JtM Crusade Prayer Meeting Thursday 31 October, 2019

Prayer Theme: Special Graces

Prayers are Groups A & D: (See https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/crusade-prayer-group-format/ for details).

(N.B. The prayer theme is chronological, and all the readings are chosen by volunteers and the books opened randomly after a prayer by the whole prayer group to the Holy Spirit (i.e. Crusade Prayer 51)

Samuel grew up helping the high priest, Eli. As a boy, God called Samuel. Samuel became a prophet.

Comment On Bible Reading:

Our Prayer theme today was “Special Graces”. The Bible Reading  spoke of the special graces given to Samuel in the Old Testament when the Lord spoke to him. It also spoke of Eli, the high priest.

Eli’s eyes were weak so that he could not see. Today, our eyes too, are weak so that we do not see. The lamp of God was not yet extinguished before him (Eli) and today also, it is not yet extinguished, but the light of God in the world has been dimmed. Samuel did not recognize the Lord’s voice because it had not yet been revealed to him. Many youth today have not heard His Voice or His Call. Samuel too was unfamiliar with The Word of God. The third time, Eli recognized that The Lord was calling the youth –  this is a sign of hope for us today.

Samuel (the youth) promptly answered the Lord’s call. God has always called prophets to warn us. Today is no different. Eli was to be punished because he knew his sons were blaspheming God and did not reprove them. Today, blasphemy is freely practised and only sometimes is it condemned, and usually only by a few bishops. They do not reprove their children.

The terrible blasphemy that we saw in recent weeks concerned the Pachamama idols in the Vatican. The Catholic Maccabees, (the one we could see in the image) in the videos appeared to have the body of a youth.Their actions in taking the idols out of the church and dumping them in the River Tiber, was something that Catholic church authorities had not done themselves- but should have.

In the first reading we opened up on in the Book of Truth., Jesus also spoke of many people who would hear His Voice, – some would listen, but many would not.

Jesus is with us at every prayer group, and he guides us to the Readings for the day.

Readings

Bible: Samuel 1:3

Book of Truth: 19 Mar. 2013

Book of Truth: 13 Aug., 2014

Bible Reading

1 Samuel 3: 1-19

Revelation to Samuel. 1 During the time young Samuel was minister to the LORD under Eli, the word of the LORD was scarce and vision infrequent. 2 One day Eli was asleep in his usual place. His eyes had lately grown so weak that he could not see. 3 The lamp of God was not yet extinguished, and Samuel was sleeping in the temple of the LORD where the ark of God was. 4 The LORD called to Samuel, who answered, “Here I am.” 5  He ran to Eli and said, “Here I am. You called me.” “I did not call you,” Eli answered. “Go back to sleep.” So he went back to sleep. 6 Again the LORD called Samuel, who rose and went to Eli. “Here I am,” he said. “You called me.” But he answered, “I did not call you, my son. Go back to sleep.”

7 Samuel did not yet recognize the LORD, since the word of the LORD had not yet been revealed to him. 8 The LORD called Samuel again, for the third time. Getting up and going to Eli, he said, “Here I am. You called me.” Then Eli understood that the LORD was calling the youth. 9 So he said to Samuel, “Go to sleep, and if you are called, reply, ‘Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.’” When Samuel went to sleep in his place, 10 the LORD came and stood there, calling out as before: Samuel, Samuel! Samuel answered, “Speak, for your servant is listening. 11 The LORD said to Samuel: I am about to do something in Israel that will make the ears of everyone who hears it ring. 12 On that day I will carry out against Eli everything I have said about his house, beginning to end. I announce to him that I am condemning his house once and for all, because of this crime: though he knew his sons were blaspheming God, he did not reprove them.14 Therefore, I swear to Eli’s house: No sacrifice or offering will ever expiate its crime. 15 Samuel then slept until morning, when he got up early and opened the doors of the temple of the LORD. He was afraid to tell Eli the vision, 16 but Eli called to him, “Samuel, my son!” He replied, “Here I am.” 17 Then Eli asked, “What did he say to you? Hide nothing from me! May God do thus to you, and more, if you hide from me a single thing he told you.” 18 So Samuel told him everything, and held nothing back. Eli answered, “It is the LORD. What is pleasing in the LORD’s sight, the LORD will do.”

Readings from the Book of Truth:

Layer by layer, their evil intents will become clear as they trip themselves up

19 March 2013 @ 10:45pm

My dearly beloved daughter, My Holy Word spreads like a powerful wind across the whole world, at this time, through these Messages.

Many will hear My Voice, whether they wish to do so, or not, for It will sound like thunder before the storm. Some will recognise the Holy Spirit as It engulfs their souls. Others, unfortunately, will not, but I say this to them. You have heard My Voice. It has stirred your soul and, yet, you block Me. Yet, you turn your back. You may fear My Voice, as It can be overwhelming, but the one thing you cannot do is to ignore Me.

So powerful is My Holy Spirit that It will touch your soul, whether you wish this to be or not. To those of you who run, hide and pretend that I Am not Present, you should know that you will be unable to deny My Presence, no matter how hard you try.

Some of you will resist the Truth as you lack faith in My Promise to offer you eternal life. Many of you find this frightening and would prefer to think that the Great Day of the Lord will not take place in your lifetime. And so you close your eyes, block your ears and seek solace in other things.

The security you feel in trying to find peace, where it can be found, will be short lived. Soon you will be denied the Word of God. Words you have been used to hearing will disappear from the homilies and the letters from your bishops and cardinals delivered to you and all those unsuspecting followers of Mine.

Masonic sects infiltrate the Church in Rome. Make no mistake – there can only be one pope in one lifetime.

Many of My followers will now reject My Holy Word, the Truth, just as they did during My trial on earth. You, My daughter, will be rejected as a heretic, sneered at and mocked. You will become a thorn in the side of the false prophet. But soon, all will see the subtle acts and the sly gestures of those false imposters who preside over My Throne in Rome, for they amount to sacrilege.

Layer by layer, their evil intents will become clear as they trip themselves up and those, blessed with the insight bestowed upon them by Me, will realise the abomination, which is unravelling.

The beast is now ready and forms a secular circle, comprised of some of the world’s leaders, as one in union with all that is against the Kingdom of God.  Demonic spirits, who invade these poor souls, will, because of their pride and arrogance, show themselves for all to see through their gestures, which will be scrutinised and questioned until the final answers will dawn on those blessed with the Gift of Discernment.

Trust in Me. Trust in this Gift of Trust. Let Me hold you and guide you through this jungle of evil creatures who wish to devour your souls.

Your Jesus

Always be wary of the divisions you witness in the world

13 August 2014 @ 4:03pm

My dearly beloved daughter the rage of Satan has never been so intense as he inflicts suffering of every kind upon God’s children, in every corner of the world. The greater the disruption the greater is his presence and influence. But he is powerless on his own and it is only through the influence, which he asserts upon those who are open to him, that he can cause such diabolical persecutions. The more souls he captures the worse the persecution is and the more he torments. When people who are loyal to Me allow him to create confusion and despair in their hearts, the venom which spills forth is the worst kind. It is then that they turn on each other, fight and divide until they destroy one another.

Always be wary of the divisions you witness in the world, whether it be in politics, religion or amongst My followers, for it will always be rooted in the haven of the beast, whose reign over humanity has come to an end. He will, however, not stop for one second in his plan to destroy all allegiance to Me, Jesus Christ.

It is only when you accept My Word, as I give it to you now, will you find the grace to ask Me to guide you through this devious minefield. Not one of you is strong enough in your faith to fight the influence of evil. Without daily prayer, where you beg for My Help,  you will not be able to remain close by My Side. But when I bestow such graces upon you, you will become courageous and have the strength to stay loyal to Me. Only then will the Truth sustain you.

Your Jesus

 

 

FATIMA AND OUR LADY OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

A.M.D.G

A Day With Our Lady of Fatima, 13th May 2017

PART 2 of a series of Fatima Centenary talks in 2017

For part 1 of this series see post dated 13th May, 2017. (On Home page, click “Archives” button and scroll down to May, 2017)    or press this link:  https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/2017/05/13/fatimas-message-more-relevant-than-ever-heavens-request-for-reparation/

FATIMA AND OUR LADY OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT:

Sign of hope and alert to danger

Today, the 13th of May, is a date that resonates with heavenly significance; it’s a date of singular importance in the recent history and future of the world.

One hundred years ago today, only seventeen years into the twentieth century, a terrible war was raging in Europe and a world-changing revolution was brewing in Russia…

And, in a remote little Portuguese hamlet, events of a spiritual kind were beginning to unfold. These events would culminate in a pre-announced Miracle to be witnessed by seventy thousand people: a public miracle unprecedented since Biblical times.

1.The sun plunged towards the earth and performed astonishing, almost-unbelievable gymnastics in the sky for fifteen long minutes, flooding the area of Fatima and 30 kilometres radius with a spectacular light show.

Photos still exist to this day of this phenomenal occasion.

So… a century ago, this very day, it all began.

But why the 13th of May? Why did Heaven reach down to three little shepherd children on this particular date?

Well, May, of course, has always been traditionally the special month for honouring the Mother of Christ. And while Jesus had selected twelve close followers to become the apostles of His newly-formed Church, there was always a 13th disciple quietly present in the background: His Blessed Mother Mary. She was that 13th disciple who had loved Him long before she’d even bore Him in Her womb.

There is a foreshadowing of Fatima, too, in the Old Testament and the 13th day of the month was central to that story as well. It features another Jewish maiden 2,400 years ago called Esther. When the ruling Persians of that time decreed that the Jewish race would be exterminated on the 13th of the month, Esther as Queen bravely interceded with the King to save God’s people.  The success of her intercession is still celebrated today among Jews everywhere with the holiday of Purim. And it is believed that the mysterious star which features on the gown of Our Lady of Fatima alludes to the biblical tale of Esther as the name “Esther” means literally “star”. There are so many parallels that the Fathers of the Church have conceded that Esther prefigures the role of Mary, Queen of Heaven, in our own times. We will come back to this a little later on.

Apart from all these speculative aspects about May 13ththis day used to be celebrated as the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Eucharist… or, as it was known back in 1917, the Feast of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament. See, the Blessed Sacrament is an intrinsic part of the message of Fatima:

It would appear that the Divine but hidden presence of Christ our God in the Tabernacles of our churches and in Holy Communion was already being disregarded, neglected and abused by careless or deliberate sacrilege a century ago.

In the year before Our Lady’s appearance at Fatima, the three shepherd children Lucy, Jacinta and Francisco, age six, eight and ten, were being prepared for her visit by a special angelic emissary. The angel of peace, the Guardian of Portugal, later identified as St Michael, was schooling them in perfect postures of prayer, kneeling with the forehead touching the ground as they prayed: “Jesus I adore you in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.”

On his second visit the Angel gave Holy Communion to Lucy and the Precious Blood from a Chalice to Jacinta and Francisco“Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ,” he said, “horribly outraged by ungrateful men!”  He instructed them about the importance of making sacrifices and reparation for sins so as to console God.

And he taught them two prayers addressed to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

The first was to be repeated three times: “Oh my God, I believe in You, I adore You, I trust in You and I love You. I beg pardon for all those who do not believe, who do not adore, who do not trust and do not love You.

The second prayer is more telling in its implications. Kneeling prostrate before the consecrated Host and the Chalice which remained suspended in mid-air, the Angel showed them to pray:

“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He is offended. By the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I ask of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

Outrages, sacrileges, indifference: these three offenses directly target God Himself, and they are not peculiar to one hundred years ago.

Let’s look at these three specific offenses.

The first, Indifference:

Numerous visions, messages and locutions from Jesus and Mary reported in our own times often make reference to “indifference”. A prayer dictated to a modern seer includes the plea, “Forgive us for the sin of indifference.” Another similarly prescribed prayer from heaven says, “Show mercy and forgiveness for those souls who hurt Jesus with their indifference.”

In recently-published Fatima booklet called Jacinta’s Tears the author wrote, “Consider if you went to a lot of trouble to get a magnificent present for someone, putting your whole heart into it and going to great length to show your love for that person. If he or she took the gift as if it were nothing and didn’t even bother to thank you, I think you would feel very saddened and offended (….)  By sending His Angel at Fatima God is telling us a little bit of how He feels, offended by our indifferences” – being taken for granted, ignored in many instances.

In the famous Church-approved visions of the Sacred Heart to St Margaret Mary over three hundred years ago, Jesus told her that He is more offended by the lukewarm-ness of His friends than by the outrages of His enemies.  Aren’t we the same – more susceptible to being hurt by those we love than by those who hate us? And that’s simply because, with those we love, we have opened our hearts to them. So… far worse, then, than the general indifference of the world is what Jesus experiences from Catholics who are indifferent to His Presence in the “Divine Sacrament of Love”.

At Fatima, the Mother of Jesus taught the children a short prayer of adoration: “Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the altar!”

The second offense requiring reparation is Outrages:

Historically, since Fatima, the outrages against Christ and His Body the Church have multiplied and intensified. There have been more martyrs in the last 100 years than in the first three centuries of persecution under the Roman Empire. From 1917 onwards, wherever Marxist revolution has takencontrol, the atrocities are incalculable – Russia, Spain, Eastern Europe, China, South America, Africa – endless places worldwide. And without fail, the Church has always become the avowed “enemy of the state”.  There was an incident in the Spanish Civil War of 1936 where a rebel solider coldly and deliberately fired a bullet through an exposed consecrated Host in a Church.

Today, the outrages are less dramatic perhaps, but they surface on all sides as the world distances itself more and more from religion and belief in God, to take up the banner of anti-Christian Marxist principles. Several weeks ago, on International Women’s Day, radical feminists attempted to set fire to the Cathedral of Buenos Aires. In our own liberal culture we hear of dubious works of “art” publicly displayed which boldly blaspheme God and the Virgin Mary. The name of Jesus Christ, used as a curse, has become part of our social vocabulary, in everyday life and in the cinema and theatre.

A movie just released in Atlanta, Georgia, portrays our Blessed Lady as a lesbian and ridicules her Virgin Birth. Gone are any boundaries, any sensitivity for what Christians hold holy; nothing any longer is sacred, all in the name of freedom of expression.

In France, 1843, a Carmellite sister, Sister Marie of Saint-Pierre (or St Peter) was given messages from Our Lord which enjoy the full approval of the Church. Marianologists say that these revelations, along with those of La Salette in 1846, form the foundation to the Fatima visitations of 1917.

Jesus told Sister Marie de St Peter, “My Name is blasphemed everywhere!” He made her understand that this frightful sin, more than any other, grievously wounds His Heart. With blasphemy the sinner curses Him to His Face, He said, attacking Him openly. “The earth is covered in crimes,” He went on, “The Holy name of God is blasphemed and the Holy Day of the Lord is profaned. At no time have these crimes reached such a pitch!”

Sister Marie de St Pierre begged Jesus to provide some confirmation of her revelations, and three years later her prayer was answered. Our Lady appeared at La Salette in France where she was seen weeping and distraught. Her tears, she said, were for “the utter contempt for God’s commandments, particularly the terrible crime of blasphemy and the profaning of the Lord’s Day. These two sins,” she explained, “break the second and third commandments.”

Jesus told Sister Marie de Saint-Peter, “The Jews crucified me on Friday, but Christians crucify me on Sunday.”

These words were spoken to a more God-fearing age 170 years ago, but aren’t they still applicable today – probably even more-so?  In the last thirty years in (… country named) Sunday trading, which we’ve all been guilty of enjoying, has contributed to the desecration of Sunday. And now, the authorities are looking at removing the shopping ban on Easter Sunday, the holiest of Sundays.

We know from various visionary sources that the taking of unborn life, the violation of the sanctuary of the womb, is an outrage in God’s eyes which invokes His justice – especially when the legalization of abortion has come from governments of nations that once were Christian. From the moment abortion was made lawful in the 1970s images of Our Lady worldwide began to weep tears of blood. Now, forty years and millions of abortions later, this so-called service has become accepted, institutionalized, even considered a human right. Our Lady spoke of the “errors of Russia”. Abortion is one of these errors, legalized in Russia in 1920.

At Fatima our Blessed Mother asked for the five First Saturdays to be kept as days of reparation for FIVE particular offenses and outrages. These are

(1) the mocking of her Perpetual Virginity;

(2) insults to her Divine Maternity;

(3) scorning her Immaculate Conception;

(4) the disrespect shown to her images and statues,

(5) the teaching of children by Christians that she, the pure vessel created by God to bring His Son into the world, was a sinner like everyone else.

Moving on to the third area of offense highlighted at Fatima, Sacrileges:  

Seven years ago today our previous Holy Father Pope Benedict gave a papal address to 500,000 pilgrims at Fatima which pointed out an uncomfortable fact: “Today,” he said, “we see in the most horrifying way, that the greatest persecution against the Church does not come from its enemies outside, but from the sins within; and that the Church has therefore a great need to re-learn penance. . .”

In the United States, from surveys conducted within the Church, Catholic journalist Michael Voris has brought to light some disturbing facts, and I quote: “One of the most central beliefs of the Catholic Church, the Real Presence that is, Jesus Christ present, really, truly, and substantially Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity under the appearance of bread and wine is believed by only half of all Catholics. Sixty per cent of American Catholics have succumbed to the culture of death and believe the Church is wrong on abortion. Over half of them believe individuals have the final say as to whether sex outside marriage is okay, not the Church. This is the Church established by the Son of God who will judge us on our deeds.”

This survey could well reflect a similar picture in most western countries, including our own, where a more relaxed, liberal spirit has come to exist.

Those who have seen the changes in the Church over the last few decades would agree that lack of respect and reverence is prevalent among us; this is aligned to the gradual erosion of devotion to the Real Presence; and a growing belief that sin is no longer a reality, just a human weakness that doesn’t really call for repentance or confession.  I was recently talking to an elderly woman, a Catholic convert of thirty years, who told me she has never once been to Confession – she didn’t see any need! This is someone who, sadly, has never been instructed sufficiently in the faith.  According to the American survey, a large percentage of the faithful are living in sinful situations and receiving Holy Communion; even seeing it as their “right”.

In a recent message to a holy soul in Argentina, the Blessed Virgin Mary is reported saying, “Woe to those who receive My Son improperly without repentance! They choose their eternal condemnation! Woe to those who commit sacrileges! Woe to those who mock the divine! They will know the pains of hell.” Strong words – but Our Lady is, after all, a loving mother who cares about our welfare and is firm in teaching the Christian essentials.

There’s another kind of sacrilege we need to be aware of, too. In our increasingly de-Christianized world, Black Masses are on the upsurge. Despite the deterrent of locked Tabernacles in our churches nowadays, the stealing of consecrated Hosts poses no problem to Satanists. With the trend of Communion in the hand more common in the last fifty years, we have actually made it easier for them to acquire Hosts to desecrate. An ex-Satanist high priest, now a fervent Catholic convert, revealed to us last year during his address here that (…city named) boasts the greatest number of satanic covens of all our (...country named) cities.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In the closing vision of Fatima, 13th October 1917, after the Miracle of the Sun, the Virgin Mary came dressed in the religious habit of the Carmelites. This is an interesting final note. Apart from the fact that the visionary Lucy would eventually join the order of Mt Carmel, this could have established a link to a new series of apparitions that may well be a continuation of Fatima.

Is it just coincidence that in 1961, twelve months after the sealed envelope of Fatima’s Third Secret was opened and its contents kept secret, the Blessed Mother began appearing in earnest as Our Lady of Mt Carmel at another remote Catholic village, further north of Fatima in Spain? The amazing events at Garabandal lasted four long years and are still under investigation by the Church.

However, two urgent and major messages emerged from Garabandal.

The first spoke of the prime necessities of Catholic life, already mentioned at Fatima: “We must make many sacrifices… perform much penance… and …visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently…” The second message, given in 1965, said, Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts…”

The Blessed Sacrament!Once again the focus! And this was emphasized by what became known as “the Little Miracle of Garabandal”. As at Fatima, the miracle was pre-announced, in this case fifteen days beforehand, and it occurred on the night of the patronal feast of the village.

While young visionary Conchita was being given invisible Holy Communion by an Angel, the Sacred Host became visible on her tongue. This event was witnessed by many onlookers and was captured on film.

Father Anthony Mary Prendergast of the Community of St John here in (…city named) published a wonderful little booklet two years ago on the Holy Eucharist. I’m lifting from there some inspirational quotes from four of the greatest saints in the Church’s history:

St John Chrysostom says, “When the Mass is celebrated, the sanctuary is filled with countless angels, including the Guardian Angel of each person present, all reverently worshipping their Lord and God.”

In the revelations of St Bridget, we read: “One day when I was assisting at the Holy Sacrifice, I saw an immense number of Holy Angels descend and gather around the altar, contemplating the priest. They sang heavenly canticles that ravished my heart. Heaven itself seemed to be contemplating the great sacrifice. And yet we poor, blind and miserable creatures assist at Mass with so little love, relish and respect! Oh, if God would open our eyes, what wonders should we not see?”

And St John Vianney, Cure of Ars: “All the good works in the world are not equal to the Holy sacrifice of the Mass because they are works of men, while the Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in comparison, for it is but the sacrifice of men to God; but the Mass is the sacrifice of God for men.”

The favourite saint of many Catholics, the priest who bore the wounds of Christ for fifty years, Padre Pio, once wrote: “Every Mass heard with devotion produces in our souls marvelous effects, abundant spiritual and material graces which we, ourselves, do not know. It is easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”

And the great Eucharistic saint, St Julian Eymard was famous for these words: “The Eucharist is not only the life of individual Christians; it is also the life of nations. A century advances or regresses to the extent to which the Most Holy Sacrament is adored.”

***********************

We live in times of huge unrest, of extremes, of momentous change, chaotic confusion and uncertainty: a faithless and perverse generation. Saint John Paul the Second at a Bishops gathering in France, in 1980, said that mankind faces a “mega-temptation”; that is, the temptation to think that man can save himself through science and technology; therefore Christ is to become obsolete. 

It was on the doorstep of this modern age that Mary, like a prophet of old, made her entrance at Fatima. Supposedly a new and more enlightened age, scientifically advanced, yet in the last hundred years since Fatima there have been more wars and casualties than in the entire known history of humanity. These are dangerous times to live; dangerous and deceptive times if you are a believer.

Fatima was a pre-warning for us, echoing the Old Testament times when the Jews turned their back on God and He sent prophets to awaken them to the consequences. And this returns us to the biblical narrative of Esther which I mentioned earlier. Queen Esther lived in Persia (modern day Iran) and when the entire population of the Jewish people were threatened with extermination on the 13th day of the month, she interceded with the King to save them.

Well, barely weeks after the Fatima apparitions ended in 1917, Holy Mother Russia (as she was called then) was seized by Marxist Communists. Millions upon millions of God’s people were wantonly slaughtered, clergy and consecrated religious humiliated and killed, churches closed.

During the Spanish Civil War which followed suit in 1936, the Red Terror made martyrs of over four thousand diocesan priests and seminarians, 2,500 monks, friars and nuns. And so the pattern has been repeated throughout the twentieth century and now into the 21st Century. Wherever Communist and anti-Christian ideology has arisen, genocide has followed.

The Third Secret of Fatima released at the turn of this century concerns a vision of a murdered bishop in white, along with the bodies of cardinals, bishops and laymen in a city of ruins with armed soldiers. It does suggest there’s still more to come yet, a global form of Marxist Communism which, unrecognized, could be stealthily gaining foothold around us. Militant atheism in all its varied guises, institutionalized and politicized, remains humanity’s gravest enemy, diametrically opposed to true faith and religion.

At Fatima we were forewarned by the Mother of Salvation, If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, stirring up revolutions, and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer; several nations will be annihilated.”

At present, persecution of Christians is on the rise. According to the Turin-based Centre for Studies, CENSUR, Christians are the most targeted religious group in the world. In the fiscal year of 2016 just gone, over ninety thousand Christians were murdered for their faith and 500 to 600 million were otherwise persecuted in such ways as imprisonment, abductions, economic restrictions, destruction of property and loss of personal rights.

These statistics surprise those of us who live relatively peaceful and comfortable lives in (…country named) because the media seldom reports on this issue. An Iraqi priest now living in (…city), Father (…  name) , has told us of hundreds of thousands of Chaldean Catholics murdered by Islamic Fundamentalists in Iraq and Syria. The Christian population of his homeland has been decimated from two million to less than 200,000 today.

I mention these facts and figures not to frighten anyone but just to make us aware of how serious the situation is one hundred years after Fatima.

There can be no hiding from the prophecy delivered from heaven that some nations (according to the repeated words of Our Lady to Sister Lucy) could disappear from the face of the earthsomething quite conceivable in the present international climate. Like Queen Esther, however, our Blessed Mother is interceding for us and with our co-operation, will succeed in bringing peace to our troubled world. We must hold fast to that hope, increasing our prayers and efforts, our sacrifices and penance, which can help mitigate the severity of events.

To combat all the evils of today Mother Mary has given us three weapons: number one, the daily Rosaryand at Fatima Lucy was told that  God has invested this ancient prayer with extra power for spiritual warfare when the devil appears to be gaining the upper hand; number two, the Five First Saturday Communions of Reparation; and three, the consecration of Russia named specificallywhich we are still awaiting and praying for – and personal consecration and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Ultimately, we are assured that Mary’s Immaculate Heart WILL triumph. That triumph, we must remember, begins in individual hearts, and when people give up their Saturday, like all of you today, to come and honour the Blessed Mother, the first fruits of that triumph are already evident. It isn’t a numbers game. It never has been. The few, the devoted, can make a vast difference!

On this special day, which a hundred years ago was the feast of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, please pray in the words of Pope St Pius X, “O Virgin Mary, Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, inspire in all Christians a deep devotion for the Most Blessed Sacrament so that they may become worthy to receive Him daily”.

Comment by (R.S.): Watch out for the 3rd instalment of this series of talks on Fatima and the Russian connection

 

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire

A+M+D+G+

Where there’s smoke…

The article mentions that the Bishop of Rome has given directions for a change of “Eucharistic Liturgy”.

This article states:

 “My confidential source of Santa Marta, referring heard some discussion – between lunch and the other – he told me that in fact the change of the Mass, wanted by Bergoglio, has PURPOSE ONLY: IS ECUMENICAL. I.E. “CREATE” A MASS THAT IS NOT IN OPPOSITION TO THE PROTESTANTS AND THEN A LITURGY THAT WE CAN CELEBRATE “IN COMMUNION”.

And ‘This is the truth. And this is his intention. A perennial liturgy that is ecumenical, however. Obviously I predict that Bergoglio to do this will also change the text of the “Consecration”. Which would make the Mass invalid. And I predict that even those who will refuse to celebrate with this “new rite” will be considered out of the Church. They are coming up these days. And facciamocene a reason. THE BISHOP OF ROME WANTS TO BECOME “EL PRESIDENTE” OF THE VARIOUS DENOMINATIONS; and to do that Jesus Christ is selling at a price much lower than Judas.

As for me, since I am a priest, I will refuse to celebrate this type of liturgy. And I tell you that you will return to being Christians “catacombs.”

THE INTENT OF BERGOGLIO, then get to this. CHANGE TO “UNITE.”     …

My Santamartese “source tells me that it is almost done.
Only a matter of time.
Mala tempora currunt.

I suggest to all readers to pray the Madonna with many Rosaries. Not to dismiss these times. Because here we are. But because they help you to keep the faith. And to be persevering in time of persecution. That will come soon.”

  • Shortly afterwards, Fra Cristoforo disappeared from the blogosphere. People wondered whether it was all a deception or perhaps was he too close to the truth and he was found out??

More ‘smoke’?

  • Then, on 20th June, another article was published by John Supplers  of Veritas Vincit entitled: Vatican reportedly working on “Ecumenical Rite of Mass” for joint worship with Protestants”

 “…Italian journalist and Vatican expert Marco Tosatti has reported that Pope Francis has formed a top-secret commission tasked with implementing a new kind of “mass” that is acceptable to Catholics, Lutherans and Anglicans.

The commission consists of representatives from all three denominations, all bound to secrecy.

The journalist, who is well known in Italy for his accurate reporting of all things happening in the Vatican, has said that while this news is merely a “rumor” at this point, his “sources are usually good.”

… According to Tosatti, the central issue lies in the Eucharist, since the  …. Catholics believe in Transubstantiation and the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, while Protestants believe that it is merely a memorial.

Tosatti reports that a possible “solution” being proposed is that the words of Consecration be replaced by silence:…”

 Unexpected Confirmation:

  • Donna had just finished reading this article and opened up the Bible at random (as she does each night). The next day – on 22/06/2017 7:20 AM-  Donna wrote: “This is so relevant. I had just finished reading about the changes to the Mass (the aforementioned article published on 20th June). Last night’s random reading that I opened on was… (B of T: Sept 13, 2011) “Changes to be introduced in the church which will contradict the Word of God.”   It’s Confirmation.”
  • More Confirmation: (Tt Crusader answered her)
    ”Hi Donna,

    I was just reading this message yesty (yesterday), same topic as yours, about the changes coming to the Mass.” (B of T: 25th July, 2013)

“…My Son’s Church is being stolen and soon His Body will no longer be present therein…

 …Soon the antichrist will appear and his rise to fame will start in Jerusalem. Once he appears in public, everything in my Son’s Church will change, quickly. The new rules will be introduced.

Many cardinals, bishops, priests, nuns and ordinary people will be excommunicated, if they do not follow the new rules or adore the false prophet”

Also Tt added later:

  • “Thunder and lightning will descend upon the Temple of the Lord

January 3, 2015 @ 8:20pm

“…  Because the Truth has been twisted and the Word of God ignored, people will continue to turn their backs on the Holy Word of God. Their descent into darkness will result in a punishment by God, the Most High.

It pains My Eternal Father to see the depths to which man has fallen in the pursuit of anything that brings him pleasure. But, the day when the Holy Sacrifice ends, and the hour that the imposters desecrate My Altar, will be the final thorn by which they will pierce My Side.

At the appointed time, thunder and lightning will descend upon the Temple of the Lord and it will come crashing down. Woe to the man who participates in this sacrilege for he will be cut off from every reprieve and he will fall into the abyss like a stone. No one will defend the man who desecrates My Altar then, for once the Hand of God descends like a heavy axe, they will realise the Truth.

…   The Truth must be upheld for if you accept anything but the Truth – the Word of God – you will end up with nothing.

Your Jesus”

  • Donna’s reading on the night following (22nd June):

“There is only one Truth. One Light. Anything else is a lie”.     1 January 2012 @ 5:30pm

“…When you try to analyse My Word, you will find you are unable to do this successfully. No amount of analysis can change the Truth of what I say.

No one, … has the authority to twist the meaning of My Holy Word, so that it becomes more acceptable in your eyes. This applies to My Word contained in the Holy Bible and My Word contained within the  Messages.

The Truth must be told. My Holy Word must never be diluted, or the Truth tampered with.

My Holy Word must never be changed, adjusted or twisted, so that it becomes a lie.

…  They have twisted my Teachings for centuries to suit their avarice, lust, pride and greed.

… But beware. Those Christians who believe that the twisted truth of My Teachings will be acceptable in My Eyes will be shocked during The Warning. …  I urge these people to accept that I Am the Truth and the Light. There is only One Truth, One Light. Anything else is a lie.

Your Teacher and Redeemer
Saviour of all Mankind, Jesus Christ”

Donna’s comment to Tt: You know I told a priest once and gave him the message years ago about changes to the Mass. He told me it wouldn’t happen- they couldn’t, he said! I wonder what he will think when he’s eventually told that they are! I hope he remembers the message I gave him.

 

Is it only smoke, or is there fire?

Key Questions:  Why is the Commission “a secret commission”?

Why are Lutherans and Anglicans involved in changing the Mass?

 

There will, no doubt,  be a new explanation for the Eucharist, which will be couched in humanism.

It will obviously be promoted as a symbol of unity, of welcoming all, of bonding together. Words from the Bible will once again be used very cleverly in order to deceive.

Much damage has already been done to the Sacrament of the Eucharist by Amoris Laetitia. It too, was already planned way before the Synods took place. It was a foregone conclusion.

Get rid of the Real Presence and we have the “Abomination of Desolation” foretold in Old Testament. It is necessary for the New One World Religion. We might not see the results straight away – the world stage has to be set and ready.

We, the Remnant Army,  must be ready.  Jesus is depending on us. We have to warn our fellow Catholics who have no idea of what is happening and will just go along with the changes.

Fore-warned is fore-armed!

  2. B of T: 3 Jan. 2015 (On the day the Holy Sacrifice ends, and when the imposter desecrates Jesus’ altar, the temple of the Lord will come crashing down. We must accept the Truth; the pride and arrogant will find it impossible to accept God’s Mercy, unless they discard their weaknesses.)
  3. B of T: 18 March 2012 (Jesus’ light keeps the world alive; without it the world would cease to exist. This Light will disappear for 3 days just before the end. Jesus reminds us that this must NOT be confused with the Warning. Jesus tells us that we must not fear these days because He will be with us, even though we may not be aware of His presence. Jesus reminds His sacred Servants to prepare His people for this. Jesus reminds us that this generation will witness His glorious return.)
  4. B of T: 9 Jan.2014 ( Jesus tells us:Satan, has created desperate unhappiness amongst God’s children. Their pain then becomes Mine and this is why the evil one creates such havoc – to hurt Me”.

Jesus tells us to: “Always love each other, faults and all – the way I love you.”)

Bible (NAB) Psalm 94: 1-6

LORD, avenging God, avenging God, shine forth!a

2 Rise up, O judge of the earth; give the proud what they deserve!

3 How long, LORD, shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked glory?

4 How long will they mouth haughty speeches, go on boasting, all these evildoers?

5 They crush your people, LORD, torment your very own.

6 They kill the widow and alien; the orphan they murder.

Readings from the Book of Truth

2. Thunder and lightning will descend upon the Temple of the Lord

January 3, 2015

My dearly beloved daughter, when God gave the world the Truth, through the prophets, it was an act of mercy on His part. So many had forgotten about God, adored false gods – which come from the hierarchy of satan that they began to believe in their own invincibility. Were it not for God’s Intervention many people would have suffered a terrible punishment.

What God told the prophets, since the beginning, happened. The warnings He gave to humanity resulted in those, who heeded them, being saved while those who ignored them were cast away.

All that has been foretold will come to pass, and those who oppose God in His attempts to bring peace and salvation to His children will have to account for their defiance. Because the Truth has been twisted and the Word of God ignored, people will continue to turn their backs on the Holy Word of God. Their descent into darkness will result in a punishment by God, the Most High.

It pains My Eternal Father to see the depths to which man has fallen in the pursuit of anything that brings him pleasure. But, the day when the Holy Sacrifice ends, and the hour that the imposters desecrate My Altar, will be the final thorn by which they will pierce My Side. At the appointed time, thunder and lightning will descend upon the Temple of the Lord and it will come crashing down. Woe to the man who participates in this sacrilege for he will be cut off from every reprieve and he will fall into the abyss like a stone. No one will defend the man who desecrates My Altar then, for once the Hand of God descends like a heavy axe, they will realise the Truth.

Many may have fallen away from God but, for the most part, many will still call out to Him seeking solace in His Arms. But, there will exist a core – a band of beasts – whose outward appearance disguises the wickedness, which lies within, who will urge, seduce and draw towards them the souls whose hardened hearts have made them the perfect cohorts in the plot to desecrate My Body. This is the group, foretold of long ago, who will try to destroy humanity. Their power will be limited, however, though it may seem great. My Father will only permit so much opposition against Me, His only begotten Son, for so long.

The good of heart will rally and come to Me. It is through the sins of pride and arrogance that the greatest division will be created amongst men and, unless they discard their weaknesses, they will find it impossible to accept My Mercy.

The Truth must be upheld for if you accept anything but the Truth – the Word of God – you will end up with nothing.

Your Jesus

 

  1.  I will come in the clouds surrounded by all the angels and the saints in Heaven

18 March, 2012

My dearly beloved daughter, My children must know that the reason the world is spiritually empty is because they no longer know the difference between right and wrong. If it were not for My Light, which fills each soul, including sinners, the world would cease to exist. It is My Light, which keeps the world alive.

Many of My followers, who consecrate themselves to suffer in union with Me, also help keep this Light alive. Just before I return, My Light will disappear in the world, for a period of three days. This will happen at the very end and must not be confused with The Warning.

It will be during these three days, that there will weeping and gnashing of teeth and people will scramble looking for My Light, even though they rejected Me. This will be the time for the Truth.

My followers must not fear these three days, for while you may not be aware of My Presence, I will be with you.

Then after the three days, I will return to Earth, exactly the way in which I ascended into Heaven. I will come in the clouds, surrounded by all the angels and saints in Heaven in Great Glory. How beautiful and joyful will that Day be when I come to Reign over the Earth according to My Father’s Will. No man will be in any doubt that it is I. Nor will they have any doubts about their future. This will be the Day I come to Judge.

I will divide My people into those who love Me and those who hate Me. Those, who rejected Me and paid homage to all things evil, will be banished in the eternal fires of Hell. The rest will come and live with Me, in Paradise, along with the resurrected righteous. This is the goal, which every soul must look forward to, when I come again as I promised you.

To Christians, I say this. Know that this Great and Glorious Event will take place soon. Your generation will witness My Glorious Return.

I will never reveal the Day, for only My Father knows this, but I can assure you that the time for My Second Coming is close.

To My sacred servants I tell you that it is your duty to prepare My people, those souls for whom you are responsible, so that they are included in the Book of the Living. I plead with you to work hard, through the power of communications and prayer, to prepare the world for My Second Coming.

Your loving Saviour,

Jesus Christ

Redeemer of all Mankind

4. My Love for humanity is whole. I love all, including those who commit the most wicked acts

January 9, 2014

My dearly beloved daughter, look around you and what do you see? A world full of contradictions. On one side you will see love, joy and goodwill. But then this will be counteracted, on the other side, by the hatred, which the evil one has for humanity.

Any unrest, sorrow, confusion, lack of trust, venom, hatred and evil which you see take place in the world; know that this can only come from one source. The scourge of humanity, that is Satan, has created desperate unhappiness amongst God’s children. Their pain then becomes Mine and this is why the evil one creates such havoc – to hurt Me.

My daughter, everywhere you walk and every face you see, as and from this day, will be as I see them – each a child of God. How I love them all, how I want to cherish each of them – irrespective of their faults or their sins. It makes no difference what they have done to offend Me; I still love them – each and every one. I feel great joy when I see the love radiate from them – a love they have received as a Gift from My Father, Who created them. Their love is My Love and it draws other souls to them and this then spreads the Love of God everywhere.

But when I witness pain and suffering, in any soul, then their pain becomes Mine. Their pain can be caused by terrible suffering, brought about by lack of love for others, which brings a sense of desperate desolation. Their loneliness and isolation is felt by Me also and this ignites My Compassion further.

Then there are those souls who spend all their time chasing things, which do not come from Me. Those who reject Me, completely break My Heart in two. How I shed many Tears of Blood for these souls, for they have cut the umbilical cord, which joins them to their Saviour – their only hope of Salvation. When you see these souls, My daughter, you will feel a terrible sorrow in your heart, just as I feel for them.

Finally, there are those who say that they represent Me, but who are not worthy to wipe My Feet. Their hatred of Me is caused by their love for themselves. Yet, no matter how often they insult Me and mislead My flock, I still crave their souls.

My Love for humanity is whole. I love all, including those who commit the most wicked acts. So it will be until the end. I will embrace all souls until the last day, when after all efforts by Me to save souls have been exhausted, only those who run into the abyss of the beast and who refuse Me, despite knowing how much I love them – will be lost to Me, forever.

Always love each other, faults and all – the way I love you. When you disapprove of someone, remember My Love and remain silent. When you despise another know that this hatred does not come from Me. When you look at one another, see them as if through My Eyes. Not one of them should be shunned by you. Instead, show compassion to those who displease you, offend you or cause you harm, for they are loved by Me. If you love Me, you will show love to all of those with whom you come into contact.

Love is infectious because it comes from God. Only good can come from love.

Your Jesus

Naboth’s Vineyard (and ours)!

+AM+DG+

1 Kings 21: 1-20

Naboth’s Vineyard: God confirms our discussion through a story.

When we opened the Bible reading of Naboth’s vineyard on Oct 20th, it was particularly pertinent to a situation that we just discussing before prayer group.

A fellow Crusader had been persecuted (by the majority) at an RCIA meeting for upholding the truth about practising homosexuals and the responsibilities of priests in not knowingly giving Communion to those in a state of mortal sin. And the same goes for refusing other groups or individuals who do not have the right to demand participation in the Sacrament, while remaining in mortal sin.

When we read this scripture of Naboth’s Vineyard, it spoke to me of this same situation.002-naboth-ahab

Naboth was a righteous man who refused to give his inheritance to Ahab. He believed he had no right to sell his inheritance at all. The inheritance was a vineyard which King Ahab thought he might use for a common vegetable garden. King Ahab was annoyed and petulant at being refused the plot that he wanted. His evil wife, Jezebel, concocted an evil plot to get rid of Naboth and take over the vineyard, which they fulfilled with the help of unrighteous men.

In this case, I thought the vineyard represents the Holy Eucharist (and the Church: Her traditions and Magisterium) which is our inheritance. We have no right, like Naboth proclaims, to give it away. This makes some people angry and somewhat petulant; that we will not give what is Holy (the Vine; which is Jesus’ Body and Blood in the Eucharist and the vineyard: His Church) to those who stubbornly remain in a state of mortal sin and are therefore not entitled to receive of the Sacraments.  It rouses them to plot and plan ways to take what they are not entitled to.

PF was also annoyed that the plot to change the conditions for reception of the Eucharist at the Synod, failed. The common vegetable garden represents the intention he really has, which is to replace The Lord’s Vineyard’, with common bread by changing the words of The Consecration and deviating the meaning in the hearts and minds of followers and in the Church practices.

Notice what God draws attention to next…

Afterwards though, the Lord sent Elijah the Tishbite to meet Ahab at the vineyard as he was about to take possession of it, telling him to say, ‘You have already committed murder, do you now also dare to take possession of what is not yours?’

Continuing this interpretation, the sin of murder represents all mortal sin, and by inference all those in an unrepentant state of mortal sin!

Do you dare…? He says, through Elijah.

Those in a state of mortal sin are warned by God that they should NOT take possession of what is not theirs for the taking– adding Sacrilege to mortal sin. The passage continues with a warning prophesy against Ahab:

Then say to him, ‘This is what the LORD says: In the place where dogs licked up Naboth’s blood, dogs will lick up your blood—yes, yours!’ ”

20 Ahab said to Elijah, “So you have found me, my enemy!” I have found you,” he answered, “because you have sold yourself to do evil in the eyes of the LORD”.

We cannot hide from the Lord if we do evil, even if we think our desire is a ‘reasonable request’ or a ‘wise move before men’.  The priest must not acquiesce toJezebel’s’ pressure (in the dissenting congregation) but respect and protect the Eucharist and our inheritance; in fact the whole of the Church’s Teaching, Magisterium and Her Traditions.

We must be ready to resist the current ‘king’ (pope and other church leaders) even through false accusation and death, as Naboth did, and also to fulfil our role like Elijah the Tishbite, when we are called to do so.

We must unveil the plans and deeds of wicked men, warn them in the Name of God and admonish them.

Reading for Today from the Book of Truth: “Ecclesiastical masonry has now reached the greatest level of power within My Most Holy Church on Earth”.

+AMDG+

This message was the third reading  opened at JtM CPG meeting on Thursday 5 May, 2016, after a Prayer to the Holy Spirit. The second reading (which was from the Book of Truth) was posted  yesterday. The prayer theme was: Faith, Church, Family, Priests, Nations

  1. Ecclesiastical masonry has now reached the greatest level of power within My Most Holy Church on Earth

30 September 2013

My dearly beloved daughter, I must ask all of My sacred Servants to watch out for the summons to attend retreats, which will be introduced to persuade them to agree to a new oath of allegiance, which will render useless – should they agree to do this – their most sacred vows, which they made to me, Jesus Christ.

Ecclesiastical masonry has now reached the greatest level of power within my most holy Church on Earth and it will soon dictate its new liturgy, which will be in defiance of my most holy will.

Created by the enemies of God and disguised as a new adaptation to suit political powers, who want to ban Christianity, it will be presented so quickly that many within My Church will be astonished.

They will be pained to see such an abomination, but the voices of my loyal servants will not be heard in public, for they, the masons, control how this new liturgy will be perceived in every way.

Every objection raised in dioceses throughout the world will be dismissed and cast aside. The excuse will be that the Church needs to recruit new young souls who have fallen away from it. By appealing to a secular world, they will say that this will convert more people through a new liturgy.

Oh how deceitful this abomination will be and how many will fall for the lies, which will lead so many away from the truth.

The Book of Truth was foretold to the prophet Daniel so that God’s children would never forget the truth when they are drowning in the lies which will devour My Church on Earth. Accept the truth laid down by My Church on Earth.

Do not accept the new laws, which you will be forced to accept in my holy name, which will amount to sacrilege.

Your Jesus
