation over life's origins has within it an important lesson: not to confuse accepted wisdom with revealed fact. In the mid-1970s came the seminal discovery of Elso Barghoorn. He, like Wald, was at Harvard. Barghoorn assumed correctly that the first forms of life would be small, microbial in size. Using a scanning electron microscope, a tool able to identify minute shapes imperceptible to microscopes that probe images with visible light, Barghoorn searched the surfaces of polished slabs of stone taken from the oldest of rocks able to bear fossils. To the amazement of the scientific community, fossils of fully developed bacteria were found in rocks 3.6 billion years old. Further evidence based on fractionation between the light and heavy isotopes of carbon, a fractionation found in living organisms, indicated the origins of cellular life at close to 3,.8 billion years before the present, the same period in which liquid water first formed on Earth. OVERNIGHT, THE FANTASY of billions of years of random reactions in warm little ponds brimming with fecund chemicals leading to life, EVAPORATED.

35. The Truth Or Not The Truth; That Is The Question!The Catholic Church has always taught that THE “ENDS” DO NOT JUSTIFY THE “MEANS”. In other words, one cannot justify or rationalize committing even one single sin, especially a grave, intrinsically evil sin such as abortion, in order to arrive at a “good end” or a “greater good”. This would be the same as telling God to BUTT OUT while we commit a horrendous crime so that we can achieve a greater good, according to our “wise” human criteria and judgment, as if God is not able to bring about good without our sin! As Pope Benedict XVI clearly teaches, WAR AND CAPITAL PUNISHMENT ARE NEGOTIABLE, but abortion and euthanasia are not! The Church has always taught that there is a hierarchy of values and truths; many false Catholics try to convince us that all values are equal, like a “seamless garment”, so as to justify committing the greater, and intrinsic evil. “I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes” (Mt 11:25)!

Those who are not right with God, or as we say as Catholics not “in the state of grace”, will believe every word these world planners say (2Thess 2:11-12), especially by way of the media, and even end up adoring the image of the first beast, the Antichrist (Rev 13,11-18). Nero put the blame on the CHRISTIANS for burning Rome, and most people were GULLIBLE enough to believe his lie. Things have not changed much today! Many people fall prey to SO-CALLED “Catholic” (in name only!) politicians, “Catholic” publications and “Catholic” Universities who offer themselves as a substitute or new Magisterium of the Catholic Church, convincing many people that you can get rid of the cross of Christ and still feel holy and saved as a “Catholic” or Christian! “As we have said before, so now I say again, if any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed” (Gal 1:9).

My cousin wrote to me before the November 2008 elections and told me that “the effects of the church’s narrow anti-abortion efforts” are hurting the pro-life cause and that “I happen to believe we need to come to people in love not with threats.” This cousin referred me to an article by the National Catholic Reporter: “Bishops narrow anti-abortion effort hurts pro-life cause”!!! But the 40 to 50 million babies that we have slaughtered in the USA since 1973, do we come to them “IN LOVE”??? Do the ends justify the means as the above article indicates??? Are there no "hierarchy of values"??? Has “ABORTION” become only something “political” or something without any reference to what abortion actually is? Have we become so callused and cold in spirit and estranged from reality and LIFE that it is OK to kill millions of babies in the name of the “pro-life cause”!?*!? What kind of “strong delusion” is this so that they “believe what is false” (2Thess 2:11)?

So many desire to convince themselves that they are Christians but it is really only sentimentality and superficiality without the cross of Christ in sacrificing ourselves for others, especially those that require us to suffer including an unexpected pregnancy, an old person who is not autonomous, a difficult person, an enemy, ... Jesus commanded us to love ALL! “For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? ... (Mt 5:43-48; Lk 6:27-38). See “The Hope of the World!” at http://trueevangelization.blogspot.com. “For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but WE PREACH CHRIST CRUCIFIED, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles...” (1Cor 1:22-23). We do not follow BUDDHA ON A NICE COMFORTABLE SATIN PILLOW! And yet we want our Christian religion to be only a consolation to us without letting anyone tell us what our religion commands of us.

These pseudo Christians tell us only the one side of the truth that Christ forgave sinners such as the prostitute, but they do not ever mention that Christ also said to the prostitute: “GO AND SIN NO MORE” (Jn 8:11)! Jesus, as should all Christians, loves the sinner but hates the sin. The liberals refuse to make this distinction so as to justify their condemnation and growing persecution of true Christians who LOVE the people who have a tendency toward homosexuality but HATE the ACT of homosexuality. But how can Godless people believe in sin if, according to them, God does not exist? These so-called “HATE CRIMES” will soon be the driving force to destroy the family, marriage and deprive us of our religious freedom supposedly guaranteed in the first amendment.

True Christians love those who have the temptation to fornicate but hate the ACT of fornication! Even liberals are forced to declare that they hate the ACT of homicide while they “claim” to love their fellow brothers and sisters. If one does not love “the least of these my brethren” (Mt 25:40) their “claim” to love others is really masked egoism! It is cynical, base hypocrisy! They do not even live the most basic precept of every mainline religion: “love your neighbor as yourself” (Lv 19:18; Mt 19:19; Jn 13:34). Our modern culture enhances individualism and egoism!

Some organizations describe Pro-lifers as domestic terrorists. But it is the most peaceful human rights organization that there is. The pregnancy care centers outnumber abortion clinics three to one. The pro-life movement puts it’s money and it’s volunteer hours where it’s mouth is. This has resulted in many pro-choice women to change their mind when they discovered this truth. THE MEANING OF “LOVE” for the pro-choice people is “I want well FOR ME!” The meaning of “love” for the pro-life people is “I want well FOR YOU!” Pro-choice is misguided compassion, an excuse to kill the baby.

Forty-five states have HATE CRIMES LEGISLATION on their books and now Congress is poised to add gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgendered people to the list of federally protected classes. Pastors will soon be prosecuted for even reading in church the parts of the Bible (or rather all of the Bible!) that indicate that THE ACT OF HOMOSEXUALITY IS A SIN as has already happened in Canada and other countries!

The National Organization for Women (NOW) and Planned Parenthood want you to believe that women have abortions to have their freedom of choice. But we know by listening to women who have had abortions, women do not have abortions because of freedom of choice; women have abortions because they have no choice. They feel trapped! But do the “Pro-Choice” people help them to have a choice? The “Pro-Life” movement does help these abandoned women to freely make their choice while offering a real helping hand! “Choice Kills” (http://www.choicekills.com/).

Abortion, the most common surgery in America; why don’t we ever see what it looks like? Not until people saw images of children in coal mines did they enact child labor laws. Not until people saw images of human torture did they rise up against slavery. America will never reject abortion, unless America sees abortion. See “Looking Abortion in the Eye” at http://www.priestsforlife.org/images/index.aspx.

In his famous letter from a Birmingham jail, DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, Jr. wrote: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Let us interpret this phrase fully: "Injustice (killing defenseless, unwanted babies) anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Who of us will be in the “defenseless, unwanted” category in the future?

THE NIECE of Dr. Martin Luther King follows courageously the steps of her uncle! “DR. ALVEDA KING: Abortion Has Been Devastating for More African Americans than Slavery” (March 2, 2010; http://www.catholic.org/national/national_story.php?id=35643).
“New 'FREEDOM RIDE' targets culture of abortion Alveda King working for recognition of civil rights of unborn” (http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=178493).
“Pro-Life Freedom Rides Begin in Birmingham, July 23” (http://www.priestsforlife.org/action/pro-life-freedom-rides.htm).

Many people say that they cannot impose their beliefs on anther person. This reminds me of a bumper sticker: “If you don’t like abortion, don’t have one”. But we could hardly imagine on the back of a stage couch a bumper sticker: “IF YOU DON’T LIKE SLAVERY, DON’T OWN ONE!” No one would think that would be a reasonable thing to say.

A hunter does not shoot into a bush is he feels there might be a possibility that there is a person behind the bush. If he kills a human being, he is held liable. But so many have A STRONG REASONABLE DOUBT that there is human life from the point of conception!

Many have an abortion so as not to interrupt college or tennis (Billie Jean King), but then accept a baby if it comes at the right time. But here we are entering into the realm of economics called valorization. A thing is valuable not in itself but according to the number of people who want it. Pope John Paul II wrote a lot about how our culture has fallen into THE INSTRUMENTALIZATION OF HUMAN BEINGS.

All human life has value. Abortion hurts women. Women will never reach equality riding on the backs of their dead babies. Adoption: it’s a choice that you and your baby can live with!

ABORTION CANNOT BE MADE LIGHT OF; IT CANNOT BE OVER LOOKED. Facing the truth about abortion leads us to freedom. Dr. Theresa Burke, the Founder, Rachel's Vineyard Ministries, writes: “If the emotional and spiritual wounds of a past abortion have been sapping faith, love and joy from your life, I can promise, that if you enter this process for healing, your life will begin to change. …” (http://www.rachelsvineyard.org/).

The American Holocaust: the face of “Choice”! Have you hugged your “Choice” today? Do we not see the absurdity of the “Pro-Choice” slogan?
Christians: The blood of CHRIST paid for your sins. The blood of PATRIOTS paid for your freedom. The blood of THE UNBORN is paying for your silence.
Abortion is everyone’s sin. The greatest human rights movement of our times is the PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT! Each one of us will all be judged on this issue by God. Let us build a culture of life!
Love says I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person; abortion says I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself. It is the opposite of love; that is why we conquer abortion by love.
People say that I am personally opposed to abortion but I HAVE NO RIGHT TO INTERFERE WITH OTHERS REGARDING ABORTION. But Jesus teaches us that every person is my brother, indeed, Jesus identifies Himself with each person, especially with “the least of these my brethren”: “You did it to Me!” (Mt 25:40). Thus the mother is my sister, but the baby inside the womb of the mother, the least of the two, is equally my brother!
“Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.” – Mother Teresa.
“We cannot fight credibly against other social moral evils, including poverty and violence while we tolerate mass killings by Abortion” - Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
“For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Ps 139:13).
“Scientists Say Newborn Babies Cry in Native Language, Learned in the Womb”; (http://www.lifenews.com/int1374.html).

The baby in the womb is not a potential human being, but a human being with potential!

May all politicians and all “Catholics” know that you cannot be Catholic and pro-choice!

36. The Great Attack Against the Family!This “COSMIC STRUGGLE”, between the forces of good and the forces of evil, is growing quickly everyday. These two factions are mutually exclusive. What will happen as same sex unions are increasingly assimilated to marriage or something like marriage... what happens when the rights created by those decisions come up against the conscience rights of people that want to maintain the religious identity of their religious organizations in their hiring and firing? There are very serious conflicts here.
THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE (Jn 8:32)!

So many politicians and UN officials, who promote the “Culture of Death”, USE NICE SOUNDING WORDS AND PHRASES like “freedom of choice”, “women’s productive rights” (code word for contraception and abortion!), “there must be protection for both the life and health of the mother”, “universal access to reproductive health”, “sexual and reproductive health and rights”, “family planning and reproductive health” programs to “combat” poverty in “least developed countries”!” They say they want to combat poverty in least developed countries, but when these egotistical activists are confronted with the reality that their programs and policies cause the women in China and so many other countries to kill the babies that they want to keep, as well as causing so many women to being used and sold as slaves for profit and for the pleasure of egotistical men, they are forced to admit this truth, but they stubbornly continue their death policies by taking refuge in the false myth of overpopulation. MANY EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, INCLUDING RUSSIA, ARE OFFERING MONEY TO ENCOURAGE FAMILIES TO HAVE BABIES; THEIR ECONOMIES ARE RATHER QUICKLY DYING. Perhaps for the first time in history, at least in the richer countries of the world, there are more grandparents than babies. Even though widely rejected in 1968, the encyclical “Humanae Vitae” was prophetic. The youth are beginning to wake up to the truth, but already the foundation of destruction has been laid by their parents. The U.S. is actually becoming more and more pro life, if for no other reason than the fact that pro lifers consider babies as a blessing from God and thus have more babies; these babies generally continue to live the values of their parents! There is a pro life increase each year of about one to two percent because people in the pro choice camp have very few babies!

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF THE UNWANTED, UNBORN BABIES? Were we not all, at one time, an embryo? Were we not all, at one time, a fetus? Is it not by now well proven that overpopulation is a myth to keep the rich rich and the strong strong at the expense (life?) of the weak, vulnerable and defenseless (http://www.overpopulationisamyth.com/)? Are not the vast majority of the countries in the world today dying demographically and are unable to support those no longer working. “The Overpopulation-Population Control Movement Struggles to Stay Relevant”; (http://www.lifenews.com/int1384.html).

How many human rights abuses are committed in the name of "family planning," which are counter-productive social and economic paradigms premised on the myth of “overpopulation” (www.pop.org)? Europe is quickly dying and can no longer support the retired people who promoted and bought into this lie of overpopulation. Does not the Gospel teach us that the strong should help the weak? Was not the motto of Mother Teresa, as she cared for and loved the dying on the streets of Calcutta, “You did it to Me” (Mt 25:40), that is to Jesus! Jesus considers every abortion as if Jesus Himself is aborted, because Jesus identifies Himself especially with the weakest and most helpless; “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me” (Mt 25:40)! Jesus truly hides behind the weakest, the defenseless, to old, the sick, the emarginated ones, … and each of us will be judged according to how we loved JESUS in each of the “least of these my brethren”! The Patroness of unborn children (and of the Americas) is OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE (Mexico, 1531) in whose miraculous image she appears pregnant with Jesus!

THE MORE MONEY AND POWER THE PROMOTERS OF THE CULTURE OF DEATH ACQUIRE DUE TO OUR SINS AND LACK OF PRAYER, THE MORE QUICKLY THEY SUCCEED IN ENTICING OTHERS TO FOLLOW THEIR PATH OF DESTRUCTION! An interesting example of their machinations and manipulations was in 1999 in New York City at the United Nations. At a conference on Population and Development, thirty two young people were brought into the negotiations and given the floor. They stated that they represented all three billion of the world’s youth, and demanded the following: abortion as a human right, sexual rights for children, and a deletion of parents’ rights. That was all they had to say. The context of this was that these youth were brought in by various western delegations. The year 1999 was the end of the Clinton years, and the achievement of abortion as a human right was one of the pillars of the Clinton’s foreign policy objectives. They had been promoting this as a national policy throughout the 90’s without the successful affirmation from many countries around the world. And so they brought in these young people to sort of say: “We understand that these are radical ideas, but it is on behalf of the world’s youth; you have to listen to the youth in moving forward with what we want. This is what the new generation wants.” AT A CONFERENCE CONVENED TO DISCUSS THE NEEDS OF THE WORLD’S PEOPLE, BASIC NEEDS INCLUDING ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER, SANITATION, EDUCATION, NUTRITION, HEALTH CARE, AND EMPLOYMENT WERE NOT EVEN ADDRESSED. Were these people in control of the assembly really interested in the well being of the people of the countries of the world and what their representatives had to say?

As a reaction of conscience, Anna Halpine, an observer at the UN, and a few others went back into the assembly the next morning and distributed bright pink flyers which stated that they were not represented among these “three billion youth” and in fact there were many other young people around the world who had a very different vision for how society should be constructed. These young people who were given the floor yesterday did not represent all the youth of the world. She called for a discussion on topics addressing basic human rights and necessities. What these courageous youth for life did was against all the rules and caused pandemonium because there was not expected another youth voice to represent the other youth in the world with very different views. The thirty two young people brought into the negotiations that were given the floor were paid a lot to be there; their flights were paid for; they had $500/day spending money; they had their proposals drafted for them by the various western states. SO THIS WAS NOT AT ALL AN AUTHENTIC GRASSROOTS EXPRESSION. Anna Halpine and her friends were this terrible fly in the wheel that came out of no where and really changed all of the results. Negotiations were stalled for two hours.

But what did happen was that MANY COUNTRIES, MOST OF THEM DEVELOPING, MANY OF THEM POOR AND LESS POWERFUL, CAME UP TO ANNA HALPINE AND HER FRIENDS AND SAID “THANK YOU! Thank you for being here, for saying these things! You need to have a full time presence at these institutions.” And they also said please come to our countries and work with our young people. The world so desperately needs more people like Anna willing to stand up and take the risk of speaking out for the culture of life which leads to true well being as individuals and as the societies as a whole. “Evil triumphs when the good do nothing!” Read more about the “WORLD YOUTH ALLIANCE” at: http://www.wya.net/.

With more and more people swallowing the lies of the sexual revolution broadcasted in every corner of the earth with our modern technology of communications, one can imagine today how much more the promoters of the culture of death are more than ever forcing their agenda and coercing and manipulating the poor third world countries, and all countries, using even more powerful and sophisticated means of advancing their intended goals! WE ARE QUICKLY APPROACHING A MORAL AVALANCHE!

Contrast this hideous and egotistical attitude with that of the saints like Mother Teresa of Calcutta who served Jesus in the dying streets of Calcutta! We read about Saint Camillus of Lellis in regards to the sick: “”Indeed, even when ministering to just one sick man, he seemed to burn himself up and wear himself out with the utmost devotion and compassion. Gladly would he have taken upon himself all their sickness and suffering to alleviate their pain or take away their weakness. So vividly did he picture and honor the person of Christ in them that often when distributing food to them he thought of them as his “Christs”, and would beg of them grace and the remission of sins. Hence he was as reverent before them as if he were really and truly in the presence of his Lord.” (Office of Readings; July 14).

“You did it to me” (Mt 25:40)! Would we not all like to be treated as Saint Camillus treats the sick? Do these great atheistic humanitarians and saviors of humanity love their neighbor as themselves?

Perhaps we might consider the fact that the SECOND PERSON of the BLESSED TRINITY in His infinite wisdom, Who could have come into the world in anyway whatsoever, chose to become incarnate in the womb of a human woman and spend NINE FULL MONTHS IN HER WOMB!?! Christ sanctified everything He did! You might say that Jesus showed us the preciousness of life in the womb by patiently spending nine months in the womb of His mother Mary! St. John the Baptist, as a six-month fetus in the womb of his mother Elizabeth, leaped for joy in the womb of Elizabeth when he recognized Jesus as a very small embryo in the womb of Mary (Lk 1:44)! Little boys and little girls leap for joy in their mothers wombs, not abstract fetal tissue. You might check out the book: "Redeemer in the Womb: Jesus living in Mary" by John Saward. This book is a unique and profound theological meditation on the nine months the God-man spent in His Virgin Mother's womb. Drawing on Christian philosophy, poetry, liturgy, as well as the Fathers and great theologians of the Church, Saward shows that FAITH IN THE INCARNATION COMMITS THE BELIEVER INESCAPABLY TO THE DEFENSE OF THE UNBORN CHILD.

God is not a disinterested spectator in the affairs of man. The Catholic Church holds that a single abortion is homicide. What are 50 million of them since Roe v. Wade? What is the DEFINITION OF GENOCIDE? What is the targeted group? Unwanted, unborn children! It does not have to be an ethnic group, or a religious group, or a national group; it is a homogeneous group: unwanted, unborn children!

The people of the world, with the help of the media, are saying suffering is useless, let us help you die. We will help kill you (EUTHANASIA)! They always use nice sounding words: “Death with dignity!” Do they think they are God? Jesus refused a drug on the cross to diminish his pain (Mt 27:34, 48; Mk 15:36; Lk 23:36; Jn 19:29). It is OK to kill old people if they do not fit into our regiment. That is their answer; they befriend death. But we befriend the One who conquered death, Jesus crucified and risen. That marks the absolute difference between us.

ARCHBISHOP FULTON SHEEN once said: “The truth is the truth even if no one believes it; error is error even if everyone believes it!”

How would you like to be DISCARDED? How cynical and unmanly it is for men to use women for their carnal desires and pleasures and then to discard and abandon them as well as the children that they often leave in the wombs of the women they have exploited. The great majority of the women who ended up aborting their child would not have done so if their boyfriend or husband would have lived up to true and real manhood and said: “I am here with you; I will not abandon you!” These abandoned women had no where to turn for help and so ended up in the hands of the butcher shops of the legal assassins of defenseless unwanted babies. ALL MEN ARE CALLED TO GREATNESS!?!

MANY HUSBANDS LEAVE THEIR FAMILIES AND THEY DO NOT REALIZE THE ETERNAL RAMIFICATIONS OF THEIR DECISIONS. Someone wrote: “If a man seeks to find meaning while refusing to belong to his family, he will find nothing more than the transient distractions to stimulate and occupy him for the present moment until his thoughts bring him back to the emptiness of his rootless situation. … When the heart of the rootless man (so many rootless men trade in the eternal for the temporal) tries to make a nest in the desperate vacuity of his whirlwind life and predictably fails, he will only redouble the search for temporary distractions until his life becomes a fleeing from, not a movement towards, reality.” How many politicians trade the lives of unborn babies for two more years in office? Solomon, the son of king David of the Old Testament, tried just about everything: botany, flowers, architecture, history, and never found peace because he abandoned the one true God!

At the end of the day when we talk about men’s leadership, especially in the home, Saint Paul tells us in Ephesians (5:25-27) that husbands are to love their wives as Christ loved his Church and delivered Himself up for her so that she may be without spot or blemish or any such thing. ULTIMATELY WHAT HUSBANDS HAVE IS THE AUTHORITY TO LAY DOWN THEIR LIVES FOR THEIR WIVES. And in doing that, that somehow changes the bride. Consider the moment when Christ laid His life down for His bride, the Church. It was the moment when she was least worthy of that sacrifice: one of His apostles, Judas, betrayed him; the head, Peter, denied Him three times; all the other apostles fled with the exception of John. So Christ specifically lays down His life when the bride is least worthy. Somehow it is Him laying down His life that that is what makes the bride without spot or blemish or any such thing. How many husbands, at the end of the day, are willing to pay the price like Christ, which means that they lay their lives down for their brides, independent of their worthiness? (http://www.paradisusdei.org/tmiy/).

37. The Astounding Impact of the Ruthless Manipulation of Militant Gay Activists!Our day and time is experiencing an unprecedented assault on marriage and family. State after state is succumbing to the push of militants to legalize any union of two or possibly more people and call it marriage, claiming that it is a matter of justice and rights and using anti discriminatory laws to promote their agenda. They seek to advance their world view and are using every social institution to do so.

Over a hundred years ago the homosexual act was considered Sodomy and it was identified as an act. It still is Sodomy. IT WAS REFERRED TO AS THE HOMOSEXUAL ACT. BUT IN THE 1960’S IT WAS THEN CONDITIONED. The condition of homosexuality was redefined as a condition rather than an act. It did not change, it was just redefined. What really happened here was while you can criticize an act and you can even say it is a criminal act, how do you criticize a condition that someone suffers with? How can you criticize the act that one commits who has this regrettable condition! “Can’t you be more compassionate?!?” AND THEN FROM THE CONDITION WE NOW HAVE AN IDENTITY.

And the identity is now equated to Hispanic or Polish or short or thin… And how can you attack my identity? This identity is equated by Gay activists, whereas the majority of Americans reject this totally. It is a marketing progression. It is definitely a manipulation, an abuse of the public who are dependent upon science, educators, politicians, policy makers, the AMA, the APA, etc; we are all dependent as a community and as a society and as a culture on these different disciplines. So if education has not been properly handled, if science and public policy have not been properly handled, then we end up not only being manipulated but we have been lied to; WE HAVE BEEN LITERALLY DEFRAUDED.

The attack on the Christian church is not coincidental. THEY HAVE A PRODUCT TO SELL: IT IS CALLED HOMOSEXUALITY. Years ago, their insidious agenda was not selling through normal channels. So in February 1988, some 175 leading activists representing homosexual groups from across the nation held a WAR CONFERENCE in Warrenton, Virginia, to map out their movement’s future. Shortly thereafter, activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen put into book form the comprehensive public relations plan they had been advocating with their gay-rights peers for several years.

Kirk and Madsen were not the kind of drooling activists that would burst into churches and throw condoms in the air. They were smart guys – very smart. Kirk, a Harvard-educated researcher in neuropsychiatry, worked with the Johns Hopkins Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth and designed aptitude tests for adults with 200+ IQs. Madsen, with a doctorate in politics from Harvard, was an expert on public persuasion tactics and social marketing. Together they wrote "AFTER THE BALL (1989): How America Will Conquer It’s Fear and Hatred of Gays in the '90s", in which they outlined very carefully the way in which they were going to manipulate the way in which Americans think about this issue!

What was THE BOTTOM LINE of Kirk and Madsen's master plan? "The campaign we outline in this book, though complex, depends centrally upon a program of unabashed propaganda, firmly grounded in long-established principles of psychology and advertising." (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?pageId=32898).

Kirk and Madsen's "war goal," explains marketing expert PAUL E. RONDEAU of Regent University, was to "force acceptance of homosexual culture into the mainstream, to silence opposition, and ultimately to convert American society." Visit: “Selling Homosexuality To America”, by Paul E. Rondeau, at http://theshepherdsvoice.org/politics/selling_homosexuality_to_america.pdf.

The use of marketing techniques to sell goods is nothing new, and the art of persuasion to do the same is ancient. However the use of marketing techniques based on psychological processes and the use of new technology to hoist and thrust ideologies, political agendas, world views, morals and ethics upon an unsuspecting public is SOMETHING QUITE NEW INDEED. And yet this is what has happened and is happening right now. A systematic use of these highly sophisticated marketing techniques has been employed by major institutions, pundits, politicians and the media elite to usher in a new world view devoid of the Judeo-Christian ethos.

Everybody wants to do the right thing… So the idea of using psychographics and marketing research is to FIND A WAY TO MAKE YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING. “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.” You want to lead the horse to water, which is called “prepping the environment”, and along the way make him thirsty so that he drinks himself. In the broad picture, there is something called “agenda setting theory”.

THE PROBLEM WE HAVE TODAY IS THAT IT IS NOT ABOUT TRUTH, IT IS ABOUT POWER. AND THIS COMES BY WAY OF THE MANIPULATION OF LANGUAGE AND THE USE OF PSYCHOLOGY. A method called “cognitive dissonance” is used, employing forced compliance. They have found that if they force people to comply with their ideology at just the right level, like in school, being made to feel uncomfortable 8 or 6 hours a day, people begin to substitute things in their mind to get back to that comfortable state. They begin believing those messages that they never listened to but have an impact on them. People are thus converted like the frog in the pot in cold water; if the frog is dumped in hot water, he jumps out; but if the cold water is warmed up slowly, he will sit there until he cooks. This is the ultimate goal: conversion of the mind. People are not only converted but they forgot what they used to believe. Our culture is cooked! You have what you believe on one side, and you have the environment of forced compliance on the other side, and that creates friction, bumping into each other, what you believe and how you are forced to behave. That is called COGNITIVE DISSONANCE. And if that goes on long enough, one of the two is going to win. Either you will struggle to hang on to what you believe or you will throw out what you believe and accept the new to shrug off and eliminate an uncomfortable mental state and situation. On an average day we are subjected to 5000 to 10000 persuasive messages a day. And that is setting the environment to make you thirsty later on whether you realize it or not. So as scary as the internet is, with cookies and elaborate surveillance techniques, this is really what is happening on a daily basis. The amount and the sophistication of the research and the messaging that is everyday leading you away perhaps from what you believe to arriving to a place where you did not know you were going.

It is so interesting how EACH OF US WILLING AND KNOWINGLY TAKE SMALL STEPS EACH DAY TOWARD THE TRUTH, with a certain amount of difficulty and suffering, OR AWAY FROM THE TRUTH, taking the easy way. As individuals and collectively we become closer to the Truth and see things more clearly, or we go farther away from the Truth and we slowly sink into the abyss of confusion, and eventually eternal confusion and irrationality with the author of lies, if we do not repent and confess our sins before it is too late. While we are alive, it is never too late to recuperate the possibility of eternal salvation and happiness; Jesus offers His mercy to those who have the humility to repent and beg for His divine mercy up until our last breath! After death, our choice is ratified by God for all eternity. Collectively, as a society and as a country, the more people choose to reject Truth, the more we make absurd and destructive laws without being able to even understand the logic of where these laws lead us and how they result in our destruction and collapse.

CHILDREN are getting the message from their parents that sex is a great gift from God. But AT SCHOOL THEY ARE GETTING THE MESSAGE THAT SEXUAL EXPERIMENTATION AND EXPLORATION IS FINE with the opposite sex or with the same sex or whatever makes you feel good with no reference to responsibility associated with true altruism. And if there is a problem here, yes we do not want you to end up with an STD, so we are going to make sure that you have as much protection as you can possibly have. We certainly do not want you young lady to become pregnant out of wedlock so … and they are hearing these message in a captured environment over and over again. This is a cognitive dissonance here. But it goes farther then that. Because while the parents are teaching, let’s say Catholic teaching, or traditional values or just conservative values or family tradition, they are also telling their kids: “listen to your teacher, that’s what you are there for”, and they are setting the teacher up as the authority figure, especially in educational matters, but unfortunately the gay social agenda has spread throughout the schools systems now.

In 1990, Kevin Jennings, with three other people, founded GLISTeN, the GAY AND LESBIAN INDEPENDENT SCHOOL TEACHER NETWORK. The organization's name was later changed to GLSTN, Gay and Lesbian School Teachers Network, and then to GLSEN--the Gay, Lesbian, Straight, Educational Network--whose mission is to destroy old time religious beliefs which hold that the homosexual act is a grave sin and disorder. Christians, as their Savior Jesus Christ, love the sinner and those with homosexual tendencies, but hate the sin, the act of homosexuality. Of course Gay activists do not make this distinction and thus accuse Christians of hating homosexually oriented people. Gay activists have willing destroyed the consciousness of what sin is according to the one true God, Who imprinted His law into nature itself; thus how can they possibly make or understand this vital and fundamental distinction. They boast that they have 4000 Gay Straight Alliance clubs in schools across the nation. What happens is that there are national things that are supposed to be spontaneous students grassroots things, but they are not. They are messaged by the ACLU, gay advocacy groups, etc. They come into the schools, they get the students involved, they get the counselors involved, they get the administration involved; they create an environment, FORCED COMPLIANCE, where even if the parents are teaching their children that heterosexual marriage is connected to how God created us as a man and a woman, in school all day long, if the children voice a different opinion, they are going to be OSTRACIZED, they may even be called a homophobe, which is a made up word - it is really a political word, not a medical term. And so all day long, their emotions, their cognitions, their beliefs, have to be held in check against the environment that they are put in. And what starts to happen is, and research has shown this, if you take a look at the issue of same sex marriage, the more years the students have been exposed to this subtle indoctrination without their consent, the more they are in favor of same sex marriage, because they have had more and more years of being taught that same sex marriage and homosexuality is normal and healthy. IT IS A GRADUAL INDOCTRINATION TO A WORLD VIEW AND AN ETHOS THAT IS OUTSIDE THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN ETHOS, but it is not presented that way as being outside the Judeo-Christian ethos, but rather as safety, diversity, or something else, which is what helps to sell it to the parents.

“A PARENT’S GUIDE TO PREVENTING HOMOSEXUALITY”, by Dr. Joseph Nicholas (www.dads.org).

RELIGION IN SCHOOLS IS REALLY WHERE IT BUMPS HEADS WITH THIS COGNITIVE DISSIDENCE AND FORCED COMPLIANCE. Whenever a child is told - and we have seen supreme court cases all over the place like this - when a child is told that you cannot bring religion into the school because there is “SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE”, and whether you are a voting citizen or a child in school, when someone says this; first of all the supreme court never said this; the supreme court said the government has to be neutral. It did not say one has to suppress one side in favor of the other (multiple courts show that the supreme court is neutral). Secondly, what they are really saying is this, and this goes back to the messaging of leading you up to where you think you are doing the right thing: when someone says to your child “church and state”, when someone says to you as a citizen “church and state”, WHAT THEY ARE REALLY SAYING IS, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE AS A CHRISTIAN, you only have a right to vote as a non Christian because that is the way I believe. And it is not even a matter of you forcing your faith on me. That is messaging. I am not forcing my faith on anybody. But I have a right to vote for my world view and my world view happens to be Christianity. So when you hear these sorts of arguments they are always a little bit off the topic, and that is rhetoric, that is messaging, that is marketing, of saying “lets really frame it in this way instead of that way”. Do I not have a right to vote as a Christian? And what they are really saying is NO! You only have a right to vote if you vote as a non Christian. This has happened not only to the voting public but we have watched, and it pains me deeply, when CATHOLIC POLITICIANS say: “I have to leave my world view at the door when I vote for legislation.”

Jesus said: "But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father Who is in heaven" (Mt 10:32-33). Notice here the words “before men” clearly indicates publicly. IT WILL NOT WORK ON JUDGMENT DAY to say I believed in you Jesus in my heart, but in order TO BE “POLITICALLY CORRECT” I voted in favor of legally permitting other adult human beings to kill defenseless and unwanted human begins! So too those who deny Jesus “before men” to receive the mark of the beast, the microchip, so as to eat and to avoid starvation and to evade even torture and death, while self-justifying themselves that in a hidden, non public way, they believe in Jesus, “him will I also deny before My Father Who is in heaven”!

It is upsetting when we see these things because we begin to see that WE HAVE BEEN TOYED WITH, WE HAVE BEEN PLAYED WITH, WE HAVE BEEN LOOKED AT AS A COMMODITY in a sense, to be filled so that we can be sold to the highest bidder. Whoever does the best job of marketing gets the person. This is not the way it is meant to be. And this is not the purpose and the whole thrust of why we have been given the great gift of communication. But that is where we are today. So we have to be smart about it; we have to look at it and see it and channel our anger so that we can use the energy that is created by that outrage to move the train forward as God intended it to be.

We have seen this too with political agendas, with new world views, that have been thrusted and hoisted upon us today as well. We see this being used in the elections also!

THESE RUTHLESS MANIPULATORS CHANGE THE DEFINITION OF TERMS SO AS TO PUSH FORTH THEIR CULTURE OF DEATH. There are institutes which have lots of money, and many of these institutes have an agenda, they want to use their money to advance a certain ideology. So they will begin to use that money in such a way that they can entice, let’s use the medical profession, or the pharmaceutical company, or whoever it might be. Then we are not even sure if we are getting truth from, let’s say the medical establishment, because some doctors say, “hello”, there is no such thing as a pre-embryonic state, “hello”. That’s not true; that is not science. But this redefinition of the embryo happened in Missouri in 2008, and in many other states. The child in the womb was changed to “a piece of tissue” or whatever.

THERE IS A REAL SCHIZOPHRENIA HERE, ESPECIALLY IN REGARD TO THE LIFE ISSUES. People do not know how to refer to anything anymore. When there was found a baby in the sanitation dump in Orlando, Florida that was somewhere between 4 or 5 months of gestation, the baby was referred to as a fetus, because they do not want to admit that the child is a child; they want to call it something else, because they cannot talk about the baby as being a baby unless they want the baby, in which case it is a baby. But in the report the police were looking for the mother, but you cannot be a mother to a blob of tissue! This very statement is a cognitive dissidence, regardless of what fetus actually does means. In Latin it means a little person; nobody thinks of it that way. It divorces the reality of what it is, a baby, that is filled with all kinds of connotations and warm regard. They depersonalize it; BUT THEN THE POLICE WERE LOOKING FOR THE MOTHER OF THIS PIECE OF TISSUE. It makes no sense. But we hear this all day long; we take it into our being all day long.

In politics, Richard Weaver said that THE ABILITY TO NAME, to give something a name, like Adam in the Garden of Eden, IS THE MOST POWERFUL THING THAT YOU HAVE. And so what you always have, when you take the product, you name it in a way that you can sell it. The Employment Non-discrimination Act and Hate Crimes, everything in there is already illegal. It is about rights for everybody and for victims. But the only thing that those two bills add is homosexuality as a protected class. SO THEY ALWAYS SELL THE BIGGER PACKAGE TO SNEAK IN WHAT THEY WANT. This reminds me of the Health Care Bill, which of course was promoted using good motives and terms, but ended up forcing taxpayers to pay for abortion and creating a much greater national debt as well as shifting money, power and decision making to the Washington beurocrats who could care less about your suffering mother! And what you hear a lot in politics these days, particularly among extreme social movements, is it is always about rights versus what is right. And you never talk about the actual activity that is going on. You never talk about abortion. You never talk about what homosexual sex is, who they have it with and how often. You never talk about what actual happens such as regarding embryos. To use an analogy, do aardvarks grow from acorns? If an acorn is planted, it is going to grow into an oak tree, not a plum tree, not an aardvarks. But it is always away from the issue to distract people to want to do the right thing according to their agenda. So the product or the idea that is being sold is always framed in a way, where you, not being an expert, but you are hearing these messages over and over again, you come to believe that the right thing is what they are selling you even if it is an outright lie. AND THE LANGUAGE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO MAKE YOU THINK IT IS THE RIGHT THING, THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU BELIEVE.

There are three other marketing techniques that are used: desensitize, jam, and convert. DESENSITIZATION is really the first stage. In advertising there is something called reaching frequency. Desensitization is kind of the opposite of that. Where you move from there is something that is a lot meaner marketing technique. And that is something called JAMMING. You normally find this in social movements. Do you want to be called a racist? Of course not. Jamming is a way of making you self check your self of jamming the opposition’s message and staying focused on your message. E.g., homophobe. That’s not a medical term; that’s a made up political term. But it is being made the equivalent of being a racist or a bigot. So you do not want to say something even if it is the Truth (big “T”, not the little “t”, the truth that we have all over the place now is with the little “t” (relativism)). You start to check yourself because you do not want to be made uncomfortable, your child does not want to be made uncomfortable. And jamming ultimately creates what is called in communications theory “SPIRAL OF SILENCE”. Jamming takes hold because you are being called a homophobe or a racist. WHAT IS REALLY BEING MARKETED NOW, THE BIG OVERVIEW, IS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS. And the research on political correctness is that it allows people to feel involved in something bigger than themselves without having to make any sacrifices. Political correctness is really a form of jamming of what you say and what you do not say and what you do and what you do not do. And it creates what is called a spiral of silence. Maybe you are kind of in the middle, so you are not really educated about the absolute importance of and the cornerstone of humanity which is the family unit. So you do not want to take that on. And as fewer and fewer people talk about it, who talk in dissent to these lies, there comes a spiral of silence, so now the people that are left are fewer and fewer … until it is just one AND THE CONCEPT GOES AWAY TOTALLY. That is what jamming does; it actually makes people stop speaking from their hearts and their common sense and their world view and their faith. To speak less or to speak in more moderate terms - everybody is moderate these days - until finally that spiral of silence, that message is not even being given anymore.

The last marketing techniques is CONVERSION: If you are desensitized, and now you have been jammed, and your support group, the people who feel like you have been jammed, ultimately what happens is, you are silenced in order to solve this uncomfortable state of not being “politically correct”. Let’s use an example. You are at a party and you never really want to say what you believe because you know most of the people there do not believe as you do. That’s an example of cognitive dissidence. You are checking yourself; you do not want to be uncomfortable, you do not want to offend anybody. And ultimately what forced compliance shows is that it is not putting you into jail and making you do something, because you know that is against your will. What happens is you start substituting things in your mind to get back to that comfortable state of not speaking or going against the flow, against the prevailing current which carries the dead bodies and dead consciences downstream. You start believing those messages that you never listened to but have an impact on you. And you are converted like the frog in the pot in cold water heated up slowly. And that is the ultimate goal: the conversion of the mind. YOU ARE NOT ONLY CONVERTED BUT YOU FORGOT WHAT YOU USED TO BELIEVE.

Many people feel the way you or I feel. But if I do not talk about it, if you do not talk about it, then we help those people to maintain that silence. It is an interesting thing, that when you are willing to talk about it, you suddenly hear a lot of people talking about it. Because you have given them permission by your action. We have got to be the first ripple. We have got to be the first pebble thrown… Truth is truth, and it only has a capital “T”. All these other small “t”s, they are not truths at all. They are agendas. Truth has a name, Jesus Christ. We have got to allow ourselves to make the first ripple, causing rippling out effects. If we remain silent, if we allow ourselves to feel stupid, if we allow ourselves to feel incompetent, if we allow ourselves to feel ignorant, if we stop trusting in that gift of discernment, that movement within us, if we stop trusting in that, then we are sitting ducks. We, who know better and have received more truth and grace, will be judged much more severely for having buried our “talents”: “And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth” (Mt 25:25-30).

ANOTHER THING YOU CAN DO THAT IS REAL EASY. You do not have to be a great speaker. You do not have to be like Moses, don’t send me, I do not know what I am doing. This is what sales people do, you do not sell by telling, YOU SELL BY ASKING. Just ask questions. E.g., same sex marriage as an example. Just ask the question, well if a man can marry a man, then why can’t a father marry his daughter. If it is not a man and a woman, then why can’t a brother marry his sister? Because that is where it goes. And if you think of just common sense questions, you will find out that some of your loudest neighbors, they are great on talking points, but they can’t answer the questions. This is at least the way to plant into the hearts of other people a seed of doubt so that they can then begin to investigate the seed of reality. Do not go in there with a laundry list of points to be made. Just ask the question. “I am just confused here, maybe you can help me out. Clarify this for me. If you are telling me that two men can get married because any coupling of individual can be called a marriage, then why can’t a father marry his daughter. I am confused. I do not understand the logic here, help me.” YOU FIND OUT IT IS A SPECIOUS ARGUMENT. THERE IS NOT INTERIOR LOGIC TO IT.

THE ENTIRE IDEA IS TO MARKET AWAY FROM THE PRODUCT, WHAT IT REALLY IS, what the end result really is, and keep it up in these ethereal areas of rights, which, how do you define those? And these ideas, I want to do the right thing. And for the most part, they never really talk about what is being sold to you, an ideology, politics, or a product for that matter, but what you will buy not, what is being sold. It is not the best product that gets bought. It is not the product presented. It is the product that is presented the best. Marketing is taking a product that you cannot change and presenting it the best. That includes ideas and ideologies.

READ ABOUT the use, without our permission or consent or knowledge, of these very powerful, sophisticated and highly developed techniques and their effects on us as an unsuspecting public: “SELLING HOMOSEXUALITY TO AMERICA” by Paul E. Rondeau (http://www.lifeissues.net/writers/rond/shta/shta_01sellinghomosexuality1.html; http://www.couplescompany.com/FEATURES/politics/2004/Selling%20Homosexuality.pdf; http://www.untwistedtruth.com/).

Homosexual activists call their movement "GAY RIGHTS." This accomplishes two major objectives: (1) The use of the word gay rather than homosexual masks the controversial sexual behavior involved and accentuates instead a vague but positive-sounding cultural identity – gay, which, after all, once meant "happy"; and (2) describing their battle as one over "rights" implies homosexuals are being denied the basic freedoms of citizenship that others enjoy. The game plan of these shrewd gay activists was to employ powerful marketing and public relations techniques as well as science to undermine old time religion. And they have done exactly that. IS THIS NOT VERY UPSETTING?

So one of their key points of the marketing plan of homosexuality was to undermine the Church and in fact to redefine Christian beliefs just as they now want to redefine marriage. The gay militants went to the leadership of the APA (AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION) and sold the notion to them, and then the leadership of the APA went and tried to sell it to their membership. But the membership was never completely complicit in this, they never really agreed with what was being pushed and shoved down their throats.

The movement started with Dr. Robert Spitzer with the APA, who writes about this currently. There was no new scientific research that removed homosexuality as a socio-pathic personality disorder. SPITZER REDEFINED HOMOSEXUALITY on behalf of Gay activists so that this disorder could be removed from public awareness. It was the same disorder that it always was. Now they are redefining Christianity. After 2000 years of every Christian scholar of every denomination agreeing that homosexuality is sinful, we hear things in the emergence church: “Well it really doesn’t say that”. Regarding marriage: “No, no, we are not redefining it”. But if it is not a man and a woman, if it is not two halves of humanity, then what is it? If it is not a man and a woman, it can be anything that man says it is.

These public manipulators have been trying to prove an organic source of homosexuality for many years but have been unable to do that. For decades, the APA has not considered homosexuality a psychological disorder, while other professionals in the field consider it to be a "gender-identity" problem. TO TRY TO MAINTAIN A LITTLE CREDIBILITY, the APA even had to revise their statement on homosexuality. Specifically, in a brochure that first came out in 1998, the APA stated: "There is considerable recent evidence to suggest that biology, including genetic or inborn hormonal factors, play a significant role in a person's sexuality.” Contrast this with the new statement (May 2009): "There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation.”

Peter LaBarbera, who heads “Americans for Truth About Homosexuality”, believes the more recent statement is an important admission because it undermines a popular theory. "People need to understand that the 'GAY GENE' THEORY HAS BEEN ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROPAGANDA BOONS OF THE HOMOSEXUAL MOVEMENT over the last 10 or 15 years," he points out. "Studies show that if people think that people are born homosexual they're much less likely to resist the gay agenda."

Matt Barber with “Liberty Counsel” feels the pronouncement may have something to do with SAVING FACE. "Well, I think here the American Psychological Association is finally trying to restore some credibility that they've lost over the years by having become a clearly political organization as opposed to an objective, scientific organization," he states. With the new information from the APA, Barber wonders if the organization will admit that HOMOSEXUALS WHO WANT TO CHANGE CAN CHANGE. (http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.aspx?id=528376).

“'Gay' gene claim suddenly vanishes”; http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=97940). “The Fading "Gay Gene"; (http://www.narth.com/docs/fading.html; http://americansfortruth.com/news/american-psychological-association-backtracks-on-gay-gene-claim.html). “The Psychological Profession and Homosexuality: Lunatics Running the Asylum?”; (http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2009/aug/09081407.html).

There never was any consensus except among the gay activists of division 44 of the APA!

They did research years ago as part of the marketing plan that showed that if you told people that if you were born that way, that it is innate, people would be more likely to accept it. And they used that research, except there was a caveat to it. Several scientists did research on the research and they found that when presented to biology students, it had the opposite affect. So when presented to people who actually know something about science versus those who just worship at the altar of science, it had a crumbling foundation. THEY WERE TOLD TO BE CAREFUL HOW THEY USE THIS FALSE PROPAGANDA.

IT IS MY CONTENTION THAT THE AMERICAN POPULATION DOES NOT WANT TO BE MANIPULATED; THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE TOYED WITH OR PLAYED WITH. And this is precisely what happened. All of this pseudo science that has accompanied this discussion for all of these years is simply that: PSEUDO. There is no Gay gene; none has been found and scientists say that they doubt if they will find it. The point of the matter is, this has been a socially constructed campaign. And that is upsetting to say the least! “The Gay Gene?” by Jeffrey Satinover, M.D. (http://www.leaderu.com/jhs/satinover.html). “Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth” by Jeffrery Satinover; (http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/homosexuality/ho0002.html). “Americans for Truth, a newly reorganized national organization devoted exclusively to exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda” (http://www.aftah.com/).

The act of homosexuality is not only disordered, but IT LEADS TO OTHER DISORDERS. It is a symptom of a deeper emotional hurt and wound. Just like drugs or any other obsessive behavioral trait, when it does not satisfy, you seek further and further to find what it is you are looking for, never filling the spot that is empty. So you have within the homosexual lifestyle drug abuse, alcohol abuse, obsessive compulsive disorders, depression and doubt, even to the point of viewing suicide as a solution. “The Gay Youth Suicide Myth”; (http://www.leaderu.com/jhs/labarbera.html).
“Are Gay People Excluded From Clinical Trials? - Findings Show Studies on Cancer, Depression Often Exclude Gay People” (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/WellnessNews/gay-people-excluded-clinical-trials/story?id=10129927).

Interestingly we have the entire legal and social framework now developing around something called “HATE CRIMES” when in fact the highest level of domestic abuse is within the Gay community. The safest person is a married woman; she has the lowest amount of domestic abuse. The most at risk are two lesbians; this is FBI statistics, not religious statistics or even medical statistics, but FBI reports. The amount of abuse within the Gay community regarding domestic abuse is far above and far greater than anything in the heterosexual community, including heterosexuals that are cohabitating, which of course have a higher abuse rate than married people do.

There is a much higher abuse of drugs and alcohol in the Gay community. THE IDEA OF A LIFETIME COMMITMENT DOES NOT EXIST WITHIN THE HOMOSEXUAL COMMUNITY. Even within so-called “committed pairs”, they will say that the freedom to have “open relationships” is part of the lure of the homosexual lifestyle to begin with. It never intends to be monogamous. In Holland they did a study shortly after same sex pairs were legalized and found that less than 5% of those who made some sort of public declaration of commitment, had been monogamous even one year later. So one thing was to achieve their political objective, but they were unable to satisfy it in terms of their personal commitment within the content of that political objective which was a legalized union.

We are so manipulated and conditioned to think about homosexuality! The human genome project was completed and they found no Gay gene! The research done by homosexuals could not be replicated because their research was methodologically flawed. It was not a surprise to the original researchers. AND YET WE ARE STILL CONDITIONED TO BELIEVE THIS BIG LIE due to their well orchestrated manipulations.

This is not a new technique. In 1970, the CALIFORNIA MEDICAL JOURNAL released an article how ABORTION WOULD BE A VERY LUCRATIVE BUSINESS; it was admitted in the article that indeed that if this were to be presented to the American population it would never fly because the American population would never permit the killing of a child in the womb. It was admitted in the article that everyone knows that life begins at the moment of conception. So they had to change the language; they had to change the way in which people refer to the child in the womb; they had to begin to depersonalize the child. (“Recycling Wrongs: All Over Again”; http://lawreview.vermontlaw.edu/articles/v32/3/short.pdf; http://www.all-creatures.org/murti/pub-thelib-01.html; http://www.prolifecare.com/holyinnocents/evidence.html).

God has lovingly given to mankind A VERY ORDERED DIVINE PLAN. Our God is not a capricious God. He is omniscient, so He could not be capricious. The design of His creation is meant to follow an order. And when it does not follow this order then aberration exists. We see this unfortunately in the disease that accompanies this type of homosexual lifestyle. The body rebels against it.

They say that God forgives all the time, and that man forgives sometimes, but NATURE NEVER FORGIVES. We see all this disorder breaking out in the lifestyle which is fundamentally disordered from the prospective of God’s plan. Even if you do not believe God’s plan, believe what nature is telling you about it. You can extrapolate backwards to find out what God’s plan really is just from the terrible chaos that results from going away from this plan and going toward something that is naturally disordered as well as spiritually disordered. When we look at it from that prospective, we are looking at something that has to be manipulated in order to be promoted. Because God’s plan is very black and white, very simple, and God leaves it that way because He knows that this is the only way that we are going to get it. It is good for everybody, for all of His children. And just like kids, kids like very secure and clear concepts.

In order to change those concepts you have to obfuscate, you have to change terminology, you have to change language, you have to rationalize, you have to make something abstract which God makes very clear.

These powerful and energetic manipulators have STIMULATED A FALSE COMPASSION for those who have the homosexual tendency. There are many notions today about the homosexual lifestyle being something that is somehow biological; but there is no gay gene even though we continue to hear this lie in the mass media. A false compassion is not a good response because it truly does not help the person who is caught up in the midst of a very disordered lifestyle. Thus these conniving people have to take the public out of the realm of objective right and wrong and put it into very subjective categories such as compassion which is a very subjective thing; it is an emotional type of thing. It is just about how you feel basically, not about what is right and wrong. And that is part of the manipulation, part of the marketing in order to get us to accept something that is totally unacceptable in God’s plan and very destructive to these poor people who have fallen into the trap, as well as to society.

There are CAUSES WHICH CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THIS LIFESTYLE. There is gender confusion due to improper identification at the critical time. On a farm for animals, it is called imprinting. It is easier for girls to self-identify their gender than for boys. Thus if the father is not involved and present with a minimal amount of fatherly love at that critical time, as happens more often in our industrial age, there is not always the backup and support system today to help the child discover his God-given identification. So when puberty arrives, if a teenager has an initiating experience with a homosexual predator, this boy has a hormonal burst that goes with the pleasurable experience and grooves the brain. After this initiating experience, it is difficult for the boy to believe that he is not a homosexual. But this damage can be overcome with prayer, love of God and neighbor, and determination just as one can overcome the strong addictions to pornography and masturbation. The homosexual community knows this and yet many homosexuals go into the study of science and into education because they want to bend education and science to support their world view.

How did they move this agenda forward in the face of the reality that none of it is true? The average income of those in the homosexual community is much higher per capita. In the book: “After the Ball”, the strategy was laid out after the War conference. They concentrated on PRODUCT, PROMOTION, PRICING, PLANNING (the four P’s of marketing); the biggest piece of it was to repackage the product so it is no longer homosexual but it is gay, because that takes sex out of it; it is lesbian; it is not even transsexual anymore, it is transgender; so you remove sex out of it even though homosexuality is all about sex. It is verbal manipulation. This is the Gay agenda, the Gay rights movement.

The Gay people may seem nice! Your next door neighbor… Same sex marriage is not about rights, it is about political power. We have a 1000 laws on the federal books in each state that mention adoption, parents, spouse, marriage, … ALL OF THESE LAWS ARE THEIR TARGET. But more importantly, the way it has been marketed is that it is just another thing; talk and talk… until everyone gets fed up with it. If they cannot get you out of the shower at least they will get you used to getting wet. So they want to numb our intelligence; this is the marketing plan. When we talk about if you are born gay or not, it does not matter. People can be born with cancer or obesity… Let’s just redefine obesity, if it is a big problem, OK, all kids under 250 lbs are not obese. Problem gone!

So when you talk about same sex marriage, that is not the end, that is the beginning. THEIR AGENDA IS MEANT TO USURP OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. Many people have already been sued: photographers regarding religious protection; priests in Canada investigated for hate crimes; an Evangelical pastor had to take many things off of his web site; they are threatening the licenses of professionals, doctors, … The key here is that they want to convince us that same sex marriage is about doing the right thing. Because most people want to do the right thing. In the marketing of the homosexual agenda they had to silence their critics, they want to repackage it to be healthy wealthy and wise, which it is none of the above. They want their agenda to become totally ingrained in society; they specifically said that their goal was to convert the hearts and minds of the average citizen.

This is not about rights, it is not about doing the right thing, THIS IS ABOUT POLITICAL POWER. Years ago it was about: “We just want to be left alone.” You do not want the government in your bedroom do you? We said: “Well that seems right.” And then in 2003, “Lawrence v. Texas”, all of a sudden Sodomy was a constitutional right. And if you think it is going to end with same sex marriage, … it will be only another stepping stone in their destructive path.

Our grandparents of our traditional “old time religion” remembered the words of Jesus Christ: “Truly, I say to you, it shall be MORE TOLERABLE on the day of judgment for the land of SODOM AND GOMORRAH than for that town” (Mt 10:15). If this is the promise of Christ for one town, what will happen when homosexual acts are promoted and protected and encouraged by the law in the WHOLE WORLD?!?

At the Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington, D.C. on October 10, 2009, president Obama said: “There are still fellow citizens, perhaps neighbors, even loved ones -- good and decent people -- who hold fast to OUTWORN ARGUMENTS AND OLD ATTITUDES. … You will see a time in which we as a nation finally recognize relationships between two men or two women as just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman.” (http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2009/10/obama_human_rights_campaign_sp.html).

It is interesting that OBAMA STAYED AWAY FROM THIS TOPIC BEFORE ELECTIONS in November 2008 because he knew how most Americans feel about this issue. Despite the powerful hammering and brainwashing of the mass media on this issue, the Americans have voted consistently up to this time to not undermine the most fundamental cell of society, the family, by redefining marriage and family according to these secular humanists. Why do Obama and the democrats not represent the people who overwhelmingly elected them last November?

“US Administration Launches ALL-OUT INTERNATIONAL HOMOSEXUAL “RIGHTS” OFFENSIVE” (June 24, 2010; http://www.c-fam.org/).

“ON DADT, OBAMA ORDERS MILITARY TO FALL IN” - While the President plows ahead on his agenda with--or more likely without--the country's support, he could emerge from these fights with nothing more to show for it than the last Democratic President. But make no mistake. If he fails to persuade Congress to legislate his extremism, this President has other ways to achieve it. Today's hearing in the Senate's Armed Service Committee is the perfect example. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, together with Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is rolling out a "relaxed" standard on homosexuality in the military that would strip the law of its teeth while the President tries to overturn it. (Feb. 2010; http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=WU10B02).

May 26, 2010: “Within the next two days, President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Senator Carl Levin are planning to hold votes in Congress to FORCE OPEN HOMOSEXUALITY ON THE MILITARY. They are moving forward before listening to military commanders, while claiming that military leaders are on board.

GOD THE FATHER: “Place your soul in the Heart of Jesus and oppose yourselves to all that which goes to the detriment of the family (Gen 1:27-28; 2:24). What kind of instruction can a son of two women have! Where is the father? A son of two men! Where is the mother? How does that son grow up? Poor world! Sodom e Gomorrah were less sinners with respect to the contempt and to the enemy influence present now in all of creation. No, children, it is enough to joke about these things! How you are lowering yourselves to touch the dirt, and only there, will you realize who you are imitating and aping: YOU HAVE MADE THE ASTUTE SERPENT (GEN 3:1) YOUR FATHER, AND OF IT YOU HAVE NOT YET BECOME AWARE! Let’s go children, straighten up the head and look on high, that God listens to you and trembles for you”. (June 18, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html).

TAMMY BRUCE, a lesbian feminist conservative, says the MOVEMENT HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY MALIGNANT NARCISSISTs. She says in her book, “The New Thought Police”, that it really is not about rights anymore, it is about power and controlling the rest of society. Consider where same sex marriages leads. The teaching of homosexuality in Massachusetts schools is required starting in Kindergarten; why, because same sex marriage is the law of the land. Parents no longer have any rights to protect their children regarding what is taught in their local schools. So many are no longer being allowed to participate or to use government facilities because they are judged to be using DISCRIMINATORY ACTIVITY because they consider the act of homosexuality a sin. The Salvation Army lost three million dollars of billings in San Francisco; the oldest adoption facility in that state of Massachusetts, a Catholic foundation, is now out of business. Imagine if you are a small business, church, school, or hospital and someone tells you: “Oh, sure it’s OK to not be in favor of same sex marriages, but by the way, you cannot subcontract to the government or to any contract with the government because you are discriminatory; and so the trillion dollars we spend every year, none of it can go to your organization.”

“On September 23, I wrote a news release on the curious moral credentials of KEVIN JENNINGS to be PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SAFE SCHOOLS CZAR: a former drug user and irresponsible teen counselor, he is also a Christian basher. What was not known at the time is that he is also a proud member of ACT UP, the homosexual urban terrorist group that broke into St. Patrick’s Cathedral in 1989 and disrupted Mass; the Eucharist was desecrated and obscene depictions of Cardinal O’Connor were posted.” (http://lasalettejourney.blogspot.com/2009_10_01_archive.html).

The term persecuted is not to be used because this is part of their marketing plan. The marketing plan is to either CONVERT OR SILENCE THE RESISTERS to their cause. And you silence them by marginalizing them or by exacting a price. We understand that when you buy something there is an exchange of money and then you get the good. But the “pricing” here means something very different in this plan.

EXACTION PRICING comes from exacting your pound of flesh. Bear in mind that they have very powerful economics behind them; the average income of homosexuals is significantly higher per capita than the rest of the population. So with carefully crafted propaganda fed through the media, you are being labeled as a racist or a bigot or a homophobe (a made up word). Homosexuality is being forced on our children in their public classrooms. THESE CLEVER MANIPULATORS OFTEN USE THE FALSELY APPLIED “SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE”! Why are we not allowed to separate this heinous propagation of a very disordered lifestyle from our dear children in our public schools?!? The homosexual agenda has been carefully crafted and packaged to change the way Americans think about homosexuality. First they claim to be a victim. Then they cry for tolerance when actually their goal is acceptance, legitimacy and the stifling of decent. THE ARGUMENT IS REFRAMED so that there are only two positions: that of the reasonable tolerant person and that of the stifled bigot. A closet is by no means a suitable place to live, but to abandon it only to force people of faith into it is NOT TOLERANCE.

They have closed down businesses. During PROPOSITION 8 in CALIFORNIA, there were bomb threats; there have been churches invaded. They published the list of all the donors that were in favor of Prop. 8. Why would you publish a donor list; what would the reason be for that? Yes it is public information, but why would gay groups publish the opposition donor list? American Airlines, Fortune 500 companies, they have all felt the brunt of exaction pricing.

Some of us are old enough to remember DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER; she is licensed in psychology, she is very credentialed, and they made her out to be a hack. She was actually gay friendly, but she made the mistake of basically saying one thing: “IT ISN’T NORMAL”. And they ended up going after all of her advertisers, going after her, labeling her as a bigot, her show was cancelled. Do you remember ANITA BRIANT, who you cannot speak about anymore? She was vilified!

And then there are the X GAYS: the executive director (cult founder and founding editor, Michael Glatze) of “Young Gay America”, the founder of “Venus Magazine” (young gay lesbian), Charlene Cothran - - - they left the lifestyle, proclaimed it publicly, and the long knives came out: they were proclaimed to be psychotic, they had drunken right wing Kool-Aid, they internalized their homophobia …

The same kind of campaign was led against SARA PALIN. MISS CALIFORNIA was ridiculed and attacked for not representing the people of California by saying that she believed in one man and one woman marriages. It does not have to make sense; it is not logical! It does not have to be true, because they will redirect our thoughts through marketing to sell us the lie. We are seeing it! If you want to see WHAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU, see what has happened to people who have come out of it, who were high profile, and have gone public, and that is what is in store for the rest of us. HOPEFULLY THIS INCREDIBLE PERSECUTION AND TOTAL PERVERSION OF THE TRUTH MIGHT OPEN THE EYES OF THE CONSUMING PUBLIC!

“The VOCATION OF MARRIAGE is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator” (CCC 1603).

It is amazing how the truth can be manipulated and changed in the public forum even though this falls out of God’s plan for the human person, even though medical science proves the truth of the matter, even though the cancer rate is so high among individuals in this lifestyle, domestic violence rate is so high, drug and alcohol abuse is so high… The atrocious sickness called AIDS was so endemic to the Gay community that it used to be called GRID (GAY-RELATED IMMUNODEFICIENCY DISEASE), and it was changed after they had their War Council to Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome, as a marketing tool again to remove the stigma from the people who really had it and spread it. We have learned since then that it is actually spread due to promiscuity. But in the U.S., with the Gay bathhouses, AIDS in the U.S. was almost totally within the gay community. Gay is a social political name (the Gay Party). There was even a lot of infighting in the Gay activist community with those who spoke up very harshly about these political goals: “Is not this agenda costing us our own lives?”; but they did not win the battle. This is similar to the horrendous attitude of PLANNED PARENTHOOD and the feminists regarding the horrible results on women around the world who are greatly discriminated against and sold as sex slaves due the these God-less, horrendous policies of Planned Parenthood. It seems that the feminists have taken a vow of silence; look at what is being done to their sisters in China; they are being forcibly aborted in the third trimester of pregnancy. This is a violation of the right to choose which they preach so much about. Why do they not speak out? They say: “Well, I’m personally opposed to forced abortions. But after all, China does have a population problem. They have so bought into the myth of over population that they will not lift a finger to help their sisters “abroad” who are being forcibly aborted and sterilized.

The Godless feminists are also not, by and large, sympathetic to women who want to have children. All of their sympathy is reserved for women who do not want marriage nor a family nor children. This is why they do not speak out about forced abortion as well.

Are not those with a homosexual tendency being USED BY POWERFUL MANIPULATORS above them for other global (Satanic!) purposes and goals? When the people were allowed to vote on this issue in over 30 states, the people always voted to maintain the traditional definition of marriage between a man and woman as God intended from the very beginning (Gen 1:27; 2:24), even though the powerful Gay lobby spent far more money on these referendums than the groups who were supporting the traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Gay unions are legal right now only in three states where the people were forced to accept this law imposed on them by the little dictators in their state governments.

We are truly dealing with another ANTI LIFE MOVEMENT, a manifestation of the culture of death. It is anti life in many respects. The most obvious respect is that Gay people cannot reproduce; there is no way to be fruitful and multiply according to God’s original plan (Gen 1:28); it is physically impossible. So that’s why the whole effort of homosexual adoptions and in vitro fertilizations all come into play here because there is something anti life about it at the very core of the reality of it. On top of that, it is a total distortion of what family and marriage means. When you go against the very fertile plan of God, who became man in Jesus Christ, that we might have life and that we might have it abundantly, it becomes and is anti-God, and therefore by definition it is anti-life; it is all the kinds of things that drive people to death.

Pope Benedict XVI, in his inaugural address before becoming the Holy Father talked about the “DICTATORSHIP OF RELATIVISM”, which is extremely necessary for this movement to advance and move forward. Relativism has certainly seeped into our legislative bodies and into our judicial system. And now we see that there is even a redefinition in the way in which we look at the Constitution of the U.S. Positivism tells us that if this is a living document, it needs to be interpreted according to the day and time in which it functions. This is why we have reason to be concerned even about first amendment rights that we currently seem to enjoy. Since the majority of Americans have not stood up for the truth in the last 50 years or more, soon we will have no rights whatsoever in the so-called “LAND OF THE FREE”!

“POSITIVISM” SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING NICE AND REASONABLE, to adapt the laws for our new times and needs. But the incredible deception is that the elected government officials and the appointed judges apply positivism individually like little dictators without letting the citizens vote on changing the laws for our new times and needs. Our founding fathers, having suffered under tyrannical governments and having seen the folly of the French Revolution, knew very well that the best constitution in the world will crumble if the citizens loose their faith and morals.

THE U.S. BECAME THE RICHEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD BECAUSE our founding fathers did their best to write a constitution to protect people from a future bad government. “POWER CORRUPTS; ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY!” But if the majority of the citizens throw out absolute norms and truth from God and take the easy and egotistical way of relativism, why should the citizens be upset when the elected government officials and the appointed judges do the same? When we begin to understand what is going on here, we can see more clearly that positivism and relativism leads precisely to what Pope Benedict called the “tyranny of relativism” or the dictatorship of relativism. We are heading quickly to “MIGHT MAKES RIGHT”, since we have taken the easy egotistical and prideful way of living and legislating. If we do not seek and do the will of God, we will end up dong the will of Satan in the many forms of egoism. We truly are already under a dictatorship; it is only a matter of time that we will experience the horrific consequences of what we all have contributed to by our sins and lack of prayer. WE ARE GOING MORE AND MORE TOWARD STANDING TRUTH ON ITS HEAD AND EXALTING UNTRUTH!

Our culture has disconnected human life and human morality from the Author of human life and morality, and thus, as Fedor Dostoevsky put it, ALL BECOMES PERMISSIBLE, except of course the 10 Commandments and all of God’s laws! Our culture today tells us that if it feels good, if you subjectively think it is right, if it is easy and if it satisfies you in that moment, do it! Our culture has “separated freedom for the Truth” (Pope John Paul II, “Evangelium Vitae”).

“When we are rid of the modern nightmare of THE MAD LOCKING UP THE SANE and the exceptions ruling the rule, there remains the true philosophical problem of the extent to which the rule can allow for the exceptions.” (G.K. Chesterton).

GOD’S PLAN IS BASED ON THE TRUTH. Let us use just the term “natural marriage”, without using the term “traditional marriage”. Even the most aboriginal cultures had this same natural order. So what is happening here is that we are seeing on the mystical level, brought down to the concrete incarnation on earth, Satan, the father of lies. What we have here is lying as a standard methodology for presenting it’s case to the public. We are not told, for instance, the content of what a homosexual lifestyle is all about. It is not family friendly considering some of the practices that are so destructive both physically and emotionally for the participants in this lifestyle. If most people who thought that the people next door who seem really nice people, but who happen to be a same sex pair, if they had an inkling of what was happening within that relationship, they would be so aghast! They would no longer see it as a matter of “COMPASSION” (FALSE!) according to the definition of the militant Gay activists, but rather they would want to rescue these misguided people from this lifestyle. THIS WOULD BE THE TRUE COMPASSIONATE RESPONSE!

Due to the fact that the militant Gay activists have been able to grab hold of just about all of our institutions in the U.S., including the educational system, our children are at great risk. In an age where good is called evil and evil good, concerned PARENTS MUST INOCULATE THEIR CHILDREN from the cultural engineering of the secular humanists. THE WORLD APPLAUDS SIN! A free man need not be ashamed of virtue; honor needs no apology. Tradition is not right because it is long standing. But some traditions are long standing because they are right!

“Do you not know that THE UNRIGHTEOUS WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God” (1Cor 6:9-11; see also CCC 2357-2359). Every person who desires to follow their God-informed conscience must resist temptations. Normal men and women must control their desire for the opposite sex for love of God and neighbor. So too those who have the homosexual tendency, who desire to follow God, must also resist temptations if they hope to have a happy life on earth and an unimaginable blissful eternity. If I have a desire to kill someone, can I do it, after all, I’m free?!?

CHRISTIANS NEED TO STAND: stand up for the truth, stand up for our faith and families. And yes, stand up for that poor confused soul who is being encourage to engage in behavior destructive to mind, body and soul.

We are very soon going to be placed BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA. This was already clearly indicated by Cardinal Ratzinger (June 3, 2003), as head of the CDF, before being elevated to the Chair of Peter. He refers specifically on the issue of how Christians are to respond, even where same sex unions have been legalized. Many want to believe that if it becomes the law of the land, they are off the hook, as so many have done regarding abortion!
This is what he wrote: “In those situations where homosexual unions have been legally recognized or have been given the legal status and rights belonging to marriage, clear and emphatic opposition is a duty. ONE MUST REFRAIN FROM ANY KIND OF FORMAL COOPERATION IN THE ENACTMENT OR APPLICATION OF SUCH GRAVELY UNJUST LAWS and, as far as possible, from material cooperation on the level of their application. In this area, everyone can exercise the right to conscientious objection.” (“On Legal Recognition of Homosexual Unions - The Church Cannot Approve Deviant Behavior”; http://www.ratzingerreport.com/documents/homosexual_unions.html).

This means that if you are a CITY COMMISSIONER and you are Catholic, you cannot change the laws so as to accommodate this diabolic agenda. If you are a TEACHER, you cannot teach the gay curriculum if you are a Catholic. You can give no “formal cooperation in the enactment or application”. If you are a DOCTOR, you can in no way shape or form teach, hold or promote anything that would support the homosexual lifestyle. If you are a LANDLORD and you have an apartment complex full of families, you cannot rent to a same sex couple, if you are Catholic. If you are a JUDGE or a PASTOR, you cannot marry two people of the same sex!

Thus the more the same sex model of marriage is established by law, the more the traditional, GOD-GIVEN MODEL OF MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN WILL BE ATTACKED AND PERSECUTED. In the end only one model will be left standing since they are MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. If Americans approve marriages between homosexuals or whatever kind of arrangement, departing from what God ordained from the beginning of the creation of mankind, the natural, the traditional, the Christian marriage between a man and a woman will be looked down upon and those who do not accept this ungodly, this non-Christian form of marriage will be treated as racists, bigots and worse. The persecution will quickly increase against those who do not accept this non-Christian, ungodly form of union. As our enemies seek to DESTROY MARRIAGE AND THE FAMILY, which is the fundamental element of society, it will be much easier to render us their slaves without any viable or sustainable resistance on our part. EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO A MOTHER AND A FATHER! (http://www.marriagematterstokids.org/).

So if this becomes legal we are all immediately on the wrong side of the law as Christians. WE WILL BE PERSECUTED FOR STANDING UP FOR GOD’S ORDER AGAINST WHAT IS CLEARLY A SATANIC DISORDER. We see now that the legalization of this disordered lifestyle is only a part of the challenge. There is the challenge to marriage, to family, to life!

Pope John Paul II, before he was elevated to the Chair of Peter, said these prophetic words which apply to all of us and to our situation today:
“We are now standing in the face of THE GREATEST HISTORICAL CONFRONTATION humanity has gone through. I do not think the wide circles of the American society, or wide circles of the Christian community, realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine Providence; it is a trial which the whole Church must take up. It is a trial of not only our nations and the Church, but in a sense, a test of 2,000 years of culture and Christian civilization with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations.” (Pope John Paul II speaking in September 1976, then Karol Cardinal Wojtyla; http://www.saintpiocenter.org/aboutus/observations.asp).

Our Holy Father’s prophetic understanding of the challenge, of the battle, is meant to remind you and me that we all play a part in this “cosmic struggle”. THERE IS NO ONE ON LEAVE FROM THIS BATTLE. For this battle pursues us. But because of divine providence, because of God’s great care and desire to work in and through us, love will triumph. Love as our Holy Father Benedict speaks of love, not just Eros, but true love, is a love rooted in our Lord Jesus Christ. A love that overcomes sin and sickness and all of the challenges sent our way. We must be rooted in that love!

WE HAVE A NARROW WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY LEFT, AND IT IS QUICKLY GETTING VERY, VERY NARROW!

38. Radical FeminismOne of the greatest forces working to DESTROY THE FAMILY and society is radical feminism. The goals of feminism are: the destruction of patriarchy; control of reproduction including contraception, abortion, and reproductive technologies; destruction of the fatherheaded family with divorce and illegitimacy made normal; all women in the workforce, no man able to support his family and free 24 hour day care; destruction of all-male institutions; total sexual liberation including sex for children, homosexuality, and bisexuality; destruction of worship of God as father.

Radical feminism is based on a worldview that is ANTITHETICAL TO BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY. The ethics of radical feminism lead naturally to sexual chaos, intergenerational conflict, and violence. Should such a worldview pervade public policy, society will become less egalitarian, more prone to use force in order to suppress dissent, and violent towards the weakest and most defenseless.

The roots of feminism, as we know, are at variance with Christian principles. It argues from a massive discrimination of women by men, and urges women to revolt against men, thus destroying countless marriages and families. THE MOST FAMOUS PROPONENT OF THIS IDEOLOGY WAS KARL MARX AND HIS DISCIPLE, NIKOLAI LENIN. They urged “a revolution depends upon the degree of participation by women.” On these terms, women’s liberation is simply part of the larger struggle for the eventual creation of a classless society. Satan and his followers use women for their evil goals and programs! The Truth (Who is Jesus) Shall Set You Free (Jn 8:32)!

Since the rise of Protestantism in the early 16th century, feminism has been constantly growing. However, the main reason for this growth has been the rise of Marxist Communism. The Catholic Church, we may say, is the principal target of radical feminism. Such ORGANIZATIONS as Catholics for a Free Choice; the lesbian Women’s Alliance for Theology, Ethics and Ritual; the New Ways Ministries; the Loretto Women’s Network; Call to Action; the Association for Rights of Catholics in the Church; and the New Age movement are EXAMPLES OF HOW DEEPLY FEMINISM HAS PENETRATED CATHOLIC CIRCLES.

Radical feminism is not only OPPOSED TO MASCULINITY OR FATHERHOOD. It is even more savage in its REJECTION OF MOTHERHOOD. The feminists are radically hostile to the mothering of children. In fact, the image of “mother” is just as much in need of transformation as the image of “father.”

A GODLESS FEMINIST IS A MALE WITH FEMININE TRAITS!

“Feminism's "Gendercide" - By Joseph Meaney” (http://www.hli.org/index.php/component/acajoom/?act=mailing&task=view&listid=2&mailingid=700).

The ENGLISH LANGUAGE has been specially used by the feminists to promote their ideology. One of the most radical changes of feminism is never to speak of God in the masculine gender. Why? Because to speak of God as “He” implies that God has mastery over the whole human race. This, in fact, may be said to be the radical foundation of feminism. At root, it is opposed to any faith in God who is Creator and Master of the universe.

Obama Pushing for New United Nations Agency Dedicated to Radical Feminism
Front Royal, VA, 03/03/10 – The OBAMA ADMINISTRATION has endorsed a proposal to create a new U.N. bureaucracy dedicated to restructuring relations between the sexes along RADICAL FEMINIST lines. The new super-agency is supported by a consortium of feminist organizations called the Gender Equality Architecture Reform Campaign (GEAR). (http://www.pop.org/201003051191/obama-pushing-for-new-united-nations-agency-dedicated-to-radical-feminism).
“Radical feminist proposal for UN ‘super agency’ wins Obama administration backing - The Obama administration has endorsed a proposal to create a new U.N. “super agency” to advance extremist feminist ideology, the Population Research Institute (PRI) says. The organization warns the agency could engage in “cultural imperialism” in service to radical causes.

"I am, in fact, convinced, that what feminism promotes in its radical form is NO LONGER THE CHRISTIANITY THAT WE KNOW; IT IS ANOTHER RELIGION." (Pope Benedict XVI speaking (as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger) on radical feminism. Excerpt from 'The Ratzinger Report').

Contrast this radical feminism which destroys the God-given identity of man and woman, as well as the family as God intended, to the saints which the Catholic Church holds out for us as models and guides to true and fulfilling happiness. SAINT GIANNA BERETTA MOLLA (October 4, 1922 – April 28, 1962) was an Italian pediatrician, wife and mother who is best known for refusing both an abortion and a hysterectomy when she was pregnant with her fourth child, despite knowing that continuing with the pregnancy could result in her death. She was canonized as a saint of the Catholic Church in 2004.

Visit “THE CALIFORNIA CATHOLIC WOMEN’S FORUM” - TRUE FEMINISM FOR REAL WOMEN.
“We are a group of women who are educated, employed wives and mothers fully immersed in the age of the so-called women’s movement. We all know women who have used contraception, had abortions, been divorced, burned out in the “real world” only to ask the question, “Is this all there is?” Ultimately, the question is asked, “Who am I and why am I here?” CCWF is turning to John Paul II’s teachings, including his Apostolic Letter, “On the Dignity and Vocation of Women” (Mulieris Dignitatem) for a better way to answer these fundamental feminine question in the popular culture. The Holy Father emphasizes the “feminine genius” - that woman can only find herself by giving love to others. He points out that in the spirit of Christ women can discover the entire meaning of their femininity and thus be disposed to making a “sincere gift of self” to others. Through this sharing, women help shape society and structure the interaction between all persons, man and woman. We have the most wonderful role model in Mary, our mother. John Paul states, “After all, was it not in and through her that the greatest event in human history - the incarnation of God himself - was accomplished?” (http://www.ccwf.org/about.html).

LET US GET A GLIMPSE OF HOW THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE SHOULD BE! “When husbands place their trust primarily in the Lord and draw empowerment from the Lord to be trustworthy, their wives are able to relax and trust the covering and leadership of their husbands. As stated by author Larry Crabb in “Men and Women—Enjoying the Difference”: “Wives tend to go ‘off duty.’ They feel relieved of the relentless pressure to make things go as they should.
They relax in the strength of an advocate that frees them to more easily realize the other-centered
joy of their womanhood. When wives are feminine, husbands gain confidence in handling responsibilities, and are drawn to warmly enjoy and profoundly respect the woman whose involvement with them means more to their hearts than the most coveted honor or achievement could ever mean. They feel strengthened in deep parts of their being where nothing but femininity can touch.” (http://www.rmfc.org/FactSheets/Trust_in_Lord_-Starting_Place_for_Healthy_Marriage.pdf).

“The woman has a right to the honor and joy of motherhood as a gift from God” – Pope John Paul II.

OUR CULTURE SAYS THAT THE WOMAN’S JOB IS TO SEDUCE HER HUSBAND, and that’s the Eve response. But the woman’s true call is to inspire her husband, and that’s the response of the Mother of Jesus as we see at the Wedding of Cana (Jn 4:46-54). We all have a very great design for each of us from God; if we seek and do His will each day, loving God and neighbour as the Gospel tells us, we will fulfil our great design given to us from all eternity!

Archbishop Fulton Sheen explains how we are like animals in as much as we have sensations and passions. This is basically where our modern hedonistic culture stops. But HUMANS HAVE TWO FACULTIES OF THE SOUL WHICH ARE SPECIFICALLY HUMAN. Our soul has the faculty of knowing (intellect) and the faculty of loving (will). The object of the intellect is truth; the object of the will is goodness or love. These faculties operate in quiet a different fashion. The intellect brings that which it knows down to the level of the intellect (degrades the object) or up to the level of the intellect (ennobles the object). The will, on the contrary, goes out to meet the object that it loves. If a man loves something below himself, it degrades him; if a man loves something that is above himself, then he becomes ennobled. That is why it is so important for youth, and for everyone in fact, to have the right kind of ideals and the right kind of heroes, because we tend to imitate them. The higher the love, the more human dignity is lifted up. That is why, to a great extent, the level of any civilization is the level of its woman. Because when man loves a woman, he has to be worthy of her. The higher she is in virtue, nobility of character, truth, justice and goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. We become like that which we love.

Many great women saints lived out their call to evangelize by instructing children in the faith. Such is the case with St. Madeleine Sophie Barat. After the French Revolution, she founded what became the Society of the Sacred Heart, a religious order dedicated to prayer, sacrifice, and the education of girls. Reflecting on Proverbs 31:10-31, she wrote:
“How rare it is to find a valiant woman! It is perhaps necessarily so, since Scripture says that they are more precious than pearls and diamonds. Let us however work to train a few. For in this century we must no longer count on men to preserve the faith. The grain of faith that will be saved will hide itself among women. A woman cannot remain neutral in the world. She too is set for the fall and resurrection of many. How different are God’s thoughts from ours! Between women and God is often arranged the eternal salvation of husbands and sons. But for this she must be valiant. Strong to uphold purity of life. Strong to keep inviolate the treasure of faith. Strong in every battle of life. Great-souled in the face of calamity, persecution and death. And remember, sorrow is the training ground of strong souls.” (http://www.lhla.org/pdf-files/fullofgracewkbch1-2.pdf).

39. The Romantic Model of Judging!In listing his requirements for a Supreme Court pick, President Obama highlighted “EMPATHY” rather than loyalty to Constitutional principles. Now, we see what that means -- a judge who makes it clear she decides cases on feelings, not facts. She is a radical judicial activist who readily admits that she applies her personal political agenda when deciding cases. “Obama Says Constitution Flawed, Framers Didn’t Get It Right”; (http://mainehuntingtoday.com/bbb/2008/10/27/obama-says-constitution-flawed-framers-didnt-get-it-right/).

In a speech at Duke Law School at 2005, SOTOMAYOR (Supreme Court nominee) said that her own Court of Appeals -- not the democratically elected legislature -- is “where policy is made.” Taking such “judicial action,” she said in a 2004 speech, is part of the “heroics of judges today; it may dwell in protecting our own turf and ensuring that it is WE WHO INTERPRET THE LAW.”
In the past Sotomayor often made the statement: “I think a wise Latino woman would make a better decision in a judicial case than a white man”. Before the Senate, she repeats that this statement was a “misunderstanding”! But she said it many times in the last 30 years! It is not an isolated comment, she actually believes this. Her empathetic approach, endorsed by Obama, completely inverts and puts the idea of American justice on it’s head. Will each of us receive justice according to the law or according to a “wise Latino woman” or according to the whims of some other activist judge? Will we have anymore protection “under the law”? The many senators opposing Sotomayor sends the message that the next time there’s a vacancy on the Supreme Court, Americans will expect a nominee whose judicial philosophy upholds the Constitution not his or her own political ideology.

Sotomayor’s philosophy of radical judicial activism is exactly the thinking that led to the Supreme Court turning into the “National Abortion Control Board,” DENYING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THE RIGHT TO BE HEARD ON THIS CRITICAL ISSUE. She will further entrench the Court’s self-appointed role as the sole arbiter of abortion policy. Based on her judicial philosophy, we expect her to elevate unrestricted, unregulated, and taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand to a fundamental constitutional right by reading the sweeping Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) into the Constitution (http://www.aul.org/).

There has been an enormous amount of emphasis on her personal story; her identity as a Hispanic woman, coming up from poverty, and that somehow that story has been put front and center. Is this the proper way to evaluate or vet a supreme court nominee? Every judge, since the beginning of the Republic, has had to raise his or her right hand and swear the same oath. And this oath has a couple of things in it that are worth attention. He or she must swears to decide cases WITHOUT RESPECT TO PERSONS. That is it does not matter if the judge likes this person, if he feels empathy or sympathy for this person or if he identifies with this person; without fear or favor and without respect of persons. Some of the things Sotomayor has said makes one wonder whether she can raise her hand and swear to that.

Also in the oath a judge must swear to FAITHFULLY APPLY THE LAWS OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE U.S. Again, if you belong to the school of thought, that many law professors unfortunately do, that it is OK to make it up as you go along, then I wonder how do they take that oath? How do they justify that? THE ACTUAL OATH is: "I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as (title) under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God." Does not our U.S. constitution state: “For the people and by the people”? Or does it state: “For the judges and by the judges”? I prefer to be judged under the law that I had a part in establishing rather than being judged according to the personal ideas of a “wise Latino woman” or any other self interpreter of what is fair or what is not fair or right or just!

In a book that MARY ANN GLENDON wrote she formulated the oath that a lot of judges today would like to take: “I do solemnly swear to take into consideration the personal characteristics and qualities of the innocent defendants, and to interpret and apply the laws of the U.S. in the fashion THAT SEEMS BEST TO ME!” But that is not what they are putting their hand on the Bible and swearing to!

It is really important to find out what her philosophy of judging is. Glendon tries to not use activist and strict construction. The words that she uses are the “classical model” and the “romantic model”. The CLASSICAL MODEL is the model that is contained in that ancient, judicial oath, and really expresses not just American ideas but the fundamental ideas of fairness and justice that we all hope we will get from a justice system. The ROMANTIC MODEL is more that of Earl Warren and Justice Douglas who feel that if they judge according to their idea of what is fair, then that will be fine. But does this not lead to tyranny, discrimination and ultimately terrible harm to our republic?

“NO on ANTI-GUN SUPREME COURT NOMINATION! - The next justice of the Supreme Court could well cast the deciding vote on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. And that justice will almost certainly preside, during the next thirty years, over dozens of cases which could very well chip away at the DC v. Heller decision, telling us which gun laws the court views as “constitutional” and which “unconstitutional.” So it is more than a little interesting that Barack Qbama has reached into his closet of political leftists to bring out Elena Kagan — a woman whose legal views have been shaped by the most extreme socialist voices in Washington. Kagan doesn’t have a record of judicial opinions. She hasn’t been a judge. So the crafty Obama figures that, without a paper trail, we won’t know of the ways she is moving American jurisprudence to the left until it’s too late. But Kagan’s views on the Second Amendment are no mystery. …” (May 18, 2010; http://www.sofmag.com/wp/2010/05/no-on-anti-gun-supreme-court-nomination/).

IS OUR COUNTRY no longer “for the people and by the people” or have we complacent citizens allowed our country to become FOR THE JUDGES AND BY THE JUDGES? Is this not true and real dictatorship?!? But at least these judicial activists have been impeded a little in promoting atheism in the name of “separation of church and state”. On August 19th, the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruled that Wisconsin prison officials violated an inmate's rights because they did not treat atheism as a religion: “ATHEISM IS [the inmate's] RELIGION, and the group that he wanted to start was religious in nature even though it expressly rejects a belief in a supreme being,” the Seventh Circuit declared.

There is a movement in America and in parts of western Europe to CREATE THIS TOTALLY NAKED PUBLIC SQUARE where you are not allowed to bring your religiously grounded moral principles or anything that smacks of religion. And yet one of the great achievements of western society is that there is such a thing as a public square. In traditional Islamic society everything is private; in the public arena it is religion alone that has the voice. We have this wonderful institution which we inherited from the Greek Agora, which means public square, where we go out and discuss things; we set aside our differences and try to resolve any disagreements. It was in America that this idea first arose that you put religion out of mind all together in the public sphere. But THIS IS A MISUNDERSTANDING OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT and a misunderstanding of just what is involved in keeping religion to one side. How can you actually be in the public square as though you do not believe anything? You are a human being; you come there with your values and your beliefs. And to repudiate these values and beliefs and to negate them just in order to enter the public square is another way of saying that the public square does not exist because there is nobody in it, EXCEPT THE SOCIALISTIC ELITE. To go into it you go into it as the real human being that you are. Our new socialistic godless elite are quickly eliminating the public square using highly sophisticated means to put tremendous pressure on all of us to conform to the new atheistic religion. If you express any kind of religiously grounded moral principles, today in the “land of the free”, you will feel great pressure to change your expressions so as to be “POLITICALLY CORRECT”!

40. The Battle of BattlesWe are engaged in a fight for our lives. Immortal souls are at stake. “This dramatic situation of “the whole world [which] is in the power of the evil one” (1Jn 5:19; 1Pt 5:8) makes man's life a battle: The whole of man's history has been the story of DOUR COMBAT with the powers of evil, stretching, so our Lord tells us, from the very dawn of history until the last day. Finding himself in the midst of the battlefield man has to struggle to do what is right, and it is at great cost to himself, and aided by God's grace, that he succeeds in achieving his own inner integrity” (CCC 409).

King Solomon during a peaceful reign left God while his father, King David, remained faithful in war and combat despite his sins. King David had the humility to admit his sins even though he was the king of all of Israel. (2 Sam 12:1-13).

“And truly it is no wander, for the nearer the time of Antichrist approaches, the more violently he strives to destroy the Christian religion” (St. Gregory VII, Pope; Office if Readings, May 25).

Already in the mid to late 19th century Leo XIII and Pius XI warned us about the unholy movement to expunge God from society, universities, schools at every level, from our midst.

THE WORSENING OF THE TIMES WILL BRING OUT A CERTAIN TEMPERING OF FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS in the faith in the crucible of trial and tribulation. In the past one might have been able to escape by being a Sunday Catholic. Not anymore! Now one must live the faith vigorously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to have a fighting chance. Difficult times drive people to extremes. Some people will be tempered. But for others it will drive them to the extremes of evil. People in the military and the police are generally good solid people. But we should remember that when things got so terrible, Hitler and Stalin and all the other monsters of history never had any problem filling the ranks of the military and of the police with thugs. Fedor Dostoevsky (1821 – 1881), wrote that after having suffered in Siberia: “I learned that it is possible for a man to become more cruel and blood thirsty than any beast.”

“MOB RULE! - Under Obama, Chicago-style bullying and intimidation go nationwide” (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=112013). People that seem OK or even nice today but do not pray and try to live the Gospel will become beasts tomorrow when their stomachs are empty.

The puppets of the New World Order must begin to BRAIN WASH THE POLICE AND MILITARY, using the most highly developed psychological techniques ever developed, so that when they crash everything, and many Americans realize who did it, they must have the police and military on their side… Just as did all the dictators of the past.

What exactly are police departments preparing for?” (http://lasalettejourney.blogspot.com/2009/10/what-exactly-are-police-departments.html).

“Videos And Articles: Military Build Up In And Near California In Preparation Of Civil Chaos/War Off The Back Of Collapse Of US$” (http://loveforlife.com.au/content/09/12/18/videos-and-articles-military-build-and-near-california-preparation-civil-chaoswar-b).

There will be a large number of people that are driven toward evil, and there will be some that are driven toward the extremes of highest sanctity. WHEN TIMES ARE DARK as in the night, the STARS SHINE MORE BRIGHTLY! This period of the “great tribulation” will bring out the best and the worst. Perhaps in past centuries one could get by with Sunday Mass attendance and a few prayers. But now one will have to give one’s whole heart, soul and life to Christ, even to the point of refusing to adore the image of the beast, the antichrist, and die of starvation or be tortured and killed! One cannot straddle the fence any longer! “No man can serve two masters…” (Mt 6:24; Lk 16:13)!

Not only do we have individuals failing, but we also have a MEDIA that is so good at keeping us absolutely blinded to our moral failure because they PROMOTE MORAL FAILURE AS THEIR KIND OF SUCCESS. Something that before might have seemed naughty, is now “cool” because you get on TV or in the newspapers etc. This complicity by the media, which is in the hands of the very few elite, is greatly encouraging immorality leading us rather quickly to disintegrate and to decompose as a society. The opposite of morality is sexual insanity.

The media and so many other anti-God people also promote the false idea of the SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. But this is an absolute fallacy. The U.S. Supreme Court’s “Everson” decision in 1947 imposed an unconstitutional “Wall of Separation” between Church and State. This directly contradicted the vision of the founding fathers. Upon his farewell address to the nation, GEORGE WASHINGTON tried to impress upon his fellow countrymen that it was “Religion and Morality” that served as the foundation for our young nation. Unfortunately under this banner of “separation” many of our government representatives succeed in promoting atheism with the help of numerous judicial activists who do not do their job of applying the constitution and the laws, but make up the laws as they go along.

ROOSEVELT, WHO WAS A MASON, appointed 9 Supreme Court Justices; 6 were Masons and the other 3 espoused the Masonic philosophy. TRUMAN, WHO FOLLOWED ROOSEVELT, WAS A 33RD DEGREE MASON. The Masons claim that Truman said that his greatest honor was not being president but being master of his Lodge. Truman appointed 4 Supreme Court Justices, all of whom were Masons, and Eisenhower appointed 2 Supreme Court Justices, all of whom were Masons. What we see objectively during this period of our American history is that when the court was dominated by Freemasons, they began taking establishment clause cases, the amendments of the constitution dealing with how the government will treat religion. During these judicial decisions by the Supreme court is where we came about with this DOCTRINE OF SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE IN ORDER TO TAKE GOD OUT OF THE PUBLIC SQUARE. This is A MASONIC DOCTRINE that was first espoused by the established right in the New Age Journal, and finally forced upon us by our Masonic Supreme Court Justices in the first case: “Everson v. Board of Education”, 330 U.S. 1 (1947) and cases thereafter. This was the seminal United States Supreme Court case in Establishment Clause law in the United States. In addition to incorporating the Establishment Clause (applying it to the States through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment), “Everson” was the beginning of a powerful separationist drive by the Court, during which many programs and practices, given government sanction, were found to have religious purposes or effects and thus invalidated. AND SO THIS NOTION OF THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE IS TOTALLY ANTITHETICAL TO WHAT OUR JUDEO-CHRISTIAN HERITAGE GIVEN TO US BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS. Christianity teaches that not only individuals, but societies, governments and countries must be subject to the kingship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Masonry wants to separate religion from public life in an effort to secularize public life in publics schools, etc. Masonry has been very vocal about this and we have seen this at the highest levels of our government. Visit: “MASONRY UNMASKED: An Insider Reveals the Secrets of the Lodge”, by John Salza (http://www.scripturecatholic.com/MU.pdf), and “Why Catholics Cannot Be Masons”, by John Salza.

“The separation of Church and State, brought about largely by Freemasonry, is evidence that Masonry is succeeding in it’s effort to bring about a New World Order of secularism.” – John Salza.

“REMEMBER THAT CHRISTIANITY AND MASONRY ARE ESSENTIALLY IRRECONCILABLE, SUCH THAT TO JOIN ONE IS TO DIVORCE THE OTHER.” - POPE LEO XIII

FREEDOM OF RELIGION IS UNDER ATTACK! Chuck Colson is sounding the alarm: The government - at the highest levels - may be attempting to redefine the very meaning of religious freedom. If what Secretary of State Hilary Clinton said in a recent speech reflects a new direction in government policy, it seems the aim is clear: To kick faith out of the public square, to send Christians into the closet.

The use of the term “worship” in Roosevelt's days would not have had the significance it does today. There were virtually no cases threatening free exercise in the 30s and 40s. Every school had prayer and Bible studies; the presence of God was firmly lodged in our culture and in our collective consciousness. THE RASH OF CASES ATTACKING PUBLIC EXPRESSIONS OF RELIGION BEGAN IN THE LATE 40’S INTO THE 50’S, AND THEN HIT US LIKE A TRUCK IN THE 60S. When Roosevelt used the phrase it was interchangeable. Today it is certainly not. Watch the video clip of Chuck Colson’s “Two Minute Warning” which explains what is really meant by the words of Hillary Clinton at Georgetown University on December 14, 2009 regarding the Human Rights Agenda for the 21st Century! (http://www.colsoncenter.org/the-center/the-chuck-colson-center/two-minute-warning).

In the “Denver Catholic Register” George Weigel wrote: “The Erosion of Religious Freedom”. “RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, RIGHTLY UNDERSTOOD, CANNOT BE REDUCED TO FREEDOM OF WORSHIP. Religious freedom includes the right to preach and evangelize, to make religiously informed moral arguments in the public square and to conduct the affairs of one’s religious community without undue interference from the state. If religious freedom only involves the freedom to worship, then, as noted above, there is “religious freedom” in Saudi Arabia, where Bibles and evangelism are forbidden but expatriate Filipino laborers can attend Mass in the U.S. embassy compound in Riyadh.” (http://catholicexchange.com/2010/02/11/126942/).

SATAN ONLY HAS POWER OVER EACH OF US AND OVER GROUPS OF PEOPLE TO THE DEGREE THAT WE FREELY CHOOSE TO PRAY LESS AND SIN MORE. By now the forces of evil have taken control of the wealth of the world, the means of communication, educational systems and even most religious institutes. Satan and his followers have always sought to lead others in their direction. But as the author above points out, the more we heed to the beckoning of evil, the more the social apparatuses and the motors of the culture fall into the hands of these forces. Evil progresses when good men do nothing. Certainly there have been for centuries well organized groups such as the Freemasons more closely working for the prince of darkness. BUT THERE ARE TODAY MORE AND MORE GROUPS ALIGNING THEMSELVES IN BUILDING THE ULTIMATE TOWER OF BABEL IN TOTAL REBELLION AGAINST GOD! THUS, THERE IS AN ACCELERATION TODAY TOWARDS OUR DESTRUCTION. WE ARE APPROACHING AN AVALANCHE OF DISASTER AS IT IS IN HELL! Soon we will enter the greatest period of tribulation in the history of the world, past or future (Mt 24:21), and then the Church, the Bride of Christ, will purified. On one occasion, Archbishop Fulton Sheen did not take his lunch offered on board an airplane because it was Friday, the day Christ died for our sins. The woman next to him said she would do the same. When Sheen commented: “Oh, are you also Catholic?” She replied: “No, I AM A WITCH, and I fast so that there might be more abortions!” It is too bad that those who follow Satan and those at the higher level who even worship Satan are not as forthright as this witch that responded to Archbishop Sheen! But today one of the most important strategies of Satan is to convince people that Satan and hell do not exist, and then to convince people that what they think in their little heads is reality! THE TYRANNY OF RELATIVISM!

THOSE WHO FOLLOW CHRIST CARRY THEIR CROSS DAILY WITH JOY (LK 9:23). THOSE WHO FOLLOW SATAN, BLASPHEME WHEN THEY ARE FORCED TO SUFFER (except dedicated witches and warlocks who worship and sacrifice for Satan!). True Christians recognize, embrace and love Christ crucified in their sufferings within themselves and outside of themselves. The more one is close to Christ, the more one shares in His redemptive sufferings to help others convert and persevere in following the author of Life. The more one follows Satan in ones ego and sins, the more one suffers for a totally different reason and motive and becomes insanely blind to truth and reality as are those in hell; they contribute to the destruction of others. Christians offer sacrifices to further the kingdom of God. Egotists contribute toward the kingdom of Satan. The separation is becoming ever more black and white, with less and less gray in between. In the end there will be an eternal separation of love and hate!

“BARACK OBAMA IS A 32ND DEGREE PRINCE HALL MASON!!”; (http://endtimedeception.ning.com/forum/topics/barack-obama-is-a-32nd-degree).

Look what they tried to do in the STATE OF CONNECTICUT in March 2009! For those unaware of what occurred, the incident revolved around a proposed state bill (S.B. 1098) that would change the way Catholic churches in the state are governed. The bishops argued that its provisions would have removed their ability to oversee their dioceses and individual pastors their parishes by dictating, among other things, that local congregations be allowed to elect 7 to 13 members of local parish boards. These boards would be the ultimate authority on all financial, legal and administrative issues and would, in effect, take control of the church from the hands of the bishops and priests and hand it over to the laypersons who sit on these boards.
Many times we have heard and lamented over the remark that the Catholic Church is but a "sleeping giant" and how often have we prayed that She awaken soon in time to save both our country and the world.

Bridgeport Bishop William E. Lori scathingly called the proposition an "irrational, unlawful and bigoted bill [that] jeopardizes the religious liberty of our church, and is a thinly veiled attempt to silence the Catholic Church." He went on to say that "the bill violates the First Amendment and by disconnecting parishes from their own pastors and bishops, runs contrary to the beliefs of the Catholic Church."

After a well organized defense by the Church in Connecticut, the bill unceremoniously died after several days of intense debate and heated words; the public hearing on the legislation was abruptly cancelled by its sponsors. But what is interesting is the manner in which this reprehensible proposal came to die.

One only needs to look at what happened in Connecticut to realize that perhaps there is real hope that our beloved "SLEEPING GIANT" has not only awakened but is up on one knee. But this giant better hurry up and awake because there will be many more stones thrown at Her before it is all over!

“THE LIST OF SERIOUS CHALLENGES TO OUR CULTURE GOES ON AND ON. We are living, as the enigmatic Chinese proverb says, in “interesting times.” And interesting is an interesting word. Its etymological roots are in the Latin words inter (between) and esse (to be).
When one considers how vastly different our modern society is when compared with the society in which our parents and grandparents lived, as recently as the 1950s, I do not think it is an exaggeration to say that this “interesting” time in which we live is an epoch that is between goodness and evil and, it would seem steadily drifting away from the former and toward the latter. …” (http://envoymagazine.com/email.100members.html).

Have you ever read the following short poem?

FIRST THEY CAME
"First they came ..." is a famous statement attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group. The text expresses, in a condensed form, the understanding of history presented by Niemöller in a January 6, 1946 speech before representatives of the Confessing Church in Frankfurt, Germany.

"THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up."
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came...)

Let us modify this brief poem for today:
FIRST THEY CAME for the unborn, and I did not speak out because I was not an unborn.
THEN THEY CAME for the frail and the disabled, and I did not speak out because I was not frail and disabled.
THEN THEY CAME for the mentally challenged, and I did not speak out because I was not mentally challenged.
THEN THEY CAME for the sick and the aged, and I did not speak out because I was not sick or aged.
THEN THEY CAME for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

WHAT A CHALLENGE. What applies to this rousing of those in the face of Nazism must be echoed today as we face the challenges of our society. Those threats to the lives of the unborn, the frail, the vulnerable, to all of those in need of our defense. It is not just about putting our charity into action, as important as that is. But there is a reality that if we do not stem the tide, the tide, like a tsunami, will flood all of us, and wash us away. WE ARE CALLED TO STAND, to stand on the rock of truth, on the rock of faith. We must play our part. We must be courageous and wholehearted.

41. The “Theocracy” Of “Atheism”?!?It is true that no particular denomination or belief system should dictate their tenants or beliefs much as the Church of England did or the Catholic church did in Spain. But most of us do want believers to influence our country rather than non believers to influence our country. WHY CAN WE NO LONGER PRAY IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS OR HAVE MONUMENTS OF THE 10 COMMANDMENTS OR A NATIVITY SCENE IN PUBLIC? Why can we not mention the name of God as if His Holy Name is a curse word? Why has the religion of atheism dominated in our recent history? OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD NEVER HAVE DREAMED of such a prohibition. Our founding fathers would never have dreamed of letting an extremely small minority of people, like Madeline Murray O'Hare and others like her, to take away from all “free Americans” our freedom to pray in our American public schools. Our founding fathers would never have dreamed of legalizing abortion! Our founding fathers would never have dreamed of the possibility of our national government to even consider taking away the freedom of conscience for those doctors and hospitals who believe that it is murder to kill an unwanted, unborn human being! Is this not even worse than what the Church of England imposed on their subjects over 200 years ago? Our founding fathers would never have dreamed of the false interpretation of “separation of church and state” as it is used today to promote atheism.
Visit: “A Courageous High School Principal”; (http://god-politics.blogspot.com/2009/11/courageous-high-school-principal.html).

I see this stamped toward irresponsible “freedom” and personal pleasure (i.e., no regard for ones neighbor, especially the weaker ones) and the rejection of God far more of a danger today than falling into a theocracy, as some people fear. But we must remember that freedom can be enslaved. Freedom is not being able to do anything we want to do. “Everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin” (Jn 8:34). Freedom has limits. When we abuse freedom, we step outside the boundary set by GOD, and we suffer the consequences. Is a train more free off the railroad tracks or on the railroad tracks? Are we more free on the “tracks” of the Ten Commandments which one finds on the walls of our national government buildings (soon to be taken down!!!), or are we more free at the mercy and whims of political leaders and activist judges who make it all up as they go along? Are children in a nursery school more free if they go outside of the protecting fences and wander into the busy streets? These liberals offer beautiful words like “Freedom of Choice (Act)”, “Pro Choice”, etc. But is not behind these slogans of “freedom” and “rights” A GREAT, DECEPTIVE LIE? The devil is “a liar and the father of lies” (Jn 8:44)! Only the Creator offers true and lasting freedom (Jn 8:32)! “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed” (Jn 8:36).

The U.S. government has been forced to acknowledge atheism as a religion; this has helped to slow down this use of the false proclamation of “separation of church and state” to justify the promotion of atheism since atheism too is a “religion”. I agree with those who fear a “theocracy” but perhaps NOT in the way that they might have considered. Are we able to imagine the incredible tyranny of a “THEOCRACY” of the religion of “ATHEISM”??? “The truth shall set you free”! Only God can give true and lasting freedom. If we do not follow God and His laws of love of God and neighbor, we will end up being slaves to ourselves, to the world or to the devil. This is true slavery under the DICTATORSHIP OF A “THEOCRACY” OF ATHEISM!
Human beings who are made by God have an innate need for religion. Satan knows this and thus does not try to eradicate religion but rather offer a pseudo religion, a counterfeit Christianity without the cross of Christ incarnate in our lives. It will be a religion with beautiful words and trappings to hide the real substance of egoism and lack of self sacrifice in loving others, especially the weakest human beings.

HURRAY FOR THE TEXAS SCHOOL BOARD!
“Texas board adopts new social studies curriculum (Austin, Texas). Texas schoolchildren will be required to learn that the words "separation of church and state" aren't in the Constitution and evaluate whether the United Nations undermines U.S. sovereignty under new social studies curriculum. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/22/AR2010052200911.html).

BUT BY NOW, WE ARE NO LONGER A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY. We have sanctioned 50 million abortions in the last 37 years; a country that supports a 12 billion dollar pornography industry; a country where condoms are handed out to students in the public schools; a country that is in the process of legalizing homosexual couples using the word marriage…

If one studies THE WORDS AND THE INTENT OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS, this idea of “separation of church and state” did not have anything to do with what they are talking about today. Even the framing of the question is fallacious. Remember where our founding fathers came from. They came from England and they were oppressed. There was one church; it was the church of England. And they wanted to keep the state out of the affairs of the Church more than anything. THEY WANTED TO INSURE THAT FREEDOM OF RELIGION, whatever religion that you choose, IS SAFEGUARDED. The place that one finds this phrase is in the Soviet Union’s constitution. Our constitution does not have, and will not have hopefully, separation of Church and state in the way that these Godless egotists in our government want and continue to propagate with tremendous force and perseverance. Our USA constitution stipulates the NON ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION BY THE CONGRESS.

42. The Vicious Attacks on the Catholic ChurchAs we all know, there have been vicious and outlandish attacks against the Catholic Church in the last few months, in particular against the Pope. At what point have we arrived in the agenda and strategy of the New World Order?

No one in the senior leadership of the Catholic Church in the last decade has done more to deal with what he himself once called the “filth inside the Church” than Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and now Pope Benedict XVI. Another thing that needs to be emphasized is THAT THERE IS NO SEX ABUSE CRISIS IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN THE U.S. The Catholic Church in the U.S. is a community of 68 million people. There were 6 credible reports of sexual abuse of under 18 year olds in the Church last year. That is six too many; one is too many! But amidst this global plague of the physical and sexual abuse of young people, the Catholic Church is the safest environment for young people in America today.

Many of the cases are 20 or 30, in some cases 50 plus years ago, and unfortunately, many of them were badly handled at the time. As Catholics, we must concede that and to frankly admit it. But this Pope has said this; and his predecessor said this. Pope Benedict XVI has personally met with and apologized to the victims of sexual abuse here in the U.S. His letter to the Church in Ireland was stern, sharp and pastorally sensitive. The Pope even told Irish abuse victims that he can understand why the very thought of walking into a church repulses them today, while asking them to have faith in the healing power of the risen Christ. And he pulled no punches in that statement. He talked about the errors of the Church in focusing more on the public image of the Church rather than what actually happened to these individuals.

In the weeks and months ahead, I believe we are going to see a massive systematic reconstruction of Irish Catholicism, new leadership, perhaps across the board, restructuring of dioceses. This has not ended in Ireland as far as Benedict XVI is concerned. He is absolutely determined to do in Ireland what has been done here in the U.S. over the last 8 years where the problem has been solved. And people need to know that. THE IMAGE THAT IS BEING CREATED, THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS A GLOBAL CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY OF SEXUAL ABUSERS AND THEIR ABETTORS, IS A FALSE IMAGE. This can be demonstrated empirically. But the image is being created to advance other agendas, with the attorneys behind a lot of it as well as those in the public sphere who consider the Church a major obstacle to some of their utopian visions of society.

If you go to the Vatican website you can find a very large number of statements of Benedict XVI on all of this (http://www.vatican.va/resources/index_en.htm, etc.). The notion that the Pope has not spoken of this is really quite silly, as was saying that Archbishop Weakland did not do anything for 15 years. The fact that a plaintiff’s attorney with a direct financial interest in the case, personal financial interest in the case, working on a contingent fee bases, is regarded as a credible source is simply incredible. I THINK THE NY TIMES REALLY FOULED ITS OWN CREDIBILITY NEST WITH THAT STORY. It seems that story has basically died, although in the way these things go, the sad fact is that mud sticks. The point of this narrative lie that has been developed is two fold: 1) It is to disempower, to disable, to cripple the Pope as an effective public moral witness in the world. 2) It is to create this impression in people’s minds that the Church is a global criminal conspiracy of child abusers and their enablers headquartered in the Vatican such that any reasonable legal system, it is claimed, would be able to go after the Holy See seeking damages for the enabling or the covering up of this abuse. THIS IS A COMPLETE STRUCTURE OF FALSEHOODS BUT IT IS WHAT IS BEING SOLD RIGHT NOW.

Every abuse case is being reopened and essentially tried in the pages of the NY Times or in the AP. This can go on for a very long time because there are an unfortunately large number of these ponds that people can try to fish in. THE ARIZONA STORY IS COMPLETE NONSENSE. The Church followed the proper procedures which were followed much more quickly than the carrying out of a capital sentence in the U.S. which can sometimes take 15 or 20 years from the trial to the execution. The Church laicized the priest which is an ecclesiastical capital sentence, a death sentence. What is happening here is a rollout strategy. IN LAW SCHOOLS TODAY, the professors tell us that students are taught if you are a plaintiff’s attorney and you do not have a particularly strong case, you can strengthen your case by ginning up a public campaign on behalf of your client, which will change the atmosphere for the jury, for the judge, for whatever the circumstance may be. That is what is going on here. This is a slow rollout in which cases that have been settled years ago, in some cases decades ago, will be pawed over in order to keep alive this story line of the global criminal conspiracy centered in the Vatican. Meanwhile, the fact that the Church in the U.S. has dealt vigorously and firmly and effectively with these problems is being ignored. Pope Benedict taking the Irish situation in hand and other situations around the world are not just going to be reported on.

In the Arizona story, the media and the attorneys are even focusing on the Church procedure. Suddenly we have the secular authorities looking into public churches dealing with its own. We are not talking about if these priests were handed over to the law enforcement, which appears that they were. The tactical shifts are all in aid of the same strategical objective: namely, paint the Church as a global criminal conspiracy of abusers and their abettors.

There is this narrative that these plaintiffs attorneys are trying to create that the Church is part of some global conspiracy to protect molesters and that they conspire not only to protect them but to move them and keep them going for many years. They are saying that the Vatican has to defend itself in an Oregon and a Kentucky case, to get to the money from the Vatican rather from the diocese. There were already rumbles in 2002 to make the Vatican liable for damages.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF EXTRAORDINARY MISCONCEPTIONS BEHIND THIS. The Catholic Church is not a billion member global high school in which the Pope is the prefect of discipline. This is quite absurd! The Church is not a giant multinational corporation with a dictatorial CEO. The Church is not the U.S. Marine Corp with the Pope as the commandant and when he says jump everybody salutes and jumps. It just does not work that way. The Oregon case is based on a rather bizarre claim that every parish priest in the world is, for purposes of U.S. law, to be considered an employee of the Pope. This is absolutely ludicrous under any canon law or civil law.

THE QUESTION IN THE KENTUCKY CASES involves whether people could be moved around without the Vatican approval, etc. This will end up in the Supreme court of the U.S. It will be very difficult to imagine that our present Supreme court will agree that the Sovereign unity of the Holy See is to be waved here.

BUT THIS IS ALSO GOING ON IN EUROPE where you have attorneys moving from other parts of the world, like a character named Jeffrey Robertson moving from Australia to England trying to introduce American style tort law into England and now declaring that the Pope should be tried in an international criminal court. THIS IS COMPLETE INSANITY! Even the Europeans are probably not so crazy to buy that, or at least we hope so. But that is the nature of the game here. Jeffrey Robertson is a UN judge as well and he claims in several articles that the Pope should be denied immunity, even though he is head of a Sovereign State, that he is not immune to the international criminal court which is there for human rights offences. This is all in aid of this financial agenda, in part. But it is also in aid of the secularist agenda. THERE IS A EUROPE TODAY, AND INDEED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, AN EXTRAORDINARILY AGGRESSIVE FORM OF CHRISTOPHOBIA. The Orthodox Jewish legal scholar Joseph H.H. Weiler coined the term "Christophobia" to describe the irrational contempt with which much of European high culture regards Christianity; Weiler also flagged eight sources of this derangement: … (http://brothersjuddblog.com/archives/2010/05/). Because Christianity, and specifically the Catholic Church, is the last obstacle still standing on the chess board to a sweep of the board by the forces of what Joseph Ratzinger once called the “dictatorship of relativism”. The marriage question is engaged here, the life issues are engaged here. THIS IS ALL OF A PIECE. Many are not willing to consider the possibility of some vast international conspiracy to bring down the Catholic Church even though they know that there are many people with coordinated interests who see in each others assault on the Church support for their own agenda. It is interesting and rather telling for those who are observing the situation with an open mind that the NY Times and the AP do not take on Pope Benedict in the realm of reason and truth because they know they are no match at all to be able to point out to the world supposed errors in the encyclicals of the recent Popes. But beyond this, these cowardly detractors are running from the truth into their convenient relativism so as to do and live anyway they feel like with no reference to a God outside of themselves, which most of them proclaim as a superfluous and non-existent being invented by us poor stupid simpletons, as Marx wrote.

According to press reports, a 1962 VATICAN DOCUMENT indicated that the Vatican shielded from public scrutiny priests who were charged and found guilty and kept private in the realms of the chanceries and the Vatican: George Weigel & Rev. Jay Scott Newman took this apart in the “NATIONAL REVIEW ON LINE” showing very clearly that this is a total misrepresentation. “Spreading the Big Lie - Why did the Washington Post choose Palm Sunday to publish an ignorant and malicious piece by Sinead O’Connor on abuse in the Catholic Church?” (http://article.nationalreview.com/429663/spreading-the-big-lie/george-weigel-br-rev-jay-scott-newman).

Many people want to paint the picture of a global criminal conspiracy centered in the Vatican using the POP CULTURE AND THE MEDIA TO CREATE A SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE POPE. Let us hope that there are still some people with an innate sense of fairness.

“Infographic: The Catholic Church's International Sex-Abuse Cover-up” (http://www.fastcompany.com/1620638/infographic-the-catholic-churchs-international-sex-abuse-coverup).

George Weigel wrote about: “Vicious editorial cartoons, some perilously reminiscent of Nazi-era anti-Catholic cartooning, abound.” (“Church gets an unfair rap - Pope has been at forefront of change”; http://www.philly.com/inquirer/currents/89856732.html#axzz0qTSdNC00). George is a distinguished senior fellow of Washington's Ethics and Public Policy Center and the author of “The Courage To Be Catholic: Crisis, Reform, and the Future of the Church”.

THINGS ARE BEING REPORTED TOTALLY OUT OF CONTEXT. You would imagine that 40 or 50% of the clergy are guilty or accused of sex abuse against minors. In fact we are talking about 4% at the height of this scandal over a period of 50 years. This is certainly not new to attack the Church and its representatives; it is enough to study a little history. Many people have rejected the Church or left the Church in the last 2000 years due to the sins and scandals of the Church’s representatives, even though they are not to keen on recognizing their own sins. Many people who are looking for an excuse to live anyway they want are quick to say after reading the NY Times and other articles in the AP attacking the Catholic Church in such a biased and bigoted way: “WHY SHOULD I TRY TO BE GOOD IN THAT CHURCH WHEN THERE IS SO MUCH SCANDAL!” This is one of our primary tests throughout history of deciding to trust ourselves or to trust God. The intelligent and wise today believe they have a better idea! But Christ, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity incarnate, founded His Church on twelve men who were sinners; the first Pope denied Jesus three times and did all kinds of other stupid and not too virtuous things. Of course we are more intelligent and wise than Christ; we would have called down 12 angels from heaven to found a church, or rather twelve “self-righteous” and “perfect” men like us to found a “perfect church”! Why should I confess my sins to a man who is a sinner like me? Because that is the way the infinite Second Person of the Trinity incarnate, Jesus Christ, decided to offer, in the normal way, His mercy through His human instruments! “I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes” (Mt 11:25; Lk 10:21).

“When Christ at a symbolic moment was establishing His great society, He chose for it’s cornerstone neither the brilliant Paul, nor the mystic John, but a shuffler, a snob, a coward – in a word, a man. And upon this rock He has built His Church and the gates of hell have not prevailed against it. All the empires and kingdoms have failed because of this inherent and continual weakness that they were founded by strong men; and upon strong men. But the historic Christian Church was founded on a weak man and for this reason it is indestructible. FOR NO CHAIN IS STRONGER THAN IS WEAKEST LINK.” – G.K. Chesterton.

Jesus: “Nothing is impossible for me, and so for you nothing will become impossible if you let me act through you. Make yourselves as nothing in the eyes of all and I will work great things, make yourselves ‘USELESS SERVANTS’.” (November 2, 2005; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo05eng.html).

There were 290,000 students sexually abused in the American public schools from 1991 to 2000. That is ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE LARGER THAN THE ABUSE IN THE CHURCH over a 50 year period. The other fact that never gets out in all of this is that 40-60%, well over half of sexual abuse, takes place within families, often at the hands of a live-in boyfriend, or a second, third or fourth husband. The breakdown of the marriage culture, no fault divorce, the sexual revolution as a whole, these are the principle forces that have created this global plague of sexual abuse, which of course are promoted by the very ones attacking the Catholic Church. THE REPORTING IS TAKEN IN ISOLATION without looking at accusations of sexual abuse in other faith communities or even in the public schools.

When the Church, which did have problems, and they have been dealt with, continues to be the obsessive focal point of news coverage on this, one has to say, WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON HERE? This is not just the facts. Something else is afoot here. In the past, these types of media attacks were more on the local level; now these onslaughts are much more coordinated at the national and international level with virtually total control of the cultural engines of today’s society: the mass media, the schools at all levels and even religious institutions. These cynical and hypocritical attackers promote the culture of death, freedom detached from truth, which results in all of these crimes, but now they only want to attack the Catholic Church. It reminds me of A REBELLIOUS SPOILED CHILD who is told by his father to amend his sinful behaviour and so the child criticizes without restraint the faults and sins of his father. WE ARE ALL SINNERS, BUT THERE IS A FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SALVATION AND DAMNATION. The saved have enough humility to seek the truth outside of themselves, in creation and hopefully in divine revelation, so as to confront their behaviour with this truth, and then repent, and then confess their sins; the damned do not have nor want this humility so as not to begin a journey of seeking and living the truth, and thus they end up making themselves little gods as does their master and deceitful leader, Satan.

We Catholics should, and now do, rigorously hold ourselves to a higher standard. BUT THE FACT THAT THE NY TIMES HAS NOT SEEN FIT TO TURN INVESTIGATORS AND REPORTERS LOOSE ON WHY THE NY STATE LEGISLATURE HAS BEEN PROTECTING PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS AND THEIR UNIONS FROM ABUSE CHARGES RAISES AN INTERESTING QUESTION. What is the NY Times really interested in here? Are they interested in protecting young people or are they interested in destroying the moral credibility of the Catholic Church? Our more wholesome society of the past tried to help out imprudent authority such as parents, priests and civil leaders for the good of society and for the good of the younger ones. Now people like those running the NY Times are similar to spoiled bratty children who no longer have any respect for their elders or parents and say to their parents: “Why should I do what you tell me to do since you make plenty of mistakes yourself!” The NY Times is basically saying that all parents and religious leaders have no right to speak or preach because they do not totally live what they preach. But does the NY Times, with a certain public voice and influence in society, live what they preach? The NY Times, like totally spoiled, irresponsible children, have no regard for the common good, for others (even though they try to fake “noble motives”) and for the good of our society at large. WHEN WE HAVE ARRIVED TO THIS LOW LEVEL OF MORAL STANDARDS AND DECENCY AND CONCERN FOR THE COMMON GOOD OF THE SOCIETY IN WHICH WE ALL LIVE IN, ALL WILL SOON FALL APART AND COME CRASHING DOWN. The numerous people who willingly listen to this pop culture reportage without going through the fatigue of discerning the truth and then standing up for the truth will be also judged accordingly for letting themselves be scandalized and then willfully becoming part of the destruction of our society and culture and world! Jesus Christ did not found His Church on 12 angels from heaven, but on 12 men who were sinners! Apparently the NY Times, as well as those who eagerly follow this pop culture reportage, feel they know better how to do things than the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity incarnate! Best wishes to them at the moment of death, because they will be in for a big surprise when they are forced to face the fact that reality is not determined by their little conceited heads, but by the Creator Who created all things, including the Truth and the realities of Heaven and Hell for all eternity! If anyone of them find a little humility to convert and turn to their Creator, even at the last instant of their lives, and beg for forgiveness and pardon before they die, they can save their eternal souls; after death, their stubbornness in their pride or their humility to beg for mercy from God will be ratified and confirmed by God for all eternity with no possibility to change anything after death!

BUT THIS INSIDIOUS STRATEGY WORKS; MUD STICKS! This is why these destroyers of lawful authority and of our culture do it! The most fundamental test for every human being is the choice to seek and live the Truth, or not to seek and live the Truth. But many people willingly deceive themselves. We all have been given a conscience by God; but this conscience can be reinforced and more highly tuned toward the Truth or it can be dulled and eventually killed completely in the course of time. God has given us innumerable opportunities to choose Truth and Life which is always associated with self-sacrifice and some suffering, or to choose to avoid or to change the Truth according to our whims to satisfy our egos and pleasure which is the easier and more selfish way, just as our first parents did (Gen 3:4-5).

One of these fundamental opportunities to be able to freely choose, offered to us by God, is that most often God reveals His saving Truth to us by way of other human beings or groups of human beings; He does this so as to respect our free wills without pushing one way or the other. THUS CHRIST FOUNDED HIS CHURCH ON 12 APOSTLES WHO WERE SINNERS, NOT 12 ANGELS FROM HEAVEN. The first Pope, Saint Peter was not born a saint! At the beginning of his walk with Jesus, Peter denied Christ three times and did many other things not very virtuous which are recounted in the Gospels. Christ, the infinite Wisdom incarnate, chose to leave us a Church on earth founded on sinners so as to offer to all men and women throughout time the possibility to find the fullness of Truth and the fullness of the means of sanctification in the Sacraments even though these truths and means of sanctification are transmitted by way of sinners! Most often due to pride, many people are scandalized by the way Christ founded His Church and do not even seek to enter the Church; many leave the Church. But in the Catholic Church one can truly point to one place to find the fullness of truth of Divine Revelation and saving "elements of sanctification" (LG 8) by which the faithful may be configured to Christ. Those of good will with a certain amount of true humility (which is Truth) seek, find and live the Truth even though it is not easy and requires a lot of perseverance and self-sacrifice and especially humility to recognize that we are all sinners, not just the parents, or priests, or bishops who preach or administer the precious Sacraments.

Many Catholics leave the Church after having been scandalized by a priest of other Catholics and then they might say that they are good people because they perhaps do some kind of social work. But MOTHER TERESA would often say: “We are not social workers. We may be doing social work in the eyes of some people, but we must be contemplatives in the heart of the world. For we must bring that presence of God into your family, for the family that prays together, stays together.” (http://www.theworkofgod.org/Saints/Lives/MTeresa.htm; http://www.ewtn.com/library/MARY/HETERCAL.HTM). Here we can all learn from Mother Teresa's sisters, that adoration of Jesus hidden in the Blessed Eucharist is the best way to lead us to HIM hidden in the poor. (http://www.kwl.com.au/httpdocs/Articals/Charity%20or%20Justice.htm).

But many people , at least in a hidden subtle way, do not want to find the uncomfortable and inconvenient Truth so as not to have to change their life, but can live as they wish according to their own desires and self-made standards and truth while “feeling” they are saved without a living conscience to bother them. But often these people who are running from the Truth, still have consciences which are not yet totally dead and killed. Thus they FIND EXCUSES TO AVOID OR CHANGE OR ELIMINATE THE TRUTH, in particular by concentrating on the sins and faults and scandals of the lawful representatives in the Catholic Church so as to falsely justify for themselves to not listen to the teachings of Holy Mother Church. This has happened innumerable times in the history of the Church among individuals and in self-righteous groups which help to reinforce each others desire to be the “Pope”. Christ promised to Peter and to all of his successors: “You are Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail” (Mt 16:18). This promise, which offers the certitude of the fidelity of the official teachings of the Church on faith and morals, is not based on the virtues or on the life style or human attributes of the living Pope, but on the promise of Christ! This promise is also only given to the living Pope, not to bishops or priests as history has given ample testimony.

This setting aside the Truth happens not only among Christians, but among all people and groups. An example pointed out in this article is how KARL MARX, AND SO MANY AFTER HIM, USED A FAULTY, ATHEISTIC THEORY OF EVOLUTION BY CHARLES DARWIN TO PROMOTE HIS REVOLUTION. Karl Marx was not in anyway interested in the Truth, but rather in his program and plan of revolt; he used whatever he could get his hands on the further his cause including radical feminism. Thus these attacks against the Pope and the Catholic Church are useful to influence the numerous uncommitted people on the fence, who have not put Christ in the first place in their lives, to be swayed toward becoming willing accomplices, or consenters by silence, in the destruction of our Judeo-Christian culture so as to bring as many people as possible much more quickly to world domination under the New World Order, without the Truth! IT IS SO EASY TO FOOL OURSELVES! There are thousands of independent Christian groups who interpret the Bible in their own way, often in contradictory ways, even though there is but one Bible, one God and one Jesus Christ. Christ knew this would happen and so He left us His official voice and authority on earth, the Catholic Church, with the Pope as the head. BUT IT TAKES HUMILITY TO SUBMIT OUR WILLS TO THE WILL OF CHRIST WHO SPEAKS THROUGH HIS VICAR ON EARTH. We are living in very confusing times in which we have let Satan lead us to fully embrace and fall into the blinding trap of the “tyranny of relativism” so that we no longer even desire to find the saving and freeing Truth because we no longer even realize that Truth, with a big “T”, exists. Most people have their truth, with a little “t”; you have your truth and I have mine! We have willingly allowed Satan and his followers to convince us that there is no absolute Truth, all is relative, so we can live anyway we want to with no negative consequences. THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE (Jn 8:32)! “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me” (Jn 14:6).

MANY PEOPLE HAVE COME TO THE DEFENSE OF THE POPE citing that of all the people in the Vatican, no one was more determined to root out this sort of “filth” in the Church as Ratzinger, and now Pope. The charge has now begun to float to the top that perhaps Pope John Paul II demands a second look and perhaps this will damage his credibility.

POPE JOHN PAUL II HAD SPENT HIS ENTIRE PONTIFICATE TRYING TO STRENGTH THE PRIESTHOOD AND LIFT UP A NOBLE IDEAL OF THE PRIESTHOOD. Thus, once he understood what was going on in regards to Cardinal Law and other such cases, he was very vigorous. He said to the American cardinals in April 2002: “There is no place in the Church for people who would harm the young.” Under his leadership, with Ratzinger as the operational head, the new norms were put in place, by which true abusers would be summarily dealt with and quickly laicized. Procedures were put in place to make sure that this kind of thing would not happen in the future. It always has to be remembered, in thinking about Pope John Paul II, the charges of sexual impropriety, either homosexual or heterosexual, were a standard feature of communist secret police for attacks on the polish clergy who were opposing the regime at the time. No one who has had the slightest experience of Pope John Paul II as a man, priest, bishop and pope, imagines that he would had been anything other than horrified by sexually predatory clergy, or that he would have been anything other than extremely firm in trying to stamp this out. “The End and the Beginning: Pope John Paul II--The Struggle for Freedom, the Last Years, the Legacy” by George Weigel.

“Aboard The Papal Flight To Portugal” (CNS) – “Pope Benedict XVI said the priestly sex abuse scandal is a "terrifying" crisis that comes from inside the church -- not from an outside attack -- and requires purification and penance to overcome.” (http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/1001965.htm)

The procedures have been put in place now so that children are protected in the Church and offenders do not go on and on by getting shuffled around. But the moral voice of the Church is seriously impeded as a result of this. HOW DO WE REGAIN THAT MORAL STANDING AND VOICE GIVEN THE POP CULTURE REPORTAGE AND THE EMPHASIS ON THESE CRIMES? We have to keep speaking the truth in charity and with vigor and firmness. We have to tell our own story better. There is no global institution that does more for young people and children than the Catholic Church in terms of education, health care, foster care, etc. And we have to name anti-Catholic bias and bigotry for what it is. The attempt to drive the Church out of the public square by painting it as a hypocritical global criminal conspiracy of sexual predators and their abettors has to be challenged. We do that both through our own media, by trying to be as present as we can in the general media, and by getting on with the great service the Church provides to children and young people throughout the world.

43. Renewal of the ChurchOur Lady of Fatima said that we could still avert this TERRIBLE PUNISHMENT on all of humanity if there were enough prayers, sacrifices and penance offered to God. But Pope John Paul II, commenting on the 3rd Secret of Fatima while conversing with a small group of pilgrims in the cathedral square of Fulda, West Germany, in November 1980, said: "We have to be prepared to suffer, before long, great trials which will require of us the disposition to sacrifice even our life for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is still possible to diminish this trial, BUT IT IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE TO AVERT IT, because only in this manner can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the RENEWAL OF THE CHURCH BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT IN BLOOD! It will not be different this time."
Cardinal Ratzinger sheds light on what Pope John Paul II meant by a “New Springtime” to come. (http://www.ewtn.com/library/issues/ratzintv.htm).

“I am truly dismayed that so many still are not open to this reality soon to come and that they are still convinced that all is far off! They are deceived if they think like this, because when suddenly My Arrival will be, THEY WILL NOT YET BE READY. (07/02/2002; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa9902eng.html).

“Jesus: “Come, daughter, to write for Me the Words of Heaven. My dear daughter, thank you for your availability to listen to My Word. It is Word that saves and it gives certitude of my arrival among you. This will happen soon, dear child, very soon, be certain of this. MY INFINITE LOVE FOR ALL OF YOU, CANNOT WAIT ANY LONGER, too many are those who are moving away from the Holy Sheep-fold!”. (07/01/2008; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa08eng.html).

Perhaps we could see THE MOTHER OF GOD AS THE VINEDRESSER WHO PLEADED WITH THE OWNER of the vineyard to let the fig tree alone for one more year till he could “dig about it and put on manure. And if it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down” (Lk 13:6-9). Has humanity produced the fruits that the owner of the vineyard expected?

Truly, today, the Body of Christ, the Church, is being re-crucified! Those close to God understand this; St. Francis of Assisi, who suffered tremendously with the great gift of the stigmata, once exclaimed: “LOVE IS NOT LOVED!” Here on earth, we cannot imagine how much God loves each of us! But we are free to reject this love and not correspond with this love in many ways. “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Mt 7:13-14). And the Mother of Jesus, who loves each of us individually more than all the mothers in the world combined for their children, again sheds tears at the foot of the cross for the lose of so many of her dear children for all eternity!

After Our Lady of Fatima showed to the three shepherd children the NUMEROUS SOULS THAT FALL EACH DAY INTO HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY, she told them to offer as many sacrifices as possible, united with prayer and Jesus Crucified, especially in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, so as to offer the grace of conversion to these poor souls who have no one to pray and sacrifice for them. She taught them the prayer to say at the end of each mystery (decade) of the Holy Rosary: “Oh, my Jesus, forgive us our sins; save us from the fires of hell; lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy Mercy.”

Pope John Paul II wrote: "IT IS SUFFERING, more than anything else, which clears the way for the grace which transforms human souls. Suffering, more than anything else, makes present in the history of humanity the powers of the Redemption. In that 'cosmic' struggle between the spiritual powers of good and evil, spoken of in the Letter to the Ephesians (Eph 6:12), human suffering, united to the suffering of Christ, "constitutes a special support for the powers of good, and opens the way to the victory of these salvific powers" (“On the Christian Meaning of Human Suffering”, n.27; Feb. 11, 1984). To the world Good Friday was an abysmal failure; the disciples of Emmaus went away as so many today do not find meaning in life because they have not discovered one of the greatest mysteries and keys to life: suffering recognized, embraced and loved in union with Christ Crucified! Many people like “happy hours” at the bar, but not “joy hours” filled with the fruits of the Holy Spirit especially by way of embraced suffering in Jesus Crucified.

As CS LEWIS said, GOD whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but SHOUTS to us in our PAIN. Jesus is there for us, and while suffering does not cease to exist, what Jesus has done is take away all the power of suffering, he strengthens us in mind or faith or body, and helps us get through it. Jesus will not stand by when we suffer: he is there to take the brunt of our suffering Himself, as He did on the cross. The answer to pain is Jesus' being by our side when we pray. God's goodness comes through pain.

“BUT WE PREACH CHRIST CRUCIFIED, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men and the weakness of God is stronger than men” (1Cor 1:23-25)!

44. The “Tyranny Of Relativism”These liberals promote the philosophical idea of PLURALISM that all ideas are equal and good. But this undercuts the opinion of the majority or what it means to be an American as well as the fact that there are legitimate emphasis and a hierarchy of values and truths. They say that they do not want everybody fighting so as to justify their claim that all ideas must be equally accepted. But this rejection of the difference of values, even from divine Revelation, ends up becoming in the society “might makes right”! Those in power can then manipulate the situation with various power plays. The atheistic or rather anti-God and anti-human ACLU certainly demands that people listen to and obey them, but there are no members of the ACLU that are willing to die for their cause as martyrs as so many Christians have done! G. K. CHESTERTON said: “When people loose their faith, they do not believe in nothing; they will believe in anything.” He also wrote: “Joining the Catholic Church does not mean leaving off thinking but learning how to think!” A few Protestant churches in Australia and Canada tried total pluralism in their congregations but the PEOPLE WALKED AWAY since the church leaders did not stand up for any particular position. This is a type of false ecumenism. This threatens the necessary unity of faith which Jesus prayed for (Jn 17) and what St. Paul urged for the early Christians (Eph 4:3, 13). Pluralism is actually radical relativism which leads to what Pope Benedict XVI refers to as the “tyranny of relativism”? If all is relative, then so too is relativism!

Relativism, according to Pope Benedict XVI, is "the most profound difficulty of our time." Pope John Paul II said it is a leading cause for lack of evangelistic and missionary zeal. And the late Allan Bloom, author of the controversial bestseller “The Closing of the American Mind”, said it is the only thing that many university students believe in. “Relativism Seen as Snare for Evangelization”; (http://www.zenit.org/article-27570?l=english).

In his homily at the Mass preceding the conclave that quickly elected him Pope Benedict XVI, then Cardinal Ratzinger said that "relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and ‘swept along by every wind of teaching,’ looks like the only attitude [acceptable] to today’s standards." HE WARNED: "WE ARE MOVING TOWARD A DICTATORSHIP OF RELATIVISM WHICH DOES NOT RECOGNIZE ANYTHING AS FOR CERTAIN AND WHICH HAS AS ITS HIGHEST GOAL ONE’S OWN EGO AND ONE’S OWN DESIRES." (http://www.ignatiusinsight.com/features2005/colson_relativism_may05.asp)

When a society throws out the laws and absolute truth from God and the greater majority of people convince themselves that all is relative (except relativism!), then the society goes very quickly toward the law of force and strength: MIGHT MAKES RIGHT! The “law of the jungle” becomes the norm of default. It leads to totalitarianism! When knowledge is separated from love, the powerful dominate and the weak suffer. You might say that relativism forms it’s own type of “gospel” in opposition to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is the “tyranny of relativism”! You can be sure, though, that “MIGHT” on earth, as well as in hell with the cruel dictator, Satan, is not relative! Just as in heaven, as well as on earth, LOVE is not relative either!

There is also the interior “tyranny of relativism”. We know that, in these modem times, to renounce asserting our independence and autonomy and to open ourselves to the power of God is often considered to be a humiliation or a form of alienation. The fact is, however, that by asserting our own independence we become closed within ourselves and in the end we run up against our own finite limitations. Is this not a real tyranny? WHY DO SO MANY GO TO PSYCHOLOGISTS AND PSYCHIATRISTS TODAY (“Sin as insanity”, http://www.tldm.org/news6/insanity.htm; “Depression: sin or disease?”, http://blogs.chron.com/thinkingchristian/2006/11/depression_sin_or_disease_1.html). “Number of Americans taking antidepressants doubles”; http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2009-08-03-antidepressants_N.htm.

If, instead, we open ourselves to God, we welcome into our lives One Who is greater than we are Who can truly help us to fulfill ourselves and find true happiness and joy.

In our times, unfortunately, we can see that in modern man there is a growing tendency to disregard God, because God is considered to be too demanding and uncomfortable. Under the influence of many factors, people want to put God aside by simply eliminating him from their lives as a useless and superfluous being. Behind this attitude there lies a cultural view which takes the conquests of science as its starting point and sets out to convince us that scientific and technological progress will more and more enable man to solve his problems and conquer the world on his own. MODERN MAN THEREFORE THINKS HE IS SELF-SUFFICIENT AND THIS IS HIS GREAT SIN.

A great number of people will say to Jesus at judgment when they see Him face to face: “I DID NOT KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVED ME! I DID NOT KNOW HOW MUCH MY INDIFFERENCE AND INGRATITUDE CAUSED YOU TO SUFFER ON THE CROSS!” How many ungrateful children freely choose to not want to discover or know how much their parents have done and suffered and sacrificed for them. They had willfully decided, step by step, to not seek or not want to find out about the truth. Thus they do not realize how far they have gone from the truth, and so when things totally collapse, they do not understand why! We do not realize how far away we have strayed from God, according to His criteria which He has stamped into our very existence. Not having sought the Truth, we have not discovered that God loves each of us immensely, in a personal way from all eternity, and thus we do not trust God, especially when He asks us, by way of Sacred Scripture explained by His Church, to do things that are difficult and cause us to suffer a lot. But if we trust Jesus, we believe and know that these things are in our best interest even though we may not fully understand why or how. In our blind pride we feel we are good and holy according to our criteria with no reference to reality or divine revelation. So when things become worse than WWI, WWII and all the wars combined together, we will say “How is this possible”, or “God is bad” or “God is Dead”! It is not easy to think and to reason and to seek the truth. The problem is, dead bodies float downstream! Those who want to control us do not want us to think for ourselves. After years of not resisting the well-orchestrated brainwashing and dulling on our minds, so many feel or say today: “Ignorance is bliss!” But it is rather: “DESIRED AND CHOSEN IGNORANCE IS CONDEMNATION!” “The Truth Shall Set You Free” (Jn 8:32)!

“When They Will Have Before Them The Truth Then They Will Understand The Deception Of Their Minds” (January 2, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

But where do people, who have freely and knowingly allowed themselves to slide into relativism, go after they die if they do not repent beforehand? To the heaven that they created? Or have they convinced themselves and others, being little gods (Gen 3:4-5), that heaven does not exist and so they can live as they wish here on earth with no eternal consequences? Have they made themselves the criteria of reality and of salvation? This way of doing things seems to me very risky! WHEN THESE SELF-MADE GODS DISCOVER AFTER DEATH THAT THEY ARE NOT GOD, WHAT WILL HAPPEN? They set themselves up as the criteria of salvation, instead of seeking the true criteria of salvation outside of themselves in God. If these numerous little gods do not find a little humility and seek and work to discover the truth of the existence of God and of His holy commandments while on earth, will God judge them innocent of not corresponding to the design stamped in their hearts of seeking, following and living the truth? After all, they say there is no God! If they are right, no problem. But if they are wrong, what happens? They will be judged severely precisely because they did not seek and accept the TRUTH, who is Jesus Christ, while they were alive on earth.

Eternity is at stake and one cannot change anything after death! For so many people today their own ideas must do, they must have their own way, they are not open to the possibility of a higher truth other than themselves or the creatures that they decide to trust and follow. HUMILITY MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO SEE GOD AND NEIGHBOR! God hides the full reality of heaven and hell, otherwise we would not be able to freely choose to be grateful and loving toward our Creator, or choose to not be grateful and loving toward our Creator. If we could see heaven only for an instant, it would be too incredibly beautiful and attractive to be able to sin again; we would die instantly of joy. If we could see hell for one instant and still live, we would never sin again due to inconceivable freight! Thus in both cases, we would no longer be free! Out of love, God respects and safeguards our free will. God wants to know if we freely choose to seek to know, to love and to serve Him, Who is truth, OR NOT! The greatest joy in heaven is to see the face of God in the beatific vision. The greatest pain in hell is the total separation of the poor creature from it’s Creator for all eternity; this pain is far worse than the incredible fires of hell! (http://www.ewtn.com/library/SPIRIT/LIFE_EV.TXT)

Similarly, if we could see the soul of a person here on earth who is in the state of grace, we would die of joy; if we could see the soul of a person here on earth who is not in the state of grace, we would die of fright. We cannot see these things here on earth and of course the devil does not want us to come to the truth about these things so as to lead us gently and happily and graciously to hell for all eternity with him! AFTER ALL, IT WOULD NOT BE “POLITICALLY CORRECT” TO TALK ABOUT THESE THINGS, EVEN IN OUR CHURCHES AND CATECHISM CLASSES! You might frighten the sweet little darlings! The cultural man handlers have succeeded in creating great pressure on people to not stand out against the godless society, and Satan is laughing with glee!

SO MANY TODAY DO NOT WANT TO POSE TO THEMSELVES THE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS OF LIFE: why am I here; what is the sense of life; nothing comes from nothing and so where did the universe come from; … so as to begin a walk toward the truth of which God has left many tangible traces in His creation and revelation to mankind for those of good will! But without humility, we very easily fall for the primordial, continual and deadly temptation of Satan (Gen 3:4-5), “you will be like god, knowing good and evil!”

WHO DECIDES WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG, GOOD AND EVIL, TRUTH AND REALITY? One has to work very hard every day to stamp out the imprint of the Creator in his heart and to reject the many daily inspirations and graces from God in order to convince himself that God does not exist! Thus when such a person dies, even if he says he does not believe in God, it will be revealed to him in an instant his whole life, including how hard he worked to deny and run from the truth stamped in his heart; this will be his judgment for all eternity! Whether one likes it or not, or believes it or not, man is made in the image of God (Gen 1:26-27). NO ONE GOES TO HELL OR TO HEAVEN FOR ALL ETERNITY BY CHANCE! God will always respect our great gift of our free will and thus will never force anyone to spend eternity with Him in heaven or eternity without Him in hell! God created you without you, but He will not save you without you. The puppets of Satan, the proud modern philosophers, would make us to believe that each person becomes a god so we, by ourselves, decide what is reality and what is truth! The so-called “Age of Reason” actually turned reason on it’s head. There is very little enlightenment found in the “Period of the Enlightenment”! Secular humanism is bankrupt! For a believer in God-Love, René Descartes’ famous supposition “I think therefore I am” should read “I LOVE THEREFORE I AM”! “At that time Jesus declared; “I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes” (Mt 11:25; Lk 10:21).

The foundation of the easy and desirable acceptance of relativism seems to come back to the phrase, “IGNORANCE IS BLISS”! Ignorance of studying how a candidate voted in the past and only listening to nice rhetoric, speeches, promises and smiles IS BLISS. Refusing to discover that a fetus is truly a live human being by seeing an abortion so that we can easily kill “a blob of tissue” IS BLISS! To buy into our contraceptive culture is bliss even though it destroys our marriages. To shove our disagreeable parents or grandparents prematurely down the chute of death to save money and problems, IS BLISS. To interpret the Gospels according to our accommodation and comfort without the cross of Christ in our lives or to ignore the fact that Jesus refers to hell 70 times in the four Gospels which WE DECIDE does not exist, IS BLISS. We warn our child who is running toward an unseen cliff so he does not fall headlong to his death, but we do not want to discover how we will be judged after death according to the ONE who created all things; this IS BLISS. Oh, how happy the devil is today because he has succeeded in convincing so many that he does not exist, nor hell, so we feel we can live as we decide; the devil delights in depriving God of the eternal company of as many of His creatures as possible!

Jesus: “Dear daughter, may you know that soon you will hear to speak of despicable and ‘intolerant’ things about you simple and charitable persons, because THE DEVIL WANTS TO DESTROY ALL THE MINDS AND LEAD YOU TO THE PERDITION OF YOUR HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS IN KNOWING HOW TO DECIDE WHAT IS GOOD AND WHAT IS EVIL”. (July 24, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html).

One person described relativism as locking oneself into his own egoism. But this same person offered THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN PERSON as the answer to violent ideologies and relativism. If we discover a piece of truth today but do not live this piece of truth today, tomorrow we will not be able to recognize or accept the new piece of truth. If we live a piece of truth today, tomorrow we will be able to recognize and accept the new piece of truth. “Change we need!” But God says: “For I the Lord do not change” (Mal 3:6). “Thus says the Lord: ‘Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls” (Jer 6:16).

Popes Pius XII and John Paul II wrote that THE GREATEST SIN IS THE LOSE OF THE SENSE OF SIN! Consider the sorrow and pain of a wife who loves her husband a tremendous amount but her husband does not respond to her love; the more she continues to love, the less he responds and thus the more pain and sorrow for her. Or consider a husband who loves his wife with all his heart and she does not respond. Perhaps this example might give us just a tiny drop of the pain and sorrow that Jesus suffered on the cross 2000 years ago due to our INDIFFERENCE TODAY! Very often there is a tendency to not consider very much the possibility of offending God, much less to cause great pain to God due to our insensitivity and indifference. We say: “After all He is God; He does not need us and besides He is far above all these things!” We forget that the greater the love is, the greater is the pain due to insensitivity and indifference. God who loves each one of us immensely suffers more than we can imagine due to our indifference. One might say how can this be if Jesus already died 2000 years ago? We must remember that for God there is no past or future but only the eternal present. Jesus suffered (“suffers”) not only for the sins of those who lived before and during his crucifixion, but also for all of the sins after his crucifixion. We slough off so easily this fundamental indifference of not responding to love. This is the fundamental definition of sin.

Every time we fall into sin, it is a nail, it is a thorn embedded in the Heart of Mary’s Son, and She cries out to us: “HAVE PITY, HAVE MERCY!”

THE MAJORITY OF CATHOLICS DO NOT EVEN HAVE ONE HOUR A WEEK TO COME TO THE HOLY MASS TO THANK JESUS FOR ALL THAT THEY HAVE RECEIVED FROM HIM: their very existence, their friends, their family, their capacity to have relationships, the death of their loving Savior for each one of us personally...! And then many who do go regularly to Sunday Mass go for their own personal motives and desires and satisfactions but not to seek and do the will of God. Sunday Mass attendance is a precept of the Church, the barebones beginning of practicing ones faith! Can we really pretend to spend eternity with Jesus when we do not have even one hour a week for Him here on earth? Or have we convinced ourselves, with the help of Satan, that hell does not exist, or if it does, we have decided that everyone goes to heaven according to our criteria which is not informed by Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition or any other revelation from God? The only thing that we take with us after death is our relationship or non-RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD and our love or lack of love for Jesus in each neighbor. If there is no relationship with God here on earth, then for all eternity we will have no relationship with Him because whatever relationship or lack of relationship we have with our Creator here on earth will continue for all eternity after our death. BEHOLD WHAT HELL IS; THE TOTAL LACK OF GOD, more painful than all the fires and tortures of hell!

After I finish celebrating the Holy Mass each day, I often go with the other resident priest to the LOCAL BAR IN ITALY for a cup of coffee with milk (cappuccino!). I often talk and joke with the bartender, Robert, who by now I know well. The other day I said to him that this year many people in the world celebrate the invention of the “pill” fifty years ago. I briefly said that the great majority of Catholics fell for this very alluring temptation of separating the marital act from life, from responsibility, which poisoned so many families, “the basic cell of society” (John Paul II). This is the root of the crisis today. Robert responded casually that he uses the pill and everything works out fine for him. I simple replied that today the great majority of people do not even know the difference between love according to the world and love according to Jesus Christ. I said that what is even worse, much worse, is the fact that the great majority of people do not want to know the difference! IGNORANCE IS BLISS! People have lost faith in a God Who loves them immensely and thus no longer trust Him, even when He asks us, by way of His authoritative voice on earth, the Church with the Pope as the head, to do things that are contrary to our desire for comfort and pleasure and to resist the mentality of the world and culture that surrounds us today. “Unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Mt 18:3).

“THE DAWN OF DEMONIC DECEPTION” by Jenn Giroux. “To commemorate the 50th ANNIVERSARY OF "THE PILL" the Wall Street Journal ran a lengthy and misleading article ("The Birth Control Riddle" April 20, 2009) by Melinda Beck, … Today as confirmed Catholics this is all that God is asking of us - to stand in bold witness and poke holes in the spiritual darkness that surrounds us. Encountering the demonic deceptions forwarded by Ms. Beck and others who ignore the devastation wrought by contraception, we must answer with the light of truth.” (http://www.hli.org/index.php/component/acajoom/?act=mailing&task=view&listid=2&mailingid=706).

In our human way of talking here on earth, many people, who have willingly accepted and embraced so many times in their life the great but convenient lies of relativism, will say to Jesus when they die: “I did not know this or that or …” And Jesus will say: “Yes, you did not know, but you willingly chose not to want to know, YOU DID NOT WANT TO DISCOVER THE TRUTH OR THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOVE ACCORDING TO THE WORLD, with so many hidden egotistical motives, and true love that I explained while I was on earth leaving my Church, the Catholic Church with the Pope as the head, to explain true love more clearly through the ages to the end of time.”

With LOVE ACCORDING TO THE WORLD, even outward works that seem praiseworthy, there is always a HIDDEN PERSONAL PROFIT OR ADVANTAGE. With love according to Jesus Christ, it is free, even for our enemies, for the undesirable ones, for the weak, for the unwanted, unborn babies, especially with physical defects, for the old people no longer autonomous and who are often a burden to us and to society, etc.

Jesus told St. Faustina regarding the LUKEWARM AND INDIFFERENT SOULS: "These souls cause Me more suffering than any others; it was from such souls that My soul felt the most revulsion in the Garden of Olives. It was on their account that I said: 'My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass Me by.' The last hope of salvation for them is to flee to My Mercy" (diary 1228).

Oh, how many Christians are “FOUR WHEEL CHRISTIANS” only, four sacraments only, cultural Christians!

"Everyone Against Abortion, Please Raise Your Hand!" (http://www.priestsforlife.org/images/index.aspx). Many want to conveniently believe the lie that abortion is only removing “A BLOB OF TISSUE”, even though with the sonogram we can even see how the baby suffers and tries to defend itself during an abortion! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THS2zZ4m260&NR=1). The baby, the fetus, in the mother, is an independent living human being! At conception, the tiny embryo already has an adult human soul! It is said: “IGNORANCE IS BLISS!” But when one discovers the truth or is given the truth in their heart by God, it is decision time! The truth is for our good! “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon” (Mt 6:24). “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters” (Mt 12:30; Lk 11:23).

“THE LAWS OF GOD DO NOT CHANGE WITH THE PASSING OF TIME, but remain exactly the same as they were written by the Apostles who lived at the side of Jesus, Messiah-Master.” (January 2, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html).

“The Word Of God Does Not Change – It Does Not Mutate – It Does Not Get Old – It Remains In Eternity! (October 2, 2005; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

There was a billboard on the side of a few public buses in Genova, Italy that read: “There is probably NO GOD, SO ENJOY YOUR LIFE.” This seems to insinuate that with God you cannot enjoy life. But it also indicates that perhaps God does exist. If God does not exist, I have lost nothing. If God does exist, then those who live as if God does not exist have lost everything!

“IN HIS DESIGN THERE IS MUCH SALVATION, BUT ALSO MUCH JUST SEVERITY. Peace no longer reigns among you, in the families. Each one thinks only for himself! And that which gives more displeasure is that they are convinced that they are acting well, by wise and educated people (Jn 16:2-4). Poor believers! They are convinced that their truth lies in doing that which pleases and not in mutual respect, in suffering born with together, in convincing themselves that all is overcome with love without hesitation, based on the Commandments and on the text of the Holy Gospel. No, these principles do not make up part of their mentality. THEY DO NOT EVEN WANT TO KNOW! They know and do not accept that one speaks of a God that would make them change life for the better, because they are convinced that they are ‘fables’ from another era. Let us leave them to their way of thinking and they will realize about this. They are foolish and senseless! They will soon know which is the truth!” (Wis 2:21-22) (December 17, 2000; (http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo9902eng.html).

“Oh, how all are far from understanding and listening! They are taken up by the frenzied going in the world, and that which counts more, they do not even realize that they despise ignoring and MAKING ALL ONLY A GOD FOR SELF, MADE-TO-MEASURE. Oh how much will I have to make to suffer, so that there might be in them the decision for the right way; how severe will I have to be, so that they might realize that I am the absolute Master of every created man.” (July 9, 2001; (http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo9902eng.html).

“THE ENEMY IS IN EVERY CORNER OF THE EARTH! Sins are not diminishing, few are those who seek salvation with respect to those who use their will and do not in the least way worry about continually dirtying their soul with an infinite number of sins always more grave! They are so immersed in the chaos of living life in the way that the enemy in imposing on them, that they do not succeed in getting out of this whirl, if in them does not intervene the Divine Grace to open the mind and heart to sin and to the true light to follow. The world is really all muddied. There is not a corner of the earth where my enemy has not placed one of his followers, ready to sow and to administer satanic poison. Relief for the souls will be the Adorations that you will offer!” (September 1, 2002; (http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo9902eng.html).

“Our Instruments of communication, you are chosen children of the Father, that you might bring the Word of truth, but this word is not received by the greater part and WHEN THE WARNING WILL COME, THEIR CHANGE WILL BE DRASTIC, BECAUSE THEY WILL FIND THEMSELVES BEFORE A TOTALLY NEW REALITY. All is different from how they think, to others it will be such a total novelty, being that they never proposed to themselves questions that any man proposes, such as: Where am I going? Why do I exist? And then they adapted themselves to the world just like the wave that follows the thrust of the wind. If they might have had a shred of faith, they could have said: - Well, if all these people have a motive to exist, perhaps I too should try to deal with this problem with a Priest: - Please, I would need light! – And this would be the first step toward salvation. IGNORANCE IS NOT THE CAUSE OF NOT HAVING FAITH, BUT IT IS THE SCARCITY OF INFORMATION THAT IN THE PARISH THEY RECEIVED! We cannot always blame the families, in their turn, the one who formed a family, he was not sufficiently helped along by the PASTORS OF THE CHURCH. And thus, step by step, the FAMILIES FELL APART because they were not formed with cement and iron, but only clayey sand.” (November 14, 2002; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo9902eng.html).

45. The Great Default of Religious Leaders!It is good to know the truth before we die. While alive we can change everything with a good confession and a true change of life; AFTER DEATH NOTHING CAN BE CHANGED FOR ALL ETERNITY! We need more religious leaders and laymen and laywomen to warn us of this eternal trap. Forewarned is forearmed! The Beast will be able to perform "signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect" (Mt 24:24; Mk 13:22; Rev 13:8; 19:20)! If more RELIGIOUS LEADERS had less FEAR OF HUMAN RESPECT and the courage to speak not only about the reality of sin (mortal, grave) and it’s consequences, but also about prophecy in the Bible and about the second coming of Christ, perhaps there would be less people swayed by Jehovah's Witnesses and other cults which speak in a mistaken way about the end of the world!

It is certainly DIFFICULT TO BE RELIGIOUS AND CIVIL LEADERS TODAY. But God gives more help and graces to those in authority if they ask for this help. Thus the judgment on bishops and priests will be very severe in the end if they do not preach the whole truth as taught by the Catholic Church, especially those truths which are uncomfortable and point directly to the need to suffer and to carry the cross of Christ and to avoid sin, such as the great sinfulness of artificial birth control (“Humanae Vitae”, 1968) and abortion. The priest is to bring God to a world that has forgotten God and seeks only power, money and sex! One of the primary jobs of priests is to shake up the great majority of people who feel they are OK and good, like everyone else, but in fact are motivated only by self interest even while doing things that seem good and holy to themselves and to others. So many seek only a terrestrial paradise and freely choose not to discover why they were made. They get comfortable and complacent in their little cottages thus letting the wicked power seekers to go forward in their plan to render us totally their slaves. In a certain sense, these wars and ruthless dictatorships will serve to wake up some of good will that seeking only comfort and security here on earth leads to hell for all eternity. For evil to go forward, it is enough that those of faith do nothing or very little.

It is like the TWO POLES OF A BATTERY. If you preach only about the positive pole that God is love and merciful, which is essential and fundamental, without preaching about the negative pole of the need of sacrifice, the cross of Christ, the reality of mortal sin and hell, the current does not flow! The main tenet of the faith today is to be nice and super tolerant and to avoid strong positions against bad morality, and thus people are not stimulated to dig into the truth. It is much easier and more comfortable to imagine that it is almost impossible to commit a mortal sin as so many modern theologians try to convince us (contrary to CCC 1856-1861). Due to the lack of good preaching and example from our religious leaders, many take the easier path and convince themselves that God does not exist, or no one knows (agnostisim!).

It is certainly more pleasant and agreeable for the pastors, priests and bishops to satisfy the people and to say what the people want to hear with a nice smile, and to preach with “our intelligence” and with our “cultural preparation”! MANY PREACHERS SAY THEY DO NOT WANT TO FRIGHTEN THE PEOPLE! But what is true love? To provide for a nice life of 100 years, or to encourage our flock to seek and work for a beautiful life of eternity? So many sermons today are designed to make you feel good instead helping you be good! Unlike Christ, the remotely controversial is avoided.

SO MANY PARENTS TODAY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO SAY NO TO THEIR CHILDREN HERE ON EARTH! And thus they do not know how to say YES to eternal happiness! And then afterwards they ask why their children end up divorced and with so many other problems? Is this true love? Love for who? Many bishops and priests today are like sleeping dogs who do not bark at the approach of the wolf. The last two generations, if not more, in America have received very poor catechesis. Most Catholics do not even know the Ten Commandments (not 10 suggestions!) so as to be able to have a minimal basis in order to form one’s conscience and to be able to examine one’s conscience before making a good confession. To all the negligent or false teachers out there,... your days are numbered. The Lord is taking back His Church.
SAINT PADRE PIO EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE DROVE INSINCERE PEOPLE OUT OF HIS CONFESSIONAL. On one such occasion he threw out a mother of two daughters. Later Padre Pio, who could read the hearts and souls of people, revealed that this mother never disciplined her two daughters, never said NO even though these two daughters went around immodestly dressed. Padre Pio knew in his spirit that both of the daughters were already dead and both ended up in hell and so he reviled the mother for this grave lack of doing her job as a mother!

Many offer misguided compassion; they do not want to hurt the feelings of others. They want to make everybody feel good and happy at the expense of the truth. But then tomorrow there are the consequences! Truth is truth! As they say: “You can’t fool mother nature!”

The devil seeks, in everyway possible, to convince us that the devil and hell do not exist so that we do not put any effort into discovering our great lack of love and our hidden egotistical motives. If the devils do not exist, if there is no hell, then we all go to Heaven! And so we have nothing to fear?!? WHAT A DECEPTION! The first step of conversion is to realize that we are sinners. Today people are totally surrounded by the “TYRANNY OF RELATIVISM”, each person is a little god on his own and determines for himself what is good and evil. What is right for you is OK; what is right for me is OK, and so on. The only thing that is not tolerated is the absolute truth from the Creator! People have lost the belief and connection with the Creator of all things who establishes absolute truth which can be found in His creation and in His divine revelation in Sacred Scripture interpreted by the One Church that He left us with the “Rock” as the guide and head. Pope Benedict XVI has often said that relativism is truly a “tyranny”! Priests and bishops must help people out of this grave diabolic trap of the “tyranny of relativism” to find true freedom, the true meaning of life and true happiness not only on earth but for all eternity. If the priests and bishops speak only about God as love and merciful and do not speak anymore about the reality of mortal sin and the reality of hell, many people end up believing there is not much need (or none whatsoever!) to ask for the mercy of God and thus the redemption is rendered useless and null. WE NO LONGER NEED JESUS REDEEMER! So many people (Catholics) today do not understand anymore what is mortal sin and thus do not go to the sacrament of Confession regularly or do not go at all.

To fight in a battle, is it not prudent and necessary to know not only your own weapons, tactics and strategy, but also the weapons, tactics and strategy of the enemy? It was recounted to Pope John Paul II that the Vatican's chief exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, “knows too many bishops who do not believe in the Devil”. The Pope replied bluntly: “ANYONE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE DEVIL DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL”. When asked “What do you see as Satan’s greatest success?”, Amorth replied: “The fact that he has managed to convince people that he does not exist. He has almost managed it, even within the Church. We have a clergy and an Episcopate who no longer believe in the Devil , in exorcism, in the exceptional evil the Devil can instill, or even in the power that Jesus bestowed to cast out demons. … And they no longer believe in the Devil. We have entire Episcopates trying to counter exorcism. We have countries completely devoid of exorcists, such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. This is a shameful shortfall.”; (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879).
“THERE IS A RISE IN SATANISM, and satanic activity and satanic ritual murders. This danger is real and should not be ignored.”; (http://www.fatima.org/crusader/cr45/cr45pg27.asp).

“The Lure of the Vampire” (http://www.angelfire.com/ny3/ENDEMONIADA/lureofvampire.html). Groups of Satanism are springing up all over the world as fewer and fewer Christians go regularly to church services.

We are in the greatest spiritual battle in the history of the Church and of the world, and so many of our generals, the bishops, and our captains, the priests, do not even believe or want to believe that the enemy exists, let alone to understand the weapons, tactics and strategy of the enemy! WOE TO US SIMPLE BUCK PRIVATES WHO ARE ON THE BATTLE FIELD WITH SUCH UNINFORMED AND UNPREPARED OFFICERS TO LEAD US!

A GREAT SOURCE OF PEACE IS AUTHENTIC HUMILITY. Humility is absolutely essential for any union with God and spiritual progress. Humility is needed to discover the innate laws of nature around us and in us which are put there by the Creator as well as to seek, discover, believe and live God’s divine revelation . To refuse this inborn law is like not following the instruction manual of the car maker by putting Coca Cola in the gas tank and grapefruit juice in the crank case. Things do not work properly in our life if we arrogantly refuse to follow the revealed instructions of our Maker. Humility is also a prerequisite for being heard by GOD.

I posed a question to several people who work in the parishes: “When is the last time that you heard a priest say that it is a mortal sin to use artificial birth control and that one must confess this grave sin and throw away the IUD’s and the pill before receiving the Most Holy Eucharist, otherwise one commits another mortal sin? Or that the contraceptive mentality erodes and destroys the fundamental cell of society, the family?” ALL OF THEM SAID NEVER!

Is not THE GREATEST LOVE for another person to help that person to arrive to eternal salvation and happiness, rather than only comfort and feeling good during this very short life? One finds in the four Gospels Jesus referring to hell about 70 times, but we rarely hear about this today. Perhaps 100 years ago there were some who exaggerated the preaching of hell, fire and brimstone, without establishing the base of true love and mercy as well. But today the pendulum has gone totally to the other extreme to the great detriment of countless souls.

St. Augustine writes: “ “Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord.” And what must you shepherds hear? “Thus says the Lord: Behold I am superior to the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand” (Ez 34:9). Listen and learn, sheep of God: God requires his sheep from the wicked shepherds, and from them demands an account for the death of his sheep. For he says in another place through the same prophet: “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. If I say to the wicked, O wicked man, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. BUT IF YOU WARN THE WICKED TO TURN FROM HIS WAY, AND HE DOES NOT TURN FROM HIS WAY, HE SHALL DIE IN HIS INIQUITY, BUT YOU WILL HAVE SAVED YOU LIFE.” What is this, my brothers? You see how dangerous it is to keep silent? He dies, and rightly dies; he dies in his impiety and sin; for his heedlessness kills him. He might have found the living shepherd, who says, “As I live, says the Lord”; but since he has been heedless, no warning coming from the one appointed as watchman to give warning, he will justly die, and the watchman will be justly condemned. But if, says the Lord, you tell and impious man, “You will surely die”, when I have threatened him with the sword, and he neglects to avoid the sword hanging over him, and it falls and kills him, he will die in his sin; but you have saved your life. Therefore it is my part not to keep silent; it is yours , even if I should keep silent, to listen to the words of the shepherd from holy scripture.” (Ez 33:7-9) (Office of Readings, week 25, Wednesday).

IT SEEMS THAT MANY PRIESTS AND BISHOPS ARE INCAPABLE OF DISPLEASING THE PEOPLE. The ones who should speak are silent because they are afraid of being laughed at or mocked or being accused of not being up with the times. In this regard, even the enemies of Christ admitted: “Teacher, we know that you are true, and teach the way of God truthfully, and care for no man; for you do not regard the position of men…” (Mt 22:16; Mk 12:14; Lk 20:21). In the end our silence ended up crucifying Christ!

How many couples and families have we priests and bishops undermined and destroyed in the name of “love” by giving council that some of the Church’s teachings are too difficult and outmoded, such as Humanae Vitae? A few years ago a worldwide study was done regarding the connection between divorce and having children. Millions of couples were surveyed. The results were: if the couple has no children, 39% end up in divorce; one child, 19% divorce rate; 2 children, 12% divorce rate; 3 children, 9%; and 4 or more children, less than 4% divorce rate. Having children is related to marriage stability. Even Aristotle said that childless couples do not have as much holding them together; they do not have the same type of unity. Childlessness is not the way to preserve happiness together and unity in marriage. God loves each of us immensely; when we heed His word pronounced by His lawful Church, things go much better!

ST. JOHN FISHER WAS THE ONLY BISHOP IN ENGLAND READY TO DIE FOR HIS FAITH UNDER KING HENRY VIII. How many priests and bishops today would be ready to die for their faith rather than being lured into having a prestigious position in the New World Order? Or how many bishops and priests and civil leaders would be in a very great crisis if they lost their title and positions as Pastor or Bishop or civil leader, even though these honors and titles have no value whatsoever after death!

LIFE IS TRULY A BATTLE. “He who does not go forward, slides backwards!” Immediately after the Second Vatican Council many bishops and priests and lay men and women interpreted the council documents so as to satisfy themselves and the people under their care rather than to satisfy God and His will. Thus they twisted the truths of the faith so as to take away the cross of suffering from the living of the authentic Gospel. A fundamental example of this was the incredible rebellion against the encyclical “Humanae Vitae” which was meant to safeguard the most precious and fundamental element of society, the family, as well as the dignity of man and woman. Lead by the Holy Spirit, the council also REFORMED THE LITURGY so as to lead the faithful to worship God not only individually, which was predominant for many centuries leading up to the council, but also as a community of believers. Again, so many church leaders used this opportunity to satisfy the people by PUTTING THEMSELVES AND THE COMMUNITY AT THE CENTER of the liturgy while putting aside or ignoring all together the fundamental purpose and goal of the liturgy, to worship God. Like Mother Angelic of EWTN once said, it is hard to tell the difference between many new churches built today and a sport gymnasium; the Creator of the universe in the Most Holy Eucharist is put off to the side somewhere or not even present.

HOW MANY LAYMEN AND LAYWOMEN WILL BE READY TO DIE AS SAINT THOMAS MORE, a contemporary of St. John Fisher and the Chancellor of England? Thomas More was thrown into prison in the Tower of London for his refusal to take the oath required by the “First Succession Act”, because the act disparaged the power of the Pope and Henry’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon. Thomas More was an important counselor to Henry VIII of England; he was tried and executed for treason by beheading in 1535 for denying that the king was the Supreme Head of the Church of England, a title the king had been given by the “Act of Supremacy” of 1534. What will each of us do when we will be given the choice to deny Jesus Christ and receive the microchip so as to eat and live, or to remain faithful to Jesus Christ and die of starvation and even torture?

“United Church of Christ, Methodist, Episcopal, Presbyterians OK Abortion Funding” (http://www.lifenews.com/nat5742.html).

WHY DID OUR LADY OF FATIMA SHOW THREE YOUNG CHILDREN A VISION OF HELL with countless souls falling everyday into the abyss as sparks into the great fire? Lucia of Fatima said to Father Fuentes (1957) that the face of our Lady was always sad. Our Lady sheds tears for each and everyone of her children who fall into hell for all eternity, depriving their Creator of their company for all eternity! Each of us will cry in the end because we did not pray and offer sacrifices as much as we could, just as Schindler cried in the end for not having more gold and valuables to exchange for the lives of the Jews during World War II (film “Schindler’s List”). God totally respects our primordial gift of our free will, being created in His image (Gen 1:26-27). This is true love! It is not easy today to preach the whole truth! If you have holes in your shield, the devil is a very good shot, and he will shoot an arrow right through the holes and hit you. Pastors, priests and bishops must PREACH BOTH POLES OF THE BATTERY; both are essential for the current to flow, otherwise there is not true Love Who is also INFINITELY JUST!

Pastors must help their sheep to not follow the world with it’s immorality, backbiting, wrong behaviors. There is no longer any rules, no scruples that holds them back, they are in jeopardy, and go to meet evil without looking back to think: “But where am I going?”

A great number of priest, bishops and parents do as Peter did at the beginning of his walk with Jesus when Peter rebuked Jesus who revealed to the Apostle that He must “suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed” (Mt 16:21). Peter later matured to the point of giving his life as a martyr for Jesus. Jesus would say to these numerous priests, bishops and parents, who never matured as Christians, the same as He said to Peter: “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me; for you are not on the side of God, but of men” (Mt 16:23). The principle commandment of the devil is: “Don’t suffer! You must not suffer!” Jesus said: “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Mt 7:13-14)! The narrow gate is the actual and personal presence of Christ crucified in our personal lives! “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Lk 9:23).

God the Father: “MY PRIEST SONS [CARDINALS, BISHOPS, PRIESTS] ARE ABOUT TO GIVE BATTLE TO THEIR GOD IN JESUS EUCHARIST, but they will not be able to deprive me of such joy, not while this My Favored son [the Pope], keeps watch over you. They will have to knock him down if they want to do all that they have in mind, but the Angels and the Saints help him to be strong and fighting.” (January 24, 2002; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa9902eng.html).

“Defend me, my brothers, defend me, do not be silent any longer, be courageous and DO NOT LET YOURSELVES BECOME INVOLVED WITH THE FREEMASONRY. You play both sides in order to ensnare as much as you can, but I will not permit beyond that which is decided. Enough!, they will soon say, but soon and this will be done so quickly, that will not ask themselves in time: - What is happening? Those poor ones clothed in purple, they think to be able to defy who? To their God? But who do they think they are? One God only there is and there does not exist another but Me.

“FEW ARE THE FAITHFUL WHO SEEK TRUE CHRISTIANITY … All will have to be indoctrinated with the authentic faith and not with the distorted faith from a ‘Masonic’ teaching.” (March 7, 2004; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa04eng.html).

‘THE ONES CLOTHED IN PURPLE WILL HAVE TO OBEY MY PETER!’
“The Ones clothed in purple depend on My Peter and if My Peter wants My Laws to be respected, as I instituted them, they will have to obey; and the one who will not be in agreement, will fall into my severe judgment. Oh yes, that I will have clemency, do not doubt this, but when I see that the repeated recalls of the Pope do not help and they still do that which is more suitable to them, I can no longer accept these lackings, because they are leading more and more to apostasy and they are disgusting so many faithful children who would want Holy Priests to imitate and not to have to reproach. They are making too many mistakes and all too easily they hide behind the word ‘obedience’. It is time that it is enough!”. (May 28, 2003; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa03eng.html).

“My daughter, let time pass and you will see HOW MANY HIDDEN INTRIGUES YOU WILL DISCOVER IN SO MANY PRIESTS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW MY WORD, BUT FOLLOW THE GOD OF MONEY, THEY FOLLOW AFFLUENCE, they follow the not having headaches so as to be in peace, without hearing any reproaches from their conscience, which would awaken from the stupor in which it is now, ensnared by wellbeing, by superficiality with which it is now carried out that which is the Law of God. Oh my dear, they have programmed a [law] that goes well for self, one that is in step with the times. This they say in order to hide the sin in omitting the True Word of God. But they will soon realize which is the True Word. They will become aware of where there is the Truth of the Messages. They will not be able to say – “I did not know!”.” (June 27, 2003; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa03eng.html).

“Many Will Loose Themselves Because Of The MODERN THEOLOGY” (December 7, 2002; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa9902eng.html).

God the Father: “My tone of voice this evening has become serious, because more serious is the time that you are living and I cannot permit that you fall into the traps! Be careful... children,... not to fall!... “MANY STARS WILL FALL”... it is written in the Sacred Book (Rev 12:4), but these stars will fall dragging… other smaller stars.” (December 10, 2004; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa04eng.html).

“I WILL STILL RELIVE THE CRUCIFIXION FROM THE PART OF ‘MY SCRIBES’, and still I will give Myself in order to bring salvation to those who will say: “Here I am, I want to follow you, I am guilty of my sins, I am conscious of my errors, but I ask You for pardon and mercy!”,” (June 18, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

Jesus (for the priests): “Our Hearts wait for you and they are parched with love, because few are those who have entrusted themselves and have reciprocated the Love given. They have despised Our working among the children, they have derided each time that with sincere Love we have made appeal to the conscience and to the intellect. Yes they believe to be OK, they believe to be infallible, but infallibility quickly disappears if God intervenes and cause to fall the scaffolding that they have constructed in order to erect themselves above the others in order to control the movements and to deride the sincere work of the ones who love Us. OH INCREDULOUS PRIESTS! WHAT MUST I DO TO MAKE YOU RE-ENTER INTO THE HOLY SHEEP-FOLD! If you remain outside how can you do so that the souls might enter into the Sheep-fold! They follow you, if you are more prodigious [firm and decided] in declaring that God there is, GOD EXISTS AND HELL ALSO EXISTS! SPEAK MORE ABOUT THE DEVIL and make him known as far as how powerful is his subjugation and the nonchalance of whom he tramples on. In ecclesial status seeking you are knowledgeable of what ‘load’ you make for yourselves, of how many souls you lead to Heaven, or how many you lead to the slaughter! Have a firm intention, and do not listen to those who propose to you alliance, in order to later manipulate even the Law of God for their pleasure. Listen to everyone, faithful and otherwise, listen and reflect, do not be prideful in saying: “To me it will not happen!”. You must not descend into compromises: one is with God or one passes to the enemy! This is My exhortation for those who make politics out of the faith. Amen!” (March 8, 2008; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa08eng.html).

God the Father: “My children, do you want to understand that the time that you are living will never present itself again? YOU ARE IN THE GRIP OF THE EVIL ONE, AND IT SEEMS THAT YOU ARE FINE THERE! Poor ungrateful children, when the whole truth will arrive to you, in the fullness of the Light of God, what do you believe, that God might not see that you are dirty up to the neck with hypocrisy, lies and inhuman “beauty”. What do you believe, that your God might still put up with this? It is time to finish this epoch so wicked and destructive of souls consecrated to Me, of souls given to Me and then lost. Of degenerate children, careless of the evil caused to others, beyond that to themselves! No, children, it is no longer time to waver, decide for yourselves God, otherwise it will be too late.” (November 17, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

“I am worried about how my children will react when they will have understood that the TRUTHS OF THE FAITH HAVE BEEN ALWAYS DISTORTED BY THOSE WHO WANTED TO MAKE OF MY CHURCH THEIR DINGY HOLE; of children worried about the wellbeing of the brothers, and THINKING TO DO THE RIGHT THING, they have accepted the changes, thus playing into the hands of the rebellious and infernal enemy. Oh yes they will understand, but at the expense of my children faithful to the “Church”, who believe in them. In this way they have denied My Word of truth, which must never be changed!”. (April 5, 2002; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa03eng.html).

Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said: “We don’t need a voice when everything is right; WE NEED A VOICE WHEN EVERYTHING IS WRONG.”

Read the encyclicals and writings of Pope Benedict XVI and watch EWTN (http://www.ewtn.com/)! “Mother Angelica (founder of EWTN), awarded top honor by Pope Benedict XVI”; October 5, 2009 (http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/new.php?n=17308).

46. The Egotistical Objectification of the Woman in the Name of Freedom!WHERE WAS THE VOICE OF THE BISHOPS AND PRIESTS IN THE LAST 60 YEARS as the forces of evil launched the greatest attack ever on Christian morals and in particular against the fundamental cells of all societies, THE FAMILY???

HOW HAVE WE ARRIVED TO THE POINT to have enshrined certain concepts today that were really very foreign to our founding fathers and which are not contained in the U.S. Constitution or in the Bill of Rights and were never intended or imagined even 60 years ago?

ONE OF THE KEY PLOYS OF THE GODLESS DESTROYERS OF OUR SOCIETY AND OF OUR CULTURE IN THE U.S. WAS TO REDEFINE AND EVEN INVENT A NEW NOTION OF PRIVACY TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM HOW IT WAS TRADITIONALLY UNDERSTOOD AND APPLIED IN LAW. The right to privacy had a narrow understanding when it was initially formulated. The "right to privacy" when originally formulated referred to the right to have such things as one's journal or conversations kept private. Sixty years ago there was much more of a sense of the importance to protect the common good of society against the various forms of egoism which, in particular, destroy the family and the morals of the society. Thus the use and distribution of contraceptives was held illegal by virtually all Christians who put this on the books in order to work against immorality; IT WAS CONSIDERED THAT CONTRACEPTION LED TO VICE, IT LED TO MEN HAVING SEX WITH PROSTITUTES AND MISTRESSES, AND THAT IT WOULD NEVER BE SOMETHING YOU USE WITH YOUR WIFE. They believed it would lead to promiscuity, to pornography, a distorted understanding of sexuality. So these laws were kept on the books. Our liberating culture destroyers were trying to find some way to make contraception legal, which was illegal in just about every state in the U.S. STATE AFTER STATE SUCCUMBED TO THEIR UNDERHANDED MANEUVERINGS BY REPEALING THESE WISE LAWS BASED IN THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN ETHOS. The state of Connecticut held out the longest against these diabolical attacks and subterfuges and so kept the laws on the books. The family destroyers and promisers of false liberty tried to get the legislators and courts to change the law, but they kept reaffirming the law; it was not overturned. And so they had to have a court case in 1965 that was actually set up. They had a professor speak to an audience at Yale. They invited the police and asked the police to arrest this man when he gave a free sample of a contraceptive to a cooed. And then they provoked their lawsuit.

Read: “THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY - HOW BAD LAWS ALLOWED THE CULTURE OF DEATH”, by Janet Smith. “Most Americans, even Catholics, probably take it for granted that the U.S. Constitution protects their right to privacy. But they may be surprised to find out that no such right is in the Constitution. Furthermore, the advent of the right to privacy in American constitutional law built a foundation for the culture of death to thrive in this country, according to philosopher Janet E. Smith. To diagnose the problem further, Smith has written “The Right to Privacy” (Ignatius). In the book, Smith discusses how Pope John Paul II’s encyclical “Evangelium Vitae” properly identifies the philosophical views that led to the invention of the right to privacy as we know it, as well as how it was used to advance the culture of death. She shared with ZENIT how the so-called right to privacy has vitiated any sense that there is an objective truth that must govern human behavior. …” (http://www.zenit.org/article-23962?l=english; http://www.ignatiusinsight.com/features2009/jsmith_righttoprivacy_mar09.asp).

“A new cultural climate is developing and taking hold, which gives crimes against life a new and – if possible – even more sinister character, giving rise to grave concern…” (Evangelium Vitae).

Read also: “CONTRACEPTION: WHY NOT?”. Janet Smith explains why the Catholic Church keeps insisting, in the face of the opposite position held by most of the rest of the modern world, that contraception is one of the worst inventions of our time. (http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/sexuality/se0002.html).

With this “SEPARATION OF FREEDOM FROM THE TRUTH” (Evangelium Vitae), the moral foundation which under girds the concept of marriage quickly became eroded. The Church has always held up very high the vocation of marriage. IN OUR MODERN CULTURE, SEX HAS BECOME JUST A RECREATIONAL ACTIVITY. It has nothing to do with expressing love. It has nothing to do with expressing a lifetime commitment. The Church tells us that the sexual act is meant to speak a certain language which is “I give myself to you in a way in which I give myself to no one else”. Our culture tells us it is OK to have sex with all sorts of people, before you get married and after marriage. And so it is very hard for people brought up in our “culture of death” today to understand the language of true love explained by the Church especially since the Church leaders were not vigilant in helping children and adults learn these vital essentials in the Catholic schools and formation programs, as well as to help people to learn to be on guard against the most powerful and deceptive and subtle attacks ever devised against the proper use of the gift of sexuality. Sex has become just an expression of “I want to enjoy a physical pleasure with you”; the sexual act is no longer an expression of a lifetime commitment to a person of the opposite sex.

WHY IS SEX APPROPRIATE FOR EXPRESSING A LIFETIME COMMITMENT? It is appropriate for expressing a lifetime commitment because it may lead to children. And children require a lifetime commitment. So this is where Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II really expanded this notion that the unitive and procreative meaning of the sexual act are intrinsically linked; they are inseparable. And so when you are trying to express true union, there is the intention for a future union with the leaving of the procreative meaning open in the sexual act. Contraception divided this fundamental union intended by the Creator. Contraception said “well sex is just for pleasure”. And now we have what we have in our culture. We have rampant promiscuity. We have 37% of the babies born our of wedlock. We have one out of four babies aborted. You can trace all of this back to the change in the understanding of sexuality that came with the contraceptive pill in 1960.

The right to privacy has become a bogus term which has become so enshrined after the Supreme Court case of Griswold v. Connecticut (1965). Originally the right to privacy meant that you could not have your private thoughts made public. THEY WERE TRYING TO FIND SOME WAY THEY COULD LEGALIZE THE USE AND SALE AND DISTRIBUTION OF CONTRACEPTIVES. But the words “right to privacy” do not appear anywhere in the Constitution or in the Bill of Rights, not even in the first, fourth, fifth or ninth amendments of the Constitution. So they basically made it up. They extended the right to privacy to mean that the bedroom was a private place. WELL YOU SAY THAT YES IT IS A PRIVATE PLACE. But there is all sorts of things that happen in a bedroom that are illegal: marital rape, incest, abuse of children. And so later the right to privacy used to justify abortion was simply made up. So what was originally a right to privacy, not allowing your diaries to be made public, became somehow a right to use contraception which had been understood as connected with vice and a fundamental detriment of society. TODAY THERE HAVE BEEN ALL KINDS OF LAWS TO PROTECT THE COMMON GOOD IN REGARDS TO SMOKING TOBACCO, BUT WE HAVE THROWN OUT ALL THE LAWS WHICH PROTECT THE MOST IMPORTANT BUILDING BLOCKS OF OUR SOCIETY, THE FAMILY. Contraception leads to so much promiscuity, abortion and babies born out of wedlock.

In the court case of 1965, the judges said that in no way is this going to legalize contraception for the unmarried; it is never going to lead to permission of such things as homosexuality. IT WAS VERY CLEAR THAT THE COURTS IN 1965 WERE STILL ABSOLUTELY BEHIND LEGISLATION THAT YOU MIGHT CALL MORALS LEGISLATION, that there are certain kinds of acts that human beings should not engage in, and it is in the interest of the state to prohibit those actions.

In the Supreme Court case “Baird v. Eisenstadt” (1967), CONTRACEPTION BECAME OK FOR SINGLE WOMEN as a kind of approval of sex outside of marriage. This was a huge explosion of the right to privacy. Since the law was saying that a single woman has a right to not bear a child, this left a huge opening to legalizing abortion which came about in 1973 saying that you can kill a baby in the womb but not in the bedroom! The slippery slope away from self-sacrifice for the benefit of others and of the common good quickly led to abortion, assisted suicide, sex between members of the same gender.

WE HAVE NO APPRECIATION OF THE COMMON GOOD ANYMORE. We see no reason to curtail our own living out of our own whims and preferences because it might harm the common good. Divorce is one of those things. Divorce was very hard to get because it was considered to be very bad for the spouses and for the children and for the society. So people were supposed to put up with a degree of unhappiness in their lives and to really fight for marriage, so that the good of children could be protected and the good of the culture could be protected. Now people think that this is absurd that you would expect this.

The council Fathers in the “DECREE ON THE APOSTOLATE OF THE LAITY” wrote: “Since, in our own times, new problems are arising and very serious errors are circulating which tend to undermine the foundations of religion, the moral order, and human society itself, this sacred synod earnestly exhorts laymen - each according to his own gifts of intelligence and learning - to be more diligent in doing what they can to explain, defend, and properly apply Christian principles to the problems of our era in accordance with the mind of the Church.” (http://www.va/archive/hist_councils/ii_vatican_council/documents/vat-ii_decree_19651118_apostolicam-actuositatem_en.html).

THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY HAS BEEN USED TO CODIFY SO MANY IMMORAL ATTITUDES AND ACTIONS AND WAYS OF LIFE INTO LAW. It is astonishing that this right to privacy is rooted in a right to property. It does not even make sense that the issue of contraception and all of the things that have followed could have grown out of that. In our times there is an incredible acceleration of going away from altruism toward egoism promoted with the use of the most sophisticated use of language change and marketing techniques and legal manipulations to present to the people the most horrible and destructive behaviors as something good, enlightening and liberating. “WOE TO THOSE WHO CALL EVIL GOOD AND GOOD EVIL, WHO PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS” (Is 5:20).

Those who truly love their Creator and their neighbor, and thus the common good, must RECAPTURE ON THE NATURAL ORDER THE IMPORTANCE OF VIRTUE, AND ON THE SUPERNATURAL LEVEL ORDER, THE CALL TO HOLINESS. Without virtue and without holiness there is no reversing of this disintegration of the moral life and of all of society. We are not the first nation to face this. We can always point to the collapse of the Roman empire. Where people move from something that is rooted in the very character of persons and is expressed in their social relationships, that when that gives way to a kind of subjectivism where all that matters is me, everything begins to fall apart. In the poison of subjectivism, people enter into themselves and project what they find or feel about who God is, not what creation or divine revelation tells them. It can be restored by that restoration of virtue on the natural order and a recognition for us as Christians, that we are called to the holiness of the Gospel.

GOD IS LOVE; HIS NATURE IS IMPRINTED IN ALL OF CREATION. A bell is not a bell until it is rung; a song is not a song until it is sung; love is not love until it is given away. When husband and wife give themselves to each other in mutual love, they realize the plan of the infinite Creator in true joy and peace. True love on earth always requires self-sacrifice and thus a certain amount of suffering. The first commandment of Satan is “Do not suffer; you must not suffer!” which leads to the destruction of ones self and of the society around us as more people follow the “father of lies”. When we love, we receive more love in our hearts and souls. When we do not love others, we loose what little we think we have (Lk 19:26). If we love and trust God for our solutions, all goes well; if we do not love, and if we trust ourselves for solutions, all goes badly.

As prophesized in Humanae Vitae, contraception has resulted in the objectification of the human person. The use of contraceptives was once relegated to a man who was engaging the services of a prostitute. And so in and of itself the connotation that was attached to contraceptive, whether it be some type of barrier type of contraceptive or whether it be the pill which later did come on the scene, was something that in and of itself was tainted because the action was an action that destroyed or was cheating on this covenant relationship that the spouses were meant to have. WE HAVE WATCHED THE WAY IN WHICH CONTRACEPTIVES HAVE CONTINUED TO, IN SOME WAY, BECOME A MEANS BY WHICH THE FEMALE PERSON HAS BEEN RELEGATED, ACROSS THE BOARD, TO THE POSITION OF A PROSTITUTE OR A MISTRESS.

These might seem to be extreme words, BUT THE CONTRACEPTIVE MENTALITY TOTALLY PERVERTS THE DESIGNS OF OUR LOVING CREATOR which most of our grandparents still had in their hearts, seeing the fertility of a woman as a great gift, her ability to bear children as a great gift. It is really something women have that men do not have. Men should be jealous of women that they are able to gestate and nurture and nurse a child. And it is treating this awesome gift as a defect in the woman’s system; we are continually bombarded with the idea that it would be better if the woman was male who can have sex without conceiving. That is considered the superior position by our depraved modern culture. So we are willing to do damage to our bodies in order to achieve that. And so men move in to be the users and exploiters of “liberated” women who have really become modern mistresses and prostitutes in their very own homes as well as on the pages of the very numerous pornographic magazines and websites.

EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THERE IS A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAVING SEXUAL INTERCOURSE THAT IS OPEN TO CHILDREN AND SEXUAL INTERCOURSE THAT IS NOT. The contraceptive act of sexual intercourse is in a sense virtually meaningless beyond the immediate pleasure. But to have sex with someone who has the possibility of having a child as a result of sex, is a profoundly meaningful act. Because you are really saying to this person that I am willing to have children with you. I am willing to be there for breakfast and PTA and weddings and grow old with you. The act says all of that. Whereas the contraceptive act says that I want to have this momentary act of pleasure with you. This contraceptive mentality has convinced women, allowing themselves to be just momentary sources of pleasure, to be content as prostitutes and mistresses, instead of wanting to be a beloved spouse who a man treasures and says I want to commit my whole life to you; I want to live in service of you and the children that we will bear together. That is what my act of sexual intercourse means. IT MEANS I AFFIRM YOU TO THE POINT WHERE I AM WILLING TO GIVE MY WHOLE LIFE TO YOU. But now the woman is willing to give these twenty minutes to a man, and that is all it is. So it radically changes the understanding of sex, marriage and female dignity. It is not a loving embrace but simply a means to an end, an objectification, the prostitution of the woman in a real and conceptual sense.

THE CONTRACEPTING COUPLE REDUCE THE SEXUAL ACT TO A LIE! Because the sexual act is meant to be an act of complete self-giving. You are giving yourself to another person in a way in which you give yourself to no one else. Our culture tends to think about sex as “just sex”. No big deal. It is just a physical act between two people; you could play tennis with someone, you can go to a movie with someone, and you can go to dinner with someone and you can have sex with someone. NO BIG DEAL. NO COMMITMENT. And people do get bored with having sex. In the couples using Natural Family Planning (NFP), that is never the case. Because it is retained for them the natural mean, which is I AM GIVING MYSELF COMPLETELY TO YOU IN A WAY IN WHICH I GIVE MYSELF TO NO OTHER. And I am open to having children with you. This is an incredible statement. Contraceptive sex says I want to have this momentary physical pleasure with you. That’s it. No breakfast, no tomorrow. They might not even know each others last name. The divorce rate among contracepting couples is about 40-60%; among those using NFP, 2-4%.

Non contraceptive sex, sex in which no contraception takes place, in a certain intrinsic sense, is scary. Because it means if I am having sex with this person with no contraception, there may be a child. And if there is a child, that means I have a life time relationship with this person. I am ready to grow old together with this person. SO THOSE COUPLES WHO ARE HAVING SEX IN THIS WAY ARE ALWAYS SAYING TO THIS PERSON, YOU AND ME ONLY, AND YOU FOREVER. Where as contraceptives are saying, you and who knows who else, and you now, but not tomorrow.

You can have contraceptive sex with almost anybody, and that is what our culture understands. So you can make a long list of those you would like to have sex with. But you make a list of those people you want to have children with, it is a very short list. That is love. You are looking at this man not only as a wonderful husband but also as a good father. CONTRACEPTIVE SEX IS MOMENTARY. SEX OPEN TO CHILDREN IS FOREVER. I want a person who is going to be a good father or a good mother. What does that mean? Responsible, diligent, generous, patient. That’s the person who will be a marvelous husband or wife, as well as a good parent. So you are looking for an entirely different sort of person. They have to pass a test of character that the sexual partner does not need to have. A POTENTIAL FATHER OR A POTENTIAL MOTHER HAS TO PASS A CHARACTER TEST. BUT THE SEXUAL PARTNER IS A PHYSICAL TEST. IT IS ALL ABOUT LOVE AND RESPONSIBILITY.

WE MUST SEEK TO ROOT OUT THE SEEING THE OTHER AS JUST AN OBJECT, whether that is an exalted object or an object for everyday use, so as to begin again to appreciate the value of each human person. For a husband to value his wife as a woman, as a person, has got to be the foundation. It calls him out of his selfishness, which we are all prone toward. It calls us to let go of what is a raging epidemic of our time, this epidemic of narcissism which says it is all about me. THIS CAN BE DONE ONLY WITH THE HELP OF GOD!

47. The “Mark of the Beast”, 666Some scholars of prophecy SPIRITUALIZE just about all of the Book of Revelation, the book of Daniel and other prophetic writings of Sacred Scripture. These scholars interpret the mark of the beast in a general way as sin, or perhaps as a particular type of serious sin. But these prophetic books indicate that in the latter times each person will be confronted with a concrete and fundamental choice between God and Satan in the form of the beast. Many believe that the solution or rather the next step of these powerful people, when they are ready, after they crash the economy of the world, will probably be to entice all to receive AN EMBEDDED MICROCHIP, without the prefix 666, at least in the beginning, which can be followed and monitored by satellite or perhaps by the cell phone infrastructures or by other newly developed technology. With this microchip one will be able to buy and sell without cash, but totally monitored. This imbedded microchip will render them, and later the Antichrist, the absolute dictators of the world even down to the individual level with the use of computers and satellites and modern technology! Indications have recently surfaced that the microchip will have the capability of releasing a poison to eliminate undesirable people or those who do not totally submit to the dictates of the leaders (or leader, the Antichrist) of the New World Order.

It is costly to maintain prisons! It was very costly to maintain the Berlin Wall! LET US REJOICE to save money, because soon the entire world will be one enormous prison, with no walls, controlled by our loving world dictators using microchips, satellites and computers!

Our “loving” government officials elected by “God-fearing” citizens passed the laws which promote the culture of death with legal contraception, pornography, divorce, abortion, experimentation with human embryos, defining “marriage” as between two or more of the same sex or whatever… These laws have caused an unprecedented increase of crime and murder and so many other horrible acts by human beings; but now the society that promoted these laws contrary to the 10 Commandments do not have enough money to build enough prisons! So they begin to let more and more convicts free with a microchip implanted under their skin and then are followed and monitored by satellite and corresponding linking infrastructures. SOON THE WORLD WILL BE ONE WORLD WIDE PRISON “AS IT IS IN” HELL!

They will tell us that with the microchip and with no cash, thieves can no longer rob you. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE NEW DEFINITION OF CRIMINAL WILL BE THOSE WHO REFUSE TO DENY OPENLY JESUS CHRIST! The great majority of people did not stand up when the category of killing according to the “law” were the defenseless, unwanted babies in the womb; so very soon the category of killing according to the “law” will be changed for those who refuse to openly deny Jesus Christ! Those who deny Christ will end up under the “law” of Satan for all eternity, whether they believe the devil or hell or God exist or not.

THE LEADERS OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER HOPE TO BE ABLE TO TRACK EVERY HUMAN BEING ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH DIRECTLY BY SATELLITE. But the cell phone infrastructures and other technologies already in place would work just as well or could also be linked to satellite. It seems that they are already implanting the microchip under various guises, such as for medical reasons, lost children, etc. But more recently there is much evidence that they are including the ever smaller microchip in the swine flu vaccination, insisting, by way of the mass media and their puppets in power in the various nations, that the swine flu vaccination or whatever else they concoct, is absolutely necessary. With the overblown threat of a pandemic, they are already preparing mass graves for the populations in many countries. To many well informed professional people regarding this matter, it seems much more plausible that these mass graves are not being prepared for the deaths due to the swine flu or some other exaggerated pandemic, but for those to be eliminated by the world master planners. When, in the past, have governments ever prepared mass graves before an epidemic became a real problem?

MOST PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO HEAR THESE THINGS OR EVEN CONSIDER THIS POSSIBILITY. “Ignorance is bliss!” Most people put out of their mind the possibility that a person with a nice smile and beautiful words could become another Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin or Mao Tse Tung, who killed millions of their own people and others in the last century. “After all we are more intelligent and sophisticated today!” But as I said to my cousins who voted for Obama, if a person promises, if elected, to sign FOCA as the first thing he would do as president, that person is CAPABLE OF ANYTHING! At the beginning people were happy with Hitler, Stalin and other cunning heads of state. If a person is not right with God, or as we say as Catholics, not in the state of grace with no intention of regret or sorrow or repentance, what’s to stop him or her from doing all the atrocious things of the past and even worse? And we, who are not right with God and have no intention whatsoever of seeking God’s truth and to live by that truth, very easily believe their lies. This situation is not only leading the sheep, but also the goats, who have ignored or rejected the real Shepherd, to the slaughter house. As Adolf Hitler said: “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough it will be believed!”

These egotistical world leaders do not need six or seven billion slaves; they need to eliminate a few billion! The infamous CLUB OF ROME is certainly clear about who they think the "enemy" is..... "In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap of mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. THE REAL ENEMY, THEN, IS HUMANITY ITSELF."; (http://signsofthelastdays.com/archives/the-radical-population-control-and-eugenics-agenda-of-the-global-elite).

The Book of Revelation indicates that in order to receive the mark of the beast one will have to ADORE THE IMAGE OF THE ANTICHRIST, the “first beast” (Rev 13,11-18) and thus deny Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world and the Son of the living God! The very recent revelations of God to Margaret of Jesus instead, tell us that we must not accept the microchip even at the beginning! Of course no one can be forced to adore the image of the Antichrist and to deny Christ. Certainly one can be tortured or starved to death, but we still have our free will. The devil knows well that it is NOT A SIN TO BE FORCED TO TAKE THE “MARK OF THE BEAST” which could very well take on the form of the microchip. But it looks like most of the true followers of Christ will be forced to die of starvation, or even be tortured and killed, in order to not deny Jesus and go to heaven. Many prophecies indicate that the great majority will deny Jesus in order to receive the mark of the beast in order to eat and buy things but then will later be punished by God not only here on earth (Rev 16:2) but also for all eternity in hell (Rev 14:9-11). Pope Paul VI said that the flock that will remain loyal to Jesus Christ in this period will be “very small!”

NO ONE GOES TO HELL OR TO HEAVEN FOR ALL ETERNITY BY FORCE OR BY CHANCE! God himself guarantees and protects our great gift of the freedom to choose good or evil. God also waits for each of us to freely ask for His help, at which point He gives us all the help we need, PRECISELY BECAUSE WE ASKED! It is not God who condemns a person to hell; it is the person who freely chooses to go to hell. Someone who is kicking and screaming to avoid spending eternity with God will not be forces against his or her will! Thus those who have already taken the microchip obviously have not denied Christ and thus there is no sin. But, if for no other reason, the incredible surveillances that one would be subjected to with the microchip is not befit of our dignity as free human beings created in the image of the Triune God (Gen 1:26, 27)! Up to this point in time, the microchips have been used for our dogs and cats!

But those who have already been unknowingly injected or duped into taking the microchip, can later be given the mandate to deny Christ and adore the image of this soon-to-appear world leader. If they refuse to deny their God, they will no longer be able to buy or sell in a cashless society or else a deadly poison will be released by the remote controlled microchip already in their bodies. It seems that right now they are in the stage of covertly and shrewdly getting as many people “chipped” as possible by way of a supposed pandemic or other highly promoted pretexts. Certainly there are real health threats today. But these Godless masters of the world use all possible ways, including media hype, psychological manipulation and highly sophisticated marketing techniques to arrive at their goal. WE ARE NOT ANIMALS! Human beings have a great God-given dignity which is not at all recognized or acknowledged by these Godless secularists who are now in control of our world.

The world planners are now in the stage of covertly and gently leading people to receive the microchip using the mass media filled with well studied psychological methods and exaggerated pandemic scare tactics. But when they are ready and they cause a major crisis or cause the world markets to crash, they will attempt to force everyone else to take this dreadful injection of the “DEATH CHIP”.

In 2007, Hitachi introduced THE WORLD’S SMALLEST RFID CHIPS which measure just 0.05 x 0.05 millimetres. Compare this with the new powder-type RFID tags which measure about sixty times smaller. These ‘’powder” RFID’s, like their predecessor, have a 128-bit ROM for storing a unique 38 digit number. According to Mr. Redmond, ”The chip in the National ID card has not only a number, but also a person’s work history, education, religion, ethnicity, police record and reproductive history.” Wal-Mart, Best Buy, the U.S. Military and many other agencies around the world, are already implementing the use of RFID chips. In London, police authorities announced that they were putting RFID chips on the entire police force. In Shenzhen, Southern China they are implementing RFID readers to track the movements of citizens: ‘’all citizens have an ID card with a chip so that they can identify who is in what part of the city at any point in time.” Nigel Gilbert of the Royal Academy of Engineering said that by 2011 you should be able to go on Google and find out where someone is at any time from chips on clothing, in cars, cell phones, and also in people.

48. Do Not Deny Christ!Perhaps one might think he can adore the image of the Antichrist outwardly but confess Jesus Christ inwardly in order to receive the "mark of the Beast" (666; Rev 13:18). But this will not work! Because those who receive this mark on "their right hand or in their foreheads" will be able to "buy or sell" for a while but will later be punished by God here on earth (Rev 16:2) as well as for all eternity in hell (Rev 14:9-11). Saint Paul very clearly writes: "If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved" (Rom 10:9). JESUS SAID: "BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL DENY ME BEFORE MEN, HIM WILL I ALSO DENY BEFORE MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN" (MT 10:32-33). For other verses regarding falsely professing Jesus Christ see: Mk 7:6; Lk 16:15; Tit 1:16; Mt 7:21-23. “Whoever seeks to gain his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it” (Lk 17:33).

St. John, in the Book of Revelation, 13:4,16-17, clearly indicates that to receive the mark it will be necessary to renounce Christ and swear allegiance to the beast. ST PIUS X IN HIS ENCYCLICAL ‘E SUPREMI APOSTOLATUS’ of Oct. 4, 1903 states, “In the distinguishing mark of Antichrist, man has with infinite audacity put himself in the place of God, raising himself above all that is called God; he has despised God’s majesty and, as it were, made of the universe a temple wherein he himself is to be adored.”

It is good to know about this trap before it happens so as not to be deceived into an eternal mistake! WE NEED MORE RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND LAYMEN AND LAYWOMEN TO WARN US OF THIS ETERNAL TRAP, as Jesus tells us by way of Margaret of Jesus. Forewarned is forearmed! The Beast will be able to perform "signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect" (Mt 24:24; Mk 13:22; Rev 13:8; 19:20)! If more religious leaders had less fear of human respect and the courage to speak about prophecy in the Bible and about the second coming of Christ, perhaps there would be less people swayed by Jehovah's Witnesses and other cults which speak in a mistaken way about the end of the world!

I believe that it will be imperative not to take the microchip even at the beginning as God the Father revealed to MARGARET OF JESUS: “I am the Father! And My children must not give ear to any plausible argument they might offer in order to make them put on such a “device”. No! I say, no! My children! It would be to deny me as Father! It would be to agree to the voice of the "Beast"! Listen to My heartfelt appeal, refuse immediately their command, which will have the goal of being able to control all of you, to have you all as “human hostages.” No, do not do that! That would be a true disaster for you, because MY ANGELS WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE YOU AS CHILDREN OF GOD. … REFUSE IT, REFUSE IT, REFUSE IT!” (April 27, 2004). … “THE FATHER IN PERSON REVEALS that the "mark of the beast” is the "micro-chip" (Rev 14:9-10).” (http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/microchipeng.html).

The more one sins and the less one prays, the more one becomes blind to reality and to the truth. "God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." (2Thess 2:11-12). Have not the vast majority of people and Christians (including Catholics) YIELDED TO THE FIRST AND MOST FUNDAMENTAL AND CONTINUAL TEMPTATION OF SATAN? “But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” (Gen 3:4-5).

Today so many have put themselves in the place of God by deciding by themselves that abortion and so many other sins against the 10 commandments and against all the revelations of God is OK! Many church goers use religion for their own personal motives and desires or even to justify or camouflage their un-Godly, subtly and hidden egotistical behavior rather than to use religion to seek, to discover and to DO THE WILL OF GOD, which always entails a certain amount of suffering and self-denial. They say in the Our Father “Thy will be done”, but only if it is “my will”. Many Christians come to church to feel good and holy, to satisfy themselves, but not to satisfy the ONE who gave them everything they have, Who died for them! Christians want to consider themselves “good Christians”, but the great majority of Christians “ALL LOOK AFTER THEIR OWN INTERESTS, NOT THOSE OF JESUS CHRIST” (Phil 2:21). When such a person dies, Jesus will say: “You cannot spend eternity with Me in paradise because you made up and lived by the truth according to yourself; you did not seek the truth outside of yourself in My creation and above all in My divine revelation in Sacred Scripture explained by the Church, with the Rock, that I left you.”

“Few are the faithful children that seek True Christianity, but one adapts to the doctrine that is closest to their way of thinking and so they feel satisfied.” (March 7, 2004; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa04eng.html).

Since MOST PEOPLE WANT TO FEEL SAVED, most Christians today pick and choose from the Gospel and from the ten commandments that which suits them and ignore or reject the rest. God has put into each of us at least an inkling that there is life after death as well as to have a happy afterlife. To be able to feel saved and still avoid self-sacrifice for love of others MOST CATHOLICS TODAY HAVE A CAFETERIA TYPE RELIGION, picking and choosing from the Church’s teachings that which suits them and that which they alone decide they will accept. This is also the motive for many Catholics to seek out a priest who will approve their lifestyle which is not in accordance with the Gospel as explained by the Catholic Church.

That which God gave to Moses on the stone tablets, are 10 COMMANDMENTS, NOT 10 SUGGESTIONS. The definition of heresy is, 'pick and choose'….

Pope John Paul II (among many other occasions) spoke firmly against this “PICK AND CHOOSE SMORGASBORD TYPE CATHOLICISM” in LA in his September 1987 visit: "It is sometimes reported that a large number of Catholics today do not adhere to the teaching of the Church on a number of questions, notably sexual and conjugal morality, divorce and remarriage. Some are reported as not accepting the Church's clear position on abortion. It has also been noted that there is a tendency on the part of some Catholics to be selective in their adherence to the Church's moral teachings. It is sometimes claimed that dissent from the Magisterium is totally compatible with being a "good Catholic" and poses no obstacle to the reception of the sacraments. This is a grave error that challenges the teaching office of the bishops of the United States and elsewhere. I wish to encourage you in the love of Christ to address this situation courageously in your pastoral ministry, relying on the power of God's truth to attract assent and on the grace of the Holy Spirit which is given both to those who proclaim the message and to those to whom it is addressed"; taken from the address of Pope John Paul II to the bishops of the United States in Los Angeles on September 16, 1987.

For most people there is a FUNDAMENTAL LACK OF TRUST IN GOD Who truly loves each of His creatures immensely and thus there is a lack of trust that His perfect plan for each of us, from all eternity, is the best and greatest design for each of us. Most people are unwilling to suffer and to trust God more than themselves in order to carry out and fulfill this great design for each of us.

Just before JESUS said: “But whosoever shall deny Me before men, …”, HE INVITED US TO TRUST: “So have no fear of them, …And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul, … But even the hairs of your head are all numbered, … You are of more value than many sparrows.” (Mt 10:26-31).

We so easily tend to be self-centered and do not think of how much Jesus suffered for us. A good mother suffers more than the child when the child chooses what will hurt the child. So too God “suffers” more than we when we choose evil rather than good. I truly believe that when Jesus cried out on the cross “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME?” (Mt 27:46; Mk 15:34), he suffered more than all the suffering and pain of all the souls combined on earth, in hell and in purgatory for all time! Jesus said to St. Faustina: “My daughter, know that your ardent love and the compassion you have for Me were a consolation to Me in the Garden [of Olives]” (Diary, No. 1664).

Chiara Lubich wrote the well-known text "I have only one Spouse on earth: Jesus Forsaken..." on 20 September 1949. She explains it to us in the following talk (http://www.centrochiaralubich.org/index.php/en/documents/videos/54-gesu-abbandonato.html).

49. ONE Antichrist in ParticularThere are also those who say there are many antichrists but not one in particular. But this idea is contrary to 1Jn 2:18: "Children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come; therefore we know that it is the last hour." The Catechism of the Catholic Church also indicates that there will be one Antichrist in particular: 675: "Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers (Cf. Lk 18:8; Mt 24:12). The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth (Cf. Lk 21:12; Jn 15:19-20) will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh” (Cf. 2Thess 2:4-12; 1Thess 5:2-3; 2Jn 7; 1Jn 2:18.22).

Very often Catholic commentaries on the Book of Revelation say that most or all of it was fulfilled in the early Church or in later Church history (preterism and historicism).
We find in the commentary on the NEW AMERICAN BIBLE: “A beast, symbolizing the Roman empire, then becomes the dragon's agent, mortally wounded but restored to life and worshiped by all the world (Rev 13:1-10). A second beast arises from the land, symbolizing the antichrist, which leads people astray by its prodigies to idolize the first beast” (Rev 13:11-18).
In the CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA (1917) we find: (Rev 13:1) “This first beast with seven heads and ten horns, is probably the whole company of infidels, enemies and persecutors of the people of God, from the beginning to the end of the world. The seven heads are seven kings, that is, seven principal kingdoms or empires, which have exercised, or shall exercise, tyrannical power over the people of God; of these, five were then fallen, viz.: the Egyptian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Persian, and Grecian monarchies: one was present, viz., the empire of Rome: and the seventh and chiefest was to come, viz., the great Antichrist and his empire. The ten horns may be understood as ten lesser persecutors.”
(Rev 13:3) “One of his heads…”. “Some understand this as the mortal wound, which the idolatry of the Roman empire (signified by the sixth head) received from Constantine; which was, as it were, healed again by Julian the Apostate.”
(Rev 13:11) “Another beast...” “This second beast with two horns, may be understood of the heathenish priests and magicians; the principal promoters both of idolatry and persecution.”

But as indicated above, 1Jn 2:18 as well as CCC 675 clearly state that there will be ONE ANTICHRIST IN PARTICULAR. The Catechism indicates that this Antichrist will appear in the future: “Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial.” Most scholars interpret the first beast in Rev 13:1-10 as the Antichrist. This would imply that the second beast in Rev 13:11-18 is also a real particular person who will work “great signs” in order to entice all to “worship the image of the (first) beast”, the Antichrist.

“And I saw, issuing from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet, three foul spirits like frogs…” (Rev 16:13). “And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had WORKED THE SIGNS by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image” (Rev 19:20; Rev 20:10).

MOST CATHOLIC SCHOLARS believe that the correct method of interpreting the Book of Revelation is a blending of the preterist and futurist methods. The beast is both Rome and the eschatological Antichrist, as well as any demonic power which the Church must face in her entire history.

50. The False ProphetThe super rich and powerful of today who control the banks and the petroleum and so many other things of the world, are not satisfied; they have had an incredible amount of patience, many of them never living to see their final goal achieved. It seems that they now have their representatives (puppets) in just about all the key positions in the world EXCEPT ONE. In their pride, these powerful people are dumbfounded and amazed that with all their tremendous efforts and power and wealth and even infiltration, they have not yet been able to put their man in as Pope. Obviously they do not believe in God or in the words of Jesus that “the gates of hell shall not prevail” (Mt 16:18). But surely “From some crevice, the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God” (Pope Paul VI, June 29, 1972). Many learned Catholics believe that they will finally resort to violence (most likely covertly) when the opportune moment has arrived.

There are many indications that the FALSE PROPHET, the second “beast” (Rev 13:11-18) will be a TRAITOROUS CATHOLIC BISHOP OR CARDINAL. It was the learned opinion of the eminent, 20th Century scripture scholar, Father E. SYLVESTER BERRY, that in the 12th and 13th chapters of the book of Revelation, John foretells of an usurpation of the papal see by the false prophet of Antichrist resulting in great tribulations befalling the Catholic Church. Fr. Berry points out that it is the papacy which is the principal target of those who seek to establish the reign of Antichrist. Heresy, schism and the introduction of false worship upon the altars of Catholic churches are, thus, to be the direct results of the removal of the TRUE Pope from the See of Rome, and subsequent occupation of the Chair of Peter by the forces of Antichrist.

Regarding prophecy, many people are fond of quoting such writers as Malachi Martin who was dismissed from the Society of Jesus in the mid 1960’s and was not re-admitted. He made up a lot of what he wrote in his books which he wrote after being dismissed from the Jesuit order. He often manufactured information, even so-called quotes from other people’s writings, which can be verified. Martin is quoted as writing in one of his later books: “The Roman Catholics will then have the spectacle of a pope validly elected who cuts the entire visible body of the Church loose from the traditional unity and apostolic structure that the Church has hitherto always believed and taught was divinely established.” But this does not square with many other reliable sources as well as the words of Jesus Himself (Mt 16:18)!

The ARCHBISHOP FULTON SHEEN, TV personality in the 50’s and 60 said: “The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church will be one. And the False Prophet will create the other. The false church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches. And religions forming some type of global association. A world parliament of churches. It will be emptied of all divine content and will be the mystical body of the antichrist. The mystical body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from among our bishops.”

Many Fathers of the Church wrote that the False Prophet would be a Catholic bishop who will become an INVALID anti-pope while the real Pope dies a cruel death in exile.

It is interesting that ST. HILDEGARD of BINGEN (d. 1179) wrote that when the new Pope is elected immediately before the Antichrist, a cardinal will kill the elected pope before he is crowned through jealousy, he wishing to be Pope himself. Then when the other cardinals elect the next Pope this cardinal will proclaim himself (anti) Pope, and two-thirds of the Christians will go with him. She notes that this Antipope as well as the Antichrist are descended from the tribe of Dan.

If this private revelation of St. Hildegard turns out to be true, is it possible that this Antipope, who will appear “IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THE ANTICHRIST”, might be the FALSE PROPHET predicted in the book of Revelation (Rev 16:13; 20:10; chap. 13 etc.) who will work hand in hand with the first "beast", the Antichrist, to subdue the world, performing also miracles (Rev 13:13-15; 19:20)? Thus all of these authors indicate that sometime in the future there will be an INVALID, false antipope occupying the Chair of Peter. But as Christ promised “the gates of hell would not prevail” against the “Rock”, the true, VALID, living Pope (Mt 16:18).

Perhaps this could help explain what Our Lady at La Salette said on September 19, 1846, "Rome would lose the Faith and become the seat of the antichrist . . . The Church will be in eclipse." I would interpret this as when the true Pope is killed or driven from Rome. This seems to go along with what Our Lady told Sr. Agnes Sasagawa at Akita, Japan (October 13, 1973): "The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops” (http://www.ewtn.com/library/mary/akita.htm).

The devil realizes that man has an innate need for religion. Thus Satan does not try to eradicate religion but to offer a “christian” or “catholic” religion “without a cross” as Fulton Sheen indicated. The Gospel tells us that the strong must help the weak. But this new religion will be the religion of the strong at the expense of the weak. This new religion will certainly include many satanic worshipers! “Satan Stalks Your Children - The Crime of the Nineties … THERE IS A RISE IN SATANISM, and satanic activity and satanic ritual murders. This danger is real and should not be ignored.”; (http://www.fatima.org/crusader/cr45/cr45pg27.asp).

THE REVELATIONS TO MARGARET OF JESUS ALSO CORRESPOND TO THESE INDICATIONS OF A “FALSE POPE” AS THE “FALSE PROPHET” (http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

“Remember this: when my son Peter will no longer be in power to guide the Church, then you will be very attentive in doing what they will ask you. There will be needed much discernment and letting oneself be interiorly guided and do not think too much about the ‘then’.” (January 24, 2002; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa9902eng.html).

51. No Public Holy Mass?Our dispensationalist brothers do not understand or believe THE INCREDIBLE VALUE OF THE HOLY MASS. In the book of Daniel we find that “the continual burnt offering was taken away … For two thousand and three hundred evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state” (Dan 8:11-14; 11:31). “And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week; and for half of the week he shall cause sacrifice and offering to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator” (Dan 9;27).

Do these passages indicate that during this period there will not be any public Holy Mass? The past dictators of the world did all they could to eliminate the public celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. PAST DICTATORS have almost always killed as many priests and bishops of the Catholic Church as possible as an effective way of greatly reducing the flow and influence of truth and graces. I believe this time around, since the followers of Satan have succeeded in slowly seducing most of the clergy (and even infiltrating into the clergy many of their own men), the priests and bishops will probably be given the CHOICE TO TOTALLY SUBMIT TO THE “NEW WORLD ORDER” OR BE TORTURED AND KILLED. Priests and bishops have a considerable influence; Satan would be very delighted to not waste and to be able to use this influence for his evil designs as much as possible. When the Generals and Officers in a war defect to the enemy’s side, it is a very great help to the enemy, especially if these officers bring with them many of their followers! Consider the devastating effects of traitorous bishops and priests in the history of the Church. Dr. Adam Weishaupt not only founded the Freemasons, he was also a Jesuit! Lucifer was the most beautiful and intelligent angel ever created; he became Satan! Several prophecies indicate that an evil cardinal or bishop will emerge as the false prophet to seduce the multitudes to deny the true God and to adore the first beast, the antichrist. The more a creature has received from God the more he can freely use these gifts to serve God or the more he can freely choose to use these powers and talents against God and against God’s true followers. The corruption of the best is the worst!

Dr. Scott Hahn, Professor of Theology and Scripture at Franciscan University of Steubenville (http://www.scotthahn.com/), said a simple statement that struck me the more I thought about it. He said that the crisis in the Church began when Catholics began to see the Eucharist as only a SACRED THING and no longer as the DIVINE PERSON! Perhaps this seems like an explanation too simple or even naïve! But we so easily forget that the source and summit of our Christian life is the Eucharist. Also, many of our Catholic priests and bishops, after the Second Vatican Council, began to promote a nice Christianity without the cross of Christ. A very revealing example of this is the incredible reaction to the encyclical “Humanae Vitae” which struck at the heart of our culture, the family, the fundamental cell of society. A striking parallel example of Catholics seeing the Eucharist not as the divine Person but only as a sacred thing is when men began to see women as objects instead of persons to love, especially after the invention of the “pill” in 1960 as pointed out above! This objectification of women was clearly prophesized in Humanae Vitae (1968)! (“Prophecies of Humanae Vitae”; http://pop.org/201003231196/prophecies-of-humanae-vitae).

This seemingly insignificant diminishing of faith in the Eucharist and the watering down of the divine Gospel to a human gospel is also directly related to how we Catholics began to come to church TO RECEIVE RATHER THAN TO GIVE, first of all to God in adoration, and then to Jesus in each neighbor. We Catholics have the greatest weapon to defend and fight against the onslaughts of Satan and his followers. When Catholics slip into this subtle default, seemingly simple and insignificant, the whole world suffers more than we can possibly imagine. In this greatest of battles against Satan and his followers, we Catholics have the greatest weapon, like a spiritual nuclear bomb, but the great majority of Catholics do not even go to Sunday Mass each week, and those who do, the great majority see the Eucharist as a nice sacred thing but not as the divine Person, to know, to love and to serve in a personal, intimate relationship. This seemingly insignificant default reduces our spiritual nuclear bombs to firecrackers. Even Satanists believe in the Eucharist; they try to acquire the consecrated Hosts in order to desecrate them at their Black Masses despite the fact that in the major basilicas in Rome and in other churches, there is a guard next to the priest who distributes Holy Communion to make sure that the people put the Body of Christ into their mouth and do not take it out of their mouth! We Catholics, far more than non Catholics who do not have the Real Presence of Christ nor the guidance in matters of faith and morals, are far more to blame for the situation of the world today, and we will be judged far more severely after death. WE HAVE RECEIVED MANY MORE “TALENTS” TO MULTIPLY. So many people, especially Catholics, “went and hid” the talents given by God; but God answered the slothful servant: “You wicked and slothful servant! … Take the talent from him … and he cast the worthless servant in the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth” (Mt 25:14-30)! The negative consequences of not multiplying our given talents is far greater for ourselves and for those around us than most of us realize!

Sister Mary Gabriel in purgatory told Sister Mary of the Cross (1880): “Preachers and directors of souls do good only in proportion to their union with Jesus. In their spirit of prayer and in watching over their interior, they must always have their eyes directed towards Jesus, sacrificing all for the salvation of the souls entrusted to their care.” (http://purgatory-manu.blogspot.com).

When Pope John Paul II replied bluntly in response about many bishops who do not believe in the Devil: “Anyone who does not believe in the Devil does not believe in the Gospel”, the Vatican's chief exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, was asked in his interview of 2001: “Again, ARE YOU SAYING THAT MANY BISHOPS AND PRIESTS ARE NOT, CONSEQUENTLY, CATHOLIC?” Amorth replied: “Let us just say that they do not believe a Gospel truth. So, if anything, I would stop them propagating a heresy. But, to be clear about this, a person is officially a heretic if he or she is accused of something and persists in the error. No one today, given the situation in the Church, is accusing a bishop of not believing in the Devil, or in demonic possession or of failing to appoint exorcists because he does not believe. And yet I could give you the names of so many bishops and cardinals who, on their appointment to a diocese, STRIPPED EXORCISTS OF THEIR FACULTY TO PERFORM THE RITE. Or there are bishops who openly say they don’t believe, that these are things of the past. Why is that? Unfortunately, we have had the insidious influence of certain biblists and I could mention some illustrious names. We who are in daily physical contact with the ‘other world’ know that this influence is evident in numerous liturgical reforms. (For example?) The Second Vatican Council asked that some texts be revised. Disobeying this command, they set about re-writing them completely with no thought for the danger of making things worse instead of better. So many rites came off badly from this mania to throw out the old and start from scratch, as if the Church to date had always conned us and as if only now the time had at last come of the great geniuses, the super theologians, the super-biblists and the super-liturgists who know what the right thing is for the Church. THIS IS A LIE: THE LAST COUNCIL SIMPLY ASKED THAT THE TEXTS BE REVISED, NOT DESTROYED.” (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879).

Cardinal Cañizares Llovera is Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship said: “THE "MOST URGENT ISSUE" IS THAT "THE SENSE OF THE LITURGY BE TRULY RECOVERED”. Some of his recent remarks made in an interview with the newspaper Catalunya Cristiana suggest that the "reform of the reform" is alive and well, even while the process is slow and arduous: … “People believe that the liturgy is a matter of forms and external realities, and what we really need is to restore a sense of worship, i.e. the sense of God as God. This sense of God can only be recovered with the liturgy. … THE LITURGY ALWAYS LOOKS TOWARDS GOD, NOT THE COMMUNITY…” (http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2009/10/cardinal-ca%C3%B1izares-the-most-urgent-issue-is-that-the-sense-of-the-liturgy.html).

Sister Lucia of Fatima said to Father Agostino Fuentes, the postulator of the cause of beatification of Giacinta e Francesco (December 26, 1957): “Our Lady is very displeased because it is not taken into account her message of 1917. Neither the good nor the bad have held them in consideration. Believe me my Father, the Lord will punish the world very soon; THE PUNISHMENT IS IMMANENT! Many nations will disappear from the face of the earth, many nations will be annihilated. Russia will be the scourge chosen by God to punish humanity, if we, with prayer and the sacraments do not obtain the grace of its conversion. The devil knows that the religious and priests, living less their beautiful vocation, drag many souls to hell. It is now the time to halt the punishment of Heaven. We have at our disposition TWO EFFICACIOUS MEANS: Prayer and Sacrifice. We do not want to frighten the souls, but it is an urgent appeal to reality. From the time when the Virgin gave such a great efficaciousness to the Rosary, there does not exist any material, spiritual, national or international problem that cannot be resolved by way of THE HOLY ROSARY AND BY OUR SACRIFICES. Our Lady expressly said: “We are nearing the end times”.
She said it three times:
First she stated that the devil has engaged in a decisive battle.
The second time she repeated that the last remedies given to the world are: the Holy Rosary and the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The third time she said that, the other means exhausted and despised by men, HE WILL GIVE WITH TREMBLING THE LAST ANCHOR OF SALVATION WHICH IS THE MOST HOLY VIRGIN IN PERSON, signs of tears, messages of several seers spread in all the parts of the earth. Our Lady said that if we do not listen and if we still offend we will not be pardoned. Father, it is urgent that we realize this terrible reality. We do not want to fill the souls with fear, but only it is urgent a recall to reality. From when the Holy Virgin gave such a great efficaciousness to the Rosary, there does not exist any material, spiritual, national or international problem that cannot be resolved with THE HOLY ROSARY AND WITH OUR SACRIFICES. To recite it with devotion will be to consol Mary and to wipe away so many tears from her Immaculate Heart.”
Sister Mary Gabriel in purgatory told Sister Mary of the Cross (1880): “Those who promote the recitation of the Rosary everywhere deserve praise. It is this prayer that is the most efficacious in the present time of need.” (http://purgatory-manu.blogspot.com).

And what and where will the “ABOMINATION THAT MAKES DESOLATE” be set up (Dan 9:27; 11:31; 12:11; 2Thess 2:4; Mt 24:15; Mk 13:14)? Certainly the elimination of all public Masses and sacraments is a very great abomination. But if these Scriptural passages also indicate a particular place on the earth as “the abomination”, perhaps our dispensationalist brothers might shed some light about the explanation of one particular abomination? “And from the time that the continual burnt offering is taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days” (Dan 12:11). This passage seems to indicate that we might be dealing with both daily Mass (“continual burnt offering”) as well as one particular abomination (“the abomination that makes desolate is set up”)! See "The Abomination of Desolation" below.

In a few short years the anti-God forces will even succeed in closing those churches where the whole Gospel is preached. Where a pseudo gospel is preached of masked egoism, without the cross of Christ, which is the foundation of true love of God and neighbor, these churches will remain open and convert themselves even more to their diabolical agenda. Then will emerge much more in the open their high church which is the adoration of Satan; THESE SATANIC CHURCHES ARE GROWING VERY QUICKLY TODAY!

“CONFRONTING THE DEVIL'S POWER”; Address of Pope Paul VI to a General Audience November 15, 1972. “WHAT ARE the Church's greatest needs at the present time? Don't be surprised at Our answer and don't write it off as simplistic or even superstitious: one of the Church's greatest needs is to be defended against the evil we call the Devil.” (http://www.papalencyclicals.net/Paul06/p6devil.htm).

“THERE IS A RISE IN SATANISM, and satanic activity and satanic ritual murders. This danger is real and should not be ignored.”; (http://www.fatima.org/crusader/cr45/cr45pg27.asp).

We read in Revelation 15:8: “And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were ended.” This seems to indicate that the Temple area is sealed to angels and men during the final forty-two months of the Tribulation hour. God’s throne, which symbolizes MERCY AND LOVE, IS CLOSED AT THIS TIME. This is also indicated in Second Thessalonians (2:11-12).
Regarding this closure of divine mercy, we find in the DIARY OF ST. FAUSTINA: “Oh, what great graces I will grant to souls who say this chaplet; the very depths of My tender mercy are stirred for the sake of those who say the chaplet. Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. IT IS A SIGN FOR THE END TIMES; AFTER IT WILL COME THE DAY OF JUSTICE. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them” (848). “Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy. If they will not adore My mercy, they will perish for all eternity. Secretary of My mercy, write, tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, BECAUSE THE AWFUL DAY, THE DAY OF MY JUSTICE, IS NEAR” (965). “These words are for you. Do all you possibly can for this work of My mercy. I desire that My mercy be worshiped, and I AM GIVING MANKIND THE LAST HOPE OF SALVATION; that is, recourse to My mercy. My heart rejoices in this feast” (998). “Let the greatest sinners place their trust in My mercy. They have the right before others to trust in the abyss of My mercy. My daughter, write about My mercy towards tormented souls. Souls that make an appeal to My mercy delight Me. To such souls I grant even more graces than they ask. I cannot punish even the greatest sinner if he makes an appeal to My compassion, but on the contrary, I justify him in My unfathomable and inscrutable mercy. Write: BEFORE I COME AS JUST JUDGE, I FIRST OPEN WIDE THE DOOR OF MY MERCY. HE WHO REFUSES TO PASS THROUGH THE DOOR OF MY MERCY MUST PASS THROUGH THE DOOR OF MY JUSTICE…” (1146). “Oh, how miserable are those who do not take advantage of the miracle of God’s mercy! You will call out in vain, but IT WILL BE TOO LATE” (1448). “In the Old Covenant I sent prophets wielding thunderbolts to My people. Today I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish aching mankind, but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My merciful heart. I use punishment when they themselves force Me to do so; My hand is reluctant to take hold of the sword of justice. BEFORE THE DAY OF JUSTICE I AM SENDING THE DAY OF MERCY” (1588).

“The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them." (October 13, 1973, at AKITA, JAPAN; http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/akita.htm).
As Sister Lucia of Fatima said to Father Agostino Fuentes, (1957): “Our Lady said that if we do not listen and if we still offend WE WILL NOT BE PARDONED.”

“Have courage, do it soon, there is not much time left! MERCY WILL SOON GIVE WAY ITS PLACE TO JUSTICE! Do not be lacking in the Love of the Father, take advantage of this while you are in time!”. (04/09/2003; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa03eng.html).

“SHORTLY THE OARS WILL BE PULLED BACK INTO THE BOAT AND I WILL LET EVERYTHING GO ADRIFT. You will then see what you will be able to do with only your own strength! Amen. Your God has spoken to you, daughter, and he has used you to still bring an admonishment for those who have not decided to return to Me. But soon I will no longer go seeking, I will watch until I will see that all have made their choice, then I will act”. (03/02/2004; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa04eng.html).

52. The Prophecies of St. MalachyJesus tells us: "Truly I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away" (Mt 24:34-35; Mk 13:31; Lk 21:33; 16:17; Mt 5:18). Only God the Father knows the day and the hour (Mt 24:36; Mk 13:32) of the second coming of the Lord, but we can "know that it is near, even at the doors" (Mt 24:33,36). If we do not seek to discover and understand the signs of our times, the Lord calls us “HYPOCRITES” (Lk 12:56)! Besides the Marian apparitions there are also numerous other prophecies. St. Malachy (1094-1148) born at Armagh, Ireland, died as he himself predicted, on November 2, 1148 at Clairvaux, France. Saint Malachy was a 12th century Irish monk, who, while on a visit to Rome had a vision, with a mysterious description, of all the popes who would ever reign. SAINT MALACHY PREDICTS THAT THE 112TH POPE AFTER HIS DEATH WOULD BE THE LAST POPE which corresponds to the pope following Pope Benedict XVI. He writes in the 112th prophecy: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations ; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.” I personally believe that this will be the point of the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Another interesting prophecy is that the total number of popes in the history of the Church will correspond to THE NUMBER OF MEDALLIONS for the images of all the popes in the church of St. Paul’s Outside the Walls in Rome. There are two medallions left empty after Pope Benedict XVI. Perhaps these two empty spaces correspond to the pope killed and the subsequently elected pope in St. Hildegard’s prophecy. Who knows? Only God the Father knows (Mt 24:36; Mk 13:32)!

53. Unresolved Questions!As we have seen above the Catholic Church teaches that “the system of mitigated Millenarianism cannot be taught safely" (CCC 676). The Church interprets chapter 20 of the Book of Revelation symbolically and sees the millennium not as an earthly golden age in which the world will be totally Christianized with Christ bodily present on earth, but as the present period of Christ’s rule in heaven and on the earth through his Church, during which time Satan is bound in such a way that he cannot deceive the nations by hindering the preaching of the gospel (Rev 20:3).

With this Catholic interpretation in mind, who then are those WHO “WERE BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the Beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” (Rev 20:4)? If this period of “a thousand years” in this passage refers to the last 2000 years, then who are those referred to in this passage in such great detail? It seems clear that this prophecy has not occurred yet. Is it possible to interpret this particular passage as referring to the Kingdom of God with his saints in heaven after the period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21)?

Could it then be interpreted that THE BINDING OF SATAN for a thousand years (Rev 20:3) refers to the period from the incarnation of Christ up to our recent times, but before the “great tribulation”? “Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain. And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years were ended. After that he must be loosed for a little while” (Rev 20:1-3).

“And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be loosed from his prison and will come out to deceive the nations which are at the four corners of the earth, …” (Rev 20:7-8). Could this passage (as well as “After that he must be loosed for a little while”) refer to THE VISION OF POPE LEO XIII in 1884? Could these passages, as well as the vision of Pope Leo XIII, refer to approximately the last 100 years or so together with the period of the coming “great tribulation”?

Exactly 33 years to the day prior to the great Miracle of the Sun in Fatima, that is, on October 13, 1884, Pope Leo XIII had a REMARKABLE VISION. When the aged Pontiff had finished celebrating Mass in his private Vatican Chapel, attended by a few Cardinals and members of the Vatican staff, he suddenly stopped at the foot of the altar. He stood there for about 10 minutes, as if in a trance, his face ashen white. Then, going immediately from the Chapel to his office, he composed the prayer to St. Michael, with instructions that it be said after all Low Masses everywhere. When asked what had happened, he explained that, as he was about to leave the foot of the altar, he suddenly heard voices - two voices, one kind and gentle, the other guttural and harsh. They seemed to come from near the tabernacle. As he listened, he heard the following conversation:
The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasted to Our Lord: "I can destroy your Church."
The gentle voice of Our Lord: "You can? Then go ahead and do so."
Satan: "To do so, I need more time and more power."
Our Lord: "How much time? How much power?
Satan: "75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service."
Our Lord: "You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will."

The prayer composed by Pope Leo XIII is the following:
SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

On Sunday April 24th 1994, Pope John Paul II recommended this prayer to be used by all Catholics as a prayer for the Church when he said:
'"May prayer strengthen us for the spiritual battle we are told about in the Letter to the Ephesians: 'Draw strength from the Lord and from His mighty power' (Ephesians 6:10). The Book of Revelation refers to this same battle, recalling before our eyes the image of St. Michael the Archangel (Revelation 12:7). Pope Leo XIII certainly had a very vivid recollection of this scene when, at the end of the last century, he introduced a special prayer to St. Michael throughout the Church. Although this prayer is no longer recited at the end of Mass, I ASK EVERYONE NOT TO FORGET IT AND TO RECITE IT TO OBTAIN HELP IN THE BATTLE AGAINST FORCES OF DARKNESS AND AGAINST THE SPIRIT OF THIS WORLD."'

“The Infernal Anger Is Unleashing Itself From Perverse Minds Given To The Devil... Now It Is That All Will Rage. … I created them for Love, and they have become a disgrace for the brothers, THEY HAVE BECOME LIKE CHILDREN OF SATAN: YES, THEY IMPERSONATE SATAN!” (February 24, 2004; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa04eng.html).

DOES THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST OCCUR AT THE END OF THE “GREAT TRIBULATION”? "The present time … ushers in the struggles of the last days" (CCC 672). “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be” (Mt 24:21). Does “and never will be” indicate that the Second Coming will not be immediately at the end of this period? Also Our Lady of Fatima said: “In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph and THE WORLD WILL BE GRANTED A TIME OF PEACE.” Does this indicate that Christ will return at the end of the period of tribulation or after the “time of peace” which will follow the period of tribulation? This also seems to indicate, along with what Lucia said in 1957 as well as the dates of Pope Leo XIII’s vision and the final message at Akita corresponding to the anniversary of the great miracle of the sun on October 13 at Fatima, that JESUS WANTS TO GIVE VERY SPECIAL HONOR TO HIS MOTHER IN THIS CLIMACTIC PERIOD OF THE WORLD. Certainly, Jesus lives the ten commandments better than anyone else, in particular, the forth commandment!

In the last century or so the Holy Spirit has sent to the world TREMENDOUS CHARISMAS that would seem to lay the foundation for a true Christian rebirth after a cleansing period, in particular the charisma of Unity by way of God’s instrument, Chiara Lubich. This seems to also indicate that the Second Coming might not be immediately after this coming tribulation period!? The great charisma of Saint Francis of Assisi was basically for his first order for men, the second order for women, and the third order for some laypeople. But this charisma of Unity is seen and understood by many experts today as not only for all people of all walks of life but even for the renewal of all facets and sectors of society, culture, economics, sociology, politics, psychology, etc.

54. The Numerous Apparitions of Our LadyPope Benedict XVI wrote in the book "The Ratzinger Report" (1985): "One of the signs of our times is that the announcements of 'MARIAN APPARITIONS' ARE MULTIPLYING ALL OVER THE WORLD." There are many private revelations, in particular of Our Lady, in the last century, which indicate a great chastisement that is about to befall the world. In the Old Testament, God sent many prophets and judges to awaken the people as to how far they had strayed from the truth and moral living: When they listened as at Nineveh, all went well; when they did not listen, it went very badly. In recognitions for the efforts of the prophets, they were generally put to death. Now God sends His greatest prophet in all of heaven, His Blessed Mother! Will we listen? As Sister Lucia said to Father Fuentes: “The other means exhausted and despised by men, GOD WILL GIVE WITH TREMBLING THE LAST ANCHOR OF SALVATION WHICH IS THE MOST HOLY VIRGIN IN PERSON.

Usually in these apparitions Our Lady encourages us to: meditate on the Passion of Our Lord, do much penance, pray and make many sacrifices for the conversion of sinners, receive and visit often the Blessed Sacrament, frequent confessions, do good works for ones neighbor, make reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, consecrate oneself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and pray the daily Rosary. Our Lady tells us that if enough people do these things the chastisement can be averted or at least diminished. Some of the numerous apparitions of Our Lady include: La Salette, France (1846); Fatima, Portugal (1917); St. Faustina (1925-1938; about the Second Coming; diary: 429; 848, 965, 1160, 1588, 1146, 635, 1732); Akita, Japan (1973 – 1981) (http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/akita.htm); etc.

Unfortunately most people prefer not to know these things; it is easier. After all, “Ignorance is Bliss!” We must not kill the prophets!

Jesus: “Give to God your life, your will is human, too human, attached to materialism and consumerism. FEW ARE THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE ON THE EARTH LONGING FOR THE ETERNAL LIFE IN THE ARMS OF THE FATHER. There are many, the insensitive to every recall, poor children, my brothers! The recalls have been made fully in so many messages: to many souls has appeared Mary, My Mother: and it is still happening! FEW ARE THOSE WHO BELIEVE AND THEY DO NOT GIVE IMPORTANCE TO THE RECALLS. Fools and senseless are those who are not concerned and do not run to the shelters protecting themselves under the mantle of Mary, letting themselves to be led by Her along the right path of salvation. Listen , dear souls, listen and pass over again in review all the recalls and make of them news to be divulged. They all know that no one will escape the revealing Justice of the sin committed, of the evil caused and not confessed. My souls, I will shortly let fall the arm and the go ahead to great torment will be given! (August 16, 2007; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

In the final message of the Blessed Virgin on October 13, 1973, at AKITA, JAPAN, on the anniversary of the miracle of the Sun at Fatima, she said to Sister Agnes Sasagawa: "As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be A PUNISHMENT GREATER THAN THE DELUGE, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The SURVIVORS will find themselves so desolate that they WILL ENVY THE DEAD. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the pope, the bishops, and the priests."
"The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees…churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromise and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them."
"With courage, speak to your superior. He will know how to encourage each one of you to pray and to accomplish works of reparation." (http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/akita.htm).

Jesus: “BE STRONG, MY PRIEST SONS, and begin in secret, your battle against the evil which is raging and as a hurricane the storm of “evil” on My Church will rage.” (April 14, 2004; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa04eng.html).

God the Father: “PRAY FOR MY PRIEST CHILDREN, PRAY BECAUSE THEY ARE NOW TAKEN UP BY THE NET OF THE DEVIL WHO SEEKS TO ATTRACT THEM INTO HIS BOAT: but the boat of ‘Peter’ is so strong that he will not succeed in transporting all of them! No, because WITH ‘PETER’ THERE ARE THE TRUE APOSTLES WHO DRAW TO GOD HIS CHILDREN. Yes, my souls, the battle of the spirit is in act and it is convulsively implemented before your eyes: evident to all the movement which is anticlerical. My children, be the sentries always on the lookout that there might not be other promoters of disorder. May your constant prayer be the official weapon for the salvation of the souls consecrated to Me.” (January 15, 2008; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa08eng.html).

Jesus: “TO OFFEND THE MINISTERIAL WORK OF A PRIEST WITH ACCUSATIONS AND INFAMY, IS THE WORST OF FAULTS THAT A CHRISTIAN CAN COMMIT: and it is not good to feed their pride. Admonish, my daughter and get across this My disposition: “Woe to the one who slanders a child of God and even more so My minister, representative of the Son of God, High Priest; better for him to hide himself at the moment of My arrival on earth”! (September 25, 2005; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

In June 1988 Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, gave definitive judgment on Our Lady of Akita events and messages as reliable and worthy of belief. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Lady_of_Akita).

MEDJUGORJE AND GARABANDAL ARE CLOSELY ASSOCIATED. Each has a set of secrets about the future. Each predicts that a miraculous Permanent Sign will be placed on earth (at Garabandal and at Medjugorje). This event is called the Miracle of Garabandal, and the third secret of Medjugorje. The faithful who believe in Garabandal usually also believe in Medjugorje. And both of these claimed private revelations have no current approval from the local Bishops or from the Holy See. (http://www.catholicplanet.com/secrets/revised-dates.htm).

“The True Charismatics Are Recognized Because That Which They Write Happens” (September 21, 2007; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

One of the seers at Garabandal, Conchita, wrote: "THE WARNING COMES DIRECTLY FROM GOD AND WILL BE VISIBLE TO THE WHOLE WORLD AND FROM ANY PLACE WHERE ANYONE MAY HAPPEN TO BE. It will be like the revelation of our sins and it will be seen and felt by everyone, believer and unbeliever alike irrespective of whatever religion they may belong to. It will be seen and felt in all parts of the world and by every person. It will happen in the sky; no one can prevent it form happening. We will even prefer to be dead rather than to pass through this “Warning”. It will not kill us. It will be a "correction" of our conscience. It will cause great fear and will make us reflect within ourselves on the consequences of our own personal sins. It will be like a warning of the punishment to come. In this way the world will be offered a means of purification to prepare itself for the extraordinary grace of the “Great Miracle”.”
Jacinta was told by Our Blessed Mother "that the warning would come when conditions were at their worst." The date was not revealed to the visionaries, however Mari-Loli does know the year; and she said that “The Miracle” will happen within one year after “The Warning”. (http://www.garabandal.org/story.shtml).

“AFTER THE THREE WARNINGS, THE PERMANENT VISIBLE SIGN WILL BE LEFT ON THE MOUNTAIN WHERE OUR LADY FIRST APPEARED IN MEDJUGORJE. Those who are still alive will have little time for conversion. For that reason, the Blessed Virgin calls for urgent conversion and reconciliation. The permanent sign will lead to many healings and conversions before the messages become reality.” (Overview of Medjugorje; http://www.medjugorje.org/overview.htm; also: http://www.medjugormag.com/).

“I can tell you that the Warning is at the door and that you will hear the knocking. I WILL KNOCK AT EACH HEART, I will call each one by name, I will ask for their willingness in receiving me. (April 17, 2001; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo9902eng.html).

“Bring Me to your brothers; make them understand that soon there will be a Warning. Many know it, but many still do not know anything; they will be frightened, they will not understand what is going on, but they will understand very soon. I WILL SPEAK TO THEIR CONSCIENCES, I WILL MAKE THEM RELIVE THEIR SINS, THEY WILL SEE THE ROT OF THEIR RUINED FLESH DUE TO SIN… (10/22/2001; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa9902eng.html).

“WHEN IN THE SKY MY CROSS WILL STAND OUT FOR MANY THERE WILL BE TORMENT AND TERROR” (February 9, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html). “

“BUT FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN THE TRUTH OF MY WORD WILL HAVE JOY AND SERENITY OF SPIRIT TO JUBILATE AND SHOUT: COME LORD JESUS, we are ready to come with You, You are our King. Amen. Alleluia! (February 9, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

“Be ready, vigilant, because I will come and all will see me. … IN THE SKY WILL APPEAR A SIGN OF THE CROSS, ALL WILL SEE IT! And while all will be with the head up, you check out everything, because the events that will follow will be powerful and will sensitize every heart.

55. The Maya CalendarGod created the entire universe in view of His Son Jesus Christ as well as His Body, the Church. THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM has fascinated many for centuries. For millennia, believers, scoffers and the curious have wondered at the Biblical account of the Star. The Bible recounts unusual, or even impossible astronomical events at Christ's birth. For many doubters, the account of the Star is easily dismissed as myth. For many believers, it's a mystery accepted on faith. But what happens if we combine current historical scholarship, astronomical fact and an open mind?

Using Johannes Kepler's discovery of how the solar system works, improvements in our knowledge of first century history and the spread of computers, one discovers that in September, about 16 month before the birth of Christ, the wise men from the East saw something in the sky that they had NEVER SEEN BEFORE. The “King Planet”, Jupiter, made a triple pass around the “King Star”, Regulus, like a coronation. Then after Jupiter finished its rendezvous with Regulus in June of the following year, it moved beside Venus giving the impression of the most brilliant star the wise men had ever seen with the naked eye. That particular evening, our Babylonian wise men, who were good astronomers as well as well informed of Jewish prophecy, would have seen the spectacle of their career while facing toward Judea. Surely this prompted them to start off on their long journey toward Judea following the star all the way to Jerusalem which we read about in the Gospel of Matthew chapter 2. Read more at the web site (http://bethlehemstar.net/).

How many very intelligent astronomers and scientists there are today who do not believe in God? You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink! Let us give praise to God for His marvels in His creation! FOR MANY PEOPLE TODAY, SCIENCE IS INFALLIBLE, BUT NOT CHRIST OR THE POPE.

WE MUST DISTINGUISH HERE BETWEEN OBSERVING THE SIGNS OF GOD IN HIS CREATION AND ASTROLOGY.

ASTROLOGY holds that stars exert forces on men. Astrology assumes that stars are causes of earthly events. Astrology is a: "...form of divination based on the theory that the movement of the celestial bodies - the stars, the planets, the sun and the moon - influence human affairs and determine the course of events." (The New Columbia Encyclopedia (New York: Columbia University Press, 1975).

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states, "All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to ‘unveil’ the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone" (CCC 2116). See also: Job 31:26-28; Deut 17:2-5; 2Kings 23:4.

Still, the Bible does make a surprising number of references to signs in the heavens. See: Job 9:9; 38:31; Is 40:26; Ps 19:1-4; Rm 10:17-18; Lk 21:25; Deut 4:19.

BOTH OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS ASSUME THAT WHAT HAPPENS UP THERE MATTERS. If we are interested in following the counsel of the Bible, we must hold a distinction in mind. The Bible assumes that there can be messages about earthly events. It may be useful to think of this as a thermometer distinction. A thermometer can TELL you if it's hot or cold, but it can't MAKE you hot or cold. There is a big difference between a sign and an active agent. This is the difference between "astrology" and what the Bible holds forth.

Another interesting fact regarding the divine creation of the universe is that the astronomers of the ancient Maya had precisely foreseen, more than 1500 years ago, THE EXACT ALIGNMENT of the Earth, of the Sun, of the star cluster of the Pleiades and of the center of our Galaxy, which will happen at the end of our present long cycle, in the Gregorian year 2012. On the Maya calendar the designated day of 4 Ahau 3 Kankin (13.0.0.0.0) falls on December 21, 2012 and this day will sign “El Fin de los Tiempos” or the end of the long cycle, when humanity will experience a new beginning. This day, according to the Maya and the successive civilization Meso-American, will happen at the return of Kukulcan (Quetzalcoatl). All scientific evidence has shown the Mayan Long Count astronomical predictions to be accurate. The last time the planets and the stars were in this alignment was 26,000 years ago. December 21, 2012 is a date of amazing historical significance and the end of a complete time cycle. See: “2012 Frequently Asked Questions” at http://www.2012officialcountdown.com/faq.html.

It would be even more interesting if our modern day astronomers might be capable of discovering if our Galaxy will be at the center of the Universe on the same day of December 21, 2012! We Catholics celebrate every year, the last Sunday of the liturgical year (34th of Ordinary Time), the great feast of our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe! “For in Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, … all things were created through Him and for Him” (Col 1:16)!

After presenting the above question TO AN ASTRONOMER FROM THE USA, he sent me the following email: “There is no center or edge to the universe. This is the essence of the Copernican Principle, which is fundamental to all successful scientific theories. This basically means the universe looks the same wherever you are. It has no preferred location or "center." The common question I get is "where did the Big Bang happen?" The Big Bang created expanding space and so the "center" is, well, everywhere and nowhere. If you picture 3-dimensional space as the 2D skin of and inflating balloon, there is to "center" to the balloon's surface (yes, the balloon does have a center, but that's off in another dimension in this analogy.) Most people find this answer unsatisfactory, but the universe would be pretty messed up if it were constructed any other way. The universe is 13.7 billion years old, and all observations give it a healthy prognosis for at least the next 1 trillion years. So there is no impending "transition" or "grand alignment" coming up in the state of Earth or the cosmos.”

Obviously GOD KNOWS ALL THINGS! Even though many people have the tendency to exaggerate and the desire to make too much out of these extraordinary occurrences, this very rare alignment will not happen by chance! God created the universe, which moves like a huge precise clock. The universe was above all created for the King of the Universe, Jesus Christ, and secondarily for human beings. Is it possible that God has chosen this date as the Second Coming of his Son to the earth? THIS IS ONLY MY PERSONAL QUESTION AND SPECULATION! If so, according to many biblical scholars, the Antichrist must appear before His second coming! Only the Father knows (Mt 24:36; Mk 13:32)! The correspondence between the prophecies of Saint Malachy and the Maya calendar are rather interesting. St. Hildegard of Bingen indicates that the false Prophet of the Antichrist will appear immediately before the Antichrist just as St. John the Baptist appeared shortly before Jesus Christ; it seems that the Antichrist apes the real Christ, thus having his own precursor also, which is referred to the Sacred Scriptures as the “false prophet” or the “second beast”. I personally am keeping my eye on possible anniversary dates of October 13, 1917, since I believe Jesus wants to give very special honor to His Mother in this period of world history as was indicated at Fatima in 1917!

56. The Two Beasts of the ApocalypsePerhaps when one reads the Book of Revelations, in particular chapter 13, one might get the impression that the persons who will appear as the first beast (Rev 13:1-10) and the second beast (Rev 13:11-18), the false prophet (Rev 16:13; 19:20; 20:10), will be fierce and ferocious and perhaps hideous or whatever. But instead these two personages will be VERY AFFABLE AND ATTRACTIVE AND CHARISMATIC!

POPE BENEDICT ON THE BEAST:
In his recent book, Jesus of Nazareth, Pope Benedict XVI, in a comment on the prayer of the Our Father, wrote this about the Beast of the Apocalypse: “We see before us the dragon of which the Book of Revelation speaks. ‘Then another sign appeared in Heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.’ [Rev. 12:3.) John portrays the ‘beast rising out of the sea,’ out of the dark depths of evil, with the symbols of Roman imperial power, and he thus puts a very concrete face on the threat facing the Christians of his day: the total claim placed upon man by the emperor cult and the resulting elevation of political-military-economic might to the peak of absolute power — to the personification of the evil that threatens to devour us. “Notwithstanding the dissolution of the Roman Empire and its ideologies, this remains very contemporary! Today there are on one hand the forces of the market, of traffic in weapons, in drugs, and in human beings, all forces that weigh upon the world and ensnare humanity irresistibly.”

CARDINAL BIFFI ON THE ANTICHRIST:
The Times of London reported in 2004 that the Cardinal described the Antichrist as "walking among us". (http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2007/mar/07030101.html). Papal watchers are wondering what message Pope Benedict XVI was giving when he selected retired Bologna, Italy, archbishop Cardinal Giacomo Biffi to preach the annual Lenten retreat (the “Spiritual Exercises”) to the Pope and the top members of the Vatican (Feb. 27, 2007). And guess what was the topic ? The Antichrist ! Cardinal Biffi based his lectures on the last book of the great Russian philosopher Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov (1853-1900), “The Three Dialogues and the Story of the Antichrist”, in which the Antichrist is elected president of the United States of Europe, acclaimed as emperor in Rome, takes possession of the entire world, and finally imposes his command even over the life and organization of the Churches. Here is a news report from the Catholic news agency Zenit: Cardinal Giacomo Biffi, retired archbishop of Bologna, delivered this message during meditation Tuesday, drawing on the work of Russian philosopher Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov. The cardinal’s meditation came during the weeklong Spiritual Exercises being attended by the Pope and members of the Roman Curia.

“According to Vatican Radio’s summary of his preaching, the cardinal explained that ‘the teaching that the great Russian philosopher left us is that Christianity cannot be reduced to a set of values. At the center of being a Christian is, in fact, the personal encounter with Jesus Christ.’ Quoting the work “Three Dialogues on War”, “Progress and the End of History”, Cardinal Biffi told his listeners that ‘the Antichrist presents himself as pacifist, ecologist and ecumenist.’ “‘He will convoke an ecumenical council and will seek the consensus of all the Christian confessions, granting something to each one. The masses will follow him, with the exception of small groups of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants,’ he said. The cardinal added that Solovyov says in that work: ‘Days will come in Christianity in which they will try to reduce the salvific event to a mere series of values.’ “In his “Tale of the Antichrist” Solovyov foresees that a small group of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants will resist and will say to the Antichrist: ‘You give us everything, except what interests us, Jesus Christ’.”
For Cardinal Biffi, this narrative is a warning: ‘Today, in fact, we run the risk of having a Christianity which puts aside Jesus with his cross and resurrection.’
“The 78-year-old cardinal said that if Christians ‘limited themselves to speaking of shared values they would be more accepted on television programs and in social groups. But in this way, they will have renounced Jesus, the overwhelming reality of the resurrection.’ THE CARDINAL SAID HE BELIEVES THAT THIS IS ‘THE DANGER THAT CHRISTIANS FACE IN OUR DAYS… THE SON OF GOD CANNOT BE REDUCED TO A SERIES OF GOOD PROJECTS SANCTIONED BY THE PREVAILING WORLDLY MENTALITY… There are relative values, such as solidarity, love of peace and respect for nature. If these become absolute, uprooting or even opposing the proclamation of the event of salvation, then these values become an instigation to idolatry and obstacles on the way of salvation.”

It is also not by chance that there are many verses in the Bible regarding the period of the Second Coming of Christ. So too the Church has chosen the readings from the Bible regarding prophecy and the Second Coming of Christ during the last week or two of the liturgical cycle each year!

THE SECOND BEAST will be a world religious leader, impersonating Christ (“like a lamb”; Rev 13:11), and will seek to induce all to "worship the image" of the first Beast (which will be able to speak! (Rev 13:15)), the Antichrist, performing "miracles" (Rev 19:20; 13:13; 2Thess 2:9) and "signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect" (Mt 24:24; Mk 13:22; Rev 13:8)! This false Prophet will lead many away (Rev 13:4) from Christ, the only true Savior of the world. The devil normally comes disguised as an Angel of light in order to lead astray as many as possible! St. Hildegard indicates that “two-thirds of the Christians will go with him”, this evil cardinal, the false prophet!

“… the one who is a DICTATOR AND WILL BRING ABOUT PERTURBATION, HE WILL BRING A TRUE APOSTASY!” (April 7, 2005; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa0507eng.html).

In the past I indicated to some of my friends that Obama is probably not the antichrist! But when I began to realize that abortion is one of the greatest sins, and that Obama promotes abortion as his highest (sly and hidden) priority, I began to reconsider especially after I discovered how many Hebrew scholars indicate how Jesus would have pronounced Luke 10:18 in Aramaic: “And I saw Satan as Baraq U Bam-Maw.” DID JESUS GIVE US AN INDICATION IN THIS VERSE ABOUT THE IDENTITY OF THE ANTICHRIST? As Gloria Polo put it: “Abortion is the worst of all the sins (those provoked, not when it is spontaneous), because to kill the children still in the womb of the mother, to kill a little innocent and defenseless creature, IS TO GIVE POWER TO SATAN.” Did the Council of Foreign Relations member and Trilateralist Henry Kissinger throw out just empty words? “Obama primed to create New World Order” (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?pageId=85442)?

PERHAPS I TOO TENDED TO PUT THE ANTICHRIST IN SUCH AN UNUSUAL CATEGORY THAT HE WAS ALMOST NOT HUMAN. But Satan has more power over individuals and over society the more we sin and the less we pray. Satan is constrained by God to respect our free wills; Satan has power over us only to the point that we freely give our consent and we freely choose to yield to his temptations day by day. This is why it is such an incredibly and seemingly illogical high priority for Obama to promote abortion and embryonic stem cell research and other grave sins, even against the will of the majority of Americans, as well as to undermine the true teachings of the Catholic Church and her loyal followers. Also THESE PUPPETS OF SATAN BECOME MORE CONTROLLED BY SATAN THE MORE THEY FREELY GIVE THEIR WILLS TO SATAN, just as happens to every person who follows Satan instead of God. So too, the antichrist will ultimately become totally possessed by Satan; it seems that Satan will even eventually incarnate himself into the body of the antichrist. See “The Wounding of the Beast” below. The person who will become the antichrist does not know he is the antichrist; he continually and freely gives his consent and will to the temptations and allurements of Satan so as to become more and more a very docile puppet of Satan.

President Obama is young, charismatic, and a good speaker, but underneath that appealing outward show, I believe, is a very cruel and godless individual who is full of pride. “In his place shall arise a contemptible person to whom royal majesty has not been given; he shall come in without warning (senator for only a few years without a birth certificate!) and obtain the kingdom by flatteries” (Dan 11:21). It was rather incredible how so many people, immediately after the election of November 2008, of all races and religions were dancing and raising their hands as if praising him.

BUT WHAT PEACE IF THEY MAKE WAR! BUT WHAT LOVE, IF THEY KILL EACH OTHER!

In a report published in ‘The Week’ entitled ‘How they see Us: Obama’s domination of Europe’, VAN ROMPUY SAYS THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS EFFECTIVELY DEPOSED OF THE ‘PERMANENT’ PRESIDENT OF THE E.U. Jean Quatremer said in his blog that Barack H. OBAMA HAS BECOME ‘THE DE FACTO PRESIDENT OF THE E.U.’ As the Greek debt crisis threatened to spread in recent weeks, European leaders bickered over whether and how to fund a bigger bailout: the putative E.U. President, Herman Van Rompuy, simply watched them, wringing his hands, knowing the Euro’s collapse might trigger a tsunami that could devastate the planet. President Obama took action after repeatedly phoning German Chancellor Angela Merkel; he finally got her to sign on to the rescue, succeeding where the best efforts of European leaders had failed. Then Obama phoned Spanish prime minister Jose Luis Zapatero and practically ordered him to cut the Spanish deficit in half so that Spain wouldn’t be the next domain to fall. It’s as if America’s President staged a coup; perhaps Obama and the New World Order are not quite ready yet to take the next step with their diabolical solution in rendering us their total absolute slaves, most likely with individual implanted microchips for everyone. Barack H. Obama has concluded that “…Only the big European States have the clout” to do anything. So he has begun dealing with a select clique compromising Britain, France, and Germany. Each month, Obama has a video conference with the leaders of these three countries to discuss areas of joint concern, such as Afghanistan, the mid-east and the financial crisis as well. (Google translation of “France’s Liberation Link”: http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://bruxelles.blogs.liberation.fr/coulisses/2010/05/barack-obama-the-president-of-the-european-council-potec.html&ei=sM0cTLK3HKS0MPWPvZMF&sa=X&oi=translate&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CBkQ7gEwAA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Djean%2Bquatremer%2Bliberation%2Bon%2BObama%26hl%3Den).

But many are waking up to the absurdity of Obama’s agenda! “Merkel Rejects Obama's Call to Spend - German chancellor rebuffs pressure to boost domestic demand, not exports; warns Europe's crisis is far from over” (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703900004575324941614808602.html).

I have a certain suspicion that Obama, who has a lot more clout and power than what he is revealing, would prefer not to let the American people vote in November 2010. It is becoming clear that the majority of the American people are finally waking up. “New Republic: 'Barack Obama Faces a Moment Where His Presidency Just Might Collapse'” (http://newsbusters.org/blogs/p-j-gladnick/2010/01/27/new-republic-barack-obama-faces-moment-where-his-presidency-just-might). Obama cannot risk losing the democratic majority in Congress, even though he has so many of his czars, radicals and very liberal activist judges in key places rendering our government already a de facto dictatorship with the facade of democracy. Most likely there will break out a war in the middle east before November 2010. See “Damascus Destroyed?” and “The Third World War” below. Obama and his New World Order colleagues have at their disposal by now, having led us into sin and neglect of prayer, many possible strings to pull so as to orchestrate the fulfillment of their world domination!

“Obama Is A 'One-Term President': Investment Pro” (http://www.cnbc.com/id/37893478).

When I consider the prophecy of St. Hildegard as well as Margaret of Jesus, I would not be surprised if something might happen to Pope Benedict sometime soon (perhaps when he goes to the UK in September 16-19, 2010?). WE MIGHT SEE ST. HILDEGARD’S PROPHECY FULFILLED SOON: “When the new Pope is elected immediately before the Antichrist, a cardinal will kill the elected pope before he is crowned through jealousy, he wishing to be Pope himself. Then when the other cardinals elect the next Pope this cardinal will proclaim himself (anti) Pope, and two-thirds of the Christians will go with him.” Perhaps this phrase “immediately before the Antichrist” might indicate that Obama will finally reveal himself as the one Henry Kissinger said was “Obama primed to create New World Order” (Jan. 6, 2009).

“The end of the dark times will be after three days. In the meantime disasters will break out a little bit everywhere. WHEN YOU WILL HEAR THAT THE POPE WILL BE PUT ASIDE, begin to ask yourselves if all is all right and continue the prayers: unceasing must be prayer! Now if it will be before or after the darkness, this is not given to you to know.” (July 1, 1999; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa9902eng.html).

“THE DECEIVER WILL SOON SHOW HIMSELF, he will come to the limelight as a great personality, capable of strongly presenting himself, courageous before all and everyone, but do not let yourselves be fooled! (09/01/2004; (http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa04eng.html).

“God the Father: “My soul, you did well to put ‘on the alert’ your brothers of prayer [about the antichrist], because TRULY IN A SHORT WHILE THE ENEMY WILL TAKE INTERNATIONAL CONTACT, in order to guide you toward his intent to program the mind of the human beings, in order to be able to subjugate them and draw them into deception.” (04/19/2008; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa08eng.html).

“THE HOSTILE SPIRITUAL TAKEOVER OF OUR NATION”. “Anyone who has watched national politics closely in the past year and a half has seen a panoply of aggressive political moves that are reported about in hostile terms. There are government "takeovers" of huge industries, public officials "moving against" businesses and individuals, court decisions "striking down" statutes and executive initiatives "attacking" fundamentally sane institutions and plans. Even in times of war, I don't think we have ever had such violent social and political maneuvering in our public life. The worst aspect of it is that all the rapaciousness is directed inward. If we were laying waste the enemies of the innocent citizens of our society in the same way we are consuming our own healthy institutions, how different our public life would be! The current hostile initiatives are nothing of the sort, however. They are essentially demonic takeovers of sacred institutions by the pagans who hold the reins of power….” (http://www.hli.org/index.php?option=com_acajoom&act=mailing&task=view&listid=2&mailingid=709).

“One day the Antichrist will come: a human being who introduces an order of things in which rebellion against God will attain its ultimate power. He will be filled with enlightenment and strength. The ultimate aim of all aims will be to prove that existence without Christ is possible - nay rather, that Christ is the enemy of existence, which can be full realized only WHEN ALL CHRISTIAN VALUES HAVE BEEN DESTROYED. His arguments will be some impressive, supported by means of such tremendous power - violent and diplomatic, material and intellectual - that to reject them will result in almost insurmountable scandal, and everyone whose eyes are not opened by grace will be lost. Then it will be clear what the Christian essence really is: that which stems not from the world, but from the heart of God; victory of grace over the world; redemption of the world, for her true essence is not to be found in herself, but in God...When God becomes all in all, the world will finally burst into flower” - Romano Guardini (http://lasalettejourney.blogspot.com/2009_10_01_archive.html).

57. The New World ReligionThe world controllers, being guided by the most intelligent creature ever created, Lucifer, realize that people need a religion, something to believe in. Thus rather than outlawing all religions, which would cause an unwanted reaction, THEY WILL OFFER A WORLD RELIGION, with this charismatic antichrist at the head with the help of the false prophet, this imposter and usurper of the Papal See. There are various indications that things will not get really out of hand world wide until the Pope will have to “flee from Rome”, and then probably die “a cruel death”. Perhaps at that point the evil cardinal will carry out the orders from his superiors to insert himself into the seat of Peter since he will not be elected as he had hoped. Most likely shortly after this event, the economy will be brought down, and then after this Russia will fulfill the prophecies of Fatima as well as those found in the books of Ezekiel, Joel, etc.

When one understands what this New World Order really is, and how it is being gradually implemented, one can see it progressing in our daily news. What is really the motive and goal of “THE PARLIAMENT OF THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS” at Melbourne, Australia on December 3-9, 2009 in which over 5000 people of just about all the religions of the world are coming? It sounds like a noble effort, but what exactly is "religious extremism" that they want to eliminate? Is it those who preach the Bible where homosexual acts are condemned as a sin, or those who peacefully try to persuade women not to murder the child in the womb while offering her viable alternatives? Who defines what religious views are extreme? Why is "human security" an important goal in their agenda? Is not security the very club that has been used to beat the rights out of U.S. citizens? It is interesting this mobilizing in times of national and global crisis! It sounds far too convenient for the New World Order's hopes to seize power. Such an organization of a well orchestrated One World Religion could be easily turned to support the world planners who are feverishly working to form their perfect world Order and Religion. It is also interesting the coincidence of scheduling.

Much is being made of Barack Obama's experience of being a 'community organizer.' SAUL ALINSKY, A MARXIST HUMANIST AND ATHEIST, once spoke of the this type of service. Mr. Alinsky died in 1972 and apparently is a mentor for many people on the left including Obama. It appears, he was also a founding father of the cancerous 'moral relativist' agenda which is destroying our modern day society and it's laws. Here is A QUOTE FROM SAUL ALINSKY that might send shivers down your spine; it did mine. "Truth is relative and changing; everything is relative and changing.... The first step in community organization is community disorganization....the organizer, dedicated to changing the life of a particular community must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy..."
It gets better, or I should say worse...
"They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future... The job of the organizer is to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a dangerous enemy. Such a counterattack then puts the ORGANIZER on the side of the people...A revolutionary ORGANIZER must shake up the prevailing patterns of the people lives-agitate, created disenchantment and discontent with the current values to produce a passion for CHANGE."
Yes, of course - CHANGE. (http://www.treeoflifesword.com/Barack-Obama-Marxist-community-organizer.html).

Most Americans revile socialism, yet Barack Obama’s poll numbers remain competitive. One explanation: He’s a longtime disciple of a Saul Alinsky whose mission was to teach radicals to disguise their ideology. OBAMA’S RHETORICAL WINDOW-DRESSING IS EASILY RECOGNIZABLE AS ALINSKYESQUE CAMOUFLAGE. New annual spending of more than $340 billion, as estimated by the National Taxpayers Union, is merely a wish to “recast” the safety net woven by FDR and LBJ, as Obama describes it in his writings. The free market is disparaged as a “winner-take-all” economy. Big tax increases masquerade as “restoring fairness to the economy.”
Barack Obama’s “CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN” IS SIMPLY SOCIALISM — imposed by stratagem because Americans have never believed in Marxist economics. Saul Alinsky understood this, and his ghost is alive and well — and threatening to haunt the White House.
http://www.commonsensejunction.com/?p=3700

The following is a quotation from AmericanPatrol.com: “Saul Alinsky wrote two books outlining his organizational principles and strategies: Reveille for Radicals (1946) and Rules for Radicals (1971). Rules for Radicals opens with a quote about Lucifer, written by Saul Alinsky: "Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins -- or which is which), THE FIRST RADICAL KNOWN TO MAN WHO REBELLED AGAINST THE ESTABLISHMENT AND DID IT SO EFFECTIVELY THAT HE AT LEAST WON HIS OWN KINGDOM -- LUCIFER."

In Rules for Radicals, Alinsky says: "Here I propose to present an arrangement of certain facts and general concepts of change, a step toward a science of revolution." He builds on the tactical principles of Machiavelli: "The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-nots on how to take it away." Rules for Radicals is concerned with the acquisition of power: "MY AIM HERE IS TO SUGGEST HOW TO ORGANIZE FOR POWER: HOW TO GET IT AND HOW TO USE IT."

“GLOBAL WARMING SCIENCE? NOPE, GLOBAL WARMING SCAM” by Steven W. Mosher (http://pop.org/200912151001/global-warming-science-nope-global-warming-scam).

“SCARE WATCH: Global Warming Will Kill Six Billion” ?!?
The scare: In March 2009, Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber, director of a grand-sounding pressure-group called the “Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research”, said that “global warming” of 7 Fahrenheit degrees would wipe out all but 1 billion of Earth’s 7 billion human population.
Mr. Schellnhuber said, “In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science, because at last we have stabilized something – namely the estimate of the carrying capacity of the planet – fewer than 1 billion people.” The planet, of course, is somehow currently carrying seven times that number. The previous month, Dr. James Hansen of NASA had predicted that “global warming” would raise sea level by 75 meters – equivalent to 246 feet.
The truth: In every respect, Mr. Schellnhuber’s outlandish prediction is as absurd as that of Dr. Hansen. IT LACKS ANY CREDIBLE SCIENTIFIC FOUNDATION. We may dispose of Dr. Hansen’s prediction in the single, withering sentence of Mr. Justice Burton in the High Court of England and Wales in October 2007, condemning Al Gore’s suggestion that sea level would imminently rise by less than one-twelfth of Dr. Hansen’s flagrant prediction – “The Armageddon scenario that he depicts is not based on any scientific view. …..” (http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/scarewatch/6_billion.html).

It is so important to vote for and discover who our political candidates are not by their smooth, beautiful, nice, rhetorical words, but BY THEIR DEEDS AND VOTING RECORD! “Thus you will know them by their fruits” (Mt 7:20). Their fruits can be rather hidden and yet far more destructive to our country, world and society than we might possibly realize!

58. Hope and Salvation!Some might accuse me of being a pessimist. I AM NOT A PESSIMIST BUT A REALIST! We have evicted God from our bedrooms, from our schools, from our public life and public environments! What can we expect??? We reap what we sow!

But for those who believe and love Jesus Christ and Him in every neighbor and are ready to die for Him, this period of the greatest tribulation in the history of the world (Mt 24:21-22; Jer 30:7; Dan 12:1) will not be a time of desperation but of hope and salvation (Mt 24:13; Lk 21:28,36; Jn 14:1-3; 1Thess 4:16-18; Rev 15:2; 12:11; 3:10)! "Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when he comes shall find watching ... and doing" (Lk 12:37;43; see also 1Pet 2:9; Rev 12:11; 1:6).

One might ask at this point: “WHAT CAN WE DO?” As Pope John Paul II revealed in 1980, “it is no longer possible to avert [this trial]”. I think the best thing to do is to heed the message that our Mother Mary revealed to Lucia of Fatima: “From when the Holy Virgin gave such a great efficaciousness to the Rosary, there does not exist any material, spiritual, national or international problem that cannot be resolved WITH THE HOLY ROSARY AND WITH OUR SACRIFICES. To recite it with devotion will be to consol Mary and to wipe away so many tears from her Immaculate Heart.” Among many other things, it is also important to avoid the very numerous bad shows on TV today and watch wholesome beneficial programs such as EWTN (http://www.ewtn.com/).

As “sacrifices” we can certainly fast as the people of Nineveh did after Jonah cried against the city (Jonah 1:2; 3:5). “The men of Nineveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah” (Mt 12:41). But the best and most efficacious sacrifices are loving those who are the most difficult for us to love (see “The Hope of the World!” at http://trueevangelization.blogspot.com/2008/03/evangelization-vs-trinity-of-devils.html).

“ALSO THE WARS CAN STOP WITH PRAYER AND FASTING! Come on therefore, make the union in the army of Mary and fast at least on Fridays, and the one who can may he do it also on Wednesdays. (November 11, 2006; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html).

The body of the Rosary are the prayers of the Our Father, the Hail Mary (Luke 1) and the Glory Be. The soul of the Rosary are the 20 meditations on the life of Jesus seen through the eyes of His mother Mary. The Rosary is a tremendous way of actually PRAYING THE GOSPEL! But of course it is important and essential to LIVE THE ROSARY, to live the Gospel, by loving ever more Jesus as well as each and every neighbor (especially “the least of these my brethren”!) that stands before us in each present moment of the day as if each person were Jesus Himself (Mt 25:40), ready to die for each person as Jesus died for each of us! If we do this, we have done all that we can for ourselves, our family, our country and for the world; God will take care of the rest, even if the rest might entail the great gift and crown of martyrdom for many of us, with His help! “Tribulation is a gift from God - one that He especially gives to His special friends.” – St. Thomas More.

IT IS NOT BY CHANCE THAT POPE BENEDICT WENT TO FATIMA; it is not by chance that Pope John Paul II went to Fatima three times. It is not by chance that when the three shepherd children asked the beautiful Lady her name she responded: “I am the Lady of the Rosary!” Let us listen to our heavenly mother. Let us pray the Holy Rosary!

In 1867, Father Désilets found 1000 hard-to-handle parishioners who knew little about the Faith and couldn't care less. No matter how hard he tried to reach them, the church remained basically empty on Sunday, with even fewer coming during the week, if that was possible. Was God to allow this to continue? One night, Father was returning from hearing confessions in the vestry, when he stopped inside the church to pray. His heart almost broke! It was the eve of the Ascension and the church was empty! Then what should he see but a pig with a rosary dangling from his mouth! The thought came to him: "THE ROSARY FALLS FROM MEN'S HANDS TO BE PICKED UP BY THE SWINE." What did he do? He wiped his tears, "girded his loins," put on the "armor of God" and consecrated himself to Our Lady of the Rosary! He immediately began promoting devotion to the Rosary. At first, the reception was very cool, but little by little, more and more men, women and children flocked to the church to pray the Rosary. He restored the Brotherhood of the Rosary, which Father Vachon had founded 100 years before. The little church which had been empty, now could no longer hold the congregation. Talk began again, to build a new, larger church. [What can Our Lady do, if we only pray!] (http://www.bobandpennylord.com/Blessed_Frederic.htm).

THE MOST HOLY ROSARY AND THE BROWN SCAPULAR
"The Rosary and the scapular are inseparable!" -Sister Lucia of Fatima
“In the early part of the thirteenth century, St. Dominic, St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Angelus the Carmelite accidentally met one day on a street corner in Rome (a chapel still stands at the spot to commemorate this event). St. Dominic then uttered a famous prophecy: ‘To my Order, the Blessed Virgin will entrust a devotion to be known as the rosary and to your Order, Angelus, she will entrust a devotion to be known as the scapular. ONE DAY, THROUGH THE ROSARY AND THE SCAPULAR, SHE WILL SAVE THE WORLD.’” Perhaps this promise will be particularly evident and needed when the world socialistic dictators will forbid the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the healing and saving sacrament of confession!

MARY'S PROMISE TO THOSE WHO WEAR THE SCAPULAR
Our Lady gave St. Simon a scapular for the Carmelites with the following promise, saying : Receive, My beloved son, this habit of thy order: this shall be to thee and to all Carmelites a privilege, that whosoever dies clothed in this shall never suffer eternal fire .... It shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger, and a pledge of peace.
Another important aspect of wearing the Scapular is the Sabbatine Privilege. This concerns a promise made by Our Lady to Pope John XXII. In a papal letter he issued, he recounted a vision that he had. He stated that the Blessed Virgin had said to him in this vision, concerning those who wear the Brown Scapular: "I, the Mother of Grace, shall descend on the Saturday after their death and whomsoever I shall find in Purgatory, I shall free, so that I may lead them to the holy mountain of life everlasting."
There are three requirements to make oneself eligible for this privilege: 1st, we must wear the Scapular; 2nd, observe Chastity according to our state of life and 3rd, recite the Little Office of Our Blessed Mother (The Rosary can be substituted for the office by obtaining permission from a priest.) Our Lady revealed to Venerable Dominic of Jesus and Mary: “Although many wear my Scapular, only a few fulfil the conditions for the SABBATINE PRIVILEGE.” (http://cibo-spir.blogspot.com/2010/07/scapolare.html).

“Call on your angel; wear something blessed on yourselves” (March 16, 2004; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0304eng.html).

Very soon, as has happened when the oppressive regimes came to power in the last 100 years and before, the Eucharist and the other sacraments will be taken away from us and thus OUR MOST POWERFUL WEAPONS left to us will be precisely what Our Lady has so often told us: PRAYER AND SACRIFICE! We must avail ourselves of these most precious gifts, the Sacraments while we still have them. Remember the dream of St. John Bosco, with a ship (the Church) in the middle of a great storm, with the Pope at the helm, being attacked by many small ships from all sides, being guided between the two pillars with the Eucharist and Mary at the top of the two pillars. Let us cling to Jesus in the Eucharist as long as we can and Mary our mother with the living Pope at the helm of the great Ship! “Holy Church – that Mother who is also a Queen because she is a King’s Bride.” – St. Therese of Lisieux

One finds frequently in the Bible the phrase “The mercy of the Lord endures forever” (Ps 118, 136 etc.), BUT ONLY FOR THOSE WHO ASK FOR MERCY; God is totally respectful of our most primary gift, our free will. If we do not ask for mercy, God will give us no mercy! Catholics should frequent the sacrament of Confession at least once a month and the Holy Eucharist at least once a week while we still have these sublime and most powerful means to prepare for the greatest trial in the history of the world!

In the late 1940’s, Msgr. Fulton Sheen began to express much skepticism about the future, about the oncoming decades. In his very classic study written prior to World War II, “Peace of Soul”, he offers an interesting commentary on the times: “The world may have departed so far from God and the path to its own peace that A TRAGEDY WOULD BE THE GREATEST MERCY. The worst thing God could do to us would be to let us alone in our present chaos and defilement. All of the conflicts of the world have not made the world better but worse. And one wonders if the next catastrophe will be a war in the same sense of the last, or rather some calamity more surely calculated to produce repentance in man.”

Many calamities have come and gone since the late 1930’s when Fulton Sheen wrote those words, BUT MAN HAS NOT COME TO REPENTANCE. There has not been an overall, massive conversion of humanity. In fact it would appear, if we look around at 21st century situation, that just the opposite is true.

59. The Final Battle!Each of the billions of angels made their decision to love God or not to love God in one instant. Human beings make this same decision in the course of time in all of it’s intricacies and variations and incredible drama both as individuals and collectively in groups, societies, countries, in time and space. We are truly living in the most incredible climatic battle in not just the history of the world, but in the whole history of the universe and of creation! The first great battle in heaven (Rev 12) was between the good angels and the bad angels. Now the battle is between the men and women of good will doing their best to follow the loving will of their Creator, and those who have freely decided to not follow their loving Creator. The good angels are helping and urging us toward God; the fallen angels are doing all they can to lead us away from God for all eternity. We humans are loved so much by God, that WE ARE THE GREAT PRIZE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS GREAT “COSMIC STRUGGLE”! Satan and his hideous fallen angels want to torture us for all eternity. God and his angels want to have a deep, personal communion and union of love with each of us for all eternity! God will always totally respect our free will and will not let anyone else take away this primordial gift of free will. THE CHOICE IS OURS!

The puppets of Satan are seeking to create anew the “TOWER OF BABEL”! A perfect world without God! “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves.” “Come, let us (the Trinity) go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech” (Gen 11:4, 7). On the day of Pentecost, the birth of the Church, the Spirit of unity, worked the miracle of the unity of tongues (Acts 2:1-11).

These proud people have ALL THE MATERIAL POWERS OF THIS WORLD with nuclear bombs, money, banks, stock markets, mass media, petroleum, computers, satellites, microchips, etc. as well as the most intelligent fallen angel to guide them. They have intelligent philosophers, psychologists, historian, etc., who have influenced our society and culture for centuries in order to lead us, in a very powerful way, toward pride and egoism and away from the truth Who is Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit instead is silently forming His army of those who are HUMBLE AND DOCILE to Him so as to lay the foundation for A NEW SPRINGTIME for the Body of Christ, the Church, to come forth after the great period of tribulation. “The blood of martyrs is the life-giving seed of Christianity! - Those who suffered for Christ in the 20th century”; (http://www.pravmir.com/article_153.html).

The Mamma: “YOU ARE ALL UNDER THE AIM OF THE ANTICHRIST, who rebels against the Christians, but you must not have fear. A faith, if it is well rooted, will give you the necessary strength to combat against him, against his iniquitous laws. Be strong, do not be cowards! Look at the ‘then’ – the hope of a better world – and you will see that the sufferings disappear. Only love will tie you together with each other, the Love of God!”. (October 10, 2003; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa03eng.html).

“Yes, My dear daughter, the battle is about to break out, and the weapons that will win are which? THE ROSARY, THE EUCHARIST, HUMILITY, HIDDEN NESS, THE PERSEVERANCE IN THE FAITH... Yes, my child, and beyond all of this there is TOTAL ABANDONMENT OF YOUR ‘EGO’, in order to let God intervene”. (October 17, 2003; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticichiesa03eng.html).

“SHORTLY THERE WILL BE “CHECK MATE” AND GOD WILL BE THE WINNER OF THE MATCH!” (August 22, 2007; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html).

BOTH MILITIAS ARE WORKING FOR UNITY; one will be a forced unity under the cruel tyrant of Satan; the other will be the freely chosen unity under an infinitely loving God, who asks us to follow His crucified Son in our daily lives. It will be the greatest battle in the history of the world! But most do not realize that it is not so much a material or economic battle, but rather a SPIRITUAL BATTLE FOR THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN AND WOMEN. Pope John Paul I once said, "You Only Preserve The Truth That You Defend". How appropriate are these words to us today (http://www.eternalliferadio.org/Guild.html).

Many say that they wished they could have been alive 2000 years ago to see, hear and follow Jesus Christ in person. But I truly feel more privileged today with the most intimate contact and union with Jesus in the Most Blessed Eucharist, as well as the opportunity to be part of the crucifixion of the Body of Christ, His Church, in this great climactic period in salvation history! MANY WILL BE OFFERED THE GREAT GIFT OF BEING ABLE TO IMITATE THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR BY DYING FOR THEIR TESTIMONY TO JESUS CHRIST! “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church…” (Col 1:24).

Some may fall into the trap of despair or hopelessness after the words of Pope John Paul II: “Through your prayers and mine, it is still possible to diminish this trial, but it is NO LONGER POSSIBLE TO AVERT IT.” But the real battle is for eternal souls, not averting a great chastisement or suffering. The more we FIGHT FOR THE TRUTH RIGHT NOW, when the forces of evil seem to have all the cards in their hands, is when we will be able to help to offer the grace of conversion to many souls before they die. Our Blessed Mother sheds tears for everyone of her children who fall into hell for all eternity! I would rather go down fighting for the TRUTH, WHO IS JESUS (Jn 14:6), rather than crying and despairing without doing all I can for love of my God and love of my neighbor! WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET GOING! We are entering the greatest battle in the history of the world and in the history of the Church. But the real battle is not material but spiritual; he powerful tactics of the devil are very subtle and hidden. We must discover the role God has in mind for each of us in this great “cosmic struggle” by preparing well with constant prayer and by mortifying our pride and the lusts of my flesh, and by loving constantly Jesus in each and every neighbor, especially “the least of my brethren”, the most difficult and outcast! In this way, we will render ourselves freely to serve in God’s army, in Mary’s army, in St. Michael’s army, whether it be as a buck private or a corporal or a captain or whatever rank according to God’s perfect plan and strategy. We must say “YES” not just once in our life when we enlist in God’s army, but many times everyday to His slightest little wish and inspiration and command, just as Mary, His Mother, did all of her life. When we do this, we slowly offer our will to God and He can then use us to a much greater degree in this great climactic battle! If we seek to do God’s will in each present moment, which is fundamentally adoring and loving God and loving Jesus in each person before me, God will lead us to that place in our personal divine adventure, God’s perfect design for each of us from all eternity, in this “dour combat with the powers of evil” (CCC 409)! "The present time … ushers in the struggles of the last days" (CCC 672).

Perhaps there might be a tendency to interpret some of the prophecies as if there will be a nuclear holocaust, or comets, or … and then it is all over with in a big bang in short order. But we must remember that God , out of love for us, always respects our free will, whether we choose good or evil, heaven or hell for eternity. So too GOD CONSTRAINS AND FORCES SATAN TO ALSO RESPECT OUR FREE WILL and thus Satan must work through our free wills to bring down and destroy societies, countries and the world, as he seeks to bring as many souls to hell with him as possible to deprive God of their company for all eternity. Thus we are seeing in this incredible ongoing drama this world destruction in all of it’s detail; it is rather fascinating! This also tells us that we must fight to the end as Jesus and Our Lady of Fatima tells us to do.

Jesus lived 33 years. His most intense years were His last 3 years. His most intense week was the Holy Week. His most intense hours were His last 3 hours. Even though Jesus in His humanity desired not to suffer (Mt 26:39), Jesus did the will of His Father for love of us. Throughout His life, Jesus headed toward Jerusalem, toward Calvary, to fulfill His hour (Mt 26:45)! His Body, the Church, has been going through the life of the Body of Christ, with Jesus as the invisible head, in the last 2000 years. CHRIST’S BODY IS ABOUT TO ENTER INTO ITS HOLY WEEK! Each of us can ask ourselves: “Am I ready to be crucified as part of the Body of Christ, the Church? THERE IS NO RESURRECTION WITHOUT THE CRUCIFIXION; THERE IS NO EASTER WITHOUT GOOD FRIDAY!

THE SAINTS OF THE PAST DID NOT JUST SIT THERE WAITING FOR JESUS TO COME AND TO RESCUE THEM OR FOR SOME KIND OF A “RAPTURE”! Everyone in this crucial period of the world will be put to the greatest test ever before. It is easy to say we would die for Jesus; but if we do not prepare spiritually beforehand, do we really believe that we will be able to suffer and die for Christ when we are confronted with real deprivation, torture, and death? Each day one takes small steps toward God or away from God, toward doing ones own will or seeking and doing the will of God. When one takes steps away from God, one becomes weaker and more blind to reality and truth, and vise versa. THE MORE WE PRAY AND OFFER SACRIFICES NOW, the more people will be strong and will have the grace to be able to choose the truth, to choose Christ and not succumb to the greatest pressures ever imposed on each human being to abandon the real Savior of the world, Jesus Christ. More than ever before these pressures are very subtle and deceptive to slowly lure as many souls away from their Creator as possible with beautiful words, slogans, rhetoric, mass media, economic policies, etc. Most people today are choosing to go to hell graciously, as little gods or simply copping out and telling themselves that “God does not exist” (atheists) or “no one knows” (agnostics). During the history of the Church, the greatest saints came out of the greatest periods of persecution and trial for the Church! There were many martyrs in the past and IN THIS PERIOD THERE WILL BE EVEN MORE MARTYRS FOR CHRIST! Jesus died for each one of us individually and personally. What a great honor, privilege and reward to be able to die for Jesus!

On his journey to Rome to be thrown to the wild beasts, Saint Ignatius of Antioch wrote to his faithful and grief-stricken flock (107 AD): “I am truly in earnest about dying for God – if only you yourselves put no obstacles in the way. I must implore you to do me no such untimely kindness; PRAY LEAVE ME TO BE A MEAL FOR THE BEASTS, for it is they who can provide my way to God. I am his wheat, ground fine by the lions’ teeth to be made purest bread for Christ. So intercede with him for me, that by their instrumentality I may be made a sacrifice to God.” (Office of Readings; October 17). It is very interesting how St. Ignatius uses Eucharistic imagery of Christ’s sacrifice in referring to his own personal sacrifice.

St. Rose of Lima (died 1617, Peru) wrote: “The Lord, our Savior, raised his voice and spoke with incomparable majesty. ‘Let all know’, he said, ‘that after sorrow grace follows. … Let them be on their guard against error or deception; this is the only ladder by which paradise is reached; WITHOUT THE CROSS THERE IS NO ROAD TO HEAVEN.’ … If they but knew, surely they would direct their energy with all care and diligence to procuring sufferings and afflictions for themselves. Instead of good fortune all men everywhere would seek out troubles, illness and suffering that they might obtain the inestimable treasure of grace. This is the final profit to be gained from patient endurance. No one would complain about the cross or about hardships coming seemingly by chance upon him, if he realized in what balance they are weighed before being distributed to men.” (Office of Readings; August 23).

“OH, IF ONLY THE SUFFERING SOUL KNEW HOW IT IS LOVED BY GOD, it would die of joy and excess of happiness! Some day, we will know the value of suffering, but then we will no longer be able to suffer. The present moment is ours.” (Diary of St. Faustina (died 1938, Poland), No. 963).

OUR MOTHER MARY HAS COMBAT BOOTS ON; we must put on the armor of her Son Jesus Christ crucified in our lives with continual sacrifices and prayer. “And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars” (Rev 12:1)! LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER! Pray and offer as many sacrifices as possible everyday, with her crucified Son!

“OH MY CHILDREN, DO NOT LOOSE YOURSELVES IN THE DECISIVE BATTLE!.. I urge you .. remain united! That your life might be prayer continually. Offer your day even from the morning, from when you get up, to when you go to sleep. During the night entrust yourselves to the Angels, ask them for their protection. … Be alert, keep watch clinging onto the Eucharist, always purify yourself continually, in such a way that he does not find place for himself, but that he might find the Light of God that dispels him and blinds him! (March 28, 2003; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0304eng.html).

Some would have liked to have lived 2000 years ago with X; but we are now living in, and will live through the rest of, the passion and crucifixion of His body, the Church. Those who are ready, with their lamps burning with ardent love for the Spouse (Mt 25:1-13), will receive the great gift of martyrdom! As our Lady of Fatima told us, right now is the time to pray and offer many sacrifices for the conversion of sinners before they die. This is the greatest period in the history of the world and the Church. THIS IS THE CLIMAX OF THE BATTLE OF BATTLES. THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO WIMP OUT! The spiritually strong must help the spiritually weak NOW! The Gospel and the whole Bible is not just for recognized “Saints”. It is for everyone! The Second Vatican Council reminded us of the “universal call to holiness”!

“Martyrdom is a witness which all Christians must be willing to make.” – Pope John Paul II.

Have you ever read “THE DREAM OF THE TWO COLUMNS? Among the dreams of Saint Don Bosco, one of the more noted ones is the one known with the title of “The Dream of the Two Columns”:

"Try to picture yourselves with me (Don Bosco) on the seashore, or, better still, on an outlying cliff with no other land in sight. The vast expanse of water is covered with a formidable array of ships in battle formation, prows fitted with sharp spear-like beaks capable of breaking through any defense. All are heavily armed with cannons, incendiary bombs, and firearms of all sorts - even books - and are heading toward one stately ship, mightier than them all. As they try to close in, they try to ram it, set it afire, and cripple it as much as possible.

"This stately vessel is shielded by a flotilla escort. Winds and waves are with the enemy. In this midst of this endless sea, two solid columns, a short distance apart, soar high into the sky: one is surmounted by a statue of the Immaculate Virgin at whose feet a large inscription reads: Help of Christians; the other, far loftier and sturdier, supports a [Communion] Host of proportionate size and bears beneath it the inscription Salvation of believers.

"The flagship commander - the Roman Pontiff [the Pope] - seeing the enemy's fury and his auxiliary ships in very grave predicament, summons his captains to a conference (First Vatican Council???). However, as they discuss their strategy, a furious storm breaks out and they must return to their ships. When the storm abates, the Pope again summons his captains (Second Vatican Council???) as the flagship keeps on its course. But the storm rages again. Standing at the helm, the Pope strains every muscle to steer his ship between the two columns from whose summits hang many anchors and strong hooks linked to chains.

"The entire enemy fleet closes in to intercept and sink the flagship at all costs. They bombard it with everything they have: books and pamphlets, incendiary bombs, firearms, cannons. The battle rages ever more furious. Beaked prows ram the flagship again and again, but to no avail, as, unscathed and undaunted, it keeps on its course. At times a formidable ram splinters a gaping hole into its hull, but, immediately, a breeze from the two columns instantly seals the gash.

"Meanwhile, enemy cannons blow up, firearms and beaks fall to pieces, ships crack up and sink to the bottom. In blind fury the enemy takes to hand-to-hand combat, cursing and blaspheming. Suddenly the Pope falls, seriously wounded. He is instantly helped up but, struck down a second time, dies. A shout of victory rises from the enemy and wild rejoicing sweeps their ships. But no sooner is the Pope dead than another takes his place. The captains of the auxiliary ships elected him so quickly that the news of the Pope's death coincides with that of his successor's election. The enemy's self-assurance wanes.

"Breaking through all resistance, the new Pope steers his ship safely between the two columns and moors it to the two columns; first to the one surmounted by the Host, and then to the other, topped by the statue of the Virgin. At this point something unexpected happens. The enemy ships panic and disperse, colliding with and scuttling each other. Some auxiliary ships which had gallantly fought alongside their flagship are the first to tie up at the two columns.

"Many others, which had fearfully kept far away from the fight, stand still, cautiously waiting until the wrecked enemy ships vanish under the waves. Then, they too head for the two columns, tie up at the swinging hooks, and ride safe and tranquil beside their flagship. A great calm now covers the sea." (http://thereedofgod.blogspot.com/2010/04/don-boscos-prophecy-of-two-columns.html).

Unfortunately today, many people both outside the Church and inside the Church want to eliminate the “the flagship commander”.

We must all strive to do as Saint Paul even to our dying breath: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing” (2Tim 4:7-8).

“For we are NOT CONTENDING AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph 6:12).

“In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph and the world will be granted a time of peace.” (Fatima, 1917)

WE WILL NOT BE READY FOR THIS GREAT SPIRITUAL, COSMIC BATTLE IF WE DO NOT DO ALL WE CAN TO PREPARE NOW. Of course the primary preparation is to follow Jesus Christ. But THE QUICKEST AND SMOOTHEST WAY TO FOLLOW JESUS so as to become a great saint is by way of the person who formed Jesus in her womb, and who is also THE SPOUSE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. If we consecrate ourselves to the Mother of Jesus, she will form us also to become like Jesus, in her womb, so as to be born, after death, into eternal bliss with Jesus and all the saints in heaven!

ST. LOUIS DE MONTFORT writes in his little booklet, “The Secret of Mary”:
“God has entrusted Mary with the keeping, the administration, and the distribution of all His graces. There is no GRACE, no gift of God, that does not PASS THROUGH HER CARESSING HANDS. And, as St. Bernardine teaches, she gives what she wills to whom she wills, and in the way she wills, when she wills. Continually, she showers on us her treasures, the grace of her Father, the virtues of her Son, and the gifts of her Spouse, the Holy Spirit.”
“As, in the order of nature, a child must have a father and a mother, so, in the order of grace, a child of the Church must have God for his Father, and MARY FOR HIS MOTHER.”
“And, if anyone should glory in having God for his Father, and not love Mary as his mother, he is not a true child of God. He has deceived himself. He is the spawn of the devil!”
“Since Mary has formed Jesus Christ, the Head of the elect – the Head of the Church, the Mystical Body – she is qualified to FORM THE MEMBERS of that Head, all true Christians.”
“Does a mother form the head without the members, or the members without the head?”
“Whoever wishes to be a member of Jesus Christ must be formed in Mary through the grace of Christ. She possesses this grace in its fullness, so that she may bestow it fully upon her children.”
“As the HOLY SPIRIT HAS ESPOUSED MARY; and in her, by her and from her, has produced the Word Incarnate, and has never repudiated her; so He now continues to produce in her, and by her, in a mysterious but real manner, all the elect.”

“I said that this will happen especially towards the end of the world, and indeed soon, because Almighty God and his holy Mother are to RAISE UP GREAT SAINTS who will surpass in holiness most other saints as much as the cedars of Lebanon tower above little shrubs.” (Treatise On True Devotion To The Blessed Virgin; St. Louis de Montfort; No. 47; http://www.ewtn.com/library/montfort/truedevo.htm).

We know WHO wrote the last chapter of the book! GOD! We are on the winning side! IN THIS PERIOD IT WILL SEEM AS IF THE ENEMY HAS TOTALLY CONQUERED. Should we have fear before men if GOD is for us? Should we fear anything if GOD says, I am with you? If you are filled with Him, then all hell cannot stop you if you are in the Truth who is Jesus Christ Himself (Jn 14:6).

“A GREAT SPRINGTIME for the Church is coming, but we must first go through Calvary” (Pope John Paul II)! Those who persevere in living fully the truth that has been revealed to them by God, even to the point of suffering and dying for Christ, will be resurrected and enjoy UNIMAGINABLE BLISS with Jesus and all the saints and angels for all eternity! “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing” (2Tim 4:7-8).

God the Father: “THE NEW AGE, WAITS FOR THE ‘NEW CREATION’ born from faithful couples in order to bring forth love among the family, and the children are examples for other children that will come to populate the New Earth. Your epoch is that generation which will enter into the New Earth and will have to be the example for others”. (October 31, 2007; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo0607eng.html).

Jesus spent thirty years in His hidden life at Nazareth, three years in His public life. But His most powerful and efficacious moment of redemption were the three hours He spent on the cross in unimaginable agony. We as Christians are called to follow our Leader and Teacher all the way to the end, to whatever destiny He has planned for us in His great love for each of us! The Church has already entered “Holy Week” and will soon arrive to “GOOD FRIDAY” which many Evangelical believe will last about three years (see below)! But we must always remember what follows Good Friday for those who persevere to the end! THE RESURRECTION!

After the “Holy Week” and the “Crucifixion” of the Body of Christ, the Church, Jesus, the Head of this wonderful Body, the "Prince of Peace" (Is 9:6) finally returns "coming in the clouds with great power and glory" (Mt 24:27,30; Mk 13:26; Lk 21:27; 2Thess 2:8).

“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no man could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white roves, with palm branches in their hands… Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and whence have they come?” I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb” ” (Rev 7:9, 13-14)!
“But, as it is written, “What NO EYE HAS SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NOR THE HEART OF MAN CONCEIVED, what God has prepared for those who love Him” “ (1Cor 2:9)!

"MARANA THA!" "COME, LORD JESUS!" (Rev 22:20).

PART III: Appendix – Non Catholic Interpretation of Prophecy
60. An Example of How Dispensationalists Interpret Prophecy
The issue of authority in interpreting Scripture is important because so much of what passes for "Biblical prophecy" today is really PSEUDO-BIBLICAL GUESSWORK, noteworthy for its use of sloppy methods, hazy conjecture, and overt sensationalism. Many "prophecy teachers," especially in the last three decades, have taken passages of Scripture and applied them to current events and people with little or no regard for historical context or original meaning of the texts. This has resulted, for example, in the Antichrist being identified as the Pope, Hitler, Gorbachev, Ronald Reagan, Saddam Hussein, and other, lesser-known people.

One will find in this typical example (below) a certain amount of PROOFTEXTING which is the practice of using decontextualised quotations from a document to establish a proposition rhetorically through an appeal to authority (the Bible). Thus often the document, when read as a whole, may not in fact support the proposition. To many, the explanation of prophecy done in this way will seem overly simplified. But this rather simplified, straight forward type of explanation and literal interpretation of prophetical passages of Sacred Scripture often appeals to many since these passages in Sacred Scripture are often hard to understand. Perhaps one might find some of these interpretations of Sacred Scripture interesting.

Even though there are certainly these above mentioned tendencies in Biblical prophecy, I would like to offer A BRIEF TYPICAL EXAMPLE of how dispensationalists interpret the prophetic passages of the Bible in a basically literal way. Many Protestants accuse the Catholic Church of always interpreting the word Israel in the Bible as the Church and Jerusalem as heaven (“Replacement Theology”). But as we have seen above the Catholic Church asserts that God has always had only one people even though God has certainly not abandoned the Jewish people or the recently established state of Israel.

Even though there are some basic differences between the Catholic and dispensationalist interpretation of prophecy in the Bible as well as the existence of much speculation in Biblical prophecy, I think we can certainly LEARN FROM THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE while always keeping in mind and remaining within the parameters given to us by the Catholic Church. By the same token, in many ways it is EASIER FOR OUR PROTESTANT BROTHERS to offer an explanation for biblical prophecy because they do not have to try to remain within the parameters of the wisdom of the Catholic Church acquired in the last 2000 years guided by the Holy Spirit with each living Pope as the head, the “Rock” (Mt 16:18). Each independent protestant group within the various dominations (tens of thousands!) INTERPRETS SACRED SCRIPTURE IN THEIR OWN WAY. You cannot read the Bible in a vacuum. Where in the Bible does it say, “Only The Bible” (“sola scriptura”)? As mentioned above, the Church approaches Divine Revelation through Sacred Tradition, Sacred Scripture and Magisterial teaching, each of which have equal weight in the Catholic Church, no one of which can subsist without the other two.

In a rather confusing world filled with innumerable opinions, we Catholics should be grateful to Jesus for leaving us the living “ROCK” until the end of time! Jesus knew full well that there would be this confusion even though there is one God, one Jesus Christ and one Bible. This is why he left us the living Rock for those who have the humility to submit to this infallible guide, in faith and morals! “No prophecy of scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation” (2Pt 1:20).

It takes humility to be a Catholic. But Chesterton said he began to think when he became a Catholic! There is a paradox of submitting our wills to God, to the Truth (Jn 14:6) in that we become more free (Jn 8)! All else makes us slaves to ourselves, to the world and to Satan.

In the last five hundred years our Protestant brothers have resolutely TENDED TO OVERREACT to their separation from the Catholic Church and thus they have thrown out the traditions and just about everything else of the Catholic Church in the first 15 centuries of the Church and after; for many Protestant denominations their distinctiveness has become identified with “not being Catholic”. Thus they basically have only the Bible which in itself comes from the early traditions of the Catholic Church. But we as Catholics must not fall into the same human tendency as the Protestants in throwing out everything that is protestant (UR 3; 2nd Vat. C.). The Catholic Church has always sought and received the truth where it is to be found, with prudence; the Holy Spirit blows where He wills. In the last 2000 years the Catholic Church has not tried to destroy other different religions and cultures but rather to lead them toward the fullness of truth and grace found in the Catholic Church, while receiving and respecting the good and the true that can be found in these religions and cultures. Thus let us not do as our Protestant brothers by not overreacting and concluding that all prophetical interpretations of the Bible by the Protestants are in error. It is enough for we Catholics to stay within the parameters that the Church has given to us in this field of study.

Some Catholics might dismiss this dispensationalist interpretation as unimportant. But despite waning popularity in scholarly theological circles, dispensationalism is still a WIDESPREAD BELIEF SYSTEM among Fundamentalists and many Evangelicals, even many of those who are unfamiliar with the term. Thus in order to understand the beliefs of a great many of our non-Catholic Christian brothers, the following example might be helpful.

61. Our "Generation" Shall See All!Jesus indicated that one "generation ... shall see all these things" (Mt 24:34; Mk 13:30; Lk 21:32). Many scholars believe that the "generation" that "shall see all these things" began when Israel took Jerusalem which occurred in June 1967. One finds indications of this theory in the Bible (Lk 21:24; Dan 9:24). A generation in the Bible is considered approximately 50 years, thus perhaps all will happen before 2017. Jesus also said: "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near:..." (Mt 24:32; Mk 13:28; Lk 21:29). In the Old Testament the "fig tree" represented Israel (Jer 24; Joel 1:7; Hos 9:10; Israel=Jacob: 2Kgs 17:34). The state of Israel did not exist for more than 2500 years since the Babylonian captivity. By a miracle of God, against impossible odds, after a general dispersion of the Jews worldwide for more than 2000 years, Israel became again a nation on May 14, 1948 (Amos 9:14-15; Ezek 36:22-24; 37:12; 38:8-9; Jer 3:18; Mt 24:32)! Jews are coming from all over the earth, including from Russia, to Israel (Jer 3:17-18). We are the generation that Christ referred to!

62. The AntichristThe Antichrist will appear (1Jn 2:18; 2Thess 2:8) seven years (Dan 9:27) or three and a half years (Rev 11:3; 12:6) before the second coming of Christ (2Thess 2:1-3). The Antichrist is called "the Beast" because of his character (Rev 13:2-3; 17:8). "Through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many:" (Dan 8:25; see also Dan 11:21,24); in other words, HE WILL BE VERY CUNNING AND SHREWD AND INTELLIGENT AND CHARISMATIC AND A POLITICAL, MILITARY, COMMERCIAL AND RELIGIOUS GENIUS (Dan 8:24-25; 11:21; 2Thess 2:4). He will have "a mouth SPEAKING GREAT THINGS" (Dan 7:8, 20). The Antichrist will become the head of the ten-toed, ten-horned, western federation of nations (Dan 2:40-41; 7:8,20,23-24; Rev 12:3; 13:1; 17:3,7,12,16) that were part of the old Roman Empire (Dan 2:27-36), that is the current EUROPEAN UNION! The Antichrist will exalt himself above God (Dan 11:36; 2Thess 2:4).

63. The Seven World EmpiresThis passage of Daniel (Dan 2:27-36) reveals the last five of the seven world powers (Rev 17:10) in the history of the world. The seven empires (Rev 17:10) were (1) Assyria, (2) Egypt, (3) Babylon (Dan 1:1), (4) Medo-Persia (Dan 5:28), (5) Greece (Dan 8:20-21), (6) Rome (Dan 9:26; Rom 1:7), and (future) (7) the revived Roman Empire (the European Union: Dan 2:42-43). The prophet Daniel predicted that the revived Roman Empire would become 10 nations (Dan 7:7, 20: Greece the 10th member, 1981) and then to 13 nations (Dan 7:8, 24: Austria 1995), and finally "shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces" (Dan 7:23; Rev 13:7). The head of gold of this "great image" (Dan 2:32-33) represents Babylon (Dan 2:38), the chest and arms of silver signifies the Medes and Persians who overtake Babylon, the stomach and thighs of brass typify Alexander the Great and Greece (Dan 2:39). The second to the last world empire represented by the two "legs of iron" (Dan 2:33,40) of this "great image" is the old Roman Empire with two capitals at Rome and Constantinople. It is interesting that the ten toes of iron never destroyed the legs of iron - the Roman Empire! Why? Because Rome fell through internal corruption. The final world power is a union of ten western nations represented by the ten toes of the great image (Dan 2:33,41-43). The "iron" tells us these nations were part of the old Roman Empire (Europe), whereas the "clay" speaks of a deterioration as the empire weakened over the centuries. Thus, the final world power will not be communism but a confederation of ten western nations under the first Beast, the Antichrist. The prophet Daniel indicates that after a ten-nation confederation is formed another leader will appear, remove three nations, replace them, and rule as the Antichrist in the revived Roman Empire (European Union) (Dan 7:7,8,20,24-25; see also: Rev 12:3; 13:1; 17:3,7,12,16; 1Jn 2:18; Dan 9:26) until the King of kings returns to earth and destroys his evil empire (Rev 19:11-21; Dan 2:44).

64. The Two BeastsIn the book of Revelation one finds descriptions of two beasts in particular. THE FIRST BEAST (Rev 13:1-10) is called the Antichrist; the second Beast (Rev 13:11-18) is called the false Prophet. THE SECOND BEAST will be a world religious leader, impersonating Christ (“like a lamb”; Rev 13:11), and will seek to induce all to "worship the image" of the first Beast (which will be able to speak! (Rev 13:15)), the Antichrist, performing "miracles" (Rev 19:20; 13:13; 2Thess 2:9) and "signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect" (Mt 24:24; Mk 13:22; Rev 13:8)! This false Prophet will lead many away (Rev 13:4) from Christ, the only true Savior of the world. The devil normally comes disguised as an Angel in order to lead astray as many as possible!

65. The Twenty-One JudgmentsIn the book of Revelation, there are twenty-one judgments from God: seven seals, seven trumpet blasts, and seven vials (Rev 6-18; Rom 1:18). Many of these judgments are very similar to those that God inflicted upon the Egyptians by the hand of Moses (Ex 7-12). The first seal refers to the arrival of the Antichrist, "the Beast" (Rev 6:2), who comes on a white horse, to imitate Christ's second coming (Rev 19:11); he comes also with a bow without arrows and is given a crown, which indicates that he will not be a military leader but a political leader as a king (Dan 2:40-41; 7:23-24; Rev 13:1). The second seal depicting a rider on a red horse, who takes "peace from the earth ... and there was given unto him a great sword" (Rev 6:3-4), is interpreted by many as being a MAJOR WAR WITH RUSSIA united with the Arabs. This war with Russia is also described in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 with "Magog", "Mesheck", "Tubal" and "Rosh" as the modern day Russia, and "Gog" as the head of Russia. "And you shall come up from your place of the north parts" (Ezek 38:15); Moscow is exactly north of Israel. The third seal (Rev 6:5-6) gives a picture of mass starvation after the nuclear war (nuclear bomb: 2Pet 3:10-12; Joel 2:3,30; Mal 4:1; Ezek 20:47; Is 66:15-16; 24:6; Ps 97:3; Rev 9:17-18; 8:7; 6:12-14; neutron bomb: Zech 14:12); silver or gold will not be worth anything either (Ezek 7:19). The fourth seal tells of THE DESTRUCTION OF ONE FOURTH OF MANKIND. Perhaps the global warming can be attributed to "the fourth angel [that] poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat..." (Rev 16:8-9).

“The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed” (Rev 8:8-9). “The second angel poured his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a dead man, and every living thing died that was in the sea” (Rev 16:3).
“Solar storms to erupt soon. What will be the impact on Earth? - People of the 21st century rely on high-tech systems for the basics of daily life. But smart power grids, GPS navigation, air travel, financial services and emergency radio communications can all be knocked out by intense solar activity. … NASA and NOAA work together to manage a fleet of satellites that monitor the sun and help to predict its changes.” (June 14, 2010; http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2010/0609/Solar-storms-to-erupt-soon.-What-will-be-the-impact-on-Earth).

66. Signs of the TimesIt is interesting to note the great increase in wars, famines, pestilences (AIDS produced by the green monkeys and sexual promiscuity, SARS, Mad Cow Disease, Malaria, West Nile Fever, Bird Flu, Avion flu produced by fowls, Swine flu, Anthrax on our lettuce, salmonella poison from hamburger, salmonella - peanut butter, Lyme Disease, etc.), and earthquakes with respect to the norm of centuries past. Jesus said: "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." (Mt 24:7; Lk 21:11; Mk 13:8; Rev 6:8); "and knowledge shall be increased" (Dan 12:4). There shall be perilous times and terror in the last days (2Tim 3:1; Mt 24:37; Gen 6:11); "the sea and the waves roaring" (i.e., great increase in the frequency of hurricanes; and tsunami or seaquakes: Lk 21:25-26,36). There shall be "wars and rumors of war" and ethnic violence (Mt 24:6-7; Mk 13:7-8) as we see today!

“Why So Many Earthquakes?” (http://bigthink.com/ideas/19633). God is trying to tell us something! But most are not praying and not following the 10 commandments and thus do not awaken to these signs sent from God to give us a last chance to prepare for the greatest period of tribulation in the history of the world. Many even try to help us explain the unexplainable so as to distract us from God and Biblical prophecy. “Are There More Big Earthquakes Than There Used To Be? How human activity affects the tectonic plates.” (http://www.slate.com/id/2241540/)

“Earthquakes And The End Times: A Geological And Biblical Perspective” - “Earthquakes continue to increase in frequency and intensity, just as the Bible predicts for the last days before the return of Christ. History shows that the number of killer quakes remained fairly constant until the 1950s - averaging between two to four per decade. In the 1950s, there were nine. In the 1960s, there were 13. In the 1970s, there were 51. In the 1980s, there were 86. From 1990 through 1996, there have been more than 150. (Hal Lindsey) (http://ldolphin.org/quakes2.html).

“Earthquakes on the Increase? Or Warning of Judgment to come?” - “Since A.D. 1900, the growth in major earthquakes has been relentless. From 1900 to 1949 it averaged three major quakes per decade. From 1949 the increase became awesome with 9 killer quakes in the 1950s; 13 in the 1960s; 56 in the 1970s and an amazing 74 major quakes in the 1980s. Finally, in the 1990s, at the present rate, we will experience 125 major killer quakes in this decade.” (Grant R. Jeffrey) (http://www.biblearchaeology.org/post/2010/04/16/Earthquakes-on-the-Increase-Or-Warning-of-Judgment-to-come.aspx).

Devastated by now by so much exploitation, it can do nothing else but react to your indiscriminate work. God created it so that man might be able to enjoy of it the possession with equilibrium and good sense, but now she responds with the Law imposed by God and neglected by man.” (June 8, 2008; http://www.margheritadigesu.it/pagine/avvprofeticimondo08eng.html).

67. The Two “Babylon”s of the Book of RevelationIn the book of Revelation one finds in several places the word "Babylon". Most bible scholars believe that the "Babylon" found in chapters 14 (e.g., verse 8) and 17 refers to a religious system (One World Church!) whereas the "Babylon" in chapters 16 (e.g., verse 19) and 18 is political. The "woman" (Rev 17:3, etc) or whore (Rev 17:1,5, etc.) refers to the "One World Church" without Jesus Christ as the head. The word "fornication" (Rev 14:8; 17:2,4), spiritually speaking, has to do with idolatry, including all its evil connotations and associations. The woman, in chapter 17 of the book of Revelation, reigns from Rome (Rev 17:9) which shows that the political and religious power brokers exist together simultaneously (Rev 17:18). Since the world church forms at the time when ten western nations unite - and both the European Economic Community and World Council of Churches began unity proceedings in 1948 - Christ's coming must be near!

Chapter 18 of the book of Revelation describes the destruction of political Babylon. Religious Babylon was called "mystery Babylon," (Rev 17:5,7) but commercial Babylon is referred to as "Babylon the great" (Rev 18:2). Religious Babylon was presented as a woman or a mother, while commercial Babylon is portrayed as a city - a "great" city, a "mighty" city, and eventually a "burning" city (Rev 18:9). Religious Babylon was situated on seven hills (Rome: Rev 17:9), whereas political Babylon is visible from the sea (Rev 17:17-18,21). Religious Babylon will be destroyed by the kings of the earth (Rev 17:16), but political Babylon will be destroyed by horrendous judgments from the hand of God (Rev 18:8). When religious Babylon is destroyed, the kings will rejoice (Rev 17:16). When political and economic Babylon is demolished, however, the kings and merchants of the earth lament and weep for her (Rev 18:9,15). The believers of the Tribulation hour are told to "come out of her" [and partake not] of her [evil deeds]" (Rev 18:4; Jms 5:1-6).

68. The Fall of "Babylon"Capitalism will be the ruling power as the ten nations bleed the world's inhabitants of their possessions; these are the rich who starve the poor (Rev 18:6-7). But in one hour the "great city Babylon" will fall (Rev 18:8-10,17-19) forever (Rev 19:2-3). Perhaps this fall refers to stock market crashes world wide (planned and coordinated?); the question is when this crash will occur, before or after the war with Russia and the Arabs. In any case, the Antichrist and his false Prophet (or at least their predecessors) will most likely be in their respective world positions before the crash occurs so as to offer to the world their solution already prepared.

69. The Wounding of the BeastIt seems that the wounding of the Beast mentioned three times in the book of Revelation, chapter 13 verses 3, 12, and 14, refers to the assassination of the Antichrist midway through the Tribulation hour of seven years. Such an event would give the great counterfeiter, Satan, the opportunity to perform a resurrection. This would prove invaluable to the prestige of the Antichrist, since the deity of the Lord Jesus was affirmed by His resurrection 2000 years before (Mt 12:39-40). The Antichrist will proclaim himself God and will even sit in the temple in Jerusalem (rebuilt: Dan 9:25; God's city: Mt 5:35) during the Tribulation (2Thess 2:4; Mt 24:15; Dan 11:31). Thus, a counterfeit resurrection would assure the world that he is all he claims to be. When this happens "all the world [wonders] after the Beast" (Rev 13:3-4). At this point the false prophet (the second beast) will try to entice all to deny Jesus Christ and to adore the image of the resurrected Antichrist (the first beast) in order to receive his mark, 666 (Rev 13:11-18).

70. The “Mark of the Beast”, 666Many scholars believe that each person on the face of the earth will probably have a few months to update the microchip he received after the world wide economic crash - with the prefix 666. Those who do not adore the image of the Antichrist and do not deny Christ (or any other God one believes in) will not receive the prefix 666 in their microchip and thus will not be able to buy or sell anything; the police of the Antichrist will seek to kill all those who refuse to take his mark, 666 (Rev 20:4).

71. Moral DecayIn the latter days there shall be much moral decay (2Tim 3:1-5; Mt 24:37). Jesus told us: "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with dissipation, and drunkenness, and the cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth" (Lk 21:34-35). Saints Peter and Paul wrote very strongly against all kinds of sin including the eternal consequence of sin (1Pet 4:1-8; Gal 5:19-21; 1Cor 6:9-10). It is also very important to prepare for our eternal Judge and to forgive all of our enemies and offenders as we pray in the "Our Father" (Mt 5:43-48; 6:9-15; 18:21-35; Mk 11:25; Lk 6:37; 11:2-4; 17:4; 23:34; Col 3:13' Heb 12:3). The mercy of God it is not automatic; we will be forgiven our sins only "IF" we confess our sins (1Jn 1:8-9; Lev 26:40-42; Lk 15:21-22; Jms 5:16).

72. Sins During the Tribulation PeriodThere shall also be in the last days many who deny Christ (2Pet 2:1-2; 2Thess 2:3; 1Tim 4:1-2). "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God" (Ps 9:17; Lk 21:25). Verses 20 e 21 of chapter 9 of the book of Revelation present five major sins which permeate the Tribulation scene - and for which men would rather die that switch: (1) occultism (Lev 19:31; 20:6; Deut 18:10-12; Ex 20:4-5; Ps 115:4-8; Rev 9:20), (2) murder (Mt 24:37; Gen 6:11), (3) drug abuse (Rev 18:23; 21:8; 22:15), (4) fornication (sexual orgies) (Rev 9:21; Mt 24:12; Gal 5:19; 2Pet 2:14), and (5) stealing (Rev 9:21). "... In the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;" (1Tim 4:1; Rev 9:20-21).

73. OccultismDuring the Tribulation hour, the world - steeped in occultism and idolatry - progresses to the worship of the image of the Beast, or Antichrist, who proclaims himself as God (2Thess 2:4). This image, made in his likeness (Rev 13:14-15), is undoubtedly the "abomination of desolation" spoken of in Matthew 24:15, which is placed in the Temple in Jerusalem and which brings great heartache to the Jews of that day. One can see that the world's present surge of occultism is paving the way for the coming of the greatest religious imposter in history.

74. The Third World WarWhen the Antichrist takes control over the nations via a world government, "power [is] given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations" (Rev 13:7). Such a one-world government is almost upon us. Consider for a moment the global organizations which have become existent in our day. The Antichrist will be elected head of the European Union after making, in a spectacular way, a peace contract in the Middle East for seven years (Dan 9:27; in this verse the Greek word "heptad" means "seven years"); but the peace is false (Jer 6:14; 8:11; Is 28:15,18). Most likely sometime after this peace contract will occur, very suddenly (1Thess 5:3), while Israel is at rest, "without walls" (Ezek 38:11; i.e., due to the peace contract of the Antichrist), the third world war led by Russia and the Muslims and Arabs (Ezek 38-39 (Magog=Russia; Ezek 38:5 Persia=Iraq and Iran, etc. (See Gen 10); Ps 83:2-8; Rev 6:3-4). Fire (nuclear) will go before the Russian army (Ps 97:3; Is 66:15; Zeph 1:18; Joel 2:3). We also find in Ezekiel a detailed description of burial procedures after a nuclear war (Ezek 39:11-16). Although Russia is miraculously defeated (Ezek 39:1-2; "they kill each other in confusion": Ezek 38:21; victory of Israel to glorify God: Ezek 38:21; 39:21-22; will the USA be devastated?: Ezek 39:6), there will be mass starvation after the war.

75. Damascus Destroyed?The prophet Isaiah tells us also that the city of Damascus will be totally destroyed (Is 17:1; a prophecy not yet fulfilled!); this will probably happen before Russia marches. Israel will most likely not let Syria or Iran develop and possess weapons of mass destruction. This destruction of Damascus, probably by Israel, might offer the occasion for the Antichrist to come to power in Europe after making a seven-year peace contract in the Middle East. The whole scenario revolves around the relentless hatred between Israel and the Arabs (Muslims) (Ezek 35:5-6; 38:7-9; Ps 83:1-8 (Edom=Arabs); Amos 1:11). This 4000-year enmity of the descendents of Ishmael (Gen 25:12-18) (Isaac's stepbrother) and Esau (Gen 27:38-39) (Jacob's brother), the Arabs, toward Israel will eventually draw the whole world into the conflict. God loves all people but in particular He loves the Church (i.e., those who believe and follow Jesus) and the Jews (Deut 7:7-8; Zach 2:8; Jer 3:14; His elect: Is 42:1; 45:4; 65:9,22). Although Jesus has already come, the love of God for the Jews has never been abrogated (Lk 1:32-33; Mt 5:35; Ps 2:6; Zach 2:10; 14:4; Is 59:20). Thus Satan still hates the Jews (1Cr 21:1) who gave to the world the Savior.

76. "The Abomination of Desolation"At about half way through the seven-year period of the great tribulation, the Antichrist will commit "the abomination of desolation" (2Thess 2:4; Mt 24:15; Mk 13:14; Dan 9:27; 11:31; 12:11) in which he will exalt himself above all, including God (Dan 11:36; 2Thess 2:4). At that point there will be no more public sacrifices and offerings (Dan 9:27), or no more sacrifice in the rebuilt temple of Jerusalem as well. The Antichrist will be given power to continue "forty and two months" (Rev 13:5) which corresponds to the last half of his seven-year reign. Sometime after this abomination the surviving sixth of the army of Russia, driven back to Siberia (Ezek 39:1-2; Joel 2:3,20), will join with the "kings of the east" (China etc.; Rev 16:12; Dan 11:44) to head toward the middle east, across a dry Euphrates river (Rev 16:12), to attack Israel with an army of at least 200,000,000 soldiers killing one third of mankind (Rev 9:15-16,18). This army advances with the latest and best of equipment (Nahum 2:3-4). One would think that after experiencing such devastation, mankind would begin considering eternity. Not so! (Rev 9:20-21; 16:9,11,21). According to Ezekiel 39:8-16, seven months will be required to bury the dead, and the armaments of war will be burned for seven years afterward! Throughout this great Tribulation period Jesus will be near to those who believe and love Him: "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near." (Lk 21:28,15).

During the tribulation period there will appear TWO WITNESSES: "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophecy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth" (Rev 11:3-12; Mal 3:1; 4:5). Many biblical scholars believe that these two witnesses are Elias and Enoch of the Old Testament.

77. ArmageddonIn the end all nations will come up against Israel headed by the Antichrist (Ps 83:4; Zech 14:2) and against the Lord (Rev 17:14; Ps 2:2). Jerusalem will be "a cup of trembling" ... and "a burdensome stone for all people"... (Zech 12:2-3); Jerusalem will be divided (Rev 16:19; Joel 3:2).

At a certain point, after this great war, Jesus, the "Prince of Peace" (Is 9:6) finally returns "coming in the clouds with great power and glory" (Mt 24:27,30; Mk 13:26; Lk 21:27; 2Thess 2:8). Jesus will split the Mount of Olives with a great earthquake (Zech 14:4; Rev 16:18; Hag 2:6-7). With all His angels and saints Jesus will defeat the Antichrist and all of his followers (Armageddon: Rev 16:16; 19:11-21; Dan 2:44-45). At this point Christ will then sets up His kingdom here on earth for a thousand years (Rev 20:4) in which he will firmly rule (Is 2:3; "rod of iron": Rev 19:15; 2:27; 12:5). Satan will be bound a thousand years (Rev 20:2-3). And finally the people of the earth "shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Is 2:4; Micah 4:3)! And the world will continue without end (Is 45:17; Ef 3:21; Eccl 1:4; Ps 104:5)!

78. The RaptureJust about all dispensationalists today believe that there are many indications in the Bible that before the great Tribulation period begins the believers in Christ, the Church, will be "raptured" or taken to heaven (Rev 4:1; 1Thess 4:16-18; 1Cor 15:51-54). The word "Church" is found sixteen times in the first three chapters of the Apocalypse, but is not found in chapters 6 through 18, the Tribulation period (see also: Jer 30:7 and Dan 12:1). Israel, however, is seen in the midst of the holocaust (Rev 12:1-13); the "144,000" is believed to be Jewish converts (Rev 7:4-8) and other Gentile converts (Rev 7:9). In the Bible we find that God has two elect groups upon the earth - the Church and Israel. This oath of God that chooses Israel as an elect group of people (Gen 12:2-3; Deut 7:7-8) has never been abrogated (Rom 11:26-29). Thus the elect and martyrs during the Tribulation period refer to Jewish (Mt 24:22; Is 42:1; 45:4; 65:9,22) and non Jewish converts after the Rapture. But the removal of the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit (2Thess 2:6-7) (the Church), via the Rapture, will cause all hell to break loose upon earth. The Rapture theory could thus explain the domination of the world by the Antichrist and the false Prophet in a rather short time, i.e., less than seven years.
