The purpose of Points to Ponder
About is to stimulate thinking that would draw the disoriented
Faithful back to God (1)
and away from the hypocritical duplicity of some religious
institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth (2)(3).
The instructions are simple: Just invoke the illumination of the
Holy Spirit of God while you ponder upon any of these Points to Ponder and let God guide
you to Light. We know that some make-believe religious leaders will
say: "What about satan interfering
and leading the soul astray?" To those... we invoke Our Lord's

Perhaps they have not yet reached the part in the New Testament when
the method is clearly explained by Paul:
And by reason of the exceeding
greatness of the
revelations, that I should not be exalted overmuch, there was given to
me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, that I
should not be exalted overmuch. Concerning this thing I besought
Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he hath said unto
grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the
power of Christ may rest upon me. [ 2 Corinthians 12: 7-9 ]

happened as the result of earthquakes in Kashmir? The floods in Central

were even adequate?
Check into the news services worldwide and you will see that the

many human beings in the Kashmir area as the result of no proper

why would God allow Hurricane
Rita right on the heels of Hurricane Katrina? Perhaps this
imaginary conversation between God and one of the Agents of the
Apocalypse may answer that question. [Tone of the conversation
wit God is similar to those found in the movies "Oh God!" and "Bruce
= God speaking
= Agent of the Apocalypse
Well, Agent of the
Apocalypse, what do you think We should do with Rita? Remember, St.
Rita is the patroness of the Hopeless Cases and
we should be able to use that "connection" to get people, in apparently
hopeless situations, to pray. (1)
Lord, You know what
is Right and Perfect, but since You have asked, I will think, pray and
I see three options
that You have, although, of course, You may have many more that I am
not able to
discern yet, for You are Infinite and I am not. (2)
Guide the storm right into the same area Katrina destroyed to see if
they catch on, since they obviously have not - considering that
they are giving priority to the opening of Strip Joints in the French
Quarters while the corpses were still littering the area streets.
Destruction and disruption would be minimal since most that could be
destroyed has been destroyed or flooded out already. The area is
essentially uninhabited since most are already still out and there will
not be the hassle of an evacuation; or
(b) Guide the storm to the
Houston-Galveston metroplex and "work it over" like You did in the New
Orleans - Mississippi area. This strike, after the Katrina punch, will
essentially fulfill part of the Step No. 1 (2a) for the U.S.
having to allow the abuse of nuclear weapons. Thus keeping with the
theme of a Green Apocalypse, where suffering (for the good people of
the US) will be minimized while Prophecy is fulfilled and Justice
(c) Guide the storm against
empty coastal area after making the citizens of major coastal cities
"walk on their knees" for a while "while sweating blood" with fear thus
inspiring the spirit of repentance in them.
OK - but you are
giving Me options that I know, but, what do you think
Well Lord - no
wonder You are God - you don't miss a trick... certainly not this poor
Agent of the Apocalypse trying to weasel out of an answer.
OK, let me see if I can make any sense...
Should You allow option (a), they will still not catch on. The damage
would be less and, if with greater damage and suffering, all they think
about is getting Sodom and Gomorra going again first and foremost, a
second pass will not do anything else but bring more hardship upon the
poor and abandoned.
Should You allow option (c), on a second thought, the level of
blindness and denial (3)
is so great that the few who would walk on their knees would be those
who fell down
drunk during the Hurricane Parties and not because they are praying.
Thus, that storm energy that you will spend will yield few new
conversions and many severe hang overs.
Must admit - you are
not far from the truth. But what about option (b)? Would not that be
terrible? You know well the area. You know that is packed with
refineries and petrochemical complexes and the population is about 3
million. You know that Houston is also major port and business center.
Frankly, Lord, You
have taught me much and some of those teachings help me to "see beyond
the obvious", to "look at the whole picture" and to understand what
Your "Mercy In Action" (4)
is all about. Therefore, I must admit that option
seems to be the
best, unless, of course, this is just a teaser to make people think of,
and pray to St. Rita - the patroness of the impossible - and You have
something else up You Holy Sleeve to answer my prayer for a Green
Therefore, I would choose option (b) BUT, as always
to Your Will by stating: Should it
be in accordance to Your Most Holy and Adorable Will

to hit River Oaks, Memorial and Sugarland harder while this time go

why History repeats itself?
History repeats itself because man is incapable of learning unless
God has been fully integrated into his life.
This is why what Konrad Adenauer, German Chancellor (1876-1967), was
wrong when he said: "The good
Lord sets definite limits on man's
wisdom but sets no limits on his stupidity – and that's just not
It is not that God is unfair - it is that man, without God
cannot be anything else but stupid, thus continues to repeat the same
mistakes millennia after millennia.
The "God" component in man is "the
ingredient" that allows man to be the Crown Jewel of Creation as
intended him to be, thus, man will cease being stupid and avoid
repeating mistakes. Mistakes which God allowed to be made so that
lessons, that could not be learned otherwise, be learned for his
When the God "component" is missing, man is incomplete and drops to the
bottom of the zoological scale as he has repeatedly proven for over

what is the real meaning of:
let them that are in Judaea flee unto the
mountains: let him that is on the housetop not go down to take
out things that are in his house: and let him that is in the
field not return back to take his cloak."
The above quotation is from Matthew 24: 15-21 which appear on our most
recent document An
Obviously is not a call to immediate
action in the literal form. He is not telling them, then, and us,
today, to drop everything and "head for the hills". Basically what He
is telling us is that:
events are near enough to remain ready - physically and spiritually; just as
the children of Israel were on the night of Passover [Exodus 12: 1-13];
(2) We must
rearrange our priorities
as they should be - attentive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and not to the physical
things you posses; and
Once you are on the move, do not turn back for anything - this brings
to mind the wife of Lot who turned into a pillar of salt. [Exodus 19: 26]
God is as consistent with His instructions as we are with
our disobedience. By clarifying this for you we are obeying Him - how
you respond to it, is completely out of our hands because it is
between you and God.

which razed Galveston,

It is not that we are crying "conspiracies!" but when something this
incoherent hits us right on the face it makes one wonder.
As the newscasters in Europe and the US were making the approach of
Katrina just another Reality Show, we realized that no one was
mentioning the 1900 Storm in Galveston. To give you a "flavor" for that
storm we quote from the official
On September 8, 1900, a hurricane struck
Winds estimated at 140 mph swept over the island, leaving
in their wake. After the storm surge of 15.7 feet subsided,
Galvestonians left their shelters to find 6,000 of the city's
37,000 residents dead and more than 3,600 buildings totally
The 1900 Storm is still considered to be the
natural disaster in U.S. history. After the storm, Galveston
constructed a seawall and raised the grade of the island to

ever wonder... What Jesus really meant when He said:
thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven,
shalt be brought down to hell; for if the mighty works, which have been
done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained
this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the
land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee." [S. Matthew
of the destruction of Sodom was the time of Abraham, who as you may
recall, managed to convince God to delay its destruction appealing to
His Justice for the few non sinners remaining in it. [Genesis 18: 17-33]
However, Capernaum (1) was a city that was
Graced with the physical manifestation of the Second Person of the Most
Holy Trinity - Jesus Christ. In that city he worked mighty deeds, yet,
they turned their back to Him; they did not believe in Him.
Thus, one of the many messages in this
particular Biblical passage is that:
amidst the wickedness (due maily to ignorance/darkness) found in Sodom,
had they met Jesus Christ and learned His teachings, enough of those
ignorant citizens would have responded in a positive way so that the
city would not have been destroyed for the same reason God did
not destroy it originally at Abarham's insistance. Yet, "holy"
Capernaum which rejected Jesus Christ, was brought down to hell.
But what is "accept" or "reject" Jesus
Christ? That will be the next entry in "Do you ever

1 Then spake Jesus to the
multitudes and to his disciples, 2 saying, The scribes and the
Pharisees sit on Moses seat: 3 all things therefore whatsoever
they bid you, these do and observe: but do not ye after their works;
for they say, and do not.
4 Yea, they bind heavy burdens
and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they
themselves will not move them with their finger.
5 But all their works they do
to be seen of men: for they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge
the borders of their garments, 6 and love the chief place at
feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and the
salutations in the marketplaces, and to be called of men, Rabbi.
8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your teacher, and all ye
are brethren. 9 And call no man your father on the earth: for one
is your Father, even he who is in heaven.

26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup and

27 Woe unto you, scribes and
Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which
outwardly appear beautiful, but inwardly are full of dead men's bones,
and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear
righteous unto men, but inwardly ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29 Woe unto you, scribes and
Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and
garnish the tombs of the righteous, 30 and say, If we had been in
the days of our fathers, we should not have been partakers with them in
the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye witness to yourselves,
that ye are sons of them that slew the prophets. 32 Fill ye up
then the measure of your fathers.
33 Ye serpents, ye offspring of
vipers, how shall ye escape the judgment of hell? 34 Therefore,
behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: some of
them shall ye kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in
your synagogues, and persecute from city to city: 35 that
upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the
blood of Abel the righteous unto the blood of Zachariah son of
Barachiah, whom ye slew between the sanctuary and the altar.

ever wonder... Why the Vatican continues to try to impose God and
His Laws, by force and coercion, upon people instead of loving people
into wanting to be with God and love His Laws when this unGodly method
of "Evangelization" has failed so miserably given the state of the
world today - and its history?
The answer lies in what in the business
world is referred to as the "Peter Principle": An individual is promoted up to his level
Logically, if said individual's abilities
were still being "under utilized", he would still be promoted one more
level and so on. In the spiritual realm it is the same, except that,
through drawing closer to God our "abilities" keep on growing and we
may safely be "promoted" within His service indefinitely.
If Jesus, the Second Person of the Triune God, "...advanced in wisdom,
and age, and grace with God and men." [Luke 2:52] - that is, He
progressed in His spiritual and intellectual development as a human

arrived" and no further effort is needed for spiritual and intellectual
Tragically, they stopped centuries ago as legendarily Francis of Assisi
pointed out to Pope Innocent III while, at the same time, John Bosco

not the supply of resources for growth - resources which are
uniquely supplied by God.

Do you ever wonder... why such a prayer
"big to do" is made when someone passes on? Masses, rosaries, etc.
If we would have paid close attention to our Lord Jesus Christ and His
Most Holy Mother, we would have made a point of offering all those
prayers before the
individual passes on. When we pray for each other we are helping each
other to minimize the falls into sin as well as giving each other a
hand in returning to
House of the Father.
But, as with most everything else, after nearly 2000 years, the
