Apoc. Chap. IX V1-2 Heresies and Religious Wars Leading To The Reign of antichrist

Hi Mary Anne, very fine article here and it does illustrate the long term corruption of the Church from its infancy but its acceleration toward destruction since the Reformation and now with Bergoglio and NWO inserted this adds up to me that antichrist isn’t too far off now. Here are some thoughts I had about this matter in general in a blog I wrote that certainly speak to this overall decline and derailment of God’s plan by the diabolical and so many earthly minions.
The Reformation to me was nothing more than a “mass rebellion” against God’s Holy plan for His Church on earth, and Peter established the Church the way Jesus told him to do it, he Peter being the cornerstone; as they continued for centuries with some interfering forces always afoot that came from the Devil to alter God’s plan; the Reformation movement was the capstone to me of the whole transgressed effort. As I see it, the alterations are still proceeding in earnest today to continue scattering the flock or God’s children from the truth. Jim Jones is a good case in point that I mentioned as to why rebellion has only led to more sin and destruction! In that case Jones’s People’s Temple all were led so far astray that it resulted in the mass death of 909 Christians by murder and suicide!
Looking all the way back to the beginning of the Church major change was in order by Christ’s own instruction on earth bringing his New and Everlasting Covenant, doing away with the Old Ways, but, that of course had conflict immediately. The temple was the Synagogue where the Jewish Pharisees who conspired against Jesus were using the Old Testament and the old ways were to be replaced with the New Church of Christ after his death and resurrection, and eating His Body and Blood are required and proper Sacraments which He instructed Peter the cornerstone of the New and Everlasting Church Covenant to build for His Church family of believers! Some immediately did what Christ instructed much of it having to be hidden from the Pharisees and the Roman Emperor. So division has existed for the entire time since Christ’s crucifixion and it still does now! This only proves that point! Rebellion is of the Devil and that is pure truth! If we don’t do the right thing in these serious basic precepts of the Church then we will be in transgression of God Almighty for not accepting the Body and Blood of Christ on the cross and in essence blaspheming God! We can be sure that when Jesus told Peter to build His church there was no Bible or many issues or interpretations of the Scriptures for the mostly illiterate masses of that period of history to read, “the word” as an article points out called “Reformation Christians” who were giving great credence to the writings and teachings of Diana Severance a current reformist who made enormous effort to paint Anne Askew of the old reformation period as one of the greatest nonconforming human beings to have ever walked the earth and indeed painted her as being from what I was hearing one of God’s most anointed, and a women for the ages for all women to emulate. But with these people the big thing; being that only the Reformation meant anything, which I say all of this rebellion comes from the Devil. But this instead being of most importance that there was the “Consecrated Body and Blood of Christ” the Holy Eucharist that the Apostles were to do in remembrance and practice by faith that they are eating the Body and Blood of Christ, which is a first and foremost Holy Sacrament without which you miss the whole point of having God’s Church on earth.
When I think about how much more stable and decent the world appeared to be compared to now not many decades ago, and how it’s like a ship sinking, and every man and woman for themselves; it makes for a very clear picture that we are in latter times.
Thank you for this and God bless you and yours.

In Defence of the Great Father Z

Oh I see so according to the Heretic’s style of NWO Catholicism Father Z is not a politically correct Exorcist! What in the world do atheists and fake Catholics know about this subject to the degree that an expert like father Z does! He is a blessed brave soldier fighting in the Spiritual Warfare that has amped up exponentially in recent years infecting all walks of life and leaving ruin and despair in its path! We need MORE priests and soldiers for Christ on earth not less; but obviously the Devil’s minions or cohorts in the Church now desire less so they can bring more evil into the Church and indeed people; to serve Satan and the coming NWO antichrist! It seems like the Devil got his due with the US election and a blaspheming evil man who continually claims to be a Catholic and isn’t; is now the Puppet POTUS bringing voluminous destructive change to the government and Nation under God. Here we see that frauds like Bergoglio are appeasing and satisfying Satan’s getting his due in the Church to make it a blaspheming false church that is in total opposition to what Jesus told St. Apostle Peter to build. If these aren’t signs of the times that indicate we’re on the precipice then what would it take to open eyes to the Truth; outside of Jesus making His return!

Post publishing amendment: All the following quotations thanks to: Posted on by Catholicism Pure & Simple

Thank you for these excellent articles and they connect perfectly! I hadn’t read the previous blog; “Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò on the Feast of The Presentation of the Lord,” until just now and was joyous that your work at CP&S, in unison with the Holy Spirit which is guiding and exposing the Truth for the faithful and all to see plainly!  I have to say that my Statement of perspective regarding what this blog article is saying dovetails in my mind precisely with what Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is saying about the politically correct NWO manipulation taking place and damaging the original intent and purpose of the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ! I get teary eyed seeing these connections in these writings and their being the same as my own thoughts and observations! I quote the following from this previous article here for convenience.

“The Letter of the Congregation is an example of the “politically correct” with which the hierarchs of Santa Marta wink indecorously at gender equality, which is so dear to today’s aligned thought (we are on the wave of the new version of the Orate fratres of the reformed rite, of lectresses and acolytesses) and at all the markers of the new language: the document strains itself to make references to the pandemic, to the “universal aspiration to fraternity,” to the “new dream of fraternity and social friendship,” and also to the invitation to religious to be “architects of universal brotherhood, custodians of our common home,” “brothers and sisters of all, regardless of faith” [sic], culminating in the cry of impiety of the global religion of Fratelli Tutti: “Let us dream, then, as a single human family, as fellow travelers sharing the same flesh, as children of the same earth which is our common home, each of us bringing the richness of his or her beliefs and convictions, each of us with his or her own voice, brothers and sisters all!”

“What then is the practical proposal that the Congregation offers to those who are consecrated? How does it intend to help the Religious Orders to each be faithful to their own charism, to the Holy Rule, to the Constitutions of their Founder Saints? Here are the Prefect’s lofty words: “It is a question, then, of creating ways of accompanying, transforming, and creating; of developing projects to promote a culture of encounter and dialogue between different peoples and generations; of starting with one’s own vocational community and then reaching to every corner of the earth and to every creature, because never as during this pandemic have we experienced how everything is linked, everything is related, everything is connected” (here). The World Economic Forum, the promoter of the Great Reset, could not have expressed it better! What does it matter if Saint Teresa of Avila, Saint Dominic, Saint Clare, Saint Francis de Sales and all the Founder Saints are left scandalized by the systematic demolition of their Orders, when the words of the Holy See enjoy the benign applause of the globalist elite, the infamous sect, and the enemies of Christ! What else does “creating ways of accompanying, transforming, and creating” mean, if not an invitation to deny fidelity to the original charism, re-educating those who resist and constraining the recalcitrant by force? What is this “developing projects to promote a culture of encounter and dialogue” if not the application of religious indifferentism and conciliar ecumenism?”

“We have understood, in these times of crisis, that whoever is constituted in authority is now disconnected from those over whom he holds command. The so-called pandemic has shown that those who govern are obedient to the orders of supranational powers, while citizens are deprived of their rights, and any form of dissent is censored or psychiatrized, according to a recent felicitous expression. The same thing happens in the Church: the highest levels of the Hierarchy obey the same powers and deprive the faithful of their rights, censoring those who do not intend to renounce their faith and do not accept seeing the Church being demolished by its Ministers. João Braz de Aviz is perfectly aligned with “Jorge Mario Bergoglio”, and both of them zealously support the establishment of the “New World Order.”

“This is the painful reality with which we must daily confront ourselves, and for which we must pray, fast, and do penance, imploring the intervention of God and the Most Holy Virgin to help us. In this supernatural battle, the contribution of religious men and women is fundamental: this is why it is more necessary than ever that consecrated souls rediscover the sacrificial dimension of their vocation, offering themselves in holocaust as expiatory victims. This, after all, is the heart of the religious vocation and of being Christian itself: becoming like Christ and following Him on the Cross, so as to sit at His right hand in blessed eternity.”

Again, thank you so very much for doing this great work in serving our Lord Jesus Christ and Father in heaven, to repel the enemies of the Church and indeed Jesus Christ who are determined to destroy the Church, but before that; to provide it as a stage for the antichrist and serving the NWO doctrines of anti-faith and all manner of falsehood.

Dear Lord, help us in this spiritual war as the demons are surrounding us to bring utter ruin to your Church and family!  I ask this in the blessed and holy name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Brother in Christ Jesus,

COMMENT It is now common knowledge: the famous and immensely popular traditional American priest, Fr John Zuhlsdorf (better known as Father Z) has been reprimanded, and then ousted from his diocese, by his bishop, Bp. Hying, for performing exorcisms for protection from “the Wuhan virus” and against “demonic influence” in the recent American elections. Anything wrong with that? Exorcisms from the Devil have been around for a very very long time in the Church. Yes, naturally, according to the modernists of the New World Order catholic-lite factions!

The reaction to the news of Father Z’s treatment has been tremendous on the Catholic blogosphere. The majority of Catholics – so many thousands of us who have benefited hugely both spiritually and practically from the wisdom and charisma of this faithful Catholic priest – are deeply saddened by the injustice dealt out to him. On the other hand, his many enemies among…

Mary’s Solitude During the Public Life of Jesus

“Thanks and Reverence to the Blessed Mother Mary”
Catholics believe that worship is due to God alone. Catholics do, however, venerate Mary. In other words, we honor our Blessed Mother with great reverence and devotion because she is the Mother of God. Mary is the model of perfect love and obedience to Christ. God preserved Mary from sin, and she conceived our Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit, bringing Christ into our world. Catholics can’t help but honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is full of grace, the Mother of God and our Mother, for her “yes” to God that made the Incarnation possible. And without the Incarnation, we would not have salvation. Mary is the most beautiful model of total submission to the will of God. Catholics do not view Mary as equal to Christ, but rather venerate Mary because of her relationship to Christ. The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains, “Mary’s role in the Church is inseparable from her union with Christ and flows directly from it” (CCC 964).

As Catholics, we pray that we can respond to God’s call to holiness for our lives in the way that Mary did. Mother Theresa prayed to emulate Mary’s devotion to Christ:
“Mary, Mother of Jesus, give me your heart so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate, 
so full of love and humility that I may be able to receive Jesus in the Bread of Life, 
love Him as You loved Him, and serve Him as You served Him….”

God chose Mary to be the “Blessed Virgin” in order to manifest “His Plan and Family” as well as the Church He created; but Mary facilitated this will of God’s by being the only human fully obedient flesh; that contained Holiness! Jesus Christ could only come here to save us by this one human being Mary; the Mother of Jesus Christ who is our Savior, that part of the Blessed Holy Trinity that comprises our Creator; our Father who is in heaven!

I think of Mother Mary’s trial on this fallen earth or world as a struggle with that very thing the Holy Scriptures tell us about the ways of the world and the corrupted nature how it seeks to ruin and tear apart the good that does exist among the vile and uncharitable viciousness that stalks or shadows our lives while we are here.

To relinquish the things of this world or offer up our own lives as a sacrifice is so difficult a thing to do for anyone, but Mary did just that and in spades. Her short lived joys of having a wonderful good and noble hard working man as her husband; then together they shared in the monumental joy and honor to parent the “Son of God Almighty” actually being those most special parents on earth that nurtured and watched over as those earthly parents, the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind, as He grew up to fulfill God’s prophecy becoming the Lamb of God; in the flesh the Man Jesus who at the same time was the Christ, who would carry not only His most special cross, the cross of Salvation, but all crosses for human sins that all of us commit being fallen from God’s grace and absolute Holy perfection.

Mary’s longing and pain is beyond my personal perception not only because I’m a man not a mother but also because she is the Blessed Mother chosen by God to be the vessel of the immaculate conception being so closely connected to God the Father and the Son, her Son also by physical fact but also by spiritual Divine Intention of God the Creator making in her a bond of unimaginable power and Holiness that she would have to endure on her own accompanied by the Holy Spirit to the finish; and then thereafter until her own death, all the while feeling the majesty of the King having been part of her, but, then yanked away by this corrupted world and all of its sin and death to fulfill “the greatest of all missions” ever conducted on earth! But, she had been so blessed with the greatest humility and completely unselfish humanness, setting an example for all mothers and indeed parents to model themselves after.

The sorrow she endured knowing and seeing the most high, God incarnate and only perfect human, taking on the suffering due to all human sin and from all humans who deserve it; is unimaginable to me, but I can see how her sorrow was a sorrow of “all sorrows” that only a mother can come close to appreciating the crushing loss she felt; as she was really only a human being and woman, though specially blessed; at that point doing God’s will on earth and faithfully following His requirements each day to the end of her own road here, that she had to bear witness to this unimaginable magnitude of suffering that came upon Jesus who was flesh of her flesh, and whose heart was entwined completely with hers, in this most unique bond of love and enduring commitment to God the Father and His Son; what a Mother! I tear now, thinking of her and Jesus; how she is the only soul and human ever; to have this miraculous bond with the Creator. This is why I know she was given the honor and reverence that she alone deserves and it does make sense that the all-knowing and loving merciful God would do this; for her sacrifice and faithful devotion to her Son and the Father who are both in heaven in their glory; giving Mary the honor, great respect and appreciation she earned, being so humble and thankful for her mission and suffering!

Now she is given the special place of being our Holy Mother of the Church of Christ’s family, whose devotion to that living Church and we its members deserve as children of God! And Mary knows like no other what her need was like as she had and lived through it from the time of the immaculate conception and forward only fulfilling God’s will; now doing the Father’s will as always we have Mother Mary’s intercession in behalf of her Son Jesus, pleading our cases as the greatest advocate anyone could have who can help the original mission of the New and Everlasting Covenant, to save souls that the Father and Son by their love and reverence for her, allow her to come to our aid to encourage us on our personal journeys; so as not to be alone suffering as she had to, but, to always have that motherly Church presence connected to the heavenly kingdom in that most special way that only she can, and is always being in the ready to act in our best interests as an intercessor, having only our best interest in heart; between we who are fallen from grace and that most Holy Heavenly Family of the Christ Church, that Blessed Trinity; by the will of the Father and through the Son Jesus Christ our Lord, Savior and Redeemer. Mary pleads for our safe passage from this world to heaven.

First John 2:15-16 says, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.”

“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23,

Apostle Paul reminded us, “whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things.” Philippians 3:7-8

“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:40

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Galatians 1:10 says, “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Clearly from this verse, we cannot consistently please both God and the world. The desire for popularity and even fame or fortune is rooted in our old sinful nature.

When we give in to it, we are living “according to the flesh” (Romans 8:5, 12). Blessed Mother Mary did not do this at all. She denied self!

We are to “seek first” God’s kingdom and righteousness (Matthew 6:33).
(Matthew 6:24) “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Or material Life!

Again; God chose Mary to be the “Blessed Virgin” in order to manifest “His Plan and Family” as well as the Church He created; but Mary facilitated this will of God’s by being the “only human fully obedient flesh; that contained Holiness!” Jesus Christ could only come here to save us by this one human being Mary; the Mother of Jesus Christ, that part of the Blessed Holy Trinity that comprises our Creator!

God bless.

Saturday is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Today let us meditate on her solitude during those three years of her Divine Son’s public life.

The role of the Blessed Virgin during the public life of her Son was totally hidden: a life of loving contemplation, prayer and sacrifice. An essential part of this sacrifice was her solitude.

But what loneliness! Let us think of a poor widow when her only son is at war: what anguish! She is told that he will have to take part in a very dangerous battle, what agony! And at last she is told that death is inevitable, what an ordeal! What bitter loneliness for such a mother,whose life can be compared to a deserted road that ends in the desert.

But what are these examples of human loneliness compared to the life of Our Lady? For her, her Child Jesus and her Bridegroom…

PERE JACQUES – The Christ-like French Priest (Part II)

Auschwitz, Poland – May 25, 2016: Barbed wire fence at the Auschwitz concentration camp, the biggest extermination camp in Europe built by Nazi.

When I think of the suffering and yet noble attitude of this man Pere Jacques in the face of such depravity and absolutely abhorrent inhuman behavior directed upon so many innocent people and him; yet he didn’t flinch in his duties before the Lord; I’m in awe!

Many of us at one time or another cry out that we are in pain or suffering in one way or another; sometimes even feigning attention and craving consoling or the licking of our wounds. I don’t want to make anything of it but I had done some, what I felt was very unnecessary suffering at the hands of highly partisan, corrupted, political nefarious persons who are of this NWO cult these days, but, when I consider what others especially like this man had to endure I know my own suffering wasn’t so great that it even really matters at all. I think now, so what if I suffered, I’ve also had so many blessings and amazing opportunities many of which the majority of people in the world don’t have or ever experience.

Yes, we should count our blessings instead; and then seek that inner strength that Pere had which can only come from devout faith and humility; as in making an offering of our lives to Him above, who makes all things possible, our heavenly Father through Jesus Christ; who we must remember is God and made Himself one of us in the flesh; who actually suffered “all” the sins of the world accompanied by “all” the pain and suffering that goes with them. Do you see how this gave Him as God the total ability to know every single thing that we experience and go through, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of being a “fallen human being” and what that does to us and actually “feels like?”

Yes; He loves us that much that He would take upon Himself full responsibility for all our misgivings and sins. So perfect that we have God, our Savior too, who is “all” that and makes our individual existences more precious than we can understand, because, only He knows each of us “completely” and has a plan for every one of us; if we will believe in Him until the end, no matter how difficult this journey becomes! Accept it all with honor, dignity and thanks, giving all of our hearts to Him; who is the only One who can return to us all we will ever need beyond our wildest imaginations! Amen.

At this time, he met with his friend, Lucien Weil, an eminent botanist. Upon seeing a yellow star on his friend’s coat, he bristled with indignation. Passive acceptance of discrimination made one complicit in the Vichy government’s adoption of the Nazi race-based policy of anti-Semitism, a policy that had already excluded Jews from most Government positions, including teaching at State schools. Professor Weil had been removed from his professorship at the Lycee Carnot at Fontainbleau. Pere Jacques immediately invited Professor Weil to teach science at the Petit-College. His friend accepted the invitation and joined the faculty when the school resumed in 1942.

Following occupation by the Germans of the previously autonomous Free Zone held by the Vichy government in November…

I actually see more people now who are being demonically influenced or possessed than I ever imagined I would in my lifetime and I’m no expert by any means or stretch of the imagination! But that says something significant if its become more noticeable and these demons don’t even try to hide in some cases just like the behavior we see in significant political figures, say like those in Congress here in the US that are so over the top blatantly on the attack not caring what harm they are doing to the Nation and its founding Constitution or Bill of Rights; the only thing that matters to them is getting their way no matter what it is they are after; which always revolves around more power and control!

Those are serpentine and demonic desires and goals so everybody better wake up to how bad things have gotten and how much worse they are going to get if a major breakthrough doesn’t come, to not only expose all the corruption of the Democrat party and others including many Republicans; but to actually lock them all away for good! Because if not you mark my words; if Biden and all the rest of these ghoulish minions are allowed to continue demons will be the order of the day in America and the world as more evil comes into play all around us!

What we’ve seen going on and the suffering is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg! What occurred in Washington D.C. on January 6th, America’s Nation Capitol; going from a planned event that was billed as a peaceful protest over the Election Fraud and support of a President, but then somehow went from a peaceful rally to Insurrection; was all an orchestrated event that demons and bad people in the US government as minions of that evil created to hurt Trump and his supporters in order to usher in Marxist rule by their covert manipulation of this initially peaceful event that was then seen by more people as a riot. The Devil is having a field day with playing both sides against the middle! Creating division and mayhem is Satan’s specialty! We can see all the way back to Cain and Abel how he did that! God help us. Amen.

The video was published inGerman,English,Spanish,Portuguese,ItalianandFrench.

The battle lines in this struggle are between truth and error, and naturalism and supernaturalism, Schneider explains. He notices that there is an enormous confusion in doctrine, morals and liturgy, so that even good people start doubting about basic truths like moral tenets regarding contraception, divorce or adultery.

The truth is obscured with suggestive formulations, Schneider analyses and mentions expressions such as “primacy of mercy,” “surprises of the Holy Spirit,” “paradigm shift,” “individual conscience,” “pastoral accompaniment” or “process of discernment”. Interestingly, these formulations are all used by Francis.

PERE JACQUES – The Christ-like French Priest (Part 1)

I had just finished an early afternoon Saturday dinner and sat down to read while listening to some Wang Chung music from the movie sound track “To Live and Die in LA,” a place I had lived for some time moving there alone to be with the movie industry but was the place I had a huge epiphany that told me get out of here which I wrote a blog about!
This is the selection I’m hearing as I read your article:
https://youtu.be/0lLQ3bNz0mI?list=PLqnnuEVGcRQz8lPQUcB4P9WLW16CIySh3

As this selection of the music just began I saw this new blog article of yours in my mail cue and it was the first I had to click! I don’t want to paraphrase so much here but would rather just first quote the very first portion of this marvelous and outstanding article of truth and awe; as it struck me in my heart like a freight train with passion and emotion; it made me cry.

“We have characters presented to us as ‘heroes’ by our unfortunate popular culture – one-dimensional personalities, possessed of superficial bravery or worldly qualities that are socially esteemed, who grab our attention momentarily but whose stories fail to provide a standard of any depth or lasting value. And yet, right in front of us, we have real people in our Catholic history who provide to us an example by which we have profound and lasting guidance on how to live a rich and fulfilled life – how to strive to attain the best of ourselves. Pere Jacques is one such person, a man whose inspirational character and Christ-like love for his fellow man grew in adversity, in the horrors and evil of World War II, with all its attendant cruelty and human failures, a man possessed of incredible bravery – a courage that was founded, not on worldly qualities, but on an abandonment of self and a focus on the eternal, the presence of God in all circumstances, not ‘even’, but especially, in the most cruel and inhuman landscape of the Nazi concentration camps.”

This is a piece of literature to me that digs deep into the inner mind and soul because of the gripping truth is other worldly and spiritual for some reason aside from the subject matter of WWII and the horrors that occurred during that war and how much suffering along with to me what any human with a heart and soul should find incomprehensible death, that actually happened, because of human weakness and evil that has a grip on this world and many people in it; which is always looking to manipulate and orchestrate conflict and hatred as from he start with Cain and Abel, to bring agony to human beings. I was involved with the Movie Industry over the years in a few capacities so I still maintain some interest, mostly in studying older classic films and some of the better ones made over the last 40 years, especially cognizant of the musical scores; so I have a wide array and collection of that kind of music but interesting to me was how that music from “To Live and Die in LA” was playing as I read this article crying still. But then another movie opening score starting playing which was about a “transformational journey” for a man who was so mean, filled with rage, while quite material in his lifestyle or mindset, as you mention here of how some people live for power and recognition or material wealth. This man ends up killing his brother in a rage but then later in the story after realizing what he is sees God’s light and he goes through a physical journey that is both dangerous and necessary; for him to face his inner demons in order to go on and become what will be pleasing to God and not just living for himself, to make an offering of himself to God in order to express his great sorrow and admit his wrong not even just for forgiveness but as much to repay God in a sense; to reflect appreciation for God having given him this second chance to do right in God’s eyes with the miracle of life that was provided to him out of pure love; as God always did and still does. The movie is, “The Mission;” a movie and story about epiphany and I’m crying again.
This fits so well how this unfolded to this music and theme in this moment in time; God’s will be done. The composer is one I love a top of my favorites, Ennio Morricone who has produced some great musical scores for some very memorable films! I’m including this piece of music here that was playing as I finished reading and wrote this! Thank you and God bless you.
Amazon lists it this way:”This is my favorite Wang Chung song as well as the best thing about the movie. It has an amazing mix of hope and despair, tension and release, running throughout it. Whether to satisfy 80s nostalgia or to provide a driving beat to accompany one’s own internal struggles, this is a good song to put in the queue.”

The Mission composer Morricone was mentioned this way by:
Francesca M; Gabriel Coronado says; on YouTube: “In Italy we are used to have a free concert on May 1, usually in Rome is the biggest. Some years ago, maestro morricone was the ending act of that concert. He conducted the orchestra. My friends decided to leave, they were not interested. I stayed. Don’t know how to express how I felt. Alone in the crowd with the music that really stroked me. It was absolutely breathtaking. At least, I can say I have once enjoyed his timeless art. Have a good journey maestro, we all will miss you so badly.”
Gabriel Coronado says;This is probably the most beautiful movie theme ever written (and the idiots of the so call Academy did not gave him the Oscar. Unbelievable). Rest in peace, GENIUS!😢
Giorgio Fedeli says;Thank you, Morricone.I’m a nurse, i’m workin 12 hours every day against this Corona virus. And Morricone’s music help me to feel better after a very hard day in hospital.
Jan Windels says; No war, no sickness, no evil can destroy this… This music is food for the soul! Thanks Maestro.
Killer Queen says;This is how heaven might sound like
https://youtu.be/oag1Dfa1e_E

God does work in mysterious ways and we must never lose hope that He is present in our daily lives loving us so tenderly wanting for us to do our best to hold on to this hope so we can be with Him for eternity in Paradise!
God bless you. Amen

Continuing with our posts on the lives of exceptionally courageous and holy priests [see HERE, HERE and HERE] who have yet to be raised to the official calendar of Saints of the Catholic Church, today we have the poignant story from ‘Venite Prandete’ of Father Jacques who was martyred by the Nazis.

We have characters presented to us as ‘heroes’ by our unfortunate popular culture – one-dimensional personalities, possessed of superficial bravery or worldly qualities that are socially esteemed, who grab our attention momentarily but whose stories fail to provide a standard of any depth or lasting value. And yet, right in front of us, we have real people in our Catholic history who provide to us an…

Why I Love Thee Mary

WOW never saw this and is beautiful! Truth! Thank you Kathleen! We should and most do love their biological earth mothers but we all need Mother Mary! So amazing and blessed to have her! Amen.

Look at this as I think it says something about Mothers too! Love is present and I just saw this a moment ago! Good Lord! This was my response!
My God! He does work in mysterious ways and is always there even though it doesn’t always seem to add up! God has His plan and reasons for things! Faith; believe in Him!
Thank you for this; I have to share, especially with a sister who is a huge cat fancier! She will have tears; she rescued a tiny undersized dwarf cat off a city street named it Salem! Biblical reason; this reinforces that story too! So amazing I’m teary eyed too! 🙏✝️✡️❤️🙏

We have eyes to see and ears to hear! So LOOK and SEE, listen as well outwardly and inwardly! A Cat can demonstrate care and concern for innocent life so how can humans do what they are doing on this earth with no regard and even for sinister reasons!!!
God bless!

Catholicism Pure & Simple

This is the last poem written by ‘The Little Flower’, St Thérèse of Lisieux, before her death at the age of 24 in 1897. Naturally, Thérèse wrote her poems in French, so this is one of the English translations of the poem. It is no easy task to translate a poem from one language to another, but I believe the best effort was made by the translator in this case to retain the flow and sentiments of the much-loved saint’s work.

How appropriate that Thérèse’s final poem should be dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary whose statue had miraculously turned and smiled on Thérèse in her childhood. For months she had been lying prostrate in bed from a mysterious illness, but from that day of Mary’s smile, the young Thérèse made an astonishing and complete recovery.

Do not be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much, you will…

Persecution of Traditional Catholics will accelerate

This is excellent and speaks volumes to what I said today in another long comment of mine to another of your CPS articles that annoyed me because it seemed to not register with people what huge deception is taking place in the Catholic Church via this most horrendous creature of a man Joe Biden with his vile supporter none other than the false Pope Bergoglio; and that blog article it had some commentary that to me was way to trite or dismissive of the evil closing in on us all; the Faithful of the Catholic Church. Perfect you brought all of this to the fore! Great job here to enlighten and I have to read it a couple of times to let it settle in, all the good being shown here.

Iconclast Persecution of the Catholic Church

It is a fact: the trend toward an outright persecution of traditional Catholics – those who live faithfully by all the teachings and precepts of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church – is not only continuing, but accelerating. Liberal-minded cafeteria ‘c’atholics, together with the hypocrites who profess to be Catholic, i.e., go to Mass regularly, brandish their rosaries, public state the importance of their Catholic Faith to the world, but then pick and choose only the parts of the Church’s doctrines that suit them, willfully disobeying those that don’t suit, and dismissing any ‘uncomfortable’ truth… these false followers of Christ may be overlooked by the agents of Satan when the time comes for the Great Persecution. After all, they are already Satan’s useful minions for having spread scandal, leading numerous souls on the path to Hell, and showing total indifference to having thrown…

Joe Biden Eats and Drinks His Own Spiritual Death

It goes beyond this man being a heretic and imposter on so many fronts! This man is diabolical and I believe he is worshiping Satan over Jesus Christ; in fact I look at Biden as an antichrist even if not the actual one and only himself; he certainly emulates that demon! I was talking to a sister recently about praying for our enemies and those who have hurt us in our own personal lives; but when we got to the subject of those that serve the diabolical and do it willingly say like the way Adolph Hitler did and many of his henchmen of the Gestapo SS we agreed why would we waste our prayers on actual demons or those that want to share hell with them? I won’t pray for Satan or any of his demons along with any person who over many years has been partaking of the powers and influences of Hell gladly; while doing harm to so many things especially the unborn by such horrendous policies as promoting abortion; even full term murder. No; I will not pray for any such vile degenerate soul and I see Biden as plain as day fitting this type of heretic impostor and servant of hell! Remember this man has done and still does many blaspheming things before God and man; as well he isn’t really an elected President but is a thief and stole it with the aid of the criminals in the establishment and Deep State who have something to gain with such a man of treachery being in such a position of power and influence; so they either truly want him to be this false Puppet of Hell POTUS or they capitulate for personal reasons. The Liberals and Left are jumping for joy because Sin and Immorality; even Blaspheming God Almighty, just got a green light and license with this Imposter being Installed as POTUS! So, I’m keenly aware how horrible things have gotten by this monster of a human Imposter President, with his equally scary backup Harris, taking over the helm of my country’s government; the diabolical are looking to destroy and that means they are after me and all people who will not see things their way; so I pray to God to strike him deader than a door nail sooner rather than later! This evil man and many others are working in lockstep with Satan; to make this world Hell on Earth! That is how I truly see it! You don’t make your statement against all of this and him strong enough in my opinion! You better clarify your position and standing before Jesus Christ and our Father in heaven more succinctly and absolutely! Amen.

Biden Mass

By Austen Ruse at Crisis Magazine:

Yesterday morning at the grand Cathedral of St. Matthew in Washington D.C., Joe Biden ate and drank his own spiritual death. That he received the Holy Eucharist from the hands of a Cardinal of the Church adds scandal upon scandal. One radio wag called it a mass for Planned Parenthood. And so, it was.

Joe Biden is an enemy of the Catholic faith. This fact must be repeated as often as humanly possible. Joe Biden holds himself out as a faithful Catholic, yet he does not believe in the faith’s fundamental teachings about the human person or human sexuality. What’s more, he advances this unbelief in public policy and will now have the full force of the federal government behind this unbelief.

We know what he will do soon after taking the oath. He will reinstitute a policy that will use American money to…

This is WWIII

“George Orwell’s visionary science fiction world” “the world going to hell in a hand basket”

We can say for all intent and purposes that we’ve been in WWIII for some time now. We’ve heard so much about the Global Reset and NWO which is all true and the war is against us Citizens by our own evil corrupt governments! China takes the lead in being the most brutal totalitarian evil empire on earth with Iran and others trailing behind. The genocide is going to step up dramatically now that this evil Man Biden has been illegitimately installed into a position of authority that he neither deserves nor will carry out in accordance with the US Constitution! There are many dots to be connected in the global arena that once you see the connections you realize just how bad things will be in short order! I wrote several long comments or essays over the last 24 hours and a couple of them mostly written and published today dovetail with this so truthful but horrendously sad article; so I’m going to include them here to hopefully share some valuable insights and truth.
Yes there is a scourge upon societies around the globe simultaneously effectuating drastic change in people; much of it not good! I agree with you that this sickness, fear and death is so rampant while being so devastating that it literally has turned our daily lives upside down and is causing many people to be in a sort of panic mode; like frightened animals being corralled or captured and in essence subjugating us to being nothing more than herds of wild beasts being gathered in preparation for slaughter. Yes, one of the Horses of the Apocalypse has arrived spreading its many evils through lies and deception to poison minds but more importantly hearts in order to do what we should ask? First to turn away from each other as a community of social beings made in the likeness of God in order to weaken our Humanity but then in addition to causing this modification to our behavior and practices its primary goal is to turn us away from God! Because then the dirty lie and deception will be complete and we’ll have been subdued, captured and taken control of; then to be used as minions of evil causing us to lose our immortal souls to Satan. What you say here and I quote, “Social distancing is a wonderful way to begin to dismantle our liberty of freedom of assembly and limit conversations at the same time,” This is very insightful and is clearly fact to truth in that a very concise plan of mass deception by means of targeted lies and a biological fraud as a weapon to propel this pack of lies was designed and implemented by the enemies of humanity and God to bring ruin via that Trojan Horse as you say! And those enemies are both overseas primarily China’s CCP and also right here in our Homeland many minions of evil within our government seat of power in Washington along with smaller groups of individuals in local governments and some industries such as media; throughout the Nation working for the same cause which is to thoroughly disenfranchise the citizens from their US Constitutional Rights, and even more important to those enemies who take their marching direct from hell; to strip us of all hope and belief in our Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, in order to leave us in a state of desperation or hopelessness! This will prime a lost humanity for the antichrist who will offer so much to appease in order that he will be worshiped in place of God making him our master.

At this point many will be willing to take the mark of allegiance to him in order to survive in a world turned upside down where everything will be micromanaged making it a totalitarian hell on earth; much like “George Orwell’s visionary science fiction world” depicted in his novel “1984!” Months ago when this Plan-Demic began I wrote a blog which touched on this and many related points which I felt or was inspired to say at that time; as to how I saw the orchestrating controlling effect which was being deployed upon societies around the globe! I readily saw this as like another science fiction story Planet of the Apes in which humans become the dominated species of animal on earth as you may recall from the old film which starred Charlton Heston; whereby in the future Apes take us over and control humans as herd animals! So the way things are going with the “communist plan” they are the Apes as I see them, but, in reality they are a subspecies of humans who are diabolically possessed by supernatural forces from hell.
As I see it we are all in for the fight of our lives and literally for our lives; but more importantly our “immortal souls.” Our faith is of course the key to dealing with the tough road ahead and we must remain vigilant to the Word of God and practice our faithful worship of God as best we can under these very difficult circumstances! As it is said; “where there is a will there is a way,” and I must add to that, “Where there is faith there is hope!” We will overcome, by means of our love for God in the precious name of Jesus Christ! Amen.

You speak about conscience here and let me tell you this from my clear perspective mostly derived from my first hand horrific experience with other human beings over the last 15 years. People are for the most part divorced from such great humanity of true genuine conscience in today’s world and most are on the diabolical ride of self-aggrandizement and stupidity or even worse than that true hate of others and even self! This world is so ugly and corrupted with sin now that you can’t tell me that any rational and sane person shouldn’t watch his or her back continually even when turned to coworkers, neighbors and sadly in many cases even family or kin folk! Like you now, are a stranger to me and even these Pope’s are strangers to me, so I don’t care one bit or Iota what they are purported to have done or not! Maybe they were tricked to take the vaccine but because the diabolical is at work now at a fever pitch, as we now; I’m quite sure are in the End Time, we have clearly seen how Bergoglio is a wolf in a sheep’s clothing and a real monster, who even made a big push for Biden a truly evil man, a man to me whose soul is as corruptible as Adolph Hitler’s was! And during a major life threatening crisis and a scandalous local tribulation that took place here a several years back; when I wrote to Bergoglio a very genuine from my heart plea letter with specifics, which he didn’t even acknowledge, and do you know why; because I was dealing with the same Freemason devils of which he is a partner with, so they turned up the heat on me instead; go figure!

Do I care one Iota what he thinks does or says; absolutely not, he is a devil to me and so this illustration you present means nothing but more smoke and mirrors! The whole reason for vaccines now was concocted by an evil diabolical alliance between the CCP and various nefarious agents here in the US along with others in the WHO with the roll out of the Pandemic Hoax to start a manipulation of the world’s peoples to submit to the NWO Global Reset. This Wuhan Corona Virus or COVID-19 is less virulent a strain of virus than the annual flu and the survival rate is near or approaching 99.97%! Why in the world would I take a vaccine for such a thing when common sense dictates to me that I catch a cold nearly every year, which I just did and within a few days using my home remedies and rest was over it no more sneezing and feeling ill? God gave me the immune system and raw botanicals along with foods to keep the immune system functioning well enough; so to me this vaccine is totally unnecessary and a trick by the most nefarious humans on the planet to make people sheeple, and prepare them for the antichrist’s arrival on the world stage which I think is coming quite soon, a matter of a few years or less.
Take what I say in conjunction with what just happened here in the One Nation under God the United States of America with all of the evil trickery and lies going on in Washington D.C. the hub of its governmental or earthly power, where now we see the betrayal of the Good President Trump not just by so many dirty crooked even criminal politicians during his whole term in office but even the so called Christian V.P. Pence who started in life as a Catholic and went onto be a born again Christian or whatever, so he says; but in the hour of reckoning to deal with the obvious fraudulent laden rigged or fixed election to “install” a false POTUS Puppet, the sinister most despicable candidate in history Biden, as the President Elect!
But Pence didn’t do his sworn duty and carry out his oath of office to protect the US Constitution and the Republic by asking for a fully certified audit of all legal votes which is in the laws and he being the President of the Senate could have requested that, to make sure all is in order, and that would be a normal thing to do but instead he stabbed the President and Nation in the heart like some monster who was lying in wait for his big chance to do evil which he did in spades; a Judas Priest if you will! All of which is in alignment with the “diabolical global plan to usher in the antichrist;” and to anyone with a real conscience which obviously hundreds of millions of people lack just by the sheer fact that they don’t see anything wrong with this fiasco and don’t really care! So cliché as it is; the expression of, “the world going to hell in a hand basket,” yet now it fits perfectly never having been more fitting than now! We are all sitting and staring into the precipice and hell is beckoning to pull in as many as will be willing or can be “tricked” into its eternal damnation!
So, no I will not accept any vaccine as a matter of fact I never take any annual flu shots so why would I suddenly jump on board with this big lie? With all I have gone through personally with local politicians, doctors, lawyers and chiefs when I was the only person to speak up and write about corruption by many of them regarding their nefarious dealings and plans, because the news people which I used to be a part of once upon a time were not saying a word about the corruption by the powerful and corrupt minions; I became a target for them all, and they worked in earnest to destroy me but they only failed because God Almighty wouldn’t allow it and brought a couple of the right people to my aid in order to help save my life when I needed them; in the nick of time. So there is where my trust has been and will remain; in God through Jesus Christ; not science or any fake Pope or totally lying Media! I turn my back on this world of evil rampant corruption and decadent sin of what you even mention here about using fetal cells harvested, which to me is more for commercial purposes that’s what it’s really about, coupled with other ulterior motives; let alone the full term day of delivery abortions along with now all the industrial scale abortions taking place on a massive global scale; so I turn my back now on a fully perverse world; just like they did to Jesus long ago and they now repeat human history with that same evil hate and pretend to care or believe, when in their hearts they are lying fakes like Bergoglio or Pelosi, Pence and the rest on down the line!
I see no reason to trust any vaccine or the rhetoric which accompanies it so I will never take them and won’t trust the crooked ways of this world ever again; this world is dying fast and “Armageddon” is fast approaching believe you me; I know it in my bones! We have one choice and decision to make; heaven or hell; which of these do we choose; because we must, should even be willing to die for it? I know all of this doesn’t sound uplifting or is rather very negative in tone but I’m not here to give lip service or be a cheerleader giving some pep talk. Coming from a fairly large family I was the constant eternal optimist and the one watching after all the others even my mother at times trying to always mend fences and help others to understand things whether science or personal problems, especially of the mind and heart; and of course to know Jesus and His words as to what they teach us. So one must ask why this man would talk this way coming from that background, is he angry at the world or hates too. No not at all, it all just bothers me too much as I see how limited the time is to prepare for the inevitable and people are not diligent enough or multitudes either don’t care to see the light and truth or they are so messed up they don’t have a clue. I should be frightened by all this mayhem but that is not my overwhelming emotion, but rather I feel compelled to try harder to speak truth where and when I can to help anyone who will listen and wants to find God’s will in their own life; before it’s too late! I’m more of an announcer I guess we can say, maybe ringing a bell and sounding an alarm; but it’s all I’ve got. I wrote a couple of paragraphs to another theological site last night speaking candidly about the coming tribulation and this person thought I was saying something amiss regarding the time table to End Time, so I did a bit of clarifying which I want to share here as well. I didn’t plan any of this it was just all spontaneous as I feel deeply in my heart; so just discern all I say and pray to God through Jesus Christ to guide you to the absolute Truth; God’s truth, and you will be fine, please do that.

Hi and you’re welcome! Believe me I’m no expert about anything to do with End Time but I see many component parts that will be necessary to bring on the events spoken of in the Holy Scriptures! I think President Trump was put in place by God to bring into alignment certain pieces of the puzzle if you will, mainly the recent “Middle East Peace Accords” between Israel and neighboring Arab Nations; something Obama and Biden didn’t scratch the surface on for those eight dark years of the Obama administration; the time period when I had my worst personal trials in my life brought on by very evil, nefarious politically corrupted minions who were huge supporters of him; in my locale. Obama, Trump’s nemesis was doing all the opposite things Trump has done and was hiding the fact that he wanted to crush Israel while ruining America, and who knows he might be the Anti-Christ or at least a huge facilitator with Biden; but I’m positive Obama is at least a very diabolical man having much to do with End Time along with Biden. This to me is a clear sign that the clock is counting down when taken into account with the strong buildup of anti-Israel forces namely Turkey and Iran with even Russia “the Bear” from the North cooperating while Iran this week just announced they have nuclear warheads or at least plenty of enriched uranium to place in missiles; and with Erdogan who has a very bellicose nature on the world stage and his wanting to hurry and bring Turkey back to past Ottoman Empire Stature throughout the Middle East; as well on into Europe, ushering in a giant Islamist Caliphate, and he along with the Ayatollah in Iran want the destruction of Israel, both having even recently said as much!
Tying into this is the fact that a wicked highly corrupted man Biden, a puppet for China, who I believe is demonically influenced or even possessed has been illegally installed as President to help facilitate this climate of hate toward Israel, which of course is the key here; to attack God and his chosen children via the birthplace of the Messiah, in these next few years during Biden’s term in office. This may very well match up with the coming “abomination of desolation” when antichrist enters the temple in Jerusalem and declares that he is God. Being that, to me, potentially the man of perdition Biden; has a four year term in this elected office, the commencement of the tribulation could have started with the recent Peace Accords, and this false Presidency in the Nation under God; America. I tend to think this means that Jesus will be coming soon in the next several years but those spared the horrific time of tribulation which will be the 2nd half of this current seven year period under way means the spared faithful will be taken away in the rapture just before the horrors brought by the horses of the apocalypse, which I believe in Scriptures is pointed out when “the abomination of desolation will stand in the holy place of the temple;” the antichrist. Matthew 24:15 ; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
Daniel 9:27 indicates that the seven year tribulation period starts with a peace treaty. In conjunction with this now, is that the false Pope Bergoglio has strayed from his real church duties and inserted himself into powers and principalities or corrupted ways of the world, namely the UN and China’s CCP; further throwing the Geo-political stage into further disarray while he encourages these already mentioned events; I see the evil working in him as in these other key world figures as the definite beginning of the end, as they are all diabolically influenced leaders and circumstances! Armies of the nations of the world will be defeated at the Battle of Armageddon. This period of time which we know is called the Great Tribulation by Christ (Matthew 24:21). The Second Coming of Jesus Christ occurs in verses 29-30

I’ll just say I know from my own personal trials and the ugliness I’ve witnessed or had to suffer due to evil people around me over the last 15 years, the lack of real genuine humanity, while seeing these frenzied evils growing around the world; I can tell without a doubt that we are all on the precipice of hell! We know from WWII history how ugly a turn the world took back then, but they didn’t have anywhere near the technologies and totalitarian capabilities that we have now along with nuclear and biological weapons that will destroy the entire planet and all life on it! We are close to the end believe me! Humans are way too flawed and diseased to fix this nightmare they are building; which is spawned from Satan. This is a frightful time and so many people are wicked; just look at those politicians in Washington, so vile and serpentine in their self-righteous ways! Forked tongue devils on steroids! No, I don’t know enough to be any expert, but, I know hell is close now! Those who want to be saved had better get their affairs in order fast! Turning to the Lord and washing their robes daily in order to not be left out of the wedding banquet.
…11″But when the king came in to see the guests, he spotted a man who was not dressed in wedding clothes. 12‘Friend,’ he asked, ‘how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ But the man was speechless. 13Then the king told the servants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”…Matthew 22:11-13
I hope my point of view will help you & others who are so tired of all the terribly rotten things that have been going on & still are in our Great Republic under God and around the globe! God is watching & His plan is perfect even though the best of men’s plans must eventually fail. Our hope is in Him!

I want to leave something I find very insightful by a man we all know was a remarkably brilliant person who I think even though his head was immersed in the world of science and theories he had a keen insight into God’s presence and reality like few people can achieve with our limiting cognitive faculties.; and his respect and love of God was present and genuine; therefore we can say God will judge accordingly, I know for myself Einstein was a good and respectful soul in this world, so I do wish him well. What follows I was writing about back at this mentioned date.

Einstein on Self and the Mystical
“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”
-Albert Einstein, 1954
“The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms – this knowledge, this feeling is at the centre of true religiousness.”
-Albert Einstein – “The Merging of Spirit and Science”
This man the father of physics had said a few great one liners but two that stand out are these. He referred to God as the “Old One.” He speaking to other physicists was known to have said during a discussion about the Big Bang Theory in which one scientist said that with enough random events occurring in this pre-millisecond before it happened eureka the right combination occurred; Einstein just plainly said; “God doesn’t roll dice.”
God bless you all.
