Their votes put them at odds with not just the general public, but Democratic voters. A vast majority of voters, including those who identify as pro-choice, support providing care to newborns who survive abortion; 70 percent of Democrats, 75 percent of independents, and 86 percent of Republicans back the policy, according to the McLaughlin & Associates poll commissioned by the pro-life Susan B.

"MILAN, Italy, June 7, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Catholics should follow Pope St. John Paul II's example of kneeling before the Blessed Sacrament, Cardinal Robert Sarah said, noting that the late pope knelt even until his last days.  The cardinal also highlighted St. Teresa of Calcutta's reverence for the Eucharist, noting that she once said nothing brought her more sadness than Communion on the hand.   Sarah spoke Tuesday at the 2017 Sacra Liturgica conference in Milan about "the beauty, appropriateness, and pastoral value" of receiving Holy Communion kneeling and on the tongue. Sarah is the Prefect for the Congregation for Divine Worship, essentially making him the Vatican's liturgy chief."

"A battalion of Marines who served in the Vietnam War was determined to see their leader, Sergeant John Canley (a gunnery sergeant at the time), receive the Medal of Honor for service, for his leadership during the war’s week-long, bloody Battle of Hue in 1968.  After their commander was seriously injured, Canley, of 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, immediately took control to help and protect his men. Although wounded by shrapnel himself, he did not allow his injuries to deter him. He led an operation that vanquished the enemy, saved dozens of lives, and helped get his wounded men to safety when the battle was over."

A PATRIOTIC GESTURE - Trump Wants To Forgive Student Loans For Disabled Veterans - 

The U.S. Department of Education will partner with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to help streamline the process for disabled veterans to have their student loan debt cancelled.  “Our nation’s veterans have sacrificed much for our country," U.S. Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement. "It is important that, in return, we do all we can to give them the support and care they deserve. Simplifying the loan forgiveness process and proactively identifying veterans with federal student loans who may be eligible for a discharge is a small but critical way we can show our gratitude for veterans’ service.”

"Judicial Watch announced today that in June Kentucky mailed address confirmation notices to 250,000 voters who are believed to have moved, thanks to a consent judgment agreed to by the Commonwealth. These registrations are probably outdated and will be cancelled if the voters fail to vote in future elections or to confirm their current addresses.  The Judicial Watch victory in Kentucky is in addition to the Judicial Watch victory in California, where up to 1.6 million inactive names are set to be removed from voter registration rolls in Los Angeles County.  In the consent judgment, Kentucky acknowledges that the state is not in compliance with the National Voter Registration Act..."

PUBLIC WANTS A DEEPER LOOK Poll: Overwhelming Majority Wants Investigation into Obama DOJ Spying on Trump - 

"...“69% think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department's inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans.” In other words, an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that the Obama Justice Department’s actions in 2016 should be investigated.  The American people want answers about the Steele dossier, the FISA court approval of the wiretap, everything. What did Obama know, and when did he know it? Why did the Obama administration not do more to prevent or stop Russian cyber attacks?"

PARENTS NEEDED - Trump encourages adoption: It ‘signals every child – born or unborn – is wanted and loved’ - 

“Adoption is a blessing for all involved. It provides needed relief to birth parents, who may not, for whatever reason, be in a position to raise a child,” the president said Wednesday. “It fosters loving homes for children. It enables individuals to grow their families and share their love. And it fosters strong families, which are integral to ensuring strong communities and a resilient country.”

SAVED BY A TRUE MOTHER- Mom With Cancer Who Refused Abortion and Chemo Gives Birth to Healthy Twins - 

"Doctors urged the 35-year-old from Portsmouth, England to abort her unborn babies so surgeons could remove the cancer, according to The Sun. But Anderson refused.  Today, her twins Buddy and Preslee are 6 months old and doing well. Anderson said she is so glad she chose life for her twins, and refused to take her doctors’ advice."

A BLIND P0PE LEADING BLIND U.S. BISHOPS - US bishops side with globalists in condemning Trump’s border wall - 

“We are deeply concerned about the President’s action to fund the construction of a wall along the U.S./Mexico border, which circumvents the clear intent of Congress to limit funding of a wall,” the joint statement read.  “The wall first and foremost is a symbol of division and animosity between two friendly countries. We remain steadfast and resolute in the vision articulated by Pope Francis that at this time we need to be building bridges and not walls.”

NOT VERY TRANSPARENT The scandal in Washington no one is talking about - 

"The deadly-but-forgotten government gun-running scandal known as “Fast and Furious” has lain dormant for years, thanks to White House stonewalling and media compliance. But newly uncovered emails have reopened the case, exposing the anatomy of a cover up by an administration that promised to be the most transparent in history."

GETTING CLOSER TO JESUS - Perpetual Adoration, the closest thing to walking with Jesus - 

"Eucharistic Adoration is a deeply personal method of prayer that many saints have recommended over the past few centuries. It consists of visiting a church or small chapel to adore Jesus Christ, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. As Catholics we believe that “The Eucharistic presence of Christ begins at the moment of the consecration and endures as long as the Eucharistic species subsist."

"Vicky Harper, age 24, was struggling financially when she found out she was pregnant with her third child. Worried and afraid, she decided that she should abort her baby, rather than raise a third child under the age of five.  Her boyfriend Kennan McIvor, age 19, assured her that he would take care of her and the baby, but Harper was set on aborting."

ARCHIVED NEWS, BUT STILL REVELANT - School stops enforcing Obama’s trans bathroom policy after parents pulled kids out - 

"A Michigan school district has stopped the practice of allowing members of one biological sex to use the restrooms of the opposite sex after parents pulled their two sons out of elementary school over the issue."


"Extremely intense and relentless spiritual warfare.  That’s how we really need to see the work of praying and interceding for the president of our nation.  We need to pray for him and all other leaders as well.  We need to see the critical importance of the church in prayer doing kingdom work for God."

GOOD COMPETITION - Republican Immigrant From Jamaica To Challenge Ocasio-Cortez In 2020 - 

"A Republican immigrant businesswoman active in politics launched a campaign Wednesday to run against current Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2020.  Scherie Murray, an immigrant from Jamaica, is the fifth Republican to file for Ocasio-Cortez’s seat. The other Republicans are former police officer John Cummings, construction contractor Miguel Hernandez, medical journalist Ruth Papzian and entrepreneur Antoine Tucker, Fox reported.

AN ATTACK AGAINST EWTN By NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER, A LEFT WING NEWSPAPER EWTN: connected to conservative Catholic money, anti-Francis elements - 

"This series represents a continuation of NCR's look at the effect of money, largely making its way through the expanding and uniquely American non-profit system, on the Catholic narrative both inside the church and beyond. EWTN is one of the major vehicles for that narrative."

COMMENTARY:  The National "Catholic" Reporter has for years distorted the Voice of the Church.  They did not fair well under Saint John Paul II or Benedict XV, but now under the liberal Pope Francis they have become more bold, and unashamed to show their true Left Wing colors.  vtb

BREAKING THE LAW TO BECOME LEGAL? - Words Matter’: Democratic Congressman Wants To Officially Abolish The Words ‘Illegal Alien’ -

3 September, 2017(Book) Pope says marriage can only be between a man and a woman and ‘we cannot change it’ - 

"By virtue of its very definition, marriage can only be between a man and a woman, Pope Francis has said in a new book-length interview.  “We cannot change it. This is the nature of things,” not just in the Church, but in human history," he said in a series of interviews with Dominique Wolton, a 70-year-old French sociologist and expert in media and political communication.  Published in French, the 417-page book, Politique et Société (“Politics and Society”) will be released on September 6, 2017."

COMMENTARY:  Francis covers many subjects, but on the grave moral issue of homosexuality, he is silent except for the teaching on same sex marriages - He conveniently avoids giving the Word of Almighty God on the evil of homosexual relations.  That is not the mark of a good shepherd.  The Church needs firm, clear teachings.  And why would you "bury" your teachings in a book written by another individual?  In addition, Francis is rather vague as to his explanations on the following issues:

"Church leaders are used to “frozen norms” and “fixed standards”, but when they ask, ‘Can we give Communion to divorcees?’ I reply, ‘Speak with the divorced man and woman, welcome, accompany, integrate and discern”, which opens a path and a way of communication to lead people to Christ."

So is giving Holy Communion to divorced  people who have not received an annulment according to God's Law and the teachings & tradition of the Church?   Unlike Saint Pope John Paul II (who did not agree with him), Francis skirts around this question and does not give a clear answer.  If there are no "norms" to follow, then every moral issue is open to interpretation and may be applied on an individual basis, and not a uniform basis.  

That can only result in confusion which is now happening in the Church due to this type of "cloudy" thinking.  The consequences being that every doctrine and traditional teaching can now be questioned with (following the example of Pope Francis), liberal ideas being preferred over previously clear and organized teachings.  
   
When asked about the Church’s “just war” theory, the Pope said the issue should be looked into because “no war is just. The only just thing is peace.”

This is not a Church teaching, its an opinion.  Of course there are "just" wars.  All nations have the right to defend themselves and help conquer evil men who would enslave or destroy their country. 

The Pope praised those psychoanalysts who are able to be “open to humanism and to dialogue with other sciences," particularly medicine and homeopathy.  “Those whom I have known have helped me a lot at one point in my life when I needed consultation,” he said, describing how met with a Jewish psychoanalyst once a week for six months when he was 42 “to clear up certain things."

Without question, psychoanalysts are able to help people. but why would a priest who is confused about his life need the advice of a psychoanalyst?  Is not the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Holy Rosary, the Holy Bible, and the sanctifying grace received from a good Confession and the reception of Holy Communion enough to bring an individual the wisdom needed to overcome his doubts about his life and the Mission God has given him?  And if these are not enough, why not seek the advice of a holy priest?  Unless a  "psychoanalyst" is a truly holy individual, deeply familiar with your Catholic Faith, your not going to receive spiritual wisdom, but the wisdom the world teaches.  vtb

ALSO SEE:

"Their dour, unsmiling archbishop was turned overnight into the smiling, jolly Pope Francis, the idol of the people with whom he so fully identifies. If you speak to anyone  working in the Vatican, they will tell you about the miracle in reverse. When the  publicity cameras are off him, Pope Francis  turns into a different  figure:  arrogant, dismissive of people, prodigal of bad language and notorious for furious outbursts of temper which are known to everyone from the cardinals to the chauffeurs."

COMMENTARY: It may not all be true, but there is a significant amount of information and testimonies that provide ample evidence of the true character of Pope Francis.  vtb

"But it is not only the world which lives in the frenzy and in the vapid and demagogic discourse. The Church herself, in her  doctrinal and moral teaching, lives today in a cacophony, in the confusion of theses, in the duplicity, in the double or triple truth, in an avalanche of  interpretations and a pastoral demagogy which one could consider to be a great ecclesiastical disorder."

"In the present moment there is confusion and error about the most fundamental teachings of the Church, for example with regard to marriage and the family.  For instance, the idea that people who are living in an irregular union could receive the sacraments is a violation of the truth with regard both to the indissolubility of marriage and to the  sanctity of the Eucharist."

COMMENTARY: Yes Francis, that is true. The Left is always looking for "new ways" to slander people, change history and traditions, weaken or destroy the family, kill and murder the unborn, and tell lies to the general public.  This is the Francis we are up against.  Therefore, we must pray for his soul everyday, whether it be at Holy Mass, through the Holy Rosary, or the Divine Mercy Prayers.  vtb
 
COMMENTARY: Dear Francis, when you excuse, tolerate, or sympathize with evil, you become a part of it.   vtb

NOT SOMETHING OBAMA AND HIS FELLOW DEMOCRATS WANT TO HEARObama's Ex-boyfriend testimony, unseen video, Obama is (was?) gay and smokes (smoked?) crack - 

"This video is from a press conference of Larry Sinclair about his interactions with president Obama."

THE GREAT DECEIVER -  Black Pastor: Obama ‘Deceived America,’ Hurt ‘the American Family’ - 

“When President Obama was running for president, I had some friends in the gay community who informed me that he was going to say that he was for marriage between a man and a woman in his first term to get elected but he would take the issue up in his second term, and that’s what he did. So first of all, he deceived America,” Owens said.

SO CALLED "MARRIAGES" BETWEEN THOSE OF THE SAME SEX ARE NOT TRUE MARRIAGES IN THE SIGHT OF ALMIGHTY GOD - 10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed - 

"1.  It Is Not Marriage - Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and well being of the spouses."

DIFFICULT, SAD CASE - The (then) teenager convicted in a controversial suicide texting case has appealed to the US Supreme Court

"In 2014,  when Michelle Carter was 17 years old, she encouraged her 18-year-old boyfriend Conrad Roy III to kill himself via text message, both in the days leading up to his death and as he was attempting suicide. She was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2017 in a Massachusetts juvenile court. The ruling set an unusual precedent. Her words, written at a distance, were considered criminal acts. That decision was upheld by Massachusetts appeals courts. Now she’s challenging the conviction again."

ANOTHER FALLEN SILENT HERO -  Decorated Green Beret killed in Afghanistan remembered as 'beloved warrior' - 

"A decorated Green Beret on his seventh combat tour was identified Sunday as the U.S. service member killed in action in Afghanistan.  Sgt. Maj. James “Ryan” Sartor, 40, of Teague, Texas, died Saturday in Faryab Province “as a result of injuries sustained from enemy small arms fire during combat operations,” the Pentagon said.  "We’re incredibly saddened," said Sartor’s commander Col. Brian Rauen, KKTV reported. "Ryan was a beloved warrior who epitomized the quiet professionals. He led his soldiers from the front, and his presence will be terribly missed."

POOR FIGHTERS - Dems, opponents of the Census citizenship question have won the battle – and lost the war - 

"Democrats thought they had scored a historic victory with their cynical ploy to run out the clock so that the Trump administration wouldn’t have time to add a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. census.  They were wrong.  The opponents of the census question perverted the American legal system in order to get what they thought they wanted – and President Trump just turned their efforts into a giant “own goal.”

SHOULD BE A HOLY DAY - Why the Lord’s Day should be separate from the weekend - 

"In 1998, St. John Paul II wrote an entire apostolic letter on “The Lord’s Day,” in which he expounded on the Catholic observance of the Sabbath and what that looks like in the modern world.  It is a remarkable letter that reflects on the recent cultural shift away from a more deliberate observance of Sunday as a special day of prayer and rest."

POPE FRANCIS CONTRADICTS THE WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD - Pope Francis the Inevitable - 

"Popularly endorsed one-liners and striking gestures have been the hallmark of his pontificate right from Day 1, March 13, 2013, when Jorge Mario Cardinal Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina, was elected Pope in succession to Benedict XVI.  According to a Chilean sexual abuse victim, Juan Carlos Cruz, Pope Francis told him during a private meeting at the Vatican that his being homosexual was OK."

COMMENTARY:  Pope Francis has caused great scandal that has spread throughout the Christian and secular world.  His approval of homosexual lifestyles is a grave, grave sin,  as well as his refusal to condemn the U.S. Democratic Party for their approval of First Degree Murder right up to, and even after the birth of a child!  He will face a severe Judgement from the Lord if he does not repent and change his ways.  He needs many, many prayers for his conversion because of the hardness of his heart.    vtb

AN ACCURATE OPINION? - Google VP Karan Bhatia: Google isn't politically biased and doesn't censor conservative speech - 

"I believe that the Internet and products like Search and YouTube have created opportunities for the expression of diverse political views and a more dynamic political discourse in America – for the benefit of everyone."

COMMENTARY:  Misleading statements?    To test her honesty, run a search on Google on a conservative topic and see how many liberal opinions pop up.  vtb

BUY AMERICAN- President Trump continues to deliver on his promise to 'Buy American, Hire American' - 

"Candidate Donald J. Trump promised his administration would follow two simple rules: “Buy American and Hire American.” Monday, during the third annual Made in America Showcase at the White House, President Trump will sign the latest in a series of executive orders keeping that promise.  The Buy American Act requires federal agencies to procure domestic iron, steel, and other materials and products for federal projects like airports, roads, and bridges. That’s good policy for at least three reasons.  Buy American federal procurement rules provide good manufacturing jobs at good wages, propelling more workers into middle-class prosperity."

HISTORY LESSON - Remarkable 95-year-old film discovered in junk shop shows 1920s Kansas in stunning detail - 

"The 5-minute silent video was posted to YouTube by the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum. Crowds of onlookers are seen watching the “Boys Loyalty Parade,” that took place on May 1, 1924. A celebration of youth, the parade features marching bands, floats and even bicyclists. At various points, streetcars and early 20th-century cars and trucks can be seen passing by."

PROTECTING OUR FUTURE RIGHTS -  Trump has nominated over 125 judges, solidifying his judicial legacy - 

"Trump is far ahead of recent presidents for appeals court confirmations, which an analyst calls the "big leagues" of the judiciary system.  "There’s no question that President Trump has been incredibly effective at putting people on the appellate courts — in fact, he’s gotten more than twice as many appeals court judges than most of the other presidents,” Mark Carl Rom, a Georgetown University government and public policy professor, told Roll Call."

VERY TRUE!  - Jon Voight: Trump The "Greatest President Since Abraham Lincoln" - 

"Actor Jon Voight delivered a two-part video message on Twitter where he declared Trump the "greatest president since Abraham Lincoln."  JON VOIGHT: People of the Republican party, I know you will agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love."

A LIBERAL POPE CONTINUES TO CREATE CONFUSION -  Francis continues to make us all a bit uncomfortable - 

"Pope Francis is an equal opportunity offender. No matter where you place yourself along the Catholic Church's broad spectrum – right, left or center; conservative or liberal; traditional or progressive – if you are not challenged and even disturbed by some of the things this pope says and does, then you are not paying attention.And that includes any of you who may consider yourselves "Pope Francis groupies" or "my-pope-right-or-wrong" Catholics. If he is not getting just a little bit under your skin then you are not listening, either."

COMMENTARY: The pope is not the "Church."  Lay people who truly love the Church want a pope who values tradition and doctrine, and not someone acting like a politician who wants to change the Church to suit his own often misguided set of values.  Unfortunately, the above article waters down the truth about the papacy of Francis and centers on the harm air conditioners cause to the environment. See: MISGUIDED LIBERAL POPE

NOT VERY SMART POLITICIANS - VIDEO - Democrats commit political suicide on immigration - 

"Amidst a border crisis that has morphed into a national security and a humanitarian crisis, leading contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination have all but endorsed open borders.  During the first of the candidate debates, the Democrats expressed broad support for decriminalizing illegal immigration.  The candidates also expressed unanimous opposition to removing any illegal immigrant who is not also a violent felon. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken the same position."

PELOSI BREAKS THE LAW -   Lt. Col. Allen West: ‘Pelosi just committed a high crime and misdemeanor’ over her ‘advice’ to illegals about how to avoid ICE agents -

ZERO EVIDENCE Mueller Report Shows No Evidence of ‘Systematic Efforts to Interfere in Our Election’ by Russia - 

"Journalist Aaron Maté exposed Mueller’s deceptive and misleading claims with the veteran FBI spook’s own words for a recent article published by Real Clear Investigations.  Maté draws attention to Mueller’s use of purposely vague descriptors indicating that he never really knew if Russians hacked Democratic Party emails and handed them over to WikiLeaks. Mueller writes that the Russian intelligence agency, the GRU, only appeared to steal “thousands of emails and attachments” from DNC servers in page 41 of his report."

"The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled for the Trump administration Friday in a case concerning the withholding of federal funds for local policing from so-called sanctuary cities.  A three-judge panel of the court ruled 2–1 that the Justice Department could deny Community Oriented Policing Services grants to cities and states that have “sanctuary” policies prohibiting law-enforcement cooperation with federal immigration authorities."

THE TRUTH COMES OUT - Climate change hoax COLLAPSES as new science finds human activity has virtually zero impact on global temperatures - 

"The climate change hoax has collapsed. A devastating series of research papers has just been published, revealing that human activity can account for no more than a .01°C rise in global temperatures, meaning that all the human activity targeted by radical climate change alarmists — combustion engines, airplane flights, diesel tractors — has virtually no measurable impact on the temperature of the planet."

“Mankind is being led by Satan to the deepest of the abysses, to the total condemnation of the soul…At the present time, all mankind is pending by a thread. If that thread is broken, many will be those that do not have salvation, for that reason I call you to the reflection, hurry up that we are running out of time, there will be no place for late comers.” Our Lady of the Rosary of San Nicolás (Catholic approved apparition)."

-------------

"Behold I command thee, take courage, and be strong.  Fear not and be not dismayed: because the Lord thy God is with thee in all things whatsoever thou shalt go."

Joshua 1:9


"The Power of the Mass is for you!  It is the sacrifice of sacrifices, because it is the sacrifice of God for us." 




"I have seen scandal come from Pope Francis’ actions too many times and it hurts me to see Holy Mother Church in the state it is today, divided, broken and bleeding, and I will be open about that with people because I believe it is important to talk about. But as much as I dislike Pope Francis, I still pray for him for the sake of our Church and I hope you will, too."

Commentary: Yes Francis, that is true. The Left is always looking for "new ways" to slander people, change history and traditions, weaken or destroy the family, kill and murder the  unborn, and tell lies to the general public.  vtb

GOING TO THE BISHOPS FOR ANSWERSCatholic Scholars Accuse Pope Francis of “the Canonical Delict of Heresy” - 

"The Catholic Church is fighting a battle against a ruthless enemy that will not back down. Just like any country at war, the Church has troops on the frontlines. These troops are its men that have answered the call to take Holy Orders."

"Given the demands of ministry and the complexity of running parishes, effective leadership is paramount to creating and building authentic, vibrant Catholic communities. Good Leaders, Good Shepherds is designed to help priests overcome today’s challenges of a diminishing number of clergy and more complex circumstances for priestly ministry."


HOMOSEXUALITY

"Wherefore, God gave them up to the  desires of their heart, unto  uncleanness; to dishonor their own bodies among themselves.  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 (withdrew His Grace) 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."

U.S. DEMOCRAT PARTY GUILTY OF MASS MURDER
 
Although there are a few in the Republican Party, the U.S. Democrat Party is mostly made up of politicians who believe you have the “right to kill” unborn Americans in the womb, and even after being born!  They have consistently blocked the Republican Party’s attempts to protect unborn and born alive infants.  They have also blocked the  Republican Party efforts to add a Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would protect innocent unborn human beings from being sentenced to a “death penalty” & slaughtered, torn apart, & butchered in the womb.
 
For many years spiritually insane actions by Democrat politicians have resulted in the deaths of almost 4,000 human beings EVERY DAY.  Millions upon millions have died at their hands. These mass murderers must be removed from office.  Do not  participate in the brutal murders of the innocent unborn by voting for these  inhuman hypocrites.

"And they shed INNOCENT BLOOD; the blood of their SONS and
OF THEIR DAUGHTERS... And the land was POLLUTED WITH BLOOD...And the Lord was EXCEEDINGLY ANGRY with his people" (Psalms 105: 38-40).


SPIRITUALLY REVEALING - Letter from Beyond - 
"This video recounts the tragic story of the eternal damnation of a young woman named Ani. Both the narrative and the letter in this video were found among the papers of a deceased nun, who in the world was known as Claire and worked with the condemned woman. This letter was revealed to Claire in a dream shortly after Ani was killed in a car accident.""

"Miracle of Mother Mary's Statue Crying Blood tears at St. Philip Neri's Church, Katukurunda, Kalutara, Sri Lanka on Good Friday.. When Our Lady is crying there is a reason behind it.. She knew about the bomb attacks.. Heaven allowed her to give us a warning to pray with her so that this attack fails but we didn't understand.. Lets pray fervently asking for God's mercy whenever we see these kind of miracles which are warnings from heaven.. Praying for those who died in the bomb attacks in Sri Lanka."


"She wrote in her Diary on March 1942: “The Virgin Mary appeared to me with tears in her eyes. I approached her and said, ‘Why are you crying?’  ‘I am crying because I cannot appease the anger of my Son against the human race. If men don’t do penance, the war will not end and much blood will be spilled. My daughter, immodest fashions and dishonesty have enraged God. Pray and do penance. Pray the Rosary frequently. It is the only powerful weapon to attract the blessings."

THE SPIRIT OF GOD VERSUS THE SPIRIT OF THE ANTICHRIST

"This is how you can know the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges JESUS CHRIST came in the flesh belongs to GOD, and every spirit that does not acknowledge JESUS CHRIST does not belong to to GOD.  This is the spirit of the antichrist who, as you have heard, is to come, but in fact is already in the world.  

You belong to GOD, children, and you have conquered them, for the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.  They belong to the world: accordingly, their teachings belongs to the world, and the world listens to them.  

We belong to GOD, and anyone who knows GOD listens to us, while anyone who does not belong to GOD refuses to hear us.  This is how we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit."  (1 John 4: 2-6)

JESUS said to him, "I am the WAY, and the TRUTH, and the LIFE; no one comes to the FATHER, but by me."  (John 14:6)

GRAVE WARNINGS

"And they shed INNOCENT BLOOD; the blood of their SONS and
OF THEIR DAUGHTERS... And the land was POLLUTED WITH BLOOD...And the Lord was EXCEEDINGLY ANGRY with his people" (Psalms 105: 38-40). 

"Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter."  Isaias (Isaiah) 5:20

SIXTH COMMANDMENT

"You shall not murder."
---Exodus 20:13
The taking of human life is expressly forbidden. Jesus elaborates on this commandment in the Sermon on the Mount, revealing that the sin of murder begins in the heart (Matt. 5:21-22).

"A Catholic would be guilty of FORMAL COOPERATION IN EVIL, and so unworthy to present himself for Holy Communion, if he were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate’s permissive stand on abortion and/or euthanasia."
---Cardinal Ratzinger on Worthiness to receive Holy Communion

COMMENTARY: It is impossible for a voter to separate his vote based on issues.  When you vote for a politician, you are voting for ALL his beliefs and political actions.  Therefore, if he approves of abortion, you are approving of abortion by voting for him.  It is far better to pray, let the Hand of Almighty God decide the outcome, and not vote at all if you do not agree with either political party's candidate.  It is God who rewards the Just, and punishes the guilty. 

We must first strive to be a good Christian, rather than striving to be a "good American."  It also must never be viewed as selecting the lessor of two evils.  Evil is evil, and voting for someone whom you believe is the lessor of two evils makes you an accomplice or cooperating with EVIL.

"WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF EXHORTATIONS TO BE SILENT.  CRY OUT WITH A HUNDRED THOUSAND TONGUES.  I SEE THAT THE WORLD IS ROTTEN BECAUSE OF SILENCE." - 
---ST. CATHERINE OF SIENA -


“Who is going to save our Church? Do not look to the priests. Do not look to the bishops. It’s up to you, the laity, to remind our priests to be priests and our bishops to be bishops.”
--- Archbishop Fulton Sheen


THE VISION OF ST. BRIDGET OF SWEDEN
 
St. Bridget of Sweden had a vision of Pope Gregory XI standing before Christ in judgment that she then communicated to him (February, 1373):  
 
"Rise up manfully, put on thy strength, and begin to renovate My Church which I acquired with My own Blood .... If thou dost not obey My Will, I will cast thee down from the Court of Heaven, and all the devils of hell shall divide thy soul, and for benediction thou shalt be filled with malediction -- eternally.... If thou dost obey me in this way, I will be merciful to thee, and will bless thee, and will clothe thee with Myself, so that thou wilt be in Me and I in thee, and thou shalt possess eternal glory."

THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS - PROPHECIES - 

COMMENTARY: There are a number of websites promoting or dismissing the Three Days of Darkness. Therefore your prayerful discernment is required. However, this website contains a good amount of truth regarding Catholic beliefs on a number of issues. It is also good to remember (although some doubt he actually said this, but it certainly makes sense) what Pope Urban VIII has reportedly said. (Of course, a decision regarding the Three Days of Darkness must be made before it actually happens, otherwise it would be too late):

"In cases which concern private revelations, it is better to believe than not to believe, for, if you believe, and it is proven true, you will be happy that you have believed, because our Holy Mother asked it. If you believe, and it should be proven false, you will receive all blessings as if it had been true, because you believed it to be true."  vtb

FROM THE SACRED SCRIPTURES

"I will yet pour out doctrine as prophecy, and will leave it to them that seek wisdom, and will not cease to instruct their offspring even to the holy age. See ye that I have not laboured for myself only, but for all that seek out the truth."
(Ecclesiasticus, speaking of Wisdom: 24:46-47)

“Now the generation of CHRIST was in this wise. When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, (before they were married) she was found WITH CHILD OF THE HOLY GHOST...

“Behold thou shalt CONCEIVE IN THY WOMB, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS.  And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath CONCEIVED A SON in her old age; and this is the SIXTH MONTH with her... And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of MARY, the INFANT LEAPED IN HER WOMB. And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the FRUIT OF THY WOMB.  And whence is this to me, that the MOTHER OF MY LORD should come to me?  Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid, for behold from henceforth all generations SHALL CALL ME BLESSED” (Luke 1:31,36,41-43,48).
 
“And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David... To be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was WITH CHILD” (Luke 2:4-5).
