Dumb by design!

Even though Jones is a Zionist denier, this is excellent commentary - and very true - just insert "Zionist" where he says "new world order" or "globalists" and you have the facts.

But what faith can we learn from these false teachers when, in consequence of separating from the Church, they have no rule of faith? ... How often Calvin changed his opinions! And, during his life, Luther was constantly contradicting himself: on the single article of the Eucharist, he fell into thirty-three contradictions! A single contradiction is enough to show that they did not have the Spirit of God. "He cannot deny Himself" (II Timothy 2:13).
In a word, take away the authority of the Church, and neither Divine Revelation nor natural reason itself is of any use, for each of them may be interpreted by every individual according to his own caprice ... Do they not see that from this accursed liberty of conscience has arisen the immense variety of heretical and atheistic sects? ... I repeat: if you take away obedience to the Church, there is no error which will not be embraced.

All this week, we've been looking at the Seven Joys of the Blessed Mother and the Franciscan Crown Rosary. As a wrap-up, here is a quote from The Seraph, June 2007: "Growth in Holiness or the Progress of the Spiritual Life" by Fr. Frederick William Faber, D.D.. This is an excerpt from the chapter named Prayer:

"I cannot conceive a man being spiritual who does not habitually say the Rosary. It may be called the queen of indulgenced devotions.

First consider its importance, as a specially catholic devotion, as so peculiarly giving us a catholic turn of mind by keeping Jesus and Mary perpetually before us, and as a singular help to final perseverance, if we continue the recital of it, as various revelations show.

Next, consider its institution by St. Dominic in 1214, by revelation, for the purpose of combating heresy, and the success which attended it. Its matter and form are not less striking. Its matter consists of the Pater, the Ave and the Gloria, whose authors are Our Blessed Lord Himself, St. Gabriel, St. Elizabeth, the Council of Ephesus, and the whole Church, led in the west by St. Damasus.

Its form is a complete abridgment of the Gospel, consisting of fifteen mysteries in decades, expressing the three great phases of the work of redemption, joy, sorrow, and glory. Its peculiarity is the next attractive feature about it. It unites mental with vocal prayer. It is a devotional compendium of theology. It is an efficacious practice of the presence of God. It is one chief channel of the traditions of the Incarnation among the faithful. It shows the true nature of devotion to our Blessed Lady; and is a means of realizing, the communion of saints.

Its ends are the love of Jesus, reparation to the Sacred Humanity for the outrages of heresy, and a continual affectionate thanksgiving to the Most Holy Trinity for the benefit of the Incarnation. It is sanctioned by the Church, by indulgences, by miracles, by the conversion of sinners, and by the usage of the saints.

See also how much the method of reciting it involves. We should first make a picture of the mystery, and always put our Blessed Lady into the picture; for the rosary is hers. We should couple some duty or virtue with each mystery; and fix beforehand on some soul in purgatory to whom to apply the vast indulgences.

Meanwhile, we must not strain our minds, or be scrupulous; for to say the Rosary well is quite a thing which requires learning. Remember always, as the Raccolta teaches, that the fifteenth mystery is the coronation of Mary, and not merely the glory of the saints. Our beads land us and leave us at the feet of Mary Crowned.

'The Jewish Advocate (Boston)
With more than 62 years having passed since the Shoah, local and state lawmakers are working to give Holocaust education a boost. Currently being reviewed by committees in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, the Simon Wiesenthal Holocaust Education Assistance Act – if passed – would provide select organizations nationwide with competitive grants to be used to develop Holocaust curriculum guides as well as training for teachers. The act would distribute $10 million – $2 million yearly for five years – in federal funding to establish these programs …
Consider that a valedictorian was threatened with loss of her diploma over a mention of Jesus at a public school!
Consider that a college professor who is critical of the holocaust story - has all of his classes canceled and was denied tenure...
Consider also that the United States deports people for Holocaust denial and that many nations in Europe will put you in prison for holocaust denial...
When will we start funding the education of our children about Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior of the world?
When will we deport or arrest people for denial of Jesus Christ as Savior?

In the picture on the left we see Mother Teresa worshipping Buddha in 1975. In the left corner of the left side of that picture she is kneeling. In the other picture we see Mother Teresa venerating the Hindu Gandhi.

Sarkozy affirms alliance to Israel

Mr. Sarkozy said: "I have the reputation of being a friend of Israel, and it's true. I will never compromise on Israel's security."

Even when such support threatens the security of France, the nation you lead?

On December 8, 1869, the International Congress of Freemasons imposed it as a duty on all its members to do all in their power to wipe out Catholicity from the face of the earth. Cremation was proposed as a suitable means to this end, since it was calculated to gradually undermine the faith of the people in 'the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.'"

Part III
There are many indulgences attached to the Franciscan Crown even for non-members of the Order:
1. Members can gain a plenary indulgence for the mere devout recitation of the Crown without further conditions.
2. The same holds for all the faithful when they recite the Crown together with members of the Order.
3. A further plenary indulgence can be gained by all who go to Confession and Communion and use specially blessed beads on all the Seven Joy feasts as well as all eminent feasts of the Blessed Virgin; like wise once a month if they pray the Crown regularly on Saturdays.
4. There are many partial indulgences for everybody using blessed Crown beads. Where blessed Crown beads are required, it suffices if the leader holds the beads. The use of material beads for the Crown came practically with the devotion itself, in the 1400's.
There are partial indulgences and the plenary indulgence for the hour of death under the usual conditions for all who carry the Crown beads as a blessed object and recite it frequently.

And king Herod heard, (for his name was made manifest,) and he said: John the Baptist is risen again from the dead, and therefore mighty works shew forth themselves in him. 15 And others said: It is Elias. But others said: It is a prophet, as one of the prophets.
16 Which Herod hearing, said: John whom I beheaded, he is risen again from the dead. 17 For Herod himself had sent and apprehended John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias the wife of Philip his brother, because he had married her. 18 For John said to Herod: It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife. 19 Now Herodias laid snares for him: and was desirous to put him to death, and could not. 20 For Herod feared John, knowing him to be a just and holy man: and kept him, and when he heard him, did many things: and he heard him willingly.
21 And when a convenient day was come, Herod made a supper for his birthday, for the princes, and tribunes, and chief men of Galilee. 22 And when the daughter of the same Herodias had come in, and had danced, and pleased Herod, and them that were at table with him, the king said to the damsel: Ask of me what thou wilt, and I will give it thee. 23 And he swore to her: Whatsoever thou shalt ask I will give thee, though it be the half of my kingdom. 24 Who when she was gone out, said to her mother, What shall I ask? But she said: The head of John the Baptist. 25 And when she was come in immediately with haste to the king, she asked, saying: I will that forthwith thou give me in a dish, the head of John the Baptist.
26 And the king was struck sad. Yet because of his oath, and because of them that were with him at table, he would not displease her: 27 But sending an executioner, he commanded that his head should be brought in a dish. 28 And he beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head in a dish: and gave it to the damsel, and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29 Which his disciples hearing came, and took his body, and laid it in a tomb.

9/11 A Closer Look...

Another false flag in the works?

'We Are Going to Get Hit Again'

The head of the National Counterterrorism Center speaks out on Al Qaeda's plans, America’s readiness—and the nature of the war on terror.

Lawrence Jackson / AP

Aug. 27, 2007 - Al Qaeda has an active plot to hit the West. The United States knows about it but doesn’t have enough tactical detail to issue a precise warning or raise the threat level, says Vice Admiral (ret.) John Scott Redd, who heads the government’s National Counterterrorism Center. In an interview at his headquarters near Washington, D.C., Redd told Newsweek’s Mark Hosenball and Jeffrey Bartholet that the country is better prepared than ever to counter such threats. But he also believes another successful terror attack on the U.S. homeland is inevitable...

Robertson Predicts 'Mass Killing'

Jan 2 07:29 PM US/Eastern

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - In what has become an annual tradition of prognostications, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson predicted Tuesday that a terrorist attack on the United States would result in "mass killing" late in 2007.

"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," he said during his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network. "The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."

Robertson said God told him during a recent prayer retreat that major cities and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September.

Robertson said God also told him that the U.S. only feigns friendship with Israel and that U.S. policies are pushing Israel toward "national suicide." ...

Home Prices: Steepest Drop in 20 Years

By Vinnee Tong, AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- U.S. home prices fell 3.2 percent in the second quarter, the steepest rate of decline since Standard & Poor's began its nationwide housing index in 1987, the research group said Tuesday. (note the deceptive headline "in 20 years" - when in reality it is probably the steepest decline in history - we have only been keeping track for 20 years)

...The decline in home prices around the nation shows no evidence of a market recovery anytime soon, one of the architects of the index said...
The report came a day after the National Association of Realtors said sales of existing homes dropped for a fifth straight month in July while the number of unsold homes shot up to a record level...

Part II
Devotion to the joys of Mary and the years of her sojourn on earth, in one form or another, goes back to the early Middle Ages. We are told that St. Thomas of Canterbury (+1271) venerated the same seven joys we venerate today.
The Franciscan Crown of the Seven Joys dates from the fourteen hundreds. Wadding (a Franciscan historian of that time) says it was about 1422 that the Blessed Virgin appeared to a novice and told him to lay aside his discontent with the Order because he could no longer weave a daily bouquet of flowers for Mary. Instead, he was to gather up a daily spiritual bouquet of Paters and Aves in honor of the seven joys just named.
"Thus there arose in the Order of Minors, and passed over to others, the custom of reciting the Crown of the Blessed Virgin, which is to be made up, as we are told by pious men, by repeating the Our Father seven times and the Hail Mary 72 times in honor of the 72 years which according to a more probable opinion the Blessed Virgin lived, and of the seven joys she designated." The joys of Mary named are those enumerated above and now commemorated by the feast and the Crown.
The Franciscan Crown has proved to be a powerful means of spiritual and temporal favors. Wadding in his day (+1657) enumerates 16 signal favors of various kinds. The novice himself was relieved of all discontent with his vocation and lived a happy and meritorious life in the Order.

Pro-'surge' group is almost all Jewish

Published: 08/24/2007

Four of five members of the board of a campaign promoting President Bush's policies in the Iraq war are Republican Jews.

The board of "Freedom's Watch" includes Ari Fleischer, Bush's former press secretary; Matt Brooks, the executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition; Bradley Blakeman, a senior White House staffer in Bush's first term; and Mel Sembler, a longtime RJC leader and former ambassador to Rome.

Brooks told JTA that the fifth member, William Weidner, a casino operator in Las Vegas, is not Jewish. However, Weidner's wife, Lynn, is Jewish and is active in that city's federation. Blakeman is the group's president.

Brooks said it would be a mistake to regard the group as having a Jewish direction. (Do they think that we are that stupid? - When will the gullible goyim wake up?)

"It's a coincidence that several of the board members are Jewish," he said, noting that half of the donors contributing to the group's first $15 million ad campaign are not Jewish. (yea - sure - in a nation in which less than 2% of the population is Jews it is just a coincidence that four of the five board members are Jewish and that the fifth member is married to a Jew - and don't forget that fact that 100% of the donors are ZIONISTS - jewish or not)

The ad blitz will promote Bush's "surge" policy in Iraq ahead of September, when Congress is set to assess the success of the influx of additional U.S. troops into Iraq.

Brooks said the aim ultimately is to build a grassroots organization that would promote Republican domestic and foreign policies and would replicate similar groups backing Democrats.

"This is a clear message to conservatives and Republicans and others who see what has happened on the left to let them know with Freedom's Watch that the cavalry is coming," Brooks said.

Of eight donors named Thursday in Politico, a political newspaper, four are Jewish: Sembler; Richard Fox, the chairman of the Jewish Policy Center, an RJC-affiliated think tank; Ed Snider, the founder of the Philadelphia Flyers ice hockey franchise who has been elected to several Jewish Sports Halls of Fame; and Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino operator who recently launched a giveaway newspaper venture in Israel.

Sales Soaring for Morning After Pill, But Opposition Persists

Thursday, August 23, 2007,2933,294217,00.html

In the year since it was approved for over-the-counter sales, the morning-after pill has become a huge commercial success for its manufacturer, but its popularity and solid safety record haven't deterred critics from seeking to overturn the milestone ruling.

The pill, marketed by Barr Pharmaceuticals Inc. as Plan B, was the focus of bitter debate for three years. After repeated delays, the Food and Drug Administration declared on Aug. 24, 2006 that customers 18 and older should be able to buy it in pharmacies without a prescription.

Barr began distributing the over-the-counter version last November, and all national pharmacy chains now stock it. The company projects that sales of Plan B will total about $80 million for 2007, almost double the total for 2006 and up eightfold from 2004, when Barr acquired the product as a prescription-only drug.

"Overall, we've been very pleased with the acceptance," said Barr spokeswoman Carol Cox.

"The product may not be for everyone — but if you find yourself in a position to need it, absolutely it should be available."...

How much longer will our Lord endure this?

Part I

On August 27, the Franciscan Order celebrates the feast of the Seven Joys of Mary. At first instituted in 1906 by Pope St. Pius X with General Absolution and a plenary indulgence, the feast was observed on the Sunday in the octave of the Assumption. On revision of the calendar in 1914, the feast was observed on the octave day itself. Since institution of the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for the universal Church in 1942, (The Franciscans were already celebrating this feast within the Order!) the present fixed date has been set. The Franciscan Crown is a companion devotion to the feast.

The joys of Mary are commonly numbered as follows:

1. The Annunciation

2. The Visitation

3. The Nativity of Jesus

4. The Epiphany

5. The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

6. The Resurrection of Our Lord

7. Mary's Assumption and Coronation

The joys are paired with the sorrows, for nobody attains to the crown without the cross of willing suffering and mortification. Good Friday comes before Easter all through Mary's life.

The joys of the Annunciation and the Visitation were balanced by the doubts of Joseph, the enforced journey from the home in Nazareth to Bethlehem, and Mary's ceaseless awareness that the Savior of the world would be a Man of Sorrows.

There was the happy birth of Our Lord and the Adoration of the Magi, but also the rebuff at the inns of Bethlehem and the stable, the sword foretold by Simeon, and the flight into Egypt.

Mary's joy in finding Jesus in the Temple came after the three-day loss of him, just as the joy of His appearance to her after His resurrection came only after the dread meetings on the Way of the Cross.

In the twenty-four years remaining of her traditional 72 years before the Assumption, Mary saw the Church spread on earth, but likewise she saw Christ rejected and martyred in His Mystical Body.
We see both Mary's sorrows and Mary's joys had but one source. They radiated from her love of Jesus her Divine Son, just as they centered in the Blessed Trinity. For this reason, her sorrows never could dismay her and cause despair, as little as her joys ever elated her to forget God and be absorbed in herself.
The key to both her joy and sorrow are those words of marvelous warmth and depth: "Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done unto me according to Thy word." We might even say the key words are "My spirit rejoices in God my Savior."
The overtone of Mary's life was the tone of joy because of her utter conformity with the will of God. That too was the secret governing the life of our holy father, St. Francis. We must never deceive ourselves that self-interest, self-seeking, self-indulgence must finally make for our happiness. Actually, there is no more grievous source of depression, disappointment and despair, for this life and hereafter. Whatever our goals, toils, and even our recreations, let them start, continue and end in GOD!! They are lastingly fruitful in the degree that in them we are instruments of God.

Evolution being used again to foster racism...

Humans have spread globally, and evolved locally

By Nicholas Wade
Published: June 27, 2007

Historians often assume that they need pay no attention to human evolution because the process ground to a halt in the distant past. That assumption is looking less and less secure in light of new findings based on decoding human DNA.

People have continued to evolve since leaving the ancestral homeland in northeastern Africa some 50,000 years ago, both through the random process known as genetic drift and through natural selection. The genome bears many fingerprints in places where natural selection has recently remolded the human clay, researchers have found, as people in the various continents adapted to new diseases, climates, diets and, perhaps, behavioral demands.

A striking feature of many of these changes is that they are local. The genes under selective pressure found in one continent-based population or race are mostly different from those that occur in the others. These genes so far make up a small fraction of all human genes...

The implication here is that people in Africa are less evolved - and that the later that they left Africa the less evolved they are.

This is racist nonsense.

The first evolutionists used to travel to Africa to study the native populations because they believed that they were less evolved.

The first pschologists performed bizarre studies and experiments on Africans because they believed that they were less evolved.

The only think "less evolved" about Africans is the fact that a great many were not yet Christian that were studied!

Evolution has been used to foster racism since this nonsense theory was first created!

The heretic "Mother Teresa" has an exorcism performed on her!
"The letters' release comes days after the archbishop of Kolkata, the city formerly known as Calcutta, said church officials performed an exorcism on Mother Teresa at a hospital later in her life."
Keep in mind that the Vatican II sect is extremely reluctant to give permission for exorcisms. One can only imagine their reluctance in the case of Mother Teresa who, being a major false prophet of the Vatican II sect, had the reputation of a “saint.” The fact that “church officials” did attempt an exorcism on her is very significant. In all probability, they would have done this only because Mother Teresa was manifesting the demonic in ways that were never reported.
True Catholics, have long maintained that "Mother Teresa" was a heretic and apostate. Remember - Jesus taught us that the world will hate us if we love Him - the World LOVED "Mother Teresa"!
Jews want to sue You Tube for airing the Nazi era film: JUDE SUESS.

Jewish group in Germany mulls complaint against YouTube


Germany's Central Council of Jews is considering a criminal complaint against YouTube for allowing videos that promote racial hatred and glorify war, it was reported Sunday.

Such action makes the video-sharing website liable to charges of incitement to racial hatred, the council's vice president, Salomon Korn, told the German television program Report Mainz.

"I expect the prosecutor's office, other relevant authorities and, if necessary, the German government to take action against this," Korn was quoted as saying in the program due to be aired Monday.

Program researchers said it was possible to watch videos on YouTube of an anti-Semitic film released by the Nazis during World War II called Jud Suess.

Outlawed videos of the neo-Nazi groups Kommando Freisler and Landser were also available on the Web site, the television programme broadcast by Germany's ARD network said.

Jude Suess is a great film - It is historically accurate and shows how nations can come under control of evil Talmudists! This is why they are so upset. The website where i viewed it has been shut down by Zionists.

It appears that You Tube has removed it - if you ever get a chance to watch this film watch it - it is very good - it is German with subtitles.

Those who enjoy the favor of Mary are recognized by the citizens of heaven. And those who bear her stamp, that is, those who have the grace to be her servants, are inscribed in the Book of Life.

"The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands." -Baruch Levy, Letter to Karl Marx, 'La Revue de Paris', p.574, June 1, 1928

“All the true children of God, the predestinate, have God for their Father and Mary for their Mother. He who has not Mary for his Mother has not God for his Father. This is the reason why the reprobate, such as heretics, schismatics and others, who hate our Blessed Lady or regard her with contempt and indifference, have not God for their Father, however much they boast of it, simply because they have not Mary for their Mother.”

Her Doctrine and Morals
Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost
26 August 2007

Epistle: Galatians 3:16-22
16 To Abraham were the promises made and to his seed. He saith not, And to his seeds, as of many: but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 Now this I say, that the testament which was confirmed by God, the law which was made after four hundred and thirty years, doth not disannul, to make the promise of no effect. 18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise. But God gave it to Abraham by promise. 19 Why then was the law? It was set because of transgressions, until the seed should come, to whom he made the promise, being ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator is not of one: but God is one.
21 Was the law then against the promises of God? God forbid. For if there had been a law given which could give life, verily justice should have been by the law. 22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise, by the faith of Jesus Christ, might be given to them that believe.

Gospel: Luke 17:11-19

11 And it came to pass, as he was going to Jerusalem, he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain town, there met him ten men that were lepers, who stood afar off; 13 And lifted up their voice, saying: Jesus, master, have mercy on us. 14 Whom when he saw, he said: Go, shew yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, as they went, they were made clean. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was made clean, went back, with a loud voice glorifying God.
16 And he fell on his face before his feet, giving thanks: and this was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering, said, Were not ten made clean? and where are the nine? 18 There is no one found to return and give glory to God, but this stranger. 19 And he said to him: Arise, go thy way; for thy faith hath made thee whole.

The Sunday

Dear Friend,
Is there no one found to return and give glory to God?
In today's Gospel we see the ten lepers who are cured and only the one, a Samaritan returned to give thanks to God. Not much has changed in all these years. Still we see that God gives His graces and the majority of mankind remain thankless.

In the case of the lepers in today's Gospel we see that only ten percent of the lepers were found to be grateful enough to return and give glory to God and this one was not even one of the chosen but was a stranger _ a Samaritan.

Today we see that perhaps more than ninety percent are ungrateful, but what is most shocking is that the chosen people, the true Catholics, who should know better are the greatest offenders in this matter. Their sin is inexcusable.
God allows or sends difficulties in our lives because we have wandered too far away. In our self-centeredness we become cold and indifferent to God. The only thing that will bring us back to the thought of God is necessity. And this necessity is in its self another and even greater grace from God. When we have lost all hope or confidence in ourselves or our fellow men to obtain relief from our sufferings we are forced to turn to God.
What a sad indictment this is of mankind _ that we must be forced to turn to God. This same God who created us and has given us all that we have and all that we are must force us even to think of Him. Justice and right reason tells us that we should be constantly and forever giving thanks and glory to God. Thus, we must conclude that we are not very just nor are we as reasonable as we imagine ourselves to be.
God gives us His graces daily and in a special manner in all of His Sacraments especially that of the Holy Eucharist. That free and liberal familiarity seems to have bred contempt for all that is sacred and holy. And it appears that the most guilty of this crime are those who call themselves "Traditionalists". These "Catholics" seem to be more concerned with arguing about the Faith and Religion than with practicing it. Where is the love of God in all of this?

God will not allow Himself to be mocked without retribution. The nine lepers were cured in their bodies but now their souls were even sicker than before, because of this worse sin of ungratefulness.
The Protestants that broke away from the Faith to follow their own passions were left to their own devices. They were unappreciative of all the graces that God offered them through His Church and thus they lost them. They may have the outward appearance of some of the Faith. They still use the Scriptures and call upon God, but they lack His grace. "Not all those who say Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom of Heaven."

The Novus Ordo appears next in this line. They too were unappreciative of all that they had received. And while they may appear healthy on the outside they too are as Our Lord says: "whited sepulchers, full of dead men's bones." They have some of the appearances of the Church but have nothing of the graces. They have changed the rites of the sacraments and in doing so have invalidated and thus made them null and void of all God's graces. The false "Council of Vatican II" was made possible by the indifference of Catholics. Again the Church's worst enemies were the lukewarm or indifferent Catholics.

This brings us back to the "Traditionalists" who are the latest to refuse to cooperate with the grace of God. These appear to be the most proud and arrogant of all _ modern Scribes and Pharisees. They appear to seek only to fulfill the letter of the law. They want all the external elements to be exact and proper and in this they think that they are pleasing to God. And in keeping the exterior of their sepulcher clean and white they have failed to notice that it too is filled with the rot and corruption. These too have failed to notice that they have only the outward appearance of Sacraments. The true Sacraments that give grace have been lost to them.
This leaves only the one tenth or less left. And these must be extremely careful to always be grateful to God. We must constantly recall that we owe everything to God. We must never arrogantly steal any glory from God. We must preserve the true Sacraments not only in the external manifestation of them but most importantly in the internal grace that must flow from them. And having found ourselves to have been made clean we must immediately return thanks to God, so that we can then hear the words of God: "thy faith hath made thee whole". And thus not only will we have the wholeness of the body but, most importantly the wholeness of our souls and eternal life.

The village of Blanot is situated in a long, narrow valley surrounded by picturesque mountains. Inconspicuous because of its location, it was nevertheless favored by God, who honored it with a Eucharistic miracle. The physical evidence of this event is still preserved in the church in which it occurred.
Before relating the miracle, it would be best to recall the manner in which Holy Communion was distributed in the 14th century (and in many places yet today). During Holy Mass, when the time approached for the distribution of Communion, the communicants would approach the altar railing which separated the body of the church from the sanctuary. Taking their places side by side along the length of the railing, they would kneel. At about the same time, two altar boys would approach the railing and take their places one at each end. Reaching down for a long linen cloth that hung the length of the railing on the side facing the sanctuary, each would take his end of the cloth and flip it over the top of the railing. The communicants would then place their hands beneath the cloth. The priest, holding the ciborium containing the consecrated Hosts, would approach one end of the railing and distribute the Hosts as he moved along its length. At the time of the miracle this was the way in which Holy Communion was received at Blanot.
The miracle occurred on Easter Sunday, March 31, 1331, at the first Mass of the day, which was offered by Hugues de la Baume, the vicar of Blanot. Because of the solemn occasion, two men of the parish named Thomas Caillot and Guyot Besson were also serving in addition to the altar boys. At Communion time the two men approached the altar railing, took their places at each end and turned the long cloth over the railing. The parishioners took their places, held their hands under the cloth and waited for the approach of the priest.
One of the last to receive was a woman named Jacquette, described as being the widow of Regnaut d'Effour. The priest placed the Host on her tongue, turned, and started walking toward the altar. It was then that both men and a few of the communicants saw the Host fall from the woman's mouth and land upon the cloth that covered her hands. As the priest was then placing the ciborium inside the tabernacle, Thomas Caillot approached the altar and informed him of the accident. The priest immediately left the altar and approached the railing; but instead of finding the Host, he saw a spot of blood the same size as the Host, which had apparently dissolved into blood.
When the Mass was completed, the priest took the cloth into the sacristy and placed the stained area in a basin filled with clear water. After washing the spot and scrubbing it with his fingers numerous times he found that, far from becoming smaller and lighter, it had actually become larger and much darker. On removing the cloth from the basin he was surprised to find that the water had turned bloody. The priest and his assistants were not only astonished, but also frightened, and exclaimed, "This is the Precious Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ!" The priest then took a knife and, after washing it, cut from the cloth the piece bearing the bloody imprint of the Host. This square piece of cloth was reverently placed in the tabernacle.
Fifteen days later, an official of the Archdiocese of Autun, Jean Jarossier, journeyed to Blanot to initiate an investigation. With him was the Cure' de Lucenay, a monsignor of Autun, and an apostolic notary. The interrogation of witnesses was conducted in the presence of Pierre Osnonout, the Cure' of Blanot. The results of this investigation were sent by Archbishop Pierre Bertrand to Pope John XXII, who pronounced a favorable verdict and accorded indulgences to those who would celebrate Mass in the parish church of Blanot. Copies of the documents are still kept in the City Hall of Blanot and are described as being in an ancient style which is difficult to read.
The Hosts that remained in the ciborium after the distribution of Holy Communion on that Easter Sunday were never used, and were carefully reserved in the tabernacle. The reason for this is not known, although one might speculate that the priest wished to avoid a possible repetition of the prodigy. In 1706 these Hosts, preserved in good condition after 375 years, were taken in a five-hour procession around the parish of Blanot in observance of the anniversary of the miracle. Taking part in the ceremony were many prelates and a great many people of the parish and the surrounding areas. At the conclusion of the procession, the silver ciborium holding the Hosts was returned to the golden box in which it was kept. This was carefully placed in the main tabernacle of the church.
For many years there were commemorative processions and special observances, but these were discontinued at the start of the French Revolution when violent fanatics were desecrating Catholic churches and taking objects of value.
On December 27, 1793, a group of revolutionaries entered the church and boldly opened the tabernacle. The bloodstained cloth, now encased in a crystal tube, was actually handled by one of them, but fortunately was rejected as being of little value. After this desecration of the church, the relic was entrusted to the safekeeping of a pious parishioner, Dominique Cortet. While it was in his home it was venerated and given all respect, yet despite this care, the tube was cracked on both the top and bottom. One of the injuries was caused by M. Lucotte, the Cure' of Blanot, who often kissed it and put it on the eyes of the faithful. The other end was accidentally cracked while it was hidden in the drawer of an armoire.
Following the Revolution, when peace was again restored, many persons were questioned about the authenticity of the cloth within the crystal tube. All agreed that it was the same one that had been kept in the church. After ecclesiastical officials were satisfied as to the relic's authenticity, it was solemnly returned to the church and placed in a box covered with velvet which, in turn, was placed within the tabernacle.
Sometime later a new crystal tube was designed for the relic. At either end are rings of gold and copper, with a cross surmounting the top. The tube, with the cloth clearly visible, is sealed and kept within a special ostensorium. This is adorned at its base with four enamel panels which depict events in the history of the relic.
Each year on Easter Monday, according to ancient custom, the relic is solemnly exposed in the church of Blanot.

Israel to End Care of Paralyzed Girl

Although it has never formally accepted responsibility, the Israeli government has largely sponsored her complicated medical rehabilitation for the past 15 months. But now her father has been told by the Israeli Ministry of Defense that his daughter must leave Israel and return to the territory of the Palestinian Authority. "Sending her away from this hospital, out of Israel, is like sending her to hell," says Aman, 30.

Notice that it is Israel's ministry of defense attempting to dictate the end to her care, not the medical professionals who are caring for her.

And will Israel, in front of the whole world, prevent this kid from getting the care she really needs?

It appears so, to avoid financial responsibility for the many other kids and people in exactly her same situation, courtesy of the IDF.

Israel never minds killing or maiming innocents: it just hates like hell getting caught at it.

Even the mainstream television news in Canada is now covering this FALSE FLAG OPERATION!

This report was prior to the admission by the police that these men were in fact - police officers pretending to be protestors!


These police officers pretended to be someone else and were in the process of trying to committ crimes that would then be blamed on the group that they were pretending to be part of!

This is a COSPIRACY - this is exactly what happened on 9/11 - Zionist Jews from the Israeli Mossad attacked the United States (with the help of the Zionists who run our government) and blamed it on Arabs. A FALSE FLAG OPERATION

Israel has an incredible history of False Flag Operations throughout the world!

As foreclosures mount, Britain acts to change mortgage system

By Julia Werdigier
Published: August 23, 2007

LONDON: As Americans tremble at the fear of an epidemic of mortgage foreclosures, Britain is already living one.

Foreclosures here are at an eight-year high. So far, lenders have repossessed a record 14,000 properties this year, 30 percent more than a year earlier, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders. And an additional 125,100 households are behind in their mortgage payments.

Personal bankruptcies have set an all-time record, spurred largely by a crushing increase in mortgage debt...

What, besides international banking (Zionist controlled) could explain that a foreign nation thousands of miles away, with a different currency, different government, totally different economy, etc... could be having the same financial housing problems as we are here?
Let's see how long it takes for the ADL to alter their position on church-state separation and scream antisemitism in this instance...

Fox News is the most effective tool of deception that Zionists have used in decades, maybe centuries.

I believe Fox is so effective for several reasons - not the least of which is the dumbing down of America. Schools have not taught the ability to detect a false argument for generations - most people do not even know the definition of a Sophism.

Fox News plays to the emotions of non-thinking conservatives and patriots and that is why they are so effective.

Zionists won the left leaning goyim years ago, but they had more difficulty with the right leaning goyim - that is till Fox and the neo-con revolution.

Now if you are a true patriot and conservative - you are labeled as an extremist, a conspiracy nut, a anti-semite, etc...

Don't get discouraged - stay on the side of Truth - fight the world, pray, and above all - be:

For Christ - Against the World

FINALLY - a government agency caught in the act of conspiring against its citizens ADMITS IT...

Of course - not completely.

This completely dispels the notion that there are no conspiracies.

Quebec police admit they went undercover at Montebello protest

Last Updated: Thursday, August 23, 2007 7:52 PM ET

Quebec provincial police admitted Thursday that three of their officers disguised themselves as demonstrators during the protest at the North American leaders summit in Montebello, Que.

A YouTube video shows Dave Coles, president of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union, ordering three masked men back from a line of riot police.(CBC)

However, the police force denied allegations its undercover officers were there on Monday to provoke the crowd and instigate violence.

"At no time did the police of the Sûreté du Québec act as instigators or commit criminal acts," the police force said in French in a news release. "It is not in the police force's policies, nor in its strategies, to act in that manner.

"At all times, they responded within their mandate to keep order and security."

Police said the three undercover officers were only at the protest to locate and identify non-peaceful protesters in order to prevent any incidents.

Police came under fire Tuesday, when a video surfaced on YouTube that appeared to show three plainclothes police officers at the protest with bandanas across their faces. One of the men was carrying a rock...

I guess that was his pet rock that he takes with him everywhere - because they were only there to identify non-peaceful protesters.

Watch this video clip of these jack booted thugs being exposed and tell me if you think that they were only there to identify non-peaceful protesters:

Purgatory refers to a temporary state of purification for those who have died in the state of grace but still need to get rid of any lingering imperfections (venial sins, earthly attachments, self-will, etc.) before entering the perfection of heaven. It's true that the word "purgatory" doesn't appear in the Bible (neither do the words "Trinity", "Incarnation" or even "Bible"). However, what's important is not the word, but the doctrine. And the doctrine of the final purification of the elect, apart from heaven or hell, is clearly taught in both the Old Testament and the New Testament."

2 Samuel 12:13-14 - David, though forgiven, is still punished for sin
2 Maccabees 12:39-46 - Next day, they came to find Judas (since the necessity was by now urgent) to have the bodies of the fallen taken up and laid to rest among their relatives in their ancestral tombs. But when they found on each of the dead men, under their tunics, objects dedicated to the idols of Jamnia, which the Law prohibits to Jews, it became clear to everyone that this was why these men had lost their lives. All then blessed the ways of the Lord, the upright judge who brings hidden things to light, and gave themselves to prayer, begging that the sin committed might be completely forgiven. Next, the valiant Judas urged the soldiers to keep themselves free from all sin, having seen with their own eyes the effects of the sin of those who had fallen; after this he took a collection from them individually, amounting to nearly two thousand drachmas, and sent it to Jerusalem to have a sacrifice for sin offered, an action altogether fine and noble, prompted by his belief in the resurrection. For had he not expected the fallen to rise again, it would have been superfluous and foolish to pray for the dead, whereas if he had in view the splendid recompense reserved for those who make a pious end, the thought was holy and devout. Hence, he had this expiatory sacrifice offered for the dead, so that they might be released from their sin.

Side note: Though this book was rejected by the Protestant reformers and therefore is NOT in Protestant Bibles, one can not ignore the historical reality of this event and the reality of the words which were said.

Matthew 5:25-26 - "you will be thrown into prison and not be released until you have paid the last penny."
Matthew 5:48 - be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect (perfection is to be strived for on earth)
Matthew 12:32 - sin against the Holy Ghost will not be forgiven, in this world, or the world to come.
Matthew 12:36 - you will have to account for every idle word on judgement day
1 Corinthians 3:10-16 - "if someone's work is burned ... the person will be saved, but only as through fire"
1 Corinthians 15:29-30 - Paul mentions people baptizing for the dead
2 Timothy 1:16-18 - St. Paul prays - asks that God have mercy on his dead friend, Onesiphorus.
Hebrews 12:14 - strive for that holiness without which one cannot see God
Hebrews 12:29 - For our God is a consuming fire
James 1:14-15 - when sin reaches maturity it reaches death
James 3:2 - we all fall short in many respects
1 Peter 3:18-20 to 4:6 - Jesus preached to the spirits in prison.
1 John 5:16-17 - Distinction made between deadly sins and one that are not deadly.
Revelation 21:27 - Nothing unclean will be allowed to enter into heaven.

Holocaust denier arrested in Spain

No, not an ADL agent who denied the Armenian Holocaust, but an Austrian man who denied THE Holocaust. To prevent British children from becoming Holocaust Deniers, teachers are getting Holocaust training in Israel.

Which nation is more submissive to Israel; the UK or the US?

Nor does the authority of the Church in any way interfere with the scientific exposition of Scripture. A Catholic commentator is in no way limited to a servile repetition of the interpretation already given by the Fathers. He is not, indeed, permitted to give to any passage in Scripture a meaning which is at variance with the faith, as attested by the decision of the Church or the unanimous consent of the Fathers. But he may differ as to the meaning of passages in Scripture, even from the greatest of the Fathers; he is not bound to consider that these passages necessarily bear the meaning given them by general councils in the preambles to their decrees; he may even advance interpretations entirely new and unknown before.

When, for example, God is said to have hardened Pharao’s heart, a Catholic commentator cannot infer from this that the book of Exodus makes God the author of sin, but he may, if he sees cause, give an explanation of the words which differs from that of St. Augustine or St. Thomas, or, indeed, from that of all the Fathers and Doctors of the Church taken together.

4. We now come to the use of the Bible, and the Catholic principles on this head follow from what has been already said. It is not necessary for all Christians to read the Bible. Many nations, St. Irenaeus tells us were converted and received the faith without being able to read. With out knowledge of letters, without a Bible in their own tongue, they received from the Church teaching which was quite sufficient for the salvation of their souls. Indeed, if the study of the Bible had been an indispensable requisite, a great part of the human race would have been left without the means of grace till the invention of printing.

More than this, parts of the Bible are evidently unsuited to the very young or to the ignorant, and hence Clement XI. condemned the proposition that “the reading of Scripture is for all.” These principles are fixed and invariable, but the discipline of the Church with regard to the reading of the Bible in the vulgar tongue has varied with varying circumstances. In early times, the Bible was read freely by the lay people, and the Fathers constantly encouraged them to do so, although they also insist on the obscurity of the sacred text. No prohibitions were issued against the popular reading of the Bible. New dangers came in during the middle ages. When the heresy of the Albigenses arose there was a danger from corrupt translations, and also from the fact that the heretics tried to make the faithful judge the Church by their own interpretation of the Bible. To meet these evils, the Councils of Toulouse (1229) and Tarragona (1234) forbade the laity to read the vernacular translations of the Bible. Pius IV. required the bishops to refuse lay persons leave to read even Catholic versions of scripture unless their confessors or parish priests judged that such reading was likely to prove beneficial. During this century, Leo XII., Pius VIII., and Pius IX. have warned Catholics against the Protestant Bible Societies, which distribute versions (mostly corrupt versions) of the Bible with the avowed purpose of perverting simple Catholics. It is only surprising that any rational being could have thought it possible for the Holy See to assume any other attitude toward such proceedings. It is right, however, to observe that the Church displays the greatest anxiety that her children should read the Scriptures, if they possess the necessary dispositions. “You judge exceedingly well,” says Pius VI., in his letter to Martini, the author of a translation of the Bible into Italian, “that the faithful should be excited to the reading of holy Scriptures: for these are the most abundant sources, which ought to be left open to every one, to draw from them purity of morals and of doctrine. This you have seasonably effected by publishing the sacred Scriptures in the language of your country, .... especially when you show that you have added explanatory notes, which being extracted from the holy Fathers preclude every possible danger of abuse.”

The "protesters" that were desperately trying to incite violence - WERE COPS and HERE IS THE PROOF!




Just a little background - there was a peaceful protest going on in Canada against the plans for the North American Union - then came a group of "protesters" trying to start a riot - the peaceful protesters figured out that they were police officers and exposed them - I posted a video of this:



if you haven't watched it - watch it..


Well - this latest photo above - is such hard evidence that these clowns were indeed police - that even the mainstream media in Canada is reporting on it!



This is a great one for those Fox News neo-con types who claim that there are no conspiracies and that people who believe in conspiracies are nut-cases!

Just in case anyone believed the History channel hit piece on the 9/11 Truth Movement - besides all the bogus arguments and selective presentations of the truth - you might want to consider who the History Channel is in bed with....

Surveillance Cameras Installed In New Elementary Schools

New security measures are now in place at Lubbock ISD's newest elementary schools.

"In this building (Centennial Elementary) we have surveillance cameras throughout the building and we have monitors in several places, " Superintent Wayne Havens said.

Havens says Centennial and Roy W. Roberts Elementaries were built with security in mind.

These schools also have an outdoor keypad access system. Since doors are locked during the school day, faculty members are the only ones who can access that keypad and enter.

Havens adds that security upgrades are also being made to other schools in the district. The first day of school for Lubbock ISD is this Monday, August 27th.
Dancing Israelis Filming 9/11 Attack: "Our Purpose Was to Document the Event."

(make sure to watch the video clip at the above link)

This is interesting in that the comments section seems loaded up with obvious Israeli shills trying to dismiss this.

But keep two things in mind. If ones purpose is to document an event,m one must have advance notice of what is about to happen.

Second, the video shot by these Israelis is among the evidence classified by the US Government.

Reports persist that this video includes a shot of the first impact on the towers, which would prove that these Israelis, some of whom were identified as Mossad, had known the targets in advance. Absent that reported first impact on the tape, it is hard to imagine a reason for the tape to be classified by the US Government, given the otherwise saturation media coverage of any and all videos of that day.


The Church, then, affirms that all Scripture is the word of God, but at the same time it maintains that there is an unwritten word of God over and above Scripture. Just as Catholics are bound to defend the authority of the Bible against the new school of Protestants who have come to treat it as an ordinary book, so they are compelled to withstand that Protestant exaggeration, on the other side, according to which the word of God is contained in Scripture and in Scripture alone.
The word of God (so the Council of Trent teaches) is contained both in the Bible and in Apostolical tradition, and it is the duty of a Christian to receive the one and the other with equal veneration and respect.
The whole history and the whole structure of the New Testament witness to the truth and reasonableness of the Catholic view. If our Lord had meant His Church to be guided by a book and by a book alone, He would have taken care that Christians should be at once provided with sacred books. As a matter of fact He did nothing of the kind. He refers those who were to embrace His doctrine, not to a book, but to the living voice of His apostles and of His Church. "He who heareth you," He said to the apostles, "heareth me." For twenty years after our Lord’s ascension, not a single book of the New Testament was written, and all that time no Christian could appeal, as many Protestants do now, to the Bible and the Bible only, for the simple reason that the New Testament did not exist, and the faithful were evidently called upon to believe many truths for which no strict and cogent proofs could be brought from the pages of the Israelitic Scriptures.
Further, when the writings of the New Testament were issued, they appeared one by one, in order to meet special exigencies, nor is the least hint given that the Apostles or their disciples provided that their writings should contain the whole sum of Christian truth. St. Paul wrote to various churches in order to give them instruction on particular points, and in order to preserve them from moral or doctrinal errors to which they were exposed at the moment. Far from professing to communicate the whole circle of doctrine in a written form, he exhorts his converts in one of his earliest epistles, to "hold the traditions which" they had learned, whether by word or by "his epistle," a few years later he praises the Corinthians for keeping the traditions (paradoseis) as he delivered them, and towards the close of his life, he warns St. Timothy to keep the "deposit" of the faith (paratheken), without a syllable to imply that this deposit had been committed to writing.
So, with regard to the Gospel records, St. John expressly declares that they were from the necessity of the case an incomplete account of Christ’s life. The Christians who lived nearest to Apostolic times believed, as the Apostles themselves had done, that Scripture is a source, but by no means the only source, of Christian doctrine. Tertullian constantly appeals to the tradition of the Apostolic Churches, and lays down the principle on which all his arguments against heresy turn — viz., that the Apostles taught both by word and by letter. A little before Tertullian’s time, St. Irenaeus actually put the imaginary case that the Apostles had left no Scripture at all. In this case, he says, we should still be able to follow the order of tradition, which [the Apostles] handed down to those into whose hands they committed the Churches.

3. There is a controversy no less vital between Catholics and Protestants as to the interpretation of Scripture. A popular Protestant theory makes it the right and the duty of each individual to interpret the Bible for himself and to frame his own religion accordingly; the Catholic, on the contrary, maintains that it belongs to the Church, and to the Church alone, to determine the true sense of the Scripture, and that we cannot interpret contrary to the Church’s decision, or to "the unanimous consent of the Fathers," without making shipwreck of the faith. The Catholic is fully justified in believing with perfect confidence that the Church cannot teach any doctrine contrary to the Scripture, for our Lord has promised that the gates of hell will not prevail against His Church.
On the other hand, Christ has made no promise of infallibility to those who expound Scripture by the light of private judgment. St. Peter tells us distinctly that some parts of the New Testament are hard to understand. Moreover, the experience of centuries has abundantly confirmed the Catholic and disproved the Protestant rule of interpretation. Unity is the test of truth. If each man received the Holy Ghost, enabling him to ascertain the sense of the Bible, then pious Protestants would be at one as to its meaning and the doctrines which it contains, whereas it is notorious that they have differed from the first on every point of doctrine. The principle of private judgment has been from the time it was first applied a principle of division and of confusion, and has led only to the multiplication of heresies and sects, agreed in nothing except in their common disagreement with the Church.
