Second Half of September 2010
Please Note: When a communication appears on this Forum, it does not automatically imply that The M+G+R Foundation agrees with all of its contents and/or conclusions. For news visitors who are not familiar with our positions we suggest a review of the three NOTES at the end of this document.
Regarding your August 19, 2010 statement about the Warning and Miracle (events that had been announced at Garabandal) you stated, among other things:
The world is heading, without further ado, directly into the Chastisement, which was announced in Garabandal and Akita, and which we have independently confirmed several times since 1992.
During the 1990s, as I was on my way in to the Catholic Church, I learned of the prophecies
of the universal Warning, an illumination of conscience in which everyone would learn of the true
condition of their soul and the nature of their
From 1999 onward, as I began to visit your site and saw the sequence of end-time events as you laid them out,  I took it as a certainty that these miraculous, earth-shaking events would occur as prophesied by the Garabandal seers. And yet, as I understood the rest of the sequence of events, with the deceptions to be offered by the False Christ, I wondered several things:
Your recent announcement – that the Warning, Miracle, and Sign most likely will not be manifested publicly and for all mankind, as popularly expected – resolved these questions for me.
I can just see it now:
A. Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts.
The "theo-logic" you utilize is correct for that is the way God has worked with humanity since there is recorded history. To give a "face" to what we are saying, let us go back to the events at Fátima (1). Mary did not say that there was going to be a second world war, nor did She say that communism was going to essentially engulf the world. Even though Mary knew that such events were going to happen (She lives in Eternity, where all has been finished (2) ) She described those scenarios as conditional events. The conditions were left in the hands of mankind. The conditions were not fulfilled (1) and the events took place just as She described.
Let us move forward now to Garabandal. All throughout that time, the Second Vatican Council (3) was trying to bring the Imperial Church to heel - the heel of Jesus Christ (4). The Marian nature/purpose of said Council could not have been more graphically symbolized than by the gold rose Paul VI sent as a gift to Mary in Fátima (remember Rosa (Rose) Mystica (5) and the purpose of He manifestations?) and proclaiming Mary, Mother of the Church, at the end of the Council.
If the clear intent of the Second Vatican Council (the softening of the Apocalypse) had been fulfilled with John Paul I moving the Church in the new direction given by the Second Vatican Council, the events such as the Warning, Miracle and Sign announced in Garabandal, would have been made manifest to all. Instead, he was murdered, opening the doors to the antiChrist (6) and the eventual manifestation of the False Christ (7).
Anyone who has an inkling of the Divine methods and logic and is familiar with Sacred History, as revealed by the Holy Scriptures - not the Roman Catholic Church's version - would see the "theo-logic" in your evaluation and conclusions.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to address this matter for those who Eyes to See, see, and those who Have Ears to Hear, hear.

A few of the gems encountered in such survey are:
+ Atheists and agnostics average 20.9 correct answers. Jews and Mormons do about as well, averaging 20.5 and 20.3 correct answers, respectively. Protestants as a whole average 16 correct answers; Catholics as a whole, 14.7. Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons perform better than other groups on the survey even after controlling for differing levels of education.
+ On questions about Christianity – including a battery of questions about the Bible – Mormons (7.9 out of 12 right on average) and white evangelical Protestants (7.3 correct on average) show the highest levels of knowledge. Jews and atheists/agnostics stand out for their knowledge of other world religions, including Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Judaism; out of 11 such questions on the survey, Jews answer 7.9 correctly (nearly three better than the national average) and atheists/agnostics answer 7.5 correctly (2.5 better than the national average).
+ On the other hand, most Americans are able to correctly answer at least half of the survey's questions about the Bible. For example, roughly seven-in-ten (71%) know that, according to the Bible, Jesus was born in Bethlehem. More than six-in-ten (63%) correctly name Genesis as the first book of the Bible. And more than half know that the Golden Rule – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” – is not one of the Ten Commandments.
The M+G+R Foundation comments: In Cathedral-laden Europe, the results would be vastly different - much worse regarding knowledge about the Bible as well as about the history of Christianity in general, and Catholicism in particular. On the other hand, knowledge about the Roman Catholic Catechism may be high although its practice would be nil.
Do you know what.... make the Great Archangels "Great"?
Their greatest quality (in spite of the power, wisdom and beauty that God granted them) is their unwavering and unquestionable loyalty is to God.
It is interesting to note that such quality is what would make a human - any human! - "Great" too. Of course, we are talking about unwavering and unquestionable loyalty to God in action and not just talk.
Do you know when.... did the pope rule England? (1)
King John’s surrender of his realm in 1213 was symbolised by his agreement to pay an annual tribute to the pope of 1,000 marks (£666) (2). This tribute was paid, albeit irregularly, into the 1290s.
However, kings Edward I and Edward II, John’s grandson and great-grandson, found themselves increasingly at odds with the papacy, partly over their rights to collect their own taxes from the English church and also over the pope’s partisan support for the kings of France. As a result, no tribute was paid in the 30 years before 1330. The last payment ever recorded was a token £1,000 from Edward III in 1333, in expectation of papal favours.
Thereafter, although papal requests were regularly transmitted for settlement, no money was forthcoming. In 1365 parliament debated the latest papal request and concluded that John’s original surrender of the realm had been invalid since it had lacked the assent of the bishops. This marked the formal end to English recognition of the pope’s sovereignty.
(a) When John signed the instrument of surrender to Pope Innocent III, he did so at the church of the Knights Templar in Dover. (The Templars were a wealthy, powerful military order that had originated in the Crusades. They gained much wealth through moneylending, until they were violently suppressed by the Pope and the King of France in 1307-1312. (3))
(b) In June 1215, the barons of England compelled King John to accept the Magna Carta, a document that limited royal power and began to build the tradition of limited, constitutional government in England. The King reneged on the deal as soon as he could, and was backed by the Pope. Innocent III promptly annulled the "shameful and demeaning agreement, forced upon the King by violence and fear." He rejected any call for restraints on the King, saying it impaired John's dignity. The Pope saw it as an affront to the Church's authority over the King and the 'papal territories' of England and Ireland, and he released John from his oath to obey it. (4) More than seven centuries later, Pope Pius IX was saying the same as Innocent. In 1864, Pius denounced many modern ideas as errors, including: “It is lawful to refuse obedience to legitimate princes, and even to rebel against them,” and “The Roman Pontiff can, and ought to, reconcile himself, and come to terms with progress, liberalism and modern civilization.” (5)

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Considering that the loyalty of Brazil to "the Western Powers" is not a given, that Brazil, together with Turkey, tried to help Iran with the nuclear issue (and both countries were ignored by the Western Powers) and that it can be alleged that there exists a Brazilian-Bolivian-Venezuelan-Cuban "Axis of Resistance" and that Brazil will surpass Exxon's current production by 2015, we wonder how long it will be before there is "concrete proof" that Brazil is building Weapons of Mass Destruction (or an equivalent "mass threat") which would make it imperative that a regime change process commence without delay.
Although this may sound like a bit of tongue in cheek sarcasm.... it is not. The reason we indulge in it is because it really does not matter - the world will never get there.

"We're talking about unidentified flying objects, as simple as that," Salas told FoxNews.com. "They're often known as UFOs, you could call them that," he added. Salas, a former U.S. Air Force nuclear missile launch officer, will host the event along with researcher Robert Hastings, author of "UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites.
Brethren, were their announced story true, said Aliens could permanently shut down all our nuclear missile sites before we could say "Amen!" when they wanted and there is nothing (except prayer) anyone could do about it.
The Wikileaks issue and this "breaking story" could point to two possible options, among others: (a) The justification that we must increase our security - regardless of the cost in civil liberties; or (b) Setting up the stage for "A regrettable and deadly mistake" for which yet another commission will be appointed to whitewash the "mistake".

Insiders said the bulk of the £6.5 million raised so far by the Catholic Church to finance the visit came from businessmen including JCB boss Sir Anthony Bamford.
During the four-day visit, many of the donors met Benedict XVI at a series of gatherings, one of which took place just before Mass at Westminster Cathedral.
Costs for State events during the visit, including the Pope’s meeting with the Queen, were met by the taxpayer, but the Catholic Church was faced with a £10 million bill for staging religious events such as the Hyde Park prayer vigil.
The Church still needs to raise another £3.5 million to cover this bill and it is set to approach many of the donors again to see if they are prepared to make up the shortfall. (1)

With reference to the letter from m de P posted on September 26th....
I read the whole book of Amos, and saw several things:
- In 3:1, Amos prophesies “against the whole family which I brought up out of the land of Egypt” – thus making his warnings broad enough to cover all those who are, or consider themselves to be, part of the People of God.
- Amos confirms that evils are allowed by the Lord (3:6), and that he “does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (3:7).
- Only a few will be rescued from the coming devastation (3:12, 5:3)
- Most of the specific indictment pertains to oppression, injustice, and idolatry, which are pervasive.
- He warns that the “Day of the Lord” is “darkness, not light” – in other words, a Chastisement (5:18-20)
- Nevertheless, a remnant will be left, and they will enjoy peace and prosperity (9:11-15)
On re-reading Amos, I was reminded of numerous social justice sermons in the Methodist congregation I attended in 1979-1983. The book of Amos, with its denunciations of social injustice, was often part of the preaching, with the teachings applied to the US of that time.
I do have a specific question: In years past, you had said that you were, in the interest of reducing human suffering, praying for a Green Apocalypse – that is, for most of the Chastisement to come via natural disaster rather than by means of all-out nuclear war.
Does this prayer intention still hold true, or are we to expect all-out Chastisement on all fronts: total war, AND Apocalyptic-scale natural disasters together?
A. Thank you for your feedback and your question.
Nothing else has changed. We must still pray for a Green Apocalypse as a means of minimizing human suffering during the pending Tribulation, while Scriptural prophecies are fulfilled and Divine Justice is dispensed.
We must also continue to pray for a reduction of the level of suffering in the world, by means of the opening of the eyes and ears of those members of the Elect who still have closed eyes and stopped ears. The sooner they respond, the less suffering they will have to endure. As for the rest - you know their fate. Blessedly - only God knows who goes where, so we must pray in general and He will assign the merits in accordance to His Eternal Plans.
Did you know that..... the United Nations is set to appoint an obscure Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth's first contact for any aliens that may come visiting.? (1)
She is scheduled to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before - and that means the UN must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact”.
During a talk Othman gave recently to fellow scientists, she said: “The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day humankind will receive signals from extraterrestrials.
The M+G+R Foundation comments: Considering that this is one of the options of the World Masters to control the world, it is only logical that they would take such a public step. As soon as we figure out to whom we should send a Thank You! note for making our work easier (and for making what we claim in the Name of God more believable), we will do so.
Also remember that there is a Fatima angle to the UFO deception. Books have been published and conferences have been given in which it is "reliably established" that the Mary, of Fatima fame, was really an alien.

Have you heard that..... the Vatican is probing in detail a sect like group withing Regnum Christi - the lay branch of the scandal riddled Legionnaires of Christ? (1)
But the cult-like conditions they endure so alarmed Pope Benedict XVI that in May he ordered an extremely rare full Vatican investigation of the obscure group, which operates in the U.S., Mexico, Spain, the Philippines and a dozen other countries. The inquiry is expected to begin in the coming weeks.
The alleged abuses came to light during an eight-month Vatican investigation into the Legionaries of Christ, a secretive religious order beloved by Pope John Paul II but now discredited because of revelations that its charismatic founder sexually abused seminarians and fathered at least three children.
The women belong to the order's lay wing, Regnum Christi, a global community of some 70,000 Catholics in more than 30 countries who have families and regular jobs yet participate in the mission of bringing people closer to Christ.

Did you know that..... Gruner's Fatima Crusader promotes the concept that "the real" Third Part of the Secret of Fatima included warnings against the Second Vatican Council and the Novus Ordo Mass? (1)
The M+G+R Foundation comments: We wish to remind our readers what we have stated about the Second Vatican Council (2), the real Third Part of the Secret of Fatima (3) and the Official Lie (4).
It seems that the "Fatima ink keeps running". Just a year after a "new and improved" movie about Fatima was promoted and released by Ignatius Press, they are releasing yet another one. (5) We presume that this one will be a "new and further improved" version. This whole Fatima affair has turned into the alleged "Gift that keeps on giving".

(6) It just could not get any worse and it will not get any better. Why do "they" keep manufacturing stories?
A key part of my (1) function (2) is to allow God to work through me to reduce the suffering in the world as its population navigates through the end of These Times. This is accomplished - in accordance to the Will of God (and not by my imagination, intentions, desires or will) - through prayers as well as by providing information to individuals (through these pages) and to world leaders, through direct correspondence as well as through these pages.
Within the last several months - but with more intensity in the last month - Heaven has been stormed with prayers seeking catastrophic events throughout the planet with a minimum human loss but enormous supernatural displays. The purpose of these petitions was that - on a net basis - overall human suffering would be reduced in the world. The quicker people react and recognize the times that we are living through, the quicker they "will fall in line" thus reducing the need for greater increases in the volume of the megaphone that God uses for the deaf to hear (3).
Sometimes the prayers are very specific and sometimes general, but always deferring to the Will of God. He has generously responded on a worldwide scale... but the people have not. Last Sunday - September 20th - as we were winding down another week of intense prayer and were preparing for Mass I received what I would call "The Final Response from God".
According to the Roman Missal, the first reading for September 20th was from the prophet Amos; specifically Amos 8: 4-7. As we were marking the readings in the Bible, through an obvious act of providence, I ended up in another part of the Book of Amos. The preparations were stopped and I started to read it. The verses, obviously led to by God, follows:
 I struck you with a burning wind, and with mildew, the palmerworm hath eaten up your many gardens, and your vineyards: your olive groves, and fig groves: yet you returned not to me, saith the Lord.  I sent death upon you in the way of Egypt, I slew your young men with the sword, even to the captivity of your horses: and I made the stench of your camp to come up into your nostrils: yet you returned not to me, saith the Lord.
 I destroyed some of you, as God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrha, and you were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet you returned not to me, saith the Lord.  Therefore I will do these things to thee, O Israel: and after I shall have done these things to thee, be prepared to meet thy God, O Israel. [Amos 4]
If you wish to read what He meant - and now means - by "I will do these things to thee, O Israel..." read from Chapter 5 on.
I have been accustomed to interact with God on a daily basis for years, and since He obviously led me to the above quoted reading at the appropriate time, I have no doubt that such is His response. Therefore, no more prayers will be offered for the intention described in the second paragraph of this communication. It is futile.
If someone does not understand what we have expressed above - let me know and we will try again.

According to the original account, the soldiers took them to Misión San Pedro y Pablo for interrogation. One Russian source states that after being taken prisoner near modern Los Angeles, the captives were taken to Mission Dolores — that is, modern San Francisco. With threats of torture, the Roman Catholic priests attempted to force the Aleuts to deny their Orthodox faith and to convert to Roman Catholicism.
When the Aleuts refused, the priest had a toe severed from each of Peter's feet. Peter still refused to renounce his faith and the Spanish priest ordered a group of Native Americans, indigenous to California, to cut off each finger of Peter's hands, one joint at a time, finally removing both his hands.
They eventually disemboweled him, making him a martyr to the Eastern Orthodox faith. They were about to torture the next Aleut when orders were received to release them.
This seemingly dormant brand of alleged "Christianity" is what has placed the Jewish community on alert.

Did you know that... ...the word "sibyl" comes from the Greek word originally meaning prophetess? (1)
From the early Renaissance, the Sibyls were represented in publicly available art. Michelangelo fixed our image of the sibyls forever, in his powerful representations of them, seated, both aged and ageless, beyond mere femininity, in the frescos of the Sistine Chapel.
Five sibyls were painted on the Sistine Chapel ceiling by Michelangelo; the Delphic Sibyl, Libyan Sibyl, Persian Sibyl, Cumaean Sibyl and the Erythraean Sibyl. The library of Pope Julius II in the Vatican has images of sibyls and they are in the pavement of the Siena Cathedral.
Like prophets, Renaissance sibyls forecasting the advent of Christ appear in monuments: modelled by Giacomo della Porta in the Santa Casa at Loreto, painted by Raphael in Santa Maria della Pace, by Pinturicchio in the Borgia apartments of the Vatican, engraved by Baccio Baldini, a contemporary of Botticelli, and graffites by Matteo di Giovanni in the pavement of the Duomo of Siena.
The 19th century French historian Jules Michelet attributed the origins of European witchcraft to the religion of the sibyls. In his introduction to La Sorcière (1862), Michelet wrote:
The M+G+R Foundation comments: There is no doubt whatsoever how ingrained was the cult of the Sibyls in the Imperial Church. Now, take a look at what the Holy Scriptures say about Magic - Idols and Idolatry - Witchcraft - Divination - False Christians - Disordered Eucharistic Celebrations (2)
H.H. Paul VI had no idea how encompassing and far reaching were his words when he stated: Referring to the situation of the Church today, the Pope says that he has the feeling that "from some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." (3)
That "fissure" was (and is) the Imperial arrogance carefully hidden under a thick veil of (false) piety. A fissure which, with the advent of Escriva, has turned into an ever widening crack.

Regarding the material in your recent document about Joseph in Egypt (1) ......
Here is another interesting angle to that story.
Joseph was 30 years old when he was commissioned by the Pharaoh to be the "savior" of the people. In Genesis 41:46 we read:
Jesus was also 30 years of age at the start of his public ministry. In Luke 3: 21-24 we read:
Are we being given a hint that the false christ will be 30 years of age?
Even if not, there may be some other "news" hidden in this information about the respective ages of Joseph and Jesus.
A. Time will tell. In the meantime we can say that statistically it cannot be just a coincidence.

I do not remember when I started reading your web site but I can tell you that your concept of the Most Holy Trinity is now used in at least three Catholic churches in my Diocese.
For the past three years I have heard sermons on it. I know that it was because of an email I sent with your explanation of this concept. It has also been used in Phoenix, AZ, as well as at least in one other city. Who knows how many more.

I continue to enjoy all that you do.
A. Thank you for a very special gift on a very special day.
We take this opportunity to highlight the above example of how can those who visit our pages can be an integral part of this work by getting the information out to those who have Ears to Hear and Eyes to See.
From (Mr.) SB @ US
After reading your recent message about Divine Coherence (posting of September 20th), I wondered to myself; "To Whom should I pray?"
Should I seek this with my Rosary and pray to Mary? Should I pray to Jesus who tells me to pray in His name? Or should I pray to the Father in the Name of Jesus?
I am not trying to be funny, or critical. I am so very confused. You once said I was obviously one of the elect, but I am so very lost.
A. You - as many hundred of millions of Christians - are suffering from a malaise for which we will now coin a name: Post Failed Evangelization Syndrome (PFES). Actually it is a miracle that the level of confusion is not greater.
Let us start with the prayers to our true Heavenly Mother - Mary. As we have said more times than we could count: Nothing happens in the Universe unless God allows it. Notice - we did not say "Mary allows it" - we say and mean "God allows it". As we have also said many times, the power of Mary (1) lies in the fact that the Most Holy Trinity (2) - Her Father, Her Son and Her Spouse (the Holy Spirit) - will deny Their perfect and devoted Daughter, Mother and Spouse - Mary - nothing. It is really that simple.
Even when Her yet to be Glorified Son, in the flesh, was not about to resolve the shortage of wine at the wedding Feast of Cana, [John 2: 1-11] He did it simply because She asked Him. Of course - She would never ask for anything that would be contrary to the Will of God; therefore, we can be assured that "What Mary asks, Mary gets!" Again.... It is really that simple.
Therefore, we pray to Her so that She may intercede on our behalf - an act which is commonly known amongst humans as: "Putting in a good word for us with God."
Regarding the praying to Jesus and/or the Father..... First we must have very clear the fact that: Do you not believe, that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak to you, I speak not of myself. But the Father who abideth in me, he doth the works. [John 14:10]
Jesus is of the same Substance as the Father - God - but, from a human point of view it is more effective to Pray to the Father in His Name because we can focus better - not because it is intrinsically better. In either case, we are praying to God.
The way those suffering from PFES pray, they cannot focus well because in one line they think they are praying to Jesus and in the next line they think that they are praying to the Father and somehow "God got lost in the shuffle" - as the saying goes.
Feel guilty about? Think that you are going to the Father "behind Jesus back"? Relax..... This is what He said:
In that day you shall ask in my name; and I say not to you, that I will ask the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again I leave the world, and I go to the Father. [John 16: 23-28]
The key is: To always ask or do whatever it is in His (Jesus') Name. Take a look (3) at what comes up when you search the New Testament using the following words "in my Name".
We thank you for this great opportunity to clarify this issue and hope that we have clarified these points to everyone's satisfaction.

Did you know that... on October 14, 1990, an asteroid was discovered and named 8661 Ratzinger in honor of Cardinal Ratzinger? (1)
However - it seems that it was not named "Ratzinger" initially, since in the explanation of why it was given that name we read:
Ratzinger's positive gesture toward medieval scientists came eight years after the asteroid 8661 Ratzinger was discovered.
In any case - It is interesting to note the number assigned to it. An "8" which is one short of a "novena" and "661" which can be rearranged to "616", the alternate number to "666" (2).

There have been - and are - false messiahs. The two highest profiled ones these days are: Rev. and Mrs. Moon (2) and the ever elusive Maitreya (3). This is because the word "messiah" means "Savior" and many have come and will come with the announced intent of Saving the World.
The difference is that the False Christ is a man who will present himself as Jesus Christ in His Second coming. This apparently subtle difference will mean the difference between eternal life and death for many, thus we thought it wise to clearly explain it so that we may continue to sleep in peace.

Have you heard that... the Vatican bank chief, Gotti Tedeschi, is being investigated over money laundering claims? (1)
The head of the Vatican bank has formally been placed under investigation in an inquiry into a suspected violation of Italy's money-laundering laws, judicial sources said today.
At the same time, a judge in Rome ordered a freeze on €23m (~ 30 million US dollars) held in an account opened by the Vatican bank, the Institute for the Works of Religion (IOR), at another financial institution in the Italian capital. It was thought to be the first time such action had been authorised against the IOR in Italy.
In addition..... (2) Gotti Tedeschi was Pope Benedicts's choice to lead the Vatican's Istituto per le Opere di Religione ("Institute for Religious Works," commonly known as the Vatican bank). Also under investigation is Gotti Tedeschi's "number two," the bank's director general, Paolo Cipriani.
Gotti Tedeschi, a devout Catholic and a member of the Prelature of Opus Dei, has taught financial ethics at the Catholic University of Milan. He is a close adviser to Italy's Treasury Minister, Giulio Tremonti.

One day I ran into a priest in the parish hall who was unfamiliar to our parish. I inquired as to his name and reason for being there as part of my function as a receptionist. I identified myself as an employee of the parish and spoke to him in a polite manner. He barely mumbled a response. My queries were the typical questions one would ask of a visiting priest: name; purpose of your visit; home parish; and, since it was appropriate in this case, I asked him what was the Newman Club?
My memory is that he essentially refused to identify himself clearly. I had no clue of his name. It was as if I was some completely foreign entity, to whom he owed no explanation.
Some hurried inquiry back at the rectory confirmed that he was indeed supposed to be there and was holding meetings of this 'Newman Club' (1,1a) for students in a local university. On other occasions that I would run into him and attempt to politely engage him in conversation, he would ignore me as if I were a flea. The student members of this club (fewer than 10) exhibited a similar behavior. Even though I was an employee of the parish, to them I was a ghost. They would not speak or in any way interact with me. I found this very strange. Equally strange, I could not find out what the 'club' was about.
They would speak in hushed tones, whether the door to their meeting room was open or closed. All of them seemed to be very well dressed and serious. I also noticed that the room, used exclusively by them, kept magically acquiring rather pricey furnishings. I had no clue where it came from, but it was all new and expensive. The whole scenario had the air of elitism; as if it were a subset of some high powered secret society.
Fast forward many years... I became aware of the connection between Newman Clubs on (or near) college campuses, and Opus Dei. Two priests who are prime examples of this connection are Fr. C.John McCloskey III, and Fr.George William Rutler (2a, 2b, 2c). Both from NYC, with very strong links to Wall Street and the colleges (4) linked to the club I stumbled over.
How exactly do you keep the Newman Club at New York University a virtual 'secret', when it has existed since 1894? (5)
Fr.John McGuire, O.P. who is in charge of this 'campus ministry'/parish in NYC has some interesting connections; for example, to the Orders of the House of Savoy (6), which just a tad Fascist, and has overt ties to the Order of St.Michael of the Wing (7). He is also a key chaplain of the Knights of Malta (8).
"....As Father Rutler is also a Priest of Opus Dei (specifically of the Priestly Society of the Holy Cross)..."
A Google search of 'George Rutler Cardinal Newman' will yield many results showing Rutler as heavily promoting Newman.
(4) McCloskey is well known for having been involved in Newman Center activities, especially at Princeton University. Rutler was at one time the Catholic chaplain to New York University, from which he holds a Ph.D.in Psychology.
We do, we really do!

Good morning !
If I might voice my opinion on the Most Blessed Trinity, if possible would you respond to any errors in my thoughts.
I believe that God the Father sent His First born SON to incarnate in Mary, Our Blessed Mother, and He became Jesus.
He, Teacher among us, His people, suffered and died on the cross and with His most Precious Blood washed clean our souls that we may become heirs to the Kingdom of God and that all souls would return to His Father.
Jesus is the Ransom for our salvation, Our Redeemer.
In Jesus, I remain gratefully yours
Now, regarding the qualifiers mentioned above. Jesus, through His Death and Resurrection opened the doors to Paradise, but an "open door" does not mean "a pass to Paradise". His Precious Blood indeed washed clean the souls who are His - not everyone's soul. Every soul had and has the opportunity; the question is: Was that opportunity taken advantage of?
Salvation is not an automatic process. Many people think that: "I have been born again!", "I accept Jesus as my Savior!" and "I am saved!".... in the meantime, "I'll sin until I drop from exhaustion, after all He Is Merciful, isn't He?"
The long term Purgatory guests and permanent Hell residents are many because they ascribed to such a permissive logic. Why do you think Jesus warned us about that so many times?
There are so many Biblical quotes that support the fact that Salvation is not an automatic process that they would fill several pages. However, the fundamental one is: Who are the members of Jesus' family and what is their future?
with the full qualifier of.....
He covered that quite nicely too. Remember the vineyard workers that He hired for the last hour?
We just want to make sure that there are no surprises. Even with God there are no "free lunches". There are feast with prepared fatted calf [Luke 15:27], yes, but that was not a "free lunch" - it was paid for when the honored guest made the following statement and commitment:
Thank you for the opportunity to celebrate the Feast Day of Matthew in this manner.
(1) The Secret Concept of the Most Holy Trinity
All the while Benedict was..... making effusive apologies to those abused by members of the clergy who, in turn, were protected by the Bishops (the alleged successors of the Apostles), we read: (1)
Just a few months ago, our group “outed” two predator priests in Bishop Sartain’s Joliet diocese. He knew of the allegations for at least five months but kept kids at risk by staying silent.
Sartain violated the official US bishops abuse policy which mandates that credibly accused predator priests be suspended promptly.
A brave victim reported the crimes to Sartain’s top staffers in January 2010. Five months later, however, neither Sartain nor his staff took action against the two predator priests. The worried and frustrated victim contacted us and we disclosed the allegations. Finally, Sartain temporarily suspended the child molesting clerics.
The M+G+R Foundation comments: What should we expect from the man who holds the office of the Anti Christ? (2) After all, satan is the master of duplicity and deceit.
Just think about all the souls that he is going to drag with him.... which brings to mind the final message (3) of Our Lady of Mount Carmel at Garabandal:

We shall discuss today the proverbial large white elephant with pink polka dots who sits right in the middle of Christian living rooms, yet is mostly ignored. The reason for ignoring what is blatantly obvious is that to acknowledge it without Light from above would either disprove the validity of the New Testament, or would undercut the almost supernatural importance ascribed to the Twelve Disciples.
We speak of the Parable of the Sower which appears almost exactly in three Gospels - Matthew 13: 3-23, Mark 4: 3-20 and Luke 8: 5-15. The parable, of course is flawless and so are its translations to at least three languages that we have checked. The "large white elephant with pink polka dots" is the conversation of Jesus with His Apostles regarding the parable.
Although you may look at the exact parable from the link that we provide (1) we will summarize the very thorny (apparent) problem using actual (and typical) quotes:
(b) In each case Jesus responds something like: I speak to them in parables: because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
(c) In each case Jesus must explain the parable in detail to his disciples because, obviously, they did not get it either. In one of the Gospels Jesus was clear about this: Are you ignorant of this parable? and how shall you know all parables?
(d) Although He has explained the reason why some do not understand: For the heart of this people is grown gross, and with their ears they have been dull of hearing, and their eyes they have shut: lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
Through the Grace of God, I know understand what I have lived for a quarter of a century and it is His Will that we share it with you. The "key" lies in the following quotes:
Therefore I say unto you, all things, whatsoever you ask when ye pray, believe that you shall receive; and they shall come unto you.
Hitherto you have not asked any thing in my name. Ask, and you shall receive; that your joy may be full.
And in all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.
Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
And I say to you, Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
Whatever mystery that His children may encounter in the Holy Scriptures or in just living life and pondering about God's magnificent creation, will be revealed by God - in the measure the particular individual is able to handle it spiritually and emotionally - upon Asking Him and/or Knocking at His door.
Do notice that His disciples asked Him about the meaning of the parable.
The first time that such reality (the power of Ask and Knock) occurred (that is engraved in my soul) was when He revealed to me the Secret Concept of the Most Holy Trinity (2) in the late eighties.
While a guest at a lecture given by a dear friend and priest professor of theology I witnessed how he tried to explain the concept of the Trinity utilizing the only information the Church had up to then - precious little, we must say. The students continued to grill him with legitimate questions and, the more he tried to explain what was not known yet, the worse the situation got. I felt great sorrow for the poor priest as well as for the students who were, in sincerity but relentlessly, "Asking" and "Knocking". In the midst of this tide of sorrow, and with the desire to help this situation if I could, their questions resonated in my soul and then - in a literal flash - I became completely aware of the Secret Concept of the Holy Trinity. (2)
Once again, I Glorify God for making it possible to openly discuss the proverbial large white elephant with pink polka dots (who sits right in the middle of Christian living rooms), in a manner which will strengthen the validity and coherence (3) of the Sacred Scriptures and the faith of those who have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear.

From (Mr.) IW @ US
[Note from The M+G+R Foundation: We had never heard of Mr. IW, a 66-year old gentleman, until February 2010. He informed us that he used the "800 number we publish to connect with God" and, whenever he had difficulty "establishing and keeping the conversation going" or "dialing the number" our publications helped him to "stay connected to God" and to strengthen the "connection".
His situation was little short of abysmal - many would have called it hopeless. However, Mr. IW kept on dialing "that 800 number" and believing that the God we present is indeed real, that His Word is indeed trustworthy and the Sacraments are indeed a precious treasure. He believed "until it hurt", as the saying goes.
The letter below - which we have edited to reduce its length - is a living testimony that with God - even the impossible Is Possible. ]
I did not think I would ever return to working again after becoming afflicted with chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia (CFS). After working as an overnight delivery/trucker for about 6 years on a fourteen hour a day schedule, my stamina and endurance was completely gone.
When I first started that line of work in ’03 I had normal endurance and ability like most people. After the long hours of labor and sleep deprivation began to take their toll, I became a screaming maniac beseeching God every single night to please rescue me from this nightmare of overwork and torture. So I held on hoping something better would be just around the corner. The end came in ’09 when I checked myself into a hospital with the symptoms of complete exhaustion along with chest pains.
The hospital found nothing wrong. The doctors were scratching their heads and when I asked about the possibility of some metabolic disorder they were still puzzled. They wanted me to do a follow up at their offices after discharge but because of lack of medical coverage I didn't. Fortunately and I'm sure as an answer to my many prayers, I found information on the internet about my symptoms – information which showed that I was not crazy or imagining things. A wonderful woman, Nadine Saubers (1), an RN who suffered 20 years from CFS, actually wrote and told me that if I did not stop working long hours overnight not to expect any possibility of recuperation.
So with a leap of faith in God, I left my job and tried to live on social security and came close to actually losing my house by foreclosure. I really couldn't work at that time – my endurance was so poor that the simplest of tasks would completely exhaust me.
After learning of supplements that would help my condition, I tried them. The D-Ribose especially made a miraculous difference.
Meanwhile after being out of work for over a year, close to bankruptcy, I had asked God for knowledge of His Will and that I would accept whatever happened while I tried to do the best I could with what I had. When I mentioned my plight to a former fellow truck driver, he mentioned a contractor who was looking for a driver.
Although his point of departure was one hour away from my house, I said to God – “all right God, if it be Your Will Ill do the foot work”.
After many anxious weeks of filling out the paper work and getting the necessary approval from the principal company, along with background checks and physical exams, I started a week of training with my new boss. Because of the way I had left work with the primary company, I didn't believe getting back under them was at all a possibility.
Nonetheless, the new boss gave me a route and he agreed to end my day by 8:30 – 9 pm! The starting time would be roughly at 11 am – I was very happy. But it got even better. He told me that he had acquired another trailer route of 232 miles into a nearby state and back (a one stop turn without even handling the freight). I hoped it would be worthwhile for him.
Well to my astonishment, he gave me that route! Headquarters of the contract-dispensing company demanded that I work into the overnight hours. My boss told them to leave me alone and that we had an understanding that I would not work later than 8:30 pm! He even told them he'd take his trucks elsewhere if they pushed the issue and would go to the National Labor Relations Board.
I've been praising and thanking God daily for this job, a job that I can do and not suffer ill effects. If I pace myself, and don't exceed a certain threshold, I feel normal.
My boss is meticulous about the tractor's condition (unlike the previous contractor); everything in it works including the air conditioning and filtering system which, in 90 degrees weather, is a true Blessing.
I get the route done efficiently and my boss says I'm making money for him and he's happy with that.
Now I'm starting to get out of debt and am hoping for a mortgage modification to occur.
Again I leave it up to The Lord and will go with whatever direction He takes me. I even have time to rest during my route to stop and offer prayers – praise The Lord !

Brethren, think about it. Mr. IW is 66 years old; was very sick requiring limited hours of work; the economy is down and unemployment is up... yet God gave him a "dream set up" - air conditioning included - because he believed and kept banging at God's door until they swung wide open.
Let us offer a prayer for the benefit of the willing instrument that God used to help Mr. IW - his current boss.
In his current road trip to Scotland and the UK, Ratzinger has repeatedly called for a 'union between Church and State'. This sentiment was echoed in a greeting speech to him, given by the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. This would seem to be "on schedule".
In watching the coverage on EWTN, I noted that Williams not only bowed submissively to Ratzinger, but also made (not quite but almost...) the gesture of kissing his ring; or at least bowing far forward enough to do it symbolically. Without actually touching it with his lips.
More disturbing, is was what happened toward the end of the prayer Vigil held today in London's Hyde Park. At the end of the ceremonies, as Ratzinger was leaving the stage, a boy soprano (accompanied by an orchestra) began to sing an arrangement of the Nunc Dimittis (1). Anyone who has ever attended Vespers/Evensong in either the Anglican or Roman tradition should know these words:
- "Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace : according to thy word.
- For mine eyes have seen : thy salvation,
- Which thou hast prepared : before the face of all people;
- To be a light to lighten the Gentiles : and to be the glory of thy people Israel."
These Papal visits are very carefully scripted and choreographed by a master of the art of the psychology of communication, who also has Doctorates in both Canon and Civil Law. (2) There are no mere accidents here.
This can interpreted in two ways:
If so, then we have the principle of Inversion in action.

Just as it was expected: Regardless of one's faith platform, the true people of God are being hemmed in - chained - by those who may use God to advance their worldly agendas but who truly do not believe in Him.
An American born Sufi, who has Eyes to See and Ears to Hear and who is known to us, wrote an anonymous letter (1) to every Sufi group he could locate in Britain, Australia and North America calling to their attention the enslavement of their faith and core beliefs. This also applies to all the people of God regardless of one's faith platform.
We highly recommend the review of this letter.
(1) The Letter
Did you know that..... the main concern of the Belgian Catholic Church is having to foot a legal bill comparable to the one in the US? (1)
A Church-backed commission last week revealed hundreds of abuse cases and 13 suicides linked to the decades-long scandal, identifying 91 accused priests who are still alive.
However, the Church itself vowed only to learn from the "errors of the past" by listening to the victims of predator priests.
"If we recognize our responsibility, even if we were not at our posts at the time of the facts, we fear demands for massive indemnizations," said the bishop of Tournai, Guy Harpigny, an influential voice in the abuse scandal.
(1) News Report
But wait..... it gets "better".... in a December 16, 1999, the New York Times had an article (1) with the following headline: Belgium Pedophilia Scandal - Did Authorities Cover Up Its Scope?: Book Revives Fear of Grand Conspiracy
The five women and the male transvestite who testified anonymously in Belgium under the code-name "X" described an underworld of snuff movies and sadomasochist torture that was almost impossible to believe. And they said that politicians and other highly placed members of society were involved.
The conventional wisdom is that the witnesses were either deranged or were recounting fantasies. It was, in the jargon of psychiatrists, a bad case of false-memory syndrome.
But a new [in 1999] book by three crime reporters, "The X-Files: What Belgium Was Not Supposed to Know About the Dutroux Affair," published in French and Dutch in November, asserts that the X-witnesses were more credible than the conventional wisdom suggests.
(1) News Report
But wait again..... the dots seem to be yielding a picture.... in her deposition (1), witness X-4 had this to say about certain Opus Dei members: "She talked about how members of high society regularly allow themselves to be taken up in different religious cults and sects. In one of her later testimonies X4 mentioned that members of Opus Dei had been among her most sadistic clients."
The M+G+R Foundation Warning: We have provided the reference [(1)] because we could not quote such statement "in a vacuum", but we read nothing else of the entire deposition, nor most of X4’s deposition. We do not recommend that you read it either. Reading that kind of graphic material actually wounds/hurts the soul. This kind of material should only be read when it is a "must", otherwise it should be avoided.

[Note from The M+G+R Foundation: The following may look like "just another cute message" that keeps circulating in the Internet, but it is not. It contains probably the key reason for the many miseries in this world. We will add a final comment at the end of the text.]
I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, ' This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.
I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world. Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them." I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledgment Section, my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed." 'How is it that there is no work going on here? ' I asked.
"So sad," the angel sighed. "After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back
"How does one acknowledge God's blessings?" I asked..
"Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you, Lord. "
"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.
b. "And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity."
c. "If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day. "
d. "If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... You are ahead of 700 million people in the world."
e. "If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world."
f. "If your parents are still alive and still married ...you are very rare."
g. "If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair......."
"Ok, what now? How can I start?", I asked the angel guide.
"After sharing this message with many who have never thought of it", the angel responded, "unceasingly Thank God for the many Graces that you just realized you have and seldom acknowledge, and the many more that you are not even aware of."
A. Once again, invoking the master key of our understanding of God: God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. [Gen. 1:27] we ask you: How many humans would keep sending gifts to another human who does not acknowledge them or is completely indifferent to the gifts... and may even complain about them? Probably none.
So does God! Remember, we were created in His image!
"What? You say that God is Merciful and would never do that?" Think again.... while you are still able to do so!
He allowed (not "caused" nor "did") the bloodiest war of human history - World War II - because His clearly given instructions (1) on how to prevent it were not followed by a handful of clerics at the Vatican.
Let us wake up and smell the coffee before we lose the olfactory nerve!
(1) Clearly given instructions
(1) If you are a new visitor, you may get the idea (from what you may read on this page) that we are part of what is known as the "liberal movement" within Catholicism. We strongly suggest that you first review our positions regarding the Pristine Catholic Faith (we said "Faith" and not "Church Administration), RC Church Administration, Only Possible Changes Within the RCC Allowed by God and Our Function.
(2) If you prefer to evaluate positions using the "liberal", "moderate" and "conservative" labels, we would fall in the "practicing conservative" group, without the fanaticism which most "talking conservatives" exhibit. The difference between "practicing conservative" and "talking conservative" is that the first strives to live what Jesus Christ taught, while the second one, the "talking conservative", just talks about the faith and practices just enough for others to see.
