When a strong pope with a clear
social agenda intersects with a world leader who shares the same basic
outlook, and one who's willing to put elbow grease behind it, sometimes
history can change.
With the support of King Philip II of
Spain, for instance, St. Pius V promoted a "Holy League" that turned
back a possible Ottoman Muslim conquest of Europe at the Battle of
Lepanto in 1571. Four centuries later, St. John Paul II and US
President Ronald Reagan joined forces in a successful effort to bring
down Soviet Communism.
Though with a different set of
priorities, Pope Francis has
a similar ambition to shape history.
The question facing Francis in 2016
is: Who's the political

What immediately came to mind was our warning published some years

the Catholic Church – in particular, by Opus Dei, Benedict XVI, and the
Marian Movement of Priests....

"restoring Christendom," the expectation of a coming "Great King" and
"Holy Pontiff,"..... all prepare the way for the False Christ and
his teachings. Likewise, any attempt to attain justice and peace

manifestation of False Christ thinking.

you aware about.... the scandalous light show Francis used
further desecrate the seat of Roman Catholicism? (1)
the striking imagery of last week's (on December 8th, no less!)
"climate change" light
show at the Vatican – its beautiful landscapes, colorful animals,
birds, insects, flowers, and sea creatures – many will remember it as
an offensive moment when the Vatican partnered with her enemies to use
one of its greatest churches, on one of the Church's greatest feast
days, to broadcast a deeply controversial political statement.
Yet in addition to
this basic issue, there are also grave concerns
to consider about the nature of the show's content, and in particular,
its apparent use of New Age spirituality.
Obscura Digital first
unveiled the show’s prototype in New York on August 1 when it was
projected onto the iconic Empire State Building. The message in both
the New York and Vatican shows was the same: man-made climate change is
destroying the planet, and along with it numerous animal species. The
show’s creators called the New York venue a “warm-up act” for the
When Obscura Digital ran this
“warm-up act” in New York, they included images of pagan goddesses
alongside those focusing on the beauty of creation or the plight of
“We have Gaia, and Aya, and Mother
Earth appears,” said Travis Threlkel, founder and creative director of
Obscura, in an August interview about the New York version of the show.
The greek pagan goddess Gaia is a Greek Mother Earth who has been
appropriated by worshipers of nature. Aya is a Babylonian mother
goddess associated with the rising sun and with sexual love.
The artist who created these
goddess images, “Android” Andrew Jones, said at that time that he
wanted to depict Mother Earth in her “fiercest form” to draw attention
to what might happen if people ignored the implications of climate
explained in an interview last month that he uses “psychedelic
substances” (mind altering drugs) to help him portray the occult
deities accurately. He said the deities are “actively involved,
enrolled, and contributing” in guiding his hand as he makes the work.
The word "oscura" has the following meaning in English: dark, obscure, dim,
shadowy, dusky, murky, gloomy.
No doubt about it - only the deaf and blind will not recognize what
Francis represents, and that is the way it should be.
And he said to them: To you it is given to
know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but to them that are without,
all things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not
perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand: lest at any
time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. [Mark

Today we will set aside theological themes and address
security - actually - lack of it.
Recently, for very innocent reasons - like looking up a phone number on
line - we have become aware of the large amount of very personal
information that is available on line for anyone to see. Our reaction
has not been surprise; it has been shock. We have landed on pages where
the names of individuals are listed with their Social Security numbers,
who their neighbors are, etc., etc.
While just looking for a phone number we landed in a service which did
not look real. "It just could not be!", we thought. We decided to find
out how real they were and proceeded to go along with them without
releasing any personal information about myself.
After they asked questions to narrow down the search about the
(questions which confirmed to us that they really were on his/her
track) we were about to receive a very generous dossier of
individual whose phone number we were only seeking. The information
provider reminded us - several
times - that we might be shocked with
what we may read about him/her and we had to agree that we accepted
that emotional risk for them to proceed.
Just about the time they started to download the report we left the
page in disgust never to see such report nor remember the site address
A close collaborator asked us to run a Google search on her/him to show
us that.... not only they had her/his address and phone number on line
but they also had a map with a pin indicating the location as well as a
photograph of the correct
side of the building - which is part of a complex of
buildings - where she/he lived, as well as a listing of all the
neighbors she/he had.
In summary - it is far, far worse that we imagined.
As we have said many times - we should not concerned (for now) -
whether the FBI or the NSA, CIA, Scotland Yard, etc. read everything we
write, and hear everything we say, etc., etc. What we should be
concerned about is about those who have no business in profiling us and
do and then making it
available to anyone
who wishes to view it.
Being that the Internet is a useful tool and is here to stay, there are
some ways that we can navigate in a manner that no information about
ourselves is shared "with the world" even though the site that we may
be visiting may think so.
We use Mozilla's Firefox navigator and have done so for some
years. Now they have a Private
Browsing mode where the cybernaut cannot be tracked through the
pages visited or searches made. That is:
Searches, Cookies, Temporary Files
are not saved while Downloads and Bookmarks are saved.
They do advice that "...your employer
or Internet service provider can
still track the pages you visit".
That should be of no of concern for upright individuals like those who
are on this mailing list.
You may chose the cookies that you may want to always have saved in
your computer - like those of a Web Mail service that you may use or a
subscription to the a publication, etc. The others, the moment you
leave the page in question, are deleted. Therefore, even though the
domain that you visited "planted their cookies" on your
computer - allowing you to see all you want on their pages (sometimes
when cookies are blocked by defect there is very little one my be
allowed to see in a page) - they are deleted before you access the next
page. That is - your navigation cannot be tracked/traced by no one
except by "...your employer or
Internet service provider".
If you wish that we give you more information on how to get started in
getting this set up
in your computer, let us know and we will send the information to you
as time allows it.

..... Louis Farrakhan issued a warning about what will happen if Donal
Trump becomes the next U.S. President? (1)
The Minister Louis Farrakhan has a
warning for the American public: “If Donald Trump becomes president, he
will take America into the abyss of hell.”
That’s the message that the controversial Nation of Islam leader
delivered in a recent video that was posted to his Facebook page.
In it, Farrakhan said that Trump has certainly “done great things in
the business world,” but charged that the Republican presidential
candidate is “exacerbating the race situation in America.”
“Mr. Trump is tearing away the skin of the onion of white civility and
the more he pulls the skin of that onion back, he’s beginning to show something
in the character of the whites that follow him, that they don’t
care what he says,” Farrakhan said.
He then proceeded to warn about what he believes will happen if Trump
At the end of the segment, he warned that America should be careful
before choosing Trump.
“You’re headed into the abyss of hell, and if you make a mistake in
choosing your leaders, maybe you’ll go there faster,” Farrakhan said.
In the Mass reading for today we hear God telling Samuel:
Tomorrow about this same hour I will send thee a man of the land of
Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be ruler over my people Israel:
and he shall save my people out of the hand of the Philistines: for I
have looked down upon my people, because their cry is come to me. 
And when Samuel saw Saul, the Lord said to him: Behold the man, of whom
I spoke to thee, this man shall reign over my people. [1
And Samuel took a little vial of oil and poured it upon his head, and
kissed him, and said: Behold, the Lord hath anointed thee to be prince
over his inheritance, and thou shalt deliver his people out of the
hands of their enemies, that are round about them. And this shall be a
sign unto thee, that God hath anointed thee to be prince. [1
But wait! What is going on? Did God forget what He said to Samuel when
the Israelites insisted on having a King to rule over them and
how they will suffer under a human King?
...they (the Israelites) should say: Give us a king, to judge us. And
Samuel prayed to the Lord.  And the Lord said to Samuel: Hearken to
the voice of the people in all that they say to thee. For they have not
rejected thee, but me, that I should not reign over them.  According
to all their works, they have done from the day that I brought them out
of Egypt until this day: as they have forsaken me, and served strange
gods, so do they also unto thee.  Now therefore hearken to their
voice: but yet testify to them, and foretell them the right of the
king, that shall reign over them. [1 Samuel 8]
Of course, God did not forget!
God by hand-picking Saul to be their King was trying to minimize the
suffering the Israelites were to endure by rejecting God as their King
and choosing a human who....
take your sons, and put them in his chariots, and will make them his
horsemen, and his running footmen to run before his chariots,  And
he will appoint of them to be his tribunes, and centurions, and to
plough his fields, and to reap his corn, and to make him arms and
chariots.  Your daughters also he will take to make him ointments,
and to be his cooks, and bakers.  And he will take your fields, and
your vineyards, and your best oliveyards, and give them to his
servants.  Moreover he will take the tenth of your corn, and of the
revenues of your vineyards, to give his eunuchs and servants.
 Your servants also and
handmaids, and your goodliest young men, and your asses he will take
away, and put them to his work.  Your flocks also he will tithe,
and you shall be his servants.  And you shall cry out in that day
from the face of the king, whom you have chosen to yourselves. and the
Lord will not hear you in that day, because you desired unto yourselves
a king. [1 Samuel 8]
God is always trying to minimize the suffering we bring upon
as a result of our almost genetic stupidity. Tragically, humans do not
notice it and, instead of correcting their ways, they do even worse!
But read on....
Yesterday we were informed...
the New Yorker published an article about what Pope Benedict knew about
sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. (1)

with the proverbial facts and figures - even before the sexual abuse
scandal broke out in the U.S.
For your information, we have made into a single document
communications that we sent to Ratzinger about this matter during
the year 1997.

for a fact - so we know that he read those letters.

The Book of Revelations - Who,

that, as the saying goes - "only God could understand" what the

We have become
of a very interesting meeting that took place in Moscow back in
Russian President Vladimir
Putin on Wednesday met with a delegation of rabbis, led by Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak
Yosef, former Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel
Lazar, and rabbis of the Rabbinical Center of Europe (RCE).
"I follow closely what's
going on in Israel," said Putin
during the long meeting,
which was held in Moscow.
"I support the
struggle of Israel as it attempts to protect its citizens. I
also heard about the shocking murder of the three youths. It is an act
that cannot be allowed, and I ask you to transmit my condolences to the
families," added the Russian president, in referring to the abduction
and murder of three teens in June by Hamas terrorists.
Rabbi Yosef began
by saying "according to the
Jewish tradition, your leadership is decided by the kingdom of G-d,
King of the world, and therefore we bless you: Blessed is the One who
gave of His glory to flesh and blood."
Putin responded to Rabbi Yosef,
asking him to tell Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that he is a true friend of Israel
and of Netanyahu.Netanyahu
called Putin on Thursday (the next day after the meeting),
and in their conversation, Putin called for an end to the conflict in

Jews or simply Sephardim

Jewish ethnic division whose ethnogenesis and emergence as a distinct
community of Jews coalesced in Spain and Portugal - around the start
of the 2nd millennium (i.e., about the year 1000). They established
communities.... evolving what would become their distinctive
characteristics and diasporic identity. (2)
(b) There are not even 2,000 Sephardi Jews in Russia although they are
many in Latin American countries like Argentina with a 50,000 strong
a reason for the delegation to Russia led by the Sephardic
(c) The US and Israeli leadership have been at odds for several years
and is about to get worse.
(d) The Argentinean Francis - a candidate for the "Holy Pope" (4) - seems
to be looking for a "Holy King" (5)
and his very close relationship with
Sephardic Jews is no secret.
(e) Spain, the origin of Sephardic Jews, is also the origin and home
base of Opus Dei (6)
- the very same ones who are pulling Francis "strings".

have debated whether we should publish the following story - in the
Spiritual Direction - because someone may think that I am

decided that the value it may have as Spiritual Direction for some far
a misunderstanding of my intentions. In addition, if someone in this
very restricted list does not know me enough to realize that I do not
engage in "blowing my horn", he/she does not belong in this list.
With that said, let us proceed.....
We have often said that we should
offer prayers, fasting and reasonable
getting into the sado-masochistic techniques of self flagellation,
cilice and similar S-M techniques. We have also pointed out that
through Her Fatima podium, told the Faithful to offer/accept any
and all difficulties that we encounter in our daily lives for: Love
of Jesus, in reparation for the offenses committed against the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
This includes major and minor
disruptions alike. Today we wish to
share with you a typical case in point. An unexpected opportunity to
offer great discomfort.
Thanks be to God, through those who
assist us, I can shower using hot
water (that has not always been the case) and that is what I was doing
a few days ago. Just as I was completely covered with soap - hair
included - the water heater shut down. The butane gas had just run out.
My choice was only one: rinse myself thoroughly with water at barely
Automatically, but very
consciously, I offered the
discomfort for Love
of Jesus, in reparation for the offenses committed against the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners,
followed by a prayer seeking the Grace of God so that I would not get a
serious respiratory ailment due to the dramatic and sudden change in
water temperature; however, should that had been His Will too, then it
was also offered in even before the first symptom would manifest itself.
If one maintains that mind-set you
will be surprised as to
how much reparation you can offer every single day - reparation which
God needs so that, in accordance to "Heavenly economics", suffering for
His Elect in
the world may be reduced.
With that said.... we would not
approve or recommend doing on purpose
what we just described above. That would fall into S-M. Let God choose
what we need to endure, and then, endure it with the joy that it will
yield much fruit.

2016 [Day After Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul]

Yesterday we visited Fatima to acquire supplies to be used when
offering the Holy Mass.
Upon our arrival there was something very significant that immediately
We have been in Fatima at least three times since the beginning of the
alleged papacy of Francis. In those visits we were shocked to see
statutes - of various sizes - of Francis in most religious stores that
we walked by or entered. They even surpassed in number those of John
Paul II who
had been already Beatified and with his Canonization around the
What caught our attention yesterday was the
complete absence of Francis's statues. In addition - in spite of his
stealing John Paul II's thunder regarding the Divine Mercy - we only
saw a small souvenir which had his picture associated with an image of
the Divine Mercy. Nonetheless, there was an amply supply of Divine
Mercy images of all sizes and styles.
We will let our readers draw their own conclusions considering how
Fatima has chilled towards Francis.
As you may recall.....
January 23rd we spoke about Israel's Sephardic Chief Rabbi
leading a delegation Russia and meeting with Russian President Putin.
We made a number of dot connections which seemed to make Mr. Putin a
good candidate for the "Holy King" - to go along with the "Holy Pope"
embodied by Francis in the falsified fulfillment of the alleged
prophecy that a Holy Pope and a Holy King will restore Peace throughout
Since then we stumbled upon an official statement made by
Mr. Putin in
2012 to the head of the Russian Orthodox Church whereby he made himself
the defender of Christianity:
The representative of
the Russian Orthodox Church has told Russian
Prime Minister Vladimir Putin .... of the urgent situation
Christians are facing around the world in persecution hot spots, and
has asked him to use his power to aid their situations.
the facts, Metropolitan
Hilarion asked Putin to
make protection and defense of Christianity around the globe a major
part of his foreign policy.
And, as reported by
Interfax, Putin replied,
"You needn't have any
doubt that that's the way it will be," assuring Hilarion that
foreign policy would defend Christians from persecution abroad.
recent actions seem to confirm his promise. Last week,
Putin vetoed a U.N. motion calling for Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad to
step down. Syrian Christians received this as good news.(1)
Then, yesterday we found out that:
Russia's Pacific capital,
will get the tallest statue
of Jesus Christ in the world.(2)
80 meters (over 260 ft) the monument to 'Christ the Teacher', by
Zurab Tsereteli, will stand
50 meters (165
ft) taller than the world famous
'Christ the Redeemer' in Rio de Janeiro, and two meters higher
'The Christ the King' in Lisbon.
In Vladivostok, the monument
will be composed of two parts: the statue itself and the pedestal
housing a cathedral in honour of Archangel Michael.
While we were trying to digest all of the above - and
without doing any
kind of research - we found out that Mr. Trump just announced that:
I'm president, 'Christianity will have power' in the US"
Billionaire businessman Donald
Trump suggested on Saturday that he would have had "less difficulty" if
he had proposed barring Christians from entering the US instead of
"If I said that about
Christians, and if I said 'banned,' I'm telling you I would have had
less difficulty," Trump said Saturday. "And that's pretty sad, because
we're Christians. I'm Protestant. I'm Presbyterian."

embraced the evangelical Christian community throughout the start of
his Saturday speech in Sioux Center, Iowa.

that Christians do not wield as much political influence in the US as

more afraid of Spirit-unrest, of soul-disturbance, of any ruffling of
the Spirit, than of earthquake or fire or any outside forces.
Now let us apply the above revelation in a manner wherein we can
uncover one of
satan's oldest tricks: Causing... Spirit-unrest,
soul-disturbance, and the ruffling of the Spirit.
Picture this... at any time, on any day and at any place in the planet
- We come across
someone who needs help. Our Christian spirit moves us to offer, and
then try to provide, the help needed.
Then... we find resistance from the individual needing help. We get
mixed signals from her/him which, in our "programmed by satan"
confusion, do not let us identify the snare clearly and we continue
to try to help.
No matter "how much God" is in us - if the individual is resisting the
help, she/he is hindering the Power of God, therefore, the solution of
problem at hand.
What is the result? We fall into a state of Spirit-unrest, soul-disturbance, and the
ruffling of the Spirit.
What to do? Walk away!
We will illustrate the above using an easy to relate to parable.
1. You see a person drowning. You jump
into the water in an attempt to save that individual.
2. The individual is agitated and forcefully resists your efforts to
save him from
drowning and you are not able to subdue him.
3. Now, you are in danger of drowning too.
What to do?
Swim away wile praying for the soul of
the one who is about to die and who almost caused your death too.
1. You see a person drowning. You jump
into the water in an attempt to save that individual.
2. The individual is agitated yet, in spite of the panic, he is fully
cooperating with your efforts to save him.
3. The conditions are such that the choice becomes clear - only one
life will be saved: yours or that of the drowning victim.
What to do?
Offer your life to God so that the
individual that He placed in
your path lives; then, let the final outcome be in accordance to
It is really that simple... once one has an ongoing close relationship
with God, of course.
Did you hear about....
the school Principal who was fatally hit by bus as she pushed kids out
of way of a run away school bus? (1)
An Indianapolis elementary school
principal - Susan Jordan - was seen pushing several students out of the
way an oncoming bus before the vehicle fatally struck her, authorities
said Tuesday, January 26th.
The female bus driver told firefighters she was not sure what caused
the bus to accelerate,.... she also said "in the instant that the
accident occurred" she saw Jordan push several students out of the way,
according to the statement.
"This is a great example of an educational leader in our state and our

The initial post was already planned for today, and then, we came
across the above news about an exemplary event which happened on the
same day we were prompted to compose today's post.
Let us pray: Eternal rest, grant

from Creation)) as the homeland for the Jewish people?

divine encouragements that you post (especially over the past few days)
have been of great consolation to me.... .... the additional
insight you provided for the 1/27/16 Divine Encouragement (1) was truly a gift from God as I try to
love and help those around me
While at confession this past First Saturday I was sharing with the
priest that I feel that.... in some ways ...I was failing at the work
that God had given me. Without missing a beat the priest said that all
missionary work is filled with frustration and sorrow, but that it's
also filled with great joy and consolation. After rereading Paul's
letters I can see that this is absolutely true. I was grateful for God
working through the priest in the confessional.
Lee Penn's response
(2) to the
warnings that you had sent out (3)
and which you reposted on 1/14/16 was helpful in reminding me that
Christ has been guiding me down a path of spiritual preparation (points
7, 8 & 12) over the past 15 years to be prepared for what God has
willed for the world. Sometimes I lose sight of that.
Again thank you for all that you do
in His name and please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
First of all we are very happy that you continue to take advantage of
the great Sacrament of Reconciliation and continue to observe the
First Saturday of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is
most pleasing to God; a
pleasure manifested, this time, by His placing in the confessional the
to transmit to you His consoling message.
Your confessor, as Paul confirmed to you, was indeed right. We could
also attest to the fact that "all missionary work
is filled with frustration and sorrow, but that it's also filled with
great joy and consolation".
The very difficult part is to balance the level of frustration and sorrow with the great joy and consolation lest one
throws in the towel in frustration. Only God can make that balance
Although, as you know, downloads from our Domains are at the 1,250,000
four-page-equivalent documents per month, we see, from the
minute feedback that
we receive from the very small number of recipients of our
mailings, that most of the material is "sped read", thus, the core of
the message is missed. That is indeed a fountain of plentiful frustration and sorrow.
Occasionally we receive a letter like yours which clearly indicate that
you do not speed read the material but instead digest it and put it to
Excerpt "Two" highlights the fact that, in spite of your humanity ("Sometimes I lose sight of that"),
you regain "the proper sight" because
of carefully reading and meditating the material that we mail to
our list and publish otherwise.... and that brings great joy and consolation.
Your continued prayerful support continues to be greatly appreciated.

Russia is promoting the idea that it has replaced Rome as the Center of
no time in history has the persecution of Christians been as intense
and widespread as it is now.
Christians in the Middle East are
in dire need of a champion, which, in today’s world can only be a great
power, and it is Russia that has taken on that responsibility.
With its secular ideology, the West
can no longer protect Christian interests in the world as it did for
centuries. Although the USA
has a higher percentage of church goers than other Western countries,
it underestimates the importance of religion in the countries it
targets for regime change. Turning a blind eye to beheadings, child
rape and other atrocities, it has created a hell on earth for
Christians all over the Middle East.
And with the Arab Spring,
things went from bad to worse, as ISIS’
success in Iraq inspired similar groups. The Muslim Brotherhood in
Egypt, Boko Haram in Nigeria and Al-Shabaab in Somalia are all
committing atrocities against Christians.
President Putin is
convinced that spirituality has a profound
effect on the way a culture develops, providing an indispensable moral
compass that goes deeper than passing political expediency and secular
numbers of Christians across
the spectrum turn
toward Russia, its global influence can only grow.
All continues to fall in its place for the Grand Finale. The "frustration and sorrow", from this
and similar situations, is that most, on a global scale, cannot see
it. The great "joy and
consolation" comes from the awareness that we have not failed
God, since those who will survive the Tribulations will indeed be
