"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through.   I do not think that wide circles of American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully.  We are now facing the FINAL confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel."

---Karol Cardinal Wojtyla (St. Pope John Paul II), November 9, 1976

DAILY PRAYER FOR DELIVERANCE (approved for the laity) by the Roman Catholic Church to ward off all sorts of evil:

My Lord, You are all powerful.  You are God. 
You are Father.
We beg You through the intercession and help
of the Archangels Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel
for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters
( name family members, friends and others who have strayed away from God)
who are enslaved by the Evil One.
All saints of Heaven, come to our aid.

From anxiety, sadness, and obsessions,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From hatred, fornication, envy,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From every thought of suicide and abortion,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From every form of sinful sexuality,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From every division in our family,
and every harmful friendship,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From every sort of evil spell, malefice, (evil spell) witchcraft, and every form of occult,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.

Lord, You who said, "I leave you peace, my peace I give you," grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell and enjoy Your peace always.
In the name of Christ, our Lord.  Amen

The Third Secret of Fatima &  Our Lady of Akita, Japan Messages- "The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops."

Commentary:  As you may be aware, this is happening now as shown in a number of the below reports.  vtb

The Shrine of Our Lady of Loreto in Italy
- Contains Mary's original house.

Demystifying the Pope Francis Enigma - "Many of Francis’ pronouncements do not have the binding authority of obligatory teaching; i.e., they are not “magisterium” in the proper sense of the term—people are free to listen and pay attention or not, free to let themselves be challenged, motivated, or convinced. The Holy Father’s language touches the hearts of many, perhaps more than their minds—and presumably this is precisely the pope’s intention. He does not offer refined analysis, carefully weighing all aspects in order to arrive at affirmations that are beyond criticism. What he wants to do is surprise, challenge, provoke, or reassure, console, and support."

Commentary: The above explanation does not excuse Pope Francis from clarifying his statements for the good of the Church and for the good of those outside the Church, rather than remaining silent and causing confusion as to exactly where his positions are on certain grave moral issues.  In addition, it does not excuse him from failing to correct cardinals and bishops with radical liberal views that vary from Church doctrines and traditional teachings

While I admire much of what Pope Francis says about spiritual things, and many of his writings and works involving compassion, I cannot give my approval to the divisions and confusion he is causing.  Therefore, within some of the below CATHOLIC REPORTS I have brought to the attention of the public and those within the Church some of the scandal he has created, and continues to create, knowingly or unknowingly.  However, also following God's Holy Will, he continues to remain in my daily prayers, along with all the clergy and members of religious orders in the Church, so that it will again become One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. 

"..the God of patience and of comfort grant you to be of one mind
towards another, according to Jesus Christ"
Romans 15:5

"Popular & controversial news reports & powerful conservative commentaries in search of the truth for these dangerous & evil times"

(Political - social - military - environmental - health - spirituality - apologetics - theology - prophecy & 
Catholic Church issues)


Please note:  As of Sunday, Feb. 19, 2016, new reports are again being posted.

Ephesians Six: Prayers in Spiritual Warfare
- "It is foolish and outside Church teaching to deny that the devil is not in the mix of the spiritual world. Yet, he isn’t to blame for every evil thought or deed since sin is at work in our fallen nature. Daily we decide, consciously or unconsciously, to cultivate virtuous habits that strengthen our spiritual armor or destructive vices that weaken or remove the armor. Absent God’s armor we become extremely vulnerable to diabolical vexation (cf. Book of Job)."

Late exorcist’s words lift the veil on the demonic, Satan - "The world-renowned exorcist, Pauline Father Gabriele Amorth, who died this past September, has left his wisdom and experience in dealing with evil forces...."

How can I foster a relationship with my guardian angel?
- "First off, we should think of our guardian angels as friends. There aren’t any secrets between us, as they see everything we do. It’s a good idea to greet them and ask for their assistance during the day."

Namaste, Satan: Metal yoga class set inside Satanic Temple in Salem, Mass. - "Metal music and yoga do not seem like two things that go together all that often. But they're getting paired up under one roof: The Satanic Temple in Salem, Massachusetts."

Commentary: Members are playing with the fires of Hell and that punishment will last for all eternity.  vtb

Lessons from a New Age devotee who became a Catholic - "The Church is engaged in a spiritual battle, says Roger Buck – and, in the West at least, it is losing."

VIDEO - Trump condemns anonymous sources as staff demands anonymity, and more... - "All presidents have their moments of tension with the press, but Trump's first weeks in office have brought a frontal attack unlike anything from any other president."

Conservatives: This Is Our Time
- "But no matter how you define Trump’s conservative bonafides, it appears to be the first time in decades a Republican president — whose party controls both chambers of Congress — can implement a largely conservative agenda.  “We conservatives have an opportunity that only comes around every few generations,” Vice President Pence told CPAC on Thursday. “My friends, this is our time.”

Look At Light During Prayers For America!

5 Signs You’re Eating Too Much Protein
- " Protein and its amino acids help build and repair cells, build muscles, strengthen bones and keep hormones balanced. But eating too much of it can trigger unpleasant side effects."

The Forgotten Treachery of Obama’s State Department - "We all know about the Obama administration's lies and treachery regarding Benghazi. But how many of you know about the Obama administration's lies and treachery against the American families of the Americans ambushed and murdered on the orders of Raul Castro?"

Trump proposes rally that would be 'the biggest of them all' - "Taking to Twitter, the president tweeted: "Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally. It would be the biggest of them all!"

Who are the Majority of Anti Trumpers?
- "President Trump is meeting opposition from those licentious, godless, moral relativist, lawless Left...Their ideology is rooted in the firm rejection of Almighty God..."

Mexican border wall building contracts to be awarded by April - "It's unclear how soon Congress would provide funding and how much. The Government Accountability Office estimates it would cost on average $6.5 million a mile for a fence to keep out people who try to enter on foot and $1.8 million a mile for vehicle barriers. There are currently 354 miles of pedestrian fencing and 300 miles of vehicle barriers, much of it built during President George W. Bush's second term."

As Trump Unmuzzles the Economy, Rosy Scenario Will Become Economic Reality
- "His common-sense growth policy has worked before, and will again."

President Trump Hears America’s Plea To END HUMAN TRAFFICKING, And He Takes Action! HE IS REALLY LISTENING TO US. PLUS, FBI ANON
- "Sec. 2. Policy. It shall be the policy of the executive branch to: (a) strengthen enforcement of Federal law in order to thwart transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including criminal gangs, cartels, racketeering organizations, and other groups engaged in illicit activities that present a threat to public safety and national security and that are related to, for example..."

Pentagon Says OBAMA Was Wrong: It’s NOT ISIL, IT’S ISIS! (Video)
- "By calling the terrorist organization ISIL, Obama was giving the group added credibility in the eyes of the Islamic world because the group’s stated goal “is to restore an Islamic state, or caliphate, in this entire area.”

The Final Hijra: A Warning on the Refugee Crisis
- "In Islamic law and applied theology, the idea of the hijra pertains to the movement of a group of Muslims from a predominately Muslim area to a predominately non-Muslim area, with the goal of establishing Islam’s dominance in it."

In West Africa, Trump — not Obama — a beacon of hope
- "Good riddance Barack Obama. And welcome Donald Trump. Surprisingly, that’s the view of many people in this western African nation, which is 78 percent Christian and 11 percent Muslim."


When Can Catholics Disagree on Social Teachings?- "There is much confusion today about the obligations of Catholics towards positions on political matters taken by individual bishops or conference of bishops or even the pope himself."

Commentary: Granted, there are different opinions on social issues. The key is, are they moral issues as taught by the Magisterium of the Church?  In addition, for the laity to discern what is a true Church teaching or doctrine, they need clear statements from the Pope Francis and unified statements from the bishops.  Unfortunately, as you may be aware, they are not getting this.  vtb

Trump administration issues new immigration enforcement policies, says goal is not ‘mass deportations’
- "The Trump administration on Tuesday sought to allay growing fears among immigrant communities over wide-ranging new directives to ramp up enforcement against illegal immigrants, insisting the measures are not intended to produce “mass deportations.”

Pope Francis: Jesus Did NOT Tell the Pharisees that Divorce is Forbidden- "There are coming to us now different reports about Pope Francis’ Santa Marta homily of today which are very troubling. He mentions the Pharisees’ question about divorce and whether it is permitted and then comments on the reaction of Our Lord (Mark 10:1-12)..."

Commentary: Does Pope Francis re-interpret the Gospels to fit his own agenda?  Did he conveniently ignore the traditional meaning of Mark 10:1-12 and set aside Church doctrine previously confirmed by St. Pope John Paul II and many others throughout Church history?  In this analysis, is he being led by the Holy Spirit or by his own opinions?  This, and other strange observations have become the cornerstone questions of his papacy to date.   vtb

Malta: controversial statement, corresponds to the will of the pope '- "Priests who did not agree with Pope Francis could leave the priestly seminar of the Archdiocese of Malta at any time."

Google Plans To Fight Internet ‘Hate Speech’ With Tool That Automatically Flags It…
- "Now Google is zeroing in on the problem. On Thursday, the company publicly released an artificial intelligence tool, called Perspective, that scans online content and rates how “toxic” it is based on ratings by thousands of people."

Commentary: Based on the average Internet postings, Democrats are very active in their attacks against Trump.  Will their hateful attacks be flagged?  Will they monopolize the voting as to what is "hateful" or what is not "politically correct??  We will have to wait and see.  vtb

MUST SEE VIDEO!  Hermit of Loreto’s 1980s Premonition about President Trump
- "In this VIDEO, Father Capoverde shares an amazing premonition this Hermit of Loreto had all the way back in the 1980s about Donald J. Trump.  Please watch as Father shares this incredible story."

Revisitations. Twelve Years Ago Bergoglio Did Not Have the Doubts of Today
- Pope Francis reverses himself.  He at one time approved of St.Pope John Paul II's  pronouncements about divorce.  vtb

Bishop Schneider: If a Bishop or Pope Commands Me to Sin, “I Have to Refuse”
- "Bishop Schneider: Aspects of Second Vatican Council Might Be Corrected in the Future; Priests Must Also Come to Resist at Times."

Contemplative Prayer and the Beloved Disciple - "Without me, you can do nothing.” These words from Christ Himself in the Gospel of John (John 15:5) capture the essence of how our attitude towards prayer should be. Prayer involves our effort and cooperation with grace, especially in the early stages. But without the grace of God we cannot achieve anything through prayer. In fact contemplative prayer is something granted to souls entirely at God’s discretion. You cannot follow some special formula to arrive at union with God."

Vladimir Soloviev, the Mystic Admired by Popes - "..the great Russian philosopher envisioned and “predicted with prophetic clarity all of the disasters which in fact occurred.” He foresaw that the 20th century would be "the epoch of great wars, civil strife and revolutions." He made sure to highlight these in his Tale of the Antichrist."

Dead Friends, Bishops, and LifeSiteNews
- A testimony about homosexual lifestyles and the Church

Religion: Thick and Thin
- "I am an old man – old enough to have vivid memories of what American Catholicism was like prior to the end of Vatican II (1965). If I were asked to give a very short summary of the differences between the pre-V2 and post-V2 versions of American Catholicism, I would say the former was a “thick” religion while the latter is a “thin” religion. And I would add that thick religions are “hard” while thin religions are “easy.” So pre-V2 Catholicism was thickand hard, while present-day American Catholicism is thin and easy."

Muslim Reform Group Reached Out to 3,000 US Mosques, Got Only 40 Responses
- "We spent significant resources on this outreach over a period of ten months. We reached out through snail mail, e-mail, and telephone to over 3,000 mosques and over 500 known public American Muslims. We received only 40-plus rather dismissive responses from our outreach, and sadly less than ten of them were positive. In fact, one mosque in South Carolina left us a vicious voice mailthreatening our staff if we contacted them again."

Commentary: Muslims have no one to blame but themselves when people fail to identify them as truly good, religious people.  vtb

Why Does Francis Demand Mass Muslim Immigration Despite Its Obvious Dangers?  Antonio Socci’s Provocative Answer
- "Francis shows no signs of dropping his demand for a seemingly limitless accommodation of “refugees,” the vast majority of whom are military-age Muslim males, while he resides in a walled enclave surrounded by a small army of security guards. Meanwhile, as Robert Spencer notes, the consequences in both Europe and the United States have been deadly."

What can defenders of life and family expect from Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch?
- "As a member of the Episcopal Church, St. John Parish is subject to resolutions passed by the body’s general assembly allowing practicing homosexuals to become priests and bishops, and mandating the formulation of ceremonies for celebrating homosexual “marriages,” a cause embraced enthusiastically by the pastor. The Episcopal Church has also issued statements opposing any legal restrictions on the killing of the unborn, and holding that abortion can be justified in cases of risks to the physical or mental health of the mother, rape, incest, or fetal malformation."

Commentary: Gorsuch may lean towards liberal thinking in some situations.  Therefore, he may become a hugequestion mark for those attempting to forecast his decisions should he become a member of the Supreme Court.  I personally don't feel I can trust him to be truly conservative based on some of the teachings of his Church.  vtb

The AMA’s Dangerous Slide - "The American Medical Association (AMA) is once again taking steps to move away from its long-standing opposition to doctor-assisted suicide.

Witches vs. Donald Trump: Massive Spell To Be Cast On President, Group Claims
- "There's a specific spell in the document, but its author noted that anyone could participate and modify the wording to fit their particular belief system."

Commentary:  Here is a DailyPrayer for Deliverance (approved for the laity) by the Roman Catholic Church to ward off all sorts of evil, including witchcraft:

My Lord, You are all powerful.  You are God. 
You are Father.
We beg You through the intercession and help
of the Archangels Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel
for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters
( name family members, friends and others who have strayed away from God)
who are enslaved by the Evil One.
All saints of Heaven, come to our aid.

From anxiety, sadness, and obsessions,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From hatred, fornication, envy,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From every thought of suicide and abortion,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From every form of sinful sexuality,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From every division in our family,
and every harmful friendship,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.
From every sort of evil spell, malefice, (evil spell) witchcraft, and every form of occult,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.

Lord, You who said, "I leave you peace, my peace I give you," grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell and enjoy Your peace always.
In the name of Christ, our Lord.  Amen


The true story behind the Marie Stopes eugenics trial of 1923  - "In the 1920s, a legal victory against the rising eugenic tide was won by a Catholic doctor over prominent birth control advocate Marie Stopes. While Stopes is lauded today at a feminist hero, the story of the eugenics libel trial has been largely overlooked."

Trump Reverses Rules On Transgender Students' Use Of Segrated Toilets
- "Donald Trump has scrapped landmark guidelines telling schools to let transgender students use toilets matching their gender identity rather than their gender at birth. The move reverses guidance introduced by the Obama administration and stands to inflame passions in the latest conflict between believers in traditional values and the socially progressive."

Commentary: In a true democracy you do not take away the rights of the majority to suit the assumed "rights" of a minority.  In addition, if a student or adult cannot make up his or her mind as to what sex they are, they need mental counseling because it has nothing to do with "saving lives," being "cruel" or "hurting" students or adults."  Realistically, there is no such person as a "transgender," you remain the sex you were at birth, your DNA remains the same.  vtb

Amazing! Trump Cuts US Debt by $12 Billion In His First Month
- "By comparison, under President Obama, the US Debt burden increased by more than $200 billion in his first month in office.  Obama increased the US Debt by 2% in his first month and signed the trillion dollar ‘Stimulus’ bill which is widely considered a colossal failure and waste of US tax dollars as well.  The failed ‘Stimulus’ did not kick in till later in Obama’s first year leading to Obama’s first year deficit of $1.4 trillion.  Overall Obama doubled the US Debt during his Presidency and set records for highest deficits and the largest debt increase by any President ever."

A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in France: January 2017
- "A van burns during a recent riot in a Paris suburb.  Car burnings, commonplace in France, are often attributed to rival Muslim gangs that compete with each other for the media spotlight. An estimated 40,000 cars are torched in France every year."

Iran ready to give U.S. 'slap in the face': commander
- "The United States should expect a "strong slap in the face" if it underestimates Iran's defensive capabilities, a commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday, as Tehran concluded war games."

Commentary: Warlike Muslim nations make a habit of playing poker and enjoy bluffing those they identify as their "enemies. In the process, they make fools of themselves.  vtb 

Fake News Drawn from a Flimsy Study
- "A recent study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics has caused a lot of buzz in the press. The study claims to trace the “Association Between State Same-Sex Marriage Policies and Adolescent Suicide Attempts” among LGBT youth and is being presented by the media as "proof" that gay marriage saves lives."

Commentary: "Fake news" means dishonest, or corrupted news by writers with those type moral credentials.  vtb

Ahead of September Election, Merkel’s Economic Advisor Slams Her Refugee Policy - "Merkel’s Refugee Policy to cost $400 billion, says Germany’s prominent economist Professor Hans-Werner Sinn."

Commentary: Why Merkel could not see the problems involving from allowing such large numbers of Muslims to integrate into Germany is beyond the scope of reasonable people. vtb

Visionaries’ Continue To See ‘Serious Times’
 - "The visionary, who was close to the late Ukrainian Catholic Bishop Roman Danylak of Toronto, said that matters in the world “will escalate to worse under the pretense of looking better. We must not lose sight of the fact that the devil is very cunning. That is where we have to watch and pray. The Catholic Church stands on solid ground.”

Commentary: Many people are becoming more and more aware of the dangerous times in which we live, and that Satan is working very hard to capture more and more souls so he can lead them into Hell.  vtb

A Journey Home
- "I live each day now and I am grateful. There is much more to my life than what I have shared, but sometimes we must endure that ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ and it is through the humbling of ourselves that we truly begin that conversation with God.  My ignorance, my arrogance, meI kept myself from God. I thank God for all I have been through, much of which I will probably never pen, but I am most grateful for God humbling Himself so much as to talk to me. It has been partly through this that I have begun to ponder how great His love really is."

NewTrump Deportation Rules Allow Far More Expulsions - "“The message is: The immigration law is back in business,” said Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which supports restricted immigration. “That violating immigration law is no longer a secondary offense.”

Commentary: Trump has always insisted they if immigrants come in to our country legally, they are welcomed.  It is only those who come across our borders illegally and those who commit crimes here that must be deported.  This makes sense to most Americans.  vtb

Trump’s open-door Oval Office
- "The new White House staff may have more access to the president than any in modern history."

North Korea Mocks China for ‘Dancing to U.S. Tune’
- "North Korea appeared to lash out at Beijing in a state-media commentary published Thursday, aiming unusually pointed rhetoric at a powerful neighbor that Pyongyang has long relied on for economic and diplomatic support."

Commentary: Foolish North Korea is playing with fire.  China is not "dancing to a U.S. tune," it as its own interests and especially its safety in mind.  vtb

Extreme slowdown of regulations in Trump's first month
- "The Trump administration has issued an average of 153 pages of rules in the Federal Register each day since the inauguration. That’s a steep 72 percent decline from the average of 542 pages federal agencies issued during President Obama’s final two months in office..."

7 killed in city’s deadliest day of shootings this year
- "Four other days this year have seen five fatal shootings, including last Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Chicago Sun-Times data. The other bursts of killings happened on Feb. 5 and Jan. 21, when 25 people were shot — the highest single-day toll of gunshot victims."

Commentary: Chicagoland has become CrimelandGuns play a huge role, but that is due to the huge numbers of people who lack any moral values. Guns by themselves don't kill, it takes the people who choose to use them who are responsible for the killings.  vtb


Swings And Gyrations And — Confusion: Our Strange Time
  "..controversies continue to surround the Holy Father as well as the U.S. president, who at times seem diametrically opposed to each other, though (can’t we all get along?) both know the Lord’s Prayer."

Commentary:  Of course I don't know them personally, and can only judge them by appearances based on what I have read about them or seen on TV, but I believe there is a good reason the two do not get along very well.  Pope Francis thinks like a liberal Democrat, except for abortion, homosexual marriage and one or two other things.  Trump is closer to a "progressive" Republican.  Francis likes to have things his way, but Trump is more flexible.  Francis likes to give his opinions about the domestic and foreign affairs of various countries (building a wall, immigrants) and at times those opinions can come across as interfering with that county's right to govern itself, much like the Vatican believes it has a right to govern itself without interference from other countries. 

While both can be tough on their "opponents," surprisingly, Trump is more forgiving and believes in reconciliation and only wants to be treated "fairly."  Francis can be very unforgiving towards those who disagree with him (Cardinal Burke) and has at times ignored the "mercy" he so often speaks of.  Francis of course, is far more knowledgeable about spiritual things, while Trump is naïve about those things, but has many friends who believe him to be very trustworthy.  Trump tries to speak clearly, but Francis often leaves you guessing.  I could go on with additional personality differences and I may revise this commentary later, but for now, hopefully I have provided you with some "food for thought."    vtb

Mary: The Promised Woman by Mother Angelica
 - "Editor’s note: This article is from a chapter in Mother Angelica on Christ and Our Lady, which is available from Sophia Institute Press."

How John Paul II infuriated the devil

8 Reasons Why You May Be Gaining Weight
- "Weight gain does not happen overnight. It often sneaks up on us, whether it be from overindulging a few too many times, skipping your weekly gym sessions, or a combination of several things. Wondering why you’re packing on the pounds?"

The Download—Tone-Deaf Bishops
- "There is a rape epidemic in Europe — and it's linked directly to the influx of Muslim migrants. But European politicians and American mainstream media and the U.S. bishops are refusing to acknowledge the obvious for reasons of political correctness."

Commentary: Our bishops are greatly influenced by Pope Francis who is also blind to what is going on in Europe.  vtb

Learning Persevering Prayer
- "Through prayer, we begin to comprehend what it means to be partakers of the divine nature. (2 Peter 1:4). Our life becomes a participation in the inner life of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit."

Virginia, South Dakota vote overwhelmingly to recognize porn as ‘public health crisis’
- "Following Utah's lead, two more states have acknowledged that pornography not only harms its users but has hit "crisis" levels in the United States."

Commentary: Porn is an addiction promoted by Google and other Search Engines, various magazines, television, and in the movies.  The love of money and greed are the underlying factors.   vtb

Cardinal Zen says ‘naïve’ Pope and bad advisors are betraying underground Church in China
- "Cardinal Joseph Zen says the Vatican is betraying Catholics living their faith out clandestinely in China."

Commentary: Pope Francis appears to desire "unity" for the sake of unity.  However, in the process he is ignoring the sacrifices made by many devout souls who are seeking to preserve their faith according to traditions in the Church.  vtb

Bill and Melinda Gates Will Push Population Control On 120 Million More Women by 2020 - "Gates’s renewed vigor for this mission is likely linked to the current political climate. After being sworn in, President Trump signed an executive order reinstating a so-called global gag rule, which prohibits U.S. funding to clinics that provide abortion services overseas, according to a report from The Hill...The billionaire family’s money goes to some of the largest abortion chains in the world, including Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes International."

Commentary: Approving of, and providing assistance for the murders of the unborn, and playing "God" has severe personal consequences and the day will come when those who do this will face God's severe judgement.  vtb

Jewish leader calls out Muslims and leftists for attacks on American Jews - "Rubin credited Trump for speaking “very clearly” on the eleven recent attacks on Jewish community centers across the country."

Commentary: The social climate, especially in Europe, has sunk into the filthy mud of anti-Semitism.  vtb

Why the Assault on Campus Free Speech Threatens Our Republic
- "Couple this with violent protests at the University of California, Berkeley, where protesters and masked agitators tore through the campus smashing windows, hurling Molotov cocktails, and attacking bystanders to disrupt a conservative speaker’s planned event, and you can see a growing problem: Campuses are becoming anti-free speech zones."

Commentary: Many universities & colleges are run by over-educated professors and attended by immature students.  vtb

The "Morality" of Self-Injury  - "Most people would instinctively recognize that people who engage in self-mutilation are mentally ill. That people doing these things need to be stopped. That cutting, scratching, burning, puncturing, piercing, carving, and/or hitting yourself is objectively not good, regardless of how “normal” or even “relieved” you might feel. That aiding or abetting such self-destructive behavior does its victim no favor."

Cardinal Müller Tightens His Blindfold
- "It is painful and infuriating to read the next assertion: "The Magisterium of the Pope is interpreted only by him or through the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. … It is not the bishops who interpret the Pope."

Commentary: Cardnal Muller is caught between a "rock and a hard place."  One the one hand he cannot help but comment on the confusion that resulted from the lack of clarification coming from Pope Francis.  On the other hand he feels he must be "loyal" to the pope.  Therefore, at times he must join the ranks of those who promote & defend this confusion.  vtb

SWEDEN RIOT: Police forced to shoot at protestors as violence erupts – yet PM is in denial
- "SWEDEN’S capital was plunged into chaos on Monday as police were forced to fire at rioters after a violence erupted in an area described as high risk."

Commentary: Dishonest politicians are very common in today's world, more so than they were in the past.  vtb

Iran’s Leader Urges “Palestinians” to Launch Violent Uprising Against Jewish State
- "Speaking at a recent conference in Tehran, Khamenei called for Israel’s destruction and referred to the Jewish state as a “cancerous tumor.”

Commentary: This so-called "leader" is mentally disturbed and totally immoral.  vtb


Flashback: Pope’s retreat preacher speaks on Antichrist as a ‘pacifist, ecologist and ecumenist’
-"That article was widely quoted at the time and for good reason as you will see."

Commentary: Ironically, a partial description of Pope Francis.  vtb

Saul Alinsky’s most famous disciple
- "First, Francis insisted that “Muslim terrorism does not exist.”

Commentary: A very inaccurate analysis by Pope Francis that ignores the truth.  vtb

'It gives the feeling of schism': panel at EWTN analyzes the current 'disaster' in the Church
- "Raymond Arroyo, Father Gerald Murray, a lawyer in canon law, and Robert Royal of The Catholic Thing, presented a grim analysis of the confusion caused by Amoris Laetitia."

Pope Francis Praises Soros-Funded Organization; Encourages “Resistance”
 - "What Pope Francis does not mention here is that PICO is heavily funded by George Soros.. a group that “uses Alinsky-style organizing tactics to advance the doctrines of the religious left.”

Commentary: The Vatican is not doing its homework and  checking out the background of these type left-wing organizations.  The result is more scandal.  vtb

Cardinal Müller: The Catholic Church is not a 'Papal Church' - "In the spirit of the new evangelization, the bishops, the synods and the bishops 'congregations must also have a greater responsibility."

Commentary: To decentralize is good, but it must be done with the help of the Holy Spirit, and not just opinions.  vtb

Pence Asked to Assure NATO That 'Freedom of the Press Is Not Under Attack in the United States'
"Trump made headlines on Saturday, when he told a rally in Melbourne, Fla., "The fake news media -- failing "New York Times," NBC News, ABC, CBS, CNN, is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people."

Commentary: In other words, it is OK for the news media to attack Trump, but not OK for Trump to defend himself.   vtb

Sending the Words of St. John Paul II Down the Memory Hole

Trump, one month in
- "It's sometimes been difficult to tell what's actually happening, and to put things in perspective, partly because Washington's news media have gotten so many stories wrong, and partly because politicians of both parties have overreacted to every move by the other side."

The media doesn’t call the shots — Trump does

Trump Is Right: The Palestinians Must Earn a Two-State Solution
- "President Trump raised eyebrows when he mentioned the possibility of a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The context was ambiguous, and no one can know for sure what message he was intending to convey. One possibility is that he was telling Palestinian leader that if they wanta two-state solution, they have to do something; they have to come to the negotiating table with the Israelis, and make the kinds of painful sacrifices that will be required from both sides for a peaceful resolution to be achieved."

What Do We Know About Refugees?
- "Muslim refugees, when they become eligible to vote, overwhelmingly support the Democratic Party and remain on public assistance. Christians, on the other hand, are more likely to vote with the Republican Party and become self-sufficient. Tragically, this could be one of the major reasons persecuted minority Christians were basically ignored these past eight years."

PLEASE NOTE: As you are aware, the Lord has many ways to reach us, we simply have to be open to His Word and be obedient to the Warnings He gives us:  

"Dearly beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits if they be of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1).

"Today if you shall hear his voice, (The Holy Spirit) Harden not your hearts" (Hebrews 3:7-8).

MIRARI VOS (On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism) by Pope Gregory XVI- Encyclical of Pope Gregory SVI promulgated on 15 August 1832.

Commentary:  Pope Gregory XVI was a great reformer and spoke with authority on a number of subjects - a true spiritual leader of the Church.  vtb


The ‘Francis effect’ is silencing Catholic bishops, priests, and laity - "In the sixteenth century, Melchior Cano, a Spanish theologian at the Council of Trent, warned against obsequiousness regarding the pope: 'Now it can be said briefly that those who defend blindly and indiscriminately any judgment whatsoever of the Supreme Pontiff concerning every matter weaken the authority of the Apostolic See; they do not support it; they subvert it; they do not fortify it. … Peter has no need of our lies; he has no need of our adulation.'  

In our time, the 1983 Code of Canon Law also recognizes the right of the faithful in this regard where it states that 'according to the knowledge, competence, and prestige which they possess… the faithful have the right and even at times the duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church and to make their opinion known to the rest of the Christian faithful…'" (§ 212:3).

Pope Benedict XVI's Warning:  "The attacks on the  Pope and the Church do not just come from outside, but the sufferings of the Church come precisely from within the Church, from the sin that is in the Church.  This has always been known, but today we see it in a really terrifying way:

The greatest persecution of the Church does not come from external enemies, but is born from the sin in the Church.  
The Church, therefore, has the profound need to learn penance again, to accept  purification, to learn on one hand forgiveness, as well as the need for justice.  Forgiveness does not replace  justice."

APPARITION of the BLESSED VIRGIN on the Mountain of LA SALETTE, the 19th of September, 1846 (Includes End Times Prophecy)


THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS - "Remain in the state of grace.  Go to Mass, and regularly receive Holy Communion.  Say your Rosary every day.  Obtain some (blessed) wax candles... Pray for the Church and for the Pope in particular; it is not for us to judge the Pope, no matter what he does or says, - this is God’s prerogative, but we must pray for him.  Say the prayer to St. Michael which Leo XIII composed after witnessing a terrifying vision of Satan’s power... Deny yourself some legitimate pleasures and entertainment; many seers insist on this.  Eat sparingly, frugally, to sustain life more than to gratify the palate."

Commentary:  CAUTION: There are a lot of websites that speak of the Three Days of Darkness and some writers, although perhaps with good intentions or because they are simply misguided, can lead you into a fearful state of confusion by publishing false revelations and prophecies not approved by the Church.  vtb

The Five Beasts of St. Hildegard: Prophetic Symbols of Modern Society - "The five symbolic beasts in St. Hildegard’s vision, the Fiery Dog, the Yellow Lion, the Pale Horse, the Black Pig, and the Grey Wolf, represent unique and brief historical periods which follow in a specific sequence. They also represent a specific sin evident in the social context of each period. This affliction of evil is engineered by Satan and intended to progressively damage the Church in preparation of the coming of the Antichrist.  In my book, The Five Beasts of St. Hildegard: Prophetic Symbols of Modern Society, I demonstrate that the first three eras have already passed and that we are currently in the latter half of the fourth era, that of the Black Pig. The only one left is the era of the Grey Wolf and unlike the previous four, in which we could compare Hildegard’s description of the era to past history, we can only take her description and make educated guesses as to how the era will play out."

"My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee above all things and I desire Thee in my soul.

THE MANSIONS OF THE LORD (MUSIC VIDEO) - Beautiful tribute to our fallen soldiers! (Includes additional videos).  As a veteran, (Berlin Wall Crisis - Vietnam) it brought tears to my eyes when I thought about the sufferings of my fallen brothers and their families.  I hope it also touches your heart!

What Did the Saints Say about Islam? - "The hour cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doth a service to God.  And these things will they do to you because they have not known the Father, nor me.  But these things I have told you, that when the hour shall come, you may remember that I told you of them."  (John 16:2-4)

Commentary:  We must not be fooled or be naive about Islam.  Although there are many good Muslims, as we are experiencing, things change rapidly when they are in the majority, rather than the minority.  Muslims are strongly influenced by their religious leaders who control their country or the region they occupy. 

Unfortunately, many of their leaders are basically radical in their beliefs and have no conscience when it comes to persecuting, torturing, or killing those of other Faiths who choose not to convert to their Islamic religion.  However, as we have experienced, even when Muslims are in the minority, radical elements of their population will commit grave acts of terrorism as shown in some of the below reports.  vtb

Indicting Christ With the Atrocities of Islam - "The Bible is a threat to liberal, leftist dogma because it is truth that diametrically opposes the humanist statism that is the utopia of the American left.  Atrocities committed by Islamists are met with only nervous smiles or with blathering inanities about jobs for ISIS because Islam is not an American institution to be dismantled.  Liberals rush to smear all of Christendom with the ancient history of the Inquisition because Christian doctrine opposes their deification of the state. And, dredging up the corpse of the Crusades is intellectual so long as it bashes the faith of countless Christians."
Also see:  The Battle over the Crusades - "The Crusades, of course, are a far more complicated series of events in history than the anti-Catholic statements of early Protestant historians would suggest. The Crusades should be understood within the context of the times and by their reality, rather than through the myths created for purposes of propaganda."

Traditional Latin Mass & the Highway to Hell (YouTubeVideo)  - One of the best and most easily understood explanations of the need for the Latin or Traditional Mass and the errors of the new Mass

Commentary:  CAUTION: Some videos that follow this video are not recommended.  They contain "schismatic behavior" and attacks against the Holy Father, some of which involve mockery.  Therefore they require discernment, for they (perhaps unknowingly), come across as "radical" or uncharitable and can potentially cause great harm to the unity of the Church.

There is nothing wrong with sharing your opinions with family and friends through "round table" discussions or emails, but when you form an organization without proper spiritual advisers and then publicly make known opinions that may not correspond to Church teachings, you are creating scandal, and that is not to be taken lightly.  Never rely solely on lay people.  There are many conservative cardinals and bishops (Cardinal Burke, etc.) who by their example of obedience and loyalty to the Church, that will provide you with the correct manner of expressing your opinions.  If you don't do this you will quickly lose your "moral credentials" and do more damage to your cause than good.   

Yes, there are many liturgical abuses being committed by the clergy in relation to how they "pray" the new Mass and/or ignore the Traditional Latin Mass.  However, the Lord knows this and those lax priests and bishops will face a severe judgment if they do not change.  Holy Mass is the center of our faith, and when it is prayed poorly or "staged" to appear like a "social event," this causes many people (especially our youth) to lose respect for our priests and bishops.  Therefore, the young drift away from attending Mass as soon as they reach adulthood.  The Commandments become "up-for-grabs" and are viewed as "options" and not as true Commandments from the Lord

Knowledge of what is going on in the Church and of the Word of God no longer becomes a priority, and people drift into a spiritually lukewarm state without realizing the harm it causes their souls or the souls of others.  Then, not only the Church, but all mankind suffers the consequences resulting in wars, persecutions, riots, disasters, and other forms of sufferings.  As confirmed by the teachings of the Church, and numbers of saints, the importance of the clergy and laity truly participating at Holy Mass in a devout manner cannot be overstated.  vtb

LORD OF THE WORLD: POPE ENDORSED PROPHETIC NOVEL WITH WARNING OF APOSTASY, ANTI-CHRIST, WORLD GOVERNMENT - "This the novel that Pope Francis recommends -- as a warning.  A final attack occurs just as the last of the faithful, having taken vows to die in the name of faith, are singing the Tantum Ergo.  The last words of the novel: 'Then the world passed, and the glory of it.'  (Resources:  free version of  Lord of the World)."

The Secret of the Poor Souls in Purgatory - An interview with Maria Simma of Austria - "Since 1940 (she was then aged 25), a privileged soul, named Maria Simma, has had regular visits from the souls in Purgatory to explain their sufferings and to ask for prayers and Masses to be released from Purgatory.

What Catholics believe: 10 truths about purgatory - "Does purgatory still exist? Even though we don’t hear about it as much as in earlier times, Catholics do believe in purgatory. It is a matter of faith, supported by the Bible and tradition, clarified at the Council of Florence in 1439 and the Council of Trent (1545-1563) and explained in the Catechism of the Catholic Church."

What does Our Lady say about Purgatory? - "There are many souls in Purgatory. There are also persons who have been consecrated to God – some priests, some religious.  Pray for their intentions, at least the Lord’s Prayer, the Hail Mary and the Glory Be, seven times each, and the Creed.  I recommend it to you. There is a large number of souls who have been in Purgatory a long time because no one prays for them." 

Pope Francis and Economic Justice by Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia - "I think it would be a mistake to describe him (Pope Francis) as a 'liberal' — much less a 'Marxist.'  As I told the Italian newspaper La Stampa in an interview some weeks ago, words like “liberal” and 'conservative' don’t describe Catholic belief. They divide what shouldn’t be divided.

We should love the poor and love the unborn child. Service to the oppressed and service to the family; defense of the weak  and defense of the unborn child; belief in the value of business and belief in restraints on predatory business practices — all these things spring from the same Catholic commitment to human dignity.

There’s nothing 'progressive' about killing an unborn human child or allowing it to happen.  And there’s nothing 'conservative' about ignoring the cries of the poor."

DEATH OF LONG ISLAND MAN TIED TO ALLEGED SPANISH APPARITIONS PUTS ACCENT ON A HOST OF MYSTERIES - "Garabandal  has always been a supreme mystery.  I visited there in the early 1990s, staying at a bed-and-breakfast owned by the uncle of reputed seer Conchita Gonzalez -- a wonderful man in this exquisitely beautiful, towering spot in the Cantabrian Mountains of north-central Spain. At one point during the day, I was the only pilgrim there (later joined by an American). Something surely happened here."
Journey to heaven, hell, purgatory After a near-fatal motorcycle crash 30 years ago, priest said guardian angel showed him the afterlife - "'In  HELL: They had seemed very holy on Earth, but it was  hypocrisy.  It was sad; I felt sorry for them,' he said. Numbered among the lost souls were priests and bishops who were not faithful to their calling as shepherds. He also noted a great deal of hatred  and in-fighting that occurred between the eternally condemned.'"
Saving Catholic Culture from Destruction - "In centuries past, those seeking to level or confiscate sacred edifices were the Church’s sworn   adversaries, who tried to storm her fortresses and attack her from without.  In this, our own day, however, there are Catholics in many places whose biggest perennial fear is not savage invasion, but the euthanizing of their parish at the hands of their very own bishops and pastors. Is it not time for an honest  recognition and acknowledgement of the deep spiritual and psychological harm caused by this phenomenon?"
Fatima Still Matters - "In Fatima, two anti-Catholic socialist newspapers sent reporters to witness how foolish it was that so many people came out believing there would be a miracle. Instead, the papers carried reports of an amazing miracle  witnessed by all who were there."
9 truths about purgatory - "What Catholics need to know about the ‘anteroom of heaven.’" 
WHILE MOST PASSAGES TO THE OTHER SIDE ARE FILLED WITH A SENSE OF PEACE, THERE ARE DARK, EVEN SCARY EXCEPTIONS - "I felt some type of dark cloud present in the room.  The lights grew dimmer, and the temperature  plummeted. The room was  freezing cold  as though the temperature had instantly dropped a hundred degrees. The warmth I'd come to expect when Heaven's door  opened seemed to have been replaced by the opening of a liquid nitrogen canister. The room appeared dark and shadowy, as if it were being swallowed by a  black abyss."
THE "SMOKE OF SATAN" IS BECOMING A RAGING FIRE! - "For the good of the Catholic faithful and all people, the Church provides clear teaching concerning  Satanic worship. This activity separates people from God and the human community, it is  contrary to charity and goodness, and it places participants dangerously close to destructive works of evil."

Devil is working hard on securing end times - "Pope Francis is not shy about preaching on how the battle between good and evil has already begun."

Commentary: Some believe we are at the BEGINNING of the end times and a Great Chastisement awaits us if we do not turn back to the Lord. The intensity of that Chastisement depends upon the number who repent and try to live by God's Word and the teachings of His Church, rather than living by man's word and the teachings of the world.  I share their belief.  vtb 

"Love not the world, nor the things which are in the world. If any man love the world, the charity of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, is the concupiscence of the flesh, & the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life, which is not of the Father, but is of the world." 
(1 John 2:15)

"We adore Thee, we bless Thee, & we thank Thee O Christ, because by Thy Holy Cross & Thy great sufferings, Thou has redeemed  the world!"

"Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature.  And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.  
And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty,  inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents.
God delivered them up: Not by being author of their sins, but by withdrawing his grace, and so permitting them, in punishment of their pride, to fall into those shameful sins.
Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy.  Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent (approve of their actions) to them that do them." 
(Romans 1:25-32)
 "O how good an sweet is thy spirit, O Lord, in all things!  And therefore thou  chastisest  them that err, by little and little; and  admonish them, and speakest to them, concerning the things wherein they offend; that leaving their wickedness, they may believe in thee, O Lord...
Because they did works hateful to thee...  merciless MURDERERS OF THEIR OWN CHILDREN... (ABORTION).  Wherefore thou hast also greatly tormented them who in their life have lived foolishly and unjustly, by the same things which they worshiped.  For they went astray for a long time in the  ways of error, holding those things for gods (material things) which are the most worthless among beasts, living after the manner of children without understanding
Therefore thou hast sent a judgment upon them... they suffered by those very things which they took for gods..." (the loss of material things).
(Wisdom 12:1-2,4-5,23-25,27)
"Know also this, that, in the LAST DAYS, shall come dangerous  times.  Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proudblasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, Without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent,  unmerciful, without kindness. Traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures more than of GodHaving an appearance indeed of godliness, but denying the power thereof.  Now these (people) AVOID."
(2 Timothy 3:1-5)
I feel it very important that I share this spiritual information and I hope that you will not be offended by my efforts.  No matter what the level of your faith or your religion, please take the time to listen to this man whether you believe all that he says or not.  As it did mine, It will greatly benefit your soul and make it much easier to understand the holy path we all must take to be worthy of Heaven.  Thank you and  God bless you!

Four common tactics of the devil - Deception - Division - Diversion - Discouragement -  "The devil deceives us with many false and empty promises. Most of these relate to the lie  that we will be happier and more fulfilled if we  sin, or deny aspects of the truth.  
Whatever passing pleasures  come with sin, they are in fact passing. Great and accumulated  suffering eventually comes with almost all sinful activity. Yet, despite this experience, we human beings remain very  gullible, we seem to love empty promises and put all sorts of false hopes of them.... 
So many things help drive this division, and the devil surely taps into them all: anger, past hurts, resentments, fears, misunderstandings, greed, pride, and arrogance. There is also the impatience that we so easily develop regarding those we love, and the flawed notion that somehow, other more perfect and desirable people should be sought. 
And thus many abandon their marriages, family, churches and communities, always in search of the elusive goal of finding better and more perfect people and situations...  
The devil causes us to fixate on fears about passing things, and thereby not to have a proper fear of the judgment which awaits us. 
Jesus says:  "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in Hell."  (Matt 10:28) 
Satan temps us to impatience with our self or others. And, in our aspirations, expected in unreasonably quick time, there comes a lack of charity toward our self or others. Some grow discouraged with themselves or others and give up on the  pursuit of holiness. Others give up on the  Church because of the imperfections found there."
foresaw that after a pope associated with the sun (John Paul II was born and his funeral was on the day of an eclipse, and he was closely tied to Fatima, where there was the famous sun miracle) there would be just two popes left; one would come as a pope de gloria olivae,  'from the glory of the olive.'  
St. Benedict and the popes who took his name have often been associated with peace-making (the olive branch) and St. Benedict's very order, the Benedictines, are also known as 'Olivetans' and has an olive branch as its symbol."


"Told by Our Lord  that her gift of seeing the past, present, and future in mystic visions  was greater than that possessed by anyone else in history."

 The Servant of God - Luisa Piccarreta, Little Daughter of The Divine Will - The highest spiritual state you can achieve here on earth.  "Everything is in the Divine Will; therefore It wants to love together with you, and if you call It, It gives you Its Love in your power in order to be loved; It gives you Its sanctity to make yourself a saint, Its light to make Itself  known and to eclipse your weaknesses, miseries and passions, so that they may no longer have life in you, but only Its Willlaying and forming Its Life in your little act…"

Luisa Piccarreta being Slandered - Commentary: There is some controversy  concerning the promotion and/or spiritual practices connected with the Luisa Piccarreta's writings about the Kingdom of the Divine Will.  Luisa's Cause for Beatification is now being investigated through the Magisterium of the Church.  Unfortunately, her good name is being slandered and her "Cause"  being scandalized by numbers of "Catholics"  through various means, such as websites and articles in Catholic magazines or other news sources. vtb

Commentary: Knowing the mental and physical condition of Pope John Paul II in the months preceding his death, it appears that Pope Benedict XVI drew a comparison to his own mental and physical condition.  
This does not mean he felt Pope John was not efficiently  carrying out his duties because his illness was of a different nature.  It means that although Pope John Paul II may have assumed he had little time left, Pope Benedict  feels his remaining time on this earth is unknown.  
Therefore he feels he can best  serve the Church in a different capacity  while  allowing another, who is in a far better state of health, to assume the heavy responsibilities of his Holy Office
We owe it to this humble man  (Pope Benedict XVI) to pray for him so he will have peace and strength in his remaining days on earth.  
However, we are especially grateful that God has granted us another holy Pope to continue to bring about the renewal of His Church in these dangerous times where the light of true faith is growing dimmer and dimmer.   vtb

Benedict XVI prays penultimate Angelus: “The time of testing is here, let us focus on God again” - "'The time of testing is here. We must not use God for our own ends. Resignation is a testimony of faith.  Don’t be afraid to fight the evil spirit, what is important is that we do it alongside Christ the Victor,' the Pope said during today’s Angelus before a crowd of 50 thousand faithful, urging them to turn to 'the Mother Mary.'  
'Let us trust in the intercession of the Virgin Mary in this time of testing,' he added.  'Through her we will feel the powerful presence of  His Divine Son, so we may ward off temptation with the Word of Christ  and place God at the centre of our lives.  
We must reject the false images of the Messiah as Jesus did when faced with the temptations the Temptor presented Him with, the most serious of which is using God for one’s own ends,' Benedict XVI said during the course of the Angelus prayer."
