Do you know what.... Our Lord Jesus Christ meant when He complained to Lucia (of Fatima) some time after June 1929 when He said....?

"They did not wish to heed my request!... Like the King of France, they will repent an do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars, and persecutions of the Church: the Holy Father will have much to suffer."

Actually, very few people do because, in some versions of that Appendix of Lucia's memoirs, an error was made and it tells the reader that it was the Virgin Mary who said that when it was really Our Lord Jesus Christ.

This is what Our Lord Jesus Christ was referring to:

In 1689, one year before her death, Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque tried by various ways and means to reach the 'Sun King', Louis XIV of France, with a message from the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with four requests: to engrave the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the royal flags; to build a temple in His honour where He would receive the homage of the Court: the King was to make his consecration to the Sacred Heart; and he should pledge his authority before the Holy See to obtain a Mass in honour of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

However, nothing was achieved. It seems that this message never even came to the knowledge of the King.

Only a century later, the royal family would respond, in the measure possible, to this message. Louis XVI, in 1792, conceived the idea of his vow to the Heart of Jesus, but he could only carry it out in the Temple prison, promising to fulfill all the requests communicated by St. Margaret Mary, after his liberation. But, for Divine Providence it was now late: Louis XVI was guillotined on 21 January 1793. (1)

It is very important to take careful note of this since it again confirms what we keep repeating:

We cannot count on a last minute Act of Mercy if we do not act upon Heaven's requests to avoid calamities.

Did you know that.... a team of the University of Arizona (UA) has developed a new type of "holographic telepresence" that allows remote projection of a three-dimensional, moving image without the need for special eyewear such as 3D glasses or other auxiliary devices? (1)

The technology is likely to take applications ranging from telemedicine, advertising, updatable 3D maps and entertainment to a new level.

"Holographic telepresence means we can record a three-dimensional image in one location and show it in another location, in real-time, anywhere in the world," said Peyghambarian, who led the research effort.

Therefore, allow us a reminder...

We know that there still is a question regarding the "made to order False Christ candidate" - Mr. X - that  is shared by many. Considering that Mr. X could very well be Steven Frayne, a.k.a. "DYNAMO, Magician Impossible" (1), the question is:
Why is he not a household word yet considering that he has performed such beyond-Biblical miraculous feats for a variety of individuals (from street people all the way to billionaires) in many public, by-invitation-only events and strictly private places of the world, with audiences totaling over one billion spectators?

The answer is quite simple: The time has not come yet although the technology for his instantaneous world-wide promotion now exists.

Imagine that if, after literally walking on water or levitating at will, the Vatican or the Maitreya promoter or the New Age Movement spokesperson would announce that Steven Frayne, for whom most everything has been obviously possible, is the expected Messiah, there will be a "meltdown" of Twitter and Facebook accounts, e-mails, YouTube videos, and every news outlet in the world, and now, "live" simultaneous worldwide performances courtesy of the new 3-D life-like hologram.

That is why Steven Frayne could become a household world - from Dubai to Singapore, from the Iceland to the Patagonia - in 24 hours if he has the endorsement of the "official faces" of the world.

Since the manifestation of the False Messiah will take place only when the world is just about to cross the threshold of the End of These Times, and that is determined by God, only at that time, whomever is who will play the lead role of that demonic farce, will be presented to the world.

Do you know....  which are the ten questions that God will not ask any of us at the Time of Judgment?

These are the ones!

This Power Point Presentation may look like "light fare" but it is so "heavy" that its understanding and application by the world will tip the scales - one way or another - when God determines what has been the true yield of our journey through Time and the just reward.

On yesterday's Divine Encouragement..... we commented:

When we "look", we "see" and when we truly "see" Him, we will turn to Him and make "a connection". That is the connection needed to lead us in the path to Salvation.

There is no automatic salvation after one religious experience - a one time encounter - which many may call being "born again".

When a true connection is made, one does not want to let it go!

In the spiritual domain, the equivalent of  "still born" or the "crib death", also exists. If after that encounter, that look, we do not turn to Him, salvation will notautomatically follow.

We suggest pondering upon those words using as a backdrop the following explanation given by Jesus to His disciples:

Behold the sower went forth to sow. And whilst he soweth some fell by the way side, and the birds of the air came and ate them up. And other some fell upon stony ground, where they had not much earth: and they sprung up immediately, because they had no deepness of earth.

And when the sun was up they were scorched: and because they had not root, they withered away. And others fell among thorns: and the thorns grew up and choked them. And others fell upon good ground: and they brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, and some thirtyfold. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. [Matthew 13:3-9]

We will not connect-the-dots of what we commented with the Scriptures because, just as He said: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Did you know that.... two nuclear commanders fired and another disciplined? (1)

The Air Force on Monday fired two more nuclear commanders and disciplined a third, fresh evidence of leadership lapses in a nuclear missile corps that has suffered a rash of recent setbacks, including the firing last year of its top commander.

The most senior officer to be relieved Monday was Col. Carl Jones, the No. 2 commander of the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, in charge of 150 of the Air Force's 450 Minuteman 3 nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles. He was dismissed "for a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership abilities," ...

Last March nine officers were fired at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, which is the third of the three nuclear missile bases, in response to an exam-cheating scandal there. Last year, Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, commander of the entire ICBM force, was fired after an investigation into a drinking binge and other misconduct while he was in Russia as head of a visiting U.S. government delegation.

miguel de Portugal comments: We are the best without question. With that said, then imagine how "secure" are the nuclear arsenals of the other nuclear powers.

This is just another reminder that our ONLY security is that provided by God!

Did you know that.... Gorbachev will use the festivities of the fall of the Berlin to back/endorse/promote President Putin? (1)
[our highlights]

Berlin is preparing to welcome a host of politicians on Sunday for the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall.

Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev said in an interview with the Interfax news agency that he would seek to protect Russia and its president when he meets EU leaders and public figures.

In what are seen as some of his most explicit comments endorsing Putin's policies, the 83-year-old said the Ukraine crisis provided an "excuse" for the US to pick on Russia.

miguel de Portugal comments: If you have read what we have published about Gorbachev years ago, you should not be surprised since this is a classic "right on schedule" event.

but as it that were not enough.....

Turkey's President warns Israel and the world of "new intifada". (1)
[our highlights]

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned that Israel's offensive on the al-Aqsa Mosque may pave the way for a "new intifada" leading to troubles that might spread across the world and not be limited to the Middle East.

Last week, Israel closed the al-Aqsa compound amid increasing tensions between Israelis and Palestinians. Access is now allowed but males under 50 are banned.

"This barbaric, hostile action of Israel is unforgivable and regarding these events we cannot be silent," said Erdogan. "We have to take all necessary steps at an international level."

miguel de Portugal comments: For those who think that, because Turkey is a member of NATO, Turkey is an ally of the U.S. - Wake up and smell the coffee!

Reporting from first hand experiences (2003 vintage)..... To enter Turkey one buys the "visa" at the airport in Istanbul. This "visa" is just an entry tax which sounds better when called a "visa". Citizens of the European Union pay 10 Euro (about 12.5 USD at current rates) for the "visa"; U.S. citizens pay 90 US dollars for the "visa" - eight times what Europeans pay!.

Also, keep in mind that Turkey watched impassible as the ISIL maniacs murdered men, women and children just across for their border in Syria and did not lift a finger to stop that human slaughter.

With friends, neighbors and allies like that, who need enemies!

Did you know that.... the pillars of US nuclear arsenal are showing cracks? (1)

The cracks appear not just in the military forces equipped with nuclear weapons but also in the civilian bureaucracy that controls them,....

It's not clear that the government recognizes the full scope of the problem,.... Nor has it aroused the public, which may think nuclear weapons are relics of the past, if it thinks about them at all.

This is not mainly about the safety of today's weapons, although the Air Force's nuclear missile corps has suffered failures in discipline, training, morale and leadership over the past two years.

Rather, this is about a broader problem: The erosion of the government's ability to manage and sustain its nuclear "enterprise," the intricate network of machines, brains and organizations that enables America to call itself a nuclear superpower.

The slippage is in certain key building blocks - technical expertise, modern facilities and executive oversight on the civilian side, and discipline, morale and accountability on the military side.

The shortfalls are compounded by tight budgets and uneven political support. In the absence of a headline-grabbing nuclear accident in recent decades and receding fears of nuclear war, these problems have generally gone unnoticed.

miguel de Portugal comments: And Mr. Putin is counting on all of that!

Did you know that.... Obamacare architect admits Obama lied about his signature law?

One of the main creators of President Barack Obama's "signature legislation," the Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACU) a/k/a Obamacare, admitted to colleagues at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that Obama and he lied to the American people.

Dr. Jonathan Gruber, who appeared on national television selling Obamacare to Americans conceded that in order to gain support for a government takeover of healthcare insurance and distribution it was necessary to avoid transparency, according to officials with a public-interest group who discovered the YouTube video of that professor's comments and released it on Monday.

miguel de Portugal comments: We wonder if Mr. Obama knows that, for all practical purposes, his presidency is really over. After the recent election results and this indisputable revelation, he might as well resign and go play golf for a while.

From miguel de Portugal

A new document: Understanding the Ways of God As Manifested In Human Suffering - We cannot make it any clearer - has been published.

Brethren - we really cannot make it any clearer. We wash our hands from any responsibility resulting from humanity ignoring the well document exhortations that we have made for the last twenty-three years and which, through the Grace of God, have been available to all (1) on-line for sixteen years.

All that He expects us to do now is to assist the Elect in "putting into practice what we have preached" for the last twenty-three years - and nothing else!

How else are we to do that? I will know when He lets me know.
(1) Before then it was made available to world leaders: Ecclesiastic and Political.

Do you remember that..... on November 24th, 2006, we published a document titled: satan's Coup d'Etat or How Well he Has Covered All the Bases?

In said document (1) we stated:

The problem is the proliferation of sodomy.

As God showed m de P, the act of sodomy actually triggers a spiritual mechanism which degrades the soul in a most severe manner. We will not go into the mechanics of that degradation.... .... its reality to m de P is now as concrete as the reality of the force of gravity.


For decades satan has been promoting the buttocks of a woman as "a most desirable" sexual object. From then, he proceeded to, through the proliferation of pornography, to entice men and women to engage in anal intercourse.

On November 11th, 2014, God clearly confirmed the validity of our warning through the following news report (2):

Businesses cash in as women chase bigger posterior.

Gym classes that promise a plump posterior are in high demand. A surgery that pumps fat into the buttocks is gaining popularity. And padded panties that give the appearance of a rounder rump are selling out.

The U.S. booty business is getting a big bump. Companies are cashing in on growing demand from women seeking the more curvaceous figures of their favorite stars, who flaunt their fuller rear ends.

Nicki Minaj, for instance, raps about her "big fat" butt in "Anaconda."

Reality star Kim Kardashian posts photos of hers on Instagram.

And in the music video for "Booty," Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea, wearing leotards, spend four minutes rubbing their curvy bottoms together. At one point, they slap each other on the booty.

Why should we shed a tear when most of this world is reduced to ashes?

I will rejoice instead because we will be witnessing the manifestation of God's promise that He was to shorten this period so that the Elect would not be lost. [Matthew 24:22-24, Mark 13:20-22]

Were you aware that.... an agency of the U.S. Justice Department is using fake cellphone towers on planes to gather data?

U.S. Marshals Service is gathering data from thousands of cell phones, including both criminal suspects and innocent Americans, by using fake communications towers on airplanes.

The program run by the U.S. Marshals Service began operations in 2007 and uses Cessna planes flying from at least five major airports and covering most of the U.S. population, the newspaper said, citing people familiar with the operations.

The planes use devices made by Boeing Co that mimic the cell phone towers used by major telecommunications companies and trick mobile phones into revealing their unique registration data, the report said.

Although it can interrupt calls on some phones, authorities have made software changes to make sure it doesn't interrupt anyone calling the 911 emergency number for help, one person familiar with the matter said, the Journal reported.

It also bypasses telephone companies, allowing authorities to locate suspects directly, people with knowledge of the program said.

miguel de Portugal's concern is: How many unofficial individuals have access to those devices made by Boeing Co.?  I suspect that such devices are probably available for purchase via the internet at some obscure semi legal e-shop.

Did you know that..... U.S. new Syria strategy to seek removal of Assad in parallel with defeat of ISIS? (1)

President Barack Obama’s national security team has been reviewing U.S. policy in Syria after concluding that any meaningful progress in the campaign against ISIS, let alone the defeat of the Islamist organization, may not be achievable without being accompanied by a plan to remove President Bashar al Assad from power.

miguel de Portugal comments: Will someone remind Washington of what happened when Arafat, Ariel Sharon, Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Hosni Mubarak, etc., etc. were removed from office?

 And then....

Will someone also ask Washington why Fidel Castro was never removed from office when he was/is a far greater threat to the world - not just the Middle East - than those listed above and has been running his worldwide terror campaign from just a "stone's throw away" from the U.S. Mainland for the last 55 years?

The number of homeless children in the U.S. has surged in recent years to an all-time high, amounting to one child in every 30, according to a comprehensive state-by-state report that blames the nation's high poverty rate, the lack of affordable housing and the impacts of pervasive domestic violence.

Some of Bergoglios' sponsors...... at the Leonine Forum, seek to shape future Catholic leaders in church teachings. (1)

In between the shelves of a Catholic bookstore, a couple dozen young professionals are sipping wine, nursing beers and talking about things like "the common good" and "natural law."

They've done this every month for about a year, each of them hand-chosen by the Catholic Information Center as young people likely to make a difference in the world and able to benefit from a firm education in Catholic social teaching on economics, government, and morality.

This is what the center calls "the Leonine Forum,"and it's serving up conversations and lectures, along with drinks and dinner, to the future Catholic elite in America.

"How we can create a society that respects (Catholic social) principles is really what the forum is all about,"said Mitch Boersma, who works for the center and who organized the forum.

The Leonine Fellows, many of them in their 20s, have impressive careers already. There are a federal prosecutor, a lawyer at giant law firm Jones Day, a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy, a policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation. But Boersma said the Leonine Forum is not a recruiting tool for Opus Dei, and several fellows said they hadn't been encouraged to join. Boersma himself is not an Opus Dei member.

Pathetic, isn't it? It actually is nauseating.

It is time that we.... refresh our memory as to the root cause of what we have seen in the Middle East since the foundation of Islam and which is coming to a climax through ISIS' brutal activities.

As you read the following excerpt from the Book of Genesis, keep in mind that Abraham was born in or about the year 2117 before Christ. That is, over 2700 years before the foundation of Islam. The Book of Genesis is believed to have been reduced to writing around the year 500 before Christ - give or take 100 years. That is, it was written over 1,000 years before the foundation of Islam. That is - what we read was not inserted by some scribe to match what had already happened and make it look like a prophecy.

This is not "just another cute Bible story". With the proper eyes we can distinctively see the root of today's world problems.

There will be some additional comments at the end.

The highlights in the Biblical text are by The M+G+R Foundation.

Hagar and Ishmael [Genesis 16]

Now Sarai, Abraham's wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar;  so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.

Abram agreed to what Sarai said.  So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife.  He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.

When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress.  Then Sarai said to Abram, “You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering. I put my slave in your arms, and now that she knows she is pregnant, she despises me. May the Lord judge between you and me.”

 “Your slave is in your hands,” Abram said. “Do with her whatever you think best.” Then Sarai mistreated Hagar; so she fled from her.

The angel of the Lord found Hagar near a spring in the desert;....  And he said, “Hagar, slave of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?”

“I'm running away from my mistress Sarai,” she answered.

Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.”  The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”

The angel of the Lord also said to her:

“You are now pregnant and you will give birth to a son.
You shall name him Ishmael, (a) for the Lord has heard of your misery.
He will be a wild donkey of a man;  his hand will be against everyone
 and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.”

So Hagar bore Abram a son, and Abram gave the name Ishmael to the son she had borne. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him Ishmael.

(a) Genesis 16: 11 - Ishmael means God hears.

miguel de Portugal comments: That was the second fall of man. Abraham did not believe what God had told him, instead, he believed Sarai - the same Adam and Eve dynamics. The only diference is that Sarai has no snake to blame, so she blames Abraham instead: You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering.

This time, being that man had already been ordered out of Paradise, a new lineage commenced composed of people who "will be too numerous to count." and who "will live in hostility toward all his brothers".

As we approach the End of These Times, should we be surprised at the meteoric rise and evils of ISIS?

We trust that the message is so clear that Daniel does not need to be consulted for an interpretation. But, just in case....

The key message is not to ignore one's wife. The key messages are:

(a) to believe in God and in His Word and  that, if He says that He Will cause something - He Will! How will He accomplish it is entirely God's business and we are not to meddle in that.


(b) What we have seen, are seeing and will see in, and from, the Middle East can be directly traced to Abram's lack of faith in the Word of God.

Did you know that.... Russia recently discovered a new asteroid? (1)

At the end of October Russian astronomers discovered a new cosmic body, which became known as asteroid 2014 UR116. It is 20 times larger than the Chelyabinsk meteorite and there is a possibility that its trajectory will shift towards Earth.

At the end of October the Russian MASTER robotic telescope complex noticed a new asteroid, 2014 UR 116. Its is 370 meters long, about 20 times bigger than the meteorite that exploded in mid-air over the city of Chelyabinsk in February 2013. The cosmic body’s trajectory will run near Venus and Mars, and there is a possibility that its path will shift towards our planet.

The asteroid was discovered by Denis Denisenko, an astronomer at Moscow State University's Astronomical Institute, who has already discovered seven supernovae and more than 50 variable stars. He spoke with RBTH about the potential threat that the asteroid poses to Earth.

Russia Beyond the Headlines (RBTH): Where and when, supposedly, can the asteroid that you've discovered hit Earth?

Denis Denisenko (DD): It's still unknown. We estimate that in the next six years it will not collide with Earth. The uncertainty of its position in space during the next encounter with Earth in October 2017 is calculated to be 1.8 million kilometers. It is also impossible to predict the asteroid's future encounter with Mars and Venus, which can substantially change its orbit.

RBTH: If it collides with Earth, will we have a chance of surviving or not?

D.D.: There is always a chance. Asteroids of this size (about 370 meters long) are capable of causing a catastrophe, but not the end of humanity. It is still impossible to predict the date or even the approximate place where 2014 UR116 might hit Earth, just like it is impossible to do so with any other dangerous asteroid.

miguel de Portugal comments: The discoverer says that "Asteroids of this size can cause a catastrophe, but not the end of humanity".

On the other hand, Putin's nuclear policies are a different story.... but thanks to God, it will not be the end of humanity.

As always - it is up to us to choose how loud will it be necessary for God to raise the volume of His megaphone to get our attention.

Do you ever wonder why.... God allowed massacres such as World War I and World War II, as well as many others in the last 1,600 years,  if we are to believe the story of Abraham and God and their conversation [Gen. 18:22-33] as God was ready to wipe out Sodom and Gomorrha from the face of the earth?

As reminder of said conversation we will quote the last few verses:

[31] Seeing, saith he, I have once begun, I will speak to my Lord. What if twenty be found there? He said: I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty. [32] I beseech thee, saith he, be not angry, Lord, if I speak yet once more: What if ten should be found there? And he said: I will not destroy it for the sake of ten. [33] And the Lord departed, after he had left speaking to Abraham: and Abraham returned to his place. [Gen. 18]

It is crystal clear that God would not destroy those cities even if there were ten just men in them. What happened then? Why did He allow upon the world so much death and misery during the last 1,600 years?

One could justifiably ask - Were there no just men in the cities and towns which were obliterated during World War II? Or is there something else that explains the apparent difference in the behavior of God?

Think about it!

What was Abraham doing throughout the entire conversation?

Abraham was appealing to the Mercy of God as he interceded for the just people who lived in Sodom and Gomorrha.

In plain English: The just people in Sodom and Gomorrha had someone interceding for them.

Published on November 27th, 2014 [Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal (Paris) and Thanksgiving Day in the US]

Do you wonder if.... Abraham's intercessory behavior, on behalf of the just in Sodom and Gomorrha, is backed by the teachings in the New Testament?

In the New Testament we see Jesus talking about violent accidental deaths as related to the level of sin of the victims. To wit:

[1] And there were present, at that very time, some that told him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. [2] And he answering, said to them: Think you that these Galileans were sinners above all the men of Galilee, because they suffered such things? [3] No, I say to you: but unless you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish. [4] Or those eighteen upon whom the tower fell in Siloe, and slew them: think you, that they also were debtors above all the men that dwelt in Jerusalem? [5] No, I say to you; but except you do penance, you shall all likewise perish. [Luke 13]

As you can see, Jesus explains that unless those He was speaking to did penance, they would meet the fate of those in Galilee and Jerusalem - who were not necessarily the greatest sinners in Galilee or Jerusalem yet they experienced a violent death.

Now then, if the people Jesus was speaking to did not know the meaning of penance, what could then save them?

If others acted - on their behalf -  as Jesus told us to:

[44] .... Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you:

[46] For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? [47] And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? [48] Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect. [Matthew 5]
God would not destroy Sodom and Gomorrha even if there were only ten just men in them because someone (Abraham) was interceding for them.

This explains why we have had 1600 years of uninterrupted human slaughter while most of the Christian world has ignored the fundamental teachings of  Jesus Christ, teachings which are also found in the Old Testament:

Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled. [Matthew 5:17-18]

While most Christians did not know the real meaning and importance of penance due to the failed Evangelization, those who knew its importance, failed to intercede and/or offer sacrifice for others for the last 1600 years.

As the last opportunity to humanity, God caused Mary to start visiting His children with unusual frequency since the early 19th century asking us for prayer and penance for ourselves and others. Her efforts were, and continue to be, mostly ignored.

Absolutely nothing has changed, yet most have no idea as to the reason for the calamities they must live through.

This is why we have no tolerance - whatsoever! - for anyone who may even hint that God is responsible for the misery in the world or claim that Christianity is a failed system.

Did you hear that..... Francis tells Europe: Get your social and spiritual house in order. (1)
Pope Francis delivered back-to-back speeches to the European Parliament and the Council of Europe that amounted to a strong call to Europe to get both its social and its spiritual house in order.

Before roughly 750 members of the European parliament, Francis bluntly said today’s world is becoming "less and less Eurocentric," that Europe often comes off as "elderly and haggard," that it’s less and less a "protagonist" in global affairs, and that the rest of the planet sometimes sees it "with mistrust and even suspicion."

miguel de Portugal comments: "The pot caling the kettle black?"

Bergoglio should be calling on European leaders to get their political house in order instead. It is organized religion the one who needs to have its social and spiritual house in order - not to mention their morals.

If the world's politcians need to have their social and spiritual house in order is because those who were entrusted by Jesus Christ - and claim to represent Him - have miserably failed in the transmission of the Good News.

Have you heard that.... a top Vatican prosecutor failed to report abuser ? (1)

The Jesuit tapped by Pope Francis to serve as the Vatican's top clergy sex abuse prosecutor failed to remove an abusive priest from ministry even after learning about that priest’s long record, The Boston Globe reported.

As the second-highest official with the Chicago Jesuits in the 1990s, the Rev. Robert J. Geisinger, SJ, was privy to documents chronicling the abuse of Rev. Donald J. McGuire, SJ, whom the Globe describes as "a globe-trotting priest with many influential supporters, including Mother Teresa of Calcutta."

A review of Church records by the Globe's Michael Rezendes shows that Geisinger had knowledge of McGuire's abuse as early as 1995, and was still making internal recommendations as late as 2002. McGuire was laicized in 2008 and he is serving a 25-year prison sentence.

The Vatican is standing by Geisinger's appointment, and defended his role in Chicago. They said Geisinger helped shepherd McGuire's case through Church courts quickly.

The "Holy See fully expects Father Geisinger to continue to do an excellent job as promoter of justice, based on his prosecution record, his commitment to justice, and his concern for victims," the Vatican said in a statement to the Globe.

miguel de Portugal comments: No one among the Elect could possibly take these jokers serious. As for the others.....

....he said to them: Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able. But when the master of the house shall be gone in, and shall shut the door, you shall begin to stand without, and knock at the door, saying: Lord, open to us. And he answering, shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are.

Then you shall begin to say: We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. And he shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are: depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. [Luke 13: 24-28]

Isn't it amazing..... that most Jews, Christians and Muslims just cannot see that their defiance of the Fundamental Divine Laws is at the root of the history of their misery throughout the centuries?

We recently saw what Abraham's faith in Sarah and not in God brought about the misery which resulted from the never ending battles between Ishmael and his descendants and Isaac and his descendants.

Now, in Genesis 27, we see Rebecca inciting her son Jacob to lie and deceive Isaac so that Jacob would get the Blessings that was rightfully Esau's. Do people think that God sits around twiddling His thumbs allowing humans to make a mockery of His Eternal Plans without any consequences?

Oh, yes.... He makes His promises good - in this case in reference to the offsprings of Abraham, Isaac, etc. - however, there was and is a very high price to pay for trying to sidestep and mock God.

This behavior is as stupid and assinine as jumping off a building and banking on beating the law of gravity. Actually it is worse. The consequences of defying natural physical laws are minor as compared with the consequences when man defies Divine Law - specially when it is done with an "In your face!" (1) attitude.

We truly wonder how many people take the Holy Texts seriously. From the state of the world for the last 3000 years, we must assume that the number is vey, very low.

Monumental mess: Rome's mayor getting thumbs down

Pigs root through garbage piling up in a working class neighborhood.

City buses improvise routes on streets clogged with triple-parked cars.

On rainy days, muck-choked sewers make crossing the road a Herculean labor.

Ignazio Marino promised to bring order to Rome's chaos when he was elected mayor in a landslide last year. Instead, critics say the liver transplant surgeon is the affliction not the cure — and are pressuring him to resign.

Even members of Marino's own Democratic Party have begun to give him the thumbs down, worried that he could damage Premier Matteo Renzi, who heads the party. Marino's office turned down interview requests for this story.

miguel de Portugal comments: Oh, yes.... the Eternal City! The city of the Dolce Vita!

When a non European lives in Europe - among the people - and not in a Five Star Hotel penthouse, reality sets in.... and it is not a pretty sight.

The grass is seldom greener on the other side of the fence. Let us always Thank God for whatever little we may have wherever we may be and not complain for what we think we do not have!

Than, folks, is what Thanksgiving is all about.

Did you hear that.... church members each got $500 to do good for world? (1)

On a very memorable Sunday, Pastor Laura Truax surprised her congregation with a bold announcement: She was about to hand out money to everyone.

LaSalle Street Church had received a tidy $1.6 million from a real estate deal, the pastor said, and $160,000 - a typical 10 percent tithe - would be divided among some 320 regular attendees. Each would get a $500 check to do something positive.

LaSalle, a non-denominational church, has long been involved in social causes, from feeding homeless families to buying an ambulance for a medical clinic in Niger.

Church members, Truax says, are doing just what she'd envisioned when she distributed the checks in September.

"I hoped that they would recognize the power they had to bless others and change somebody's life," she says. "... And that has largely happened."

miguel de Portugal comments
Will someone forward this idea to Francis, Bishop of Rome, also known as Mr. Solidarity with the poor and destitute?

There will be a Buffalo (NY) like snow storm in hell before the RCC Administration ever consider the above described exemplary Christian example.

This is something else that becomes painfully obvious when a non European lives in Europe and sees the - for all practical purposes unlimited - wealth of the Roman Catholic Church and the state of the disadvantaged on a global scale.

Once again we must highlight the question: How must God feel about that? and Does anyone think that there is not an "invoice" to be paid for such behavior?

God even sent John Bosco to show them - for 40 years - how to do it, but to no avail. Only the Elect can see and hear.

Please forgive me if I am too sensitive about this issue and highlight it frequently for your attention. The problem is that I live in it - no matter where I turn, I see the many, many shameful examples of that unlimited wealth as well as those who - for no fault of their own - need a loaf of bread and cannot even afford it!

The revulsion is great and I would be really concerned if I did not feel it!
