Our heavenly Mother is Crying


Our heavenly Mother is Crying!


Our Lady is the Mother of all of humanity. Thus the Heart of our Mother, “full of grace” (Lk 1:28) and thus loves immensely, suffers intensely for the loss of each child who falls into hell for all eternity. Lucia of Fatima told us that Our Lady at Fatima was sad for this; at La Salette (1846) Our Lady was crying. Precisely because so many people have willingly believed the beautiful easy lies of the “father of lies” (Jn 8:44), Satan, that the devil and hell and sin do not exist, of which very few priests speaks about today, Our Lady in July 1917 showed the three children hell and the thousands of people who fall into hell every day. Lucia wrote later that if there was not a special grace in that moment, all three children would have died. Very few people today seek to discover the holy will of God in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (ed. 1992), but follow the easier way of subjectivism and relativism which totally surrounds us today (TV!). The attitude is: “I decide the truth; I do not trust God but I trust myself!” We want a Mother of God who comforts us but not a Mother of God who tells us to do the will of her divine Son, Jesus, who explained to us God’s laws for our true good! We want a religion that serves us, not a religion that helps us discover and do the holy will of God; today a great number of priests and bishops and group leaders give us what we want not what we need according to God! More and more frequently Our heavenly Mother is trying to move our hardened hearts with her tears which pour forth from the eyes of the statues of Our Lady around the world!

There is less prayer than ever before, more sin than ever before, even worse, indifference as if sin no longer exists, and so we have given much greater power to “the father of lies”, Satan (Jn 8:44). In particular Satan has more power to “disguise himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14), to offer his very deadly beautiful lies as if they were the “truth that sets us free” (Jn 8:32)!
Thus it is very important in these times of great confusion, when even Catholic bishops are no longer in agreement about the fundamentals of our faith and morals, to not only pray much and to study the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults, but to keep our eyes open so as not to fall into the beautiful lies of Satan presented as if they were the Truth!

Only GOD Can Save Italy


Only GOD Can Save Italy




The following is an email I sent to a friend who works for Pro-Life in Italy.


Dear Laura,


How are you? It is not easy today! We want good things per our dears ones, for our families, but we see that things are getting worse very quickly. A great number of people who lived before us did not trust God but they trusted themselves or the world or worse, and so we have arrived to this point of social, cultural and religious crisis in the history of the world and of the Church, the Body of Christ.


I think I sent you by email: “I went to vote today, March 4, 2018, in Italy, and I said before those present where one votes, even though you must not say who to vote for, I said we must vote for GOD, because only GOD can save Italy!!! To vote for God means to make a good monthly confession according to the 10 Commandments explained in the CCC, not according to the TV, the Holy Sunday Mass, and the Holy Rosary everyday!!! “


Regarding the political party, “People for the Family” (“Il Popolo della Famiglia”), we have found a few things. But first I would like to offer some information which indicates the situation today in the world and in the Church, which we spoke about on the train a little bit, May 19, 2018, the day of the March for Life in Rome.


Already more than 400 years ago Our Lady warned us about the power of Freemasonry in our times:
Thus I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th century…the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of morals… As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and deeply profaned. FREEMASONRY, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the aim of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin and encouraging procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church… IN THIS SUPREME MOMENT OF NEED FOR THE CHURCH, THE ONE WHO SHOULD SPEAK WILL FALL SILENT.”
(Our Lady of Good Success in Quito, Ecuador, on January 20, 1610).


In the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (ed. 1992), we find:
The Church's ultimate trial
675 Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. the supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.
676 The Antichrist's deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgement. the Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism.
677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God's victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven. God's triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgement after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.


It is true what you say that we must seek to protect our families and the society. The vocation, the grace of the vocation, of the father of the family and of the pastor is to protect the family and the society, to protect the sheep from the wolf, “the father of lies” (Jn 8:44). True love for ones neighbor fundamentally consists in helping our neighbor to carry out the design and vocation from God (not from the world or from Satan) for our neighbor. Husbands must help their wives to carry our their vocation from God as the heart of the family and the wives must inspire (not seduce) their husbands to live as the Good Pastor who “offers his life for the sheep” (Jn 10:11), ready to give his life for his wife and family as did Jesus for his Spouse, the Church (Eph 5:25). In general, man reasons with his head, and the woman reasons with her heart; both are equally important with different roles. Wives, families and the society need very much the vocation of the authentic Christian man, but Satan has led people to rebel against this gift of the protection of God the Father and of the good fathers of the families and of the faithful pastors of the parishes. We cannot substitute for the vocation of another person; this is why we must rejoice and thank God for the vocation of the people around us who live their respective vocations. This is why a powerful weapon in the hands of Satan is secular feminism, with a great help from the secular mass media, to despise the vocations of others, to make jealous, to criticize, to rebel against, to ridicule on the TV, to put aside the father of the family so that there is not the normal and fundamental protection, preordained by God, to defend us from the beautiful lies and the half truths from the “prince of the world”, Satan (Jn 12:31, 14:30), who is very intelligent and does not sleep. Eliminating the father of the family, separating the children from the parents with powerful hidden messages of rebellion on the TV, the children will be formed by the world! This is a similar strategy used by lions in Africa who wait patiently for the little ones to stray too far from their mother!


It is very interesting that after the Second Vatican Council, a great number of seminaries stopped teaching classes on logic and metaphysics so the priests are much less prepared to be able to distinguish the subtle differences between the TRUTH and the very powerful and hidden poisons of the heresies - of the beautiful lies, of the half truths, of false love, of false mercy, of misguided compassion, of false ecumenism - that lead souls away from the TRUTH which truly makes us free (Jn 8:32). Saint Thomas Aquinas wrote: Rarely affirm, seldom deny, ALWAYS DISTINGUISH. Already 400 years ago, Satan, with the protestant rebellion (“reformation”), led the protestants to rebel against all that is Catholic arriving to “Scripture Alone”, “Faith Alone”, and to reject philosophy, which fundamentally offers logic which includes the ancient philosophers, such as Aristotle and Plato, accusing the Catholic Church of contaminating the pure faith with ancient philosophies. But Satan uses many different philosophies to deceive us and to lead us far from God; if one does not understand the fundamental philosophies, there is no defence against these beautiful hidden lies. The other extreme was the rebellion against faith, with illuminism and rationalism. It is a continual struggle to maintain the proper balance of both as Satan continually pushes the pendulum toward one extreme or the other. This is why there is needed Divine Revelation properly and infallibly explained by the authentic Magisterium of the Church of 2000 years, not just of the last 5 or 6 years according to what the world wants approved and promoted by the “Modern Church” infiltrated with many Masons. God gave us both, faith and reason, like the two wings of a bird. Perhaps Saint Augustine said it best: “I believe in order to understand, and I understand in order to believe.” I thank God to have graduated in mathematics (UCLA, 1974) and to have studied philosophy at the Angelicum in Rome with the Dominican fathers in the 80’s who taught us logic and metaphysics and philosophy and theology in the context of Thomism, not a pick and choose smorgasbord type Catholicism or collection of modern philosophies all on the same level of importance and of orthodoxy as is done in many catholic universities after the Second Vatican Council. Just as the guidance and protection of the fathers of families was pushed aside, this promoted lack of criteria was a underhanded way of taking away the guidance and protection of the authentic Magisterium of the Church in the name of “freedom of thought” which encouraged young students and seminarians to choose any philosophical base that appealed to them without any explanation about the dangers or what really leads to the fullness of Truth, Who is Jesus Christ (Jn 14:6). Read the encyclical of Pope John Paul II, “Fides et Ratio” (1998; http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_15101998_fides-et-ratio_en.html).


You might find very enlightening “To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons” (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/).
Almost twenty Cardinal and more than 150 Bishops, more than 50,000 priests and religious, have followed the Marian Movement for Priests, receiving by way of the book which contains the messages, precious teaching from the Mother of God, in this devastating attack of the ecclesiastical Masonry on the sound doctrine of the Church and the Sacraments, especially the Most Holy Eucharist.
Many bishops have given their Imprimatur to this book. You will find in these messages of Our Lady revealed through Don Stefano Gobbi a resemblance to the writings of Saint Louis de Montfort, Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and to the messages of Our Lady of Fatima, with the sweetness that only the Mother of God, and the Mother of each us, could communicate to those open to the caresses of Our Lady!


For this I need much prayer. More is obtained through one day of intense prayer than through years of continuous discussions” (October 24, 1984).
In the name of Mary, Marxist communism, which for decades had been exercising its rule and holding so many of my poor children in oppressive and bloody slavery, has been defeated in these countries. Not because of political movements or persons, but through my personal intervention, has your liberation finally come about. It will again be in the name of Mary that I will bring to completion my work with the defeat of Masonry, of every diabolical force, of materialism, and of practical atheism, so that all humanity will be able to attain its encounter with the Lord and be thus purified and completely renewed, with the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world” (Sastin (Slovakia, Czechoslovakia); September 12, 1991).
See how humanity lies prostrate and wounded, lacerated and defeated, threatened and stricken, diseased and dying. OF ITSELF IT CAN NO LONGER RISE AGAIN, unless a great mercy lift it up” (December 31, 1991).
MY ADVERSARY (Satan) WILL ONE DAY THINK THAT HE IS CELEBRATING A COMPLETE VICTORY: over the world, over the Church, over souls. It will be only then that I will intervene - terrible and victorious - that his defeat may be all the greater when he is certain in his conviction that he has conquered once for all. What is in preparation is so extraordinary that its like has never happened since the creation of the world. That is why everything has already been predicted in the Bible. The terrible struggle between me, the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and the Red Dragon, Satan, who has now succeeded in seducing many ...” (October 18, 1975).


Our Lady of Trevignano Romano: “Watch out also for the fake “democracies”, because they will become dictatorships” (April 1, 2017) (http://www.lareginadelrosario.com/).


It is not easy today. Things are beginning to come tumbling down. Everyone wants to live a normal life, not in a hurry. But for those who truly pray for guidance from God and to do the will of God in our situation truly difficult today, God helps us more than ever today. We are called to become saints more quickly than normal, to arrive more quickly to think about the more essential things, that is, eternity is much more important than this short life!!!


Sister Lucy of Fatima said to Father Agostino Fuentes, the postulator of the cause of beatification of Giacinta e Francesco (December 26, 1957): “Our Lady is very displeased because it is not taken into account her message of 1917. Neither the good nor the bad have held them in consideration. Believe me my Father, the Lord will punish the world very soon; the punishment is immanent! Many nations will disappear from the face of the earth, many nations will be annihilated. … The devil knows that the religious and the priests, not living up to their beautiful vocation, drag many souls to hell. … We have at our disposition TWO EFFICACIOUS MEANS: Prayer and Sacrifice. … The third time she said that, the other means exhausted and despised by men, He will give with trembling the last anchor of salvation which is the Most Holy Virgin in person, signs of tears, messages of seers spread in all the parts of the earth. Our Lady said that if we do not listen and if we still offend we will not be pardoned. Father, it is urgent that we realize this terrible reality. WE DO NOT WANT TO FILL THE SOULS WITH FEAR, BUT ONLY IT IS URGENT A RECALL TO REALITY. From when the Holy Virgin gave such a great efficaciousness to the Rosary, THERE DOES NOT EXIST ANY MATERIAL, SPIRITUAL, NATIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL PROBLEM that cannot be resolved with THE HOLY ROSARY AND WITH OUR SACRIFICES. To recite it with devotion will be to consol Mary and to wipe away so many tears from her Immaculate Heart. … Our Lady expressly said: “We are approaching the end times”.”


Prayers and graces are never wasted; if the people for which we pray for do not want to change their lives and carry the cross of Jesus, the graces go to people who are willing to do the will of God and to share more in the passion and crucifixion of the Church, the Body of Christ. Speaking about our times, Saint Louis de Montfort, in his book, “True Devotion to Mary”, tells us about the saints in our times:
I said that this will happen especially towards the end of the world, and indeed soon, because Almighty God and his holy Mother are to raise up great saints who will surpass in holiness most other saints as much as the cedars of Lebanon tower above little shrubs” (No. 47).


Saint Padre Pio said: "It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the HOLY MASS." This saint also said: “The ROSARY is the weapon for these times”!


I do not want to discourage you, but at least I want to help us to put our energies in the things that produce true lasting fruits. It is normal to want to be protagonists in the solutions that are needed today. But we must remember what we hear in the liturgy of Ash Wednesday: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return”! It is Our Lady who God has given the task of crushing the head of the serpent in this period (Gen 3:15), not myself or you; I must suffer and pray much to discover what Mary wants that I should do. This is the period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21); this is the period of the great battle between the “woman clothed with the sun” and the “great red dragon” (Rev 12:1-3)! If the soldiers or colonels do not obey the 5 star general or do things that they think is better but not in unity with the whole army, what happens? Saint Paul tells us that not even a good thought comes from ourselves but from the Holy Spirit (Rom 8:26; 2Cor 3:5; Phil 2,13)! Jesus said: “Apart from me you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5); He did not say “something”, but “nothing”! If we do not have the humility to seek to discover the plan of Our Lady and to submit to her plan so as to be part of her army, we can easily find ourselves helping the plan of the enemy and to be part of the army of the “prince of the world” (Satan) (Jn 12:31; 14:30), with “good intentions”! If we are not united in the army of Our Lady, we will be easily used in underhanded ways, to contribute to the other army, or at least, to end up afterwards deluded and discouraged. Two armies are being formed today, that of Our Lady and that of Satan. Already 300 years ago Saint Louis de Montfort explained these things well in his classical book, “True Devotion to Mary”.


Our Lady says often “To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons” (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/):
Allow yourselves also to be carried in my motherly arms, with humility, with docility and with meekness” (February 2, 1988). "Beloved sons, live with joy the mystery of the Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple of Jerusalem, and with docility let yourselves also be carried in my motherly arms” (February 2, 1989).


In this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21), “the Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection” (CCC 677). But “IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH!” - Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal, 1917. There will be fulfilled the Protoevangelium (Gen 3:15) – Saint Louis de Montfort!


Those who understand the fundamental message of Jesus understand the fundamental motive for Jesus’ coming to the earth which we say several times during the Holy Mass: “Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy of us”. But today, as the last several popes have told us up to 5 or 6 years ago, the greatest and fundamental sin today is that there is no more sin, we have lost the sense of sin. We believe to be able to resolve the problems of society while very few seek to truly live the Gospel explained in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults. Jesus offered mercy but never compromises with the law, the will of God! A great number of people who even come the church regularly say the words of the Our Father, “THY will be done”, but live, “MY will be done”; the religion exists for so many to satisfy what I want, but not to discover and do the will of God! Very few go to confession today! Very few people and families today pray the Holy Rosary together. The Church, the popes, the saints tell us that the most fundamental evil which destroys society and the souls is SIN!


What happens to the few priests and bishops today who do the fundamental work, to identify and cure, as spiritual doctors, the gravest sicknesses of the souls, mortal sins? THE PRIESTS TODAY WHO PREACH THE WHOLE GOSPEL and all of the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church are labeled ridged and old-fashioned, insensitive, lacking in compassion, divisive, judgmental, moralists. While at the same time the ones who maintain a culpable silence, the ones who tell their people what they think they want to hear are seen as understanding, sympathetic, pastorally sensitive and merciful. But this way of doing things is not true mercy! “Woe to you, when all men speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets” (Lk 6:26). “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God” (Jn 12:43). “How can you believe, who receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” (Jn 5:44; Gal 1:10). But this way of doing is not true mercy! THIS IS FALSE LOVE, MISGUIDED COMPASSION, false mercy, false ecumenism, that does not lead to paradise for all eternity!?!


We do not want to obey God. We do not trust God. Did God give us the Ten Commandments for out good or for our evil? Here are a few words for our times from the The “Prophecy” of Saint Francis (Assisi) (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html):
2. The power of the demons will be greater than usual, the immaculate purity of our religious community and of others, will wither to the point that very few Christians will want to obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with a sincere heart and perfect charity. At the decisive moment of this crisis, a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the mortal poison of his error.


More than 400 years ago, the protestants rejected the guidance of our Holy Mother Church, but a great number of Catholics today in the Church do the same. When Pope Paul VI published the prophetic encyclical, “HUMANAE VITAE” (1968), which confirmed the constant teaching of the Church that it is a mortal sin to use artificial birth control and to use natural birth control for non grave reasons, there was an incredibly strong negative reaction not only from lay people who wanted to enjoy the pleasures of sexual relations without any responsibility or openness to live using contraceptives, but also on the part of a great number of priests and bishops who wanted to please the people, even a few Episcopal conferences (i.e., the “Winnipeg Statement” of the Canadian bishops)! We deserve what is happening today in the world and in the Church as indicated by the Prophecy of Saint Francis of Assisi.


Three years before the publication of “Humanae Vitae”, Saint Michael the Archangel at Garabandal, sent by Our Lady, (Spain, 1965) said: “Many Cardinal, many Bishops and many Priests are on the road to perdition and with them they are bringing many souls”! That is, a great number of bishops and priests preach what people want to hear, a Christianity without the cross of Christ. Visit: “The True Easter! (Good Pastors or Mercenary Pastors?)” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2017/05/the-true-easter.html).


On November 11, 2013, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the Apostolic Nuncio (Papal Ambassador) to the United States, addressed the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops at their annual fall meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
Archbishop Viganò quoted as “profoundly prophetic” remarks made by Blessed John Paul II (then Cardinal Wojtyla) during the Eucharistic Congress on Aug. 13, 1976 for the Bicentennial celebration of the signing of our Declaration of Independence:
We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the FINAL CONFRONTATION between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously….” (Cardinal Ivan Dias also quoted this at Lourdes, France, on December 13, 2007).
Archbishop Viganò said that he viewed these words “as a call to attentiveness, watchfulness and preparedness for whatever proclaiming the Gospel may mean for us as successors of the Apostles, who were called to give radical witness to their faith in Jesus Christ.” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2018/04/the-final-confrontation-john-paul-ii.html)


Pope John Paul II said to a group of pilgrims in Fulda, West Germany, in November 1980, speaking about the secrets of Fatima, that: “We have to be prepared to suffer, before long, great trials which will require of us the disposition to sacrifice even our life for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is still possible to diminish this trial (predicted at Fatima), but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only in this manner can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the renewal of the Church been brought about in blood! It will not be different this time.” (http://www.fatima.org/thirdsecret/fulda.asp).


The eighth Station of the Cross indicates to us this also when “Jesus turning to them said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For behold, the days are coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never gave suck’!” (Lk 23:26-30). This is precisely what is said today in the culture of death, to not have babies. Jesus was speaking especially about our generation: “the days are coming when they will say…”. “Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us'; and to the hills, 'Cover us.' For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?"


In the final message of the Blessed Virgin, October 13, 1973, on the anniversary of the last apparition and of the miracle of Fatima, at Akita, Japan, she said to Sister Agnes Sasagawa: “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. WITH THE ROSARY, PRAY FOR THE POPE, THE BISHOPS, AND THE PRIESTS. The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees, churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromise and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.” (http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/akita.htm).


Do we trust ourselves or the Queen of heaven and earth, the “Seat of Wisdom”? Each person makes his own eternal choice!

Take courage Laura! Let us follow Jesus and his Mother in this great battle. “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14). Thus we must be “wise as serpents and innocent as doves” (Mt 10:16), with true humility to follow our heavenly Mother who God has given the job to be the leader of this, the greatest battle in the history against Satan and his very numerous followers today! Satan conquers a great number of souls with pride. Instead Mary, “According to the divine plan, "a woman clothed with the sun" (Rev 12: 1) came down from heaven to this earth to visit the privileged CHILDREN of the Father” (John Paul II, Homily at Fatima, May 13, 2000). Visit: “The Woman Clothed With the Sun and the Red Dragon” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/01/woman-vs-dragon.html); “The Woman Clothed With The Sun In Search Of The Little Ones” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/02/children-of-woman.html); “The Rosary: The Prayer of the Little Ones for the Victory” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/03/rosary-victory.html).

MANY BELIEVE THE FREEMASONS ARE SIMPLY A CENTURIES OLD CHARITABLE FRATERNITY. However, the Catholic Church has consistently condemned Freemasonry more than any other error in its history because it promotes indifferentism, naturalism, communism, and other dangerous philosophies. Masonry is working to create a world dictatorship in a subtle and hidden way, the New World Order. Masonry has assassinate various presidents of the USA who began to mint money by the government, such as Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and others. Those who become 33 degree Masons must swear the oath: “Ordo Ab Chao”, meaning Order out of Chaos. “Masonry is a true and specific Satanic Sect. The esoteric studies, up to the 18th degree include spiritism and magic, from the 24th degree one becomes “Militia of Satan”, from the 28th degree to the 33rd degree “Mystical Body of Satan”, this is the reality of Masonry” – testimony of Cesare Ghinelli, ex Mason. “Satan is the only god of our planet” - H. P. Blavatsky (Mason).
The more important and fundamental goal, the first target of Masonry, directed by their head Lucifer, Satan, is to destroy the Body of Christ with Christ as the Head, the Catholic Church. The Holy Spirit is the Soul of the Church and the Church is the soul of the world. That which sustains and gives life to the Body of Christ is the divine Food, the Eucharist. The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life”.” (Vat. II: LG 11; CCC 1324). This is why they must eliminated the Eucharist, at least in the public churches.“From the 24th degree one becomes “Militia of Satan”; up to this 24th degree the members of Masonry do not realize who they are really working for!!! (“The Eucharist in the Catacombs”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2017/10/the-eucharist-in-catacombs.html).


Eight popes have condemned Masonry since 1738 (https://www.ewtn.com/library/NEWAGE/PACONDEM.TXT).
Most recently: Congregation For The Doctrine Of The Faith: Declaration On Masonic Associations:
Therefore the Church’s negative judgment in regard to Masonic association remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion.” (November 26, 1983; http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19831126_declaration-masonic_en.html).

Why did immigration begin suddenly at the level of biblical proportions? Who or which groups have caused this and are financing the causes of this immigration at the level of biblical proportions in the USA and in Europe? For what motives? Why are so many very important leaders in the governments and in the Catholic Church promoting “UNCONTROLLED immigration” instead of “CONTROLLED immigration” according to the immigration laws of each country? Controlled immigration is good for each country and also good for the immigrants. Uncontrolled immigration does great harm to the countries and also to the immigrants!

The Final Confrontation – John Paul II


The Final Confrontation – Pope John Paul II


Few people realize or want to realize the gravity of the situation today; we have let ourselves become attached to the things of this world or to the glory before men instead of the eternal things of heaven. Few people realize or want to realize that to ignore or to change the laws of God, for our own priorities and convenience, will have, later, greater consequences than an atomic bomb. It is much easier and more gratifying to be “politically correct”. “Ignorance Is Bliss!” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/06/ignorance-is-bliss.html). “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away” (Mk 31:31). “Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished” (Mt 5:17-18; 24,35).


On November 11, 2013, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the Apostolic Nuncio (Papal Ambassador) to the United States, addressed the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops at their annual fall meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
Archbishop Viganò quoted as “profoundly prophetic” remarks made by Blessed John Paul II (then Cardinal Wojtyla) during the Eucharistic Congress on Aug. 13, 1976 for the Bicentennial celebration of the signing of our Declaration of Independence:
We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the FINAL CONFRONTATION between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously….” (Cardinal Ivan Dias also quoted this at Lourdes, France, on December 13, 2007).
Archbishop Viganò said that he viewed these words “as a call to attentiveness, watchfulness and preparedness for whatever proclaiming the Gospel may mean for us as successors of the Apostles, who were called to give radical witness to their faith in Jesus Christ.”


Pope John Paul II said to a group of pilgrims in Fulda, West Germany, in November 1980, speaking about the secrets of Fatima, that: “We have to be prepared to suffer, before long, great trials which will require of us the disposition to sacrifice even our life for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is still possible to diminish this trial (predicted at Fatima), but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only in this manner can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the renewal of the Church been brought about in blood! It will not be different this time.” (http://www.fatima.org/thirdsecret/fulda.asp).


We remember the dramatic words pronounced by Pope Paul VI on June 29 1972, after the Second Vatican Council, denouncing that “By some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered into the temple of God… One no longer trusts the Church; so many trust in the first profane prophet, who speaks to us in a magazine or in some social slogans, in order to run after him and ask him if he has the formula of true life. And we do not realize instead that we have already become lords and teachers. Doubt has entered our consciences, and it has entered through the windows which were meant to have been opened to the light. This state of uncertainty reigns even in the Church. It was hoped that after the Council there would be a day of sunlight in the history of the Church. Instead, there came a day of clouds, of darkness, of groping, of uncertainty…” (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/paul_vi/homilies/1972/documents/hf_p-vi_hom_19720629_it.html).


A few months before Pope Paul VI died, on September 8, 1977, he confirmed this grave judgment in a conversation with Jean Guitton. Here are the words of Paul VI recounted by the French philosopher:
"There is a great disturbance at this moment in the world and in the Church, and what is in question is the faith. It happens now that I find myself repeating the obscure saying of Jesus in the Gospel of Saint Luke: 'When the Son of man returns, will he find faith on the earth?' It happens that books are published in which important points of the faith are undermined, that the bishops are silent, that these books are not found to be strange. This, according to me, is strange. I read again every once in a while the Gospel of the end times and I realize that in this moment there is emerging some signs of the end times. Are we near the end? This we will never know. It is necessary to always be ready, but everything can still last quite a while. What strikes me, when I consider the Catholic world, is that a non-Catholic type of thought seems to predominate sometimes within Catholicism, and this non-Catholic thought might become the stronger one within Catholicism in the future. But it will never represent the thought of the Church. A small flock must remain, however small it may be." (http://chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it/articolo/23572?).


There is less prayer than ever before, more sin than ever before, even worse, indifference as if sin no longer exists, and so we have given much greater power to “the father of lies”, Satan (Jn 8:44). In particular Satan has more power to “disguise himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14), to offer his very deadly beautiful lies as if they were the “truth that sets us free” (Jn 8:32)!
Thus it is very important in these times of great confusion, when even Catholic bishops are no longer in agreement about the fundamentals of our faith and morals, to not only pray much and to study the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults, but to keep our eyes open so as not to fall into the beautiful lies of Satan presented as if they were the Truth!

The Abomination of Desolation


The Abomination of Desolation


Dear friends,
On April 23, 2018, when attempting to make a new post in a Facebook group, for the first time ever, suddenly while posting, I received the following message:
Action Blocked
- You're temporarily restricted from joining and posting to groups that you do not manage until Thursday at 12:39am. (which is exactly 3 days later)
- If you think you're seeing this by mistake, please let us know.


Recently the same thing happened to a friend of mine, after trying to join a group supporting baby Alfie Evans. I have discovered that this temporary restriction also happens when you do not join certain groups in which you are invited by certain “friends” which you subsequently “unfriend”. This same strategy is used internationally by giving money (stolen from us in an underhanded ways – banks, printing money, inflation, deflation, etc.) to groups that promote the culture of death and obstructing, in many ways, the groups that promote the culture of life. As the New World Order becomes more and more heavy handed, their techniques will become more and more out in the open and dictatorial. When they finally arrive to the final stage, the NWO will make Hitler’s dictatorship seem like a picnic, foretold by Christ (Mt 24:21)!




Were the saints politically correct as are many religious leaders today? Did the saints take the great risk to seek to warn the sheep of the hidden powerful traps of the wolf, in their particular time and history, that leads a great number of souls to eternal destruction? Were the saints “ALL DUMB DOGS, THAT CANNOT BARK” (Is 56:10) like so many priests and bishops today?!? Why were most of the prophets of the Old Testament killed, along with our Savior Jesus Christ? How many people or groups or religious congregations today do as the saints, or as a courageous nun like Mother Angelica (1923 – 2016) who was ready to lose even her television network, EWTN, so as not to betray or compromise the Eternal Truth, Jesus Christ (Jn 14:6), so as to maintain the proper priorities, in particular, the salvation of souls?!? Just as all the saints, Mother Angelica was not attached to the glory before men (Lk 16:15; 6:26; Jn 5:44; 12,39-43; Mt 6:1-6. 16-18)! “Martyrdom is a witness which all Christians must be willing to make” – Pope John Paul II.


Before “the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition … only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed…” (2Thess 2:3-8). Above all what is “RESTRAINING” the “man of lawlessness” is the presence of Jesus Christ as the Truth (Jn 14:6) and especially His real presence in the Most Holy Eucharist of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; Satan seeks to trivialize both so as to deprive us of God’s guidance and His powerful protection and help. Before the manifestation of the Antichrist, “the continual burnt offering” (Dan 8:11; 12:11), will be taken away, and the “sacrifice and offering” will cease (Dan 9:27), which Jesus foretold (Mt 24:15). This sacrilege is the ultimate “ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION” (Mt 24:15; Mk 13:14; 2Thess 2:3-4; Dan 9:27; 11:31; 12:11)!


Dear friends, I was hoping to talk about these serous things more gradually. “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14). “Be wise as serpents and innocent as doves” (Mt 10:16).
This deception, this lose of the Eucharist, “the source and summit of the Christian life” (Vat. II: LG 11; CCC 1324), is being done slowly and in such a way that as few Catholics as possible will realize the lose of our greatest treasure and strength on earth, the real sacramental presence of Jesus Christ. The focus of attention has been intentionally shifted from adoration of God to man as the center of the Liturgy. Even fewer Catholics know the four conditions necessary for a valid Mass. None of this could happen if the priests and bishops of the Catholic Church would obey the Liturgical Books of the Catholic Church; Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict ordered the founders of the Neocatecumenal Way to obey the Liturgical Books but they refused obey (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/02/the-neocatecumenal-mass.html).
The Sacrifice of the Mass renews that which was accomplished by Jesus on Calvary. By accepting the Protestant doctrine, people will hold that the Mass is not a sacrifice but only a sacred meal, that is to say, a remembrance of that which Jesus did at his Last Supper. And thus, the celebration of Holy Mass will be suppressed. In this abolition of the daily Sacrifice consists THE HORRIBLE SACRILEGE accomplished by the Antichrist, which will last about three and a half years, namely, one thousand two hundred and ninety days” (December 31, 1992; “To The Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons”; http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/).
Saint Padre Pio said: "It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the HOLY MASS." This saint also said: “The ROSARY is the weapon for these times”! Stay close to the Sacraments and pass as much time as possible praying the Holy Rosary before the Most Blessed Sacrament while our Eucharistic Lord is still in the tabernacles of our public churches!


Do not despise prophesying” (1Thess 5:20; 1Cor 14:31), as do so many today who think they are intelligent and wise (Mt 11:25; Lk 10:21)! “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).


Up to now, I have succeeded in defending myself from hackers entering into my computer. If I am blocked again on Facebook, perhaps for even a longer period of time or even indefinitely, and you do not hear from me and I do not respond to your comments, and you would like to communicate with me or see other articles of mine, go to one of my websites and you will find at least one of my email addresses. If you cannot find one of my websites, you might try putting into Google a few of the following key words: josephdwight, joseph-dwight-index, giuseppedwight, giuseppe-dwight-indice, Father Joseph Dwight, Don Jo (Joseph) Dwight.


All things are possible if we trust Jesus through Mary. We must stay very close to Jesus in the Sacraments and in Eucharistic adoration with Mary’s Holy Rosary in hand. In this way we will become habituated to looking at Jesus through Mary so as to even be able to gratefully embrace the gift of martyrdom (Rev 7:9-17) or to even walk on water, as did Peter (Mt 14:22-33), rather than sinking into the high waves by looking at ourselves or at the great spiritual and temporal storm in the next few years!


In this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21), “the Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection” (CCC 677). But “IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH!” - Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal, 1917. There will be fulfilled the Protoevangelium (Gen 3:15) – Saint Louis de Montfort!

The Great Danger of Triumphalism



The Great Danger of Triumphalism




On April 16, 2018, the administrators of the Facebook group ‘One Million Connected Catholics’ did not publish my post: “How many Catholics today could answer simple questions such as the following? … “Who Decides The Truth?” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2014/06/who-decides-truth.html). (See below for the complete post.)
In the Description for the group ‘One Million Connected Catholics’, we find: “Dan Burke established One Million Connected Catholics. … You can ALWAYS post things from the National Catholic Register and any EWTN News outlet…”
EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo: ‘Good Catholics’ can’t ignore controversy over Pope Francis”


Satan is pushing many people off the Barque of Peter, the Church, on the “port side” (left side), who do not follow the laws of God infallibly interpreted by the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. But also on the “starboard side” (the right side) of the Barque of Church, there are many who believe they have the “fullness of the truth and means of sanctification” and thus do not feel they need to dialogue with anyone or any group who do not totally agree with themselves, as did the Pharisees and Scribes, and as have done so many people and groups in the Church and outside of the Church throughout the 2000-year history of the Church, especially today in a world and in a Church full of crisis and confusion. It is true that the one true Church, the Catholic Church, has the “fullness of the truth and means of sanctification” (Lumen Gentium, no. 8), but an individual person or an individual group in the Church is not the Magisterium of the Church, and thus does not have the guarantee, the charism of infallibility, to INTERPRET the doctrines of the Church infallibly. This is why the humility to take the risk to dialogue is always necessary, as Pope John Paul II often encouraged us to do. It is so easy to slide back into what the Second Vatican Council sought to eradicate - to bring the Church back to true humility and to eliminate in the Church this TRIUMPHALISM of being the true Church, with the fullness of Truth and the means of sanctification (LG 8) (“Evangelization VS the Trilogy of Devils in the Church: Triumphalism, Clericalism and Juridicalism”; http://trueevangelization.blogspot.com). In the mentality of triumphalism it is very important to maintain the hierarchical structure so as to maintain and to not loose ones importance before men (Jn 5:44; Lk 16:15; Gal 1:10)!


There is a Facebook group, of which I am a part of, called, ‘CATHOLIC AND PROUD’; perhaps a better title would be ‘Catholic and Humble and Grateful’!


The liberals do not realize, or perhaps do not care, that to change the truths, expressed in the doctrines of the Church, will have very great devastating effects both here on earth and after death. In the first centuries of the Church many wars were fought over these precious truths; now few even care about these safeguards of life, liberty and happiness. Very few have their eyes open, on both the left or the right extremes, regarding the disguised beautiful lies presented as if they were the truth, and the half truths which are worse than lies. Saint Thomas Aquinas tells us that virtue lies in the middle between the two extremes which is usually the more difficult path requiring constant maintenance, much patience, discernment and humility.


It is interesting how the two extremes meet: the liberals decide the truth for themselves, in the “Modern Church”, putting aside 2000 years of the illumination of the Holy Spirit written down in the doctrines of the Church, while many “orthodox” people believe they have all the truth and so become complacent and they feel they no longer need to dialogue with those of good will who are not in their group, and thus no longer seek to discover if their INTERPRETATION is the true interpretation of the truth outside of themselves or outside of their group, and thus slide into self sufficiency, spiritual blindness and self closure. Often in this period of crisis these groups end up separating themselves from the Church and become schismatic traditionalists (http://schis-trad.blogspot.it/2008/03/rebuttal-to-schismatic-traditionalists.html). In this “dour combat” (CCC 409) of life, there is no guarantee for anyone, in whatever vocation or group, to make it to heaven until we are in heaven or in purgatory; we must persevere in struggling for true humility until the moment of our death. St. Augustine said, 'If you should ask me what are the ways of God, I would tell you that the first is humility, the second is humility, and the third is humility. Not that there are no other precepts to give, but if humility does not precede all that we do, our efforts our meaningless.'


Just about all the independent protestant groups believe they interpret Sacred Scripture infallibly, even though there are many fundamental contradictions among themselves, while many Catholic groups feel they INTERPRET Sacred Scripture and the doctrines of the Church infallibly as if they are the Magisterium of the Church. The protestants rejected the guidance of Holy Mother Church, but a great number of Catholics today in the Church do the same. There was a great rebellion against Humanae Vitae (1968); we deserve what is happening today in the world and in the Church (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html)! Certainly today there is a great tendency in this direction, to seek security, due to the cultural crisis and especially due to the great confusion in the Church herself, when many bishops and cardinals are no longer in agreement about the immutable fundamental doctrines of the Magisterium of the Church, as foretold by Our Lady at Akita, Japan, October 13, 1973. We are truly in the period of the great apostasy before the advent of the Antichrist (2Thess 2:3) when even the elect will be deceived if possible (Mt 24:24)! Just as Christ was crucified 2000 years ago, the Body of Christ, the Church, will be crucified in this period of the purification of the Church (CCC 677)!


We must all struggle to not slide into complacency and to struggle for the truth in our lives every day until we die, else we slide automatically into the subtle traps of Satan who disguises himself as an angel of light (2Cor 11:14). In this short life, he who does not go forward goes backward! So many, including a great number of priests and bishops today, no longer have the persevering humility to answer Philip’s question, “Do you understand what you are reading?”, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” (Acts 8:30-31), by being willing to listen and dialogue with those of good will not in agreement with themselves, with the documents of the Church on the table. Saint Thomas Aquinas, quoting Saint Augustine, recalled “St. Paul made a correction to the first pope Peter and he made this publicly not privately” (Summa Theologica, Second Part, Question 33, Article 4). St. Augustine said Peter was so humble and so wise that he accepted this correction. He did not say, ‘You are Paul, you are against me. You are heretical. You are schismatic.’ No, he accepted this with gratitude and so should be the Pope in these days (the “Dubia”!?!), and so should any other person or group who has TRUE humility and charity, who are seeking the Truth that comes from outside of themselves, from God. This is because the Truth comes from God, the Author of Truth, the Truth is God (Jn 14:6). The Truth does not come from any human being and not even from the Church, the Bride of Christ, the handmaid of the Truth, the protector of the Truth.


Another way of saying what Raymond Arroyo is saying is ‘Good Catholics’ cannot follow the easier way: “Ignorance Is Bliss!” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/06/ignorance-is-bliss.html). “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Mt 7:13-14)! “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and BECOME LIKE CHILDREN, you will never enter the Kingdom of heaven” (Mt 18:3)!


- - - - - - -


Here is my complete post of April 16, 2018 in several groups in Facebook:


How many Catholics today could answer simple questions such as the following?
Does the Truth come from God or from the Church? Is the Church the handmaid of the Truth or the Author of the Truth? Does the Truth change with the world and the times or does the world have to change according to God’s laws and Truth? Was Christ just playing with words when he said: “I am the way, and the TRUTH, and the life” (Jn 14:6)? When Christ said, “The Truth will make you free!” (Jn 8:32), was he referring to the truth of the world or the immutable Truth of God? “Christ said “I am the truth”; He did NOT say, “I am the custom”.” – St. Toribio. “We do not need a Church that is moved by the world, but a Church that moves the world” – G.K. Chesterton.
There is less prayer than ever before, more sin than ever before, even worse, indifference as if sin no longer exists, and so we have given much greater power to “the father of lies”, Satan (Jn 8:44). In particular Satan has more power to “disguise himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14), to offer his very deadly beautiful lies as if they were the “truth”, but instead does us great harm.
Thus it is very important in these times of great confusion, when even Catholic bishops are no longer in agreement about the fundamentals of our faith and morals, to not only pray much and to study the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC, ed. 1992!!!), but to keep our eyes open so as not to fall into the beautiful lies of Satan presented as if they were the Truth, or the half truths presented as if they were the whole and integral Truth! A HALF TRUTH IS WORSE THAN A LIE!
