The purpose of this News Commentary Section is to assist the faithful in recognizing the signs and lies of These End Times. Somehow, many self appointed Shepherds of These Times are trying to convince the faithful that the Apocalypse will be, using street slang, "a piece of cake "for them and "hell" for all others. They are led to believe that if they "do this" and "do that" they do not have a thing to worry about (of course, so long as that between the "do this" and the "do that" they send in a donation).
Others lead the faithful to believe that "All Is Well" and will continue to be, of course, as long as those donations keep coming in...
Wrong! For either case scenario to be true, the Old and New Testament has to be invalid. Logically, if the Holy Scriptures are invalid there is no use for "Shepherds", is there? So what is their function besides collecting money?
Spending it, of course!
Now, let us focus on the real world and the news about its
philosophies and half-baked theories crumble. With the assistance of
Holy Spirit of God, Who cannot be falsified, the disoriented faithful
be able to understand what is truly taking place and why.
NEWS - May 23,2004 (Zenit.org) - John Paul II Cautions About Factions Within Church - Code: ZE04052302VATICAN CITY, MAY 23, 2004.- One of the essential missions of a bishop is to address the "worrisome phenomenon "of factions within the Church, says John Paul II.
"As in any family, the Church's internal harmony can at times be challenged by a lack of charity and the presence of conflict among her members," the Pope said Saturday when meeting with U.S. bishops from the ecclesiastical provinces of San Antonio and Oklahoma City.
"This can lead to the formation of factions within the Church which often become so concerned with their special interests that they lose sight of the unity and solidarity which are the foundations of ecclesial life and the sources of communion in the family of God," the Holy Father said.
The M+G+R Foundation CommentsLord Have Mercy! How could the Faithful not be confused! It even sound as if H.H. John Paul II were..May 21stHe states: "... factions within the Church... can lead to the formation of factions within the Church which often become so concerned with their special interests that they lose sight of the unity and solidarity..."It is he - or appears to have been him.... appearances are deceiving - who has promoted The Prelature of the HolyCross and Opus Dei, The Neo-Catechumenal Way, The Legionnaires of Christ, Regnum Christi, etc., etc. Groups which are beyond "factions" since they seem to exhibit all the marks of "sects" by linguistic and anthropologically measurements. To the point that a Belgian Parliamentary Commission grouped the Opus Dei together with other Sects.
As we have said before and will continue to say until the end, the longer H.H. John Paul II allows himself to be used by special interests within the Church Administration, the greatest the harm that he will bring upon the magnificent work of his early Pontificate.
NEWS - May 5,2004 - Brazilian Bishops Ask Priests to Stay Out of Politics - Code:ZE04050521SAO PAULO, MAY 5, 2004 (Zenit.org).- The Brazilian bishops' conference reminded priests that direct participation in politics is not their proper role.
"We do not have to replace the laity in what is their specific competence," said Cardinal Geraldo Majella Agnelo, president of the episcopate, during the closing press conference of the bishops' recent general assembly.
"We are worried that some of you [priests] allow yourselves to be carried away by the illusion, according to which you will serve the people better by carrying out political tasks rather than through the priestly ministry," the episcopal message states.
"The specific character of the priest's mission hinges on the figure of Christ, the Good Shepherd, which is not reconciled with politics based on parties," the letter indicates....
In addressing relations between priests and society, the bishops reaffirm the priests' commitment in favor of the poor and the marginalized.
"The conviction of the evangelical preferential option for the poor, constitutive element of the priest's spirituality, is ever more intense," the bishops state....

Praised Be Jesus!
A Cardinal and over 300 Bishops who truly understand their function and mission. Now, if we could only help the Shepherd-Predators-Administrators- starting with the Vatican - understand this, the problems, as we journey through Time would be minimized, as Our Lord Jesus Christ promised.
Let us pray...
NEWS - April 30, 2004 - Cardinal Theodore McCarrick on pro-choice politicians
NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER: Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, who is leading a U.S. bishops’ committee to study the possibility of sanctions against pro-choice politicians, has denied that this is part of a strategy on the part of the bishops to support the reelection of President George W. Bush.
“Absolutely not,” McCarrick said in an exclusive April 28 interview with NCR in Rome.
McCarrick said that while he appreciates Bush's stands on human life, Catholic education, and HIV/AIDS relief, he has reservations about the president's policies in Iraq and the Middle East.
“I hope that [Catholics] really study the issues,” McCarrick said. “Look at the questions of life that are primary, but look at everything.”
The M+G+R Foundation Comments
Restating our position on abortion: No, under any circumstances!; and our position on elected officials: They are elected to represent a constituency and not any branch of Organized Religion, we comment as follows:
We suggest to Cardinal McCarrick and all of similar thinking that if we are going to “Look at the questions of life that are primary", then the war, any kind of war, should be on top of the agenda.
Any branch of Christianity that endorses war under any circumstances by not penalizing its members as they would under any other alleged transgressions, will have to answer to Our Father. "To those whom much has been given, much will be demanded from", and, as we have stated repeatedly, the Roman Catholic Church is the one Christian branch that God has given the most.
Why has this happened? Why has the world turned into a cesspool?
After the Ever Virgin Mary gave us a key for deliverance from evil through the events of Rue de Bac (Miraculous Medal - France 1830/1831), Shecame back to LaSalette and opened Her Message as follows:"The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their love of honors and pleasures, the priests have become cesspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking for vengeance, and vengeance is hanging over their heads. Woe to the priests and to those dedicated to God who by their unfaithfulness and their wicked lives are crucifying my son again! The sins of those dedicated to God cry out towards Heaven and call for vengeance, and now vengeance is at their door, for there is no one left to beg mercy and forgiveness for the people. There are no more generous souls, there is no one left worthy of offering a stainless sacrifice to the Eternal God for the sake of the world."
But, as usual, She was ignored and Her Apparition became another means of earning money.
That certain people do not want to believe that such message is true? Not a problem! We present you the World where all that has taken place and continues to. To free the Shepherds from the responsibility of the world-turned-into-cesspoolwould be ascribing satan a power greater than God. How dare anyone even imply, by their duplicitous behavior, such a blasphemy? "Who is like unto God?!?"
Brothers and Sisters - from the Roman Curia to the lowliest and humblest Christian - We encourage you to take a long and hard look at your lives and work because what God will allow upon humanity soon is our collective fault and not God's!
NEWS - May 13, 2004 - Pope to Ask Bush for Radical Shift in Policy, Says Cardinal Laghi - Code: ZE04051304
VATICAN CITY (Zenit.org).- John Paul II will ask U.S. President George Bush to stop basing his policies in Iraq and the Holy Land on recourse to force, when they meet June 4, a cardinal says. "We are at the edge of a precipice and we must stop," said Cardinal Pio Laghi, a one-time papal nuncio in the United States, in statements to the Italian newspaper Il Corriere della Sera....
"If it does not stop, the whirlwind of horror will involve other peoples and will lead us ever more to the abyss," said the cardinal....
The M+G+R Foundation Comments
We are glad to see that, although H.H. John Paul II has not been allowed yet to publicly make such statements per se, just like he was not allowed to explain the real third part of the secret of Fátima on May 13, 2000, he has managed to get this correct and timely warning out through Cardinal Laghi.
Of course the world will fall into the abyss; it is written and will take place but, as miguel de Portugal, H.H. John Paul II, as demanded by the Divine Mercy of God, had the responsibility to have been issuing these warnings also.
Unfortunately he fell into a carefully laid snare and has been unable to fully carry out the function of the last legitimate Successor of Peter.
Let us pray that he finds the means to continue to do so, although the remaining time is very short.
NEWS - May 12, 2004 - Lawmakers Shocked by New Images of Iraqi Prisoners- By Vicki Allen
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Members of the U.S. Congress saw new images of violence and sexual humiliation from a U.S.- run Iraqi prison on Wednesday in a closed viewing one lawmaker likened to a descent into "the wings of hell."
The M+G+R Foundation Comments
This is the product of a few men who make an issue of praying before political and military decisions are taken; decisions which will impact their Nation and the World.
If they would not stain the Name of Jesus and His salvific message by their hypocritical and duplicitous behavior, we would not feature this news report. However, since they do, and, by association, they harm the Faith of the already much confused children of God we must come to the assistance of the Faithful as well as those same individuals who, perhaps not knowing it, have dragged the Holiest of Names to the pits of hell.
Thus, remembering the words of Paul to Timothy [1Timothy 1: 20]:
In the Name of God we hand them over to the power of satan in the hopes that they may save their souls.
NEWS - May 12, 2004
The Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church (2nd Edition) announces that:837 "Fully incorporated into the society of the Church are those who, possessing the Spirit of Christ, accept all the means of salvation given to the Church together with her entire organization,... Even though incorporated into the Church, one who does not however persevere in charity is not saved. He remains indeed in the bosom of the Church, but 'in body' not 'in heart.'"
The M+G+R Foundation Comments
This is obviously "News" judging by the "condemn-and-damn-thy-neighbor-if-you-do-not-do-as-I-do"behavior of the Roman Catholics of the fanatical persuasion. We further assume that the concept of "Charity" must continue to be a secret to many of our brethren, therefore we went to the same "News" source and we quote for their benefit that:1829 The fruits of charity are joy, peace, and mercy; charity demands beneficence and fraternal correction; it is benevolence; it fosters reciprocity and remains disinterested and generous; it is friendship and communion: Love is itself the fulfillment of all our works. There is the goal; that is why we run: we run toward it, and once we reach it, in it we shall find rest.
1822 Charity is the theological virtue by which we love God above all things for his own sake, and our neighbor as ourselves for the love of God.
This is why we continue to exhort one and all to pray for our (true or perceived) enemies and persecutors... pray, we say, not condemn, give false testimony about and ostracize them.
One last word of advise: Do not to attempt to fake charitable behavior as it so often done - God is the Sole and Final Judge and He can read our hearts and He can see through the duplicity of man as easy as we can see through a perfectly clear glass pane.
NEWS - May 9, 2004The Portuguese daily "O PÚBLICO" reports that, according to the administration of the Sanctuary of Fátima in Portugal, there has been an increase of 92 % in the number of Pilgrims attending Mass at the Sanctuary in the period covered from 1992 through 2003.
The M+G+R Foundation CommentsThis substantial increase (1.7 million more participants) has been achieved through the Grace of God since, according to the same official sources, the number of official masses during the same period has only increased by 0.4 % and the Portuguese media has been attacking the faith fiercely during that same period of time.May 6th
We are very happy to report some good news, for a change, although our seemingly standard commentary of: "All continues to develop according to schedule" applies here too.
As Our Lady of the Rosary at Fátima stated, as part of the real third part of the Secret of Fátima: "InPortugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved, etc...."
Something that statistics do not show, but which is also very encouraging, is that much of that increase comes from young "rank and file" Portuguese couples who, without the neo-fanaticism that distorts the true Faith, come to Fátima seeking to deepen their faith and pay homage to Whom they consider their Heavenly Mother AND the Queen of Portugal.
Note Added on May 10th: In twelve years we have not seen so many pilgrims walking towards the Sanctuary Fátima for the traditional May 13th rendezvous there as we are witnessing this year. It is astounding in number and in the variety - all walks of life and ages are well represented. May The Name of God be Thrice Glorified!
NEWS- May 5, 2004COMET NEAT: Long-awaited Comet NEAT (C/2001Q4) is approaching Earth and growing brighter. At closest approach on May 7th, it will be 48 million km from our planet and about as bright as a 3rd magnitude star. [Earth - Moon distance varies from 363,300 and 405,500 km]
The comet is now visible to the unaided eye, just barely after sunset from dark sky locations in the northern hemisphere. It looks like a fuzzy blob with a stubby tail. City dwellers are advised to use binoculars or a small telescope. Visit Spaceweather.com for pictures of the comet and a sky map.
The M+G+R Foundation CommentsAnother coincidence? May 7th is the First Friday (Sacred Heart Devotion) of the month and on May 8th we celebrate Mary, Mediatrix of all Graces. The issue is not the closeness of the encounter but the symbolism. It probably is just another "coincidence" as the ones during World Wars I and II.

It is anticipated that the objectives of the study will be realized in six months, at which time the findings will be presented to the Italian Ministry of Health.
The M+G+R Foundation Comments
While the disoriented faithful expects some one to literally imprint a "666" on the forehead or hand [Rev. 13] of those at the service of the Beast, Applied Digital Solutions, Inc .is busily promoting the Space Age version of the "666".
In addition, what most individuals are not aware of is that in some European countries dogs do not have "dog tags" anymore. They have a chip implanted under their skin with their ID as well as the location of its owner. This "trial on animals" has been in force for some years no.
This is not to alarm the reader. This is just to point out that the Apocalypse is "on schedule".
